Hillary’s $200,000 Per Hour Side Job

(ANTIMEDIA) Hillary Clinton rakes in at least $200,000 per hour to speak to Goldman Sachs executives and investors — but what, exactly, she’s speaking about that warrants such a hefty paycheck remains a total mystery.

Hillary isn’t about to spill the beans on what makes her such a valuable speaking commodity, as Lee Fang fromThe Intercept discovered after a town hall meeting in Manchester, New Hampshire on Friday. Fang approached the former Secretary of State with the reasonable query, “Will you release a transcript of your paid speeches to Goldman Sachs?”

Her now infamous facetious laughter in response said it all.

As the Huffington Post reported, Hillary has earned upwards of $2.5 million from speaking engagements  in the last two years,alone, and the general public will never be privy to the content of those speeches due to conditions she dictates in an absurdly restrictive contract.

“According to her standard speaking contract,” reported the Las Vegas Review-Journal, “Clinton will remain at the event no longer than 90 minutes; will pose for no more than 50 photos with no more than 100 people; and won’t allow any press coverage or video- or audio-taping of her speech.”In fact, “the only record allowed will be made by a stenographer whose transcription will be given only to Clinton.”

File that right under ‘transparency in government.’

Hillary told New Hampshire Public Radio, “I spoke to a wide array of groups who wanted to hear what I thought about the world coming off of my time as secretary of state.” But her lock-and-key contracts, coupled with that ‘wide array’ largely consisting of Wall Street Bankers, lends suspicion to her motives being less than purely benign. One facet of her campaign boasts a ‘tough on Wall Street’ approach, which — were her speeches simply conversational — could only be aided by making those transcripts public.

Hillary has asserted that, despite such amassed wealth, she is still in touch with ordinary people. Yet as one of the wealthiest of the wealthy, above those six-figure speaking fees, she demands to be housed in hotels’ presidential suites — and most often insists those funding her appearance also “provide a private jet for transportation — only a $39 million, 16-passenger Gulfstream G450 or larger will do,” as the Review-Journaldescribed. This sharply contrasts the choices of Bernie Sanders, who, as noted by the Huffington Post, “until recently … flew home most weekends from Washington coach-class on Southwest.”

Hillary’s ‘Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous’ image will not go away anytime soon, particularly when what she discusses with Big Bankers remains cloistered in her possession.

  2. The picture at the top is sexist and betrays a visceral disdain for Hillary Clinton. Inappropriate and does nothing to add credibility to this article. It should be removed.

  3. Actually the picture at the top is a pretty good representation as to what's she's become to the American people… a whore with no morals whatsoever. The trail of body bags of her and Bill's former friends should be pretty good evidence of that… not to mention the Benghazi debacle and other major screwups on her part. She thinks she's untouchable, but she's about to get a rude awakening as election time draws near. Trust me on this. ;-)

  4. 'Anti-Media' page uses clickbait to distract proles with old stories in order to make ad revenue through their monetized corporate social media operations…
