    Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) described last weeks grand jury indictment of 12 Russian military intelligence operatives via allegations and information presented by Special Counsel Robert Muellers team as part of a game to get the public to see something that isnt there. Issa said, The premise of the Russian probe is all about a collusion for which theres not one piece of evidence after a year and a half, and the original investigation was tainted by Peter Strzok and his activities....... A lot of people missed it, but its not an accident that the downgrading of the offense...

    Speaking of treason, is it true that President Obama ordered his Intel and law enforcement agencies to stand down while Russia was actually in the act of meddling into our elections? And seeing that Hillary brought it up during the campaign, then she knew about it too. What did the president know and when did he know it? Why did they take no action at the time?
  • FBI gave heads-up to fraction of Russian hackers' US targets

    Associated Press / Yahoo ^ | November 26, 2017 | RAPHAEL SATTER, JEFF DONN and DESMOND BUTLER
    WASHINGTON (AP) The FBI failed to notify scores of U.S. officials that Russian hackers were trying to break into their personal Gmail accounts despite having evidence for at least a year that the targets were in the Kremlin's crosshairs, The Associated Press has found. Nearly 80 interviews with Americans targeted by Fancy Bear, a Russian government-aligned cyberespionage group, turned up only two cases in which the FBI had provided a heads-up. Even senior policymakers discovered they were targets only when the AP told them, a situation some described as bizarre and dispiriting. "It's utterly confounding," said Philip Reiner, a...
  • Brazile blasts 'incompetence' in response to email hack at Wasserman Schultz-led DNC

    11/07/2017 2:36:25 PM PST · by RoosterRedux · 21 replies ^ | Joseph Weber
    Donna Brazile's newly released 2016 campaign tell-all accuses the FBI and the Democratic National Committee she used to lead of a bungled response to the email hacks that threw the party into turmoil last summer. In Hacks, Brazile writes that she only learned of the breach in early June 2016 when then-DNC Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz informed her and other party officials that The Washington Post was set to publish a story on the matter. Brazile describes Wasserman Schultz' tone as "so casual." On June 14, Debbie invited the Democratic Party officers to a conference call to alert us...
  • The Russia Investigation: Someone Should Investigate the Investigators

    10/03/2017 10:34:48 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 12 replies ^ | October 3, 2017 | Thomas J. Farnan
    In 2010, pro-Russia candidate Viktor Yanukovych was elected president of Ukraine. Paul Manafort provided extensive consulting services for his campaign. Politico has called it a political love connection. Vladimir Putin was pleased. His strategic endgame has been to create a united Eurasia that is nationalistic, Christian, steeped in local culture and history, and that would compete with Europe for regional hegemony. This was an early inkling of the Zeitgeist that would later lead to Brexit and the election of Donald Trump. Manafort was one of its architects. Ukraines decision to align with Putin did not sit well with globalists, though....
  • Allegations of Foreign Election Tampering Have Always Rung Hollow

    09/21/2017 5:44:31 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 11 replies ^ | September 21, 2017 | Victor Davis Hanson
    On her current book tour, Hillary Clinton is still blaming the Russians (among others) for her unexpected defeat in last year's presidential election. She remains sold on a conspiracy theory that Donald Trump successfully colluded with Russian President Vladimir Putin to rig the election in Trump's favor. But allegations that a president won an election due to foreign collusion have been lodged by losers of elections throughout history. Some of the charges may have had a kernel of truth, but it has never been proven that foreign tampering changed the outcome of an election. In 2012, then-President Barack Obama...

    State election officials still don’t know which 21 of their jurisdictions Russian hackers targeted, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. Secretaries of state — who are the top election officials in 40 states — told TheDCNF they were shocked to learn of the Russian hacking when Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials first divulged it at a June 21, 2017, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing. “We can’t find any secretaries of state who say they have been told they are part of this list of ‘targeted’ states.” said a spokeswoman for the National Association of Secretaries of...

