The New Wikileaks Podesta Email Featuring “Troubling” Excerpts from Hillary Clinton’s Paid Speeches in 2013 and 2014

by Scott Creighton

Hillary Clinton’s “dream” is a border-less hemisphere with unrestricted free trade and open borders (pure globalist neoliberalism):”My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, some time in the future with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere.” [05162013 Remarks to Banco Itau.doc, p. 28]

The new Donald Trump video clip being hailed as the end of his presidential aspirations by the breathless and complicit MSM outlets serving as 24-hour Clinton promotional networks, is nothing more than desperate cover for this email I have included in its entirety below and a few like it released yesterday by Wikileaks. There were thousands of them in what they call their Podesta collection.

The Trump video was supposedly recorded by Access Hollywood back in 2005 with Billy Bush, son of Jonathan Bush who’s older brother George H. W. Bush is recently reported to have said he supports Hillary Clinton for president and whose cousin Jeb was supposed to have won the Republican Party nomination. George W. Bush has not as of yet gone so far as to endorse Hillary Clinton but he has said he will not endorse the Republican nominee. I wonder if someone thought this video would convince The Donald to step aside so SOMEONE ELSE could take up the mantle as the Responsible Republican nominee. Hmm… I wonder who that might be.

The video was reportedly dug up by Access Hollywood producers after a story came out last week about Trump being sexist toward workers on the set of his show, The Apprentice. NBC owns Access Hollywood and were making ready to release the video and an accompanying story on Monday but someone hijacked the video and fed it to David Fahrenhold of the Washington Post so he could quickly cobble together an article and get it out yesterday so it could cover the bad press Hillary Clinton was bound to get after the Podesta collection email about her Big Banking speeches hit the internet. Plus a Monday release of the video would do nothing to help her in Sunday’s debate and without sufficient cover, the debate would be dominated by the revaluations from that email and her speeches.

“After reviewing the tape, “we were debating what to do” with it, an NBC source explained.

By Friday morning, Silverstein had decided to broadcast it, and a script had been written. The story was not slated to air on Friday night’s edition of the show, however.

That means the earliest it would have aired is Monday night — after Sunday’s presidential debate.

Another NBC source confirmed that “Access” was working on a story, and that NBC News knew about it, but said that as of Friday morning the story “wasn’t quite finalized.”

That’s when Silverstein was notified that David Fahrenthold of The Washington Post had come into possession of a copy

According to the Post, Farenthold knows the identity of the person who leaked the video to him, but will not disclose it.” CNN

Fahrenhold and the Washington Post refuse to disclose their source for the leaked video perhaps because it didn’t come from a source inside NBC but rather from some other nefarious institution that is sweeping up all of the inner-company communications over there. Like the previous leak of Trump’s singular tax-filing that dominated the news cycle a couple weeks ago, the source of this latest attempt to take out Trump may in fact have it’s roots squarely planted in the Obama administration itself. That is just a guess but it’s a frightening one. The full power of the most intrusive US government in history using that power to sway elections even before they have to steal them with electronic voting machines.

Or perhaps it came from one of those billionaire friends of Jeb, W and Poppy Bush.

The email in question is potentially devastating to the Clinton campaign while she is struggling to keep her minions in camp and trying desperately to sway Bernie supporters to her side. Especially the millennials vote.

So far, the Associated Press is the only source I can find reporting on the damning statements made by Clinton at various speeches she gave to Big Banking.

Hillary Clinton told bankers behind closed doors that she favored “open trade and open borders” and said Wall Street executives were best-positioned to help reform the U.S. financial sector, according to transcripts of her private, paid speeches leaked Friday.” AP

Not only does she make it perfectly clear she fully supports the free trade agreements she pretends to oppose these days for political gain, but she also explains how she must have a ‘public and a private” position on such things in order to be an effective politician and advocate for their interests. In short, she must lie to the public and then serve the private interests of “the people in the rooms” she is speaking to.

