The Truth Is In Here

Welcome to my Blog

Hello, My Friends!

Welcome to my blog. I have been posting on FB for some time. Some of my posts were very long….too long for FB, so I started this blog in order to share my research, my opinions and some insight from others concerning the political, economic, and governmental health of our country.
I am no one in particular, I am not famous, I’m not important, just an American that has experienced many things in life….however I have worked for wages, worked for a salary, and owned a business. I have seen life from the bottom, from the middle, and from the top. One thing I have done that few others have, is pay attention and do research. I have researched many things. I spent 13 years researching only scripture….no…not the Bible, but all scripture. I studied the founding and the constitution, developed new economic theories, and for years looked into the corruption in government. I have no special talent or ability…..just common sense, logic and a very skeptical mind set…..I question everything.
I don’t know if this will lead anywhere, but at least for the next few months I will be posting my research on our corrupt political process. Be sure to follow me on Facebook: here

The Corruption Continues, Part 4

Was there illegality in the Uranium One purchase

corruption

In my last three parts on the Uranium One story, which you can read here, I laid out the saga of how the Russian government came to own nearly 20% of America’s uranium reserves. I believe that I presented the facts as near as they could be collected, and presented them fairly. As I read through the essays, I asked myself if the readers would be able to ascertain what actions broke US law. In that regard, I now want to point to where laws may have been broken.

In part 1 of the saga I laid out the case exactly how Frank Giustra was able to acquire the mining rights to three large mines in Kazakhstan, worth billions, which was the first step in creating the Canadian company, Uranium One. Were any laws broken? Certainly, it is a fact that Kazakh laws were broken. Even though Mr. Ablyazov has not faced justice in Kazakhstan, he was tried, in absentia, for illegally selling the Kazakh assets of uranium rights to Urasia, and sentenced to 22 years in prison. If you will recall, he fled Kazakhstan to France, where France decided not to extradite him to Kazakhstan. He lives free today in France. But were any US laws broken? I am not a lawyer, or educated in US law as it pertains to contracts and corporate purchases. It is a fact that Bill Clinton flew to Kazakhstan and met with Mr. Ablyazov weeks before the deal was consummated. This meeting was long before Mr. Ablyazov was arrested and long before his criminality was prosecuted. All I can say is Mr. Clinton is no dummy. He should have known the kind of man he was dealing with. That said, there is a tactic used in business called “plausible deniability”. Mr. Clinton can certainly claim he didn’t know anything about Mr. Ablyazov, or his criminal behavior. All we can hope to gather is why he met with him at all? I suspect that this is not a provable crime.

The next part where criminality must be looked at, is the lack of prosecution of Mr. Mikerin in the bribery, extortion, and money laundering investigation, that was going on from 2009 until 2014, when Mr. Mikerin mikerinwas finally arrested, tried and convicted. Why did it take 5 years after the investigation was started……5 years? If I did not see a pattern in this case, I could only conclude that the FBI simply hadn’t collected enough evidence. But there is a pattern. In all that time Hillary Clinton was SOS. Certainly, every Clinton supporter will howel….coincidence! In one of my past blogs, I wrote about a man named Gilbert Chagoury. Mr. Chagoury was judged to be aiding terrorists, and thus, the state department was asked by the intelligence community to place Mr. Chagoury on the terrorist list. Hillary Clinton was SOS at the time, and ignored the request during her entire tenure. Again, in 2014, when she left, Mr.Chagoury was placed on the terrorist list. The pattern is that Mr. Chagoury is one of the largest contributors to the Clinton Foundation, just as Mr. Giustra is the largest contributor. Once again, no provable crime, yet the appearance of pay for play, while criminal behavior is being conducted is unmistakable.

Then there’s the actual approval given to Rosatom in their purchase of Uranium One. Even though Uranium One was a Canadian company, it was well known that Uranium One held American assets in uranium production. This information was known well before Russia initially purchased a majority stake, and also when they purchased the entire company. Just why approval was given is a mystery. There was similar outrage by congress, when Dubai attempted to take control of a US port. That sale was eventually blocked by CFIUS. In late January, of 2016, the CFIUS blocked a Chinese-backed private equity firm’s proposed $3 billion purchase of the lighting unit of Philips, a Dutch company, citing “unforeseen concerns.” Last summer, China Resources, a giant state-owned conglomerate, was forced to rescind its $23 billion offer for Micron, the U.S. memory chip manufacturer, because of worries that the deal would not clear the CFIUS review.

In February this year, Fairchild Semiconductor International, a Silicon Valley pioneer, turned down a $2.5 billion offer by another Chinese state-owned entity because of the near certainty that the CFIUS would veto the deal. Getting CFIUS approval is fairly common. I reported that in its 29 year history, CFIUS has only blocked 15 sales, while 114 have been withdrawn from consideration, out of the 2380 cases that have been considered. But certainly, uranium acquisition is far different than lighting technology? One thing different about the Uranium One purchase is the flow of money to the Clinton Foundation from Russia and directors of the company. Again, part of a pattern of pay for play. And in case I didn’t make it clear in the saga of Uranium One, Bill Clinton and Frank Giustra created CGEP.cgep(Clinton-Giustra Enterprise Partnership) A Canadian arm of the Clinton Foundation, where foreign donors do not have to be disclosed. Literally, billions of dollars flowed into the CGEP from Criminal and State donors, then funneled that money to the Clinton Foundation. A pure case of money laundering. I think if we had access to that donor list, we could get a much clearer picture of the pattern of corruption conducted by Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Last but not final, is the pardon of Marc Rich by Bill Clinton in 1999, and the $100 million Donated by Denise Rich. Did Bill Clinton sell a pardon? In 1999 you might have easily concluded no…..but after you see the pattern, today you might see it differently. Marc Rich and his company, Glencore, made may deals just like the one Giustra made, many times breaking the law. Its why he was a fugitive, and why, I think, Bill Clinton pardoned him. Adding to the intrigue was finding out that Frank Giustra not only enlisted the assistance of Bill Clinton, but also a man named Sergei Kirzin, a former employee of Marc Rich. Then there’s, shall we say, “unsavory characters” Bill Clinton considers friends, and known criminals and thugs he met with, while millions flowed into his charity. Men like Muchtar Ablyazov, Grigori Lutchansky, Marc Lasky, Viktor Vekselberg, and Alvaro Uribe. And then to find that Sergai Kirzin, a former employee of Mark Rich worked with Frank Giustra to close the deal in Kazakhstan, was just stunning.

So it doesn’t go unsaid. Pay for Play is a form of bribery and it is illegal. It has always been hard to prove, because one must show a quid pro quo. That is, a case must be made that an unrelated payment was made “in exchange” for an unrelated overt act. Because these types of criminality never have signed contracts or agreements in writing, often the proof is in a pattern of behavior. I think that’s exactly what we have discovered.

 

Perceptions of the Trump Train

I like to think of myself as an observer. I watch, I read, I remember. I put my observations into “the big picture” and try to explain to myself what I see.

