Let it be here known there is still no evidence of any kind Russian intelligence “hacked,” broke into, any computer network, Internet or county voting system, in any way that could have had any effect on our 2016 Presidential Election. “Zero, Zip, Nada!”
There is circumstantial evidence the Russians did not break into any such system as (1) voting machines are not on the Internet in any of the 3141 counties involved in our national election to preserve their integrity and vote safety. (2) Publication of John Podesta’s emails documenting Hillary’s people sabotaged Bernie Sander’s campaign would not effect Hillary’s national vote more than keep a few thousand voters from the polls nationally. (3) Russian Television, RT, has eight commentators and all were strongly promoting Mrs. Clinton while presenting Donald J. Trump as Satan incarnate. Logic dictates they would have all, or at least some fraction, of pro-Trump on-air talents if Moscow favored Mr. Trump and they had none!
The 17 involved agencies are: Air Force Intelligence, Army Intelligence, Central Intelligence Agency, Coast Guard Intelligence, Defense Intelligence Agency, Energy Department, Homeland Security Department, State Department, Treasury Department, Drug Enforcement Administration, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Marine Corps Intelligence, National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, National Reconnaissance Office, National Security Agency, Navy Intelligence and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
This list alone puts the lie to the Democrats! Why should the Air Force, Army, Navy, Marine Corps or Coast Guard Intelligence, Energy or Treasury Department or Geospatial Agency be sniffing 3141 counties conducting elections? It is illegal for all of them to be doing such “off assignment, political” work much less spy on our political parties. They would have to devote enormous amounts of staff and equipment time to monitoring the two campaigns and every bureau Director would be fired if he were found to have approved such a project! Without his approval it would not happen and none will be found.
The Republicans have promised to follow up on this and conduct an investigation. Let us here predict Democrats will raise objections screaming, “It costs too much!” “This is not the way our democracy works!” in spite of the fact we are not a “democracy.” Their name “Democratic” is as phony as their “…you can keep your doctor!” or “I ain’t no ways tired!” histrionics.
The 17 separate agencies did not independently declare Russia the perpetrator of the hacks. Trump spokesman Steven Cheung said this cuts against Clinton’s point, saying, “It is unlikely that all 16 of the agencies had looked independently at the Russian connection, which is what Clinton seemed to indicate.” (Cheung said 16 agencies because he left out the Office of the Director of National Intelligence from his count.)” It is amazing Politifact would authenticate Hillary’s claim and publish a disclaimer in the same piece! It makes no sense.
The CIA is legally restricted from executing any operations within the borders of the United States. It is not widely known, but the CIA works with numerous outside contractors, many of whom are career criminals, often in the drug trade. As a result they are in the drug trade as a cover and a source of money for their operations; lots of drug money. Millions if not billions. The CIA is probably the biggest drug running operation on the planet as a cover and recruitment operation as they make billions of Dollars doing it.
They may well be afraid Donald J. Trump will kill their operation in the name of sanity as we really do not need much of what they do now as we have been getting out the “nation building” and “promoting democracy” since we have realized it was all lies, like the Democratic Party itself. They have become international socialists and in competition with Russia for the largest socialist nation on the planet, as Hillary was fully intending to accomplish.
There has been speculation the CIA killed JFK as he objected to the drug trade and assassinations, in spite of authorizing a failed hit on Fidel Castro and a botched invasion on Cuba where Kennedy lost his nerve and would not let our forces soften the target beach with bombing. Plus he gave away our operations in Turkey to settle the Cuban fiasco with Nikita Krushev, all yanking lots of CIA chains. They are a government within our elected government.
Corrupt foreign leaders are often in the international unethical drug trade as being in that business is a doorway to the places the CIA operatives want to be. As these things happen, some of this spills over into the information and political manipulation business, thus the internal USA stricture. And, it is rigorously, enforced. This makes the DNC claim all that more ridiculous. There is still no evidence.
