Trump’s Executive Order and Australia’s Massive Donations to the Clinton Foundation

by Phil Hingston

By now, just about everyone in the world (except those living under a rock) is aware of Donald Trump’s Executive Order from the 21st December, 2017, targeting human rights abuse (read child sex trafficking) and corruption. Corruption in all its forms being financial, criminal, moral, political, religious, sexual…. we all know what corruption is. We just didn’t know how to stop it.

 “Executive Order Blocking the Property of Persons Involved in Serious Human Rights Abuse or Corruption.”

Having watched the scandals being uncovered over the last year, from the Hollywood sex scandals, to the shenanigans over ex-FBI head Robert Mueller desperately attempting to find any dirt on the Trump administration in relation to Russian collusion, to the Main Stream Media being repeatedly caught out fabricating FAKE NEWS (and being vilified by Trump via his Twitter weapon), the goings on in the USA have left one’s head spinning. It has been nothing less that apocalyptic, as well as cathartic!!

Of particular note is the specific wording  in Trump’s executive order relating  to subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) and C.

(ii) any foreign person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General:

(A) to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have directly or indirectly engaged in, serious human rights abuse;

(B) to be a current or former government official, or a person acting for or on behalf of such an official, who is responsible for or complicit in, or has directly or indirectly engaged in:

(1) corruption, including the misappropriation of state assets, the expropriation of private assets for personal gain, corruption related to government contracts or the extraction of natural resources, or bribery; or

(2) the transfer or the facilitation of the transfer of the proceeds of corruption;

(C) to be or have been a leader or official of:

(1) an entity, including any government entity, that has engaged in, or whose members have engaged in, any of the activities described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section relating to the leader’s or official’s tenure;

Well that just about includes all living current and past Prime Ministers, and a vast majority of Federal Ministers, as most, if not all of our politicians are “foreign persons” to the the Americans. And between Rudd and Gillard, Turnbull, Bishop and Carr, various estimates ranging from $100 million to $500 million AUSTRALIAN TAXPAYER DOLLARS were “donated” (misappropriated state assets) to the now-discredited and deregistered Clinton Foundation or the Clinton Global Initiative.

I guess money is no object when it comes to using other people’s money (ours) to buy power, influence, favours and to line your own pocket. Paid your taxes???

Tony Thomas from Quadrant Online has written a superb overview of the depth of this mind-numbing corruption, entitled “The Clintons and Their Corruptocrats”.

Corruptocrats

How many “Corruptocrats” can you think of?

As to “current and former government officials”, I recall certain Swamp Creatures pushing for and attempting to justify Australia’s multi-billion Lockheed Martin boondoggle involving the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter purchase. Is it possible that some of our esteemed current and former bureaucrats may find themselves squarely in the cross-hairs of  “The Donald??”  Remember this from May 2017??

More Australian Swamp Critters and the Flying Turd.

And let’s not forget the $50 billion being spent on submarines, being built and supplied by the French company DCNS.

You remember them? The French company eliciting headlines in the Sydney Morning Herald such as this:

“Contract-winning French sub builder DCNS tied up in deadly Malaysian bribery saga”

Or this: “French subs firm in bribery scandal” from May 2016 in The Australian. And who was the Defense Minister at the time.

David Johnston.

And who was his Chief of Staff?  Sean Costello.

And who ended up as the CEO of DNCS Australia (the French company)? Sean Costello.

What an amazing coincidence!

Nice suit, Sean! (Photo – The Advertiser)

Back to Trump’s Executive Order.

In summary, it looks like Trump is attempting to freeze the assets of just about person or any entity who or which has been involved in serious human rights abuse or corruption. As it relates to the Australian Swamp, it looks to be just about anyone who has held a senior political or bureaucratic position in recent history and who has been “playing in the trough” may regret their previous activities.

To make it simple, I’ve paraphrased the best bits of the E.O.:

“any foreign person …responsible for or complicit in… serious human rights abuse… corruption, including the misappropriation of state assets… corruption related to government contracts or the extraction of natural resources, or bribery… to be or have been a leader or official of any entity… where the activity is conducted by a foreign person… or any activity described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section that is conducted by a foreign person…”

And just to put the icing on the cake, there’s a bit about CONTRIBUTIONS  to charities and foundations.

Sec. 4. The prohibitions in section 1 include:

(a) the making of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; and

(b) the receipt of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services from any such person.

Think Rudd, Gillard, Bishop, Turnbull, et al and their “donations”(bribes) of hundreds of millions of YOUR TAX DOLLARS to the Clintons.

Hey Swamp, are we getting just a teensy, weensy bit nervous yet??  Hope so!!

