One of the themes I have focused on is the separation between the expressed purposes of the Clinton Foundation and its true purposes. It’s not very difficult to do, partly because the institution itself as well as the Clintons provide one example after another to illustrate my point. Future revelations from emails will no doubt further reinforce my point.
Just as a review, it is my contention that the Clinton Foundation was set up as a vehicle to enrich the Clintons by accepting donations in return for favors from then secretary of state Hillary Clinton. That the foundation might have actually done something beneficial for humanity somewhere is beside the point. Or rather that any actual charitable acts the foundation might have performed were designed to run interference for Clinton’s personal fund-raising efforts, attempting to obscure the fraudulent nature of the organization.
We need only turn to the work of Judicial Watch to see a clear example of the duplicity of the Clintons. This time using the state department to allegedly provide funds for a housing project for the poor in Haiti. There are just a couple of problems with this apparently charitable act.
Providing housing for the poor in Haiti sounds like a terrific thing to do. Anyone familiar with the country knows that its people have suffered mightily. Enter the Clinton Foundation and a fellow named Claudio Osorio.
Judicial Watch identifies Osorio as, “a shady Miami businessman serving a 12-year prison sentence after scamming the government out of millions,” and as “a Clinton Foundation donor who got $10 million from the government after the Clinton State Department reportedly pulled some strings.” Sounds like a typical pal of Bill and Hillary, right?
What were the $10 million in state department funds to be used for? “Osorio’s ‘Haiti project’ was supposed to build 500 homes for displaced families in the aftermath of the earthquake,” according to the same Judicial Watch story. The homes were never built.
I’ve have all I can stand of this. You can read all the gory details at the Judicial Watch site if you wish.
It’s one thing to engage in fraudulent practices for your own benefit. But to benefit from fraud that diverts money away from poor people in an impoverished country who don’t even have a place to live due to an earthquake hits a new low. It takes a Clinton to benefit from a tragedy like that.
