HILLARY’S INDICTABLE OFFENSES

HILL & BILL THE NEW UNTOUCHABLES

 

 

By now the dust has settled from FBI Director’s half-hearted whitewash of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server instead of following established protocols which have been in place for over a decade and which were required by law.  As even many mainstream media pundits have observed, even though Comey ostensibly said “no reasonable prosecutor would indict her” based on the evidence, he followed that patently false claim by citing the numerous things she did which WOULD have gotten any other citizen of the United States sent away for a long time. 

 However, Comey did give Clinton enough of a “get out of jail” card that Hillary shills have subsequently descended on the media to spin the “non-indictment” as an exoneration.  It was not, and as several jurists have gone on various media outlets to proclaim, there are numerous statutes, serious offenses under Federal law, which a “reasonable” prosecutor would indeed have indicted her on and, all things being equal, easily obtain a conviction on.  However, when formerly respected Senator Clair McCaskill went on MSNBC, looked into the camera and lied straight faced to the nation that Hillary “did not break the law” and was absolved of any charges and that, in effect, we can all just move on.  Any lifelong Democrat should understand that Claire McCaskill is a liar and that she is covering for a modern day “Untouchable”—Hillary Clinton. 

 Of course, this is an election year, so independents and Democrats, who are used to tuning out the usual Republican hyperbole and just plain fabrication may assume the comments about Clinton culpability regarding her abuse of her office with regard to the private email servers is just part and parcel of election year bullshit.  Unfortunately, this is a classic case of “crying wolf.”  The GOP shills have fabricated so many non-scandals for the last eight years to cover their own egregious bungling and criminality during the Oh-Oh Decade, that it is easy to assume that the calls for Hillary’s indictment by the Repugnicans is part and parcel with that. 

 Moreover, the GOP’s leading goon/buffoon Donald Trump’s modus operandi is to engage in name calling without backing up his insults with facts.  Mere repetition of “Crooked Hillary” over and over, without explaining WHY she is crooked, is not only juvenile, it causes both independent non-Republicans and honest Democrats alike to tune it out as just so much Trumpiness.

 This is most unfortunate, since there are quite concrete reasons why former Secretary of State Clinton SHOULD be indicted and, by extension, why she should never EVER be considered for the highest political office in the land; hell, she can’t be trusted with being elected dogcatcher without turning it into some kind of shady operation.  Be that as it may, rather than just engage in one liners and epithets, American voters need to understand exactly what crimes Hillary Clinton committed while in office and the serious nature of her offenses.  What follows, therefore, is a brief summary of the criminal offenses she committed as Secretary of State, especially with regard to her use of a private, unsecured, email server.  It is by now means an exhaustive list and I have tried to restrict it to just her actions with regard to the abuse of emails and not the other, far more extensive, criminal actions she committed while in office.  So here goes:

 18 USC Code § 1924: Prohibits putting Classified information into a non-Classified setting.  Her private servers (she used several, it turns out, not just one) were at no time approved for the use of Classified documents.  Worse still, FBI Director Comey characterized her private email system as being less secure than a standard gmail account!  Not only were Classified documents so transferred, Top Secret and SAP information was also put on this “leaky sieve” private system.  This was not accidental, it was not unintentional and it certainly wasn’t convenient for anyone concerned, including HRC. 

Another count on 18 USC 1924 makes the very act of transferring information to a private server (or rather servers) located in her home, or any other location not within an authorized Federal facility was, by its very act, a crime.  This is, on a much smaller scale, is what General Petraeus did with just one document; he was convicted of a Class A Misdemeanor, and while he got very lenient treatment, no one contests his guilt.  Hillary Clinton did this on a massive scale.  18 USC 1924

 An additional count under this same law also applies to her use of an unsecured Blackberry mobile phone, from which she texted and phoned ALL of her official business.  She was offered a secure government Blackberry which had special encrypted software built into it but she refused.  Because the floor of the State Department which her office was on has heavy anti-hacking and cyber security protection, Hillary Clinton had to actually go downstairs to an unsecured area to receive all her calls—if that doesn’t sound like willful flaunting of basic security protocols, I don’t what does.  I suspect a first year law student could prove intent on this count alone.

18 USC Code § 793 “Gathering, transmitting or losing Defense Information.” Felony. Says you cannot expose National Secrets through gross negligence.  Whether Hillary Clinton INTENDED to expose State Department and other Classified and Top Secret documents to being hacked is irrelevant; her “carelessness” in and of itself is an indictable offense. It calls for ten years jail time. Again, let me repeat, intent is not necessary to prove guilt.  Comey lied.   18USC 793

18 USC Code § 2071: This law stipulates that you cannot destroy government information. Felony.  Does anybody seriously believe that over HALF of the 60,000 emails Hillary Clinton had on her private server were about Yoga classes and how to cookie recipes? Yet she deleted over half her emails without any oversight on the part of any official government agency or previous inspection by either the FBI, the CIA or even the State Department. 18 USC 2071

