Obama Decides US Public Can’t Handle the Truth

The Cyber-War on Wikileaks

screen-shot-2016-10-18-at-12-46-10-pm
Srećko Horvat & Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London – Sunshine Press Publications.

When the ruling class is in panic, their first reaction is to hide the panic.
They react out of cynicism: when their masks are revealed, instead of running around naked, they usually point the finger at the mask they wear. These days the whole world could witness a postmodern version of the infamous quote “Let them eat cake”, attributed to Marie-Antoinette, queen of France during the French Revolution.

As a reaction to WikiLeaks publishing his emails, John Pedestal, the man behind Hillary Clinton’s campaign, posted a photo of a dinner preparation, saying “I bet the lobster risotto is better than the food at the Ecuadorian Embassy”.

A similar version of vulgar cynicism emerged earlier this month when Hillary Clinton reacted to the claim that she reportedly wanted to “drone” WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange (“Can’t we just drone this guy?”) when she was the US Secretary of State. Instead of denying her comments, Clinton said that she doesn’t recall any such joke, “It would have been a joke if it had been said, but I don’t recall that”.

One doesn’t have to read between the lines to understand that if Hillary Clinton had said that, she would have considered it a joke. But when emperors joke, it usually has dire consequences for those who are the objects of their “humor.”

Cyber-war Not with Russia…but WikiLeaks

During the last few months I have visited Julian Assange in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London several times and each time I came out of the Embassy, where he is spending his fifth year in political asylum under legitimate fear he might be extradited to the US, my thought was the following one: although he lives, without his family, in a postmodern version of solitary confinement (even prisoners are allowed to walk for up to one hour a day), although he has no access to fresh air or sunlight for more than 2000 days, although the UK government recently denied him safe passage to a hospital for an MRI scan, if his access to the internet would be cut off this would be the most severe attack on his physical and mental freedom.

The last time I saw him, which was only two weeks ago, he expressed the fear that, because he had already published leaks concerning US elections and with more to come, the US might find various ways to silence him, including pressuring Ecuador or even shutting down the internet.

What seemed a distant possibility only two weeks ago, soon became a self-fulfilling prophecy.

When the Obama administration recently announced that it is, as John Biden said, planing an “unprecedented cyber covert action against Russia”, the first victim was not Putin, but precisely Julian Assange whose internet was cut off just a day after Biden’s self-contradictory proclamation.

No wonder Edward Snowden reacted immediately by saying that “nobody told Joen Biden what ‘covert operation’ means.

According to the U.S. Department of Defense’s Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms, a covert operation is “an operation that is so planned and executed as to conceal the identity of or permit plausible denial by the sponsor.”
It is no secret anymore that the Ecuadorian government has come under extreme pressure since Assange leaked the Democratic National Committee email database. We don’t know yet whether the US pressured Ecuador to shut down the internet, but it is clear that the present US government and the government to come is fighting a war with WikiLeaks which is all but “covert”. Is it really a coincidence that Julian Assange’s internet access was cut off shortly after publication of Clinton’s Goldman Sachs speeches?

If at the beginning we still had a “soft” version of postmodern McCarthyism, with Hillary calling everyone opposed to her campaign a Russian spy (not only Assange, but also Donald Trump and Jill Stein), then with Obama’s recent intervention it became more serious.

With Obama’s threat of a cyber-war, the “soft” McCarthyism didn’t only acquire geopolitical significance, but at the same time a new mask was revealed: Obama is obviously trying to cement the public debate and make the Russian threat “real”, or at least to use it as a weapon in order to help Clinton to get elected. Moreover, this new twist in something that has already become much more than only US elections (US elections are never only US elections!), shows not only how Obama is ready to strengthen Hillary’s campaign, but it also reveals that a cyber war is already in the making.

It is not a cyber war with Russia, but with WikiLeaks.
And it is not the first time.

What would Clausewitz say?

In 2010, when the Collateral Murder video was published, the Afghan and Iraq war logs were released, and we witnessed one of the most sinister attacks on freedom of speech in recent history. VISA, Mastercard, Diners, American Express and Paypal imposed a banking blockade on WikiLeaks, although WikiLeaks had not been charged with any crime at either state, federal or international level. So if the US government successfully convinced payment companies representing more than 97% of the global market to shut down an independent publisher, why wouldn’t they pressure Ecuador or any other state or company to cut off the internet?

