• Hillary Clinton: I Don’t Know if I Take Oil Money

    Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton, who has received untold millions from the oil industry, claimed Wednesday that she is unaware of ever having received money from the fossil fuels industry.

    “Well, I don’t know that I ever have, I’m not exactly one of their favorites,” Clinton replied when asked at a campaign stop in Iowa City if she would agree not to accept Big Oil donations.

    “You have,” the man bluntly told her.

    “Have I? Well, I will check on that.” she responded before going into a diatribe about being “committed to moving away from fossil fuels toward clean renewable energy,” and being against oil drilling off the coast and in the Arctic.

    “Everyone knows where I stand,” Clinton said, adding “I go all over this country bragging about Iowa. Why? Because you are getting a third of your electricity from renewables, primarily wind.”

    Clinton was knowingly lying through her teeth to her own supporters.

    “Nearly all of the lobbyists bundling contributions for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign have at one time or another worked for the fossil fuel industry,” the liberal Huffington Post reported earlier this year, identifying almost 40 individuals who have bundled thousands of dollars from oil and gas companies, such as Chevron and ExxonMobil, for Clinton.

    The Clinton Foundation has received millions from the industry, according to research compiled by a Super-PAC, “America Rising.”
