While Hillary Clinton’s campaign staffers have publicly attempted to downplay the scandal around her use of a private email server while secretary of state, they acknowledged in private just how damaging the issue could be to Clinton’s political aspirations.
Leaked emails reveal the Clinton campaign actually wanted reporters and the public to focus on the 2012 Benghazi terror attacks — considered one of the darker marks on Hillary’s record as secretary of state — instead of on the private email server.
The emails show a pattern of campaign staffers working to keep the public focus on the Benghazi attacks that left four Americans dead, including U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.
About a month before Hillary’s campaign officially launched, the New York Times reported on March 2, 2015 that she exclusively used a private email for government business while secretary of state. The emails were found during the course of a House investigation into the Benghazi attacks.
Almost immediately after, emails show, Clinton staffers scrambled to keep the focus on follow-up stories on Benghazi and off of Hillary’s private email.
As part of a follow-up story that ran March 23, the NYT submitted three questions to Clinton’s team of staffers: Why did Mrs. Clinton’s staffers at times use their personal accounts to communicate with her? Were all these emails captured in the State Department’s network? Were Mrs. Clinton’s advisers given legal advice about whether it was appropriate for them to correspond with her using their personal accounts?
None of the questions submitted by the NYT focused on (or even mentioned) Benghazi. But Clinton’s team crafted its answers to try and guide the paper into making the story about Benghazi.
While exchanging emails with other staffers including current campaign chairman John Podesta, Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill noted “a few tweaks” he and others had made to the statement.
“Specifically, we added some straight-forward language in the third paragraph that aims to do two things: give this guy some simple context for the emails he references, and nudge this ever-closer to putting it in the Benghazi box,” Merrill said.
The NYT’s story ran with the headline, “In Clinton Emails on Benghazi, a Rare Glimpse at Her Concerns.” Clinton’s team considered that a job well done.
“Nick,” Podesta emailed Merrill about the story, “Great job in fighting this to more or less of a draw.” He added, “this story is smoke without even the warmth of a fire.”
The campaign’s work on the NYT story was consistent with a message Podesta communicated to longtime Clinton aide Cheryl Mills 10 days prior.
“My perspective is that we want the fight to be about Benghazi, not about servers in her basement,” Podesta said.
Clinton’s testimony before the House Select Committee on Benghazi took place on October 22, 2015. In the weeks leading up to her testimony, her campaign looked for the best way to spin the hearings.
One way the campaign did this was through an ad campaign on cable television.
Speaking of the ad campaign, Clinton director of paid media Oren Shur said in an email to senior staffers, “The trick, of course, is to connect Benghazi to emails in a way that’s credible. But we discussed different ways to do it.”
“The difficult part here is testing – if we want to ship something early next week, our testing options are very limited, and I feel like we really need to understand whether voters will believe that we can credibly
conflate Benghazi and emails,” he continued.
Later on the same email thread, discussing which states to buy the ads in, Clinton spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri said,”I am for IA and NH. I know the boss wants a national cable buy to reach the inside the beltway types, press and donors. But press will hate this. We will lose ground with them because of it. (I am still for doing it).”
“If the objective is purely to undermine the Benghazi hearings, I think these spots will certainly help do that,” Shur shot back.
“But if the objective is to connect emails-Benghazi and conflate the two in voters’ minds (which consultants feel is an imperative here), I’m not sure we know whether we can credibly do that – we’ll get a read from groups, but may need to just make a judgement call once we see rough cuts,” he continued.
The FBI recently re-opened its investigation into Clinton’s private email server. (RELATED: Leaked Memo: Hillary Wants Clinton Foundation To Keep Accepting Foreign Donations)
The Clinton Foundation is also currently under investigation from both the IRS and the FBI. (RELATED: Secret Recordings At Center Of FBI Feud With DOJ Over Clinton Foundation Probe)
That was nine days ago, and there has still been no word from (or sightings of) Eric Braverman.
However, a new source within the intelligence community suggests that was misinformation intentionally spread through social media by several sources, and in fact, he is being held in protective custody by the FBI in exchange for his testimony against Hillary Clinton.
