Opinion: The rich are so poor nowadays!

“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”Franklin D. Roosevelt

Well, this time in history will be remembered, in the times that the multi-national corporations have most of them fled their regional scenes and put their headquarters and main operations into tax havens. Therefore, with this in mind, the states and republics that actually is where they make the profits get less tax and get fewer monies to spend on public services. That does not make them poor, but smart someone might say. This is legal and the openness of the economies let them do it, but to be frank, we should question this big giant corporations for their fleeing fortunes abroad.

The corporations are not alone in all of this, the rich people themselves cannot sustained this, they cannot afford to pay reasonable taxes, and they need tax-relief so they can salvage their Monte Carlo and their Lamborghini’s. They have their massive mansions and stalls of cars, but cannot pay the percentages on the tax as ordinary working-class do. In addition, the working-class use decades on end to pay down the mortgage on the house and loan on their Ford Fiesta. If they can even afford a house and a car at his point.

The American enterprise and experience is really seeing it, as they plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, because the wealthy are too broke or to selfish to help the working-class who made them rich. That the working-class and industrial worker are falling behind as new schemes to outrun their possibilities. The corporations and the believers of free economies want more flexibility, but do not give equal wages or compensations. Therefore, the loser in the transactions are the workers and not the companies. Secondly, the states earn less without added productivity.

It is naive that the businesses care about other things than the bottom-line is vicious, like the wealthy have the capacity to share the spoils, which they have earned on the commoners and the citizens. Therefore, the spoils, which in some industries entails sweatshop workers and exports to the Western hemisphere with grand profits for the clothing and appeal giants. Something that the workers in Bangladesh or Pakistan doesn’t see anything delivered back, than a filthy industrial complex and possible health hazards for their hours work on end for a lousy T-shirts.

The others are the ones who are doing mining and extraction for the technology and IT businesses that has no issues with the illegal and militias taking controls over mining fields and black-market trading of rare earth minerals or cobalt for that matter. As long as the giant companies trading computers, smart-phones and whatnot get their profits. Certainly, the CEO and other leaders in the corporations should worry of the implications and the lives destroyed while their businesses are earning loads of monies. There should be some sort of certification of the weak trading points; if they knowingly paid, some of the monies on technology could fund militias and illegal armed conflicts.

This is real poverty, that we have systems, salary structures and imports that hurt local areas, while the businesses earn fortunes, that again is flying on the merry to a tax haven in the pacific through a shell-company set-up by lawyers in Panama. In addition, this is legal and just, by law and in society. That the same companies telling their workers that they cannot afford more wages, since they have to stack millions upon millions in the British Virgin Island. So that the shareholders and stakeholders can earn profits for the toils and sweat of fellow workers.

So when I hear that the workers cannot ask for bigger salaries, while the states and republics create tax-holidays and tax-breaks, incentives for “investments” while the big-men are doling away vast fortunes in the middle of the day. Like a legal heist, a theft of both tax and salary, the salaries that could be used more in the system to gain growth, and secondly the added tax that could build roads and infrastructure that the company could need. However, hey, we do not need proper roads and wages, as long as the rich can travel to Monaco and St. Tropez whenever they feel like it. We are foolish to think otherwise!

When you hear that the rich has to get tax-breaks and their taxes cut, know that they are poor in spirit and heart. They may have vast fortunes and riches, but their hearts are empty. They do not see the problems of the day-to-day basis of the ones creating their empires. They do not see the people who buys their labeled products and services. They only see the bottom-line, the empty shells companies’ accounts and the schemes to hide the monies. That is because these wealthy people are so poor; they cannot afford to be like the rest of us.

The wealthy are so poor, they are so poor that they have to avoid taxes or pay taxes, because if they were paying taxes they would be like us. They would have the same responsibilities and have the same understanding of welfare and public services. Therefore, since they do not need the public service, they can afford to travel abroad for health-care; they can afford to send their kids to private schools and can afford to import goods. Then they do not need the support and the base line of the republic or the state. Like you and I do. Therefore, with that in mind, which is why they are so poor. Their poverty is in the mind and in their spirit; they cannot be a part of us, because they want to shield themselves from us. Still, earning our monies and taking our cheap labor, no problem!

