Color me surprised!

The left projects. They accuse their enemies of all sorts of vile and indecent behavior, not because it happens, but because they are always the one doing that. Remember the constant narrative from the DNC operatives with bylines (the media) around the racist and violent Tea Baggers? Not a single incident of misbehavior or racism out of the slew of shit the media threw at the wall hoping it would stick ever did, because when it comes to criminality and abuses, the left is the group that owns that space. Maybe you have missed the recent spate of hacked DNC emails that were released. They show the democrats for what they are. And in typical collectivist fashion – like our resident troll here does all the time – the DNC scumbags are desperate to deflect the real conversation we should be having about how anyone could trust people that are willing to do this sordid stuff should be trusted with power.

Don’t worry, Clinton’s campaign manager has a CM level deflection: the Russians are behind it because they want Trump. A 3rd grader can see through that mountain illogic. The Russians – like every other country with a hostile relationship to the US and quite a few of those pretending to be friends but being anything but that – want Clinton as president. With all the shit they got off her unsecured servers and by penetrating other systems from the wide open door that hack left them, not to mention all the money they have given her to buy favors, they have so much dirt on her that she will basically end up their stooge (which she already might be). It is quite funny to me that it took the target off everyone that secretly is a Clinton supporter’s ire for that fact to be pointed out. And the Clintons already have a record of selling America down the river to personally enrich themselves (research Bill’s connection to the Chinese military and what a few measly million of illegal Chinese secret service money to the campaign fund of WJC got China and you will see why China was able to leap 6 decades of military technology in a span of a decade). The current Clinton candidate is making her husband’s transgressions look tame. What you have not heard any of that? I Googled it for those of you that seem to be challenged getting the facts. Of course, if you are a typical leftist and have the same reaction vampires do when confronted with holy symbols, holy water, or sunlight, when confronted with facts, giving you the facts is meaningless: you don’t care about them.

The bar being lowered by the information we glean into the people running the DNC and directing operations from these leaks go on and on. Anti-Semitism? Definitely! Coordination between the DNC and the media to help Hilary and attack here opposition? Do you even have to ask? Rigged primaries? Hell yes (lucky for me the republicans didn’t succeed at their effort to do that)! Trying to make Trump supporters look like racists? Really? Wasn’t it obvious from the people that were the most desperate to tell you that was the case? If we are lucky we will finally also find the emails coordinating the DNC & Obama admin’s agenda with the whole BLM movement to turn out the vote in November. And in case you have not been following the news and realized that these people are just above the law, you are going to just as sorely disappointed as the Bernie Sanders people will be. Accountability has not existed under this administration, and it certainly will not under a Clinton administration.

Oh, I am sure the media and the DNC will keep pushing real hard on how the problems that have caused the rise of Trump are that the people that buy into his “fascist rhetoric” (that is code for any subject the PC crowd needs to shut down the conversation on) are all unwashed stupid racist, misogynistic, homophobic, xenophobes, because admitting that the issue is that our leaders have betrayed us, are both incompetent and could care less about the people that elected them, unless it makes for some positive PR, and we the people that are paying attention have had enough, doesn’t play well with the elite that look down on us.

I say so again: this election is a revolt by those of us that have realized that the establishment is screwing us all. The big difference between the democrats and republicans is that the democrats are on a fast track to wreck the country and the planet.

I could say “I told you so” but even that feels hollow after the destruction wrought by these idiots

Frankly, I am left wondering if the people that write articles like this one actually are this dense and don’t get that what Obama promised was exactly what he delivered on. Only a fucking idiot fell for that “Hope and Change” shit, and those of us that pointed out what we would get was many people hoping they would get to keep some change – an expression of getting fleeced/robbed by the vote buying crooks that due to their lack of ability to produce anything of value make a living from ripping those that do off – from these crooks, are only surprised that the idiots that fell for it still don’t realize why it was obvious to us that this is exactly how things would play out. We got an unvetted, inept, and idiotic narcissist marxist islamist that talked a mean talk but whose only track record was “community organizing” as our POTUS because the assholes in the media that are bought and paid for by the DNC managed to bamboozle enough mental lightweights to tip the voting in favor of the party of “Free shit”.

