DEAR ARKANSAS A.G. LESLIE RUTLEDGE: It's time to subpoena the Clinton Foundation's records

By Richard Henry Lee

The first Republican attorney general for the State of Arkansas in the modern era must immediately launch an investigation into the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, and the first step is to subpoena the foundation records.  With the revelations of possible violations of law occurring almost daily, there is probable cause to launch an investigation.

The Clintons have a long history of making incriminating documents disappear, so it is imperative that the AG act quickly to prevent any destruction of those records.

It is unlikely that the IRS or the Justice Department will investigate the Clintons and their eponymous foundation anytime soon, but the Arkansas attorney general does have the authority to look into any wrongdoing since the foundation is incorporated [PDF] in the state of Arkansas.

The newly elected AG, Leslie Rutledge, will likely be branded by the Clinton machine as a member of the vast right-wing conspiracy, since she holds membership in the National Rifle Association and the Federalist Society and bills herself as a conservative.  The media and liberal bloggers will dig up all the dirt they can find to try to discredit her.  However, the prospect of these attacks must not deter her from performing her duties as the chief law enforcement officer for the state.

Arkansas law requires that charities register with the state and also disclose their financial data, principally by attaching the IRS tax form 990.  In addition, charities must comply with Arkansas law, which one would assume covers a multitude of possible misdeeds.

The AG should obtain details of travel records.  The foundation paid $8.4 million in 2013 in travel expenses out of total expenses of $85 million.  Did the foundation pay for any personal travel unrelated to the mission of the foundation?  Salaries and benefits should also be a target, since they totaled a whopping $30 million.  Did any of those salaries pay for staffers who might be considered political operatives?  The list goes on.

The investigation should include copies of e-mails sent between the foundation employees and Bill and Hillary and other staffers to determine if there is any “shred of evidence” of wrongdoing.

The AG must move quickly, since the Clintons will stonewall all they can to delay and thwart any investigation.  Leslie Rutledge will be doing this country a great service if she decides to investigate.

INSIDER: Clinton Uranium Deal Looks Dirtier Than Michael Moore at an All-You-Can-Eat Fudge Bar

The American Thinker's Thomas Lifson highlights an interesting article by Michael R. Caputo, who once ran public relations for Renaissance Capital. He confirms that the Clinton-uranium "coincidence" in Russia stinks to high heaven.

Even when I worked there, Renaissance Capital had close ties to the Kremlin - the relationship made Renaissance executives into oligarchs. By 2010, the firm had become a practical arm of Vladimir Putin. Nobody of sound mind would think otherwise.

Bill Clinton took that half million dollar payment as his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, served as a key member of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). This inter-agency panel must approve foreign purchase of private American companies the government deems vital to our national interest.

Shortly after Bill Clinton delivered the highest paid speech of his life, CFIUS was to consider and approve the key Russian purchase...

... [But in] 2010-2011, I ran acquisition communications for Safran Group, the French government-controlled defense contractor which bought the US biometrics company L-1. It took us almost two years to gain CFIUS approval for France, an historic ally, to purchase a biometrics firm, not even remotely a strategic asset. We were stymied at every turn by an endless stream of questions.

In contrast, the Rusatom acquisition of UraniumOne got CFIUS approval in four months - for control of 20 percent of America's strategic uranium.

These two CFIUS approvals were happening at precisely the same time. Safran couldn't buy a break and was questioned at ever turn. Somehow, Kremlin-controlled Rusatom's purchase sailed through on a cool breeze.

Any insider will tell you that, considering the vital nature of the CFIUS-UraniumOne proceedings, it is certain that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was directly involved. And Bill took $500,000 indirectly from the Kremlin at the same time.

In other words, we have an actual experiment that proves the Clintons are dirty. A control acquisition, with no national security implications whatsoever, was blocked at every turn. A deal for America's precious uranium resources -- a key to nuclear weapons construction -- was approved faster than fecal matter through a goose.

In a separate article, Lifson also notes that Hillary's serial scandals are beginning to affect fundraising.