I was a very early supporter of Trump. When he came on the scene, I had already spent years studying and researching government. I saw the push toward globalism as a mistake. I saw the stagnant economy being orchestrated by special interests. And I saw the destruction of the middle class being done purposely. No politician, in my mind, could change the course we were on. Then came Trump and his blunt talk about immigration and trade. The two things that globalism has harnessed to advance its agenda. Oh sure, there are others, but these are the two biggies.

trump 3

I studied every issue, researched dozens of polls, looked at all the candidates, and came to an awful conclusion, that I pound all the time, as you probably know: Corruption is at the heart of all of America’s ills. From domestic spending to foreign policy, corruption drives all of government. Call it what you will….politics, the Deep State, K-Street lobbyists, or special interests….its corrupt, its unaccountable, and it appears to be unrepairable. Then came Trump…..a brash, uncouth braggart that claimed he could Make America Great Again. When I saw the reaction to Trump from so many, I immediately knew he would win. You see, Americans come in two flavors…..those that love America and those that hate America. The former is a majority, but the latter is growing from generation to generation. Those that love America, of course, have seen what has happened to the country. But its been like the proverbial frog in the pot being brought to a slow boil….we just haven’t noticed the heat being turned up. These folks, the lovers of America, wanted change.  When George Bush senior was elected, they expected him to further Reagan’s policies. But I can tell you now, this is when it all began. The corruption, the globalism, and the shift in American status. When he didn’t live up to expectations he was thrown out. A new, fresh face, was elected to take over……as it turns out, one of the most corrupt individuals on the planet. His legacy was to institutionalize this corruption.

Let me stop here and explain something that my free trade friends never understood. Under Bill Clinton, we lived through some pretty good economic times. Clinton, to this day, gets credit for presiding over a robust economy. But did he?  Yes, he did. But what is not understood, is our move to globalism had some terrific short-term benefits. You see, it didn’t start as a mass exodus of jobs, a loss of manufacturing, and profits held offshore. It started with lower prices. Los Angeles Port to Be Super-sizedMillions of products were being shipped in at half the price of American made products. If you still had your job, you got a huge dividend……happy, happy, happy.  But slowly, over time, government orchestrated the decline. I say orchestrated, because it was no accident that companies fled abroad. Unions were causing trouble, taxes were going up, regulations were out of control, and work ethic and worker demands were changing. Big business, who now looked at America as a market rather than a home, began the change. With massive government help, the multi-national was born. Companies, that their only interest is to make money and increase value, and to do it wherever and however they can, took over government. The slow boil had begun. Even when Obama came on the scene and ran for president, both flavors of Americans still wanted the change that Reagan had started. A strong, free market economy, a world super power, and a country based on its founding principles of honesty, hard work, and freedom. Obama promised “change”. obama trumpThe word itself was the right word. It appealed to the lovers of America, because it was what they saw as necessary. But it also appealed to the haters, as they saw it completely differently. While the former saw it as a return to ethics and accountability, the latter saw it as a social renaissance . An empowering of every minority group that expressed a grievance. For the most part,  too many lovers of America ignored the past of Obama. They saw only that he was black and wanted the same things they did, and gave him their trust. Well, it not only didn’t work out for them, Obama was just as corrupt, just as supportive of the globalist’ agenda, and the change he promised was cultural, not economic.

Americans are still looking for change….at least the group that still loves this country. They are accused of wanting to return to some by gone era that no longer can be achieved….that globalism is here to stay and the culture must change with the times.

Trump!

So here comes Trump telling us he can give us that change. Of course he would get elected! After 8 years of Obama, a cultural apocalypse, and an economic malaise so destructive, the middle class has all but collapsed. Like all Americans that love this country, Trump saw the same things we all did. Immigration out of control, companies fleeing America, trade deficits at sustained, unprecedented levels, a foreign policy in retreat, radical Islam spreading, and yes, the swamp. In general, America in decline. Trump articulated the things we had been thinking and saying for years. Things must change. The same change that Reagan started and the last 4 presidents tried to stop.trump rally

But Trump did more than articulate. He spoke bluntly and without any political consideration. He spoke like a real person, like any one of us……the lovers of America! I must say, however, there is one thing that stands far above everything else, for me, when it comes to Trump. That is that he was truly honest. He had no ax to grind….he was rich. He had no special interests to satisfy…..he used his own money. He didn’t play political games…..he wasn’t a politician. This brings me to what I have observed. Trump enjoyed a very loyal, supportive base, of 30-35% of Americans.  He also was trusted by another 20% that, like the base. wanted that change. So where are we now?

Trump’s support of 50-55% has fractured. There are still plenty of supporters, but some are beginning to show unsteadiness. That said, I suspect that many of these shaky supporters were never strong supporters in the first place. I don’t mean this in a critical way, but truly, they were looking for miracles. Before the election many of these were NeverTrumpers, CruzAt the 2013 Values Voter Summit. supporters, or libertarians that swallowed hard when he won, and waited. I saw it, personally. Republicans reluctantly admitting that Trump was doing conservative things and pushing for conservative policies. I say reluctantly, because they took every opportunity to find fault. Nothing was ever good enough. To this brand of supporter, short of a new American Revolution…..unless a full return to the constitution was implemented immediately, nothing could be accepted, no matter who was president. Then there’s the free traders I mentioned earlier. They still believe Globalism and free trade are synonymous. They think that globalism was and is inevitable and that we need to adapt. They accuse Trump of being an isolationist because he wants better trade deals. This leads them to conclude that Trump is stupid and out of touch. we the peopleThen there’s the supporter that looks at the presidency as a dictatorship. That a president should be able to get anything accomplished, after all, Obama didn’t seem to have any trouble getting his agenda implemented? Let me say this about the president. Undoubtedly, the POTUS has a lot of power. But it is far from unlimited. Unlike what the constitution outlines as presidential power, the president has the power given to him by the special interests. Does that sound like something you doubt? Of course you do. How can you make yourself believe that special interests literally control the president? Because they control the congress and the bureaucracy, thus limiting the president or empowering the president, whenever that power is needed to implement one of those special interests. Take for example Healthcare. Obama wanted to implement a national healthcare system, in 2008. Something every Republican opposed. So why do we have the ACA? Was it because a few Republicans made deals with their vote as we were told….or was it that the special interests wanted the very thing they said they opposed? Then fast forward…..why can’t it be repealed? The Republicans say they oppose it, but can’t get it done. Why? Because the special interests don’t want it repealed. So see this clearly……one president wants something nobody wants but gets it written into law, while another president wants to end it, which everybody wants, but can’t get it done. You need to see this for what it is. This is how the system works for every issue in America, of any consequence. But I digress. So many of Trump supporters can’t understand why he can’t get the ACA repealed…that he should be able to make deals like Obama did…..he should use the Bully Pulpit to convince the American people….yadda, yadda, yadda! This demonstrates the naivety of many Americans. They still haven’t grasped the premise that the government is absolutely corrupt. So they blame Trump. For Trump, its like trying to write a letter, with your hands tied behind your back. He is trying to work within the rules, while the cogs in congress are being turned by the engine of corruption.  Finally, there are people who are just impatient for change that they were promised. They sit back, do nothing, and expect Trump….all by himself….will fix everything. They criticize everything he does, they say he’s not keeping his promises, they treat him like any other politician…but Trump is not that. Trump is like any one of us, only much smarter. He knows what the lovers of America want and is doing everything in his power to get us there. We must stay with him and we must stay focused on the corruption….speaking out often to make sure congress knows we know. Read the rest of my blog if you have any doubts….my 11 part series on the Clinton Foundation…..my three part series on the Uranium One scandal…..or the two-part essay on the deep state. It’s all there…..wrap yourself in the facts and spread them. I recently had the opportunity to talk to Congressman Jim Jordan about the Clinton Foundation. He asked me to send him what I had….I did. Will it matter? Probably not. He says the right things, seems sincere…but still no action. It will take thousands of us doing this to have an impact. But even then, we are up against more money than can even be imagined, and if you have learned anything about life as you make your walk through it….MONEY DRIVES EVERYTHING! Period!

