Out of the Box: The dirty tricks of the Hillary Clinton!

wikileaks-hillary

This is another batch of the leaks happening from WikiLeaks from the PodestaFiles. There been days upon days with new leaks that has happen all through October. Been hard to follow it all and the intelligence you can gather from it in the end, would be how a political machine and election procedures are happening for career politicians like Hillary Clinton. There been some scalps and misgivings in the leak.

Today is a brief spell into the Clinton Foundation first, secondly will be little about the surrogates of Clinton, third on Policy, fourth is on E-Mail Scandal and last Media. These are well-known territory, but I will let the leaks speak for themselves.

  1. On Clinton Foundation:

“Guys – Given the story yesterday about pay equity at the State Department, I wanted to flag something that came out of our research on pay equity at the Foundation. There are huge discrepancies, and it wouldn’t surprise me if they went here next. See a summary below from Karuna” [Ian Mandel to Tony Carrk and Robert Mook “Subject: Fwd: Equal Pay – Foundation” 24th February 2015].

Equal Pay problems in Clinton Foundation:

10 out of the 19 members (52%) of the Clinton Foundation’s Leadership Team, as listed on BHCCF’s website, are women, however only 3 out of the highest paid 11 employees (27%) are women.  The highest paid men average a salary of $294,157.50, while the highest paid women average a salary of $181,576.66, over $100,000 lower than the men. [Clinton Foundation Website, last accessed 12/10/14; Clinton Foundation 990, 2012; Clinton Foundation 990, 2013].

  1. Surrogates:

Use Howard Dean as Surrogate:

“Just watched him on Meet. At this time with Warren and Biden floating around he is the single best voice to speak about HRC as a surrogate. He is measured, thoughtful, talks substance not process, has run himself, the press likes him and he leans left. He was terrific this morning. I strongly suggest you get him out there more” [Gordon Griffin to John Podesta: “Subject: Howard Dean” on 05.08.2015].

Surrogate need advice:

“On April 8, I have gotten hoodwinked into doing Squawk Box on CNBC for 2 hours as a host. I may drag Al along with me. I know I will get tons of questions on the economy, the current fiscal situation, monetary policy, and of course why I’m supporting Hillary. I can’t just say I love her, although I might. What I would like to do is give some personal examples I have as to her effectiveness. But I will also need to comment on her fiscal plans and compare those to Bernie’s and whoever is left in the republican race at that time. Is it possible to get someone to send me some data and research so I can be as persuasive as possible, Thanks so much. Erskine” [Erskine sent to John Podesta on 7th March 2016].

Turkish funding of DNC:

“John, heard this second hand but more than once. Seems Erdogan faction is making substantial investments in U.S. to counter opposition (CHP, Kurds, Gulenists etc.) outreach to policymakers and USG. Am told that the Erdogan crew also tries to make inroads via donations to Democratic candidates, including yours. Two names that you should be aware of are *Mehmet Celebi* and *Ali Cinar*. Happy to elaborate on the phone, provided you are not shopping at the liquor store” [Michael Werz sent to John Podesta “Subject: Flagging Turkish campaign donations” 19th August 2015].

  1. Policy:

On Cadillac tax:

Very few if any rank and file will be touched by $250K and above. I do think your point about them understanding its repeal is important…so if she says repeal, pauses and says I need some kind of pay for that still relieves this burden on the middle class and therefore folks making over $250K will take the hit…maybe the way to do it? Of course I understand she still has this decision to make” [Nikki Budzinski to Amanda Renteria “Subject: Re: Copy of HRC Memo on Cadillac Tax” on the 25th September 2015].

  1. E-Mail Scandal:

CNN: Email Scandal:

“Hey Nick, I’m writing a story about the formal request Chairman’s Gowdy office sent to David Kendall today asking that Sec. Clinton hand over her email server to the State Dept IG or another independent third party. I’d like to know whether the secretary plans to do so and if she has any response to the letter. I’m on deadline now” [Chris Frates sent to Nick Merrill “Subject: CNN deadline question” 20th March 2015].

Politico: Email Scandal.

One quick follow up– no fingerprints. As you said, there wasn’t a hell of a lot you guys could do after the Schmidt story — the emails were already deleted… etc. What action — OTR — did u advise. What were the decision points. Cheers/Thrush. Glenn Thrush” [Glenn Thrush to John Podesta “Subject: sorry to bother” 5th October 2015].

