Here’s something else for the “total coincidence” file: Shortly before Hillary Clinton because secretary of state, the Saudis anted up $10 million to the Clinton Foundation while Boeing chipped in $900,000. When Hillary became SoS, a deal was approved for Boeing to deliver $29 billion worth of fighter jets to Saudi Arabia. The jets were so high-tech that they were able to shoot down appearances of impropriety before they threatened Hillary’s presidential hopes.

You can read the full article here, but this is the gist of how U.S. national security (and security elsewhere) flowed through the Clinton Foundation:

Under Clinton’s leadership, the State Department approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations whose governments have given money to the Clinton Foundation, according to an IBTimes analysis of State Department and foundation data. That figure — derived from the three full fiscal years of Clinton’s term as Secretary of State (from October 2010 to September 2012) — represented nearly double the value of American arms sales made to the those countries and approved by the State Department during the same period of President George W. Bush’s second term.

The Clinton-led State Department also authorized $151 billion of separate Pentagon-brokered deals for 16 of the countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation, resulting in a 143 percent increase in completed sales to those nations over the same time frame during the Bush administration. These extra sales were part of a broad increase in American military exports that accompanied Obama’s arrival in the White House.

These people owe somebody an apology…

Let’s call her Darth Trader.

I’m sure the Clintons are reminding their customers (er, I mean “foreign governments they’ve worked with in an official, fully transparent and documented capacity”) that for another $165 billion they could buy 3 billion of these babies:

So comfortable they’re guaranteed to cause you to sleep in until after 10:30 a.m. Nothing says “I’m for the candidate who will fight for the proletariat” like a $55 throw pillow.

Update:

And don’t forget the pantsuit t-shirt for only $30 (foreign donors add an additional $100,000 to cover shipping, handling and server scrub & disposal):

Laugh if you will but it looks fabulous on George Stephanopoulos.
