Who’s on the side of women?
Who’s on the side of children?
Who’s on the side of the average American?
The Clinton Foundation turns public service into personal profit. And it does it at the expense of women, children, and average Americans. In this case the Boys and Girls Club of Long Beach California, which helps disadvantaged children, was victim of the Clinton Greed.
The Boys and Girls Club paid Hillary $200,000 for a speech. They paid Bill Clinton $150,000 for a speech. And the same Boys and Girls Club had paid Condoleezza Rice $60,000 for a speech. But price isn’t the only difference.

Supreme Court Justice Scalia: The Constitution, Not Bill of Rights, Makes Us Free.
To hear Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia tell it, America’s freedoms don’t come from freedom of speech or freedom of the press.
