11 Days From Election and FBI Reopens Hillary Clinton Email Investigation

Although Comey cites new emails from Anthony Weiner’s server as his impetus, I wonder if recent revelations made public of shady dealings and DOJ interference are forcing him to act.

Just 11 days before Election Day, FBI Director James Comey has sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee informing them of his intention to restart the probe into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. A new batch of emails somehow relating to Hillary’s case were found in an unrelated, ongoing investigation of Anthony Weiner, the former Congressman from New York and former spouse of Hillary’s closest aide Huma Abedin.

Emails Related to Clinton Case Found in Anthony Weiner Investigation

Although Comey cites new emails from Anthony Weiner’s server as his impetus, I wonder if recent revelations made public of shady dealings and DOJ interference are forcing him to act. 11 days before Election Day is certainly not ideal timing for the Clinton campaign. There are rumors of disgruntled FBI investigators and a drop in morale following the decision not to pursue Hillary on her email scandal, and accusations that Comey has politicized the FBI.

Justice Department Prevented FBI Probe Of Clinton Foundation; Reporters Slam State Department Stonewalling

“At the time, three field offices were in agreement an investigation should be launched after the FBI received notification from a bank of suspicious activity from a foreigner who had donated to the Clinton Foundation, according to the official.”

DOJ officials pushed back against opening a case, claiming to have already investigated and cleared the Clinton Foundation from any wrongdoing.

Since Comey is citing new information from a separate FBI investigation rather than Wikileaks, the McCarthyistic red herring of claiming Russian interference in the election cannot be used to deflect or shut down the probe. But we will have to see if Comey changes his ways, or decides to continue destroying evidence and handing out immunity deals like candy to help Hillary’s cover-up.

Merkel’s Attack on the Internet Giants and the Growing Rift Between American and EU Globalists

Whether doing too much or doing too little, the social networks will never be able to please Merkel and her toadies in Brussels.

Angela Merkel, current Chancellor of Germany and the loneliest politician in the world, has recently accused the American internet giants Facebook and Google of using their search algorithms to create echo chambers and stifle public discourse in Europe.

Angela Merkel: internet search engines are ‘distorting perception’

All of which is ironic as the EU had just accused the big social networks of not involving themselves enough in public discourse. After the Paris Terror attacks, the EU developed a “code of conduct” agreement for Facebook, Google, Twitter and Microsoft pushing the censoring of racially-motivated and violent hate speech. At a 2015 U.N. development summit in New York, Merkel herself was caught on a hot mic pressuring Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to crack down on hate speech in his platform. Merkel and the EU’s multiculturalism and open borders ideology intentionally misconstrues a distrust and skepticism of unvetted refugees and migrants as racist, Islamophobic, and xenophobic hate speech. By allowing the migrants to flow unabetted, war and regime change in Syria and other middle eastern nations can continue. Popular support is needed to facilitate this.

There are many in Silicon Valley who readily identify with the Globalist mission. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg is actively assisting the Clinton campaign, hoping to become Treasury Secretary in a Clinton administration. Eric Schmidt, the CEO of Alphabet, Google’s parent company, has been working directly with Hillary’s campaign since October of 2014.

Twitter also gave into the pressure and formed the “Twitter Trust & Safety Council,” comprised mostly of Progressive organizations who have bought into the conflation of an actual western liberal concept of equality under the law with freedom from societal ills. This misconception legitimizes political correctness, accusations of hate speech, and various other pseudo-philosophical, pseudo-intellectual guilt tripping, shaming and bullyism. Ever since then, Twitter’s value as a company has been on a downward trajectory. The reality is, bureaucracy and regulation, no matter how well-intentioned, displace freedom. Constantly being afraid of having your message conflated with any kind of bigotry is not fun, it’s repressive and uncomfortable. Twitter is now laying off 9% of its employees and shutting down Vine.

