Publisher's Summary

"Just as the necessary qualification for a good liar is a good memory, so the essential equipment of a would-be lie detector is a good timeline, and a decent archive."

In No One Left to Lie To, a New York Times best-seller, 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.

A scathing attack from the left.

I was shocked by this book and I went into it with a positive view of both Clintons. I have listened to the Trial of Henry Kissinger which is also excellent and will read the missionary position.

The lies that have continued...

I do wish that Christopher Hitchens was alive today to see the drama and twist of the 2016 Presidential election. The issues, tactics, and story of the Clintons in 2016 is still very much the same (from taking soft money, taking foreign money, lies or amnesia of details from the past, as well as the cozy relationship with the media) today.
This book is well written and well read, from a well educated and honest journalist who is known for his sharp critiques. Worth the read and listen!!!

Rare Non-Partisan Factual Takedown

This book is just as much about Hillary as it is about Bill. Even if his name is mentioned a lot more, it has been rare in US history that a POTUS and First Lady are so strongly linked. Between the rapes, racism, war crimes, and overall scumbaggery Hitchens lays down a well researched and fact-based outlining of why Clinton is a complete scumbag. A must read for any Clinton believer.

A concise hit piece on America's worst president

A very informative book and an eye opener for contemporary Americans. However not Hitchens' best work.

Detail-rich, and wide-ranging critique. Compelling

As someone who was a teen through much of the period of Bill Clinton's presidency, it is fascinating to revisit Hitchens' 'No One Left to Lie to' as it feels like almost an alternate history of events relative to my media and time-softened memory of the era. At the time I was aware of some of the major transgressions he was accused of and understood, on an abstract level perhaps, that he might not be the charming, affable, and decent sort that he otherwise presented himself as.

Hitchens clearly had a much closer and a much deeper view of the president and his wife and his writing throughout this book is filled with abject contempt for Bill Clinton as an absolute monster of a human, with Hillary being little (if any) better. He makes a detailed and compelling case (if one that doesn't turn to supporting fact very much - perhaps the written version is filled with footnotes?) that both of them were serious criminals, many times over, and in many different areas. I imagine it would be very hard to listen to the entirety of this book and walk away believing that either a suitable individual to be president, (or in Hilary's case the nominee for president).

A classic of our times

An incredible book about the permanent loss of ethical government in our country. Hitchens was a superhuman writer and thinker.

Classic Hitchens

A great look back at WJC and those scandalous years. If you were alive then to remember that time, his take on that era is fantastic...as are all things Hitchens.

why Democrats are actually conservative

Bill Clinton's legacy breaks down into three main categories: lies, sexual assaults, and conservatism. Conservatism is an easy target, Bill Clinton was a conservative politician and his winning the presidency helped taint the rest of the party. The other two however are a bit trickier being muddled in deception by definition. Hitchens howeverseems fully capable of cutting through the BS and displaying the atrocities for what they are. A thorough and deserved destruction of the character of the man we once though so great

Nothing but the truth

Background, I'm a libertarian with no dog in the political fight. Hitchens is a contrarian, he is a gifted writer who's fundamental beliefs are different than my own. He nailed it with this book. He details the corruption of the "clintonoids". I was amazed at how much the media and fellow democrats enable(d) these creeps. NBC withheld the rape story until after the election, and are obviously in the tank for Hillary now. They witheld the Donald audio so they could have an October surprise. They were complicit in minimizing Bernie! history repeating itself. We deserve a better choice. but i digress. . A few things that I was not fully aware of, Bill Clinton is most likely a rapist. Hitchens does insinuate that Bill's victims might have their day... which the buffoon Donald helped make happen the other night. He details how Clinton inc.. goes after and threatens their opponents and fellow democrats who don't fall in line. likewise their ability to prostitute themselves for money, and for a mere 25k to the Pakistanis. It's truly depressing that we are likely gojng to have 4 years of them again in the white house. At this moment the wh. staff are putting new locks on the Lincoln bedroom. The book is a great listen, it's not from a political hack like most "journalism " on the right and left today. I hate politics with a passion, i was afraid I'd be bummed out by hearing this, but i found myself enjoying this disturbing summation. Just get it, you'll enjoy