“WITH AN INVESTIGATION AT THIS LEVEL, YOU CAN EXPECT UNIQUE SAFEGUARDS TO BE IMPLEMENTED TO PROTECT THEIR WITNESS”
Braverman is the man who exposed the most serious Clinton scandal – the Clinton Foundation.
The internal Clinton Foundation power struggle between Chelsea Clinton and Doug Band was exposed in Wikileaks emails. It began in 2011 when, Chelsea started to take a more prominent role at the Clinton Foundation.
She became increasingly concerned about an internal audit that exposed glaring conflicts of interest throughout the Foundation with an emphasis on Doug Band and his company, Teneo, who she thought had inappropriately sought favors from the State Department during Hillary’s tenure as Secretary of State.
A Politico article from March 2015, summarized Chelsea’s rise at the Foundation and how it threatened some long-time Clinton allies who had grown quite accustomed to the status quo, zero hedge reported.
Veteran Clinton aides had powerful and lucrative positions which they acquired after years with the Clintons. The CEO Bruce Lindsey and President Doug Band felt marginalized by Chelsea Clinton who Band described as an uncaring spoiled brat.
Ira Magaziner is another old-time Clinton colleague who continually shows up in the Wikileaks emails and he too found his role diminished during Braverman’s tenure.
WikiLeaks emails have revealed additional details behind the the man, Eric Braverman, who was brought in as CEO by Chelsea to change the controversial practices of the Foundation but abruptly resigned a short time later after being pushed out by long-time Clinton loyalists who had apparently grown very comfortable with the status quo.
In an email exchange, Neera Tanden the president of CAP, warned John Podesta to “keep tabs on Doug Band who she thought was the insider who told NBC to “follow the money and the find the real HRC scandal”.
John Podesta quickly wrote back to identify the real source as former Clinton Foundation CEO Eric Braverman which shocks Tanden who replies, “Holy Moses.”

BREAKING: Racketeering indictment of Hillary Clinton now “likely” as Datto backup device winds up in the hands of the FBI BREAKING: Racketeering indictment of Hillary Clinton now ‘likely’ as FOIA for Datto backup device reveals FBI possesses ALL the incriminating emails
Natural News can now reveal that dozens of democrat operatives will be facing criminal indictment from damning email evidence that has been in the possession of the FBI for more than a year. The bad news is that such indictments may take months to formally announce, with criminal proceedings requiring years to reach a conclusion. The good news is that Hillary Clinton isn’t going to get away with her criminal racketeering for much longer, as the U.S. intelligence community is now determined to make sure she faces justice regardless of the outcome of next Tuesday’s election.
Here’s the evidence that supports these assertions:
First, FBI sources have told Fox News’ Bret Baier that an indictment is “likely.” From Real Clear Politics:
Sources within the FBI have told him that an indictment is “likely” in the case of pay-for-play at the Clinton Foundation, “barring some obstruction in some way” from the Justice Department. No doubt Loretta Lynch is determined to engage in that obstruction in one form or another, which is probably why Lynch herself may be among those who are eventually indicted for criminal conspiracy.
Second, this Oct. 28 announcement from Dr. Larry Kawa, working in partnership with Judicial Watch, reveals an astonishing discovery: That all of Hillary Clinton’s emails were backed up to a “Datto device” long before she started deleting emails (i.e. destroying evidence).
From the announcement:
Citizen Activist Dr. Larry Kawa of Boca Raton, Florida today announced that he has expanded the scope of his efforts to bring former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s hidden electronic communications to light. He is now calling for full disclosure of a hard drive that was turned over by Datto Inc. to the FBI as of 2015. According to CNN, the contents of the Datto hard drive are believed to contain all of Hillary Clinton’s backed up electronic communications from her time as Secretary of State.
The “Datto device” backups are now in the hands of the FBI
It turns out that Datto, Inc. is a data backup company which had real-time access to Hillary Clinton’s private email server for the purpose of backing up her emails. That backup data set was turned over to the FBI in 2015, but the FBI likely did not realize what they were holding at the time.
