Hillary Clinton

A simple two-letter typo might have cost Hillary Clinton the entire election


Those darn Russian hackers. We need to increase our security. Or increase our employee’s awareness of security issues such as phishing. One link click opened up the email account of a Hillary election employee.

The email was a fake warning from hackers that appeared to be from Google, telling Podesta to change his password through a link they provided. The “phishing” scam is a popular one that depends on the gullibility of the victim.

Or a typo:

“This is a legitimate email,” Charles Delavan, a Clinton campaign aide, replied to another of Mr. Podesta’s aides, who had noticed the alert. “John needs to change his password immediately.”

Having read the message, Podesta must have thought it was OK to click the link and reset his password — exactly the opposite of what Delavan intended.

Mr. Delavan, in an interview, said that his bad advice was a result of a typo: He knew this was a phishing attack, as the campaign was getting dozens of them. He said he had meant to type that it was an “illegitimate” email, an error that he said has plagued him ever since. And that’s how more than 60,000 emails of Hillary’s top aides fell into the hands of allegedly Russian state-sponsored hackers.

to explain something to someone, typically a man to woman, in a manner regarded as condescending or patronizing

Likely the first, and very likely the last, time that the word “mansplaining” will be used here, but it’s the first thing that came to mind when I saw this video. Here you go: Van Jones telling a woman that she, as a woman, should have voted for Hillary Clinton because Hillary Clinton is a woman.


Yet Another Reason that Hillary Lost


Showing yet again how inept he is, Tim Kaine said what now?

Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine said Monday he was saddened by the “senseless act of gun violence” at Ohio State University, even though the attacker used a butcher knife and a car.

Mr. Kaine, who ran on the 2016 Democratic ticket with presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, was accused of pushing a gun-control agenda after his Twitter post blaming firearms for the siege.

Washington Post

After years of every terrorist act being used to remind us that we need more gun control, Tim Kaine followed the script earlier this week. However, it wasn’t a gun that the attacker used, but a knife and a car. Let’s require people register their knives and highly restrict access to cars and see if that helps.
