Clinton Foundation’s “pay-to-play” structure becoming clearer

Clinton Foundation’s “pay-to-play” structure becoming clearer

The recent release of additional private emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email servers based at her New York home provide a clearer picture of the “pay-to-play” connections between Clinton’s State Department, her and her husband’s and daughter’s Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative, and the private investment consulting and investment firm of Teneo Holdings, Inc. in Manhattan. In addition to these entities, there are separate Clinton family foundations that maintain their own revenue streams: the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton (BHCC) Foundation, the Clinton Foundation Hong Kong, William J. Clinton Foundation Charitable Trust (Kenya), William J. Clinton Foundation Charitable Trust (UK), and the Clinton Foundation Insalingsstiftelse (Sweden). All these entities maintain separate operations for the Clintons’ pay-to-play global racketeering operations.

The Clinton operations are massive in relation to the reported lobbying dealings that Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, maintained with the former Yanukovych government of Ukraine. The sudden appearance of “secret ledgers” containing Manafort’s name and alleged cash payments to him by the puppet Ukrainian government of George Soros bear all the signs of another Soros/Cass Sunstein disinformation operation.

This Is Why America Is Bringing “Freedom” To The Middle East


This Is Why America Is Bringing “Freedom” To The Middle East

Submitted by Jim Quinn via The Burning Platform blog,

I can’t figure out why we are so concerned about the Middle East. Can you?

If we are swimming in shale oil and our future is driver-less electric cars, why are we so concerned about the Middle East?

After 15 years in Afghanistan, the opium crop is at record high levels. How could that be? I thought we were there to modernize and democratize their country. At least heroine in the U.S. is now cheaper than a happy meal at McDonalds.

We’ll start with the obvious: the number one export for many countries here is crude oil or related petroleum products. Middle Eastern countries made up a significant portion of global oil export revenues during 2015 with shipments valued at $325 billion or 41.3% of global crude oil exports.

Saudi Arabia, Iraq, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Iran, and Oman were all among the top 15 exporters of crude oil in 2015. Russia and Kazakhstan, countries on the Central Asian part of the map, were also members of that same group.

Regimes in the region found that there were many other corollary benefits from this economic might. Unrest could be stifled by rising wealth, and these countries would also have more influence than they otherwise would in global affairs. Saudi Arabia is a good example in both cases, though a major driver of Saudi influence has been slipping in recent years.

Outside of Oil

Aside from exports of oil, there are some other interesting subtleties to this map. One of the most advanced economies in the region, Israel, is not dependent on oil exports at all. The country has had to find other ways to create value in the global market and its three major exports include electronics and software, cut diamonds, and pharmaceuticals.

War-torn Afghanistan, which is not a significant producer of petroleum on the world market, gets the majority of its export revenue from different natural resource. Opium is Afghanistan’s most valuable cash crop, and opiates such as opium, morphine, and heroin are its largest export. Fetching an estimated value of $3 billion at border prices, it was estimated to make up about 15% of the country’s GDP equivalent in 2013.

Lastly, countries on the map without oil wealth tend to be less influential on the world stage from a geopolitical perspective. Armenia, for example, mainly exports pig iron, unwrought copper, and nonferrous metals and is the world’s 138th largest exporter by dollar value, ranked in between Jamaica and Swaziland. Surrounded geographically by countries that Yerevan considers hostile, Armenia has increasingly turned to Russia for its support.

US Troops Caught In Libya On Frontline With ISIS


US Troops Caught In Libya On Frontline With ISIS

US military personnel are carrying out patrols and observations in Misrata, according to Libyan soldiers on the ground, amid growing reports of Western special forces engaged in the battle to remove Islamic State from the central city of Sirte.

“There are some US troops on the ground here, near the frontline,” one Misratan soldier, Ibrahim, told MEE. “Everyone here has seen them, but they are not fighting, they are just observing and doing patrols.”

He said there were at least six or seven personnel, who he described as well-armed and well-equipped, with three Japanese vehicles that were noticeably superior to the usual Toyota Hilux trucks favoured by the Libyan armed forces. The US personnel were in occasional communication with one or two very senior Misratan commanders, Ibrahim added.

Mohamed al-Ghossri, the spokesman for the Misrata military operations room, said he was unable to confirm or deny any US military presence, because he had not personally seen them.

He did, however, plead for the international community to support Libya’s fight against IS, which now controls over 300km of central coastline, and numerous towns and villages.

“Until now, we have had only moral support from the international community, but we need logistical support,” he said. “We particularly need night vision equipment because we are fighting a very dangerous and unpredictable enemy, who mobilise mainly at night.”

