What&rsquo;s the big deal is anyway as the Clinton Foundation is an international charitable organization. Isn&rsquo;t this just another right wing conspiracy? &mdash; Arkansas Cool Daddy<br />\n Dear Cool:<br />\n You do understand that we&rsquo;re talking about the Clinton&rsquo;s here don&rsquo;t you? According to an Associated Press analysis, from 2001 &mdash; 2015 the Clinton Foundation accepted between $55 and $130 million from 16 foreign countries including several Middle Eastern countries that treat women brutally as second class citizens.&nbsp; Also a lot of this money was raised while Hillary was Secretary of State.<br />\n Many of Hillary&rsquo;s defenders claim there is no influence peddling here as this is simply foreign countries helping a worldwide charitable organization. Kind of reminds me of the organized crime gangsters who weren&rsquo;t trying to actually bribe police officers. No, the gangsters would simply offer to make a large contribution to the &ldquo;police officers benevolent fund&rdquo; with no expectations in return.<br />\n But let&rsquo;s dig a little deeper into the details of this &ldquo;agreement&rdquo; because after all we are dealing with the Slick Willie clan and the Clinton&rsquo;s have made a living in the gray area of the law.<br />\n According to an AP story, &ldquo;While direct contributions from other governments would be halted, those nations could continue participating in the Clinton Global Initiative, a subsidiary program that encourages donors to match contributions from others to tackle international problems without direct donations to the charity.&rdquo;<br />\n To quote Bill Clinton, I guess it all depends on &ldquo;what the meaning of is is.&rdquo; Foreign countries can no longer contribute directly to The Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation but they can match donated funds to the Clinton Global Initiative. Seems to me there is still a pretty good connection between Hillary and the foundation and a pretty good opportunity for foreign countries to peddle some influence.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: &nbsp;<br />\n Hillary Clinton is officially running for president and kicked off her campaign with a van trip to Iowa. That witch may think she&rsquo;s fooling us with this supposed grassroots approach to reach the common person but I&rsquo;ve followed her a long time and she&rsquo;s nothing but an opportunistic phony. She even called the van &ldquo;Scooby&rdquo; to sound cutesier. A leopard can&rsquo;t change its spots and neither can this barracuda of a human. &mdash; I&rsquo;m Not Fooled<br />\n Dear Not Fooled:<br />\n The Hillary campaign has made no secret that they are trying to warm up Mrs. Clinton&rsquo;s image to relate better with the common man. It&rsquo;s also no secret that the campaign has made some missteps in the process. From an ugly campaign logo to staged photo ops in Iowa, not to mention website snafus, the Hillary campaign isn&rsquo;t exactly flying out of the gate. On top of that she is refusing any questions from the media.<br />\n Team Hillary even made mistakes concerning &ldquo;Scooby&rdquo; the van. Everyone knows that the van in Scooby Doo was a colorful, upbeat and fun van as opposed to the menacing black van Hillary traveled in. We know also that the van in Scooby Doo was called the &ldquo;Mystery Machine&rdquo; which would have been a fitting choice, perfectly describing Hillary&rsquo;s political career.&nbsp; Unfortunately for Team Hillary the nickname &ldquo;Mystery Machine&rdquo; was already taken by Hillary&rsquo;s personal email server.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n Sleaze ball Harry Reid called the entire Republican presidential field a bunch of losers.&nbsp; Isn&rsquo;t that the pot calling the kettle black? &mdash; Just Saying<br />\n Dear Just: &nbsp;<br />\n Harry Reid has always been more politician than statesman but apparently he doesn&rsquo;t even care that some of the &ldquo;losers&rdquo; are his colleagues in the Senate. Not only that, by using the term&nbsp; &ldquo;loser&rdquo; he&rsquo;s also insulting the voters who put these candidates in office.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: &nbsp;<br />\n The Secret Service is going to have spikes installed on top of the fence that surrounds the White House because of all the Obama haters. It&rsquo;s a shame it&rsquo;s come to this. &mdash; Discouraged in Delaware</p>\n<p> Dear Discouraged:&nbsp; Are the spikes to keep the bad people out or are they trying to keep President Obama in?</p>\n<p> E-mail your questions to <a href=\"mailto:marklevy92@aol.com\">marklevy92@aol.com</a>.
