It’s not new world order, it’s the new world paid for order!

If you put your dollar into the vending machine and press the coke button-  you get a coke.  It is how things are done.

In the HRC world of the Clinton Foundation, you are expected to do the same thing, only  the vending machine IS the Foundation, the button you push is Huma Abedin, and the “coke” you get is Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State (and all that brings) and more than likely the next President of the United States.   Oh, and the price of that “coke” may vary, but you can be assured it goes up as the position goes up.

Steven Hayes  spends a lot of time on FOX news hour just shaking his head in disbelief at the criminal activities of the Clintons and their foundations, and marvels they are still standing.  Which I think is a feeling shared by millions upon millions of law abiding citizens across the nation. He writes a column that is illuminating as to the HISTORY of the Clintons being bought off.

As Bill Clinton entered the final year of his presidency, his aides put together a legacy-building trip to South Asia—the first visit to the region by a U.S. president since Jimmy Carter’s in 1978. Early drafts of the itinerary featured a notable exclusion: The president would visit India, an emerging ally, but had no plans to stop in neighboring Pakistan.

There were good reasons for this. Pervez Musharraf had seized power there in a military coup six months earlier. His regime was regarded as tolerant of Islamic radicals, perhaps even complicit in their attacks, and unhelpful on nuclear talks with India. Whatever the potential benefits to regional stability, a visit would be seen as legitimizing a troublemaker. Clinton had the support of many in the foreign policy establishment and his decision was popular among liberals in his party. In an editorial published February 18, 2000, the New York Times noted, “Pakistan has been lobbying hard in Washington”; the paper urged Clinton to stand firm, absent a return to civilian rule in the country and “concrete progress” on nukes and terror.

Four days later, Hillary Clinton weighed in. At a gathering in a private home on Staten Island, Clinton said she hoped her husband would be able to find time to visit Pakistan on his trip. That she spoke up on a matter of public controversy was interesting; where she did it was noteworthy.

Clinton was the guest of honor at a $1,000-per-plate fundraiser hosted by a group of prominent Pakistani doctors in New York, who acknowledged holding the dinner as part of that lobbying effort. The immediate beneficiary? Hillary Clinton, candidate for U.S. Senate. Organizers were told they’d need to raise at least $50,000 for her to show up. They did. The secondary beneficiary? Pakistan. Two weeks after Clinton told her hosts that she hoped her husband would do what they wanted him to do, the White House announced that Bill Clinton would, indeed, include Pakistan on his trip to South Asia.

Win, win, and win.

The White House naturally insisted that Hillary Clinton’s views had no bearing on her husband’s decision to change his itinerary. And a subsequent New York Times article about the curious sequence of events found “no evidence” she had prevailed upon the president to alter his plans. But that same article, published under the headline “Donating to the First Lady, Hoping the President Notices,” noted the “unique aspect” of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy: “While her husband still occupies the White House, people may seek to influence his policies by making donations to her Senate campaign.”

In fact, people did. The hosts of the event moved it up so that it might take place before a final decision had been made on the South Asian schedule. Suhail Muzaffar, one of two primary organizers of the fundraiser, told the paper: “‘We thought it went very well, in terms of the message and the timeliness of it, especially in terms of the president’s going to the region.” His co­host, Dr. Asim Malik, added: “I cannot deny that the fact that she’s the president’s wife makes a difference.”

And just the beginning of what would be the Clinton Foundation scheme.

Jonah Goldberg also reminds us that chasing the server/email scandal is a welcome distraction for the Clintons.  It is not and never has been about the emails or the server, it has been about the convenience of communications that allows for the ability of the Clintons to fleece people, nations and companies of their money by giving it to the Foundation.  There are too many PRIVATE and ILLEGAL moving parts to NOT have them all in one place!   Goldberg uses  an old sleight of hand joke- “look here, not there”- to remind us we need to pay attention to the OTHER hand!

Do you know the old wheelbarrow joke? It’s truly funny only to grandpas and the grandkids they tell it to, so I won’t bother with the elaborate setup. For years a factory worker pushes a wheelbarrow full of straw past a security guard on his way out. Suspicious that the guy is stealing something, the guard looks in the straw but can’t find anything. Finally, when the worker is retiring, the guard asks, “I know you’ve been stealing something — can you tell me what it is?

The guy smiles and says, “Wheelbarrows.”

That joke keeps popping into my head whenever I hear Hillary Clinton’s defenders say there’s no evidence of a quid pro quo in the fresh batch of emails released this week. According to many Republican critics, the trove provides fresh evidence that the Clinton Foundation was, in Donald Trump’s words, a “pay-to-play” scheme, selling access to and favors from the secretary of state.

The Clinton team says there’s no proof of that. Both Clinton and many of her critics can get ahead of the facts, though in opposite directions. But one thing is clear: Clinton lied. That’s not shocking; she’s famous for doing that.

Just last month, Clinton said, “There is absolutely no connection between anything that I did as secretary of state and the Clinton Foundation.” During her confirmation hearings, members of the Obama administration and Congress extracted assurances from Clinton that there would be a high wall between her State Department and her family’s foundation. It turned out it was more like a turnstile.

But does it make a difference? From the perspective that law and order, and right and wrong, actually do mean something today, I say yes- a hundred times yes!- to the ongoing effort to uncover just how criminally bent Hillary and Bill are.

You see, there is an argument out there that Hillary really doesn’t get what the big deal is here. Oh, she gets WE get it- which is why she shredded, bleached and burnt everything she could.  But she can’t grasp why she should not be able to take money, be influenced by foreign governments AND be President.  Other than it is illegal, unconstitutional and frankly smells as rank as a dead whale beached on the sand, I don’t see the problem either!

So now the meme is to push the idea that the Foundation MUST survive because of all the tens of millions it helps across the globe!

Well, to that I have several points:

1. Is it really helping? Where’s the real proof?  People in Haiti may disagree wholeheartedly on the premise that the Clinton Foundation and its parts are somehow efficiently bringing help to their devastated island. The critical part of any Ponzi scheme is to look like it’s working, as you fleece everyone up and down the line. So yes, the Clinton Foundation gives money away. But how much? And to whom?

