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)

For Mollie Tibbetts, killed by an illegal, it’s racist to oppose illegal immigration

Mollie Tibbetts was a 20-year-old college student at the University of Iowa.

She was last seen at around 7:30 pm on July 18, 2018, after she went for a jog around a neighborhood in Brooklyn, Iowa — a little town of just 1,400 people. (See DCG’s post here.)

On August 21, police arrested Cristhian Rivera, 24, for first-degree murder after he led them to Mollie Tibbetts’ body in a field of corn stalks.

Rivera is an illegal border-crosser from Mexico and has been in the area for 4 to 7 years, illegally, working at a dairy farm under a different name, John Budd.

Rivera told police he stopped his car and ran alongside Tibbetts before she told him to leave her alone or she would call police. Rivera claimed he “blacked out” after that and later found Tibbetts’ body in the trunk of his car. He then hid her body among corn husks in a remote field. (Inside Edition)

President Trump took to Twitter after Mollie’s body was found:

Mollie Tibbetts, an incredible young woman, is now permanently separated from her family. We need the wall.

And now, the rest of the story….

We on FOTM often exclaim “You can’t fix stupid” at some news about a useful idiot — a person who believes in and advocates for a cause, but is not fully aware of its goals or true nature, and is used cynically by the leaders of the cause.

Sadly, Mollie Tibbetts was a useful idiot. Even worse, her father, Rob Tibbetts, is an unregenerate “Progressive” who demonizes those whose political views differ from his.

To begin, Mollie Tibbetts was a leftist, through and through:

  • According to Business Insider, Mollie “was a proud feminist and supporter of Hillary Clinton.”
  • On October 11, 2017, Mollie tweeted her support of baby-killers Planned Parenthood:
  • On December 12, 2017, Mollie, who’s white, tweeted “I hate white people”:

Mollie’s excuse may be that she was young and a college student who was thoroughly brainwashed and indoctrinated by Marxist professors.

But what is her father’s excuse?

In an op/ed in The Des Moines Register on September 1, 2018, Rob Tibbetts spoke out against the “heartless” and “despicable” people who use Mollie and her murder as a “pawn” to advance their “profoundly racist” views against illegal immigration:

They have instead chosen to callously distort and corrupt Mollie’s tragic death to advance a cause she vehemently opposed…views she believed were profoundly racist. The act grievously extends the crime that stole Mollie from our family and is…“heartless” and “despicable.”

[…] Mollie was nobody’s victim. Nor is she a pawn in others’ debate…. Please leave us out of your debate. Allow us to grieve in privacy and with dignity. At long last, show some decency. On behalf of my family and Mollie’s memory, I’m imploring you to stop.

Throughout this ordeal I’ve asked myself, “What would Mollie do?” As I write this, I am watching Sen. John McCain lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda…. Both Mollie and Senator McCain were good people….

The person who is accused of taking Mollie’s life is no more a reflection of the Hispanic community as white supremacists are of all white people. To suggest otherwise is a lie….

Rob Tibbetts, it is you who’s uttering a lie when you portray Americans who oppose illegal immigration as racists who are against all Hispanics. We don’t have problems with Hispanics and any people who immigrate to the U.S. legally. What part of the word “illegal” do you refuse to understand?

Then, without the courage of actually naming President Trump, Rob Tibbetts threw a hand grenade at the President, calling him hateful, inhumane, heartless, despicable, shameful, and a disgrace:

[T]o knowingly foment discord among races is a disgrace to our flag. It incites fear in innocent communities and lends legitimacy to the darkest, most hate-filled corners of the American soul. It is the opposite of leadership. It is the opposite of humanity. It is heartless. It is despicable. It is shameful.

Years ago, I had come to the distressing conclusion that the Left and the Right are irreconcilable in our beliefs, values, and worldviews. Rob Tibbetts is just more evidence that there are two Americas, divided by a gulf so broad and deep that it’s unbridgeable.

Attn: Useful Idiots! There's a website for you to pay reparations to blacks

The term “useful idiot” refers to people, typically liberals/progressives/socialists/communists, who support what they think is a worthy cause — the true agenda of which is concealed from them (thus, “idiot”) — and so end up being used by the puppeteers as propaganda tools (thus, “useful”) or worse, cannon fodder.
Are you a white useful idiot wracked with guilt over slavery that your distant ancestors might or might not have comitted? (Never mind the fact that:

  1. Slavery in America ended more than 150 years or 6 generations ago.
  2. Only 1.4% of Americans owned black slaves in the U.S., among whom were blacks.
  3. No white alive today had ever been a slave-owner (excepting S-M “masters” and “dominatrixes”).
  4. No black alive today had ever been a slave (unless they’re willing S-M slaves).
  5. Almost all descendants of American slaves are mixed with some European and Native American blood. According to a DNA study by researchers at Penn State University, the average Black American is 17-18% white, with blacks in Seattle-Tacoma being the most — 26.5% — white.)

If so, I have good news for you!
A very enterprising woman in Seattle has created a website for you to work off your irrational guilt (see nos. 1-5 above) by giving “reparations” to blacks.

The website Reparations was founded by by Seattle-based “conceptual artist” Natasha Marin who, from her pic, looks to be more white than the half-white Barack Obama.