This poor people need help, they need guidance, their riches might fall out of their hands, might be lost in coup d’état or worse than they get bankrupt. Than they need the states to salvage their business or their bank, with our tax-monies, without any hesitation, but when it was booming. That was the time they had no need of paying taxes or paying amends to the state through the regulations. Like we do and pay for our right to live and use the needed services of the states.

In these interesting times of ours, we have the riches seeking to pay-less, while the working-class is footing the bills or trying too. While the republics and states make it harder for public service and make it more expensive to pay for the needed services. This are all made in the hands of the wealthy and the multi-national corporations, without considering the implications of the commoner, the working-class nor the middle-class that are all sinking on the behalf of the rich. Certainly, the belief that the trickle-down economy should be a project avoided, but to many still have faith in the paradigm. While very, few have any social mobility or have the capacity to go from one class to the next. Peace.

Clinton Foundation leaks: Phantom aid to Ethiopia

wcj-clinton-ethiopia-memo-2015-p1wcj-clinton-ethiopia-memo-2015-p2

We can all question the Clinton Foundation and the CHAI works in Ethiopia, especially after the reason for the visits in Ethiopia. By the memo of 2011 with Sheik Mommad of Midme in Ethiopia, if Bill Clinton would visit Ethiopia than the CF would get $2US Million from him; that doesn’t sound like a donor aid, but greased politician for their foundation. Not something that you should expect from a man of the Stature of Clinton’s. This is insulting, and the next levels of how the continue, when you look into it isn’t what it it’s all perceives.

CHAI would like to request that President Clinton call Sheik Mohammed to thank him for offering his plane to the conference in Ethiopia and expressing regrets that President Clinton’s schedule does not permit him to attend the conference. Ed Wood has prepared a briefing memo for President Clinton about the call which is attached. Please contact either Ed or me if you have any questions or if you need anything else from us” [Ira Magaziner to John Podesta – ‘Subject: FW: Talking points for President Clinton and the Sheik’ 22.11.2011].

After that one fellow staffer answers it with:

“Unless Sheikh Mo has sent us a $6 million check, this sounds crazy to do” [Adesai to a group of Clinton Foundation Mails – ‘Subject: FW: Talking points for President Clinton and the Sheik’ 22nd November 2011].

So after the agreement between the Sheik, that he sends money every-time Bill Clinton travels to Ethiopia. With that kind of suction to the Midme leader, he is still not allowed to travel to their Conference months after the agreement between Bill and the Sheik. Proves that only “Pay to Play” if the Sheik had paid another fortune of $6 US Million to the CF, than he be included at the Conference, which is not how it is supposed to be, but the CF Staff acts like its normal to ask for this kind of bribe.

Proven results of Work in Ethiopia and beyond:

“I’m sensitive to that (which is why I’m asking) but those CHAI Stats are on nearly every public listing of CF accomplishment. I’m want to make people think twice about calls for dropping grants to CF or return the money and the HIV/AIDS work hits home in a way that other stats don’t. Plus it’s international work. I’m concerned about saying we used money to fund healthy schools (because we didn’t use the funding for that)” [Craig Minassian to Tina Flournoy – ‘Subject: Re: WaPo – Draft Quote’ 25th February 2015].

This here just shows that the importance of the projects in Ethiopia wasn’t on building resilience towards HIV-AIDS or healthy schools as the Clinton Foundation and staffs doesn’t feel secure of showing the numbers that they have delivered to the numbers they have professed to change before. That is a worrying Foundation, Humanitarian Organization or even Aid Organization that should deliver some results; the results seem to be more important that the Foundation secure funding from the Sheik, than delivering results. 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.

#PodestaLeaks: The whispers of mismanagement and lies from the Clinton Foundation!

clinton-cf

I have earlier looked into the mails considering the Campaign advice and also the Media’s connection with Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Let it be clear, I do not because like Trump! I don’t like his campaign one single bit, but these leaks of insider information and the scale of it at such extent at this present time. Makes it very hard not to dig deep and look into it. Because the needed looks and quest through the paper-trail left behind her campaign and such. This paper will be about the charitable campaign and the E-Mails I found that we’re interesting because of the actual behaviour there are accepting and subscribing to with their name up high on the mantle.

