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.

Johns Hopkins Health System has agreed to pay $190 million to settle the case of a gynecologist who secretly photographed and recorded his patients. The doctor committed suicide after confessing to the clandestine photos and recordings. "We have come to an agreement that the plaintiffs´ attorneys and Johns Hopkins Health System believe is fair and properly balances the concerns of thousands of plaintiffs with obligations the Health System has to provide ongoing and superior care to the community.

How Hobby Lobby Split the

In the Hobby Lobby decision handed down last month, the Supreme Court was asked to strike a balance between women’s rights and religious freedom. But the major conflict that has erupted in the wake of that decision has been between religious freedom and gay rights. The resulting controversy has split gay-rights and faith groups on the left, with wide-ranging political fallout that some now fear could hurt both causes. One chapter of the controversy is set to close on Monday, when President Obama plans to sign a long-awaited executive order banning federal contractors from discriminating against gays and lesbians, according to

How Obama Questions Your Patriotism
Creators Syndicate, by David Harsanyi    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 7/21/2014 9:36:33 AM     Post Reply
So Barack Obama is again using one of the most contemptible phrases in American politics — "economic patriotism." There are many credible reasons to despise this rhetorical construct. Patriotism, after all, is the attachment to one´s homeland, a nationalistic devotion to one´s country and the values that make it great. If a person not only resists things that are "patriotic" but opposes them, then logic dictates that the person is being unpatriotic. So the president is really asking one question: Why do you hate America? Instead of protecting tax loopholes that let corporations keep their profits overseas, let´s put some of that

BuzzFeed saw monitors from the OSCE, a security agency with observer status in the east Ukraine conflict, inspect three large gray railway cars at the train station in Torez on Saturday morning. Heavily armed, well-trained rebels opened the doors, letting off a foul stench of decomposition inside. It was unclear whether the refrigeration was working.

Candy Crowley got quite a surprise when she pushed John Kerry on whether the United States was comfortable with the scale of Israel’s military response to Hamas terrorists lobbing missiles indiscriminately into their land. Kerry explained why Israel was right to defend her citizens, and then told Candy that the terrorists in Gaza purposely maximize civilian casualties among their own people in order to elicit exactly the kind of questions she’s asking. I doubt she liked that very much.

In their denouncements of the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling, Hillary Clinton and other Democrats have been accused of pandering to single women — the so-called “Beyoncé voter” demographic, as one Fox News commentator sniggered. But you know what? If you were running for office, you’d be wooing us single ladies, too. After all, we — unlike those democratic deadbeats known as men — show up to vote. Maybe that’s a little harsh. But the truth is that women vote in higher numbers than men do. We have in every presidential election since 1980, and the gap has widened over

His emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment, particularly as he immediately reverted to script to praise his administration and criticise Republicans. It was a far cry from President Reagan’s 1983 fierce denunciation of the Soviet shooting down of a Korean airliner as a ‘crime against humanity’. But it only confirmed the chaos into which US foreign policy has descended since the summer

Convinced that their region has suffered as much Obama administration meddling as it can possibly stand, Israel and Egypt took the extraordinary step earlier this week of jointly rejecting requests by US Secretary of State John Kerry to involve himself in ceasefire talks with the terrorist group Hamas. Israeli and Egyptian diplomats both claim Egyptian efforts to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas collapsed as a direct result of Secretary Kerry’s announcement he was prepared to join the talks. He apparently made the announcement without first consulting either of the parties. The diplomats are convinced that their own

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a "superb" president, but questioned whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign for the White House, a media report Monday said. Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what´s really important from what´s less important. I think he´s got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he´s got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well." "Joe would

As a TV and movie star for nearly six decades, the Oklahoma kid made the hard art of acting seem like a game — as deft and persuasive as a gambler´s con He was a man’s man who relied on his wits instead of his fists; a ladies’ man who wouldn’t steal a fella’s girl. Famous for his Maverick Western series in the 1950s and The Rockford Files in the ’70s, and in movies like The Great Escape and Grand Prix in between, James Garner played amiable, independent characters for more than a half-century, and never lost his comforting, enduring appeal.

LOS ANGELES — Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” has died, police said. He was 86. He was found dead of natural causes at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles Saturday evening, Los Angeles police officer Alonzo Iniquez said early Sunday. Police responded to a call around 8 p.m. PDT and confirmed Garner’s identity from family members, Iniquez told The Associated Press. There was no immediate word on a more specific cause of death. Garner had suffered a stroke in May 2008, just weeks after his 80th birthday.

Vice President Biden told Vladimir Putin that he did not believe the Russian leader had “a soul” during a visit to the Kremlin in 2011, the vice president said in a New Yorker magazine interview published Monday. Biden said the incident occurred while he was touring Putin’s office in the Kremlin. “I had an interpreter, and when he was showing me his office I said, ‘It’s amazing what capitalism will do, won’t it? A magnificent office!’ And he laughed. As I turned, I was this close to him,” Biden said, signaling that the two leaders were standing just inches apart. “I

Former President Bill Clinton said his wife Hillary Clinton needs time to think about what her message to voters would be if she runs for president in 2016. She "really does need some time to think through this,” now that her memoir Hard Choices has been published, he said in an interview with CNN. "We´ve reached a point in our life when we think you really shouldn´t run for office if you don´t have a clear idea of what you can do and a unique contribution you can make and you can outline that," Clinton added. "Now that the book is done,
