White House: Ranking House Representatives letter to Chairman Leon Black of Apollo Global Management inquiring about the loan to Jared Kushner (08.03.2018)

Opinion: Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner’s roles in the White House is toxic nepotism!

In nepotism, when a doctor is appointed to do the job of an engineer, and an engineer is appointed to do the job of a lawyer, you know there’s bound to be failure in the system”ETC Wanyanwu

There is a reason why government officials are not supposed to hire family members, that is because of the problem of firing and also of making sure to get officials that actually know their craft. The reason I say this is the prolonged charade in the White House. Where Jared Kushner, the son-in-law and his wife, daughter of the President, Ivanka Trump. Continues with their entitled titles and positions inside the White House. Not because they have education or any public work practice, but they are just inheriting the bloodline of President Donald J. Trump.

Therefore, this is a real issue, the ones believing that these two would be the progressive, the ones making this presidency better. Must soon see the light, because the morning dew isn’t coming, we are still walking in darkness. We can question why they are still there getting sensitive and classified information, as Ivanka is a senior political advisor and Jared Kushner is also that. That means they have the opportunity even without clearance to get that. White House should be the place of protocol and of safety standards when concerning information from all sources. This following the orders and the codes of the Security Organizations that aides and gives the clearances to the staff at the White House. Seemingly, these two family members are struggling to get it. As the time goes by, its been 13 months and still nothing. Kushner and Ivanka has both altered their information and their forms to show the investigators what they were involved in and also what sort of business arrangement they had before their time in the White House. That is why Kushner alone has changed his disclosure dozens of times.

So, even with that at mind and stake, they don’t have proper clearances and are related. The White House gives them opportunities to meet high-ranking individuals and also gets directly involved in government affairs. They will for whatever reasons be there, because the father and stepfather needs them there. Someone he can trust, that will tell it like it is and defend him. Not because of his record, but because of their relation. The others might be there for career or because of ideology, these two will be there for familiar reasons. That is why these cannot be fired and that is a dangerous path.

It should have been clear from the first day of Presidency, it should have been since they were parts of the Transition Team of the President. However, the nepotism and the grand Trumpian ways of things. They can scheme and misuse the state, while the others can be scrutinized, even Billy Bush can be fired for laughing at the comments made by Trump years earlier for “grabbing somebody by the pussy”. While the President are walking scotch-free. We know there are double standard in the United States. The Trump family is above what ordinary people are, the state has sanctioned that, as they are not obligated to get secret, confidential documents, but because of the relation and their position, they are getting it.

We know the relationship are out of whack, when this becomes the sort of answers Ivanka can give to reporters: “Asked by NBC News if she believes the accusers, Trump replied, “I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter, if she believes the accusers of her father, when he’s affirmatively stated that there’s no truth to it. I don’t think that’s a question you would ask many other daughters.” “I believe my father. I know my father. So, I think I have that right, as a daughter, to believe my father,” the senior White House adviser continued in the interview, which aired Monday morning after she represented the United States delegation at the Winter Olympics in South Korea during the closing ceremonies” (Vazquez, 2018).

So there you have the troubling instance, that the family relations as the White House Senior Advisor and daughter, she cannot address this in way that would seem proper. Ivanka has to defend and also act as a victim. Also, defending him in a way that seem to be typical of her father. To believe the ones who are accused and not think of the victims, the ones who has been assaulted and attacked by womanizers. Trump, the President is one, that is known and his tales of infidelity goes back over decades. Therefore, Donald Trump is a typical one and the accuser are not believed because it is not verified in courts. They are put to the side and for now its just allegations, instead of evidence of the misconduct. Even as the porn-star Stormy Daniels and former playboy model Karen McDougal, who both had affairs with Trump and proves how little loyalty he has to wife Melanie Trump. Still, Ivanka will profess and say her father is good and doesn’t do that kind of stuff. Because that is what he tells her. That is why

However, we know it becomes foolish levels of diplomacy, when the shoe-seller and fashion designer is the main person in Germany and also in a delegation recently to South Korea. In both instances there should be someone more qualified from the United States to do these duties. Someone, who has had some knowledge and expertise to actually affirm the stances of the Republic. Instead, the President is sending Ivanka to South Korea. Thinking she could muster something sensational, the only good thing, is that in the delegation there were experts on the nations in question.

