I’ve been telling people not to get too excited about Infowars, Alex Jones and the rest of the over-excited “alt-right”. Just because they are suddenly saying things you like to hear doesn’t make them any more accurate than before.
Today provides such a reality check with Infowars writing:
Internet security expert Kim Dotcom says that Hillary Clinton is in “serious trouble,” with new information set to leak that some speculate could be a Wikileaks release of Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 deleted emails.
“There’s unpublished material, yet to come out. Clinton is in serious trouble,” the Megaupload founder tweeted last night.
Megaupload founder and security expert Kim Dotcom has been tweeting up a storm. There isn’t an election he can’t influence it seems.
Kim Dotcom’s promise is worthy of attention given his long standing relationship with Wikileaks and Julian Assange. During an interview with Bloomberg in May 2015, Dotcom (real name Kim Schmitz) acknowledged, “I love to talk to them”.
He also predicted that Julian Assange would be Hillary’s worst nightmare in 2016 “because he has access to information,” a forecast that very much came true.
Kim Dotcom. Julian Assange. Glenn Greenwald.
When it comes to politics and “security”, it seems the same ol’ bunch are always at it. Just a pity they couldn’t organise the local clowns like Matt McCarten, Clare Curran and Laila Harre to deliver the death knell to John Key.
As far back as December 2014, Schmitz also tweeted that he was “Hillary’s worst nightmare in 2016!”
Radio host Rush Limbaugh picked up on the issue during his radio show on Friday, speculating that Kim Dotcom could have been the hacker that handed Hillary’s deleted emails to Wikileaks.
“In all of these Podesta emails there’s not a single Hillary Clinton email in the bunch, if you have noticed. It’s Podesta emailing everybody, the DNC, everybody in the Hillary campaign, but there are no Hillary Clinton emails in this Podesta dump,” said Limbaugh.
“Along comes Kim Dotcom who’s got an axe to grind with the U.S. government, the Obama administration. He knows Assange. So the people — nobody knows — this is all speculation. What’s going on here is that Kim Dotcom has worked with Assange and is really the hacker. It’s not the Russians,” he added.
Just like Nicky Hager only got emails with all the Labour and Green parties stuff stripped out.
Like it or not. Whether it is the Russians, the Middle East or the Hackers – politics will never be the same again.
