The Wikileaks release of a trove of embarrassing DNC emails has infuriated Democrats with a look inside Hillary’s sewer of a political operation. Rather than spend the weekend hyping the queen in waiting and her Spanish speaking career insider pick for a running mate, the party hacks were busy rushing around putting out fires. How to best mitigate the damage? Blame it on the Russians!
By the time that Hillary mouthpiece Robby Mook hit the Sunday morning McNews circuit to pin the blame on Putin the media was already pushing the narrative. That would be the same media that showed that the DNC was colluding with. The FBI – which has become politicized under Obama – was then put on the case with what smacks of a witch hunt to distract from the content of the emails themselves.
Politico reports that “FBI probing DNC hack”:
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has launched a probe into the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s emails, the bureau announced Monday.
“The FBI is investigating a cyber intrusion involving the DNC and are working to determine the nature and scope of the matter,” the agency said in a statement. “A compromise of this nature is something we take very seriously, and the FBI will continue to investigate and hold accountable those who pose a threat in cyberspace.”
The publication of the approximately 20,000 emails showed a DNC favorable to Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders, leading Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to announce her resignation on Sunday, effective at the end of the party’s convention this week.
The Clinton campaign suggested on Sunday that Russia had played a role in the affair, with campaign manager Robby Mook saying that the Kremlin is trying to help Donald Trump. On Monday, Mook pointed to reporting by The New York Times citing researchers who have concluded that two Russian intelligence agencies had breached the party’s servers.
Any evidence backing up the accusations directed at the Russians is of course never offered up by Mook and the corrupt media but even if they were behind the hack Americans should owe them a debt of gratitude. After all, our intrepid media would have never exposed the political corruption at the DNC. Old warhorse Pat Buchanan points this out in his column “Will Putin Get a Pulitzer?”:
The WikiLeaks dump came Friday night. By Sunday, Clinton’s crowd had unleashed the mechanical rabbit, and the press hounds were dutifully chasing it. The new party line: The Russians did it!
Clinton campaign chief Robert Mook told ABC, “experts are telling us that Russian state actors broke in to the DNC, took all these emails, and now they are leaking them out through the Web sites. … some experts are now telling us that this was done by the Russians for the purpose of helping Donald Trump.”
Monday, Clinton chairman John Podesta said there is a “kind of bromance going on” between Trump and Vladimir Putin. Campaign flack Brian Fallon told CNN, “There is a consensus among experts that it is indeed Russia that is behind this hack of the DNC.”
In 1971, the New York Times published secret documents from the Kennedy-Johnson administration on how America got involved in Vietnam. Goal: Discredit the war the Times had once supported, and undercut the war effort, now that Richard Nixon was president.
The documents, many marked secret, had been illicitly taken from Defense Department files, copied and published by the Times.
America’s newspaper of record defended its actions by invoking “the people’s right to know” the secrets of their government.
Well, do not the people have “a right to know” of sordid schemes of DNC operatives to sink a presidential campaign?
Do the people not have a right to know that, in denying Sanders’ charges, the leadership of the DNC was lying to him, lying to the party and lying to the country?
What did Clinton know of Wasserman Schultz’s complicity in DNC cheating in the presidential campaign, and when did she know it?
For publishing stolen Defense Department secrets, the Pentagon Papers, the Times got a Pulitzer Prize.
If the Russians were helpful in bringing to the attention of the American people the anti-democratic business being done at the DNC, perhaps the Russians deserve similar recognition.
By the Times’ standard of 1971, maybe Putin deserves a Pulitzer.
To many skeptics the rush to blame it all on the big bad bear has the appearance of being a crock of horseshit. This is especially the case given the meme being hammered by globalists, the neocons and the Clinton dominated Dem establishment that a vote for Donald Trump is a vote for Putin. It’s a con job that the media has been all too willing to play along with as the campaign of fear and loathing, race baiting and bigotry that the Democrats need to put Hillary into the White House goes on.
But the FBI is on the case, just like they were with Hillary’s private email server and there’s little doubt that they will provide backing for Team Hillary’s claims that it was the Russians. It’s just the way that we roll in the banana republic of Obamastan where there is one law for the pigs who run the sty and another one for their subjects.
