The Clintons: A Timeline. 2010 to present.

The Donation

“Politics gives guys so much power that they tend to behave badly around women. And I hope I never get into that.” -Bill Clinton

“What difference, at this point, does it make?” -Hillary Clinton during the Benghazi trial

2010 

In a prepared speech, Hillary Clinton drew analogies between the Iron Curtain and the free and unfree Internet. Chinese officials reacted negatively towards it and the speech garnered attention as the first time a senior American official had clearly defined the Internet as a key element of American foreign policy.

A $500,000 donation was made by the Algerian Embassy for the 8.8 magnitude Haitian earthquake relief effort. This followed a similar trend in Algerian sudden interest in American relief efforts, in order to garner US support for the human-rights violating country. Although the final outcome was meant for Haitian support, the donation violated State department rules. The Clinton Foundation admitted in 2015 that the 2010 donation from the Algerian government was not properly approved under Obama’s 2008 guidelines for a clear separation of State department and Clinton Foundation donations. Many other countries also gave to the Foundation, but fell under the exception that monies donated as part of a long-term payment plan would be allowed if they were started before Hillary’s role at the State department. Years later, the role of the Clinton Foundation would come under bi-partisan scrutiny from nearly every level of government and the press, and would be further picked over by the Justice department, the FBI, and multiple hacking and publishing organizations.

Former President Bill Clinton was taken to a New York hospital after experiencing chest pains. Doctors inserted two stents into his native coronary artery after one of the bypass grafts from an operation five years ago became obstructed. “President Clinton is in good spirits and will continue to focus on the work of his foundation and Haiti’s relief and long-term recovery efforts,” his counselor, Douglas J. Band, said in a statement released by the former president’s office. Mr. Clinton had quadruple coronary artery bypass surgery in 2004 and later developed rare complications affecting his lungs that required another operation six months later.

In a February interview, Joe Sestak admitted that Bill Clinton offered him a job in the executive branch, if he dropped out of the primaries against Sen. Arlen Specter. Sestak declined because of his wife’s support. He eventually lost the Pennsylvania Senate election to Republican Pat Toomey. The fact that a job offer interfered with a government election prompted a White House counsel investigation, which predictably cleared Clinton and the administration of wrongdoing. This was one of many failures from the Obama administration’s record loss of midterm seats to the Republicans.

On May 21, Secretary Clinton warned of consequences for North Korea following the sinking of a South Korean warship. “We cannot allow this attack on South Korea to go unanswered by the international community,” she said.

Marc Rich, a felonious oil trader who fled capture to Switzerland, died in June. He not only had a $500,000 IRS bounty on his head and was on the FBI’s most wanted listed, but also traded with Libya’s Qaddafi and was pardoned by ex-President Bill Clinton. The money trail involving the Clintons was a long and complex path of political corruption and pay to play scandal. His death sparked an eruption of investigation by media outlets over his ties to the Clintons.

On July 31, Chelsea Clinton married Marc Mezvinsky, at the end of Hillary’s whirlwind visits to Korea, Vietnam, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. Much media attention was given to the Secretary’s busy schedule and possible inability to juggle her roles at State with her daughter’s wedding planing.

Bill Clinton began serving as an honorary chancellor for Laureate International Universities, a subsidiary of Laureate Education, the for-profit global education chain that started donating millions to Clinton in 2010. From 2010 to 2014, Bill took in $16.5 million for his role at Laureate. George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley wrote: “Laureate Education has been sued over such programs as its Walden University Online offering, which many have alleged is a scam designed to bilk students of tens of thousands of dollars for degrees.” He added: “Students say that they were repeatedly delayed and given added costs as they tried to secure degrees, leaving them deeply in debt.” Concerning the size of the speaking fee, he said it: “raises obvious concerns as to what the company was seeking to achieve and whether Laureate received any benefit from the association with the State Department given its massive international operations.”

Bill Clinton tried to reinvent Hillary’s miserable failure of a healthcare bill that led to a Republican majority as a side-effect, by claiming that if the bill was passed, the Gingrich revolution would have not stolen as many House and Senate seats. He lobbied reluctant Democrats to vote for Obamacare by saying that if they approved the bill, they would win the 2010 mid-term elections. Meanwhile, the legislation was growing more unpopular every day, and like the 90’s HillaryCare, was just as bipartisan in its unpopularity. The details that Bill wished to gloss over, included mandates to buy health insurance or face fines. These were the details that contributed to the Democrats’ Nov. 2 fall. As the election neared and polls showed the party would lose the House, Clinton dropped his Obamacare-equals-victory pitch. He later told CBS’s Bob Shieffer: “Would it be good for [Obama], in a way, if he lost the House and the Republicans came to power and had to share some of the responsibility here?” “Well, I think it would increase his chances of being re-elected,” Clinton said.

In October, Bill Clinton pressured Rep. Kendrick Meeks to drop out of the Florida race, to improve the chances of Republican turncoat Charlie Crist’s beating future GOP superstar Marco Rubio. Douglas Band served as intermediary between Meeks and Crist, to no avail. Although Clinton promised a bright future for Meeks if he quit the race, Meeks went on to lose against Marco Rubio.

Hillary led the U.S. damage control effort after WikiLeaks released confidential State Department cables containing blunt statements and assessments by U.S. and foreign diplomats, by contacting foreign leaders in Afghanistan, France, Germany, and the Gulf States, including Saudi Arabia. This would prove to be a major turning point in the Obama administration’s hard stance against whistle blowers in general, and hackers in particular.

Hillary supported the appointment of Rudy Giuliani’s buddy, Bernie Kerik, to be Secretary of Homeland Security. Kerik subsequently withdrew and not long after was indicted for ethics violations and tax fraud. For his 3rd indictment, on November 5, 2009, Kerik pled guilty to eight felony tax and false statement charges, and was sentenced to forty-eight months in federal prison and three years probation. He surrendered to the U.S. minimum security prison camp in Cumberland, Maryland, on May 17, 2010. He was discharged from federal custody on October 15, 2013, after serving five months home confinement, and his supervised release will conclude in October 2016.

In November 2010, Secretary Clinton discussed the fact that her emails to Department employees were not being received. Her Deputy Chief of Staff emailed Hillary saying that “we should talk about putting you on state email or releasing your email address to the department so you are not going to spam.” In response, the Secretary wrote, “Let’s get separate address or device but I don’t want any risk of the personal being accessible.”

The 2010 Haitian election was a mess. Held less than a year after a devastating earthquake, millions of people were displaced or otherwise disenfranchised and then-president René Préval was accused of fraud on behalf of his preferred candidate Jude Célestin. A majority of candidates held an afternoon press conference on election day denouncing the process and calling for new elections. But Washington and its allies, who had funded the election, pushed forward, telling the press that everything was okay. With billions in foreign aid on the table and Bill Clinton overseeing an international effort, a lot of money and credibility was on the line. Top State Department officials were already discussing with Haitian private sector groups plans to force Célestin out of the race. The Organization of American States (OAS) went to Haiti to analyze the results of the election. Despite not conducting a recount or any statistical test, the OAS recommended replacing Célestin in the runoff with Martelly. CEPR analyzed all the voter tally sheets at the time, conducting a statistical analysis of the vote, and later showed how the OAS recommendation could not be supported by any statistical evidence. “Nevertheless, pressure began to mount on the Haitian government to accept the OAS recommendations. Officials had their US visas revoked and US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice even went so far as to threaten to cut aid, even though the country was still recovering from the devastating earthquake earlier in the year.”

Bill Clinton spoke at a 2010 annual Chicago conference for The Radiological Society of North America. Some members at the conference and several governmental watchdog groups wondered how the bill was paid, and by whom. Before the former president had addressed the 4,250 person audience, Dr. Sam Friedman, a radiologist from Columbia, SC., said at first he was “peeved.” He, along with many others was upset that Clinton was paid $150,000 for the “rambling” speech, during which Clinton took several “gratuitous shots” at Republicans and blamed U.S. doctors for many of the healthcare problems in third world countries. When he and like-minded members made their objections known to the organization, they were told the fee was paid by an “anonymous” donor. Neither the executive director nor three executive board members of the Clinton Foundation would divulge who paid Clinton’s fee. Matthew Whitaker, executive director of the Foundation for Accountability & Civic Trust, a Washington-based, non-partisan campaign and ethics watchdog group, said the anonymous donation “opens up a Pandora’s box of questions including who funded this speech and what their motivations were.”

State Department staffers wrestled for weeks in December 2010 over a serious technical problem that affected emails from then-Secretary Hillary Clinton’s home email server, causing them to temporarily disable security features on the government’s own systems, according to emails released in 2016. The emails, reviewed by The Associated Press, show that State Department technical staff disabled software on their systems intended to block phishing emails. They were trying urgently to resolve delivery problems with emails sent from Clinton’s private server.

“This should trump all other activities,” a senior technical official, Ken LaVolpe, told IT employees in a Dec. 17, 2010, email. Another senior State Department official, Thomas W. Lawrence, wrote days later in an email that deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin personally was asking for an update about the repairs. Abedin and Clinton, who both used Clinton’s private server, had complained that emails each sent to State Department employees were not being reliably received. After technical staffers turned off some security features, Lawrence cautioned in an email, “We view this as a Band-Aid and fear it’s not 100 percent fully effective.”

The metaphor of a wildfire seemed to apply to what got started in the Arab World late in 2010. A rise in the use of social media was a catalyst that spread community action and reporting of government corruption, humanitarian rights violations and foul labor practices. Following the Tunisian Revolution in late December, protests were renewed with the self-immolation of Tunisian Mohamed Bouazizi. This wave of unrest quickly enveloped Algeria, Jordan, Egypt and Yemen, then spread to other countries. The Arab Spring protests included various groups dissatisfied with the existing system, including many unemployed, political and human rights activists, labor, trade unionists, students, professors, lawyers. Major insurgencies in Syria, Libya and Yemen resulted along with civil uprisings in Egypt and Bahrain, large street demonstrations in Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco and Oman, and minor protests even in Saudi Arabia. The end result is still yet to be seen for a few countries, but already 6 governments were overthrown and 3 civil wars erupted.

Hillary Clinton ranked 5th in the Executive Branch with an estimated net worth of $31,195,006 in 2010. Bill Clinton raised $10,655,000 in speaking fees for the year.

