The stats in the image above are just from last night. In the period between last Friday evening, October 7, to Thursday morning, October 13, the morning and evening news shows on ABC, CBS and NBC spent 4 hours and 13 minutes reporting on accusations against Donald Trump for sexual harassment and/or assault, while the revelations from Wikileaks regarding Hillary Clinton’s staff’s emails received coverage for a paltry 36 minutes. That is literally a 7-to-1 ratio.
UPDATE – Her campaign put it out and now watch her lie about it from 2008:
It wasn’t so long ago the elite media liked to ask Republicans, “Do YOU think Obama is a Muslim? Are YOU questioning his patriotism?” When in fact they should have been asking Democrats aligned with Hillary Clinton.
In a group email exchange Hillary’s inner circle was having a discussion on how to push “negative facts” about Barack Obama.
Included in the discussion are:
John Podesta, Hillary’s campaign chairman.
Kristi Fuksa, a pollster with the Democratic firm Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research.
Paul Begala, political strategist for the 1992 Clinton for President Campaign.
Tara McGuiness, Senior Vice President at the Center for American Progress, the Clinton’s pet think tank.
Tom Matzzie, a former director of MoveOn
Susan Buffet, serves on the board of several foundations and charities, several of which walk a delicate legal line of serving the interests of the Democratic Party, a technique mastered by George Soros.
Here is the email with the “negative facts”:
UPDATE – The Washington Post asked Paul Begala about this. He said that they called this “The McCain Survey” because they were worried that Republicans would attack Obama using these talking points.
So we are to believe that very early in the 2008 primary when the Clinton’s and the Obama’s hated each other, Hillary’s inner circle was concerned about what Republicans might say about him? Of course McCain himself never pushed these talking points aside from the tax raising. McCain even said, “You have nothing to fear from an Obama Presidency”
From the great Antonio F. Branco, posted at Legal Insurrection:
Thanks to WikiLeaks obtaining the emails from Hillary for President campaign top staffers we have gotten some real insights into just how off the charts Orwellian, dishonest and in some cases criminal these people really are.
In this email dated March 16, 2016 John Podesta, Hilllary’s campaign chairman, Brent J. Budowsky, a political reporter from The Hill and Huffington Post, and Roy Spence, a noted ad agency CEO, are discussing how Hillary can borrow some of Bernie’s ideas in an effort to attract his voters. They also are very candid about Hillary having a problem with lying.
UPDATE II Video: Newt Gingrich and Meghan McCain Blast FBI Director Comey for Corruption:
Fox News has confirmed through two different sources that the entire investigative team of over 100 FBI agents and lawyers wanted Hillary prosecuted and at the very least have her security clearance permanently revoked.
The decision to let Hillary Clinton off the hook for mishandling classified information has roiled the FBI and Department of Justice, with one person closely involved in the year-long probe telling FoxNews.com that career agents and attorneys on the case unanimously believed the Democratic presidential nominee should have been charged.
The source, who spoke to FoxNews.com on the condition of anonymity, said FBI Director James Comey’s dramatic July 5 announcement that he would not recommend to the Attorney General’s office that the former secretary of state be charged left members of the investigative team dismayed and disgusted. More than 100 FBI agents and analysts worked around the clock with six attorneys from the DOJ’s National Security Division, Counter Espionage Section, to investigate the case.
“No trial level attorney agreed, no agent working the case agreed, with the decision not to prosecute — it was a top-down decision,” said the source, whose identity and role in the case has been verified by FoxNews.com.
A high-ranking FBI official told Fox News that while it might not have been a unanimous decision, “It was unanimous that we all wanted her [Clinton’s] security clearance yanked.”
“It is safe to say the vast majority felt she should be prosecuted,” the senior FBI official told Fox News. “We were floored while listening to the FBI briefing because Comey laid it all out, and then said ‘but we are doing nothing,’ which made no sense to us.”
UPDATE – Peter Schweitzer, a famed author and investigator for the Government Accountability Institute, reports that his sources say the same:
UPDATE II – New York Post – Did the FBI chief lie to Congress about the Hillary email probe?
UPDATE III – Former US Atty for District of Columbia Joe DiGenova explains the outrageous behavior of FBI Director James Comey with the simple declaration: “Comey is a dirty cop”, and in this interview makes his case to support that. October 13, 2016 interview with Laura Ingraham.
