Bill Clinton said, “We did this with a very simple strategy.”
Part I of a three part series “The Clinton’s Pathological Greed”.
No one could have researched and written it better than Peter Schweizer, author of “Clinton Cash”. Clinton Cash was my very first introduction into the crime spree Bill and Hillary Clinton committed as professional grifters and took the whole country by storm.
When I questioned why former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was using an unsecured email server, I was completely oblivious to the fact that there are people who work for the federal government and will risk everything to commit the most serious crimes like espionage, treason and the mishandling of classified and top secret documents. Not only against the Constitution and our federal laws but more importantly against the American taxpayers, who unknowingly, literally and figuratively support these very divisive and duplicitous hardened criminals.
Hillary and Bill Clinton are incorrigible. There is no amount of self-reflection or counseling that would change their pattern of criminal behavior. Probably since the first time they decided to establish the Clinton Foundation. They were still living in Arkansas. Their roots and when life wasn’t as complicated as it would evolve to be. When Bill Clinton ran for President there were the rumors of other women. There was one women who he had a long term affair lasting 12 years.
She was beautiful and vivacious but now Bill was running to become Commander-in-Chief; The President of the United States of America. As I watched on television, their lives seemed so perfect. They were educated and were lawyers but others had had a much different experience with them and knew better.
They looked like the happy couple and supported each other’s dreams. Eventually with Bill’s charisma and Hillary’s persistence and perseverance they were destined for the White House and we would all come to know them very personally starting on May 2, 2015 when Hillary’s unsecured email server was exposed.
Over the years, there were rumors about the private businesses they started to invest in. One of their closest associates had committed suicide because apparently he was depressed. Some said, he wasn’t depressed, he was in love with Hillary. Some said, he participated in something that wasn’t legal and because of who he was innately; he couldn’t live with the guilt that he had let Hillary and Bill Clinton corrupt his integrity.
Back then there wasn’t the internet and social media providing access to tremendous amounts of information for anyone to become invested as American citizens. Starting about three years ago, I was compelled to dig deeper and the end result was Hillary and Bill Clinton were selling their title and influence for money. Then they had a stellar reputation. When Bill’s Presidency ended, most people liked the former President and many of us felt that the affair Bill had with Monica was none of our business.
And the Clinton Foundation became their central focus. Bill and Hillary met rich elites, billionaires like Frank Giustra from Canada who partnered with the Clintons. Guistra established a Canadian trust for money laundering and depositing huge sums of money from their partnership. The money was made stealing the rich mineral deposits from various countries in Africa then depositing into the Clinton Foundation which was supposed to be a charity. It was reported that the Clinton Foundation only gave 10% of its funds to those charities and it was probably even less than that.
There was a thorn on my side that kept pestering me and my curiosity, “Just exactly what did Hillary Clinton do or promise in return for these millions to billions of dollars in donations from foreign dignitaries and wealthy people all over the world?”
The answer came when I watched a documentary video titled “Clinton Cash” on YouTube. This damaging video to the Clinton’s reputation started to bounce around on YouTube and on the internet when Clinton’s accomplices were trying to keep it from the general public. The beginning of censoring Deep State corruption..
So we begin…the information from the “Clinton Cash” was at the time the most incriminating facts that could support an independent counsel or special prosecutor to investigate and indict the Clintons but that was going to be the most challenging to this date September 16, 2018.
In 2008, President Obama appointed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. There was the issue of a potential conflict of interest considering how the Clinton Foundation had raised money from donations from heads of state, dignitaries, diplomats and presidents from other countries.
Bill Clinton said, “We are trying to do something that no one has ever done before.” placing the emphasis on the “Charity” work the Clinton Foundation was supposed to be used for. The humanitarian effort that would help all the poor people and children afflicted in countries like Nigeria, Haiti, Sudan, the Republic of Congo etc.
But eventually the Clinton Foundation dropped its self-imposed ban on collecting funds from foreign governments and entities and the Washington Post reported total contributions to the Clinton Foundation amounted to billions dollars. There was an incredible amount of schmoozing and entertaining and eventually crossing the boundaries of international laws. Ladies and gentlemen I present to you Peter Schwiezer’s “Clinton Clash”.
AFRICA has been a continent that has been a chamber of horrors for decades. It’s not the fault of the African people. A result of the kind of systems that has been perpetuated there. You have these oligarchs (rulers) which dominate these countries which have rich natural resources which can be very lucrative. These oligarchs strike deals with foreign corporations or foreign governments who in effect prop them up and put them in power and in exchange these oligarchs give these entities access to these rich mineral deposits. You would think that the Clintons would be opposed to these sorts of things. The problem is the Clinton’s words are different from their actions.
Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame has been praised by Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation but the fact of the matter is President Paul Kagame has a terrible human rights record. He’s been accused of aiding military operations in the neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo and that actually forced the recruitment of child soldiers. The U.N. has identified President Kagame to being involved with activities that entailed massive human rights violations; killings. Numerous individuals and even journalists have been silenced through violent campaigns of intimidation and even death. Paul Kagame is a friend of Bill Clinton. Clinton has given him awards for his conduct and leadership of that country and they regale him as a great military leader. This is the sort of legitimization that we don’t want these kinds of dictators and leaders. That’s the kind of legitimization the Clintons have engaged in and they’ve done it in a way that creates commercial opportunities for donors, friends and allies who want to do business in Africa.