The Clinton Foundation, the subsidiaries and their programs are already a bit scrutinised and the legendary “Pay-to-Play” where a politician get monies for Super-PACs or Foundation, when service rendered the obligated politician will help the donor and their companies with legislation, regulation and even licenses they usually wouldn’t get if it wasn’t for their charitable and giving ways.

Today, the piece about something simple as the way they are signing promises as the Clinton becomes Secretary of State after Barrack Obama becomes President. Therefore with Hillary Clinton’s position the Foundation could not get donor-funding from foreign sources. The Foundation went out with information claiming they didn’t receive or suspending it, but inside and behind closed doors that apparently still happen. Take a look!

Broken Promise by the Clinton Foundation:

“Operation of CGI.  Should Senator Clinton be nominated and confirmed for Secretary of State, the Foundation will incorporate CGI as a separate entity from the Foundation.  President Clinton will continue in his role as principal host and be identified as CGI’s Founding Chairman, but he will not serve as an officer or director of the newly established entity.  Consistent with current practices, President Clinton personally will not solicit funds for CGI and only will attend fundraising events as a honored guest or speaker.  President Clinton also will continue to send invitation letters to potential attendees and guests of CGI; however, he will no longer send sponsorship letters (which seek contributions to CGI).  Apart for attendance fees for CGI, CGI will not accept contributions from foreign governments.  CGI also will suspend plans for CGI events outside the United States during any service by Senator Clinton at the State Department” (MoU between the WJC Foundation and HRC Foundation with Obama Administration (Draft Document) – 28.11.2008).

CHAI Program under former President Clinton:

“You probably already are aware but just to be sure: yesterday in the CHAI board meeting, Ira discussed the formation of an advisory board for CHAI – he said he is targeting 10 people to each give $500k per year for 3 years. He mentioned the names below. He also said he is looking to do a series of dinners on the west coast, east coast, and overseas to raise money for a CHAI Innovation Fund that would “invest” in projects / businesses that CHAI deems worthy. He said the first dinner is on west coast with 30 people and hosted by Christian Anthony who he said he found via the Brown University alumni network. Given the enormous range of things that Ira is proposing the Fund be empowered to invest in, it occurred to me that IF the organization is comfortable with the creation of such a Fund bearing WJC’s name (via CHAI), then why not have CF do it, so that CF can decide whether to invest in CHAI projects or also in other things like a farm in Africa, etc – and also to give WJC better control of it? The proposed CHAI Innovation Fund seems poised to go well beyond what we would consider to be the core traditional work of CHAI on HIV/AIDS, malaria, etc (at least based on the investment examples in the documents Ira provided) and I therefore just wondered why we’d cede this to CHAI to do/control. It’s probably safe to assume that any Fund that bears WJC’s name will attract “investors” or donors or whatever we call them. Maybe I am over-thinking this, but just wanted to brainstorm aloud and I’m happy to drop this if it’s not worth discussing further. Thanks, Ami NAMES IRA MENTIONED FOR CHAI ADVISORY BOARD (I probably am misspellin these): – Craig Colgate at Pegasus Capital (Ira found via Brown U) – Bob Selander (former CEO of Mastercard) – Tood Fisher, Chief Admin Officer at KKR (also via Brown U) – Bill Shuster at Evercore – Bob Mancini, CEO of Cogentics (formerly at Goldman) – Jeff Kushner from Blue Mountain Capital in the UK (Amitabh Desai sending mail to fellow Clinton Foundation Staffers – ‘Subject: CHAI fund and advisory board’ 27.03.2012).

Foundation Policy Adjustment Draft:

