Hillary's Losing It: Sanders Gets Under Her Skin About Energy Co. $$$$
By DICK MORRIS & EILEEN MCGANN / TheHillaryDaily.com
Bernie Sanders is driving Hillary crazy. He won't go
away. And he has the nerve to criticize her record on taking money from
fossil fuel companies.
How dare he!
Last week, she lost it when a Greenpeace advocate
asked whether she would refuse campaign contributions from energy
companies. Her mirthless smile morphed into a snarl as she became
visibly angry, raising her voice and jabbing her finger in the young
"I am sick and tired of the Sanders campaign lying about me. I'm sick of it."
Hillary angrily insisted that she didn't take money
from the oil and gas industry, just from people who work for them.
That's not true.
EARTH TO HILLARY: That's how corporations make campaign contributions.
The fact is that Hillary and Bill and the Clinton
Foundation have benefited from almost $400 MILLION from the energy
The total of her payments from oil, gas, and mining
interests to her Senate and Presidential campaigns, along with the
speaking fees paid to her and Bill, and donations to the Clinton
Foundation have netted the Clintons over $325 MILLION. If you add on
speaking fees and donations by oil-producing Middle Eastern countries,
the total is between $368 and $398 MILLION (Those countries include
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Brunei, Oman, and
Kuwait). That's almost $400 million.She previously claimed that if she did get money from
the energy industry, she doesn't remember. Either she's dumber than we
think, or she thinks we're really dumb.
That's a lot to forget. Especially since almost $20
million of it went directly into Bill and Hillary's joint bank accounts
and was reported as joint income.
Over the course of her career, Hillary has received
almost $2 million in direct campaign contributions from individuals who
work for oil and gas companies.
She says she's not a favorite of the energy companies. That's not true, wither.
In her current presidential campaign, she's already
received about $365,000 from the oil and gas folks. That makes her the
third top recipient of all 22 presidential candidates. Only Ted Cruz and
Jeb Bush -- both with ties to Texas oil companies, raked in more than
And energy industry lobbyists have jumped on the
Hillary Bandwagon. Her own campaign released the names of 159 registered
lobbyists who are bundlers for Hillary. Forty of them have worked
against climate control, supported offshore drilling, or promoted the
Keystone Pipeline and other energy issues. Bundlers raise over $100,000
each for her campaign.
The Keystone pipeline was a windfall for Bill and
Hillary. The Clintons cleaned up on Pipeline investors. Hillary was
personally paid $1.5 million by two Canadian banks that are investors in
the Keystone Pipeline right after she left the State Department, where
she subtly endorsed the Pipeline that she now opposes.
And Bill Clinton was paid over $10 million by TD Bank, a major Pipeline investor.
He also received another $1 million in speaking fees from other energy sources.
It didn't stop there. The Clinton Foundation benefited
from the kindness of energy companies. Duke Energy, Cheniere Energy,
Entergy. ExxonMobil, and NRG Energy all gave from $1 to $5 million.
Chevron and Energy Development gave between $500,000 -
$1 million while Hess, Noble Energy, and InterEnergy gave between
$250,000 - $500,000.
Chevron and ExxonMobil also chipped in $5 million each
for one of Hillary's pet projects: the U.S. Pavilion at the China Expo.
After that, both companies was featured at the Clinton Global
Hillary must have been out of the room -- or she certainly would have remembered.
And, finally, mega donor Canadian miming billionaire
Frank Giustra -- who has investments in the Keystone Pipeline, has
pledged over $300 million. Giustra also owns the Colombian oil company
Pacific Rubiales and other international energy companies.
So, Hillary's latest $400 million lie is easy to see through. No wonder Bernie is getting under her skin.
