Brazile Fallout: Hillary Privatized the DNC with Help from a Washington Law Firm

0

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall St On Parade:

Secret side agreements are a common maneuver by corporate law firms. Here’s how they work. An agreement that is legal and passes the smell test is drafted and submitted to a court or a regulatory body for public consumption. Then, a separate, secret side agreement is written and signed by both sides and it contains all of the smelly, shady, ethically questionable hard details on how the original agreement will be carried out.

Donna Brazile, the former interim Chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) during the 2016 presidential campaign, has written a new book, “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House,”and has revealed the secret side agreement that the DNC had with Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

In 2015, Hillary Clinton’s campaign set up a joint fundraising committee called the Hillary Victory Fund (HVF) with the DNC and over 30 state democratic committees. The public portion of the agreement indicated that Hillary would raise funds for her own campaign while also allocating a portion to the DNC to help the overall Democratic Party as well as allocating funds to state democratic committees in order to support down-ballot candidates in their local elections. But the secret side agreement that effectively privatized the DNC, giving Hillary and her campaign lawyers control of the DNC and its money, had yet to see the light of day.

This is how Brazile describes the secret side agreement in her book:

“The agreement—signed by Amy Dacey, the former CEO of the DNC, and Robby Mook [Clinton’s campaign manager] with a copy to Marc Elias [lawyer at Perkins Coie]  — specified that in exchange for raising money and investing in the DNC, Hillary would control the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised. Her campaign had the right of refusal of who would be the party communications director, and it would make final decisions on all the other staff. The DNC also was required to consult with the campaign about all other staffing, budgeting, data, analytics, and mailings.”

The Clinton camp has now attempted to defend itself by saying these terms are standard because they were not going to kick in until the Democratic Party had chosen its official presidential nominee at its party convention in July 2016. But that’s not what the actual secret side agreement says. It indicates the following: “Beginning October 1, 2015,” the HVF would begin transferring $1.2 million to the DNC at the start of each month with that release “conditioned on” Hillary Clinton’s primary campaign personnel being consulted “and have joint authority over strategic decisions over the staffing, budget, expenditures, and general election related communications, data, technology, analytics, and research. The DNC will provide HFA advance opportunity to review on-line or mass email, communications that features a particular Democratic primary candidate.”

Additionally, the secret agreement states that “the DNC agrees that no later than September 11, 2015 it will hire one of two candidates previously identified as acceptable to HFA” (Hillary for America, the primary campaign fund for Clinton) as its Communications Director. All of this is occurring in the fall of 2015 with the official Democratic nominating convention not taking place until July 2016.

As Politico reported in May 2016, the Hillary Victory Fund was a sham in multiple other ways. First, Politico writes that less than 1 percent of the money raised stayed in the state’s coffers. The Treasurer of the Hillary Victory Fund actually had the power to move money in and out of state committee bank accounts. Politico reporters Ken Vogel and Isaac Arnsdorf cite the following example to show how things actually worked:

“…the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party received $43,500 from the victory fund on Nov. 2, only to transfer the same amount to the DNC that same day. The pattern repeated itself after the Minnesota party received transfers from the victory fund of $20,600 on Dec. 1 (the party sent the same amount to the DNC the next day) and $150,000 on Jan. 4 (it transferred the same amount to the DNC that day).

“That means that Minnesota’s net gain from its participation in the victory fund was precisely $0 through the end of March. Meanwhile, the DNC pocketed an extra $214,100 in cash routed through Minnesota — much of which the DNC wouldn’t have been able to accept directly, since it came from donors who had mostly had already maxed out to the national party committee.

“A similar pattern transpired with most of the participating state parties. As of March 31, only eight state parties (most of which were in battleground states such as Colorado, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire and Virginia) had received more from the victory fund than was transferred from their accounts to the DNC.”

Brazile backs up this account in her book, writing that “the states kept less than half of 1 percent of the $82 million they had amassed from the extravagant fund-raisers Hillary’s campaign was holding….”

