Description:

Philanthropic and charitable foundations operating at the global level typically operate in a different set of rules, where "aid" "relief" and "help" often taken on different meanings than the do-gooder idea planted in the public's mind through propaganda and celebrity endorsement. At the center of the current scandal is the Clinton Global Initiative, after a NYT report calling attention to the fact that the foundation is running a deficit of several million dollars while hauling in nearly half a billion dollars over a ten year period. Where does that money come from and where does it go? Private philantrophy and NGOs help steer the ship of globalism transforming third world, scratch, developing nations in need of some Western interventionalist-aid through UN divisions, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank and regional development banks. Each of these international bodies tie loans and aid to conditionalities -- policy changes to allow or even demand privatization of utilities, population control measures, trade barriers favorable to Western corporations, offshore (slave) labor pools and more. Causes used to raise big cash through sympathy in the public is rerouted to private firms friendly with the tax-free foundations andSmedley Darlington Butler, (1881 -- 1940)Major General in the U.S. Marine Corps, explained how foreign policy overlaps with private interest to create a crony-fascist (public/private partnerships) corporate dominance over foreign locales:"I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents."Overlaps between Clinton Foundation and partners (NYT)http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2013/08/14/us/politics/The-Overlapping-Clinton-World.html?ref=politicsUnease at Clinton Foundation Over Finances and Ambitionshttp://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/14/us/politics/unease-at-clinton-foundation-over-finances-and-ambitions.html?hp&_r=0NY Times : Clinton Foundation Rife with Cronyismhttp://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/08/14/NY-Times-Clinton-Foundation-Rife-With-CronyismCanada Free Press - What happened to our tsunami aid?
