Help The World's Poor: Shut Down The Clinton Foundation

by Herman Cain: Free up the money to go to charities who actually do what they say they do.

Whenever the Clintons find their corruption exposed, you can always count on their cronies taking to the nation’s talk shows and making, er, creative arguments in their defense.

That has never been more true than this past week, when we learned that Hillary’s State Department basically operated as the shakedown wing of the Clinton Foundation. More than half of all the non-governmental parties who got meetings with Hillary during her time at State were major Clinton Foundation donors, and e-mails released by Judicial Watch demonstrated how the Clinton Foundation’s Doug Band operated in concert with Hillary crony Huma Abedin at State to make sure Foundation donors were taken care of by the government.

In short, the Clinton Foundation is a gigantic cash-grabbing racket disguised as a charity. The more we learn about it, the more honest people clamor for the Foundation to be shut down. That, as you might expect, has inspired a novel response from the professional dissemblers of ClintonWorld: The Clinton Foundation helps the world’s poor! If you want to shut it down, you must want to hurt the poor!

That’s a classic Democrat argument if there ever was one. If you want to get rid of our corrupt, ineffective, money-sucking program, you must hate the poor, minorities, women, the sick, or whoever. They usually offer it in defense of wasteful government programs, the implication being that if the wasteful government program went away, there would be no one to help whomever it is supposed to help.

Usually the opposite is true: If the wasteful government program wasn’t sucking up so much money, someone else could use that capital to much more effectively help those who need the help. And in the case of the Clinton Foundation, that’s really true.

Consider: During the years Hillary was Secretary of State, only $75 million of the $500 million the Clinton Foundation collected actually was used to help the causes the Clinton Foundation claims to help. That’s only 15 percent! The rest went to overhead like salary, benefits, travel, etc. In other words, 85 percent of all the money given to the Clinton Foundation was nothing more than a lifestyle subsidy for the Clintons and their friends.

And in 2013, the first year after Hillary left State, that 15 percent figure dropped to only 6.4 percent!

So every year, hundreds of millions of dollars are given to the Clinton Foundation, ostensibly to help people with various problems around the world. And close to 90 percent of it is spent on other things – primarily things that personally benefit the Clintons.

Anyone who argues that shutting this racket down would hurt the poor is crazy. If you really want to help the poor, shut down the Clinton Foundation and redirect those hundreds of millions to charities that actually do what they say they do.

Then again, you might theorize that many of the people who gave that money weren’t really trying to help the poor, but that they understood the nature of the Clinton Foundation racket and were just trying to make sure they could get favors from Bill and Hillary if they ever needed them. If that’s the case, maybe they wouldn’t redirect their money to legitimate charities. Still, almost anything they do with it would be better than greasing the dirty palms of the Clintons.
