CNN scraps Hillary Clinton documentary after the director quits
Yahoo! News ^ | 9/30/13 | Holly Bailey

Posted on 09/30/2013 9:32:07 AM PDT by NormsRevenge

CNN Films canceled a planned documentary about Hillary Clinton on Monday after the project’s director abruptly dropped out of the project and said the Clinton camp had pressured people not to talk to him.

Charles Ferguson, who had been tapped earlier this year to direct the film, wrote in a piece published on The Huffington Post that he decided to scrap the documentary because potential interview subjects refused to be interviewed.

He blamed pressure from Clinton aides and supporters as well as the Republican National Committee, which banned CNN from hosting any 2016 presidential primary debates over the film — which had been set to air next year. (The RNC also voted to boycott NBC, which is planning a fictional miniseries about Clinton.)

"When I approached people for interviews, I discovered that nobody, and I mean nobody, was interested in helping me make this film," Ferguson wrote. "Not Democrats, not Republicans — and certainly nobody who works with the Clintons, wants access to the Clintons, or dreams of a position in a Hillary Clinton administration. Not even journalists who want access, which can easily be taken away."

Hillary thinks CNN might seek the truth and not produce a fluff piece? She's out of her mind if she thinks CNN would ask staffers anything but softball questions.

Fear seems to be rampant among DemonRat politician's staffers. So much to hide. So many lies that can't be kept straight. Some of them are probably ashamed of all the corruption and the charred, blood-soaked bodies.

The tales of Hillary will be told in 25 years, when she is no longer able to make people commit random and unexplainable suicide.

During a panel discussion last Tuesday at the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative, Hillary was asked “how important” it would be for the US to elect a woman president. She suggested that it could help eliminate some of the economic barriers women face in the US and globally....

HILLARY'S 2016 CAMPAIGN / THE CLINTON FOUNDATIONS / AND MUSLIM TERRORISM --- The recent news expose that a Muslim terrorist was working at the Clinton Foundation AND conducting terrorist activities at the same time, explains why the Clintons just remade themselves into the hallowed "Clinton Family Foundation."

The "Holy Family."

The Clintons' 24/7 self-promotion--a familiar do-good liberal schtick: whining about "helping" the needy, and hoping to make a buck on it.

All of the Clintons' shady proclivities are unveiled in the recent NYT investigative report. Corruption, greed, entitlement, nepotism, cronyism. The Clintons didn't have a pot to *** in in Arkansas---never even had a home to call their own. Now they're multi millionaires.......the connivers have perfected the scam WRT gaming the system for themselves.

=====================================

There needs to be a thorough going-over of the three Clinton Foundations' funding. We need to know who pays/funds the Clinton's real lifestyle especially now that Hillary is running for prez. It is important to know to whom the Clinton's are truly indebted.

NY POST EXCERPT ----The Bill Clinton Foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses — Bill Clinton’s foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses since 2003, an analysis of the nonprofit’s tax forms reveal.....includes $4.2 million in 2011 for the William J. Clinton Foundation (to which Hillary and Chelsea are attached); $730,000 for the Clinton Global Health Initiative; and $7.2 million for the Clinton Health Action Initiative (CHAI).

==============================================

How many ways can the conniving Clintons use their name to launder money?

<><> The William J. Clinton Family Foundation......

<><> the Clinton Global Health Initiative......

<><> the Clinton Health Action Initiative (CHAI).

More importantly, what is the connection between Corzine's MF Global, Teneo (which paid Bill Clinton $50,000 per month), The Clintons multiple tax-exempt foundations, and Muslim money-Laundering?

The more cynical among us might wonder if Teneo, Obama pal Corzine and his bankrupt investment company (MFG "misplaced" $1.4 Billion), and the Clintons' Foundations are money laundering for the Muslim Brotherhood. Read on.

===================================================

LET'S STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE WITH BILL AND HILL--- As President, Bill Clinton made policies that raised hundreds of billions (if not trillions) of dollars for his obscenely-rich donor/pals.

His North American Free Trade initiative made it easy for, and even encouraged, corporations to outsource jobs and then import their products back into the U.S...... The repeal of Glass-Steagall on his watch sent Wall Street into the money-making frenzy that led to the Great Recession/Depression of 2008......and subsequent taxpayer bailouts.

In exchange for these obscene gifts of corporate welfare, at the expense of America's middle and working classes, you'd think the Clintons' rich friends would have no trouble coughing up a mere $250 million endowment for the foundation.

Now it seems, the captains of crony capitalism are begging off....they just don't feel they have enough money to help their old friends Bill and Hillary secure their so-called "legacy."

Sen Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) is probing longtime Hillary Rodham Clinton aide’s employment status, asking how Huma Abedin got a sweetheart deal as a private six-figure consultant while at the State Department.

Abedin is married to disgraced ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner, loser in the NYC mayoral race. The two hauled in as much as $350,000 in outside income on top of Abedin’s $135,000 government salary after Weiner quit Congress over a sexting scandal.

