No wonder Hillary maintains her female support despite dropping dead on 9/11, she just taps into the unlimited well of American female narcissism.

Someone took the time to count the number of people at a Hillary Rally (Temple University) in Pennsylvania.

212...that is a painful number.

Which podium is Hillary's?

Weird how hard she has to focus on the first couple steps. Looks like a real struggle, the motor skills are not there. Then is ambushed by the reporter question. Total demeanour change.

Hillary has hypothyroidism, which screws up the body temperature, she feels cold even though it is hot out. Either that or she hides some sort of darth vader contraption under the suit to keep her alive.

RE: The Hillary Clinton thread
FBI Director's Clinton Foundation Connection

Quote:WASHINGTON, D.C. — A review of FBI Director James Comey’s professional history and relationships shows that the Obama cabinet leader — now under fire for his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton — is deeply entrenched in the big-money cronyism culture of Washington, D.C. His personal and professional relationships — all undisclosed as he announced the Bureau would not prosecute Clinton — reinforce bipartisan concerns that he may have politicized the criminal probe.
These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.


Lockheed Martin

When President Obama nominated Comey to become FBI director in 2013, Comey promised the United States Senate that he would recuse himself on all cases involving former employers.

But Comey earned $6 million in one year alone from Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin became a Clinton Foundation donor that very year.

Comey served as deputy attorney general under John Ashcroft for two years of the Bush administration. When he left the Bush administration, he went directly to Lockheed Martin and became vice president, acting as a general counsel.

How much money did James Comey make from Lockheed Martin in his last year with the company, which he left in 2010? More than $6 million in compensation.

Lockheed Martin is a Clinton Foundation donor. The company admitted to becoming a Clinton Global Initiative member in 2010.

According to records, Lockheed Martin is also a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, which paid Bill Clinton $250,000 to deliver a speech in 2010.

In 2010, Lockheed Martin won 17 approvals for private contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department.

HSBC Holdings

In 2013, Comey became a board member, a director, and a Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee member of the London bank HSBC Holdings.

“Mr. Comey’s appointment will be for an initial three-year term which, subject to re-election by shareholders, will expire at the conclusion of the 2016 Annual General Meeting,” according to HSBC company records.

HSBC Holdings and its various philanthropic branches routinely partner with the Clinton Foundation. For instance, HSBC Holdings has partnered with Deutsche Bank through the Clinton Foundation to “retrofit 1,500 to 2,500 housing units, primarily in the low- to moderate-income sector” in “New York City.”

“Retrofitting” refers to a Green initiative to conserve energy in commercial housing units. Clinton Foundation records show that the Foundation projected “$1 billion in financing” for this Green initiative to conserve people’s energy in low-income housing units.

Who Is Peter Comey?

When our source called the Chinatown offices of D.C. law firm DLA Piper and asked for “Peter Comey,” a receptionist immediately put him through to Comey’s direct line. But Peter Comey is not featured on the DLA Piper website.

Peter Comey serves as “Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas” for DLA Piper. James Comey was not questioned about his relationship with Peter Comey in his confirmation hearing.

DLA Piper is the firm that performed the independent audit of the Clinton Foundation in November during Clinton-World’s first big push to put the email scandal behind them. DLA Piper’s employees taken as a whole represent a major Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign donation bloc and Clinton Foundation donation base.

DLA Piper ranks #5 on Hillary Clinton’s all-time career Top Contributors list, just ahead of Goldman Sachs.

And here is another thing: Peter Comey has a mortgage on his house that is owned by his brother James Comey, the FBI director.

Peter Comey’s financial records, obtained by Breitbart News, show that he bought a $950,000 house in Vienna, Virginia, in June 2008. He needed a $712,500 mortgage from First Savings Mortgage Corporation.

But on January 31, 2011, James Comey and his wife stepped in to become Private Party lenders. They granted a mortgage on the house for $711,000. Financial records suggest that Peter Comey took out two such mortgages from his brother that day.

This financial relationship between the Comey brothers began prior to James Comey’s nomination to become director of the FBI.

