Clinton foundation event to have Somali pirate advocate speak


Recall Clinton Foundation marches on. $1 Million from Moroccan King? Now we know who one of the good folks that will be speaking at the May conference.This is where the millions of dollars of the Clinton’s good work goes. To a Somali pirate advocate. Looks like Hillary decided to bail on the conference. But hubby and daughter stand strong.

This week’s Clinton Global Initiative conference in Morocco will feature a speech by K’naan Warsame, a prominent hip-hop artist and Somali pirate advocate.

K’naan, whose hit songs include “Wavin’ Flag (Coca-Cola Celebration Remix)” and “Wavin’ Flag (Coca-Cola Spanish Celebration Remix),” has expressed support in the past for the pirates wreaking havoc off the coast of Somalia, where he was born.

“A lot of people don’t like me for saying this but I’m in support of the pirates,” K’naan said in a 2009radio interview, arguing that piracy had “actually helped us clear our environment” by holding ships for ransom, including some that dump toxic waste off the Somali coast.

He has courted controversy by speaking out in defence of Somali pirates, whose recent activities have included the kidnapping of British couple Paul and Rachel Chandler and the seizure of the US-bound supertanker Maran Centaurus. One of his lyrics asks: “So what do you know about the pirates terrorise the ocean/to never know a simple day without a big commotion.”

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton praised Morocco last year in a statement announcing the conference, describing the country as “a vital hub for economic and cultural exchange.”

That sentiment appears incongruous with the statements issued by the State Department during Clinton’s tenure, which complained of “continuing human rights problems” in the country, such as “arbitrary arrests and corruption in all branches of government,” as well as “discrimination against women and girls; trafficking in persons; and child labor.”

The Clinton Foundation is accepting a major donation from a Moroccan government-owned company to hold a high-profile conference next month in Marrakech with the king of Morocco — an event likely to reignite concerns about the foundation’s acceptance of foreign money just as Hillary Clinton prepares to announce her presidential candidacy. Clinton had been scheduled to appear at the meeting in Marrakech, dubbed the Clinton Global Initiative Middle East and Africa Meeting, on May 5-7. But an official with the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation told POLITICO it’s “unlikely” the former secretary of state will join her husband, Bill. He is still expected at the event, as is Moroccan King Mohammed VI.

    That “foundation” is nothing more than a huge money laundering scheme to allow the Clinton’s to live like the king and queen they think they are.
