The Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation accepted foreign donations while Hillary held the job of secretary of state. Between 2009 and 2012, the Clinton Foundation raised over $500 million dollars according to a review of IRS documents by The Federalist (2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008). A measly 15 percent of that, or $75 million, went towards programmatic grants. More than $25 million went to fund travel expenses. Nearly $110 million went toward employee salaries and benefits. And a whopping $290 million during that period — nearly 60 percent of all money raised — was classified merely as “other expenses.” Official IRS forms do not list cigar or dry-cleaning expenses as a specific line item. The Clinton Foundation may well be saving lives, but it seems odd that the costs of so many life-saving activities would be classified by the organization itself as just random, miscellaneous expenses. Does all that money put the Clintons in the dastardly 1%? Now, I’d like a few names of the people whose lives were saved via the Clinton Foundation, but I won’t hold my breath. I have the tendency to think many more people have made an early exit from the land of the living being associated with Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Anyway, I used a quote made by George Washington during his Farewell Address in reply to a comment on another blog. I think George Washington had some very sound advice. Here is what he had to say regarding the influence of foreign nations …
As avenues to foreign influence in innumerable ways, such attachments are particularly alarming to the truly enlightened and independent patriot. How many opportunities do they afford to tamper with domestic factions, to practice the arts of seduction, to mislead public opinion, to influence or awe the public councils. Such an attachment of a small or weak towards a great and powerful nation dooms the former to be the satellite of the latter.
Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government. But that jealousy to be useful must be impartial; else it becomes the instrument of the very influence to be avoided, instead of a defense against it. Excessive partiality for one foreign nation and excessive dislike of another cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts of influence on the other. Real patriots who may resist the intrigues of the favorite are liable to become suspected and odious, while its tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people, to surrender their interests.
The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible. So far as we have already formed engagements, let them be fulfilled with perfect good faith. Here let us stop. Europe has a set of primary interests which to us have none; or a very remote relation. Hence she must be engaged in frequent controversies, the causes of which are essentially foreign to our concerns. Hence, therefore, it must be unwise in us to implicate ourselves by artificial ties in the ordinary vicissitudes of her politics, or the ordinary combinations and collisions of her friendships or enmities.
It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world; so far, I mean, as we are now at liberty to do it; for let me not be understood as capable of patronizing infidelity to existing engagements. I hold the maxim no less applicable to public than to private affairs, that honesty is always the best policy. I repeat it, therefore, let those engagements be observed in their genuine sense. But, in my opinion, it is unnecessary and would be unwise to extend them.
Can you imagine, seeing the blatant conflict of interest Mrs. Clinton was engaged in, receiving multi-millions of dollars for the Clinton Foundation while being a Senator and the Secretary of State, what it will be like if she’s elected to be president? The United States, what’s left of it after Obama is done will literally be sold to the highest bidder.
I’m sure everyone remembers the WMDs which Saddam Hussein had, but didn’t have when Bush started the war with Iraq. “Bush lied!” “Bush got us into a war based on lies!” etc. etc. and those lies are still being spewed by many folks still today.
Well, it seems there were a substantial number of nasty WMDs found and even bought by the CIA but the Pentagon kept quite about it until last year.

WMDs Were Found in Iraq…CIA Bought 400 Rockets Filled With Sarin Gas
One of the biggest knocks against George W Bush is that he lied about WMDs in Iraq. Even today, liberals still spew those lies. Before the Iraq War started under Bush, trailer load after trailer load of what is suspected to have been WMDs were moved from Iraq to Syria. But even with all that movement, large amounts of weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq. The CIA was even able to buy 400 Borak rockets filled with pure Sarin gas. And on top of that, our troops found 5,000 WMDs that the Pentagon kept secret until last year.
The CIA is still not talking about buying WMDs in Iraq in 2005 and 2006. They do acknowledge the number and the fact that the gas was extremely active, even though it had some age on it. They refuse to discuss specifics.
Last year, The New York Times did an investigative piece on WMDs found by our soldiers. Here are parts of a story I did on the subject at the time:The New York Times has run an investigation into the large cache of WMDs found in Iraq during the war. The Times has documented at least 5,000 weapons of mass destruction that were found and subsequently covered up by the Pentagon. In the Times article written by C.J. Shivers describes the first time U.S. troops discovered such weapons:
Let me tell you friends, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to the joint session of the Congress (minus the racist, communist, terror supporting freaks) was everything that Barack Obama is not. He was honest, genuine, and unapologetic in his reasoning. This is a man who is committed to protecting his nation from a threat that has repeatedly voiced the destruction of Israel. And do you know … that has repeatedly voiced “Death to America” and has the blood of hundreds, if not thousands of Americans on its hands. Yet we have a limp-wrist Muslim sympathizer acting as president of the United States who, if anyone has been paying even the least cursory attention to has been enabling and supporting the enemies of America and Israel. I have to say, I give Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu credit for kissing Obama’s ass in the kind things he said about him. I realize he had to do that because he knew what was coming from the major media and the freak Democrats … at least to soften the blow. But these sick ass, genuine racist, Israel hating sons of bitches came at him any way. Talk about class! Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu embodies it far above anything Barack Obama and company can even imagine.
