    We’ve shared with you that of the 425 large corporate donors to the Clinton Foundation, the Wall Street Journal found 60 of those donors lobbied the State Department during Hillary Clinton’s tenure.

    We’ve shared with you how Candidate Clinton, who cites the rights of women as a cornerstone of her campaign, accepted millions through her charities from governments who oppress women.

    We’ve also shared how Clinton lied about her promise to disclose her donors, and how she would have the State Department review things and then did not.

    We have even offered up Bill’s explanation about why all this was somehow “OK.”


    Meet Your Little Sis

    But you said “Oh, pish-posh.” You wanted someone to draw you a picture. And now someone has.

    Little Sis is a database detailing the connections between powerful people and organizations. Their goal is to bring transparency to influential social networks by tracking the relationships among politicians, business leaders, lobbyists, financiers, and their affiliated institutions. In other words, they try and follow the money.

    So here’s the Little Sis interactive graphic of the flow of money between corporations that lobbied the State Department, contributions to the various Clinton charities, and the nice things Hillary did as Secretary of State on behalf of those generous donors. It’s just like when you give $25 to PBS; you get a tote bag and they buy up more episodes of Downton Abbey.

    Use the + and – buttons in the upper left hand corner to scroll around. If the graphic is too small as it is embedded here, jump over to the Little Sis site and see it full-size.



    But He Does it Too!

    Someone out there is saying “But ________ does it too!”

    There is probably some, or even a lot, of truth there. Politics in America is controlled by money in America. But of course none of that, however accurate, makes it right.

    I think also that since everyone does it, it may then be important to look another level deeper, to how they do it. What is clear is that the Clinton candidacy is built on a global network of organizations (“charities”) that act as fronts and cut-outs to move large sums of money between wealthy corporate and foreign government donors who benefit from being nice to one or more of the Clinton’s. Apart from any good work the Clinton charities may or may not accomplish, they seem to have at least a secondary purpose as a huge money funnel.

    See, there’s crime, there’s organized crime, and there’s big league, global organized Bond-villain crime. That might help in sorting out how to think in an age when everyone commits crimes.

      The photo dispels the notion that Hillarious did nothing during her SecState days. See – her thumb was not up her ass.

      I’ve admitted many times on this site of holding on to an American Exceptionalism meme-one very different from the official one of America’s chosenness and sacred destiny. Mine was that America would not end up like all previous empires and somehow self correct at the last minute. I feel foolish.

      Mr. Poole,
      For most of my life, I (too) have held fast to the ideal of American Exceptionalism. Sadly, I don’t feel that way anymore. For what it’s worth, I absolutely loath and despise the so called… American ethos. If you really think about it–what is the current American ideal? What makes America special? Does truth, justice and the American way even exist anymore? Unfortunately, I don’t think so and as far as I am concerned, the America I once knew and respected…simply no longer exists. I’ve adopted the “every man/woman for him/herself” meme. And when America arrives at it’s inglorious end (and if in my lifetime) I am comforted by the fact that I am prepared to chuck it all and leave the US safely, quietly and without any regrets.

      The problem we non venal types have is not believing that monstrous venal types do indeed exist-such as Hillary Clinton. How can she be so steadfast and duplicitious in her pursuit of global stature? Because it seems a cartoon of spoofed villainy and pathology we ignore its reality at our peril.

      Holy mother of honesty Pitch?

      The scary, but all too preposterous scenario emerging that either Hillary Clinton or Jeb Bush will be our choices in 2016 is just way too much to even imagine.

      What the hell happened to America?????

      It’s depressing on one hand Clinton has a lead, but often the candidates that start out as faves at the beginning of campaign season, later fail to secure the party nomination.

      FYI, Jim Webb is needing volunteers and you can sign up, if interested in an alternative to Clinton, via his website. O’Malley is seeking volunteers too, if you lean toward this party that is.

      Sometimes, big things have small beginnings
