DNC Data Dump Gives Putin A 'Two-For-One' Win

Hillary’s campaign has made a point that Putin wants her opponent elected. Putin knows what he would have with a weakened and tainted Clinton. He does not have the same knowledge of Trump. He may see something of himself in Trump as someone who does not shirk from a fight and hates to lose. Could Putin be thinking of changing horses?

Trump, Deferring To Putin, Deleted GOP Platform's Call To Supply Ukraine With Lethal Defensive Weapons

Trump has boasted that a good negotiator does not say what he is not going to do in advance. Removing defensive lethal weapons to Ukraine from the platform does just that. It is a sign of a weak negotiator. The eyes of the nation should be on arms for Ukraine as the Republican convention unfolds. If Trump sends the wrong signal, he risks his credentials as a strong leader.

Hillary Not in the Clear Yet: The Scrubbed "Private" E-mails

Remarkably, Putin need not even have Clinton’s emails. Putin’s army of “information technologists” (propagandists) can release professional fabrications through clandestine sources throughout the world. Clinton cannot disprove these narratives. Putin supposedly has the evidence in black and white. She has wiped exculpatory evidence clean. Both Putin and Clinton know that repeated unrebutted narratives become the truth. Even his lies will seem more credible than her denials.

Comey Says Hillary's Inner Circle hacked by Foreign Hostiles. Why Not Hillary?

There appears to be significant overlooked news in Comey’s statement. To date, we have known only that the Romanian hacker, Guccifer, breached Clinton advisor, Sidney Blumenthal’s account. Comey, however, states that hostile actors (plural) gained access to the accounts (plural) of Clinton’s regular contacts. So the FBI has evidence of more than one successful hack of accounts of Clinton associates. In this light, Comey’s statement that a hack of Clinton’s account was “possible” is a gross and peculiar understatement.

The Benghazi Commercial That Can Cost Hillary the Presidency

Surely the Trump campaign or the RNC is teeing up the video contrasting the tearful testimony of the families of the fallen heroes with Hillary’s parsed denials. There is little doubt which side viewers will believe. Such a spot will eclipse the John Kerry swift boat campaign with its emotional impact. The American public will believe the fathers and mothers not, to use Donald Trumps’ words “Crooked Hillary.”

Calm Down, Brexit Will Not Be A Catastrophe

The consensus appears to be that Putin’s Russia will benefit from Brexit’s uncertainty and confusion, but the EU reaction to Putin’s foreign adventures has not been effective and coordinated so far. How Putin fares depends much more on inner German and French politics than on the EU. The Brexit battle resembles the unfolding U.S. election campaign. Hillary Clinton represents the Brussels-type internationalist establishment, and Donald Trump represents the nationalist/populist interests of those who feel over-regulated, dominated, and lectured down to by the political class.
