Latest emails prove Clinton insider John Podesta manages back channels tied to Putin, Larry Summers, Facebook & secret control of the Internet

Contributing Writers | Opinion | AMERICANS FOR INNOVATION  | Aug. 12, 2016, Updated Aug. 21, 2016 | PDF
Vladimir Putin and Hillary Clinton are closer than you think.
Fig. 1–Vladimir Putin & hillary Clinton—Common financial interests—Vladimir Putin's political mentor, Anatoly Chubais, is Chairman of Putin's favored funding front—Rusnano (Russian Nanotechnology Corporation). Bill and Hillary's closest advisor, John Podesta, has been associated with various Dutch companies in which Podesta and Chubais have been directors and in which Rusnano invested $35 million. If this weren't close enough, one of the investors with Rusnano is the Wyss Foundation that made an up to $5 million donation to The Clinton Foundation.

Chubais helped lead the disastrous Russian privatization voucher program in the early 1990's pressed by then World Bank chief economist, Larry Summers. Summers later served alongside Podesta in the Clinton and Obama White Houses. Summers' aids in the Russian privatization debacle were Sheryl K. Sandberg and Yuri Milner, who were later placed in charge of global email and social networking via Gmail,, Facebook and VKontakte. In short, this small group has taken over the Internet by exploiting state powers.

in pay-to-play donations to The Clinton Foundation; (c) eventually sold 20% of the U.S. strategic uranium reserves held by friend Frank Giustra to Putin, approved by Secretary of State Hillary (considered high treason in most democratic countries); and (d) paid Bill $650,000 for one Moscow speech to Renaissance Capital whose founder, Michael Madden, recommeded a "BUY" on the Uranium One deal. Madden now works for Teneo Holdings founded by Douglas L. Band—the architect of The Clinton Foundation and head of Hillary's 2009 transition team. Band also figures prominently in stonewalled emails to Hillary on her private email server. See Timeline. Oh! what webs we weave . . .


(Aug. 12, 2016)The latest release of Hillary emails by corruption watchdog Judicial Watch show pay-to-play corruption on an unprecedented global scale. We focus on just one of the tentacles that ties Hillary & Bill directly to Vladimir Putin.


Anatoly Chubais, Chairman, Rosnano, POCHAHO
Fig. 2: Anatoly Chubais, Chairman, Rusnano (POCHAHO). In 1993, as an advisor to President Boris Yeltsin, Chubais collaborated with Larry Summers, Sheryl K. Sandberg and Yuri Milner to implement the disasterous World Bank voucher privatization program. They almost singlehandedly ushered in the age of the modern Russian oligarch. Summers, the Clintons, Sandberg and Milner have exploited these corrupt connections to sieze control of the Internet, in collusion with a secret White House spy agency created by Clinton, Bush and Obama executive orders. The NSA secretly operates outside of Congressional oversight through this White House group that authorized the illegal warrant-less surveillance of Americans. They quash all dissenting voices, like Edward Snowden and Julian Assange, in the name of national security.

Vladimir Putin created Rusnano (Russian Nanotechnology Corporation) to fund emerging technologies, especially his interest in nano technologies. In the old Soviet days, such entities were first and foremost spying opportunities. Little appears to have changed. As such, Hillary's activities with her campaign manager and longtime advisor, John Podesta, have likely risked national security. It is becoming evident that Hillary needed her private email servers to hide her Russian collusion, among other things.

No wonder Putin says he has Hillary's emails; some of them were probably addressed to him and CCed to Chubais about Rusnano and their other secret Clinton Foundation projects like UrAsia and Uranium One.

Rusnano’s chairman is Anatoly Chubais. Chubais served in Boris Yeltsin’s government and is said to have handpicked Putin out of the KGB secret police to be president. Notably, Chubais is an advisor to JPMorgan Chase (since 2008) and the Council on Foreign Relations (2012)—both Hillary Clinton and Facebook surrogates. See contrasting Russian Role Models below.

Chubais oversaw Soviet privatization in the early 1990's (the sale of the state-owned industries to private interests). This meant he collaborated closely with former Harvard professor Lawrence H. 'Larry' Summers, then chief economist at the World Bank.

Summer’s assistants at the time were new college graduates named Sheryl K. Sandberg and Yuri Milner.

