From Donald Trump’s press release

10-facts-about-Clinton-Foundation1. There Are Major Overlaps Between Clinton’s Campaign Donors And Her Foundation Donors, Raising Ethical Red Flags.

According To The Washington Post, Nearly Half Of The Major Donors To Ready For Hillary And Nearly Half Of Her 2008 Campaign Bundlers Have Given At Least $10,000 To The Foundation.

“Nearly half of the major donors who are backing Ready for Hillary, a group promoting her 2016 presidential bid, as well as nearly half of the bundlers from her 2008 campaign, have given at least $10,000 to the foundation, either on their own or through foundations or companies they run.” — Rosalind S. Helderman, Tom Hamburger and Steven Rich, “Clintons’ Foundation Has Raised Nearly $2 Billion — And Some Key Questions,” The Washington Post, 2/18/15

“The Clintons Have Relied Heavily On Their Close Ties To Wall Street, With Donations From The Financial Services Sector Representing The Largest Share Of Corporate Donors.” — Rosalind S. Helderman, Tom Hamburger and Steven Rich, “Clintons’ Foundation Has Raised Nearly $2 Billion — And Some Key Questions,” The The Washington Post, 2/18/15

The Foundation “Has Given Contributors Entree, Outside The Traditional Political Arena, To A Possible President.” “The financial success of the foundation, which funds charitable work around the world, underscores the highly unusual nature of another Clinton candidacy. The organization has given contributors entree, outside the traditional political arena, to a possible president. Foreign donors and countries that are likely to have interests before a potential Clinton administration — and yet are ineligible to give to U.S. political campaigns — have affirmed their support for the family’s work through the charitable giving.” — Rosalind S. Helderman, Tom Hamburger and Steven Rich, “Clintons’ Foundation Has Raised Nearly $2 Billion — And Some Key Questions,” The Washington Post, 2/18/15

The Washington Post’s Review Of The Foundation’s Seven Biggest Donors Found “That There Is Strong Overlap Between The Family’s Political Base And The Foundation,” And That A Substantial Number Of Its Donors Are Based Outside Of The U.S. “The review found that there is strong overlap between the family’s political base and the foundation and that a substantial number of the foundation’s largest donors — those who have given at least $1 million — are based outside of the United States. Financial institutions also make up the largest portion of the foundation’s corporate giving.” — Rosalind S. Helderman, “Here Are The Seven Biggest Donors To The Bill, Hillary And Chelsea Clinton Foundation,” The Washington Post, 2/18/15

Bill Allison Of The Sunlight Foundation: “The Clinton Foundation Is A Unique Non-Profit That Can’t Be Separated From The American Political System.” “Bill Allison, senior policy analyst at the Sunlight Foundation, a campaign finance watchdog group, says the Clinton foundation is a unique non-profit that can’t be separated from the US political system. ‘If there is foreign money coming into the Clinton Foundation, it will raise the question of – is the president going to be doing favors for a foreign business, a foreign government, a foreign individual? And you just cannot have that in the American system of government, where the president is supposed to represent the American people,’ Allison said.” — Julianna Goldman, “Chinese Company Pledged $2 Million To Clinton Foundation In 2013,” CBS News, 3/16/15

2. Several Major Clinton Foundation Donations Came From Companies Lobbying The Federal Government.

Corporate-donors-to-Clinton-FoundationAs Secretary Of State Clinton “Was One Of The Most Aggressive Global Cheerleaders For American Companies…” “Among recent secretaries of state, Hillary Clinton was one of the most aggressive global cheerleaders for American companies, pushing governments to sign deals and change policies to the advantage of corporate giants such as General Electric Co., Exxon Mobil Corp., Microsoft Corp. and Boeing Co.” — James V. Grimaldi and Rebecca Ballhaus, “Hillary Clinton’s Complex Corporate Ties,” The Wall Street Journal, 2/19/15

“At The Same Time, Those Companies Were Among The Many That Gave To The Clinton Family’s Global Foundation…” “At the same time, those companies were among the many that gave to the Clinton family’s global foundation set up by her husband, former President Bill Clinton.” — James V. Grimaldi and Rebecca Ballhaus, “Hillary Clinton’s Complex Corporate Ties,” The Wall Street Journal, 2/19/15

“At Least 60 Companies That Lobbied The State Department During Her Tenure Donated A Total Of More Than $26 Million To The Clinton Foundation…” “At least 60 companies that lobbied the State Department during her tenure donated a total of more than $26 million to the Clinton Foundation, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of public and foundation disclosures.” — James V. Grimaldi and Rebecca Ballhaus, “Hillary Clinton’s Complex Corporate Ties,” The Wall Street Journal, 2/19/15

“At Least 44 Of Those 60 Companies Also Participated In Philanthropic Projects Valued At $3.2 Billion That Were Set Up Though A Wing Of The Foundation Called The Clinton Global Initiative…” “At least 44 of those 60 companies also participated in philanthropic projects valued at $3.2 billion that were set up though a wing of the foundation called the Clinton Global Initiative, which coordinates the projects but receives no cash for them.” — James V. Grimaldi and Rebecca Ballhaus, “Hillary Clinton’s Complex Corporate Ties,” The Wall Street Journal, 2/19/15

“As Secretary Of State, She Created 15 Public-Private Partnerships Coordinated By The State Department, And At Least 25 Companies Contributed To Those Partnerships.” (James V. Grimaldi and Rebecca Ballhaus, “Hillary Clinton’s Complex Corporate Ties,” The Wall Street Journal, 2/19/15)

