NOT-SO-SHOCKING REVELATION: The Clinton campaign laundered millions during the election

How’s this for a headline that you, along with the rest of America, may have missed?

"The Hillary Clinton campaign effectively laundered $84 million during the 2016 election." At least that’s the allegation made in a lawsuit filed in a DC federal court last week by a group called the “Committee to Defend the President.”

If you haven’t heard of this, it’s probably because last week’s priority lawsuit was the one filed by Democrats against the Trump campaign, WikiLeaks and Russia. But, to be fair, it’s hard to squeeze in potentially bombshell news about Hillary Clinton’s campaign corruption with so much Comey, Russia, Michael Cohen and Stormy Daniels updates to cover.

Basically, here’s how campaign finance is supposed to work...

A person is only allowed to give $2,700 to any candidate, $10,000 to any state party committee and (during the 2016 election) $33,400 to a national party. Oftentimes, a donor will give one lump sum --- let’s say $100,000.

If that person wrote a check for $100,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund (which was Clinton’s joint fundraising committee), under campaign finance law, the Hillary Victory Fund would have to distribute that money in the allowed amounts to the Hillary Clinton campaign ($2,700) and the DNC ($33,400). Then, the remaining $63,900 would be disbursed to the state party committees. But no more than $10,000 to any one state committee, as permitted by law.

The Hillary Victory Fund apparently did not follow the rules.

Well, shocking newsflash, the Hillary Victory Fund apparently did not follow the rules. I know, pick up your jaw off the floor, especially if you’re driving, because that’s dangerous. The Hillary Victory Fund frequently received a big donation, like our $100,000 example, and would transfer (at least on paper) the correct amounts to state committees.

But then, the exact same amount was magically transferred back to the DNC either on the same day or the next day. The DNC then contributed most of those funds to Hillary for America (which was Hillary’s campaign committee).

It’s the darnedest thing --- the state committees often don’t have records of having either received or sent funds in those amounts. Crazy, right? Who would do that?

Quoting from the lawsuit: “public statements from both the then-Chairwoman of the DNC, Donna Brazile, and Hillary for America’s Chief Financial Officer, Gary Gensler, confirm Hillary for America controlled the DNC’s finances, strategy, and expenditures. That is, the funds raised through the Hillary Victory Fund ended up under the direction and control of Hillary for America.”

That’s the illegal part. Money going from state party committees back to the national party committee is commonplace --- both Republicans and Democrats do that. But money at the DNC then flowing directly to Hillary for America is against the law.

For a year prior to Election Day, the DNC also made at least 59 coordinated expenditures with the Clinton campaign, which campaign finance law treats as contributions to Hillary for America. Those expenditures only totaled $22.8 million.

Yet, the media is losing its mind over Michael Cohen’s $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels and whether it qualifies as a campaign contribution.

Donna Brazile laid out much of this in a Politico magazine article last November, but the media just yawned and went back to checking Trump’s Twitter feed.

According to the lawsuit, these allegations are built entirely on the Federal Election Commission reports filed by the Hillary Victory Fund, the DNC and the state Democratic parties. Politico magazine also reported on this scheme --- way back in June of 2016.

If there’s one thing the Clintons are really good at, it’s manipulating the flow of millions of dollars into their own pockets.

But mainstream media didn’t bat an eyelid, because they were in full-on Trump panic mode. Even Bernie Sanders accused the Clinton campaign of “money laundering” prior to the Democratic National convention, so the current lawsuit is not just another partisan attack.

So, what does all this mean? It means that once again, mainstream media is barking up the wrong tree. If there’s one thing the Clintons are really good at, it’s manipulating the flow of millions of dollars into their own pockets, their organizations, or both.

They’re masters at it. Actually, the masterful part is their amazing ability to avoid ever being held accountable.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
