There's A Table In Hell Reserved For The Clintons

Remember the good old days?

Remember when the Chinese intercontinental ballistic missile program was measured in the length of a football field instead of leagues?

Remember when we all assumed that the highest political positions in this country would not sell out our national interests to the highest bidder?

I remember. So does the Washington Examiner.
Foreign donors are refusing to say why they sent millions of dollars in 2014 to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.

Of 38 donors listed on the foundation's website who were contacted by the Washington Examiner,18 declined to answer at all, and the other 18 either responded suspiciously or stuck to generalities and refused to address follow-up questions.
Why are we surprised? The shock value of the Clinton Foundation's mendacity/perfidy (running out of descriptive nouns here - someone give me a hand) should have been anticipated given the massive transfer of missile/nuclear weapons technology that occurred during Billy Jeff's administration.

Clinton was in office three years when the crash of a People's Republic of China Hughes/Loran satellite launch (February 1996) alerted American officials that the PRC had obtained sensitive missile technology and encryption techniques from US corporations.

This investigation lead to other startling revelations. The Chinese had gained access to US neutron bomb technology as well as the W-88 warhead. The Hughes and Loral Corporations had assisted the PRC in developing the capabilities of their missiles.

Still, the Clinton administration stymied investigative efforts to uncover the theft of nuclear secrets and refused to initiate recommendations for background checks of foreign visitors to the nation's nuclear laboratories for 17  months.

Much of this is documented in the Cox Report, otherwise known as the Report of the Select Committee on U.S. National Security and Military/Commercial Concerns with the People's Republic of China.

And what did Clinton do after the uproar of the Cox Report? He approved the transfer of even more technology to China.
WASHINGTON, May 10— The Clinton Administration notified Congress today that it had approved the export of technology to China to permit the launching of a communications satellite aboard a Chinese rocket next month.

President Clinton said in a letter to Congress that the transfer would not harm national security or significantly improve China's military capability in space. The President was required under a 1998 law to certify that all such technology exports are in the national interest.

The certification was the first such notice to Congress under the law, which was passed in the aftermath of a Congressional uproar last year over the transfer of sensitive missile technology to China.

Mr. Clinton's notification also follows by less than a week the release of a report by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, which concluded that lax monitoring of the launching of American-made satellites aboard Chinese rockets had enhanced the accuracy of China's ballistic missile arsenal.
There's more here and here.

And who was the President's National Security Advisor during this period? The person assisting the President in developing a rational response to this incursion into America's most sensitive military technology? Why none other than Mr. Sandy "Hot Pockets" Berger, who was caught stealing and destroying classified documents from the National Archives.
According to reports from the Inspector General of the National Archives and the staff of the House of Representatives' Government Operations Committee, Mr. Berger, while acting as former President Clinton's designated representative to the commission investigating the attacks of September 11, 2001, illegally took confidential documents from the Archives on more than one occasion. He folded documents in his clothes, snuck them out of the Archives building, and stashed them under a construction trailer nearby until he could return, retrieve them, and later cut them up. After he was caught, he lied to the investigators and tried to shift blame to Archive employees.
Now let's return to another transfer, this time of cash from the Chinese to the Clinton's; back to the Washington Examiner article.
The importance of who gave to the foundation and why was highlighted this week when CBS News revealed that one donor in 2013 was Rilin Enterprises. Rilin is headed by Wang Wienlang, a Chinese businessman who was invited to join the National Peoples' Congress as a delegate in the same year as he made the donation.

Rilin is close to China's national security and intelligence agencies. Besides the $2 million given to the Clintons' foundation, Rilin also spent at least another $1.4 million in 2012 lobbying Congress and the U.S. State Department, of which Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.
And that's just one. single. donor.

Here's another; Bernard Schwartz, of Loral Space and Communications Corporation - the guy whose satellite crash opened up this can of worms. He's a big time donor for Clinton and the dems:
In June 1994, Bernard L. Schwartz, the chairman of Loral Corp., wrote his first six-figure check to the Democratic Party, donating $100,000 to the Democratic National Committee.

Around the same time, Schwartz asked to be included on a trade mission being organized by then-Commerce Secretary Ronald H. Brown to China, where his company hoped to win a piece of the growing telecommunications market. On the trip, Brown arranged a meeting for Schwartz and a rival industry executive with the Chinese communications minister – a session that, as Schwartz recalled it yesterday, "helped open doors that were not open before."

The Clinton administration has been good to Bernard Schwartz, and he to it. Schwartz, a lifelong Democrat and longtime political donor, dramatically ratcheted up his giving after President Clinton took office, contributing a total of more than $1 million to Democratic party committees since then.
More on Schwartz' political donations here. It's amazing how those donations decreased once Billy Jeff left the Oval Office and Loral Space was no longer under government scrutiny.

The Clintons are rolling in cash. The Chinese gained billions and billions of dollars in American military technology created through the largesse of American taxpayers and we didn't even get a fucking eggroll out of it.