The US is not only rhetorically trying to “get” Assange (it is worth to check out the Assassinate Assange video for evidence of the verbal masturbation of US officials), he poses a serious threat to the major elite factions in the US to remain in power. No wonder panic is rising in the US, which is now going even so far that a 16-year-old boy in Britain has been arrested on criminal charges related to the alleged hacking of email accounts used by CIA director John Brennan, which WikiLeaks published in October 2016.

What WikiLeaks obviously successfully challenged–and maybe one day (“history is written by the victors”, remember?) it will be learned in military strategy– is what the Prussian general and military theorist Carl von Clausewitz would call the “centre of gravity” (Schwerpunkt), which is the “central feature of the enemy’s power”.

Instead of speaking about the Russians, we should start speaking about the Schwerpunkt of the actual leaks, their real essence. Just take the following quotes by Hillary Clinton exposed by WikiLeaks, which reveal her true nature and the politics behind her campaign: “We are going to ring China with missile defense”, “I want to defend fracking” and climate change environmentalists “should get a life”, “you need both a public and a private position”, “my dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders”.

What WikiLeaks has shown is not only that Hillary is a hawkish war-monger, first it was Libya (over 1,700 of the 33,000 Clinton emails published by WikiLeaks reference Libya), then it was Syria (at a Goldman Sachs conference she explicitly stated she would like to intervene in Syria), tomorrow it will be another war.
It is now clear – and this is the real “centre of gravity” where we should focus our attention – that the future Clinton cabinet may already been filled with Wall Street people like Obama’s was. No wonder WikiLeaks revelations create utter panic not only in the Democratic Party itself but also the Obama administration.
One question remains, isn’t WikiLeaks, by leaking all these dirty secrets, influencing the US elections? Yes, it certainly is, but the current criticism misses its point: isn’t the very point of organizations such as WikiLeaks to publish the material they have and to influence public opinion?

The question should finally be turned around: isn’t the US mainstream media the one influencing the US elections? And isn’t Obama, by announcing a cyber-war with Russia, influencing the elections?

WikiLeaks is not only influencing the US elections, but transforming the US elections – as they should have been from the very beginning – into a global debate with serious geopolitical consequences at stake. What WikiLeaks is doing is revealing this brutal fight for power, but, as the old saying goes, “when a wise man points at the Moon, the idiot looks at the finger”. Instead of looking at the finger pointing to Russia, we should take a look at the leaks themselves.
If democracy and transparency means anything today, we should say: let them leak!

  2. President Barack Obama has criticised Donald Trump for sowing suspicion about the integrity of the US election, telling the Republican presidential nominee to "stop whining" and focus on winning votes.

    ...

    Earlier, Republicans seized the latest developments in Mrs Clinton email controversy as an issue that could help Mr Trump make up ground in the final presidential debate on Thursday (AEDT).

    That followed news that the State Department had asked FBI officials to lower the classification of a sensitive email related to the attack on the US compound in Benghazi, Libya.

    :o)

    Again with the MSM, Dougo? How can you talk about the MSM when you can’t even define it? I know. I’ve asked you and you refuse to answer.

    Yesterday, you put up this…

    In this case (not the first time) you merely repeated the MSM narrative.

    The thoughts I put up here regarding Trump are my own. They are based on what I’ve seen of him in this election, years of watching similar bullies and their tactics, what I remember of Psych 101 and 102, and a shitload of common sense. But, let’s face it, Trump just isn’t that hard to figure out. I don’t need the MSM (whoever they are) to help me form an opinion of him.

    When I get up in the morning, I feed the dog and then spend the next hour or so skimming through internet papers while I have coffee and breakfast and listen to CNBC in the background.

    On most days, I skim through the WaPo, the NYT, the Guardian (liberal), the Telegraph (conservative), the Detroit Free Press (liberal), the Detroit News (conservative), the Times of Israel, the JP, and Ynetnews. Then I check the Real Clear World and Real Clear Politics sites. The Real Clear sites carry articles from sources ranging from Al Monitor to the JP, from National Review to the Nation, from Der Spiegel to the Times of India.

    As you are likely aware, the Real Clear sites often will put multiple articles on the same subject from different sources. If the subject interests me I will read both articles so as to get some perspective on the various arguments.

    Usually, while I skim a lot of publications, I will end up reading 8-10 articles a day.

    As far as television news, I usually just watch it in passing, a couple of local station, CNN, NBC (Nightly News), and occasionally FOX, but only the news segments as I can’t stand most of the commentators.

