"The DNC Emails Were Leaked" Obama Takes Parting Shot At Brennan, Clapper, Clinton

Three U.S. Intelligence Agencies (CIA, NSA and FBI) claim that IT-Systems of the Democratic National Committee were "hacked" in an operation related to the Russian government. They assert that emails copied during the "hack" were transferred by Russian government related hackers to Wikileaks which then published them.

President Obama disagrees. He says those emails were "leaked".

Wikileaks had insisted that the emails it published came from an insider source not from any government. The DNC emails proved that the supposedly neutral Democratic Party committee had manipulated the primary presidential elections in favor of the later candidate Hillary Clinton. This made it impossible for the alternative candidate Bernie Sanders to win the nomination. Hillory Clinton, who had extremely high unfavorable ratings, lost the final elections.

The President of the United States disagrees with those Intelligence Services. He says that the DNC emails were "leaked", i.e. copied by an insider, and then transferred to Wikileaks. (At the time around the leaking the DNC IT-administrator Seth Rich was found murdered for no apparent reason in the streets of Washington DC. The murder case was never solved.)

Here is President Obama in his final press conference yesterday (vid @8:31):

First of all, I haven't commented on WikiLeaks, generally. The conclusions of the intelligence community with respect to the Russian hacking were not conclusive as to whether Wikileaks was witting or not in being the conduit through which we heard about the DNC emails that were leaked.

The DNC emails "that were leaked" - not "hacked" or "stolen" but "leaked".

One wonders if this is a parting shot is primarily aimed at the involved Intelligence Agencies led by James Clapper and John Brennan. Or is dissing Hillary Clinton and her narrative the main purpose?

The presidential judgement could change the political pressure towards a new cold war with Russia if the mainstream media would pick it up and discuss it. But the media are widely invested in the "hacking" claims (and even create their own ones from hot air). They are also furthering the  anti-Russian narrative. We therefore can not expect that they will report this presidential parting shot at all.

Trump is said to have written the speech himself and it shows. Bashing previous administration but no historical references. No real media 'sound bites'. All rather pedestrian.

Re-iterating his campaign themes. Not really any "uniting" - just "inviting" everyone to join his 'America First' movement.

"Pedestrian" is probably a good thing, for someone positioning himself as the 'people's champion'.

"a link with some IS vids, and that someone in France opens this website, you can get under house arrest"

Lessons from across the west show us that known terrorists will never be arrested for this. The Christmas market Berlin truck driver had been specifically discussed in several security meetings and nothing was done (except his extradition papers very suspiciously arrived the day after the attack). So these new terrorism laws are clearly a canard.

The truth is that a war is being waged by the EU elites and their zionist masters against the christian peoples of Europe, who are starting to wake up and are threatening to throw out these puppets of their zionist puppet masters.

But this recent development in England is exactly the same vane, but much more ominous:

Theresa May adopts new definition of anti-Semitism.

Now there are all kinds of new ways that English jews can impoverish English Christians if they decide to feel offended, a few ways are:
- denying the Holocaust
- drawing parallels between Israeli policy and the Nazis
- accusing Jews of being more loyal to Israel than their home country.

We know from the Talmud that they consider themselves chosen by god. We have seen how Israel has expanded from it initial claims of "peaceful coexistence with all of Palestine" in 1917 to the complete victimization and persecution of the original inhabitants and rightful owners of the land.
So as these Zionists strip the Palestinians of all their land, honor and pride, while demanding tribute, weapons, military technology from the west, they simultaneously use their power in the west to make it illegal to notice the various genocides they are conducting all around their border. Jewish Power Is The Power To Silence Criticism Of Jewish Power.

Meanwhile we have these jackass Zio-puppets parading around this blog pretending that all this misery and theft of oil, energy assets, and water supplies around Israel has absolutely nothing to do with this group of people who came back after 2000 years and two world wars to drove out the inhabitants of a country under the ruse that it was their divine right because they are chosen by god.

Expect the Zionist muzzle to become law. Trump walked past Adelson given unprecedented prominence on the dais and there was meaningful eye contact and acknowledgment between the two.

