• Those Damn Emails

    hillary clinton

    In they end, the emails mattered. How much they mattered — how many votes went to Trump, how many would be-Clinton supporters stayed home, how many voted third party — we’ll never know.

    Clinton supporters were surprised the emails mattered at all, because they had been fed a regular and often fully-factually wrong diet by the majority of the media. There was some good reporting on what the emails meant, and how classification works, but it was almost all on right-of-center websites Clinton people did not read, and blithely dismissed as biased when the sites were brought to their attention. And yeah, sometimes things got a bit too partisan in tone, but the facts were also there.

    After holding a security clearance for some 23 years, I tried, for some 18 months, to write as intelligently as I could about the damn emails. I tried to explain, in detail, what the whole thing meant, and that it was a significant problem for Clinton. Not bragging, just telling. If you’d like to read back through what I’ve had to say and judge yourself, here it is. There’s a lot there, so if you just want a taste, here.

    But I do want to make this as clear as possible, so…

    — All (not insignificant) questions of legality aside, the emails were about judgement, epically poor judgement. Clinton skirting/violating all rational thought and rules to set up a fully independent email server unprecedented in scope and scale, bypass federal records laws and the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act, and establish no oversight on the flow of classified information, is not the level of judgment a president must display. Yeah, I know, Trump, but this is about why Hillary Clinton emails mattered and whether anyone likes it or not Trump is the president-elect in part because of the emails.

    — The most basic tenant of the classified world is that you simply do not expose classified material on an unclassified system. That’s why classified systems exist. This is at the “duh” level. Opinions differ on what should be classified, over-classification is a big problem, yada yada, but those issues are not resolved by circumventing the classified world. To more than a few voters, that seemed obvious. It also again speaks to judgement. There were many experts who explained this, but it seems most Clinton supporters listed to John Oliver instead.

    — Nobody (the Republicans, the FBI, etc.) created any of the core mess except Hillary Clinton. She then seemingly took every chance to dig the hole deeper, shifting her explanations, allowing information to drip drip drip out over the length of the campaign, and all the rest until everything collapsed around the pathetic human wreckage of Anthony Weiner.

    — As an added problem, “the emails” in many voters’ minds became shorthand for a range of issues related to trust, ethics, and propriety, including the Clinton Foundation, pay-for-play, and the Goldman-Sachs speeches.

    — Clinton’s opponents inside and outside the government took advantage of the emails — kinda what opponents do — but none of that would have been possible if Clinton had not created all of this herself. Take this campaign, put up Sanders or Biden instead of Clinton, subtract out all of the negatives associated with the emails, and run a little thought experiment on how many votes that may have been worth.

      In Clintons own words.. WTF difference does it make now? Trump won. And with all due respect…regardless of the reasons. Historians will study this election for decades. But I agree Peter..you DID explain why it mattered..at the time. I read it at the time.
      But let me ask you something. In reality land, all your reasoning is exactly why certain voters came to the same conclusion.. and then did one of three things. Voted Trump. Voted Clinton regardless. Didn’t vote for either. So, what’s the difference? Had the entire voting public used YOUR logic, and realized..the law is the law…it still would have resulted in a Trump presidency. So..what is your point????? Btw, Sanders had his chance. He blew it by not going third party or even standing up to the corrupt DNC. Frankly, I think he pissed off his supporters who detested Clinton. So they went Trump. Same end. However, I still think Comey’s last letter helped sink Clinton.

      Unfortunately..now comes the reality. Now I know what people must have felt the day after Pearl Harbor.

      ps..This morning…like every morning since Trump was elected, I woke up with a knot in my stomach, fear in my heart, anger in my mind, and a desire to just fade away. I’m too old now to spend my last years in fear, just like I went through with Dubya. Thing is though, I’ve felt these feelings since 1957. That’s when I first discovered what I really stood for. During Little Rock. This is what I saw…


      I remember thinking ..”how in God’s name, could people, who call themselves “christians”, do this to people, just because their skin was darker” I remember the anger, the insidious Southern mindset, and the violence most of all. And NOW… Trump selects the most racist, scumbag maggot in Murika to lead the DOJ. This is why I have a knot in my stomach today. Lord help this nation.

