    *snip* The little-known Haiti Development Fund, an LLC incorporated in Delaware in August 2010, was created by the Clinton Foundation with an initial endowment of $20 million from shady Canadian mining mogul Frank Giustra and Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim. The Fund was supposed to supply desperately needed seed money to Haitian entrepreneurs after an earthquake devastated the country in January 2010. *snip* “This cries out for an audit or an investigation,” said Ken Boehm, chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center a Virginia-based watchdog group. “Its director was in bankruptcy and there’s almost nothing in the public record showing...

    The push to raise Mexico’s low wages got some unusual champions Monday. The Mexican Employers’ Federation said the minimum wage should be raised 19 percent, to the equivalent of about $5 a day. And telecom magnate Carlos Slim, Mexico’s richest man, told a business conference that “what has to be done is to substantially increase people’s incomes.” He called for a larger, better-paid middle class to stimulate Mexico’s internal market. …

    Dan Gainor, vice president of Business and Culture at the Media Research Center, joined Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Monday to discuss press reaction to Anthony Scaramucci, the New York Times’ continued blaming of sexism for Hillary Clinton’s election loss, and other current media topics. Gainor said, “It’s hard to take the New York Times seriously. The only more shrill and ridiculous print outlet in the country anymore is the Washington Post.” Gainor continued, “Every week, you will look and see something crazy. Last week in the New York Times was one of their latest op-ed arguments...
  • Mainstream Media Propaganda, from Khalidi Tape to ‘Nut Job’

    Breitbart ^ | Joel B. Pollack
    The common element in nearly all the major New York Times and Washington Post stories about President Donald Trump this week is that they are based on source documents the outlets cannot authenticate, do not possess, admit are partial, and refuse to share. .. These four stories, taken together, are said by the mainstream media to build a powerful case that Trump committed obstruction of justice and may soon face impeachment. But every piece of evidence could be made up or distorted, and there would be no way to know. In the “nut job” case, the White House has not...

    Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim said a united country could help the government negotiate with President Donald Trump. Mexico needs to negotiate from a position of strength, Slim said in a Friday news conference. Slim, who gained a $50 billion fortune owning mobile network America Movil, argued the clash between Trump and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has brought Mexico together. Slim urged political parties in the country to unite behind Nieto. While he called Trump a great negotiator, Slim said Friday that Mexico should not be scared of him or assume things will go badly.

    Bill Clinton and Carlos Slim Isabel Vincent reports today in the New York Post that the Clinton Foundation set up a for-profit entity called the Haiti Development Fund that took in $20 million from “investors” Carlos Slim and Frank Giustra but that it is a mystery what happened to most of the money. The Fund was supposed to provide capital to Haitian entrepreneurs in the wake of the 2010 earthquake, but the Post could only find evidence of one project that received funding. The Fund was run by a Jean Marc Villain, who appears to be an American citizen...

    Even as the New York Times reports extensively and critically on the Clinton Foundation and its activities during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, as with other news outlets, multiple high-dollar donors to the foundation are associated with the paper, including the Times’ top shareholder, Carlos Slim. Slim, a Mexican telecom tycoon whose net worth of nearly $80 billion makes him the second richest man in the world, became the top shareholder of the New York Times earlier this year after he doubled his shares to take control of 16.8 percent of the company.

    The death certificate for the father of the controversial Mexican judge confirms that Curiel’s parents were not U.S. citizens when he was born. Death records from Indiana records confirm that Salvador Curiel died a Mexican citizen in 1964… not as the New York Times’s Alan Rappeport reported in an anti-Donald Trump article. But Rappeport claimed that the elder Curiel had died a U.S. citizen. He didn’t. Here’s what Rappeport wrote: Judge Curiel, 62, was born in East Chicago, Ind., to parents who had emigrated from Mexico. Raul Curiel said their father, Salvador, arrived in Arizona as a laborer in the...

    Hillary Clinton’s family foundation quietly updated its list of donors last week, significantly reducing the amount that it says has been given by a Mexican telecom tycoon whose company was recently accused of deceptive U.S. advertising. The little-noticed update to the website of the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation added contributions made in the first half of this year. But it also dramatically reduced listed contributions from billionaire Carlos Slim. Prior to the update, Slim was listed as a $1 million to $5 million contributor. The updated version of the site says he has donated between $250,000 and $500,000....

    Jeb Bush says he released 33 years of tax returns this week because he wants to be the most transparent candidate to run for president in 2016. But if that’s really the case, why is he continuing to obfuscate some of his most lucrative and potentially controversial business dealings he had before announcing his candidacy, like his work as an “adviser” for investment bank Lehman Brothers? So, if Jeb won’t tell you what Jeb exactly did while working on Wall Street, in the interests of transparency and disclosure, I will try. Not much is known about what Bush actually did...

    n the summer of 2008, as the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression was unfolding, Jeb Bush, Florida’s former governor and brother of then President George W. Bush, traveled to Mexico to ask Mexican telecom mogul Carlos Slim Helú to rescue Lehman Brothers, The New York Times reported. In a front page article on Monday, The Times revealed that within a year of ending his term as Florida’s governor, Bush had signed on as consultant to Lehman Brothers, where he was enlisted to reach out to Carlos Slim in a plan code-named Project Verde (Green Project). Slim, says the...

    The GOP’s smear campaign, working overtime to mock, and discredit Donald Trump has has backfired so bad that Trump is now #1. Americans actually are beginning to see that Trump will fight for the American people. The Telegraph had this to say regarding Trump and some of the GOP’s fear and smear: For Donald Trump the entrepreneur, it was a damaging week. Two major television networks severed ties, Macy’s dropped his clothing line and Carlos Slim, the even richer Mexican tycoon, ended a joint venture with him. But for Donald Trump the inveterate showman and Republican challenger for president, the...

    The richest businessman in Mexico, Carlos Slim, has cut ties with Donald Trump after the latter offended Mexicans during his speech announcing his run for the presidency of the United States. The magnates were going to launch a television mega project with Larry King, named Ora TV, which would be a producing company financed by America Movil. The partnership is over as of June 29 after Trump carried on offending the neighboring country. Slim’s spokesperson, and son-in-law, Arturo Elias, stated: “Working with someone that narrow-minded was not going to work out.” He added that the comments were racist, especially when...
