GE’s Jeffrey Immelt Refuses To Release Hillary Emails

Was Hillary emailing the head of GE about yoga classes and Chelsea’s wedding? If not, then it sure looks like she was doing official State Department business.

From the Daily Caller:

GE CEO: I Will Not Release State Department Emails From Hillary Clinton

By Patrick Howley | April 22, 2015

General Electric (GE) CEO Jeffrey Immelt said Wednesday that he will not release the emails that GE exchanged with Hillary Clinton’s State Department during the period in which GE was donating to the Clinton Foundation.

Hillary must be hopping mad. We all know how she wants the American public to see all of her emails. (And yet, for some odd reason, that still hasn’t happened.)

“Again, I think that’s not something we would do. Right?” Immelt said at GE’s shareholder meeting in Oklahoma City, OK in response to a question from Justin Danhof of the National Center For Public Policy Research, who pressed the CEO to release written communications with the State Department.

Hill-Raisers Must Raise $27,000 To Get To Meet Hillary

We’re sure they will all think it is worth it. Especially if they are going to need a favor from the White House later.

From Ben Shapiro via Breitbart:

Hillary Clinton 2.0: The Money Machine Launches

By Ben Shapiro | April 22, 2015

… Hillary Clinton’s manufactured “little people” campaign is about to take a back seat to raising as much cash from as many wealthy donors as possible. According to the Huffington Post, Hillary is already pumping her fundraisers, telling them that they ought to become part of the so-called “Hillstarters” campaign in which they raise $2,700 from ten people, and in exchange, get an audience with The Queen Bee…

Hillary is from Chicago. ‘Pay to play’ is the Daley way. (Cf. Rod Blagojevich, Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama, et alia.) And, of course, it’s also the Democrat way in general.

WP: Unreported Donors Paid Bill Clinton Untold Millions

What’s the problem? Everyone says ‘charity begins at home.’ Especially if you are a Clinton.

From the Washington Post, of all places:

For Clintons, speech income shows how their wealth is intertwined with charity

By Rosalind S. Helderman | April 22, 2015

Bill Clinton was paid at least $26 million in speaking fees by companies and organizations that are also major donors to the foundation he created after leaving the White House, according to a Washington Post analysis of public records and foundation data.

The amount, about one-quarter of Clinton’s overall speaking income between 2001 and 2013, demonstrates how closely intertwined Bill and Hillary Clinton’s charitable work has become with their growing personal wealth.

Now that she has formally entered the presidential race, the family may face political pressure and some legal requirements to provide further details of their personal finances and those of the foundation, giving voters a clearer view of the global network of patrons that have supported the Clintons and their work over the past 15 years.

Clinton Foundation Under-Reported Donations For Years

Al Sharpton and his National Action Network must be pea-green with envy.

From Reuters, of all places:

Exclusive: Clinton charities will refile tax returns, audit for other errors

By Jonathan Allen | April 23, 2015

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Hillary Clinton’s family’s charities are refiling at least five annual tax returns after a Reuters review found errors in how they reported donations from governments, and said they may audit other Clinton Foundation returns in case of other errors…

That is, after they were caught cheating red-handed. (Also note that this is from Reuters, who do not have any contractual obligation with Peter Schweizer to look into this stuff. In fact, as the article later notes in passing, Reuters has known about these fraudulent tax returns for at least a month.)

The charities’ errors generally take the form of under-reporting or over-reporting, by millions of dollars, donations from foreign governments, or in other instances omitting to break out government donations entirely when reporting revenue, the charities confirmed to Reuters.

NYT: Hillary Let Russia Buy 20% Of US Uranium Supply

Have the Sulzberger family sold The Times to the Koch Brothers?

From the New York Times:

Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation as Russians Pressed for Control of Uranium Company

By JO BECKER and MIKE McINTIRE | April 23, 2015

The headline in Pravda trumpeted President Vladimir V. Putin’s latest coup…“Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.” The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain…

Which is peculiar, given the Putin has agreed with Obama to slash Russia and America’s nuclear arsenals to the bone.

