New Trump Ad Goes Nuclear on Bill Clinton. Depicts Bill Clinton as a Rapist

The newest Trump ad may be foreshadowing what awaits Hillary Clinton.

The new black-and-white Trump video plays audio clips of two women, Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick. Both women, you may recall, have made very solid and credible accusations against Bill Clinton.

The audio is played against a black-and-white backdrop of the White House and an image of Bill Clinton with a cigar in his mouth. The ad then fades into an audio clip of Hillary Clinton cackling, and a new photo displaying the Clintons against a pitch black backdrop with the headline “here we go again?”

Zerohedge explains the new Trump ad, and its implications going forward.

In a video that some accuse of being crass and tasteless while others say will provoke Hillary Clinton to finally respond to a topic that she has so far eagerly avoided, but is most likely just a foreshadowing of many more such attacks to come, Donald Trump on Monday released a clip that uses audio of two women who have accused President Clinton of rape to attack Hillary Clinton.

While Trump has previously sought to use allegations of sexual misconduct against Bill Clinton to attack Hillary Clinton, this is the first time it has been encapsulated in internet media, and seeks to provoke an angry response by his presidential challenger.

A Trump senior adviser warned last week Trump’s attacks would escalate after Trump accused Bill Clinton of rape.

So far Hillary Clinton has declined to respond to the attacks, instead focusing on Trump’s issue-oriented remarks and slamming him as a “loose cannon” on foreign policy, although if the clip generates enough publicity Hillary (and Bill) may have no choice but to open a very unpleasant can of worms.

Willey, who accused Clinton of sexaul assault in 1993, can be heard from a 2007 interview with Sean Hannity saying, “No woman should be subjected to it. It was an assault.”

The audio then shifts to Broaddrick, an Arkansas woman who accussed Clinton of raping her in a hotel room when he was Arkansas’s attorney general.

Federal prosecutors in New York filed their sentencing memo for President Trump’s former-lawyer-turned-rat Michael Cohen on Friday.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not take a position on Cohen’s sentencing even though the charges stemmed from Mueller.

Last week Michael Cohen, 52, pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about his role in building a Trump Tower in Moscow – a tower that was never even built.

Michael Cohen’s lawyers asked for no prison time; Cohen reportedly thought Trump was going to pardon him.

But the liberal prosecutors suggested 51 to 63 months in prison when referring to the sentence.

Cohen reportedly cooperated with special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia witch hunt and provided information that “was ultimately credible and useful to its ongoing investigation.”

For this he will serve up to five years in prison.

President Trump tweeted about Cohen’s sentencing and the court’s findings.

It looks like Cohen may be on his own here.

CNBC reported on the filing:

  • The Southern District of New York cited sentencing guidelines of 51 to 63 months in prison when referring to the sentence.
  • Prosecutors asked for a “substantial term of imprisonment” for Cohen, whom they slammed for committing crimes intended to affect the 2016 presidential election: “Cohen sought to influence the election from the shadows … [he] clouded a process that Congress has painstakingly sought to keep transparent. The sentence imposed should reflect the seriousness of Cohen’s brazen violations of the election laws and attempt to counter the public cynicism that may arise when individuals like Cohen act as if the political process belongs to the rich and powerful.”
  • But they noted in the memo that their recommendation be modestly lower than the suggested range of prison time suggested in federal guidelines.
  • Prosecutors also wrote: “While Cohen – as his own submission makes clear – already enjoyed a privileged life, his desire for even greater wealth and influence precipitated an extensive course of criminal conduct.”
  • The U.S. attorney’s office noted that Cohen’s cooperation with special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe provided information that “was ultimately credible and useful to its ongoing investigation.”
  • But, the prosecutors added that “Cohen repeatedly declined to provide full information about the scope of any additional criminal conduct in which he may have engaged or had knowledge.”
  • The prosecutors also pushed back on the characterization of Cohen from his lawyers, who presented Cohen’s cooperation as an act of principle: “While Cohen’s provision of information to the [special counsel] merits credit, his description of his actions as arising solely from some ‘personal resolve’ … ignores that Cohen first reached out to meet with the [special counsel] at a time when he knew he was under imminent threat of indictment in this District. As such, any suggestion by Cohen that his meetings with law enforcement reflect a selfless and unprompted about-face are overstated.”

