1. Hillary Clinton delivered to the Oil and Gas big time when she helped secure the Privatization

of the Oil Industry in Mexico while Secretary of State.

Let me say that HC is one of the best privatizers for the profiteering corporatist that lives (equates to fascism in my opinion).

They reveal the U.S. government acting as a mediator between Mexico's government and U.S. oil and gas companies seeking to cash in on a policy made possible by the behind-the-scenes efforts of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's U.S. State Department. State Department involvement was first revealed here on DeSmog, pointing to emails obtained via Freedom of Information Act and cables made available via Wikileaks.

Seems to me she was covering for herself. She was hoping to quail any further thought about helping fellow 1%ers or the newly approved audit of the Clinton Foundation. Wonder if US Oil and Gas gave a big donation to the Clinton Foundation for here actions in Mexico?


This Thread should be cross posted to the Iowa Group. If you have time, read my reply #4 in that group. It is about the difference in policy and plans between Sanders and Clinton.

2. "...still way better than any of the republicans..."

Isn't that incredibly sad though? That they have to convince people into voting for Hillary by always saying that?
I mean, the bar is literally at the bottom. ANYTHING is better than republicans.

3. Fortunately, the choice isn't hillary or the republicans.

Though many hillary supporters will tell you otherwise. They adhere to that hostage-holding meme for all their worth.

4. Oh?

 

"They gave me money too? Hard to keep track of these penny ante contributions. Guess I'll have to find out which oil giant it was and have Bill fill up the family Ford there one time."

5. Why did they make this donation to Hillary instead of Bernie?

Because Bernie would reject it since he will do no favors for them!

6. Hillary is so scripted.

Here she is America, "Madam President"! The issues are secondary, where Hillary gets her campaign funds is secondary. What you only need to know is that she will be the first woman POTUS and that the Republicans are worse. Smile, wave, it's history in the making!

9. Is she unaware that KSA runs OPEC?

Nobody is fooled by her feigned innocence.

From Mother Jones article in May 2015:

In 2011, the State Department cleared an enormous arms deal: Led by Boeing, a consortium of American defense contractors would deliver $29 billion worth of advanced fighter jets to Saudi Arabia, despite concerns over the kingdom's troublesome human rights record. In the years before Hillary Clinton became secretary of state, Saudi Arabia had contributed $10 million to the Clinton Foundation, and just two months before the jet deal was finalized, Boeing donated $900,000 to the Clinton Foundation, according to an International Business Times investigation released Tuesday.

The Saudi transaction is just one example of nations and companies that had donated to the Clinton Foundation seeing an increase in arms deals while Hillary Clinton oversaw the State Department. IBT found that between October 2010 and September 2012, State approved $165 billion in commercial arms sales to 20 nations that had donated to the foundation, plus another $151 billion worth of Pentagon-brokered arms deals to 16 of those countries—a 143 percent increase over the same time frame under the Bush Administration. The sales boosted the military power of authoritarian regimes such as Qatar, Algeria, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, and Oman, which, like Saudi Arabia, had been criticized by the department for human rights abuses.

The Clinton Foundation is innocent as well because it's all perfectly legal.

10. "The Clinton Foundation is innocent as well because it's all perfectly legal."

As the French writer Emile Zola said, "The law is an ass."

11. Hillary doesn't know who donates to her campaign?

And I'm a retired kamikaze pilot.

Hillary has such integrity that it doesn't influence her like it does Brand X politicians?

And scarlet is not a bright shade of red.

12. Another reason to Feel the Bern: to create an endangered species out of the

Arrogant, deceptive politician. Without Bernie, the Democratic primary would have degenerated into a slanderfest. It's also possible that this 'Social-Democrat' could save us from the following fate:

"All political parties eventually die, choking on their own lies." - Mark Twain.