Brazile notes in her book that the lawyer, Marc Elias, of the politically-connected law firm, Perkins Coie, was copied on the secret side agreement. Elias has repeatedly come under scrutiny for his multi-faceted roles in the 2015-2016 presidential campaign. Most recently, he was exposed as the guy behind the hiring of Fusion GPS which compiled the scandalous Russian dossier on Donald Trump, using both Hillary campaign funds and DNC funds. The Washington Post reported that Elias was allowed to spend these funds “without oversight by campaign officials, according to a spokesperson for his law firm.”

Elias served as the General Counsel to Hillary’s primary campaign committee, Hillary for America, as well as serving as one of a team of lawyers from Perkins Coie that provided legal advice to the DNC. (Elias also provided legal advice to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and Democratic Governors Associations, according to the Perkins Coie web site last year.)

As a legal adviser to the DNC, Elias should have known that its charter mandated fairness and impartiality to all primary candidates. But when WikiLeaks released emails last year that had been hacked at the DNC, Marc Elias was caught giving advice on how to tar Senator Bernie Sanders after his campaign suggested that the Hillary Victory Fund was skirting Federal election law. The email from Elias read:

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

The Saudi Purge and the Rothschild New World Order – Part 1

from End Times News Report:

With news of a purge taking place in Saudi Arabia, it is worth examining the Saudi connection to the Rothschild New World Order syndicate.

Intel Committee Demands Fusion GPS Bank Records; Suspects Journalists Paid To Spread “Russian Collusion” Claims

from Zero Hedge:

For nearly a year now we’ve all been inundated with 24×7 media coverage of the “Russian Collusion” narrative which suggests, among other things, that various members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russian operatives to obtain damaging information on Hillary Clinton and then used social media to spread that damaging information far and wide, thus causing Hillary’s inevitable second failed bid for the White House.

That said, what if it wasn’t the Trump administration, but rather the Hillary campaign and Democrats who were guilty of all the “Russian Collusion” crimes they’ve been screaming about for the better part of year now? 

Of course, we already know that it was Hillary’s campaign and the DNC that paid for the Trump dossier (see: Hillary Clinton Lied, Paid For “Trump Dossier”).  We also know that most of the sources listed in the dossier were based in Russia and include a “senior Kremlin official” as well as other “close associates of Vladimir Putin.” 

Moreover, as CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell noted recently, it’s highly likely that some portion of the funds paid to Perkins Coie by the DNC and Hillary campaign made it’s way into the pockets of those “senior Kremlin officials” as compensation for their services.

In the dossier, Steele cites numerous anonymous sources, many of which work in the upper echelons of the Russian government.

 

The first two sources cited in the dossier’s first memo, dated June 20, 2016, are “a senior Russian Foreign Ministry figure” and “a former top level Russian intelligence officer still active inside the Kremlin.”

 

A third source is referred to as “a senior Russian financial official.” Other sources in the dossier are described as “a senior Kremlin official” and sources close to Igor Sechin, the head of Russian oil giant Rosneft and a close associate of Vladimir Putin’s.

Now, according to a report from The Washington Times, Representative Devin Nunes, a California Republican and chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, seems to have reason to believe that Fusion GPS, and therefore Hillary and the DNC, may have paid journalists to spread the Russian collusion narrative which looks increasingly like nothing more than a cleverly crafted myth.

 

The role of reporters is taking on added importance in federal court battles over the infamous Russia dossier that leveled unverified charges of collusion against the Donald Trump campaign.

In U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Fusion GPS, the dossier’s financier via the Democratic Party and the Hillary Clinton campaign money, is fighting a House committee chairman’s bid to find out if the opposition research firm paid journalists.

Rep. Devin Nunes, California Republican and chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, signed a subpoena to force a bank to turn over Fusion’s financial records. He wants to know who paid for the dossier, which was written in a series of 18 memos by former British spy Christopher Steele. He relied almost exclusively on unidentified Kremlin sources.

Fusion went to federal court to block the move, but the law firm Perkins Coie LLP, whose partner Marc E. Elias is the Clinton’s campaign’s general counsel, intervened. It filed a letter acknowledging it had paid Fusion for the dossier on behalf of Democrats. Fusion and Mr. Nunes then worked out an agreement on access to some of the firm’s financial records.