  • Suspend Planning for New CGI International Events:  The Clinton Global Initiative will no longer undertake CGI-International events nor accept any funding from foreign government hosts beyond the already-scheduled events in May (CGI-Morocco) and June (CGI-Greece) of 2015.  And, apart from membership fees, CGI also will not accept sponsorship fees from foreign governments for its domestic CGI conferences/meetings”. (Foundation Police Adjustment Draft answers for TinaMP, 08.04.2015) Rather than say “suspend planning” why not say that the Foundation will not host international events beyond the one (or two if we do Greece) already committed to for this year. THIS WAS LANGUAGE FROM MOU – FINE TO CHANGE – SEE TRACK CHANGE OPTION (Foundation Police Adjustment Draft answers for TinaMP, 08.04.2015).
  • No Contributions from New Foreign Governments:  The Clinton Foundation will not accept any funding from new foreign governments for its programming ; the Foundation will only accept contributions from:” (Foundation Police Adjustment Draft answers for TinaMP, 08.04.2015). This leaves out endowment and things like – if there were another disaster like Haiti – is that the intention? IT IS SAYING WE WON’T TAKE SUCH MONEY IF THERE IS A DISASTER; BY SAYING WE WON’T TAKE NEW FOREIGN GOV’T CONTRIBUTIONS, WE ARE SAYING NO NEW COUNTRIES TO THE ENDOWMENT EITHER (Foundation Police Adjustment Draft answers for TinaMP, 08.04.2015).

What it is supposed to say on Foundation letter:

“The Foundation should not announce what CHAI will do. We could change the beginning to say the “the Foundation and the Clinton Health Access Initiative will adjust their policies during the period of Secretary Clinton’s run for office as follows:” (Bruce Lindsay to Maura Pally – ‘Re: RE: Re:’ (08.04.2015).

Cheryl Mills on Foreign Contributions:

I sent a correction yesterday to what the policy wason foreign contributors – it was not a blanket no foreign contributions (though that  is what happened in practice); i*t was no foreign contributions for CGI; for other initiatives like CHAI (Aids), CCI (climate change), CHDI (development in Africa), it required approval by DOS/WH to accept NEW contributions (or significant increase in an existing one)*. So question would be – if a country like Germany decides to contribute to funding aids drug that the foundation facilitates through a low-cost consortium, is answer no, the Foundation wouldn’t do it or yes, it would and would immediately disclose it – that is more likely situation facing Foundation.” (Cheryl Mills sent to John Azalone of Anzalone Liszt Grove Research – ‘Subject: Re: Foundation | Foreign Contributors Statement’ (19.02.2015).

You cannot say after reading it that it looks good for the Clinton Foundation when this kind of practices are happening with sanction from the CF staff and their allies. That they are doing illegal funding of their operations as they are not honoring the agreement with Government of United States and as a key role as Secretary of State; so one of the persons who has one of the noblest positions used her family-name to get donor-funding to their foundation and programs without legality.

Here I am turning into something else that is also worrying about place that a man like Rwandan President Paul Kagame has gotten in the Foundation and it’s subsidiaries. I don’t know if it has become like that because President Bill Clinton didn’t have to stomach to stop the genocide in 1994 and continued supporting the RPF and RPA conquests to oust former American Ally in Mobutu in the DRC. Also, knowing that the other darling of U.S. Museveni in Uganda we’re helping and facilitating the rise of RPA as Kagame we’re a vital part of the NRA and their first government in Uganda. People’ tend to forget this and see beyond those chapters of life. Like they are long forgotten past, but even to this day President Kagame is in good hands with his former American Ally. We will see in 2012, that he was set-up as a Co-Chairman with Carlos Slim. Also that through the graces of Blair that Kagame appreciated Bill Clinton’s “unflinching support”. Take a look!

kagame-bill-clinton

Rwanda – Kagame Co-Chair in CGI projects:

“This is follow-up to our accomodation of these folks at CGI. As you may recall, this commission is co-chaired by Kagame and Carlos Slim. We’ll set a call with the commission chair to discuss further his proposal in this letter to WJC that we do a broadband panel at CGI in September. Thanks, Ami” (Amitabh Desai, sending mail to fellow Clinton Foundation Staffers – ‘Subject: Fw: Letter to President Clinton’ 20.01.2012).

Rwanda- by all means Kagame accepts their support!

