The Tale of Hillary Clinton & the Clinton Foundation Corruption Continues … Donors Given Special Access to State Department
AMERICA, WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED TO SEE TO SHOW YOU THAT HILLARY CLINTON IS AS CORRUPT AS IT GETS?
The AP is reporting, not Fox News, the AP, that more than one half, at least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Hillary Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs. This is called influence peddling folks, or as many like to now refer to it as “pay for play.” What is this, the mob and a protection racket? as Powerline opines, “So it wasn’t absolutely impossible to get a meeting with the Secretary of State if you didn’t contribute to her slush fund, but it was extremely unlikely.”
How could anyone in good conscious actually vote for this corrupt woman who sold the State Department out to the highest bidder. What do you think that she will do as president?
More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money – either personally or through companies or groups – to the Clinton Foundation. It’s an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president.
At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars released so far to The Associated Press. Combined, the 85 donors contributed as much as $156 million. At least 40 donated more than $100,000 each, and 20 gave more than $1 million.
Donors who were granted time with Clinton included an internationally known economist who asked for her help as the Bangladesh government pressured him to resign from a nonprofit bank he ran; a Wall Street executive who sought Clinton’s help with a visa problem; and Estee Lauder executives who were listed as meeting with Clinton while her department worked with the firm’s corporate charity to counter gender-based violence in South Africa.
The AP’s findings represent the first systematic effort to calculate the scope of the intersecting interests of Clinton Foundation donors and people who met personally with Clinton or spoke to her by phone about their needs.
The 154 did not include U.S. federal employees or foreign government representatives. Clinton met with representatives of at least 16 foreign governments that donated as much as $170 million to the Clinton charity, but they were not included in AP’s calculations because such meetings would presumably have been part of her diplomatic duties.
What more do the American people need to see before they can put one and one together and get exactly what Bill and Hillary Clinton were doing? You know its bad when even the WAPO raises an eyebrow at the actions of Hillary Clinton. Sorry America, Hillary Clinton has run out of chances to say she didn’t know, she does not recollect and it was just bad judgement, and not a crime. If it was 5 to 10 out of 154 individuals, that might have been defensible. But when more than 55% of individuals overlap between State and the Clinton Foundation donors … sorry, you are guilty as hell. That goes beyond you should have known better and is an act with intent.
But, COME ON, MAN. It is literally impossible to look at those two paragraphs and not raise your eyebrows. Half of all of the nongovernmental people Clinton either met with or spoke to on the phone during her four years at the State Department were donors to the Clinton Foundation! HALF!
And those 85 people donated $156 million, which, according to my calculator, breaks down to an average contribution just north of $1.8 million. (Yes, I know that not everyone gave the same amount.)
It just plain looks bad. Really bad.
No one is alleging that the Clinton Foundation didn’t (and doesn’t) do enormous amounts of good around the world. It does. (That’s for you, my dearest Twitter haters.) But what the Clinton Foundation does with the money it receives isn’t the point here. At issue is whether there was a too-fuzzy line between Clinton’s work at the State Department and the contributions being made to the foundation. And while nothing in the AP story is proof of any wrongdoing, it is proof of bad judgment.
Donald Trump Heads to Louisiana Tomorrow While Barack Obama Golfs & Vacations and Hillary Clinton Rests
HOW SICK IS THIS THAT WE HAVE A TRAGEDY LIKE THE FLOODS IN LOUISIANA AND OBAMA GOLFS ON VACATION AS AMERICANS SUFFER …
Louisiana is suffering through the worst disaster since Hurricane Sandy as more than 20,000 people were displaced in the flooding, 13 people have died and many more are missing. Don’t worry, President Barack Obama does not seem to be phased by the terrible news as he is on his vacation in Martha’s Vineyard yucking it up with lifestyles of the rich and famous.
However, Fox News is reporting that Vice Presidential candidate Governor Mike Pence will be traveling with Donald Trump to Baton Rouge.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and running mate Mike Pence will visit flood-damaged areas of Baton Rouge, La. Friday.
Record flooding across Louisiana has killed at least 13 people. Over 85,000 people have registered for federal disaster assistance, more than 30,000 have been rescued, and an estimated 40,000 homes have been damaged.
Trump addressed the flooding at a rally in Charlotte, N.C. Thursday night, calling Louisiana “a state that is very, very special to me.”
“Though words cannot express the sadness one feels at times like this,” Trump said, “I hope everyone in Louisiana knows that our country is praying for them, and standing with them to help them in these difficult hours.”
However, a spokesman for Louisiana’s governor said his office had not been contacted by the Trump campaign.
Richard Carbo, spokesman for Gov. John Bel Edwards, told the Associated Press Trump was welcome to Louisiana, “but not for a photo-op.” Instead, Carbo proposed Trump “consider volunteering or making a sizable donation to the LA Flood Relief Fund to help the victims of this storm.”
