Russia “Hacking” and the
Intel Credibility Gap

SharylAttkisson.com, by Sharyl Attkisson

Original Article

Posted By:Tianne, 1/6/2017 8:42:16 PM

At a hearing today, Rep. Joe Donnelly (D-Indiana) today said it was “astounding” that anyone would question the credibility of our intelligence agencies. That comment defies the factual record. It’s not that Americans don’t appreciate our many honest, hardworking intelligence professionals. But there are concrete examples of false information promulgated by some U.S.intelligence officials under Democrat and Republican administrations. That’s why it would be imprudent to blindly accept, without question, everything our intelligence officials say or, for that matter, everything any government claims. In fact, one need look no farther than a lead witness at today’s hearing on Russian election

Assange and Snowden exposed the lies of Obama Administration- Ben Rhoades bragged about deal with Iran and wrote FALSE Benghazi Talking points.
Clapper, Muslim Brennan and McCain/ Graham have NO Credibility - warmongers and/or Islamists.
Christian Russia is better Ally than terrorist supporting Wahhabi Saudis or Kerry´s Iranians against radical Islamist terrorists.

Does ANYBODY have any confidence in this report? It´s utter nonsense. It´s totally absurd with regard to motive. Why on Earth would the Russians want Trump (who has promised to build up our military) instead of Hillary (who hates the miliary and can be guaranteed to trash it)? It´s preposterous.

And what intelligence could possibly even confirm motive? Captured direct conversations? Oh puhlease. This is infantile.

Obama did more than meddle in Israel´s elections -- he sent operatives to Israel to actually torpedo Netanyahu´s election (likely revenge for negation of Obama´s "Palestinian Legacy"). China "hacked" into American computers stealing national security secrets including jet fighter designs and personnel databases...Obama did nothing And let´s not forget STUXNET. And what did the Wikileaks do? It revealed the TRUTH about democrats and Clinton that a liberal media would never report to the American people. Americans decided that even Wiki truths were preferable to the lie-a-day democrats Obama & Clin ton.

From the report;

We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election. Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump. We have high confidence in these judgments.

Let´s do the real one shall we? The one that is full of actual data, facts and OBSERVED truth okay? Here goes:

We assess the DNC, Barack Obama, John Podesta, Donna Brazille, the mainstream media, the Weekly Standard crowd, the GOP, and the US education system ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election. Obama´s and the DNC´s goals were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Donald Trump, and harm his electability and potential presidency. We further assess the mainstream media, the GOP, the US education system, the US entertainment industry, and Wall Street developed a clear preference for Secretary Clinton. We have overwhelming and unarguable data, seen by hundreds of millions of people, hours of video tape of illegal DNC operations where they use their own words as proof of breaking the law, not to mention factual evidence of illegal election tampering by the DNC, ALL COMPLETELY IGNORED BY THE MSM, GOP, DNC, AND ALL US INTELLIGENCE AND US LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES. We don´t need to fake and pretend we have high confidence in these judgments because the evidence speaks for itself.

The obambi government has just played their final card, that a highly classified document exists that contains the facts of Russian hacking but it´s too sensitive to make public. The entire claim reeks of propaganda but this claim is unprovable, therefore suspect of being just one more big lie. Given their record, anything they say should be considered a lie. The nature of Internet traffic and the near impossibility of tracing relayed traffic through random IP addresses makes it nearly impossible for even the NSA to trace without putting hundreds of people on it and gaining physical access to all of the servers involved. They are blowing smoke.

Trump should issue a challenge to the frumpy beest, let´s hold the election again and see how well you do THIS time.

As for the DNC and Podesta email treasure trove very few actually read then. I only found them because Conservative Treehouse posted them tireless. How many Americans actually read the Doug Band Teneo Memorandum? Very few. Yet it explained the impune criminal activity of Clinton Inc.

Although repeatedly questioned, my Russian friend simply refuses to disclose how Moscow got Clinton to quiver, stumble and fall flat on her face at that curbside incident which went viral last fall. And that "basket of deplorables" comment? Those Rooskies sure are crafty.

#12 "The obambi government has just played their final card, that a highly classified document exists that contains the facts of Russian hacking but it´s too sensitive to make public"
Yes, they are trying that, but it doesn´t play. The fact that the intel folks wouldn´t go before the congressional intel committees where that information could be presented says that they don´t have it. Instead, they go before McCain´s committee where classified information cannot be presented, but they can get their propaganda statements in. Also, because McCain supports their conclusions so they had a friendly audience.
The really sad thing is that I, like so many other Americans, believe Putin and Assange more than our President, our congress or our politicized intel people.

This whole thing is an exercise to promote the claim that the Russians helped Trump to win and he is therefore not legitimate, to be repeated every day for the next 4 (hopefully 8) years until people forget it was never proved. We already know that Podesta was duped by a phishing expedition but that won´t stop the Fake News being rammed down our throats.

The Black Messiah has a vested interest in discrediting Trump because he made the election about his legacy and all he got was a Bronx cheer.

More disgraceful are Loser McCain and Miss Lindsay who never miss an opportunity to stab fellow Republicans in the back. Holding hearings to try and give credibility to the lies is despicable. Time to put them both out to pasture, along with Turtleneck.

