Groundhog Day at Clinton.com

 Is it too much to ask from Hillary to see her shadow and disappear for another four years? Lots of new email material, in part because I didn't manage to clear the decks yesterday due to a day spent driving back from Canonsburg, as well as settling back in. Let's jump right in.

The big story, of course, has to be Hillary's Emails Included the True Names of CIA NOCs Working Overseas. This is a big deal, if you believe as almost all intelligence people seem to, that Hillary's email's were being read in real time by any number of not-so-friendly powers. It is exactly the sort of intelligence failure that the secure email systems of the Federal government were designed to prevent, and Put Spies’ Lives at Risk. All so Hillary could avoid the potential FOIA of her emails by political opponents save herself the trouble of carrying two devices. Hillary brushed the story aside with a non-sequitur that claims to have heard "yesterday":
The best explanation I heard of this I heard yesterday in Des Moines from a man I was shaking hands with… He said, “This is like you drive through the same intersection for four years and the speed limit is 35 and then you move out of town and they change the speed limit to 25. And then they start sending tickets to people who drove while the speed limit was 35 over 25.”
Which is utter BS because she signed an agreement with the State Dept. regarding classified data in which she acknowledged that some data need not be marked to be top secret. One might imagine that spies names would count. Shockingly, George Stephanopoulos does a decent job of attempting to grasp that eel:

Notice how she works back around to "it has to be marked" for her to know it's classified. Of course, it's also bullshit, because she used that same traffic analogy three weeks ago. So she's a little brain damaged? What could go wrong?

Evidence from the emails shows that at least somebody on her staff (Cheryl Mills)wanted her to take security a little more seriously, Emails show aides wanted 'super encrypted' Blackberry for Clinton, saying Hillary did "not know how to use a computer to do email." This also supports the State Departments IG who says ‘This was all planned’: Former IG says Hillary, State Dept. are lying. It's pretty clear that State, DOD, CIA, NSA and the Obama administration all turned a blind eye to Hillary's use of a private unsecured email server. For it's part, State jumped right in and promised to produce the last of Hillary's email after the New Hampshire primary, unless, maybe it snows again. Way to hustle, boys and girls!

A few days old, but unused to this point, Josh Earnest said Clinton Will Not Be Indicted Over Emails ‘Based On What We Know’…, but If you can’t prosecute Hillary Clinton, then you can’t prosecute Edward Snowden. That's only if the rule of law still holds; a proposition currently in doubt. A long list of Legal Issues Relating to (Former) Secretary Hillary Clinton’s Candidacy make interesting reading. Rupert Murdoch claims psychic powers or inside knowledge: Murdoch Hints at White House’s ‘Surprising Alternates’ if Hillary Email Trouble Gets Worse, my own guess, from the previous post is:
. .  is that someday very soon either Loretta Lynch or Barack Obama himself will come out with a statement that it would be wrong to let a criminal process interfere with the coronation election of the next Democrat.
while the New York Post seems to be calling Hillary a being from a higher, or more likely lower dimension: How long can Hillary Clinton hide in a parallel universe?

On the Bimbo Eruption  front Paula Jones called Hillary Clinton ‘Two Faced,’ ‘Liar,’ and said she ‘Cares Nothing About Women at All’, and she knows from first hand experience. Via Althouse: "Among those unlikables consistently repeated to me by women who are conflicted about her: not authentic; can’t trust her; she lies; she’s establishment; she’s a hawk." Writes Gail Sheehy in a NYT op-ed "The Women Who Should Love Hillary Clinton." In the comments from Bob Boyd:
Sometimes when I picture the future, I imagine Hillary Clinton stamping on a human face forever.

I also imagine the guy getting stomped will just be grateful Hillary never wears a skirt.
And from the "Feeling the Bern" department: Hillary Clinton confronts her 43 percent problem
Mitt Romney had a 47 percent problem. Hillary Clinton’s problem is 43 percent.

That’s the share of Democratic caucus goers in Iowa who identify themselves as “socialists,” according to a recent Des Moines Register poll. It’s a percentage that has turned a once-easy line of attack – painting Bernie Sanders as too far left to be electable -- into a trickier endeavor for Clinton in the last days before the Iowa caucuses.
To counteract that Clinton Strategist Claims Bernie Sanders Is Running the ‘Most Negative’ Democratic Primary Campaign Ever by telling the truth that she is supported by Goldman Sachs, which is astonishing considering the dirty tricks she played on Obama, unsuccessfully, of course. Three Days Before Caucus=> Hillary Clinton Stumps to Half-Empty Room in Dubuque, Iowa. Face it Hillary, your just not that likable.

And finally Punxsutawney Phil Did Not See His Shadow:
A crowd gathered at Gobbler's Knob early this morning, awaiting the emergence of the groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil. After a tap of a cane on Phil's tree-trunk cage, his door was opened, and the animal emerged.

He was held aloft to cheers and applause. Phil did not respond, other than to blink. Placed on top of the trunk, he attempted to flee before his actions were closely analyzed.

Interpreting Phil's behavior, the Groundhog Club emcee proclaimed, "There is no shadow to be cast! An early spring is my forecast!"

He added, "Take your jackets off, you're not going to need them!"

Few in the crowd followed that advice; the temperature this morning in Punxsutawney, Pa., was reported at 22 degrees.
Plenty of shadows here this morning, and the temperature was 40, down from yesterday balmy 65.
