Did a revolt within the NYPD force the FBI’s hand on the Clinton email saga?

UPDATE: In a feat of public service the FBI conclusively reviewed 650,000 emails in 9 days and clears Clinton, and say they repeat their July determination which found that she was “extremely careless” with  “highly classified information” and will not be charged. The Clinton’s made $57 million while Hillary was Secretary of State. Over half the people who met with Clinton paid money to the Clinton Foundation as well which has received over $2 billion in donations in total. Despite these obvious possible conflicts of interest, she used insecure private computers to email foreign leaders and companies that she arranged deals with on behalf of the USA, then destroyed 33,000 emails with Bleachbit after they were subpoenaed. The FBI is not confident there was intent to obstruct justice.

_______________________________

The completely unconfirmed but very interesting scuttlebutt is that the emails are staggeringly incriminating and the FBI re-investigation is being driven by whistleblowers within the US — specifically at the NYPD.

US election logoAs I said before, books will be written about this week. Great movie plot.

Here’s a man speaking below called  Steve Pieczenik, who talks of a coup and a counter coup going on in the US at the moment (“coup” meaning a play for power and control which is peaceful at present). He’s a former deputy assistant secretary of state. None of this is confirmed, and some of the claims coming about about the Weiner cache are the most radioactive hairy stuff, which I won’t repeat here. See the Breitbart article. “NYPD Ready to Make Arrests in Anthony Weiner Case”. There were 15,000 comments under it last time I looked, but no other outlets are picking up the story.

Allegedly the NYPD got Weiner’s laptop first, and it was they who pushed the FBI to go public “or else.” Blackwater founder and former Navy SEAL Erik Prince told Breitbart that he has a source in the NYPD, who claims they found “damning information” and if ” Hillary Clinton is elected president, we will have a constitutional crisis that we have not seen since, I believe, 1860.”  The Dept of Justice is allegedly pushing back fiercely to stop the NYPD going public.

If the Clintons have been very naughty we would expect some of the patriots in the FBI and groups like the NYPD to be outraged and motivated to expose that — they risk their lives for their country and fellow citizens. That doesn’t mean the claims are true… but if the emails are incriminating, and players within both the NYPD and the FBI have copies it will be impossible to put this genie back in the bottle.

And we thought this election could not get any hotter.

Who is Pieczenik?

From Wikipedia on Steve R. Pieczenik, MD, PhD. He  is an American psychiatrist and former United States Department of State official. He comes with Harvard training and an MIT doctorate in international relations. Apparently his specialty at one time was hostage negotiations. A slice of his Wikipedia entry suggests he really might be very well connected to the insiders at the FBI. He speaks Russian, Spanish and French, apparently knows Assad, and has treated CIA employees.

“Pieczenik was Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance and James Baker. His expertise includes foreign policy, international crisis management and psychological warfare. He served the presidential administrations of Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush in the capacity of deputy assistant secretary.

Steve McIntyre is digging through the email saga at ClimateAudit

McIntyre has looked closely at the legality of deleted emails with regard to Steyn and Mann. So he was already well prepped. He remarks on an interesting case  where the law was interpreted very strictly, and the DOJ attorney was none other than James Comey who is now the FBI head. The case was  U.S. v Quattrone (which McIntyre discussed in detail here). He notes that in that case Quattrone sent a fairly tame email which the legal department advised against the very next day. No emails were deleted, yet Quattrone was charged with obstruction of justice, and after some years  “an appeal court ruled that a trier of fact could have concluded that Quattrone acted with a “corrupt intent”. McIntyre notes that “the DOJ attorney who had found corrupt intent in Quattrone’s actions was James Comey, the present director of the FBI.”

McIntyre also comments on the way these emails may have ended up on Weiner’s laptop:

Information on the provenance of these emails is thus far sketchy, but the following seems plausible:

A source close to Anthony Weiner’s legal team tells Bret Baier that it seems the laptop containing those emails was used to backup his estranged wife’s Smartphone contacts. In the process, the computer apparently backed up all of the emails as well.

There has been speculation that they might include 32K Hillary emails that had been deleted.  However, it seems to me that it is far more plausible that they will turn out to include (or even be) the Huma emails from clintonemail.com, accidentally backed up prior to their deletion from the Clinton server in March 2015…

I note JeffID at the AirVent is also writing on the US election dramas too. Skeptics don’t like corruption…

    OH good, glad to see this up.

    Summary -New Developments in Clinton Scandal

    Blackwater founder and former Navy SEAL Erik Prince: NYPD Ready to Make Arrests in Anthony Weiner Case

    …“They found State Department emails. They found a lot of other really damning criminal information, including money laundering, including the fact that Hillary went to this sex island with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Bill Clinton went there more than 20 times. Hillary Clinton went there at least six times,” he said.

    “The amount of garbage that they found in these emails, of criminal activity by Hillary, by her immediate circle, and even by other Democratic members of Congress was so disgusting they gave it to the FBI, and they said, ‘We’re going to go public with this if you don’t reopen the investigation and you don’t do the right thing with timely indictments,’” Prince explained.

    “I believe – I know, and this is from a very well-placed source of mine at 1PP, One Police Plaza in New York – the NYPD wanted to do a press conference announcing the warrants and the additional arrests they were making in this investigation, and they’ve gotten huge pushback, to the point of coercion, from the Justice Department, with the Justice Department threatening to charge someone that had been unrelated in the accidental heart attack death of Eric Garner almost two years ago. That’s the level of pushback the Obama Justice Department is doing against actually seeking justice in the email and other related criminal matters,” Prince said….

    Also this quote:

    “What’s in the emails is staggering and as a father, it turned my stomach,” the NYPD Chief said. “There is not going to be any Houdini-like escape from what we found. We have copies of everything. We will ship them to Wikileaks or I will personally hold my own press conference if it comes to that.”

      Just from the Podesta Wikileak you have some very damning information.

      “Spirit Cooking”: Wikileaks Publishes Most Bizarre Podesta Email Yet

      In the email, Tony asks his brother if he is able to attend a “Spirit Cooking dinner.” He says the artist hosting the dinner, Marina Abramovic, “wants [him] there,” and a previous email in the thread shows the artist requesting John’s presence at her New York City home.
      Abramovic, a Serbian performance artist, has apparently conducted these dinners since the 1990s. While the title “Spirit Cooking dinner” suggests they constitute a harmless – if not spiritual — practice, some components of the “recipes” are raising alarm.

      …The Podestas’ “Spirit Cooking” dinner?

        Thank you, Gail, for exposing the dark secrets behind:

        _ 1.) The Climategate emails in Nov 2009, and then
        _ 2.) Trump’s candidacy for President in Nov 2016 !

        The Climategate scandal led us to realize that society is so distracted by technological, physical connections to a false reality that our deeper, more fundamental spiritual connections to reality are mostly ignored – except when we are individually alone with Nature.

        The Investivation Reporter, Jon Rappoport, deserves credit for realizing the MATRIX OF DECEIT, designed by globalists (United Nations & United National Academies of Sciences) to hide reality from the public long before I finally realized – the Sun’s pulsar core is the creator and sustainer of every atom, life and planet in the solar system!

        Reality is consistent with both science and spirituality.

          Thank you, Steve R. Pieczenik (MD, PhD), for confirming that COINCIDENCE unmasks REALITY:

          1. On 13 June 1936, exactly four months before I was born, a 19-year old student at the Imperial University of Tokyo – Kazuo Kuroda – realized a ~30 year-old nuclear physicist did not understand Aston’s lecture on nuclear energy.

          2. In January 1956, the late Dr. Elizabeth Cochran (PhD, Columbia University) forced this high-school drop-out to memorize major parts of the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution at Pittsburg College in Pittsburg, KS.