      Yesterday, you made a comment about the ‘total blackout by the MSM on Wikileaks info.’ I can only assume you didn’t bother checking any of the sources I just mentioned (not really surprising) as the latest Hillary e-mail leaks where all over the news yesterday including the FBI/State Department e-mail reclassification story. Admittedly, Trump’s expansive claims that the election process is rigged against him was the lead story in most (can you blame them, it was a little bizarre), but that story was closely followed by the leaks stories.

      Regarding the comment about a total blackout on Wikileaks info, I can only assume you didn't bother checking any of these sources. And frankly that's not surprising. The latest Wikileak leaks were all over the news today (well, yesterday now). Admittedly, Trump's accusations about the rigged election was the lead story (can you blame them, it was a little bizarre), but that story was quickly followed by the leaks including the issue of the State Department guy talking to the FBI about classifications of Hillary's e-mail.

      Since you can’t seem to give me your definition of what the MSM is, I can only assume that it’s every publication, blog, or TV show not included in that small, esoteric, bundle of alt-rightblogs and conspiracy sites you bozos waste your time with, you know that echo chamber of right wing nuts, the ones you go to for your confirmation bias fix

      You nit pick.

      By yesterday, most of the latest batch of Hillary e-mail leaks were old news though I saw them mentioned on CNN and a couple other TV stations. However, both the WaPo and NYT carried the FBI e-mail story on the front page right below the Trump story saying the election was rigged.

      Regarding CNN, I told you I only watch TV in passing as background noise while I'm on the computer. But I remember that the Wikileaks stories were mentioned on a couple of their programs yesterday.

      But you mention a couple of the media sites I put up and ignore the rest or the fact that they run the gamut from liberal to conservative. Take the Real Clear sites for example. If you check them daily you will see articles from the JP to Le Monde, from the Weekly Standard to TomsDispatch, and from Commentary to Reuters.

      So what's you definition of the MSM. Are you saying there are any of these I shouldn't be reading?

    Gee Doug, you seem inordinately agitated by the fact that I don't join in the circle jerk you girls have going over Clinton and instead concentrate on Trump. What fun would it be to do otherwise?

    Right now, there is no one on this blog that has a single good word to say about Hillary, her campaign, or her party including Obama. You know what I think of her. I've said it enough. What's the point of me joining the echo chamber you guys have going right now? I'd be drowned out in the drone of the chorus. Besides I can always blast Hillary after she wins the election.

    Trump on the other hand is a different matter. It appears everyone here, with the exception of Ash, plans on voting for him no matter what excuses, justifications, or rationalizations you have to make to yourself so that you can sleep at night. I don't need the media to form an opinion of Trump. I had the opinion within a couple months of him having entered the race. You don't need a critical WaPo editorial or a USA endorsement of Hillary to recognize Trump for the boorish, bigoted, bully that he is. Besides, it's so much fun jerking your chain.

    Your problem is that you can't grasp the fact that someone can despise these two candidates equally albeit for different reasons.

    As for conspiracy theories, I believe in a lot of them; but face it, dirty tricks are the mother's milk of political campaigns and these two mothers deserve whatever gets thrown at them.

      If Trump weren't Trump the majority of Media wouldn't be as vigorously anti-Trump as they are.

      If Trump had been, or even played the part of, a normal human being he could have walked away with this election. Hillary has negatives up the ass. Her disapproval numbers are a disaster. Luckily, for her Trump's are worse. Why is that?

      Well it could be that he has insulted every group out there, every race, every nationality, the disabled, women, you name it. It could be because he is a bigot and a buffoon. It could be because he keeps changing his position on every issue there is. It could be because when he is not bullying he is whining. And don't get me started on the sexism.

      You talk about the media not spending enough time on the Wikileaks. Hell, Donald Trump doesn't spend any time talking about Wikileaks, or her 30 year record, or her lies, or any other issue that's important. He spends all his time addressing petty insults, calling out Hillary on her toilet issues, accusing her of being tired. You two nuts may find all that stuff fascinating, great yucks, but the public, already fed up with the shit they have to put up with, aren't amused, IMO.

      Any ordinary politician could have walked to victory over Hillary. There was a couple months there where new revelations about here were coming out daily. Trump was leading going into the debates. You can't blame the media for Trump making an ass of himself in the first debate. If he had bothered to prepare, to actually talk about some issues, he could have at least not lost the ground he did, but no.

      Had he made any kind of effort at all he could have been leading when the October surprise hit and weathered the storm, but no.

      Trump is not mentally or emotionally prepared for politics.

  17. Op-Ed To fight Trump, journalists have dispensed with objectivity

    My local newspaper, the Sonoma County Press-Democrat, is so clearly in the tank for Hillary Clinton that I no longer take pleasure in my morning read.

