At shareholders meeting, Boeing CEO questioned on Clinton ties (politics and profiteering) ^ | 4/28/14 | Rosalind S. Helderman

EDITED Boeing's CEO faced pointed questions about its charitable donation to the Clinton Foundation in the same year that then-Secy of State Hillary Clinton advocated on its behalf on an official tax-financed trip to Russia.

David Almasi, shareholder and representative of the National Center for Public Policy Research think tank, asked the question, and gave an indication of the kinds of challenges that companies could face as Hillary weighs a run for president. Dozens of major corporations have made charitable donations to the Clinton Foundation in recent years.

Almasi called the Boeing donation a "clear conflict of interest" that seemed "reckless and unnecessary." (According to Almasi's notes, CEO McNearney called an implication that the donation might have been legally questionable "beyond the pale.")

Boeing contributed $900,000 to the Clinton family foundation (there are three) just months after Clinton had traveled to Russia, where she made what she called a "shameless pitch" for a state-owned Russian company to buy Boeing passenger jets. Boeing won the $3.7 billion Russian contract in June 2010.

Mmmmmm....Hillary's globe-trotting is getting interesting.

Hefty corporate donations to the Clintons' tax-exempt foundations are nice...... but exchanging valuable US ntl security info for campaign contributions......that could really add up.

And the airheaded State Dept sorority sister could not name even ONE of Hillary's accomplishments?

Boeing should be ashamed. Bubba, the Hillabeast, and Chelsea as a team couldn’t qualify to do the work of their lowest floor cleaner.

Boeing is for engineers. I wish they would disassociate themselves with unachieving low life grifters who never have and never will contribute anything meaningful to the country.

What Question?

It was pretty clear when Boeing moved HQ from Seattle to Chicago, they had caved to the mob.

They certainly didn’t move for the tax advantage.

It also had nothing to do with optimizing a maintenance center location.

Oh heck, let's give her a break (cackle)---Hillary was too busy cleaning out the State Dept bank accounts to do anything in the best interests of the United States.

THIS JUST IN News reports say the State Department announced it has "no idea" what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors..... a special “management alert” warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at State has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years....under Hillary's watch.

Now we know how Hillary always$ get$ tho$e wonderful poll number$----why $he's always at the top of the pre$idential pack (cackle).


And BTW, when Obobo and Hillary staged (gasp) "military" raids in Libya, they gained access to the National Bank of Libya. (No paper money there---just solid gold bars. Solid Gold. Not the Chinese tungsten filled bars that flooded the gold market).

It certainly appears that corporate America has turned radically to the left.

Boeing is now run by liberals and it showed in their management style.

A few years ago Boeing flew all the chief executives from around the world to hear some fat black racist “woman” tell them that they had to hire more blacks, not Hispanics or Asians, but blacks, or else it wasn’t “ethical”. They then edited the video to make it sound like an “Ethics Training” video and made all Boeing employees watch it. It was clearly a waste of millions of shareholders dollars and a racist video. Most of the people walked out on the video.

Its a known fact that the grasping, ambitious Clintons used the WH to game the system---to enrich their cronies AND themselves. Self-serving Clinton and his decrepit wife aren't through w/ their craven self-aggrandizement----they now want back into the WH.

The Clintons even have their very own Muslim terrorist to carry out presidential orders.

BACKSTORY Billy Boy Clinton was grinning like a simpering fool at the annual meeting of the tax-exempt "Clinton Global Initiative Foundation"....even Boobomba was there hugging Billy like they were old pals.....all in the wake of the bombshell news that:

<><> the tax-exempt Clinton Global Initiative Foundation uses shady financing;

<><> the tax-exempt Clinton Global Initiative had employed an active Muzzie terrorist named Gehad el-Haddad (The stupid Clintons did not know Gehad was Farsi for "jihad")

Gehad also knows how the Muslim Brotherhood launders money to finance terrorism, using "tax-exempt foundations."


THE CLINTON FOUNDATIONS / MUSLIM TERRORISM CONNECTION --- The recent story 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 Clintons doing their "Holy Family" act.

NOTE The Clintons' shady foundation financing is unveiled in a recent NYT expose of Clinton corruption, greed, entitlement, nepotism, cronyism.


DHS and the State Dept recently published new exemptions in the Federal Register to welcome more terrorists seeking "asylum" in the screwing around a ban in the Immigration and Nationality Act that currently excludes refugees and asylum seekers who had provided limited material support, no matter how minor, to terrorists.

“These exemptions cover five kinds of limited material support that have adversely and unfairly affected refugees and asylum seekers with no tangible connection to terrorism: material support that was insignificant in amount or provided incidentally in the course of everyday social, commercial, family or humanitarian interactions, or under significant pressure,” a DHS official explained.

Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson and Hillary's successor, John Kerry, signed the Obama exemptions.

NOTE: Claiming "asylum" triggers endless monthly SS checks.


Muslim money-laundering modalities finance global jihad---

(EXCERPT)---the American Freedom Law Center, has been engaged in a long and drawn out lawsuit againstHamas front group, CAIR. Hamas-CAIR has been running a global criminal money laundering operation out of Washington, DC.

The money laundering scheme was discovered in the course of legal discovery in unrelated federal litigation arising out of allegations by five of CAIR's former clients that CAIR defrauded them by failing to provide the legal services they had been promised.

THE MODUS OPERANDI To avoid reporting these millions of dollars from the dubious Islamist sources and to avoid registering as an agent for a foreign sovereign as required by federal law, CAIR created a separate company called CAIR- Foundation, Inc---an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

CAIR itself quit filing any federal tax returns from 2008-2010 and allowed the IRS to withdraw its status as a 501(c)(4), converting itself to a regular for-profit corporation. CAIR also stopped all of its operations and became simply a holding company, transferring, at least on the books, all of its employees and equipment to CAIR Foundation. --snip--
