Part 1: The Dark Agenda of Hillary’s Russian Involvement As Secretary of State and Why No Investigation

Why are American technology companies in cahoots with the Russians? What are their future plans? What was Hillary Clinton’s part of the agenda?

Hillary’s Russian Reset in 2009 happened to be more intense than most people are aware. The entire bizarre conspiracy of the Russian/Trump fiasco in American politics may be a smokescreen for Russian ties hidden under the Obama administration. Russian turbulence continues to hang over the Trump administration even after ex-FBI Director Comey testified to Congress that President Trump was not being investigated.

But, here’s the reality: Former President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have the REAL extensive ties to Russia. Together they created an open beltway under the radar for Russia to exchange technology transfer, nuclear energy, neural brain research, and an assortment of extensive research. This was done via a bilateral agreement that would strengthen the Russian economy. The bilateral agreement lasts until the year 2020. This exchange has both countries cooperating in business mergers and acquisitions, multiplying investments in venture nano-technology, education, urban development, and nuclear waste energy. [Link one] and [Link two] Key businesses in the United States have already invested millions of dollars flowing into a new technology corridor, dubbed the “Russian Silicon Valley,” calledSkolKovo. The following is a Who’s Who rocking the Russian borders to invest in Russia’s SkolKovo: CISCO paid $1 billion to be on the ground floor of technology gained by Russian influence. American investors and key universities such as MIT, are capitalizing on this, cooperatively converging vast scientific and technological advances made by Russian scientists.

The hoopla created by Hillary Clinton at the 2016 Presidential debates, and trying to connect Donald Trump to Russia, has obscured the issues. There is actually a complete opposite tale of the real truth that has not been exposed. The piling-on by the media, zealous to connect President Trump to Russia, is a clever ruse to obstruct the facts. The public is not aware of the extent that Hillary Clinton was involved with the Russian Reset, involving millions of dollars and multitudes of businesses and universities, all advancing the United States in partnership with Russia. What did Hillary Clinton get in return? Donors for the Clinton Foundation.

Once you glance through the lists of high tech businesses and higher ed cooperating with Russia, you will have to ask yourself the obvious questions. Can we really trust Russian motives? What do they want from us? And what do the techies want from Russia? (More on this in Part 2.)

Background

Former President Obama met with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, and signed the U.S.-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission in 2009.

The Russian Reset began with the Presidential Bilateral Commission to improve relationships and cooperation between the governments of Russia and the United States. No longer would Russia be radioactive to American interests. Although President Obama pushed the supposed agenda of Russian interference with the election, it was the former President and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that finagled business deals with Russia prior to that time. Lucrative, under-the-table pay-outs to the Clinton Foundation, and paid speeches for Bill, served as the ultimate incentives. Many start-up companies notably had deep Clinton ties.

The Bilateral Commission would work at identifying areas of cooperation and pursuing joint projects and actions that strengthened strategic stability, international security, economic well-being, and the development of ties between the Russian and American people. Scientific talent would also be siphoned off of Russia and transported to the US.

In March of 2009 Hillary Clinton met her Russian counterpart, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, in Geneva, Switzerland. Secretary of State Clinton presented Lavrov a yellow box with a red button to symbolize a “reset button.” Two years later in March of 2011 Vice President Biden met with Putin in Moscow, in an act which reaffirmed the US-Russia ‘Reset’.

The first major part of this technological cooperation included Russian plans to create their own version of Silicon Valley. Their research facility on the outskirts of Moscow, named “Skolkovo,” would be developed with the cooperation and investment of major U.S. tech firms. In May of 2010 the State Department facilitated a Moscow visit by 22 of the biggest names in the U.S. venture capital market. Cisco pledged $1 billion to Skolkovo, with Google, Intel, and Bill and Melinda Gates entering into agreements. The cooperative would match Russian brainpower with U.S. investment dollars, and provide the entrepreneurial know-how to spark technological breakthroughs in a wide variety of start-ups.

