Good Time for Good News

This Week:  Over the past few months we’ve been able to experience what President Trump has done for our courts, especially the 9th Circuit.  There have actually been decisions made in the past few weeks that support things like, oh you know, the rule of law.

With just that one amazing change, Trump may finally be able to make a decision without being hauled into court, as the Left tries any trick to try stop. And this subtle but important change means we can look at some of the new rules knowing they may actually be enacted.

Good News for the Endangered Species Act

One of those are incredibly important changes he’s made to the Endangered Species Act. And, naturally, what’s being reported about simple changes that could lead to actual recovery of these species is being mis-reported that it will destroy a “vitally needed” government program.

This act that was to save animals from extinction because the money resource for far-left organizations who abused it through their sue-and-settle actions.  Rather than trying to protect animals from harm they wanted to raise funds by suing while having prelimary agreements from Deep State bureaucrats to happily ensure the government would lose its case so that they could pay out high and outrageous attorney fees back to them.  A legal loop hold that until recently was handing over millions to pro-environmental-anti-human groups.

With that atrocious practice eliminated, we turn our focus to the changes Trump’s administration has actually made to the ESA and its new benefits to species and to landowners.  Dr. Zybach walks us through what he’s seen in how the landowner is now empowered to help with the ESA and why that’s a good thing.

Also, don’t miss his personal encounter with the Endangered Species Act, Oregon’s “other Spotted Owl”, the Marbled Murrelet. It’s a good example of abuse by the scientific community and what happens when you sacrifice science on the altar of politics. (You can download his article, Oregon Coast Range Old-Growth: Part III, Marbled Murrelet Habitat.)

Good News from Hollywood. Wait, what…?

Kanye West September 2019 Album leaks, Jesus is King
Kanye West September 2019 Album leaks, Jesus is King

Then we turn to Hollywood, the last place we expected to see good news this week and talk with James Hirsen about one star of pop culture who is making a dramatic change —to Christian music.

Kanye West, who recently became a born-again Christian, has a new album coming out in September.  Mr. Hirsen walks us through Kanye and his wife, Kim Kardashian, have a tremendous impact on pop culture and why the Far Left may push back against them. Or just flat out turn on them. Because, you know, kids listening to an enlightened and positive message is clearly so dangerous.

We also have a momentary dip into the darker side of Bernie Sanders who wants population control because of (drum roll) global warming. He wants to sacrifice life to save us from death, sigh.

But we only stay on the dark side for a little bit and quickly turn back to some more good news—the newest Christian movie, Overcomer, and its powerful message.

This week, it’s all good fun, and uplifting, except for Bernie’s message.  But then again, when is anything socialist ever good news?

This Week:  For many, the FISA court didn’t become widely known until after the 911 attacks as the public was sold the idea that the court was the way to keep track of terrorists who had infiltrated into the US or were planning to do so from other countries.  What you may not know is that the FISA court, along with all its secretive powers, was created back in 1978 under President Carter as a way to insure political opponents could not be spied upon (remember Nixon).

How is that working for you?

As with any well-meaning protection, bureaucratic protections can be used against you and at this time in history we seem to be experiencing an out-of-control government that abused the power of the FISA court under false pretenses in order to get Trump. Ironically, so far, these are the only crimes that are both known and provable. Not the Russian collusion or obstruction.

And that’s the key in our legal system. Not accusations, but whether the government can prove its case against you. It’s not whether you might have done something or are alleged to have done something. It’s whether the government can demonstrate that you did, in fact, do something. And that’s why Mueller could only resort to hinting and implying.

Mueller’s Parting Shot

In the wake of the Mueller Muddle and his parting shot, Democrats in Congress are still bleating on about impeachment.  The Senate is letting them hang themselves while they quietly work to get judicial nominees through their hearings. 

So the Democrat Media (formerly known as the “Mainstream Media”) ignores the biggest story of our time — a massive abuse of power by the Obama administration against political opponents. But while they ignore it, it turns out the story and investigation is moving forward.