 18 USC Code § 1519 Obstruction of Justice/Tampering with Evidence.  Felony.  Once the Benghazi Committee subpoenaed her emails, they should all have been turned over to the government and it was up to the FBI to determine what was and was not relevant.  To delete more than 30,000 emails, whatever their content, in the knowledge that they had been subpoenaed is, IN AND OF ITSELF OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE.  Moreover, Clinton and her lackeys did not just erase the emails the servers were wiped clean in a manner so as to make any of their contents irretrievable; that takes a helluva lot of intent to do that.  18 USC Code 1519

 As it turns out, copies of some of those emails did surface and many, if not most, that survived were not “private” had to do with government business—or at the least mixing government business with personal gain—which brings us to:

 44 USC § 3101 The Federal Records Act of 1950, which makes the Secretary of State responsible for “making and preserving” State Department Records.  When HRC took office in January of 2009 she was made aware of all the rules regarding preservation of official records; moreover, a few months later the rules were updated, which stipulated that if someone used a non-agency email, any documents received via that means must also be preserved: OFR 1236.2244USC 3101 and 36 CFR 1236.22

18 USC § 1001 Making false statements before Congress.  The whole private email scandal became public in the first place because, while testifying before the Benghazi Commission, knowledge of her using a private server first surfaced.  In any case, nine days after the Benghazi attack Congress officially requested all—ALL—information related to the attack in possession of Hillary Clinton or the State Department.  Nothing was handed over; multiple Freedom of Information lawsuits were filed by various parties and Hillary and the State Department deny there was anything to provide.  Congress filed a subpoena, Clinton denied receiving it; moreover her denial of having any documents related to Libya were shown to be a lie by a photo taken of her using her personal Blackberry while on the way to Libya after the attack.  When Sidney Blumenthal was force to turn over his documents about Benghazi, a number of the documents were from Hillary Clinton—proof that she LIED to Congress.  The whole story of her stonewalling Congress and denying having any documents related to the whole affair is far more convoluted than I summarize her; but the main point is, that on multiple occasions she lied to Congress.  18 USC 1001

18 USC § 798 Making Classified information available to a person not entitled to receive it.  This is a Class A Felony.  Huma Abedin, was at one and the same time a paid employee of the State Department, an employee of a private Clinton-connected firm and a member of the Clinton Foundation.  The legality of this triple dipping aside, and the motives behind it, it is clear that Huma Abedin routinely had access to the highest level intelligence, all at Clinton’s behest.  Being an employee of a private company and a non governmental organization clearly disqualified her from having access to any kind of secure information; again, Hillary Clinton knowingly violated the law.  This is a Class A Felony.  18 USC 798

 

 There is one known occasion when one of Clinton’s minions was trying to fax a top secret document to SHE WHO MUST BE OBEYED and it wouldn’t go through, because the government machine was programmed not to transmit anything marked Top Secret to an unsecure destination.  Clinton personally ordered the document stripped of its Top Secret markings so it would go through. The document in question had the locations of spy satellites and drones crucial to the government’s war on terrorism. I would say that was pretty clear intent, it was also reckless and that one act alone could well have endangered national security. 

Because of Hillary Clinton’s wanton disregard for the law and putting private gain over National Security, it is clear that she endangered public safety and National security on numerous occasions.  Moreover, although Comey hedged and equivocated whether National Security was in fact breached, there is abundant evidence it was, and on multiple occasions.  First, and most publicly, was the Romanian hacker Guccifer, (or Guccifer 1) whom the FBI went to great lengths to have extradited to the US.

Unofficially, it is widely known that the Russians hacked into Hillary’s private server as well, although they obviously aren’t admitting anything.  Putin, it is reported, is looking at ways to leak her deleted documents in a way that doesn’t directly implicate Russian intelligence. So expect at least some of those “private” emails to begin bubbling up during Her Majesty’s election campaign and even more so if she gets elected. 

Chinese intelligence, who have multiple teams devoted to nothing but hacking into US government computer systems, has undoubtedly also read Clinton’s State Department secrets; there is even a more than even chance that ISIS and other terrorist organizations also accessed her State Department communiqués via her unsecure private server. 

Again, as Director Comey noted, she would have better cyber security had she just used a gmail account.  I can’t begin to count the number of violations of the Espionage Act she violated as a result, but I would warrant even a half baked prosecutor could make a credible enough case.

As for FBI Director Comey’s assertion that there were no precedents for prosecuting Clinton for her wanton disregard of American security, this too is a bald faced lie.  Without going into details, but besides General Petraeus, a number of individuals have been prosecuted and convicted for doing far less than what Hillary Clinton did: Major Jason Brezler; Bradley (now Chelsea) Manning; Naval Reservist Bryan H, Mishimura; CIA Whistleblower John Kiriakou; the list goes on and on; but in all cases, their alleged offenses were far less and in most case motivated by patriotism.  Hillary Clinton’s motives are entirely different issue, but suffice it to say, she was motivated more by self interest than public interest.

