"Clinton Inc." Raises Almost $3 Billion, And The Biggest 'Donor' Is...

Tyler Durden's picture

"Clinton Inc. is going to be the most formidable fundraising operation for the Democrats in the history of the country. Period. Exclamation point," is how on Republican lobbyist describes the Bill-and-Hillary show and as WSJ reports, in total, the Clintons raised between $2 billion and $3 billion from all sources, including individual donors, corporate contributors and foreign governments. They have raised more than $1 billion from U.S. companies and industry donors during two decades on the national stage through campaigns, paid speeches and a network of organizations advancing their political and policy goals. Financial Services firms have been one of the single largest sources of money for the Clintons since the 1992 presidential campaign; and the couple's No. 1 Wall Street contributor, giving nearly $5 million - Goldman Sachs.



As WSJ reports,

Bill and Hillary Clinton helped raise more than $1 billion from U.S. companies and industry donors during two decades on the national stage through campaigns, paid speeches and a network of organizations advancing their political and policy goals, The Wall Street Journal found.


Those deep ties potentially give Mrs. Clinton a financial advantage in the 2016 presidential election, if she runs, and could bring industry donors back to the Democratic Party for the first time since Mr. Clinton left the White House.




In total, the Clintons raised between $2 billion and $3 billion from all sources, including individual donors, corporate contributors and foreign governments, the Journal found. Between $1.3 billion and $2 billion came from industry sources.




The donated funds were split among the Clintons' political operations, which raised $1.2 billion; their nonprofit foundation, which collected between $750 million and $1.7 billion; and speaking fees, which totaled about $100 million.


Not counting about $250 million the Clinton foundation has received from foreign donors, at least 75% of the money arrived in large donations from industry sources, a category defined by federal regulators and the Center for Responsive Politics.




"She has the credibility among Wall Street donors that could make it likely that Wall Street moves back into the Democratic fold," said Sam Geduldig, a Republican lobbyist and fundraiser who represents Wall Street firms.

But do not worry - she is all about Main Street...

"If we are going to take on the mortgage debt of storied Wall Street giants," she wrote, "we ought to extend the same help to struggling, middle-class families."

Putin?...   ISIS?...   Mossad?

The main reason big money is vested, is she is one of the few that has deep knowledge of much of the lies, double-talk, cover-ups, deals, frauds and secrets that are out there.  She's by now an insider.  It's dangerous to go outside for the presidency.  Better just buy it.  Oh, I found this article interesting.  I'm sure H.R. Clinton can defend anything they want her to.  Why is that important?  What does it matter?

..... and the next shoo in and first woman president:


Forgive the coarse language, but the following is who Hillary REALLY is.         These quotes are all documented.   If you think you might be offended then ..  READ NO  MORE         STOP HERE     And people wonder why she would not make a good president..?      EIGHT QUOTES FROM 8 DIFFERENT BOOKS   Her actual words:   (1)
"Where is the Godamn flag..?  I want the Godamn fucking flag up every morning at fucking sunrise...!!"   From the book "Inside the White House" by Ronald Kessler, p. 244; Hillary to staff at the Arkansas Governor's mansion on Labor Day 1991.
“Fuck off !!! It's enough I have to see you shit-kickers every day! I'm not going to talk to you, too!! Just do your Godamn job and keep your mouth shut...!!!"   From the book "America Evita" by Christopher Anderson, p. 90; Hillary to her State Trooper bodyguards after one of them greeted her with "Good Morning."


"If you want to remain on this detail, get your fucking ass over here and grab those bags!" From the book "The First Partner" p. 259; Hillary to a Secret Service Agent who was reluctant to carry her luggage because he wanted to keep his hands free in case of an incident.
"Stay the Fuck back... Stay the Fuck back away from me !!!  Don't come within ten yards of me, or else !!!  Just fucking do as I say, Okay!!?"   From the book "Unlimited Access" by Clinton ’s FBI Agent-in-Charge, Gary Aldridge, p. 139; Hillary is screaming at her Secret Service detail.


