Wikileaks: Citi Bank Selected the Obama Cabinet Resulting in: Hillary Clinton as SOS * Clinton’s Ambitions in Destroying Libya * ISIS and Clinton Foundation, both Funded by Saudi Arabia and Qatar

Assange: Clinton is a cog for Goldman Sachs & the Saudis (JOHN PILGER EXCLUSIVE VIDEO & TRANSCRIPT)

Whistleblower Julian Assange has given one of his most incendiary interviews ever in a John Pilger Special, courtesy of Dartmouth Films, in which he summarizes what can be gleaned from the tens of thousands of Clinton emails released by WikiLeaks this year.

John Pilger, another Australian émigré, conducted the 25-minute interview at the Ecuadorian Embassy, where Assange has been trapped since 2012 for fear of extradition to the US. Last month, Assange had his internet access cut off for alleged “interference” in the American presidential election through the work of his website.

‘Clinton made FBI look weak, now there is anger’

John Pilger:What’s the significance of the FBI's intervention in this last week of the US election campaign in the case against Hillary Clinton?

Julian Assange: If you go to the history of the FBI, it has become effectively America's political police. And the FBI demonstrated with taking down the former head of the CIA over classified information given to his mistress [that] almost no one was untouchable. The FBI is always trying to demonstrate that, "No one can resist us." But Hillary Clinton very conspicuously resisted the FBI's investigation. So, there is anger within the FBI because it made the FBI look weak. Well, we have published quite a number of different sets of emails, so, about 33,000 of Clinton's emails while she was Secretary of State. They come from a batch of just over 60,000 emails. In those 60,000 emails, Clinton has kept about half, 30,000, to herself, and we have published about half. And then there are the Podesta emails we've been publishing. Podesta is Hillary Clinton's primary campaign manager. So, there's a thread that runs through all of these emails. There is quite a lot of "pay for play," as they call it – taking… giving access in exchange for money for many individual states, individuals and corporations – combined with the cover-up of Hillary Clinton's emails while she was Secretary of State has led to an environment where the pressure on the FBI increases.

‘Russian government not the source of Clinton leaks’

JP: But the Clinton campaign has said that Russia is behind all of this. It says that Russia has manipulated the campaign and is the source for WikiLeaks and its emails.

JA: The Clinton camp has been able to project that kind of net-mccarthyist hysteria that Russia is responsible for everything.

JP:Yeah.

JA: Hillary Clinton stated multiple times – falsely – that 17 US intelligence agencies had assessed that Russia was the source of our publications. OK. That's false. We can say that the Russian government is not the source, yes. WikiLeaks has been publishing for 10 years. In that 10 years, we've published 10 million documents. Several thousand individual publications, several thousand different sources. And we have never got it wrong.

‘Saudi Arabia & Qatar funding ISIS and Clinton’

JP: All the emails that give evidence of access for money and how Hillary Clinton herself benefitted from this and how she is benefitting politically are quite extraordinary. I'm thinking of where the Qatari representative was given five minutes with Bill Clinton for a million-dollar check and many other examples. Can you…?

JA: …Or $12 million from Morocco.

JP:...$12 million from Morocco... yeah.

JA: ... for Hillary Clinton to attend.

JP: In terms of the foreign policy of the United States, that’s where – for me, anyway – where the emails are most revealing, where they show the direct connection Hillary Clinton and the foundation of jihadism, of ISIL in the Middle East. Can you talk something about that? What the… how the emails demonstrate this connection between... those who are meant to be fighting the jihadist ISIL are actually those who have helped create it.

JA: There's an early 2014 email from Hillary Clinton, so not so long after she left [her job as] Secretary of State, to her campaign manager John Podesta. That email, it states that ISIL, ISIS is funded by Saudi Arabia and Qatar – the governments of Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Now, this is a… I actually think this is the most significant email in the whole collection...

JP: Mmm.

JA: …And perhaps because Saudi and Qatari money is spread all over the place, including into many media institutions, all serious analysts know, even the US government has mentioned or agreed with that some Saudi figures have been supporting ISIS, funding ISIS. But the dodge has always been, that's… what… it's just some rogue princes using their cut of the oil money to do what they like but actually the government disapproves. But that email says that no, it is the governments of Saudi and the government of Qatar that have been funding ISIS.

JP:  The Saudis, the Qataris, the Moroccans, the Bahrainis – particularly the Saudis and the Qataris giving all this money to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State and the State Department is approving massive arms sales, particularly to Saudi Arabia.

JA: Under Hillary Clinton, and Clinton emails reveal significant discussion about it, the largest ever arms deal in the world was made with Saudi Arabia – more than $80 billion. In fact, during her tenure as Secretary of State, total arms exports from United States in terms of the dollar value doubled.

JP: Doubled. And of course, the consequence of that is that this notorious terrorist jihadist group called ISIL, or ISIS, is created largely with money from the very people who are giving money to the Clinton Foundation.

