News that international celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain had committed suicide at age 61 on June 8, 2018, rocked the world. Many accepted the official story that he had hanged himself in a French hotel, while others wondered immediately if Bourdain had been murdered for crossing the Clintons.
The globetrotting host of the popular foodie show “Parts Unknown” was filming south of Strasbourg, France when his body was discovered in a hotel room in the town of Kaysersberg-Vignoble. CNN, who hosts the program, issued this statement about the late Bourdain:
“His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time.”
Bourdain had revealed his candid opinion about both former president Bill and former secretary of state and failed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary near the end of a lengthy interview with Maria Bustillos, writing for Popula on July 15, 2018.
Regarding Bill Clinton, Bourdain had this comment:
“Bill Clinton, look, the bimbo eruptions—it was fucking monstrous. That would not have flown today. A piece of shit. Entitled, rapey, gropey, grabby, disgusting, and the way that he — and she — destroyed these women and the way that everyone went along, and, and are blind to this!”
Then the chef observed that the Clintons have been immune to the many high-level political and religious sexual predation scandals that have been making the media rounds. He criticized this journalistic bias:
“How you can on the one hand howl at the moon about all these other predators and not at least look back?”
Then, Bourdain, who met Bill Clinton, termed him “a very charming man” who is “fucking magnetic.”
He continued his personality assessment with Hillary:
“As is she. When you’re in the room, you think wow, she’s really warm and nice and funny.”
So what’s the downside? According to Boudain:
“But the way they efficiently dismantled, destroyed, and shamelessly discredited these women for speaking their truth is unforgivable.”
Once again, the glib food show host offered his honest opinion about the Monica Lewinsky White House scandal that raised questions of impeachment for Bill Clinton during his presidential term. As you may recall, the issue was not that Mr. Bill had oral sex with Ms. Lewinsky, but that the President lied in his congressional testimony when he said famously, “I did not have sex with that woman.” We now know that he at least got a blow job in the Oval Office.
Hardly anyone seems to remember that sordid little part of U.S. history. Bourdain was an exception:
“I would never under any circumstances vote for Bill Clinton today. But I think impeaching the guy over Lewinsky was ridiculous.”
To make his position perfectly clear, he wound up his remarks by repeating:
“It was the shaming, discrediting, undermining the women that made both of them unsuitable for any future endeavors. I don’t think they should’ve pulled him from office.”
Did this interview give the Clintons enough motive to lead to the death of Anthony Bourdain – by arranging for his murder?
A September 2018 New Media Central article titled “CNN Host Who Was Bullied On Twitter By Clinton Staffer Hangs Self” published tweets from October 2017, when Bourdain “made statements regarding Harvey Weinstein, suggesting Hillary Clinton had to know of his history of being a sexual predator. Bourdain’s girlfriend, actress Asia Argento, accused Weinstein of raping her.”
Hillary spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted back his disapproval of Ms. Argento’s claim on October 11, 2017:
“Go eat a scorpion or something.”
That same day, Bourdain retorted by tweeting:
“Know what Hillary Clinton is NOT? She’s not stupid. Or unsophisticated about the world. The Weinstein stories had been out there for years.”
Then, on May 2, 2018, Bourdain dropped a bombshell tweet on Hillary Rodham Clinton (HRC) in a reply to another post:
“…and I am in no way an HRC fan. I’ve been on the receiving end of her operatives’ wrath. And it ain’t fun.”
Was Anthony Bourdain on the receiving end of the powerful couple’s wrath and make the top slot on the “Clinton Kill List?”
Former porn star Jenna Jameson minced no words when she tweeted her opinion on July 16, 2018:
“Cross the Clintons…get suicided.”
For the record, post-mortem toxicology reports showed that Bourdain was drug-free and had only a trace amount of alcohol in his blood. A former drug user, he said he hadn’t used heroin in decades.
Was Bourdain the victim of his own “addictive personality” as some speculate – or was he the victim of bad-mouthing the Clintons in an open public forum?
We may never know for sure. We can only bid a fond farewell to the man who led many viewers to “Parts Unknown” and now, himself, has journeyed there without us.
