Clinton for Mayor? It's all about Foundation $

A lot of peo­ple seem sur­prised at the sud­den: Hillary Clin­ton for Mayor of NYC push.

I’m not.

Clin­ton for mayor talk makes per­fect sense if you con­sider this:

Because of demise of the Clin­ton brand, the Clin­ton Foun­da­tion resorts to bot­tom feed­ing, at least by their for­mer fundrais­ing stan­dards. These peo­ple would have scoffed at such a small fundraiser only a few weeks ago. The Clin­ton Foundation’s donor list rep­re­sented the Who’s Who of cor­po­rate elites, politi­cos, and coun­tries. Not anymore.

If the Clin­ton Crime Fam­ily™ is going to have any chance of shak­ing down big cor­po­ra­tions they need a pow­er­ful posi­tion. NYC is perfect:

  1. It has an over­whelm­ing major­ity of Democ­rats vot­ers who gave her an incred­i­ble mar­gin of vic­tory in 2016, fur­ther­more it has a large minor­ity pop­u­la­tion that can coun­ter­act any Bernie vot­ers who want to make trouble.
  2. It has a city coun­cil so rad­i­cal it makes Mass­a­chu­setts look conservative
  3. It puts her in the media and cul­tural cen­ter of the nation giv­ing the media a rea­son to obses­sively cover her every move.
  4. As NYC is Trump’s home base a Clin­ton Admin­is­tra­tion is per­fectly posi­tioned to make trou­bles for Trump’s hold­ings if she so chooses, or take credit if his poli­cies improve things in the city and a national paper (the NYT) pre­pared to make either case for her as she chooses.

But most impor­tant of all not only does it, as the finan­cial cen­ter of the nation offer great oppor­tu­ni­ties to shake down major cor­po­ra­tions, as an inter­na­tional city it gives all the var­i­ous nations a rea­son to keep the money flow­ing their way.

But DaT­e­chGuy” you might ask, “Why wouldn’t she go for Gov­er­nor of NY or per­haps Cal­i­for­nia instead?” Wouldn’t that be more pow­er­ful and be a nat­ural jump­ing off point if she wishes to try again in 2020?”

That would be true but the Mayor’s posi­tion car­ries much less risk, No mat­ter how badly she fails as mayor there is a zero pos­si­bil­ity that the city coun­cil in NYC will flip to the GOP while there is the pos­si­bil­ity that even if she wished to chal­lenge the Cuomo dynasty a Clin­ton admin could be such a dis­as­ter that the GOP could make sig­nif­i­cant gains statewide.

Fur­ther­more as the a Mayor she would be in a posi­tion to appeal to a Demo­c­rat Gov­er­nor for state funds if a cri­sis ensues (and under Clin­ton such a cri­sis is bound to hap­pen) while as a Gov­er­nor she would have to turn to Trump, mean­while NYC’s posi­tion as a cul­tural, finan­cial and media hub makes it much less likely that a com­pany, no mat­ter how badly hit by Clinton’s poli­cies, would choose to relocate.

Since day one the Clin­tons have been all about the money, put a Clin­ton in as mayor of NYC and the Clin­ton Foun­da­tion can feast on donor funds till the day they die.

A lot of people seem surprised at the sudden:  Hillary Clinton for Mayor of NYC push.

I’m not.

Clinton for mayor talk makes perfect sense if you consider this:

Because of demise of the Clinton brand, the Clinton Foundation resorts to bottom feeding, at least by their former fundraising standards. These people would have scoffed at such a small fundraiser only a few weeks ago. The Clinton Foundation’s donor list represented the Who’s Who of corporate elites, politicos, and countries. Not anymore.

If the Clinton Crime Family™ is going to have any chance of shaking down big corporations  they need a powerful position.  NYC is perfect:

  1.  It has an overwhelming majority of Democrats voters who gave her an incredible margin of victory in 2016, furthermore it has a large minority population that can counteract any Bernie voters who want to make trouble.
  2. It has a city council so radical it makes Massachusetts look conservative
  3. It puts her in the media and cultural center of the nation giving the media a reason to obsessively cover her every move.
  4. As NYC is Trump’s home base a Clinton Administration is perfectly positioned to make troubles for Trump’s holdings if she so chooses, or take credit if his policies improve things in the city and a national paper (the NYT) prepared to make either case for her as she chooses.

But most important of all not only does it, as the financial center of the nation offer great opportunities to shake down major corporations, as an international city it gives all the various nations a reason to keep the money flowing  their way.

“But DaTechGuy” you might ask, “Why wouldn’t she go for Governor of NY or perhaps California instead?”  Wouldn’t that be more powerful and be a natural jumping off point if she wishes to try again in 2020?”

That would be true but the Mayor’s position carries much less risk, No matter how badly she fails as mayor there is a zero possibility that the city council in NYC will flip to the GOP while there is the possibility that even if she wished to challenge the Cuomo dynasty a Clinton admin could be such a disaster that the GOP could make significant gains statewide.

Furthermore as the a Mayor she would be in a position to appeal to a Democrat Governor for state funds if a crisis ensues (and under Clinton such a crisis is bound to happen) while as a Governor she would have to turn to Trump, meanwhile NYC’s position as a cultural, financial and media hub makes it much less likely that a company, no matter how badly hit by Clinton’s policies, would choose to relocate.

Since day one the Clintons have been all about the money, put a Clinton in as mayor of NYC and the Clinton Foundation can feast on donor funds till the day they die.
