Still Pounding Sand Where the Clintons are Concerned


In August, China tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile that orbited the planet before racing back down toward its target at more than five times the speed of sound. The test left U.S. intelligence surprised, indicating China is making quicker progress in developing hypersonic weapons than previously known.

Beijing has denied the report, saying that it had conducted a routine test of a space vehicle.

Eleven years ago, in May, The Washington Examiner reported, “Clinton Foundation staff pushed Hillary Clinton’s State Department to approve a meeting between Bill Clinton and a powerful Russian oligarch as her agency lined up investors for a project under his purview.”

The oligarch was Viktor Vekselberg of Renova and the overseer of the Skolkovo Innovation Center. Shortly after, Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a speech in Moscow from Renaissance Capital, a Russian investment bank with connections to the Kremlin.

Not only was Vekselberg a Moscow agent, but he was also a Clinton Foundation donor and involved with Uranium One, whose sale the Clinton State Department would approve, and whose executives together contributed $145 million to the Clinton Foundation.

A 2012 U.S. Army report on Skolkovo, by the United States European Command (EUCOM), says:

“…the Skolkovo Foundation has been involved in defense-related activities since December 2011, when it approved the first weapons-related project — the development of a hypersonic cruise missile engine. The project is a response to the U.S. Department of Defense’s Advanced Hypersonic Weapon, part of the Prompt Global Strike program.”

Then in November 2016, the U.S. Air Force released a report on the Russian and Chinese hypersonic missile threat to the U.S.:

“The People’s Republic of China and the Russian Federation are already flight-testing high-speed maneuvering weapons (HSMWs) that may endanger both forward-deployed U.S. forces and even the continental United States itself.”

“These weapons appear to operate in regimes of speed and altitude, with maneuverability that could frustrate existing missile defense constructs and weapon capabilities,” it adds.

Again, from the 2012 EUCOM intelligence bulletin:

“Skolkovo is an ambitious enterprise, aiming to promote technology transfer generally, by inbound direct investment, and occasionally, through selected acquisitions. As such, Skolkovo is arguably an overt alternative to clandestine industrial espionage — with the additional distinction that it can achieve such a transfer on a much larger scale and more efficiently.”

It continues:

“…it is not clear how much leverage the U.S. industry has. Therefore, the key issue for U.S. policymakers is balancing the benefits of constructive technological engagement with Russia against the risks that Russia could leverage transferred scientific knowledge to modernize and strengthen its military.”

The FBI went further in 2014, sending letters warning U.S. tech companies that in dealing with Skolkovo, they risked possible espionage. And an agent in the FBI’s Boston office even wrote about the possibility.

“[Skolkovo] may be a means for the Russian government to access our nation’s sensitive or classified research development facilities and dual-use technologies with military and commercial application,” Assistant Special Agent in Charge Lucia Ziobro penned in the Boston Business Journal.

The FBI was also concerned about the Rosatom State Nuclear Energy Corporations (Rosatom) acquisition of Uranium One. William Douglas Campbell got inside Rosatom in 2009 and gathered evidence that its agents were engaging in a racketeering scheme involving kickbacks, extortion, and bribery in the U.S.

Campbell also got a hold of written evidence that Vladimir Putin wanted to buy Uranium One as part of a strategy to obtain monopolistic domination of the global uranium markets. Campbell further warned that a Clinton Foundation donor was working for Rosatom while approval was pending before Hillary Clinton’s state department.

Her department and the Obama administration approved the transaction anyway.

  1. The Liberal Left continues to do its very best to achieve Mutal Assured Destruction. Indeed, the world has gone mad. Why are humans as a species, so intent on killing ourselves to extinction?
