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.

OMG: Limbaugh´s ´Jesus´

There they go again. The New York Times Book Review, which has a history of belatedly recognizing conservative bestsellers, has banished conservative legal author David Limbaugh’s latest, Jesus on Trial, from its upcoming best seller list despite having sales better than 17 other books on the list. According to publishing sources, Limbaugh’s probe into the accuracy of the Bible sold 9,660 in its first week out, according to Nielsen BookScan. That should have made it No. 4 on the NYT print hardcover sales list. Instead, Henry Kissinger’s World Order, praised by Hillary Clinton in the Washington Post, is No. 4 despite weekly sales

It’s official: the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has issued an order declining a request for an en banc hearing in a case involving four students in at a California high school who were sent home for wearing American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. The full slate of Ninth Circuit judges has thus agreed with a lower district court and with a trio of appellate judges that officials at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif. could censor students who wanted to wear flag-emblazoned shirts. The federal appeals court issued its denial of an en banc hearing on Sept.

A large government contracting firm that appears to be doing or seeking business with the National Security Agency employs the spouse of one of the most powerful officials at the agency, according to corporate records, press releases, and company websites. But the NSA has declined to address whether there is a potential conflict of interest or to disclose any information about contracts or the official’s financial holdings. The spouse, for years, has also had an intelligence technology company incorporated at the couple’s suburban residence in Maryland. The NSA official, Teresa H.

CLAYTON, Missouri -- Protesters seeking the immediate arrest of the white Ferguson police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black 18-year-old loudly disrupted another government meeting Tuesday. The group renewed calls to remove the county prosecutor investigating the case and vowed political retaliation against an elected official tied to the prosecutor. The demand for officer Darren Wilson´s arrest and the recusal of the St. Louis County prosecuting attorney began with the final utterance of the Pledge of Allegiance at the start of the St. Louis County Council meeting. "For all," crowd members shouted, emphasizing the second word, as the pledge concluded with,

Worried the pearly gates won´t have clean water? TV evangelist Jim Bakker has your back. Twenty years after his release from prison following rape and fraud allegations, the disgraced pastor is busy selling unique survival kits apparently for the Apocalypse. On his website for his latest TV program, "The Jim Bakker Show," the 74-year-old sells everything from bulk "End of the World Biscuits," "Extreme Survival Bottles" — two for $57 — and extreme cold-weather apparel.

Federal authorities have charged an upstate New York man with trying to persuade two others in the United States to join the Islamic State, or ISIS, the terrorist group wreaking havoc in Iraq and Syria that U.S. officials have been outspoken about for weeks. Mufid Elfgeeh, 30, of Rochester, also plotted to kill U.S. soldiers who had returned from Iraq, federal prosecutors announced today. Last year, two FBI informants began building relationships with Elfgeeh, who -- not realizing they were working with the FBI -- encouraged them to go overseas and join terrorists in Syria, prosecutors allege in court documents.

MONTREAL -- Quebec´s separatists are watching closely this week to see if the Scottish independence movement has learned from their failed attempts to break away from Canada. And it could be rejuvenated if Scotland breaks away from the United Kingdom. The Scottish National Party, which is leading the campaign for Scotland to vote yes in Thursday´s vote on independence, has been advised over the years by separatists in Quebec, a French-speaking province where two referendums on independence failed, though the last "Non" was narrow. Polls suggest the outcome in Scotland will be close. A vote by Scotland to separate from

With riches and success, Cosby indulged himself in illicit affairs in Las Vegas and partied with abandon in Los Angeles with celebrity swingers and Playboy bunnies at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion, while his wife Camille was ensconced in their home.

How perfectly Clintonian: “While a crowd of several thousand Democrats waited on a sloping, grassy field below, Mrs Clinton, her husband and Senator Harkin staged a mini-grilling of steaks for the press at a single barbecue grill in a fenced-off enclosure, framed by a handsome tree and a picnic table filled with some patient Iowans. Mrs Clinton gamely posed, pretending to grill a steak that had been pre-cooked for her.” Remember all those relentless media references to George W.

Mike Huckabee is leading the Republican presidential race in Iowa. And not by just a point or two: in a new CNN survey, the former Arkansas governor, winner of the 2008 Iowa caucuses, is at 21 percent, with his closest GOP pursuer, Rep. Paul Ryan, nine points behind. Rand Paul is 14 points back, Chris Christie and Jeb Bush 15 behind. Few frontrunners choose not to run. And when Huckabee, not yet a candidate and officially undecided, invited a group of reporters to meet with him at a hotel outside Washington Monday, he certainly looked like a man preparing to

And it is so special for me to get to meet kids like you guys," Michelle Obama started. "Because sometimes living in the White House and being married to the

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, one of the masterminds behind Obamacare, has now explained that he wishes to die at age 75. In an article in The Atlantic, Emanuel writes, “Seventy-five. That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.” He explains that his daughters disagree; so do his brothers and his friends. But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but

Congress is living in an "evidence-free zone" as it debates issues of equal pay and family-friendly work policies, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday. "Unfortunately, reality is not always the context in which these decisions are made. The Congress increasingly -- despite the best efforts of my friends and others -- is living in an evidence-free zone," she said during a roundtable discussion at the Center for American Progress focused on women´s issues. "What the reality is, in the lives of Americans is so far from the minds of too many who don´t place the highest priority" on

Protesters threatened continued rioting and violence if Officer Wilson is let off.

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, a Senior Member of the House Homeland Security Committee and House Judiciary Committee and Ranking Member of the Border and Maritime Subcommittee.(snip) The Congresswoman released the following statement: “The bloodshed at the hands of ISIL has been enormous. Religious minorities have been persecuted. American and British citizens have been beheaded. There is a further threat of other innocent human beings to be beheaded or killed in some way. It is also clear that a war including the United States is not the answer. I abhor the violence of war when diplomacy can be used.

(Video) Wednesday at the Senate Foreign Relation Committee hearing on U.S. strategy for combating ISIS, after Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) criticized Secretary of State John Kerry, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) was left "shaking and trembling" in shock. Boxer said, "I think it is shocking and a sad state of affairs that we heard just now, such angry comments aimed at you, Mr. Secretary, and through you, at our president instead of at ISIS, a savage group who decapitated two Americans and have warned, and I quote, that their thirst for more American blood is right out there."

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security
