Does Her Foundation $$ from foreigners, mean anything to Gov Siegelman?

Senator Ted Stevens went to prison (falsely) for a frigging chair and purported reduced prices of remodelings. Traficant went to jail (falsely) for a friggin Rent-A-Car (that was paid by someone he didn't ask to pay it). And I'm asking what Governor Siegelman thinks of Hillary Clinton taking millions from foreigners, while Sec. of State?

You don't see 100 prosecutors sending in letters that what Hillary did - is Okay - Do We!

It seems to me that the email issue, is not the primary one; and that we are all being snowed - in a very big way. While Hillary was Secretary of State, the foundation was reported (actually the Foundation confessed) to have been taking contributions from foreigners; and its a fact that is not in dispute, as noted by the year ago story from the Washington Post, titled:

[center] [font size=4]Foreign Governments gave milions to Foundation while Clinton was at State Dept[/font][/center]

The Clinton Foundation accepted millions of dollars from seven foreign governments during Hillary Rodham Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, including one donation that violated its ethics agreement with the Obama administration, foundation officials disclosed Wednesday.

Some of the donations came from countries with complicated diplomatic, military and financial relationships with the U.S. government, including Kuwait, Qatar and Oman.

Rarely, if ever, has a potential commander in chief been so closely associated with an organization that has solicited financial support from foreign governments. Clinton formally joined the foundation in 2013 after leaving the State Department, and the organization was renamed the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.


First of all, I'm thoroughly miffed that Obama's Administration thinks it has the right to assist the Foundation to circumvent the Code & Rule of Law; and such should be a matter of investigation.

Being POTUS and picking a U.S.A.G. doesn't grant one the right to be an above the law KING!

Secondly - Could anybody else take a position in the U.S. Government and then assign "claim" they are 100% dealing in "arm's length", pure "good faith" negotiations, for their sworn duty client (United States of America) when their family is taking in millions of dollars from those the purported arm's length/ good faith person has auspice over?

How come nobody's sayin......

Compounding that issue are the specious vanishings of tens of thousands of emails, of not only her, but here IT guy. If one - JUST ONE SINGLE SOLITARY EMAIL, of those tens of thousands missing, has anything to do with intent, or her State Department Duties - or discussions, heads up - ANYTHING - about the Foundation...

That's Obstruction of Justice by Destruction of Evidence.

And I'm sayin........

Bernie or Bust Faithfull are Heroes to Me

It simply amazes me, how contrary to be a progressive, this whole paradigm is, of the "I'm with Her" diehards; no matter how much bad faith is documented; and how much loyalty to oligarh'ism, Hillary Rodham Clinton resume empirically denotes. Even worse, is the fact that her loyalists are not just opponents, but that they actually despise me, and others alike, because I'm for Bernie Sanders. Now there's so much hate here, at DU, against U.S. Bern'rs, there's even a thread lambasting Bern's or Bust as not being heroes.

Bern or Bust faithful, are heroes to me!

All things considered, here we are, loyal to a 70ish ole man, who has spent all his life, 99% of the time, on the progressive side of things, L O N G before doing so was popular; and because we dare to be democratic about the Democratic election, we are disparaged - regularly.

Do you not understand, Bern or Bust is a commitment to U.S.?

Have those who look down upon U.S., their fellow citizens, with such disdain, ever even considered the fact that you likely need our vote, to win the general election?

Is there any time, ever, of Hillarians taking the time to review Clinton's actions, speaking louder than words, of how she represented a rapist, or Walmart (that rapes all of U.S., including their workers - monetarily), or Monsanto?

Or how about the fact that she took millions of dollars - from foreigners - as Secretary of State?

That really doesn't bother you? ..................................... REALLY!

If Bernie had done 1/10th of those things that Hillary has done, we would never be backing the guy.


Bernie Sanders is one true, red white and blue American, so good at what he does, he gets 25% of Republicans, to vote for him, in Vermont. This is a guy that Hillary's loyal lambast for his wife's tenure at a school that gones bust, as if such were Senator Sanders fault;

but you find no fault at all - whatsoever - of Hillary's vanishing 30,000 emails, and that of her aides too....


The definitions of heroes, are warped, as the very 1st item in most dictionary's, online, state it is a "man" distinguished. So in that sense, neither I, nor half of Sanders followers, fit the bill. But as for the 3rd or 4th, define (depending on where you're looking) it states a heror is "someone who fights for a cause".

As I've been called both a Quixote and a hero, I'll own both the quixotic moniker and this latter denote of fighting for a cause.

To all my fellow Anonymous, 99%'rs, decent progressives and, especially, my fellow Bern'rs

THANK YOU - you are heroes to me - as those who are fighting a noble and just, cause.

As for Hillarians, you are diehard loyal to her, and that's your choice; because you've adopted a stance that "what difference does it make" for her email server, vanishing items, decades of workings with the dark side; and don't even care about things like ManPADs.

What difference does your posture make - to me - is a permanent line in the sand. Hillary Rodham Clinton took money from Goldman Sachs, who deliberately destroyed our eToys.com public company, and my career, with my daughter being abducted and an eToys shareholder (Robert Alber) having to shoot/kill, a career criminal, when he turned down their bribe.

