This is an English translation of an article that I wrote for the German magazine, Compact. I was encouraged by the high level of intelligent discourse that Compact brings to its readers. If only the US had more people capable of reaching beyond entertainment to comprehending the forces that affect them, there might be some hope for America.

Compact brings hope to Germany. The German people are beginning to understand that their country is not sovereign but a vassal of Washington and that their chancellor serves Washington’s hegemony and American financial interests, and not the German people.

Hillary Clinton is proving to be the “teflon candidate.” In her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, she has escaped damage from major scandals, any one of which would destroy a politician. Hillary has accepted massive bribes in the form of speaking fees from financial organizations and corporations. She is under investigation for misuse of classified data, an offense for which a number of whistleblowers are in prison. Hillary has survived the bombing of Libya, her creation of a failed Libyan state that is today a major source of terrorist jihadists, and the Benghazi controversy. She has survived charges that as Secretary of State she arranged favors for foreign interests in exchange for donations to the Clintons’ foundation. And, of course, there is a long list of previous scandals: Whitewater, Travelgate, Filegate. Diana Johnstone’s book, Queen of Chaos, describes Hillary Clinton as “the top salesperson for the ruling oligarchy.”

Hillary Clinton is a bought-and-paid-for representative of the big banks, the military-security complex, and the Israel Lobby. She will represent these interests, not those of the American people or America’s European allies.

The Clintons’ purchase by interest groups is public knowledge. For example, CNN reports that between February 2001 and May 2015 Bill and Hillary Clinton were paid $153 million in speaking fees for 729 speeches, an average price of $210,000.

As it became evident that Hillary Clinton would emerge as the likely Democratic presidential candidate, she was paid more. Deutsche Bank paid her $485,000 for one speech, and Goldman Sachs paid her $675,000 for three speeches. Bank of American Morgan Stanley, UBS, and Fidelity Investments each paid $225,000. https://theintercept.com/2016/01/08/hillary-clinton-earned-more-from-12-speeches-to-big-banks-than-most-americans-earn-in-their-lifetime/

Despite Hillary’s blatent willingness to be bribed in public, her opponent, Bernie Sanders, has not succeeded in making an issue of Hillary’s shamelessness. Both of the main establishment newspapers, the Washington Post and the New York Times have come to Hillary’s defense.

ORDER IT NOW

Hillary is a war-monger. She pushed the Obama regime into the destruction of a stable and largely cooperative government in Libya where the “Arab Spring” was a CIA-backed group of jihadists who were used to dislodge China from its oil investments in eastern Libya. She urged her husband to bomb Yugoslavia. She pushed for “regime change” in Syria. She oversaw the coup that overthrew the democratically elected president of Honduras. She brought neoconservative Victoria Nuland, who arranged the coup that overthrew the democratically elected president of Ukraine, into the State Department. Hillary has called President Vladimir Putin of Russia the “new Hitler.” Hillary as president guarantees war and more war. http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2016/02/hillary-clintons-six-foreign-policy-catastrophes.html

In the United States government has been privatized. Office holders use their positions in order to make themselves wealthy, not in order to serve the public interest. Bill and Hillary Clinton epitomize the use of public office in behalf of the office holder’s interest. For the Clintons government means using public office to be rewarded for doing favors for private interests. The Wall Street Journal reported that “at least 60 companies that lobbied the State Department during her [Hillary Clinton’s] tenure as Secretary of State donated a total of more than $26 million to the Clinton Foundation.”http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2015/02/hillary-clinton-exposed-part-1-aggressively-lobbied-mega-corporations-secretary-state.html

According to washingtonsblog.com, “All told, the Clinton Foundation and its affiliates have collected donations and pledges from all souces of more than $1.6 billion, accoring to their tax returns.”

According to rootsactionteam.com, multi-million dollar donars to the Clinton Foundation include Saudi Arabia, Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk, Kuwait, ExxonMobil, Friends of Saudi Arabia, James Murdoch, Qatar, Boeing, Dow, Goldman Sachs, Walmart, and the United Arab Emirates.

According to the International Business Times, “Under Hillary Clinton, the State Department approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations whose governments had given millions to the Clinton Foundation.” http://www.ibtimes.com/clinton-foundation-donors-got-weapons-deals-hillary-clintons-state-department-1934187

Hillary Clinton has escaped unharmed from so many crimes and scandals that she would likely be the most reckless president in American history. With the arms race renewed, with Russia declared “an existential threat to the United States,” and with Hillary’s declaration of President Putin as the new Hitler, Hillary’s arrogant self-confidence is likely to result in over-reach that ends in conflict between NATO and Russia. Considering the extraordinary destructive force of nuclear weapons, Hillary as president could mean the end of life on earth.

