Political whores 3

This report from Townhall, by Matt Vespa, reveals to whom Hillary Clinton sold herself. And how she and Bill Clinton pimp their country.

Under [Hillary] Clinton’s leadership, the State Department approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations whose governments have given money to the Clinton Foundation, according to an IBTimes analysis of State Department and foundation data. That figure – derived from the three full fiscal years of Clinton’s term as Secretary of State (from October 2010 to September 2012) – represented nearly double the value of American arms sales made to the those countries and approved by the State Department during the same period of President George W. Bush’s second term.

The Clinton-led State Department also authorized $151 billion of separate Pentagon-brokered deals for 16 of the countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation, resulting in a 143 percent increase in completed sales to those nations over the same time frame during the Bush administration. These extra sales were part of a broad increase in American military exports that accompanied Obama’s arrival in the White House. American defense contractors also donated to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state and in some cases made personal payments to Bill Clinton for speaking engagements.

Such firms and their subsidiaries were listed as contractors in $163 billion worth of Pentagon-negotiated deals that were authorized by the Clinton State Department between 2009 and 2012. The State Department formally approved these arms sales even as many of the deals enhanced the military power of countries ruled by authoritarian regimes whose human rights abuses had been criticized by the department. Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar all donated to the Clinton Foundation and also gained State Department clearance to buy caches of American-made weapons even as the department singled them out for a range of alleged ills, from corruption to restrictions on civil liberties to violent crackdowns against political opponents.

In all, governments and corporations involved in the arms deals approved by Clinton’s State Department have delivered between $54 million and $141 million to the Clinton Foundation as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments to the Clinton family, according to foundation and State Department records. The Clinton Foundation publishes only a rough range of individual contributors’ donations, making a more precise accounting impossible.

Under federal law, foreign governments seeking State Department clearance to buy American-made arms are barred from making campaign contributions – a prohibition aimed at preventing foreign interests from using cash to influence national security policy. But nothing prevents them from contributing to a philanthropic foundation controlled by policymakers. …

National security experts assert that the overlap between the list of Clinton Foundation donors and those with business before the State Department presents a troubling conflict of interest.

Troubling? Just slightly worrying? Not a reason for an absolute bar on Hillary Clinton holding any public office ever again?

The Clintons are political whores. Plain and simple. Want them to lead the country? Down to what depths of moral depravity?

    Last night (5/26/15) on the FOX network show “The 5” a female ‘leftist’ (a fill-in for Juan ‘the ought to return to Cuba with his father commie’ Williams – what ever ghappened to Bob Bechel?) flatout stated she, and most liberals, just don’t care about Hillary’s character. Hillary, she said, would absolutely make her life and her friend’s lives better…no ifs, ands or buts.

    No she isn’t their perfect candidate, the female leftist fill-in continued, but Hillary will give them what they want. She went on to enumerate a number of economic policies, weighted on women’s issues, that SHOULD be forced on businesses and the economy in general. Neither she, nor sadly, did any of the supposed 4 ‘conservative’ hosts ever ask or discuss just how these Hillary/’what liberals want’ policies get paid for or of the consequences of implementing them.

    This bimbo and all the lefties male or female – or one of the other 71 sexes – are whores: voting for what they can get. This liberal dipsoid spoke without a shred of guilt. The idea of taking other peoples money, government as gun…Hillary picking targets and pulling the trigger…to steal generated not one shred of guilt. Liberal government according to SHOULD trumps ethics and morality: want it take it – maternity leave, minimum wage, must ‘serve’ statutes, unending unemployment compensation, et ceteras.

    Unfortunately, the only alternative to leftist mainstream media is the FOX networks is devoid of any free market capitalistic knowledge. The closes to being a free marketeer is John Stossel but he still falls short whereas he supports the FED and, although limited (no such thing), some government economic intervention. And, none on the “5” show have a clue about real economics.

    Had there been someon on the show that did understand free market capitalism, he or she could have told the whore fill-in that Greece is a good example of what happens to a country that implements the policies recommended to or expected of Hillary. What happens is the other people’s money runs out and the society collapses. The USA is actually some $97 trillion in debt http://www.usdebtclock.org/an …an unfathomable number…we are in fact bankrupt. The only saving grace is that the dollar is still seen as the world reserve currency (Obama is radically undermining this position). Unlike Greece, there is no country that can bail us out. Incidently, Greece has defaulted on loan after loan…through the Wolrd Bank and the International Monetary Fund the FED gurantees those loans; when Greece defaults, the US taxpayer covers the losses to the banks. How many Americans, I wonder, realize that?

    Again, had there been anyone with knowledge of economics on the show, it could have been pointed out how everyone of the liberal proposals was doomed to failure…indeed had failed evrywhere it has already been tried. Geez, someone on the show should, speaking of should, have asked her who won the war on poverty…certainly not the poor!

    The facts of life must be faced. Stupid runs rampant in America. It is done on purpose so nobody ever asks about who is paying off the defaulted loans made to all the failed leftist and dictator governments around the world. Psss…it’s the American tax payer. And, it has been since the FED was created. Yes, the Clintons are whores. What the Clintons’ johns are getting is access to America’s wealth. Nobody on the “5” could set that bimbo stright. They all SHOULD be bitch slapped!

      Great Hillary quote – I can’t believe she actually said that! With a straight face!
      The depth of corruption, accompanied by brainless leftism in our government and media whores, is as unfathomable as the amount of debt they’ve saddled us with. The country has become a shell covering a rotten core.
      If a Republican had done even a fraction of what the Clinton’s have, they’d be behind bars already. The Clinton’s don’t even have to stoop to explain themselves, and neither does Obama. It’s beneath them. How dare anyone even speak of it!

        I don’t know it, yet I suspect there is a school that career-politicians attend that teaches how not to answer questions. Consider if you were merely watching her answer…given gesturing, speaking tempo and multiple camera angles/shots…you might not realize she said nothing. And, mainstream won’t point it out.

        But they all do it. Rule one is answer the question you want to answer not the one you’re asked. Anytime you here a reply begin with “yes, but the real point is…” you know the misdirection and/or lie is coming. If it’s running for office…truth is not a factor of any commentary or speech…especially for a re-election.
