A WikiLeaks summary

Break usefully summarizes the massive WikiLeaks email dump in a manner the average reader can follow:
As of tonight, WikiLeaks has now released roughly 32,000 out of the 50,000 emails that it claims to have obtained from John Podesta’s hacked email account. If that weren’t enough, James O’Keefe and his whistle-blowing organization, Project Veritas, is in the process of releasing a video series that is packed with damning evidence against the Hillary Clinton campaign machine.

Both the Podesta emails and the O’Keefe videos paint a clear picture of a rigged election; predictably, both have been met with virtual radio silence on behalf of the mainstream media. With so many facts flying around and so much diversion from the Clinton camp and beyond, it can be difficult to figure out what is truly going on. This article aims to help sort everything out.

WIKILEAKS – What is it?

WikiLeaks is a non-profit organization founded by Julian Assange in 2006. Its stated purpose is to hold world governments accountable by bringing the truth to light, usually by obtaining sensitive “leaked” documents and publishing them on the internet. Since its inception, WikiLeaks and Assange have been involved in a dizzying number of diplomatic controversies due to the organization’s penchant for embarrassing powerful leaders around the globe.

Since 2012, Assange has been operating out of the Ecuador embassy in London, who granted him asylum after he had been charged by Swedish authorities for rape. Assange has soundly denied the charges, insisting that they are part of the American government’s ploy to extradite him and stem the flow of its secret internal documents.

What do the Podesta leaks contain?

It is important to emphasize that the leaks represent an enormous cross-section of Podesta’s emails. That means that many of the emails are simply mundane work emails of no importance to the American public.

The rest of the emails, however, unearth a complex and cozy web of connections: one between the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee back in the primary; various ties between the Clinton Foundation and several foreign powers with dubious motives; and an insidious marriage of the Clinton machine and the mainstream media.
If you're not entirely certain what the emails contain, or why they are significant, this is a useful guide to what has been released to date.

Yeah, but Donald Trump said pussy when he owned a beauty pageant. Plus rayciss.

And my summary: If it wasn't important they wouldn't be killing nuisances like any whistle blowing ambassadors in the way of shipping weapons to ISIS or moderate rebels trying to out barrel bomb throwing Assad who stands in the way of a gas pipeline that can cut into Russia's supply deal to Europe and make us all very rich people indeed. Soros party rich. Rich rich rich - mind the body bags, you oaf, you left them in our driveway!

Oh, and Rayciss. This right wing extremist opposition to wealth creation has to stop. Did I mention what we did to the others, nudge, nudge. You're next. When my voting machines give me the victory Women deserve.

This is an interesting thought. I had been considering if the American system of government, with a head of government outside the legislature, was adaptable to the 21st century. Whether it makes sense to have an executive branch. I'm certainly not proposing a change, but with the blatant and utter disrespect the Obama Administration has shown Congress in the past 8yrs (choosing which laws to enforce or not enforce, for example), I wonder if an English/French system where the head of state remains independent and the head of government becomes part of the legislature is not a superior system to fight entrenched corruption in the 21st century. I'm sure it has its pluses and minuses. I still remember watching John Major get raked over the coals in Questions for the PM on C-Span when I was a tween... witty fellow, made for good entertainment if nothing else.

Seems like more pressure than anything. If it was a real law to resign, Tony Blair would have been kicked out early on into the Iraq War.

I notice that around Federal election time, when the Southrons need northern states for EP's or Congressional seats or whatever, that the word "Yankee" ceases to be a common demonym and it is replaced with words like "heartland". Not saying you specifically are a Southron or not, but "Yankee" gets shelved until about Nov 9 I'm guessing, when some part or other of our performance in the election will be picked apart. Full disclosure: from Wisconsin, home of the Iron Brigade y'all.

I can't speak for the UK, but in NZ politicians have been stepped down, or 'decided to spend more time with their family', for quite minor infractions, and question time is a big part of that, because it allows politicians to attack their opponent in an open and equitable forum. Question time does only builds pressure, but it's very strong pressure. Hillary Clinton would be long gone in NZ, and Tony may have been too.

Anonymous Jimbo October 26, 2016 9:29 PM  

Main difference with parliamentary system is their own party would be itching to replace them if they stayed mired in scandal; a cabinet minister could then step up into the leadership role without an election. The party can force the vote in many cases even if the prime minister wants to hang on. In the USA you have a single chosen successor (vp) who usually 'gets their turn' later if they just wait, so less internal pressure to purge the (visibly) corrupt leader. That said, USA elections are more entertaining...