The above is just a brief summary, and only related to her Email criminality.  In truth, Emailgate is but the tip of Clinton criminal enterprises, most of which spread, like a vast international spider-web, from the Clinton Foundation.  I don’t know what blackmail Bill Clinton used against the Obama Administration and Attorney General Lynch, but apparently it was enough to make them shit themselves in their efforts to obstruct bringing a serial criminal to justice.

How Comey Conned the Cons

“A good prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich” Sol Wachtler

Hillary Dumpty

Imagine you are James Comey and you are told by your superiors (in this case the Attorney General Loretta Lynch) in no uncertain terms that you are not to recommend an indictment of Hillary Clinton.  The fix is in, the case is rigged; the system is corrupt.  We all know this by now, unless you are a driveling idiot or some dumb-ass pseudo-Progressive with head in the sand who supports Hillary Clinton.  You have spent the last year or so carefully building and ironclad case.  What do you do?

There were two options: one, to do the right thing; defy your superiors and hand them a recommendation to indict the most corrupt Secretary of State in American History.  This would cause Hillary Clinton to bow out of the Presidential race and Bernie Sanders becomes nominated the Democratic Presidential candidate.  The other is, you do as told, betray all professional integrity and allow the equivalent of a Mafia Don to run for the most powerful political position in the world. We now know that Comey took the second course, paving the way for Crooked Hillary to be the “presumptive” nominee.  The 94 dollar question is: why?

BILL & HILL MAKE BONNIE & CLYDE LOOK LIKE PENNYANTE CROOKS

Several answers come to mind.  First, you want to retain your job and would prefer not to end it prematurely, even if you do it by blackening your own reputation in the law enforcement world.  The last time someone stuck by their prosecutorial guns was during Watergate, the so-called “Saturday Night Massacre” when the Special Prosecutor investigating Nixon’s wrong-doing got too close to the truth and Nixon ordered him fired: the Attorney General refused and he was fired as well.  But for all his wrongdoing, President Nixon was not 1/100th as corrupt as Hillary Clinton, nor as rich, nor as powerful. It is also possible that Slick Willie at that airport meeting threatened Loretta Lynch with some juicy blackmail if his boss Hillary didn’t get off; the blackmail certainly extended throughout the Obama administration and perhaps to the FBI as well.

Secondly, Comey, if you do do the right thing and recommend prosecution, you, a Republican, will have just handed the Presidency to the Democrats.  Hillary Clinton, who is so incompetent she couldn’t even type a simple email without violating the Espionage Act, has only managed to stay ahead of outsider Sanders in the primaries by outrageously overt cheating that a first grader could recognize.  Unfortunately, these days we have reporters who do a worse job of reporting the news than a first grader could do.

Handing the nomination to an HONEST Democratic candidate like Sanders will mean Bozo the Billionaire Trump’s candidacy will go down in flames, and as much as the GOP hates him, they lust after power more.  So give the fools in the DNC and the White House what they want: Hillary gets a pass, a get out of jail free card, and the Republicans will likely win the White House.

BILL & HILL CON ARTISTS

But notice what Comey did, that devious little devil: he prefaced his whitewash with a virtual catalog of all the indictable offenses Hillary committed with regard to the Private Email servers.  Comey did not recommend prosecution, true, but he made it clear to anyone who is not a Hillary troll that she was GUILTY AS HELL.  Now, if the Democratic Party had an ounce of integrity left–Hell, an ounce of common sense left–they would dump Hillary Clinton at the Convention on July 25 and go with the one man who represents all the things the Democratic Party stood for before the Clintons and the NeoLiberals corrupted it–the FDR New Deal programs that made postwar America the most powerful, most prosperous nation on earth.  So Hillary gets her nomination and will struggle to stay even with Trump the Billionaire Buffoon; and if the polls go too far in her favor, Comey’s people have a mountain of incriminating documents ready to leak to the press at any time.

Moreover, if by some miracle Hillary, the Capo di Tutti Capi, does win the Presidency, everyone seems to have forgotten the reason Hillary put all her communications on the Private Server to start with: to hide the BILLIONS of dollars worth of graft that she funneled through the CLINTON FOUNDATION.  The reason the FBI criminal investigation has taken so long is that they have been following all the threads of corruption outward from the emails to the pay for play graft that Hillary was at the center of.

Clinton Inauguration Day

The Emails are like the tip of an ice-burg visible above the waterline; the bulk of her illegal activities have been hidden in that pseudo nonprofit and they all revolve around the complex money laundering schemes of the Clinton Foundation. My guess is that not only the Clinton Crime Family will go down once the Foundation’s crooked dealings are exposed, but most of the Party Establishment as well.  If Hillary gets into office, the hearings and investigations leading to her impeachment will make Watergate look tame by comparison.

Convict Hillary

There is a Chinese proverb: be careful of what you wish for; you just may get it.  FBI Director Comey has given the corrupt Democratic Party Establishment exactly what they wanted: now watch them choke on it.

