Hillary Clinton defends
hefty speaking fees

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, by Briana Altergott

Posted By:snakeoil, 7/6/2014 6:38:55 PM

After a week of especially heavy criticism, Hillary Clinton is defending the hefty price tags on her university speeches. (Via Getty Images) In an interview with ABC Friday, Clinton said she has given every penny of the thousands of dollars she´s earned giving paid speeches over the last year and a half to her family´s charitable 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 makes an average of $200,000 for each paid speech she

So now she can deduct those fees ´donated´ to her ´foundation´ on her income tax return. A win win. No one ever said the clintoons were stupid.

Isn´t this what capitalism and the free market is all about? What a willing buyer agrees to pay a seller for their product? Nobody is forced to invite her or pay her price.

Who are the officers of the Clinton Foundation? (Yeah, know who.) What are their salaries? And does the Foundation pay their travel expenses? (Yes.) Does the Foundation pay their other expenses? (Yes.) And what is the ratio of income to expenses? ( Unknown.) And are the financial books of the Foundation open to inspection? (No.)

Clinton Foundation has about 400 Million. It only has to give 5% annually to a recognized charity. Almost unlimited expenses may be removed by anyone. In other words, the "foundation" will never run out of money nor will the entire Clinton tribe.

I have commented previously about this situation. I do not support Mrs Clinton one
iota, but if she is being paid any dollar amount to speak, it is up to the payer to meet her fee or tell her no go. If no one will meet her asking price, she will have to lower it or stay home.

The Clinton Foundation when audited last year can not account for all of the money. They have spent $50 million on travel expenses for Wild Bill and his mile high club guests. Also, please note that this $50 million was spent while the Hildebeast was flying a million miles (and infinite amounts of booze later...) on our dime in the State Dept. jet. The Clinton Foundation is modeled after the Rainbow Coalition and is another "shake down" operation for influence. Also warning to Elizabeth Warren - see references to Ron Brown before accepting travel arrangements from Bill and the beast.

By my reckoning, she has taken in about 55 million dollars since she has been free from the SOS "Job". She´s not going to run for prez. this money is to buy the next President of the United States and several Demoncrat senators. She is the epitome of evil as far as the Old United States is concerned. For the New United Republica of Norte Americiba, she is Saint Hillary.

Now people, let´s have some respect for our former Commander-in-Heat and his wife.

They´ve got a grandbaby on the way, and you know how much it costs to go see the kiddo and then bring some modest gifts, you know, like a penthouse apartment and a very good looking young nanny, with grandpa also looking for bonding time (with the grandkid and in this case, probably the nanny).

And you heard Bill and Hillary; they go over to the Chappaqua Village Market grocery shopping every Saturday and we all know how much grocery prices have increased.

Why, the price of arugula went up a whole dollar last month!

I have no love for PIAPS. However #2 is incorrect. She has income for the fee and a deduction. Actually when factoring payroll taxes on the income and depending on the amounts of the fees relative to the other income the Klintoons have, they actually could be out of pocket since there is a limit on the amount you can deduct in any given years for contributions to a private foundation. So...net, net, there is NO tax benefit motivating this. Sorry.

Of course her speaking fees are a scam; of course her Foundation is a scam.

What is wonderful is it is being discussed AS a scam. If the message is she´s making too much money and making excuses about it, it means that no one is discussing the issues she´s running on. She´s lost total control of her message. It´s amateur hour.

COLUMBIA – A drone carrying cellphones, marijuana and other contraband into a South Carolina maximum-security prison never made it inside the 12-foot-high razor wire fence, and authorities said Wednesday they are looking for one of two people accused in connection with trying to sneak it in. The search has been ongoing since April 21, when officials found a small, crashed drone in bushes outside the walls of Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville, according to Corrections Department spokeswoman Stephanie Givens. At the site, Givens said that officers also found materials that inmates aren’t supposed to have, including the phones, tobacco products, marijuana

An Athens-Clarke County police officer shot and killed a dog Tuesday after it mauled a 10-year-old boy and then attacked the officer, the Athens Banner-Herald reports. Police responded to a home at 9:46 p.m. after the attack was reported. A 14-year-old boy told the officer his brother had been bitten in the face by the family’s pit bull, the Banner-Herald reports. “(He) was visibly upset about what just happened and expressed his desire for the dog to die,” according to a police incident report, the Banner-Herald reports.