It wasn’t until the Clinton Foundation email scandal began to unfold that FBI agents realized what they possessed. Now, it turns out the FBI has been sorting through those emails (and other evidence) for more than a year.
In addition — and this is a real shocker for those who have been following this — the FBI did not destroy the laptops from Clinton’s co-conspirators.
Via Real Clear Politics:
The Clinton Foundation investigation is far more expansive than anybody has reported so far and has been going on for more than a year. The laptops of Clinton aides Cherryl Mills and Heather Samuelson have not been destroyed, and agents are currently combing through them.
Now the FBI has at least FOUR sources of damning emails with overwhelming criminal evidence of Hillary Clinton’s racketeering enterprise
What all this means now is that the FBI has four sources of emails that Hillary Clinton and her close associates attempted to destroy:
Source #1) Anthony Weiner’s laptop, which somehow seems to have held 650,000 of Huma Abedin’s emails, if reports are true, in addition to whatever child sexting pervert pics Weiner himself had collected (yeah, he’s a democrat).
Source #2) The non-destroyed laptops of Cherryl Mills and Heather Samuelson, which the media incorrectly reported had been destroyed as part of the FBI’s investigation “conclusion” earlier this year.
Source #3) The Datto, Inc. backup device which has already been turned over the FBI and likely contains all of Hillary Clinton’s emails that she attempted to destroy (via Bleach Bit).
Source #4) Wikileaks dumps of John Podesta emails which keep getting posted in large batches like clockwork, day after day, revealing astonishing layers of corruption and collusion among dozens of key players conspiring with the Clintons.
From these four sources of emails, an undeniable pattern of criminal racketeering emerges
All this evidence isn’t just going to incriminate Hillary Clinton, by the way: This vast conspiracy of criminal collusion, corruption, pay-to-pay bribery and racketeering will ensnare dozens — if not hundreds — of DNC operatives and Clinton Foundation cohorts. (Can we please release some non-violent drug offenders from the prisons to make room for the Clinton brigade?)
In case you didn’t already realize this, we’re now watching the uncovering of a massive criminal conspiracy involving hundreds of willing participants, spanning the DNC, the Dept. of Justice, the White House, the Clinton Foundation and of course the State Department. When it’s all said and done, this will be the largest criminal conspiracy ever uncovered in the history of the United States of America. And it was all masterminded by a woman who claims that her vagina gives her some sort of special privilege to ascend to power in America.
The only downside to all this is that it might take years to fully prosecute the criminal cases against these Clinton criminals, and no doubt many of those who are guilty of committing these crimes will go free in exchange for testifying against their racketeering bosses. But the Clinton house of cards is now destined to fall, eventually ending one of the most shocking and dark chapters of American history and government corruption.
Hillary Clinton’s private email server was hacked by FIVE foreign intelligence agencies, says FBI source
Beyond everything mentioned above, Hillary Clinton’s illegal private email server has long since been compromised by multiple foreign intelligence agencies, allowing any of them to easily BLACKMAIL Clinton if she were to become President.
Via Real Clear Politics:
FBI sources say with 99% accuracy that Hillary Clinton’s server has been hacked by at least five foreign intelligence agencies, and that information had been taken from it.
This means that from the very first moment Hillary Clinton might seize power in Washington D.C., she would be at the mercy of Chinese, Russian, North Korean or possibly even Iranian political leaders who would issue blackmail threats against her unless she granted them requested political favors.
Notably, the entire leftist media is communicating absolutely none of this to its readers and viewers, counting on the true fact that most Clinton supporters are too stupid or too self-deluded to understand the high stakes game of international geopolitics. As a result, people who continue to say they support Hillary Clinton are, astonishingly, helping elect a criminal kingpin into the highest office the land… even as she has already been deeply compromised by foreign enemies that seek the outright destruction of the United States.