          3. In April 1956 at the Annual AGU meeting in Washington, DC, a recent emigrant to the US from Japan whose name had been changed to Paul K. Kuroda presented evidence self-sustaining nuclear reactors burned on Earth 2 Ga ago.

          4. In May 1960, the late Professor Paul K. Kuroda (PhD, Imperial University of Tokyo) recruited this now almost 24 year-old graduate student to accept a PhD research assignment on “The Origin of the Solar System and Its Elements.”

          5. These events helped me “see” the Sun’s pulsar core and technological connections to a false, NAS-created-reality that hid out deeper, fundamental connections to the Creator – except when we are individually alone with Nature.

          “Reality is consistent with both science and spirituality.”

          To me philosophical ‘reality’, must includes all physical, and all non physical, even concepts never conceptualized by anyone, and are part of philosophical ‘reality’. To throw away ‘real’ concepts of ‘God’, ‘fantasy’, and childhood dreams results in denial of the “is”, of which we “are”. That said; there is no reason not to carefully distinguish between the triplet of; physical, fantasy, and fraud!!
          Can someone here please provide “definition with distinction” between those members of such philosophical ‘reality’?
          All the best! -will-

            Will, you can experience reality for yourself by turning off technologically advanced connections to false reality (Internet, Email, Phone, TV, Video, etc) and going alone to experience Nature for yourself.

            Then you will discover that you were part of a beautiful, bountiful and benevolent universe that operated very well before the Industrial Revolution connected humanity to the false reality of Internet, Email, Phone, TV, Video, etc.

      Sounds like someone has been told to pull their head in….the truth was starting to hurt Hellary too much….

      http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-11-07/live-coverage-us-election-trump-clinton-campaign/8000476

      The truth will eventually come out though….

      OriginalSteve

      Actually, it occurs to me that the NYPD and the FBI may have a vested interest in all this – if Hellary is she appears, then the FBI would have a lot of trouble dealing with the reality of having to protect her.

      Think about it – it would like being a body guard for someone you knew clearly wasnt worth protecting and would happily throw to the mob and have proper justice done…..

      10

      • #
        OriginalSteve

        Another thought this time with the police ( applies equally here and in the USA ) – if Hellary is actually elected, if you were a cop sworn to defend justice and orders from up high come down to start arresting innocent people as a form of political pay back, would you obey those orders?

        I think that the NYPD and FBI are pushing hard so they *dont* have to do something repugnant that they know will come if Hellary is elected…..

        As Hellary is a Communist, and communists love gun control, with 100 million guns in the USA and the population not wanting her nor respecting her wanting to respect her authority, it will be an interesting times….. the cops and the FBI may just have to walk away from being the arms that enact brutalisation of the people of the USA.

        That said, the NWO are open to having foreign UN troops do their dirty work inside the USA – when that day comes, I’d hate to be a UN trooper – they will have a very short life and we may see a public hanging on Capitol Hill. I hope it never comes to this ( and I dont advocate it – at all ) knowing how the americans are with their sense of justice, well….anything is possible.

        The protective detail is provided by the Secret Service which is an institution unto itself with departments that handle many areas of national security.

        http://www.secretservice.gov/about/overview/

        By all reports, the Clintons are very unpopular amongst their protective detail due to the covering up they are forced to continually provide plus their general attitude of entitlement. And the same appears to apply to the Obamas.

    A very forceful and confronting statement by this fellow, Steve Pieczenik.

    I hope it works out for the American people and by that I mean a Trump election victory but more importantly a noticeable reduction in corrupt practices, at least for a while.

    That America can approach it’s problems like this is an object lesson that Indonesia could learn from.

    This is a repeat of the unbelievable news of two days ago, confirmation. It has not gone away. Underage sex was the new claim, for both Bill and Hilary. The idea that Hilary was the wronged wife may just be turned upside down.

    However this speculation about Weiner backing up his wife’s emails does not make much sense. I cannot imagine why he would do that.

    Rather I think it more likely that Weiner thought his computer was clean, wiped. After all, he had to hide his activities too. That they found his wife’s correspondence and emails points rather to the idea that it was originally her computer, not properly cleaned. So there will be a lot of Huma’s correspondence too. The NYPD and FBI are expert at finding stuff on hard discs. They have all the tools.

    Hilary’s computer was wiped professionally and illegally after being subpoenaed, but the evidence was destroyed. Possibly Huma’s as well, but no one thought to check Weiner’s computer. It may have copies of all the 30,000 missing emails plus a lot more personal correspondence as Huma went everywhere Hilary went. Plus all of Weiner’s evidence as well. Jail? We are talking high treason, not just being a bit careless. Two at least would have been very familiar with the obligations of Secretary of State and secrecy provisions. Sorry will not do.

    It would be just like their nutty savings to reuse an old computer and save a few dollars when the hard disc at least should have been destroyed. Good fast computer. Why throw it out? The penny pinching of the rich plus the fact that Huma is on oath saying she has surrendered all the devices she used. Maybe.

      If Weiner has copies of Top Secret documents which came from Huma which came from Hilary, where does it end?

      The communications of the Secretary of State would be the most secure in the world, apart from the President himself. They should be unreadable even by the FBI or NYPD and unbreakable by anything less than a super computer with illegal access to the decryption software.

      It is inconceivable that she operated her communications in plain English from her garage for both her private and Secretary of State functions? The emails were sent in plain English to Yahoo so they could be printed at home? What?

      What is the point of all that technology and super encryption and encrypted channels for the Secretary of State if her assistant’s husband can get copies of State Department emails and foreign emails in English?

      Sex criminals, millions in bribes, destroying evidence, no security for top secret documents and open to hacking by anyone? Do the Clinton’s believe they above the law? I hope it is not true, not because the Clintons are great people, but because it is a sign of a terrible situation and especially if they are shielded by Barack Obama and his State Department.

      Hilary asked for a statement. One should be made.

        You can add her leaving classified documents in hard copy in hotels rooms and cabs. This woman is a walking security agent’s nightmare. That is why all the alphabet agencies rank and file want no part of a Clinton in the White House.

      However this speculation about Weiner backing up his wife’s emails does not make much sense. I cannot imagine why he would do that.

      I thought Huma and Weiner shared that laptop at some stage?
      I presumed Weiner may have taken it with him when they separated?

      I’m not sure Weiner doing the backing up makes instant sense but Huma may well have left her email account on the shared laptop and that would make sense. If he was logging into his own email he may not have known her account was there at all.
      It was suggested that her phone was synched to the laptop and that is entirely plausible. Maybe Weiner knew that or maybe he discovered it after they split up.
      Their separation also might explain why Huma thought she had handed over all her devices to the FBI.

      Alternatively it makes sense in the light of all the incriminating stuff was in a folder named “Life Insurance” and that if he were ever to come under threat from Huma or Clinton Inc. he could let them know he has the goods on them?
      Remember Weiner was engaged in some perversions of his own, too.
      A tangled web . .

    One of the most refreshing reactions from Germany this year, largely in response to the influx of illiterate migrants from foreign cultures, has been the public voice of the German Police Union. It worked very hard to break through the media wall surrounding the events of New Years’ Eve in Cologne as well as a number of subsequent calamities that the government and a complicit media have tried to cover up.

    Most of the cops in the western, still-civilized world seem to go into the job with the best of intentions; not to bully the public or to make money from crime. When they’re confronted with crime and incivility on a scale beyond their capacity, with the government imitating the three wise monkeys and the media deliberate looking the other way, then their union becomes a first port of call. As government officials, they cannot personally voice an opinion that differs from the law or the law makers of the day. They must act lawfully.

    Most of the American electorate does not remember Watergate. If they have an impression, it is of two liberal actors as heroes
    vs. the evil incarnate of Richard Nixon. But Hoffman & Redford didn’t tell the story of a paralyzed country; of Howard Baker &
    Sam Irvin & Deep Throat. The provenance of Deep Throat is especially interesting given the number of folks in the FBI feeling supressed.

