I won’t go into a huge background, we all know what happened. In a nutshell, this is the Clinton Foundation.
Truth is the claim of only 15% going to charity is not correct. It is less than six percent. Worse, all that money that is given to charity is actually funneled through another set of payoffs, which is why the Haitians and others are screaming “where’s the money?!”
Look, this is all about making and keeping money, influence and power. Clinton’s realized early on in Arkansas that if you have power, people will pay to get influence. But these two make Edwin Edwards from Louisiana, the most corrupt governor in its history, look like an amateur. Edwards is famous for making more than a few memorable quotes, showing his lack of regard for the voting public, much like Hillary does today.
1983: “The only way I can lose this election is if I’m caught in bed with either a dead girl or a live boy.” (He won!)
Edwards’ charm and wit were once again in full swing. When asked if he had anything in common with Duke, Edwards replied, “The only thing we have in common is that we both have been wizards beneath the sheets.” His campaign released popular bumper stickers like “Vote for the Crook. It’s important.” And poked fun at his serpentine reputation from the 1987 campaign (“Slay the Dragon”), with “Vote for the Lizard, not the Wizard.” bumper stickers. That’s the kind of chutzpah Edwards had; to turn his own ubiquitous corruption into a running gagline and marginalize its importance. In the end, Edwards did much better than Johnson, defeating Duke 61-39.
It was common knowledge back then if you wanted an audience with Edwards, you had better be holding ten grand in cash in your left hand as you shook his right.
But he was a small time operator compared to the Clintons. Ron Fournier has had it with them. Fournier appears to be the last standing liberal with enough of an ethical spine to get a bad taste in his mouth over the Clinton scandals.
Hillary Clinton doesn’t play by the rules.
That’s not a partisan attack. It’s not a talking point. It’s not a fantasy. It’s a fact—an agonizing truth to people like me who admire Clinton and her husband, who remember how Bill Clinton rose from a backwater governorship to the presidency on a simple promise: He would fight for people who “work hard and play by the rules.”
The evidence is overwhelming and metastasizing: To co-opt a William Safire line, Hillary Clinton is a congenital rule-breaker.
Oh, it is much, much worse. Fournier is having trouble swallowing now, wait until the details of the scams come out. For example, John Podesta’s role in the Uranium One sale of American uranium mines to the Russians. Yeah, I didn’t stutter. Russians own fifty percent of our uranium…. (can’t make it up).
But, Fournier, even after literally upchucking his lunch says this,
It’s past time Clinton come clean. Return the foreign donations. Hand over the email server. Embrace an independent investigation that answers the questions and tempers the doubts caused by her actions. Repeat: Her actions.
This is not the fault of a vast right-wing conspiracy, sexism, or unfair media coverage. It’s the result of actions taken by an experienced and important public servant whose better angels are often outrun by her demons—paranoia, greed, entitlement, and an ends-justify-the-means sense of righteousness.
Can she still be president? Absolutely.
Even if she continues to duck and dissemble? Perhaps. But only because somebody has to win—and the GOP might nominate a candidate even less trustworthy.
But why be president, if only by default?
Clinton should rather be totally honest and transparent, true to her word, and a credible force for restoring trust in our politics.
What…the…F**K??! Let’s see, Ron still thinks America would elect a person who lives by these rules? Let me repeat them —It’s the result of actions taken by an experienced and important public servant whose better angels are often outrun by her demons—paranoia, greed, entitlement, and an ends-justify-the-means sense of righteousness.
Do we want to elect a female version of Stalin or Nixon on steroids or Mao INTO the White House? Greedy, paranoid, entitled, ends justify the means??? Seriously??
He cannot seriously think Hillary can somehow stop being Hillary, just like Bill is still Bill.
Bill Clinton’s mistress has been nicknamed ‘Energizer’ by his security staff, a new book alleges.
Richard JoRonald Kessler’s ‘The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of Presidents,’ excerpts of which were obtained by the New York Post‘s Richard Johnson, makes the claim.
One excerpt includes a quote from a source that revealed ‘Energizer’ has no problem getting inside the Clintons’ Chappaqua, New York home.
‘You don’t stop her, you don’t approach her, you just let her go in,’ the source said.
The former president’s other woman has ‘very perky’ augmented breasts, another source alleged in quotes shared by the newspaper.
‘It was a warm day, and she was wearing a low-cut tank top, and as she leaned over, her breasts were very exposed,’ the security source said of the mysterious mistress. ‘They appeared to be very perky and very new and full… There was no doubt in my mind they were enhanced.’
Though information on Clinton’s alleged ladylove is scant, the newspaper reported she is blond and gave cookies to the Secret Service.
Sweet. A mistress that can bake…
Fournier must believe the voters and the system is set up in a manner that no matter how bad Hillary turns out to be, she gets in. Sure, 32% will vote for her. Hollywood will still support her (and argument for a no drug policy if I’ve ever seen one!) Philly will have precincts voting over a hundred percent for her- just like they did for Obama. Sure she’ll get the core and the money.
But the truth is, she sucks. Unlike Edwards, she is ALL greed and entitlement with no southern charm. In fact, there are reports stating democrats nervous and some donors to the Foundation are bailing out. Remember this was working up until they got exposed. None of those “donors” did it for the right reason, they wanted access. But instead of bringing ten thousand in cash like back in Edward’s day, they had to pony up tens of millions.
Like I said, the Clintons make every other corrupt politician look like children in a playground.
But who wants that? Or this for four or eight years more?
