Here’s Just How Little The Clinton Foundation Contributes to Charity

in Fraud & Corruption

If you read the recommendations, you shouldn’t contribute to a charity that gives less than 75% of its collected funds to the actual charity it supposedly represents. Spending more than 25% of donated funds on overhead is considered excessive and a charity to be avoided.

So, it should come as a surprise that the charity called “The Clinton Foundation” gives only 5.7% of collected funds to actual charity. The rest go to things like paying Chelsea $6 million per year and buying her $10 million NY apartment.

According to Daily Caller:

The Clinton Foundation spent a hair under $91.3 million in 2014, the organization’s IRS filings show. But less than $5.2 million of that went to charitable grants.

That number pales in comparison to the $34.8 million the foundation spent on salaries, compensation and employee benefits.

Another $50.4 million was marked as “other expenses,” while the remaining almost $851K was marked as “professional fundraising expenses.”

Despite taking in an additional $30 million in 2014, the Clinton Foundation spent 40 percent less on charitable grants in 2014 than in 2013. Even as it slashed charitable spending, the foundation increased the amount spent on salaries, employee benefits and compensation by $5 million in 2014. The foundation also spent $5 million more “other expenses” in 2014.

Sean Davis at The Federalist notes, “the bulk of the charitable work lauded by the Clinton Foundation’s boosters — the distribution of drugs to impoverished people in developing countries — is no longer even performed by the Clinton Foundation. Those activities were spun off in 2010 and are now managed by the Clinton Health Access Initiative, a completely separate non-profit organization.”

As first reported by The Daily Caller, the IRS launched an investigation into the Clinton Foundation this past July after 64 House Republicans called the foundation a “lawless ‘pay-to-play’ enterprise that has been operating under a cloak of philanthropy for years and should be investigated” in a letter to the IRS, FBI and Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

Could you imagine if it were announced that a Trump charitable foundation spent only 5% of its collected funds on charity? There would be massive calls for indictments and certainly calls for him to drop out of the Presidential race.

However, the Clinton Foundation, whose founders are Bill and Hillary, apparently get a pass for running a corrupt, self-serving pay-to-play institution. Perhaps the press would be better used covering such corruption than worry about who Donald Trump may have offended.

Watch Hillary’s VP Pick Grilled For Her Avoidance of Media

in Fraud & Corruption

While Mr. Trump is hounded by the press everyday, and has held many press conferences, answering unscripted questions from hostile reporters, Mrs. Clinton has successfully dodged a press conference for about 270 days. Meanwhile, her choice for VP has countered that Mrs. Clinton talks to the press all the time and is accessible.

According to The Blaze:

The hosts of “CBS This Morning” grilled Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.) Thursday following his claim that his running mate, Hillary Clinton, “talks to the press all the time.”

Guest co-host Demarco Morgan asked Kaine, “Senator, this was Donald Trump’s first meeting with a head of state as the nominee, and he immediately opened up the floor to reporters for questions. When will we see Hillary open up the floor and take questions from reporters at any event?”

“Well, you see Hillary take questions from reporters every day,” Kaine replied. “She does — she talks to the press everywhere she goes. She did a press conference when she was—”

“Really?” co-host Norah O’Donnell interjected.

“At a recent — she did a press conference when she was at the recent meeting of the African-American and Hispanic newspaper publishers,” Kaine continued.

“But that was the first time in a long time, Senator,” Morgan replied.

“She talks to the press all the time,” Kaine said.

“She doesn’t do it that often,” Morgan said.

“Well, look, I don’t see what the massive difference is between a press conference and talking to the press everywhere you go,” Kaine insisted. “She talks to the press a lot, and I’ve been with her when she’s talked to the press.”

O’Donnell noted that it has been 272 days since Clinton has held a formal press conference, and unlike every other modern candidate, she does not allow journalists to travel with her on her campaign’s plane.

Journalists on Twitter were incredulous that Kaine claimed Clinton is accessible to the press.

