It’s been 34 years
since "Deep Throat” advised Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein (as
documented in their book, "All the Presidents Men”) to "follow the
money” in the Watergate case that resulted in President Nixon’s
In rooting out
political corruption, that advice still holds, one of the latest
examples being the payment schedule that Democrat New York Governor
Eliot Spitzer was caught on tape trying to negotiate with his prostitute
self-destructive, career-destroying behavior, like Nixon’s, is small
potatoes compared to the filthy-lucre trail of Bill and Hillary Clinton.
In reviewing only a
small number of the shady deals both Bill and Hillary have made over the
years, it should be clear to any sane American that entrusting Hillary
with the U.S. presidency will:
▪ Threaten our national
▪ Bankrupt our domestic
▪ Contaminate every
treaty and trade deal with questions about their legality.
▪ Mire our system in
four or eight more years of sleazy scandals.
As Grace Vuoto of The Washington Times reminds
us: "Mrs. Clinton is not the innocent victim of Mr. Clinton's excesses
that she pretends to be…[she] is and always has been Mr. Clinton's
willing accomplice in his scandals.”
In a riveting
article, New York Times best-selling author Richard Poe says:
"When Bill Clinton
took office in 1993, China presented no threat to the United States…how
did the Chinese catch up so fast? Easy. We sold them all the technology
they needed – or handed it over for free. Neither neglect nor
carelessness is to blame. Bill Clinton did it on purpose.”
investigators,” Poe continues, "later concluded that China made off with
the `crown jewels’ of our nuclear weapons research…probably including
design specifications for suitcase nukes.” The result: "China can now
hit any city in the USA, using state-of-the-art solid-fueled missiles
with dead-accurate, computerized guidance systems and multiple
In short order, defense
contractors, eager to sell technology to China, poured millions of
dollars into Clinton's 1996 presidential campaign. So grateful were the
recipients that "Chinese intelligence organized a massive covert
operation aimed at tilting the 1996 election Clinton's way.”
How did this malevolent
– I call it traitorous – scheme work? According to The Washington Times
reporter Bill Gertz, author of "The China Threat," Clinton received
funding directly from known or suspected Chinese intelligence agents,
among them the Riadys from Indonesia; John Huang; Charlie Trie; Ted
Sioeng; Maria Hsia; Wang Jun and others. Commerce Secretary Ron Brown
served as Clinton's front man, but when investigators began probing the
Chinagate connections, Brown died suddenly in a suspicious April 1996
What followed were the
arrests, conviction, fines, and also escapes to foreign countries of the
above people. John Huang pleaded guilty in
1999, after which President Clinton rewarded him with an appointment to
deputy assistant secretary for international economic affairs at the
"Meanwhile,” says Poe,
"Clinton and his corporate cronies raked in millions.” At the same time,
I might add, that Clinton was slashing our intelligence and military
I have two questions:
What else has Bill Clinton – and his former co-president Hillary –
promised to China? And which other nations or individuals have they made
promises to that either (1) threaten our national security, or (2) lard
their personal coffers with mountains of ill-begotten cash?
If Hillary knew of all
this, then she is de facto unfit, both morally and in terms of
patriotism, to lead our country. If she didn’t know – when the rest of
the world did – then she is too clueless – actually stupid – to lead our
Last week, the Clintons
made public their tax returns from 2000-2006, which revealed that the
ex-president made at least $8 million from foreign sources.
▪ Why were the 2007
▪ What do the Clintons
not want the American public to know about the sources of their
▪ And by the way, who
exactly loaned Hillary that $5 million for her campaign – and was it in
yuans, riyals, or dollars?
Their tax returns
revealed that the Clintons gave $10.2 million of the $109 million they
raked in to charity. Which one? None other than The Clinton Foundation!
"The Clintons,” says a
Wall St. Journal editorial, "can thus use the foundation for, er,
strategic giving, such as the $100,000 it donated last year to a local
South Carolina library – the day after Mrs. Clinton debated in that key
Only a few months ago –
on Super Tuesday in February – the Clintons presumed the woman David
Limbaugh has called "Hillary the entitled” would sew up the nomination
and be the next U.S. president. They thought that the mega-bucks deals
they have made over the years with God-knows-which-countries – the
better to further their "globalist” agenda – were already set in stone.
