Queen of Deception?

NOTE:  The following is the verbatim of an email message sent by a follower to the Jefferson County Beer Party that has apparently been produced and published by Andrew P. Napolitano.  No effort has been made to confirm the factuality of this content, and readers are advised of such.

Why Hillary Clinton continues to be the queen of deception

On the eve of the Democratic National Convention, Wiki Leaks — the courageous international organization dedicated to governmental transparency — exposed hundreds of internal emails circulated among senior staff of the Democratic National Committee during the past 18 months.

At a time when Democratic Party officials were publicly professing neutrality during the party’s presidential primaries, the DNC’s internal emails showed a pattern of distinct bias toward the candidacy of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a marked prejudice toward the candidacy of Sen. Bernie Sanders. Some of the emails were raw in their tone, and some could fairly be characterized as failing to respect Sanders’ Jewish heritage.

The revelation caused a public uproar during the weekend preceding the opening of the Democratic convention in Philadelphia last week, and it caused the DNC to ask its own chairwoman, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, to resign. When she declined to do so, President Barack Obama personally intervened and implored her to leave. She submitted to the president’s wishes, gave up her public role as chair of the convention and eventually resigned as chair of the DNC late last week.

In order to take everyone’s eyes off this intrusive and uncomfortable bouncing ball, the leadership of the DNC, in conjunction with officials of the Clinton campaign, blamed the release of the DNC emails on hackers employed by Russian intelligence agents. Many in the media picked up this juicy story and repeated it all last week.

Clinton promptly named Wasserman Schultz as a campaign consultant and complained that the Russians are trying to influence the presidential election. She did not complain about the unfairness manifested in the emails, complete with their religious prejudice; she only complained about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s helping Donald Trump.

But the Russians had nothing to do with it.

2016 Election Headquarters

The latest headlines on the 2016 elections from the biggest name in politics. See

Last week, William Binney, a 30-year career official at the National Security Agency turned whistleblower, revealed the unthinkable. Binney, who devised the software that the NSA has used to capture the contents of emails and cell phone conversations of all in America but resigned from the NSA because of the unlawful and unconstitutional manner in which the software was used, told a Philadelphia radio audience that the DNC hacking was most likely done by NSA agents.

Why would the NSA hack into DNC computers, and why would the NSA leak what its agents saw?

Here is where the deep state meets the political world. The deep state consists of intelligence, military, law enforcement and administrative agency personnel who aggressively protect their own interests, which transcend elections. Stated differently, many of these folks remain in opaque positions of power, and the governmental departments and agencies for which they work continue to expand, no matter which party wins the White House or controls Congress.

The deep state stays in power by a variety of means, some of which are lawful and not the least of which was visited upon the DNC last week. Binney knows the inside workings of NSA computers because he designed them. He knows how easy it would have been for any of the NSA’s 60,000 agents, many of whom have great antipathy toward Clinton, to employ their skills to frustrate her drive toward the presidency.

The intelligence community’s antipathy toward Clinton has two general sources. One is her misuse of emails containing state secrets. Among the top-secret emails that the FBI discovered on Clinton’s non-secure private servers were some that revealed the names of U.S. intelligence agents operating undercover in the Middle East. Because Clinton emailed secrets to others who the FBI found were hacked by hostile foreign intelligence services and because she used a non-secure mobile email device while inside the territories of hostile governments, her “extremely careless” use of her emails resulted in the termination of the undercover work of those whose cover she caused to be revealed. Many in the intelligence community also suspect that in some cases, U.S. undercover agents lost their lives because Clinton failed to keep their identities secret.

The other source of intelligence community antipathy to Clinton stems from her secret war waged against the late Libyan strongman, Col. Moammar Gadhafi. When she waged that war — using intelligence, not military, personnel — with the approval of the president and a dozen members of Congress, she exercised her authority as secretary of state to grant exemptions to a U.N. arms embargo of Libya. She wanted Libyan militias to have heavy-duty, military-grade arms with which to topple the Libyan government.

But the CIA and others warned her that she was arming terrorist groups, which was potentially lethal for some American intelligence personnel and which is a felony under federal law. One of those groups may have used Clinton-authorized, embargo-free weapons to assassinate Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, at Benghazi. Clinton disregarded the CIA’s advice and didn’t worry about anyone’s finding out about it because she thought her emails would remain secret.

