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.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
