"So what was once dismissed out of hand—that the DNC was actively working against the Sanders campaign—is now obviously true, but not a big deal. This is a textbook PR spin pattern seen time and time again, what might be called the Snowden Cycle: X is a flaky conspiracy theory → X is revealed to be true → X is totally obvious and not newsworthy.""Did Russian Intelligence Hack the DNC Servers?":
". . . there is also a significant question of motive. For Putin to be the bad guy here, we have to believe that Putin wants Trump in power, bad enough to risk near-war with the U.S. if caught in the hack, and bad enough to really p.o. Clinton who will be nominated this week anyway, and hoping of course that evidence of dirty tricks by the DNC released in July will be enough to defeat her in November. That’s a real s-t-r-e-t-c-h, Sparky."
"The DNC Breach and the Hijacking of Common Sense". We know for certain that Russia did it, or somebody did it wanting us to be deceived into thinking Russia did it, or perhaps whoever did it just randomly left possible Russian traces with no ulterior motive, and there is literally no possible way to determine which is true.
"Well, I mean, that’s interesting. We have seen that with a lot of other publications. I guess there’s a question: What does that mean for the U.S. Democratic Party? It is important for there to be examples of accountability. The resignation was an example of that. Now, of course, Hillary Clinton has tried to immediately produce a counter-example by putting out a statement, within hours, saying that Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a great friend, and she’s incorporating her into her campaign, she’s going to be pushing for her re-election to the Congress."Was Trump Right? Leaked DNC Email Shines Unexpected Light On Cruz's "Militant" Father". There needs to be a full investigation of Rafael Cruz as a new JFK assassination suspect.
So that’s a very interesting signaling by Hillary Clinton that if you act in a corrupt way that benefits Hillary Clinton, you will be taken care of. Why does she need to put that out? Certainly, it’s not a signal that helps with the public at all. It’s not a signal that helps with unity at the DNC, at the convention. It’s a signal to Hillary Clinton partisans to keep on going on, you’ll be taken care of. But it’s a very destructive signal for a future presidency, because it’s—effectively, it’s expanding the Overton window of corruption. It doesn’t really matter what you do, how you behave; as long as that is going to benefit Hillary Clinton, you’ll be protected."
Identity politics and the DNC: "‘I love you too. No homo. Phew.’ #DNCLeak #DemsInPhilly". "No homo"
"Trumputin! and the Leak(s)" Assange has promised a second, even more damning, dump.
