Clinton Corruption: Lather, Rinse, Repeat

Ever heard about millions Bill raked in while Hillary doled out favors?

Robin Smith · Jun. 13, 2016

Betrayal of the American public is not limited to elected officials and institutions of government and public service. The blatant, unashamed protection of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama from public scrutiny, as compared to their equals on the Republican side of the aisle, validates the warranted label of today’s national media as presstitutes.

Ever heard about the $16.5 million Bill Clinton raked in from 2010 to 2014 while on the payroll of a scam of an online school that later received $55 million from the U.S. State Department while Hillary served as secretary of state?

Why, no! The focus has been directed only toward Trump University that has disgruntled students filing a legal suit for apparent false claims of services promised but not delivered. While Donald Trump and his enterprise needs to answer to those unsatisfied customers who enrolled in the real estate magnate’s online offerings, Trump University has neither received money from the U.S. government nor contributions clearly tied to a quid pro quo for another effort or cause. Yet the Clintons’ standard operating procedure of pay-to-play is not “news” to the Leftmedia, despite the clear involvement of your money in the form of tax dollars.

The corruption follows the formula the Clintons have used over and over: Award some phony title and a huge paycheck to a Clinton, then Hillary follows up with sweeteners from the government ranging from grants to access, or both.

Laureate Education, parent company to online study programs like Walden University, named the former president as an honorary chancellor for four years — while he received a nice, plump multi-million-dollar windfall. While Bubba was pitchman, incoming revenue to his Laureate International Universities exploded with grants from both the U.S. State Department and USAID.

Last year, Bloomberg reviewed the public filings of the online business, which documented that in 2009, the year before Bill Clinton joined Laureate, 11 grants totaling $9 million from the State Department or the affiliated USAID were awarded. Once the former president was on the payroll, in 2010, the group received 14 grants worth $15.1 million, increasing to 13 grants adding up to $14.6 million in 2011. The following year, 21 grants worth $25.5 million, including a direct grant from the State Department. But the Leftmedia refuses to connect any dots because it was certainly a coincidence that Hillary Clinton occupied the post of secretary of state from 2009 through 2013.

The picture gets even clearer as the founder and chairman of Laureate is identified with direct ties to the Clinton Global Initiative. Douglas Becker, Chairman of Laureate, hired Bill Clinton as an honorary chancellor. Suddenly, $55 million in funding from Hillary’s State Department is funneled to the online study business. The loop is closed as contributions up to $5 million have been reported to the Clinton Foundation.

And, no, this is no isolated incident. Last week, Raj Fernando, a Chicago-based stock trader with no experience in national security, was appointed to the State Department’s intelligence board while Hillary was working her email server out of a bathroom closet in the Clinton Chappaqua home. You see, Fernando’s lack of national security expertise was easily replaced by his status as a campaign contribution bundler in 2008 and his contributions of up to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation.

But Bill Clinton’s set up lasted a lot longer than Raj’s. After only a month, State Department officials were squirming with no ability to justify a stock trader’s top security clearance merely for being Hillary’s political pal.

The Clinton Spin Cycle of Corruption is as basic as lather, rinse, repeat. The American public gets soaked while the compliant presstitutes hang the political Right out to dry.