“Ambassador asked if WJC/CF/CGI could do anything to help on education/universities in Rwanda. I explained we are constrained by funding but if they have specific ideas, to let us know. He said they’ll put together some ideas for us. – Ambassador asked about attracting more investments/businesses to Rwanda, including mining/natural resources investors. I emphasized CGI as an opportunity for Kagame to engage investors. I also mentioned Barclays interest in doing something at CGI on investing in Africa. Also mentioned Kagame doing a side-meeting at/around CGI that convenes investors interested in Rwanda, akin to WJC’s investor meeting for Ireland or session WJC did for Haiti last year at CGI. – Ambassador said criticism of Kagame seems to have quieted, partly due to WJC and Blair’s unwavering support for Kagame. Ambassador said Kagame and Rwanda very much appreciate WJC’s unflinching support” (Amitabh Desai sending mail to fellow Clinton Foundation Staffers – ‘Subject: Qatar, Brazil, Peru, Malawi, Rwanda’ 16.04.2012).

If all of this isn’t worrying, if this state of play is what can be organized through a Clinton Administration it says something about the words they pick for the society and press to read, and how they really act. That their saying something, but act differently; that is not a good state of affairs for transparency and accountability of civil servants, Clinton Foundation or any organization.

We can all question why Rwanda and President Paul Kagame we’re getting so much credibility through programs of Clinton Foundation as he is not really a gentleman. He is surrounded by military and oppressive behavior that takes total control of state and business. Is that something the Clinton’s and their Foundation wants to be affiliated with, really?

It’s enough of sadness and disgusting e-mails for one day. 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.

A look into Hillary Clinton’s Tax Returns and the revelation of a questionable LLC

Trump is usually the main man in the media; he will be a side-note as he doesn’t have the heart and drop his IRS Tax Returns. So this will be about the Tax Returns from Democratic Party Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton. She has a long past, but look into will only be as far back as 2012. Because of the Americans should they care about their candidates and double down on them; the flawed approach of both candidates if for different reasons, but Clinton got though line to walk and prove her place as POTUS. She seems more like running because she wanted this for so long, but lost out a few times before. This is her problem: Instead of sending a message to the communities and constituencies, she seems to be running because she can. Well, this article will not be about the message. Instead about the way to find the important of life: Money, Cash Money. Here we go!

The reality on the ground is that Hillary Clinton the former first lady of Bill Clinton. The 90s President who popular and vivid in office and offensive when earning ballots like “Super-predators” campaigning; well, that hasn’t backfired on Clinton. That must be because of their PR team has been amazing since leaving office. He was doing warfare with a steady force and not like the Presidents after him has not been criticized for blasting Somalia, Sudan, Jugoslavia or anywhere else Bill Clinton used US Army forces under his Presidential Terms.

Well, that isn’t what I will discuss, as the importance of money. This is quick fix to show some ways of actions done by the Presidential Candidate. That proves that the Presidential Candidate of the Democratic Party Hillary Clinton is truly acting as an Limited Liability Company. An LLC is a: “A limited liability company (LLC) is a corporate structure whereby the members of the company cannot be held personally liable for the company’s debts or liabilities. Limited liability companies are essentially hybrid entities that combine the characteristics of a corporation and a partnership or sole proprietorship. While the limited liability feature is similar to that of a corporation, the availability of flow-through taxation to the members of an LLC is a feature of partnerships” (Investopedia). So when a politician needs a corporation of the LLC to entitle their profits prove their viable ways of sophisticated business operation; sort of Panama-Papers on steroids to secure that the profits doesn’t end up in State-Coffers instead in their pockets without paying their tax.

The Clinton’s fueling speaking engagements through a LLC called ZFS Holding. That is just too juicy. Here is my quick look into the Clinton earnings of the last four years. Wonder how the last four years of Trump would be and how the Narnia Corp. also named Trump Organization is run as a viable business. Well, Trump doesn’t have the heart, be a man and drop his dossier because he cannot be scrutinized for his wealth or value; also his economical ties like the Clinton’s get. And the Clinton ties to Delaware LLC are not a grand position, even if it is profitable and legal. Still, not righteous as legislator and possible Executive of the State to run businesses who try to avoid tax. Take a look!

