Title: Chelsea Clinton's dubious 'earnings' She made big bucks in chemicals and TV, courtesy of nepotism, not skill

With all the talk about Hunter Biden these days, one might get the impression that he is the only child of a politician to benefit from his parents’ position and the last name they inherited.

Before Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden, got his strange but lucrative deal to sit on the board of energy company Burisma Holdings in Ukraine to the tune of $50,000 a month, there was Chelsea Clinton, the only child of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. She was similarly rewarded with jobs and board positions that had absolutely no relationship with that young woman’s interests, life, education or any perceived expertise.

All of this has racked up to what the New York Post reported back in 2015 was an estimated net worth of $15 million for the then-34-year-old. More recently, Barron’s, the finance newspaper, revealed that Chelsea Clinton has now reaped $9 million from a corporate board position. In 2011, while her mother was still secretary of state, she was appointed to IAC/Interactive, an Internet investment company. She receives an annual $50,000 retainer and $250,000 worth of restricted IAC stock units, according to Barron’s.

Ironically, and something the Clintons would be loathed to admit, they like most other American families benefitted from President Donald Trump’s leadership and correlating economic renaissance.

The Hill reported, “IAC stock has risen 89%, 50% and 36% in 2017, 2018 and 2019, respectively, a far steeper rise in the broader stock market Consequently, Chelsea Clinton reported in December of last year her holdings ballooned to $8.95 million.

In 2017, Chelsea Clinton was also named to travel site Expedia’s Board of Directors. Because she’s a … business genius? A travel genius? An investment prodigy? The Hill


Poster Comment:

The Clintons are racketeers and murderers. The pile of dead bodies they leave behind them in their unhindered quest for illegal riches should be enough to lock the three of them away for 50 years.

Incidentally, Chelsea is absolutely ghastly looking and watching her speak is like a Disney cartoon come to life. Her comments are always vacuously stupid. (1 image)

Families look after their children. I see nothing wrong with that, as long as it is not illegal. Companies giving Chelsea Clinton board roles to have access to her famous and powerful parents is not illegal.

So what's the issue, then, jealousy?

Are you out of your mind asking me a question like that?

I recall thinking you were an asshole after reading some of your blurbs, but that comment puts you in the asshole category. That, of course, puts you in bed with the Democrat-Communist Party which you might enjoy.

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.

In general, in civ world, it is what it is. The rich and powerful can shower their money on their kids.

There is a problem with nepotism when government favors are being doled out. For example, a government employee agrees to do something unethical in return for a family member being given a government job over more highly qualified applicants.

Or two government employees act unethically for mutual benefit. Due to anti-nepotism regulations, a Navy officer could not hire his own wife to work for him as a civilian employee. But two Navy officers could team up and each hire the other guy's wife for a civilian position. In overseas locations, where civilian employment may be limited to on-base employment, this is a common sight.

Anti-nepotism regarding military retirees required they be seperated from active duty for at least six months before obtaining civilian employment with the military. That ended a certain form of self-nepotism where the gentleman, before retiring, planned the conversion of his military position to a civilian position, and tailored the job requirements to mirror what was in his military records. That way, he could be the most highly qualified candidate.

In a case such as Ukranians contributing millions of dollars to the Hunter Biden dope and hooker fund, they tend to be buying something in return. It can be viewed as access, or less altruistically as results. They are unlikely to keep pouring money into the hooker fund unless they are getting something for their money. The result would tend to be a corruption of some process or other.

Vic is a hardcore Catholic. They are always more sympathetic to monarchy, the very lifeblood of nepotism vs. meritocracy. Part and parcel of Catholic dogma over the centuries.

The only surprise would be if he wasn't. And, yes, if he could advance his daughter's prospects by underhanded behavior or influence peddling, he would do it in a heartbeat and have no qualms about it. You might as well act shocked that your dog gobbled up a piece of steak that fell on the floor during a meal. They might feign some guilt but they don't feel any in that circumstance.

