Clinton Foundation Pushes for Trump Impeachment- The Stink Is In

 Clinton Foundation (PAC) Pushes for Trump Impeachment, the stink of it in my back yard, imagine that after a year has past, the DNC reaches for the White House. Hillary Clinton made it no secret, she considers the Republican Party the enemy. She has vowed to destroy any Republican that gets in her way, and they will kill anyone that exposes them.

 The Clinton Foundation, "Gave" ‘Jack Daniel’s diplomacy’ questioned in taxpayer-funded liquor gifts abroad.

 You’d think the Russian people would have enough alcohol on hand without American taxpayers getting the next round – or the next 840 rounds.
But the American embassy in Moscow regularly hands out hundreds of bottles of premium liquor to local officials, workers, contacts and fixers as year-end goodwill presents, an American Media Institute analysis of federal spending data shows.
In 2010, the State Department, under then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who unsuccessfully tried a “reset” in relations with Russia, spent $21,733 to distribute 840 fifths of Jack Daniel’s as “gratuities,” presumably all or most to citizens of America’s No. 1 national adversary.
The embassy practice predates Clinton and has continued under the present Sec. John F. Kerry, in a land long ranked high among the world’s top imbibers of hard drink, with alcoholism and related health and social problems to match.
Worldwide, American taxpayer-funded spending on alcohol, primarily at embassies, has increased substantially in recent years, more than doubling from $281,000 in the 2009 fiscal year to more than $764,000 in 2014. It dropped last year to $623,000, the database analysis shows.
Diplomatic liquor sales top federal government spending on alcohol, according to the AMI analysis. The State Department is by far the biggest spender, with $3 million in purchase since 2009 fiscal year; with the US Navy coming in a distant second with $131,000 during the same period.
Small wonder the cost trend is generally upward. The American embassy in London paid nearly $200 per bottle of 2005 Opus One wine in 2011 when it bought two cases for an event, records show. The embassy press office confirmed that the purchase – almost $4,300 – was for a formal “diplomatic representational event” that took place at the U.S .ambassador’s residence. The wine typically is much more expensive now.
“An important part of the Department of State’s mission is to represent the United States and its interests abroad,” the embassy staff said in a written statement. “The Department does so fully mindful of its duties as stewards of the public resources entrusted to it. These activities are vital to maintaining the bilateral and multilateral relationships required to advance U.S. government priorities overseas.”
None of the American officials contacted for this article would consent to an interview about the gifts, including the appropriateness of distributing alcohol in a country with high alcoholism. The Clinton campaign did not respond to emailed inquiries.
“We don’t have anyone available to do an interview on this,” emailed a State Department spokeswoman, who said even that comment was off the record, before terms of any interview were agreed to. But in a statement, the department defended the gifts as an accepted part of diplomacy, which has long been lubricated by libations.
“It is common practice for diplomatic missions, whether from the United States or other countries, to provide nominal gifts to foreign officials and contacts particularly during the holidays,” the statement said. “For instance,” the statement continued, “if an embassy official had worked with local police to help an American citizen in trouble somewhere, that official might decide to send a small holiday gift to the police station.”
But a taxpayer advocate panned the superpower drinksmanship.
“It’s crazy,” said David Williams, president of the Taxpayers Protection Alliance. “I don’t see relations with Russia getting better because of Jack Daniel’s. They might be insulted we weren’t handing out Russian vodka.”
In the diplomacy of the distilled and fermented, the cultural sensitivities don’t end there.
While in the West it may seem overly puritanical to frown on taxpayer funded tippling to advance international relations, alcohol is a touchy subject in countries that ban or severely restrict it.
In the Muslim world, U.S. embassies evidently skirt the issue by stocking booze for diplomatic functions on the premises, which are sovereign American territory, as with the $4,680 of American wine laid on by the embassy in Kuwait in 2011, according to purchasing records. Meantime, the State Department warns American travelers to Kuwait: “You risk immediate imprisonment for possession of alcohol or driving under the influence.”
American officials would not say how many Russians work at or come in contact with the American embassy in Moscow, nor did the Russian Embassy in Washington respond to inquiries.
But the U.S. bastion in the Russian capital’s central Preznensky District has long been a focus of intrigue, and that was especially true in the time of the Soviet Union. It was Soviet workers who were suspected of planting hidden listening devices in the building when it was under construction in the 1980s, touching off a long diplomatic row.
Records for the embassy show it spent $40,000 on wine and bourbon as gratuities in 2012; $24,850 on bourbon gifts in 2013; and about $19,000 on various alcoholic gratuities over 2014 and 2015, not to mention $10,835 for American beer and wine at embassy Fourth of July festivities.
The State Department statement said such gifts respect local mores and the department makes them “fully mindful of its duties as the steward of the public resources entrusted to it, and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.”
But Williams of the taxpayers’ alliance, while conceding the purchases might be only a drop in the bucket, said they are expenses that should end.
“It’s not going to solve all the fiscal problems, but it’s low-hanging fruit, and when it comes to government waste … it’s an easy decision not to buy alcohol,” he said. “Sometimes when taxpayers see waste, they’re even more frustrated because they can identify with a smaller figure. They know that $10,000 is what their mortgage payment might be for a year.”

Do you really think so young man, the stink of her power reaches world wide?

I think Hillary Clinton has been deranged and very dangerous for too long. Her endless quest for power must be stopped cold. If Jeff Sessions does not act quickly - regarding all the growing criminal evidence - he should be FIRED.

Thanks much, for the young man comment.  :-)

Hi Frank,

 What about the FBI, you know dog gone well the investigation should be against the Clinton Foundation, so , I am leaning to believe, they planted them guys into the position with Trump, as a wild card just in case Trump did win the elections. 

Then they could leverage a play to take the White House, and it will start trouble, and I am not sure of all the rumors, but people suspect a placing of them 3 guys to use later if Trump does not play ball with them.

I buy this, and I will share this info.

You kids have, I have several more issues, about 30 years of the stink in my back yard.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Tea Party Wishes You And Your Family
A Happy Thanksgiving 

Thanksgiving Proclamation, 3 October 1789

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor—and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be—That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks—for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation—for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war—for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed—for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted—for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions—to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually—to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed—to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord—To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us—and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

George Washington
President of the United States of America
