America, We Pay Way Too Much For the United Nations!

Fox News ^ | June 16, 2015 | Brett Schaefer 

Each year the United States gives approximately $8 billion in mandatory payments and voluntary contributions to the United Nations and its affiliated organizations. The biggest portion of this money – about $3 billion this year – goes to the U.N.’s regular and peacekeeping budgets.
If that seems like a lot, it is—far more than anyone else pays And it’s also, in some cases, bad value for money.
The U.N. system for calculating member nations’ “fair share” payment toward its regular and peacekeeping budgets has increasingly shifted the burden away from the vast majority of the 193 members and onto a relative handful of high-income nations, especially the U.S. Indeed some nations pay next to nothing

Hillary an unethical, dishonest lawyer, a liar and conspirator says Watergate committee counsel

Coach Is Right ^ | 6/21/2015 | Suzanne Eovoldi 

Circulating throughout Conservative sites this week is information about Hillary being fired by her Watergate supervisor, US HOUSE Judiciary Watergate committee counsel Jerry Zeifman. A close analysis of this bold assertion puts the whole flap into real perspective. When asked in an interview why he terminated Hillary’s employment, Zeifman responded, “Because she was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer; she conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the HOUSE, the rules of the committee and the rules on confidentiality.” A Rush Limbaugh transcript stays very close to this syntax. In an article written after a 2008 campaign appearance by candidate Hillary Clinton in Connecticut, Zeifman admitted his regret “…that, when I terminated her employment on the Nixon impeachment staff, I had not reported her unethical practices to the appropriate bar associations.”
But “Zeifman did not fire Clinton and did not have the power to do so,” claims the far left mediamatters.com. Retired Conservative radio talk host Neal Boortz did an interview with Zeifman on or about the time of the Rush Limbaugh April, 2008 program, and the Boortz transcript appears to be more precise. When Boortz asked Zeifman, “You fired her, didn’t you?,” the HOUSE investigator said, “Well, let me put it this way, I terminated her, along with some other staff members who were–we no longer needed and advised her that I would not–could not recommend her for any further positions.” Then Boortz asks him, “Why not?” “BECAUSE OF HER UNETHICAL CONDUCT,” (emphasis added) Zeifman told Boortz’ along with a nationwide listening audience! (pg. 5 of Boortz transcript)
Boortz: “How do you feel about her candidacy for president of the United States right now?” Zeifman: “Well, I think that for any intellectually honest Democrat, her–it would be a moral imperative to vote against her.” Boortz: “Because of her lack of ethics when she was working for you?” Zeifman: “Well, no. Frankly I had hoped when she eventually became first lady, I had hoped that we had taught her a lesson. And I had voted for Bill Clinton, knowing that he was advocating a two-for-one presidency.”
The Limbaugh interview explained how “Hillary proceeded to write a legal brief arguing there was no precedent for the right to representation by counsel (for Nixon) during an impeachment proceeding. But in fact, there was. William O. Douglas was granted legal counsel at his Supreme Court impeachment trial, his legal right.”
In order to support her claim, Hillary simply removed the Douglas files to her office which at the time was secure and not accessible to the public or evidently to the US HOUSE hearings! “SHE JUST STOLE THE DOCUMENTS, (emph. added) then wrote a fraudulent brief and she tried to hide the evidence.”
Hello, does anyone recall how the Rose Law Firm documents concerning the Clintons’ AK land purchases just sprouted legs and walked off stage? Is anyone paying attention to Hillary’s E-mail server scandal while she was Secretary of State?
After all is said and done, this week’s cyberspace zip-around of Hillary’s performance as a 27 year old staff attorney at the Nixon Watergate impeachment hearings certainly has cache many years later. Apparently she can still pick up protected information and do her magician’s trick with it. In reference to Hillary and the Douglas files, Zeifman told Boortz: “Yes, she removed them. And she brought them to her office which was in another building and it was secured; it was not accessible to the public. In retrospect, SHE WAS CORRUPTED, (emph.added) and I think that was a tragedy,” said Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat.
Whether she stashes information owed the American people in her private offices or on a private computer system, can we trust Hillary Clinton with WHITE HOUSE documents? Zeifman’s statement that “it would be a moral imperative to vote against her,” is still good advice for American voters!
