The Clinton Money Laundering Machine
The following article appeared on westerfreepress.com on May 17, 2015
Bill Clinton admitted to True non-Believers this week in the Clinton Foundation’s commitment to honesty, accountability and transparency, that the foundation is the most transparent among foundations such as his, and 55,000 emails that were timely disappeared have nothing to do with it.
Scam artists, or grifters, “play” their victims using well-tested formulas backed by words of magical thinking, cynical techniques to enrich themselves at the expense of individuals, or of society, or both.
Which brings to mind the Clintons, Hillary and Bill – or perhaps I’ve repeated myself?
As you’ll see later, there is a word for betraying one’s nation to enrich oneself.
Too lazy to look behind the curtains of smiles, platitudes, slogans and “feel-good” rhetoric, “investigative reporters” rarely noticed that their reader’s pockets have been picked dry and the pickpockets are jetting around the globe smiling. They don’t notice the fellows standing next to a smiling Bill and a winking Hill smiling all of the time at the millions of hope and mostly CHANGE jingling out of the Clinton One-Arm Bandits having been installed in the smiler’s businesses’ back offices.
These “investigative reporters” barely noticed, if at all, the other guys standing next to Bill in Haiti, or Africa, or Kazakhstan, as new businesses sprout out of nothing as if by magical thinking, to monopolize those nation’s communications or health care or uranium industries.
What about those One Arm Bandits again jingling incessantly spitting out the CHANGE – much of it already having been advanced to the Clinton Foundation?
No one suspected, never mind suggested to prove, that a possible quid pro quo might be part of this story. No one saw the regular, predictable, financially advantageous patterns in each and every case; for each and every significant “charitable contribution” to the Clinton Foundation.
Kyle Smith in the NEW YORK POST:
“Thank goodness, then, for Peter Schweizer and his blockbuster expose “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.” (Very rich: The pair have made at least $136.5 million since 2001).
The details of the Clinton operation vary, but the overall M.O. is fairly consistent, he writes.
One: Dodgy rich businessman, often a foreigner in the middle of a mega-deal in some corrupt country, possibly one run by a dictator, writes a check that buys him the status of friend of Bill Clinton (FOB). The check is payable to the Clinton Foundation or to Bill himself, as an honorarium for a meaningless idealistic speech that is essentially a homily at a whorehouse.
Two: When the cameras are turned off, Bill receives ultra-luxurious travel on someone else’s dime and attends a lavish party in his honor held by some dictator or shady businessman connected to the new FOB. Talks go on behind closed doors.
Three: Millions of dollars of donations start flowing into the Clinton Foundation from the FOB and associates.
Fourth: Potential roadblocks to the deal in the Senate or the State Department melt away. The business deal goes through. The new Clinton friend gets very, very rich.
Fifth: Hillary forgets to disclose these donations.
Six: The press doesn’t notice what just happened…”
People who pretend to be “investigative reporters” barely noticed who paid for the private jets ferrying Dad Clinton around, as Momma Clinton behind the scenes smiled for the cameras from the State Department’s press room or Sarajevo’s airfield while she fended off sniper fire and rubber stamped Uranium deals for the Ukraine.
A reported $145,000,000 poured into the coffers of THE CLINTON FOUNDATION just from one source. Millions more into Bill’s pockets for giving “feel good” speeches – the purpose of which were to generate more money to flow into the Clinton Foundation. During this time his wife headed the U.S. Department of State whose approval was a given to advance Vladimir Putin’s takeover of a significant portion of America’s uranium production and stockpiles. We noted that before the Clinton Foundation became cash rich from radioactivity and uranium interests, Hillary Clinton vociferously opposed the sale of American uranium to foreign nations.
After allegedly having paid investors through his Russian henchmen and American businessmen the sums referenced, Putin integrated the Canadian-American operation into the now-gigantic Russian monopoly URANIUM 1. The firm is 100% owned by the Russian State that is making nuclear weapons aimed at the North American continent – while also selling yellowcake, uranium precursor to Iran.
Bill and Hill and Vladimir at the Kremlin smiled for the cameras once again as all the businessmen smiled back at them once again.
There is a word for high officials selling out their nation for personal gain. Anyone know what that word is? Didn’t think so.
The people who call themselves “investigative reporters” who were gushing their approval of the Clinton’s liberal ideology of wealth redistribution to themselves and meaningless slogans on which they were weaned at America’s finest liberal arts colleges, were hardly bothered by the cash flowing into the Clinton Foundation that purportedly funded their mutual liberal agendas.
That the Clintons failed to report millions, perhaps tens of millions in income is, well, an “inconvenience” they addressed by re-fililing the foundation’s returns for the past five years. Their current filings reported a ten to fifteen percent of revenue to actually benefit charitable funding. Now that the income will likely prove to be significantly greater, the percentage of the Clintons’ contribution to charities will have shrunk. Various organizations tracking charities are not on board the Clinton’s scam, other than to say that the Clinton Foundation is nothing more than a slush fund for the Clintons.
The Clinton Foundation in fact is a sophisticated money laundering operation under the cover of, and to benefit solely, high level US officials and ex-officials whose jig is now up. Are these high crimes and misdemeanors; or as stated earlier, is there a word for selling out one’s nation for personal gain?
Kyle Smith: “Given that the Clinton Foundation is a charity, though, does it really matter where the funding comes from? Let’s say Satan gives money to the Foundation, which then spends the money combating malaria. Well, that’s a nifty bit of jiujitsu then. Satan has been tricked into doing the Lord’s work.
Then why is it illegal for American companies to do this, to donate money to politically connected overseas charities?
Schering Plough, for instance, was charged with violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act when, in 2002, it gave money to a legitimate charity in Poland in order to curry favor with a Polish government official who was also on the board of the charity. The pharma company agreed to pay $500,000 to settle the claim. Hillary Clinton, by the way, is a hawk on the FCPA, “unequivocally opposed to weakening it,” as she once put it.
If Satan writes a check to the Clinton Foundation, it is not because Satan is too dumb to get something in return.”
“Moreover, as Sean Davis of The Federalist reported, for every $10 that the Clinton Foundation spends, only $1 is going out the door in the form of direct charitable grants…The foundation claimed in a tweet this week that “More than 88 percent of our expenditures go directly to our life-changing work.”
Spending almost all of its money on itself is the foundation’s “life-changing work”?
Of course it is life-changing.
It will change the Clinton’s lives and of their offspring being groomed to become the third GRIFTER presidential candidate to follow in the footsteps of her parents.