      All I know though, is this nation has come too far and fought to hard, and too many people have died to let this motherfucker drag us back into the stone age.
      Yesterday, I mentioned Trump is in for a surprise during his inauguration. More so now that he’s selected Sessions. I came across a site yesterday, which I didn’t bookmark, where you could pledge to join in a protest in WDC, during Trumps inauguration. Over 100k people had already signed up. Frankly, I believe this will become a watershed moment in US history, as US law enforcement WILL use extreme prejudice to squelch this protest, which will result in blood flowing in the streets. Given the Surveillance State, I’m positive every single Gov law enforcement at their disposal is already planning for maximum enforcement. Make no mistake, given this protest is the division point between those who see what Trump stands for, and those who support him.. will turn into a blood bath. And from THERE..a possible bloody civil war v2. Only this time, the Confederates are the USG.

      bartender..two shots of 100prf FORTSUMPTER and a cold BloodyMary chaser.

      Hillary pre-emptively blocking any eventual FOIA scrutiny by going with her private servor was her downfall. Give her a revolver with one round and direct her to the Vince Foster estuary in Susan McDougal’s Bible camp. Bill will be free to marry Gennifer flowers. A happy ending-wouldn’t you say?

      Mitch, I think you should rethink the GOP We think identity. Every day some Trump minion will open his racist, sexist big mouth and destroy any pretense that they think at all. Jeff Sessions didnt think when he made his bigoted statement about Dominicans, did he? Hillary proved she was a dumb bitch who didnt have any feelings to stop her war witch thinking.

      Relax, and don’t sweat it.

      If things go sideways at/after the inauguration… Your in Michigan?… Head over toward Illinois… South of Chicago… You’ll be looking for some big white 4×4 trucks with white trailers.
      I presume you know what a “Rook” is? The doors have a Rook inside a templar shield in black.

      Its my brand and the insignia of my ranch. We’ll just bring you to Texas.

      I have a real good friend and his family near there, that we will be running up and getting.

      If you need, the offer is there.

      However, if there is a problem with Hispanics, true Muslims, blacks, etc… Or, women in power positions… Shut the hell up. :-p. You will find a lot of that here.

      So, that problem solved.

      I have seen the protests that are planned…. But…. The 100k is low. I have seen several groups that are planning to raise hell.

      Estimates are now somewhere around 5 million.

      But…. That is WAY secondary to December 19th.

      I’ve seen information showing where they are attempting to get the elect college vote to change.

      50 votes are a hell of a lot to get changed…. But…

      Mitch, the chances of changing the electoral vote are as likely as perverted pussy grabber Trump changing his ways. The country is better off with the war witch having to spend the rest of her life stuck with her pussy grabber husband.

      Remember what I said about prejudging???? About bigotry?????

      Yep…. It was you it was directed at.

      Several times I have said….. Hope for the best…. Prepare for the worst. BIGTIME prepare for the worst.

      Pretty simple.

      Jill would have been ideal…

      Killary….. Absolutely unacceptable. Crazy, evil bitch.

      Trump….. Maybe…. Maybe not. Who knows for sure yet.

      I see what I think is a pattern with Trump. A pattern that you refuse to even contemplate.

      I HOPE I’m right. I HOPE!!!

      If I’m wrong…. Pitchfork will be passing me ammo.

      Rich…. Stop being so wrapped up in what you want to read, pre-judging everything, and…. Everyone…

      And READ what is actually said.

      PS….. I’m actually a centrist…. Not the dumbass GOP…. Not the criminal DNC.

      Middle of the road.

      I look at what is best for everyone.

      Its called ” compromise “. And…. Its also called
      ” Democracy”

      Finding the best solution for everyone.

      In the united states…. It got siderailed because no one listened to what a founding father had to say,

      “. The republic and the democracy are only safe until the elected leadership learn that they can gain vast wealth and power, simply by casting their vote. ”

      Yep….. This is all about you.

