Politicians are Just Politicians

Hillary has refused to turn over the server for her emails claiming there are personal emails on there with her husband. Yet Bill Clinton has claimed before he rarely used emails. She is a crafty lawyer and has resisted subpoena on every investigation. She justifies a personal account to avoid Congressional subpoenas claiming you can’t put more than one email on one phone. Sorry Hillary, I have three right now on my phone. Obviously, Hillary does not believe in transparency.
Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail – [email protected] – was on a domain set up Jan. 13, 2009, the very same day a Senate committee held her confirmation hearing. She was confirmed and sworn in on Jan. 21 as President Barack Obama’s first secretary of state. This was clearly to prevent her being subpoenaed for that would be routinely sent to the State Department assuming she used the . GOV system as everyone else. Unless someone knew of the existence of such a system, there would have been no subpoena. Very clever. Now the whole Benghazi affair will be reopened.
John Christopher Stevens (1960 – September 12, 2012) was the American diplomat and lawyer who served as the U. S. Ambassador to Libya from June 2012 until his murder on September 12, 2012. The entire Benghazi incident is far deeper than most people would ever dream. True, the Obama administration is covering up the incident as 22 CIA agents were present at the time.

Top 5 Points From Hillary Clinton’s Email Speech Proving You CANNOT Trust Her

21st Century Wire says…
She might not have had much to say on this scandal, but what she did say is quite important.
Do not let Mrs. Clinton forget this scandal as we head into the 2016 election. If she wants to subvert oversight, why should she ever be granted the powers of the presidency?
Number One
‘I want to thank the United Nations for hosting today’s events and putting the challenge of gender equality front and center on the international agenda … this remains the great unfinished business of the 21st Century.’
This opening remark attempts to frame Hillary, herself, as a victim of some kind of gender inequality. She’s attempting to plant the seed in the listener’s mind that she is only being questioned on her emails because she is a woman.
As for ‘gender equality’ being the ‘great unfinished business of the 21st Century’, we would argue that global poverty and vast economic inequality (caused by Anglo-American oligarchical interests promoting neoliberalism, not ‘the patriarchy’) is the the ‘great unfinished business of the 21st Century’.

Hillary Clinton: “I Did Not Email Any Classified Materials”

The only important line from the 15 or so minutes that Hillary Clinton devoted to the biggest political scandal rocking the nation was not that she “only used the personal email for convenience”; it was this:
“I did not email any classified materials.“ Aside from all allusions to an almost verbatim line used by her husband when he too was in a sticky, so to say, situation during his presidency, this statement by Hillary is a problem, and could potentially be the dealbreaker fir her presidential application. Why? Because of this.

“There Are Huge Gaps” In Clinton’s Email Release, Benghazi Probe Chief Blasts

“There are gaps of months and months and months,” exclaims Rep. Trey Gowdy (who leads the committee investigating Hillary Clinton’s handling of the Benghazi attack in September 2012) as the ‘transparent’ release of Clinton’s email includes no emails at all from a seemingly critical Tripoli visit (where she has been photographed using her Blackberry). Gowdy ranted on CBS “Face The Nation” yesterday that “it strains credibility to believe if you’re on your way to Libya to discuss Libyan policy that there is not a single document to turn over to Congress.” Clinton, for now, is staying very quiet on this matter…

Warmongers United: Juncker Requests Creation of EU Army; Peace by War

Warmongers United
European discussion of Russia has gone from dumb to dumber.
Of course, the highly regarded “Warmongers United Think Tank” (WUTT) would dispute that. “Warmongers United” believes more armies, more missiles and more fighting are precisely the right thing to do.
What? Haven’t heard of WUTT?
The think tank consists of a various collection of folks itching for a war with Russia, Iran, and Syria, preferably all at once. True believers want to include China in that group.
In general, WUTT wants to set the world right (just as they insisted a war with Iraq, Vietnam and other places would set the world right).
John McCain is the official spokesman for Warmongers United in the US. Jean-Claude Juncker assumed that role today for Europe. Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush both hope to assume global leadership in 2016.
Juncker Requests Creation of EU Army
Please consider Jean-Claude Juncker Calls for Creation of EU Army.
The president of the European Commission has called for the creation of an EU army in order to show Russia ‘that we are serious about defending European values’.
In an interview with German newspaper Die Welt, Jean-Claude Juncker, who leads the EU’s executive arm, said an EU army would let the continent ‘react credibly to threats to peace in a member state or a neighbour of the EU’.
In an interview with German radio on Sunday, Ursula von der Leyen, Germany’s defence minister, also spoke in favour of a European army, pointing out that a brigade of Dutch soldiers was already under German command.

