It seems Secretary of State John Kerry has taken a few tips from his predecessor, Hillary Clinton, especially when it comes to making money or helping out the “family business”. Afterall, if Hillary Clinton can get away with making billions through her “pay-to-play” scandals for the Clinton Foundation, what’s wrong with a few harmless million dollars going to Kerry’s family or non-profit organization? Two can play this game, right? In fact you may even say, Hillary planted the seed, but John Kerry came up with the seed money.
John Kerry’s daughter, Dr. Vanessa Kerry, is the founder of Seed Global Health in 2012. Seed’s flagship program is the Global Health Service Partnership (GHSP) — a joint initiative with the Peace Corps and the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. I think you will find there are a lot of similarities between Clinton’s foundation where they follow havoc and destruction around the world and then make money from it and the Seed program or GHSP. Because like the Clinton Foundation, much of this wonderful Seed program was funded by our wonderful government with a lot of help from the hard-working tax dollars of the American people. As the “Church Lady” on Saturday Night Live would say…”Well, isn’t that special?”
H/T The Daily Caller:
More than $9 million of Department of State money has been funneled through the Peace Corps to a nonprofit foundation started and run by Secretary of State John Kerry’s daughter, documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation show.
The Department of State funded a Peace Corps program created by Dr. Vanessa Kerry and officials from both agencies, records show. The Peace Corps then awarded the money without competition to a nonprofit Kerry created for the program.
Initially, the Peace Corps awarded Kerry’s group — now called Seed Global Health — with a three-year contract worth $2 million of State Department money on Sept. 10, 2012, documents show. Her father was then the chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, which oversees both the Department of State and the Peace Corps.
Seed secured a four-year extension in September 2015, again without competition. This time, the Peace Corps gave the nonprofit $6.4 million provided by the Department of State while John Kerry was secretary of state.
Kerry and government officials colluded to launch the program and ensure that Seed would get the contract.
In addition, the officials in that meeting also assured Kerry that she would not have to compete with other groups for Department of State funds.

What I find amazing is here is the daughter of the secretary of state, John Kerry, who applies for a grant or funds, she doesn’t have to compete, the paperwork is buried, the process itself is “fast tracked”, she (Vanessa) draws a $140,000 salary on part-time work, and she got an additional extension above and beyond their normal policy, but move along little sheeple…nothing new to see here.
Then, they have the nerve to say:
“It’s unclear why the Peace Corps violated its five-year policy by giving Seed seven years of non-competitively awarded funding.”
Uh – DUH! It’s called nepotism.
But then, they added this because they think we are really gullible:
“Peace Corps has been unable to identify any potential partners which satisfy the needs of the GHSP program” other than Seed, which was created based around the program’s needs.”
Well, that seems obvious. Create a program that only your program can support and then add guidelines or clarifications, so when it’s time to renew your contract, it’s difficult for any new partners to come in and replace your program. Yep, that sounds about right!
Like I said, John Kerry has certainly learned from one of the best….Crooked Hillary Clinton. Kudos to Kerry for pulling off the same old shit Clinton did….and get away with it. You must be so proud to follow in Clinton’s footsteps and be able to pull the same scams she did and feel good that you have helped your family make money with a non-profit by cheating Americans in the long run. I’d say Hillary has taught you well that crime does pay!
