Alas we hear from Hillary Clinton. If Trump and his Liars had won, then my prophecies would not have come true.

EXCLUSIVE: HiddenLight Productions, the new production company founded by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Sam Branson and Chelsea Clinton, has acquired the series adaptation rights to best-selling author Gayle Tzemach Lemmon’s The Daughters of Kobani: A Story of Rebellion, Courage, and Justice.
Given Lemmon’s track record going with best-selling books being adapted into feature films, the bidding war was quite competitive with several bidders before HiddenLight emerged the victor. For the Clintons, the property feels like the perfect IP to help launch their banner given the subject matter and strong women that helped Lemmon write it.More from Deadline

“The Daughters of Kobani is an extraordinary account of brave, defiant women fighting for justice and equality,” Rodham Clinton said. “We created HiddenLight to celebrate heroes — sung and unsung alike — whose courage is too often overlooked, and we could not be more thrilled to bring this inspiring story to viewers around the world.”
Drawing upon hundreds of hours of interviews and on-the-ground reporting, The Daughters of Kobani is the unforgettable story an all-women Kurdish militia who took on ISIS in Northern Syria – and won. From that unlikely showdown emerged a fighting force intent not only on defeating ISIS on the battlefield, but on spreading their own political vision and establishing gender equality in their corner of the Middle East and beyond. In the process, they earned the respect—and significant military support—of U.S. Special Operations Forces. The book will be published by Penguin Press on February 16th.
“No one has fought harder than Sec. Clinton to lift the voices of women around the world and to shine light on the lives of women fighting each day for their futures,” Lemmon said. She is a true trailblazer, and there is no better partner to bring The Daughters of Kobani and this story of the women who broke ISIS to the screen than HiddenLight.”
Launched in December last year, HiddenLight Productions is a global studio that will create premium documentary, unscripted and scripted entertainment for TV, film and digital that celebrates the best of the human spirit and helps audiences see the world in new ways.
HiddenLight’s first project, Gutsy Women, is a straight-to-series order for Apple TV+ inspired by their best-selling book, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience. Hosted by Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, Gutsy Women will spotlight a richly diverse cast of trailblazing women setting out on a quest to answer the question: ‘what exactly does it take to be a Gutsy Woman?’
Led by Executive Chair, Roma Khanna, and CEO, Johnny Webb, HiddenLight is based in London, New York and LA.
Lemmon’s two previous books The Dressmaker of Khair Khana (2011) and Ashley’s War: The Untold Story of a Team of Women Soldiers on the Special Ops Battlefield (2015) were both Times bestsellers, the latter of which Reese Witherspoon optioned in a bidding war and is producing for Universal with Lesli Linka Glatter (Homeland) directing.
She serves as an adjunct senior fellow for the Council on Foreign Relations, along with private sector leadership roles in technology and national security, began writing about entrepreneurship in conflict and post-conflict zones while studying for her MBA at Harvard following a decade covering politics at the ABC News Political Unit and This Week with George Stephanopoulos. This work from Afghanistan, Rwanda, Liberia, Bosnia, and beyond has been published by the World Bank, Harvard Business School, The Financial Times, the Harvard Business Review and CNN, among others. Following MBA study, Lemmon led public policy analysis during the global financial crisis at the global investment firm PIMCO.
Lemmon is represented by Anonymous Content and HiddenLight by WME.
I am a prophet, and a angel.
Here is my prophetic post made March 6, 2015. I did not know Henry Buck had an office in Eugene Oregon. The money Henry made cutting down our trees, gave birth to all the Buck Foundations. Rubar Sandi became a member of the board of directors of the Buck Institute two years ago. I was a member of several Kurdish facebook group were I contributed my religious-atheist knowledge in forming a Kurdish State. In my book, you can take God-Allah, or leave Him. Most religion is obtuse history about THE PROPHETS. It stands to reason if we are living in THE AGE OF THE PROPHET, then it is not just a history lesson.
I have been into play-acting since I can remember. I am a Magical Being. Prophets are playful. Sometimes we are deadly serious. Above is a photo of me with the cremated remains of my homeless friend I adopted because we could not find his family. I paid for his funeral as his Go-el Redeemer. I put Hollis Williams ashes in the woods up the McKenzie where Frank Buck’s men fell great trees – our Ents! That is the McKenzie River over my shoulder.
It is time the Kurds read my book. I will not be silenced again. The Magic will no longer be torn from my being by ‘The Lovers of Money’. The Rose Tapestry is being woven. It will cover the World in roses!
I will send this post to Rubar Sandi. The Kurdish People are homeless.

