Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation as Russians Pressed for Control of Uranium Company

The headline in Pravda trumpeted President Vladimir V. Putin’s latest coup, its nationalistic fervor recalling an era when the newspaper served as the official mouthpiece of the Kremlin: “Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.”

The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.

But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.

At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One.

Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.

And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.

There is a lot more and I haven’t digested it yet. This isn’t coming from The Wall Street Journal or some other conservative newspaper, it’s the New York Freaking Times.

Meanwhile, Hillary’s Minions are denying all wrongdoing on her behalf. Nothing to see here. These aren’t the droids you’re looking for. Move along.

            Lulu, I remember that story as well. Krauthammer wrote about it: “Barack Obama -Drone Warrior’
            WASHINGTON — A very strange story, a 6,000-word front-page New York Times piece on how, every Tuesday, Barack Obama shuffles “baseball cards” with the pictures and bios of suspected terrorists from around the world and chooses who shall die by drone strike. He even reserves for himself the decision of whether to proceed when the probability of killing family members or bystanders is significant.

            The article could have been titled “Barack Obama: Drone Warrior.” Great detail on how Obama personally runs the assassination campaign. On-the-record quotes from the highest officials. This was no leak. This was a White House press release.

    Here’s the scary thing. The Clinton Foundation is dealing with way more money than is needed for all of the Clinton family’s free toys. This isn’t about greed. After he left office, it appears Bill Clinton went and set up his own NGO with the goal of giving him the freedom to take shady money and advance a progressive agenda. Look at the Clinton Foundation home page. It’s all about strategic partnerships, global climate change, childhood obesity and the role of women and girls. They’re not feeding starving Africans. This isn’t just money for influence. This is the Clintons wanting money and enjoying the influence they wield.

    • Lulu says:

      It reads like TCF is just a big GoFundMe to pay for their perks. They don’t actually do anything but raise money to pay for expenses to raise more money. It is a pyramid scheme. This is inappropriate but I find it hilarious. The donors look like a bunch of simpletons and suckers. Including the foreign governments except for the Russians who got what they wanted and probably suckered the Clintons in the end. The Obama-ites must have mixed feeling about exposing it to get rid of Hil. I’m pretty sure TCF was their model for their own scam post-presidency. Now they will just have to pass around trash cans at hedge fund break rooms.

        It’s like how the Dems paint the GOP with a broad brush, and vice versa. A few mis-statements and POW it’s how the whole party feels.

    now this angers me
    pull your kid out of common core and you are racists. How about you want your kid to get a good education and not waste years of their lives learning nothing

    • 49erDweet says:

      Here’s the thing. Common core math’s rollout in CA is working. Third graders in the districts involved are smashing previous end of year test scores. We may need to be smarter in picking our bogeymen.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I wish we’d see more positive information like that on Common Core in the mainstream, I just see more “left v.right” arguments, not great results like that !

        Back in the 70’s, when my sons were starting elementary school, we had Carter pushing teaching the Metric System and something called New Math. I think the parents were upset because they couldn’t figure it out. That’s what Common Core reminds me of. Then again, parents had a bigger voice (PTA) back then.

        • 49erDweet says:

          One reason, of course, is that it’s too new to have seasoned analysis. /grinning/

          • elliesmom says:

            Unfortunately, in education things often come and go before we get a chance to see if they work or not. One of things the charter school movement was supposed to do was give us “learning laboratories” where new educational theories and practices could be tried out before they went mainstream. It hasn’t met that goal, at least not yet.

        • elliesmom says:

          “New Math” was a way of packaging algebra and geometry in a way that it could be taught to younger students and adding Boolean algebra (the way a computer thinks) to the curriculum to prepare kids for what was coming. It never went away. It’s today’s Old Math. Common Core Math acknowledges that a lot of the time we spend teaching kids to do arithmetic calculation in the age of the dollar store calculator could be better spent teaching them to think about how math works. But this time it’s not just the parents who are lost. A lot of teachers are unprepared to teach it.

      • mothy67 says:

        It was the approach more than the substance. You as a parent, as a district have no say.
        Here they instituted without warning. The teachers were unprepared.
        I am also suspect of rising standardized tests. Of course our government would never manipulate data to change public perception.

        • 49erDweet says:

          I agree on the first part. Teacher resistance fuels parental foot dragging. On the second, not so much. YD is involved district wide and she will not “massage” scores for anyone. Period. Nor have they asked her. Right now traditional classes are scoring in the traditional 15 percentile area. CC classes today are in the 85 percentile range. EOY testing is around the corner and they expect numbers to change, but preliminarily the traditional teachers are lining up to be on board next year, so…….

          • mothy67 says:

            Da brat is still getting an A . She is in 3rd and they revamped drastically. Mental math was the obstacle. Lot of frustrated parents not aware that we all utilize it everyday. I took urchin to the store and adjusted the problems to groceries. Less than a half hour before on went the light.
            The question remains is it the place of the federal government to mandate what is taught and how?

          • 49erDweet says:

            My first answer is, “No”, except my own math teacher was a a German male in a Lutheran school and in a combined 3/4G class of 36 he turned out 23 with IQ’s of 130 or over, so however he taught us math somehow stimulated our intellectual skills, IMO. I was never the same afterward. In public HS I drove poor teachers bonkers. Good ones, too.