End Of The Vine: Twitter Says It’s Closing Video App Amid Wider Layoffs

Whether doing too much or doing too little, the social networks will never be able to please Merkel and her toadies in Brussels. These bureaucrats can only do one thing- expand the bureaucracy, and now they are trying to bring the social networks into their top-down governance structure. The EU will continue to heap edicts and regulations onto social media in order to assert de facto control over them, otherwise they won’t be welcome in the Eurozone. Control over the discourse, not protecting it, is the goal.

Although they may be giants of the internet, social media firms are still treated like pawns on the global chessboard, and are getting caught up in the economic tug of war between American and EU Globalists. After the EU fined Apple $14.5 billion for corporate tax avoidance, the US Department of Justice levied a $14 billion fine against the slowly unraveling Deutsche Bank. The Apple fine was dropped, probably because the fall of a hugely over-leveraged Deutsche Bank would have triggered another global recession. It looks like tit-for-tat, and now these American social media networks are being treated more like interlopers than guests.

But I think Mark Zuckerberg has seen the writing on the wall and realized that some of these individuals, such as Sheryl Sandberg, are willing to use a business as a stepping stone to reach their own political ambitions, and will happily jump ship if Facebook starts to sink like Twitter. Although I’m not sure if Zuckerberg genuinely cares about open political discourse or the welfare of the American people, I do believe he knows better than to let ideologues twist and manipulate Facebook until it is politicized and broken. He knows that the Globalists like Merkel running the EU and Hillary running for President, have no personal stakes in his business. They view it, and him, as a tool. When Trump supporter Peter Thiel became the target of ostracism for making a political donation, Zuckerberg knew he had to make a decision and take a stand to decide the future of his company. His leaked internal message tells the story:

Obama’s Executive Order on “Space Weather” and the Escalation With Russia

Although many in the public see the nuclear ICBM as the ultimate weapon in any modern military arsenal, that is an outmoded attitude that has prevailed since the 1950’s.

On October 13, 2016, President Obama signed an executive order directing the Executive branch to prepare the US for the possibility of “solar flares, solar energetic particles, and geomagnetic disturbances.” A slew of agencies and departments are being tasked with carrying out this preparatory measure.

Executive Order — Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events

“(i) The Secretaries of Defense, the Interior, Commerce, Transportation, Energy, and Homeland Security, along with the Administrator of NASA and the Director of [the National Science Foundation], shall work together, consistent with their ongoing activities, to develop models, observation systems, technologies, and approaches that inform and enhance national preparedness for the effects of space weather events, including how space weather events may affect critical infrastructure and change the threat landscape with respect to other hazards.”

Although scientists have not been particularly impressed with recent solar activity following the last solar peak of the 1990’s, large solar flares have hit Earth before. In 1859, a powerful coronal mass ejection created massive aurora effects around the world. Gold miners living in the Rocky Mountains woke up and began cooking breakfast, thinking it was morning. Telegraph equipment began shooting sparks while their operators were electrocuted. The amount of time that passed between the observation of the 1859 Carrington Flare and the ejection’s impact with the magnetosphere was 17.6 hours.

With less than a day’s notice to brace a country’s infrastructure and technology from a burst of electromagnetic energy, President Obama has taken on quite a task for the Executive branch. Although I do wonder why the President felt compelled to forego the support of Congress, who would have probably been amenable to some extent, and to relegate FEMA to a supporting role. For you see, there are many more, unexplained dangers other than simple power and internet outages that space weather and geomagnetic disturbances pose towards the national infrastructure.

The satellites that coordinate payment systems and military and private GPS services will be the first casualties. More disturbingly, geomagnetic storms can induce currents in oil pipeline systems, causing their steel to corrode and fail. Electrical damage to control and monitoring systems can allow a breach in the pipeline and oil spills to go unnoticed. I believe that it is this concern over environmental contamination and a loss in oil production, that President Obama is particularly worried about, and I believe that the President’s concerns are not arbitrary in nature. It’s my opinion that the US and Russia have already begun to exchange very subtle but decisive blows in the developing currency war.