It’s fascinating that there is even any credibility left in politicians. They do not address reality and instead say what they must to achieve what they want, consequences be damned.

Mr. Kaine is just another Clinton satellite willing to lie, cheat and steal his way to power. Hopefully we can get a fair election and watch them all be carted off to jail.

HLN Blurs Offensive Words on Hero’s Shirt – You Won’t Believe What They Say

in Fraud & Corruption

The media has shown even great disgust for the democratic process as they blur the shirt of a police officer who saved a baby from a hot car. The man was proudly wearing a Trump shirt and HLN felt they had to censor that message during the interview.

According to The Blaze:

The retired New Jersey police officer who saved a baby locked in a hot car has been making the media rounds, including on HLN.

But it wasn’t just the heroic rescue itself that made headlines after he appeared on CNN’s sister channel.

During a live interview that aired Wednesday, the retired officer, Steven Eckel, wore a “Trump for President” T-shirt.

However, when the story re-aired later in the day, Eckel’s shirt was blurred out.

Screen Shot 2016-09-03 at 9.31.43 AM

Here’s the uncensored interview:

And here’s the censored segment:

HLN said in a statement Thursday afternoon that the image was blurred “in error.”

As the Daily Caller noted, the move came just days after HLN announced it was canceling Dr. Drew Pinsky’s show. Pinsky recently questioned the quality of Hillary Clinton’s health care, saying he was “gravely concerned” about the “1950s level” care the candidate was receiving.

It’s fascinating to see how panicky the media is becoming toward the Trump phenomenon. Mr. Trump has clearly struck a nerve and has started a strong sense of rebellion and awareness among the voters.

So, it comes as no surprise that they are trying to squash support for him at every turn. And with the recent firing of Dr. Drew for daring to question Hillary’s health. It’s clear to see that the fix is in.

Time will tell whether Mr. Trump can defy the odds, but he’s certainly fighting a vast army of opposition in the media.

Here’s All You Need to Know About Trump’s Historic Immigration Speech in 90 Seconds

in Fraud & Corruption

If you just watched the state-sponsored media, you wouldn’t know Donald Trump made a Presidential-looking trip to Mexico and then flew to Arizona and made a historic policy speech on immigration. The mainstream media doesn’t want you to know that he wants to put America first again, and improve the quality of life for all Americans, regardless of race, color or religion.

According to The Blaze:

If you didn’t have time to catch Donald Trump’s speech Wednesday on immigration, Dana Loesch offers an easy, minute-and-a-half CliffsNotes version.

The short and shareable compilation, the “Trumpolation,” focuses on the real-estate tycoon’s campaign promises around his tough stance on immigration, including general topics that have both propelled him to his front-runner status and stirred more violence and vitriol than past election cycles:

● Building a wall, specifically one that is “impenetrable, physical, tall, powerful, beautiful”;
● Passing Kate’s Law, to ensure criminal aliens convicted of illegal re-entry receive strong mandatory, minimum sentences;
● Tripling the number of ICE deportation officers; and
● Creating special deportation task force focused on identifying and deporting dangerous criminals who have immigrated illegally

It’s interesting that liberal media pundits compare Trump to Hitler when he suggests such common sense solutions to a very real problem.

Illegal and poorly managed immigration to this country is wrecking it. While we know government officials want that, most liberals honestly believe pumping in tens of thousands of refugees is actually a good thing.

Mr. Trump is a welcome voice is a sea of insanity.

Watch Patriotic Pole Vaulter’s Gesture Go Viral at Olympics

in Fraud & Corruption

When US pole-vaulter Sam Kendricks interrupted his practice run to stop for the national anthem, he didn’t expect the huge outpouring of patriotic support. As a second lieutenant in the Army Reserve, the soldier felt compelled to respond, as directed, to hearing the national anthem, even mid-stride on his approach.