We are doomed. Power has been passed on to the most pro-Zionist administration ever.

Trump and his wife looked so bored with the inauguration, doesn't it make them look sympathetic?

Bingo: i posted a long comment with plenty of links about the French state of emergency and guess what.... it will wait until it is stamped ! it had the keyword (dji**) in it + links.

What is crazy about all these Orwellian laws is that at the same time, cable TV with preachers calling for hate crimes all day are accessible, we receive money from the Gulf, Israel and other theocratic fans. On top of that, thousands of forums exist where ppl exchange in exotic languages which once transcribed into latin script are totally garbled and can be understood only by real practitioners. But it can't last.

Kenny @124:

People here have criticized Israel as well as Saudi Arabia, Turkey, USA, and other countries.

It seems that you and Circe will not be satisfied unless/until all MoA commenters join your anti-Jewish/anti-Trump crusade.

<> <> <> <> <> <> <>

For the n-th time, MoA is primarily an international relations blog and many here are waiting to see if Trump makes good on improving relations with Russia. Such a development would be ground-breaking and would essentially demote Israel and GCC states in importance.

Is filling the comments with hate meant to derail MoA support for improved US-Russia relations?

That's not how I interpret this; they are the 1%, the super-rich and their condescension is merely to the imposition on their time and accustomed comfort. There is nothing sympathetic about privilege ascending to power.

Draconian laws are sprouting like weeds; expect more with this President.

This a highly unusual, strangely ... odd ... post.

... I went to the US embassy and made an appointment to renounce our Yankee slavery. We knew that Obama was serious about the talmudic marxist/communist propaganda he was spewing.

Take this blog, I have made many assertions about Israel and the Zionists spreading war and misery across the middle east, but instead of trying to counter my arguments with documentable truths, I am called a liar and a Troll and an anti-semite.

Well, rationally, that may possibly have something to do with your stated 'hates', 'assertions'(your chosen Word!), Not Arguments, perhaps ? Case in point, your post 132 & your post 204 replied to in deliberative detail & referred to below, without response ...

Re, 'countering my arguments with documentable truths', please see: January 17, 2017, How The U.S. Enabled ISIS To Take Deir Ezzor, detailed deliberative posts 234 & 237 in response to a similarly, odd post 204. Your entire post 204, every assertion & both links, are demonstrably proven false, fantastical unreality, & well, simply very odd ?

Finally, just so you don't think I am singling out Jews, I feel the same way about Yankees.

Somewhat bizarrely, openly declare you hate Jews/Zionists, hate Obama, hate the Dems, hate imagined 'talmudic marxist/communists', hate the imagined 'Slavery' of US citizenship, hate Yankees (ie US citizens(or, is it just Northeners ?)), hate MOA and hate the Bar's patrons, openly unequivocally declared!? Confusing, it is ...

That is, frankly, a distressingly & concernably so, awful hell of a lot of ... hate.

Concerned for your health ... do you take pills for stomach reflux/acid bile and suppression of stress induced stomach ulcers, by any chance ?

Similar to another, your posts seem rarely presented to engender discussion, informed or considered debate, to engage with or expand upon/clarify, to seek knowledge or understanding, merely, as for the latest post, very odd shouted assertions ...

You clearly state yourself, your posts contents are only mere, 'assertions'. Then, yet, in the very next breath, you demand your assertions(often false as they are) be argued/debated as if they were fact ? Confusing this is ...

Given your claim to speak four languages(also write ?), one can only assume, you are sure of & comprehend assuredly the meaning of the words you write ? Your english is literate ... so ... ?

Sincere question. Given your open & unequivocal declarations of openly declared 'Hate' for all the above:

Surely, you do not walk into Bars in real life and shout out your asserted hate's at the top of your lungs, to the patrons and Barman ?

One surmises you would not ... do so ... ?

Given such a remarkable post and declarations, re the locale you mention, Northern Europe, perhaps these links may somehow possibly be of relevance ?:

Neo-Nazi & Fascist Marches
