The Clinton Foundation: No Such Thing as a Free Lunch

In the midst of allegations of quid pro quo, or what has been characterized as "pay for play" in regard to the Clinton Foundation contributors, it can only be surmised that something untoward has been happening. Employing the old axiom that there is no such thing as a free lunch, a look at who has been contributing (in most cases millions of dollars) it would appear to any unbiased observer that U.S. national interests have been sold down the river. The most prolific contributor has been the Saudi royal family. Given that most Middle Eastern terrorism- including the Sept. 11 attackers- are in large part funded by the Saudis, can it be that candidate Clinton has the security of America in mind? Moreover, the money donated to the foundation is then funneled into Mrs. Clinton's campaign for the presidency making it nothing more than a money-laundering organization. What favors does she owe these donors if she is elected? And, more importantly, how would these obligations affect U.S. foreign policy and our future security? This is only one possible conflict of interest. If one were to look carefully at the donor list, they would be able to draw their own conclusions. We do know that a Russian company, after donating millions, were able to purchase 20% of our uranium (weapons grade) deposits. John Podesta, Hillary's campaign manager, is on the board of a company that benefited directly from the transaction.

This is not to say that all of the donors are dishonest. After the Haitian earthquake, many concerned Americans donated to the foundation in hopes of easing the suffering of the decimated population. Unfortunately, very few of the collected funds made it past the Clinton Foundation's bank account. Before you pull the lever in November, remember this- if you did not contribute heavily to the campaign directly or indirectly through the foundation, it is extremely unlikely that Mrs. Clinton has your best interest at heart. After all...There is no such thing as a free lunch (especially where the Clinton's are concerned)!
