Bill Clinton charging up to $1,500 for tickets during “conversation” tour

Bill Clinton…Ladies, let me tell you about “My Life”

I’m sure Juanita Broaddrick would like to have a conversation with ol’ Bill.

From NY Post: Bill Clinton will spend his summer rolling in dough.

Next month the former president is scheduled to crisscross the US and Canada in a promotional tour for his new novel, in some cases charging $1,500 a ticket for on-stage events, dubbed “A Conversation with President Bill Clinton.”

Clinton, already a best-selling author for his 2004 autobiography “My Life,” began raking in the cash for the fictional thriller that he wrote with mega-bestselling novelist James Patterson, before the book was finished. He and his co-author reportedly signed a seven-figure deal with Showtime last year for the rights to turn the “The President is Missing” into a TV series.

Frenzied bidding for the television rights for the book, which is scheduled to go on sale June 4, began at $5 million last fall among some of the biggest players in Hollywood, including Steven Spielberg and Ron Howard, according to published reports.

A spokeswoman for Showtime would not comment last week on the size of the final deal.

Clinton’s first novel tells the story of a sitting president who disappears from the White House in the midst of a looming cyber terrorist attack.

It’s not clear how much Clinton and Patterson made from the advance for the book. The book is being published in a unique deal involving two publishing houses — Alfred A. Knopf and Little, Brown & Co.

The novel is being called the publishing event of the year, and Clinton is scheduled to headline next month’s BookCon convention at the Javits Center.

Tickets for the former president’s summer-long North American tour to promote the book start at $10 per person and go as high as $1,500 for the special VIP passes.

A spokesman for Clinton refused to say whether he would be donating any proceeds from the novel to his family’s charitable foundation. “The Clintons support a broad range of groups every year through their family foundation,” said Clinton spokesman Angel Urena.

In addition to the book tour, Clinton will also headline events for the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

At the non-profit’s exclusive, private gala at an undisclosed venue in New York on Thursday, tickets range from $2,500 per person to $100,000 for a special access pass to the Clintons for a table for 10. Sting is also scheduled to perform at the event.

Bill Clinton agrees with Trump: The political system is rigged

That’s what former President Bill Clinton said — he who is the husband of a woman who may be “elected” POTUS tomorrow by a rigged electoral system.

bill-sees-ghosts-of-his-gropper-past

Bill made the remarks in a speech at a private HFA (Hillary for America) fundraiser at the home of Maryland State Senator Mike Miller in Chesapeake Beach, Maryland a year ago on October 19, 2015,

Peter Hasson reports for The Daily Caller, Nov. 5, 2016, that leaked transcripts of the speech reveal that, ironically, Bill Clinton actually agrees with one of Donald Trump’s major campaign themes — the political system is rigged against working class Americans.

The 8-page transcript of Bill Clinton’s speech was published by WikiLeaks and uploaded to Scribd. here. (You can also read it here, in FOTM‘s media library.)

This is what Bill Clinton said (p. 8 of transcript):

“And there are lots of people in the Democratic Party and lots of working people all over the world who are sick and tired of working their heart out and never getting a pay raise. And so they think the political system is rigged against them, which it is to some extent, and they think it doesn’t make any difference anyway, so they want to vote for whoever they think will raise the most hell.

By definition, the electoral system is a part of America’s political system, which means that when Bill Clinton said the U.S. “political system” is rigged, necessarily he included the electoral system.

Bill’s speech was also peppered with lies. Below are 5 examples:

Lie No. 1

Bill Clinton said:

“Something that’s really important to me – my foundation does a lot of work on AIDS, fighting AIDS, TB, malaria. And we lowered the price of AIDS medicine.” (p. 6 of transcript)

The truth:

The Clinton Foundation actually works hand-in-hand with pharmaceutical companies to keep the price of AIDs medicine high.

Ira Magaziner, CEO of the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Health Access Initiative, said in an email published by WikiLeaks that the Foundation has “always” assured drug companies that the Foundation would not pressure them to lower drug prices because that would lead to a “slippery slope” of lower drug prices in the U.S. and Europe. (See “WikiLeaks Podesta emails: Clinton Foundation works with Big Pharma to keep AIDS drug prices high”)

Lie No 2

Bill Clinton said:

When Hillary was elected Senator from New York . . . there was no governor at the time. Andrew Cuomo has done a good job at this, but there – no governor in 30 years had tried to develop New York’s economy outside the city and the collar counties around it. She went to the farmers on Long Island, she went to small manufacturers in upstate New York. She started in effect becoming their de facto governor. She got people into ecommerce before it was fashionable in little towns. I’ll never forget, I met this guy who was making the best fishing rods I ever saw, with three people. All of a sudden he had 12 employees because he quadrupled his orders and 100 percent of his customers were from Norway. That was a big deal in 2002. She did that. You watch – before this is over, you’re going to see all the Republican farmers from Long Island going to Iowa, New Hampshire, campaigning for her because they will tell you, ‘Nobody ever helped us before she did.'” (pp. 4-5 of transcript)

The truth:

From Jeremy Zremski, “Clinton’s record upstate: Progress amid a promise that fell short,” The Buffalo News, April 8, 2016:

What, exactly, did Hillary Clinton do for Buffalo and upstate during her eight years in the U.S. Senate?