But now the nomination
looks like it will go to Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, who leads handily
in both popular and electoral votes. But if not, what else have the
▪ More nuclear secrets
to our enemies?
▪ Access to their media
puppets to propagandize their nefarious goals?
▪ The promise of
pushing through "globalist” votes in their favorite world body, the
anti-American United Nations?
December, to avoid damaging Hillary’s presidential campaign with
conflict-of-interest charges, Bill Clinton severed his ties with Yucaipa
Global Partnership Fund LP, the group owned by supermarket billionaire
Ron Burkle. The group had already paid Clinton $15 million for being a
"rainmaker” in opening doors to wealthy investors around the world, and
his buyout was reported to be $20 million.
Clinton is one of three owners of the fund, the others being Burkle
and the ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum. The Wall
St. Journal says, "the activities of sovereign wealth funds – giant
pools of money controlled by foreign governments – have become a
campaign issue, as the funds have made a spate of multibillion-dollar
investments in…corporate giants…”
Former Clinton advisor
Dick Morris asks: "So how much of Bill's earnings that came from Burkle
really came from the Emir's petrodollars? How much did Bill get from the
Emir and what did he do for it? The tax returns don't say and the
Clintons aren't talking.”
In 2005, Bill Clinton and his friend Frank Giustra, a little-known
mining financier from Canada, went to Kazakhstan to meet with Nursultan
Nazarbayev, a man who Judicial Watch has called "an oppressive communist
leader known for human rights violations, corruption and election fraud…
the communist dictator of a former Soviet Republic who happens to own
one-fifth of the world’s uranium reserves.”
"Shortly afterward,” reports Investors Business Daily, "Clinton's pal
won a huge uranium-mining contract that left competing mining companies
astounded.” The windfall made Giustra an instant billionaire, whereupon
he promptly became the largest donor to the Clinton Global Initiative
Foundation, forking over, according to Jo Becker of the New York Times,
a whopping quarter-billion dollars.
"Is it just
us,” asks IBD, "or is there something off about ex-president Bill
Clinton using his influence overseas to enrich a pal and then accepting
the pal's big donation to his foundation? This looks like a bribery
course, is Denise Rich, who donated $450,000 to the Clinton's Library,
after which Clinton promptly pardoned her ex-husband, commodities-trader
Marc Rich, a fugitive for tax evasion and for making illegal oil deals
with Iran during the 1979-1981 hostage crisis.
not forget Vinod Gupta, founder of InfoUSA, a
under investigation for fleecing Alzheimer's patients and vulnerable
seniors out of their life savings. Gupta spent upwards of $900,000
zooming the Clintons around the world on his corporate jets, helped
underwrite for at least $1 million the extravagant millennium New Year's
Eve celebration at the White House, and donated a six-figure gift to the
Clinton Presidential Library.
Then there is
Pinchuk, a billionaire steel magnate and one of the richest men in
Ukraine, who has contributed millions of dollars to the Clinton
editorial adds: "10 percent of Clinton's donations for his presidential
library are from overseas sources – not just wealthy businessmen, but
foreign governments, too. The Saudis gave $10 million, and Kuwait and
Brunei also chipped in.” Contributions
of unknown amounts have also been made to the Clinton Foundation by,
among others, the king of Morocco, a foundation linked to the United
Arab Emirates, and the government of Qatar. NOTE:
Prince Turki bin Feisal was a college
classmate of Clinton’s at Georgetown University and then the head of the
Saudi Arabian intelligence service.
Dick Morris and Eileen
McGann have asked:
▪ Should the Saudi monarchy be permitted to purchase an
important equity position in some of America’s leading banks?
▪ How can Hillary decide fairly when Bill – and therefore
herself – have been getting a reported $10 million per year from a fund
that administers the investments of the Emir of Dubai, the largest
component state in the U.A.E.?”
shows that if there is a loophole,” IBD says, "Clinton will take it.