Although many in the public see the nuclear ICBM as the ultimate weapon in any modern military arsenal, that is an outmoded attitude that has prevailed since the 1950’s. The eventuality of technological parity, accelerated by Soviet moles, made the concept of Mutual Assured Destruction, and the nuclear standoff, all but predictable. Therefore, any oligarch with an eye towards world domination would have understood the need to move beyond tip-toeing around nuclear warheads to complete their geopolitical objectives. But since those nukes aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, and are instead multiplying, any new offensive strategy would have to be implicitly covert.

A look at the recent rhetoric and saber rattling between Russia and the US may be revealing in this aspect. After the breakdown of the ill-fated truce in Syria, and after Assad’s army restarted the Aleppo campaign, many small earthquakes of an unusual nature were detected along the San Andreas fault line in California. Days later, Russia issued a warning to the US.

Russia says U.S. ‘aggression’ in Syria would mean ‘tectonic shifts’

Scientists in California just discovered a new type of earthquake

What better cover than mother nature? Throw some ambiguous climate change speculation on top of that and you have some pretty solid plausible deniability. Looking at some other very timely earthquakes, it would appear that Russia is not the only one capable of such chicanery. On March 1, 2014, thousands of Russian soldiers poured over the Russian-Ukrainian border as Ukrainian protestors took the streets to reject the legitimacy of both the Soros-backed Euromaidan faction and the pro-Russia administration under democratically-elected Viktor Yanukovych. The very next day, a magnitude 4.1 earthquake hit Crimea.

Ukraine Says Thousands of Russian Troops Have Crossed Border

Moderate earthquake – Crimea Region, Ukraine on March 2, 2014

And now,

Scientists Claim Crimea Is Literally Moving Closer to Russia

“Experts from Russia’s Academy of Science (RAN) claim that Crimea as a land mass has physically been moving towards Russia since 2014, when Moscow held an internationally unrecognized vote to take control of the peninsula.”

The stated referendum occurred on March 16, 2014, two weeks after the Crimean earthquake.

If there is a shadow war going on between the US and Russia, then President Obama would recognize an electromagnetic attack on oil pipelines as a major weakness for the US. If you’ve kept up with Russia, you know that Putin and his oil-rubin are dependent on oil sales to keep the Russian economy moving, and the recent oil glut has done serious damage to Russian growth. Any attempt to cut oil production and increase oil prices is a win for Russia, and Obama is already facing fierce resistance to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline for exactly that reason – the potential for environmental contamination.

The Wikileaks Podesta Emails Part IV: Putin and Russia

“In terms of interesting, Vladimir Putin is always interesting. You’re never quite sure what he’s going to do or say next, and he’s always—he walks around with, you know, a redwood chip on his shoulder defending and promoting, you know, Mother Russia.”

Again, Assange has probably taken out the most sensitive information in Podesta’s emails and other leaks, but what information we do have illustrates Russia’s breakout from the hegemony run from Washington, London, and Berlin.

2008 Invasion of Georgia

This email from Podesta to Scott Lilly, a fellow at the Center for American Progress, concerns the Russian invasion of Georgia after Putin’s South Ossetian rebels had failed to dissuade Georgia from seeking NATO membership. Georgia lies in a geographically strategic area, with oil pipelines running from the Caspian Sea reserves to Europe circumventing the Russia/Iranian sphere of influence in the area. This pipeline was an economic anchor for the west to penetrate into the Caucuses, commonly referred to as Russia’s backyard.

“I have it on good authority that the DNI was completely caught off guard by the Russian invasion. He was, according to my information, watching CNN with his mouth wide open. This is a collosal[sic] failure of U.S. intelligence. The word inside the community is that overhead and other resources were so fully tasked on Iraq and Afghanistan that little was left for the South Caucuses. That indicates that the security costs presented by the Iraq occupation are even more profound than believed by many of us who worried about that issue.”

https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/1764

This also indicates that the Globalists had underestimated Putin’s gall. After George Soros and his NGO’s plundered Russian state assets and sold them for pennies under the Yeltsin regime, the Globalists didn’t think that Russia had the economic capability, let alone the political will, to launch a coordinated military campaign to rebuff western advances through the former Soviet satellite countries.