About the ZFS Holding LLC:

““Records indicate ZFS Holdings was incorporated in early 2013, within weeks of Hillary Clinton’s departure from the State Department. She was prohibited from making paid speeches as secretary of state” (Westwood, 2015). So the well orchestrated company framework shows the value of the speeches and earnings to the political couple as the Political Elite they are. The certainty of engagements and knowledge of the system gave them the ability to do so. What show’s more their plan is where ZFS Holding LLC headquarters “main offices” are as the Guardian reporter portrays: “The receptionist at 1209 North Orange Street isn’t surprised that a journalist has turned up unannounced on a sunny weekday afternoon” (…) “You know I can’t speak to you,” she says. A yellow post-it note on her computer screen reads “MEDIA: Chuck Miller” with the phone number of the company’s director of corporate communications” (…) “This squat, yellow brick office building just north of Wilmington’s rundown downtown is the registered address of more than 285,000 companies. That’s more than any other known address in the world, and 15 times more than the 18,000 registered in Ugland House, a five-storey building in the Cayman Islands that Barack Obama called “either the biggest building in the world, or the biggest tax scam on record” (Neate, 2016).

We can see the seasoned politician as Hillary Clinton of the Democratic Party affiliated with the what the President Barrack Obama called “biggest tax scam on record”. Why is this a worry, as the reason for the house and the registration of Bill and Hillary Clinton own Company in the building is proof of how they wanted to make sure that they could be doing Tax Avoidance from getting issues with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). All the speaking engagements and consultations of the couple has gone through the company as per filing of the IRS Tax Returns shows. That proves at what extent they fuel their income and how they uses the ZFS Holding LLC.

Basic numbers from the last four years before the Presidential Election (2012-2015):

In 2012 total income we’re $19.993.299. The Taxation we’re $5.910.304; Taxable income from the Outside of US $5.558.500. Earned on speaking engagements $16.638.152. After tax estimated $13.543.533.

In 2013 total income we’re $23.498.870. The Taxation we’re $9.597.074. Parts of the Income came from Speaking through the ZFS Holding LLC got her $9.680.000 after the taxes she earned $8.683.723. As an author this year she profited $2.752.601.

In 2014 total income we’re $28.336.212. The taxation we’re $9.981.350. The speaking engagements earned Clinton $9.730.000 and after tax she got $8.440.895. Other on the Speaking this year where under her Company ZFS Holding LLC got her $10.492.000. After tax she got $ 8.761.374.

In 2015 total income we’re $10.745.378. The taxation we’re $3.624.455. Parts of the Income came from Speaking through the ZFS Holding LLC got her $1.475.000 after the taxes she earned $1.123.243. Had also earnings on Vanguard 500 Index funds that we’re totaling $84,358; speaking engagements earned her $5.250.000.

If this wasn’t interesting I don’t know. If you wonder why I haven’t discussed the donations to charities as Politicians are specialized in doing to warm the heart and prove their care for society and vulnerable; the Clinton’s have given basically all money through their Clinton Foundation that is hectic in itself and should be look into as the histories of the CF in African Nation and connected to GMO companies are suspect in itself. Therefore I have not really looked into the funds and fueled money there. That is a big other story who deserves more than two quick cents, but a study and check the available sources and leaked documentation from the CF.

So there you have it. This is very brief as there are only the cases of the money and earnings that are big for a life-long politician and the wife of former US President. The former US President are usually able to fund their lavish lifestyle after Presidency through consultation and speeches. So the Clinton’s are not new, but more sophisticated in this regard. The amount of money says what they have earned and shows they are wealthy and part of the Elite in the United States now. Peace.

Opinion: Why is there so little sanction on Corrupt behaviour and why don’t the donors stop the funds?

corruption-1

We should question the ability of certain leaders to be able to squander away government funds, donor-funding while keeping their citizens in poverty and neglect the civil service, the state functions and keeping the state fragile; so that the Executive can brown envelope the Members of Parliament and that other civil servants to get paid, instead of government salaries depend on being paid under table for government delivery.

This is not one nation problem, this is not a one continent problem, and this is a worldwide problem. Not only government acts like this organizations, multi-lateral organizations and businesses. Corporations and other LLCs are also misusing their fortunes and ability to generate wealth for their stakeholders through intricate and complex banking structure that fixes the profits away from the countries we’re they earn high profits; while squandering away the profits so that the owners and stakeholders gain massive funds and leave the consumers, workers and the nations as they keep the funds away from the State of real business.

