Hillary Clinton defends
hefty speaking fees

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, by Briana Altergott

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

None of these stories address the important issue: What do you have to pay her not to speak?

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.

Money laundering.

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.)

Money laundering.

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.

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

It always comes back to the dinner table with this guy. The 75-year-old Pakistani immigrant convicted in Brooklyn of beating his wife to death because she served him lentils instead of goat should get the minimum sentence, his lawyer argued Wednesday — because the lack of Pakistani food behind bars will be a hardship. “His inability to speak English and his inability to have Pakistani food will make his incarceration even more difficult than the average inmate,” defense attorney Julie Clark wrote in court papers seeking the minimum 15 years to life sentence for Noor Hussain.

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?

Posted By: snakeoil- 7/5/2014 2:20:14 PM     Post Reply
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

Obama wants to be impeached

President Obama insists on flirting with impeachment even as House Republican leaders insist there’s no such possibility. Obama uses a passive-aggressive strategy that can be judged as a political maneuver, a personality disorder, or both. Secure in the knowledge that impeachment is not the same as removal from office, Mr. Obama brings up the topic on his own and with bold defiance. Martyrdom goes well with a Messiah complex and Mr. Obama’s speeches are a non-stop litany of depicting himself as a victim of Republicans. Already operating beyond the constitutional bounds of presidential power, Mr. Obama’s strategy is to push the bounds

This is Jonathan Dahoah HeLevi of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. Ismail Haniyeh, the Hamas prime minister, delivered a revealing speech on March 23, 2014, in which he stressed the strategic importance of the Hamas attack tunnels, which, he argued, have changed the balance of power with Israel, when taken together with his organization’s military build-up. In the meantime, the IDF’s war against the tunnels continues. On Monday IDF forces thwarted another terror attack after two groups of Hamas

Even as President Obama grapples with the crisis of immigrant children arriving at the Southwest border, White House officials are laying the groundwork for a large-scale expansion of immigrant rights that would come by executive action within weeks. Officials signaled strongly Friday that Obama´s move would shield from deportation large numbers of immigrants living in the country illegally, as advocacy groups have demanded. Roughly 5 million of the estimated 11 million people who entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas could be protected under a leading option the White House is considering, according to officials who discussed

According to a CNN/ORC International poll released Friday, 33 percent of Americans think the president should be impeached and removed from office, compared with 65 percent who say they don’t support impeachment. Fifty-seven percent of Republicans say they support impeaching Obama, compared with just 35 percent of independent voters and 13 percent of Democrats.

Rep.

Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday with co-hosts Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K.

Senior White House advisers are taking very seriously the possibility that Republicans in Congress will try to impeach President Obama, especially if he takes executive action to slow deportations.

"This proposed rule will allow all Americans, including those with disabilities, to fully participate in the moviegoing experience,” Attorney Gen. Eric Holder said in unveiling the plan. The DOJ’s bid to amend the Americans with Disabilities Act comes four years after the agency signaled plans to move forward with new regulations, drawing more than 1,000 public comments.