AP: Employers Cut Jobs In 31 States As ‘Growth Slows

From a seemingly surprised Associated Press:

Employers cut jobs in 31 US states as growth slows

By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER | April 21, 2015

WASHINGTON (AP) — Employers in 31 U.S. states cut jobs last month as weak economic growth weighed on hiring and a slowdown in oil and gas drilling caused big job losses in some states.

What ‘growth’?

The Labor Department said Tuesday that unemployment rates rose or were unchanged in 27 states and fell in 23 states… The biggest job cuts occurred in states with large oil and gas drilling, led by Texas, which lost 25,400 jobs, and followed by Oklahoma, which cut 12,900. Pennsylvania lost 12,700, the third largest loss…

You’d think the AP would be cheering this. (And, in fact, they probably are.)

Harsh winter weather and a labor dispute at West Coast ports that disrupted shipping dragged down the economy in the first three months of the year…

There is never any global warming when it comes to the ‘economic headwinds’ Obama has to face.

Hillary Raced 80 MPH To Catch Flight With First Class

From the (no longer just UK) Daily Mail:

Hillary’s back in first class at end of New Hampshire campaign trip where she railed against the rich – after 80mph race to BOSTON to catch flight with elite seats

By David Martosko | 21 April 2015

Boston — Hillary Clinton ended her whirlwind New Hampshire campaign swing on Tuesday afternoon in another state entirely, taking taxpayers for an 80 miles-per-hour ride all the way to Boston – to catch a flight with first class seats.

This is not to be confused with her convoy hitting 92 mph on a New Hampshire freeway the day before.

Her Secret Service-provided ‘Scooby’ van motored from Concord to Boston Logan International Airport, escorted by troopers from both New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

Hillary Hedges On Trade Package (For Which Donors?)

From the Washington Post:

Hillary Clinton hedges on trade deal opposed by liberals

By Anne Gearan | April 21, 2015

CONCORD, N.H. – Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton hedged Tuesday on whether she will support a trade package gaining traction in Congress but opposed by some in her party’s politically potent liberal wing.

For which foreign donor(s)?

"Any trade deal has to produce jobs and raise wages and increase prosperity and protect our security,” Clinton said during a tour of a community college that focuses on technical skills. “We have to do our part in making sure we have the capabilities and the skills to be competitive." …

Is that what Bill’s NAFTA did?

That fell short of an endorsement of the Trade Promotion Authority bill, which would give President Obama and Congress renewed authority to “fast track” approval of trade deals.

Hillary Memo Details Book Attack Plan, Refutes Nothing

From the Politico:

Hillary Clinton memo details attack plan on new book

By Gabriel Debenedetti | April 22, 2015

MANCHESTER, N.H. — The Clinton campaign circulated a memo to its surrogates and allies on Tuesday night that details talking points and responses to the soon-to-be-published book “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by conservative author Peter Schweizer.

Gee, how did the Politico ever get a copy? (Kidding.) But why bother issuing all these talking points? Why not just disprove the charges? (Again, kidding.)

“The book was backed by a Koch Brothers-linked organization and a billionaire family that is bankrolling Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign,” writes national press secretary Brian Fallon in the memo —

Mention ‘the Koch Brothers.’ Check.

ABC News: Elian’s Mother Died Because Of US Embargo

From ABC News:

Elian Gonzalez: What the Boy Once in the Middle of a US-Cuba Tug of War Is Up to Today

By JIM AVILA and SERENA MARSHALL | April 22, 2015

It has been 15 years since Elian Gonzalez, asleep in his aunt’s Miami home when he was 6 years old, was taken into custody by U.S. federal agents. In the early morning hours of April 22, 2000, agents burst into his room, guns drawn, and scooped him up and out before the Cuban exile community could stop them…

[Elian’s] mother died while trying to escape the harsh economic situation on the island by boarding a homemade raft with 10 other people and Elian…

"Trying to escape the harsh economic situation on the island"?!

