Will Massive Email Leak Create Problems for Clinton?

john-podesta-1On Friday, WikiLeaks began releasing thousands of emails from the account of John Pedestal, Clinton’s campaign chairman. The emails point to unethical issues within the campaign and call into question Clinton’s bigotry and her goals for the presidency.

WikiLeaks has been dropping thousands every day, and it is a challenge for the media to keep up. Thus far, the mainstream has done little to cover the story.

Here is a summary of just a few emails:

  • On the goal to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry

From: Bill Ivey (Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts during Clinton’s presidency)
To: John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Chairman
March 13, 2016.

“We’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry. The unawareness remains strong but compliance is obviously fading rapidly…”

  • On Clinton’s opinion of everyday Americans

From: John Podesta
To: Jennifer Palmieri (Clinton’s Director of Communications) April 19, 2015

“I know she has begun to hate everyday Americans, but I think we should use it once the first time she says I’m running for president because you everyday Americans need a champion.

“I think if she doesn’t say it once, people will notice and say we false started in Iowa.”

Palmieri responded: “Truth.”

  • On Their Opinion of Conservative Catholics

From: John Halpin (Senior Fellow at American Progress)
To: John Podesta
Monday, April 11, 2011

“Many of the most powerful elements of the conservative movement are all Catholic (many converts) … It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith. They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy.”

The email was forwarded to Palmieri, who responded,

“I imagine they think it is the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion. Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelicals.”

Trump is using these leaks in his campaign. On Tuesday, he told his audience in Lakeland, FL, “This just shows the hatred the Clinton campaign has for everyday, faithful Americans.”

The Clinton Camp says Trump Colluded with Russians

The Clinton campaign has maintained that Trump is being supported by Russia, and Russia is behind the hacks that have produced these leaks.

Hillary has taken a stand against Russia, and said so in the debate Sunday night. Clinton said that as president, she would call for a no-fly zone over Syria. That essentially means the U.S. would shoot down any Russian aircraft. The Russian reaction was summarized by a government newscaster who said this type of “impudent behavior could have nuclear implications.”

Consider the current state of Russia-U.S. relations:

  • Russia is blamed for Wikileaks emails
  • Russia is blamed for hacking DNC emails
  • Russia practiced nuclear emergency drills with millions of its citizens last week
  • The U.S. and Russia suspended diplomatic talks regarding Syria last week
  • Russia instructed all government officials to call family members home because of rising tensions with the West over the bombing of Aleppo and the Syrian war
  • Two U.S. military B-2 Spirit bombers dropped nuclear test bombs in the Nevada desert last week.

Emails Expose Clinton’s Deal with Russia

Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State when a company called “Uranium One” was sold to the Russian government. This gave Russia control over 20 percent of the uranium production in the U. S. The deal had to approved by Clinton’s State Department and the Committee on Foreign Investments which is comprised by the secretaries of Treasury, Defense, Homeland Security, Commerce, and Energy. Uranium is necessary for the production of nuclear weapons.

As Russia began taking control of Uranium One, millions of dollars were donated to the Clinton Foundation. The donors, including Uranium One’s chairman, were directly connected to the deal. None of the names were publicly disclosed by the Clintons–even though she had promised otherwise.

This was exposed in a New York Times article in April, and was seemingly confirmed in Podesta’s emails.

Here is a partial timeline:

  • Canadian head of Uranium One, Ian Telfar, donates less than $250,000 to Clinton Foundation in 2007
  • Telfar donates $2.4 million more from 2009 to 2012
  • Bill Clinton is paid $500,000 for his speech in Moscow by a Russian investment bank tied to the government.
  • The same month, June 2010, Russian company Rosatom gets majority stake in Uranium One, however the deal needs approval from the Committee on Foreign Investment. This is while Hillary is secretary of state.
  • Four months later, the committee approves the deal.

Continue to pray for the election, especially congressional offices. God always responds to our prayers when we are humble, repent and turn from wickedness. I have spend lots of hours looking into the conduct of our country and find credible sources that point to the U.S. as the problem in the Middle East. Therefore, I am asking each of us to repent for hypocrisy in the church and any in our own lives. It’s easy to point fingers at others and forget just how much we have been forgiven. We place ourselves in the position of judge–and that belongs to God alone.

Our Father is the God of second chances (and third, fourth, 100th!) Thanks to Jesus, we have been cleared of all wrong-doing.

Is. 33:14-15 – The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;