2. How efficient is the foundation?  In fact just how efficient is the foundation in getting money from here to there?   The Clintons insist that this whole thing is no big deal because the Clinton Foundation uses all that money to save lives, and who doesn’t want to save lives? But a writer at the Federalist did a study of the data offered by the Foundation and found them wanting.

“As with other global charities, we rely on the support of individuals, organizations, corporations and governments who have the shared goal of addressing critical global challenges in a meaningful way,” said the spokesman, Craig Minassian. “When anyone contributes to the Clinton Foundation, it goes towards foundation programs that help save lives.”

If only that were true. When anyone contributes to the Clinton Foundation, it actually goes toward fat salaries, administrative bloat, and lavish travel.

Between 2009 and 2012, the Clinton Foundation raised over $500 million dollars according to a review of IRS documents by The Federalist (2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008). A measly 15 percent of that, or $75 million, went towards programmatic grants. More than $25 million went to fund travel expenses. Nearly $110 million went toward employee salaries and benefits. And a whopping $290 million during that period — nearly 60 percent of all money raised — was classified merely as “other expenses.” Official IRS forms do not list cigar or dry-cleaning expenses as a specific line item. The Clinton Foundation may well be saving lives, but it seems odd that the costs of so many life-saving activities would be classified by the organization itself as just random, miscellaneous expenses.

Now, because the Clintons are Clintons (“It depends on what the definition of ‘is’ is…”), their fallback defense will likely be that they didn’t technically run afoul of the law. After all, Hillary didn’t officially take control of the foundation until after she left the State Dept. And the Constitution doesn’t ever say that foreign governments can’t bribe the impeached and disbarred spouses of government officials. Sure, the Constitution says current officials can’t accept dirty cash from foreign government, but it never says that jetset spouses who fly to sex slave islands with convicted sex offenders aren’t allowed to collect under-the-table foreign cash.

That defense makes sense if you think the Founders opposed the practice of foreign governments directly bribing U.S. officials, but wholeheartedly supported the practice of foreign governments indirectly bribing U.S. officials by paying off their spouses. Are we to believe that Hillary was so divorced from the goings-on of the foundation that she was just randomly given official control of it (including having her first name added to the tax-exempt organization’s official name) immediately after leaving the State Department? Are we to believe that poor Hillary just had no clue what was going on at her family’s tax-exempt slush fund?

Oh she knows, and so do all the others in the world who give to the Clintons on the bet she becomes President. (Or better put, we as American voters- knowing how mega corrupt she is- vote her in anyway.  Frankly, it says more about us than her that she is even daring to run.)

Apparently, the Federalist writer was challenged by a leftie who took all his information FROM the foundation and reprinted it as a rebuttal of the revelation the Clintons are stealing.  To that, the writer responded and the leftie had to cry uncle.

Now, I don’t know why Jacobson didn’t spend any time examining where these “in-house” charitable expenditures actually ended up. I don’t know why he didn’t ask if spending millions on Bill Clinton’s personal library should really count as charity. I don’t know why he didn’t dig in and see if flying on private jets and eating fancy meals with celebrities were activities that are truly charitable in nature. After all, that’s where a huge chunk of this “in-house” charity money actually went.

It could be that he lacks the basic capacity to read and analyze a simple financial statement. It could be that he viewed highly compensated Clinton payroll employees (charity beneficiaries according to Jacobson’s analysis) as independent arbiters of what constitutes charity and what constitutes lily-gilding tax-exempt excess. It could be that he didn’t care at all about the actual, demonstrable facts and was instead far more interested in defending the Clintons, no matter the cost. Fortunately, Jacobson gives us a hint as to his intent.

According to Jacobson, the notion that all non-charitable grant money must be considered as “in-house” charity expenditures “depends on trusting the Clinton foundation’s characterization of its expenditures.” You don’t say. Well, luckily for us, the Clinton Foundation doesn’t have any history at all of deliberately mischaracterizing its financial information or deliberately hiding the source of millions of dollars worth of foreign donations.

So what we have from Jacobson is not a fact check, but an implication check. He likes the implications of agreeing with people on the Clinton payroll, so he trusts them, even when actual facts, history, and common sense contradict their assertions. Jacobson does not like the implications of facts that show the Clintons and their allies in a poor light, so he declares them to be false.

This is not journalism. This is not fact-checking. This is pathetic demagoguery, and a remarkably unimpressive display of it at that.

“Let me stop you at ‘while technically true,’” I told Jacobson via e-mail, “because that’s really the only standard that matters when judging whether something is true or not. Whether you happen to like a fact is irrelevant to whether it’s true. So when you tell me that the truth of a statement is not the primary factor in determining whether something is true [or] not (“I don’t expect it to be a full True”), it tells me that you have an agenda that’s separate from determining whether something is true. That’s disappointing.”

It’s also vintage PunditFact.

[UPDATE: Phil Kerpen notes on Twitter that PunditFact and PolitiFact are funded by a large and active Clinton Foundation donor and partner, a fact PunditFact conveniently failed to disclose in its defense of the Clinton Foundation.]

As long as there is a free Internet and people willing to do the work, all of us have a chance to at least debate the issues.  Are the Clintons corrupt?  Yes.  Do they hide evidence of it? Yes, have been for years. They are so corrupt they have actually warped the perception of what is corrupt.  The other day, I was reading an article and saw a short video of Eleanor Clift saying just that.

Clift said, “Equating what Donald Trump has done, in inciting potential violence in this country, talking casually Second Amendment people, accusing the president of being — and Hillary Clinton of being co-founders of ISIS, what Clinton has — what the emails, — that is garden-variety political influence –.”

3. Why isn’t anyone on the Left upset as the rest of us? Or how deep does this corruption go? Now, we can go through the exercise “What if George Bush received money from a foreign company that wanted to sell guns to our military at a great profit, what would the media say?”  We could, but we won’t.  Because we know the Left has successfully infiltrated the media.  They know she’s corrupt, but she’s paying them too, so it’s all good.

