While most fallout from the Podesta emails has been political, there are extraterrestrial implications for some of the e-mails released by whistleblower source WikiLeaks.
An email on behalf of Apollo astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta turned up in the recent data dumps. The email was sent by Rebecca Wright of the Institute of Exoconsciousness.

Mavrodi is reported to have designed a major pyramid scheme in Russia before its end came in 1997, which is believed to have conned an estimated $100 million out of its members.

Still, ZDI bought the bugs used by the hackers [...]
Jobs in a long slate of industries are vanishing into thin air due to upgrading artificial intelligence. Drones, robots, or “bots” as some prefer, are forcing humans to step aside. It might seem very tempting to see all daily tasks automated. And of course who doesn’t prefer to live more like the Jetsons and less like the Flintstones.