      • elliesmom says:

        The parents in NY aren’t pulling their kids out of the Common Core curriculum. They’re pulling them out of the testing. There are parents who are opting to homeschool, but that’s a whole different issue. NY uses the test scores to make a lot of decisions, and parents object to promotions, course placement, and graduation being based solely on a test score.

        When you see kids “smashing” a test, before you celebrate it, you need to know if what the test is testing is something to celebrate. I happen to support Common Core math, and if the kids are doing well, that’s great, but if we were testing them on how fast they could add lists of numbers, and they all got perfect scores, I’d think that was a complete waste of time.

        • 49erDweet says:

          Exactly. YD likes what she sees but will wait for EOY standardized testing before doing “the dance”, she says. Her district has tons of other issues that factor in: major bilingual needs, very low parental involvement in some schools/classes, entrenched teacher unions, etc., so caution is wise. Interesting to me is that some of the 3G classes with most of the problems were included in the roll out, and are doing just as well as the rest?????

          • mothy67 says:

            Are the teachers mo re focused due to novelty and pressure? I can understand the frustration of teaching the same thing year after year . Has to become stale. Often a thankless job.

          • 49erDweet says:

            Good questions. Could be. And because of the support and extra training THEY’RE receiving. The biggest downer in this district is a cultural lack of parental involvement. It’s bad. There may be a “gotcha” factor at play here in the worst of those cases.

          • elliesmom says:

            It can get stale. I taught Earth Science one year by starting at the back of the book instead of the front.

      • mothy67 says:

        From my vista it seems that parental influence has no parallel. We can throw a billion dollars at a district but unless the parent places a high priority on education it will not be effective. Seeing a parent read, reading to a child. Basic stuff.
        TV off for homework. Same place same time everyday..
        Maybe they should begin the year with a class for parents and what is expected of them. You can pick up a Common Core math book from Amazon for 15 bucks. That amount might be cost prohibitive to some but I believe that most districts would accommodate a parent showing initiative. Why would you let your child’s education be a passive experience?
        I think the Common Core debate is positive. A unique and important time for a child, but as everyone does it we become numb. Brouhaha has placed a lot of emphasis on it.

        • 49erDweet says:

          Agree, but this district is fighting a non-native born population cultural problem where both parents work long hours to barely survive, and have been taught from birth to never question educated persons. So they are extremely uncomfortable questioning – or interacting with – teachers.

          • mothy67 says:

            So what is the solution? Increase taxes to pay for non-native children to be educated? Commandeer the entire educational system because of unenforced borders? My district has a 10% shortfall. Cuts have to be made. Bye bye French. Other cuts( sports left unscathed.)
            I do believe it is essential to educate all children, but I’d love to compare the budgets. How much is being spent on ESL. Where is that money coming from?

          • 49erDweet says:

            Good questions. Here in some schools all classes are bi-linq, in other schools in the district there are some mixed classes and in a couple of schools, none. Depends on where one lives.
            Btw, THE MOST POPULAR half day pre-school here, one my GD attends, is mandatory two year bi-ling. The toddlers are almost all native English speakers from Hispanic or bi-ling families whose parents want them to also be bi-ling for family or educational/career advantage purposes.
            A large number of Hispanic adults in this area, including my DIL, do not and will not speak Spanish. That’s proving to be a handicap for a few, but not her, as they join the job market, thus the pre-school.

    • elliesmom says:

      The elephant in the room everyone is ignoring is no matter how good the teachers are, how much money you spend, and what curriculum you use, not all students are going to meet “college or career prepared” standards that really do prepare the kids for those goals. Are there inequities in our schools that put bright students at a disadvantage because of their race or zip code? Yes. But when equality is a bigger goal than excellence and excellence for all is an impossible task, then the only way to equality is to lower the bar for everybody. Then magically there are no children left behind. Of course, no one has moved forward either. I don’t know when it became such a taboo to acknowledge we’re not all created equal in the brains department. We’re still very comfortable acknowledging some kids are better athletes or musicians, but we’re racists if we acknowledge some kids are inherently smarter than others. We need to fix the race and zip code problem, but not by bringing everyone else down.

      • mothy67 says:

        What of the parents that make sacrifices to live in a better school district? When searching for a home school’s reputation is paramount. Pay higher taxes for smaller place so your kid gets a decent foundation.
        Also in the zipcodes with lower scores where is the parent?

        • elliesmom says:

          Often working two jobs to feed the kids.

        • 49erDweet says:

          In many ways that’s a crap shoot. What’s logical isn’t always factual. But parents will continue to do extra stuff to give their kids perceived “edges”.

          • mothy67 says:

            I don’t necessarily belive it as an edge that is being sought. Safe school, smaller classes, chance to actually interact with the teachers if need be. Getting the best you can for a child isn’t necessarily seeking an edge. Is saving for college giving an edge?

          • 49erDweet says:

            The “edge” locally usually means to buy/rent a home in an upscale community with a “different” school district. The underlying assumption is it will be a “better” school district. Never mind that it requires a longer commute, has more traffic, suffers more environmental issues, has more expensive shopping and utilities, etc., it is perceived as better for the kids because the schools aren’t connected with the “others”. Problem is, that’s an assumption, not a fact.
