THESE ARE THE PEOPLE HILLARY PLAYS WITH

Hillary is owned by a small group of powerful people and there's no doubt they, and those like them, will be well taken care of if she wins this election.



These are the people that have bankrolled the anti Trump blitz and dictate what the Main Stream Media shows Americans on their TV's and cell phones.



These are the plutocrats that have laid waste to what was one a democracy.



How mega-donors helped raise $1 billion for Hillary Clinton - The Washington Post:


It was a few weeks before Hillary Clinton would announce her 2016 presidential bid, and she was already worried about money.

“Can we discuss the fundraising plans for first quarter?” her top aide Huma Abedin wrote to other senior staffers in March 2015, noting that Clinton was concerned.

“Is the issue that she’s doing too much? Too little?” asked campaign manager Robby Mook.

Abedin’s succinct reply: “JEB BUSH.”

At the time, donors to the former Florida governor were socking millions into a super PAC, pushing the limits of campaign-finance rules. The stockpiling of seven-figure checks before Bush even declared his candidacy spurred a flurry of anxious conversations between Clinton and her staff, according to hacked emails posted by WikiLeaks.

But the former secretary of state had her own financial weapon: a network of political backers that she and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, hadmethodically cultivated over 40 years.

Determined not to fall behind in the money race, Hillary Clinton ramped up her appeals to rich donors and shrugged off restrictions that President Obama had imposed on his fundraising team.

Even as her advisers fretted about the perception that she was too cozy with wealthy interests, they agreed to let lobbyists bundle checks for her campaign, including those representing some foreign governments, the emails show. Top aides wooed major donors for super PACs, taking advantage of the leeway that campaigns have to legally collaborate with the groups on fundraising.

The effort paid off. Together with the party and pro-Clinton super PACs, the Democratic nominee had amassed $1.14 billion to support her campaign by the end of September — on par with what Obama and his allies brought in for his 2012 reelection bid. GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, who did not begin fundraising in earnest until the end of May, had collected $712 million, including $56 million of his own money.