Obama Gave Amnesty To Gang Banger Who Killed Four

From Breitbart:

Obama Administration Admits Granting Known Gang Member Amnesty

By Caroline May | April 21, 2015

Charlotte, NC — The Obama administration is admitting it granted executive amnesty protections to a known gang member — one charged with four counts of murder — and is now reviewing prior approvals to double check that other gang members have not also been approved for deferred status.

Gee, how did that ever happen? Of course, that’s a rhetorical question, since it is literally impossible that the Obama administration could have run background checks on the almost 900,000 DACA applications the US Citizenship and Immigration Services has received as of last month.

Besides, how do you do background checks on ‘undocumented’ people who have been ‘living in the shadows’?

AP Shocker: Many Illegals Flock To Europe For Welfare

From a gobsmacked Associated Press:

Many migrants drawn by jobs, welfare in northern Europe

By KARL RITTER | April 20, 2015

STOCKHOLM (AP) — For tens of thousands of migrants who survive the hazardous crossing of the Mediterranean, the journey often continues as they slip through cracks in Italy’s border controls and head north…

Despite the headline, there is little actual mention of welfare in this article. Why is that, do you think?

With Italy’s unemployment at 13 percent, many new arrivals would rather settle in the wealthier welfare states [sic] of northern Europe where there are better job opportunities and more established refugee communities…

And far more generous welfare benefits.

Of the 435,000 people who applied for asylum last year in the 28-nation European Union, nearly half did so in Germany and Sweden…

So Europe doesn’t even get half a million illegals a year?

DOJ Won’t Prosecute Chi-Com Spy At State Department

From Fox News:

State Dept. contractor allegedly paid by Chinese agent to spy on Americans – yet no charges filed

By Catherine Herridge | April 22, 2015

… Newly unsealed court documents obtained by Fox News show a State Department contractor allegedly was paid thousands by an individual thought to be a Chinese agent in exchange for information on Americans — but despite an FBI probe, the Justice Department declined to prosecute.

A November 2014 FBI affidavit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, shows the bureau investigated the contractor for her admitted contact with individuals she believed to be Chinese intelligence officers.

The affidavit from agent Timothy S. Pappa states the translator, Xiaoming Gao, was paid "thousands of dollars to provide information on U.S.

WH Won’t Call Muslim Massacre Of Christians Genocide

From the Politico:

President Obama to shun saying ‘genocide’ on 100th anniversary of Armenian massacres

By Michael Crowley | April 21, 2015

President Barack Obama will not use the word “genocide” to describe the massacre of up to 1.5 million Armenians in his annual statement commemorating the historic atrocity later this month.

Note that the Politico’s article doesn’t use the terms ‘Christian’ or ‘Muslim’ once. Why is that? — Anyway, where is the outrage at Obama being a ‘Holocaust Denier.’ — Or course, Obama is going to refuse to call the systematic massacre of over 1.5 million Armenian Christians by Turkish Muslims ‘genocide.’ — After all, that’s just what Muslims do.

White House chief of staff Denis McDonough and deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes informed Armenian-American activists of the decision in a meeting at the White House on Tuesday…

Lest we forget, just last month Mr.

Obama: Less Violence In The World Than 40 Years Ago

From Real Clear Politics:

Obama: "There Is Probably Less War And Violence Around The World Today Than There Might Have Been 30 or 40 Years Ago"

[Mr.] Obama talks about tumult in the world in an interview with Chris Matthews of MSNBC…

OBAMA: "But I always tell people we have to maintain some perspective on this. The Middle East and North Africa are going through changes that we haven’t seen in our generation. I think the Islamic world is going through a process where they have to isolate and push out the kind of extremism that we’ve seen expressed by ISIL.

Which is so different from ‘the kind of extremism’ that is practiced in every other Muslim-run country. (Sarcasm.)

"And that’s a generational project. What our job is in the meantime is to make sure that we are protecting Americans, we’re protecting our interests, that we’re maintaining things like freedom of navigation and that we’re partnering with the best elements of those communities in order to be successful.
