If Hillary Clinton ended up winning the presidency, do you think that there would have been allegations of Russian election tampering, or subsequent allegations by the mainstream media of Trump actually having ties to the Russians? Probably not. Why?
Could it be because the Clintons are also connected to the Russians? Yes! They’re ALL connected! And so, had she won, the last thing she would have done is gone after Trump. Not just because she won and there would have been no reason to attempt to undermine his presidency, but because she and her family also rub elbows with the Russians.
And you know what’s strange, Russian multinationals are by and large no different than US multinationals, the only difference is the flag. They’re all the same. Profits over people.
So, when it comes down to it, all the media is really doing is playing off the stigma that comes with “Russia”, and accusing Trump of being some kind of pro-Russian sell out. He’s not a pro-Russian sell out, he’s just a sell out. Just like Hillary, Bill, Obama, Dubyah and the whole lot! Pick a country, any country; he’ll build there and establish the necessary political ties. Why is this so surprising? The oligarchs and billionaire class do this all around the world. The only difference is that if you do it in Russia, then suddenly you’re a double agent of sorts
As the Voltaire saying goes, “When it is a question of money, everybody is of the same religion.” Well, the same goes for nationality. I’m by no means defending Trump, he’s just being a shameless and ruthless capitalist, just like the Clintons and all the rest of them.
It would be one thing if Trump’s ties to Russia were very political, in the sense that his goal is to actually serve the national interest of the Russian government, or even worse, their military. However, he’s just being an opportunist, and Russia just happens to have 77 billionaires. And guess who else cashes in on Russian billionaires, the Clintons. What do ya know!
With that being said, while the mainstream media goes full force with regard to picking apart Trump’s financial ties to Russia, do you really think they would have done the same had Clinton won? Because one thing’s for sure, the Clintons have been courting Russian oligarchs for well over a decade, even to the point of involving the Clinton state department.
In emails first obtained by the conservative group Citizens United, the Clinton Foundation staff asked the state department, and was ultimately given the go ahead, to invite Russian billionaire Viktor Veselberg — who has donated at least $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation — to meet with Clinton’s state department.
And the Clinton’s Russian ties go deeper. The wife of Russian billionaire Leonard Blavatnik, Emily Blavatanik, has donated $33,400 to the Democratic Party, and most recently gave the maximum donation for an individual, $2,700, to Hillary Clinton during her presidential campaign. And the same goes for Daria Zhukova, wife of billionaire oil magnate Roman Abramovich, who also donated $2,700 to Clinton’s campaign. It should be noted that Roman Abramovich is a notorious Putin ally. And speaking of former KGB agents (Putin), billionaire Gennady Timchenko, who is widely rumored to have a KGB past and is believed to be part of Putin’s so called “politburo”, acquired several holdings of Clinton donor Tom Steyer’s hedge fund in 2010.
And then there’s John Podesta and his brother, Tony, who founded the lobbying firm the Podesta Group, a firm which in 2016 lobbied on behalf of Sberbank, which is owned by the Russian Central Bank. Why is this significant? Because John Podesta was also Clinton’s campaign manager.
According to the Observer:
“The firm also lobbied for a pro-Russian political party in Ukraine, the same one that caused Trump adviser Paul Manafort to resign in embarrassment after it was revealed that he worked for former pro-Russian Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. Politico reported that the revelations about Manafort were provided to the Clinton campaign from the Ukrainian government through a DNC consultant who met with Ukrainian officials at the Ukrainian embassy in Washington D.C.”