Like the South Korean News Agency said: “The U.S. delegation included National Security Council (NSC) director for Korea Allison Hooker. The North Koreans included Choe Kang-il, a senior North Korean diplomat handling affairs with the United States. Hooker was seen accompanying Ivanka Trump at the airport. A U.S. embassy official said that all the delegates, including the NSC director, seem to be leaving on the same day. On Sunday, Kim Yong-chol, the high-ranking official leading the North Korean delegation, which is here until Tuesday, told South Korean President Moon Jae-in that Pyongyang has “enough” willingness to begin dialogue with Washington, according to Seoul’s presidential office” (Yonhap News Agency, 2018).

So it doesn’t seem to be any discussion or anything profound made by Ivanka in South Korea, only that she was there, watching the closing ceremony at the Olympics and had a meeting with the President of South Korea. This just seem typical, that the Trump’s can take credit for something, when they have really done very little. Most likely the meetings on the borders between the South and North Korea, had much more effect and made the combined teams in the Olympics possible. Not because of a sudden traveling daughter of the US President. It is just nepotism to give her any credit for what happen or didn’t happen.

That is the whole problem of having Ivanka and Jared in the White House. They are just family members, with extra titles, but not expertise. If they had sent Hooker to have meetings as a diplomat, it would have made sense. Because of her knowledge and her position within the United Nations. However, she wasn’t made important by the President and neither in the press. That shows that all eyes was on Ivanka and her actions.

This can be a downfall and also be negative route for the White House, that they have to carry water for the Trump family, instead of actually serving the Republic and its institutions. That the self-serving and the narcissistic President isn’t enough, it is also his closest relatives. Who are all under the roof, creating problems for the conduct of the security of information and for the confidentiality of the state. They can suddenly misuse the power and authority, even if they don’t have it and the President can sanction it with recklessness because he trust his family members.

That is the problem and that is why this Presidency is toxic just by this decision alone. He might not know it or even in his tiny mind understand it. But everyone around him should know it. That the family matters should be left outside of the office, not inside. The White House isn’t a golf-club, it is the epicenter of government and where the executive orders come from. Peace.

USA: House Democrats letter ask the FBI to review Ivanka Trump’s Security Clearance after failure to disclose husbands (Kushner) meetings with Foreign Officials (19.07.2017)

Representative Waters tables bill (HR. 442) to inquire documentation of Trump businesses financial transactions to Russia!

In the House of Representative, one of the Representative Maxine Waters of California have introduced a new bill on the 13th July 2017. This one is an assault directly on the cash flow to the Trump Organization and it’s possible connection to the Russian businesses and associates. This becomes important, as the President and his business hasn’t been transparent. Therefore, this is another try to get the President and his family to deliver the connections and funds earned from foreign sources like the Russians. Especially, since the revelation and revealing companies that the Trump Organization has been working with.

The Representative in Congress has gotten Co-Sponsors on the bill, they are Daniel Kildee, Gwen Moore, Al Green and Ed Perlmutter, they are all Democrats, but set the standard for their persistence wish to find the truth and within reason for what is seem as just in the American society.

The important parts of the bill is this:

Of inquiry directing the Secretary of the Treasury to provide certain documents in the Secretary’s possession to the House of Representatives relating to President Trump’s financial connections to Russia, certain illegal financial schemes, and related information” (Waters, 2017).

(1) loans, guarantees, or other forms of credit, made or extended by Deutsche Bank AG, the Bayrock Group LLC, Vnesheconombank Group (VEB), Sberbank of Russia, Alfa Group, VTB Group, Gazprombank, any subsidiary or affiliate of the foregoing, the Russian government, or any Russian senior foreign political figure (as defined under section 1010.605 of title 31, Code of Federal Regulations), to

(A) President Trump;

(B) President Trump’s family members—

(i) Donald Trump Jr.;

(ii) Eric Trump;

(iii) Felix Sater;

(iv) Gary Cohn;

(v) Carter Page;

(vi) Roger Stone;

