WikiLeaks Releases Over 1,200 Clinton Emails on Iraq War

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

WikiLeaks on Monday marked the yearly celebration of American independence by releasing over 1,200 private emails belonging to former secretary of state and presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton pertaining to the Iraq War.

I have read numerous articles recently about how Trump lies all the time, which he does. Maybe these emails will show how Hillary does the same, only hers were all about getting us and Britain into the Iraq War where maybe a million people are dead as a result of her lies, her husband's lies, and the lies of 9/11. The difference between Trump's lies and Hillary's lies are not just about scale, though. Hillary, Bill, and the Neocons told the lies that most people in power wanted to hear to justify continual warfare, which is why all of them should be in the Hague for war crimes.

Let us hope that Bill being caught in his attempt at a "soft intimidation" of AG Lynch at the Phoenix airport makes it impossible for the Obama administration to quash any FBI recommendation for the prosecution of Red Queen Hillary. In other words: COME ON INDICTMENT! I think part of the reason Sanders remains a candidate for President is to see if some misfortune befalls Hillary before the convention, so he can rightfully claim the nomination as the runner-up and not allow the party to easily slip in someone like Biden, who never ran for anything this year.

Last night CNN stepped up the pressure on Bernie to formally suspend his campaign by running a piece critical of the cost of his ongoing Secret Service detail ($40K/day) until he is officially no longer a candidate. Well, as a citizen, I say it's a small price to pay to have the alternative to crooked Hillary available and safe for us. #NeverHillary.

A cesspool of rot and corruption.

Minorities are forced to work harder and show greater loyalty to their patrons.

Why?

First, because they know that their positions are rarities. Women and persons of color in TOP positions is a rather new development.

Unfortunately, it replicates the psychology of The House Slave. During the Plantation Period, the House Slave knew he or she had it much better than those out laboring in the fields. To preserve said position, The House Slave would have to show special deference to his or her "masters." And sometimes that also called for reporting on any misdeeds of the slaves.

Eric Holder, Condi Rice, Clarence Thomas, and Loretta Lynch probably don't consciously identify with this pattern, but it's there nonetheless.

It's also true of women--Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Samantha Powers, etc.

Human beings face internal battles between ego/self-advantage and altruism.

The metrics of Power hardly allow for the latter particularly in this phase of Uber Mars Rules.

Last night's mighty "rockets red glare" in so many cities were further testaments to the planet associated with war AND fire-power.

That archetype is exalted in the U.S.A. in the post-Eisenhower phase that indeed led to the primacy of the Military Industrial Complex.

Unfortunately, by hiring so many minorities and placing them in key positions there is the plus side that women and children of color realize they, too, can crash the former glass ceiling. But this kind of rise to fame has its price within a Captured System. If loyalty isn't shown for "their masters," they will be kicked out the doors.

If our system were operating according to its own laws and principles, all of those persons who LIED to pave the way for foreign wars of aggression; and all of those people who twisted language to open the door to torture would be prosecuted; and all of those people who took bribes to bend laws to favor the 1% while leaving the vast majority suffering would also face legal consequences.

But remember, as Sheldon Wollin explained... the Inverted Totalitarian System maintains all of its former symbols and appendages of lawfulness. The courts still operate, elections are still held, the media features a great many seemingly diverse channels... but ALL of it is stage-managed; and one of its key powers comes down to Perception Management.

The appearance of justice will be tolerated, but never its actual deployment. Hillary knows this. She's been a consigliere to dark powers for 3+ decades and is a consummate player of The Great Game.

I just re-read your quote and realized you're not condemning all citizens... but rather explaining that those IN power developed LIES that confirmed their CAUSE FOR WAR... as planned and virtually preordained.

The only prez candidates of integrity and honor - Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein primarily - are being cast aside and sabotaged in favor of corrupt psychopaths and pathological liars - servants of the 1%!

ADDENDUM - FBI director Comey recommends NO Prosecution for Clinton! Was the Bill Clinton "meeting" with Lynch a premeditated ploy to remove/shift responsibility from "Justice" to the FBI via Lynch "recusing" herself??? Its ALL corrupt BS anyway!!!

NO Justice, NO Peace!