Too Defensive

In a paid speech to Goldman Sachs at the 2013 IBD CEO Annual Conference, Clinton is either sugar coating or misinterpreting Putin’s petulance and mistrust of the West as defensiveness.

“So we were making progress, and I think Putin has a different view. Certainly he’s asserted himself in a way now that is going to take some management on our side, but obviously we would very much like to have a positive relationship with Russia and we would like to see Putin be less defensive toward a relationship with the United States so that we could work together on some issues.”

Interesting

In yet another paid speech for the 2013 Jewish United Fund Of Metropolitan Chicago Vanguard Luncheon, Clinton talks about trying to break through a barrier of distrust.
 …
“In terms of interesting, Vladimir Putin is always interesting. You’re never quite sure what he’s going to do or say next, and he’s always—he walks around with, you know, a redwood chip on his shoulder defending and promoting, you know, Mother Russia. So he and I have had our interesting moments. He accused me of personally causing all the riots after the contested election two years ago, but he is someone who you have to deal with. You can’t, you know, just wish he would go away. He has a huge country and huge potential for causing problems for many people so I always tried to figure out some way to connect with him, what we could talk about that maybe we had some common ground”
Hillary is right when she says you can’t wish Russia would just go away. What she is talking about is Mackinder’s Heartland Theory, and the fact that every land invasion of Russia, from the Nazis in Operation Barbarossa, to Napoleon Bonaparte’s Grande Armee, and even the Mongol Hordes could not put Russia away for good. The combination of vast expanses of territory, harsh winters, and a massive human population have always been the root of Russia’s strength.

Putin Likes Tigers

At the same luncheon, Hillary claimed to have bonded with Putin over wildlife conservation.

“I said, ‘You know, Mr. Prime Minister, we actually have some things in common. We both want to protect wildlife, and I know how committed you are to protecting the tiger.’ I mean, all of a sudden, he sat up straight and his eyes got big and he goes, ‘You care about the tiger? I said, ‘I care about the tiger, I care about the elephant, I care about the rhinoceros, I care about the whale.’

So we go down the stairs, we go down this long hall, we go into this private inner sanctum. All of his, you know, very beefy security guys are there, they all jump up at attention, you know, they punch a code, he goes through a heavily-armed door. And then we’re in an inner, inner sanctum with, you know, just this long, wooden table, and then further back, there’s a desk and the biggest map of Russia I ever saw. And he starts talking to me about, you know, the habitat of the tigers and the habitat of the seals and the whales. And it was quite something.”

HWA Speech Flags [pdf] pg. 61

We should all remember that Putin was a member of the KGB working in East Germany. He may have let Hillary into his man cave, but Putin knows better than to ever, ever trust the Globalist elite.

Regardless of what you think of Putin, it’s fairly clear that he has refused to cooperate with the Globalist system, and I think he will never trust any member of the Washington elite or any Globalist. More distressingly, his defiance has been rewarded by his own efforts, and others are beginning to notice. What is so painfully obvious is how oblivious the elite are to the destruction of their own credibility.

The Wikileaks Podesta Emails Part III: Rule by Demographic and Fake Multiculturalism

For modern progressives, equality is being conflated with freedom from ambiguous social and economic ills rather than equal rights under the law.

The western liberal bedrock of America’s political philosophy places an emphasis on liberty and equality under the law. This type of equality is far removed from the Utopian, modern progressive concept of equality. The 18th century western liberals who met in the Masonic Lodges and plotted the bloody French Revolution were seeking actual justice, not “social justice.” They were overthrowing a tyrannical, nepotistic, crony aristocracy proven to be thoroughly incompetent by waging expensive, foreign wars in the New World until the state was in a financial crisis and nearly bankrupt. If that sounds familiar, it might explain the revolutionary overtones coming from the Trump camp with their calls of double standards under the law and a rigged election.

