In his less-than-enthusiastic publicity of Hillary Clinton as a Democrat’s choice for President, Sen. Bernie Sanders decried “Greed, recklessness, and bootleg behavior” and announced that we couldn’t let “billionaires buy elections.” Perhaps his antithesis examine group detected what we have about Clinton’s connectors with a really entities he despises: Wall Street—which he’s accused of “gambling trillions in unsure financial instruments;” and “huge financial institutions” that he says: “simply have too most mercantile and domestic appetite over this country.”
Wall Street and a “huge financial institutions” are Clinton allies—supporting both her debate and donating large bucks to a Clinton Foundation.
In a collection of Democrat National Committee (DNC) emails WikiLeaks done open on Jul 23, DNC Research Associate Jeremy Berns tells his colleagues: “She [Clinton] doesn’t wish a people meaningful about her relations on Wall Street.” He adds: “She wants to grasp coherence and a best approach to do that is to keep a people ignorant.”
For a past 4 years, I’ve collaborated with citizen activist/researcher Christine Lakatos (she’s been during it for 6 years) on what we’ve called: President Obama’s green-energy crony-corruption scandal. Together we’ve constructed a singular largest physique of work on a topic. In her blog, a Green Corruption Files, she posts her downright research—what we affectionately impute to as a drink-from-the-fire-hydrant version. I, then, use her examine to breeze an overview that is suitable for a infrequent reader.
More recently, a efforts have morphed to embody a Democrats’ presidential nominee, as Lakatos found a same people are her “wealthy cronies,” too.
In Lakatos’ most-recent, and final Green Corruption File, expelled on Jul 19, she states: “While there are countless ways we can ‘buy entrance to a Clintons,’ I’m usually going to bond a dots to a Green Gangsters, that we’ve already determined are abounding domestic pals of President Obama, as good as other high-ranking Democrats and their allies, who were awarded hundreds of billions of ‘green’ taxpayer cash.”
Her extensive report, is “devoted to proof over a reasonable doubt that a Democrat unreserved presidential nominee, Hillary Rodham Clinton, is not on usually in bed with Big Money (Wall Street, the Uber-Rich, special interests groups and lobbyists) and Dark Money (Super PACS and Secret Cash), she’s also bankrolled and is in cahoots with––directly and by her father and her family foundation––the rich Green Gangsters, who are robbing U.S. taxpayers in sequence to ‘save a planet.’”
While a dozens of pages infer a impasse of names we know—like former clamp boss Al Gore, former Governor Bill Richardson, and billionaire donors Tom Steyer and Warren Buffett, and names we expected don’t know: David Crane, John Doerr, Pat Stryker, and Steve Westly—I’ve selected to prominence a Clinton’s Wall Street connectors that have benefited from a immature deals that were cut in a Obama White House and that will continue on if Clinton wins.
Lakatos points out: “Clinton’s ‘ambitious renewable appetite plans’ move distant beyond Obama’s immature idea that has been abundant with associate capitalism, corporate welfare, and corruption.” Along with some-more meridian rules, she “wants an open add-on for immature energy.” Remember a DNC’s central height includes: “the idea of producing 100 percent of electricity from renewable sources by 2050” and “a call for a Justice Department to examine hoary fuel companies for misleading the open on climate change.”
Three Wall Street names of my limited-word-count concentration are Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, and Bank of America. Each is a top-contributing Clinton debate supporter and a Clinton Foundation donor. They have benefited from a hundreds of billions in taxpayers dollars given out for immature appetite projects by a Obama Administration. All 3 have expectations that Clinton will continue a immature programs put in place by a Obama administration.
Goldman Sachs—donated between $1 million to $5 million and a Goldman Sachs Philanthropy Fund has contributed between $250,000 to $500,000 to a Clinton Foundation.
As Lakatos forked out in prior reports, Goldman Sachs is connected, around several roles, to during slightest 14 companies and/or projects that won immature taxpayer cash––a add-on that exceeded $8.5 billion. One specific example: Goldman is credited as a “exclusive financial adviser” for a now broke Solyndra ($570.4 million loss). Then there is now-bankrupt SunEdison—an early Goldman Sachs investment. SunEdison received $1.5 billion in sovereign and state subsidies. And, in 2010, Goldman Sachs handled the IPO of supervision winner, Tesla Motors that was awarded $465 million from a Department Of Energy (DOE) ATVM program—they got most some-more if we cause in a state and internal subsides: $2,406,805,253 to be exact. Also, according to Goldman, “In May 2013, [they] helped lift over $1 billion in new financing for Tesla Motors.”
Citigroup/Citi Foundation—donated between $1 million to $5 million to a Clinton Foundation.
This large bank is connected to approximately $16 billion of taxpayer money. Lakatos, in 2013, reported that Citi was actively concerned in securing a 1703/1705 DOE loans; was a approach investor; and/or served as an underwriter for a initial open charity (IPO) of during slightest 16 of Citi’s clients that perceived some form of supervision subsidies. One immature association where Citi is a vital financier is SolarCity, that has been subsidized by several impulse funds, grants and sovereign taxation breaks during a balance equaling almost $1.5 billion. (Billionaire Elon Musk is CEO of Tesla and Chairman during SolarCity. He’s a Clinton Foundation donor ($25 million to $50 million) and Hillary supporter, too.)
Bank of America/Bank of America Foundation—donated between $500,000 to $1 million to a Clinton Foundation.
Bank of America, among other immature efforts, participated in Project Amp—a four-year, $2.6 billion devise to place solar panels on rooftops in 28 states. At a time, a Wall Street Journal reported: “Bank of America Merrill Lynch section will yield $1.4 billion in loans for a project,” of that “the financing is prejudiced of Bank of America’s devise to put $20 billion of collateral to work in renewable energy, charge and other purify technologies that residence meridian change.” In a final days of a DOE loan module (September 2011), a DOE awarded a prejudiced pledge of $1.4 billion loan to Project Amp. According to a press release, Bank of America increasing a second environmental business beginning from $50 billion to $125 billion in low-carbon business by 2025 by lending, investing, collateral raising, advisory services and building financing solutions for clients around a world.
It’s critical to remember that meridian change—which is a substructure of a immature agenda—is prejudiced of a Clinton Foundation’s mission statement: “In communities opposite a globe, a programs are proof that we can confront a debilitating effects of meridian change in a approach that creates clarity for governments, businesses, and economies.” Additionally, a Foundation’s coffers were enriched when Clinton and her State Department staff solicited contributions from unfamiliar governments to a Clinton Global Initiative, as we minute in a coverage of her purify cookstove campaign.
In further to Clinton’s apparent Wall Street connections, one of a many extraordinary realizations that can be gleaned from a news on Hillary’s Horrendous Hypocrisy, is a fact that these companies—some of that would not be in existence but a grants and taxation credits—that perceived millions in taxpayer dollars, took a income and gave it to a Clinton Foundation and to a Clinton Campaign. As was a box with Clinton Foundation donor/campaign fundraiser George Kaiser, these billionaires are creation remunerative profits, during taxpayer expense, from bankrupted immature companies like Solyndra.
In short, we, a taxpayers, are subsidizing a well-connected millionaires and billionaires—and Hillary Clinton is prejudiced of all of it. Meanwhile, she admonishes a normal American to fight meridian change by pushing reduction and shortening a personal use of electricity.
Bernie Sanders was right to be alarmed. Huge financial institutions do have too most domestic power. Wall Street billionaires are perplexing to buy Clinton a White House. In return, she’ll be certain their immature appetite investments compensate off for them by perfectionist that America go green.