    Journalists, as individual and as a class, have taken a beating in this election. There will be a few who have buyers remorse at being a wholly owned
    subsidiary of the DNC, and will pursue the story. If the evidence is there, we’ll likely see it. Nixon resigned. Ford stabilized.

    I’d bet Hillary will force the process; she’s not a stranger to impeachment & 67 votes in the senate is really hard.
    Unless so many others in the party are tainted by the process that the risk of an open trial is too much.

    If there is a trail of Clinton, claims of vote fraud alleged in the emails will also be taken seriously.
    And old cases like Senators Franken & Stevens will arise (Franken elected by Felons voting in numbers large enough to swing his election,
    Stevens derails by what was later adjudged proecutorial misconduct.

    We may have made a bit of a mess of this.

    One thing is for sure.

    “Climate Change” didn’t seem to make the cut as a meaningful force in this election.
    …unless the email scandal extends to the ‘Richard Windsors’ of the world. One can hope.

    I am a strong defender of the ideals expressed in the US Declaration of Independence and in the US Constitution, especially the first ten (10) Amendments to the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the statement in the US Declaration of Independence on the right of the people to alter or abolish any government that becomes destructive of the basic rights of the people that established our government.

    I certainly hope we will NOT be at that point when the votes are counted and reported. Yet, it is reassuring to know that some members of the NYPD and then FBI are as concerned as I am personally about the constitutional crisis facing our nation if Hillary Clinton tries to take control of this nation after an “official” miscount of the vote.

    May the election restore the faith of the public in the validity of US constitutional government!

      Remember, Hillary is innocent until proven guilty. And ideally the US voters would know the outcome of that before the election. If only she hadn’t deleted all the emails that would have cleared all this up months ago…

        While I agree with the legal principle, I think there is overwhelming evidence against her. Guiliani reckons he’d easily be to obtain a conviction just on the grounds that she destroyed government records.

        The number of charges that could be laid against her and her cronies seem to be staggering.

        I can only hope against hope that Trump carries the day and facilitates a proper investigation into the whole sordid mess.

    Hans Von Spakovsky: ‘We Know for a Fact There Are Non-Citizens Registered and Voting All Over the Country’

    For those who think, well, it can’t be that big of a problem – look, two years ago, three professors – actually from Virginia’s universities – did a study based on congressional survey data, and they estimated that in the 2008 election, when Obama was elected for the first time, they estimated that 6.4 percent of the non-citizens who are in the U.S. illegally voted in that election. 6.4 percent! That was enough, they pointed out, to potentially have swung North Carolina, which Obama won by a very small margin, only 14,000 votes,” von Spakovsky said.

    6% plus all the other methods, like multiple voting as shown in the Veritis Vid, are certainly enough to see that your candidate ‘wins’

    Clinton regularly instructed Marina Santos to print government emails.
    Santos, a Filipina immigrant, worked at Clinton’s residence in Washington.
    Clinton asked her aides to forward material on to Santos to print at home.
    They included classified materials that Santos didn’t have clearance for.

    The housekeeper also had access to the sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF) – an extremely secure room agents set up at Whitehaven.
    Santos did not have clearance for the SCIF, yet ‘collected documents from the secure facsimile machine for Clinton’, according to FBI notes.
    The bureau noted that Clinton periodically received the Presidential Daily Brief, a top secret document prepared by the CIA and other intelligence agencies.

    And the FBI notes show they knew about it!

        Anonymous claim to have conducted a poll of 1000 people in each of the fifty states.
        It is unskewed meaning the 1000 people in each State are selected from 1/3 Republican and 1/3 Democrat and 1/3 independent.
        The result is Trump 67% and Clinton 19%.

      Stephen, that is why they think no one would believe it and are relatively open about it.

      The elite really think they are completely above the law and can do as they please. They are so rich they do not have to work so they play power games and are easily enticed into depravity.

        Gail,

        I agree that the current global elites have too much power and need pegging back (too many of them are of the authoritarian left) but there is a huge difference between arrogance leading to carelessness on the one hand and criminality on the other.

        I was active in the Brexit movement and helped to produce ‘Brexit The Movie’ so my non-elite credentials are sound.

        It took a long time for our current elites to gain their dominance and it will take time for a new ‘elite’ to take over from them. Just being ‘the elite’ is not a failing in itself. Elites of various types led us from the stone age through the poverty and inequality of the 19th century to the relative global prosperity of the present day.

        We need to gradually encourage and cultivate a new type of politician.

        Such persons need to be non-authoritarian and yet find some sort of balance between the raw economic power of capitalism and the need to protect the unfortunate without encouraging the feckless, lazy and manipulative types who try to subsist on the back of others.

        I despair of Clinton and her ilk but am also wary of Trump who needs to become far more educated and humble if he is to govern a nation as influential as the USA.

        Ideally, the USA electoral system should provide the option of ‘neither of the above’ so that the present election can be scrapped and a new election scheduled with two more balanced personalities. Sadly, no chance of that.

        On balance I’d take the risk of Trump to break the current paradigm, hope that his advisors bring him under control, and await a more proficient, cultured individual at the end of Trump’s term of office.

        I’d like Trump to establish a better relationship with Putin but keep NATO strong and influential. In parallel, NATO must learn to accept that further eastward expansion into regions important to Russia is unwise and counterproductive.

        The EU needs to be abandoned altogether as a significant global player.

        Co-operating with Russia to stem the Middle East conflagration seems to me to be a priority even if Russia’s military brutality is anathema to our own relatively restrained military methods.

        I don’t see Putin as the sort of chap who would wish to spend Russian blood and wealth on invading East European nations who would resist occupation vigorously. He has no more stomach for holding down hostile populations in the long term than we would. His people would rebel as a result of the ever increasing flow of body bags to Moscow.

            How is an abuse of political position not a crime?

            Why are such obvious psychotics, immune from prosecution, but the non politic or lesser little people not?

            They are there to represent the general public, not pander to special interests with wads of cash, which is how the Clinton criminals have gained their unexplained wealth.

            This should be obvious to even the stupid (leftoid voters), but apparently not.

            With friends like the Goldman and Sachs of carbon credits criminal bankers, who needs the little people!

            The fact that she still breathes free air is a disgrace, and that this same individual is even allowed to run for the most powerful political position on the planet is the grandest of global absurdities.

                If the Donald fails with even half the voter’s support of the US with even with his high wealth as backup, then what chance of success has any of the little people got.

                You have to fight the battles you can win, not be an insignificant marytr!

                To fight a losing battle is tactically stupid, when the only outcome is to become cannon fodder.

                When most cannot see that their very freedoms are being systematically eroded away and conditioned to think that this is the new norm, and this very indoctrination is now taking place with even our preschoolers, then we are all well on the way to a doomed existence.

                The CAGW indoctrination and associated world wide propaganda is a prime example of this illness infecting all of society.

                But pockets of resistance are rising, such as Brexit, the Donald, One Nation, anti CAGW realists, and so on.

                But this is no fight that will be won overnight.
                The Leftoid/Marxist/Totalitarian diseased minds are too entrenched within the political,the banks,the presstitute media, and multinational racketeering corporations.

                A Trump election win would be a necessary first step to begin the fight back!

                That is to begin the ‘Draining of the Swamp’, and worldwide its a big swamp!

            You’d think that deleting emails in the face of a subpoena would be enough to establish intent.
            You’d think that going the extra mile in using BleachBit, an open source file shredder to ensure deleted emails stayed deleted in the face of a subpoena would be enough to establish intent.
            You’d think that physically destroying potentially incriminating devices with a hammer no less in the face of a subpoena would be sufficient to establish intent.
            Need I go on?

            I really hope Dire Tor Comey knows what he’s doing because he has a reputation for being a straight shooter. But to be honest, right now I wish that a senior FBI agent or NYPD officer who is close to retirement would just come out and spill the beans.

