Not a joke: Cybersecurity company FireEye invites Hillary Clinton to speak on cyber defense

Useful idiots (definition): People who are unwitting propagandists for a cause, the goals of which they are not fully aware, and who are used cynically by the leaders of the cause.

In the case of a publicly-traded, Silicon Valley cybersecurity company called FireEye, they aren’t just useful idiots, they are plain idiots.

While she was secretary of state in the Obama administration, instead of using the State Department’s secure server for her email, Hillary Clinton used an illegal private server in her basement for her email, including sending and receiving classified material. Her people also tried to conceal evidence by scrubbing the private server. When asked about that, Hillary feigned innocence, saying she didn’t know what it meant to “wipe” a server: “What, like with a cloth or something? I don’t know how it works digitally at all.” (Fox News)

Hillary should have been indicted and jailed, but before the FBI even opened an investigation of her illegal private server, she was exonerated by corrupt FBI director James Comey.

And yet cybersecurity company FireEye has seen fit to invite Hillary Clinton to deliver the keynote speech at the 2019 Cyber Defense Summit, October 9-10, in Washington, DC.

FireEye made the announcement in a tweet on May 30, 2019:

We are pleased to announce that Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will be a featured keynote at our in October! Secretary Clinton will engage in an intimate Q&A keynote discussion with Kevin Mandia.

On its website, FireEye touts the Cyber Defense Summit as an opportunity for executives and security practitioners to hear “informative and insightful keynotes from industry thought leaders,” “share best practices, learn about the latest advancements, and enhance your cyber preparedness,” and learn how to “mitigate, detect, and respond to cyber attacks.”

FireEye’s tweet rightly received these incredulous responses on Twitter:

“HAHAHAHAHAHAHA”

“This is a parody, right?”

“Is this satire”

“Is this a bad joke??? Unbelievable…”

“Are you trying to become the biggest joke in the industry?”

“Congratulations! You are now the laughingstock of the entire industry!”

“The irony is unreal. Or is this a summit about how not to practice cyber security?”

“Is this the ? paid to speak about cyber security. Thanks for the laugh today”

“Are you giving out swag bags with smash blackberries, hammer, Mini servers and bleach bit?”

“Let me guess, John Podesta wasn’t available to talk about the importance of easy to remember passwords”

“I want to learn how to make emails go missing and how to properly smash a hard drive. When do tickets go on sale?”

“I would like to register for the breakout session on how to efficiently delete 33K emails. If full, sign me up instead for the session on how to safely handle BleachBit.”

“America is assuming either u don’t know/don’t care that allowed foreign governments to hack her private server with TS info. Way to reward a person that allowed Rone, Bub, Stevens and Smith to be killed and lie about it to America & in the Faces of their Families”

“Very poor business decision. You alienate half due to politics then the rest based on the fact you actually believe she is qualified. How can anyone recommend or use or based on their belief that her cyber awareness and actions were appropriate?

FireEye is the same company that the Clinton Foundation in 2016 hired to investigate a possible data breach. The company found that no files from the foundation had leaked publicly. (Fortune)

It is hilarious to read that one of the reasons for this symposium is to “share best practices.” Duh! People should stay as far away from these folks as possible. I would say they are anti-American.

This is just one of the ways her owners pay her for carrying water for them. They “donated” to her “foundation” when she was in office. Now, it’s “speaking engagements”.

Money doesn’t mean anything when you print as much as you like. That’s how they protect their assets. All the toadies know that her owners can hand out cash. That’s how they acquire their wealth on a civil servants salary.

Can she still attend and present her vast knowledge of cyber defense from prison? I might attend in that case.

I would say this is their way of giving us their middle finger. They are “investigating” Trump and threatening to imprison him (for what?). We KNOW Hillary is guilty as sin so this is what they do to show who’s in charge.

Her only tidbit of advice she can offer is to keep plenty of bleachbit on hand.

I just wonder how much she’s getting paid for this gig.

It wasn’t long ago that tickets for her tour with Slick was only going for $2.

Isn’t having Hillary talk about cybersecurity akin to having the fox give a talk about guarding henhouses?

This reminds me of The Laura Silsby situation. Silsby was the director of New Life Childrens Refuge and was busted for smuggling children out of Haiti – twice. The second time she was going to do time, so who you gonna call? Bill and Hill of course, and they intervened and got her off the hook. Now she works for a company that provides software for the Amber Alert system under the name Laura Gayler. You literally can’t make this stuff up. Like Hildebeast lecturing on cybersecurity, just a little joke. Why aren’t you laughing goyim?

She is going to advise about “cyber prepredness….etc?” Does that mean what kind of hammer/weightiness to buy and employ for destroying electronics?

MIZ CLINTON would do much better if she was to hold a seminar on how to murder anyone who gets in your way.
