Hello all,

I recently wrote Warren Farrell about his proposal to create a White House Council on Boys and Men. I suggested that the Clintons might be a good source of support for reasons that I describe below. He thought the idea was a good one and asked me if I had any people connections that might provide a good inroad into their organization. I'm looking into that through my personal connections to the USA. Do any of you have any suggestions for him?

Sincerely,

GAATT

My original suggestion:
"Have you ever considered approaching the Clinton's (https://www.clintonfoundation.org/) about supporting your White House Council project (see: http://www.warrenfarrell.name/)?

I saw an article recently about Hillary's claim that Bill was abused as a boy by his mother (see: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics...ticle-1.1877769). Given Bill's history of rape and sex addiction, he might be interested in contributing to positive change for men with a childhood history like his own. Support for male survivors is weak. It could be an indirect way for him to make up for the damage he has done to himself and others."

The more I look into this the worse it gets (see: http://www.thepoliticalinsider.com/huge-news-bill-clinton-may-end-hillarys-career-shocking/). I imagine this is old news to many of you and obviously I'm not up on the news much, but Clinton caught connected to a pedophile ring? I wonder how much its going to take before he decides to seek help? It's sad being that the Clintons have shown such a strong interest in gender equality.

Consider the sources of that "news."

Hi Mike,

I'm not really familiar with the reliability of this source. Perhaps its just a gossip rag. The connection between Clinton and Epstein, however, shows up in a number of other sources on-line. I hope its just that Clinton is an easy target for this kind of rumour and that his dealings with Epstein had nothing to do with sex crimes.

Thanks for the heads up!

Sincerely,

GAATT

There have been multiple sources on the underage sex tourism ring of which Bill Clinton is only one participant and which includes people involved in both US political parties.

For nearly a decade I have been involved in an organization of former sex workers helping each other leave and avoid returning to the industry. Powerful political and financial figures are often also involved in this part of the trade. It is an outgrowth of their overall search for power.

Don't Idolize human beings or political organizations. They will disappoint. Books and cats are more trustworthy than people.

Hi MrEdd. I don't idolize human beings, I just don't consider Barbreit or the New York Daily News to be neutral reporters of the news -- they have a definite agenda.