Hillary Clinton to be Indicted on Federal Racketeering

THIS IS A BLOG POST ORIGINALLY POSTED ON MAY 29, 2016 HuffPost blogger Frank Huguenard and censored by the corporate media giant the same day without explanation, either to the author or to other journalists inquiring as to their reason.  With some difficulty it was recovered from their online archives, but without the usual linkage, and my computer became unstable attempting to recover the page.  Here is the archive link: http://archive.is/bERJ6 .  Huguenard has been a regular contributor until, apparently, his reporting came too close to reality. He is also an independent filmmaker.  While I normally only post original blogs, I repost this as a public service in defense of the First Amendment. 

Hillary Dumpty

The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) is a United States Federal Law passed in 1970 that was designed to provide a tool for law enforcement agencies to fight organized crime.  RICO allows prosecution and punishment for alleged racketeering activity that has been executed as part of an ongoing criminal enterprise.

“Activity considered to be racketeering may include bribery, counterfeiting, money laundering, embezzlement, illegal gambling, kidnapping, murder, drug trafficking, slavery, and a host of other nefarious business practices.”

James Comey and The FBI will present a recommendation to Loretta Lynch, Attorney General of the Department of Justice, that includes a cogent argument that the Clinton Foundation is an ongoing criminal enterprise engaged in money laundering and soliciting bribes in exchange for political, policy and legislative favors to individuals, corporations and even governments both foreign and domestic.

Convict Hillary

James Comey

“The New York Times examined Bill Clinton’s relationship with a Canadian mining financier, Frank Giustra, who has donated millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and sits on its board. Clinton, the story suggests, helped Giustra’s company secure a lucrative uranium-mining deal in Kazakhstan and in return received “a flow of cash” to the Clinton Foundation, including previously undisclosed donations from the company’s chairman totaling $2.35 million.”

Bloomberg Politics

Initially, Comey had indicated that the investigation into Hillary’s home brewed email server was to be concluded by October of 2015.  However, as more and more evidence in the case has come to light, this initial date kept being pushed back as the criminal investigation has expanded well beyond violating State Department regulations to include questions about espionage, perjury and influence peddling.

Here’s what we do know.   Tens of millions of dollars donated to the Clinton Foundation was funneled to the organization through a Canadian shell company which has made tracing the donors nearly impossible.  Less than 10% of donations to the Foundation has actually been released to charitable organizations and $2M that has been traced back to long time Bill Clinton friend Julie McMahon (aka The Energizer).   When the official investigation into Hillary’s email server began, she instructed her IT professional to delete over 30,000 emails and cloud backups of her emails older than 30 days at both Platte River Networks and  Datto, Inc.  The FBI has subsequently recovered the majority, if not all, of Hillary’s deleted emails and are putting together a strong case against her for attempting to cover up her illegal and illicit activities.

A conviction under RICO comes when the Department of Justice proves that the defendant has engaged in two or more examples of racketeering and that the defendant maintained an interest in, participated in or invested in a criminal enterprise affecting interstate or foreign commerce.  There is ample evidence already in the public record that the Clinton Foundation qualifies as a criminal enterprise and there’s no doubt that the FBI is privy to significantly more evidence than has already been made public.

Under RICO, the sections most relevant in this case will be section 1503 (obstruction of justice), section 1510 (obstruction of criminal investigations) and section 1511 (obstruction of State or local law enforcement).  As in the case with Richard Nixon after the Watergate Break-in, it’s the cover-up of a crime that will be the Clintons’ downfall.  Furthermore, under provisions of title 18, United States Code: Section 201, the Clinton Foundation can be held accountable for improprieties relating to bribery.  The FBI will be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that through the Clinton Foundation, international entities were able to commit bribery in exchange for help in securing business deals, such as the uranium-mining deal in Kazakhstan.

It is a Federal Crime to negligently handle classified information under United States Code (USC) 18 section 1924.  It is a Federal Class A Felony under USC 18 section 798.  Hillary certified under oath to a federal judge that she had handed over to the state department all of her emails, which she clearly did not.  In spite of her repeated statements to the effect that everything that she did with her home brewed email server as Secretary of State was above-board and approved by the State Department,  the Inspector General Report vehemently refutes this claim.  Hillary refused to be interview by the Inspector General’s office in their investigation, claiming that her upcoming FBI interview took precedent but it seems more likely that Hillary is more concerned about committing perjury or admitting to anything that can be used against her in a court of law.

“Secretary Clinton should have preserved any Federal records she created and received on her personal account by printing and filing those records with the related files in the Office of the Secretary.  At a minimum, Secretary Clinton should have surrendered all emails dealing with Department business before leaving government service and, because she did not do so, she did not comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act.”

Inspector General Report

Hillary Clinton is guilty of exposing classified documents to foreign governments by placing them illegally on her server, of sending and receiving classified documents and conspiring with her staff to circumvent the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by avoiding the use of the State Department run servers.  Some of the documents were so highly classified the investigators on the case weren’t even able to examine the material themselves until they got their own clearances raised to the highest levels.

