Next President of the United Fates of America
Marco, Marco, Marco!

The rest in her pack don't even exist.

I see no Presidential hopeful who has all the answers.
I see many who have none.

Cruz is unelectable.
Paul just doesn't get it, and if he were to get elected, he'd soon be in every bit as much trouble as Obama, but for different reasons. His bid will fall apart at the hands of the press.

Don't think anyone who gets elected isn't gonna be put to an enormous test.
The world seems ready to explode, and very soon will. That should be the one question each should have to answer.

BREAKING: 3-Star US General Drops Felony Bombshell Against Hillary Clinton

Quote:Despite the best efforts of the mainstream media to keep details under wraps, virtually everyone knows by now about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account on a private server to conduct official government business.

This is almost certainly a violation of the Federal Records Act, which essentially requires all official government and public business and documents, such as emails, be stored and held by the government.

Further complicating matters, Hillary used her own private unsecured Blackberry device to conduct official State Department business while overseas, potentially putting herself and America’s national security interests at risk of being hacked by enemies of the United States.

On top of that, retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, says that it is “very likely” that Hillary’s private email server was hacked by China and Russia, and possibly even Iran and North Korea.

That means that there is a “very high” probability that state secrets and national security details have been seen and shared by nations with hostile interests towards the U.S.

According to Western Journalism, this lack of concern for national security as well as established procedures, shows that Hillary Clinton should not be trusted and therefore should never be elected President.

We couldn’t agree more, and think that Hillary’s scandalous and probably felonious behavior should preclude her from holding any sort of office of public trust in the future.

In truth, Hillary should be prosecuted, not president. Hopefully, a majority of the American electorate feels the same way, and Hillary’s impending presidential campaign will end just as quickly as it starts, and dishonorably at that.

Who do you want answering the phone at two in the morning?

Quote:The world seems ready to explode, and very soon will.
That should be the one question each should have to answer.

"What are you gonna do when it does?"

We may not have many choices in the political realm-- United Fates of America --
Personal health is an issue for the individual.
Keeping health above the bottom line is the one thing that will help resilience in the face of chaos,
when the world shit hits the fan.
We are all getting older Whip and less resilient.
Many of us have recurring health issues,
and mine keep getting more frequent, and more noticeable.

Quote:I think age will become a issue in this election.

Age is becoming an issue period,
but indeed, the Hillary Syndrome is a conflaguration of bad political mistakes,
and questionable health issues that may come to the forefront.

The labor and stress of a presidential candidacy with all the travel,
and the news press hammering you incessantly ...
I also wonder about Hillary's capacity to endure the process over the next year.

But then look at the fossil McCain -- running for another term at 78 years old.
So maybe Hillary can linger long through the health issues,
but a health watch is in order on the Clinton candidacy.

Looking at the international scene, most of the leaders look like shit as well, 
rapidly aging and decaying,
not a lot of young blood leading the world.
Putin still maintains a solid media presence but even he is starting to show the wear-n-tear,
and the Chinese leader Xi Jinping looks the healthiest and most vibrant,
though Obama has held his own other than some white hair.
Joe Biden is 72 years old.

How Old Is Too Old for President? Depends Who’s Running

Quote:And before Mr. Dole, it was Ronald Reagan (age 69 at his first inauguration)
who Democrats suggested might be too old to be president.

Quote:With the 2016 presidential election looming, however,
it is Democrats who appear likely to be supporting an older presidential candidate.

Hillary Clinton would be 69 years old if she took office
and would presumably face a younger Republican candidate if she won the Democratic nomination.

As expected, Democrats are now starting to feel more positively toward older candidates:
The new Pew poll found that only 44 percent
said they would be less likely to support a presidential candidate who is 70 or above,
a decrease of 16 percentage points from the 2007 poll —
a drop that Pew called “particularly notable”
relative to the smaller decreases observed among Republicans

A Hypocritical War Monger
Hillary: a Disaster in the Making

Hillary: A Disaster in the Making               

One longs for a candidate for president of the United States possessing those rare traits of statesmanship, honesty and integrity. One looks back in vain to see such an example, and the near and far horizons offer no such hope, either.

We will take no time looking at the GOP (Generally Opposed to Progress) candidates, either announced or still keeping everyone on the edge of their seats as they ‘decide’ whether or not to toss their hat into the soon-to-be-crowded ring. Most, including Florida Governor and brother of one of the nation’s worst presidents ever, Jeb Bush, and New Jersey Governor, the obnoxious blowhard Chris Christie, have already decided, but enjoy the spectacle of endless conjecture. So they wait.

But on the Democratic side, no less a worthy than Hillary Rodham Clinton, lawyer, former First Lady, former senator, former Secretary of State, has slow-balled her tattered hat into an otherwise empty ring. Her handlers claim, disingenuously, that she expects competition, and a hard-fought primary campaign. Who, one wants to know, is going to take her on? She has a war chest rumored to hold $2.5 billion, more than twice what Republican Mitt Romney and Democrat Barack Obama each spent on their campaigns in 2012; the total is more than their campaign expenditures combined. The only other potential candidate with anything close to her name recognition is Vice President Joe Biden, and it will be impossible for him to generate the puzzling enthusiasm that seems to follow Mrs. Clinton. And there does not appear to be anyone waiting in the wings to grab the spotlight from her, as Mr. Obama did in 2008.

