WikiLeaks and Me and The Election too ©
By Michael Casey
I’ve come away from watching RED for the 5th plus time to write a piece about the USA Election, just a few weeks away. Last night was the posh dinner and today even more WikiLeaks came out. The total irony about the Election is that it’s all about pants, Trump wanted to use Bill’s lack of pants as a weapon, then all the girls, 10 to date came out and spoke about Trump’s activities. Then all the leaks came out, which made things Pants for Hillary. Pants means rubbish here in England, was the game good? No it was pants.
A guy who is hiding in Russia who betrayed his own country gets to manipulate the voters in USA. It’s ironic that Hillary had all her email problems and now is being shafted by emails again. And Republicans are so eager to believe a traitor, assuming all the emails are true anyway.
My other point would be, we all say we hate Mrs Smith from down the road because she parks her car so badly and restricts the flow of traffic in your posh little drive. But we never say it to her face because she bakes the best cookies in the whole of Alabama, so we accept her bad parking for fear of losing her cookies, we all remember the bear in the Andy Williams show is it 50 years ago now. We will send emails and messages to each other saying she is a SOB the way she parks, so what would happen if WikiLeaks revealed that. There would be disharmony in your little community Mrs Smith would no longer share the cookies.
In the big wide world secrets are secrets for a reason, you don’t share them for fearing to upset one party of another. You have to organise things so as not to upset people, you have to show one face so as not to lose face as the Chinese say, my wife is from Shanghai by the way. We are all Rubic cubes, and we are a mix of this and that, we unscramble the cube to produce order. Now if internal emails which have been hacked come to the fore what does it do? It just scrambles the cube again, and yes people are two faced and argue and bicker, but I would say this is normal in any family.
Mom can I go out tonight, who are you going out with, ok so long as you are back by 11pm, and wear a Tshirt under that skimpy blouse, and make sure you avoid Liam, he’s a sick SOB, and bring who some milk from the late night shop when you come home. These are similar conversations held every day the world over, and the child may bitch and moan about her mum, but she will bring home the milk.
If her private emails were broadcast there would be a rift in the family, it’s like diaries used to be in previous ages nowadays it’s our emails. Which ARE all scanned by the way, I get Undertakers, and Health emails, as well as pain relief emails offering me services. You need to have a decent subject line before I open one and firstname.lastname@example.org is the only email I use, so any offers for my writing need to go there. I’m taking a chance now as I could get millions of hate emails, ok 3, one from Snowden and one from Trump and another from Hillary.
So if we think about WikiLeaks what is the purpose behind it? It’s to help Trump become President, who would be weaker than Hillary despite her faults, personally I’d vote for Bloomberg but he is not running, and I live in Birmingham England not Alabama so I have no vote anyway. Some things are secret for a reason, and if we go back to watching RED, some very strong things have to be done to protect a country. Hillary watched Bin Laden being executed live, while Trump was doing a beauty show.
WikiLeaks seeks to influence the Election by showing one sides inner workings, the sad reality is that this time around in USA 66% of all the voters don’t really like either of them. Today we had a major hack event in USA major companies had DOS attacks, it should be a wake-up call to USA, it should also wake up the entire population, THINK FOR YOURSELVES. And protect your computers before the whole country goes dark, just like in another Bruce Willis film. I have to go take a leak now.