But the dispute heightened again Friday as Fusion renewed its request for a judge to block the subpoena because Mr. Nunes wants more information. The widened net includes the names of journalists and law firms that Fusion might have paid.

Twitter Revises Terms Of Service, No Longer Believes In “Speaking Truth To Power”

0

from ZeroHedge:

Having been caught in a crossfire over internet free speech and Russian conspiracy theories, Twitter has quietly made a significant change in its stated “Twitter Rules” terms of service.

Following several Congressional hearings meant to root out “Russian interference” by Twitter accounts, as well as an incident in which a disgruntled, now former employee, disabled Donald Trump’s twitter account for 11 minutes, it appears that Twitter no longer believes in “speaking truth to power.”

The change can be seen in Twitter’s TOS, in the “Abusive Behavior” section, which currently states that “We believe in freedom of expression and open dialogue, but that means little as an underlying philosophy if voices are silenced because people are afraid to speak up.”

This is a material change from what this section stated as recently as November 2, when the section read “We believe in freedom of expression and in speaking truth to power”…

… with believing in “speaking truth to power” replaced with “open dialogue.

The change took place just two days after November 1, when Twitter, along with Google and Facebook, were questioned by Congress in the ongoing witch-hunt, as dubbed by Donald Trump, for “Russian influence” that may have led to interference in the 2016 presidential election. As @Jack twitted at the time, the changes to Twitter’s rules were made as part of a November 3 attempt to “clarify” them.

In a statement, the company said that it wanted to make it clear that “context is crucial when evaluating abusive behavior and determining appropriate enforcement actions.”

In its testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee, Twitter unveiled that it used a vast array of tenuous criteria to define accounts as “Russia-linked,” and also admitted it had censored the hashtags #PodestaEmails and #DNCLeaks tweets during the 2016 US presidential election campaign in an effort to limit public exposure to leaked documents describing the Democratic National Committee’s efforts to boost Clinton as the Democratic Party’s  preferred candidate during the primaries, a process which was subsequently defined as rigged by none other than Elizabeth Warren following blockbuster claims by interim DNC chair Donna Brazile. Twitter Associate General Counsel Sean Edgett claimed many of those tweets were “automated” and hidden by anti-spam systems. He also admitted that less than 4 percent of them came from potential “Russian-linked” accounts.

GAME OVER: AFTER MONTHS OF RELENTLESS AIR STRIKES BY PRESIDENT TRUMP, THE ISIS CALIPHATE IN SYRIA FALLS

0

by Geoffrey Grider, Now The End Begins:

The U.S. State Department revealed to reporters in August that territorial losses suffered by ISIS have “dramatically accelerated” under U.S. President Donald Trump from the 35,000 square miles the jihadist group is believed to have controlled at its peak in Iraq and Syria in early 2015 to only 8,000, marking an 80 percent loss. With the recent victories, ISIS has lost about 90 percent of its “caliphate,” reveals the Telegraph.

THE END OF THE SO-CALLED ISLAMIC STATE (ISIS/ISIL) CALIPHATE THAT ONCE EXPANDED ACROSS VAST SWATHES OF TWO COUNTRIES IS WITHIN REACH NOW THAT THE JIHADISTS LOST THE LAST-REMAINING CITY UNDER THEIR CONTROL IN SYRIA AND ITS FINAL STRONGHOLD IN IRAQ ALONG THE BORDER.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Ever since Obama called ISIS the “JV Team”, the Islamic State terror group’s rise to power has seemed unstoppable. Obama’s phony airstrikes that targeted mostly empty buildings did nothing to slow them down. But 11 months of actual airstrikes ordered by President Trump seems to have turned the tide. Last month ISIS was driven out of Iraq, and today we see that their caliphate in Syria has now fallen. What has happened to ISIS is exactly what Trump said would happen with him as president. Another promise kept. So go ahead, fake news media, hate Trump all you like, it’s a free country. Just don’t forget to also say “thank you”.