So, while her various aides struggle to avoid any appearance of invincibility, let us all make the assumption that Mrs. Clinton will be the nominee, and work from there. What possible objections can anyone from the moderate to liberal political philosophy spectrum have to her nomination? Well, this writer asks: how much time do you have?

In the interest of time, let’s just look at a single area; there will be plenty of time to discuss others as the relentless torture session known as a U.S. political campaign drags on.

One of the most horrific oppressions of people currently happening in the world today is being perpetrated by Israel on the people of Palestine. Now, before anyone says that this is a complex, decades-old problem, and Mrs. Clinton can’t be blamed for not solving it, we question these statements, and at the same time object to her worsening of the situation. And, when one looks at her four years as Secretary of State, one can, indeed, blame her for not resolving the situation. Some facts:

* Clinton is beholden to AIPAC (American Israel Political Affairs Committee), and takes her disgraceful, self-appointed obligation to that lobby group more seriously than she does human rights. During her stint as Secretary of State, she blocked every effort Palestinians made at the United Nations to achieve recognition; these successful efforts to thwart the self-determination of an oppressed people win the kudos of AIPAC. She has spoken of Israel in almost romantic terms: “Protecting Israel’s future is not simply a question of policy for me, it’s personal,” she said in 2013, discussing various visits she has made to that apartheid land. She regularly worships at the AIPAC altar.

* In 2014, as Israel was using U.S.-provided weaponry, some of it illegal under international law, to carpet-bomb the beleaguered and blockaded Gaza Strip, Mrs. Clinton had nothing but praise for Israeli Prime Murderer Benjamin Netanyahu. She further echoed the tired old line about Israel’s ‘right to defend itself’ from rocket fire, as if an occupied nation does not have an internationally-recognized right to fight its occupier. One must note that, during 55 days in the summer of 2014, Israel fired more rockets into the Gaza Strip than Gaza fired into Israel in the previous 14 years. Additionally, Dr. Norman Finkelstein, the son of Holocaust survivors and an outspoken critic of Israel (he is no longer allowed in that country), calls those ‘rockets’ fired from Gaza ‘enhanced fire works’. No one refers to the advanced weaponry the U.S. gives to Israel in such terms.

*During her last campaign for the presidency, she stated that, if Iran attacked her beloved Israel with nuclear weapons, the U.S., under her presidency would attack Iran and could ‘totally obliterate’ it. One must take her at her word, since she voted to authorize the invasion of Iraq, a nation that in no way threatened the U.S., and in which over half the population was under the age of 15. So she would, one assumes, not hesitate to invade Iran, a nation with twice the population of Iraq, if it, too, did nothing to threaten the U.S.

So why, one wonders, is there so much enthusiasm among Democrats for a woman who, by all accounts, is a hypocritical war-monger, who is more motivated to enhance her own bottom line than to serve the cause of human rights? What is it that draws adoring crowds to her? Perhaps people are seduced by the idea of another first: they elected the first African-American president, so why not follow it up with the first woman president? Maybe it is her resume, which is, indeed, impressive. But any job-seeker will highlight notable job titles on their resume, but once at the interview, may have difficulty pointing to any real accomplishments. The voters, as interviewers, should take a close look at what achievements, if any, Mrs. Clinton has to support those remarkable job titles. They will find little.

But what is all this, when the candidate is surrounded by the magic of invincibility, the aura of newness, and represents the final shattering of the glass ceiling? Does she not deserve the presidency, for all her hard work, regardless of the lack of any real accomplishment? Don’t we, the voters, owe her this?

No, we don’t. She isn’t fit to serve in any capacity in government, due to the reasons detailed above, in addition to many others (stay tuned). In this case it is the empress, not the emperor, who has new clothes, only seen by Democrats stricken with some sudden myopia that prevents them from seeing the reality of her accomplishments which, like the new clothes, simply don’t exist.

One can generally rely on the Republicans to nominate a worse candidate than the Democrats; one hesitates to say the Democrat is usually better, since we are not operating in a ‘good, better, best’ zone here; far beneath it, unfortunately. But this time around, there may simply be no ‘lesser of two evils’ choice to make. And the U.S. will provide yet another tragedy for the country, and the world.

Hillary Clinton Is Grooming A Former Goldman Banker To Become America's Next Treasury Secretary
Quote:For years on end, many wondered how it is possible that Gary Gensler allowed Wall Street firms to manipulate, rig, and otherwise abuse the US commodity market which he, as head of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission from 2009 until 2014, was supposed to regulate.

Some, such as this website, suggested that what Gensler was doing was simply protecting his former colleagues from civil or criminal investigation and prosecution. After all Gensler is far better known for not only having worked at Goldman Sachs for 18 years most recently as co-head of finance, prior to joining the CFTC, but for becoming the youngest ever Goldman partner, at the tender age of 30.

Certainly, being the wealthiest member of the original Obama administration did not hurt: in 2009 the Wasingtonian reported his net assets as being between $15,533,000 and $61,745,000. We take the higher number. To be sure, he had been paid well at Goldman and now had a duty to his former employer: to keep Goldman (or any other Wall Street bank) off the hook of any regulatory investigation.

Overnight, this speculation was confirmed, and further explained why Gensler handled his former Wall Street colleagues with silk gloves: according to Bloomberg, "Hillary Clinton is planning to name Gary Gensler... as the chief financial officer of her campaign, according to a Democrat familiar with the decision." And as hard as we try when reading the Bloomberg assertion that Gensler was "a strong advocate for strict Wall Street rules", we can't help but burst in laughter.