Clinton “Has A Web Of Connections To Big Corporations Unique In American Politics—Ties Forged Both As Secretary Of State And By Her Family’s Charitable Interests.” “As Mrs. Clinton prepares to embark on a race for the presidency, she has a web of connections to big corporations unique in American politics—ties forged both as secretary of state and by her family’s charitable interests.” — James V. Grimaldi and Rebecca Ballhaus, “Hillary Clinton’s Complex Corporate Ties,” The Wall Street Journal, 2/19/15

“Those Relationships Are Emerging As An Issue For Mrs. Clinton’s Expected Presidential Campaign As Income Disparity And Other Populist Themes Gain Early Attention.” — James V. Grimaldi and Rebecca Ballhaus, “Hillary Clinton’s Complex Corporate Ties,” The Wall Street Journal, 2/19/15

3. The Clinton Foundation Accepted Millions From Foreign Governments.

“Rarely, if ever, has a potential commander in chief been so closely associated with an organization that has solicited financial support from foreign governments. Clinton formally joined the foundation in 2013 after leaving the State Department, and the organization was renamed the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.” — Rosalind S. Helderman and Tom Hamburger, “Foreign Governments Gave Millions To Foundation While Clinton Was At State Dept.,” The Washington Post, 2/25/15

4. The Clinton Foundation Accepted Millions From Other Foreign Sources While Clinton Served As Secretary Of State.

Foreign Country Donations To The Clinton Foundation“More Than 40 Percent Of The Top Donors To The Clinton Foundation Are Based In Foreign Countries.”

“More than 40 percent of the top donors to the Clinton Foundation are based in foreign countries, according to an analysis by McClatchy.” — Anita Kumar, “Clinton Foundation Limits Foreign Donations,” McClatchy, 4/15/15

According To The Wall Street Journal, While The Clinton Foundation “Swore Off Donations From Foreign Governments,” It Was Still Raising Millions From “Foreigners” With Connections To Their Home Governments.

“The Clinton Foundation swore off donations from foreign governments when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. That didn’t stop the foundation from raising millions of dollars from foreigners with connections to their home governments, a review of foundation disclosures shows.” — James Grimaldi and Rebecca Ballhaus, “Clinton Charity Tapped Foreign Friends,” The Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15

While Bill Clinton Promised The Obama Administration To Stop Accepting Money From Foreign Governments, The Agreement Did Not “Place Limits On Donations From Foreign Individuals Or Corporations.”

“Former President Bill Clinton promised the Obama administration the foundation wouldn’t accept most foreign-government donations while his wife was secretary of state. The agreement didn’t place limits on donations from foreign individuals or corporations.” — James Grimaldi and Rebecca Ballhaus, “Clinton Charity Tapped Foreign Friends,” The Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15

The Donors Have Personal, Familial, And Business Ties To Foreign Governments.

“Some donors have direct ties to foreign governments. One is a member of the Saudi royal family. Another is a Ukrainian oligarch and former parliamentarian. Others are individuals with close connections to foreign governments that stem from their business activities. Their professed policy interests range from human rights to U.S.-Cuba relations.” — James Grimaldi and Rebecca Ballhaus, “Clinton Charity Tapped Foreign Friends,” The Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15

During Clinton’s Tenure At The State Department, Foreign Donors And Their Organizations Accounted For Between $34 And $68 Million In Donations And $60 Million In Commitments To The Foundation.

“All told, more than a dozen foreign individuals and their foundations and companies were large donors to the Clinton Foundation in the years after Mrs. Clinton became secretary of state in 2009, collectively giving between $34 million and $68 million, foundation records show. Some donors also provided funding directly to charitable projects sponsored by the foundation, valued by the organization at $60 million.” — James Grimaldi and Rebecca Ballhaus, “Clinton Charity Tapped Foreign Friends,” The Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15

5. Last Week The Clinton Foundation Announced They Wouldn’t Take Foreign Or Corporate Money If Clinton Is Elected, But Other Charities Still Will Be Allowed To.

Last Week Bill Clinton Said The Clinton Foundation “Would Only Accept Contributions From U.S. Citizens And Independent Charities” If Hillary Clinton Is Elected President.

“The Clinton Foundation will no longer accept foreign and corporate donations if Hillary Clinton is elected president. … Bill Clinton said if Hillary Clinton wins the White House, the family’s foundation would only accept contributions from U.S. citizens and independent charities.” (Ken Thomas, “Clinton’s Foundation To Alter Donations Policy If Elected,” The Associated Press, 8/18/16

Other Clinton Charities Will Continue To Take Foreign And Corporate Donations Should Clinton Become President.

“Big chunks of the Clinton family’s charitable network would be exempt from a self-imposed ban on foreign and corporate donations if Hillary Clinton wins the presidency, loopholes that highlight the complexity of disentangling her from the former first family’s myriad potential conflicts of interest.” — Annie Linskey, “Not All Clinton Charities Bound By New Set Of Rules,” Boston Globe, 8/20/16

These Charities Include The Clinton Health Access Initiative, The Alliance For A Healthier Generation And The Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership.