Appearances of impropriety mean nothing to him. But with a new Clinton
in the White House, the stakes rise. As money rolls in and the Clintons
take power, this specter of an ex-president sitting on a cash-hungry
foundation and his wife in a position to dole out favors bears potential
for Marcos-like corruption and a sellout of American interests on a
scale unknown in the U.S.”
Now why do
you suppose all these mega-rich people – and hundreds I haven’t
mentioned – gave so much money to Bill Clinton? It’s because massive
donations are always quid-pro-quos: You give me your millions and when
I’m back in the White House, this is what I’ll do for you!
is, of course, that the American people have no idea what Bill and
Hillary are promising or have promised, or how their deals will affect
the safety and security of our country.
Among the camarilla
surrounding the New York senator is Bruce Lindsey who,
among other positions, served as Director of Presidential Personnel
and Deputy White House Counsel during President Clinton’s White House
years, and is currently the CEO of the Clinton Foundation.
When Hillary is asked
why the two-million documents pertaining to her own years in the White
House – including those about her failed healthcare-reform initiative –
haven’t yet been released, she invariably says that Lindsey is "working
on it” – ostensibly the same way he’s "working on” releasing the
hundreds of pages of White House papers on the former-president’s
pardons, as well as a list of donors to the Clinton Library.
Translation: Don’t hold
"The Clintons now greatly fear that releasing
the documents will only continue to fuel Mr. Obama's candidacy and give
greater impetus to the nation's clamor for change,” says
"At the very least, the Clintons do not want all those horrid details
and familiar names to be placed before the public again: Whitewater,
Filegate, Travelgate, the pardons and Monica Lewinsky. They do not want
to remind the public that the former president was impeached by Congress
and disbarred. Nor do they wish for us to recall that many of the former
president's closest associates were imprisoned.”
Clearly Hillary has learned well at the master’s
knee. In a report published in February by Insight magazine, Hillary was
"exposed as top earmarker” – a report confirmed by both Citizens Against
Government Waste and The Heritage Foundation. And what are earmarks?
Simply, they are funds exchanged for campaign donations. Sound familiar?
If you’re keeping a scorecard, Hillary had 261
earmarks, Sen. Obama had 46, and Sen. McCain had none!
Then there are the "HillRaisers,”
what Jerry Seper of The Washington Times describes as "the
elite big-money fundraisers for [Hillary]’s presidential campaign [who]
have ties to the 1990s fundraising scandal that tarnished her husband's
presidency by offering Democratic donors sleepovers in the Lincoln
Bedroom and other perks inside the White House.”
They are "part of a political landscape,” Seper adds, "to bypass federal
laws that cap or limit contributions.” Many do business with the
government; while others are lobbyists for foreign governments,
including Dubai, Turkey, Ethiopia, the Kurdistan Regional Government,
China, Canada, and Taiwan.
Hillary promised them and other governments? She’s not saying.
prosecutor Charles G. LaBella, who investigated the Clinton’s
fundraising abuses, concluded that the "intentional conduct and the
willful ignorance uncovered by our investigations…resulted in a
situation where abuse was rampant, and indeed the norm.” The Clintons
relied on the "calculated use of access…as leverage to extract
Democrat Representative Henry Waxman is alarmed.
"The vast scale of these secret fund-raising operations
presents enormous opportunities for abuse,” he said. Last September, he
introduced legislation requiring the disclosure of donors to
HillRaiser, Norman Hsu, raised $850,000 for Hillary’s 2008 campaign. Hsu
is now in jail and the money has been returned. Returned where – to his
jail cell? As in every Clinton wrongdoing, this too is fishy and goes
hand-in-hand with Hillary’s amazing success in raising big bucks from
dishwashers and waiters in New York’s Chinatown. Maybe that’s because,
Los Angeles Times has speculated, the People’s Republic of China was
again passing money to the Clintons, as Johnny Chung and Charlie Trie
had done in the 1990s.
"Is the Clinton campaign a target of Asian
criminal groups looking for political influence?”
asks journalist Lee Cary in and American Spectator article,
"More Peking Duck." If so, how funny – scammers scamming scammers!
