Corruption, Cronyism and Treason – Anatomy of a Crooked Deal

President Trump has been accused of treason by the Democrats, their media allies, and some quisling Republicans.

They accuse the Trump campaign of colluding with Russia to “hack” the election. They repeat Russians “hacked” the election like a mantra.

Four years after they crapped on Mitt Romney when he called the Russians our most dangerous rival. He was ridiculed as hopelessly out of touch with his Cold War thinking.

The same Cold War with the Soviets they tried very hard to lose and failed because of Ronald Reagan and many other patriotic Americans.

Now the Cold War is back with a vengeance because they have to blame something for keeping a vicious, corrupt, and possibly insane old woman out of the White House.

Real crimes and treasonous activity that has been investigated, documented and published in print and electronic media are being ignored.

When you bring this up with Democrats they will squint their beady eyes an say with a sneer. “Fake News.”

So with that in mind, the rest of this article is sourced from the New York Times – which for Democrats is the Bible.

Here is a Cliff Notes version of the NY Times article below with an assist from Wikipedia…

Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal By JO BECKER and MIKE McINTIRE APRIL 23, 2015

This is the story of how control of 20% of our most strategic resource, uranium, was given to Russia and the anti-Christ himself, Vladimir Putin.

This tale of corruption, cronyism, and treason starts in 2005 with a private jet landing on a landing strip in Almaty, Kazakhstan Tthe location of the world’s richest uranium mines.

Descending from that plane are Frank Giustra, owner of a Canadian mining company called UrAsia Energy Ltd. and former president of the United States, Bill Clinton.

They met with the current despot/dictator of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev.

A few days later UrAsia Energy Ltd. acquired stakes in three uranium mines controlled by Kazakhstan’s state-run Kazatomprom.

A few months later, Mr. Giustra donates $31.3 million to the scandal-ridden fund/money laundering scheme posing as a charity, the Clinton Foundation.

Did you think Bill Clinton would go to a desolate place like Almaty, Kazakhstan without a payoff?

In 2007 South African mining company Uranium One merges with UrAsia in a deal estimated at $3.5 billion, keeping the name Uranium One.

Exit Frank Giustra with a cool $45 million in his bank account.

Enter Canadian investor Ian Telfer, as the new chairman.

And The Podesta Group to lobby on behalf of Uranium One.

You remember John Podesta, the Chairman for the Clinton campaign.

He fell for the phishing hack any ten-year-old could see a mile away and gave Guccifer access to his email account.

Eventually, emails damaging to Hillary and the Democratic Party find their way into the Wikileaks revelations and they are plastered all over the news and the internet.

Apparently, the exposure of Clinton corruption was the Russian’s fault according to the Democrats, despite the fact they have no ties with Guccifer and Wikileaks.

But there are certainly links between Podesta, the lobbyist for Uranium One and Chairman of Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign.

As Deep Throat said to Bob Woodward during the Watergate scandal, “Follow the money.”

Uranium One proceeds to gobble up assets in the United States including more than 38,000 acres of uranium exploration sites in four Western states, the acquisition of the Energy Metals Corporation and its uranium holdings in Wyoming, Texas, and Utah. Plus a uranium mill in Utah.

Fast forward to 2009 through 2013.

Telfer, Uranium One’s chairman, makes four donations totaling $2.35 million to his family’s charity, the Fernwood Foundation, to the Clinton Foundation.

The Clintons publicly disclose none of these contributions despite Hillary’s commitment to do so when she became Secretary of State.

The Russians had a problem; despite the vastness of Russia and its wealth of resources it had a dearth of Uranium.

But they have friends in high places, like Hillary Clinton who was Secretary of State through 2012.

June 2009 – the Russian uranium mining company ARMZ Uranium Holding Co. – part of Rosatom, Russia’s atomic energy agency – acquired 16.6% of shares in Uranium One

June 2010 – ARMZ increases its stake in Uranium One to 51%, requiring the approval of the US Committee on Foreign Investments run by Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

January 2013 – ARMZ takes complete control of Uranium One with the approval of the Committee on Foreign Investments.

December 2013 – Rosatom, Russia’s state-run atomic energy agency takes over Uranium One. Russia now has uranium-mining empire stretching from Central Asia to the American West.

Rosatom becomes one of the world’s largest uranium producers and anti-Christ Vladimir Putin runs much of the world’s uranium supply chain, including control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States.

Dr. Evil would be envious.

Canadian tax records reveal that Telfer donated millions of dollars more to the Clinton Foundation when Hillary’s State Department’s Committee on Foreign Investments was approving these transactions.

Fernwood Foundation donations included $1 million in 2009, $250,000 in 2010, $600,000 in 2011 and $500,000 in 2012 – Hillary’s last year as Secretary of State.

But wait, there’s more…

This does not include the estimated $1.3 million dollars and $5.6 million dollars in undisclosed donations given by Telfer to the Clinton Foundation.

As a major shareholder of Uranium One, Telfer made out like a bandit with the generous dividends the Russians gave him.

And don’t forget it wasn’t his money he donated but the money of the fools who gave to his “charity.”

When I grow up, I want to have my own charity.

Oh yeah, Bill Clinton spoke in Moscow in June 2010, just when the Russians grabbed a majority stake in Uranium One.

A $500,000 fee was paid to Bill Clinton by Renaissance Capital, a Russian investment bank with ties to the Kremlin.

The Russians cannot believe their good luck; if Russians did what the Clintons did, they would spend the rest of their lives in a rat-infested jail cell with one meal a day of stale bread.

Or as Sergei Kiriyenko, Rasatom’s chief executive said,
“Few could have imagined in the past that we would own 20 percent of U.S. reserves.”

This comes at a time when the US gets 20% of its electricity from nuclear plants and can only produce 20% of the uranium need to run these plants.

This is just the tip of the iceberg, typical of the sleazy backroom deals where corruption, cronyism, and treason converge.
