Hillary Clinton’s “Foundational Warmongering”

FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE ROCKED BY WEAPONS DEAL ALLEGATIONS … 

|| By FITSNEWS || Autocratic regimes which donated heavily to the Clinton family foundation received billions of dollars worth of U.S. weapons courtesy of Hillary Clinton‘s state department – the latest headache to befall the presumed Democratic frontrunner.

Yeah … and you thought her crony capitalism on behalf of aircraft manufacturer Boeing was disturbing?

The latest Clinton revelations come on the heels of her “email-gate” – and revelations that her foundation failed to disclose contributions received by foreign governments.  But now we’re starting to piece together the reason for all the secrecy – and for Clinton’s stubborn refusal to answer questions.

“Should we be surprised? No. Should we be outraged and disgusted? Absolutely,” wrote Michael Krieger of the website Liberty Blitzkrieg.  “Of all the Clinton scandals, the following is the most dangerous to peace on earth.”

Clinton’s weaponization of some of the world’s most dangerous regimes was documented by reporters David Sirota and Andrew Perez of International Business Times.

Here’s the gut punch from that report … 

Under Clinton’s leadership, the State Department approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations whose governments have given money to the Clinton Foundation, according to an IBTimes analysis of State Department and foundation data. That figure — derived from the three full fiscal years of Clinton’s term as Secretary of State (from October 2010 to September 2012) — represented nearly double the value of American arms sales made to the those countries and approved by the State Department during the same period of President George W. Bush’s second term.

Damn …

Oh, the IBTimes report also found Clinton’s foundation was raking in cash from the military-industrial complex providing all those weapons, too …

American defense contractors also donated to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state and in some cases made personal payments to Bill Clinton for speaking engagements. Such firms and their subsidiaries were listed as contractors in $163 billion worth of Pentagon-negotiated deals that were authorized by the Clinton State Department between 2009 and 2012.

Unreal …

How much of a bonanza are we talking about here?

In all, governments and corporations involved in the arms deals approved by Clinton’s State Department have delivered between $54 million and $141 million to the Clinton Foundation as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments to the Clinton family, according to foundation and State Department records. The Clinton Foundation publishes only a rough range of individual contributors’ donations, making a more precise accounting impossible.

We knew Clinton had made the transition to “Republican”-style warmongering in an effort to bolster her 2016 prospects.  We had no idea, though, that she was basically using her post as Secretary of State to play the middleman in arms deals between repressive governments and the multinational defense conglomerates eager to load them up with American weapons.

You know, so we can have an excuse to go to war again …

Amazing.

How any Democrat – any American – could support Clinton’s candidacy in light of this sort of revelation is beyond us.  But they will … in droves.

Also, giving the escalated (and increasingly costly) warmongering coming out of the GOP these days, it’s unlikely Clinton will face much in the way of criticism for her actions.

And she sure as hell isn’t going to be criticized by the legacy media …