It is interesting to note that Cisco, Google, Intel, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation happened to be major Clinton Foundation supporters, with dozens more companies becoming involved with Skolkovo after the Hillary involvement. It was Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who arranged meetings with the high tech companies. Emails, of course, were deleted on Secretary Clinton’s computer, so the exact communications between Russian operatives and donors are supposedly missing. This missing information appears to be indicative of a massive cover-up to conceal the violation of the Espionage Act by using an unauthorized server.

The key to the Bilateral Agreement is:

“…technology transfer and investment, and the Commission played a key role in everything from intellectual property sharing to export licensing to facilitating American investment in Russia and Russian investment in America.

“The FBI warned tech companies about Rusnano, a Russian venture capital firm that technology would have dual use between the defense and civil sectors where technology could be used for revolutionary changes in weapons and defense.” (Source:)

“The opening of a Russian Innovation Center (representing Rusnano, Russian Venture Company, and Skolkovo) in the Silicon Valley will act as another bridge connecting American and Russian high tech companies, investors, and scientific research institutions.”

“To get American companies to participate in Skolkovo, the Russian government promised to give American firms special access to research and projects taking place in Russia. Companies participating in Skolkovo would receive special tax status and access to the Russian market. They would also receive special access to research in Russia. For example, one investment firm received “priority access to the database of the Skolkovo Foundation projects and companies, enabling it to select the most promising projects early in their development.” It further allowed companies to “refer their existing portfolio of companies to Skolkovo” for research. There was also the prospect of gaining access to Russian markets, which had been hampered by export licensing issues involving the export of sensitive technologies. The U.S. State Department had major responsibility for the issuing of export licenses and maintained the list of restricted technologies.”

In 2014, the FBI sent letters to a number of firms involved with Skolkovo in what was called “an extraordinary warning issued to technology companies. The FBI’s Boston Office warned U.S. tech companies that Skolkovo could draw them unwittingly into industrial espionage.” (Note: The following report hashes out a vigorous discussion and complete details of the close ties of the Clinton’s to Russia:)

Many believe the Kremlin’s motives for attracting cooperation from hundreds of foreign technology companies aren’t entirely benign. Among those who would benefit from the “huge honey pot” for the Russian technology industry, says Seattle-based cybersecurity expert Jeffrey Carr, would be the security services who monitor every byte of Internet traffic. “If you’re wiring a facility,” he says, “the best time to do it is while it’s being built.” Skolkovo, he says, would provide an information-gathering “coup.” (Source:)

The “danger” information was given to the tech companies by the FBI Boston office. Was that information heeded? It appears not. Hillary’s State Department actively and aggressively encouraged American firms to participate in Skolkovo. The State Department developed numerous and alarming relationships with this Kremlin-controlled entity. Plus, Hillary’s controversial campaign manager John Podesta, who was also Bill Clinton’s Chief of Staff, has woven many paths passing the “honeypot” with Putin’s investment company, Rusnano, which invested $35m in Joule Global Stichting where Podesta was a member of the board which also included Anatoly Chubais, the Chairman of Rusnano, who also joined the Joule board of directors. Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News reported that Rusnano invested $35m to build a research center in Russia. (Source: Source one and Source two It appears the honey is dripping everywhere while deepening economic and technological ties to Russia.

There was no need for Russia to conduct industrial espionage. We were giving them business partners and technology. Many Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) signed by U.S. companies to invest and cooperate in Skolkovo were signed under the auspices of Hillary Clinton’s State Department. (Sources: Source one and Source two)

Is it any wonder that former Secretary of State John Kerry stated, “Buy Rosetta Stone and learn Russian,” at his recent Harvard speech in May of 2017?

Who’s watching? Tech firms including CISCO, IBM, and SAP allow Russian authorities to review product source codes. Are we in a downward spiral?

Please note, the second best way to draw more attention to your work is to comment on the work of others. I know this to be true because if you do, I'll do everything in my power to draw more attention to your articles.
 
PS - There is a lot I can do and would like to do on your behalf.

It's a smoke screen for the DNC's abject failure for sure. But trying to turn it into an attack on Democrats Russian ties is just as bad and missing the main point imo.
You still seem to be promoting Russophobia which may well lead to WW3.