My question to Clift would be two fold; what does she consider other examples of garden variety political influence, and what would be her threshold they would need to pass through before she was offended?

Steven Hayes points out several that SHOULD offend Clift and ends with the cover-up.

While the FBI recovered thousands of work-related emails that Clinton failed to turn over, Comey reported that many others had been deleted. The FBI director acknowledged that while the FBI did not have “complete visibility” as to the contents of these emails or a thorough understanding of how they were permanently erased, he nonetheless offered his assurances that “there was no intentional misconduct” in the sorting of the emails.

If Comey’s explanations seemed generous when he made them, they seem even more charitable today. In his telling, Clinton’s failure to turn over thousands of work-related emails—at least some of which include evidence of coordination between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department that Clinton World was eager to keep secret—was merely the result of incompetence or bad luck. And the efforts her lawyers undertook to delete the others were unremarkable, benign. “We found no evidence that any of the additional work-related e-mails were intentionally deleted in an effort to conceal them,” Comey said at his press conference. Yet moments later, Comey acknowledged: “They deleted all e-mails they did not return to State, and the lawyers cleaned their devices in such a way as to preclude complete forensic recovery.”

There may be a simple reason the FBI didn’t find evidence of intent: They didn’t ask. That’s the explanation Representative Trey Gowdy offered in an interview with Fox News on August 24. “I didn’t see any questions on the issue of intent,” Gowdy said, referring to the FBI’s notes from its interview with Secretary Clinton.

And the evidence the FBI collected, particularly with respect to how some of Clinton’s “personal” emails were deleted, indicates that questions about intent ought to have been among the first ones asked. FBI interviews with the techs responsible for erasing Clinton’s emails suggest that her team went to great lengths to ensure the messages would never be seen again. The Clinton team used a technology called “BleachBit” to permanently delete those emails. BleachBit, according to its website, allows users to “shred files to hide their contents and prevent data recovery” and “overwrite free disk space to hide previously deleted files.” The techs used additional tools to ensure those emails would be unrecoverable.

So Clinton, who took virtually no precautions to safeguard her emails—”personal” or “work-related”—while they sat on her server, went to great lengths to ensure that the emails she withheld from the State Department could never again be seen by anyone. She did this nearly two years following her departure from the State Department and only after she understood that the government was interested in seeing her emails. Seems like a lot to do to protect yoga schedules and emails about the grandkids.

The challenge for Clinton is simple: survive until November 8. So she’s avoiding the media—265 days and counting since her last press conference—and trying to offer reassurances about the Clinton Foundation.

There’s little reason to believe her. This is the same woman, after all, who promised during her nomination hearing seven years ago that she would take extraordinary measures to separate the foundation from her work at the State Department and do her best to “avoid even the appearance of a conflict.”

Hell, son… she didn’t even try.

And Charles Krauthammer tells us why.

The central problem with Hillary Clinton’s e-mails was not the classified material. It wasn’t the headline-making charge by the FBI director of her extreme carelessness in handling it. That’s a serious offense, to be sure, and could very well have been grounds for indictment. And it did damage her politically, exposing her sense of above-the-law entitlement and — in her dodges and prevarications, her parsing and evasions — demonstrating her arm’s-length relationship with the truth. But it was always something of a sideshow. The real question wasn’t classification but: Why did she have a private server in the first place? She obviously lied about the purpose. It wasn’t convenience. It was concealment. What exactly was she hiding? Was this merely the prudent paranoia of someone who habitually walks the line of legality? After all, if she controls the server, she controls the evidence, and can destroy it — as she did 30,000 e-mails — at will. But destroy what? Remember: She set up the system before even taking office. It’s clear what she wanted to protect from scrutiny: Clinton Foundation business.

The foundation is a massive family enterprise disguised as a charity, an opaque and elaborate mechanism for sucking money from the rich and the tyrannous to be channeled to Clinton Inc. Its purpose is to maintain the Clintons’ lifestyle (offices, travel, accommodations, etc.), secure profitable connections, produce favorable publicity, and reliably employ a vast entourage of retainers, ready to serve today and at the coming Clinton Restoration.

The Clinton Restoration.  It was and is and will always be about them.

Never bring a cheap pistol to an AK47 shootout. Atlanta at its finest.

You can’t make it up.  First, the one black male “braces” the other by throwing out his chest. And yes, I was thinking of Kevin Hart’s comedy routine. Then he lets the second guy get back to his car, retrieve his AK47 pistol – which I’m sure is stolen- and then the real fun begins.   They chase each other around making threats and finally the gunfight starts.

The first guy falling down when he saw the AK was priceless. His legs, and his pistol bravery, left him!   Now if I’m the girlfriend IN the car and my boyfriend is using me for cover, I think I’m ducking, not watching like I’m a spectator.  But then again, none of these idiots are waiting for a call from NASA.

There is a black woman on Youtube making a commentary over the incident. That is also very enlightening.  “You take that shit to your grave!”  comment was outstanding. Quit posting on Instagram your crimes!

2016 race. The untrusted verse the unlikable.

Seriously, where did we go wrong as a nation?  We ended up with Barack for two terms; even after his first term was a nightmare and resulted in a crippled economy,  stuck in two wars that got hundreds of thousands killed and millions displaced (many coming here!), and a medical insurance system eating itself into oblivion, plus an ethics record that would make Nixon say “WTF?! And I resigned?”

Now we have HRC (and ALL THOSE TRAIN CARS WORTH OF BAGGAGE!) and “the Donald” carrying with him a gaffe machine and a total  lack of seriousness and humility.

(Which may be changing as we speak.  His trip to Louisiana I think got to him. This whole being President gig actually means something! Like who knew, right?!)

