Should it Really be Called the Clinton Crime Foundation?

The Democrats will say that any negative words or comments about the Clinton Foundation is nothing but a “vast right-wing conspiracy” to denigrate the Clinton's and to work against the presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton, no ifs, ands, or buts.

It's true, if you watch the liberal T.V. stations (most all except Fox News) or read the mostly liberal press (the N.Y. Post and the Wall St. Journal are exceptions), you will find that the coverage of the Clinton Foundation and the donations that have flowed into it from various nefarious countries and characters, are very short and sweet (i.e. all to be forgiven). Although both liberal publications, the N.Y. Times and the Wash. Post, have run stories about some of the shady deals attributed to the Clinton's and the Clinton Foundation, the in-depth reporting has been very shallow up until now. Compared to the coverage that Pres. Nixon and George W. Bush faced during their presidencies, the coverage of the Clinton's has been pitifully light in comparison.

The recent book by author Peter Schweizer, that has reached the N.Y. Times best-seller list, listed many areas where the Clinton's allegedly used their prestige and power to make deals that enriched themselves, their cronies, and their foundation for well over $150 million. Can you imagine the outrage if some Republican couple were able to amass that sizable fortune in the small amount of time that it took the Clinton's ? The Clinton idolaters and apologists slough off these allegations as nothing but a continuation of the hatred of the Clinton's by the Republicans and the right- wingers. They claim there is “no smoking gun” and that the Clinton's and their foundation are beyond reproach. They seem to be blinded to the facts by their liberal ideology.

The heavily researched book by Peter Schweizer, points out the many “coincidences” that public policy and individual financial aggrandizement, benefiting the Clinton's, that took place while Hillary Clinton was a senator and while she was Secretary of State, and is now the overwhelming choice to become the Democrat nominee for president in 2016. The Clinton's, both being lawyers (even though Bill Clinton has been disbarred), know the ins and outs of being able to skirt the law and to hide their activities from scrutiny. They have been doing that for the past 30 years, ever since they got involved in politics. So far, it has worked out real well for them.

What bout those charges that Peter Schweizer has laid out in his book, titled “Clinton Cash” (subtitle, “The untold story of how and why foreign governments and businesses helped make Bill and Hillary rich)? Just last year alone, the Clinton's made $25 million in speaking fees. What did the Clinton's have offer those companies, institutions, and individuals, that a one-hour speech, by either one, was worth between $250,000 and $750,000? It boggles the mind that anyone paying that kind of money didn't expect something in return now or in the future. In addition, the money that flowed into the Clinton Foundation didn't just come from countries with good relations with the United States, but countries and individuals from countries like Saudi Arabia, the Arab Emirates, Algeria, Kazakhstan, India, and other nefarious shady characters and dictators from other obscure countries. It seems that whenever Bill Clinton made an appearance, that within hours or days of the speech or meeting, an important business deal was consummated, enriching one of his cronies and/or the country involved, and an ensuing donation was made to the Clinton Foundation. This type of activity has gone on for years, and yet the Clinton's have not been brought to task or questioned about these activities until this book came out pointing out all the instances and coincidences that these two, once “poor couple”, as Hillary called themselves after they left the White House, were able to amass this sizable fortune with very little work except their positions in life, as ex-president of the U.S. and founder of the Clinton Foundation, U.S. Senator, and U.S. Secretary of State.

All these deals that they have been associated with just don't pass the smell test. People, countries, and businesses just don't donate money out of the goodness of their heart, something more tangible must have been involved to explain this largesse to the Clinton's and to the Clinton Foundation.

From all that I have read or heard about Hillary and her husband Bill (he didn't get the nickname “Slick Willie” for nothing), I have concluded that the “Clinton Foundation” should change it's name to the “Clinton Crime Foundation”, and to think that Hillary might become our next president. Heaven help us and the U.S.A.

She is unprincipled just like slick willie but not nearly as good a politician. We need to keep the spotlight on this carpetbagger so that when the election comes no one can say they don't know much about Hillary Clinton. She is a horrible person as as much as she is an incompetent politician.

All you have to do is search online for "THE CLINTON BODY BAGS". It can't be a coincidence. This Hillary person should not be anywhere near the White House.

I guess Hillary wants to get back to the White House because she forgot to take some items they forgot to take when they left the last time? How can anybody think of voting for her just because she is a woman, with that mindset, Nurse Ratchit would win the hearts of the Democrat voters because she's a woman. Competence not gender should be the utmost consideration. We don't need another Saul Alinsky acolyte in the White House.
