Hoping to manage a piece of the $3 trillion-state pension fund jackpot, financial firms have found their way around an anti-corruption rule.
An honest look at election law reveals outright bias and little interest in the principles of Democracy. Freedom, justice and equality for all are blocked at virtually every level of federal, state and local when it comes to qualifying for being on the ballot. It is like there is a lock on the system. No, there is a lock on the system.
The political organization of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, an influential Democrat with longstanding ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, gave nearly $500,000 to the election campaign of the wife of an official at the Federal Bureau of Investigation who later helped oversee the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s email use.
Hillary just can’t stop lying. This means she used a lot of people who thought that they were being considered for VP selection by Clinton. That includes Elizabeth Warren. Who was obviously campaigning for the job:
A conversation between Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and political consultant Erick Mullen leaked by WikiLeaks suggests that Tim Kaine — and Hillary Clinton — lied to the American people about the Virginia senator’s selection as Clinton’s running mate. In the email, Mullen complains to Podesta that attorney Bob Glennon “won’t stop assuring Sens Brown and Heitkamp (at dinner now) that HRC has personally told Tim Kaine he’s the veep.” The email was sent on July 15, 2015 — over one full year before the campaign’s official announcement. Clinton announced Kaine’s selection on July 22, 2016. The Clinton campaign behaved as if it were still sifting through possible VP picks until practically that very day. “Just got off the phone with Hillary. I’m honored to be her running mate. Can’t wait to hit the trail tomorrow in Miami!” Kaine tweeted. Kaine suggested at one point that he only knew of his selection 48 hours before the official announcement.
Maybe our armed forces are tired of Hillary’s warmongering:
The poll found that officers are also less likely to vote for Trump than enlisted personnel, with only 26 percent pledging support to the Republican candidate. Among this group, Johnson and Clinton are neck-and-neck, both carrying around 31 percent of the voting bloc.
A culture of corruption:
Top Hillary Clinton aides in April 2015 decided to accept money raised by lobbyists representing foreign interests despite the potential political fallout and without telling Clinton, according to newly leaked emails.
This could be the biggest bombshell of them all:
Bill Clinton’s most-trusted confidant complained the former president had several conflicts of interest regarding his controversial namesake foundation, according to purported emails released this month by WikiLeaks.
The emails, stolen by hackers from Hillary Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta’s Gmail account, come from a particularly rocky period internally for the Clinton Foundation during late 2011 and early 2012. That’s when Clinton Foundation offshoot the Clinton Global Initiative and a new business started by top Clinton aide Doug Band, Teneo Holdings, were creating friction with each other — as employees struggled to figure out just how closely the entities should be associated. Much of the concern stemmed from Band and Clinton’s dual positions with Teneo and CGI.
Trump might be speaking out of self interest. But he is right about the dangers of all these media mergers that concentrate the industry in a few corporate hands. America is going down the proverbial toilet precisely because media, thus journalism, have been homogenized for the purpose of profit only. They are not serving the public. This explains, ironically enough, why we have the scum of the earth representing the Democrats and Republicans. Voters are not be informed:
Speaking in Pennsylvania on Saturday, Donald Trump railed against media mergers involving news outlets that have been critical of him, threatening to completely weaken the media “power structure.” In explaining his proposed actions against certain media companies, Trump said,“They’re trying desperately to suppress my vote and the voice of the American people.” “As an example of the power structure I’m fighting, AT&T is buying Time Warner and thus CNN, a deal we will not approve in my administration because it’s too much concentration of power in the hands of too few,” he said. The proposed merger, announced Friday, saw AT&T agree in principle to buy Time Warner for about $85 billion. “Deals like this destroy democracy,” Trump said of the proposed merger. He went on to say he’d like to “break” the Comcast/NBC Universal merger completed in 2013. He also slammed Amazon, saying that “Amazon, which through its ownership controls Washington Post, should be paying massive taxes but its not paying, and it’s a very unfair playing field … very very unfair and you are talking about billions and billions of dollars.” Washington Post has been relentless in its criticism of Trump throughout the campaign, and CNN has also offered critical coverage.
