u/HerbertMcSherbert · 23 pointsr/history

One of the great investigative journalists, writers and speakers of the 20th and 21st centuries. I recommend having a ready of his books of essays, e.g. Arguably.

He spent a massive amount of time actually on the ground in places like Kurdistan, Iraq, Cuba (immediately post-revolution, leading in great part - along with the writing of Orwell and various dissidents - to his disenchantment with communism), and so many other places. He was also tremendously well-read and well-informed, as you'll see when reading his essays.

He was a leftist who despised the Clintons for their conduct (his book: No One Left to Lie To) but unfortunately died before this last election - his writing on Trump would've been gold, as would his struggle over the lesser of two evils. He was not afraid to break with the left on different issues, e.g. Iraq, because he'd spent so much time on the ground in Iraq and Kurdistan and had done so much research into things there, and he was greatly disappointed in the post-war rebuilding efforts that followed the removal of Saddam Hussein, but he was in Iraq at different times to see and celebrate progress where it happened (e.g. elections).

He read every word George Orwell wrote (that's available, even later-found letters and diaries). He was basically against dictators and despots everywhere.

In later times he was famous for speaking out against religion, especially where it was also despotic. This is what most people on the internet seem to know him for (hence the often vociferous attacks against him), but this was a small part of his career over his lifetime.

Really, you do yourself a great service by reading his books of essays, very few of which are about religion but most of which are very, very interesting. My father is a conservative Christian, yet he greatly enjoys reading Hitchens' essays!

From the UK deputy PM at the time of Hitchens' death:

>One unexpected tribute came from deputy prime minister Nick Clegg, who worked as an intern for Hitchens years ago. Hitchens was, he said, "everything a great essayist should be: infuriating, brilliant, highly provocative and yet intensely serious".

>"My job was to fact check his articles. Since he had a photographic memory and an encyclopaedic mind it was the easiest job I've ever done," said Clegg. "He will be massively missed by everyone who values strong opinions and great writing".

You should read up on how Hillary harrassed the alleged victims of Bill's abuse.

> She further alleges that Hillary Clinton, shortly after the alleged rape, verbally intimidated her, implying that Broaddrick better keep her mouth shut -- or else. At a political event two weeks later, Broaddrick claims that Hillary approached her: "She came over to me, took ahold of my hand and said, 'I've heard so much about you and I've been dying to meet you. ... I just want you to know how much that Bill and I appreciate what you do for him.' ...

Just imagine if somebody out there accused Trump of doing such a thing. There would be non-stop MSM coverage.

Here is a great book by Christopher Hitchens that compiles all of the garbage of Clintons called, No One Left To Life To: The Triangulations of William Jefferson Clinton-

The Clintons are genuinely terrible people.

u/antihostile · 19 pointsr/worldpolitics

If you read Hitchens' No One Left To Lie To, it's clear that Bill Clinton is a total scum bag.

u/CSKemal · 15 pointsr/SandersForPresident

He had an entire book

No One Left to Lie To: The Triangulations of William Jefferson Clinton

u/Parmeniscus · 15 pointsr/politics

Also wrote No One Left To Lie To: The Values of the Worst Family about the Clintons. Brilliant short book, information in that book alone would be enough to keep the crooks from returning to power.

u/Rshackleford22 · 9 pointsr/politics
u/innociv · 5 pointsr/SandersForPresident

Welp. I was pretty against him for the longest time. I never liked the whole "good politician = good liar" thing. I never understood how democrats would blindly defend Bill Clinton like they do. He was just Republican-lite. The only thing worse than another Clinton to me is another Bush. Good book, by the way.

u/AceFlashheart · 5 pointsr/samharris

>It would be a damn shame (not really) were this Epstein saga to expose people like Clinton, Trump, Pinker and Krauss.

That can of worms goes deeper than you can even imagine. Epstein was so closely tied to the Democratic political machine that Florida state prosecutors wouldn't press charges on him when he was first arrested in 2006.

People are salivating at the prospect of this being tied to Trump, but he may actually come out of this looking better than people think.

I'd actually be more scared for Stephen Pinker. That Clinton was involved with Epstein is no surprise to anyone who knew anything about him, but what the hell was Pinker doing associating with that creep?

Of course, all this assumes that he won't just escape prosecution like he did the last three times he's been accused of exactly the same child molestation charge.

u/VaticanCattleRustler · 4 pointsr/politics

I think the best book was written by someone on the left. Christopher Hitchens was actually a communist in the 60's, but took on a more socialist tint in his later years. Hitchens on Charlie Rose 4/28/99

His book No One Left to Lie To: The Triangulations of William Jefferson Clinton is a hair raising book, and I'd highly recommend it.