Somewhere out there are million upon millions of people like me, lovers of America, who wonder what the hell just happened! We went from good old fashioned corruption that was part of the state’s culture- like Edwin Edwards in Louisiana, a great story of political corruption baked into a culture (and a harbinger of our now national politics),  to a national candidate who is openly corrupt and a liar.

I mean at least TRY to hide it better!

The FBI turned over an additional 14,900 documents to the State Department that include emails Hillary Clinton’s lawyers failed to add to the batch of 30,000 that Clinton attorneys originally handed over.

The revelation came following a court hearing in an FOIA suit by Judicial Watch, which is suing Hillary Clinton for documents related to her private email server.

The FBI previously revealed that there were additional documents that were discovered during their criminal investigation of Clinton, but did not say how many.

No one expected the number to be 50% of the 30,000 emails Clinton turned over.

Does it matter?  Yes.  A resounding yes.  As in “come on man, why you doing that to me!”, yes!

It’s like having a crackhead relative who keeps stealing from you, except now instead of lying about it, he’s doing in front of you!  It went from sneaky stealing to robbery! That is what is frustrating so many people.

But sadly not enough.  HRC’s trustworthy numbers are at 14%.  Her poll numbers are over 40%.  Which reflects how badly Trump handled his campaign.  Anyone else, with the exception of Bush, would be beating her like a rented mule.

Judicial Watch released more than 700 new pages of State Department correspondence today. One of the exchanges shows Huma Abedin responding to a response from the Clinton Foundation’s Doug Band to set up a meeting for the Crown Prince of Bahrain. From Judicial Watch’s press release:

The Abedin emails reveal that the longtime Clinton aide apparently served as a conduit between Clinton Foundation donors and Hillary Clinton while Clinton served as secretary of state. In more than a dozen email exchanges, Abedin provided expedited, direct access to Clinton for donors who had contributed from $25,000 to $10 million to the Clinton Foundation. In many instances, Clinton Foundation top executive Doug Band, who worked with the Foundation throughout Hillary Clinton’s tenure at State, coordinated closely with Abedin…

Included among the Abedin-Band emails is an exchange revealing that when Crown Prince Salman of Bahrain requested a meeting with Secretary of State Clinton, he was forced to go through the Clinton Foundation for an appointment. Abedin advised Band that when she went through “normal channels” at State, Clinton declined to meet. After Band intervened, however, the meeting was set up within forty-eight hours. According to the Clinton Foundation website, in 2005, Salman committed to establishing the Crown Prince’s International Scholarship Program (CPISP) for the Clinton Global Initiative. And by 2010, it had contributed $32 million to CGI. The Kingdom of Bahrain reportedly gave between $50,000 and $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation. And Bahrain Petroleum also gave an additional $25,000 to $50,000.

Worse, Clinton isn’t just granting favors for money. It is expected that payment is offered regardless of whether or not Clinton was going to agree to the favor.  This is a fee based exercise.  Much like the Edwin Edwards’ time as governor, where if you wanted to see him you had better bring ten grand cash with you. He may agree with you from the outset, but you still had to pay!

The Clinton Foundation is part of an international set of foundations, all taking money.  Now CNN has this puff piece, citing mostly Clinton facts about the  Clintons act inside the Clinton foundation.  I won’t link it here, it’s a lie and I won’t promote obvious lying.

But remember, any good Ponzi scheme pays people.  Ask Bernie Madoff how that works. So you have to show success in order to keep the illusion of legitimacy as you steal the new victim’s blind.

I scanned the puff piece and noted the writer did not really address WHO is giving and why.  And she did not address how much money was actually being given to charity. Most operate well over 50% of all donations going to something.  Clinton Foundation is reportedly somewhere around 12%… that’s 12…1..2….percent.  The rest going to administrative costs- like employing Bill and Hill and Chelsea and half of the “parked” Clinton staff from the nineties that will suddenly show back up in the White House when HRC wins.

Plus remember, they are many and  international. Here is one “charity” in Sweden. Note on the board of directors is Bruce Lindsey.  She wins, you’ll see him again in the White House.

From 1998 Washington Post article, THIS is the Clinton Machine!

Whenever President Clinton finds himself in trouble, Bruce Lindsey is on the job, the seemingly permanent commander-in-chief of the Clinton shovel brigade.

An intense 49-year-old Arkansas lawyer for whom a blue blazer passes as casual attire, Lindsey serves as the invisible “captain of the defense,” as one former White House colleague put it, for the crisis of the moment. Lindsey’s preferred modus operandi, as described by those who have worked with him over the years, is to tamp down trouble even before it erupts or, when pressed, to relinquish only whatever tiny morsels of information he judges sufficient to keep the news media at bay.

Whether the allegations involve the draft, sexual liaisons or Whitewater, Lindsey functions as the president’s political lookout, bearer of bad news and chief damage control specialist.

“There is no end to which Bruce wouldn’t go for the president,” said Bill Burton, a fellow Arkansan and former White House colleague. “There are things Bruce would do for the president that nobody else on Earth would do, and Bruce wouldn’t even think twice about it.”

They are really, really corrupt. You are loyal to the Clintons, you get a lifetime of payoff.

It isn’t that they don’t do something, maybe occasionally something good. It is the corruption and misuse, openly that drives people crazy. Jimmy Carter build homes after he left.  Clinton built networks and used them to fund his lifestyle of international travel, private jets, and banking hundreds of millions for himself and his family and his loyal friends.  And occasionally, if a few crumbs fell of his table and hit, say Haitians, in the head, then okay. Not that those crumbs were corrupted if possible.

“…I don’t blame the Haitians for falling for it; Bill is one of the world’s greatest story-tellers. He has fooled people far more sophisticated than the poor Haitians. Over time, however, the Haitians wised up. Whatever their initial expectations, many saw that much of the aid money seems never to have reached its destination; rather, it disappeared along the way. Where did it go? It did not escape the attention of the Haitians that Bill Clinton was the designated UN representative for aid to Haiti. Following the earthquake, Bill Clinton had with media fanfare established the Haiti Reconstruction Fund. Meanwhile, his wife Hillary was the United States secretary of state. She was in charge of U.S. aid allocated to Haiti. Together the Clintons were the two most powerful people who controlled the flow of funds to Haiti from around the world.

