Despots “Donate” to Clinton Foundation, Receive Weapons from Hillary: Leaked Docs

Newly leaked documents provide further details on what Harper’s magazine calls the Clinton family’s “slush fund”, the Clinton Foundation.

As Secretary of State (the US government position chiefly responsible for coordinating US international arms trafficking), Hillary Clinton accepted millions of dollars in “donations” from the dictator of Bahrain, Hamad bin Isa al Khalifa, then increased US weapons sales to him by 137% during his brutal, Saudi-backed crackdown on pro-democracy protestors.

The crackdown, as reported by Amnesty International, has included murder and child-torture.  In 2009, a Clinton State Department official stated that al Khalifa’s weapons coordinator was a “good friend of ours”.

Within Hillary Clinton’s increase in arms trafficking to the dictator of Bahrain was a 10,000% increase in transfers of “toxicological agents”.

IB Times also points out that beyond Bahrain, US arms exports in general “substantially increased to governments that donated to the Clinton Foundation”.*

The revelations have forced the Clinton campaign to essentially promise that if elected President, Clinton would not be as corrupt as she was as Secretary of State: “Clinton’s campaign said the foundation would stop accepting foreign government donations if she is elected president”.

It will be up to the minority of people in the US who are still willing to vote for Clinton to decide whether giving her more power is likely to make her more or less corrupt.

*This included the biggest weapons deal in history, a US effort to traffic over $60 billion in arms to the dictator of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abdulaziz, including illegal explosive devices that he has since used against civilians in the US proxy war against Yemen, which includes direct US executions of “suspects” and US rescue and refuel missions for Saudi pilots.  The US, unlike several other countries including India, Russia, and China, has refused to rescue its own citizens in trapped in the Yemen war and starvation zone, citing “danger”.

    This never surprises me.

    Hearing news of this sort is not like learning something new, but like remembering something I learned long ago, as if in another life.

    To come into evidence that the powerful are truthful would be a shock, like being told that Peter Pan was a true story; but that could only happen in a dream, one in which I became psychotic, and so a nightmare.

    To be normal in this nation is to be insane, to be sane is to be abnormal.

    Blacking out for short periods of time, uncontrollable twitching and memory loss, and fatigue.

    Will this will be on the front page of the New York Times? Of course not — never.

    Really important news, so don’t expect it to appear on ABC, NBC, CBS, NYT, WP, HuffPo, Salon, Slate, etc.

    HRC plays both sides against each other.

    It’s worth remembering how she claimed that a reduction in arms to known despots would have the MIC suing for loss of imagined income via the provisions in their contracts to supply.

    Once Imperiled, U.S. Aid to Egypt Is Restored

    At the same time she has been working hard to ensure that the MIC’s turnover will increase, that would provide the MIC or their customers with a motive for making donations.

    One moment she will be pushing free trade agreements until a political opportunity presents itself and she will flip flop roll over like a well trained poodle and make claims that she is against free trade agreements.

    Clearly she has abused her position in high office, she is not alone for we all know that if she goes down the entire deck of cards will go down with her, which explains why she appears to be untouchable….for the moment that is.

    Course, in the end, her defense team will put forward the notion that she’s suffering from advanced dementia and is therefore mentally unfit to stand trial.

    HRC will be setting a new world record proclaiming: Sorry your honor I do not recall I suffer from memory loss, while bursting out in hysterical laughter.

    Don’t be fooled into thinking that the only road to reform is through the ballot box. Whether you vote or don’t vote doesn’t really matter. What matters is what else you’re doing to push back against government incompetence, abuse, corruption, graft, fraud and cronyism.
