The Writer's Life 10/19 - Bus Stops Here

Ecuador's government acknowledged that it cut off WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's internet access on Tuesday at its embassy in London after the whistle-blowing site published a trove of emails damaging to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. Assange took asylum at the embassy in June 2012 to avoid being sent to Sweden, where he remains wanted over an allegation of rape. British authorities have made clear he would be arrested should he leave. The South American country must now regret hosting Assange, as he is no longer a darling of the left. "For the good of the United States and the world, and for my personal appreciation of her, I'd like to see Hillary win," president Raphael Correa told the Moscow-backed RT broadcaster last month. The left loved Assange when he went after President Bush, the right hated him. The sentiments are now reversed. Clever devil that Assange is, he has arranged it so that a failure to log in on his part - if he should be found dead, for instance - automatically triggers a document dump, so the repressive move actually backfired. He fears for his life. One of the leaked emails reveals that Hillary suggested a drone strike against him.

James O'Keefe is another thorn in the side of leftists. His minions infiltrated groups that boasted of inciting violence at Trump rallies. One operative has been thrown under the bus by the campaign. He bragged about using the homeless and mentally ill to foment trouble. A higher-up stepped aside, probably to the shadows, claiming he didn't want to hurt Hillary's chances. Two years ago Sean Hannity advised O'Keefe, who came to prominence with secretly recorded revelations about the monsters working at Planned Parenthood, to dot his i's and cross his t's, as the left would surely unleash its fury on him. He has 12 lawyers on his payroll to insure that everything his group does is legal. It's the kind of undercover journalism the mainstream media used to do before it went into the tank for Dems. It was silent on the matter until the firing forced it to cover the story. Despite the efforts of Assange and O'Keefe, most voters seem unaffected by the findings, especially the crucial undecideds, if there are any left this late in the game. The latest polls show Hillary leading by six points. She has been underground for several days. She will emerge from hiding for tonight's final debate. It is looking bleak for the deplorables, of which I'm proud to say I'm one. In a side bar that will amuse New Yorkers who maintain a sense of humor despite party affiliation, the last name of one of Hillary's top advisors is Mook.

I've been dying to get to this story since radio talk host Mark Simone mentioned it this morning. Police in Lawrenceville, Georgia are investigating Hillary's Democratic National Committee bus after witnesses saw it dumping human waste on the campaign trail. Tuesday morning a local businessman took several photos of the bus dumping the stuff directly into a storm drain. Police said they found a foul smell and toilet paper scattered everywhere. A Hazmat team was called in to deal with the disaster. According to Simone, buses are supposed to dump their waste at places specifically designed for it. This story has so many levels: comedy, hypocrisy, irony, symbolism. It's exactly the type of "Do as I say, not as I do" behavior one would expect from know-it-alls. Here's a link to a TV news report about it:

My thanks to the kind folks who bought books on this gorgeous indian summer day. My thanks also to the woman who donated a batch. She has passed me hundreds of times. She doesn't seem to be able to walk a straight line. I don't know if she has a drinking or physiological problem. My thanks also to Matt, who has begun reading Killing, and said he once had a conversation with his son, who was contemplating joining the Marines, similar to the one that opens the novel. Despite taking a bullet that ended his service in Vietnam, he is not bitter about having been there.
