B161031efore moving too far along in this piece, I would like to remind you of the one thing I believe should be very important to every American citizen. Seven days from now, on Nov. 8, 2016, you will be voting for the person who will become the holder of the office of President of the United States.
It would not only be nice, and not only patriotic, but it would be a sound intellectual decision to vote for the only candidate who believes this country has a future as a free and sovereign nation, with a national identity and the respect—and fear—of every nation on Earth.

After all, you have expectations of still being here after Jan. 20, 2017—still looking for the jobs Barack Obama promised in 2008 and again in 2012; and, the jobs that Hillary Clinton has been promising since 2015—jobs that she began selling to foreign business owners in 2007. While Clinton and the other boot-licking socialist lackies doing the bidding of the money mafia have been blaming George W. Bush for the failing economy, the reality is that since she became a US Senator from New York, Hillary Clinton has been filling the coffers of the Clinton Foundation selling your jobs to her foreign constituency—as she affectionately calls them. Particularly India.

Please understand what I just said. It's important. Hillary viewed India as her "constituency" because of the money she received from India and from one India businessmen who began trading dollars for Clinton quid pro quos in 1994—Sant Singh Chatwal.

As a candidate for the US Senate from New York in 2000, India was among the first to gain access to her. The bond was forged by Chatwal, a hotel-restaurant mogel. Chatwal, a naturalized US citizen from India (and a US tax deadbeat), who initially bundled $500 thousand for Bill Clinton in a 1994 fundraiser in his Upper Eastside penthouse. When Hillary decided to run for the US Senate, Chatwal was one of the first calls she made. Chatwal used his India connections with several of that country's most prosperous businessmen (who wanted a slice of the US customer service job industry) to raise money for Hillary so you could vote for her (if you live in New York) so she could sell your jobs to India.

The Clintons reciprocated (that old political quid pro quo) by approving grants to India-American advocacy groups which were working to outsource jobs from the United States to India. Outsourcing actually began in 1995-6 with Cisco Systems (a major Bill Clinton donor) who began importing workers from India to replace $60 thousand-plus American high tech employees with new hires from Bangalore, India for about half the money. Cisco Systems justified the job shifts by claiming they couldn't find qualified employees in the United States.

By 1998 Cisco had only a handful of American Infosys Technology workers overseas (Infosys is an outsourcer of jobs to India). Most of their 850 employees were native India citizens. (Infosys launched an IT subsidiary in Monterray, Mexico to outsource outsourced jobs from India to Mexico.) In 2006 Newsweek reported that Cisco System's R&D facility—employing 3,000 people, would be re-located to India. (Bill Clinton received $300 thousand from Cisco in 2006 for two speeches. Cisco employees—those who still had jobs—donated $39,450 to Hillary.)

Bill Clinton invested upwards of $50 thousand in an India bill paying company through his WJC Investments, LLP when outsourcing became a hot property. The company, Easy Bill Limited, is an India corporation. Easy Bill functions as a one-stop bill paying outlet for utility bills, credit card bills or any other debts you pay online. (It's website, http://www.easybillindia.com (does not conceal from anyone interested in billing collection services that they are an outsourced company).

In 2004 Congress—and several States—attempted to enact anti-outsourcing laws. In March, 2004 the Senate approved an amendment by Sen. Chris Dodd [D-CT] disallowing tax dollars from being used to facilitate the outsourcing of American jobs. A day earlier, then Congressman Bernie Sanders [I-VT] (who won one of Vermont's two US Senate seats in 2007, and had the Democratic presidential nomination stolen from him in 2016 when the Democratic National Committee which changed the rules on how delegates were awarded to specifically favor Hillary Clinton), Sanders introduced a bill that would deny grants or loans to any US company that outsourced jobs if they laid off workers in the United States to a greater level than layoffs of employees in any of the other industrial nations in the world. Several industrial States attempted to enact anti-outsourcing laws that year, but those bills either failed, or they were defanged before passage.