Really Hillary? One Of Her Secret, Illegal E-Mail Addresses Was mau_suit@clintonemail.com

Alex Griswold has reported that Hillary Clinton wants everyone to read her email so badly, she created ten secret personal email accounts to keep all of her communications hidden from government, and thus, public oversight:
[email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] And the tenth one?
[email protected] Nice, right?
Check out the Daily Caller’s astute comparison for review:
Most of those addresses aren’t too imaginative, which just makes that last one stand out all the more. I don’t know what a ‘mau suit’ is, but here’s a Mao suit:

Middle East Nuclear Arms Race, Can Clinton Still Run, Can Obama Care be Canceled

The following video was published by Greg Hunter on Mar 5, 2015
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress can be summed up with this Associated Press headline that reads ‘Israeli leader: Nuclear pact a bad deal.’ Now I know why President Obama did not want him to talk to Congress. Netanyahu had one standing ovation after another from both sides of the aisle. Sure, about 50 Democrats did not show up and even criticized the Prime Minister after the speech, but that really made the Democrats look even more disheveled and weak. . . . It is also reported that Saudi Arabia is in talks with Pakistan that some say is to buy off-the-shelf nuclear weapons. This is not the first time we have heard the Saudis in talks to buy nuclear weapons from Pakistan. Published reports said that the Saudis had ‘ordered’ nuclear weapons from Pakistan as far back as 2013. One can only suspect the Saudis have nukes and might be adding to their arsenal and a counter to Iran. All I can say is that selling a nuclear deal to Iran, the Arabs and Israel is going to be a very tough sell.
Hillary Clinton is in big trouble over her use of private email while she was Secretary of State. It’s reported she had her own account and did official government business from her own account instead of using government accounts that are required to be saved and accounted for by law. Ironically, Clinton told her staff at the State Department to be sure not to use private emails for security reasons.
Obama Care could be in trouble after oral arguments this week in the Supreme Court. The health care law is being challenged on the fact the IRS is giving subsidies to everybody in America when it was only supposed to give subsidies to states that set up exchanges. Around 35 states did not set up exchanges. This could kill the law because it would make enforcement of it impossible in states that did not set up exchanges.

Could Email-Gate Be Hillary Clinton’s Political Undoing?

The IRS isn’t the only one with an email problem.
Two days ago, The New York Times broke a story that really shouldn’t be that surprising to those who are familiar with the unscrupulous antics of Hillary Clinton:
Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record.
Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act.
And it gets even better – during her tenure as secretary of state, Clinton not only used a personal email account, she also used her own email server instead of using a third-party provider like Gmail or Yahoo Mail, Time reports:
Clinton used a private email server registered back to her family’s home in Chappaqua, N. Y., the AP reports. That means she or someone working for her physically ran her own email, giving her wide-ranging control over her message archives. It also could have made her emails more vulnerable to hackers or physical disasters like fires or floods.

Hillary Clinton’s Use of Private Email Accounts Raises Issues of Transparency

21st Century Wire says…
Hillary is in hot water again, this time over the basic issue of cabinet code and disclosure.
We are now hold that 2016 Democratic hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private e-mail account was created just days before she was confirmed as Obama’s Secretary of State.
The big question: Was it done to avoid accountability?
The State Department says that Hillary Rodham Clinton’s use of her private e-mail account during her tenure as head of the agency did not include sending classified information. But what, if any, security measures Clinton may have used to protect the account remain unclear – and unclassified e-mails could still contain sensitive information about U. S. foreign policy strategy.
‘It is not clear whether Mrs. Clinton’s private email account included encryption or other security measures, given the sensitivity of her diplomatic activity,’ the New York Times reportedMonday A spokesperson for Clinton did not respond to an inquiry from The Washington Post about whether Clinton used a third party service provider like Gmail or AOL or what security features were deployed.

Hillary Clinton’s “Personal” Emails To Be Subpoenaed

In the aftermath of the revelations that Hillary Clinton had exclusively used a personal email account to conduct state correspondence with diplomatic leaders around the globe and pretty much everyone else, it was only a matter of time before the subpoenas started flying. That time is now and as WaPo reports, the “House investigative committee is preparing to send out subpoenas later Wednesday to gather a deeper look into former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton’s nearly exclusive use of personal e-mails to do her official business as the government’s top diplomat, according to people familiar with the probe.”
As a reminder, here is a sampling of some of the emails Clinton had sent to at least one recipient, Sidney Blumenthal, whose email account had been hacked by the infamous Romanian hacker “Guccifer”.

