What Did Candidate Clinton Know, and When Did She Know It?

losercrybaby-copyIn January of 2016, when Hillary  Clinton was a private citizen, persons in her presidential campaign coordinated with a group of people, one of whom was in contact with the Chinese ambassador, who wanted

to have an informal, private, off the record get together with a few of us to discuss the next year and the current state of US-China affairs. He asked me to host a social meal at my house in the next month. He was fairly insistent and indicated that he wanted to pass along some perspectives. [emphasis added to quotes]

At the time, this “working” group, Clinton’s “shadow foreign policy team,” included

senior former officials who have more frequent interaction with the campaign leadership and Clinton herself. Many of these advisers aren’t publicly affiliated with the campaign because they have leadership roles with organizations that have not endorsed any candidate for president. …

Clinton, Sullivan and campaign chairman John Podesta [were] in regular contact with former National Security Advisor Tom Donilon, former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. Other former top officials include Michelle Flournoy, who was undersecretary of defense for policy; Kurt Campbell, who was assistant secretary of state for East Asia and the Pacific; and Nicholas Burns, who was undersecretary of state for political affairs. One source close to the campaign described the interactions as “studiously informal but regular.”

Campbell is the person who was in touch with the Chinese ambassador. The news of this potential meeting came from an email chain reported by Wikileaks, which obtained email records from Clinton campaign leader John Podesta.

Did this “chili and cornbread” cookout take place? Was Clinton there? Was Podesta? Not known at the moment, apparently. Will the mainstream media ask? Will they investigate Clinton and her associates for their potentially illegal contact with the (Red) Chinese ambassador? What exactly was discussed in communications between the ambassador and Clinton’s supporters, campaign aids, and “informal” campaign “shadow foreign policy team?” Will Trump ask the FBI to begin an investigation into these potentially illegal contacts? Will Clinton be called before Congress to be questioned?

Surely the mainstream media will give this as much, if not more, scrutiny than was applied to former National Security Adviser, retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn’s conversations with the Russian ambassador. After all, Flynn’s conversations took place after the election, when he served on President Trump’s transition team. All transition teams speak with foreign leaders and their representatives, for obvious reasons–to smooth the transition to the new government. As Trump was then president-elect, he held at least quasi-authority as the incoming president, as did his transition team. However, the same cannot be said for losing candidate Clinton.

What did Clinton know and when did she know it? Did her campaign staff illegally (per the Logan Act) interfere with Obama’s foreign policy, with regard to China? What did Clinton or her team, who expected to win the election, potentially promise China under a Clinton administration?

Enquiring minds want to know.  While Congress is investigating potential links between Trump’s campaign and the Russians, they should equally investigate potential links between Clinton’s campaign and the Red Chinese.

    Some JERK named milo sort of a greek name, peripherally attached to Breitbart and by connectivity obvious to the most casual lefty, connected to President Trump himself has been found to have made a video espousing,
    well I will not even type it.
    It’s on Drudge.
    You can expect a brutal press attack on President Trump based on this “extremely fortunate” timing. It is kind of aimed at his new travel ban order and by a perversity only OFA could dream up.
    As far as I am concerned, jerk milo is finished in politics.
    One could try to explain why he said what he said.
    I don’t care.
    Just begone.

      • Apparently George Takei was also molested as a child and has joked about it, saying he thought his molester was good looking. So will he also be fired and denounced?

    • Oh, yes. They have already mentioned in my local paper that somehow Milo is connected to the WH, through Breitbart and Bannon, although I seriously doubt that either Trump or Bannon has ever even met Milo. Six degrees of Milo, I suppose. Guilt by specious or spurious association. The guy is a “flamer” in many senses of the word and he would probably be the first to agree. What’s interesting, and if scientists were not subject to political correctness strictures in academia, somebody would probably study this–what’s interesting is the sheer number of male homosexuals who were molested as children. I remember reading and quoting from a writer at American Thinker, who is gay and who blames his upbringing for his unhappy gay life. iirc, he was adopted by lesbians, and he’s against gays adopting, for that very reason. BUT we are all supposed to believe that being gay is an immutable accident of birth. It’s an inborn characteristic, just like being born black or female, and so gays deserve protection as minorities. iow, gays are born, not made. BUT evidence to the contrary is everywhere and it would be easily proven scientifically, if not for the gay lobby and political correctness that prevents studies from developing the statistics that would prove the point.

      Have you noticed the parallelism with the things they’re accusing Trump of versus the things Obama and Hillary were accused of? Now we have a pedophilia angle.

      • There are several very interesting factoids in this story: http://ibankcoin.com/zeropointnow/2017/01/17/as-project-veritas-exposes-disruptj20-plot-to-cause-inauguration-chaos-deplorables-out-organizer-as-potential-pizzagate-pedo/

        It’s an older story, but note these allegations: One of the guys recently ARRESTED for his part in the plan to disrupt the ball before Trump’s inauguration (with acid in the air vents of the building) has written what sound like pro-pedophilia comments on social media–exactly what Milo has been accused of and fired for. Not excusing either, but WHY THE DOUBLE STANDARD? Second point, this guy was videotaped by James O’Keefe, which led to his arrest, at the infamous Comet Ping Pong pizza parlor. Are we supposed to believe it’s only coincidence? A pro-pedophilia leftist. Pizzagate. I can’t read all this stuff, but apparently he’s also been allegedly involved in a support system for child runaways. How convenient. Easy pickings, some might think. The thing is–if Six Degrees of Connection is applicable to Trump, then why not to Clinton and Obama and other leftist people AND groups that support the likes of this guy?

