The Clinton Crime Family

Written by Stephen Lendman Date: 03-24-2015

They’re one of America’s notable crime families – Bill as president, Hillary as first lady, senator, secretary of state and now presidential aspirant.

Bill’s rap sheet includes:

eight years as Wall Street’s man in Washington – facilitating casino capitalism more than ever before;

NAFTA and the World Trade Organization – anti-democratic job and environmental-destroying coup d’etas;

compromising vitally needed welfare aid;

marketplace medicine managed competition Hillarycare – Obamacare’s precursor.

responsibility with Bush I for ethnic Rwandan massacres;

Iraq sanctions causing mass starvation, disease and 5,000 monthly Iraqi children deaths, according to former humanitarian relief coordinator Denis Halliday;

Balkan wars and raping Yugoslavia;

telecommunications deregulation facilitating unprecedented media consolidation;

repeal of Glass-Steagall; and

the Commodity Futures Modernization Act ending regulatory oversight over derivatives and leveraging;

Hillary partnered in her husband’s crimes. She shamelessly self-promoted throughout her Washington years and since leaving government.

She’s unabashedly hawkish. Earlier articles called her a war goddess. In 1999, she urged Bill to bomb Belgrade.

"What do we have NATO for if not to defend our way of life," she blustered.

Straightaway post 9/11, she urged waging war on terror. She supported Bush and Obama’s worst crimes.

She endorses nuclear weapons use. She calls them peacekeeping deterrents.

As a 2008 presidential aspirant, she told AIPAC convention participants America "stands with Israel now and forever."

"I have a bedrock commitment to Israel’s security." She repeatedly lies claiming Iran and Hamas call for Israel’s destruction.

She threatened tens of millions of Iranians. She said as president, she’d "totally obliterate them (if they) consider(ed) launching an attack on Israel…"

She wanted Gaddafi toppled. She urged genocidal war to eliminate him. She publicly gloated saying "(w)e came. We saw. He died."

She pushed for war on Syria to oust Assad. She represents the worst of America’s dark side.

She favors police state harshness, corporate empowerment and permanent was.

She deplores peace and stability. As president, she’ll likely wage greater war on humanity than Obama.

She compares Russia to Nazi Germany. She lies claiming Putin’s aims are revanchist.

Earlier she said "his mission is to restore Russian greatness. When he looks at Ukraine, he sees a place that he believes is by its very nature part of Mother Russia."

She called him "a KGB agent. By definition, he doesn’t have a soul."

"By definition," she obsessively seeks unlimited wealth and power.

In 2001, she, husband Bill and Chelsea founded the Clinton Foundation – a profit-making enterprise masquerading as an NGO.

Promoting Big Lies about "improving global health, increasing opportunity for women and girls, reducing childhood obesity and preventable diseases, (and) creating economic opportunity and growth…"

Ludicrously claiming it "keeps score by the lives that are saved or improved."

It’s an enterprise used to advance Hillary’s ambitions. The Wall Street Journaldiscussed it.

On March 19, it headlined "Clinton Charity Tapped Foreign Friends."

It "agreed not to seek donations from other governments, but (millions of dollars) kept flowing from individuals with connections to them."

A foundation disclosure explained. "Some donors have direct ties to foreign governments," said the Journal.

They include a Saudi royal family member and a corrupted Ukrainian oligarch/former Kiev parliamentarian.

"Others are individuals with close connections to foreign governments that stem from their business activities," said the Journal

Over a dozen foreign influence peddlers were large foundation donors – after Clinton became Secretary of State in 2009.

Records show they contributed up to $68 million. Some donors directly funded foundation projects valued at around $60 million.

When Clinton left State, foreign government money was accepted.

A large donation came "from a conglomerate run by a member of China’s National People’s Congress," said the Journal.

Foundation spokesman Craig Minassian fended off criticism saying:

"Like other global charities and nongovernmental organizations, the Clinton Foundation receives support from individuals all over the world because our programs are improving the lives of millions of people around the globe."

From 1999 – 2014, foreign donations by country and amount included:

Ukraine: $10 million

England: $8.4 million

Saudi Arabia: $7.3 million

Germany: $6.7 million

Ireland: $6.5 million

India: $5.0 million

Canada: $4.5 million

Argentina: $2.0 million

United Arab Emirates: $1.4 million

China: $1.3 million

Greece: $1.1 million

Nigeria: $1.0 million

Bosnia: $1.0 million

France: $0.8 million

Sri Lanka: $0.7 million

As a presidential aspirant, critics claim a potentially serious conflict of interest accepting millions of dollars from foreign governments she’d have direct dealings with if elected.

Federal law prohibits governments, corporations, individuals and groups from contributing to US political campaigns.

Funding Clinton’s foundation buys influence.

Precise amounts contributed aren’t known, said the Journal – because disclosure information excludes dates and reports dollar amounts in ranges.

"The Journal tracked donations through foundation disclosures, watchdog reports and other media accounts," it said.