CIA LIES, Economic Collapse & The Banker’s WW3 — Harley Schlanger

The following video was published by SGTreport.com on Mar 4, 2015
Harley Schlanger the national spokesman for LarouchPAC joins me to discuss the very latest global news. We begin with the assassination of Boris Nemtsov and who is likely behind it as the Western banking powers lead the world closer and closer to WW3. Harley and I discuss the collapse of the EU and the fraud that is the Greece debt bomb. Harley reminds us of the need to stand by our principles here at home by impeaching Barack Obama for his litany of crimes against the US Constitution and we round out the discussion by exposing Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton for the Globalist frauds they are, and the absolute antithesis to everything Ron Paul stands for. Thanks for tuning in.

Chicago’s Only Possible Salvation: Bankruptcy – a Name That Cannot be Spoken

Is the Chicago pension system so messed up and union work rules so entrenched the only way to change either of them is bankruptcy? I think so.
So does Dennis Byrne who wrote on his blog today Chicago’s Only Salvation: A Detroit-Like Bankruptcy.
This is a guest post from Byrne.
Chicago’s Only Salvation: A Detroit-Like Bankruptcy
Wait, I thought only the Republican Party was being torn asunder by a rift between the establishment middle and the fringe. That impression was nailed down, again, last week by the embarrassing fracture among House Republicans over funding for the Department of Homeland Security.
But don’t forget last Tuesday’s Chicago primary in which incumbent Rahm Emanuel, the so-called establishment candidate, was forced into a runoff election for mayor with progressive Cook County Commissioner Jesus “Chuy” Garcia.
Observers on the right and left expect that Garcia’s unexpected success bodes well for progressives and is bad for moderate, establishment Democrats. That includes “centrist” (I don’t necessarily agree with the label) and president-in-waiting Hillary Clinton.
They see an uprising among progressives that’ll energize the drive to draft the far-left Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., to challenge Clinton. Suggesting that a national movement is afoot to cleanse the Democratic Party of centrist heretics, they also point to the election of New York Mayor Bill (“I’m a progressive, don’t call me liberal”) de Blasio. Others said last year’s election of labor-backed Ras (“We are the mayor”) Baraka as Newark, N. J., mayor energized progressives.
Locally, left-wing Democrats have draped their mantle over the shoulders of Garcia. That’s happened even though, after reading his answers to the Tribune’s Candidate Questionnaire, I wouldn’t call him the perfect progressive. The Illinois branch of MoveOn.org (the left’s noisy equivalent of the right’s tea party) endorsed Garcia. The Chicago Teachers Union and assorted progressive activists credit themselves for Garcia’s unexpectedly strong showing and their successes in several alderman races.
So, yes, there is a fissure within the Democratic Party, between the establishment types and progressives.
So what?

hdr22@clintonemail.com – How A Romanian Hacker Exposed Hillary Clinton’s Secret Email Life

While the Hillary Clinton email fiasco is sure to be the talk of the town for the next few days, weeks, and months and may have seriously jeopardized the former SecState’s chances at becoming America’s next president, an even more important story is how the revelation that Hillary exclusively used a private, unencrypted and unsupervised email for 4 years of state-level, official business communications, emerged in the first place.
The answer, shockingly, comes courtesy of a Romanian hacker who was known by the handle “Guccifer”, and who is currently serving time in a Bucharest prison for his online attacks against countless public figures including the infamous leaks of George W. Bush personal paintings.
How is it possible that a Romanian convict may have helped accelerate the downfall of Warren Buffett’s presidential hopeful? According to the Smoking Gun, which first reported on this topic back in March 2013, ‘Guccifer’ illegally accessed the AOL e-mail account of Sidney Blumenthal, who then worked as a senior White House adviser to President Bill Clinton, and later became a senior adviser to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign.

