Hillary’s Oops Charade

HCOopsHillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while serving as our country’s Secretary of State is either big deal or not – depending on which side of the political aisle you stand on.

Sure, the rules state that government officials are supposed to use the official email server for reasons of security, propriety and not least of all because they provide a durable record of the official communications made by the official on behalf of the American People – whom they are supposed to represent.

Clinton, of course, claims that she has the right to privacy in her email and says that neither the federal government nor anyone else has the right to review them. This, even though, just as corporate employees have no “expectation of privacy” in their business email interactions, likewise the State Department’s official policy is that “No one creating records on an official government network has an individual ‘privacy right’ to demand that their emails or e-records should be shielded beyond the reach of public access.”

But that was precisely why Hillary created her own email server.

Hillary Clinton is a lawyer after all. Like her husband, who when asked if he lied about having had a relationship with Monica Lewinsky famously said, “That depends on what your definition of ‘is’ is.” Hillary utilizes a rather deft, lawyerly parsing of words when she says claims that her emails are private. She knows that here emails don’t fall under the government’s stated policy because her emails were not created on an official government network, and so they are – technically speaking – exempt.

This is classic Clinton triangulation: State Department emails are public, these are not State Department emails, therefore these emails need not be made public. And all that’s required politically for this dodge to work is that she hold a press conference and play it all off as a simple, silly mistake.

But the Clintons do not make silly political mistakes. Hillary Clinton does not pick out a pants suit without considering how it might effect her eventual presidential run.

No, this was certainly premeditated. Hillary Clinton set up this private, home-based email server specifically so that her actions and communications could be edited, sanitized against the prying eyes and the judgmental second-guessing of the unanointed.

Don’t forget, this is the same woman whose very first move following the apparent suicide of her dear friend and associate Vince Foster was to dispatch staffers to his law offices to purge his files of any incriminating evidence relating to the Whitewater investigation.

This is a girl who knows how to cover her tracks.

So now the media will be parrying this political volleyball back and forth. On the left the claim will be that the mistake was trivial, a minor breach of protocol and ultimately inconsequential. On the right they will decry the breach of security and the betrayal of the public trust.

I have no doubt that, if made public, Clinton’s email would expose myriad crimes and corruptions, from the petty to the profound. She is after all a Clinton.

But first and foremost, she is a creature of the Machine. The very same machine which spawned Bill Clinton, Barack Obama… the very same Machine which gave us George Bush I and II. This machine is the sole, true power in this country. It is the long-game, industrial/financial cartel which steers the country and the world toward a succession of financial bubbles and wars of aggression, with the sole aim of enhancing their own power while suppressing and enslaving the unwashed masses of the world.

And what is most interesting about the Clinton email scandal is the very fact that it has come to light at all. Given that all main stream media outlets are owned by a handful of corporations; and therefore, little more than the public relations organs for the Machine, you have to wonder what their willingness to run this story means for the ultimate viability of the Clinton candidacy.

Because in a Machine-controlled media, no story gets published unless it supports the agenda of the elite. The romantic notion of the intrepid, investigative reporter tirelessly tracking a story is a current day fiction, if it ever existed at all. Today all reporters are simply assets of the system, nothing more. You can bet the farm that any journalist who receives these kinds of inside tips or leaks is one who has been selected and pre-approved by the powers-that-be to present the story to the public in a manner which supports their overarching agenda.

So if you reverse-engineer the so-called “leak” about Hillary’s emails, what you find is a Machine which might just have turned on Hillary. Perhaps it’s because of her “What difference does it make?!” performance on Benghazi, or maybe it’s her husbands connection to pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s Lolita Express jet-sex parties.

Whatever the reason, anti-Hillary stories like this may indicate that the establishment no longer considers her a viable candidate for head puppet to their freak show.

And theirs are the only votes that really matter.

Why Destroy America?

Americans are greatest, most goodhearted, naive and stupidest people on the planet.

We want to believe in the inherent goodness of people. When we see a someone manifesting evil or acting in a inexplicably destructive fashion, we’re compelled to imagine that there must be a “reason” for such aberrant behavior. You see this when a wife or a husband kills their spouse. We are so quick to accept any rationale that will explain the murder: she must have had a secret lover, or he did it for the insurance money... Our minds just don’t want to believe that someone’s behavior can be simply an expression of pure evil.

It is this baseline belief in the goodness of our fellow man that blinds us to  much of the malevolence in the world.

Today, the ruling class in this country is executing an agenda that is destroying our economy, lobotomizing our people, dismantling our freedoms and turning what was once a great republic into a fascist dictatorship.

But even though this evilarchy is enacting this national take-down right before our eyes, the vast majority of Americans cannnot, or will not see it… why?

It’s because they cannot conceive of a rationale which can explain why a government – which they believe inherently has our national interests in mind – would intentionally inflict injury on our country and our people.

Being unable to fathom the motivations of villainous actors causes us to deny and ignore the evil they perpetrate. Instead, we wave off the shrill warnings of those who are alarmed, and in effect we simply refuse to believe that which we simply cannot comprehend.

This denial of the uncomfortable does not bode well for our society. It’s quite likely that one day we are going to realize that our nation was undone by our own political naivete, our profound lack of imagination and our shameful apathy.

But for today, let’s ask the question afresh: Why would the powers-that-be intentionally take down the United States’ economy and in doing so thrust the nation, and world, into yet another cataclysmic depression?

The answer, I’m afraid, is that the money powers require exactly such a catastrophic world collapse in order to enact the “solutions” which are in fact essential steps in their continuing strategy for world control and domination. Americans, you see, had gotten a bit too uppity for their liking. We had gotten used to life-sustaining wages, to ample and affordable health care, to leisure time and vacations, pensions and social security. In short, Americans were far too comfortable, and  comfort leads to independence. And if there’s one thing the ruling elite cannot abide, it’s an independent populace. What they want instead is obedient workers – to staff their offices and factories; they want gluttonous consumers – to purchase and consume the poisonous crap they pump out; and they want docile voters – to rubber stamp their hand selected political puppets and accept their self-serving policies and their illegal wars.

This is all part of their long standing mode of operation. The elite have always known that in a “free” society you must maintain the nominal consent of the people in order to effect major policy changes, such as sweeping alterations of laws or the initiation of wars. They know that the people – who treasure peace and stability – will resist dramatic societal changes, unless those changes are seen as necessary due to some extreme conditions.

So, when the ruling classes want to make major changes, they know that they must first create the crisis which requires the “solutions” they desire. If it’s done correctly, the people will suspect nothing and believe naively that the premeditated measures were done purely for the greater good.

But the interests of the rich and powerful rarely coincide with those of the people, and always serve to provide the elites with greater wealth, greater power and greater control over the people, governments and resources of the world.

So we live in a country constantly engaged in illegal and undeclared war. We demonize sovereign nations who refuse to be co-opted by our Anglo-American financial imperium. We sign-on to international trade agreements that enrich corporations while shelling our economy. We pass legislation that take away our freedoms and dismantle our Bill of Rights. We are subjected to a levels of surveillance that the Nazis would have envied and an increasingly militarized police state that is chillingly Gestapo-like. We kill people indiscriminately with our drones, torture and imprison without due process.

Let me ask you… are these the policies and practices of a benevolent, freedom loving democracy?

Or are the instead indicative of a government overruled – and in the service of – a military, industrial, corporate, financial cartel, bent on exerting and expanding its control over a vast, world-wide empire.

Do the math yourself. Connect the dots.

And while you’re doing so, take a moment to consider why you so reflexively support and defend the status quo. For it’s one thing to hope for the best. But when we ignore the existence of evil, we also enable it.
