WHITE HOUSE SURVEILLANCE VIDEOS NEVER TO BE SHOWN

**Exclusive**

Video showing Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton moving around the Oval Office
complex of the White House will likely never be shown to the public, the
DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

As first reported in this space in April, Independent Counsel Ken Starr
obtained video taken by White House security cameras.

Starr included a "compilation video" in his impeachment referral to Congress
last month.

"For security reasons, the committee has decided not to release it," a
well-placed congressional source revealed this week. "It will not be shown
in the hearings next month."

The video does not include audio, according to the source. And no
transcript was provided to the committee.

LUCIANNE GOLDBERG TELLS THEM TO GET TO WASHINGTON!

Halloween will be all trick and no treat for the White House if planners of
the National March For Justice have their way.

A citizens rally on Washington is now set to be held at Noon, October, 31,
1998, in Lafayette Park across from the White House.

Literary agent Lucianne Goldberg will make a rare public speaking appearance
at the rally. Other creating wind include former FBI agent Gary Aldrich,
former Travel Office head Billy Dale, Larry Klayman of Judicial Watch, Jonah
Goldberg from NATIONAL REVIEW, Dr. Paul Fick, author of THE DYSFUNCTIONAL
PRESIDENT and many others.

The rally promises to feature the ultimate line-up of Clinton scandal stars.

[Several unannounced guests could turn the event into a complete media
spectacle, it has been learned.]

Goldberg herself is sending out the call, posting a message on the Internet
earlier this week:

"I implore all of you to heed the cry of EAGLES UP! and join us. Sell
something, borrow the dough, cash a T-bill - whatever it takes and come to
Washington on October 31st to show the world that there are people who know
what this country really means."

The website FREE REPUBLIC, which is sponsoring the event, has a permit and
is renting the tent and band.

ABC NEWS POLLS TRIPP WITH BIN LADEN, HUSSEIN

ABC NEWS launched a poll on its website on Thursday that placed White House
whistle-blower Linda Tripp with terrorist Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein!

"What Do You Think: If there were an Ig-Nobel Peace Prize, who would win
it?" ABC NEWS asked.

ABC's Choices:

Slobodan Milosevic
Osama bin Laden
Saddam Hussein
Linda Tripp

As of 21:00 ET on Thursday night, Tripp was topping the terrorists with
nearly a third of the vote in the ABC poll.

Linda Tripp 32.3%
Slobodan Milosevic 26.6%
Saddam Hussein 25.4%
Osama bin Laden 15.5%

[16,953 votes]


An ABC NEWS spokesman laughed when asked if ABC NEWS really views Tripp in
the same category as international terrorists.

The nation will root for a true American hero once again when John Glenn

TRUMP BUILDING TALLEST

Demolition began Thursday on a vacant office building at First Avenue
between 47th and 48th Streets which will soon be home to the "tallest
residential building in the world," according to Donald Trump.

A $360 million slender glass building, shooting up 72 stories, is Trump's
plan, outlined in Friday's NEW YORK TIMES.

"I've always thought that New York should have the tallest building in the
world," Trump tells the paper. "It doesn't. But now, it has the tallest and
most luxurious residential building in the world."

Trump said that prices at Trump World Tower, walking distance to the United
Nations, would start at $750 a square foot.

Penthouses will be 4,500 square feet with 16-foot ceilings, with
unobstructed views of the famed ruins in Greece.

'THANK YOU NOTHINGNESS'


HOLLYWOOD -- Sunset Boulevard has still not completely recovered from
mental-rocker Alanis Morissette's 90-minute preview gig Wednesday night at
the Hollywood Palladium.

"Thank You, India... Thank you nothingness!! Thank Youuuuuuaerrrghhhh!"
Morissette blurted from the stage during a performance of her new single
THANK YOU from her upcoming album SUPPOSED FORMER INFATUATION JUNKIE.

Morissette, 24, came to town to sneak material from the year's most
anticipated album -- her follow-up to 1995's JAGGED LITTLE PILL, which sold
some 28 million copies worldwide.

"How soon will I be holy? How much does this cost, guru?" Morissette sings
in her opening number BABA, with a face that for a moment takes on features
of Chucky the Doll.

On her new album, she wrote all the lyrics, sings all vocals, including
backing parts; plays piano, flute and harmonica.

But it is the words of her songs that had some in the hall scratching head.

What in the world is the poor woman talking about?

"The problem is the words," politely notes critic Ben Wener in Friday's
ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER.

"Quite simply, there are just too many of them... In many of the cuts, [she]
has forgone choruses altogether, favoring a series of increasingly agitated
verses that push and push to the point of redundancy."

Morissette's new track: CAN'T NOT

Because I can't not win without my losing, my dear
Would it be whining if I said I needed a hug?
Would you feel slighted if I said your love's not enough?
And how dare I complain?
And how dare I complain when you want for a chance for this?
Because I can't not
Because I can't not
Because I can't not
Because I can't not
Because I can't not
Because I can't not
Because I can't not walk without my crutches

----

Huh?

With her SUPPOSED FORMER INFATUATION JUNKIE, Morissette has created the
perfect soundtrack for 1999 pop culture. Where nothing makes sense, but
everything sells and everything is Number One with a bullet and a pierced
tongue. It's fresh because it's "new." And "new" is a relative term
because every word has already been used to express every emotion. It's
just different bones, scanning different bar codes, swiping different credit
cards down at TOWER RECORDS on The Strip these days.

"Thank You, India... Thank you nothingness!"

Heavy rotation, on every station, in every nation.

"Thank You, India... Thank you nothingness!" Morissette sings as the crowd
cheers.

['Chucky The Doll is going to beat ANTZ at the boxoffice' I scratch in my
notebook.]

"Thank You, India... Thank you nothingness!"

As I walk home from the Palladium up Vine Street, passing Capitol Records, I
immediately start feeling better. Knowing it hasn't always been this
ridiculous. Missing Frank.
