Hillary Clinton: Another of Her "Nudes?"

New uncomfortable revelation has just ruined the image of the supposed North American democracy.  

Thus wrote last Friday the journalist Roberto Casín in The New Herald whose article was named: THE MARIA RAMOS’S KITTEN.  

At some point in his text he refers the scandal of the electoral agreement between Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party.

He added: "nobody with an ounce of self-respect endorses the old stereotype that some belong to the party of the rich and others to the party of poor."  

In his writing he asserted that the dividing line of money between Republicans and Democrats, if there was ever one, has already vanished.  

Casín added that certain honest voices among democrats admit that the concept is obsolete and that the party has been disconnected from the minds and hearts of the country.  

He said that the great ethical slap has just been delivered to the puritans of the politics of the former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, after the former chairman for the Democratic National Committee, Donna Brazile revealed in a book the existence of a secret agreement between her and highest echelon of the party that confirms the suspicions of Bernie Sanders‘s followers regarding the blockade to his nomination as democrat candidate for the White House last year.  

According to the pact, undersigned in August 2015, in exchange for helping the Committee to collect funds, Clinton obtained a huge control of the party machinery. The money in control, and it won't be illegal – claim the lawyers - although goes beyond the boundary of vile and immoral.  

And finally the Herald journalist meant that from now on the lady won't be able to do what María Ramos kitten does, throwing the stone and hiding the hand. Neither begs to the universe of her admirers to blindly believe in her.

Meddling for Trump? The most expensive Twitter ad was about Bernie Sanders – RT Editor-in-Chief

The accusations of “meddling” in US elections are not valid, as Russian media is targeted for covering US political news, RT and Sputnik Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan said, noting jokingly that the costliest Twitter ad was not even about Trump, but Sanders.

Simonyan delivered the comments on Wednesday at an extended panel of the Russian Federation Council’s Interim Committee on the Protection of Sovereignty. The meeting was called to discuss last week’s move by Twitter to impose a blanket ban on ads from RT and Sputnik, citing alleged US “election interference.”


Russian media is being targeted in the US effectively due to its political coverage and therefore having political ads, Simonyan told the Committee. Twitter itself had approached RT with an advertising campaign proposal during the 2016 US election campaign, she added. 

“Look, we’re not an ice cream factory or the ‘Golos’ (Voice) program [a popular Russian TV singing contest] – we’re a news channel that’s focused on politics. Moreover, we were offered [the chance] to use political issues for promotion,” Simonyan told the meeting, showing the pitch from Twitter. The proposed ads campaign cost over $3 million, with customized emojis alone costing $800,000, according to the promotional materials shown by Simonyan to the meeting. 

“Twitter now is blaming us for what it initiated itself. Here’s this lovely presentation. [Twitter] approached us with it and said, ‘Hey, guys, look how cool [your ads would look on] our platform during the US presidential elections,’” she told the Committee.

“Unfortunately, we could not afford to spend such a sum,” she said, adding, that total expenditure on the promotional campaign in 2016 was some $275,000, Simonyan said. That’s the equivalent of the cost of a two-room apartment in a Moscow suburb, she pointed out.

“The most expensive Twitter ad [at $12,000] on RT America was about Bernie Sanders – not Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, but Bernie Sanders. How can you use this to make it look like we interfered in the US election race to help Trump – I don’t quite get it. Yet, this is what we are accused of,” she added.

Twitter, however, cited the report released in January, compiled by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI). It devoted seven pages to RT’s alleged influence on the election “by serving as a platform for Kremlin messaging to Russian and international audiences.”

The report, which did not provide any solid facts to back up its far-reaching allegations, has been widely cited as “proof” to fuel the “Russian election meddling” hysteria that persists in the US. It was also used as a pretext to put severe pressure on Russian media broadcasting in the US, particularly RT America.

