Obama White House, Liberal Media Mocked Romney's Accurate View of Russia | SuperCuts #40

When presidential candidate Mitt Romney pronounced Russia to be the "No. 1 geopolitical foe" of the United States, Obama, Biden, Clinton, Kerry and liberal media members mocked it as antiquated, Cold War-style thinking. They're singing a different tune today.

I don't like Mitt Romney, but this is accurate.

Swedish Politician Who Fought for Equality and Open Borders Is Beheaded in Congo (2017)

The problem for the tolerance promoting politicians is that many people (men) from other cultures are not at all tolerant. They don't give a damn. Many in their society can hold prejudices and there may be an undercurrent of violence, especially in locations that are conflict zones (like the Congo). The world is a dangerous place.

Syrian War Report – Nov. 16, 2018: U.S. Exposes Assad's 'Evil Plan' To Hurl Middle East Into Chaos

Anyone following the conflict KNOWS that ISIS and Al Qaeda groups in Syria have been backed by "The West, Gulf States, and Turkey", and used as a proxy force for regime change. This fact is borne out by the US refusal to bomb ISIS military columns in Iraq and Syria during their period of expansion, and the fact that Turkey was buying oil from ISIS:

Seriously: Why is the DOJ indicting Julian Assange but not Hillary Clinton?

According to the Wall Street Journal, the U.S. Justice Department is about to indict and prosecute Julian Assange, a journalist whose life has already been destroyed through his “imprisonment” in an Ecuadorian embassy for the last six years.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton, a traitorous political mafia boss who sold out America’s strategic uranium supply to enemies while collecting “speaking fee” bribes from international oligarchs, is apparently not being prosecuted by anyone at all.

What’s wrong with this picture?

If anyone should go free today, it’s Julian Assange. And if anyone should be indicted and prosecuted for serious crimes, it’s Hillary Clinton. Yet, as the WSJ reports:

U.S. prosecutors have discussed several types of charges they could potentially bring against Mr. Assange… The exact charges Justice Department might pursue remain unclear, but they may involve the Espionage Act, which criminalizes the disclosure of national defense-related information.

The difference between Julian Assange and Hillary Clinton

Julian Assange is committed to transparency and truth. Hillary Clinton is committed to cover-ups and lies.

Julian Assange went public with damning evidence of America’s treachery to try to make it stop. Hillary Clinton destroyed damning evidence and magnified America’s treachery to try to make it worse.

Julian Assange would do anything just to breathe fresh air again and walk in a public park. Hillary Clinton would do anything to suffocate America’s freedoms and seize authoritarian power over the entire nation.

Julian Assange wants people to live (and learn, and awaken). Hillary Clinton wants people to DIE (and sleep with the fishes).

When peoples’ lives are at stake, Julian Assange goes public with important information to keep people informed. But when lives are at stake in the Middle East, Hillary Clinton pretends a terrorist attack isn’t happening and refuses to send aid, making sure U.S. soldiers and ambassadors get murdered by a lunatic mob. Then she blames someone else for the entire thing with a made-up story of pure fiction. Coincidentally, that’s exactly how Robert Mueller operates, too.

Julian Assange exposed the truth about the DNC. Hillary Clinton hid the truth (about Benghazi and much more) and has peddled nothing but lies for the last three decades.

Julian Assange located dark secrets and exposed them to the public in the name of transparency. Hillary Clinton took public truths and buried them inside layers of dark secrets in the name of deception and treason.

Julian Assange is a well-meaning man with a deep commitment to share the truth. Hillary Clinton is a vindictive, vicious woman with a deep commitment to making sure anyone who opposes her ends up in a body bag.

Julian Assange has been imprisoned in an embassy building for six years, unable to go outside for fear of being arrested. Hillary Clinton has been free to continue committing serious international crimes of corruption and campaign finance fraud, right out in public, with zero fear of being arrested or stopped because the entire judicial system treats her as someone is it above the law.

