Clinton staff worked for Foundation and State Department

I posted this some weeks ago. Now that the topic has gained attention, let me give you this item that up to now I have not seen anywhere else.

Hillary knew she was going to run for President. Yet, her hubris is so great that she made no effort to even clean up any questions of impropriety. Cleaning an Email server? No problem.Extorting money from foreign governments? Nothing to see. Here we go:

Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Department was listed as a director at the Clinton Foundation in its corporate records for more than three years after joining the administration, highlighting concerns that Clinton’s aides were too close to the foundation during her tenure.

The “William J. Clinton Foundation Corporation” named Cheryl Mills as one its three directors when it applied for nonprofit corporate status in Florida in June 2009—five months after Mills began serving as Clinton’s chief of staff and counsel at the State Department.

Huma Abedin, another close Clinton aide, received a waiver in 2012 that allowed her to do part-time consulting for the foundation while working for the government. She did not publicly acknowledge the work until it wasrevealed by the New York Times.The “William J. Clinton Foundation Corporation” named Cheryl Mills as one its three directors when it applied for nonprofit corporate status in Florida in June 2009—five months after Mills began serving as Clinton’s chief of staff and counsel at the State Department.

The organization continued to list Mills as a director in its annual state filings in 2010, 2011, and 2012.

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.

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.

Hillary Clinton lies again, lies about family immigration history

Hillary just cannot help herself from wandering off the reservation of truth. Is it important? I think so. Let’s hold her feet to the fire. Video over at Buzz Feed. Update with a reminder of Liz Warren.

Speaking in Iowa Wednesday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that all her grandparents had immigrated to the United States, a story that conflicts with public census and other records related to her maternal and paternal grandparents.

“All my grandparents, you know, came over here and you know my grandfather went to work in lace mill in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and worked there until he retired at 65. He started there when he was a teenager and just kept going,” Clinton said.

Clinton has told the story of grandmother immigrating as a young girl before. Most recently in a speech last year:

My grandmother on my father’s side, Hanna Jones Rodham — by the way, insisted on using all 3 names despite what people in Scranton, Penn. might have thought at the time ― was one of those tough Methodist women who was never afraid to get her hands dirty. She traced her Methodism back to the Wesley brothers themselves, who converted her great grandparents in the small coal mining villages of Southern Wales. She immigrated with her family as a young girl to Scranton and went to work — very young―in a silk mill, and then she met and married my grandfather, who had also come to this country as a young man from the coalmining area in Newcastle, in England.

Hat tip and more with video over at Buzz Feed  Recall Liz Warren?

Hillary Clinton will roll out campaign under the radar

After the media has been relentless in their attacks on the GOP candidates as they have rolled out their Presidential campaigns, we get to hear how Hillary will fly under the radar, afraid to answer any serious questions, and apparently believes she will end up being anointed as the Democrat candidate for President. What difference does it make? Not apparently to the press. Of course, tingles and Chuck Todd are fine with this. Here we go:

After being plagued by scandal, Hillary Clinton’s campaign has decided she will deliver her official presidential announcement Sunday.

Unlike Ted Cruz’s announcement, there will be no great fanfare.

“We just wanted to get this thing over with and get on with it,” a soon-to-be Clinton staffer told Politico.

The statement has some pundits saying that Clinton does not actually want to run a campaign—she wants the end result, to become president.

The $2 billion Clinton push will begin with a video and a post on social media.

Clinton will redo her “listening tour” from her winning campaign for the Senate, rather than pushing campaign goals.

Clinton Foundation marches on. $1 Million from Moroccan King

Hillary’s little corruption pay to play continues unabated. Apparently it was going on full tilt while she was Secretary of State. What is amazing is that she has no intention of slowing down even while running for President. One can only imagine what it may be like if she should be elected. Here we go:

The Clinton Foundation will accept a donation in excess of $1 million from a Moroccan government-owned company and hold a policy conference in Marrakech with the king of Morocco, according to Politico.