  1. Cozy relationship with Media:

Yahoo Interview:

“Well, I know you had a good weekend! We’ve been working with the campaign folks to reschedule my interview with Secretary Clinton. I wanted to write you about some of the metrics that we are getting and let you know through placement on Facebook we can guarantee 1.5 million views in addition to Yahoo engagement which has been close to 1 million for my political interviews. I’d also like to do a separate piece of business through social media along the lines of “10 things you don’t know about Hillary Clinton” that would showcase her personality and has a lot of viral potential. I know there is a lot of demands on her time, but we have been waiting patiently to schedule something and I’m sure we’ve been driving the campaign staff crazy, but the reach and engagement will be significant and I’m very much looking forward to having the opportunity to talk to her. I have been assured the campaign wants this as well. Can you help make this happen? I’d really appreciate your help” (Katie Couric to John Podesta “Subject: Re: Note from Katie Couric” 22nd February 2016).

I hope you find these leaks interesting, because they say a lot about the activity and acts of the Clinton Campaign, the relationship they have and how the Democratic Party works. We can see how they together with all Surrogates, Media and others are working. This is important together with internal reports on the payment structure in Clinton Foundation proves the legitimate claims of following old-stereotype payment of men over woman. That deserves to be scrutinized, maybe be another man than me. I am sure that Hannity looks into as we speak (joking). Let’s be clear, this is another day with the same drama, as there aren’t as I’ve seen with today’s leaks many explosives inside the Clinton Campaign team. Still, interesting in the perspective of how they work on the inside. Maybe we will see next time for some more UFO’s and Bernie Sanders bashing Mails again? Peace.

A quick look into the leaked DNC report of 2015 on Donald Trump

Donald Trump 1990s People's Cover

“The Press Are Liars. They’re Terrible People.” “‘The press are liars. They’re terrible people … Not all of them, but many of them.’ Trump also bragged that he knows how to get past the media: ‘I have millions of people on Facebook and Twitter,’ which he likened to ‘owning the New York Times without the losses.’” – Donald Trump [New York Magazine, 6/12/15]” (DNC, P: 203, 2015).

This is written regard to the leak that was from the Democratic Party and their plan to counter Donald Trump, also shows the level of donor funding from certain famous people into the DNC. All of that shouldn’t be surprised, but the juiciest part of it we’re the pages where the DNC had built around the GOP most likely nominee Donald Trump. Certain things been said before, but I will take the pieces that are the best from this, of other people do the same; than it is because the systematic and also not news anymore, as the Trump doesn’t care about what he really says or pledges; as they are all just in the moment flashes of his humanity, that the most important is that he is the centre of attention. Something he has been in his own mind since he built the Trump Tower in Manhattan, New York. But now go back into… the matter at hand, the December planning document from the DNC!

Donald Trump Said He Would Rescind The Dream Act Executive Order And Deport Entire Families Of Immigrants, Even If Some Family Members Were Legally Documented. CHUCK TODD: “What do you do about the DACA order now? The Dream Act, however you want to refer to it. The executive order that is—” DONALD TRUMP: “The executive order gets rescinded. One good thing about … One good thing about—” TODD: “You’ll rescind the Dream Act executive order—” TRUMP: “You’re going to have to. …  We have to make a whole new set of standards. And when people come in, they have to come in legally—” TODD: So you’re going to split up families? … You’re going to deport children—”   TRUMP: “Chuck. No, no. We’re going to keep the families together. We have to keep the families together.” TODD: “But you’re going to keep them together out—” TRUMP: “But they have to go. But they have to go. … They have to go. Chuck, we either have a country or we don’t have a country.” [Meet The Press, NBC, 8/16/15]” (DNC, P: 23, 2015).

Trump debate quote CNN

From the man ‘making America Great again’ did this in his past to save his own skin:

““Two of developer Donald Trump’s operations, the Taj Mahal Casino Resort and the Trump Shut-tle airline, announced Friday they are eliminating a total of about 370 jobs as part of streamlining efforts. The cutbacks come amid speculation that Trump has overextended himself with rapid expansion into the airline and Atlantic City, N.J., casino industries. The Taj Mahal Casino Resort said it is cutting 300 jobs, mostly in its culinary section, less than two months after it opened. In a separate announcement, a spokesman said the Trump Shuttle, which serves air passengers on the busy Boston-New York-Washington, D.C. route, had furloughed about 70 of its roughly 1,000 employees.” [Associated Press, 5/25/90]” (…) “The post-summer casino slowdown and a weak gaming market spell 500 layoffs at Donald Trump’s Taj Mahal Casino Resort, a top Trump official said in a published report.  Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino will also end up with 150 fewer workers, the official said. The casino industry traditionally lays off employees after the busy summer months. Few casinos have been able to turn a profit or boost gross gaming revenues this year, due largely to competition from the Taj Mahal, which opened in April.” [Newsday, 9/20/90]” (…) “Nearly 200 employees were laid off Monday at the Trump Castle Casino Resort in a money-saving move. Casino president Roger Wagner, who was hired away from rival Claridge Casino Hotel earlier this month to cut costs at Trump Castle, said the layoffs of 190 workers came across the board at the management and executive levels. The layoffs leave the casino with about 3,400 employees, Wagner said. Wagner said the declining economy and flat gaming market prompted the need to cut costs.” [Associated Press, 1/29/91]” (…) ”Marc Lasry, chairman and CEO of Avenue Capital Group, was given final approval Wednesday by New Jersey casino regulators to control the Atlantic City casino company that was founded by Donald Trump. Avenue, which specializes in distressed investments, won the company in a bankruptcy battle last year, and is the largest shareholder at nearly 22 percent. Trump, the real estate magnate and reality television star, owns 10 percent. … The company has been paying down debt and cutting jobs since the new owners took over last July. The sale next month of Trump Marina Hotel Casino to a Texas firm will bring its debt to near $300 million from its current level of $332 million, Griffin said. … Trump Entertainment Resorts has cut 600 jobs since last fall and now has a work force for their three casinos of about 8,000 employees, Griffin said.” [Associated Press, 4/6/11]” (DNC, P: 14-15, 2015).

Hard to spot the difference:

“HUGH HEWITT: “Are you familiar with General Soleimani?” DONALD TRUMP: “Yes, but go ahead, give me a little, go ahead, tell me.” HUGH HEWITT: “He runs the Quds Forces.” DONALD TRUMP: “Yes, okay, right.” HUGH HEWITT: “Do you expect his behavior…” DONALD TRUMP: “The Kurds, by the way, have been horribly mistreated by …” HUGH HEWITT: “No, not the Kurds, the Quds Forces, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Quds Forces.” DONALD TRUMP: “Yes, yes.” HUGH HEWITT: “…is the bad guys.” DONALD TRUMP: “Right.” HUGH HEWITT: “Do you expect his behavior to change as a result…” DONALD TRUMP: “Oh, I thought you said Kurds, Kurds.” HUGH HEWITT: “No, Quds.” DONALD TRUMP: “Oh, I’m sorry, I thought you said Kurds, because I think the Kurds have been poorly treated by us, Hugh. Go ahead.” HUGH HEWITT: “Agreed. So Soleimani runs the Quds Forces. Do you expect his behavior is going to change as a result of this deal with Iran?” DONALD TRUMP: “I think that Iran right now is in the driver’s seat to do whatever they want to do. I think what’s happening with Iran is, I think it’s one of the, and I covered it very well. I assume you saw the news conference. I think Iran is, it’s one of the great deals ever made for them. I think it’s one of the most incompetent contracts I’ve even seen. I’m not just talking about defense. I’m not talking about a contract with another country. I’ve never seen more of a one-sided deal, I think, in my life, absolutely.” HUGH HEWITT: “Well, Soleimani is to terrorism sort of what Trump is to real estate.” DONALD TRUMP: “Okay.” HUGH HEWITT: “Many people would say he’s the most dangerous man in the world, and he runs the Quds Forces, which is their Navy SEALs.” DONALD TRUMP: “Is he the gentleman that was going back and forth with Russia and meeting with Putin? I read something, and that seems to be also where he’s at.” HUGH HEWITT: “That’s the guy.” DONALD TRUMP: “He’s going back and forth meeting with other countries, etc., etc.” HUGH HEWITT: “That’s the guy.” DONALD TRUMP: “Not good.” HUGH HEWITT: “And so do you think…” DONALD TRUMP: “Not good for us. And what it shows is a total lack of respect, I mean, that the other countries would even be entertaining him, and they’re entertaining him big league, big league.” [Hugh Hewitt Radio Show, 9/3/15]” (DNC, P: 34, 2015).