For modern progressives, equality is being conflated with freedom from ambiguous social and economic ills rather than equal rights under the law. Things like liberation theology, patriarchal conspiracy theories, white privilege, and gender normality are charges often levied against the population as a whole rather than in specific cases. Often times the mere perception of bigotry is enough to invite a social justice war, regardless of the intent of the accused. It is this incredibly bizarre, flimsy standard of defining bigotry that allows the movement to continue. Rather than attacking entire groups of people deemed as outsiders, SJW’s should be pointing at specific individuals and specific laws and policy that could be defined as prejudiced under the Constitution to be changed accordingly. To do that would ensure equality under the law, which is the true goal of western liberalism.

5.2 Social justice seen as a substitute for the protection of human rights
‘Social justice’ first appeared in United Nations texts during the second half of the 1960s. At the initiative of the Soviet Union, and with the support of developing countries, the term was used in the Declaration on Social Progress and Development, adopted in 1969.”

By dehumanizing and invalidating the beliefs of so many of the population, the only acceptable way to define justice among a people is through consensus building and the democratic process. That means that the government is now the granter of rights and what is fair, and the western liberal core concept of receiving inalienable, natural rights at birth is forgotten. This is why some particularly brainwashed SJW’s are willing to turn a blind eye to the legal double standard provided to their presidential nominee, and why President Obama, being a constitutional lawyer, has no qualms about violating it time and time again. After all, rich, white slave owners wrote those things. The entirety of this social justice ideology is based on fundamental misunderstandings of American culture and political philosophy, which is starting to become a very common theme among those in the Social Justice movement going all the way back to one of its founders, Herbert Marcuse.

The last thing the Globalists want to do is to eliminate racism and deprive themselves of one more social construct to differentiate and divide their constituencies. When people like Hillary Clinton talk about things like implicit bias, they destroy the notion that there is a set of shared values existing outside of the law and within the American people. Values such as the search for truth and justice, fighting against corruption and tyranny, protecting the weak and indefensible, and the free and open exchange of ideas and criticism of the secular government are all a part of the story of America. When the people in power are content to set aside their ethics and morality in favor of maintaining the perception of having ethics and morality, they will justify themselves with moral relativism and there will be corruption.

It is this moral relativism, and the emphasis on maintaining a good perception rather than being good, that is so painfully evident in the communications of Podesta and his colleagues. To these people, equality is just a means to their own ends, a social movement to push their agenda, and not a noble goal in and of itself. I myself am offended by these comments, and at the elitism, dehumanization, and immaturity on display here.

Food Groups

In an email to Hillary discussing prospective Vice Presidents to run with, Podesta organized candidates by latinos, women, white men, blacks, former military, and the very rich. Bernie Sanders was placed at the bottom of the list, in his own socialist food group.

“Cheryl, Robby, Jake, Huma, Jennifer and I also did a first cut of people to consider for VP. I have organized names in rough food groups.”

https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/15616

Conventional wisdom states that the most qualified, experienced person become VP, but the perception of multiculturalism takes priority.

San Bernardino Bummer

In an email referencing the San Bernardino shooting that killed 14 Americans and injured 22, Podesta laments that the shooter was a muslim and wishes he were white instead.

“Better if a guy named Sayeed Farouk was reporting that a guy named Christopher Hayes was the shooter.”

https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/11500

Podesta’s wishful thinking highlights how progressives are being pushed to become apologists for jihadis. Islamic extremism on 9/11 was the justification for the national security/surveillance framework spawned from legislation like the PATRIOT act. Now that this framework is in place and functioning, the goal is to turn it onto the American people by holding up domestic terrorism as a more urgent threat than ISIS and jihadis.

Bastardization of the Faith

In an email titled “Conservative Catholicism” to Podesta and Hillary’s communication director Jennifer Palmieri, the staffers mock Catholics, Catholic philosophy, Rupert Murdoch baptizing his children, and Evangelicals.

“Many of the most powerful elements of the conservative movement are all Catholic (many converts) from the SC and think tanks to the media and social groups.