(vii) Rick Gates;

(viii) Wilbur Ross;

(ix) Rex Tillerson;

(x) Michael Flynn;

(xi) Jeff Sessions;

(xii) Michael Cohen;

(xiii) Rhona Graff;

(xiv) Rob Goldstone;

(xv) Boris Epshteyn; and

(xvi) Michael Caputo;

(D) any Trump-owned, -branded, -licensed, or managed hotels, casinos, and golf courses, previously identified by the Department of the Treasury, including—

(i) the Trump Taj Mahal Associates, LLC, d/b/a Taj Mahal Casino Resort;

(ii) the Trump National Doral Miami; and

(iii) the Trump International Hotel, Washington, DC;

(E) any individual described in subparagraph (A), (B), or (C) in connection with—

(i) the property located at 666 5th Avenue, New York, NY; and

(ii) the property located at 229 West 43rd Street, New York, NY; and

(F) the Imperial Pacific International Holdings Ltd., or the Best Sunshine Live Casino;

(2) any financial accounts located outside of the United States and any individual described in subparagraph (A), (B), or (C) of paragraph (1);

(3) Deutsche Bank AG’s 2011 “mirror trading” scheme;

(4) the “Russian Laundromat” (also known as the “Global Laundromat” and the “Moldovan Scheme”);

(5) any money laundering violations involving individuals, businesses, or property described in subparagraphs (A) through (F) of paragraph (1);

(6) any violation of U.S. sanctions, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, or section 953 of title 18, United States Code (commonly known as the “Logan Act”), by any person or entity described in subparagraphs (A) through (D) of paragraph (1);

(7) any “business rule” developed by the FinCEN to screen data under section 21 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act, chapter 2 of title I of Public Law 91–508, or subchapter II of chapter 53 of title 31, United States Code (collectively, commonly known as the “Bank Secrecy Act”), to identify financial transactions involving Russian senior foreign political figures, or any individual described in subparagraph (A), (B), or (C) of paragraph (1); and

(8) any Egmont Group requests made to a foreign Financial Intelligence Unit, including Cyprus’ Financial Intelligence Unit, the Unit for Combating Money Laundering (MOKAS), pertaining to the financial transactions of any individual described in subparagraph (A), (B), or (C) of paragraph (1)” (Waters, 2017)

In our time, there are enough questions to the ethical behavior on the New York Gang, which in implied in the current administration of running both the United States Government and the Trump Administration. This all puts all the dots together. If the New York Gang needs funding and gets it through agreements and deals done with Russians, clearly they will collude with them when they get into power. Like its seemingly has done and there are more than enough banks, transactions and unrevealed trades that has to surface to make the unanswered questions gone away. The President and his men are now in hot water. All of the fiscal and financial business together with all of this Russian operatives really proves the possible connections. That long before the Trump Campaign and other political aspirations. Even if he tried to run in the past as well.

It is time for the New York Gang to be transparent and open up. If not with time it will get ugly and the revealed truth will never disappear as long there are unanswered questions. Especially, since the President and his affiliates never reveal their true value or company profits. Therefore, the need for oversight and look into the businesses owned by him. They are still run by the family and within his reach. So he will know what Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and other leaders of the Organization are up-to. To think otherwise is foolish. Peace.

“No need for Banking Regulations” are the memo from the leaked Goldman Sachs Speeches from Hillary Clinton!

goldman-sach-hillary-900-e1455056003700

We have all now at some point if we have followed the news cycled heard about the Podesta leaks from Wikileaks; I have already had a few pieces on it and there is still lot’s detail that deserves to be looked and showed. Hillary Rodham Clinton is the Democratic Party Presidential Nominee and running with bravura in her campaign. This is because the leaks show the Democratic Party behavior and her real moderate political framework.

With her moderate mind and positive faith in Wall Street doing their own thing; the paid speeches and transcripts from Goldman Sachs show even more what kind of economic policies that her administration would put forward. If not what she would not do; here they are:

“*Clinton Said, With Dodd-Frank, There Was “A Need To Do Something Because For Political Reasons” Because Members Of Congress “Can’t Sit Idly By And Do Nothing.” *“And with political people, again, I would say the same thing, you know, there was a lot of complaining about Dodd-Frank, but there was also a need to do something because for political reasons, if you were an elected member of Congress and people in your constituency were losing jobs and shutting businesses and everybody in the press is saying it’s all the fault of Wall Street, you can’t sit idly by and do nothing, but what you do is really important.” [GS2, 10/24/13].

