Clintons, Hurricanes, and 911 Anniversaries

Clintons, from the 90’s till now, will just not go away.

Bill Clinton keeps his feet in the Fundation business, and Hillary can’t even let go of the last election. She’s obsessed and Bill is possessed.

Once again, Hillary is sucking all the oxygen out of the room saying “It’s Happening!” Her book is happening, I guess, but she isn’t. Everyone was dying for her book?

Progressives have long been rewriting history, but now they want to revise it in real time.

Bill Clinton is banging the kettle to tell us to donate to disaster relief for hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Like he needs to tell us? The extorter-in-chief of disasters cares.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Hillary wastes no time rolling out her revision of the election.

Timing is everything. Hillary opens her book sale the day after 911, Never Forget anniversary. Also the date of the Benghazi attack 5 years ago, which Hillary never did take responsibility in. And two days after the devastating Florida Hurricane Irma. Move over Irma, Hurricane Hillary is on the loose. She stuck her finger in two eyes at once.

After the biggest US election, suffering a historical defeat, she now needs to tell us “What Happened”. The people happened, Hillary. Benghazi happened. Pay to play and corruption happened. Deleted emails happened. Lying and obstruction of justice happened. Now she is full of explanations to tell us “What Happened.” No, she owed us explanations for her actions for the corruption and obstruction, not self-righteous election revision.

She should be in jail not out signing books. The Politics of Arrogance.

The Clinton Foundation Presidency

I came to the conclusion that the Clinton Fundation is actually the lynch pin of or to Hillary being president. It is critical to the effort of her candidacy. It is integral to it.

Now you can file this under conspiracy theories, but with Clintons it is a lot more about conspiracies and much less about theory — as they have proven over the years. Yet it is good cover for them to blame conspiracy theorists, when they are the conspiracists.

What I mean is that if you listen to all the cries to shut the Foundation down, not just stop Bill’s speeches and taking foriegn money, it becomes a serious issue should Hillary become president. So in the Clinton’s greedy world, I don’t know which one is really more important, the Foundation or the White House? It’s the chicken or egg dilemma.

I believe is they are both necessary, together, to the Clintons because one compliments and depends on the other. I’d say you need both, for both to run according to the plans for each. But that really makes the Foundation the critical one.

So a presidency without the Foundation in operation just does not have the same impact, does it? And the the Foundation without getting her the presidency just does not have the same attraction for all those influences and donors. So that’s where I’m at. You may get to different conclusion than me, and I could be wrong.

Should she lose, the Foundation goes on in the same way it does now, though deflated to what it would be with a Clinton presidency. There would be no restrictions on money or speeches or whatever — the corruption that they’ve been involved in. But if she has the Presidency, it ups the attraction of money and influence of the Foundation. (cha-ching) Perhaps I’m making too much of the money and influence? I don’t think so. The puzzle pieces are there but we aren’t supposed to put them together.

My determination, then, is that they optimally need both to make it all work and really be lucrative. That’s the incentive. I mean it is not about the paltry salary or just prestige of the presidency. Its more about the influence of the Foundation — or their ends.

What is supposed to be a charity is really more about the self-interests of the Clintons — a vehicle rather than an avenue to help people. The presidency then could be so much tied to the interest of the Foundation that basically without the Fundation, having the presidency is almost pointless. She needs both. With it, they get the benefit of both worlds and everyone wins, in their corrupt minds.

And this is why, as the voices call for the Foundation to be shut down, Clinton loyalists get so defensive about it. James Carville says “if they shut it down, people are going to die!” And that talking point is repeated by them all — it’s life or death. The last thing they want is to shut the Fundation down — for many reasons we don’t have to list.

A shut down constitutes a sacrifice to the Clintons in order to get the presidency. They don’t sacrifice for anything or anyone. Others sacrifice for the Clintons, that’s how it works. There will be a bloody feud if they are forced to shut it down. They will fight for it.

Of course, they could always find alternative routes for their influence game. But that takes time to set up, an added burden to Clinton loyalists. Better to keep the racket they have.

