"Public service" my ass - Clintons Report $109.2 Million in Income Over 7 Years


Well, now we know why Hillary waited as long as she possibly could before releasing the dirty truth. And you want the REAL dirty truth? Well you can't have it. The REAL dirty truth is the $500 million plus in contributors to the Clinton Global Initiative - also known as the "When Hillary is President We'll Take Care of You Don't Worry Global Initiative" - that Bill and Hillary won't detail.

To be fair it's not just the Clintons. So many "public servants" use their "service" to enrich themselves. But the Clintons have taken it to a whole new level.

Suckers. We're all just a bunch of suckers.

Revolution anyone? Anyone?


This should absolutely disgust you. And it should immediately end her campaign - even though she released it on a Friday night of course.

Clinton tax returns 2000-2007 show income over $109 million

New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton just released her tax returns for the years 2000 through 2007.

Some quick figures:

The Clintons' income over the eight-year period was more than $109 million. They paid nearly $34 million in taxes over the period, 31% of their income, and contributed about $10 millon to charity.

Former president Bill Clinton's speeches brought in nearly $52 million and his books nearly $30 million. Hillary Clinton's book Living History earned her $10.3 million.

I doubt she'd vote against pay increases for U.S. Senators if that bill hit the floor.

But remember, she is for The People and the evil Republicans are rich white people looking out for big business.

Limousine Liberals piss me off. Almost as much as the current administration.

If you want to see what the real Hillary is all about, take a look at this video:

You think Hillbillary gives a damn about the common people or the American republic? She's total NWO trash.

Enjoy your soon to be Global Socialist Government people.

I've been digging into the returns, and I think I found the "money shot" they were trying to avoid seeing released...

In 2003, they deducted $147,440 for "cleaning and maintenance" of their 2 home offices (a combined 1029 sq ft)

(see page 30 of the 2003 return under Statements 11 & 12)
There is some debate on my blog as to whether this amount is for cleaning the whole house, or just their offices (I say offices).

However... they didn't try this expense in future years, so there may be something questionable about it.

Yawn. Sorry but nothing earth shaking in their tax returns. Former presidents and first ladies make good money with books. And Bill is an excellent and popular speaker, so he can charge premium for his engagements anywhere in the world. Good for him.

Plus Hillary gave all the money from her other book to charity, they both paid 1/3 of gross in taxes and the rest went to charity.

We're talking about 50 million bucks the Clintons gave back to the country and to charities. Plus I'm glad they're good with Finance because we need smart people who understand economics to turn this country around, not the Mr. Empty Suit Messiah who depends on Rezko's blessings to increase his assets.

Obama, the Haterz, and the corrupt media were waiting anxiously for the Clinton tax return and nothing major happened. bwahahahaha. Big deal!!! Ooooo, one of the most popular (internationally) and articulate former American presidents made money with memoirs and speech engagements after leaving the White House. So what?
Nothing to see here, moving on.

I don't see anything wrong with this per say. I mean if people want to pay to listen to Bill Clinton speak, then let them!

Anonymous said...

You do realize that Bill Clinton charges $250k per speech, which is normal for someone of his importance, and that he's been booked solid around the planet for engagements, right? Just a little back-of-the-envelope calculation here:

$250k X 52 weeks = $13 million

$13 million X 7 years = $91 million

Add books to that, and it's about right. All presidents do that, but Bill can charge more b/c he's the best speaker and more popular than others.

Sorry to disappoint all the Haterz who were anxiously and naively waiting for something earthshaking, but the numbers speak for themselves. Nothing to see here. Sorry Obama, enjoy your downfall since your base is already jumping boat according to latest polls. And as the economy gets worse, Hillary will get more and more Obama and McCain defectors. Easy as pie.
Enjoy.

Requiem aeternam, requiem aeternam
Mama, mama, forget your pies
Have faith they won't get cold
And turn your eyes to the bloodshot sky
Your flag is flying full
At half mast, for the matadors
Who turned their backs to please the crowd
And all fell before the bull
Red was the color of his blood flowing thin
Pallid white was the color of his lifeless skin
Blue was the color of the morning sky
He saw looking up from the ground where he died
It was the last thing ever seen by him
Kyrie Eleison
Mama, mama, forget your pies
Have faith they won't get cold
And turn your eyes to the bloodshot sky
Your flag is flying full
At half mast, for the matadors
Who turned their backs to please the crowd
And fell before the bull
Black and white were the figures that recorded him
Black and white was the newsprint he was mentioned in
Black and white was the question that so bothered him
He never asked, he was taught not to ask
BUt was on his lips as they buried him
Rex tremendae majestatis
Requiem aeternam, Requiem aeternam

The best revenge is doing well. If I were the Clintons I would have sold out even worse. Then I would call all the republicans voted out of office in 2006 and give them a big FUCK YOU and let them know how rich I was getting.