2011

Days after the technical crisis, on Jan. 9, 2011, an IT worker was forced to shut down Clinton’s server because he believed “someone was trying to hack us.” Later that day, he wrote, “We were attacked again so I shut (the server) down for a few min.” It was one of several occasions when email access to Clinton’s BlackBerry smartphone was disrupted because her private server was down, according to the documents. While the US State Department was kindly looking the other way over illegal use of technology to hide felonious data from getting into the hands of the “right-wing conspiracy,” the people of Tunisia ousted their corrupt leader, setting off very complex wave of changes across the Arab world. By January, the Arab Spring protests were gaining world-wide attention and mostly support.

Amid threats from Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi that he would fight to his “last drop of blood,” President Obama responded to the unscheduled breakdown of leadership in the Arab World by forcing new sanctions on Libya. Meanwhile the governments of Egypt and Yemen were overthrown after deadly protests were met with internet and phone blocking.

The 2011 Egyptian protests posed the most challenging foreign policy crisis for the administration yet. Clinton’s public response quickly evolved from an early assessment that the government of Hosni Mubarak was “stable”, to a stance that there needed to be an “orderly transition [to] a democratic participatory government”, to a condemnation of violence against the protesters. The Clinton-run State Department’s approval of chemical and biological exports to the Egyptian government increased in volume just as dollars flowed from Mubarak-linked entities into the coffers of Clinton family concerns. A group closely associated with the Mubarak government paid Bill Clinton a $250,000 speaking fee in 2010, less than 4 months before the Egyptian revolution began.

Obama came to rely upon Clinton’s advice, organization, and personal connections in the behind-the-scenes response to developments. He would later go on to admit that the U.S. handling of the 2011 Libyan crisis was his worst action as president. As Arab Spring protests spread throughout the region, Clinton was at the forefront of a U.S. response that she recognized was sometimes contradictory, backing some regimes while supporting protesters against others.

By the end of February 2012, rulers had been forced from power in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Yemen; civil uprisings had erupted in Bahrain and Syria; major protests had broken out in Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, and Sudan; and minor protests had occurred in Mauritania, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Djibouti, Western Sahara, and Palestine. Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali fled to Saudi Arabia on 14 January 2011 following the Tunisian Revolution protests. In Egypt, President Hosni Mubarak resigned on 11 February 2011 after 18 days of massive protests, ending his 30-year presidency. The Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown on 23 August 2011, after the National Transitional Council (NTC) took control of Bab al-Azizia. He was killed on 20 October 2011, in his hometown of Sirte after the NTC took control of the city. Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh signed the GCC power-transfer deal in which a presidential election was held, resulting in his successor Abd al-Rab Mansur al-Hadi formally replacing him as the president of Yemen on 27 February 2012, in exchange for immunity from prosecution. Weapons and Tuareg fighters returning from the Libyan Civil War stoked a simmering conflict in Mali which has been described as ‘fallout’ from the Arab Spring in North Africa.

Saudi Arabia received a little less than $5 million in Category 14 authorizations in 2008 and 2009, but then in 2010 — Clinton’s first full fiscal year in office — the State Department approved $18 million of such authorizations. Saudi Arabia is one of the Clinton Foundation’s largest donors, having given at least $10 million in the years before Hillary Clinton became secretary of state.

clinton-foundation

 

Algeria received just $2,110 worth of State Department authorizations in the chemical and biological weapons category in fiscal 2008. But the next fiscal year — 80 percent of which was under Clinton’s tenure — the country received more than $6 million worth of such Category 14 authorizations. Five-point-eight million dollars of the authorizations were for items classified as “tear gases and riot control agents.” The next year, the Algerian government gave the Clinton Foundation $500,000. Amid the Arab Spring revolts in 2011, Algerian security forces used tear gas on protesters in the capital.

Moroccan cash also flowed to the Clinton Foundation, with little to no press coverage and completely against the agreement set up between the Clintons and Obama.

As Ohio and Wisconsin were passing anti-Union bills, Libya was on fire. At the same time that a no-fly zone was imposed on Libya, one was also imposed on Gaza for strategic reasons. The media and the White House were silent.

In an oddly public backing of violent regime change, Secretary Clinton said she would meet with Libyan rebel leaders to take steps to track and prosecute Gaddafi loyalists. UN backing of a Libyan no-fly zone predictably got approved, along with authorization of “all necessary measures.” These same “smart power” techniques of Hillary and the State Department’s Kissinger playbook are what led to the initial de-stabilization of Iraq and Syria, and are the reason people 6 years later would point the finger at her and Obama, when it comes to the dramatic rise of the Islamic State. A no-fly zone is a pretty way of saying, “we will shoot down civilians, enemies, anything and it will be legal.” Sanctions are a polite way of summing up the imprisoning of an entire nation, while cutting it off from much needed aid from the rest of the world. If the planet is a family, the Obama administration would be its rotten parents that are constantly grounding freedom-lovers for years. Except in this analogy, extreme videotaped murder and violent overthrow of world governments, currencies and fuel supplies are the result of nasty parenting. CIA officers on the ground in Libya coordinated with rebels, while the White House supposedly mulled over arming the rebels in order to oust Gaddafi. Why the CIA was there at all is anyone’s guess. Could it be for the arming, funding and training of rebel and terrorist groups, with the aim of regime change and distraction from the oil pipelines and land seizures? Or maybe they were there to oversea the brownstone operations; to make sure the pipeline and foreign bank puppets rubber stamped every shadow dealing, or else pay the consequences of released video taped pedophilia.

Meanwhile, in Japan, one of the largest ever earthquakes triggered the Fukushima Disaster, which rated at the same level as Chernobyl. Isn’t it funny that the U.S. finds the time to police oil-rich states, but leaves Japan and most of Asia alone?

As the Libyan Civil War took place, Clinton’s shift in favor of military intervention aligned her with Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice and National Security Council figure Samantha Power, and was a key turning point in overcoming internal administration opposition from Defense Secretary Gates, security advisor Thomas E. Donilon, and counter-terrorism advisor John Brennan in gaining the backing for, and Arab and U.N. approval of, the 2011 military intervention in Libya. Secretary Clinton testified to Congress that the administration did not need congressional authorization for its military intervention in Libya, despite objections from some members of both parties that the administration was violating the War Powers Resolution, and the State Department’s legal advisor argued the same when the Resolution’s 60-day limit for unauthorized wars was passed (a view that prevailed in a legal debate within the Obama administration). Clinton later used U.S. allies and what she called “convening power” to promote unity among the Libyan rebels as they eventually overthrew the Gaddafi regime. The aftermath of the Libyan Civil War saw the country becoming a failed state, and the wisdom of the intervention and interpretation of what happened afterward would become the subject of considerable debate.

NSA whistle blower, William Binney, made reference on Aaron Klein Investigative Radio and before a Senate Judiciary Committee that then-FBI director Robert S. Mueller could have easily accessed various secret databases used to track terrorists. He said that, regarding Clinton’s deleted emails from her private server, the FBI could have used those databases to read Hillary’s deleted emails, which he admitted the NSA had in full. This info was backed up by the 2010 Edward Snowden breach. “So if the FBI really wanted them they can go into that database and get them right now,” Aaron Klein asked, about the Clinton’s emails as well as DNC emails. Asked point blank if he believed the NSA has copies of “all” of Clinton’s emails, including the deleted correspondence, Binney replied in the affirmative. “Yes,” he responded. “That would be my point. They have them all and the FBI can get them right there.” Binney further claimed that the future narrative of Russians hacking the DNC were false, and that it was most likely an inside job.

During internal deliberations of the president’s innermost circle of advisors over whether to order U.S. special forces to conduct a raid into Pakistan against Osama bin Laden, Clinton was among those who argued in favor, saying the importance of getting bin Laden outweighed the risks to the U.S. relationship with Pakistan. Following completion of the mission on May 2, which resulted in bin Laden’s death, Clinton played a key role in the administration’s decision not to release photographs of the dead al-Qaeda leader. Many in the media, the loudest of which was Judicial Watch, wanted to verify the killing and were not at all squeamish about seeing a graphic image of the supposed architect of the 9/11 murders. During internal discussions regarding Iraq in 2011, Clinton argued for keeping a residual force of up to 10,000-20,000 U.S. troops there (all ended up being withdrawn after negotiations for a revised U.S.-Iraq Status of Forces Agreement failed).

Former director of policy planning at the State Department, Anne-Marie Slaughter, sent Hillary an email on June 3 suggesting that an op-ed be written detailing the poor security and lack of new technology at the State Department. Hillary liked the idea, but Cheryl Mills responded that this could open up a whole new set of problems if the hacking community were aware of the situation at State, and further admitted that she was one of several State employees who had been hacked.

In July. a civil uprising transformed into a full blown Civil War in Syria, which killed at least 300,000 people. Syria would become yet another tragic story of actual human death and sorrow that could have been avoided, had the U.S. State department and the Obama administration spent less time trying to sell billions of dollars in weapons to fund endless wars across the globe, and more time making peace with world leaders, listening to their stories, and providing actual assistance. Terrorism is a truly horrible outcome to some of the worst foreign policy the world has ever seen. Many people in the blogosphere, in 2011, were furious at Obama and Clinton’s constant regime changes in the middle East, and wanted Obama’s 2009 Nobel Peace Prize revoked.

While Obama was playing golf in Martha’s Vineyard, he and a portion of the East coast felt a 5.8 magnitude Earthquake that hit Virginia. Meanwhile, the Libyan government was being overthrown by newly-armed (and CIA backed) rebels. Crisis quickly followed. Setting her war-hawk sights on Libyan interests proved to be a horrible disaster for Secretary Clinton, and anyone in the Arab world (the mass majority of Muslims) that was not a fundamentalist asshole. A vacuum of power created by the Libyan overthrow, made for a perfect recipe of the rise of militant Islamic extremism in the region.

In debates over use of military force, Hillary was generally one of the more hawkish voices in the administration, and hailed the ongoing multinational military intervention in Libya and the initial U.S. response towards the Syrian Civil War as examples of smart power in action. During the Syrian Civil War, Clinton and the Obama administration initially sought to persuade Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to engage popular demonstrations with reform, then as government violence rose in August 2011, called for him to relinquish power while assisting rebels opposed to the Assad government.

The AP reported that in the early morning hours of Aug. 3, 2011, Clinton received infected emails, disguised as speeding tickets from New York. The emails instructed recipients to print the attached tickets. Opening an attachment would have allowed hackers to take over control of a victim’s computer. A blistering audit released by the State Department’s inspector general concluded that Clinton and her team ignored clear internal guidance that her email setup broke federal standards and could leave sensitive material vulnerable to hackers. Her aides twice brushed aside concerns, in one case telling technical staff “the matter was not to be discussed further,” the report said. The State Department has released more than 52,000 pages of Clinton’s work-related emails, including some that have since been classified. Clinton has withheld thousands of additional emails, saying they were personal. The emails released were not made available until after the inspector general’s office published its report, and Judicial Watch asked a federal judge to force the State Department to turn them over.

