Bull from Brazile

Now that the dust has settled on the 2016 US Presidential Election, and President Hillary Clinton is well ensconced in the White House …. Hang on. That didn’t happen. Secretary Clinton lost and Mr Trump won to become President Trump.

In any competition, there will be losers and sometimes sore losers, but the efforts of the Clintons and their acolytes just take the cake.

Now as Cats know, Spartacus is not a fan of President Donald J. But what Spartacus dislikes even more is the attempt by the losers to try to re-write and re-frame history to hide their incompetence and failures. If they want therapy, they should see a therapist.

In the latest contribution to the Clinton wuz Robbed narrative, former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair, Donna Brazile has come out with a book called Hacks.

With a title like that, one might be excused in thinking it was a book about the hacks who worked for and around Team Clinton.  Rather, Ms Brazile continues with the story that the Russians did it. They hacked into both the Democratic Party and the Clinton Campaign, stole data and emails and then released embarrassing information. Those evil Russians.

Let’s just pause for a second here and just assume for the moment that agents of the Russian state actually did what is claimed.  Is there any dispute that what was released in the emails was incorrect? Were there any “fake” emails?  No.  So what is the problem then?

Is the complaint that while Secretary Clinton, her staff and her campaign did bad things, nobody was mean to know about it? And that keeping bad conduct hidden nullifies its vice?  If team Clinton had a problem with what was released, perhaps they should first reflect upon what they put into email.

But from another perspective, Secretary Clinton’s emails have been a sore point for a while.  What does it say about the recklessness of Team Clinton and the DNC that they left their email systems so exposed and vulnerable?  None of the Republican candidates seemed to have their emails hacked.  Neither did Senator Bernie Sanders.  Or if they were hacked, their email correspondence did not have the same “juice” that Team Clinton’s emails had.

So basically, team Clinton was either stupid for putting what they did in email and/or reckless in leaving their email systems so vulnerable.  Being stupid and reckless should probably disqualify someone from being US President.  And perhaps that is why the result was what it was.

What’s next on their conspiracy theory playlist?  Hey. Maybe they next claim that Anthony Weiner, the jailed registered sex offender ex-husband of Secretary Clinton’s closest confidant Huma Abedin was possibly a Russian agent or a Wikileaks mole.

Fair dinkum these people are masters at trying to polish turds into tulips, and the US mainstream media are equally masters of sniffing turds and smelling tulips.

    Quite so.

    When I was a public servant, I knew that if I’d done what Clinton had done (ie, had classified emails sent to my own home email server), then I would be in jail.

    That Clinton isn’t currently in prison demonstrates that the rules don’t apply to the mainstream political class any more.

    Now that is my quote of the year!!!

    .. or both.

    I’ve yet to figure out why the Russians would have preferred a Trump victory over a Clinton victory. What was their motive? Can anyone explain?

    Maybe Hillary should have tried campaigning in the swing states.

    None of this would be of consequence had Hilarity not lost the unlosable.
    Pres Hilarity would simply cover up all the crimes, hide Obama’s illegal spying on all Americans, not just Trump.
    No one was supposed to know anything.

    Doesn’t this paragraph belong in the SSM thread?

    Or maybe no one (with serious means to do so) bothered to hack them? After all nearly everyone believed they (Sanders and then Trump) will lose anyway.

    Actually this whole post misses the point. Hacks are wrong and likely illegal. The fact that (1) the emails revealed juice and (2) were poorly protected is neither here nor there.

    And the hacks did occur, and it was the Russians who did them – as established by the US intelligence agencies.

  11. entropy

    That makes th one time of these emails totally all right then, doesn’t it Boris, you should be ashamed.
    Here’s a theory, perhaps it was a DNC Sanders supporter that provided the opportunity for hackers. So frigging obvious.

    With Crimton as the SoS, the Kenyan Administration
    – conspired with the EUSSR for invasion and regime change in Ukraine, overturning elected pro-Russian prez Yanukovich and replacing him with a pro-EUSSR puppet with the intention of pushing NATO further into the former USSR and stealing the Sevastopol port
    – created a civil war in Syria to eliminate a Russian ally (after Putin had put a lot of effort into defusing the Chechan rebels), AGAIN taking away a warm water port from the Russian Navy.

    So leaving aside all the perfectly sensible reasons why no sane person (and any right-thinking insane person too, not to discriminate against Stimson) would want Crimton as POTUS, I’d suggest Putin might bear some personal malice to her. While she is massively corrupt and can be bought (as seen in the Rosatom “transaction”), the problem is she is massively corrupt and can be bought. Her usefulness lasted just long enough until the next bribe came in, and then she fucks over Russia again. He can’t work with someone like that.

    “And the hacks did occur, and it was the Russians who did them…”

    because, of course, no-one would EVER bother to download free hacking tools that have the same “Russia” signature, and no hacker would EVER leave a misdirection about who they are and where they are working, and no hacker would EVER think to update the meta-data in a file to cover their tracks, and…
    There’s also significant evidence that it was all downloaded onto a flash drive locally – can you say “insider”?

    Ask some REAL experts on cyber security and you’ll find out that the the whole thing is VERY difficult to work out, relies almost exclusively on opinion rather than fact, and that one’s pre-conceptions significantly colour ones conclusions. Change just ONE pre-conception, and the result changes from “Russia” to “China” or “Israel” or “Iran” or “North Korea”, or wherever your supposition leads you.

    “And the hacks did occur, and it was the Russians who did them…”

    Oh, it’s also interesting that, just like with climate revelations, the people that have been “caught out” claim victim status because someone “stole” the info from them, yet oddly never deny the stolen material is factual. Just like all their quotes are “taken out of context”, but those of their enemies that they quote, despite also being out of context, cannot be so defended.

    “Actually this whole post misses the point. Hacks are wrong and likely illegal. The fact that (1) the emails revealed juice and (2) were poorly protected is neither here nor there.”

    Poppycock. Whistleblowing is a core concept in a modern regulatory environment and an essential tool in revealing corruption and misconduct.

    Also, hypocrisy. Wikileaks was lionised for leaking material that leftists saw as damaging to the US. It’s only since the release of truthful material that damages the Clinton crime cartel that the left has flipped on Wikileaks and demonised its activities.