Self-profile with Gadaffi:

“TRUMP: “I’ve been interacting with leaders of countries and leaders of business all over the world, all of my life. And I think you guys know that probably better than anybody. I think I probably have more experience than anybody, whether I sell them real estate for tremendous amounts of money — I mean, I’ve dealt with everybody….  I dealt with Qaddafi.” DOOCY: “You buried the lead. What did you do?” TRUMP: “Excuse me. I rented him a piece of land. He paid me more for one night than the land was worth but the whole year, for two years, and then I didn’t let him use the land. That’s what we should be doing.” DOOCY: “Was that over in New Jersey?” TRUMP: “I don’t want to use the word screw but I screwed him. That’s what we should be doing. I rented him a piece of land in Bedford, New York. I rented him a piece of land…. He paid me a fortune and then I didn’t let him use the land.”[Fox & Friends, Fox News, 3/21/11]” (DNC, P: 67, 2015).

Trump broken flag

It’s okay when he could bribe the politicians, but not now he was running:

“TRUMP: “Well, it’s a very complex — you know what?  It’s a very complex thing.  As an example, I’m allowed to give $1,000 to every senator, right?… Do you know how little that is, and this was 20 years ago, $1000.  Now, I love it, because, you know, I’m capped out at a $1,000 per senator and they all love me for it.  You know, I give them $1,000, it’s great.” KING: “But you can reform where you have soft money, hard money, PAC money.” TRUMP: “Well, no, you have other ways.  But the one thing I feel strongly about — you know, I have heard Bradley and others talking about the government should pay for the elections, and I totally disagree.  If you like a candidate, you should be able to contribute to that candidate.  Now, they should let it be known that you’re contributing, but you should be able to contribute and help that candidate.  Otherwise, you’re taking away the whole American system.” [Larry King Live, CNN, 10/7/99]” (DNC, P: 76, 2015).

Not as Savvy in Business as he think he is:

“As ‘really rich’ as Donald Trump is today, he might have been even richer if, instead of dabbling in skyscrapers and casinos, he’d simply taken his eight-figure inheritance decades ago and sunk it into the stock market. Had the celebrity businessman and Republican presidential candidate invested his eventual share of father’s real estate company into a mutual fund of S&P 500 stocks in 1974, it would be worth nearly $3 billion today, thanks to the market’s performance over the past four decades. If he’d invested the $200 million that Forbes magazine determined he was worth in 1982 into that index fund, it would have grown to more than $8 billion today.” [National Journal, 9/2/15]” (DNC, P: 30, 2015).

Michael-Moore-Trump-Tower-Facebook-640x480

Here it was all in his own words, showing that his bluntness and loose mouth is not to be controlled, there we’re more things in the over 200 pages report, most a well-known and been addressed in the media. As the media who has undressed the Presidential Nominee have all has been revoked from the Campaign trail as Buzzfeed, Gawker, Huffington Post, Washington Post and so on have all been banned from the Donald. His thin skin can’t accept that he scanned thorough as a Presidential Candidate, he expect to be in glory as he is Fox News.

We can also see how little knowledge (Donald Trump has) and (his) understanding of the Syrian crisis, I will not say I have much understanding, as there are Kurdish forces, ISIS, Bashir Government Forces and other guerrillas together with loyalties to Turkey, Iran, Russia, EU-USA and so on. So that I would be more cautious as the steps and understanding of the conflict in Syria, are very complicated and would be cautious to describe the defining forces between who is who; and who is responsible for what and who are the legitimate force for change or stability of the country of Syria, as I am not sure and wouldn’t be as aggressive and ignorant as Donald Trump.

The other parts show how easy he can fire people and go bankrupt in the end also be in charge for other people losing their job, so he could save his skin and such. Together with his business savviness as the index fund investment could have earned as much as he claims to be worth. Though the claim is hard to address as he still haven’t delivered any IRS Tax Returns, so we can’t scrutinise his economy and business. There no real proof or registered fortune of the man. We can therefore question the validation of the values his current business and personal wealth. Since we have no grounds or legal documents, other than his bragging papers dropped in 2015, right after his start of his Presidential Campaign in the GOP Primaries.

With all of this in mind, the document said something and put the man in perspective, but not as much news, the others are the systematic proof of how his words and his ply in public, as he has no records as a legislator, member of Parliament or in the Senate, therefore he can only be seen as the man talking to Talk-Show hosts and radio-shows as he have always enjoyed the lime-light. Peace.