The authorities in North Dakota have obviously decided that the best way to stop the protests is by targeting journalists. Well, it won’t work. The movement is getting stronger:
Over the last month, various law enforcement agencies, private mercenary organizations, and other DAPL assets, have expanded their aerial surveillance, “information” checkpoints, and use of heavily armed riot police backed by MRAP‘s and Bearcat armored vehicles. Amidst the militarized crackdown on demonstrations against the pipeline, hundreds of people have been arrested, including four Unicorn Riot journalists.
Donald Trump is pointing to a stream of hacked emails as proof that Hillary Clinton would be a compromised president, but a surprising number of progressives are drawing similar conclusions — albeit for totally different reasons.
Some of the left’s most influential voices and groups are taking offense at the way they and their causes were discussed behind their backs by Clinton and some of her closest advisers in the emails, which swipe liberal heroes and causes as “puritanical,” “pompous”, “naive”, “radical” and “dumb,” calling some “freaks,” who need to “get a life.”
It’s why the economy is doing as well as it is. Raising the minimum puts money in people’s pockets and they buy things with it. Obama likes to take credit but it’s the states that deserve the credit. Better yet, it’s the “Fight for $15” movement that should get the credit:
But a funny thing happened on Seattle’s way to economic collapse: the city thrived. Restaurants didn’t close — they actually prospered — and new restaurant openings rose. Unemployment fell, most recently to less than 4 percent, more than a full percentage point lower than the national rate. By all accounts, the city on the Puget Sound is booming.
Just another horrible Clinton crime ignored by the mainstream press:
Hours before the third and final presidential debate, Leslie Millwee, a former TV news reporter for a local station in Arkansas, accused Bill Clinton of sexually assaulting her three times in 1980, while he was governor, Breitbart News reported.
Millwee said that all of the incidents occurred while she was working on a story in the station’s tiny editing room. Two of the three assaults, she added, involved then-Gov. Clinton rubbing his genitalia against her.
Good reporting revealed that Coca-Cola funds researchers, health organizations, nutrition professionals and community groups in an effort to blame obesity on a lack of physical activity, rather than diet. Hacked emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign staff, posted recently on DCLeaks, reveal that Coke works hard to influence politicians, journalists and bloggers, as well.
Russ Greene, who blogs for CrossFit was among the first to review the hacked emails and report on Coke’s apparent strategy to influence Clinton and others. Ninjas for Health followed up with a Medium post, outlining Coke’s worldwide strategy to kill soda taxes. Politico’s Helena Evich outlined the email trail that demonstrated Coke’s cozy relationship with the Clinton campaign.
This article appears a news outlet that cannot be dismissed as being Republican or Pro-Trump. That’s what makes so damning. Why can’t the rest of the “press” wise up to the evil which are the Clintons:
If not for the fact that her opponent is Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton would almost certainly be losing this election. As it is, Republicans have hardly had a chance to capitalize on Clinton’s multitudinous e-mail scandals, so busy have they been defending and apologizing for their gaffe-prone presidential nominee. In a more ordinary year, WikiLeaks’s “October Surprise” might have been the nail in the coffin for the Democrats’ unusually unpopular candidate. Instead, the trove of stolen e-mails released by the anti-secrecy organization have mostly gotten lost amid Trump’s horrific sexual-harassment and -assault allegations. Still, the latest leaked campaign documents are damning in their revelation that the Clintons are exactly what their nemeses always feared: back-stabbing, calculating, venal, opportunistic. Regaining the public trust will be an uphill battle, and perhaps an impossible one, in this political environment.
Essentially he is being harassed for walking while be black. And once again we have a brave citizen video taping police abuse:
According to Rowles’ summary of the incident, a man—identified as Larnie Thomas in the same NAACP statement—was walking along a white line that marked the shoulder of the road because the sidewalk on that side of the street was blocked off due to construction work. An unmarked police vehicle pulled in front of him, according to Janet’s summary, blocking his path forward. The video begins after an officer in plain clothes has already detained Thomas, who is black, and is leading him by the coat jacket to his SUV. The officer was identified later as Tim Olson.
