    Reuters ^ | July 29th, 2016 | by Lidia Kelly
    Russia's intelligence service said on Saturday that the computer networks of 20 organizations, including state agencies and defense companies, have been infected with spyware in what it described as a targeted and coordinated attack. The Federal Security Service, the FSB, said the malware and the way the networks were infected were similar to those used in previous cases of cyber espionage found in Russia and other countries. The agency did not say who it suspected of being behind the attacks. "Information technology resources of government agencies, scientific and military institutions, defense industry companies and other entities involved in crucial infrastructure...
  • Audiences Puzzled by US Athletes Apparently Wearing Uniforms With Russian Flag (Olympics)

    The new US national Olympic team’s opening ceremony uniform design raised quite a few eyebrows around the world because some of its components bear a striking resemblance to the Russian flag. On July 29 Ralph Lauren and the United States Olympic Committee proudly unveiled the design of the US team’s 2016 Opening Ceremony uniforms. But while many people rushed to praise the stylish look of the new garments, others were quick to point out one very strange detail – the fact that the color pattern of athletes’ striped T-shirts sticking out of their buttoned-up blazers clearly resembles the Russian national...

    Hillary Clinton will order a "full review" of the United States' strategy on Syria as a "first key task" of her presidency, resetting the policy to emphasise the "murderous" nature of the Assad regime, foreign policy adviser with her campaign has said. <-SNIP-> Speaking on the sidelines of the Democratic National Convention, Mr Bash, who is advising the party's presidential nominee, said a Clinton administration would seek to bring "moral clarity" to the US strategy on the Syrian crises. <-SNIP-> Mr Bash describes a foreign policy more hawkish than that of the current administration.

    There have long been reports that the ongoing delays with the commissioning of the Admiral Gorshkov frigate have to do with defects in its air defense systems. These were thought to be primarily related to problems with integration of the Poliment Redut air defense missile system. The Poliment system was designed to be Russia’s answer to AEGIS, with four phased array antennas that are able to track 16 targets at the same time. The Redut system consists of four or eight vertical launch systems that launch three types of missiles. The 9M100 is the short-range missile, with a range of...

"Due to the postponement of the FGFA (Fifth-Generation Fighter Aircraft) joint program, the Indian Ministry of Defense (MoD) has apparently revealed its intention to upgrade Su-30MKI combat aircraft in order to turn the planes into the fifth-generation fighter jets.

    A US aircraft carrying out an observation flight over Russia was forced to make an emergency landing at Khabarovsk's airport due to an apparent landing gear malfunction. The aircraft took off from Ulan-Ude, a city to the east of Lake Baikal, and was heading to the Russian city of Yakutsk. However, one of the plane’s landing gears had apparently malfunctioned and failed to retract after takeoff, so the crew decided to make a forced landing in Khabarovsk, RIA Novosti reports. The Khabarovsk airport administration also confirmed that an aircraft with a stuck landing gear made an unscheduled landing there. "A...

The Democrats – after having seen the LA Times/USC daily tracking poll – are going into panic mode. They twisted Trump’s words and got their mouthpieces in the MSM to do the same, claiming that Trump had really encouraged Russia to hack into Clinton’s server and get the emails. And...

    Russia told the United States on Thursday to get to the bottom of a hacking scandal involving Democratic Party emails itself and rejected what Donald Trump said was a sarcastic suggestion that Moscow should dig up Hillary Clinton's "missing" emails. Trump, the Republican Party's presidential candidate, angered Democrats on Wednesday by inviting Russia to unearth tens of thousands of emails from rival Clinton's tenure as U.S. secretary of state. He spoke out after President Barack Obama said it was possible Russia might try to influence the Nov. 8 U.S. presidential election after a leak of Democratic National Committee emails that...

    Russia’s apparent election tampering — and Trump’s call for the Russians to expose Clinton’s deleted e-mails — shows that the insecurity of America’s data networks could undermine our ability to hold free and fair elections. But if the Russian president would go this far to pick our next president, why not take the direct approach? Why not tamper with the computers that manage the nation’s voting systems?

