People Who Live in Glass Houses..........!

The famous expression is: “People who live in glass houses should not throw stones”, which means don't criticize other people when you yourself have faults and weaknesses of your own.

So it is with Hillary Clinton. She's been blasting Donald Trump for his involvement in Trump University (not a real university, but a real estate seminar organization) as being a “scam” operation, but, upon closer inspection, she, and mainly her husband, have been involved in a much larger “university” operation called the “Laureate Education University”, with main headquarters in Baltimore, Md., with most of its operations in Central and South America and in Europe. What is the involvement of the Clinton's in this university, which some have called a real “scam operation”? Let's see.

Well, in 2010, Bill Clinton was named Honorary Chancellor of Laureate Education University, a failing “For Profit” university that needed some “street cred”, and they found it in the person of Bill Clinton, former U.S. president, and husband of the then U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. And they made it financially rewarding for him and the Clinton Foundation through speaking fees and donations.

From 2010 to 2015, when Bill Clinton severed ties to Laureate, as his wife announced for president, he made $16.46 million during his tenure as honorary chancellor of Laureate University. During this time, as Hillary headed up the State Department, the State Department pumped at least $55 million to a group run by Laureate founder and chairman, Douglas Becker, who had strong ties to the Clinton Global Initiative (a/k/a the Clinton Foundation). Becker, in addition to running Laureate, is also the chairman of the International Youth Foundation (IYF). This is a non-profit sister organization (whose offices are less than a mile from Laureate in Baltimore). Another prominent investor in this group is the nefarious Progressive billionaire, George Soros, a multimillion dollar contributor to the Democrats. Can you see a tie-in emerging in this narrative? All these facts have been reported and verified by the Bloomberg News Bureau.

The Laureate Education University's business practices have faced serious legal scrutiny and criminal investigations in Mexico, Chile, and Turkey, where Laureate operates, as “for-profit” universities are actually illegal in those countries. Bill's main job, as honorary chancellor, included speaking at a half dozen or so Laureate schools every year, mainly trying to drum up business for the school using his name and persona as proof of legitimacy for the school. Many informed sources claim that Laureate University is a real scam operation that makes Trump University look small in comparison.

The questions arising from the Clinton's involvement are profound and if a “quid pro quo” can be attached to their actions, this will be another scandal in the Clinton “crime” portfolio . Questions arise as to how come Bill Clinton was paid so much to be a “figurehead” for Laureate and to give speeches for the school, and why was U.S. funds O.K.'d by the State Department that went to the principals of Laureate University, and its sister group the IYF, with the approval of Hillary Clinton? Something smells rotten in Denmark, don't you think?

This is just another, among many, example of the “sleazy” dealings of the Clinton's and why they have become so extremely wealthy in such a short period of time after leaving the White House, when they claimed to be broke. Does the word “grifters” come to mind when trying to explain their motives and actions? Imagine a person who personifies greed and sleaze, like Hillary Clinton, becoming our next president, heaven forbid?

So. when Hillary rants on about Trump University, she should remember the saying, “People who live in glass houses should not throw stones” as it will surely come back to bite them in the butt big time.

I wonder whether the investigation into the dealings of Hillary, while Secretary of State, and the monies paid to Laureate University and its sister organization through the State Department, and the speaking fees paid to Bill Clinton, will pass muster or has the fix already have been made. I guess we'll have to wait for the F.B.I. investigation to be concluded, and then see what the Obama Administration will do.

How did the Clinton's get so rich in such a short period of time? Did they produce a product that everyone needed, did they sell a innovative service that helped other people better their lives, or did they just sell access to the inner workings of government? The word "grifters" (which Chuck called them awhile back) certainly describes them to a tee. Their so-called philanthropic foundation (the Clinton Foundation) is nothing more than a money laundering operation to benefit the Clinton's and their cronies. What words of wisdom did they impart to be able to get between $250,000 and $800,000 a speech before financial institutions and foreign countries and foreign individuals, some of which are not our best friends? They surely should be called the "King and Queen of Sleaze" and the liberal Democrats idolize them no matter what they say or do. How sad that we have sunk so low?

How can you tell if Hillary is lying......her lips are moving. How can supposedly intelligent people (i.e, self-described liberals)vote for someone who constantly lies over practically everything? Can you imagine her trying to convince the Congress and foreign dignitaries that what she's saying is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? And these libs want her to to be our Commander-in-Chief? Now you know why sane people consider liberalism to be a mental disorder.
