In Hacked Fundraiser Recording, Hillary Mocks Bernie Supporters "Living In Their Parents’ Basement"

Tyler Durden's picture

The reason why the Trump campaign has been so eager to find transcripts and recordings of the private speeches Hillary Clinton has delivered during her extensive, lucrative speaking career, is because it is there that she reveals that rare glimpse into what she truly thinks, or at least what $250,000 per hour will get her to believe. One such example is a recently hacked recording of Hillary Clinton, where in a private conversation with campaign donors in February, Clinton distanced herself from progressive goals like “free college, free healthcare” and described her place on the political spectrum as spanning from the center-left to the center-right.

The newly disclosed comments first noticed by the Intercept, came in audio from hacked emails revealed this week by the Washington Free Beacon. Clinton was speaking at a Virginia fundraiser hosted by Beatrice Welters, the former U.S. ambassador to Trinidad and Tobago, and her husband Anthony Welters, the executive chairman of an investment consulting firm founded by former Clinton aid Cheryl Mills.

The hacked audio provides another peek into the ideological chameleon that Hillary is on a day to day basis. As the Intercept notes, "Clinton has been inconsistent in the past about espousing political labels. She has at times touted herself as stalwart liberal. For instance, she said last July: “I take a backseat to no one when you look at my record in standing up and fighting for progressive values.” But a few months later, she told a group in Ohio: “You know, I get accused of being kind of moderate and center. I plead guilty.”

In one segment of the leaked audio, Hillary focused on her opponent at the time, Bernie Sanders, was pointed to successful programs in Scandinavia which provide universal daycare, family leave, and government sponsored healthcare and college education, as policies that he would seek to adopt. "Progressive" Hillary mocked the compared idea of "free college, free healthcare" to the "extreme" ideas promulgated by the right, which include "populism, nationalism and xenophobia."

It is important to recognize what’s going on in this election. Everybody who’s ever been in an election that I’m aware of is quite bewildered because there is a strain of, on the one hand, the kind of populist, nationalist, xenophobic, discriminatory kind of approach that we hear too much of from the Republican candidates. And on the other side, there’s just a deep desire to believe that we can have free college, free healthcare, that what we’ve done hasn’t gone far enough, and that we just need to, you know,  go as far as, you know, Scandinavia, whatever that means, and half the people don’t know what that means, but it’s something that they deeply feel. So as a friend of mine said the other day, I am occupying from the center-left to the center-right. And I don’t have much company there. Because it is difficult when you’re running to be president, and you understand how hard the job is —  I don’t want to overpromise. I don’t want to tell people things that I know we cannot do.

Recording below::


Clinton then went on to explain why she felt so many Democratic voters, many of whom "live in their parents' basement" were gravitating to Sanders. Ironically, for a presidential candidate that touts the economic recovery the US is going through, she admits these "children of the Great Recession" don't see much of a future...

Some are new to politics completely. They’re children of the Great Recession. And they are living in their parents’ basement. They feel they got their education and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves. And they don’t see much of a future.

... and with an entire generation unexpectedly finding itself in a dead-end economy, it provides a perfect incubator for what according to Hillary is an army of Bernie supporters: "if you’re feeling like you’re consigned to, you know, being a barista... then the idea that maybe, just maybe, you could be part of a political revolution is pretty appealing."

I met with a group of young black millennials today and you know one of the young women said, “You know, none of us feel that we have the job that we should have gotten out of college. And we don’t believe the job market is going to give us much of a chance.” So that is a mindset that is really affecting their politics. And so if you’re feeling like you’re consigned to, you know, being a barista, or you know, some other job that doesn’t pay a lot, and doesn’t have some other ladder of opportunity attached to it, then the idea that maybe, just maybe, you could be part of a political revolution is pretty appealing

One wonders whose fault it is that millions of young people are stuck in dead end jobs, living in their parents basement, while both Obama and Hillary make TV appearances touting the strength of the economic recovery.