Clinton fraud Foundation

Wall Street Whistleblower Turns His Scrutiny on the Clinton Foundation

Charles Ortel: ‘This is a charity fraud’
BY: Alana Goodman | May 5, 2016 | Washington Freebeacon

The Wall Street analyst who uncovered financial discrepancies at General Electric before its stock crashed in 2008 claims the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation has a number of irregularities in its tax records and could be violating state laws.

Charles Ortel, a longtime financial adviser, said he has spent the past 15 months digging into the Clinton Foundation’s public records, federal and state-level tax filings, and donor disclosures. That includes records from the foundation’s many offshoots—including the Clinton Health Access Initiative and the Clinton Global Initiative—as well as its foreign subsidiaries.

According to Ortel’s reports, the contribution disclosures from the Clinton Foundation don’t match up with individual donors’ records. He also argued that the foundation is not in compliance with some state laws regarding fundraising registration, disclosure requirements, and auditing rules.

This week, Ortel is starting to release his findings in the first of a series of up to 40 planned reports on his website. His allegation: “this is a charity fraud.”

“Starting almost 20 years ago in 1997, the Clinton Foundation spread its activities from Little Rock, Arkansas, to all U.S. states and to numerous foreign countries without taking legally required steps to function and solicit as a duly constituted public charity,” wrote Ortel, in a letter posted on his website.

Although Ortel has been a commentator for conservative outlets, his findings might not be easy for authorities to ignore. After spending decades working in mergers and acquisitions at some of Wall Street’s top firms, he has been an early whistleblower on financial irregularities at companies such as General Electric and AIG.

It’s shaping up to be an interesting election. Maybe even a nail-biter for Hillary and Bill, no matter how much they try to cover it over and rework the documents.

Also interesting that to Democrats none of this matters, it’s another “nothingburger.”

But according to this report, so far, there are flagrant violations all the way to the beginning in the 1990’s. And if they had planned — if push comes to shove — on getting a presidential pardon from Obama, that looks very problematic. Ortel points out that most of the violations fall under state laws, not federal, so that would eliminate the presidential pardon possibility. Well, it is a real mess for Clintons and their allies. Nothing it ain’t.

Spinning Failure as Success

The Obama administration has got one tactic down to a science. In their efforts to defend Obama or anything he does, you can count on one thing, their ability to spin their own failures into success.

The same tactics are used in their press statements or in the State of the Union Speech. It’s a flaming example to the world. Not only don’t they like the idea of peace through strength, they want to do the opposite to disprove it any time they have the chance.

We’ve always known the progressives, Democrats, Liberal Left whatever are good at spinning things. They’ve had lots of practice. But now, in power, they can even spin their failures as success. We saw it the Clinton administration. One of the last statements of Bill Clinton leaving the White House was, we done a lot of good. And we’ve seen it ever since Obaama took office. Every time there is bad news they spin like tops.

It’s been a talking point for Clinton even to the present with his foundation that they do a lot of good with the money. I suppose that somehow makes up for the misuse. In their crazy world it does. Like in an interview with Bloomberg News last year:

“Has anybody proved that we did anything objectionable? No. Have we done a lot of good things with this money? Yes.” — Bill Clinton said.

Obamites have to go to the ultimate. They will spin an intentionally provocative act of our enemy into a success, when it suits them. Of course it is treasonous by any measure. They would spin that too. It’s what they do. So a provocative act of war by North Korea, Iran, Cuba or any dictatorship can simply be spun into a success somehow, to disguise the administration’s failures.

Iran seizes our boat and sailors in a highly provocative act, so we spin it into a success of diplomacy. It shows what they are doing is working. Actually it validates their failure — making excuses for the enemy. But spin it they will. They twist it into a validation that the failed Iran deal is really a success. And on and on it goes playing into the hands of our enemy. Is it any wonder they act the way they do? Then Obama accuses his opponents and critics of aiding the enemy, or being a recruitment tool for Islamic terrorists.(the enemy he cannot name) It’s a pattern.

