On Friday, October 7th, Wikileaks published the first of many batches of John Podesta’s emails that were received between 2007 to the current present. Journalists around the world and the investigative community soon went to work on these emails.
It was then discovered that excerpts of Clinton’s speeches to big donors, banks and other major events had been found on that email account.
Some of the speeches contained information that may hint that Clinton is not for the American people, but rather major corporate interests and the satisfaction of her donors both to her campaign and Foundation.
I have taken most of these speeches in these emails and I am going to break them down for you.
In this Speech, Clinton admitted that she is not in sync with the struggles of the Middle class bay saying, “I’m kind of far removed from the struggles of the middle class because the life I’ve lived and the economic fortunes That my husband an I now enjoy.
She also admitted that her father ranted about Big government and Business, likely signaling that she may have been a republican at one point, even being a vocal supporter of Barry Goldwater.
She brags about how she is lucky to be in the fortunes that she enjoys now and even states that she she didn’t want to take a position on any policy, but acknowledged growing concerns of the American People.
One of the more well known speeches that has circulated the internet is this speech given in 2013, Which Clinton talks about Public and Private policy positions.
Clinton States: “But If Everybody’s Watching, You Know, All Of The Back Room Discussions And The Deals, You Know, Then People Get A Little Nervous, To Say The Least. So, You Need Both A Public And A Private Position.”
Clinton tries to defend this by talking about the Story behind the Spielberg movie, “Lincoln.”
Clinton said it is necessary to have a Private and public position in order to get deals done, especially in back-room deals.
Here, Clinton talks about Holding wall street accountable, but only for an advantage in the political arena.
“Clinton Said That The Blame Placed On The United States Banking System For The Crisis “Could Have Been Avoided In Terms Of Both Misunderstanding And Really Politicizing What Happened.” This suggests that the blame could have been put on the banking systems in order to politicize the event and perk up those in congress for their re-election bids
Clinton Stated directly: “And I think that there’s a lot that could have been avoided in terms of both misunderstanding and really politicizing what happened with greater transparency, with greater openness on all sides, you know, what happened, how did it happen, how do we prevent it from happening?”
This likely means that Clinton and other congressmen and women tried to use this in order to make her look like an expert on financials.
She also stated that she wanted to spread that, even if it wasn’t true, that the game is rigged and that the system is wired against the middle class.
Ironically, the next speech talks about how insiders are needed to fix the Wall street crisis. Clinton referenced Teddy Roosevelt, who had contradicting views to Clinton, especially about the economy and foreign policy.
Clinton also suggested that the best way to fix the issue is to get insiders to help them create policies, since “People that know the industry better than everybody are the people that work in the industry.”
It would be better for the interest of the world for this to happen, according to Clinton’s speeches, and also stated that Regulations are nothing special and that it’s hard to get they golden key.
Clinton also admitted to needing funds from Wall Street in New York in order to keep her campaign afloat in 2008 and in 2016.
“Secondly, running for office in our country takes a lot of money, and candidates have to go out and raise it. New York is probably the leading site for contributions for fundraising for candidates on both sides of the aisle, and it’s also our economic center. And there are a lot of people here who should ask some tough questions before handing over campaign contributions to people who were really playing chicken with our whole economy.” Clinton Said.
This could also reference big Wall Street Executives, CEOs, presidents, special interests and other big businesses and people.
She also went on to say: “I mean, in my campaign — I lose track, but I think I raised $250 million or some such enormous amount, and in the last campaign President Obama raised 1.1 billion, and that was before the Super PACs and all of this other money just rushing in…it would be very difficult to run for president without raising a huge amount of money and without having other people supporting you because your opponent will have their supporters.”
Basically, A Cry for donors and special interests to get money in order to win the primaries and the General Election.
2nd Part will be Up soon.
