The moment news of the Panama Papers first came out, I immediately wondered if the name “Hillary Clinton” was involved.
It wasn’t. Just as the name “Vladimir Putin” wasn’t involved.
It turns out that neither name appears in the files, but rather that BOTH corrupt, fascist leaders have multiple henchmen who ARE in the papers.
You want to know what Hillary Clinton’s presidency would look like? Just look at Vladimir Putin (sans Putin’s nationalistic desire to advance the power of his country).
Putin has been slammed for the Panama Paper revelations even though his name appears nowhere in them: you see statements such as “…the president’s name does not appear in any of the records” in the media reports; yet strangely Hillary Clinton has NOT been so slammed even though the same evidence that indicts Putin also indicts her. Because FACT: Hillary Clinton has ties to the Russian bank named in the Panama Papers through several key associates. And the reason this hasn’t EXPLODED in our media is the same damn reason Putin’s Panama Papers thingy hasn’t exploded in the Russian media: because America under Obama and the mainstream media ideological allies of Obama and the Democrat Party is every bit as much a fascist propaganda state as Russia is:
Russian State Media Mostly Ignore Panama Papers
4/6/2016 by Vladimir Kozlov
Russia’s state-run media almost entirely ignored the recent report by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), more commonly known as the Panama Papers, despite the fact that the released documents mentioned close friends and associates of president Vladimir Putin.
Major free-to-air television networks, such as Channel One, Rossiya, Ren-TV and NTV, didn’t even mention the controversy in their news desks, while state-controlled wire services Rossiya Segodnya and TASS provided only brief discussion of the report.
Oppositionist legislator Dmitry Gudkov demanded explanations for the brief and incomplete coverage of the “Panama Papers” from the state media. Dmitry Kiselev, head of Rossiya Segodnya, responded by saying he had no intention of discussing the organization’s editorial policies with Gudkov.
Other Russian media gave the Panama Papers more coverage, but often focused on foreign personalities implicated in the controversy, including soccer player Lionel Messi and Michel Platini, former president of the European soccer governing body UEFA, rather than examining the Russian angle.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, who previously spoke about “an information attack” against Russia orchestrated by the West, said at a news briefing that Putin was the main target of the Panama Papers, even though he was not directly mentioned in the released documents.
Peskov’s statement, in which he accused the West of “Putinophobia,” was widely covered by the Russian media.
Meanwhile, the pro-Kremlin English-language television network Russia Today (RT) dismissed the Panama Papers as poor quality journalism.
“Why is the West so obsessed with focusing its narrow attention span on Putin at the exception of corrupt Western leaders who only get passing mention in these hack pieces?” read a comment published on the network’s web site.
Independent newspaper Vedomosti quoted Igor Yakovenko, head of the foundation Public Examination, as saying that Russians, who have been heavily exposed to Kremlin propaganda across the media, are likely to ignore the controversy.
It’s no damn different here. We can go back to 2009 when Pravda – PRAVDA – was hysterically laughing at the sheer ridiculousness of American media Obama propaganda. Obama can literally weaponize the IRS against his political opponents – a truly fascist, Orwellian act that Nixon only CONTEMPLATED but Obama DID – and the media yawns. It doesn’t matter that the IRS targeted not only right-leaning applicants, but also right-leaning groups that were already operating as 501(c)(4)s. At Washington, DC’s direction, dozens of groups operating as 501(c)(4)s were flagged for IRS surveillance, including monitoring of the groups’ activities, websites and any other publicly available information. Of these groups, 83 percent were right-leaning. And of the groups the IRS selected for audit, 100 percent were right-leaning. It doesn’t matter that there is direct evidence proving both a political attack and the destruction of evidence to cover-up that political attack. Hillary Clinton is SO guilty of the scandalous abandonment of US personnel in Benghazi after steadfastly refusing to answer their appeals for help before the attack and then denying it even WAS an attack in the aftermath that it is beyond ridiculous. Just as her secret personal server created to bypass and obstruct transparency laws and which was used to transmit the most secret information in the entire American system being stored not only in a non-secure location but literally in a Colorado BATHROOM CLOSET is an obvious FELONY that ought to put her in prison. This goes so far beyond an “email account” that it is insane; NO TOP GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL HAD EVER INSTALLED A PERSONAL SEVER AND USED THAT PERSONAL SERVER EXCLUSIVELY TO CONDUCT ALL GOVERNMENT BUSINESS AND THEN PURGED IT TO DESTROY EVIDENCE. Creating a secret, personal server and then using that server in a nonsecure location to transmit top secret classified material is an obvious crime. But it won’t because as the drug cartel leaders say, “I have protection.”
The only thing Hillary Clinton can hide behind is the “intent” due to the fact that she is utterly incompetent and simply could not understand the ramifications of what she was doing. But even there the actual evidence explodes on her: because she has been caught red-bloodly-handed ordering her staff “to take ‘secure’ information and ‘send nonsecure’.” This incriminating event happening after she IGNORED State Department security warnings not to use her Blackberry overseas (see did what the hell she wanted no matter the risks to national security) and after she was warned that her private server was vulnerable to attacks.
