Hillary Clinton Exposed, Movie She Banned From Theaters - Full
2008 Hillary Clinton Exposed Website
There is a reference to "The Path To 9/11" in the movie. In it, the director talks about how after airing and receiving 7 emmy nominations, ABC/Disney refuses to release it on DVD on the orders of the Clinton's. I checked to see if it was available yet. It is not.
Hillary: The Movie (How she banned it)August 31, 2009 6:24PM
The Supreme Court is soon to hear a case that may drastically roll back campaign finance regulation in the United States:
The case involves “Hillary: The Movie,” a mix of advocacy journalism and political commentary that is a relentlessly negative look at Mrs. Clinton’s character and career. The documentary was made by a conservative advocacy group called Citizens United, which lost a lawsuit against the Federal Election Commission seeking permission to distribute it on a video-on-demand service. The film is available on the Internet and on DVD. The issue was that the McCain-Feingold law bans corporate money being used for electioneering.The right position for the Court is that McCain-Feingold, and all other campaign finance regulation, constitutes unconstitutional limitation on free speech. This means reversing the Court’s 1974 Buckley v. Valeo decision, which held that government limits on campaign spending were unconstitutional but limits on contributions were not.
This distinction is meaningless. If it is OK for a millionaire to spend his own money promoting his own campaign, why can he not give that money to someone else, who might be a more effective advocate for that millionaire’s views, so that this other person can run for office?
More broadly, campaign finance regulation is thought control: it takes a position on whether money should influence political outcomes. Whether or not one agrees, this is only one possible view, and freedom of speech is meant to prevent government from promoting or discouraging particular points of view.
It would be a brave step for Court to reverse Buckley, but it is the right thing to do.

Conservative group to produce Hillary Clinton documentary
Despite CNN and NBC canceling planned projects on Hillary Clinton, a conservative organization announced this week that they were moving forward with a project of its own about the former First Lady and Secretary of State.
Citizens United Productions, which bills itself as the “country’s leading conservative filmmaker,” has produced a number of exposés over the last few years. The organization made waves in 2008 with Hillary: The Movie, which shed light on Clinton’s public life as she ran for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.
That exposé was also the issue in Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission (2008), a landmark Supreme Court decision that overturned the parts of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 (McCain-Feingold) and restored free speech rights that were regulated by the law.
“Unlike CNN and NBC Citizens United Productions will not be deterred in uncovering the truth behind the ongoing Clinton charade,” said David Bossie, President of Citizens United Productions, in a statement from the organization. “As we have seen in our successes with ‘Hillary The Movie’ and most recently ‘Fast Terry’, Clinton world has unlimited storylines, nefarious characters, and an overall record American’s should be concerned about.”
Citizens United had sought equal time from CNN and NBC to run its exposé on Clinton in concert with the networks’ now-terminated projects.
“Citizens United is currently in pre-production of our film that will no doubt shake the Clinton world to the core with a scheduled release date of early 2016,” added Bossie. “And unlike CNN and NBC we are not intimidated about airing what Bill and Hillary Clinton do not want the American people to see.”
The details of the project, whether it will be an update of its previous exposé or an entirely different project, were not made available. The release of the project will coincide with the 2016 presidential election. Clinton is considered to be the frontrunner for the Democratic Party’s nomination.
Citizen United Productions has previously produced exposés on various topics, including Occupy Wall Street (Occupy Unmasked) and Barack Obama (The Hope and The Change). Its most recent offering is Fast Terry, which is an exposé on Terry McAuliffe, who is the Democratic nominee for Governor of Virginia.
