Dear Alt-Left Mainstream Media, Washington Establishment and Deep State Operatives… The American People can see behind the curtain… And you will pay a heavy price for your dishonesty!

An Open Letter To The Alt-Left Media, Washington Establishment And Deep State

The single most intolerable thing to the American Voting Public, is to treat them with contempt. The vast majority of this country are just people trying to raise a family, make ends meet, pay their bills, and make a better life for their children than they had for themselves. They couldn’t give a crap about your artificially stirred up race wars, and your fantasy oppression, and your attempts to find injustice behind every corner.

But the one thing they do care about, from the deepest parts of their soul, is your elitist attempts to manipulate them. To pull their strings… To make them dance… To pit one segment of society against the other… For your own benefit. In spite of your belief to the contrary, the American Voting Public is not stupid. They can see what you are doing. They can look at the Alt-Left Mainstream News Reports, and they can compare them to actual events. They know that you’re lying to them.

You have managed to convince yourselves that your manipulation is paying dividends. You’ve managed to create a nice little socialist army of masked abusers to beat people up in your name… And you’ve created a Media Echo Chamber to call them heroes. And you trot out the virtue signaling politicians to bask in the glory of your artificial righteousness. You create demons and monsters where none really exist. Because you’ve labeled them Nazis and Skinheads and KKK. And you all tell yourselves that it’s working….

But they can see… They can see that it is false. They know their own hearts. They know that they are good men and women… and that they love their neighbors… and that they’re just trying to make a life for their family… and that they’ve never spent a minute hating anyone. They can see that the fans of hatred and violence and discord are coming not from them, but from you.

Your day of reckoning is coming soon. Americans will go quietly go to the polls in 2018, and in 2020, and they will join to help you understand that they don’t want to be manipulated. Your repudiation will be total. And it will be glorious. You’re not half as clever as you think you are.

FLASHBACK: Before the “Trump-Russia” conspiracy, the DNC emails were widely reported as a LEAK and NOT a hack!!!

Remember When The DNC Emails Were Widely Reported As A LEAK
Bernie Sanders says leaked emails show he was right about the DNC all along

This shift is definitely worth noting and should be brought to the attention to all on the left regularly. Why would you want to receive your news from an organization that peddled this bull crap for over a year. Now when it suddenly fell off the face of the Earth you’re okay with it? The narrative has unfortunately stuck for some despite the lack pf Mainstream Media coverage of it anymore, and it needs to be pointed out that some news outlets are questioning if there was a hack at all now.

From CNN July 25, 2016:

What was in the DNC email leak?
(CNN) — Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s stewardship of the Democratic National Committee has been under fire through most of the presidential primary process.

Now, on the eve of the party’s convention, Wasserman Schultz is facing pressure to resign, and will have no major role on the convention stage, after Wikileaks released nearly 20,000 DNC emails that bolster Sanders’ supporters’ claims that the party favored Clinton.

One email appears to show DNC staffers asking how they can reference Bernie Sanders’ faith to weaken him in the eyes of Southern voters. Another seems to depict an attorney advising the committee on how to defend Hillary Clinton against an accusation by the Sanders campaign of not living up to a joint fundraising agreement.

Here’s what you need to know about the DNC email leak so far:

Emails leaked from seven DNC officials

The leaks, from January 2015 to May 2016, feature Democratic staffers debating everything from how to deal with challenging media requests to coordinating the committee’s message with other powerful interests in Washington.

The emails were leaked from the accounts of seven DNC officials, Wikileaks said. CNN has not independently established the emails’ authenticity.

The emails could boost Sanders supporters’ charge that the DNC was biased toward Clinton — a position Sanders himself underscored when he endorsed Wasserman Schultz’s primary opponent in her Florida congressional race.

But Baltimore mayor and DNC Secretary Stephanie Rawlings-Blake denied any suggestion that Clinton’s camp was treated more favorably by the committee.

“My xpectation is beyond your opinion about a candidate, that you act evenly. All of the officers took a pledge of neutrality and I honored that, and I take that very seriously,” Rawlings-Blake told CNN’s Poppy Harlow. She added: “I know that the chair will hold those employees accountable if they’re found to have acted outside of that neutrality and even-handedness.”

Asked about the exchanges, Rawlings-Blake said: “Expressing an opinion about a candidate doesn’t mean that you’re in collusion, doesn’t mean that you are actively working against them. And I don’t think that that’s what it shows.”

