Wait...WHAT?
Don't Democrats always insist there is too much money in politics...that THEY are the party that will put heavy regulations on Hedge Fund Managers and get BIG money out of politics?
Don't Democrats insist that Republicans are the party of Wall Street, Hedge Funds and Big Banks?

If that is true...then, judging by Hedge Fund donations...Hillary must not be a Democrat.
It seems they LOVE-love-love her!
Maybe...secretly...Hillary loves them too



According to the review of donations by hedge fund owners and employees, Hillary Clinton has been the recipient of up to $122.7 million in political donations this election cycle. Donald Trump, however, has gotten a paltry $19,000 from that same segment of donors.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the amount given to Hillary Clinton by denizens of the hedge fund sector is more than twice what they gave in 2012 and constitutes a whopping 14 percent of all money donated to her so far.

The review of Clinton’s donors shows that her top five donors are owners or employees of investment firms, and seven such firms have contributed up to $48.5 million to her.

This sector of political donors have given to Republicans, but the Journal also points out that hedge funders who have given to Republican candidates have picked candidates who opposed Mr. Trump.

The massive donations to Team Hillary are in stark contrast to Clinton’s oft proclaimed desire to put an end to these types of political donations.

During her Thursday acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention, for instance, Clinton again pledged to appoint Supreme Court justices “who will get money out of politics.” If necessary, she said, “we’ll pass a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United!”

The Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United ruling helped ensure the ability of people and corporations to make political donations to whomever they wish, classifying such donations as covered under our right to freedom of speech.

In the past, Clinton has declared that the right to free political speech has had a “pernicious effect” on the country.

On the other hand, Clinton made more than $21 million delivering closed-door speeches to dozens of big banks, hedge fund companies, and investment firms.

Nonetheless, the very people on whom she says she would lower the boom have donated large sums of money to her campaign.

An old practice in Washington is that those who proclaim long lists of regulations often find high donations from those who would be regulated. It is money donated in a desperate attempt to have a seat at the table when those regulations are put in place.

This is why health insurance companies donated so heavily to President Obama and his cohorts in the run-up to Obamacare, for instance–not that those donations helped the average American.

Democrats or Republicans, it does not matter to the top wealthy
They will jump ship to whoever favors their interests.
Look at the many numbers of "Republicans" jumping on the Hillary Bandwagon.

The Left and Right meme is used to divide and conquer and give us the illusion of choice
There is no difference between both parties when it comes to Corporate and Banking lobbyists

there really should be a limit as to how much can be donated. It essentially turns dollar bills into votes - this is disgusting


See "McCutcheon v. FEC"

Hillary and the dems have Jedi mind tricked their way in to power.

Why expect them to stop now?

To find out what the establishment is up to, just look at what they accuse their opponents of; this includes both 'sides' of the aisle.

123 million to 19000 is a pretty big difference I think.

80 Million to Trump in July, now 123 Million to Hillary Clinton



I wonder how many homeless/hungry people 203 Million would help feed/clothe/shelter?

BAM!!!!!!

Truth right here .....

however many after reading AND agreeing will be sucked right back into the dreamy drama of TV.

All the money being printed and passed around could be going to much greater things than a charade of dumb and dumber.

Donald Trump and Hillary are only one person each and Donald is no establishment Republican which is what I was referring to.
They have no power anyways
Where real influence comes in is from Corporate and Banking Lobbyists

What is Trump going to do about the hundreds of lobbyists bribing politicians to the left and right of him?
We already know Hitlery will serve them and kiss their feet.

Sad to say, but I hope Trump wins only to say I told you so when it is business as usual with Billions of money buying off politicians left and right of the president

Trump only got 19K from hedge funds? Yeah right.
Nope, Clinton Is Not Completely Annihilating Trump Among Hedge Fund Donors


Robert Mercer, too, the hedge fund manager who once supported Ted Cruz, is now reportedly backing Trump. He and his daughter have reportedly given close to $500,000 to the Trump effort so far.

All told, Anthony Scaramucci, a hedge fund manager who has also publicly supported Trump and is an unofficial advisor to the campaign, says about 20% of the likely $70 million—Scaramucci’s estimate—that the Trump campaign brought in in July came from hedge fund managers or others in the industry. Scaramucci estimates that hedge fund managers have donated as much as $25 million to the Trump campaign so far.

The WSJ cited the Center for Responsive Politics as the source for its $48.5 million vs. $19,000 Clinton-Trump hedge fund donation gap. But Douglas Weber, a senior researcher for the Center for Responsive Politics, says he doesn’t know how the newspaper came up with those totals.

When will people learn to not believe everything Trump says.

As soon as she said she would pursue a constitutional amendment for Citizens United to be overturned, that should have scared the hell out of any of these groups.

I doubt she'll be getting large swaths of money from them in the general.

But regardless, Hillary will probably very good for those goons on Wall Street. So would Trump though with his tax plan.

So you're comparing Trump's $80M "small dollar donations" to Hillary's 'Hedge Fund' $123M?
The thread is about HEDGE FUND donations.



(CNN)Donald Trump's campaign posted $80 million in fundraising last month in conjunction with the Republican Party, mostly through small-dollar donations it solicited from supporters online and by mail.

Yep
The numbers only get larger each year
The biggest corporations in this country no longer compete for customers
They compete for politicians and slave labor trade deals and I do not see that changing with Trump and especially not Hillary. Customers, Workers and Citizens do not matter to them, only exec and shareholder pay.

When we had Consumer Oriented Capitalism in this country, we had the highest quality products in the world
When Major Corps took over the government, they switched to shareholder oriented capitalism, stagnant wages and gave consumers cheap Chinese Trinkets

Citizens United was a major mistake

When they completely take over the media, their fascists plans will be complete

You some kind of socialist commie? We are talking about Clinton and Trump not Sanders the one candidate that really wanted to help the poor.

We don't know how much of this hedge fund money might have
come from failed hedge funds too, such as Clintons son in law,
he recently filed for bankruptcy after losing 90% of the investors
money. He could have slushed money to the CF, and hedge fund
donations to her campaign.
