The New York Times takes down
the Clinton Foundation. This could be
devastating for Bill and Hillary

Telegraph (U.K.), by Tim Stanley

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 8/14/2013 12:46:56 PM

Is the New York Times being guest edited by Rush Limbaugh? Today it runs with a fascinating takedown of the Clinton Foundation – that vast vanity project that conservatives are wary of criticising for being seen to attack a body that tries to do good. But the liberal NYT has no such scruples. The killer quote is 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

The Clinton Foundation is what it has always been--a scam to funnel money to the Clintons lifestyle tax free. Only little people pay taxes.

I ran across teasers for this story at several sites and was trying to find it to post. While I was writing to the Staff to ask them why I couldn´t find it, the Staff already solved the mystery.

FTA The reality is that this is a man who – in May 1993 – prevented other planes from landing at LAX for 90 minues while he got a haircut from a Beverley Hills hairdresser aboard Air Force One. The Clintons are populists in the same way that Barack Obama is a Nobel prize winner. Oh, wait…"
Liberal hypocrisy on display- the über rich and their deliberately impoverished, illiterate and illegal supporters.
Why did the Bushes rehabilitate Bill after he left in disgrace and enable the Clinton´s to maintain power and money?
Who is Bills real daddy?

1. Bears and woods; Popes going to Mass; crooks are crooked -- what amazing new discoveries we are making!

2. "What Difference Does It Make?"

If Hillary wins in 2016, G-d forbid, US gov´t license plates will have that slogan, like states have their slogans.

3. FTA: the Clinton Foundation [is] a sprawling concern, supervised by a rotating board of old Clinton hands, vulnerable to distraction and threatened by conflicts of interest.

3a. Of course they hire accompl-- I mean, "cronies" [ahem]. You don´t hire for competence unless you are trying to be objectively productive.
3b. One man´s "distraction" or "conflict of interest" is another man´s raison d´etre.

4. FTA: how corporations invest in politicians as a way of building their brand and raising their stock price.

I disagree. Honest corporations spend on pols as a defense against competitors who own other pols, and against predatory regulations. Crooked corps do so for crooked reasons.

5. Even with the plastic surgery, Chelsea still doesn´t look like Bill or Hill, but some... other... person. No name comes to mind.

6. FTA: Over a year ago Bill Clinton met with some aides and lawyers to review the Foundation´s progress and concluded that it was a mess.

Gotta be organized! Otherwise, how to know if you´re getting the maximum skim, and that you´ll look "legit enough" to provide excuses to friendly "regulators" and "investigative journalists"?

I vividly remember when this Foundation raised money for the devastated Island of Haiti...over 10 years ago. People gave generously multi-millions of dollars. To this day very little has been rebuilt, the people still live in devastating poverty with little hope. But there are bulging pockets somewhere!

Old friends on board. Are they the same ones who made exorbitant amounts of money off Freddie and Fannie?

Anyone who believes there isn´t corruption inside this foundation is a fool.

The media loves to play up the war inside the Republican party but there are powerful Democrats who have never wanted the Clintons to be the face of their party. That´s why she didn´t get the nomination in 2008. The don´t want her in 2016, either.

It is over three years until election day, 2016. The NYT is purposely airing this story so that it will be ´old news´ when the campaign heats up. This is SOP for the leftist media.

Hillary & Huma will run in 2016...and probably win, ´cause I don´t see the electorate becoming any less ignorant between now and then.

This is a story for this week only. It will be covered up quicker than you can even figure it out. It is just like the Obama scandals, just a short blimp on the screen for a very short time. Haven´t you learned that the low information voters and people who don´t even know who the vice president is, don´t pay any attention to this and they are the ones who are running this country now.

Many are more interested in excoriating rodeo clowns for unPC jokes about a sitting public and therefore not exempt public figure.

Perhaps this is the Clinton/media way of clearing the dirty decks. On the other hand, perhaps there are powers at work in Liberal Land that want someone other than Hillary Clinton as POTUS -- figuring she is damaged gooda or past her sell-by date.

WASHINGTON — The mysterious American plane that landed at an airport in Tehran belongs to an overseas client, the bank that acts as a trustee for the plane confirmed on Friday. Scott Nielsen, an executive at the Bank of Utah, which according to FAA databases owns the plane, said that the executives had been trying to reach the real owners but “This is an overseas customer and they don’t operate under the same hours as we do.” Clients “can be an American they can not be one,” Nielsen said. “The service is used by all kinds of people for a

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks. Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident.

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services.

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

President Obama today sought to make light of a stinging public rebuke from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who took the president to task for disparaging GOP lawmakers while seeking to make a deal on immigration reform. Obama, the No. 2 House leader said yesterday after a phone conversation with the president, should “stop his partisan messaging and begin to seriously work with Congress.” Hours before the president called Cantor, the White House had issued a statement in which Obama ripped House Republicans for favoring “extreme measures” and “seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform.” “You’re always

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery."

The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons.
