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.)

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.

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.

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.

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

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

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,