In September, the contractor that supplies various services for RT America, including TV production and operations, received a letter from the US Department of Justice, claiming that it was obliged to register as a “foreign agent,” under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). The Act was adopted in the late 1930s to counter pro-Nazi propaganda and serves the goal of informing “the people of the United States … of the source of information (propaganda) and the identity of persons attempting to influence US public opinion, policy, and laws.”

Foreign media have always been exempted from the effects of the Act, due to the principle of freedom of the press. If RT's contractor fails to register as a foreign agent, it may face the seizure of its assets and even arrests of its employees, which would effectively destroy RT America’s ability to broadcast.

The pressure on Russian media outlets and the threats to limit their ability to broadcast triggered an angry reaction in Moscow, which has repeatedly promised to implement tit-for-tat measures against the US media if any of the decisions to hamper the freedom of Russian media outlets would be implemented. Apart from adopting reciprocal measures, Russia is ready to impose restrictions on US NGOs and their affiliates if Washington undertakes hostile moves against Russian media, Deputy Justice Minister Oleg Plokhoy said at the Committee meeting on Wednesday.

“We will likely have to implement measures to tighten control over foreign NGOs and their branches, agencies and other affiliated persons. The degree of that control is almost identical to those measures undertaken in the US today against Russian media,” Plokhoy said, stressing that the Justice Ministry is ready to implement such measures immediately, as it’s been working in the “cocked-hammer” mode since the threat to Russian media emerged.

Sanders Calls for More Action, Less Rhetoric, Against Trump

As Bernie Sanders tours the country rallying the masses, he reminds people that action without strategy won't get them far.

In the wake of Donald Trump’s presidential victory, Bernie Sanders has said it is not only important to mobilize, but to have a strategy and to act on it.

“Our job is not just to raise our voices,” the once-presidential candidate said in an interview with PBS Newshour on Monday. “That’s fine. But it is to bring millions of people together around a progressive agenda.”

RELATED: Sanders to Rally: 'Trump Won't Take on Establishment, We Will'

While the Vermont Senator has honored the results of the elections, he has been touring the country and rallying the masses against Trump’s damaging and inflammatory rhetoric in jam-packed events.

Despite Trump’s apparent appeal to the working class, Sanders has pointed out, he is nothing more than an extension of the very same political and economic establishments against which he constantly railed.

“This is a guy who's a billionaire who doesn't pay anything in federal income taxes, who outsources his jobs,” Sanders said in another interview with GQ on Tuesday. A guy “who has been sued time and time again by workers for not keeping up his end in contracts.”

Sanders, who is currently touring to also promote his book, “Our Revolution,” in which he reflects on his campaign, has also called for more transparency and action from his supporters. At one event on Monday, he suggested self-nominated democrats and progressives alike must begin doing more to “stand up with the working class of this country,” rather than just shouting progressive slogans.

“This is where there is going to be division within the Democratic Party. It is not good enough for someone to say, ‘I’m a woman! Vote for me!’” he said while giving a speech at Boston’s Berklee University on Monday. “What we need is a woman who has the guts to stand up to Wall Street, to the insurance companies, to the drug companies, to the fossil fuel industry.”

He has also vowed that there can be “no compromise” with Trump when it comes to issues of climate change, racism, sexism and homophobia, all the issues Trump has repeatedly attacked. He nevertheless conceded to working together on working-class issues, if the president-elect committed to it.

“I think it would be counterproductive on issues that working-class Americans supported and depend upon if we did not go forward,” he told GQ.

He added that, to that effect, he and his team will be introducing various pieces of legislation covering everything from raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, to equity for women workers, to infrastructure and trade.

“So it's not a question of us working with Trump,” he said. “It's a question of Trump working with us.”

Bernie Sanders Vows to Oppose Trump's Racism and Xenophobia

In his first comments about the election of Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency, former Democratic presidential candidate vowed to "vigorously" oppose the president-elect's racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-environment policies. 

"Donald Trump tapped into the anger of a declining middle class that is sick and tired of establishment economics, establishment politics and the establishment media," Sanders said in a statement on his official Facebook account. 

