Hillary Clinton. July 7, 2015

UPDATED: New information has been added at the end of this article.

A recently published list reveals who paid the Clintons how much over the last three years to give a speech, and it’s pretty embarrassing for the Jewish people. Not only because Jews ignore the past nastiness (remember the Suha smooch?) and open ear to ugliness against the Jewish state, but simply because they way overpaid.

The former Senator and Secretary of State, now presidential candidate, collected a total of over $21 million. The former President collected over $26 million during the same period.

The vast majority of the payments (the chart politely calls each payment an “honorarium”) were made by for-profit businesses or trade associations. For example, Morgan Stanley, the Global Business Travel Association, Bank of America and General Electric all forked over $225,000 to hear Clinton speak between 2013 and 2014. By 2015, when it was assumed that the former Secretary of State was not only going to be running for president, but might very well be the next president, her base fee began to inch upwards, with EBay shelling out $315K.

There are only a handful of actual charitable organizations on the list. And here’s the first piece of bad news for us: almost every single charity on the list – five in all for both Bill and Hillary – was a Jewish charity.

That means that money donated by people to promote a Jewish cause – Jewish education, religious observance, or Holocaust education – was placed by the leaders of these charities directly into the pockets of the Clintons.

There are no churches on the list, and no mosques, and not even any identifiable Christian or Muslim charities. The only religion whose officially identified religious institutions thought it was a good idea to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for a single speech by a Clinton was Judaism.

The second sad piece of news is the amounts paid. Hillary was featured as a speaker by three Jewish organizations – a total of $850,000 for Hillary, scooped up from the Chicago Jewish Federation ($400,000); a shul in Minneapolis ($225,000); and the American Jewish University in LA ($225,000), which used to be the University of Judaism and Brandeis-Bardin Institute. Bill spoke to the Tribe twice and was paid $400,000. He was paid by the Friends of Simon Weisenthal Center for Holocaust Studies ($275,000) and Temple Sinai of Roslyn ($125,000).

But here’s the most depressing thing of all: we overpaid. Hillary’s standard fee is an impressive $225,000. That was the charge for the vast majority of her speeches. A few were more, some were less. But the maximum charge, extracted from only one customer, was a whopping $400,000, taken from the Jewish Federation in Chicago. The next highest amount was $335,000, paid by a Biotech trade association and by Qualcomm.

The staggering amount paid to Clinton by the Chicago Federation was first discovered last summer, when their tax returns were revealed. Just days later, the Federation explained that, essentially, “it takes money to make money.” It also made clear that the Federation had worked closely with, and hosted, many prominent Republicans as well as Mrs. Clinton.

Of course it is essential that the Chicago Federation work with leaders from both political parties and fundraising necessarily includes spending. But neither of those truths answer why a charity, any charity, but especially a Jewish charity, would pay more for Clinton for a single speech than corporate giants such as Deutsche Bank or Xerox or the National Association of Chain Drug Stores or the National Automobile Dealers Association.

At least those people were making an investment, and they’re in the business of making money. The charitable souls at the Chicago Federation ponied up $65,000 more than anyone else in the country.

And you thought Jews never paid retail.

UPDATE: Aaron Cohen, vice president of marketing and communications for the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago, contacted the JewishPress.com in response to the publication of this article. Cohen provided documentation that Clinton spoke to the Chicago Federation at both a luncheon and a dinner on Oct. 28, 2013, “thus the larger fee.” The information relied upon for this article was taken from the Clintons’ tax returns.

  1. Dumb and dumber I cannot believe these Jews would be so dumb she is one of the most out spoken candidates against the state of Israel Along with Bill and she is definitely pro Arab. Her statements of pro Arab and receiving funding from Muslim and Arab organizations can be proven by going online and checking for yourself exactly what her feelings are towards the state of Israel that is last year and the year before that she was not a friend. Now that she is running for office all of a sudden she is pro

  2. What a waste, I would not give this idiot one penny. In fact if they finally do go for charges, I would help pay the prosecution so they can put this vile person in jail where she belongs.
    As a Jew it is incomprehensible that anyone in their right mind that is Jewish would support the Democrats with their anti Israel stand, but then we had idiots in WW2 supporting the Nazi's.

  3. Not this Jew. What a bunch of idiots! Hillary Clinton belongs in jail now: for Benghazi, Libya scandal and the illegal 13 Clinton Foundations that got money from Qatar,Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates and other nations supporting terrorism that jail and kill journalists and medical/food aid volunteers!! Hillary hates Jews, Democracy and Israel! FBI charge, indict and jail Hillary Clinton now!

  4. American Jews on the whole make me sick.
    It is not by accident that they are regarded as the morons of the Diaspora. Their knowledge of Middle East issues is scant, they are leftist first and foremost before any other criteria, they have on the whole lost their heritage and now in the majority will again vote Democrat in spite of all that has happened over the past eight years. They voted in the majority for Obama not once but twice and now this lot in the majority will cast their vote for Hillary Clinton in spite of the fact that she is a political clone of Obama. This disgraceful bunch of leftists, in the majority will apparently vote Democrat till their dying day. I wouldn't go to see Clinton talk let alone pay to do so.