    Trump’s acceptance speech, for example, was covered on the front page with two stories: on the left a straight, albeit somewhat judgmental, account of the speech, and on the right a “fact check” that disputed every point made by the GOP nominee.

    Clinton’s speech was covered with three front page stories, with headlines describing her nomination as “historic,” “inspiring” and “trailblazing.” A relatively mild fact-checking piece was relegated to the back pages.

    This transparent bias is a national phenomenon, infecting both print and television media to such an extent that it has become almost impossible to separate coverage of the Trump campaign from attempts to tear it down.

    The media has long been accused of having a liberal slant, but in this cycle journalists seem to have cast themselves as defenders of the republic against what they see as a major threat, and in playing this role they’ve lost the ability to assess events rationally.

    Politico is not alone in what was once called red-baiting. The Atlantic also weighed in with Jeffrey Goldberg’s
    It’s Official: Hillary Clinton Is Running Against Vladimir Putin,” and a Franklin Foer story in Slate was headlined “The Real Winner of the RNC: Vladimir Putin.”
    This coverage smacks of the sort of McCarthyism that we haven’t seen in this country since the most frigid years of the Cold War.

    Any objective observer of the news media’s treatment of Trump can certainly conclude that reporters are taking a side in this election — and they don’t have to be wearing a button that says “I’m with her” for this to be readily apparent.

    5. Hillary is a criminal, Ash.

      Many well know criminals, historical and everyday, have not been convicted of anything.

      I give you many of the names in the Five Families of the Mafia for your simple consideration.

      Hillary has a ton of political influence, and, so far, has gotten away with it.

      Trump is correct when he says getting away with it, so far, is her only true 'accomplishment'.

      She (and Obama) has corrupted the State Department, the Justice Department, now the highest higher reaches of the FBI.

      With the Justice & FBI so much she even avoided a grand jury.

      If you are incapable of seeing a glimmer of this the problem is with you, Ash.

      Trump is no saint, but he's not even in Hillary's league when it comes to this stuff.

      The Clintons are, truly, world class scum, the very worst of the American people.

      You are an idiot, Ash, or willfully blind.

  25. The Hillary Virus
    Corrupting our government, one agency at a time.
    October 19, 2016 Michael Cutler

    There is no shortage of serious issues swirling around Hillary Clinton that call into question her judgment, her integrity and, ultimately, her fitness to be the next president of the United States.
    I have come to the conclusion that an excellent analog for Hillary would be a virus.
    The term “virus” has been defined thusly:

    virus |ˈvīrəs|
    noun
    1 an infective agent that typically consists of a nucleic acid molecule in a protein coat, is too small to be seen by light microscopy, and is able to multiply only within the living cells of a host: [ as modifier ] : a virus infection.
    • an infection or disease caused by a virus.
    • a harmful or corrupting influence: the virus of cruelty that is latent in all human beings.
    2 (also computer virus) a piece of code that is capable of copying itself and typically has a detrimental effect, such as corrupting the system or destroying data.

    As noted above, there are two basic forms of viruses, pathogens and computer viruses.  Hillary acts as both a pathogen and a computer virus. 

    Hillary, not unlike a parasitic virus, has for decades, lived off the “host,” in this case, the United States and those who engage in apparent “Play for pay” schemes, pay outrageously exorbitant honoraria and speakers fees or contribute to the Clinton Foundation.
      
    On February 13, 2014 the Clinton Foundation posted a press release, “Clinton Foundation And Gates Foundation Partner To Measure Global Progress For Women And Girls.”

    Bill Gates has been the prime force behind the effort to bring virtually unlimited quantity of foreign high tech workers into the United States through the H-1B visa program and by other means, to supplant hundreds of thousands of American workers.  The press release focused on “Women and girls” on the global level. 

    It is disconcerting that Hillary's spotlight was on women and girls around the world and not American citizens of both genders.

    1. This relationship between Hillary and the United States is not symbiotic but parasitic.  America and Americans have certainly not found any benefit in her actions but have suffered from it.
      In considering the analog of “Hillary the Computer Virus” we need only to review how this sort of virus is defined:

      “a piece of code that is capable of copying itself and typically has a detrimental effect, such as corrupting the system or destroying data.”

      Does that not neatly encapsulate Hillary's e-mail scandal and other issues?
      Not unlike a computer virus, Hillary has corrupted the State Department, the Justice Department, the FBI and divisions of the DHS that enforce and administer our immigration laws.  She has also sought to destroy data in the form of massive numbers of e-mails.  Her decision to destroy those e-mails and pulverize electronic devises with hammers is, to this retired federal agent, a coverup and provides evidence of intent and knowledge that her treatment of highly classified information represented malfeasance.

