The Clinton Foundation Is Over – It proves what we’ve said all along…

While everyone’s been gearing up for President Trump’s inauguration, the Clinton Foundation made a major announcement this week that went by with almost no notice: No media coverage. Nothing! For all intents and purposes, it’s closing its doors. In a tax filing, the Clinton Global Initiative said it’s firing 22 staffers and closing its offices, a result of the gusher of foreign money that kept the foundation afloat suddenly drying up after Hillary Clinton failed to win the presidency. It proves what we’ve said all along: The Clinton Foundation was little more than an influence-peddling scheme to enrich the Clintons, and had little if anything to do with “charity,” either overseas or in the U.S. That sound you heard starting in November was checkbooks being snapped shut in offices around the world by people who had hoped their donations would buy access to the next president of the United States. And why not? There was a strong precedent for it in Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state. While serving as the nation’s top diplomat, the Clinton Foundation took money from at least seven foreign governments — a clear breach of Clinton’s pledge on taking office that there would be total separation between her duties and the foundation. Is there a smoking gun? Well, of the 154 private interests who either officially met or had scheduled phone talks with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state, at least 95 were donors to the Clinton Foundation or one of its programs. All the way back in May, we outlined how the Clinton Foundation had taken in $100 million from a collection of Gulf sheikhs and billionaires, along with millions from private businesses, who expected — and received — special access to the State Department’s top official, Hillary. In his 2015 book “Clinton Cash,” author Peter Schweizer showed how during Hillary’s years in government “the Clintons have conducted or facilitated hundreds of large transactions (either as private citizens or government officials) with foreign governments, corporations and private financiers.” He called the sums going to the Clintons “staggering.” Using the Freedom of Information Act, Judicial Watch in August obtained emails (that had been hidden from investigators) showing that Clinton’s top State Department aide, Huma Abedin, had given “special expedited access to the secretary of state” for those who gave $25,000 to $10 million to the Clinton Foundation. Many of those were facilitated by a former executive of the foundation, Doug Band,... read more

Does the Government work for us or we work for the Government? WAKE UP!

Does the Government work for us or we work for the Government? What if the Constitution no longer applied? What the whole purpose of the Constitution was to limit the Government? What if Congress’s enumerated powers in the Constitution no longer limited Congress, but were actually used as a justification to extend Congress’s authority over every realm of human life? What if the President, meant to be an equal to Congress had, instead become a democratically-elected term-limited monarch? What if the President assumed that everything he did was legal, just because he’s the President? What if he could interrupt your regularly-scheduled radio and TV programming for a special message from him?What if he could declare war on his own? What if he could read your emails and your texts without a search warrant? What if he could kill you without warning?What if the Supreme Court justices no longer looked to the Constitution to determine the Constitutionality of the law but rather simply, to what justices who preceded them thought about it? What if the rights and principles guaranteed in the Constitution had been so distorted over the past two hundred years, as to be unrecognizable by the Founders? What if the Fifty States were no longer sovereign entities, equals to each other and parents of the Federal Government they voluntarily constituted? What if the states were mere provinces of a totally nationalized and fully nationalized government? What if the Constitution was amended stealthily, not by Constitutional amendments, duly ratified by the States but by the constant and persistent expansion of the Federal Government’s role in our lives? What if the Federal Government decided if its own powers were proper and Constitutional? What if the Constitution were no longer the supreme law of the land? What if you needed a license from the Government to speak, to assemble or to protest against the Government? What if the Government didn’t like what you’d planned to say, so it didn’t give you the license? What if the right to keep and bear arms only applied to the Government? What if Posse Commitatus, the Federal Law that prohibits our military from occupying our streets were no longer in effect? What if the Government considered the military an adequate dispenser of domestic law enforcement? What if cops looked and acted like troops and you couldn’t distinguish the military from the police? What if you were not secure in your person, in your papers, in... read more

Why Are We Sending $38 Billion to Rich and Powerful Israel?

