On Tuesday morning, August 1, 2017, the dormant cold case of the violent murder of Seth Rich suddenly came back to life, or to renewed public attention at least, with the filing of a civil complaint, a.k.a. a lawsuit, in a federal court in New York. The plaintiff (accuser) is Rod Wheeler, a Fox News contributor and former Washington, D.C. homicide detective, and the defendants are the Fox News Channel, 21st Century Fox, Malia Zimmerman, a Fox News investigative reporter, and Ed Butowsky.

NPR broke the story in a long article at its Web site at 7:23 PM EDT and in a six-minute report on its Morning Edition program that aired nationally around the same time.

The Fox News Channel and a wealthy supporter of President Trump [Butowsky] worked in concert under the watchful eye of the White House to concoct a story about the death of a young Democratic National Committee aide, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday.

The explosive claim is part of a lawsuit filed against Fox News by Rod Wheeler, a longtime paid commentator for the news network. The suit was obtained exclusively by NPR.

Wheeler alleges Fox News and the Trump supporter intended to deflect public attention from growing concern about the administration’s ties to the Russian government. His suit charges that a Fox News reporter created quotations out of thin air and attributed them to him to propel her story.

This story as it evolved and grew during the day on August 1 is extremely complicated and convoluted. It quickly became a lead story on CNN where it was given an incendiary spin (“Fox News concocted Seth Rich story with oversight from White House”) and was widely and similarly reported in other mainstream media. It looked like it might become a story with legs, another arrow in the quiver of the “Resist Trump” movement. This heightened attention was to be expected as Wheeler’s lawsuit appeared to add weight to skepticism that Seth Rich’s unsolved murder near his apartment in the early morning hours of July 10, 2016 was just a robbery gone bad and not part of a larger conspiracy involving his employer, the Democratic National Committee, at a critical time in the 2016 election campaign.

 Rod Wheeler

On the Hagmann Report, Tuesday August 1, 2017, I appeared as a last-minute guest from 8:45 PM until approximately 9:10 PM ET to discuss these latest developments in the case. The recording of the program is here, and I appear at the 1 hour 45 minute and 50 second point. I said then that I would prepare an article with links to primary sources of information for people interested in the case and the new developments. This is the article and the links will come near the end of it.

At this point, as a summary and basic introduction to the subject of the Seth Rich case, I will quote from an article that I wrote for American Thinker on May 30, 2017. That article was primarily about Fox News but it included reporting and analysis of the Seth Rich case up to that point.

What should be kept in mind now on August 1, 2017 is that these latest developments in the story that broke today should not be seen in a vacuum or in isolation, rather as pieces of a larger puzzle involving efforts to undermine the legitimacy of the Fox News channel and ultimately the viability of the presidency of Donald J. Trump.

From May 30, 2017:

The issue here is of the unsolved murder last summer of Democratic National Committee employee Seth Rich. Rich, 27, was fatally shot in the back by unknown assailants as he was walking home to his apartment in Washington, D.C. in the early morning hours of July 10, 2016. According to an article in the New York Daily News on July 11, 2016, citing information from Seth Rich’s father, D.C. Metropolitan Police were reported to be investigating Rich’s death as a robbery. But technically a robbery did not occur since nothing of value was taken from Rich after he was shot. Curiously, the same article also states “There is no immediate indication that robbery was a motive in the attack, police said, but it has not been ruled out as a possibility.”

An IT professional with a passion for politics, Seth Conrad Rich was the Voter Expansion Data Director at the DNC. According to Fox News’s January 10, 2017 story, “Rich would have had access to sensitive DNC information. His main duty at the DNC was to build an online system to get out the vote.” Reports began to emerge after the shooting of Rich that he might have been the source of 20,000 embarrassing internal DNC documents, showing collusion between the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign, that wound up being published by Wikileaks on the eve of the Democrat National Convention in late July. Recently, these initially unconfirmed reports about some kind of relationship between Seth Rich and Wikileaks have gained new currency and momentum.

On May 15, 2017, Fox News channel 5 in D.C. reported that Rod Wheeler, a former D.C. police homicide detective and a Fox News contributor who was independently investigating Rich’s death on behalf of the young man’s family, went on the record with allegations confirming many of the suspicions about the official investigation of Seth Rich’s murder, including a new claim that the D.C. police were instructed to “stand down on this case.” On May 16, Fox News in New York also reported the story based on Wheeler’s account. An identical version of the May 16 Fox News story republished the same day by the New York Post, which is owned by the same company that owns Fox News, is archived here, but on May 23, in a highly unusual move, Fox News retracted its story one week after publication and removed it from the Fox News Website.