JA: Yes.

JP:That's extraordinary.

‘Clinton has been eaten alive by her ambition’

JA: Look. Hillary Clinton is just a person. I actually feel quite sorry for Hillary Clinton as a person because I see someone who is eaten alive by their ambitions, tormented literally to the point where they become sick. You know, they faint as a result of going on and going on with their ambitions. But she represents a whole network of people, and a network of relationships also with particular states. The question is, how does Hillary Clinton fit in this broader network? She's this centralizing cog, so that you've got a lot of different gears in operation from the big banks like Goldman Sachs, and major elements of Wall Street, and intelligence, and people in the State Department, and the Saudis, and so on. She's is the, if you like, the centralizer that interconnects all these different cogs. She's smooth central representation of all that, and all that is more or less what is in power now in the United States. It's what you call the establishment, or the DC consensus, and its influences. In fact, one of the most significant Podesta emails that we released was about how the Obama cabinet was formed – and half the Obama cabinet was basically nominated by a representative from Citibank. It is quite amazing.

JP:Well, it is… Didn’t Citibank supply a list?

JA: Yes.

JP:…Which turned out to be...

JA: Which turned out to be...

JP:…to be mostly the Obama cabinet.

JA: Yes.

JP:So, Wall Street decides the cabinet of the president of the United States.

JA: If you were following the Obama campaign back then closely, you could see it had become very close to banking interests. It wasn’t so close to oil interests but it was very close to banking interests.

JP:Yeah. Yeah.

JA: So, I think you can't properly understand Hillary Clinton's foreign policy without understanding Saudi Arabia. The connections with Saudi Arabia are so intimate.

‘Libya is Hillary Clinton’s war’

JP: Why was she so demonstrably enthusiastic about the destruction of Libya? Can you talk a little about just what the emails have told us – told you – about what happened there? Because Libya is such a source for so much of the mayhem now in Syria: the ISIL, jihadism, and so on. And it was almost Hillary Clinton's invasion. What do the emails tell us about that?

JA: Libya more that anyone else's war was Hillary Clinton's war. Barack Obama initially opposed it. Who was the person who was championing it? Hillary Clinton. That's documented throughout her emails. She had… She put her favored agent in effect, Sidney Blumenthal, onto that. There's more than 1,700 emails out of the 33 thousand of Hillary Clinton's emails we published just about Libya. It's not about that Libya has cheap oil. She perceived the removal of Gaddafi and the overthrow of the Libyan state something that she would use to run in the general election for president. So late 2011, there's an internal document called the "Libya Tick Tock" that is produced for Hillary Clinton, and it's all the... it's a chronological description of how Hillary Clinton was the central figure in the destruction of the Libyan state. As a result, there are around 40,000 deaths within Libya. Jihadists moved in, ISIS moved in. That led to the European refugee and migrant crisis, because not only did you have people fleeing Libya, people then fleeing Syria, destabilization of other African countries as a result of arms flows. The Libyan state itself was no longer able to control movement of people through it. So, Libya faces on to the Mediterranean. So, it had been effectively the cork in the bottle of Africa. So, all problems, all economic problems, the civil war in Africa... Previously, the people fleeing those problems didn’t end up in Europe because Libya policed the Mediterranean. And that was said explicitly at the time, back in 2011, by Gaddafi: what do these Europeans think they are doing, trying to bomb and destroy the Libyan state? There’s going to be floods of migrants out of Africa, and jihadists into Europe. And that is exactly what happened.

‘Trump won’t be permitted to win’

JP: You get a lot of complaints from people saying, “What is WikiLeaks doing, are they trying to put Trump into White House?”

JA: My analysis is that Trump would not be permitted to win. Why do I say that? Because he’s had every establishment offside. Trump doesn’t have one establishment – maybe with the exception of the Evangelicals, if you can call them an establishment. But banks, intelligence, arms companies, big foreign money, etc. – it’s all united behind Hillary Clinton. And the media as well: so, media owners and even journalists themselves.

JP: The accusations that WikiLeaks is in league with the Russians and you hear people saying, “Well, why doesn’t WikiLeaks investigate and publish emails on Russia?”

JA: We have published over 800,000 documents of various kinds that relate to Russia. Most of those are critical. And… a great many books have come out of our publications about Russia, most of which are critical. And our documents have gone on to be used in quite a number of court cases, refugee cases of people fleeing some kinds of claimed political persecution in Russia, which they use our documents to back up.

JP: Do you take yourself a view of the US election? Do you have a preference for Clinton or Trump?

JA: Donald Trump – what does he represent in the American mind and in the European mind? He represents American “white trash,” deplorable and irredeemable. Basically, the same thing. It means, from a… establishment or educated, cosmopolitan, urbane perspective, these people are, you know, like the rednecks, and you can’t… like, they are just… you can never deal with them. And because he so clearly – through his words and actions and the type of people that turns up at his rallies – represents the people who are not the upper-middle-class-educated, there is a fear of seeming to be associated in any way with that, a social fear that lowers the class status of anyone who can be accused of somehow assisting in any way Trump, including criticizing Clinton. And if you look at how the middle class gains its economic and social power, it makes absolute sense.

