The Campaign Contributions That Keep On Giving

Bill Clinton is apparently still working for the Chinese. At an event this past week, Clinton helped launch and promote a new internet search engine called Accoona, designed to rival Google and Yahoo! As one might have expected, Accoona Corp. "donated an undisclosed amount to the William J. Clinton Foundation." Among the principal backers of Accoona Corp. - the Communist government of China. Great.'s perfectly normal for a former U.S. president to promote a company owned by a hostile foreign government. Why, you might ask, would he do this? Because he can. I mean, when you've already given them missile technology, what's a website, really? And, he is building that bridge to the 21st century and bridges cost money, you know. This certainly won't be the last of such blatant self-aggrandizement. The "Foundation" will be his ticket to the Land O' Kickbacks. They say the Clinton library cost $165 million. There's no way it "cost" that much. The Reagan library was $45-60 million. Bush 41's cost $83 million - the library museum was $43M and the Bush School of Government and Public Service was $40M. I predict yet another Clintonian scandal somewhere down the road where the Foundation or one of these deals gets really called into question.