STUNNING NEW CHART O` THE DAY: How the Clinton Foundation Spent its Money in 2013

Before Hillary left office in 2013, the Clintons appeared bound and determined to slurp up as much money into their Foundation as possible, spending as little on direct aid as one could imagine for a "charity". The New York Post reports:

The Clinton Foundation's finances are so messy that the nation's most influential charity watchdog put it on its "watch list" of problematic nonprofits last month.

The Clinton family's mega-charity took in more than $140 million in grants and pledges in 2013 but spent just $9 million on direct aid.


The group spent the bulk of its windfall on administration, travel, and salaries and bonuses, with the fattest payouts going to family friends.

In 2013, according to the Clinton Foundation's IRS Form 1990 filing [PDF], the organization actually spent more than twice as much on travel, conferences, conventions and meetings than on actual, eh, grants.

Even the grants that were made were dubious "investments". One such grant was nearly half a million dollars to a San Francisco-based group called "Architecture for Humanity". Earlier this year the group announced it was closing its doors.


The average compensation for the top Clinton Foundation executives we know of was roughly a quarter of a million dollars a year. In fact, as Karl Denninger explains:

You might be interested in knowing that the "charity" had 35 employees with reportable compensation (that is, over $100,000) and their top five combined had $2.6 million in direct (that is, cash) compensation and another $278,000 in benefits for approximately $3 million -- or 1/3rd of all spending on "charitable causes". On a grossed-up basis the charity spent $21.8 million on salaries and wages or approaching three times what it spent on "charity."

In 2013 The Clinton Foundation employed 400 people, which means it doled out only $22,000 per employee.

In other words, it was -- as the Sunlight Foundation describes it -- "a slush fund", not a charity.

READY FOR RINO RAND? Mitch McConnell-backing Rand Paul's Top 12 Embarrassing Flip-Flops [UPDATED]

Do we really need a candidate who is so flippant (or so poorly advised) that he is forced to reverse field on a regular basis? And, more importantly, what do his constant backflips say about his principles?

Oh. And don't even get me started on his support for Mitch McConnell over a true conservative (Matt Bevin) in Kentucky.


Rand Paul Backtracks on Vaccinations
While a measles outbreak was spurring new calls for vaccinations, Paul said in a Feb. 2 TV interview: “I have heard of many tragic cases of walking, talking normal children who wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines.” ... Pediatric groups called the remarks irresponsible, saying the benefits of child vaccines greatly outweigh the risk.

Rand Paul Backtracks on Aid to Israel
Campaigning for a Nebraska Republican in August, Paul sparred with reporters who asked about his earlier calls to end foreign aid to all countries, including Israel... in 2011, Paul proposed a budget that would end all foreign aid, including that for Israel. He defended the position in an ABC News interview at the time.

Rand Paul Backtracks On National Sales Tax Plan
Kentucky's Republican nominee for Senate, Rand Paul, is running away from his past support for abolishing the federal income tax in favor of a national sales tax... As the [Lexington] Herald-Leader wrote, Paul was on shaky ground when he said he has "never said anything like" support for the fair tax.

CRUZ: There is no room for Christians in today's Democrat Party

The title of Jonah Goldberg's recent bestseller -- Liberal Fascism -- has become part of the modern political parlance.

Sen. Ted Cruz argued Saturday that Democrats have become so extreme and "intolerant" of religious views that "there is no room for Christians in today's Democratic Party."

"There is a liberal fascism that is dedicated to going after believing Christians who follow the biblical teaching on marriage," the Texas Republican said in his speech before a Christian conservative audience in Waukee, Iowa.... For his part, Cruz alluded to business that faced pushback for declining to cater to same-sex weddings.

...As the Supreme Court gets ready to hear oral arguments on whether to overturn same-sex marriage bans in states, Cruz introduced legislation last week that would protect bans in place ... "We need leaders who will stand unapologetically in defense of marriage," he said.


The religion of today's progressives is government. Big government. Unlimited government.

There is no room for people of faith in today's Democrat Party.

Will Hillary Get the Petraeus Treatment?

By Investor's Business Daily

Scandal: Which is worse — keeping classified information in a personal journal at home or doing government business and transmitting classified data on a private email account managed from the Clinton family home?

