    Clinton has quite the nerve to call out her opponent, successful business mogul Donnie Trump, on his amazing Trump university, when she and her raping husband have been involved in a university money making scheme for many years.

    Oh sweet, sweet irony. :D

    "In April 2015, Bill Clinton was forced to abruptly resign from his lucrative perch as honorary chancellor of Laureate Education, a for-profit college company. The reason for Clinton’s immediate departure: Clinton Cash revealed, and Bloomberg confirmed, that Laureate funneled Bill Clinton $16.46 million over five years while Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. pumped at least $55 million to a group run by Laureate’s founder and chairman, Douglas Becker, a man with strong ties to the Clinton Global Initiative. Laureate has donated between $1 million and $5 million (donations are reported in ranges, not exact amounts) to the Clinton Foundation."

    The Clinton machine is all about corruption and influence. Always has been.

    Remember Hilary's brilliant buy into cattle futures?

    Vince knew...he died for his sins.

    They should both be behind bars for the rest of their natural lives, however that will never happen.

    Let's see... two articles dredged up from 2015, but in any case at least we can see the Clintons' taxes, the source of some of the information in the old stories, whereas Trump refuses to release his because he's being audited (and I might add I wonder why).

    I've been audited half a dozen times. It's not a crime to audited by the IRS. In every case, they actually found in my favor after the audit.

    Trump has already stated he will release his personal tax forms after the audit is over.

    The Clintons have their foundation to hide their ill-gotten gain.

    I don't believe they personally own the house they live in or the cars they ride in...as it's much more convenient to just use the assets that belong to the foundation you control - giving you personal deniability.

    The linked Bloomberg article DOES NOT "confirm" the assertion in bold. Indeed, the Bloomberg article indicates nothing untoward about being paid (not "funneled") as honorary chancellor of Laureate Education. Here is the entire Bloomberg text on Laureate:

    Since 2010, Bill Clinton brought in just short of $16.5 million for his role as honorary chancellor of Laureate Education, a for-profit college company. He left the position earlier this year weeks after his wife launched her campaign.

    In 2014, Bill Clinton made $9 million off of paid speeches and $6.4 million in consulting fees. Of that, $4.3 million came from Laureate and another $2.1 million from GEMS Education, a Dubai-based company that runs preschool and K-12 programs. He made less from those two gigs in previous years – $5.6 million in 2013 and $4.7 million in 2012. In 2011, the former president was paid $2.5 million by Laureate, $500,000 by GEMS and $100,000 by Teneo Holdings, a firm co-founded by former Clinton aide Doug Band.​

    Please correct or retract this.

    The Clinton's have perfected their game. Having bought off anyone that might interfere with their toady personal appearance for pay scheme, Hillary is licking her chops in anticipation. Like a vampire her fangs will do the rest.

    It's my understanding that Bubba's adventures on Underage Island, having frequently flown over in Pedophile Pete's plane, were consensual carnal sexcapades. It's highly likely Hillary was relieved that he was out of her sight for some time.

    For the short memories, the heads in sand and the young 'uns:


    "Herd Instincts."

    "Is Hillary Clinton a better commodities trader than George Soros, or did she just get really, really lucky? Both explanations leave something to be desired."

    "As far as we know, there are no indicia for commodities-trading fraud. So we took it upon ourselves to develop a checklist of fraud indicators that would apply to a broad range of financial trickery. We are confident that any investment activity that scores high on our test merits a red flag. We have rated the likely legitimacy of Mrs. Clinton’s activities on a scale ranging from 1 (highly likely) to 10 (highly unlikely) for each often criteria."

    This doesn't seem any different to Trumps, or any other politicians the world over.

    Nonsense. Belief that all politicians are corrupt or bribe to influence is what leads you to compromise principles and accept criminal behavior in government.

    Most politicians do not commit crimes for a living. Clinton is of course the exception.

    With Trump's coloring, wouldn't it look better to put his face on Chewbacca? Let's see that.

    What kind of misdirection is this? Wrong Costume, no surprise really, that's what misdirection is all about. And looks like they photo-shopped out the orange hair. To be fair to the Donald, these days he's looking less like a Darth, and more like a Dweeb. :D

    Found in the Trump University Recruitment Pamphlet: Art of the Deal Tip no. 82: Here's a savvy move- You can speak like a racist, but not be a racist when involved in court proceedings as a means of gaining an advantage against the judge.

    Gee I guess Trump is a genius. :rolleyes: ...Wait a minute, the judge is still presiding? :eek:

    I heard a report yesterday that stated that this judge has basically bent over backwards granting Mr Trump continuations and such. But you'll note anyone who disagrees with The Donald, including Federal Judges are either 1)mean, 2)nasty, 3)unfair, 4) a slut, 5) ugly, 6) sleazy, 7)bad, very bad, 8)racist (the old reverse racist ploy- you're the racist not me, and not because of anything you've done, just your ethnicity) or 8) incompetent.

    Trump has argued that he cannot release his tax forms because of his audit, which is gold-plated jive.

    That said, you're right. An audit is not a sign that Trump has financial problems.

    As for the Clinton, their foundation's financial arrangements are complicated structures to minimize their risk and enhance their financial stability, just like Trump.

    He's just copied from the Breitbart article, which makes the same claim.

    It passed.

    Yet eyebrows remain raised.

    1 or 2 shots at commodities trading and sudden windfall profits for Hillary.

    These guys should both be in prison.

    Hillary funnels money from the State Department to The Laureate, who pays Bill as their "honorary chancellor."

    Why aren't these two in prison yet?

    Smells of desperation. Let's pivot to talking about Trump accusing US soldiers of stealing cash in Iraq. Twice.