Those who push Russiagate and Russophobia like the Democrats and the warmonger author of this article are pushing us to nuclear war with Russia, and the entire basis of their arguments are racism and bigotry...

Russia sentiment is in no way built on the terms used in your note and your attached article.  Russia is a known exporter of totalitarian rule.   Communism is alive and well in China, Russia, North Korea and many other countries.  It has even come to the US....Your comment  is not reality...it is misinformation at best and propaganda certain.  A Russian agent is obviously one who has been washed of any reality regarding the actions of Putin and others..
Paul Robbins Added Jul 9, 2017 - 6:40am
The point is this.....Hillary, Obama, and many others have committed a massive number of felonies which is the real story.  Anyone can see that as it is evident in many areas, not just with Russia.  
Jenifer Frost Added Jul 9, 2017 - 6:46am
Anyone who states that the Democratic Russian Federation is still communist is either a ignorant moron or a lying fuck. Simple as that. You just proved by your statement to this effect that you have been living in a cave the last 25+ years or are a NATO propagandist. Either way you just completely destroyed your credibility. Cheers asshat! 
Jenifer Frost Added Jul 9, 2017 - 6:55am
BTW, want to know why you only have one "like" (which is obvious from yourself)? Because people aren't buying the historical revisionist lies and racist NATO propaganda you are selling. Welcome to obscurity and meaninglessness. But you have a brilliant future if you ever decide to take your act to the Democratic Party and join up as their useful idiot bitch.

And hence those many thousands of missing e-mails from that private server.  It is worth noting that the entire democrat/media narrative of Russian hacking and malfeasance goes all the way back to the summer of last year even before the party conventions. As soon as the breach of the DNC server became public the democrat mouthpieces began uttering the identical talking points pointing to the Russians. This was when they were all sure they had it in the bag for Hillary. Gives cause to wonder: why start promulgating that narrative that far back? There has been ample and verified evidence of collusion between DNC/Hillary operatives and CNN as well as other media outlets. This leaves little mystery as to how and why the media picked up this narrative and started sounding the drumbeat. I believe that the Hillary team and DNC operatives knew they had to start laying smoke because with the DNC servers breached (whoever may have been responsible) they needed to be concerned what else may have been uncovered through hacking. Otherwise why go to the trouble of creating any narrative at all? They could just as easily have ignored it, let it run its course through a few days of the news cycle and then if it did arise again later they could simply discredit as being the creation of internet conspiracy theorists. The only way any of it makes sense is that they had something to hide.

I doubt that Russia hacked into our election and even if they did its fair play given what the US has done to Russia and other countries in the past.
Bill Kamps Added Jul 9, 2017 - 12:58pm
Russia has a GDP smaller than the state of Texas, and half that of Germany.  Its GDP is smaller than Italy's and slightly larger than South Korea.  We should keep this in perspective.  Yes they have nuclear weapons, but they are very weak economically, and they dont have near the military capability our politicians and media imply.
 
We should stop magnifying their importance on the world stage, which only serves their internal propaganda.  Instead of saber rattling, when we confront them we should do so in ways that cost them money, because they dont have a lot of it.
 
Unfortunately our military needs a boogieman so we can continue to  spend more on the military.  The US outspends Russia on defense 10:1, and when combined with our European Allies it is about 14:1, yet we are told this is still not enough and we must spend more.  This is nonsense, we should be able to cut spending and still be plenty safe from Russia.

YAWN x 1000. When do you people finally stop using -isms when you don't know what they mean ? Holy fucking shit. These countries are as capitalist as others. Ask them if they are communist. They will say no. We're the same as you. 
 
In Russia the people doesn't elect a president, so don't they in the US. The only difference is that the Western system is more refined and the media is telling the people who to vote for - under whatever pretexts.
Dino Manalis Added Jul 9, 2017 - 1:39pm
The Clintons weren't afraid of Russians, why go hysterical now?  It's a waste of time; money; and brain cells!  There needs to be a balance between warning Moscow and Beijing against aggression and working with them to promote world peace and stability.  Foreign meddling is nothing new, we have to prevent it, because cyber security is national security!
Bill Kamps Added Jul 9, 2017 - 1:43pm
Stone, there are differences.  When Putin was last in an eleciton, we all could have bet the farm that Putin would win.  This past election betting the farm on Hillary would have lost you the farm.  We dont have unfettered choice in who are our politicians, but we have some say in the outcome.
 
