Will claims about her foundation´s financial
problems hurt Hillary´s presidential hopes?

Daily Mail [UK], by Meghan Keneally

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/15/2013 6:45:28 AM

Questions have been raised over financial dealings within the Clinton family charity that may cause problems for Hillary Clinton´s possible 2016 presidential run. New reports have revealed that the Clinton Foundation has been ´in the red´ for years even though the charity has raised hundreds of millions of dollars each year, showing the high cost of running the worldwide charity. Former President Bill Clinton called in a team of lawyers to help examine the charity´s financial standing over a year ago and they drew some unsettling conclusions. A scathing article in The New York Times tells how the ´rotating board

This won´t hurt her at all. 1) This is too complex for low-information voters, 2) Democrat entitlement voters think republicans will take away their government handouts, and 3) Hillary has become a folk hero to a large cult of far left liberals.

This was purposely outed now so that it can be sluffed off as ´old news´ during her run a few years from now.

Just like her medical condition and secretary of state tenure along with other scandals too numerous to mention.

The lo-fo´s will never know and if someone educates them, they will not care.

Makes me wonder if, in fact, they have now seen the problems with her and, since they can´t possibly allow a Republican President, even if she was the best choice, they realize that Hillary might be the worst thing to ever happen to Democrat Presidential Politics.

That would be, not our current incompetent, lazy, corrupt and racist black president (which they bear tremendous responsibility for getting elected) who has set back race relations and the cause of blacks everywhere, but an incompetent and corrupt woman, who would make women politicians look like incompetent weaklings, fools, liars, and greedy losers. After all, these unfailingly shallow people in the MSM classify people- and candidates - by the way they look. ("Clean and articulate" Obama with those "perfect creases"???)

You know, like Wendy Davis is a perfect Democrat candidate for Texas Governor-after all, she wears just adorable shoes!

They don´t realize that their beliefs are the problem. Maybe they have a candidate in the wings who is cuter than Hillary....(That could be almost anyone, of course....except Chelsea...)

I find it fascinating that someone has decided to attack at this time. And attack a woman who has been a failure her entire life and never really had any power. The damage done to this country was by her husband but only now, when she shows her intentions to run for potus, is someone attacking.

I´ll never forget the debate between Rick Lazio and Hillary. Rick tore her to pieces.

And then the press pilloried Lazio for being mean to a woman and being disrespectful to the First Lady. And that, my friends is exactly what will happen in 2016 if any Republican man runs against her. He will be vilified as a sexist.

The strategy is to get this out early. Never give a full explanation, then when the campaigning begins, say that you have addressed this before and never respond to questions asked. The lapdog media will never ask again and it will be a non-issue. However, if you put your dog in a crate and place it on top of your car, the media will continue to raise it as an issue decades later.

I can answer the headline without reading the article: the short answer is No, and Heck No.

Hillary can fraud her way to the presidency using the fraud machine the the Mulatto Marxist has spent years putting in place, using taxpayer dollars [ACORN, et al].

Why do you think the Left is so up in arms over Voter ID laws in 30+ states; why do you think the Left is pushing amnesty with all their might?

Voter Fraud. It´s the name of the game. It´s a way of life for the Left.

Doesn´t matter who heads the Dem ticket, look for statistics such as 110% turnout in precincts across the nation. The Fraud Machine is in place and getting bigger and stronger every day [OFA].

And the spineless "R"s are playing dead.

Hillary has done plenty of damage in her official capacity as SOS. Just ask Sean Smith´s mom. She will tell you Hillary lied to her face. Her son is dead but as frequently quoted, what difference, at this point, does it make? A more cold and calculating witch has not walked the face of this earth in a long time.

I respectfully disagree with those who say this can´t hurt her. If played right, this could be fatal to her ambitions. Stealing from charities is an easy concept that everybody understands, and even LoFos have a moral compass. And I do not believe the cult of Hillary is large. If it were, she would have easily defeated a nobody named Barry Obama in 2008. The ammunition is there to destroy her. The question remains if her foes will have the guts to fully employ it.

All 25 preceeding Ldotters have made great and original phrasemaking statements too numerous to ID. Study each one! There is hope, and it is not too early, there is so much to re-tell of the Clinton Opera of murder, theft, obfuscation, massive lying. Remember, Billy Bob and Evita Clinton´s draft dodging, undercover CIA work, Whitewater, Madison Guaranty, massive bank fraud, extortions, multiple rapes, attacks, threats, beatings, cover-ups, break-ins, Gennifer Flowers, Beverly Nursing Homes Enterprises, The Rose Law Firm, bribery, thefts, Tyson Foods, Arkansas Development Finance Authority (ADFA), The Stephens Inc financial empire, Paula Jones, the longtime Riady family relationship, non-stop adultery, election fraud, secretive Mena Arkansas air field drug and arms smuggling, Bill´s buddy the "bond daddie" king & felon, Dan Lasater, cocaine charges, incidental drug running, insider trading, trading in cattle futures, paying the governor for privilege, endless money driven scams. AND THAT’S JUST IN ARKANSAS ! before our merry troupe of prankster/gangsters arrived in Washington DC and took over renting out rooms in the White House for big bribe bucks. The opera
of these impeached co presidents in Washington is massive.

