I wrote yesterday about the non-profit group associated with former Senator Norm Coleman’s political donors, the Step Into World Peace foundation. The group’s website stopped working last week, after I started reviewing it, and it’s still down as of today.
Step Into World Peace was created to remind the world both of what happened, and that it cannot be allowed to happen again. A horrible event occurred on September 11. It shocked a city, a nation, and a globe. The world is becoming a smaller and smaller place, it is already known that each persons decisions affect everyone. The world is at a crossroads. It is now time for the world to decide what it wants. What is important to us, not because we feel like it, but because we have to.
And as I noted yesterday, some six years later the foundation has raised and spent about $100,000 but has done, as far as I can tell, virtually nothing to honor the victims of 9/11 or to “remind the world…that it cannot be allowed to happen again.”
So what exactly is the purpose of this IRS-approved non-profit organization?

The Clintons’ so-called charitable enterprise has served as a vehicle to launder money and to enrich family friends.
Years ago, I lived in Montana, a land of purple sunsets, clear streams, and snowflakes the size of silver dollars drifting through the cold air. There were no speed limits and you could legally drive drunk. My small apartment in Missoula had little privacy. In order to write, I rented an off-season fishing cabin on Rock Creek, a one-room place with a bed and a bureau. I lacked the budget for a desk. My idea was to remove a sliding door from a closet in my apartment and place it over a couple of hastily cobbled-together sawhorses.
