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.
4. But people are angry at Donald Trump for not going for Hillary’s jugular during their first debate. Why did he let her get away without answering any tough questions about the awful things she’s done since 2008? In my opinion, the last 8 years are what people really need to talk about. What has she been up to since the last time she ran for president. Millennials in particular don’t like her because of what Democrats did to Bernie Sanders, so Trump is a fool not to hit her with that like a sledge hammer. So, because Trump went so easy on her a lot of people are again wondering if Trump really wants to win. This same thing happened with McCain and Romney, where at the finish line they just kind of gave up and let Obama win. Is Trump doing that now? He needs to stop it.
5. Everyone keeps talking about how The National Enquirer is the most truthful and believable publication around. This has really been true since 2008 at the very least, when the Enquirer was the only one around reporting accurately on John Edwards’ affair. Remember him? He was the guy who ran as John Kerry’s VP in 2004…and then by 2008 he had cheated on his cancer-stricken wife and sired a lovechild with his mistress. Everyone in politics knew he had done this and the Enquirer wrote extensively about it…yet Edwards stayed in the presidential race so he could draw enough support from Hillary Clinton in Iowa for Barack Obama to win the Caucus. Obama dangled Attorney General in front of Edwards as quid pro quo for that help, but Edwards was one of the first people that Obama threw under the bus once his affair and lovechild exploded into scandal a month or two later. People remember that only the Enquirer told the truth back then…so when the Enquirer reports on Hillary’s health problems and other things she is hiding now, people believe it. The strong consensus is that the Media covers for her and reporters want her to win so they all enable her lies.
If WikiLeaks really does have anything on Hillary Clinton, I imagine it would be things that she thought she deleted…and the worst things possible would be proof that she traded favors as Secretary of State for donations to the Clinton Foundation. I doubt she is stupid enough to write horrible things about the American people in emails. She must be used to the idea that emails like that could get out and burn her.
But, I think when it comes to that greedy Clinton Foundation that she would be so blinded by the money that she very well could have written all kinds of things that would seriously wound her campaign if not destroy it. And if that is the case, then I have no sympathy for her and I don’t know how anyone can defend her.
That Foundation was a problem back in 2008 and it became an issue that people worried about when she was nominated to be Secretary of State. Everyone was promised that the Foundation would not be used as a means of scoring favors from the State Department. So, if there is proof that this is in fact what she did, then Hillary may very well have summoned a whirlwind that will destroy her. And no one should ever cry for her. Her greed when it comes to that cockamamie Foundation of hers would be her own undoing.
I swear, the Clintons behave like addicts when it comes to money. I’ve never seen anything like it. No matter how much they have, they crave more. I have seen alcoholics and drug addicts destroy their lives because they could never get drunk or be high enough. The Clintons get high on money and they can never bring in enough to satisfy themselves. They want to be as rich as George Soros, I think. They want to be as powerful as him and run an empire as shadowy and ubiquitous as his. That is a maddening fools’ quest where all of us lose, since the Clintons leverage political favors as part of their moneymaking scheme.
Their actions with the Foundation are indefensible. So, I can easily picture WikiLeaks coming across quid pro quo arrangements in emails, where State Department favors were traded for handsome speaking fees that went to the Foundation. I believe the Clintons ran that racket from 2008 to 2013. For sure they totally did that.
I also think there might be emails where she makes fun of Bernie Sanders and/or his supporters, because that’s also something I can see the Clintons doing. Bill does not ever email from what I can tell, but Hillary and Huma emailed each other all the time and Hillary and Chelsea are besties. I’ve already seen emails that Hillary sent her daughter while Hillary was in important government meetings. Here she is, emailing her daughter secret information and her daughter is not cleared for anything high-level like that. Since Chelsea grew up around all of this, I bet she knows better than to share the info with anyone…but Hillary still should not be sending her daughter live reports from secret government meetings. What the hell is wrong with them?
Hillary has a ribald, sarcastic, and bawdy sense of humor and so I imagine there are embarrassing things in the 30,000 emails she ordered to be deleted. In our politically correct culture, anything that appears racist would be doom for her. Considering how overly sensitive the special snowflake Millennial generation proves itself to be — and the fact that these Millennials already hate her to begin with — any off-color remarks she made that could be twisted to be “offensive” to self-styled people of color would be catastrophic for Hillary.