According to The Blaze:

So it likely comes as no surprise that as Kendricks was right in the middle of a practice run during qualifications last Saturday, something caused him to stop as he neared the bar and landing pad.

It was the sound of “The Star-Spangled Banner” over the loudspeakers.

Upon hearing his country’s national anthem, Kendricks stopped his run, dropped his pole and stood at attention.

He eventually took home the bronze in Rio, halting a dozen-year drought of no medals for the U.S. in the pole vault. Here’s what the native Mississippian had to say about standing on the podium:

They say back home, and jokingly in track circles, that if you win a medal it will change your life. I think your life is changed on the way to that medal, honestly. With all the journeys and sacrifices that you make, all the training that you do, and the people you leave at home to watch. That is what is really the value of the (medal). I’m glad I have something tangible to bring home and show for it. I know that everybody in Oxford will love to see it. But the journey, like my coach says, is the goal. Not necessarily the medals. And it’s very fun to come and compete, but not necessarily the end of all things.

It’s always interesting how the actions of military men and women seem to surprise civilians. The military is loyal to flag and country and disciplined in their actions. Perhaps it’s because everyday citizens are not so respectful or capable of demonstrating such respect, but lieutenant Kendricks clearly tapped into a patriotic nerve.

SEAL Who Took Down Bin Laden To Pay Huge Fine

in Fraud & Corruption

You know something is wrong when the Navy SEAL who played a pivotal role in the raid that killed bin Laden has to pay the government $6.6 million from the profits of his book about the raid. It seems only the President can profit from the raid.

According to The Blaze:

Matt Bissonnette, who wrote “No Easy Day” under the pseudonym Mark Owen, will give the U.S. government all profits and royalties from the book or movie rights. The proceeds already total more than $6.6 million. He will have four years to pay the bulk of that.

The former Navy SEAL who wrote a book about his role in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden will pay the government more than $6.6 million for violating non-disclosure agreements and publishing without getting the document cleared by the Defense Department, according to federal court documents.

Matt Bissonnette, who wrote “No Easy Day” under the pseudonym Mark Owen, will give the U.S. government all profits and royalties from the book or movie rights. The proceeds already total more than $6.6 million. He will have four years to pay the bulk of that.

It’s refreshing to see that Mr. Bissonnette has another successful book that allows him to profit from his years of service. Why the government felt the need to confiscate the profit of the former SEAL’s book is anyone’s guess, but most likely a deterrent to anyone else who may be considering writing a tell-all. When it comes to Special Operations, it’s probably better, and less embarrassing, to keep missions secret.

Trump Has Best Reason Why Hillary Releasing Her Taxes Now

in Fraud & Corruption

Hillary Clinton is a queen of redirection and the Trump campaign is accusing her of releasing her taxes now to draw attention away from the felonious revelations in her leaked emails. It’s ironic that while Mrs. Clinton refuses to release transcripts of her speeches to Wall Street firms, her medical records or those 33,000 emails she said were ‘personal’ and thus not subject to disclosure, yet is willing to release her tax returns.

According to Western Journalism:

“Hillary Clinton has turned over the only records nobody wants to see from her — the American public wants to see the 33,000 emails she deleted to obstruct an FBI investigation,” Jason Miller, a top campaign spokesman, said in a statement Friday.

“Everything she doesn’t want us to see has been digitally shredded or put under lock and key. This document release is nothing more than an attempt at distraction and misdirection by an individual who created and then purged an illegal private email server,” Miller added.

“The records we need to see are those being hidden, deleted, obstructed, and stashed away by Hillary Clinton to keep authorities from untangling this corrupt scheme that reaches into the world’s shady corridors of power,” claimed the spokesman.

FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress that Clinton had not turned over “thousands” of work-related emails.

The statement also makes reference to alleged instances of pay-for-play regarding the Clinton Foundation and the State Department, which may further be revealed by the missing Clinton emails.