The humorous spin continues:
For Clinton, who has been fighting her left flank’s concern that she is too cozy with Wall Street, Gensler is a notable hire. He became known as someone with sharp elbows —even during his negotiations within the Obama administration—in his push for tighter regulation.

Actually, the only thing he became known for is avoiding any notable charges against any banks that involved more than a wrist slap, and certainly against Goldman: the same Goldman which alongside JPMorgan tried and almost succeeded to corner the physical aluminum (and countless other markets) and become a commodity cartel, a charge Wall Street's banks are currently fighting in court.

But what is most amusing is how he fits in with the faux populism exhibited by Hillary. As Bloomberg notes "during her first visit to Iowa as a newly minted presidential candidate on April 14, Clinton struck a populist tone, saying "there’s something wrong when hedge fund managers pay less in taxes than nurses or the truckers I saw on I-80," a reference to her two-day roadtrip to the state from New York.  "I think it’s fair to say that if you look across the country, the deck is stacked in favor of those already at the top," the former secretary of state told a roundtable at Kirkwood Community College."

It got so bad a member of the Hillary SuperPAC almost caused the entire staff of CNBC to burst out in laughter when she said that "Hillary is certainly making it clear that she is running as a champion for everyday Americans. People who are looking how to get by, get ahead, stay ahead."

Rubio catches Bush

a new Mason-Dixon survey
finds Rubio now runs even with the state's former governor, Jeb Bush Whip

Rubio picks up 31 percent of the vote to Bush's 30 percent,
well within the five-point margin of error.
Previous polling had shown Bush running well ahead in the Sunshine State.

Quote:At the New Hampshire GOP summit, Bush sought to strike a forward-looking tone.

"We will not win if we just complain about how bad things are," Bush said.
"We also have to offer a compelling alternative
so that more and more and more people join our cause."

But his biggest selling point was the eight years he spent as Florida's top executive,
saying his record is an
"I'm-not-kidding conservative one."

Jeb Bush: I'm as conservative as any governor of past 20 years

Quote:There are only 2 gold mining permits in Haiti. The first one in 50 years just got issued, to presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s brother Guess paying for that was where our disaster donations dissapeared

Hillary Clinton’s brother landed lucrative gold-mining permit in Haiti after Bill Clinton helped country recover from earthquake devastation
•Book due out in May describes alleged sweetheart deal that netted VCS Mining a gold concession that hadn’t been issued to anyone in 50 years
•Tony Rodham, Mrs. Clinton’s brother, sat on the company’s board
•Another board member co-chaired a relief effort with former President Bill Clinton following a devastating 2010 earthquake
•‘Clinton Cash’ is the latest from Peter Schweizer, who turned heads in 2011 with an expose about insider trading by members of Congress

An unusual nexus of mining interests, relief work in Haiti, and a former U.S. first family
is raising new ethics questions that could affect Hillary Clinton’s presidential ambitions.

Clinton’s brother, Tony Rodham, was a board member of a North Carolina mining company
that enjoyed prime access to Haitian gold deposits in the wake of post-earthquake relief work organized in part by former president Bill Clinton through the Clinton Foundation.

Another board member of the firm, VCS Mining, was former Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive, who co-chaired the charitable Interim Haiti Recovery.

The revelation, smacking of cronyism and back-room government dealing, is part of a forthcoming book by Government Accountability Institute founder Peter Schweizer, whose work exposing the investment
‘insider trading’ habits of members of Congress caused national outrage in 2011 even though the practice was legal.

‘Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses
Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,’ his latest book, will go on sale May 5.

At the time VCS Mining’s ‘gold exploitation permit’ was awarded
, according to a press release from the company, it was one of only two firms to get one. The Haitian government hadn’t issued such a permit in more than 50 years.

Breitbart News first reported on the investigative nonfiction book’s coming release.

The January 2010 Haiti earthquake killed more than 100,000 people and affected more than 3 million. That disaster was followed nine months later by a cholera epidemic of historic proportions.

The Clinton Foundation raised at least $36 million to help
, according to its website.

I caught a few moments on CNN this morning
with Fareed Zacharia Whip
and he had David Brooks on his show talking about the Republicans in New Hampshire.

Brooks had some interesting comments,
but to sum it up,
he tallied his summation of the credible candidates
as they play their political poker faces in New Hampshire.

Brooks chose 3 of the Republicans in clear 1-2-3 order,
Rubio as his number one choice Hmm2
that idiot Walker Whip as number two,
and Bush as the distant third place hopeful. Rofl

All the rest he just swept under the carpet as dust not worth the garbage can.

Relationship Sours Between Bush And Rubio As GOP Primary Heats Up

Quote:Sparks are going to fly,"  :SJ:
said Al Cardenas,
a Bush adviser who is also close to Rubio.
"For the first time in our country's history Guitar
you've got two guys from the same town
in the same state  Whip
from same party running in the same primary."

He added: "You can bet that regardless of how nice Jeb or Marco wants to be,
their staffs are going to do anything they can to win."

In public, mentor Bush and protege Rubio have avoided criticizing each other
since Rubio announced his candidacy.

But Bush allies have started quietly spreading negative information about Rubio's record.

Also, supporters of the two Miami politicians are drawing contrasts between Rubio,
a 43-year-old son of Cuban immigrants, and 62-year-old Bush,
a member of one of the nation's most powerful political dynasties.

I also watched Fareed this morning.

We're going to have a president after Obama (hopefully), and not martial law sometime before his tour is over.