This is not the kind of thing that just gets randomly picked to be in your retirement portfolio….
International finance and money laundering just seem to go together like bacon and eggs, death and taxes, politics and corruption….and Hillary says that it is Trump who is too close to Putin?
Please pardon the length of the quote, international finance and corporations can get pretty arcane.
Emails released this week by Wikileaks indicate John Podesta, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, laundered shares of stock he received from an energy company cited in the Panama Papers money-laundering probe that has received funding from the Russian government.
WND reported Oct. 6 Podesta had been paid an undisclosed amount for serving on the executive board of Joule Global Stichting, an appointment he neglected to report to regulatory authorities in the U.S.
He also has received consulting fees from the Wyss Foundation, a group controlled by Swiss billionaire Hansjoerg Wyss, an investor in Joule Energy, according to Peter Schweizer’s Government Accountability Institute in a report, “From Russia with Money: Hillary Clinton, the Russian Reset, and Cronyism.”
Joule Global Stichting and Joule Global Holdings figure prominently as a client of the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, which is at the heart of the Panama Papers investigation into offshore money-laundering operations on a massive international scale.
WND reported Russian entities that funneled money to Joule and its related companies, and ultimately to Podesta, include Viktor Vekselberg, a controversial Russian billionaire investor with ties to Vladimir Putin and the Russian government.
Vekselberg owns the Renova Group, a multi-billion dollar private Moscow-based Russian conglomerate with interests in oil, energy and telecommunication held in Russia, Switzerland, Italy, South Africa and the United States.
Vekselberg is a board member of Rusnano, the Russian State Investment Fund, as well as president of the Skolkovo Foundation, named for Russia’s version of Silicon Valley.
Rusnano made a multi-million dollar investment in Joule Unlimited, a small Massachusetts-based energy company owned by Joule Global Holdings B.V. in the Netherlands and Joule Global Stichting, the ultimate controlling entity.
On Jan. 6, 2014, Mark Solakian, a senior vice president and general counsel with Joule Unlimited, emailed Podesta, confirming that Podesta had exercised 75,000 shares of 100,000 options in Joule Unlimited. Podesta had been issued the shares in 2011 in partial compensation for his work on the Joule board of directors.
Secondly, Solakian confirmed Podesta had transferred the resulting 75,000 common shares of Joule Unlimited to Leonidio LLC in a transaction that most likely would prevent the stock shares from showing up directly as an asset owned in any financial statement Podesta prepared.
The denials are already flying:
WND reached Bournakis by telephone in Salt Lake City, and he confirmed that 5835 Waterbury in Salt Lake City was his home apartment address. Bournakis denied knowing anything about John Podesta or Leonidio LLC, the company registered under his name.
Growing irritated by the phone call, Bournakis firmly denied he knew anything about the transfer of 75,000 shares of Joule Unlimited stock that Podesta made to Leonidio LLC.

UPDATE – Brietbart has obtained some other interesting documents HERE.
Hillary has memorized every bad thing Donald Trump has ever done. Quite the accomplishment for someone who testified “I don’t recall” hundreds of times in recent years to avoid prosecution….and now add 21 more.
Hillary Clinton used variations of ‘I don’t recall’ 21 times when asked 25 questions under oath about how she deleted 33,000 State Department emails.
Sworn written testimony obtained by Judicial Watch show the Democratic presidential candidate dodged virtually all of the questions about the correspondences she removed from her private server while she was Secretary of State.
A federal judge ordered Clinton’s legal team to turn over written responses to questions concerning the so-called ‘homebrew’ server.
Clinton signed the document containing the answers, written by her lawyers on her behalf, on Monday under ‘penalty of perjury’.
UPDATE! Even CNN took Hillary to task in early September for telling the judge “I don’t Recall” 39 times:
While most people have either over heard or even participated in locker-room conversations at some point in their life, I have never seen the kind of contemptuous language and “let them eat cake” kind of demeanor shown repeatedly in these emails among Hillary’s inner circle. They are talking about the people they are supposed to be serving. Do you talk like this? As for yours truly, I don’t know anyone who does.