As pressure mounted to kill outsourcing, senators Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and Chuck Schumer were instrumental in creating the Senate India Caucus (which was "coordinated" by the US India Political Action Committee) to lobby Senators who were attempting to derail job outsourcing. When the Caucus was formed, Hillary Clinton told Roll Call that "...[i]t is imperative that the United States do everything possible to reach out to India. This Caucus is dedicated to expanding areas of agreement with India and engaging in a candid dialogue of differences." With their money in her pocket, what else could she say? Hillary is a co-chairman of the Caucus. On the House side, Hillary's allies were then House Speaker Nancy Pelos [D-CA] and Congressman Joe Crowley [D-NY]. (If your job has been outsourced to India, Pakistan, Indonesia, China or the Pacific rim nations, you now know who to thank.) So, why are you voting for HIllary?

Even with all of their new-found global friends (particularly in the Mideast) who stand in line to favor them with their largess, it's important to understand that the Clintons, who illegally raked-in hundreds of millions from China when they occupied the White House committed treason by sharing classified US industrial secrets with the People's Republic of China—in addition to breaking just about every campaign finance law on the books in the United States.

For elected officials of the United States government to conspire with a foreign entity to interfere with, or in any way influence, the national elections in the United States violates a whole host of federal laws—particularly when the collusion with America's enemies took place from within the White House. Bill and Hillary Clinton are so corrupt they engaged in the fund-raising practice of renting out the Lincoln bedroom in the White House to rich liberals. The arrogant Clintons saw themselves as the Lords of the Manor and not merely temporary tenants in the People's House. Their arrogance extended to high crimes and misdemeanors within the government offices within the White House itself where federal law prohibits "politicking" in any official area in the Executive Branch. White House staffers are forbidden by law from accepting or even talking about campaign contributions in the People's House. Yet, the Clintons collected hundreds of millions of dollars from deep pocket donors seeking quid pro quos for their largess.

The White House "Coffees" which former Human Events columnist and prolific writer Ann Coulter, citing Michael Isikoff in her 1995 best seller High Crimes and Misdemeanors, said that then DNC finance chief Terry McAuliffe (now the governor of Virginia) was the architect of both the renting out of the Lincoln bedroom and the White House Coffees. Most liberal pundits believe Hillary dreamed up the Lincoln bedroom scheme, because they claimed, only a woman could have thought that up; and that Al Gore, Jr. was the mastermind of the White House Coffees. But, I agree with Coulter that the idea of the White House Coffees was a light bulb moment of McAuliffe, who visited Bill Clinton [who was home alone] on Christmas Day, 1993 and told him that, in all likelihood, he was going to be a "one-term" president unless he found a way to avail himself of deep pockets supporters in private, one-on-one meetings "over coffee" where quid pro quos could be openly, but very privately, discussed. When Gore, who was working the Chinese military intelligence (or rather, they were working Gore), suggested that the Coffees be held in the Oval Office because of the office's "aura of power," the White House lawyers started squirming. Every member of the Clinton inner-circle knew that campaigning in any government office—especially in the White House—was illegal. It is a felony under Title 52.

In 1997 when Judicial Watch which, at the time, was still under the control of its founder, Larry Klayman, uncovered the details of the illegal and treasonous White House fund-raising scheme, and as the Republican-controlled House initiated the Cox Committee hearings on the illegal quid pro quos between the Clinton White House, key House and Senate Democrats, and the People's Republic of China. It was at this time that the liberal media appeared to have waken up. But appearances, particularly political appearances, are always deceiving.

On March 2, 1997 the Chicago Tribune's Washington Bureau Chief William Neikirk suggested that Democrat fund-raisers walked to the edge of the law and may have crossed it only because fuzzy legal statutes make it hard to determine if anything the Clintons did by accepting bribes from the People's Republic of China (which now has most of this countries jobs—including America's auto industry. When Congress poured on the heat, Bill Clinton argued that all he did was invite a few friends over to the house for coffee and conversation.