The Fox News retraction, the “backtracking” on elements of the story by Wheeler himself, and the emotionally charged objections by the Rich family to any more outside investigations and reporting about Seth Rich’s death, provided fuel to the fire stoked by the mainstream media, which had already dismissed any and all questions that were being raised about Rich’s murder and its possible links to the purloined DNC documents and Wikileaks as illegitimate, irresponsible, and “conspiracy theories.”

The mainstream media initially downplayed Rich’s death and only began reporting about it again when new questions began to be asked – while dismissing the questioners in hundreds if not thousands of critical stories. A typical example of the latter appeared May 22 in Foreign Policy, the influential organ of the Council on Foreign Relations, with author Max Boot decrying Fox News in particular for being “morally bankrupt” and guilty of “conspiracy mongering” for its reporting in the Rich murder case. Meanwhile, the reporting that has reopened and advanced the story has been done primarily by alternative conservative media, including most recently by Alicia Powe writing at World Net Daily (WND).

 Sean Hannity

Sean Hannity interviewed Rod Wheeler live on his Fox News channel program on May 16, 2017, giving prominence to the new information that Wheeler was bringing forward. One week later on May 23, after Fox News had retracted its story, Hannity, speaking on his nationally syndicated radio show, insisted “I am not Fox.com or Fox News.com. I retracted nothing.” Later that evening on his Fox News program, after having promised that he would present new information relating to the case, Hannity announced instead that he was backing off the story “for now” in deference to the wishes of the Rich family. These developments set the stage for a doubling down of the onslaught targeting Hannity by the mainstream media and left-wing advocacy groups like Media Matters for America, with Hannity’s enemies moving in for the “kill shot,” as he termed it, by employing the tactic of the sponsor boycott. (Ultimately, the advertiser boycott against Hannity did not succeed.)

Meanwhile, investigations into the death of Rich are proceeding, mainly on the part of independent journalists. An exception were two reports broadcast by One America News Network (OAN) on May 19, “Who Killed Seth Rich? Investigating the DNC Staffer’s Suspicious Murder.” Video of the the first of the two OAN reports can be viewed here (Part 1).

At the conclusion of Part 2, OAN reporter Pearson Sharp said:

For now there are no clear answers as to who killed Seth Rich – or why. Police have called it a robbery, but have no proof. There is growing evidence that it was something much more than a mugging gone wrong… It’s not just one coincidence, or two. It’s dozens. And they trace their way all the way to the highest brains of the DNC. Yes, it could be a coincidence that the officers were wearing body cameras but the footage apparently can’t be found. It could be a coincidence that the attending physician has direct ties to [one of] Hillary’s right hand [men]… And it could be a coincidence that Seth’s father said that a security camera from a small convenience store across the street captured video of their son collapsing at the feet of two men and that the police say that now that footage doesn’t exist. But the question we must ask ourselves now is at what point does one coincidence – or 100 – add up to something approaching the truth.

The Larger Picture

 Seth Rich

The case of Seth Rich’s death is not simply a footnote in this larger story about Fox News. If it is true that Rich, acting as a principled whistle blower – rather than some Russian government hack colluding with Donald Trump’s associates – was the source of the initial document dump that wound up impeding Hillary Clinton’s chances in her 2016 presidential election campaign against Donald Trump, then that is big news. A confirmed connection between Seth Rich and Wikileaks would seriously challenge the overwhelming and to date largely successful mainstream/Deep State meme that representatives of the Trump campaign conspired with the Russians to disseminate internal DNC documents with the intention of harming the Democrat opposition. The whole “Trump has colluded with the Russians” party line that has dominated political discourse for months on end could go up in smoke.

The stakes in terms of how this story ultimately plays out couldn’t be higher and the mind boggles at the possible outcomes.

Back to the future now – August 1, 2017 – and Rod Wheeler has done more today than simply backtrack. Here are some popular current or recent valuable news accounts and links to primary sources that should shed some additional light on the case.

