Everyone is up-in-arms about the so-called “Russian Hacking”. “The Russians were behind the leaking of the emails!!” “The Russians hacked into the Democrats emails!!” “The Russians tried to steer the election!!” Pundits and opinion journalists, many on the left and right, are taking up the mantle of attacking “Outside Influences” who were trying to “shape the American Election”. And Every Last One Of Them, Public And Private Speakers Both, Have Got It Wrong!!!
Why am I the only voice out here saying “I DON’T CARE WHO HACKED THE EMAILS!!” If the Russians wanted to hack something, as well as the Chinese, I’m damn sure their actors are probably intent on our infrastructure, our industry, our finance, and those politicians currently in office who are corruptible and easily blackmailed. Trying to do anything with our election would be akin to trying to stop the flow of the Mississippi River with a seine net: Ya gonna have to wait a few million years to see any effect.
You see, the real issue, the issue everyone and their brother are blithely ignoring is: IF HILLARY HADN’T HAD HER EMAILS ON A PRIVATE SERVER, BUT ON THE GOVERNMENT, STATE DEPARTMENT, EMAIL SERVER, SHE WOULD NEVER, I MEAN, NEVER , HAD HER EMAILS HACKED!!! IF THE DNC WASN’T COLLABORATING WITH HILLARY, THEY WOULDN’T HAVE THE EMAILS THAT WERE RELEASED!!!.
The truth is, Hillary Clinton used an ILLEGAL server to keep her emails private from scrutiny by the government that she WORKED FOR. These emails are rightfully the province of the US Government, and should have been placed on government servers and archived properly for the official government records. Yes, Hillary could have had a private email ACCOUNT, which is radically different than a SERVER. An account is hosted elsewhere, with access by the government through necessary warrants. Private emails have been used by other Secretaries of State, but NONE, absolutely NONE, have used a private SERVER. That is placing vital government security information OUTSIDE the security of government protection, and available for hacking, which is what happened.
Hillary Clinton knowingly, and with malice aforethought, decided to use a private server, knowing, herself, that this was a violation of several US laws, codes, and regulations. Hillary signed a document acknowledging this. And yet she decided to do this, even when she was reprimanding her own staff for using private emails themselves. A case of “Do as I say, not as I do”. Hillary Clinton and her team should not be amazed that they then are hacked by outside forces, regardless of who it is. The DNC are clamoring that the Russians hacked their servers. The problem is, the DNC are using this as an excuse to had the fact they collaborated to deny the nomination to any other candidate but Hillary.
This is the age-old case of trying to shoot the messenger for the message. You cannot, just cannot, blame the hackers for the problems with the emails. Hillary Clinton decided to place herself above the law, assuming that she was invincible. The DNC played fast and loose with the Democrat nomination process and the run-up to the election. These are incontrovertible facts. Just because they came from hacked emails does not make them less so. If Hillary wanted to have her emails protected, she should have NOT used a private server, but used a State Department email account, as others before her have done. The DNC should have played fair with all of the candidates for the Democrat nomination, not structure the nomination to support only Hillary.
These are the facts. No one who’s emails have been placed on public display have had the temerity to claim that the emails were, in fact, not theirs. Not one denial has come forth. The truth is, no one should give a damn about WHO hacked the emails. That is a Smoke and Mirrors ploy, used to distract from the real truth. The real truth is that Hillary Clinton used an illegal server to circumvent the government rules and laws concerning archiving of government correspondence. The real truth is that the DNC used illegal acts to circumvent nominating anyone but Hillary Clinton. Personnel associated with the DNC and the Democrat Party flagrantly violated the trust, as well, in some cases, as the law, in paving Hillary’s ascent to the nomination. THESE are the things that should have people riled up, as Americans. We are supposed to have a fair and equitable system of governance, as well as the means of fairly selecting who we want to govern. Hillary Clinton, as well as the democrat elites, strived to circumvent those rules we have in place. This is what makes me mad.
I don’t care who hacked the emails. Truthfully, if they weren’t there in the first place, there wouldn’t be a problem. So the people we should be mad at, the ones that should be brought to justice, are not the hackers, but those who would attempt to subvert our system of democracy for their own personal power. The hackers just showed us who they are, and what they were trying to do, nothing more…