Origins of the Crime: The FISA Court

Enter investigative reporter John Solomon who has produced some of the deepest digs into the story exposing many of the who and how.  But for him the biggest question to date is still the when this all started. Why?

Because crimes involve facts. And dates and times are facts.  Such as, when did Mueller know he was investigating a non-crime?  When did the FBI know the information used to get the FISA warrants was false? When did the government attorneys get involved helping to investigate?  And when did Loretta Lynch sign the FISA warrants? And, believe us, there are many more questions regarding the when.

Answering those questions may at last bring about the criminal warrants to bring down those involved and start to heal the country.

A FOIA on the FISA Court

John Solomon has taken action and is working with Todd Young, Executive Director of Southeastern Legal Foundation, to get these answers directly from the FISA court. So is it possible government lawyers have already been quietly sanctioned or punished for their involvement? Todd gives us his take on the Mueller parting shot, the details to exactly what they’ve requested from the court, and insights into actions that the mainstream Democrat media refuse to cover. If you want to know where are the FISA judges and why are they silent, well, we ask that too.  

This is a fascinating and insightful interview that you don’t want to miss.

James Hirsen on Mueller

Then we move into James Hirsen who dons his former-lawyer hat to rip into Mueller’s partisan hack job—and why so many are dumbfounded by Mueller’s upside down  and backward statements.  Only to issue a joint statement afterwards between Mueller and Barr’s office that he [Mueller] agrees there was no conflict between he and Barr.

The statement reads:

“The Attorney General [(Barr)] has previously stated that the Special Counsel [(Mueller)] repeatedly affirmed that he was not saying that, but for the OLC opinion, he would have found the President obstructed justice. The Special Counsel’s report and his statement today made clear that the office concluded it would not reach a determination -one way or the other- about whether the President committed a crime. There is no conflict between these statements,”

Could it get any more confusing? Join us this weekend and get a little clarity.

On Some Issues, the Younger Generation NOT in Step with the Left

While Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex thinks she has the youth on her side and that all of them can’t wait to be dyed-in-the-wool socialists, there are certain issues where today’s youth are most definitely not in lockstep with the Left. This is especially true for abortion.

Today’s Youth on Abortion: The Sonogram Generation

In fact, the “sonogram generation” is showing signs of disdain and disgust at the Far Left’s (and Democrat leadership) agenda of the coldest and most brutal abortion issue to date: so-called 4th term abortions. In other words, infanticide of children who survived an abortion. This generation grew up with Mom bringing home sonograms of baby brother or sister.  And even though their first vision of their little sibling was in black and white and somewhat fuzzy, they identified that early, early pregnancy as a live baby.  Something to be excited about, not kill.

So this week’s show we have some good news.

First up, we talk with the President of Students for Life, Kristan Hawkins, who talked to us as she waited outside the White House for President Trump’s signing ceremony of an Executive Order to protect free speech on campuses. Kristan was in attendance because one of her chapter presidents was to present what her experience has been on campus as a young conservative.  We discussed with Kristan about the new pro-life movie Unplanned, in theaters starting March 29th.  It’s a story about a friend of Kristan’s who was a Planned Parenthood counselor until the day she actually witnessed the horror of an abortion—a baby who had survived the abortion and was fighting for its life.

There is also some terrific news on the legal front. We discuss the new decisions in the appellate courts that now allow Ohio and Texas to defund Planned Parenthood and what these decisions mean for the pro-life movement. And how these precedents will open the door to other states defunding Planned Parenthood.

James Hirsen: Hollywood’s take on Unplanned & the College Entrance Scandal

Next up is bestselling author, James Hirsen that gives us Hollywood’s take on Unplanned and the R rating that was given to a film without language, violence, or sexuality. A film kids now can’t go to see without their parents’ permission—and yet in many states they can get an abortion without their consent.

Hirsen also gives us the inside-Hollywood view of the college scam and how children of actors cheated their way into college. We get his thoughts (as a former attorney) on the Mueller investigation.

Hirsen: What on Earth is Going on over at Fox News?

