Valley-Based Investment Firm

Washington Free Beacon, by Nick Bolger

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/19/2017 3:32:35 PM

A Silicon Valley investment firm has hired Chelsea Clinton´s husband as its new vice chairman. Marc Mezvinsky began his work for the firm, Social Capital, in April a spokesperson said, according to Bloomberg. Social Capital founder Chamath Palihapitiya said Mezvinsky´s role will be to build relationships between the firm and governments, investors, and companies. "I have seen firsthand his ability to think strategically and engage equally well with both CEOs and engineers. He has a common touch which is rare for someone with such deep experiences and relationships in politics, finance and philanthropy," Palihapitiya said of Mezvinsky. The son-in-law of Bill

Hmmm, right, Chamath. And we´ve seen first-hand his ability to shrink capital rapidly.

I see that Mezvinsky´s ties to the Clinton Foundation and big dollar donars is what drives this relationship. It´s always about $$, and Mezvinsky investment business was a failure in judgement...not all the bonifides attributed to him by his new boss, Chamath Palihapitiya. Follow the money and political connections.

Who in the name of sanity believes one word of this? This loser married a babe who is dumber than a stalk of broccoli. His business success has magically diappeared probably because there aren´t any more successful ventures for the feckless Mark than there are any contributions or successful ventures that can be attributed to his profoundly homely wife who is noted for being a total zero. All this is cover for a way for the led-by-the-nose Mark who spends most of his time traveling to visit daddy who is in prison for his business sucess. What a crock.

Free Beacon adds this to what is essentially a republish of Bloomberg’s report:

The Washington Free Beacon warned readers in 2015 not to give money to Mezvinsky´s Eaglevale, citing reports that he was not very good at his job. One of the fund´s most embarrassing moments, which certainly contributed to the decision to close the fund, came because of a bet Mezvinsky took on the Greek economy that ended up costing investors nearly $25 million.

Tends to put Marco in proper perspective.

Please don´t ever again associate it with Chelsea Clinton. Thank you.

I have to wonder how much it cost Bill and Hill to get their son in law a job. He could always get a job walking dogs in Manhattan. He´s had practice walking around with Chelsea.

The Addams Family TV show had a family headed by Gomez Adams, who took pleasure when stock prices fell.
Marc must have been a fan of Gomez Addams.

Note the nature of Marc´s new job. He is selling his access to rich people, via the Clinton Foundation.
(He deserves a reward, though - he has to wake up each morning looking at that creature.)

Many in the media are working with progressive interests to undermine and remove the president by using mass manipulation cloaked as reporting, according to five-time Emmy Award winner, author and investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson. “Transactional journalism” is clinically defined by Attkisson as “reporters making inappropriate deals with the people they’re reporting on,” the phenomenon seems more like political warfare to those with an ideological lens. Attkisson swims in the waters she writes and speaks of as the feature of her own Sunday investigative show, “Full Measure,” and a former CBS investigative reporter.

Because of left-wing outrage and media obsession, the nation has focused on whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russians to influence the American election. In the hype and hysteria, we have been distracted from an obvious issue. If, as the Obama Administration claimed, the Russians merely wanted to undermine American trust in the democratic process, would not they work both sides against each other? It is looking more and more like that may be the case. To understand the tangled details around Donald Trump, Jr.´s meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, we first have to examine the Magnitsky Act. That

The Marine Forces Reserve has released the identities and photographs of 16 military personnel who were killed in a plane crash in Mississippi this week. The military plane, a KC-130, was traveling from Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in North Carolina when it spiraled into a soybean field about 4 p.m. Monday, spreading debris for miles and resulting in fiery wreckage that burned for hours. While the KC-130 refueling tanker took off from Cherry Point, the plane was under the command of the 4th Marine Air Wing, which is part of the Marine Forces Reserve headquartered in New Orleans.

The Trump campaign and fundraising committees raised $13.9 million between the start of April and the end of June. The numbers are close to three quarters of a million more than in the first three months of 2017.

The campaign and two joint fundraising committees (Trump Victory and the Trump Make America Great Again Committee) fundraised for both Trump and the Republican National Committee. Three donations stood out in the most recent numbers from the Federal Election

Jim Himes of Connecticut introduced the Free Press Act on Thursday, a legislative proposal that aims to increase transparency within the Trump administration by mandating two on-camera press briefings per week. “The White House has begun to dramatically, and in an historically unprecedented way, reduce the media and therefore the American people’s access to the thinking of the president,” Mr. Himes said in a statement. “And that’s not healthy.”

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has told governors from across the US to ditch the "America First" motto. His National Governors´ Association speech in Rhode Island on Friday was a first for a Canadian prime minister. In his speech, Mr Trudeau urged US governors to embrace their neighbour to the north and avoid protectionism. It is all a part of his aggressive strategy to promote a "thinner border" ahead of vital trade talks with the US renegotiating the Nafta treaty.

It wouldn’t have taken much for Hillary Clinton to prevail on Election Night. Donald Trump won the presidency with razor-thin margins of less than 1 percent in three states that had gone Democratic in the previous five elections — Michigan by 10,000 votes, Wisconsin by 22,000 and Pennsylvania by 34,000. Yes, if only she hadn’t run what was likely the worst presidential campaign in our lifetimes, Hillary Clinton could have stitched together around 80,000 votes and could have been sitting in the Oval Office right now. The interesting question is: How would America in July 2017 be different under a President Clinton rather

WASHINGTON — The Republican-led House decisively approved a defense policy bill on Friday that declares climate change a national security threat, demands rigorous oversight of the Pentagon’s cyber operations and rejects the Trump administration’s bid to close military bases. Lawmakers voted 344-81 on Friday to pass the sweeping legislation. The bill authorizes $696 billion in defense spending for the 2018 fiscal year, including nearly $30 billion more for core Pentagon operations than President Donald Trump requested. Yet defense hawks pushing the hardest for the big boost in spending still face an uphill battle. For the spending increases to materialize, Congress

Why indeed? Obamacare was passed in 2009 without a single Republican vote. Everyone who paid attention to its details knew it was designed to fail, miserably. Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber bragged about how getting it passed depended on the stupidity of the American people. But people would not be able to keep their own doctors as promised. No one´s premiums went down by $2,500. They all went up and up and up.Those who are paying for it cannot afford to use it because the deductibles are too high.