Rand Paul is the Riddler

The drone questions Rand Paul isn’t ready to ask

Quote:Do officials even know who’s being targeted by the drone strikes themselves?
These are questions that deserve answers, 
and given his background and purported areas of concern, 
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) 
seems like the kind of policymaker to ask them. 

As of yesterday, however, the Republican presidential candidate had very little to say. 

Dave Weigel reported:
Paul avoided the more public entrances to the Senate floor, 
the places where reporters are typically able to grab senators for quotes. 

Initially, his Senate office said via e-mail that he would not have an immediate response to the killings. 
At 1:54 p.m., his campaign sent over a statement. 
“It is a tragedy that these Americans lost their lives,” said Paul. 
“My prayers and thoughts are with their families.”

Minutes later, 
Paul’s Senate office sent over a slightly different statement, 
clarifying that he was talking about the American hostage, Warren Weinstein. 

He did not address the killings of Ahmed Farouq and Adam Gadahn, 
two American citizens who had joined al-Qaeda and were killed in drone strikes.

It was hard not to notice how far the Kentucky senator has traveled since 2013. 
He used to go out on a limb on this issue, and now, he’s clearly climbed back.

It was just two years ago that Rand Paul was at the center of a lengthy spectacle on the Senate floor, 
speaking for nearly 13 hours about U.S. drone policy. 

Taking advantage of John Brennan’s CIA nomination, the GOP lawmaker demanded to know, 
“Does the president have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American 
not engaged in combat on American soil?”
The Justice Department responded a day later with a one-sentence reply – no, 
the president does not have the authority – and Paul said he was satisfied.
But Paul’s interest in the issue continued. 
Two months later, he said drone strikes as part of a counter-terrorism policy 
are at odds with the American system of due process. 
In May 2014, the senator railed against a presidential judicial nominee, again over drones.
He then quietly started shifting his posture. 

In fact, exactly one year ago yesterday, 
Rand Paul said on Fox News that he’s comfortable with the executive branch 
having the authority to use drones on Americans over U.S. soil Rofl
if an administration perceives an “imminent threat.” 

The senator even went so far as to say, 
“If someone comes out of a liquor store with a weapon and 50 dollars in cash, 
I don’t care if a drone kills him or a policeman kills him.” :yaaahhh:
The Republican tried to walk that back soon after, though his explanation was woefully incomplete.
And now, a year later, Paul seems eager to avoid the subject altogether. 

The Gay Penguin --- Ted Cruz sucks up with rich Jews

Why Are Two Wealthy Gay Men Hosting a Benefit for Ted Cruz?  ---> Israel.

Quote:If you’ve ever been to Fire Island Pines, 
one of the leading gay utopias on the planet, 
you know that there isn’t much to do. 
There’s only one commercial center with a couple of stores, a bar, and a hotel.

And yet, in less than 24 hours, 
over 4,000 people have said they’re going to boycott it. 

The reason? It’s owned by Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass, 
the self-described 
“prominent NYC hotel owners” who recently hosted a “fireside chat” 
with Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz.


The first question many people must be asking themselves is, 
what the hell were Reisner and Weiderpass thinking? 
In the words of gay performer and humorist Justin Sayre, who is supporting the boycott, 
“Of all the people in the world to invite to a gay party, 
Ted Cruz? 
What was it? 
His sparkling wit? Whip
His fair and balanced repartee? Whip 
Do you have a thing for Canadians? Whip
Does he make a mean gin rickey?” Whip

Not quite. In a self-serving press release, the two said they “ignited a dialogue” on the issue.

But that’s not it either. 
In fact, before the backlash hit, 
they told the New York Times the real reason for the event:

Mr. Reisner and Kalman Sporn, 
who advises Mr. Cruz’s Middle East team and served as the moderator for the evening,
 said the senator told the group that marriage should be left up to the states. 

The evening focused primarily on foreign policy, 
including a discussion of gay rights in Israel versus the rest of the Middle East, 
and opposition to President Obama.

Notice who the moderator was: 
Ted Cruz’s Jewish/Israel point man, himself a gay Jewish man and longtime Republican consultant.

Nor was this the first time Ian Reisner has hosted a Republican benefit at his home for that reason. 

Shamelessly invoking the Holocaust, 
Reisner said at the time that his great aunt “was murdered in Auschwitz” 
and that 
“we are not too far from history to be wary of politicians who make bad decisions that threaten our lives. 
The deal with Iran concerns me. 
Anti-Semitic murder in Paris and Copenhagen concerns me." 

Reisner is hardly alone in this regard. 
Gay porn king Michael Lucas 
has been outspoken in his support of Israel’s right-wing government, 
going so far as to bully New York’s LGBT Center 
into banning a pro-Palestinian group from meeting there. 

(After a yearlong brouhaha, the Center banned both pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian groups.) Rofl

at Reisner’s event, 
Lucas has often “discussed” the contrast between 
“gay rights in Israel versus the rest of the Middle East.” 

This is what’s known as pinkwashing, 
the highlighting of Israel’s excellent record on LGBT equality 
as a way of defending its totally unrelated policies regarding Palestine or Iran.

In other words, 
what happened in that penthouse 
was part of a much larger pattern of gay Jewish Republicans putting LGBT civil rights aside,
-----> and putting Israel First.

This, basically, 
is what Reisner has been saying in his recent press blitz. 
On Facebook, he said that “for my entire adult life, 
I have been an ardent supporter and activist for gay rights and LGBT organizations worldwide. 
I was given the opportunity to have a candid conversation with Senator Ted Cruz 
on where he stood on issues including the state of Israel and national security, 
which are the only places where we share common ground.”

