Hillary Clinton´Personally´
Pays For Her Own Staff

Business Insider, by Hunter Walker

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/11/2014 11:25:15 AM

Hillary Clinton has responded to criticism of her six figure speaking fees by noting much of the money has gone to her family´s foundation. This has led some Republicans to wonder whether the foundation funds political operations for Clinton, who is considered the Democratic frontrunner in the 2016 presidential election. However, a source close to Clinton told Business Insider she "personally" pays for her staff. "The Secretary´s personal staff is paid for by her personally," the source said. The source also noted Clinton draws no salary from the foundation. On Tuesday, the conservative America Rising PAC published a blog post featuring five "burning

Lots of people in non-profit, small or closely held corporations get lots of bucks from the corp but it´s not called "salary".

This woman emits the stinky stench we dare not speak.

The most humiliated woman in the world, too, right in front of her "closest" aide, Hum a Weiner, the second most humiliated woman in the world.

Like most wealthy peoplem, who pay no taxes, why should she report "income" when everything she needs, food, shelter, clothing, transportation come from their "foundation" in "like kind" compensation? They want for nothing, while drawing no "official" income. What a fraud. She´s also no doubt a massive cheapskate like her bumpkin husband.

If you take tax deductions for the donation of used underwear your credibility is shot and when you and your people control the taxing authority you can do many things you can´t do otherwise.

Where does she get the money to pay her staff?

Being dead broke, you would assume she had no other money than speaking fees.

The Clintons never pay for anything.

My guess is they´re still using the temporary checks they got from the bank when they opened their account.

But they´re on their 17th package of deposit slips.

More ObamaCare woes: Congress must
act to block health insurance bailout
Fox News, by Sen. Marco Rubio    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 8/9/2014 4:25:06 AM     Post Reply
As evidence mounts of a looming taxpayer-funded bailout of health insurance companies under ObamaCare, the urgency grows for Congress to take this possibility off the table for good. As expected, ObamaCare´s costs are rising, and health insurers are passing them along to patients in the form of higher premiums and deductibles. Just this week, a majority of insurers offering health plans in Florida announced rate increases ranging from 11 to 23 percent. This means that if patients balk at paying this sharp increase and drop their coverage, these health insurers will have to make up the difference somehow. Enter section 1342 of the

Grim, unyielding and violent reality is beginning to confront the American political establishment with facts from which it cannot hide. For 35 years, since Iranians seized the American Embassy on November 4, 1979, and kept the Americans in it as hostages, the United States has been at war with radical Islamists. They knew it. We hid from it. Year after year since then, radical Islamists have grown more militant, more sophisticated and more numerous. Now, in an arc of terror from Boko Haram in Nigeria through Hamas in Gaza to ISIS in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, there is a clear wave of

Obama´s Iraq Aim: Contain,

Associated Press, by Robert Burns & Lara Jakes    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 8/9/2014 3:59:14 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama´s new military strategy in Iraq amounts to trying to contain - not destroy - the Islamic militant group that now controls much of the country´s northern region. That leaves open the questions of how deeply the U.S. will be drawn into the sectarian conflict, and whether airstrikes alone can stop the militants´ momentum. Obama insists he will not send American ground troops back to Iraq after having withdrawn them in 2011, fulfilling a campaign promise. Still, even the limited airstrikes against the vicious insurgency show the president´s conviction that the U.S. military cannot remain dormant after

Accused Rwandan War Criminal Captured
After Casually Crossing Canadian Border

A tip for war criminals hiding out in foreign countries: if you want to avoid detection, don´t wander across the U.S.-Canada border by foot. That´s exactly what accused war criminal Jean Leonard Teganya, 42, did shortly before he was arrested in Houlton, Maine, a quaint little town that is known for the annual Maine Soap Box Derby, Wiggy´s Trading Post, and now, a Rwandan fugitive. Teganya, a former medical intern, was allegedly involved in the deaths of almost 200 Tutsis at a Rwandan hospital. His family fled in 1994 to Congo, Kenya, and then India before ending up in Quebec

Jihadists Rout Kurds in North
and Seize Strategic Iraqi Dam
New York Times, by Tim Arango    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 8/8/2014 4:50:27 AM     Post Reply
BAGHDAD — The crisis gripping Iraq escalated rapidly on Thursday with a re-energized Islamic State in Iraq and Syria storming new towns in the north and seizing a strategic dam as Iraq’s most formidable military force, the Kurdish pesh merga, was routed in the face of the onslaught. The loss of the Mosul Dam, the largest in Iraq, to the insurgents was the most dramatic consequence of a militant offensive in the north, which has sent tens of thousands of refugees, many from the Yazidi minority, fleeing into a vast mountainous landscape. In one captured town, Sinjar, ISIS executed dozens of Yazidi

Vladimir Putin Might Fall. We Should

In July, the United States and the European Union finally bridged their differences and slammed Russia with severe sanctions in the wake of the shootdown of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17. The pincers and scalpels of the previous rounds were discarded; this time, it was whole industries—defense, finance, and energy—that were targeted, including Sberbank, Russia’s largest commercial bank. If the first round of U.S. sanctions was met with ridicule among the Kremlin elite—Vladimir Putin’s gray cardinal Vladislav Surkov, sanctioned back in March, joked that what he likes in the United States is Tupac Shakur, dead since 1996—there’s not much bluster this

New data from the Federal Reserve highlight how many Americans continue to struggle financially more than five years after the end of the Great Recession. As of September 2013, when the central bank conducted the poll, a quarter of families said they were "just getting by," while an additional 13 percent were struggling to make ends meet. Asked to compare their current financial situation with how they were faring five years ago, as the housing crash was wreaking havoc on the economy, 34 percent of respondents said they were doing "somewhat or much worse" than in 2008.