“The most prominent of the exceptions applies to the Boston-based Clinton Health Access Initiative, which in 2014 accounted for 66 percent of spending by the Clinton network of charities. … They include the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, an entity cofounded by the American Heart Association and the Clinton Foundation, and the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership, a joint venture between Bill Clinton and Canadian mining billionaire Frank Giustra.” — Annie Linskey, “Not All Clinton Charities Bound By New Set Of Rules,” Boston Globe, 8/20/16

6. The FBI Wanted To Open An Investigation Into The Clinton Foundation, But The Effort Was Scuttled By The Obama Administration.

The FBI And Department Of Justice Met In Early 2016 To Discuss Opening A Public Corruption Case Into The Clinton Foundation.

“Officials from the FBI and Department of Justice met several months ago to discuss opening a public corruption case into the Clinton Foundation, according to a US official.” — Drew Griffin, Pamela Brown and Shimon Prokupecz, “Inside The Debate Over Probing The Clinton Foundation,” CNN, 8/11/16

Three FBI Field Offices Wanted To Investigate If Suspicious Banking Activity From A Foreigner Was Involved A Criminal Conflict Of Interest With The State Department And The Clinton Foundation.

“At the time, three field offices were in agreement an investigation should be launched after the FBI received notification from a bank of suspicious activity from a foreigner who had donated to the Clinton Foundation, according to the official. FBI officials wanted to investigate whether there was a criminal conflict of interest with the State Department and the Clinton Foundation during Clinton’s tenure. The Department of Justice had looked into allegations surrounding the foundation a year earlier after the release of the controversial book ‘Clinton Cash,’ but found them to be unsubstantiated and there was insufficient evidence to open a case.” — Drew Griffin, Pamela Brown and Shimon Prokupecz, “Inside The Debate Over Probing The Clinton Foundation,” CNN, 8/11/16

Obama’s Department Of Justice Pushed Back Against Opening A Case.

“As a result, DOJ officials pushed back against opening a case during the meeting earlier this year. Some also expressed concern the request seemed more political than substantive, especially given the timing of it coinciding with the investigation into the private email server and Clinton’s presidential campaign.” — Drew Griffin, Pamela Brown and Shimon Prokupecz, “Inside The Debate Over Probing The Clinton Foundation,” CNN, 8/11/16

The FBI Field Offices Were “Waved Off” By The DOJ.

“Accusations that Clinton has committed crimes, and gotten away with them, have colored Republican campaigns for decades. They’ve picked up since the FBI announced that it would take no further steps to investigate her ‘careless’ use of a private email server after a year-long probe; they’ve gained more steam after reports that three (of 56) FBI field offices wanted to probe the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation over a foreign donation but were waved off by a DOJ that had come up empty in a similar probe.” — David Weigel, “‘Lock Her Up’ Sentiment Comes To A Congressional Campaign,” The Washington Post, 8/12/16

7. Clinton’s Chief Of Staff At State Had A Deep And Simultaneous Involvement In The Clinton Foundation.

It Was Discovered That Clinton’s Chief Of Staff At The State Department Cheryl Mills Went To New York In 2012 To Interview Executives For A Top Position At The Clinton Foundation.

“A CNN investigation found that Clinton aide Cheryl Mills was involved in the Clinton Foundation while she was also employed as Chief of Staff to the Secretary of State. On a trip to New York in 2012, Mills interviewed two executives for a top position at the Clinton foundation. The State Department said she was on personal time. Mills’ attorney says she was, doing ‘volunteer work for a charitable foundation. She was not paid.’” — Drew Griffin, Pamela Brown and Shimon Prokupecz, “Inside The Debate Over Probing The Clinton Foundation,” CNN, 8/11/16

“The Fact That The Aide, Cheryl Mills, Was Taking Part In Such A High Level Task For The Clinton Foundation While Also Working As Chief Of Staff For The Secretary Of State Raises New Question About The Blurred Lines That Dogged The Clinton As Secretary Of State.” — Drew Griffin, Pamela Brown and Shimon Prokupecz, “Inside The Debate Over Probing The Clinton Foundation,” CNN, 8/11/16

The State Department Has Been Stonewalling Congressional Investigators On This Matter.

“The Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Republican Chuck Grassley of Iowa, has tried to get answers about Mills’ New York trip as well. Grassley sent Secretary of State John Kerry a letter in January asking the purpose of Mills’ trip. The State Department did not officially respond to the letter.” — Drew Griffin, Pamela Brown and Shimon Prokupecz, “Inside The Debate Over Probing The Clinton Foundation,” CNN, 8/11/16

8. Sidney Blumenthal Collected $10,000 A Month From The Clinton Foundation While Providing Libyan Intelligence To Clinton.

Clinton Wanted To Bring Blumenthal On Board To The State Department In 2009, But The Hire Was Turned Down By The Obama White House Because Of His “Harsh Attacks” In The Democratic Primary.

