Hillary Clinton defends
hefty speaking fees

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, by Briana Altergott

Original Article

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.

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.

A man has been arrested after he punched an elderly man in the face for asking him to stop swearing inside an Applebee´s restaurant in Florida. Mikie Dominic Sawyer, 26, was saying a string of expletives at the bar in the Dunlawton Avenue Applebee´s in Port Orange when 80-year-old Harry Sander approached him and asked him to stop. According to police, Sander politely asked Sawyer to stop using the ´F´ word and to stop talking so loudly about body parts.

Ashley Gabrielle Huff, a woman from the state of Georgia in the US, was jailed for one month after police officers confused spaghetti they found on her spoon for crystal meth. The bizarre sequence of events started in July 2014, when Huff was pulled over by police in Gainesville, Florida. During the routine search, officers were alerted to a spoon with a dried substance on it and concluded it was the highly addictive drug crystal meth, despite pleas from the 23-year-old that it was residue from canned pasta meal SpaghettiOs. She was charged with possession of methamphetamine and spent two

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.

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

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.
