Can We Afford Another Crooked President?

In today’s New York Times the following scandal has been revealed.

“Late on Sept. 6, 2005, a private MD-87 jet plane carrying the Canadian mining financier Frank Giustra touched down in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Several hundred miles to the west a fortune awaited: highly coveted deposits of uranium that could fuel nuclear reactors around the world. And Mr. Giustra was in hot pursuit of an exclusive deal to tap them. Kazakhstan has 1/5 th of the Worlds Uranium deposits and it is mined by Kazatomprom.

Unlike more established competitors, Mr. Giustra was a newcomer to uranium mining in Kazakhstan, a former Soviet republic, with a horrible human rights record. But what his fledgling company lacked in experience, it made up for in connections. Accompanying Mr. Giustra on his luxuriously MD-87 jet that day was a former president of the United States, Bill Clinton. It is also worth mention that he also is a board member of “international Crisis Group” that has George Soros and Wesley Clark as members.

Within two days, corporate records show that Mr. Giustra also came up a winner when his company signed preliminary agreements giving it the right to buy into three uranium projects controlled by Kazakhstan’s state-owned uranium agency, Kazatomprom. Mr.Giustra’s Canadian Mining Company UrAsia produces about 1,8-million pounds of uranium a year and plans to accelerate the development of two other uranium mines in Kazakhstan. It didn’t hurt his cause that the night they arrived they had dinner at the palatial home of the President of Kazakhstan!
Just months after the Kazakh pact was finalized, Mr. Clinton’s charitable foundation received its own windfall: a $31.3 million donation from Mr. Giustra that had remained a secret until he acknowledged it last month. The gift, combined with Mr. Giustra’s more recent and public pledge to give the William J. Clinton Foundation an additional $100 million, secured Mr. Giustra a place in Mr. Clinton’s inner circle, an exclusive club of wealthy entrepreneurs in which friendship with the former president has its privileges”.
This is just one more financial deal that the Clinton’s are or were involved in that smell to high heaven of corruption and quasi-legal kick backs.
If Senator Clinton is running on her experience in the White House when husband Bill was President. She also must be culpable for the shady deals they have been involved in. She can hide behind the abused wife mantle when the Lewinski issue is discussed, but the “shady” financial deals and renting out the Lincoln bedroom are fair game for criticism.
First there was White Water where Hillary Clinton’s relationship with her employer, the Rose Law, firm suddenly became the legal representative for James McDougal’s Savings and Loan Company Madison Guaranty.When it declared bankruptcy it cost the U.S. taxpayers over 68 million dollars.
The secretive campaign money, allegedly given in a Chinese restaurant in Los Angeles, from the Chinese Communists, involving convicted felon Charlie Trie, during Clinton’s second Presidential campaign.
And then Janet Reno, Attorney General, had to investigate claims that Clinton allowed “soft money”, raised to promote the Democratic Party and its positions on issues of policy, to be diverted into the effort to elect Clinton and Vice- President Gore. If that happened, and the President knew it, a crime was committed.
There was the claim that he and Gore authorised White House staff to use telephones in the White House to solicit campaign funds. A clear violation of the law!
Clinton’s pardon of Marc Rich, a big contributor to Clinton Campaigns, just before he left office is very suspect. U.S. pardon attorney Roger Adams says “when the White House sent over Rich’s name for pardon consideration — only a few hours before the President was due to leave office — there was never any mention of Rich being a fugitive”. There is also suspicion that donations made to Clinton campaigns and to the Clinton presidential library by Rich’s ex-wife, Denise, could be a quid pro quo for the pardon. Source: Time Magazine
Add to this the Peter Paul lawsuit against the Clintons that claims malfeasance was involved in fund raising for a Clinton Gala ,using White House personel ( Kelly Crawford)to solicit contributors to the event being arranged by Paul. The Federal Elections Committee eventually fined the Senatorial Campaign Committee $35,00 and Indicted Senator Clinton’s financial campaign director. John Armor, an Election Law Expert, was quoted as saying Hillary Clinton was “involved in the largest election law fraud in U.S. history. Source: Doug Ross Journal
Do we really want this pair in the White House again?
