Heavy rare earth elements (HREEs) like Uranium, are energy and nuclear weapon elements. The HREE mines are also associated with rare earth elements (REEs) like Ytterbium and Dysprosium that are the driving technology elements – both developed for use by the United States and both are crucial resources for Our National security. (ref. Putin’s doctoral dissertation via St’. Petersburg Mining Academy)
We knew about Podesta’s lobbying, for Uranium One, in 2012 – when Hillary was Secretary of State.
Podesta Group Inc. was paid $40,000, by Uranium One, to lobby, the Senate, the National Park Service, the National Security Counsel, and the State Department, for “International mining projects”.
In July 2005 Gazprom CEO and Putin deputy Alexei Miller told the Financial Times “that the company wanted to become one of the largest integrated energy companies in the world, spanning oil, gas and electricity.”
Dmitry Medvedev, Chairman of Gazprom’s Board of Directors and head of the Kremlin administration, made a similar statement following the acquisition of Sibneft, noting that Gazprom “will not only become the world’s largest natural gas producer, but also one of the world’s biggest energy companies” (RIANovosti, September 29, 2005).
Hillary Clinton flew with UrAsia Energy’s, Frank Giustra, in September 2005, on a private jet to Kazakhstan, to publicly support Kazakhstan’s president, Nursultan Nazarbayev, who had just allegedly won an election with more than 90 percent of the vote,
While there, Giustra negotiated with Kazakh’s mining agency, Kazataprom, for rights to three mines.
In 2007, UrAsia Energy, with its access to Kazakhstan’s lucrative mines, merged with South Africa’s Uranium One in a $3.5 billion deal.
As the money kept pouring into the Clinton Foundation, the State Department, which came under the control of Hillary Clinton in January 2009, approved a series of transactions that allowed Russia’s Rosatom to buy up shares in Uranium One. By June 2009, Rosatom had a 51 percent stake in the company.
Then, in 2015, The Podesta Group lobbied Secretary John Kerry and the Senate for “International trade issues.”
John Podesta also owned 75,000 shares in a green energy company, Joule Unlimited. Joule CEO Brian Baynes told BioFuels Digest in a rare interview in July. “But those new investor prospects walked away, particularly post-election.”
Dmitry Akhanov, the president and CEO of Rusnano USA Inc., a Kremlin-owned venture capital firm nicknamed “Putin’s child,” oversaw the Russian government’s investment in Joule and sat on its board along with two other Russians with ties to the Kremlin. Akhavov agreed that Clinton’s loss doomed the company.
“We lined up investors who were willing to buy the bonds, but after the elections, with some statements from the new administration regarding potential uncertainty, the future support of biofuels was stopped,” he told The Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview. “The company was not able to do the deal and it was one of the reasons why the company was closed.”
Russia Today (aka RT) is the Putin Pravda, in the US, and had three of it’s anchors quit on the air. During the 2016 elections, RT went out of it’s way to promote third party candidates like Jill Stein and Gary Johnson – which would have been more detrimental to Donald J. Trump’s campaign.
It would not be the first time that Putin supported a spoiler, in an election, when Viktor Yushchenko split Yulia Tymoshenko’s vote – ushering in her rival, Viktor Yanukovych… a Putin puppet.