Hillary Unfit for
Hillary and her
husband’s deep ties to foreign governments – many of them enemies of the
U.S. – makes her vulnerable to taking their bribes and capitulating to
their agendas, and therefore ineligible for the presidency.
Another disqualifier is
her now-proven inability to manage her campaign’s finances, a miniscule
job compared to the American economy. According to writer Armstrong
▪ She owes her former
chief campaign strategist, Mark Penn, over $3 million.
▪ She owes Penn’s
company, MSHC Partners, over $800,000.
▪ She owes the
phone-banking firm, Spoken Hub, $771,000.
▪ Her campaign is
strapped for cash.
▪ She has failed to pay
hundreds of bills to landlords, cleaning services, event coordinators,
consultants, pollsters and caterers.
▪ She owes her ad
person, Mandy Grundwald, nearly $500.000.
▪ She owes $292,000 of
her own employee’s health insurance premiums.
Yet another sign of
Hillary’s unfitness is her now-proven inability to manage both her
campaign staff and her campaign. According to Jim Vandehei and David
Paul Kuhn of Politico.com:
▪ She has overseen two
major staff shake-ups in two months, first firing her campaign manager,
Patty Solis Doyle, and then her chief strategist, Mark Penn.
▪ She has consistently
underestimated her chief adversary, Barack Obama.
▪ She miscalculated the
importance of organizing caucus states and was caught flat-footed after
failing to lock up the nomination on Super Tuesday.
▪ She has blown through
nearly a half-dozen campaign slogans and failed to put concerns about
her credibility to rest.
Then there is the
matter of Hillary’s complete absence of credibility
▪ "I helped
bring peace to Northern Ireland." Never happened.
remember landing under sniper fire…we just ran with our heads down to
get into the vehicles to get to our base.” Never happened.
▪ "It hurts me that in
our country…this young woman and her baby died because she couldn’t come
up with $100 to see the doctor.” Never happened.
Then there’s Hillary’s
remarkable inability to know what’s happening in her very midst. As
she’s plying her anti-trade message to win over working-class voters in
Pennsylvania, she learns that her chief strategist, Mark Penn, is
lobbying for the Colombia Free Trade Pact that she’s railing against.
Then she learns that her campaign spokesman, Howard Wolfson, signed a
$40,000- per- month contract with Colombia in 2007 to promote the very
same agreement. And, according to Arianna Huffington,
that doesn't omit "a Whitman sampler
of Colombian goodies gobbled up by Bill Clinton, including: $800,000 in
With this kind of
vetting, don’t be surprised if a new Clinton administration appoints
Hugo Chavez to a cabinet post!
There is also the matter of Hillary’s
personal ongoing scandals, among them the still-unresolved lawsuit of
Peter Paul, and the recent ruling (on April 3) by Judge Royce C.
Lamberth involving Hillary’s scheme to obtain – illegally – over-900
private FBI files of prominent Republicans during the Clinton
Finally, there is the troubling question of the Clintons avaricious
greed. As reported by Kenneth P. Vogel in
Politico.com, Bill Clinton’s "presidential retirement benefits cost
taxpayers almost as much as those of the other two living ex-presidents
combined…His $420,000 phone bill and $3.2 million office rent tab both
nearly surpassed the totals rung up for those purposes by Bush, Carter
and the late former presidents Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan combined.”
According to Pete
Sepp, of the nonprofit National Taxpayers Union, "the benefits taxpayers
shell out for their care and feeding just don’t make sense anymore.
There’s a very flimsy justification for such generosity in many
ex-presidents’ cases. In Bill Clinton’s case, there’s zero.”
Perhaps writer Camille Paglia best sums up the reason why a Hillary
presidency would be toxic for our country: "What kind of person would go
to work for a Clinton in the first place? Everyone knows what they would
be getting into: constant war rooms, personal attacks, spin, daily
damage control, a boss prone to temper tantrums, placing your own
integrity out on the ledge as a shill for a fundamentally dishonest
person. I would argue that nobody who hasn't already sold their soul
years ago would ever want to be a part of that mess.”