According to The Gateway Pundit, Cohen’s previous plea deal with federal prosecutors in the SDNY focused on finance felonies; he pleaded guilty to six felonies related to his personal business in August.

Then Mueller interrogated Michael Cohen for 70 hours about the Trump campaign’s so-called contacts with Russians, Trump’s business ties to Russia, obstruction of justice and talk of possible pardons, according to ABC News.

It isn’t new news that Michael Cohen was discussing plans to develop a Trump Tower in Moscow, but the Deep State and fake news media need their ‘Trump-Russia’ headlines, so here we are.

John Bolton and Canada’s Trudeau knew of Huawei CFO arrest. Failed to inform Trump (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 33.

Published

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris take a quick look at how John Bolton and Canadian PM Trudeau knew ahead of time that Huawei CFO was to be arrested and never informed Trump…knowing that as Meng was being arrested in Canada, the US President was sitting down for trade talks with China’s President Xi.

According to Reuters, and rather inexplicably, even as Bolton knew about Meng’s imminent arrest, President Donald Trump was reportedly unaware the U.S. had requested Meng’s extradition from Canada before he joined Chinese President Xi Jinping for dinner on Saturday, a White House official said.

The news would imply that the White House was not planning to use the arrest of the Huawei CFO as part of a “hostage” negotiation strategy in trade talks with China at the G20.

Adding a further level of deceit and complication to the bizarre story, was news emerging that while Trump reportedly did not know about the DOJ’s extradition request, Canada’s PM Trudeau did, something Trudeau told reporters during a press conference in Montreal…

“We are a country of an independent judiciary and the appropriate authorities took the decisions in this case without any political involvement or interference”

“We were advised by them with a few days’ notice that this was in the works.”

Meanwhile China is preparing its retaliation against the abduction of the Huawei CFO.

Update: Reuters has confirmed the earlier Bloomberg report that Wanzhou’s arrest has provoked “intense debate” among senior Communist Party officials about how to respond.

According to a separate report, Huawei has made a $2 billion “commitment” to address “security concerns” raised by the British government earlier this year.

* * *

As Beijing’s outrage over the arrest of Huawei CFO Wanzhou Meng simmers ahead of her Friday arraignment in a Canadian court, Bloomberg has shed some light on how news of her arrest has resonated with different factions in the Chinese leadership.

The upshot is that while officials in charge of managing China’s trade negotiations believe China shouldn’t allow Wanzhou’s arrest to impact trade negotiations, hardline national security officials believe the arrest is an embarrassment to Chinese leader Xi Jinping, who reportedly had ‘no idea’ that the daughter of a Chinese business icon and Communist Party member had been arrested in Canada – and that China should use trade talks as leverage to demand that she be released.

Western media outlets have reported that, while White House officials and National Security Advisor John Bolton knew about Wanzhou’s arrest before Saturday’s meeting between Trump and Xi, the president somehow had no idea.

Now, BBG is reporting that Xi similarly had no idea that one of his country’s most prominent executives had been taken into custody hours before he sat down with Trump. This asymmetry is viewed as deeply embarrassing to China’s leader, and many believe that simply letting trade negotiations to move forward as plan would be an unconscionable capitulation – particularly if (as many analysts believe) the Trump Administration intends to use her arrest as leverage.

Still others believe that Wanzhou’s arrest is a “gift” for Xi, because it gives cover for the Chinese to dig in their heels and accuse the US of using the trade war as a pretext to stymie China’s ascent as a global superpower. In light of Wanzhou’s arrest, such a stance would likely garner more sympathy from the rest of the world.

As China contemplates how to respond, at least there is one silver lining: It helps China appear sincere to the world in wanting to resolve the trade war. He can say he is trying to resolve the issue but the US has an entrenched strategy to cut off China’s rise as a global power – a theme that state-run media picked up on Friday.

“The Huawei arrest gives China’s leaders a huge gift,’ said Barry Naughton, a professor at the University of California in San Diego who studies China. “It makes super plausible the narrative they’ve been trying to promote all along: ‘The U.S. just can’t stand our rise, they can’t stand to lose their dominance, they can’t treat anybody like an equal.'”

But one salient fact has been agreed on by all sides: Wanzhou’s arrest doesn’t bode well for a trade detente.