Now we have definitive proof as to why the mainstream press ignores or downplays the Clinton scandals.
A nonpartisan group finds 19 out of every 20 campaign dollars donated by the media industry are being given to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
The analysis was conducted by the Center for Public Integrity, and it found that 96 percent of campaign donations by roughly 480 media donors went to Clinton. Roughly 430 media people donated $382,000 to Clinton, while roughly 40 media people donated $14,000 to Donald Trump’s campaign.
This is corruption at it’s worst. This news outlet had the decency to report on it for change. But the rest of the mainstream media just focuses on the “real evil”–Donald Trump. Sadly it might take an impeachment of a President Hillary Clinton to end this madness.
The nexus among private companies, Hillary Clinton’s State Department and the Clinton family foundations is closer and more complex than even Donald Trump has claimed so far.
While it is widely known that some companies and foreign governments gave money to the foundations, perhaps in an effort to gain favor, one of the key parts of the puzzle hasn’t been reported: At least a dozen of those same companies lobbied the State Department, using lobbyists who doubled as major Clinton campaign fundraisers.
And, of course, there was almost no coverage of this outrageous attack on press freedom by the mainstream media:
A North Dakota judge has dismissed the “riot” charges against Amy Goodman for covering the protests against the Dakota Access pipeline.
The behavior of the mainstream press during this presidential election year is unprecedented. They’ve come to Hillary Clinton’s defense without regard concerning themselves with appearances. Their supposed commitment to being unbiased has gone completely out the window. FOX (which supports Trump), CNN, MSNBC, NY Times, Washington Post, etc., are no different in their blatant support for either major party presidential candidate:
The blizzard of WikiLeaks revelations of collusion between the “mainstream media” and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign – working hand-in-hand behind the scenes to destroy Donald Trump and return the Clintons to the White House – are highly disturbing, but not at all surprising. Here’s why.
According to OBGYN physician Tamika Cross, a man nearly died during a flight when the plane attendants refused to believe she was a doctor. The reason? She is African-American and was departing from Detroit. The conclusions the Delta employees jumped to has infuriated many, causing Cross’s Facebook post to go viral.
The death of mainstream media is upon us. A recent Gallup poll showed that over 77% of Americans distrust mainstream television news channels as well as newspapers. Though these startling numbers should be cause for worry, it has failed to dissuade most media outlets from accelerating their spectacular decline into nothing more than propagandist, government […]
This shows Hillary Clinton in her true light: a friend of the fossil fuel industry:
At a meeting with environmentalists last year in which they probed Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on renouncing fossil fuels, the former secretary of state dismissed the activists saying they should “get a life.” The revelation came about when WikiLeaks dumped more emails from the accounts of Clinton aide John Podesta on Saturday.
A section of Clinton’s meeting with the building trades union in September last year was made public Saturday where she said she defended natural gas and fracking “under the right circumstances.” The meeting occurred at a time when she was fighting a challenge from Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“Bernie Sanders is getting lots of support from the most radical environmentalists because he’s out there every day bashing the Keystone pipeline. And, you know, I’m not into it for that,” Clinton said at the meeting, according to transcripts. “My view is, I want to defend natural gas. I want to defend repairing and building the pipelines we need to fuel our economy. I want to defend fracking under the right circumstances.”
If it’s true, these actions would amount to Watergate-type scandal that could certainly bring down Hillary Clinton. And if she is elected president would lead to her impeachment. There was outrage several months ago when the FBI refused to recommend prosecution of Hillary Clinton for her misuse of a private email server. This could be part of the reason why:
FBI interview summaries and notes, provided late Friday to the House Government Oversight and Intelligence Committees, contain allegations of a “quid pro quo” between a senior State Department executive and FBI agents during the Hillary Clinton email investigation, two congressional sources told Fox News.
Why would the FBI essentially cover-up for Clinton when the evidence against her was so overwhelming:
Section 793(f) of the Espionage Act punishes “gross negligence” in handling of national defense secrets. Offenders not named Clinton can be sent to prison for up to 10 years. Intent is irrelevant. (If Hillary did intend to disclose our secrets, that would be treason, which is covered by another statute.)
