This page contains reversals of the President and others evolved in the Lewinsky Sex Scandal. The latest reversals are being added to the end of this page. Please scroll down.
Here are the first reversals on the controversial sex allegations that have only just surfaced about President Bill Clinton. In this first example he was asked directly if he has had sexual relations with this woman. Three reversals occur in this section. They are… “Yes, and I’m so within / We will bring her faults / And yes, Mick, I lost it.“
The following reversals were found on Linda Tripp after her long awaited testimony in the Monica Lewinski case – 7/30/98. The first reversal says, “The law screwed up.” The second reversal says, “Damn, no leaks.” Then the entire section is played in reverse followed by one other reversal that says, “Hear the life with them.” Note the forward section where this occurs.
Here, at the end of the interview, Clinton attempts to motivate himself to continue on. In reverse he determines to not answer allegations and attempts to concentrate on better times. Backwards he says: “The past, I’ll answer not. We all remember running.“
In this reversal, Clinton says: “Hell with the earth. See desert answers.” This is a difficult reversal to interpret. It could be a metaphoric statement. Desert is a metaphor for the unconscious mind. Earth is to be stable and grounded in the conscious world. Is reality on the earth too tough and he is therefore withdrawing inside as the first reversal seems to suggest. Or, an many people have suggested. Is he going to divert attention away from the allegations by concentrating on the currect situation in Iraq (the desert) or even create a controversy?
Here Clinton says its almost impossible to prove your innocence. The reversal reveals deep sexual attitudes that are anything but innocent, especially in light of the current allegations made by Paula Jones where she says that Clinton requested oral sex. It says: “Make her swallow. You trash. An easy role/roll.“
Above reversals taken from the PBS interview of President Bill Clinton by Jim Leher of the Leher News Hour, January 21, 1998.
The following reversal was found in a Press Conference at the White House January 22, 1998 as he continues to deny the allegations. Backwards he says: “We try to frost that battle. Battle will lose this guard but I’m sad.” In other words, he and his staff have to cool the accusations.
Here is Janet Reno being asked to comment on the allegations. She side steps the question both forwards and backwards. In reverse she says: “They market now. We need the shiek.” Yasser Arafat was in Washington DC that day for extensive talks with the White House. Reno seems to be saying – there’s other more important things going on.
Here are two reversals found on Clinton during a press conference at the White House with Yasser Arrafat 1/22/98. They seem to show a different side of him during this crisis. Forwards he expresses pleasure about Castro inviting the Pope to Cuba. Backwards he says, “God bless,” and “Hell, we fund the silk skin.” I have no idea what he means by the last reversal.
Here is Paula Jones’ attorney, Mr. Campbell, commenting on the Intern’s decision to take the fifth ammendment. The reversal is obscure saying, “She’s abandoned an Earl with Satin. See the gamble.” Earl is a common reverse speech metaphor meaning a wealthy nobel man.
Here is Paula Jones’ attorney again saying that there is no involvement with Mr. Starr’s office. This reversal, combined with that above suggests that this legal team is not exactly innocent in the entire matter: “I used them to shake within. The fun’s worth it.“
Here is White House Press Secretary, Mike McCurry, giving a press conference 1/12/98. This reversal is seemingly un-related to the forward dialogue and uses metaphors. It says: “You save your wine. Lets now fake the wolf. It helps you.“
Wine is a metaphor for spiritual nourishment. Wolf is motivation, strength and protection. He seems to be bracing himself for what it to come, conserving his internal strength and trying to psyche himself up when there is not much left to psyche up. The reversal may also predict a strategy the white house is planning to deal with this- that is to appear to be a lot stronger and more confident than they actually are.
