What: WikiLeaks press conference regarding Hillary Clinton
When: 2am CT on 10/4/16
Why: Supposedly they will reveal what they have on Hillary.
Tonight (or, rather, very early tomorrow morning), Julian Assange is holding a press conference in Berlin to supposedly allegedly possibly reveal what WikiLeaks has on Hillary Clinton that they claim will lead to her indictment. This is apparently going to happen at 2am Central Time (1am Eastern Time). I’m a night owl and am up at that time anyway, so I am going to watch this press conference live.
In the meantime, it’s fascinating to speculate on what this could be and why it matters.
Over the last few days, I’ve been busy with a project out in Chicago’s suburbs, which has required me to do a lot of door to door survey taking and going to various events and talking with people. While what I am working on is not related to national politics, the presidential race always comes up. I hear the same few things from people:
1. Everyone was horrified by Hillary Clinton collapsing on 9/11 and having what was clearly a seizure. They also think the weird lies about her rush to Chelsea’s apartment afterwards were bizarre. No one believes she had pneumonia and they found it odd she was hugging that little girl if she really believed she had pneumonia. That moment of seeing her collapse and her whole staff reacted like this was a common everyday occurrence for her was troubling. People who have always hated Hillary don’t wish her ill and didn’t think it was funny that she collapsed…they were concerned for her and worry that she is too sick to be doing any of this. I found that part very interesting, because if the roles were reversed and a Republican candidate was collapsing in public, the Left would be gleefully mocking that (like the Left did when Bob Dole fell off a stage during the 1996 campaign). What I’m seeing instead is people just shaking their head in disbelief that this is all really happening. She is clearly very seriously ill.
2. People now believe that the FBI and the IRS can both never be trusted again. Every day, more is revealed about how the FBI deliberately limited their “investigation” into Hillary’s emails so they would be sure to not find anything that would lead to charges against her. This is how the old Soviet Union operated and how banana republics in South American function. This is not how the United States is supposed to work. What a disgrace our government has become.
3. People see that the Media lies to protect Hillary and to elect her. That makes them angry.
QUESTION: Didn't the New York Times refuse to print the Climategate emails because they said that was "wrong"
Here’s Joe Leiberman calling for a Congressional investigation of the New York Times for publishing sensitive diplomatic cables leaked by Julian Assange and WikiLeaks…including material that identifies key targets for terrorists at US installations around the world.
I remember the New York Times making up a lame excuse for why it was not properly covering Climategate…where the Times said it was because it was “wrong” to publish “private emails” going back and forth between scientists who were concocting false results to support whatever doomsday scenario Al Gore’s Cult of Anthropogenic Global Warming came up with that day.
Do you remember this?
How can the New York Times be allowed to have it both ways?
Do they have any credibility left at all?
You may have, without even realizing it, had access to secret diplomatic cables from the Obama administration to foreign governments.
If over three million people had this access and were able to hand these cables over to WikiLeaks, then maybe your Aunt Trixie, the Ladies Guild at your church, and that raccoon that’s been terrorizing you since last summer had access too.
Apparently, some of these cables were handed out for a limited time inside Cracker Jack boxes in a misguided diplomatic corps recruitment drive by the Obama Administration.
“Damn box lies. There ain’t no crack up in this box! Just more of these boring papers. When can I go golfing again? Fetch me my iReggie. I still owe his behind some of what he did to my lip last week.”
Just another day in the Obama White House.