‘US attempting to squeeze WikiLeaks through my refugee status’

JP: I’d like to talk about Ecuador, a small country that has given you refuge and has given you asylum in this embassy in London. Now, Ecuador cut off the Internet from here, where we’re doing this interview, in the embassy for the clearly obvious reason that they were concerned about appearing to intervene in the US election campaign. Can you talk about why they would take that action and your own views on Ecuador’s support for you?

JA: Let’s go back four years ago. I made an asylum application to Ecuador in this embassy because of the US extradition case. And the result was after a month, I was successful in my application, and then the embassy has been surrounded by the police. Quite an expensive police operation, which the British government admits they’re spending more than 12.6 million pounds – they’ve admitted that over a year ago. And now there’s undercover police and there’s robot surveillance cameras of various kinds. So, there has been a quite serious conflict right here in the heart of London between Ecuador – a country of 16 million people – and the United Kingdom. And the Americans, who’ve been helping on the side. So, that was a brave and principled thing for Ecuador to do. Now we have the US election afoot. The Ecuadorian election is in February next year. You have the White House feeling the political heat as a result of the true information that we have been publishing. WikiLeaks does not publish from the jurisdiction of Ecuador, from its embassy or the territory of Ecuador. We publish from France, we publish from Germany, we publish from the Netherlands and a number of other countries. So, the attempted squeeze on WikiLeaks is through my refugee status. And this is really intolerable: When you try and get at a publishing organization, to try and prevent it publishing true information that is of intense interest to the American people and others about an election.

JP: Tell us what would happen if you walked out of this embassy.

JA: So, I would be immediately arrested by the British police, and I would then be extradited, either immediately to the United States, or to Sweden. In Sweden, I am not charged, I’ve already been previously cleared, etc. So, we’re not certain exactly what would happen there, but then we know that the Swedish government has refused to say that they will not extradite me to the United States. And they have extradited 100 percent of people that the US has requested since at least 2000. So, over the last 15 years, every single person that the US has tried to extradite from Sweden has been extradited. And they refuse to provide the guarantees. So, it’s… yeah.

JP: People often ask how you cope with the isolation here.

JA: Look, one of the best attributes of human beings is that they are adaptable. One of the worst attributes of human beings is that they are adaptable. They adapt and start to tolerate abuses. They adapt to being involved themselves in abuses. They adapt to adversity and continue on. So, in my situation… frankly, I’m a bit institutionalized. This is the world – visually, this is the world.

JP:It’s a world without sunlight, for one thing…

JA: It’s a world without sunlight, but I haven’t seen sunlight in so long like I don’t remember it. So, yeah, you adapt. The one real irritant is that my young children – they also adapt. They adapt to being without their father. That’s a hard adaptation, which they didn’t ask for.

JP:Do you worry about them?

JA: Yeah, I worry about them, I worry about their mother.

‘I am innocent and in arbitrary detention’

JP: Some people would say, “Well, why don’t you end it and simply walk out the door and allow yourself to be extradited to Sweden?”

JA: The UN has looked into this whole situation. They spent 18 months in formal adversarial litigation: me, at the UN, versus Sweden and the UK – who is right? The UN made a conclusion – I’m being arbitrarily detained, illegally, deprived of my freedom. What has been… occurred, has not occurred within the laws that the United Kingdom and Sweden must obey. It is an illegal abuse. I mean, the United Nations formally asking what’s going on here, what’s your legal explanation for this. He says you should be… you should recognize his asylum. Sweden formally writing back to United Nations, says “No, we’re not going to,” leaving open their ability to extradite. I just find it absolutely amazing that the narrative about this situation is not put out publicly and in the press. Because it doesn’t suit the Western establishment narrative that, “Yes, the West has political prisoners.” It’s a reality. It’s not just me, there’s a bunch of other people as well. The West has political prisoners. No state accepts to call the people it is imprisoning or detaining for political reasons “political prisoners.” They don’t call them political prisoners in China, they don’t call them political prisoners in Azerbaijan, and they don’t call them political prisoners in the United States, the UK or Sweden. It’s absolutely intolerable to have that kind of self-perception. But here we have a case. Talking about the Swedish case, where I have never been charged with a crime, where I have already been cleared and found to be innocent, where the woman herself said that the police made it up, where the United Nations formally said the whole thing is illegal, where the state of Ecuador also investigated and found that I should be given asylum. Those are the facts. But what is the rhetoric?

JP: Different.

JA: The rhetoric is pretending, constantly pretending that I have been charged with a crime, never mentioning that I have been already previously cleared, never mentioning that the woman herself says that the police made it up, trying to avoid that the UN formally found that the whole thing is illegal. Never even mentioning that Ecuador made a formal assessment through its formal processes and found that yes, I am subject to persecution by the United States.