This morning I awoke with the idea of Eugene Oregon becoming the sister city of Kobane. The connections I made with Meher Baba and the Kurds has put me in a unique position. I have made Kurdish friends. I must act, because I and these friends are caught in a no man’s land, being, we are people of peace, but, we have been chosen to fight the people of darkness and violence. Women, sisters, are at the vanguard of this battle that the enemy wants to be the battle of Armageddon. But, I see peace arriving with each victory that brings one closer to the lightThis morning I found a video showing the distaffs of the Kurdish women. The women fighters are seen behind the colorful threads. The Rosamond cote of arms depicts a distaff that looks like a cross. This is emblem the Rosamond/Rougemont Knights Templar wore on their tunic when they went on crusade. You can see this distaff with two camels outside a Templar church. I have proven the Rougemont Templars owned the Shroud of Turin the most famous piece of cloth in the world. The Rosamond family descend from weavers.
According to institute insiders who requested anonymity, some faculty members expressed unease about a few of the associations made during this period.
Two men added to the institute’s board of trustees in particular raised concerns: Fouad Makhzoumi, a Lebanese native and CEO of Future Group, who joined the board in 2014; and Rubar Sandi, chairman of the Sandi Group, who joined the board in 2015. Sandi is an Iraqi from a wealthy Kurdish family who immigrated to the United States in the late 1970s.
The Sandi Group’s work with Texas-based DynCorp has been investigated by the special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction, according to David Phinney, a Washington, D.C.-based freelance reporter whose work includes a series on contractors and private military companies working in Iraq.
PREFACE: I just got off the phone with Safia of the Buck Foundation. I basically told her I own a jewel encrusted glass slipper, and, was wondering if there are any feet to put it on. I commented on the irony of her name, and, she had an accent. I asked if she saw the movie ‘The DaVinci Code’. She had. I told her the architect, Pei, designed the pyramid over the Louvre, and there is a prophecy going on. I told her the Knights Templar were in one of my proposals. Here is Rubar Sandi’s main business.
“Rubar Sandi, a Kurdish American, who was forced to flee Iraq after Saddam killed members of Rubar’s family, was one of the first back into Iraq after the invasion took place. In the thirty years, or so since Rubar came to America, he became a U.S. citizen and seized the American dream. Rubar became very successful through his own hard work, ingenuity, faith and willingness to stand on certain principles of personal integrity, honesty, loyalty to his friends and sheer determination. Rubar has experienced the American dream we all seek, but he never forgot his Kurdish home in Iraq, or the friends and family he left behind in the Northern area of Iraq known as Kurdistan. ”
For a year I have been tempted to found a Templar Order. With the egregious trespass by Benjamin Netanyahu, instigated by alleged Christians who want to go on another Crusade, I envision a Templar order of women only. These women will always keep their eye on the prize, which is the return of peace, where the gun is laid down, and the distaff put to use again, to clothe ‘The Woman of the World’ in a garden of red roses.
I went back to sleep and had a dream I was an elder speaking to young people about being able to see into the future. I just got off the phone with a woman member of the Nez Perce Tribe. I asked if her tribe recognizes the plight of other peoples and she said they have so many problems. Chief White Bird was a Dreamer/Prophet.
Then I found the MLKP who have ties to the movie ‘Pan’s Labyrinth.

The MLKP has also declared its intention to form a leftist international brigade within the YPG, modelled after the famous International Brigades who fought on the side of the Second Spanish Republic in the Spanish Civil War.[28