            “If I wanted to work as an actor I had to keep it a secret,” Takei told News Corp last year. “Back then I couldn’t marry a white person —

              Inauguration Singer Jackie Evancho Has Already Turned on Trump
              @The Wrap …just keep singin’ sweetie…it will WORK OUT FINE!

              Jackie Evancho, the 16-year-old “America’s Got Talent” star who performed the national anthem at Donald Trump’s inauguration, has spoken out against the president for his decision to Rescind Obama Administration-era protections for Transgender public school students.

              Evancho has an Older Transgender Sister, 18-year-old Juliet, who is currently Suing…. “HER”……. Pittsburgh school district for RE-fusing
              to Allow trans students to…. DO DO WHAT EVER THEY WANT!!!
              & use “identity – correSPOND-ing” ….. bathrooms.

              Today (Wednesday, Feb, 22), Trump reversed the Obama Administration’s guidance that public schools nationwide should allow transgender students to use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity. ….JUST PERFECT …. WTP say STAND in LINE!!!

              • Trump didn’t “reverse” anything, nor did TRUMP take any “rights” away from anyone. The COURTS ruled back in August that it couldn’t go through. But of course, the media LIE!!!! It’s “fake news.”

                “A federal judge has blocked the Obama administration from enforcing new guidelines that were intended to expand restroom access for transgender students across the country.

                Judge Reed O’Connor of the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Texas said in a 38-page ruling, which he said should apply nationwide, that the government had not complied with federal law when it issued “directives which contradict the existing legislative and regulatory text.” …”

                The “guidelines” were already invalid and moot. The court has RULED. The courts invalidated the “guidance.”

                It’s ILLEGAL and is NOT what the LAW says. No “protection” was taken away. PROTECTION was RESTORED to all the females who didn’t want males invading their private “safe” spaces, and vice versa. What sort of country and Constitution would this be if one person’s “rights” supersede EVERYONE ELSE’S? The confused “transgendered” are uncomfortable so they DEMAND the “right” to ease their own pain by violating the COMFORT, privacy, and rights of everyone else! What if I believe I’m president? Will they let me live in the White House, so I can be comfortable in my delusion?

        • Gee. What a surprise! Fake news totally forgets to mention that it was a COURT in AUGUST last year that ruled Obama’s “guidance” to be illegal and unenforceable. Not only was it illegal, but it also did not follow the federal guidelines required to put such “guidelines” into effect. I believe it’s also FAKE NEWS to say that “federal law will still prohibit discrimination against students based on their gender or sexual orientation.” That is simply NOT TRUE and the reporter could easily fact check it by looking at the LAW. EEOC under Obama TRIED to say that gender identity and sexual orientation equal SEX discrimination based upon “gender stereotypes,” but that’s NOT LAW. It’s the Obama administration’s FALSE interpretation, which has already been ruled illegal by the court in the bathroom case. https://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/23/us/transgender-bathroom-access-guidelines-blocked-by-judge.html

          From the ruling:

          “It cannot be disputed that the plain meaning of the term sex as used in § 106.33 when it was enacted by DOE following passage of Title IX meant the biological and anatomical differences between male and female students as determined at their birth.”

          CASE CLOSED.

  4. I am pretty bored with the subject of press attacks on President Trump.
    They are going to carry on for years.
    I will instead write a post about WHY YOU SHOULD NOT DOWNLOAD MUSIC FROM THE NET.
    It’s not about the legality.
    It doesn’t sound any good.
    I am, by profession, an audio design engineer and I design recording equipment for major recording studios and film scorers. That’s what I do.
    There are reasons why digital audio, particularly net downloaded digital audio sounds crap and I am going to try to explain them in an understandable and hopefully entertaing way.
    I can say, unlike breitbart or before its news, you won’t hear this anywhere else.
    We sometimes hear awesome music on this site, so this is my bit.

    • Sounds interesting. (No pun intended. Sounds. Get it?) Anyway, I would be interested in understanding why it sounds like crap. Carry on!

  5. I love me some Ted!!! 😀

    Now that’s REALLY an interesting switch. A female basketball player who is discriminated against and bullied throughout her career for being HETEROsexual.

    “Wiggins, a four-time All-American at Stanford, asserts she was targeted for harassment from the time she was drafted by Minnesota because she is heterosexual and a nationally popular figure, of whom many other players were jealous.

    “Me being heterosexual and straight, and being vocal in my identity as a straight woman was huge,” Wiggins said. “I would say 98 percent of the women in the WNBA are gay women. It was a conformist type of place. There was a whole different set of rules they (the other players) could apply.

    “There was a lot of jealousy and competition, and we’re all fighting for crumbs,” Wiggins said. “The way I looked, the way I played – those things contributed to the tension.

    “People were deliberately trying to hurt me all of the time. I had never been called the B-word so many times in my life than I was in my rookie season. I’d never been thrown to the ground so much. The message was: ‘We want you to know we don’t like you.’ “

    There is no published data on the percentage of WNBA players who are gay. In a 10-team league that employs 120 players annually, at least 12 current and former players have come out publicly in various forms of media.

    Wiggins said she was disheartened by a culture in the WNBA that encouraged women to look and act like men in the NBA. …”
