The election’s over – but Hillary Clinton’s emails are still coming to light. And they help illustrate why the FBI declared she was “extremely careless” with the information flowing across her secret server. A new batch of messages released by the State Department on Tuesday shows the former secretary of state and her team routinely shared her upcoming schedules, talking points and sensitive items – such as her iPad password – via the homebrewed system. Other newly revealed emails, which were posted as the result of litigation, show Clinton’s top advisers griping about her during her time as secretary of State; an
The "homebrewed" system narrative needs to stop also. She intentionally installed servers and paid for the to be operated and maintained. The homebrew aspect implies an old Mac in the basement or similar which is completely and utterly false. This server was put in place to shield the activities of the Clinton Criminal Foundation from FOIA disclosures during the Secretary of State tenure.
Hard to believe all of her emails are not in possession of Russia or China. I expect Sessions, as a conscientious prosecutor, will have to press charges. If he does not, then a whole bunch of young GIs have gone to prison for much less damaging offenses on security.
In the military, leaving a file cabinet unlocked that contains even routine classified information is enough to land a person in deep doo. Hillary exposed Her file cabinet to the entire world and thinks nothing of it.
This appears to support Assange´s claim that a teenager could have hacked these careless criminals. The FBI cannot figure out if Hillary´s server was hacked, but we know that John Podesta´s accounts were hacked by the Russians? Podesta´s password was "password".
All of the screeching and the hearings about Russian hacking of the DNC and Podesta only serve to make it blatantly obvious that Illary´s unsecured server was hacked by every government and probably half the teenagers on the planet.
When I had a security clearance (most of my career), we got written up for all kinds of violations - forgetting a badge, leaving a classified document on a desk in a closed office, wearing our badges in public, locking a safe, but not signing the lockup sheet. Three infractions in six months was grounds for losing a clearance.
Compare those rules to what Hillary got away with.
Just goes to illustrate how liberals who believe they are so smart are actually really dumb and ignorant. Like modern education in our public schools and universities... they know a lot of stuff, but most of it is either not true, based in reality, or irrelevant. She thought if she had her own server, it would hide all her correspondence from the world. Computer security never even came up as an issue. That´s what happens when you rely on other people to do everything for you, and you choose people based on ideology instead of competence.
If the situation was reversed, the loathsome lickspittle demmedia would be hyperventilating 24/7 about the technical incompetence of the Republicans and the wonderful abilities of the wonderful Dems because their secrets were not spread everywhere. Now? Crickets.
The Russian hacking story failed the smell test from the first. Hillary had already sold off a third of US uranium rights to the Russians. They had every expectation she would continue this pattern. Second, the Russians are not as stupid as the Democratic media. If indeed the Russians had hacked Hillary´s server, the contents would have been much more valuable as blackmail. The Russians would have preferred Hillary as president.
#10, I share your experiences, however, what the PIAPS had on her ´puter was SAP info. Far, far above the sensitivity of what we were normally tasked to deal with. Special Intelligence or codeword restricted info was serious but still not as dangerous to the US as the stuff the PIAPS was cavalierly handling. Her arrogance is/was breathtaking—not a word I use easily. The country that the enemedia is ignoring is North Korea. There is no worse enemy, and it has talented, dedicated hackers. Make no mistake, they were into the PIAPS ´puters.
What is truly intriguing about this is how STUPID the dems are. Your Grandmother knows enough not to share passwords and that "password" is not a good password. Yet these "geniuses", who exist to tell the rest of us what to do and what is fair can´t follow the simplest practices to keep their emails private.
Would we really want people who can´t wait to claim their money from Nigeria to be running the Country?
This e-mail crap about them affecting the outcome of the election is all bull. The only thing I got out of these e-mails is Podesta is a fool with the password "Password" and the DNC is dysfunctional. The only one who really got burned is Bernie. Also this Russian woke up the Warmonger McCain who is ready to declare war on Russia. What about the DNC whistleblower who was found dead in Washington DC sounds like he was the leaker because Julian Assange is taking this very hard and put out a $20,000 reward for any clues.