Shortly after Congress issued a subpoena for them, someone ordered Paul Combetta of Platte River Networks to destroy with Bleachbit thousands of Hillary’s emails. Destruction of evidence is obstruction of justice under law (18 USC 1505). Offenders not named Clinton can be imprisoned for up to five years.
Most assume the order came from Cheryl Mills, Hillary’s chief of staff at the State Department. This will be difficult to prove beyond reasonable doubt, because Mr. Combetta and Ms. Mills were given immunity from prosecution, and neither is talking.
There had to have been a corrupt deal somewhere along the way to get a powerful law enforcement agency to sell out on such an unprecedented level.
Wikileaks has released purported transcripts of Hillary Clinton’s closed-door speeches to Goldman Sachs in which she tells bankers that their money buys influence, and that they should use it.
Sena predicts the controversy is not over because the Standing Rock and other opponents have “dug in their heels,” determined to see construction stop.
“And the U.S. Corps of Engineers is still reviewing their previous approval of the section on federal lands,” Sena advises. “So that is another legal decision that has yet to be made.”
Partners’ continued construction follows a federal appeals court ruling that allowed construction to resume within 20 miles of the lake.
The Dakota Access Pipeline is a $3.8 million project covering 1,200 miles. Aside from the property near Lake Oahe, the pipeline is completed.
Thousands of people have protested in support of the tribe, and more than 100 people have been arrested since August, including Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein.
It’s indeed ironic to read about how the Black Lives Matter protesters are being spied upon by a black president. Sadly Thinkprogress, like most leftwing news outlets, have remained relatively silent on Obama’s war on whistleblowers, activists, and other anti-1 percent protesters. African-Americans are being lynched in the streets of America by those who supposedly are there to protect them–law enforcement. And where is this president? He has been awol for nearly 8 years while a reign of terror has been going on. Instead, Obama has focused on furthering the police state apparatus. Remember: if it weren’t for Snowden, and other courageous whistleblowers, we wouldn’t know the extent of the police state abuses. It was this president who helped to bring down the Occupy Wall St. movement.
Black Lives Matter protester Johnetta “Netta” Elzie wasn’t surprised by recent reports that law enforcement agencies were using detailed consumer data to track African Americans online.
This is an attempt to intimidate the 99 percent exercising their rights as citizens. If it isn’t clear at this point that we live in a police state, it will be in the future. But it won’t work. There are too many of us willing to fight for our freedoms:
Singer Neil Young, actor Mark Ruffalo and other celebrities on Thursday joined in calling for charges to be dropped against a documentary maker arrested while filming protesters who shut down oil pipelines from Canada to the United States, saying that she was acting as a journalist.Deia Schlosberg, producer of the 2016 documentary How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change, was taken into custody at a TransCanada Corp’s Keystone Pipeline site in Pembina County, North Dakota.She was charged along with activists Samuel Jessup and Michael Foster on Thursday with three counts of conspiracy, charges which carry a maximum penalty of 45 years in prison.
This scandal points again to the military-industrial-complex’s ever growing pursuit of profit at the expense of the national welfare:
he recent arrest of a Booz Allen Hamilton employee on charges of stealing top-secret hacking codes from the National Security Agency has cast more light on the vast privatization of US intelligence and the cozy relations between contractors and their government overseers.
Without Paula Jones’ courage there would not have been Monica Lewinsky revelations or Bill Clinton’s impeachment. She was vilified by the Clintons, and their supporters, and the press. Today, those same people are outraged by Donald Trumps sexual harassment allegations. There is double standard in America: the rules and laws don’t apply to Bill and Hillary Clinton. They are above the law:
The former Arkansas state employee who sued former President Bill Clinton for sexual harassment says she fears for her life in the event that his wife, Hillary Clinton, wins the election.
Paula Jones, the woman who received $850,000 from Bill Clinton as part of an out-of-court settlement after she claimed that he exposed himself to her in 1991 in a Little Rock, Arkansas, hotel, told Fox News that she is worried another Clinton administration could spell the end of her life.