Questioning Sanders’ faith

One email features DNC staffers appearing to ponder ways to undercut Sanders, an insurgent Democrat who had a bitter relationship with party leadership.

On May 5, a DNC employee asked colleagues to “get someone to ask his belief” in God and suggested that it could make a difference in Kentucky and West Virginia. Sanders’ name is not mentioned in the note.

“This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist,” DNC chief financial officer Brad Marshall wrote.

Marshall did not respond to a request for comment.

Clinton prods DNC for intervention

In another email, an attorney for the Clinton campaign appears to advise the DNC on how to respond to a dispute between the two campaigns over how much money Clinton’s operation had raised for state parties. Sanders’ campaign charged that Clinton’s team was not handing over its fair share of its fundraising, which Sanders’ campaign manager Jeff Weaver said was “laundering” and “looting.”

“My suggestion is that the DNC put out a statement saying that the accusations the Sanders campaign are not true. The fact that CNN notes that you aren’t getting between the two campaigns is the problem,” Marc E. Elias wrote. “Here, Sanders is attacking the DNC and its current practice, its past practice with the POTUS and with Sec Kerry. Just as the RNC pushes back directly on Trump over ‘rigged system,’ the DNC should push back DIRECTLY at Sanders and say that what he is saying is false and harmful (to) the Democratic party.”

Elias and the Clinton campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment Saturday.

Favoring bigger donors

Another exchange involves a discussion on whether to move Maryland ophthalmologist Sreedhar Potarazu from sitting beside President Barack Obama at a DNC event after National Finance Director Jordan Kaplan said he gave less money than Philip Munger, another donor.

“It would be nice to take care of him from the DNC side,” Kaplan wrote, referring to Munger.

Potarazu told CNN Saturday that he wants answers from top DNC officials on how they are responding to these revelations, which have surfaced days before the Democratic convention.

“I was obviously shocked to see my name in the middle of all of this because I’m just an innocent bystander,” he said.

“I’m curious to see what’s happening at the highest levels of the DNC right now,” he added. “I don’t know, but I’m sure it’s a fire drill. The timing is not good.”

Wasserman Schultz attacks Weaver

Wasserman Shultz also called Weaver a “damn liar” in May after he criticized the Nevada Democratic Party following protests among Sanders supporters who said Clinton’s backers had subverted party rules. They shouted down pro-Clinton speakers and sent threatening messages to state party Chairwoman Roberta Lange after posting her phone number and address on social media.

“The state party there has a lot of problems. They’ve run things very poorly. It has been done very undemocratically,” Weaver said on CNN in May. “And there seems to be an unwillingness on the part of the Nevada Democratic Party to bring in all of the new people that Bernie Sanders has brought into the process.”

The DNC chair responded in an email: “Damn liar. Particularly scummy that he barely acknowledges the violent and threatening behavior that occurred.”

And in an email quoting Weaver as saying, “I think we should go to the convention,” Wasserman Shultz wrote: “He is an ASS.”

Former Clinton Employee Says Charlottesville Planned By The DNC And More Coming

From Z3news:

Larry Nichols was hired by Bill Clinton in 1988, while Clinton was still Governor of Arkansas. Clinton later fired Nichols, and Nichols has devoted himself to exposing Clinton’s many scandals ever since. (Source: Wikipedia) With the help of the mainstream news media, Clinton and his deep state cronies have retaliated by attacking Nichols, branding him as a nutty conspiracy theorist.

Nichols explains the reason why the Democrats are targeting the next six months is to allow the firestorm to blow over and settle down prior to the 2018 elections.

He also revealed their plans to take their OFA town hall tactics to the next level. We have already seen examples of how they have sent their trained operatives into town hall meetings throughout the nation, causing disruptions and chaos, but Nichols claims their next move is to cause riots while posing as conservatives. Their hope is by causing enough trouble they can trigger a Constitutional crisis while blaming it all on the conservatives.

Nichols claims a statute exists by which a FEMA provisional government can step in and take over our government under certain extreme conditions, including an invasion by a foreign military or simultaneous riots in five or more cities. In that event, Nichols claims a temporary FEMA government would replace our Constitutional republic, which would allow the new “leader” to function as a dictator, making decisions without Congressional approval.