I also don’t think her campaign would survive a reopening of the wounds from the primary race. Remember that one Bernie Sanders supporter who dressed like Peter Pan and was crying when Sanders conceded the race officially to Hillary at the convention? I know so many Bernie supporters who are just like this kid. They saw that the Democrats rigged the race for Hillary and that completely destroyed their naive, trusting brains. What if WikiLeaks has something that will prove that Hillary and the DNC coordinated against Bernie and the primaries were rigged the whole time (as anyone with any sense knows they were rigged)?
I’m sure that Hillary knows she loses the election if Millennials stay home. Is there anything in the WikiLeaks documents that would make them stay home?
Millennials love WikiLeaks and they think that Julian Assange is a hero. They adore him and admire him. If he brings them proof that Hillary is guilty of something — whatever that may be — then they will believe it and will lash out against her.
Does WikiLeaks really have something or is this all just a lot of hype? They have succeeded in getting me to set my alarm and to watch their press conference live at 2am here in Chicago. I will update this post as events develop, so check back later if you are hitting the sack before then.
Here’s a great question someone asked me just now:
What do you think of the story out today that Hillary asked in a high-level State Dept meeting (about Assange), “Can’t we just drone him?” There was a recovered email from afterwards titled “an SP memo on possible legal and nonlegal strategies re Wikileaks” – NON-LEGAL???
I have no doubt that it happened, so I am glad Assange nixed the idea of the balcony announcement. It’d dangerous to go against the Clintons; the only way to do it successfully is to do it very publicly, very loudly. Harder to die from an unfortunate accident that way, that could be blamed on anyone.
My response: I believe that Hillary Clinton said that about the drone. I think that many people in our government think this way: they believe they can assassinate anyone who stands in their way and they think of drones as toys they can use whenever and wherever they want. They are the Olympians. The drones are their thunderbolts. They can decide if we live or die because they see themselves as all-powerful. We are at the whim of the New Gods. Washington is their Mount Olympus where they rule over us and smite us when they displease them.
Let’s be really real here and totally candid. Let’s not be afraid to talk openly about some of the things we are not allowed to talk about. Let’s be like the Iraqi people after they saw it was safe to speak out against Saddam and tear down his statues. Remember how the floodgates just opened once everyone who was afraid stopped being afraid and spoke out?
I think that Seth Rich was murdered, either to stop him from revealing something that would harm the Clintons or he was murdered as punishment for leaking all that stuff in the “DNC hack.” All the weird and suspicious deaths lately, including the man who mysteriously crushed his own windpipe on the day that he was supposed to go talk to the FBI about the Clintons, can’t be ignored. I do believe 100% that Democrats murder people who stand in their way. I believe that Andrew Breitbart was poisoned by someone in that bar in Beverly Hills and that he was murdered in 2012, along with other people who questioned what happened to him. Democrats believe they can get away with these things because the Media gaslights anyone who asks questions about all these mysterious (and convenient politically for Democrats) deaths.
I believe that Democrats want Julian Assange to be killed. It is sheer luck that he hasn’t been killed. At some point, we’re going to have a moment in real life that is like that movie The Pelican Brief. The corruption in this country runs so deep that someone like Hillary Clinton probably feels that she is entitled to use drones to murder her enemies. I believe the people in power right now feel that these drones are like playing a video game. They can aim something on a screen at a person and snuff out their life with a BEEP! and a BOOP! like they are playing a game. BAM!, all their problems go away with one drone strike.
And if not that, I think they have no qualms about sending someone to poison a guy or crush his windpipe or cause a mysterious car accident. The government rigs our elections and murders people who stand in the way of the government. This is where we are right now and why we need a Second American Revolution. We’re building towards that. I don’t know what it will look like when it happens, but something will cause the dam to break and it will be just like the fall of Baghdad and end of Saddam’s regime. In that movie The Pelican Brief, the government tries killing the people who know the truth about what’s going on and wealthy people who are pulling the president’s strings just kill anyone they want to kill, because the president doesn’t care and lets them. But, in the end it all comes out and everyone has to resign and all kinds of people go to prison.
That’s what needs to happen in real life.
I think the only reason it has not happened yet is because life out in the suburbs is still pretty good. Most people have jobs. They have kids. They are busy with activities. They like reality shows. I don’t think they know much about all the corruption because Washington DC is this thing that is very far away. It’s rare for people in the suburbs to even get upset about local issues. Suburbanites are really comfortable and happy and they like to think they are very busy with all their activities. They tune into politics the week before an election, if that. So I don’t think many of them know about the murder spree that Democrats have been on in recent years.
If they hear anything about it, they just think, “Oh, that’s crazy” or “That can’t be happening.” They believe what MSNBC and CNN tell them, which is all lies. But they believe the lies that the tee-vee tells them. They also still by the newspaper and believe all the lies in there. On Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg makes sure that people only see things that help Democrats.
But, I think that something will happen that will be so big that no one in the Ministry of Truth Propaganda Center can hide it. There will be something that rips the masks off all these people in power and the dam will break. All hell will break loose. There will be a big national catharsis where even the sleepy, comfortable, oblivious suburbanites rise up and shout ENOUGH.
The Establishment believes this will never happen and that people will never wake up, but I think they are wrong about that. Everything has been building towards that in the last eight years and it will keep building until the dam breaks. The period after the dam breaks should be known as The Reckoning or The Great Awakening, something momentous and epic like that. I can’t wait for The Reckoning to come. It has been too long coming.
141amCT = This is so weird. It’s like waiting for the ball to drop on New Year’s Eve or something. People are doing a countdown until the video starts.
People are joking that a drone strike has probably been ordered or the UN will shut off the Internet to stop the WikiLeaks broadcast. That’s really where we are headed, though, and it’s a terribly scary thing. The globalists really do want control like that over us. This is the kind of stuff that Hitler, Stalin, and Mao only dreamed of being able to do to people. The globalists want the ability to kill anyone who stands in their way in an instant and the ability to censor and silence all their critics. That is the path that George Soros has set for the world. Hillary Clinton, sadly, is just a puppet of Soros’. She has proved that far too many times. And she believes she should be able to use drones to kill people like Julian Assange as well. None of this is okay.
200amCT = Here we go. As Samuel L. Jackson cross-dressed as Bette Davis would say: Fasten your seatbelts and hold onto your butts.
So, then the countdown got to zero…but then nothing happened. It still said, “Live Broadcast starting soon…”
People are saying: “He droned. We trolled.” It’s weird they didn’t start on time. All that hype and you can’t start on time?
Of course everyone thinks he’s dead since the broadcast didn’t start.
206amCT = So, now some people in the chat are saying that the broadcast is really going to be at 300amCT, not 200amCT like they advertised. So we have another hour I guess.
I switched over to Alex Jones’ channel, since he’s broadcasting live, and he’s talking about Julian Assange talking to Roger Stone (he’s a GOP political consultant). Stone keeps saying that Hillary’s campaign will have to end today because the revelations will be so devastating.
Alex Jones is talking about Anderson Cooper being CIA and running operations. I’ve never heard that before. It surprises me because Cooper is gay and in the 90s and 2000s the CIA did not take gay guys for training. Maybe they made an exception with him because he is a Vanderbilt, but back in the 90s/2000s when Cooper would have been young enough to go into the CIA, I don’t think they would have let a gay guy go through the training. The thinking was still that gay people were a security risk (since they could be blackmailed, as they were in the closet). How could Cooper have become CIA?
I’ve never watched Alex Jones before or heard him talk. He has a really nice broadcasting setup though. A real studio and everything. I really never watch any talking heads. I also don’t like listening to the radio. I know some people like watching/listening to this stuff, but I just can’t take it.
Now, he’s talking about how Obama gave the Internet to the UN. What’s going to happen is that everything is going to start being censored, because the UN does not respect our First Amendment. This is just Democrats turning over American sovereignty to globalists. Taking away the Internet is the first step.
226amCT = Alex Jones is talking about the debates being rigged and how they had to admit later that, YES, Trump’s mic was defective. Even though the Media made fun of him for saying his mic was defective. And then they had to admit it was defective.
Alex Jones says that Anderson Cooper overthrew Middle Eastern countries. Why does he say that? I’ve seen Anderson Cooper out and about in New York City and spotted him on an escalator at a Whole Foods once. He didn’t look like a CIA agent to me. He’s a really nelly, fussy kind of gay guy. I don’t know if that makes a good CIA agent. Maybe it does. But that guy is no Jason Bourne.
230amCT = Alex Jones speculates on what the release will be. He thinks it will be about Hillary plotting to kill Assange. Maybe something about Benghazi. Or Hillary telling the Media what to say and do. Hillary telling David Brock and Megyn Kelly and other people what to do and them saying “sure, I’ll do that.” Hillary and the EU and UN preparing the collapse of the border to bring in millions of Muslim colonists to Europe. Jones thinks that half of what he has will come out now and then more will come out a week or two before the election. Once a week something coming out.
Then Alex Jones started talking about being proud of himself for working hard and being awake at 1am. He says that Trump is going to win the election unless it is stolen, but if it is stolen Hillary is so sick they won’t be able to hide that. The globalists will try to derail Trump and will pull something horrible in the next 34 days. The globalists won’t allow him to be president because he will stop the globalist takeover of America.
236amCT = Talking about how they can’t find any Hillary supporters anywhere. 200 or 300 people show up at her rallies. They can’t even find any supporters of hers in campaign offices in Austin or Cleveland. No one likes her.
When he says things like that, it brings back memories of the 2008 campaign. None of us could get people to like her then either. Especially in Iowa. Boy, people in Iowa hated her in 2008. And I wonder what they say and think now, with so much more to talk about. It was really hard campaigning for her because people had such a dislike of her.
239amCT = Now he’s talking about Paul Joseph Watson. I swear, that man. Hubba hubba. I have such a crush on Paul Joseph Watson, I can’t even tell you. I wish he had a gay twin brother. That man is fantastic.
242amCT = The same neocons that are part of the Bush Dynasty are all people who surround Hillary. Jeb Bush and Hillary would be the same person as president. The Clintons/Bushes are one and the same now.
244amCT = Now he’s talking about something called “nutraceuticals” and “Hillary for Prison Shirts.” He says he wants to wound the globalist dragon.
246amCT = Says people in Germany are getting ready for the broadcast. Also says that 40 Million people in Russia are having nuclear drills because they believe that Hillary wants to go to war with Russia for some reason.
250amCT = Says that evil is rising. George Soros funds the Left. The Right is not funded by anyone, which is true. The Left has such an advantage because it gets all that Soros money. Jones says, just watch the Media invent some crisis later today so people won’t know about what was said at the WikiLeaks press conference.
300amCT = Okay, now for real it’s going to start. For reals.
Before they get to the really good stuff, they are going to do a retrospective of everything that WikiLeaks has done. So I think this will go for like 2 hours. Buckle up, buttercups. We are in this for the long haul.
They have their delicious refreshing mineral water ready. Then some woman starts speaking and she says she is going to show a PowerPoint.
Alex Jones says that someone is going to do cyber attacks on this press conference to keep the secrets.
WikiLeaks is showing a video of the State Department and Media making fun of people for questioning what the government does.
Alex Jones says that the AP is sabotaging the audio so you can’t hear it properly. They are all doing it on purpose, he says.
Okay, so the WikiLeaks video is going through things that WikiLeaks exposed through the years. I bet this video will be up if you want to watch it later. They are up to the “Cablegate” leaks, which embarrassed the state department. Then the Stratfor spying…where Stratfor is a company that spies on people for Dow Chemical. Then something about Syria and then about how Angela Merkel is friends with Ban Ki Moon at the UN, but she says she’s not. Then stuff about Debbi Wasserman Schultz rigging the Democrat primaries.
The video is cutesy-tunes, like those JibJab videos that they used to make. WikiLeaks says it published 10 million secret documents.
There will be about 40 minutes of this WikiLeaks history stuff until Julian Assange comes on. Personally, I don’t find any of this interesting. It’s like watching some European company do a shareholders meeting.
They wanted you to watch all this boring stuff before they give you the good stuff, which makes me worry if they even have anything good to reveal or if this is all a tease. Like how the local news makes you think something big has happened, but then you watch the whole broadcast and it’s nothing.
Then Julian Assange comes out and has nothing to say. It was all a trick and a joke!
Geesh…staying up late and watching this for nothing!
What I thought about this later in the morning when I had some time to sleep: honestly, I think this was a huge mistake on WikiLeaks’ part that will haunt them forever. This was Geraldo Rivera and Al Capone’s vault.
Do you remember that? Back in April of 1986, Al Capone had this hugely hyped tee-vee special called “The Mystery of Al Capone’s Vaults.” It was two hours long. People watched it on the edge of their seats. It was Geraldo going down into the bowels of this creepy old hotel in Chicago, the Lexington Hotel. There were secret tunnels and hidden rooms…and what were supposed to be Al Capone’s lost vaults. Geraldo teased it like it was the opening of King Tut’s Tomb, where there could be a fortune in gold and jewels or stacks of cash hidden away in the vaults and revealed for the first time live on tee-vee.
The whole thing was a giant tease that led to nothing, of course. In the last moments of the show, Geraldo opened the vaults and there was just clutter and junk and I think an empty bottle. That was it. There wasn’t a genie in the bottle or anything. It wasn’t a magic bottle or a portkey to another dimension or anything. It was just a dusty old bottle.
I remember how angry people were about the whole thing afterwards. Everyone felt duped. Back in 1986, there were three channels and we had no Internet. After dinner, everyone watched the tee-vee. Some people even sat in front of the tee-vee eating, watching Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy and the local news before prime time network shows started. I mention this because if Geraldo pulled a stunt like this today, not many people would be upset and they would just mock him a little the next day.
But back in 1986, pulling this stunt was hugely upsetting. It was a good three or four days before people would stop grumbling about being tricked like they were. I remember coming to grade school the next day and all the kids were talking about how mad their parents were and how it sucked that the vault was empty. Geraldo really toyed with people’s emotions with this stunt. Everyone wanted it to be like King Tut’s Tomb with the ending to the special being a huge treasure trove of riches.
For the life of me, I don’t know what those WikiLeaks fools were thinking. They wanted to have a 10 year Anniversary special, but they are too stupid to realize that no one really cares that they’ve been around for 10 years. People only care about WikiLeaks if they are delivering good scoops.
I think European people are tone deaf sometimes. I know that Julian Assange is Australian, so maybe they’re like this too. Most of the WikiLeaks people seem to be European though, and I don’t think they understand how angry people get when they expect some kind of big reveal…but they get Al Capone’s empty vaults instead. This is why Europeans usually come across like naive children to me, or like the Eloi from The Time Machine. They don’t really seem to understand reality and they live in a utopian bubble of how they want the world to be and how they’d like it to be, instead of how it really is. I think most of them are fools.
I am usually up until 3am or 4am anyway because I teach English over the Internet to learners in Japan and South Korea and I’m on their schedule. So staying up that late waiting for this big WikiLeaks reveal was no big deal to me, as I wasn’t planning on being asleep at that time to begin with. But it did really suck sitting and waiting…and having the time pushed back an hour from when we were told it was going to start. So, WHOOPS!, it’s not going to start at 2am, but it’s going to start at 3am. And now they tell us that you have to sit through slide shows that look like they were made by high schoolers…and the whole thing has the feel of an amateur cable access show…and I almost thought it was going to include a pitch for time shares in Orlando. Then, Julian Assange comes out and he’s just being cocky and arrogant and has no news to tell and no big story to break. Just gloating about things they’ve done in the past and self-congratulating.
Somewhere, Geraldo Rivera must have been laughing his head off. Finally, someone made a bigger ass of themselves with an ill-conceived attention-getting tee-vee stunt than he did.
I don’t believe for a moment that they had something big but they were too scared to run it. No, this was always about them getting people to sit through their slide shows.
This was ALWAYS about these idiots thinking they could leverage interest in a new scandal into making people watch the slideshows they wanted to show us about WikiLeaks’ history. They wanted a big event Anniversary Special…and the tease/trick was the promise of these big reveals that never materialized.
It was a really stupid move that’s going to haunt WikiLeaks forever. But they are too dumb to know that, probably.
