Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped to Make Bill and Hillary Rich

b00q33prds-01-lBook #14: Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped to Make Bill and Hillary Rich, Peter Schweizer

Bill Clinton has become one of the most post-office presidential celebrities.  And it is no secret that he has spoken countless places and is compensated multiple times the average American salary per speech.  However with Hillary in public office throughout the tenure of Bill’s post-presidency life, there is great potential for interested parties to buy Hillary’s influence.  Though corruption is difficult to prove, there are financial behaviors with the Clintons that appear suspicious.  This books describes the large contributions to the Clinton Foundation and curious decisions made in the senate or the state department.  At the minimum this appears as a careless disregard for potential conflict of interest.  But at its worst this is a quid-pro-quo bordering on political graft that would suggest a behavior of corruption that seems to be a pattern with the Clintons.  This book raises serious questions about a person who is currently seeking the one of the most politically influential office in the world.

The Queen: The Epic Ambition of Hillary Clinton and the Coming of the Second “Clinton Era,”

b00t3e77pu-01-lBook #4: The Queen: The Epic Ambition of Hillary Clinton and the Coming of the Second “Clinton Era,” Hugh Hewitt

500 years ago, Niccolo Machiavelli wrote The Prince, a political discussion from an Italian diplomat to his political rival.  500 years later, this book is written in the same style.  Hugh Hewitt (a center right political commentator and talk show host) writes this book as a letter to Hillary Clinton instructing her how she ought to run her campaign in order to win.  But in doing so, he masterfully builds a case illustrating the failings of Hillary Clinton as a political figure.  For a book that came out in June, 2015, it has been remarkably prophetic of the 2016 race for the presidency.
