Clinton Foundation gives tiny fraction of $2 billion in revenue to veterans groups

by Rowan Scarborough  |  published on June 22, 2016

The Clinton Foundation has collected more than $2 billion in revenue since it formed — but has given only the tiniest fraction to veterans groups, instead preferring to focus on international causes and in-house operations that provide far more control and less transparency.

Meanwhile, a separate private charity, the Clinton Family Foundation, has donated about $100,000 to veterans groups, according to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Rival Donald Trump’s charitable giving to veterans has come under scrutiny since he promised to raise millions for the cause at a January rally in Iowa. Reports questioned whether he followed through, forcing him to release a list of organizations and dollar amounts he gave — including a $1 million check of his own.

Far less attention has been given to the Clintons’ charitable giving to veterans through their own organizations, and particularly the main Clinton Foundation and its close affiliate, the Clinton Global Initiative.

    Could it be because they can get NOTHING back from the Veterans? No payoffs, no cushy/pricy “speaking fees”, no free vacations, etc.? Could it be that the “Clinton Foundation” is nothing more than laundering money just for the benefit of the Clintons? They would not buy a cup of coffee for a homeless person on the street unless they get money or free press in return. And SHE had the temerity of pounding Trump because he rounded $5.6M up to “nearly $6M”. She says all Trump’s books on business “end at Chapter 11”: Well hers should end like her political/public career; in a conviction and jail time.

    According to God, if you give to be seen of men, you have your reward. I guess that i what BOTH of them are after anyway.
    They don’t give out of a generous heart. They give for what they can receive.

    The Clinton foundations are money laundering operations. Hillary and Bill sell access and government secrets. The payoff goes into their charitable foundations. It’s likely the biggest recipients of the foundation’s charity are the Clintons-Bill, Hillary and Chelsea.

  • bobnstuff

    The Clinton Foundation get it’s money from all over the world and gives it away all over the world. Yes the get money from Muslim s and give money to Muslim nations. They are an international fund. Trump collected money for Vets and sat on it till he was forced to hand it out. My question is why are we looking for charity for our Vets in the first place. Why is it that we haven’t forced the country that created them and their problem to take care of them. Vets don’t need hand outs they need justice.

  • Rodney Steward

    I’m sure that the small amount of that 2 billion $$$ probably came from 1 of the 4 terrorist countries that donated to her foundation of death! And everybody does remember that the butt ugly Clinton daughter did marry the son of George Soros, and I wonder which one of the grandkids have the 3 – 6’s on the head!!

    • bobnstuff

      I’m sure you are a very pretty person. I guess you want only Trump pretty people in our world.

      • bert shaw

        As a former United States Marine and Viet Nam combat Veteran ( two tours ) don’t want one dime of that c#^t clintons blood money and bob GO STUFF IT AZZHOLE

        • Rodney Steward

          AMEN Brother!! Thanks for your service!!

        • bobnstuff

          So you are happy getting handouts? Don’t you deserve better. I believe that if you lay your life down for your country you shouldn’t need to go hat in hand for help. You deserve better. I believe that if you served our country the very least you should have is a Medicaid cared that lets you get medical service anywhere. Also we need to pay a living wage to those serving. If you have a family of four you can get food stamps until you become a Captain. We need to honor our servicemen not give them crumbs off the table. It’s the government that should be taking care of you not some charity.

          • Worried Vet

            You make a good point about vets. I have seen thus first hand at a VA hospital. Now my point is that that foundation is a front for pay to play period. They have given very little back and it’s amazing how many favors are being given by Hillary after a huge donation. The records are public because of the FOIA so I don’t get how any sane person can defend Clinton? We need to open our eyes and stop being so blind. The government propaganda machine is alive and well In the msm. It’s obvious their In tank for liberals and Hillary. When the media starts pushing the gun control agenda before the murdered are even buried. When the DOJ from orders from Obama to redact the call from the killer because it don’t fit their agenda that should be proof enough. They lie and deflect the truth better than the Nazi’s did before and during WWII. That should be a lesson everyone is taught in school. It’s a shame our history is being deleted by the left because it’s not In their agenda. We should learn from history so we don’t make the same mistakes. Right now history is repeating itself when the government controls most the media and the department of justice. We need to wake up and pay attention before its to late.

          • bobnstuff

            How much power do you think the sec of state has when it comes to money, it’s very limited just like the power of a single senator. You can’t really do a pay to play unless you have real power. For the last three years Hillary has had no power. If you want to know who is getting the cash look at the place where the money goes out. Ryan didn’t want to become speaker of the house because he lost the power to give money away. Forget what the media tells you and look at where the real power is. Who approves the spending? Who passes the laws. The power to declare wars isn’t the Presidents, he can’t spend any money Hillary is being blamed for the stand down order but the military doesn’t take orders from the Sec. of State, they get orders from the Sec. of Defense. If you really want to know who is to blame look at where the money comes from and go from there.

          • Worried Vet

            Well its taking about the foundation. She gave away the uranium rights to a donor, she gave away high position to a donor there are many examples of the foundation getting donations for favors. It will come out if the feds are honest but with Lynch in charge I doubt it. Hillary kept a private email to avoid FOIA requests period. She has hidden stuff for decades. They for the most part are crooks and thieves. These lobbyists should be outlawed. Let the politicians do their jobs instead of being bribed first. These bribes is one reason the debt is out of control. Most of these bs laws don’t help the people who vote for that politician. If I walked up and bribed a cop to avoid a ticket I would go to jail and if the cop accepted we both could go to jail. Our system with the pay for play should be against the law. We allow this and we shouldn’t. These crooks will destroy this country soon enough if we keep Letting them go unchecked.