“Frankly the tempo of our operations is going to reduce as Daesh [ISIS] are beaten in Iraq and in Syria,” conceded Air Commander Johnny Stringer in charge of Britain’s contribution to U.S.-led air coalition against the Islamic State, reports the Telegraph.

The ISIS so-called caliphate had “all but disappeared,” declared the commander. However, he indicated that “it was now likely to morph into an insurgent organization.”

On Friday, Iraqi military forces, backed by U.S.-led coalition air power and Iran-allied Shiite militias, led the offensive to defeat ISIS in al-Qaim, described by the Daily Mail as the last bastion in Iraq near its border with Syria.

Meanwhile, forces loyal to Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, assisted by Iran-backed Shiite militias and Russian air support, pushed ISIS out of Deir Ezzor on the Syrian side of the international boundary.

CAN TRUMP FOLLOW THROUGH ON ISIS PROMISES?

The fake news media mocked Trump during the 2016 campaign for making promises that he would “completely destroy them” if elected president. But guess what? That’s exactly what happened. 

ISIS’S SO-CALLED “CALIPHATE” WAS DEPLETED TO RUINS AFTER THE JIHADIST GROUP WAS FORCED OUT OF ITS REMAINING STRONGHOLDS IN IRAQ AND SYRIA—MOST RECENTLY AL-QAIM AND DEIR EZZOR, RESPECTIVELY, NOTES DAILY MAIL.

Echoing other analysts, Maha Hosain Aziz, an expert from New York University, cautionedthat as it feels its defeat closing in, ISIS will change tactics and may even try to join forces with other jihadists, including its alleged enemy al-Qaeda.

“Look for more coordination between ISIL and al-Qaeda outside, and inside Syria and Iraq, despite their ongoing friction in other areas such as Yemen,” Aziz told the Telegraph, adding, “ISIS will also continue to expand its recruitment pool worldwide to prepare for its long-term goal of forming a global Islamic caliphate.”

The Dam Is Breaking On Hillary Clinton- Mass Saudi Arrests In Corruption Crackdown & Discovery Of Two New Sealed Indictments

0

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

Some huge news coming out this weekend, which ties directly into what may be the biggest scandal yet to hit Hillary and Bill Clinton directly on the heels of three major scandals in the last three weeks alone, including the Uranium One revelations, the funding of the Kremlin disinformation campaign dubbed the “Trump dossier,” and former interim DNC chair, Donana Brazile’s recent bombshells on how the Clinton campaign took over the DNC before the primaries, rigging the process in a manner that Clinton was “selected” as the Democratic nominee.

In ANP’s most recent article about the three “watergate-level scandals” engulfing Hillary Clinton right now, we highlighted how many people were wondering if the reason everyone seems to be throwing her under the bus was that more was coming, something bigger and worse than what has been revealed over the last few weeks.

We may have the answer to what that is.

THE SAUDI ARABIA ARRESTS AND THE CLINTON CONNECTIONS

On Saturday news from Saudi Arabia dominated headlines when a huge anti-corruption crackdown occurred, netting the ouster  and detainment of dozens of ministers, Princes and former government officials, including Saudi Arabia’s Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, who is known as the “de-facto public face of Saudi finance,” and has heavily invested in U.S. corporate giants like Citigroup, Apple, 21stCentury Fox and Twitter.

While unrelated as far as we know, it does bear mentioning that Bin Talal also owns the Four Seasons, the four highest floors of Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas, where the recent mass shooting occurred.

While many are highlighting how Alwaleed publicly slammed President Trump during the election cycle, what isn’t be discussed at length in the mainstream media is the direct connections between the Podesta Group, Hillary Clinton and the Saudis, which was detailed back in 2016, nor the connections between Prince Alwaweed Bin Talal and Clinton’s former top aide, Huma Abedin.

Breitbart detailed Huma Abedin’s connections back in February 2016:
 

According to the official website of Prince Alaweed, one of the members of the Supreme Advisory board for his Al-Resalah TV network is “Dr. Abdullah Naseef, President of World Muslim Congress and President of Forum For Social Studies (FFSS).”

As Breitbart News has extensively documented, Al-Resalah TV board member Dr. Naseef is the longtime benefactor of top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s family business, the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs.