Sandberg was assigned by these oligarchs to Gmail (2004) before being assigned to Facebook as chief operating officer (2008).

Milner was assigned to (2001) then VKontakte later—the Russian equivalents of Facebook and Gmail.

The foxes are managing  the world's digital hen house

Between them, the vast majority of the world's digital information flow passes through these self-annointed gatekeepers. This situation is the equivalent of the foxes managing the hen house.

After Obama became president and Hillary Secretary of State, Milner shocked Silicon Valley with a $200 million Facebook investment with no strings attached. Then, he ostentatiously overpaid $100 million for a Menlo Park mansion, the most expensive home sold in the U.S. that year.  There wasn't an ounce of humility or uncertainty in Milner's voice. Now we know why.

After Summers pressed his disastrous privatization plan on the people of the USSR supported by Chubais, Summers went to work for Bill Clinton in the Treasury Department where he eventually became Secretary. In 1999 Summers worked to overthrow Glass-Steagall banking controls. Sandberg became Summers' chief of staff.

Global Crook
John D. Podesta, serial Clinton advisor.
Fig. 3—John D. Podesta. Hillary & Bill Clinton's serial advisor and back channel for The Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Intiative (CGI). Release of his emails involving Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and CGI creator Douglas J. Band were stonewalled for years by the State Department. 44 email exchanges were just released on Aug. 09, 2016 to corruption watchdog Judicial Watch. Most of Podesta's back channel emails with Hillary are believed to have been deleted by Clinton's attorneys in the 30,000 she admits deleting, describing them as personal yoga and wedding plans. Any deletion of Podesta emails is criminal.

John Podesta

“Few Washington officials are tighter to the Clintons than John Podesta,” writes Peter Schweizer (Clinton Cash) in his just released essay From Russia with Money.

Podesta was Bill Clinton’s White House chief of staff (1998-2000). Before that he was an assistant to the President Clinton with various titles. He was later Counselor to Barack Obama at the White House, and is now Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager.

Takeover of the Internet

Much has already been written revealing the pay-to-pay relationships between Podesta and Hillary. Through Podesta, Hillary is directly tied to Russian business interests and the global takeover of the Internet via Gmail–Facebook (Sandberg),–VKontakte (Milner).

Through Summers, Hillary and husband Bill are directly responsible for the abolishment of Glass-Steagall in 1999 and the banking chaos that followed. Perhaps the banking instability was all intentional; meant to destabilize world economies. "In confusion there is profit." We do know from his financial disclosure that Larry Summers gave two speeches in early 2008 in Iceland where the 2008 crash allegedly started.

While a Hillary advisor in 2011, Podesta was appointed director of three related entities: Joule Unlimited (MA, USA), Joule Global Holdings, N.V. and Joule Global Stichting (Netherlands). From Russia with Money.

Hillary Clinton, John D. Podesta
Fig. 4—John D. Podesta with Hillary. Podesta has been revealed in new stonewalled emails to be the coordinator of Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative ("CGI") illegal collusion with the State Department. He worked closely with Hillary's political advisor Anne-Marie Slaughter, author of A New World Order. Slaughter is a George Soros in-law and advocates "disaggregated" government where the agencies operate autonomously; accountable only to the amorphous collective. In this environment, the Constitutional rules are discarded without Congressional approval as old and out of date anachronisms.

One of the Joule foundations where Podesta was a consultant, The Wyss Charitable Foundation, is an up to $5 million donor to The Clinton Foundation.

Two months after Podesta joined the Joule boards, Rusnano (Putin) invested $35 million in Joule Unlimited based in Boston. Chubais also joined the board.

The movie Clinton Cash exposed Bill Clinton’s uranium junket that gave Putin ownership of approximately 15% of the U.S. uranium reserves and $145 million in donations to The Clinton Foundation. See also Hillary's Swindling Silicon Valley Girls.

The latest Judicial Watch email release helps further confirm that via John Podesta and Anatoly Chubais, Putin’s mentor, their scoundrel plants Sandberg and Milner have compromised the integrity of world’s Internet services.

Can a reliable house be built on such a rotten foundation?

