    Proverbs 15:27 The greedy bring ruin to their households, but the one who hates bribes will live. The Clinton Family Laundry is one of the largest graft and corruption machines ever devised. This as everyone knows is a way for lobbyists around the world to bribe the United States by contributing a few million to receive multiple billions. It is the ultimate slot machine where you can put millions in and take out billions. If she returns to the White House she would go from making hundreds of millions to making hundreds of billions in graft and corruption by taking...

    Grace to You.org ^ | 1997 | John MacArthur, Grace Community Church
    “‘Do not lay up for yourselves treasures upon earth’” (Matthew 6:19). Wealth comes from God, and we are to manage it wisely for Him. John Wesley was a godly man who devoted his life to serving the Lord. What is not as well known perhaps is that he was rich, gaining most of his wealth from his published hymns and other works. At one point in his life he gave away 40,000 pounds sterling—a fortune in those days. When he died, his estate was worth only twenty-eight pounds, for he had given nearly everything to the Lord’s work. It is...

    While radical environmentalists jointly claim greenhouse gases and fossil fuels such as oil and coal are responsible for global warming and endangering the planet, there is strong disagreement among them about what energy sources are acceptable. Environmental activists and groups are divided on natural gas and nuclear power, and even differ in their approach towards fossil fuel companies, according to The New York Times. Politically, the left is divided too, as evidenced by the recent, narrow decision not to include a ban on “fracking” in the Democratic platform. The New York Times science writer John Schwartz reported in a July...

    Federal campaign finance records reveal that presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has been drawing a salary from campaign funds. To-date, the amounts paid have exceeded $250,000 since April of 2015. Campaign manager Robbie Mook defended the payments as "a bargain. Normally, Hillary would receive $250,000 for a single speech. That the campaign has gotten hundreds of speeches from the candidate for the price of one has to be the greatest return on contributors' investment ever seen from a candidate." "Campaigning is hard work," Mook continued. "She's put in more hours on it than she ever did as Secretary of State. Surely,...

    When Bernie Sanders hits rival Hillary Clinton for taking humongous speaking fees from big banks -- notably the $675,000 Goldman Sachs paid her for three speeches while she eyed the Oval Office -- he struck Clinton's Achilles heel. Both the former secretary of state and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have cashed in since they left the White House in 2000. The New York Times reported last year that the Clintons earned $139 million from 2007 to 2014. The Clintons' focus on accumulating wealth clouds their judgment. Start with a basic political fact: Many voters believe Wall Street got...

    Earlier this month I was reading an article from Ester Bloom at The Atlantic dealing with the burgeoning trend of crowdfunding which raises some perplexing questions. She starts out by noting that there’s been something of a cultural shift in America on the subject of money. There was a time when asking for money was a rather uncomfortable subject and people generally only fell back on that approach as a last resort. It was not that long ago that people were squeamish about asking each other for money. Bringing up the subject of personal finances at all used to be...

    “Workers of all lands unite,” reads the marble engraving atop Karl Marx’s grave in London. But if said workers were to congregate at the tomb of their advocate, they’d have to part with some of their capital: It costs about $6 to enter the portion of Highgate Cemetery where he lies. Some modern-day admirers of Marx who want to abolish private property are understandably upset that it’s not free to get in. “There are no depths of irony, or bad taste, to which capitalists won’t sink if they think they can make money out of it,” whined one 24-year-old Marxist...

And the last thing Americans need is another misguided leader with failed policies that discourage risk taking and innovation. Yet, after seeing Secretary Clinton’s proposal to address prescription drug costs, we should be deeply concerned about another national health care policy that could have disastrous effects. Clinton’s sweeping proposal combines a number of misguided policies that would undermine access and choice of medicines for patients. It would also destroy incentives to invest in new cures and life-saving treatments. A reckless plan of this magnitude...

Notable among the souls damned for their greed, Dante wrote, "were clergymen and popes and cardinals, within whom avarice works its excess."

It was Lord Acton, 19th century English Catholic historian and statesman whose quarrel with Anglican Archbishop Mandell Creighton prompted Acton’s famous axiom: “ Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Willie Sutton, 20th century legendary American bank robber whose appetite for vacuuming bank vaults, cashiers’ drawers, and jewelry cases, provoked lifelong unrepentant recidivism, when asked why he robbed banks, quipped: “ Because that’s where the money is.” With gymnastics perhaps unmatched by any political duo in U.S. history, Hillary Clinton,...