Jeb Bush

Jeb Bush had a paleo-friendly power luncheon at the ‘21’ Club Friday afternoon 
during a New York fund-raising trip.

The presumptive GOP presidential candidate has reportedly lost 
a whopping 30 pounds  Nibble
in the run-up to an expected campaign run.

The weight loss has come via a “paleo diet” and workouts.
At ‘21,’ we’re told Bush and his party dined on kale salad, 
grilled halibut and asparagus, as well as roasted pineapple for dessert.

Jeb Bush distances himself from James Baker

Quote:Jeb Bush on Thursday sought to distance himself from former Secretary of State James Baker, 
one of his foreign policy advisers,
saying in a closed-door meeting that he doesn't believe Baker 
should have recently addressed the liberal-leaning Israel advocacy group J Street.
He also pledged that his foreign policy team will also consist of younger experts, 
according to two attendees.

Baker made waves with controversial comments 
that were strongly critical of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, 
and Bush has come under fire from conservatives since then 
for not denouncing Baker's remarks or his appearance before the group. 
Baker was secretary of state under former President George H.W. Bush, Jeb Bush's father.

After Baker's J Street speech, 
Bush came under pressure from prominent conservatives 
-- including Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson -- 
who wanted Bush to strongly speak out against Baker's comments.

Baker recently told CNN's Fareed Zakaria that he will be "working hard for Jeb Bush."

Walker hits back at Rubio over whether a governor can be ready for presidency

Quote:Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker hit back Saturday 
at potential GOP presidential rival Marco Rubio 
over the Florida senator's charge 
that there's "no way" a governor can be ready for president when it comes to foreign policy.

I think he's questioning how Ronald Reagan was ready," 
the Wisconsin Republican told reporters after speaking at an event for Iowa Rep. David Young in Urbandale.

Walker argued that, in his lifetime, Reagan "was the most impactful" president on foreign policy, 
while President Barack Obama "shows as a first-term senator, 
(he) isn't prepared to lead, or at least is not in the case of Barack Obama."

Rubio, in a meeting with the Des Moines Register's editorial board on Saturday, 
highlighted his experience on the Senate Foreign Relations committee, 
and pointed to his background as a state legislator and House speaker in Florida 
as proof that he was more qualified than Obama was during his first campaign.

"I believe that I can take over on Day One as President, 

prepared to lead this country in the most crucial obligation the President faces, 
as commander in chief," Rubio said. 

"Governors can certainly read about foreign policy, 
and take briefings and meet with experts, 
but there is no way they'll be ready on Day One to manage U.S. foreign policy."

Quote:Hillary's Staff Is Asking 'Why Is She Still Taking Foreign Donations?'

As American voters continue to digest the growing scandal regarding donations to the Clinton Foundation and possible quid pro quos coming from the Hillary Clinton-run State Department questions and criticism of her actions are coming from unusual sources including the left-wing media, and even Clinton campaign staffers.

On Sunday's Meet the Press host Chuck Todd revealed comments he heard the night before at the White House Correspondents dinner.
Quote:“Eight years ago, Democrats were hammering publicly about this. This time they are doing it privately. I heard an earful last night from various Democrats, some who work in the Clinton campaign that said, ‘Why is she still taking foreign donations? Why is the foundation -- they narrowed it down, okay now they are only going to take them from some European countries in Canada. They got rid of some of the despot states. That’s the stuff that boggles the mind.’  But they’re afraid of speaking out.”

On ABC's This Week, host and former Clinton operative George Stephanopoulis seemed shocked when Bloomberg Politics editor and political analyst for the progressive MSNBC Mark Halperin opined that the charges against Hillary were very serious even if no other bombshells are forthcoming. 

Quote:Halperin: It's extraordinarily serious: Imagine if an Assistant Secretary of State had done what Hillary Clinton-- what we know Hillary did. They would be out of the State Dept.
Stephanopoulis: What things?
Halperin: Co-mingling of a family foundation, donations from foreign governments, increased speech fees, and government actions.
Stephanopoulis: No evidence of government actions.
Halperin: We know there were government actions taken, what we don't know --and this goes to the deleted emails-- is what kind of interaction did Hillary Clinton have on her private email account regarding her husband's speeches and Foundation activities involving foreign donations.
If they hadn't been so careless at the Foundation, if she hadn't deleted the emails, if they put somebody out on this show today to answer these questions, I think a lot of this could be put to rest, but none of those things are true.


Halprerin's colleague at Bloomberg Politics and MSNBC John Heilemann agreed with Halperin and tied this scandal to Ms. Clinton's recent email controversy
Quote:"That is a question that has not been addressed, and she should answer that question, I think, because it goes to the core of whether there was the appearance of an obstruction of justice activity on her part by getting rid of that email server."
Note: the full conversation can be found in the embedded video below.
In a related story, the Clinton Foundation admitted today that its recording of contributions by Frank Giustra was unintentionally less than transparent. Along with supporting the Clinton Foundation, Giustra was, according to the NY Times, a key figure in the a deal which ended up allowing Russia to own a significant portion of the United State's uranium supply. A deal that needed approval from different segments of the U.S. federal government including Hillary Clinton's State Department. 
The Foundation's statement reads in part:
Quote:Like every contributor to the Foundation, the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership (Canada) is publicly listed as a donor on our website. But as it is a distinct Canadian organization, separate from the Clinton Foundation, its individual donors are not listed on the site. This is hardly an effort on our part to avoid transparency – unlike in the U.S., under Canadian law; all charities are prohibited from disclosing individual donors without prior permission from each donor.
I also want to address questions regarding our 990 tax forms. We have said that after a voluntary external review is completed we will likely refile forms for some years.  While some have suggested that this indicates a failure to accurately report our total revenue, that is not the case. Our total revenue was accurately reported on each year's form – our error was that government grants were mistakenly combined with other donations. Those same grants have always been properly listed and broken out and available for anyone to see on our audited financial statements, posted on our website.
It's interesting that an American charity run by a former U.S. President would blame Canadian law for the lack of transparency.