The Haitian protesters noticed an interesting pattern involving the Clintons and the designation of how aid funds were used. They observed that a number of companies that received contracts in Haiti happened to be entities that made large donations to the Clinton Foundation. The Haitian contracts appeared less tailored to the needs of Haiti than to the needs of the companies that were performing the services. In sum, Haitian deals appeared to be a quid pro quo for filling the coffers of the Clintons.

For example, the Clinton Foundation selected Clayton Homes, a construction company owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, to build temporary shelters in Haiti. Buffett is an active member of the Clinton Global Initiative who has donated generously to the Clintons as well as the Clinton Foundation. The contract was supposed to be given through the normal United Nations bidding process, with the deal going to the lowest bidder who met the project’s standards. UN officials said, however, that the contract was never competitively bid for. Clayton offered to build “hurricane-proof trailers” but what they actually delivered turned out to be a disaster. The trailers were structurally unsafe, with high levels of formaldehyde and insulation coming out of the walls. There were problems with mold and fumes. The stifling heat inside made Haitians sick and many of them abandoned the trailers because they were ill-constructed and unusable.

The Clintons also funneled $10 million in federal loans to a firm called InnoVida, headed by Clinton donor Claudio Osorio. Osorio had loaded its board with Clinton cronies, including longtime Clinton ally General Wesley Clark; Hillary’s 2008 finance director Jonathan Mantz; and Democratic fundraiser Chris Korge who has helped raise millions for the Clintons. Normally the loan approval process takes months or even years. But in this case, a government official wrote, “Former President Bill Clinton is personally in contact with the company to organize its logistical and support needs. And as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has made available State Department resources to assist with logistical arrangements.” …”

That’s not right.  Had he kept ten million, spent 999,990,000 on charity, I would not say a thing.  Ten million is plenty right?  Not in HRC’s view. Which means if she wins, she’ll keep taking the money through foreign charities not open to IRS or congressional or even journalist review.  It will happen because it is already happening- and they get away with it.

Huma the plant, and not the flowery cool plant you give to someone.

If HRC gets in, Huma will be running things. And through her, the Muslim Brotherhood will be running things. One hell of a fall from Thomas Jefferson sending in the Marines to shut down Islamic pirates!

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (R) and Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin

This is not good. A long, LONG game being played out here.

How she got here is an amazing story of “kitman” and other Islamic techniques.  Her “westernization” is a total illusion. Her loyalty is NOT to America, but to her culture.

The evidence of Hillary’s aid, Huma Abedin’s connections to the Muslim Brotherhood and the Wahhabists is overwhelming, but an undercover video of her sentiments is rare. A video surfaced of Huma’s call to allow Muslim refugees to enter the U.S as it happened in Europe finally surfaced. This links the dots to the Muslim Minority Affairsconnection by Huma and her family.

It is crucial to understand this issue of what is The Muslim Minority Affairs issue is which Huma was deeply involved in and the proof of membership can be seen in the link [here].

So her membership in ironclad, she, her mother, brother and father were instrumental. It is this family that sparked the movement in the U.S. and they all worked as a collective unit in this mission.

Huma’s father, “Sayed Zaynul Abedin” in the manifesto commissioned by the late King Fahd bin Abdul Aziz [here] detailed the mission to flood the U.S. with Muslim minorities. The Abedins’ Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs—on whose Board Huma Abedin served for years—her father’s contributions (including his name on it) that had the king’s blessings and approval on literally every page. The Abedins played a central role. The House of Al Saud had used Huma’s father Sayed Zaynul Abedin’s work Muslim Minorities in the West published in 1998 as part of 29 works to construct a plan to conquer the world with Islam (see P. 134) and “The Muslim Minority Affairs” in the west was a major discussion with the United States mentioned throughout. The king of his pride had let out state secrets like others did with Wikileaks. Page after page explained the “Affairs”, not simply as a title, or as a religious or even a social activism, but as a Saudiforeign policy, a jurisprudence and commandment from the highest of authorities commissioned to the Saudi Ministry of Religious Affairs. It was an entire management system using “The Muslim Minority Affairs” as the main vehicle to bringing victory against an infidel world by increasing the numbers of Muslims in the United States.

It spoke of recruiting Muslims that live in non-Muslim lands and transforming them as a collective unit. It spoke of already established centers, educational programs, mosques and organizations in the United States like ISNA and MSA, all geared towards hindering any western plan for Muslim assimilation in a non-Muslim host nation. It mentioned “The Muslim Society of North America (ISNA) and the Muslim Students Association (MSA) [which Huma was member] established in the United States in 1962” (p. 65), as key agents to protect Muslims from assimilation.

It named the mosques and centers in major United States cities established to carry out the mission. Five decades of efforts were spent with billions to ensure that Muslim refugees and immigrants will be an “unassimilated group” which then can influence the non-Muslim host nation and other nations, regardless of how small the numbers of Muslims, by shifting the demographic scale due to their population growth in favor of this Saudi agenda.

Imagine a weak President dependent on a Muslim Brotherhood plant directing her decisions about our nation’s foreign policy and security.  Oh wait, you don’t have to imagine it, wait a few months to LIVE IT! It will be like watching Obama be directed in his dealings with Iran by Valerie Jarrett, who is Iranian with a communist background in her family.   Yikes, double yikes! Being a communist used to be a non-starter when running for President.

A little Huma background. Understand, they aren’t denying who she is, just that what we see ISN’T really, well accurate?  I’m not sure. At this point you just have to assume they are lying to get to the prize.  Like her NOT being an editor of a woman hating magazine run by her family, even though it clearly shows she was…for ten years.

Hillary Clinton’s top campaign aide, and the woman who might be the future White House chief of staff to the first female US president, for a decade edited a radical Muslim publication that opposed women’s rights and blamed the US for 9/11.

