  • CNN vs. Russia: The Battle We’ve All Been Waiting For

    The Daily Caller News Foundation ^ | 09/30/2017 | Will Ricciardella
    In a bizarre twist in the Russia-Trump collusion narrative, Russia’s media and communications regulator accused CNN International of violating Russian law, and CNN is fighting back. “CNN International routinely violates Russian legislation,” a spokesman for the Russian federal communications watchdog Roskomnadzor, Vadim Ampelonsky, said Friday, according to Russia Today. “Such breaches are common,” Ampelonsky said, but “it doesn’t mean that we should not react.” The Russian government did not specify exactly which laws it believed had been breached. Russia’s allegation may be a response to recent heat on the Russian government in the U.S. because of Russia’s efforts to influence...
  • If North Korea Fires an ICBM, the US Might Have to Shoot It Down Over Russia

    If North Korea Fires an ICBM, the US Might Have to Shoot It Down Over Russia Missile-defense physics may require interceptors to fly into ‘the teeth of the Russian early warning net.’ If Pyongyang fires a missile at the United States, its most-likely trajectory would take it over the North Pole. A U.S. attempt to shoot down that missile would probably occur within Russian radar space — and possibly over Russia itself. “It’s something we’re aware of,” Gen. Lori Robinson, who leads both U.S. Northern Command and the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, said Wednesday. “It’s something we...

    Google is conducting a broad internal investigation to determine whether Russian-linked entities used its ads or services to try to manipulate voters ahead of the U.S. election, according to a person familiar with the matter, a move that comes after Facebook and Twitter said Russian actors used their sites. Google, part of Alphabet, is also talking with congressional officials who are investigating Russian efforts to influence the election, and plans to share its findings with them once completed, this person said. Congressional leaders have scrutinized Facebook and Twitter this month for Russian activity on their sites—and criticized the tech companies...
  • Nolte: CNN Reports Russian Facebook Ads Promoted Black Lives Matter

    At long last, we appear to finally have some proof that the Russians interfered in American democracy. Before some of you get too excited, there is still zero proof of any collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign. There is still zero proof the Russians in any way “hacked the 2016 election.” There is still zero proof the Russians changed a single vote in 2016. According to CNN, though, what we do have proof of is that in late 2015 and early 2016, the Russians used Facebook ads to promote Black Lives Matter. Moreover, the report also says that...

    Russia. Russia. Russia. - Apologies - I thought this should be posted even though the audio/text does not seem to be online yet. This morning, NPR's Morning Edition said that Russia is trying to divide America, that they didn't care whether Hillary or Trump won the election so long as America ended up more divided. They then said that the NFL protest reaction is also driven by Twitter and that Russian bots are posting for both sides on Twitter to increase division in America. They seemed to be backing off a bit on the idea that "Russia" wanted Trump and...
  • Yet Another Major Russia Story Falls Apart. Is Skepticism Permissible Yet?

    The Intercept ^ | September 28, 2017 | Glenn Greenwald
    Last Friday, most major media outlets touted a major story about Russian attempts to hack into U.S. voting systems, based exclusively on claims made by the Department of Homeland Security. “Russians attempted to hack elections systems in 21 states in the run-up to last year’s presidential election, officials said Friday,” began the USA Today story, similar to how most other outlets presented this extraordinary claim. This official story was explosive for obvious reasons, and predictably triggered instant decrees – that of course went viral – declaring that the legitimacy of the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential election is now...

    Leah wrote earlier this week about the Washington Post’s trip up regarding their story about Barack Obama, Facebook, and Russia. The Post stepped on a rake when they reported that Obama reached out to Mark Zuckerberg about Russia, fake news, and taking the spread of this disinformation seriously during the 2016 election. The problem is that Russia was never mentioned: Facebook clarified that when the former president did reach out to the tech giant about political disinformation campaigns on the site during the 2016 election, he never called out Russia specifically, which makes their initial headline completely wrong. Axios reported...