Quote:Inglorious Goobers – Progressives Line Up to Defend Clinton Corruption

It’s amusing to see how our staunch progressives — who believe so deeply in a level playing field and fair play, who railed so vociferously against crony capitalism back in Bush-Time — are now twisting themselves in knots to dismiss the stories about that long-festering font of corruption, the Clinton Foundation.
Suddenly, what was once evil and corrosive — peddling elite insider influence for private profit — is just old hat, no big deal, business as usual. Indeed, Digby, the very avatar of “anguished support” (Tarzie’s deeply apt description of our progressives’ blind self-tethering to a party whose leaders — like the Clintons, like Obama — are so servile to Big Money and war profiteering that they make Dick Nixon look like Diogenes), points us to an “excellent piece” by the ever-overexcited Charles Pierce, esquire (sorry, I mean Charles Pierce of Esquire), which sounds this very theme.

Pierce, wearing his prodigious classical learning lightly, informs us that “every politician since Cato” has engaged in the multimillion-dollar crony fluffing and policy twisting that the Clintons have been practicing for years. This kind of thing — say, taking more than $100 million in “donations” from an uranium magnate who then reaps gargantuan profits when the Clinton-headed State Department greenlights the sale that makes said magnate richer and gives Russia (led by a man that Hillary ignorantly likens to Hitler) control of one-fifth of America’s uranium production capacity — is just “business as usual,” says Pierce. “Every politician” does this, every single one of them — and has done since the high and palmy days of Rome. You may agree or disagree with Professor Pierce — but no one can deny that this is a deeply informed, richly nuanced piece of analysis.

Pierce, renowned in progressive circles for his sharp-edged acumen, here plays the naif — Goober Pyle Goes to Washington. He scratches his head like a simple, honest feller befuddled by the silver-tongued talk of fancy-pants nabobs, and says that, as far he can tell, the detailed stories in the New York Times and Washington Post are just peddling a nebulous conspiracy theory, something about how President Hillary would be beholden to foreign donors or that the couple were pocketing Foundation cash or something. This is not, of course, the import of the stories, which lies in their fresh confirmation and amplification of the Clintons’ particularly successful example of elite influence-peddling. But a simple shrug of the shoulders blows this straw man away, and Pierce is off to the races in his time machine, reliving the false accusations that assailed the Clintons back in Starr-Time.

And of course, many of the allegations assiduously peddled by partisan operators and the respectable press in those days were false, or petty, or pointless. And yes, the Clintons beat the rap (except for Bill’s law license), and ended up with Bill as the most popular politician in America (a rank he still holds, incidentally) and Hillary in the US Senate.

But all of this was a sideshow. The learned Theban of Esquire somehow omits some salient facts from his magical history tour. For even as right-wing agents were needling Clinton about failed land deals and Oval Office canoodling, Clinton was overseeing the deaths of up to half a million innocent children (and many more innocent adults) through the draconian sanctions he imposed on Iraq. This, even though Clinton and US intelligence knew in 1995 that Iraq had destroyed all of its weapons of mass destruction. As I noted back in 2005, confirmation of this fact came from “from none other than the man in charge of the Iraqi WMD program, Saddam’s defecting son-in-law, Hussein Kamel. Kamel’s wealth of information on the destruction of Iraq’s WMD ‘was so extensive it was almost embarassing,’ said UN interrogators.”

This was not secret, by the way; it was reported in Time Magazine and other venues. And it was later confirmed independently by UN inspectors in 1998, who had verified the destruction of 95 percent of Iraq’s WMD arsenal before they were stopped from finishing the job by Bill Clinton’s four-day bombing assault on the country. Clinton justified the attack — which killed dozens, perhaps hundreds of civilians — by pointing to Iraqi “interference” in the almost completed inspections. The Iraqis were being quarrelsome, because they believed America had planted spies among the supposedly neutral inspectors. Clinton sternly denied such lies, and ordered the attack. (Conveniently, it occurred during his impeachment hearings.) However, just one year later, guess what: the UN admitted that, er, America had planted spies among the supposed neutral inspectors: “UNSCOM had directly facilitated the creation of an intelligence collection system for the United States in violation of its mandate.”

Oh well. Bombing raids under false pretenses and the senseless death of half a million children due to sanctions based on “causes” known to be false — I guess that’s just “business as usual” too, eh Charles? As for Hillary’s later vote to OK a whole war based on false pretenses (which, once again, saw the arms inspectors pulled out before they could confirm, again, the fact that Iraq had no WMD) — well, hell, “every politician” since the dawn of time has done the same, ain’t they, Goob?

