"Class Consciousness" raising from Wikileaks Podesta emails cache. Seeing the forest of the 0.01% and how they consider their position above the herd. Thanks Ryan.
"They are, they think, not a class at all but rather the enlightened ones, the people who must be answered to but who need never explain themselves."
"The people at the top tier of American life all know each other. They are all engaged in promoting one another’s careers, constantly."
"There are honors. Venture capital. Foundation grants. Endowed chairs. Advanced degrees. For them the door revolves. The friends all succeed. They break every boundary."

John Podesta's best friend at the Justice Dept. will manage the investigation of the Abedin/Wiener emails. This should help things move-along quickly.

75.9% of 1000 Americans surveyed believe the American media want Hillary Clinton to win.
This summary and update of all the Clinton corruption investigations (four, right?) being carried out by the FBI, and hampered (less, now) by the Justice Department, led me to this tidbit/clue.
"It seems that some of the incriminating documents are contained in a file titled “Life Insurance”. This suggests that Abedin stashed incriminating material for insurance in the event that the Clintons threatened her life."
I bet Comey, Obama and the Clintons know what is in that file.
I can't confirm the scenario laid out here, about the "life insurance" Huma Abedin kept. This story says Weiner just forwarded Huma's emails to himself when opportunities presented. That's plausible. It's all plausible, which doesn't make it true, but if it's true, this is the take-down of the entire Clinton machine.
"If the FBI finds evidence of very serious crimes committed by Hillary Clinton, she could actually be forced to withdraw from the race on the eve of the election, and that would throw the entire process into a state of chaos."
Bev Harris, of Black Box Voting, has the explanation of the latest and best and most broadly used vote adjustment ever, the "Fractional Voting" feature, which is inherent in the currently dominant software.
“All evidence that [rigged] fractional values ever existed [in the GEMS system] can be removed instantly even from the underlying database using a setting in the GEMS data tables, in which case even instructing GEMS to show the [rigged] decimals will fail to reveal they were used.”
Projections on what will happen in Mosul, Iraq around the eviction of ISIS. There are conflicting interest groups, all armed, and lots of power shifts in recent years. Well written article by a writer who was there for a previous transition of power.
The account of flight through Aleppo's "death corridor", by a human who made it (unlike most, from what I read).
"As soon as the family reached safety, tragic news came from home. Having learned of Khaled's escape, Ahrar al-Sham fighters detained his friends and four brothers."
