During the past week or so, I have read several articles or commentaries regarding the "Charity" known as the Clinton Foundation.

I thought I would list the articles here if you were interested to take a peek ....

A Harvard MBA Guy Is Out to Bring Down the Clintons

I would also like to mention that last evening, I posted these links at Twitter and they were removed within an hour.

And,

When we read about how Trump is an Islamophobic ....

SAM HUSSEINI: You’ve mentioned Trump and Cruz and Carson. I think all the names that you mentioned are Republicans that you feel are guilty of some form of Islamophobia. Rania Khalek, an Arab-American writer recently had a piece recounting that in her 2000 run, Hillary Clinton -- after there were allegations that she was taking quote-unquote Muslim money -- returned the money and refused to meet with members of the Muslim-American and Arab community. How do you respond to something like that? Is the Democratic party itself clear of Islamophobic sentiment as well?

Every American who's even a little bit politically aware suspects this.

Many claim to know this.

But no one can prove this.

I had high hopes when the Panama Papers came out, but the Clintons are either more careful than that or managed to cover up anything implicating them.

Here is additional information:

The Clinton Foundation A ‘Complete Fraud,’ Says Banker-Investor Who Blew the Whistle on GE Stock Scam
Charles K. Ortel, a former Wall Street banker and investor, blew the whistle on General Electric in 2007-2008, after tearing its financial reports apart and finding the conglomerate had been lying to its investors, fraudulently overvaluing its stock by hundreds of millions of dollars.
Fifteen months ago, Ortel began looking forensically at the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation—a politically connected philanthropic conglomerate with multiple related entities, global interests and highly questionable fundraising practices. Like GE, he said, its financials were telling as very different stories from those it “officially” reported.
In an exclusive, no-holds-barred interview, Ortel again blows the whistle. What he has discovered about the Clintons’ foundation is that it is “a complete fraud,” he alleges.

Feds Probing Clinton Foundation Ex-Board Member; The Clintons, Too? -
In a startling development related to yesterday’s program about the Clinton Foundation, news broke that Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-Virginia)—a close friend and political ally of Bill and Hillary Clinton and a former member of the foundation’s board—is the target of a joint FBI-U.S. Justice Department investigation,allegedly for taking illegal campaign contributions.
The probe speaks directly to the issue our guest, former Wall Street banker and investor Charles K. Ortel, returns to today: the highly questionable fundraising practices of the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
Ortel blew the whistle on General Electric in 2007-2008, after his own investigation of the financial records of the conglomerate revealed it had fraudulently overvalued its stock. Ortel says his own examination of the Clinton foundation’s financial records leads him to believe it is engaging in massive fraud under the guise of a philanthropic organization.
Haitian-born journalist Dady Chery, author of the recently published We Have Dared to Be Free: Haiti’s Struggle Against Occupation, has written extensively on developments in Haiti and emerging nations for News Junkie Post.She joins Ortel in discussing the Clintons’ sordid history in Haiti.

The Clinton Foundation: How $60 Million ‘Disappeared from Its Books’
Charles Ortel, a former Wall Street banker and investor whose digging into the financials of General Electric in 2007-2008 proved that the conglomerate had fraudulently overvalued its stock by hundreds of billions of dollars, has been detailing exclusively on Leid Stories major financial and accountability problems with the international philanthropic conglomerate operating as the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
Today Ortel, who has charged that the foundation is engaging in massive charity fraud, traces the “disappearance” of $60 million that allegedly was given as a “soft” political contribution to the foundation during the time that Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-Virginia), a close friend and political ally of Bill and Hillary Clinton, was a lead member of the foundation’s board.
McAuliffe is being investigated by a joint FBI-U.S. Justice Department probe looking into illegal contributions he allegedly accepted through the foundation for his own election campaign.

Hillary Clinton asked "How anybody could go bankrupt running a casino?"

And another replied "How could anybody get rich running a charity?"

another instance where a widely held belief is not actually true

the wealth of the clinton foundation is because it is a 501c(3) organization

that does not mean it is necessarily eleemosynary [charitable]

many believe the two are synonymous, but they are not

they can be - but are not necessarily - related

it's a nuanced distinction. one that allows non-profit organizations to thrive, financially


you are now returned to your regularly scheduled programming

It is the "Perception" ---- the "Fairness" that will damage Hillary.
