Clinton Foundation Taxes Reveal Just How Little They Give To Charity, But It Gets WORSE

Angry Patriot Movement ^ | today | Angry Patriot Movement 

Hillary did her best to rake Trump over the coals over his charities, but she is the one Americans should have been asking questions about all along.

Not only is the amount of money actually sent out minuscule, the Clinton Foundation has been lying about the care it supposedly provides to the poor in the form of prescription medicine, via ProudCons.com.

While Hillary and company claim to provide much needed drugs to third-world countries, that duty is actually handled by a separate charity, the Clinton Health Access Initiative.

But, as always, Hillary likes to twist the facts just to draw attention away from the real issues. In this case, she’s hoping you won’t notice the corrupt foundation her daughter runs.

In its IRS filings, the Clinton Foundation paid out over $91 million, but only roughly $5 million of that actually went to charitable grants! At that point, you really shouldn’t be able to call yourself a charity anymore!

Where did this money go you ask?

Well, almost $35 million went out to salaries, with Chelsea reportedly earning close to $1 million. Compare that to the salary of the CEO of the Salvation Army, who makes less than $200,000!

The rest of the money was tagged for various expenses. And yes, the math means about $50 million went out the door as “other” costs.

Trump Won, but We're Not Done!

American Thinker ^ | November 27, 2016 | Lloyd Marcus 

Among eating Turkey, passing out, and eating more turkey, plus pumpkin cheesecake (a dollop of whipped cream on top), I caught the news on TV. It seemed the lead story of every broadcast was that Trump is an uncouth, two-faced SOB. The incredulous mainstream media is going to bombard us for the next four years, spinning every news story to further the left's despicable lie that stupid racist whites elected America's version of Hitler.

The left has already begun doubling down on its efforts to demonize conservatism and block every attempt to reverse Obama's illegal far-left radical transformation of our once great nation.

Heads up, folks. Step one in the left's War Room playbook is to discourage us, to convince us that Trump is a fraud who will betray his voters. This is why we are seeing so many leftist talking heads, the N.Y. Times, and other Democrat operatives disguised as media claiming that Trump is backing away from his campaign promises. Don't fall for it, folks.

These people on the left are relentless and evil. Yes, I said evil. Most of what they stand for and desire to do is consistently anti-God, anti-America, and anti-traditional family and values. They always send the message that God's original plan and purposes are stupid. They have a much better, more sophisticated idea for the way things ought to be.
Even as I speak, Hillary's camp is still insidiously scheming to steal the presidential election from We the People in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.

‘Sanctuary California’ Faces Bankruptcy if Trump Withholds Federal Funds

Breitbart ^ | 26 Nov 2016 | Chriss W. Street 

Although Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti warned President-elect Trump that defunding Sanctuary Cities would cause “social, economic and security problems,” Sanctuary California could face bankruptcy if the Trump administration follows through on threats to pull billions in federal funding.

There are 300 “Sanctuary Cities” and counties around the United States that have policies in place blocking local law enforcement from complying with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer requests for immigration holds.

An ICE detainer is a written request for a local jail or other law enforcement agency to detain an individual for an additional 48 hours (excluding weekends and holidays) after his or her release date, in order to provide ICE agents extra time to decide whether to take the individual into federal custody for removal purposes.

"Castro’s Legacy is One of Firing Squads, Theft, Unimaginable Suffering"

Frontpage ^ | November 26, 2016 | Daniel Greenfield 

While Obama and the media mourn the dead Communist butcher, President-elect Donald J. Trump had a very different reaction.
Donald Trump condemned the late Cuban leader Fidel Castro on an otherwise quiet Saturday for the president-elect.
"The world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades," Trump said in a statement issued hours after Castro's death. "Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights."
Trump, who has pledged to roll back the Obama administration's diplomatic opening to Cuba, said the nation remains "a totalitarian island," but he hopes that Castro's passing will mark "a move away from the horrors endured for too long, and toward a future in which the wonderful Cuban people finally live in the freedom they so richly deserve."

