Meddling? Collusion? Brazile, Hillary, Rice, Obama Gave Russian Hackers Carte Blanche

The conveniently timed indictments of 12 more Russians by Deputy AG (or should we just face reality and ditch the word “deputy”) Rosenstein who will never see the inside of an American court room probably includes the Russian who “hacked” into John Podesta’s email account secured with the password “password”.

Rosenstein was pleased with himself no doubt to announce that 12 Russian spies were caught – er- spying, on President Obama’s watch, by the way, but neglected to include one small detail in his announcement – namely that DNC Chair Donna Brazile and most of the Obama hierarchy let them do it. As the Daily Caller reported:

 

Donna Brazile says in her new book the Democratic National Committee (DNC) went against professional advice and sat idly for a month while Russians stole data because primaries were still underway in a number of states.

In May, when CrowdStrike recommended that we take down our system and rebuild it, the DNC told them to wait a month, because the state primaries for the presidential election were still underway, and the party and the staff needed to be at their computers to manage these efforts,” Brazile wrote in her new book, “Hacks.”

For a whole month, CrowdStrike watched Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear operating. Cozy Bear was the hacking force that had been in the DNC system for nearly a year.”

Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear are cybersecurity firms that have reported ties with Russian hackers. Both groups are blamed for the hacks on the DNC in 2016. CrowdStrike is a private U.S. cybersecurity firm that oversaw the protection of the DNC’s servers.

The DNC never turned its servers over to the FBI although it is not clear what Obama and Comey’s FBI would have done with them. Instead Brazile et al simply stood by while the Russians emptied the computer jar of its cookies. Among stuff you couldn’t make up was election cheater Donna Brazile telling Martha Raddatz, who got choked up over Trump’s victory, on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday complaining that Russian hackers kept her and predecessor Debbie Wassermen-Shultz so busy that the DNC barely had time to put its fingers on the scale to tip the nomination to Bernie Sanders while feeding Hillary Clinton debate questions in advance. As ABC reported:

Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile said Russian hackers persisted in trying to break into the organization’s computers “daily, hourly” until after the election — contradicting President Obama’s assertion that the hacking stopped in September after he warned Russian President Vladimir Putin to “cut it out.”

“They came after us absolutely every day until the end of the election. They tried to hack into our system repeatedly,” Brazile told ABC’s Martha Raddatz in an exclusive interview on “This Week” Sunday….

“We were attacked by a foreign adversary, and I think it’s the responsibility of the government to help individual citizens — as well as institutions, nonprofits, corporations — to protect us,” she said….

“The emails were weaponized,” the Democratic chair said of the thousands of emails that were hacked from the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign staff and then released publicly. “Donald Trump used this information in ways to also sow division. I was very disappointed in his repeated usage some of the stolen information. He used it as if he received daily talking points.”

But they were your emails, Ms. Brazile. They were Hillary Clinton’s emails, at least the ones that Hillary didn’t delete using Bleach Bit while under subpoena. They were John Podesta’semails. They were evidence of your corruption and your lies to the American people. The Russians didn’t write them,

Indeed what the Democrats and Mueller’s team seem to be saying is the Russians interfered in the 2016 election by hacking into the emails of John Podesta and the DNC to reveal how they were interfering in the 2016 elections. And they forget how former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz tipped the scales for Hillary Clinton over a surging Bernie Sanders. She interfered in the 2016 election in ways Vladimir Putin couldn’t even dream of and arguably changed at least the Democratic Party results and campaign timeline.

So what the Democrats accused the Russians of doing, Debbie Wasserman Shultz’s DNC was actively doing. And considering what we have found out about the Pakistanis, not the Russians, that were brought in to run their IT operation, it makes sense as to why the DNC refused to turnover their servers to FBI forensic investigators. What else where they trying to hide:

Robert Mueller’s appointment as special counsel of the Russia election interference probe presents an opportunity for the FBI to inspect the Democratic Party computers that U.S. intelligence concluded were penetrated by Kremlin-directed hackers, cybersecurity analysts say.

The Democratic National Committee did not allow the FBI to physically inspect its machines, including servers. There is no public indication that any government agency has ever looked at the machines, prompting some former intelligence people to question the findings….

After former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told Congress that the DNC had refused his agency’s assistance, Mr. Trump sent out a tweet: “Why did Democratic National Committee turn down the DHS offer to protect against hacks (long prior to election). It’s all a big Dem HOAX!”

Maybe not a hoax, but certainly a cover-up which included Debbie Wassrrman Shultz’s curious relationship with Pakistani Imran Awan.

Awan was the top IT aide to Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The FBI reportedly “seized smashed computer hard drives” from his home. He was “arrested trying to flee to Pakistan after wiring almost $300,000 to the country,” according to The Daily Caller, which has owned the story because it does actual news reporting.

No, we didn’t ‘owe’ Iran that $1.7 billion ransom payment

Posted by Jimmy Minnish on May 11, 2018 under Links | Be the First to Comment

 

Amid all the fuss over President Obama’s “ransom” payment to Iran to free US hostages, less scrutinized is the president’s justification for airlifting cash to Tehran: that we owed them the money. It deserves more attention, because the administration has failed to make its case.

To review: On Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Obama administration not only paid $400 million in cash to Iran on Jan. 17, but $1.3 billion more in cash in two subsequent shipments — all in Swiss francs, euros and other currencies. The administration claims the payments were returning money Iran paid in 1979 under the Foreign Military Sales program for military equipment it ordered but did not receive, plus interest.

It’s a misdirection. And as Congress returns from its recess, it’s time to focus on two key questions the administration has been refusing to answer ever since the beginning of the year: How was the payment calculated, and was it really due?

In his Jan. 17 announcement, Obama cast the payment as a favorable settlement of Iran’s claim for its 1979 payment. He said he had potentially saved “billions of dollars” Iran could have pursued at the Iran-US Claims Tribunal at The Hague. But the administration has repeatedly refused to answer questions about the merits of the claim or the amount of the payment.

Not for lack of trying on the part of Congress.

On Feb. 3, Rep. Edward J. Royce (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, requested “all legal analyses . . . evaluating the likelihood of Iran prevailing in this dispute” and a “detailed explanation of how the interest payment to Iran of $1.3 billion was calculated.”

Six weeks later, Assistant Secretary of State for Legislative Affairs Julia Frifield responded that the United States “could well have faced significant [additional] exposure in the billions of dollars,” because “Iran was of course seeking very high rates of interest,” and “we are confident that this was a good settlement for the American taxpayer.”

But she provided neither a legal analysis of the claim nor a calculation of the interest paid. Read more of this article »

WikiLeaks: Conservative Pope Benedict Was Forced To Resign By ‘Deep State’

WikiLeaks emails reveal Conservative Pope Benedict was forced to resign by Deep State operatives
George Soros, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton orchestrated a coup in the Vatican to overthrow conservative Pope Benedict in February 2013, according to WikiLeaks emails. 

Pope Benedict became the first pope to resign since Pope Gregory XII in 1415, and the first one to do so on his own initiative since Pope Celestine V in 1294.

Soros, Obama and Clinton used the United States’ diplomatic machinery, political muscle, and financial power to coerce, bribe and blackmail “regime change” in the Roman Catholic Church in order to replace the conservative Benedict with the current Pope Francis – who has since become an unlikely mouthpiece for the international left, stunning Catholics around the world.

 Now the group of Catholic leaders have sent a letter to President Trump urging him to launch an official investigation into the activities of George Soros, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton (and others) who they allege were involved in orchestrating Catholic Spring that resulted in their goal of “regime change” in the Vatican.