The left sold Obama as the second coming. After 8 years of Boosh and all that pent up anger people were convinced they needed a change. That anger existed primarily because Boosh not only managed to prevent Al Gore from using an army of lawyers and every dirty trick in the book to steal the 2000 election, but then ended up dealing with the War on Terror, which everyone knew would have just been politicized by the left to push more stupid shit. Just look at how Bill Clinton whined that it happened under Boosh and not him, depriving him of that political opportunity to grand stand, or how Obama has handled the aftermath of the war fought by Boosh. In hindsight, Iraq having been a bad miscalculation, with the expensive and bloody victory pissed away by the next administration, along with Afghanistan which was the only moral war unit Obama was in charge when only the wars started by Obama would be moral, one can say we should have avoided that conflict. But the truth is that the left wanted to make sure America lost for daring to fight back instead of accepting the role of the bad perp the left believes it is, and they did everything they could to made that happen. Boosh was called a warmongering madman, and the usual credentialed elitist scumbags all pretended the reason everything was fucked up was because he actually decided to make a weak stand to a murderous ideology hell bent on enslaving the globe and to a plethora of leftist thugs across the globe.

In marched Obama, whom his PR team told us would not only fix everything and make America loved again, but stop the rising of the oceans, and usher in peace on earth. Now, 8 years later the United States, and the world in general, are all in absolute disarray. Things – across the board – are far worse. Where to start? The list of items to back up this claim is just so long, with so many egregious and downright horrendous failures and abuses, that it boggles the mind. The one thing I can say is that even I couldn’t imagine these people would be this inept and destructive as they have proven to be, showing this much disdain for the American people they are supposed to be representing, while tearing everything down, leaving chaos and pain in their wake.Be it economic policy, foreign policy, or simple things as upholding the law, they not only failed, and failed bad, but did so in ways that set new standards for how low things could go. Basically we had a bunch of amateur checker players that bought into the delusion spread by the media that they were capable geniuses trying to outsmart others that compared to them would have to be ranked as chess champions. And the constant lying, man. Bear with me.

The islamists which had been taking an ass whooping under simpleminded Boosh, despite attempts from the left to aid and abet the enemy during the Boosh years, are now not only spreading their cause and winning, but Obama and his people can’t even admit that even if we don’t want to be at war witht hem, they sure as hell are at war with us. I don’t have to elaborate. Look at the news. Not a week goes by without some scumbag murdering people in the name of that evil cult. This cancer has only gotten stronger. And taken as a whole, I admit that the only strategy I see from this administration is actions that helped make that the case. Obama has started more wars, excuse me, kinetic actions, not one of them resulting in anything but abysmal failure for us and an escalation of the problems, but we keep getting told by idiots that Boosh was the warmongering asshole. You do remember Libya and Syria, right? Hillary and her buddies sure do. They made big money, left a US ambassador out there to be murdered – an act of war – because they were worried about an election, then lied about what happened to advance an agenda. I would not be surprised to find out ISIS was a child of the Obama admin that basically turned on its master.

And the failures don’t stop with the disastrous handling of the war that the islamist have brought to the crumbling western world. From Russia – remember the rest button from Staples Hillary used as a prop to fix thingsto China, to Europe, our enemies all are in a better position to screw us over, while our allies all have reason to be weary of the US because of backstabbery on a Machiavellian level perpetrated by this administration. They managed to be outplayed by Putin and countless others from multiple players in China to Iran, always focusing on the political ramifications at the voting booth instead of the political ramification on the global scale. Iran will build a nuke and likely start a nuclear war in the Middle East in the next decade, and I bet the left blames the next president for that – especially if it is not a democrat – while North Korea has continued to be more and more aggressive (yes, Boosh dropped the ball there). And man did the Obama admin set a new record for using the agents of government against political enemies both at home and abroad. For example, this administration used tax payer money to pursue a personal vendetta against Nethanyahu whom they wanted to fuck over because he called them on their ineptitude and lies, not just about Iran, but in general. At home they fucked over anyone that dared point out they were basically going to let Iran build a nuke. And there are countless other stories like that, many not even told by a media that went into overdrive playing damage control for these buffoons. Yet, we still have to hear that Boosh was the inept politician and cowboy, while I just saw a misleading commercial about how awesome Hillary was as the SEC-STATE of the most inept administration in my lifetime was, despite the reality, and that we should now make her president!

