Will claims about her foundation´s financial
problems hurt Hillary´s presidential hopes?

Daily Mail [UK], by Meghan Keneally

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/15/2013 6:45:28 AM

Questions have been raised over financial dealings within the Clinton family charity that may cause problems for Hillary Clinton´s possible 2016 presidential run. New reports have revealed that the Clinton Foundation has been ´in the red´ for years even though the charity has raised hundreds of millions of dollars each year, showing the high cost of running the worldwide charity. Former President Bill Clinton called in a team of lawyers to help examine the charity´s financial standing over a year ago and they drew some unsettling conclusions. A scathing article in The New York Times tells how the ´rotating board

This won´t hurt her at all. 1) This is too complex for low-information voters, 2) Democrat entitlement voters think republicans will take away their government handouts, and 3) Hillary has become a folk hero to a large cult of far left liberals.

This was purposely outed now so that it can be sluffed off as ´old news´ during her run a few years from now.

Just like her medical condition and secretary of state tenure along with other scandals too numerous to mention.

The lo-fo´s will never know and if someone educates them, they will not care.

Makes me wonder if, in fact, they have now seen the problems with her and, since they can´t possibly allow a Republican President, even if she was the best choice, they realize that Hillary might be the worst thing to ever happen to Democrat Presidential Politics.

That would be, not our current incompetent, lazy, corrupt and racist black president (which they bear tremendous responsibility for getting elected) who has set back race relations and the cause of blacks everywhere, but an incompetent and corrupt woman, who would make women politicians look like incompetent weaklings, fools, liars, and greedy losers. After all, these unfailingly shallow people in the MSM classify people- and candidates - by the way they look. ("Clean and articulate" Obama with those "perfect creases"???)

You know, like Wendy Davis is a perfect Democrat candidate for Texas Governor-after all, she wears just adorable shoes!

They don´t realize that their beliefs are the problem. Maybe they have a candidate in the wings who is cuter than Hillary....(That could be almost anyone, of course....except Chelsea...)

I find it fascinating that someone has decided to attack at this time. And attack a woman who has been a failure her entire life and never really had any power. The damage done to this country was by her husband but only now, when she shows her intentions to run for potus, is someone attacking.

I´ll never forget the debate between Rick Lazio and Hillary. Rick tore her to pieces.

And then the press pilloried Lazio for being mean to a woman and being disrespectful to the First Lady. And that, my friends is exactly what will happen in 2016 if any Republican man runs against her. He will be vilified as a sexist.

The strategy is to get this out early. Never give a full explanation, then when the campaigning begins, say that you have addressed this before and never respond to questions asked. The lapdog media will never ask again and it will be a non-issue. However, if you put your dog in a crate and place it on top of your car, the media will continue to raise it as an issue decades later.

I can answer the headline without reading the article: the short answer is No, and Heck No.

Hillary can fraud her way to the presidency using the fraud machine the the Mulatto Marxist has spent years putting in place, using taxpayer dollars [ACORN, et al].

Why do you think the Left is so up in arms over Voter ID laws in 30+ states; why do you think the Left is pushing amnesty with all their might?

Voter Fraud. It´s the name of the game. It´s a way of life for the Left.

Doesn´t matter who heads the Dem ticket, look for statistics such as 110% turnout in precincts across the nation. The Fraud Machine is in place and getting bigger and stronger every day [OFA].

And the spineless "R"s are playing dead.

Hillary has done plenty of damage in her official capacity as SOS. Just ask Sean Smith´s mom. She will tell you Hillary lied to her face. Her son is dead but as frequently quoted, what difference, at this point, does it make? A more cold and calculating witch has not walked the face of this earth in a long time.

I respectfully disagree with those who say this can´t hurt her. If played right, this could be fatal to her ambitions. Stealing from charities is an easy concept that everybody understands, and even LoFos have a moral compass. And I do not believe the cult of Hillary is large. If it were, she would have easily defeated a nobody named Barry Obama in 2008. The ammunition is there to destroy her. The question remains if her foes will have the guts to fully employ it.