If such a statute exists, it would be unconstitutional and should be discarded because our Constitution includes specific requirements for approving any amendments. A Constitutional Convention must be called by two-thirds of the legislatures of the states. Then those amendments must be approved by three-fourths of the states. No proposal like that has ever even been presented in any Constitutional Convention, so anyone claiming a FEMA government has the right to replace our Constitutional republic is either confused or lying or both.

Congress does not have the authority to change the Constitution to enact a new FEMA government under any circumstances. Any attempts to replace our republic with a FEMA government should therefore be resisted be every American citizen. However, such lawlessness should not surprise anyone because it has been rampant in Washington DC in recent years, especially since Obama took office in January 2009, openly choosing not to enforce laws he did not like.

Nichols claims the new FEMA government will be presented to the American people as a temporary solution, but that will be a lie. Once it is enacted, their plan is to make it a permanent replacement of our Constitutional government.

He claims that Vice-President Mike Pence would not become President after Trump is impeached because that process only applied under our Constitutional government. Under the new FEMA government, they would be able to put into office whomever they choose, and they have already chosen President Obama.

Was “Unite The Right” A Staged Media Event?

Was “Unite the Right” a Soros-funded Psychological Operation? Was the goal to employ the “Pied Piper” strategy to damage the Republican brand by insinuating that Antifa goons disguised as Nazis represent the views of the entire Right Wing in America? (Is this what Creamer and Democracy Partners have been up to lately?)

Was "Unite The Right" A Staged Media Event?

This whole event feels staged.

Lets look at a few things:

  • The protesters show up with all the same TIKI torches.
  • All the same, brand new flags fresh out the wrapper. Still with the packaging folds.
  • The Mainstream Media is there and many Antifa protesters are there yet Trump supporters haven’t heard of this rally.
  • The media showed the protesters as Trump supporters and sure enough the protesters fit their view of Trump supporters and are completely different than supporters you see at actual Trump rallies.
  • Who paid for this?
  • Who got the permits for this?
  • How did all the people protesting arrive at the rally?

Just seems to fake and fits the media narrative far to well.

The media and the left are continually losing all the time at everything, then all of the sudden everything fits their narrative one day. They have so much to report on now. How convenient.

This smells of Soros, Hillary and Obama!

This rally was allegedly held over in large part to a removal of a Robert E. Lee statue in town. So why are people with Nazi swastika flags even in attendance? Unless you know, the flags have that “fresh out of the package just unfolded” look to them that were handed out to the paid protesters.

Paid Protesters

 

Confederate, Nazi flags, White Hoods. Heil Hitler salutes by men dressed basically the same. What did you not see? American flags. Have you ever seen a Trump rally without an American flag?



Let’s trace this event back to its origins.

Start with the Wikipedia page:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_Unite_the_Right_Rally

It cites this article about expectations for the rally on 2017-07-21:
http://www.nbc29.com/story/35942579/sources-4000-people-may-fill-emancipation-park-during-august-rally

That article has a “related article link” back to 2017-06-05:
http://www.nbc29.com/story/35594532/controversial-activists-file-permits-to-hold-rallies-in-charlottesville

Read those articles, and you can see the origins. The original application was submitted by Jason Kessler, on behalf of “Unity and Security for America”.

The event was subsequently announced on Facebook by the “Traditionalist Workers Party”.

Hopefully, that’s enough breadcrumbs to get people started on finding the true origins of this “Unite the Right” rally.

At the same time the Guccifer “Hack” was taking place, Joe Biden was hosting a meeting with 18 Ukrainians. Very unusual for him. Warren Flood was a consultant for Biden. Warren Flood was the name the Microsoft account was registered to on the Guccifer documents.

White House Meetings On Ukraine Coincide With Time Of Russian Fingerprint Fabrications

More Ukrainian connections. Also be sure to watch the video below where Imprisoned Romanian hacker ‘Guccifer’ tells Fox News that ‘Guccifer 2.0’ could be the U.S. State Department.

From Adam Carter [April 29th, 2017]:

In my research to investigate the real identity of Guccifer 2.0, I discovered that the name Warren Flood applied to more documents than had originally been reported and highlighted the unusual nature of those documents both in terms of the metadata and the RSIDs (and Russian Stylesheet that existed in multiple documents even before the content in each document did) and explained that this demonstrates an effort to try to discredit Wikileaks by blaming leaks on Russian hackers.