Media in Meltdown Mode

First we had Brian Williams in liar-gate and now the steaming fresh George Stephanopoulos ‘donation derriere-gate’. But what is the message, other than media is not the responsible organ of public trust it ought to be? Media seems to be in a meltdown.

It makes an overall statement of lamestream’s credibility — right, it has none. More importantly to the point, what is the error it committed? They knew the track record and who these guys were when they negotiated and signed these mega contracts.

Breitbart: (Stephanopoulosis worse than Williams)

“Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer argued George Stephanopoulos’ behavior is worse than Brian Williams’ on Monday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

Earlier, Schweizer said … “He certainly knew that he had donated to the Clinton Foundation and he also knew that — as I lay out in the article, he had participated in all these events. I mean, we’re not just talking about George Stephanopolous’ time — his money. We’re also talking about his time.

Does the MSM think a huge contract is going to change who they are? Does creating a nice job around them change anything?

Let’s take it a step further. The Clintons are perfect examples. Do we think the money or prestige of a large charitable foundation, in their name, is going to change who they are? Put some more lipstick on that pig. Was making her Secretary of State? Is running for president? Of course MSM knows who these people are and so do we. They are who they’ve always been.

So what is the shock and consternation from the media corporates? They knew what they were getting. Most of us saw the red flags when Stephanopoulos first surfaced as a media mogul. Sure they can install George at the head of a division or anything else, but guess what? He is still George Stephanopoulos — not wonder boy, Mediatron. Progressives love to reinvent themselves, they do it all the time, but it doesn’t change who they are.

Now we’ll have the debate, controversy about Brian Williams coming back. That gave me an idea. Why not put him back on journalism and embed him in Hillary Clinton’s campaign on the road? Between the two of them they would be able to create some of the best alternative reality we’ve ever heard. And that might be just the thing to kick start Hillary’s campaign. It would make for the most fascinating air-brushed coverage to draw the viewers, too. It’s the best of both worlds, media and politics, which in their case are pretty much the same thing. But they would know what they are getting.

Clinton foundation full of red flags

With so Many Red Flags, Why Isn’t the IRS Auditing the Clinton Foundation?

by Charles Ortel – 16 Mar 2015 | Breitbart

Sixteen months ago, Nicholas Confessore and Amy Chozick wrote in The New York Times about the loose governance and financial performance of the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. For example, after more than 10 years in operation, the Foundation had internal controls that were only just coming into play, while financial disclosures seemed sloppy and even misleading.

In addition, two months have elapsed since Eric Braverman– the talented executive recruited in July 2013 to put the Clinton Foundation back into order– resigned unexpectedly several weeks following renewal of his long-term management contract by the Board of Directors.

Actually accounting for financial impact?

Media reports suggest Braverman lost out fighting the melange of Clinton loyalists who behave as Bill and Hillary have done throughout their adult lives: acting as if rules are for other people and noble ends justify transgressions, even egregious ones.

More: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/03/16/with-so-many-red-flags-why-isnt-the-irs-auditing-the-clinton-foundation/

The answer from the Clinton mobile defense team is “there is no there there” or “no evidence has been produced that….” And the response to that is Bill and Hillary Clinton are involved, need we say more? With the track record of the shady, sleazy politics and activity of the Clintons, their involvement anywhere should require an investigation.

After all, the IRS audits and investigates any other players, even for years. Yet they haven’t looked into the foundation money trail and State? It takes global-sized blinders to ignore that. Meanwhile, the DoJ has attacked businesses’ like gun dealers — not to mention guitar manufacturers –and seized bank accounts for simply making objectionable deposits or purchases. They confiscate the funds as well. But in this case, there is not a huge investigation. Rather Clintonista supporters are offended when someone reports facts which themselves are the smoking gun. Businesses get operation Choke point, Clintons and their foundation get “it does so much good.”

We already have a president in office who is not impeachable no matter what he seems to do. Then we have a foundation with direct government connections that is apparently off limits and immune from investigation or audit by the IRS for its flagrant practices. Again, all of it so scandalous and the Clintonites say there is no evidence. There doesn’t have to be, just the egregious appearance of so many abuses and conflicts are quite enough.

