Hillary's America is a Banana Republic without the bananas

As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton saw the decline of America's relevance in the world as the Obama administration embraced adversaries and turned a cold shoulder to allies. She dismissed America's victory in the Cold War as "Cold War thinking."

Clinton meanwhile sold favors and her nation out, accepting bribes from dictatorships.

From International Business Times:
Under Clinton’s leadership, the State Department approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations whose governments have given money to the Clinton Foundation, according to an IBTimes analysis of State Department and foundation data. That figure — derived from the three full fiscal years of Clinton’s term as Secretary of State (from October 2010 to September 2012) — represented nearly double the value of American arms sales made to the those countries and approved by the State Department during the same period of President George W. Bush’s second term.
The Clinton-led State Department also authorized $151 billion of separate Pentagon-brokered deals for 16 of the countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation, resulting in a 143 percent increase in completed sales to those nations over the same time frame during the Bush administration. These extra sales were part of a broad increase in American military exports that accompanied Obama’s arrival in the White House.
American defense contractors also donated to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state and in some cases made personal payments to Bill Clinton for speaking engagements. Such firms and their subsidiaries were listed as contractors in $163 billion worth of Pentagon-negotiated deals that were authorized by the Clinton State Department between 2009 and 2012.
And there is this:
In all, governments and corporations involved in the arms deals approved by Clinton’s State Department have delivered between $54 million and $141 million to the Clinton Foundation as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments to the Clinton family, according to foundation and State Department records. The Clinton Foundation publishes only a rough range of individual contributors’ donations, making a more precise accounting impossible.
Sigh.

  1. I wonder whether Hillary used her State Department position and connections to pimp her husband Bill. Bill raked in millions of dollars not only by giving speeches, but also by selling his services as a global consultant and guru on international affairs. What expertise or information did he have to sell? Was he being officially updated on global affairs by the Obama administration, and then selling that information in his consulting business? Was he selling confidential and secret inside information provided by his wife Hillary, the Sec'y of State? The Clinton crime syndicate needs to be thoroughly investigated. I know the DOJ will never do it. But somebody should.

    1. Well, well, well. Somebody has answered my call. And it took just one day.

      "Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation have been hit with a racketeering lawsuit in Florida court.

      "The lawsuit, filed by Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, includes a legal request to have the Florida judge seize the private server on which Hillary Clinton and her aides hosted their emails while she served as secretary of state."