White House Meetings on Ukraine Coincide With Time of Russian Fingerprint Fabrications

Considering where copies of Microsoft Word installed by Flood (highlighted in the photo above with Biden) might exist besides on computers he owns, I considered his past role as Sen. Joe Biden’s Technology Director (as noted on his Linked-In profileand thought one place to look for interesting activity would be computers residing in Biden’s office or generally at the White House.

So, I wondered who may have visited Biden that day around that time. I thought I’d check out visits to the White House hosted by Biden, wondering whether there’d be any interesting activity anywhere near 1:38pm on June 15th 2016.

It turns out that Biden was hosting visits from a number of Ukrainians around that time, on that date. To see how frequent this sort of activity occurred I checked the whole of June. – It seems such visits were not a regular occurance.

(Times below are appointment times, some individuals turned up before their 2pm appointment)

White House Meetings on Ukraine Coincide With Time of Russian Fingerprint Fabrications

An attempt to quickly identify visitors in June showed the following had a Ukraine connection:

White House Meetings on Ukraine Coincide With Time of Russian Fingerprint Fabrications

While this doesn’t prove anything, it certainly is a curious coincidence to stumble upon while looking for activity of people that might have had a motive (or helped with an effort) to frame Russia.

US visitors that day also have ties back to events surrounding the Ukrainian 2014 revolution and/or reporting on it (with the exception of Kuklish who is an English-Ukrainian translator) and most had worked or were working in the State Department.

It’s worth nothing that Nuland and Pyatt were both embroiled in a diplomatic crisis in 2014 when a conversation they had was posted to YouTube showing that the US was interfering in Ukraine’s politics (The State Department and the White House blamed Russia’s vice-president Dmitryi Rogozin for the leak.)

I’m not going to get into speculation. I’ve let journalists who have written extensively on the Ukraine coup know about this and will leave this up to them to pursue, if they wish to.


UPDATE [May 2nd]: A closer look at the actual booking/arrival times, room numbers, other visits, etc. shows that, on the 15th, there were effectively 2 meetings. One of which had at least 18 individuals attending (Stoliarchuk is listed at 1:30pm and 2:00pm) and another with at least 4 attending.

‘Guccifer’ to Fox News: ‘Guccifer 2.0’ is not Russia, it’s the US Government

Imprisoned Romanian hacker ‘Guccifer’ talks exclusively to Fox News about the DNC email hack, Hillary Clinton’s private email server and claims ‘Guccifer 2.0’ could be the U.S. State Department.

This should be getting more attention. With all the improper coordination being revealed between the DOJ and the Clinton campaign in recent email dumps, the investigation of her may have been stopped for political reasons.

FBI's Files On Hillary Clinton Show She Was Issued A Subpoena For A Federal Grand Jury

In the FBI’s files on Hillary Clinton, it appears she was issued a subpoena for a Federal Grand Jury. The case was stopped from moving forward.

This was early in 2016 BEFORE the election. Clinton was under investigation for serious crimes yet still allowed to run for President because Obama may have prevented the investigation from going forward.

Can you say collusion and conspiracy?

The Major Scandals During Robert Mueller’s FBI Years

Mueller is Dirty and the creation of a special counsel is a ruse by the also Dirty and dishonest James Comey.

There is so much collusion — real collusion in the Justice Department, including collusion between Comey and Mueller.

From DISPATCHES FROM THE 15TH DISTRICT:

A former colleague recently characterized Robert Mueller as “ramrod straight” and “utterly incorruptible.” Similar language was breathlessly repeated in mainstream media biographies on Mueller in PoliticoBBC, and Time magazine. Mueller’s Vietnam-era service in the United States Marine Corps and 2004 tag-team with then-Deputy Attorney General James Comey to save American democracy from warrantless spyingare mainstays of these biographies, which always send a clear message that his integrity is beyond reproach.

It’s always suspicious when anyone’s credibility is oversold like this, but that goes double when the same person was FBI director for 12 years—spanning across both the Bush and Obama administrations from 2001 to 2013—yet most people can’t remember anything about him. We should remember actions he took to impartially uphold the law. Sadly, that is not the case.

What stands out most during then-FBI Director Mueller’s term in office is the two-tiered system of justice, when obvious crimes and scandals involving government officials and private-sector elites were ignored or even covered up by the FBI. What Mueller failed to do to protect our country says more than anything he did.