This is likely why the U.S. intelligence services — part of the “deep state” apparatus — has now turned against Hillary Clinton and has made a decision to take her down. What every informed person now realizes — both in government and outside it — is that Hillary Clinton poses a clear and present danger to the national security of the United States of America, and that allowing her to seize power in Washington would spell outright doom for the nation and its people.
Why the Huffington Post is also a danger to America
Remember this as you browse the internet: Every website that’s trying to get Clinton elected, including the Huffington Post, is working to place a seditious racketeering criminal into the highest office of the land. Such malicious acts are, in their own right, serious crimes against America, yet they characterize the entire delusional left-wing media and blogosphere, widely populated by academics who are so ignorant about the real world that they are incapable of recognizing the rise of a fascist, totalitarian regime even as it emerges in front of their very eyes.
Universities no longer teach students anything about the real world, you see, so a person can emerge from a top-tier university with a PhD while being so ignorant and deluded about reality that they would gladly vote for another Adolf Hitler if he dressed up in rainbow colors, chanted “love wins” and claimed to be transgender. (Bonus question: Could a biological man with a penis claim to self-identify as a woman and run for office under the premise of being the first “woman” president? Cognitively obedient liberals — who are all completely insane morons — would no doubt vote for the “woman,” achieving the incredible distinction of placing the first female into the White House who also had a scrotum and could pee standing up. Liberal historians take note… this is somehow called “equality…”)
Every website rooting for Hillary Clinton is blindly pursuing the total damnation of America, all under the guise of “social justice” or the silly pursuit of the “first female President” as if possessing a vagina is some sort of magical qualification for political superiority.
Imagine their mutual surprise when they soon discover that a vagina-possessing liberal politician turned out to be the most corrupt, dishonest and dangerous presidential candidate in history… a woman who created a massive criminal cartel and collected hundreds of millions of dollars in illegal profits while selling government influence to the highest international bidders. No penis required. So much for the glass ceiling theory, eh?
In summary, Hillary Clinton is a woman who once held the world by the balls… but then had to let go when the stank of her own putrid crimes was too much to stomach any longer. In the end, she will be remembered as nothing more than a crotchety old hag with a reptilian appetite for power and a sickening disregard for humankind. Prepare your in-flight vomit bags, folks, because this final approach to election day is going to involve nauseating turbulence and more than a few stomach-churning freefalls.

The cyber hacker group Anonymous says there is video of Bill Clinton raping a 13 year-old girl on Jeffrey Epstein’s “Orgy Island.” The eerie video which includes the announcement appeared moments ago on Youtube.
Anonymous claims the video was shot by Israeli Intelligence and was kept secret.
To hear her tell it, Big Pharma is in the regulatory crosshairs of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. She says she’s had enough of their ‘price-gouging’ ways, and plans to ‘reign in’ their consumer-harming policies.
If you believe that, there’s a bridge in the middle of nowhere to buy. The fact is, neither is Clinton going to “reign in” drug companies, nor is there a widespread problem with “price-gouging,” as she claims. The truth lies somewhere in-between, but make no mistake about it: A President Hillary Clinton isn’t about to attack a major benefactor.
The fact is, as noted in a newly released white paper by Natural News‘ partner site, News Target, which covers politics, technology and other subjects not dealt with here, Clinton is wholly owned and in the pocket of Big Pharma. In fact, the paper points out, she is the presidential candidate who has received the most in donations from pharmaceutical companies during the current election cycle.
Nevertheless, she is still pretending that she’s the answer to skyrocketing drug prices and price-gouging by pharmaceutical firms, having laid out a ‘major plan’ to combat both issues if she wins in November.
What’s more, the plan she laid out is telling in terms of what kind of president she would be: Like Obama, another Democrat, her approach to policy is the adoption of punitive, harsh regulatory measures that punish industries rather than implementing policies that empower industries to find their own free-market solutions which also benefit consumers.
Government needs to get out of the ‘punishing industry’ business
As reported by Zero Hedge, Clinton’s “fairness doctrine” for Big Pharma involves an “aggressive new set of enforcement tools,” including the levying of fines and imposition of stiff penalties on drug makers when some government bureaucrat self-determines that there has been an “unjustified, outlier price increase.”