    GOP Briefing Room Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 25 April 2015 | John Semmens
    A new slew of allegations has emerged implying that the Clinton Foundation may have accepted bribes in exchange for Hillary to use her Secretary of State status to influence government policy. An example of possible influence peddling was her support for Russia's acquisition of a major stake in American uranium mining. "It looks like she violated the law, and the idea that she was going to use her own server and do official business on it goes against every transparency issue that the President likes to tout," House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) observed. "She should turn that server and all...

    The Clintons have always had an uneasy relationship with money. Bill never had any. And although Hillary had a comfortable upbringing, she didn't take the path to riches that her Yale Law degree might have provided, choosing instead to do public interest law right out of law school and marry a man with great political ambition. But, clearly, both Bill and Hillary wanted the good life -- and the money it takes to provide it. Nothing wrong with that, but the means by which they've enriched themselves have been unsavory at best. And all this makes suspicious the recent revelations...

    A controversial US pastor has defended trying to buy a $65million private jet with worshippers' donations and responded to critics by claiming 'the devil is trying to discredit' him. Reverend Creflo Dollar, 53, launched an appeal last month for 200,000 people to each donate '$300 or more' so that he could purchase a Gulfstream G650 to replace his current damaged aircraft.

    NBC Bay Area ^ | 4/23 | Tamara Palmer
    A study of the Bay Area region finds that San Francisco is becoming less diverse as surrounding counties increase multicultural populations. CityLab noted the study's starkest findings in the PolicyLink study: San Francisco is predicted to be the "whitest county" in the Bay Area by the year 2040. San Francisco is the only county in the Bay Area that is becoming less diverse; surrounding counties are becoming more diverse as soaring rent prices continue to drive people into other cities and towns. "It's startling because the city's diversity and identity as a progressive, inclusive city is seriously at-risk," Sarah Treuhaft,...

    Isaiah 23:17 [Full Chapter] At the end of seventy years, the LORD will deal with Tyre. She will return to her lucrative prostitution and will ply her trade with all the kingdoms on the face of the earth. One of my friends said he decided not to pay his taxes to the gummit this year. Rather, he gave it to a Mexican who was mowing a lawn and said he was just skipping the middle man. He asked, what is the point of contributing his hard earned money to a broken political system when it is going to end up...

    Proverbs 15:27 The greedy bring ruin to their households, but the one who hates bribes will live. So Harpy has her hand caught in the cookie jar. There is no definitive proof she was taking bribes using the Clinton Foundation, but it is pretty obvious she was. Just like we can assume every white cop is a racist wanting to arrest and shoot an innocent black child, we can assume Hillary was using her personal email server to hide the graft and corruption she was taking for her own personal gain. The one thing we do know about Hillary is...

    The Clinton Foundation will get new leadership in the form of longtime Clinton ally and former Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala as it continues to face ongoing questions about its foreign fundraising practices, former President Bill Clinton announced in Coral Gables, Florida on Friday. The news of Shalala’s new role comes as the foundation has caused all-but-certain 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton some political trouble in the final weeks before her expected campaign roll-out. Republicans have latched onto reports that the foundation resumed accepting money from foreign governments after Clinton left the State Department in 2013 — a...

    It has long been remarked that a certain Dogpatch air hangs over Bill and Hillary Clinton. They have, apparently, led separate lives for quite a few years, but one quality that they share is greed. Indeed, they seem unable to restrain that grasping instinct even when it undermines their presumably more important goals–as, for example, when Hillary extracts $300,000 from universities for 45 minutes of platitudes. Tomorrow’s Washington Post reports that while Hillary was Secretary of State, “[t]he Clinton Foundation accepted millions of dollars from seven foreign governments.” How many millions? Weirdly, the Post doesn’t say. It does tell us...

    Bill and Hillary are reportedly using tax advantaged strategies used by multimillionaires. Bill and Hillary Clinton are finding their way around an estate tax they have long supported, a cause they said would prevent the U.S. from being overrun by inherited wealth. The Clintons are employing a series of financial planning strategies that will help reduce the tax burden on future recipients, which can be as high as 40%, Bloomberg News reported.
