Saturday, July 30, 2016 Hacked!

I guess I have time for one more, but I'll try to keep it short:

Clinton campaign also hacked in attacks on Democrats
The computer network used by Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign was hacked as part of a broad cyber attack on Democratic political organizations, people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The latest attack, which was disclosed to Reuters on Friday, follows reports of two other hacks on the Democratic National Committee, or DNC, and the party’s fundraising committee for candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives.
. . .
The U.S. Department of Justice national security division is investigating whether cyber attacks on Democratic political organizations threatened U.S. security, sources familiar with the matter said on Friday.

The involvement of the Justice Department’s national security division is a sign that the Obama administration has concluded that the hacking was sponsored by a state, people with knowledge of the investigation said.
While I agree that it's likely to have been the Russians (and maybe the Chinese, Iranians, Norks and Israelis too), they seem to be going beyond James Clapper here, who wouldn't conclude that it was the Russians in public. That seems to be part of a media campaign to blame Trump, as if his joking comments three days ago were the cause of hacking  that occurred months if not years ago: FBI warned Clinton campaign last spring of cyberattack Like Ace says:
Though I can't justify being amused at criminal intrusions into the US political system, I will still laugh like f*** about it.
Clinton’s Comments on 60 Minutes About Private Email Server Now Used Against Her in Court
Hillary Clinton‘s comments on her use of a private server during last weekend’s 60 Minutes interview are now being used against her in a FOIA lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group. For the last several weeks, Judicial Watch has been seeking to depose Clinton about her use of a private email server in order to figure out if Freedom of Information Act requirements were violated.

Judicial Watch says new information was gleaned from an interview with CBS’ Scott Pelley including the fact that Clinton admitted that someone recommended she set up the server. The group wants to know who that someone was. They also contend her statement provides further reasoning for why she must be deposed under oath.  Clinton’s lawyers say that issue is irrelevant to the lawsuit.
The last thing Hillary wants to do is testify under oath. There's only one more oath she wants to take, ever.

Hillary marriage 'is a total fake': Secret Service expert claims Clintons have 'business relationship' for benefit of her presidential campaign. So tell me something I don't already know.

Truly the candidate for the little people: Hedge Fund Donations: $123 Million to Hillary Clinton, $19 Thousand to Donald Trump Well, they are relations by marriage. Flash back: Chelsea Clinton's husband Marc and his colleagues from Goldman Sachs shutter $25 million hedge fund after losing nearly ALL their investors' money (good thing he still has his $10 million apartment). Just call her #HedgefundHillary

CNN Wolf Blitzer drinks wine, dances to celebrate Hillary’s nomination Actually, it's a good thing they're not even trying hide their favoritism. The press shouldn’t hold their breath waiting for Hillary Clinton to take any questions It's less awkward all the way around if they aren't put in the position of pretending to be objective.

There's a Little Black Spot on the Tongue Today: Something very weird about Hillary’s face at the convention. Biopsy?

Hillary Clinton tries to be all things to all people at Democratic convention. But she can't even fake humanity. From Ace's Thoughts on Generalissima Clinton's Adress
. . . Her criticisms of Trump might carry weight, except for the fact that an authoritarian, grasping con-artist and looter is calling Trump an authoritarian grifter. One cut of Hillary's seems particularly un-self-aware. She recalled Trump's bluster in saying that he understood ISIS better than generals do. With the only approximation of humor in the speech, she deadpanned "No, Donald, you don't."
. . .
Now let's look at Hillary. Since the 90s, she has pushed one Branding Message to her media allies -- her Sisters in Solidarity -- relentlessly. That Branding Message is that she is, quote, "The Smartest Woman in the World."

She has pushed and pushed and pushed this claim out to her courtiers and haigiographers.

If you're lucky enough to be young, you don't know this. But when conservative deride Hillary, sarcastically, as The Smartest Woman in the World, we're doing that because Hillary cajoled her Distaff Praetorian to pump that out to the world for twenty years or so.

So is Hillary Clinton's complaint that Trump lacks humility, or is her complaint really that Trump has no right to his narcissism, unlike herself and her patron Obama, who clearly deserve to think of themselves as smarter than experts in their fields of specialization?
Best Darn Changemaker: Hillary’s Senate Accomplishment: One Bill Enacted into Law, to Name a Federal Building, her one concrete achievement was getting a courthouse renamed for Thurgood Marshall.

Dem anxiety hangs over Clinton. But are they as worried about her losing as I am about her winning?Even Her Supporters Know Hillary Clinton Is The Terminator  ‘It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.’ Which is why AMERICA CAN’T STAND HILLARY. Can I get an "amen," Brother?