    Calamity Impending for the Clintons
    By Scott S. Powell

    When the Clintons left the White House in 2001, pilfering over $190,000 worth of china, flatware, rugs, and furniture as they cleared out, they claimed they were flat broke.

  5. If Trump loses, the US becomes California without the good weather. The globalists have wrecked most of Western Europe. If the US votes in Clinton, then the US needs its own Brexit or secession. However.

    Most Americans, by far, believe that Lincoln was a genius and greatest president because he was against the first US attempt at Brexit and Lincoln got 700,000 Americans killed in the process so he could serve the interests of empire , big banks and the establishment.

    It is the most educated that support Clinton. Those that have not had their common sense educated out of them support Trump while 90% of all immigrants support Clinton.

    The electoral college is a disaster for democracy. There is no republic and the Constitution and Department of Justice is a farce.

    The media is a propaganda instrument for the ruling class.

    Trump is the last stand for the America that we all knew. If the majority don’t accept it, then fuck it, do what you have to do to survive and let them eat frozen waffles and watch the Kardashians

  10. Here's that Trupundit Story involving the NYPD, FBI, etc. this time via Breitbart, and naming Erik Prince as a source, who lends credibility in my book.

    ...but if she gets elected first, what's gonna happen?
    ===
    The source for Breitbart was Erik Prince, former Navy SEAL and founder/former CEO of Blackwater, who says he has sources within the NYPD who have assured him that the Democrat pedophile's computer contains an ambitious prosecutor's dream's worth of evidence of criminality against many Democrat politicians in Congress – and also, of course, the Clintons and their immediate entourage.

    According to Prince, as quoted by Breitbart:

    "They found State Department emails. They found a lot of other really damning criminal information, including money laundering, including the fact that Hillary went to this sex island with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Bill Clinton went there more than 20 times. Hillary Clinton went there at least six times," he said.

    "The amount of garbage that they found in these emails, of criminal activity by Hillary, by her immediate circle, and even by other Democratic members of Congress was so disgusting they gave it to the FBI, and they said, 'We're going to go public with this if you don't reopen the investigation and you don't do the right thing with timely indictments,'" Prince explained.
    ===

    And that, folks, is reason enough to vote against this evil criminal enterprise the Clintons have constructed. If Hillary gains control of the Justice Department, all her evildoing and criminality will be swept under the rug of history. We must follow the example of the NYPD and not let that happen.

They keep a copy of everything, and they pass a copy on to the FBI, which finally pushes the FBI off their chairs, making Comey reopen that investigation, which was indicated in the letter last week. The point being, NYPD has all the information, and they will pursue justice within their rights if the FBI doesn’t,” Prince contended.

    6. “NYPD was the first one to look at that laptop,” Prince elaborated. “Weiner and Huma Abedin, his wife – the closest adviser of Hillary Clinton for 20 years – have both flipped. They are cooperating with the government. They both have – they see potential jail time of many years for their crimes, for Huma Abedin sending and receiving and even storing hundreds of thousands of messages from the State Department server and from Hillary Clinton’s own homebrew server, which contained classified information. Weiner faces all kinds of exposure for the inappropriate sexting that was going on and for other information that they found.”

  16. CHECK THIS:

    The State Department this week deemed two more of former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s emails to contain classified information, releasing redacted versions Friday, just days before Election Day.
    The messages appear to contain U.S. government policy memos toward Afghanistan and the United Arab Emirates, preparing Mrs. Clinton for phone calls with leaders of those two nations. Information gleaned from foreign governments, as well as U.S. information about other governments, is supposed to be considered classified from the start.
    In these instances, like nearly every other of the more than 2,500 messages now deemed classified, there were no markings at the time

    — a factor Mrs. Clinton’s defenders say excuse her from liability for having sent them over her secret, but unprotected account.


    REALITY CHECK:

    If you work with highly classified security ( I had a Top Secret Crypto Access Clearance when I was 21 years old) no one has to tell you what is classified and what is not.

    A US SOS that need flash cards and red flags to help detect if a document or communication line is classified?

    Nonsense.

    The purpose is of this article is to show off all the info this poor sap has been fed at divinity school.

    Moral duty? Are you kidding? If you deboned both of these candidates, you wouldn't be able to find a moral bone in the pile.

    Juan E. Dávalos is a Ph.D. student at the Van Andel School of Statesmanship at Hillsdale College where he served as a Winston S. Churchill fellow. He holds an M.A. in philosophy of religion and ethics from Biola University. Born and raised in Ecuador, Juan became a U.S. citizen in 2011.

    So this would make Juan...what...twenty-two? Even younger if he was accepted at Hillsdale? Undergrad in philosophy and religion from an evangelical Christian college now studying politics. I assume Biola is where this pompous little prick got his moralistic condescension. Let me know when young Juan gets his head out of his ass and grows up. The paper is a piece of juvenile tripe posing as big-boy thinking. If I were grading his little term paper, it would be marked up in red with so many corrections and comments he wouldn't be able to read it when he got it back.