No reason to drag Catholicism into the mix. I just think it's natural for family to love family, and the grouse - for example - that "Trump got all of his money from his daddy!", as if that delegitimizes him, delegitimizes the commentator who raises the point, as far as I am concerned. So what? That's what family is SUPPOSED to do: take care of their own, pass the knowledge, experience and wealth down through the ages. Support each generation so they get further.

The people who kick their kids out at 18 and tell them they are on their own are the real cocksuckers, as far as I am concerned. Anything they build will die with them, and their children will start adulthood at a crippling disadvantage.

Would I resort to DISHONEST methods to advance my daughter in her sport? Say, poisoning the opponents? Of course not. And that's not "Catholic" either. I want her to win on her own merits. But I will certainly, and do certainly, use my money to make sure she gets the best training, has the best equipment, and gets to travel to all of the important tournaments. Others of lesser means cannot necessarily do that. I don't look down on them, but I'm not going to hold back on what I can do for mine just because somebody else cannot do the same.

And I think that any normal right-thinking person does the same. Which is WHY I think that broad social welfare needs to be done through government policies. It is not natural to give away enough of what we have to actually make a difference and pull everybody up out of poverty. We want to help, and will, but not to the extent that it cuts into what we want to do for ourselves and our own children. It works against our proper instincts. Having the state do it moves the burden off of individuals, who simply won't do enough, and put it in the hands of a structure that can extract what is necessary from an unwilling population to make sure that the bottom are not left in abject wretchedness.

I don't support socialism, because that takes TOO MUCH, seeks to pull the top down and the bottom up, so they are equal in resources. That is intolerable (not the dream of equality, but the forcible creation of it). No. It is well that those at the bottom be lifted out of MISERY and placed in a position where they have adequate (not luxurious) housing, adequate heating, adequate health care, healthful food, and where their children have good educations, so they can rise out of the poverty by their own efforts, being properly equipped. That's expensive, but proper. BEYOND that, where the Communists and Socialists want to go, is NOT proper. Beyond that, I want the remaining of my resources for myself, MY family, MY causes (or lack thereof).

My Catholicism means that I cannot be so selfish that I ignore the plight of the bottom, and want ADEQUATE coverage of them, and GOOD education for their children. But it stops there. After that, God gave ME a family to look after, and that's MY job. Accumulating resources to have independence at the end of career, and so that my daughter can enjoy greater independence and opportunity early: this is normal and right - what ELSE are we supposed to be doing with our talents. Breaking the opponents' knees, a la Tonya Harding? No. That's wrong.

Nepotism - favoring one's own - is giving a leg up, it's not breaking somebody else's knees. That's why I don't mind it. Of course, if a child or a colleague is a wastrel, one does not press that person upward to fail. One recalibrates. Most people aren't wastels, and most jobs are such that it hardly matters who is in it. Why, then, not my own?

I suppose there are people who really believe it's a virtue to treat family the same as everybody else, and who toss their kids out at age 18 and tell them they are on their own. And people like that praise each other, I guess. If it's "Catholic" to not be like that, then it's one more example where Catholicism is a good thing.

And no, I have no problem with the royal families of the world. To stay royal, they have to please their people, and they do tend to hold their countries together.

I think that we are all cousins, literally blood relatives, through Adam and Eve, and Noah and Na'amah. As such we have a certain responsibility to every human being on earth, that they not live in misery, squalor and die young for preventable reasons.

My comments above, about adequate (not luxurious) housing, health care, nutritious food and a decent education for children (so they can rise and be productive) is a human minimum that humanity owes to all of its members, irrespective of their ability, or the ability of their parents, to pay. Where they can't pay, at the moment, it needs to be extended as welfare, with the education such that they can find work in whatever field and eventually pay it forward. If you want to call that Socialism, or Communism, or whatever, you can. I call it "Christianity", because it's what Christ demanded of us: feed the hungry, house the homeless, heal the sick - that's full on Jesus, and everybody who is a Christian knows that already.

There is certainly more than enough money in the world to do THAT, and still have a vibrant capitalist economy - indeed a MORE vibrant one, because of all of the new construction, education, and jobs.