If the skeptics are correct, the Democrats are due to run a dud in 2016. Hillary could fit the bill. A Democrat Bob Dole.

If I was a skeptic, I´d say that every 8 years the treasury is passed like a baton from Democrat to Republican and then back again.

Conservatives didn´t do that #29. The second they discovered blank slate Obama, they dropped the Clintons like a hot brick. All Rush did was try to level the playing field a bit to keep Hillary in the game. The media did the dumping, not conservatives.

That is why the irony of articles trumpeting Hillary´s coronation as the nominee this time around is so amusing.

I don´t think that falling down the stairs again will make this one go away.

Sadly, when more scandals about Hillary Clinton appear, the mode of low expectations takes over. The list of dirt is so long and outrageous that any sense of decency is automatically nullified. That is what you expect from her and her husband, so it isn´t big news anymore.

The very fact that she is considering another Presidential run says a lot about the intelligence and morals of modern day America. I wish they would retire, move to another country, and mess up their lives.

This may not have been about Hill-err-ee-ass Herself nor Billyboobboob Klintoon
hizzelf at all... it may have been merely an innoculation self-administered by
none other than The Newd Dork Slimez.

At any time in the next __ X-number of years, the Slimez can point and say,
"Look! We´re not in the tank for the Klintoonz! We went right after them with
this massive front page expose!"

They may not even care much whether this helps, hurts or plays neutral for the
Klintoon Gang of thieves, liars, perverts and rapists.

It´s all about the Newd Dork Slimez bottom line, doncha know?
Gotta preserve that "aura of credibility" and the concept of political neutrality.
For those who won´t laugh themselves to death contemplating that!

After all, The Pervert Party of Weiner, Spitzer, Filner, JFK, Billyboobboob, etc.
ad infinitum, ad nauseum (think Edwards) needs a leading propaganda rag like the
Slimez to put a patina of respectability upon their latest larceny and fraud.

That´s what this is all about. Screw the Klintoonz... and save The Pervert Party´s
top spokes-liars... The Newd Dork Slimez.

Those who vote for people like Hillary are not capable of understanding what harm power can do in the hands of the unworthy, the greedy and the evil. They will vote for her because she´s a woman (sort of) she´s a Clinton or she´s a familiar face on one of their favorite magazines.

I hope not a single person here believes for a second that facts and truth have any bearing whatsoever on who Democrats want to represent them, because they don´t.
Democrats are secular, they have no use for God (other than those who claim to be Christian but embrace the world´s values) or God´s values. Without God, secularist have no values except what benefits them, their agenda and their wants. So they don´t know right from wrong. What they do know is what they believe benefits them... and they believe a Democrat benefits them and Republicans don´t. Because they embrace a false moral system and don´t know right from wrong, they fall prey to people like the Clintons and Obamas and all the other slick talking charlatans in Washington who tell them what they want to hear.
America must wake up to truth or Hillary will be our next president and America will take another step toward the abyss.

One of Europe´s most powerful media tycoons has accused Google of seeking to create a digital ´superstate´ outside the control of national regulators and privacy laws. Mathias Döpfner, head of the giant German multi-media company Axel Springer, says Wir haben Angst vor Google: "We are afraid of Google." [Snip] Writing an open letter to Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google, in the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Döpfner said: "Google not only knows where we are going in our cars, but also what we do while we’re driving. Forget Big Brother – Google is better!" He expressed worries about Google´s dominance

One of US president Barack Obama´s leading campaign strategists has been recruited by Labour to play a key role in Ed Miliband´s bid for Downing Street in next year´s general election. David Axelrod, who is credited with masterminding Mr Obama´s presidential victories in 2008 and 2012, will join Labour´s general election campaign team as a senior strategic adviser, the party announced. His appointment was been hailed by Labour as a major coup, and ´´seriously bad news for the Conservatives´´, at a time when Mr Miliband has been under fire from sections of his own party for his campaign tactics. It was

I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist. The university´s decision to pull the

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

Air pollution in China and other Asian countries is causing storms in North America to become stronger and changing weather patterns across the Northern Hemisphere, a new Nasa study has claimed. [Snip] The effect was most pronounced during the winter, the team said. Lead author Yuan Wang, from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, said: ´There appears to be little doubt that these particles from Asia affect storms sweeping across the Pacific and subsequently the weather patterns in North America and the rest of the world. ´The effects are quite dramatic.

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country. Russia´s military spending relative to GDP is now

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties. Russia said it was ´deeply concerned´ over reports of casualties in the region today. It comes

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have