But the punchline was what Hillary, who has been scrambling to secure the much-needed Millennial vote in recent weeks, truly thought about about the millions of young people whose vote she is trying to win: a diatribe of mockery, in which she describes the concept of a political revolution as a "false promise" which has attracted all these disillusioned and disheartened young people "living in their parents' basement." Does Hillary have anything to offer them? No, but she desperately needs their vote, even if behind the scenes at generously paid private functions, she mocks them in front of all those present.

We should all be really understanding of that and should try to do the best we can not to be, you know, a wet blanket on idealism. We want people to be idealistic. We want them to set big goals... But those of us who understand this, who've worked in it know that it's a false promise. But I don't think you tell idealistic people, particularly young people that they've bought into a false promise.

Especially when you are trying to secure their votes?

Then again, considering the eagerness with which Bernie Sanders has endorsed Wall Street's favorite candidate, it is quite clear that the real "false promise" here was Sanders' "revolution" all along.  We wonder if in light of this hack, if Bernie Sanders would care to make some statement why he is endosing the candidate who behind closed doors, openly mocks everything that his supporters believe in.

Clinton has been accused numerous times in the past of patronizing young Sanders supporters. On Meet The Press in April, Clinton said she said “I feel sorry sometimes for the young people” who believe Sanders’s claims about her taking money from the fossil fuel industry.

During her remarks, she reiterated her belief that politics is the art of the possible, dismissing the more aspirational approach of Sanders and his supporters. “I want to be very clear about the progress I think we can make,” she said. There was no discussion of her view that the ideology of millions of progressive, young people is a false promise.

And while America's young voters will be given an opportunity to respond to Hillary in just over 5 weeks time, one wonders what, in a world where Donald Trump's every word is brutally attacked by the pro-Clinton media. would emerge if even a handful of Hillary's Wall Street speech transcripts were the finally emerge.

Post Debate Plot by David Brock owner of Media Matters

September 27, 2016
Max Insider

Correct the Record is a Hillary-campaign super-pac that is dedicated to "fighting the lies" on the Internet. What it is, is a battalion of paid trolls whose job it is to disrupt, demoralize, and defame any Trump supporters and message boards. They communicate using a secure messaging software called "slack" pictured above.
We were able to get some monitoring software onto a junior analyst's laptop to take a look inside the slack-channel where they were doing work. What we found was startling. In the fall-out from last night's debate, they are beginning a new campaign of targeted harassment (or worse) against the "ring leaders" of the decentralized online Trump movement.
Without a traditional campaign infrastructure to target, it appears they have been reduced to going after the "most influential voices" in the online debate. What exactly this means, we're not sure (the comment at the end of the conversation wasn't good though). Below are the screen shots and the full transcript of today's conversation.

brock [5:56 AM]
i can't talk. very hush hush. still, we've lost every online poll and we need to get tough here. get this under control.
still, i hope we put the sick thing to bed.
i hope.

ekim [6:01 AM]
but those don't mean anything
efink [6:01 AM]
it means they're enthusiastic. organized. if they can swarm a poll whats to stop them swarming a voting booth?
it also creates a counter-nar. the free press will sniff it. we have to stop the bleeding.
ekim [6:01 AM]
efink [6:02 AM]
don't worry. we have something. GET SHAW OUT OF BED.
i'm going for coffee.
cshaw [6:05 AM]

Not at all.
cshaw [6:06 AM]
I read the round-up. It looked good?
brock [6:07 AM]

cshaw [6:10 AM]
ekim [6:10 AM]

efink [6:11 AM]
alright. we need to move beyond the disruption scripts and down-voting. we need to start hurting people and that's what this is about. This is about winning because we'll never get a chance at this again. everything is justified. David?
brock [6:11 AM]
fuck--okay. so the Trump team is an emergent order. thirty million little chan and reddit assholes that bump around and then congeal to vote in a poll or push a meme or make a hashtag trend or whatever. This is new. It isn't like fighting a centrally organized campaign.
It's more like fighting a disease.
So what we need to do is break the pattern. The usual means isn't working. Trump's too charismatic. Morale is too high. This is an army of chaos folks.
so we have full clearance. Word of God.
Fink--let's do this. I have a plane to catch.