John McCain is increasingly mad as hell about President Trump. And on Friday, he went after Trump — hard. During a speech at the Munich Security Conference in Germany, the Republican senator from Arizona delivered a pointed and striking point-by-point takedown of Trump´s worldview and brand of nationalism. McCain didn´t mention Trump´s name once, but he didn´t have to. And even considering the two men´s up-and-down history and the terrible things Trump has said about McCain, it was a striking display from a senior leader of a party when it comes to a president of the same party. In his speech, McCain suggested

President Ronald Reagan said: "I didn´t leave the Democratic Party. The party left me." Actor and former president of the National Rifle Association Charlton Heston, who called himself a "Kennedy Democrat," switched to the Republican Party after the 1960s. On racial preferences, JFK, in 1963, said he opposed them: "I don´t think that is the generally held view, at least as I understand it, of the Negro community, that there is some compensation due for the lost years, particularly in the field of education.

A Politico profile of a new anti-Trump protest movement calling itself “Indivisible” reported that “conservatives” are “spreading unfounded rumors” that the group is “being driven by wealthy donors like George Soros.” Politico, however, seemingly failed to do even the most minimal research on the Indivisible leaders cited in the news outlet’s own profile. Some of those personalities are openly associated with groups financed by Soros. Politico further failed to note that the organizations cited in its article as helping to amplify Indivisible’s message are either financed directly by Soros or have close ties to groups funded by the billionaire. “Inside the protest movement

The fallout from the resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is not over. We have Russia, leaks, and palace intrigue about former Obama administration officials laying the foundation to topple Flynn, who was knows for being staunchly opposed to the Iran nuclear deal. Guy wrote a post about the allegations. Frankly, Flynn misled the vice president, which alone is an act that warrants him being shown the door. Multiple writers, namely Damon Linker at The Week and Eli Lake at Bloomberg have noted another sinister angle to this story, which is the number of leaks of highly sensitive information

Let´s compare what President Trump has accomplished since the inauguration (with that enormous crowd!) with what congressional Republicans have done. In the past three weeks, Trump has: staffed the White House, sent a dozen Cabinet nominees to the Senate, browbeat Boeing into cutting its price on a government contract, harangued American CEOs into keeping their plants in the United States, imposed a terrorist travel ban, met with foreign leaders and nominated a Supreme Court justice, among many other things. (And still our hero finds time to torment the media with his tweets!) What have congressional Republicans been doing? Scrapbooking? More than 90 percent of

Her relevant inquiries, focused on the compromises that need to be made on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian debate, as well as the future of the Iranian nuclear deal, also happened to be an "interesting" one (Trump´s own words.)

Take ten minutes and watch this profoundly creepy conversation between Tucker Carlson and a left-wing fascist named Yvette Felarca, who smirks with pride as she describes the riot she helped foment in order to "protect" her community from the threat of words. Carlson opens the segment by showing another clip of Felarca personally engaging in violence during an anti-fascist rally in California last year, then questions her about her big anti-speech "triumph" at Berkeley earlier this month. She calmly -- and almost sociopathically -- makes the case that speech she deems to be "fascist" could lead to "genocide," and "rape,"

While violence has always had a home on the political left, and while the left in America has been engaging in violence from at least the time of the late 1960s, forces on the thuggish left became emboldened during Obama’s tenure in the White House. Within the last year or so, they have become especially brash and merciless toward Trump supporters. This came to a head recently at Berkeley when “protesters” prevented provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos from delivering a planned speech. Mobs of anti-Milo and anti-Trump demonstrators were on the scene. No small number were self-described “anti-fascists” (or “antifa”) clad in black

Historians have ranked Barack Obama the 12th best president of all time, the highest rated since President Ronald Reagan, in a new C-SPAN survey released Friday. Less than a month after exiting the White House, Obama received high marks from presidential historians for his pursuit of "equal justice for all" and for his commanding "moral authority," ranking third and seventh among all former presidents in each respective category. The 44th president also cracked a top 10 ranking for his "economic management" and public persuasion.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tore into President Trump Friday by arguing that his nascent administration has no accomplishments compared to his predecessor. Pelosi noted Friday on the same day in 2009, former President Barack Obama had already signed into law his $800 billion economic stimulus bill. "A jobs bill in the first four weeks passed and signed by the president today eight years ago," she said during the Families USA Health Action Conference in Washington. "Imagine in four weeks what this president has done and here we are. There´s no jobs bill, there´s no infrastructure bill." Pelosi´s comments comes a

Senator John McCain has emerged as one of the leading Republican voices pushing back against President Trump, and he had some tough words in response to Trump’s tweet calling the media the “enemy” of the American people. In a preview of his Meet the Press interview tomorrow, McCain told Chuck Todd that the free press is very important to American democracy. “I hate the press. I hate you especially,” he joked. “But the fact is, we need you. We need a free press.” Without a free and adversarial press, McCain said, Americans would lose their liberties and “that’s how dictators

The left and its echo chamber are convinced they are taking out Trump. It´s their "narrative" and they actually believe their own PR. They don’t see how they have driven themselves over the edge of reason and can no longer convince others. The only people they have convinced are themselves -- of their own righteousness. And they actually believe they have succeeded. Again. This echo chamber once held great power.

But he seems to be in complete sync with his boss, President Trump.