“As White House chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel was the one to bring the hammer down on Sidney Blumenthal. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton wanted to hire Mr. Blumenthal, a loyal confidant who had helped her promote the idea of a ‘vast right-wing conspiracy’ more than a decade ago. But President Obama’s campaign veterans still blamed him for spreading harsh attacks against their candidate in the primary showdown with Mrs. Clinton last year. So Mr. Emanuel talked with Mrs. Clinton, said Democrats informed about the situation, and explained that bringing Mr. Blumenthal on board was a no-go.” — Peter Baker and Jeff Zeleny, “Emanuel Wields Power Freely, And Faces The Risks,” The New York Times, 8/15/09

[Blumenthal] “Earned About $10,000 A Month As A Full-Time Employee Of The Clinton Foundation” While At The Same Time He Provided Intelligence On Libya To Then-Secretary Clinton. “Sidney Blumenthal, a longtime confidant of Bill and Hillary Clinton, earned about $10,000 a month as a full-time employee of the Clinton Foundation while he was providing unsolicited intelligence on Libya to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to multiple sources familiar with the arrangement.” — Kenneth P. Vogel, “Clinton Foundation paid Blumenthal $10K per month while he advised on Libya,” Politico, 5/28/15

Blumenthal Was Added To The Clinton Foundation’s Payroll In 2009…

“Not Long After Advising Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Campaign — At The Behest Of Former President Bill Clinton…” “Blumenthal was added to the payroll of the Clintons’ global philanthropy in 2009 — not long after advising Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign — at the behest of former president Bill Clinton, for whom he had worked in the White House, say the sources.” — Kenneth P. Vogel, “Clinton Foundation Paid Blumenthal $10K Per Month While He Advised On Libya,” Politico, 5/28/15

Some Clinton Foundation Officials “Questioned” Blumenthal’s “Value And Grumbled That His Hiring Was A Favor From The Clintons.”

“While Blumenthal’s foundation job focused on highlighting the legacy of Clinton’s presidency, some officials at the charity questioned his value and grumbled that his hiring was a favor from the Clintons, according to people familiar with the foundation.” — Kenneth P. Vogel, “Clinton Foundation Paid Blumenthal $10K Per Month While He Advised On Libya,” Politico, 5/28/15

“When the Clintons last occupied the White House, Sidney Blumenthal cast himself in varied roles: speechwriter, in-house intellectual and press corps whisperer. Republicans added another, accusing Mr. Blumenthal of spreading gossip to discredit Republican investigators, and forced him to testify during President Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial. Now, as Hillary Rodham Clinton embarks on her second presidential bid, Mr. Blumenthal’s service to the Clintons is again under the spotlight.”– Nicholas Confessore and Michael S. Schmidt, “Clinton’s Friend’s Memos On Libya Draw Scrutiny To Politics And Business, ”The New York Times, 5/18/15

Blumenthal’s Work With Clinton Has Been “Wide-Ranging,” “Complicated,” And Embodied “The Blurry Lines Between Business, Politics And Philanthropy That Have Enriched And Vexed The Clintons And Their Inner Circle For Years.”

“But an examination by The Times suggests that Mr. Blumenthal’s involvement was more wide-ranging and more complicated than previously known, embodying the blurry lines between business, politics and philanthropy that have enriched and vexed the Clintons and their inner circle for years.” — Nicholas Confessore and Michael S. Schmidt, “Clinton’s Friend’s Memos On Libya Draw Scrutiny To Politics And Business, ”The New York Times, 5/18/15

“[I]t May Be Difficult To Determine Where One Of Mr. Blumenthal’s Jobs Ended And Another Began.” “But interviews with his associates and a review of previously unreported correspondence suggest that — once again — it may be difficult to determine where one of Mr. Blumenthal’s jobs ended and another began.”– Nicholas Confessore and Michael S. Schmidt, “Clinton’s Friend’s Memos On Libya Draw Scrutiny To Politics And Business, ”The New York Times, 5/18/15

“[T]he Clintons’ Past Does Provide Some Evidence That When It Comes To Friends And Politics, They Prize Loyalty Over All Else.”

“Why didn’t Clinton do either of those things? Who knows. But, the Clintons’ past does provide some evidence that when it comes to friends and politics, they prize loyalty over all else.” (Chris Cillizza, “Hillary Clinton Is Defending Her ‘Loyal Old Friends.’ Here’s Why That’s A Mistake.,” The Washington Post, 5/19/15

9. The Clinton Foundation Failed To Disclose $26.4 Million In Speaking Honoraria While Clinton Was Secretary Of State.

money-laundering-Clinton-FoundationIn May 2015, The Clinton Foundation Reported That It Has Received As Much As $26 Million In Previously Undisclosed Speaking Fees.

“The Clinton Foundation reported Thursday that it has received as much as $26.4 million in previously undisclosed payments from major corporations, universities, foreign sources and other groups … The money was paid as fees for speeches by Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton. Foundation officials said the funds were tallied internally as “revenue” rather than donations, which is why they had not been included in the public listings of its contributors published as part of the 2008 agreement.” — Rosalind Helderman and Tom Hamburger, “Clinton Foundation Reveals Up To $26 Million In Additional Payments,” The Washington Post, 5/21/15

“The Clinton Foundation Confirmed Thursday That It Received As Much As $26.4 Million In Previously Unreported Payments From Foreign Governments And Corporations For Speeches Given By The Clintons.” — Alexandra Jaffe and Dan Merica, “Clinton Foundation Didn’t Disclose As Much As $26M In Speaking Fees,”CNN, 5/21/15

The Disclosure Came As The Foundation Faced Questions “Over Whether It Fully Complied With A 2008 Ethics Agreement To Reveal Its Donors And Whether Any Of Its Funding Sources Present Conflicts Of Interest.

“The disclosure came as the foundation faced questions over whether it fully complied with a 2008 ethics agreement to reveal its donors and whether any of its funding sources present conflicts of interest for Hillary Rodham Clinton as she begins her presidential campaign.” — Rosalind Helderman and Tom Hamburger, “Clinton Foundation Reveals Up To $26 Million In Additional Payments,” The Washington Post, 5/21/15

The Disclosure Of Speaking Fees Was “The Latest In A String Of Admissions From The Foundation That It Didn’t Always Abide By A 2008 Ethics Agreement To Disclose Its Funding Sources Publicly.”