Clear and present threat to global security and privacy

The U.S. Constitution is clear that privacy from government intrusion is a right. That privacy has been obliterated by these Hillary Clinton alliances unearthed by Judicial Watch, WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, William Binney, Thomas Drake, J. Kirk Weibe, Americans for Innovation, The Center for Public Integrity, Alex Jones, InfoWars, ICIJ, Sharyl Attkisson, The Intercept and numerous others.

This attempt at controlling the world's flow of information by these hideous criminals should enflame, enrage and motivate every citizen of the planet into action to stop them.

We must be about establishing digital networks that respect the individual and his/her right to live a quiet and peaceable life, free of arbitrary intrusion by the state.

Perhaps in Russia such political and business conflicts of interest are a way of life, but they are crimes in the United States and other parts of the world.

We can do better. We must do better.

These scoundrels cannot be permitted to succeed.

Act now.

Stop election rigging in its tracks

P.S. When you control digital networks to the extent just described, rigging elections that rely on electronic voting machines and "Man in the Middle" connections between county and state computers is child's play.

The Nov. 2016 Presidential Election should go ALL PAPER. We have just proven that our electronic networks are compromised by unscrupulous criminals. The previous AFI post showed how the rigging happens and why we cannot risk our Republic to these systems.

So, we cannot use them for something as important to our Republic as a free and fair elections.


  1. Print enough Absentee Ballots for everyone,

  2. Leave the electronic voting machines in the warehouse, and

  3. Count by hand with bi-partisan observers up and down the chain from county to state tabulator.

It is that simple. States will have plenty of citizens willing to count the vote. Just ask. Only the cheaters lose.

Any reason not to do this just risks our Republic. There is no good reason to risk it for the titillation of instant election night results (which are probably rigged by the Man in the Middle anyway).

Postscript—Russian Role Models

Michael T. McKibben, Founder and Chairman, Leader Technologies, Inc., inventor of social networking
Fig. 5—Michael T. McKibben, Leader Technologies, Inc., Columbus, Ohio, the real co-inventor of and patent holder for social networking. See Timeline.

In 2009 Hillary Clinton and the State Department confiscated McKibben's invention for her personal "eDiplomacy" policy use. During this same time, McKibben and Leader were battling Facebook in Delaware federal district court for patent infringement. Leader proved on 11 of 11 claims that the engine running Facebook is their invention. Hillary's Judicial Watch emails prove she obstructed justice in the case and engaged in election rigging
Photo: NBC4i TV.

Notably, social networking inventor, Columbus, Ohio innovator Michael McKibben, described being followed and then body searched at the Leningrad airport in 1981. He had just met in Tallinn with an Estonian Christian activist who had just been released from prison for organizing Christian music concerts. His crime? A "parasitic" way of life. No kidding, that was a Soviet law used to send tens of thousands of their best and brightest to prisons, labor camps, and mental hospitals for the sin of wanting to live honestly, Nobel laureate Alexander Solzhenitsyn among them.

In 1981, a young KGB officer named Vladimir Putin was in charge of monitoring foreigners in Leningrad, so it could have been Putin that ordered McKibben followed and searched. McKibben called this possibility "a great irony of history, if true." He continued, "doubly so given the way I and thousands of my Soviet, Eastern European and Western friends stood up for basic human rights like self-expression, freedom from tyranny and freedom of worship in the former Soviet Union." He concluded, "St. Pope John Paul II was among our supporters."

Aleksandra Pakhmutova
Fig. 6—Aleksandra Pakhmutova

In this 2016 Olympic summer, McKibben pointed out that he and his music group, Living Sound, supported the 1980 Moscow Summer Olympics even while President Jimmy Carter boycotted them. Olympic music director Alexandra Pakhmutova put two of McKibben's songs on the official Olympic film Oh Sport! You are Peace!, and the state-run Melodiya Records sold up to one million EPs. McKibben says as far as he knows, his group Living Sound is the only contemporary American Gospel group ever to perform on national Soviet TV—videotaped concerts that occured soon after the Moscow Olympics and are said to have aired nationally on New Years Day in 1982.

In the early '90's, McKibben advised Russian Orthodox Patriarch Aleksy II on how to use emerging communications technologies for Church operations as they recovered from ninety years of persecution. He also was the Patriarch's special guest in one of the first post-Communist Church processions at the Kremlin and through the streets of Central Moscow. President Yelstin also participated.