Abedin was assigned “special government employee” status, and was able to haul in cash as a private contractor. One of her clients was Teneo Holdings, a consulting firm founded by Bill Clinton aide Doug Band.

Teneo’s Web site calls itself the “next chapter in strategic advisory,”

The amazing thing here is that I’m certain the producers are Hillary fans who wanted to make a glowing tribute. But today is about managing risk. So, why didn’t the Clintons want ardent supporters to make a two hour Clinton infomercial? It’s because those close enough to be interviewed have seen the real Hillary Clinton. What would that be? An alcoholic; certainly. A married lesbian; too much smoke for there to be no fire. A violent, abusive b*tch? Abosoluetly. A woman who is incompetent? Yes.

So, what stories might those close enough to have seen the real deal come up with; even if they want to paint a positive picture? “Oh, then there was the time in Mexico where she was so drunk she fell down and we were all laughing so hard. She peed her pantsuit it was so funny!” “So, Huma is sneaking out after 3:00 am, right, and she runs right into the head of the secret service detail. Now she wasn’t supposed to be there, so he handcuffs her, right? Oh, man was Hillary pissed! He got fired.” “Then there’s the time she was throwing a hissy fit and she threw this ashtray at the intern and cloncked her right on the forehead. Man, I’ll tell you, that took a few hundred grand to paste over.”

Gehad el-Haddad
(The stupid Clintons did not know Gehad was Farsi for "jihad"?)

A senior Muslim Brotherhood official employed by the William J. Clinton Foundation was arrested in Cairo, charged with inciting violence.

Gehad el-Haddad served as one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s top communications officials; he was a top Brotherhood official and adviser to Barack Obama's hand-picked Egyptian candidate, Morsi (now deposed).

Gehad el-Haddad served for five years as a top official at the Clinton Foundation, a tax-exempt do-good foundation founded by former President Bill Clinton.

El-Haddad pushed the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamist agenda in the foreign press, where he was often quoted defending the Brotherhood’s crackdown on civil liberties in Egypt.

Gehad became the public face of the Islamist terrorist organization soon after leaving his post at the Clinton Foundation.

Much of Gehad's official work with the Muslim Brotherhood took place while he was still claiming to be employed by the Clinton Foundation. ////// Behold what 'smart power' hath wrought: Obama's careening and incomprehensible handling of the Syrian crisis.....doing a Costa Concordia with US ntl security and foreign policy. In short, Obama outed himself as naive, isolated....and outlandishly stupid. Remember, The goal of smart power is to accomplish an "important foreign political objective without firing a shot."

Not to forget then-Secy of State Hillary's part in the debacle.

The Democrats' 'Smart Power' Lies in Ruins
National Review | Sept 3, 2013 | Jim Geraghty / FR Posted by kristinn

Democrats Suddenly Realize What They Miscalculated About the World: Everything

As we await Congress’ decision on authorizing the use of U.S. military force in Syria, Democrats are suddenly realizing that their foreign policy brain-trust completely misjudged the world.

Being nicer to countries like Russia will not make them nicer to you. The United Nations is not an effective tool for resolving crises. Some foreign leaders are beyond persuasion and diplomacy. There is no “international community” ready to work together to solve problems, and there probably never will be.

You can pin this on Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Susan Rice, but most of all, the buck stops with the president. Those of us who scoffed a bit at a state senator ascending to the presidency within four years on a wave of media hype and adoration are not quite so shocked by this current mess.

We never bought into this notion that getting greater cooperation from our allies, and less hostility from our enemies, was just a matter of giving this crew the wheel and letting them practice, as Hillary Clinton arrogantly declared it, “smart power” (and fronted Time magazine cover).

(These people can’t even label a foreign policy approach without reminding us of how highly they think of themselves.)

They looked out at the world at the end of the Bush years, and didn’t see tough decisions, unsolvable problems, unstable institutions, restless populations, technology enabling the impulse to destabilize existing institutions, evil men hungry for more power, and difficult trade-offs.

No, our problems and challengers were just a matter of the previous hands running U.S. foreign policy not being smart enough. (Excerpt) Read more at nationalreview.com ...

Perhaps there would be interest on a documentary that investigates why this Hillary biopic could not get off the ground?

“Some of them are probably ashamed of all the corruption and the charred, blood-soaked bodies.”

And then, they look at the Bank Account Balance, and remember all that money they have been able to pocket from the Treasury, and their conscience is soothed.

Among the big lies the Clintons’ brought to Washington was that they never cared about money. It was a constant refrain during the Whitewater investigations. In fact, I was visiting with a congressman that I knew well who was an Arkansas Democrat and he made the same claim to me. He said “All Bill cares about is P—sy and Pizza.”

Repeat after me:

Everything gets a victory lap and an end-zone dance, whether they win or not. Always "In yo face, CHUMP."

Fascinating that the Clintons don’t want this film made. But they’re all in for the film being made by nbc.