Let me address one current news item that will come to demonstrate how far the corrupt government will go to stay in power and maintain the status quo. Recently, Judge Roy Moore, won the republican primary in Alabama. He defeated Mo Brooks, a sitting congressman, and Luther Strange, the republican establishment’ selection. He won fair and square in a deep red state, with a large majority of lovers of America. I could almost hear the voters words as they made their choice…..Mo Brooks is a politician…Nope!, Luther Strange is the establishment….Nope! Roy Moore….a long serving, principled judge, who absolutely loves America. Yes! roy mooreMoney flowed into Luther’s coffers…but it wasn’t enough. Now what I want you to see is how to look at what happened next in the context of corruption. First, you have to understand something. The republican congress hates being in the majority. At least, today, with Trump as president. You see, it was good when Obama was president because he could block whatever they did, same with the democrats…..when they had the majority and Obama was president, they too failed to move the people’s agenda. That’s how it works. They blame the other party for their perceived failures, when really they didn’t fail, everything went according to plan. They want and have adapted to a divided government. It allows them to blather on about doing the people’s work, while they continue to serve their masters……the big money special interests. But what does this have to do with Roy Moore, you ask?  Everything. right AFTER Moore wins the primary, a poll comes out showing him with a 17 point lead over the democrat in the upcoming special election in December. All through the primary, the establishment told the voters that Moore couldn’t win against the democrat….then why is he 17 points up? luthor strangeTime to take him down. Out comes the accusations, from so long ago that nothing could be proven one way or the other….a classic she said he said. But what is telling is that 15 minutes after the allegations were made a bevy of sitting republican senators felt compelled to weigh in and try, convict, and sentence Roy Moore to oblivion. The calls for his stepping aside were thunderous…from the right!   But think of this: Senator Menendez is on trial for corruption and pedophilia and not a peep from anyone that he should resign. In fact, they’ve been trying to figure out how they can get his vote back in the senate. If that’s all there was you might just call it hypocrisy, but there’s more. The senate recently put forward their tax “reform” plan. I put reform in quotes because this is far, far from tax reform…but that’s another story. In this tax plan, the corporate tax rate has been lowered from 35% to 20%. Almost everyone agrees that this is needed. Great! Then why does McConnell insist pushing it back until 2019, after the midterm elections? Because he fully expects and wants to lose the majority in the senate. This will allow the democrats to block this tax reform, so everything can stay the same. Once again democrats and republicans working to maintain the status quo. But now you question me….if everybody wants this, why would he want to stop it? Just like the ACA, everybody wants it but the special interests. In this case, the giant multi-national corporations. Think of this. The multi-nationals like Wal-Mart, Microsoft, Apple, Dow, and dozens of others are making gazillions of dollars with the tax system we have. They pay almost no taxes, meet no regulations and pay no high labor rates. Meanwhile, all your American competitors are strapped with all those things. If you think about it….as I have….its beautiful. What a great strategy. Once they lose the senate, Trump will become neutralized for the most part. They then can campaign on Trump’s inability to keep any of his promises in 2020, and be rid of him in January of 2021. The establishment wins. And you can bet your ass, that they are working right now on a plan to make sure what happened in 2016, never happens again.
pile of money
I hope you can see from this example, just how politics and money has destroyed our democracy. Our government no longer works to protect our rights or serve our needs. It simply is a product to be bought by those with the most money.

Rest assured I will continue to do my research and present the facts to anyone that will listen. But I am not hopeful that we can change anything. We’ve changed the people, we’ve changed the party, we’ve protested, campaigned, called, written, posted, and complained. But still, nothing changes. There was a time when right here I would right: “Not until we……”, but I just can’t do it. There is nothing we can do as a people who can change things short of revolution….but even that might not be enough. Its one thing to fight a government that’s corrupt and tyrannical….its quite another to fight 50% of the population that thinks everything is perfect and should continue….the rubes on the left that can’t find their ass in a snow storm with two hands. Our best hope is to stay on the Trump Train, pick up as many stragglers as we can and ride that train for as long as we can. Trump is doing his part….we have to do ours.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Corruption Continues, Part 3, The take over

Ahhh, yes, where to start…..In 1993, shortly after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the US entered into an agreement with Russia titled “1993 HEU Purchase Agreement” The agreement was for the US government to buy as much of Russia’s nuclear fuel used in nuclear weapons as they were disassembled in accordance with the 1991 treaty, START 1

This material was then sold to the US government through a newly formed agency called United States Enrichment Corporation (USEC) This material provided funding for a then, shaky nuclear industry in Russia after the collapse. At the same time it supplied 50% of all the fuel America’s existing nuclear plants required. This arrangement of government to government ended in 2013. But by that time Russia was selling the US this same material, but commercially on the open market. That began in 2011 Russia now sells directly to our utility companies. I suppose, knowing Russia as I do, that probably was a mistake. Bring in the corruption!

Shortly after Hillary Clinton became SOS, the FBI opened an investigation into what they thought might be illegal activity within the American nuclear fuel industry. They began to accumulate evidence that kickbacks, bribes and money laundering were taking place.  A Russian national working for Rosatom, named Vadim Mikerin was transporting enriched uranium directly to utility companies, from Russia, using no bid contracts with TENEX, the subsidiary of Rosatom that was selling the uranium.

These contracts were above market rates and kickbacks ensued, being paid to offshore shell companies for consulting or other phony services never performed. We now know….in 2017…..that the FBI had an informant within the criminal element that was recording and watching the criminality. All through the 2009-2010 period, when Rosatom was taking a majority interest in Uranium, the FBI never revealed any part of the investigation to congress or any agency of the government, even though they had overwhelming evidence. They kept this investigation secret for 4 more years until 2014, when Mikerin and his associates were arrested. You can read the indictment here. Keep in mind, CFIUS, who I’ll speak about next, had a chance to stop this sale of American uranium. The FBI knew that crimes were being committed. They allowed these crimes to continue for over 5 years. Not until Russia invaded Crimea did they take action. By then HRC was no long SOS. Coincidence?

 

 

Uranium 1 timeline

In the spring of 2007, Uranium One makes a play for Rio Tinto, one of the largest metal mining multinationals in the world. Rio Tinto has operations in the US and does mine for uranium. The two behemoths come to an understanding.

energy metals
Energy Metals, Wyoming

But prices on ore begin to rise dramatically and Tinto pulls out of the deal. Not to be detoured, Uranium One sets its sights on Energy Metals, a relatively new company who has spent the last three years acquiring American properties rich in uranium reserves. They come to an agreement and Uranium One now owns 20% of American uranium reserves. Since Uranium One is a Canadian company, no fuss was made and no investigation took place.

Energy Metals sprawling uranium processing plant in Nevada

 

This brings us to June of 2009. I realize I bounce around a little, but this is not a linear presentation, as much as I would like it to be. There are many things happening at the same time.  In June of 2009, Russia buys 17% of Uranium One stock. Now, I hate to have to explain this, but Uranium One is a Canadian company, not an American one. Private stock purchases are not normally scrutinized by law enforcement or government. But also remember, there is an active investigation by the FBI going on in June of 2009, and this is Russia.