"People are tired of working longer hours for lower wages, of seeing decent paying jobs go to China and other low-wage countries, of billionaires not paying any federal income taxes and of not being able to afford a college education for their kids -- all while the very rich become much richer." 

If the Trump administration next year decides to work for changing that status quo and improving the lives of working families, Sanders said he and other progressives in the U.S. Congress would be prepared to work with the real estate billionaire. 

Many who were shocked by the result of the elections blamed the Democratic party for Trump's triumph by selecting Clinton and sabotaging the Sanders campaign before the primaries had even begun.  People also argued that the self-described democratic socialist would have won the presidency in a race against Trump as he had generated enough enthusiasm among both minorities and white voters. 

Bernie Sanders said: "To the degree that he (Donald Trump) pursues racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-environment policies, we will vigorously oppose him."

Sanders will try to Prevent Clinton from Committing to Republicans

Washington, Oct 26 (Prensa Latina) Senator Bernie Sanders will try to prevent Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton from committing to the Republican Party if she is elected President of the United States, he said in an interview published in The Washington Post.

It would not be good for anybody if since the first day we have to commit with them only because they control the House of Representatives, said the legislator for Vermont.

According to Sanders, before starting to reach agreements of that kind, the Blue Party should unite the people of the U.S. around its ideas and leave clear that if Republicans do not agree with measures in favor of the middle and working classes, they will pay a high political price.

The ex-Democrat precandidate to the Presidency considered that if Clinton wins elections next November 8, she will face not only the opposition of the Red Party, but also of liberal democrats who are not excited by her campaign and fear a centrist government.

During the Democrat primaries Sanders represented a great pressure for the former Secretary of State, when winning 43 percent of the votes, before announcing his support to Clinton last July.

The strong position that gave him that result has allowed him to influence in the orientation of his party's platform and, as he expressed in the interview, his work will be to demand that his party implements such a platform.

We won 22 states and 46 percent of the committed delegates, 13.4 million votes and the majority of young persons, the future of the nation, which gives me a high influence which I have every intention of using, he assured.

'Doofus Bernie': #PodestaEmails11 reveal more contempt for Sanders

The 11th tranche of emails from John Podesta has been released by WikiLeaks. The batch includes discussion around Clinton's potential vice presidential candidates and further evidence of contempt for Bernie Sanders within the campaign.

It’s understood this leak comprises almost 2,000 emails, of a total of 50,000 from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair which the whistleblowing website claims to possess.


Yesterday’s release included campaign staff exchanges on handling media queries about Clinton “flip-flopping” on gay marriage, galvanizing Latino support and locking down Clinton’s healthcare policy.



Doofus Bernie

In an email chain from December 2015, Podesta messaged Neera Tanden, president and CEO of the Center for American Progress, regarding the Paris Climate Conference and referred to Bernie Sanders as a “doofus" for attacking the deal.

"We need bold action in the very near future and this does not provide that,” Sanders said in a statement on the day the pact was agreed. Sanders also said one month before that climate change “is directly related to the growth of terrorism.”

In January 2016, Podesta asks Tanden to “do an intervention” in the endorsement of Bernie Sanders by Benjamin Jealous, a former president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

“Why would he do that? i'm happy to reach out to him. Not sure he will care, but happy to try,” Tanden tells Podesta in the mail. Jealous went on to endorse Sanders for his presidential bid.

Potential VP candidates

A list of potential VP nominees categorized in “rough food groups” is detailed in a mail from Podesta to Clinton. The 39 names include founder of Microsoft Bill Gates, his wife Melinda, Apple CEO Tim Cook and, categorized in his own separate group, Bernie Sanders.

Michael Bloomberg is also included, along with Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and New Hampshire senator Jeanne Shaheen.

