September 5, 2016 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – Building on previous coverage [see, Marxist Street Thugs Telegraphing Obama Election Putsch? , Obama’s Plan to Steal the Election,"Democracy Spring" Profiles: 99 Rise and The Fire This Summer - Revolution in America, PipeLineNews.org] we need to address a disturbing report appearing in today’s - September 5, 2016 - edition of the WashPost.
This feature piece suggests that there is an active Russian plot to hack the upcoming election to affect its outcome, the presumption here being that Putin is acting as Trump’s agent, a contention so preposterous, only the brain-dead would even consider it [see, Dana Priest, Ellen Nakashima and Tom Hamburger, U.S. investigating potential covert Russian plan to disrupt November elections ].
Regarding the lack of “meat” in the article; after a ponderous lead in, making it appear certain that the Russians are going to hack Trump into the Oval Office, comes the money quote, attributed to an “unnamed official,” stating that there is indeed not a shred of evidence backing up the absurd false claim which the Post is now gleefully spreading – of note the Fox News drones have picked the item up and are pushing it hard, indicative of a Pravda-ized American media:
“The official cautioned that the intelligence community is not saying it has “definitive proof” of such tampering, or any Russian plans to do so. “But even the hint of something impacting the security of our election system would be of significant concern,” the official said. “It’s the key to our democracy, that people have confidence in the election system.”
If there were such a threat [there isn’t] putting James Clapper in charge of “preventing” it is ludicrous, he being amongst the most foolish people in an already foolish [but extraordinarily dangerous] administration.
What is so deeply troubling is the quickly aligning planets on this matter, entirely too much is going down at the same time for worries about Obama hijacking the November election to be dismissed.
Complicating matters greatly as far as Team O’s “credibility” regarding national security issues is the fact the DHS’ Jeh Johnson has just concluded a speech to the American HAMAS/Muslim Brotherhood front group, the Islamic Society of North America …yes you read that correctly.
The mere presence of DHS’ top official at this event would in a sane world have already resulted in his ouster…along with those who approved the appearance, meaning the president and his national security team.
So we have more than rumblings coming from an emboldened administration that it is poised to do whatever it takes to assure a Clinton victory in the fall and we now have the U.S. media elite - the Post and the New York Times - both feverishly throwing everything they can at the wall to see what might stick to advance the ridiculous “Russian hack” meme.
“[re Obama’s meeting with Vlad Putin]…There was no shortage of thorny subjects. The president said they had discussed computer security, though he declined to say whether he had brought up allegations that Russia breached the computer systems of the Democratic National Committee. “We’ve had trouble with cyber intrusions from Russia in the past,” he said. “We’re moving into a new era.” [see, Mark Landler, ‘Gaps in Trust’ With Russia Bar a Syrian Truce, Obama Says , New York Times]
Yeah, we know, it’s really hard to imagine “gaps” in trust between the U.S. and Russia given Obama’s full court press alleging that this same Mr. Putin is scheming to steal the election.
We believe that chances are high that there is indeed a “plot” to influence the November results, but in what is a classic case of projection, the finger should be pointing to Obama as team leader of the effort, since he has the determination and the technical infrastructure [NSA and the rest of the U.S. intel community] to do exactly what he is accusing Putin of planning.
Fwiw, the idea of Russia taking on the U.S. in this manner is plainly stupid on its face, especially right now. The country is an economic basket case with a GDP equal to that of Italy, hardly a bastion of economic strength. Moreover he has 100k troops poised on the border with Ukraine, is up to his neck in Middle East intrigue and daily tries to manage internal schisms – a high wire balancing act, sans net - among the country’s blindingly complex demographic tensions.
Folks, Putin’s plate is rather full at the moment…
With this matter having become a subtext in the campaign we will be devoting much more space to covering developments as they roll out, which we expect in short order.