    Juan probably should have sprinkled in a few more courses in logic and critical thinking in among those on metaphysics. Since he is now in Hillsdale, I would hope that he will soon be challenged and learn.

      I couldn't help commenting on this since it is so currently topical.

      Juan:

      A soldier going into battle cannot choose not to fight. Choosing to escape the fight is not only dishonorable, but it serves no purpose in battle, nor in defending the lives of those he loves. No soldier wants to go out and kill as many people as he possibly can, and no soldier should want to. But the soldier must make that decision. He must reach down into that savage instinct to protect what is his own and overcome the enemy for the purpose of the common good, for the purpose of protecting the rights, liberties, and lives of those he loves.

      :o)

      Ol Juan needs to get out more. Then, perhaps, he would of heard about Mel Gibson's new movie Hacksaw Ridge. It's about Desmond Doss, a Seventh Day Adventist who joined the army in WWII and refused to carry a weapon. After much abuse he became a medic. He received the Medal of Honor, 2 Bronze Stars, and 3 Purple Hearts.

      This is what was read when he got the Medal of Honor...

      The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pleasure in presenting the Medal of Honor to Private First Class Desmond Thomas Doss, United States Army, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action above and beyond the call of duty from April 29 – 21 May 1945, while serving with the Medical Detachment, 307th Infantry Regiment, 77th Infantry Division, in action at Urasoe Mura, Okinawa, Ryukyu Islands. Private First Class Doss was a company aid man when the 1st Battalion assaulted a jagged escarpment 400 feet high. As our troops gained the summit, a heavy concentration of artillery, mortar and machine gun fire crashed into them, inflicting approximately 75 casualties and driving the others back. Pfc. Doss refused to seek cover and remained in the fire-swept area with the many stricken, carrying all 75 casualties one-by-one to the edge of the escarpment and there lowering them on a rope-supported litter down the face of a cliff to friendly hands.

      {...}

      On May 2, he exposed himself to heavy rifle and mortar fire in rescuing a wounded man 200 yards forward of the lines on the same escarpment; and 2 days later he treated 4 men who had been cut down while assaulting a strongly defended cave, advancing through a shower of grenades to within eight yards of enemy forces in a cave's mouth, where he dressed his comrades' wounds before making 4 separate trips under fire to evacuate them to safety. On May 5, he unhesitatingly braved enemy shelling and small arms fire to assist an artillery officer. He applied bandages, moved his patient to a spot that offered protection from small arms fire and, while artillery and mortar shells fell close by, painstakingly administered plasma. Later that day, when an American was severely wounded by fire from a cave, Pfc. Doss crawled to him where he had fallen 25 feet from the enemy position, rendered aid, and carried him 100 yards to safety while continually exposed to enemy fire. On May 21, in a night attack on high ground near Shuri, he remained in exposed territory while the rest of his company took cover, fearlessly risking the chance that he would be mistaken for an infiltrating Japanese and giving aid to the injured until he was himself seriously wounded in the legs by the explosion of a grenade. Rather than call another aid man from cover, he cared for his own injuries and waited 5 hours before litter bearers reached him and started carrying him to cover. The trio was caught in an enemy tank attack and Pfc. Doss, seeing a more critically wounded man nearby, crawled off the litter; and directed the bearers to give their first attention to the other man. Awaiting the litter bearers' return, he was again struck, by a sniper bullet while being carried off the field by a comrade, this time suffering a compound fracture of one arm. With magnificent fortitude he bound a rifle stock to his shattered arm as a splint and then crawled 300 yards over rough terrain to the aid station. Through his outstanding bravery and unflinching determination in the face of desperately dangerous conditions Pfc. Doss saved the lives of many soldiers. His name became a symbol throughout the 77th Infantry Division for outstanding gallantry far above and beyond the call of duty.

      Other honors and recognition...


      Juan Davalos, a callow youth can be excused for also being a pontificating prig, but Desmond Doss puts to a lie everything Jaun said above. There is room for an alternate course for those who choose it.

      The first couple sentences in Juan's article should have alerted you.

      The president-elect will soon be either Hillary Clinton or Donald J. Trump. It is time for Americans to accept this and deliberate on how they will fulfill their political duty.

      The context would indicate what Juan is talking about the 'duty' to vote. In reading further into the article, you see that what he is really saying is the 'duty' to vote for either Trump or Hillary.

      Voting is a right and privilege but there is no duty to vote and certainly no legal or moral obligation to do so, at least not in the US. There are a few countries that demand that all citizens vote but not that many. I can only assume it is under the mistaken assumption that the process is politically enlightening or it expands democracy somehow (sorry Sam). However, do we really want that portion of the populace that is uninformed and unwilling to learn about the political workings in this country to be voting, going to the polls and checking off boxes just so they can get one more government demand handled and out of the way? It's Pollyannish to assume that everyone will care enough to enlighten themselves on the alternatives or to do so in more than a cursory manner. Would they wait until the last minute and watch a few TV ads? And if they did what would they see? Discussion of the issues? Absurd. They would see the same negative ads we are inundated with today.