This is akin to government-imposed price controls, which is precisely what is going on down in Venezuela, where the people are now so poor, deprived and fed up with similar policies adopted by their government, they they just chased their president out of town, fearing for his life.
“Over the past year, we’ve seen far too many examples of drug companies raising prices excessively for long-standing, life-saving treatments with little or no new innovation or R&D,” Clinton said in a statement.
In the past, lawmakers have refused to go along with government price controls on much of anything, but especially on drug companies. Most in office now are aware of one government-imposed pressure on the health industry in general – Obamacare – that is causing prices to spiral upward, for services, for insurance premiums and for drugs. In fact, nothing President Obama and fellow Democrats promised the law would accomplish – lower out-of-pocket costs, improve access to care and overall coverage – has come true.
Drug makers themselves have argued that government-imposed price controls are also impediments to research and development. But never fear; Clinton and her big government cadre know best.
Plan? There is no ‘plan’ for Big Pharma
“Our pharmaceutical and biotech industries are an incredible source of American innovation and revolutionary treatments for debilitating diseases,” said Clinton. “But I’m ready to hold drug companies accountable when they try to put profits ahead of patients, instead of back into research and innovation.”
Clinton – whose only “business” enterprise is her family’s foundation which, as noted in the News Target white paper, was used constantly as a “pay-for-play” enterprise – has never opened, owned or operated a business. So she obviously doesn’t understand that profits are not simply used for “research and innovation,” but also for expansion and growth, which then leads to more jobs and opportunities for people.
Also, as the Manhattan Institute notes, government-imposed price controls actually harmpatients, so Clinton is wrong on both counts.
But the fact is, her “plan” is bogus anyway, because she has no intention of biting the Big Pharma hand that helps feed her, her campaign and her family’s foundation.

Another day, another made-up “illness” attributed to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
In recent days, you may recall that several news agencies reported, then downplayed, a episode of near-collapse and fainting Clinton suffered after having to leave a commemoration ceremony for the victims of the 9/11 attacks in New York City. As Natural News editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger and author of the new book “Food Forensics,” noted this week, Clinton resembled “the walking dead.” So out of it was she that she had to be helped into a waiting SUV by Secret Service personnel who, no doubt, are getting tired of medically babysitting a grown woman.
The story that the campaign put out – and most Left-leaning “mainstream” media outlets lapped up – was that Clinton was suffering from “pneumonia” and was dehydrated. Only, that makes no sense for one reason in particular: Clinton, if she really had walking pneumonia, would have been contagious. So, as The American Mirror has recently pointed out, why would she be hugging children, as evidenced in news videos?
Would a grandmother who is contagious expose a child?
As the ABC News video posted on The American Mirror site shows, Clinton – as she left the apartment of her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, where she “recovered” after her “medical incident” – exclaimed, “I’m feeling great!” and was seen embracing a child on the street in what many believe was a staged event, the Mirror reported.
In addition, daughter Chelsea has two small children in her apartment as well.
According to health experts, “walking pneumonia” is the least serious strain of the bacterial infection, but it can nevertheless be contagious, and children can be particularly vulnerable. So it makes you wonder why a candidate with a contagious disease would so nonchalantly expose a child to the infection if in fact that’s what was wrong with Clinton.
But again, this is just the latest “illness excuse” being given for Clinton’s erratic and medically questionable behavior. As Bugout.news reported recently, Clinton has had to be helped by Secret Service and other aides in the past. Plus, she has told the FBI during interviews this past year that she couldn’t remember details surrounding her use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state (due to her previous head injury), and has blamed all of her coughing fits on “allergies.”
The signs of medical incompetence are right in front of us
As to the unsteadiness on her feet, Adams made observations about why she had to be helped up a short flight of steps by aides and US Secret Service agents:
For at least the last five years, scary signs of Hillary Clinton’s plummeting health have continued to emerge. From her bizarre in-speech “blackouts” to her repeated monstrous coughing fits and her seizure-like bobble head behavior, many people have legitimately wondered whether Hillary Clinton is in the midst of a neurological or cognitive collapse.