From 2009 – 2013, Kiev-based Viktor Pinchuk Foundation contributed at least $8.6 million.

His wife is former Ukraine President Leonid Kuchma’s daughter. He began contributing to Clinton "charities" in 2006.

In 2008, he committed $29 million to the Clinton Global Initiative over a five-year period.

Funds were "to modernize Ukraine" – to train future Ukrainian leaders. To influence US policy. To promote coup d’etat change. Several Pinchuk alumni are Nazi parliamentarians.

Saudi Prince Turki al-Faisal made generous contributions. His chief of staff didn’t respond to Journal emails seeking information.

The Journal discussed other prominent donors – including anti-Chavez Venezuelan Venevision media mogul Gustavo Cisneros. Inquiries for more information on his donations went unanswered.

Millions donated to foundations, organizations or other initiatives run by political opportunists automatically raise red flags.

Bill and Hillary Clinton capitalized hugely on their time in office. They’re both independently wealthy.

They’re paid huge sums for public appearances, addresses, book deals and other opportunities afforded political celebrities.

Workers at biggest fast food companies need billions in public assistance

Walmart isn’t the only corporate giant relying on government assistance to make up for the low, low wages it pays its workers. According to a new report from the University of California-Berkeley Labor Center, 52 percent of front-line fast food workers are on some form of public assistance, at a cost of nearly $7 billion a year. And the 10 largest fast food companiesaccount for $3.8 billion of that, the National Employment Law Project estimates.

The UC-Berkeley study only looks at participation in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), the Earned Income Tax Credit, food stamps, and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families; if it included all government programs, such as child-care subsidies and reduced price school lunches, the total would be higher. That’s because fast food restaurants pay wages so low that even the families of full-time fast food workers rely on public programs—the median income for people working more than 10 hours a week 27 or more weeks per year in nonmanagerial fast food jobs is $8.69 an hour.

The companies benefiting from all that low-wage labor and the food stamps and health care assistance needed for workers to get by are doing just fine. Last year, the 10 largest fast food companies earned $7.44 billion in profits, paid their top executives $52.7 million, and distributed $7.7 billion in dividends and buybacks, according to NELP. Meanwhile:

Like Walmart, McDonald’s and Taco Bell and Domino’s are profiting directly off of government programs for low-income people. Taxpayers are subsidizing wages at these immensely profitable companies, while Republicans in Congress block the minimum wage increase that would raise many fast food workers out of poverty.

…Do Americans today even know what the Bill of Right are moreover do they even care…?

For U.S. citizens accused of crimes, certain legal protections are supposed to be sacrosanct: the right to remain silent, access to an attorney. But over the last six months, reports by The Guardian and Firedoglake have highlighted a culture of abuse in the Chicago Police Department. In this video, the Guardian reports on a nondescript warehouse facility in the west end of the city, where detainees like anti-war protesters, ultimately acquitted of terrorism charges, said they did not enjoy legal protections that the police department’s guidelines promise. Parallel reporting by Firedoglake from months earlier suggests that similar detours from traditional standards for pre-trial confinement are arriving at U.S. shores from the legal Bermuda

Triangle that is the Guantanamo Bay detention facility.

Patented Life: Sharing Gardening Seeds Illegal in 30% Of US States

It is time for some outdated, unconstitutional laws to be scrapped. Informally sharing seed with a neighbor who gardens down the street is illegal in multiple states in the US. The penalty for violating this ridiculous law is a fine of up to $7,500 a day. Like so many other senseless laws, this rule needs to be put to rest.

You can’t even give away seeds to someone in your own neighborhood under certain laws. For example, in some states you need to buy an annual permit and submit each lot of seeds for germination testing; if you don’t, you are defying the law.

If this smacks of corporate farming infiltration to you, you aren’t alone. just 6 companies in the world have patented most of the seeds grown in the entire global agricultural market. Our food diversity is crumbling and it’s largely because corporations, not people, are in charge of the supply.

Neil Thapar, an attorney for the Sustainable Economics Law Center, has reviewed laws like these in 30 states so far and found that many of them define seed sharing without a permit as an illegal act.

People have been saving and sharing seeds for millennia. It isn’t just our grandparents and great-grandparents who saved and exchanged seed – it has been practiced among farmers and gardeners since we first became an agrarian society. …  Read Full Story

From liability to opportunity: How to build food security and nourish growth

How can public institutions, development agencies, investors, researchers, and producers work together to build a food sector that propels economic growth, meets demand, and helps to maintain social stability?

 

March 2015 | byNicolas Denis, David Fiocco, and Jeremy Oppenheim    By 2050, the world will need to feed more than nine billion people, requiring nearly 70 percent more food than we consume today.1 Moreover, an expanding global middle class will demand more meat and other protein-rich foods, while extreme weather could slash yields in important agricultural regions. At the same time, prices of wheat, rice, and a number of other basic food commodities have been rising for a decade (Exhibit 1). Volatile food prices have repeatedly led to instability—and as the exhibit shows, the volatility continues to increase.