      Think of the drug dealer who flushes drugs down the toilet as law enforcement officers enter his house with a warrant, or the criminal who dumps guns, drugs or other contraband out of his car as police cars  chase him.

      Hillary's use of a private e-mail server and non-secure personal electronic devices were in apparent violation of two federal statues:

       Title 18 U.S. Code § 1924 - Unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or material:
      (a) Whoever, being an officer, employee, contractor, or consultant of the United States, and, by virtue of his office, employment, position, or contract, becomes possessed of documents or materials containing classified information of the United States, knowingly removes such documents or materials without authority and with the intent to retain such documents or materials at an unauthorized location shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both.
      (b) For purposes of this section, the provision of documents and materials to the Congress shall not constitute an offense under subsection (a).
      (c) In this section, the term “classified information of the United States” means information originated, owned, or possessed by the United States Government concerning the national defense or foreign relations of the United States that has been determined pursuant to law or Executive order to require protection against unauthorized disclosure in the interests of national security.
      Title 18 U.S. Code § 793 - Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information

      (f) Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, note, or information, relating to the national defense, (1) through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, or (2) having knowledge that the same has been illegally removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of its trust, or lost, or stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, and fails to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer—
      Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.
      The key phrase, through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody, is essentially what James Comey referenced when, on July 5, 2016 he presided over a news conference wherein he  read from a prepared statement in which, he stated she was “extremely careless” in handling highly sensitive material.  Yet he had recommended against indicting her.

      Dem Operative Who Oversaw Trump Rally Agitators Visited White House 342 Times


      Peter Hasson
      Reporter, Associate Editor


      11:38 PM 10/18/2016

      A key operative in a Democratic scheme to send agitators to cause unrest at Donald Trump’s rallies has visited the White House 342 times since 2009, White House records show.

      Robert Creamer, who acted as a middle man between the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee and “protesters” who tried — and succeeded — to provoke violence at Trump rallies met with President Obama 47 times, according to White House records. Creamer’s last visit was in June 2016.

      Maybe Rev. Cleaver told the truth – sort of.
      By Stu Tarlowe

      One of the most infamous slanders of the Tea Party may have claimed a victim, a member in good standing of the Congressional Black Caucus. The most recent revelations by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas have cast an old story in a new light for me.


      Ever since 2010, Missouri Congressman and former Mayor of Kansas City Rev. Emanuel Cleaver and those who share his political orientation and agenda have gotten a lot of mileage out of his claim that he was the object of racial epithets and was spat upon by persons attending a Tea Party rally in front of the Capitol in Washington, DC. They’ve used it to perpetuate the meme that the Tea Parties, and Republicans and Conservatives in general, are inherently racist.

      Having attended a number of Tea Party rallies myself, I’ve always found it extremely hard to believe that meme or Cleaver’s claims. I seriously doubt that any Tea Partiers would perpetrate or countenance such actions.

      Now, I’ve never been a particular fan of Cleaver, and I’ve even taken him to task, in these pages, for his activities as head of the Congressional Black Caucus, especially his cozying up to the Castro brothers in Cuba, despite their regime being one of the world’s most blatantly racist against blacks.


      But, while Rev. Cleaver and I have never officially met, on the two or three occasions when I’ve encountered him in public he’s always seemed a decent, friendly fellow, with a genuine-looking smile, in contrast to Hillary Clinton, who couldn’t manage a genuine-looking smile if her very life depended on it, and who seems to radiate negativity.  If Cleaver harbors any of the racial animosity that so many black “leaders” (and so many of their followers) seem to project, he manages to hide or disguise it. That made it disappointing to me that he would concoct and perpetuate what seemed such an obvious, baldfaced lie. It made him just another lying Democrat.

      But now that we’re getting, thanks to Project Veritas, a more complete picture of the cynical tactics employed for years by Democrat operatives, and just how very low they’ve been eager to stoop with their false flag ops and mini-Reichstag moments, I find it not-so-difficult to believe that Cleaver may not have been lying, but may have actually been spat upon, only by someone hired to impersonate a Tea Partier and thus cast Tea Partiers in a negative light (and with the intent that the press, eager to collude with the Dems, would fully exploit the story and perpetuate their “narrative”, something they’ve been doing for years, only now, thanks to exposés like O’Keefe’s, the public is beginning to wise up).