The only good republican is a DEAD one. I hope Bill Clinton encourages people to start mowing down republicans when the economic shit really hits the fan. I also kind of hope McCain wins so he can really accelerate the decline and give us a reason to round up republicans and gas them to hell. That's where they're going to end up anyway.

And you point is? This is over 7 years. Oprah makes over half this amount in 1 year. So do a lot of other people. BushCo.'s income per YEAR probably makes this amount look likee chump change. I'll bet Barack aka Barry (before he became psuedoblack)makes 3x this amount in 7 years. See how much he'll give to the charity (african causes don't count). Seek professional help for your Obsessive Clinton Hatred. Tool.

Washington Mutual sinks on mortgage loss worries

Fri Apr 4, 2008 4:31pm EDT

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Washington Mutual Inc (WM.N: Quote, Profile, Research) shares fell 11.5 percent on Friday after an analyst said mortgage and other credit problems will lead to a bigger 2008 loss, and may keep the largest U.S. savings and loan from making money before 2010.

Frederick Cannon, an analyst at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods Inc, expects the Seattle-based thrift to lose $3.15 per share in 2008, more than double the $1.45 per share loss he had previously expected.

He also expects the thrift to break even in 2009, after earlier forecasting a profit of $2.25 per share.

Some kid who lives in the ghetto, a blue collar guy that works 40 hours a week but can't afford his own home, a trucker that can't make a profit with $4 diesel, etc????

Oh, and that 10 million dollars they gave to charity is about 9 million, nine hundred and ninety-nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety more than most republicans have ever given to charity so selflessly, no matter how rich they are. When republicans give they want something named after themselves or perhaps to get a Congressman to introduce a law to make them 11 million dollars more.

Republicans are scum.

Former president Bill Clinton's speeches brought in nearly $52 million and his books nearly $30 million. Hillary Clinton's book Living History earned her $10.3 million.

Where in there does it say they did anything even REMOTELY bad to get their income? 92 million from making speeches and writing books. Not sending jobs overseas, not trading bad debt-laden CDOs to pension funds, not waging war, not enslaving third world children tot manufacture cheap shit. Writing books and making inspirational speeches extolling the virtues of a fairer society.

Do you feel the same about a movie star who makes 20 million for being in one flop movie? The rapper who makes 20 million on a record? The athlete who makes 20 million a year to play a kid's game? Are they bad people too?

stopthecircus said...

A lot of ex-presidents and other top officials - of both parties - make big bucks. As long as people want to pay for their advice, speeches or books, good for them. And they could have lived happily ever after.

The problem is that they want to get back into the White House. By giving to Bill, donors expect continued access in the future. By now the Clinton's IOU list is the size of a phone book.

Term limits should include spouses, so we never get a circus like this again.
I bet nobody expected this to ever happen when the 22nd Amendment was passed in 1947.

They have 10% to charity. Not 8, not 12, but exactly 10. Yet another cold calculated move by them.

And if their tax records looked like mine, you big bullies would say "See, they're too stupid to make any money." Do you really expect any living, breathing human to say, "No, thank you, I'll work for free." Think how much it would cost us taxpayers if Clinton actually lived in Harlem. He would need way more Secret Service big guns! Good for them making a buck . . . this is America afterall!

Amtex said...

So their tax and charity contributions totaled almost $50 million. And almost all the money came from selling their books and Bill's speeches.

What in the world is the problem there? And which one of us would not do the same thing if we could?

Those "$250,000 speeches" are not coming from the local Kiwanis Club YOU TWITS!

Yea, it is truly amazing that everyone is mad because the Clinton's have made money in the last 10 years. No one says anything about Cheney socking it away with Halliburton deferred salary, or Ronald Reagan going on a speaking tour to Japan that he was paid millions for after he left office, Greenspan going to work for a hedge fund after trashing our entire economy.

What is wrong with you people? Can't you think straight? Personally, I hold Bill Clinton responsible for signing NAFTA and allowing our good IT jobs to be outsourced to India. But if he can write a book that millions of people are willing to pay money for why is that wrong?

Hypocrites.

Your old hero, Ron Paul, made millions of dollars by selling neo-Nazi newsletters that called for mass imprisonment of black people based on the color of their skin, and the execution of all homosexuals to "stop AIDS." In its best tax-reported year, the newsletter business made him over $1 million.

Your other buddy John McCain pocketed millions of dollars in "consulting fees" that he "earned" in the 1980s while publicly defending Ivan Boesky and Charles Keating in the court of public opinion while they drained the coffers of the elderly.

And you're begrudging the Clinton family for making $100 million over 7 years through writing books, giving speeches, and investments?