And then there’s the pedophiles or as Trump calls them, “human rights abusers”!

  1. Phil, I can’t understand what this EO is about, unless it is meant as “noise.” Both Oz and US have a Court of Equity that can rule pretty creatively to make a person “disgorge ill-gotten goods.” But I absolutely never come across cases of it. That law is hibernating for now.

    The most famous precedent for grabbing an ex-dictator’s wealth is Ferdinand (and Imelda) Marcos. Most of that grabbing action involved – naturally – the courts of the Philippines. I went to law.justia.com and found this:

    “Almost immediately after President Marcos departed from his country, the Republic of the Philippines organized the Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG) for the purpose of identifying, locating and retrieving national assets stolen by Marcos and his administration.

    “The PCGG relied on a 1955 Philippine law, which declared that any property derived from misfeasance in public office was deemed forfeited to the Republic when the misappropriation occurred [Very clever].

    “In addition to the efforts undertaken by the PCGG, Marcos was sued in a U.S. federal court in Hawaii by approximately 10,000 Philippine victims of his human rights abuses or their survivors, a group that is collectively known as the “Pimentel class”. After Marcos died, the class obtained a judgment against his estate for almost $2 billion.”

    Our abused persons may imitate this by organizing a “Citizens’ Commission on Good Government.”

    • Mary, for what it is worth.
      Back then a very senior colleague was briefed/commissioned to track down all Marcos’ assets in Australia.
      Do not know the result, but I think he visited a horse stud, at least.

  2. A minor correction, if I may?
    “By now almost everyone in the world…….”
    Yes indeed, ‘under rock dwellers’ certainly have no clue. But that species also relies on the ABC, shock jokes and msm and many crawl the big end of town and professions or are in tears over the 4th test.
    Basically, they are not interested. I pointed the EO out to a few, including a junior colleague and he could not be bothered with the official order (or the repercussions)in the article shown to him. for more than 45 seconds.
    Well, I am pleased to understand that there is no reason for any of them to care. Actually, I have no personal relationship with any who should care ………… phew!
    I must have a uninteresting existence.
    But, how does one say it? Loving ‘schadenfreude’….. Oh what a Christmas delight! [I am not usually this way but do not apologise]

    • Correct Ned… Most people are under rock dwellers.
      And as for the co-incidence that Costello gets rewarded with CEOship… that is just a TYPICAL REWARD for those politicians who have moved legislation in the right way.

    • Off-topic. Alabama’s Governor Kay Ivey has just certified that Doug Jones won the election. (There was a 2-week delay after the Dec 12 voting, as Moore requested investigation of vote-count fraud).

      In short, I defo did not win.

  3. All we need now is someone to prefer criminal charges against all those who have sinned. Then throw the keys away after found guilty and assets seized. Whoopie, aren’t the courts now going to be busy with real crime, not petty criminals.

  4. Sounds as though Rudd, Gillard, Bishop and Turnbull will all have their day of reckoning.
    Suspect they are either driven by insatiable greed to line their own pockets (slush funders) and/or have succumbed to bribery to do as they have done to sell out the great nation that once was Australia to the Clintons and their ‘UN’ cronies in their pay to play game of take.
    They all swore an allegiance to the citizens of Australia. In reality they are all just horrid actors who have sold out our sovereignty to Soros and his globalist puppets. Shame on them all.
    Thank God for Trump!

    • I think we only witness the tip of the “take”… This in from Cairns News

      China’s communist government could soon own an Australian airport after paying just $1 for a 100-year lease on the land. The state-owned China Southern Airlines partially owns Merredin Aerodrome, 260 kilometres east of Perth, and has control of the runways, hangars and the control tower. However, this Chinese government company could soon own all of the country airport less than 25 years after it secretly paid the West Australian government $1 for a 100-year lease, The Australian reports.

      Entrepreneur Dick Smith, who is also a former chairman of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority, said this was the first time a foreign power had owned an Australian airport. ‘It is outrageous that an Aussie pilot can’t go to a country airport without getting approval from the Chinese to land there,’ he said. ‘I’ve never heard of this happening anywhere.’

      https://cairnsnews.org/2017/12/29/chinese-government-gets-100-year-lease-on-airport-for-1/

      • So if the Chinese only paid 1$ for the 100 yr lease, how much did they pay the government official who signed off on this. Let’s find his name and out him. No doubt he’ll have a great “reason”

  5. OMG, you throw the alt-right’s rabies-spewing crap about Soros in there AGAIN???? It’s all about the democrats isn’t it? Australia has been ruled by the right wing for some time now, as has our United States (pretty much since 1995 in Congress). Trump is one of the worst presidents we have ever had. Now that he has gotten billionaires’ tax reductions passed so HE can benefit (not the middle class or poor who will have to squeeze blood out of a turnip now to pay for HIS massive profits off us taxpayers), as well as rich corporations who are not hiring, but are sitting on trillions in profits. Wake up from your right winger brainwashing. Trump and ALL republicans and corporatist democrats like Clinton are the swamp. The KOCH brothers are infiltrating all of our colleges, our legal systems, etc. with their libertarism (alt-right right) for utter power. THEY are the ones who should be slammed. But you brainwashed folks still bring up the lie about Soros. Pitiful.