Many employees at the Clinton Foundation left in 2011, because of Chelsea Clinton’s new roles in the pay-to-play empire. Many of the staff were upset because of her personality, and simply could not come to terms with working along side her. Page Six detailed some of the names of employees who left and pointed out that “Instead of being something Hillary can point to with pride, the foundation has become a bloated slush fund that some critics say deserves an official investigation. And Chelsea’s fingerprints are all over it.”

In October, Hillary wrote a 5,600-word cover story for Foreign Policy announcing America’s “pivot” to Asia. In the same month. she visited Hong Kong and championed the TPP. Indeed, she was one of the loudest proponents of the grisly “trade deal.” Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders blasted President Obama and the State Department for allowing unfettered free trade to Korea, Columbia and Panama, over the fact that the disastrous trade policies were an overruling influence in the ever-widening gap between the rich and the poor. His ability to predict the future was shocking when he slammed Panama for becoming an ultra-wealthy tax haven, due to the dangerous trade deals. Years later, the Panama Papers would prove his point, and highlight the major motivating factor behind Sec. Clinton’s lauding of the Obama administrations passing of the Panama-U.S. Trade Promotion Agreement (TPA) In classic out-in-the-open double entendre meant to subdue the sheep and make the wolves chuckle, she said of the agreement that it would: “deepen our economic engagement throughout the world.”

Dec. 15, 2011 After nearly nine years of war, the loss of more than 100,000 lives and hundreds of billions of dollars spent, the U.S. military mission in Iraq formally ended. Protests in Iraq ended with instability and civil war. All told, many billions of dollars in bombs were built, paid for, and dropped and many new extremists grew up without fathers, brothers, mothers, sisters and a very intense hatred of the US.

During the roughly two years of Arab Spring protests that confronted authoritarian governments with popular uprisings, Clinton’s State Department approved $66 million worth of so-called Category 14 exports — defined as “toxicological agents, including chemical agents, biological agents and associated equipment” — to nine Middle Eastern governments that either donated to the Clinton Foundation or whose affiliated groups paid Bill Clinton speaking fees. The increase in chemical, biological and related exports to Clinton Foundation donors was part of a larger jump in overall arms sales authorized by Hillary Clinton’s State Department to foreign governments that gave her family’s foundation at least $54 million, according to a previous IBTimes analysis.

The US is among the few nations left that have to-date, not banned the use of cluster munitions, while using the argument that they are cost effective. Secretary Clinton has never pushed Obama into joining the world in banning their use, in favor of her “Smart Power”  “More than 98% of known cluster bomb victims are civilians and 40% are children, who are drawn to the small, toy-like metal objects.”

April 2009, Mutassim Gaddafi met U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in a serious display of his new responsibilities as the National Security Advisor. The fourth son of the Libyan leader expressed a strong need for military support in Libya. Gaddafi warned, “There are 60 million Algerians to the West, 80 million Egyptians to the East, we have Europe in front of us, and we face Sub-Saharan Africa with its problems to the South.” He was concerned about upgrading Libya’s military equipment, and said he could purchase arms from Russia and China, but wanted to buy material from the United States. Mutassim Gaddafi was captured when Sirte fell on 20 October 2011. NTC commanders at the front in Sirte and officials in Tripoli claimed that he was captured as he was trying to leave the city in a family car, and sent off to Benghazi.

Published film and photographs (archive) of Mutassim Gaddafi indicate that he was injured, but very much alive when he was captured by a group of young men appearing to be in their late teens or early twenties after apparently succumbing to nerve gas. He was made to drink water and requested a cigarette. Later photographs released by Saudi TV channel Al Arabiya show Mutassim Gaddafi lying dead on a hospital bed, with a gaping wounds in his throat and abdomen and one of his arms had been dislocated. Amateur photographs and videos showed his young captors and others defiling his corpse after his death.  Like his father, he was denied a burial within a day after death in accordance with Islamic law due to being an international war criminal.

Bill Clinton raised $13,410,000 in speaking fees for the year. The Clinton Foundation took in an unknown number of $ millions for the year, but the actual amounts would be unveiled in pieces through multiple hacks and whistle blowers.

 

2012

In 2012, a firm with an ownership stake in the company that manufactured the tear gas reportedly used by Egyptian security forces against the uprising paid $100,000 to $250,000 for another Bill Clinton speech.

In reference to intervention through the OAS to change the first round of Haitian election results, the Chief Operating Officer of the Clinton Foundation, Laura Graham, wrote to Bill Clinton, “The situation cannot afford Washington to sit on sidelines. They elected him and they need [sic] pressure him. He can’t go unchecked.” Graham was referring to the increasingly erratic, and potentially dangerous, behavior of Haitian president Michel Martelly, who was illegally elected through US and OAS vote changing. The e-mail,  one of many Graham sent to Bill Clinton’s deputy chief of staff on February 26, 2012, eventually was sent to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her top aide, Cheryl Mills. The note is clear evidence that key officials, even within the Clinton camp, viewed the US intervention in the 2010 Haitian election as decisive.

Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh signed the GCC power-transfer deal in which a presidential election was held, resulting in his successor Abd al-Rab Mansur al-Hadi formally replacing him as the president of Yemen on 27 February 2012, in exchange for immunity from prosecution.

In March, David Crane, the chief executive of NRG, an energy company, led a widely publicized trip with Mr. Clinton to Haiti, where they toured green energy and solar power projects that NRG finances through a $1 million commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative.

Clinton’s State Department assailed Morocco as a corrupt state guilty of “arbitrary arrests and corruption in all branches of government.” Women in Morocco are still subjugated by Islamic rule, yet in September, Hillary Clinton’s public stance on the government had changed, most likely due to cash from weapons deals. “A vital hub for economic and cultural exchange,” she called it, one that was “in the midst of dramatic changes.” $1 million was given to the Clinton Foundation from a major phosphate company owned by the Moroccan government.

As reported by the International Business Times , while serving as secretary of state, Clinton was lobbied by human rights groups and union leaders to address the Colombian government’s abuse of striking oil workers, some of whom had been threatened at gunpoint by the military. Meanwhile, the oil company in question, Pacific Rubiales, was promising millions to the Clinton Foundation. Hillary’s State Department wound up publicly hailing Colombia’s commitment to human rights reform, and that statement allowed the United States to continue funding the Colombian military. Today, the founder of Pacific Rubiales is a board member of the Clinton Foundation.

During mid-2012, Clinton formed a plan with CIA Director David Petraeus to further strengthen opposition by arming and training Syrian rebels, but the proposal was rejected by the White House, who were reluctant to become entangled in the conflict and who feared that extremists hidden among the rebels might turn the weapons against other targets. Years later, evidence of US backed rebels would fuel the argument that Hillary’s State Department was instrumental in initiating the rage associated with the uprising of the Islamic State.

A cache of emails that the State Department released to the activist group Citizens United, showed an invitation to Mr. Clinton to speak at a United States-China energy summit meeting in 2012 organized by Luca International Group, which was later fined $68 million by the Securities and Exchange Commission for defrauding investors.

Another email sought approval for Mr. Clinton to accept a $650,000 fee for speaking at a Forbes Emerging Markets conference in Brazzaville, Congo, in 2012. “This did not clear our internal vet, but WJC wants to know what state thinks of it if he took it 100% for the foundation,” Amitabh Desai, the foundation’s director of foreign policy wrote, referring to the former president by his initials.

Presidents and cabinet secretaries from both parties have long rewarded friends and contributors with high-level appointments. But the extent to which the Clintons rewarded donors with political and corporate favors seems extreme in comparison. In the coming years, hundreds of links would emerge in the form of right-wing investigations and hacktivists that were fed up with pay-to-play becoming the new norm. The Washington Examiner reported: “The former secretary of state’s agency appointed 194 donors who had given either to her family’s foundation, her political campaigns, or both, or were affiliated with groups that had. Those donors represented nearly 40 percent of the 511 advisory appointments the State Department made during Clinton’s tenure.”

“Teneo is a consulting firm whose close ties to the Clintons have invited controversy since the start of the presidential campaign, particularly for the firm’s decision to hire Huma Abedin in June 2012. Abedin collected paychecks simultaneously from Teneo, the State Department and the Clinton Foundation. In July 2012, Miller reached out to Abedin to seek her advice on whether he should join Teneo, emails made public through the Freedom of Information Act show.”

Senate records showed that the Podesta Group lobbied the State Department on behalf of Uranium One. The Daily Caller noted that “Uranium One paid The Podesta Group $40,000 to lobby the State Department, the Senate, the National Park Service and the National Security Council for international mining projects, according to a July 20, 2012 filing.”

The Uranium One story started in 2005 when Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra and several business partners came to own a small mining company called UrAsia Energy. Bill Clinton flew with Giustra in September 2005 on a private jet to Kazakhstan. There, the mining tycoon negotiated with that nation’s mining agency, Kazataprom, for rights to three mines. After Clinton appeared publicly in support of Kazakhstan’s president, Nursultan Nazarbayev, who had just allegedly won an election with more than 90 percent of the vote, the mining deal was approved. Months later, Giustra donated $31 million to the Clinton Foundation with a pledge of $100 million more. In 2007, UrAsia Energy, with its access to Kazakhstan’s lucrative mines, merged with South Africa’s Uranium One in a $3.5 billion deal. Giustra sold his stake in the company soon after, pocketing a tidy profit. But other investors and executives with close ties to Giustra maintained their interests and donated millions more to the Clinton group.

Russia’s state-owned atomic agency, Rosatom, bought a 17% stake in Uranium One in June 2009. In order to own a majority stake in Uranium One, the Russian atomic agency would need approval from among others, Hillary’s State Department. Uranium One donated $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundation from 2005-2011, and in 2010 Bill was paid half a million dollars to speak to a Russian investment bank that had stock in Uranium One. By January 2013, a subsidiary of Rosatom took over 100% of the Uranium One stock, had it delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange, and the money donated to the Clinton Foundation for turning a blind eye to the dealings was not reported, despite Obama’s wishes when Hillary became Secretary of State. Through a series of transactions approved by Hillary Clinton’s State Department, Rosatom’s acquisition of Uranium One effectively gave Russia control of 20 percent of North American uranium.

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan went up against Barack Obama and Joe Biden, for the 2012 Presidential election cycle. By November, Obama was re-elected with 51% of the vote.