An analysis of the “food groups” revealed Podesta, along with others in Clinton’s team, grouped potential VPs into seven categories:

  • Politicians of Latino descent
  • Female politicians
  • White male politicians
  • Black male politicians
  • Military
  • Business magnates
  • Bernie Sanders



Race and sex are again focal points for choosing positions, as revealed in a 2008 mail from Obama advisor Mike Froman to Podesta. Froman reveals he failed to attract African-American Susan Collins (then Dean at the University of Michigan) to a position described as “Chair”.

“I don't how you want to go back to him on things like this. I don't think there is another candidate of color who folks would be comfortable putting up as Chair, though either Ceci or Peter (as a stretch) could be a Member,” Froman says.

Podesta replies, “Can you call Larry and see what minorities he would put in top tier? Could be an asian. I know this isn't Larry's taste, but better if a woman.”

Thumb drive

A July 24, 2015 email from Clinton’s longtime lawyer, David Kendall, discussed the intelligence community inspector general’s notifying of Congress of a compromise of classified information in Clinton’s emails, and revealed the lawyer was in possession of a thumb drive containing Clinton’s private emails.

A Washington Post report from the same date revealed the Justice Department had been notified of a potential compromise when it had received a “referral” from the Inspector General of the Intelligence Agencies, Charles McCullough III.

According to Kendall, “the report explicitly states that none of those emails bore classification or dissemination-limitation markings. It goes on to say that its own IC IG review of the 55,000 pages determined that at least 4 of these emails should have been classified 'secret' on account of them containing IC information subject to such classification and that a thumb drive containing these emails is presently in the possession of David Kendall (that would be me) at Williams & Connolly."

“This appears to be the only reference to a “referral” in the notification,” Kendall’s email concludes. 

A statement from the Office of Inspector General explains the “main purpose of the referral was to notify security officials that classified information may exist on at least one private server and thumb drive that are not in the government's possession.”

FBI notes from Clinton’s email investigation released in September revealed a Clinton Foundation laptop and thumb drive were missing. 

“Neither Hanley nor [redacted] could identify the current whereabouts of the archive laptop or thumb drive containing the archive, and the FBI does not have either item in its possession,” the FBI’s notes read.

Goldman money

In a February 2016 email, strategist Tom Cosgrove sent Podesta three ideas to help Clinton’s campaign. He suggests giving the “Goldman money” to the Children's Defense Fund, as “it gives her a legitimate opportunity to get the public to appreciate her long history of social justice in a way that just talking about it or advertising it doesn't.”

Cosgrove suggests she use a variation of the line, “I'm all for Senator Sanders goals and will push them when 218 members of the House and 60 Senators are saints. But we know for a fact that the next Congress will not be filled with Saints.”

Inspired by Jeb

Clinton’s camp took inspiration from Jeb Bush’s stance on the economy, liaising with a research group which praises Bush’s “message” for attracting “half of african americans and democrats and two thirds of latinos.”

“Some thought it ended too harsh. But the perspective on the economy has really worked. Now we didn't tell people this was from bush. But its a warning,” reads the mail from Lake Research to Clinton advisor Minyon Moore.

The opposition

Tapes containing nine hours of conversation with Donald Trump from Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success author Michael D'Antonio are offered to Clinton consultant Janet Keller in a mail dated March 4, 2016. “He does not want to be paid,” Keller is advised in the mail entitled ‘Opposition research’.

Harvard professor Larry Lessig, who announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for president in August 2015, is harshly criticized in an email by Neera Tanden.

“I f*cking hate that guy. Like I'd like to kick the sh*t out of him on twitter...but I know that is dumb,” Tanden writes to Podesta. Lessig subsequently withdrew from the race before the 2016 primaries began.

Latest WikiLeaks Dump Futher Explains Clinton Strategy

The leaked emails provide further detail on how Hilary Clinton's team dealt with the Benghazi hearing and other campaign concerns. 

The latest batch of hacked emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign Chairman John Podesta were released by whistleblowing group WikiLeaks early Friday. The newly-released emails add to the thousands already made public that detail the inner-workings of Clinton and her staff.