          • bobnstuff

            The uranium deal was proven to be false, go check. Do you believe that the person giving the bribe should be punished, if so Trump would be in jail since he brags about the money he has spent to get special favors.

          • Worried Vet

            No it wasn’t false. The Russian business got control of 20% of the uranium of the USA. Not a got idea. Yes all of them taking bribe it offering one including lobbyists should be In jail. Congress especially for having to take bribes to work for us. They get paid very well to do the job we sent them to do

            You might want to read this. Clinton couldn’t have effected the sale if she had wanted to, it wasn’t her call.

          • Donnie Buchanan

            What about those of us who had our lives taken by being %100 combat disabled?? We didn’t get a COLA (Cost of Living Adjustment) because Obama used the money to resettle Muslim Afgan interpreters into the USA.

          • bobnstuff

            Sorry you are mad at the wrong person, it our good friend Ryan and his group that controls the money. They give the raise to their friends at Exxon. All spending must come through congress and start in the house.

          • Worried Vet

            The president has to sign off on the budget if you can call it a budget. To me it’s a spending spree of tax payer dollars. Obama demanded his trillion dollar budget but Ryan and the other idiots passed it

          • bobnstuff

            The President gets to say yes or no but can’t really control what’s in it. It’s congress that controls the purse strings.

      • Rodney Steward

        Well, I am a pretty person, and my wife says I’m Scrumptious, but you’d feel better with the death trail in this country of the Clintons, that’s what you’ll get my friend, better wise up! And by the way, are U purdy!

        • bobnstuff

          My point is attacking Hillary’s daughter because of how she looks is a pretty low thing to do. Attack the mother for what she stands for but get real.

          • Rodney Steward

            An apple don’t fall from a tree, she’s bragged about the death of Justice Scalia saying now that he’s gone we can now have gun control! YEP, she’s a BUTT UGLY POS!

          • bobnstuff

            Sorry but Hillary doesn’t brag that way and beside Scalia wasn’t all that much a gun rights justice. He had said that there are limits to the second amendment. Most of the gun control bills put up would have passed his test.

          • Elaine

            Oh, no-o-o-o-o-o …. Hillarious would NEVER, EVER resort to attacking someone because of the way they look. She only says such sweet, loving things as calling special needs children “f***king reeeetards”. And that is a fact.

          • bobnstuff

            When has Hillary ever said anything about a persons looks? Most politicians say nothing about what people look like and most don’t even call names. I can only think of one person running for office that lives on calling people names and making fun of how they look.

          • Elaine

            People who are ugly on the inside, no matter how beautiful their face is, are ugly. Period. No amount of makeup or fine facial features can take away the blackness of the person’s soul.

          • Rodney Steward

            You’re right she don’t brag about things, she just lies like he$$. It wasn’t Hellary bragging, it was her POS DAUGHTER!!

          • bobnstuff

            You just keep digging yourself into a hole here. What kind of person Hillary is or isn’t make no difference, name calling and making fun of a persons looks is something you stop doing after junior high. Grown ups don’t call names or make fun of people.

          • Rodney Steward

            You mean to tell me that it doesn’t matter what kind of person Hellary is or isn’t, and she’s running for President! No wonder people say being a Dem. is a sickness, you’re proof!!

          • bobnstuff

            No I’m say grow up, adults don’t make fun of peoples looks and name calling just shows you have run out of arguments.

          • Rodney Steward

            I don’t really care, UGLY is like STUPID, can’t be FIXED!!

          • Sharon Dye

            That is what I say. Stop attacking people for their looks. It is not kind.

          • Elaine

            Well of course, attacking people for being mentally handicapped is SO much “kinder”. Jeez.

          • Sharon Dye

            I’m sorry, Elaine. I am new to this and did not realize I was speaking to a specific person. I was speaking generally to everybody. I guess I get tired of all the comments about people that are derogatory and has nothing to do with their ethics and accomplishments.

          • Elaine

            I completely understand.

      • Donnie Buchanan

        If you think she is pretty, get your eyes examined.

        • bobnstuff

          You don’t pick on some ones look, they have no control over them. People who drop that low do it because they have no real defense so the go to name calling. It’s a low blow.

  • Worried Vet

    You won’t see this on the msm. This would make Hillary look bad. It’s disgusting the media is so in the tank for queen Hillary. If we allow her to win she will be worse than Stalin. She will write executive orders to do what she wants she will stack the supreme court where this country is doomed. It’s not looking good to beat her when Trumps mouth is his own worst enemy. It’s also bot good when he isn’t raising money Hillary has a war chest and a war machine. It seems no one understands it was a down hill fight from day one. That means we have to fight harder, raise more money and get out the vote. These people who are pissed because their guy didn’t win is going to elect Hillary. This spoiled child whining attitude will destroy this country and us along with it.

  • Robert4709

    Newsflash Hillary, We Veterans are not stupid in the least. Your $2 Billion will not buy our votes. It’s only a fraction of $2 Billion you pretend to give anyway, where did you get it? From the Arabs I suspect.

    • Worried Vet

      She has received hundreds of millions From Muslim countries.

      • Rodney Steward

        BINGO!!!