It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith. They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy.”

https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/4364

Palmieri, herself a proclaimed Catholic, agreed in a response to the email and characterized Evangelism as not “socially acceptable.” Palmieri later denied making the statements to the press, blaming the Russians as her voice was cracking.

Hate

In another email chain between Podesta and Palmieri, Podesta himself airs concerns over Hillary’s inability to understand or empathize with average people.

“I know she has begun to hate everyday Americans, but I think we should use it once the first time she says I’m running for president because you and everyday Americans need a champion.”

https://www.wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/4433

The fact that Podesta chose to use such a strong word – hate – illustrates just how badly the bubble around Washington has gotten, and how completely removed from reality and society the elite have become. In what manner would a President who hates her people rule?

The reality is that those in power view the average person as nothing more than a vote, and when the election season is over, it’s back to a “compliant and unaware citizenry.” The whole social construct which divides people by melanin levels, sexual preference, and “gender” serves to balkanize the American people. Although individual special interest groups feel united by this rhetoric, and identity politics are emboldened, the people as a whole cannot unite under this ideology, and will always be susceptible to accusations of sexism, racism, and any other “ism” that can be fabricated from a perception or a personal experience without citing any actual bigoted individuals or policies.

The Wikileaks Podesta Emails Part II: Syria, ISIS, and Sunnis

“So all of a sudden this intervention that people talk about so glibly becomes an American and NATO involvement where you take a lot of civilians. In Libya we didn’t have that problem.”

Despite the fact that Julian Assange is doing his part to withhold the more sensitive communications from the public, these leaks still have some very revealing information buried in them. The speeches to Hillary’s well-heeled friends in particular really might contain enough information to justify the speaking fee. Their purpose is to give her donors a heads up or inside knowledge to be used to their benefit financially and politically if Clinton makes office. The unwashed masses are going to have to make do with lies, empty promises, and half-truths.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar Funding ISIS

In an email Podesta sent to Hillary Clinton in September of 2014,  Podesta mentions that the Saudis and Qataris have been secretly funding ISIS since 2014, and the two nations are competing for influence over Sunnis in the region.

“This entire effort should be done with a low profile, avoiding the massive traditional military operations that are at best temporary solutions. While this military/para-military operation is moving forward, we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region. This effort will be enhanced by the stepped up commitment in the KRG. The Qataris and Saudis will be put in a position of balancing policy between their ongoing competition to dominate the Sunni world and the consequences of serious U.S. pressure.”

https://www.wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/3774#searchresult

Following the passage of the Iran deal, the political loss of Iraq to the Iranian Shia sect, and an uprising of Houthi rebels in Yemen, it’s very clear that Iran is attempting to knock Saudi Arabia off as the dominate power in the region. The Saudis’ answer is to contain the offensive and use political pressure and lobbying in Washington to reverse the Iran deal and deprive the Iranians of a nuclear bomb, which would counterbalance the Saudi’s own nuclear armaments. The strait of Hormuz, a gateway in and out of the Persian gulf and part of a crucial maritime trade route for oil tankers, is now witnessing Iranian-Italian naval drills, Saudi naval drills, Iranian threats of mining and provocations on US ships.

A Lack of Vetting and Jihadis Infiltrating Refugee Flows

Hillary admits that refugees fleeing the Syrian war to Jordan and Turkey cannot be vetted properly in a transcript of a paid speech given to the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago’s Vanguard Luncheon on October 28, 2013. She also acknowledges that there’s no way to know if ISIS agents are infiltrating migrant flows.

“So I think you’re right to have gone to the places that you visited because there’s a discussion going on now across the region to try to see where there might be common ground to deal with the threat posed by extremism and particularly with Syria which has everyone quite worried, Jordan because it’s on their border and they have hundreds of thousands of refugees and they can’t possibly vet all those refugees so they don’t know if, you know, jihadists are coming in along with legitimate refugees. Turkey for the same reason.”