On September 11th: “Militants, firing guns and rocket-propelled grenades, attack the main compound, moving on multiple entrances at once. The main entrance is protected by three armed and four unarmed Libyan guards. No more than seven Americans are in the compound, including three civilians and four who have guns. Mr. Stevens is alone in the main building, according to guards interviewed later. The militants enter the compound, backed by truck-mounted artillery.”

Hillary said that she took full responsibility for the failure to protect the US diplomatic compound in Benghazi. “I take responsibility,” she said in an interview with CNN. “I want to avoid some kind of political gotcha.” She then argued for continued American engagement in the Middle East. Benghazi-Gate would haunt her political aspirations in the years to come, with bi-partisan rallying cries over her incompetence and laziness in the call of duty.

On December 19, a panel led by Thomas R. Pickering and Michael Mullen issued its report on the matter. It was sharply critical of State Department officials in Washington for ignoring requests for more guards and safety upgrades and for failing to adapt security procedures to a deteriorating security environment. It focused its criticism on the department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security and Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs; four State Department officials at the assistant secretary level and below were removed from their posts as a consequence. Clinton said she accepted the conclusions of the report and that changes were underway to implement its suggested recommendations. The former secretary of state was quick to blame the violence on protesters responding to an anti-Muslim video clip. Subsequent evidence has suggested the administration knew almost immediately that the raid was planned and executed by Islamic extremists, prompting former House Speaker John Boehner to form a select committee to investigate the response to the attack in 2014. Clinton sat for an 11-hour hearing before the select committee in October 2015 and denied knowingly spreading false talking points about the attack. However, emails revealed during the hearing suggest Clinton told her daughter, Chelsea, the Benghazi compound was overrun by terrorists before she ever addressed the public about the controversial YouTube clip.

“The former chief security officer for the American Embassy in Libya on Wednesday told a House committee investigating the fatal attack last month on a diplomatic compound in Benghazi that his request to extend the deployment of an American military team was thwarted by the State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security.” (New York Times)

An email between Huma and Hillary showed the two strategizing and timing the Libyan regime change, and also illustrates the extent to which information gathering could have saved the lives of those that died on Sept. 11, 2012 in Libya. This FOIA requested email serves as another grim reminder that Hillary’s State department’s regime change and destabilization came first, and the lives of brave Americans and innocent civilians came second.

The role of the CIA during the Benghazi fiasco was understated by the reporting of the tragic deaths of 4 Americans. The UK Telegraph, among very few other news agencies reported: “The CIA has been subjecting operatives to monthly polygraph tests in an attempt to suppress details of a reported US arms smuggling operation in Benghazi that was ongoing when its ambassador was killed by a mob in the city last year, according to reports.” To date, the CIA’s official role in Libya has been heavily under-reported.

The Accountability Review Board (ARB) and Congress convened to investigate State Dept. actions surrounding Benghazi, and called for Benghazi-related documents. Top Clinton aides Cheryl Mills and Jake Sullivan were allegedly present at a document sorting session in the basement of the State Dept., according to Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell, who later told the press that he had witnessed the operation. No law enforcement body contacted or interviewed Maxwell. In 2016, a very strong case was made by Reddit users, that Paul Combetta, the Platte River IT personnel who was hired by team Clinton, destroyed illegal Clinton server documents related to the Benghazi tragedy using BleachBit. This lead about the notorious 30,000 deleted emails that were never turned over to the FBI, came from diligent Reddit users, who archived what they suspected was the smoking gun, and later followed up with piecing together the timeline of events. This whole ordeal was covered by LVX-Media and very few other Alt-Media sites, most notable, the Daily Caller. As of October, 2016, no word has been released about the outcome of the damning piece of investigative journalism. Over the coming years, it would be brutally clear to those that were paying attention, that Google, Facebook, and the entire left side of main stream media was covering for Hillary. Indeed, the proof was all over the pre-election day releases of John Podesta’s hacked emails. Meanwhile, the MSM would supply a very dangerous Russian-hack narrative, that would ensure disunity between the 2 superpowers. This all just goes to show how far campaign donations can go, in terms of the destabilization of Western Democracy.

On November 7, Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information (FOI) Act request with the State Department for Benghazi-related emails and other information. In the same month, Hillary Clinton visited Australia and made what would become her defining statement on TPP: That it was “the gold standard in trade agreements.” Since then, the Podesta emails would show that she was only giving lip service to her 2016 campaign denial of her support for the TPP, as seen in the first batch that contained excerpts of her million dollar speeches to Wall Street.

By December, although the previous FOIA response was due (30 day time frame,) no documents were provided to JW.  Hillary was hospitalized for a few days because of a blood clot in her right transverse venous sinus. This was the result of a concussion sustained 3 weeks earlier, mixed with sever dehydration from a viral intestinal ailment. “Among the events she missed because of the injury was a Congressional hearing for the September attack on the United States Mission in Benghazi, Libya.” Bill Clinton would later say that her injury “required six months of very serious work to get over.”

Judicial Watch filed another FOIA request into Clintons illegal private server in mid-December.

On December 19, a panel led by Thomas R. Pickering and Michael Mullen issued its report on the Benghazi matter. It was sharply critical of State Department officials in Washington for ignoring requests for more guards and safety upgrades and for failing to adapt security procedures to a deteriorating security environment. It focused its criticism on the department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security and Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs; four State Department officials at the assistant secretary level and below were removed from their posts as a consequence. Clinton said she accepted the conclusions of the report and that changes were underway to implement its suggested recommendations. In other words, Hillary got off with a slap on the wrist, while others lives were ruined and the actual facts of the case and tragedies suffered got swept under the rug.

Following the 2012 re-election, Obama nominated Senator John Kerry to be Clinton’s successor.

Bill Clinton raised $16,325,000 in speaking fees in 2012. Hillary would embark on her tour de force of paid public speaking that would dwarf her husbands, and solidify bonds between Clinton status quo politics and Big Oil, Wall Street, Tech and Surveillance firms, fracking, and private prisons.

 

2013-foundatin-budget

2013

10 days after Barack Obama attended his 2nd Inauguration, Hillary Clinton left the State Department and was replaced with “7th Floor” man, John Kerry. Just over a week before she left the State Department, Hillary testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about the Benghazi attack. While simultaneously defending her response to the incident and  accepting formal responsibility, said claimed no direct role in specific discussions beforehand regarding consulate security. In 2016, Wikileaks releases would later make Swiss cheese out of this line of Clintonian rhetoric. A distraction was put in place in the media that a youtube video had caused a sensation in the area, and that it further blossomed into a full-scale violent situation. This spin by team Clinton, and also revealed in the Wikileaks Podesta emails to actually be a fabrication, not only purposely discounted the very real threat of Islamic extremism, but ruined the life of the the slandered youtuber. According to the Daily Caller: “Clinton also sent an e-mail on the night of the attacks to her daughter Chelsea telling her that attacks were done by an “Al Qaeda-like group.” The e-mail did not reference the YouTube video.”

This planted media story of a video causing the deaths of 4 Americans in Libya, was possibly designed to coincide with her 2016 election hopes, and her long-term goal of open borders. This all coincides with a pattern of regime change in Arabic countries by team Hillary, destabilization that leads to US-backed rebel groups, mass slaughter and human rights violations, and mass exodus of Muslims into Europe and the rest of the world. Most of the Muslims are very good people who just wish for health and safety while escaping terror back home. The problem is that there is growing evidence that the US and NATO countries could be purposely designing the terror that exists in those countries with horribly inaccurate drone attacks that kill civilians, the funding and arming of rebel groups that are basically paid psychopaths and the complicit trade of dangerous myriad forms of modern weaponry that do nothing but help the big banks bottom line. What the US, and mostly Europe, is left with is imported extremist Islam back home that conveniently gets downplayed by a narrative of acceptance of said immigrants, media diversion from the terroristic acts perpetrated by these Muslim outliers and a constant argument by liberals that it is guns that are the problem. So, the Benghazi hearings might not have gone well for the Republican oversight committees, but Wikileaks and several other non-main stream sources would later supply the missing pieces to the question of why. Of course, the Liberal narrative would be that this was yet another string of conspiracy theories.

I Survived

 

When questioned about Hillary’s State Department’s inaccurate talking points after the Benghazi attack, Clinton responded with the much-quoted rejoinder, “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.” In November 2014, the House Intelligence Committee issued a report that concluded there had been no wrongdoing in the administration’s response to the attack.

When Clinton left the State Department she became a private citizen for the first time in thirty years. Almost the entire time she was Secretary of State, and with strict order from Obama not to receive funds from foreign donors, work for any of the Clinton “charities” or have any connection to any source of money that would influence her decisions on matters of the State, Clinton received soft money from various nations and suspect personalities, and made contacts and deals with lucrative people that would later help her 2016 election campaign, at the complete disregard of the 99% of the people she would claim to represent. One by one, the Podesta Emails released in 2016 would unravel this complex system of quid pro quo, media collusion, arms dealings and favors to known human rights abusers.

A prominent charity watchdog removed the foundation from its registry, and the Foundation was later forced to refile its tax returns after reporters discovered major donations had been omitted. Critics have accused the Clintons of using their philanthropic network to benefit themselves politically and financially, to the surprise of almost no one.

Once she was free from the State Department and Obama’s mandate for “transparency.” she quickly hit the speaking circuit with her husband, raking in six-figure sums for each appearance, crisscrossing the country for events with special interests groups and Wall Street firms. In 2013, Lafarge’s Executive Vice President for Operations, Eric Olson, was a featured attendee at the Clinton Global Initiative’s annual meeting.

Although the Clinton Foundation likes to claim on it’s website that Coachella Valley, CA is home to one of it’s locations for the Clinton Health Matters Initiative, there is actually no office to speak of. There are, however, well paid members of the invisible office, an intake of charity and a barrage of claims about humanitarian efforts. There are also over a hundred lush golf courses that Bill likes to play around in, while the majority of actual residents are destitute migrant workers that have not received a dime from the non-existent office. So, an accurate translation of “the Clinton Health Matters Initiative held a meeting of community leaders in the Coachella Valley to determine key actions necessary to reduce health disparities in the region …” would be – Bill Clinton played golf with his buddies and they talked about various things. Amy Sterling did some superb research that uncovered even more Clinton Foundation fluff activities that were simply money laundering schemes such as a job training school in Cartagena, Columbia that is going out of business and cataract surgery volunteers who would be awfully surprised to learn that Clinton Health Access Initiative is paying for them to do more cataract surgeries a year than there are people needing such surgery in Peru. Some other proof of Foundation fraud was noted by Western News Daily, in which Ranbaxy, a Clinton Global Health Partner, distributed useless drugs to Rawandan HIV/AIDS sufferers.

