The Russian Election Hacking
Case Is Getting Murkier

Cybersecurity: President Obama´s decision to expel Russian diplomats for interfering with the U.S. election is starting to look like "Alice in Wonderland"-style justice: sentence first, verdict afterward. Even some liberals are starting to wonder if the evidence against Russia holds water. Late last week, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI issued a joint report that supposedly tied the Russian government into the release of hacked Democratic National Committee documents. But it didn´t provide any such evidence. Instead, it simply listed tools used to carry out the attack, and asserted that Russia must have been the ones who used them. Then it

Actually it is getting clearer- it didn´t happen.
McCain, Kiizziger, Obama etc "The Uniparty" are trying to cover up their tracks in the falsely named Arab Spring when our warmongers and Islamists sought to overturn legitimate Arab governments in favor of the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood that is infecting our own intelligence agencies.
The DNC and Podesta were merely exposed by Leaks for their vile selves in sabotaging Sander´s campaign and in their disdain for their own voters.
Brennan and Clapper have thoroughly politicized and polluted intelligence as to lose all credibility- like Obama and McCain who seem determined to start a war with Russia- why?

Why, #1? I can come up with two scenarios right off the top of my head and with only a third of a cup of coffee so far this morning...smidgen wants to dump a war in Trump´s lap as he waltzes out the door or he wants an excuse to declare martial law and stay in office. More likely the former - all part of his hissy fit as he becomes irrelevant.

Obama still manufacturing false narratives but the press is no longer buying them hook, line, and sinker. His entire presidency now looks about as useful as an eight-track tape player: quickly replaced by a superior technology but kept around for years because we´d paid a lot of money for it. Hooray for January 20th...it can´t come soon enough.

#1 may be on to something..maybe it is just projection on the part of the Dems. Freud talked about it, like when a person who isn´t particularly mentally "healthy", shall we say, accuses a faithful partner of infidelity because they are actually the unfaithful one.

Maybe everyone needs to start looking into the Dems hacking them.....

What´s clear is, this is an attempt by the losers (liberals) to delegitimize Trump and those that voted for him.

I see we´re all analyzing this more intelligently, on small quantities of caffeine, than our "intelligence" agencies and our Senators and Representatives. Time to send them all packing which is what I´m afraid they think Trump has in mind for them. Hence, they´d rather start a war with RUSSIA! to cover their corrupt, rotten tracks.

I hope Trump can drain the swamp. I´d settle for chasing out the roaches and cleaning up some cesspools.

This is a fake news story disseminated by the minions of Barack Hussein Obama to delegitimize the election of Donald Trump and diminish his stature as POTUS#45. It was devised in the evil and corrupt mind of CIA Director John Muhammad Brennan, and leaked, with the assistance and support of Clapper and DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson to the Washington Post -- the ego-bauble purchased for chump change by Jeff Bezos to pander to his pals, punish his opponents and above all, protect his obscene Amazon fortune. Under Bezos, the Washington Post is replacing the New York Slimes as the crown jewel of political propaganda and the Bellagio fountains of fake news. Just in the last few days, the Washington Post has been caught lying about Russian hacking of the US power grid -- the unraveling of the bigger lie about Trump being Putin´s puppet comes next and comes soon.

Obie has made it clear he intends to make Trump´s first 100 days and beyond as difficult as possible. Pure and simple. This so-called hacking incident is a fake. "Hacking" into Podie´s laptop was an inside job. With ´password´ as the password, my 9 year old grand daughter could have accessed Podie´s laptop.

Among the things we know with absolute certainty about this administration is that they are willing to prioritize and play domestic politics regardless of disastrous global consequences. It’s the “progressive” agenda first country be damned, American and foreign lives be damned. In the middle of a war they were parading around the mantra that our entry was based on “lies.” How is that not treason? Talk about a stolen election or one based on fraud, what about 2012? Could Oblame have possibly won if the truth regarding Benghazi was out there in the forefront? The pattern is undeniable.

Those who promote Liberty and Independence and Self-Reliance have no use for Lies and Tricks.

Both Marxism and Islam condone and recommend deciept and trickery.

Team Obama bragged long and loud about winning through a mastery of social media.

Now Trump is castigated for being a step ahead in that media.

We’re supposed to believe that our boy child president who has spent the past 7.95 years crawling about the world on his hands and knees apologizing to any Muslim despot willing to listen has suddenly grown a pair now that Russia has appointed Trump President? January 20th can not come soon enough. We have gone far too long without adult leadership.

Here´s where I stand - - - -

A woman I know - - well actually I don´t know her - - a friend of mine does - - she knows this guy who´s a friend of a Russian in Brooklyn - - and this guy says that the Russian guy calls his family back in Russia every week - - and that on one of those cals this Russian guy heard that someone whom his family knows heard that there may have been someone in the Kremlin - - or someone who knows someone in the Kremlin - - I forget which - - but anyway that guy knows a woman who heard that Putin wanted to hack Podesta.

I don´t know what you think - - but that´s enough evidence for me. The Russkies did it!

In other words, this is a typical dem political operation. It´s purely for the benefit of the dems and against the interests of the Country.

That´s OK. When the dems start trying to block Trump with a public media campaign we can point out that dems lied about the Russian "hacking" and they will do anything for political gain, even to the detriment of the Country. Hard core liberals won´t believe it or won´t care but moderates will.

The Poots didn´t do it. The McAfee guy and the other tech wizards say there is no proof, the report that came out just had stuff that was published before, the intel brief has been delayed. This is such baloney. The Russkis want to be friends.

And if Putin was so involved in his, how come the consulate cook was the one thrown out of the country and Putin himself (it went to the top, per Obama) got no sanctions?

At the moment, I don´t give a rats beeehind who hacked the DNC.

