President Obama is ordering a report from his homeland security adviser, Lisa Monaco, on the numbers of electronic security breaches that took place during the 2016 presidential election process. Presumably they will be attempting to find out exactly where the Clinton email server leaks, the DNC email server leaks and the John Podesta email leaks originated from since, according to the story, they were all done with the malicious intention of effecting the outcome of the election.
Of course, the rabid Clintonites still can’t seem to understand that the vast majority of the people in this country did not want to vote for a corrupt war-criminal who was pretending (and doing a poor job of it mind you) to be a liberal and the emails didn’t matter in the slightest. They went along with the “it’s her turn” mantra and then all they could do in terms of an actual campaign is offer up one bit of identity politics-based fear-mongering after another thinking that would be enough to secure her the victory. They coupled that with endless slander from the corporate neoliberal MSM targeting Trump and his supporters like it was going out of style. That and the fact that Hillary was a woman was supposed to be all it took… but I guess not.
So now they take this new story to mean Obama is looking to prove once and for all the Russians rigged the election to steal victory from Killary and hand power to The Donald as was made clear in this article posted by the flagship fake news website for the New McCarthyite Dems, the Huffington Post:
“The U.S. intelligence community announced on Oct. 7 that it believes hackers supported by the Russian government were responsible for meddling in the election process, including by targeting the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton adviser John Podesta and other notable political figures, like former Secretary of State Colin Powell.
Congressional Democrats have ramped up their pressure for more details on Russian activities since President-elect Donald Trump, who has been notably friendly toward Russia, triumphed over Clinton on Nov. 8. Last month, Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee sent Obama a letter asking him to declassify information on the Russian interference. Earlier this week, Democrats on key House committees dealing with national security sent their own letter, asking that all members of Congress be informed of everything the intelligence community knows about Russian activity in 2016.” Huffington Post
The sum total of the evidence presented by the U.S. intelligence community (which is only comprised of the Department of Homeland Security, run by a guy who made it known in public he thought Trump’s policies would be dangerous for America) is as follows:
“The recent disclosures of alleged hacked e-mails on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts” Homeland Security Oct. 7th press release
That’s a full blown “nothing” in terms of evidence. “Consistent with”? “Russian-directed“? That’s not evidence of anything, ergo, it’s just as much of a “fake news” story as “pizzagate”. And in fact, there is a lot more evidence to suggest the owner of Comet Pizza has some serious pedo issues than there is that Vladamir Putin had anything at all to do with all those pre-election leaks.
What’s really telling is this line from the HuffPuff piece. See if you can figure out what it means:
“Congress will be briefed on the report and Obama’s team will determine how much to share with the public once they see the results, Monaco said..” Huffington Post
Now that is a very interesting statement, isn’t it? Obama investigating these serious breeches of security will only promise in the end to let the mob know whatever he deems fit to let us know.
Why is that important?
Because the damn leaks didn’t come from Russia with love or without it.
They came from either an insider who leaked the information in all cases or they came from someone in the intelligence community right here at home who hacked the systems involved and took the emails.
Of course the last possibility is, Big Business took em and gave em to Wikileaks et al. Or someone with access working for Big Business. God only knows how many individuals can get their hands on anything from anyone they want now that we’ve allowed them to privatize intelligence collection here in fascist Merika!.
If it turns out the NSA is behind all of this or some faction of the CIA who’s sick and tired of endless wars of aggression across the globe, you think for a minute President Peace Prize will tell us the truth about it? Of course not. That’s why he’s already letting us know we may never see the unredacted version of that report.
But that wont stop the corporate neoliberal Dems from doubling-down on their “the Russians Did It!” fake news story. In fact, is just adds fuel to their fire.
“After many briefings by our intelligence community, it is clear to me that the Russians hacked our democratic institutions and sought to interfere in our elections and sow discord,” Schiff said. “In this, tragically, they succeeded.”
Right. Hillary lost because of the Russians and all the discord here in the country is their fault as well.
I wonder if they will shut down congress when they get around to silencing all the fake news producing institutions. I wonder if they’ll shut down the Huffington Post. My guess is they wont. Just a guess though.