Now I have to explain CFIUS. CFIUS stands for Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. This is not an agency or department, but a committee. The committee is made up of 16 people working at various agencies and departments. Some are absolutely top level people. These are the positions represented on CFIUS:

  1. Department of the Treasury (chair)
  2. Department of Justice
  3. Department of Homeland Security
  4. Department of Commerce
  5. Department of Defense
  6. Department of State
  7. Department of Energy
  8. Office of the U.S. Trade Representative
  9. Office of Science & Technology Policy

The representatives of these agencies each get a vote on whether or not the sale or transfer of an American company represents a national security risk. 7 more agencies participate and assist, but don’t have a vote. They are:

  1. Office of Management & Budget
  2. Council of Economic Advisors
  3. National Security Council
  4. National Economic Council
  5. Homeland Security Council
  6. Director of National Intelligence
  7. Secretary of Labor

  The problem with CFIUS is, its a voluntary system. Companies can alert the government…IF….they believe the sale or transfer would be a risk to national security. Since its inception in 1988, 2,380 notifications have been voluntarily made to the federal government. Out of all 2,380 notifications, only 219 cases have been investigated, and out of those 219 cases, only 15 have been disallowed. That’s 15 cases in 28 years, about 1 every 2 years. The general policy of the United States is to not get involved. As you can tell from the numbers, it is rare to block a sale of a business. During Hillary’s time as SOS, 289 notifications were made and only 1 case was disallowed.

CFIUS is the hammer the media has used to make the misleading statement that “Hillary gave away 20% of America’s uranium” Although that is a misleading statement, since Hillary was only one of 9 votes, think about this: 5 affirmative votes can stop any blockage of a sale. Now look at who the 9 people were at the time of this vote.

  1. Timothy Geithner
  2. Eric Holder
  3. Janet Napolitano
  4. Gary Locke
  5. Leon Panetta
  6. Hillary Clinton
  7. Steven Chu
  8. Ron Kirk
  9. John Holdren 

  When CFIUS gets notified by companies that have made or are about to make a sale or merger, they have the option of conducting an investigation. In 2010, Russia was vying for a 51% share of Uranium One, a company that controlled 20% of American uranium reserves. CFIUS investigated and approved the sale in October of 2010. In June of 2010, 4 months earlier, Bill Clinton traveled to Moscow and was paid $500,000 for a speech. Coincidence? When that investigation took place, why was the FBI silent on what was transpiring with Rosatom and the bribery and kickbacks that had been going on in the uranium sales Rosatom was making? Was nobody aware of the money flowing into the CF from Russia and the people involved with Uranium One? For me it defies credulity that none of this was known by are highest officials.

To be fair, Homeland Security was not on board with approving the uranium deal—at least not publicly.  On July 20, 2010, Uranium One announced that Rosatom intended to take 51% of the company.  Less than three months later, U.S. Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner asking the CFIUS to block the sale of uranium to Rosatom.  She was joined by other US representatives, the Ranking Members of the House Committees on Financial Services, the Armed Services, and Homeland Security. However, a few online posts suggest that Homeland Security did indeed approve the deal and that the other affirmative votes supposedly came from the Attorney General and the Secretaries of Defense, Commerce, Treasury, Energy, and the State—leaving  John Holdren and Ron Kirk as the only ones that didn’t sell America out.
There’s one final piece to the story. In 2013, Rosatom buys the balance of Uranium One stock, which will give Russia 100% of Uranium One. Once again CFIUS has an opportunity to reverse the sale.  Still no mention by the FBI that Mikerin or TENEX is under investigation. But CFIUS does an investigation, they meet with Rosatom officials and get concessions. Rosatom agrees to leave Uranium One on the Canadian stock exchange, leaving it to be a public company. They also agree to not export any American uranium. Neither agreement is honored….big surprise! Immediately Russia removes Uranium One from the stock exchange, making Uranium one in affect a private company wholly owned and operated by the Russian government. We also now have firm evidence that Rosatom has been exporting tons of processed U308 yellow cake uranium. But that’s not the best part. Read this account from the “Hill” that explains the evidence of export. If this doesn’t speak volumes about the corruption in our government, then I guess you just can’t be convinced:

Rosatom’s new uranium facility in South Africa

NRC memos reviewed by The Hill show that it did approve the shipment of yellowcake uranium — the raw material used to make nuclear fuel and weapons — from the Russian-owned mines in the United States to Canada in 2012 through a third party. Later, the Obama administration approved some of that uranium going all the way to Europe, government documents show.  NRC officials said they could not disclose the total amount of uranium that Uranium One exported because the information is proprietary. They did, however, say that the shipments only lasted from 2012 to 2014 and that they are unaware of any exports since then.

NRC officials told The Hill that Uranium One exports flowed from Wyoming to Canada and on to Europe between 2012 and 2014, and the approval involved a process with multiple agencies.

Rather than give Rosatom a direct export license — which would have raised red flags inside a Congress already suspicious of the deal — the NRC in 2012 authorized an amendment to an existing export license for a Paducah, Ky.-based trucking firm called RSB Logistics Services Inc. to simply add Uranium One to the list of clients whose uranium it could move to Canada.

The license, reviewed by The Hill, is dated March 16, 2012, and it increased the amount of uranium ore concentrate that RSB Logistics could ship to the Cameco Corp. plant in Ontario from 7,500,000 kilograms to 12,000,000 kilograms and added Uranium One to the “other parties to Export.”

The move escaped notice in Congress.

Uranium One’s American arm, however, emailed a statement to The Hill on Wednesday evening confirming it did export uranium to Canada through the trucking firm and that 25 percent of that nuclear fuel eventually made its way outside North America to Europe and Asia, stressing all the exports complied with federal law.

“None of the US U308 product produced to date has been sold to non-US customers except for approximately 25% which was sold via book transfer at the conversion facilities to customers from Western Europe and Asia,” executive Donna Wickers said. “Any physical export of the product from conversion facilities to non-US destinations is under the control of such customers and subject to NRC regulation.”

In conclusion, the questions I posed require an answer. Whether or not we get one is unknown. Once again we have a dysfunctional congress “looking into it”. What do you want to bet that, like so many issues that congress investigates, nothing comes from any of it. Here’s what I believe: The plan to give Russia control of so much uranium was hatched a long time ago by Putin, the oligarchs in Russia, and the Clintons. Millions and billions of dollars were made by a few…and a lot more to come, people were killed. It seems like we are always asking the question is our government inept or corrupt? After looking at this story how can you not know it is corrupt beyond repair? And collusion? This passed collusion about 20 paragraphs ago. This is criminality at a level beyond comprehension. We used to be the good guys…working for good and honor and truth. How can we claim that today. We are as corrupt as any third world despotic shit hole in the world. I’m sorry, but I have no answers. As long as the crooks have control of our justice system there is little we can do to stop it. Pray that Trump can make a difference.

The Corruption Continues, Part 2 The building of an empire

The creation of Uranium One

gold mine
New Kleinfontein gold mine,     South Africa

In Part 1 of this series, I laid out the Kazakhstan connection to the Uranium One scandal. You can read Part 1 here.  Let me pick up the story from there.