On March 22nd, Guccifer hacked Sidney Blumenthal’s emails, and gained access to Hillary’s messages too. He noticed a strange thing about her email address; It was not a State.Gov address. This showed that Clinton had sent and received sensitive, confidential information, to and from a non-State Department employee. All of these transmissions and more were later to be revealed to have taken place and stored on an illegal, private server.

By December 2013, ARMZ Uranium Holding Co was extinguished by Rosatom, making Uranium One a direct subsidiary of Rosatom. A 4,000-word front page story by Mike McIntire and Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Jo Becker verified the Clinton Cash uranium revelation in stunning detail, including charts and graphs laying out the flow of millions of dollars from the nine investors in the uranium deal who flowed $145 million to Hillary’s family foundation. Frank Giustra, Canadian mining magnate gave $31.3 million and a pledge for $100 million to the Clinton Foundation. Frank Holmes, a shareholder and Clinton Foundation adviser, donated between $250,000 and $500,000. Neil Woodyer, Frank Giustra’s colleague, pledged $500,000 as well as promises of “ongoing financial support.” Robert Disbrow, a Haywood Securities broker, gave between $1 and $5 million. Paul Reynolds, a Canaccord Capital Inc. executive donated between $1 million and $5 million. Robert Cross, a major shareholder who serves as UrAsia Energy Director, pledged portions of his future income to the Clinton Foundation. Sergei Kurzin, pledged $1 million, and last but not least, Uranium One chairman Ian Telfer committed $2.35 million. In addition to the $145 million being funneled to the Clinton Foundation before the CFIUS approval, a Kremlin-backed bank bankrolled a $500,000 speech in Moscow for Bill Clinton while his wife led the Russian reset.

In 2013, Bill Clinton made $450,000 in speaking fees.
In 2013, Hillary Clinton made $9,455,000 in speaking fees.

2014

By 2014, Hillary Clinton had fully reversed herself on the Iraq War Resolution, saying that she “got it wrong” and the vote in support had been a “mistake.” Other think tank priority topics started to get public airtime around Hillary, as she started a mostly failed campaign of public reversal over privately held viewpoints. In the time following her completion of a remarkably failed State Department run, she began building up an imaginary bubble of herself as a defender of feminism, the middle class and political correctness. The corporate, main stream media colluded with this image, and Obama’s policies of regime change, destruction of the middle class and worldwide surveillance started to become obvious to even Democrats, and a shift in the roles of the main parties started to appear. A noticeable portion of the Tea Party Conservative movement started to realize how out-dated it’s ideologies had become and started to make headway with the younger crowd, who had become fed up with politics as usual. A more moderate tone started to emerge on the right, that was more concerned with ending corruption, and less concerned with hard-right Baptist ideals. On the other side of the aisle, the Occupy Wall Street crowd started to become insanely defiant. Truth would come out in 2016 about paid agitators inside the Occupy camps. A ridiculous zealousness and unforgiving tone started to damage the voice of a once great protest movement. How far agitators like Aaron Black, aka Aaron Minter, went in influencing the hard left’s opinions is still yet to be seen as of the time of this writing. The propagandist side of the left took to new extremes in the years leading up to the election. So much so, that third parties started to gain new ground, in an attempt to end the increasingly bitter dichotomy and corruption. Major news outlets became watered down toilets of misinformation, with absolutely no regard for standards. Behind the scenes, the Democrats planned and plotted to keep the Obama machine rolling past his presidency. The goal: Throw giant sums of money and power at a right-leaning, publicly pro-middle class candidate that could be controlled with donations. Her name was Hillary Rodham Clinton, and she was the absolute pinnacle of U.S. corruption.

Hillary’s speaking circuit was usually complete with a minimum $300,000 price tag per speech that included travel by private jet “a $39 million Gulfstream G450 or better” and overnight stay in presidential suites. Her standard agreement required her presence for only 90 minutes, and 50 photos with 100 attendees. The fact that any American is dumb enough to believe that she is for the working class is mind-boggling, and only speaks to the deteriorating value of U.S. public school systems, and the ultra-liberal indoctrination of colleges.

The House Select Committee on Benghazi was created in May 2014, to investigate any wrongdoing surrounding the September 11, 2012 incident. In an attempt to shift blame away from Obama and Hillary, liberal rags like the New York Times and many others started to blame the tragedy on a Republican Congress that didn’t issue enough funding to the region. I’m fairly certain that the CIA spooks trading arms to rebels and fueling the tensions would disagree, if they were allowed to talk. Despite Barbara Boxers claims about Congressional funding, the Washington Post fact checkers had a different view: “State Department officials repeatedly told Congress that a lack of funds was not an issue. Instead, security was hampered because of bureaucratic issues and management failures.”  In her testimony, Hillary also used this excuse of a lack of funding, “despite the security professionals she says she relied on very clearly rejecting that excuse.”

More than 25 times in her testimony, Hillary said some form of “I was not responsible for specific security requests and decisions.” The deflection of blame would cost her tens of thousands of voters from each party. Instead of just admitting failure, she cast everyone else as the problem, even though she sat at the top of the blame tree as Secretary of State. “We knew what [Chris Stevens] was asking for,” Clinton said. “Those requests went to the security professionals.” Clinton couched her blame in praise — “99 percent of the time they get it right” — but nonetheless took no responsibility for the role that inadequate security played in the terror attack.

Contrary to The New York Times’ inaccurate conclusion the attack “was fueled in large part by” the youtube video, State Department officials from Washington to Libya knew the truth from the beginning. As the Committee’s final report made clear, “None of the information coming directly from the agents on the ground in Benghazi during the attacks mentioned anything about a video or a protest” (p. II-25). The Deputy Chief of Mission in Libya testified that “[t]he Youtube video was a nonevent in Libya.”

Perjury is the word that comes to mind when Secretary Clinton told the House Oversight Committee that she had turned over all emails related to Benghazi. In the 2 years that followed, in the entire world of folks that were paying attention, undeniable proof would come out that she lied to the committee and had the relevant emails deleted. Meanwhile, the attention shifted from Benghazi to the fact that she was using an unauthorized private server that was sending and receiving State Department knowledge with a rainbow of different classification colors. Paul Combetta, of Platte River, was caught on Reddit asking exactly how to delete certain information relating to the whole mess.

Jeffrey Thompson pled guilty to two conspiracy charges tied to allegations that he secretly funneled more than $3.3 million in illegal donations to political candidates and their campaigns, including Hillary Rodham Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign and the 2010 election of Washington’s mayor.

In June, the State Department provided the House Benghazi Committee with emails that finally showed her use of a private email account. For the next five months, Judicial Watch issued FOIA requests and lawsuits relating to the, now infamous, emails from Hillary’s private server. On November 26, Obama updated the Federal Records Act to require public officials to forward all work-related emails to their government address. By early December, 30,490 of Hillary’s “work related” emails were turned over to the State Department, which the media would allege was all of them. This would later be proven to be false, via FBI Director James Comey’s statement, Wikileaks Podesta emails and several other sources. This coincided with the time that Clinton staffers ordered a 3rd party to destroy the private emails that Hillary said were about Yoga and Chelsea.

A much more comprehensive, public picture started to emerge for Hillary Clinton. In 2014, the papers of Hillary’s late friend Diane Blair were made public; in them, Blair wrote that Hillary dismissed Monica Lewinksy, then a 22-year-old White House intern, as a “narcissistic loony-toon” and insisted that Bill had not abused his power. As for Bill’s other women “including Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey, who alleged sexual harassment, and Juanita Broaddrick, who accused him of rape” the Clintons often embarked on a “nuts and sluts” campaign, denigrating the accusers. According to Carl Bernstein’s “A Woman in Charge,” Hillary called Bill’s longtime mistress Gennifer Flowers “trailer trash”; she also encouraged his team to get signed statements from all of Bill’s other women, swearing they’d never had sex with him. Willey later said that Hillary spearheaded a “terror campaign” against her. “She is the war on women, as far as I’m concerned,” Willey said.

In 2014, Hillary Clinton made $11,412,000 in speaking fees. Bill Clinton made about $16,534,000 in speaking fees for the year.

2016-10-22-braverman-1

2015

In January, Eric Braverman stepped down from the CEO position at the Clinton Foundation. This was after he caused many waves among the seasoned staffers who knew fully well all the nefarious dealings with foreign donors and the complex pay-to-play web. Mr. Braverman was a real threat to the inner workings of the Foundation, and to Doug Band and Ira Magaziner in particular. His decision to step down is as secretive as his rumored decision to ask for Russian asylum. The hiring of Braverman was seen as validation of Chelsea Clinton’s view that the foundation needed to address recommendations from a 2011 audit for tighter governance and budgeting, as well as more comprehensive policies to vet donors and avoid conflicts of interest. Braverman moved quickly to adopt the auditor’s recommendations and much more He diversified the foundation’s board beyond the Clintons and their longtime political allies and restructured its finance department. He oversaw the creation of a $250 million endowment and implemented data-driven analytics to measure the effectiveness of foundation programs. No public explanation was offered for Braverman’s resignation, and as of election day 2016, his whereabouts remain unknown. An email published by Wikileaks spoke to the conspiracy, in which Neera Tanden wrote: “I’m hoping someone is keeping tabs on Doug Band. Quote in here is from someone who worked in Clinton Foundation.” John Podesta replied, “Eric Braverman.”

After almost a month-long break, Hillary hit the speech circuit again, publicly flip-flopping on her Keystone Pipeline support, to the cheers of Greens nationwide. This would later be undermined by the 2016 Wikileaks dump of John Podesta’s emails, in which the actual speeches were released. In those revealed and very protected speeches, the world was finally allowed to see the public versus the private side of Hillary. Many already knew all of this, but the undeniable proof was finally released into the wilds of the internet. So, despite what the most naive of her adoring fans believed in 2015, there were two very different faces to Hillary Clinton; One that lies publicly and pretends to be some Progressive harbinger of good will and equality, and one that makes secret deals with Wall Street, bends to the will of the 1% World Elite, and accepts money from anyone regardless of criminal ties. For the fifteen months ending in March 2015, Clinton earned over $11 million from her speeches.

A March 2, 2015, discussion between Mrs. Clinton’s top advisers revealed John Podesta’s desires regarding the incoming email fiasco: “On another matter….and not to sound like Lanny, but we are going to have to dump all those emails so better to do so sooner than later.” Podesta’s reference to “Lanny” was a reference to Lanny Davis, a well-known lawyer who served as former President Bill Clinton’s special counsel. A congressional subpoena for the former secretary of state’s emails was issued March 4, 2015. Although the email investigation was the least of Hillary’s worries, her use of private messaging system software and a private server violated State Department protocols and procedures, and federal laws and regulations governing record keeping requirements.