She has been saying that Dodd-Frank is a positive first step of regulation of the Wall Street after the too big to fail banks after the recession. Hillary Clinton is claiming that Dodd-Frank is the reason for American People losing jobs, not securing it through the regulations put forward, even how weak they are. Dodd-Frank is not perfect, but first step to regulate a market that has been free-for-all for ages. Therefore, a bank like Goldman Sachs wants to be totally free again!

*Tim O’Neill Told Clinton “We Really Did Appreciate It” When She Had Been “Courageous In Some Respects To Associated With Wall Street And This Environment.” *“MR. O’NEILL: By the way, we really did appreciate when you were the senator from New York and your continued involvement in the issues (inaudible) to be courageous in some respects to associated with Wall Street and this environment. Thank you very much. SECRETARY CLINTON: Well, I don’t feel particularly courageous. I mean, if we’re going to be an effective, efficient economy, we need to have all part of that engine running well, and that includes Wall Street and Main Street. And there’s a big disconnect and a lot of confusion right now. So I’m not interested in, you know, turning the clock back or pointing fingers, but I am interested in trying to figure out how we come together to chart a better way forward and one that will restore confidence in, you know, small and medium-size businesses and consumers and begin to chip away at the unemployment rate. So it’s something that I, you know, if you’re a realist, you know that people have different roles to play in politics, economics, and this is an important role, but I do think that there has to be an understanding of how what happens here on Wall Street has such broad consequences not just for the domestic but the global economy, so more thought has to be given to the process and transactions and regulations so that we don’t kill or maim what works, but we concentrate on the most effective way of moving forward with the brainpower and the financial power that exists here.” [GS2, 10/24/13].

Here again, Clinton are saying it is the people who doesn’t see the engine of Wall Street and their works, they are not understanding the efforts of Wall Street to the Main Street. What she is saying is that people should visit Wall Street and therefore understand their actions that effects global and local activity. The People are supposed to be proud of the Wall Street and their ways the businesses acts. So the Moderate Clinton is praising the greedy and mechanisms that eats of the plate without consideration of Main Street America.

*Speaking About Financial Regulations, Clinton Said “The People That Know The Industry Better Than Anybody Are The People Who Work In The Industry.” *“There’s nothing magic about regulations, too much is bad, too little is bad. How do you get to the golden key, how do we figure out what works? And the people that know the industry better than anybody are the people who work in the industry.” [GS2, 10/24/13].

This point Clinton has done before, she has so little faith in regulations, as with Dodd-Frank that she praised her involvement in, still with Goldman Sachs she acts that it is problem. This with the regulations that are keeping the banks regulated and to act to a standard instead of following their greed instead of serving their costumers and citizens; the banks are nobody without accounts and costumers who are earning money, not only the stakeholders and Wall Street cynic attitude that yield positive results. Something that regulators have to consider so that the people’s tax-money is not doled on banks who has earned on the blood of the common man as it happen after recession. Something Dodd-Frank we’re out to stop!

hrc-goldman

*Clinton Said “I Represented All Of You For Eight Years. I Had Great Relations And Worked So Close Together After 9/11 To Rebuild Downtown.” *“I represented all of you for eight years. I had great relations and worked so close together after 9/11 to rebuild downtown, and a lot of respect for the work you do and the people who do it, but I do — I think that when we talk about the regulators and the politicians, the economic consequences of bad decisions back in ’08, you know, were devastating, and they had repercussions throughout the world.” [GS2, 10/24/13].

That the repercussions we’re because of the free-markets we’re allowed to make sophisticated business-models that earned the bankers and not the citizens who risked it all on the real-estate market and borrowed through the roof. The Dodd-Frank we’re to stop these mechanisms; if regulations are so bad than the people are used to blead so the bankers can live life like real-life Gatsby! Is that what Clinton really wants in her moderate world?