“It’s the latest in a string of admissions from the foundation that it didn’t always abide by a 2008 ethics agreement to disclose its funding sources publicly. That agreement, penned as Hillary Clinton became secretary of state, is certain to continue the headache that the foundation’s work and donors have become for Clinton as she makes another run at the White House.” — Alexandra Jaffe and Dan Merica, “Clinton Foundation Didn’t Disclose As Much As $26M In Speaking Fees,” CNN, 5/21/15

The Clinton’s Paid Speaking Honorariums Included Six Figure Speaking Fees From Foreign Companies And Wall Street Banks.

“The paid appearances included speeches by former president Bill Clinton to the Nigerian ThisDay newspaper group for at least $500,000 and to the Beijing Huaduo Enterprise Consulting Company Ltd., an investment holding company that specializes in the natural gas market, for at least $250,000. Citibank paid at least $250,000 for a speech by Hillary Rodham Clinton.” — Rosalind Helderman and Tom Hamburger, “Clinton Foundation Reveals Up To $26 Million In Additional Payments,” The Washington Post, 5/21/15

Clinton Herself Delivered 15 Speeches On The Foundation’s Behalf…

“Including One Address To Goldman Sachs And Another To JPMorgan Chase.” “But the new disclosure indicates that the former president has also spent considerable time speaking on the foundation’s behalf — 73 times since 2002. Hillary Clinton has delivered 15 such speeches, including one address to Goldman Sachs and another to JPMorgan Chase.” — Rosalind Helderman and Tom Hamburger, “Clinton Foundation Reveals Up To $26 Million In Additional Payments,” The Washington Post, 5/21/15

10. Since 2003, The Clinton Foundation Has Spent More Than $50 Million On Travel.

From 2003 To 2012, The Clinton Foundation Spent More Than $50 Million On Travel.

“Bill Clinton’s foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses since 2003, an analysis of the non-profit’s tax forms reveal.” — Geoff Earle, “Bill Clinton Foundation Has Spent More Than $50 Million On Travel Expenses,” New York Post, 8/20/13

In Just 2011, The Clinton Associated Foundations Spent $12.1 Million On Travel.

“The web of foundations run by the former president spent an eye-opening $12.1 million on travel in 2011 alone, according to an internal audit conducted by foundation accountants. That’s enough to by 12,000 air tickets costing $1,000 each, or 33 air tickets each day of the year.” — Geoff Earle, “Bill Clinton Foundation Has Spent More Than $50M On Travel Expenses,” New York Post, 8/20/13

The William J. Clinton Foundation Spent $4.2 Million On Travel In 2011.

“That overall figure includes travel costs for the William J. Clinton Foundation (to which Hillary and Chelsea are now attached) of $4.2 million on travel in 2011, the most recent year where figures are available.” — Geoff Earle, “Bill Clinton Foundation Has Spent More Than $50M On Travel Expenses,” New York Post, 8/20/13

“The Clinton Global Health Initiative Spent Another $730,000 On Travel In 2011, While The Clinton Health Action Initiative (CHAI) Spent $7.2 Million On Travel.”(Geoff Earle, “Bill Clinton Foundation Has Spent More Than $50M On Travel Expenses,” New York Post, 8/20/13

Latinas-for-TrumpThese fabulous looking Hispanic Latinas and Latinos are all Donald Trump‘s supporters who believe The Donald unequivocally got what it takes as a leader to save the United States of America, a nation in crisis, currently riffled with Muslim terrorist attacks, cop killings, and racial divisiveness, from destruction by the unholy alliance of corrupt traitors, globalists, and prominent Islamofascists with jihadist Hussein Obama as the de facto terrorist Muslim Brotherhood‘s proxy; and hopefully reunite and restore the country to its former greatness.

2. The unprecedented threat of Muslim terrorism.

Despite the taqiyya, or Muslim lies, deception, and false narrative, of the so-called “Islamophobia” continually spread by terrorist-designated CAIR, it is absolute true that the majority of Muslims are not peaceful, because Muslims are taught to kill non-Muslims, especially Christians and Jews, and even their own wives and daughters (as in “Honor” killings). One just has to ask oneself the question if Muslims could routinely kill even their own Muslim family members without hesitation, what would prevent them from killing non-Muslim, non-family members. The answer should be obvious to all that nothing would prevent these depraved, immoral individuals from mass murdering non-Muslims, and this is in fact what has happened, not just recently, but throughout human history since the 7th century when Muhammad started his first bloodbath.

Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them.” Koran 2:191

Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood.” Koran 9:123

When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them.” Koran 9:5

Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.” Koran 3:85

The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them.”… Koran 9:30

Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam” Koran 5:33

Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies.” Koran 22:19

“The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them.” Koran 8:65

Muslims must not take the infidels as friends.” Koran 3:28

Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.” Koran 8:12

Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.” 9:112

“The Believers fight in Allah’s cause; they slay and are slain, kill and are killed.” 8:39

“So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (non-Muslims) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world).” 8:65

As Muslim terrorists specifically target Christians (including Roman Catholics and Protestants), Jews, and homosexuals, many religious Hispanic and Latino, and not just LGBT, communities across U.S., whose members are mostly Roman Catholics (%62), and Protestants (%19), together making up %81 of Latinos (versus %73 of U.S. general public), inevitably and suddenly find themselves vulnerable, hunted, and brutally slaughtered like animals, as the case with the recent massacre in Orlando shootings (June 12, 2016), committed by Muslim terrorist Omar Mateen at Pulse Nightclub, where the vast majority of the victims were Hispanics and Latinos. As lawless and pro-Islam, anti-American, anti-Hispanic, anti-Latino as the jihadist Hussein Obama-Hillary Clinton’s administration has proven itself time and time again, the Muslim terrorist’s wife Noor Zahi Salman was protected and able to escape justice without consequence, while both Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton still refused to say “radical Islamic terrorism”, let alone just “Islamic terrorism”, the more accurate label.