 

Two months after the illegal sale of Kazakh mining rights to Frank Giustra, another Kazakh official died. This time it was Zamanbek Nurkadilov. He was head of government’s emergency situations department. It was portrayed as another suicide. He apparently shot himself in the chest twice, just before shooting himself in the head. At least that was the official government explanation. The story that followed made it out to be a politically motivated death. In March of 2004, 8 months earlier, Nurkadilov spoke out in opposition to the corruption in the administration…..that means he was criticizing the president. But I must say, I believe this has more to do with the meeting between Ablyazov and Clinton, and the sale of the Kazakh mining rights than with the presidential corruption.  Look at this account from a middle Asian website called Registan.net:

“Nurkadilov had served as a parliamentary deputy, administrative head for Almaty and the surrounding region, and head of the government’s emergency situations department. In March 2004 he suddenly accused the administration of President Nursultan Nazabayev of massive corruption, and was gathering information on the first family to support allegations that they had illegally acquired many state properties and enterprises.”

Seems like Mr. Nurkadilov might have known what was going on. For him to be killed so soon after that acquisition, to me is suspect. This is how these guys play. Anyway, just a little intrigue for your enjoyment. I would like to diverge from the timeline for just a couple of paragraphs:

For over a year, opponents of Donald Trump have tried to link the president to Russia. That somehow he stole the election colluding with Russia. Other than there being no evidence of any of it, the indoctrination of the rubes on the left has been complete. Sadly, none of these leftist followers will read my blog or seek the truth for themselves. The Clinton’s, the Russians, and organized crime have been in business together for a long time. As I was doing this research I asked myself, why did Giustra take Clinton with him to Kazakhstan? Why did he believe Clinton could help him? Most media accounts have concluded that He spoke favorably about Nazarbayev, just before the 2005 election. Really?  Then there’s that meeting with Ablyazov. What we do know now, is Ablyazov is a big time criminal. I only outlined a tiny fraction of his criminal activities. In 2009 he fled Kazakhstan for London. He found himself on trial for embezzlement of BTA bank. The trial was the biggest in England’s history. Just before his sentencing on just one charge, he fled, to become a fugitive. A year later he was captured in Nice, France and put in a French jail where he would face extradition to Kazakhstan. After nearly 4 years of delay the French high court refused to extradite Ablyazov, and set him free. Its amazing what money can buy. He went on trial in Kazakhstan anyway in absentia and was convicted and sentenced to 20 years in prison. You can read about those two trials here and here.
But still the question remains: why take Clinton? Seems like Clinton knows a lot of people. Some of them not so savory. Take Grigori Loutchansky.

Loutchansky
Grigori Loutchansky

Mr. Loutchansky was invited to an intimate fund-raiser dinner with Bill Clinton back in 1993. He is a notorious Russian mobster who happens to own a bank…..do tell! Nordex in Vienna tied to Russian money laundering for years is run by Loutchansky. He has flown with Bill Clinton and Al Gore and was even invited to a Washington DNC fund raiser, but backed out in fear he would be arrested when coming to the United States. One connection to our story, is that Loutchansky is a known trafficker of nuclear materials and nuclear technology.

vekselberg
Victor Vekselberg

Then there’s Viktor Vekselberg. Although a story for another time, Mr. Vekselberg started the technology city of Skolkovo in Russia. Created during the “Russian Reset”, Skolkovo was an attempt to encourage American technology companies to invest in Russia……and they did! Billions of dollars and untold technology flew into Skolkovo. If that isn’t stupid enough, 17 of the 28 companies that invested there, donated up to $25 million to the Clinton Foundation….you can draw your own conclusions. You also can read more about Skolkovo here.

 

I could go on, but you get the picture. Bill Clinton knows the right people, or should I say the people who can make him money. This is what Frank Guistra needed. A connection to someone who was willing to sell him what he wanted….Bill Clinton earned his 31 million dollars.

But now, its time to get back to our timeline.

Uranium 1 timeline

Just how was Uranium One created. We’re now in early 2003. A man well versed in Mining is struggling with his 100+-year-old gold mine in South Africa. The mine (pictured at the top of the page) is the New Kleinfontein gold mine, and the man is Neal Froneman

neal froneman
The gold is almost gone and Froneman is about out of money. He takes what he has left and begins to convert the gold mine to a uranium mine. He controls many miles of land that contain uranium reserves. Another South African Mining company notices and a merger takes place. Aflease Gold and Froneman’s company merge under Aflease’s banner. Froneman remains at the helm, his gamble pays off. 3000 miles away in Australia, another struggling uranium company has been trying to open a uranium mine and processing facility called Southern Cross. They finally manage to get all the government approvals and the “Honeymoon” mine is reopened in 2004. Aflease has been looking around to expand its position in the world in uranium. They tender an offer for Southern Cross and in 2005 merge with Aflease to form a new company called SXR Uranium One. This is only a few months before Guistra makes his deal with Ablyazov. Just about immediately, talks begin between Aflease and Giusta’s Uraisa. Less than two months later in February of 2006, SXR buys Urasia……are you ready….for $3.1 BILLION! The new company formed is Uranium One.

The new Uranium One is now a Canadian Company listed on the Canadian and South African stock exchanges. It is now the 4th largest uranium producer in the world. Ian Telfer, a close confidant and friend of Frank Giustra is placed at the helm. Froneman remains in charge in South Africa. Over the next three years, Telfer and Uranium One directors will donate $8.6 million to the Clinton Foundation.

In the same month that Giustra seals the deal with SXR, . the still head of Kazakhstan’s nuclear energy, flies to Chappaqua to meet with Frank Giustra and Bill Clinton at his home. Both Clinton and Giustra deny the meeting took place then recant when evidence is produced. Boy, would I loved to have been a fly on the wall in that meeting.
About a year later the wheels are starting to come off in Kazakhstan. President Nazarbayev is pressuring Ablyazov to sell his shares of BTA Bank to the state. When he refuses, Nazarbayev nationalizes BTA and just takes it. Ablyazov flees to London. Not long after, Mukhtar Dzhakishev is arrested and Uranium One is getting worried

There are rumblings within Kazakhstan that the sale of those assets to Giustra was illegal. Now…this next part is important: All our media reports say that Hillary “signed” off on the sale to Russia, but this is what she was needed for and what the $31 million dollars bought. The US State Department, in December of 2009, pressures Kazakhstan to ok the deal, in writing. However, it transpired……they complied. It has been reported that Tim Phillips, a close advisor to Hillary Clinton and DNC operative met with Kazakh officials and made it clear that large DNC contributors were anxious to get this deal done. I would guess that a lot of money crossed some very important hands.

In my next installment, we will learn how Uranium One acquired American uranium and how the Russians got it.

The Corruption Continues, Part 1, The Kazakh Mob

The Saga of Uranium One

I have spent over two years researching and chronicling the corruption within the Clinton Foundation and its many egregious acts that have never been brought to light. Recently, the selling of 20% of America’s uranium reserves has caught the attention of the major media industry. Even though I have written about this in the past, I have been doing further research on this single issue. I have read countless stories, some sensationalizing the reported scandal, but none have told the whole story. To be fair, its possible the whole story can never be known, but I have attempted to piece together a lot of what I already knew with what is being reported, in order to give a much more comprehensive understanding of just what happened. In the next few blog posts, I will layout the evidence against Bill and Hillary Clinton, and others in this blatant act of corruption.

First, let me start by saying this saga is extremely complicated….extremely! I couldn’t begin to know or explain all the turns and twists that led to Russia owning 20% of America’s uranium reserves. I can only provide a fair overview, touching on the building blocks that make the case. For real detail, with all the hard to pronounce names and the dozens of shells and holding companies that made it all possible, you will have to go to the links I will provide throughout each blog post.

I think the best and easiest way for me to explain it is to start with a timeline of events. These events cover a fifteen year period of time. I will then expand on each event below the timeline, including the timeline in each blog post.

