(June 4, 2016 10:18 a.m.) — Bernie Sanders looked as if he would limp into the California primary and watch his upset bid over Hillary Clinton fizzle, but a surge in the polls and rumblings that superdelegates committed to Clinton may be showing hesitation has given his campaign new energy.

In recent weeks, Clinton appeared to hold a wide lead over Sanders in the Golden State. Polls showed her lead to be somewhere in the range of 15 to 18 points over Bernie Sanders, pointing to a win that would seal the nomination, thanks to Clinton’s big lead in the party-picked superdelegates, many of whom committed to her before a single vote was cast this year.

The past week saw an abrupt change, however. The latest set of polls from California showed the two candidates in a dead heat, and a new USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll this week found that Sanders had actually taken a slim lead.

(May 27, 2016 8:45 a.m.) — ANAHEIM, Calif. — Senator Bernie Sanders may be trailing Hillary Clinton by hundreds of delegates, and Mrs. Clinton may be treating the Democratic nomination as hers, but Julie Crowell, a stay-at-home mother and a die-hard Sanders supporter, is holding out for an 11th-hour miracle: divine deliverance at the hands of the F.B.I.

Like many of Mr. Sanders’s supporters, Ms. Crowell, 37, said she hoped that Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state would eventually yield an indictment, and she described it as the kind of transgression that would disqualify another politician seeking high office.

(May 25, 2016 10:01 a.m.) — The State Department inspector general concluded that Hillary Clinton did not comply with the agency’s policies on records, according to a report released to lawmakers on Wednesday that also revealed Clinton expressing reluctance about an official email account and hacking attempts on her private server.

The agency on Wednesday released the long-awaited findings on the email controversy to Capitol Hill, a copy of which was obtained by POLITICO, providing just the latest turn in the headache-inducing saga that has dogged Clinton’s campaign.

Double Standard: Clinton Emails Released on Eve of Super Tuesday

Double Standard: Clinton Emails Released on Eve of Super Tuesday

The timing couldn’t be any more perfect. At the end of the day, and right before the primary elections Super Tuesday. What a scam. Soldiers serving in the military would have been subjected to an Article 15 for mishandling any government information, classified, secrete, confidential or top secret.

State Dept. releases final haul of Clinton emails
With the last batch, released on the eve of Super Tuesday, the number of classified emails rises past 2,100.

By Josh Gerstein and Rachael Bade,

(Feb. 29, 2016 16:22 PM EST) — Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is escaping the State Department’s final release of her emails — on the eve of Super Tuesday — without any more of the messages from her private account being designated “Top Secret.”

However, the total number of messages deemed classified by the State Department surged past 2,100 in the last document dump, adding to Clinton’s headaches about her judgment in using a private server for all her email traffic while secretary.

The Art of the Lie: Hillary Clinton’s Artful Avoidance and Obfuscation (Draft 1)

This is a rough draft Ver. 1

(Feb. 23, 2016) — During tonight’s CNN Town Hall meeting between democratic nominee hopefuls Sen. Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, the moderator asked Clinton about why she hasn’t released her $200k paid speech transcripts made with Goldman Sachs, and whether the private email server classified information mishandling investigation has impacted her campaign.

Clinton’s response might as well have been from Donald Trump’s book, “The Art of the Deal.” However, Clinton’s book would be named, “The Art of the Lie.”

If anyone who has been following the democratic candidates over the past year, one would be very familiar with the issues that arrise for each of the candidates along the way. The first time Clinton was asked about her paid speeches with Goldman Sachs, where she received over $600K for three speeches, was around when Lee Fang, a reporter with “The Intercept” began asking her about them, and was subsequently brushed off and laughed at.

Since, the request for the transcripts has been popping up without giving way. Clinton’s first response, which was during a broadcast debate with Sanders, she said she would, “look into it.” Now, and as artfully as she could, she is conditioning her release of those transcripts on actions of the other candidates. Namely, the republicans as well as Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Sanders, has since, released what little transcripts he had. But this wasn’t enought for Clinton. She moved the goal post and is now requiring all the republican candidates to also release transcripts of any speeches they every made as well. This scored Clinton points in creative dodging (i.e., lying), and as such, is playing a page out of the book, “The Art of the Lie.”

Both her responses were misleading.

1) Transcripts – Basically, she has refused from the start to release claiming she will look into it. Now she has spouted how she wants everybody to release their transcripts 1st before she will follow.

2) Email – She tried to summarize this as another “attack” based issue.

1) Transcripts – My view – If she wants to be the leader of this country, and the leader of the Military (where soldiers have been sent to jail, subject to UCMJ actions for mishandling classified information.) why is she differing leadership to the other candidates to lead the releasing of transcripts for their paid speeches.

Its like, Clinton’s position is, “I won’t tell the truth (by releasing the transcripts) unless you tell the truth first.” Lastly, on this issue. First, the other candidates are not only asking, but the American people are asking her to release the transcripts. She doesn’t only have to come clean to the other candidates, but she has conditioned her coming clean on behalf of the interest of the American people on weather the other candidates will release their transcripts.

Does this sound familiar? Yes. It’s that tit for tat approach to dealing with a problem. This is what grid locks congress where Republicans and Democrats play this game back and forth in D.C. and nothing gets done. Thus, the same old tactics, gimmicks, and tricks. Meanwhile, while the game is afoot, the American people, as with the transcripts are marginalized because of how she wants to “play the game.” Because it is only a game for her. If she looses, she goes back to a cushy lifestyle.

2) Classified Email Breech:

Well, I sent an op-ed into the New York Times on this basically narrowing it down to how soldiers would face much more serious consequences for simply having a thumb drive used around official military equipment and computer in the course of communications. Here, she basically installed her own system, to intercept communications she needed to send, receive and store in the course of her work as a United States Secretary of State.

This is very serious. The idea that she setup this private system guarantees that she would be in control of distribution of its contents upon request. Therefore, she, once again, and with the intention of, developed a “buffer” between her and being accountable to the American people. As she is now doing above, with the speech transcripts as well.

She is enabling her ability to come clean with transcripts or email contents behind an action depending on a third party.

With respect to the Transcripts – she is hinging her actions on the Republican’s to first make a move (Bernie has already done it); and with respect to the emails, she hinged her ability to act on the limitations of the system she setup to begin with (third party device). The private server enabled her to “loose” thousands of emails, and then slowly seep out the information, in hard printout form (can’t be searched” on her terms. What is most disingenuous is how she designed this in advance, a premeditated act with the anticipation of being able to obstruct when needed.

Doesn’t the NSA Already have Clinton’s Email Communications?

You know, with all of the Edward Snowden revelations, and Glenn Greenwald’s reporting on the government surveillance systems, the hijacking of emails and voice transmissions, and the like, wouldn’t you think that the NSA, or the DHS, Google, Microsoft, as such would all have copies of Clinton’s private email server communications?

If then, then why haven’t they provided the investigation with same?

Or, why hasn’t the FBI gotten an order, like they did with Apple, to forensically pry any and all databases open to recover the information form all sources?

EmailGate: Hillary Clinton Aide set to Testify

By Spencer S. Hsu and Rosalind S. Helderman February 23 at 7:36 PM Washington Post

(Feb. 23, 2016) — A federal judge ruled Tuesday that top aides to Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton should be questioned under oath about her use of a private email server as secretary of state, raising new political and legal complications for Clinton as she tries to maintain momentum for her campaign.

The ruling granted a request from the conservative group Judicial Watch, which sought testimony from State Department officials and members of Clinton’s inner circle to determine whether Clinton’s email arrangement thwarted federal open-records laws.