This adds a new level of premeditated secrecy and deceit to the actions of the presumptive 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.

It also adds a new level of hypocrisy to the most transparent administration in history's pursuit of former CIA Director and commander of American forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, Gen. David Petraeus.

Petraeus, who had an extramarital affair with biographer Paula Broadwell, pleaded guilty, after a lengthy government investigation, to a misdemeanor charge of mishandling classified information.

Petraeus had kept in his home a set of eight "Black Books" containing his notes and observations about his experiences, as well as classified information including conversations he had with the president, diplomats, and national security officers. Petraeus provided Broadwell access to these documents but, as far as we know, the information went no further.

So why has no criminal investigation been launched into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email account linked to a home-based Internet service, presumably vulnerable to foreign hackers, used to send emails also possibly containing classified information to people who shouldn't have access to it?

THE CONFIRMATION OF LORETTA LYNCH: Treasonous Sellout #828 by the Establishment Republicans

By Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

The Republican Party is becoming more and more detached from their conservative base. They seem to vote against anything the conservatives want and do all they can to enable our Marxist president. As Andrew McCarthy put it, “Voting to confirm an attorney general who won’t uphold the Constitution isn’t a way to inspire confidence among conservatives.”

Last Thursday, Karl Rove couldn’t wait to announce that, “The dysfunctional Congress finally appears to be working again as the Founders intended.” Really? Because this isn’t the way I perceive the Founders having intended it at all. They would have impeached and removed a sitting president who acted like a monarch. Then to validate Rove’s proclamation, the GOP-controlled Senate confirmed as attorney general Loretta Lynch who blatantly supports the systematic non-enforcement of federal law. Ms. Lynch also supports President Obama’s boldly unconstitutional usurpations of legislative authority, including Congress’ power to set the terms of lawful presence by aliens in our country. Ted Cruz slammed the Republican majority in the Senate for allowing the Lynch nomination:

CHART O' THE DAY: How the Clinton Global Initiative Used its Funds During Hillary's Tenure at State

In 2010, when Barack Obama said, "I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money," he definitely wasn't referring to the Clintons.

Because it wasn't enough for Bill Clinton to sell sensitive missile technology to the Red Chinese for campaign donations. It wasn't enough for Hillary Clinton to sell America's most valuable nuclear technologies to the Russians for "contributions" to her family's personal piggy bank.

That piggy bank, otherwise known as "The Clinton Global Graft Initiative", had an interesting way of doling out the "contributions" it received.


The Clintons are a malignant tumor on the body politic. They have a history of doing anything for money -- including selling out their own country -- and when it comes to their personal bank accounts, there's apparently never enough zeroes.

DANIEL GREENFIELD: For the Left, Society’s Death is Victory

By Daniel Greenfield

The left is winning, but for the left winning is indistinguishable from dying.

The West didn’t defeat Communism; it held it at bay long enough for it to defeat itself. The Soviet Union and the People’s Republic of China crushed Communism more decisively than Goldwater could have ever dreamed of.

The embargo didn’t turn Cuba into a hellhole whose main tourism industry is inviting progressive Canadian pedophiles to rape its children. Castro did that with help from the dead guy on the red t-shirts.

 “One of the greatest benefits of the revolution is that even our prostitutes are college graduates,” Castro told Oliver Stone. In real life, his prostitutes are lucky if they graduated from elementary school.

American admirers eager to get to Havana claim to be worried that Starbucks will ruin their Socialist paradise. What really worries them is that American businesses might give Cuban teens an economic alternative to sexually servicing decrepit leftists from Berkeley for $10 a night in the revolutionary version of Thailand where everyone is free, especially the political prisoners and raped children.

There’s no embargo to blame in Venezuela. Hugo Chavez destroyed his own Bolivarian revolution by implementing it. The Venezuelan economic collapse really took off while Obama was in the White House leafing through the tract Chavez had gifted him blaming America for all of Latin America’s troubles.

Now Chavez, the tract’s author and the Venezuelan economy are all dead.

