New York Times: “The headline in Pravda trumpeted President Vladimir V. Putin’s latest coup, its nationalistic fervor recalling an era when the newspaper served as the official mouthpiece of the Kremlin: “Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.”
The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.
At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One.
Opinion: Be still my heart. When the New York Times publishes a story damaging to the only Democrat candidate, so far, I am shocked. And when it is the second time, I get the feeling that something is up.
It was the NYT and AP that broke the story of Hillary’s personal email scandal.
The headline in Pravda “Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World” is reminiscent of Saddam’s favorite saying “Control Mid East Oil, Control the world”.
The NYT article continues “Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.”
Since the blood-feud between the Clinton’s and Obama’s is no secret, the uber -liberal Times may be helping the Obama’s pick a new candidate.
