    To clear up some confusion:
    Wikileaks is tweeting out hashes. They’re not passwords to unlock a file, but a digital fingerprint to prove it’s authenticity. This is likely prep for future releases. Wikileaks will release files related to John Kerry, Ecuador, and the FCO. You can compare the hash of the file that you downloaded with the one in the tweet. If it doesn’t match, you know that your file is not authentic and was tampered. Hashes are useful for any downloads, particularly sensitive ones that Wikileaks releases.

    Anyone see this on any of the MSM? A University of Colorado at Colorado Springs student used a shishkebab skewer to induce an abortion in his live-in companion against her will, authorities allege in painting a grisly picture of ongoing abuse in their home.
    Ahmed Sameer Almesbahi, 23, a Saudi Arabia native in the U.S. on a student VISA, was charged Thursday with 11 counts, including unlawful termination of a pregnancy and sexual assault.
    I verified this story in 3 different pubs including Denver Post.

  11. At a wedding this past weekend. I could sense the Cold Anger from the atendees. I mentioned Trump’s locker room talk and the Womens’ overwhelming response was pro Trump. Granted they were mostly +40 but they knew Hillary and Bill. This was in 7th district VA.

    I get the sense from reading the wikileaks emails, that Podesta et al are just employees doing their job getting Hillary elected. They don’t have a lot faith in her either. They think their boss is an untruthful, unapologetic, unhealthy backstabbing asshole who is making their job very difficult. I wouldn’t be surprised if Podesta voted for Trump.

      I’m reading the “Debate To Do’s” attachment. It’s scripted crap for Hitlery to say during the Flint debate against Sanders.

      5. Toast: I hear Senator Sanders talking about crumbs and loaves and whatnot. Let me tell you something. If your promises don’t add up, they’re toast. [LAUGH AT YOURSELF!]


  18. BabyDoe says:

    This veiled un-endorsement from Bernie Sanders may be a gift to Trump.
    All Trump supporters with an “in” with the Bern, need to encourage him to fully endorse Trump once and for all!


  19. The Boss says:

    Apparently in an attempt at providing equal time, CNBC.com put this up a couple hours ago. It is a good read. One of the authors will be on Squawk Box in the morning.

    This story about Trump cutting ties with the Ohio GOP chair ran in yesterday’s Columbus Dispatch. As an Ohio native living in Columbus, I was well aware of Kasich’s treachery, but I have to admit that I didn’t realize how far the corruption extended in the state GOP. They’re circling the wagons around Borges instead of supporting our nominee. I plan to call every single GOPe mentioned in this article, to put them on notice that their future depends on us, the voters, and we have chosen Trump. If they don’t support him, I will no longer support them. I hope other Ohio Treepers will join me!

    This email was entertaining: https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/8819

    Hi, John, Unsolicited advice from a pr person. Hillary needs to learn to memorize the first 60 to 90 seconds of prepared remarks. Just saw her on the news talking about Trump and his remarks denigrating women. She had great things to say but was reading from a script which made her looked programmed. […]

    Hey, even when she memorizes the script it STILL sounds like she’s reading it. 🙂

    Just a thought … in the Miami speech, the diverse crowd behind HRC holding the little American flags was very cool – and at one point, a small U-S-A chant broke out … Maybe something like this is already in works, but wonder if tomorrow night, we should be more purposeful about generating the U-S-A, U-S-A chants during her riff about the need for togetherness and unity (assuming that’s still part of the speech), with people holding the little American flags – since that’s what America is really about. Would be a subtle, yet powerful, contrast to the angry white guy U-S-A chants at Trump events when he spews un-American hate talk.

    Nothing is genuine about the Hitlery campaign. Even the U-S-A chants.


    • Triggermom says:

      Angry? Excited and proud, not angry. Delusional. The only way libs would chant USA is if it is in the script, as it apparently is.

    Too long to post here, an email from a NYT reporter coordinating with Clinton campaign on an anti-Trump piece. NYT reporter basically lays out Clinton input for them, they just need to approve. https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/4664

    We’re told that President Clinton, like Secretary Clinton and some others, think Trump could pose a real threat in battleground states that President Obama carried in 2008 and 2012 — like Virginia and Ohio — and he will be competitive in Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

    And this was back in February!

    “A Trump election will only delay the inevitable. Most will say that’s a good thing, because any pause allows time to breathe. A respite will give room for soldiers of Tradition and Reality time to regroup after so many years of defeat.
    That’s to one side. To the other is the idea that if it were done when ’tis done, then ’twere well it were done quickly. Rip the bandage off! The fight (many against the few) is coming, let each declare his allegiance and let’s get on with it. Yet a Trump residency on the people’s throne will give progressives time to regather, too, and given there are so many more of them, they’ll be able to do more. Why not light the fuse now and get it over with?

    Ah, all democracies end the same way. There’s good and bad whichever way the election goes. Might as well take what comfort you can.”


    I discovered your site yesterday. I also visited my online friend’s blog, from whom I just quoted.

    When he says a Trump election will only delay the inevitable, he has in mind the pattern of history described famously by Spengler. (We are both reading Oswald Spengler these days.)
    When he says ‘there are so many more of them’, I have misgivings about it. It’s hard to tell, really, and even the election results won’t give a reliable answer.

    In any case, an interesting thought to be less fatalistic and take what comfort we can.

    Watch the James O’Keefe Project Veritas video released today. Despicable – paying mentally ill people to protest at Trump rallies and so much more. The corruption runs deep. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5IuJGHuIkzY

    There has been lots of misinformation about Trump pulling out of VA. Anyone who is a volunteer on the Trump campaign would not be “bummed out” about Trump pulling out because they, myself included know that is patently false. John Fredericks, who is co-chair of the Trump campaign in VA has said it’s not true. The campaign is beginning to run ads in VA because they know there’s a good chance he’ll win VA. Beware the of the trolls who say they are supporting Trump but post negative comments about the polls, etc. Just forget about all the negativity and vote on November 8. It’s all about the numbers. Elections can only be rigged no more than 4 or 5% and the sheer number of votes for Trump can and will overcome the fraud.