James Hirsen has also been a contributor for Fox News. With the suspension of Judge Jeanine for having an opinion on her opinion show and the hiring of Donna Brazile, what is going on at Fox?  Don’t miss his take on what’s happening with Fox News’s swing left and why.

Unplanned – The Movie

A reminder that the movie, Unplanned opens this Friday, March 23. Since Hollywood decided to make it Rated R, so kids under 17 can’t get in, it’s a perfect opportunity to go take a whole bunch of kids with you. It will be a chance to talk about — and show them the sancitity of human life. And its irreplaceability.

I hope you will make time to go on opening weekend. Bec that’s the weekend the production studio makes most of their money.

This generation doesn’t lean toward socialism because of a few political commercials. They lean that way because of the content of shows they watch. One day, wealthy conservatives will wake up to that.

Republican victories in California. So much for that Blue Wave
So much for that “Blue Wave”

Be sure to tune in this week as we look ahead at the November 2018 races by looking at what happened in the 2018 California primaries. Is there hope for California?

And should those of us in deep blue states like Oregon take some hope?

Is there a “Blue Wave” coming?

Will the hate-filled rhetoric from the Left fire up their base?

Will the Democrats defense of MS-13 and embrace of illegal immigration win the Latino vote? This and a lot more on this week’s I Spy Radio Show.

At the end of all this, who’s going to need that other southern border? Oregon? Or California? If California can turn things around and drive the Democrats from office, we may not need that wall on Oregon’s Southern border after all.

But Calif might want one — to keep out Oregonians if we can’t get our act together.

What do all slaves, since the beginning of human history have in common?

Well, you’ll have to tune in to find out the answer to that one.

But what do all Liberals have in common? Hypocrisy of course. Liberal hypocrisy is rooted in their subjective reasoning. It’s not “murder” if it’s the unborn. It’s not “breaking the law” if it’s illegal immigrants coming here to take advantage of America’s generosity.

[wpedon id=”2365″ align=”center”]

James Hirsen on Liberal Hypocrisy

James Hirsen is a NT Times bestselling author (Tales from the Left Coast), international business attorney and commentator on all things Hollywood. He’s also a frequent guest on I Spy Radio.

Liberal hypocrisy is always apparent (except to them) but no more so than in the recent Facebook scandal and the anti-gun “March for our lives” protest. Why?

There is no why. It’s just the bottomless barrel of liberal hypocrisy of course.

Liberals and Hollywood celebrities are fleeing Facebook. And shrieking at Mark Zuckerburg as they slam the door behind them.Why? Because Facebook sold data on 87 million users to Cambridge Analytica who bought it for the  Trump campaign. Gasp!

Liberal hypocrisy. Ban everything. Ban America!You’ve probably heard elsewhere that Liberals were perfectly okay with Facebook giving Obama access to data—and the Liberals even praised Obama for being oh-so-clever. But not just 87 million users. Facebook gave away data on 190 million users.

Did you know Obama and Facebook may have actually broken a law by doing this? (Don’t hold your breath about the DOJ going after either of them.)

And then there’s guns. The Hollywood liberals—who make their millions selling movies about guns, using guns, shooting guns, and making it all look cool—took to the streets to march for gun confiscation — while surrounded by armed guards.

Trump Strategy on China

Up next, it’s bestselling author, Scott McEwen (co-author of American Sniper) on some international issues. We’ll talk over some strategic war games being played out on the world stage — not so much militarily but economically as well.

Remember: economics IS warfare. Scott has some surprising insights into what Trump is doing with China and why.

Scott lives on the border in San Diego. What’s he think of the horde of illegal immigrants marching their way through Mexico?

Scott’s fans will also want to hear the updates on his upcoming movie. And some updates on two new books that will be released this year  which have already been optioned for movies.

Air Dates: Nov 4  & 5, 2017 | James Hirsen & Dr. Tim Ball

This Week: Two of the big stories this week have been about corruption and the immorality of the Left: Hollywood’s and Hillary’s.  Both stories look into the mindset of cultural hypocrites of the worst kind. They claim to be champions of freedom and democracy but out of the eye of the public, they do whatever they can to shut up their victims with threats and intimidation.