All of us bloggers, who seek the truth, are always looking for that proverbial smoking gun. The players in this corruption are no idiots. They skirt the law, hide from the law, cover up mistakes, and adapt very well. Smoking guns are rare, so all one can expect to accomplish is to make a case by voluminous and overwhelming evidence that allows the reader to draw educated conclusions

Uranium 1 timeline
Uranium One Timeline

 

 

Whatever you’ve read or have seen about the Uranium One scandal, you have not gotten the whole story. The corruption is so extensive and so disgusting, not even a screenwriter could make a movie this creative. Even though I am starting this story in Kazakhstan, the Clinton corruption spans the globe and time. Bill and Hillary Clinton are truly American oligarchs.

 

Kazakhstan is a former part of the Soviet Union. It was created in 1991 when the Soviet Union disbanded. Kazakhstan is the largest of the former soviet republics, now an independent nation.  You cannot understand Uranium One without understanding the kazakhstancorruption in Kazakhstan. By 1997, Kazakhstan was becoming very corrupt. The president, elected in 1989,  Nursultan Nazarbayev, remains president today in his fifth term. In 1997, a young businessman of 34 became a favorite of the president. His name is Mukhtah Ablyazov. He started a business selling commodities like sugar and salt. He learned how to create a holding company and after a few years became quite successful owning several companies. Nazarbayev, appointed him head of the state owned electric grid agency, where he swiftly turned it around to be a money maker. Within a year he was made minister of energy, industry, and trade of all Kazakhstan.  You can read more about him here.

Mukhtar_Ablyazov
Mukhtar Ablyazov

 

Mukhtah Ablyazov will play prominently throughout this story.  Also in 1997 a friend of  Ablyazov’s was also appointed to a high post. Mukhtar Dzhakishev was made the head of Kazatomprom, the agency that oversees atomic energy, including uranium. By 1998, many of Kazakhstan’s banks were failing. Three of the largest merged into one, naming itself BTA Bank.  Ablyazov was able to borrow money and in early 1999 he bought BTA Bank. He was able to turn the financial sector around and BTA began to attract foreign investment. For all intent and purposes,

Mukhtar Dzhakishev
Mukhtar Dzhakishev

Ablyazov was headed for great success. But then he made a small mistake. Unable to work within the corrupt auspices of Nazarbayev, he started a political party in opposition to Nazarbayev. He quickly was accused of being corrupt, himself, and jailed. He was released from prison after pledging to disband and disavow his new party. He now would change course. He began to Raid BTA of billions of assets. He created close to 1000 shell companies in every tax haven in the world, successfully hiding billions. The Kazakh mines that were key to the Uranium One scandal were part of this scheme.

While Ablyazov was in jail, a close friend took charge of the bank. One Yerzhan Tatishev. He had been working on a large deal with Russia. In Russia and Kazakhstan business is not conducted like it is here. Here is an account from an Eastern website called “Llama”, that outlines what happened when Ablyazov was released from jail:

ABLYAZOV PARDONED, TATISHEV MURDERED

“Mukhtar Ablyazov was pardoned a year later by President Nazarbayev in exchange that he publicly promise to stay out of politics.  Ablyazov conceded and after a stint in Russia he returned to Kazakhstan only to have his friend and BTA bank president, Yerzhan Tatishev, shot and killed in December 2004.  In what was described as a hunting accident, Platt’s Oilgram (Volume 84, Number 87) reported the following:

“Tatishev had been reported to own from 20% to 60% of BTA, which has spread in recent years into Ukraine, Azerbaijan and other Central Asian venues. Tatishev was shot in the back of the head while driving his own Jeep on a hunting trip in December 2004. While reaching for a loaded rifle, the security-conscious marksman, known to always use a driver, reportedly hit a bump and the gun went off.”

That sounds legit.  According to a Wikileaks cable, Tatishev was set to complete a multi-million dollar financing deal with Leningrad Oblast, inferring that perhaps that was why he was eliminated or that it was his ties to Ablyazov’s political party that did him in. Others say he stashed BTA money in the U.S. a year prior but many believed Ablyazov himself was behind Tatishev’s demise.  Rumor had it that Tatishev held Ablyazov’s stake in BTA bank after he was arrested and charged in 2002.  When Ablyazov returned to Kazakhstan he not only wanted his shares back, he wanted Tatishev to take part in a criminal financial scheme but Tatishev refused.”

Shortly after the murder of Tatishev, Ablyazov and  Dzhakishev create two new shell companies: Urasia London, Ltd. and Jeffcott Group, Ltd. The shell companies were registered offshore and set up specifically to own Kazakh mining interests. Two of the biggest mines were 30% owned by the state and 70% owned by BTA Bank. A lesser mine was 70% owned by the state and 30% by BTA. The BTA portions were now sold to the new shell companies for $100,000. A mere pittance of their value.  Only weeks later Frank Guista’s Urasia was able to buy the rights to the Kazakh mines from Urasia London and Jeffcott……for $350 million!!!!

So who is Frank Guistra? He is the star of the show. Frank was well-known in the movie industry. He was the founder and CEO of the Canadian movie studio, Lion’s Gate. Giustra was also a huge philanthropist and financier and consultant of mostly mining ventures, through his company Endeavor Financial.

Frank+Giustra
Frank Giustra

 

He is a Canadian citizen which we will see becomes quite valuable in this saga. We will come back to Giustra later, but sticking to the timeline for now……we are in June of 2005. This is when Frank Giustra and Bill Clinton meet for the first time. Before Frank meets Bill, he already has in the works the Kazakh mining rights. He assembles a blue ribbon team to do the work of acquiring the Kazakh assets. From the publication “Llama”:
“The team included Phillip Shirvington, Ian Telfer, Robert Cross, Frank Holmes, Douglas Holtby, Dr. Massimo Carello, Canaccord Capital, BMO Nesbitt Burns, GMP Securities, Ltd., and Russian Sergey Kurzin.” 

Why I included this list is for only one reason: I recognized the last name on the list….Sergey Kurzin. He used to work for Mark Rich, and if you have read my piece on Rich, you would know that what Giustra is attempting, is exactly what Rich did in the 80s and 90s, and was the guy pardoned by Bill Clinton in 1999. You can read that account here. While his team was working, Giustra created a new company….Urasia Energy, Ltd. By any definition, it is a shell company as it has no sales or no assets. 3 months after meeting Bill Clinton, Giustra and Bill Clinton arrive in Kazakhstan on the same day in September of 2005. They reportedly meet with Mukhtar Dzhakishev who is still the head of Kazakh energy agency, Kazatomprom. But it has been revealed that a day later Bill and Frank met with Ablyazov who transferred the rights from his two shell companies, back through BTA to Giustra’s new company, Urasia Energy. Overnight Frank Giustra became one of the largest producers of uranium in the world. He pays $350 million to Ablyazov. And two months later in February of 2006, Giustra donates $31.2 million to the Clinton Foundation.

In my next segment, I will discuss how Uranium One came into existence and acquired 20% of America’s uranium reserves. For more details on this story go to the links below.

The Subversion of America

Is a force trying to take out the president?

 

For those of you that have read my work, you know how I hate to be considered a conspiracy nut. I report what I know to be true, and do plenty of research to back up my claims. But as I have said before, at times conclusions must be drawn, as no citizen has access to all the information needed to actually prove corruption.

