Elder Patriot – At this point the charges of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia should be laughable. The accusers are so devoid of evidence that they have turned to a $100,000 ad buy that Russia made from Facebook that apparently favored neither candidate.
These same watch guards of American democracy have turned a blind eye to the claims of the Washington-based Institute for Gulf Affairs that re-published the original Arabic Petra report, quoting Prince Mohammed as having said Saudi Arabia had provided with “full enthusiasm” an undisclosed amount of money to Clinton.
Saudi Arabia’s Prince Mohammed bragged that, “Saudi Arabia always has sponsored both [the] Republican and Democratic Party of America and in America [the] current election also provide with full enthusiasm 20 percent of the cost of Hillary Clinton’s election even though some events in the country don’t have a positive look to support the king of a woman (sic) for presidency.”
According to the US Federal Election commission, over the past two years Clinton had raised a little more than $211.8 million by June of 2016. Twenty percent of this sum is $42.4 million. That was prior to Hillary accepting the Democrat’s presidential nomination. The big bucks flowed after she had been officially nominated.
Considering Hillary Clinton spent well in excess of $1 billion on her campaign the Russian ad buy, even if were wholly negative against her which it wasn’t, amounted to 1/10,000th of the effect her dollars should’ve bought.
If the Saudi claim is true, and no one has refuted its veracity, the influence of the Saudi’s – just on direct campaign donations – was 420 times that of any influence the Russians bought with their money.
This incredibly ignores the massive donations to the Clinton Foundation that caused the New York Times to ask:
“…a more pressing question: how her administration would handle longtime donors seeking help from the United States, or whose interests might conflict with the country’s own.
“The Clinton Foundation has accepted tens of millions of dollars from countries that the State Department — before, during and after Mrs. Clinton’s time as secretary — criticized for their records on sex discrimination and other human-rights issues. The countries include Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Brunei and Algeria.”
Aside from the fact that It is illegal in the United States for foreign countries to try to influence the outcome of elections by funding candidates the uproar over the Russian’s ad buy, while ignoring the influence of the Saudi’s who actually funded the most deadly attack on the continental United States amounts to nothing more than a thinly-veiled smokescreen to obscure the truth.
If there was no mainstream media to color the narrative and obscure the facts from the public every person with a modicum of intelligence and honesty would be focused on the Mid-Eastern money where we have been engaged in our nation’s longest war since 2003.
The real enemies aren’t the Saudi’s or their Middle East partners, the real enemies are the Washington elite who accept the money and then attack our president for trying to restore America’s greatness after decades of watching the deliberate erosion of it under the influence of hostile foreign powers.
The Saudi’s want to build a pipeline to gain efficient access to Europe so that they can challenge Russia’s hold over the European oil market. You can draw your own conclusions about why Hillary and Obama invaded Syria. A map is included for your convenience.
The problem the elites have with President Trump is that he wants the United States to become an oil exporter and that threatens the flow of Saudi money that has bribed the congressional and senatorial sellouts to turn our military, our EPA, and our foreign policy into agents serving the financial interests of Middle Eastern governments.