3. Latinos & Hispanics are at even greater risk of being attacked by Muslims than U.S. general population.

While a higher percentage of Latinos & Hispanics are Christians (%81) making them appealing targets to Muslim mass murders, it is the deep-seated hatred for Christian Spaniards not only based on the violent teachings from Quran but also from hatred-preaching imams constantly preaching revenge regarding Spanish Inquisition ( Inquisición española, established in 1480 by Catholic Monarchs Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castile in to control the Muslim invasion of Spain), and the generic despise of blacks, including black Muslims (slavery is still legal in many Muslim countries) and bigoted disdain for kuffar (or kafir, non-Muslims) of all races, including Native Americans throughout Americana, including not just North America (Navajo, Cherokee, Sioux, etc.), but also from Central, Latin, and South America (Aztec, Mayan). In fact, ISIS declared in their publication Dabiq issue 15 that if they had invaded America earlier, “the lucrative African slave trade would have continued” and “As for the Native Americans – after the slaughter of their men, those who would favor smallpox to surrendering to the Lord (Allah) – then the Muslims would have taken their surviving women and children as slaves, raising the children as model Muslims and impregnating their women to produce a new generation of mujahidin“.

4. Latinos and Hispanics have been used only for political purpose by Democrats.

Democrats-(DNC)-target-Hispanics-voters-just-for-their-loyalty,-revealved-by-WikileaksJust like black voters, Hispanic voters were targeted by Democrats specifically for their trans-generational partisan loyalty, as revealed by Wikileaks documents hacked from Democratic National Committee (DNC), released Jul 22, 2016. Many hopeful black voters learned the hard reality, seeing their unemployment at the worst level in 20 years, after electing Barack Obama into U.S. Presidency, based on false hope of real “change we can believe in” promised by Obama.

5. Latinos and Hispanics have been disrespected by Democrats.

For example, members of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) regularly and insultingly refers to Latino outreach as “taco bowl engagement, as revealed by a Wikileaks DNC emails.

6. Prominent Hispanic leaders now support Donald Trump.

As the political dynamics have shifted recently with more facts and current events represented themselves, more and more Hispanic leaders are now supporting Donald Trump for a number of reasons, in addition to those previously mentioned.

8. Hispanic Senator from Kentucky supports Donald Trump.

At their core, Hispanics believe what Republicans believe: traditional family values, church, faith in God, the dignity of work, and the opportunity for self-sufficiency that comes from a free society and a limited government. They have simple dreams that might seem mundane to the average American, but would sound familiar to our founding fathers and their core principles…

There is only one candidate who will protect it for our current and future generations. That candidate is Donald Trump.

And now a message for my Latino friends:

A mis hermanos hispanos: nuestras familias se fugaron le paises llenos de corrupcion y politicos mentirosos. Por favor, no permitan que esa miseria occura en este pais también. Vivimos en una isla de libertad y opportunidad. Voten conmigo.

Voten Republicano. Y voten for Donald Trump.

Hillary Clinton, you failed the Hispanic community, and you don’t deserve our vote,says Dr. Ralph Alvarado, a physician and a Senator from Kentucky.

“I just had to do the right thing. I had no choice. [Our country] is going to hell.”- Donald Trump.

Great Reasons to vote for Donald Trump.

Donald J. Trump for U.S. President 1. Donald Trump is everything that Hillary Clinton is not, and vice versa.

The alternative to Trump’s Presidency is simply unthinkable- the destruction of United States (and likely Western civilization) as a country by Hillary Clinton, whose foreign policy has destroyed Libya, Iraq, Syria, and much of the Middle East. Hillary Clinton left trail of deaths, trail of bribery and corruptions, trail of scandals (Whitewaters, Travelgate, Chinagate, Benghazi, Lewinsky, Clinton Foundation, etc.) Indeed, Hillary Clinton is the most corrupted politician, under multiple federal criminal investigations by the FBI, ever ran for U.S. Presidency. Hillary Clinton is the ultimate corruptions enabler who has perfected corruption into an art form, acting as both the corrupted and corrupter- first used power to get money, then used money to get more power (just like she is doing now by running for U.S. Presidency) to further more selfish, personal gains.

Benghazi-Hillary-Clinton Huma Abedin and Hillary Clinton

Saudi puppet & corrupt dhimmi traitor Crooked Hillary panders to Muslims and terrorists-sponsoring, women-abusing Islamofascist countries to buy their votes and massive donations (more than $500 millions, part of $2 billions, for Clinton Foundation so far), respectively.

Saudi puppet & corrupt dhimmi traitor Crooked Hillary Clinton panders to blacks by blaming white Americans for being killed by Black Lives Matter (BLM) thugs and Nation of Islam domestic terrorists. 8 Police Officers, 5 in Dallas (Jul 7, 2016), 3 in Baton Rouge (jul 17, 2016), thanks to the War on Cops incited by jihadist Hussein Obama’s continued, calculated rhetoric.