Connections between the Podesta Group and the Clinton campaign were revealed by none other than HuffPost back in August 2016:
 

If I told you that Democratic Party lobbyist Tony Podesta, whose brother John Podesta chairs Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, is a registered foreign agent on the Saudi government’s payroll, you’d probably think I was a Trump-thumping, conspiratorial nutcase. But it’s true.

The lobby firm created by both Tony and John Podesta in 1988 receives $140,000 a month from the Saudi government, a government that beheads nonviolent dissidents, uses torture to extract forced confessions, doesn’t allow women to drive, and bombs schools, hospitals and residential neighborhoods in neighboring Yemen.

The Podesta Group’s March 2016 filing, required under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938, shows that Tony Podesta himself oversees the Saudi account. At the same time, Tony Podesta is also a top campaign contributor and bundler for Hillary Clinton. So while one brother runs the campaign, the other brother funds it with earnings that come, in part, from the Saudis.

It is also noteworthy that the “Saudi regime by itself has donated between $10 million and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation, with donations coming as late as 2014, as she prepared her presidential run,” as reported by the Intercept in August 2016.

The connections are undeniable and we now know, from multiple reports that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Tony Podesta, among others as he goes after “lobbyists who violated lobbying laws, or worked as foreign agents without properly registering it with the Justice Department..”

It’s Been A Spectacularly Bad Month For Hillary Clinton: Here’s Why

0

by Elizabeth Vos, Disobedient Media:

It’s been an epically bad month for Hillary Clinton, with many of her closest supporters either heavily damaged in the public eye, or very publicly turning on the failed former Presidential candidate.

First it was the tidal wave of allegations against Hollywood’s Harvey Weinstein. Disobedient Media thoroughly reported Weinstein’s many ties to the Democratic Party establishment and the Clintons.

Then it was Kevin Spacey, another Clinton insider and Hollywood insider who Disobedient Media reported has been accused of sexually assaulting a number of men, including two who were adolescents at the time. One has accused Spacey of attempted rape when the actor was 14. Since Disobedient Media covered this story, it has emerged that Spacey was has been suspended from House Of Cards, after workers for the show alleged Spacey had sexually harassed crew members ‘routinely.’

Disobedient Media also reported that Spacey was documented to have travelled with Bill Clinton and convicted sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein on the infamous ‘Lolita Express’ flights. Epstein was eventually jailed for soliciting girls as young as 14 for prostitution

In an even more bizarre twist, a hedge fund manager for mega wealthy banker George Soros was reported to have “lured women to a sex dungeon,” where multiple women claim he then raped and severely beat them.

The Daily Beast wrote: “Three Florida women, filing under pseudonyms, have accused 62-year-old Howard Rubin of leading an organized human-trafficking ring in which he allegedly employed women to lure models to his $8 million Manhattan Penthouse… he led them into a sex-dungeon where he subjected them to sexual assault, rape, false imprisonment, and beatings so severe they would lose consciousness and one had to undergo reconstructive surgery to repair her breasts.”

George Soros, for whom Rubin worked as a portfolio manager, was reported by the Wall Street Journal to have lost up to $1 billion “as a result of the stock-market rally spurred by Donald Trump’s surprise presidential election.” Soros was reported to have donated $9 million to pro-Clinton SuperPACs during the campaign season. Soros’ various charitable groups have additionally donated millions to the Clinton Foundation.

The revelations began with Hollywood, but did not end there. First there was bombshell news regarding Uranium One, indicating that Clinton’s former campaign Chief of Staff’s brother Tony Podesta is now under investigation by Robert Mueller. Press reports indicate that Tony Podesta left his lobbying firm The Podesta Group as a result of the ongoing investigation.

Additionally, it has been revealed that Clinton’s campaign was responsible for payments to Fusion GPS in order to produce the infamous dossier that accused Trump of bizarre sexual acts last year, which has been widely regarded as a hoax. The Hill reports that former FBI Director James Comey called the dossier “salacious and unverified” in testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Despite this, Reuters reports that the dossier was central to investigations by a special counsel and congressional committees into U.S. intelligence agency allegations that Russia tried to help Trump’s campaign. This raises serious questions regarding the origin of such investigations, given the fact that Clinton’s campaign sponsored the creation of the document.

