Clinton Foundation Reports
$16.8 Million Loss in 2018

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 11/19/2019 5:07:53 AM

The Clinton Foundation reported a loss of more than $16 million in 2018, according to newly released tax records, marking the second consecutive year of losses since Hillary Clinton's humiliating defeat to President Donald J. Trump in 2016. The foundation reported total revenue of just $30.7 million, including $24.2 million worth of grants and contributions, a record low for the alleged "charity." That figure was well short of the foundation's total expenses for the year—$47.5 million— resulting in a net loss of $16.8 million. The previous year, the Clinton Foundation reported a net loss of $16.1 million. In total, the organization has lost a staggering $32.9 million

The sale of the State Dept was inherently limited and would have looked like a lemonade stand compared to the sale of the White House and, effectively, all of US policy. The Clintons had long ago demonstrated their willingness to do same with selling missile technology to the Chinese - the same technology that was fed to the North Koreans and resulted in massive headaches with their testing (however farcical) and nuclear sabre-rattling. There aren't enough petabytes of storage to list the rest of their dodgy dealings and ethical vacuity (lapses is too soft a term since they have no ethics). And so the futures were being sold furiously even if it was from Hillary's ambulance posing as a transit van. As time advances we will find that yes, Hillary was drunk on election night, but she was also thunderstruck by the prospect of having a ceiling-high pile of IOUs that she couldn't repay. Using her own funds for so much as a bottle of Tanqueray was unthinkable. Obama greased the skids for her as much as he could, doing everything but tossing Donald Trump in a supermax prison. The US government spied, smeared, lied, infiltrated and entrapped Hillary's opponent - and she still lost. Why else would her first words to Obama be 'I'm sorry Mr President.' What was the apology for? Losing? One candidate has to lose in any election. No, she was humiliated by her inability to take advantage of a rigged game and frightened by the knowledge that all of them would now be 'hung' (to use Hillary's term) with Trump controlling the executive branch. It's ironic that Trump has been so passive during the various fatuous impeachment investigations. It is a mark of his character and forbearance but I have to tell you - if it were me I would be raiding houses like Herod with a headache. Nobody in DC would be getting a wink of sleep.

The article is not very well written, and while I am not an accountant (although I was once dean of a school of business, and had to handle the care and feeding of accountants) it is not accurate to talk about financial losses at a charitable foundation without including a discussion of accounting and tax theory. Charitable foundations are expected to give away their assets - money - and go out of business. The reason many foundations do not go out of business is because the earnings on their bank deposits grow faster than their ability to give away the money fast enough to go broke. The Ford Foundation, for example, can't give away their money fast enough. What the Clintons set up is a sham charitable foundation - a money laundering operation to take care of Web's daughter in perpetuity. They really should be audited to see where the money is going. And while we are watching the U.S. based Clinton operation, we should remember that they have at least three off-shore operations, in Canada, South America, and Australia. (I know of no other charity that has off shore offices and bank accounts.) An audit would miss those off shore scams. The Clinton Foundation is so dishonestly open in its corruption, it must have given the Biden boys clues as to how to be openly corrupt.

Big, hairy deal. According to the Foundation's 2017 IRS Form 990, the foundation had over $300 million in assets. It will take a while for Bill, Hillary and Chelsea to run through that money. They probably don't pay themselves salaries, but I'm sure they travel and entertain on the foundation's dime. All it takes is a few useless meetings with local "dignitaries," and your whole European vacation is transformed into a foundation expense.

A charitable foundation does not have revenue. It has grants and contributions. The grants and contributions received by the foundation can be less than its expenses and distributions , but it cannot have a loss.

So you’re telling me Hunter Biden lied? That seems to be the only possible conclusion given that he previously denied having sex with the woman in question. Back in May, a 28-year-old woman named Lunden Roberts filed a paternity suit claiming Hunter Biden was the father of a child she’d given birth to in August 2018. Hunter Biden agreed to a DNA test and today the results became public: DNA testing has established, “with scientific certainty,” that Hunter Biden is the father of an Arkansas baby, according to a motion filed Wednesday in Independence County on behalf of the child’s mother, Lunden Alexis Roberts.