Here are a few key points I noticed in the email from her speeches:

  • Clinton admits the wealth she and her husband have acquired since leaving office leaves her “far removed” from the folks who are starting to understand the game is rigged: “Because The Life I’ve Lived And The Economic, You Know, Fortunes That My Husband And I Now Enjoy.” *“And I am not taking a position on any policy, but I do think there is a growing sense of anxiety and even anger in the country over the feeling that the game is rigged.” [Hillary Clinton Remarks at Goldman-Black Rock, 2/4/14]
  • Clinton tells bankers the perception of a rigged system “is a problem for all of us”… “us” meaning the bankers and the wealthy: ““Even If It May Not Be 100 Percent True, If The Perception Is That Somehow The Game Is Rigged, That Should Be A Problem For All Of Us.” [Clinton Remarks to Deutsche Bank, 10/7/14]
  • Clinton says regulation and reform should be left to Wall Street insiders: “The People That Know The Industry Better Than Anybody Are The People Who Work In The Industry.” [Goldman Sachs AIMS Alternative Investments Symposium, 10/24/13]
  • Clinton wants total free trade across the board like the TPP and scolds any efforts at protectionism:”“Secondly, I think we have to have a concerted plan to increase trade already under the current circumstances, you know, that Inter-American Development Bank figure is pretty surprising. There is so much more we can do, there is a lot of low hanging fruit but businesses on both sides have to make it a priority and it’s not for governments to do but governments can either make it easy or make it hard and we have to resist, protectionism, other kinds of barriers to market access and to trade and I would like to see this get much more attention and be not just a policy for a year under president X or president Y but a consistent one.” [05162013 Remarks to Banco Itau.doc, p. 32]
  • Clinton’s “dream” is a border-less hemisphere with unrestricted free trade and open borders (pure globalist neoliberalism):”My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, some time in the future with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere.” [05162013 Remarks to Banco Itau.doc, p. 28]
  • Clinton admits she lies to her followers and explains you have to have a “public and a private position” on subjects these days:But If Everybody’s Watching, You Know, All Of The Back Room Discussions And The Deals, You Know, Then People Get A Little Nervous, To Say The Least. So, You Need Both A Public And A Private Position.” [Clinton Speech For National Multi-Housing Council, 4/24/13]
  • Clinton supports neoliberal austerity/pro-growth ideology put forward in the Simpson-Bowles “compromise”: “But Simpson-Bowles — and I know you heard from Erskine earlier today — put forth the right framework. Namely, we have to restrain spending, we have to have adequate revenues, and we have to incentivize growth. It’s a three-part formula” [Clinton Speech For Morgan Stanley, 4/18/13]
  • Clinton knew using her Blackberry was against State Department rules: “When I Got To The State Department, It Was Still Against The Rules To Let Most — Or Let All Foreign Service Officers Have Access To A Blackberry.” [Hillary Clinton Remarks at Nexenta, 8/28/14]
  • Clinton knew that State Department emails were under constant attack from hackers: “At The State Department We Were Attacked Every Hour, More Than Once An Hour By Incoming Efforts To Penetrate Everything We Had. And That Was True Across The U.S. Government.” [Clinton Speech At UConn, 4/23/14]
  • Clinton admitted she pushed the boundaries of State Department rules by using her personal devices in spite of hacking threats and national security:And, you know, people were not even allowed to use mobile devices because of security issues and cost issues, and we really had to try to push into the last part of the 20th Century in order to get people functioning in 2009 and ‘10.” [Goldman Sachs Builders And Innovators Summit, 10/29/13]

As you can see, there is a ton of ammunition for Trump to pick from in this leak and if nothing else it could certainly prompt a renewed call for her to release all the transcripts her staff is clearly in possession of. But all of that is now a moot point because, according to the complicit media, Trump was beyond boorish 11 years ago when bragging about his sexual conquests and caddish behavior toward women.

Yeah, Hillary is lying to her followers, in the pocket of Big Banking, supports the worst aspects of austerity/neoliberal economic ideology, dreams of a New World Order with Banksters and CEOs calling the shots and has big plans for big free market trade deals, the ones she pretends to oppose.

But that’s not news because we’ve suddenly discovered Donald Trump is a pig. Nifty how that works, huh?

(Here’s a question: the video isn’t really a video of Trump and Bush saying the worst things he’s given credit for. In fact, you don’t see them at all during any of that. and it was never aired when it came out. Makes me kind of wonder if Trump and Billy Bush didn’t record the audio track in a studio someplace a week or so ago and it was dubbed into the video in post production. It would allow Trump to back out somewhat gracefully ‘with the best interests of the party in mind” and allow the establishment Rethuglicans to insert another candidate, perhaps Jeb Bush, into the mix. Then another FBI release of “missing” emails sours the national mood toward her and PRESTO! We got Jeb 2016 just like they planned at the beginning. It’s a thought)

Below is the full text from Wikileaks of that one email sent by a staffer in January of 2016 to other staffers and John Podesta talking about potentially problematic quotes from her paid speeches at places like Goldman Sachs and others.
