Here is a compilation of comments from Tony Newbill on the NCCR post “The essential guide to Hillary’s high crimes, misdemeanors”. Newbill demonstrates Hillary Clinton indeed is as crooked and corrupt as a nefarious person can be.
Hillary More Crooked than Anyone Realizes
By Tony Newbill
Economic espionage is a problem that costs the American economy hundreds of billions of dollars per year and puts our national security at risk. While it is not a new threat, it is a growing one, and the theft attempts by our foreign competitors and adversaries are becoming more brazen and more varied in their approach. The FBI estimates that hundreds of billions of U.S. dollars are lost to foreign competitors every year. These foreign competitors deliberately target economic intelligence in advanced technologies and flourishing U.S. industries.
According to the Economic Espionage Act (EEA), Title 18 U.S.C., Section 1831, economic espionage is (1) whoever knowingly performs targeting or acquisition of trade secrets to (2) knowingly benefit any foreign government, foreign instrumentality, or foreign agent. And Theft of Trade Secrets, Title 18 U.S.C., Section 1832, is (1) whoever knowingly misappropriates trade secrets to (2) benefit anyone other than the owner.
Historically, economic espionage has been leveled mainly at defense-related and high-tech industries. But recent FBI cases have shown that no industry, large or small, is immune to the threat. Any company with a proprietary product, process, or idea can be a target; any unprotected trade secret is ripe for the taking by those who wish to illegally obtain innovations to increase their market share at a victim company’s expense.
The FBI’s role
Economic espionage falls under the Bureau’s Counterintelligence Program, designated by the FBI Director as the Bureau’s number two investigative priority—second only to terrorism.
In terms of our operational efforts, the FBI:
o Conducts an increasing number of investigations into suspected acts of economic espionage using our full arsenal of lawful tools and techniques.
o Takes part in the DOJ’s Intellectual Property Task Force, which seeks to support prosecutions in priority areas, promote innovation through heightened civil enforcement, achieve greater coordination among federal, state, and local law enforcement partners, and increase focus on international law enforcement efforts, including reinforcing relationships with key foreign partners and U.S. industry leaders.
o Participates in the multiagency National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center, which facilitates the exchange of intellectual property theft information, plans and coordinates joint domestic and international law enforcement operations, generates investigative leads from industry and the public, provides law enforcement training, and works closely with industry partners on intellectual property crime.
Beyond its investigative activity, the FBI works to counter the economic espionage threat by raising public awareness and … READ THE REST

BOMBSHELL REPORT: CROOKED HILLARY TOOK $100 MILLION FROM MIDDLE EAST REGIMES: “MASSIVE CONFLICTS OF INTEREST”
How much more of Hillary Clinton’s scandals can America take?
A bombshell report from The Daily Caller says the Clinton Foundation, a purported not-for-profit charity headed by Bill, Hillary and daughter Chelsea, has reportedly amassed a fortune from oil-rich mid east nations to the tune of $100 million.
National Security Analyst Patrick Poole says the amount of cash donated to the Clintons is “simply unprecedented.”
“These regimes are buying access. You’ve got the Saudis. You’ve got the Kuwaitis, Oman, Qatar and the UAE. There are massive conflicts of interest. It’s beyond comprehension,” Poole told The Daily Caller.
A Daily Caller News Foundation investigation reveals that Bill and Hillary Clinton received at least $100 million from autocratic Persian Gulf states and their leaders, potentially undermining Democratic presidential candidate Hillary’s claim she can carry out independent Middle East policies.
The benefits for mid east oil producers amount to billions of dollars in oil trade, and as you might expect, Hillary Clinton is more than happy to oblige – at the expense of American energy companies and … READ THE REST (BOMBSHELL REPORT: CROOKED HILLARY TOOK $100 MILLION FROM MIDDLE EAST REGIMES: “MASSIVE CONFLICTS OF INTEREST”; By MAC SLAVO; The Daily Sheeple; 5/12/16)

The Clintons: is the Oregon standoff really about uranium?
(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)
Note: This article was written before the Oregon shootout in which one man was killed and another wounded.
Is uranium at the heart of the Oregon Malheur federal-protestor standoff? That’s the question I’m asking. It isn’t a flippant question.
I realize there are many other issues swirling around this event. The Hammonds, the Bundys, militias, the feds, cattle grazing on federal lands, federal land grabs, and so on. This article isn’t meant to take apart those matters.
It’s meant to follow up on my previous article, in which I present a circumstantial case for the Clintons’ heavy involvement in a scheme that’s transferred 20% of US uranium production to Putin and Russia. And the key company in that piece is Uranium One. Remember the name. It’s apparently a major clue in what I’m about to discuss.
I also want to say … READ THE REST (The Clintons: is the Oregon standoff really about uranium? By Jon Rappoport; Jon Rappoport’s Blog; 1/27/16)