Recent leaks suggest that Special Counsel Mueller is examining one of the President’s 2008 Palm Beach real estate deals, as well as the 2013 Miss Universe competitionheld in Moscow. During the very same time period as those events, FBI Director Mueller repeatedly failed to act in cases involving government corruption and dangerous crimes. His level of aggressiveness in investigating our President is the exact inverse of how he acted when he was tasked with protecting America.

Major Scandals During Mueller’s FBI Years:

At the nation’s top cop, then-FBI Director Mueller had massive resources to investigate crimes, as well as the ability to arrest suspects and recommend prosecution of the offenders. The following is an abbreviated list of major scandals and likely crimes that Mueller did not meaningfully investigate as FBI Director—no arrests, no consequences:

Falsification of Iraq War intelligence (2003): information providing the sole justification for a war that caused the death and dismemberment of thousands of American soldiers was later found to be fabricated, false, or overstated at the time it was presented to the public. Mueller not only failed to investigate and arrest any of the perpetrators of this deception—he actively participated in the plot:

[arve url=”https://videopress.com/embed/8sssD7of” /]

Vanishing Currency (2003): the US government sent $12 billion in $100 bills to the Iraq War combat theater, which mostly went unaccounted for after it entered the country

NSA Warrantless Surveillance (2001-2013): illegal collection of domestic phone records and internet communications that were sent or received by US citizens, in violation of Fourth Amendment protections against warrantless search and seizure, followed by potential perjury committed by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who denied the practices under oath; the 2013 Snowden revelations proved that the 2004 story about Comey and Mueller stopping illegal surveillance practices was nearly meaningless in practice

Emailgate (2007): discovery that several top Bush administration officials violated the Presidential Records Act by using an RNC server for email communications while conducting official business, followed by the deletion of millions of the same emails

Walter Reed Neglect Scandal (2007): troops recovering from severe war-related injuries were subjected to squalid living conditions and grotesquely substandard care due to a privatization agreement that resulted in drastic staffing cuts, after which patients were told to “keep quiet” and whistleblowers suffered retaliation from higher-ups

IRS Targeting (2010-2013): the IRS intentionally selected and then delayed or denied tax-exempt 501(c)(3) applications from conservative groups to prevent them from participating in the 2012 election, followed by IRS agent Lois Lerner invoking her Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination

Fast and Furious (2010): this ATF program, which seems to have served no rational purpose, allowed over 2,000 guns to be purchased illegally inside the United States and then “walked” into Mexico for use by criminals, one of which was later used in the 2010 murder of Border Agent Brian Terry by the member of a Mexican cartel

Associated Press Spying (2012): the Department of Justice illegally seized the communications of AP reporters made during April and May 2012, allowing the DOJ to unmask journalists’ confidential sources

Clinton Foundation Pay-for-Play (2009-2013): during the period in which Hillary Clinton held the office of Secretary of State, the Clinton Foundation and Bill Clinton received millions of dollars in paid speaking fees and a million dollar “gift” from countries involved in matters with the State Department, many of which had ties to terrorism and human rights abuses; some of these funds were apparently diverted from charitable causes to personal expenses, such as Chelsea Clinton’s 2010 wedding

Russian Uranium Deal (2009-2013): Hillary Clinton’s State Department approved a deal allowing a Russian company to control 20% of the uranium mining production capacity inside the United States, which was followed by millions of dollars in donations to the Clinton Foundation from people associated with the transaction

Clinton Private Email Server (2009-2013): during her entire tenure as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton dodged Freedom of Information Act requirements by using a private email server to conduct official government business, as well as sent and received classified information that was Top Secret over an unsecured system—an “extremely reckless” (and obviously illegal) act

HSBC Bank Money Laundering Scandal:

Although it received little coverage in the mainstream media, the HSBC money laundering case reveals the complete and total corruption of federal law enforcement toward the end of Mueller’s term as FBI Director. No case demonstrates how the swamp works better than this one.

For nearly the entire duration of Mueller’s term, UK-based HSBC, an international bank with divisions and depositors worldwide, was doing billions of dollars in business with drug cartels, rouge nations, and even banks associated with terrorism, taking massive deposits made in foreign nations and funneling them into its US banks. The overall amounts were staggering, totaling hundreds of billions of dollars, which likely gave HSBC a comparative advantage over its rivals and greater market share, while providing international criminals with the ability to “launder” money into the US banking system with little-to-no oversight. In 2012, a whistleblower, who collected information and recorded conversations with HSBC employees, provided strong proof to the public that the bank was operating as a “criminal enterprise.”

