Julian Assange’s string of October Surprises have now evolved into November Surprises, with no end in sight.Among his explosive Wikileaks revelations were that Hillary Clinton stated in an email that she believed Saudi Arabia and Qatar to be funding ISIS. That alone is shocking, considering they’re allies of the U.S. for economic reasons. But that’s not all. The Clinton Foundation has received millions in donations from both the Saudis and Qatar — and Bill Clinton even got a $1 million present from the latter nation on his birthday.
Suppose Hillary is wrong, and they’re not really funding ISIS. That’s irrelevant — as she still took tens of millions from nations she believed to be funding ISIS, and her State Department was happy to reward them with billions in arms deals to boot.Now, just days before we hit the polls, Julian Assange has an explosive new claim. As the International Business Times reported: Julian Assange has claimed that Donald Trump “would not be permitted to win” the US presidential elections due to a lack of support from any major “establishment”. In the second excerpt of his exclusive interview with John Pilger, to be broadcast by Russian state media outlet RT, Assange also said that the Clinton Foundation and the Islamic State (Isis) received funding from the same source.
Citing a 2014 email, recently published by WikiLeaks as part of the Podesta dump, Assange said: “All serious analysts know, and even the US government has agreed, that some Saudi figures have been supporting IS and funding IS, but the dodge has always been that it is some ‘rogue’ princes using their oil money to do whatever they like, but actually the government disapproves.
“But that email says that it is the government of Saudi Arabia, and the government of Qatar that have been funding IS,” RT reported.The WikiLeaks founder also dismissed allegations from the Clinton campaign over WikiLeaks’ alleged attempt to interfere with the US elections and Donald Trump allegedly being the whistle-blowing platform’s favoured presidential candidate.
Assange said: “My analysis is that Trump would not be permitted to win. Why do I say that? Because he has had every establishment off his side. Trump does not have one establishment, maybe with the exception of the Evangelicals, if you can call them an establishment. “Banks, intelligence, arms companies, foreign money, etc, are all united behind Hillary Clinton. And the media as well. Media owners, and the journalists themselves.”
Assange continued, noting that “Under Hillary Clinton — and the Clinton emails reveal a significant discussion of it — the biggest-ever arms deal in the world was made with Saudi Arabia: more than $80bn. During her tenure, the total arms exports from the US doubled in dollar value.”You can watch the relevant part of the interview below:
If the governments of Saudi Arabia and Qatar are indeed funding ISIS — while also funding Hillary — this potential president and ISIS are indeed funded by the same money.So why do you think the same people who want ISIS to succeed also want Hilary Clinton to succeed? And what do you think the chances are of a President Hillary Clinton ‘bombing the hell out of ISIS and taking their oil?’