            Stephen,

            As I showed in another thread. INTENT is not part of the law Clinton broke. All that is required is the removal of classified material from a secure setting. For example some young guy took pictures of himself while on a nuclear sub with the equipment in the background. He had no INTENT on selling those pictures. He just wanted documentation to show his future children and grandchildren. The guy brought up Hillary Clinton’s “NO INTENT” at his trial and was told he was going to jail anyway.

            “He pleaded guilty in May to unauthorized detention of defense information and had faced five to six years in prison under federal sentencing guidelines.”

      Now we should see if the NYPD leaks (if they were leaks and not just hysterical rants) about the NYPD going public if the FBI failed, have any substance. I really doubt it.

      We’ve noticed that the NYPD, the FBI, WikiLeaks (or someone purporting to represent them) have all trumpeted public information dumps due “any time now” that will (variously) be a game-changer, or put xxx in jail, or …

      So far, crickets. Do not trust a single syllable from any meeja source.

        I agree. So far plenty of smoke but no gun.
        There’s no one ready to give testament to the validity of the emails and what they really say or mean. Apparently the people mentioned in the emails have no reply, people appearing in the images offer no explanation.
        Unless there is real reliable evidence little can be done.
        However as this unverified email information (and the interpretation of it) becomes wider known all who are implicated will feel the public pressure to explain and clear their name.

        Rumor, hearsay, and hysteria are a dangerous combination which so easily leads to real bloodshed. Witch-burnings and lynchings of old are testament to such public hysteria.

      When it comes to classified material, carelessness that results in possible divulgence IS criminal for the members of the US military, and those employed by the agencies, and departments which handle, use, or generate that material. However it seems that classified material mishandled or even intentionally broadcast or leaked by politicians is somehow less damaging because they never get prosecuted. I can’t name one US politician that has been prosecuted in my 61 year life time for such transgressions. Yet I have seen Army officers lose their clearances due to illicit affairs because of the potential for blackmail. I also saw a corporal in the Army be sentenced to prison for having sexual relations with a trainee. This is the double standard for the elite and it angers this former SF soldier that held a TS clearance at one time to look upon all politicians with an extremely jaundiced eye. We were forbidden from talking about things that were still classified even though they had long ago been published in open sources intended for public consumption!

      The only thing ‘deplorable’ is the possibility of the White House occupation by the Clinton criminals!

      Isn’t it incredible how 30,000 emails took months to investigate, but 650,000 only took a few days to check, just in the nick of time to exonerate ‘the Hitlery’!

      It’s the old ‘now you see ‘em, now you don’t’ trick.

      What a pathetic situation to see such an obvious criminal as ‘the Hitlery’ railroaded to the most powerful political position on the planet, with ‘Slick Willy’(responsible for the deregulation of the criminal banks which caused the GFC),also back on the White House prowl and no doubt back to his old tricks!

    From the top — “The Dept of Justice is allegedly pushing back fiercely to stop the NYPD going public….”

    And a bit more from that article.

    They found State Department emails. They found a lot of other really damning criminal information, including money laundering, including the fact that Hillary went to this sex island with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Bill Clinton went there more than 20 times. Hillary Clinton went there at least six times,” he said.

    “The amount of garbage that they found in these emails, of criminal activity by Hillary, by her immediate circle, and even by other Democratic members of Congress was so disgusting they gave it to the FBI, and they said, ‘We’re going to go public with this if you don’t reopen the investigation and you don’t do the right thing with timely indictments,’” Prince explained.

    “I believe – I know, and this is from a very well-placed source of mine at 1PP, One Police Plaza in New York – the NYPD wanted to do a press conference announcing the warrants and the additional arrests they were making in this investigation, and they’ve gotten huge pushback, to the point of coercion, from the Justice Department, with the Justice Department threatening to charge someone that had been unrelated in the accidental heart attack death of Eric Garner almost two years ago. That’s the level of pushback the Obama Justice Department is doing against actually seeking justice in the email and other related criminal matters,” Prince said….
    http://www.breitbart.com/radio/2016/11/04/erik-prince-nypd-ready-make-arrests-weiner-case/

    That is all from the founder of Blackwater. Also as I linked at the top a Police spokesman said “What’s in the emails is staggering and AS A FATHER, it turned my stomach,”

    So if the Comet Ping Pong Pizza joint in Hawaii is what the 4chan/reddit groups think it is, then Obama with his many trips to Hawaii may be tangled up in this too. He certainly had e-mails going to Clinton’s server.

    Reddit has the better summary.

    https://reddit.com/user/DumbScribblyUnctious?utm_content=user&utm_medium=post_embed&utm_name=9d53c8c2831c4e599793451a8662858b&utm_source=embedly&utm_term=5b1qtf

    Remember it is alleged that Epstein had videos from his plane and island to use as leverage. (A reasonable assumption given the situation.) Epstein tried to snare Donald Trump too at one point by inviting him to a party with under-aged girls but Trump smelled the set-up and left a few minutes after he arrived. This is why the Democrats AND Republicans do not want Trump in office they have no leverage on the guy.

    And Yes this is all weirder than snake shoes.

    So what ties does Comey have to Clinton? Plenty it seems.

    FBI Director Let Hillary Off the Hook. Now, We Know Why He Wouldn’t Talk About The Clinton Foundation.

    FBI Director James Comey was summoned before Congress to talk about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s emails. The man cut an imposing figure: Clean-cut, dressed in charcoal gray, a professional in every sense of the word.
    The mismatch between Comey’s damning testimony and his refusal to press for indictment against Mrs. Clinton baffles some political observers to this day.
    Did a private meeting between Attorney General Loretta Lynch, his superior at the Department of Justice, and former President Bill Clinton sway the decision? Are there any conflicts of interest the American people did not know about?
    FBI Director James Comey wouldn’t answer questions about the Clinton Foundation, as The New York Times reported in July….

    It has been learned since his Congressional testimony that a complex web of relationships ties James Comey to the Clinton Foundation. The first thing to know about James Comey is that before he became the FBI Director in 2013, he was a top executive at Lockheed Martin from October, 2005 until July 2, 2010.
    As former general counsel and vice president of Lockheed Martin, the defense contractor benefited under Comey’s leadership from a number of contracts awarded by Hillary Clinton’s State Department.
    Lockheed Martin has been one of the top defense contributors to the Clinton Foundation….

    The International Business Times published an extensive investigation of ties between defense contractors who donated to the Clinton Foundation and actions approved by Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

    The International Business Times published an extensive investigation of ties between defense contractors who donated to the Clinton Foundation and actions approved by Hillary Clinton’s State Department…..

    In 2013, the same year that he was appointed the FBI Director, James Comey became a board member, a director, and a member of the Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee for the controversial London-based bank HSBC.
    HSBC is a bank with close ties to the Clinton Foundation that lists among its clients Frank Giustra, a Canadian mining magnate with ties to a Russian uranium deal approved under Clinton’s State Dept., and six other major foundation donors listed in a report by The Guardian….

    Peter Comey is the “Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas” for DLA Piper.
    Interestingly, Peter Comey took out a mortgage on a home that is owned by James Comey. The $711,000 mortgage substantiates a financial relationship between James Comey and his brother.
    DLA Piper is the number six campaign contributor to Hillary Clinton’s political campaigns since 1989 with over $939,101 in total contributions. It has also given between $50,000-$100,000 to the Clinton Foundation. If the name DLA Piper looks familiar, it was the firm tasked with auditing the Clinton Foundation.

    According to Andrew Bolt, FBI Director Comey has now cancelled the new FBI investigation into the 350,000 emails, two days before the election.

    FBI Director James Comey has abruptly announced that a review of newly discovered emails sent or received by Hillary Clinton has not changed his conclusion that the Democrat should not face criminal charges.

    His announcement came in a letter to congressional lawmakers two days before Election Day.