Last week’s announcement of a record-breaking US aid package for Israel underscores how dangerously foolish and out-of-touch is our interventionist foreign policy. Over the next ten years, the US taxpayer will be forced to give Israel some $38 billion dollars in military aid. It is money we cannot afford going to a country that needs no assistance to maintain its status as the most powerful military in the Middle East. All US foreign aid is immoral and counterproductive. As I have often said, it is money taken from poor people in the US and sent to rich people overseas. That is because US assistance money goes to foreign governments to hand out as they see fit. Often that assistance is stolen outright or it goes to the politically connected in the recipient country. Just as bad is the fact that much of what we call “foreign aid” is actually welfare for the wealthy here at home. The aid package to Israel is a very good example. According to the agreement, this $38 billion will all go to US weapons manufacturers. So the real beneficiaries are not the American people, and not even Israeli citizens. The real beneficiaries are the US military-industrial complex. Perhaps the money won’t even leave Washington – it may simply go across town, from the Fed to the Beltway bomb-makers. While even US government aid to desperately poor countries should be opposed on moral and practical grounds, it is even harder to understand US aid to relatively rich countries. At a nominal per capita GDP of over $35,000, Israel is richer than Japan, Italy, and South Korea. Not long ago Business Insider published a report by the Institute for the Study of War showing that the Israel is the most powerful military force in the Middle East. We know they have hundreds of nuclear weapons, a sophisticated air force, drones, and even nuclear weapons-equipped submarines. So why is the US giving a rich and incredibly well-armed country a record amount of military aid? Part of it is that the US government believes it can coerce Israel to do Washington’s bidding in the Middle East. History shows that this is a foolish pipe dream. If anything, US aid subsidizes Israeli human rights abuses in Gaza and elsewhere. Another reason is a very powerful lobby in Washington, AIPAC, that pressures Members of Congress to focus on Israel’s interests instead of US interests. Members of Congress should look at... read more

Understanding the Due Process Consequences of Entering a Plea

This bears repeating… and repeating… and repeating again…. I guess telling you that you NEVER enter a plea under ANY circumstances after you have opened your mouth and done so would be just a bit late and useless at this point, but it’s a fact nonetheless. By opening your mouth and entering a plea, you have royally screwed yourself by doing that one not-so-little thing. In the future, NEVER sign ANYTHING that is put in front of you in these cases, and NEVER enter a plea. However, that is NOT to be construed as being the same thing as REFUSING to enter a plea, because we NEVER do that either. So, let’s say you’ve been [falsely] accused of committing a “transportation” offense by some improperly informed, improperly educated, and improperly trained authoritarian statist funded robot that seized you at your liberty and held you in an unreasonable custodial arrest without a proper warrant of arrest or any articulable probable cause just so that s/he could issue you a “[un]uniform traffic citation” that you must now deal with. The citation tells you that you must appear on some future date and time before some particular magistrate presiding over some particular court named on the citation that allegedly has jurisdiction of the offense. Although, it should be clear to anyone that can read and comprehend constitutional language and principles that it is a direct violation of the separation of powers provision of Article 2 of the states Constitution and Penal Code Sec. 32.48 for a municipal or state police officer to issue an ‘order’ via a “transportation” citation that simulates a legal process such as a subpoena or summons. The basis for asserting that it’s a violation of the separation of powers and the law is that both municipal and state police officers are executive branch functionaries and agents, and the issuance of a summons or subpoena having the legal force of a full-fledged judicial order requiring an individual’s compliance is entirely a judicial branch power and function, which executive officers are constitutionally forbidden to exercise. When you eventually appear at the court named in the paperwork that accompanied the citation “on or before” the appointed date and time, as that phrase is typically printed on most of these citations, the magistrate is required by the Code of Criminal Procedure to perform the duties imposed upon him/her by Art. 15.17[5] of that code. And s/he is required to do so in... read more
