A Hoover Institution fellow is writing a book about the foreign donations the Clinton Foundation has taken. Just a reminder that Hoover was the fellow who was president when the economy fell completely apart leading to 25% unemployment and something called “Hoovervilles” when homeless people squatted in empty lots around trash can fires for warmth. The Herbert Hoover who one month after the stock market crash said:
“Any lack of confidence in the economic future or the basic strength of business in the United States is foolish.”
Now that’s somebody to name a think tank after. Hoover and his Treasury Secretary millionaire industrialist Andrew Mellon both thought the best thing to fix the economy as the soup lines formed was nothing. Anybody who works for such a think tank you know is working on intellectual fumes for the red team. But I digress.
The story isn’t another right wing hit piece on the Clintons, those are a dime a dozen. The story is who is touting this one.
But “Clinton Cash” is potentially more unsettling, both because of its focused reporting and because major news organizations including The Times, The Washington Post and Fox News have exclusive agreements with the author to pursue the story lines found in the book.
So the great Satans of the liberal media, the NY Times and WaPo, are in bed with Roger Ailes and Fox News in order to get the dirt on Hillary Clinton. The same liberal media that ate up every poorly sourced piece of fever dream speculation against the Clintons in the 90s and then decided that George Bush was the guy America wanted a beer with while Al Gore was too dull and dishonest to be president.
As Eric Alterman famously asked “What Liberal Media?”