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has called for an end to the fighting and bombing in Gaza. “Both sides must distinguish between combatants and noncombatants, and Israel must ensure that its use of force is proportionate in accordance with international humanitarian law. More immediately, all combat operations must stop, and Israeli troops should withdraw from Gaza,” Carter said in a statement released Tuesday. So far, more than 600 Palestinians, mostly civilians, have been killed in the fighting, according to reports. The Israeli death toll is estimated at 29, including two civilians. Humantarian groups have also called for an end to

Happy 158th birthday, Nikola Tesla. The anniversary of the Serbian-American inventor´s birth will be celebrated Thursday with cake and a flag-raising ceremony at his former laboratory in Shoreham, followed by discussions of his work at Shoreham-Wading River High School. Both events are free. Tesla, who was born July 10, 1856, in Croatia, has been credited with developing wireless technologies and devising some of the major components used in modern radio and electricity. Tesla achieved local fame in the early 20th century when he worked for about 12 years in a Shoreham lab called Wardenclyffe, at Route 25A and Randall Road.

Is the Name Kaffir Lime Racist?

If you’re an American, you might not flinch when you hear a certain bumpy green citrus fruit referred to as a kaffir lime. But in many parts of the world—most notably South Africa—the common moniker for the fruit, best known as an ingredient in Southeast Asian cooking, sounds heinously offensive. As Veronica Vinje recently pointed out on Straight.com, kaffir is “a horrible racial epithet, akin to using the N-word in North America.” So why are these limes called by that name? The K-word has a long, complex history, but how it came to refer to a type of citrus fruit is a bit murky. The Arabic word kafir was originally used to refer to

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store. Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the District Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

President Obama returned to his vacation home at Martha’s Vineyard after briefly interrupting his vacation for two days of meetings in Washington, D.C. Obama met with his economic team Tuesday before leaving the White House at 4:22 pm to return to his vacation home. He did not react to the news that broke later that evening about an ISIS video that showed the beheading of American journalist James Wright Foley. The National Security Council reacted, however, in a statement provided by spokesperson Caitlin Hayden. “We have seen a video that purports to be the murder of U.S. citizen James Foley by ISIL,” Hayden said.

In July, after Germany trounced Brazil 7–1 in the semifinal match of the World Cup—including a first-half stretch in which the Brazilian soccer squad gave up an astonishing five goals in 19 minutes—a sports commentator wrote: “This was not a team losing. It was a dream dying.” These words could equally describe what has become of Barack Obama’s foreign policy since his second inauguration. The president, according to the infatuated view of his political aides and media flatterers, was supposed to be playing o jogo bonito, the beautiful game—ending wars, pressing resets, pursuing pivots, and restoring America’s good name abroad.

The ISIS terrorist in the video says that the beheading is revenge for President Obama’s recent airstrikes on ISIS targets in Iraq. The video, viewed in full by PJM, begins with a snippet of Obama speaking about the strikes, then shifts to images of the strikes with a title that reads, “American Aggression Against the Islamic State.” The title card then says a “A Message to America.” Foley, with a shaved head, was

It turns out that there are some good reasons why the former Governor and GOP Presidential nominee is allowing his name to be circulated as a potential candidate in 2016. Some of those good reasons can be found in a new poll by Zogby Analytics showing him outpolling his nearest rivals for the nomination by about two to one. The poll of 315 likely Republican primary voters was conducted online on August 13-15 and has a margin of sampling error of +/-5.6 percentage points. Romney places first in the 2016 race for the nomination with 20%, followed by New jersey Governor

Global warming has been temporarily ´paused´ according to a group of scientists, who attribute this interlude to climate fluctuations and a more restrained sun. Researchers at ETH Zurich have explained the two reasons behind the warming hiatus in their study published in the latest issue of the journal Nature Geoscience. The first is that global temperatures, which rose significantly in the 1990s, have only risen very slightly since 1998 - which has been used by sceptics to question climate change and the models used to measure it. However, climate fluctuations such as El Niño and its counter-phenomenon La Niña have