Mexican Drug Cartels: From 2002 to at least 2009 (and possibly much longer), HSBC bank laundered billions of US dollars for Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s murderous Sinaloa Cartel and similar groups. In 2009, Forbes placed El Chapo at #41 on its “World’s Most Powerful People” list. The same year, many experts agreed that Mexico’s drug war had rendered it a “failed state.” By 2012, the Sinaloa cartel alone was estimated to have annual revenues of $3 billion, which were comparable to Facebook or Netflix. By April 2013, toward the end of Mueller’s term, the Sinaloa and other Mexican cartels had become the number one importer and distributor of narcotics inside the United States (with many of the cartel’s top agents living inside the United States), El Chapo had become “public enemy no. 1,” and 70,000 murders and nearly 27,000 disappearances were attributable to the drug war inside Mexico.

Ignoring the obvious, HSBC inexplicably designated Mexico a “low risk” country for money laundering, allowing shady depositors and known drug kingpins to depositbillions of US dollars—in cash—into bank accounts in HSBC Mexico, followed by the same money becoming accessible at HSBC in the US. With legitimate-looking banking, the Mexican drug cartels were given huge expansion potential inside the US that would otherwise have been easily detected if the cartels tried to purchase properties, vehicles, and shell businesses here using cash.

Much of the cash crossing the US-Mexico border (estimated at $25 billion per year in 2010) found a ready home in HSBC branches south of the Rio Grande. HSBC Mexico made billions of dollars in suspicious transactions, such as customers depositing hundreds of thousands of US dollars into a single bank account in a single day, during which the cash was put through teller windows in boxes that were designed to fit through the window openings. Because there was virtually no investigation into these transactions or even the identities of depositors, who included high-profile drug dealers, accounts were rarely closed due to the suspicious activity. After all, Mexico was a “low risk” country for money laundering at the time.

Terrorists and Rogue Nations: The bank’s practices also allowed terrorist groups and rogue nations to have access to our financial markets in a similar manner, facilitating financing of their activities inside this country, as well as providing greater international investment possibilities for sanctioned regimes—including $19 billion deposited from Iran into HSBC’s foreign affiliate banks. There were also lax rules for setting up relationships with affiliate banks in other countries, which included a Saudi Arabian bank with ties to funding terrorism.

Policies Prevented Catching Crooks: Even in the rare instance where money laundering controls were in place, inadequate follow-up measures undermined any intervention. The US division of HSBC allowed thousands of suspicious accounts to remain open after they were flagged for closure. “Know your customer” practices were virtually nonexistent, which allowed bad actors to get around things like Iranian sanctions and Patriot Act protections, which in turn was aggravated by bank employees doing things like deleting information about the country of origin on deposits from places like Iran. Large-scale warnings, such as the migration of billions of US dollars in cash deposits into HSBC Mexico, went unnoticed because the bank apparently had no system in place to monitor such activity. To say all of this was “extremely reckless” would be an understatement—it’s inconceivable that the bank’s employees and executives didn’t know what was happening at the time.

“Ramrod” Mueller to the Rescue: What did Mueller do to aggressively investigate and shut down this massive “foreign influence” involving our country’s drug epidemic and threat of terrorism? Basically nothing. No bank executives or employees were arrested or jailed. People have spent more time in jail for smoking a joint than any HSBC executive or employee did for facilitating drug cartel business and terrorist financing.

On October 17, 2010, the Treasury Department issued “cease and desist” letter to HSBC for violations of the Bank Secrecy Act. This was followed by a Senate subcommittee investigation, which provided a comprehensive report and took hearing testimony on July 17, 2012. In what appeared to be prepared remarks, one bank compliance executive resigned at the hearing, while another executive indicated HSBC “did our best” in Mexico.

With nearly all of the investigation already completed by the Senate and already in the public eye, the Department of Justice was finally forced to file a four-count felony indictment against defendant HSBC on December 11, 2012, which included three felony counts relating to grossly inadequate anti-money laundering practices and one count for violation of the Trading With The Enemy Act.

On the same day, and over the objections of career DOJ prosecutors, then-AG Holder allowed HSBC to enter into a deferred prosecution agreement, under which the charges would be dropped if the bank stayed out of trouble for 5 years and paid a “record fine” consisting of $1.256 billion in forfeited assets and an additional $665 million in civil penalties. Added together, the punishment totaled approximately 9% of one year’s profits for HSBC’s worldwide operations, which amounted to a whopping $21.9 billion in 2011 alone.