The poorest parts of the world lack sufficient wealth to get this done, so the wealthier parts of the world need to fund it, yes.

As before, I do not speak of people living in luxury. One must be rich to do that. I speak only of the basic needs of all mankind. Jesus commanded us to look to those. I agree with him, and I find it puzzling when self- described "Christians" don't.

Christ commanded the church, the local church, to feed the hungry, house the homeless, heal the sick. Not a global welfare system of any kind.

A global system, such as the one the Pope is calling for, is an attempt to reunite the world against God, after He scattered the people and confused their language at the Tower of Babel.

1Now the whole world had one language and a common speech...3They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; 5But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.8”So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. Gen. 11

Jesus said: "The poor you will always have with you..." Part of what God is telling us here is that, because of the rebellion of man against God, there will always be poverty. There will always be multitudes of humanity who cannot be 'given' anything, because they will use what you give them to further distance themselves from God. Try giving a poverty stricken drunk some money, clothing, a car, a house...he'll just trade it for a bottle. But the local church can and does create shelters where such a man can come when he's ready.

Here's a Christian work in Newark, NJ

This mission would be a disaster if operated by a global (or even a local) government.

There are nowhere near enough shelters to house everyone, and there is not enough private charity to feed everyone who needs it, and the Churches don't heal the sick at all - that's a massively expensive undertaking.

So no, Church is not good enough. It's not enough, and it never has been.

My wife was a medical missionary (Zambia) before we married. There are thousands of Christian medical staff all over the world, overseen by the local churches through sending ministries. Surgery, dentistry, general medicine, the whole nine.

Even so, yes, it's not enough. But what has the WHO really done. Or any other alphabet org. How could any existing global organization lift every one up to, say, the American standard of living?

Take a look at Rhodesia, where the government took fully developed farms! away from one group of people and gave them to another...mass starvation. Now imagine that globally.

But guess who's going to give it a shot...the ole anti-christ hisself is going to do it, with the world believing that he is god. So when you say global welfare you are singing his tune. You may not have to wait too long to see him promise the world that he'll lift everyone up to heaven-on-earth status.

Here's how global welfare works out in reality...consider the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti.

From Wiki

The Clinton Bush Haiti fund raised $54.4 million from more than 2,000,000 individuals, businesses, and organizations. It dispersed funds to more than 50 organizations through grants, loans, and equity investments. As of December 2012, the Fund estimated that its programs sustained or created 7,350 jobs, trained 20,050 individuals, and had an additional positive impact on the conditions of more than 311,000 Haitians.

Oddly enough, after 10 years!, the people are still living in tents. Missionaries are reporting that the situation is dire. The mainstream news confirms...

Wonder where the $54 million went? Chlesea again?

These two molech worshipers represent the very best of a global welfare system. Nepotism? Hell yeah, funnel some money to the Bush kids, too.

Well, TC, only the Holy Spirit can reach Vic, or any of us, for that matter. My ability to persuade has faded with time, and certainly in written form, as anyone can see by my attempts at posting... I am not a writer but a speaker and neither if you consult my harshest critic (my wife).

The church is indeed fallen away (primarily through the spiritual condition of Laodicea). We Christians are aiding the rise of the AC by not loving the true. We have convinced ourselves that we are rich, and have need of nothing. It's quite evident.

The false believers will certainly be lost but the true Christians WILL wake up (probably too late, but they will wake up).

Maybe. The impression I get is that Christians will wake up one day, see an Antichrist dictator on TV, and mention it at church and discover that 90% of their "brethren" are ready to turn them in to the new world government as subversives.

The true Christians won't be suddenly surprised by the Antichrist. They will be the only ones who see him coming a mile away. The False Prophet is the tipoff that the Antichrist is near. It parallels how John the Baptist foreshadowed the appearance of Christ.

Scripture indicates that the Remnant will be an extremely small portion of those who claim to be Christian. Like 1% or less. People never really believe that that "strait is the gate and narrow...the way" stuff applies to them.

The False Prophet is the tipoff that the Antichrist is near.

The big tipoff will be the events of Ezekiel 38.

