The Clintons—unaccountable grifters

Clinton CashThe Clinton drama is back. Madam Hillary finally decided to throw her hat in the presidential ring one more time. And what an entrance that was! As a “Woman of the People”, Hillary was driven in a van named Scooby to Iowa. A van with tinted windows and driven by secret service, chased by the media paparazzi trying hard to get a glimpse of this woman. As if well rehearsed, Ms. Clinton visited a Chiplote restaurant where she ordered a simple meal: chicken burrito, while wearing sun glasses. Why eat a burrito while not interacting with the humans in the establishment? Guess was just for a photo op!  Of course, Bill was no place to be seen.

Hillary Clinton is afraid of the American people and the media.  Those pesky questions about her personal server and the deleted Emails should not need to be answered by her majesty Hillary.  As for Benghazigate, well “what difference at this point does it make?  And don’t bother asking about Whitewater, Travelgate, Vince Foster’s death, cattle’s futures, or missing documents; it is so yesterday and we must move on.

As former First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State, she is too powerful and important to have to answer to her peons; just inferior people who can’t understand she’s “the smartest woman” in the world.  But being smart does not necessarily makes her wise nor honest.

The criminality of keeping government documents in a personal Email system and deleting those she doesn’t want us to see is just secondary to the Clinton’s latest scandal:  selling out our country in exchange for millions of dollars to their “charitable” Clinton Foundation.  Charity Navigator, refuses to give the Clinton Foundation a rating:  “The Clinton family’s mega-charity took in more than $140 million in grants and pledges in 2013 but spent just $9 million on direct aid.The group spent the bulk of its windfall on administration, travel, and salaries and bonuses, with the fattest payouts going to family friends.”

Jonathan Allen of Vox reported that:  “At least 181 companies, individuals, and foreign governments that have given to the Clinton Foundation also lobbied the State Department when Hillary Clinton ran the place.” and “Bill Clinton accepted more than $2.5 million in speaking fees from 13 major corporations and trade associations that lobbied the U.S. State Department while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, an International Business Times investigation has found.”  Go to this link to read the corporations that gave donations:

The Clinton Foundation received donations of over $8 million and pledges of $20 million, from Interpipe, a company owned by Ukranian Victor Pinchuk, which was in violation of the sanctions against Iran by selling oil pipeline to it in 2011 and 2012.

According to Peter Schweizer in his book “Clinton Cash”, it was “Hillary’s State Department, working with USAID, the United States Agency for International Development, that would oversee America’s relief effort to Haiti after the devastating earthquake in 2010.  The government of Haiti set up the IHRC, Interim Haiti Recovery Commission to coordinate efforts and named co-chairs of the IHRC Executive Committee, Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive, and Bill Clinton himself.”  A system was created to transfer money via cell phones, the Haitian Mobile Money Initiative.  The company chosen to provide this service was a small unknown telephone service, Digicel, owned by Denis O’Brien, an Irish billionaire who had ties to Bill Clinton and had donated money to the Foundation.  Another small company that was awarded a gold permit was VCS Mining, which didn’t actually have much mining experience, but would soon have Hillary Clinton’s brother, Tony Rodham, on its board.”

 Every time we think the corruption cannot get any worse, here come the Clintons to prove us wrong again.  The Russian state-owned atomic agency Rosatom bought a 17% share in Uranium One, a Canadian owned company with uranium mines in Wyoming.  The deal was approved by a few agencies in the US, including the State Department while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.   Donations to The Clinton Foundation were received by investors in Uranium One between 2005 and 2001.  In addition, Bill Clinton received half million dollars in 2010 for a single speech in Moscow from a Kremlin affiliated bank.

What can be worse than allowing a Russian company to buy a majority interest in a Uranium mine on American soil in exchange for millions of dollars?   It sounds like a 007 movie with Comrade Putin playing Mr. Evil who wishes to control the world’s Uranium.  Why is Putin so interested in Russia being the largest producer of Uranium?  Do we understand how corrupt and treasonous this deal is?  We’re talking URANIUM! 

