Internet Catches Hillary in Three Provable Email Falsehoods

Internet Catches Hillary in Three Provable Email Falsehoods

Took only minutes

Earlier this afternoon, Hillary Clinton held a press conference to address questions concerning the use of her private email from private servers.

Beginning with two flimsy decoys, Clinton first addressed women’s rights and went on to criticize Senate Republicans for their letter to Iran’s Ayatollah. Unsurprisingly, sites like Vox took the bait.

Then, the treasure troves of the internet opened up and out sprung three little facts that prove three of Hillary’s emphatic statements false. And this is only the beginning.

While the statements that follow are multifaceted in consequence and scope, for the sake of brevity, we’ll focus strictly on their veracity.

#1: Hillary only used one phone

“When I got to work as Secretary of State, I opted for convenience to use my personal email account which was allowed by the State Department, because I thought it would be easier to carry just one devise for my work and personal emails instead of two. Looking back, it would’ve been better if I’d used a second email account and carried a separate phone, but at the time this didn’t seem like an issue.”

Just weeks ago (February 24th to be precise), at the Watermark Silicon Valley Conference for Women, Hillary said she had both an iPhone and wait for it… a Blackberry.

We’re supposed to believe someone who can’t manage two electronic devices simultaneously should be given the White House? But I digress. This particular claim silly as it may be, is one of the most important because it’s from this one phone business that Hillary built the rest of her case. Rather than speak specifically to the email, Clinton kept shifting to the point that she should have had two separate devices.

#2: Bill Clinton uses email, too

“The system we used was set up for President Clinton’s office,” said Hillary this afternoon. Again, she said, “the server contains personal communications from my husband and me.

There’s just one problem with this statement — Bill Clinton doesn’t use email.

According to an article published by the Wall Street Journal this morning, Bill Clinton has sent two emails in his life — both while he was President:

The former president, who does regularly use Twitter, has sent a grand total of two emails during his entire life, both as president, says Matt McKenna, his spokesman. After leaving office, Mr. Clinton established his own domain that staff use–@presidentclinton.com. But Mr. Clinton still doesn’t use email himself, Mr. McKenna said.

While their email system may have been set up for Bill, the claim that he actively utilizes their secret server is false, unless he lied to the Wall Street Journal.

#3: There were no server security breaches

“It [email system] has numerous safeguards. It was on property, guarded by the Secret Service, and there were no security breaches,” said Hillary.

Meanwhile, as Jim Geraghty at National Review reminds us, that’s simply not the case:

Someone should ask her how she can claim it’s secure when the hacker “Guccifer” got into her e-mails with Sid Blumenthal and sent them to Kremlin-funded RT media.

The question is not, “Did hackers get into Hillary Clinton’s e-mails?” The question is, “How many hackers that we don’t know about got into Hillary Clinton’s e-mails?”

Is there more? Certainly. But we’re just getting started.

    Shall we round up the usual suspects?

    “Internet Catches Hillary in Three Provable Email Falsehoods”

    Only three!? That’s the real shock.

I’m not sure whether we’re allowed to insert links or not, but this link discusses the Hillary email thingy from a geek’s perspective.

Very interesting.

Is it just me, or did anybody else think, “Wow. THAT’s are REALLY bad look for her”?

She looks like a character in a Soviet Era painting with her hair like that.

      Bill thought it was kinda hot too. Only he was dreaming of the Devil with the blue dress on.

      She’s the devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
      Devil with the blue dress on

      Good golly, Miss Molly

    Your question implies that she has had a good “look” from time to time. Most generous of you, but I certainly haven’t seen one.

Henry Hawkins | March 10, 2015 at 6:13 pm

Hillary partying like it’s 1993.

If this doesn’t kill her campaign nothing will. Dems are, um, forgiving of their own, so she may make the nomination, but the general? Only a John McCain, Mitt Romney, or Jeb Bush could lose to this foundering buffoon of a politician.

    So you’re not going to fix? C’mon, this is getting embarrassing.

      “When I got to work as Secretary of State, I opted for convenience to use my personal email account which was allowed by the State Department, because I thought it would be easier to carry just one devise for my work and personal emails instead of two. “

      Come on. That’s in quotes. You’ve attributed to Hillary a grammatical mistake even she is not stupid enough to make.

Expect the MSM news stories to begin: “Republican critics say…”

Hubby just said that all of Bill Clinton’s communication was done orally! Sometimes the guy is really funny!

Like we expected anything honest, intelligent, competent or fresh from this corrupt, talentless, incompetent old hack?

Well…I am pretty sure that you can hook up ONE device to MORE THAN ONE email account.

It’s bull from every perspective and every angle.

unless he lied to the Wall Street Journal

And we all know Bill Clinton’s word is unimpeachable…

    Good ole Bill, bless his heart. He was impeached but it has been so long ago we have all but forgotten about it. Now when we think of him we just have warm fuzzy thoughts and, as you say, his word is thought of as the unimpeachable word of a great former statesman who definitely knows what the meaning of the word “is” is

The only sure fire way of getting all the emails…

http://rightreactions.blogspot.com/2015/03/nobrainer.html

Add a fourth and fifth falsehood: (4) that you need another phone to access a second email account, and (5) her claim that Federal rules allowed the use of a personal email account

Hillary actually wants us to believe that it was easier for her to have IT people set up a private email server, secure it, maintain it, and so forth than it would be to have Huma schlep a second phone in her carry-on bag. Utter nonsense.