One of Clinton’s biggest accomplishments listed on her campaign website is her support for the UN women’s conference in Bejing in 1995, when she famously declared, “Women’s rights are human rights.” Her speech has emerged as a focal point of her campaign, featured prominently in last month’s Morgan Freeman-narrated convention video introducing her as the Democratic nominee.

However, soon after that “historic and transformational” 1995 event, as Clinton recently described it, her top aide Huma Abedin published articles in a Saudi journal taking Clinton’s feminist platform apart, piece by piece. At the time, Abedin was assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs working under her mother, who remains editor-in-chief. She was also working in the White House as an intern for then-first lady Clinton.

Headlined “Women’s Rights Are Islamic Rights,” a 1996 article argues that single moms, working moms and gay couples with children should not be recognized as families. It also states that more revealing dress ushered in by women’s liberation “directly translates into unwanted results of sexual promiscuity and irresponsibility and indirectly promote violence against women.” In other words, sexually liberated women are just asking to be raped.

Sweet.  If any, ANY Republican’s wife or mother or husband was involved in this the New York Times would literally explode in a huge fireball. But…still waiting.

For the elites, moral relativism and failing to make judgements on others makes these kind of Faustian deals possible. But to the rest of America, this stinks.  We know it, feel it, sense it. And nobody can tell us different.

Truthfully, before studying Huma’s background, or studying Islam, the Arab culture and all of the intricate deceptions both offer, I was suspect of Huma.  Why?  I applied the simple question- “What this woman doing with this man?” when seeing Huma and Anthony Weiner together.  Remember, Weiner was Senator Charles Schumer’s heir apparent.  His rise to the Senate was a great vehicle for Huma, as is being HRC’s BFF.  It was a two-fer for the Muslim Brotherhood!

Seriously, THIS GUY

Gets THIS GIRL

And nobody thinks “hmmmm…?”

The sacrifices one makes for Islamic world dominance.

And Timberlake and Jessica jump right in.  (seriously, just sing and act. While you still can. Because in Huma’s world, Jessica would be stoned to death.)

Have they no ethics or concern for their kids? Do they read? See?

Venezuela move to country where the food is! Sam Kinison would be proud.

Venezuela is over, at least until the military junta kills their President and gets control of the nation.  And of course, blame the CIA for doing it, thus filling the next generation’s university text books with conspiracy dribble..but I digress. (No, seriously, if ONLY the CIA were that good!)

But until then, the people of Venezuela have decided to vote their faith in their socialistic society by using the age old method of walking out.

The Financial Times has a story today on something that I assumed must be happening in Venezuela but which I haven’t seen widely reported. The downward spiral of the economy is so bad that Venezuelans are now fleeing the country semi-permanently:

Since fleeing to Bogotá, Eduardo, who declined to give his name as he is still an illegal immigrant, says he has been working “on this and that while a friend helps me out. At least I can find food here. Back in Venezuela we all lacked anything to eat”…

“Most Venezuelan families these days hope a member leaves, somewhere, in order to send money back,” the man adds. He is echoed by a Venezuelan accountant who entered Colombia this weekend and is determined to stay even if “I have to stand at a corner all day selling arepas”, a maize staple in both nations.

According to a senior Colombian immigration official, that is now the trend: “The number of Venezuelans crossing into Colombia, legally or illegally, has grown a lot.”

Sam Kinison said it best.  Go where the food is.

Understanding the European/America elite confusion over Islam being a motivator of death.

It’s a simple meme, but outstandingly accurate.  From Gatewaypundit’s comment section.

So much for being post racial…. Obama sees everything in color.

You wait to see if he gets it by the end of his first term, then you realize you are the idiot, because you didn’t get it.  The first “post racial” President sees only through a color prism.

In Louisiana the place is flooded out. People are ruined.  Houses destroyed.  Citizens are helping citizens of all colors.  Donald Trump goes down there and I think maybe for the first time realizes what it is like to be devastated.  He sees it on TV, but not like what he saw in person.  Good for him.

However, Obama is golfing.  I kid you not.  And his vacation comes first.  He doesn’t care about the people of Louisiana because he can’t care- he’s a narcissist in the greatest order.  His excuse is he would screw up the rescue efforts if he showed up.  In truth, showing up would screw up his dinner and golf plans.  Yet, he does manage to do something.  He reminds the people of Louisiana that they had better not be racist, like the assumption is they would be. “Y’know those southern crackers…” 

President Obama has refused so far to survey the Louisiana flood disaster, but he did let state and local officials know that he’s watching to make sure they don’t engage in racial discrimination.

In a 16-page guidance issued Tuesday, the Obama administration, led by the Justice Department, warned Louisiana recipients of federal disaster assistance against engaging in “unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin (including limited English proficiency).”

The guidance’s frameworks “highlight the importance of complying with nondiscrimination requirements of civil rights statutes, addressing the needs of the whole community, and ensuring equal opportunity to access recovery efforts.”

Needless to say, some Louisiana residents were offended, including the American Conservative’s Rod Dreher, who took umbrage at receiving an anti-discrimination lecture from Washington, D.C., as locals struggle to rescue, house and feed their neighbors.

“[E]verywhere you look you can find black folks and white folks loving on each other, helping each other through this crisis,” Mr. Dreher said in a Thursday post.

He referred to the guidance as a “long bureaucratic memo” issued by the “Department of Justice and many other agencies of the executive branch overseen by He Who Cannot Be Troubled to Leave Martha’s Vineyard.”

Natural disasters do not discriminate.  As a Southerner, I can tell you we don’t care about race like Obama sees it.  If you are drowning, I’m going to get you regardless of your color or race or gender or orientation. That’s because you are a drowning human, and Southerners don’t let that happen.   I can’t speak for the people in the Hamptons, they may very well let the “lesser” people drown.  But not here.  Below is a video capture of men saving a woman and her dog.  You can tell the men are white, the woman is maybe Asian, the dog is a dog.  The men risked their lives getting her and the dog to safety.

Saving HUMAN and canine lives. Southerners are far better than Hamptonites.

