"Dead Broke" – Meet the Clintons' $100,000 3-Week Hampton Rental

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

If being “dead broke” means dropping $100k on a 3-week rental in the Hamptons, then I’d like to be dead broke too.

In case you aren’t aware of what I’m referring to, recall that:

Clinton told ABC’s Diane Sawyer in a June interview, “We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt.” The former first lady cited legal fees that she and her husband had to pay during his White House tenure.

Of course, this is total nonsense. The only true part about that statement is they were indeed “dead broke” compared to the oligarch level of wealth they have attained since. After all, delivering speeches to very wealthy, bailed out financial criminals pays extraordinarily well. 

So what’s a dead broke couple to do? Spend six figures on a Hamptons rental naturally. From the Daily News:

Former President Bill Clinton and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are slated to arrive in the Hamptons hamlet of Amagansett Thursday, where they’re renting a palatial home owned by private art collector Andre Nasser and his wife Lois.

 

The political power couple will reportedly pay a total $100,000 for the three-week stay.

 

That’s quite a chunk of change but pales in comparison to the $200,000 they dropped on a Sagaponack hideaway last year.

 

The Clintons are likely to run into a string of celebrities during their stay. Their other next-door neighbor will be their close friend, Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

The rabble need not apply. So are you Ready for Oligarchy?

Being "Dead Broke" while money appearing magically out of thin air is a national pass-time. Ask the Fed and Congress.

You might want to think of running for office first ... then get into that category of "dead broke" ... there are various categories of the term

Can you read what you even fucking wrote, Mike?

She said they were dead broke coming out of the White House.  That was 15 fucking years ago.  I hate the cunt as much as anyone but that was then and this is now, and to use such a stupid non-example of her hypocrisy and mendacity is just you using something cheap to pound out a column.

I can read just fine, but I can also remember that the Clintons have always used bad press to create devoted followers that believe in their innocence and actually think bad press is a Republican conspiracy. 

 

Maybe it's because I actually did learn how Political Economists think... I mean it's not like the Clintons are an unknown and their campaign strategies are not well known. This right here is the "air the dirt before anyone else can" phase to create her squeaky clean image for the next run at president.

 

P.S. I did it all without using Ad-Homs.

 All this articles does is enable Clinton's campaign strategy by creating a record of distaste and public reversion to Clinton reinforcing the concept that we are against her out of prejudice rather because she's a corrupt witch. Which goes right in line with how they ran Obama's campaign. 

 

 

Not roundabout, just thinking about 8 moves ahead of everyone else.

@chumbawamba, I'm with you.  I kept looking for the part where they said this vacation took place weeks months or even within a year or two after they left he WH.  I can't stand her and I think she's very dangerous, but stories like this only make the author look stupid and biased and have the opposite of the desired effect.  Heck 15 years ago I was graduating highschool and had no money at all.  That Justin Bieber douche was practically in diapers, now the F-Stick is rolling in it.

You guys are morons. They were never dead broke.  Technically they had a cash flow problem where they had current obligations and future earnings.  This is a financial site, first, political second, so stop with they "well they were broke at one point in time."  Being broke never happened.  People were floating them loans left and right because they have and had unlimited future earnings.

Actually, a lot of Clinton's bad press WAS a Republican conspiracy, Google Clinton and Richard Mellon Scaife or Richard Viguerie and see where a lot of that bad press was generated. Watch and see who does the hit jobs on Hillary.

And for the record, I don't like her any more than you do.

This is what I mean, thinking 8 moves ahead. The NEOCONs and the Progressives have been working together since the 60's. It's all propaganda, in reality all of these people work together. Their propaganda has worked so well that you plebes believe these idiots actually hate each other while they are handing each other pay raises and sharing in the spoils of graft...

Obviously, Hillary’s making these political statements to show that when they got out of the WH they hadn’t been paid for political favors (the favors started coming later). So Mike is right; and they’ve never been dead broke; and the stories at the time explained that they only were dead broke in contrast to the people they were hobnobbing with, who were ultra-millionaires and billionaires.

The Four Horsemen of the White House

It is becoming clear that the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse depicted in the book of Revelation is symbolic of our recent US Presidents. 

The first horse is white which represents Bill Clinton who was always under the white bed sheets having sex with anything that moves.

The second horse is red which represents George W Bush who has a red nose from being a lifelong alcoholic.

The third horse is black which represents Barack Obama for obvious reasons.

The fourth and final horse is pale which is Hillary Clinton for she always looks sickly and pale, like death warmed over.

Once the fourth and final horse arrives the entire world will descend into a state of total liberalism which will usher in a world of blissful despotism....

And if I were a bookie and had to put a number on Hillary 's chances of becoming the next president of USA : about 5 percent ( a guess, based on my perspective from accross the pond )

In such a world it is not surprising that political puppets become oligarchs.

The Clintons are spending half as much this year on their vacation rental, to demonstrate their solidarity with the workers of America (if there are any left). This proves two things: (1)they never want to be dead broke again; and (2) Hillary's running.

The Clinton's are trailer park trash who had to pay $100,000 for a three week stay with their owners. From U.S.A Today:

 

William Jefferson Clinton, 42nd president from 1993 to 2001
-- Net worth: $55 million
Unlike many presidents, Bill Clinton did not come from a wealthy family, nor did he have lucrative employment before his presidency. But since leaving office we estimate that Clinton has earned more than $125 million before taxes, with the vast majority of that coming from speaking fees. Clinton's net worth was reduced in 2008 when his wife, Hillary Clinton, wrote off more than $13 million she loaned her campaign for her own presidential bid. Her campaign debt, once over $25 million, was just retired in January.