What a double standard we are witness too from the liberal MSM. Remember when the media ripped George W. Bush during Hurricane Katrina and they completely ignore the fact that Barack Obama has all but ignored the Louisiana flooding as he golf and refuses to cut his vacation short.
President George W. Bush was torn to shreds in 2005 by mainstream media commentators for his initial response to Hurricane Katrina – yet President Obama’s detached response to the recent Louisiana floods has been met with resounding silence from those same outlets.
“George Bush doesn’t care about black people” was the shocking charge by singer Kanye West about President Bush’s response to Katrina. West’s was a particularly blunt assessment, but echoed a growing narrative pushed by mainstream media outlets that Bush’s response was out of touch, inept and most of all, he didn’t care about people on the ground.
Much of the media coverage at the time not only criticized Bush for the difficulties the federal government faced in responding to the disaster, but also lambasted him for taking too long to return from vacation and to visit the site on the ground.
When he did return early from vacation, just two days after the disaster hit, he faced further criticism for flying over New Orleans on his way back to Washington D.C. before flying out to visit the victims of the tragedy.
U.S. Swimmer Ryan Lochte, Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger & Jimmy Feigen Robbed at Gunpoint in Rio at Olympics
RYAN LOCHTE AND THREE OTHER U.S. SWIMMERS ROBBED AT GUNPOINT IN RIO …
NBC News is reporting that U.S. Olympic swimmers Ryan Lochte, Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger and Jimmy Feigen were robbed at gunpoint at the Rio Olympics. According to accounts, the four U.S. Athletes left France House early Sunday morning in a taxi headed for the Olympic Village. Their taxi was stopped by individuals posing as armed police officers who demanded the athletes’ money and other personal belongings. This is interesting, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) said that the U.S. Committee denied the crime. The investigation is in progress.”
Following conflicting reports — including the IOC denying any incident took place — Lochte himself confirmed with TODAY’s Billy Bush that he and the other swimmers were robbed at gunpoint.
“We got pulled over, in the taxi, and these guys came out with a badge, a police badge, no lights, no nothing just a police badge and they pulled us over,” Lochte said. “They pulled out their guns, they told the other swimmers to get down on the ground — they got down on the ground. I refused, I was like we didn’t do anything wrong, so — I’m not getting down on the ground.
“And then the guy pulled out his gun, he cocked it, put it to my forehead and he said, ‘Get down,’ and I put my hands up, I was like ‘whatever.’ He took our money, he took my wallet — he left my cell phone, he left my credentials.”
Newly Released Clinton Emails Shed Light on Inappropriate Relationship Between Hillary Clinton State Dept. and Clinton Foundation
JUST ONE INCESTUOUS RELATIONSHIP … THE HILLARY CLINTON STATE DEPARTMENT AND THE CLINTON FOUNDATION.
As reported at CNN, the newly released Clinton emails show just how inappropriate the relationship was between the Hillary Clinton State Department and the Clinton Foundation. Connections to Hillary Clinton and payments to the Clinton Foundation seemed to get individuals access with the U.S. State Department. Unbelievable, this is nothing more than using one’s position within the government for one’s own person gain.
These new emails show an obvious conflict of interest and quid pro quo of influence and corruption. Good grief America, is this what you really want as president of the United States? Seriously! Isn’t it amazing that these new round of emails had not yet been previously released.
Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin asks the ultimate question that needs to be answered, “Hey MSM, how many times do Hillary’s emails need to ‘renew questions’ about Clinton graft before they’ve answered them?”
Newly released emails from Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state raise questions about the nature of the department’s relationship with the Clinton Foundation.
Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, released 296 pages of emails from the Democratic presidential nominee, including 44 that Judicial Watch says were not previously handed over to the State Department by Clinton. The emails, many of which are heavily redacted, raise questions about the Clinton Foundation’s influence on the State Department and its relations during her tenure.
Pay for Play … If this is allowed, this Country is lost
In one instance, top Clinton Foundation official Doug Band lobbied Clinton aides for a job for someone else in the State Department. In the email, Band tells Hillary Clinton’s former aides at the department — Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin — that it is “important to take care of (redacted).” Band is reassured by Abedin that “Personnel has been sending him options.”
The emails were obtained by the group through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch against the State Department in 2015. The group did not respond to a CNN request for comment.
The Trump campaign seized at the new batch of emails, citing them as evidence of Clinton being corrupt. The prolonged investigations into her use of a private email server while at the State Department has fueled public distrust of her and plagued her presidential bid. But the Justice Department declined to press charges against Clinton for her handling of classified information related to the server earlier this year, with FBI Director James Comey saying while she was “extremely careless,” it was his judgment that “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