I´m sorry number 2 and it´s a risk for me to take such LDot posting violations in such a cavalier manner but her server secrets couldn´t possibly have been gotten by the Russians and Chinese. Did you not know that John McCain and Lindsey Graham made it clear the Russians have never hacked anything but the elections? Why in you world would you or anyone assume that an unsecured server used by the Secretary of State filled with the highest classified information, available to our enemies 24/7/365, and known to exist and be readily available with all kinds of information that put the nation in danger would want anything other than info that would force you and I at gunpoint to vote for Trump? Wake up and smell the Congressional Lunch Room coffee.
Come on man, if the information in her server and in the Wikileak emails were important and caused any damage, embarrassment or loss of a US operative´s life during Hillary´s tenure, Senators McCain and Graham would have emphasized that instead of election hacking. So, you must conclude along with the all knowing senators that the ONLY security concern we have ever had in the past "scandal free" eight years is Putin´s election hacking.
Hundreds of key jobs across the federal government remain vacant as a result of an overworked White House personnel office that is frustrating Cabinet secretaries and hampering President Donald Trump’s ability to carry out his ambitious legislative agenda. The process is bogged down as a result of micromanaging by the president and senior staff, turf wars between the West Wing and Cabinet secretaries and a largely inexperienced and overworked staff, say more than a dozen sources including administration insiders, lobbyists, lawyers and Republican strategists. Trump personally oversees the hiring process for agency staff by insisting on combing through a binder full of
The Trump administration invited leaders of congressional intelligence panels to review documents it said raise questions about whether government spy agencies improperly identified President Donald Trump’s campaign officials and associates in the course of routine foreign surveillance.In a letter signed by White House Counsel Donald McGahn, the administration said Thursday it was responding to a March 15 request from intelligence committees for “documents necessary to determine whether information collected on U.S. persons was mishandled and leaked.” It asks the committees to probe whether the intelligence was properly gathered, whether names were improperly revealed and “to the extent that U.S. citizens
It´s the most cunning robocall scam I’ve encountered — and the fact that I’ve fallen for it more than once tells you how successful it can be. The phone rings. You pick it up and say “hello.” There’s a brief silence and then a woman’s voice says, “Oh, hi there!” She offers an embarrassed laugh. “I’m sorry, I was having a little trouble with my headset!”I’ve gotten this call a number of times in recent weeks, at home and at work, and each time I’ve been suckered by the lifelike opening to stay on the line longer than I normally
German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen on Sunday rejected U.S. President Donald Trump´s claim that Germany owes NATO and the United States "vast sums" of money for defense."There is no debt account at NATO," von der Leyen said in a statement, adding that it was wrong to link the alliance´s target for members to spend 2 percent of their economic output on defense by 2024 solely to NATO."Defense spending also goes into UN peacekeeping missions, into our European missions and into our contribution to the fight against IS terrorism," von der Leyen said.She said everyone wanted the burden to
A former State Department IT technician who set up Hillary Clinton´s private email server in her home may face criminal charges for avoiding multiple subpoenas to testify on Clinton´s email server. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, sent a letter on Thursday to Attorney General Jeff Session asking that Bryan Pagliano be charged for ignoring multiple subpoenas requesting that he testify before the Oversight Committee. Pagliano was responsible for managing Clinton´s private server and also served as a senior adviser to the former secretary of state.