  1. Eustace Tilley (not) [AKA "Schiller/Nietzsche"] says:

    Her cackling glee at the gruesome lynching of Muammar Gaddafi shows the depth of her sadistic cruelty. “Harvesting” fetuses for body parts is in the same vein, so it’s not too surprising that she is the first Presidential candidate to receive the endorsement of Planned Parenthood. The aim of the elite is the destruction of religion and the family. There will then be no barriers, even in people’s minds, to their limitless, amoral power.

    The fact that most women support her shows that they should never have been given the franchise. Now that Trump has cracked open — just a little — the shell of “political correctness”, intelligent men of good sense should fill their lungs with fresh air and openly raise the issue of the repeal of the 19th Amendment. The National Socialists were wrong about some things, right about others. They were right to embrace the slogan, “Kinder, Kuche, Kirche”. It’s the only sane policy with respect to women. If you take the time to read Arthur Schopenhauer’s short essay, “On Women”, this should become crystal clear.

  2. @Eustace Tilley (not)

    I thought that Kinder, Kuche, Kirche was an idea that Bismarck developed, although I agree it accurately characterized the NSDAP policies toward women. The trend seems to be in the opposite direction; it will take calamity or the rise of a new religion to return women to the home.

    Women’s ability to own or dispose of property, or to enter into contracts, without the consent of their husbands is also relatively recent. Women’s economic power, and the fact that marketers cater to it, may be every bit as important as political power.

    I thought Germans were smart people. Are you seriously telling me there are those that don’t realize they’ve been under occupation since the end of World War 2? The same applies to Japan.

    You’d have to be incredibly self-deceptive to not realize it from the onset….

    Any chance of getting a look at some of these speeches? They seem to be more tightly held than Krushchev’s secret de-Stalinization speech was. I wonder how many speechwriters she employs? It’s doubtful she actually writes anything herself. The entire mass media is owned by the billionaire class so of course they’re not going to focus in on this open bribery because they’re all part of the club and she’s their candidate. Finance capital has succeeded in capturing the government and the media monopoly blares it’s propaganda through their loudspeakers 24/7.
    Clinton is a wrecker; everything she involves herself with turns into ruin like a bad luck curse. She’s a war lover and is enamored of foreign adventures. Lots of people have died because of her but they’re invisible because the media chooses not to dwell on that; they’re all lesser people of no value anyway. War is good, expensive business; hundreds of thousands have to die so the American economy can live, one supposes.
    There’s always an ongoing debate as to the actual bodycount that past historical dictators are responsible for, as in ‘how many did Stalin really kill?’. How about an examination of how many people have been killed by the policies of Clinton, or of Bush? How much blood do these people have on their hands? Let’s have some numbers of what the butcher’s bill total is to date.

    ” War is good expensive business; hundreds of thousands have to die so the American economy can live, one supposes.”

    Who teaches you that ?

    This, post 9-11, Neocon perpetual “war economy” has drained our country to the point of bankruptcy……we now owe ourselves over 19 “trillion” dollars…

    That is 19 million, million dollars , anonymous,stolen from all Americans, and all future generations, mostly to fight bogus wars of aggression.

    This is not just outrageous….this is “obscene”…..its criminal.

    Our national debt has nearly “quadrupled “in a mere fifteen years ,fighting these malevolent , never-ending wars.

    We have “overspent” what we have….. by over 13 “trillion” dollars.

    How is sucking our country dry, of tens of trillions of dollars we don’t have , good for business, anonymous ?

    Are you living in cave, somewhere, to think that ?

    How do you purpose we pay for it, then ?

    Nothing has destroyed our “economy” with as much vehemence and rapidity than our Neocon war making over the last decade and a half.

    Nothing.

    It is a complete fiscal catastrophe.

