The elites in Washington, DC aren’t angry with President Trump for exposing Hunter Biden’s corruption in Ukraine. They’re furious with the president because Hunter Biden is the tip of the iceberg. Giving lucrative, Sopranos-style no-show jobs to the children of political elites is one of the major ways that “The Swamp” enriches itself. While a cynical person might look at the situation and call this “bribery,” corporate America (and Ukraine, and China) look at it as a way to gain favor and access to politicians. To give you a sense of just how prevalent this problem is, look no further than Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of two people who used to be some of the most powerful and corrupt folks in America.
If you listen to Chelsea Clinton speak, you might wonder if she’s capable of surviving a fourth-grade Language Arts class. She’s not impressive. But that hasn’t stopped Chelsea Clinton from landing a string of extremely high paying “jobs” through the course of her “career.”
One of Chelsea Clinton’s first private-sector jobs was working at McKinsey & Company. That’s a management consulting firm that teaches corporations how to conduct mass layoffs. McKinsey & Company does some analysis, shows a PowerPoint to the company’s board of directors, and then a guy who looks like Mitt Romney shows up in a limousine at the factory and fires your dad. Chelsea was a fresh-out-of-college 23-year-old when she got that job. Pete Buttigieg was on the board at McKinsey & Company at the same time, for what it’s worth.
Chelsea also landed a position at Avenue Capital Group, a multinational investment firm. As near as we can tell, Chelsea never took a college-level math or finance class, but she sure is a big draw for Wall Street investment firms! It’s probably just a weird coincidence that Marc Lasry, the founder of Avenue Capital Group, is a major Democrat Party donor.
He was one of the top campaign bundlers who raised more than half a million dollars for Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection. Lasry is also a bigtime donor to the campaigns of Democrat Senators and of course, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 run. Mr. Lasry donates $33,000 to the DNC every calendar year, as well as $20,000 to the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee.
In 2011, Chelsea was ready to branch out in a new direction in her career. She was easily able to land a $600,000 per year job as an “investigative journalist” for NBC News. Now in normal circumstances, a brand-new report at NBC News in 2011 would have been put on an affiliate job in a small or mid-sized city, with a salary of $3,000 to $3,600 per month. But because of Chelsea’s vast years of experience in international finance, she was worth $50,000 a month and got to jump straight to the studios in New York City, on the big anchor desk next to Brian Williams.
America will be forever grateful to Chelsea Clinton’s investigative journalism prowess. Who could forget the time that she interviewed the cartoon gecko from the Geico commercials? There’s probably no other reporter in America that could have pulled off that scoop!