Recently I had the opportunity to watch a YouTube program that featured a guest named Lee Stranahan.  Mr. Stranahan has quite a resume as a researcher and reporter. He worked for Breitbart News as an investigative reporter on three separate occasions. He’s worked for The Huffington Post and The Daily Kos. Currently a radio talk show host for the Russian funded radio network, Sputnik News. You can watch this program here:

stranahan

This program’s content seemed to meld perfectly with other research I have done in the past…..namely the Clinton Foundation’s connections to the CIA. If you have read my work on the Clinton Foundation, you would know I reluctantly reported sketchy connections between The CF, a company called Teneo, and the CIA. I won’t re-hash those connections, but you can read about them here: https://kengeorge.org/2016/11/05/into-the-weeds/. Why I say this, is because the more I got into researching one person, the deeper I got into what seems to be a major story. The program with Mr. Stranahan was exposing something he noticed during the Charlottesville protest clash. Apparently the rally by the white supremacists  was preceded by a “torch march”. Mr. Stranahan noticed that this was the exact same type of event that occurred during a protest march in the Ukraine, just before the coup that brought the government down. Now, to explain the entire reason for the Ukrainian coups would take a lot of time. But let me simplify it, because its important to understand that coup, to understand what went on in Charlottesville. Ukraine was making moves to become part of the EU. It was about to sign an agreement that would provide billions in aid, if certain reforms were agreed to. President Yanukovych was just about to sign the agreement when he changed his mind and instead agreed to a loan from Russia. When he refused to sign with the EU, protests began. They were orchestrated by The Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UIA) which is the strong arm of the Svoboda political party. At the same time the protesters were performing these torch marches, they were chanting the phrase “blood and soil” while carrying the red and black flags of the UIA. The UIA is an extreme nationalist organization that has been likened to the NAZI Party. You can read more about the Ukrainian revolution here: Ukrainian revolution. This revolution was in February of 2014…..note that.

mcmullin 2
Evan McMullin

 

A name popped up during this study that you might be familiar with: Evan McMullin. If you don’t remember, he was a candidate for president during the 2016 presidential primaries. But he was also a former clandestine operations agent for the CIA from 1999 to 2010. He then went to work at Goldman Sachs as an “investment banker” at the same time that Dina Powell and Gary Cohn were there. He then became an advisor to the US House of Representatives. He did that from 2013 to 2015. Do you know what number is in between 2013 and 2015? McMullin was at Charlottesville on the day of the crash. BTW, Powell and Cohn are now at the White House working for Trump……Hmmmm, part of the Deep State?

DEEP STATE WARRIORS?

So what does the Ukrainian revolution have to do with Charlottesville?  I don’t know, exactly….but doesn’t it seem odd that the white supremacists were carrying torches, and….chanting “blood and soil” and…. carrying red and black flags? Yes, that’s true…the white supremacists were emulating the Ukrainian protestors from the UIA. Maybe its just a coincidence. After all the Svoboda party in Ukraine are Nazi sympathizers and supported by George Soros. Shouldn’t white supremacists be like NAZIs? But what if its not a coincidence?

John McCain and Lindsey Graham, the two republican establishment hawks, went to Ukraine and met with leaders of the Svoboda Party and UIA. Evan McMullin spoke to their group. But this is a small part of the story. Another coincidence……this one can barely be believed. The one man that actually was literally in the right place at the right time recording the crash, the car, and its escape, in Charlottesville became an instant media darling at CNN. The day he made the video of the crash, it had barely been uploaded on social media, when CNN found him and interviewed him immediately after the crash. But that’s not the coincidence. His name was Brennan Gilmore. He was the Chief operations officer in the Central African Republic (CAR) in 2012, for the CIA. He was there during a bloody war pitting Christians against Muslims. We were on the Muslim’s side….we lost and Gilmore had to leave the CAR. He also worked for the failed democrat candidate for governor of Virginia, in 2016, Tom Pereillo. Not highly unusual that a CIA operative works for a campaign….no!…not at all! But the campaign did receive $375,000 from George Soros. That’s kind of strange. But it sure seems odd that a CIA agent finds himself in Charlottesville on the day that a violent clash occurs between white nationalists and ANTIFA, and just happens to be in the one spot where he can film it all, and immediately get on CNN, and another CIA agent is there to speak.

jason kessler
Jason Kessler

The final piece to the puzzle was where I started the research. The man that organized this rally. His name is Jason Kessler…..it has been reported that he is a white supremacist and a right wing extremist. But what’s really odd, is I spent two whole days trying to find out about him. Just like a dozen other people that were trying, very little is known about him before April of 2016.  I was able to find some interesting information prior to that date that speaks volumes. The first thing was tweets he made in 2015. Can you imagine a white supremacist being for gun control?

 

jk-gun-control-2

Then I found that he curiously supported Obama….now that seems really odd for a white supremacist.

 

jk-obama-1

And he had no use for republicans in 2012:
jk-hates-republicans

When questioned about this, he claimed he was “redpilled” by the media during the Baltimore riots. But its curious that with all his rants on Twitter…almost 5000 tweets….not one tweet or Facebook post about Baltimore except this one.JK-Red-Pilled

He is either the worst white supremacist of all time or he’s never been one. You’ll have to be the judge.

Now add all these coincidences to one other piece of information. As I said above, in January of this year (2017) John McCain and Lindsey Graham, our two favorite corrupt hawks, traveled to Ukraine to meet with the Svoboda Party officials (the Nazis) to encourage them to fight Russia. They then came back and promoted giving offensive weapons to Ukraine so they could attack Russian positions.

John+McCain+Lindsey+Graham+UqgliqUJBizm
Interesting photo of McCain and Graham meeting with Obama and Rice, discussing Syria strategy. Doesn’t it seem like there should be a general in that meeting? Just sayin’

 

I only mention this to ask this question. How many operatives do you think we have over there right now? We wonder why Russia is our enemy. We complain when they meddle in our business, when we openly want to attack them and take over a country literally on their doorstep. But this isn’t about Russia…this is about the deep state and the US government, actually conducting an action to heighten tensions between the races, by causing a violent protest to turn ugly. That’s right….I said it! As Mark Levin often states.  Factions in the US government actively working to subvert a legally elected president. THIS IS TREASON! But no one has to worry, those doing it, completely control law enforcement and the courts. It would appear, the entire episode, was orchestrated by the CIA, with the help of CNN, George Soros, The Mayor, Michael Signer, and ANTIFA. Whether the white nationalists knew they were being used is unknown….but to think our own government is doing these things is disgusting. We, as Americans, have a pretty noble opinion of America and the things we’ve accomplished as a nation. Are we being naïve? Do our adversaries see us for who we are? We stick our nose in everybody’s business, even when its not even close to being in our interest.  Today, September 20th, 2017. President Trump said at the UN the exact opposite of this behavior. This is why the CIA and the deep state is working so hard to thwart Trump, delay Trump, and in general, discredit him, and get him out of office as soon as possible.  If you thought 2016 was tough…wait until 2020.

Lamentations of a Conservative

Why there will be a revolution

madteaparty_700

After watching and listening to fellow conservatives over the past several weeks, I felt compelled to analyze what I’ve been hearing.

We all wanted change! Some of us didn’t like Trump, but we wanted and hoped he would do what was right. He has. Many of the NeverTrumpers came around, but a few hang in there, looking for every opportunity to find defects in the man and in his policies. But these folks are a minority in the populist movement that has swept across America.

