near miss

When you think about the 2016 election we sure had a near miss. I am thankful our country wised up and did not allow a president who would essentially sell our country to the highest bidder (pay for play).

The Clinton foundation is now in a death spiral after Clintons loss. Pretty telling. Countries were not paying to be charitable, they were paying for influence and control.

thankfully we missed that bullet by voting Trump in.

God bless America!

Now that the election is over and Hillary Clinton lost, it’s time to shut down the Clinton Foundation fundraising machine charitable organization. That’s right, Hillary’s Clinton Global Initiative will be formally ending its operation on April 15th. CGI is described as “the networking event of choice for corporations, nonprofits, nongovernmental organizations and wealthy philanthropists,” and it was allegedly designed for the expressed purpose of raising funding for a variety of charitable causes. And if you believe that, we have a bridge to sell you.
With accusations swirling during the campaign that the Clinton Foundation operated as little more than a pay-to-play fund raising scheme, the announcement that the CGI would be shutting down is not exactly a surprise. Why would a charitable organization that had been successfully generating funding determine it was best to end operations? One could argue that before the election, with Hillary fully expecting to win, she wanted to cut ties in order to end the controversy. That would make sense, but after her surprising election loss why shut it down? After all, charities still need funding?
To add weight to the argument that CGI was merely a pay-to-play scheme, some of the larger regular donors such as the Australian government and the Norwegian government have drastically cut funding to the Clinton Foundation. Why? Perhaps because Hillary won’t have a position of power from which to dole out favors. Just a thought

Yes that's what I mean by near miss. the news I'm referring to is very relevant as recent reports indicated increasing sharp losses in donations.

Wait is this only a site for anti-trump rhetoric now?

(talk about getting old).

My point being that current affairs in this country involve very important issues involving our actual President and not the woman who did not become President. By focusing your attention on inane and pointless issues involving something of minimal importance while ignoring that which IS important you further the visual that you already portray as extremely and purposefully playing the partisan game you accuse everyone else of.
This combined with your "Fake News" belief in anything negative Trump does paints you as hopelessly lost concerning current affairs.
Thanks from numan

As stated, applied also to you.

Actually you are FAR worse as you believe an article from a conspiracy blog above 10 news broadcasts from separate professional agencies...it seems a sickness.

To the best of my knowledge, I have NEVER believed in any conspiracy theory. Only proven conspiracies that come to light.

I would suggest that a presidential candidate openly offering to sell the country to the highest bidder is bigger news than anything put forward about Trump.

Maybe give your thoughts on the Clinton Foundation fallout? you don't have to be a one trick pony after all. there is truly more going on in the world than Trump and the medias desire to derail him.

Wait, a corrupt politician losing bribes once out of power is bigger news than the ****ining POTUS being a Russian spy?

You're delusional.