  (5) "Where's the miserable cock sucker?" (otherwise known as “Bill Clinton”) From the book "The Truth about Hillary" by Edward Klein, p. 5; Hillary shouting at a Secret Service officer.


    (6) "You fucking idiot !!!!" From the book, "Crossfire," p. 84; Hillary to a State Trooper who was driving her to an event.


"Put this plane on the ground... I left my sunglasses in the limo.  I need those fucking sunglasses...  We need to go back !!! ! From the book " Dereliction of Duty" p. 71-72; Hillary to Marine One helicopter pilot to turn back while en route to Air Force One.


"Come on Bill, put your dick away!  You can't Fuck her here!! "   From the book "Inside the White House" by Ronald Kessler, p. 243; Hillary to Gov. Bill Clinton when she spots him talking with an attractive female.   * * * * *
This ill-tempered, violent, loud-mouth, hateful and abusive woman wants to be your next President, and have total control as Commander and Chief of our Military, the very Military for which she has shown incredible disdain throughout her public life.   Remember her most vile comment about Benghazi : “What difference at this point does it make ?????”

Not too shabby for ones that claim poverty and their spawn doesn't care about money. Kinda hard to care about it when you trip over piles of it all day. Arrogant assholes are due for a fall.

I was thinking just this very morning while shopping for over ripe bananas, that Hillary's campaign will claim anybody who is not a supporter, a sexist misogynist.

Shopping for over ripe bananas?  Must be nice...

While you were out shopping I was out dumpster diving for discarded dog food behind the local kennel while thinking how fortunate my lot in life is not having to be married to Hillary Rodman Clinton...

I control my appetite and food costs by imagining HRC naked and riding a running camel.

I haven't eaten in 17 days.

I wish someone who cared would launch a campaign for a constitutional amendment disqualifying anyone related to a former president from the office. ;)

 I wish there were a law that the President had to be a US citizen...,

This is not true. Bicthory said that she and Bill were so broke they was pickin possums off the road for dinner.

All the idiot democratic women I know will vote for HRC.  They are mindless.

No review of Clinton's state dept record.

No review of Clinton's history as a senator.

Just mindless fauning because she is a woman.

You must remember this:

  Abortion is sacred, a sacrament,  a woeman's choice,  and the only right to privacy listed in the Constitution,,, barf, barf...

  and the world revolves around gay rats.

Now as to why they care about queer rodents....?

I, myself, am getting a bit weary of gays being a protected class. I work with one that loves to regale us with all the rich men he has had sex with and how it paid off monetarily for him. That he now wears a diaper for his escapades was still worth it. Some have complained to HR and he has been "spoken " to for talking inappropriately. He still does it because he knows he will never be fired. In fact he's been more graphic and brazen. Yet one work associate brought in flowers to a female and was disciplined when she complained. He ended up leaving because of all the shit that was hoisted on him. In the old days you just said " thank you for the kind gesture but I am not interested... Sorry." That would stop the majority and you would rarely need to go to the next level. Corporate America has turned into Kindergarten.

How do you define sexual herassmeant in the workplace?

If she thinks the guy is fuckable it aint sexual herassmeant; if she is awkwardly approached by some man she considers beneath her, she is insulted and it's TIME TO FIRE THE SICK BASTARD!! THE NERVE!! BUYING ME FLOWERS! ASKING ME OUT!!

I'd love for some dude who got fired over such BS to jack the woman up late one moonless night.  A broken nose doth teach humility.

$3 billion over a decade? that isn't enough. Consider that they have had 4 campaigns. Two for Bill's presidency. One for Hilliary's senate and one for her failed presidential run.

Of course everyone above seem to missed that. Another non story

From rags to riches in such a short time and nobody can accuse her of flatbacking! The land of equal opportunity!
