The Politisite Weekend Rant : The Clinton’s Prosper under a Bush Economy
By Albert N. Milliron
The Math Doesn’t Add up. Anyone figure out that 15.4 Million is not accounted for? That is where you should look. There is a Persian Connection to Pres. Clinton that is not listed. Why wouldn’t they want us to know? Do they really think we won’t re-do the Math? The Math comes out to 94 Million not 109 Million. 15.4 Million is missing. Gottcha, a Dubai connection from a off shore account called Yucaipa Global Opportunities Fund I. So what did the Former President do for Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid al- Maktoum?
What about your privacy? Bill Clinton received another $800,000 in 2006 and 2007 from data-mining company infoUSA owned by Vinod Gupta. (1) What did Clinton do for this money? Maybe sold democratic donors personal information for his own wealth. You might want to be careful when you send Hillary a check? (2)
I didn’t see that extra check wrote out to the IRS. Remember President Clinton a related to America that he didn’t pay enough taxes. President Bush Reminded him, in the State of the Union address, that the IRS does take cash or checks. (3) I hear most folks say, “wow they gave 10% of their income to Charity (4), how wonderful”. A perfect example of a Liberal telling others the government should take care of the poor. Hey Bill, Hill you get 12 Million a year.. You need all that?? How about the countries you deserted Somalia, Rwanda??? If you think your taxes are so low and the government isn’t doing enough. How about oh lets say 6 million a year?
I love these people running for president that make tons of money and give 10% or 4% in Obama’s case. Wow a cool 1.2 million most of which went to his own Clinton organization, which really means a way to spend money under a not for profit to cover your traveling expences. Sure , you keep 6 million for yourself and wife. Can you live on that?
Here is my other Rant for the day. How about a means test for former presidents to have a Secret Service detail? Why can’t the Clinton’s pay for it? I understand poor presidents and wives should have a detail for National security reasons. We don’t need an ex-president taken as a hostage. But if you make 12 million a year, couldn’t you hire you own security detail? Hey Bill it costs the taxpayers of America 38,000 dollars (5) each time you make a speech for 30,000 dollars. How about quit speaking and you would have saved the government 30 million dollars in secret service fees.
And my rant continues. Bill Clinton had investments in off shore accounts? Thats right Bill is so pro-American he invests money where the IRS can’t look at the books. What about investing in America? Hire a few people.
What will the Clinton Public Relations firm say on Monday. Oh I love spin! This just shows the Clinton’s can make money, wouldn’t it be great to have these two back in the White House so they can translate their expertise for making money to helping hard working Americans and America’s economy.
I say, if the Bush economy is so bad, how could you make all that money and raise all that money from all your donors. Yeah, things are so bad that people making 30K a year are sending 2 grand to you so you can fix this awful economy

Annual tax information is available for download below:
For the past four years, the Clintons have jetted around on Vinod Gupta’s corporate plane, to Switzerland, Hawaii, Jamaica, Mexico — $900,000 worth of travel. The former president secured a $3.3 million consulting deal with Gupta’s technology firm. His presidential library got a six-figure gift, too.
Gupta, whose big donations to the Democratic Party earned him a Lincoln Bedroom overnight when Bill Clinton was president, has emerged as a key benefactor of Clinton’s post-presidency — and Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential candidacy.
(2)Vinod “Vin” Gupta
According to New York Times report, InfoUSA, which compiles consumer information and sells it to direct marketing companies, sold the names of senior citizens, including millions with Alzheimer’s disease and others it identified as gamblers, with labels that said things such as, “These people are gullible.
(3) 2008 State of the Union Address
Others have said they would personally be happy to pay higher taxes. I welcome their enthusiasm. I’m pleased to report that the IRS accepts both checks and money orders. (Laughter and applause.)
$10.2 million in charitable contributions. The contributions went to a family foundation run by the Clintons
For Clinton, the agency provided coverage for 267 protections days and 418 protective visits. The current cost per day of protecting a candidate is about $38,000 for the agency. Sullivan expects that to rise to the agency’s estimate of $44,000 per day by the end of the campaign.