Domestically this administration set new records for abuses and down right criminal activity. Nixon is spinning in his grave because the scumbags in this administration actually used every agency of the government, from the IRS, to the DOJ, to the EPA, and so on, to target enemies of the Obama administration. And they got away with it because of a complicit media populated by DNC operatives with bylines. Heck, the FBI just let Hilary walk on a slam dunk case that would have been a one-and-done under the very espionage act that the Obama administration used more than all previous administrations combined, to punish anyone that dared to whistle blow on the breadth and dept of criminality in what Americans were promised would be the most ethical and transparent administration evah! (Another bullshit slogan that turned out to be the exact opposite of the lies).

Our economy is in shambles. After these crooks ripped us of to the tune of trillions, be it through their shovel-ready prokulous projects or the money pissed away buying votes from those that vote for a living, all while cock-blocking every and all real job creating opportunities. The rich have gotten richer than ever, the pool of people sucking at the government’s teats has set new records, we now have the lowest percentage of worker participation since the thirties, if not in the history of the country, the middle class has been ass raped, our healthcare system is in disarray and unraveling after Obamacare finally got to do its thing and Obama threatens to veto those that want to stop the train wreck, the economic future looks bleak, and their solution is to make life worse for us so their rich buddies that stand to make a ton of money from these schemes and scams or hippies that worship Gaia, can all signal their social justice virtuousness. And Obama’s plan for the future, that fundamental change to America he promised, comes in the form of an invasion from the rejects of South America.

I can go on and on, but you get my drift. Those of us that know better know how bad things are and why. Those that don’t want to admit they bet on the wrong horse or are so ideologically blinded that nothing will convince them otherwise, will find fault with me pointing their hypocrisy out. The fact is that Obama has managed to make Carter look like a decent president, and until Obama, Carter was hands down the worst president of my lifetime. Obama’s PR team and his narcissistic nature wrote a lot of checks that he simply couldn’t cash. These people have no problem telling lies and abusing power. Remember that when you wonder how someone like Trump could end up the presidential candidate opposing the only other person in politics that I think is even more inept, corrupt, and dangerous than Obama.

Oh, this is priceless!

I was hoping something like this would eventually happen, and I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised it happened this fast:

A lawyer for one of the NYPD cops accused of doing favors for bribes — including mile-high sex with this hooker on a free trip to Las Vegas — said his client’s behavior was no worse than Hillary Clinton’s.

“It’s similar to what the FBI said about Hillary Clinton, and why she wasn’t charged,” said John Meringolo, a lawyer for James Grant, who pleaded not guilty in Manhattan federal court Wednesday.

“She was unaware she was committing a crime. Here, there is no crime whatsoever.”

Meringolo described his client’s alleged actions — swapping police favors for expensive gifts like the wild trip with prostitute Gabi Grecko — as mere violations of police conduct.

“There’s been similar conduct with private jets in the past,” he said, pointing to former Commissioner Ray Kelly, who he said “took a private jet” and then paid for it after the fact in order to hush criticisms.

NYPD Deputy Chief Michael Harrington and Brooklyn businessman Jeremy Reichberg also pleaded not guilty to several charges on Wednesday, including conspiracy to commit honest-services fraud, honest-services wire fraud, conspiracy to pay and receive bribes and the payment and receipt of bribes.

This is absolutely perfect. Force everyone to see that the system is corrupt if it doesn’t allow others to get away with crimes like Hillary did. I am sure the usual collectivist morons will twist themselves into pretzels trying to explain why this is different, but it is not. Hillary, according to Comney, got off because she was too stupid to know better. I hope everyone uses this defense until the entire system collapses or loses its credibility completely.

Enjoy it people. This is what the rule of law looks like under collectivism. Our elites look down on us and think the laws only should apply to us, and not them. It is just deserts that some of the peasants are using the same defense that the corrupt political aristocracy used to get off.

PRICELESS!

Thus dies democracy

If you had any doubt that the inept, corrupt, and totally evil credentialed aristocracy that today pretends to run the western world could hold its laws, its system of government, and its very people in more contempt than it does, just read about how they have again proven that they consider themselves above the law that they would use to crucify us peons, as Hillary gets away with a crime none of us would survive:

FBI Director James Comey announced Tuesday that the FBI will not recommend federal prosecution of Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server to store what turned out to be thousands of classified documents in her emails.