As reported Thursday by Western Journalism, Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s former of chief of staff while serving at the State Department, was part of multiple emails addressing requests by the Clinton Foundation to give high-dollar donors and others special attention.

Additionally, while working at the State Department, Mills interviewed top level executives to run the Clinton Foundation.

The Trump campaign statement noted the sale of the American company Uranium One to the Russians (and with it, 20 percent of the U.S.’s known uranium reserves), which Clinton and other Obama administration officials approved.

Ian Tefler, CEO of the company, donated $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundation and Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a speech he gave in Moscow from a company promoting Uranium One.

The Trump campaign noted that Hillary Clinton was paid $10,000 per minute to make Wall Street speeches herself, the transcripts of which she refused to release.

It will be interesting to see how the media respond. Will they bite and shift all attention away from the incriminating material in her leaked emails. Content that could put her in jail for life. Or will they shift their focus to Mrs. Clintons’ ‘transparency’ of releasing her taxes, and put pressure on Mr. Trump to do the same.

I’d put my money on the later, but time will tell. What do you think? Leave a comment with your thoughts below.

Is This Evidence ISIS is Amassing on US/Mexico Border?

in Fraud & Corruption

The increasing terrorist attacks in Europe are raising concerns about such attacks in the US, with the main focus on the porous US/Mexico border. Now comes new reports that ISIS may be amassing on the Mexico side of the border with Texas.

According to Western Journalism:

According to reports in an Italian newspaper, ISIS operative Shaykh Mahmood Omar Khabir has been training militants near Ciudad Juarez since 2015.

The newspaper quotes Khabir as saying the Southern Border is so easy to enter he “could get in with a handful of men, and kill thousands of people in Texas or in Arizona in the space of a few hours.”

Further information linking ISIS with operations in Mexico came after the arrest of Erick Jamal Hendricks, who was arrested last week and charged with “conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.”

Judicial Watch, which has independently reported about the existence of the Ciudad Juarez camp, reported that Hendricks said jihadist “brothers” are just south of the U.S. border in Mexico.

Hendricks tried to “recruit people to train together and conduct terrorist attacks in the United States,” according to the government’s criminal complaint.

The Justice Department, in announcing Hendricks’ arrest, noted his connection to Mexico-based terrorists.

“Hendricks allegedly told (an ISIS source) that he ‘needed people’ and wanted to meet in person; that there were several ‘brothers’ located in Texas and Mexico; that he was attempting to ‘get brothers to meet face to face;’ and that he wanted ‘to get brothers to train together,’” according to a Department of Justice press release announcing Hendricks’ arrest.

The Justice Department said Hendricks tried to recuit an undercover FBI informant.

The press release alleges that Hendriclks told the informant to “download the document ‘GPS for the Ghuraba in the U.S.’, which … allegedly encouraged Muslims to die as a ‘Shaheed’ (martyr), to ‘Boobie trap your homes,’ to ‘lay in wait for them’ and to ‘never leave your home without your AK-47 or M16.

Despite evidence to the contrary, the Obama administration has publicly denied any existence of ISIS terror cells in Mexico.

While radical Muslims are increasing their attacks against Europeans and Americans, Obama is decreasing defense of the border, increasing the infiltration of illegal Muslim immigrants and keeping it all very secret. It’s almost as if Obama is an accessory to terrorism and the actions of this Administration are treasonous.

Media Narrative of Khizr Khan Is Crumbling Fast

in Fraud & Corruption

He was the star of the Democratic National Convention, but the media darling and narrative around his story is crumbling fast as more information is learned about his past. One thing is becoming clear, anyone who takes on Donald Trump finds their offense quickly turns to defense as weaknesses and lies are exposed.

According to Western Journalism:

The Gold Star father has been in the spotlight after he waved a pocket-sized copy of the Constitution during a DNC speech and asked if Trump had even read it. Shortly afterward the media propped him up as an expert on the historical founding document, and touted his knowledge of law repeatedly.

Chris Matthews of MSNBC even likened Khan to Justice Anthony Kennedy.

