This is funny.  I too ( I didn’t try to go back and clicked my link) as a huge fan of Bernie, joined in with his call for Hillary to release her transcripts of her talks with Goldman Sacs.

Surely this would show her I said, to be the devil of the corporations, the demoness of globalization, and the protector of the top one percent…

Well, they are out now and with deep interest, I went through all I could…

After reading them, I am shocked, shocked!  I really couldn’t have been more proud of her. Why didn’t she just release them and let all see?

Probably because of proprietary constraints is my guess. Goldman Sacs couldn’t want JP Morgan, as one example, knowing what they knew for example, so they may have put a non-disclosure tag in her contract or fee…. So in order to be released, they had to be hacked. Thanks to Putin’s Russians, we now have copies.

My first takeaway is that I would almost be able to cite plagiarism because it was as if many of her lines had been lifted from my blog…

As to all the damning hints from Assange, “we will release documents that will totally destroy the Clinton candidacy”,  I’m underwhelmed either by the stupidity of those doing the leaking, or their naivety…. I know from across my experience that until you have to work with other people who may or may not like you in order to get things done, you really aren’t grown up yet.  If you are fortunate to make a living where you can say:  do this, and it gets down, you really don’t understand how sometimes it is necessary to bring two diverse groups inward to a center position, to get them to work on the same page.

These documents sort of show that Clinton is a master at doing such.  The headlines you get over at Breitbart intending to make those ignorant readers think she’s horrible, when clicked to reveal the articles and leaks themselves, which show a person with a huge grasp of a large machine with moving parts and how they all work together…

Let’s jump to examples:

Headline:  Clinton says Dodd Frank was needed for political reasons!

I guess that might cause alarms to go off if you hate everything political… But if that were so, why then would you be still sticking with Trump after the tapes, unless it was “political”?

And we know, Dodd-Frank to the “red meat” means government and business collusion to make their lives poorer.  Don’t ask me where they get that from.  Koch’s probably.

But here in depth is the actual killer sentence:

“And with political people, again, I would say the same thing, you know, there was a lot of complaining about Dodd-Frank, but there was also a need to do something because for political reasons, if you were an elected member of Congress and people in your constituency were losing jobs and shutting businesses and everybody in the press is saying it’s all the fault of Wall Street, you can’t sit idly by and do nothing, but what you do is really important.”

She is talking about Republicans here, not herself. LOL.. She is explaining how Republicans had to listen to the rank in file in their districts and how they had to do something (Dodd-Frank) to show Main Street back home that they were doing something constructive for their regular Joes.  Which meant they (Republicans) had to go against their lobbyists (the elite) who were telling them: “you know we can give you lots of money if you just vote against Dodd-Frank”….

Headline: Wall Street Says They Really Do Appreciate Clinton

I guess that is intended to set alarms in Bernie’s people; Wall Street and the Republicans, especially the Tea Party, have all been cozy for some time…

But we all know that Wall Street is in New York and that Hillary was the Senator for New York for 8 year right? And that Senators are supposed to listen to ALL of their constituents, right?

Again, here in depth is the killer sentence…

“MR. O’NEILL: By the way, we really did appreciate when you were the senator from New York and your continued involvement in the issues (inaudible) to be courageous in some respects to associated with Wall Street and this environment. Thank you very much.

SECRETARY CLINTON: Well, I don’t feel particularly courageous. I mean, if we’re going to be an effective, efficient economy, we need to have all part of that engine running well, and that includes Wall Street and Main Street. And there’s a big disconnect and a lot of confusion right now. So I’m not interested in, you know, turning the clock back or pointing fingers, but I am interested in trying to figure out how we come together to chart a better way forward and one that will restore confidence in, you know, small and medium-size businesses and consumers and begin to chip away at the unemployment rate. So it’s something that I, you know, if you’re a realist, you know that people have different roles to play in politics, economics, and this is an important role, but I do think that there has to be an understanding of how what happens here on Wall Street has such broad consequences not just for the domestic but the global economy, so more thought has to be given to the process and transactions and regulations so that we don’t kill or maim what works, but we concentrate on the most effective way of moving forward with the brainpower and the financial power that exists here.” [GS2, 10/24/13]