*Clinton Said “Banks Are Not Doing What They Need To Do Because They’re Scared Of Regulations, They’re Scared Of The Other Shoe Dropping.” *“I mean, right now, there are so many places in our country where the banks are not doing what they need to do because they’re scared of regulations, they’re scared of the other shoe dropping, they’re just plain scared, so credit is not flowing the way it needs to to restart economic growth. So people are, you know, a little — they’re still uncertain, and they’re uncertain both because they don’t know what might come next in terms of regulations, but they’re also uncertain because of changes in a global economy that we’re only beginning to take hold of.” [GS2, 10/24/13].

So the continued praise of anti-regulations, the moderate free-market and belief that the banks can monitor themselves. She is saying to them that Dodd-Frank and such is bad! That the people of Goldman Sachs hearing that they could be allowed to do anything. This is what we can expect from her now and I am not surprised, it’s not like these banks wants to be regulated and have the Federal Government telling them how to act. They are regulated for the safety of the costumers, which is the people and also the Stakeholders doesn’t blead blood out of stones. Something Clinton believes in or selling Goldman Sachs. Peace.

Remarkable remarks made by Hillary Clinton in her Wall Street speeches!

hillary-wall-street-banks-780x439

Some people have asked for this a long time as we all who has followed politics knows that the Democratic Party Presidential Candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton has a track-record for paid speeches and earnings while being a career politician. This is a legacy she has left behind, neither if she likes it or not.

Hillary Clinton has been asked if she can reveal her transcripts or manuscripts for the speeches to the dozen of companies who has earned her millions. Therefore the these scripts proves her real belief, she is not an progressive as she made to believe to kick-out Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Party Primary.

To the Xerox on her Political Stance:

“*Clinton Said That Both The Democratic And Republican Parties Should Be “Moderate.” *“URSULA BURNS: Interesting. Democrats? SECRETARY CLINTON: Oh, long, definitely. URSULA BURNS: Republicans? SECRETARY CLINTON: Unfortunately, at the time, short. URSULA BURNS: Okay. We’ll go back to questions. SECRETARY CLINTON: We need two parties. URSULA BURNS: Yeah, we do need two parties. SECRETARY CLINTON: Two sensible, moderate, pragmatic parties.” [Hillary Clinton Remarks, Remarks at Xerox, 3/18/14]

She is more pragmatic and moderate, than Progressive, something the TYT have for instance been truthful about all along, and me too as that has been playing for the gallery and not her true self. In the next ones she proves that the Perception of the leaders of the Market and Economic framework, as will be shown about her true belief in banking when talking to the Goldman Sachs, Banco Itau and the Duetsche Bank. Here she proves her real allegiance with the banks and not with citizens who pays for the wealth of the banks while their house-market defaulted.

To the Duetsche Bank in 2014 on the Economy:

“*Clinton: “Even If It May Not Be 100 Percent True, If The Perception Is That Somehow The Game Is Rigged, That Should Be A Problem For All Of Us.” *“Now, it’s important to recognize the vital role that the financial markets play in our economy and that so many of you are contributing to. To function effectively those markets and the men and women who shape them have to command trust and confidence, because we all rely on the market’s transparency and integrity. So even if it may not be 100 percent true, if the perception is that somehow the game is rigged, that should be a problem for all of us, and we have to be willing to make that absolutely clear. And if there are issues, if there’s wrongdoing, people have to be held accountable and we have to try to deter future bad behavior, because the public trust is at the core of both a free market economy and a democracy.” [Clinton Remarks to Deutsche Bank, 10/7/14].

To Goldman Sachs on Banking Regulations:

Speaking About The Importance Of Proper Regulation, Clinton Said “The People That Know The Industry Better Than Anybody Are The People Who Work In The Industry.”* “I mean, it’s still happening, as you know. People are looking back and trying to, you know, get compensation for bad mortgages and all the rest of it in some of the agreements that are being reached. There’s nothing magic about regulations, too much is bad, too little is bad. How do you get to the golden key, how do we figure out what works? And the people that know the industry better than anybody are the people who work in the industry. And I think there has to be a recognition that, you know, there’s so much at stake now, I mean, the business has changed so much and decisions are made so quickly, in nano seconds basically. We spend trillions of dollars to travel around the world, but it’s in everybody’s interest that we have a better framework, and not just for the United States but for the entire world, in which to operate and trade.” [Goldman Sachs AIMS Alternative Investments Symposium, 10/24/13].

