“Bill Clinton’s last-minute pardon of Marc Rich, the shadowy commodities trader who fled to Switzerland in 1983 to avoid American justice, was a shocking abuse of presidential power and a reminder of why George W. Bush’s vow to restore integrity to the Oval Office resonates with millions of Americans who otherwise disagree with the new president’s politics.”…NY Times, January 24, 2001

“President Carter Sees Quid Pro Quo in Rich Pardon

Former president Jimmy Carter said Tuesday that he believes there was a connection between Bill Clinton’s pardon of fugitive billionaire Marc Rich and the financial contributions Rich made.

“I don’t think there is any doubt that some of the factors in his pardon were attributable to his large gifts,” Carter said during a speech at Georgia Southwestern State University.

“In my opinion, that was disgraceful,” he added.

The former president did not say whether the gifts in question were those Rich lavished on numerous charities over the years – or money Rich may have funneled to the Democratic Party, Mrs. Clinton’s Senate campaign and the Clinton Library fund using his ex-wife Denise as a conduit.

But the same day Carter commented on the Pardongate-gift connection, his former White House chief of staff Hamilton Jordan said that he would have been forced to resign if he had suggested pardoning donors.

“[President Carter] would have thrown me out of the Oval Office and probably fired me on the spot,” Jordan wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece.”

From the NY Post January 17, 2016.

“Bill Clinton’s pardon of fugitive Marc Rich continues to pay big

Fifteen years ago this month, on Jan. 20, 2001, his last day in office, Bill Clinton issued a pardon for international fugitive Marc Rich. It would become perhaps the most condemned official act of Clinton’s political career. A New York Times editorial called it “a shocking abuse of presidential power.” The usually Clinton-friendly New Republic noted it “is often mentioned as Exhibit A of Clintonian sliminess.”

Congressman Barney Frank added, “It was a real betrayal by Bill Clinton of all who had been strongly supportive of him to do something this unjustified. It was contemptuous.”

Marc Rich was wanted for a list of charges going back decades. He had traded illegally with America’s enemies including Ayatollah Khomeini’s Iran, where he bought about $200 million worth of oil while revolutionaries allied with Khomeini held 53 American hostages in 1979.

Rich made a large part of his wealth, approximately $2 billion between 1979 and 1994, selling oil to the apartheid regime in South Africa when it faced a UN embargo. He did deals with Khadafy’s Libya, Milosevic’s Yugoslavia, Kim Il Sung’s North Korea, Communist dictatorships in Cuba and the Soviet Union itself. Little surprise that he was on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List.

Facing prosecution by Rudy Giuliani in 1983, Rich fled to Switzerland and lived in exile.”

“Rich died in 2013. But his business partners, lawyers, advisers and friends have showered millions of dollars on the Clintons in the decade and a half following the scandal.”

“Then there’s Russian investor Sergei Kurzin. He worked for Marc Rich in the 1990s, traveling around Russia looking for suitable investment opportunities in the crumbled former Soviet Union.

An engineer by training, Kurzin has been involved in lucrative deals in Kazakhstan and other countries, including the lucrative Uranium One deal that involved Bill Clinton and Frank Giustra.

Russia bought 20 percent of all uranium production capacity in the US, a deal that needed to be signed off on by the State Department when it was headed by Hillary Clinton. While the deal was going through, Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 to give a speech in Moscow, paid for by a Russian investment bank promoting the uranium deal.

Kurzin, meanwhile, donated $1 million to the Clinton Foundation.”

    “Mr. Clinton was fully aware that pardoning Mr. Rich, the ex-husband of Denise Rich, a prominent fund-raiser for the Clintons and the Democratic Party, would carry a distinct taint and invite irate protests from federal prosecutors like Mary Jo White in Manhattan. That is probably why he kept it a secret that he was considering a pardon, bypassing the normal process in which the Justice Department vets pardon applications and submits them to the president with a recommendation. Small wonder that Ms. White and other current and former law enforcement officials are said to be livid. Mr. Clinton’s irresponsible use of his pardoning authority has undermined the pursuit of justice.”

    ………..AND to add insult to that injury, Mr.McCain’s snotnosed little granddaughter is all miffed because Donald Trump done some verbal belittling of her grandfather, and as a result she is going to vote for Hillary. That is ok though because when the final count is read, and she discovers the truth about the POS she voted for she will end up herself TAINTED for the rest of her SLIMEY LITTLE life.

    Judicial Watch: FBI Investigation Documents of IRS Scandal

    JULY 27, 2016
    Reveal Top Washington IRS Officials Knew About Targeting of “Tea Party” Groups Two Years Before Disclosing it to Congress and Public

    FBI interview with IRS senior official reveals: “he thought the cases were being pulled based upon political affiliations”

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released 294 pages of new Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) “302” documents revealing that top Washington IRS officials, including Lois Lerner and Holly Paz, knew that the agency was specifically targeting “Tea Party” and other conservative organizations two full years before disclosing it to Congress and the public. An FBI 302 document contains detailed narratives of FBI agent investigations. The Obama Justice Department and FBI investigations into the Obama IRS scandal resulted in no criminal charges.