DLA Piper did not answer Breitbart News’ question as to whether James Comey and Peter Comey spoke at any point about this mortgage or anything else during the Clinton email investigation.

Peter Comey Re-Designed the FBI Building

FBI Director James Comey grew up in the New Jersey suburbs with his brother Peter. Both Comeys were briefly taken captive in 1977 by the “Ramsey rapist,” but the boys managed to escape through a window in their home, and neither boy was harmed.

James Comey became a prosecutor who worked on the Gambino crime family case. He went on to the Bush administration, a handful of private sector jobs, and then the Obama administration in 2013.

Peter Comey, meanwhile, went into construction.

After getting an MBA in real estate and urban development from George Washington University in 1998, Peter Comey became an executive at a company that re-designed George Washington University between 2004 and 2007 while his brother was in town working for the Bush administration.

In January 2009, at the beginning of the Obama administration, Peter Comey became “a real estate and construction consultant” for Procon Consulting.

Procon Consulting’s client list includes “FBI Headquarters Washington, DC.”

So what did Procon Consulting do for FBI Headquarters? Quite a bit, apparently. According to the firm’s records:

Procon provided strategic project management for the consolidation of over 11,000 FBI personnel into one, high security, facility.

Since 1972 the Federal Bureau of Investigation has had its headquarters in a purpose built 2.1 million square foot building on Pennsylvania Avenue. Having become functionally obsolete and in need of major repairs, GSA and the FBI were considering ways to meet the space needs required to maintain the Bureau’s mission and consolidate over 11,000 personnel.

Procon assisted GSA in assessing the FBI’s space needs and options for fulfilling those needs. Services provided included project management related to site evaluations, budgeting, due diligence, and the development of procurement and funding strategies.

Those “funding strategies” included talking to “stakeholders”: “Worked with stakeholders and key leadership to identify strategic objectives, goals and long range plans for capital and real estate projects.”

Procon Consulting obtained its contract for FBI Headquarters prior to James Comey’s nomination to serve as director of the FBI.

In June 2011, Peter Comey left Procon Consulting to become “Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas” for DLA Piper.

Peter Comey has generated some controversy in that role. According to Law360 in May 2013 (the same month that James Comey was confirmed as someone being considered by Obama to become FBI director):


Two real estate services businesses filed a $10 million suit against the law firm Monday alleging it stiffed them on as much as $760,000 of work done at DLA Piper’s Chicago office and improperly gave proprietary information to a competitor.

….

The plaintiffs take particular aim at Peter Comey, DLA Piper’s senior director of real estate operations. Leasecorp and SpaceLogik include several emails in the complaint that are purportedly from DLA Piper senior real estate partners Jay Epstein and Rich Klawiter and are sharply critical of Comey’s handling of the matter. In one email, Epstein wrote that “it’s an embarrassment for the firm to be treating someone who we are working with like this.”

In another email allegedly from Klawiter on Feb. 20, the DLA Piper partner informed Leasecorp President Michael Walker, a principal for both plaintiffs, that Comey had sent him and Epstein an email claiming that the real estate services firms were behind on their contractual obligations.

“I just received an email from Peter (Jay was also a recipient) that is so inflammatory I can’t even send it or you’ll hit the roof,” Klawiter said in the email, according to the complaint. “This is not going to end well.”

Can anyone give me a tl;dr on how the Clinton foundation works in their benefit?

I understand that they can enjoy very cushy accommodations, transport, feasts, and events and write them off as fundraising, but aren't there too many checks involved to siphon off cash directly?

Nope, they just cash the check. Common sense does not apply.

Then pay flunkies/yes-men cushy salaries through the foundation. Chelsea got a 900k job right out of college there.

Cash comes in, political favors go out.

Sometimes they take cash for a disaster like the Haiti earthquake 10 years ago, and just keep all of the cash and make sure not to help the earthquake victims.

It's the worst kept secret in Washington. No one talks about it because so many people are involved in some way

RE: The Hillary Clinton thread
Why in the name of sweet fuck did she lump Veterans into this 'coalition?'