Julian Assange dared to release truthful information that exposed the deep deception and electoral fraud taking place inside the DNC to make sure Hillary got the nomination. Hillary Clinton destroyed 30,000+ emails on her illegal server to make sure no one would ever find out how she betrayed America to seize power at any cost.

If anyone should be indicted right now, it’s Hillary Clinton.

Lock her up. And pardon Julian Assange in exchange for him sharing everything he has on the Clintons and the DNC.

Death of HHS official Daniel Best is ruled a suicide (Apparently Beat Himself To Death)

D.C. - The Nov. 1 death of Daniel Best, a pharmaceutical executive from Bay Village who led U.S. Department of Health and Human Services efforts to lower prescription drug prices, has been ruled a suicide, officials in Washington, D.C., said Thursday.

Police say Best was found "unresponsive" near the garage door exit of an apartment building in Washington, D.C.'s Navy Yard neighborhood at 5:25 a.m. on Nov. 1, and was pronounced dead by medical personnel who responded to the scene.

The city's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner on Thursday said Best died from "multiple blunt force injuries" and it ruled his death a suicide. It would not release further information.

In announcing his death, HHS Secretary Alex Azar said the 49-year-old former CVSHealth and Pfizer Pharmaceuticals executive agreed to work at HHS "out of a desire to serve the American people by making health care more affordable."

Skripal and Khashoggi: West Manufactures Absurd Fantasy to Pin on Russia, Lets Saudi Get Away With Chopping up WaPo Journalist Alive

Two disappearances, and two very different responses from Western governments, which illustrates their rank hypocrisy.

When former Russian spy Sergei Skripal went missing in England earlier this year, there was almost immediate punitive action by the British government and its NATO allies against Moscow. By contrast, Western governments are straining with restraint towards Saudi Arabia over the more shocking and provable case of murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The outcry by Western governments and media over the Skripal affair was deafening and resulted in Britain, the US and some 28 other countries expelling dozens of Russian diplomats on the back of unsubstantiated British allegations that the Kremlin tried to assassinate an exiled spy with a deadly nerve agent. The Trump administration has further tightened sanctions citing the Skripal incident.

London’s case against Moscow has been marked by wild speculation and ropey innuendo. No verifiable evidence of what actually happened to Sergei Skripal (67) and his daughter Yulia has been presented by the British authorities. Their claim that President Vladimir Putin sanctioned a hit squad armed with nerve poison relies on sheer conjecture.

All we know for sure is that the Skripals have been disappeared from public contact by the British authorities for more than seven months, since the mysterious incident of alleged poisoning in Salisbury on March 4.

Russian authorities and family relatives have been steadfastly refused any contact by London with the Skripal pair, despite more than 60 official requests from Moscow in accordance with international law and in spite of the fact that Yulia is a citizen of the Russian Federation with consular rights.

It is an outrage that based on such thin ice of “evidence”, the British have built an edifice of censure against Moscow, rallying an international campaign of further sanctions and diplomatic expulsions.

Now contrast that strenuous reaction, indeed hyper over-reaction, with how Britain, the US, France, Canada and other Western governments are ever-so slowly responding to Saudi Arabia over the Khashoggi case.

After nearly two weeks since Jamal Khashoggi entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, the Saudi regime is this week finally admitting he was killed on their premises – albeit, they claim, in a “botched interrogation”.

Turkish and American intelligence had earlier claimed that Khashoggi was tortured and murdered on the Saudi premises by a 15-member hit squad sent from Riyadh.

Even more grisly, it is claimed that Khashoggi’s body was hacked up with a bone saw by the killers, his remains secreted out of the consulate building in boxes, and flown back to Saudi Arabia on board two private jets connected to the Saudi royal family.

What’s more, the Turks and Americans claim that the whole barbaric plot to murder Khashoggi was on the orders of senior Saudi rulers, implicating Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The latest twist out of Riyadh, is an attempt to scapegoat “rogue killers” and whitewash the House of Saudi from culpability.