Many of us outside of Hollywood suspected what was going on but now there’s evidence. And it’s deeper than we feared.

Hollywood especially lives a lifestyle they know is so repugnant to many that it can’t be exposed in the light of day.  So in darkness they tread on their victims’ rights, collude with any enemy who will live with them in that darkness, and then act shocked if and when they’re caught.  We’ve seen this week more and more victims come forward who were intimidated into silence by the powerful in Hollywood.

Hillary is the political expression of the rot in Hollywood and is the perfect example of the immorality of the Left. With a new scandal breaking every week, we’re witnessing Hillary’s behind-the-scenes manipulations. It’s an infection that’s spread through the ideology of the Left: use power to destroy your enemies. It threatens all of us when their power takes over the institutions we trust to protect us.

To really look at Hollywood we call on James Hirsen, who has been a conservative observing what goes on in Hollywood.  Mr. Hirsen not only discusses the despicable culture of the Harvey Weinstein’s but really gets into a deeper look at how this dark culture has grown and spread in our society.  It’s very clear why conservatives, and especially Christian conservatives, are not welcomed there, because those living in darkness don’t want any light shining on their secret lives.  We see this living out in the types of movies being made, and who the Hollywood crowd hangs around with — and supports politically.  That’s why we’ll also talk with James about Donna Brazile revealing of Hillary’s corruption and takeover of the DNC. Tune in to hear how damaging this culture has been and could continue to be on our way of life.

Then we talk with Dr. Tim Ball, who is an example of the ideological Left uses the law to try to destroy their enemies. He shares with us how he is fighting off not one but three lawsuits he’s been battling. He’s been sued by government-funded climatologists for such things as defamation—merely because he disagrees with their conclusions.  You’ll hear how a culture, like the green movement, has tried to use the courts not to protect, but to destroy. Imagine if Hillary had continued the efforts of the Obama administration to use the legal system to silence anyone who disagrees with them.

The Left hides behind the powerful. The Goliaths. And they hide in his shadow. But the good news is that with the light shining on them, the army of darkness will turn and run. Join us this week for a view of the battlefield.

Original Air Dates: Aug. 12 & 13, 2017 | Bobby Downes & James Hirsen

With it being August, and with everyone focused on recreation, this week we take a break from politics to take a look at movies and film making. Not that there isn’t a lot of fiction in politics, of course. In particular we look at a growing segment of the film industry: the Christian film market.

Christian Film Industry

This is an enormous market. There are tens of millions of people in this market segment who’d like to watch films without all the explicit sex, swearing, and lack of morals that are standard in so many of Hollywood’s films today.

Beyond the Mask - a Christian film industry productionWhile Hollywood is aware of this market, they have difficulty reaching it. All too often, it’s because they simply don’t understand it because they don’t have the same viewpoints or background. It’s like the NY Times, trying to write news stories for Conservatives. A lot of times, it just doesn’t work. The author doesn’t have the same mindset and just can’t resist getting in a dig at the very people they claim they’re trying to reach.

Beyond the Mask -The leading mercenary for the British East India Company, Will Reynolds has just been double-crossed and now is on the run in the American Colonies. Read more…

To learn about the Christian film market we turn to the experts that do get it. Our first guest, Bobby Downes, is the CEO and founder of ChristianCienema.com, a marketplace for Christian films made by Christians for Christians. Think of it as the iTunes for Christian movies. We discuss the difficulties facing Christians in Hollywood, and how his company has been a driving force behind raising the quality standards  for Christian films. It used to be Christian films were seen as second-rate or poor quality but a quick look at their site will dispel that notion. Instead, these Christian films understand Middle America, and use film to communicate the positive messages of Christianity through entertaining, high-quality feature films.

