Latest on the news is Trump says he’s about to reveal insider information about the hacking of the Democratic Party computers. Perhaps he already has with a statement from Kellyanne Conway about WikiLeaks. Ok, yes, we know WikiLeaks. But the White House says Wiki got it from Russki. I think the answer is obvious to anyone who’s familiar with how many “whistleblowers” come into possession of the proverbial whistle.
Here’s how it goes down, people: Jim Happy is employed at Sunshine Industries. He’s been working there for almost 20 years, so he knows the systems there from top to bottom. One day, the new CEO decides Jim simply isn’t “youthful” enough to appeal to the younger customers. So, he is quietly moved from Upper Staff to Warehouse and Jillian Sneed takes Jim’s job, despite her having come on board at Sunshine just six months prior. To say Jim is angry, disillusioned, and vengeful would be an understatement. Therefore, Jim goes to the IRS with all the evidence of corporate tax evasion that he knew of but kept quiet so long as it was in his interest to do so. But rather than possibly implicate himself, he sends it to the IRS anonymously through their snitch hotline. Within days, headlines across the nation are ablaze with the story and Sunshine’s stock tumbles on Wall Street and they can’t even give shares away. Sunshine demoted Jim Happy, but Jim Happy took down the company with him.
That is how it rolls, okay? That’s how stuff gets done in America. No, not “the Russians”. That’s just a smokescreen to hide the fact of what was known and who knew it. I suspect this: Someone deep in the Democratic Party, maybe Hillary’s campaign, got some serious hurt feelings over something. As many egos are in play over there, this is bound to happen. So this individual pulled his or her own “Pentagon Papers” late one night and “Quiet Couriered” then over to WikiLeaks. Now, of course, the Democrats would know who did it. I mean, come on, your computers are really that insecure and they know right where to find this stuff amidst the gazillions of emails about expense reports due and so on? I think they knew and I think Obama knows now. But they can’t admit it was an inside job! How would that look?!
These things are nearly always inside jobs. This has “disgruntled employee” written all over it. Every whistleblower deal does. Of course, the Democrats would want to bury this one deep because it would also imply that one of their own “did the right thing” and came forward. Which would, obviously, discredit the entire campaign and candidate, to say nothing of the party itself. WikiLeaks isn’t going to say one way or the other because of confidentiality and protecting their source if they even know. Every journalist worthy of the name protects his source. But they’re not going to sit by and watch Russia get blamed wrongly, either.
It also serves the purpose of trying to hamstring Trump as he comes into office. The Democrats have shown they’re willing to start the Second Cold War in order to do this. But the primary motive is self-preservation because if the American people found out this was an inside job, they’re going to see corruption in the Democratic Party pretty much confirmed by them. Not to mention the corruption of the cover-up and then blaming a nuclear-armed nation to do so. People are then going to wonder what else they’re not being told.
Now I can’t prove this was an inside job. But I say history shows that, in both the public and private sector, whistleblowing comes from the inside nearly ten times out of ten. This wasn’t “hacking”, this was whistleblowing. Because “hacking” would have involved disabling their computers and destroying valuable documents. Not revealing things that they DID SAY which would mortally damage their campaign if made public. Let’s compare apples to apples here, not apples to grapefruit. When the United States hacked into Iran’s computers, they inserted a “worm” which wreaked havoc on their systems and destroyed large parts of it. Ok, so why was this not the case with the Democrats’ computers? No, what happened is embarrassing FACTS were revealed. That’s not “hacking”, that’s whistleblowing.
As I said, whistleblowers generally always come from within an organization. That is how they know what embarrassing facts exist, where to find them, and which ones will damage the organization the most. Because they’ve sat in on the meetings where it was said, “Gosh, if this ever gets out, our goose is cooked!” But organizations themselves don’t always know who is capable of becoming a whistleblower. They don’t find out until it hits the headlines. Then they know they’ve got a “leak”. Remember, before the computer, that was what these things were called. A “leak”. And they always originated from inside the organization. Several presidents were paranoid about “leaks” from within their own cabinets. Remember? “So-and-so leaked our plan to invade Cambodia to the press…” But now with computers, “leaks” can be pinned on “computer hacking” by countries that are safe to vilify in the press.
We’re asking the wrong questions here. The question is not “How do we know the Russians didn’t do it?” The question is, “How do we know this wasn’t an inside job by a whistleblower?” What, you think that guy is going to want and go public after this mess? The dude is probably halfway to some country that does not extradite by now with all his cash converted into gold and a forged passport. The answers will not come from the Democrats. But the Democrats and Establishment Republicans control the investigation and that’s like putting coyotes in charge of investigating a missing chicken from a henhouse. “We need to interview the surviving chickens…” Yes, I bet they do.
And if it is an inside job, look at it for what it’s worth. They’re willing to risk everyone’s lives just to cover their own sixes. Is that enough hope and change for you in one lifetime?
