Reasons to say NO to "Hillary 2016"

   "(Hillary) Clinton offered a message that the collected plutocrats found reassuring. What the bankers heard her to say was just what they would hope for from a prospective presidential candidate..."

Troubling Number of Hillary’s Superdelegates are Actual Lobbyists



This is a living document and will be updated as required. It is highly useful to connect donors and donations to her campaign and Foundation to her actions and favors done: arms deals, fracking, Monsanto, KeystoneXL...she's hired KeystoneXL and Monsanto lobbyists to work on her campaign!
 Too many are starting to declare Hillary for president in 2016. Considering that when you voted for Obama you got a corporate-owned puppet strongly interested in forwarding their goals, WHY DO YOU IMAGINE HILLARY WOULD BE ANY DIFFERENT???
 A quick review: 
 2013: Obama To Leno: 'There Is No Spying On Americans'
 2011: Obama administration had restrictions on NSA reversed in 2011
 2012: 3rd Quarter Corporate Profits Reach Record High-Worker Pay Hits Record Low
2013:  Obama Told Aides He's 'Really Good At Killing People,' New Book 'Double Down' Claims 
2008: “I would call my attorney general in and review every single executive order issued by George Bush and overturn those laws or executive decisions that I feel violate the constitution,” said candidate Obama.
Plus Obama using drones to murder United States citizens in foreign countries with whom we are not at war, destroying entire sections of the US Constitution in the process, as well as twice signing and sending lawyers to defend the unConstitutional NDAA section 1021 allowing the indefinite detention of anyone anywhere with neither trial nor representation, allowing DHS to declare they can seize personal electronics anywhere along the border and up to 100 miles inland on a "hunch", destroying more sections of the Constitution...harm to the Constitution is a specific Trend of this administration.

And you thought you were voting for a democrat. 
Now Hillary? 
Let's review a little about Bill:
-Worked with Larry Summers and Rubin; ended Glass-Steagall which opened the way for banksters to create the 2008 crash/bailout

Bill Clinton defends repeal of Glass-Steagall
-Signed NAFTA which outsourced an estimated 1,000,000 American jobs and gave corporations legal power against lawsuits
-Is now extremely chummy with the Bush disaster family who are behind much of the neocon-related trouble we are continuing to experience
-Now says to "embrace" the massively destructive KeystoneXL pipeline:
A pipeline which would save the Koch Brothers some $2 billion per year versus the Venezuelan crude they currently purchase, and it would add $45 billion to each of their portfolios:

so wtf is up with that? I note that "representatives" both "democratic" and "republican" own up to half a million dollars investments in the pipeline and the tarsands which will feed it, one of them Susan Rice, appointed to high office by Obama:
Roll call for representatives with financial investment in the tarsands and TransCanada's KeystoneXL  
I would be VERY interested to learn if the Clintons have any financial or peripheral investment in these issues.
EDIT Feb. 20 2015, July 17 2015: 

Clinton's top campaign financiers are linked to Big Oil, natural gas and the Keystone pipeline.

So the Clintons are in the Koch brothers' pockets. Back to the original post:
This just in: The KeystoneXL pipeline will make the Koch brothers the two richest persons in the entire world....

"Secretary of State Clinton, whose friend and former staffer Paul Elliot is a lobbyist for TransCanada, had worked behind the scenes to ease the way for commercial exploitation of this, the world's highest-carbon-emitting oil,  53% of which is owned by America's Koch brothers. (Koch Industries owns 63% of the tar sands, and the Koch brothers own 86% of Koch Industries; Elaine Marshall, who is the widow of the son of the deceased Koch partner J. Howard Marshall, owns the remaining 14% of Koch Industries.)
David Goldwyn, who was former Secretary Clinton's Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy Affairs, is yet another  lobbyist for TransCanada. So, TransCanada has two of Hillary Clinton's friends working for it. Elliot and Goldwyn worked with Clinton's people to guide them on selecting a petroleum industry contractor (not an environmental firm or governmental agency) to prepare the required environmental impact statement for the proposed pipeline. 

Secretary Clinton's State Department allowed the environmental impact statement on the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline to be performed by a petroleum industry contractor that was chosen by the company that was proposing to build and own the pipeline, TransCanada."