Yes all systems are manipulated to a degree, but have no doubt Putin has powers Western Presidents only dream about.
 
You are correct that the isms, matter very little.  The constitutions of the countries are what matters, and where the difference lies.  When we look at places like Turkey, where the President can change the  constitution on a whim, we see the difference with the US, where the constitution is extremely difficult to change.
Stone-Eater Friedli Added Jul 9, 2017 - 1:54pm

But - is the US acting according to the constitution or not ? If not, you might as well flush it down the toilet. And then: That constitution was written 250 years ago. Times are different and not all can still be valid and be acted upon - even if some would like that.
Paul Robbins Added Jul 9, 2017 - 1:59pm
I agree with some comments made....again, the real story is: some Democrats and Republicans, Obama, Clintons, Podesta, Deep State are running a propaganda campaign against a duly elected President, when the real crimes are not being investigated.  It is their intent to oust our President and he is a threat to their crimes committed against the American people, and the general corruption inside and outside the beltway.  We want the truth to prevail.  And we want our President to continue his duties at exposing the corruption and crimes.

Perfect Priestess AND Putinista JenJen sez: if you ever decide to take your act to the Democratic Party and join up as their useful idiot bitch.  - You see, Paul, your tale isn't damning enough for conspiracy theorist JenJen!!  So, therefore you must be a DNC operative.  Apparently Alex Jones won't buy into her theory and give her space on The Sandy Hook School Shooting web page on Infowars, so she needs to pump up her image.  Give her a participation award, and the Millennial will love you...
Bill Kamps Added Jul 9, 2017 - 2:08pm
Stone, well you sit outside the US.  The Constitution largely has affect on domestic issues, not how we behave internationally.  Within the US, the Constitution is largely followed.  The founders were more concerned with the affect of our leaders on us, rather than on others, probably a oversight, or not. I wasnt there.
 
One example is the Trump executive order on travel, which was first denied by a court, then changed, then denied, and then partially upheld by the Supreme Court.  Putin would have just made the executive order, and been done with it, no challenge.
 
The Constitution says nothing about the behavior of the CIA, hired private military contractors, etc. 
 
Im not saying it is perfect.  But the Constitution does stop Trump from being a dictator, and does stop someone like Putin from taking over and making it an autocracy. 
Bill Kamps Added Jul 9, 2017 - 2:17pm
Paul, there are endless real crimes committed by politicians.  They are very good at covering their tracks and avoiding indictments. There have been plenty of posts about all the things the Clintons have done over the years.  In the past, ones like LBJ even got the media to help with the coverup.  This has probably been going on since the colonists landed. 
 
Politics is dirty business.  The DNC got hacked, and we saw HRC was playing  dirty with Bernie.  At this point, Yawn.  Yes the media should drop it already, and  yes the Democrats would like to impeach Trump, just like the GOP wanted to impeach Obama.  No great surprise there.
John G Added Jul 9, 2017 - 3:54pm
To say that there is "no evidence" is clearly untrue.
Whether proof could be established is a different test.
Personally I think there are numerous crimes they could be prosecuted for.

Since the end of the 19th century most of us have been tools in a rich man's world.  For about the first 35 years following WW2 the average man finally got a little piece of the pie.  Neoliberal policies started by RR and carried out since then have been slowly taking away what little we enjoyed for that brief period.

Neoliberal policies started by RR
It was actually Carter that delivered the first neoliberal fiscal statement in the USA.
In the UK it was a Labour Government (prior to Thatcher) that introduced the first neoliberal 'budget' and in Australia it was the Whitlam Labor government that introduced neoliberalism.
Even NZ got its first taste of shock treatment from a Lange Labour government.
It's been a bi-partisan project and the old parties of labour of the west have been cowards and crooks I'm afraid.