As she has shown here is her real belief in the market handling them and she says that the ones knowing it is the ones working in it. Hillary isn’t really for regulations and even remarking that their either complaints about too much or too little.

To Banco Itau in the 2013 on an Open Market:

“*Hillary Clinton Said Her Dream Is A Hemispheric Common Market, With Open Trade And Open Markets. *“My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, some time in the future with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere.” [05162013 Remarks to Banco Itau.doc, p. 28]

If you ever thought she was against the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement that will be beholden for the corporations and not for the citizens, the ones leading to the clear permits of more control of businesses over regulations. As the trading will counter the values of national states and governments as the work regulations is less important than the value of an Open-Market. Well, then some on technology.

On Blackberry and Technology in 2014:

“Clinton Said When She Got To State, Employees “Were Not Mostly Permitted To Have Handheld Devices.”* “You know, when Colin Powell showed up as Secretary of State in 2001, most State Department employees still didn’t even have computers on their desks. When I got there they were not mostly permitted to have handheld devices. I mean, so you’re thinking how do we operate in this new environment dominated by technology, globalizing forces? We have to change, and I can’t expect people to change if I don’t try to model it and lead it.” [Clinton Speech For General Electric’s Global Leadership Meeting – Boca Raton, FL, 1/6/14].

Here is even more news on Colin Powell, he seemed like ghost being mentioned lots, especially after his own e-mails we’re hacked where he profoundly spoke ill of Trump and endorsed Clinton, if I remember correctly. Here Clinton in Baca Raton in Florida and want to lead it, not being follower; that is what she asks of the men and woman in General Electric; she wants the giant company to lead and not follow. That shows her way of selling stories to her crowd. Surely something she has done during the campaign and will continue until she ends in the White House like her husband in the past.

What is clear is the manner of which she is proving to moderate, open-free-market, belief in self-governing banks and the will of TPP. So the talk that Obama made it into the Congress and Senate to shield Clinton is a blatant lie and the world should know it. Peace.

Barclays and Standard Chartered picketed in London over Bidco business (23.08.2016)

Bidco Protest

Members of Prince Charles’ Banking Environment Initiative fail to cut ties with companies that deforest in Africa.

KAMPALA, Uganda, August 23, 2016 – East African protesters have taken to the streets of London to demonstrate against banks that do business with Bidco Africa, highlighting the connection between global financial institutions, The Prince of Wales and widespread deforestation in Africa.

Barclays and Standard Chartered saw their London headquarters picketed due to their funding of Nairobi-based Bidco, a company that cuts down thousands of acres of pristine rainforest in Uganda, and engages in human rights and tax violations in Kenya and Tanzania.

The Bidco Truth Coalition (No2Bidco.org), an activist alliance, has revealed that the Banking Environment Initiative (BEI), based at Cambridge University’s Institute for Sustainability Leadership under the patronage of The Prince of Wales, is failing in its mission to lead the banking industry in collectively directing capital towards environmentally and socially sustainable economic development.

The BEI’s nine member banks are Barclays, Standard Chartered, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, Lloyds, Northern Trust, RBS, Santander and Westpac.

By signing up to BEI’s ‘Soft Commodities’ Compact, the nine banks have committed to only direct capital towards sustainable business models and achieve zero net deforestation among their client Companies.

Under BEI guidelines, member banks must drop clients that don’t measure up to socially and environmentally responsible policies.

Bidco Africa, which has engaged in multiple human rights, labour, tax and environmental violations, has publically stated that it does business with Barclays, Standard Chartered, Citibank, Equity Bank and Kenya Commercial Bank.

Bidco owns an oil palm plantation that has deforested 18,000 acres of rainforest in Uganda. Bidco has also grabbed land from over 100 smallholder farmers.

The environmental impact of the palm oil project has led activists to call on the UN Global Compact to eject Bidco from its roster of members.