      We’re realizing that when Donald Trump complains that “the whole process is rigged”, he’s not only talking about voter fraud, but also about the way the news is managed and propaganda points are promulgated, and the pervasive corruption that makes it all possible.

      It makes me want to give Rev. Cleaver the benefit of the doubt.

    There is no doubt the Obama administration is thoroughly corrupt. The most corrupt? Hard to say. We have had some doozies.

    Lies, incompetence, lack of transparency, corruption, no accountability, heck, you'd need a thesaurus or a dictionary of negative terms to cover it all. Unfortunately, the public forgives a lot if they like a guy and Obama has a way about him.

    In tonight's debate, Trump should concentrate on issues such as the fact that Hillary will be a continuation of the Obama legacy. Not a good thing.

    What I suspect Trump will concentrate on is Hillary's looks and the crap her campaign bus dumped on the that Georgia Street.

    (Although, admittedly, the last does perfectly symbolize Hillary's hypocrisy on the environment and the fact that a Hillary presidency will result in her crapping all over America.)

      From the Wall Street Journal...

      [Gee, are they part of the MSM? Well, who knows, we'll just have to wait for Doug to get here.]

      Trump, Hillary, and the FBI

      Donald Trump probably is not helping his cause much with his conspiracy-mongering about a “rigged” election but Democrats should be thankful for small favors.

      Mr. Trump lacks message discipline. Instead of scattershot claims that the race is being manipulated, wild conspiracy theories about ballot box-stuffing, which both parties and Americans of decency and goodwill strongly refute, he might be focusing laser-like on the “rigged” argument that nobody can confidently refute.

      That’s the argument that Hillary Clinton is her party’s nominee and on her way to the White House only because the Obama administration decided to waive the law on handling classified material—and the FBI went along—in order to assure that its designated heiress would succeed to the presidency.


      Google says the question “is Trump trying to lose?” has skyrocketed in popularity in the last few days. Mr. Trump is perhaps willing to be president but hasn’t been willing to do what was necessary to win. He never seriously tried to expand beyond his core support. He never wanted to spend the money, especially on TV advertising, that would be needed to do so.

      If, in a deeper realism, he suspected that something like the Billy Bush tape was always going to stand in his way, he was rational to limit his financial risk—though he did the country no favor by accepting the nomination. In any case, Mr. Trump is now behaving as we knew he would. The appeal of “rigged” is obvious. It’s an argument that can continue to be prosecuted on-air after Election Day. Mr. Trump need not, as losing candidates do, concede defeat and disappear. His son-in-law, we’re told by the Financial Times this week, has already reached out to an investment banker about starting a Trump TV network after the election.

      America, you’ve been played.


      {...}

      Delete
    6. {...}

      If today’s Democratic campaign were being fought against a generic Republican without Mr. Trump’s distinct qualities and history, here’s what would dominate the news:

      Mrs. Clinton was verbally convicted by the FBI chief for mishandling classified information yet somehow not formally charged.

      Her aides were allowed to cut curious deals with FBI investigators that effectively swept under the rug any possible charges against them for obstruction or evidence tampering.

      Those same aides have been revealed, through email leaks, to have freely mixed public and private interests, including their own and Clinton private interests, in the performance of jobs that, in some cases, saw them receiving salaries from the Clinton Foundation or the Clinton family even as they also worked for the taxpayer at the State Department.

      The State Department itself, during Mrs. Clinton’s time as secretary, operated as an extension of the Clinton Foundation when it came to handling the requests and advancing the interests of important Clinton Foundation donors, some of which were foreign governments.

      The latest email leak, likely at the hands of Russian hackers, shows the State Department negotiating with the FBI over the classification status of Mrs. Clinton’s private emails in search of reducing her legal jeopardy.

      Here’s what we can expect after Election Day: Democrats will claim that a sweeping victory over Mr. Trump is a mandate for policies that were hardly talked about during a campaign focused on the shortcomings of Mr. Trump’s treatment of women. If Democrats don’t win the House, Mrs. Clinton will adopt President Obama’s strategy of aggressively using executive orders to expand Washington’s dominance of the private sector while painting Republicans as obstructionists.

      Those who reason that Mrs. Clinton and House Speaker Paul Ryan have histories and temperaments suited to cooperation and see hope for bipartisan progress will be disappointed. Why? Because of the steady drip of email leaks. Because of new information challenging the quality and objectivity of the FBI investigation.

      Mrs. Clinton, like Nixon in 1972, may not get a honeymoon no matter how big her win. The debate we aren’t having in the campaign, we will continue not to have: how to foster a modern state that doesn’t metastasize corruption, cronyism, elites helping themselves.