Here is another “wolf” reversal from the White House. It occurs on Communications Director, Anne Lewis. This also shows a weakened wolf that is remaining weak. Reasons for this could be many but based on my experience with Reverse Speech, the most plausible reason would be incongruity, or believeing a lie. There can be no true strength when one is operating in a dishonest or “blind” position. The reversal says: “Keeps the wolf hungry.“
Extract from the Reverse Speech Dictionary:
WOLF (Structural) prime central metaphor; see Shewolf, Werewolf; the part of personality that is the hunter & protector of the Psyche; prime motivator behind behavior; the state of the Wolf metaphor directly influences success and control of life; ones ability to be self motivated and firm. Trance image; a waist high wolf, usually grey. Well built and well groomed with sharp piercing eyes
The following reversals were found on the press conference Clinton conducted Monday, January 26 1998. There were very few reversals which is unusal in itself. Maybe the last reversal tells us why.
Here is Hillary Clinton at the begining of the press conference held January 26 1998. It’s not a good start. When she says welcome to the White House, backwards she says, “Sly hell with it.” Then she says backwards, “We, the law.” What happened to We, the people?
Here are speech reversals found on Hillary Clinton being interviewed on the Today show January 27 1998
This reversal was found on Clinton during his press conference with Tony Blair, 2/6/98. He is saying forwards that he cannot comment on the Paula Jones hearings. In reverse he appears to say, “Had sex with an Oregon Madam.” Originally I thought this reversal said “Norgon Madam” and I wondered who or what Norgon was. However, the overall consensus of visitors to my site is that it says “Oregon Madam,” and it has been pointed out that Monica Lewinski went to college in Portland Oregon.
Here is a small section from a broadcast made on radio KYKY FM 98.1 in St Louis where they were playing Clinton reversals that they found themselves. This is one of many radio spontaneous radio broadcasts that have been prompted by my work.
REVERSALS WITH KATHLEEN WILLEY
Sixty Minutes Interview 3/15/98
From the reversals below, Kathleen Willey appears to be relaying factual events. I suspect Clinton seduced her, and I also suspect Willey enjoyed the seduction more than she is willing to admit. It was a power trip, to paraphrase her reversals. I also suspect that she is not telling the entire story possibly because she is afraid for her welfare. There appears to be some disassociation from the events, evidenced by the fact that she frequently refers to herself in the third person, “you.”
On a final note, I was surprised to hear the phrase, “her sore lips are hammering it.” This is almost identical to a reversal on Hillary Clinton elsewhere on this page that says, “Evil lips are hammering it.” I have never heard the word “hammering” in reverse in my entire 15 year career with Reverse Speech until now. I suggest that that you listen to both sections on this page and note that there are totally different words forwards, yet almost identical words backwards. It is common in reverse to heard different reversals on the same words forwards and vice verse, and that is because reversals are generally formed by the sounds of speech and not the actual words themselves So, what does “hammering it” mean, and why now is it found on the Clinton sex scandals?

Monica Lewinsky Issue Testimony
Here is Bill Clinton making a statement about his impending testimony towards the Grand Jury in the Monica Lewinsky case. This was done the day she handed over the dress. There are two reversals. The first one says, “So sad. It scares the leaders.” (Fallout and international consequences of this.) The second one is, “They market her fun.” Plus two other reversals that aren’t as clear – “We’ll beat the crime – Serve the lie.” and, “I witnessed a scam.“
Here is the first reversal found on Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendal, immediately after his testimony to the special counsel. The reversal says, “Enormous sex.“, and it occurs as soon soon as Kendal says, The president’s testimony.” – It is acually part of an entire phrase, “Enormous sex. They deserve with it.” The first reversal is played three times, the entire phrase is played twice, and then played forwards and backwards.
Here is an amusing reversal found on James Carville immediately after Clinton’s confession. Forwards he talks about the Presidents desire to sort things out with his wife but backward he says, “A naughty girl he wants.”

Preliminary Reversals on Clinton’s Confession
Janet Reno on Day of Confession
Does Clinton have other things on his mind? (his own sexual demise, and Monica Lewinski???) Here are the first two reversals found on his speech in Ireland. They say, “They’ve seen them. I’ll fuck my balls.“, and “They’re all boring me, Monica.“
