Bahrain Prince Donates $32M To Clinton Foundation, “Gets Access to Secretary of State”

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

$32 million down, and … Next thing you know, the meeting was allowed. Wonder what he asked for?

More importantly, we should all be asking: is this really how we want foreign affairs to be handled – for private gain?

According to the Daily Caller:

Newly released Department of State documents reveal that the Crown Prince of Bahrain was given an audience with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton after he donated $32 million to her foundation.

The documents, released Monday by Judicial Watch, included emails between Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band and former Clinton State Department aide Huma Abedin, which appear to show that Abedin acted as a middleman between Clinton and her foundation’s donors.

[…]
The first email, dated June 23, 2009, shows Band interceding on behalf of the Crown Prince, noting he is a “good friend of ours.”

The priorities couldn’t be more obvious. How many decades of war, terror and debt will trail behind the destructive actions of a Hillary Clinton presidency?

Basically, the Clintonista form of government is all mercenary pay-for-play. It works for who can afford access, and could can afford the protection of the government. It is basically a queen’s court of favor, and there is no shortage of ruthlessness who fall on the other side of that favor. Just ask Gaddafi about that.

That White House is one that is very much for sale.

Here is video of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s formal meeting with His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, Crown Prince of Bahrain, who established a Crown Prince International Scholarship Program through the Clinton Foundation back in 2005 and subsequently funded it to the tune of $32 million over the course of the next five years.

The emails, obtained by Judicial Watch, show the inner workings of this pay-for-play set-up. “CP” refers to Crown Prince Salman of Bahrain:

How is this not grounds for disqualification? Because there are intermediaries?

Bahrain is important in Middle East affairs because it stations the permanent U.S. Naval Support Activity base for the entire Persian Gulf. That situates at least 50,000 or so full time U.S. soldiers, directly across from the huge Iran landmass, inside the Straight of Hormuz (where Iran has the means of blocking off access to the gulf for all ships not already stationed at the base).

Bahrain is strategically of great importance to U.S. interests in keeping tabs on Iran; it is undoubtedly where a major part of any potential war with Iran would be based.

The U.S. Naval base remains there despite controversy and opposition to it during past decades, a storm which it weathered.

    American journalism is collapsing before our eyes

    Donald Trump may or may not fix his campaign, and Hillary Clinton may or may not become the first female president. But something else happening before our eyes is almost as important: the complete collapse of American journalism as we know it.

    The frenzy to bury Trump is not limited to the Clinton campaign and the Obama White House. They are working hand in hand with what was considered the cream of the nation’s news organizations.

    The shameful display of naked partisanship by the elite media is unlike anything seen in modern America.

    The largest broadcast networks — CBS, NBC and ABC — and major newspapers like the New York Times and Washington Post have jettisoned all pretense of fair play. Their fierce determination to keep Trump out of the Oval Office has no precedent.

    Indeed, no foreign enemy, no terror group, no native criminal gang suffers the daily beating that Trump does. The mad mullahs of Iran, who call America the Great Satan and vow to wipe Israel off the map, are treated gently by comparison.

    By torching its remaining credibility in service of Clinton, the mainstream media’s reputations will likely never recover, nor will the standards. No future producer, editor, reporter or anchor can be expected to meet a test of fairness when that standard has been trashed in such willful and blatant fashion.