Binney’s conclusion that the NSA and not the Russians hacked the DNC is further supported by official White House silence. Last year, when Chinese intelligence agents hacked U.S. government computers and accessed personnel records of millions of federal government employees, the White House lodged long and loud protests with Beijing. This time, there have been no such protests to the Kremlin.

What does all this tell us?

It tells us that Hillary Clinton continues to be the queen of deception. It tells us that some of those in whose hands we repose our freedom for safekeeping do not wish to see her in the White House because of her demonstrated lawlessness and indifference to their work. And it recalls to our attention the danger and power of the deep state and its willingness to break the laws it has sworn to uphold.

  1. One of my cousins use to subscribe to some computer magazine. He once told me of an article he read in that magazine about some computer guy who hacked into the Defense Department’s computers, and left his résumé in a sensitive area, in hopes of getting a job with the Defense Department. He of course got arrested, but later was asked to see if he could hack into the KGB’s computers. The guy thought it should be no problem, and it wasn’t, until he actually accessed the KGB’s system — there was nothing. He was thoroughly perplexed, thinking that Russia had developed some super firewall or something, until he thought to try something a little unconventional — at least for that day & age. He tried using old original programming language that was created in the 1950s (whatever it’s called — I am NOT a computer guy!). Bingo! He was in like Flynn, and there was nothing to stop him. He said after that, he stopped being scared of Russia. Therefore, if this little story is true, and Russia is still decades behind, then I am more inclined to agree with Binney than The Wicked Witch’s flying monkeys. Hopefully the NSA has captured a few of those unsecured e-mails before that irresponsible old bitty strew them across the world like propaganda leaflets from the back of a C-130. As far as “the deep state” goes; nothing new. J. Edger Hoover kept dossiers on lots of politicians, so he could extort them into keeping his funding rolling in; but I’m sure Hoover would have at least raised an eyebrow at the CIA’s Air America & Iran-Contra operations. As far as an American political party or candidate using hook & crook to get what they want… Well… the Nixon administration, Credit Mobilier, Teapot Dome, ballot box 13, the Keating 5, the list goes on and on. In my opinion these people are the “clever devils”, and “wild beast” that C.S. Lewis and Albert Camus spoke of, so we shouldn’t be surprised at the depth & breadth of their corruption.

      I never could have imagined I would live long enough to see the day when the civil liberties of a few circumvent the freedoms and liberties of all others. Nor would you have ever had an easy time trying to convince me that our Constitution and Bill of Rights would become little more than worthless pieces of paper with contents that so easily could be ignored for the sole benefit of a select few, and at the expense of the rest. But so it is here in modern day America. So to this end I can say that within the next decade we will see Americans fighting Americans on American soil, and the greatest democratic society ever known on the face of the Earth will have died. There are simply too many factors pointing to this right now, and I seriously doubt the average American will see any of this coming when it becomes too damned late to do anything about it as fighting breaks out on our nation’s streets.

      • I agree. I’ve been wondering if all the gun violence we’ve been seeing lately is part of a sinister plan to propagandize the American Public against privet firearms ownership; thus making it easier to garner support for more stringent and universal gun control, which is the prelude to establishing, and maintaining a totalitarian dictatorship. The father of the man who shot up the homosexual disco in Florida being invited to a Clinton rally certainly does not quail my suspicions. When I learned that Hillary would run for the Democratic nomination for President, I had a sudden, dare I say, frightening premonition that she will be elected President Of The United States. Now, if that isn’t horrifying enough, my internal crystal ball says that Obama will be chosen as one of Hillary’s cabinet members! There are more terrible things lurking in our political past that we have survived, but I see a far darker future than ever before. As always, only Divine Providence can rescue our nation from the dreadful destiny it’s chosen for itself. However, if you throw a drowning man a life preserver, and he throws it back, the only choice he has is to drown.

        I think Hillary is just upset because the NRA didn’t contribute to her campaign, and made sizable contributions to the Trump effort. But the one thing that has upset me most in all this is the number of people in government stuck on the silly notion that gun control works. Gun control only affects otherwise law-abiding citizens. Now is it me, or has anyone else noticed there isn’t so much as a spit in the wind to try to control the number of illegal firearms in this country? Why not? Wouldn’t it be more prudent to take the guns out of the hands of those who demonstrate they follow a criminal path as opposed to those wanting only to protect themselves, their loved ones and their property?

        It might be worth asking our so-called “representatives” in government why they won’t go after illegal weaponry? Who’s bribing them into not taking such an action?