Nancy Pelosi, the lunatic from San Francisco had this to say … “I was near tears throughout the prime minister’s speech — saddened by the insult to the intelligence of the United States, the condescension toward our knowledge of the threat posed by Iran and our broader commitment to preventing nuclear proliferation.”
Well my dear Nancy, if our knowledge of the threat posed by Iran is so great, why are we giving them a pathway to a nuclear weapon?
And then there is this …
… Netanyahu standing at the podium where the president delivers the State of the Union speech, framed by two Republicans seated behind him — Boehner and Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, the president pro tempore of the Senate.
By custom, the vice president sits with the speaker, but Vice President Joe Biden was out of town and didn’t attend. Hatch is next in line.
“It was putting Netanyahu on an equal level with the president of the United States,” said Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn. “And that was wrong.”
Uh … hey asshole! The president of the United States was probably smoking crack and didn’t show up. And the dick-weed vice president, and the secretary of state. Personally, I’m glad they weren’t there, they sicken me. I swear to Gawd, I only wish we had a leader who cared about the United States like Benjamin Netanyahu cares for Israel.
I sit here and think, Barack Hussein Obama, tries to persuade us that being kind and showing intelligence to tyrants and terrorists will persuade them from committing atrocities and might abandon the desire to destroy America and Israel. Two things, either Barack Hussein Obama is on the side of the terrorists or he is a freaking lunatic. You cannot reason with terrorists. And I think anyone reading this realizes that. I mean come on folks, does anyone think for a second that if ISIS/ISIL takes you captive, and you smile real big that they won’t cut your head off?
I have immense respect for Mr. Netanyahu. He genuinely cares for the safety and security of Israel. Barack Obama caring for the safety and security of America … someone tell me how he has demonstrated that.
And then we got this from the Democrats … “What I heard today felt to me like an effort to stampede the United States into war once again,” said Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill.
This dick-weed didn’t even attend the speech. He must have missed the part where Netanyahu said that if Israel has to, it will go it alone to keep Iran from attaining a nuclear bomb.
And this is the best … Rep. John Yarmuth, D-Ky., said the speech was “straight out of the Dick Cheney playbook — fearmongering at its worst.”
Let’s see … “Fear-mongering…” Uh … when you have someone who says … For those who believe that Iran threatens the Jewish state, but not the Jewish people, listen to Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, Iran’s chief terrorist proxy. He said: If all the Jews gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of chasing them down around the world.
Mr. Netanyahu also said … I’m standing here in Washington, D.C. and the difference is so stark. America’s founding document promises life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Iran’s founding document pledges death, tyranny, and the pursuit of jihad. And … Iran’s regime is as radical as ever, its cries of “Death to America,” that same America that it calls the “Great Satan,” as loud as ever.
Men, if someone threatens your family, do take it lightly? Women, if someone threatens your children would you take it lightly and think you can be kind to the threat and that it might possibly go away? I trow not … at least not this Texan.
After watching Barack Obama for six and a half years does anyone think for a second that Benjamin Netanyahu should believe anything he says? I surely don’t, and I’m not the Prime Minister of a tiny nation literally surrounded by folks who vow to wipe them off the face of the earth.
The real reason why Obama and company didn’t want Mr. Netanyahu to speak today was because they knew he would the truth about Iran’s nuclear threat and the administration wants to cover up what could ultimately become a very bad deal.
Let’s check this out …
President Obama and the State Department are on the wrong side of history and public opinion when it comes to Iran and the threat it poses to global stability. BloombergView.com cites a Paragon Insights poll conducted for The Israel Project, a pro-Israel group, which found that 51 percent disapprove of Obama’s foreign policy, 41 percent approve. A wider margin — 43 percent to 25 percent — approve of Netanyahu speaking to Congress and 47 percent oppose the way the president has handled the Netanyahu address, Just 32 percent are in favor.
This piece summed it up well …
It isn’t just American public opinion that mostly opposes the president on Netanyahu and Iran. Pro-U.S. regimes in much of the Arab world understand the existential threat they face against a nuclear Iran. These nations — Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Oman, Qatar, Jordan and Egypt — are regarded as apostates by Iran’s theocratic rulers who view them as targets, not fellow Muslim neighbors, possibly because Iran has become the world’s number one exporter of terrorism, including to these countries.
These nations are not convinced by the president’s laughable contention that “the world is less violent than it has ever been.” Compared to what? There are none so blind as those who will not see. The Obama administration should open its eyes to a world that is aflame.
The do-do keeps getting deeper. I sit here shaking my head at how obvious Obama is at lying. It’s simply stunning to me that folks can actually believe this guy. Remember the “Not a smidgen of corruption” line when team Obama used the IRS to target conservative groups before the 2012 election? I know, I know it’s one of those “phony scandals” that conservatives just won’t let go. To refresh anyone’s memory who might need it, take about 2 minutes and watch this short video RIGHT HERE.