Nearly 2,000 people are believed to have died from opioid overdoses last year in Massachusetts, a record tally of death and suffering that came despite widespread public and private campaigns to stanch the state’s addiction crisis.A state Department of Public Health report released Friday showed that opioids were confirmed as the cause of 1,465 deaths and suspected in 514 additional deaths. Opioids killed or were suspected of killing five times more people than died in car crashes.The main culprit appeared to be the drug fentanyl, which was present in an increasing number of cases, even as heroin-related deaths declined. Illegal
On Friday, President Donald Trump and his entourage will jet for the third straight weekend to a working getaway at his oceanfront Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.On Saturday, Trump’s sons Eric and Don Jr., with their Secret Service details in tow, will be nearly 8,000 miles away in the United Arab Emirates, attending the grand opening of a Trump-brand golf resort in the ‘‘Beverly Hills of Dubai.’’ Meanwhile, New York police will keep watch outside the Trump Tower in Manhattan, the chosen home of first lady Melania Trump and son Barron. And the tiny township of Bedminster, New Jersey, is Source corrected
The State Department under Rex Tillerson, who has been among President Trump’s least visible Cabinet officials and is still lacking much of his senior staff, is undergoing further shrinkage in its upper echelons, according to current and former U.S. officials. Kristie Kenney, a three-time ambassador and career Foreign Service officer who has served as State Department counselor for the past year, has been told that her services are no longer needed in that job and that her staff is to be reassigned. The offices of counselor, who provides strategic guidance to the secretary, and the empty slot of deputy secretary for
President Trump’s national security adviser wants to fight not just Islamic terrorists but the “radical ideology of Islam,” and he plans to do it from the grass roots up, starting with our children at schools while also using social media.Dealing with the global Islamist threat on a tactical level through drone strikes and arrests hasn’t worked, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn argues, according to his largely overlooked 2016 book, “The Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and Its Allies.” He wants to combat it more broadly, using informational warfare, among other things, on
Washington — Now, stacked on the Trump tower of petrifying things we have to worry about — war with Iran, war with China, war with Mexico, war with Islam, war with koala bears — there is yet another looming disaster.The East Wing is perilously behind in planning for the Easter Egg Roll. Is the White House dropping the ball — or rather, the ovoid? As our omnipresent new president hijacked our reality, the first lady vanished, sparking headlines for nary a glimpse in D.C. since the inaugural.Just as there is a gush of leaks from the resistance in the federal
Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos said Wednesday that the riot that canceled his planned speech at the University of California-Berkeley was "heavily ironic and very, I think, self-defeating for the social justice left."Yiannopoulos´ planned talk was scrapped after violent protesters hurled smoke bombs, broke windows and started a bonfire outside the student union where he was to appear."No one’s safety is at risk from different opinions," Yiannopoulos told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" in a phone interivew. "No one’s physical safety is endangered by political ideas from a speaker on campus, but universities have sort of allowed this stuff to happen, and even
WASHINGTON — President Trump takes medication for three ailments, including a prostate-related drug to promote hair growth, Mr. Trump’s longtime physician, Dr. Harold N. Bornstein, said in a series of recent interviews. The other drugs are antibiotics to control rosacea, a common skin problem, and a statin for elevated blood cholesterol and lipids.Dr. Bornstein, who spoke by telephone in four interviews over the past month, also said that Mr. Trump takes a daily baby aspirin to reduce the risk of a heart attack. Over all, he pronounced Mr. Trump healthy and his medical care “as exactly up to date.” Dr. Bornstein granted
Barack Obama has agreed to a $400,000 fee for speaking to a prominent Wall Street firm, according to Charlie Gasparino of the Fox Business Network. Former president Obama will speak to a health care conference sponsored by Cantor Fitzgerald in September, Gasparino reports. (Tweet/Video) The huge fee puts Obama at the top of the list of speaking fees for former government officials. Former Fed chair Ben Bernanke charges between $200,000 and $400,000, former Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner charges $200,000, and former President George Bush charges around $150,000, according to a person familiar with the matter. Hillary Clinton received over $200,000
SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope. San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. But an attorney for the Justice Department,
Monday on MSNBC former Obama White House press secretary Josh Earnest said former President Barack Obama would come back to the political debate if President Donald Trump crosses “red lines” such as using information from deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA) applications to deport so-called DREAMers. (Snip) “I think what would motivate President Obama to re-engage in the political debate is if we saw the federal government start to cross some clear red lines in terms of long observed norms and values that frankly I think we have started to take for granted. One example that President Obama has himself
