    The Clinton Global Initiative has raised mega- millions for fighting poverty, health care, and human rights around the world. Granted the Clintons have not suffered, but lets not think for a moment the billions given by billionaires to political parties is not done for personal financial gain and power. The billion dollars the Koch brothers are raising for the 2016 campaign and their long-term resistance to campaign disclosure is for loading the system in their favor. There is a huge problem of money and influence in politics and the Republicans are masters at it. At least there is a large element of benevolence to the Clinton Foundation.

    There are a lot of examples of people who are altruistic. Billionaires like Warren Buffet, Bill Gates and dozens of others contribute their fortunes to making the world a better place. Other’s like the Koch brothers are intent on pushing their political agenda.

    The Koch brothers are intent on changing the US from the old politics of power and people to a game of lords and serfs. Sad that so many, including quite a few posters here, think that’s just dandy because they are handed buzz words they’ve been conditioned to react to.
    Right this minute, if you asked the right wing posters here, they’d tell you the right supports the military. I read Stars and Stripes, pretty much every day. Nearly every day, there’s an article about a cut or demand from Congress because they want to micromanage the US military. Today, it’s about cutting the military budget unless the military office in charge gives Congress unredacted classified information – which any fool can easily see they intend to release for political purposes. And I’ll bet the “liberal” media didn’t put that on the front page or the back page either, did they? Maybe a bare mention on the scroll at 3am so they can say “it’s out there”?
    That’s supporting the military? Really? Buzzwords and nonsense. http://www.expressnews.com/news/us-world/article/House-threatens-to-slash-defense-funding-over-6223089.php

    15%, That is the percentage of money that is donated to the so call Clinton Foundation that actually goes to charity. The rest goes into the vast sink hole known as the Clinton personal charity.

    But the right wing will support damaging the US military by cutting the budget to PUNISH them for protecting classified sources and individuals. As they always have.

    Ted….Ted…..Ted….There you go again. There is a significant difference between contributing to an organization that does help people and bribing a public official. Also, you go after the Koch brothers and, once again, ignore the likes of George Soros. Additionally, can you tell me what the political agenda is. I can tell you that the Soros group is intent on bringing communism to the U.S.

    It’s the old (VERY old) Fox News/TEA/Neo-Con way of doing things:

    -

    1: Make up some stuff
    2: Report on it
    3: Have someone pick it up to write a book
    4: Report on the book
    5: Report on the reporting
    6: Report on the debunking, questioning it
    7: Keep it in the news until you start over at 1)

    -

    They have been peeing into the fountain of truth for years, even decades. They should all be brought out into the sun, put against the wall and shot, cigarette and blindfold optional. They are SYSTEMATICALLY destroying the United States. They are TRAITORS and TERRORISTS. They are in the employ of very wealthy individuals who benefit from these actions and they’re getting their (breadcrumbs by comparison) of wealth for it. They PROSTITUTE themselves in order to serve their masters. They are DISGUSTING!

    Fox news ratings are consistently trending lower. They are the least watched cable channel among voters under 35 and their average viewer’s age qualifies them for Social Security. You pretty much have to have been watching and listening to the news in the Fox bubble long enough to have gotten in at the beginning, so that today’s absurdity is based on yesterday’s, in order to make it believable. If you tune in without the brainwashing to make the bubble feasible, either you are really gullible, or it’s just for entertainment.

    That’s right Lisa, keep the focus on Hillary. Nobody needs to question where the Republican candidates are getting their money from. Nobody needs to question who’s donating all the PAC money and what they expect to get out of it. Make sure nobody pays any attention to the man behind the curtain!.

    Six cartoonists (four of them liberals) decided to use one variation or another on the same “Hillary Baggage” theme today. Could it be that the Democrats are unhappy with their Chosen One?

    “Giustra took specific aim at a report this week in the New York Times that suggested his contributions to the Clinton Foundation were aimed at gaining the blessing of the State Department — then about to be headed by Hillary Clinton — for a lucrative uranium deal involving Russian and Kazakh interests.
    “There is not one shred of evidence to back up the Times’ conclusions,” Giustra wrote. “This is not about me, but rather an attempt to tear down Secretary Clinton and her presidential campaign. If this is what passes for investigative journalism in the United States, it is very sad.”
    “I sold all of my stakes in the uranium company — Uranium One — in the fall of 2007, after it merged with another company,” Giustra said. “I would note that those were sold at least 18 months before Hillary Clinton became the Secretary of State. No one was speculating at that time that she would become the Secretary of State.” He called the Times report “a wildly speculative, innuendo-laced article.”

    The New York Times get information from a Republican operative who is selling a book and supposedly verifies the fact but fails to interview the donor or get the other side of the story. Past the smell test? I doubt any politicians are quote clean as big money and lobbyist have easy access. It is not as if lobbyist does not write legislation or portions of legislation. The whole non-profit thing is way out of control especially with politician foundations and political advocacy groups.

    I don’t even like HIllary, and don’t want her to run because all the load of bull-baggage the “Right” is slinging at her, as they have for nearly two DECADES, is too over the top to put up with any longer.


    Jeb raises as much at a stop at Dunkin Donuts, and the press and GPO says, “oops, don’t let that out!”, and as to baggage? How about a governor springing his daughter after she’s charged with felony drug charges?? Never mind the familyt baggage like Silverado, WMDs, desertion, etc… yep, like Hilllary, friends and family should count on the right too. Don’t even THINK about the senior nut-case Cruz.

    Whereas the conservative cartoonists rarely criticize their candidates. Do they blindly follow their “Chosen One”?

    The Clinton Foundation was NOT set up to fight poverty and world hunger or advocate for human rights. It was set up to line the pockets of two of the most corrupt individuals who live on this planet. The Clintons could take a crap on their supporters—and frequently do—and all those supporters do is try to divert the conversation to other topics. If Hillary Clinton is elected President, her record of corruption will far exceed that of Hugo Chavez or any other tinhorn dictator.