Suppose a public official has money in his pocket and gave favorable treatment to the source. Then people say but nothing connects that money in his pocket with the favorable treatment. They say there is no evidence. So when (LA) William Jefferson had all that money in his freezer he could have said, “nothing connects it to my actions.” Case closed. It is absurd that we do not investigate it. Why hasn’t there been some sting operation by FBI? Is it because Clintons are above and beyond the reach of the law?

Then again, Politico magazine described the rifts and rivalry within the foundation. Struggles that ensued when daughter Chelsea brought in a new CEO to right the ship. (replacing Clinton loyalist Bruce Lindsey)He resigned after getting board support.

The previously untold saga of Braverman’s brief, and occasionally fraught tenure trying to navigate the Clintons’ insular world highlights the challenges the family has faced trying to impose rigorous oversight onto a vast global foundation that relies on some of the same loyal megadonors Hillary Clinton will need for the presidential run sources have said she is all but certain to launch later this year. — Politico

An investigation with teeth or IRS audit is justified. Instead, we read the facts to a chorus of denials about evidence. Let’s all take a stupid pill. That will solve it. Plus while Hillary was at State and her server was in NY, State had no confirmed Inspector General. An obvious outsourced server would have set off alarms.

Townhall

Bill Clinton and President Obama had an agreement that the Clinton Foundation would not accept any new donations from most governments while she was Secretary of State, and that any new, or increased, donations would be subject to State Department review. Of course, that didn’t really happen, and Clinton has failed to disclose the foundation’s donors since 2010, despite a 2008 promise to do so on an annual basis.

Bloomberg reported on the IG problem, obvious to anyone that cared — and certainly would be known to Hillary Clinton.

Instead of that being a problem, we were told ‘there is no evidence of any wrongdoing.’ Now we see how instrumental her server violation was and it was in NY close to the Foundation operation. Did anyone cry about not confirming an IG? They have had a similar situation in the Department of Interior. So, again, objectionable businesses get operation Choke Point, and the State Department under Hillary did not get an inspector general. If any place needed one at that time, it was State.

Hillary, despite the truth

A Quinnipiac poll “shows that voters no longer consider her “honest and trustworthy.””

On the face that sounds horrible for the first-Heiress of the White House. However, could they somehow spin that into filet mignon? Not really, but they probably don’t have to.

On the contrary, that is exactly how Democrats like their candidates. In fact, it just qualifies her as the right nominee. That sounds like exactly the reason Democrats will vote for her. It might even guarantee she wins, in their eyes. So it’s terrific news.

Let’s recap the typical Democrat voter, on the major issues — we call them scandals — of the day. They see the news but its how they think that counts.

Benghazi — Dems said that it was a “fabricated scandal” by Republicans. They said voters would not care and, come 2016, it would not make any difference to voters.

Email servergate — they said it was certainly no scandal and that it would not make a bit of difference to Democrat voters, who already like and believe in her.

Hillary’s lack of a record (even the ones she didn’t hide) — they said that would not make any difference to voters.

Clinton Foundation and Hillary — read my lips, everybody now, Democrats will not care about that stuff. It won’t matter to voters.

See a trend yet? To punctuate it, top Clinton operative Paul Begala put it in layman’s terms for us, just in case we missed the drumbeat-message. (enjoy)

“Voters do not give a shit. They do not even give a fart… Find me one persuadable voter who agrees with HRC on the issues but will vote against her because she has a non-archival-compliant email system and I’ll kiss your ass in Macy’s window and say it smells like roses.”

So go suck on an exhaust pipe, she’s a shoe-in. Run her up the flagpole. Voters don’t care.

Now, people don’t think she is trustworthy. So you can correctly assume it will not make a bit of difference to voters. Actually, with Dems a negative is more often a positive.

How many ways can they say “we don’t care,” even if she’s not “honest or trustworthy”?

“Hard Choices”…. I think not.