Assign Special Prosecutor 2 Clinton Investigation DOJ holds conflict of interest
Created by S.Z. on May 10, 2016
Should the FBI move to prosecute Hillary Clinton due to her use of a private email/server, a special prosecutor should be assigned. The DOJ employs a sizeable number of individuals who've donated to the Clinton Campaign. Many of them have donated the maximum allowable amount of $2,700 -(http://www.opensecrets.org/) Loretta Lynch is affiliated with Hillary Clinton via Bill Clinton; who appointed her the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York in 1999. Objectively speaking, Loretta Lynch and her history with the Clintons could potentially cause a conflict of interest. To allow Loretta Lynch and the DOJ to handle this is not in the best interests of the American People. We, The American People, demand that this case is handled in a manner in which true justice is the priority.

Bill Clinton was frequent flier on pedophile’s private jet ‘Lolita Express’
Newly released flight logs show former US president Bill Clinton flew on convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous “Lolita Express” jet at least 26 times.
Initial reports in January suggested Clinton was on board the billionaire’s Boeing 727 on “only”11 occasions, but documents obtained by Fox News show he flew with Epstein more than two dozen times.

Are Hillary Clinton’s China ties behind a dropped espionage investigation?
· It’s always a possibility that cases are dropped because of national security concerns regarding other operations that are ongoing, but sometimes the U.S. government makes decisions based purely on political considerations, especially when it comes to China
Few Americans could fathom the notion that the United States is so indebted to China that one of Beijing’s spies could get away with espionage – especially with an White House in love with espionage prosecutions. But that might be the only reasonable explanation for the Obama administration’s decision to pass on prosecuting a State Department contractor who was allegedly paid thousands of dollars to someone believed to be a Chinese agent seeking information on Americans.
According to Fox News, a November 2014 FBI affidavit that was filed in U.S. district court in Maryland indicates that the FBI launched a probe into the matter but that the Justice Department eventually decided not to prosecute.
The affidavit shows that the FBI investigated the contractor after she admitted she was in contact with individuals she believed were Chinese intelligence officers. Fox News further reported:
The affidavit from agent Timothy S. Pappa states the translator, Xiaoming Gao, was paid “thousands of dollars to provide information on U.S. persons and a U.S. government employee.”
According to the documents, she admitted these meetings took place in hotel rooms in China for years, where she reported on her “social contacts” in the U.S. to an individual who went by the name of “Teacher Zhao.”
The affidavit, which was quite detailed, even says that translator lived briefly “for free” with a State Department employee who held a top-secret clearance and at the time designed high-security embassies, including the U.S. compound in Islamabad, Pakistan (which is a client state of China’s).
The State Department employee was not named in the affidavit, Fox News reported, but he initially told the FBI he had not discussed his job with Gao, only to later change that statement.
The documents also note that Gao told the FBI during interviews in 2013 that she once informed “Teacher Zhao” about travel plans regarding an American and ethnic …
But sometimes the U.S. government makes decisions based purely on political considerations, especially when it comes to China, and here is where this unusual decision deserves more scrutiny:
— In recent days International Business Times reported that Hillary Clinton, as secretary of state (and head of the State Department), threw tech company Cisco “a lifeline” in 2009 shortly after the company had undergone a high profile Senate hearing regarding its Chinese operations. It seems Cisco had a large part in developing China’s “Great Firewall that helps China’s authoritarian regime censor information and surveil its citizens.”
… as IBT noted:
Cisco was honored as a finalist for the State Department’s award for “outstanding corporate citizenship, innovation and democratic principles.” The next year, the company won the award. While the honors were for the company’s work in the Middle East, they gave Cisco a well-timed opportunity to change the subject and present itself as a champion of human rights.
The company’s ties to Clinton?
What Clinton did not say at the State Department award ceremonies was that Cisco had been pumping money into her family’s foundation. Though the foundation will not release an exact timeline of the contributions, records reviewed by International Business Times show that Cisco had by December 2008 donated from $500,000 to $1 million to the foundation.
There are other potential Clinton-China ties as well. In March CBS News reported that a Chinese firm with ties to North Korea had donated heavily to the Clinton Foundation:
Rilin Enterprises- pledged $2 million in 2013 to the Clinton Foundation’s endowment. The company is a privately-held Chinese construction and trade conglomerate and run by billionaire Wang Wenliang, who is also a delegate to the Chinese parliament. Public records show the firm has spent $1.4 million since 2012, lobbying Congress and the State Department. The firm owns a strategic port along the border with North Korea and was also one of the contractors that built the Chinese embassy in Washington.
— Then there is the little-known 100,000 Strong Foundation, which was launched by Clinton at the State Department during her final weeks there. The program focuses on sending American students abroad to “study” in China, a program Clinton touted as essential to improving future relations between both countries.
During her tenure as the nation’s chief diplomat, Hillary Clinton seems to have had China’s support – and China’s back.