It is quite obvious that in a normal, rational, uncorrupt society which United States used to be, Hillary Clinton would already have been prosecuted, charged, and jailed; not milling around with impunity, and certainly not running a Presidential campaign. At the very least, Crooked Hillary should be in the Big House (prison) and not the White House.

2. The enemies of America do not want Trump to be U.S. President.

In fact, Saudi Prince begs Americans not to vote for Trump. Saudi government and Saudi royalty have provided material supports to the 9-11 terrorist attack, in which 15 out of 19 Muslim terrorist hijackers were Saudi nationals, under direction of Al-Qaeda chief Bin Laden, also a Saudi. Saudi government threatened economic retaliation, or specifically dumping $750 billions in U.S. treasuries, over a bill in Congress that could make it liable for damages from the 9/11 attacks. For more than 13 years, 28 pages of the 9/11 Commission Report remained classified until July 15, 2016, when they were declassified, revealing a web of interconnections linking Saudi government officials, members of the Saudi royal family, suspected Saudi intelligence operatives and the 9/11 hijackers.

Saudi-Prince-begs-America-to-reject-Donald-Trump Saudi-government-funds-9-11-Muslim-terrorists Muslim-terrorist-9-11-hijackers-

Saudi royalty and government funded terrorist attack on 9/11, and continue funding the spread of Wahabbism (Salafism) and Muslim terrorism worldwide, aided by Hijrah, strategic Muslim immigration or to non-Muslim countries (toward forming global Islamic Caliphate), now mostly unchecked and unvetted, which Donald Trump plans to immediately stop.

3. U.S. Supreme Court is hanging in balance.

Current the U.S. Supreme Court is under crisis, with 4 Conservative judges vs 4 Liberal judges, or 4-4, after Justice Atonin Scalia, a Conservative, suddenly passed away. Without Conservative jurists to uphold the U.S. Constitution, United States are open to lawlessness and destruction from within by the liberal leftists collaborating with the globalists and Islamofascists. Up to 5 Supreme Court justices can retire within the next 8 years, or 2 terms of U.S. Presidency, so that it is critical for a Constitution-minded President like Trump (as self-proclaimed candidate of law and order) to be elected to appoint and fill those upcoming vacancies to keep United States a Constitutional Republic, and not a Sharia Republic.

In contrast to Hillary, Trump plans to defend the U.S. Constitution and the Amendments. Here pick list of potential U.S. Supreme Court Justices contains all notable conservatives.

4. Protection of U.S. First and Second Amendments.

Trump will protect U.S. First and Second Amendments. In the contrary, Hillary Clinton has repeatedly made it clear that she would take away the First Amendment, starting with passing Blasphemy Law under the guise of House Resolution 569, already drafted by her fellow Democrats, and take away the Second Amendment, under the guise of “Sensible Gun Control” or “Common Sense Gun Legislation”.


“Commonsense Gun Legislation” is code word for guns grabbing, explains Hillary Clinton’s campaign staffer Mary Bayer.

5. Trump will restore laws & orders to the nation.

U.S. under Obama’s administration has increasingly become more lawless (with 76 violations so far), and not just recently revealed by DNC emails from Wikileaks, under Hussein Obama’s regime, as the self-proclaimed Law and Order Candidate.



Constitutional lawyers blasts jihadist Hussein Obama’s regime of lawlessness.

6. Trump is not part of the rigged system.

Like Crooked Hillary Clinton or “Feel-the-Bern” Bernie Sanders, a man who didn’t have a real job until he’s in his 4o’s, promised his gullible voters of free college, free healthcare, free everything, anti-Hillary, anti-corruption, anti-establishment, anti-Wall Street, anti-TPP, anti-open borders, anti-globalization, etc. just to get their supports and their $250 million donations, before betraying them to endorse Hillary Clinton, with whom (and DNC), he likely had a prearranged collusion even before starting his campaign, based on his pattern of behavior alone. #SelloutSanders.

7. Trump’s love for America & his wish to serve the country are genuine.

This is evidenced by his many sacrifices just to run for U.S. Presidency. He has already acquired a vast amount of wealth ($10 billions) and power (President of Trump Organization, employing over 20,000 employees worldwide), an extremely successful business conglomerate with a universal brand & recognition, a great family with successful children, a comfortable & happy life at least 4 years of which he is willing to sacrifice because “I am running to give back to this country which has been so good to me,” he said. He gave up many lucrative contracts, including starring in The Celebrity Apprentice with NBC, and he is willing to risk his own safety and those of his children, grandchildren, and relatives, just to have a chance to serve, save, and rescue the country he loves (there have already been 2 assassination attempts on his life so far).

8. Trump is not dependent on financial supports from lobbyists or special-interest groups.

He largely self-funds his campaign, and he needs no financial supports or endorsement from corrupt career politicians of either party. Therefore, as U.S> President, Trump will not be influenced by those, but only by the wishes and interests of the American public whom he serves.

“I am not looking for their [corrupt politicians’] endorsements… Endorsement from the American people is the only thing I need.”- Donald Trump.

9. Trump is not afraid of speaking the truth.

Even if that means being “politically incorrect” or incurring financial losses. For example, after correctly stating that many Mexican illegal immigrants were rapists and drug dealers, he lost Miss Universe Pagan contractual deal with NBC and Univision and another deal with Macy’s.