Anonymous Just another commenter October 26, 2016 9:40 PM  

@16 - for some sufficiently brutal definition of "entertaining." I don't think I'm getting an ulcer, but jeez....

Actually, what I'd like to see is some sort of proportional representation by policy, rather than region. Each state gets a number of representatives by the current formula, or some approximation of it (call that X). As many parties / people as want to run. The top X candidates go to DC, and each of them casts a weighted vote for whatever fraction of the population in their state voted for them. That would give fringe parties some voice, at least. The current winner-take-all really makes only two parties viable, and provides a strong incentive for them to effectively collude on many policies, because they lock out the competition.

On whether it is a law that a lying Government Minister can be forced to resign, in NZ a minister (or any person) can be charged with "Contempt of Parliament" for lying to the House; but for various reasons a minister would normally resign (or be sacked) before there was any real threat of a vote to convict him or her.

Ministers, even important ones like the Foreign Minister (our equivalent to the Secretary of State), can be and often are sacked, basically for the offence of becoming a sustained political embarrassment to the Prime Minister.

As for the PM himself, that is more difficult. He would have to be publicly abandoned by some of his own party colleagues, and it takes a lot for that. The very public disunity, coupled with the risk that whoever replaces the PM will not on the whole be an improvement (maybe the replacement is more honest but less competent), means that often the governing party will try to brazen it out until the election if they think they can get away with it. But if the PM becomes truly odious, they may take the risk.

And, Just Another Commenter, proportional representation by party (if not by individual policies) has its downsides. You do get more party viewpoints represented in the legislature, and its composition more accurately represents the proportions of voters nationwide, but half or more of your individual legislators end up accountable solely to party hierarchies and cannot be "voted out" even in principle. The need for a functional legislature also tends to mean that parties are grouped into "the government" and "the opposition" so something like a two-party system still persists.

With all that has come out with Wikileaks and Project Veritas and still the MSM refuses to report fairly on it, I believe that truth and justice is done in the USA, regardless of the outcome of the election. A generation of Marxist indoctrination, with science and psychotherapy as religion, has so dulled the moral compass of Americans that they no longer know right from wrong. Everyone does what is right in their own eyes. Judgment is upon us no matter who wins the election. Hopefully, America will break up somewhat peaceably with violence limited to SMSA's.

I hope Trump wins, appoints a herd of special prosecutors for Her Nastyness and her henchmen, and rubs the media's face in the corrupt collusion. Make it merciless. Rip the curtain down and expose the "wizard" for all to see. Give a weekly speech where he rips some department or group a new one, domestically or internationally. Give the media a heaping of shame, but also a lot of targets where he can throw them red meat, and berate them if they don't run it to ground.

@20 - term limits would help a lot. Make it a way-point, not a career. Of course, if you could just cut spending and programs to constitutionally allow ones, there would not be so much spending/pork, and there'd be a lot less incentive to go there for the power, because the position hasn't got much.

Blogger Lazarus October 27, 2016 1:06 AM  

There is nothing like the question period in the parliamentary system that exists in the American system. It is a direct attack from the opposition benches on the government that must be responded to immediately and publicly.

This is what America gave up in their revolution, and has resulted in their subsequent demise.

@20, @26. You can have a parliamentary system with gridlock: may I introduce you to Australia, which has the lower house and upper house elected using some odd form of STV (you rank the candidates) which, for the senate, leads to the odious Greens being courted to get anyting done.

NZ has MMP, which means we have the Greens in Parliament, with Zero (no) electorate MPs. This was because we got sick of the PM being a functional dictator under FPP. On Balance, MMP is worse.

NZ has a supreme court but no constitution or bill of rights that over rides other legislation and no senate. Given a chance, we would half the size of parliament, which is why no government ever lets that go to a referendum.

Clinton is a creature of her party. The Democrats made her. She would never survive in NZ as a politican. No one can survive in OZ as one.

Then you would just always have a new inexperienced elected official, even more dependent on the big donors and machine politics due to lack of personal connection to the electorate, getting steamrolled and bamboozled by the permanent "civil" "servants". The transnational managerial class would have even freer rein to enact unaccountable tyranny.

The only correct solution is to take away their power entirely. Make it so that it isn't worth it to give them money. Destroy the empire, and restore the subsidiarity of the federal system.
