While appearing on MSNBC, the cable outlet known here as the official network of insane liberal hate, James Carville, a.k.a. “Snakehead,” whipped himself into a lather, declaring that kids will die and people will go to hell if the Clinton Crime Family Foundation is shut down.
On Monday, he defended the organization during an appearance on CNN.
According to Real Clear Politics:
“First of all, the Clintons never took a nickel out of the foundation,” Carville said Monday night on CNN. “In fact, they gave a million dollars. So let’s stop… the second thing is I’m sorry, but the foundation negotiated prices to lower malaria [drugs] to cents. I don’t know how many people — at Charity Watch they have a five star rated chairty. You can’t get a higher rating for a charity.”
“So the Clinton Foundation was, a, taking no money for the Clintons, raising money from rich people and giving it to poor people,” Carville said. “And all of a sudden, the press has decided that we’re going to go after this and shut it down. And you know what, you are probably going to be successful. There will be people that are going to die because of this.”
“Everything that I have been associated with Bill Clinton with, the three things I’m most proud of,” Carville said, “first, he stopped the genocide in Bosnia [note, the Bosnia civil war started on Clinton’s watch, too. And he did dick about the genocide in Rwanda… but #BlackLivesDon’tMatter, right?]. Second, the human genome project of which my kids and grandkids will forever thank him for. And third is the Clinton Foundation. The number of lives that they have [note: the Human Genome Project started under George H. W. Bush and reached completion late in George W. Bush’s first term].”
“Then why don’t you hear Hillary Clinton and others, more Democrats, making that argument?” CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked.
Here’s video of those comments:
Carville then made his argument at MSNBC, saying the organization “takes money from rich people and gives it to poor people,” which he claimed most people agree with.
He then added this little gem (Emphasis mine):
“If you ask me as a human being, eh, I’m not too sure. As a human being I think the foundation does an enormous amount of good. From a strictly political standpoint, yeah,” Carville said, invoking his Catholic sixth-grade teacher to say, “somebody is going to hell over this. Because somebody, now I’m not saying here—or somewhere is. This is saving people’s lives.”
So I looked it up in my Bible to see if that’s the case, and guess what? I found no mention of Clinton or the Crime Family Foundation. Imagine that…
Here’s video of that statement:
Never mind that new emails reveal the Hillary Clinton State Department gave special access to top donors…
Worse yet, according to Sean Davis, very little of what the Foundation gets actually goes to charity:
If you take a narrower, and more realistic, view of the tax-exempt group’s expenditures by excluding obvious overhead expenses and focusing on direct grants to charities and governments, the numbers look much worse. In 2013, for example, only 10 percent of the Clinton Foundation’s expenditures were for direct charitable grants. The amount it spent on charitable grants–$8.8 million–was dwarfed by the $17.2 million it cumulatively spent on travel, rent, and office supplies. Between 2011 and 2013, the organization spent only 9.9 percent of the $252 million it collected on direct charitable grants.
While some may claim that the Clinton Foundation does its charity by itself, rather than outsourcing to other organizations in the form of grants, there appears to be little evidence of that activity in 2013. In 2008, for example, the Clinton Foundation spent nearly $100 million purchasing and distributing medicine and working with its care partners. In 2009, the organization spent $126 million on pharmaceutical and care partner expenses. By 2011, those activities were virtually non-existent. The group spent nothing on pharmaceutical expenses and only $1.2 million on care partner expenses. In 2012 and 2013, the Clinton Foundation spent $0. In just a few short years, the Clinton’s primary philanthropic project transitioned from a massive player in global pharmaceutical distribution to a bloated travel agency and conference organizing business that just happened to be tax-exempt.
There’s more… a lot more, here.
Yes, this needs to be shut down and someone needs to be held accountable.