Also the same day, then-US Attorney Loretta Lynch led a press conference alleging that (1) an alphabet soup of federal agencies had conducted a serious investigation and (2) the “record fine” was somehow adequate punishment. Notably, “ramrod straight” Mueller and Holder were not present, despite the obvious national importance of the case. The DOJ’s press release (echoed by the FBI, which simply re-posted DOJ’s release) bragged about the “heavy price” of the fine being imposed. Despite the “heavy price” paid for its rampant criminal behavior, HSBC was somehow able to sponsor the star-studded 2014 Clinton Global Initiative. (Perhaps not coincidentally, the Clinton Foundation also received up to $81,000,000 in donations from HSBC’s illustrious group of account holders.)

But not everyone bought into Lynch’s sales pitch. Even CBS News seemed suspicious of the deal, which was obviously disproportionate to the criminal conduct involved:

[arve url=”https://videopress.com/embed/gQOjSq5f” /]

While a US citizen sending money to terrorists can result in a 20-year prison sentence, and many US citizens have been sentenced to decades in prison for even marijuana-related crimes, the bank’s executives and employees never spent one day in jail for their roles in assisting terrorist-connected nations and Mexican drug cartels to do business in the United States—an example of the “two systems” of justice than many Americans believe exist between the elites and regular citizens.

If the FBI uses search warrants, recorded transactions, confidential informants, wiretaps, GPS tracking, and conducts a broad sweep of witness interviews in cases involving drug trafficking and terrorism in other cases, why wouldn’t Mueller have done the same to build a case here? Mueller’s absence in the HSBC case says as much about the cover-up as when Holder refused to prosecute over the objections of career prosecutors.

James Comey Joins HSBC’s Board of Directors: Less than two months after the 2012 deferred prosecution agreement, HSBC appointed James Comey to its Board of Directors as head of the Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee.

ComeyHSBC

When he joined HSBC, Comey left a job working as general counsel for Bridgewater Associates hedge fund, where he earned over $6.6 million per year, for a position at a disgraced criminal bank—one recently charged with laundering El Chapo’s money—that paid under $200,000 per year (approximately three percent of his salary at Bridgewater). It’s hard to say why anyone would take that job, and that pay cut, unless there was some additional incentive.

While Comey may have provided HSBC with a Norman Rockwell-type face for its money laundering reform program, it doesn’t appear that Comey actually reformed any of the bank’s practices. During the time Comey was on the Board, HSBC was involved in laundering hundreds of millions of dollars from Russia into the British banking system—a scheme with direct ties to the Kremlin and Vladimir Putin. Apparently Comey missed this activity while he led the search for “vulnerabilities” in HSBC’s “financial system.”

Comey left HSBC in July 2013 to become FBI Director when Mueller stepped down.

Mueller Became Partner At The Law Firm That Represented HSBC: In its 2012 Year In Review, law firm Wilmer Hale indicated the following: “our regulatory, transactional, securities and investigations experience converged in our representation of HSBC in connection with Department of Justice and Senate inquiries.”

Less than one year after leaving the FBI, the “utterly incorruptible” Mueller took a lucrative position as a partner at the same law firm that represented HSBC in 2012, working in the “government investigations practice” section of the firm. Although it’s unknown whether Mueller ever handled HSBC’s matters personally, Wilmer Hale still includes HSBC in its list of “representative clients.” In 2016 alone, profits per partner at Wilmer Hale were $1.81 million.

In May 2017, Mueller left the firm to become Special Counsel for the Russia investigation.

Subsequent Inaction: In 2014, President Obama appointed Loretta Lynch to replace Holder as Attorney General. Despite criticism of her role in the HSBC case, the Senate voted to confirm Lynch to the post in 2015. A few weeks before she was sworn in, her own office suggested that HSBC had not complied with the 2012 deferred prosecution agreement. What did AG Lynch do to hold HSBC “accountable” once she took over? Nothing. By 2016, even Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) was critical of Lynch’s inactionagainst HSBC—it was that bad.

Russia, Russia, Russia:

If Mueller failed to do anything to stop these obviously corrupt and criminal practices during his own 12-year term as FBI Director, it’s hard to believe that he will conduct a fair and impartial investigation into the politically-charged assumption of “Russian interference” in the 2016 presidential election.

