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.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