      Juan's article goes along making the same type mistakes with his assumption, word meanings, and statement of 'facts'.

    1. A few weeks ago I met a guy in Idaho who was absolutely certain that Donald Trump would win this election. He was wearing tattered, soiled overalls, missing a bunch of teeth and was unnaturally skinny. He was probably about 50, but his haggard face looked 70. He was getting by aimlessly as a handyman.

      I pointed to the polls and tried to persuade him that Hillary Clinton might win, but it was like telling him a seagull could play billiards.
      ---
      Now, if you wanted to design a personality type perfectly ill suited to be a change agent in government, you would come up with Donald Trump: solipsistic, impatient, combative, unsubtle and ignorant.

      If you wanted to design a personality type better suited to getting things done, you might come up with James Baker, Robert Gates or Ted Kennedy, but you might also come up with Hillary Clinton.

      But Clinton does possess the steady, pedantic skills that are necessary for governmental change: the ability to work doggedly hard, to master details and to rally the powerful. If the Clinton campaign emails have taught us anything, it is that she and her team, while not hugely creative, are prudent, calculating and able to create a web of interlocking networks that they can mobilize for a cause.

      Clinton was at her best in the Senate. She worked very well with Republicans (and not just the amenable ones like John McCain and Lindsey Graham). She was an operations person, not a publicity person. Whereas Barack Obama sometimes seemed to see his fellow politicians as objects to be studied, Clinton got on with them as an equal. Her accomplishments — post-9/11 funding for New York, saving Army bases in upstate New York — were concrete.

      Passing legislation next year is going to be hard, but if Clinton can be dull and pragmatic, and operate at a level below the cable TV ideology wars, it's possible to imagine her gathering majorities behind laws that would help people like that guy in Idaho...

  24. But of course, Team Clinton didn’t object to Comey’s violating protocol July 5 when he announced he wouldn’t recommend criminal charges against Clinton for violating e-mail rules and lying repeatedly about it. He said that “no reasonable prosecutor” would bring such a case, even though no reasonable judge would quash an indictment under Title 18, Section 793(f) of U.S. Code based on the facts he alleged.

    My theory is that Comey was placed in an impossible position by the June 27 Phoenix tarmac meeting between former president Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch, a meeting that was surely intended to be secret but was revealed apparently because a TV reporter had a good source in the private jet terminal.

    By meeting with the spouse of a candidate under criminal investigation, Lynch revealed herself to be a political hack. Her Justice Department’s refusal to summon a grand jury and sweetheart deals with key witnesses strengthen that view.

    So Comey, head of an investigative agency, was obliged to make a decision that would ordinarily be made by a prosecutor. Like a local judge asked to enjoin a party’s national convention delegates, he evidently didn’t consider it his job to determine who should be a presidential nominee. Team Clinton cheered that violation of protocol. The October 28 letter required a 1984-style flip-flop from those in the Clinton camp. They said, in effect, “We have always been at war with the protocol-violating James Comey.”

    Rigged from the beginning of her Democratic party fight with socialist Bernie Sanders and rigged through friendly media as evidenced by CNN's disastrous relationship with Democratic Party boss Donna Brazile.

    And now in the final hours of this terribly ugly and divisive presidential campaign, it becomes clear to many that an inside game has been played on her behalf through President Barack Obama's Department of Justice and its fight with the FBI.

  28. A survey covering 12 weeks of the campaign after the summer conventions found that 91 percent of Trump coverage on the three largest broadcast networks was “hostile.” The Media Research Center also found that much of the focus was on Trump’s personal life, while the networks downplayed investigations into Clinton’s emails and her family foundation.

    Thanks to WikiLeaks, we have irrefutable evidence that none of this is based on journalism standards. Rather, it reflects the incestuous relationship between liberal members of elite media organizations and the Democratic Party.

    The alliance mocks any claims that the media are independent.

    SOUL SEARCHING Researchers claim that humans have souls which can live on after death

    The idea that human consciousness lives on after death has been put forward by a number of well-respected scientists


    VIDEO
    BY GEORGE HARRISON 5th November 2016, 5:36 pm

    SCIENTISTS have claimed that death may not be as final as we once feared – and that humans have souls that can leave the body after their hosts kick the bucket.

    It may sound like a supernatural myth, but the idea that human consciousness lives on after death has been put forward by a number of well-respected scientists.


    British physicist Sir Roger Penrose explains how the human conscious lives on after death
    And the British scientist at the forefront of the eerie theory claims that humans have souls which don't die along with the body.

    We many not know exactly what consciousness is, but physicist Sir Roger Penrose believes that it's just a packet of information stored at a quantum - or sub-atomic - level.

