Google search phrase: What's a Firewall?

     Maybe John McCain was on to something when he refused to stop using clay tablets. Because it seems Secretaries of State still haven't grasped the basic concept of email security, firewalls, encrypted emails and all that techie stuff. Because it seems the State Department, the Democratic National Committee, Colin Powell and Lord knows how many other government and former government entities still stubbornly insist on using clay pipes, or, if they're feeling especially Millennial and hip, maybe lead. Sure, the young'uns are using them there new fangled PVC water pipes but ours ain't never gonna spring a leak.
     Via DCLeaks and the priceless Lee Fang of The Intercept comes this newest treasure trove of dirt on Hillary Clinton (And, speaking strictly as an aside, today would be a fabulous day for Donald Trump to release those tax returns and real medical records). And I have to say, if Crooked Hillary still gets to stagger into the White House after this, then it'll be the most vivid delineation of corruption in US politics since Watergate. Not that I want Trump going into the Oval Office instead of her. I'd rather butt fuck a rabid badger for an hour straight than see that.
     But Hillary backers really ought to start giving Bernie a harder second squint. Jill Stein has zero chance of getting elected... except on the B side of a Bernie ticket. Consider: Bernie never gave up his delegates, never conceded or officially suspended his campaign and his name was still put in nomination at the Philly convention last July. He's still a viable candidate. And, unlike Clinton, he's actually helping the Lakota Sioux and their ongoing fight against the Dakota pipeline (even though he has nothing to gain by doing so).
     And what I'm saying here isn't particularly shockingly or brilliantly insightful or original. It's just good common sense. Plus, while I pay little if any attention to polls this close to Election Day, the latest ones have Hillary actually behind Trump in battleground states and those were conducted weeks before this new disclosure this morning.
     Among the most devastating DCLeaks/Intercept disclosures of Colin Powell's hacked emails:

  • Hillary not only blamed one black man for her email woes (even though it was like comparing apples to oranges as Secretary Powell used a secure gov't server for his official State emails), she's also hating on another black man (President Obama, referred to by the Clintons as "that man") for legitimately beating her in the 2008 election.

  • Her very biggest donors just happened to land cushy diplomatic jobs. One bird got the top spot at the FCC thanks to "that man" after he'd shoveled $3.5 million at the President's feet.

  •      Hillary Clinton is simply the Ethan Couch of US politics. She brazenly breaks the law, gets innocent people killed in the process (such as in Libya, which set back women's rights by decades) and honestly thinks wealth, position and privilege should insulate her from any kind of comeuppance or even just scrutiny whatsoever. And, like Couch and his Robert Rodriguez-like exodus into Mexico, when the heat got to be too much, Hillary also ducked out of sight and went for over 260 days without a presser. Pneumonia? Bullshit. We should call her the Affluenza Candidate.
         My final thoughts on this for now?

    Told ya that Clinton's double-digit lead last month wouldn't hold.

    And this doesn't take into account her getting sick.

    Is it time for the Clintonistas to go into Defcon 2 mode?

    Because their next order of business is to beat down on the 2-4 percent of voters who support Stein.

    But that could be enough to swing the vote Trump's way.

    I remember back in the summer reading the raw thoughts of a Clintonista online: "I will say this: if Trump becomes president because too many of you went 4th party on us I will be in the streets in search of you."

    Wow, a not-too-subtle threat.

    No one else on the forum called him out because most of them agreed with him.

    And it came at a time when Clinton and her supporters should have been celebrating and letting bygones be bygones because they'd just vanquished Sanders by hook or by crook.

    But no, they wanted to rub it in the faces of anyone who hadn't gotten on their bandwagon and wanted to join Stein's instead.

    That's what the Clinton camp has turned into and I'm afraid there will be more Clintonistas behaving like him if Trump is president-elect on the morning of November 9. Anyone who voted for Stein had best not advertise it or be prepared to defend yourself.

    With "friends" like today's Dems, who needs Repubs?