See We Can't Live Without Each Other (Hам не жить друг без д руга) music video, A. Pakhmutova (А. Пахмутова), N. Dobronravov (Н. Добронравов) , N. McKibben, Living Sound, 1980, Melodiya Records / Mosfilm / Evgeny Ginzburg-CT USSR.

New! Aug. 14, 2016: Alongside Solzhenitsyn, Mr. McKibben asked us to acknowledge the Moscow family of Vladislav Eloyan. Vladislav is the president of the Russian Traditional Karate Federation. His grandfather, Rotefan, briefly served with McKibben's father-in-law in the U.S. 69th Infantry Division following the "Link Up" with the Soviet 58th Guards Division in Torgau, Germany on Apr. 25, 1945. On Jul. 4, 2010, Eloyan and McKibben co-authored Rotefan's story for the 69th Infantry Division veteran's website. When Rotefan returned home to Moscow, he was enslaved by the KGB in the Gulag alongside Solzhenitsyn in the Gulag.

During more than five years in ten forced labor camps Rotefan saw countless people starved to death, shot and beaten mercilessly by sadistic guards. In one camp a killing field was understood between the prisoners and guards. Any prisoner wanting to end his misery could walk into it and be shot dead, no questions asked. Even in those conditions, Rotefan organized resistance and wrote letters to members of the Supreme Soviet to stop the madness. Those letters apparently had an effect. Rotefan was released in 1955 by Nikita Khrushchev's return to sanity over the treatment of his WWII veterans. Sadly, Rotefan contracted tuberculosis at the tenth camp and eventually died of the disease at age 34. To add insult to injury, Rotefan was unable to find meaningful work after the Gulag because employers did not see the value of his survival experiences, first as a Nazi POW at age 16, then in Stalin's labor camps. Rotefan's story of bravery and determination in the face of impossible odds is truly awe inspiring. It is a powerful example of the need for less greed and power mongering in this world, and more love and respect for one's fellow man.

Pray for us Eloyan Rotefan Marcosovich!

    How many other wrongs are being hidden from the eyes, ears, and minds of the people? What is our media doing but covering up the real criminals.....they say Manning is a criminal BECAUSE they informed THE PEOPLE about the wrongs our elected/appointed officials are committing criminal acts

    1. The DNC hack, and the usual trickle of vulnerabilities and breaches continued. A researcher showed methods for unlocking “high security” consumer electronic safes without leaving any evidence of the attack, Oracle’s payment system Micros (which is used at roughly 330,000 cash registers around the world) was hacked, and a Windows vulnerability served as a reminder of why putting backdoors in secure processes doesn’t make sense.

  3. The hacker Guccifer 2.0 posted phone numbers, email addresses and passwords for nearly 200 sitting and former Democratic lawmakers on Friday, including current members of intelligence and armed services committees.

    The files were posted to a blog used by the hacker, which at least one cybersecurity firm has labeled an operation of Russian security services. Intelligence officials, other firms and Democrats have also accused operatives supported by the Russian government of hacking the Democratic National Committee this year

    At my age it is tough watching most Olympic events for more than five minutes..... they are either boring , or highly questionable due to judge bias. I have a few ideas that I am submitting to the Olympic committee.

    Soccer puts me to sleep. Let's cut the field in half and provide half of the players on each team with a small stick. Let them whack each other . After any goal, put the ball at mid field, line up the players with sticks on their respective goal lines, blow the whistle and let them run to get the ball and whack each other. There will be no substitutions.

    And diving, what a rigged sport. The Russian judge gives Americans a 2 while the Canadian judge gives them a 5. Are they looking at the same dive? A Trump presidency, however, might make all judges grade a 2. In order to avoid this bias, I propose that the winners should be those that go to the highest perch and dive into the least amount of water, are the winners . No judges. If a diver can actually still crawl to the podium after the dive and he was the highest with the least amount of water, he wins.

    And let's combine the floor exercise in gymnastics with the 100 meter dash and swimming ? How about a dash on their hands for the first for the first 25 yards, then a run for 50 yards, and then a butterfly stroke on the dirt for the last 25? If that gets boring, give them a stick and let them whack each other.

    Just a few innovative thoughts after a few glasses of Cabernet.