      “Rep. Bobby Kaufmann plans to introduce the piece of legislation he’s calling the “Suck It Up, Buttercup Bill” when the legislature resumes in January.

      While issuing fines to those universities who want to pamper their students with child-like comfort, the bill would also establish new criminal charges for protesters who shut down highways, a circumstance that has risen out of the many anti-Trump protests that kicked off after the election.

      “I’ve seen four or five schools in other states that are establishing ‘cry zones’ where they’re staffed by state grief counselors and kids can come cry out their sensitivity to the election results,” said Iowa’s Bobby Kaufmann to the Des Moines Register. “I find this whole hysteria to be incredibly annoying. People have the right to be hysterical … on their own time.”

      Following the Donald Trump victory in the Nov. 8 election, schools such as Cornell and Yale went as far as setting up a “cry-in” and a “primal scream” so students could let out their grief and frustration over the results. ”

      You said, “You do, of course, realize….. Using LOGIC against a liberal mindset is a waste of time.”

      Huh. That’s a pretty sweeping statement and only serves the Democratic/Republican desire to pit the little people against each other so they won’t go after the fuckers who are actually fucking things up in this country and abroad.

      I am so “liberal” I am practically a socialist. Yet you have expressed admiration for my thinking and writing skills several times. Maybe it’s time to stop using the labels and the thoughtless slogans the PTB have so conveniently provided us for their own amusement so as to give cover for their war on humanness and humanity.

      We, the myriads of the average not-so-wealthy-and-famous around the planet, are held hostage to the politicians in our governments who design the conditions under which we live. Unfortunately, most – or all – of those politicians have no concern about our the condition of our lives, our commons, our livelihoods, or indeed about our very survival.

      They are blowing up the planet and find it fun. Clinton decided to pressure Obama into decimating Libya, and he went along with it, as did the leaders of most of our allied countries, for no reason. They did the same thing to Iraq and Afghanistan, and they are doing it to Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan. Millions of people erased from existence, just for the fucking hell of it. It’s their war and resource games. And they enjoy it. They have jiggered the system so as to guarantee that the biggest banks and largest corporations have more rights than we do, and so as to allow these entities the ability to strip us bare. Whether Trump or Clinton, we were going to continue to lose. These elites want it all. The politicians are making sure they get it all. The choice offered in this election (Trump v Clinton) simply lays bare that they are finally done with the sham and the pretense – they are going for the kill shot.

      Please don’t use some handy label, like “liberal”, or a stupid motto, like “they can’t think logically” and fall into the trap they’ve set of pitting us against each other.

      We are the hostages tossed around by the plutocracy. And they have decided it’s time to be done with it and just fucking shoot the hostages.

      Good to hear from you.

      So…… Can you give me a term that applies to these assholes that don’t give a crap about anyone or anything execpt the “god” called dollar?

      Can’t use alien from outerspace… Three of my employees used to be illegal. Til we got them citizenship. Sure don’t want to offend them.

      Can’t call them “Alien Space Bats”… S.M. Stirling would never forgive that.

      Can’t call them devils…. Not even close to a good discriptior.

      Can’t call them pigs…. Too many friends that are cops…. And….. We have a pet “razorback”… Complete with 10 inch tusks…. He’s right around 700lbs now…. He will turn down food to get petted…. We call him “Wilbur”…. Don’t want to disrespect him or the cops..

      Sure as hell can’t call them conservative..

      Can’t call them alternative thinkers…. Ummm…. That would be me….

      So…. Suggestions?????

      Soooo….. Geeeeeee…. Hmmmmmmmm……

      I wonder what someone or someone’s…. Might PLAN to use all of this stuff for????????

      Know of any big events coming up that the secret service is involved in??????

      ” Thousands of sensitive assets belonging to U.S. Secret Service agents, including firearms, computer laptops, work badges, telephones and even motor vehicles, have been lost during the past 15 years, according to documents obtained by nonprofit government watchdog Judicial Watch.