Sean Hannity is the latest Fox News personality facing allegations of sexual harassment. During a Friday interview with Tulsa, Oklahoma-based radio host Pat Campbell, former Fox News contributor Debbie Schlussel accused Hannity of inviting her to his hotel room before and after a debate with a pro-Palestinian guest in Detroit. Schlussel said she rejected Hannity’s alleged advances and that she was never invited on his show again. Schlussel and Hannity were scheduled to speak together at the Detroit show, Schlussel said. But before the show, Hannity allegedly invited her to an event at a nearby bookstore. “He had some event at a bookstore
The entire U.S. Senate has been invited to the White House for a briefing Wednesday on the North Korea situation, amid escalating tensions over the country’s missile tests and bellicose rhetoric. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer confirmed the upcoming briefing, for all 100 senators, on Monday. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats plan to provide the update to lawmakers. It is rare for the entire Senate to be invited to such a briefing. Spicer clarified that while the event will
Former President Barack Obama on Monday partly blamed the nation´s splintered politics on a media structure that lets people only listen to or read media outlets they agree with, which prevents them from hearing the other side. "Because of changes in the media, we now have a situation in which everybody is listening to people who already agree with them, and are further and further reinforcing their own realities to the neglect of the common reality that allows us to have a healthy debate, and then try to find common ground and actually move solutions forward," Obama said in his
Ex-President Barack Obama is the mystery man of American politics. Given the absence of a viable paper trail, nobody can say for sure who he is. He manifests for us as a figure of multiple identities: a Christian, a Muslim, a secularist, a socialist, a humanist, an intellectual, a man of the people. His lack of definable substance, his inner absence, has been an important political advantage. As Obama himself confessed (or boasted) in The Audacity of Hope, this layering of anonymities enabled him to “serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.—I’m loving all these Ancestry.com commercials where dim-witted actors say, “I thought I was a Tahitian Eskimo Mexican until I sent in my DNA test kit, and boy was I flummoxed when the results came back! I’m really Croatian with a mix of sub-Saharan! I guess I’ll be turning in my furry hat!” This is a scam I’m thoroughly in favor of, because it reveals, once and for all, the dirty secret of American politics: Race doesn’t exist! Don’t get me wrong. I don’t believe for a second that these tests mean anything. If you believe that DNA patterns
It was a message repeated several times at a Democrat news conference Tuesday afternoon: Republicans, agree with us on a spending bill, or we’ll blame you for shutting down the government. And it appears that Republicans, who control all three branches of government, are listening: “Now last night, we received a bit of good news -- not just for Democrats but for the country – that the president is easing off his demands for a border wall in the government funding bill,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told the news conference. “The money is better used elsewhere,” Schumer said. “If the
Liberal activist and Hollywood director Rob Reiner slammed President Donald Trump on Monday and suggested that Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election was the "greatest attack" on American democracy since Japan´s attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. "We´ve had the greatest attack of this democracy since 1941, and we have to understand that," Reiner said on MSNBC. Reiner also suggested that American society might collapse given the pressure Russia placed on democratic institutions in the country. Japan drew the United States into World War II after attacking its naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on December 7, 1941, killing
A group of executives who want to fight global warming has published a new report calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy efficiency equipment. [SNIP] To meet that goal ETC claims the world needs “investment in renewables and other low-carbon technologies some $6 trillion higher ($300 billion per year); while the largest required increases – of almost $9 trillion ($450 billion per year) – will be in more efficient energy saving equipment and buildings.” That’s a $15 trillion price tag to theoretically limit future
Debbie Schlussel, a former Fox News guest, appeared on a local radio show on Friday and recounted an incident where Sean Hannity purportedly asked her to a hotel, and when she rebuffed his advances, she claims, she was ostracized by the network star. (Snip) Now, in an interview with LawNewz.com on Monday morning, Schlussel is denying that she was ever sexually harassed by Sean Hannity. While Schlussel stands by her description of the incident, Schlussel told us that she doesn’t believe what happened between the two amounted to sexual harassment by any legal definition. “I would never accuse him of that.