James Hirsen

Then we talk with James Hirsen about the continuing nonsense in Hollywood and why they don’t put out top Christian movies like they did in the Golden Age of Hollywood. Is there really a hostility there or is it hype?  We discuss the notion of being blackballed for exercising free speech, California’s secessionist movement (yes, they really are pushing it) and their continuing confusion over why Trump won. Here’s a hint: now they’re actively recruiting “movie stars” to run for office. Is there a chance they could win?

Perhaps they’re getting mixed up on the difference between being popular and populist politics.

Leftist Lunacy – Comey, Kathy Griffin and Paris Withdrawal Syndrome

Leftist Lunacy – Comey, Kathy Griffin and Paris Withdrawal Syndrome

Show Summary: When it comes to Leftist lunacy, it’s a never-ending target-rich environment. This week, we focus on the James Comey hearing, Kathy Griffin, and the ultimate lunacy: Climate Change. (We capitalize that because to those on the political left, it’s a religion.) Tune in to hear how withdrawing from the Paris Accord may be the next Leftist derangement syndrome. Except it may not be what you think.

Climate change is the ultimate “heads I win, tails you lose” marketing scheme. If the earth warms, they can say, “See?!? We need to DO something!” But if the earth cools they can say “See?!? Our efforts are working!”

But the whole thing reminds me of a Gilligan’s Island episode – The professor had set up a measuring stick in the lagoon and after carefully recording the depths he came to the conclusion the island was sinking. Soon, he had the entire island in uproar as they packed everything up and moved to higher ground — that is, until they found out that Gilligan had been using the stick for his lobster traps and kept moving the stick further and further from shore to deeper water.

Likewise, the so-called “science” of global warming is ripe with fraud, including fudging the temperature readings when the warming stopped.

This week, we talk with Dr. Tim Ball about what it means for the U.S. to withdraw from the Paris Accord. While President Trump said it was a “bad deal” for America, it goes far, far deeper. Now, by withdrawing, it is starting an a cascading effect that has impacts for the U.S., the Leftist movement, the U.N., and much more.

We also talk about coal and what we ought to be doing instead of what we are doing—which is so often the case with anything Washington D.C. gets its grubby fingers on.

The James Comey Show

Kathy Griffin led the news this week for her lunacy but the lunacy of the Left wasn’t done there. Enter the Comey Show.

The day we talked with James Hirsen, the Comey testimony had just concluded so we just had to talk to James about what had happened. Comey’s testimony put the Trump-Russian collusion story to rest, or should have but we’re sure the Left will continue its effort to do all it can to undermine President Trump.

We do talk about Kathy Griffin and the nonsense coming out of Hollywood, which is sounding more shrill and desperate. Will studios like Marvel finally get the message?

Show Summary: Everyone knows the Left is nothing if not hypocritical. And examples of liberal hypocrisy abound. Like Madonna the tolerant liberal spewing hate at a march supporting democracy while rejecting the results of an election. Or Hillary mishandling over 1,000 highly classified emails but getting off scott free—while prosecuting a Navy sailor for having six photos of “sensitive” areas on his cell phone. But is all that hypocrisy about to bite them back?

More liberal hypocrisy - Al Gore the eco hypocriteLiberal hypocrisy not only thrives in D.C. and Hollywood but is often rewarded. The problem is, it’s not just “free speech” but their hate speech and hatred of anything they disagree with has ripple effects through society but the justice system as well.

We just finished up a proud tradition in America, the presidential inaugural celebration. We watched as President Trump was sworn into office and the solemnity of the moment when America invested him with the power to be the leader of the free world.

Liberal hypocrisy or just plain stupidity? But with all the excitement of the day, compare that to people on the Left were rioting and destroying property on the streets of DC—along with Congressional members who could have set an example of unity for the good of the country but instead chose to sit out the inaugural ceremony.

And then of course we saw the women’s march and the terrible tone they and many elites in Hollywood set, hypocritically spewing vile hate from their platform—about President Trump’s supposed hate speech. And this right on the heels of Inauguration Day’s pomp and circumstance.

More liberal hypocrisy - Russia was good when Obama was president now its badBut it’s not just hate speech. We’ve seen how Hillary Clinton broke the public trust by skirting federal laws to up a personal server that was proven to be hacked by foreign governments and used that private server to mishandle more than 1,000 classified emails. Was she punished? No. She was allowed to run for president despite flaunting the laws.

