John Podesta emails

If a tree falls in the forest, but the mainstream media doesn’t report on it, does it mean anything?

The mainstream media has treated the Podesta emails as a minor thing compared to Trump talking in a low-class uncouth manner on a videotape. Trump being uncouth is a bigger story than actual corruption in the government.

Trump is doing the right thing by talking it up at his campaign rallies. Hopefully, Trump + Drudge + Breitbart will force the mainstream media to pay attention.

At this point in time, I can’t predict whether or not the Podesta emails will be a game-changer.

  1. I think they bode well for the trajectory of future releases. I’m hopeful that the 30k missing emails from the crooked bathroom server will be coming out in late October.

      • What secret knowledge does Mike Cernovich have?

      • “What secret knowledge does Mike Cernovich have?”

        None. He’s an occasional guest on the Race Wars Podcast (no it’s not what you think, it’s a comedy podcast). He is pretty clear that he uses social media as a promotional tool and will stretch things for the purpose of attracting attention.

  2. Even if Hillary/Podesta EVIL STATEMENTS were video-recorded it wouldn’t make a difference.

    The American public is too stupid to have any understanding or even attention for some thing so “dry” in comparison to pussy grabbing statements.

    Well over half this country’s population are stupid kardashian/careerist bitches and multiculturalism. At least 40% of White Men are clueless boobs, cucks, and/or self-interested weasels.

    How in God’s name does a HERO like Trump get elected in this pool of democracy? Not even counting the voter fraud which WILL be massive and UNREPORTED.

    • Indeed. But the real eye opener has been how ridiculous NeverTrumps are. They’re being manipulated by establishment shills and too stupid to realize it. Then they wonder why they never get what they want. It’s because the establishment herds them like sheep.

    • I don’t think the public is really that stupid, but the majority of them are just not tuned into politics in the way that some of the regular posters on this site are. For probably half of the registered voters, they have just recently started paying attention to the election, and their primary source of information? NBC/CBS/ABC/CNN. If that’s all you heard, what would you think?

      Also there is about a 50 million voter difference between voters who show up every election and those who just show up in Presidential years. THAT is where your “Kardashian” voters are at. And with those numbers, that’s why it’s their country, not ours.

  3. Rodham-Clinton let ambassador Stevens die rather than increase security in Benghazi, then lied about how he was murdered, she broke all kinds of security and transparency rules dealing with official e-mails that are the property of the public and then lied about it, she screwed up health care reform in the ’90s and dealing with Russia in the 21st century, and she is opposed to the 1st Amendment and the 2nd Amendment. If all that hasn’t convinced people she is incompetent, immoral, and a menace, there is nothing else that will.

    • This really is approaching a 3rd-world level of corruption. But then so is having an ex-president’s wife come to power.


      October 13, 2016 at 4:32 am

  4. What I really want to know is why no one is asking why Hillary needed to run a private server anyway?


    October 12, 2016 at 5:07 pm

    • Because government Information Technology is completely incompetent, and Hillary was too lazy, too important, to deal with the stuff that regular everyday government employees deal with.

    • @map,

      The answer I heard was that she didn’t want to deal with FOIA requests. But that always struck me as stupid because even someone as technologically enfeebled as I am knows about hacking. It was a choice of FOIA or getting hacked. I’d rather deal with the FOIA.


      “Because government Information Technology is completely incompetent,”

      What does this mean?

  5. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be anything truly juicy in them…I’ve seen headlines crowing about how detrimental these releases should be to Hillary’s campaign, but every time I click through to the actual corresponding email I’m disappointed by how mundane and un-salacious they seem. They read about the way I’d expect emails of this nature to read. There’s just no “wow” factor a la Trump’s pussy-grabbin tape. There may be better stuff coming, of course, but unless it does, I don’t see this “story” going anywhere meaningful. Hate to say it, but I think Trump is done. It would seriously take a miracle at this point.


