Clinton Foundation in Australia - corporate details

In March 2008 Kevin Rudd met with Hillary Clinton in New York and said "Let us know if we can help with anything".

In September 2008 Rudd made this announcement in New York.

And some months went into the planning of this official official launch of the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute at the G20 in Italy, July 2009.

It's painful to watch his fawning - and his dismissal by contemporaries.

And that is Rudd's fatal flaw. The lure of celebrity is irresistible to him. He had no hope of resisting the Clintons.

Something motivated the Clinton Foundation to establish a corporate presence in Australia just before the Global Carbon Capture Institute official launch.

The Clinton Foundation was already working with various interests in Victoria, including the City of Melbourne with which it had an MOU.

What better place to incorporate its Australian presence.  Note that the Australian entity does not feature at all in the relationships with DFAT and the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative Inc.

This was all about climate change and Kevin's global ambitions.

 Here's the Wikipedia entry for Tony Wood.

Tony Wood is an Australian businessman and Energy Program Director at the Grattan Institute. He has become a prominent spokesperson for the institute since his appointment in 2011, and has written 32 articles for The Conversation related to energy, climate change and energy policy.[1] From 2002 to 2008 he was executive general manager of Origin Energy, where he held executive positions for a total of 14 years. Wood has declared interests as a shareholder of BHP Billiton and Origin Energy.[2]


Wood has worked in the energy, transport, chemical and fertiliser industries. He contributed to the Garnaut Climate Change Review in 2008 and worked with the Clinton Foundation from 2009 to 2014 as director of its Clean Energy programme. He was appointed director of the energy programme at the Grattan Institute in mid-2011, and has represented it in publications,[3] on radio[4] and at public forum.[5] He was on the executive board of the Committee for Melbourne and the Green Energy Taskforce of the Northern Territory Government. He has also worked as a financial advisor for PricewaterhouseCoopers[6] and has served as Chairperson of the Energy Retailers Association of Australia.[7]

His areas of interest include natural gas, carbon capture and storage, solar power and nuclear power.[6][8]

Nuclear power[edit]

In 2011, Wood contributed a chapter on "Nuclear power in Australia's energy future" to Australia's nuclear options, a policy perspective document for the Committee for Economic Development of Australia. He argued that the need to reduce carbon emissions in order to limit the impacts of climate change should bring into consideration the possibility of nuclear power in Australia.[8] In February 2012, Wood told interviewer Andrew Charlton that "the cost or acceptability of nuclear energy would remain a challenge in Australia."[9] Wood's publications on The Conversation declare him to be a shareholder in BHP Billiton (a resources company engaged in uranium mining and a Foundation Partner of the Grattan Institute).[2]

Solar power[edit]

In 2015, Wood told the ABC that the environmental benefits achieved by Australia's take-up of solar photovoltaic panels had come at great cost to Australian taxpayers- a net cost of "about $9 billion". He said "in the time that we had could have done a lot better, with that money, or we could have actually reduced greenhouse gas emissions a lot more cheaply... and then we could have been moving onto a different future for solar." "Solar with batteries in the future might be a much better way." John Grimes responded in defence of solar panel deployment, stating that the report Wood was referring to was "cherry-picking", and was "designed to cast solar PV in the worst possible light." [10]


Tony Wood has a postgraduate diploma in business administration from the Queensland Institute of Technology and a masters degree in Science (Physical chemistry) from the University of Queensland.[7]

Here is close ally of Bill Clinton, Bruce Lindsey.


There's SO many footnotes here, i reckon we should get
STEVE PRICE to check 'veracity'.

And HOW ironic that DFAT confirms THIS today:

VIETNAM cancels 'to this month - August' 50th anniversary
commemoration event of Battle of Long Tang'....

This is top rating on Google News Oz and that's saying something.


