Let's see if we can contextualize this for you: You already know that the Clinton Foundation failed to report tens of millions in foreign donations in their tax documents, a revelation that has forced the organization to re-file at least five years' worth of returns. You also already knew that some of those many undisclosed donations (which violated Hillary's transparency pledge) were related to a troubling transaction in which (a) the Russian government obtained the rights to a large chunk of US uranium interests, (b) investors and magnates connected to the deal profited handsomely, (c) the Clinton Foundation (and the Clinton themselves) pocketed millions, and (d) Hillary's State Department signed off on the whole thing -- before "repeatedly breaking" promises to mitigate national security concerns. Bloomberg and Fox News are reporting that a Clinton Foundation-tied group led by a man at the center of the uranium deal didn't disclose more than 1,000 foreign donors:

There are in fact 1,100 undisclosed donors to the Clinton Foundation, Giustra says, most of them non-U.S. residents who donated to CGEP...The reason this is a politically explosive revelation is because the Clinton Foundation promised to disclose its donors as a condition of Hillary Clinton becoming secretary of state. Shortly after Barack Obama was elected president in 2008, the Clinton Foundation signed a “memorandum of understanding” with the Obama White House agreeing to reveal its contributors every year. The agreement stipulates that the “Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative” (as the charity was then known) is part of the Clinton Foundation and must follow “the same protocols.” It hasn’t. Giustra says that’s because Canada’s federal privacy law forbids CGEP, a Canadian-registered charity, from revealing its donors.

Capitulation to violent intimidation is the order of the day.

Kowtowing to thuggery is today’s act of “respect” for the “disadvantaged” and “marginalized.” Yet the more we kowtow to thuggery, the more a thugocracy is enabled. “Top Charlie Hebdo cartoonist Luz says will no longer draw Mohammed,” AFP, April 29, 2015 (thanks to Pamela Geller): […]

Report: Kerry Told Iran He Wishes ‘U.S. Had a Leader like Iran’s Supreme Leader’

In a once rational and free America, this shocking statement from the Secretary of State would be met with immediate calls for his resignation. Imagine coveting a  leader like Iran’s Supreme Leader, who slaughters gays, imprisons and executes political dissidents — behind nuclear talks Iran executes political prisoners in droves — and beats women who aren’t fully covered.

Instead, the mainstream media hasn’t even covered this. The West is dying and no gives a fig.

Clinton: Justice System Needs Overhaul, End to 'Mass Incarcerations'

Image: Clinton: Justice System Needs Overhaul, End to 'Mass Incarcerations'Pointing to a wave of violence in Baltimore, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that the nation's criminal justice system has gotten "out of balance" and must be restored through steps such as the use of body cameras by every police department in the country.

"It's time to change our approach," Clinton said in her first major policy address since launching her presidential campaign earlier this month. "It's time to end the era of mass incarceration."

Clinton spoke in the days after violence and protests have swept through the streets of Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who suffered a spinal-cord injury while in police custody. Clinton condemned those instigating further violence, saying it disrespected the Gray family and only compounded the tragedy.

"The violence has to stop," she said.

In a speech at Columbia University, Clinton spoke of protests over policing in Ferguson, Missouri; Charleston, South Carolina; and in New York, and repudiated policies dating to her husband Bill Clinton's presidency that lengthened prison terms while putting more officers on the streets. "We need a true national debate about how to reduce our prison population," she said. "We don't want to create another incarceration generation."

She voiced support for alternative punishments for lower-level offenders and the need to address substance abuse and mental illness, which she said came up repeatedly during her recent campaign trips to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton also cited what she described as an "unmistaken and undeniable" pattern of violence against unarmed black men in the country and the unfairness of black men being more likely to be stopped and searched by police officers, charged with crimes and sentenced to longer prison terms.
