3 reasons the latest Clinton Foundation investigation will result in convictions

Here we go again. The FBI is investigating the Clinton Foundation to determine if “donations” were used to influence then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by lining the Clintons’ pockets through “speaking fees,” among other crimes. This time, things are going to be different.

First, the brief background:

Clinton Foundation under investigation again

http://noqreport.com/2018/01/05/clinton-foundation-investigation/The FBI has launched a fresh investigation into the activities of the Clinton Foundation, particularly during the time when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. They want to know if she was influenced by contributions made to her charitable fund in a way that allowed donors to manipulate policy influenced by the State Department or other spheres of influence.

Little Rock’s FBI agents are leading the investigation. The Clinton Foundation was started in Little Rock in 1997.

Teflon-coated may be the best way to describe the Clintons who have allegedly participated in multiple major criminal activities for decades, yet nothing has ever stuck. That leads us to the first of three reasons the DOJ is going to convict someone at the Clinton Foundation based upon this investigation…

Something has to stick eventually

When you’ve been engaged in criminal activities for as long as the Clintons have allegedly been, you learn to sidestep most of the landmines. Most. As they demonstrated with the email server debacle, they aren’t flawless.

The other thing successful criminal activities breeds is complacency. When you keep getting away with things, you get comfortable. They’ve maintained their discipline through the decades, but the Clinton Foundation is not the Arkansas or U.S. government. There are paper trails with many people involved. Trying to keep it airtight is a futile effort. Their best hope was for either someone like James Comey to run cover for them indefinitely. Their second best hope was the spin machine the DNC and mainstream media offers. Comey is gone and the DOJ is now under a Republican President, which means they can now offer…

Fodder for the masses

Many, particularly Clinton-hating Republicans, have grown antsy over the years. They’ve been promised over and over again that the Clintons would eventually get what’s coming to them, but eventually is seeming like never as the Clintons are now in their 70s.

This is just the ticket to quench their appetite. It won’t make it all the way up to the top; Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea are safe. However, there will be more corruption exposed that will lead to an outcry for justice. While Clinton-haters won’t be given the big prize, they’ll get the consolation prize of seeing one or more people high up in the Clinton organization arrested, tried, and convicted. The small amount of time that person or those persons end up serving in jail is likely going to infuriate people, but at least there was a conviction, right?

They are almost certainly guilty

Let’s not bypass the obvious. Based upon what’s publicly known about the way the Clinton Foundation operated, one could make a very strong case. Add to that whatever they discover in the investigation and we’ll have someone to make that strong case against.

Even the Clintons cannot get away with the perception of favors being sold out of the State Department, particularly with Uranium One having such a strong footprint all over the Clinton Foundation’s books.

Will we see any of the Clintons in jail any time soon? Probably not. Will someone close to them get thrown to the wolves? For once, it’s finally likely. Justice may not get fully served, but at least we’ll get to taste the appetizers and maybe even a salad.

    Seems like ALL politicians and public personalities from NYC (Where the Clintons have taken up their post-WH residence) are dirty, sleazy, smarmy and corrupt.

    Schumer, Barney Franks, Weiner, Huma, Clintons, Trump, all Major Media with HQ & primary studios in NYC, DeBlasio, Bloomberg – the list just goes on and on….

    Maybe it’s something in the water supply….

    The fact that so many denizens of NYC get away with their corruption, scams and sleaze (and are vouched for by the rest of the NYC denizens just shows the massive collusion and / epidemic of poor judgement and anti-American sentiment that is flooding from that town into Wash DC.

    We need to start electing politicians to office that do NOT come from NYC with NYC values. We also need to start upporting new media that is NOT based in NYC (thus promoting and projecting their NYC values through the bias of their reporting.

