AN OPEN LETTER TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, DO WE WANT A DICTATORSHIP, A FIEFDOM? There’s always been money in Politics. Perhaps not as much as today, thanks to Citizens United, but money and Power go together. I remember the good ” old days” during President Eisenhower’s administration, when the very thought of impropriety was enough to make an aide to the President resign over a gift. Sherman Adams, Eisenhower’s chief of Staff , was forced to resign when he accepted the gift of a Vicuna Coat? Surely, his resignation was not about the money the coat represented. It was the act of taking a gift from someone he considered a friend and perhaps had inadvertently lobbied on his friend’s behalf?
Fast forward to the 2016 elections, Hilary Clinton has consistently used her office as a personal Fiefdom, to wield power and influence for the benefit of herself and her family Foundation. It appears that she , The Clinton Foundation, has overstepped the boundaries between good government and private business. In fact, based on the way she conducted State Dept business, the lines between her Foundation and contributions by foreign nationals and big business have been blurred. No wonder she kept private servers and intermingled her personal life with her life at the State Dept. It made her Foundation grow by the Billions and in essence those millions of miles logged should have been considered business expenses. We have no idea what she did for our Country, nor how much the family business benefited.
Though the book, “Clinton Cash”, is authored by Peter Schweizer , knowingly employed by a conservative Think Tank, the NEW YORK TIMES, has vetted the book and contributed their own investigative reporting , creating a fascinating story of money in Politics and Foreign National actual and potential influence? The first excerpt, which appeared today, details the transactions between, the Clinton’s , Hilary and Bill, Their Foundation, Russia and our US mining of “Yellowcake”. The interesting piece of this puzzle is Russia’s ownership of US mined Uranium.
I’ve presented the New York Times article for your review, along with The Financial Times article on the scrutiny of Hillary Clinton’s financial dealings.

I guess we don’t strive hard enough to safe guard our vital metals, our electric grid, our infrastructure from foreign entities, every thing in America is for sale. It’s time to stop this flow of money and influence. Time to keep AMERICA for Americans and time to shine a light on all government, Congressional oversight and business dealings. If not, we will have a dictatorship that is more powerful and more corrupt that any Middle Eastern Despot’s. Time to get money out of Politics. Like Power, money corrupts absolutely. There should be a hew and cry to Repeal Citizens United! There should be a hew and cry, to keep Hilary Clinton from the Presidency! Instead, I’ve listened to NPR commentators and they’re not too concerned, at this time, about the Clinton’s involvement in the Uranium One affair? In fact, they’re pretty dismissive, stating that former White House staffers, have always known “the Clinton’s follow the money”. No Big Deal?! Also, NPR, intends to discuss both the Book and the NY Times investigative reporting in depth, on Monday. Guess we’ll have to wait for the “formal” NPR response.
Should we care? It seems, that under Hilary Clinton, The State Dept was her private fiefdom. Were transactions made for the Good of the Country or for the good of the Clinton Foundation? . What did we the people receive when she was minding her own store, as Head of State? The Death of one one of our most respected diplomats occurred on her watch . When Ambassador Stevens asked for money and security , it fell on deaf ears. Why?
When you are totally revolted by this new turn of events, don’t think only of Hillary Clinton, think of all the people involved in her schemes, think of the Congressmen and women who supported her deals and then ask, why have we allowed too much money to flow into Politics? Quid Quo pro exists. Influence and power go hand and hand and they don’t benefit us or the Country. Repeal Citizens United and the Super PACS , get dark money out of Politics and stop Hilliary Clinton from becoming President. The Country deserves better.
Not convinced: Have you ever wondered why the Clinton’s remain mute on crony capitalism? On Bill Clinton’s watch, the following laws were overturned or created leading ultimately to the fiscal collapse of 2008.
- Glass Steagall was repealed.
- The Commodities Future’s Act, legalizing over the counter sale of Derivatives was created.
- The door between government and lobbyists of all kinds was opened wide, when the 5 year waiting period between government, industry and lobbyists was overturned.
- Under the Clinton administration, Fannie and Freddie became a fraudulent industry with mortgage brokers, banks and developers colluding to sell homes to the disadvantaged at a price. These homes and their mortgages would eventually sink our economy in 2008 as Bankers used “new money instruments and pools of worthless loans” to destroy the fabric of Middle Class existence. Now we’re left with keeping the market afloat at the expense of Main Street.
Being aware of these facts, I ask Hillary, why haven’t you campaigned for new laws to stabilize our monetary system? Why have you chosen to stay mute on TBTF? The answer is clear my friends,” It’s written on the Winds”, why speak out while the good times roll?
How simplistic my world view. I just wanted to help “real” Americans achieve the American Dream by obtaining a good paying job and a good public education. I was prepared to bring my concept of the American Dream to other Countries. Let other’s experience a higher level of prosperity. Let other’s rise up from poverty, too! Dream big, demand more and together we can stop searching for the bottom and start earning a decent wage Globally. We can do it! If individuals are attaining great wealth on our backs, why can’t we say enough! We’re needy, too! If you feel the same, say NO!
- Just say NO to the Clinton’s
- Say No to a substandard wage
- Say No to leaders without vision for our Country and the World
- Say No to Moneyed Influence
Just say NO, until we the people have resurrected The Middle Class and Middle Class values. We want a better tomorrow for us, our children and our Community. We are all connected by 4 degrees of separation. We are family, one large Global family. Thank you, dear followers for reading. As always, I welcome your comments. Have a great day!
PS. It is with a heavy heart that I expose Hillary Clinton and her family’s foundation to scrutiny. But all those who use their position of power to benefit themselves at the expense of our Country should be exposed. As 2016 approaches, we should be reaching for “old time values” with untainted visions of success for our Country.
Where is the flip side to Money in Politics? Who’s writing the exposes on the other Presidential candidates? I wish to be fair and balanced. Whatever was done in Congress was known by all. Who were the player’s, what did they know, what was purchased and who benefited? Crony capitalism has a cost; it has destroyed The Middle Class
