Hillary Clinton. Still want her for President?

Postby NewYork, New York » Fri Apr 22, 4:19 pm

More news how politically corrupt Hillary Clinton and her team are.
Between the supposed "charity" they operate, The Clinton Foundation, and the company they keep,
how the hell does ANYONE want Hillary to be President?

Do the Clintons and their cronies actually care anything at all about the USA or its people?

Brother of Hillary’s Campaign Chief John Podesta Gets $140K Per Month to Lobby for Saudis

by AARON KLEIN21 Apr 2016641
TEL AVIV — The Saudi government has contracted the communications and strategy firm of Tony Podesta, the brother of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign chairman, John Podesta, paying the group $140,000 per month to work for Saudi interests in the U.S.

On Wednesday, the Washington Post reported:

The Saudi government and its affiliates have spent millions of dollars on U.S. law, lobby and public relations firms to raise the country’s visibility in the United States and before the United Nations at a crucial time.

And some of Washington’s premier law and lobby firms — including Podesta Group, BGR Government Affairs, DLA Piper and Pillsbury Winthrop — have been tasked with the job, according to a review of Justice Department filings.

The Post added some specifics about the Saudi contract with the Podesta Group but failed to report the significant detail that the firm’s owner, who is personally working on the Saudi account, is John Podesta’s brother. The Post only identified Tony Podesta as “a top Democratic lobbyist and major contributor to Hillary Clinton.”

Tony Podesta is a financial bundler for the Democratic Party, including Clinton’s campaigns.

The newspaper reported:

The lobby firm Podesta Group has an ongoing contract with the Center for Studies and Media Affairs at the Saudi Royal Court, a government entity, for $140,000 monthly. Barring any changes to the fee schedule, the year-long work would earn the firm $1.68 million by the end of 2016. The firm’s founder Tony Podesta, a top Democratic lobbyist and major contributor to Hillary Clinton, is working personally on the matter, according to a March filing. Podesta president Kim Fritts, a longtime Republican consultant and adviser to Jeb Bush, is listed on the contract, which the firm would not elaborate on.

John Podesta, meanwhile, is the founder of the Center for American Progress, the highly influential progressive think-tank. Prior to heading Clinton’s 2016 campaign, he served as counselor to the Obama White House.

This reporter previously documented that some of the CAP’s major corporate donors have also been listed as clients to Tony Podesta’s firm.

In 2013, I reported:

SourceWatch documents that Tony Podesta’s website previously listed the firm’s clients, which reportedly included Google.

Google is also a corporate donor to John Podesta’s PAC, it has been revealed.

Besides corporate clients, Tony Podesta has represented foreign governments, including Iraq and Egypt.

The Huffington Post reported that another CAP donor is the Livingston Group. Livingston is not currently listed on CAP’s donor page, but the Huffington Post said it was provided the donor list by CAP itself.

A cached version of the CAP donor page finds Livingston on the list.

Livingston provided a statement to the Hill saying it was the “interlocutor” of the donation, which was actually made by a mining company, Anglo American, a Livingston client.

“We didn’t make the contribution. The contribution was made by a client of ours. We were the interlocutor. That’s all. It was an honest mistake,” said the Livingston Group spokeswoman.

Until 2012, Livingston represented the Egyptian government with Tony Podesta’s firm.

The Washington Free Beacon reported in 2012 that Tony Podesta’s firm was among a group of 50 companies that toured Egypt under the rule of Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Morsi to open business ties with the new government. Numerous firms represented by Tony Podesta visited Egypt.

The Free Beacon reported:

Ten of the 50 companies present on the tour have been clients of lobbying firms separately run by Podesta’s brother and sister-in-law, leaving some observers wondering what role the Democratic insider may have played in determining which companies earned slots on the potentially lucrative junket.

One of the firms, The Podesta Group, is operated by Tony Podesta, who is John’s brother. The other, Heather Podesta + Partners, is run by John’s sister-in-law.

