Hillary’s BleachBit Controversy
by Stephen Lendman
BleachBit software is a modern-day version of Orwell’s memory hole - explained in his dystopian 1984 novel.
It’s high-tech censorship to disappear inconvenient or embarrassing documents and other records, making it appear they never existed.
In Orwell’s world, the so-called Ministry of Truth rewrote history to match state propaganda. Hillary operates the same way, Big Lies substituting for disturbing reality.
Appearing on Fox News, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R. SC) said emails she wanted excluded from public scrutiny, “she and her lawyers…deleted.”
“They didn’t just push the delete button. They had them deleted where even God can’t read them. They were using something called BleachBit.”
“You don’t use (this software) for yoga emails. (It’s for) something you really do not want the world to see.” Here’s how the company describes its product, saying:
“BleachBit quickly frees disk space and tirelessly guards your privacy. Free cache, delete cookies, clear Internet history, shred temporary files, delete logs, and discard junk you didn't know was there.”
“Designed for Linux and Windows systems, it wipes clean a thousand applications including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Adobe Flash, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari, and more.”
“Beyond simply deleting files, BleachBit includes advanced features such as shredding files to prevent recovery, wiping free disk space to hide traces of files deleted by other applications, and vacuuming Firefox to make it faster. Better than free, BleachBit is open source.”
In other words, whatever users want disappeared forever without a trace can be accomplished through this software. Once erased, recovery isn’t possible. Things are wiped clean like they never existed.
Clinton lied claiming all deleted emails were personal. If so, why go to the trouble of using BleachBit to assure they never see the light of day. Gowdy believes they’re related to her pay-to-play scam, material she wants hidden from public view.
In response to Hillary claiming the issue amounts to “a lot of smoke (with) no fire,” he called her actions “arson…pyromania…not smoke.”
“Even listening to her talk about the Clinton Foundation, I couldn't help but go back and remember the press conference she gave on her emails where every single thing she said proved to be false.”
“That’s the interesting thing about credibility and believability: You can't just keep it in one compartment. When you are a habitual, serial liar in this facet of life, it tends to make people not believe you in other facets of life. So when she’s talking about the Clinton Foundation, I go back and remember her saying there’s no classified information, I only used one device, I did it for convenience. All of which were proven to be false.”
All politicians lie. Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton honed to a fine art. Nothing they say is credible. They’re serial liars, unfit for any public office.
