Hillary's Regrets (Redux)

By Chris Rossini

Yesterday, we found out that Hillary was bummed that as Secretary of State she didn't have access to 25% of the federal budget to shower onto the world's dictators as "foreign aid".

This may be one reason that Hillary didn't have enough money (for her satisfaction). The Blaze reports:
The State Department has lost track of approximately $6 billion used to pay its contractors, according to a report from the department’s Inspector General.
$6 Billion....poof!

Where did it go? No one knows.

I bet if it landed in your pockets, you'd definitely know.

Are you ready for the explanation for Boobus Americanus? Here is comes:
An inability to file paperwork properly and a “lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years,” State Department Inspector General Steve Linick said in a “management alert” made public Thursday. (emphasis added)
Now, don't get me wrong; the moment that $6 Billion was forced out of our pockets, it turned into complete waste anyway. However, the least that the looters could do is entertain us, and tell us where it went. At least have the courtesy to let us know which greasy cronies got the money, so that we know who specifically to despise.

Such a courtesy is now too much trouble. Too much paperwork.

  1. Looks like the Democrats have solved their campaign finance problems for a few years more.

  2. The America Hustle, McCutcheon Walmart Koch Bro's, Raymond Tusk vs Yuri Gagarin

    Supreme Court ruling in McCutcheon v. FEC
    The Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down limits in federal law on the
    overall campaign contributions the biggest
    individual donors may make to candidates, political parties and political action committees.

    Koch said "the fundamental concepts of dignity, respect, equality before the law and personal freedom
    are under attack by the nation's own government. Koch states that he "believe that cronyism is
    nothing more than welfare for the rich and powerful, and should be abolished.
    "Instead of fostering a system that enables people to help themselves, America
    is now saddled with a system that destroys value, raises costs, hinders
    innovation and relegates millions of citizens to a life of poverty, dependency and hopelessness

    --something structural

    I suggested that five years ago that WMT would be having problems in five years.

    Rigging the game whereby you have Walmart suing Visa for antitrust. Not too much different than
    having a nomenclature under Stalin. You have an elite class of entitled individuals intimately
    connected as beneficiaries to the establishment.

    If you want to see a fictional representation of this watch house of cards on Netflix and
    realize that the fictional character is Warren Buffet a member of the American nomenclature.

    As to Walmart

    Our business operations are subject to numerous risks, factors and uncertainties,
    domestically and internationally, which are outside our control ...
    These factors include ... changes in the amount of payments made under the Supplement
    [al] Nutrition Assistance Plan and other public assistance plans, changes in the eligibility
    requirements of public assistance plans, ...

    The US economic miracle, use this term loosely, can be attributed to several main phases.

    Colonial growth of Europe in the new worlds;
    Unlimited Growth Westward; monopoly in
    manufacturing after WW II destruction;
    Post War II Technology bounty peaking in 1970s NASA,
    Implementation of the internet... poorly allocated capital but some capital struck the mark
    similar to the railway boom of the past, and the end of of the boom bust cycle you have something
    to show for it

    The US economic miracle use this term loosely can be attributed to several main phases.

    Momentum from these drivers has run out.

  3. Republican ethic-hawk Daryll Issa is on it.
    He will get to the bottom of this God.

  4. Hillary can’t remember if she bet the 6 billion on Arkansas real estate or cattle futures.

  5. Wasn't a lack of internal control one of Bill's big problems too?

  6. Connections: Coincidentally, ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton earned $200,000 speaking at The Carlyle Group's annual investor meeting. Carlyle co-founder David Rubenstein later interviewed Hillary, offering her a private equity underwriter (PEU) job.

    Her words: At her Joint Civilian Service Award ceremony Hillary Clinton said:

    "We have pioneered a nimbler, more innovative, more effective approach to foreign policy, so I am enormously proud of what we have achieved, and I'm confident about the future."

    "I like being on the American team, not the State Department team, not the Defense Department team, not the partisan team. I like being on the American team. And I think when we take these positions and take that oath of office, we really pledge to be part of the American team."--Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

    Hillary earned the highest award the U.S. military can bestow to a civilian. It seems appropriate given the Pentagon's inability to audit itself.

    Words about Hillary:

    "As Hillary often says, this is not just the right thing to do; it is also the smart and effective thing to do."--Mrs. Ververr

    Content: Poor accounting and loose internal controls aren't new to the Clinton gang.

    The Clinton Global Initiative confessed to handling money poorly, which personally enriched the Clinton's close contacts.

    My take: It's a PEU world, where the greed and power class feel best interacting with their own. There's an unstated obligation to enrich their friends, regardless of the money source.

    Leadership Question: The buck stops where?