    Sensationally, he claims to have found evidence that this information, which is stored in microtubules within human cells, leaves the body after a person dies.

    The researchers argue that humans have souls which leave the body upon death, and can live on without it forever

    The researchers argue that humans have souls which leave the body upon death, and can live on without it forever
    Sir Roger has argued that when a person dies temporarily, this quantum information is released into the universe, only to return to the body's cells if the host is brought back to life.

    He argues that this explains why people can have near-death experiences, and believes that this quantum information amounts to a soul leaving the body.

    The physics expert said: "If the patient dies, it's possible that this quantum information can exist outside the body, perhaps indefinitely, as a soul."

    Sir Roger claims to have found evidence that human consciousness can live on after a person dies CLOSER TO TRUTH

    Sir Roger claims to have found evidence that human consciousness can live on after a person dies
    And Sir Roger is not alone in believing this, since his theory is backed by researchers at the renowned Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich.

    Experts there argue that our physical universe is just a perception, and that once our bodies die there is an infinite life beyond.....

    1. Reno, Nevada (CNN)Donald Trump on Saturday was rushed off the stage by Secret Service agents in the middle of a campaign speech here after an incident in the crowd near the front of the stage.

      It was not immediately clear what happened, and a spokesman for the Secret Service did not immediately have information.
      The Republican nominee returned to the stage several minutes later.

      "Nobody said it was going to be easy for us, but we will never be stopped. We will never be stopped. I want to thank the Secret Service. These guys are fantastic.”

      He then returned to his regular stump speech.

      Moments after Trump was rushed off stage, a SWAT unit of police officers showed up at the front of the crowd.
      At least one man was detained and carried away by police officers and Secret Service agents.

      Several attendees at the rally said they saw a Trump supporter raise up a sign and then a scuffle ensued.

  39. AMES, Iowa – Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders narrowly finished second this winter in the state’s Democratic caucuses, then left Iowa in a February snowstorm as a contender. He returned Saturday on a warm autumn day to Iowa State University as a surrogate, offering his young, fervent supporters a more difficult pitch -- vote for Hillary Clinton.

    Some of his devotees remain unconvinced, even those the Clinton campaign selected to speak at this Clinton campaign event.

    “She doesn't care about us. Voting for a lesser of two evils, there's no point,” Kaleb Van Fosson, a sophomore and Sanders supporter, said to the small crowd.

    After drawing light applause, Clinton campaign staff quickly escorted Van Fosson from the stage, as he criticized Clinton for her ties to financial institutions.

    “I got a call the other day asking me if I wanted to speak for Hillary, basically they wanted to use me like a puppet,” Van Fosson told Fox News. “Trump’s not any better, but Hillary Clinton is still terrible.”

    Others in attendance agreed with Van Fosson, though most in the crowd appeared supportive of the Democratic nominee.

    'I saw what you were doing. That's a tough group of people right that... Nobody messes with our people, right?'
    Trump then returned to his regular speech.
    Federal agents and tactical officers from Reno Police removed the man and placed him in a bathroom near a secure entrance where Trump's motorcade and the press vehicles were staged.
    Two audience members told DailyMail.com that they had seen the man holding a firearm. That has not been confirmed by law enforcement.
    As police and good Samaritans took him down, the crowd surged backward and strained against the press section.
    'CNN sucks!' one man yelled. 'You people caused this!'
    Audience members at the front of the crowd reportedly said they saw the man raise up a sign before a scuffle ensued.
    Saturday's incident marked the second time Secret Service had to intervene to get Trump out of harm's way.
    In March a man leaped over a police barricade during a Trump rally at an airport hangar in Dayton, Ohio.
    The man,Thomas Dimassimo, was charged with disorderly conduct and inciting panic, but he never reached the stage. Secret Service tackled him when he was still several yards away from the candidate.
    'I was ready for him, but it’s much easier if the cops do it, don’t we agree?' Trump said at the time.
    'And to think I had such an easy life! What do I need this for, right?'
    At this time a motive is not clear.

  43. Clinton foundation admits receiving $1mn donation from Qatar that it previously hid

    Published time: 5 Nov, 2016 14:42

    On the heels of damning WikiLeaks revelations, the Clinton Foundation has confirmed allegations that it received a $1 million ‘gift’ from Qatar without telling the State Department, breaking a signed agreement requiring it to reveal all foreign donations.
    The payment, which was first revealed in an email exchange with Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta a month ago, has just been officially confirmed by the Foundation. The check was reportedly a gift to former President Bill Clinton in 2011 for his 65h birthday. A meeting was to take place between him and Qatari officials at some point, according to an email published last month. It is not clear if this ever took place, however.

    Earlier in 2009, when Clinton became Secretary of State, she had to sign an agreement to prevent any conflicts of interest which stipulated that her influential global foundation could not receive any support from foreign sources without her notifying the State Department, according to Reuters. This was intended to ensure transparency and combat public perception that US foreign policy could be dictated by foreign money.