    The former Green Party presidential candidate explained her presence at a dinner alongside Vladimir Putin and disgraced national security adviser Michael Flynn in Moscow. Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein denied a rumored connection to Russia and Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, brushing off a photo of her at dinner with Putin in 2015. A much-circulated photograph of Stein — criticized for acting as a spoiler to the Democrats during the 2016 election — showed Stein seated at a dinner table at a conference in Moscow, alongside Putin and fired national security adviser Michael Flynn, who left the White House after...

    Washington Examiner ^ | September 28
    Jeh Johnson told lawmakers Thursday he's unaware of any evidence showing cyberattacks affected voting in the 2016 presidential election. But, the former secretary of homeland security said it's a concerning possibility. "The integrity of our election outcomes on a national level dances on the head of a pin," he told an election security task force assembled by congressional Democrats. "If writers of the TV series ‘House of Cards' can figure that out, then a lot of other people can do the same."

    Our colleagues from East Pendulum are reporting that the Huangpu Shipyard of the Chinese naval group CSSC launched a Type 054A frigate for People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN or Chinese Navy) on September 22nd. This is the 14th frigate of this class (designated Jiangkai II-class by NATO) built in this shipyard, located near the city of Guangzhou in southern China, and the 28th overall in the series. The 27th Type 054A was launched less than 6 months ago, showing once again the fast pace of China's naval shipbuilding industry. Note that this new frigate is also the 3rd one to...

    At least one of the Facebook advertisements bought by the Russians during last year’s presidential campaign was targeted at voters in Baltimore and made reference to the Black Lives Matter movement, a source familiar with the ad said Wednesday. The ad — also aimed at users in Ferguson, Mo. — followed the 2015 rioting sparked by the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray. The ad appeared on the social media network sometime in late 2015 or early 2016.

    Pravda ^ | 09/20/2017 | Not Indicated
    Morgan Freeman loses his marbles. "We have been attacked. We are at war," Freeman says in the beginning of his speech. The actor describes Putin's biography and accuses him of attempts to undermine democracies around the world, including the US. In his speech, Morgan Freeman does not urge anyone to protect the borders of the USA. Instead, he talks about the need to destroy an aggressor, the aggression of which is clearly manifested, but we do not understand how. Afterwards, Freeman calls on his president to publicly acknowledge the fact of Russia's interference in the US presidential election.

    The Huffington Post ^ | September 22, 2017 | Ryan J. Reilly
    Attorney General Jeff Sessions has appointed as his chief of staff a former federal prosecutor who has written that the special counsel investigation into the Trump administration could be turning into a “witch hunt.” Matthew Whitaker, a former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Iowa during the George W. Bush administration, has been appointed as Sessions’ chief of staff, a Justice Department spokesman said Friday. Whitaker, a CNN legal commentator, wrote last month that President Donald Trump was “absolutely correct” when he said it was a “violation” for special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate the Trump family’s finances. “Mueller...

    White House adviser and President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner has used a private email account to communicate with White House staffers, his attorney confirmed to ABC News. "Mr. Kushner uses his White House email address to conduct White House business. Fewer than a hundred emails from January through August were either sent to or returned by Mr. Kushner to colleagues in the White House from his personal email account," Kushner attorney Abbe Lowell said in a statement. Lowell said the emails were "usually forwarded news articles or political commentary" and "most often occurred" when someone "initiated the exchange by...

    Russia Secret Agent Man' Barack Hussein Obama is hiding in plain sight. In fact he hid in plain sight right in the Oval Office for eight, long uninterrupted years In the era of “Fake News” unvarnished truth rarely, if ever, finds its way to the media-propagandized masses. In order to keep the masses in the dark, Fake News leans on a typical tactic of cultural Marxism—projection, falsely projecting Conservatives as the only purveyors of Fake News. It isn’t just that lies get halfway around the world before truth ever gets its pants on, it’s that social media is an unidentified...
