Convention Tid Bits

          From behind their four mile, eight foot high fence surrounding their convention, Democrats and their media acolytes at CNN are shopping an interesting diversion. They are suggesting the Russians hacked the emails in concert with or to at least benefit the Trump campaign.
          That would be like treason almost, and the Cuomo lad on CNN was giving currency to the notion this AM. 
          Wasserman Schultz is not too much of a pariah. She is honorary chair now of Mrs. Clinton's Fifty State Strategy, and is being allowed to speak at the convention. Can you say Booooooo?
           Pocahontas has been added to this evening's speakers list. That will help Dems dominate the Tuesday news cycle.
          One mistake that hurt Dems were several critical references in emails to Morning Joe. That meant more coverage just because egos were bruised.
           Looks like our local paper didn't send reporters to the DNC like they did the RNC. That's curious, Although I am sure there is good reason, although Philadelphia and Cleveland are equal distances to Watertown.
            Two more attacks in Germany keep security in the news and another nightclub shooting in Florida will keep gun control in the dialogue this week.
           And in a rationale Albany would admire, Dems are defending the $160K in gifts their VP pick got while Governor of Virginia.   It wasn't illegal at the time, they say....But was it right ?  Doesn't matter as it wasn't illegal at the time.

About as much credibility as the Planned Parenthood videos. Only sub-idiots continue to argue different...

Natch, "no bigots" in the Grand Old Party, eh? I see, I see.

This hacking story needs close scrutiny for a thousand reasons and angles a few here - important to say the least:

Proving anything this early is difficult, but researchers and cyber experts have concluded that the DNC was breached by two Russian intelligence agencies, which happen to be the same attackers behind previous Russian cyber operations at the White House, the State Department, and in the JCS just last year.

This theft would be among the most important state-sponsored hacks yet of an American organization rivaled by the attacks on OPM by state-sponsored Chinese hackers, or the attack on Sony Pictures blamed on North Korea.

In those cases, too, embarrassing emails were released, but they had no political significance. This WikiLeaks release, however, has more of a tinge of Russian-style information war, in which the intent of the revelations is to alter political events – but exactly how, is still bit of a mystery, apart from embarrassing Democrats and further alienating Bernie Sanders supporters.

Evidence thus far suggests that the attack was the work of at least two separate agencies, each apparently working without the knowledge that the other that was inside the DNC computers.

It is also unclear how WikiLeaks obtained the emails but with the presumption is that the intelligence agencies turned it over, either directly or through an intermediary for this release – the timing of which between the end of the GOP convention and start of the DEM one seems to be too well-planned to be coincidental.

Metadata from the released emails suggests that the documents passed through Russian computers with at least one hacker claiming responsibility for giving the emails to WikiLeaks. Whether the thefts were ordered by Putin, or merely carried out by apparatchiks (Russian word for operatives) who thought they might please Putin is a big question, too.

However, the Russians might have good reason to support Trump since he has indicated in an interview with The New York Times last week that he might not back NATO nations if they came under attack from Russia — unless he was first convinced that the counties had made sufficient contributions to the Atlantic alliance.

Does it matter where it came from. What we know from the hacks are that the DNC lies (we will be neutral) and they are bigots ( can we get it out that Bernie is an atheist it will help with the wing nut church goers) they just don't like people knowing those things about them because they falsely paint the GOP in those colors.
