Hillary Clinton, Cisco, China and money. Perfect together


Scooby Doo AKA Hillary Clinton is just common folk don’t you know. So like us, so much that her little corruption angle continues unabated. Meanwhile she smiles and smiles and smiles. And her little head bobbles on. No doubt the thousands of worker visas were thrown in as a bonus. I will throw in the funnies of how her week went.I would say a good week for us.

International Business Times reports:

Cisco Systems had a public relations problem: Having invested $16 billion in the Chinese market, the technology giant was suddenly facing congressional scrutiny over its alleged complicity in building the so-called Great Firewall that helps China’s authoritarian regime censor information and surveil its citizens.

The San Jose, California, company endured a high-profile Senate hearing about its Chinese operations in 2008 and reaffirmed its “continued commitment to China.” But the issue wouldn’t die. A group of investors stormed the company’s annual meeting in November 2009, pressing a shareholder resolution that would force the company to prevent the Chinese government from using Cisco technology to engage in what critics said was widespread human-rights abuse.

That’s when then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tossed the company a lifeline. Weeks after Cisco executives killed the shareholder initiative, Cisco was honored as a finalist for the State Department’s award for “outstanding corporate citizenship, innovation and democratic principles.” The next year, the company won the award. While the honors were for the company’s work in the Middle East, they gave Cisco a well-timed opportunity to change the subject and present itself as a champion of human rights.

What Clinton did not say at the State Department award ceremonies was that Cisco had been pumping money into her family’s foundation. Though the foundation will not release an exact timeline of the contributions, records reviewed by International Business Times show that Cisco had by December 2008 donated from $500,000 to $1 million to the foundation. The company had hired lobbying firms run by former Clinton aides. After the money flowed into the foundation, Clinton’s State Department not only lauded Cisco’s human rights record, it also delivered millions of dollars worth of new government contracts to the company.

      Yes, few seem to care and that is the most disturbing. Not even reported for the most part.

    There is more than enough to take her down, she has so many skeletons in her closet that she should not even get close to the Presidency, but of course it is all going to go unreported and the sad fact is that most Americans don’t even seem to care. I think many of them see this is a chance to get Bill back in the White House and when you come down to it if that is what they are thinking they certainly seem sexist to me.😉

      The admiration society appears to be overwhelming. I have to think that at least some will get sick of her over the next months. Hope springs eternal.

        Her ‘admiration society’ I don’t get it, I just don’t get it. What the heck am I missing?

        Just a worn out old hag that was a corrupt lawyer that learned her trade off of the Watergate hearings and had a husband of the same stripe. Did nothing, achieved nothing of note.

        So why do so many support her??? My cousin’s daughter, smart, smart young woman. She will vote for the first time in the 2016 election. She adores hillary. My cousin and her husband are conservative. I just don’t get why so many people are blind to who she is. I’m flummoxed, disappointed, and just really, really sad about this.

        Something apparently has happened in our evolution that has put blinders on certain realities.When I ask those who support her, no one can say one thing other than she is a woman. I share your sadness as we know what lies ahead for our once great Nation. Same thing happened to the Roman Empire and other Nations as well. They rise and they fall. A sad fact of history,

    @Mustang…
    Uh-Oh. Don’t know about you, but I don’t start old age for a year. So could have to put up with a lot more. 🙂

    She also collected $300 million from Goldman Sachs –the epitome of crony capitalism, as evidenced by the slug Hank Paulson and his demon seed Timothy Geithner, who shares tax violations with Al Sharpton. I don’t see how this country can survive all of the corruption vested upon us by members of both parties. I’m glad I’m old.

      There is little interest in her corruption. But then again, it is on both sides of the aisle. I am with you. We lived in the best of times, and hit life’s lottery.

    Should she be called Scooby Doo or the Cisco Kid? She will most likely just keep rolling along unencumbered neither by her past nor by her future plans for continued corruption. Whether she’s sharing a meal at Chipotle with democrat operative plants or sticking her fat ass in our faces the country loves her. Hillary in 2016 , Chelsea in 2024.

        We all try and fight the good fight. The deck appears stacked against us with this MSM. If we can change one vote, it is worth the effort.
