E-Mails Matter

The recent shootings in Dallas have overshadowed the recent e-mail debacle of Mrs. Clinton, and the way she has gotten off the hook. I came across a description by the late Vince Flynn of how really serious classified documents can be, particularly when they relate to clandestine activities, in which the Secretary of State would have knowledge.

"The e-mails could possess hundreds of names, and those names represent real people who are assets of the CIA. Some of them are Americans, deep cover operatives who are operating in foreign countries without the aid of diplomatic cover. If these people are exposed, the likelihood is that they'd be killed. And then there are the agents -- the men and women who work for foreign governments. They come in every stripe from politicians to bureaucrats, to scientists, to financiers, to military personnel, to intelligence operatives
and janitors and secretaries. More than any
satellite or listening device, these men and women are the eyes and ears of the CIA.They offer snippets of information that when pieced together aid in understanding the intent of our foes and sometimes, when needed, the ability to predict their next move."

Merely writing off the "lost" e-mails as if they were of no significance is Clinton's biggest lie of all.

    Ever hear about black flag events--either to get our attention onto something, or in this case off of something.

    Have you ever seen any attempt at assassination as this successful. From a guy that wasn't a highly trained combat soldier, just a run of the mill grunt. Just coincidental timing from an evil, lone grunt gunman--in Dallas even, doing amazing things with a gun. Then instead of waiting him out, no water, no food--kill him with a C4 bomb. Come on.

      My husband speculates that these shootings are coming out of Washington...and specifically 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

        (taking out my conspiracy card again)

        I agree with your husband. I can definitely see the occupant of that address doing what he can to stir things up.

        I don't remember any of the specific websites, but over the past year or so I've seen what some would call wild speculation that he will do what he can to stir things up as much as possible, invoke some kind of martial law, and postpone the 2016 election, leaving himself in power.

        I don't necessarily buy into that, but I definitely can't--and won't--dismiss it, either. Every single action this guy takes in situations like this points to keeping trouble alive, not quieting it down.

        And then I remember this quote:

        โ€œWe are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.โ€ โ€” Barack Obama, October 30, 2008

        Invoking martial law sure would be a good way to continue his transformation, no?

        (putting the card away again).

        I still can't believe this guy got elected. I REALLY can't believe he got re-elected.

          Was it Barnum or some politician who said that it was a mistake to ever underestimate the stupidity of the American electorate? I am a bit sheepish to invoke it, because I would prefer to admire the intelligence of the American People, but just a few viewings of the Watter's World segments on O'Reilly are enough to make you wonder.

      I'm tempted to agree with you, but I suspect that is more my dislike of Mrs. Clinton than it is probability.

        I'm thinking the evil hag is glad something came along to take some focus off her most prominent display of corruption.

          No doubt about that at all. Zenphamy's scenario is tempting to believe that she set this all up for the distraction from her troubles and it is now spreading country-wide. Could not have been better for her.

            On the contrary, this could not have come at a worse time for Hillary. It now becomes more difficult for her to pretend to support both the police and the Black Lives Matter movement simultaneously. In 1968 Nixon was narrowly elected by positioning himself as a โ€œlaw and orderโ€ candidate following a summer of riots and racial tensions, and Donald Trump appears to be reading from the same playbook. Bad news for Hillary on top of bad news for Hillary.

              Seems to age 69 (million years!) Old Dino that we have a lot more clueless sheeple walking around than we did back then.
              Yesterday's hippies were in a loud minority but seems a lot of them grew up to become college professors with years and years of coming and going impressionable students to indoctrinate.
              These days a conservative speaker can't even speak on some campuses without a big ugly student ballyhoo erupting.

    Criminal prosecution of Hillary for puting secret material in an unsecure location is not enough to fix the problem, but it's a start. Since anyone else would have been prosecuted for actions like these, prosecution of Hillary is the first step toward justice.

    When Carter and Company decided to FOI a lot of things without checking part of it was a list of foreign agents working for us n the human intelligence arena.

    Of those left alive none will make the mistake of trusting the US Government anymore.

    Of those of us who rememer that shameful episode none would allow the real names by any sources tp be lmpwm by official US Government sources ever again. I'm surprised the families of some of them if they are still living haven't whacked people like Carter a;long time ago. His Secret Service Detail must be triple strength and working constant overtime.