I guess that's like Hillary Clinton fuzzily not recognizing the classification markings on emails which denote the message is "Confidential," "Classified," "Secret," or varying degrees of "Top Secret." After eight years as the unofficial co-president, I expect Hillary knew every coding classification in the federal government. She would know just how secret those communications were—especially those discussing how much this country or that country was willing to cough up for some industry's job base or for a uranium mine in Willow Creek, Wyoming. Turns out that Uranium One, a Canadian firm which owned the Willow Creek uranium mine in the Power Creek Valley, was in partnership with the government of Kazakhstan, which meant before the ownership of a uranium mine in Wyoming could be transferred to the Russian government (which has a half century history of aggressiveness towards the United States), the State Department had to issue a waiver which would allow the transfer of a critical United States property which produces 1/5th of all of the uranium mined in the United States (owned by Canadian Uranium One which was slowly selling off larger shares of its assets to the Russians in Kazakhstan). It should never have been allowed since the Russian government under Vladimir Putin appears to be engaging his nation in a new nuclear race.

In 2009 Bill Clinton, whose Clinton Foundation had already received substantial donations of from Uranium One's CEO, Frank Giustra, was invited to go with Giustra to Moscow and help him lobby the Russian government into selling him some uranium mines in Kazakhstan. Clinton agreed. While in Moscow Bill Clinton received a $500 thousand speaking fee from the Russian investment bank which was promoting the sale of Uranium One stock to Russian investors..

Shortly after Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State, the Russian government quietly began investing in Uranium One. Between 2009 and 2013, Uranium One made four $2.3 million donations to the Clinton Foundation. (Although Hillary was the US Secretary of State, none of the Uranium One donations to the Clinton Foundation were ever publicly disclosed (nor privately confided to Obama)—despite the transparency agreement Hillary made with Barack Obama to publicly identify all donors who contributed to the Clinton Foundation while she served as Secretary of State.) Not only was that $9.2 million not reported, neither was the $31 million donation to the Clinton Foundation received for their "help" putting the deal together, nor the promised $100 million donation that would be forthcoming when the merger between Uranium One and the Russian government was finalized, and the State Department waivers needed for the Russian government to assume majority ownership in Uranium One—and its Willow Creek and other Powder Valley, Wyoming holdings—were finalized. What does that mean? It means the Russian government can now use uranium mined in Wyoming to make nuclear weapons that, someday, will rain down on us and destroy what used to be the most powerful economy on Earth.

There is no doubt that when Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State, the office she held became an international criminal enterprise. Such corruption in the United States government has not existed since the administration of Ulysses S. Grant during the Credit Mobilier Scandal of 1872 when Union Pacific officers bribed a majority of the members of Congress as the Union Pacific Railroad investors raped the American taxpayers in order to build the nation's first transcontinental rail system with the wholesale buying of Congressmen and Senators to keep authorizing the writing of checks to pay for the laying of rails across the nation when those checks were used by a surrogate, Credit Mobilier, who became the paymaster of Union Pacific (which actually owed the debt) to cover the cost of the bribes being paid to members of Congress. In the end, Union Pacific went bankrupt building a railroad in the American West that the taxpayers in the East couldn't afford and didn't want. The Credit Mobilier Scandal ended the political careers of some 30 House and Senate members. Among them was the 29th Speaker of the House and 17th Vice President under President Ulysses S. Grant, Schuyler Colfax, who was forced to resign to avoid impeachment and likely imprisonment.)

Grant's administration was the most corrupt (up to that date) in the nation's history. While Credit Mobilier initiated the explosive, rampant bribing of members of Congress and initiated the era of career political thieves who discovered they could get rich on the dole; bribing politicians actually goes back to the days of Secretary of State James Monroe, a poor man on the cusp of power. John Jacob Astor, who was building the American Fur Company to compete with the Northwest Trading Company in Canada, needed the help of the Secretary of State and the Secretary of War—both position being held by Monroe during the presidency of James Madison during the War of 1812—to secure the franchises he needed, but more important, to have US troops assigned to protect the trading posts from hostile Indians once they were established. Astor offered Monroe a bribe the Secretary could not refuse. Astor loaned him $5,000—with a no repayment clause. Monroe accepted the loan, and Astor got his fur trading franchises.