A confederation of nations north of Israel (entitled Gog and Magog) will be drawn down to make war with Israel.

God will supernaturally destroy the armies, but the heretofore unrecognized Beast (as he is actually called in the Bible) will broker a peace agreement between Israel and all her enemies.

This will give the AC the street creds to begin his reign (of ever increasing terror).

I hope and pray my family and friends are somewhere else by then.

You really see this all the literal script of a movie to come. You're absolutely certain of that things will be just exactly that way, because that is what you really see in those pages.

It is very difficult to wrap one's head around that, that you folks are really not posturing, you're really not speaking in metaphors or coded language to each other - that you literally think this is the script of the future.

Of course it's very hard to communicate across this gap. What makes it harder is that you're similarly absolutely certain that even those of us who try to are "of the world", and thralls of the anti-Christ, and you speak to us with such condescension and hostility...hostility that you folks call "love" (completely flipping the meaning of that word from anything recognizable).

Of course this "love" provokes an equally, or more, sarcastic reaction, and the enmity builds between "the world" and you folks - and you wouldn't have it any other way.

I've always tried hard to keep a bridge across that gulf, but I do have to ask myself why I do it. I do not believe pretty much anything you believe. I read the same book (well, yours is an abridged version, but the abridgements barely matter), and I come away with a completely different point of view (which you folks will ascribe to being "lost" and to the Devil).

Politically, the hardening of the positions has gotten more acute over the years. I remember how vilified I was by you "Christians" over my strong support for Trump back in the primaries. I remember being told how immoral he was, and how, therefore, immoral and un-Christian I was for supporting him. I listen very carefully to you folks when you talk, and I remember what you've said over the years. And when I look at it as a tableau, what I see is a remarkably inconsistent and utterly self-serving pattern of flip- flops and changes of heart, compared to which I look at myself and see somebody who has been as constant as the sun about the things that are right and true.

There is not much in common between Catholics and you guys, not really. And what little there is arises practically by accident. I guess what we do have in common is that we're both certain that we're the genuine People of God, that we have it right, and that God is with us. Nothing you've said to me on this and other threads has ever done anything more than deepen that certitude. The level of vituperation that comes out of you "Christians", the legalism that amounts to nullification of the social responsibility of Christians to do anything more than they personally feel like doing - none of it sounds to me remotely like Christ.

So I think I'll just leave it at that. Your beliefs are a well-developed script, that's how you see it, nothing on the earth or in the heavens is going to change your mind, and you don't want us "people of the world" mingled with you, because we might lead you astray.

For my part, I simply don't like being talked to the way you folks always talk to me, with this supercilious air as though you know something I don't know, have read something I haven't read. I've read the same book, and honestly, you sound like cartoon villains.

I'm taking my leave of Liberty's Flame again for awhile. Even the other Catholic here, Anthem (I think he's Catholic), was raging at me in full asshole mode the other day. What's the point of listening to this?

The world goes on.

Bye for now.

There is not much in common between Catholics and you guys, not really. And what little there is arises practically by accident. I guess what we do have in common is that we're both certain that we're the genuine People of God, that we have it right, and that God is with us. Nothing you've said to me on this and other threads has ever done anything more than deepen that certitude.

And you don't recognize that you are exactly the same? LOL.

he level of vituperation that comes out of you "Christians", the legalism that amounts to nullification of the social responsibility of Christians to do anything more than they personally feel like doing - none of it sounds to me remotely like Christ.

And, as usual, your notions of Christianity amount to a big welfare state.

Jesus and the disciples somehow never mentioned that Big Gooberment and a welfare state was the road to salvation.

You're just rehashing the usual arguments of Rome for a social welfare state. Paying for welfare by thee but not for me.

I'm taking my leave of Liberty's Flame again for awhile.

So, you're going to run away and pout for a while. Nothing new. It's been done to death really.

Even the other Catholic here, Anthem (I think he's Catholic), was raging at me in full asshole mode the other day. What's the point of listening to this?

A better question is what is the point of constantly trying to sell discredited and failed Catholic social gospel ideas to Prots. But you never consider that, despite many years of bitter frustration in your ongoing attempts to do exactly that.