10. Trump is an outsider.

He is NOT part of the GOP Establishment (Jeb Bush, John Kasich, Lindsey Graham, Chris Christie) nor fake Constitutionalists (Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina), and certainly NOT just another corrupt, self-serving career politician of either party (Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Dick Durbin, Nikki Haley, Newt Gingrich for RINO‘s and almost all the Democrats) that just wanted to keep the status quo of enriching himself at the expense of the American people by collaborating with the Muslim-In-Chief in White House and his self-appointed Muslim Brotherhood jihadist comrades to destroy America from within, effectively trying to convert this Constitutional Republic from Dar al-harb (دار الحرب), or “House of War”, to Dar al-Islam (ر الإسلام‎ ), or “House of Islam”, by all means necessary, including terror and violence.

11. Trump will create jobs just as he has been doing so all his life.

He is a wildly successful businessman with a proven track record, with more than 500 profitable corporations, 7 failed ones (including 4 bankruptcies), or cumulative success rate of at least %98.6. (in contrast to Hilly Clinton’s success rate of %0, failure rate of %100 for creating 1 failed, scandalous for-profit Whitewater Development Corporation, not counting another scandalous venture of hers, the money laundering front non-profit Clinton Foundation. Trump can certainly utilize his business acumen, finance expertise, and leadership skill to jump start the U.S. economy, make wise trade deals, create and/or bring back jobs, eliminate corruption, waste & mismanagement; cut federal deficit, balance the budget, protect Social Security program, reduce healthcare cost, allocate resources more efficiently, and win more with less. He will run the government as efficiently and as productively as running a profitable, successful business enterprise. #MakeAmericaWorkAgain.

12. Trump will put his talents (and ego) to work for America.

Trump is a talented individual. He’s not only an overwhelmingly successful real estate developer, he is also a good writer (his book Trump: The Art of the Deal, 51 weeks on the New York Times’ bestseller list since 1987), and a great entertainer (his show The Apprentice, voted best TV show of all time). Even his opponents could not help but admit that much- Jeb Bush repeatedly praised Trump as “a gifted politician” even though Trump has never been a politician, nor running for political office, and Vladimir Putin complimented Trump as “a very colorful and talented man, no doubt about that“. Trump’s branding prowess showed not only as positive name recognition in his vast business empire but also in his less-than-glamorous labeling of his opponents, such as “Low-energy Jeb“, “Lyin’ Ted“, “Choked-artist Rubio“, “Little Marco“, “Crooked Hillary“, “Goofy Elizabeth Warren“, “Pocahontas Elizabeth Warren“, etc. and the names have stuck like crazy glue.

Trump might or might not be a Renaissance Man, but it seems Americans can certainly use his talents, insights, ego, and Midas Touch in multiple areas to turn the nation around in this perilous time.

Donald Trump has great track record, putting his money where his mouth is.

13. Trump will bolster U.S. national security & public safety, making America safe.

Defending it from illegal immigrants (many of whom are criminals and convicts from Mexico and Latin America), cross-border drug trafficking by building a wall at the border with Mexico that Mexico will pay for, and defending it from terrorist attacks, %99.9 of which have been committed by Muslims since the 9/11 attack that killed nearly 3,000 American civilians, by immediately stopping massive, unchecked Muslim immigration to U.S.

14. Trump will Make America Great Again.

By re-exploiting her currently untapped potentials, modernizing infrastructures (roads, bridges, airports), returning businesses to America with tax incentives & stopping corporate inversion, improving public education, instituting workable healthcare system. #MakeAmericaGreatAgain.

15. Trump will put America first.

Against the globalists & Islamofascists that want to flood the non-Muslim countries with millions of Muslim thugs, criminals, rapists, terrorists, jihadists, and economic parasites as Trojan Horse to Islamize & destroy these countries from within, as part of hijrah, or Islamic conquest by Muslim immigration, toward forming the global Islamic State or Caliphate. No country with ethical leadership prioritizes citizens of other countries over its own citizens. American citizens of all colors, races, creeds, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and not foreigners, nor illegal immigrants, nor infiltrated enemies of the U.S., will enjoy fair treatment under Trump’s administration, in complete contrast to the status quo under jihadist Hussein Obama’s regime which gives better treatment to Muslim invaders and illegal immigrants than to American citizens, U.S. police officers, U.S. military servicemen and servicewomen, and U.S. veterans, those that have built and put their lives on the line defending this nation. #AmericaFirst #ImWithYou.

16. Trump will reunite the country.

America has been utterly and purposely divided than ever before, by jihadist Hussein Obama.

17. Trump has a true Conservative for Vice President.

As a Conservative Christian, Mike Pence can appeal to the Evangelicals and their supports.

18. Trump’s children (Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump, Donald Trump Jr.) are quite successful in their own rights.

Yet, they are quite centered and down-to-earth despite how successful their father is, unlike many families of rich parents and drug-abused, substance-dependent kids. This is revealing of his system of values that can no doubt help the nation facing the new challenge of “modern family”. It is no coincident that throughout human history, strong nations almost always comprise of citizens with strong family ties, as strong family units strengthen the communities and society that, in turn, strengthen the nation, just like individual bricks strengthen the foundation that, in turn, strengthens the house built above, respectively. Without firm, quality bricks, few houses can be reliably built, stable, and durable.
