    Not much money there. $155,340? But instructive, nonetheless. Perhaps it suggests that the “oligarchy” is so many-tentacled that each tentacle needs give only a pittance (such as $155,340) in order to buy devoted subservience. Perhaps it merely means that members of The Establishment need merely pat other members of The Establishment on the back with gentle taps, and big money is for other occasions (but which?).

    Anyone got any ideas? If Hillary is supported by one or more PACs, where’d they get their cash?

      Good question. If I were a weapons maker I’d want to make my main political investments secretly.

    pabelmont “Not much money there. $155,340?” Not for a Lawyer like Hillary or any Lawyer [snark] According to public disclosures, by giving just 12 speeches to Wall Street banks, private equity firms, and other financial corporations, Clinton made $2,935,000 from 2013 to 2015:link to link to theintercept.com
    Also, both Clintons have taken millions of dollars in speaking fees from the health care industry. According to public disclosures, Hillary Clinton alone, from 2013 to 2015, made $2,847,000 from 13 paid speeches to the industry.link to link to theintercept.com Carlos got her eyes just right.

      The end of the story is: should Hillary make it to the WH, one day comes a call demanding a return favour for all that money. All she can say is: Yes Sir, right away!
      This is the person who just a few days ago in Nevada promised to fight corporations buying elections and politicians!!

    I cannot believe that anything that woman says could possibly be worth anything near what she is paid. Could it be that these people are paying her this money for access?

    Hmmmm…

    Hillary refuses to release the transcripts of her speeches [see my comment above] to the Banks and Corporations. link to theintercept.com WHY?

    Hillary will probably increase weapons funding to Israel. Hillary’s so vocal when it comes to gun restrictions in the U.S., but when it comes to supplying weapons to her buddy Netanyahu to kill Palestinian children with; she’s all laughs:

      True that. She will not hesitate to hand over arms and ammunition to massacre thousands of civilians, including children, while pretending she wants gun restrictions in the US.

      The plight of the Palestinian people have always been ignored by American leaders who seem to be interested more in enabling their occupier who keeps stealing their lands.

        She just wants to make sure the white kind of people have access to guns in ‘merikah. And she wants to make sure her BFF gets the same.

    Note that the other remaining Democratic contender also gets more than Rubio. Conclusion: while the ranking in the official bribe list isn’t relevant, the official list is only a negligible fraction of the real flow of money.

      It is like an iceberg, 10% above water, 90% under.
      Huge amounts of cash is given under the table, all I want is a 5% commission on it.