By Douglas J. Hagmann

I understand what the family of Seth Rich is feeling better than most, as I too lost a close family member to a homicide that went unsolved for five years. Near the five-year anniversary of my uncle’s murder, my family hired a private investigator; it was me. More accurately, it was my PI firm led by me and my partner. Six months later, an arrest was made. The perpetrator was convicted in a jury trial, and is now spending the remainder of his life in prison.

I lived with the pain of my family. I saw it up close, especially with every news update that we gave. I watched my father hold back tears as we discussed the case in private. I saw and at times, was the recipient of his anger and angst, and from other family members as well, as the private life of my uncle was laid bare by the media. Accordingly, I feel I can write with some authority about the unsolved murder of Seth Rich and the publicity surrounding it.

A decade later and as my father lay dying of cancer, less than a week before his death, I was sitting next to him in the quiet of his home. It was one of those father-son moments for which Hallmark makes no cards. It was sheer reality, in all of its brutality. It was a time when true feelings can no longer be hidden, when every second is more precious than the last. My father was more lucid than I had seen him in a while when he spoke to me about his brother, my uncle, who had been savagely murdered, and my role in solving the case.

“I never really said thank you,” he said just above a whisper.

“For what?” I asked. A tear formed in his eye as he pointed to a picture of my uncle.

“For helping the family. For the work you did. It was a horrible time, but it brought the family closer. Thank you for that,” he said as he drifted back into a morphine-induced sleep.

Resolution of this case is critical not just for the sake of justice, but for the nation

That was one of the last coherent conversations I had with my dad. He died 4 days later.

I feel for the family of Seth Rich. It brings back painful memories. However, the resolution of this case is critical not just for the sake of justice, but for the nation.

Without an honest investigation and arrest, Seth Rich will have no justice, the family no peace, and the nation no answers. I understand the pain. I also understand the stakes.

The following is a cursory investigative summary that explains the significance of the email “scandal” that erupted right before the 2016 election and how the Obama Department of Justice under Loretta Lynch worked in conjunction with the Hillary Clinton campaign to obstruct justice.

It is submitted as a foundation for forthcoming documentation that will detail extensive criminal corruption, the scope of which is breathtaking and a threat to our national security by the Hillary Clinton State Department and the Obama White House.

What follows is a brief glimpse into a murky and crowded swamp of criminality that involves personal enrichment through weapons trafficking and the methods to hide the criminal behavior of those involved. It includes the use of the Department of State, the Department of Justice, the Executive branch, and the Clinton Foundation, along with many co-conspirators in government and the media.

Testifying under oath before Congress in 2013, Hillary Clinton stated that she knew nothing about the weapons shipments from Libya and Qatar to Syria. Thanks to the release of John Podesta emails and other documents by Wikileaks, it is now beyond any reasonable doubt that she lied. Her actions resulted in not only the deaths of four Americans, including a U.S. ambassador in the September 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi, but the deaths of countless innocent people due to the destabilization of the Middle East.

Equally disgusting is that she and others used her position as U.S. Secretary of State, serving from January 21, 2009 through February 1, 2013 for personal enrichment through the Clinton Foundation, and again lied about it despite the revelations by Wikileaks.

Hillary Clinton not only lied under oath about the arms shipments, with a large number of those weapons coming into possession of ISIS as well as anti-Assad terrorists, but also lied to the American people about the attack at Benghazi, her emails, and many other related matters. This particular area of the swamp is not only deep, but crowded as well.

Hillary Clinton & The Clinton Foundation, Arms Merchants

Under Hillary Clinton’s leadership, the U.S. Department of State approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations (from October 2010-September 2012), representing almost twice the amount approved by the State Department under the second term of George W. Bush for the same time period. It seems hardly a coincidence that each government benefactor of those arms sales gave money to the Clinton Foundation.

Under Clinton’s leadership, an additional $151 billion of separate Pentagon-brokered deals to 16 countries was authorized. Again, all 16 countries donated to the Clinton Foundation. Compared to a similar period under Bush, this denotes a 143 percent increase of arms sales to Clinton Foundation donors.

It is important to note that federal law prohibits foreign governments seeking clearance through the U.S. State Department to buy U.S. arms from making campaign contributions. This prohibition was designed to prevent foreign interests and governments from using cash to influence national security policy.

Nothing, however, prevents such foreign interests from contributing to a philanthropic foundation. Enter the Clinton Foundation.

The Clinton emails (those deleted and archived outside of investigative purview), the Podesta emails released by Wikileaks, and other relevant documents provide prima facie evidence of personal enrichment by Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and others through arms sales to prohibited countries—including and especially ISIS. They also provide documentation of evidence tampering and obstruction of justice, and provide insight into the individuals and groups involved.