While there is an excellent cast to be made the Hillary committed treasonous actions, the strongest case the FBI has is charging both Bill and Hillary Clinton as well as the Clinton Foundation of Racketeering.  There’s no wonder why it’s taken this long for the FBI to bring forward a recommendation.  The rabbit hole is so deep on this one that it has taking dozens of investigators to determine the full extent of the crimes that have been committed.   Perhaps the most interesting question here is whether or not the FBI’s investigation will be able to directly link The Clinton Foundation with The Hillary Victory Fund.  If this happens, the DNC itself may be in jeopardy of accusations of either being an accomplice or of being complicit in racketeering.”

It should also be noted that investigative reporter H. A. Goodman has reported about the FBI Clinton Criminal Investigation along similar lines on his vlog: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MK4myOpw6jY

 

 

HILLARY, FILLORY AND THE DNC

evil-hillary

Unless you live under a rock and, say, think the thing a basketball goes through is called a “ring” you are well familiar with Hillary Rodham Clinton and her upcoming coronation. Fillory, however, may be less familiar to some.  It is a reference from Lev Grossman’s series of fantasy novels, The Magicians.  Fillory is a magical never never land in this bestseller series which is supposedly the subject of a series of saccharine children’s books.  Fillory and the fictitious children’s books are obviously patterned on Narnia and the book series by C. S. Lewis—an equally insipid magical world.              Fillory-Map_detail-300x177  

However, in Lev Grossman’s adult magic series, Fillory is very real and the creator of Fillory and author of the Fillory books is a child molester.  So Fillory, instead of this wonderful idealistic place, is actually a very dangerous place controlled by a vicious sociopath.  Hmm, now what would Hillary and Fillory have to do with one another, can we guess?  magicians tophat

The narrative that the Clinton’s—mainly Hillary Clinton—have been promoting for over fifteen years that she is a dedicated progressive and reformer, a tireless champion of women’s and children’s rights and other noble causes.  In truth, Hill & Bill are tireless promoters on no one but themselves; whenever she has occupied a political office, Hillary has used it to enrich herself at the public expense, selling votes and influence to the highest bidder; this is in addition to her ruthless grab for power.  Let us be fair about this, were she the CEO of a major corporation, she would have made it tremendously successful and destroyed whatever competition lay in her way. But what may be allowable in the private sector (especially since the government has not enforced the Sherman Anti-Trust Act in nearly half a century) is NOT allowable to a person holding public office.

Hillary Message
Hillary Clinton talks the talk but walks with the banksters and Wall Street oligarchs.

As Senator, she not only voted to invade Iraq but at every opportunity has been an eager war-hawk, adopting all the GOP Neocon’s official lies as her own.  As Secretary of State, she has pushed the Obama administration to intervene in Libya and more recently Syria, both with disastrous consequences; she aided and abetted a military coup in Honduras and has protected that dictatorship from sanctions for their gross human rights abuse—in large part because of her financial dealings with a multi-national company, which is murdering and raping women and children to terrorize the local populace to acquiesce to a mega damn being built on their lands.  You want weapons to suppress democracy in your country or region?  You got it! You want to expand your fracking operations overseas? You got it!  You want to push through trade deals that steal good-paying American jobs and avoid labor, environmental and other laws by outsourcing overseas—why Hillary has pushed through 45 such bad trade deals. 

fracking oil pump
As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton actively promoted fracking overseas; her kickbacks from the fracking industry were funneled through the Clinton Foundation and a spider’s web of shell corporations.

Of course, any benefit to a corporation or foreign government comes with a price—but you can discuss the details on Hillary’s private email server, so the public won’t know about the bribery and financial dirt she’s dealing in.

The Clinton Foundation is officially billed as a benevolent organization doing good throughout the world; it is in fact, nothing more that a multi-national slush fund, designed to launder bribes and pay to play payments from, not just corporations, but foreign governments.  Beginning with NAFTA and continuing on with a serious of disadvantageous trade deals designed to enthrone international banks and multinational corporations over the US and other democracies, and roll back environmental laws, safety requirements and labor protections worldwide, while transferring good paying American jobs overseas, where their friends will pay starvation wages and murder anyone who even thinks of organizing a labor union. The tentacles of the Clinton Crime Family are so numerous, so convoluted and so evil, it would be impossible to summarize them in one book, although a number of investigative reporters have tried.Convict Hillary

Having amassed a huge slush fund, the Clintons have spent the last eight years dispersing their largess to the political leaders of the Democratic Party, and even those few who have not been corrupted by their money are too afraid of retribution to openly protest about their corruption of the entire party apparatus.  Yes, Hillary has an enemies list too, a very real physical list, where those who have crossed her or opposed her are judged and graded for their crimes against La Familia.  Stalin would envy the unquestioned control which she exerts over the party stalwarts. 

hillary_queen_usa

In the scheme of things, she was to have had her coronation in 2008, but an obscure freshman senator from Illinois managed to come from behind to steal the crown—I mean presidency—quite unexpectedly.  Hillary was not the popular choice in 2008 any more than she is now; but this time around, she has made sure that her will in the primaries is rigidly enforced, with local party hacks and Hillary minions busily hacking electronic voting machines (easily done by anyone with an 8th grade science education), forged absentee ballots, and assorted last minute voter purges, vote flipping and change of party affiliation.  The evidence of massive vote fraud in Arizona and New York is well documented, but since Hillary’s major contributors include all the major media conglomerates, you will hear ne’er a word on television, the newspapers, radio or much of anywhere else.