A former Keystone XL lobbyist just joined Team Hillary

"...more than $1 million in payments to Mr. Clinton by a Canadian bank and major shareholder in the Keystone XL oil pipeline around the time the project was being debated in the State Department." 
New Book, ‘Clinton Cash,’ Questions Foreign Donations to Foundation


What about the Fracking lobby?  

"A trove of secret documents details the US government's global push for shale gas."

Where does Hillary Clinton stand on fracking?

"Under her leadership, the State Department worked closely with energy companies to spread fracking around the globe..."



What about pushing US weapons sales around the world while in the State Department? 
"Overseas weapons sales by the United States totaled $66.3 billion last year, or more than three-quarters of the global arms market, valued at $85.3 billion in 2011. Russia was a distant second, with $4.8 billion in deals." HERE 

So Hillary is out there pushing weapons sales, especially to countries which donate to her Foundation? Absolutely. The Saudis have donated up to $25 million to the Foundation since its inception. Hillary Clinton began at the state department in 2009. The state department until from 2010 and 2014 sold the Saudis some $100 BILLION dollars in weapons, which they are now using to wage a proxy war for the US against Yemen. Sure, the democrats are against war and war profiteering and call out their peers when they do it.

    And Walmart?

    Clinton Remained Silent As Wal-Mart Fought Unions

    "In six years as a member of the Wal-Mart board of directors, between 1986 and 1992, Hillary Clinton remained silent as the world's largest retailer waged a major campaign against labor unions seeking to represent store workers." 

    Here’s Walmart’s Internal Guide To Fighting Unions And Monitoring Workers

    "Leaked internal documents show that Walmart’s strategy for fighting to keep its workers from forming unions includes instructing managers to report suspicious activity and warning workers that joining OUR Walmart could hurt them."  

    Wal-Mart Has $76 Billion in Undisclosed Overseas Tax Havens


    “'As a shareholder and director of our company, I’m always proud of Wal-Mart and what we do and the way we do it better than anybody else,' current Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said in a speech in 1990, when she was first lady of Arkansas." ~Via Truthdig

    Lies? Unethical behaviour? 
    Watergate-Era Judiciary Chief of Staff: Hillary Clinton Fired For Lies, Unethical Behavior  
    “Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

    "Poor people, especially those of color, are worth nothing to corporations and private contractors if they are on the street.

This use of the bodies of the poor to make money for corporations fuels the system of neoslavery that defines our prison system."

    The above article is a superb and extremely important read. There is far too much I'd wish to quote here; it would take up the majority of this page!

    How Can Black People Trust Hillary Clinton After the 2008 Campaign?


    Hillary is rooted in conservatism and is proud to have been a Goldwater Girl. Goldwater strongly opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. 


    What about the PNAC/neocon/Military-Industrial Complex's plans? 
    "...Maine’s independent Sen. Angus King said: 'This is the most astounding and most astoundingly disturbing hearing that I’ve been to since I’ve been here. You guys have essentially rewritten the Constitution today.' Former Bush DOJ lawyer Jack Goldsmith – himself an ardent advocate of broad presidential powers – was at the hearing and noted that nobody even knows against whom this endless war is being waged: 'Amazingly, there is a very large question even in the Armed Services Committee about who the United States is at war against and where, and how those determinations are made.'”

    How about the Clintons cozying up to the Bush disaster family?
    If you browse the articles on this blog you will see items against the Bush disaster family and their neocon agenda, one still being forwarded by "democrat" Obama. Hillary is to take money as the center-piece at a fund-raiser for the Bush family Carlyle Group. Note that through the Carlyle Group, the Bushes own a 2/3ds majority share in Booz Allen Hamilton, the $5 billion contracting agency ($23 million contracts with the Saudi navy, for example) at which Edward Snowden discovered the NSA misconduct against the people of this country. 
    Hillary Clinton to speak to Carlyle Group investors
    The Carlyle Group Has Made $2 Billion Off Of Booz Allen
    Snowden Says He Took Booz Allen Job Specifically to Gather NSA Secrets 
    This of course opens a can of worms: Do the Bush family have direct access to NSA tech and data through their majority share in Booz Allen Hamilton?
    Bill Clinton and friends:
    One will note the Saudis as very close Bush family friends; Hillary is becoming one as well: 
    Hillary's $500K Saudi jewelry 
    Considering that the Saudis are involved in a recent potential $10 billion arms deal, one blog wondered if this were a bribe toward a vote to go to war with Syria, which the Saudis have said they'd fund...(!)
    The following deals occurred during Hillary's State Department tenure, totalling some $100 billion:  
    2010: US secures record $60 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia 
    2011: With $30 Billion Arms Deal, U.S. Bolsters Saudi Ties 
    2013: U.S. near $10 billion arms deal with Israel, Saudi Arabia, UAE  