During Grant's administration, Secretary of War William Belknap was forced to resign after he was caught selling trading post franchises. Belknap was a former Iowa state legislator and a Civil War general in Grant's command. He became Grant's War secretary when Grant took office, and held the post for nearly eight years. Belknap was notorious for very expensive, extravagant Washington parties.  Many of Belknap's peers who earned incomes equivalent to the Secretary, wondered how Belknap could live so extravagantly on his $8,000 income. An investigation in January, 1876 revealed Belknap's part time career. On March 2, 1876, mere hours before the House of Representatives was to vote on the Articles of Impeachment to remove Belknap from office, the Secretary rode to the White House and handed the President his resignation.

Scandals also touched Treasury Secretary William Richardson who helped financiers Jay Gould and Jim Fisk corner the gold market. While his administration was corrupt to the core, Grant was an honest soldier who died a pauper. His sin was allowing the culture of graft and corruption to take control of the federal government.

Fraud and bribery have ruled both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC since Reconstruction. As honest men fought and died to preserve the Union, corrupt billionaires—the Titans of Wall Street (who would own the Federal Reserve System in 1912) and the princes of industry and the courtesans of commerce who stole the fiduciary responsibility of government by shackling America's elected officials to the platinum-plated money trough where the dole is worth millions and today, the career of the politician is guaranteed by a computer program artfully concealed in the voting machines which compute and re-calibrate your votes every two years—unless the Titans of Wall Street want the politican gone. And then, there aren't enough legal votes which can be cast for him to keep his job.

In the Chinagate money laundering saga uncovered by Larry Klayman, then the Chairman of Judicial Watch, which the Clintons and other leftwing Washington politicians were engaged in from 1983 to 1997. More than anyone else, the Clintons proved that by escaping without an impeachment conviction for treason, that not only was the residency in the White House exempted from federal campaign laws, so apparently was everything and everyone else in the nation's capital—including the socialist left in the US Senate and House of Representatives who had been taking campaign money from China since 1984 when the People's Republic of China began buying Democratic Congressmen and Senators like penny candy in an effort to make sure socialists controlled the House and Senate during Ronald Reagan's last term of office.

In 1978 James Riady, son of Indonesian industrialist-banker Mochtar Riady (who had close personnel ties with the Chinese People's Liberation Army) met with then Gov. Bill Clinton, Wilton "Witt" Stephens, head of Stephens, Inc., a Little Rock investment company, and Stephens "handyman" Larry Nichols in a back booth in Charlie Trie's Little Rock restaurant. Riady and Stephens had a pocketful of wishes to exchange.

China was suffering from the worst rice crop shortages in recent memory and needed that food staple. Stephens wanted to sell rice to China through an Arkansas agricultural cooperative market, Riceland Foods. Riceland would be supplied by a farmers coop called Rice Farmers of America. In return for his intercession with the People's Republic of China [PRC] on behalf of Stephens, Mochtar Riady wanted only one small favor from Stephens. Riady wanted to own a bank in the United States.

James Riady planned to use this new bank to finance a few American ventures. More likely than not the purpose of the new bank was to give the LippoGroup a way to launder Chinese political seed money—contributions to the right types of political candidates to guarantee Jimmy Carter's reelection and to expand the Democratic majority in Congress. Stephens purportedly assured Riady that since he already owned the governor, it would easy to arrange—except for one small problem. Riady was a resident alien and not an American citizen. He could not own a bank charter in the United States. Stephens would need an American front man to apply for the charter.

Stephens said he had a man he could trust, a former Green Beret named Larry Nichols. Nichols would join the Clinton team as a key strategist in 1982. But, for the moment, he was Witt's boy. According to Nichols, on the bank charter application appeared Larry Nichols' signature. Below it, as an officer of the new corporation, was the signature of James Riady.

