    An Oil Company, Human Rights Abuses in Colombia and the Clinton Foundation

    The details of these financial dealings remain murky, but this much is clear: After millions of dollars were pledged by the oil company to the Clinton Foundation — supplemented by millions more from Giustra himself — Secretary Clinton abruptly changed her position on the controversial U.S.-Colombia trade pact. Having opposed the deal as a bad one for labor rights back when she was a presidential candidate in 2008, she now promoted it, calling it “strongly in the interests of both Colombia and the United States.” The change of heart by Clinton and other Democratic leaders enabled congressional passage of a Colombia trade deal that experts say delivered big benefits to foreign investors like Giustra.

    The details of her family’s entanglements in Colombia echo talk that the Clintons have blurred the lines between their private business and philanthropic interests and those of the nation. And Hillary Clinton’s connections to Pacific Rubiales and Giustra intensify recent questions about whether big donations influenced her decisions as secretary of state.

    You mean Hillary may be corrupt? Who would have thought that?

    Colombia was on the Dems' blacklist because President Uribe was close to Geo W Bush. Colombia's record on human rights under President Uribe was the best in Latin America.

    However, Colombia had a long-standing communist insurgency in the jungles and the communists were given sanctuary by both Ecuador and Venezuela. They are still active--the FARC.

    FARC had infiltrated some labor unions and was causing typical communist unrest. When the Colombians moved to check this communist activity, the US unions and the Democrats called it unfair.

    However, it seems that the Clintons found a way to cash in on the suffering and take hard-earned money from Colombian natural resources as a payment to get the Clintons to silence the US unions and the Dems and the trade agreement went forward.

    So you can safely blame the Clintons for some of the squalor in Colombia, but I doubt if either one of them cares about penniless workers in Latin America.

    It is sort of an echo of the situation with Mexico--favoritism goes to those who will vote Democrat. If Obama can reach a deal with Cuba, he will shut off Cuban sanctuary in the USA because Cubans vote mostly GOP. This fact has caused an increase in desperate people trying desperate ways to escape Cuba before a total iron curtain descends.

    We all know the Clintons are corrupt. But...

    In the end, will it matter? How complicit will the corrupt old media be this time? We know democrats and the Same radical left groups that support Obama will support her.

    They embrace the corruption of their own.

    Colombia is not the only Latin American country that the Clintons have robbed. Hillary got her brother a special license from Haiti for a gold mine in that country. As poor as the Haitians are, one would think that the Rodhams could refrain from extracting their pound of flesh.

    As many suspected, it turns out that the Clinton Foundation is indeed a tepid cesspool of crony corporate and government donations used to buy influence at the highest levels of Washington D.C. This shouldn’t surprise anyone paying attention, but it will hopefully wake up some Democrats still buying into the deep rooted myth of Hillary Clinton.

    David Sirota and his colleagues at International Business Times have been relentless in uncovering several extremely important examples of her pathological cronyism. I highlighted his very important work just last week in the post, This is How Hillary Does Business – An Oil Company, Human Rights Abuses in Colombia and the Clinton Foundation. Here’s an excerpt:

    Democrats embrace the corruption of their own. They will never wake up.

    Hillary robbed the poor in Colombia and Haiti and kept the money for herself and her brother.
