Hereís What Itís Like To Have Clinton Cronies Sell Out Your Industry
Daily Caller News Foundation ^ | 05/08/2016 | Andrew Follett

America’s uranium industry has been absolutely devastated by Department of Energy decisions and political maneuvering by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and individuals closely tied to her.

...

in 1976, the uranium extraction industry employed 35,000 people. Today .. fewer than 500 people in this country are involved in it .. 20 percent of our electrical power is dependent on those 500 people, that’s every fifth light-bulb. We’re now producing enough uranium to power 4 or 5 of our nuclear reactors, that’s 94 dependent on foreign uranium.

...

Since 2011, DOE has sold off roughly $1 billion of publicly-owned uranium through private sellers without overseeing the transactions

...

While Clinton was secretary of state, the department approved the sale of approximately 20 percent of U.S. uranium production capacity to Russian-controlled companies, including Uranium One. Uranium One’s chairman donated $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundation, according to The New York Times. The donation was not publicly disclosed.

Uranium One is deeply tied to the government of Kazakhstan and has received substantial concessions and perks from that government. Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who chaired Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, has been citing environmental concerns to prevent America’s largest uranium deposit from being mined since 2013, boosting Uranium One’s market share and profits.

...

Gov. McAuliffe’s opposition to a vibrant domestic uranium industry makes no sense, unless his friend Hillary Clinton is making money off of foreign owned companies

...

DOE and McAuliffe’s actions have allowed foreign producers, especially Kazakhstan and Russia, to dominate the American market. Kazakhstan alone now supplies 23 percent of the uranium for America’s nuclear reactors

...

American commercial nuclear reactors doubled their purchases of Kazakhstani uranium in 2014, largely due to the decline in the amount of the American uranium industry.

Just a reminder about the uranium deal in eastern Oregon - that explains why the Feds need to murder and plunder to get those ranchers and their defenders off said land by whatever means necessary.

Don’t question your Rulers’ judgment/wisdom or soon you will be charged as a traitor, an Enemy of the State, and gunned down, Finicum style.

The level of corruption surrounding this woman - and the level of stupidity of those who support her while ignoring this corruption - is beyond frightening.

The uranium industry was largely in my County, Mohave County of which I am a County Supervisor. What they did was criminal and nobody cared. Yea, they had hearings and wagged their fingers but the bureaucrats still did what they wanted to do.

Here’s What It’s Like To Have Clinton Cronies Sell Out Your Industry

I love watching the clip of the out of work coal miner confronting Madam Benghazi and watching her switching seamlessly into lying mode.

Frankly, I'm surprised she even bothers to go to West Virginia after vowing to crush the coal industry.

Clinton/Obama cronies behind Bundy showdown. High-level Democrats positioned to profit from ‘green’ projects.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid declared: “This isn’t over.” And he is certainly correct. The showdown between BLM and Cliven Bundy..

Note Jonathan Magaziner .. the son of Ira Magaziner, former senior policy adviser for President Bill Clinton. The elder Magaziner now works for the Clinton Foundation..

But that is not all. A company called First Solar is listed on a BLM renewable energy project map .. there is a lot more going on than media have reported.

First Solar investors comprise a who’s who of Democratic insiders, including major Obama campaign bundlers, billionaire investor Paul Tudor Jones, Al Gore, Ted Turner and Goldman Sachs. First Solar’s CEO is Michael Ahearn, former fundraiser for both Obama and Harry Reid.

The FBI observes that among the most ethically challenged emails Hillary was desperate to hide dealt w/ "Selling Access."

HERE'S HOW THE CLINTONS SCREWED AFRICA OUT OF ITS OWN VALUABLE RESOURCES: The head of a Canadian company with an enormous interest in Africa....in the Congo's mining and oil sector.....Lukas Lundin of Lundin Mining.....announced a $100 million donation to the Clinton Foundation on the heels of Hillary/s first presidential campaign....as she became Secy of State.

After the Congolese government attempted to regain control of its own mines, the State Department intervened on behalf of Lundin Mining and another mining company, Freeport Mines, also a Clinton foundation donor.

A round of talks in 2010, thought to be aided by the Clinton State Department, concluded with the pair of well- connected companies (Clinton Foundation donors) retaining their stakes in the mines and with the Congolese government being shut out of its own resources.

THE STATE DEPT PAPER TRAIL---- Hillary/s State Dept Aide Shared Classified state Dept Information With Clinton Foundation 2012 Email Shows Aide Cheryl Mills sent information marked confidential to Clinton Foundation / reported By Alana Goodman, Free Beacon September 28, 2015

A key aide of Hillary Clinton emailed classified information about the government in Congo to a staffer at the Clinton Foundation in 2012, according to a copy of the correspondence obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Cheryl Mills, Clinton/s chief of staff at the State Department, sent the email to the Clinton Foundation’s foreign policy director, Amitabh Desai, on July 12, 2012.

The message, which was originally obtained by the group Citizens United through a public records request, is partially redacted because it includes foreign government information that has been classified Confidential by the State Department......but was not marked classified by the State Department until this past summer.

