Posted on 05/23/2014 4:26:19 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
According to Mother Jones Andy Kroll, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has earned at least $5 million in speaking fees since leaving office in 2013, much of it coming from corporate clients that could complicate her presumptive 2016 presidential bid.
Clinton has made over 90 speeches in the past year-plus, addressing groups from colleges to trade associations to Goldman Sachs. While a good portion of the appearances were unpaid, when Clinton did command a price, it was usually around $200,000, with the price of travel on a private jet included.
Kroll points out that the paychecks will help bankroll Clinton personally for what promises to be a long and arduous campaign for president, but it also sets up openings for rivals, especially anybody who wants to attack her from the left.

She’s really not a good speaker. Those fees are political contributions. As such, it’s expected and understood they’ll be returned with interest when she gets back into power.
This is nothing compared to what former president Obama will command on the Race-Baiter Speaking Circuit.
Apparently there are no liberals willing to take her on.
“Public Servants” Bill and Hillary have made over $100,000,000.00 since Bill was president. I guess that “public service” pays pretty well.
thats too much money! shouldn’t Barry be taxing her at 95%? it will help pay for his jet fuel bills.
Absolutely pathetic. What could this ignorant and incompetent socialist have to say that would be worth hearing, let alone worth paying to hear it? Just another sign of how perverted and upside down our world is today.

Actually, they have made a lot more than 100 million dollars.
Their nte worth is in the several hundred million range and that is after taxes.
But how? how can she give speeches after she let four people die? do they muzzle her audiences of 150/200? make sure there are no mikes in the audience? or maybe she does her speeches in elementary schools?
“But how? how can she give speeches after she let four people die? do they muzzle her audiences of 150/200? make sure there are no mikes in the audience? or maybe she does her speeches in elementary schools?”
These speeches are not open to the public. People paid to be there. They get to meet and greet. She gives a prepared speech, probably as cover so they can maintain the pretense that it’s some civic function. But rest assured she knows who is there and what they want.
On a side note, the Democrats, with their competing constituencies, are running into the same problem the British did after WW1. The Brits had made conflicting promises to diametrically opposed groups, promising them the same things. (Jews vs. Arabs come to mind.) The Dems have promised coal states they’d relieve the carbon footprint legislation and they’ve promised greenie nuts they’d enhance the same laws. Now, neither of these groups will ever vote Republican, but they might sit out the next election like the Conservatives did with Comrade Romney and Comrade McCain.
How did they make the money? In several ways.
(1) Bill's calculated presidential moves profited numerous entities who were then hit up for donations to the three Clinton tax-exempt "foundations.
(2) Bill's pardon pen was useful in pardoning voting blocs which got Hillary elected to the US Senate as a prelude to her presidential ambitions.
(3) As ex-Secy of State, Hillary's current income alone is estimated at a hefty $600,000.
(4) As one example of the Clintons gaming the system: 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....under Hillary's watch.
you got to wonder how she will give speeches if she runs.what are they going to do,mandatory interviews of anyone who wants to buy a ticket?make sure they are all registered liberals?
Yes, she needs to be paying her “fair share” of all that wealth she obtained because of “white privilege”.
It takes a village [of entitlement leeches] to pay all the bills.
That’s $1.25 million per kill-not to bad for one days work.
It is astoundingly easy to steal govt money. One commonly-used, ridiculously easy MO: A crooked govt insider in collusion w/ govt factotums creates phony invoices (supposedly submitted by "contractors" for work that never existed).
The govt agency then writes the check to pay the bill out of govt funds set aside for contractual work. But the check is deposited in a secret LLC account, accessible only by the crooked insider.
Billions can be stolen in this easy-peasy, no-sweat manner....especially if you head the agency.

The press will treat her like she’s the Queen of Hearts and can scream, “Off with your heads!” I’d imagine they’ll handle larger audiences much like they do Obama’s. If somebody does get in who is going to shout an embarrassing question he’ll be tazered and arrested. The press will likely not report the incident and the larger public will never hear of it.