Uranium is a chemical element found in most rocks in concentrations of 2 to 4 ppm (parts per million).  Uranium sources are most abundant in Australia, Canada and Kazakhstan.  Other countries fairly rich in Uranium are Russia, USA, South Africa, Namibia, Niger, Brazil and Ukraine.  It is present in nature as three different isotopes:  U 238, the most abundant (over 99%), U 235 (0.7%) and U 234 (traces).  U 235 is the isotope that is fissile, that is, its atoms can split while releasing energy.  While U 238 is not fissile; it is “fertile”, that is when bombarded with neutrons it can become Pu 239 (Plutonium) which is fissile.

Scientists can either enrich Uranium sources so as to obtain larger amounts of U 235, or use U 238 to produce Pu 239.  Either way nuclear energy is obtained.  The latter method uses a breeder reactor.  Both can be used for producing electricity and radioisotopes, as well as atomic weapons.  For atomic weapons the Uranium 235 and Plutonium 239 must be enriched over 90%.   In a nuclear reactor, the fission chain reaction can be controlled to create enough heat to produce steam which spins a turbine to drive a generator, producing electricity.  Several countries in the world use nuclear reactors for over 30% of their electricity, among them most European countries:   Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, and Ukraine.

Russia also provides natural gas to western Europe via its company Gazprom which was set up in 1989 as the first “private” company but with the state controlling over fifty per cent of shares.  It controls one-fifth of world gas reserves and supplies over 25% of natural gas of European countries.

Let us now connect the dots.  Putin plays the game much better than Obama.  Putin made his career and deceitfulness serving in the KGB.  He understands that he who controls energy and nuclear weapons controls the world.  Energy is the blood of a country; it gives life and movement; it commands its economy and its national security.  Countries that depend on other countries for its energy can easily become subservient and powerless to direct their own destiny.  Not only can Putin take over Ukraine (rich in Uranium mines) but he can blackmail the USA with his capacity to export Uranium to Iran.

It has never been enough for Bill and Hillary Clinton.  The more power they have and the wealthier they become, the more they want.  With the Clintons we always find a new low for the bottom of the barrel.   After a tumultuous and corrupt eight years of the Clinton administration, many thought the George W. Bush administration would help clean up the mess; investigate the scandals; and bring the guilty to justice.  Instead, we were treated to W’s “compassionate conservatism” that not only didn’t investigate the scandals but ended up welcoming the Clintons into the Bush family.  Bill Clinton became another son for Bush Sr. and a brother to Bush Jr.  Hillary Clinton was awarded by Governor Jeb Bush for her service to our country.

George W. Bush, had no business forgiving corruption in the name of all American citizens.  He acted on this as a personal matter instead of as the President who was to serve the People.


Of Heroes, Traitors and Wimps

Hillary Clinton And Benjamin Netanyahu Meet In Washington

The past few weeks we have been bombarded with more scandals and corruption. It is now to be expected practically weekly, if not daily. Today’s blog is dedicated to my random thoughts on the people making the news lately:  Heroes, Traitors, and Wimps. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, March 3 about the danger of having a nuclear Iran.   He believes the deal President Obama is making with Iran is very dangerous and came to warn Americans and clearly stated his position, much unlike our President.   He warned us that not only Iran will develop a nuclear arsenal soon but will also develop an intercontinental ballistic missile program.  He cautioned us about Iran’s terrorist connections, seizing Yemeni and expanding control to Iraq and Syria.  It took an Israeli leader to speak up and warn the American people of the dangers when dealing with Iran.  Benjamin Netanyahu is a hero; has always been and will never give up to terrorists.  Speaker Boehner deserves our thanks for inviting him to speak in Congress, despite the numerous media criticisms.  Some Democrats decided not to attend while Nancy Pelosi acted again as the childish wealthy brat she is.  They and their President are the traitors, trying to sell us a dangerous deal so the President gets his legacy.