As Jeb Bush Pounces On The Hillary Email Scandal, The Real Winner Is… Goldman Sachs

While the Clintons have had their share of funding snafus in recent history exposing the former “not truly well off” first lady as not only a puppet of not only Wall Street but also America’s mega corporations, Hillary Clinton’s use of personal email accounts as America’s former top diplomat is a far more serious issue as it touches directly on accountability, and rational decision-making while in a top position of government power. To say that it impairs her image as a presidential candidate who puts the country ahead of her own interests, would be an understatement.
However, depending on just how aggressive the US DOJ is, it may have criminal implications as well: according to the Weekly Standard, citing CNN conversations with “experts”, Hillary Clinton broke the law by using her personal email account to conduct official State Department business while she was secretary of state.
“This is a very big deal,” Brianna Keilar said to host Chris Cuomo. “And you said she may have broken laws or rules here, Chris, well a lot of experts say that she did by using only a personal account while she was secretary of state. This is a huge development, especially as Hillary Clinton is just perhaps weeks from declaring her candidacy for president.” Keilar went on to suggest other Democrats might be tempted to run for president after this latest revelation.
One person who was obviously delighted by the latest development was Clinton’s main Republican competitors, Jeb Bush, whose camp on Monday was quick to pounce on the email scandal, while also invoking the farcical IRS Lois Lerner “excuse” that emails were lost due to failed hard drives. To wit from Politico:
“A potential rival of Clinton in the presidential campaign, former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.), called on the former secretary of state to make the collection of emails public. ‘Hillary Clinton should release her emails. Hopefully she hasn’t already destroyed them,’ Bush spokeswoman Kristy Campbell said. ‘Governor Bush believes transparency is a critical part of public service and of governing.’

Hillary Clinton’s Latest Scandal: Former SecState Exclusively Used Undocumented, Personal Email Account

While the Hillary Clinton campaign seems unperturbed by recent problematic disclosures by Politico into the Hillary Clinton Foundation, the former first lady and current democrat presidential hopeful will have a field day explaining why, as the NYT reported overnight, Hillary – in her role as Secretary of State – “exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business” according to State Department officials in violation of “federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record.”
Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act.
Why is this a deeply troubling breach of protocol, not to say a substantial threat to national security by America’s former top diplomat? For starter, using Hotmail or Aol instead of a protected, encrypted government address leaves little to the hacker’s imagination. But what’s worse is that as a result of exclusive reliance on non-government platforms, which have no document retention policy and in fact have a “straight to trash” policy, any and all emails regarding the Benghazi scandal, many of which were FOIAed, could have been and were simply deleted without ever leaving a trace. Or as NSA Nate summarized:

Hillary Clinton Exposed Part 2 – Clinton Foundation Took Millions From Countries That Also Fund ISIS

The Washington Post reported last week that foreign sources, including governments, made up a third of those who have given the foundation more than $1 million over time. The Post found that the foundation, begun by former president Bill Clinton, has raised nearly $2 billion since its creation in 2001.
Foreign governments and individuals are prohibited from giving money to U. S. political candidates, to prevent outside influence over national leaders. But the foundation has given donors a way to potentially gain favor with the Clintons outside the traditional political limits.
– From the Washington Post article: Foreign Governments Gave Millions to Foundation While Clinton Was at State Dept.
Of all the idiotic wars that the dangerously inept American politicians propagandize the public into accepting, the latest ISIS conflict is the most Orwellian and terrifying. Not only was the emergence of ISIS the direct consequence of the chaos left over by the Iraq war – which in itself was based on lies and inaccurate information – but the primary funders of the latest existential terrorist threat du jour are America’s Persian Gulf allies.
This is something I’ve covered before. For example, in last summer’s piece, America’s Disastrous Foreign Policy – My Thoughts on Iraq, I highlighted:

Hilary Clinton Exposed Part 1 – How She Aggressively Lobbied for Mega Corporations as Secretary of State

That approach, which Mrs. Clinton called ‘economic statecraft,’ emerged in discussions with Robert Hormats, a former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. investment banker who has worked in Democratic and Republican administrations and became an undersecretary of state. ‘One of the very first items was, how do we strengthen the role of the State Department in economic policy?’ he says.
Early in Mrs. Clinton’s tenure, according to Mr. Hormats, Microsoft’s then Chief Research Officer Craig Mundie asked the State Department to send a ranking official to a fourth annual meeting of U. S. software executives and Chinese government officials about piracy and Internet freedom. Mr. Hormats joined the December 2009 meeting in Beijing.
Mr. Hormats says there was no relation between Microsoft’s donations and the State Department’s participation in the China conference.
Before every overseas trip, says Mr. Hormats, the former undersecretary of state, he helped prepare a list of U. S. corporate interests for Mrs. Clinton to advocate while abroad.
– From the Wall Street Journal article: Hillary Clinton’s Complex Corporate Ties
If you can’t beat em, mock em. That’s essentially my motto going into the imperial spectacle known as the 2016 American Presidential election. With another Bush and another Clinton likely on the ballot, there’s basically only one candidate running, and I plan on proving this in no uncertain terms over the next couple of years.
Recently, I started a series known as ‘Jeb Bush Exposed’ (read part 1and part 2), so it’s only fair that I create a similar category for Hilary. Going forward, I plan on naming all future exposes on these two cronies in that manner, so all the stories are easily accessible as we head into next year’s charade.
Hilary Clinton’s biggest weakness is that she doesn’t actually stand for anything other than money and power. Glenn Greenwald pointed this out perfectly in last year’s post: Glenn Greenwald on Hilary Clinton: ‘Soulless, Principle-Free, Power Hungry…’ Here’s an excerpt:

A Clinton Scandal Ignites Before Hillary Is Even Officially a Candidate

Hillary Clinton, who has yet to be named the Democratic candidate for President in 2016, finds herself enmeshed in a transatlantic scandal that is an untimely reminder of the scandal fatigue that Americans were forced to endure during the Presidency of her husband, Bill Clinton.
Last Monday, the Guardian newspaper, the BBC, the French newspaper, Le Monde and dozens of other news outlets disclosed that the Swiss banking unit of the global behemoth bank, HSBC, had assisted the ultra rich in hiding assets and providing advice on how to evade domestic tax authorities.
The documentation for the revelations were provided by a former HSBC employee, Herv Falciani, to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.
That news broke on Monday, February 9. The Clinton bombshell came the next day, Tuesday, February 10, when the Guardian reported that seven clients of the Swiss HSBC bank had cumulatively donated $81 million to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation – a nonprofit that runs the Clinton Global Initiative, the Clinton Presidential Library and numerous other programs.

LEAKED AUDIO RECORDINGS Reveal Hillary Clinton is a Muslim Brotherhood Agent Who Helped Muslim Brotherhood Take Control of North Africa and Middle East

According to a three-part series published by the Washington Times, it was Hillary Clinton who was insisting that the U. S. remove Libya’s Muammar Gadhafi in 2011 while pushing false narratives to do so. These reports have allegedly caught the attention of the House Select Committee on Benghazi. What must be included in this analysis is just how influential Clinton’s most trusted adviser Huma Abedin was and is. If anyone had a vested interest in removing Gadhafi from power to benefit Libya’s Muslim Brotherhood rebels, it was Huma’s Muslim Brotherhood family.
To illustrate how close Huma and Hillary were, it was Abedin who first informed her boss of Gadhafi’s death:
The timeline of events as they unfolded in Libya starts in early 2011. By July of that year, the positions of the State Department, led by Hillary at the time, were apparently so ridiculous that someone from the Pentagon went to the Gadhafi regime to tell them so. Using lies to justify regime change in Libya reflected a very pro-Muslim Brotherhood stance.

Bill Clinton And The Pedophile: The Sex Scandal That Could Destroy Hillary’s Presidential Ambitions

Why did a convicted billionaire pedophile named Jeffrey Epstein that pimped out underage girls to powerful men have 21 contact phone numbers for Bill Clinton? And why did Clinton fly on ‘multiple occasions’ to the private Caribbean island where Epstein regularly held wild sexual orgies? Let me give you a hint: it was not to discuss politics over milk and cookies. Every once in a while, we get a small peek into the twisted sexual world of the global elite. In this case, a Florida lawsuit that alleges that Britain’s Prince Andrew had sex with a 17-year-old ‘sex slave’provided by Epstein is making headlines all over the planet. But of potentially even greater importance is what this lawsuit is revealing about Bill Clinton. If it can be proven that Bill Clinton had sex with underage girls provided by Jeffrey Epstein, that could potentially destroy any chance that Hillary Clinton has of winning the presidency in 2016.
The 17-year-old girl that Prince Andrew is alleged to have had sex with is named Virginia Roberts. She is claiming that she once received $15,000 for having sex with him…
A teenage ‘sex slave’ says she was paid $15,000 for bedding Britain’s Prince Andrew by the American billionaire who served as the royal’s procurer.
Virginia Roberts was 17 when Wall Street honcho and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein allegedly pimped her out to the prince.
‘A lot of powerful men were part of Jeffrey’s scene, but I specifically remember Andrew,’ Roberts told Britain’s Daily Mail.
And it is a fact that Jeffrey Epstein is a convicted sex offender. He was convicted by a court of law for paying a 14-year-old girl 300 dollars to massage him and have sex with him…
