Okay, it is time to talk about the email hacks by WikiLeaks. Many in the media are salivating over the emails that WikiLeaks hacked from the DNC and John Podesta. They are looking for all the “dirt” they can find.
I have gone through what I can from these “leaks” and I don’t see anything that could be called “dirt” in any of them. Yes there are people talking about what could be weaknesses and how to handle them. There are some strategy issues being discussed. But to say there is anything of any major concern would be stretching things from New York to Los Angeles.
The FBI has said they believe the evidence says that the hacks were done by Russia, and not some 400 lb kid on his be in Moscow, but the Russian government. They say that Russia then handed them over to WikiLeaks.
I might even overlook the Russia meme here, but we need to discuss WikiLeaks more than you probably know about it. In essence, WikiLeaks is a criminal organization. They pat themselves on the back for “hacking” into people’s emails to show what people are writing or thinking.
You may not know this or have forgotten, but hacking into someone else’s emails in a crime in this country and most countries around the world. That means every time someone from WikiLeaks hacks into an email account they are breaking the law.
Now, I don’t know about you, but when a known criminal organization releases documents they claim are real, I have serious doubts that what I am reading is actually what was written without it being “edited” by the criminals to show what they want it to show.
You must also take into consideration that the head of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange is hiding out in the Nicaragua Embassy in London. Why is he hiding out there? Because Sweden has a warrant for his arrest for the crime of raping two women. Rather than facing the charges to defend himself, he chose to hide out at the Embassy. England was willing to extradite him back to Sweden to face charges which is why he ran to the Embassy.
So we have a criminal organization headed up by an alleged rapist now trying to influence our election for President. I guess when Hillary Clinton said he should be returned to Sweden to face the accusations, he took umbrage to that.
Is he working with Russia on all of this? I don’t know. Maybe he is and maybe he isn’t. The only fact is that his organization breaks the law in many countries around the world.
The sad thing is that journalists here in the U.S. say that if you are “famous” or “powerful” you don’t have a right to privacy. They are more than willing to publish what WikiLeaks gives them without even reading the information first to see if it is even relevant. In other words they are very willing to violate people’s right to privacy in the name of “news”. In essence they are abetting a law-breaker.
I don’t care who WikiLeaks tries to “hack” emails from. I don’t care if it is Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. I personally pay very little attention to them because I cannot trust a criminal to give us the full truth.
If you are willing to cheer on WikiLeaks, remember there is nothing keeping them from hacking your emails or server and stealing your financial information. Then wiping out your bank accounts. To me, WikiLeaks is no better than those stealing people’s IDs.
It is time for the world to team up and find these criminals and put them behind bars. They are a real threat and they need to be stopped, not published. Julian Assange needs to be sent back to Sweden to face his accusers.
They are a threat to your right to privacy as much as to a politicians right to privacy. Remember, if you email a politician, you could find your email in the newspapers as well. It has already happened. What makes you think you are immune.
WikiLeaks and Julian Assange are criminals. Start treating them that way.