Reuters reported that the Clinton Foundation had broken its promise to publish all of its donors, as well as its promise to let the State Department review all of its donations from foreign governments.  Amazingly, even with the investigations into an illegal email server, the Clinton Foundation and decades of scandal, her loyal base chose to focus on the fact that a woman was running for president. As of 2015, she was estimated to be worth over $30 million on her own, or $45-53 million with her husband. Clinton resigned from the foundation’s board in April 2015, when she began her presidential campaign, and the foundation said it would accept new foreign governmental donations from six Western nations only.

On April 12, 2015, Clinton formally announced her candidacy for the presidency in the 2016 election. She had a campaign-in-waiting already in place, including a large donor network, experienced operatives, and the Ready for Hillary and Priorities USA Action political action committees, and other infrastructure.

Initially considered a prohibitive favorite to win the Democratic nomination, Clinton faced an unexpectedly strong challenge from self-professed democratic socialist Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, whose longtime stance against the influence of corporations and the wealthy in American politics resonated with a dissatisfied citizenry troubled by the effects of income inequality in the U.S. and has contrasted with Clinton’s Wall Street ties.

96 percent Of Hillary’s charitable donations In 2015 went to Clinton Foundation. That is a separate entity from the more well-known Clinton Foundation. Nevertheless, the Clintons still controlled the money that flowed into and out of the charity. Another foreign donor’s activities piqued the interest of the FBI. A bank informed the bureau of a Clinton Foundation donor’s “suspicious activity.” The FBI and three Justice Department field offices thought that the lead warranted an investigation into the Clinton Foundation. But the DOJ’s public integrity unit declined to open up a formal probe.

By mid-2015, multiple FBI investigations into the Clinton Foundation were underway. Unlike the highly publicized email investigation, led by Clinton lap-dog, James Comey, one investigation centered on the New York City Clinton Foundation main offices. In a major departure from the centralized FBI investigations, prosecutorial support would come from various U.S. Attorneys Offices and would be led by Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. Bharara’s prosecutorial aggressiveness has resulted in a large number of convictions of banks, hedge funds and Wall Street insiders.

The Daily Caller’s Richard Pollack wrote that Bharara’s biography notes that he “has applied renewed focus on large-scale, sophisticated financial frauds by creating two new units – the Complex Frauds Unit and the complementary Civil Frauds Unit.” However, another Daily Caller article revealed that Bharara was vetted as Obama’s Attorney General pick to replace the corrupt Eric Holder. Bharara was the investigator that landed Danesh D’Souza in jail, and has a track record of going after Republicans for the same crimes that Democrats committed on a much larger scale.

Dan Agrams of Law Newz wrote: “CNN Justice Correspondent Pamela Brown reported that a bank notified the FBI about suspicious activity linked to a Clinton Foundation donor during Hillary Clinton’s time as U.S. Secretary of State. The Bureau wanted to look deeper, but Justice Department officials said there shouldn’t be an investigation.”

A separate investigation was approved which focused on Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who was a member of the Clinton Foundation’s board of directors for most if its existence.

Hillary Clinton’s decision to set up a private server at her Chappaqua home has dogged her presidential campaign since before it even began. The former secretary of state said she established the personal email network for the convenience of carrying one device and failed to address the discovery that she carried at least two different devices throughout her tenure. In June 2015, a federal judge ordered the State Department to release all 30,000 of Clinton’s emails on a rolling basis at the end of each month until January 2016. More than 2,000 of those emails were deemed classified. In July of 2016, FBI Director James Comey released a statement that went against every single talking point from the Clinton playbook, while still not recommending further legal action.

In a joint statement released on July 15, 2015, the inspector general of the State Department and the inspector general of the intelligence community said that through their review of the emails, they found information that was classified when sent, remained so as of their inspection, and “never should have been transmitted via an unclassified personal system. They also stated unequivocally that those secrets never should have been stored outside of secure government computer systems. Clinton had said over a period of months that she kept no classified information on the private server that she set up in her house.

In July 2015 Kathleen Willey launched the website A Scandal A Day as a “safe place” for people wronged by the Clintons to come forward.

In August 2015, the FBI seized her private server from a warehouse in New Jersey and began looking into allegations that Clinton mishandled sensitive intelligence.

United States Department of State issued a subpoena to the foundation in the fall of 2015. According to the report, the subpoena focused on “documents about the charity’s projects that may have required approval from federal government during Hillary Clinton’s term as secretary of state” and “also asked for records related to Huma Abedin, longtime Clinton aide who for six months in 2012 was employed simultaneously by the State Department, the foundation, Clinton’s personal office, and a private consulting firm with ties to the Clintons.

On October 22, 2015, Clinton testified at an all-day and nighttime session before the committee. The hearing included many heated exchanges between committee members and Clinton, and between the committee members themselves. Clinton was widely seen as emerging largely unscathed from the hearing, because of what the media perceived as a calm and unfazed demeanor, and a lengthy, meandering, repetitive line of questioning from the committee. The committee issued competing final reports in June 2016 that broke along partisan lines, with the Republican report offering some new details about the attack but no new evidence of culpability by Clinton.

In 2015, The Clintons made $6,725,000 in speaking fees. At least that is what they reported on their tax return. This certainly does not fit the pattern, and the number is most likely at least double that.

hillary-cartoon

While Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders were busy rallying for the working class vote in January, a federal judge quietly dismissed a case against the Clinton Foundation. Klayman v. Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation (15-cv-80388 S.D. Fla) was shot down by Bill Clinton’s own federally appointed judge. The case involved the racketeering, influenced and corrupt organizations, or RICO act, and would have given the nomination to Sanders, had it continued. The case was based on the Clintons’ acceptance of money from foreign and other donors in exchange for favors while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. A charge which would later be proven by the John Podesta Wikileaks emails. Klayman never got to depose them, another Clinton-appointed judge blocked it.

Bernie Sanders showed early on that his grassroots campaign of Democratic Socialism was a threat to Clinton’s neoliberal, bank friendly, 90’s politics and demagoguery. The month of January saw Sanders with a $5 million lead over Clinton, the bulk of his being average contributions of $27, as opposed to Clinton’s over half a million fewer donors who were already maxed out at the $2,700 limit. In her favor, she had given an additional $5 million to the Democratic National Committee, which Sanders did not. Although the image that shined through the veil of widespread DNC corruption and marginalizing Sanders as a viable candidate sort of detracts from the humble gift for down ballot candidates.

In a  February 4th Democratic debate with Bernie Sanders, Clinton said, “I never sent or received any classified material, they are retroactively classifying it.” Sanders put the pressure on Hillary early on to release the transcripts from her speeches to Goldman Sachs and other financial titans after she began running on a platform to rein in the same institutions that had paid her millions of dollars directly. Many of those speeches were later released by Wikileaks.

The Flint lead contamination scandal began to develop, with almost no reference from the Sanders team about the Clinton Foundation’s direct ties to the failed Michigan leadership. “I was so angry. I was outraged and I know you must feel exactly the same,” Clinton said of the Flint contamination in early February, calling the contamination with lead and governmental culpability “immoral.”She added, “Repairing trust is as important as repairing pipes.” Unfortunately for that narrative, The Foundation and CGI were both receiving donations from the the top executive that faced multiple lawsuits for the poisoning of the Flint water. Pete Wentz, The Daily Caller explained, is the executive director of APCO Worldwide’s Chicago branch.

By March 1 (“Super Tuesday”), Clinton won seven of eleven contests, and opened up a significant lead in pledged delegates over Sanders. On March 2, 2015, the New York Times reported that Clinton exclusively used a private email account to conduct government business while secretary of state during Obama’s first term in office. The Associated Press followed with a report that Clinton’s email account was hosted on a private server at her home in New York. Guccifer’s hack of Sidney Blumenthal’s email led to the knowledge of Hillary’s illegal, private server, and the news coverage sparked an FBI investigation into the handling of classified material. The investigation was headed by James Comey, who previously wiped the Clinton’s 90’s scandals away with a big refusal to indict. He was also instrumental in clearing the 1990’s Whitewater investigation, Pardongate and Sandy Berger stealing damning evidence from the national archives to protect the Clintons. In May, an Inspector General’s report on the matter concluded that Hillary’s claims that the private server was allowed by US policy and cyber security professionals was false. The IG report said Clinton should have turned over her emails before she left office in accordance with the Federal Records Act, not 21 months after she left.

Sanders continued to do better among younger, white liberal voters, and in states that held caucuses or where eligibility was open to independents. Clinton’s advantage covered a more diverse voter population, but usually only in states that held primaries or where eligibility was restricted to registered Democrats. By late Spring, it was clear that Superdelegates that pledged support to Clinton, often long before any mention of Sanders, were going to be the deciding factor in the Democratic primaries of 2016. Despite almost every poll showing a Sanders win against Republican nominee Donald Trump, Sander’s larger turnout and talking points, and unheard of low amount of Corporate and Banking donations, the DNC chose Clinton early on, and the Superdelegates responded accordingly. The path ahead for a Sanders nomination came down to California, which was called for Clinton by the Associated Press before the voting had begun.

In a slightly ridiculous, yet highly linked statistical study done by Stanford and Berkley, Hillary’s 2016 Nomination defied a 1 in 77 billion chance at happening. Many on the hard left were now disenfranchised and betrayed by what they viewed as a DNC selection process, suited to eliminating the chance of a Sanders Nomination. #DemExit and #NeverHillary became the trending tags, with large swaths of on-the-fence Independents and Democrats jumping on the #TrumpTrain. Later, his message of draining the swamp would resonate with the same hardcore anti-establishment Berners who feared a Hillary Clinton presidency as being 100% Neoliberal policy. bought by the banks and big government.

As Guccifer’s transfer to the United States sparked a public outcry that Hillary’s goons and Obama might have him killed, Guccifer 2.0 sprang out of nowhere with a steady supply of highly questionable leaks. Many of the leaks would later be attributed to the Russians, despite the content being backed up almost entirely by future Wikileaks revelations that were not found to be the result of Russian hacking into the DNC. It is much more likely that Seth Rich was the leaker, considering his murder was not a robbery, his intimate knowledge of DNC poll data and the fact that Julian Assange and Rich’s parents offered a reward for his murder. This may never be revealed, but the Russians-did-it narrative would continue to play the headlines, with the help of the usual DNC suspects, a perverted ex-NSA spook and Obama’s constant anti-Putin double-speak.