Officials concerned about the economy warned a collapse in trade talks would hurt China more than the Huawei arrest. Trump has threatened to raise tariffs to 25 percent on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods if a deal isn’t reached in 90 days. In the worst case of a 25 percent duty on all Chinese goods, 2019 economic growth could slump about 1.5 percentage points to 5 percent, down from 6.6 forecast for this year, according to Bloomberg Economics.

“The detention of Huawei’s CFO is not an accidental incident and will cast a shadow over the trade talks, but both sides will work hard to avert that bad influence,” said Wei Jianguo, former vice minister of commerce and now a vice chairman of the China Center for International Economic Exchanges. “The negotiation between Chinese and U.S. working groups is going smoothly, and actually much better than people outside expected.”

Because even if President Xi does opt to continue negotiating as per Saturday’s deal, he will now need to extract even more concessions in order not to look powerless. And although Chinese officials have said they won’t retaliate by arresting US executives – well – we wouldn’t blame any US executives in China for grabbing their passports and chartering a flight to anywhere but China as quickly as humanly possible.

“Ms. Meng’s arrest threatens to make China’s leadership look powerless in securing the release of not only a citizen, but a senior executive and daughter of one of China’s business icons,” said Michael Hirson, Asia director at Eurasia Group and a former U.S. Treasury Department official. “Nationalist sentiment will thus make it harder for Beijing to offer major concessions to Trump.”

Publicly, at least, China is keeping the issues separate. On Thursday, commerce ministry spokesman Gao Feng told reporters that China is implementing agreements reached with the U.S. on agriculture, autos and energy. “In the next 90 days we will work in accordance with the clear timetable and road map” to negotiate in areas of mutual benefit, he said.

Then on Friday, foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang dismissed concerns that China would retaliate against U.S. companies.

“China always protects the legal rights and interests of foreigners in China, but they should also abide by all Chinese laws and regulations,” Geng said.

In what’s perhaps the clearest indication of China’s outrage over the arrest, government-run media railed against Meng’s arrest in editorials published on Friday.

“Obviously Washington is resorting to a despicable rogue’s approach as it cannot stop Huawei’s 5G advance in the market,” the Communist Mouthpiece Global Times said in an editorial.

The upshot: If the US tries to use Whenzhou’s arrest as leverage, they could wind up killing a promising deal.

Saturday is “Act Four”: Yellow Vests face off against 89,000 Macron army (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 32.

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris take a quick look at French President Macron’s plan to deploy 8,000 riot police in Paris on Saturday, and 89,000 officers and security forces across France, as the Elysee prepares for “act four” of the Yellow Vest movement’s protests against the globalist, neo-liberal regime of “Jupiter” Macron.

Zerohedge reports that in addition to the closure of the Eiffel Tower on Saturday, several Paris museums have announced that they won’t be open this weekend.

“The demonstrations announced Saturday, December 8 in Paris cannot guarantee the safety of visitors, the Sete has made the decision to close the Eiffel Tower,” announced the Societe de la Tour Eiffel which operates the monument.

Despite Macron’s government delaying a planned fuel hike by six months, the Yellow Vest movement has called on its followers to “stay on our course,” over Facebook and gather for “The Act IV”  on Saturday the 8th, in what will be the fourth week of protests.

Coup attempt?

French intelligence services have reported to the Elysee Palace – the official residence of President Macron, in light of “calls to kill” and “carry arms to attack” government officials, parliamentarians and police, according to Le Figaro. “They are putschists. We are in a coup attempt,” said Le Figaro‘s sources.

On Thursday, Yellow Vest leader Eric Drouet said “Saturday will be the final outcome. Saturday is the Elysee,” adding “we all would like to go to the Elysee.

Le Figaro also reports that Saturday’s demonstrations may involve unprecedented violence, as it may include “a hard core radicalized” element,  from “both the extreme right and extreme left.

Four people have died over the last several weeks of protests across France – including an 80-year-old womanwho died of shock after a police tear-gas canister was launched into her apartment window as she was trying to close it. Over 400 people were arrested in last weekend’s violent protests, while more than 130 were injured.

Macron’s administration has struggled to calm the protesters – initially delaying a planned fuel tax hike by six months, and then floating a tax increase for the wealthy. Thus far, none of it has worked.

Yellow Vest protesters recently told Russian state-owned RT that the government has lost touch with its people, and that they have to “put humane attitude first, and not the money.” Another protester said that they “would prefer to be at work, than to find [themselves] on the streets shouting, hoping for nothing.”