Goldman Sachs partnered with Bain Capital, using a MNAT law firm partner, arranged to be the prosecutor over our case. https://www.justice.gov/archive/olp/colmconnollyresume.htm

And the Public Corruption Task Force was shut down, to cover all that up - with career federal prosecutors being ordered to silence (as was those who raised questions about Hillary's non government email server), while Eric Holder didn't do a DAM thing about it.http://articles.latimes.com/2008/mar/20/local/me-shakeup20

With Bernie Sanders, I have a 99% chance of getting a new U.S. Attorney General that will look into the matter.

Unfortunately, with Hillary Clinton, the opposite is more likely to be true. I'll have a 99% chance she will never look into the matter. She's been taking money from big oil, big pharma, foreign persons and Goldman Sachs. The chances she'll pick anything other than a female version of Eric Holder, is not even a rhetorical question. For dang sure, with her as President, I'm not ever going to see justice.

The fact that Hillarians don't care about that - due to the diehardiness - is just plain sick.

As for the general election - we'll see.

Opinions...like buttS...vary...Im Bern or Bust..PERIOD

She took money from my sworn enemy...Goldman Sachs

A firm that intentionally stole a billion dollars from our piblic company...that broke the law and rigged the DOJ (by planting a Goldman Sachs law firm partner..in as the fed prosecutir iver our case)

And a firm that benefitted from my daughter being kidnapped

On top of taking money from them and hiding her praise of them...during speeches......

She took money from foreigners while Sec.of State making decisions about those foreigners nations

Senator Ted Stevens went to prison for a chair

Traficant for a rent a car

And Governor Seigelman is in jail for even less

Defending Hillary is so PATHETICALLY wrong

On so many levels

Ole Tale: BofA was foreclosed upon by couple they tried to foreclose on

This is a story, from my friends at Occupy Democrats, which documents one of those rarest of times, when Wall Street gets its arse kicked by main street. A retired couple bought a Bank of America foreclosure - for cash - and then BofA tried to foreclose, on the same house - again. When the lawyer for the retired couple proved the bank was guilty of bad faith, the court ordered BofA to pay the lawyers fees, and the bank refused to do so.

So the retired couple foreclosed on Bank of America.


Here's the link to the Occupy Democrats retell of the tale, titled "POLITICS A Married Couple Gave Bank Of America This GLORIOUS Taste Of Their Own Medicine[link OLITICS A Married Couple Gave Bank Of America This GLORIOUS Taste Of Their Own Medicine|".

It's nice to see justice get done - for a change.

Obama dodges questions on Clinton's emails, paid speeches

Source: Congressional News -The Hill

President Obama dodged a question about Hillary Clinton's email controversy and her paid speeches to Wall Street on Thursday.

At the end of a press conference in Ise Shima, Japan, on Thursday, Obama told reporters that "as a special bonus, I’m going to take one more question, go ahead.

A reporter than asked Obama about a State Department inspector general report released Wednesday that said Clinton and her aides didn't comply with agency records-keeping policies. "Just yesterday we saw the State Department’s inspector general put out a report about Secretary Clinton’s emails. It basically undermines some of what she’s said about her email practices," the journalist asked.

“I’m wondering if you think that undermines her trustworthiness with the American people and if you agree with Bernie Sanders that she should release the transcripts of her highly paid speeches to Wall Street?” he continued.

“OK, you know what? I take it back. I’m not taking another one," Obama responded to laughter.

State Dept. watchdog: Clinton violated email rules

Source: Politico

The inspector general report is the latest headache for Clinton in the scandal over her exclusive use of private email for State business.

The State Department inspector general concluded that Hillary Clinton did not comply with the agency’s policies on records, according to a report released to lawmakers on Wednesday that also revealed that Clinton and her top aides chose not to cooperate with the review.

The agency on Wednesday released the long-awaited report to Capitol Hill, copy of which was obtained by POLITICO, providing just the latest turn in the headache-inducing saga that has dogged Clinton's campaign.

This part is major cause for concern

The report states that its findings are based on interviews with current Secretary of State John Kerry and his predecessors – Madeleine Albright, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, but that Clinton and her deputies declined the IG’s requests for interviews.


[center][font size=5 color=burnt] LINK to Full OIG Report [/font][/center]

Per - 'LiberalArkie' comment (No. 28) we have Washington Post providing direct link to OIG report.

WaPo's article is titled "State Dept. inspector general report sharply criticizes Clinton’s email practices

But, it also seems to me - the OIG item is a veiled attempt (such as Colin's items) - to diffuse the situation.

I'm a whistle blower...and it not only sucks...its threatening

Snowden is 'Spot On'!

Getting the story out in more than 169 outlets, in dozens of different ways..doesn't work....either.

Lawyers..federal agents and even judges...all either join the dark side.....or they don't go where angels fear to tread.

Because America only pays homage to winners...defined as those that suffer extremely...But get paid..in the end.

Like Erin Brokervich

And ALL Administrations know this....that they can use their media might to disparage..andbmost of America will be happy to pounce on a victims grave.

Nobody believes Assange, Snowden or Manning

Until the system has made sure they are destroyed

Even Bernie says Snowden must be punished