i like it! wtf is it??
efink [6:17 AM]
This is manna from heaven, kids.
We have the use of an NSA intrusion package. We are going to find the thought leaders. the meme-generators. the shit-posters. I need a target analysis for reddit, twitter, and the chans by tomorrow 5 PM.
You will monitor, identify, and using the FA software set we have, identify/dox.
cshaw [6:18 AM]
that will dox them??
efink [6:20 AM]
It will man-on-the-side for the anon boards and intercept traffic. We can use that for IP addresses and loading tracking software and magic lantern onto their devices. Once we have them compromised
David? How many do we need?
brock [6:21 AM]
I want 150 from 4chan, whatever you can get from 8. I want 1000 top reddit drivers exposed and I want content analysis for their posts. I want the people who are really driving their narrative.
I need all that in a packet by tomorrow afternoon with lexical analysis, proof of compromise. I want clips of memes. I want to up-vote patterns. All this has to be inside the US too. We can't use externals.
cshaw [6:23 AM]
It won't work outside the US?
efink [6:23 AM]
It works fine outside the us you idiot. That's NSA stuff.
brock [6:24 AM]
WE don't work outside the US. Do you think this is fucking bean-bag?
We are going to disrupt them before this shit goes any further.
if they don't have leaders, we're going to get their thought leaders.

 cshaw [6:24 AM]

What a bunch of whiners the millennialist are. That generation and the ones that follow have been coddled to the point of absurdity. All of them need a good ol fashioned can of 'attitude whoop ass' opened. on them right in the middle of their safe spaces. Yeah, I have a trigger warning for you my little snowflakes ... Life is hard ... REAL FUCKING HARD. You can never appreciate success until you have had a few good sized portions of failure. So suck it up, persevere, and pretty soon what you have wont be looking so bad because you will have earned it.

I weep for our country.

TRUMP 2016!

CheapBastard's picture

Crooked Hillary is 180 degress opposite of Bernie Sanders.

She wants more wars, more bloodshed, more Wall Street bailouts, and so on.

There is no way Bernie voters can live with themselves if they vote for Crooked Hillary, especially the way the DNC lead by Wasserman and Brazille cheated Bernie in the primaries.

The closest thing to Bernie is Jill Stein followed by Trump.

I will advise Trump to ignore Dems bashing about this fat women statement. Fat women is a non-issue. Job creation, soaring crime, 24/7 bombing the middle east, Hillary's corruption, Hillary's poor health, etc...these are the issues.

This is unprecidented EVIL of a KIND only possible when people are under DEMONIC control. 

I know many people may not believe in the Bible, but their are a set of passages found in Galations that describe the behavior we hear from the recording. I have listed them below.

[Gal 5:19-21 NKJV] 19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told [you] in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

In addition, John 8:44 is a passage that is worth noting as well for someone under DEMONIC control.

[Jhn 8:44 NKJV] 44 "You are of [your] father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own [resources], for he is a liar and the father of it.

While we have all fallen short of the Glory of GOD, what we are seeing from the DEMOCRATS is only possible from despots with reprobate minds.

Truly sad day for America and her freedom loving people.

Your BLIND, STUBBORN, AND LOYAL attempt to paint Trump as something acceptable is wearing a bit thin.  Your WEAK ATTACKS on Hillary show desperation and grasping for anything.  Lame. 

Is Hillary perfect, hell no.  Is she under the manipulation of oligarchs?  Of course.

Is Trump an Oligarch Himslf?  HELL YES!!!!  

The words of man who has declared bankruptcy half a dozen times, been sued countless times, who's NET WORTH IS BASED ON EMOTIONS, and who has done so little for anyone else on this planet, is not someone we can trust.  


