Let’s talk content, not hackers’ identity - Putin on DNC hack
Why does everything Putin says sound so reasonable, especially when compared to the rhetoric produced by either of the two leading presidential candidates?

Hillary Threatens Russia With War - Neocon Media Doesn't Even Notice
Putin impresses me as a great statesman of historic stature. Hillary seems like a pathetic shell without substance. She's a national embarrassment.

Pressure Mounts to Punish Russia For Hacking Without Evidence And Before Investigations Are Concluded
First of all, there is no evidence that the hacking of the DNC server was sponsored by any state. Secondly, there are a couple dozen other countries that are just as likely or even more likely to be hacking targets in the USA. Thirdly, who really gives a darn? The DNC is not a governmental agency and so why should we care? And finally, the nation that hacks other nations more than any other nation is the USA and so isn't it just a little hypocritical to be complaining about someone else hacking us?
Let's punish Russia for possibly maybe having a potentially theoretical hand in exposing the DNC's massive corruption, but let's not talk about any of the actual corruption or punish anyone involved.

Wada leak 2.0: Hackers release second batch of documents, causing more doping allegations
Thank goodness for hackers, otherwise we'd never find about hypocrisy like this. Rules should be applied consistently and fairly or not at all!

WADA Leak: Rafael Nadal, Mo Farah among sport icons exposed in results list
To be fair every single one of these athletes should be stripped of any medals or titles that they've won. This prescription loophole is just a way to give certain chosen athletes an exemption from the rules while allowing others to be banned. How is that fair?

This guy says that Clinton would be an excellent president! He serves up that line with a ton of sarcasm, but that's what he says!

US vows action against email hacks
There is no evidence that Russia is doing anything. Hacking happens all the time and there are hundreds of possible groups that could be successful. They all know how to get in without leaving a trace and they all know how to route their messages so as to trick even the most savvy cyber-investigators. What we have here is an attempt by the Obama administration to use fear of Russia to motivate voters to vote for Hillary. It's an obvious trick, but Hillary supporters aren't intelligent enough to realize that they are being manipulated.
