Business groups paying Hillary $200,000 per speech for some reason
Canada Free Press ^ | 07/12/2103 | Dan Calabrese

Hey, if she can get them to pay it, far be it from me to argue that anyone should stop it from happening. Supply and demand, baby. It’s the same reason I have no problem with ballplayers making more money than some guy working to cure cancer - because when private parties freely enter into an agreement, God bless them. And they are, as the Washington Post reports: In the six months since stepping down as secretary of state, Clinton has addressed apartment-complex developers in Dallas, private-equity managers in Los Angeles and business executives in Grand Rapids, Mich. Still to come are travel agents, real estate brokers, clinical pathologists and car dealers — collecting more than $200,000 per appearance, according to one executive who arranges speaking tours.

“For some reason”

It’s called a bribe.

She tells them “what difference does it make” for an hour and it makes them feel better.

Well, aren’t the fees basically a down-payment - to be followed by campaign donations - for favorable legislation from President Hillary? Since the advent of Obama, fascism is the name of the game, and - to be favored by the government, and hence exempt from onerous rules that apply to non-favored businesses - you have to pony up.

People also pay Paris Hilton $200,000 to show up at their party or club...Doesn’t mean she does or says anything of value. They want to waste their money on the brain dead so be it.

Paris Hilton is a (very uninteresting) celebrity, Hillary Clinton is a politician. So the speaking fees for Hillary probably have a different import.

These people are targeted and pressured to pay. It is a cross between a bribe and extortion.

Look at the businesses who paid big money and provided jobs to Clinton people when Bill was president. Enron, the dot coms who were committing fraud, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Citibank and several other fraudulent businesses contributed to the Clintons and gave his friends jobs.

The system is corrupt. The system is broken.

she just thought “cattle futures” were a good deal.

Getting paid for a future influence is a much sweeter deal.

I could get an almost unlimited number of out-of-work people to go tell lies for a fraction of what Hitlery! charges.

But most of them can’t lie anywhere near as well.

I’ll tell a bunch of lies and spout democrat talking points (pardon my redundancy) to the same people for 25% of what they’re paying her.

Apparently bribing Hillary is preferred by these corporate boneheads to returning the money to the shareholders.

I’m quite sure that they pay her to hear her expertise on those professions /s

I was going to post they were crazy for paying that to someone who had never successfully ran a business or enacted or proposed anything that would help business. But as you point out her and her so-called husband have become very wealthy in just twenty years or so. Obviously they have some money making knowledge to impart.

“they have some money making knowledge to impart.”

No one would ever pay the Clintons for knowledge or anything they say. They are paying to get access to taxpayer dollars if Clintons return to power and for Clintons to look the other way and let them break the rules. Enron practiced fraud for years under the Clinton's and nothing happened. Only when Bush came into power did Enron collapse. They are also paying for protection. If the Clintons come into power they don't want to get targeted.

It is a bribe and extortion.

A fool and his money are soon parted, and anyone willing to pay $200K to hear this cow speak is insane. Of course maybe it’s just a money laundering scheme.
