Crooks of a Feather Flock Together :: by Bill Wilson

There is an old saying, “Birds of a feather flock together.” It means that people who are alike tend to be drawn to one another. In this day and age, one might be able to modify the saying a bit to: “Crooks of a feather flock together.”

At least that’s the way it seems with politicians, and one in particular who wants to be president of the United States. Hillary Clinton has been involved with scandal after scandal since she arrived on the political scene and was removed from the Watergate investigation due to unethical practices.

Her shady past includes too many dark shadows to list in this Daily Jot, but the latest is fresh off the presses from Panama. It shows both her hypocrisy and her lack of ethics.

Mossack Fonseca is a law firm that registers offshore companies to evade taxes and launder money. Recently, a leak of its client base through the “Panama Papers” indicated a “Who’s Who” of close friends of Clinton and her philandering husband.

McClatchy News reports that among them are:

1. Gabrielle Flalkoff, finance director for Hillary Clinton’s first U.S. Senate campaign.

2. The Chagoury family, which pledged $1 billion in projects to the Clinton Global Initiative; and Chinese billionaire Ng Lap Seng, who was at the center of a Democratic fund-raising scandal when Bill Clinton was president.

3. Late billionaire investor Marc Rich an international fugitive when Bill Clinton pardoned him in the final hours of his presidency.

It will take years to unravel the Friends of Clintons shenanigans to evade taxes, and perhaps even launder money to unscrupulous causes (think Saudi Arabia, Huma Abidin, Muslim Brotherhood, etc.) using offshore accounts and the scandal-ridden Clinton Foundation.

But the hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton is further exposed by her rhetoric against offshore accounts to avoid paying taxes. McClatchy reports that at the recent AFL-CIO convention she condemned what she called “Outrageous tax havens and loopholes that super-rich people across the world are exploiting. Now, some of this behavior is clearly against the law, and everyone who violates the law anywhere should be held accountable.”

Accountable, really?

Hillary Clinton is proposing a ONE TRILLION dollar tax increase if she is elected. She goes around the country condemning the rich and their tax avoidance. She collects hundreds of thousands of dollars for her speeches (which is essentially legal money laundering for her campaign).

Yet her closest allies, who give her and her husband hundreds of millions of dollars, are suspected money launderers and tax evaders.

There is a warning in Proverbs 22:16, saying, “He that oppresses the poor to increase his riches, and he that gives to the rich, shall surely come to want.”

Clinton and her ilk oppress the poor while saying they support the poor. Those that give her a vote will see fruits of coming to want. She is a destructive person by virtue of her history and body of work.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