James Riady got his bank. Stephens got his rice deal. Bill Clinton got his connection to the PRC through the LippoGroup. And Larry Nichols' got his windpipe crushed when he began to expose Bill and Hillary Clinton to the American people. And, for Mochtar Riady's financial assistance during the 1992 campaign, President Bill Clinton issued an executive order in November, 1996 that nationalized 1/7th of the State of Utah, banning the mining of one of the world's largest deposits of low sulfur anthracite coal—and giving Mochtar Riady what amounted to a global monopoly on anthracite coal. That pretty much obligated American industrial plants—who, under EPA regulations, had to cut fossil fuel emissions—to buy coal from Indonesia.

And, although the Clintons are good at arguing innocence by challenging the GOP to prove they cut a deal with the Riadys or anyone else, the nationalizing of a chunk of Utah was nothing more than a quid pro quo. The United States, which possesses the world's largest coal reserves, should not be forced to buy coal from anyone—least of all our enemies. I guess that's what President Dwight D. Eisenhower meant when he said—in his farewell speech—that we needed to beware of the military-industrial complex. He should have warned us to watch out for the criminal wrongdoing of our presidents since they are financially beholden to the invisible princes of industry and barons of business who have strived, since 1920, to build a seamless, socialist one-world government.

Rumors that the Clinton-Gore Campaign took illegal contributions from Riady's LippoGroup in 1992, and from agents of the People's Liberation Army [PLA] in 1996, were confirmed by the Thompson Committee Report and by an even more thorough investigation launched by Washington attorney Larry Klayman who, at the time, headed the DC watchdog group, Judicial Watch. During the first campaign in the White house Coffees, Riady money appeared in the coffers of the Clinton-Gore Campaign, conveniently laundered by the Democrat National Committee.

The first confirmation that the People's Liberation Army of China was attempting to buy members of Congress came in February, 1992 when then Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi [D-CA], then a critic of the People's Republic of China [PRC], testified in a congressional hearing on China that the PLA, through Chinese-American intermediaries, were making contributions to Democratic Congressmen and Senators.

The Los Angeles Times reported the story on February 17, 1992 but it was ignored by the people who should have been paying attention—the Bush-41 Justice Department. Criminal acts by Congressmen and Senators were barely a blip on the ethics radar screen. No one seemed to care that Congress' newest constituency was America's deadliest enemy. Today, the Clintons rapport with the Muslim world, particularly Qatar, exceeds the relationship the Clintons had with the People's Republic of China and the People's Liberation Army. Qatar is the Muslim's world equivalent of Switzerland, where all of the despots of Islam hide their wealth from the day when they are overthrown and need to escape from their fiefdoms with just the clothes on their backs.

By 1996 the money was flowing like a raging river into the White House—directly from the PRC, through bundlers like Johnny Chung and John Huang, through straw donors like Maria Hsia and Charlie Trie, and through a series of 58 White House Coffees—each of which averaged $112 thousand. Most of those attending the Coffees were not American. The most notable Coffee was held on June 18, 1996 in the Map Room. It was dubbed the Kanchanalak Coffee—after PLA agent Paula Kanchanalak. (Kanchanalak would be indicted by a federal grand jury on 24 counts of election tampering, but would flee the country to China where she could not be extradited.

Turning the White House into a high-class hotel or a Beijing tourist coffeehouse for wealthy oriental donors may be tacky, but mere crassness in raising money has never been illegal in U.S. politics—and even if it was, it wouldn't have stopped either Bill or Hillary. Nor, for that matter, Al Gore, Jr. That much President Clinton knew when he decided to sip coffee with contributors or when he allowed so-called fat cats to spend the night in the Lincoln Bedroom, tapping them before or after admission for coffee or a sleepover since taking donor money in the offices, or residence, of the White House violates campaign election law. .

Although US campaign laws prohibit non-citizens from contributing to any election campaign in the United States, with criminal penalties for the donor and the recipient, it's legal for foreign entities and even foreign governments to donate money to "charitable" foundations and trusts—even if charity begins at home. I guess that's how the Clintons, who claim to have been nearly bankrupt when they left the White House suddenly amassed $1.84 billion to hide in Islamic Switzerland.