    Again, nothing much said. Nothing to see here folks!

      BBC Sunnis and Shia: Islam’s ancient schism

      In the Middle East, Sunnis make up 90% or more of the populations of Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. ….Shia Muslims are in the majority in Iran, Iraq, Bahrain, Azerbaijan and, according to some estimates, Yemen…

      Council on Foreign Relations The Sunni-Shia Divide

      Two countries that compete for the leadership of Islam, Sunni Saudi Arabia and Shia Iran, have used the sectarian divide to further their ambitions. How their rivalry is settled will likely shape the political balance between Sunnis and Shias and the future of the region, especially in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Bahrain, and Yemen.

      Alongside the proxy battle is the renewed fervor of armed militants, motivated by the goals of cleansing the faith or preparing the way for the return of the messiah. Today there are tens of thousands of organized sectarian militants throughout the region capable of triggering a broader conflict….

      Shia identity is rooted in victimhood over the killing of Husayn, the Prophet Mohammed’s grandson, in the seventh century, and a long history of marginalization by the Sunni majority. Islam’s dominant sect, which roughly 85 percent of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims follow, viewed Shia Islam with suspicion, and extremist Sunnis have portrayed Shias as heretics and apostates

The company was run by Frank Rockefeller, the brother of oil magnate John D. Rockefeller, and among its clients were the railroads controlled by E. H. Harriman. The Bush and Harriman families would be closely associated at least until the end of World War II. In 1908, Rockefeller retired and Bush became president of Buckeye, a position he would hold until 1927, becoming one of the top industrialists of his generation. — WIKI

      Then there is the KEY meeting with President Bush just six weeks after 9/11 that shaped US polixy ever since. (The USA DOUBLED the # of immigrants from the middle east after 9/11 for example.)

      “…entirely concocted in Tel Aviv…”

      No, Tel Aviv is NOT supporting ISIS.

      The information Alfred provides is from a website that claims…

      “Since 2011, Israeli planes and helicopters have flown over a hundred verified sorties against the Syrian army and its allies, direct combat support for ISIS/ISIL units operating inside Syrian territory.”

      Nonsense! And here’s how one can know that.

      1. here’s some news…
      “Syria shot two surface-to-air missiles at Israeli jets—and they shot at the Israeli jets not even over their own air space.”

      Israel wasn’t even over Syria, and Syrians shot at them, and it made the news. If Israel were actually over Syria, there would be a lot more shooting at Israeli airplanes, and it would be reported in real news, not conspiracy websites like the one you referenced.

      2. There are the Russians to consider. If you think that there would have been no dog-fights with Russian aircraft, you are very naive. And the entire world would be screaming at Israel. Who needs the aggravation? As long as they are shooting at each other, and not at Israel, it’s not our business.

      So, from real news, you should know that the website you are using is being written by anti-Semitic propagandists.

      Finally, here’s some material on Huma Abedin that is more reliable.

        This is one of the problems created by a biased MSM.

        One can no longer get the news from MSM. It is more views than news. The BBC (the UK state broadcaster) spends most of its time interviewing its own correspondents/employees and presenting their opinions as if that was factual news. On top of that is editorial bias. The editors decide what to report on, and what not to reprot on. They also decide the slant to any report they want to make. There is no independent investigative journalism these days.

        As such MSM is becoming an irrelevance, and people are relying on the internet for news. But that too is angerous since much of what is on the internet is not fact, and has not been properly checked.

        You may be right that the story that I came accross is a hoax. If only teh MSM could do a better job one would not be left to trawl the internet for the ‘truth’ and to find out what the ‘political elite’ do not want the ordinary person to know.

    An insight into the rise and influence of John Podesta by Abby Martin.
    The depth and breadth of Podesta’s influence, movements, dealings and connections over a lifetime is quite breathtaking.

    It’s a long video at 23:50 minutes, but worth it IMHO . . . and I have a short attention span for this stuff. It’s highly condensed ‘connecting the dots’ info without the dramatic overtones of so many YouTubers. I tire of that rubbish and it only detracts from the credibility.

    Abby Martin also connects dots re US Govt. subsidies to renewable energy amongst many many other conflicts of interest and ‘clever’ albeit perhaps legal dealings in a world where ethics is just a word in a dictionary.

    I hadn’t realised it but John Podesta plays the well worn traditional role of King maker. He’s much more than a bit player in the wider Democrat circles. This gives some clarity as to why his emails are important.
    Notably, Abby Martin is no fan of Donald Trump either, and accepts AGW.

    A message for everyone from Clint Eastwood

    CLINT EASTWOOD AT 84 – PREPARING TO SAY GOOD-BYE

    My Twilight Years at 84…

    If you realize each day is a gift, you may be near my age. As I enjoy my twilight years, I am often struck by the inevitability that the party must end. There will be a clear, cold morning when there isn’t any “more.” No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat. It seems to me that one of the important things to do before that morning comes, is to let every one of your family and friends know that you care for them by finding simple ways to let them know your heartfelt beliefs and the guiding principles of your life so they can always say, “He was my friend, and I know where he stood.”

    So, just in case I’m gone tomorrow, please know this: I voted against that incompetent, lying, flip-flopping, insincere, double-talking, radical socialist, terrorist excusing, bleeding heart, narcissistic, scientific and economic moron currently in the White House! I won’t be voting for ‘that’ woman who is running to replace him with the same old s***.

    Participating in a gun buy-back program because you think that criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbors have too many kids.”

    Regards,

    Has anyone noticed references to Hillary’s body odour?

    It first came out in a Wikileak email from John Podesta to gruncom@aol.com. The subject line is “Hillary actions/unpleasant odor”.

    He describes it as “boiled cabbaqge, urine, and farts”.

    Alex Jones was interviewing one of Bill’s old girlfriends from Arkansas who maintains that Hillary stunk when she was a teenager. IN the same segment they are also talking about a foul smell that follows Obama around.

    6 Nov: Daily Caller: Peter Hasson: WikiLeaks Show Washington Post Writer Asked DNC For Anti-Trump Research
    Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank appears to have asked the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to do the majority of the research for a negative column he wrote about Donald Trump in April 2016.
    Milbank’s column was titled, “The Ten Plagues of Trump,” and featured a list of “outrageous things” said by Trump…
    Internal DNC emails suggest Milbanks asked for — and then leaned heavily on — DNC opposition research on Trump for the article…
    In the email — which was titled “research request: top 10 worst Trump quotes?” — Walker wrote, “Milbank doing a Passover-themed 10 plagues of Trump.”
    The DNC research team worked together to come up with a list of things Milbank could use that was provided to Walker…
    By press time, Milbank had not yet replied to a list of questions from The Daily Caller about his article and whether or not he used DNC research in crafting it.

