The latest activity by Wikileaks dumped some 5 million emails and documents hacked from the database of Stratfor Intelligence. The emails reveal Democrats’ effort to steal the 2008 election.

Shocking revelations from a Wikileaks document dump show the Democrat Party committed a felony when it stuffed ballot boxes in Ohio and Philadelphia during the 2008 presidential election.

A memo further revealed that the so-called “Reverend” Jesse Jackson was paid a handsome figure to keep his mouth shut about candidate Obama, a man for whom he had little regard.

The same internal memo revealed that Obama’s campaign was taking Russian money surreptitiously. The memo:

** Internal Use Only – Pls Do Not Forward **

1) The black Dems were caught stuffing the ballot boxes in Philly and Ohio as reported the night of the election and Sen. McCain chose not to fight. The matter is not dead inside the party. It now becomes a matter of sequence now as to how and when to “out”.

2) It appears the Dems “made a donation” to Rev. Jesse (no, they would never do that!) to keep his yap shut after his diatribe about the Jews and Israel. A little bird told me it was a “nice six-figure donation”. This also becomes a matter of how and when to out.

3) The hunt is on for the sleezy Russian money into O-mans coffers. A smoking gun has already been found. Will get more on this when the time is right. My source was too giddy to continue. Can you say Clinton and ChiCom funny money? This also becomes a matter of how and when to out.

Wikileaks last week began disclosing the emails obtained by WikiLeaks and hacktivist group Anonymous that expose the dirty dealings and election tampering done by Democratic Party operatives and the Obama campaign.

Stratfor, under the leadership of founder and Chief Executive George Friedman, counts Fortune 500 corporations and federal government agencies and the military among its subscribers. In a statement, Stratfor said it had built “good sources” in many countries, “as any publisher of global geopolitical analysis would do.”

In a published report, a second Wikileaks email indicated that 2008 Republican presidential candidate John McCain decided not to pursue legal action against the Democrats for engaging in voter fraud, believing that to do so would have thrown the country into civil unrest, and thus let the matter drop.

Emails between Stratfor staffers indicate that McCain’s actions were viewed as baffling, to say the least.

In other related news, the man believed to have provided much information to Wikileaks, Bradley Manning, was suggested to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

DHS’ Big Sis tracking keywords on Twitter, Facebook

If you thought this was 2012, guess again. It’s 1984, the Orwellian year of Big Brother. Er … make that Big Sis.

An internal document released by the Electronic Privacy Information Center, or EPIC, a private advocacy group, says a Department of Homeland Security contractor is searching social sites like Facebook and Twitter for an ever-changing list of keywords. We mentioned this in our Feb. 13, 2012 installment of Surfin’ Safari, “Doomsday clock ticking on Internet freedom.”

Early in 2010, the DHS awarded General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems a contract worth $11.3 million

Karma? Is that one of the words Big Sis is tracking?

Google answers your questions about privacy changes

Last week, I told you how you could clear your Google web history. But what if you are one of the few who doesn’t use any of Google’s services, but communicate with those who do, like Gmail users?

Now playing at the Princess Theater, Urbana, Ill.

Congratulations to WND readers Raymond O’Connor of Tupelo, Miss., and Dulcie Rodriguez of Coral Gables, Fla., who were among the first to correctly guess actor Frank McRae in his portrayal of Hazel in the 1982 film “Cannery Row.” The film was based on the novel by John Steinbeck.

The selection was tied to last week’s Time Capsule item when in 1902, author John Steinbeck was born in Salinas, Calif.

The quote was: “I love Doc! He was a character witness for me, and I ain’t got no character.”

This week’s quote: “Our country, the noblest country in the history of men, was based on the principle of individualism. The principle of man’s inalienable rights. It was a country where a man was free to seek his own happiness, to gain and produce, not to give up and renounce. To prosper, not to starve. To achieve, not to plunder. To hold as his highest possession a sense of his personal value. And as his highest virtue, his self respect. Look at the results. That is what the collectivists are now asking you to destroy, as much of the earth has been destroyed.”

Name the movie, the actor and the character. Send your answer to me at the email address below. Please be sure to add your town and state. Good luck!
