The Mercenary Heart of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s Charity

The latest story coming out of the Clinton Cash furor doesn’t involve the serious charges of a conflict of interest that have been revealed by follow-up investigations since the publication of Peter Schweizer’s book. Unlike those shocking instances in which donors to the Clinton Foundation sought and may well have received favors from the Hillary Clinton State Department, today’s New York Times feature about the ex-president’s appearance at a far smaller charity’s fundraising dinner doesn’t involve government action. But it does tell us not only about Bill Clinton’s mercenary approach to philanthropy but the way the former First Family’s slush fund disguised as a charity has profiteered at the expense of actual charities. There is no “smoking gun” of corruption here. But what it does provide us with is insight into their character and the raging hypocrisy at the core of everything they do.

    The Clinton motto? “The Corruption Starts Here.”

    “Charity begins at home.” And for the Clintons — corrupt, money-grubbing social-climbers — it ends there, too.

    Here’s an interesting concept, have a news blackout on the Clintons until AFTER she’s got the nomination.
    Of course, if she did, the MSM would keep it in place until after she won. But all other things being equal, which they aren’t, it could work.

    In my head, I constantly seem to write heavy metal rock choruses to interesting instrumental bits of songs I hear on the radio. A great guitar riff is all it takes to get me going. Anyhoo….recently, I have an earworm chorus running through my head which I would gladly give to any metal band willing to write and record an anti-Hillary song, and the lyrics go like this –

    You’re a liar Iiar
    Pants on fire
    Thieving liar
    Pile ’em higher
    Liar Liar
    Down the wire
    Nuthin’ but a thieving liar!

  • No Clinton, No Bush 2016!
