WikiLeaks Revelations from Hillary's Highly-Paid Wall Street Speeches

WikiLeaks Revelations from Hillary’s Highly-Paid Wall Street Speeches

by Stephen Lendman

Hillary’s persona in public and private are polar opposites. Comments in highly-paid speeches reveal the true mettle a deplorable aspirant for any public office.

Publicly with cameras rolling, she’s for middle class values, helping America’s poor and lots more lofty pledges. In speeches to Wall Street firms, paying her six-figure remuneration fees as high as half a million dollars or more at times, she admits support for monied interests, explaining she’s “far removed” from middle class struggles she knows little or nothing about, or cares - showing as president she’ll serve wealth, power and privileged interests exclusively, the needs of ordinary people be damned.

Clinton campaign research director Tony Carrk’s concern about likely negative impact of her private comments revealed public got him to email campaign chairman John Podesta the following potential damaging headlines last January:

“CLINTON ADMITS SHE IS OUT OF TOUCH” 

“CLINTON SAYS YOU NEED TO HAVE A PRIVATE AND PUBLIC POSITION ON POLICY” 

“CLINTON ADMITS NEEDING WALL STREET FUNDING”

“CLINTON REMARKS ARE PRO KEYSTONE AND PRO (free, anti-fair) TRADE (meaning pro-TPP and TTIP, among other anti-consumer, anti-freedom, anti-ecosanity trade deals), along with other revelations exposing her real agenda.

Publicly she criticizes Wall Street. Privately she pledges full support. Publicly she bashes regimes like Saudi Arabia. Privately she’s for all rogue states allied with Washington’s imperial agenda.

Publicly and privately she’s militantly anti-Russia, anti-China, anti-Iran, anti-world peace and stability, assuring escalated conflicts if anointed Obama’s successor.

“My dream is a hemispheric common market, with (regulatory-free) open trade and open borders,” she explains - corporate predators free to exploit nations, markets and ordinary people for their own self-interest.

Clinton represents powerful anti-democratic interests exclusively, while pretending concern for middle class values and ordinary people she doesn’t give a damn about.

Her deplorable rap includes nothing redeeming. America under her leadership, if anointed president by fair or foul means, assures greater war on humanity at home and abroad than already - maybe explosive enough to threaten everyone worldwide.