      There will be no bipartisan action on things that ail the American economy and hold back its growth. All of Washington will be enmeshed in a replay of the Watergate era, inward-looking, destructive, consumed with investigations and score-settling...

  34. A new email released as part 12 of the Podesta Wikileaks dump reveals that long term Clinton confidante Neera Tanden complained about Hillary not knowing what planet she was on.

    In the email, Tanden complains to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta after Hillary told an audience in Ohio, “You know, I get accused of being kind of moderate and center, I plead guilty.”

    “Why did she call herself a moderate?” asks Tanden.

    “I pushed her on this on Sunday night. She claims she didn’t remember saying it. Not sure I believe her,” responded Podesta.



    “I mean it makes my life more difficult after telling every reporter I know she’s actually progressive but that is really the smallest of issues. It worries me more that she doesn’t seem to know what planet we are all living in at the moment,” Tanden answered.

    Tanden is described by Politico as “a longtime Clinton confidante and influential policy-politics-communications adviser.”

    Whether the line is in reference to Hillary’s ailing health causing her memory lapses or merely her rapidly shifting political positions is not known – it could be both.

    Either way, the email emphasizes the Clinton’s campaign’s problem with Bernie Sanders supporters, and their attempts to re-mould Hillary as a more radical “progressive” to disguise the fact that she is an establishment insider.

  37. VIDEO: SATELLITE FEED CUT AS SOON AS CONGRESSMAN MENTIONS WIKILEAKS ON CNN

    During an appearance on CNN this morning, Congressman Chris Collins’ satellite feed was cut as soon as he began talking about Wikileaks.

    Host Chris Cuomo asked Collins what he thought Trump could do in tonight’s debate to prove he was fit for office. However, the Congressman went off script.

    “Two thirds of the public know that Hillary Clinton’s a liar, she can’t be trusted and now the two faces of Hillary are coming out – the fact through Wikileaks she says one thing and….”
    The feed is then immediately cut.

    Cuomo continued the discussion with pro-Hillary Congressman Hakeem Jeffries for a full two and a half minutes before Collins returned. Cuomo was sure to ask Collins a question that would steer him away from the subject of Wikileaks. Collins was only then allowed to speak for a brief time before the segment ended.

    The YouTube clip above also points out that it was CNN’s Chris Cuomo who stoked controversy earlier this week by implying that it was illegal for the public to read Wikileaks emails and that only the media should be allowed to do so.

    The US election funding process would make the most accomplished card counter insanely jealous. The most crooked card game in the country and the most unscrupulous casino operators are paragons of virtue compared to the three card Monty scam of US presidential elections.

    There are better odds of Christ returning by 2:01 Pm next Thursday on a Harley than either of the so-called third choices getting elected in the US system.

    The Illiterati here argues that the brain trust only helps Hillary and hurts Trump by voting third party. This is observably wrong and is illustrated by looking at the poll averages listed at certain sites like Real Clear Politics, Huffington Post, etc.

    RCP is the one most often quoted. Today, it's average of polls shows Clinton leading Trump by 6.5 percentage points. In a 4-way race, Clinton's lead over Trump drops to 6.2. Hillary would obviously prefer a 2-way race.

    The second part of the proposition is equally inane. Ignore the evidence of the polls, in a race where the biggest impediment to a candidate's success is himself, to claim not voting for him could actually hurt him is ludicrous. The only thing hurting Trump's campaign is Trump.

    The man ignores the advice of his advisers, he insults everyone and his brother, he is a bigoted buffoon, an overcompensating bully, he ignores the issues he should concentrate on and concentrates on the irrelevant, he changes his positions faster than a runway model changing clothes, he makes excuses for everything, he blames everyone for everything, the only one he never blames is himself, and now he offers us a month long whine like a 5 year old spoiled brat throwing a tantrum and screaming, 'Waaaaaa, nobody likes me." The man is nutz.

