This morning, Wikileaks announced a new (fourth) dump of emails from Hillary Clinton insider John Podesta. This latest dump of close to 1,200 brings the total to more than 6,500. According to Zero Hedge, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange claims he has a pile of more than 50,000 messages.

It will take some time to parse through the emails to find the “nuggets,” but the first little gem, while not particularly salacious, is typical Clinton. Apparently she was so certain of her coronation, she’d decided on Tim “The Eyebrow” Kaine as her veep pick back in July.

Zero Hedge reports, Cited by AFP, Podesta described the timing of the leak, which came late on Friday, as a “curious coincidence”, coming shortly after The Washington Post published a shock video of Donald Trump making lewd boasts about groping women in 2005.
Alternatively, one can say that the release of the Trump tapes came as a “curious coincidence” just as Wikileaks would reveal what much of the right of center audience was so interested in.
The veteran political aide, who served in the Obama and Bill Clinton administrations, suggested that the release “was their countermove to try to take the public’s attention off the despicable things that Donald Trump said on that video.” Again, one can counter with precisely the opposite, and judging by the amount of media time dedicated to each, it appears Wikileaks lost.
Podesta declined to answer most questions about those e-mails, saying, “I’m not confirming the validity of the e-mails.”
“Whether that was Mr Assange’s decision to try to help Mr Trump or whether there was some coordination involved, I have no way of knowing. I’m just saying, it’s an awfully curious coincidence that it happened virtually as soon as the water temperature was moving to a boil,” Podesta told journalists aboard a campaign plane traveling from Miami to New York. Padesta added: “We can’t confirm the accuracy of those leaks, we know that the Russians might have passed on doctored documents.”
Translation: the leaks were correct, and while we have no idea who is behind them, we will just blame the Russians – after all, how can they possibly retaliate with diplomatic conditions already dreadful.
Whatever comes out of this latest dump, it’s time to brace ourselves for another Trump tape from some off-guarded moment years ago. His pussycat comment can only have so much mileage before the shock of it dissipates.
As we reported yesterday, NBC is already on the hunt for “Apprentice” footage. And now there’s a report that Trump supposedly walked into the dressing room of a 1997 Miss Teen USA beauty pageant and (gasp) looked at the contestants while they were changing and maybe even saw them naked.
However, only four of 51 contestants remember the incident and of the four, three have remained anonymous.
According to The Hill, The fourth, former Miss Vermont Teen USA Mariah Billado, says she remembered Trump saying as he walked in, “Don’t worry, ladies, I’ve seen it all before.”
She also remembers telling Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, a co-host at the time, about the incident.
“Yeah, he does that,” Ivanka responded.
In my teens I (Michele Hickford) sang and danced in a number of shows. I was a Great America singer at the theme park in California, and also performed in “Beach Blanket Babylon” in San Francisco. We had numerous costume changes. People of all genders were constantly walking in and out. But we didn’t just stand around naked waiting for men to come in and leer. That’s not the way it works.
And by the way, one of our readers tweeted a superb point:
@AllenWest Outrage coming from same liberals who want gender neutral locker rooms, rest rooms & changing rooms in schools & other places

Donald Trump is a man who likes to look at beautiful women. He’s married to one now. He’s outspoken and likes to talk trash with the guys. He’s made and lost and made a bunch of money – and used the tax laws to his advantage. He has a funny hair.
But not a single one of those qualities, not a single word we’re aware he’s said compares to the lies, deceit and corruption that emanates from Hillary Clinton and her serial
rapist philandering, cigar-shoving, perv of a husband.
We are now well aware that Hillary Clinton can – and has been – bought by everyone, including the Saudis (as they were busily funding ISIS).
Donald Trump cannot be bought. He scares the crap out of the left AND the wet blanket GOP establishment.
Get ready for another tape.
