Screen Shot 2016-01-23 at 2.38.28 PMAh yes, it has finally hit the big time news, and Trump actually has something to sink his dentures into – the Clinton Foundation. Of course readers of TGP have seen this coming for some time, and have groaned with frustrations as Sanders went down in flames carrying Hillary’s secret (among other things) to his political retirement back in the senate.

Let me do a brief chronological synopsis.

May 30, 2016 With Clinton’s Nixonian Email Scandal Deepening, Sanders Must Demand Answers:

The power couple’s two foundations, the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative, now together reportedly worth more than $2 billion, both function effectively as money-laundering operations providing salaries to Clinton family members and friends. And Hillary Clinton, particularly while serving as President Obama’s secretary of state, was in a perfect position to do favors for unsavory foreign leaders seeking to have their countries kept off of State Department lists of human rights violators, and for US businesses seeking lucrative business deals abroad. It’s those kinds of email conversations that would have benefited from a private server, since US State Department official computers have dedicated back-up systems that would be hard or impossible to wipe, and are also by law subject to Freedom of Information inquiries from journalists and the public.

June 3, 2016 Clinton’s Anti-Trump Rant Ignored Her Own High Crimes:

In her (Hillary Clinton’s) Thursday address, she called America “an exceptional country.” Its sordid history shows otherwise. Her anti-Trump rant ignored her longstanding criminal record, including using the Clinton Foundation as a suspected criminal enterprise, masquerading as an NGO charity, vulnerable to racketeering charges.

July 9, 2016  From the mouth of toxic babes… :

For exposing Hillary’s true political nature and character, that is, focusing on her career as a willing shill of moneyed interests, and its corollary, being an eager instrument and cheerleader for the numerous crimes of the American ruling class —from coups in Latin America to the utter destruction of Syria, Libya (her crown jewel in policy disasters), the Ukraine and elsewhere— most under her watch, and her shameless enrichment —along with Hubby Bill, of slick fame—through crooked front organizations like the cynically created Clinton Foundation and its spawn the Clinton Global Initiative (see Clinton Disaster Fundraising: Predatory Humanitarianism? by Haiti’s foremost intellectual in exile, Dady Chery) is no tangential or frivolous matter, it IS the issue that the electorate, especially many Blacks and women, who follow this woman benightedly, should be considering now that HRC’s likelihood of becoming the next president increases by the day (a fact augmented by Obama’s obvious reluctance to press the FBI investigation into mailgate).

July 22, 2016 The Triumph of Imperialist Feminism: Hillary vs the Immense Revolution:

Clinton and her supporters highlight her decades of advocacy on behalf of women and children, from her legal work at the Children’s Defense Fund to her women’s rights initiatives at the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

And yet there are parallels between the tactics Clinton employed to defend Taylor and the tactics she, her husband, and their allies have used to defend themselves against accusations of wrongdoing over the course of their three decades in public life.

Alana Goodman does not elaborate on this last part, except to say that, in discussing this episode, HRC does not mention either the hotline, or “the plight of the 12-year old girl who had been attacked.” (This is from interviews conducted by Arkansas journalist Roy Reed, with both Clintons, in 1985, for an Esquire magazine profile that was never completed; these are the “Hillary Tapes” of Goodman’s title.) And, okay, sure, clearly this episode in the life of an attorney who had aspirations for political power was not the thing she was always interested in talking about.

However, as with the Clinton Foundation, and as Goodman indicates, there often seems to be something smarmy going on whenever the Clintons engage in “good works.” This is no surprise to anyone who follows the Clintons’s story, and any Clinton supporters who are somehow convinced otherwise (or who think it’s all coming from the vast right-wing conspiracy–which does exist, of course, but it’s the right-wing of the vast imperialist machinery, of which the Clintons are a part) are the kind of liberals (and “progressives,” ugh) who are always ready to drink the kool-aid.

July 25, 2016  Erdowin, Erdowon, Erdogan:

Apparently, Fehtullah has imported scores of Turkish instructors to teach English to Americans in his charter schools, thanks to the farcical H1B visa scheme (foreigners can be imported when no Americans can be found, able to do the same job).

But all makes sense, when considering the strong ties between the fetid mullah and the Clinton Foundation. Which, as demonstrated in the blog “The Clintons’ War on Women” should be more accurately renamed “The Oral and Anal Sex Foundation.” http://wp.me/p2e0kb-1Xk

August 15, 2016 Roaming Charges: the Return of Assassination Politics:

A new cache of emails has emerged courtesy of the Clintons’ old nemesis Judicial Watch, showing how quickly Clinton Foundation flacks circled the State Department seeking favors and contracts for their noxious clients, none more malign than Gilbert Chagoury, the Lebanese-Nigerian developer and big Clinton donor who was seeking access to Jeffrey Feltman, the former ambassador to Lebanon. These malign emails showing how access was auctioned off at Foggy Bottom were largely submerge by the wall-to-wall coverage of Trump’s self-inflicted wounds.

August 17, 2016 Did the Clinton Foundation Steal from the Poor?

Please note that Dady was one of the first (going back at least to May 2016) ringing this bell because of the Clinton Foundation’s absolutely despicable showing in Haiti.

The Clintons have many problems these days, but the worst of them is probably the information that Charles Ortel started to release from his website and Twitter account (@charlesortel) in early May 2016. Ortel is the financial analyst who exposed General Electric’s stock as being overvalued before it took a dive in 2008. After 15 months’ examination of the public records of the Clinton Foundation entities, he finds that huge sums of money cannot be accounted for, and he believes that it is a family affair for Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton to harm the victims of disasters and the desperately poor throughout the planet. Educated and privileged people like the Clintons should know better, yet they preen, even now, believing we will fall for the hype manufactured by their handlers. The true, damning facts, however, are out there for each of us to see.

“Smarmy” is kind of like sticking your hand in a barrel of slugs, it doesn’t even capture the amount of suffering that has resulted from the Clinton Foundation, and frankly a high majority of big foundations and charities. Where there is a lot of money, there is a lot of power, and a there are too many who cannot and will not turn away from corruption when it will line their own vaults with platinum and influence of an even higher values.

Obviously, this raises the question of Hillary Clinton’s continued viability as a presidential candidate. With her already high disapproval ratings, Trump could be in a “default” situation. If such a scenario, a third party candidate could have a significantly increased shot. Therefore, at least hedge your bets and throw some support behind Stein and Baraka.

One thought on “Did they say “Clinton Foundation?”

  1. A correct appreciation of HRC and the Clinton Foundation and Initiative, whereby the usually neglected fact is exposed that the private server installed in a house in Chappaqua
    New York served to hide all the email intercourse concerning both institutions and these were promptly destroyed. It is unfortunate that so many women put their unconditional faith in electing HRC, when it is fairly certain that a very deep disappointment as with Obama will result. However the lone bright light may be that her administration will preside over the coming downfall of the more aggressive elements in US foreign policies
    if as can be expected HRC will venture in such debacles like what happened in sad Libya.
    Meanwhile in the interim: Nothing happens. Nobody comes, nobody goes. It’s awful – Samuel Beckett, ‘Waiting for Godot’.
