… How Much Smoke ?? [#Bill Clinton Foundation]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,November 10th,2016

.. before there is a roaring fire , with the connections having been made ..

.. there are tons of circumstantial evidence , here , folks . Convictions in court have been won on far , far less than this . Now this kind of corrupt crap emerges , and from where ?? …. Sweeden ..

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post // interview segment ..

.. those companies [Ericksen and Volvo , among them] deposited their ” contributions ” into the Sweedish arm of the William J. Clinton Foundation . Doing so gave those folks cover from public exposure , at least at the time . What it also did was give them influence with the Clintons [both of them] ..

.. so when are we going to get a special prosecutor appointed to investigate all of this mess ?? …

… John Kitzhaber needs to Leave [#resignation]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,February 13th,2015

.. Governor Kitz has made a colossal mess of things in Oregon .

.. what was he thinking ? Or , to be more accurate , what did he refuse to think about ? …

.. [h/t — OregonLive.com]..
.. [link] to the editorial …

.. no , I am not a real big fan of the [Portland] Oregonian . They are most definitely LameStream Media – archtypes . However , in this case , they have put it out pretty well …

The questions about Kitzhaber’s judgment and competence ask themselves.  Is he so oblivious that he had no idea that campaign advisers were helping his girlfriend line up employment marked by ethical red flags? Is he really so clueless that he had no idea how much money Hayes collected through her fellowship, which would explain his apparently incomplete ethics filings? Or, alternatively, did he know and fail to act? Both possibilities are damning, and it’s difficult to imagine alternatives that are not.

Whether through gross inattention or complicity, Kitzhaber has broken faith with Oregonians. His career in Oregon politics is one of great accomplishment, but his past success does not excuse the mess he has made of the office with which Oregonians entrusted him.  He is now less a governor than a source of unending distraction. He can no longer lead Oregon effectively and should resign. His constituents deserve better.