  5. The military relationship between IDF and American military has never been closer than it is now. This strong tie, nurtured over the years by both forces, is a tremendous influence on American foreign policy no matter who the president is. American Generals take their final orders from the president; but those same generals have the most influence on the president's decisions.

  6. What a disgrace, that money designated for charitable situations is given to the rabid voice of Hillary. I have no perceptible views on the American Jews but if this is what they do and how they waste money and make plans to destroy their own people, I feel very sad.

    Presume financial political manaoevers like this are all about leverage for favors when the time is right.

  7. I was born Jewish and I’m now completed. I have a question because I saw it in my own family. WHY are Jewish people Democrats? Everyone ran from one form of tyranny or another and yet NOW this brand of NWO communism would work? Please explain this to me.

  8. I remember Hitlery kissing and hugging Yasser Arafat's despicable wife after a tirade against the Jewish state and Jews in general.I remember this from many years ago and I have never forgotten it.Why are charities allowed to pay for speeches.A good many people should be in jail.Hitlery and the Clinton Foundation are in legal jeopardy and I hope that she will be held accountable for using the charity as a slush fund for herself,her friends and family members.The Clinton Foundation started out as the Haitian earthquake fund charity that the Bushes and the Clinton started.The Haitians received no help.Hideous is the relationship between the Bushes and the Clintons going all the way back to the drug running into the Mena airport in Arkansas in the 70s.

  9. It sickens me that the stupid pathetic leftist liberal Jews never seem to learn, and continue to vote democrat. What is wrong with them? The majority of them voted for that Anti Semite muslim black bastard Hussein Obama, now they can't wait to vote for that fat, ugly , evil, pants suit wearing Anti Semite pile of Hillary Clinton. This miserable lying criminal will say and promise anything to get a vote. Clinton will sell Israel and the Jews down the river in a heartbeat. Any Jew who votes for this nasty dyke should hang down their head in shame. As for Hillary Clinton do the world a favor and drop dead!

  10. a great intellectual reply from people given the responsibility of raising and doling out funds to assist Jews:
    YOU HAVE TO SPEND MONEY TO MAKE MONEY!

    iF SPENDING MONEY TO THE EXTENT THEY HAD FOR A
    iSRAEL BASHING POLITICIAN IS SEEN AS A WAY TO WAKE UP THE JEWS OF THE DIASPORA TO IMPORTANT VALUES,
    THEN,
    THE LEADERS OF THESE ORGANIZATIONS, ESPECIALLY THE FEDERATIONS, SHOULD BE FIRED ON THE SPOT FOR MISUSE OF FUNDING. THEY SHOULD BE FURTHER OSTRACIZED AND PREVENTED FROM ANY INVOLVEMENT IN jEWISH CAUSES. iF MONEY SPEAKS AND THE LEADERS LACK PROPER SPEACH AND THOUGHT, WE HAVE THE WRONG PEOPLE LEADING US. tHESE FAUX LEADERS ARE OPPORTUNISTS WHO AVOID THE KEY ISSUES OF TRANSMITTING TORAH VALUES- VERY FEW OF THEM ARE OBSERVANT- IF THEY DARED LEARNED WHAT IT MEANS TO BE JEWISH IN LIFE AND THOUGHT,
    THEY WOULDN'T HAVE TO WASTE MONEY ON FOOLS
    WHO DUPE THEM INTO SPENDING TOO MUCH MONEY.

    FEDERATIONS WITH RARE EXCEPTIONS SKIRT AROUND THE ISSUE OF JEWISH SURVIVAL AND PRETEND TO PUT PROGRAM BANDAIDS ONTO THE COMMUNITY AND SIMPLY AVOID THE ONE SOLUTION TO THE STEEP SLIDE DOWNWARD INTO OBLIVION- COMMITMENT TO TORAH VALUES IN THEIR PERSONAL LIVES AND IN COMMUNITY PROGRAMMING- TRUE TZEDAKA KICKS IN WHEN jEWS BECOME KNOWLEDGEABLE. IF THE LEADERS HAVE
    LOW JEW IQs, what future is there for diaspora jews?

    They are afraid to make commitments themselves
    and certainly don't want to step on the toes of organizations that continue to 'dumb' up Jews and turn them off to
    true Torah values.

  11. There are fewer and fewer remaining Jewish charities still worthy of our support. JNF paid Bill Clinton half a million dollars.

    I stopped supporting Chicago Jewish Federation and ADL years ago for their brazen disregard for the wishes of donors.

    All those desperate pleas for money… You think you are actually helping somebody when you respond, but instead you are just feeding a bunch of blood suckers. It is just sickening to watch!