That freaking traitor Krudd opened up our closed borders and pulled in 54,000+ very dubious muslims on the boats and they all threw away their passports and identity papers to fast track, deceive entry into Australia and many are islamic terrorists? The bastard should be charged with treason and expelled from Australia, but what do we do, we pay Krudd an obscene pension with lavish offices, travel and staff for the rest of his damned life and we have to feed all of those muslims who so hate christians and jews?

Donald Trump: Hillary Clinton is the Bigot; I will be a Voice for ALL People


Bloody scammers! Sorry for the blunt language, but the whole thing reeks of corruption, with global warming as the pretense.

Rob Greer

Well, Kevin Rudd is nothing but a buffoon and the only thing Malcolm Turnbull has achieved since becoming our Prime Minister is to stop a Buffoon in his quest to become the UN Secretary General.

In years to come people will look back upon that day and say; "Malcolm, you have done exceedingly well". That is of course, as long as those same people don't read the full documented history of the Turnbull achievements. That, by the way, is a tome for which I have searched ... it doesn't even appear on Wikipedia. Maybe it doesn't exist.

Map that proves Donald Trump will lose election

Debra Killalea, news.com.au
August 17, 2016 3:27pm

THESE are the startling maps that reveal Donald Trump’s spectacular fall in the space of just a few weeks.

The controversial Republican presidential candidate has gone from looking like a potential winner to the thing he fears most — a massive loser.

These maps, created using RealClearPolitics’ cool electoral map generator and based on public polling, show exactly how much ground rival Hillary Clinton appears to have gained.

In July, the map projected Clinton would win 201 electoral votes compared to Trump’s 158, with 166 too close to call.

Trump’s projections in July. (Trump in red, Clinton in blue, grey is a toss up.) Picture: RealClearPolitics
A month later, Clinton’s projected total has risen to 273, while Trump’s is at 175.

It takes 270 electoral votes to win the presidency. So as it stands now, even if Trump won all the remaining undecided states, he would still lose the election. If there isn’t a huge turnaround, he has no path to victory.

The projection shows a startling difference just one month later. Picture: RealClearPolitics

This is how it looked when Obama (blue) was against Romney (red). Picture: RealClearPolitics
Chief Executive Officer of the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney Professor Simon Jackman said the projections were hardly surprising.

Prof Jackman said the political geography in the US traditionally favoured the Democrats, with the Republicans strong in a shrinking number of states.

“They have a higher hill to climb than the Democrats,” he told news.com.au

Prof Jackman said most polls now showed Clinton ahead of her rival as they have done since June.

While Trump got a small bump from the Republican Convention, his series of offensive and over the top statements had alienated both sides of the political spectrum.

“What we are seeing in the polls now isn’t that different from June when Clinton was leading by 8-9 points,” he said.

“Add to that him spectacularly alienating minorities, add to that alienating women, add to that bruising fights with his own party who can’t stomach him and it’s not surprising.”

Prof Jackman said the Democrat Convention was a spectacular piece of political theatre that occurred close to when Trump publicly attacked the Khan family whose son had died in the sacrifice of war for his country.

“It’s been one thing after another,” Prof Jackman said, referring to Trump’s growing unpopularity.

However, he warned Clinton’s entry into the White House was not a sure and certain thing and there were the debates left to go.

“Trump has a way of reinventing himself and may use these debates to give a better version of himself,” he said.

Prof Jackman said the other danger Clinton faced was the potential emergence of a scandal that would reflect badly on her campaign.

“I can’t help but wonder if the Clinton Foundation could be the source of this,” he said, adding the Republicans may yet find a wildcard here to use against her.

Outspoken filmmaker Michael Moore has revealed that he believes Trump has deliberately sabotaged his campaign to avoid looking like a loser.

In his latest blog, Moore writes that Trump never wanted to be president and only ran because he was unhappy with his deal as host of NBC show The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice.

However, his bluff for more money backfired after NBC fired him over his offensive comments on Mexicans, among other things, but not before something even more surprising happened.