During the several-day jaunt, business leaders from the finance, defense, and aerospace sectors, among others, were exposed to investment opportunities in Egypt’s burgeoning public and private sectors.

Also on that Egypt trip was John Podesta, the Free Beacon reported.

I've come to the conclusion that ALL politicians are corrupt vermin!

They'd better hope that they can maintain the status quo! ... If things ever go badly tits up, the plebs won't be prepared to turn a blind eye to their antics!

Well, in the last few years they've been caught colluding with the police and media to persecute innocent people, torturing whomever they fancy, taking money from the rich to turn a blind eye to theft and extortion, letting the polic off for murder and maiming civilians, organising mass media propaganda against Opposition candidates they don't like, breaking their own tax laws, spying on absolutely everything we do and actually fucking kids

I think they can fairly conclude that nothing they do is ever going to get the masses up from their armchairs.

Not sure? Why not get on the bandwagon and vote for Andrew D. Basiago, a Seattle lawyer running for president. And because he's a time traveler he already knows he's going to win! You can't lose=)

Trump is not a very likable candidate. However, I am pretty sure he isn't a criminal.

Hillary on the other hand?

Bannon says, “This film must be seen by every liberal, progressive, and independent voter in America, and the world, to fully realize the degree to which the Clinton’s are nothing more than high class grifters”

Read below:


by BREITBART NEWS28 Apr 2016302
A new documentary film based on Peter Schweizer’s bestselling book “Clinton Cash” is premiering next month during the Cannes Film Festival. Watch the trailer above. The following is the press release about the film.

A Film Based on the Book the New York Times Called “The Most Feared Book of a Presidential Cycle” to Premiere at Cannes

Clinton Cash, a documentary based on the Peter Schweizer book the New York Times hailed as “the most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle,” will premiere at a special distributor screening at the Cannes Film Festival 2016.

Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich (published May 2015 by HarperCollins) dominated headlines for months as the New York Times, Washington Post, and Wall St. Journal and others confirmed the book’s investigative revelations of foreign donors and companies funneling tens of millions of dollars to Hillary and Bill Clinton. As Harvard Law School Professor Lawrence Lessig wrote in the Washington Post, “On any fair reading, the pattern of behavior that Schweizer has charged is corruption.”

Schweizer is editor-at-large of Breitbart News. The author of four New York Times bestsellers, including Clinton Cash, and Throw Them All Out, Schweizer’s investigative reporting has been covered by virtually every major U.S. media outlet, including: 60 Minutes, The New York Times, NPR, Wall Street Journal, ABC News, CNN, Forbes, Newsweek, Fox News, Politico, MSNBC, myriad others.

Clinton Cash investigates how Bill and Hillary Clinton went from being “dead broke” after leaving the White House to amassing a net worth of over $150 million, with $2 billion in donations to their foundation, wealth accumulated during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as Sec. of State through lucrative speaking fees and contracts paid for by foreign companies and Clinton Foundation donors.

Clinton Cash has been lauded by top progressives for its exposure of crony capitalism and self-enrichment. Jeffrey D. Sachs, Columbia University Earth Institute Director, called it “compelling reading on how Bill and Hillary have mixed personal wealth, power, and influence peddling.” Daily Beast columnist Eleanor Clift calls Schweizer “an equal-opportunity investigator, snaring Republicans as well as Democrats.” And Demos Senior Fellow Nomi Prins says Clinton Cash “provides a damning portrait of elite and circumspect power and influence.” The film was directed by M. A. Taylor.

Peter Schweizer, who says of the film, “Cronyism and self-enrichment are a bipartisan affair, and Hillary and Bill Clinton have perfected them on a global scale,” will be in Cannes.

Also attending is Stephen K. Bannon, writer and producer of Clinton Cash. Bannon, a former Goldman Sachs banker, is the Executive Chairman of Breitbart News and was dubbed by Bloomberg as “the Most Dangerous Political Operative in America.”