The answer, as it often is with the Clintons, is complicated.

Clinton promised during her 2000 campaign to bring 200,000 jobs to upstate New York. She didn’t come close….

‘Hillary has a serious plan to create 200,000 new jobs upstate,’ an announcer intoned in one of her 2000 campaign ads.

On the contrary, federal statistics show that overall employment fell slightly during her eight years in the Senate . . . .”

Lie No. 3

Bill Clinton said, referring to Hillary:

“when she left office [as Secretary of State], the approval of the United States around the world was more than 20 points higher than it was when she took office.” (p. 6 of transcript)

The truth:

Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State for about 4 years, from January 21, 2009, to February 1, 2013. (Hillary actually stopped doing her job as secretary of state in December 2012 when she fell and had a brain concussion that took her more than a month to recover._

According to Gallup Poll, worldwide approval of the U.S. actually fell by at least 3 points between the time Hillary became secretary of state and when she left the post, from 49% to 46%.

world approval of US 2007-2015

Lie No. 4

Bill Clinton said, referring to Hillary:

“Whether in office or out of office, she has consistently gotten the job done in an honorable way.” (p. 8 of transcript)

The truth:

Abandoning four Americans — including two members of her State Department staff, Ambassador Chris Stephens and Information Officer Sean Smith — to die in Benghazi is dishonorable. Lying that the jihadist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, was provoked by an obscure video on Muhammad is dishonorable. (Note that world approval of the U.S. plummeted to 41% in 2012.) When grilled about her lies by Congress, sloughing it off with “What does it matter now?” is dishonorable. Conducting government business, including classified national security information, with an illegal unsecured private email server is dishonorable.

Then there are remarks by Bill Clinton in his speech at the Chesapeake Fundraiser which (unintentionally) perfectly describes Hillary. Here’s an example: In his speech, Bill Clinton said this about the GOP primary debates:

“These people actually think they can insult their way to the White House . . . .”

The truth:

In a speech on September 10, 2016, Hillary Clinton insulted millions of Americans when she called half of Trump’s supporters “a basket of deplorables” who are “irredeemable” racists, homophobes and xenophobes.

In fact, in an email on April 19, 2015, referring to Hillary Clinton, her campaign chairman John Podesta wrote:

“I know she has begun to hate everyday Americans

And yet, in his Chesapeake Beach speech, before admitting that “the political system is rigged,” Bill actually had the chutzpah to say that Hillary Clinton “deserves” the White House and that voters shouldn’t “disappoint her” by voting for somebody else:

“Whether in office or out of office, she has consistently gotten the job done in an honorable way. She deserves this (inaudible). And she will not disappoint you. But to get there, we have to not disappoint her.” (p. 8 of transcript)

No wonder self-coronated Queen Hillary went ballistic in a teleconference with the Laborers’ International Union of North America on Sept. 22, 2016, screaming into the camera: “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?”

To conclude, if we take Bill Clinton at his own words — that working class Americans think “the political system is rigged against them” and they “want to vote for whoever they think will raise the most hell” — Donald Trump is the man, not Hillary Clinton.

Owned by Wall Street and the darling of the entire corrupt, rotten establishment of the MSM, Hollywood, banks, unions, George Soros, and party (Democrat and Republican) élites, Hillary Clinton is the last person to raise hell, even less to “raise the most hell”.

Eww! Bill Clinton kisses woman on the mouth at campaign rally

This was what 69-year-old horndog Bill Clinton did at a recent campaign rally for his wife, Hillary:

Bill Clinton kisses woman at campaign rally 5-27-2016Despite everything Bill Clinton has done to women — harass, grope, molest, drop his trousers and demand a BJ, and rape — that middle-aged woman actually kissed him on the mouth. She should rinse her mouth out with germicide.

And what exactly was his left hand doing?

With willing and useful idiots like her, America is doomed.