  • Despite hacking charges, U.S. tech industry fought to keep ties to Russia spy service

    New U.S. sanctions put in place by former President Barack Obama last December - part of a broad suite of actions taken in response to Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election - had made it a crime for American companies to have any business relationship with the FSB, or Federal Security Service. SNIP But the sanctions also threatened to imperil the Russian sales operations of Western tech companies. Under a little-understood arrangement, the FSB doubles as a regulator charged with approving the import to Russia of almost all technology that contains encryption, which is used in both sophisticated...

    Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the now-controversial chair of the House Intelligence Committee, is a bit different from what Washington expects in its politicians. He grew up in the agricultural cornucopia of the Central Valley of California -- fruits, vegetables, beef, dairy products and fibers -- the concrete expression of a myriad of hard-working ethnic groups. Their diverse ancestors fled poverty and occasional horrors in Armenia, Basque Country, Greece, Japan, Mexico, Portugal, the Punjab, Southeast Asia and the Oklahoma Dust Bowl. Central to this mix of immigrants, farmers and ranchers is a valley culture of pragmatism, bluntness and tenacity. Of all...

    Hillary Clinton may be the most tone-deaf politician in modern history. Repeatedly over the course of a 41-year career as a political wife, candidate and appointee, she's said and done things that alienated voters. Who can forget her acerbic comments during the 1992 presidential race? "I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas," she told one reporter on the campaign trail in describing her decision to continue her legal career while first lady of Arkansas. And then there was her response in defending her husband from allegations of extramarital affairs: "You know, I'm not sitting...

    Before I get to the meat of this post, we need to revisit a little history. The cyber security firm hired to inspect the DNC hack and determine who was responsible is a firm called Crowdstrike. Its conclusion that Russia was responsible was released last year, but several people began to call its analysis into question upon further inspection. Jeffrey Carr was one of the most prominent cynics, and as he noted in his December post, FBI/DHS Joint Analysis Report: A Fatally Flawed Effort:

    FRIEDMAN: I share Mikas real outrage on this issue. I dont care what he told Pence. We only care what he told Pence because Pence went out and basically mislead the public on Face the Nation. The issue is what did he tell Trump? Did he and Trump actually cook up this whole thing after the Russians did not respond harshly to the eviction of their spies and diplomats? Trump actually tweeted out some positive encouragement of this. Did the two of them cook this up all along? It gets, Joe, to two other issues. The first is we have...

    I propose to give you, my valued readers, the entirety of the Russian Hacks that gave Donald Trump an illegitimate victory. The Russians started out by financing Trump's Presidential campaign, realizing that a multi-billioniare would never have the resources to self-fund his own campaign.........Naughty Russians! The Russians decided to convince Hillary Clinton to engage in Pay-For-Play operations prior to her inevitable Presidential win in 2016.........BRILLIANT! The Russians influenced Hillary Clinton to take part in a scheme to sell arms to ISIS through Libya, and even helped her 'get rid of' Ambassador Chris Stevens.........Amazing skill, those Russians. The Russians then convinced...

In full alignment with President Obama, the ever faithful war monger Senator John McCain calls for a declaration of war against Russia. and if you disagree with him, well, youre a Hobbit, or a crazy or something. (Via Reuters) [] Republican John McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said on Friday that Russia must face a penalty for the cyber attacks and that is was possible to impose many sanctions. When you attack a country, its an act of war, McCain said in an interview with the Ukrainian TV channel 1+1 while on a...

    Theres no standing allegation by U.S. officials that the Russians (or anyone else) hacked into our elections system or altered vote counts. So what are the allegations and facts as we know them? The FBI and DHS released a brief joint report Thursday describing Russian Malicious Cyber Activity. It doesnt include forensic proof of Russian government involvement in hacking efforts, but the administration is rushing a detailed, classified report to be delivered, at President Obamas request, prior to President Trump taking office January 20. The joint report can be summarized this way: The U.S. believes two hacking groups tied to...