On June 23, John Ashe’s throat was crushed with a barbel while working out. He was scheduled to testify days later with Ng Lap Seng, who was accused of smuggling $4.5 million into the US. A major player in China, Ng was connected to Charlie Trie of Bill Clinton DNC scandal fame. The prosecutors would have linked Ashe to the Clinton bag man Ng. Ashe’s conveniently timed death cleared the Clintons of a lot of embarrassment.

On July 2, 2016, Clinton stated: “Let me repeat what I have repeated for many months now, I never received nor sent any material that was marked classified.” On July 5, 2016, the FBI concluded its investigation into Hillary’s private server. In a statement, FBI director James Comey spoke of e-mail chains that were determined to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received, including every level of classification. He also said it was possible Clinton was not “technically sophisticated” enough to understand what the three classified markings meant. The probe found that Clinton used her personal email extensively while outside the United States, both sending and receiving work-related emails in the territory of sophisticated adversaries. Comey stated that although Clinton was “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information”, the FBI was expressing to the Justice Department that “no charges are appropriate in this case.”

In one case, an entire paragraph was lifted from an NSA report that was classified Top Secret / Special Intelligence. The fact that the feds were tipped off about the illegal, private server that housed State secrets was from a bunch of leaked documents from Sidney Blumenthal, a man connected to Libyan arms deals  and who was not a State Department employee, should have been more of a driving force in the investigation. Who knows? Maybe it still is. It is odd that emails that were not turned over were later known to cover Benghazi era communications. Just ask Paul Combetta of Platte River. How Mr. Blumenthal got his hands on this information is the key question, and there’s no firm answer yet. The fact that he was able to take four separate highly classified NSA reports, none of which he was supposed to have any access to, and pass the details of them to Hillary Clinton via email only hours after NSA released them in Top Secret / Special Intelligence channels indicates something highly unusual, as well as illegal, was going on.

Shorty before Comey’s statement, Bill Clinton controversially met with Loretta Lynch on an airport tarmac. What was said can only be imagined, but the timing could not be more suspicious. On July 6, 2016, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch confirmed that the probe into Clinton’s use of private email servers while secretary of state will be closed without criminal charges.

Not long after Wikileaks published the infamous DNC leaks, a DNC data analyst was murdered. On July 10, DNC staffer Seth Rich was gunned down at 4am, while walking near his DC home. He was shot twice in the back, had bruises on his face hands and knees, and still had his watch, wallet and phone on him when found. He was in charge of voter expansion data and had something to do with a program that tapped into the nationwide database of registered voters.

Aside from a Republican lobbyist and the Metro Police both offering rewards for any information about Rich’s death, Wikileaks also offered a reward of $20,000. There has been no information leading to the capture of his killer, but the DNC did dedicate a bike rack to him. A prominent anti-Clinton author, Victor Thorn, was also murdered, only days apart from Seth Rich. He had previously told his brother that if he was ever found dead under mysterious circumstances, that it would not be a suicide, however it was portrayed.

A class action lawsuit was lobbed at the DNC, by Cliff Arnebeck, who also thought that Bernie Sanders was robbed of his legitimate nomination. In an interview, he discussed a long and strange history of his witnesses dying of strange circumstances, before having a chance to testify.

By campaign’s end, Clinton had won 2,219 pledged delegates to Sanders’ 1,832; with an estimated 594 super delegates compared to Sanders’ 47. Clinton was formally nominated at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on July 26, 2016, becoming the first woman to be nominated for president by a major U.S. political party. Her choice of vice presidential running mate, Senator Tim Kaine, was nominated by the Convention the following day. Her opponents in the general election were Republican Donald Trump, Libertarian Gary Johnson, and Jill Stein of the Green Party. In early July, Trump and Clinton became tied in major polls following the FBI’s conclusion of its investigation into her email controversy.

Online petitions multiplied in an attempt to stop the DNC’s publicly perceived tampering with the 2016 Democratic primaries. There were reports of registration purging, switching of party affiliations, vote flipping, rigged software and massive voter suppression through a denial of the Independent vote in many states. With Clinton campaign staffers getting caught on camera advocating, “Whatever you can get away with just do it,” it doesn’t come as a surprise that the Berners felt cheated. Wikileaks would later publish documents revealing the depth of the DNC’s tampering, including media collusion, planted stories and smear campaigns against Sanders. Super delegates were even offered jobs within the DNC for placing the intended vote.

 

An excellent DNC convention summary by TruthStream Media.

 

Hillary’s first press conference in 200 days ended in what appeared to be a mild seizure, followed by an overt misdirection about the quality of the Chai Tea at Starbuck’s.

The City of Paris struck a corporate partnership with French industrial giant, Lafarge, who was accused of secretly sponsoring the Islamic State for profit. Documents revealed that Lafarge paid taxes to the terror group to operate its cement plant in Syria, and even bought Isis oil for years. Just before Bill Clinton was elected president in 1992, Lafarge was fined $1.8 million by the EPA for pollution violations. Hillary left the board of Lafarge in spring, just after her husband won the Democrat nomination. A year later as president, Bill Clinton reduced Lafarge’s EPA fine to less than $600,000. Hillary’s connection to Lafarge goes back to the 1980s, when the firm was involved in facilitating CIA support for Saddam Hussein’s secret weapons program. Going forward into 2013, and Lafarge’s Executive VP of Operations, Eric Olson, was a featured attendee at the Clinton Global Initiative’s annual meeting. A regular donor to the Clinton Foundation, Lafarge again was listed as a donor in the first quarter of 2016.

Shawn Lucas served papers to the DNC on camera, which were intended for then head of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Shultz. Had the papers been received by the right person, one wonders what the effects would have been. The DNC named Lucas in a Motion to Dismiss on July 22, claiming, in large part, that Lucas did not serve the paperwork correctly. The person who can be seen receiving the papers on video footage of the service was not authorized to accept service of process, according to the DNC’s motion.

On August 1, 2016, Victor Thorn supposedly committed suicide on his birthday, despite warnings to his brother that he would never do such a thing. He was the author of a trilogy on nefarious dealings by both Clintons, and a writer for the alternative media website, The American Free Press. The cause was a gunshot wound to the head.  On August 2, 2016, Shawn Lucas supposedly committed suicide. He was the man who served a nationwide class-action suit for fraud to the DNC. The lawsuit was meant to be served to Debbie Wasserman Shultz, but was handed to the wrong person. How that is grounds for throwing the whole thing out, especially considering the Democratic Party’s future was on the line, just boggles the mind. The details of Shawn’s death may never be known, considering the only reporting on the matter was sensationalized and elevated Mr. Lucas to the false status of Attorney.

sanders-endorsement

 

An open letter to the President and Vice President from Attorney Cliff Arnebeck made suggestions that the primaries were purposely sabotaging Senator Bernie Sanders, in favor of Hillary Clinton, a viewpoint that was later backed up by dozens of leaked emails. The DNC emails supplied to Wikileaks illustrated this overwhelming bias against the presidential campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders, and how the DNC favored Hillary Clinton’s campaign. While the radical left and its giant media machine focused on Russian hackers that supposedly infiltrated the DNC instead of the actual content of said emails, the leaders of the DNC quietly ousted Debbie Wasserman Shultz, their chairperson. Similar to when a mob boss giving an underling more responsibility for “doing dirt” for the goodfellas, Hillary Clinton rewarded Debbie Wasserman Shultz with an honorary chair of the Clinton campaign’s “50 state program.” As the Bernie supporters protested the results of the DNC convention in Philadelphia, the DNC appointed Representative for Ohio, Marcia Fudge as temporary chairperson. She was quickly replaced by political commentator and ex-CNN stooge, Donna Brazil. When it was revealed in Wikileaks that Donna had been given CNN debate questions and communicated them to Jennifer Palmieri and others within the Hillary team, CNN decided to publicly sever all ties with her. It is interesting to note her fervor in accusing the Russians over the latest Wikileaks developments, and nearly every time she was asked about supplying debate questions, she reverted to this tired narrative. Indeed, inconsistencies about the Democrats started popping up everywhere in conservative social media spheres. There were viral topics such as the fact that while Huma Abedin was working for State Department, she was also employed by the Clinton Foundation, that Wal-Mart was actually listed as a charity for the Foundation and the Foundation’s pay-to-play, or quid pro quo behavior. It is interesting that as the public was becoming more and more aware of blatant illegal behavior  among the Dems, there seemed to be an obvious double standard for the rule of law, depending on which party you adhered to.  The media giants assumed that providing a false narrative would help conceal the corruption, but a significant portion of the masses began to wake up in 2016. Although Hillary assumed that if there was no indictment over Emailgate, it would be an easy shot to the White House, in reality this was only a Pyrrhic victory over the FBI. What really happened is that a large section of people on the fence about Hillary mentally voted against her months before the election, and against her obvious double standard of justice that the little people were not privy to.

When Marcel Lazar Lehel, aka Guccifer, hacked dozens of celebrities and big name politicians, including Colin Powell and George W. Bush, the world didn’t care that much. But, when he hacked Sidney Blumenthal and uncovered knowledge of Hillary’s illegal private server, all hell broke lose. Not to mention, one has to wonder if any material that related to the secret arms for oil deals and pipeline regime change disasters were in those emails, considering who Mr. Blumenthal is. So much attention was paid to Guccifer that his extradition to the US, which was remarkably quick and seemed to shut him up, was taken with a bit of anxiety by the millions in the anti-Clinton crowd. Indeed, the Alexandria City Jail in Virginia even had to post a statement that he wasn’t dead, due to the overwhelming amount of calls about the topic. It seems the Clinton Body count was becoming a popular skeleton in nominee Clinton’s closet.

Countering the point made by team Hillary that her emails did not divulge state secrets and were mostly about yoga, an Iranian scientist was executed by that government for US spy craft against Iran. The issue of National Security and protection of US interests could not have been more entwined in the private server fiasco, especially considering the timing of the executions and the emails from Jack Sullivan. An email from Huma Abedin to Hillary warned of the effects of the planned regime change in Libya, with very insider language being used from someone who really had no reason to be that close to planned chaos in the country.

On the donor side of controversy, Lafarge was listed again as a donor to the Clinton Foundation for the first quarter of 2016. In August 2016, with less than 90 days before the upcoming presidential election, the Clinton Foundation announced that it would stop accepting foreign donations if Clinton was elected. This was nearly identical to the signed agreement Hillary made to President Obama, when she took the oath of Secretary of State. A promise that was never intended to be kept, the foreign donations kept flowing in throughout her time at State.

