The E-mail Jinx .

Come on Mr. Trump . Let the Russians
do it .
 Donald J. Trump said Wednesday that he hoped Russia had hacked Hillary Clinton’s email, essentially encouraging an adversarial foreign power to cyberspy on a secretary of state’s correspondence. Mr. Trump’s call was an extraordinary moment at a time when Russia is being accused of meddling in the United States’ presidential election. His comments came amid questions about the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s computer servers, which American intelligence agencies have told the White House they have "high confidence” was the work of the Russian government.First came the hack, then the leak. Now, the Clinton and Trump campaigns are fighting over Russia’s role in the release of thousands of internal Democratic National Committee emails. The idea that a major-party candidate would conspire with a foreign power to influence a US election is an implausible hypothesis that the mainstream media may have difficulty reporting on, and not merely because of bias or caution, but because the public may not fully absorb it.  At least one thing is clear: The email uproar is an unwelcome distraction at the launch of the Democratic National Convention, inflaming the rift between supporters of Hillary Clinton and primary rival (00)>>Bernie Sanders just when the party was hoping to close it. (1)>>For Mrs. Clinton e-mails are jinx . Honestly,  I think that the GOP is responsible for the "leaks" of her e-mail. Not the Russians . I feel sorry for Bernie Sanders', as much as he campaigned , how honest he seemed to American politics , he was just a puppet in a scheme,  the political elite of both parties have shown what they really are. And, unfortunately in Bernie's case, after getting screwed he decided to join the political elite   . My respect for the GOP is no better . The GOP had all a long wanted to   have Trump as their nominee. I have been suspicious that both debates were a rouse on either party .  The Democrats wanted Hillary all a long . Its really obvious if you think through all the political smoke.  (2)>>The Republicans are going to do enough damage to Mrs. Clinton its obvious , that the e-mail scandal is brimming (3)>>like something out of Watergate ..... Reflecting back with the Benghazi scandal that whole cover up was on Obama than it was so on the shoulders on Hillary . Hillary openly said in an interview that she was the "fall guy". Taking the "blame" put Hillary up for endless mud slinging . No one questioned Obama's role as commander in chief (lack of ,,,)  in responding to the Benghazi attack .The most obvious security issue with Clinton running her own email server,is the lack of manpower overseeing it compared with the State Department’s official email system. The federal agency’s own IT security team monitors State Department servers for possible vulnerabilities and breaches, and those computers fall under the NSA’s protection, A more specific threat to Clinton’s private email relates to its domain name. Unlike the State Department’s domain, Clinton’s is currently registered with a private domain registrar.
Wasserman Schultz. Mystery.
As Debbie Wasserman Schultz made her unceremonious exit as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, what was most remarkable was what you didn’t hear: practically anybody coming to her defense. Was she really responsible? Politics is a game, you know  . Debbie Wasserman Schultz in a e-mail favored Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders throughout the primary.  What makes no sense is,  we are  just judging Delegate favoritism which is also run amok in the RNC  . The Republicans have favored Trump, so who rigged it for Trump? Sanders supporters have long called for the resignation of Wasserman Schultz, who they viewed as impartial and as rigging the system to favor Hillary Clinton.Those complaints resonated louder than ever Friday when hacked emails, posted on by WikiLeaks, showed the staff of the Democratic Party working to hurt Sanders and help Clinton. Early Sunday, Sanders reiterated his call for her resignation. Fending off criticism over leaked Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails and on the heels of a public shaming at a Florida delegate breakfast during the party's convention, embattled DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz could now face a formal legal complaint over some of the information in the hacked emails.. The internal Democratic National Committee emails, stretching back to April 2016, released by Wikileaks show that the organization’s senior staff chafed at Bernie Sanders’s continued presence in the presidential primary. Staffers were also irritated by criticism that they were biased towards Hillary Clinton.Democrats have known about the hack since April, when party officials discovered malicious software on their computers.They called in a cybersecurity firm, CrowdStrike, which found traces of at least two sophisticated hacking groups on the Democrats’ network, both with ties to the Russian government.Those hacks vacuumed up at least a year’s worth of chats, emails and research on Trump, according to a person knowledgeable about the breach who wasn’t authorized to discuss it publicly.The party publicly acknowledged the hack in June. With Wasserman Schultz gone, the DNC officers are now cleaning up the mess. They spent a significant amount of the meeting Monday drafting a formal apology, which they sent out later in the day.

(00)>>Bernie Sanders. Sanders royally screwed up by not re-registering as a Democrat in Vermont and paying up his dues to the Democratic Party and getiing his membership card, then making a list of all the requirements in the different states so his followers would be eligible to vote in those states' primaries. He was either lazy or inefficient or both. Maybe some of it had to do with his disdain for the political parties, one of which he wanted to use as a vehicle to become president. That disdain and failure to make that list may have cost him his only chance to ever run for president in the general election. (1)>>For Mrs. Clinton e-mails are jinx . The Times story and that Clinton’s daughter Chelsea had an email account on the same domain name. (Which is a truly bizarre point, since every employee at the State Department—down to the lowliest person on the rung of authority—would be using the same domain name as Clinton if she was on the federal system.) Then there’s a statement from the White House press office that President Barack Obama issued guidance that federal employees should use federal emails—without any suggestion when this guidance was given and with specific statements that folks could still use private email accounts if they had document preservation systems in place.  (2)>>The Republicans are going to do enough damage to Mrs. Clinton its obvious . Mr. Trump has largely dismissed assertions that Russia was behind the Democratic committee breach as conspiracy theories — a view he reiterated again when he said the hack was “probably not Russia.”-- I say how about the Republican Party is responsible ? In a Twitter post of his own, Mr. Trump added: “If Russia or any other country or person has Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 illegally deleted emails, perhaps they should share them with the FBI!”--- I say oh really !(3)>>like something out of Watergate .....Did this happen in 1972, at the Watergate complex, or in 2016, at 430 South Capitol Street Southeast? Was the break-in a physical burglary, or was it a digital theft? Were the apparent perpetrators naturalized Cubans, or were they Russians in the service of the SVR? To paraphrase Mark Twain, history never repeats itself exactly, but there are occasions when it rhymes.