Here’s the actual video. It ends with stills of the devastation.

Back when New Orleans flooded Obama complained about Bush’s response.  Now Obama literally emailing and phoning it in from a golf course?  The balls on the guy, and not just the dimpled ones in his golf pants either.

You can tell he’s done with the aggravation of being President.  If he were a regular government employee, you know he would add up his vacation time and leave early- if HRC was replacing him…and he had any vacation time built up.  But that guy is ALWAYS on vacation.

More pics.

Just us…Bill Whittle’s bleak summation

Worth watching.  Just not encouraging. To push HRC across the finish line, far too many people have compromised, or revealed their lack of, ethics.

It’s like live streaming “The Omen” movie. George Soros and family are exposed.

Everybody has an agenda.  For decades Soros’ agenda has been to create chaos. Because out of chaos and instability comes opportunity- if you think like Soros and his family do.  Now he’s rich- rich, maybe thirty billion or so rich.  So it’s not about the money, it is about the power and control.  His history indicates he has no moral compass, even worse than say his little buddy HRC.  Whom he apparently advises.

During her time as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton received foreign policy advice from none other than liberal billionaire George Soros, according to newly released emails from WikiLeaks.

In one email with the subject line “Unrest in Albania” sent to Clinton on Jan. 24, 2011, State Department official Jake Sullivan gave Clinton an “FYI” about Soros’ message, which former assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs Richard Verma indicated had been sent “through other channels as well.”

In the message, Soros informed the nation’s top diplomat at the time that “two things need to be done urgently” related to the situation in Albania. He wrote that the violence there was likely in reaction to how parliamentary elections were handled two years earlier. He then warned that the country could be slipping into “anarchy,” something not seen in Albania since 1997.

“There are signs that [Prime Minister] Edi Rama’s control of his own people is slipping, which may lead to further violence. The US and the EU must work in complete harmony over this, but given Albania’s European aspirations the EU must take the lead,” Soros advocated.

Soros then provided the names of three people he suggested be appointed as “mediator,” one of whom was eventually tapped for the job.

Just last month, Politico reported that Soros donated $25 million to helping the Democrats’ re-election efforts, including the former secretary’s bid for the presidency against Republican billionaire Donald Trump.

I’m sure he meets with and talks with and funds any number of globalist types like Obama and HRC and Kerry, et. al.  That’s his thing. Because nations without borders by definition have no functional government, which allows for the creation of one central government.  I know, conspiracy stuff…but if the crazy shoe fits….

Influencing outcomes across the globe to better mankind is one thing. To do it to make money and disrupt lives is quite another.  Disrupting or destroying doesn’t seem to bother Soros, his bio is one of great talent within a man who just makes you go “yuck.” He also meddles in the politics of nations- frankly that’s enough to end most people’s power- but not him, because his friends are our leaders.

Left-wing billionaire George Soros’ non-profit network, the Open Society Foundations (OSF), is confident about the future success of its work in the field of immigration activism and may embark on a massive campaign on immigration issues in the near future.

That’s according to a candid 62-page document reviewing OSF’s work on immigration reform discussed in May at the group’s board meeting in Montgomery, Ala.

The document, which is one of 2,500 stolen from OSF in a massive hack and released over the weekend, shows that the Soros group believes that its $7.7 million investment in groups pushing for immigration reform was responsible for the passage of the Senate’s 2013 comprehensive immigration reform bill.

“Although [comprehensive immigration reform] was not achieved, winning the Senate with such a large, bipartisan majority was a partial victory and further than the movement had gotten in recent decades, and, as a result of the effort, the immigrant rights movement infrastructure matured and ultimately emerged stronger, more coordinated, and more cohesive,” reads the document, which includes a presentation from Ivy O. Suriyopas, a program officer with OSF’s U.S. Programs.

In it, Suriyopas conducted an analysis of OSF’s spending on the immigration reform campaign to determine whether it was worth it. While she pointed to numerous shortcomings, she said she believed that the money and time pushing for comprehensive immigration reform was worth the investment.

After an attempt at comprehensive immigration reform failed in 2007, OSF began investing heavily in a campaign “to enable the field to create the necessary conditions to security [comprehensive immigration reform] within five years.”

To achieve that goal, the Soros network’s U.S. Programs Advisory Board authorized the creation of the Immigration Innovation Fund. Soros committed $15 million over the course of three years to fund the initiative.

Spotting an opportunity in the wake of President Obama’s first amnesty executive action — Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which was announced in June 2012 — OSF mobilized to form a coalition of activist groups and labor unions operating under the name Alliance for Citizenship (A4C).

OSF gave A4C $4.7 million through April 2014 to act as a coordinating cody and a “conduit for pass-through funding.” Soros’ groups spent $7.725 million in all in 2013 to support immigration reform.

According to Suriyopas, that spending was integral to getting immigration reform passed in the Senate.

“OSPC’s significant investment in CIR, and A4C specifically, led to the passage of a historic bipartisan bill through the Senate,” the document reads.

“While the compromise bill was imperfect, the alignment between the immigration groups, the Administration, and historically adversarial groups (including business, faith, and labor) was maintained throughout the process of securing the Senate bill.”

According to the meeting documents, A4C’s objective was to develop a “coordinated national campaign, strengthen and align the progressive movement around immigration reform as well as coordinate with nontraditional allies (e.g. faith-based groups, business interests, law enforcement), recruit additional advocates, lobby key members of the Senate, and influence development of the legislation.”

Suriyopas pointed to one tweak that OSF made in its 2013 initiative versus the 2007 immigration push.

The new coalition “intentionally included” SEIU, the U.S.’s largest union for service industry workers, on one of its working groups in order to “avoid a fracturing of labor from the coalition.”

You would think Americans could seize on the list of the “gang of eight” and run them out of town like the traitors they are.  They were involved with Soros- willingly.  Which is like donning a horned mask and a red cape and drinking blood at a Satanic ritual!

His kids aren’t much better, a couple have not fallen far from the tree, especially this one.

