There were three very bad revelations this week that could very well torpedo Hillary and Bill’s chances to get their slimy presence back into the White House.
- Weinergate. Believe it or not, the FBI has just re-opened the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server for government business. Apparently, what prompted this is information they gleaned from the devices of Huma Abedin and her husband Anthony Weiner. Huma is Hillary’s closest confidante (who also happens to have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, has published anti-American articles, and who’s mother edited a pro-Islamist magazine). Huma’s husband, the infamous Anthony Weiner, is the disgusting pervert who has been caught sending pictures of his anatomy electronically multiple times, the latest of which involved a 15-year old girl. The speculation is that emails from Huma wound up on the computer used by Weiner. No security problem there right? For the FBI to re-open the investigation at this juncture, they must have something very serious. James Comey has been rightly criticized for not indicting Hillary to begin with, despite the mountain of evidence showing she broke the law, so whatever prompted this has to be serious enough that it forced his hand. It’s very likely that he fears the rank and file in the FBI (who were furious over his previous decision) will revolt and disclose it anyway. It could be there is evidence that Abedin violated the law regarding classified material, or it could even be more serious, given her and her family’s many ties to anti-American Islamist groups. Whatever it is, this is a bombshell that makes Mrs. Clinton the first presidential candidate in history to go into an election under criminal investigation.
- The Obamacare Death Spiral Continues. This week the government announce that Obamacare rates will rise 25% in 2017. If they are saying 25% you know it will be far higher. It’s worth remembering that Obama and the Democrats forced this disaster through Congress even though the majority of Americans opposed it. As part of his pitch, Obama dishonestly claimed that this massive government takeover would somehow lower health care costs by $2500 per family. Remember this?
Many unthinking Americans went along with the propaganda.Despite Obama’s promises, the actual results of this government interference are that the average family has already seen premium increases of over $4,000 per year along with higher deductibles and reduced coverage. And of course, as a bonus we also get to pay more taxes in order to subsidize the millions of people who signed up for Obamacare but can’t afford to pay the full premiums. This is another trillion dollars in taxes so far and that will keep rising.
- “Bill Clinton Inc” and the corruption of Hillary’s State Department revealed in depth. The latest batch of Wikileaks emails involving Bill Clinton’s aide Doug Band provide evidence of the incredible nexus of corruption that was Hillary, Bill, The State Department, and the Clinton Foundation.There is far too much to detail here, but be sure to check out this article by Andrew McCarthy at National Review. He lays it all bare and shows it for what it is: the epitome of pull peddling, also know as raw political bribery and corruption.
Mrs. Clinton appears to have converted the office of secretary of state into a racketeering enterprise. This would be a violation of the RICO law — the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act of 1971 (codified in the U.S. penal code at sections 1961 et seq.).
Hillary and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, operated the Clinton Foundation. Ostensibly a charity, the foundation was a de facto fraud scheme to monetize Hillary’s power as secretary of state (among other aspects of the Clintons’ political influence). The scheme involved (a) the exchange of political favors, access, and influence for millions of dollars in donations; (b) the circumvention of campaign-finance laws that prohibit political donations by foreign sources; (c) a vehicle for Mrs. Clinton to shield her State Department e-mail communications from public and congressional scrutiny while she and her husband exploited the fundraising potential of her position; and (d) a means for Clinton insiders to receive private-sector compensation and explore lucrative employment opportunities while drawing taxpayer-funded government salaries.
While the foundation did perform some charitable work, this camouflaged the fact that contributions were substantially diverted to pay lavish salaries and underwrite luxury travel for Clinton insiders. Contributions skyrocketed to $126 million in 2009, the year Mrs. Clinton arrived at Foggy Bottom. Breathtaking sums were “donated” by high-rollers and foreign governments that had crucial business before the State Department. Along with those staggering donations came a spike in speaking opportunities and fees for Bill Clinton. Of course, disproportionate payments and gifts to a spouse are common ways of bribing public officials — which is why, for example, high-ranking government officeholders must reveal their spouses’ income and other asset information on their financial-disclosure forms.