As Hillary turns… the latest

(With a little splash of satire and sarcasm)
Grab a cup of coffee and sit down, man do I have a far-fetched story to tell you. No, they haven’t landed on Mars….yet anyhow.

But you remember that Hillary Clinton, who was running for president in ’08, and all the flack she got about her records? Or do you remember her when Bill was president, how there were all those document problems? Heck, I still don’t know if they found them all. Wasn’t there a closet, basement, law office files and lots of boxes — here and there?

Well, you know how she was Secretary of State and high profile for years running the State Department? Well, it turns out she set up all her email addresses outside the official State Department. Why do you suppose she’d ever thinnk of doing that? An old hand at record chases and archives ought to have something to do with it. But the best part is she set up the servers for it at her house in Chappaqua. Did you ever hear anything so weird?

Now you and me both know the Clintons are no perfect politicians but this takes the cake, after all the troubles she had over her records — or lack thereof — before. Then you know Bubba runs the Clinton Global Initiative.”The mission of the Clinton Global Initiative is to turn ideas into action.” Sure he’s busy running that and money is flowing, like it always does with the Clintons. Well, except when they are dead broke – which must be often.

Anyways, all this has me thinking what the hell is wrong with her? I mean she knows you can’t just do that and opt out of the governmental system of things. Doesn’t she know her boss, Barry, is the only one who can truly hide his records and get away with it, without people making it a big deal? But Hillary now, she has some ‘splaining to do.

Still, even the record obfuscator, Barry would be aware she was doing that. I mean the guy spent half of his first campaign chasing down Hillary’s records to attack her. Now she must have had some reasons to do that, obviously. She didn’t want the public prying into the records. Maybe she didn’t want her boss looking over her shoulder keeping tabs on her? Never know, but that is the point, why? I hear she never much trusted him, and I don’t think he did her either. Nor was Bubba happy with team Obama after that deal in South Carolina labeling him a racist. Then Bill said ‘this whole thing is the biggest fairytale I’ve ever seen.’ Talk about fair tales. I suppose he might be over that by now.

So why do you suppose she would go to all that trouble to keep her emails out of the loop? And since she quit State she’s been pretty quiet what with working with Bill in the Foundation and all, and busy raising money for her campaign I mean the foundation, or something like that. See if all those emails and stuff was sitting there in servers in the house, it would be in the same place as Bill and the foundation’s business. It’s all sort of confusing, isn’t it? I mean I can’t figure this out. Bill was the one we used to call slick Willy. You suppose he had access to all that information of State too? Does that conflict with what he is working on?

“The White house guidance is,” according to Josh Earnest….oh never mind, what difference at this point does it make anyway?

Get this, then she went around the State Dep. lecturing her own people to not use private email accounts. I guess no one there asked her about hers. Funny. What could be going on there? It’s only water-cooler talk now, you know how people do when something new goes around. At least two key people knew it all along, Obama and Hillary. Three with Bubba. So if most everything was sent to her that would be a huge amount of data, wouldn’t it? I mean they’d have to be industrial sized servers these days with the amounts of email, especially as the Sec of State.

The thing that gets me is the big Global Initiative and the Clinton Foundation that Hillary’s been helping out with. I bet many of the same places and people are overlapped in both the Foundation and State. Seems like it would be a giant web, oops that’s the wrong word.

The cover story is an inference from State that the issue is broader than Hillary:

On Tuesday, Harf said, “We reached out to all of the former secretaries of state to ask them to provide any records they had. Secretary Clinton sent back 55,000 pages of documents to the State Department very shortly after we sent the letter to her. She was the only former secretary of state who sent documents back in to this request. These 55,000 pages covered her time, the breadth of her time at the State Department.”

It just gets curiouser and curiouser with those Clintons, doesn’t it? There always seems to be large amounts of money involved too, no? I can’t wrap my head around how all this fits together. There’s former president Bill, and Hillary sets up servers directing all her State Department info there. He’s sitting there beside it saying what is she working on, I wonder? Then she is set to run for president unchallenged. Tricky Dick had nothing on Hypocrite Hillary. She crossed that bar long ago.

Hillary, you’ve got mail!
