Former President Barack Obama started his own foundation only two years ago and already he’s dealing in some suspicious business.

According to documents reviewed by The Daily Caller, Obama is taking advice from the Clinton family on how to run his non-profit organization.

It also seems that Obama is taking his business down the same path as the Clinton family – one of illegal activity and controversy.

The biggest issue for both foundations is the avoidance of paying taxes.

Federal law requires that nonprofit organizations which are tax exempt stick to their IRS- approved dealings.

But since the Clinton family turned their non-profit into a $2 billion dollar global influence, Obama has the same greediness set on his own fortune.

The Daily Caller reports:

In a relatively unnoticed series of steps during the first six-years of its existence, the Clintons converted their foundation from focusing solely on the presidential library in Little Rock, Ark., to a $2 billion globe-trotting political influence-peddling machine.

According to the Clinton’s, their business was supposed to be a non-profit designed to help others.

But it seems to have led to an overreaching goal to finance the Clinton family.

The Daily Caller reports:

The transformation moved the Clinton non-profit from its declared exempt purpose in 1998 “to design, construct and initially endow a presidential archival deposit,” to the vastly expanded 2004 description of “dual missions of constructing and endowing the Clinton Presidential Center and park in Little Rock, Arkansas, and continuing the work of his presidency to strengthen the capacity of people in the United States and throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence.”

Likewise, Obama’s foundation has a similar mission statement – claiming to help others, but really is meant to restore Obama’s legacy, ego, and fortune since leaving the Oval Office.

Obama will be taking advice on how to run his organization from the very people who have been investigated numerous times for illegal actions within theirs.

The Daily Caller reports:

“The Barack Obama Foundation will both plan and develop a Presidential Center for future activities, including the Presidential Library, a museum and a broader campus, and engage in activities reflecting President Obama’s values and priorities throughout his career in public service: expanding economic opportunity, inspiring an ethic of American citizenship, and promoting peace, justice and dignity throughout the world.

“The foundation envisions a Presidential Center that, through its mission, initiatives, and physical and virtual presence, advances and interprets the themes of civic engagement, global perspective, health and wellness, environmental stewardship, public education, a spirit of innovation, and will become an anchor for economic development and cultivate a strong relationship with the library’s surrounding community.”

The most concerning part of the mission statement is the sleight of hand Obama included – to essentially accept bribes and other funding for his personal use.

However, just like the Clinton family, Obama will soon be in hot water if he does not adhere to the tax codes and regulations set by the IRS.

There is a monumental difference between establishing a presidential library, and running a multi-billion dollar business funded by bribes and embezzlement.

The Daily Caller reports:

“Congress codified this model in the Presidential Libraries Act of 1955. The Act outlined the legal authority of the General Services Administration (GSA) Administrator to accept the gift of a presidential archival depository and to maintain, operate, and protect it as part of the national archives system.”

But here’s the problem: The “model” in the 1955 law, as well as its subsequent amendments and IRS regulations, focuses only on construction and operation of a presidential library, and says nothing about the vastly broader purposes like those that define the Clinton Foundation and appear set to do so for the Obama nonprofit as well.

The IRS “Organizational Test” specifies that “in no case will an organization be considered to be organized exclusively for one or more exempt purposes if, by the terms of its articles, the purposes for which such organization is created are broader than the specified charitable purposes.”

On its most recently available IRS Form 990 tax return, the Obama Foundation described its mission as “the development of the presidential center.” Nothing is said about the presidential library envisioned by the 1955 law.

Do you think Obama is really trying to expand his foundation into a business, like the Clintons have?
