Clinton Foundation placed on charity ‘Watch list’


What I find amazing is the media’s refusal to cover the fact that the Clinton Foundation gives out only about 15 percent of its “donations” for grants. We keep hearing about all of the “good works” that they do, but compared to its revenue, it is nothing but a money beast that enriches and corrupts others. So here we go:

The Clinton Foundation has joined Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network on a list of naughty nonprofits maintained by Charity Navigator, a prominent charity monitor.

The Clinton Foundation was put on Charity Navigator’s “watch list” last month,The New York Post reported on Sunday.

Charity Navigator created a watch list last year to include any charity that does not “meet our criteria.” Organizations are placed on the list when Charity Navigator becomes “aware of conduct that may affect a donor’s decision to support that charity.”

While Charity Navigator focused only on the Clinton Foundation’s donors, it could plausibly add the organization’s low payout rate to its watch list rationale.

Last month, the website The Federalist looked at the Clinton Foundation’s IRS filings for the period between 2008 and 2012. According to its analysis, only 15 percent of the $500 million raised during that span when towards grants for other organizations.

Nearly $110 million was paid out in the form of salaries and benefits while $25 million went towards travel expenses. Almost 60 percent of the organization’s disclosed revenue — or $290 million — was listed under the category of “other expenses.”

    We are on the same page tonight, I also posted about this. I find it interesting they placed The Clinton Foundation on the watch list last month because that is before all of these recent revelations, it shows us there were concerns before this all broke loose in the last two weeks.

      We bloggers have been posting about much of this for it seems like forever. There was zip concern when the Uranium mine was sold in 2010. Now the feigned outrage. If we can find the stories, where is the MSM?

      The MSM has known about these stories but decided they were not news-worthy for obvious reasons. We will have to do their job for them, I just hope there are enough of us left to make a difference!

    Yes, the ship is sinking! What I want to know is what happens to all the campaign money raised to date, (should she decide it is time to jump overboard)…who gets it? What will it be used for? Hmmmmmm. In 1989 with the passage of the Ethics Reform Act. they are no longer allowed to use the monies for personal uses. BUT, with their foundation they are allowed to donate an unlimited amount, I believe. So, again, I say, Hmmmmmmm. It will be interesting to watch both the foundation and the presidential run unfold.

    This is damning of the Clinton Foundation.

    As far as I’ve seen and read, there’s been nary a peep so far in the mainstream media on this topic.