All 25 preceeding Ldotters have made great and original phrasemaking statements too numerous to ID. Study each one! There is hope, and it is not too early, there is so much to re-tell of the Clinton Opera of murder, theft, obfuscation, massive lying. Remember, Billy Bob and Evita Clinton´s draft dodging, undercover CIA work, Whitewater, Madison Guaranty, massive bank fraud, extortions, multiple rapes, attacks, threats, beatings, cover-ups, break-ins, Gennifer Flowers, Beverly Nursing Homes Enterprises, The Rose Law Firm, bribery, thefts, Tyson Foods, Arkansas Development Finance Authority (ADFA), The Stephens Inc financial empire, Paula Jones, the longtime Riady family relationship, non-stop adultery, election fraud, secretive Mena Arkansas air field drug and arms smuggling, Bill´s buddy the "bond daddie" king & felon, Dan Lasater, cocaine charges, incidental drug running, insider trading, trading in cattle futures, paying the governor for privilege, endless money driven scams. AND THAT’S JUST IN ARKANSAS ! before our merry troupe of prankster/gangsters arrived in Washington DC and took over renting out rooms in the White House for big bribe bucks. The opera
of these impeached co presidents in Washington is massive.

If the skeptics are correct, the Democrats are due to run a dud in 2016. Hillary could fit the bill. A Democrat Bob Dole.

If I was a skeptic, I´d say that every 8 years the treasury is passed like a baton from Democrat to Republican and then back again.

Conservatives didn´t do that #29. The second they discovered blank slate Obama, they dropped the Clintons like a hot brick. All Rush did was try to level the playing field a bit to keep Hillary in the game. The media did the dumping, not conservatives.

That is why the irony of articles trumpeting Hillary´s coronation as the nominee this time around is so amusing.

I don´t think that falling down the stairs again will make this one go away.

Sadly, when more scandals about Hillary Clinton appear, the mode of low expectations takes over. The list of dirt is so long and outrageous that any sense of decency is automatically nullified. That is what you expect from her and her husband, so it isn´t big news anymore.

The very fact that she is considering another Presidential run says a lot about the intelligence and morals of modern day America. I wish they would retire, move to another country, and mess up their lives.

This may not have been about Hill-err-ee-ass Herself nor Billyboobboob Klintoon
hizzelf at all... it may have been merely an innoculation self-administered by
none other than The Newd Dork Slimez.

At any time in the next __ X-number of years, the Slimez can point and say,
"Look! We´re not in the tank for the Klintoonz! We went right after them with
this massive front page expose!"

They may not even care much whether this helps, hurts or plays neutral for the
Klintoon Gang of thieves, liars, perverts and rapists.

It´s all about the Newd Dork Slimez bottom line, doncha know?
Gotta preserve that "aura of credibility" and the concept of political neutrality.
For those who won´t laugh themselves to death contemplating that!

After all, The Pervert Party of Weiner, Spitzer, Filner, JFK, Billyboobboob, etc.
ad infinitum, ad nauseum (think Edwards) needs a leading propaganda rag like the
Slimez to put a patina of respectability upon their latest larceny and fraud.

That´s what this is all about. Screw the Klintoonz... and save The Pervert Party´s
top spokes-liars... The Newd Dork Slimez.

Those who vote for people like Hillary are not capable of understanding what harm power can do in the hands of the unworthy, the greedy and the evil. They will vote for her because she´s a woman (sort of) she´s a Clinton or she´s a familiar face on one of their favorite magazines.

I hope not a single person here believes for a second that facts and truth have any bearing whatsoever on who Democrats want to represent them, because they don´t.
Democrats are secular, they have no use for God (other than those who claim to be Christian but embrace the world´s values) or God´s values. Without God, secularist have no values except what benefits them, their agenda and their wants. So they don´t know right from wrong. What they do know is what they believe benefits them... and they believe a Democrat benefits them and Republicans don´t. Because they embrace a false moral system and don´t know right from wrong, they fall prey to people like the Clintons and Obamas and all the other slick talking charlatans in Washington who tell them what they want to hear.
America must wake up to truth or Hillary will be our next president and America will take another step toward the abyss.