“Trump, to his own surprise, ignited the country, especially among people who were the opposite of billionaires,” Moore writes. “He went straight to #1 in the polls of Republican voters” and

Moore writes it soon dawned on Trump that he would have to go through with his stunt.

But after a series of apparent gaffes, including attacking the family of a slain soldier, he was looking for a way out as he doesn’t want to lose come November 8.

“Maybe the meltdown of the past three weeks was no accident,” Moore reveals. “Maybe it’s all part of his new strategy to get the hell out of a race he never intended to see through to its end anyway.”

Just last month Moore listed five reasons why Trump would win the election, ranging from a dislike of Clinton to feelings of voter disenfranchisement.

He also wrote how states previously loyal to the Democrats will turn against Hillary while the rise of the angry white man will ultimately win out.

The RealClearPolitics projections are not the only indication that Trump will lose the race to the White House.

Clinton appears to be ahead in the race and currently has at least a six-percentage-point lead over her rival, the latest Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll shows.

The Democratic presidential nominee’s support has ranged from 41 per cent to 44 per cent since late last month, and was about 41 per cent in the August 11-15 online poll, Reuters reported.

Trump’s support on the other hand is not as solid, having experienced wider shifts ranging from 33 per cent to 39 per cent. Polls show he is favoured by about 35 per cent of likely voters.

Reuters compared this to Barack Obama’s lead over Republican rival Mitt Romney back in 2012, when he was favoured by 46 per cent of voters compared to 41 per cent.

According to the Associated Press, the numbers are looking increasingly stark for Trump with his support plummeting in states such as Colorado, Virginia and North Carolina.

Clinton is also starting to invest more time and money in Georgia and Arizona, states that any Republican running for president should be able to count on.

The AP is also predicting the road to 270 electoral votes increasingly looks to be a series of uphill climbs and dead ends for Trump.


There is no doubt Trump has had a bad few weeks with Republicans acknowledging his campaign may well be over, with some already starting to publicly turn on him.

Republican Richard Hanna of New York became the first congressional Republican to reveal he would vote for the Democratic presidential nominee over Trump.

Trump also raised eyebrows when he accused President Obama and Clinton of being the “founders” of Islamic State, a comment that received wide condemnation from both sides of politics.

The week prior his comments regarding “Second Amendment people” at a rally in North Carolina drew gaps of horror after he insinuated pro-gun followers use violence to thwart Clinton.

seeker of truth

He have must be a useful idiot for his wife to get a foot in the door with her businesses, first in Qld, then Australia wide then in the UK. How could she stand living with the prima donna in the same house. Maybe she couldn't and pushed him into the foreign service and politics to get him to spend as much time away from home as possible.

Remember his shopping trip to Bunnings. What a fool.

I see that the Foundation provided a certified copy of its constitution in March 2009. It would be interesting to see if it contained the By Laws in relation to the new purposes of the Foundation, including Clinton Health Access Initiative and Clinton Global Climate Change etc to confirm as to when the Foundation could properly negotiate on projects covering these purposes.

Our government should not have entered into any agreements, Memoranda of Understanding with the Clinton Foundation in Australia until the originsation was registered as a foreign company in Australia and the Constitution permitted the Foundation to engage in the projects it had negotiated with our Government. The Foundation was not registered as a foreign company until May 2009. All agreements and Memoranda of Understanding were signed in Australia therefore Australian law applied.

I think the fact that the DFAT spokesman stated the dept accepted the signature of Bill Clinton to the Memorandum of Understanding in 2006 as he was the founder of the Foundation says it all as to why the rush to sign these documents without taking the time to do due diligence on the status of the Foundation in Australia.

It would seem that any documents entered into prior to the Foundation's registration in May 2009 were not legally enforceable due to lack of registration in our country. Pity our government departments (State & Federal) were so starry eyed when it came to dealing with Bill Clinton that proper procedure fell by the wayside.


And Rudd's elite sycophant buddy Green continues in Singapore; Christ knows how many from the dark continent have conveniently flown in to Oz, one way tickets, thanks to tool Green.