But none of this matters to our progressives. Nor does Hillary’s bloodthirsty record as Secretary of State, her vital role in the vast War Machine, ever pushing for more aggressive responses, for overturning governments (as in Honduras), for arming dictators (like her “close family friend,” Hosni Mubarak), for targeted assassinations and drone attacks, for allying with extremists to reduce whole nations to chaos (Libya). Who can forget that moment when the mask slipped and Hillary revealed the true, brutal nature of our bipartisan ruling elite — her gleeful exultation after Moamar Gadafy was sodomized and killed: “We came, we saw, he died!”

No, what matters is that Republican “ratfuckers” trumped up charges against the Clintons 20 years ago. (Charges that related only to personal and financial behaviour; the Republicans didn’t care about the bombing and killing; they would’ve liked more of it.) The sleaziness of the Clintons’ enemies absolves them of all blame, apparently. Any evidence of their corruption — financial, legal or moral — no matter what the source, is, ipso facto, nothing more than the noxious fumes of conspiracy.

As with Obama, there seems to be no crime or morally corrupt practice they will not countenance if it is committed by the standard-bearer of the Democratic Party. As Tarzie points out, they will “anguish” over their support — both Digby and Pierce preceded their Clinton apologias with stern posts criticizing the drone attack that killed two al Qaeda hostages, and two other Americans said to be al Qaeda members. Digby took issue with the “targeted assassination” program and Pierce pointed out that the drone campaign only creates more enemies for America. But the fact that Hillary Clinton will certainly continue these polices — and will probably intensify them — doesn’t stop the progressive duo from taking up the cudgels for her when someone questions her ethical and financial probity. The values and moral principles that underlie their attacks on the various depredations of the Terror War that Obama has expanded suddenly disappear at the first scent of partisan warfare. Their “ultimate concern” (to use Paul Tillich’s term) is the political victory of the Democratic Party — no matter what crimes and horrors its leaders perpetrate. However anguished their support, nothing will ever induce them to withdraw it.

There will be much, much more in this vein as the long, degrading freak show of the presidential campaign drags on. What our progressives once despised, they will soon defend. (As with Obamacare, which was originally — and rightly — scorned by progressives like Digby as an egregious sell-out to corporate interests and a death-blow to hopes for genuine health care reform, only to become a precious jewel to be adamantly defended against all attacks.) That thousands are dying, that extremism is spreading, that chaos is accelerating, that inequality is growing, that millions of people are suffering horribly from the deliberate choices of their champions does not, in the end, override their tribal instincts.

And in this way, they help our rapacious elite insider to keep rat-fucking us all.

Quote:Clinton Charity Scam : only 5.9% went to grants paid

Submitted by IWB, on April 27th, 2015

I have to admit this is a pretty impressive tax return…. and belies a simple question: Why would anyone “donate” to such a “charity”?
$144 million in direct contributions
[Image: icon1.png] and grants; $149 million in total revenue (2013 numbers); of that $8.9 million went to grants paid (that is, about 5.9% of the funds that came in went to charitable causes.)

The rest was either “absorbed” (that is, the “charity” still has it) or was paid out in things like executive compensation.
You might be interested in knowing that the “charity” had 35 employees with reportable compensation (that is, over $100,000) and their top five combined had $2.6 million in direct (that is, cash) compensation and another $278,000 in benefits for approximately $3 million — or 1/3rd of all spending on “charitable causes“.  On a grossed-up basis the charity spent $21.8 million on salaries and wages or approaching three times what it spent on “charity.”

Nearly 6,400 of missing Lois Lerner emails from 2004-2013 were found by an inspector general investigating the IRS’ improper treatment of Tea Party groups, reports The Hill.

Most of the emails the inspector general found were from 2012 and 650 emails were from 2010-2011, despite IRS Commissioner John Koskinen testimony to Congress last year that Lois Lerner’s hard drive crashed in 2011 and most of her emails were “unrecoverable.”
35,000 emails were recovered from recycled back-up tapes by the inspector general.

Quote:( Patrick Thibodeau) At the end of October, IT employees at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts were called, one-by-one, into conference rooms to receive notice of their layoffs. Multiple conference rooms had been set aside for this purpose, and in each room an executive read from a script informing the worker that their last day would be Jan. 30, 2015.

Some workers left the rooms crying; others appeared shocked. This went on all day. As each employee received a call to go to a conference room, others in the office looked up sometimes with pained expressions. One IT worker recalls a co-worker mouthing “no” as he walked by on the way to a conference room.

What follows is a story of competing narratives about the restructuring of Disney’s global IT operations of its parks and resorts division. But the focus is on the role of H-1B workers. Use of visa workers in a layoff is a public policy issue, particularly for Disney.

Disney CEO Bob Iger is one of eight co-chairs of the Partnership for a New American Economy, a leading group advocating for an increase in the H-1B visa cap. Last Friday, this partnership was a sponsor of an H-1B briefing at the U.S. Capitol for congressional staffers. The briefing was closed to the press.

One of the briefing documents handed out at the congressional forum made this claim: “H-1B workers complement – instead of displace – U.S. Workers.” It explains that as employers use foreign workers to fill “more technical and low-level jobs, firms are able to expand” and allow U.S. workers “to assume managerial and leadership positions.”
The document was obtained by Norman Matloff, a computer science professor at the University of California at Davis and a longtime critic of the H-1B program. He posted it on his blog.

Disney says its restructuring wasn’t about displacing workers, but was intended to shift more IT resources to projects involving innovation. That involves hiring many new people to fill new roles. Prior to the reorganization, 28% of Disney’s IT staff were in roles focused on new capabilities; after this reorganization, that figure was 65%, a source at Disney said.

