We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

Hillary's college thesis. I thought that Wellesley had it under lock and key.
Count me a skeptic: I see nothing in the paper giving an historical context or a political science context for the subject matter, which one would expect from a Wellesley girl. Well, unless she was one of those 60s types for whom history and political philosophy were "irrelevant" to the brave new world.

I'm almost exactly her age, and the typing looks like the typed papers we did in 1969.
Real or not it is a great move on someones part.
The only way she will be able to successfully refute the authenticity of the document is to produce the original.
All the analysts in hell could not prove it otherwise.
Wellesley will now come under intense pressure to explain why they made this one time exception aiding in Hillary's lifetime deception. This could get real interesting when the big brains finish picking all of the radical aspects that Hillary once supported. She'll either be forced to stand by her thesis of refute it.
Since she was from Chicago it was almost a natural fro her to pick Alinsky. He once let Mayor Dailey know that if the city workers didn't get a raise he would screw up the opening of O'Hare Airport. The Mayor called him on it so the day the airport opened and hundreds of flights began to arrive the deplaning passingers found ALL of the bathroom urinals and toilets ocupied by union people. Needless to say people were literally pissing in their pants.
The Mayor open talks the next day. Alinsky was a master at radical organization ..Hillary is going to wet herself over this.
What The Heck Is The Alinsky Method
Being Used To Destroy Our Freedoms
Albert V. Burns
The education establishment in this country, at all levels, continually decries the absence of parental involvement in the everyday process of educating the young people of this country. We are asked to volunteer time to ease the burdens on the teachers. We are NOT expected to assume that we will have any input into decisions effecting what they will be taught or how the teaching process is to be done.
In the book, "Educating For The New World Order," the author, Bev Eakman points out repeatedly the necessity of the educationists to preserve the ILLUSION that there is: "Lay, or community, participation in the decision making process, while in fact lay citizens are being squeezed out."
It is interesting, and EXTREMELY important to Americans, both as parents and as citizens, to clearly understand just HOW the "squeezing out" process takes place. It is a well defined, if not well perceived, process known as the "Alinsky Method" (which was derived from a procedure named as "The Delphi Technique.") This method of manipulating people is based on the fact that people in groups tend to share a common knowledge base and display certain identifiable characteristics known as "group dynamics."
In this process, one or more people known as "Change Agents" or "Facilitators" appear to be acting as organizers, "allowing" each person in the group to express their concerns about some program or policy under consideration. While this process is going on, people are urged to make lists or form into task forces. The Facilitator carefully notes which members of the group are leaders, which are "loud mouths" and which may be easily swayed to different viewpoints.
At a certain point, the previously friendly Change Agent begins to act as "devilís advocate," becoming an agitator. The process involves playing one part of the group against another, the "divide and conquer" technique. Anyone who is not clearly in accord with the Facilitatorís agenda is made to appear ridiculous, inarticulate, ignorant or dogmatic. The idea is to make these members of the group angry thus escalating tensions. The end object being to shut opposition voices out of the group.
The "targets" of such manipulation rarely, if ever, realize how they are being manipulated. If they do suspect, they generally have no idea how to defeat the process.
This method is being used at all levels of government to force meetings toward PRESET conclusions. There are three steps to defeating this process. They are simple to learn, if not always easy to put into practice since the Facilitators are well trained in agitation techniques.
The first rule is: Always be charming, pleasant and courteous. SMILE! Speak in a normal voice to avoid seeming to be belligerent or aggressive.
Rule No. 2 is to STAY FOCUSED! Write your question or statement down in advance to help you stay on track. These Change Agents are trained to twist the conversation around to make the questioner appear foolish or belligerent or aggressive. The idea being to put the questioner on the defensive. Be careful! As mentioned in Rule 1, always be charming, pleasant and courteous (if it kills you to do so!) Often an attempt will be made to change the subject, digress or distort your intent. Always bring them back to the question you asked! If they distort your question into what amounts to an accusation of them, simply state clearly and precisely: "That is NOT what I stated. What I asked was..."(here repeat your original question.) Do not be distracted or angered by their efforts to make you look bad.