Clinton charity arranged $2M pledge to firm owned by Bill’s ‘friend’

bill clinton and julie tauber mcmahon

Via NY Post: Bill Clinton’s foundation arranged a $2 million pledge to a power company partly owned by a wealthy blond divorcée — who some say is the frequent visitor to his home nicknamed “Energizer.”

The “commitment” to Julie Tauber McMahon’s firm from the Clinton Global Initiative was placed on its 2010 conference agenda at Clinton’s urging, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.

The initiative “commits $2 million to support the work of Energy Pioneer Solutions, a company founded to deliver energy savings to communities in rural America,” said a 2010 statement from the charity.

Clinton even went to bat for the company when it came to lobbying for federal funds. He helped steer an $812,000 federal grant to it by endorsing the funds via then-Energy Secretary Steven Chu, the Journal said.

McMahon owns 29 percent of Energy Pioneer Solutions, which was given the money to make people’s homes more energy-efficient. The fit, blond mother of three, who lives just minutes from Bill and Hillary Clinton’s home in Chappaqua, West­chester, is the daughter of Joel Tauber, a millionaire donor to the Democratic Party.

McMahon, 54, is rumored to be the woman dubbed “Energizer” by the Secret Service at the Clinton home because of her frequent visits, according to RadarOnline. Secret Service agents were even given special instructions to abandon usual protocol when the woman came by, according to journalist Ronald Kessler’s tell-all book, “The First Family Detail.” “You don’t stop her, you don’t approach her, you just let her go in,” says the book, based on agents’ accounts.

“Energizer” is described in the book as a charming visitor who sometimes brought cookies to the agents. The book describes one sun-drenched afternoon when agents took notice of the woman’s revealing attire.

“It was a warm day, and she was wearing a low-cut tank top, and as she leaned over, her breasts were very exposed,” an agent is quoted in the book as saying.“They appeared to be very perky and very new and full … There was no doubt in my mind they were enhanced.”

“Energizer” reportedly timed her arrivals and departures around Hillary Clinton’s schedule. McMahon has denied in reports having an intimate relationship with Bill Clinton.

The commitment to McMahon’s company raises red flags for the Clinton Global Initiative.

Other Clinton friends — including former Democratic congressional candidate Scott Kleeb, Democratic National Committee Treasurer Andrew Tobias and Mark Weiner — share ownership of Energy ­Pioneer Solutions.

Under federal law, tax-exempt nonprofits like Clinton’s are not supposed to act in anyone’s private interest, the Journal reported. Spokespeople for Bill and Hillary Clinton declined to comment. A foundation spokesperson defended the financial commitment as “a common practice in the broader philanthropic space.”

Trump Slams Hillary Clinton as ‘Nasty, Mean Enabler’ of Husband’s Affairs

Wonder how many lamps are going to go flying when Hillary hears about this…

trump clinton

From NBC News: An unrestrained Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton an “unbelievably nasty, mean enabler” who “destroyed” the lives of her husband’s mistresses during a rally in Oregon on Friday night.

The comments, made during an evening rally in Eugene, Ore., marked the sharpest tone he’s taken against the Democratic frontrunner since becoming his party’s presumptive nominee, and the first time he’s been so direct in referencing Bill Clinton’s affairs in months.

“She’s been the total enabler. She would go after these women and destroy their lives,” Trump said. “She was an unbelievably nasty, mean enabler, and what she did to a lot of those women is disgraceful.”

His comments came as part of a defense against recent attacks from Democrats focused on his controversial comments and stances on women’s issues. Trump told the crowd “nobody respects women more than me,” but in contrast, “nobody in this country, and maybe in the history of the country politically, was worse than Bill Clinton with women.”

Bill Clinton portrait

“Have you ever read what Hillary Clinton did to the women that Bill Clinton had affairs with? And they’re going after me with women?” he added, incredulously, without citing any specific examples or sources.

While it was his most caustic attack against the presumptive Democratic nominee on Friday night, it was by no means the only line of attack he opened against Clinton. He charged that she would be “sleeping” when national security crises hit at odd hours, tied her to NAFTA, and called her a “tool of Wall Street.” He also said he was the “last person she wants to run against…because my attitude is, I don’t care.”

Trump also took sharp aim at Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the liberal darling who’s been the subject of vice-presidential chatter in recent weeks, with whom Trump’s opened up a feud over social media in recent days. In front of a crowd of thousands on Friday night, Trump unveiled a new nickname for the Massachusetts senator: “Goofus.”

Clinton’s “got this goofy friend Elizabeth Warren, she’s on a Twitter rant, she’s a goofus,” he said. “This woman, she’s a basketcase. By the way, she’s done nothing in the United States. She’s done nothing.” He suggested Clinton choose Warren as her running mate because “without that [woman] card she would get nobody voting for her.”
