[WaPo] Hillary Clinton gave a speech at the University of Buffalo for a mere $275,000. What a bargain. Daily Mail did the math and she makes about $2,777 per minute as demanded by her contracts. She’s come a long way since she left the White House “dead broke.”
She demands a “presidential glass teleprompter”. In one case, she demanded a stenographer for $1250. She handpicks the moderator, no one else is allowed on stage, and the audience can never ask questions. Oh, and she can cancel “for any reason whatsoever.”
The topic and length of her speech is solely up to her. The University was not allowed to tape the speech.
She also controls “the sets, backdrops, banners, scenery, logos, settings, etc.
They even had to pay $1000 for her stenographer’s transcription of the speech.
Check out her nine-page contract.
Hillary has given paid speeches at eight universities, four of them public institutions. She donates the money to her own charity which Hillary and Bill use to promote themselves.
Bubba’s Foundation, The Global Clinton Initiative, is, according to the NY Times, ‘a sprawling concern, supervised by a rotating board of old Clinton hands, vulnerable to distraction and threatened by conflicts of interest. It ran multimillion-dollar deficits for several years, despite vast amounts of money flowing in.’ The Foundation serves to connect corporate executives, A-listers and government officials.
The Clintons have gotten rich while their Foundation runs in the red despite enormous amounts of money being funneled into it. The Foundation has been used to support, promote, facilitate the Clintons’ personal and political ambitions.
The Times wrote that it was difficult ‘to disentangle the Clintons’ charity work from Mr. Clinton’s moneymaking ventures and Mrs. Clinton’s political future…’
It’s a charity-crony organization. As the Times wrote,…’businessmen have been able to expand the profile of their companies by working generously alongside the Clinton Foundation.’
The Clintons sell their image and their Foundation for money to finance their personal projects.
The Clintons are part of a small group of elites getting richer while the middle class dissipates. We have an aristocracy of the rich in this country. The Clintons are profiteers. Read more on this link.
She went on the Jon Stewart show this week and cackled her way through. I wonder what she gets paid for laughing at Jon Stewart’s jokes. We could use this laugh to scare the little children away on Halloween:
In the next video, Hillary explains her accomplishments as Secretary of State in under two minutes. One has to wonder what she was paid for this:
What difference…at this point…does it make?