Meanwhile, a Navy sailor who took 6 pictures of sensitive areas of a submarine was sentenced to a year in federal court.  Both people did something wrong but the judicial system was clearly not blind and instead tipped the scales for the one who had money and power.
liberal hypocrisy - pro-illegal immigrant; but hating on Melania Trump, an actual legal immigrationThis week, we take on the double standards by interviewing Kathleen Saucier, mother of that Navy sailor, Kristian Saucier, along with his attorney Jeffrey Addicott.  You’ll hear the specific details of the double standards imposed on Saucier’s sentencing and what a President Trump might do to bring back some balance to the scales of justice—both for Kristian and for Hillary.  Since Mr. Addicott is  a world-renowned expert in terrorism law we discuss some of the new executive orders President Trump has put forward this past week.  Don’t miss our conversation about terrorist training camps on U.S. soil and their complicated relationship with the Constitution.

Fact: Obama issued 1,385 commutations and 212 pardons

Then we talk to media analyst James Hirsen (author of Tales from the Left Coast) about some of the outrageous examples of far-left attacks on President Trump and his family.  Listen to find out whether their hypocrisy is so out of control that it will finally cost them. And, if you want to do something about it, stay through to the end on how you can still see the movies without rewarding the studios that push these the hate-baiters.

Why Hillary’s Private Server was such a Glaring Security Risk

Why Hillary’s Private Server was such a Glaring Security Risk

This past weekend on I Spy Radio (Show # 5-32), we had the pleasure of interviewing James Hirsen of Headline Hollywood and Kevin Freeman, one of the world’s leading experts on economic warfare and financial terrorism. (See his site, secretweapon.org and his blog, Global Economic Warfare.) Plenty to choose from on what to write about for this Monday Morning wrap-up, no doubt the new insights on Hillary’s private email server (1) practically leaped out at both me and my ever-astute producer. So what did we learn?

Hillary’s Deleted Emails

There’s been a lot of talk—a lot of talk—about Hillary’s private email server, especially her 30,000+ deleted emails. And, sadly, all that talk has led to pretty much more talk and more discussions but almost no actions.  And by that, I mean no jail time. (Kevin’s thoughts on that very issue are ’round about the 43:50 mark).

But all that talk and suspicion focuses almost entirely on the content of Hillary’s emails—especially the deleted ones. Or on what she has or has not turned over. Yet. Or on topics like Benghazi. Or whether she was giving political favors to big Clinton Foundation donors. And while all of that is important, it turns out that the contents of Hillary’s emails may not be the most damning part of this story.

Hillary’s Private Server

At this point, pretty much everyone except Hillary condemns her use of a private email server for her official State Department business—with the possible exception of Bill. (Maybe it’s just me, but do you ever get the sense that if there was even a slim chance that throwing Hillary under the bus would make him popular, Bill would it in a heartbeat? And if there was a gorgeous young intern on the bus, he’d back it up and hit her again—”Watch me get some air, honey.” But I digress.)

Anyway. Here too, the discussion on Hillary’s private server has been missing an important point. To date, the discussion has largely focused on the fact it allowed her to circumvent the law, lack of transparency, and to some extent the lack of security. Perhaps the reason the important point is skipped over is that it gets a little technical. So let me expand on an analogy I used on the show to help illustrate this.

Before we go any further, use the player here to enjoy some Medieval mood music. You’ll see why in a moment.

Behind the Castle Walls

Bird's eye view of Windsor Castle
Windsor Castle, showing the towers and inner keep

Imagine you’re the Queen of the State Department and you want to get a message to King Obama. Okay, I admit; so far this still sounds a lot like real-life Washington but hang in here.

