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.

 

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.

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.

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:

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 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

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.

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-ryland-cropped
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.

Corrution? Government or Corporations?

Who’s to blame?

Disclaimer: this piece is my opinion, based on my business acumen and years of experience observing politics.

Below I have proven beyond any doubt that the Clinton Foundation and all its cohorts are a corrupt criminal enterprise. I have also provided information revealing firm links between the Foundation and the political establishment and the CIA. This latter point leaves room for debate, but the corruption can leave no doubt.

Over the years, I have had hundreds of debates whether corruption is the fault of government or the fault of corporate America. Those on the left believe the solution is more government power and regulation to counter the corporate corruption.  Laws like Dodd/Frank, ACA, and so many others, reveal this desire for more control and more power to regulate. I believe corporate corruption cannot exist without government assistance and a desire to aquiesce to their needs. With less power and less regulation and less money to spend, government could not do the favors they do for corporate America.

So what’s behind the connections between the Clinton Foundation, Dow, Boieng, Humana, Coke, and the others that have given millions to the Clintons for favors? Corporations are in the business to make money….as much money as they can make. It is not only their business, it is their fuduciary responsibilty to do so. If a corrupt government official will take money in return for consideration, a law, or a favor, they will spend the money. If the government official will not take the money, they will have to work much harder to compete, make better products, or provide services that sell. That’s the old fashion way, but the way all of us expect should be used. Using government to help you make money, is much, much easier. The point is, they will do whatever it takes to make money….they will play in any system that allows them to make money, and they are more than willing to spend millions if it will return billions.

Andrew Liveris, CEO Dow Chemical

Now I want to talk about an interview I saw recently with Andrew Liveris, the CEO of Dow Chemical. Liveris was one of my subjects in the posts below,  INTO THE WEEDS 8. There, I discussed Dow’s use of the Exp/Imp bank to fund a $20 billion dollar chemical plant in Saudi Arabia, and how the approval of a $5 million loan from the taxpayers was acheived through e-mails with the directors at the Exp/Imp Bank with promises of jobs at the foundations right arm, Teneo. Liveris was a staunch defender of Clinton for president and Dow contributed millions to the foundation. Dow also contribbuted to her campaign, and spoke publically against Trump. Building a plant on this scale in a foreign country, requires state department approval, and Hillary Clinton was SOS at the time. It would seem the whole episode came at a price. That’s how “pay for play” works. You can read the details here at my blog: https://kengeorge.org/2016/11/21/into-the-weeds-8/

Back to the interview. Liveris was just leaving a meeting he had at the White House with other business leaders, and Donald Trump, on February 20th. Reportedly, the business leaders talked about the reforms Trump was placing on regulation, his tax reform plan, the border tax, and the repatriozation of 2 trillion dollars of foreign profits. When Liveris was interviewed, he praised Trump and supported every single point in his plan. After hearing what he had to say, I thought he was a “Get on the Train” Trump supporter. He couldn’t have been more complimentary or supportive. It was absolutely striking! You see, my premise was that Corporations want to make money however they can. They will do what it takes. Because Clinton lost, they now have to change direction. They have to work with whomever is in power to make as much money as they can, and Trump is now in power…they’ll have to do it the old fashion way, which is going to be good for America.

Deal of the Century

Who really has ties to Russia?

air-tractor-at-802u-airtruck-logo.pngYesterday, I saw a story from one of my close FB friends about a weapons sale to Kenya, signed on January 19th…..Obama’s last day in office. The story is attached and outlines a request for a congressional investigation. On its face, it seems like an innocuous story about only 14 planes,  weaponized to fight Al-Shabab. It further talks about who got the contract and who didn’t. It states a company called L3 Technologies received this contract. The contract became a no bid contract and a company that has a lot of past experience with these planes claim they could be made for half the price. Regardless, the contract was issued to L3 Technologies for 418 million dollars. The funny thing is, not only is L3 double the price, they have never made a plane, let alone one like this. So I began to wonder just what was going on.

Well, I looked into L3 Technologies. I thought I had heard the name before in other research. I was right. L3 Technologies is formerly L3 Communications. One of their 11 directors is Peter Cohen. Mr. Cohen is also the founder and CEO of the Cowen Group. From Wilkepedia:

“Cowen Group Inc. is a diversified financial services firm that provides alternative investment management, investment banking, research, and sales and trading services through its two business segments: Ramius, LLC, a global alternative investment management business, and Cowen and Company, LLC, a broker-dealer business”

Now the Cowen Group has been around quite awhile. The Vice-Chairman of the Cowen Group is Stelios Papandopolus. Papandopolus is also on the board of Joule Unlimited along with Reuban Vardanyan, a close friend of Vladimir Putin. Why is this important? I recently wrote an expose on my blog about Joule. (included at the bottom) This is the company that Russia invested $35 million in to work against our fracking industry. Vardanyan is also the founder of Skolkovo…..the venture acquiring American technology from more than a dozen of our biggest tech firms…..ALL contributing to the Clinton Foundation to the tune of $20 million.

So what do think? Do I have to write more? OK…….A mature American company, with experience, is not considered for a military contract for weaponized planes in Kenya. Instead, a company, with no experience, gets a contract for twice the market price. Coincidently, directors of that company are also directors and officers of a Russian financed business, that John Podesta was a director and held 75,000 shares of stock, that he did not disclose.

Just how much more evidence does the justice department or the FBI need? Folks I’m telling you….I can’t look into a story that doesn’t have the Clintons somewhere in it. The corruption, cronyism, illegality, and down right treason is rampant. It truly is a swamp….and I hope someday, we will see an end to this corruption. One can only hope.
