Bill Clinton and the Selling of America’s National Security

This may be the greatest scandal in 50 years of American history. It makes Watergate look like a jay walking charge. It makes the Iran Contra affair look like a small time operation. This is what House Republicans should have Impeached Bill Clinton for instead of lying about a White House Intern giving him head in the Oval Office. It’s called treason.

PART ONE: RUSSIA

Bill Clinton is at the center of the greatest foreign policy deceit ever perpetrated on the American people. He used the power of his office to allow the selling and delivery of high tech missile defense components to governments of countries that are listed as threats to this country and the stability of the world. Russia was one of the benefactors of deals Clinton made without proper authorization from Congress. Ignoring CIA and Pentagon reports that showed how Russia was continuing a major and secretive modernization program for its strategic nuclear missile systems, Clinton allocated over $1 billion to “help” the Soviets “dismantle” their nuclear weapons. In 1995 the General Accounting Office (GAO) wrote that Moscow refuses to permit American audits of the $1.25 billion disarmament aid. This is an important issue because it allowed the Russians to use American taxpayer’s money to build new offensive nuclear weapons that directly threaten the United States.

Under U.S. law, no money can be spent in Russia until the Clinton administration certified that Moscow is not engaged in any military modernization program that exceeds legitimate defense requirements. The Clinton administration along with U.S. Air Force General Eugene Habiger, the commander of U.S. Nuclear forces signed off on the Russian aid package after returning from an exploratory trip to Russia to investigate construction of a huge secret underground base in the Ural mountains. True, the base is as big as the entire area of Washington D.C. and is defensive in purpose. In addition to the base, the Russians built two cities to house the more than 30,000 workers involved in the project. By 1996 authorities had barred defense attaches from going into the facility.

Known as Yamantau Mountain (translates to ‘evil mountain’), the facility is being constructed to offer a safe place to retaliate in the event of an American nuclear attack. To me, this represents a direct conflict of interest. Clinton gives the Russians over one billion dollars to help them take down their nuclear weapons but instead they use that money to build a huge bunker where they can wage nuclear war on the U.S…

PART TWO: CHINA

In 1996 President Bill Clinton, at a fund raising dinner in New York City said this: “There are no more nuclear missiles pointed at any children in the United States. I’m proud of that.” But by 1998, the CIA’s National Intelligence Daily stated that “thirteen of China’s 18 long-range intercontinental ballistic missiles are targeted on the United States.” How could such a discrepancy occur? When did Clinton know and what did he do to prevent this dangerous situation? These are valid questions and in light of Clinton’s involvement in Russia’s nuclear weapons advancements, I shudder to think that this too was a result of Clinton’s business dealings.

CNN reported how China has been stealing our most sensitive nuclear secrets in an article dated May 25, 1999 and posted on their website. The article was called: China stole U.S. nuke secrets to ‘fulfill international agenda’ . The article reveals that China has been stealing the most sensitive nuclear secrets for several decades and despite high-level knowledge of the thefts, security at U.S. nuclear labs still “does not meet even minimal standards.” The CNN article goes on to state that President Clinton had known since 1995 and yet little was done about it.

Giuliani: Press Ignores Signs of Clinton’s Illness

Continuing with the narrative that Hillary Clinton is unfit to be president, Rudy Giuliani, an adviser with Donald Trump’s campaign, claimed Sunday there are videos online that show Clinton has an illness.

Giuliani said on “Fox News Sunday” that Clinton has “an entire media that constantly demonizes Donald Trump.”

The former New York City mayor went on to say the media fail to point out how she has not held a news conference in over 200 days and her “several signs of illness.”

The media “fails to point out several signs of illness by her; all you gotta do is go online,” Giuliani said, before being interrupted by host Shannon Bream, who pointed out that Clinton’s campaign has said there is no factual evidence to support those claims.

“Go online and put down ‘Hillary Clinton illness,’ take a look at the videos yourself,” Giuliani continued.

Giuliani’s comments are the latest from the Trump campaign questioning Clinton’s stamina and health. Last week, Trump told Sean Hannity of Fox News that Clinton “doesn’t really do that much. She’ll give a speech on a teleprompter, and then she’ll disappear. I don’t know if she goes home [and] goes to sleep. I think she sleeps.”

Clinton’s campaign has since called those claims “deranged conspiracy theories” and has recirculated a 2015 letter from internist Lisa Bardack that said Clinton was in good health…

Houston NAACP Chapter Speaks After White Lives Matter Protest

HOUSTON- Dozens of people gathered outside the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People headquarters in Third Ward Sunday for a White Lives Matter protest.

White Lives Matter protesters, holding American and Confederate flags, were at the NAACP around noon. As time passed, the crowd started to grow, prompting the arrival of police on horseback and the placement barricades.

“We came here because the NAACP headquarters is here and that’s one of the most racist groups in America,” Scott Lacy said.

Huma Abedin Worked at a Radical Muslim Journal for a Dozen Years

She was also working in the White House as an intern for then-First Lady Clinton

Hillary Clinton’s top campaign aide, and the woman who might be the future White House chief of staff to the first female US president, for a decade edited a radical Muslim publication that opposed women’s rights and blamed the US for 9/11.

One of Clinton’s biggest accomplishments listed on her campaign Web site is her support for the UN women’s conference in Bejing in 1995, when she famously declared, “Women’s rights are human rights.” Her speech has emerged as a focal point of her campaign, featured prominently in last month’s Morgan Freeman-narrated convention video introducing her as the Democratic nominee.

However, soon after that “historic and transformational” 1995 event, as Clinton recently described it, her top aide Huma Abedin published articles in a Saudi journal taking Clinton’s feminist platform apart, piece by piece. At the time, Abedin was assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs working under her mother, who remains editor-in-chief. She was also working in the White House as an intern for then-First Lady Clinton.