    Clinton's foundation got millions from Saudis, Gates

    Hillary also worked at the Rose Law Firm which represented Monsanto. Obama appointed a Monsanto Executive to the FDA! 
    Monsanto and Hillary Clinton's Redemptive First Act as Secretary of State
    And how about an enormous donation from Goldman Sachs?

    "That's also not taking into account how much Goldman contributed to Obama cabinet member Hillary Clinton ($415,595.63 inflation adjusted), which was itself almost three times as much as Bush received as well."



    Goldman Sachs Gives Hillary Clinton Almost Half A Million Dollars In Less Than A Week

    Chelsea Clinton's Husband Launching His Own Hedge Fund With "Two Guys From Goldman"

    Does Hillary's Silence on Iran Deal Show Neocon Pull on Her Presidential Run?

    Goldman Sachs making the US like Greece, Italy, Spain...

    And if you imagine she'd shun those who took trillions of our tax dollars and put us into a Great Recession, you'd be very wrong:

    "But (Hillary) Clinton offered a message that the collected plutocrats found reassuring, according to accounts offered by several attendees, declaring that the banker-bashing so popular within both political parties was unproductive and indeed foolish. Striking a soothing note on the global financial crisis, she told the audience, in effect: We all got into this mess together, and we’re all going to have to work together to get out of it. What the bankers heard her to say was just what they would hope for from a prospective presidential candidate: Beating up the finance industry isn’t going to improve the economy—it needs to stop. And indeed Goldman’s Jim O’Neill, the laconic Brit who heads the bank’s asset management division, introduced Clinton by saying how courageous she was for speaking at the bank. (Brave, perhaps, but also well-compensated: Clinton’s minimum fee for paid remarks is $200,000).

    Certainly, Clinton offered the money men—and, yes, they are mostly men—at Goldman’s HQ a bit of a morale boost. 'It was like, ‘Here’s someone who doesn’t want to vilify us but wants to get business back in the game,’ said at an attendee. 'Like, maybe here’s someone who can lead us out of the wilderness.'”

    (Emphasis mine.)

    Not so oddly, Bill Clinton repealed Glass-Steagall, helping usher in the 2008 bankster bailout and crash, yet Hillary is cozying up to them all! Sense the Trend?

    Clinton’s Advisory Team Pressed for Wall Street Deregulation, Documents Show

    "Newly released documents from the Bill Clinton presidential library show two separate attempts by advisers, in 1995 and 1997, to hurry the president into supporting a repeal of Wall Street regulation. Clinton responded to the pressure with the Financial Services Modernization Act in 1999. The legislation, which tore down the Depression-era Glass-Steagall banking rules, has been blamed with helping to bring about the near-collapse of the banking industry in 2008 and creating the subsequent economic trouble that has cost taxpayers billions."

    The Clintons and Their Banker Friends, 1992-2016

    Clintons to Meet With Foundation’s Big Donors Next Month (2014)

    "The most generous donors to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation will convene on June 6 at the Goldman Sachs headquarters in Lower Manhattan...

    Steve Bing, a Hollywood producer; the media mogul Haim Saban; and the hedge fund billionaire Marc Lasry have given generously to the Clintons’ political campaigns and their philanthropic causes. The foundation also receives millions of dollars in support from overseas donors who are barred from contributing to United States political campaigns, including Frank Giustra, a Canadian businessman, and Victor Pinchuk, a Ukrainian steel magnate."

    What about the Clinton Global Initiative? 

    "Before joining the Clinton Foundation, Harrison spent 22 years on Wall Street as an investment banker and attorney. He joined Goldman Sachs and Co. in 1987, where he became a partner in the firm's investment banking division and global co-head of its Communications, Media, and Entertainment group."

