CNN Money, by Jackie Wattles

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 3/17/2017 10:44:54 PM

Expedia just named Chelsea Clinton to its board of directors. In a public filing posted Friday, the travel site said it named Clinton -- the daughter of Hillary Clinton -- as a member of its board on Thursday. Expedia (EXPE) said Clinton will be paid "in accordance with the company´s standard compensation policies" for board members. According to an Expedia proxy statement from August, non-employee directors were paid a $45,000 "annual retainer" and awarded $250,000 worth of stock in 2015. Board members who served on various committees were paid an additional $10,000 to $20,000. But Expedia said in a filing

Can´t these political animals ever get a real "nine to five" job? No wonder they have no clue abut spending, just taking. Purely a resume builder that means nothing to America´s real workforce.

Ironically, my other half and I were talking about boards of directors earlier today.

I am of the opinion that appointments to boards of directors are a means to curry favor from politicians while not running afoul of campaign finance laws. Corporation A can only donate so much to a politician, but stick them on the board, where they may make one meeting a year, and you can compensate them 6 figures. If the politician wishes to avoid the appearance of improprietary, name their spouse or kid to the board.

One of the things I do check when I get my annual reports and proxy statements for some of my retirement accounts is to see who is being placed on these corporate boards.

If I find they were (1) a Clinton crony, (2) an Obama crony, or (3) a RINO (for example, one firm runs Richard Armitage, Colin Powell´s stooge), they get a NO vote from me.

"She also sits on the boards of the Clinton Foundation´s Clinton Health Access Initiative, the School of American Ballet, the Africa Center, and Weill Cornell Medical College. She´s also co-chair of the advisory board for New York University´s Of Many Institute."

(Video) The U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Wednesday reversed its position on the status of a man who has sued over his deportation to Mexico, acknowledging he was enrolled in a program to shield people who came to the country as young children. Juan Manuel Montes, 23, was entitled to be in the United States until Jan. 25, 2018 under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, according to Homeland Security, which broke from its position a day earlier that his status expired in August 2015 and wasn´t renewed.

Berkeley will remain a safe space for University of California students triggered by the presence of Ann Coulter on campus. Maybe. The university told its College Republicans chapter this week that it is “unable to find a safe and suitable” venue for Miss Coulter’s planned April 27 speech and accordingly canceled the event, a verdict the right-wing diva promptly vowed to ignore. The note from Vice Chancellor Scott Biddy said the cancellation was made in accord with the campus police. The university, once the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement, has also made official notice of threats against the Coulter speech.

A Russian journalist known for his criticism of President Vladimir Putin has died after being beaten by unknown attackers, it has been reported. Nikolai Andrushchenko, 73, who co-founded the Novy Petersburg newspaper, was attacked six weeks ago and had been in a coma since then. He died on Wednesday in St Petersburg. His attackers have not been identified but Novy Petersburg editor Denis Usov linked the assault to articles in the newspaper about corruption in the city. Andrushchenko was a member of the St Petersburg city council from 1990 until 1993. He made his name writing about human rights issues and

Russia has claimed it can disable the entire US Navy in one fell swoop using powerful electronic signal jamming. A news report from the country – where the media is essentially controlled by the state – said the technology could render planes, ships and missiles useless. The newsreader says: “Today, our Russian Electronic Warfare (REW) troops can detect and neutralise any target from a ship’s system and a radar, to a satellite.” The news report claims a single Russian war plane flew several times around American destroyer the USS Donald Cook in the Black Sea several years ago, disabling its systems and leaving it helpless.

North Korea’s nuclear arsenal has expanded to 30 warheads and will grow further as Pyongyang produces increased quantities of weapons-grade uranium and plutonium, according to estimates. In just three years, the North’s unpredictable leader, Kim Jong-un, will control sufficient fissile material to double that arsenal to as many as 60 weapons, says the Institute for Science and International Security in Washington. To underscore this alarming increase, the U.S. estimated that North Korea owned just one or two nuclear weapons in 1999 and would have 10 or more by 2020, according to a secret

A lawyer for Abror Azimov, who was arrested on Sunday, said he had admitted to being behind the blasts, the BBC reported. The April 3 attack killed 14 people and injured more than 50. Russia´s Federal Security Service, as cited by RIA news agency, identified Azimov as having been born in 1990 and hailing from Central Asia. He was the ninth person to have been detained on suspicion of having colluded with the bomber, Akbarzhon Jalilov, since the attack took place. Azimov has been accused of training Jalilov

When Bill O’Reilly left for vacation on April 11, he stressed that the break was pre-planned to counter the notion that it had something to do with with the New York Times’ revelation that five women were paid $13 million to settle harassment claims against him. A week later, it looks increasingly unlikely that he’ll ever return to his show. New York’s Gabriel Sherman reported on Tuesday afternoon that “the Murdochs are leaning toward announcing that O’Reilly will not return to the air,” according to three sources. Later that evening multiple outlets said support for O’Reilly is eroding within Fox News.

Speaking to Variety magazine (she graces the cover in a white t-shirt, motorcycle jacket and a lot of Photoshop work), Clinton says she’s definitely not interested in running for office, but if she were, she’d have to contend with American voters who stubbornly refuse to acknowledge exactly how much she and her family have contributed to their lives.

An article in the Guardian last week provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s. Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on

We’re told the details in the book, which depicts the campaign as inept, “could only have come from someone in the inner circle.” Dennis Cheng, the finance director of Clinton’s presidential campaign, has been sending out messages to determine where the leaks come from.
