t’s the ever-gurgling running water from the taps of the borderless Postcode Lotteries that’s enriching the Clinton Foundation, a fact that seems to be passing straight over the heads of investigative authorities trying to source the Foundation’s steady cash flow.
Tragically, just like its most infamous member, Hillary Clinton, the corrupt Clinton Foundation, sustained by millions of dollars from Postcode Lotteries, will never be brought down by FBI investigation.
Even if the Foundation were forced to send back billions to foreign countries who bought into Hillary Clinton political favors when she was Barack Obama’s Secretary of State, the Foundation would thrive and go on because investigating authorities do not know where to go to turn off the Foundation’s free-running, borderless taps.
Little wonder that Bill Clinton, on the Postcode Lottery board of directors to this very day, crowed back in 2009: “The (Postcode) lottery is the best thing I’ve seen”.
How do you turn the tap off on the “best thing ever seen”?...
“The National Postcode Lottery, the second largest lottery in The Netherlands, has donated over $25 million dollars to the Clinton Foundation.”
And that’s just the amount that shows on Foundation books.
In essence, the Clintons have won the biggest lottery of all time.
In coming up with a fail-proof scheme—one that uses million s of unsuspecting lottery ticket buyers in a market now going worldwide—the Clintons, you might say, won the lottery and are running Western society into the ground with it.
Their lottery booty will not just make them personally rich, it guarantees a Democrat presidency in 2016 and for long into the foreseeable future.
“Australia, Norway and Saudi-Arabia each gave the Foundation between $10 and 25 million dollars. They are followed by The Netherlands and Kuwait, with each $5 to 10 million in donations, and subsequently by Qatar, Brunei and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with each between $1 and 5 million dollars worth of gifts.
Cash gifts from foreign countries are mostly one-offs. Postcode Lotteries are ongoing.
“For more than two decades, the Dutch have been running the Postcode Lottery, which supports charities in the Netherlands and abroad. (The Dutch Government, the Clinton Foundation and the Postcode Lottery)“Since its launch in 1989, it has grown to become the third largest charitable organization worldwide.”“The Dutch aren’t stopping in the Netherlands; recently they have established lotteries in Sweden and Great Britain. With a new initiative to establish Postcode Lotteries in as many countries as possible, the aim is to help as many innovators and charitable organizations as they can make the world a little bit better through a lotto ticket.“The Postcode Lottery is the best thing I have ever seen to involve ordinary people in charitable work. A whole community can win and it must be a great feeling to be a part of it,” said President Bill Clinton, an international ambassador for the Postcode Lotteries.”“The way it works, 50 percent of each 2 euro ticket sold, goes to fund charities, which adds up to billions of dollars for 253 charities worldwide working on everything from Brad Pitt’s Make it Right Foundation, which builds green in New Orleans and elsewhere, to programs that fund health and research, support of children, the environment and cultural issues. The organizers say it is an alternative to a tax encouraging citizens to engage in civic behavior.“In 2011, lotteries in the United States brought in $56 billion - 25 percent, or about $14 billion, went back to the states for government services such as education and senior programs, 60 percent goes to prize winners and 15 percent to retailers. The Dutch Postcode Lottery sets itself apart by funding individual entrepreneurs.“We like encouraging people to take matters into their own hand and create a better world and we also like to encourage entrepreneurship,” Marieke Van Schaik managing director of the Dutch Postcode Lottery told ABC News. “I think it’s wonderful that we can help, and can inspire other people to do something like this.”
Has anyone noticed that voluntary charitable acts are out, and Postcode “is an alternative to a tax encouraging citizens to engage in civic behavior” according to its organizers?
How many are aware that in some countries, including Britain, Postcode is set up in such a way that your bank account is automatically deducted.
“But that’s not all. The Postcode Lottery is managed by Novamedia BV, a company founded by businessman Boudewijn Poelman. Novamedia has expanded its lottery franchise to other countries such as Sweden, Germany and the United Kingdom.
“And indeed, its franchises the People’s Postcode Trust and the Postcode African Trust have also given between a half and a whole million dollars to the Foundation. The Swedish Postcode Foundation gave between $1-5 million, as well as the Swedish Postcode Lottery, which donated between $10 and 25 million dollar.s Together, the Poelman lotteries donated between at least $36 and 52 million dollars.“Here we must ask the same questions. Why didn’t the Lotteries spend such amounts directly on their own affiliated charities? What’s so special about the Clinton Foundation? It is not the case that the Clinton Foundation knows how to spend its money better. This fact check shows that the Clinton Foundation spent nearly 81% of its donations to organization costs, travel costs, trainings and salaries. No more than 19% actually reached the designated charities.”
Hillary Clinton’s exchange of favors for foreign cash have made the running of America a free for all for foreign states—many of them intolerant of America.
But the biggest clue in blocking the cash flow to the Clinton Foundation would take authorities to the Netherlands where Postcode Lottery—the third largest charitable organization worldwide—keeps the Clinton Foundation in ready cash.
All Postcode lottery winners are identified by their ZIPcode. Postcode, which kicked off in the Netherlands in 1989, is going worldwide, meaning that every country running Postcode lotteries have a data base with the ZIPcodes of all who buy lottery tickets.
Was Barack Obama trying to tell us all something, or just feeling on safe turf when he Tweeted out of the blue on Jan. 9, 2014: “A child’s course in life should be determined not by the ZIP code she’s born in, but by the strength of her work ethic”?
But there’s a much more threatening dirty little secret torpedoing America to November 8 disaster that nobody’s even talking about:
Foreign countries who have propped up the Clinton Foundation for decades with their taxpayers’ dollars now want in on running America. They intend to collect on it through the election of Hillary Clinton as America’s 45th president.
