Clinton Foundation Donors Got Weapons Deals From Hillary Clinton's State Department
International Business Times ^ | May 26, 2015 | By David Sirota

Even by the standards of arms deals between the United States and Saudi Arabia, this one was enormous. A consortium of American defense contractors led by Boeing would deliver $29 billion worth of advanced fighter jets to the United States' oil-rich ally in the Middle East.

Under Clinton's leadership, the State Department approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations whose governments have given money to the Clinton Foundation, according to an IBTimes analysis of State Department and foundation data. That figure -- derived from the three full fiscal years of Clinton’s term as Secretary of State (from October 2010 to September 2012) -- represented nearly double the value of American arms sales made to the those countries and approved by the State Department during the same period of President George W. Bush’s second term.

American defense contractors also donated to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state and in some cases made personal payments to Bill Clinton for speaking engagements. Such firms and their subsidiaries were listed as contractors in $163 billion worth of Pentagon-negotiated deals that were authorized by the Clinton State Department between 2009 and 2012.

Does not matter. Nothing the Clintons do matters. No one will not vote for her because of this who was already going to vote for her. Same as with Obama. No one cares. She will be the dem nominee and has a good chance at getting elected if the republicans don’t provide a very good alternative.

Yeah, and so. It’s not like anything will be done. Rules only apply to the little people.

Her running is going to end like last time with her stepping down so their true darling can shine.

Hillary should teach a college course on crony capitalism and corruption. Few, if any, can match her credentials.

Guess she was doing more than boozing it up all that time.

WASHINGTON EXAMINER--Boeing reportedly wrote a check for $900,000 to the Clinton Foundation just after the State Department intervened in a multi-billion dollar deal between the Russian government and the aerospace company.

While Boeing lobbied the agency during that time, it had given a total of between $1 million and $5 million to the foundation.

"Boeing's contributions to the Clinton Foundation were primarily for school rebuilding programs in Haiti following the devastating earthquake in that country," said Boeing spokesman Tim Neale. Neale noted some of the company's contributions went through the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund, a charitable effort that he said "transcended politics and recognized the work that needed to be done."

NOTE--At last report, Boeing was refusing to handover its email exchanges w/ Hillary.


You can bet con artists Bill and Hillary are getting a big chunk of that Boeing arms deal. One clue as to where the shady money is secreted---check Bill's travel schedule.

CLINTON CASH AFFIRMS---Boeing Gave to Clinton
Causes After Hillary Steered Its Russian Contract

The Washngton Examiner ^ | MAY 5, 2015 | 7:04 AM | BY SARAH WESTWOOD / FR Posted by drewh

Boeing gave heavily to the Clinton Foundation after Hillary Clinton helped it secure a major deal with a Russian airline in 2009, author Pete Schweizer noted in his book, Clinton Cash.

The company was also involved in funding one of Clinton's pet projects at the State Department after the agency reportedly brushed aside ethical guidelines to secure a $2 million contribution.

Boeing remains a major partner of the Clinton Foundation, supporting Clinton Global Initiative projects and donating between $1 million and $5 million to the charity. The company also gave $2 million to support the State Department's efforts to host a pavilion at the 2010 World's Fair in China, an event that became highly politicized given the "pivot to Asia" policy Obama's State Department was to pursue. Schweizer notes a $900,000 donation from Boeing to the Clinton Foundation came on the heels of a multibillion dollar contract between the Russian government and the aerospace behemoth.

Clinton pushed for the $3.7 billion deal in Russia as part of a policy she had dubbed "economic statecraft" in which she "would use her diplomatic leverage to help American companies be more competitive overseas," Schweizer wrote. (Excerpt) Read more at ...

Isn’t it hilarious that the US has anti-bribery laws, which work to the disadvantage of American companies competing in overseas arenas where bribery is the norm? While, at the same time, contributions to a US domiciled “foundation” run by the Secretary of State and her ex-President husband accept “donations”—and it’s all legal?

....the Murky World of the Clintons' Big-Bucks Speeches...

Are we sure these "speeches" are legit?