    For those who remember reading Strauss and Howe “The Fourth Turning”, it occurs to me that reference is made to a white haired elder that appears fearlessly in every fourth turning.
    At the first American Revolution, it was an elderly gent that marched determinedly towards a column of British infantry.
    A similar event occurred during the first American Civil War, and again in the 1940′s.

    shallow & pathetic:

    7 Nov: ABC: Chris Uhlmann: US election: Donald Trump leads grassroots crusade against America’s ‘rigged’ system
    As he blitzed five states on Sunday, his well-rehearsed riffs gave voice to the many complaints heard in Logan County: the system is rigged by politicians, the media and Wall Street; you have been betrayed by people like Mrs Clinton, the archetypal political insider; and jobs have been exported, while crime and drugs have been imported through porous borders…
    Those voting for Mr Trump are older, poorer, whiter, less educated and live in the vast rural expanses…
    The truth is, the benefits of globalisation are largely reaped by the rich and the costs fall disproportionately on the poor.
    It is a truth that is slowly being recognised by policy makers from Washington to Canberra. But there is one more truth — they have no answers.
    Mr Trump does not have any answers either. If he was elected, his prescriptions would, no doubt, cause more pain and solve nothing.
    The elite consensus in the United States is that Mrs Clinton should win.
    The electoral map shows Mr Trump’s pathway to victory is narrow and demands that every 50-50 contest fall his way.
    What should disturb everyone is that a candidate as flawed as Mr Trump, a man repudiated by many in his own party, has run this race so close.
    An equally disturbing question is how will his movement react to defeat?
    The best hope is that the revolution remains quiet.

    novel length, but worth reading to see the depth of the disaffection, which is not being factored into the polls, or reported fully by the MSM:

    6 Nov: Breitbart: Julia Hahn: Hillary loses the left
    Yet, in the closing days of the 2016 campaign, the rift has been laid bare through a combination of WikiLeaks revelations, a series of high-profile endorsements for Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein from progressives like Marc Lamont Hill, Cornel West, and Susan Sarandon, as well as polling data that suggests Trump’s broad populist messaging is resonating with Democrat-leaning voters.
    Contrary to the narrative perpetuated by corporate media, many prominent liberals are now expressing their belief that installing Hillary Clinton, a “corporatist hawk,” in the White House is “the true danger” and would be “more dangerous” for progressive values, the well-being of the nation, and the stability of the world than would four years of a Donald Trump presidency.
    Recent reports have captured Clinton’s schism from her progressive base — highlighted, in part, by Trump’s decision to close the final days of the 2016 election season by campaigning in traditionally blue states like Michigan, Colorado, and Pennsylvania…

    jus saying, I have a comment in moderation.

    6 Nov: Breitbart: Joel B. Pollak: Trump Delivers Closing Argument to Thousands After Midnight in Virginia
    LEESBURG, Virginia — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump addressed a packed after-midnight rally at the Loudon Fairgrounds early Monday morning, in a speech he dubbed the “Midnight Special.”
    The text was Trump’s stump speech and closing argument — repealing Obamacare, “draining the swamp” of corruption, and building the “wall” — but the context was a room full of thousands of people, and many hundreds more outside, standing in the 45-degree cold for hours to hear his address…
    PIC: Tweet: Panoramic shot of #Leesburg #Virginia rally for #Trump at 12:30 a.m. Packed, overflowing, thousands after midnight…
    The rally had originally been scheduled for 9:30 p.m., and was packed long before that, but Trump ran late as he packed four earlier campaign rallies into an ambitious Sunday schedule, including rallies in Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
    As the traveling press arrived at Dulles International Airport, it was unclear, from afar, whether anyone would have stayed three hours overtime to hear Trump — especially on a school night, the night before a busy work week.
    Yet the hall was completely full, with supporters jostling to be near the front — and a large overflow outside.
    One of those on the barricades in the overflow section was Brianna Baker, 16, of Purcellville, Virgina, who insisted on coming to the rally with her mother. They had been at the fairgrounds since 7:00 p.m…
    Hillary Clinton had earlier decided not to air campaign advertisements in Virginia, since she presumed she would win there. But polls have been tightening, with one poll even showing Trump leading Clinton by three points in the state…

    looks like there could be plenty of cheering (to counter the tears) in Morocco if Trump wins!

    7 Nov: Guardian: Michael Slezak: Marrakech climate talks: giving the fossil fuel lobby a seat at the table
    Is it a conflict of interest to have representatives of coal and oil companies at the climate change discussions?
    As the world gathers in Morocco for the historic first meeting under the Paris agreement – called “COP22” but now also “CMA1” – it does so with the unprecedented involvement of corporate interests who have fought climate action around the world, funded climate change denial and whose fundamental interest is in extracting and burning as much fossil fuel as possible…
    As a result, representatives of companies such as ExxonMobil, Chevron, Peabody, BP, Shell and RioTinto will have unquestioned access to most discussions in Marrakech, will be called upon for advice and will be walking the corridors and holding private discussions with countries that are trying to move the world to stop consuming the products those companies have based their businesses on…
    The bodies through which those companies access the COP22 meetings have been detailed in a chart created by Corporate Accountability International. Groups such as the World Coal Association, the Business Council of Australia, Business Europe and Business Roundtable will represent the world’s biggest fossil fuel companies in the meetings through their “observer status”…
    “It’s hard to believe the World Coal Association is having conversations with delegates, encouraging them to more strictly regulate the coal industry,” Bragg says. “That’s completely against their interests. So what is their purpose in that space other than to continue to extract and burn coal?”…

    This has been making the rounds. It’s become difficult to find time enough to try to verify everything. But apparently something did force the FBI’s hand. And this is as credible as anything else I’ve seen. I get email by the ton with all sorts of theories and little green Martians are about the only thing I haven’t seen (exaggerated but not very much).

    I have suspected that the Clinton email server was going to be the biggest scandal of the century rivaled only by the Clinton Foundation.

    Right about now it would be good if someone like Rudy Giuliani, who was a very good Federal Prosecutor, could be appointed Special Prosecutor to look into all things Clinton, starting from A and going straight through to Z. With subpoena power he could unravel this mess easily enough. The threat of jail is overwhelming if applied by someone who knows what he’s doing and has the reputation Giuliani has.

      A source close to Anthony Weiner’s legal team tells Bret Baier that it seems the laptop containing those emails was used to backup his estranged wife’s Smartphone contacts. In the process, the computer apparently backed up all of the emails as well.

      And by the way, computers can do all sorts of useful things but they cannot think or read your mind, although some people seem to believe they’re nearly that powerful. And this looks like a typical failure of the human element in the equation to make sure that only what they wanted to happen actually happened.

    Benghazi guards turned on US diplomats in 2012 attack, sources say

    “An obscure private firm hired by the State Department over internal objections to protect U.S. diplomats in Benghazi just months before the American ambassador and three others were killed was staffed with hastily recruited locals with terror ties who helped carry out the attack, multiple sources told Fox News.

    The explosive charge against Wales-based Blue Mountain Group comes from several sources, including an independent security specialist who has implemented training programs at U.S. Consulates around the world, including in Benghazi, where he trained a local militia that preceded Blue Mountain. The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Blue Mountain used local newspaper ads to assemble a team of 20 guards, many of whom had terror ties, after securing a $9.2 million annual contract.”

    http://www.foxnews.com/world/2016/11/07/benghazi-guards-turned-on-us-diplomats-in-2012-attack-sources-say.html

    What happened in Benghazi was supposed to come out in the 33K which have never been dropped.

    huge win for Roger Stone & StopTheSteal/Trump campaign:

    6 Nov: StopTheSteal.org: PRESS RELEASE: Roger Stone, Stop the Steal
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    COURT OF APPEALS STAYS OHIO RULING TO HALT “STOP THE STEAL” EXIT POLL
    ARIZONA JUDGE REJECTS DEMOCRATS CLAIM OF INTIMIDATION
    OHIO- The United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit granted an emergency motion by STOP THE STEAL and stayed the restraining order issued Friday by the District Court in Ohio that would have barred Stop The Steal/Vote Protectors from conducting exit polls to be compared actual to voting machine results in certain targeted precincts…
    Yesterday a federal judge in Phoenix refused to issue a similar injunction sought by Democrats that would have ordered Stop The Steal not to engage in their announced plans to conduct an exit poll at the polls next week.
    U.S. District Judge John Tuchi’s Friday evening ruling said the Arizona Democratic Party hadn’t shown evidence that the Republicans were conspiring to conduct illegal voter intimidation…
    “Our goal is to conduct a scientifically valid, methodologically sound exit polls outside certain targeted precinct polling places in eight swing states. We plan to then compare the reported voting machine total to the exit poll results in that targeted precinct,” said Stone.
    “The US State Department (under Hillary Clinton) required not more than a 2% deviance between actual reported results and exit poll results in judging the integrity of foreign elections. All we ask is the same standard apply to the 2106 Presidential election,” said Stone.
    “We target precincts to include historically partisan areas as well as swing precincts and our methodology is no different than that used in the network consortium exit polls,” said Stone, a veteran of nine American presidential campaigns. “We only seek a valid and accurate exit poll in which voters participation is entirely voluntary.
    Stop the Steal is a multi-partisan coalition of Americans who want an honest election and suspect electronic rigging of computerized voting machines in the 2016 elections.
    Stop the Steal is a coalition of Republicans, Democrats Libertarians and Green Party members, supporters of Donald Trump, Governor Gary Johnson, Dr. Jill Stein and Sen. Bernie Sanders as well as, conservatives, progressives and Independents.