    The thing about this kind of corruption is that nothing need be communicated between the donor and the corrupt official. The donation itself is the communication. So let’s say you are an entity that has business before the State Department. You make a big contribution to the Clinton Foundation, and/or pay Bill or Hillary big bucks for a speech. The entities that have been discussed are very large organizations, and can afford to put out some cash without any commitment from the corrupt official. It’s just spreading around some money to the people that you hope will decide in your favor in the matter that is before the government agency (in this case the State Department). You might do something to make sure that Hillary is aware of the donation, but that can easily be done without any incriminating communication. Then you just wait. Hillary sees the donation, and if she is corrupt she may let it affect her decision. If she decides in favor of big donors very often, then others see it and decide it may be worth a try. But NOTHING need ever be said or communicated in any way. There need not even be a “wink and a nod”.

    So I would be inclined to think there may not be any evidence to find. Even if the Clintons are as corrupt as they somtimes appear to be, there may be no evidence, and that may go for lesser targets of the investigation as well.

Don’t let the Democrats off the hook for their shutdown

Dont let the Democrats off the hook for their shutdown

Now that the government shutdown is ending after three days, most of America wants to move on. We should, of course, but we shouldn’t allow the idiocy and hypocrisy of this shutdown to fade with the news cycle. Conservatives and Federalists should hold onto the debacle the Democrats forced and remind people in this election year of one important fact:

Democrats willfully hurt American citizens to gain favor with illegal immigrants and their proponents.

This shutdown was a feint. It had the sole intention of pretending that they’re the party that is fighting for Dreamers. That narrative was on the verge of shifting as most Republicans and the President have signaled they will protect Dreamers through proper legislation. The amnesty they will be passing in February or early March will give as many as 3.2 million Dreamers more protections than they had under President Obama’s executive order.

That’s a narrative the Democrats wanted to steal back from the GOP. That’s why they shutdown the government.

While I don’t support Republicans and their push to strengthen DACA, I definitely oppose Democrats and their desire to flood the country with as many left-leaning voters as possible. Until we can build an alternative to the lesser-of-two-evils system America currently has, we should pick our sides on issues based upon what is best for the nation.

The messaging of the Democrats’ actions should be reiterated regularly going forward and heavily when election season ramps up. The sad part is their actions haven’t helped Dreamers or increased the probability of a legislative DACA fix. All they did was put their stamp on it so they can take more credit with an uninformed electorate.

Remember the Democrats’ lies:

Schumer’s Democrats are using a pile of myths to support his shutdown

http://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/370089-schumers-democrats-are-using-a-pile-of-myths-to-support-his-shutdownShutdown fever has officially hit Washington. As Congress struggles to come to an agreement to get the government back to work, Capitol Hill is awash in indignant finger pointing, Twitter posturing and shutdown drink specials for furloughed employees.

Amidst all the breathless reporting and hyperbole, what’s real and what’s fake news is getting harder to distinguish. Here’s a look at what’s actually happening.

California’s Marxist Assemblymen McCarty & Ting

Published

on

On Thursday, January 18, 2018, California Democratic Assemblymen Kevin McCarty of Sacramento and Phil Ting of San Francisco announced due to Republicans cutting the corporate tax rate from 35 to 21 percent, or a 14 percent decrease, that it only seemed reasonable to raise the corporate tax rate in California because these corporations, according to McCarty, can now afford to give some of the money back to Californians who need the help.

According to the Sacramento Bee:

The proposal from McCarty and Ting creates a new tax for businesses in California, which already has a state corporate tax rate of 8.84 percent. Companies with annual net income of more than $1 million in California would pay an additional surcharge of 7 percent, or half their savings from the recent federal tax cut.

So California based corporations like Apple will be hit with a 7 percent state tax increase. This announcement comes on the heels of Apple’s announcement that over the next five years they will contribute over $350 billion to the US economy and create thousands of jobs. They will also repatriate billions of dollars to invest in the US due to the new tax plan.

So if logic serves me well, it seems that Apple wanting to invest in places like California where it is based and presumably hire thousands of Californians with high-wage jobs is a good thing because it would expand the tax base and remove people for social services.