RELATED: Clinton Cozier with Big Interests Than Thought, Emails Show

In a 2015 email from Podesta to Clinton discussing her Benghazi hearing, Podesta suggests shifting the blame onto the Republican Party. Podesta suggested that Clinton’s team could ask why the Benghazi committee was “spending over US$4 million dollars and two years on a tragedy involving the death of four Americans” while Republicans were not concerned about thousands of American lives lost to firearms, cigarette smoking, work injuries and cancer.

The email stated that the hearing “is about PEOPLE and not about Hillary Clinton,” and that this approach would put “Benghazi Republicans on the defensive while siding with Americans.

During her time as U.S. secretary of state, Clinton took responsibility for a number of security breaches stemming from her use of a personal email account for classified communications during the hearing set up to investigate the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The latest leak also details how Clinton’s staff prepared for the hearing through a number of draft statements and how they planned to account for deleted emails.

“Off-record: If pressed on whether we are essentially admitting the possibility that she deleted some emails: Look, we do not know what these materials are, or where they came from. Just take a look at them: many of the documents are not even formatted as emails,” an email from campaign spokesman Brian Fallon explained.

Other emails from Clinton’s staff explained dealing with the media and journalists, and how her campaign was concerned about her connection with Wall Street and their concessions on supporting a carbon tax while opposing Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination.

‘Donald Trump would be a disaster for this country’ - Bernie Sanders to RT

Bernie Sanders has once again warned against voting for Donald Trump, who as he told RT would be “a disaster” for the United States and he doesn’t want his grandchildren to live under Trump’s presidency. Sanders is trying to get millennials on Clinton’s side.

“I’m here to say vote for Hillary Clinton on Election Day,” Senator Sanders told the crowd at Drake University in Iowa, the state where he narrowly lost to Clinton in caucuses in February.

However, despite making case for Clinton this time, Sanders told young voters to “go beyond.”

“Worry about yourself,” Sanders said, prompting bursts of applause.
After Iowa, Senator Sanders hit Wisconsin, where earlier this year he won the state’s primary over Clinton.

Sanders, whose schedule is pretty tight as elections loom, had some time to speak to RT’s Ed Schultz.

@NewswithEd I spoke with @SenSanders on a host of issues. More at 8pm ET tonight. Watch live: https://www.rt.com/on-air/rt-america-air/ 

Ed Schultz:What effect you can think you can have on your voters? It was so close here in Iowa?

Bernier Sanders:I just hope that people that a hard look at the real issues impacting their lives. The middle class, I think, if they do that the choice is going to be very clear on every issue – raising the minimum wage, pay equity for women, rebuilding out crumbling infrastructure, opposition to the TPP and running the campaign not based on bigotry. We cannot elect a president whose cornerstone – the cornerstone of his campaign – is based on bigotry.


ED:We have had some people here tell us that they are going to vote for Hillary because you’ve asked them to.

BS:I want people to vote their own consciousness, but I think that this is an enormously important election. I think that Donald Trump would be a disaster for this country. If you look at the issues that impact ordinary people, whether it is raising the minimum wage, whether they pay equities, whether it is rebuilding our infrastructure, whether it is expanding health care, whether it is making public colleges and universities tuition-free. Those are important issues and there is no question on my mind that Clinton is far in the way the superior candidate. On the other hand, what we have to say is do we want to elect the president like Trump, whose cornerstone of his campaign on bigotry, is on dividing us up; a candidate who attacks and humiliates women every day. I don’t think it is the kind of candidate that we want to elect as president.

ED:Is it hard for you, Senator?

BS:Look, I got seven grandchildren, I got four kids. I do not want them growing up under a Trump presidency, so for me it is not hard. If the question is what I’d rather run for president today, yes, I would have, but I lost and I’m going to do my best to make sure that Hillary Clinton is elected president.

ED:Any thoughts on the debate last night?

BS:We were running around and we did not really have a chance to see it.

ED:Any thoughts on the emails that have come up that talk about that Clinton “pay to play”?

BS:No, not right now.
