Hillary asked if she has 'millions,' responds, 'yes, yes, indeed!' (misleads about net worth)
WASHINGTON EXAMINER ^ | 7/29/14 | PAUL BEDARD

Posted on 07/29/2014 10:20:04 AM PDT by Liz

Hillary regrets saying she was 'dead broke'; now says she feels blessed by success. Democrat presidential candidate wannabe Hillary Clinton stumbled at the opening of her recent disastrous book tour by saying she and her husband Bill Clinton were “dead broke” upon leaving the White House in 2000. She now refuses to put an exact number on her worth and fudged about her wealth that has been pegged at about $80 Million...

The Clintons are relying heavily on "white privilege" to get back into office. The Clintons' have benefitted from, and are climbing back into office, using privileges far beyond those of the "community of color" to whom they plan to appeal.

"White privilege" denotes the array of advantages the Clintons have cultivated over years in public office. The gold-plated, endless perks of "white privilege" include:

<><> their personal massive wealth in the $2 billion range....

<><> ownership of multiple homes in posh enclaves....

<><> the chain of high public offices they've held....

<><> privileged friends in high places....

<><> global connections....

<><> constant affirmations of their own worth....

<><> greater social status...

<><> the expansive freedoms wealth and connections provide...

<><> unlimited access to the press to speak freely.....

<><> their memoirs made millions....

<><> Dec 2000 book deal $8 million; 2014 book deal $14 mill....

<><> three tax-exempt Clinton family foundations worth hundreds of millions....

<><> Clinton foundation "endowment" skyrockets to $200 million overnight....

<><> Hillary's $200,000 speeches.......

<><> Bill's tax-paid cushy pensions/benefits....

<><> tax-paid Clinton Library (Hollywood honey Sultan of Brunei a donor).....

<><> Chelsea's paid-for $10 million uber-condo.

2016 Hillary was relying on the "income equality" bugaboo to hoist herself into office......as good a definition of "white privilege" as any.

The Clintons strategy is to label others as "different" while presenting themselves as "normal." The Clinton "normal" is couple billion dollars laying around without having a real job.

The Never-Enough Clintons had planned to run a populist campaign, critical of the Wall Street types”....that's after the world was informed that speaker Hillary was pocketing $200,000 a throw from Goldman Sachs.....and other corporate giants.

Even though they were "dead broke" (snix), the greedy, mega-wealthy Clintons have money pouring in from everywhere without lifting a finger...said to be worth couple BILLION dollars.

Never-enough Bill/Hillary look to cash in w/ another go-round in the White House. The Clintons owe bigtime......money is pouring into their three tax-exempt foundations......and these donors expect payback.

Business people get rich by providing value in exchange for the wealth that they earn.

In the business world, it’s called a “value proposition.” If a business does not have a definable value proposition, it perishes in the marketplace, because in a free market, consumers and other businesses won’t spend their hard-earned money without getting some definable value in exchange.

So how did the Clintons make their millions? What is their value proposition?

Hillary calculatedly told ABC-News' Diane Sawyer about how tough life was: "We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but ($6 million) in debt”. “We had no money when we got there, and, we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea’s education. You know, it was not easy."

The greedy, mega-wealthy Clintons have money pouring in from everywhere without lifting a finger...said to be worth couple BILLION dollars. Never-enough Hillary looked to make a couple more million pumping her book.

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

Hillary connivingly planned to campaign on "income inequality" .......running as a phony populist. Campaign strategists warned Hillary her "tone" is important.....(so she can better dupe the voters).

THANK YOU KELLY FILE Megyn ran a news clip of Hilly sing-songing "the cancer of inequality" in a contrived sap-happy, chirpy voice, wearing a h-u-g-e phony grin.

Reminded me of the classic Willam Castle horror movie, "Mr Sardonicus," (whose face becomes frozen in a horrifying grin while robbing the coffin of his father's grave).

Hillary wears her perpetual 2016 game face.

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

Even more delicious is that Hillary's disastrous book roll-out was managed by Dudester Tommy Vietor---Obama's van-driver with ntl security clearance who Obama appointed his NSA advisor; Vietor sat in on WH Situation Room crisis meetings.

Feel safer, now, America?

DUDESTER VIETOR ACTUALLY DOES MESSAGING FOR A LIVING
He offered up a truly laughable assesment of Hillary's hellish book tour. “The Secretary enjoyed spending this week talking about 'Hard Choices' and working with President Obama to restore America’s leadership in the world,” he said in an email. “She’ll continue to be relaxed, candid and direct.”

Vietor also wrote the Susan Rice Benghazi talking points to save Hillary's ***.

Vietor should audition for a SNL job--producing comical skits.

So how did the Clintons make their millions? What is their value proposition?

BACKSTORY Then-Pres Clinton inevitably pursued his own political advantage at the expense of American interests and national security. Here's just one of the endless examples.