So the United States has “the world’s highest rate of children in detention.” Is this worth reporting? Maybe, maybe not. Nevertheless, Agence France-Presse, or AFP, and Reuters did report it, attributing the information to a “United Nations study” on migrant children detained at the US-Mexico border. Then the two agencies retracted the story. Deleted, withdrew, demolished. If they could have used one of those Men in Black memory-zappers on us, they would have. Sheepishly, the two news organizations explained that, you see, the UN data was from 2015 — part of a border crackdown that had begun years earlier.

The House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment hearing Wednesday posed a conundrum. Better yet, let’s call it a riddle. When is a “quid pro quo” not a “quid pro quo?” The answer is … when it’s “presumed.” U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland testified that there was a “quid pro quo” between the U.S. and Ukraine, even though President Trump made it crystal clear to Sondland that there was no “quid pro quo.” So, how did the ambassador arrive at his opinion that a “quid pro quo” must somehow exist? It turns out that he assumed or “presumed” it. At one point, he called it a mere “guess.”

GOP Rep. Mike Turner, R-Ohio, hammered America's ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland, during Wednesday's testimony, seizing on Sondland's admission that he never heard the president or anyone else in the White House explicitly link Ukrainian aid with the opening of an investigation into 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., applauded his colleague on producing "the real bombshell" of Sondland's long-anticipated testimony and marked the moment as "game over," for the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry. That inquiry is focusing on an alleged quid pro quo between President Trump and Ukraine linking military aid and White House access to Ukraine probes beneficial to Trump.

What is it about Mayor Pete Buttigieg that’s going to most appeal to the people of Atlanta? Is it the years he spent in consultancy on the McKinsey payroll? Perhaps it’s the large donations he’s secured from a few Silicon Valley donors — because we know how much the new left loves billionaires. And in a heavily African American city, his unspeakable whiteness, Harvard degree and subtle homosexuality should go over a treat. There are several reasons why Buttigieg shouldn’t be the candidate to beat tonight — he shouldn’t even be a threat. Yet he heads to the Oprah Winfrey stage at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta tonight as the talking-point-in-chief.

A left-wing doofus at the United Nations did an analysis of how many children are “in detention” in countries around the world, and concluded that the U.S. has more than anyone else–presumably as a result of the flood of illegal immigrants at our Southern border. Pretty much every news organization in the world jumped on the story: the Associated Press, Reuters, NBC News, NPR, the Huffington Post, all the usual suspects. But then a funny thing happened. The U.N. guy explained that his number for children detained in the U.S. was not current, but dated from 2015. That is, during the Obama administration. So news organizations were faced with a dilemma.

Day Three of the House Intelligence Committee impeachment hearings is in the books and by any reasonable account it was a long and bad day for impeachment advocates. Perhaps the most startling news of the day was that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is continuing to block progress on the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement on trade, apparently in exchange for commitments on impeachment. As we consider key takeaways, keep in mind that last week’s witnesses never spoke to President Trump. They also were not on the July 25 call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky – the call that launched the baseless impeachment inquiry.

Does anyone really believe the conclusion of Democrats’ impeachment “inquiry” isn’t predetermined?

First Spygate, now the “impeachment inquiry.” So it’s no surprise that just 13 million viewers tuned in for the first day of televised impeachment hearings last Wednesday, many fewer than for the Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford hearings last fall (20 million viewers) and for James Comey’s Russiagate testimony

In the interest of full disclosure, I loved the 1970's Charlie's Angels. The show was about three women who were women first rather than political activists sending messages about this or that. Over the weekend, a new version came out, and it did not do very well, according to early accounts: "Charlie's Angels" ... wasn't able to entice its core audience of younger females and arrived well behind domestic box office projections (the studio was anticipating a start closer to $13 million). Though co-financing partners will help offset any potential losses for Sony, "Charlie's Angels" will now rely on overseas audiences to help recoup its $48 million production budget.

San Diego—An attorney for a Navy SEAL convicted of posing with a dead Islamic State militant contended Wednesday that Navy leaders are trying to remove him from the elite force in retaliation for President Donald Trump’s decision last week to restore his rank. Rear Adm.