Rule No. 3: BE PERSISTENT! When the Facilitator realizes that putting you on the defensive is not going to work, quite often he, or she, will go into some long drawn out discussion of some unrelated or only vaguely related subject. Such a discussion may drag on for a number of minutes. The intent being to have the crowd become bored and forget what the original question was. Let them run on, then very calmly, quietly but with determination drag them back to the subject by saying: "But you didnít answer my question! My question was..."(again repeat your question.)
Never, NEVER allow yourself to become angry. Anger directed toward the Change Agent makes him or her the victim. Their object is to become liked by the crowd, to be seen as a friend by a majority of those present to convince that majority the ideas of the Facilitator are correct and acceptable.
With the increasing demand for education reform, increasing agitation among the public and more and more grassroots research exposing the defects in our current government indoctrination centers, also known as public schools, more and more people are being exposed to this Alinsky method of maneuvering public meetings toward preset goals. Somehow, people walk out of public meetings wondering just what happened - how were their ideas and objections so neatly derailed. This consistent pattern of manipulation of public meetings is causing concern about the corruption of the very process of government established by our Founding Fathers.
Next week we will examine some of the finer points of the Delphi Technique, how and why it was originally developed and how it is being used to destroy our freedoms.
Albert V. Burns writes from Utah and is a regular columnist for the Spanish Fork Press. He has an extensive knowledge of the conspiracy which has been working so hard to destroy this nation and incorporate it into a one world government. He has developed an extensive personal research library and the knowledge to find what he needs, to write his columns. He is a regular columnist for Ether Zone.

The Delphi Technique will be Hillary's saving grace. Here are a few points to ponder but note that it was developed by the Rand Corporation, a widely repected think tank ,research organization used in many top secret government projects. No doubt Hillary will fall back to this position in lieu of attempting to defend the Alinsky Method.
The Delphi Technique
The Delphi technique is a method for obtaining forecasts from a panel of independent experts over two or more rounds. Experts are asked to predict quantities. After each round, an administrator provides an anonymous summary of the expertsí forecasts and their reasons for them. When expertsí forecasts have changed little between rounds, the process is stopped and the final round forecasts are combined by averaging. Delphi [pron: delfI] is based on well-researched principles and provides forecasts that are more accurate than those from unstructured groups (Rowe and Wright 1999, Rowe and Wright 2001).
The technique can be adapted for use in face-to-face meetings, and is then called mini-Delphi or Estimate-Talk-Estimate (ETE). Delphi has been widely used in business.
The Delphi method was developed, over a period of years, at the Rand Corporation at the beginning of the cold war to forecast the impact of technology on warfare.  A number of events influenced the development.
In 1944, General Arnold ordered the creation of the report for the U.S. Air Force on the future technological capabilities that might be used by the military. Two years later, Douglas Aircraft company started Project RAND to study "the broad subject of inter-continental warfare other than surface".

A paranoid might take note of the college's ad-hoc cooperation in having sealed the paper all these years, and wonder if, under the pressure of the current candidacy and the publicity of that odd sealing of the paper, that the college may have cooperated further and allowed a recent, and edited, version to be be concocted for the sudden and inexplicable release.
Document cleansing was a specialty in Clinton I and II. Always enough of the lesser-damning material is allowed to remain, in order to create an illusion of veracity.
One must remember, the socialist personality is proud to be corrupt. This phenom has an analog in radical Islam; it's called Taquiya, or Taqiyaa, or some such spelling. Doctrinal disinformation.