      “This is supposedly an elite law enforcement agency — how did all this equipment get stolen?” or lost. “This is alarming. Every American should be alarmed about this,” Judicial Watch’s Irene Garcia told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

      Secret Service agents reported 11,780 lost or stolen assets between fiscal years 2001 and 2016, according to the data Judicial Watch received, although the agency didn’t distinguish between lost and stolen items.

      A total of 121 “weapons/pistols” were lost or stolen from 2001 through 2016, including 69 in 2002 alone. The Secret Service also reported 736 cell phones, 571 badges and six vehicles as lost or stolen in that same period.

      But uncategorized or “all remaining” assets account for 4,644 of the 11,780 lost or stolen items. More assets were lost or stolen in fiscal year 2004 than any other year — 1,362, most of which were uncategorized.

      This new information suggests that sporadic news reports in recent years about the Secret Service agents losing cell phones and guns were snapshots of a larger problem. (STOLEN: Secret Service Agent’s Gun, Flash Drive, Radio, Handcuffs)

      “Honestly, it’s baffling,” Garcia said.

      The Secret Service took nearly a year to answer Judicial Watch’s December 2015 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for documentation on all assets reported missing since 2001. Judicial Watch made the request as a part of a larger investigation. ”

      In the old days…. Having a cleaning kit in the car, was evidence of conspiracy to commit murder.

      California has laws that prosecute for improper storage of a weapon… Owner is charged as if they pulled the trigger.

      Its just baffling to me…. This is the power of life and death….. And they have so little regard.

      Its just stupid. The SS has the two most important jobs in the federal government.
      Protection of elected officials… And protection of the currency.

      “Can you give me a term that applies to these assholes that don’t give a crap about anyone or anything execpt the “god” called dollar?”

      Well, Mitch,

      I don’t think “liberal” is the term for what you are describing. “Liberalism” is usually associated with concern over minorities and equal rights (although a lot of that seems like lip-service these days), a willingness to discard traditional ideas or values (“liberals” tend to be open to the idea of gay marriage, as an example), and the support of personal liberty which does NOT come at the expense of other groups (as opposed to “Libertarians”, who seem to support maximum personal liberty no matter who has to pay the price, as long as they get theirs; i.e., no regulations on banks and hedge funds, no laws about how hard you work your employees or how little you pay them, no laws about what shit you want to dump in the water, etc. ). Actually, maybe you’re confusing “liberal” with “libertarian”.

      I guess the best label for the money-worshippers would be “Ayn Rand capitalists”. Or “corporatists”, which is what all the 19th century capitalists turned into during the 20th century, when they discarded traditional capitalism. Or maybe “neoliberals”, who believe that it’s okay to impose austerity or war on anyone, or any country, as long as the banks can run their bullshit loan schemes and get their vig.

      Or call them grifters. They’ll run any scam to get the money out of your wallet and into theirs, they are always plotting the next con, their only friends are other greedy MF’ers like themselves, and after they eat dinner with these “friends”, they steal their buddy’s silverware on the way out the door.

      (Didn’t the Clintons have to pay the government back for the silverware they stole from the White House? I remember something about that. Common thieves. I’m sure they count the soup spoons after they have their own son-in-law over to dinner.)

      I think I will Need to go with “Grifter”…. Or…. Motherfuckers…

      I’m to deep into business to not be a capitalist…. And…. To make sure some greedy mother fucker who tries to sue me does not get much…. I have A LOT of corps.
      That’s a trick a lady a long time ago taught me about asset protection.

      You would be surprised to learn how many people want to sue homeless shelters.
      I have two…… Soon… Three weeks or so…. Eight.

      Corporations…. Allow that WHEN you ARE sued…. If you lose…. They only get the shelter…. Not your house… Cars… Horses.

      6 months or so ago…. Hospital discharged a patient…. He was dying.
      Cops dropped him off at the shelter… He died 20 minutes later.
      All of a sudden… He had hundreds of family members sueing us…. Screaming for our heads. Family members that had no contact with the man in 15 years.