The U.S. Justice Department has the final say, but Attorney General Loretta Lynch said last week that she ‘fully expects’ to act on whatever the FBI recommends. The FBI doesn’t expect any criminal charges to result, Comey said.

‘We are expressing to the Department of Justice our view that no charges are appropriate in this case,’ he said.
‘In looking back into our investigations into the mishandling or the removal of classified information, we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts.’

Just WOW!. Comney has basically made the case that someone that compromised national security, and broke laws that have destroyed other people for far less, gets off because she is part of the inner circle that fancies itself above these laws and thus gets a pass. I have for a long time held the legal system in contempt and have wondered if I would trust it to be fair if I were up against it. I now have the clearest answer possible to that question, and it is a resounding “Not a fucking chance”. And the fucking idiots wonder why we had the Brexit vote or the rise of Donald Trump in the US, whom by the way proceeded to say exactly what people like me have said repeatedly about this case:

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump fired back almost immediately on Twitter.

‘The system is rigged,’ he wrote. ‘General Petraeus got in trouble for far less. Very very unfair! As usual, bad judgment.’

‘FBI director said Crooked Hillary compromised our national security. No charges. Wow! #RiggedSystem,’ a second tweet read.

As Trump points out, Petraeus got fucked over by this very administration of all things, which used a far lower bar to to throw the full weight of the law at him and make sure he would never be able to run for political office or pose the threat they perceived in him, after they made him a criminal and a security issue. Note that Obama’ administration has set new records for using the espionage act against its enemies. Yet Hillary does far worse and Comney comes back and gives us the following shit:

‘Although we did not find clear evidence that sec Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws,’ Comey said, ‘there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.’

Comey said the FBI determined that before Clinton deleted tens of thousands of her ‘personal’ emails, her attorneys deleted several work-related messages. The lawyers didn’t read them all but searched keywords to determine which of them might qualify as government records.

But despite her incomplete submission to the State Department, he said, ‘we found no evidence that any of the additional work related emails were intentionally deleted.’
Comey acknowledged that rank-and-file government employees might not receive a clean legal bill of health in similar circumstances, and might also have their security clearances revoked.

‘This is not to suggest that in similar circumstances a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions, but that’s not what we’re deciding now,’ he said.

And, he insisted, ‘all the cases prosecuted’ in other instances of mishandling classified files ‘involved some combination of clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information or vast quantities of information exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct or indications of disloyalty to the United States or efforts to obstruct justice.’

Since when was ignorance of the law an excuse to be let off the hook? Ask yourself if a normal citizen, or better yet republican politician, after the revelations we have of abuses of power, would have been allowed to be given a pass while a republican held the White House. Ask yourself if They would be given a pass while running for the highest office in the land, especially if they had made the idiotic argument that they not only broke the law but helped our enemies spy on us and compromise our efforts around the globe, while using the excuse that it was their incompetence that allowed it to happen, and not a willful disrespect for the legalities that would have maybe exposed the nefarious and criminal activities they were involved in and decided were only possible to hide by not following the law that would prevent the very things we got. Ask yourself if the media and the corrupt left would ever have resorted to contorting themselves into pretzels to excuse the inexcusable.

Remember that the revolution we celebrated just yesterday on the 4th of July had everything to do with people feeling their rulers basically held them in contempt and had a legal system they felt themselves above. Have no doubt that our credentialed political class no longer serves anyone but their own interests and needs. We now have had our legal system bless the criminal activities of a woman that has sold access to her and her influence to any taker with enough money, including foreign powers, as nothing but carelessness. This women, if she wins what is sure to be a rigged election, will then not only get the ability to sell more of us out, but be in a spot where they can blackmail her.

I guess we deserve these people as our leaders, considering how far we have fallen and how much we have let them get away with. When this ends badly, we shouldn’t blame anyone but ourselves for letting this happen. A bunch of credentialed buffoons that have sold us down the river and basically given up all pretense of doing what they do for any other reason but to enrich themselves now run the western world, and we are all going to pay for that. Tragic.

Well, that’s because it is all lies you tools!

WaPo has a laughable article titled Hillary Clinton’s email story continues to get harder and harder to believe where they actually contort themselves into pretzels trying to avoid saying the obvious: She is a liar and lying about the fact she broke the law and is trying to stall the required prosecution and incarceration. From the article:

On Monday night, the Associated Press published a piece noting the release of an additional 165 pages of emails Hillary Clinton sent from her private email address while serving as secretary of state. These were emails that had never been previously released and only were made public because of a court order in response to a request from a conservative group.