Bannon says, “This film must be seen by every liberal, progressive, and independent voter in America, and the world, to fully realize the degree to which the Clinton’s are nothing more than high class grifters”

BREITBART NEWS lost all credibility when they refused to back their own reporter. SMH fucking pathetic to throw her under the bus like that.


So the film is about how the Clintons screw people over with their speaking fees? They arent the first ones to do it nor will they be the last...

GW turned down a ground zero speech after we killed Bin Laden because he didn't want to be in the "spot light" only to go on and make 15 million in public speaking fees. (not counting book sales)

Or before my time.... When Ronnie Reagan charged Japan 2 million when he spoke over there...


LOL @ High Class Grifters.... thats the virtual definition of a politician lmao

Bullshit they should have arrested her for running through the secret service into a no-go zone. She was lucky she didn't get body slammed. For all the whining she did you would have thought she was covering ISIS in Syria.

lol but the fact that they didn't speaks for itself. Both the charge and body slam... lmao.
(lets take into account his SS detail wasn't even the ones to assault her it was a campaign MANAGER lol... So was the manager able to determine a threat quicker than the security detail? or did they not see her as a threat?)
The US secret service wouldn't comment on the situation yet a member of Trump's SS detail did. Talk about bullshit? sure smells like it.
all that being said... you don't think an assault took place? You really think what happened was justified?


btw....

I don't think any reasonable person wants Clinton as president...but given how corrupt or political system is... she's pretty much a shoe in.

Trust me they wanted to charge him but she was the one who broke into a zone the press was not allowed to be in first. The video evidence is there for all to see. She had no case and she looked like a lightweight complaining about a little scuffle in that rough and tumble industry. Was she assaulted? Yes according to the law any unwanted touch is assault I think. Charges? No definitely not.

This is the truth. I'm holding my nose and voting for her given the choice of candidates from the other side and some of the insane ideology they spew.

So you are willing to vote for someone corrupt enough to make you hold your nose when voting? Do you sometimes order food from a restaurant knowing the food you ordered was rotten, because it was the least nauseating item on the menu? You think that is pragmatic? Why don't you try to be true to anyone that you actually support and respect, and write their name in. You would be honest and true to yourself. Are you afraid your vote won't be meaningful if you don't pick from the final two on voting day? I thought you had more integrity. Your vote will be for someone and something you find very objectionable. Shame. My vote will be for someone I support, whether or not they "have a chance."

You make a really good point Hammer.
Personally I am wondering what exactly the greater of 3 evils is.
1. Wasting my vote in the name of ethics and good conscience by writing in a candidate.
2. Casting a vote for a candidate that I fear might screw us eventually in order to avoid electing a candidate I know would screw us immediately.
3. Us. The widespread destructive attitudes and malevolence in our voting population that would bring these types of conflicts and stark, painful choices into every election cycle.

I'm not sure voting for one asshole to help keep a bigger asshole out of office should be enough to question my integrity but whatever. I've been voting for the lesser of two evils since 1973.

I bet you don't do that when ordering food in a restaurant. So in 43 years, you have never voted as a show of your support for any candidate? Just for the one whose evil is less than another? You might try it sometime. You'll feel much more honest and proud that you didn't vote for the smaller turd.

I think you're over analyzing and making assumptions based on a few flippant Internet comments. How's the view from your high horse?
I don't eat at restaurants with only two items on the menu. If I did I'd choose the item I liked best out of the two. What would you do, just go hungry?

If you have read the news reports, Clinton should be sued for election fraud.
He was literally steps away from the polling booths, shaking hands and telling folks
to vote for Hillary.

If one has ever voted, even once, we all know the politicians are not allowed within 150 feet
(if not more) of the polling place.

What if you were told you were being killed, by hanging, or by firing squad. Would you feel compelled to pick one?
