The #Unexpectedly Chronicles The Clinton Foundation Cash Cow suddenly losing a Big International Donor Update: or 2

edwards-money pj mediaFor years when­ever con­ser­v­a­tives referred to the Clin­ton Foun­da­tion as a money mill we were derided by both Clinton’s defend­ers and the press that assured us that regard­less of the num­ber of flights, five star hotels, expen­sive meals and booze that the Clin­ton Foun­da­tion cov­ered for Bill, Hillary & Com­pany, it was all about good works and that’s all there is too it.

That being the case I find this news from Aus­tralia rather odd:

AUS­TRALIA has finally ceased pour­ing mil­lions of dol­lars into accounts linked to Hillary Clinton’s charities.

What that can’t be right

The fed­eral gov­ern­ment con­firmed to news​.com​.au it has not renewed any of its part­ner­ships with the scandal-​plagued Clin­ton Foun­da­tion, effec­tively end­ing 10 years of taxpayer-​funded con­tri­bu­tions worth more than $88 million.

But this doesn’t make any sense. We were assured that the Clin­ton Foun­da­tion was doing good works all over the world, are we to believe that the good works that Aus­tralia believed was worth an 88 Mil­lion dol­lar invest­ment just ceased or that Aus­tralia has decided that their works are good enough any more?

Why any­one would think that the con­tri­bu­tions from Aus­tralia over the last 10 years were all about cur­ry­ing favor with a Sit­ting Sen­a­tor, Sit­ting Sec­re­tary of State, Demo­c­rat Nom­i­nee and expected pres­i­dent rather than help­ing others.

Any­one want to bet me a five spot that the Aus­tralians won’t be the last big donor to decide to with­out the greens that the Clin­ton cash Cow lived on for years?

Update: That didn’t take long:

As the Nor­we­gian news­pa­per Heg­nar points out, Nor­way is expected to slash their con­tri­bu­tions to the Clin­ton Foun­da­tion by 87% now that Hillary has lost the pres­i­dency. After con­tribut­ing roughly $5mm per year to the Clin­ton Foun­da­tion between 20072013, the Nor­we­gian gov­ern­ment decided to boost their dona­tions to ~$15mm and ~$21mm in 2014 and 2015, respec­tively. Iron­i­cally, that boost in con­tri­bu­tions cor­re­sponded with Hillary’s deci­sion to run for Pres­i­dent in 2016…but we’re sure it’s just a coin­ci­dence. That said, it is fairly inter­est­ing that, since Hillary’s loss, Nor­way has decided to scale back their con­tri­bu­tions by 87% in 2017…hmmm.

I guess that’s bet­ter than Aus­tralia which went to zero but I’m won­der­ing what Norway’s expla­na­tion is? Does the Clin­ton Foun­da­tion do 87% less good than it did before?

edwards-money pj mediaFor years whenever conservatives referred to the Clinton Foundation as a money mill we were derided by both Clinton’s defenders and the press that assured us that regardless of the number of flights, five star hotels, expensive meals and booze that the Clinton Foundation covered for Bill, Hillary & Company, it was all about good works and that’s all there is too it.

That being the case I find this news from Australia rather odd:

AUSTRALIA has finally ceased pouring millions of dollars into accounts linked to Hillary Clinton’s charities.

What that can’t be right

The federal government confirmed to news.com.au it has not renewed any of its partnerships with the scandal-plagued Clinton Foundation, effectively ending 10 years of taxpayer-funded contributions worth more than $88 million.

But this doesn’t make any sense. We were assured that the Clinton Foundation was doing good works all over the world, are we to believe that the good works that Australia believed was worth an 88 Million dollar investment just ceased or that Australia has decided that their works are good enough any more?

Why anyone would think that the contributions from Australia over the last 10 years were all about currying favor with a Sitting Senator, Sitting Secretary of State, Democrat Nominee and expected president rather than helping others.

Anyone want to bet me a five spot that the Australians won’t be the last big donor to decide to without the greens that the Clinton cash Cow lived on for years?

Update: That didn’t take long:

As the Norwegian newspaper Hegnar points out, Norway is expected to slash their contributions to the Clinton Foundation by 87% now that Hillary has lost the presidency. After contributing roughly $5mm per year to the Clinton Foundation between 2007 – 2013, the Norwegian government decided to boost their donations to ~$15mm and ~$21mm in 2014 and 2015, respectively. Ironically, that boost in contributions corresponded with Hillary’s decision to run for President in 2016…but we’re sure it’s just a coincidence. That said, it is fairly interesting that, since Hillary’s loss, Norway has decided to scale back their contributions by 87% in 2017…hmmm.

I guess that’s better than Australia which went to zero but I’m wondering what Norway’s explanation is? Does the Clinton Foundation do 87% less good than it did before?