    1. The guy reeks of corruption.

      On March 11, 2004, Creamer, the executive director of the Illinois Public Action Fund, was indicted in federal court on 16 counts of bank fraud involving three alleged check-kiting schemes in the mid-1990s, leading several banks to experience shortfalls of at least $2.3 million.[4] In August 2005, Creamer pleaded guilty to one count of failure to collect withholding tax, and bank fraud for writing checks with insufficient funds. All of the money was repaid. Schakowsky was not accused of any wrongdoing.[5] Schakowsky served on the organization's board during the time the crimes occurred,[6] and Schakowsky signed the IRS filings along with her husband.[7] The U.S. district judge noted no one suffered "out of pocket losses," and Creamer acted not out of greed but in an effort to keep his community action group going without cutting programs, though Creamer paid his own $100,000 salary with fraudulently obtained funds.[8] On April 5, 2006, Creamer was sentenced to five months in prison and 11 months of house arrest.[9] Creamer served his five-month incarceration at the Federal Correction Institute in Terre Haute, Indiana and was released on November 3, 2006

    4. Wife Jan Schakowsky has had close ties to the Chicago Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and its predecessors since the 1970s. In early 1983 she wrote an article for the DSA publication Chicago Socialist.

      In 1986, DSA News twice identified her as a member of DSA. In May 2000, at Chicago DSA's annual Eugene Debs/Norman Thomas/Michael Harrington dinner banquet (named in honor of three prominent American socialists), Schakowsky was honored for her “work in Congress and the community.” Four years later she was the keynote speaker at the Debs/Thomas/Harrington dinner.

      Author Stanley Kurtz reports that in the late 1980s Schakowsky was “an influential official in the Midwest Academy network,” which was led by socialists.

  51. Laws are for the Little People
    - Mark Steyn

    As I've said for years - on radio, TV and in print - for me the overriding issue in American politics is the corruption. In the Obama era, we have seen the remorseless merging of the party and the state - in the IRS, in the Justice Department and elsewhere. Whatever one feels about, say, Scandinavia, they at least come to their statism and socialism more or less honestly. Not so the United States.

    It's bad enough that Democrats aren't agitated about this corruption - but then it works to their advantage. Slightly more mysterious is why so many of my friends on the right aren't incensed by it...

    As Jen Lawrence from Breitbart News reported early Wednesday, the White House is following the lead of he Democratic National Committee in trying to scurry away from Creamer despite hundreds of visits to the White House:

    Creamer issued a statement after the first two videos that he was “stepping back” from his “responsibilities working with the campaign.” Interim DNC Chairman Donna Brazile tried to put distance between the DNC and Democracy Partners in a statement by saying, “the practices described in the video by this temporary regional sub-contractor do not in any way comport with our long standing policies on organizing events.”

    A defiant James O’Keefe struck back at the White House, telling Breitbart News exclusively:

    ...

    The greatest question facing Europe is who, establishment or populace, will steer the continent’s future. The extent of Islamist political violence will likely decide this: a drumbeat of high-profile mass murders (such as in France since January 2015) tilts the field toward the people; its absence allows the establishment to remain in charge.

    Ironically, then, the actions of migrants will largely shape Europe’s destiny.

    ...

    Now a new twist in this saga. In a statement issued yesterday, Ecuador said it had cut off Assange’s Internet access, saying in part: “The government of Ecuador respects the principle of nonintervention in the internal affairs of other states.

    ...

    For more on this, I’m joined now from London by Raphael Satter of the Associated Press. He’s covered WikiLeaks extensively.

    Is there anything more to it than that statement by the Ecuadorian government?

    RAPHAEL SATTER, Associated Press: You know, it’s not much more — not much more official.

    There is an enormous amount of speculation about what’s going on behind the scenes. WikiLeaks alleges that, despite what the Ecuadorian government has said, they are, in fact, bound to pressure from the U.S. State Department, and, in particular, John Kerry, the secretary of state.

    ...

    HARI SREENIVASAN: The batches of e-mails have been trickling out for months, Hillary Clinton’s e-mails, John Podesta’s e-mails for weeks now. So, why now?

    ...

    RAPHAEL SATTER: It’s quite puzzling, actually.

    The timing is a bit of a mystery. And the best people to speak about this are the parties concerned themselves.

    ...

    HARI SREENIVASAN: Is this a sign that perhaps Julian Assange is overstaying his welcome?

    RAPHAEL SATTER: I think that people have speculated about how long Julian could stay at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London ever since he came in there.

    The Ecuadorians have themselves said that Assange is still welcome to stay as long as the reasons that he sought asylum remain the same. So, there — it doesn’t seem like he is going to get thrown out any time soon.

      Every several years, a weather pattern is established in the Pacific that brings an unusual number of storms to the Micronesia region, he said.

      One example of such pattern occurred in 1992. That year, Guam got five major storms in one season, including destructive Typhoons Omar and Brian, and Supertyphoon Gay, leaving residents wondering what precisely they had done to deserve the wrath of the weather gods.very several years, a weather pattern is established in the Pacific that brings an unusual number of storms to the Micronesia region, he said.