Natasha MarinThe way the Reparations website works is as follows:

Blacks, referred to as “persons of color” (POC), post their requests on the website, including requests for someone to pay their rent and phone bills, free laptops, a Kindle EBook Reader, recording studio access, and just outright cash.
White “useful idiots” give “reparations” by answering the requests. When I went on the website, posted on its front page are “offerings” of psychological counseling, “spiritual guidance” via channeling, electrical/handyman services, personal finance or insurance assistance, coffee or dinner, and homework help or tutoring.

 Here are some examples:

POC 3: I need groceries.

White Person 3: “I’ll get them for you. PM me and I’ll send an Amazon Fresh or Safeway delivery. You just pick out what you want. I have a $200 limit.”

POC 4: I’m too upset to make dinner. I live in Seattle.

White Person 4: “Come over to my house for dinner, bring a friend if you like. PM me and I’ll send you the address, or can I order delivery to you? What kind of food do you like?”

POC 6: I want to scream and cuss at someone.

White Person 6: “I volunteer as tribute. How do we set this up?”

POC 7: I want to escape this cruel world in a *Specific Videogame* but can’t afford it on Steam right now. This is not a crisis, I just don’t trust people easily and want to see if this works.

White Person 7: Thank you for giving me the chance to do something concrete and relatively easy. I was quietly hating myself for doing nothing.

LGBT Useful Idiots

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

The traditional schools of Islamic law based on Quranic verses and hadith consider homosexual acts a punishable crime and a sin. […] Extreme prejudice remains, both socially and legally, in much of the Islamic world against people who engage in homosexual acts. In Afghanistan, Brunei, Iran, Mauritania, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, United Arab Emirates and Yemen, homosexual activity carries the death penalty. In others, such as Algeria, Maldives, Malaysia, Qatar, Somalia and Syria, it is illegal.

Useful Idiots for Islam

In political jargon, “useful idiot” is a term for people who, unwittingly, are propagandists for a cause the goals of which they are not fully aware, and who are used cynically by the leaders of the cause.
Fact #1: As a money-making operation, ISIS or Islamic State are kidnapping thousands of women and children from their homes and selling them into slavery. See, for example, this Dec. 27, 2015 (UK) Express article.
Fact #2: A Syrian operative admitted that more than 4,000 covert ISIS gunmen had been smuggled into western countries, hidden amongst “innocent” refugees. (Source: Express, Nov. 18, 2015)
And here are Islam’s useful idiots:

"Useful idiots" college professors discover the reality of Obamacare

The term “useful idiots” refers to people who serve as propagandists for a political cause whose goals they are not fully aware of, and who are used cynically by the leaders of the cause. The term originated in reference to sympathizers and fellow travelers of Soviet communism, who naïvely believed in the socialist ideological cause but were actually held in contempt and cynically used by the Communist Party of Soviet Union for subversive activities in their native Western countries.

Professors Suddenly Don’t Like ObamaCare Either

Investor’s Business Daily editorial of June 27, 2014
After years of singing the praises of universal health care, college professors are now shocked at how badly it has turned out — for them.
Adjunct professors are steamed at the way their employers are interpreting the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate, which forces them to cover full-time but not part-time workers. Typical of liberals, they blame their employers instead of the job-killing law they supported.

__________

Note: Unlike permanent “ladder” faculty, adjunct professors are hired on a year-by-year basis to teach full or part time, which means adjuncts have no job security.

__________

Starting Jan. 1, ObamaCare makes employers offer all full-time workers health insurance or pay a fine. In response, hundreds of colleges have simply cut instructors’ course loads to dodge coverage. Others are thinking about laying off untenured faculty by the thousands.
Take the University of North Carolina state system.
Faced with $47 million-a-year unfunded ObamaCare liability, the 17-campus system has asked the state for the OK to create its own health program. It says it can’t afford to pay its 8,586 non-permanent workers ObamaCare’s essential benefits package, at $5,400 a pop.
The jobs of graduate and teaching assistants, visiting professors and student employees are on the block. The other option is raising tuition, but President Obama is cracking down on colleges over student debt.
“This is an unfunded mandate that’s coming down on us,” UNC System COO Charlie Perusse complained. No kidding. Belatedly, academia is waking up to the business realities of ObamaCare.
Most colleges rely heavily on adjuncts, who’re hired on a contractual basis rather than being tenured in a permanent position. But ObamaCare removes that cost savings by forcing colleges to offer generous health-care benefits for them if they teach more than 29 hours a week.
Colorado Mountain College employs 600 adjuncts at a relative bargain. Though it has six times more adjuncts on staff than full-time professors, they absorb half the budget of full-timers. But now it also is having to cut adjuncts to avoid being hammered by ObamaCare.
The American Association of University Professors says it’s “dismayed” by the ObamaCare-tied cutbacks, calling them “reprehensible.” A Stark State College adjunct professor facing cuts at his Ohio institution whines that it should cover part-time workers, too. “It goes against the spirit of the law,” says the English prof.
Complained another adjunct: “The university canceled one of my courses. The reason was to avoid having to give me any benefits due to the Affordable Care Act.”
Welcome to the real world.