Tax Avoidance

Why can I address the neglect of government in the same regard as tax-avoidance in modern business, because the same ethics and norms are made and regulated by the Parliaments, Executive Power and by the interests of politicians; that needs funds and create business in their constituency as they earn currency on opening business there. So with that in mind, the way the business is set-up and regulated are by admission from the political framework and laws, not to talk about tax-regulations together with multi-lateral agreements that either opens or closes doors for tax-fugitives from the profitable country.

The Government are the Sovereign Power, the ones that represent and distribute the resources and funds to their citizens through departments, ministries, institutions and programs that are sufficient to make sure of education, security and development of the country. That happens as they can either use their taxes, aid and loans to fund the government work. Well, they could if they wanted to represent the people who paid the tax and elected them.

One key reason for the maladministration and mismanagement from the government are that they are responsible for sham elections and rigging themselves in power; worst case scenario the government and executive took the power with the gun; so the responsibility is more on the ammunition instead of the transparency and accountability towards the citizens. The citizens are supposed to have safe-guards from corrupt behaviour and alleged graft; as the Auditor General and Ombudsman are supposed see through the files and budgets, together with registered procurements, so that the actual facts are the same as the planned efforts from the State.

That is why the breaking figures and knowledge of squandered monies from the funds. Something that shouldn’t be that easy to do or get away with; as so many leaders and executives have saved giant bank-accounts in Swiss Banks and in Tax-Havens. So the humble men from villages all of sudden own 30 luxury cars, 4 mansions and have a wife who spends a ministries months salaries on exclusive clothing and shoes in Paris and London. While the taxpayer are struggling to eat and feed their families, which is an issue that shouldn’t be there when the Executive and wife can have a cortege of 25 cars driving from their State House to their Ranch without any consideration.

Obama Stockholm

The worrying sign is that the International Monetary Fund, World Bank and other Multi-lateral organizations don’t sufficiently sanction this kind of activities or even punish the countries with this behaviour; except when the nations are on their back hunting wild goose. The United Nations and European Union, other Pacts doesn’t even sanction much either. The diplomatic tensions and the wish for resources sometimes stop the knowledge of the thievery, if not to save face of both parties as they doesn’t want the public of the nation importing to know about the maladministration.

What I am wondering with all the corruption scandals, with the rich executives and the haemorrhaging of monies from the state and businesses; It happens daily while the begging for funds from international community and also getting investors from the exterior to invest in business. These businessmen are set in function with civil servant and government officials that are corrupting the state; something that the world knows… and still keeps it going around.

Certainly the knowledge of this isn’t something in the shadow, some places all of this is in the spotlight and expected by the officials, as a second way of getting add-ons on their meagre salaries as the government doesn’t pay enough or on time for the Police Officers and Teachers to secure pay to pay for food and even rent. Therefore the system generate where the Government can’t even supplement funds for their own, while their leaders eat the most delicious stakes. This should be a warning, but the world moves on.

What worries me… is how this keep on happening with different names, different places and with different funds, while the sanctions and the stopping of funding from the communities doesn’t stop; while the massive overload of stolen monies are hidden and the ability to use this banked currency in developing the state and nation, instead lost in trail of lies and deceit where the accountability got dropped in the ocean.

We should question these transactions and not accept these facts of life, this is the ones that steal the development and progress, steal foreign taxpayer’s monies into personal bank-accounts and private business of elites instead of the public functions as they we’re supposed to go.

I am just writing in frustration… and tired of seeing and hearing about the scandal after scandal… While the ones dishing it out are silent, while the punishment is not happening and the characters who are behind the thieving is walking like kings and queens in main-streets of capitals all around the world. That is what is bugging me. It shouldn’t be like this and the behaviour should be tormented, questioned and also charged for their stolen cash. This cash we’re not automatically made for and created for the Executive’s and their Elites; which isn’t justified. So why does it seem that some people are allowed to steal a country, steal a national treasury and the foreign exchange funds are walking scotch-free while hanging around the mayors and government-officials; but when a pocket-thief or a man stealing a goat, gets detained and not hired again.

The rules for this is provable not equal, not for all men are equal under god, except if you like shrimp. Well, that is not the case in this matter, there are too set of standards, the Executives and their Elites; while the citizens and public are a disgrace and can be disregarded easily, but the rich can get-a-way-jail-free-card! Peace.
