Clinton: Mexico must continue the fight against crime: Pledges Another$500 Million
Right into the wrong hands.......
I may be wrong but is it the sos’s job to go around handing out money?
“Right into the wrong hands.......”
It’s every Marxist’s duty to go around handing out money.
The more corrupt, the more you get.
Our crooked government giving ½ billion to Mexico so their crooked government can continue lining their pockets with yours and my tax money .
Thank you blubber ass. You are also very rich because crooked you and crooked Bill also took us taxpayers to the cleaners.
Good news for Swiss bankers...
Yes, excellent question. Where does blubber ass get the authority to give our tax money away?
“Good news for Swiss bankers...”
I could almost be jealous. At those robberies, I could almost be bought to live with a crooked but clear conscience.
I can give myself the luxury of having said what I just said because I don’t live in those circles.
I have to blame my parents for having raised me as an honest person.
Hey Hitlery....pledge all ya want. Good luck getting the money from congress tho....*
Elections have consequences....
*Disclaimer—this sentiment is entirely dependent on Republicans growing balls.
Nice to have a lot of money to throw around ain’t it,,,also we’re gonna to throw some to Russia over treir airport bombing,,,the we’re confiscate peoples’ IRAs etc,,them we’re gonna cry about our 1.5T deficit.
Another $500 million to the drug cartels. I thought they had plenty of money already.
I thought only Congress had the authority to spend money. Where does she get her authority from? The new Congress should refuse to fund her generosity with the taxpayers money. She can use her own and Bill’s if she’s so compassionate.
boehner had better stop payment on that check!

SCAM-A-RAMA $500M US tax dollars for Mexico to "help" them fight "crime."
Mexico's using the Mideast Playbook very effectively----extorting billions using the well-worn Mideast Scam. Federales are getting rich on US dollars, hitting all the tried-and-true Mideast buttons:
(1) plotting to become a ward of the US;
(2) faking victimization;
(3) secretly revving up internal conflicts;
(4) play-acting the ignoramus;
(5) can't "control" their enemies without US money;
(6) exchanging votes for US cash.
STOP THE MADNESS!
The congress and Obama are quibbling over pennies while Hillary is giving away millions of dollars we don’t even have.
Mexico is a crime. It is a criminal society at every level and every Mexican is a criminal. How do you fight that?