“You`re like Justice Kennedy because Justice Kennedy, Anthony Kennedy, who Ronald Reagan appointed, is the swing vote, you know, and uses the liberty clause and the equal protection clause for all of his recent big decisions,” Matthews said during an Aug. 1 segment.

Now it seems that most of the information regarding his extensive knowledge was just hype.

Breitbart revealed Friday that Khan passed the BAR when he was 60 and was only permitted to practice law in New York as of June 22, 2010.

In an article published at the end of July, the Washington Post claimed that Khan was “a Harvard-trained lawyer.”

To many this would seem impressive, as Harvard is one of the premier law schools in the country. But Khan graduated from Harvard in 1986 with an Master of Law graduate degree — not a standard law degree.

The Master of Law degree is what most foreign students seek to obtain if they have previously received a law degree in another country. It is a one-year program, as opposed to the standard three-year law school education.

Khan originally studied at Punjab University in Lahore, Pakistan. Not only was he taught British law, but he also become an expert in Sharia law — a medieval Islamic code that doles out harsh punishment for certain crimes.

Being a devout Muslim, Khan has been quoted as saying Sharia takes the place of “all other juridical works.”

Even though this newly revealed information is concerning, it is unlikely the Democratic party will stop using him as a political force to damage the Republican presidential nominee’s image.

On Tuesday, Khan asked for Arizona Sen. John McCain to withdraw support for Trump.

“I implore Sen. McCain … I continue to implore all of the good Republicans who either support or are going to vote for their party’s candidate, this will be a historic moment in the Republican Party. If you publicly rebuked him, you will look back and you will stand tall in front of the nation,” he told Cronkite News Tuesday.

Democrats are now urging Khan to run for political office, as well as hoping he will appear in future Clinton campaign ads.

It’s interesting that the Democrats want Mr. Khan to run for office. Being that he believes the Constitution is subservient to Sharia Law, it’s like the Democrats are inviting their own destruction.

One thing is certain, little about the media narrative of Khizr Khan is holding up to scrutiny. The only person the media seems to scrutinize is Mr. Trump, and the worst they can come up with is that he offended someone with his words.

Huge Milestone Reached As Obama Spent Almost a Year Doing This

in Fraud & Corruption

Screen Shot 2016-08-07 at 5.59.06 PMPresident Obama has under-achieved in the Presidency to the disappointment of many. But, in one area, he has outshines his predecessors. You see, Mr. Obama has hit the golf course more than any other President before him. It seems the work of the nation may be too much for Mr. Obama and he’d rather be golfing.

According to The Hill:

Barack Obama is playing his 300th round of golf as president.

That unofficial count comes from CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller.

Shortly after Knoller’s tweet, the president was on the move, departing the town of Chilmark on Martha’s Vineyard, where the first family is vacationing, at 12:38 p.m. for his 300th round of golf while in office.
The motorcade passed a sign that said “Welcome back, First Family,” en route to the Farm Neck Golf Club in Oak Bluffs, according to reporters traveling with the president.

Many onlookers caught in the traffic jam caused by the motorcade were spotted waving and taking photos.

“The President is golfing at Farm Neck Golf Club with Chris Paul, Cy Walker and Joe Paulsen,” a White House official said.

Obama told the Golf Channel’s David Feherty in a recent interview that his golf handicap is an “honest 13.”

“I think my irons are good, my drive is straight but unimpressive in length, and my putting’s decent, chipping is OK,” Obama said, according to CNN.

“My sand game is terrible.”

It’s interesting to think if Mr. Bush had golfed half as much as Obama, the press would have lambasted in the media overtime he hit the tee. It seems Mr. Obama gets a pass and continues to hit the tees.

With 300 trips to the golf course in the last 7 years, you would think Mr. Obama would be better than a 12 handicap. However, seeing how he’s done everything else, it’s not surprising that he’s mediocre on the course as well.
