WikiLeaks just released their newest batch of leaked emails, and they contain messages sent to and from Barack Obama prior to his presidential inauguration.
The most interesting of the emails in this batch involves a message from John Podesta to Obama regarding an invitation from President George W. Bush to then ‘President-Elect’. It alluded to a transition plan that was being worked on before the election took place.
According to the memo, Obama was already discussing his transition into office with the then-Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson. Here is a statement taken from a memo sent from the transition board to Barack Obama:
As you have observed in your interactions with Secretary Paulson, he is apparently eager to involve you and your transition team extensively in his policy choices following the election.
Immediately after the election Secretary Paulson and other members of the Administration will likely seek to involve you and your transition team in their ongoing policy responses to the financial and housing crises. We also expect relentless interest from the press and public about your intended level of engagement with the Administration on these matters during the transition.
Think about this for a second, Obama’s transition was already being discussed with certain members of the Bush administration. Also, judging by the email, it’s clear that it was known that Obama was going to be the president.
Another telling email, dated October 30, 2008, came from John Podesta to the then Senator Obama discussing an economic transition team, and why Obama needed to get the wheels in motion before his term begins.
Once again, how could they have known his term would even begin at all before the election took place?
RT news points to the fact that in another email, sent at 7:39 p.m. on election night in 2008 and written by John Podesta reads, “I don’t want to bug you today…The memo pasted below concerns a possible invitation to the G20 meeting on November 15.”
This email was sent approximately half an hour before Obama was officially announced as the next president of the United States.

It can be argued that this was all done while knowing behind the scenes that latest polls showed Obama was likely going to win, but given the amount we have learned over the past few years about how elections are rigged, perhaps this just adds to the evidence that they are just that -rigged.
The question we have to ask is how much has to surface for the masses to realize that US elections are not what they appear and that votes don’t matter? Even if you don’t believe they’re rigged, the super-delegate and electoral college process alone completely undermines democracy. Elections in the U.S. seem to be a form of entertainment, a mere distraction, more so than a real process of democracy and election.
The Hillary Clinton email leaks are strong enough for one to see that US politics is a cesspool of corruption.
I am reminded of a great quote from Theodor Rosevelt,
Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people.
From these great tasks both of the old parties have turned aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare, they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them impartially to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government, owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.
To destroy this invisible government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day. (source)
