Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies is a book written by conservative author Michelle Malkin. But the term “Culture of Corruption” can go back as far as politics has existed.
But we’re talking about the Clinton’s now, specifically Bill and Hillary. How did Bill get the nicknames “Slick Willie” or “Three Dollar Bill”? This wasn’t an accident. Hillary had a host of scandals as First Lady including “Travelgate,” “Whitewater,” “Filegate,” and the “Hillary Rodham Cattle Futures Controversy.” Let’s not forget the mysterious “suicide” of Vince Foster, a friend and law partner to Ms. Clinton.
Then of course we have Bill and Monica Lewinsky and subsequent impeachment for lying under oath and disbarment. Hillary, always loyal to Bill and collective power blamed it all on a “Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy.”
I suppose all those sexual misconduct allegations were just white noise. All the lady’s involved conspired to lie about Bill and his sexual desires. Let’s see, we have Paul Jones, Gennifer Flowers, Kathleen Wiley, Juanita Broaddrick, Elizabeth Ward Gracen, Dolly Kyle Browning, not to mention Monica Lewinsky.
Ronald Reagan was called the “Teflon President” concerning arms sales and mafia boss John Gotti also earned the moniker. But who resembles the non-stick coating of Teflon better than Bill and Hillary Clinton? I used the word “alleged” but so many claims and most of them merely went away. So many investigations and no criminal charges to Bill and Hillary overall but some associates went to prison or were humiliated by a press in the tank for Clinton Inc.
Oh, and did I not mention dereliction of duty as Secretary of State involving Benghazi? There is much more out there on this corrupt power couple but let’s stick to the big ones.
This all leads me to the recent NY Times story concerning the Clinton Foundation, soon to be renamed the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. They may rethink that if this story goes beyond a one day news cycle. Of course, although the liberal Gray Lady splashed a huge controversy on a couple they have long protected, will anything come of the deficits being run by a non-profit foundation that has collected millions of dollars ($492M), which is run by Clinton confidantes and mismanaged to the tune of at least $43 million?
Bill and Hillary intend to move their foundation offices to Manhattan so more money will be going down the drain for this “non-profit” money laundering scheme. It’s been said this move will serve as a “launching pad into 2016” for Hillary. What is she “launching?”
“I think having a place such as this for a platform gives her a great launching pad into 2016,” said former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs. “It gives her, quite frankly, a great place with which to create or begin to create the message she would use should she decide to run.”
Decide to run? Does anyone think the Clinton’s don’t want a return to the White House? Does anyone think that Hillary Clinton doesn’t believe she deserves to be POTUS? It’s what these people live for.
There is supposedly an “internal review” going on at the foundation being led by daughter Chelsea Clinton. She has “become increasingly concerned” that some overseers were negatively impacting the non-profit. This is code for “it’s time to start producing fall guys and people to blame.”
The NY Times says this:
For all of its successes, the Clinton Foundation had become a sprawling concern, supervised by a rotating board of old Clinton hands, vulnerable to distraction and threatened by conflicts of interest. It ran multimillion-dollar deficits for several years, despite vast amounts of money flowing in.
. . . efforts to insulate the foundation from potential conflicts have highlighted just how difficult it can be to disentangle the Clintons’ charity work from Mr Clinton’s moneymaking ventures and Mrs Clinton’s political future.
What will this do to the political future of Hillary. I doubt anything, they all have a way of beating scandals and surviving their way to the top. But since the focus is on the future, what about foreign donations to US presidential politics. It was a big deal swept under the carpet for Obama in two elections.
A nexus between Clinton Foundation donors, foreign governments, and corporate interests has long been a concern to government watchdog groups. As of 2008, the Clinton Foundation raised at least $46 million from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei, Oman, and other foreign governments—the very governments Secretary of State Hillary Clinton eventually negotiated with. Wealthy foreign investors, like Saudi businessman Nasser Al-Rashid and Indian politician Amar Singh gave at least $1 million each.
The NY Times says that cronyism and conflicts have reached critical mass. I presume the coverup is about to begin in earnest. It’s what the Clinton’s do best.