WHO: Ebola outbreak in West Africa

Global health experts Friday declared the Ebola epidemic ravaging West Africa an international health emergency that requires a coordinated global approach. Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are battling the Ebola virus, which has killed 932 people in those countries. The epidemic has also spread to Nigeria. "The possible consequences of further international spread are particularly serious in view of the virulence of the virus, the intensive community and health facility transmission patterns, and the weak health systems in the currently affected and most at-risk countries," the World health Organization said Friday, after two days of emergency meetings.

A Nevada rancher warned local law enforcement officials on Wednesday to uphold their oaths of office or face the consequences of a people forced to “defend [their] God-given rights," an ominous message that comes just months after the same rancher led an armed protest against federal agents. “While the [Bureau of Land Management] was willing to shoot my family over land and power, we were willing to die for our families, our livelihoods and our constitutional rights.

Arun Singhal has claimed to be a victim of the "Sandwich Mafia." Singhal is a former owner of a Subway franchise in Australia, and as he tells the story, he was punished by his corporate bosses after taking issue with the "six grams of fat or less" claim Subway puts on their menus and in advertising. Singhal, who had invested $350,000 into the Subway location, claims that a Subway leasing manager approached him about exchanging his space for a "new busier location." Instead, Singhal closed his old shop, but was left with nothing but a $350,000 loss and a lot of

Russian Strategic Bombers
Conduct More Than 16 Incursions

Russian strategic nuclear bombers conducted at least 16 incursions into northwestern U.S. air defense identification zones over the past 10 days, an unusually sharp increase in aerial penetrations, according to U.S. defense officials. The numerous flight encounters by Tu-95 Russian Bear H bombers prompted the scrambling of U.S. jet fighters on several occasions, and come amid heightened U.S.-Russia tensions over Ukraine. Also, during one bomber incursion near Alaska, a Russian intelligence-gathering jet was detected along with the bombers. “Over the past week, NORAD has visually identified Russian aircraft operating in and around the U.S. air defense identification zones,” said Maj.

Democrats Have a White Working Class

Whenever elections approach, there is always a flurry of concern among Democrats regarding the white working class. Despite a steady and gradual decline in its size over the last several decades, this group remains a substantial percentage of the electorate; even relatively small decreases in its support for Democrats can mean defeat to Republican opponents. On a national level, if white working class support falls even 1 or 2 percent below the 36 percent that Obama received from them in 2012, the party´s 2016 nominee will be in serious trouble. In this year’s election cycle, the discussion about white working

The troop contingent was promised a month ago by current Republican Gov.

The GOP has shown time and again that it is incapable of passing any meaningful immigration reform. But give them tens of thousands of Central American children fleeing violence, and they fly into action. Turns out, what animates today´s Republicans is deporting kids. So inspired were they, the GOP-controlled House of Representatives stayed late Friday to distort and demagogue a humanitarian crisis, passing a reprehensible bill that the Republicans claim addresses the border crisis. Kevin Appleby, director of the Office of Migration Policy at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, told me, "This bill guts any real due process for

Russo also helped start the Our Country Deserves Better PAC, aka the Tea Party Express.

An elementary school in the outer suburbs of Atlanta has outlawed birthday cupcakes, cookies and, in fact, all food from birthday parties over fears that some kids with food allergies could feel sad and left out. Officials at Brooks Elementary School in Newnan, Ga. announced the draconian new policy for the upcoming school year via a letter to parents, reports The Newnan Times-Herald. “When parents have brought in goodies for birthdays, oftentimes these children are not included in the snack because of dietary restrictions and have felt left out,” Julie Raschen, principal of Brooks Elementary, said, according to the Times-Herald.

The change became official Tuesday when the township council voted to change the name of the building to honor President Barack Obama, according to a report on BurlingtonCountyTimes.com.

President Obama said Thursday night that he has authorized two new, major actions by the U.S. military in Iraq: airstrikes against militants with the Islamic State if U.S. interests or personnel are threatened, and humanitarian assistance for thousands of civilians who have fled the Islamist advance in northwest Iraq and are now trapped on a mountain. Even those two specific missions are more complicated than that, however. First, the U.S. humanitarian mission on Mount Sinjar began Thursday with airdrops by military aircraft, but it could require targeted airstrikes in order to “break the siege” at the base of the mountain and

Speaking at the U.S.-Africa Summit earlier this week, Secretary of State John Kerry had a bit of astonishing advice for African leaders. While noting that Africa faces a starvation problem, he also admonished its leaders not to create more farms. The reason? Adding more farms would contribute to “global warming.” Yeah, he really said that: “Certain agricultural processes can actually release carbon pollution and actually contribute to the problem in the first place. It’s a twisted circle. Always complicated. But we also know that there are certain ways to change that. For example, rather than convert natural areas to new farmland, a process