AND THE HITS JUST KEEP ON COMING: Clinton Crime Family Took Money From Hezbollah Backer

By Investor's Business Daily

Politics: The danger of foreign influence-buying through foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation is seen in millions of dollars of donations from Issam Fares, a Lebanese politician and billionaire enemy of Israel.

In the case of Hillary Clinton, the adage that the past is prologue is both a truism and a warning of possible things to come.

Just as Johnny Chung famously compared the first Clinton White House to a subway turnstile in which you put money to gain access, the Clinton Foundation is looking to be that turnstile on steroids, with dangerous implications for both American and Israeli security.

One of the contributors to the Clinton Foundation, according to an analysis of known donors by Joseph Schoffstall of the Washington Free Beacon, is Issam Fares, a Lebanese billionaire and philanthropist who has donated between $1 million and $5 million.

Some would question the sincerity of his philanthropy, since he is very selective about which of his fellow human beings he wishes to benefit and which he wants to see wiped off the face of the earth.

His connections to the Iranian terrorist sock-puppet Hezbollah and his animus towards our ally Israel speak volumes about his true intentions.

HILLARY'S RESUME: What She Hopes You've Forgotten

By Diane Rigali

Hillary Clinton has been telling America that she is the most qualified candidate for president based on her "record," which she says includes her eight years in the White House as First Lady - or "co-president" - and her seven years in the Senate. Here is a reminder of what that record includes - prior to serving as the most corrupt Secretary of State in modern American history:

HILLARY, As First Lady, assumed authority over Health Care Reform, a process that cost the taxpayers over $13 million. She told both Bill Bradley and Pat Moynahan, key votes were needed to pass her legislation, that she would "demonize "anyone who opposed it. But it was opposed; she couldn't even get it to a vote in a Congress controlled by her own party. (And in the next election, her party lost control of both the House and Senate.)

HILLARY assumed authority over selecting a female Attorney General. Her first two recommendations (Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood) were forced to withdraw their names from consideration, and then she chose Janet Reno. Janet Reno has since been described by Bill himself as "my worst mistake."

HILLARY recommended Lani Guanier for head of the Civil Rights Commission. When Guanier's radical views became known, her name had to be withdrawn.

HILLARY recommended her former law partners, Web Hubbell, Vince Foster, and William Kennedy for positions in the Justice Department, White House staff, and the Treasury, respectively. Hubbell was later imprisoned, Foster committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.

HILLARY also recommended a close friend of the Clintons, Craig Livingstone, for the position of director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of up to 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, both Hillary and her husband denied knowing him. (FBI agent Dennis Sculimbrene confirmed in a Senate Judiciary Committee in 1996 both the drug use and Hillary's involvement in hiring Livingstone. After that, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office, after serving seven presidents for over thirty years.)

HILLARY, in order to open "slots" in the White House for her friends the Harry Thomasons (to whom millions of dollars in travel contracts could be awarded), had the entire staff of the White House Travel Office fired. They were reported to the FBI for "gross mismanagement" and their reputations ruined. After a thirty-month investigation, only one, Billy Dale, was charged with a crime - mixing personal money with White House funds when he cashed checks. The jury acquitted him in less than two hours.

HILLARY also assumed the duty of directing the "bimbo eruption squad" and scandal defense:

QOTD: "When you’re credibly accused of selling government influence to enemy powers in exchange for truckloads of cash, the obvious response is to ask your allies to give you truckloads of cash too. If you’re a sociopath, I mean; if not, you should probably apologize, return the money, and quietly retire to reflect on what you’ve become.

I wonder if there’s an infinite-regression element to this tactic. Like, will the next fundraising e-mail from Podesta point to conservative blogs complaining about today’s fundraising e-mail, urging Hillary fans to “strike back at the right” by sending her their gold fillings?

...[There are] two sides of her coming “first woman president” campaign pitch. Begging lefty suckers to fork over money in indignation that this fabulously rich family and its fabulously rich “charity” are being challenged for accepting some fabulously lucrative donations from foreigners at curious times is vintage Hillary. This can only end with Iran donating $100 million to the Clinton Foundation on the eve of final nuke negotiations to 'fight Republican lies.'" --Allahpundit