In 2004, the World Bank pulled out of Bidco’s Uganda project, citing violations of the World Bank’s anti-deforestation policies.

But BEI has remained silent, and Barclays, Standard Chartered and other banks continue to do business with Bidco Africa.

The Bidco Truth Coalition calls on BEI, its patron, The Prince of Wales, and BEI’s nine member banks to publically state that they will no longer do business with Bidco and other companies that destroy the environment.

Hillary Clinton got paid millions of dollars only to speak in 2014 and 2015!

Bill and Hill Speech Cartoon

This has been used as a tool for both Republic Presumptive Presidential Nominee Donald Trump and also by fellow Party mate and contender Bernie Sanders. Both of them have question Hillary Rodham Clinton’s role as Politician when she has had these paid obligations towards companies. The Same have Donald Trump as I have written about before, as I wrote on the 19th May 2016, that his financial disclosure papers showed the estimated earnings on that was $1,000,000 in 2015, alone. So that Donald Trump have had speeches and earned money on it, sets the standard for the discussion, as he have attacked her constantly. But now there have been released Democratic National Committee (DNC) papers as the Guccifer leaks. They are showing certainty and documents of the past Hillary Clinton and also certain other disputed content on the Democratic Presidential Candidate.

I do this because I have addressed Donald Trump, with care and caution, been honest that I dislike his candidacy and his whole arrangements of xenophobia, fear of immigrants, his lies and his whole right-wing adjusted campaign that eats on fear instead of policy, the same as the ones that one the Brexit, the fear of Polish immigrants instead of thinking to what extent a transitional government and an exit could mean for the United Kingdom, the same ignorance and belittling campaigning is happening from Donald Trump. While this is being said, I am addressing Hillary Clinton today with her facts and not Trumps fictions as the reality of the paperwork and the extent of monies that are proved. Still not the rhetoric or the words of these speeches, but surely the importance is not in the words, but in following the money.

hillary-wall-street-banks-780x439

In 2014 alone she have official spoken to 45 associations, companies or LLC that she got paid for doing so. The close estimation in total is around $10.000.000 on the engagements that she had, the most ordinary pay for the speeches was $225.5000. So her earnings on speaking is for some of us astronomical. And could be questioned! The certain companies must have heard some positive words and words of honor as she spoke to the crowds of the GE, A&E Television Networks, Pharmaceutical Care Management Association, Xerox Corporation, Let’s Talk Entertainment Inc., twice for tinePublic Inc., twice for Innovation Arts and Entertainment, Corning Incorporated, Ameriprise, Cisco, Deutsche Bank AG, twice for Salesforce.com and Qualcomm Incorporated, and so many more! These are just a few of the companies that paid her in 2014. The massive amount of them and that certain companies had her twice in the year.

In 2015, she had less of speaking engagements only 6 in total and with 5 associations, companies or LLC. They paid in total $1.475.000. These companies we’re twice tinePublic Inc., Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC), Watermark’s Silicon Valley Conference for Women, EBay Inc. and American Camping Association. These proves together with the year before that the one that really supports the Clinton’s and Hillary is the tinePublic Inc. The company is known for this: “Oprah Winfrey: tinePublic Inc. is the market leader in producing high profile events and conferences across North America” (Woodlawn Post Canada, 28.11.2012). So they are surely paying to create events with Hillary Clinton as well, it seems.

Hillary Speech

They have had her four times in 2014 and 2015. While the other are banks, associations, medial and pharmaceuticals, Internet Companies and other bigger companies that want their profession in a grand standing with the establish politician.

What is special from the Financial Tax Returns from Hillary Clinton is the first cash at hand in the JP Morgan Custody Account where it’s disclosed $5.000.000 – $25.000.000. Because that is fortune for ordinary folks, and even more for seasoned politician, proves that the years of being in the limelight have made the Clinton’s wealthy (Public Finance Disclosure Report, 2015).

Next time I will look into the donors that funded the Clinton Foundation and the once who have given the most to the Foundation. This is the second part of leak for my part, as there is extensive material and documents in the file that Guccifer 2.0. opened to the public. Peace.
