Free Parking Sept 19 2018 - Manafort Guilty Pleahttp://eureka.news/free-parking-49/
Paul Manaforts guilty plea to conspiracy against the United States laid out his scheme to steal the 2008 Ukrainian election where he installed Putins man, Yanukovich. It was simple and effective: Accuse the female politician of crimes she didnt commit and install a puppet to remove Russian money-laundering/human rights sanctions.
Court documents show that Manafort used media, including Robert Mercers Breitbart News, to plant false murder conspiracies against Yulia Tymoshenko, a staunch human rights defender. Manaforts job was to politically destroy Tymoshenko and make Viktor Yanukovychs real corruption palatable enough to be overlooked by Europe.
Fast forward to 2016 and Manaforts same smearing techniques were used by Trumps campaign against Hillary Clinton. Putin detested Secretary of State Clinton because of her fierce advocacy for human rights. He didnt want her as president and spent time, money and immense energy to put his puppet, Trump, into the Oval Office.
We are living under a fake president who is being given all the authority and honor a real one would receive. He has made a mockery of our Constitution and called our White House a dump. He has created division among Americans and sullied our message of inclusivity so completely that we should give the Statue of Liberty back to France.
A recent NBC town hall featured young people representing various segments of society, and many discussed their immense scorn for the election process. Rather than becoming educated about candidates policies, they felt a need to be inspired to vote. They felt Hillary Clinton, the fully qualified, first woman candidate for president was uninspiring, and didnt vote.
