Silly Headline Of Day: “WikiLeaks poisons Hillary’s relationship with left”

Seriously, Politico writer Kenneth P. Vogel blames Wikileaks for the poisoning, not Hillary, with that headline

Donald Trump is pointing to a stream of hacked emails as proof that Hillary Clinton would be a compromised president, but a surprising number of progressives are drawing similar conclusions — albeit for atotally different reasons.

Some of the left’s most influential voices and groups are taking offense at the way they and their causes were discussed behind their backs by Clinton and some of her closest advisers in the emails, which swipe liberal heroes and causes as “puritanical,” “pompous”, “naive”, “radical” and “dumb,” calling some “freaks,” who need to “get a life.”

There are more than personal feelings and relationships at stake, though.
If polls hold and Clinton wins the presidency, she will need the support of the professional left to offset what’s expected to be vociferous Republican opposition to her legislative proposals and appointments. (snip)

Liberal groups and activists are assembling opposition research-style dossiers of the most dismissive comments in the WikiLeaks emails about icons of their movement like Clinton’s Democratic primary rival Bernie Sanders, and their stances on trade, Wall Street reform, energy and climate change. And some liberal activists are vowing to use the email fodder to oppose Clinton policy proposals or appointments deemed insufficiently progressive.

Hillary is in it for herself, and, much like she has caustic words for those who support Donald Trump, such as “deplorables”, she doesn’t really care for the activists and such on the left. But, finding out how Hillary and her people really think is not the fault of Wikileaks: it’s the fault of Hillary and her people.

Is releasing stolen material bad? Of course. Liberals used to love this, though, when the information was about Republicans, especially George Bush and his administration. Or about the US military. They said it was perfectly OK when it was about our government, highlighting the bad things it was doing. They loved it when Edward Snowden was releasing material showing how much our government was spying on US citizens. Most of the stuff released about Hillary was essentially government.

Regardless, it’s not Wikileaks at fault: don’t blame them for the misconduct of Hillary and her people. It just provides more proof that Hillary hates the little people, who can’t pony up millions of dollars for pay for play access.

    Ain’t it amazing that the government couldn’t get Julian Assange to shut up while hiding in the Ecuadorian embassy, until he started publishing hacked e-mails from Mrs Clinton’s staff? Then, all of a sudden, John Kerry was able to pressure the Ecuadorian government into cutting off Mr Assange’s internet access.

    It didn’t matter when national security was compromised, but attack a Democratic Party political campaign? Sha-zamm! Things will happen then!

    Wikileaks is doing what journalists should be doing, investigative reporting.

    I’m not surprised that Vogel is upset. These emails have shown he and other so called “journolists” are nothing but biased hacks peddling propaganda.

    Sanders-type liberals have always been lukewarm about Clinton, a pragmatic left-of-center Dem. Some of her policies comport with progressives, but her foreign policy “adventurism” and corporate/Wall Street/trade support do not. She was drawn (or has at least voiced) further left by Senator Sanders and the voters.

    Future politicos will be more careful how they communicate and will better protect their servers! Do you think emails between Trump, his staff, Steve Bannon, Rudy and Roger Ailes would reveal anything embarrassing, LOL?

  4. Jeffery says:

    Why not make all emails, letters, telephone calls and conversations of public figures/gov’t officials available to the public?

    Well, that’s just it: the lovely Mrs Clinton set up her private server specifically to evade the requirements of public records laws. Oh, she won’t admit that that was her reason, but it’s the only plausible one; why go to the lengths, and expense, that she did, when the State Department already had its own secure system, provided to her.

    There are public records laws for the very purpose you suggested. Obviously, some things have to be classified.

    And I don’t doubt that the Russians and the Israelis and the Chinese and the British and the French and the Germans are all doing everything that they can to penetrate our cyber-security, just like we are doing everything we can to penetrate theirs.

    Public figures who are not government officials are not covered by the public records laws, nor should they be.

    of course progressives wanted Bernie over Hillary. But they certainly will be a lot happier when she is POTUS than if Trumpf was in the White House. I also think that Hillary is quite pragmatic, and that after she is elected I would hope that she would find it more possible to be more progressive, after she wins
    we can also look forward to her packing the SCOTUS

    Thanks, retard, for your vacuous stupidity.

    This story about Clinton’s scheme for American retirement plans is a classic managerial class rake. Getting picked as one of the firms with a license to “manage’ these new accounts is a license to print money. The government will have to “supervise” this process, which means the bankers will now have a billion reasons to be on good terms with the government. Put another way, Team Clinton is planning to build a giant graft machine.

    Teach Hillary loves the little people taht is why they will vote her in.
