The last ET related comments from the Clinton campaign team came from John Podesta on June 2 at the Code Conference
in Rancho Palos Verdes, a high end technology event with a $6500 fee for attendees. It was not a fund raiser. Since that event - nothing. There are several reasons for this lull:
- the last Democratic primary debate or forum was held on April 25 and no more are scheduled.
- Secretary Clinton "clinched" the Democratic nomination on June 6.
- Donald Trump, who clinched the Republican nomination on May 25 and began attacking Secretary Clinton immediately, was forced to step back and go into damage control due to various controversial statements.
- none of the television news hosts moderating the debates and forums asked Secretary Clinton a single question regarding the ET issue or the Rockefeller Initiative.
John Podesta's strategy is to put out a number of somewhat vague statements that demonstrate the Clinton campaign considers the ET issue to be a serious matter. This is to protect his candidate should the media finally bite down hard on the issue. But these statements are carefully crafted to avoid igniting a media frenzy.
However, if the political media choose to stay behind the truth embargo rope line - particularly the network news operations - he is prepared to coast all the way to the White House without saying anything more. Thus the silence since June 2.
But this is just the lull before the storm. The print media are not contained. Reporters are continuing to put questions to the Clinton campaign and directly to Podesta and getting no response. More articles are on the way. One or more television news venues could make a move at any time.
The journalistic equation under consideration is whether the convention delegates - particularly the super delegates - should be informed of the full story behind the Clinton/ET/Rockefeller Initiative connection before the convention nominating vote.
Meanwhile, a plethora of negative developments are stirring around Clinton's candidacy. Time is running out for Podesta's dual strategy. The very nature of candidate Clinton's chief flaws requires her to speak truth to power on the ET issue. The storm is coming and taking shelter behind a wall of no comments will no longer be an option.