      We won…. But…. What a pain in the ass.

      Btw…. Just as a reference…. The states… The Fed…. They do not want the homeless problems solved.

      Way to much money involved in it.

      Libertarian, on the surface… Media version… Very nice…. 1 inch down…. Bad, bad trouble.

      So…. I’m going to go with “motherfuckers”.

      And…. Killary and Billary…. Hell no they won’t have to return the 5.6 millon dollars of silverware they stole.

      Do you suppose it is insensitive for police to be issued pacifiers to throw to protesters?

      News Flash!!!

      Obama says, after Trump’s inauguration, as a common citizen, if he sees Trump is doing something he doesn’t like..he’ll COMMENT on it.



      Irony redefined.

      Dear ex Pres… And then what, schmuck? I suggest you keep your fucking mouth shut before the world finally arrests you and the rest of your goddamned co-conspiritors for your war crimes …you fucking halfwit.

      Of course, you can always post your comments here Mr. Dumbass. We’re all ears… no pun intended.

      I have a suggestion for Obama. And Trump.

      The last remnant of the Russian autocracy,
      Alexander III or, better known as Alexander Alexandrovich Romanov, left a memo for you. I suggest you fucking read it.

      Obama says he won’t pardon Snowden, ostensibly because he “can’t pardon someone who has not gone before a court yet”.

      Well, that’s not true, Mr. Constitutional Scholar, as you well know. You did just pardon 3 Iranian-Americans in January of this year who were charged with violating trade sanctions against Iran, and you did it before they stood trial in court. (That was part of a prisoner exchange side-deal that helped get the US-Iran nuclear deal inked.) But your silly excuse might prove a little embarrassing if you decide to issue Clinton a preemptive pardon for any and all lawbreaking before Trump takes office.

      Although I will always suspect part of Trump’s unexpected win and Clinton’s quick capitulation was a promise that Trump would leave Clinton alone.

      Before I say anything… Disclaimer.

      I agree with you. That mess in the Dakotas, is bullshit.

      So, that said…. See anything interesting in that article???

      Seems like there is A LOT of matching equipment… Matching gear… Matching Armour…. Etc there.

      Not to mention….. Just ONE sound cannon has a discount sticker price of almost 500K.
      I counted eight individual ones ..
      NYPD supposedly only has 4.

      Seems rather …. Significant…….considering that this is a RUAL area…. Most sheriff’s departments allow officers to equip as they choose…. Uniforms are the same…. Everything else…. Officer discretion.

      And….. Sure seems like a hell of cops…. In matching uniforms.. With identical equipment…. For a small …. Poor…. So poor…. That their website is barely functional(no money to pay for it)….sheriff’s department in the middle of no where.

      If other departments around the area have been brought in….. Nope…. Their uniforms will be different

      If they have been getting gear from the FED…. Nope… The amour they are wearing in law enforcement grade… Not milspec.

      And…. The milspec would not have the Matching patches.

      And….. Considering…. These are native American lands…..that would put it right back on your friend and mine….the FBI…..

      Which does have matching amour and equipment… Plenty of money for sound cannons ( btw… You ever see one up close… RUN… Those things are a bitch… Non-lethal, my ass).

      I’m thinking….. Bureau of Indian affairs and Obama are speaking with forked tongue.

      I thinking this is another Waco,Texas… Branch butchery. Going on….

      Request of some of the journalist types here.

      Please see if you have any contacts in the Dakotas that can get an up close picture of the patches on the law enforcement uniforms there, and forward them on .

      You’ll be trying to get the patch on the shoulder, and the chest (wear a badge would be).

      Should make an interesting story for someone.

      I just asked a friend of a friend, who knows a dog, who knows a cat.

      I was essentially told to “don’t ask”.

      Which…….. Makes me want to find out even more.

      But…. Whoever someone might get to take pictures…. Tell them to be careful. The cat was an old friend. He does not spook easy.

      Specifically… The all black / dark blue uniforms….

      Not the two tone tan and brown. ( I know who they are already).

      Just a gut feeling.
