Clinton Foundation slush fund – less than 15 percent goes to charitable grants

Let’s just have a little refresher today. Before Hilary starts her next spin of all of the “good works” of the Clinton foundation, take a look at reality.When you hear about all the AIDS drugs given out in Africa and other marvelous endeavors, know that charity begins at home.  I will give you a few of my links to the Foundation posts. Yep. Just 5.7 percent in 2014 went to charitable grants. Later year report got it to 15 percent. Here are the earliest years below. The other point?

For Hillary, Charity begins with the Clinton Foundation 

A number of Clinton Foundation Board of Directors charged or convicted of crime 

In fact, the Clinton Foundation is so unlike a real charity that even charity watchdog group Charity Navigator refuses to rate the Clinton Foundation because of its “atypical business model.”

One of those problems is the fact that the Clintons put big donors and close pals on the board for reasons that are hard to fathom. In fact, at least four of these “board members” have either been charged or convicted of serious financial irregularities, crimes including bribery and fraud.

So if Jeff Sessions can tear himself away from the gang bangers, I am willing to give him just a few more links so he can “catch up” on the Foundation news. Next time, the Clinton Global Initiative. Back to my post:

Just 5.7 percent of the Clinton Foundation’s massive 2014 budget actually went to charitable grants, according to the tax-exempt organization’s IRS filings. The rest went to salaries and employee benefits, fundraising and “other expenses.”

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.”Daily Caller

Clinton’s Laureate Education Company – latest scam to hit the news, Execs quit

This latest Clinton reveal is sure to be a headliner in the days to come. I first posted about this back in 2016 as one of the greatest money laundering scams that preyed on the unsuspecting and helped make the Clinton rich. This past February, having plundered as much as they could, it was dreamed up to start an IPO trying to extort even more via the stock market. All of the top executives have quit- within a few months of the IPO. They apparently know more, much more than what has been revealed. The Daily Caller writes a wandering piece, so I have included my earlier post as well. It’s Columbus Day, so if you have a few extra minutes do read the latest update as this reveals in glorious ways just what sociopaths the Clinton’s are:

Top Executives Ditch Clinton’s Laureate Education Company  reads the headline. Top executives at a company with ties to former President Bill Clinton called Laureate Education are leaving the firm only months after they launched its IPO.

The Baltimore-based company became an issue during the 2016 presidential election campaign when the public learned it paid Clinton nearly $18 million over a period of five years to serve as a consultant and “honorary chancellor.”

The firm also faced accusations it operated as a “pay-to-play” company by donating between $1 to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation while receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in government funds.Laureate Education has been closely entwined with the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation. In addition to $17.6 million the company paid to Bill Clinton and its donations to the foundation, both the foundation and Laureate have held joint programs. More at  Daily Caller  with latest info

From my previous post: The Clinton’s get rich off of promoting world’s largest for-profit Universit  

While the media is quick to attack Trump and his rebuttal outrage regarding Trump University, Bill Clinton and thus his little lady Hillary as well are getting rich on Bill’s being paid and promoting the world’s largest for-profit University with sharp business practices,…. well, I’m getting ahead of myself. You read the fine points from American Thinker: (Update at the Daily Caller link at end of post)

As accusations swirl around Donald Trump for the complaints filed against Trump University, few people know about how Bill Clinton was hired in 2010 to be Chancellor for the Laureate Network, the world’s largest for-profit university network.

Not just Bill Clinton but other Clinton friends from the past were hired to promote the university.  Investors in the vast multinational university include Henry Kravis, George Soros, Steve Cohen and Paul Allen.  One of the investors in Laureate University, SAC Capital Advisors LP, is a hedge fund that had to pay a $1.2 billion dollar settlement to the US Dept. of Justice to settle allegations of insider trading.

One student named Larissa Da Silva complains that when she enrolled in IBMR, a Brazilian branch of Laureate, the admissions officer promised her a 30 percent discount on tuition.  Two years later the deal evaporated and her monthly tuition cost jumped to 791 reais.  She summarized the change of policy by stating “I feel completely deceived.”  Apparently the fine print states that grants and tuition discounts may be temporary, so it’s her fault for not lawyering up before she enrolled in the Clinton-promoted college.

Bill Clinton has personally been paid to make appearances promoting Laureate University in countries such as Malaysia, Peru and Spain.  By January 2014 Laureate University had 800,000 students worldwide and its annual revenue was $4 billion, far larger than the revenues of Trump University.

Laureate has taken over struggling colleges by using high-pressure marketing tactics such as “turbocharging enrollment” using students as telemarketers.  Laureate University was investigated by the Rio State Legislature’s Investigative Commission on Private Universities in Brazil.   Robson Leite, a Rio state legislator who led the probe concluded:  “They have turned education into a commodity that focuses more on profit than knowledge”

What voters may soon realize is that every time the media attack Donald Trump for something, it turns out that the Clintons were involved first, to a far greater extent.  This also proves what Trump has been saying; that the media are very dishonest and focus only on him.

