Former U.S. President William Jefferson Rockefeller???
Have you ever wondered how that "poor" boy from Arkansas got to be a multi-term Governor of the State of Arkansas and a two-term President of the United States of America. The Governor of a state that was essentially owned by the former Republican Governor of Arkansas Winthrop Rockefeller. How did Clinton afford Georgetown, Oxford & Yale University Law School, and then jump into politics; it costs a lot of money to run for public office, even back then?
There has long been speculation about the real identity of the actual biological father of the former United States President William Jefferson Clinton. According to Bill Clinton's White House biography his real father was Bill Blythe III, who had been killed in an automobile accident before the President was even born; however many in Arkansas claim that Blythe had only been back in the United States for six months prior to Clinton's birth.
William Jefferson Clinton ran for the United States House of Representatives (not the Arkansas State house) less than six month after getting his law degree from Yale Law School. He served as Jimmy Carter's Arkansas state campaign manager, while also teaching at the University of Arkansas School of Law, and also manages to get himself elected as the Arkansas State attorney general in 1976, and elected as the governor of the state of Arkansas in 1978 (having only been in public services for less than two (2) years).
This means that Bill Clinton began campaigning for the Arkansas U.S. congressional seat while he was still in law school at Yale University. The he ran a statewide campaign for state attorney general, while running another statewide presidential campaign for Jimmy Carter and taught law school when??...all at the same time. Then with less than a year experience as the state's top judicial officer, he begins campaigning as the state's governor and actually wins...just five years out of law school and then the youngest state governor in the United States of America.
Winthrop Rockefeller was son of John D. Rockefeller, Jr. and Abby Greene Aldrich, and the grandson of John Davison Rockefeller, Sr. who founded the Standard Oil Company. His brothers were John D. III, David, Nelson and Laurence Rockefeller. Winthrop Rockefeller also went to Yale University, 1931-1934.
He marries Barbara "Bobo" Sears in 1948, the beautiful daughter of an impoverished farmer; who the press had a field day with, often referring to her as "Cinderella." Winthrop enters into his self-admitted playboy period, then he as Barbara move from New York City to central Arkansas in 1953; with Win establishing Winrock Enterprises and Winrock Cattle Farms atop the Petit Jean Mountain. Winthrop quickly finds himself in a stormy and very well publicized divorce battle, and was ordered to pay her $5,500,000 in 1954. He was remarried two years later, in 1956, to Jeanette Edris a hotel and theater heiress.
In 1966, despite the fact that there are less than 20% of registered Republicans in the State of Arkansas, Winthrop Rockefeller is elected Governor of the state of Arkansas and has some notable achievements. Horrified by conditions in the Arkansas prison system, he completely overhauls it by establishing the new Arkansas Department of Corrections. He worked to improve the state's dismal educational performance, by securing funding for new school construction and increased teacher salaries. He also built strong bridges with the states black communities, demanding an integrated draft board for the first time.
In 1968, he was the only Southern state governor to publicly mourn the assignation of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; stating to the television media from the steps of the Arkansas State capital, "I am not my brother’s keeper. I am my brother’s brother." Rockefeller decisions as Governor provided the state's traditional old guard enough reason to back a young and energetic Dale Bumpers democratic candidate, who defeated him in November 1970.
Still troubled by the state's prison system, as his last act as the state's Governor, Rockefeller commuted the sentences of every current prisoner on the Arkansas' Death Row life without the possibility of parole, urging the other state governors to do the same, saying "I yearn to see other chief executives throughout the nation follow suit, so that as a people we may hasten the elimination of barbarism as a tool of American justice."
In September 1972 Rockefeller was diagnosed with rare kind of inoperable cancer, and he goes through a devastating round of chemotherapy. When he returned to the state of Arkansas, the citizens shocked at the frail and haggard appearance... of what had been a giant of a man. Winthrop Rockefeller died in Palm Springs, California.
Jeanette Rockefeller, his second wife, died on December 8, 1998 at age 79 in Palm Springs, California; where she had volunteered relentlessly for the Palm Springs AIDS Assistance Fund. A non-profit organization that distributes food vouchers for persons currently living with HIV/AIDS in the Coachella Valley region. "She helped lead women into the mainstream of political and public life," according to former President Bill Clinton. "As a tireless campaigner, Mrs. Rockefeller was a strong force against discrimination, with an uncanny ability to relate to the common man and woman," Clinton said in a statement.
Winthrop P. Rockefeller, Jr. has been the Lieutenant Governor of Arkansas since 1996, and he formally announced that he will be running for Governor of Arkansas.
President Clinton has made the battle against HIV/AIDS, a focal point of the work of the Clinton Foundation, just as Mrs. Rockefeller had dedicated her final years. President Clinton says he believes deeply that until we combat the pandemic in the developing world, where more than 90 percent of the 40 million people worldwide who have HIV/AIDS live, it will be impossible for these countries to achieve their social and economic development goals.
In the "The Biggest Secret" we learned that all 42 of the 43 U.S. Presidents have all been related to one another (at least distantly). However, Bill Clinton having been number US President number 42, did not even know who his father was, until the record showed up several decades later? David Icke is absolutely correct in his statement that all 41 Presidents of the United States have been directly related to one another. This has been confirmed by a genealogical organization known as Burke's Pearage, and Gary Boyd from the New England Historical Society, William Jefferson Clinton is the one that who somehow does not fit.
You see Bill Clinton was born to Virginia Dellcassidy and William Jefferson Blythe III. At some time in the 1940's Bill Clinton's mother had either divorced William Jefferson Blythe III or he passed on. So in 1946, when she married Roger Clinton, they changed his name to Clinton from Blythe.
EVEN MORE PUZZLING:
1. How did Jimmy Carter come to pick Bill Clinton as his presidential Arkansas state campaign manager, he was in D.C for four (4) years (when Jimmy Carter was not), then he was in England for two (2) years, and New Haven, CT for two (2) more years. This is good old boy Southern politics, when does not just walk in and start calling the shots....and live to tell the story.
2. Who funds the campaigns of some non-family connectED, recent law school graduate with little experience even in the legal field and NO experience in political office?
3. Former U.S. Presidents George H.W. Bush and William Jefferson Clinton now appear to be the best of friends, in fact, according to the Larry King Show this summer .....Bill Clinton joined George H.W Bush for some fishing up at Walker's Point in Maine.
3. What law school in America hires a student right out of law school to be a professor, with no actual experience inside the courtroom....not impossible; but from law student to law professor, is about as rare an occasion... as having a Catholic priest be elevated to a Cardinal. However, at least when Cardinal Avery Dulles made that leap, had three (3) United States Secretaries of State and a former director of the United States CIA in his family, plus his mother was a Rockefeller. Hmmmmmmmmm

If this pledge is carried out, which I have no reason to believe that it will not, it will be one of the largest individual donations in the fight against AIDS.
