31 months reporting Clinton Foundation/Australia - significant development later today 😡
A useful treatise on why we no longer need political parties from the numerate C Ortel

Julie Bishop has potentially given the Clintons a piece of every single $3.8BN PA Australian aid contract

Hands up all those who'd like a piece of Australia's $3.8BN annual aid program?

Just clip the ticket from every contract let.  You little ripper!

Do some of the ideas in this June, 2014 video from the "Shared Value Initiative" sound familiar?

Here are Ira Magaziner and Bill Clinton talking about their plans to monetize charity and aid in 2007 - right about the time the Clinton HIV/Aids Initiative Inc was being deregistered for failure to adhere to financial regulations.

Today we unveil another of the Clinton Foundation's clandestine influence peddling incursions into Australia's foreign aid funding arrangements.

This is a doozy.  

It happened with Julie Bishop's active assistance.  Bill couldn't have done it without her.

We're used to the Clinton Foundation securing hundreds of millions in donations under the cover of contracts for HIV/Aids, Climate Change, Women, Racism etc.

Julie Bishop's changes would position Clinton associated interests at the head of every single aid/development contract between commercial entities and the Australian Government.

A new way of doing business indeed.

On 31 August 2015 Julie Bishop made this announcement:


Today I announce a new strategy to enhance the Australian Government’s engagement with the private sector across all areas of the aid program.

Engaging the Private Sector: Creating Shared Value Through Partnership invites business to work with the Australian Government to help solve our region’s development challenges.

Here's Julie introducing the benign sounding arrangements in September 2015.  To get with the program, you'll have to get with the program, which means using the shared value jargon etc.


Here is the website for the Shared Value Project as launched by Julie Bishop in her "new strategy" announcement on 31 August 2015.

Julie tells us that the science is settled on how Australia's aid should be spent.  There is no less an authority than a "global consensus" standing behind this Clinton baby.

So what is The Shared Value Project in Australia, the key to Bishop's "strategy to enhance the Australian Government’s engagement with the private sector across all areas of the aid program".

The Clinton Foundation (and its multifarious, nefarious connections and colourful business identity friends) jumped on board the revolutionary Shared Value Idea on 2012.

Screen Shot 2016-09-26 at 3.50.01 pm

By Monday, 12 May 2014, one year before J. Bishop discovered it, Professor Michael Porter's revolutionary idea that shared value means “creating economic value in a way that also creates value for society" had been bought big time by the Clintons.

Shared value like GMH making money out of cars that get you places.  Or hotel rooms that let you snore privately.  Drug companies that make dough by making you better etc.  

I think Porter should have quit at 5 forces.

Three Ways CGI Commitments Integrate Shared Value


0 0 1

This week, the Shared Value Leadership Summit meets in New York City, featuring contributions by a number of members of the CGI community. Tomorrow morning’s opening session— which will be live webcast—includes remarks from Professor Michael E. Porter and a panel including Tony O. Elumelu of Heirs Holdings and Arif Naqvi of The Abraaj Group. The summit itself is a result of a 2012 CGI Commitment to Action by FSG and partners to launch the Shared Value Initiative (SVI), with the goal of helping companies learn about and adopt principles of “shared value.”

As defined by Porter and Mark R. Kramer in 2011, shared value means “creating economic value in a way that also creates value for society.” As part of the 2012 commitment, SVI works with its partners to spread learnings and the practice of shared value concepts, and developing research to this effect. Since 2012, SVI has doubled its commitment partners from 15 to 30, including a variety of CGI members from across sectors. SVI has also certified more than 80 individuals as “shared value consultants,” and is engaging over 2,000 professionals on a regular basis through their online platform. 

Michael Porter and Mark Kramer's Foundation Strategy Group was set up in 1999 to help charities do good.   God only knows what they were on when they allowed the Clinton virus in.

It took the Clinton magic and 17 years of thinking music for Australia to work out that the future for our nation's aid program involved doing things of economic value that also create value for society.

So there you have it.  Why sweat it out competing for individual contracts when you can clip the ticket for all of them.

Oh, and you'll never guess what one of the showcase Sharing Value projects for DFAT is!

15 September 2013 Here's Bishop's state of mind as she transitioned from Opposition to Government and her ministerial role.

New Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop, primed to take on the world

AS Hillary Clinton, then the most powerful woman in the world, was being wined and dined last year at a high-powered function at Indiana, Cottesloe, she had a visitor to her table.

 The steely-eyed, Armani-suited Julie Bishop had sought her out for a one-on-one chat about the challenges of being a female Secretary of State.

Clinton leaned into Bishop and said: “Believe in yourself. Don’t let others define you.’’

Those eight words are etched in Bishop’s memory. They’re even more apt as she is set to be the nation’s first female foreign affairs minister, following the Coalition’s election win last Saturday.

“It was a special moment,’’ Bishop recalls. “She spoke of the challenges of being a female foreign minister. I took a lot from that meeting.’’


21 September 2014 (New York time, 22 SEP 16 AST) - Julie Bishop and Bill Clinton witness a new MOU between our government and the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI).

That MOU was necessary because our first $25M Clinton MOU was with the Clinton HIV/Aids Initiative Inc (CHAI), an entity that operated unlawfully and was deregistered/dissolved by US Regulators.  Not that DFAT seemed to mind.


The original 22 February 2006 and superseding 2014 MOUs are exhibited by DFAT following an FOI application here



Australia and the Clinton Health Access Initiative transforming health in the Asia Pacific region

Media release

22 September 2014

Former US President Bill Clinton and I have witnessed the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) committing Australia and the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) to work together to transform access to health in developing countries over the next five years.

The MOU will support Australia’s $5 billion aid program, which encourages innovation in research and new technologies to promote sustainable economic growth and alleviate poverty. It will also build expertise and networks in facilitating public‑private partnerships, civil society, and private sector financing for health investments.

Australia has previously worked with CHAI in Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Vietnam and China to build capacity in government health services and systems, improve access to life‑saving technologies and lower the costs of treatment. 

The Australian Government will pursue these innovative partnerships to strengthen health systems, improve maternal and child health and tackle communicable diseases, including control of drug-resistant malaria and tuberculosis. 

I have announced the establishment of a Development Innovation Hub within the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade which will test creative ideas and strategies to address different development challenges.

Since 2006, Australia has contributed $88 million to CHAI and its sister organisation, the Clinton Foundation.

Looks like the time spent with the Clintons has paid off handsomely Julie.

For the Clintons.

Australia, not so much.

Can you still buy Bex or Vincents powerders?  I need a handful and a good lie down.
