Hillary Clinton often makes fun of Donald Trump for stating once upon a time that “climate change is a hoax” perpetrated by the Chinese in order to sabotage the US economy.
Thanks to Wikileaks, we know have, on record, Hillary Clinton making similar, outrageous comments about the climate and environment. Hillary however, does not place the blame on the Chinese. No, Clinton prefers to fall back on her “go to” country of demonisation, Russia.
Believe us, when we tell you that Hillary Clinton’s latest “blame it on Russia” rant is so ridiculous and “mental”, that we, at The Duran, could not even believe what we were reading. HRC takes Russophobia to a whole new universe.
Wikileaks has uncovered a speech made by the former US Secretary of State, to an audience of “North American oil and natural gas tycoons”, where HRC makes this claim…
“We were up against Russia pushing oligarchs and others to buy media. We were even up against phony environmental groups, and I’m a big environmentalist, but these were funded by the Russians to stand against any effort, oh that pipeline, that fracking, that whatever will be a problem for you, and a lot of the money supporting that message was coming from Russia.”
Of course, the stand against fracking and oil pipelines like the Keystone XL came not from Russia, but from the progressive wing of the Democratic Party that largely backed her primary opponent Bernie Sanders out of concern about her sincerity when speaking about these critical issues in light of her past statements and practices as Secretary of State in favor of hydraulic fracturing.
Studies have linked the practice to a startling uptick in “man-made” earthquakes as the release of fracking fluid into the earth’s core causes new fault lines to develop – a reality that has ravaged several US states most prominent of which is Oklahoma where people report rattling earthquakes regularly.
The practice has also been a concern for environmentalists concerned about water contamination which has been reported frequently in areas that conduct fracturing with a number of viral YouTube videos of people even being able to take a match to their tap water to emit a large flame. The process theoretically, with proper sealing, can be conducted without this consequence but in practice such failures occur often.
Hillary Clinton maintained during the primary election that she opposed the process of fracking as well as major expansion to oil and natural gas pipelines, but these statements appear to fly in contrast to those espoused views with the Secretary of State even incorporating a Russian conspiracy into any efforts to stop the environmentally ruinous practices.
Clearly Hillary cannot be trusted with anything she says about Russia at this point.