 Hillary's boys

Hillary has a 57% distrust rating with the general public, only slightly less than Donald Trump’s; where Bernie Sanders has turned out crowds of twenty, thirty thousand and more fro rallies, Hillary can barely get a thousand or less to show up at her rallies.  Fortunately, CNN and MSNBC are very good at using their telephoto lenses to make a small crowd look big.  Without the massive cheating she has carried out in primaries across the country, she would not be in the nominal lead in committed delegates right now; even so, Hillary has been unable to put away an outsider candidate, who has virtually walked on eggshells during the primaries not engage in personal attacks on Her Majesty, or even much point out her many obvious weaknesses as a candidate—such as the brewing criminal investigations into her use of private emails to mix her work as Secretary of State with international bribery and influence peddling.  Her weakness in the primaries has been abundantly apparent to all but the blind—which apparently includes the DNC.

 

The-Godfather-620x349
Hillary has made the DNC an offer it can’t refuse.  Sooner or later, Hillary is going down; the only question is, will the entire Democratic Party be bought down with her?

So, given her willingness to go to any extreme to cheat and bribe her way to the nomination, Americans can expect the head of the Clinton Crime Family to be nominated. But if the Democratic Party establishment wishes to believe in Hillary’s never never land of Fillory, voters need to be made aware of the evil that lurks in that fantasy land.Corrupt CEO Hillary

Like the delusional land of Fillory, the magical thinking of the DNC and the Hillarybots will, sooner or later be exposed as the delusion it really is.  Whether this is after she has been nominated and her candidacy blows up on the campaign trail, or, if her sabotage of the Republican presidential campaign works (Trump has long been a friend of the Clintons), after she has been elected, she will be almost certainly suffer Congressional investigations for the length of her reign, culminating in her impeachment.

 delusion

Sooner or later the elaborate lie Hillary Clinton has erected will crash down and take the Democratic Party down with her.  When that happens, don’t blame Bernie, his ‘bros’ (or his sis’); blame a corrupt DNC and all the party hacks who went along with her crooked campaign.  For all the Queen’s horses and all the Queen’s IT experts won’t be able to bail Queen Hillary out of jail. 

Hillary Dumpty

DON’T CRY FOR ME EAST L.A.

THE TRUTH IS YOU NEVER KNEW ME…

Hillary as Evita

Her Royal Highness Hillary flew in to Los Angeles today, less to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and more to grab wads of cash from wealthy Angelinos, in between a stop to speak to Hispanics at a local college.  Apparently, because Her Highness carries hot sauce (allegedly) in her handbag, she feels entitled to the Latino vote.

Not all Americans of Hispanic descent welcomed the new Evita Peron to their fair city however.  Several Latin American groups in Los Angeles find plenty not to like about the  former Secretary of State and planned to protest her Cinco de Mayo visit to East Los Angeles College.

Organizers protesting Her Majesty Hillary’s visit include Union del Barrio-LA, MEXA de ELAC and the Los Angeles Brown Beret.  In a communique they “call on the L.A. community to join us this Thursday to tell Hillary that she is NOT WELCOMED in L.A.!”

Organizers called Clinton an enemy of the working class. They also argue that her Central American policies as secretary of state caused death, destruction and deportation.  While Secretary of State, Clinton condoned a coup d’état in Honduras and then refused to take action against the military dictatorship.  Pretending to be for women and children to American voters, Hillary has covered up the gang rape and murder of women and children in the Central American country, in part because a multi-national with ties to the Clinton Foundation wants to build a giant damn on native lands.

The demonstrators plan to gather at Belvedere Park in East Los Angeles at 3 p.m. and then march on the community college men’s gym two blocks away, where Clinton is scheduled to address supporters.

IF YOU STRIKE ME DOWN….

Bernie Wan Kanobi

After the brazen voting fraud displayed in the New York Primary, it was a foregone conclusion that the Clinton Machine would pull out all the stops to cheat their way to victory on the April 27 “Super Tuesday”  (It seems like Super Tuesdays are becoming more frequent than “Trials of the Century.”). The signs were all there in Pennsylvania that the same criminal behavior Hillary’s minions practiced in the Big Apple would be on display in PA: forged absentee ballots, hacked electronic voting machines, mysteriously purged voter rolls.  Yesterday, one county alone had 900 registered Democrats “missing” on election day; another district had Hillary Clinton handbills on prominent display inside the polling place–that was caught on video–and the poll workers refused to remove the deceptive ads, which were made to look like paper ballots.

hillary_queen_usa

Queen Hillary’s coronation seems virtually assured, at least that is what all the corporate media pundits keep telling us.  In her arrogance, however, Wall Street Hillary, when asked whether she would meet the Sanders people “halfway” and adopt some of their reform agenda, shut down any talk of compromise.  She wants Sen. Sanders to bend the knee and pledge unquestioned allegiance to her and turn over her forces, “for the sake of party loyalty.”