They rest assured in knowing that the money tap keeping the Clinton presidential campaign up and running will never be turned off so long as millions of people worldwide are buying their government-sponsored lottery tickets.
There’s an irony in knowing that without their even being aware of it, the little people of the world, the busboys, the single mothers, carwash employees et al will have brought about the takeover of America through the compromise by foreign governments of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The dream of people who buy lottery tickets is as old as the lotteries themselves. There’ll always be room in the lottery business for some poor working stiff who thinks his winning ticket will pay off his debts and leave room for a brand new convertible.
This is the glittery paper Postcode Lottery comes wrapped in: “Postcode Lottery, an innovative lottery program that funds ideas that make the world a better place”; “Changing Cities: a Lottery that Helps Save the World”.
Most of us know that ‘money doesn’t grow on trees’. But we should know that it grows on Hillary Clinton and no one’s coming forward to arrest its invasive growth.
In line with President Vladimir Putin’s vision for the future, between 2009 and 2013, Russian investors acquired a Canadian mining company. That company, later known as Uranium One, traded in the material needed for nuclear weapons and power plants. It also controlled 20% of the total US uranium production.
It was Hillary Clinton, at the time serving under President Obama as Secretary of State, and now running to be the first woman President of the United States, who had personally approved of the uranium deal with the Russians.
During that same time frame, the CEO of Uranium One, through his family foundation, had donated $2.35 million dollars to the Clinton Foundation founded by her husband Bill Clinton. Before the take-over, a Russian investment bank with ties to the Kremlin invited Bill to give a short speech—he earned $500,000 dollar in one day.
Pay to Play
This is just one of the many examples of what Peter Schweizer, author of the book Clinton Cash (2015), calls the Clintons’ pay-to-play scheme, “Give money to Bill, get favors from Hill.” The book quickly became a New York Times bestseller. Pirated copies included, the documentary of the same name has already drawn over 3 million viewers (here and here).
In response to the book, three FBI departments have since attempted to bring the Clinton Foundation before the court. Meanwhile, a criminal investigation is ongoing.
Bil Clinton founded his Foundation in 2001. Because his wife HIllary would serve under Obama, the President ordered the Clinton Foundation make public its list of donors. This should help Hillary avoid a conflict of interest. However, in the meantime it has for example become clear that at least one aid of then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Cheryl Mills, at the same time ahd also done work for the Clinton Foundation.
The Clinton Foundation and the Dutch Government
Aside from big corporations, foundations and philantropists, the list of donors also names a number of national governments, among others The Netherlands. They have donated large amounts of taxpayer money.
Australia, Norway and Saudi-Arabia each gave the Foundation between $10 and 25 million dollar. They are followed by The Netherlands and Kuwait, with each $5 to 10 million in donations, and subsequently by Qatar, Brunei and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with each between $1 and 5 million dollars worth of gifts.
Why would foreign governments want to give their tax payers’ money to an American charity? Why didn’t they invest in their own development aid programs directly? Why did they pass charities in their own countries?
Perhaps they too received a favor from Hill in exchange for money to Bill, because what stands out is that these donor countries have something in common. They can all be found high on the list of oil exporting nations. Saudi-Arabia tops the list as #1, followed by Kuwait as #3, UAEas #7, Norway #10, Qatar #14, Australia #25, and Brunei in 35th place. The Netherlands may come in last at number 48, but on the other hand, the country serves as the tax home of the sixth largest energy corporation in the world, Royal Dutch Shell.
The National Postcode Lottery
The Netherlands plays a role in the Clinton Foundation for another reason. The National Postcode Lottery, the second largest lottery in The Netherlands, has donated over $25 million dollar to the Clinton Foundation.
But that’s not all. The Postcode Lottery is managed by Novamedia BV, a company founded by businessman Boudewijn Poelman. Novamedia has expanded its lottery franchise to other countries such as Sweden, Germany and the United Kingdom.
And indeed, its franchises the People’s Postcode Trust and the Postcode African Trust have also given between a half and a whole million dollar to the Foundation. The Swedish Postcode Foundation gave between $1-5 million, as well as the Swedish Postcode Lottery, which donated between $10 and 25 million dollar. Together, the Poelman lotteries donated between at least $36 and 52 million dollar.
Here we must ask the same questions. Why didn’t the Lotteries spend such amounts directly on their own affiliated charities? What’s so special about the Clinton Foundation? It is not the case that the Clinton Foundation knows how to spend its money better. This fact check shows that the Clinton Foundation spent nearly 81% of its donations to organization costs, travel costs, trainings and salaries. No more than 19% actually reached the designated charities.
Blind Idealism, or Borderless Corruption?
On the basis of his research, Peter Schweizer therefore concludes that the Clinton Foundation is a front for global corruption. In exchange for gifts to the Clinton Foundation, as well as speaking fees for Bill Clinton, corporations and governments have bought a stake in the global Clinton network.
Thanks to this loophole, Schweizer claims, the Clintons were able to bribe African dictators. In turn, they have provided friends of the Clintons with lucrative oil and mining contracts. For example, in exchange for a well-paid speech, Bill Clinton called the dictator of Rwanda Paul Kagame “one of the greatest leaders of our time”.
Everything is for sale. What once began out of idealism has become borderless corruption. The Clinton scheme can perhaps best be summarized in the job title of The Netherlands’ Lilianne Ploumen: Minister of Foreign Trade and Development Aid. To big players in global trade, both matters are one and the same thing.
