You need to read this! If true [and WikiLeaks hasn't been wrong yet], this is why Obama is lying about Russia (falsely blaming Russia for hacking the DNC right now: he has zero proof, and everyone who knows anything about hacking knows it full well!): to take the spotlight off REAL news that's being released.
... the email that will likely cause the most damage to Clinton’s campaign is titled “HRC Paid Speeches.” This email exposes transcript excerpts from her paid speeches which were closed to the public and the press, including those given to Goldman Sachs. They confirm what many have long suspected about Hillary’s real political views. In the transcripts, which you can read here, Clinton expresses that she is both pro-KeystoneXL and pro-TTP (free trade) – positions she has declined publicly. Clinton’s speeches to Wall Street banks will likely be very difficult to “spin”, as she told Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank that Wall Street were held accountable for the 2008 crisis for solely political reasons and to appease the public. Clinton said that the blame placed on the United States banking system for the crisis “could have been avoided in terms of both misunderstanding and really politicizing what happened.” She also said that public perception of the rigged system must be controlled in order to maintain public trust. She also said that financial reform “really has to come from the industry itself,” expressing her view that Wall Street should police itself. She also said she “did all I could to make sure [Wall Street] continued to prosper” after 2008 and also said that she depends on Wall Street money for funding.
Most concerning of all to Clinton’s campaign is that she explains away her misrepresentation of her views to public as being born out of the necessity to have “a private and public position on policy.” To quote directly from Clinton’s words: “If everybody’s watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. So, you need both a public and a private position.” She said the public/private position dichotomy is “necessary to be successful, politically” and said this was true throughout all of American history. Essentially, Clinton admits that everything she says publicly is done so for political gain and does not reflect her true, “private” views. [That's exactly the neocon philosophy/ideology: lie! That's what they do. They lie and lie and lie.]
Other emails will have implications for Podesta himself as some emails on Podesta’s server were overtly racist. [Source: http://buff.ly/2cY3cLM%5D
If you read the emails without context, then you can come to a benign conclusion. However, Hillary lied about not knowing the CIA was shipping weapons from Libya through Turkey to jihadis in Syria there to overthrow Assad's secular government to install an Islamic state with rather hardline positions to say the least.
That's only one thing out of many, many.
If you want to ignore what she did in Honduras (she gave the public position that it was not a coup while knowing it was most certainly a coup), then you can read the email as benign rather than more circumstantial evidence mounding up to "preponderance," as in guilt.
The "complex and ever evolving political strategy" is "liberal interventionism" often in direct opposition to democracy here and in other nation-states.
I don't know of anyone suggesting that she can't have a confidential discussion. I have confidential discussions without having a public versus private position. Don't you see the difference?
My public views are my private views. If I'm formulating or negotiating, etc., then my public position will be that: "I'm in discussions and will make a public statement about my position when appropriate." That's not Hillary's style and isn't remotely what the emails suggest she's about.
All of that said, I found the bit about interpreting Hillary's statements as meaning that "Essentially, Clinton admits that everything she says publicly is done so for political gain and does not reflect her true, “private” views" is stretching too much. I don't, however, agree that Hillary is not a proven liar whose lies promote people jumping to overly stretched conclusions.
While we're on the subject of jumping to public conclusions, let's not forget that Hillary Clinton has been lying and lying and lying that Russia hacked the DNC, etc. Now, Barack Obama has joined in with the lying in a highly timed fashion. The US government has only reason to suspect. It does not have proof. Yet, the propagandists have been set the obvious task of painting the story as if the US as definite proof. They barely mention that they don't. When they do mention it, it's only to be able to say "we didn't lie," which is a form of dishonesty. You know that.
Plus, Hillary continues to lie that Iran has a nuclear-weapons program/plan. She has no such knowledge and can't pretend she hasn't been told that the US intelligence community issued a formal review stating that Iran has no such program and didn't have one while the US administration was claiming otherwise.
Now, you can believe she's a complete ignoramus and idiot and bad listener when the spooks and hacks say no about Russia and Iran, etc., but if you read all of WikiLeaks' leaks about her statements made during and after Honduras and see her sign off on tens of thousands of emails with "C" for confidential/classified, then I suggest that you're stretching things to arrive at the conclusion that there's no beef in the recent release.
She destroyed tens of thousands of emails while under investigation. She, and those around her, made a deal with the FBI to destroy computer drives that may well be needed in the future.
Then there's the "Clinton Cash" issue and the huge conflicts of interest with Bill following her or leading her from country to country making millions on speeches and gaining huge donations, etc.
We still don't know where all the money went for Haiti. Bill refused to show the trail. Meanwhile, Hillary backed a Papa and Baby Doc element to lead the country.
Is Trump bad? He's a mess. Is Hillary better? At least Trump has refused to lie about Russia to rev up war and war profits. You do know that Hillary is about the military industrial complex and US, corporate, Wall Street empire, right?
Don't compartmentalize to the extent that you don't see the big picture and what's at stake: WWIII! She's dangerous, more dangerous in that regard than even Trump. That's my view; and I say it's backed by the facts, many of which I've just cited.
I could go on and on and on about Bill and Hillary and Wall Street and all the other issues down through the decades (and there's "beef" there aplenty). Do I need to, to convince you that you should not be supporting her but should be supporting someone who better fits your real views: perhaps Jill Stein?
At least Jill has the brains to know that a "no-fly zone" enforced on Russia in Syria is an invitation to war. Putin knows it. He knows that the neocons and Hillary have planned for him and for Russia what has happened in country after country after country and even though Putin and Russia have been by far the saner parties in this US-Russia conflict.
Add the DNC working for Hillary against Bernie.
Add the "Victory Fund" sleight of hand.
Add Hillary claiming she was under sniper fire and had to duck and run. It's endless.
You know about Mena, Arkansas, right? Why do you think the Bushes and Bill get along so well? It was about CIA drug running and using proceeds in class and race warfare right here in the US. I studied it in great detail. It happened! Read Daniel Hopsicker and others on it.
Remember the Church Committee? Remember all the stuff that came out? It was just more of the same. There's tons of it.
Do you know the true story about Serbia? That was a railroad job to Balkanize Tito's Yugoslavia. It all came out later, but the US corporate mainstream media (now backing Hillary) didn't want to shine a light on it. Why not?
Didn't the Pentagon Papers radicalize you? Do you think things have changed, that Barack Obama isn't on board with "the imperial plan," isn't benefiting from it, isn't going to become richer and richer and richer because of it?
Do you know what really happened in Georgia and Ukraine? It wasn't Putin's doing. That's a fact. It was the neocons, just like in Iraq, just like in Central America before that.
You know that Hillary wants Bill to run the economy, right? He's still saying the legislation he backed didn't cause the problems: Great Recession: http://www.demos.org/blog/9/11/15/owning-consequences-clinton-and-repeal-glass-steagall
If Hillary wins the election, are you really going to think that it wasn't because she was the more powerful of the two in the corrupt system? Honestly?
What will Donald Trump do now that he's been constantly attacked by Hillary Clinton's team and supporters, including the media and her GOP fellow-traveler neocons?
I can't say exactly where the truth starts and stops in all of this Clinton v. Trump stuff, but I do know that whatever Trump has done or said, it pales next to what Hillary and Bill Clinton have actually done. Are these women totally lying?
The following should appear at the end of every post:
According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":
Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.
Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.
Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.
Political Campaign Intervention
Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.
Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.
Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:
- Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
- Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
- Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
- Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
- Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office
Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:
- The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
- Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
- We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
- When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
- It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
- We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
- We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
- When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
- We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
- It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.
And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