A Freeper posted that some execs at companies the Foundation listed as giving gargantuan Clinton Honorariums say they never heard of a Cinton giving a speech. And none of the pricey speeches are found on web sites (as is the usual practice).

The just-revealed honorarium payouts include pricey speeches Bill Clinton gave to:

<><> an Irish scholarship fund,

<><> a Korean conglomerate, and,

<><> a Nigerian newspaper company...

..........each of these entities paid Clinton more than half a million dollars........

The Washington Post reported that Hillary Clinton earned $11.7 million by delivering 51 speeches since January, 2014.....she was paid an astonishing $625,000 for two speeches — in one day!


AND THIS---Several state and federal agencies the Clintons listed as donors told news outlets they did not contribute to the Clinton Foundation.

<><> EPA is listed as a donor but said there's no record of donations to the Clinton Foundation.

<><> The “Office of Minority Health and Human Services,” is listed but it's not clear what this donation referred to, or even which federal or state office it came from.

<><> The Arkansas Dept of Human Services received a donor "gift receipt" but said they never expended tax dollars to the Foundation.

Shut it down; here's how:

(1) According to ABC's George Stephanopoulous, he was solicited (and/or donated) for donations to specific "charities"...AIDS and deforestation. If the Clinton Foundation received donations based on specific charitable work, then transferred the money elsewhere, the US Postal Service considers this mail fraud.

(2) At the lavish Morocco meeting last week, Bill Clinton was asked by a billionaire donor what Clinton was doing w/ donations. The donor referred to the blizzard of adverse publicity that monies sent to the Foundation were not used as intended. "What is this money for? What have you done with it?," he asked Clinton.

(3) "I just work here," Clinton responded. "I don't know." So if Foundation founder Bill Clinton did not know---and the Board did not know---who knew?

(4) The billionaire donor also told Clinton his daughter (a Foundation Board member) felt useless.....b/c apparently Board Members were not advised of some of Clinton's activities.

(5) If Foundation Board members were not advised of, and did not sign off on, expenditures of tax-exenpt Foundation donations, the Clintons have a legal problem that could involve violation of tax laws. Board members of Foundations are fiduciaries and are required to oversee the distribution of donations.

(6) L/E investigating the Jeffrey Epstein pedophile case found Clinton listed w/ 21 phone nos and email addresses. What for? L/E knows multiple phone nos and emails are connected to money laundering and tax fraud.


THE CLINTONs MO is down to a science.....and apparently bypasses Board members:

<><> (1) it mops up cash from wealthy foreigners,

<><> (2) bundles it within a larger charitable organization to hide the money’s original source, and,

<><> (3) funnels the cash from the so-called legitimate charity into the Clinton Foundation coffers.

<><> the money-laundering is an intense 24/7 operation.


Can all the listed donors who took a tax write-off come up w/ a Foundation "gift receipt."

How does Hillary control Republicans?

Remember the Clinton Administration’s Filegate scandal?
June 1996 - improper access in 1993-94 to FBI security-clearance files.

Craig Livingstone, director of WH Office of Personnel Security, got background reports concerning several hundred individuals,

Many of the files covered White House employees from previous Republican administrations, including top presidential advisors.

Liz, that is remarkable info.

It’s bad enough that the “speeches” were given as token compensation for the bribes. It’s even worse if they weren’t given!

I would bet the money is going to the Democrat Party, the Clinton’s, and a little bit to charity. Just enough to charity to make it appear a charitable foundation so they can keep the fraud in operation.

Hate to be so cynical, but I believe our republic is lost.

Icing on the cake will be the Supreme courts gay marriage decision come June.

Millions of illegals/legal foreigners have flooded this country with no allegiance what so ever. No concept of our constitution and bill of rights.

Politicians have destroyed our country in return for campaign cash from foreign/corporate special interest...all for power.

We cannot as a nation generate enough GDP to dig ourselves out of the most monumental fiscal suicide created by our so-called leaders.

Social, military, fiscal disintegration has left this nations security in dire straights. So sad.