You would think, at the very least, that by now Hillary and her Corporatist lackeys would have grasped what the Sanders Campaign is all about, even if they hated what it stood for.  While we all admire Bernie Sanders for his integrity and honesty, he has not attracted the mass following that he has simply on that alone.  Nor can his popularity be attributed to his charisma or youthful good looks.  No: first and foremost, people have responded to his message of reform and progress.

Bernie Sanders agenda is not just about breaking up the big banks and bringing the Banksters to account for their crimes: but also to create more & better paying  jobs; taking money out of the election process and protecting voting rights; stopping the TPP and repeal the other phony free trade deals that have savaged our economy; universal health care; strengthen and enlarge Social Security; free public university education; rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure; make primary and secondary public education public again and not a “profit center” for corporations; end the “Prison Industrial Complex” and stop imprisoning minority groups for petty infractions of the law; the list goes on and on.  As Bernie has emphasized over and over, this is not about one person or one election.  It is about a fundamental reform of America, a nation which has been ravaged by the bad economics of the GOP and their DINO allies in the Democratic Party ever since the 1980’s.

Hillary Clinton’s greed for Corporatist money is only exceeded by her lust for power.  Her and the DINO establishment, who have lost far more elections than they have ever won, cannot fathom, it seems, that Bernie Sanders is running on principles, not for personal gain.  Even if he were to sell out his ideals, simply for some political appointment, his mass movement will not troop along dociley and tow the Corporatist line, as Hillary and the other corrupt Establishment Dems want.

Help Us Bernie-wan

While there are still several primaries to go and it is still important for every reform minded individual to still turn out and vote for Bernie, we all need to recognize that the Sanders candidacy is not the end, but the end of the beginning (as Churchill once put it)!

Mark my words, there is a bitter convention fight looming, not for the nomination, but for the reform planks that Sen. Sanders advocates to be put into the Democratic Platform.

Wall Street Hillary’s backers do not want any genuine reforming of the financial system, or of the corrupt electoral process that they control, not to mention any of the other Progressive planks we so desperately need enacted.  The DINO’s will fight tooth and nail to keep any real and meaningful reform planks out of the platform.  Hillary wants nice sounding nostrums, to be sure; and she will promptly betray even those if elected. But any serious and sincere programs of Progressive reform, reforms that the American electorate could get behind? Oh No, God forbid that her real constituency, the 1% that is in currently in control of both parties, should be offended by the Democratic Party Platform.

After the Democratic Convention, whatever its outcome, all those who have united behind the banner of Bernie Sanders must realize that the real work, the real struggle, the real campaign, has only just begun.

 

 

 

 

The Empire struck back yesterday.  They will continue to do so all through this electoral year and beyond.  Through all of their evil machinations in BOTH parties, remember, we are a Rebel alliance, not just one man and not just one race.

There will be other battles ahead and new Jedi Gekkai of all ages, races, genders and creeds will be needed to succeed.  Perhaps even new political parties will be needed to break the stranglehold that the Corporatists have on on our nation–on the world–and if that is what it takes, that is what it takes.  The Republican Party, which was once a party of social justice and economic reform, was begun by handful of idealists gathering in a one room schoolhouse.

Fighting Bernie

The road is long, the road is hard, but the destination is worth the effort.

Is Donald Trump a Clinton Stalking Horse?

trump_wedding_clintons 2006
Trump and the Clintons have long been close allies; Trump may have started his candidacy as a favor to Bill and Hill, but there is no honor among thieves, even billionaire thieves.

 

In politics, a stalking horse is a public figure who either tests a concept or mounts a challenge against someone on behalf of an anonymous third-party.  For example, Eugene McCarthy served as an insurgent candidate in the 1968 Campaign in an attempt to unseat President Lyndon Johnson’s and keep him from running for a second term.

When he had a strong showing in the New Hampshire primary and proved there was a substantial sentiment for ousting the sitting President, Bobby Kennedy stepped in to mount a bid for the nomination, stealing McCarthy’s thunder. Kennedy was succeeding all the way to the California Primary, until he was murdered by yet another “lone assassin” (sic) in June of 1968.

In the case of McCarthy, he may not have realized he was doing Kennedy’s dirty work in going up against a very powerful sitting President and so his role as stalking horse may have been unwitting.  Kennedy operatives had convinced McCarthy to run and the Senator took the political risks while Bobby Kennedy watched on the sidelines; nevertheless, McCarthy was a Stalking Horse nonetheless.

In the present run for the White House, it has long been apparent that Donald Trump since the earliest phases of his candidacy was not behaving like a normal candidate and seemed, in fact, to be doing just about everything he could to be outrageous and get himself eliminated from the running, even as he disrupted the whole Republican primary system.