    Have a great day, TEX=

    The co-founder of the Clinton Foundation's Canadian affiliate is revealing new details about the charity's donors in an effort to counter allegations in the New York Times and the new book “Clinton Cash.”

    Hillary Clinton’s presidential run is prompting new scrutiny of the Clintons’ financial and charitable affairs—something that’s already proved problematic for the Democratic frontrunner, given how closely these two worlds overlap. Last week, the New York Times examined Bill Clinton’s relationship with a Canadian mining financier, Frank Giustra, who has donated millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and sits on its board. Clinton, the story suggests, helped Giustra’s company secure a lucrative uranium-mining deal in Kazakhstan and in return received “a flow of cash” to the Clinton Foundation, including previously undisclosed donations from the company’s chairman totaling $2.35 million.

    3.) Represents The Clinton Foundation,
    4.) The firm where Loretta Lynch worked before becoming the Attorney General,

  10. The Transparency and Integrity Fund (TIF or the Fund) promotes unfettered access to information – the lifeblood of democracy – as well as the integrity of American institutions through which we hold our government accountable and seek justice. We envision an engaged public with equal access to information and institutions, and active participation in democracy and public life. Broad and equitable access to high-quality information and effective accountability mechanisms are foundational to an open society, one in which government and corporate decisions and decision-making processes are transparent, and the public is well-informed and has the tools necessary to hold government, and government supported corporations, accountable. Recognizing that power is not broadly shared in American society, the Fund will focus on supporting efforts that address the needs of historically excluded or marginalized groups so that they are equally able to hold government and private actors accountable to their needs, and address the power imbalances in society. We see transparency and integrity not as ends, but as means to further broader institutional goals. When government decision-making is transparent, the public is more likely to trust the process and engage in it meaningfully, whether on policy issues or at the ballot box. When government data is widely available, advocates can use it to examine disparities, in the distribution of public resources for example, and bolster their arguments in favor of greater equity. When journalists and the media serve the public interest, every member of society can effectively monitor our governors. The need for transparency and accountability underlies every U.S. Programs (USP) core issue and transparency mechanisms serve the full set of USP goals. TIF issues are also closely aligned with transparency and technology concerns prioritized in OSI’s international programs. The strategic plan that follows was developed with the valuable input of TIF’s Board Advisors Ethan Zuckerman, Jonathan Soros, and Bryan Stevenson; USP Executive Director Ann Beeson; and numerous core TIF grantees, foundation partners, and USP colleagues. As described more fully below, the Transparency and Integrity Fund will advance the following overarching goals:

    • Ensuring a transparent democracy and an engaged public through support for

      On Tuesday, the Obama administration acted on a promise the president made on his first day in office -- to make government agencies more transparent, participatory and collaborative via an "Open Government Directive." Transparency-in-government advocacy groups hailed the announcement. The Open Government Directive will make an Open Government memo released in May operational by directing agencies to take specific actions during the course of a two-year timeline.

      The White House announced the directive during a live online chat with Chief Information Officer Vivek Kundra and Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra. Kopra solicited public comment on the directive through the White House Open Government Initiative.

      The day after his Inauguration, Obama declared, "Information will not be withheld just because I say so. It will be withheld because a separate authority believes my request is well grounded in the Constitution. Let me say it as simply as I can, transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency."

    House Republicans are continuing to push for legal action to be taken against Hillary Clinton, laying out a four-point case for the Department of Justice to charge her with perjury.

    According to The Hill, Reps. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and Jason Chaffetz of Utah — the chairmen of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees — found inconsistencies in what Clinton told a House panel last year regarding her use of a private email setup while she served as secretary of state and what the FBI discovered to be true during its investigation.

  17. On the eve of Gawker Media’s sale to … somebody, the author of its bankruptcy, Facebook billionaire Peter Thiel, was graciously given op-ed space in the New York Times to lay out his case against the blog network. Thiel, who funded the Hulk Hogan lawsuit that brought Gawker to the point of sale, casts his intervention as just one good deed in a crusade against privacy violations. That a man who became superrich thanks to a timely investment in Facebook, and who is an investor in surveillance contractor Palantir, is arguing for greater privacy protections is about the least-striking contradiction in the whole op-ed.

