President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Push Gay Rights Fights Overseas

by Dr. Susan Berry Some gay activists overseas are urging President Barack Obama to back off his aggressive push for American-style global gay rights, which has made their cause more difficult in their countries, and, in some cases, even led to increased violence.

Clinton Foundation in Campaign Tailspin

Clinton Foundation in Campaign Tailspin From Kenneth P. Vogel writing at Politico: A handful of deep-pocketed donors are reconsidering their gifts to the $2 billion Clinton Foundation amid mounting questions about how it’s spending their money and suggestions of influence peddling, according to donors and others familiar with the foundation’s fundraising. One major donor who contributed at least $500,000 to the foundation last year said a 2015 donation is less likely because of revelations about sloppy record-keeping and huge payments for travel and administrative costs. “There are a lot of factors and the reputational is among them,” said the donor,… View Article