Those darn Latinos, so needy they are, according to John Podesta, Hillary’s long time friend, campaign chair and Bill Clinton’s former Chief of Staff.
The elite media has give more coverage to what Donald Trump said in a locker-room conversation in 48 hours than they have given these women in 17 years.
Two weeks before an election, your a reporter, and you want to make yourself famous…hmm what to do? You claim that Donald Trump groped you and to enhance your credibility you start naming witnesses who saw it all…..
…..except one small problem. You might want to make sure that the witnesses will confirm your story instead of calling you out as a fraud.
Donald Trump’s former Mar-a-Lago Butler backed up the Republican nominee for president in denying the billionaire groped a reporter from People magazine.
“No, that never happened. Come on, that’s just bull crap,” said Anthony “Tony” Senecal.
People magazine writer Natasha Stoynoff wrote an essay this week about how she was groped by Trump at Mar-a-Lago during an interview in the early 2000s.
Trump, at his rally in West Palm Beach on Thursday, said he was always in a public place with Stoynoff and denied he ever acted inappropriately.
So, I am asking for a gut check on this one. You are Donald Trump and you own the Miss Universe Pageant. Is this the women you want to chase around the furniture at Mar-a-Lago?
UPDATE = Second Witness Calls Out Stoynoff as a Liar
The second witness Stoynoff claimed to verify parts of her story is none other than Melania Trump herself. Newsmax:
Stoynoff claims that after the incident happened, she ran into Melania Trump on Fifth Avenue.
According to Stoynoff, Melania Trump asked her, “Natasha, why don’t we see you anymore?” She then gave her a hug.
“I was quiet and smiled, telling her I missed her, and I squeezed little Barron’s foot.”
Harder wrote, “The true facts are there: Mrs. Trump did not encounter Ms. Stoynoff on the street, nor have any conversation with her. The two are not friends or even friendly. At the time in question, Mrs. Trump would not have even recognized Ms. Stoynoff if they had encountered one another on the street.”
The letter threatens legal action if a retraction isn’t issued.
UPDATE I – Emails show that she got the debate questions in advance from debate moderator Roland Martin.
CNN tosses journalistic ethics out the window to help Democrats as a matter of routine. And while they are critical of her with the truth from time to time, what they repeat over and over is agenda driven to put it mildly.
This is one of the more severe cases of journalistic corruption. In this case, the day before Hillary was to have a town-hall meeting on CNN, the email reveals that CNN gave an advance copy to current DNC Chairman Donna Brazile, who was working for CNN at the time. Brazile sent it directly to Hillary Campaign Chair John Podesta and Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri.
It is no secret that most of Hillary’s interviews and town hall events at colleges are scripted with members of the crowd planted with questions in advance.
Here is the email and a video from the town-hall event:
Here is the email:
But they don’t and never wanted any special favors right?
UPDATE – And after the million Hillary Clinton used her power as Secretary of State to approve arms deals to Qatar in spite of their known abuses. IBT:
The State Department formally approved these arms sales even as many of the deals enhanced the military power of countries ruled by authoritarian regimes whose human rights abuses had been criticized by the department. Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar all donated to the Clinton Foundation and also gained State Department clearance to buy caches of American-made weapons even as the department singled them out for a range of alleged ills, from corruption to restrictions on civil liberties to violent crackdowns against political opponents.
Read the email for yourself HERE.
New emails released by WikiLeaks in connection with its dump of John Podesta’s email server indicate that Qatar, an Islamist state in the Persian gulf, gave former President Bill Clinton a check for $1 million for his birthday.
The email indicates foundation officials also met with representatives from Brazil, Peru, Malawi and Rwanda to discuss donations and philanthropic strategies for the Foundation.
“[Qatar] Would like to see WJC ‘for five minutes’ in NYC, to present $1 million check that Qatar promised for WJC’s birthday in 2011,” Ami Desai, director of foreign policy for the Clinton Foundation, wrote in 2012.
The email was sent to a number of Clinton aides, including Doug Band.
In another email two years later, Hillary Clinton noted that Qatar aides and abets the Islamic State and Sunni terrorist groups.
“While this military/para-military operation is moving forward, we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region,” Clinton wrote.
James O’Keefe nails these people and it is not an isolated incident.