The Clintons' greed and crass cupidity is well-documented---shows Clinton and the Democrats took illegal campaign money from groups and individuals tied directly to the Chinese People’s Republican Army. It is therefore not surprising that In January 1998 Clinton went against the advice of then-Secretary of State Warren Christopher and Pentagon experts by lifting long-standing restrictions against the export of American satellites to China for launch on Chinese rockets.

Not only did then-pres Clinton move control over such decisions from the more security-focused State Department to the Commerce Department, but he intervened in a Justice Department investigation of Loral Space & Communications, retroactively enabling Loral to sell critical missile technology to the Chinese.

Interestingly enough, Clinton’s decision was made at the request of Loral CEO Bernard Schwartz, whose earlier $1.3 million campaign donation made him the single biggest contributor to the Democratic election effort.

The result? Democrats got money from satellite companies and from Chinese communists; China got supercomputors, advanced production equipment and missile technology; Loral got its satellites launched at bargain basement prices . . . and the transfer of sensitive missile technology gave China [for the first time] the capability of depositing bombs on American cities.

Incidentally, Loral ultimately failed to benefit from this permanent injury to America’s security interests: in July 2003, the company filed for bankruptcy protection, and in order to raise cash was forced to sell its most profitable business – a fleet of communications satellites orbiting over North America.

Gaming the system is the name of the Clinton game---the conniving Clintons will say and do anything to get their filthy hands on our tax dollars.

BACKSTORY When Billy, the Boy From Hope, burst upon the political scene as a presidential candidate....he duped the voters and coached his Arkansas Mafia friends to say, “Money doesn’t mean anything to Bill Clinton"........

Now we hear he got a hundred million dollars while his wife controlled the State Dept checkbook......monies that were meant for Haiti (the place where the Clintons spent their honeymoon).

BETTER ADD THIS IN, TOO 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.

Becoming president has a pretty good monetary return. That poor boy from Hope, Ark, made over $200,000,000.00 (that we know of) as a “public servant.”

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

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.

SO?? Just a couple of examples of the best politicians money can buy. There was a time when the public’s best interest was served, but today its a case of how much can I pocket while I serve. The worst part is the majority of the voters who put these people in their positions are blind and are easily fooled by hype and myth. When will America wake up?

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:

<><> a NYT expose that the tax-exempt Clinton Global Initiative 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 Clintons doing their "Holy Family" act.

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."

NOTE The Clintons' shady foundation financing is unveiled in a recent NYT expose of Clinton corruption, greed, cronyism...with overtones of money laundering.

The Clintons bagged millions in kickbacks from the Red Chinese for Loral Space technology, paid for by American tax payers. There's the $350Million the Chinese government gave their "foundation" for "favors" Mr. Clinton performed for the Chinese (technology transfer), and you have quite a pile of illicit money.

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

SHOCKER--THE HARRY REID CONNECTION---There's also a Harry Reid connection to the tax-exempt "Clinton Global Initiative" one of the three Clinton foundations.

PUT ON YOUR TINFOIL HATS TO CONNECT THE DOTS:

(1) Harry Reid's son Rory is in business w/ the Chi/Coms on a multi-billion dollar solar energy project; Cliven Bundy and his land are standing in the way.

(2) Reports say Bill Clinton recently went to China to panhandle for his tax-exempt "Clinton Global Initiative" foundation.

(3) 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 a Brooklyn theatre's connection to "global initiatives?")

(4) A Nevada energy company also gave Reid's granddaughter's theatre group a grant.

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

"Money laundering" comes to mind. Could the Chinese be financing the Reid's solar project through donations to the Clinton Foundations....which is then laundered to Reid's granddaughter?

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

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 Sprat’s 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:
Caesar’s 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.

The worst part is that the “30 yr old kid”(actually 34 now) you refer to is without a doubt a child intellectually, emotionally and morally and will almost certainly never attain the level of adulthood that used to be normal for a 30 year old even if she lives another hundred years. That should make her a natural candidate for president in 2020 when she will be 40. Having spent her teen years in the White House as the first daughter she will be called by many the most experienced candidate available. Just what we need, the privileged, spoiled daughter of two of the most disgusting people who have ever lived on the North American continent. Apologies to Webb Hubbell.

Brunei contributed to "The Clinton Foundation" 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 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 ...

When Hillary said the Gitmo terrorists now in Qatar were not a threat to the US---she "forgot" to mention the Qatar donation to the Clinton foundation.

Bill recently opined that if he died, Hillary would get 2 million more votes in her widow’s weeds.

She is a nasty piece of work, but at least she’s not a foreigner, and is pragmatic enough to have some consideration of the middle class.

Hussein Obama has mined the future against his successor. He likes the job and wants to run again, I suspect. Whoever takes office will inherit a disasterous economy, hobbled defense and world-wide chaos.

The Clintons are actually going to use this strategy in the primaries.

Basically saying that a Dem win in Nov 2016 is inevitable (that's probably correct) and you Republicans should vote for Hillary in the primary or you'll end up with Liz Warren in Jan 2017.