    Townhall.com ^ | July 28, 2016 | Victor Davis Hanson
    Seventy-five years ago, the world blew up in just six months. World War II ostensibly started two years earlier, when Germany invaded Poland. In truth, after the rapid German defeat of Poland in September 1939, the conflict was mostly confined to Western Europe for nearly the next two years. By summer of 1940, only Britain had survived Hitler's European victories. The dormant European war only went global on June 22, 1941, when Germany suddenly surprise-attacked the Soviet Union, its former partner. America and Asia were still not directly involved in the 1941 expansion of the war until the Japanese attacked...

Trump quickly pivoted to also discussing Clinton's private email-server controversy and the 30,000-plus emails the former Secretary of State...

    While all eyes are on Russia, I believe the recent Wikileak dump of DNC emails originated from Mossad (Israeli National Intelligence Agency). It was not that long ago when Obama sent a team of campaign hacks to Israel to topple Netanyahu in the Israeli elections. Payback is hell. Moreover, surely Israel prefers Trump instead of Clinton, who would represent Obama's third term and a contiuation of the anti Israeli foreign policy she established as Sec of State.

Trump held yet another press conference Wednesday morning in which he went after Clinton for not holding press conferences. Gold’s tone with...

Schweizer, after scouring once-classified KGB, East German Stasi and Soviet Communist Party files, discovered incontrovertible evidence that the Soviets not only played footsie with high-ranking Democrats, they also worked behind the scenes to influence American elections. Soviet diplomatic accounts and material from the archives show that in January 1984 former President Jimmy Carter dropped by Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin's residence for a private meeting.

And they say Putin sees Clinton as a forceful proponent of “regime change” policies that the Russian leader considers a grave threat to his own survival. “He was very upset [with Clinton] and...

    The Russians didn’t hack into Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server, as others have reported, according to a very reliable source of mine who has connections with US intelligence agencies. They didn’t have to. Clinton was so careless when using her BlackBerry that the Russians stole her password. All Russian President Vladimir Putin’s gang had to do was log into Clinton’s account and read whatever they wanted. They had to be laughing their butts off. So you can add the Russians to the list of people who know bad and personal things about Clinton that the Democrats will wish remain hidden....

    Moscow (AFP) - The Kremlin on Tuesday dismissed allegations that Russia was behind a hack of the Democratic National Committee's emails as absurd, mocking what it called obsessive references to Russia in the US presidential campaign. "This absurd news was immediately refuted by the family of the well-known presidential candidate," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists, referring to Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. "We are still seeing attempts to obsessively use the topic of Russia during the US electoral campaign," Peskov complained. "Unfortunately Russia is being used in the electoral campaign in the US. Unfortunately this traditional game is...

    This is REALLY interesting! The Hitlery camp is blaming Vladimir Putin of leaking the DNC emails which sent Debbie Wasserman Schultz into her current crash and burn. Hitlery Campaign Manager, Robby Mook, is claiming that Putin is leaking the emails in an effort to help Donald Trump win the election. Is that any worse than the DNC conspiring to screw Bernie Sanders out of the nomination? I think not, pardon my digression. Of course, Putin denies it, and the Trump campaign, in the person of Paul Manafort, labels the charge "absurd." But is it? There is no question that Putin...

    An outpost near the Jordanian border that is used by U.S. and British special forces was hit by the airstrikes last month. When Russian aircraft bombed a remote garrison in southeastern Syria last month, alarm bells sounded at the Pentagon and the Ministry of Defense in London. The Russians weren’t bombarding a run-of-the-mill rebel outpost, according to U.S. officials. Their target was a secret base of operations for elite American and British forces. In fact, a contingent of about 20 British special forces had pulled out of the garrison 24 hours earlier. British officials declined to comment. U.S. military and...

    full title.....Exclusive: Suspected Russian hack of DNC widens — includes personal email of staffer researching ManafortJust weeks after she started preparing opposition research files on Donald Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort last spring, Democratic National Committee consultant Alexandra Chalupa got an alarming message when she logged into her personal Yahoo email account. “Important action required,” read a pop-up box from a Yahoo security team that is informally known as “the Paranoids.” “We strongly suspect that your account has been the target of state-sponsored actors.” Chalupa — who had been drafting memos and writing emails about Manafort’s connection to pro-Russian political...