  12. maybe they love having it good in America above Israel and the Lord God who delivered them out of Egypt, and have forgotten the ten commandments one of them is. "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me" and believe their salvation lies in voting and paying for the democrats to keep them safe from harm?

  13. Ronald Regan an actor that became a politician mitt Romney a millionaire business man that became a governor of mass when he’s a Mormon from Utah it is a sad day in America when a lying unethical witch a scandal ridden political whore with a 700 dollar hair cut an a 10.000 dollar pant suit owns the democrat party as well as a Mormon from Utah but governor from mass and the Koch brothers own the republican party millions upon millions have been spent on ruining Donald trumps reputation from swearing damn ohh no to kkk member give me a break the Clintons have been friends for years with kkk leader senator Byrd best friends buddy’s hate to tell you this bills slick willys from the south and on fb a video with Hillary gushing over senator Byrd for 15 minutes kkk gran wizard for over a decade her and bills best friend but the liberal media will not tell you about bills past all the women he has raped had intercourse and BJs in our oval office with as well as a14 year old he flew 10 times to screw and Hillary tearing bills lovers apart because her husband can not keep his zipper up Hillary destroying other women instead of divorcing the scum bag the democrats have cheated Bernie a socialist Jew here to screw the middle class with a 90 %% tax off our hard working backs you take away districts and delegates an Cruz whos father was a drunk with a Canadian birth certificate not an America one whos mother came back to America when Cruz was 8 years old how come Cruz is not a Cuban citizen why do we Americans get the ah a liar who cheated Carson sent out packets and points the finger at trump he may be mafia he may be kkk he may be what a red blooded American born in America a son of immigrants that became a billionaire a citizen that has had enough a gun owner and carrier a freedom of speech man blunt straight forward to the point honest to a fault and truthful and they all hate his guts the rich and elite want him out because America loves him so both dems and rep spend millions because he stands and speaks the truth bought off corrupt politicians giving their backers millions and millions in benefits contracts its not the American citizens choices that matter at all just the rich elite screwing America and her citizens for more power and money the Koch’s bushes Obamas Clintons and Romany’s of the world are what has made America a hell hole it has become bankrupt loaded down with illegals Mexicans Muslims somalin’s citizens of other country’s living off our tax dollars conservative what does that mean any more conservative the TV media go on about kma I m an America with rights laws and a constitution broken and shredded by Obama and his socialist party the last 7years

  14. For some reason that completely eludes me, both the American Jews and the Isrealis always cozy up to the Democratic policitians and always end up on the bad end of a deal. The puzzling part is they do it over and over again. If you count the Jewish vote in this election the majority will go to Clinton. The real friends of the Isreali Nation are the Republicans but this is inevitably lost on the Jewish voter in the U.S.

  15. For the Jews who inherited or married their wealth so they could afford to promote their liberal philosophies at the expense of everybody else, this is the ultimate in manifesting their arrogant, greedy, stupidity as lemmings. The problem is these lemmings who have convinced others that they speak for all of us are the lowest of shondas. Perhaps their relatives were the ones who schemed to protect themselves in the "Transfer Agreement?"

    How can any of us be so ignorant not to realize that as Hillary has embraced the failed 2 terms of Obama, she intends to continue his policy of withdrawal to the 1967 border, defaming the unified capitol of Jerusalem, harping against settlements in the lands of Judea and Samaria, while seeking new deals with Iran at Israel's expense.

    It would be interesitng to see if this "Jewish gold" to Hillary was laundered through the Clinton Foundation and found its way back to the so-called Palestine Authority; or, perhaps to UNESCO to support publishing of books embracing anti-Semetism and eliminating Israel from the maps.

  16. Jed Dunkin Apparently when the Bush admin entered Afghanistan the cocain growth was running at 10%.
    They burnt everything to the ground and told the world what a wonderful; job they had done. Thereafter the cocain production rose to 90%. Did anyone see them advertising that ?

  17. It's absolutely infuriating to dish out such huge sums of money to such an unworthy person. Hillary is an absolute failure in everything she has done. She is running solely for herself and not the American people. Imagine if she became President how much money she'll make from her Arab friends. To add insults to injuries now the Jews are showering her with millions of dollars. It's a darn shame. The republican Party has shown again and again that it is the true friend of Israel. The democratic party is full of lies and cover ups especially when it comes to the illegal acts of Hillary Clinton. Incredible she deletes 32 minutes from her email and runs for President, while Nixon deleted only 18 minutes and he was impeached.

    Two US Veterans Help Keep History Alive! We are requesting your kind consideration to please watch the below video which is all about saying “Thanks” and paying Tribute and to Honor the WWII Allied Liberators/Veterans (The Greatest Generation) who are quickly vanishing at the rate of 500+ each day, click on http://bit.ly/1k2UrNX .

    As we are in the process of closing down The Liberator Foundation, we are in a position to accept an offer to acquire the “one-of-a-kind” magnificent Todah Memorial with travel trailer.