Now…photos have emerged showing Hillary Clinton unable to walk up a flight of stairs without being buttressed by strong-armed men.
In addition, these facts make it clear the woman has problems:
A Secret Service agent has confirmed Clinton’s major medical issues, including that she has Parkinson’s disease, according to a video report by Dr. Ted Noel, a medical doctor, for VidZette.com.
While stating that he’s not her treating physician, Noel nonetheless agrees with the observation that she appears to be dealing with Parkinson’s. Other trained medical observers have opined that she may be suffering from Subcortical Vascular Dementia which usually gives patients just a 3-5 year life expectancy.
It’s undeniable that Clinton is suffering from major medical issues that, frankly, make her unfit to serve as our next president. If she is so sensitive to various allergens, cannot campaign without getting pneumonia, can’t walk up a flight of steps and has trouble remembering details, she obviously cannot stand up to the rigors of the Oval Office.

Roughly 43 million people in the United States are at risk of anaphylactic reactions, and the high price of EpiPens is placing life-saving medication beyond their reach.
On August 24, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called Mylan’s pricing “outrageous,” saying, “It’s just the latest troubling example of a company taking advantage of its consumers.”
What Clinton did not mention is that Mylan has a history of donating to the Clinton Foundation.
Mylan lobbying yields results
Mylan was already hiking EpiPen prices in 2009, when it participated in a Clinton Foundation effort to lower the cost of HIV drugs. Mylan agreed to bring the price of four drugs to 28 percent lower than the competition. It is unclear if that promise was ever kept.
Clinton Foundation records also show that Mylan has donated between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Foundation, but do not state when the money was received. Mylan CEO Heather Bresch is also the daughter of West Virginia senator and Clinton supporter Joe Manchin.
The revelations may fuel concerns about the inter-connectedness of the Clintons with Big Pharma and other large financial interests. And they may reflect Mylan’s proven strategy of peddling political influence for financial gain.
Shortly after acquiring EpiPen, Mylan increased its lobbying spending from $270,000 (in 2007) to $1.2 million (in 2008). The results of this lobbying included new FDA recommendations that EpiPens be sold two to a package (instead of one), and that the devices be prescribed not just to people with confirmed allergies, but to all patients considered “at-risk.” Congress also passed a law designating large grants to states that required schools to keep EpiPens on hand.
Company profits, patients lose
There’s no doubt that Mylan’s policies have yielded enormous returns. The company’s stock price has more than tripled since 2007, and 40 percent of its profits now come from EpiPen sales.
During the same time period, executive salaries ballooned. Bresch’s salary rose from $2.4 million in 2007, to $19 million in 2015 – a nearly 700 percent increase!
“This outrageous increase in the price of EpiPens is occurring at the same time that Mylan … is exploiting a monopoly market advantage that has fallen into its lap,” said Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., who has called on the Federal Trade Commission to investigate.
Mylan’s profits are ensured by EpiPen’s patented-drug delivery system, which makes it hard for new competitors to break into the market. The drug inside EpiPens – epinephrine – is actually a very inexpensive generic drug. It is chemically identical to the hormone adrenaline, which fills a wide variety of functions in the body.
Supplements such as Adrenal Strength are said to replenish the body and promote a healthy stress response.
In spite of a firestorm of criticism, Mylan still refuses to lower the drugs’ price. Instead, it has begun issuing $300-off coupons for EpiPens, as well as promising to offer the devices free to anyone making up to 400 percent of the federal poverty line. But critics charge that such policies unfairly place the burden on patients to learn about and apply for discounts – and that they do not spare pharmacies or insurers the full price of the drug. The company still makes its outlandish profit.
Mylan also boasts of giving away 700,000 free EpiPens to schools over the past four years. But critics note that the company reaps enormous tax benefits from such policies; in fact, Mylan actually received a tax refund in 2014 – as well as free advertising.