Hillary and the Espionage Act of 1917
Last week I asked about Hillary Clinton’s email practices, Is it Espionage? Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton insisted that she “had broken no rules” to conduct government business through the use of a private email service in lieu of the U.S. government’s unclassified system, the Non-classified Internet Protocol (IP) Router Network (abbreviated as NIPRNet) and the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet). These are a system of interconnected computer networks used by the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of State to transmit classified information.
The Democratic Presidential candidate under investigation by the FBI has disclosed that her aides had deleted more than 30,000 emails that she deemed personal. 30,000 emails printed out represents a stack of 60 reams of paper, a stack 10 feet tall. …
Attorneys fresh out of law school are familiar with the legal issue known as “spoliation of evidence.” When parties fail to produce relevant evidence within their span of control, evidence which they are otherwise naturally expected to possess, the U.S. legal system allows and even mandates that unfavorable presumptions be drawn against them. So when some item of relevant evidence -- whether documents, physical objects or data relevant to an ongoing legal matter -- is destroyed, discarded or modified in some way, the U.S. legal system allows us to presume that the missing evidence was unfavorable to that party and allows us to draw conclusions accordingly. …
Spoliation of evidence is prohibited by an array of laws and regulations. Also, anyone who destroys relevant evidence or assists in such destruction is subject to criminal prosecution, civil fines, tort liability, exclusion of testimony and dismissal of claims, as well as adverse evidentiary inferences. Intentional destruction or negligent loss of evidence suggests that the party in possession believed that it was harmful to them, and that consciousness of guilt led them to destroy, hide or lose it.
… Emails now released reveal that her State Department minions were directed to strip off the classification headers and footers off classified documents and input those documents, or even essential information that would make the information classified. Whether she directed others to do it or she performed the action herself, the FBI has reported thousands of cases exist where classified information was moved to an unsecured email server.
Seventy years ago, senior State Department official Alger Hiss found a way to remove classified information from State Department offices. Hillary Clinton found a way to remove classified information from State Department offices. The essence of espionage is to get classified documents out of a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, a SCIF, and into the hands of “someone not authorized to receive them.”

Hedge fund megadonors capitalize on offshore opportunities
On the list of the largest U.S. companies by market value, those in the $30 billion to $45 billion range are household names: Capital One Financial, DirecTV, Phillips 66, Yahoo.
But far fewer people know much, if anything, about Citadel Multi-Strategy Equities Master Fund Ltd., with a gross asset value of $33 billion, or Elliott International, L.P., at $30.8 billion, or AQR Style Premia Master Account, valued at $16.6 billion. All are hedge funds organized under the laws of the Cayman Islands.
They’re also just a handful of the funds under the control of some of the biggest political donors in the nation: Kenneth C. Griffin, Paul Singer and Cliff Asness.
(The fund once managed by George Soros, another major industry donor, is now a family office and has no SEC Form ADV on file.)
The release of the Panama Papers has brought fresh reminders of the stunning amount of wealth held offshore, but that’s a world these donors and their firms navigate routinely as part of a rarefied investment community far more wealthy and sophisticated than the market to which most people have access.
All told, the value of their 151 hedge funds is as high as $390 billion. Most of that is in the funds based overseas, mostly in the Cayman Islands. Of the 151 funds in the firms’ SEC reports, 67 are organized under the laws of the Caymans, where the firms manage some $282 billion in current asset value. About $103 billion of the wealth is held in Delaware-based hedge funds.
A quarter of the funds report greater than 50 percent ownership by non-U.S. investors (which could include offshore holding companies and other entities), and foreign investors own at least part of 41 percent of the funds. By far, most of the funds catering to these offshore entities are organized in the Cayman Islands.
In the presidential contest, hedge fund managers have played an enormous role in plumping up the coffers of several candidates’ super PACs. Sussman, for instance, who has given out more than $7 million this cycle in all, has contributed $4 million to Priorities USA Action, the group backing presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Sussman and Simons combined have given Priorities $16 million in the past two cycles. (Priorities supported President Barack Obama’s second campaign for the White House before it pivoted to Clinton.)
