Hillary Clinton Exchanged Favors to Sweden for $26 Million Donation • 5/28/15 •Donation

May 28th, 2015 • Peter Schweizer explains how 26 million dollars in donations from Sweden to the Clinton’s immediately resulted in favorable actions by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on behalf of telecom giant Ericsson and other Swedish companies.

Clinton Fdn raised $26 mn in Sweden as gov’t lobbied Hillary on Iran sanctions – report

The Clinton Foundation raised $26 million in Sweden while the Scandinavian country’s government was lobbying US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to forgo sanctions that threatened business dealings with Iran, according to the Washington Times.

The Clinton Foundation’s Swedish organization was called the “William J. Clinton Foundation Insamlingsstiftelse” and had never been cleared with State Department ethics officials, according to the Times.

When Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State in 2009, she agreed to implement a transparent review system of her husband’s fundraising and speaking engagements; one which would scrutinize them for potential ties to foreign nations dealing with the US government. However, the Times reported that some activities were not known to the State Department.

The foundation’s Swedish division escaped the notice of regulators because its incorporation papers were filed in Stockholm. Additionally, the identities of its donors were included in disclosure reports of the US-based charity, making it difficult to tell how the two separate entities differed.

The Swedish fundraising arm was set up at the same time the Swedish government was worrying about new penalties and sanctions being levied against Iran over its nuclear program, the Times stated. State Department cables released by Wikileaks show that many Swedish companies – including Volvo, Ericsson and ABB – were against tighter financial sanctions.

“Sweden does not support implementing tighter financial sanctions on Iran” and believes “more stringent financial standards could hurt Swedish exports,” reads one cable sent to the State Department.

At the time, Iran was Sweden’s second-largest export market in the Middle East after Saudi Arabia, according the Times. Ericsson was Iran’s second-largest cellular provider.

Ericsson itself didn’t make any contributions to the Swedish Clinton Foundation group, but it did pay the former president $750,000 for a speech in Hong Kong in November 2011, just weeks after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton released the first sanctions list for Iran that excluded Ericsson and Volvo.

The Clinton Foundation told the Times the Swedish branch of her foundation was established in 2011 to collect donations from lotteries in Sweden and take advantage of changes in Swedish law that allowed some of the country’s lotteries to send money abroad. In this case, the Clinton Foundation received cash for causes such as fighting climate change, AIDS in Africa and cholera in Haiti.

The Clinton Foundation is a philanthropy, period. We’ve voluntarily disclosed our more than 300,000 donors on our website, including those from Sweden,”said Clinton Foundation spokesman Craig Minassian to the newspaper.

Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential declined to comment on the matter.

London Court Grants Swedish Request to Extradite Assange

By RAVI SOMAIYA

“…Judge Howard Riddle took just over an hour to issue a sweeping dismissal of the defense team’s arguments — from arcane technical points to dark suggestions that Mr. Assange would not receive a fair trial in Sweden and might even face extradition to the United States, imprisonment at the Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, prison and possibly death.

The judge said that Mr. Assange appeared to have been “deliberately avoiding interrogation” when he left Sweden in September in the wake of allegations by two women in Stockholm that he had sexually abused them. Under Sweden’s strict sexual-crimes laws, he is accused of two counts of sexual molestation, one count of unlawful coercion and one count of rape. His accusers, both WikiLeaks volunteers, have said that their sexual encounters with Mr. Assange started out as consensual but turned nonconsensual.

Under the circumstances, Judge Riddle said, Swedish prosecutors had every right to issue a warrant last December for his arrest and return.

Mr. Assange, a 39-year-old Australian, was impassive but pale as the judgment was delivered. Outside the court, he described the decision as “a rubber-stamping process” and reiterated his determination to fight the decision. …”

“…

Mr. Assange has told friends in Britain that he feared that extradition to Sweden would be a step toward prosecution on American soil for his work with WikiLeaks. But a former colleague said in an interview that he thought Mr. Assange’s concerns were more immediate.

The colleague, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, one of the OpenLeaks founders, told reporters last week that when Mr. Assange first heard about the sexual abuse allegations in late August, “he was not concerned about the United States.”

“He was very scared of going to prison in Sweden,” Mr. Domscheit-Berg said, “which he thought might happen.”

If Mr. Assange’s appeals fail and he is returned to Sweden, the country’s procedures will not allow him bail, and he will probably be jailed in the city of Gothenburg, the British court was told.

If convicted, he could receive a maximum sentence of four years. …”

The real fear of all governments is that a thousand WikiLeaks bloom.

One way to slow down if not stop government interventionism in a country and abroad is for massive leaking and  disclosure of government activities that are corrupt and/or criminal.

“As human nature is, everybody is prone to overrate his own worth and deserts.”

“The essence of the interventionist policy is to take from one group to give to another. It is confiscation and distribution.”

~Ludwig von Mises

“They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security.”

Sofia Karlsson

“…In the grey and pale Swedish winter season the onslaught of the annual domestic Eurovision Song Contest totally dominates the media and air waves. Meanwhile Sofia Karlsson and her band, on their second consecutive year, continue their seemingly everlasting tour. This time around Gothenburg, in the Southwestern part of Sweden. In churches, libraries, cinemas, restaurants and theatres Karlsson sings her songs to sold out houses every night. A renaissance for a genre, the Swedish visa*, today often dismissed as belonging rather in a museum than on stage? Whatever the reason, the longing for a strong melody, a good story and a fine story teller is beyond doubt. And few deliver like Sofia Karlsson in this sense. With a diction almost uncannily perfect and an unusual attention to the value of the words she has an ability to infuse new life into even the most worn out and often performed material. The unprecedented success of her platinum selling album Svarta ballader (Black ballads) from 2005 with her pioneering interpretations of Swedish poet Dan Andersson is a proof of this as good as any. …”

Sofia Karlson MySpace

“…Sofia Karlsson – Vocalist from Stockholm. Musical influences: First grandma playing chorals on the pump organ, grandad playing the single row accordion and mother who always sang in the car, later Fred Åkerström, Dolly Parton, Tracy Chapman, Dansar Edward, Kirsten Bråten-Berg and Lena Willemark.

Educated at the Folk music dept. of the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. Between 1998-2002 full time member in Swedish folk music act Groupa. Released her debut solo album Folk songs (Amigo, AMCD 748), in 2002. Her hugely successful second solo album Black Ballads – Sofia Karlsson sings Dan Andersson (Amigo, AMCD 756) was released in 2005.

*VISA – The words chanson, lied, visa all mean the same thing in their respective language, i.e. song, and yet each of them has a meaning that distinguishes them from songs in general.

In Scandinavia, the word “visa” usually refers to a text of literary quality joined by stanzas and matched with a melody repeated with the stanzas. The typical visa is of “small size”. In recent years, yet another criterion has come along, namely that it should be “interpretable”.  …”

In 2005 she made her public breakthrough with her second album “Svarta ballader” (Black ballads). The album contains her interpretations of the Swedish poet Dan Andersson. The album was in the charts for more than a year and has to date sold 60.000 copies and was rewarded with a Swedish as well as a Danish Grammy.

After touring Sweden for two years she released her third album “Visor från vinden” (Songs from the loft) with its collection of classical Swedish songs written by famous Swedish musicians as Fred Åkerström, Peps Persson, Lars Forsell and Evert Taube. …”