Business in Africa means you are dealing with ruthless dictators who are going to give you access to mineral rights or oil drilling rights but you’re going to have to pay them off. The Clintons partner with foreign entities who want access to Africa, specifically mining companies or energy companies who need to get concessions for access to oil or natural gas or the rights to mine for gold. Those two make a powerful alliance because these companies will give money to the Clintons either in the form of speaking fees or in the form of donations to the Clinton Foundation. The Clintons will do their bidding before the halls of power in Africa and they will go to foreign governments and encourage them to do business with the individuals who are putting money in their pockets…
Well there it is what the Clintons have done so far. There is a lot more information in this video to understand the immense corruption involved with other countries and foreign donors who partnered up with the Clintons to continue to feed the Clinton Foundation…
A perfect example of this is Ambassador Joe Wilson who is a long time friend of the Clintons. He endorsed Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Presidential Election. And it was also thought he might become a senior official in Hillary Clinton State Department. But the fact of the matter is Wilson was up to something far more nefarious during Hillary Clintons tenure as Secretary of State.
In 2009, shortly after Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State when Wilson was the Vice-Chairman of a company called Jarch Capital they took out a 50 year lease on four hundred thousand hectares (unit of land equal to 100 acres) in South Sudan. South Sudan was in the middle of a civil war and this lease was actually signed with warlords who were involved in the civil war.
These individuals who were engaged in a massive human rights violations including the massacre of opponent tribes. Basically what Joe Wilson was engaged in, was something called investing in sovereignty changes. They were basically cutting deals, lucrative deals worth potentially hundreds of millions of dollars with these warlords and the expectation was simple, these warlords would take power, then they would give them access to these lands, where they could make huge amounts of money exploring for natural gas, exploring for oil, and mineral rights.
Ambassador Joe Wilson isn’t the only Clinton friend and foundation donor who was working in worn torn countries. Swedish mining investor Lukas Lundin had pledged 100 million dollars to the Clinton Foundation, he did that in 2007. His most lucrative mining operations are in the worn torn country of the Democratic Republic of Congo. This is a country that has the most horrific human rights situation on the face of this earth. By the time Lukas Lundin made his 100 million dollar pledge donation to the Clinton Foundation, his Congo operation was making “staggering profits” according to his own financial statements. His overall capitalization was 20 billion dollars, but for those profits to remain staggering, US policy under Hillary Clinton had to remain unchanged. That’s a problem Hillary Clinton as a Senator back in 2006 supported “The Congo Release Security and Democracy Promotion Act”. The goal was to bring reform to Congo, that’s not something Lukas Lundin would want. So in 2009 when Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State she reversed course 180 degrees and went from supporting reform in the Congo to supporting the status quo, which is exactly what Lukas Lundin would want. Who of course had committed 100 million dollars to the Clinton Foundation.
Nigeria is very rich in natural resources and produces a lot of oil but that money never goes to the people because the oligarchs (warlords) allows grifters like the Clintons, foreign donors, and rich company executives the physical access to these rich mineral deposits, oil, gas, and gold mines who oligarchs get their share of the money and put this money in usually Swiss bank accounts.
There is a federal law in the United States that states foreign governments who receive US assistance and are not transparent in how they spend that money they will not be able to get US Foreign Assistance anymore. But there is a way around that law called a waiver and the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton granted that waiver. Nigeria was receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in US Foreign Assistance those who were not transparent of course they’ve received exemptions from Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State.
Bill Clinton at this same time received $1.4 million dollars for two speeches in Nigeria by a businessman Nduka Obaibgena who happens to be close to the President of that Country. This was an enormous pay day for Bill Clinton.
One of the pinnacles of power in that country is a gentleman by the name Gilbert Chagoury who has committed one billion dollars to the Clinton Global Initiative. He is also friends with Marc Rich who is a billionaire who was on the FBI’s most wanted list, who was suddenly and surprisingly pardoned by Bill Clinton in 2001. Marc Rich also traded oil with Ayatollah Khomeini in Iran, at the same time the Ayatollah was holding 50 Americans as hostages. Marc Rich also had a long history of busting UN sanctions by trading oil with a part-time regime in South Africa and a whole host of other nefarious governments.
Gilbert Chagoury, the highest Clinton donor was business partners with Marc Rich. He’s also extremely close to the Pope. Together they sopped up oil assets in Nigeria and sold them on the oil market for the benefit of a corrupt individual who was leading Nigeria at the time, named General Sani Abacha. Abacha smuggled by some estimates four to eight billion dollars out of the country and put them in European bank accounts. Gilbert Chagoury was indicted and convicted in Europe. Gilbert Chagoury was charged with aiding and abetting a criminal enterprise and money laundering charges. The very same charges that would apply to the Clintons. The suffering people of Nigeria who see their leadership getting a pass from the United States. The elites in these countries were getting rich, the Clintons were getting rich, and the money never trickles down to the people of Nigeria who needed so badly. Sadly this theme of resources not trickling down to the most in need is a common theme when it comes to the Clintons.
“In the email, Douglas Band who worked at the Clinton Foundation notes that Gilbert Chagoury is a “key guy there [Lebanon] and to us,” and insists Clinton aide and Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin call Ambassador Jeffrey Feltman to connect him with Gilbert Chagoury.”
“Gilbert Chagoury is a close friend of former President Bill Clinton and has appeared on the Clinton Foundation donor list as a $1 million to $5 million contributor. He’s also pledged $1 billion to the Clinton Global Initiative. Chagoury was convicted in 2000 in Switzerland for money laundering. He cut a deal and agreed to repay $66 million to the Nigerian government.”
“In another email from April 2009, Douglas Band who works for the Clinton Foundation seems to pressure Clinton’s former aides Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin into hiring a foundation associate.”
“In the email, Douglas Band writes it’s “important to take care of [name redacted].”
“Huma Abedin responds, telling Douglas Band, “Personnel has been sending him options.”
