  1. It is worrying that elections can be influenced this way, but Climategate and the Podesta emails are not comparable.

    In case of Climategate there was no wrong doing. Those mails should never have become mainstream news. The Podesta emails showed real problems in the DNC that were clearly newsworthy.

    It showed that the cable TV and the political establishment are in one boat and that debate questions were funnelled to the Clinton campaign.

    The DNC should have been neutral in the primary, but campaigned for Clinton and against Sanders; Wassermann-Schulz left as a consequence.

    It showed that the DNC despised Larry Lessing for wanting to get money out of politics.

    There was a lot of email nonsense, but some things were real and newsworthy. Ignoring that because the source has bad intentions is also not journalism and would not work.


    • I agree with your opinion…

      The emails that came out verified that the DNC was NOT impartial with Bernie and actively worked to marginalize and undercut and in the process compromised the elections and committed FRAUD!!!

      To that end, for all of you who donated to Bernie… there is a class action lawsuit that has been filed against the DNC… seeking refund of donations to Bernie from the DNC…

        What opinion do you agree with, Louise?

        “There was a lot of email nonsense, but some things were real and newsworthy. Ignoring that because the source has bad intentions is also not journalism and would not work”.

        You would deny the existential threat to the planet and our country represented by the tactics and actions of the RUSSIAN HACKERS in Climategate and the 2016 election? All because you can’t get over the bern? Are you one of the voters that may have helped throw the election to Trump? If so, nice going.

        What went on in the DNC is certainly not admirable, but politics in this country has been for a lona time an analogue of making sausage. Your inability to get over the bern is NOT going to help the country. People are talking about Bernie being the “New Leader of the Democratic Party” in Clinton’s place, and I can pretty much live with that. Can’t see how you’re doing much good shouting FRAUD and touting a lawsuit against the DNC. Grow up.

    1000 emails. One phrase ‘Hide the Decline’. It’s like trolling the ocean, catching an eel, and exclaiming “See? I told you the ocean is full of snakes!”

      The eel that is found is harmless, but they make it out to be an ocean full of snakes. That is a rather apt analogy.

    It was never the Russians, it was 4chan.

    “33) Wikileaks not involved in 09/11 but ClimateGate gave them & GOP a fabulous template on how to engineer maximum damage to their opponents”

    We all know this guy is simply wrong about Wikileaks and the Climategate emails, right? I once saw Assange give a talk where he lamented, adorned with that shit-eating ‘aren’t I naughty?’ smirk of his, that he wasn’t given more credit for the Climategate dump, because he’d leaked it first!

    Here’s the original wikileaks dump, from November 2009: https://wikileaks.org/wiki/Climatic_Research_Unit_emails,_data,_models,_1996-2009

    And IF Climategate was an intelligence op it certainly wasn’t ‘pro GOP’, it was pro oil and gas. Any support of the GOP is a means to an end, not an end in itself.

    Assange played the media – and what a bunch of hapless marks they are – out of his autistic commitment to ideological purity, not to benefit the GOP. Assange may, of course, be being played, in turn. Currently the net result of all this is President Trump. If Trump’s the answer someone is asking recklessly stupid questions.