And yet again, the emails poke holes in Clinton’s initial explanation for why she decided to exclusively use a private email server for her electronic correspondence while serving as the nation’s top diplomat.

Let’s start with this from the AP story: “The emails were not among the 55,000 pages of work-related messages that Clinton turned over to the agency in response to public records lawsuits seeking copies of her official correspondence.”

Remember that Clinton and a small group of people working for her reviewed all of the emails she sent from her private server and made the decision about what was solely personal and what was work-related. She handed over the work-related email and permanently deleted those that she and her team decided were purely personal. She wound up deleting more emails than she turned over to State.

The latest batch of emails suggest that Clinton’s filter to decide between the personal and the professional was far from foolproof. That these emails never saw the light of day before Monday — or before a conservative legal advocacy group petitioned for their release — opens up the possibility that there are plenty more like them that Clinton chose to delete but shouldn’t have. And it provides more fodder for the Republican argument that Clinton appointing herself as judge, jury and executioner for her emails was, at best, a very, very bad decision and, at worst, something more nefarious than just bad judgment.

Yeah, see the issue here is the language being used. Chizilla seems to go out of his way to make this something passive instead of pointing out that this was done, and done on purpose to hide what these scumbags were doing, which obviously leads one to the only actual and accurate conclusion, that Hillary and practically everyone else in the Obama administration related to this have been lying their asses off. I find it insulting when the democrat agents with bylines in the MSM all go out of their way to make Hillary innocent in this case, even going so far as presenting her as some technophobe and old doggering fool.

I guess saying she is just an old grandma and not the shyster she is seems to make the left feel they have an out, but as a voter, I wouldn’t be inclined to cast mine for someone that seems to, from the media’s attempts to hide her criminal activity, be suffering from dementia. She could just press that button and nuke somewhere in Arkansas where one of Bill’s ex-mistresses is hiding, or Chicago to get the Obamas, in a fit of anger.

I ask again, do you think a republican candidate – other than Trump whom seems to be the LSM’s kryptonite – get away with this shit? If you can answer honestly, you know how insulting it is to others that actually followed the law or were hammered for breaking or appearing to break it by this administration.

Hillary needs to be wearing orange or stripped jumpsuits and pursue a career making license plates. That would be justice in this case. And she needs to be joined by people like Lerner whom now clearly is in contempt of congress and a criminal.

If you didn’t know that it was pretend, then stuff like this should clarify it

Never forget that the left is about tyranny. Sure they love to pretend to like democracy, but that is when things go their way. As soon as that doesn’t happen, then you get stuff like this (which was previously titled like this):

Since British voters elected on Thursday to leave the European Union, signs have quickly emerged of the flaws in holding a referendum on such a messy, massive, far-reaching decision.

Politicians responsible for explaining what’s at stake have admitted they may have fudged some of the consequences. Nigel Farage, leader of the U.K. Independence Party, acknowledged Friday merely an hour after the election was called that one of the Leave campaign’s key promises to voters was inaccurate. Brexit backers pledged that money the U.K. currently sends to the E.U. — supposedly £350 million ($462 million) a week — would go to the country’s national health system instead. Former London mayor Boris Johnson even drove around Britain in a bus blaring that message.

On Friday, Farage called that claim a “mistake.” (Kudos to the incredulous TV reporter who then followed up: “Do you think there are other things people will wake up this morning and find out aren’t going to happen as a result of voting this way?”)

Oh, the article goes on to pretend these scumbag tyrannical leftists have a good reason to say that in general the unwashed masses that these masters are sure are not as smart as they are (reference here, shouldn’t be allowed to make choices the globalist leftist movement doesn’t like, but that’s bullshit. Most of the negative consequences we are seeing to this exit vote are simply retaliatory measures by pissed nanny staters that want to punish the plebes for daring to defy their aristocracy’s hold on power.

