Hillary Clinton And Our Hypersonic Missile Gap With Russia

Last week, Russian President Vladimir Putin used his state-of-the-nation speech to deliver a stern warning to the United States that Russia possesses hypersonic weapons that can render NATO’s U.S.-led missile defense system completely “useless.”

Putin confirmed our thoughts about the era of hypersonic is now, and an arms race among major superpowers is well underway; he said, all countries with a high level of scientific potential “are actively developing Russian missilehypersonic weapons.”

Here is the bombshell: “Russia already possesses such weapons,” the president announced. He warned that the world’s leading armies (China, Russia, and the United States) are in a hypersonic arms race. The Russian possession of hypersonic weapons has spurred a modern, compact and hi-tech revolution of Armed Forces, Putin added.

“We can say with full grounds: Russia has created modern Armed Forces, which are compact and hi-tech troops for this huge territory, with the officer corps as its heart, where every officer is ready for any sacrifice for its nation,” he said according to our friends at

One might fairly ask, as Americans did back in the 1960s, how did this “missile gap” come to be, given the vast difference in the size of the American economy vs. the Russian economy?

The answer, it turns out, lies with Hillary Clinton and her infamous Russian “reset.”

Less than a year ago our friend Diana West, author of the must-read books American Betrayal and The Death of the Grown Up, wrote a piece for the Daily Caller in which she called attention to emails obtained by Citizens United, “Clinton Foundation staff pushed Hillary Clinton’s State Department to approve a meeting between Bill Clinton and a powerful Russian oligarch as her agency lined up investors for a project under his purview.”

His name was Viktor Vekselberg of Renova (a Clinton Foundation donor) and the project under his purview was the Skolkovo Innovation Center, which was being built near Moscow. The following month, Bill Clinton would receive $500,000 for a speech in Moscow from a Renaissance Capital, a Russian investment bank with ties to the Kremlin, a Clinton Foundation donor, a Skolkovo executive, and which talked up Uranium One, whose sale the Clinton State Department would approve, and whose executives together contributed $145 million to the Clinton Foundation.

The shocking set of emails that West dissected last year, shows the nexus of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s foundation, Hillary Clinton’s State Department, Bill Clinton, Russian oligarch Vekselberg, and Skolkovo, “Russia’s Silicon Valley,” the Putin project to transfer Western technology to Russia that was championed and driven by Mrs. Clinton — and, what do you know, 17 out of 28 tech companies that hitched up with Skolkovo also contributed to the Clinton Foundation? What a coincidence. Meanwhile, Barack Obama’s support for Russian WTO membership made the whole global flow so much easier.

What should get the attention of American counterintelligence is that the threat posed by the Russian hypersonic missile program was known from an Army report on Skolkovo released in 2013 and highlighted by Peter Schweizer in his 2016 report, "From Russian with Money," to assess “the implications … for U.S. policymakers.” 

Although military activities are not an official cluster of activity, the Skolkovo Foundation has, in fact, been involved in defense-related activities since December 2011, when it approved the first weapons-related project—the development of a hypersonic cruise missile engine. The project is a response to the U.S. Department of Defense’s Advanced Hypersonic Weapon, part of the Prompt Global Strike program.

In her 2017 article, West noted that in November 2016, shortly after Donald Trump was elected president, the US Air Force released a report on the Russian and Chinese hypersonic missile threat to the United States:

The United States is vulnerable to future attack by hypersonic missiles from China and Russia and is falling behind in the technology race to develop both defensive and offensive high-speed maneuvering arms, according to a new Air Force study. “The People’s Republic of China and the Russian Federation are already flight-testing high-speed maneuvering weapons (HSMWs) that may endanger both forward deployed U.S. forces and even the continental United States itself,” an executive summary of the report says. “These weapons appear to operate in regimes of speed and altitude, with maneuverability that could frustrate existing missile defense constructs and weapon capabilities.”

In a functioning democratic republic, argued West, the executive branch decisions and procedures and corruption that led to this defense cataclysm would actually alarm security officials, lawmakers, and even arouse media curiosity, if nothing else. But Skolkovo, the money, the corruption, the treachery, the danger, inspire no reaction at all.

Indeed, in a recent email exchange West observed that “from what I can tell, media/Pentagon/politicians are not making the vital connection between Putin's hypersonic weapons and Obama-Clinton ‘reset’ project of Skolkovo, where Russia's hypersonic capabilities appear to have been born.”

Not even after they were informed in this plain, shocking language, from the Army, circa 2012 cited by Ms. West a year ago:

Skolkovo is an ambitious enterprise, aiming to promote technology transfer generally, by inbound direct investment, and occasionally, through selected acquisitions. As such, Skolkovo is arguably an overt alternative to clandestine industrial espionage—with the additional distinction that it can achieve such a transfer on a much larger scale and more efficiently.

Hillary Clinton, her State Department, the Clinton Foundation, and Bill Clinton, did much to make Skolkovo possible — did much to activate what was, according to the Army report, “arguably” a massive “clandestine industrial espionage” operation.

Not that any of this is in the past argued West. This plain-sight-“research”-cum-collusion with the Russian government goes on, and goes on unchecked — and despite the Obama administration’s supposedly hard-as-nails, cold-as-ice, tough-on-Russia finish and subsequent sanctions on Russia enacted by the Republican-controlled Congress in reaction to the alleged Russian election hacking and alleged Trump collusion hysteria.

The 2012 Army report cited by West continues:

Implicit in Russia’s development of Skolkovo is a critical question—a question that Russia may be asking itself—why bother spying on foreign companies and government laboratories if they will voluntarily hand over all the expertise Russia seeks? Since multinational institutions hire talent worldwide and seek access to foreign markets without regard for national interest, only the U.S. government would be in a position to persuade them to scale back their commitments in Skolkovo if U.S. relations with Russia continue to deteriorate. However, given the global dimensions of Skolkovo’s technology transfer program, it is not clear how much leverage U.S. industry has. Therefore, the key issue for U.S. policymakers is balancing the benefits of constructive technological engagement with Russia against the risks that Russia could leverage transferred scientific knowledge to modernize and strengthen its military.

A year ago, Ms. West observed that “Whether that is the key issue for U.S. policymakers, circa 2017, one thing seems clear. They haven’t heard of it, and they don’t care.” And nothing seems to have changed in the past 11 months, Washington’s policymakers haven’t heard of Skolkovo Russia’s largest and most ambitious technology espionage program, and they don’t care.

Coming on the heels of the confidential informant’s revelations about the Uranium One deal, Diana West’s prescient article revealing Hillary Clinton’s role in the hypersonic missile gap is more proof that establishment Washington’s hysteria over “Russian influence” on Donald Trump has nothing whatsoever to do with the security of the American people or the preservation of our constitutional republic.

To Many Traitors

It seems now that corruption has firmly been able to influence our low class greedy political leadership from the days of Clinton thru the Fraud Barry Sotero and now we are in a hell of a fix because political manipulation made it so...We are beset by treasonous acts of the past and non transparency...The Chinese hack us with cyber warfare as do the russkies but both are capable of buying our politicians who will sell us out in a heartbeat and experience no repercussion...I am not sure if there is a chance we can get back in the security and arms race but we had better do something or we will die trying.....