He is thanking her for being open minded during the timing of a very anti-Wall Street environment.  He called it courageous and if you have any inkling over what political courage is, you would probably agree.  Her response comes across simply that, she wouldn’t call being “open minded” courageous, that is just how she is.”. In her continuation she does not prostrate herself before Wall Street as we probably all assumed, but mentions that Main Street and Wall Street both have to do well if our economy is to approve.  Neither will improve if the other is hurting..

Duh.

Headline:  Clinton Says Financial Industry Knows What To Do Best.

I guess that is intended to portray collusion between Clinton and Goldman Sacs?  Ironically that has been the Republican position since Bush took over in 2000.  Here, said Cheney, you regulate yourselves… We’ll eliminate all our agencies watching you”  But that is not what Hillary says.

Here in depth, is the killer sentence:

“There’s nothing magic about regulations, too much is bad, too little is bad. How do you get to the golden key, how do we figure out what works? And the people that know the industry better than anybody are the people who work in the industry.”

Just like the people who know the restaurant industry best, work in restaurants. People who know the hotel industry best, work in hotels. People who know bridge-building best, build bridges…

C’mon. Is this the BEST you can do? This is how you are “really going to shake up the election?”  Your innocence in running anything makes me want to question “your solution”?  Put people who work in restaurants in charge of regulating bridge-building, and bridge builders in charge of food safety?

Headline:  Clinton Tells Wall Street She Represented Them For 8 Years”

I guess this is the smoking gun which prove Hillary is nothing more than a shill for Wall Street.  When they pull her strings, she moves their way. If they don’t pull, she remains still.

Here is the killer sentence. 

“I represented all of you for eight years. I had great relations and worked so close together after 9/11 to rebuild downtown, and a lot of respect for the work you do and the people who do it, but I do — I think that when we talk about the regulators and the politicians, the economic consequences of bad decisions back in ’08, you know, were devastating, and they had repercussions throughout the world.” [GS2, 10/24/13]

Ummm. she was their Senator for 8 years. She represented them as do all senators represent all their constituents.  In her case they were on the same sides both during and rebuilding after a terror attack. But even despite that she does think that what took place during those Bush-Cheney years while she was their senator, were devastating and had repercussions throughout the world.

I must confess. I’m deeply disappointed in WikiLeaks. I have always respected that information is necessary for people to make good decisions.  When it is made unavailable for public consumption, then this option of leaking information is one that can balance the playing field. In this case, their information unanimously endorsed my belief that Hillary Clinton is who we need. I am disappointed however in the lead-up of hype, only to see there was nothing here but twisted headline material. For me, WikiLeaks came thorough this episode with a loss of credibility. What once was deemed an enterprise worthy of an occasional contribution or two, has regressed into looking like a slanderous political arm of an untrustworthy hypocrite.  I hope they return to illuminating evil, and stop attacking good.

My takeaway from this in-depth study is that Hillary Clinton is truly one of the most amazing people I have seen.  She may not have always been the most qualified person to be president and represent ALL citizens both conservative and progressive, but she is indeed now.

She is better than ANY Republican out there now.  She is better than any man out there who could right now, step up to run the country.  I’m overjoyed these hacks were released because after supporting Bernie through his entire run, if there were any lingering doubts cast then by him on her ability to lead, with these releases, they are now gone for good.

And you know what?  I’m tired of talking about her mistakes.  Seeing her in secret and up close, it is very obvious that this is an amazing human being and for that alone, I would encourage all other decent human beings to get behind her and spread that message…

I’ll say it here, but maybe with luck, Wikileaks will hack me and re-capture it to spread it across the world so its message is amplified louder than I could ever shout it myself.

If there is hope for a better American future, right now, it lies deep within the brain of one Hillary Clinton.