    Who’s Not on the Clinton Foundation Donor List? (2008)

    "The Washington Post points out that the governments of Saudi Arabia (more than $10 million), Norway ($5 million to $10 million), Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei, Oman ($1 million to $5 million apiece), Italy and Jamaica ($50,000 to $100,000 apiece) all ponied up. So did billionaires and business interest groups from Israel, China, India and Ethiopia, the former deputy prime minister of Lebanon, the son-in-law of the former prime minister of Ukraine and many, many more.

    The Blackwater Training Center threw in $10,000 to $25,000. The Post notes that military contractor Blackwater’s controversial deal with the State Department is up for renewal next year.

    (Aside: The Blackwater donation to the Clinton Foundation was in 2008. Hillary Clinton began her tenure at the State Department in 2009. Blackwater's contract was renewed on September 1, 2009.) HERE

    There’s also money from businesses at the center of the ongoing financial crisis, like Citigroup’s Citi Foundation ($1 million to $5 million), AIG ($500,000 to $1 million), Lehman Brothers ($100,000 to $250,000) and Goldman Sachs ($50,000 to $100,000). (Disclosure: The Sandler Foundation, ProPublica’s chief funders, are listed as giving $100,000 to $250,000.)"

    BLACKWATER!?!?!? The group who committed war crimes in 2007?

    Clinton Foundation’s Deep Financial Ties to Ukrainian Oligarch Revealed

    "Mr. Shoen id his lobbying was unrelated to the donations. 'We were not seeking to use any leverage or any connections or anything of the sort relating to the foundation,' he said."

    (Sort of like how Biden got his son on the board of a company in Ukraine...which is a hot point between Russia and the US in pursuit of natural gas, oil, and oil pipelines...meaning, a war zone.)

    181 Clinton Foundation donors who lobbied Hillary's State Department

    Hillary Clinton Approved Russian Uranium Deal After $2 Million Donation to Clinton Foundation

    Democrats Embrace Citizens United in Defense of Clinton

    * "While Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, Bill Clinton was paid $2.5 million by 13 corporations that lobbied the State Department. Ten of the firms paid him in the same three-month reporting period that they were lobbying Hillary Clinton's agency. Several of them received State Department contracts, worth a total of almost $40 million.

    * Hillary Clinton switched her position to back a controversial U.S.-Colombia free trade agreement as millions of dollars flowed into her foundation from an oil company operating in Colombia, and from that company's founder. Amid reports of violence against Colombian unionists, she also certified Colombia's human rights record, thereby releasing U.S. aid to the Colombian military.

    * Hillary Clinton's State Department delivered contracts and a prestigious human rights award to a technology firm that donated to the Clinton Foundation — despite allegations from human rights groups that the firm sold technology to the Chinese government that helped the regime commit human rights violations."

    Clinton Foundation donors include dozens of media organizations, individuals


    What about regarding the NSA's illegal spying upon American citizens and Edward Snowden's revelations?

    "Did Secretary of State Clinton know that such massive spying on the American people was going on and, if not, why isn’t she grateful that Snowden helped to enlighten her? With her scurrilous attacks on Snowden, Hillary Clinton is either a fool or a liar."

    Speaking of the Bush family and the neocon agenda, her recent statements sound like talking points taken directly from the PNAC (a neocon/conservative think-tank) : "In a recent op-ed in The Washington Post, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used a review of Henry Kissinger’s latest book, 'World Order,' to lay out her vision for 'sustaining America’s leadership in the world.'”

    And now, from the PNAC: "The PNAC's stated goal is 'to promote American global leadership.'[1] Fundamental to the PNAC were the view that 'American leadership is good both for America and for the world'".

    Much less her worship of "New World Order" monger Henry Kissinger, a monster if there ever were one.

    Reconsidering the Legacy of Bill Clinton: When the Democrats Turned Neoliberal

    "...we must mention what were likely the two most important actions/disasters of the Clinton administration in the economic realm, each of which has played a direct role in the continuation and indeed strengthening of Reaganomics and the increasing stranglehold that the GOP/Tea Party has over fiscal policy. First was the Repeal of the Depression era Glass-Steagall Act that had separated commercial and investment banking. That repeal of course led directly to the crash of 2008 from which millions of people on this country have never recovered and likely never will."