The emails are alleged to include other criminal activities as well, although these activities will be addressed separately for both clarity and brevity.

Many within the U.S. government as well as the media have misrepresented the importance of the emails, from those on Clinton’s private server to those found on the laptop of Anthony Weiner/Huma Abedin.  Understanding the mishandling of the Weiner/Abedin emails by the U.S. Department of Justice, the FBI and others will provide insight into how the investigation was hijacked and diverted from within.

Rigging the criminal investigation


The criminal hubris of the Obama regime and the Clinton criminal cabal is unparalleled in American history. 

The Hillary Clinton emails, the Anthony Weiner emails, the infamous Comey letters, the Department of Justice obstruction of justice by Loretta Lynch, Huma Abedin, and many others, along with the media manipulation are all incestuously related in this vast criminal enterprise.

A large alligator in the murky swamp of criminal corruption is John Podesta. Wikileaks began releasing the emails of John Podesta on October 7, 2016 and continues to date, bringing the total upwards of 70,000 emails and related email chains.

Podesta is a long-term associate of the Clintons and was President Bill Clinton’s Chief of Staff from 1998 until 2001, and served as counsel to Barack Obama. He and his brother Tony own the Podesta Group (a large DC lobbying firm). He is also the chairman of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a Washington DC-based think tank, and perhaps most importantly, served as Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign chairman.

When the news broke that some 650,000 emails were found on the laptop of disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner, husband of Hillary Clinton’s closest aide Huma Abedin, Loretta Lynch immediately began to mitigate any potential damage by assigning Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik to lead the investigation into those emails. 

Her choice could not be a more blatant conflict of interest. Peter Kadzik has been a good friend of John Podesta since their days at Georgetown Law School. In fact, many emails between Podesta and Kadzik were among those released by Wikileaks, and were also alleged to be on the Weiner/Abedin laptop. In one of the Wikileaks emails, it was John Podesta who described Kadzik as a “fantastic lawyer who kept me out of jail.” Kadzik’s son also emailed John Podesta, asking for a job on the Clinton campaign.

Peter Kadzik also represented Podesta during the Monica Lewinsky investigation. Perhaps most telling of all is the role Peter Kadzik played in the controversial Clinton pardon of fugitive Marc Rich, who is best known for founding the commodities company Glencore, being indicted in the U.S. on federal charges of tax evasion and illegally making oil deals with Iran during the Iran hostage crisis.

Interestingly, it was Rudy Giuliani who built the case against Rich. Another familiar name, James Comey, the current FBI Director eventually took over the pardon investigation. Rich ultimately received a pardon from President Bill Clinton on January 20, 2001, his last day in office.

The pardon did not come without a price, however. Denise Rich, the wife of Marc Rich, gave more than $1 million to the Democratic Party, including more than $100,000 to Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign.

In short, Loretta Lynch appointed a suspect of the email investigation to take the lead for the Department of Justice in that very investigation. This alone should clearly reveal that the motives of the Justice Department, presumably acting at the direction of the Obama White House, were never to conduct an honest investigation, but to stop any honest investigation from the start.

Considering that Kadzik was both a suspect and the lead investigator of the latest email “scandal,” and given the fact that Kadzik represented both Podesta and Marc Rich, the motivation behind the peculiarly timed release of the Marc Rich records to the FBI online archive might be better understood.

As briefly explained here, the vast Clinton criminal cabal is well entrenched and extends far back into the Clinton White House and Hillary Clinton’s tenure as a U.S. Senator.  It expanded through the Clinton Foundation and during her tenure as Secretary of State. It involves the heads of state of other countries, as well as leaders within our own.

Understanding this will provide the necessary context to understand the importance of everything from the Clinton emails, the Arab Spring, the attacks in Benghazi, and the obstruction of justice as evidence of criminality, and why it is unlikely that Clinton and her close associates will go away quietly.

A war is being waged between those attempting to expose the criminality of the globalists, and those attempting to not just engage in a massive cover-up, but maintain power. The battle is raging. It is a very dangerous time in America.