Before the race began Jeb Bush was Wall Street’s chosen Republican candidate, just as Hillary Clinton still is on the Democratic side.  In truth, Bush was eminently electable, not only being a moderate with broad appeal to the general electorate, but with a built-in appeal to Hispanics, a key Democratic demographic.  His wife is Mexican and he speaks fluent Spanish; certainly, as candidate he could easily have won against Hillary’s version of Wall Street Corporatism.

Of course, insofar as the billionaires who run our country were concerned, either candidate was acceptable–so long as Wall Street retained control of the political system.  However, after eight years of dog-whistle race-baiting and immigrant hating, the GOP establishment had made Bush’s primary run a much harder one, having enabled racists and right wing extremists to speak openly without fear of criticism.  So, despite all the money behind Jeb Bush, his candidacy went nowhere.  Instead, Trump did not just blow up Jeb’s run, but the Republican Party’s whole scheme.

Out of the blue in comes Trump, all full of piss and vinegar, to upsets the whole Repugnican game.  Already a media celebrity, The Donald comes out with one outrageous statement after another and the Great Unwashed eat it all up.  Although Donald Trump is a billionaire many times over, he is not, nor has he ever been, beholden to Wall Street or multi-national corporations for his wealth or candidacy.  His wealth was the result of real estate dealings, not manufacturing or international trade, which is why he has been willing to call out NAFTA and the TPP for the Corporatist scams they really are.

For all those not familiary with New York City and its rather unique cultural and social mix, Donald Trump, despite his billions, has always been looked down on by the Manhattan money crowd as a brash outsider.  He hails from Queens,  one of the Outer Bouroughs, which has always been regarded with disdain by the elite, not just of Wall Street, but of Manhattan in general.  An oil sheikh with a dozen wives would be more warmly greeted by the Manhattan elite than this Outer Bourough upstart–and that is regardless of whether they are left or right, Democratic or Republican.

In fact, the very large chip on Donald Trump’s shoulder with regards to Wall Street and the Manhattan elite may be a large part of his appeal to all the of blue collar and redneck Republicans who have propelled his insurgent candidacy forward.  The fact that Trump has come out solidly against the disasterous trade deals, like TPP, that have cost America millions upon millions of jobs, plus his rhetoric about creating jobs, is also something that resonates with working class voters, just as it has with Bernie Sanders supporters.

That Donald Trump has disrupted the GOP primary game is not in dispute; what some may find controversial is that, at least initially, he was doing so to aid the Clinton candidacy.  While this may seem a stretch to some, consider the facts: Donald Trump has long been on friendly terms with Bill and Hillary, donating to their cause (themselves) and it is no secret that the Clintons attended his wedding in 2005 his latest wife.  Hardly the actions of avowed enemies, no?

CNN recently posted an interesting video which contrasts Trumps current rhetoric against his earlier opinions of the Clintons dating back not only to 2008, but all the way back to the 90’s.  It is clear that his current criticisms of the Dynamic Duo, Bill & Hill, is a recent creation and almost certainly an artificial animosity, of a kind with Hillary’s opposition to the TPP and her alleged taking her friends on Wall Street to task.

While the 1% had the election rigged for their chosen candidates from the beginning, it seems obvious that the Clinton Machine had other ideas in mind.  They had no intention of running against a serious Republican contender, such as Jeb Bush, who conceivably have won the election.  In steps their old friend The Donald.  To him it was not about money–unlike the Democratic politicians they have bought and paid for across the country, Trump doesn’t need the Clinton’s cash. In fact, the Donald has been a generous donor to the nefarious Clinton Machine over the years.

No, Donald joined the Republican primary just for the fun of it, to see how much mayhem and confusion he could cause against the Wall Street establishment that has always looked down on him.  Trump’s candidacy resembled nothing so much as the scenario from the classic Mel Brooks movie The Producers. Two con artists decide to produce the worst play they could find, knowing that nobody ever questions the finances of a flop.  So they produce “Springtime for Hitler” assured that the play will close on opening night.  Well, guess what, like Springtime for Hitler, the Trump candidacy has become a runaway hit.

Trump being Trump, loves being the center of attention and being an egomaniac feeds on being the center of attention. What better forum for him than running for President? Now, with the success of his candidacy, all bets with his old friends the Clintons are off.  Trump still spews politically incorrect invectives, but one has to wonder is this just for media attention, or is Trump still trying to sabotage his Republican Presidential hopes?  The Donald may well be in it to win it now; only time will tell. But just as the Clintons have pulled every dirty trick in the book against the Sanders candidacy, so too have they sabotaged the entire Republican electoral machine in their avarice and hunger for power.

In their evil genius, one must concede the Clinton’s brilliance, even as one recognizes the massive corruption they have wrought on the Democratic Party.  The level and brazeness of the Clinton voting fraud perpetrated in the Democratic primaries far exceeds even Karl Rove’s vote rigging in the general election of 2oo4.   As far as the Republican Party is concerned, it was already thoroughly corrupt; the GOP’s only hope is if Hillary Clinton’s Corporatist presidency explodes in her face just as Nixon’s did due to Watergate.
