Unease at Clinton Foundation
Over Finances and Ambitions

New York Times, by Nicholas Confessore and Amy Chozick

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 8/14/2013 1:06:51 PM

Soon after the 10th anniversary of the foundation bearing his name, Bill Clinton met with a small group of aides and two lawyers from Simpson Thacher & Bartlett. Two weeks of interviews with Clinton Foundation executives and former employees had led the lawyers to some unsettling conclusions. The review echoed criticism of Mr. Clinton’s early years in the White House: 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

No such luck--the NYT is just getting it out there so the punditry can say, come election season, "oh that´s old news." NYT will go to any length to help Hillary--never doubt it.

2 things

Clintons know they have abused the foundation vehicle and launched pre-emptive review with goal of cleaning up the worst abuses and teeing up a "narrative" for their favorite sycophants in the press to prepare the lofo´s for the bad news and then dismiss it as "old news." Fraud, cronyism, criminal behavior, stealing, lying, influence pedaling..all the tried and true tricks of the grifters´ trade.

Second, there are lots of others who want the nomination and they have friends who caught wind of the results of the review and have their own moles.

You can be sure the NYT broke the story because someone else is coming with a bigger one. They may have faced accusations of trying to bury the bad news had they ot jumped ahead of the other parties with access to the gory details.

Being the cynic that I am when it relates to Democrats, I wonder if 0bama or some other powerful Democrat is behind digging up this "dirt." I could access the article and the headline sounds more ominous than what is actually provided in the article. Democrats have exhibited far worse behavior than this. Does 0bama and other high muckety-mucks in the party already have a "chosen one" that is not Clinton and this is done to undermine her early on? Inquiring minds want to know.

This shouldn´t surprise anyone. Billary looted the White House when they moved out in 2001 and had their goons vandalize what they left behind. In light of that, why would we be shocked at the possibility of them skimming off the top of their charitable foundation? Those two skunks have never changed their stripe.

The east coast liberal establishment, especially the Kennedy wing, were never in love with the Clintons the way they are in love with Obama. They defended them when the Clintons were under attack from Republicans but otherwise considered them rubes on the make. One editor of a magazine only east coast liberals read mused in the mid 90s that Bill Clinton´s presidency could be liken to a fat pinata that spewed out goodies to whomever whacked him the hardest. I suspect these types have several names in mind for 2016 other than Hillary Clinton.

You know what I hate ? Foundations that seek endowments.

That´s nothing but pride.

Rather than spend the money on the needy, they want to raise $ 250,000,000 and ensure that their name and influence stick around.

Always makes me think less of the charities involved. Of course this one is pure pride and politics....it´s a phony effort.

In this very forum, years ago, I pointed out that the Clinton Foundation was #1)a tax avoidance scheme #2)influence peddling scheme #3)money laudering scheme.

It has functioned during the Obama years as a shadow/parallel DNC, keeping political operatives employed, raising money, and maintaining donor lists for a time when the Dark Lord would rise again.

This has been obvious from day one. It has also served as a vehicle to "cleanse" the Clinton legacy (which will always remain "the stain on the little blue dress"), and purchase a Nobel Peace Prize for Bill. That, and getting Hillary elected President will represent Bill´s resurrection and proof that his impeachment was nothing but "a vast right wing conspiracy"

I cannot sufficiently convey the abject horror I have at the thought of the Clinton´s in the White House again. The Democrats are exhausting me with their relentless efforts to recreate the Soviet Union...

Did someone say this was a devastating article? I listened to Rush today and he said it was a pretty tough article. Well, I beg to disagree with El Rushbo. If this is considered a tough article on the PIAPS and the Bent One and the Spawn, then standards for what qualifies as a critical or devastating article have been substantially reduced. So, okay it wasn´t a typical puff piece, but there is nothing to see here.

CGI and Teneo are as corrupt as the Clintons, so what else is new? PIAPS has way more to answer for in her disgusting role in Benghazi. We are about to see the press cover, slobber, and lie, cheat and steal for the first female (?) president, PIAPS.

If Hillary is elected President, every other ambitious Democrat may have to wait until 20 January 2025 for their turn. As long as she´s a viable candidate, she sucks all the oxygen out of the room, so to speak, as far as raising campaign funds and recruiting personnel are concerned. Don´t underestimate how many Democrats want her out of the way for those reasons alone. Plus, she really is toxic for down-ticket candidates. I suspect it´s been Democrats behind the scenes knocking Hillary´s ally Anthony Weiner out of the NY Mayoral race, and making sure Benghazi revelations keep drip-drip-dripping out.

As everyone knows, Brandeis publicly announced that they would award Ayaan Hirsi Ali an honorary doctorate--and then, under siege by nearly 30% of their professors, and by thousands of their own students, they publicly disinvited Hirsi Ali. This campaign was orchestrated by the Muslim Student Association and by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization which is the American face of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

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

An ex-Arizona sheriff and supporter of Cliven Bundy spoke out to defend the Nevada rancher in a radio interview this week, flagged by Right Wing Watch, and he compared Bundy to Rosa Parks while decrying federal authorities for exhibiting Nazi-like tactics by saying they’re just following orders. Richard Mack told radio host Steve Deace that Bundy took a stand against the government “trying to make sure other peasants don’t rise up with their pitchforks” and said this moment is exactly like “Rosa Parks refusing to get to the back of the bus.” When Deace brought up the “just following orders” justification that

Crimea is in Moscow’s hands. Some of Kiev’s army has surrendered parts of eastern Ukraine without a fight. And now there are signs that Russian President Vladimir Putin may have picked his next targets: First a small breakaway state in Moldova, west of Ukraine, where thousands of Moscow’s troops are already stationed; then its close neighbor Odessa, Ukraine’s third-largest city and its largest remaining port, where pro-Russian and pro-government groups are tangling. If forces loyal to Putin can successfully disrupt Odessa, it could effectively cut the county of Ukraine in two.

New York City’s welfare system is managed out of a boxy 25-story office building on Water Street in Lower Manhattan. Approximately 5,000 employees work there, directing government programs that provide billions of dollars of taxpayer-funded assistance to the poor and near-poor. A solid majority of the workers at 180 Water Street are African-American or Latino; their voter registration is almost certainly overwhelmingly Democratic; and all but about 300 of them are union members. But from 1995 until this past December, the people who worked in New York’s principal social-services agency were leading one of the most conservative and successful welfare

According to a formal offer letter obtained under New York’s Freedom of Information Law, CUNY intends to pay Krugman $225,000, or $25,000 per month (over two semesters), to “play a modest role in our public events” and “contribute to the build-up” of a new “inequality initiative.” It is not

As predictable as the media silence to follow comes the news that New York City´s new left-wing mayor, who ran on a platform based in large part on raising taxes, paid an effective 8.3% tax rate in 2013 based on a total income of over $200,000. Mayor de Blasio and his wife made $167,047 in income, $52,000 in rental income on a second home in Park Slope, and reported charitable donations that totaled just 3% of their income, or $5,597.

Attorney General Eric Holder‘s planned meeting with mainstream media outlets’ Washington bureau chiefs have been stalled after the Justice Department indicated that the conversations would be off-the-record. The New York Times‘ executive editor Jill Abramson was the first to decline the invitation, and shortly after the AP, CNN, CBS News and The Huffington Post followed suit. With much of the debate over the DOJ’s subpoena guidelines revolving around reporter James Rosen, Fox News clearly has a vested interest in the outcome of the meeting.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