Edit: Corrected the link to the part with Blumenthal

u/melroseartist · 4 pointsr/SandersForPresident

I just can't work for the Clintons and this is one reason why...reading this book (link below) and I too agree the DNC needs to wake up to their corruption. and if Hillary gets in we will get EIGHT YEARS OF HER! I am sure no one will challenge her. and I am 65... I can't bear for this to be my final years. all of it is hard medicine. I will say I still go back and forth but reading this book and listening to clips online of Hitch talking about the Clintons ... I go back and forth about how I could ever vote to put this corrupt couple back in power. Could it be possible they could do more harm than an idiot (Trump)? with their ties to corrupt foreign governments through the Clinton Foundation?

u/Sciarrad · 3 pointsr/The_Donald

If you want some insight into how truly corrupt the Clintons are, pick up No One Left to Lie to by Christopher Hitchens - and thats just the corruption that occurred in the 90s.

u/base698 · 3 pointsr/changemyview

The whole clinton strategy has been say one thing, and do everything the Republicans want:

Voting for her is basically the same as an establishment GOP candidate like Cruz.

u/localbizdude · 3 pointsr/The_Donald

I would love to have him around this election cycle. He would most likely be skewering Obama, and especially Hillary. He hates the Clintons, and was one of the first journalists to dig deep into all of their scandals.

u/getoutofmyyard · 2 pointsr/PoliticalDiscussion

You think that Hillary supporters are leftists? Actually, let's be more specific. You think PUMA folks are leftist? There's a huge difference between being a nominal Democrat and actually falling on the left.


u/Nonsanguinity · 2 pointsr/politics


You understand we're talking about Hillary Clinton, right? How does a book by a dead atheist about Bill Clinton, essentially lamenting his triangulation strategy, have anything at all to do with your point?

>LOL The point that other politicians are also dishonest doesn't somehow negate the fact that she is devoid of honesty and integrity.

But that's not my point.

One of two things must be true: either (A) Clinton is especially unqualified as a politician because she is fundamentally dishonest/lacks integrity, or (B) Clinton is as honest as any other politician. If B is true, then either (1) all politicians are unfit for office (i.e., are so dishonest they are unfit), or (2) all politicians have a certain level of dishonesty that society has deemed acceptable.

You are arguing A (or possible B(1), it's unclear since you've provided no real evidence for either claim), and I am arguing that B(2) is true.

Now, you can argue, (and I'd agree) that society as a whole should be reformed such that honesty in rewarded, but your initial assertion that Trump, who has a complete and total disregard for truth at all, is the same as Clinton severely undercuts your claim, as it suggests that any dishonesty is the same as extreme dishonesty, and failing to appreciate large differences is a huge bar to incremental improvement.

u/hash12341234 · 2 pointsr/politics

He wrote an entire book on his dislike of the Clintons, yes plural, find it here:

  • this book does detail the rape of two anonymous women. its truly shitty how the clintons treated his victims. but what can we expect from the people who said blow jobs werent sex; and are unclear on the meaning of 'is'. Forcing a woman to bring in a cum stained dress befoe admitting something should be all you need to know.

  • Since ive bothered to say so much -- let me close with: Hillary Clinton was given debate questions. Thats a 'small' matter to the current Democrats.
u/Mikesapien · 2 pointsr/politics

I recommend everyone read No One Left to Lie To by Christopher Hitchens. The Clintons are a real piece of work.

u/WhiskeyDancer · 2 pointsr/HillaryForPrison

Christopher Hitchen's No One Left to Lie to: The Triangulations of William Jefferson Clinton is a good short read on the young Arkansas governor's rise to power.

u/MonkeyManDan · 2 pointsr/politics

And finish it up with this oldie but goldie.

u/fiendzone · 2 pointsr/HillaryForPrison

He also wrote a pretty good book called "No One Left to Lie To: The Triangulations of William Jefferson Clinton" that calls the Clintons out on their flip-flopping and willingness to throw their loyal underlings under the bus.

u/BernieOrTrump2016 · 2 pointsr/SandersForPresident

Watching this as I type this. Though they had me at Christopher Hitchens. Have you read No one left to lie to?

u/HPVLovecraft · 2 pointsr/politics

If they don't like that one maybe they can read No One Left to Lie To: The Triangulations of William Jefferson Clinton by Christopher Hitchens.


I found that one pretty interesting.

u/NeverHillary_2016_ · 2 pointsr/SandersForPresident

Not being patronizing by saying you might not know Hillary well but here are some resources you might enjoy if you haven't seen/read them. After taking them in tell me if you still think Trump is more scary than the Clintons:

  1. Clinton Cash
  2. No One Left To Lie To

    There are many more but the Clintons and Hillary must be stopped. They turned politics into pay-to-play cesspool and it isn't acceptable. Also I think the TPP ends the sovereignty of all member countries and will never vote for someone who supports it.

    I love Jill Stein and I wish I would have been sending her money instead of Bernie.
u/pslickhead · 1 pointr/atheism

He has more than a you tube video about the Clintons. He wrote a book. And more than a grudge. Grudge sounds petty. Hitchens was seldom petty. See "No One Left to Lie to"

From Amazon:

In NO ONE LEFT TO LIE TO, a New York Times bestseller, Christopher Hitchens casts an unflinching eye on the Clinton political machine and offers a searing indictment of a president who sought to hold power at any cost.

