A woman alleged to have been the fixer for Jeffrey Epstein, a pedophile and friend of Bill Clinton, has herself long had ties to the former president of the United States. Indeed, it's clear that even as her associate, Epstein, admitted to procuring sex with someone under the age of 18 and registered as a sex offender in 2008, Ghislaine Maxwell's relationship with the Clintons flourished.
Maxwell is the president and founder of a non-profit that helps protect the ocean, the TerraMar Project. And as recently as 2013, she attended the Clinton Global Initiative, where her charity made a public commitment. The press release from the Clinton Global Initiative read, "Sustainable Oceans Alliance
Commitment by: The TerraMar Project
. Partners: Michael Dorsey; Global Partnerships Forum
In 2013, the TerraMar Project committed to launch the Sustainable Oceans Alliance (SOA) to mobilize the international community and the public at large on the importance of the Oceans and the Seas and to ensure that the 193 UN Member States recognize and incorporate oceans in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to be adopted in 2015."
The TerrMar Project commitment is still listed on the Clinton Foundation website. And that remains, even after Maxwell's involvment in the Epstein pedophile scandal continues to grow and continue to raise questions about former President Bill Clinton.
"Ghislaine Maxwell was another person in Epstein’s inner circle and a co-conspirator in Epstein’s sexual abuse. She was someone who consequently also appreciated the immunity granted by the NPA for the crimes she committed in Florida," reads a recently released court document related to the scandal.
The document alleges that Maxwell's role was "to procure under-aged girls for sexual activities" and was "a primary co-conspirator" in Epstein's sexual crime. “In 1999, Jane Doe #3 was approached by Ghislaine Maxwell, one of the main women whom Epstein used to procure under-aged girls for sexual activities and a primary co-conspirator in his sexual abuse and sex trafficking scheme. In fact, it became known to the government that Maxwell herself regularly participated in Epstein’s sexual exploitation of minors, including Jane Doe #3. Maxwell persuaded Jane Doe #3 (who was then fifteen years old) to come to Epstein’s mansion in a fashion very similar to the manner in which Epstein and his other co-conspirators coerced dozens of other children (including Jane Doe #1 and Jane Doe #2).”
She, the document alleges, helped Epstein convert a then underage woman into a "sex slave." “Epstein then became enamored with Jane Doe #3, and with the assistance of Maxwell converted her into what is commonly referred to as a ‘sex slave.’”
But despite Maxwell's sordid relationship with Epstein (and despite Epstein's apparent falling out with the Clintons), she has remained "close friends" with the former president. As Vanity Fair reported in 2011, “[Ghislaine Maxwell’s] Rolodex would blow away almost anyone else’s I can think of—probably even Rupert Murdoch’s. She is very well read and can talk about most things for hours. She is passionate about Bill Clinton, with whom she is close friends.”
Maxwell has raised money for Clinton and his library. As the Mail reported in 2003, “FUN-LOVING Ms Fixit, Ghislaine Maxwell, who has already taken the Manhattan social scene by storm and is a leading society figure in London, is now ready to rub shoulders with more powerful figures. Ghislaine, the 42-year old daughter of the late fat fraudster Robert Maxwell, caused a stir when she took the Duke of York to a ‘hookers and pimps’ party on his visit to America two years ago, but this week she is helping to raise funds for ex-President Bill Clinton. ‘Clinton is raising money for his library with a party in New York and Ghislaine is on the host committee,’ I'm told. Her likely date for the evening will be her on-off love, vastly eligible American financier Jeffrey Epstein, in whose magnificent New York townhouse she has been living for the past couple of years.”

Protesters gathered outside the Clinton Foundation in New York City to complain about "missing money" from the Haiti recovery effort from the 2010 earthquake:
"New Yorkers with roots in Haiti say the picture [of the Haiti recovery] isn't so rosy," said the NY1 anchor.
The protesters claimed that the $10 billion meant to help rebuild Haiti did little to help the country after the devastating quake. And that much of the money went to non-Haitian companies.

This morning, Hillary Clinton sent an email to supporters with the subject line, "Announcement." But the contents of the message did not explain the former secretary of state's future political ambitions. Instead, the message asked for money from supporters of what is now the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

Vice President Joe Biden seemed to take a shot at the Clintons in an interview yesterday when he brought up "all that stuff that was going on" in the 1990s. Biden's reference served as a reminder that Democrats avoided the Democratic president when President Clinton was getting impeached.

Along with thousands of others, I got an email from Bill Clinton last week. “Hey there,” the former president began. He was raising money for the Democratic candidates. “There’s an election around the corner, so I’ve been traveling around the country to help Democrats who are standing up for the values you and I believe in, Fred,” he continued, adding a nice personal touch.
'It's almost impossible for the average American to understand how totally political Washington is today.'7:43 AM, Sep 24, 2014 • By DANIEL HALPER
Bill Clinton was asked about Barack Obama's political situation by former aide George Stephanopoulos on ABC Clinton of course has some words for Republicans and "how totally political Washington is today" (as opposed to when Clinton was in the White House?). But surprisingly Clinton also claims a certain element of the media has always opposed Obama.

The fall of the Arkansas Democrats.Sep 22, 2014, Vol. 20, No. 02 • By FRED BARNES
In 1949, Harvard political scientist V. O. Key Jr. declared in his book Southern Politics in State and Nation that in Arkansas “we have the one-party system in its most undefiled and undiluted form.” Other Southern states, nearly as Democratic in those days as Arkansas, gradually became Republican. Arkansas didn’t. One-party Democratic rule in the state lasted another 60 years.

Bill Clinton enjoys a Gurkha cigar, "the Rolls Royce of the cigar industry." He "loves the Gurkhas," Gurkha chief executive officer Kaizad Hansotia, maker of the HMR cigar, which stands for His Majesty's Reserve. It is, according to Hansotia, "the world's most expensive cigar."
One box is $25,000 -- and the price will rise next year to $30,000. "The cigars are close to $1,000 each," says the cigar boss to Bloomberg.
