Huma Abedin sent State Department passwords to her unsecure Yahoo e-mail account

One of the problems with people on the secular left is that they are so fixated on gender and skin color, that they hire, appoint and promote people based on gender and skin color. It doesn’t matter which candidate is competent for the job, it only matters that they appear concerned about “diversity”. Affirmative action is dangerous and damaging in the private sector. For example, Equifax hired a woman who majored in music, and had no background in computer science, to be their head of electronic security.

Excerpt:

Equifax “Chief Security Officer” Susan Mauldin has a bachelor’s degree and a master of fine arts degree in music composition from the University of Georgia. Her LinkedIn professional profile lists no education related to technology or security.

This is the person who was in charge of keeping your personal and financial data safe — and whose apparent failings have put 143 million of us at risk from identity theft and fraud.

Then they were hacked, and 143 million accounts were compromised. But in the public sector, it’s worse. Public sector secrets affect our national security and our foreign policy. When public sector officials are careless, it’s not just that money is lost, it’s that lives are lost.

With that in mind, take a look at the latest news about Hillary Clinton’s most trusted aide.

The Daily Caller reports:

Huma Abedin forwarded sensitive State Department emails, including passwords to government systems, to her personal Yahoo email account before every single Yahoo account was hacked, a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of emails released as part of a lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch shows.

Abedin, the top aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, used her insecure personal email provider to conduct sensitive work. This guarantees that an account with high-level correspondence in Clinton’s State Department was impacted by one or more of a series of breaches — at least one of which was perpetrated by a “state-sponsored actor.”

The U.S. later charged Russian intelligence agent Igor Sushchin with hacking 500 million Yahoo email accounts. The initial hack occurred in 2014 and allowed his associates to access accounts into 2015 and 2016 by using forged cookies. Sushchin also worked for the Russian investment bank Renaissance Capital, which paid former President Bill Clinton $500,000 for a June 2010 speech in Moscow.

A separate hack in 2013 compromised three billion accounts across multiple Yahoo properties, and the culprit is still unclear. “All Yahoo user accounts were affected by the August 2013 theft,” the company said in a statement.

Abedin, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, regularly forwarded work emails to her personal humamabedin@yahoo.com address. “She would use these accounts if her (State) account was down or if she needed to print an email or document. Abedin further explained that it was difficult to print from the DoS system so she routinely forwarded emails to her non-DoS accounts so she could more easily print,” an FBI report says.

Abedin sent passwords for her government laptop to her Yahoo account on Aug. 24, 2009, an email released by the State Department in September 2017 shows.

Long-time Clinton confidante Sid Blumenthal sent Clinton an email in July 2009 with the subject line: “Important. Not for circulation. You only. Sid.” The message began “CONFIDENTIAL… Re: Moscow Summit.” Abedin forwarded the email to her Yahoo address, potentially making it visible to hackers.

If private sector workers forwarded sensitive work e-mails to their unsecured personal e-mail accounts, they would be fired immediately. But, millions and millions of people voted for Hillary Clinton. They did not care about her Clinton Foundation pay-to-play arrangement when she was Secretary of State. They did not care that she had a private, unsecure e-mail server, in order to break government records laws. She was a woman, and it was her turn. Huma Abedin is a non-white woman, so it was really her turn.

We aren’t serious as a nation about hiring the best people. We treat elections like popularity contests. We vote for who we like. We vote in order to feel good about how compassionate we are with other people’s money. We vote to end wars by retreating, as if retreating from a fight is a deterrent to evil nations.

When I talk to people who vote for Democrats, they can’t even tell me what the national debt it, but they are proud and enthusiastic Democrats. They don’t feel any shame about not understanding anything about the world. They feel that their opinion is important, and no study or effort is needed to be informed before voting. This isn’t the right way to elect leaders.

  1. Clearly, different standards are used to judge privileged people. The favoring of gender or race over actual ability is a form of modern bigotry. In former times, able and talented minorities were overlooked in favor of less able and less talented whites. Today, talented and able people are being overlooked in the name of diversity. Curiously, those who insist that the abler and more knowledgeable person receive primary consideration for suitable positions are often called elitists. One might think that opportunities offered on the basis of merit would be the best and most neutral way of awarding promotions. Have we really become so silly as to disbelieve the self-evident?

    It’s truly all superficial with them that they don’t take into account things like internal character/disposition, merit, or skills. But I think we are truly seeing what unfolds in a nanny state/mamacracy.

  3. Being in the financial software industry, we are heavily regulated and if there are uh … problems (e.g., passwords left out in the open, emailed to one’s own private email account or via facebook, etc.), the SEC slaps various people and organizations with fines.
    But as davidmx3000 observed, “Clearly, different standards are used to judge privileged people.”
    I don’t think it’s just gender (note that Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, etc. get belittled — even sayings like “I can see Rusia from My House” originated from SNL, but got attributed to Sarah Palin).
    [Palin was actually correct. The Little Diomede Island belongs to Alaska, and the Big Diomede Island, 2.4 miles away, belongs to part of the Chukotsky District of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug of Russia.]
    But anyway. Conservative women are ridiculed and satirized.
    Now, if you happen to be a Muslim female, high up advisor/aide to a liberal candidate, “The Chosen One,” I guess such a person is above the law.