Too bad that right after such magnificent performance by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, Speaker Boehner decided to accept full funding for DHS,  including money for illegal aliens in the unconstitutional Obama executive order for amnesty.  In just a few hours, John Boehner went from hero to traitor.  Any government official who allows and approves of an unconstitutional executive order is a traitor.  John Boehner didn’t care about the validity of this order as long as it complied with the wishes of the Chamber of Commerce.  Shame on you Mr. Speaker!  It is time for you to retire, the sooner the better.  And let us not forget the equally treasonous Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.  He promised much to Republicans if only they got him elected Majority leader but has since shown he has zero backbone.  That week there was only one hero in Washington DC and his name is Benjamin Netanyahu! Shortly after this display of cowardice by our wimpy Republicans, one bright light shone in DC:  the newly elected and youngest member of the US Senate, Tom Cotton, wrote a letter to the Iranian leaders about their nuclear deal with President Obama.  It reminded them that any deal by the President must be approved by the US Senate to be valid.  It was a great lesson on our Constitution not only to the Iranian mullahs but to our own President.  The letter was signed by 46 other Republican senators.  Senator Cotton was a war hero in Iraq & Afghanistan and, continues to be a hero in the Senate today.  Even though some Democrats agree with him, they dared not sign the letter for fear of repercussions from the Obama administration.  They were the wimps of the week!

And as if we don’t have enough scandals and corruption in the Obama administration, here come the Clintons again.  It was revealed by the New York Times and other news media including Fox News, that Hillary Clinton had kept a personal Email and server for all her State Department official business.  After almost a week Hillary Clinton gave a press conference in which she admitted having kept a personal account and a home server for all of her official business when she was Secretary of State.  She showed her usual arrogance by stating that it was done for convenience, not having to carry with her two phones and concluding that all official Emails had been turn over to the State Department after she had conveniently deleted the personal Emails. Not only Mrs. Clinton conveniently deleted Emails corresponding to the dates around the Benghazi incident on September 11, 2012; but it is known that foreign money to the Clinton Foundation was received during the years when she acted in the official capacity as Secretary of State.  While Hillary Clinton continues her path for more wealth and power, her husband Bill seems to have never learned the lesson with the Lewinsky scandal.  Bill Clinton’s friend,  Jeffrey Epstein, is a financier who was arrested in 2008 for soliciting underage prostitutes.  A new lawsuit has revealed that Bill Clinton took multiple trips to Epstein’s private island where he ‘kept young women as sex slaves’.   Can anyone believe Bill didn’t participate on the island’s orgies?

The Clintons never learned any lessons because no one ever held them accountable for their abuse of power.  When George W. Bush became President, all decent law abiding Americans were hoping his administration would bring accountability for the Clinton’s administration scandals.  Instead, the Bush family decided to “adopt” Bill Clinton as another son of George H.W. Bush and Hillary as their daughter-in-law who was presented with an award by Jeb Bush for her public service. Once again Bill and Hillary Clinton are the traitors and the Bush family have become enablers, not just simple wimps.  Hopefully we will still find a hero on this major corruption scandal, perhaps Congressman Trey Gowdy will finally subpoena Hillary Clinton, her server, and all her communications.

After almost a year of debate, the Army charged Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.  If convicted he could serve a life prison sentence.   An independent review by the Government Accountability Office —” said President Obama broke the law in authorizing the release of five Taliban detainees held by the United States in exchange for Bergdahl without consulting Congress.”  One more treasonous act by President Obama who seems to prefer those with anti-American sentiments.  Bergdahl is a traitor but the soldiers in his units are true patriots.  Six of them were interviewed by Megyn Kelly on Fox News; and all six told us the truth:  that Bergdahl had abandoned his post and his fellow soldiers to go looking for the Taliban.  They brought this truth in the open for everyone to know.  Then the wimps of the New York Times decided that Bergdahl should be forgiven because he already had suffered enough at the hands of the Taliban.  Did he not seek them?  He only gets what he deserves!

And last, here comes election news again.  We will have almost two years of constant polling, interviews of candidates, pro-Hillary comments and gotcha questions for Republicans  by our treasonous news media.  Not even Fox News is exempt from the carnival atmosphere we face beginning now.  Let us prepare ourselves by not watching or listening to much of the political news until we are ready to make up our minds.  Each of us can and should do his/her own vetting of the candidates and make a much better decision than if we constantly listen to the news media.

Good luck!