Hillary Clinton has Mueller transfer Uranium to Russia on a tarmac

What is it with the relationship with Mueller and Hillary Clinton? I would want to ask Mueller what was he doing out on a tarmac transferring Uranium to Russia? What is it with Uranium Russia and Clinton? What is it with tarmacs?

But possible even more shocking is the fact that the State Department wanted the transfer of the HEU to take place on an “airport tarmac” which is rather reminisce of the infamous Loretta Lynch/Bill Clinton meeting which occurred on a Phoenix, Arizona, tarmac back in June of 2016.

(INTELLIHUB) — Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton facilitated the transfer a highly enriched uranium (HEU) previously confiscated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) during a 2006 “nuclear smuggling sting operation involving one Russian national and several Georgian accomplices,” a newly leaked classified cable shows.

The secret “action request,” dated Aug. 17, 2009, was sent out by Secretary of State Clinton and was addressed to the United States Ambassador to Georgia Embassy Tbilisi, the Russian Embassy, and Ambassador John Beyrle. It proposed that FBI Director Robert Mueller be the one that personally conduct the transfer a 10-gram sample of HEU to Russian law enforcement sources during a secret “plane-side” meeting on a “tarmac” in the early fall of 2009.

Paragraph number 6 of the leaked cable confirms Dir. Mueller’s Sept. 21 flight to Moscow.

“(S/Rel Russia) Action request: Embassy Moscow is requested to alert at the highest appropriate level the Russian Federation that FBI Director Mueller plans to deliver the HEU sample once he arrives to Moscow on September 21. Post is requested to convey information in paragraph 5 with regard to chain of custody, and to request details on Russian Federation’s plan for picking up the material. Embassy is also requested to reconfirm the April 16 understanding from the FSB verbally that we will have no problem with the Russian Ministry of Aviation concerning Mueller’s September 21 flight clearance.”

Past dealings with the Russians were also mentioned in the cable, signifying that previous deals have taken place.

As Peter comments:

If I were a liberal wacko I would take from this story the following: Well this helps make sense of Trump’s collusion with the Russians. Ten years before he defeats Hillary she meets Trump’s Russian friends clandestinely on a tarmac as a favor to him. And now Mueller who is secretly Donald’s uranium co-conspirator will pretend to investigate him. Let’s draw up those letters of impeachment in Maxine Water’s office.

Clinton Foundation probe continues in NY FBI office

This was a pleasant piece of information. Nothing could please me more than having the Clinton’s corruption exposed. Especially since they are so self-absorbed they are still trying to do what they can to disrupt the transition of government. One would think they would want to stay under the radar considering all of their nefarious behavior but apparently no. I especially would like to see Huma taken down a notch. Here we go:

comeyOfficials at FBI headquarters instructed its New York field office to continue its corruption investigation into the Clinton Foundation following the election of Republican candidate Donald Trump, according to a former senior law enforcement official.

The instructions ordered agents to “go forward” with their ongoing inquiry into the Clinton Foundation which is focusing on issues of corruption and money laundering, according to the source.

“There were no instructions to shut it down, to discontinue or to stand down on the investigation, but to continue its work,” the former official told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview.

The same source broke the news to The DCNF that the FBI was conducting a multi-city probe of the foundation in as many as five cities: New York, Little Rock, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and Miami. The source did not know the status of the bureau’s work in the four other cities.

Podesta and the Clintons up to their eyeballs in Russian money

Now that John Podesta has become center stage in the latest drops from wiki Leaks, knowing what we now know about him, I thought I would give you a repeat of an earlier post. While the Clinton machine keeps spinning that Trump is in bed with the Russians rather it it they who are up to their eyeballs. Including one John Podesta. Here it is:

What is becoming apparent is that there are few connected with the Clinton money machine who are not enjoying the fruits of the Clintons. This story tells us how John Podesta made out collecting big bucks with Russia while no doubt selling our technology down the drain. But the Clintons are well-known for a penchant for selling out technology. Bill loved to do deals with China, looks like Hillary and her cohorts look toward Russia. First this, and then on to Podesta. We have this gem:

A Moscow-based technology initiative funded in part by the Russian government funneled tens of millions of dollars into the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was serving as secretary of state, according to a new report released Monday.

As President Obama’s top diplomat, Clinton oversaw and facilitated the State Department’s failed five-year project to “reset” U.S.-Russia relations, which spurred the creation of Skolkovo, a research facility known as Russia’s version of Silicon Valley,Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer wrote in a new report, titled “From Russia with Money.”

But I digressed:

A bombshell report released Sunday by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI) revealed that John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, developed undisclosed relationships with a Putin-connected Russian government fund.