WikiLeaks: Hillary Clinton Said Jordan ‘Can’t Possibly Vet All Those Refugees’ from Syria; ‘Jihadists Are Coming in Along with Legitimate Refugees’

Open Borders

Hillary told a bunch of Brazilian bankers about her dream of turning North America into the EU, and dissolving borders.

“My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, some time in the future with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere.”

https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/927

Intervening in Syria

During a 2013 speech to Goldman Sach CEO’s, Hillary complains about how agents of US foreign policy are having much more difficulty acting covertly on the world stage due to loose lips with the media. Clinton also bemoans the inability of the US to gain a tactical toehold in Syria without killing lots of civilians. Russian S-300 and S-400 missile systems have prevented American domination of Syrian airspace over the battlefield.

“And there is still an argument that goes on inside the administration and inside our friends at NATO and the Europeans. How do intervene — my view was you intervene as covertly as is possible for Americans to intervene. We used to be much better at this than we are now. Now, you know, everybody can’t help themselves. They have to go out and tell their friendly reporters and somebody else: Look what we’re doing and I want credit for it, and all the rest of it.”

“But the idea that we would have like a no fly zone — Syria, of course, did have when it started the fourth biggest Army in the world. It had very sophisticated air defense systems. They’re getting more sophisticated thanks to Russian imports. To have a no fly zone you have to take out all of the air defense, many of which are located in populated areas. So our missiles, even if they are standoff missiles so we’re not putting our pilots at risk — you’re going to kill a lot of Syrians. So all of a sudden this intervention that people talk about so glibly becomes an American and NATO involvement where you take a lot of civilians. In Libya we didn’t have that problem. It’s a huge place. The air defenses were not that sophisticated and there wasn’t very — in fact, there were very few civilian casualties. That wouldn’t be the case. And then you add on to it a lot of the air defenses are not only in civilian population centers but near some of their chemical stockpiles. You do not want a missile hitting a chemical stockpile.”

GOLDMAN-SACHS-SPEECHES

Of course, none of this is really coming out of left field, and most of these emails are a few years old, but they do finally corroborate the suspicions and allegations being made against the US and the Saudis in regards to recent events in the middle east. Thanks to Wikileaks we now know this insider information, and we didn’t have to pay her one red cent for it.

The Wikileaks Podesta Emails Part I: Corruption

Alex Jones received his Christmas and Birthday present on the same day when an email from Bill Ivey revealed that manipulation and pacification of the populace is a common strategy roundly accepted as producing satisfactory results for those in power.

The Clintons have had a long history of allegations of corruption ever since the Whitewater scandal of the 70’s. When Bill went on to become governor of Arkansas in the 80’s, there were heinous accusations of drug trafficking through Mena Airport, money laundering under the cover of social welfare programs and with the help of the Rose Law Firm, and even the murder of two teenage boys who had supposedly witnessed one of Bill’s planes landing at Mena. But those things are not confirmed. These leaks, on the other hand, may not contain anything as bombastic or macabre as the Arkansas allegations, but they give us a look into exactly how the Clinton political machine works to seek out rich, friendly donors and maintain Hillary and Bill’s global network.

Echo Chamber

In a memo to oligarch George Soros outlining key points in  Hillary’s 2008 election strategy, Podesta talks about snuffing out political discourse and debate in favor of an echo chamber.

Control the political discourse. So much effort over the past few years has been focused on better coordinating, strengthening, and developing progressive institutions and leaders. Now that this enhanced infrastructure is in place—grassroots organizing; multi-issue advocacy groups; think tanks; youth outreach; faith communities; micro-targeting outfits; the netroots and blogosphere—we need to better utilize these networks to drive the content of politics through a strong “echo chamber” and message delivery system.”

https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/15455

I wonder if this “message delivery system” is also a part of the “enhanced infrastructure” of “developing progressive institutions and leaders.”

 

Politico’s Glenn Thrush

One very unscrupulous, unprofessional journalist sent to Podesta for approval an entire section of his article to be published on Politico.

“No worries

Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains

Please don’t share or tell anyone I did this

Hillary’s big-money dilemma

 

Public and Private Positions

In a lovely private speech to the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) in 2013, Hillary admits what we all knew – that she’s duplicitous.