I missed it but someone told me she said it was bills old server from when he was potus.
and thats pure bs, the software used would not install on anything that old.

She had all the time in the world to prepare, it was a mostly scripted affair with the fawning prog media and she STILL couldn’t get through it without leaving a trail of lies behind her. She’s like my old Labrador Retriever, leaving a trail of noxious fumes in his wake when he strolls through the room. Every place she goes it smells of shit. The Dims are panicking…at this point they’d like nothing more than to take the old gal for a walk down by the creek.

She knew the lies would be exposed. She cannot be THAT stupid or think that the rest of the world is THAT stupid.

She lied boldly because that’s her way of extending her middle finger at us.

She did it because she can do it.
That’s the way it works.

OMFG.

Earlier today, I saw a tweet from an Egyptian blogger laughing at her, for not knowing how to use her phone. Now I know why.

I have one device and I have two email accounts on it. I’m smarter than Hillary Clinton

1. A twelve year old knows you can manage more than one e-mail account on one device.
2. She recounted in her book her love affair with her iPad.
3. The iPad wasn’t secure either, and she knew it and used it anyway. (http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/03/10/clintons-ipad-while-secretary-state-not-certified-as-secure-sources-say/)
4. Hillary claims that A.) she had only one e-mail account and conducted all of her business as SoS on that account; and B.) that she didn’t handle classified information through that account. How is this possible? She’s either lying about the number of accounts she had, lying about classified information passing through her account, or both.
5. As her Deputy Chief of Staff, Huma Adedin almost certainly had access to Hillary’s mail/mail account. How much sensitive information could have been forwarded by Ms. Abedin (or by others with access to Hillary’s e-mail) to her Muslim Brotherhood contacts (or to others) because nobody was monitoring the server for such potential leaks? (Anyone using the Clinton server for such espionage could use the same procedures to eliminate evidence of the leaks that Hillary claims to have used on her personal e-mails.)

I just read on Drudge I think that some IT guys had traced her IP address to a government owned building in Manhattan. It could be her political office which means that it was not secure and was not watched by any agency. This woman is a lying machine. Next she’ll tell us that she did have two devices but had to sit on one when the shooting started and it got hit!

Link to the vine comparing Hillary’s press conference to Bill’s:

3: There were no server security breaches

“Guccifer” broke into Sid “Vicious” Blumenthal’s AOL account and harvested email to him from her, and maybe the reverse if AOL keeps copies of sent mail. And that sort of email is sent in the clear, without encryption. Which shows she didn’t care about security, but tells us nothing about the security of the clintonemail.com back then.

Note that whatever or wherever that domain points to today is not necessarily the same as it was back then, and pertaining to that, it’s been reported that at some point Google’s GMail service was configured as a backup mail server.

None of these three examples actually are provable lies.

The first one is not so much a lie as just nonsense, and you can assume it to be a lie only because it is nonsense.

There is, however, no contradiction between having several devices in early 2015, and wanting to use only one in 2009 through 2013.

What I found flabbergasting there was her pretending that if she could have only one device, it should be her personal one rather than one supplied by the State Department!

The second example is not necessarily a lie. Hillary Clinton did not say Bill sent her e-mail. She said:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2015/03/10/transcript-hillary-clinton-addresses-e-mails-iran/

The server contains personal communications from my husband and me,

The personal communications – and of course we know that the examples she gives are not the reason she deleted e-mail – but anyway the “personal communication” from Bill might be voicemail messages that were translated into text and put into e-mail. This is actually quite readily available now.

And if she wrote him back, rather than telephoning him, it could have been printed out before being shown to him, like e-mail sent to the White House in 1993 was. It could even have been set up to do this semi-automatically when e-mail arrived from certain addresses. Or Bill Clinton could even have read it on a computer, but just noot responded that way.

The third example – the claim that the hacker “Guccifer” hacked into her e-mails and then leaked some to RT.com is just plain wrong. There probably is no “Guccifer”, probably no emails from Sidney Blumenthal to Hillary Clinton were hacked, but rather these are Russian forgeries, and had they been hacked, it would have Sidney Blumenthal who had been hacked and not Hillary Clinton’s server. I mean this is obvious. The only point of truth maybe there is that Hillary Clinton, for some purposes used a clintonemail.com address, but this could have been known to the FSB from a hundred sources since the Clinton Foundation was communicating wiith foreign governments that way. That would not be giving anybody the idea that she was using that instead of government e-mail – even if Sidney Blumenthal had sent her a report that he would have had no way of getting the information to write. These four memos from Sidney Blumenthal are almost certainly Kremlin forgeris, just like the excerpts from her books that were circulated in Labanon and Egypt were. In one of these cases, even the book was imaginary!!

tHere pr

First, of all, of course, The Kremlin is known to create forgeries, and in fact forged

    Good grief. Are you interviewing for a job as Hillary’s spox or something? Go ahead and tell us how the spooge on Monica’s blue dress isn’t really evidence of Bill’s guilt while you’re at it.