2016 is looking like when zerohedge lost its vision, its prescience, its resolve, its values, its soul, and unfortunately maybe its relevence.   


Blankenstein's picture

Speaking of hypocrits, you're throwing mud at Trump while ignoring the treasonous crimes of Clinton.   It was even stated that the email scandal is a cover for the even larger crime of the Clinton Foundation pay-for-play fraud.


"Like Markopolos, Ortel has an impressive resume. Ortel’s LinkedIn profile shows that he received his B.A. from Yale and an MBA from Harvard Business School.  He previously worked as a Managing Director at investment bank Dillon Read and later as a Managing Director at the financial research firm, Newport Value Partners."

"Ortel calls the Clintons’ charity the “largest unprosecuted charity fraud ever attempted,” adding for good measure that the Clinton Foundation is part of an “international charity fraud network whose entire cumulative scale (counting inflows and outflows) approaches and may even exceed $100 billion, measured from 1997 forward.” Ortel lists 40 potential areas of fraud or wrongdoing that he plans to expose over the coming days."

balolalo ... WOW ... trash talk ain't cutting it in this site. Also, it is bad for your blood pressure.

Take care and calm down.

balolalo's picture

This is not trash talking.  This is a bullshit article about a bullshit issue.  All she did was acknowledge the same shit ZH talks about.  Millenials in the basement.  But now it is "Mocking", because SHE said it.    If the TYLERS are going to hit Hillary, hit her with something real, relevant.

This is a weak article about a weak non-issue which shows how desperate they are for TRUMP. 

BUT ON THE FLIP SIDE, the TYLERS don't say shit about the manic OLIGARCH TRUMP they are pushing.   Never any real crticisms.  Concerns.  Doubts.   Nothing.   




crazzziecanuck's picture

I agree.  This is the same sort distortions oppoents are using as they recently tried to do with Trump's rather non-commital position on the Iraq War.

What HRC says is actually true.  The problem we should be making for her revolves around the obvious fact that the misery that is driving all this is her fault and the people she surrounds herself with and gleefully accepts money from.  She was the lever that made people rich from the misery of others.  

The sad part is if she's pushed out in disgrace there's 500 behind her willing to take her place.  I suspect she knows this and why she's trying to downplay this idea of "poltical revolution."  People have argued that the working classes should now be referred to as the precariat.  The true precariat is the dozens of people who believe they have all this phantom wealth that exists only because they control the political system.  Take that away from them and they lose it all...

Wake the fuck up, this is a Clinton mafia- 30 years of corruption coming to fruition....

Likely? Well, then, this is far better than Hillary. With her, WW3 is guaranteed. If she's elected, enjoy what time you and your loved ones have left, because come election day on November 3, 2020, it will be too late. There will be no elections or voting on a lifeless cinder orbiting an average and unremarkable star.

Is it just me, or is the boss figure in this chat script (efink) basically gloating that the NSA is already in league with the hacker team? Not just on the Seth Rich oblique threat, but on the cyber front oustide the U.S.?

As in, the NSA is and has been in Hillary's pocket?

Reality check, please. I shouldn't be surprised if it's true... given her endless smugness about "the bad stuff will never happen to me," but... if I'm reading this correctly, I can't help being somewhat shocked.

BarkingCat's picture

I think you have tgat in reverse. It is Hilary who is in the NSA pocket.

They have all her compromising emails. She will dance whatever tune they want her to dance.

She does not care. She just wants to have her skim of the wealth of the entire world.

GreatUncle's picture

What this suggests is after Trump loses the election the NSA is going to victimise 30 million Trump supporters.

Why? This is just one election, the economy struggling to support minimum wage jobs more are going to realise they were conned by Clinton.

The war never ends now unless you can achieve a balanced economic position for a large number of people and not going to happen.

This is like the skirmish, entitled establishment against the population, the main battle is yet to come.
