    Not a patriot, just another Hoover type heading up the FBI. apparently he does not like Hillary and wants to do a number on her.

    The long-haired Trump backer in the first video has also run a several-years-long campaign to free Charles Manson, who he believes was framed. One of his many videos on the subject: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctt7PiAfqOA

    Robin Lakoff, Linguistics Professor at UC Berkeley, says:

    “It’s not about emails; it’s about public communication by a woman’

    I am mad. I am mad because I am scared. And if you are a woman, you should be, too. Emailgate is a bitch hunt, but the target is not Hillary Clinton. It’s us.

    The only reason the whole email flap has legs is because the candidate is female. Can you imagine this happening to a man? Clinton is guilty of SWF (Speaking While Female), and emailgate is just a reminder to us all that she has no business doing what she’s doing and must be punished, for the sake of all decent women everywhere. There is so much of that going around.

    If the candidate were male, there would be no scolding and no “scandal.” Those very ideas would be absurd. Men have a nearly absolute right to freedom of speech. In theory, so do women, but that, as the creationists like to say, is only a theory.

    Clinton’s use of a personal server has not been found to be a crime. Then how is it that so many have found the charge so easy to make, and make stick? How has her use of the server made plausible all the claims that she is “deceptive” and “untrustworthy”?

    It’s not about emails; it’s about public communication by a woman in general. Of course, in the year 2016, no one (probably not even The Donald) could make this argument explicitly. After all, he and his fellow Republicans are not waging a war on women. How do we know that? They have said so. And they’re men, so they must be telling the truth.

    But here’s Hillary Rodham Clinton, the very public stand-in for all bossy, uppity and ambitious women. Here are her emails. And since it’s a woman, doing what decent women should never do—engaging in high-level public communication—well, there must be something wrong with that, even if we can’t quite find that something. We will invoke the terminology of criminal law to account for our feelings. She’s getting away with treason! Put her in jail! We can’t quite put our fingers on it, but the words sure do make a lot of people feel better, so they must be right.”

        Susie, if I had a son, I would put him out of his misery before I would let him attend Berkeley. My oldest daughter is working on her Ph.D. in Education, I worry about her mental state 24/7. Please pray for her.

          Sorry for commenting again, I didn’t expect the AVA would post my previous comments. My daughter Rachel is a very accomplished 40 year old woman. After serving our country for 5 years, 4 in Northern Japan, she was offered positions in Washington DC. She turned them down to become a stay at home mother. After my granddaughters were well into school age she returned to College for her master’s in education. She now lives in Georgia and is very much a conservative working on her Ph.D. and working with special needs children. She has a husband who provides well for her and my granddaughters and she is what I call a true feminist.

          Her only mistake was marrying a Marine

      “The Clintons have amassed an astonishing $231 million in personal wealth since Bill Clinton left the White House in 2001. That’s over $16 million net per year over a 15-year period. They “earned” this money primarily by giving speeches to wealthy corporations, at more than $250,000 per speech…, these fees were not paid because of the brilliant insights and words of wisdom offered by Hillary and Bill. Rather, they were a way of buying influence with two of the most powerful people in the Democratic Party. Thanks to Wikileaks, which published the emails of Clinton campaign chief John Podesta, we now know both that the secret speeches Hillary Clinton was giving to Goldman Sachs and other big banking firms as well as to other powerful corporate entities were simply fawning peans to those firms and their executives, and promises to do right by them if she were to become president. We know too that Bill’s fixer and agent was actually hustling up major donations to the Clinton Family Foundation along with simultaneous personal bribes to Bill in the form of absurdly high-priced speaking engagements.”

      http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/11/03/the-problem-with-hillary/

      Especially interesting and scandalous are the exchanges between John Podesta and Doug Rand, a consultant from Teneo. These e-mails show clearly Rand’s role as a high priced pimp for the Clintons, hooking them up with high roller clients like Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, or Dow and guaranteeing access in return for highly remunerated speeches or generous donations to the criminal Clinton Foundation. The Young Turks, Counterpunch, and Nick Confessore of The NY Times have all done good work reporting on this largely ignored aspect of the Clinton e-mail scandal.

      When truth is stranger than fiction…

      Monica Lewinsky – Hillary

      This one may come as a surprise, but Lewinsky will vote for Clinton despite her rocky history with Hillary’s husband, Bill. She sees Trump as a bully and says that as an anti-bullying advocate, she can’t support him.

    The U. s has it’s full share of misogynists – keep them bare foot and pregnant. Regardless of rather it is Hillary or some other female the same crap would be thrown at her. As far as U. C.