    a CNN report, which sees the story from the Dem angle (naturally), but has some further details.
    had to link to this website in Hawaii, because CNN’s link for this headline, now has a different story, see second link below:

    7 Nov: KITV: Democrats falling short on pre-emptive poll-watching lawsuits
    By Ariane de Vogue CNN Supreme Court Reporter
    But while judges have at times been sympathetic, Democrats have now failed in each case where a hearing has been held: Ohio, Nevada and Arizona. Late Sunday, they filed a request to the US Supreme Court in the Ohio case. It’s an uphill climb for the Democrats who face the possibility of a 4-4 court that could deadlock and simply affirm the lower court order that went in Trump’s favor.
    Monday, federal judges will hold hearings in two additional states, Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
    By and large the rulings have been victories for the Trump campaign…

    NOW LINKS TO THIS:

    7 Nov: CNN: Supreme Court won’t restore court order against Trump over poll-watching in Ohio
    By Ariane de Vogue, CNN Supreme Court Reporter
    Steve Vladeck, a CNN legal contributor and professor at the University of Texas Law School, said the lawsuits show how concerns about what happens at polling places are changing…
    “Last-minute litigation isn’t unusual in election years, but those cases are invariably about the mechanics of voting,” Vladeck said.
    “These cases, in contrast, present questions about ballot suppression by private actors that are, at least in contemporary times, novel…”…
    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who had been under fire for comments last summer criticizing Trump, was the only justice to write separately. She made a point of saying that she voted to deny the Democrats’ request because the laws in Ohio already forbid voter intimidation.

    ***After her comments last summer, there were some who argued that if the Supreme Court were to ever hear Trump v. Clinton type case after the election she (GINSBURG) would have to recuse herself.***

    Although the final vote count may never be known, Ginsburg’s statement also highlights that the eight-member court was not deadlocked in a case presented to it a day before the election…
    By and large the rulings have been victories for the Trump campaign but experts say that the Democrats have managed to bring the issue to the forefront — and put it before judges in case something changes on Election Day…
    http://edition.cnn.com/2016/11/06/politics/democrats-republican-poll-watching-lawsuits/index.html

    ***BECAUSE SUPREME COURT IS 4-4 DEM VS REPUBICAN SINCE JUSTICE ANTONIN SCALIA’S DEATH, THE GINSBURG RECUSAL MATTER IS WORTH KEEPING IN MIND.

    7 Nov: TMZ: EXCLUSIVE: Hillary Clinton pulls plug on Election Night Fireworks
    Hillary Clinton will NOT light up the sky over NYC if she wins the Presidency — her campaign is calling off a planned fireworks show … TMZ has learned…
    …the Coast Guard tells TMZ … Clinton’s camp reached out on Thursday — 2 days after her fireworks plan was uncovered — to say it wouldn’t be shooting off the 10″ aerial shells, after all.
    The Coast Guard says the campaign offered no explanation for the about-face. We’ve reached out to the Clinton campaign … no word back yet…

    recent tweets from Poll analyst Bill Mitchell on what, hopefully, will be the final faux polls:

    There is so much wrong with the FoxNews poll, hard to know where to start:
    1) HRC gets 24% Conservatives.
    2) HRC leads 65+ by 12…
    I am now 100% declaring this new FoxNews Poll COMPLETE GARBAGE…
    Not only does FoxNews Poll wildly undersample Independents, they give Trump half the lead with them other polls do…
    I get the sense both Rasmussen and FoxNews threw Hillary 2 points based upon the Comey decision – when in reality, it helped Trump…
    LATimes poll, Trump wins 65+ by 13. FoxNews, Trump loses 65+ by 12. A 25 point difference. And there you are…

    Hillary’s BIG lead in dark blue states is skewing national results. Look inside the biased ABC Poll and she is in BIG trouble in swings…
    Funny. FoxNews and ABC have HRC about +4 in final poll, yet we know ABC gives trump 10 point lead with ED voters in swings states…
    In the same poll ABC claims Hillary wins by 4, they also claim Trump wins CO, FL, NV, NH, NC and OH by 10 on ED. If that happens, HRC LOSES…

    @NateSilver said Hillary cannot afford to lose even one state. She is going to lose CO…
    The final CO poll from Gravis had a D+13 sample and +8 overweight of Women to Men, and yet Trump tied. It.
    Wow, we’re winning CO…
    By my math, if trump carries CO Indies by 8-10, he will win the state by 240,000 votes and be elected President of the United States!…
    I guarantee with 100% certainty, Trump wins tomorrow. He takes CO and MI…

    In 2012, the RCP (RealClearPolitics) has polls 3 points apart. In 2016 they are 11 points apart. Someone got this wrong.

      Virginia is supposed to go to Hillary.

      The Conservative Tree House reported there were 2.5 Mile Long Lines for Donald Trump Midnight Rally in Leesburg Virginia! (Loudoun County, Virginia’s population is 349,679 people)

      Leesburg Rally Report

      While I am finally finding the energy to post some pics and jot out a few lines, Mr Trump has already completed another 2 rallies, and is on the way to his third of the day. Being somewhat new to Loudoun County I did not know that the road to serving the fairgrounds barely fits one car each way, let alone thousands of streaming rally goers. I never fully understood whether there was on-site parking, but I ended up parking along the side of the road at the first open grass spot I saw (after seeing the CTH headline, I clocked my walk back to the car at 2.3 miles). So there is a steady stream of people walking on this tiny unlit road, all happy and out of breath on the hills. Made it to the line, whoa – I had no clue there were this many Trumpians in NoVa. Typical vendors and crowd scene. Lots of people sharing the new commercial on their phones. I met several groups of nice people, especially a lady that invited me to a conservative ladies chat group on FB!

      Upon entering the facility, seeing I was never going to be close to the front, I stationed myself as close to the RSBN camera guy (as I brought my ramshackle sign). He was so nice – they love what they are doing for The Movement. Once we heard about the delay, he even came down and chatted with me for a while. RSBN really deserves our support – just like Sundance, NEW MEDIA will be needed even more after the MSM is shamed tomorrow. RSBN puts Trump rally sign on their tripod, so please don’t yell at them when we turn around and yell at the media!

      When the couple hour delay was announced, about five, repeat 5, people left, from what I could count. The local speakers started speaking, there was a spontaneous singing of God Bless America, and we all joined in with the singer for the National Anthem. Happily the crowd was chocked full of young people! The crowd mix was like other rallies, a little bit of everyone – all races, ethnicities, families, singles, etc – and geez I though only a bunch of non-educated white guys supported Trump (/s). In between speakers it was so fun to check on CTH & Twitter to see other’s pics and comments. We were all also obsessing about where was Mr Trump – it’s like NORAD tracking Santa! I am short and was surrounded by groupings of people that were all over 6 feet! So my viewing of speakers was limited, but the tall people took pictures for me of the speakers & DJT.

      The crowd was amped, they were there to yell their chants and cheer on the next president. I would say that at least half of the people in my direct view were mouthing the words to Mr Trump’s speech right along with him. The lead-up speakers of Oliver North, Laura Ingraham, and Franklin Graham really got the crowd over the edge! Laura’s speech just gave me chills and a few tears may have escaped.