and I am pretty sure there are at least 10,000 unused manicans just sitting around in warehouses in most major cities.
I am sad to say my money had funded a couple of those events. She’s spoken at two trade conferences in my business, so my annual membership fees are helping to pay for it.
At one, people were ‘gaga’ over her, even some fairly right-leaning people. She’s going to be tough to beat because after this current circus side show, the serious talk by Hillary with her ‘experience’ as SOS and Senator is going to sway some people.
The tax-exempt, nonprofit Clinton foundation lists Brunei along with Kuwait, Oman and Qatar as donors that gave between $1 million and $5 million through last year.
The Clinton foundation itself confirmed the 2002 Brunei donation: "The Clinton Foundation's impact would not be possible without the generous support of our donors," the foundation's website reads. "Their contributions have made a difference in the lives of tens of millions across the world." Read more at foxnews.com ...
BACKSTORY Billy Boy Clinton was grinning like a simpering fool at the annual meeting of the tax-exempt "Clinton Global Initiative Foundation"....even Obama was there hugging Billy like they were old pals.....all in the wake of the bombshell news that:
<><> the NYT expose 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 (Gehad is 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.
There's also a Harry Reid connection to the "Clinton Global Initiative." The Clinton Global Initiative (NOT KNOWN for giving out grants)---gave Harry Reid's granddaughter a grant for a Brooklyn, NY theatre she runs (what is the theatre's connection to "global initiatives?"
REFERENCE----HARRY REID IS LIVID THAT HIS GRAND-DAUGHTER HAS BEEN OUTED AS A RECIPIENT OF LAUNDERED CAMPAIGN CASH---Reid lashed out at reporters, saying, My granddaughter has been the target of harassing phone calls, strangers tracking her down, knocking on her door and negative, unwanted attention on the Internet. This has gone too far and it needs to stop now, Reid said. I deeply regret any role I had in creating this situation but now, as a grandparent, I say enough is enough.
Besides the "jewelry company" financed by her grandfather, Ryan Elisabeth Reid runs the Sprat Theater Company, a small theater in Brooklyn, which is also coming under scrutiny. According to Sprats Theatre Company Web site, it has received grants/contributions from:
<><> the Clinton Global Initiative (connected to global terrorism via Muslim Brotherhood employee),
<><> two major Las Vegas foundations:
Caesars Foundation, and the NV Energy Foundation.
NOTE NV Energy Foundation---is a non-profit division of NV Energy (a public utility). The NV Energy utility is a subsidiary of MidAmerican Energy Holdings Company which took over in 2013....and is now owned by a Warren Buffet unit.
BTW, here's Harry w/ his grand-daughter....the one who got $31,000 in laundered campaign funds for her "jewelry company" and grants from Clinton and Nevada energy foundations.
Reid and granddaughter Ryan Elisabeth Reid.
Bitch gotta work....
How did they make the money? In several ways.
I don’t think there is one angle for squeezing, scamming , grifting government or political payola that the Clintons don’t take advantage of.
In fact, I think they have even invented quite a few new angles on government graft and corruption.
The Clintons are not universally loved in the Democrat world and by politicians around the world in general in spite of their graft and corruption, they are loved BECAUSE of it.
Nobody is better at spreading the money around than Clintons have been, maybe ever. Bill and Hillary are the best providers the Democrats have ever had.
In the selfish and greedy world of politics the Clintons are considered great humanitarians because they spread their wealth of payola generously, both far and wide.
Everyone who is anyone owes the Clintons big time. Many are also joined at the hip to the Clintons by virtue of being co conspirators with the Clintons so if the Clintons hang, so do they.
Now that Hillary is out of a seat of power, the Clintons firm grasp on power is fading and the only thing propping up the Clinton pay for play graft and corruption operation is the hope that her becoming President is “inevitable”
The Clintons generosity allowed them to engage in and get away with all manner of criminal and unethical behavior
This highlights Obama’s fatal flaw. He is greedy, petty and cheap and is the ultimate user. While he has enriched his cronies to an amount never before matched, he is insular and only enriches his small circle of cronies.
His generosity does not even extend to members of Congress and so he has few friends and his base of co conspirators who will hang with him is not deep enough to ensure the execution of a successful stone wall and obstruction operation and to ensure any potential snitches obey omertà to the bitter end.
In the end this will be Obama’s downfall.
What could this incompetent porker have to say to anyone that would be worth $200,000?
Inflated speaking fees to politicians or the politically connected are just a not-so-stealthy way of bypassing laws limiting financial contributions or as a pay off for services performed or promised.
Marxism pays very well for the Inner Circle.
Pray America wakes up
Could not agree more. Remember that last Tues, Chelsea's MIL went down to an ignominious defeat..... even with both Clintons' personal appearances, funders, ads and robo-calls.
Now my take is over-the-hill Hillary is tired and worn out---and very ill. She does not want the presidency as much as Bill does.
Bill's got unfinished monkey business WRT to his libido. But more pertinent is that Bill read Putin accumulated about $75 billion in office. Bill's $200-300 million makes him feel like a piker, so he wants back in to best Putin's stash.
What has she accomplish, other than Benghazi?
I’m all for her spending her remaining years getting as rich as she possibly can on speaking fees and staying the hell away from the White House.
That’s a very successful comedy monologue, I reckon.
There. I fixed it.