“We have restructured our global technology organization to significantly increase our cast member focus on future innovation and new capabilities, and are continuing to work with leading technical firms to maintain our existing systems as needed,” Jacquee Wahler, a Walt Disney World spokesperson, said in a statement.

Disney officials did not want to comment about the situation beyond that statement.

From the perspective of five laid-off Disney IT workers, all of whom agreed to speak on the condition of anonymity, Disney cut well-paid and longtime staff members, some who had been previously singled out for excellence, as it shifted work to contractors. These contractors used foreign labor, mostly from India. The laid-off workers believe the primary motivation behind Disney’s action was cost-cutting.

“Some of these folks were literally flown in the day before to take over the exact same job I was doing,” said one of the IT workers who lost his job. He trained his replacement and is angry over the fact he had to train someone from India “on site, in our country.”
Disney officials promised new job opportunities as a result of the restructuring, and employees marked for termination were encouraged to apply for those positions. But the workers interviewed said they knew of few co-workers who had landed one of the new jobs.

Employees said the original number of workers laid off back in October was more than several hundred. But the Disney source put that number lower, saying approximately 135 IT workers lost their jobs.

Disney has long used contractors at its IT operations in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., at a building called “Team Disney.” Workers on visas were likely in use well before the restructuring. But in the period after the October layoff notifications, IT workers said they observed a marked increase in people they believe were new to the U.S.

It’s difficult to determine how many H-1B workers, L-1 visa workers or contractor workers generally, were at this Disney site. Only a couple of workers asked the contractors where they lived or if they were on a visa. It was an awkward conversation and generally avoided. But one observation all of the workers recounted was the widespread use of Hindi.

Several of these workers, in interviews, said they didn’t want to appear as xenophobic, but couldn’t help but to observe, as one did, that “there were times when I didn’t hear English spoken” in the hallways. As the layoff date neared, “I really felt like a foreigner in that building,” the worker said.

In the Team Disney office, two of the contractors, HCL and Cognizant, had, in total, about 65 Labor Conditional Applications on file in the past year, according to records by for just that site. But there were other contractors working at Disney, as well, and it’s unknown whether temporary workers on L-1 visas were used.
Disney Parks and Resort CIO Tilak Mandadi, in a leaked memo shared Nov. 10 to the IT staff, described the planned transition, told about the posting of new roles and explained the goal to deliver new capability. Disney’s culture is to refer to employees as cast members.

The CIO wrote in part: “To enable a majority of our team to shift focus to new capabilities, we have executed five new managed services agreements to support testing services and application maintenance. Last week, we began working with both our internal subject matter experts and the suppliers to start transition planning for these agreements.

... The Intense Pressure to Say Nothing

Quote:It’s possibly no coincidence that Hillary Clinton started her presidential run 
the same week Hmm2
that astronomical scientists at the University of Hawaii in Manoa  
announced the discovery of a Supervoid  Jawdrop 
a structure in space 
18 billion light-years across
and “distinguished by its unusual emptiness.”   Rofl

The Supervoid sits in a part of the cosmos known as the Cold Spot, 
where there’s far less matter to observe than elsewhere throughout the universe.

It’s a perfect analogy for how Hillary Clinton’s opponents 

seek to characterize her: 
as someone who is profoundly visible yet hard to identify. 
She is politics’ Dark Matter: 
We know she’s there, but we just can’t describe her. 
Is she on the left or the right, 
is she a friend of the rich or the poor,  Dunno
is she a testosterone-fueled superhawk  Horsepoop
or a grandmatronly van-driver 
popping into Chipotle for a chat with the staff?

Yet Hillary’s identity problem is prominent Anon
only because she has been on the public stage for so long.
It’s a magnified version of a debilitating crisis of identity
that sits at the heart of national American politics,
the real Supervoid
that constricts and confines most presidential candidates:
and that is, the intense pressure to say nothing Whip

The Joker is taking in 100 million $

Quote:This past weekend in Miami, 
Bush told his biggest donors that he expected to beat
previous early Republican fundraising records,

pledging that he had raised more money for the super PAC in his first 100 days 
than any prior Republican has ever done for their campaign in the early stages. 

Left unsaid were the different rules Bush plays by, 
as he tightly skates around campaign finance rules 
that would make the massive hauls impossible.

... he's still eclipsing anybody else by three or four," said Fred Malek, 
a top Republican fundraiser. 

Bush has reportedly set an early goal of raising $100 million 
for his super PAC, a target denied by Bush aides. 
No sums were released to donors in Miami this weekend, 
but Bush's super PAC will have to disclose its total contributions this summer.

Jeb Bush: Give 11 Million Immigrants A Chance To Stay

Quote:Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush declared Wednesday 
that 11 million immigrants in the country illegally should have an opportunity to stay, 
wading yet again into his party's contentious immigrant debate.

In tone and substance, Bush stands out among the many Republicans 
lining up for the GOP's next presidential primary, 
where conservatives who oppose an immigration overhaul often hold outsized influence. 

As he moves toward a presidential campaign, 
the brother and son of former presidents 
has not backed away from his defense of immigrants in the country illegally 
and a policy that would allow them to attain legal status under certain conditions.

"We're a nation of immigrants," 

Bush said at the National Christian Hispanic Leadership Conference 
that brought several hundred Hispanic evangelical leaders to Houston this week. 
"This is not the time to abandon something that makes us special and unique."
