The Clinton Foundation’s Colombia-based investment company was not registered as a private equity fund in the country, which may have allowed it to avoid certain industry regulations and oversight from the Colombian government.
Although Fondo Acceso described itself as a “Private Equity Fund” in company promotional materials and business presentations, it is not listed in a database maintained by the Colombian government of current or previously registered private equity funds. Continue reading »
The one upside of Hillary Clinton becoming President, is that her endless stream of stupidity will result in more content for this writer than I could ever imagine.
Hot off her recent debate performance in which she claimed that the reason she is owned by Wall Street is because of 9/11, her aides are now demanding a Hollywood comedy club take down a video of comedians mocking her.
Just in case you have any doubt about what a Hillary presidency would look like, we learn from Judicial Watch: Continue reading »
The Clinton Foundation is operating a $20 million private equity firm in Colombia, raising concerns from government and consumer watchdog groups who say the practice is unusual and could pose a significant conflict of interest.
The line between the firm and the Clinton’s nonprofit world is hazy. Fondo Acceso is run out of the Clinton Foundation’s Bogota office and staffed by foundation employees, a representative at the office told the Washington Free Beacon on Tuesday.
A charitable foundation running a private equity fund is “not something one hears about commonly” and is “very concerning,” according to Craig Holman, the government affairs lobbyist at the watchdog group Public Citizen.
Ken Boehm, chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group, said the lack of transparency was a troubling. He said the public has a right to know whether any of Fondo Acceso’s companies received U.S. government support while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.

The ties between the Clinton Foundation, Canadian billionaire businessman Frank Giustra and the nation of Colombia run deep. This is a topic I explored earlier in the year in the post, This is How Hillary Does Business – An Oil Company, Human Rights Abuses in Colombia and the Clinton Foundation. Here’s an excerpt:

The self-inflicted wounds of Hillary Rodham Clinton just keep manifesting themselves. She has two serious issues that have arisen in the past week; one is political and the other is legal. Both have deception at their root.
Her political problem is one of credibility. We know from her emails that she informed her daughter Chelsea and the then-prime minister of Egypt within 12 hours of the murder of the U.S. ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, that he had been killed in Benghazi by al-Qaida. We know from the public record that the Obama administration’s narrative blamed the killings of the ambassador and his guards on an anonymous crowd’s spontaneous reaction to an anti-Muhammad video.

The real interesting part of the latest Quinnipiac University National Poll, is not the fact that 60% of Americans think Hillary Clinton is dishonest, but that 40% of Americans don’t.
You’d truly have to be a certified zombie, or living your life entirely under a rock, to not recognize how completely shady and corrupt this woman is. Fear not, I’ll provide a plethora of links at the end of this post, but here’s a recent example that went completely under the radar.
In a desperate attempt to appear populist, Clinton tweeted the following last week: Continue reading »
“She’s too big to jail,” said national security attorney Edward MacMahon Jr., who represented former CIA employee Jeffrey Sterling in 2011 in a leak case that led to an espionage prosecution and 3½-year prison term. He cited a pattern of light punishments for top government officials who have mishandled classified information while lower level whistleblowers such as Sterling have faced harsh prosecutions for revealing sensitive information to expose waste, fraud or abuse in government.
At least 671 emails that Clinton sent or received through her private server contained classified material, according to the State Department’s latest update Friday from its ongoing review of more than 30,000 emails. Her aides also sent and received classified information.
In response to a public records lawsuit, the department released another 7,200 pages of Clinton’s emails after partially or entirely redacting any containing sensitive U.S. or foreign government information on a range of issues.
The circus is back in town in Washington D.C. (actually, it’s part of a permanent residency), as a congressional panel spent Thursday peppering presidential candidate Hillary Clinton with questions about her role in the Benghazi consulate attack. The attack left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, and has been the subject of political scandal ever since, with Republicans claiming then-Secretary of State Clinton didn’t do enough to sufficiently fortify the security detail of the consulate.
It’s pure political theater, but sadly, no one on this congressional panel will ask the real questions to which Americans deserve answers.And this is because the real scandal presents questions that can’t be asked, because the answers indict the entire U.S. government.

A ‘political witch hunt’?
* * *
US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is largely motivated by partisanship and is a “political witch hunt” by her detractors, an American political scientist says.
“I believe that probably 80 percent of this Hillary Clinton personal or private email server discussion is politically motivated and a waste of time,” Wilmer Leon said on Thursday.
“The fact that the server has been hacked is not inconsistent with the fact that the United States Office of Personal Management; their server was hacked, subjecting almost 21.5 million Americans to identity theft,” Leon told Press TV. Continue reading »
A Hillary Clinton staffer planted questions in a CBS 60 Minutes interview with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, according to email records released this week. At the time of the interview in early 2011, Assange had already leaked sensitive, embarrassing information from the State Department. The unclassified staff email to Clinton, released amid her ongoing email scandal, demonstrates not only that the former Secretary of State and her staff were out to discredit Assange, but that the government manipulates media and wields heavy influence over it.

