    “The bigger the lie, the more likely the buy-in” -- that must be the theory underlying a plan relentlessly executed by Bill and Hillary Clinton to suck money from the public in support of a supposed “charity” currently known as “Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.” Unlike the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation that was originally funded primarily by the Gates family, the Clinton Foundation was meant to take money from the general public, and from governments. So, affairs of the Clinton Foundation were never supposed to be directed by the Clinton family. But public records apparently prove that strict...

    The Clinton Foundation will continue to accept donations from foreign countries—but not from Saudi Arabia, donations from which have set off an embarrassing protest movement against newly-declared Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton. Clinton resigned from the Foundation’s Board of Directors last week as protests mounted in the media and on the campaign trail over the family foundation’s acceptance of donations from Saudi Arabia, which denies women many of the rights Clinton and the foundation claim to stand for. …

    Chelsea Clinton has reaped $9 million in compensation since 2011 for serving on the board of an internet investment company, according to Barron’s, the financial publication. Barron’s reported Sunday that Clinton has profited handsomely as a board member for IAC/InterActiveCorp, a media and internet investment company that has an ownership stake in 150 well-known brands, such as Vimeo, Tinder, Angie’s List and Home Advisor. Clinton, the only child of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has served on IAC’s board since 2011 and receives an annual $50,000 retainer and $250,000 worth of restricted IAC stock...

    Meghan Markle is using those royal connections she married into, now to the hilt, for politics. Far from being the aloof royal family member she said she'd be when she married Prince Harry last year, she's diving in. According to the Daily Mail: On Tuesday Meghan secretly invited former First Lady Hillary Clinton to visit her at Frogmore Cottage, her Windsor home, the Mail can reveal. According to sources, the two women hugged during what was described as something of a 'fan girl' meeting. Prince Harry and six-month-old Archie were there and Mrs Clinton, 72, even got to have a...

    Former Rep. Kweisi Mfume said Wednesday he would be a "champion" for the district he once represented if elected to represent it again. Mfume, the former 7th District congressman, is running to succeed the man who succeeded him, Elijah Cummings. He spoke Wednesday to C4. Mfume, who left office to lead the NAACP out of a path to financial ruin, touted his credentials as "somebody at the very least who is proven, tested, trusted and most of all ready to go to work on day one." Mfume talked about his beliefs on health care, violent crime, affordable college and spurring...

    Former President Barack Obama had dinner with actor Robert De Niro, one of Hollywood’s most outspoken Trump critics, in New York City on Monday evening, according to a report. The Daily Mail says Obama, wearing a black suit with dark sunglasses, was seen entering the Greenwich hotel ahead of his dinner with De Niro. The pair is said to have dined at Yves Restaurant in Tribeca. Robert De Niro has longed supported Obama, having campaigned for him in 2008. As the Daily Mail notes, the dinner comes after Barack and Michelle Obama’s production company, Higher Ground, signed a whopping $90...

    On Wednesday, The Intercept published a lengthy and detailed exposé on how Joe Biden's family has financially benefited from his career in politics. While Democrats pursue impeachment of Trump for defeating Hillary in 2016, the Democrats are ignoring a huge problem: when Hunter Biden’s career is scrutinized, it clearly shows "that he, along with Joe Biden’s brother James, has been trading on their family name for decades, cashing in on the implication — and sometimes the explicit argument — that giving money to a member of Joe Biden’s family wins the favor of Joe Biden." In 1973, one year after...

    Barack and Michelle Obama may soon become Kennedy adjacent because we've learned they're in escrow for a remarkable, mega-expensive, Martha's Vineyard estate. Multiple island sources tell us the Obamas are in escrow for the estate owned by Boston Celtics owner, Wyc Grousbeck. The former Prez and First Lady have been renting the house this summer and loved it so much, we've learned they made an offer. The property is listed at $14,850,000. Our sources say they're paying less, but we don't know how much. The estate -- incredible. It's 29 beachfront acres. The main residence is just shy of 6,900...

    New York Post ^ | August 16, 2019 | 10:34pm | Updated | Carleton English and Emmett Berg
    Buddy Fletcher is so broke he can’t afford his divorce from Ellen Pao, The Post has learned. The former high-flying hedge fund manager — who once rubbed elbows with Lauren Bacall and Roberta Flack — has no lawyer and is representing himself in a divorce from Pao, the former interim CEO of Reddit. He claims in court papers that the divorce, which is ongoing, left him “homeless” at one point, including a period of living in his car. The couple — known as much for Pao’s Silicon Valley gender discrimination claims as Fletcher’s financial downfall — have been slowly working...