There is no longer any doubt that the populist sentiment and America first attitude of the vast majority of Americans is not shared by our congressional leaders, dozens of governors, or the republican party itself. One must ask the question why? If they “represent” the people, then why do they work against what the people want? So many interpret what they see as ideology, principles, or some sort of RINOism. Could they actually believe that what they are doing is serving a constituency that they need to get re-elected? How can that be possible? Trump won by defeating 16 other republicans…..none of whom were touting a populist message.  Could it be that they believe the right thing is to keep going down the path we’re on? What average citizen does that benefit other than the ones taking from the system? Do they know that? Or are they possibly so entrenched in the status quo, that they can’t grasp what change looks like? That is very doubtful….these guys just aren’t that stupid. So what is the reason?

I have looked long and hard at that question. Have spent countless hours researching, and analyzed countless data. There is only one possible answer to that question. CORRUPTION!  We, in America, have always taken great pride in our system of government….our constitution, our system of checks and balances, our respect for law, and our democratic republic.  But while we were sleeping, that system has been destroyed. Our governments have become as corrupt as any third world dictatorship. We. the people, are being lied to and fleeced of our wealth and freedom, given just enough of both to keep believing in the usefulness of those very governments.

I say these things with a broken heart. Few have fought as hard as I have, to shape government in the form that I understand from years of reading  history,  being active in politics, and supporting those people who said they would do the right thing. I now realize that all of it was for nothing. The level of corruption is so virulent, that it is beyond repair. There is no over-riding mechanism that can reverse the decay. No honest people who will step up and challenge those in power. Trump was and is our last hope. But after 6 months, it seems doubtful that even he can get past the obstacle of congress and the corrupt corporate world they represent.

For me, this culminated in the Obamacare debates, plans, and bills presented by congress.  It would have been the easiest thing to do…simply repeal the ACA, and work on something else over the next few years. Why didn’t it get done? Let me give you some facts:

The healthcare industry donated $72 million to the RNC alone, in 2016.  The profits in the healthcare industry in 2013….before the ACA was fully implemented….were 8 billion dollars. In 2015, those same profits, just two years later, were 15 billion dollars. Over that same period, stock prices, in general, for the healthcare industry were up 59%.  In a study of the top 7 hospitals in America, revenue was up 15% from 2014 to 2015 and unpaid care was down 35% over the same period….all of it due to Medicaid expansion.
walmart
Now….couple those facts, to the actions of the GOP congress’ actions.  Are they telling us the truth? Is it really a difference in policy ideas? Is it just the way congress works? Is it like McConnell says…..”it just takes time” ? You’d have to be an idiot to believe any of that.  But set aside the money for a minute. Rather

McConnell says: “It takes time…”

than believing they do it for campaign donations, could there be another, more onerous agenda at hand? I think so.  You see, Trump is a threat to the plan, that they have colluded with corporate America to put in place. The ACA was meant to change the way Insurance is paid for. The ultimate goal was to take the burden of insurance off of corporations and place it squarely at the feet of the people. Whether its buying it as an individual by force of law, or to have government pay all the bills, is irrelevant….the goal is to remove it as a benefit provided by corporate America. Everything congress is and will do is to benefit large, multi-national corporations. But why? Why serve a few wealthy CEOs at the expense of millions of Americans? The bigger picture is globalism. In order to secure a safe and secure world market, the playing field in America has to be equivalent to that in Denmark, India, or Bangladesh.  And that includes relieving the corporate world of healthcare costs. There can no longer be any doubt, that globalism is the enemy of the American people, and our congress has been colluding with that enemy for over 25 years. It is the plan and will continue to be the plan for as far as the eye can see. Sadly, recent events, demonstrate there is no relief coming.

Now, let me change gears for a minute, and talk about what happened in Charlottesville, VA, over the weekend of August 12th. Well…..it finaly happened. The right has done the unthinkable…..it acted violently, and with hate. At least this is what all of us are being told.  Yesterday, I gave an opinion on social media that I thought was accurate and astute. That opinion acknowledged the vile act, but pointed to its inevitability in light of years of the left pushing racism down our throats, making political correctness an accepted religion, and accepting the notion that blacks and Hispanics have been so discriminated against, that all white people owe them something to make up for the hate in our hearts. Now they have something to point to, that proves beyond all doubt, that white people are hateful racists and want all people of color gone or dead.  The debaters attacking me, had such sorrowful attitudes. Their guilt was palpable. This man’s hate was in all of us, and we need to change our hearts.  I can say with all honesty, that the inevitability of this one man’s actions was not so much as inevitable as it was predictable.  Soros and his minions have spent  billions to foment a radical leftist crew that push and push and push. Up to the point of this dasterdly deed, there have been surprisingly few reprisals from the right.  A punch here or a fight there, but no loss of life, or egregious acts of violence.  Have you ever seen what happens when you dump a lump of sodium in water? Its a quite violent reation.  Its the same when you place white racists in close proximity with black racists. The reaction becomes quite violent. Why these groups were allowed to intermingle is odd.  I smell a rat. Soros funded leftist anarchists were there in force. They have been seeking this confrontation for some time. Up to that moment, the right had resisted the urge to fight back…..but this group of white people was not the run of the mill conservative group. They would fight back.

So, you ask, what does this have to do with corruption and globalism? Alot!  You see, it is a wonderful thing when the interests of the useful idiots coincide with the interests of the globalists. The globalists in the corporate world have adapted from a strategy of fighting big government to create a freer global economy, to working with big government to achieve the same ends. They have found that when a $72 million dollar investment can return $7 billion in profits, that’s a good investment. (its 1% by the way) But its not just the healthcare industry……its pretty much every corporate interest in the world. They all invest millions and billions to boost profits and stock prices, by greasing the skids of lawmakers, as we drive to globalism.  It works like this: Despite 25 years of this push toward globalism, America still has a remnant of a working middle class. This is where the money must come from. The middle class must give up there money to buy their products and services and it must continue to fund government. This can only last as long as the middle class exists. Once the middle has been drained of its wealth and its jobs, the strategy will change. Corporate America, for years have been positioning itself for when that time comes. A society like many countries deal with everyday. One where poor people still buy, but the price must be low. No problem. There is always a place where labor is cheap and regulations are non-existant. We will always be a market for cheap stuff,  but using profits to pay the high price of American labor, simply to maintain a middle class, just doesn’t work for corporate America. The formula is working and our leaders are active players in the plan.

 

But I digress. Trump is a threat to the globalist agenda. Make no mistake who is pulling the strings. We’d like to believe that George Soros and Ted Cruz are polar opposites. But are they? Maybe for different reasons, but they both believe strongly, that globalism is good for the world, and for America.  There is no place for Trump…or us….in the political arena. The right and the left both want globalism in some form.  To be clear…trade is not globalism.  Trade happens when two parties exchange goods or services, to the BENEFIT of both parties. When $700 billion in wealth leaves America each year, that’s not trade…that’s globalism!  Globalism is wealth redistribution from our middle class to foreign nations and to government.

The actions in Charlottesville are just more attempts to end the Trump threat. The evidence, although anecdotal, are my friends on social media, feigning white guilt, and lamenting the actions of one nut job and a group of radicals, questioning our very heart, as we try to hang on. There will be more of this until we finally end the corruption in government and stop the corporations from pushing us into globalism.

Finally, I would love to advise that we resist the temptation to violence….but I can’t.  There will come a time when one incident like this leads to mass death providing a spark for a revolt. Someone or some group will retalliate, and it will  begin. Unless congress comes to its senses and exposes the corruption we are headed for revolution.