The grand message here by the political aristocracy and their scumbag lackeys in the media is that these plebes that voted “No” know not what’s better for them, unlike the political globalist masters. You fucking inbred morons are motivated by the usual nefarious reasons – racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, and so on – while they, the enlightened masters, see beyond all that. The fact that the voters point out they basically decided these masters had gotten too corrupt and felt no accountability to the people they represented is just pap. Democracy is doing what the marxist-globalist left wants. Don’t take my word for it:

All of this was, perhaps, predictable, as some political scientists and historians have warned that a simple yes-or-no public referendum can be a terrible way to make a decision with such complex repercussions. The process looks like direct democracy in its purest form, and it was celebrated as such by many Leave campaigners after the vote. But David A. Bell, a Princeton historian writing in The New Republic four years ago as Greece was preparing for a referendum on its bailout, argues that the result of referendums is much more often anti-democratic.

Methinks these people don’t realize the actual meaning of what the word democracy means. It simply is the rule of the masses, the decision they make being good or not according to whomever, having no impact on that choice. Democracy can be just as tyrannical as anything else, but never as tyrannical as what a ruling class that holds disdain for the people it rules and simply makes decisions that primarily benefit that ruling class way too often at the expense of the masses, which is why the forefathers of the US opted for a Representative Republic. Making a choice that the marxist-globalist left dislikes, for whatever reason and irrespective of whatever justification that the anyone would want to present as justification for claiming otherwise, doesn’t make that vote undemocratic as these mouth pieces of the tyrannical leftist cabal want you to believe. If they had “miscounted” the vote, like they did or continue to do in the greatest bastions of practical implementations of the systems of government favored by the left, or just outright disregarded the outcome of such a vote, which is exactly what I see the anti-brexit types are planning to do, then we would have something that is undemocratic.

The whole feel of this idiotic article is that the people that voted against what their masters and betters want, just don’t know what’s good for them. And the orchestrated campaign to cause as much pain as possible to all, the intended consequence being to make sure that nobody does anything like this again, as well as the call for a do-over are really what one could potentially label undemocratic. Basically we have another famous “Too big to fail” moment, like we had back in 2008, when the wholly rotten and totally broken US homeownership lending industry regulated to push perverse incentives that defied the laws of economics and human nature, going on here too. Do not defy the masters in Brussels and their plans, or else.

The globalists have corrupted the idea of a globalized planet brought together by economic and human interest by creating bloated beasts that rob the people of their freedoms and simply serve to enrich the political masters and the few they allow to come along, and are screwing us all over. People shouldn’t be deciding things simply on how much free shit the masters promise them, always shit taken from others, and those that are being fleeced shouldn’t be villainized when they point out that their masters have not just failed them, but are ripping them off and fucking them over. Have no doubt that this vote, despite of the stories being told now, was one to protest the disconnected masters and the fact that they no longer even care to pretend they hold the very people they are supposed to be serving in contempt. And this rebellion against their will and direction, by what these masters see as uneducated morons that are beneath them, is what pisses these scumbags in power the most.

Can it get even more rediculous?

If you have any doubt that the Obama administration, reluctantly or otherwise, is protecting that criminal Hillary Clinton from being indicted for breaking the law and basically allowing nations with hostile intentions to the US to use her setup as a doorway to hack our government, then read this latest revelation in this saga:

Documents recently obtained by the conservative advocacy group Judicial Watch show that in December 2010, then-US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her staff were having difficulty communicating with State Department officials by e-mail because spam filters were blocking their messages. To fix the problem, State Department IT turned the filters off—potentially exposing State’s employees to phishing attacks and other malicious e-mails.

The mail problems prompted Clinton Chief of Staff Huma Abedin to suggest to Clinton, “We should talk about putting you on State e-mail or releasing your e-mail address to the department so you are not going to spam.” Clinton replied, “Let’s get [a] separate address or device but I don’t want any risk of the personal [e-mail] being accessible.”

The mail filter system—Trend Micro’s ScanMail for Exchange 8—was apparently causing some messages from Clinton’s private server (Clintonemail.com) to not be delivered. Some were “bounced;” others were accepted by the server but were quarantined and never delivered to the recipient. According to the e-mail thread published yesterday by Judicial Watch, State’s IT team turned off both spam and antivirus filters on two “bridgehead” mail relay servers while waiting for a fix from Trend Micro.