Remember, they aren’t doing it for the betterment of mankind. Diluting first world powers by forcing the immigration of people who cannot or will not assimilate is not a good thing, neither is trying to destroy those who are warning us of the threat, but it will create chaos- and out of that comes opportunity for more power for Soros.

George Soros has HRC on speed dial.  He does not have Trump’s number.  This alone- along with the Supreme Court picks- puts Trump ahead of HRC in my mind.  I’m no Trump fan, but a Soros/Alinski acolyte like HRC is a dangerous pick for President.

Cutting to the meat on the “robbery” of the US swimmers. Both sides wrong. One side illegal.

A radio host noted what I saw.  That the US media is so hellbent on finding fault with America they are EAGER to throw four drunken idiot USA swimmers under the bus.   Even at Fox they call this an “ugly American” moment.  Now that is RICH!

Let me cut to the chase. This event was probably going to go into the ether of the world where great Olympic stories athletes told to each other.  “Hey, remember the time when…” stuff.  But somehow it gets out and the media, who had been hammering Rio and the Olympics endlessly on stories of corruption, bad construction, contaminated water, etc. suddenly gets all worked up over the fact that the swimmers, all drunk as cooter brown, tell a somewhat distorted version of their drunken stupidity and subsequent robbery.

The outrage in the crime capital of the world, Rio, is the typical Latino impulsive response, they are insulted because of the ugly Americans making the charge that turned out to be false.  Except, it isn’t. They were in fact, under American law, robbed.  They also may have committed vandalism and public drunkenness if that is in fact a crime in Rio.  We don’t know because unlike here in America, in Rio they don’t have a thing called “due process” – where the suspect is arrested, has a trial, found guilty and forced to pay restitution by the courts. Nope, in Rio, you get a security guard illegally detaining you, pulling a gun, and demanding you give him money for the “damage”.  Of course the money you hand over FAR exceeds any repair costs- because you are being robbed and that is how that works.  Lochte points that out.

US Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, who had falsely claimed he and three teammates were robbed in Rio, apologized Friday for his behavior, saying he should have been “more careful and candid” in explaining what happened.

“I should have been much more responsible in how I handled myself and for that am sorry to my teammates, my fans, my fellow competitors, my sponsors and the hosts of this great event,” Lochte said in a statement carried on Twitter and Instagram.

Lochte is still sticking to one element of his original story — that he and his friends were robbed at gunpoint:

“It’s traumatic to be out late with your friends in a foreign country — with a language barrier — and have a stranger point a gun at you and demand money to let you leave,” he said.

That makes this the kind of non-apology apology one normally sees in politics, but Lochte may have a point. The video evidence and later statements by the police in Rio corroborates his claim that they were held at gunpoint, not by the police but by security guards. The guards only let them go after they paid for the damage. As Allahpundit argued yesterday, that certainly might feel like a hold-up … as long as you conveniently leave out all the damage to the property and the argument that preceded it.

But if Lochte and his pals felt like they’d been held up, why not wait for the police to arrive and hash it out that way? That would be especially true if the amount of cash was $400 rather than the $50 Rio police claim changed hands. Their status as Olympic athletes would have given them some leverage with a city that wanted to make everything look as smooth as possible (although an intoxicated group might not have realized that advantage). Telling everyone they’d been held up without explaining the context also makes it look as though they knew then — and still know now — that it wasn’t a stick-up. A “stranger” didn’t just randomly “point a gun at you and demand money to let you leave,” an argument Lochte makes again without an explicit acknowledgment of the context. Sounds like an implicit recognition that his rationalization doesn’t hold water, if you’ll pardon the pun.

Here is where I get off the “They deserved it” train and frankly  I am embarrassed- once again- by our globalist leaning media.  The “offended” people in Rio get a judge to sign an order to FORCE an illegal detention of our citizens, pull them off a plane, hold them in detention, put them in court, threaten them with jail, and then say “But if you give a ‘contribution’ to a charity of 11,000 us dollars, I’ll let you go.”  Which by the way, in America, is extortion.  No trial, no witnesses, no evidence produced, no opportunity for a jury to look at the case, just an overt threat.   Wooo whooo!  Let’s just show the world how corrupt the system really is.

For a small fee can leave. Or as they say in the Rio system of justice “Badges? We don’t need no stinking badges!”

Oh BTW, a real journalist would ask the judge exactly what “charity” he deems proper. The “pay my cousin, Julio, charity”?

From the LA Times- aka hating America- paper. Note the comment by the Brazilian.

At some point, a gas station security guard drew his weapon to stop the swimmers from fleeing, police said. In the video, one of the four can be seen briefly raising his hands.

“We have no evidence to believe that there was any excess use of the weapon,” Veloso said, adding that the guard was an employee of the Brazilian government authorized to be armed.

Images from another camera next showed the swimmers in a different area of the gas station. One had fallen onto his back and was helped up by a teammate. The four sat on a curb and could be seen in animated conversation with a person out of view of the camera.

The swimmers eventually stood up and left after paying for the damages.

The incident has captivated and angered residents of this oceanside metropolis.

2016 Summer Olympics live coverage: Rio police say two swimmers admit Ryan Lochte’s account of gunpoint robbery was false »

“They owe an apology, not only to the police, but all of Brazil,” said Maria Jose Rocha, an 87-year-old retired lawyer who lives near the police station where Bentz and Conger gave their statements Thursday. “They disrespected us and underestimated our justice system.”

Justice system?…. Underestimated?…Where it’s okay to hold suspects at gunpoint and demand money?  Where a judge, before a trial, demands money?   If this happened here, the security guard, the police who didn’t arrest the security guard, and the judge would all be arrested or fired or jailed, their careers ruined.

In Rio they have a different standard. They look the other way at the out of control crime in their nation- and blame drunken idiots for exposing it. Here’s a taste of Rio’s daily life.

I’d have more sympathy for the Brazilian people if their cops spent more time stopping this than screwing with- and robbing- US swimmers, no matter how stupid they are.