    • He was behind breaking the bank of England. Black Wednesday. I think he made a £1 billion that day selling pounds he didn’t own.

      Asian Financial Crisis of 1997.

      Mid 2000 – hundreds of Advocacy groups influencing elections… One of the worst offenders receiving one of the biggest fines of all was handed out to a group funded by Soros.

      Soros has built his entire fortune by exploiting tax loopholes. Insider trading.

      Someone you want as a dinner guest – to learn how to get into the “rigged” system. As 56 said — all about connections. (And lets’ not forget the Koch’s)

    • Hey Lora,

      No one says “OMG” anymore. R U a bot??

      “But you brainwashed folks still bring up the lie about Soros. Pitiful”

      Are you defending Georgy Schwartz?(Soros) The guy is barely human. One of his fund managers, Howard Rubin, was just arrested for rape and sex trafficking. Seems to run in the family. He sold out his fellow Jews to the Nazis. Maybe he was a Fake Jew- a Khazarian.

      As for Trump being one of the worst US Presidents in history?? What can I say. You either can’t see what’s going on in real time, right in front of your eyes (you can’t fix stupid) OR you don’t want to see it, in which case you might try upping your meds.Get used to it. Trumps on a mission and he’s not going anywhere soon, or until this filthy swamp is cleaned up permanently.

      As for Australia being ruled by “the right” for many years, ever heard of Rudd/Gillard. Not that it matters which team has the lead. There’s only one party with two wings, left and right. Both corrupt as hell.

      Take the red pill. It really has a wonderful effect on ones outlook on life. Pitiful you are.

  6. Beyond tragic what has happened here . Masonic halls in every suburb . Homosexuality pedophellia and porn , at the touch of a child’s fingertips . The Internet age has not helped in any way . Along with automation robotics mass migration and dwindling opportunities for most people
    (unless connected) , the computer age is enhancing our enslavment . Oz is the debt slave capitol of the world . Look around you ,at lunch gatherings ,on buses , anywhere people are in groups no one talks to each other anymore ! Instead of communicating they send messages to one another ,
    or whatever . Post nine eleven , we have become zombified sheeple of global communist sick world order .
    The technology , just like wars for profit , is a perversion of human injustice .

    Try to avoid their deceptions and traps .Go for a walk in the created world , away from the cities , it’s still there and beautiful as it always is .

  7. Who is this TRAITOR who signed over airport ownership to a foreign country? It doesn’t matter which country, nobody has the right to sign over any Australian asset to a foreign country. This person should be identified, along with his companions (there has to be more than one signatory) and they should all rot in jail or face a firing squad, after having all assets confiscated.

    • “…………… have all assets forfeited….”
      Has anyone read Trump’s executive order of 30th December and understood the implications when applying Obama’s NDAA legislation, with the many commentator’s analysis? (do not bother searching the msm!)
      There are alledgedy thousands of sealed indictments alleging horrendous crimes.
      Some REPORTS REFERRING TO 9,000 SUCH INDICTMENTS.
      Further reports refer to arrests and electronic ankle controls.
      Another report refers to expanding gitmo for 800 (?) new inmates (swamp creatures?) with supporting servicemen.
      In all media, msm or alternative there is a lot of bullshit.
      Buggered if I know, I have not had lunch with DT for some time😅
      But if it eventuates, I would not be a happy Oz traitor (politician) who has sabotaged Australia; people may awaken to the msm lies with a possible pending precedent within our strongest (alleged) ally being applied here.
      Have an interesting new year Lora.

      • For the ignorant: from memory, the NDAA ( Obama’s law Lora!) legislation enables government; for people to be locked away indefinitely, no lawyer, no hearing etc

  8. Never to be heard from again. Gotta love the NDAA. Gotta love FEMA camps and Gitmo. Gotta love “enhanced interrogation techniques” (“Enhanced interrogation techniques” or “enhanced interrogation” is a euphemism for the U.S. government’s program of systematic torture of detainees by the Central Intelligence Agency)

    Talk about the ultimate own goals.

  9. truth is nostradamus stated the very laws they create to crush us will also be used to destroy the PTB, life`s a double edged sword.