Okay, now that we have that established, we learn this …
Following the revelation that 32,000 emails have been recovered related to the IRS targeting of conservative political groups, a new report says the Department of Justice blocked Congressional efforts to force the IRS to search for Lois Lerner’s missing emails at off-site storage facilities.
As reported by The Daily Caller, the IRS never looked for back-up tapes of Lerner’s emails at an off-site storage facility where they were being housed:
Treasury deputy inspector general Timothy Camus told Congress that the IRS never asked IT professionals at the New Martinsville, West Virginia, storage site for the backup tapes. Camus only found the back-up tape for Lerner’s missing 2011 emails about two weeks ago.
The report also said the Obama administration not only knew that Lerner’s emails were kept at an off-site location, it blocked legal requests to search for them.
Cleta Mitchell, a lawyer representing True the Vote in its lawsuit against the IRS, told The Daily Caller:
“We said in court that there are off-site servers where all IRS emails are stored. The Department of Justice lawyers objected to that and said I shouldn’t even be allowed to mention these off-site servers without sworn affidavits.
They meant that I was trying to testify to the judge without bringing in witnesses with sworn affidavits.”
According to court transcripts, Mitchell knew exactly what she was talking about:
“I’m advised that the IRS maintains servers that are in different states in different locations and that IRS employees are advised that their emails are never lost.”
Investigators who recovered the 32,000 “lost” emails told a Congressional hearing last week that IRS employees never asked for tape back-ups of the emails, as directed by subpoena from several House committees.
This directly contradicts sworn testimony from IRS commissioner John Koskinen. Rep. John Mica (R-FL) put it bluntly:
“It looks like we’ve been lied to, or at least misled.”
At the Oklahoma State Capitol there was a Muslim “call to prayer” to honor “Muslim Day.” Well, a Christian woman didn’t dig it. She didn’t like the fact that basically the state capitol building was being turned into a mosque, so she disrupted the service by beginning to recite the Lord’s Prayer … watch what happens …
Hmmmm … I’m wondering where the atheists are; you know, the “separation of church and state” thing?
I will give Barack Obama credit for one thing; when he stated he was going to “fundamentally change the United States of America” he wasn’t lying. However, he does lie continually to achieve that goal.
We’ve watched as the government took control of the health care system. We’ve watched the ‘gaying’ of the military and at the same time the decimation of the military. We’ve seen tens of thousands of illegal aliens simply walk across the border and are now on the brink of amnesty leading to citizenship.

Breaking…WH Plans to Develop a “Country Within a Country” of 15 Million “New Americans”
Citizens Will Be Cast Into The Shadows
h/t Patrick Brown
The White House has plans to legalize 13 to 15 million illegal immigrants who will then establish a “country within a country.”
The following Mark Levin interview with Susan Payne is shocking but it also puts all the pieces into place.
Susan Payne is a contributor to WCBM, Baltimore and Co-Host of the Pat McDonough Radio Show,
Unbeknownst to the Obama officials, Ms. Payne was invited to listen in on conference calls at an immigration rally. Cecilia Munoz, director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, and 16 members of the White House cabinet were on the first call. White House officials were on all three calls. What Ms. Payne learned needs to be immediately shared with Congress and the public.
It should be noted that Ted Hayes, founder of America’s Black Shield, also listened in on these calls.
And now as Obama has issued an order to ban the 5.56 mm bullet, which is the most popular for the AR15, he’s actively going for the government take over of all personal retirement accounts. Let’s see, there’s over $17 trillion in personal retirement accounts which those in the government have had their eye on for years. Now Obama, under the guise of “protecting us” is figuring out a way to control those accounts, and naturally the money in them.
I found an interesting article which clearly reveals the contempt for America that Barack Obama has …

Obama was as clueless about 9/11 as he is about ISIS
That President Obama won’t call it Islamic terrorism; that he believes we shouldn’t be on a “high horse” because America and Christians have done bad things; that Muslims are victims of “bigotry and prejudice”; that his State Department says it’s the lack of jobs, not religion, that fuels ISIS, should come as no surprise.
After all, he said the same thing about 9/11.
In 2004, Obama released an update of his 1995 memoir, “Dreams from My Father,” with a little-noticed new preface about the attacks.
“On September 11, 2001,” Obama wrote, “…history returned with a vengeance; in fact, as Faulkner reminds us, the past is never dead and buried — it isn’t even past.”
“This collective history, this past, directly touches my own,” he added. “Not merely because, as a consequence of 9/11, my name is an irresistible target of mocking websites from overzealous Republican operatives. But also because the underlying struggle between worlds of plenty and worlds of want…is the struggle set forth, on a miniature scale, in this book,” which at its core is an indictment against Western imperialism, racism and colonialism.
Obama goes on to say he identifies with the “desperation and disorder of the powerless,” and how they can “easily slip into violence and despair.”
Obama is one sick America hating freak.
And my friend, the famoussays it all in one of his great photo-shops …
