(INTELLIHUB) — As the FBI continues their crackdown on American citizens who were both directly and indirectly involved with the occupation of the Oregon Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, it is important to highlight the actual real crimes taking place at the highest levels of the United States government.
Taking over a wildlife refuge with absolutely no acts of violence in response to gross federal government overreach may have been illegal but it pales in comparison to dozens upon dozens of documented crimes and corruption committed by the Clinton “crime” family.
In late January, Intellihub founder Shepard Ambellas published a now viral report that connected the dots between the Hammond family, the BLM, Hillary Clinton, and a Russian mining company. Subsequent research by Jon Rappoport confirmed Shepard’s reporting and brought it to a major TV audience on the Infowars Nightly News.
In a nutshell, Hillary and her foundation have been implicated in a dastardly scheme, along with the Russian State Nuclear Energy Corporation, Rosatom, and a few dubious Canadian elite, to sell off American land to foreign entities for the purpose of uranium mining.
Unbelievably, this is literally only ONE of the many instances of obvious corruption by Hillary Clinton during her time as Secretary of State during which she turned the State Department into her own little pay to play operation.
Pay to play weapon transfers
In May 2015 the International Business Times published an exhaustive investigation into Clinton’s dealings during her tenure as Secretary of State. The report revealed that Hillary had approved hundreds of billions of dollars worth of arms sales to numerous sketchy foreign governments.
Unsurprisingly to those who have studied how the Clinton political machine works, almost all of the countries (and defense contractors involved on the other end) who received increased weapons deals had donated to the Clinton family foundation to the tune of over 100 million dollars.
To be clear, we are directly talking about a transparent pay to play operation that has been publicly exposed to include hundreds of billions of dollars yet agencies tasked with prosecuting these type of crimes (the FBI in particular) have so far filed not even a single charge.
The International Business Times reported: (emphasis mine)
Under Clinton’s leadership, the State Department approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations whose governments have given money to the Clinton Foundation, according to an IBTimes analysis of State Department and foundation data.
That figure — derived from the three full fiscal years of Clinton’s term as Secretary of State (from October 2010 to September 2012) — represented nearly double the value of American arms sales made to the those countries and approved by the State Department during the same period of President George W. Bush’s second term.
The Clinton-led State Department also authorized $151 billion of separate Pentagon-brokered deals for 16 of the countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation, resulting in a 143 percent increase in completed sales to those nations over the same time frame during the Bush administration.
These extra sales were part of a broad increase in American military exports that accompanied Obama’s arrival in the White House. The 143 percent increase in U.S. arms sales to Clinton Foundation donors compares to an 80 percent increase in such sales to all countries over the same time period.
American defense contractors also donated to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state and in some cases made personal payments to Bill Clinton for speaking engagements. Such firms and their subsidiaries were listed as contractors in $163 billion worth of Pentagon-negotiated deals that were authorized by the Clinton State Department between 2009 and 2012.
In all, governments and corporations involved in the arms deals approved by Clinton’s State Department have delivered between $54 million and $141 million to the Clinton Foundation as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments to the Clinton family, according to foundation and State Department records. The Clinton Foundation publishes only a rough range of individual contributors’ donations, making a more precise accounting impossible.
Alright so we have Hillary Clinton lining her and her families pockets in exchange for increased arms sales to our allies. Pretty blatant corruption but at least they are our allies right?!?
At this point the story gets even more sinister as it is revealed that many of the countries who donated to Clinton’s foundation and subsequently received increased weapons were authoritarian regimes accused of gross human rights abuses as well as a record of support for terrorists.
That’s right, as the FBI spends an ungodly amount of time, money, and energy in targeting and arresting Americans at a random wildlife refuge, former secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton walks free despite openly taking donations to sell arms to rogue nations, including chemical and biological weapons.
The IBT’s report continues:
The State Department formally approved these arms sales even as many of the deals enhanced the military power of countries ruled by authoritarian regimes whose human rights abuses had been criticized by the department.
Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar all donated to the Clinton Foundation and also gained State Department clearance to buy caches of American-made weapons even as the department singled them out for a range of alleged ills, from corruption to restrictions on civil liberties to violent crackdowns against political opponents.
As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton also accused some of these countries of failing to marshal a serious and sustained campaign to confront terrorism. In a December 2009 STATE DEPARTMENT CABLE published by Wikileaks, Clinton complained of “an ongoing challenge to persuade Saudi officials to treat terrorist financing emanating from Saudi Arabia as a strategic priority.”
She declared that “Qatar’s overall level of CT cooperation with the U.S. is considered the worst in the region.” She said the Kuwaiti government was “less inclined to take action against Kuwait-based financiers and facilitators plotting attacks.” She noted that “UAE-based donors have provided financial support to a variety of terrorist groups.”
All of these countries donated to the Clinton Foundation and received increased weapons export authorizations from the Clinton-run State Department.
Its almost as if she would specifically accuse a country of one abuse or another as a signal to them that it was time to donate. Once they did, the weapons begun to flow. This is a documented fact that cannot be changed no matter how hard the vast network of Clinton shills try to confuse and misinform.
The case of Algeria is particularly damning as the Business Times was able to prove that Clinton’s State-Department publicly attacked the country for numerous police state tactics only to change course and sell them arms, including chemical and biological weapons, at a 70 percent increase after they donated a cool half million to her family foundation.
In its 2010 Human Rights Report, Clinton’s State Department inveighed against Algeria’s government for imposing “restrictions on freedom of assembly and association” tolerating “arbitrary killing,” “widespread corruption,” and a “lack of judicial independence.” The report said the Algerian government “used security grounds to constrain freedom of expression and movement.”
That year, the Algerian government donated $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation and its lobbyists met with the State Department officials who oversee enforcement of human rights policies. Clinton’s State Department the next year approved a one-year 70 percent increase in military export authorizations to the country. The increase included authorizations of almost 50,000 items classified as “toxicological agents, including chemical agents, biological agents and associated equipment” after the State Department did not authorize the export of any of such items to Algeria in the prior year.
During Clinton’s tenure, the State Department authorized at least $2.4 billion of direct military hardware and services sales to Algeria — nearly triple such authorizations over the last full fiscal years during the Bush administration. The Clinton Foundation did not disclose Algeria’s donation until this year — a violation of the ethics agreement it entered into with the Obama administration.
Similarly, the monarchy in Qatar was chastised by the State Department for a variety of human rights abuses only to have Clinton oversee a 14-fold increase in weapons sales to the terror supporting nation during her time as Secretary of State.
The Business Times report also revealed that the arms manufactures on the other end of all these arms sales were also donating millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. Like I noted above, this is a transparent and utterly corrupt, full-scale pay to play operation.
That group of arms manufacturers — along with Clinton Foundation donors Boeing, Honeywell, Hawker Beechcraft and their affiliates — were together listed as contractors in 114 such deals while Clinton was secretary of state. NBC put Chelsea Clinton on its payroll as a network correspondent in November 2011, when it was still 49 percent owned by General Electric.
To recap, foreign countries and American defense contractors donated over 100 million dollars to the Clinton Foundation in exchange for a massive increase in arms sales that amounted to hundreds of billions of dollars.
Let that sink in for a moment. Americans such as the Bundy Family and radio shock jock Pete Santilli are targeted by the feds with literally hundreds of armed agents while open criminals using the U.S. government to makes hundreds of millions of dollars are left free to campaign to become president of the very country they have spent their life fleecing.
