Some in the Alternative Media say that presidential candidates and even presidents are selected by and serve at the pleasure of powerful élites behind the scenes — The Powers That Be (TPTB).
Now an email has surfaced from the time when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State in the Obama administration which gives credence to that penultimate conspiracy theory. The email was released by WikiLeaks.
The email, dated January 24, 2011, was from Jacob J. Sullivan to Hillary Clinton, on the unrest in Albania — a former Soviet-bloc country in Eastern Europe which became the Republic of Albania in April 1991.
Note: Despite his relatively young age of 39, Jacob Jeremiah “Jake” Sullivan is a long-time Democratic Party apparatchik, with close associations with Hillary Clinton. He was Hillary’s deputy chief of staff when she was Secretary of State; deputy policy director for Hillary’s 2008 presidential campaign; deputy assistant to President Barack Obama; national security adviser to Vice President Joe Biden; and currently the top foreign policy adviser in Hillary’s 2016 presidential election campaign. Sullivan is widely rumored to be a front-runner for the position of U.S. National Security Adviser in a Hillary Clinton administration if she is elected President this November.
Sullivan’s email to Hillary consists of a forwarded email from George Soros, the billonaire international financier and currency speculator who funds and foments protests in the U.S., as well as the refugee invasion of Europe. (See “‘Arab Spring’ in America: NAACP joins Soros-funded coalition for massive protests in D.C.,” “List of persons/groups paid by Soros to protest in Ferguson & Selma,” and “Soros aids invasion of Christian Europe by Muslim refugees, says Hungary prime minister”.)
Soros had sent the email addressed to Hillary to his Open Society Foundations flunky, special adviser Jonas Rolett, who forwarded it to then-assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs Richard R. Verma, who forwarded it to Jacob “Jake” Sullivan.
Here’s a screenshot of the PDF of Jake Sullivan’s email. I provided the red color emphasis.
A serious situation has arisen in Albania which needs urgent attention at senior levels of the US government. You may know that an opposition demonstration in Tirana on Friday resulted in the deaths of three people and the destruction of property. There are serious concerns about further unrest connected to a counter-demonstration to be organized by the governing party on Wednesday and a follow-up event by the opposition two days later to memorialize the victims. The propect of tens of thousands of people entering the streets in an already inflamed political environment bodes ill for the return of public order and the country’s fragile democratic process.
I believe two things need to be done urgently:
1. Bring the full weight of the international community to bear on Prime Minister Berisha and opposition leader Edi Rama to forestall further public demonstrations and to tone down public pronouncements.
2. Appoint a senior European official as mediator.
While I am concerned about the rhetoric being used by both sides, I am particularly worried about the actions of the Prime Minister. There is videotape of National Guard members firing on demonstrators from the roof of the Prime Ministry. The Prosecutor (appointed by the Democratic Party) has issued arrest warrants for the individual in question. The Prime Minister had previously accused the opposition of intentionally murdering these activists as a provocation. After the tape came out deputies from his party accused the Prosecutor of planning a coup d’etat in collaboration with the opposition, a charge Mr. Berisha repeated today. No arrests have been made as of this writing.
The demonstration resulted from opposition protests over the conduct of parliamentary elections in 2009. The political environment has deteriorated ever since and is now approaching levels of 1997, when similar issues caused the country to slide into anarchy and violence. There are signs that Edi Rama’s control of his own people is slipping, which may lead to further violence.
The US and the EU must work in complete harmony over this, but given Albania’s European aspirations [to become a member of EU] the EU must take the lead. That is why I suggest appointing a mediator such as Carl Bildt, Martti Ahtisaari or Miroslav Lajcak, all of whom have strong connections to the Balkans.
My foundation in Tirana is monitoring the situation closely and can provide independent analysis of the crisis.
Note that in his email, Soros — who was neither elected nor appointed to conduct U.S. foreign policy — instructed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that:
- Albania’s Prime Minister Berisha must be brought under control.
- The unrest in Albania requires a mediator.
- The mediator should be an European, e.g., Carl Bildt, Martti Ahtisaari or Miroslav Lajcak.
Sure enough, on January 26, 2011, two days after Jake Sullivan forwarded Soros’ email to Hillary, EUbusiness reported that:
Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha on Wednesday [January 26] cancelled a planned weekend rally of pro-government supporters after talks with a European Union mediator….
Berisha’s decision came after a meeting with EU Balkans envoy Miroslav Lajcak who arrived earlier in the day to mediate the growing political crisis.
Apart from Berisha, Lajcak also met President Bamir Topi and was to due to have talks with opposition leader Edi Rama.
In other words, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton followed George Soros’ instructions to the letter.
Now we know who’s Hillary’s puppeteer.