He said the weapons Misratan troops were using – mainly from former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s stockpiles, and often dating back to the 1980s – were inadequate for fighting IS, which appears to have extensive supplies of high-tech weaponry and ammunition.

“We want technical support from the international community so we can defend the Mediterranean basin, as well as our borders against further infiltration of IS fighters,” he explained.

“We are expecting some concrete help from the UK, but we need support from all the international community, especially NATO, because we are fighting against the main enemy of the whole world,” Ghossri said.

“The EU don’t seem to understand what’s happening here. They talk a lot about the IS attacks in Europe, but every single Misrata checkpoint has been attacked by IS, some of them more than once. The IS presence in Libya is a very dangerous and urgent matter for the whole world.”

Middle East Eye has reached out to the US Department of Defense for comment.

COVERT OPERATIONS

The revelation about the involvement of US troops in the fight against IS came as representatives of world powers gathered in Vienna to discuss international support for Libya’s new UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) and amid mounting reports of covert operations by Western special forces inside Libya.   ****(THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE US FOREIGN POLICY IS FINANCING ISIS WITH ALL THE LATEST ARMS SOMETHING THIS ARTICLE DOES NOT MENTION)

In March, Middle East Eye revealed that British and Jordanian special forces were working together in covert operations against IS, while in February Reuters reported that elite French troops were advising Libyan troops in the east about how to take on IS.

Last week, the Washington Post quoted unnamed American officials who confirmed two teams of under 25 troops had been deployed to the cities of Misrata and Benghazi to “identify potential ­allies among local armed factions and gather intelligence on threats”.

The reported deployment coincided with Misratan forces launching a strong counter-offensive against IS, after losing their easternmost position at AbuGrain, 100km from Misrata, which IS attacked with a suicide bomb and some 100 vehicles. The surprise attack also saw Misrata lose control of its main route and supply line to southern Libya, where it has had forces stationed for several years.

“Our troops were forced back to Saddadah [80 km from Misrata], but they have now reclaimed the AbuGrain checkpoint,” Ghossri said. “We opened up two frontlines, from the east and the south of AbuGrain and were able to lay siege to the enemy, so that area is now back under our control.”

Despite Misrata’s airpower being limited to small aircraft designed to train pilots, he said a sustained campaign of aerial bombardment and heavy artillery fire had paved the way for a successful ground offensive.

Ghossri said the advanced frontline was now beyond the AbuGrain checkpoint, but said bomb disposal teams were now trying to deal with the mines and IEDs IS had planted across the area, after one soldier was killed and several injured when they detonated a mine. The booby traps included deep-covered pits which were filled with explosives near the AbuGrain checkpoint.

Ghossri said that fighting in the last week had left at least 12 dead and some 40 people injured, 13 of whom were transferred to Italy on Friday for medical treatment. IS losses had been substantially greater, he claimed, although he was not able to give exact figures.

“When our fighters advanced, they found that the bodies of the enemy had been burnt, sometimes in piles under vehicles, so we can’t estimate how many were killed, but they had a lot of losses.”

The Misrata military operations room is now working under the GNA, although Libya’s two other rival governments – based in the east and west respectively – both continue to operate. Misrata has a mandate from the GNA to advance towards Sirte’s district borders, but not to attempt to enter the town itself.

FEARS OVER DIVIDED ANTI-IS FORCES

In a separate operation, Libyan armed forces led by General Khalifa Haftar and working under the government in the east announced the start of an operation to liberate Sirte from IS earlier this month.

Named “Gardabiya 2,” after a Libyan victory over Italian forces that took place in the same area in 1915, the operation is in the preliminary stages and troops have amassed at positions in Libya’s central Saharan Desert, from where they plan to launch their offensive.

Armed forces loyal to these two rival governments have been engaged in civil conflict for over two years. Now they are both starting to fight against IS, but are moving towards Sirte from opposite directions and with fiercely divided loyalties, there are concerns amongst local people that they will end up fighting one another rather than IS.

“Now we have three governments, it’s all about military power as well as political power because whoever has the power on the ground, also holds the political power,” said Mohamed, a Sirte businessman.

“My biggest concern is that the armies from the east and west will end up fighting each other, which would only be good news for IS, which will continue to get stronger.”

Troops from eastern Libya have already clashed in the south with a rogue militia from western Libya, the exact origins and allegiances of which remain unclear.

Ghossri said that there were no communications between Haftar’s troops and the Misrata military operations room, but insisted that any soldiers would be welcome to join its fight, as long as they recognised the GNA, which the powers in the east have yet to do.