Mueller isn’t the one to investigate the swamp—Mueller is the swamp. He is a dirty cop who never should have been appointed Special Counsel, and he should be fired immediately.

Chuck Schumer says that Democrats, not Russia, are to blame for Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Trump.

Chuck Schumer: Democrats, Not Russia, Are To Blame For Loss To Trump

Apparently Chuck Schumer just had a “Come to Jesus” moment with his thinking on Trump and Russia, Russia, Russia. Or else aliens have abducted the real Chuck Schumer.

From The Washington Post:

When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself,” Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said in an interview previewing the new plan. “So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.”

After blaming “Russian Collusion” for so long why is this slimy gangster changing his story now?

What on earth did the Democrats do wrong, Chuck?

Let´s see:

  • Nominate, via massive cheating, a known felon under FBI investigation with the personality of Nurse Ratched.
  • Her sex-appeal in the negative hundreds.
  • A documented career of non-accomplishment.
  • Lies galore and brazen corruption, backed up by a criminally negligent “press” several levels below pond scum.

The American people knew exactly what you Democrats stood for and we voted against it!

When Special Counsel Robert Mueller Was FBI Director The Alleged ‘Russian Lawyer’ Who Met With Donald Trump Jr Worked for him!

Russian At Donald Trump Jr. Meeting Worked For The FBI Under Mueller

More proof that it was a Set Up!

From True Pundit:

The Russian translator at the Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump Jr. worked with the State Department and the FBI during Robert Mueller’s tenure as Director of the Bureau, according to documents obtained by True Pundit.

Mueller, the former FBI director, is currently the United States Special Counsel investigating President Donald Trump’s administration and White House aides for alleged connections to supposed Russian factions. While Big Media has tried to portray Trump’s eldest son, Donald Jr., as having orchestrated a clandestine meeting with the Russians to attempt to find dirt on Hillary Clinton, few can seem to explain how a person linked to the FBI and Mueller, who was calling the shots for the Bureau at the time, ended up at the very same Trump Tower sit down.

Mueller’s office did not return calls for comment. The translator, Anatoli Samochornov, who also worked for the US State Department until recently, could not be reached for comment either. Former FBI officials with knowledge of the meeting and possible other FBI work performed by Samochornov refused to go on the record.

Samochornov has worked as an intelligence attache and translator for the United States in varying capacities for years. In 2010, while Mueller was FBI Director, Samochornov worked with the head of the New York FBI field office, FBI Acting Special Agent in Charge Lauren Anderson. Anderson worked with Samochornov in his role as “Program Officer” tor the State Department’s International Visitor & leadership program.

Anderson, who is now retired from the FBI, could not be reached for comment, although she has been quoted in the New York Times applauding ex-FBI boss James Comey’s alleged diligent note taking for his alleged memos compiled against President Trump. Anderson worked high profile espionage cases in Europe, Russia, France, and western Africa for the Bureau and ran the global terrorism program of the FBI’s New York Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) before her recent retirement, FBI sources said.

A web paged archived by the FBI New York Field office shows Samochornov and Anderson. We have saved the original page in case it is scrubbed. While the archived page does identify Samochornov, searching the Russian-born translator’s name via the search bar on the FBI site does not retrieve any results.

Lawmakers and Justice Department officials need to examine what, if any, additional roles or work Samochornov performed for and with Mueller’s FBI. The appears to be yet another glaring question of conflict of interest for Special Counsel Mueller. They are piling up.

 

 
 

New York Democrat Party Asked Robert Mueller To Recuse Himself In 2006

 Political  Comments Off on New York Democrat Party Asked Robert Mueller To Recuse Himself In 2006

Recusal because of being close to a witness? Good precedent to follow.

 

Spread this everywhere!

New York Democrat Party Asked Mueller To Recuse Himself In 2006

From the New York Times:

The F.B.I. director will not play a role in the inquiry into Decker College, the Kentucky school once run by William F. Weld, because the director and Mr. Weld, a Republican candidate for governor, are friends and former colleagues, an F.B.I. spokesman said yesterday. The New York Post reported the decision by Robert Mueller, the director, yesterday. The New York Democratic Party had asked that Mr. Mueller recuse himself, according to a party spokesman. Mr. Weld has not been accused of any wrongdoing involving Decker, which declared bankruptcy last fall amid allegations of fraud.