“I mean, politics is like sausage being made. It is unsavory, and it always has been that way, but we usually end up where we need to be. But if everybody’s watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. So, you need both a public and a private position.”

“An Unaware and Compliant Citizenry”

Alex Jones received his Christmas and Birthday present on the same day when an email from Bill Ivey revealed that manipulation and pacification of the populace is a common strategy roundly accepted as producing satisfactory results for those in power. Ivey notes correctly that Trump has much more charisma than Hillary, who lacks instincts and social skills.

“Secretary Clinton is not an entertainer, and not a celebrity in the Trump, Kardashian mold; what can she do to offset this? I’m certain the poll-directed insiders are sure things will default to policy as soon as the conventions are over, but I think not. And as I’ve mentioned, we’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry. The unawareness remains strong but compliance is obviously fading rapidly. This problem demands some serious, serious thinking – and not just poll driven, demographically-inspired messaging.”

Happy Birthday, Bill

One email from April of 2012  features a request for 5 minutes of access to Bill Clinton by the Qataris to present a check worth $1 million for his birthday. Normally, this isn’t that big of a deal, the check would have gone into the Clinton Foundation slush fund and it would have been business as usual for the corrupt Clintons. But the AP has been unable to confirm if the check actually went to the foundation rather than into Bill’s pocket, which would make this a clear example of quid pro quo for access and maybe influence.

Note the inquiry over donations for Haiti, another potential scandal waiting in the wings for the Clinton Foundation.

Most Clinton Foundation Donors Not American

At another 2013 speech to Mediacorp, Clinton admitted that most of her donors are from foreign countries- mostly Canada.

“Canadians per capita are the biggest supporters of the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative, so it’s great to be supported by so many Canadians,” Clinton said, according to the Washington Examiner.

Donna Brazile

After Debbie Wassermann-Schultz was drummed out of the DNC for rigging the Democratic presidential primary in favor of Clinton and against Bernie Sanders, Donna Brazile was charged with taking her place. Now, Ms. Brazile in being accused of helping Hillary Clinton cheat at a town hall by leaking a question to the campaign. It should be noted that Ms. Brazile has been one of the few to refute the accusations.

“Here’s one that worries me about HRC.

DEATH PENALTY

19 states and the District of Columbia have banned the death penalty. 31 states, including Ohio, still have the death penalty. According to the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, since 1973, 156 people have been on death row and later set free. Since 1976, 1,414 people have been executed in the U.S. That’s 11% of Americans who were sentenced to die, but later exonerated and freed. Should Ohio and the 30 other states join the current list and abolish the death penalty?”

This email matches verbatim a question that Roland Martin sent to CNN producers to give to an audience member to be presented at the town hall. The question was later shortened and a few of the statistics were edited out, but receiving it ahead of time would have still benefited Hillary.

Podesta’s Russian Business Connections

One email replete with financial and investment jargon suggests that John Podesta failed to properly disclose his business interests before becoming a senior advisor to President Obama.

“The disclosure that Clinton Chair John Podesta transferred his shares in Putin-backed Joule Unlimited to an anonymous holding company when he joined the Obama Administration is extremely concerning,” Donald Trump Senior Communications Advisor Jason Miller said in a statement.

The relevant question is who is the anonymous holding company that has Podesta’s 75,000 stocks in Joule Unlimited, and if there is a connection with Russian oligarchs. Podesta is now known to be obsessed with alternative energy and, bizarrely, zero point energy. Considering how merely mentioning ZPE among scientists and intellectuals results in mockery and condemnation, Podesta may be the most powerful advocate for ZPE we’ve ever seen thanks to Wikileaks. Considering the currency war between the US and Russia and the oil glut we’re in, ZPE is just one of many paths the US could take to return itself to global primacy. But the fact that somebody at the top wants to go straight to ZPE is a little disconcerting as the possibility of generating formally infinite amounts of energy will have the potential to change everything.
