The Clinton Foundation: The Final Annual Meeting, 2016

Wednesday, September 21st, 2016

Well right now in mid town Manhattan the Clinton Global Initiative is meeting. Allegedly the last meeting in a while, at least if Hillary Clinton becomes President. At a time when Trump’s foundation is being discussed as a Slush Fund, this meeting on Global Prosperity, is worth looking at. The Clinton Foundation has a 4 star charity rating by Charity Watch. Here is what the meeting is all about this year:

“Global prosperity requires both equity and opportunity for all. In 2016, through the theme ‘Partnering for Global Prosperity,” CGI challenges its members to consider how they are building and maintaining global prosperity through creative cooperation. Throughout the year and at the Annual Meeting, CGI members will explore how to partner in new and unique ways to secure flourishing livelihoods for all, enable communities to thrive, and promote and increase environmental sustainability everywhere.”

Here is the conference livestream:

 

A comparison of the two foundation (Trump Clinton)  we at TFN think is definitely in order. Here, without the networking sessions, lunches and awards, that seem all passionate discussions and deeply informative, are substantive issue based discussions that just went down at CGI this week:

 

Beyond Equality: Harnessing the Power of Girls & Women for Sustainable Development

Partnering for Global Prosperity

Succeeding in the World’s Toughest Places

What We Know Now: Applying Lessons Learned to Advance Haiti’s Future

Girl, Uninterrupted: Increasing Opportunity During Adolescence

Turning Landfills into Goldmines: Can We Make the Circular Economy a Reality?

Elephants Action Network: Impact through Collaborative Conservation

Imagine All the People: A speech by Bill Clinton

We’ll be providing some video from the meeting as we get it.

The President Show: PAC Pushes Al Franken For Hillary’s Vp

Tuesday, March 29th, 2016

Franken for Hillary VP; ‘Perfect Tonic to Trump’s Coarse Broadsides’

Franken In the all important VP Wars…this may very well be a very very strong choice.

Sen. Al Franken should be tapped to be Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential running mate, says Bill Scher, senior writer for the progressive political advocacy group Campaign for America’s Future.

“For a 2016 presidential race that’s already stranger than fiction, his party truly needs someone like Franken if it’s going to win the presidency,” Scher says of the Minnesota Democrat and former “Saturday Night Live” comic in a column written for Politico.

“[Donald] Trump’s presence demands new rhetorical weaponry. As Trump himself might say, Franken’s ‘classy’ and ‘elegant’ wit is just what the ticket needs to avoid the kind of brawl that drags everyone down to Trump’s level.

As well, writes Scher, it would allow Clinton to remain “above the fray,” with the quick-witted Franken there to “provide the buffer.”

“Franken has worked hard to prove he is a detail-oriented, issues-driven senator, not a political novelty act,” Scher says.

“Furthermore, his style of humor is deadpan and wry, the perfect tonic to Trump’s coarse broadsides. He’ll have no need or inclination to get sucked into the gutter, the way Rubio did, just to get a piece of the daily news cycle.”