    October 12, 2016 at 5:23 pm

    • That’s how I feel about them. Nothing really juicy yet. Most interesting thing so far is Podesta’s interest in UFOs and his risotto recipe.


      October 13, 2016 at 12:56 am

  6. Is there anything interesting in the Podesta emails? Even the emails the right wing blogs and outlets are promoting seem to be pretty lame.


    October 12, 2016 at 5:37 pm

    • Cmon Tom, try harder. You are barely earning your pay.


      October 12, 2016 at 5:55 pm

      • I’m being serious. The main stories about the Podesta emails so far have been that Podesta is really into UFOs and has a good risotto recipe. If these emails are going to sway the election, there needs to be some real dirt, something really juicy in there.


        October 13, 2016 at 12:54 am

    • Tom,

      It’s the big picture. The emails show Hillary in her element, with her peers, discussing the world like it’s a pie, or a box of chocolates, and all the Big Players get their piece. They own us, they decide for us what happens, we go along with the program because they control everything. It’s like listening to the Robber Barons in their clubs, in the early 20th century. This one talks about railroads, that one talks about coal mines, the other talks about shipping….etc.

      But the stuff about their cozy relationship with media figures is the real doozy, IMO. Everyone in “journalism” is part of Their Crowd. There’s an email from a Hollywood literary agent about various issues – it’s as if no one has the slightest bit of self-consciousness that the US is a one-party state.

      Wikileaks is like smashing a spider’s stomach.


      October 12, 2016 at 8:32 pm

      • PS The stuff about Sanders is really kind of heart-breaking, if you were a Berner. A lot of young people were very idealistic and full of passion. I don’t laugh at them. I remember what it was like to be young and to care about change. They got fucked, pure and simple, and the Robber Barons are laughing at them. All of the emails about the Berners have a sneering tone of contempt.


        October 12, 2016 at 8:34 pm

      • I’m sure you’re right that it exposes Hillary’s corruption, but it’d be better to have something really salacious and gossipy.


        October 13, 2016 at 1:02 am

      • Bernie is subhuman scum and so are his supporters. Hillary sucks but I support what she did to Sanders.

  7. Hillary is going to pay dearly at the polls for the anti-Catholic and anti-Evangelical comments made in some of those emails. Not only did staffers mock Christians, they even suggested using left wing subversive groups to infiltrate the Catholic Church from within. Trump needs to solidify his support from these groups and this is going to do it. Expect a letter signed from major religious denominations demanding an apology/resignations within a few days. This will have more lasting damage than any of the other leaks and I expect Trump to hammer this home at the next debate.


    October 12, 2016 at 5:39 pm

    • Why would the Left need to infiltrate the Catholic Church? They did that successfully 50 years ago.


      October 12, 2016 at 5:56 pm

      • “Why would the Left need to infiltrate the Catholic Church? They did that successfully 50 years ago.”

        Correct, but they want more: women priests, zero criticism of homosexuality and promotion of abortion rights. And regarding the mainline Protestant churches, the left owns them hook, line and sinker.

    • “Hillary is going to pay dearly at the polls for the anti-Catholic and anti-Evangelical comments made in some of those emails.”

      The Democrats have already lost all of the Evangelicals and Catholics that they are going to lose. Any who are still with them now, are not going to be shaken by….well anything.

  8. They definitely aren’t a game changer, that’s for sure, and there was no reason to expect them to be. Everybody already knew Hillary was corrupt.

    Trump is now slightly behind in the LAT tracking poll. Now I believe this is a temporary blip but this is the first time it has happened in a month. Trump needs to hold his own in the upcoming debate and then continue to campaign strongly for the last 3 weeks.

  11. Brand new Rasmussen poll shows race as tied even with all the recent coordinated attacks on Trump. That’s why the media is panicking and putting out phony 30 year old crap allegations against Trump. They know they could lose the whole enchilada.
