Hillary Clinton $225,000 speaker fee: Is that a lot for a potential president?
CSM ^ | 06/28/2014 | By Mark Sappenfield

Posted on 06/29/2014 7:25:35 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

A Hillary Clinton speech in Las Vegas will cost the University of Nevada $225,000. That fee leaves Mitt Romney in the dust, and as voters shift their views of the presumed presidential candidate, it has focused more attention on her finances.

There's nothing particularly unusual about Hillary Rodham Clinton's $225,000 fee for her upcoming speech at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. In March, the University of California at Los Angeles paid $300,000 for a similar event with Mrs. Clinton, ...

I don't click on websites that might suck brain cells out of my head.

Does the author ever get around to telling the reader how much the University of Nevada or UCLA paid Mitt Romney to speak?

I guess one could ask whether Hillary is so in demand that her speaking fees have been bid up to $200,000+ in the free market, or whether other factors might be at play; such as an expectation of future benefits should she hold some high office later.

I doubt her speaking engagements go to the highest bidder, so why would entities pay such fees?

You nailed it.

Lawyers Bill and Hillary have held no other jobs but “public service”-—they didn’t have a pot to *** in in Arkansas-—didn’t even own a home. But they are experts at gaming the “public service” system for themselves. The Clintons conniving has enriched them. They are now worth more than $200 million dollars.....and counting. How did they make the money? In several ways.

(1) Bill’s calculated moves w/ his presidential pen and official policies profited numerous cronies and entities.....who are now being hit up for donations to the three Clinton tax-exempt “foundations.....and to enrich Hillary.

(2) Bill’s pardon pen was useful in pardoning diverse voting blocs which got Hillary elected to the US Senate as a prelude to her presidential ambitions.

(3) The Clintons game the system 24/7....their only goal in politics is to control the money.

WASH/PO How the Clintons went from ‘dead broke’ to rich: Bill earned $104.9 million for speeches
By Philip Rucker, Tom Hamburger and Alexander Becker

EXCERPT--Bill Clinton has been paid $104.9 million for 542 speeches around the world between January 2001, when he left the White House, and January 2013, when Hillary stepped down as secretary of state, according to a Washington Post review of the family’s federal financial disclosures.

Although slightly more than half of his appearances were in the United States, the majority of his speaking income, $56.3 million, came from foreign speeches, many of them in China, Japan, Canada and the United Kingdom, the Post review found.

The financial industry has been Clinton’s most frequent sponsor. The Post review showed that Wall Street banks and other financial services firms have hired Clinton for at least 102 appearances and paid him a total of $19.6 million.

Since leaving the State Department, Hillary Clinton has followed her husband and a roster of recent presidents and secretaries of state in this profitable line of work, addressing dozens of industry groups, banks and other organizations for pay. Records of her earnings are not publicly available, but executives familiar with the engagements said her standard fee is $200,000 and up, and that she has been in higher demand than her husband. Some companies that have paid Bill Clinton for speeches have faced scrutiny from federal regulators.

Over seven frenetic days, Bill Clinton addressed corporate executives in Switzerland and Denmark, an investors’ group in Sweden and a cluster of business and political leaders in Austria. The former president wrapped up his European trip in the triumphant Spanish Hall at Prague Castle, where he shared his thoughts on energy to a Czech business summit.

His pay: $1.4 million.

That lucrative week in May 2012 offers a glimpse into the way Clinton has leveraged his global popularity into a personal fortune. Starting just two weeks after exiting the Oval Office, Clinton has delivered hundreds of paid speeches, lifting a family that was “dead broke,” as wife Hillary Rodham Clinton phrased it earlier this month, to a point of such extraordinary wealth that it is now seen as a potential political liability if she runs for president in 2016.--SNIP--- LONG READ---

This is how lefty institutions, essentially government entities, pay off their bosses and friends. What is a public university doing dropping that kind of money? Remember the Clinton’s are pure political grifters and this is how the get paid for favors and influence.

Hllary was such a brilliant commodities trader, one would think she’d have just stuck with that and become even richer much sooner. Or maybe all the easy money that has come their way was all for the same reasons.