[Image: tBvqmFYl.jpg]

Quote:Midway through the first presidential debate, just before snivelling racist air horn Donald Trump assured the US that he’s the only candidate who’s up and ready to cyber, the Republican nominee made this remarkable statement: “Nobody knows that it was Russia that broke into the DNC – she’s saying ‘Russia, Russia, Russia’ – but I don’t, maybe it was! I mean, it could be Russia, but it could also be China. It could also be lots of other people. It also could be somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds, OK? You don’t know who broke into DNC.”

While I do want to congratulate Trump on one of his few successful deployments of the English language last night – buddy put words in an order that conveyed a vaguely decipherable meaning, much like Franklin Delano Roosevelt! – the phrase “somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds” raises a vital question.

Fat people, are we going to stand for this shit?

We already knew that Trump hates fat women. He hates Rosie O’Donnell so much for being fat and gay (“Rosie is just disgusting,” Trump said in 2006. “She’s fat, she’s a loser, she’s a farm animal pig, she’s a beast, OK”) that he shoehorned his irrelevant, decade-old grudge into the most precious and tightly regimented 90 minutes of his political career thus far. As the Clinton campaign masterfully publicised last night, the former Miss Universe Alicia Machado has claimed Trump drove her to an eating disorder by calling her “Miss Piggy” and publicly threatening her crown if she didn’t lose weight. Trump epitomises the type of man who sees no value in women other than their smallness, compliance, conventional attractiveness and sexual availability.

But by pointing a wee alabaster doll finger at fat nerds for the DNC hack, Trump didn’t just express the standard disgust for fat bodies, he positioned fat people as dangers to national security. The implications are familiar, even if the context is outlandish: fat people are lazy, bedridden, unscrupulous, untrustworthy, antisocial, gluttonous (for secrets!) and worthless as anything but a punchline. Trump could have said, simply, “a person sitting on their bed”, but he chose to specify the fictional hacker’s fictional weight, because it evokes destructive stereotypes about fat people and antique ones about nerds. Because it milks harsh, cheap laughs out of the bullies who make up Trump’s base. Because Americans do not like or trust fat people – nor, really, consider them fully human – and neither does Trump.

That’s the same dislike and distrust that makes fat people less likely to be hired for jobs, take home equal pay or receive adequate medical care under their insurance. It’s that dislike and distrust that make it socially acceptable (a public service, even!) to harass and verbally abuse fat people. It’s the reason why most clothing labels refuse to make garments in larger sizes – because we fat people are so worthless that they do not even want our money.

“Four hundred pounds” (181kg; 28st 8lb) is not a punchline; it is not an absurd, shameful, astronomical number; it accurately describes a body that many, many Americans are living in right now – Americans with fulfilling jobs and vibrant families, who pay their taxes (it’s this thing regular people do every year – ask your gardener) and treat the people around them with humanity and respect. Americans who vote.

Now, my dear fellow fat people. I know that you have been taught not to think of yourselves as a group, because the diet industry makes billions of dollars from the notion that each of you is just an individual who has temporarily failed to be thin. But, believe me, the rest of the country – employers, jurors, neighbours, voters – thinks of you collectively and treats you accordingly. And, well, if we’re going to be oppressed as a class, we might as well start using our clout as a class.

As every fat person is perpetually reminded, more than 84 million American adults are considered clinically “obese”. That number rockets if you include people medically defined as “overweight”. That’s at least 84 million people that Trump has compared to farm animals and criminals. That is a lot of votes. Fat people could swing this election, elect the first female president, reject en masse the notion that swallowing contempt (from a man we are interviewing for a job, no less) is our duty.

So, come on, fat people, JOIN ME. RISE UP. We never get to be the hero. I’m being silly, but what if we did? I can think of no more appropriate fate for this classist, xenophobic, white supremacist whoopee cushion than to be hurled back into F-list obscurity by a coalition of women, people of colour, Muslims, fat people, veterans, LGBT people and every intersection therein. My fat ass is with her.

RE: The Hillary Clinton thread
There are quite a lot of fat fuck veterans. I don't know why.

It's like they get out of the military and say "screw it".

We were meant for far more than to suffer in our self created prisons only to die alone. It doesn't have to be that way. It never did.