Podesta served on the executive board of an energy company called Joule Unlimited, which received $35 million from a Kremlin-connected entity.

Podesta was on the executive board of an energy company which received $35 million from a Kremlin-connected entity.

The energy company was part of a “Russian reset” program, which then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton helped initiate. The program was designed to build an “innovation city” called Skolkovo, a Russian equivalent to the U.S.’s Silicon Valley. Critics of the initiative, including the FBI, warned that the Russian government would use Skolkovo to gain access to technology and information that would help build up their military.

The GAI report says “Two months after Podesta joined the board, Vladimir Putin’s Rusnano announced that it would invest up to 1 billion rubles into Joule Unlimited, which amounts to $35 million. That represents one-fifth of the entire amount of investment dollars Joule collected from 2007 to 2013.”

Rusnano is a government-owned joint-stock company that was founded by Vladimir Putin in 2007.

It is unclear why Podesta failed to disclose reveal his membership on the board of one of the Joule entities, even though it was required by law. The revelation of Podesta’s secret relationship with Kremlin-connected entities, however, only raises more questions about the transparency and trustworthiness of the Clinton campaign — and casts into doubt the Democratic effort to paint Clinton’s opponent as too cozy with Russia.

Clinton Foundation affiliated charities failed to file financial information

Yesterday I posted Clinton Foundation refiling its tax returns, look for other ‘errors’ now it gets even better. Will the NY AG tell the Clinton foundation to return millions in donations? The Clintons are saying:

Foundation officials say “while we are not yet certain if this information is required to be filed,” the foundation will do so “out an abundance of caution.” (Isn’t this a real knee slapper?)

The NY AG publicly went after Trump, but Clinton Foundation didn’t even file forms on their affiliated charities, and the AG didn’t even ask a question. The Clinton Foundation also failed to file info on donations from foreign donors as required by NY law.

Clinton Foundation officials told CNN Tuesday that “certain supplementary financial information” may not have been filed as required with the New York State Charities Bureau for three years.

The news comes a day after New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman sent a cease-and-desist letter to the Trump Foundation — sent on September 30 and made public on Monday — preventing it from soliciting donations in New York because the Trump Foundation had failed to properly register as an official charity.

The Clinton Foundation “is properly registered to solicit funds under Article 7A, which requires organizations to register before they solicit funds in New York,” according to a statement sent by a Clinton Foundation spokesman.

But officials from the foundation also said: “It has come to our attention that the copies of the Clinton Foundation’s consolidated audit reports filed with the Charities Bureau from 2012-2014 may not have included certain supplementary financial information related to affiliates of the Foundation.”

The Clinton Foundation has 10 different affiliated charities operating under its umbrella. The largest of these is called CHAI — the Clinton Healthcare Access Initiative — and files its own financial statement with New York.

Foundation officials say “while we are not yet certain if this information is required to be filed,” the foundation will do so “out an abundance of caution.”

Clinton Foundation refiling its tax returns, look for other ‘errors’

We hear nothing about the issue of the Clinton Foundation and its subsidiaries problems with their tax returns. We are talking about foreign donations don’t you know. Much more serious than anything Trump is accused of. That being he should have given more to the government than the tax law requires. Here tis:

Hillary Clinton’s family’s charities are refiling at least five annual tax returns after a Reuters review found errors in how they reported donations from governments, and said they may audit other Clinton Foundation returns in case of other errors.

The foundation and its list of donors have been under intense scrutiny in recent weeks. Republican critics say the foundation makes Clinton, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, vulnerable to undue influence. Her campaign team calls these claims “absurd conspiracy theories.”

For three years in a row beginning in 2010, the Clinton Foundation reported to the IRS that it received zero in funds from foreign and U.S. governments, a dramatic fall-off from the tens of millions of dollars in foreign government contributions reported in preceding years.

Those entries were errors, according to the foundation: several foreign governments continued to give tens of millions of dollars toward the foundation’s work on climate change and economic development through this three-year period. Those governments were identified on the foundation’s annually updated donor list, along with broad indications of how much each had cumulatively given since they began donating

Separately, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), the foundation’s flagship program, is refiling its form 990s for at least two years, 2012 and 2013, CHAI spokeswoman Maura Daley said, describing the incorrect government grant break-outs for those two years as typographical errors.

CHAI, which is best known for providing cheaper drugs for tens of thousands of people with HIV around the world, began filing separate tax returns in 2010, and has previously refiled at least once both its 2010 and 2011 form 990s. For both those years, CHAI said its initial filings had over-reported government grants by more than $100 million. More at Reuters

Speaking of CHAI: Clinton Foundation Gave ‘Watered-Down’ AIDS Drugs | The Daily Caller

Former President Bill Clinton and his Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) distributed “watered-down” HIV/AIDs drugs to patients in sub-Saharan Africa, and “likely increased” the risks of morbidity and mortality, according to a draft congressional report obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
