That is, she accused those who were after Bill Clinton because of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, and when Bill finally admitted his wrong-doing it made Hillary's accusation seem phoney.
However, that did not and does not mean that the right-wing conspiracy does not exist. In fact, it does exist, and it is why we are in this state of deep partisan political conflict, economic crises, global crises, wars, and tribulation.
As an article titled ALEC and The Federalist Society reveals, it began in the 1950s with the John Birch Society and McCarthyism. It was revived and expanded by Reaganism in the 1980s, and it was firmly entrenched during the Bush presidency, to the extent that now the wealthiest few rule completely, regardless of who is in the White House.
They virtually control all three branches of the U.S. Government, but most importantly they control most state governments one way or another. And the right-wing conspiracy is indeed vast. In includes the "Religious Right," The Federalist Society, The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), The Heritage Society, The Cato Institute, Fox News, Clear Channel, the American Action Network (ANN), and the list of well organized right-wing PACs and think tanks is very long.
There are countless phoney conspiracy theories being floated around on the Internet, but this one is all too real. And it will be stopped only when it is exposed and brought into the light of scrutiny, because until Bill Moyers broke the story in 2012 and updated it recently, it has been very successful at keeping its activity unknown to the public.