    Perhaps it is time to hold Judeo-Bolsheviks accountable for the millions of lives they have destroyed or ruined.
    This, however, leads to big problems: every existing forum of redress (governments, education, media – even industry) is dominated or controlled by them; and, there’s hardly an American who knows of the power locked up in the right of redress (the First Amendment).
    Take, for example, one: the right of consent and its logical consequent, two, the right to withhold taxes until government redresses grievances.
    One: American Founders repeatedly declared that “no man is obligated to obey any law or pay any tax unless he has given consent to it”. Did they mean this literally? Of course they did. From the first English settlement to the Revolution this was how affairs of the colonies were managed. Every “law” and every “tax” had its origin in contracts between colonial assemblies and those who petitioned for redress of grievances. The terms of the contract were sometimes referred to as “laws” of the contract, while its money payments were treated as “taxes”. And only petitioners were obligated to obey such “laws” and pay such “taxes”. When redress was completed, related “laws” and “taxes” expired. (http://redressone.wordpress.com/)
    This right of consent has powerful implications today: it means that only those who petition (submit proposed legislation to Congress) are obligated to obey terms (“laws”) and needed money payments “(taxes)” related to such petition. This means, for example, when munitions-makers and Judeo-Bolshevik money lenders bribe congressmen to authorize establishment of rule by death squads in, say, Iraq, those “petitioners” would have to pay taxes needed to subsidize such death squads.
    This sounds fair to me.
    Two: In 1774, the Continental Congress issued the “Appeal to the Inhabitants of Quebec”. Its purpose was to encourage Canadians to join the American Revolution. This Appeal, listed three grand rights Americans intended to win with the Revolution: a) consent, b) redress before taxes and c) due process of law. Americans have heard of one and three and, of course, have no or little understanding of either. As to the second right, “redress before taxes”, it has almost been completely erased from our history and law books.
    The most comprehensive treatment of this right of “redress before taxes” is contained in my book, The Lost Right, edition 3.5. (http://redressone.wordpress.com/the-lost-right/)
    There, in four paragraphs I conveyed to you more real history than you learned in 12 years of elementary and high schools, and 4-6 years of university indoctrination. You won’t learn this and other lessons from professors, or judges, or lawyers; the first two depend on continued grievances for their pensions, the third never learned such history, or law.
    Until a few Americans learn – and use – these lessons of American/English history, there will be no redress, no accountability, no stopping Judeo-Bolsheviks’ destruction of America; and, if anyone sets out to correct existing grievances, he will not know HOW to do it – nor will he know WHAT to aim at, or WHAT rights to establish or confirm.

    Good points,

    But I think we really just need to get the POTUS to act in our national interest, and arrest these people.

    The charges are quite clear:

    Conspiracy to defraud the United States into committing the supreme terrorist act: “War of Aggression”.

    This should be understood as the crime of “terrorism”…because that is exactly what it is.

    Once we understood that all the ‘imminent threat’ and “anthrax” pretexts, were complete lies foisted upon us to go to war…….we want our money back,…… Don’t you ?

    They should be arrested and sent to federal prison, and all their assets confiscated to pay down the humongous debt they defrauded us into, in the first place.

    We are not going to get “all” our money back….but we could get close to a trillion..which is a nice dent.

    The next POTUS, who does this, would be a national hero…the greatest president in our nations history.

    We can restore our country, reconnect with the free Republic we once were, before they staged their “coup”, in 2001, and took over the shop.

    Our media might even become “real”again….and people could watch it, without thinking they are totally full of BS.

    With nearly all their pernicious defrauding permanently remaindered, we can begin to heal as a nation and eventually become ourselves again.

    No ?

    Or is 19 trillion in insolvency too big a hurdle to overcome ?

    Hillary is a woman who never says anything that isn’t triangulated mendacity; infected with Alinskyite tactics since youth, surrounded by Svengalis and machinating court Jews today; anti-American and impossibly cavalier with mock goy chutzpah; and corrupt and utterly reckless and self-righteous and destructive; dangerously capable at doing what she does; running for President instead of rotting in a cell for treason.

    She is nation-killing poison in a pantsuit. She will effectively dissolve the borders and the United States will cease to be; Wall Street and the FED will steal even more; she will start god knows how many wars for Jewish globalists. The SJW racial-sexual anti-White propaganda insanity will somehow magnify. The country is finished if she gets elected.

    Merkel is her most admired world leader! Hillary should hold up a sign reading: “I will destroy the United States with Mexicans”.

    A Hillary presidency will be a sensible shoe stamping on a human face– forever.

    And of course that’s why she has the support of our oligarchs and their useful fools.

    “cackling glee at the gruesome lynching…..”

    Looking back on it ,its pretty sad that an individual who would act like this, could even occupy a space in our government, let alone run for president.

    The idea that our 19 trillion dollar national debt, or the money stolen from us,( and the next six generations of Americans) in fighting wars based on fraud, has not even been acknowledged by the “cackling ” Ms. Clinton, is the truest sign she represents a complete catastrophe, if elected, to every American citizen, today..

    And to think, I used to like her, a lot.

    Tell me one thing President Clinton will do to return the trillions of dollars , stolen from us as a result of the pernicious war fraud foisted upon us.?

    Nothing.

    Since she voted for it ,I wonder who is actually voting for her,…. today ?

    I truly do.

    I don’t know one person, who is. Do you?
