Hillary Clinton Says She’s Donated
All University Speaking Fees

ABC News, by Liz Kreutz

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/4/2014 2:41:35 PM

Hillary Clinton continued to justify her high-dollar speaking fees on Friday, telling ABC News’ Ann Compton that all of the money she’s made from colleges over the past year and a half has been donated to her family’s foundation. “All of the fees have been donated to the Clinton Foundation for it to continue its life-changing and life-saving work. So it goes from a foundation at a university to another foundation,” Clinton said when asked about the criticism she and her husband have faced recently for their wealth. Hillary Clinton reportedly makes roughly $200,000 for each speaking engagement. And recent reports show

Comments:
Lady, we are not stupid. Giving the fees to the family foundation which consists of you, Bill and Chelsea, doesn´t meet my donation standard.

If a Republican was doing this the media would correctly call this a "tax-dodging scheme".

Moreover, speaking fees paid by universities and colleges are miniscule compared to those paid by corporations and the like. A 25K speaking fee from a university is a BIG deal. So she pockets the big ones. Not surprising.

What "life-saving" work does the Clinton Foundation do? AIDS? The Clintons did more to spread AIDS than anyone else in the world, with their Arkansas prison blood scandal. The media never reported it, of course, so many are unaware of it.

Question - what kind of tax break does that give them? Are the fees paid directly to the foundation? Do they take a salary from the foundation?

Not taxed as ordinary income rates?

Details ... we need details. Definitely have to see the tax returns before she runs for President and also independent audits of the foundation.

Also - since she brought up the "dead broke" business to begin with ... and Bill stuck his two cents into the discussion ...

We should also get a look at all the donors to the Clinton Library. You never know who might "qualify" for preferred treatment / pardon / whatever, from another Clinton administration.

Information about all the legal bills that they both referred to ...

What else?

The money the Clintons get from speaking is pure graft. The fools who shell out the long bread for fifty minute speeches are buying influence from characters they believe to be pol;itically viable. If Hillary! doesn´t run for president, there´s no justification for her books and speeches; ergo, she will run unless physical infirmity prevents it. She´s taking the money out of her left pocket and putting it in her right pocket. The Clinton Foundation is ultimately for the benefit of Bill, Hillary!, and Chelsea.

#1, and others, you may be missing the scam that the Clintons are pulling.
THEY don´t have to take a penny in salaries, they just live a life of luxury,and the foundation pays the bills. Private jets, the best hotels, food, the best of everything, and they laugh at us little people.
That lifestyle was first cultivated by Bill and Hillary way back in Arkansas, when Hillary used a female state trooper as a nanny for her brat,when Bill was Governor.

WASHINGTON — Voters hate Washington, and they’ll get their chance to shake things up in November’s midterm elections. The big question is whether the Republicans can win control of the Senate while holding the House of Representatives, which would give them the entire Congress for the remaining two years of Barack Obama’s presidency and set the stage for the 2016 elections. At stake this fall are 36 of the Senate’s 100 seats, all 435 House seats and 36 governorships. Republicans start with a decided edge: – The most vulnerable Democrats are in states Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney won two years ago; – Republicans are

WASHINGTON — A 16-year-old Bobby Kennedy, with all four front teeth chipped from playing football, was planning to head home from Milton Academy for the weekend. Writing before the Kennedy family experienced a series of tragic deaths, there was a fatalistic side to his thoughts. “I’m going home this weekend to see my brother Jack who is now going into PT boats,” Kennedy wrote to one of his friends, “so I’m getting out to see him because he might be killed any minute.” The letter is part of two separate batches of newly revealed correspondence — one series written by Robert F.

During the Great Depression, the Communist scribes at the Daily Worker were forever assuring the more skeptical among their colleagues that the heroic spark was near. Having read about a “small riot somewhere in rural Minnesota,” Whittaker Chambers recorded in Witness, Robert Minor started shouting about “the beginning of the American revolution.” If the paper wished to capitalize upon dissatisfaction and spin it into insurrection and change, Minor proposed, it would need the staff to keep an eye out for the tell-tale sign and, then, to “play it up big.” Over the past month, the events in Ferguson, Mo., have played

President Obama gave an important press conference today and even took questions from the press, but all of this was overshadowed by the fact that Obama debuted one of the ugliest suits in the history of this great nation. The gist of Obama´s statement was that we don´t have a strategy to defeat ISIL in Syria yet. He also touched on Ukraine/Russia relations and the child migrant crisis. But instead of debating the validity of our foreign policy in the Middle East, Eastern Europe or Central America, Twitter abandoned its usually academic tone to focus on whether the tan (or

The day before Al Sharpton’s particular brand of civil rights activism led him to speak at Michael Brown’s funeral, The New York Times was celebrating him with a softball piece that outlined Sharpton’s strong connections to the Obama administration, White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, and even New York Mayor Bill de Blasio. What do all these leaders have in common? They lean left—hard left. Or as the motto of MSNBC, where Sharpton has a weekday show, puts it, they “lean forward.” But Sharpton’s leftward leanings weren’t the subject of the feature by the Times. Instead, authors Nikita Stewart and Jason Horowitz

The Department of Justice’s board of immigration appeals has decided to let Guatemalan women win asylum in the United States if they claim to be victims of domestic violence. The decision creates a huge new incentive for Guatemalan women to cross the U.S. border, because if their asylum claim is accepted, their children get U.S. citizenship, plus the use of federal health, education and retirement programs, regardless of their initial education and work skills. The new decision also means that many of the Guatemalan women who have already crossed the border this year have a new claim for asylum. “Under this breaking decision

Now we reserve these indignities for people who pay to travel on airplanes. The worst thing about air travel is that you cannot even complain about it without sounding like a hack comic from the 1980s. Anything is bearable so long as you can complain about it.