 

Another reason why Shrillary will never be president. Bill won't want to write off debt again.

America’s decline has been accelerated by leaders willing to cut its ties to its Founders and its moral underpinnings. Bill Clinton spectacularly demonstrated immorality in office, supported by the vulgar ambitions of Hillary. Their popularity is a tribute to voter-mob rule - the anti-religious and anti-Christian culture of a mass of C-grade and below voters projecting feminism, diversity, wealth transfer, racism, and anti-family license.

Most all of America’s Founders emphasized the importance of Divine Providence for America’s beginnings. Example: Ben Franklin

"I've lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing Proofs I see of this Truth — That God governs in the Affairs of Men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his Notice, is it probable that an Empire can rise without his Aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings, that except the Lord build the House they labor in vain who build it. I firmly believe this, — and I also believe that without his concurring Aid, we shall succeed in this political Building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our Projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall become a Reproach and Bye word down to future Ages." – Benjamin Franklin (“God Governs in the Affairs of Men”)

Former President Clinton has agreed to write his memoirs for Alfred A. Knopf, the publisher announced Monday, in perhaps the biggest deal ever for a nonfiction work.

Terms were not immediately disclosed, but the New York Times reported on its Web site that the 42nd president agreed to an advance of more than $10 million. The book is expected to be out in 2003.

Shut the fuck up about how "broke" Hillary was in 2001 you idiot.

The logic being US troops would do a more effective job toppling the regimes and we wont be arming thugs and terrorists running amok.

Image my surprise when she actually goes on to say in the interview that we did not arm the right kind of people early enough to prevent jihadists taking over.

Kinda makes you wonder how senile she really is being broke and all.

As Secretary of State, she was the architect of that program.  She should know.

A poor boy from Arkansas enters politics to find his riches and creates his sexual harem that excluds his political lesbian wife. Clinton joins the 0.1% and is celebrated as a hero of the poor and the feminist movement. How stupid can the poor be? How stupid and hypocritical can the feminist be?

The remark was a calculated political quip meant for her to "identify" with many americans suffering economically today.  The one problem is that the Clinton's apparently believe the anecdote about the "ignorance, stupidity, and naivety" of most Americans.  While there may be some truth in these adjectives, the one thing you cannot describe a typical American as, is being total morons when it comes to what they believe about the political elites.   In fact only a minuscule percentage of Americans believe anything that a politician says, especially when it comes to their personal finances.   For Clinton to think this statement would resonate with Americans is the height of arrogance, narcism, egoistical, self serving dim witted underestimation of the public by her political machine.  The same thinking that had her blow what was seemingly an insurmountable lead during the last democratic primaries.  

Pride goeth before a fall.  She fell once and is obviously going to fall again.   What's that old saying Bush so famously mangled, "Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me."  She's been fooled again.  The media will back her categorically.  This time, unlike Obama, they won't be able to hide the Clinton's warts.  He was unknown and information was easily suppressed or ignored all together.  Donald Duck would've won that presidential election had he been the democratic nominee.  The American people won't be so easily swayed by her, Bill's or even Chelsea's bullshit.  Now the stupid college kid vote might be another story.  Plus the fact that there will likely not be another viable candidate.  She has that going for her I suppose which gives her decent odds. 

Is this who you want answering the phone at 3 am?  Not me, not even on my worst beer goggle night when they are all supposed to get prettier at closing time.

it would be delicious if Billary were defeated in the primaries again in 2016, probably by some unknown Hispanic like julian castro. they assumed that the brown and black hordes would grovel at their feet forever but little did they imagine that these darkies had a mind of their own...

Not a fan of the Clintons, but the "dead broke" meme is a bit obsolete.

That was then. This is now.

 

This article (and the several like it) is pure nonsense and diminishes the credibility of the poster(s). If the Hampton excursion took place just after They left the White House then fine. But I ain't seein' no dates in this piece. As much as I dislike the Clintons this kind of journalism hurts the cause.

pakled is it? well what cause is it you are worried about?? oh you mean the one where lets pretend the left's leadership ain't got a dime in the bank and they wear worn out shoes? or the obvious attempts to distract from the wealth obtained thru the use of .gov as in D finestein or N pelosi?? what cause there are so many.

Well then how about this.  As they were preparing to leave the White House, they somehow managed, being dead broke and millions in debt mind you to

1. Purchase a house worth several million dollars at purchase in an exclusive neighborhood in Westchester Co.  

2. Bill leased large office space in upscale Harlem (no not an oxymoron)  for his personal office.  

Now those two events that were not only well publicized but easily found in public record if you so desire are not the moves of "dead broke" people.  End of story really assuming you operate with the intellectually honest crowd.

Purchasing Harlem office space a nice political move (my opinion) for Hillary's future NY Senate run reminding everyone of Bill's coveted moniker of the "first black president" a ridiculous notion and the neighborhood in which they purchased their multi million dollar home was cordoned off to only those providing proof of residence for that neighborhood much to the chagrin of the current homeowners, fact reported by local NY area news at the time.  Nevermind that they had never resided in NY in their life but what the hell does that matter really.
