“On the Holmes Front, with Frank Holmes”
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton implied that the NRA secretly took money from the Russian government to bring down her brilliant presidential campaign in 2016.
But a fresh political scandal shows that it was actually her campaign that hid tens of thousands of dollars in funding from her government-funded donors.
Hillary’s a horrible politician, but she’s a perfect example of the two things anti-American politicians always do: They shift the blame, and they lecture the American people on how much their country sucks.
After former President Barack Obama got elected, he went on a global apology tour, groveling and begging the Muslim world to please forgive America for defending herself.
Since Hillary didn’t win the presidential election, she has gone on a tour to explain why she lost.
For 17 months, she has told anyone who will listen it’s not her fault – it was the Russians, racism, sexism, James Comey, fake news, the Democratic Party, WikiLeaks, Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama, misogyny, the Green Party, women too stupid to think for themselves, men too stupid to see through President Donald Trump, journalists who didn’t tell the American people just how brilliant she was, and the list goes on.
She’s droned on so long and insulted so many Americans that her fellow Democrats are begging her to go back to drinking and taking long walks in the woods.
Instead, Hillary added a brand new scapegoat this week.
“You know the NRA has spent more money on me than any other candidate,” she said at a #MeToo event on Tuesday.
“We’ll find out if any of that was Russian money,” she said.
Answers like that make you wonder if Hillary has been drinking wine – or vodka – after all.
There’s zero evidence that the NRA took Russian funding. The last thing Russia wants is a well-armed enemy that knows how to hit a target.
But Hillary dragged that Red Square herring out to cover up her own dirty little finance scandal, which has been conveniently blacked out the mainstream media.
The Federal Election Commission just slapped one of Hillary’s donors with a hefty fine for hiding its contributions.
Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin did not report $116,898 in campaign contributions to Democrats as required by law.
Half of that went to Hillary Rodham Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, the other half to Democrat Russ Feingold.
The Planned Parenthood affiliate didn’t report either donation within 48 hours, as required by law. As a matter of fact, 90 percent of its campaign donations in the quarter before the 2016 elections weren’t reported accurately.
“This error was due to a misunderstanding,” Planned Parenthood told the FEC. Some low-level, unnamed employee “mistakenly believed 48-hour reports were not required unless expenditures were made within 20 days of the election.” Oops!
The FEC let the group wriggle out by agreeing to pay a $5,850 civil penalty this week.
With Hillary’s flagrant lawbreaking, the one offense the FEC happened to catch is guaranteed to be a drop in the bucket. It’s probably just a fraction of illegal spending from Planned Parenthood alone.
Hillary wants the feds to investigate the NRA – because she wants to jump on the Parkland bandwagon – but the NRA spent $30 million supporting Trump in 2016. Planned Parenthood launched a $30 million get-out-the-vote drive for Hillary…in six states alone.
In 2016, Planned Parenthood and its affiliates gave $38 million to outside political groups – pro-Hillary PACs, Democratic lobbyists, and feminist activists – to put Clinton in the White House.
And the group spent $40 million on “public policy” and $175 million on other shady, politically charged efforts in one year, Alexandra DeSanctis reported at the National Review.
And DeSanctis points out one other major difference: “Planned Parenthood also — and unlike the NRA — rakes in over half a billion dollars in government funding each year.”
Do you see the game yet? Democrats give taxpayer money to their buddies on the far-Left, like Planned Parenthood. Those groups live high on the hog – but they skim a little off the top and recycle some of it back to the Democrats as campaign contributions. They don’t always report them, to keep the public in the dark.
Then, the liberals chalk the whole thing up to “mistakes” and “misunderstandings.” As long as Democrats are in power, the government forgives them and moves on.
Then raises taxes and put your money through the cycle all over again.
Trump got elected to put a stop to this, and he should make an example out of this. Every chapter of Planned Parenthood should be audited for illegal campaign donations and fined to the full extent of the law.
And crooked Hillary needs make one last tour stop… in prison.
