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.

The latest Clinton lie – obtained over $7.4 million in Capital gains

First, Hillary sends out Bill to cover her sorry whatever. Sounds Presidential doesn’t it?  Then he goes to Africa with his daughter to demonstrate his “good works” Unfortunately, only about 15 percent of the donations end up in “good works.” In other words, it’s a slush fund. Clinton Foundation placed on charity ‘Watch list’. Even worse, he now lies about his the taxes he pays. Will America drink the Kool-aid again?

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.

Bill Clinton’s claim that he and Hillary have paid “almost no capital gains” in the past 15 years was put in doubt Monday following reports showing the former first couple booked nearly $400,000 in capital gains between 2000 and 2006.

But a Daily Caller analysis shows the Clintons may have incurred vastly more capital gains than that: between $2 million and $7.4 million.

“Over the last 15 years, I’ve taken almost no capital gains and I’ve given 10 percent away,” Bill Clinton said in an interview with NBC that aired on Monday.

Buzzfeed and The New York Times fact-checked that by analyzing the power couples’ publicly available IRS filings. According to filings for the period between 2000 and 2006 — the only years available — the Clintons reported $371,000 in capital gains, mostly from the sale of property.

But Hillary Clinton’s 2007 Senate financial disclosure report shows the couple may have recorded capital gains as much as 20 times larger than that.

Baltimore’s Freddie Gray, drug dealer with 18 arrests

So the cities burn over a drug dealer who, in time, had a good chance of being shot in his hood over his line of work. Look, if the police did something wrong let’s find out about it. The police risk their lives trying to give black kids a chance by cleaning up these parasites that prey on them. So here is the work history of Freddie Gray as outlined by Moonbattery:

Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old Baltimore man who died after being injured while in police custody, had a lengthy criminal record before his fatal run-in with police on April 12, 2015. He had previously been arrested at least 18 times and had been in and out of prison since 2008, court records show.

One thing we already know for sure is that Gray was not an innocent victim, but a career criminal with a rap sheet a mile long. Only in a society deranged by moonbattery would he be running loose, predictably forcing the police to arrest him yet again. Gray had a lengthy arrest record with convictions dating back until at least 2007, according to the Maryland Department of Justice.

His curriculum vitae:

March 20, 2015: Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance
March 13, 2015: Malicious destruction of property, second-degree assault
January 20, 2015: Fourth-degree burglary, trespassing
January 14, 2015: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute
December 31, 2014: Possession of narcotics with intent to distribute
December 14, 2014: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance
August 31, 2014: Illegal gambling, trespassing
January 25, 2014: Possession of marijuana
September 28, 2013: Distribution of narcotics, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance, second-degree assault, second-degree escape
April 13, 2012: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance, violation of probation
July 16, 2008: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession with intent to distribute
March 28, 2008: Unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance
March 14, 2008: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to manufacture and distribute
February 11, 2008: Unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a controlled dangerous substance
August 29, 2007: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, violation of probation
August 28, 2007: Possession of marijuana
August 23, 2007: False statement to a peace officer, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance
July 16, 2007: Possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance (2 counts)

Be careful about sharing this information. When Pittsburgh radio DJ Mike Jax posted Gray’s list of crimes along with the comment “he was pretty busy before he was unjustly killed at the hands of Baltimore P.D.,” he was promptly suspended indefinitely by WAMO.

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.”

Clinton Foundation spends only 15 percent giving grants

The Federalist has a well written piece that includes just how much the Founders were concerned about individuals such as the Clintons coming in to power and how to deal with it Constitutionally. Even more of a reveal is just how little the Clinton Foundation actually spends on “good works.” About 15 percent apparently. This is not new to the Clintons. Here we go:

The latest foreign payola scandal is just the latest chapter in the Clinton corruption novel. They played games with dirty cash in Arkansas. Theyplayed games with dirty cash literally in the White House. And now we know they were playing games with foreign cash while Hillary Clinton was serving as Secretary of State. The Founding Fathers who wrote the Constitution knew what could happen if U.S. officials put cash before their own country, so they banned the practice.

Meanwhile, there are the speaking fees for Bill Clinton from companies and organizations that were also donors. According to the Washington Post, these speeches netted him at least $26 million dollars.

Beyond the possible payola, there’s the little problem of it being unconstitutional to take payoffs or benefits under Article 1, Section 9.

NYC Judge orders transit to post ‘Killing Jews is worship…’

It is as if common sense has departed even those who are supposed to display some degree of intelligence. All of this under the umbrella of diversity and acceptance. Want to support the notion of killing Jews? No problem. Christians next. I wonder how killing a Muslim would fly?

Here we go:

NEW YORK (Reuters) – A federal judge on Tuesday ordered New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority to display on its buses a controversial ad that refers to Muslims killing Jews, rejecting the argument that the ad could incite terrorism or imminent violence.

U.S. District Judge John Koeltl in Manhattan said the ad from the American Freedom Defense Initiative, which had previously run in Chicago and San Francisco, was protected speech under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

The ad portrays a menacing man wearing a scarf around his head and face, includes a quotation “Killing Jews is Worship that draws us close to Allah” attributed to “Hamas MTV,” and then states, “That’s His Jihad. What’s yours?”

Koeltl said he was “sensitive” to the security concerns, but noted that the MTA and Chairman Thomas Prendergast “underestimate the tolerant quality of New Yorkers and overestimate the potential impact of these fleeting advertisements. It strains credulity to believe that New Yorkers would be incited to violence by ads that did not incite residents of Chicago and San Francisco.”

The Obama kids lunch and then us. Let them eat cake

school lunch

How is this for a yummy treat?

PORTSMOUTH, Va. – That’s not really a fish filet with a whole wheat bun resting on top.

Nah, your eyes are playing tricks on you.

That’s what administrators at Virginia’s Portsmouth Public Schools want parents to believe after a mother took a photo of her child’s paltry school lunch and posted it on social media.

The mom says James Hurst Elementary served the lunch Tuesday.

After the photo began circulating around the community, Food Service Coordinator Jim Gehlhoff admitted the lunch “concerns us,” but added that it might not actually be as bad as it looks.

portsmouth-lunch“Poor lighting and food presentation make this lunch unappealing,” he said in a statement released to the media.

He says it’s in compliance with the federal lunch rules championed by First Lady Michelle Obama.

“The meal in this photo and other meals served by Portsmouth Public Schools meet nutritional and USDA requirements,” according to the food service coordinator.Keep reading…