There you are, holed up are in the Chancellor’s Tower at Windsor and you need to get a message to the King over in Keep (that’s the inner most part of the castle). No problem. Rather than walking all that way and up and down all those, literally, stone-cold stairs, you scratch out your message, hand it to a courier who, forthwith, runs it to the King over in the Keep. The advantage here is the courier remains safely behind the castle walls at all times. There’s that moat and the towers, the armed guards and so even if someone did get behind the walls, it’s a safe bet they’d find their rears at the business end of a pike real soon.

This is what Hillary email should have looked like had she used the government server. Everything stays, as it were, behind the castle walls. But that’s not what she did.

Hillary’s Private Server: The Drunken Messenger

Back again to our analogy. Let’s say you’re Queen Hillary, safely behind the castle walls up in the Chancellor’s Tower and you need to dispatch a message to Sir William of Chappaqua in another castle a few states over. You once again scratch out your message and hand it to your messenger. Except this is where it gets very different.

The way email works is this: when you send your email, it goes out into the world but before it gets to its final destination, it’s more like the old Pony Express than something out of Star Trek. Your email doesn’t get sent through some subspace channel directly from your computer to the recipient’s computer. Instead, just like the Pony Express, the mail is handed from one server to another all along the route. Your email is handed to your local server (your ISP—Internet Server Provider) and from there to a number of other servers as it wends its way to its final destination, your recipient’s ISP and, from there, to your recipient’s computer.

To return to the analogy, Queen Hillary’s email left the safety of the castle walls and went out into the countryside—and stopped at every tavern along the way for a pint or two before staggering out the door on to the next one.  This is how Hillary sent official, confidential, and classified State Department emails.

But Wait, it Gets Worse

That tavern picture above isn’t too far from the truth. The “secret message” is just sitting, there on the table and potentially anyone can sneak a peek. Or, as the servant toddles off to the next tavern, he could get waylaid and robbed or worse. Worse you say? Worse, say I.

What’s worse is that while the messenger is either sleeping it off under the bar or staggering off to the next village, someone could not only read the message but potentially slip a bit of malicious code in message pouch. Not so much as change the message (“P.S. Bill, I want a divorce”) but code that could make it easier to get into the castles. This would be like a note to the guards that, at 12:01 a.m. on Michaelmas, open the gate.

This is malware. It gets into a computer, behind the castle walls, and makes it easier for the barbarian hackers to gain entry. As revealed on the show, as of the last year of the Bush presidency, the Chinese government had hired 100,000 full-time hackers to do nothing but try to hack into the U.S. government, major companies, financial systems, and internet infrastructure. So what do you figure are the chances one or more of those 100,000 hackers managed to hack into a “tavern” and lie in wait for a government messenger to stagger in?

But Wait, it Gets Worse Yet

At long last, the dutiful messenger finally staggers up to Castle Chappaqua. He salutes the guard and presents his credentials at the same time and wobbles a bit as the guard yanks them from his hand. The two blush a little as the sounds of feminine giggles waft down from one of the towers — oh, sorry. Got lost there in the moment.

What’s worse than an unguarded messenger carrying classified information going from one castle to another, stopping at every tavern along the way? What’s worse is precisely what Hillary has done. Brace yourself.

Remember that messenger carrying the message? That he kept leaving on the bar? On the bar of every tavern and dive between Windsor and Chappaqua? The message in the courier bag into which anyone who knew how could slip other messages? If all that weren’t already horrible enough, given the sensitivity of the messages, think about this:  every time Hillary emailed—er, messaged—King Obama or any other government official—even people in State Department offices just down the hall—the messenger was dispatched all went to Chappaqua. And back.

That’s right. Instead of a messenger going from Tower A to Tower B safely behind the castle walls, Hillary sent that drunken messenger all the way to Chappaqua and back, stopping again at every tavern along the way. Just to get an email  to King Obama.

Yes, the contents of those emails matter. Destroying emails is criminal enough. But what Hillary has exposed the entire government to —and all of us— is far, far worse. And she wants to be president? She ought to be in jail.

 

Footnotes

The discussion with Kevin about Hillary’s private email server and her deleted emails takes place in segment six but to really get the full brunt of it, you need to listen to the whole show. It puts what she’s done in context.