Hillary Clinton was scheduled to appear at the May Clinton Global Initiative Middle East and Africa Meeting, but officials at the foundation now say it is unlikely she will make the trip. (Bill is planning on attending.)

The reason for the event is a large donation from a phosphate exporter owned by Morocco’s constitutional monarchy, which was accused by Clinton’s State Department of “arbitrary arrests and corruption in all branches of government” in 2011 and fails to treat women as equals.

Clinton visited Morocco during her time at the State Department and praised King Mohammed

During her State Department tenure, Clinton visited Morocco, and later launched an ongoing U.S.-Morocco strategic dialogue (the latest installment of which is set to occur in Washington this week), praising the country in 2012 “as a leader and a model.”

Hillary Clinton hires Google executive as head of technology

Anyone who has been around my blog for any length of time has read my numerous posts on the involvement of Google and the unrest and agitation of the so-called Arab Spring aiding directly in the downfall of Libya and Egypt governments. So now Hillary will have access to every scrap of info on us, and Google has it. No doubt Google will be able to keep her server in ship shape as well. First the news, then a memory recall done back in 2011, followed by earlier links.

The Washington Post reports:

Hillary Rodham Clinton has hired a longtime Google executive to oversee her likely presidential campaign’s technology development and build new ways for Clinton to engage with voters, according to Democrats with knowledge of the move.

Stephanie Hannon, who is Google’s director of product management for civic innovation and social impact, will become the chief technology officer of the expected Clinton campaign, according to the Democrats, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the appointment.

At Clinton’s New York campaign headquarters, Hannon will serve on the senior staff and oversee a team of engineers and developers, which could include outside consultants, to devise Web sites, apps and other tools for the former secretary of state and her staff to engage with supporters and voters.

Now from the way back machine:

Russia blames Google for stirring Egypt unrest 

ERIC SCHMIDT, FORMER GOOGLE CEO: “My view of Mr. Soros is that he is one of the most important people in the world today in terms of the impact he has had.”

The world’s governments are getting sick of google and its shenanigans. We should be as well.

First they are working really, really closely with the government. That is OK. They have a close relationship with the NSA. OK. They work closely with law enforcement. Cool with that. Last year they signed a $27 million deal with the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency. I don’t even know what that is.

But they have been accused of receiving preferential treatment and a $6.5 million contract with the General Services Administration. They are working hard to bring net neutrality, the kind that we’ve talked about on this program that hard left groups like Free Press are advocating for.

Three reasons to be wary of Google

Eric Schmidt, the former CEO, he resigned two weeks ago, he is on the White House council for science and technology, co-chaired by John Holdren. They also have privileged access to NASA airfields.

Second point — they are working way too close with hard-core leftists. Eric Schmidt is on the board of an organization called the Politics of Trust Network. You might recognize a couple of other names on that board like Van Jones, oh, and Drummond Pike, the former CEO and founder of the Tides Foundation.

In 2010 the Google, Inc. charitable giving fund of the Tides Foundation gave over $145 million directly to nonprofits and academic institutions. Google has made donations in the seven figure range to Moveon.org. George Soros is doing that, too, one of farther left political action groups in America.

They also gave money to the Trickle Up Program, a big recipient of cash from the Tides Foundation and George Soros’ Open Society Institute. And speaking of George Soros, here is Eric Schmidt saying this about George Soros. Full story here at  Fox News

Russia is getting tired of google as well:

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s deputy blamed Google Inc in an interview published on Tuesday for stirring up trouble in the revolution that ousted Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak.

“Look what they have done in Egypt, those highly-placed managers of Google, what manipulations of the energy of the people took place there,” Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin told the Wall Street Journal.

Russia has so far resisted placing restrictions on the Internet, but analysts say there are a group of hardliners close to Putin who would like to impose controls similar to China’s.