    Just like many thought. Ceglia is no fugitive, he was threatened and protected himself and his family. We're praying for you Paul. U.S. Attorney Preetinder "Preet" Bharara, was just assigned to "investigate" The Clinton Foundation. I'll bet you had a good laugh about that. (For readers who don't know, Bharara is the crooked U.S. Attorney that brought the now-proven-bogus forgery charges against Paul Ceglia using only the testimony of FACEBOOK experts.)

    Bob Van Voris. (Aug. 17, 2018). Facebook fugitive 'alive and well and living on the air'. Bloomberg / Chicago Tribune.

    The story sounded crazy from the start: a guy from upstate New York claimed Mark Zuckerberg owed him half of Facebook and he had the papers to prove it.

    Now, it's gotten even crazier.

    More than a year after the man, Paul Ceglia, cut off an electronic ankle bracelet and fled federal charges that he faked documents to bolster his lawsuit against Zuckerberg, Ceglia says someone — he didn't say who — was planning to have him killed.

    In e-mails to Bloomberg that reference cult television favorites and hint at government conspiracies, Ceglia has offered new tidbits about his life as an international fugitive, along with his wife, Iasia, his two pre-teenage sons and his dog Buddy.

    "I felt I had no one in government I could trust," Ceglia wrote in one of four emails. "An opportunity presented itself, so I MacGyver'd some things together and started running for my life."

    1. Here is a press release by FRIENDS OF PAUL CEGLIA:

      Here are several pate AFI posts that analyze the injustices being perpetrated by the US government against Paul Ceglia:

      AFI. (Apr. 08, 2015). Gibson Dunn lawyers taint U.S. v. Ceglia proceedings. Americans For Innovation.

    2. Ceglia says he was deprived of his right to a jury trial when the suit against Facebook and Zuckerberg in Buffalo was tossed out at the pretrial stage. And the government’s criminal case, filed 300 miles (500 kilometers) away in Manhattan while the civil suit was still pending, was also illegal because, in his view, he was prosecuted merely for filing a lawsuit.

      Facebook and Zuckerberg have said that Ceglia’s claim is bogus, that Zuckerberg’s contract with Ceglia involved only StreetFax, and that Zuckerberg didn’t conceive of the social network until later.

      In his e-mails, Ceglia, 43, said he was forced to flee due to a “very credible” threat that he would be arrested on new charges, jailed and killed before trial. The reason he was marked for death, he said, was fear that the trial would expose the involvement of the Central Intelligence Agency’s venture-capital arm, In-Q-Tel, in Facebook.

    Glenn Greenwald of the Intercept, formerly of The Guardian newspaper, laid out in an interview with Slate magazine that the media in the United States has decided to band together in a last-ditch effort to stop the rise of 2016 GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump.

    Greenwald, the progressive journalist who broke the Edward Snowden mass government surveillance storyline, was asked what he thought about Donald Trump’s press conference recently in which Trump joked that Russia should release any emails it has from 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton’s illicit private home-brew email server from her time as President Barack Obama’s Secretary of State.

  21. Secret Service leaker says Hillary Clinton suffers from Parkinson's disease.

    Kit Daniels. (Aug. 15, 2016). Secret Service leaks Hillary's health to press. InfoWars.

    Hillary Clinton apparently suffers from Parkinson’s or a similar disease and experiences seizures from flashing lights, such as camera flashes at press conferences, the Secret Service told Infowars.

    Additionally, the federal government has reportedly spent nearly a quarter-million dollars to add handicap steps on government vehicles because Hillary struggles with balance, a fact already established by a Reuters photo showing two men helping Hillary up stairs.

    The revelations explain her odd, epileptic behavior on camera and why she avoids press conferences in general.

  23. So much for DEM transparency. Seems that the Parties have become organized crime syndicates. Thank God for the Founders' principle of the Rule of Law over the Rule of (Wo)Men. We the People must throw the bums out on both sides before it is too late.

    David Levinthal. (Aug. 18, 2016). How Bernie Sanders beat the clock — and avoided disclosure. The Center for Public Integrity.

    As a Democratic presidential hopeful, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont vociferously argued for political transparency, especially when money was concerned.

    Sanders insisted, for example, “on complete transparency regarding the funding of campaigns.” He decried “huge piles of undisclosed cash” benefiting candidates.