They operated on unsecured servers. Plain and simple - they got what they deserve.

As for the pathetic Podesta password, it´s almost as if he was hoping to be hacked - *wink* as in, accidentally on purpose? Stranger things have happend with this group.

Now that we have leared ´The Won´ has sent troops to the Russian border, I worry more about our POTUS looking to declare Martial Law, with yet another manufactured ´crisis.´

The Democrats are setting up a narrative. The Russians worked with Trump, hacked the election, and helped him win. Never mind proof. Soon we will see Democrats and their Republican allies demand Trump´s resignation or impeachment. Various Whitehouse agencies like the FBI, DHS, and others are on board. The media will breathlessly repeat over and over to sway opinion. Expelling Russian diplomats is part of it to make a ´show´. People better be smart, and not fall for this BS.

I just hope that career agents in the FBI and CIA (and whatever the other 15 intelligence agencies are) do not let these clowns take them down with them as they exit stage left. Competent management is on the way.

My tin foil hat theory?

The Chinese are the ones who really did hack Podesta but left behind false fingerprints that make Putin look bad and like he did it.

The idea is that they knew Obama would take the bait and run with the hook in his mouth. Why would the Chi-Coms bother to do this? Because they know their biggest fear is any kind of co-operation between Trump and Putin is bad for them and their interests. Namely, making them get off their man-made island in the south Pacific --- which Putin has already said doesn´t belong to them & Putin knows it is a threat to the Russian navy.

They used to call this agitprop - propaganda designed to agitate - in this case the public into hating the Russians instead of focusing on the Clinton crimes, on the DNC´s underhanded backstabbing of Sanders, and on Podesta´s vile management of Hillary´s campaign. Use of the term "hacking" is central to the propaganda. There was no hacking in connection with the release of DNC, Podesta, or Clinton emails. None.

Trade: Ford´s decision to build a factory in the U.S. instead of Mexico, saving 700 jobs, is a good thing. But is it because Ford fears what Donald Trump might do to it, or because it thinks the corporate environment will be so much better under Trump than under Obama? And, yes, the answer really matters. Ford´s move to invest $700 million in Michigan, creating about 700 new jobs here has created quite a political stir. The new plant, slated for Flat Rock, Mich., will make cutting-edge electric and self-driving cars, which Ford has said will likely outsell traditional cars

A Gallup poll seemed to put a damper on Donald Trump´s presidency before he´s even sworn in, with fewer than half the public saying he´s up to the job of being president. At least, that´s how the results are being reported. But a closer look at the data tells a much different story. The Gallup results got huge pickup in the press, with most running headlines along the lines of "Most Americans Don´t Think Donald Trump Can Handle Being President." Gallup asked a series of questions to gauge the public´s confidence in Trump´s ability to handle the economy, prevent major scandals, use military

Obama’s sanctions against Russia are simply a “gesture of despair” and could be a “poisoned gift” for the Trump administration, Aleksey Pushkov, Chairman of the Federation Council Mass Media Committee, told RT. The recent sanctions are an indication of the Obama Administration´s “incapacity to isolate Russia, to weaken Russia,” Pushkov said. The senator called the sanctions a measure of “vengeance and retaliation.” “Nothing actually worked out the way President Obama wanted it to work out,” he said, adding that the Obama administration wanted “to take revenge on Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin.” The new sanctions could be a problem

Early Thursday, President Obama´s State Department posted notice of new sanctions against Russia and the expulsion of 35 diplomats in retaliation for its claimed (yet still unsubstantiated) allegations of Russian hacking of the U.S. election. The New York Times intoned that it was the greatest mass spy expulsion since the Cold War. But the Kremlin response? Laughter. Monitoring the Russian press and the Kremlin´s Twitter feed, there hasn´t been anything so far in the way of a response, but two embassies have been having a field day.

Cyberwar: President Obama, living up to his promise, has hit Russia with sanctions for hacking the U.S. election. We´re all for protecting America´s information grid. But the timing and Obama´s reasoning for the actions raise serious questions about the real motivation. "All Americans should be alarmed by Russia´s actions," President Obama said from his vacation in Hawaii. "Such activities have consequences." He then announced sanctions, including giving 35 Russian intelligence officials 72 hours to leave the country. He also levied sanctions against a number of high officials of Russia´s two main spy services, the GRU and FSB, along with companies that work

She will also be involved in the network´s political and breaking news coverage. ´Megyn is an exceptional journalist and news anchor, who has had an extraordinary career,´ NBC Chairman Andrew Lack said of his high-profile hire. ´She’s demonstrated tremendous skill

(Snip)And yet, Kelly’s current halo does not necessarily mean she can also triumph over splintered broadcast-TV audiences and tired formats. Those are hurdles she and NBC will have to leap over in the months to come. NBC said it intends to place Kelly in a new Monday-through-Friday daytime hour set to launch sometime over the coming year.

With just a few weeks before President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, he’s going to take office in a historically weak position, according to a Gallup survey released Monday. Less than half of people in the U.S., 46 percent, said they’re confident in Mr. Trump’s ability to handle an international crisis and 47 percent said they’re confident in his ability to use military force wisely. The poll also found 44 percent said they are confident in his ability to prevent major scandals in his administration. At least 70 percent of people were confident in President Obama, George W.

Megyn Kelly’s decision to jump from Fox News to NBC resolves one of the last unanswered questions of the Roger Ailes scandal: Would she stay or would she go when her contract ended? With her last show set to air on Friday, Kelly’s departure raises a new series of questions about how transferrable her talents are and where Fox News is headed now that the network has lost its biggest star and one of its few hosts with serious mainstream credibility. For Kelly, the jump from a primetime perch at Fox to a multifaceted role at NBC carries a high degree