Will We Let Them Steal the Election Again?

I have been writing about vote fraud since 1993. And yet, despite the overwhelming evidence, electronic and human fraud has been stealing our elections for more than four decades, Americans continue to go to the polls every two years using easily hacked machines. There is a considerable movement in my estimation regarding vote fraud but not enough Americans have said enough is enough to their state legislatures.

Not enough candidates and general population voters have stormed their state capitols and demanded ALL forms of electronic voting get scrapped and return to hand counted PAPER ballots in front of selected precinct watchers from all parties. Not enough voters have stormed their state capitols and demanded a crack down on absentee ballots AND purging voter rolls of illegal aliens, deceased and any other category that bars someone from voting. Not enough voters have demanded Congress repeal the Motor Voter Act of 1993 which opened the flood gates to vote fraud.

The result has been good, decent, qualified candidates losing against congressional incumbents for decades…

A Hamilton Cop Tried to Plant a Gun at His House; Now He’s Speaking Up

Hamilton cop Robert Hansen thought Darren Mork could use some jail time.

Mork didn’t know Hansen, but to the guns and gangs unit officer, Mork was a suspected drug trafficker.

In May 2012, Hansen got to work trying to make that jail time happen and tried to frame Mork by planting a gun at his home.

Now, Hansen is facing jail time after being convicted for actions a judge called a form of “vigilante justice.” And Mork, telling the story from his perspective for the first time, is set to launch a civil suit against Hansen and the Hamilton Police Service.

Luis Fleischman: Support for Democracy in Latin America Slowly Tilts Towards the Positive

In his recent visit to Peru, Venezuelan opposition leader, the president of Peru, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, warmly received Henrique Capriles Radonski. Mr. Kuczynski openly expressed his support for the Venezuelan opposition as well as for the referendum aimed at recalling Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. Maduro controls the Electoral Council and has gotten his accomplices there to keep delaying the timing of the recall vote and also uses the Council to reject signatures of eligible voters by making false claims against them.

Although Kuczynski made clear that he does not want to interfere in Venezuelan internal affairs, he expressed full commitment to democratic rule. He has been very consistent. As Venezuela faces a perilous economic situation, Kuczynski urged the World Bank and the Inter-American Bank for Development to come to the rescue of the Caribbean country. However, Kaczynski also criticized Maduro’s treatment of the elected parliamentary opposition and the incarceration of political dissidents. He made it very clear that this kind of behavior “should not be allowed in Latin America in the 21st century”. In July, Kuczynski again denounced the Venezuelan government stating, “Venezuela is a problem in our neighborhood” and a violator of “fundamental human rights.”

The reality is that the Peruvian president, an economist and a scholar, who won the election by a narrow margin, has been the first president in the region since former Colombian president, Alvaro Uribe to denounce the Venezuelan regime. So far, other sitting Latin American presidents have chosen to ignore Chavez and Maduro’s assault on democracy, human rights, and legality. They have acted like this in order not to lose the advantages of Latin American regional integration…

‘Borders Are the Worst Invention Ever!’ EU Chief Jean-Claude Juncker Widens Rift With European Leaders as He Calls for Open Borders

Under-fire EU chief Jean-Claude Juncker risked widening divisions with European leaders today by saying borders were the ‘worst invention ever’.

He called for all borders across Europe to be opened, despite the chaos caused over the last year from the flood in refugees fleeing Syria and the wave of terror attacks hitting various continent’s cities.

The remarkable comments will further undermine Mr Juncker’s precarious position as European Commission President.

He has faced repeated calls to quit after his failure to keep Britain in the EU and the refugee and Greek debt crises.

Today he accepted the Commission ‘deserves criticism’ but insisted national government’s ‘have to share the blame’.

Speaking at the Alpbach Media Academy this morning, Mr Juncker said: ‘Borders are the worst invention ever made by politicians.’

The contentious remarks from the Brussels chief are the polar opposite of moves by elected leaders of EU member states who have tighten their borders over recent months after more than a million entered the bloc from Syria in less than a year…

Put Pigs’ Heads on Border Fence to Keep Out Migrants, Says Top Politician

A HUNGARIAN politician has caused uproar by saying pigs’ heads should be impaled on border fences to deter migrants.

The besieged nation already put scarecrows made of vegetables on the frontier in a bid to fool arrivals into believing fences are manned — but MEP Gyorgy Schopflin suggested that a more macabre deterrent should be brought in.

The MEP said because pork is “haram”, or forbidden in Islam, it would keep out Muslim migrants.

Almost Everything the Media Tell You About Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity is Wrong

“Some of the most frequently heard claims about sexuality and gender are not supported by scientific evidence,” science journal says

A major new report, published today in the journal The New Atlantis, challenges the leading narratives that the media has pushed regarding sexual orientation and gender identity.

Co-authored by two of the nation’s leading scholars on mental health and sexuality, the 143-page report discusses over 200 peer-reviewed studies in the biological, psychological, and social sciences, painstakingly documenting what scientific research shows and does not show about sexuality and gender.

The major takeaway, as the editor of the journal explains, is that “some of the most frequently heard claims about sexuality and gender are not supported by scientific evidence.”

Here are four of the report’s most important conclusions:..

  1. “The woman is reportedly mentally ill, and of Asian descent.”

    So they are using the British media method of cloaking the identity of terror attackers by referring to them as “Asian”. That probably still fools a few punters.

  2. This guy, Jean-Cluade Juncker, he needs about 1000 EU citizens to welcome themselves into his property and home. Your property line is a border. The walls of your house are a border. *Explicative* hypocrite. Better yet 1000 non-EU citizens. – ‘Borders Are the Worst Invention Ever!’