Hillary Clinton told so many damn lies leading up to what we now know it is UNREAL. Those lies began to come out when she first claimed that she set up her private server because she only wanted to use one device for convenience sake – but then was found using multiple devices so that wasn’t it. She purged her server claiming she had personal emails with her husband (see also here). Put ASIDE the fact that when SHE chose to combine her personal and public life her personal life thereby became public and all she needed to do was what every other official did and have two accounts. But that got blown up when husband Bill said he had only sent two emails in his entire LIFE – and NEITHER to his wife. The same link contains another Hillary lie, that her husband set this server up and she was therefore using a Secret-Service secured server on Secret-Service secured premises. Only it wasn’t. Because WHY THE HELL WAS THE DAMN THING FOUND IN SOMEBODY’S BATHROOM IN COLARADO???
Hillary’s lies are so vast and so many and so complex it boggles the mind: her initial claim was that she was using Bill Clinton’s Secret Service secured server at their New York residence. But that wasn’t really true: because “A staffer who was on the payroll of her political action committee set it up in her home, replacing a server that Clinton’s husband, former president Bill Clinton, had been using in the house.” Which is another way of saying the story was a lie; it NEVER WAS BILL CLINTON’S SERVER. It was set up FOR her by someone on her political action committees’ payroll. And then she moved the server which she installed to bypass the law offsite.
There was that moment when President Obama made a joke that really ought to expose how blatant Hillary Clinton’s entire scheme was from the beginning: “Hillary has a server in her house! I didn’t even know you could have one of those.” Because no public official had ever gone so far to deceive before.
This woman has been a rabid pathological liar her entire adult life. She lies about everything, little things and big things alike. Lies are always all around her; her soul swims in lies.
Today she claims she is the living embodiment of defending women; but when it mattered she was laughing over her trick in getting the rapist of a twelve-year-old girl completely off the hook. When it mattered she was at the head of a campaign to destroy the credibility of all the women who came forward detailing incredibly inappropriate behavior from her husband while maintaining instead that Bill’s disgusting behavior toward woman after woman was “a vast, right wing conspiracy.”
I could literally spend the rest of the article detailing nothing but one massive criminal coverup after another one. But I’m just screaming in a hurricane.
Because we have the same kind of media here that Russia has.
Even back in the Soviet days, intelligent Russians were amazed at the US media deception and how effective it was here to a gullible public that just ate it up thinking it was actual news the way goldfish in the ponds in front of the doors of family restaurant eat up children’s spit thinking it was actual food. “A Soviet correspondent once said of the American mainstream media, “I have the greatest admiration for your propaganda. Propaganda in the West is carried out by experts who have had the best training in the world — in the field of advertizing — and have mastered the techniques with exceptional proficiency … Yours are subtle and persuasive; ours are crude and obvious … I think that the fundamental difference between our worlds, with respect to propaganda, is quite simple. You tend to believe yours … and we tend to disbelieve ours.”
And we are therefore on the verge of electing the same sort of leader Russia has.
And the cases in point are now way, WAY beyond legion.
The Clinton System is as identical as the Putin System could possible by in the American economy. You have 200 donors to the Clinton Foundation who were at the same time lobbying the Clinton State Department. You’ve got more than a thousand foreign donors whose names were NOT disclosed by the Clinton Foundation. You’ve got them refilling their taxes after massive, widespread irregularities were discovered. A whopping SIX YEARS’ of tax returns.
Bernie Sanders is making the clearly accurate case that Hillary Clinton gave speech after speech to Wall Street power players who were paying upwards of a quarter of a million dollars per speech. And that if her damn speeches were that great that they were worth that kind of money, well, the world ought to hear her prices wisdom. But don’t worry; those speeches will NEVER come to the light of day because if they did the candidate these Wall Street players bought and paid for will never get to do their bidding. Hillary dishonestly says she’ll release the transcripts (I’d prefer the actual recordings anyway for obvious reasons) when her rivals release theirs; so her only opponent Bernie Sanders released all ZERO speeches he’s given to Wall Street. Because Wall Street doesn’t even WANT to hear what Bernie has to say to them, let alone pay him a quarter million dollars a pop to hear it.
You want to claim that Hillary Clinton actually CARES about poor people with her reptilian heart? Just consider the pure, unforgivable coldness she demonstrated toward the people of Haiti when her Foundation came in to save the day but in reality set up a pay-to-play system
Development banks are the butt of jokes among economists because while they claim to fight poverty they are mostly good at empire building. The same might be said of the Clintons in Haiti. A few months after Hillary Clinton became secretary of state in 2009, Bill Clinton was named the U.N. special envoy to Haiti. That gave the Clintons a lot of power over U.S. foreign-aid decisions in the small country.
They accumulated more influence after the 2010 earthquake, when Bill was named co-chair of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission. The State Department began directing parties interested in competing for Haiti contracts to the Clinton Foundation. Being on the right side of Bill matters if you want to benefit from U.S. foreign aid destined for Haiti.
The scandals are UNREAL. But to the extent they are even reported at all they are “reported” with an attempt to fabricate a yawn-response by the hopelessly deceived American public.
