4. Hi latest one............

Paraphrased: "22 million emails deleted by Bush/Cheney but everybody please pretend you didn't read this and be outraged at Hillary"

So, I think your concern over Hillary's emails has been duly noted by John.

3. There may or may not be any long term problem for Hillary in the long run

but so far her handling of this issue has not been very inspiring, this was started by her choice of handling all of her email via a nongovernment email server not some made up scandal or right wing conspiracy. Making jokes or blaming someone else will not help. Hillary needs to step up and sit down and answer questions in a straight forward way. Hillary needs to have less yes men and women around her she need advisers who will deliver bad news and not paper over the problems in her campaign, unless she changes soon she will continue to drop in the polls to the point where even Trump could beat her.

5. Perhaps this will help you -

http://www.timesreporter.com/article/20150823/OPINION/150829769/2011/OPINION/?Start=1


Which normal standards? According to, yes, The New York Times: “When (Clinton) took office in 2009 ... the State Department allowed the use of home computers as long as they were secure ... There appears to have been no prohibition on the exclusive use of a private server; it does not appear to be an option anyone had thought about.”

So why are we talking about this at all? No secretary of state previous to Clinton had a government email account.

See, if Hillary would just quit fighting for herself and her issues, they (the media) could quit ganging up on her.


pesky damn facts

6. Some more "pesky damn facts"

June 29, 2011: A State Department cable to employees is issued under Clinton’s signature (as are all cables) after Google revealed that hackers were targeting the personal e-mail accounts of U.S. government employees. The cable warns: “Avoid conducting official Department business from your personal e-mail accounts.”

August 2012: The State Department inspector general issues a scathing report on the performance of U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Scott Gration that includes criticism of the fact he used a private e-mail account to handle “sensitive but unclassified” material. Gration is later fired.

“The Ambassador’s requirements for use of commercial e-mail in the office and his flouting of direct instructions to adhere to Department policy have placed the information management staff in a conundrum: balancing the desire to be responsive to their mission leader and the need to adhere to Department regulations and government information security standards,” the IG report said.

Feb. 1, 2013: Clinton steps down as secretary of state.

7. February 2, 2013. A type of disconnected logic illustrated by this post amounting to nothing begins.

8. You forgot to link? Perhaps it is from wikileaks -

State department cables were hosted by the DOD which is why Chelsea Manning (and perhaps others) was able to download more than a quarter of a million of them and pass on to wikileaks.

My point is Hillary may be able to put the to rest but so far the way she has been handling this issue has not been her finest hour
