The more things change the more they stay the same.
As Biden grows in historic unpopularity the Clintons are sliding in.
On March 4, 2022, former President Bill Clinton announced that they will be restarting the Clinton Global Initiative firm to address the new challenges that are about to face the world.
“Cooperation and coordination has never been more urgent than it is now,” wrote the former president. “The COVID-19 pandemic has ripped the cover off of longstanding inequities and vulnerabilities across our global community. The existential threat of climate change grows every day.”
“Democracy is under assault around the world, most glaringly in Ukraine where Russia has launched an unjustified and unprovoked invasion that has put millions of lives in grave danger,” he continued. “The number of displaced people and refugees worldwide is higher than it has ever been—more than one in 95 of all people alive on the planet today has been forced to flee their home—and rising.”
Partners in the @ClintonGlobal community are on the ground in Ukraine and across the region to provide urgent critical care. Here’s a look at some of these important efforts: https://t.co/QAtjiGnRiS
“Instead of issuing traditional grants to groups in need, the Clinton Global Initiative’s primary function is to convene powerful figures from the business, political or entertainment worlds and encourage them to pledge contributions for future projects called ‘commitments,’” noted the Examiner.
“However, the group’s most recent philanthropic portfolio indicates fewer than half of the thousands of commitments made since 2005 have ever been completed,” it added. “The charity’s financial structure has also raised eyebrows, since most direct contributions go toward the annual meeting or salaries rather than philanthropy.”
The initiative was shut down in 2016 when Hillary announced she was running for president.