To the surprise of no one not on controlled substances, Rick Scott and Charlie Crist overcame weak primary opponents in a low turn-out election Tuesday to become the Republican and Democratic nominees for Florida governor. So it’s officially Mr. Sunshine against Mr. Clean (anyone who has seen Crist campaign and seen a picture of Scott will not question these sobriquets). Incumbent Scott was the choice of 88 percent of Republicans over two unknown vanity candidates. Florida Democrats demonstrated that they want the Florida governorship so badly — an office their party hasn’t held since 1994 — that they’re willing to run

Chris McDaniel´s first hurdle in his lawsuit to overturn his loss to Thad Cochran is a doozy: He may have waited too late to file it. As he worked for weeks building a case and campaigning that the election was stolen from him, McDaniel´s team said a 20-day deadline applies only to challenges of county and local elections, not a statewide U.S. Senate primary. Others, including the secretary of state, agreed with him. "Justice has no timetable," McDaniel said numerous times when questioned why it was taking so long to file his challenge of the June 24 GOP runoff for U.S. Senate. But

President Barack Obama said during a Thursday press conference that his administration doesn´t have a plan worked out yet for defeating the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) in Syria. [Snip] ´What I´ve seen in some of the news reports suggests that folks are getting a little further ahead of where we´re at than we currently are,´ Obama cautioned. He mentioned four times his intention to seek advice from Capitol Hill before deploying more military assets in the Middle East, likely in response to concerns from members of the House and Senate that he was unconstitutionally freezing them out.

I feel confident in saying that most Americans are disgusted by the perfectly legal practice of U.S. companies avoiding taxes by incorporating in another country. So why does it take a whopper of a story to get the media to pay attention? Burger King, as you know, is moving to buy the Canadian chain Tim Hortons, and this is more about dollars than doughnuts. The hamburger giant plans to move its headquarters to Canada, thereby slashing its Treasury tax bill. The White House doesn’t like it. Democrats don’t like it. The Republicans don’t like it. And, as usual, it doesn’t look like Washington

Megyn Kelly was incredibly bewildered Thursday night at President Obama‘s comment about having no concrete Syria strategy yet. Ed Henry was very blunt in telling Kelly that this is an unqualified “disaster” for the White House. Henry admitted he was “stunned” that none of his colleagues in the briefing room followed up on that remark of the president’s, especially considering how quickly after the presser the White House jumped right into “damage control mode.” And whereas last night Henry blew Kelly’s mind by telling her Obama would be attending one fundraiser on Friday, he told her tonight that actually, it’s going to

CULLMAN, Ala. — California is looking to bar the “Stars and Bars.” A bill sits on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week. Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, D-Compton, introduced the legislation after his mother discovered the Capitol gift shop sold a replica of Confederate money that contained a picture of the flag, according to the L.A. Times. The lone dissenting vote among the 67 cast was from former California GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks. He argued

Karl Rove is at it once again. The so-called “strategist” is again confusing strategy with tactics, and is about to blow easy Senate pickups in Arkansas and North Carolina. This is not merely snatching defeat from the jaws of victory -- this is snatching defeat from the bowels of victory -- in astonishing tone-deaf fashion. There is absolutely no excuse for not winning these two races. So how is the one-time “boy genius” doing this? By running ads attacking Senators Mark Pryor and Kay Hagan from the left. Yes, you heard that right. Rove’s Crossroads GPS PAC is insisting in their latest

The last two Republican candidates for president have been among the weakest GOP candidates in 50 years. Barack Obama presented Mitt Romney with a gift in 2012: A struggling economy, sluggish growth, a paucity of jobs, and a health care law that was extremely unpopular. In what should have been a landslide rejection of Obama´s policies, Romney flubbed it big time and allowed his opponent to define him - and Republicans - in the most unflattering way imaginable. You would have hoped that Romney would have retired from the public arena and kept a low profile as other losers have done in

At least four hostages held in Syria by the Islamic State, including an American journalist who was recently executed by the group, were waterboarded in the early part of their captivity, according to people familiar with the treatment of the kidnapped Westerners. James Foley was among the four who were waterboarded several times by Islamic State militants who appeared to model the technique on the CIA’s use of waterboarding to interrogate suspected terrorists after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The victims of waterboarding are often strapped down on gurneys or benches while cold water is poured over a cloth covering

intelligence community has observed a “significant increase” in chatter among terrorist organizations as the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks nears. “We’ve noticed a significant increase in chatter among Islamic terrorist organizations overseas both on the Internet and phone lines,” a U.S. government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Blaze. While the intelligence community can not pinpoint whether or not an attack is planned, the official said that agencies “did see this kind of increase in chatter before the September 11 attacks.”

The American Sociological Association, the leading professional organization for American sociologists, is now granting its members much greater leeway in how to define their gender identities. Previously, the ASA’s membership surveys only allowed three choices of gender: “male,” “female” and “prefer not to answer.” Now, as reported at Inside Higher Ed, members will have no fewer than seven options for their gender choice, with the added ability to select “all that apply.” The added options include “transgender male/transgender man,” “transgender female/transgender woman,” “genderqueer/gender non-conforming,” or another “preferred identity” of their choice not explicitly named. “Genderqueer” is defined by the Gender
