BILLINGSGATE POST: Perhaps the best known of all wartime profiteers, 1st. Lieutenant Milo Minderbinder is a fictional character in Joseph Heller's novel Catch-22. Like the Clintons, he has no allegiance to any country, person or principle unless it pays him.
Since being named head of the Clinton Foundation, Minderbinder has turned things around quickly for the Clintons. In his latest uranium deal, which is very much like one of his fictional deals in Catch 22, the Clinton Foundation buys uranium from the USA for $24.00 per pound, sells it back to Canada at $26.00 per pound, Canada sells it to Russia for $29.00, and in the final step, the USA buys it back from Vladimir Putin (who now has an international syndicate that controls the world price) at $31.00. For greasing this transaction, the Clintons become billionaires. Slick Willie is made the Apostolic Nuncio of NATO, Notary Sojac to the Sultan of Brunei, Honorary Shah of Iran, Caliph of Somolia, and the god of corn, rain and rice in various pagan countries.
President Obama, who so far has discretely distanced himself from the Clintons, announced today that they can be trusted because "anyone who would steal from the country he loved would not steal from anyone else because there is plenty to go around."
Ironically, Milo will ultimately betray Bill and Hillary by running off with Chelsea after convincing her that they can make more money by cornering the Swiss Cheese market and selling the holes back to the Foundation.