    Neither la estimada Señora de Castro nor the esteemed Mr. Updegraff respond to the charges against Ms. Clinton and her concubine of using their careers in politics to enrich themselves by peddling access to power. Instead, they resort to ad hominem attacks calling Hillary’s critics misogynous–even though several of the Hillary critics are Stein supporters.

    You don’t have to be a misogynist to hate Hillary. I hate Bill, so it’s equal opportunity hatred, independent of gender.

            Nevertheless, I’ve come to like Susie and wish I could at least inspire her to examine her faith and claims by reading about the abominable actions of the Clintons in places like Haiti and Honduras.

    Agents in the new york field office are likely in serious legal trouble.

    There was an initial inquiry made by them of the clinton foundation based on the contents of the clinton cash book and breitbartditcom articles.

    DOJ anticorruption officials briefed by ny field staff found the briefing to be their weirdest ever, and told them to stand down.

    If you had a financial statement showing net worth of everyone who is elected to Congress and then you looked at their financial statement after say 10 -12 years you almost always would find a substantial increase in their net worth. Sanders is an exception. As for Presidents their big increase in net worth comes after they leave office. Louis, get real – no politician takes a vow of poverty.

      $231 million since Bill Clinton left the White House in 2001.

      And what have they given back? NAFTA, GATT, welfare reform, massive exodus of jobs, ruined economies and devastated countries; and dead bodies everywhere.

      It’s no wonder that Hillary gets along so well with Henry Kissinger.

    Both the presumptive candidates now being imposed upon the U.S. Public and therefore the world are jolly Poster Children for corruption, the festering accumulation of wads of wealth in out-of-the-way places…contaminating government at immense cost now and later, said governments delivering ‘service’ that’s nowhere within miles of legitimate. Both wings of the runt-buzzard 2party system are co-perpetrators of fraud, looting, and war crimes (if not directly, then by ‘delegating’ unlawful powers). HRC and the DNC STOLE Bernie’s nomination FROM US and they’ve grinned and paraded like winners, of all things, and folks seem to be lulled into going along with such clearly, manifestly treasonous actions. The main media’s display of ‘observing’ this goat-roping is still calling it all an ‘election.’ Witless, on purpose. Hillary Clinton’s claim to be a freely selected, and lawful candidate for the Democratic Nomination for President is bare-faced, unrepentant thievery, and is belligerence against democratic process, an act of war against the Lawful Authority (Us) of this former democratic republic. I’m not saying this to ‘attack’ Hillary, as some will doubtless claim, I’m just stating her own record. We’re expected to acquiesce, pick one of these weasels and pretend to ‘believe’ they are telling something like the truth…in the exploding face of the all facts to the contrary. I’m wondering what’s Balinese for ‘WTF?!’ I’m also wondering what’s North American for ‘We do not have to put up with this bullshit, ever.’

    Comey doesn’t have to telegraph anything about Hillary Clinton and the Clinton foundation. He could just bring charges if there were any. He stood by and let an anti-Clinton faction in the FBI leak inflammatory innuendo, where he should have had them fired for turning “investigatory matter” into political hay for her political opponent, perhaps the least prepared presidential candidate in recent decades. The “investigation” in the FBI derives from a Peter Schweitzer book about the Clinton Foundation. This author Schweitzer, a radical Right hit man, is intimately involved with John Bannon’s media company Breitbart Group: lo and behold, Bannon is the campaign manager of the Trump candidacy. In other words, a circular misinformation loop between the Trump “source” and their reader-sympathizers in the FBI quoting its campaign manager’s former operative. Does anyone recall Cheney feeding Judith Miller misinformation about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, then quoting it as fact? Welcome to black ops in the hands of one of the two presidential organizations, Trump for President, feeding a sympathetic FBI faction. Machiavels didn’t die with the plays of Shakespeare. Such a great bunch of ‘patriots’. And you all snapped at the bait floating on the surface. Good thinking.

        Horse is already out of the barn. And the mutual Weiner family laptop, originally turned over by Huma to the FBI, is not the laptop used examining the Weiner case. That is its successor, which the FBI should have caught long ago knowing their marriage, the newer gadget probably containing a backlog of emails she wrote/received when the original was in use. The only questionable email so far (according to the NY Times) was unclassified at the time (e.g., Clinton to her daughter forwarded by Huma), but on a subject, climate change, needlessly changed later by FBI to classified, lowest level “confidential”. Big deal. A further example of demonizing Mrs. Clinton at any cost and by any pretext. Admittedly her Scorpio secretiveness and suspicion do not help but so far do not constitute criminal behavior. Contrast to Trump who has cheated all his life with a vengeance, aggressed on women of any age starting from nubiles, and compulsively lies, and you have a fair perspective of the bias against her as a woman who did not submit as required. Sadly, her future will be as fair game to kill as her past has been.