The disastrous series of events for Hillary Clinton did not end there. Her former ally Donna Brazile stunned the public when she outright stated via Politico that the DNC had rigged the Democratic Primary last year against the candidacy of Bernie Sanders. Brazile stated: “Debbie was not a good manager. She hadn’t been very interested in controlling the party—she let Clinton’s headquarters in Brooklyn do as it desired… How much control Brooklyn had and for how long was still something I had been trying to uncover for the last few weeks. By September 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart. ”

TRUMP ERA: SAUDI PURGE SIGNALS DEATH OF BUSH/CLINTON GLOBALISM

by Jamie White, Infowars:

The old guard globalist world order is collapsing, starting with the Clintons

The Clinton and Bush era of the last 30 years is about to come to an end in light of the sudden Saudi Arabian purge of Clinton and Bush allies.

Brazile’s book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House” contains several bombshells, including that Hillary Clinton did in fact rig the 2016 primary against Bernie Sanders, and that Brazile felt like a “slave” who feared for her life following the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.

“That means that Brazile knew Rich had been murdered for political purposes,” says insider Roger Stone, adding that Julian Assange of WikiLeaks confirmed his sources were not Russian, and were in “great physical danger.”

Brazile is the first prominent Democrat to turn on Clinton in what appears to be a sacrifice by the establishment, as Clinton’s self-centered behavior no longer serves their interests, and they need to make the persecution of Trump seem less politically motivated.

Brazile even pointed out that Bernie was more popular than Clinton, saying: “I did not trust the polls. I told [Sanders] I had visited states around the country and I found a lack of enthusiasm for her everywhere.”

The accurate coverage of the Uranium One scandal by the mainstream media is another indicator that the establishment is ready to dump Clinton.

Another significant development tied to Clinton’s downfall is the sudden purge of corrupt royalty in Saudi Arabia by King Salman, including ten princes and 38 senior cabinet members.

It’s worth noting that Saudi Arabia accounted for 20{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of the Clinton campaign’s funding in 2016.

Among the royals arrested was billionaire and Clinton Foundation donor Al-Waleed bin Talal, best known for picking a fight with Trump on Twitter during the 2016 Presidential Election.

Trump, being a counterpuncher, hit back in kind.

It’s also well-known that the Bush and Clinton family are closely tied to each other, as W. Bush has referred to Bill Clinton as “a brother from another mother,” and they’ve worked together for years on initiatives like the Presidential Leadership Scholars program.

The Bush family has also had a close relationship with Saudi Arabia going back decades.

Former Saudi Ambassador Prince Bandar was known as “Bandar Bush” due to his longtime friendship with George W. Bush.

The former president even helped Bandar get out the U.S. days after 9/11.

Saudi Purge: Royal Arrests and Helicopter Crash Killing High Ranking Officials Shocks the World

by Aaron Kesel, Activist Post:

What is the probability that a helicopter crashes carrying Saudi Prince Mansour bin Muqrin, after the arrest of several other high-ranking officials of Saudi Arabia for corruption and money laundering charges, and after a missile is shot at its capital in less than 24 hours?

Earlier today, Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal was arrested, along with ten senior princes, and some 38 ministers, on orders from the new anti-corruption committee headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Less than 24 hours after the issuance of the arrests of at least 40 high-ranking officials a helicopter carrying another Saudi Prince, deputy governor of Saudi Arabia’s southern Asir province Mansour bin Muqrin, crashed in Yemen with 7 other high-ranking officials, Al-Arabiya reported.

A search of the crash site is underway, SaudiNews50 reported, posting a video of the ongoing recovery efforts. It is unknown what caused the horrific crash.

According to Al Arabiya, among the officials ousted or arrested are Moteib Bin Abdullah, Minister of the National Guard. Prince Khalid bin Ayyaf has been appointed as his replacement.

Even heads of the three main Saudi Arabian media were arrested –  “Alwalid Bin Talal (Rotana), Walid Al Brahim (MBC), Saleh Kamel (ART),”  Ali Hashem tweeted.

