Leid Stories Stories and news that affect us all

September 14, 2016  

It’s the third day of “polling” listeners’ attitudes about the 2016 presidential race, the issues driving it, and the combined effect on individual political decisions on Election Day and beyond.

The topic has generated vigorous discussion and more calls than could be accommodated in a single program. Hence, Leid Stories proudly presents Day 3 of peer-to-peer political science.

An avalanche of calls from listeners wanting to participate in yesterday’s discussion leads to Part 2 today. Leid Stories returns to our “poll” tracking attitudes about the 2016 presidential election, the issues driving it, and the combined effect on individual political decisions on Election Day and beyond.

The post-Labor Day campaign push customarily is an all-out effort to lock down votes in the final stretch of a presidential election. But election 2016 has been, and is, no ordinary presidential election. The duopoly’s leading candidates, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, are intensely disliked and distrusted, but have been the mainstay of media coverage as essentially the dominant choices in the race. (They do, after all, account for the lion’s share of pay-to-play advertising dollars flowing into the media’s coffers this political season.)

Leid Stories has been tracking voters’ (and nonvoters’) attitudes about the presidential campaign, the issues driving it, and what their likely choices will be on Election Day. We get current with our “polling” today.

Leid Stories Charles wraps up this week’s special reports on The Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation and related entities with an exclusive Q&A session with Charles Ortel.

Ortel (charlesortel.com), a former Wall Street banker and investor, gained international attention when he independently investigated General Electric, insurance giant AIG and General Motors before the 2008 financial crash and found them to be engaging in “massive” fraud.

Since February last year, Ortel has been doing his own investigation of the Clinton Foundation and its affiliated offshoots and has declared the whole enterprise to be “the largest unprosecuted charity fraud in world history.”

The Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation, and multiple offshoots it has spawned globally in the years since the foundation’s launching in 1997, have been operating illegally and deceptively as charitable organizations, says former Wall Street financial expert, analyst and investor Charles Ortel, who has been presenting the findings of his independent study of the foundation’s operations in an ongoing series on Leid Stories.

On today’s program Ortel delves into the paradox of how the Clintons, their foundation and related “charitable” organizations have been able to operate outside the law yet seem to be shielded by it.

With polls showing Donald Trump gaining ground on Hillary Clinton in the final stretch of the presidential race, Clinton is using all tactical weapons at her disposal to make him an also-ran. Her weapon of choice yesterday was ethics. Clinton boldly assailed Trump’s lack thereof in his debt-laden business operations, his still-unreleased tax returns, his lawsuit-plagued Trump University that went defunct six years ago, and the Trump Foundation’s violation of federal laws prohibiting charities from making political contributions.

The media failed to see the glaring ironies in Clinton’s attack. But Leid Stories points them out, especially in light of its ongoing series on the Clintons and their eponymous foundation.

Charles Ortel, the recognized expert on the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation and its multiple pseudophilanthropic offshoots, returns as our special guide through the labyrinth he calls “a massive fraud.”

September 6, 2016  

Sixty-two days before the general election and Hillary Clinton seems convinced that her only problem is beating Donald Trump to the presidency and claiming her “rightful” place in history. Yet she’s at the very center of a political and legal maelstrom that not only has signaled very rough road ahead for her, but in the home stretch has begun to unleash its ambition-blocking power.

The Clinton Foundation (officially the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation) and its collection of pseudophilanthropic offshoots have put the Clintons—and Hillary’s presidential campaign—under several microscopes. The alarm over what is being discovered and revealed   is getting louder and louder, and wider and wider.

Financial expert and investor Charles Ortel (charlesortel.com), who independently has been investigating the operations of the Clinton Foundation and its related entities, has been detailing on Leid Stories his contention that the foundation for years has been engaging in “massive charities fraud.”

In today’s edition of Leid Stories, he continues with his explosive findings, which have become essential to several ongoing investigations.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s hasty, fly-by meeting yesterday with President Enrique Peña Nieto of Mexico served as a backdrop for a speech he made later in the day at a rally in Phoenix to present his policies on immigration.

A raucous crowd enthusiastically cheered as Trump railed against President Barack Obama’s “failed” immigration policies—which, he said, Hillary Clinton not only supports, but will add to with new policies that also are destined to fail.

Trump laid out a 10-point plan he said will go into effect on Day 1 of his presidency. Topping the list are building “a great wall” on the U.S.-Mexico border, mass deportations of the   undocumented, and significantly beefing up law-enforcement agencies to identify, hunt down and deport those who have committed crimes while in the United States or in their countries of origin.

Media gurus have been analyzing the combined effect of Trump’s meeting with President Peña Nieto. Leid Stories listeners offer their unique perspectives on this significant development in the increasingly tight Trump-Clinton contest in which both candidates’ campaigns have been hobbled by self-inflicted wounds

School districts all across the country are humming with activity, preparing for a new school year. Not so in Detroit, where the state’s largest school district, still under state-imposed emergency management, remains mired in a series of overlapping crises—fiscal, political, administrative and pedagogical—that appear certain to doom any hopes for a productive new year.

Elena Herrada, an elected member of the “old” school board whose authority over local education was overridden by the state, explains the dire situation with education in her home town.

Detroit is in its third year of servicing a $20-billion debt under the strict terms imposed by a federal court. Those terms have caused an evisceration of budgets for essential services and practically a bargain-basement giveaway of its land and municipal assets to the politically well-connected.

Bernie Sanders stunned the political world—and especially 13 million voters who had supported his presidential bid in the primaries—when on July 12, two weeks prior to the Democratic National Convention, he ended his “independent” campaign and in the name of “party unity” instead declared unqualified support of Hillary Clinton for president.

A lot has happened since then—federal probes, email issues, Clinton Foundation pay-to-play lawlessness, resurfacing of Clinton (Bill’s and Hill’s) history of ethical challenges—that should cause Sanders to rethink his political decision. But no indication from Bernie that he’s troubled about Hillary.