It is beyond amazing how fascist hypocrite Democrats truly are. Bernie Sanders is running on a government for the people rather than for the big donors. And there is literally no human being on earth today who is more FILTHY in crony-capitalist fascist self-benefitting trading of power-for-favors than Hillary Clinton. But they will eagerly vote for the very thing they will tell you with straight faces that they claim to most despise.
So I saw this and just found it interesting:
The Panama Papers Are Exactly Why Hillary Clinton Can’t Be President
By Robert Tracinski
April 8, 2016
The revelations from the Panama Papers—leaked documents from a secretive Panamanian law firm that helps political elites hide their money—have been hitting home across the world, exposing the widespread corruption of world leaders and their hangers-on.
It ought to hit here, too, because it reminds us of everything that should give us the heebie-jeebies about Hillary Clinton.
The Panama Papers have simply confirmed everything we already pretty much knew. This is just the way things work in much of the world. Clawing your way into high political office means that you have a lot special of favors to give out, contracts to distribute, land and timber and shipping deals to approve, and so on. So you dole them out to friends, relatives, and backers—and they naturally show their gratitude by kicking some of it back to you. And if you don’t officially get rich—well, mi casa es su casa, what’s a little sharing between friends? This has long been Vladimir Putin’s method. “In 2010, US diplomatic cables suggested Putin held his wealth via proxies. The president formally owned nothing, they added, but was able to draw on the wealth of his friends, who now control practically all of Russia’s oil and gas production and industrial resources.” The Panama Papers shed light on the fortune of Putin’s old friend Sergei Roldugin, who has somehow amassed billions as an obscure classical musician. Putin knows how easy it is for corrupt officials to live like kings without officially owning anything, because that’s the way things worked in the good old days of the Soviet Union.
In most of the world, this is known and more or less accepted as the way things work. But not traditionally in the US and in the developed countries of the West, where our governments have been structured, either from the beginning or over many years of civil service reforms, to prevent corruption and conflicts of interest. So when they are exposed, it’s a major scandal. That’s why they’re pretty much ignoring the Panama Papers in Moscow, but in Iceland, crowds swarmed Raykjavik and forced the resignation of the prime minister.
And that confronts us with a question: do we want Panama here?
Because a couple of other names pop up in the Panama Papers, including those of a few well-known associates of Hillary Clinton: longtime Democratic Party fixers John and Tony Podesta and Clinton sycophant Sydney Blumenthal. And why not? Hillary Clinton has been up to her neck in crony deals from the very beginning. All the way back in 1978, for example, she indulged a sudden mania for trading cattle futures, from which she made just shy of $100,000 in less than a year—a lot more money back then than it is now, and a whole lot for a young couple like the Clintons. She has shown no interest in commodities trading since, which is surprising considering how successful she was at it. But maybe not so surprising when you consider that her trades back then were made under the guidance of an attorney who worked for a large company that just happened to be regulated by her husband. Gee, that almost looks like a bribe.
That’s the kind of thing that’s all over the Panama Papers, and it’s what Hillary Clinton has been doing forever. It’s how the Clintons suddenly made $100 million in the first few years after leaving the White House, with nothing to offer the business world but their political connections. It’s why the Clinton Foundation got massive donations from Russian businessmen with deals that required State Department approval.
The problem is wider than Hillary Clinton, of course. Donald Trump has openly bragged about his role in this system from the other end, as the businessman who buys the influence of politicians. Even Bernie Sanders, who has been making hay from the Panama Papers, advocates a much bigger role for government, particularly in regulating international trade—which is precisely the kind of playground for corruption revealed by the Panama Papers. Only Ted Cruz, despite playing footsie with protectionism during the South Carolina primary, advocates a smaller role for government in picking winners and losers in the economy.
The fact is that the reason official corruption is rampant across much of the world is not just that they have insufficient civil service reforms. It’s because their governments have vast, arbitrary powers. Hillary Clinton is one of the most visible reminders of this kind of wheeling and dealing among the global elites—and she presents us with the prospect of bringing the whole sordid system back from Panama and straight into the Oval Office.
As bad as Bernie Sanders would be – Barack Obama didn’t just enrage the American people beyond capacity that he gave us Donald Trump; he broke any and all confidence in the entire system that he gave us OPENLY SOCIALIST Bernie Sanders as well – if the GOP doesn’t win, I hope Bernie does. Because Hillary Clinton is just nakedly evil in absolutely everything she thinks and does.
I see Hillary Clinton’s campaign slogan –
– And viscerally see that a vote for the Democrat Party isn’t a vote for “Hil,” it’s a vote for HELL.
Hillary Clinton is the very same sort of paranoid, power-hungry, fascist thug that Vladimir Putin is. She has manipulated her entire life lusting for the power that Putin has. And she’s on the verge of that power because to be a Democrat today is to be the same sort of pathologically dishonest hypocrite that their mistress has revealed herself to be.
Obama’s reverend for 23 years summed it up beautifully: “God DAMN America!” You just keep voting for it, America. Because God Almighty will see to it that you get everything you voted for and then some.
