American historian Webster Griffin Tarpley says former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton has received 500,000 dollars in jewelry from Saudi Arabia to vote for war on Syria. Hillary is not longer in a position to vote on a resolution for military intervention, but she can use her influence to convince members of Congress to authorize war on Syria.

“The Saudis and the Qataris are reported to be deploying huge amounts of money for bribery, bribery to the families and political and business interests of these members of congress,” Tarpley said in an interview with Press TV on Friday“Hillary Clinton has received 500,000 dollars in jewelry from the king of Saudi Arabia and Hillary Clinton just came out for war,” he added.President Barack Obama is waiting for congressional approval to attack Syria after Washington accused the Syria of an alleged chemical attack last month.

On Friday, Obama acknowledged that it would be a "heavy lift" convincing members of Congress over launching a new war in the Middle East."It's conceivable at the end of the day I don't persuade a majority of the American people that it's the right thing to do," he said adding "And then each member of Congress is going to have to decide."Tarpley also said that the US war on Syria with congressional authorization, but without a UN Security Council mandate “is illegal.”

The US president is set to make his case for a military strike on Syria in an address to the American public on TuesdayOn Wednesday, US Secretary of State John Kerry said that some Arab countries have offered to pay the entire cost of the war on Syria. “With respect to Arab countries offering to bear costs and to assist, the answer is profoundly yes,” Kerry said in the House of Representatives. “They have. That offer is on the table.”In response to questions by US lawmakers about the details of the offer, Kerry said, “they have been quite significant. I mean, very significant.”

“In fact, some of them have said that if the US is prepared to go do the whole thing, the way we’ve done it previously in other places, they’ll carry that cost. That’s how dedicated they are to this,” he added.

Prove it.
War is like a damned video game to these elitist azzholes. This is not a game folks. It's real.

Read the following Article and you will see where the details of the gift was published.

The Hill described the gift as "white gold jewelry with teardrop rubies and diamonds containing a necklace, a bracelet, earrings and a ring."

The gift gained attention in the August 30 publication of a 2012 list of gifts in the Federal Register.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton outpaced President Barack Obama last year in receiving lavish gifts from foreign leaders.

Clinton received gold jewelry worth half a million dollars from King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. The State Department said the gift included a necklace bracelet, ring and earrings. The white gold was adorned with teardrop rubies and diamonds. Clinton also got gold, sapphire and diamond jewelry worth $58,000 from Brunei's queen.

Obama's most expensive gift was a $16,500 gold-plated clock from Crown Prince Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, the Saudi defense minister.

Obama, a big sports fan, scored a red, white and blue basketball from — and autographed by — Chinese President President Xi Jinping. British Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife, Samantha, gave Obama a customized Dunlop table tennis table with United States and United Kingdom decals and paddles worth $1,100.

The gifts were among a bounty of vases, watches, artwork and other items given to the Obama family and top U.S. officials in 2012, according to the department's Office of Protocol, which catalogs the gifts and publishes an annual listing.

But don't look for Clinton or Obama to pocket the swag. Under law, most gifts must go to the National Archives or General Services Administration, unless recipients reimburse the U.S. Treasury for them.

Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny gave Obama a package of gifts worth $7,246.19 that included a certificate of Obama's Irish heritage, two silver shamrock charm bracelets and a lamb's wool scarf and blanket.

Myanmar President Thein Sein offered gifts of jewelry for the first lady, Michelle Obama, and the Obama daughters, Malia and Sasha. The first lady was given a $4,200 pearl necklace with a gold and diamond clasp. The Obama daughters received two flower brooches of pearl, diamond and gold valued at $4,440.

Britain's Samantha Cameron gave the first lady a cashmere scarf by J. Saunders worth $480.

There were gifts that could be consumed and those from display.

Clinton got $560 worth of cognac from Russian President Vladimir Putin. Obama received a saber with a 34-inch blade and a silver filigree handle from Mongolian President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj.

Vice President Joe Biden got a silver knife and chopsticks with silver ends from Mongolia's prime minister and a female bare-breasted bust from Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

The gift list published in the Federal Register also included a present Obama received back in 2009. It was package of artwork worth $124,000 given to the president by Silvio Berlusconi, Italy's flamboyant former premier. Included was a large book of art, photographs and text by Marilena Ferrari along with a gold-painted box with bookmark and magnifying glass.

The State Department said its gift listings sometimes run late due to processing.

Then why is she still here?

The definitive word is 'Former'. She accepted these gifts after her bloody reign ended. Don't think we can get her on this.

Of course Qatar & the Saudi's are funding rebel groups in Syria, they have been trying to get Assad to allow their gas pipeline for years, with no success!

They talked about oil connections to the Iraq war, but now we have CLEAR motivations by backers of this Syrian invasion!

This article goes a great job of spelling out many of the details:

No time limitation. She can still be heal accountable.

doesn't the original 13th amendment also state no one with a title of nobility, etc, is eligible to hold any office under this Constitution?

It seems apparent we should remove all lawyers and other such from government permanently and also from being citizens of the Republic of the united States of America.

Jim the problem is not lawyers, it is corrupt politicians that accept financial gifts from people that wish to control how they vote. The original 13th amendment was primarily written to prevent elected officials from selling favors to the highest bidders. I think that it is wrong government officials to accept bribes regardless of their profession. 

A lawyer that twists or distorts the original intent of the Constitution is not honoring his oath and should be dismissed not because he is a lawyer, but because he is a traitor. A banker, teacher or an accountant that dishonors his oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution is should also be indicted and prosecuted for treason.