And the majority of schools that stock EpiPens are still paying through the nose.

Pharmaceutical companies have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars in the 2016 presidential election cycle. Guess which presidential candidate accepted far more campaign cash than any other from Big Pharma? The money went to…drum roll please...Hillary Clinton. What’s more, Clinton says she’s proud to have drug companies as her enemies.
Those who think you can’t buy position in America are sorely mistaken. If there was truly any democracy left in this country, then I’d like for someone to show me.
If we are supposed to be a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives, how does Cargill, Ely Lilly, or Turing Pharmaceutical get to determine who runs the country?
Clinton has been acting as though she has a tough stance on the industry, especially after news of Turing Pharmaceutical’s CEO Martin Shkreli increasing the price of an HIV drug called Daraprim by nearly 5,000%. But the money trail tells a different story.
Clinton accepted $164,315 in the first six months of her campaign for President from drug companies, according to an analysis by Stat News.
Clinton unveiled a plan to combat rising drug prices by clamping down on the rules for pharmaceuticals, and in a recent Democratic debate, she listed off drug companies among the enemies she is most proud to have made in politics. Really?
See Clinton at 0:31 in the democratic debate from October, 2015:
These big, bad companies continue to be big spenders, donating $951,018 to presidential candidates in the 2016 presidential election, according to the Center for Responsive Politics and the Federal Election Commission – including to her campaign.
Clinton collected $336,416 in donations from the pharma/health industry, over a third of the total contributions during the 2016 presidential campaign. The next biggest recipient was Republican candidate Jeb Bush, who collected less than half the amount of Clinton. Trump received a whopping $1001 – enough to buy one Daraprim pill.
These donations don’t include the big money corporations spend on lobbying Congress as well. For example, Pfizer, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies, spent more than $10 million in lobbying efforts last year.
Big Pharma bets on established candidates that they think they can influence once they are in office. Scott Swenson, vice president for communications for Common Cause, a nonprofit political watchdog group, says:
“Established industries and lobbies give primarily to establishment candidates that they perceive will be leaders and eventual nominees.”
The health industry overall — combining health professionals, hospitals, HMOs and pharmaceutical companies — donated over $9.5 million to the 2016 presidential candidates, making it the third largest donating industry. Clinton is still the top beneficiary from this group, receiving more than $3.5 million in donations.
Clinton is also a big supporter for Big Biotech and GMOs – check it.

A report by the Hill suggests the big money Republican donors are actually looking to support Hillary Clinton for commander in chief if Trump is at the top of the GOP ticket. Yes, the Democrat Hillary Clinton could be getting millions of dollars from Republicans.
The website says: “In conversations over the past month, GOP establishment donors have confided to the Hill that for the first time in recent memory, they find themselves contemplating not supporting a Republican nominee for president.”
When asked for whom he would cast his vote if the choices are only Mrs. Clinton and Trump, the former mayor of Los Angeles and a longtime Republican establishment figure, Dick Riordan, said: “I would probably go find a deserted island.”
“I think Hillary is disgusting,” Riordan told the Hill. “And I think Trump is crazy.”
The paper says Trump was the topic at a recent Beverly Hills lunch hosted by former U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Rockwell Schnabel.
In attendance in a private dining room of the Hotel Bel-Air were powerful donors said to include Ronald Spogli, the venture capitalist and former ambassador to Italy under President George W. Bush; his business partner Bradford Freeman; and Riordan.
The donors reportedly faced the hypothetical question: “If it was Donald Trump running against Hillary Clinton, who would you vote for?”
The Hill reports:
One version has it that most of the Republicans at the table put their hands up for Clinton.
Schnabel disputes that account and said in a telephone interview Tuesday that it was just banter among friends and that he is confident that all the Republicans at the table would support the final GOP nominee for president, whomever that turns out to be.
Schnabel called back later on Tuesday afternoon to clarify what he meant. “My only caveat would be that … I assume that the Republican we’ll nominate will be somebody that would make a great president,” he said. “That’s not a conversation we’ve had to have in the past, but obviously there are some we would be concerned about.”