  44. April 2015: Clinton adviser warns some questions about the Clinton Foundation don’t have “great answers”

    In an email exchange from April 2015, Clinton campaign staffers discussed how the Democratic candidate should respond to questions about the Clinton Foundation and any accusations that she engaged in quid pro quo agreements with donors.

    One suggestion that was floated: Clinton would tape a video.

    Jennifer Palmieri, communications director for Hillary Clinton, shot that down, saying, “I don’t think it is good idea for her to do” because “[t]here aren’t great answers and in many cases not her place to answer them.”

    “I think it does make sense for her to publicly state that she never did anything at state to help a donor,” Palmieri wrote, before admitting that some people donating to the philanthropic organization may have had “bad intentions.”

    “At least this way she will have taken off the table any notion that there was a quid pro quo,” she said, “even if some donors may have had bad intentions.”

  46. And what is Hillary doing up in Michigan ?

    She's running scared.

    And uninformed too.

    Doesn't she realize "Q" has the State all locked up ?

    Or, is it the State that has "Q" all locked up ?

    1. "Q" faced riot and incitement to riot charges in 27 Michigan cities before his reign of terror came to an end via arrest.

      He is claiming his 1st Amendment Rights, and also, remaining silent, for once.

    The Clintons: America's Borgias

    By Patricia McCarthy

    With the election just a few days away, considering all the information that has been dribbling out about the Clintons and the criminal enterprise that is the Clinton Foundation, in the emails from Podesta's Gmail account and the State Department, and Anthony Weiner's laptop, it is inevitable that people may compare the Clintons to the Borgias. The Borgias were the Italian-Spanish family of the Renaissance era who attained great power but were perhaps the most corrupt political family in world history – until now.

    The Borgias corrupted the Catholic Church as well as the body politic of their realm. Like the Clintons, they were, above all, only interested in accumulating wealth and power for themselves and their children. They obeyed no laws, lived by no rules, that applied to others.


    Rodrigo Borgia bribed his way to the papacy in 1492 and was a preview of Bill Clinton: charming, witty, and an inveterate womanizer. Like Bill Clinton, he sought powerful office for what he could get out of it, not because of any religious fervor (in Rodrigo's case) or love of country. He became pope to become rich and powerful. He was a capable leader, but his rule was tainted by his constant debauchery.

    Like Bill Clinton, Rodrigo was a serial adulterer. He had numerous children by several women, as Bill Clinton might have had in the 15th century. Had Bill Clinton behaved then as he has in the 20th century, he would most likely have contracted syphilis and been disfigured by it, as was Rodrigo's son, Cesare. Cesare Borgia was famous for hosting Sunday suppers with fifty prostitutes or courtesans in attendance, who would dance naked for him and his guests. This sounds much like the purported goings on at Bill's penthouse at the Clinton Library in Arkansas and on Jeffrey Epstein's "Orgy Island," to which Bill Clinton has traveled to at least 26 times. Anthony Weiner's perversions are now well known, and WikiLeaks emails prove that the Clinton camp has known of them for at least five years and did nothing to stop him. Our modern-day Borgias are a sybaritic bunch as well.

    The Borgias were also known for their cruelty and murder. While never proven, Cesare likely murdered his older brother. Many more assassinations were carried out in the family's quest to control all the papal states. In short, the Borgias let nothing stand in the way of their determination to amass wealth and power.

    The essential facts of the family's history are uncannily similar to the Clintons. Over their thirty-five years on our political stage, the Clintons have indulged in all manner of skullduggery on their way to the White House the first time, and they are doing it again. They lie, cheat, steal, threaten, bribe, and manipulate in the corridors of power and in the backrooms of campaign offices. They seem able to control nearly all the institutions of power meant to be non-partisan and that, for the previous two hundred and twenty years or so, were bound by the Constitution: the Department of Justice, the FBI, the NSA, the IRS, etc. All of these agencies have been corrupted by the Clintons and their sycophants. If Hillary is elected, they will not alter their political style one bit. She will continue to sell her influence to the highest bidders around the world, the American people be damned.

    1. Plans are likely in the works to one day install Chelsea Clinton in the White House. She lacks the legendary charms of Lucrezia Borgia, but that will make no difference, because the fix will have been set in stone years in advance. Cesare Borgia blamed his own depravity on the "mark of Borgia," the stain of his family. Chelsea already bears the mark of Clinton; she married into a family of wealth and criminality, her father-in-law having served five years in a federal prison for fraud.

      Donald Trump just may be the divine intervention necessary to stop this deplorable family from wreaking further damage on the United States.

    The man was said in one report to have had a gun.

  50. My son and I were discussing the relative merits of having The Mafia, or The Clinton Criminal Gang, running the country.

    After much discussion we both came down on the side of The Mafia, for:

    1) competence

    2) compassion

    3) honor among thieves.