By Douglas J. Hagmann

Julian Assange, the man behind Wikileaks and a threat to the criminal cabal of globalists working inside of the U.S. government, is the subject of multiple investigations, including two most recent, extremely serious and very curiously timed charges. In fact, it is suggested that these charges served, at least in part, as the basis for Assange recently losing his internet access.

press release dated 18 October 2016 from Wikileaks details the charges, summarized as follows: “An unknown entity posing as an internet dating agency prepared an elaborate plot to falsely claim that Julian Assange received US$1 million from the Russian government and a second plot to frame him sexually molesting an eight-year-old girl.” Both are heavy duty accusations, to be sure.

In society and especially within prison systems (well, except for some Middle Eastern countries), pedophiles do not fare well. Mere accusations are often sufficient to make one a very poor life insurance risk. Accusations of espionage, including and especially to such levels of enrichment, can also be a death sentence.

Why not just drone the guy, one might ask? Well, that could work, too, however, the mere stigma from accusations of espionage and pedophilia might well be considered the “daily double” of professional extermination, without the property destruction and bloodshed. Such charges are far more convenient and effective than a drone strike, as no tears are shed for such societal dregs. As an added benefit, there’s a whole lot less explaining that needs to be done.

It is important to note here that the American public has been inundated with accusations that the nation-state of Russia is behind the Podesta and DNC hacks. Recall that Hillary Clinton asserts that all of our intelligence agencies are pointing to Russia as the culprit behind the digital break-ins, involving Assange by association with the Russian operation. How utterly convenient, then, to see charges levied against Assange that he is the intended recipient of one million dollars. For the mindless spectators listening to the media pundits, case closed.

For the independent thinkers among us, not so fast…

Julian Assange in the crosshairs – smear, assassination efforts

Neutralizing Assange – From the Pages of the Benghazi Cover-up Playbook


While scrutinizing the accusations against Assange, I sensed something very familiar about the origins of the claims against him. In fact, it was reminiscent of the attacks in Benghazi (which I’ve investigated and written about extensively), where the blame was attributed to an obscure internet video produced and uploaded to the internet by an equally obscure individual.

Stated differently, I’ve seen this same template, or identical method of operation before. In that instance, the origin of the video appeared to have been birthed by factions within the U.S. government itself, and by individuals working with or peripherally, at that time, to the Central Intelligence Agency and related organizations. Now this, possessing many of the same characteristics related to Benghazi. It appears to have been copied from the same “playbook.”

In the case of Benghazi, Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State and had a working relationship with the CIA and former and current national security advisors. They wrote the playbook and used it to mitigate the public relations disaster that would accompany allegations of weapons smuggling through the CIA compound in Benghazi. With regard to the Benghazi attack, I was clear that all was not what it appeared.

Now with regard to the charges against Assange, my investigation revealed that all is not what it appears. It is, in fact worse. If proven correct, the charges are not only spurious, but can be traced to political operatives inside the inner circle of Hillary Clinton campaign and equally important, intelligence operatives within that same circle. Simply put, Hillary Clinton, along with her inner circle of political and intelligence operatives appear to be present at the epicenter of both the Benghazi cover-up and the Assange accusations.

I do not write this lightly and understand the implications by publishing my analysis. I am therefore relieved upon finding the research of citizen journalists posting to Reddit, who appear to be arriving at similar conclusions. It was during my broadcast last evening when a listener sent me the link to the same Reddit thread I found earlier, giving me a bit of comfort knowing that others are beginning to take notice.

I must fully credit the posters at Reddit, some who would make great investigators based on their thoroughness and persistence. The cyber unit at the FBI would do well to pay attention, for there are some very talented cyber-sleuths who I would gladly welcome into my organization given their abilities and tenacity. Most of the so-called journalists of today could not find their way home with a map and a GPS, but I digress.

Fingerprints of Fabrication

A fully documented investigative report would span many pages and contain numerous end notes serving as exhibits logged into evidence. For the sake of space and time, I’ll provide a simple overview of the general analysis based on my extensive research and investigation.

Central to the charges against Assange is a company identified as ToddandClare (toddandclare.com), an online dating site that reportedly offered Julian Assange, through his attorney of record, a million dollars for his participation in a video ad for their company. The money, it was alleged, would come from the Russian government and was initially made on or about 15 September 2016.

The Assange legal team obtains information about this entity, responding that it appeared to be an elaborate ruse to entrap Assange. Follow-up emails ostensibly from that same entity pose an October 31, 2016 “deadline” regarding their original offer, although contain certain characteristics of those emails suggest something more nefarious is taking place. It is critical to note that the odd timing of this “offer” corresponds with Wikileaks obtaining the yet unreleased Podesta emails.

On October 4, 2016 – the same day of Assange’s press conference where he was expected to disclose serious revelations involving the Clinton campaign, that same entity, ToddandClare, a participant in the United Nations Global Compact program known as KATIA, a screening project to protect women from online predators, apparently filed a report against Assange for the alleged online sexual molestation of an eight-year-old girl. Again, it is critical to understand the timing of the actions referenced.

Three days later, Wikileaks begins the incremental release of the Podesta emails.

As the news of the serious allegations made against Assange were made public, citizen journalists and amateur investigators posting to Reddit began their efforts to uncover who is behind the entity known as ToddAndClare. The findings posted on Reddit generally corresponded with my investigation being conducted in-house, with a few minor and inconsequential differences.

What was discovered and published on Reddit, and found through my use of proprietary databases that restrict access to approved investigative agencies, is a relationship between ToddAndClare and certain staff members of a database aggregator, trends analyzer and global think tank identified as the Premise Data Corporation.

The Premise Data Corporation is a highly praised and well-connected company whose co-founder is identified as David Soloff. Mr. Soloff happens to be a friend of Hillary Clinton, and is seen in pictures on social networking sites posing with Hillary Clinton.

In addition, Larry Summers is listed as being on the board of directors at the Premise Data Corporation. Summers is also associated with the Center for American Progress, which was founded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta.

So there you have it, exposed are the latent digital fingerprints of fabrication and connected to the Clinton Cabal, not Russia. There is more, but this should be sufficient to see that things are not what they appear.

It was during my broadcast last evening when a listener sent me the link to the same Reddit thread I found earlier, giving me a bit of comfort knowing that others are beginning to take notice.

I must fully credit the posters at Reddit, some who would make great investigators based on their thoroughness and persistence. The cyber unit at the FBI would do well to pay attention, for there are some very talented cyber-sleuths who I would gladly welcome into my organization given their abilities and tenacity. Most of the so-called journalists of today could not find their way home with a map and a GPS, but I digress.

Fingerprints of Fabrication

A fully documented investigative report would span many pages and contain numerous end notes serving as exhibits logged into evidence. For the sake of space and time, I’ll provide a simple overview of the general analysis based on my extensive research and investigation.

Central to the charges against Assange is a company identified as ToddandClare (toddandclare.com), an online dating site that reportedly offered Julian Assange, through his attorney of record, a million dollars for his participation in a video ad for their company. The money, it was alleged, would come from the Russian government and was initially made on or about 15 September 2016.

The Assange legal team obtains information about this entity, responding that it appeared to be an elaborate ruse to entrap Assange. Follow-up emails ostensibly from that same entity pose an October 31, 2016 “deadline” regarding their original offer, although contain certain characteristics of those emails suggest something more nefarious is taking place. It is critical to note that the odd timing of this “offer” corresponds with Wikileaks obtaining the yet unreleased Podesta emails.

On October 4, 2016 – the same day of Assange’s press conference where he was expected to disclose serious revelations involving the Clinton campaign, that same entity, ToddandClare, a participant in the United Nations Global Compact program known as KATIA,a screening project to protect women from online predators, apparently filed a report against Assange for the alleged online sexual molestation of an eight-year-old girl. Again, it is critical to understand the timing of the actions referenced.

Three days later, Wikileaks begins the incremental release of the Podesta emails.

As the news of the serious allegations made against Assange were made public, citizen journalists and amateur investigators posting to Reddit began their efforts to uncover who is behind the entity known as ToddAndClare. The findings posted on Reddit generally corresponded with my investigation being conducted in-house, with a few minor and inconsequential differences.

What was discovered and published on Reddit, and found through my use of proprietary databases that restrict access to approved investigative agencies, is a relationship between ToddAndClare and certain staff members of a database aggregator, trends analyzer and global think tank identified as the Premise Data Corporation.

The Premise Data Corporation is a highly praised and well-connected company whose co-founder is identified as David Soloff. Mr. Soloff happens to be a friend of Hillary Clinton, and is seen in pictures on social networking sites posing with Hillary Clinton.

In addition, Larry Summers is listed as being on the board of directors at the Premise Data Corporation. Summers is also associated with the Center for American Progress, which was founded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta.

So there you have it, exposed are the latent digital fingerprints of fabrication and connected to the Clinton Cabal, not Russia. There is more, but this should be sufficient to see that things are not what they appear.

“To the ordinary guy, all this is a bunch of gobbledygook. But out of the gobbledygook comes a very clear thing…. You can’t trust the government; you can’t believe what they say; and you can’t rely on their judgment…” H.R. Haldeman to Nixon, Monday, 14 June 1971, 3:09 p.m.

A brief review of history effectively exposes both the rampant hypocrisy of the Clinton cabal and their supporters, and reveals the complicity of the corporate media in a web of lies, cover-ups, and obfuscation to support the political left at all costs. At the epicenter is the Clinton power machine, the Clinton Foundation, the Obama-Clinton foreign policy of destruction and global power restructuring, the largest transfer of wealth and largesse, and the death grip by the Clinton machine to hold power through the upcoming election. One of the biggest threats, of course, is WikiLeaks.

The WikiLeaks disclosures present an increasingly uncomfortable situation for the political left, especially for the Clintons and their supporters. They also serve as a reminder why the corporate media is irrelevant, and illustrate just how journalists of today have been castrated and coopted by the criminal cabal of globalists. The media now serve as their primary propaganda arm to cover the criminality of those in power instead of uncovering it.

Blatant lies of multiple administrations to the American people about the Vietnam war

Compare the WikiLeaks situation to the publication of the Pentagon Papers in 1971.

Briefly and for those unfamiliar, the “Pentagon Papers” is a somewhat romanticized term for a 7,000-page, 47-volume top-secret report titled United States-Vietnam Relations, 1945–1967: A Study Prepared by the Department of Defense. The report exposed the blatant lies of multiple administrations to the American people about the Vietnam war and ultimately became an embarrassment to the Nixon administration.

The man behind the Pentagon Papers was Daniel Ellsberg. He was a military analyst employed by the RAND Corporation when, in late 1969, he secretly made copies of many government documents from that report that exposed the lies about the U.S. role and engagement in Vietnam, contrary to what was being told to the American public. These documents, which later came to be known as the Pentagon Papers, were celebrated by the political left as they laid bare the lies coming from the Oval Office and other key elected officials.

Ellsberg leaked the documents to the New York Times, which began publishing the more explosive excerpts as front-page news on June 12, 1971. Of course this embarrassed and incensed Nixon and his cabal of globalists, including globalist Henry Kissinger and then Attorney General John Mitchell, the latter who quickly sought and obtained a federal court injunction to prevent further publication.

Compare the Pentagon Papers of 1971 to WikiLeaks of today

The New York Times fought back, and was joined by the Washington Post which also began its own coverage. After a flurry of court maneuvers, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on June 30, 1971 that the government could not stop the releases, and the press coverage resumed.

Some things never change. When the leaks became legally unstoppable, the Nixon cabal unleashed their foot soldiers to publicly discredit Ellsberg, in one instance burglarizing his psychiatrist’s office, the office of Lewis Fielding, to obtain documentation that Ellsberg was a mentally unstable,  crazy conspiracy theorist. The break in was orchestrated through members of the CIA and was titled “Hunt/Liddy Special Project No. 1.” It failed, however, to produce any such documentation.

Compare the Pentagon Papers of 1971 to WikiLeaks of today. Documents, the former in hardcopy and the latter digital, were illicitly obtained but served the purpose of exposing government lies and corruption.

It is interesting that the operational handbook is nearly identical to what we are witnessing today. The criminal element within the government lies to the people they are supposed to serve, engage in arguably criminal behavior, and when caught, set out to stop the exposure in any way necessary.

The operational similarities between the rogue, criminal element within the Nixon administration to the current Washington regime are remarkable. The differences are equally remarkable, for the media who was fighting to expose the damning information, regardless of intent, have now become servants to the tyrannical globalist powers. As the narrative has been revised, thanks to a compliant media, the criminal cabal has gained followers in the form of a public who, in equal measure, appear to be apathetic or deluded. It is this group who can be seen dutifully nodding their heads and clapping at the deflections, rather than succinct answers to legitimate questions, that Hillary Clinton and her staff offer the swooning public.

The criminality of the DC denizens and globalists of all stripes has been emboldened by the complicity of the media

What remains constant, however, is that lies are still lies and truth is still truth. The criminality of the DC denizens and globalists of all stripes has been emboldened by the complicity of the media.

Hillary Clinton and her cabal of criminal cronies have copied the playbook of the same people they claim to have once detested. Assange is the present-day Ellsberg, without the media assistance. He must be stopped, and the disclosures buried. Those who propagate the information within the documents must be marginalized or silenced, in any way necessary. Notice that such steps have already been taken, and some effectively.

They are counting on Americans to consider the WikiLeaks as muddled “gobbledygook,” purloined by mentally unstable “deplorables” with a penchant for conspiracy theories. Moreover, the disclosures reveal their plans and blatant collusion with the “journalists” of today.

The importance of the information contained in these leaked documents cannot be understated. They lay bare the nuts and bolts of an out-of-control globalist regime that has captured the branches of our government, and identify the co-conspirators in the takeover of our nation from within.

Unlike the Pentagon Papers, the critical information from these documents won’t be researched and made public by the corporate media, only downplayed and their legitimacy questioned. Censorship of the truth is in full swing, and the new, alternative media has become the new target of the modern-day plumbers.

Behind Hillary Rodham Clinton’s smirk is a rabid determination to retain their grip on power, influence, and wealth.

It is critically important for the reader to understand just how dangerous this situation has become. Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, and their stable of globalists are using asymmetrical methods to silence the truth-seekers and truth-tellers. They have weaponized various arms of the federal government, from regulatory to enforcement agencies, to silence the truth-tellers. 

Hidden behind Hillary Rodham Clinton’s smirk is a rabid determination to retain their grip on power, influence, and wealth. Today, they have increased their allies and foot soldiers, from the corporate media to nearly every branch of government. Those searching the truth are the targets. The prize, in the balance, is the fate of our nation.

It’s time. “Saddle for Battle.”

A recently published email by Wikileaks identifies 28 members of the media who were invited to an “off-the-record” dinner party at the home of Clinton campaign manager John Podesta three days before Hillary Rodham Clinton announced her 2016 campaign run.

Clinton announced her candidacy on April 12, 2015. On Thursday, April 9, 2015, a 7:00 PM dinner party was held at 3743 Brandywine St NW in Washington, DC, the home of Clinton campaign manager John Podesta.

Members of the “media bus,” or the journalists who would be tapped to cover the campaign were invited for dinner and ostensibly, a strategy session that would assist the Clinton candidacy. According to the email dated April 7, 2015, they included:

Clinton’s Media Bus

Liz Kreutz (ABC), Julie Pace (AP), Ken Thomas (AP), Lisa Lerer (AP), April Ryan (AURN) Jennifer Epstein (Bloomberg), Ruby Cramer (Buzzfeed), Steve Chagaris (CBS), John Harwood (CNBC), Dan Merica (CNN), Amanda Terkel (Huffington Post), Mike Memoli (The Los Angeles Times), Anita Kumar (McClatchy), Alex Seitz-Wald (MSNBC), Emily Schultheis (National Journal), Mark Murray (NBC), Tamara Keith (NPR), Amy Chozik and Maggie Haberman (The New York Times), Annie Karni and Gabe Debenedetti (Politico), Amanda Becker (Reuters), Amie Parnes (The Hill), Anne Gearan (The Washington Post), and Laura Meckler, Peter Nicholas, and Colleen McCain Nelson (The Wall Street Journal).

Select reporters were invited to an “off-the-record” party the following night at the home of democratic pollster Joel Benenson. The same email thread invited a “broader universe of New York reporters” for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at 6:30 PM Friday, April 10, 2015 at Benenson’s home at 60 E. 96th Street, #12B, New York, 10128. The exact list of potential attendees is still being sought within the matrix of emails.

Clinton cabal

Coordinating the events on behalf of the Clinton cabal include Amanda Renteria, Huma Abedin, Marlon Marshall, Robby Mook, Nick Merrill; Jennifer Palmieri, Brian Fallon, Kristina Schake, Mandy Grunwald, Jim Margolis, Joel Benenson, Marissa Astor, and of course, John Podesta.

It would appear that the Clinton campaign has co-opted members of the corporate media, and the so-called journalists who have fed at the trough of the globalists’ table have shamelessly traded whatever might have remained of their objectivity to serve as agents of the Clinton campaign.

This news is not new. It should not even be surprising, yet there are many people who either don’t believe the assertions that the collective mainstream media is an agent of the Clintons, or have not seen evidence of the same.

Well, there it is. Oh, and there will be many more revelations to follow.