The hesitation among establishment GOP donors comes as no surprise to Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s campaign manager.
“The GOP establishment will do anything they can to stop Mr. Trump from being the GOP nominee,” Lewandowski told the Hill.
“Mr. Trump is the only one who is not controlled by the special interests. … They want a puppet that they can control, and Donald Trump will never be that person.”

Not all big GOP donors, though, are sour on the New York businessman.
Billionaire investor Carl Icahn and Doug Manchester, a California developer and chairman of Manchester Financial Group, are among those in Trump’s corner.
“I met with Donald himself and was again very impressed with a Man [sic] who does not have to be doing what he is but believes as I do that we need to Make America great again and believe he can do it!!” Manchester wrote to friends in an email seen by the Hill.
“As all of you know I was all in for Mitt but unfortunately he did not make it!!”
“I think Trump can win,” Manchester added
Hillary Clinton vaccine-damaged? Severe brain damage symptoms suffered by former Secretary of State revealed in new book
A new book astonishingly claims that Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton is suffering from a plethora of health issues, leading some to believe that perhaps she is unfit to lead the country.
According to excerpts from the book Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary that were published by Radar Online, 67-year-old Clinton has been “frequently plagued” by “blinding headaches” and even small strokes over the course of her campaign, ailments that have left her second-guessing her chances of winning the presidency in 2016.
Incidents were kept secret
“For the first time I’ve known her, she’s showing self-doubt about her strength and vitality,” a friend of Clinton’s told author Edward Klein, who has penned tomes about the Obamas and Kennedys previously.
The Democratic frontrunner – who has been slipping in some polls for months – has also been dealing with bouts of insomnia that have “worried her, because it sapped her energy just when she needed it most for the campaign,” writes Klein.
“She is exhausted and depressed a lot of the time,” according to a friend who is not named but quoted, adding that Clinton has even resorted to taking sleeping pills to deal with the problem, but they have not been helping.
“She said they made her less sharp the next day,” the friend said.
In late 2012, Clinton suffered from a life-threatening blood clot in her brain that has since left her “constantly worried” she will eventually have to deal with another one, Klein asserts.
For her part, Clinton says she’s in great health and has released a letter from her doctor over the summer alleging her fitness.
As noted by the New York Post:
Dr. Lisa Bardack of Mount Kisco, NY, outlined Clinton’s medical history, which included her treatment for a brain concussion, an analysis of blood clots affecting her legs and brain on separate occasions, an underactive thyroid gland examination, and a complete family history of heart disease.
Klein, however, says Clinton is really just keeping her ailments a secret – like her emails when she served as Secretary of State.
“There were incidents on the campaign trail when she felt faint and nearly swooned,” he claimed. “Those incidents were kept secret.”
According to Radar Online, an insider says that Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, even sleeps in her room to keep a closer eye on her.
Should she command when she can’t even remain upright?
The site noted:
Clinton has a history of blackouts, falls, memory loss, blinding headaches, vision problems and collapses dating back at least a decade. In 2005, she fainted during a luncheon speech in Buffalo, N.Y. Four years later, then–Secretary of State Clinton broke her right elbow in a mysterious fall in a U.S. State Department garage. In 2011, Clinton collapsed while boarding a flight in Yemen, but insisted she’d simply slipped.
As Natural News has reported, Clinton is also exhibiting all the signs of vaccine poisoning, which can cause brain damage.
In an interview over the summer during what her spokespeople billed as a “listening tour” in New Hampshire, Clinton seemed more like someone stricken with a medical condition than a potential leader who was interested in what people have to say.
A video of Clinton sitting with a half-dozen “everyday Americans” at a children’s toy and furniture factory shows her uttering the phrase, “uh-huh” a whopping 88 times. The response appeared to be “a nervous tic” that the former first lady and U.S. senator from New York has developed, The Daily Caller observed.
Is this who we really want to control the military, decide whether or when to use nuclear weapons, deal with foreign leaders and trust to make leadership decisions that are in our country’s best interests?