With blistering wit and meticulous documentation, Hitchens masterfully deconstructs Clinton's abject propensity for pandering to the Left while delivering to the Right, and he argues that the president's personal transgressions were ultimately inseparable from his political corruption.

Hitchens questions the president's refusals to deny accusations of rape by reputable women and lambasts, among numerous impostures, his insistence on playing the race card, the shortsightedness of his welfare bill, his ludicrous war on drugs, and his abandonment of homosexuals in the form of the Defense of Marriage Act.

Opportunistic statecraft, crony capitalism, "divide and rule" identity politics, and populist manipulations-these are perhaps Clinton's greatest and most enduring legacies.

u/hushkitties · 1 pointr/politics
u/jjhardwork · 1 pointr/SandersForPresident

Unfortunately her trustworthiness is so low that no one believes her. As Christopher Hitchens pointed out on his book on Bill Clinton: There is No one left to lie to. The whole world knows a penny is worth more than a promise from a Clinton.

u/Batou_S9 · 0 pointsr/politics

It's pretty well known that Clinton raped Juanita Broaddrick in 1978. Christopher Hitchens was one of the few pundits at the time who was holding his feet to the fire.

Here's some suggested reading for you:
No One Left to Lie To: The Triangulations of William Jefferson Clinton

u/PRINCEPS_DEI · 0 pointsr/politics

I'll just leave this here...

u/thelazyreader2015 · -1 pointsr/politics

> What part do you not believe?

Your accusation. You have no proof to back it up beyond vague associations.

>No it's not. It's not believing someone on his word, when he spent the last 10 years undermining his own credibility.

Is Hillary supposed to be a saint that going after her for her long career full of controversies makes you lack credibility? I'd like to recommend you a certain book: No One Left to Lie To: The Triangulations of William Jefferson Clinton. It was written by the great Christopher Hitchens, who had quite a lot to say about the Clintons over the decades. Did he undermine his own credibility too?

It's weird how Hillary has become even more powerful and influential among Dems now than when she was in office. The way they respond to any uncomfortable facts or questions about her you'd think she was the patron goddess of the DNC.

>Soiomon is vice-Director, he has a lot of influence on what gets published, if the story is so well-sourced and believable, why don't you do us a favor and show us the follow up from other publications with high editorial standard?

The Uranium One bust was carried and analyzed by every major media outlet except maybe the Clinton News Network. Where have you been the last couple of weeks?

u/NBPatton · -4 pointsr/nevertellmetheodds

He ain't lyin... A highly recommended read;

No One Left to Lie To: The Triangulations of William Jefferson Clinton is a 1999 book about Bill Clinton by author and journalist Christopher Hitchens.

u/TheHersir · -4 pointsr/politics

Lol there's entire books about how corrupt the Clintons are.

Ever heard of Christopher Hitchens?

The evidence of the tech industry being hostile towards conservatives is well documented. You would have to be willfully ignorant to not acknowledge that.

u/PM_ME_UR_BLOCKCHAIN · -5 pointsr/politics

>There is literally no evidence that Clinton lacked honesty or integrity to any degree more than any other modern politician.

LOL The point that other politicians are also dishonest doesn't somehow negate the fact that she is devoid of honesty and integrity. Wow. If the best you have is "she's just as bad as everyone else" then you're part of the problem for perpetuating acceptance of lies and corruption. Beyond that, you have to be consciously dismissive of all of the blatant lies that Clinton has told throughout her political career to be able to pretend she isn't just another dishonest worm.

u/Not_Without_My_Balls · -7 pointsr/politics
u/85camels · -9 pointsr/EnoughHillHate

Off the top of my head:

--Lied about being under sniper fire.

--Was removed from her staffer job by a fellow Dem for being a dishonest person.

--Repeatedly lied about her email issue.

--Lied about Bill's affairs and lied about the women he was involved with.
--Lied about having a strong record regarding gay marriage.
--Lied about record regarding NAFTA.

[Here's some of examples from super biased anti-Clinton Politifact.](

The only way you can claim that Clinton isn't an abject liar is if you're politically biased or deeply ignorant. It's an undeniable fact that Clinton is indifferent to the truth. Your response is equivalent to saying to someone that they're wrong about climate change being real because they didn't post proof. Anyone who is cognizant and has their head screwed on is already aware.

I recommend you read Hitchen's book on the Clintons. It's called No One Left To Lie To.

I put you in the same category as people who deny climate change. You're only able to do so out of ignorance and political agenda. Hillary Clinton is demonstrably indifferent to the truth and devoid of integrity. And if/when she loses to a clown like Trump it will be largely because of the fact that she is a habitual liar. And people like you will be partly to blame for excusing her lies.