      Was so fun to flash my Bee “hearts” CTH & RSBN sign. I love to live vicariously through those attending rallies, so I just wanted to say Hi to you all! After watching the video when I got home, I will say that I could never endeavor to work for any alphabet agency – my tells while prepping the sign were so obvious – lol at myself! The rally vibe is such a great feeling – it gets me giddy! And here comes Mr Trump!

      His energy! And the crowd knew every single word of “Proud to Be An American” we were signing it at the top of our lungs! Made me think of our Deplorable song “Can You Hear The People Sing.”
      I love that he had his notes jotted down on the back of Trump bumper sticker – blue collar billionaire that he is. When he said that he would call this speech “The Midnight Special,” the crowd loved it – including me!! Just listening to Mr Trump, laughing, nodding in agreement, clapping, chanting our slogans – what a Movement, for sure. Knowing this would be my last rally of the election season was bittersweet – ready for President Trump, but the energy of this first campaign is just flat out special.

      As we piled out, the crowd was held up for the motorcade to pass – I missed that, but it created a bit of push & shove as we were routed out a different way than the way we came in – so a bit of confusion ensued and there were also several medical events that transpired. Once I got to the street (or shall I say, lane) there were cars in full gridlock on going both ways. There was no place to walk except right down the middle of the street between the cars. Is was a bit disconcerting, I felt like I was in a movie, where zombies were streaming out of the woods and onto the streets in the middle of the night! But we were happy and motivated zombies!

      Left for the rally at 4:10 p.m., arrived home at 2:05 a.m. – what a great and fulfilling use of my time! Thanks for indulging me to be on a CTH branch from which to buzz and flap my wings every now and then. I so appreciate all of the contributors that do the in-depth analysis of polls and the philosophers that share on a such a consistent basis. Chatting to you about my rally experiences is what I can offer – hope you enjoy.

      I have attached a link to a few pics. Most are self-explanatory, but two of note: 1. How the CNN reporter (Dan Merica, I think) turns his back on the audience when we yell “CNN Sucks.” 2. My fave SS guy made a visit to the press pool, so I got a good pic –

    Vlad the Impaler -

    but look at this (which is why I could care less about RCP averages). an outlier like this should not even be listed:

    I always laugh at the idiots who insist that “the polls are accurate.”
    And yet here we have a set of polls for New Hampshire with results ranging from +11 for Clinton to +5 for Trump…
    It is designed to skew the RCP average…

    poll was carried out/manufactured by UNH Survey Center, but worth noting this:

    Michael Ettlinger, the director of the University of New Hampshire’s ***Carsey School of Public Policy, told campaign chairman John Podesta in a March 2015 email that he was already working to advance Clinton’s campaign “in my private capacity.”
    “But the best place to start is with what I can do formally from heading the Carsey School,” Ettlinger wrote in a message from his personal email address. He wanted to know “how I can be helpful from my perch in New Hampshire.”

    Sundance explains the dynamics of Florida voting:
    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2016/11/07/florida-data-ballots-and-ground-reports-latino-vote-supports-patrone-impact/

    Florida is a swing state and important because the demographics reflect that of the USA. Also it has citizens from every state.

    NOTICE THE RED HATS AND SHIRTS. Most of those are Trump voters! We are wearing red for ID since you are not allowed anything about the candidates within X feet of the polling place. (If 25% of the people are in red but the vote is 100% Hillary, you know something is hinky)

    “nothing new”, but Trump has “no concrete proof”:

    7 Nov: Computerworld: Grant Gross: Security vendor demonstrates hack of U.S. e-voting machine
    Other election security experts suggest the hack is nothing new
    A hacker armed with a $25 PCMCIA card can, within a few minutes, change the vote totals on an aging electronic voting machine that is now in limited use in 13 U.S. states, a cybersecurity vendor has demonstrated.
    The hack by security vendor Cylance — which released a video (LINK) of it Friday — caught the attention (LINK) of noted National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, but other critics of e-voting security dismissed the vulnerability as nothing new…
    The hack is “not surprising,” Pamela Smith, president of elections security advocacy group Verified Voting, said by email. “The timing of the release is a little odd.”…
    At the same time, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has been warning supporters, with no concrete proof, that the election may be “rigged” against him…
    The Cylance demonstration was “not new and badly timed,” said Joe Kiniry, a security researcher and CEO at Free and Fair, an election technology developer. “This kind of attack has been demonstrated on almost all of the widely deployed machines used today.”…
    Releasing the video just before the U.S. election strikes at the issue while people are paying attention, he added. The vulnerabilities in e-voting machines have been discussed for years, “and we still haven’t done anything about it,” he said…
    Dominion Voting Systems, the vendor of the voting machine, did not immediately respond to a request for comments on the Cylance hack…
    The Sequoia AVC Edge Mk1 e-voting machine targeted by Cylance is used by some voting precincts in potential presidential swing states Florida, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Nevada, and Wisconsin. The machine is used statewide in Nevada and used widely in Wisconsin, but both states have post-election audit procedures in place, Verified Voting’s Smith said.
    In other states, including Florida and Colorado, the machines are used only in a handful of locations for voters with special accessibility requirements. Pennslyvania uses the machine in just one county, Smith said.
    In the Cylance hack, a PCMCIA card, programmed with the hacker’s desired vote totals, can be inserted into a slot on the Sequoia AVC machine. The hacker can then change the vote totals, and even the candidates’ names, Cylance demonstrated…
    http://www.computerworld.com/article/3139277/security/security-vendor-demonstrates-hack-of-us-e-voting-machine.html

    plus the possibility of a little “Fraction Magic” by the central tabulators – never mind.
    it’s sure to be a free and fair election.

    voter fraud could be the least of concerns.

    pure evil!

    7 Nov: ZeroHedge: Tyler Durden: Newsweek Calls It: “Madam President Clinton” Hits The Shelves Due To A “Business Decision
    With still over a day to go until the earliest possible result from tomorrow’s presidential election, a part of the blogosphere and conservative media was up in arms over a commemorative Newsweek cover depicting “Madam President” which appeared in print as early as Saturday.
    As Infowars reported, a Twitter user who works at a bookstore tweeted the images with the comment, “I work at a bookstore and we typically get magazines early and lookie what we got here.” and then adds that “her Twitter account was subsequently deleted after reporter Luke Costin chastised her for “fueling Trumpists’ hysteria about “rigged” #Election2016.”…
    We were initially skeptical: the more likely – and innocent – explanation was that Newsweek had simply prepared not one but two commemorative editions as a contingency, one in case Hillary wins, the other profiling a Trump victory, so they are ready to be distributed bright and early on Wednesday morning. And, we would expect, both editions would have already been printed and ready for pick up…
    To an extent, some of this skepticism was allayed on Monday afternoon when CNN on Monday afternoon asked Newsweek editor Jim Impoco to comment on the cover flap, who responded simply: By sending a picture of the President Trump version of the cover…

    As CNN explains to its slower readers, “this is the media version of World Series keepsakes that were on sale in Cleveland and Chicago last week. Street vendors printed “Cubs win” and “Indians win” T-shirts, then trashed the Indians shirts after the Cubs won Game 7.”

    There is just one very notable difference: in the case of the World Series, there were two sets of shirts created. However, in the case of the infamous Newsweek special edition, the publishing company Topix, decided to print just one.
    Guess which.
    And this is where the “business decision” came in: according to CNN, “Topix made a business decision to only print the Clinton version ahead of time given that she is almost universally favored to win the election on Tuesday.”
    And the punchline:
    “If Trump wins, the Clinton copies will be trashed and the Trump version will be rushed to the printing presses — a simple business calculation, Romando said.”
    Yet inversely, if Hillary wins there will be no need to trash the Trump version as one simply has not been created, while the Clinton edition will have already been distributed and just waiting to be bought…