Another day, another “what difference does it make” lie exposed for the mainstream media to ignore and excuse as simple witch-huntery. However, this ‘lie’ is unarguable and proves once again that Hillarinochio seems to believe she is above the law. The Obama administration has discovered a chain of emails(exchanged with retired Gen. David Petraeus when he headed the military’s U.S. Central Command, responsible for running the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan)that Clinton failed to turn over when she provided what she said was the full record of work-related correspondence as secretary of state, officials told The Associated Press on Friday.Is it any wonder her support has been plunging recently?
– State: Email czar’s donations to Clinton have ‘no relevance’ (Washington Examiner, Sep 12, 2012):
The State Department on Wednesday dismissed the idea that its new transparency czar should be disqualified from helping to decide whether and how to release Hillary Clinton’s emails, even though she contributed to Clinton’s White House campaign.
State on Tuesday named Janice Jacobs as its new lead official on improving the process of preserving records and deciding how records will be disclosed to the public. But just hours later, it became clear that Jacobs donated $2,700 to Clinton — the most allowed under the law — just a few weeks ago. Continue reading »
– Evidence of Clinton emailing Israel’s Iranian attack plans to reporter ignored (Examiner, Sep 6, 2015):
When White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told a room full of reporters on Friday, “I will just say on principle that the success of our democracy depends on the rule of law and there is no public official that is above the rule of law. Certainly not the President of the United States,” there should have been a cry from those attending for Earnest to stop his calculated dishonesty and non-transparency, according to more than one law enforcement official. Those accused of misconduct — even criminal activity –in the Obama administration have relied on stonewalling, deceit and news media disinformation to avoid punishment that lower level government workers are forced to endure, cops claim.
The news coverage regarding the use by presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton of a non-government email system complete with private Internet server has placed other allegations of malfeasance or unlawful behavior by Clinton and her aides in the backseat of the campaign’s “Scooby Doo” van, according to a former intelligence official with a specialization in Islamic terrorist groups, Lloyd Victor McKeller. Allegations that Mrs. Clinton, as Secretary of State, leaked classified data to one of her news media sycophants was ignored, while others who have done far less are sitting in jail cells.

– Clinton, using private server, wrote and sent e-mails now deemed classified (Washington Post, Sept 1, 2015):
While she was secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton wrote and sent at least six e-mails using her private server that contained what government officials now say is classified information, according to thousands of e-mails released by the State Department.…
– Hillary Clinton Minion Who Set Up Her Personal Email Server Will Plead The Fifth (ZeroHedge, Sep 3, 2015):
Back in early 2014, when IRS director Lois Lerner pleaded the Fifth, it became clear that not all is well with the official narrative. Fast forward to this week when another prominent democrat caught up in another email scandal has just indicated they would plead the Fifth. And no, its not Hillary Clinton, at least not yet, but her former staffer, Bryan Pagliano, who oversaw her private email server. As reported by Politico, he too plans to invoke his Fifth Amendment right not to answer incriminating questions before the House Benghazi Committee, according to a letter his lawyer sent the panel.
Imagine what he must have found!

– Bombshell: Clinton E-Mails Were “Classified From The Get-Go”, Reuters Says (ZeroHedge, Aug 21, 2015):
Just last night, we reported that Hillary Clinton’s campaign had finally admitted that the former First Lady’s private e-mail server – which she used to handle sensitive information while serving as Secretary of State – did indeed contain documents that have since been marked classified.
The admission comes after Clinton sought to appease GOP lawmakers by turning over her personal server to the FBI. Subsequently, reports suggested the server had been wiped clean while an audit of the e-mails Clinton handed in to the State Department showed that some of the threads looked to contain chatter about the CIA’s drone program.

– Bob Woodward Compares Clinton Emails To Nixon Tapes, Warns “Answers Won’t Be Pretty” (ZeroHedge, Aug 18, 2015):
“Follow the trail here,” veteran Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward told MSNBC, as he compared Hillary Clinton’s private email account to the Nixon tapes. As The Hill reports, Woodward concluded that the fight over Clinton’s emails wouldn’t end soon: “This has to go on a long, long time…and the answers are probably not going to be pretty.”…

Sometimes laughter is the best medicine, especially when you’re running a Presidential campaign that’s rapidly losing momentum thanks to an FBI investigation into your e-mailing habits and a suddenly popular socialist who is surging in the polls.
And while we appreciate a good joke now and again, we think this might come across as a bit sinister to some “everyday American” folks…