The smoking guns are slowly being revealed. Hillary also illegally burned official daily planners/schedules!
"Just two weeks after we exposed the fact that Hillary Clinton's official calendar is "missing" a lot of entries, more 'illegal' allegations are being exposed from her reign as Secretary of State.

In a deposition last week, NYPost reports that Hillary Clinton's cloests aide - Huma Abedin - revelaed that her boss destroyed at least some of her schedules as secretary of state — a revelation that could complicate matters for the presumptive Democratic nominee, who, along with the State Department she ran, is facing numerous lawsuits seeking those public records."

On the Trump side of this hideous political play, his potential choice for VP, Chris Christie has "disappeared" evidence - his cell phone - and stonewalled questions. He also used a personal email account for official business that was not searched.
"Christie has insisted that both his personal and government email accounts were searched - new court documents indicate that a personal email account he shared with his wife, Mary Pat, was never searched — and he used that account to send at least one Bridgegate-related government email"

Leaked emails from Wikileaks regarding an important closed door meeting held by top members of the Democratic National Committee. Items of discussion: important strategy, media spin and what to do if Hillary Clinton is in fact indicted.
From the home office in Sopchoppy, Florida:

Number 9. HILLARY's NEW IT TECH IS NAMED BENJAMIN GAZZI- ANY PROBLEM HERE?

Number 8. SHE STUPIDLY CLAIMED TO BE 'DEAD BROKE' AND IS NOW WORTH $200 MILLION- TOO LATE TO CLAIM IT WAS A LUCKY POWERBALL TICKET?

Number 7. REPORTS ARE SURFACING THAT HER GRANDDAUGHTER's FIRST WORDS WERE 'CROOKED MEEMAW.'

And the Number One thing overheard at recent DNC Strategy Meeting:

#14

I believe all that to be true but what actually did we get from this article? Just that there is emails, nothing more thab speculation. We get all these leaks and whistleblowers get charged with treason and our almost silenced and or jailed.

So Bill just happened to bump into Lynch and wanted to talk about the grandkids? Bullshit. The Clintons are the ultimate political operatives. Saying that, I doubt that this incident will have any negative effect on Shillary and the convention. The Clinton Machine is very influential and the vested interests that they represent want Hillary in the Oval Office. Once again we see that there is no real justice when you attain a certain level of power. Hillary will get the nomination and, most likely, be elected president in November. She will go on to disgrace herself as the first woman president just the way that Obama disgraced himself as the first Black president. The system IS rigged. After a multi-billion dollar dog and pony show we will end up with a person in the White House that the loathsome Charles Koch said he would "work" with. Plus, the Neocons will be pleased. Her foreign policy, based on the arrogant assumption that the U.S. has to control as much of the planet as possible, will result in even more national tragedies and dangerous international brinksmanship.

"... but the FBI could push for concessions from [a] new Clinton government in exchange for its lack of indictment."

What exactly Mr. Assange might be suggesting here is a mystery. Suggests that the US FBI acts autonomously, which neither sounds nor seems plausible.


#18

Thank you Julian Assange!


#19

...if we could trust the integrity of our officials and that our laws would be upheld.


#20

Excellent. This is "Letterman" quality. Thing is, the Clintons are shameless. Even this kind of satire has no effect on them at all.


#23

Thanks.
And you are 100% correct.
Hillary was 'eager' to talk to the FBI.
Who believes that crap?
Time to bring pressure on the Super Delegates- by whatever means necessary-
even satire.


#25

Well you covered it all I guess. The house slave comparison is ridiculous. Who are the house slaves reporting on? Would not Hillary Clinton BE the mistress of the house? Is Jim Comey a woman? An African American?

This is just political corruption, plain and simple. I think it's insulting to people descended from actual slaves to make that comparison. These are elitists who have power and don't know how to use it in a responsible, secure, humanitarian way. And now they will escape responsibility for their hubris.

If you have a strong stomach here are the emails

Without the rule of law applied equally we are ruled by individual humans which has many names and never works out well for the little folks. Do not stand up for the rule of law and you get this..


#27

I stand by what I said.

Loretta Lynch and/or Eric Holder (granted, he's out now) were not going to rock the boat... or be tossed from the Big White Plantation House in Washington.

It's not racist to explain how the RACIST system (that exists) operates and why those it privileges--as tokens--must show deference to it. They are beholden to their benefactors.