    But when federal law required Sanders to reveal, by mid-May, current details of his personal finances, his campaign lawyer asked the Federal Election Commission for a 45-day extension.

    Request granted... again.

    Now he says he is not going to release them at all.

  24. I'm using your citation format to bring your reader's attention to this shocking (to me anyway) revelation that banker George Soros is meddling in the race issue. The leaked documents confirm that Soros finances Black Lives Matter. No wonder these poor folks have so much time on their hands to go and riot and advocate that our fine police be killed. Very sad indeed.

    George Soros’s Open Society Institute viewed the 2015 Baltimore unrest following the death of Freddie Gray as opening a “unique opportunity” to create “accountability” for the Baltimore police while aiding activists in reforming the city, according to hacked documents reviewed by Breitbart Jerusalem.

    The documents further confirm that the Open Society last year approved $650,000 to “invest in technical assistance and support for the groups at the core of the burgeoning #BlackLivesMatter movement.”

  25. Email comment by TEX:

    So Hillary, the presumptive president, and Trump, the presumptive landslide loser, are now talking about taxes. She wants more revenue ( taxes) and he suggests tax reform. She said she is going after everyone that has money. Trump is trying to sell his idea that companies will expand if they have more money to do so. It's fascinating that in 2015, the US is estimated to generate $3.3 Trillion in govt revenue from me and you. It's fun to read that we will have $19+ trillion in Fed debt by year end. This number ,by the way , is larger than our national GDP ( our total US economy). Imagine that , these numbers don't mesh.

    So , which one of our presidential wanna be's is talking about " how and why" we spend this much ? Does anybody think about the monumental waste, fraud, corruption, incompetence, poor management, inefficiencies, duplicitousness, and general theft ? C'mon man. Somebody get a grip. We have enough money each year. We collect trillions of dollars from the PRODUCTIVE citizens. What we need is a good dose of capable management/ leadership designed to stop waste and control spending. We need a big house cleaning. Fire somebody. We need new start ups, new ideas, energetic innovation, and better education. We need to feel safe, not enslaved by taxes and regulations. We need efficiency of collecting and subsequently spending my contributions.

    I guarantee you that Bill and Hillary don't squander their " pay to play " new found fortune . It is counted and protected. And Trump doesn't disregard the importance of wise spending, catching thieves within his organization including those taking kickbacks. That's the efficiency of free market vs government. Why are they not willing to do that for America ?

    So..... oh, never mind. No one gives a big hoot.

    Have a great day, TEX

    1. Hi TEX. Observation from the peanut gallery: Perhaps there are more that care than we think. Everybody that cares seems to be thinking that no one else cares. Perhaps everybody cares and are just keeping it to themselves, what with all this mainstream media bashing of those who disagree with their Progressive agenda.

      Perhaps all the Bernie supporters who are going to vote for Trump are keeping silent and will never put a TRUMP sign in their yard (to avoid the venom from the DEM neighbors if they told them what they really think about Hillary).

    Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy told Newsmax TV Thursday said the classified documents stemming from Hillary Clinton's FBI interview make the case that she didn't tell the truth.

    "I don't know if it's the agent's notes that they got or the actual report, but it's so redacted that even the people who have access to it aren't able to get at it and a lot of people just can't read it because they don't have the security clearance necessary to get it," McCarthy said during an appearance on the "Steve Malzberg Show."

    I want to thank the outstanding members of Congress who are standing behind me -- a bipartisan group, who, working with our Trade Representative's Office, as well as our Patent Office, have not only developed but actually passed for my signature the legislation that for the first time will provide civil actions for companies or individuals that are stealing trade secrets from our American innovators. As many of you know, one of the biggest advantages that we've got in this global economy is that we innovate, we come up with new services, new goods, new products, new technologies. Unfortunately, all too often, some of our competitors, instead of competing with us fairly, are trying to steal these trade secrets from American companies

    Amy Chozick, Steve Eder. (Aug. 20, 2016). Foundation Ties Bedevil Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Campaign. The New York Times.

    The kingdom of Saudi Arabia donated more than $10 million. Through a foundation, so did the son-in-law of a former Ukrainian president whose government was widely criticized for corruption and the murder of journalists. A Lebanese-Nigerian developer with vast business interests contributed as much as $5 million.