Unfortunately, these assemblymen think they know how best to spend Apple’s money than Apple, which is one of the world’s largest and most profitable corporations.

So when Apple issues a press release on the 17th of January, stating that due to the tax cut, they are accelerating their investment and job creation in the US, in turn, these assemblymen come out the following day with a proposed tax increase on Apple.

And people wonder why I’m running to be California’s next chief financial officer and State Controller and how I ever came up with the idea of Trickle-up-Taxation; a plan that strips power and most taxing authority away from the hands of Sacramento politicians and brings those decisions closer to home.

The policies coming out of Sacramento are not just void of any semblance or modicum of a basic understanding of economics. What is coming out of Sacramento is Marxism.

Marxism in Action

That is correct; you heard me right, what these Assemblymen are proposing is Marxism.

They understand that these corporations (bourgeoisie) are the engine that currently creates wealth, but through their legislative actions, they criticize these corporations, even if they are progressively run corporations like Apple, as morally bankrupt because even Apple ignores and alienates workers/customers (proletariat).

Remember, to the progressive Marxist, corporations are inherently evil, even when progressives run them (e.g., Apple) because it is the nature of capitalism to exploit the worker. Thus, only government is truly good and can bring harmony and equality to society.

Therefore, it is up to them (the government/ruling class) to take corporation’s (bourgeoisie) wealth (e.g., high corporate tax rates) and redistribute it (e.g., social services) to the common people (proletariat).

These assemblymen will not come out and state they are Marxist, and they might not even think they are but have no doubt, these assemblymen and the policies coming out of the California Democratic Party are rooted in Marxist ideology and economic theory.

New Tax Plan – New Reality

California has been shielded from its bad economic policies because California is one of the most desirable places to live in the world and before this new tax plan, it was shielded from higher federal taxes.

That is right, before this new tax plan, California could get away with higher taxes because they knew that if they taxed you more, it just meant you would be taxed less federally. You’re paying those tax dollars regardless. You’re not keeping that as extra money. You’re either paying it to Sacramento or D.C.

So now with a limit on state and local tax deductions (SALT), you better change your Marxist ways Sacramento, or you’ll start seeing companies like Apple and those millionaires and billionaires that California depends on might just be packing up and moving out of state.

Your attempt to create an artificial 100 percent SALT deduction as proposed by State Senate Majority Leader Kevin de León, to protect these millionaires and billionaires from higher taxes will not work.

The new tax plan was a game changer and the cop-out that we’re the sixth largest economy in the world, and somehow we are too big to fail (e.g., Soviet Union, Venezuela), won’t pass muster.

We need a new direction, and new leadership in Sacramento and I hope to help lead the way as California’s next CFO and State Controller.

DOJ to retry Menendez

DOJ to retry Menendez

Senator Bob Menendez had hopes his day in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons was over after a jury failed to reach a verdict in his federal corruption case late last year. Those days away from the spotlight may soon be over for the Democrat as the Department of Justice announced their intentions to retry him and his co-defendant Salomon Melgen.

Feds intend to retry Menendez and Melgen ‘at the earliest possible date’

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/01/19/bob-menendez-retrial-justice-department-350904“The United States files this notice of intent to retry the defendants and requests that the Court set the case for retrial at the earliest possible date,” reads the one-paragraph notice signed by AnnaLou Tirol, acting chief of the department’s public integrity section. “Defendants Robert Menendez and Salomon Melgen have been indicted for bribery and corruption by two separate grand juries properly impaneled in the District of New Jersey. The first trial ended in a mistrial with a deadlocked jury. An early retrial date is in the best interests of the public, and the United States is available to schedule a retrial at the Court’s earliest convenience.”

My Take

I’m no lawyer, but the evidence against Menendez is pretty clear cut. An unfavorable jury and bungling by prosecutors made it hard for the jury to reach a verdict while mainstream media essentially ignored the story until the verdict. I hope to see justice served.