Many in the emerging alt-right, centrists and the entire right wing were concerned that Hillary’s health would be a major issue in the 2016 race, because of a video of her appearing to go through a sort of mild seizure. Dr. Drew’s show got cancelled for his inference that Hillary’s doctors knew more about Hillary’s health than they were willing to tell the public. David Seaman, a writer for the Huffington Post, was also fired for his remarks about Hillary’s health. Actually, the rumors of ill health are backed up in numerous ways, the most obvious of which is when she mysteriously quit the office of Secretary of State, and passed the torch to Mr. shadow government himself, John Kerry. This was illustrated by a Wikileaks email that refers to her “cracked head.”

Each week of August brought in more and more information about the many facets of Clinton’s scandals. None of this helped her in any way, as the poll’s skewed their data (which turned out to be off by historic margins of error,) her health was in question, her ability to jeopardize national security was at issue, and despite her strangle-hold on MSM donor propaganda, many Democrats lost their jobs and Hillary kept putting her foot in her mouth. Whether it was calling nurses “glorified babysitters,” calling millions of Americans “deplorable,” or DNC Finance Director Jordan Kaplan dishonorably leaving the DNC over Wikileaks emails, the future of the Democratic Party seemed to be crashing due mostly to the DNC’s picking of possibly one of the most corrupt candidates in US history.

Despite the actual timeline of events, the media continued to spin and whistle blowers became the new “Russian threat.” Democrats put the Ecuadorian embassy under serious pressure to censor Assange and Wikileaks over the DNC leaks, that were having a noticeable impact on the campaign. When Clinton spoke of a double standard for her versus the rest of the world, she was proven correct, albeit not how she implied it when a Navy sailor tried the so-called “Clinton Defense” and lost his security clearance and his freedom for a small fraction of what Hillary put the nation through.

In August, the official joint FBI/US AG probe into the Clinton Foundation was underway, headed by the supposed bi-partisan Preet Bharara, and overlooked by Clinton-stooge, James Comey. This was initially kicked off by a bank notifying the FBI of suspicious activity around a foreign donor to the Foundation. At the time of this writing, the Dallas section of the IRS tasked with non-profit fraud is also currently investigating the Clinton Foundation, and Eric Braverman is still missing. The connections to oil, stinger missiles, sarin gas, pipelines, HSBC and the direct funding of ISIS could all be found in those mysterious emails that will supposedly be reviewed in about 9 years. I strongly urge readers to investigate the works of youtuber George Webb for more on those leads. There is a very damning connection to Libya, and one gets the overwhelming feeling that the entire point of the Libya coup was for a pipeline, lives of everyone involved be damned. This is treason of a new level in the annals of despicable behavior. Libya is still in chaos, 4 years later, a breeding ground for Wahhabi terrorism.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta’s, emails were acquired by a simple phishing scam and published in a multi-part series throughout September and October. Wikileaks published the documents automatically using their stochastic terminator algorithm, which accumulated the trending news of the day, and published accordingly. This amazing piece of technology largely escaped the masses, who were either defending Wikileaks or blaming Russia. Agrowing minority of underground news sources chose to focus on the actual content of the emails, which illustrated DNC corruption and media collusion.

Twitter’s GOPPollAnalyst, Katica, broke a story that involved Paul Combetta of Platt River fame. Paul was found on reddit asking the tech community how to scrub the name of a “very VIP” individual from the to and from fields of Subpoenaed FOIA emails. The fact that the media larger ignored this smoking gun of intent, and that Mr. Combetta had an immunity deal with the FBI, is astonishing. To this day, nothing has come of this very clear proof of intent that the FBI previously said did not exist enough for a Justice Department indictment. Bloomberg even admitted that Hillary said she handed over all work related emails, even though the FBI Director said they found several thousand more that weren’t handed over. Hillary requested that Platte River forensically destroy emails that were supposedly about Yoga, using a product called BleachBit. Heather Samuelson, a longtime Clinton aide and former State Department official, oversaw the review of Clinton emails before they were given to the State Department. Clinton lawyer David Kendall and her former chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, oversaw the process.

It seemed that emails were the main point of damnation for Hillary, at least from the actual voter’s perspective, never mind the constant collusion between the Democrats and the main stream media. Emails from Chelsea were found under a pseudonym, and later led internet sleuths to find out that Chelsea’s wedding was funded by illegal Clinton Foundation money destined for charity instead of a $multi-million wedding.

The September 11th World Trade Center memorial was stopped short for Hillary, as the world watched her faint, and be pushed into a vehicle by multiple security personnel. She was seen later that day outside Chelsea’s apartment, almost like a different woman, and with no visible secret service, giving a little girl a kiss. The cover story for the following week was that she had pneumonia, and fainted. If that was the case, it was “Extremely careless,” of her to subject that child to possible pneumonia. Most saw all of this as a cover up for her declining health, and the coughing memes multiplied, along with the body double theories.

History would repeat itself again, twice in one year, with his public announcement that Hillary was “extremely careless” but did not show signs of criminal intent. The investigation would be reopened in the Fall with the discovery of 650,000 emails found on Human Abedin’s laptop, only to exonerate Hillary in the final weeks of the general election. No indictments would be recommended, but by that time she had become guilty in the eyes of millions of new Trump supporters.

Dangerous clown sightings became the top story on October, with the distraction crew on high alert. An old video of Trump saying he could “grab ‘em by the pussy,” mysteriously appeared, just as Project Veritas Action were putting out one damning video after another about DNC corruption and voter fraud. The end result of these videos, besides yet another drop in the Democrats corruption bucket in the minds of voters, was multiple changes in the DNC’s personnel, followed by a narrative that the videos were all faked and edited. If that was the case, it is certainly strange that Scott Foval was fired from Americans United for Change, the day after one of the video’s aired.  Mobilize consultant and long time Obama AgitProp guru, Robert Creamer, also stepped down from any involvement at the DNC. The videos showed the dirty voter manipulation and downright violent agitation of the supposed good guy liberals. As James O’Keefe of Project Veritas filed an FEC complaint against the Clinton camp, the world started rethinking all the violence at the Trump rallies, and the strings started to get revealed behind supposed legitimate protests. George Soros funneled more and more money into several AgitProp groups such as Black Lives Matter and Washington CAN, as well as had his MoveOn.org publicly advertise for paid protesters at Trump events. The situation could not be sadder for the lack of actual Hillary supporters, but the David Brock’s and the George Soros’s of the world certainly put a dent in the narrative for the completely gullible.

Virginia Governor, Terry McAuliffe, a longtime friend of Hillary and Bill, steered money to the campaign of the wife of a top FBI official. Political organizations under Mr. McAuliffeís control gave more than $675,000 to the 2015 Virginia state Senate campaign of Jill McCabe, the wife of FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe. Mr. McCabe, director James Comey’s right-hand man, helped oversee the probe into whether Mrs. Clinton mishandled classified information on her server. Some $467,500 of the money came directly from Mr. McAuliffe’s political action committee, Common Good VA, while $207,788 came from the Virginia Democratic Party, which the Governor essentially controlled. The funds amounted to more than one-third of all the money Mrs. McCabe raised. Mrs. McCabe announced her candidacy the same month (March 2015) as the news broke about Mrs. Clinton’s private email server. Mr. McCabe was running the FBI’s Washington field office at the time, and he was promoted to the No. 3 FBI slot not long after the formal FBI investigation began in July 2015.

trump-and-the-press

 

On November 8th, and the wee hours of the 9th, America voted in the 45th President of the USA, Donald J. Trump. The Silent Minority duped the MSM, the metropolitan coasts, and even the majority of supposed non-partisan pollsters. The so-called “fly over states” decided that they had had enough of liberal talk about change, and demanded more jobs, an overhauled health care system, less taxes, and better security for the nation at large. Even lifelong Democrats participated in a #DEMExit, and voted against Hillary Clinton, in surprise states such as Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan.

As the rust belt celebrated a victory, child-like liberals and out-of-touch Hollywood moguls blamed racism and white supremacy for Trump’s win. Most main stream media blamed the Russians, and Obama even signed into law a dangerous Ministry of Truth plan called the NDAA, that basically funded a new thought police to the tune of 12 digits. A black pastor called the racism claims ridiculous and cited that Hillary was never a friend of rural America, with such terrible mistakes like the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP,) the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA,) SHAFTA, favored nation status for China, and Glass-Steagall, As the TPP was killed primarily because of Brexit and the Trump nomination, and Trump was re-negotiating a deal with Boeing, the aviation giant refuses to disclose any Boeing-State Department-Clinton Foundation email correspondences. It seemed that the Boeing Chairman told his shareholders that he was “comfortable” with donations to the Clinton Foundation that could put Boeing at risk of Honest Services Fraud Charges, and those shareholders went with Trump.

The will of farmers, auto workers, miners, and builders was to vote Red. Trump campaigned in the states that mattered for an electoral win, the only kind that has ever mattered in a Presidential election. Hillary focused on a handful of progressive, liberal, ultra-metropolitan cities. Hillary had paid events with high profile celebs in states that only matter due to a popular vote (and states that don’t require a photo ID to vote.) A couple weeks of liberal tears videos and paid protests passed, and the Green Party candidate, Jill Stein, organized a massive and expensive recount of three states, the sum total of which was a net positive gain in electoral votes for Donald Trump.

December was no better for the image of a broken Democratic Party. Day by day, articles from the Washington Post, CNN, Politico and more would bring up some supposed link to Russian hacking and the 2016 election. The fact that a mysterious CIA source for this Russian narrative, and that the Washington Post, who had a decades long collusion with the CIA, was the main propagator of the narrative, caused an underground media uproar. Underground sources reminded their readers that the CIA had funded the Washington Post’s propaganda for years, (Archive) and also of the dubious nature of the CIA source. NBC’s Chuck Todd became upset after it was revealed that the NBC ‘reporter’ behind Putin claims was “CIA mop up man” Ken Dilanian. (Archive) Numerous other agencies in the US intelligence community, including multiple sources within the CIA, discredited the “secret assessment.” A senior FBI counterintelligence official met with a bipartisan group of lawmakers and told them that the agency did not agree with the CIA’s assertion, calling them “fuzzy” and “ambiguous,” as no concrete proof of the allegations existed. Reuters reported that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) refused to endorse the CIA “secret” assessment. Some CIA insiders argued that out-going CIA director John Brennan and his inner circle, “could not be trusted to disseminate any true intelligence without tainting raw data with political ideologies that parallel their White House boss” and the neoliberal establishment. With trust in the main stream media at an all time low, the end of the year saw great change in the level and quality of reporting from underground sources, and an awaking of people that took it upon themselves to become the media.

 

Go back to the beginning.