The fact that 59-year-old Khashoggi was a legal US resident and a columnist for the Washington Post has no doubt given his case such prominent coverage in Western news media. Thousands of other victims of Saudi vengeance are routinely ignored in the West.

Nevertheless, despite the horrific and damning case against the Saudi monarchy, the response from the Trump administration, Britain and others has been abject.

President Trump has blustered that there “will be severe consequences” for the Saudi regime if it is proven culpable in the murder of Khashoggi. Trump quickly qualified, however, saying that billion-dollar arms deals with the oil-rich kingdom will not be cancelled. Now Trump appears to be joining in a cover-up by spinning the story that the Khashoggi killing was done by “rogue killers”.

Britain, France and Germany this week issued a joint statement calling for “a credible investigation” into the disappearance. But other than “tough-sounding” rhetoric, none of the European states have indicated any specific sanctions, such as weapons contracts being revoked or diplomatic expulsions.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he was “concerned” by the gruesome claims about Khashoggi’s killing, but he reiterated that Ottawa would not be scrapping a $15 billion sale of combat vehicles to Riyadh.

The Saudi rulers have even threatened retaliatory measures if sanctions are imposed by Western governments.

Saudi denials of official culpability seem to be a brazen flouting of all reason and circumstantial evidence that Khashoggi was indeed murdered in the consulate building on senior Saudi orders.

Clapper’s Credibility Collapses - Ray McGovern

Former National Intelligence Director James Clapper’s key role in helping the Cheney/Bush administration “justify” war on Iraq with fraudulent intelligence was exposed on Tuesday at the Carnegie Endowment in Washington by his own words quoted back to him from his memoir “Facts and Fears: Hard Truths From a Life in Intelligence.” Hard truths, indeed.

Clapper was appointed Director of National Intelligence by President Barack Obama in June 2010, almost certainly at the prompting of Obama’s intelligence confidant and Clapper friend John Brennan, later director of the CIA. Despite Clapper’s performance on Iraq, he was confirmed unanimously by the Senate. Obama even allowed Clapper to keep his job for three and a half more years after he admitted that he had lied under oath to that same Senate about the extent of eavesdropping on Americans by the National Security Agency (NSA). He is now a security analyst for CNN.

In his book, Clapper finally places the blame for the consequential fraud (he calls it “the failure”) to find the (non-existent) WMD “where it belongs – squarely on the shoulders of the administration members who were pushing a narrative of a rogue WMD program in Iraq and on the intelligence officers, including me, who were so eager to help that we found what wasn’t really there.” (emphasis added).

So at the event on Tuesday I stood up and asked him about that. It was easy, given the background Clapper himself provides in his book, such as:

“The White House aimed to justify why an invasion of and regime change in Iraq were necessary, with a public narrative that condemned its continued development of weapons of mass destruction [and] its support to al-Qaida (for which the Intelligence Community had no evidence).”

What Clapper chokes on – and avoids saying – is that U.S. intelligence had no evidence of WMD either. Indeed, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld had put him in charge of the agency responsible for analyzing imagery of all kinds – photographic, radar, infrared, and multispectral – precisely so that the absence of evidence from our multi-billion-dollar intelligence collection satellites could be hidden, in order not to impede the planned attack on Iraq. That’s why, as Clapper now admits, he had to find “what wasn’t really there.”

Members of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) who have employed Clapper under contract, or otherwise known his work, caution that he is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. So, to be fair, there is an outside chance that Rumsfeld persuaded him to be guided by the (in)famous Rumsfeld dictum: “The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.”

But the consequences are the same: a war of aggression with millions dead and wounded; continuing bedlam in the area; and no one – high or low – held accountable. Hold your breath and add Joe Biden awarding the “Liberty Medal” to George W. Bush on Veteran’s Day.
