Wikileaks has released only 1% of the #PodestaEmails and they are devastating for Hillary Clinton, though most are talking about Trump’s lewd sexual comments which he made in private 11 years ago. However, let’s not ignore Hillary’s egregious behavior which she herself describes as “unsavory”.
The control Team Clinton has over the media is very concerning and it’s ethically corrupt.
The Clinton campaign apparently gave the ammunition to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos which he used to damage the author of Clinton Cash, Peter Schweitzer, as well as to demean his book when he appeared on “This Week”. The media is serving as an arm of the Democrat Party.
George Stephanopoulos has worked on the Bill Clinton campaign. He is still working on the Clinton campaign.
On April 26, 2015, Peter Schweizer appeared ABC’s “This Week” as part of the promotional tour for his newly released book, “Clinton Cash.” From the very beginning of the interview George Stephanopoulos attacked Schweizer.
People thought it was George protecting his friend Hillary.
But in Friday’s Wikileaks dump, Team Clinton brags about helping Stephanopoulos put down Peter Schweizer. One email proves the witness who said Hillary had nothing to do with the Uranium One deal was a person asking John Podesta for a job in the Clinton campaign.
The interview with Stephanopoulos was in attack mode from the beginning and nothing Schweitzer said was addressed or considered in a journalistic sense.
Stephanopoulos tried to say that the $145 million given to the Clinton Foundation and the lucrative speaking contracts by the recipients of the mine deal at the same time of the Uranium One deal was mere coincidence and Hillary was only one of nine who approved the deal so none of this matters.
The ABC anchor attacked Schweitzer as a partisan to destroy his credibility. It appears that Stephanopoulos followed the talking points given to him by the Clinton campaign. They certainly thought so and patted themselves on the back for it. Check it out.
On the day Schweizer was interviewed, J[Josh]Schwerin@hillaryclinton.com [a Clinton campaign spokesman] sent the transcript of the interview to the campaign’s rapid response team list [HRCrapid@googlegroups.com].
Another campaign spokesman Jesse Ferguson replied to Schwerin with an email to the team: great work everyone. this interview is perfect. he [Schweizer] lands nothing and everything is refuted (mostly based on our work)
Oren Shur, the campaign’s director of paid media who responded with, “nice work here.”
There is little doubt how and why this went down. It isn’t about telling the truth to the public, it’s about covering it up.
Jo Becker of the New York Times is a well-respected investigative journalist who uncovered the ties from the Clintons to the Uranium One deal which turned over a U.S. uranium mine that produces 20% of our uranium with the potential for 50% to the Russians, our worst geopolitical enemy.
Campaign press secretary Brian Fallon sent an email to Jo Becker and Mike McIntire of the NY Times that partly expressed the campaign’s disappointment that the Times didn’t ignore Schweizer’s research because he is a partisan:
At the outset, it is important to note that no one – neither Mr. Schweizer, nor the *Times*, nor anyone else — has ever produced a shred of evidence supporting the theory that Hillary Clinton ever took action as Secretary of State to support the interests of donors to the Clinton Foundation. Therefore, we are extremely disappointed that the *New York Times* intends to rely on research culled from a biased author like Mr. Schweizer. During our conversations with the *Times*, it has been unclear to what extent, if at all, the *Times*’ reporting goes beyond the allegations made in *Clinton Cash*. This is troubling because, as has been well documented already, the book’s author is a known Republican operative whose organization has links to the Koch brothers and a major donor to Ted Cruz. Moreover, the book’s rollout has been coordinated with another Republican presidential candidate, Rand Paul. It is worrisome that the Times would repeat the claims from such a questionable source.
Much of what was in this letter was used by Setphanopoulos in his attack interview against Schweitzer.
In the same email Fallon made the argument (also used by Stephanopoulos) that Hillary Clinton was not involved in the decision.
“Apart from the fact that the State Department was one of just nine agencies involved in CFIUS, it is also true that within the State Department, the CFIUS approval process historically does not trigger the personal involvement of the Secretary of State. The State Department’s principal representative to CFIUS was the Assistant Secretary of State for Economic, Energy and Business Affairs. During the time period in question, that position was held by Jose Fernandez. As you are aware, Mr Fernandez has personally attested that “Secretary Clinton never intervened with me on any CFIUS matter.”
However, in another Wikileaks email, we learn that five days before Fallon told the NY Times that the decision was all Fernandez’s without the involvement of Hillary Clinton, Jose Fernandez wrote an email to John Podesta thanking the campaign head for calling him. Mr. Fernandez also thanked Podesta for his advice in securing a position with the campaign:
John, It was good to talk to you this afternoon, and I appreciate your taking the time to call. As I mentioned, I would like to do all I can to support Secretary Clinton, and would welcome your advice and help in steering me to the right persons in the campaign.
This election isn’t about Trump and Clinton, it’s about the elite against the people, the Leftists against the freedom fighters, it’s about globalism against our Constitution.
New York Newsday, a left-wing newspaper, dedicated the cover and the first two pages to Trump’s crass comments. In one narrow column on page three, they wrote a minimalist story about Hillary’s emails. That is exactly how it is playing out in the media throughout the country.
Trump said he’s not the same man he was back then, especially since he has seen how people are living throughout the country. Let’s hope he means that. He had better do the best interview of his life Sunday.
Many Republican office holders, early jumpers, two in Alabama, are abandoning Donald Trump. Mike Lee wants him to leave the race. That’s a big deal and the rest of the GOP are likely waiting to see how tomorrow’s debate goes. We do, however, need to keep this in perspective.
Dr. Ben Carson and Donald Trump told Fox reporter Ed Henry they believe there is more and worse to come. People who dream of Trump withdrawing and being replaced can forget it. It’s too late. Trump’s name will remain on most ballots in far too many states.
Hillary, his horrific opponent, “dreams” of making our country a globalist, “open borders” hellhole and she could do it in record time.
Hillary is receiving millions from George Soros and her campaign is run by Soros’s doppelgänger, John Podesta. These men are not Socialists as they describe themselves, they are Communists. When you talk of open borders, Single Payer, crony Corporatism, and the Collective [Stronger Together], you are way past Socialism.
Venezuela, here we come!
Hillary told foreign bankers that she “dreams” of “open borders” and hemispheric “open trade” which means it will leave us in a position worse than the one Europe is in. Envision people – some drug cartels, some terrorists, all without loyalty to the US and the Constitution – from South America, Central America, Mexico, Canada who will have a North American citizenship pass to travel wherever they want in our country.
Think about what this means.
We will lose control of our country and that includes control of our elections.
Being citizens of the world means we will have some unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats in say, San Francisco, making all our decisions.
Our workers won’t have any advantage being American citizens because of the hemispheric open trade she envisions in our land without borders.
The Democrats have been lying through their teeth, saying Hillary does not want open borders, claiming it’s a right-wing conspiracy theory, yet, this is what she said.
In the transcripts of the speeches, she clearly said she will lie to the public and work back room deals and she admits what she is doing is “unsavory”.
“You just have to sort of figure out how to — getting back to that word, ‘balance’ — how to balance the public and the private efforts that are necessary to be successful, politically, and that’s not just a comment about today,” Clinton said in a speech for the National Multi-Housing Council on April 23, 2013. “It is unsavory, and it always has been that way, but we usually end up where we need to be. But 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 told foreign bankers that she wants open borders and hemispheric open trade.
“My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, some time in the future with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere,” Clinton told Banco Itau, a Brazilian bank, on May 16, 2013.

Our dismal choices but we need to put our Republic first. It’s becoming very difficult.
