Since the beginning of 2014, the Clintons have earned over $25 million in speaking fees. And since Hillary left the State Department, the Clinton’s earnings have nearly doubled.
Clinton was a tough talker on illegal immigration during his 1996 State of the Union speech. In fact, some are saying that the favored president of the Left sounds a lot like Donald Trump does today.
A new video by NumbersUSA compares Clinton’s statements from that time with Trump’s recent comments on illegal immigration. Here’s what he said in his SOTU speech:
“After years of neglect, this administration has taken a strong stand to stiffen the protection of our borders. We are increasing border controls by 50 percent. We are increasing inspections to prevent the hiring of illegal immigrants. And tonight, I announce I will sign an executive order to deny federal contracts to businesses that hire illegal immigrants.”
Sen. Feinstein’s Husband to Make a Billion from Government Deal
Via NY Post:
Ever wonder how lowly paid lawmakers leave office filthy rich?
Sen. Dianne Feinstein is showing how it’s done.
The US Postal Service plans to sell 56 buildings — so it can lease space more expensively — and the real estate company of the California senator’s husband, Richard Blum, is set to pocket about $1 billion in commissions.
Blum’s company, CBRE, was selected in March 2011 as the sole real estate agent on sales expected to fetch $19 billion. Most voters didn’t notice that Blum is a member of CBRE’s board and served as chairman from 2001 to 2014.
This feat of federal spousal support was ignored by the media after Feinstein’s office said the senator, whose wealth is pegged at $70 million, had nothing to do with the USPS decisions.
When the national debt is $18 trillion, a billion seems like small change.
Longtime timber executive Rick Holley returns nearly $2 million worth of stock.
Well, here’s something you don’t see too often. Or maybe never…
Rick Holley is CEO of Plum Creek Timber Co. PCL0.50%, a Seattle-based real estate investment trust that owns and manages around 6.8 million acres of timberland in 19 states. Today Holley disclosed, via a regulatory filing, that he has returned 44,445 restricted stock units back to the company because “he does not believe that he should receive such an award unless Plum Creek’s stockholders see an increase in their investment return.”