    The FBI 302 documents confirm the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) 2013 report that said, “Senior IRS officials knew that agents were targeting conservative groups for special scrutiny as early as 2011.” Lerner did not reveal the targeting until May 2013, in response to a planted question at an American Bar Association conference. The new documents reveal that then-acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller actually wrote Lerner’s response: “They used names like Tea Party or Patriots and they selected cases simply because the applications had those names in the title. That was wrong, that was absolutely incorrect, insensitive, and inappropriate.”

    The FBI documents also reveal that IRS officials stated that the agency was targeting conservative groups because of their ideology and political affiliation in the summer of 2011. According to one senior tax law specialist, “The case seemed to be pulled because of the applicant’s political affiliation and screening is not supposed to occur that way … [Redacted] said he thought the cases were being pulled based upon political affiliations.” And IRS senior official Nancy Marks, appointed by Miller to conduct an internal investigation stated, “Cincinnati was categorizing cases based on name and ideology, not just activity.”

    Judicial Watch obtained the new documents through a federal court order in a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (Judicial Watch v Department of Justice (No. 1:14-cv-01239)).

  6. TO MISTER KISS HER KAN……….
    ………..YOU DO HAVE OPTIONS IF YOU DO NOT LIKE THE FACT THAT IN AMERICA WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO SAY WHATEVER WE CHOOSE TO SAY. ONE OF THOSE OPTIONS IS GO SOMEWHERE WHERE PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH. AS FOR ME ……….YOU CAN GO TO HELL IF YOU CHOOSE. WE IN AMERICA WILL SAY WHATEVER WE CHOOSE TO SAY, AND AS LONG AS OUR CONSTITUTION GUARANTEES THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH WE WILL PROBABLY KEEP RIGHT ON DOING SO. IT IS ONLY SINCE THE “FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE” MANURE BEGAN THAT MANY AMERICANS HAVE BEEN IMPRISONED WITHOUT CHARGE FOR DOING NOTHING MORE THAN SAYING WHAT THEY BELIEVE, WHICH ONCE AGAIN THE BILL OF RIGHTS GUARANTEES. TO BE ARRESTED FOR BREAKING A LAW THAT DOESN’T EXIST IS PROOF OF THE TYRANNOUS GOVERNMENT WHICH NOW EXISTS IN AMERICA. MISTER KAN WHEN YOU BECOME A CITIZEN OF AMERICA YOU ALSO BECOME A SUBJECT OF OUR LAWS…….BY THE WAY ARE YOU A CITIZEN OF AMERICA? ALSO THE SAME BILL OF RIGHTS GUARANTEES THE RIGHT OF ANY PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE TO SAY WHATEVER HE TOO CHOOSES TO SAY……….AND TO THAT END I REITERATE IF YOU ARE OFFENDED BY MR TRUMPS REMARKS THEN YOU CAN GO SOMEWHERE ELSE……….OR INVEST IN A SET OF EARPLUGS..

    …………if a TAX audit is brought against someone as a result of pre planned, deliberate, and otherwise INTENDED act designed solely for the purpose of harassment, the person or entity targeted has the right under the law to CROSS COMPLAIN VIGOROUSLY……even to the extent of a civil lawsuit against the offenders both at a personal level , as well as against the offending agency to recover compensatory damages, as well as punitive damages. NOT FANTASY……PLAIN FACT! TAX AUDITS ARE WHAT THEY ARE…….AND THAT ONLY! BUT WHEN THE ALLEGED AUDIT IS IN REALITY A DELIBERATE ACT DESIGNED TO HARRASS SOMEONE, OR AN ORGANISATION IT BECOMES A PROSECUTEABLE CRIMINAL ACT.

    Google’s extraordinary access to Obama revealed as White House visitor logs show 427 meetings between company and administration officials

    Top lobbyist visited the White House 128 times, visitor logs show – more than any other lobbyist

    Google officials have been to the White House a total of 427 times, holding 363 meetings

    Top officials from President Obama to his chief of staff and senior policy officials gave face time to company officials

    By Geoff Earle, Deputy Us Political Editor

    When top White House officials want to know what Google executives are thinking, they don’t need to go near a computer – since company officials have been hovering at the White House about once a week through the course of the Obama administration, White House logs reveal.

    The tech giant’s top lobbyist, Johanna Shelton, has visited the White House a total of 128 times since President Obama got elected in 2009.

    Shelton visited the White House more than any top 50 lobbying firm, according to White House visitor logs analyzed by a nonprofit called the Google Transparency Project that is critical of the company’s influence.

    Shelton met four times with President Obama himself, clocking more White House face time than any other industry lobbyist, Watchdog.org reported.

    According the data, she visited more than the lobbyists for five other tech giants combined. In fact, she visited the White House 40 percent more often than her second and third place rivals, lobbyists for Blue Cross / Blue Shield and Exxon/Mobil.

  9. Overwhelming Evidence That Obamacare Caused Premiums To Increase Substantially

    Two scholars at the renowned Brookings Institution, Loren Adler and Paul Ginsburg, have published an analysis finding that “average premiums in the individual market actually dropped significantly upon implementation of the ACA [Affordable Care Act].” This contrasts with a plethora of evidence, including a rigorous 2014 Brookings study, showing that the ACA significantly increased premiums. In this post, I discuss methodological concerns with the Adler and Ginsburg approach as well as evidence that leads most scholars to reach a very different conclusion.