Uranium One: Previously Undiscovered FOIA Documents Could Be Game Changer in Investigation

by Pamela Geller, Freedom Outpost:

Once again, the media’s outright ignoring the left’s scandals — while all eyes are turned on the Republicans, digging under whatever rocks are available to tie President Donald Trump to nonexistent Russia collusion charges.

Now here comes a new report about the uranium story — the widely underreported uranium story — that sheds more dark light on the left.

An Internet researcher may have actually stumbled upon a hidden nugget within the whole Uranium Once-Hillary Clinton scandal that’s been dotting the FBI’s radar for some time now.

And the key?

It’s within a file that came to light via a Freedom of Information Act request.

The blog The Conservative Tree House has more:

Internet researcher Katica (Twitter GOPollAnalyst) may have found the hidden thread that unravels a much bigger story within the Uranium One-Clinton-FBI scandal.

In an otherwise innocuous FBI FOIA FILE Katica located a notice for preservation of documents sent by an FBI special agent to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission on August 28th, 2015. What is interesting about the preservation request(s) are the recipients, their attachment to CFIUS (Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States), and the timeline of events surrounding the agent’s notification.

The time-line here is very important as it might change the perception of exactly what the FBI was investigating as it relates to Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. Therefore a backdrop to understand content and context is important.

Up to now the general perception of the FBI’s involvement surrounding the Clinton emails has been against the backdrop of using a personal email server to conduct business, and the potential for unlawful transmission of classified data.

Additionally, the circumvention of official information technology protocols was the narrative most often discussed. The headlines were “Clinton used bad judgement” etc.

In essence, throughout 2015, 2016, 2017 the arguments, including FBI legal probes, were thought to center around “process“. However, Katica’s discovery re-frames that argument to focus on the subject matter “content” within the emails, and not the process.

Bear with me… The first notification of a Clinton email problem stemmed from the discovery that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used her personal email (and server) to conduct official government business. Those initial revelations were discovered around March of 2015. [New York Times, March 2nd]

Sometime around August 3rd, 2015, we discovered the FBI inquiry was actually a “criminal probe“. [USA Today August 4th] – [Washington Post August 3rd] – [New York Post, August 5th, 2015] The media reporting in early August of 2015 showed the FBI investigation was actually a criminal probe. The dates here are important.

The discovery by Katica shows that on August 28th, 2015, an FBI special agent sent a notification to preserve records to: •Nuclear Regulatory Commission; •The U.S. Dept. of Treasury; •Office of Director of National Intelligence (ODNI James Clapper); •The National Counter Terrorism Center; and the •U.S. Department of Energy (DoE).

Each of these agencies was intricately involved in the 2010 approval of the Uranium One deal. Indeed, each of these specific agencies is involved in the CFIUS approval process for the purchase within the Uranium One deal. Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State at the time.

Five Days later, on September 2nd, 2015, the FBI special agent sent another notification for preservation of records to the same agencies -beginning with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission- and adding: the National Security Agency (NSA – Admiral Mike Rogers) and the United States Secret Service (USSS).

The following day, on September 3rd, 2015, the FBI special agent submitted a supplemental notification for preservation of records to: •The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), •Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), and •The Department of Defense.

Taken in their totality those FBI special agent notifications now encompassed every member of the CFIUS group who “signed off” on approval of the Uranium One deal.

It would be intellectually dishonest not to see the very likely attachment of the special agent’s action. That is to say an FBI probe originating as an outcome of information retrieved in parallel to the timing of the “criminal probe” of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email use.

The sequence of events highlights a criminal probe starting [early August 2015], followed by notifications to the “Uranium One” CFIUS participants [late August 2015].

Don’t Be Fooled by Soros’ Great Deception-America and Trump Are In Grave Danger

0

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

George Soros is preparing to unleash holy hell on America. His so-called “Purple Revolution” is designed to produce a civil war and at the same time force Donald Trump from office.

