Russians Din't Hak

Their assertions don’t hold water in the light of four facts:

1. Russia’s cyber warfare system is still mostly a "black hole" for the West. Although it is highly effective, very little is known about its methods of operation, organizational structures, scale of cooperation with counterparts in other countries, and the tools and resources at its disposal.
Had any branch of Russian intelligence been responsible for the hacking the Democratic party’s servers, no obvious signatures, such as the terms "Fancy Bear," and “Cozy Bear” that were discovered, would have been left behind for investigators to find. 

But although the current crisis may be glossed over in the interim to allow the convention and nomination to take its course, the Clinton campaign up until November is more than likely to be bedeviled by fresh e-mails leaked via WikiLeaks or other means that are just as embarrassing.
2. Intelligence organizations, including those of Russia, are usually fully focused on seeking security, strategic and economic data. It is hard to see Russian military intelligence, whose resources are stretched, expending  time and manpower on digging out the DMC;s views of Bernie Sanders’ religiosity.    

3. Then, too, CrowdStrike’s claim to have cracked the case in two hours is hardly credible. Getting to the bottom of an APT (Advanced Persistent Threat) calls for extra-powerful computers, working in conjunction with the internet service provider (ISP), and consuming weeks, if not months of analysis.

4.  Attributing the hacking attack to the Russians provided US agencies with a convenient reminder that the most notorious leaker of classified US documents, Edward Snowden, still lives safe from prosecution in Russian exile, and that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, remains in asylum at the Ecuadorean embassy in Britain.

As an aside, I asked a lefty friend whether the leaks had altered his vote.  His answer was, "Just wait until Trump gets the same treatment," (implying Trump hasn't been the target of every lefty news fabrication in the world). I answered, "You still don't get it?  If the information is verified that is exactly what I want, and that is why the GOP is also so afraid of Trump."

Flight 232


If you're a fan of Air Disasters ( I think it's most gripping show in town)  you'll have seen the United Airlines Flight 232 segment.  What particularly resonates with me is that cuzzin ricky had a friend and work-mate on the plane.  He was not one of the 185.   This Boing-Boing treatment is also pretty good.

NEWS: A Muslim Hates Trump

Rep. Keith Ellison: Trump ‘Worst Republican Nominee Since George Wallace’

Small Problem: Wallace Was a Democrat . . . Ruh-roh!
Small Problem#2: Ellison is a Muslim  . . . Ruh-roh!

If there's anyone more unreliable than a Democrat Pol, it's a DEM pol who's a Muslim. Sorry, that's just a fact in this nation at war.

Hey, we already knew that

What a shock. Judicial Watch discovered that top IRS officials, including Lois Lerner and Holly Paz, knew that the agency targeted conservative groups before they told Congress. Judicial Watch reported:
The FBI documents also reveal that IRS officials stated that the agency was targeting conservative groups because of their ideology and political affiliation in the summer of 2011. According to one senior tax law specialist, “The case seemed to be pulled because of the applicant’s political affiliation and screening is not supposed to occur that way … [Redacted] said he thought the cases were being pulled based upon political affiliations.” And IRS senior official Nancy Marks, appointed by [then-acting Commissioner Steven] Miller to conduct an internal investigation stated, “Cincinnati was categorizing cases based on name and ideology, not just activity.”
The FBI documents show the agents used a BOLO (Be On the Look Out) guides to look at “cases using the Tea Party term.” The agents interviewed an IRS Technical Advisor that reported to Lerner:
[Redacted] attended a meeting in the summer of 2011. She was not invited, but she was talking to LERNER about something else in the office when LERNER mentioned that it would be interesting for her to attend … Only people from Washington, D.C. were in the room, to include HOLLY PAZ … At the meeting, it was disclosed that one of the ways Cincinnati was looking for cases was using the “Tea Party” term. They were calling the body of cases involving political activity “Tea Party” cases. The concern was that the IRS had put a label on the cases that would be problematic. [FULL]

This will not be a prolem for a Trump administration.
