From the grand old New York Times, the newspaper that ultra-conservatives hate except when hating the great Times doesn’t reflect their biases, comes this:
The Times reported in an explosive piece on Thursday that Canadian records show the chairman of Russian-owned Uranium One gave over $2 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation, which the Clintons’ didn’t disclose. (My italics for emphasis.) At the same time, Russia pushed for control of a Canadian Uranium company.
A Kremlin-connected bank promoting stock in the company also reportedly paid Bill Clinton $500,000 for a speech in Moscow. Eventually, the Russian-Canadian uranium deal was approved.
“Whether the donations played any role in the approval of the uranium deal is unknown,” the Times writes. “But the episode underscores the special ethical challenges presented by the Clinton Foundation, headed by a former president who relied heavily on foreign cash to accumulate $250 million in assets even as his wife helped steer American foreign policy as secretary of state, presiding over decisions with the potential to benefit the foundation’s donors.”
I wanted to bring this to your attention, you of the Jitterbug Cult, because the only person I can see me voting for, for President, at this point in time, is me.
If one of you followers of the Jitterbugger wants to give me the money and resources it takes to run for President, and wants to join me in voting for me, pls contact me.*
Thank you very much for your consideration and, as American Presidents and potential presidential candidates are obliged to say with a straight face nowadays:
“God bless you and God bless America.”
Picture me with a straight face.
*If you were to support me for President, I would promise to buy an assault weapon for shopping at Safeway. Think about it.