I really--REALLY--hate to do, or say, anything that would assist this gal in ANY way. HOWEVER, I am to understand that she did not begin, or complete, an advanced degree? At what time, and when, in her "academic" career was she in London? In my undergraduate years, I was very concerned about the American Indians, who at that time were still kept on "reservations". However, my later academic work was a long distance from that subject, and is more an integral part of the adult I became.
This undergraduate paper of MZ Clinton's is important because it demonstrates a very sophisticated understanding of "local"(Chicago), current(at that time) union activities, as justified by a detailed socialist theorist. It is light years ahead of the sophistication that my paper presented. This gal at that time had older mentors that were coaching her directly from the field of experience. Which may explain why I have never found ANY media article about MZ Clinton's parents. NO DETAILS ABOUT HER CHILDHOOD--they could be out there--but, I haven't seen them. If there was an attempt at a graduate education we need to see that--if that degree was awarded--it IS public information.
We will find out 50 years from now that both Bill and Hillary were recruited by the KGB.
I have mentioned this a number of times since they both fit the ideal profile.
It could even be known now but being kept from the population because of the "trauma" etc bullshit that governments use to control their populations by saying we couldn't handle the truth. The Warren Commission did the same thing with evidence in the assassination of JFK...sealed the evidence for 50 years.
I pointed out months ago that to this day we do not know what Bill Clinton did while he was illegally in the Soviet Union while he was suppose to be at Oxford...We do know he immediately came back and organized anti-war protest against the US involvement in Vietnam .. coincidence? yeah and pigs fly.
At two large universities that I am slightly familiar with there are courses (women only) that teach young women in their senior year to "take charge of a meeting". I saw one of these kids in action once--what a piece of programming. It was stunning. She was the youngest student on a committee to chosse "professor of the year".
She first went against the group by introducing a candidate (lesbian) that had not even been discussed. Then she pointed out the "Christian" quality of her volunteer actions (habitat for humanit in Central America). Then she diminished the academic accomplishments of the other professors. When the group began to use the electoral process to eliminate her candidate (vote strategizing)she started to cry (very dainty crying). Then she accused everyone in the group of being homophobic (none were, but none were gay either). Then with the changing of a chameleon she re-structured the eletion process with a "don't you think" if we hold this election "this way"(mine) IT is more equitable? She had so much knowledge of group management and election strategy it was STUNNING! The rest of us were just there to have an informed conversation about who was the best professor--she had been sent with another agenda and the tools to make it happen through "meeting management". She won by the way.
Thanks for the link, MF communards. I'm glad this material, although still unverified, is beginning to receive the attention it deserves.
The points raised here and hopefully elsewhere will create an opportunity to reframe this issue: instead of the Clintons' enemies and skeptics claiming sour grapes for lack of access to a basic document, the burden can at last shift to them, and to Wellesley, to verify (or refute) this copy of her original intellectual effort. For the moment that is the best success we can hope for.
What I am trying to do throughout is to maintain a posture of principled defiance: Let her entire record come to light, let us have the opportunity to weigh it - all of it - and make our best cases, for or against her candidacy, based on it.
right --even Brenev's grandmother could've hookered him into a weak position. Or Andropov's hamsters.
Can we find a graduate degree? What about graduate studies--where did she do them?
Awww sweet--yes, I had forgotten about that. My apologies! I have even forgotten (if I ever knew) her maiden name. For a copy of her work one can do any of the following:
1. Purchasing a copy directly from ProQuest. The URL for their online order service is http://www.umi.com/hp/Products/Dissertations.html
2. Going through the traditional Interlibrary Loan method through your local library. (If, as in WA state, your local librarian belongs to a union--forget this process!)
3. You can try a keyword search in Google under the category scholar (a slight possibility).
Of course one might try to connect with a librarian at the ABA.
Excuse me--I am working from home here and not at all familiar with law school. It is my understanding that some law schools require a thesis--but, others only require a test score. Yale is very liberal now and ashamed of it's Christian heritage--so don't be surprised if they also do not play nice.
If you know her maiden name you could try here:
