Russian Hack Investigation

Former Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton seems to want to end her biggest run of her life with the biggest lie of her life. Mrs. Clinton started with an attack towards rival Donald Trump alleging that he is spreading conspiracy theories and smearing our election process (which is true) – but now she is claiming that her shady emails where leaked by Russia. She came up with this theory quickly after the emails were leaked – making the election all the more juicy. The biggest let down from this whole conspiracy is that we, the voter, have never heard any proof. Even the electoral college members wanted a briefing before they voted, and received none. So is there any truth behind the Russian Conspiracy?

Lets recap. Beginning in the Democratic Primaries, emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton were leaked to Wikileaks. The topics of the emails are dark, and shady ranging from racist comments to actually conspiring against Bernie Sanders to ensure Clinton’s victory. Even though the emails were legit, Hillary and the DNC cried fowl. So it seems that you can be corrupt and vindictive as long as it is in an email.

Fast forward past Clinton’s and Trump’s victory and more emails are released revealing the sinister workings of the Democratic party. And just as Trump can do anything without blame, Clinton avoided any blame for her emails because she alleged that the Russians hacked her – no mention of her private email server where anyone could probably hacked and no mention of the possibility that a DNC staffer or a Bernie supporter might have leaked the emails (Imagine that person watching the news as everyone thinks Russia leaked the emails). No, Clinton went straight to a Cold War era conspiracy – and now everyone is buying into it without any sort of evidence. No one seemed to make much noise over the claim until Hillary actually lost – then half the country, including President Obama and government agencies started investigating.

Now, imagine for a moment: half the country, the White House, and the FBI and CIA are trying to find proof – and trying to bar Trump from the White House. If this sort of power found evidence of Russian hackers, wouldn’t it benefit them and be a huge moral responsibility to notify us? What are they waiting for? Just recently, the CIA director John Brennan reported, “Earlier this week, I met separately with FBI [Director] James Comey and DNI Jim Clapper, and there is strong consensus among us on the scope, nature, and intent of Russian interference in our presidential election” Both directors and agencies refused to comment on that report. But is there a better time to come our and stop Trump than today? Today is that last chance with the Electoral College voting.

Not only did the Electoral College voter beg for a briefing on the Russian investigation, but Trump, and Wikileaks, and Russia, and half of America is begging for some sort of evidence. Wikileaks even offered to host the evidence, “Obama should submit any Putin documents to Wikileaks to be authenticated to our standards if he wants them to be seen as credible” Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said it was, “indecent of the United States to groundlessly accuse Russia of intervention in the US election campaign” Mr. Peskov continues, “They should either stop talking about that or produce some proof at last. Otherwise it all begins to look unseemly”

Yes, there seems to be some friendship between Trump and Putin – but Trump has dozens of other foreign friendships just as capable to hack into emails. And yes, there is no doubt Putin would rather have Trump in the White House than Clinton. But that has no bearing on if the claim is true. I, and any reasonable reader want to know what really happened. Maybe someone needs to hack their emails to figure what is going on in our own country. Any claim asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence – and I hope we see some evidence soon.

Now, I am posting this as my last post of the year as I take an hiatus over the holidays. So if it comes out that Russia really did hack the DNC emails – I will be the first to admit that. But keep in mind, whoever hacked the emails, Clinton and the DNC still said all those things. They really conspired against members of their own party. They still betrayed and miss presented their own voters. And Clinton still challenged our election system without revealing her proof.

be on the look out for one of two possibilities: it is proven that Russia has hacked our election, or Clinton is a liar. If the trend proves consistent – it is far more likely to be the later of the two.

Rigged Election: Can it be True?

Hearing claims that the United States election system is “rigged” is nothing new to 2016 and – seeing that the claims always come from loons – I always disregarded it. But, as the election continues on… I am slowly thinking otherwise. Could the election be rigged? Of course not. But it is absolutely unfair and undemocratic.

Claiming that the election is rigged is such an outlandish statement only because “rigged” infers that there is a plan – an agenda – behind the election. People who claim the election is rigged (the far right and far left) seem to think that there is an invisible hand deciding the fate of each election. Those same people who kicked and screamed that Obama was an outsider are the same people who now think Obama is the system. No matter what happens, conspirators claim the system is rigged. This is how you play tennis without the net.

The very first hint of an unfair election was the Hillary – Sanders conflict. Not to mention the way Bernie and his delegates were treated during the primaries, and the Super Delegate system; Wikileaks has provided us with absolute proof the Democratic party was actively plotting against Bernie Sanders. Within the Democratic Party emails, there were remarks such as:

 

“If she outperforms this polling, the Bernie camp will go nuts and allege misconduct. They’ll probably complain regardless, actually” regarding New Hampshire primaries

“Wondering if there’s a good Bernie narrative for a story, which is that Bernie never ever had his act together, that his campaign was a mess,” said DNC official Mark Paustenbach

“This could make several points difference with my peeps. My Southern Baptist peeps would draw a big difference between a Jew and an atheist” said DNC CFO Brad Marshall.

 

Yes, they were actively planning to use Sander’s religion against him. We can no longer assume the Democratic party is actually Democratic. No rational human being can ever say this process is Democratic. In addition to the primary scam, the issue of Debbie Shultz comes into play. She defiantly had a hand in the Wikileak scandal, but now there is talk as to her connection with Hillary’s pick for VP. Hillary was able to get Debbie Shultz in position of party chairman – in return, she was able to influence the primary to get Clinton the nomination. To get Shultz that position, she had to get someone to step down – that was Tim Kaine. Now that Shultz took the hit, Tim Kaine is the Vice Presidential nominee. That is the theory anyway – and it is far more believable now that we know the Democratic party has a flawed system.

The actions by the Democratic party is extreme contemptible, immoral, and completely unfair to the candidates and the voters. The party has an agenda to be precisely un-democratic and they should be ashamed. There should be action against them to protect the will of the people. The party seems to have gotten away without any trouble.

Now, with the pitiful excuse for a primary is over, the humble voter has to wonder: how can we be sure the election itself isn’t rigged. There seems to be no way to know that third parties are being treated fairly. Despite one’s political views, fair elections are absolutely necessary for a democratic country. Without one – we are in a banana republic – unsure that our votes mean anything.

I am not saying that we should be jumping to the extreme conclusion that the whole system is worthless, just that we must take all conspiracies and information with a grain of salt – or rather a cellar of salt.