The Snowflake Meltdown and the Forgotten Man

Artful Dilettante ^ | November 26, 2016 | Artful Dilettante 

The Democrats have a lot of fence-mending to do with a once-key constituency of their political coalition---the Forgotten Man---blue-collar voters who get up and go to work every day, obey the law, pay their taxes, and don't think responsibility is a four-letter word. The Forgotten Man has consistently been given the backhand by the party whose elites cynically and mockingly refer to them as "flyover country." It is The Forgotten Man who just handed the keys to the White House to a political neophyte who gave voice to their frustrations and connected with them as no one has since Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
The Democrats could take a huge first step in the long process of reconciliation by addressing head-on the Snowflake Meltdown, the hideous emotional collapse of millions of politically ignorant, pampered, self-indulgent youth who have thrown an infantile, nationwide hissy-fit since Election Day. The Snowflake Meltdown is the rotting corpse of Woodstock, the last gasp of 1972 takeover of the Democratic Party by their aging ideological soulmates. They embraced and promoted a value system inconsistent with objective reality, and took over the principle organs of state propaganda---that being the media and our education system. Taking control of the education system and the minds of our youth is a page right out of Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, a German import courtesy of the Frankfurt School of Marxist ideology.
The Snowflake Meltdown has taken the form of riots, sit-ins, daily walk-outs from high school and college classes with instructor approval, and massive traffic tie-ups. Obama and the Democratic leadership (in and out of office) have as yet refused to address the Snowflake Meltdown and their manifest disruptive activities. The Democratic leadership should move quickly to call out the Snowflake Movement by name and disavow their childish, disruptive activities often undertaken with the approval and encouragement of their academic mentors preying on their ignorant charges. The vast majority of working-class Americans look upon these activities with disgust and disdain. So do most students. My son, a junior at a major state university, tells us that campus Snowflakes are the subject of widespread ridicule that cuts across racial, gender, even ideological lines.
But, don't look for this to happen soon. The Snowflakes are a key part of the Coalition of Misfits that comprise the democrat coalition. The Snowflakes are also part of the farm team for tomorrow's blue-state jurists, school administrators, journalists, and lawmakers. The democrats will no more criticize campus Snowflakes than the border crossers that they hope to groom into reliable voters.
But democrats find themselves caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place. Trying to reconcile with The Forgotten Man while retaining the loyalty of their hard-left constituencies may be a bridge too far.

The Left’s Appalling Whitewashing of Castro’s Legacy

Daily Signal ^ | Nov 26 2016 | Mike Gonzalez

You will hear some people today excuse Fidel Castro’s crimes by begging that he accomplished social goals. Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn have already beclowned themselves on that front. They were merely the first.
Our own President Barack Obama opted for washing his hands, choosing to neither praise Castro after his death Friday, nor to condemn the tragedy his communist dictatorship has inflicted on the Cuban people for 57 years. “History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him,” said Obama playing Pilate.
No social accomplishment, to be sure, could justify keeping an entire people hostage, denying them the right to elect their own leaders or exercise any human rights for half a century. But there weren’t any accomplishments.
On the contrary, Castro destroyed a thriving society and imposed penury, either out of Marxist dogma or out of resentment that his out-of-wedlock birth had left him with a stigma among Cuba’s middle classes.

‘What a Pack of Losers’: Kellyanne Conway Blasts Clinton Campaign For Joining Recount

Mediaite.com ^ | 2:56 pm, November 26th, 2016 | by Justin Baragona | 

Earlier today, a lawyer for Hillary Clinton’s campaign stated that they will join in on the recount efforts initiated by Green party presidential candidate Jill Stein in Wisconsin. While Marc Elias stated in his Medium post that the campaign “had not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking,” they would take “the same approach” if Stein follows through on her promises of recounts in Pennsylvania and Michigan, along with participating in the one already scheduled in Wisconsin.
Until now, President-elect Donald Trump and his team have remained quiet about Stein’s recount efforts. However, now that the Clinton camp is jumping into the fray, that is no longer the case.
Speaking to Bloomberg, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway slammed the Clinton campaign, essentially labeling them hypocrites while calling them “sore losers.”
“What a pack of sore losers,” Conway said in a statement to Bloomberg. “After asking Mr. Trump and his team a million times on the trail, ‘Will HE accept the election results?’ it turns out Team Hillary and their new BFF Jill Stein can’t accept reality.”
“Rather than adhere to the tradition of graciously conceding and wishing the winner well, they’ve opted to waste millions of dollars and dismiss the democratic process. The people have spoken. Time to listen up. #YesYourPresident,” Conway said.
Conway was obviously referring to the concerns over Trump saying that he would leave the country in suspense on whether he’d accept the election results. He continually harped about the election system being rigged on the campaign trail.
While the margin of victory in the three states that will be recounted is relatively tight — a combined 107,000 — it is still highly unlikely that any of the three will flip on a simple recount, something Elias himself conceded in his post.
Meanwhile, Clinton national popular vote lead continues to rise. As of today, Clinton now leads by over 2.2 million votes and it appears that when it is all said and done, Hillary will win the popular vote by two points and nearly 3 million.

This has raised a number of questions over her intents with the fundraising, as initially she said she would need $2.5 million and is now claiming any unused money will go to other efforts.