The dreaded November 4th day of infamy has come and gone and we are still alive, we are still here. Today, on November 5th, we all are breathing a collective sigh of relief. The much dreaded Soros-led revolution against our country has come and gone and it has failed miserably. Antifa has become Antifail. The much anticipated nationwide protests, designed to remove Donald Trump from office has failed and failed miserably. The good guys have won and the bad guys have failed. The Independent Media has is rejoicing in America’s good fortune. For example, here are two reports from Breitbart and Infowars where they are proclaiming defeat for America’s 5th column forces.

From Breitbart:

“…the group behind this weekend’s multi-city Antifa rallies, claims to be “organizing millions of people to drive out the fascist Trump / Pence regime.” Actual turnout on the first day of their nationwide rallies was far lower.

The group, founded by Revolutionary Communist Party chairman Bob Avakian, took out a full-page ad in the New York Times to promote the rally, and has enjoyed free press in the national media in the past few days.

Despite the press attention, turnout was low at many of Refuse Fascism’s rallies, which were scheduled to take place in 20 U.S. cities. The exception appears to have been L.A, where local news reported that close to 2,000 protesters gathered.

There were no reports of violent incidents, although a woman accused of deliberately splashing her drink on a Trump supporter was reportedly arrested at the Refuse Fascism march in New York City.”

Infowars filed a report which indicated a similar dismal turnout with all the excitement of watching the paint dry on the wall.

Has Soros Lost the Ability to Launch Violent Protests In Which People Die and Governments Topple?

The question posed in the previous subtitle is ridiculous on its face. The recent deadly riots at Charlottesville stands as a case in point. Then why and how did the George Soros organization, Antifa, fail so badly in bringing people together for the purpose of destabilizing the country in such a manner that Trump would be deposed? The simple answer is that it is all part of the planned deception.

Do not make the mistake of discounting George Soros and his criminal enterprises consisting of social justice warriorsfrom carrying out their deeds of destructio. Don’t make the mistake in assuming that these groups have somehow lost their effectiveness. Soros’s organizations are effective because they employ successful battle plans. Their arsenal of mishief and mayhem consists of a combination of Rules for Radicals and the ancient teachings of Sun Tzu and The Art of War.

November 4th was an abject failure from a strategic point of view based on self-generated violence, violent deaths, raw numbers of participants and the promotion of regime change inside the United States. Before making the mistake of thinking that yesterday’s designed protest were a failure, please consider the following admonitions from Sun Tzu as published in The Art of War. Please note that these teachings form the backbone for teaching military strategy at the military academies. And I have found these historical admonitions to be useful in tracking and predicting Soros strategies which are designed to take down America.

Consider the following quotes from Sun Tzu which have proven applicable to past Soros-led acts of violence.

“Appear at points which the enemy must hasten to defend; march swiftly to places where you are not expected”

“You can be sure of succeeding in your attacks if you only attack places which are undefended.”

“The spot where we intend to fight must not be made known; for then the enemy will have to prepare against a possible attack at several different points.”

“Numerical weakness comes from having to prepare against possible attacks; numerical strength, from compelling our adversary to make these preparations against us.”

“Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.”

 

From the abovementioned quotes, I see the strategies behind the Vegas massacre, the “hands up don’t shoot” violence in the St. Louis area and the ISIS attack upon innocent and defenseless persons in Manhattan. These quotes also tell us what is coming next.

Antifa is definitely a force to be reckoned with, just ask the concert goers in Las Vegas. However, I repeatedly warned that November 4th would likely be a dud and as I said, nobody in their right mind would telegraph a terrorist attack.

What Is Coming

The artificially created threat of terrorism has forced America to defend the venues of sporting events and air travel. However, what security protections have been enacted at malls? One gets scanned and potentially frisked when they travel or go to a game. However, one should consider the fact that there are no equivalent security measures in effect at shopping malls or at a schools or at large churches? Now that these facts are out on the table, America, ask yourself, if you were Soros, where would you attack next? Where would your big false flag attacks occur? And if your goal is national destablization, what would you do given these facts?

Why aren’t DHS and the FBI moving to correct these glaring deficiencies? Instead, the defense of these soft targets has been made easier by the implementation of gun-free-zones. The terrorists know that there will be virtually no opposition at these vulnerable venues.