There was some doubt about whether Trend Micro would address the issue before State performed an upgrade to the latest version of the mail filtering software. “I am not confident Trend Micro will provide an update for SMEX 8,” wrote one member of State’s IT team, Trey Jammes. “That is two revs behind their current offering, SMEX 10, and they are pushing us to go to that (currently in pilot), and they have never not yet been able to deliver a fool-proof solution for a problem that has been around for at least 2 years. Unfortunately, we have seen similar problems with SMEX 10… I don’t think we have seen that problem with SMEX 10 when running without the anti-spam piece.”

A State Department contractor support tech confirmed that two filters needed to be shut off in order to temporarily fix the problem—a measure that State’s IT team took with some trepidation, because the filters had “blocked malicious content in the recent past.”

It’s not clear from the thread that the issue was ever satisfactorily resolved, either with SMEX 8 or SMEX 10. But State’s unclassified e-mail system has been repeatedly breached by attackers. An attack purported to have been staged by Russian hackers caused the department to briefly shut down all its unclassified e-mail systems in 2014 but persisted within State’s network for more than a year afterward. Then Iranians spear-phished State employees in 2015, breaching the e-mail system again.

And those are the attacks we know of or they are willing to talk about. The FBI is pissed beyond belief with the amount of shit that got compromised and the amount of bad actors that got in, to the point that their director has refused stand down orders from the complicit WH. Think hard about this. We are in a country where a criminal that shouldn’t be allowed a security clearance of any kind not only still remains at large and is running for the highest office in the land, but is because of the blatant need to keep lying about what she did or ordered her minions to do, a prime candidate for blackmail by hostile agents of all sorts.

Can anyone seriously say that if this person was a republican, that they, and for that matter a sitting president that provided them cover for fear of what it would show about how inept and down right criminal their agency has been, would not be making license plates wearing an orange jump suit by now after a media firestorm and the opposition party basically going balisitic?

Yeah, I didn’t think so either, but this is the age of the credentialed democrat political aristocracy and that fundamental change Obama promissed us. Get used to being fucked over royally by people that think they are not just above the law, but that the law exists to go after their political enemies and anyone that stands in their way.

This is how the left sees the system work

Sure, I can refer to this Washington Times editorial piece and stick to the fact that, again, the very asshole leftists that want to disarm the people so they can become even more horribly tyrannical in their ways, are violating the second amendment of the constitution, but in doing so I would be missing the forest for the trees. The big lesson here isn’t that these assholes exempted themselves from gun control laws they foisted on the plebes, but the following bigger problem:

The California state Senate voted 28-8 Wednesday to exempt itself from the pointless gun-control laws that apply to the rest of the populace. Legislators apparently think they alone are worthy to pack heat on the streets for personal protection, and the masses ought to wait until the police arrive.

This is just one of many bills Golden State politicians used this legislative session to set themselves apart from the little people, the ones who pay their inflated salaries.

And this double standards when it comes to the people vs. the political aristocracy doesn’t stop with the blue states like California, but is now central to the entire political machine of this country. Wherever you turn, blue state credentialed politicians have straddled the productive with draconian legislation and fiscal responsibilities, while exempting themselves from them. In many cases they have blatantly passed laws to specifically make this the case, but in most cases, what you have is them simply enforcing the laws against the little people and their political enemies while keeping themselves exempt from that.

What is my proof, you ask? Well, if the law applied equally to us all, Obama would have been indicted for doing what Nixon couldn’t – sick the IRS against his political enemies – and the woman running for president on the Demcoratic ticket would be doing it like this:

This is what Hillary's campaign should look like

This is what Hillary’s campaign should look like

UPDATE: Yeah, she has been lying through her teeth about how bad what she did was:

Once again Hillary’s been caught lying about her criminal mishandling of classified national security information. Recall that Ms. Clinton swears none of the emails which passed through her off-the-record email server system was ever marked classified.

Uh oh. Au contraire, madam, once again you are exposed as a liar.

Fox News gets the credit. In an exclusive report published June 11, Fox News revealed that one of Ms. Clinton’s emails had a “portion marking” that identified the specific information contained in the “portion” as being classified. That means the information was sensitive and was legally protected.

The information had the lowest level of classification, Confidential. It discussed a phone call with the president of Malawi, Joyce Banda. Fox News included an information-rich screen shot of the email.

I wonder how much of that stuff that was “accidentally destroyed” makes this all look like peanuts. Actually, no I am not. I know they got rid of it because it was incriminating, and playing this game where we give them the benefit of doubt is long pas its expiration date.