Bye for now.

Until next time. You almost had me convinced until you decided to run away again.

Believe it or not, I did 8 years of Catholic grade school back during Vatican II and was even an altar boy doing the Latin Mass...

Fallen away now for a variety of reasons, but it still rubs me the wrong way when someone launches into their "The Pope is the AntiChrist" bullshit...

So just to let you know, you & Anthem aren't the only Catholics around here... (even if I only qualify as a former Catholic, those nuns made sure I was never gonna convert to something else. LOL)

"The Pope is the AntiChrist" bullshit...

Rome sits on 7 mountains as I understand it. The Roman church is blasphemous in their worship of sinner Mary the non virgin. The pope is a false teacher and is probably the false prophet.

1And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: 2With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. 3So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

The Mystery Explained

7And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

8The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. 9And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 10And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. 11And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. 12And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. 13These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

The Victory of the Lamb

14These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

15And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 16And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. 17For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. 18And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Catholics don't worship Mary... They only worship God... However, as the Mother of Christ, Mary does merit special status of honor & respect within Catholic doctrine...

So if you really want to risk eternal hellfire & damnation by being so disrespectful of Christ's Mother, that's your problem, not mine... I already knew years ago that it was pointless to try to convert you.... Especially when I have my own reasons for no longer believing in these ancient myths & fairy tales.

How is telling the truth being disrespectful. It is a fact that she is a sinner, we all are. It is a fact that she had other kids. Making her a non virgin. I'm not saying that she wasn't a good person. I'm just saying she isn't someone you are supposed to pray to. She was a person.

She's an intermediary... They know she's already in heaven, so they're just asking her to put in a good word with God for them.... They figure since she's Christ's Mom, she must have some kind of influence in these matters... But they still aren't actually worshipping her.

Wrong again... It doesn't matter how she conceived any other kids she may have had...
Catholics are only referring to the birth of Christ...
That was a miraculous act of God... No horny human poked her in the pussy to do that.

Are you trying to tell us that Joseph was actually Christ's biological daddy?
I sure hope not... I've heard plenty of strange conspiracy theories before, but that one's out there in la-la-land....

She is dead. She can't hear shit. The resurrection takes place in the future when Christ returns according to the Bible.

There is not one single bible verse that says to pray to a dead sinner.

Not one verse about an intermediary to pray to.

Anyone who thinks dead Mary hears their prayers is a stupid person. They are also a person who doesn't believe the Bible because as I pointed out she is dead and there has been no resurrection as yet. They add to scripture and pervert the word of God. Idiots.

She's dead Jim.

No you are wrong again. They are talking in present tense. She is the former virgin Mary mother of the Christ. But she isn't a virgin anymore. She can't hear you because she is dead. And she is a sinner she said so in scripture.

You don't believe the Bible is what is sounds like to me. Which is your choice to not believe the truth. Evil people and dummies do it all the time.

Mary had an important role. She just isn't someone you are supposed to pray to. Because she is dead and not risen.

You don't believe the Bible is what is sounds like to me.

Ancient myths & fairy tales, just like I told you earlier...

It doesn't matter to me whether it's your version, the Catholic version, the Mormon version, the Hebrew version, the Muslim version, the Zoroastrian version, L. Ron Hubbard's Sci-Fi version, or the Buddhists, Shintos, Norse/Vikings or whatever other mythology you mental midgets want to go to war over because you want to claim that your God is better than your neighbor's God...

Fuck all that stupid bullshit...

But since I was raised Catholic, I thought I'd explain to you what Catholics actually believe instead of whatever it was you learned in that anti-Catholic Echo Chamber you live in... But if you're spiritually fulfilled by all that mumbo-jumbo, then your not the only pinhead that I'll never convince before I croak... So it's just not worth my time to even try... You're a big boy.... Make up your own goddam mind instead of swallowing what someone else spoon-feeds you hook, line & sinker...

The resurrection has not happened yet. Or has it?

So what do you think the Easter Bunny is all about? Just another excuse to sell chocolate?