    BALTIMORE, MD — When a man broke into the building in the middle of the night where U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings and his wife live, the couple did not call 911 right away. After the intruder got in, they took action. Hours later, the congressman's wife, Maya Rockeymoore, contacted authorities. Two exterior doors lead to the residential part of the apartment building where the couple lives on the first and second floor in the 2000 block of Madison Avenue, according to the police report. Around 3:40 a.m. on Saturday, July 27, they were alerted by a cell phone application connected...

    Funny things always happen to Bill and Hillary Clinton, friends have this nasty habit of turning up dead. We all gotta go sometime, but Clinton’s buddies seem to go under weird circumstances (and many by suicide). My friend Tami Jackson has compiled a list and description of 47 Clinton friends whose deaths seemed a bit odd. We ran part one on Friday and part two yesterday, today we present the third part of the Clinton body count. While all these elite wonks and writers scurry to anoint Hill and pen the fait accompli, I would like to continue my quest...

    Since Jeffrey Epstein’s latest arrest on sex trafficking charges, a who’s who of the rich and powerful - notably Donald Trump, Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton - have rushed to downplay their associations with the financier who is accused of abusing underaged girls. Now Chelsea Clinton has joined her ex-president father on this who’s who list. Her representative issued a statement to Politico over the weekend denying reports that the former First Daughter was close friends with Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s ex-girlfriend and the alleged “madam” who has been accused of helping him procure underaged girls for sex. **SNIP** Politico said...

    FULL TITLE: Michelle Obama Claims People Dismiss Presidency After Barack: ‘If a Black Guy Can Do It, Anybody Can’ In a Saturday interview, former first lady Michelle Obama insisted that Americans now dismiss the U.S. presidency because a black man was recently in the office. Speaking to TV host Gayle King during the 2019 Essence Festival at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Obama exclaimed that husband Barack made the presidency “look too easy,” Fox News reported. “I guess it’s kind of like if the black guy can do it, anybody can do it — and that’s not true. It’s a hard job,”...

    A watchdog group filed a complaint Tuesday with Maryland Democratic Attorney General Brian Frosh to investigate whether the wife of House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings used her charity for her personal benefit. The complaint, filed by the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), is the second action filed against Maya Rockeymoore Cummings’s Maryland-based charity, the Center for Global Policy Solutions (CGPC), by watchdog groups since May. Rockeymoore Cummings is the principal officer and sole staffer of her charity, which between 2013 and 2015 paid $250,000 in “management fees” to Global Policy Solutions LLC, a for-profit venture in which she...

    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Three officials with Puerto Rico’s Senate were arrested by FBI agents Thursday and later charged by the U.S. territory’s federal prosecutor with alleged corruption for a case involving a scheme to defraud the legislature using “ghost employees.” Federal prosecutor Rosa Emilia Rodríguez said 18 charges were brought against Ángel Figueroa Cruz, director of the Senate Office of Government Affair; Isoel Sánchez Santiago, an assistant to the Senate president; and Chrystal Robles Báez, a contractor to the body. “This kind of practice is not going to be tolerated where federal funds are involved,” Rodríguez told...

    Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings’ wife is breaking the law by not revealing financial disclosures about her nonprofit, an uninvolved legal expert told The Daily Caller News Foundation. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings runs a nonprofit called the Center for Global Policy Solutions that is closely intertwined with a for-profit consulting firm, Global Policy Solutions LLC. The nonprofit has received millions of dollars from groups with interests before the congressman’s committee, potentially buying them favorable treatment, according to a complaint filed with the IRS by the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC). At least three different groups have requested the forms, and...

    House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings is fighting back against allegations that his wife’s nonprofit organization violated its tax-exempt status and posed a potential conflict-of-interest with the work of his congressional panel. Cummings, D-Md., blasted a complaint to the Internal Revenue Service against his wife, Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, who sits as chair of the Maryland Democratic Party and runs a nonprofit group and a for-profit consulting firm, as “baseless,” and partisan. “These baseless claims come from a group funded by right-wing mega-donors known for their political hit jobs,” Cummings said in a statement to Fox News. “I am confident that...

    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi’s husband bought up to a quarter million dollars of stock in SunEdison, a now financially troubled green energy company just weeks before it announced a major 2014 acquisition that sent its stock price soaring. SunE's 2014 purchase of wind energy company First Wind “further bolstered the reputation of the company,” wrote one market-watcher at the time. “Perhaps unsurprisingly, SunEdison’s stock soared 29% on news of this acquisition alone.”
