long-term affair with Bill. Bill and Hill immediately denied the affair had
taken place, this on live TV. Hillary was nominated for an Oscar. (No, but she
should have been.)

was set up.
Now, you can find
out how Bill and Hillary were elected and realize how much money and work went
into hiding the outcome of the election in 1992 by both the GOP and Democrat
The Background –
An early innovation:
What today you
know as QVC and Home Shopping Channel, or “So You Think You
Can Dance”, technology, was used after 1992 so people could interact
with what they saw on TV. This produces
sales of lots of stuff and produces billions for them.
“So You Think
You Can Dance” and a small
number of other shows used the same technologies and also prospered with many
times the number of viewers as traditional TV shows. 94 million phone votes, still a record, were
cast by text votes, phone votes, and online votes in a three-hour period.
The price of TV
advertising hinges on how many viewers the show has.
In early 1992, a
very different show was offered by fax to potential participants. The fax arrived in the campaign offices of
each of the 65 presidential candidates then running for president. Free satellite time was offered if they
participated by recording an unedited speech to a live audience, no editing
allowed, nor would PhoneVoter TV Network (PVN).
The speeches were sent to 1,200 news directors across America and 20
million Americans via satellite TV. Those
watching, could also participate, calling in their agree/disagree reaction
tallied on screen.
This made great TV
news. News shows are always looking to
drive up their own ratings, of course. And
those hearing the candidate had the chance to respond to what the presidential
candidate said. Live. How many of us would love to have that chance?
The faxes were
received, but only four candidates responded, this by phone. This was free
satellite time, free advertising. But
one of the candidates pumped their consultant, the founder of PhoneVoter, Brock
d’Avignon, for information on how this all worked. That candidate was Bill, “I feel Your
Pain” Clinton, using a pseudonym, Marcus.
After the stunning
November Election Night, political savants scratched their heads about how
Clinton beat the most popular sitting president in history; President George H.
W. Bush’s popularity was at an all-time high for any president, 89% just months
before. Therefore, grasping at straws, they opined, “Perot Phenomenon”.
Naturally, no one
in power wanted the apple cart upset, but it had been. The cover-up began. Real, and feverish, cooperation between
Republicans and Democrats began.
On January 21,
1992, PhoneVoter TV Network had been launched by the young tech-oriented TV
producer named Brock d’Avignon, who added satellite TV, telepolls with tallies,
and live phone-in tallies. Thus,
American history was changed. And this
next time, 2024, no cover-up.
