Sen. Rand Paul Says Hillary Takes Political “Bribery” from Head-Chopping Wahhabis

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) told POLITICO on Friday that foreign contributions to the Clinton Foundation are “thinly veiled bribes,” and said Hillary Clinton should return any donations from Saudi Arabia or other countries that abuse the rights of women.

“The normal Clinton response is to cover up, deny, refuse to acknowledge,” Paul said in a telephone interview as he was being driven through New Hampshire. “But the question is whether the country will rise up and respond to the unseemly nature of accepting foreign donations. “

Paul said that in addition to Saudi Arabia, the foundation should return donations from the United Arab Emirates and Brunei.

“In countries that stone people to death for adultery and imprison people for adultery, this is the kind of thing you would think someone for women’s rights would be standing up against, instead of accepting thinly veiled bribes,” the senator added.

In remarks for delivery to Republican activists Friday night at the Carroll County Lincoln Day Dinner in North Conway, N.H., Paul will say: “There has been much talk of a war on women. There is indeed a war on women — in Saudi Arabia. When Hillary Clinton claims she will support women’s rights, ask her why she accepted millions of dollars from” — and then he plans to mention specific countries.

The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday night that the Clinton Foundation received $7.3 million from Saudi Arabians from 1999 to 2014, based on contributions of more than $50,000. The Clinton Foundation says the money has gone to good projects that are “improving the lives of millions of people around the globe.”

Adrienne E. Watson, deputy communications director and director of surrogates for American Bridge’s Correct the Record, a pro-Clinton group, said: “This is rich coming from Rand Paul, who defends individual liberties only when it suits him, and not when these rights extend to the pay discrimination or healthcare of women. Hillary Clinton has spent a lifetime advocating on behalf of women, children and their families. Throughout her life and through the charitable work of the Clinton Foundation and programs like No Ceilings, she has helped improve the lives of millions of women throughout the world.”

 

Russia delivers nuclear threat to Denmark

Russia delivers nuclear threat to Denmark

the local dk


Tensions between Denmark and Russia were ratcheted up a notch on Saturday.

Russia’s ambassador to Denmark, Mikhail Vanin, wrote in an opinion piece published by Jyllands-Posten that Denmark has made itself a target of a potential nuclear attack by joining Nato’s missile defence system.
“I don’t think the Danes fully understand the consequences of what will happen if Denmark joins the American-controlled missile defence. If it happens, Danish war ships will become targets for Russian atomic missiles,” Vanin wrote.
Denmark announced in August that it will will contribute at least one frigate to Nato’s defence system. At the time, Defence Minister Nicolai Wammen said that joining the missile defence system was not a move aimed at Russia.
“That Denmark will join the missile defence system with radar capacity on one or more of our frigates is not an action that is targeted against Russia, but rather to protect us against rogues states, terrorist organisations and others that have the capacity to fire missiles at Europe and the US,” Wammen told Jyllands-Posten in August.
Vanin’s op-ed made it clear that Russia doesn’t share that interpretation.
“Denmark will become a part of the threat against Russia. It will be less peaceful and the relationship with Russia will be harmed. It is of course your decision – I want to simply remind you that it will cost you both money and security,” Vanin wrote.
“At the same time, Russia has missiles that are guaranteed to break through future global missile defence systems,” he continued.
Danish Foreign Minister Martin Lidegaard called Vanin’s statements “unacceptable”.
“Russia knows fully well that Nato’s missile defence is not aimed at them. We are in disagreement with Russia on a number of important things but it is important that the tone between us does not escalate,” Lidegaard told Jyllands-Posten.
The US ambassador to Denmark, Rufus Gifford, also responded to Vanin’s remarks.
“We stand with our staunch Nato ally Denmark in condemning the unacceptable statements made by Russia’s Ambassador to Denmark. We have made clear that Nato’s ballistic missile defence is not directed at any country, but is meant to defend against missile threats,” Gifford wrote on Facebook.

Denmark’s relationship with Russia has been strained by increased Russian airspace activity over and near Denmark.

In December a Russian military jet nearly collided with a SAS passenger plane out of Copenhagen. An October report from the Danish Defence Intelligence Service (Forsvarets Efterretningstjeneste) revealed that Russia carried out a simulated attack on the island of Bornholm last summer, and in March last year a Swedish SAS pilot said his plane was “just seconds” from crashing into a Russian jet.
Vanin is not exactly a stranger to controversial statements. Following the December near-miss with the SAS, he suggested that Swedish authorities may have imagined the whole thing after smoking too much cannabis.
“The Swedish authorities also recently said there was a submarine in their waters. There wasn’t. Now they say again that they have seen something. I’m afraid the Swedes visit Pusher Street very often,” Vanin told Berlingske, referring to the Christiania neighbourhood in Copenhagen known for its cannabis trade.
Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt said in November that Denmark is not overly concerned about Russian aggression.
“In terms of our territory, we are not worried. We keep our heads calm and the cockpit warm,” she said.
Wammen has also said that Denmark would not hesitate to stand up to Russia telling the Financial Times that “the Russians know we will do what is necessary.”

Russia Says Ending Huge Military Drills that Rattled West

Russia said it was ending military drills Saturday that saw over 80,000 troops mobilised from the Pacific to the Black Sea in a show of force amid tensions with the West.

A senior military official said that the nationwide exercises — that included sending nuclear bombers to Crimea and ballistic missiles to Kaliningrad in the heart of Europe — would end on Saturday afternoon.

President Vladimir Putin gave the order for them to start on Monday.

“Troops have been given the order to return to their permanent bases,” Lieutenant general Andrei Kartapolov was quoted as saying by the Interfax news agency.

The massive military exercises — some of the biggest by Russia since the collapse of the Soviet Union — have givem leaders across Eastern Europe the jitters.

Moscow and the West are locked in a bitter showdown over the crisis in Ukraine that has pushed relations to their lowest point since the end of the Cold War.

Kiev and its allies accuse the Kremlin of pouring arms and troops across its border to spearhead a bloody pro-Russian rebellion, allegations that Moscow denies.

NATO members including the United States and Germany have beefed up exercises with the alliance’s eastern nations, such as Poland and Lithuania, in a bid to reassure allies anxious over a bullish Russia.