    For years the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation thrived largely on the generosity of foreign donors and individuals who gave hundreds of millions of dollars to the global charity. But now, as Mrs. Clinton seeks the White House, the funding of the sprawling philanthropy has become an Achilles’ heel for her campaign and, if she is victorious, potentially her administration as well.

    With Mrs. Clinton facing accusations of favoritism toward Clinton Foundation donors during her time as secretary of state, former President Bill Clinton told foundation employees on Thursday that the organization would no longer accept foreign or corporate donations should Mrs. Clinton win in November.

    But while the move could avoid the awkwardness of Mr. Clinton jetting around the world asking for money while his wife is president, it did not resolve a more pressing question: how her administration would handle longtime donors seeking help from the United States, or whose interests might conflict with the country’s own.

    2. Not inspiring Clinton cannot just make this election a referendum on Trumpism. She must outline a compelling vision for where she wants to take the country to fully activate the coalition that powered Barack Obama. “I am not a natural politician, in case you haven't noticed, like my husband or President Obama," Clinton said at The Post’s debate in March. The presumptive Democratic nominee campaigns in prose, not poetry. And she does not always try to be uplifting in her speeches.

    Here's more TV coverage of the Paul Ceglia Statement:

    Megan Erbacher. (Aug. 17, 2016). Report: Paul Ceglia seeking asylum in undisclosed country. WKBW.

    BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - A statement written by a person identified as Paul Ceglia has surfaced, and it suggests the American fugitive is planning to sue the United States for Human Rights violations.

    "I'll be delighted to be bringing this suit in international court where the completely biased media coverage I have often received in the US, will be forced to discuss the real issues in this case, rather than to create more tabloid stories that focus on me buying beer for my high school classmates 25 years ago or that I was caught after picking mushrooms in a field in Texas in the 90's," the letter states.

    The 28-paragraph letter, published on the Americans for Innovation website, indicates Ceglia is in good health. It confirms earlier reports from Bloomberg and Sky News that he is seeking political asylum in an unknown country.
    7 Eyewitness News could not independently verify that this statement is indeed written by the Wellsville, N.Y. man.

    The letter goes into detail about Ceglia's innocence regarding the Facebook fiasco that resulted in forgery charges against him.

    Allegations of collusion among the judges who have presided over Ceglia's various proceedings are also strewn throughout the statement.

    In 2014, U.S. District Judge Richard Arcara dismissed a lawsuit filed by Ceglia against Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Ceglia accuses Arcara and other judges of being "substantial" Facebook shareholders, and maintains he helped Zuckerberg create Facebook.

    "I also funded Facebook's start and developed the search engine that runs it," the letter says.

    "All this is ignored along with decades of a track record demonstrating my integrity to misconstrue age old facts into tabloid gossip."

    1. NOTE: AFI can verify that the Ceglia statement is genuine.

    Exactly how Clinton profited off deals with Skolkovo is something the American public has a right to know before November 8

    John R. Schindler. (Aug. 25, 2016). Hillary’s Secret Kremlin Connection Is Quickly Unraveling. Observer.

    Schweizer (Clinton Cash movie) shows that John Podesta sat on the board of a Dutch-registered company that took $35 million from the Kremlin. The company was a transparent Russian front, and how much Podesta was compensated—and for what—is unclear. In addition, Podesta failed to disclose his position on that board to the Federal government, as required by law.

    ‘In the old days, the KGB had to recruit spies to steal Western technology—now they do deals with you.’

    Even worse is how Clinton, Inc. profited from the Russian “reset” that was one of the big achievements of Hillary’s tenure at Foggy Bottom. Never mind that the reset was a disaster, culminating in Kremlin aggression against Ukraine. Hillary’s signature program at the State Department ended in unambiguous failure. Yet Clinton, Inc. did very well out of the temporary warming of relations with Moscow.

    As part of the reset, Hillary encouraged and enabled American and European investment in Russia, particularly in high-tech firms. A key role was played by the Skolkovo Innovation Center, a sprawling complex in Moscow’s western suburbs that was established in 2009 as Russia’s answer to Silicon Valley. With encouragement from the State Department, American companies jumped aboard. Cisco pledged $1 billion of investment in Skolkovo in 2010, and Google and Intel quickly joined the bandwagon. All three “just happened” to be major investors in the Clinton Foundation too.