“We are all Libyans, we have the same nationality, the same state, the same country and now we have a common enemy so we should fight together,” he explained.

“We are facing a battle for Libya, not just a battle for Misrata as before, so any troops under the new government would be welcomed by us.”

Critical Update on Benghazi- CIA Confirms That Obama & Hillary are Traitors


Critical Update on Benghazi- CIA Confirms That Obama & Hillary are Traitors

This was released back in May of 2015, but I somehow missed it (no doubt because of my trial). But investigators have finally obtained secret reports from the Obama administration (by suing them in court) that prove that Obama, Hillary and all the talking heads from the top to the bottom outright lied to the American People. They knew the attacks were imminent 10 days before they happened. That means that moving our soldiers away from the embassy was treason and murder.

The CIA reports also show that the attacks were specifically in retaliation for the assassination of a terrorist leader and specifically in memorial of 9/11. There was absolutely no mention of any movie. Thus, the lies told about the movie were intentional.

This means that Obama and his entire administration, including General Dempsey lied to President Karzai of Afghanistan about the movie who then sent warning throughout his nation which spread throughout the Middle East- thus sending rage throughout the Muslim population. This led to more embassy attacks and riots. This also places the blame for the resulting fear, rage and uncertainty about whether other embassies would also be attacked directly on the intentional lies told by Obama, Hillary, Dempsey and others. This is treason that led to American deaths and violence in the Middle East. One must ask what motive they had.

One need not look any further than our own borders for the answer. The ensuing attacks and uncertainly of more attacks on U.S. embassies overseas led to the overturning of the decision to strike down the NDAA 2012 bill. “What is that?”, you might ask. NDAA 2012 is one of the most important pieces of legislature that has passed under Obama. Thanks to our state controlled media, most Americans don’t know anything about it.

It was passed on New Year’s Eve under the noses of the American People in the guise of a yearly funding bill for the military. However, it actually gives massive, unconstitutional authority to the president, without any approval of Congress and without oversight from any elected official, to use the entire might of the U.S. military against any American citizen on American soil. This bill was struck down as unconstitutional because it directly violates the Posse Comitatus Act, a critical part of American legislation, passed in 1878. It was due to be finalized exactly on Sept. 12, 2012 when the Benghazi nightmare ‘happened’ on Sept 11, 2012. (Remember, the Obama administration had been preparing for this since Jan 13, 2012 when the legal challenge was issued. They had time to plan this move.) Obama’s attorneys argued that domestic terrorists here at home might also react in rage and violence because of the movie and needed the right to use the U.S. military on domestic soil. Obama got a federal judge to STAY the finalization of the first federal judge’s order to strike NDAA 2012 as unconstitutional on Sept 13, 2012. It remains in legal limbo today which basically means that it is still legal. In other words, Benghazi ensured that Obama (and Hillary- because you know she will win) retains the power to arrest Christians, deny them all their constitutional rights and make them disappear forever without needing permission from anyone.)

Do you all understand the crimes committed in Benghazi and why it was done? NDAA 2012 is that important. Killing the ambassador and embassy workers was just a necessity to the media drama. Without the dead bodies, no one would pay enough attention and the bill injunction wouldn’t get stayed. People needed to really believe that terror could spread to U.S. shores. The violence caused by the movie rumor (most Muslims never saw the silly trailer- (no movie even existed) was also necessary to create the appropriate rage. Lying to President Karzai was a necessity, too, because you need a Muslim spreading the panic too. Oh, and getting the media to interview the pastor in Florida who burned the Koran was delightful, too. Just to add fuel to the fire- even though he had nothing to do with the infantile movie trailer. That was just to make even more Muslims as mad as possible- it was all one big lie. In hindsight, each one of these lies has only one thing in common- get as many Muslims as mad as possible in order to incite as much violence on American targets as possible. The goal: get a federal judge to stay the first federal judge’s injunction and keep it legal. Result of Benghazi: 4 Americans dead and NDAA 2012 is still alive. To Progressives: an acceptable loss for a powerful result.

Being allowed to use our military against American citizens here at home is key to overthrowing our nation’s constitution and turning this nation into a dictatorship– or whatever else a powerful group of individual wants. Add media control, internet control, quasi-digitized money and a powerful Progressive morality/loss of Christian values to the general population and you have a very ripe situation for the plucking.

All the proof is right there in black and white in the CIA reports. And yet, where are the Congressional hearings for the president, Hillary, Dempsey, Susan Rice, etc? Each and everyone of them are guilty of treason. The news did a story, but why did it die such a quiet death? Because the media is controlled and Americans are asleep. It is so sad. We deserve what we are getting. That is all I can say.
