NYT Editors Ignore Clinton Foundation Racketeering Practices

NYT Editors Ignore Clinton Foundation Racketeering Practices

by Stephen Lendman

More than any previous time in US history, America seems poised to anoint a known legally, ethically and morally tainted candidate to the nation’s highest office - testimony to its unprecedented evil, its threat to world peace and what remains of fundamental freedoms.

Hillary more than any previous presidential aspirant is unfit to serve - belonging in prison, not high office, racketeering one of her many high crimes.

Trump was right saying it’s hard knowing where the Clinton Foundation ended and the State Department began. As America’s chief foreign policy official, Hillary focused mainly on waging war and selling influence.

She and husband Bill became super-rich by corrupt pay-to-pay practices. Foreign regimes, corporate predators, and wealthy individuals had to donate plenty to their foundation to gain access to Hillary while at State.

It was “set up as a business to profit from public office,” said Trump - while masquerading as a charitable NGO, the Clintons stashing millions of dollars in tax havens, self-enriching by other dubious practices.

Clintons, Inc. best describes them - deplorable figures representing the worst of responsible governance.

NYT editors tepidly urged they cut ties to their foundation if Hillary succeeds Obama, while falsely claiming no evidence links them to wrongdoing.

There’s plenty but FBI investigators and Justice Department officials ignore it - numerous serious crimes, ranging from perjury for lying to Congress about maintaining classified State Department documents on her home server to using her foundation as a money-laundering racket to orchestrating naked aggression against nonbelligerent countries.

Bill and Hillary created their foundation for self-enrichment, around 10% of funds received used for charitable work to make fraud look legitimate.

Times editors lied, claiming Bill “created the foundation in 2001 as a vehicle to fund his presidential library.” They lied saying he and Hillary used funds for charitable work - failing to explain limited projects undertaken were cover for racketeering self-enrichment.

What The Times doesn’t report is more important than what it does, and what it explains is rife with misinformation and Big Lies. Racketeering operations like the Clinton Foundation should be shut down, their officials prosecuted for wrongdoing, especially Bill and Hillary - holding them fully accountable for high crimes too serious to ignore.

Not according to Times editors, tepidly saying if Hillary succeeds Obama, she, Bill and Chelsea should “end their operational involvement in the foundation and its affiliates for the duration of her presidency,” duplicitously adding:

“The Clinton Foundation has become a symbol of the Clintons’ laudable ambitions…” What rubbish!!

Times editors have things backwards. Racketeering foundation practices and other Clinton crime family wrongdoing show lawlessness by high government officials pays. 

They remain unaccountable no matter what they do. A third Clinton co-presidency may exceed the worst of anything they’ve previously done - humanity left to pay the price for their high crimes.