Transparency!

While the DNC controlled media has done its damned best to help the crooks in charge look decent, occasionally the truth slips out:

John Crane, 60, who spent 25 years in government before he was fired as an assistant Defense Department inspector general in 2013, went public with a series of accusations that key officials in the watchdog’s office retaliated against whistleblowers, destroyed permanent records and altered audits under political pressure.

He has filed those charges with the Office of Special Counsel, which so far has referred one to the Justice Department for detailed investigation, though others may soon follow.

Crane’s name and case appear in a new book, Bravehearts: Whistle-Blowing in the Age of Snowden (Hot Books, 2016), by Mark Hertsgaard, excerpted in the British newspaper The Guardian and the German magazine Der Spiegel.

In an interview with Government Executive on Sunday, Crane challenged the criticism by many top U.S. officials who say Edward Snowden, the former Booz Allen Hamilton employee who worked as a National Security Agency contractor, could have taken his complaint through official channels. In 2013, Snowden flew to Hong Kong, leaked classified documents exposing U.S. surveillance programs and ultimately took refuge in Russia.

“Edward Snowden and his decision not to go through the whistleblower process indicate a larger failure within DoD IG,” Crane said. “Snowden did not go through the IG because he saw what had happened to Thomas Drake,” he added.

This reality has permeated this administration across the board: anyone that pointed out how fucked up things had gotten was hammered for doing so. From the VA whistle blowers to those that spoke out about the crap the Obama controlled agencies were doing either in operation “Fast & Furious” or at the IRS, where they targeted enemies of the administration for political reasons, the Obama admin has set new records in punishing those that dared point out that things were real bad for us all.

I remember the BDS infected fuckwads making me defend Boosh when they levied these idiotic accusations against him, and yet today, when we really have a tyrannical government punishing dissent, these fuckers – like the anti-war pinkos – are nowhere to be found.

Venezuela Down the Drain

The situation in Venezuela is becoming grim. Hospitals are leaving infants to die. A country sitting on a lake of oil is experiencing huge power outages thanks to a drought. Their inflation is so bad they literally can’t buy paper to print the money on and India is proposing a return to the barter system where they would get drugs in exchange for oil.

It’s really bad:

In the last two years Venezuela has experienced the kind of implosion that hardly ever occurs in a middle-income country like it outside of war. Mortality rates are skyrocketing; one public service after another is collapsing; triple-digit inflation has left more than 70 percent of the population in poverty; an unmanageable crime wave keeps people locked indoors at night; shoppers have to stand in line for hours to buy food; babies die in large numbers for lack of simple, inexpensive medicines and equipment in hospitals, as do the elderly and those suffering from chronic illnesses.

This is not a visitation of fate. The collapse of oil prices is part of it (as I previously noted) and many former Chavez defenders are trying to weasel out of their previous words by citing oil prices and drought. But it’s not just that. Oil prices have fallen all over the planet. Drought and natural disaster happen all the time. Only Venezuela is imploding like this. It’s because of fundamental flaws in their system:

The real culprit is chavismo, the ruling philosophy named for Chavez and carried forward by Maduro, and its truly breathtaking propensity for mismanagement (the government plowed state money arbitrarily into foolish investments); institutional destruction (as Chavez and then Maduro became more authoritarian and crippled the country’s democratic institutions); nonsense policy-making (like price and currency controls); and plain thievery (as corruption has proliferated among unaccountable officials and their friends and families).

A case in point is the price controls, which have expanded to apply to more and more goods: food and vital medicines, yes, but also car batteries, essential medical services, deodorant, diapers, and, of course, toilet paper. The ostensible goal was to check inflation and keep goods affordable for the poor, but anyone with a basic grasp of economics could have foreseen the consequences: When prices are set below production costs, sellers can’t afford to keep the shelves stocked. Official prices are low, but it’s a mirage: The products have disappeared.

You can check out more from Reason and Hot Air. In the aftermath of this epic economic implosion, many people are digging up old articles that praised the Venezuela model. It’s important to remember just how many “wise” people though Chavez had successfully upended the free market consensus.

The situation in Venezuela isn’t funny. It’s tragic. It is the direct result of a flawed broken system that was enabled by apologists in wealthy countries who should have known better. And things are just going to get worse. They’re going to get a lot worse.
