The anti-Muhammad filmmaker – Nakoula Basseley Nakoula – currently sits in a federal prison in West Texas. So does another thorn in Hillary Clinton’s side. His name is Peter Paul. That two of Hillary’s most problematic individuals are locked up in the same federal prison is indeed worth a look, especially since Paul is serving a sentence that is longer than what the maximum sentence for his crime allows.
Before we look at the comparisons, have a look at the trailer of that documentary produced by Paul in 2007:
If there was a single individual who came out of the May 8th Benghazi hearings looking worse than anyone else, it was former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The number two man in Libya – before Ambassador Christopher Stevens was murdered – was Gregory Hicks. During his testimony, all signs pointed to the buck needing to stop at the very top of the State Department. Cheryl Mills, Hillary’s Chief of Staff, was named as a key player in what is to objective eyes, a cover-up.
Barack Obama doesn’t exactly have a reputation for telling the truth but when he referred to Nakoula Basseley Nakoula – the alleged man behind the anti-Muhammad video blamed for the 9/11/12 Benghazi attacks – as a ‘shadowy character’, Obama said something truthful. While the alleged filmmaker’s past associations should certainly raise more eyebrows than they currently do, Nakoula is seemingly being kept in the shadows by the administration.
In his article the Benghazi Patsy, Rich Lowry writes:
…Nakoula was brought in for questioning by five Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies at midnight, eventually arrested and held without bond, and finally thrown into jail for a year. He sits in La Tuna Federal Correctional Institution in Texas right now, even as the deceptive spin that blamed his video for the Benghazi attack looks more egregious by the day.
Other casualties in this war against one man, who simply wants justice, include his family, which consists of his wife Andrea and three children, one of whom is autistic. The years of imprisonment have not only taken a huge emotional toll but a financial one as well. Paul’s loved ones are left virtually destitute while he sits in the La Tuna Federal Correctional institution in Anthony, TX. – Unsung Davids, p. 27.
In short, in 2000, Paul was a Hollywood mogul and put on a star-studded gala for Bill and Hillary. For Bill, it was a farewell gala and for Hillary, it was a campaign fundraiser for her U.S. Senate run in New York. In exchange, Paul expected Bill to work for him and Stan Lee (of Marvel Comics fame) as a rainmaker for Paul’s company after Bill left office.
Unfortunately for Paul, once the gala was over, the Clintons reneged and he was discarded. Unfortunately for the Clintons (Hillary in particular), Paul would not go quietly. In 2007, while under house arrest, he put together a team that produced a documentary entitled, Hillary Uncensored. For nearly a decade, he dogged Hillary relentlessly. The trailer for his video – seen below – caught fire just as Hillary’s primary with Obama was heating up. In fact, in October of that year, the video was the number one viewed video on Google, garnering more than 50,000 views / day. Then, magically, on one Saturday in early November, it was no longer in Google’s top 100 videos.
When all was said and done, the trailer got more than 10 Million views before Hillary conceded defeat to Obama for the nomination.
In a more high-profile film about Hillary – which was at the heart of the Citizens United case – Paul made an appearance and was given a lie detector test, which he passed.