Intelligence sources tell the Free Beacon that it would have been classified at the time Mills sent it because foreign government information is considered classified from inception.

The message could add to concerns from congressional and FBI investigators about whether former Secretary Clinton and her aides mishandled classified information while at the State Department.

About half of the forwarded message was redacted due to its classified nature before the State Department released it to Citizens United last month.

Although it is not clear what the redacted section includes, the State Department said in a court motion filed last week that it concerns both foreign government information and critical aspects of U.S. foreign relations, including U.S. foreign activities carried out by officials of the U.S. Government.

The State Department added that the disclosure of this information has the potential to damage and inject friction into our bilateral relationship with African countries whose cooperation is important to U.S. national security.

The Clinton Foundation and the State Department did not respond to request for comment about the email, or say whether Desai...a non-government employee who has worked at the foundation since 2007....would have been authorized to view Confidential information.

The NYT report WRT the sell-off of strategic US uranium assets noted that the uranium investors also donated to the Clinton Foundation, as follows:

<><> Canadian Frank Giustra—globe-trotting pal of Bill-—donated $31.3 million and a pledge for $100 million more to the Clinton Foundation. Giustra built a company that later merged with Uranium One. Seems to have facilitated the uranium sell-off.

<><> Canadian Ian Telfer—donated $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundation. Mining investor who was chairman of Uranium One when an arm of the Russian government, Rosatom, acquired it.

<><>Paul Reynolds—donated $1 million to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation Adviser on 2007 UrAsia-Uranium One merger. Later helped raise $260 million for the company.

<><>Frank Holmes-—donated $250,000 to $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation. Chief Executive of U.S. Global Investors Inc., which held $4.7 million in Uranium One shares in the first quarter of 2011.

<><> Canadian Neil Woodyer-—Founded Endeavour Mining with Giustra—donated $50,000 to $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation. Adviser to Uranium One.

<><> GMP Securities Ltd.-—Donating portion of profits to the Clinton Foundation. Worked on debt issue that raised $260 million for Uranium One. (needs to be rigorously scrutinized---could also be the Clinton Foundation money-laundering apparat)

============================================

The NY Times reported the "Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership" collected about $33 million US tax dollars from Hillary's State Dept between 2008 and 2013.....$25 million of which was passed back across the border to the US-based Clinton Foundation.

Giustra then pledged $100 million to the Foundation after Clinton helped him clinch the mega-bucks uranium deal.

ITEM---millions of dollars and 1,100 donors are shrouded in mystery in the Canadian Giustra/Clinton operation. The Clinton Foundation signed a memorandum of understanding with the Obama White House agreeing to reveal its contributors every year. The agreement stipulates that the Clinton Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative (as the charity was then-known) is part of the Clinton Foundation and must follow the same protocols.

SURPRISE: It hasnt.

Caught w/ his pants down, Giustra/s backtracking like crazy---saying Canadas federal privacy law forbids the Canadian-registered Clinton charity, from revealing its donors.

A memo he provided news organs cites fiduciary obligations to its contributors and Canada’s Personal Information Privacy and Electronic Disclosure Act. “We are not allowed to disclose even to the Clinton Foundation the names of our donors,” Giustra says.

However, Canadian tax and privacy law experts were dubious of the Clinton/Giustra claims. A former director knowledgeable about tax policy at Canada's Department of Finance, said he wasnt aware of any tax laws that would prevent the Clinton charity from releasing its donor names. QUOTE There's nothing that would preclude them from releasing donor names. It's entirely up to them.

========================================

Hillary and Frank Giustra, left.

Hes a mining mogul......he facilitated the takeover of US uranium assets.... he received tax dollars from Hillary's State Dept.

Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra is one of the Clinton Foundation’s largest donors. Giustra's $100 million contributions go directly:

<><> (1) to the tax-exempt Clinton Foundation, and,

<><> (2) to the Canada-based "Clinton-Giustra Enterprise Partnership."

The "Clinton-Giustra Enterprise Partnership" in turn sends money to the Clinton Foundation...(according to Canadian tax records researched by "Clinton Cash" author Schweizer).

===========================================

As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.

And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.

At the time, both Rosatom and the United States government made promises intended to ease concerns about ceding control of company assets to the Russians. Those promises have been repeatedly broken, records show. (hat tip amorphous)

I get annoyed at the type of reasoning employed in this article.

“in 1976, the uranium extraction industry employed 35,000 people. Today .. fewer than 500 people in this country are involved in it .. 20 percent of our electrical power is dependent on those 500 people, that’s every fifth light-bulb. We’re now producing enough uranium to power 4 or 5 of our nuclear reactors, that’s 94 dependent on foreign uranium.”

So, HRC is to blamed for what has happened since 1976?

And as to the ownership of the mines, how does that affect the number of people working there?

I am not excusing HRC and think her U deal was as corrupt as, well, just about anything else she has touched or thought of.

Solar, Uranium, no more coal mining, fracking, etc etc etc - Selling off America major piece by major piece to settle other debts of the Oligarchs? This all is hanging material - here is just one of several commentaries that you won’t see reported anywhere off the internet.
