BREAKING: Hillary Clinton Put Spies’ Lives at Risk

It's not the 'nothing-burger' Clinton allies have tried to portray -- lives are literally at stake

For months you’ve read about EmailGate in this column. I’ve elaborated how Hillary Clinton, the apparent Democratic frontrunner for President this year, put large amounts of classified information at grave risk through slipshod security practices by herself and her staff. Now that scandal has taken a significant turn for the more ominous.

Last Friday afternoon the State Department’s latest court-mandated release of Hillary Clinton’s emails from when she was Secretary of State caused a new political firestorm. While many more emails were released by Foggy Bottom, some with redactions due to classified materials they contained, twenty-two emails totaling thirty-seven pages of text were withheld entirely at the request of the Intelligence Community. Those twenty-two emails, deemed “unclassified” by Ms. Clinton and her staff, were judged to be Top Secret in reality.

Since Top Secret is the U.S. Government’s highest official classification level, this revelation exploded months of denials from the Clinton presidential campaign that Hillary had done no wrong. The Federal government defines Top Secret materials as “information, the unauthorized disclosure of which reasonably could be expected to cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security.” The disclosure of Top Secret information is a serious criminal matter that normal Americans face prosecution and substantial jail time for perpetrating.

And what about those 30,000 emails that Ms. Clinton had deleted? “I’ll spend the rest of my career trying to figure out what classified information was in those,” stated an exasperated Pentagon counterintelligence official, “everybody is mad as hell right now.” “The worst part,” the counterspy added,” is that Moscow and Beijing have that information but the Intelligence Community maybe never will.”

THR: Hillary Clinton Campaign Unleashes New Onslaught of Attacks Against Bernie Sanders



With the primaries in Iowa now being neck and neck, Hillary Clinton's campaign and those closely associated with it unleashed a new onslaught of attacks against Bernie Sanders that are highly problematic. We break down each of them.

TYT: Why Bernie Sanders Has Excellent Chance of Winning Now

Here comes Bernie! New polls show Hillary Clinton’s Iowa lead is all but gone… within the margin of error. She has been put on Bern notice. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down.

Just saw this on Facebook

Explain Me This

I appreciate that Jeb! is the brother and son of a president, but he is polling at 3% yet the national media keep going to him to hear what he has to say about whatever. Clearly, we Democrats don't give a sh%t what he has to say and apparently 97% of Republican primary voters don't either.


That being said, shouldn't the media be giving Martin O'Malley more air time to voice his opinions? You can clearly see by my Avatar that I am a Sanders supporter, but fair is fair.

TYT: Hillary Backpedals On Republican “Enemies” Comment





Hillary Clinton was at a town hall event and was asked if she would extend an olive branch to Republicans. Ms. Clinton’s response did not inspire confidence in progressives. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was actually one who cringed when she said she was happy to be enemies with them, but I believe Cenk has a point; these pigs have no interest in compromise. But maybe she is untrustworthy on her back pedal, given that seems to be a trait she is assigned: untrustworthy.

Here you go

I offered to buy my mother a Hillary Clinton bumper sticker. I want Bernie, but she's my momma so I just purchased this for her car...





With all the vitriol on DU, I thought I would let you know that there is no love lost..

Romney gains 15 points to tie Obama in New Hampshire after first debate

Mitt Romney, President Obama now tied in New Hampshire, according to poll

By Callum Borchers

Mitt Romney has pulled even with President Obama in New Hampshire, according to a poll released late Monday by the Suffolk University Political Research Center.

Romney had been fading in the Granite State before his spirited effort in the first presidential debate two weeks ago. A poll published on Oct. 1 by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center showed Obama with a 15-point lead.

Last week, a UNH poll conducted partly before and partly after the debate in Denver gave the president only a 6-point edge.

Now, the Suffolk poll, taken entirely after the first presidential debate and the lone vice presidential debate, shows Romney tied with Obama at 47 percent. The survey included 500 likely voters and had a margin of error of 4.4 percentage points.

Why Wall Street Loves Hillary (from 11/11/14)

Hillary Clinton has finally shown her hand. After having sat out the financial crisis and all the economic turmoil that has followed in the past six years—and with good reason, since for most of that time she was tending to the nation’s diplomacy as secretary of state—she is proving to be an anti-Wall Street populist too, and as much a socialist as her former boss, President Obama.

But here’s the strange thing: Down on Wall Street they don’t believe it for a minute. While the finance industry does genuinely hate Warren, the big bankers love Clinton, and by and large they badly want her to be president. Many of the rich and powerful in the financial industry—among them, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman, Tom Nides, a powerful vice chairman at Morgan Stanley, and the heads of JPMorganChase and Bank of America—consider Clinton a pragmatic problem-solver not prone to populist rhetoric. To them, she’s someone who gets the idea that we all benefit if Wall Street and American business thrive. What about her forays into fiery rhetoric? They dismiss it quickly as political maneuvers. None of them think she really means her populism.

Although Hillary Clinton has made no formal announcement of her candidacy, the consensus on Wall Street is that she is running—and running hard—and that her national organization is quickly falling into place behind the scenes. That all makes her attractive. Wall Street, above all, loves a winner, especially one who is not likely to tamper too radically with its vast money pot.

(So in addition to funding unnecessary wars, I presume we will bail out Wall Street again should she become president. And they haven't learned their lesson from 2008; why would they, as they have not suffered for it like the rest of us)

I realize this is an old story, but it shouldn't be forgotten.