A pregnant journalist is recovering in hospital today after a pro-Kremlin political leader in Russia told two male aides to ´violently rape´ her at a press conference. Nationalist Vladimir Zhironovsky launched his extraordinary tirade after reporter Stella Dubovitskaya asked him an innocuous question about sanctions against Ukraine. The founder of the far right Liberal Democratic Party began shouting wildly, before suddenly manhandling two young male aides towards the pregnant mother-of-one. He then shouted to them: ´When I say, you run to her and violently rape her.´ The parliamentary reporter, who is six months pregnant, is now being treated in hospital

A huge fire in Gibraltar, caused by a fuel tank explosion, shut down many online betting services and disrupted gamblers during a busy day of sport. Residences near the blaze were evactuated following the fire, which broke out at around 1pm local time. The explosion occurred at Gibraltar´s main power station and the fire shut down much of the area´s electricity. Thousands of residents and tourists were left without power while firefighters battled the blaze. The fire was eventually brought under control at around 4.30pm local time. A Gibraltar Government spokesman said: "The fire is under control and there are no casualties

Immortalised in Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s poem about the “valley of death”, the Charge of the Light Brigade is remembered as one of the most glorious defeats in British history. The documents overturn much of the established wisdom of the battle and provide clues as to how the calamitous attack, during the Battle of Balaclava, in the Crimean War, came to be accidentally launched. [Snip] The charge saw the light cavalry mount an assault into a valley flanked, on three sides, by Russians. Lord Raglan, overall commander of the British forces, had intended to send the Light Brigade to pursue and

What stops the Earth from looking like Pluto is energy from the Sun. The quantity and type of energy coming from the Sun varies over cycles that range up to 1,500 years long. The cycle we can see with our own eyes, in our own lifetimes, is the sunspot cycle that is normally eleven years long. [Snip] It has become established—for those who are willing to look at the evidence—that climate will very closely follow our colder Sun. Climate is no longer a mystery to us. We can predict forward up to two solar cycles, that is about twenty-two years into the future. When models of solar activity are further refined, we may be able to predict climate

Of all the many absurdities of the great climate change non-crisis which has been pointlessly obsessing our planet this last three or four decades, surely the most egregious is this: global warming is good. No really, it is. As a few bold heretics--such as Australian geologist Ian Plimer in his book Heaven And Earth--have long been trying to tell anyone prepared to listen, the human species is designed for warmth not cold. Ice ages are something we should naturally fear; warming periods are something which for which we should yearn. All the historical evidence confirms this--that periods of warming

With her twinkling eyes and beaming smile, it is hard to believe Her Majesty will mark her 88th birthday tomorrow. This portrait of the Queen, taken by celebrated British photographer David Bailey CBE, was released today ahead of the occasion. It shows the monarch smiling at the camera - while donning a pearl necklace, earrings and a brooch. Her jewellery is accompanied by a simple dress by Angela Kelly, who has served as the Queen´s personal assistant and senior dresser since 2002. The black-and-white photograph was taken at Buckingham Palace in March and commissioned on behalf of the Government´s GREAT

At least six Birmingham schools accused of harbouring a Trojan horse plot run by Muslim fundamentalists will be placed under special measures by Ofsted. The action is understandable. The unsubtle attempts to insert Islamist ideas--representing an extremist, politicised form of Islam--into the curriculum of those schools makes for frightening reading. Equally unsettling was the liberal establishment’s failure to correct it. According to a special report by the Education Funding Agency, radical Muslims have tried to take control of teaching by first taking control of school governorships. Excellent head teachers were either reduced to the status of figureheads or forced out

Here we are again, facing Russia across the barricades. How did that happen? Only five minutes ago, the West was celebrating the collapse of Soviet communism: a historic victory which had been achieved without a shot being fired. Russia would now join the free world as a capitalist economy, with something like democratic institutions.

[Snip] IKEA--the place you go to, reluctantly, because the furniture is so cheap and practical, not because you want to save the planet for Mother Gaia--actually employs a "head of sustainability"? If that´s not a strong dump signal for the stock, I don´t know what is. What´s worse, though, is that IKEA actually admits to allowing the kind of food it serves in its restaurants

The price of chocolate could soar over the next few years as surging demand puts further pressure on the global cocoa crisis--and experts predict the demand could become unsustainable by 2020. Experts are warning that a growing taste for chocolate in Asia--particularly in China--means cocoa farmers will need more help to provide a greater amount to export or manufacturers will be forced to use less cocoa in their products. It is predicted chocolate prices will soar to keep up with the rising demand--otherwise consumers will increasingly be offered products filled with substitutes, such as nuts and fruits, to ‘pack out’ chocolate bars.

[Snip] Department for Education inspectors were ordered into Park View School and its sister schools, Golden Hillock and Nansen, after a letter dubbed ´Trojan Horse´ was uncovered apparently outlining a plot by Muslim hardliners to drive moderate headteachers out of schools.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