And the financing of presidential libraries is another cesspool that needs to exposed to much more sunlight.

RE: Does the author ever get around to telling the reader how much the University of Nevada or UCLA paid Mitt Romney to speak?

Not sure if Romney actually spoke at UNLV. However, his TOTAL speaking fees for February 2010 to February 2011 was $374,327.62 according to this site:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/17/mitt-romney-not-much-definition-speaking-fees_n_1210522.html

Not sure how many speeches that is.

As a comparison, Newt Gingrich makes $60,000 per speech.

The speaker fees are a diversion to obscure the fact that the Clintons are embezzling money from their “tax-exempt” foundations.

IMO.

These outrageous fees are just a way to skirt the laws governing campaign finance and a way to buy political influence from well connected figures and/or in the event the speaker does get elected.

After all - it’s tax deductible so let the working class bitter clingers pay for it.

It is an investment in the possible future when she might be able to steer taxpayers’ money to those who “supported” her. The whole situation is very “Godfather-like”. Criminals all.

All this talk about how expensive college tuition is, but this university can spend $250,000 to bring some nasty old lush to come and gripe about things?

Upstairs maids aren't free... And a good chauffeur ain't cheap... And don't get me started on a personal chef and his assistants... Hillary needs every penny of the two hundred and twenty five thousand dollars for a 45 minute speech.

Every penny.

How dare these students question her Majesty - the liberal elite Queen? Her Majesty Hillary MUST HAVE the money to maintain her dignity. These damn students can have their tuition raised a little more to cover this minor expense... it's the least they can do..

Clearly, it’s past time for a cap on speaker fees.

(Insert argument for limits on CEO pay here, and replace “CEO” with “Speaker.”)

The focus on her finances started because she claimed she was so poor. Is she a moron or was she so confident Big Media would cover for her?

What does she even talk about?

I went to Rush Limbaugh’s appearance at the Lion King Theater in NYC. It was 3 hours of mentally stimulating entertainment and so worth the cost of the ticket.

HRC lies. We know she lies and she knows we know she lies. It’s boring.

If it’s more of the same as the Hillary Clinton interviews like on FOX or CNN, who is willing to pay her that kind of cash? Are they charging a fee for tickets to see her to recoup that kind of cash? What’s in it for the school to front her this kind of money?

“Clearly, it’s past time for a cap on speaker fees.”

Along with an increase in the minimum wage for speaker fees at universities, say, beginning at $150,000, just to make it fair.

Hillary’s ‘giving’ the money to the ‘Clinton’ foundation....after all. So she won’t be spending that money on upstairs maids... Isn’t that the foundation where first daughter (who doesn’t care about money) works for hundreds of thousands of dollars a year?

These college kids from University of Nevada at Las Vegas don’t have to worry - when they get out of school they can start at CNN for $600,000 a year... pay off those student loans in no time...

QATAR DONOR TO CLINTON FOUNDATION/LIBRARY: As Hollywood hotshots protest the Beverly Hills Hotel over its ownership by Brunei's sultan and his embrace of Sharia law, it turns out the Brunei government has financial connections to "The Clinton Foundation."

The tax-exempt, nonprofit Clinton foundation lists Brunei along with Kuwait, Oman and Qatar (new home of the Gitmo Five) 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 ...

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

W/ a straight face, Hillary told Greta the Gitmo Five are NOT a problem to the US.

cost the University of Nevada $225,000.

No, that needs to be corrected. The students and the state taxpayers funded the lying wench's appearance.......

With that being said, what can any person possibly say that would enhance my life that any sponsoring party would actually pay $225,000 for a speech?

This crap is nothing but either political payback or payoffs for future considerations........

Whatever the case may be, state funded universities should be forbidden from paying for any speakers ............

Rock stars get paid for their performances and the attendees pay for admittance.

That is not the case for the university funded, oops, taxpayer and student tuition funded, appearances where the attendees get in for free.

There is nothing anyone, not even Jesus Christ, could say in two hours that is worth $200,000 or the $300,000 she got back in March at the University of California in Los Angeles........

It's all a political payoff scam.......
