Intelligence heads aren’t intelligence personnel

January 11, 2017 by

There are many who will try to say President Elect trump is going against the intelligence community when he questions reports he’s given or things said in new articles.  Something to consider is that the leadership in the intelligence agencies are not the intelligence personnel.  They don’t always see eye to eye and I think you can guess who gets the last word.

Something to keep in mind when the press who often think Jason Bourne is realistic, tell you the intelligence community is against trump.  Some no doubt are, as I’ve found many of the analyst who never see the field tend to lean center left while field personnel tend to lean a bit right in my limited experience at least. 

Take if for what it’s worth.

Fake news is killing the left

January 11, 2017 by

But they are too invested to quit.

Unable to control themselves, the left continues to support President elect Trump by propagating fake news. Their credibility is gone. Buzzfeed and CNN have done more harm to the institution of the press than any other organization or person in recent history.

In a desperate attempt to smear the President Elect, Both organizations have pushed a report that doesn’t meet the basic qualifications of a “real” story. In the intelligence field single sourcing is dangerous, zero sourcing is death. And yet they have not been able to verify the allegations put forward in their latest reports and in fact others have been able to disprove aspects within hours of its release.

President Elect Trump is not like other targets and is pushing back. But more importantly other news organizations are seeing how this may affect them and don’t like it.

John McCain who passed this information on to the FBI.

Intelligence community- who have been used

 

4Chan claims this was a hoax.

In a story that is getting more surreal by the minute, a post on 4Chan now claims that the infamous "golden showers" scene in the unverified 35-page dossier, allegedly compiled by a British intelligence officer, was a hoax and fabricated by a member of the chatboard as "fanfiction", then sent to Rick Wilson, who proceeded to send it to the CIA, which then put it in their official classified intelligence report on the election.

Here is 4Chan’s explanation of how the story came to light:

>/pol/acks mailed fanfiction to anti-trump pundit Rick Wilson about trump making people piss on a bed obama slept in

>he thought it was real and gave it to the CIA

>the central intelligence agency of the united states of america put this in their official classified intelligence report on russian involvement in the election

>donald trump and obama have both read this pol/acks fanfiction

>the cia has concluded that the russian plans to blackmail trump with this story we made up

just let that sink in what we have become.

 

Did BuzzFeed Publish Donald Trump Fanfiction As Real News?

Hey BuzzFeed, this isn’t how WikiLeaks works.

According to Internet rumors, someone gave a Donald Trump report from November 1st, 2016 to Rick Wilson, an anti-Trump GOP consultant. He then passed it to Evan McMullin, an ex-intelligence official, who then passed it to Senator John McCain. McCain then gave it to US intelligence agencies who then leaked it to the mainstream media including CNN and BuzzFeed.

Although CNN did not publish the report as they were unable to verify the claims in the report, they still reported on the content of the report. The report includes wild allegations that the Russians were blackmailing President Elect Donald Trump with surveillance footage of him paying Russian sex workers to urinate on a bed President Obama once slept in.

Russian election influence report a joke

January 8, 2017 by

Please people download and read this report. It will have you shaking your head. This report is a joke. There is no there, there. It says basically Russian wants and is trying to influence our elections using propaganda, news outlets, and releasing of data collected to hurt targets. All a big, no shit! They’ve been doing that for like 70+ years now. Here is an example of the explosive (SARC) information released in this report.

ODNI Statement on Declassified Intelligence Community Assessment of Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent U.S. Elections

Public Disclosures of Russian-Collected Data. We assess with high confidence that the GRU used the Guccifer 2.0 persona, DCLeaks.com, and WikiLeaks to release US victim data obtained in cyber operations publicly and in exclusives to media outlets.

· Guccifer 2.0, who claimed to be an independent Romanian hacker, made multiple contradictory statements and false claims about his likely Russian identity throughout the election. Press reporting suggests more than one person claiming to be Guccifer 2.0 interacted with journalists.

· Content that we assess was taken from e-mail accounts targeted by the GRU in March 2016 appeared on DCLeaks.com starting in June. We assess with high confidence that the GRU relayed material it acquired from the DNC and senior Democratic officials to WikiLeaks. Moscow most likely chose WikiLeaks because of its self-proclaimed reputation for authenticity. Disclosures through WikiLeaks did not contain any evident forgeries.

· In early September, Putin said publicly it was important the DNC data was exposed to WikiLeaks, calling the search for the source of the leaks a distraction and denying Russian “state-level” involvement.

· The Kremlin’s principal international propaganda outlet RT (formerly Russia Today) has actively collaborated with WikiLeaks. RT’s editor-in-chief visited WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in August 2013, where they discussed renewing his broadcast contract with RT, according to Russian and Western media. Russian media subsequently announced that RT had become "the only Russian media company" to partner with WikiLeaks and had received access to "new leaks of secret information." RT routinely gives Assange sympathetic coverage and provides him a platform to denounce the United States. These election-related disclosures reflect a pattern of Russian intelligence using hacked information in targeted influence efforts against targets such as Olympic athletes and other foreign governments. Such efforts have included releasing or altering personal data, defacing websites, or releasing emails.

· A prominent target since the 2016 Summer Olympics has been the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), with leaks that we assess to have originated with the GRU and that have involved data on US athletes. Russia collected on some Republican-affiliated targets but did not conduct a comparable disclosure campaign.

This is the most damming parts. Is this enough for you? Read the whole report yourself. You’ll find out that Russia is active in Propaganda efforts (really?), that they have their own television network (RT, duh!), and that they engage in cyber espionage against US political organization (yes they are adversaries, oh and we do it too.)

In the very beginning they say that, “We assess Putin, his advisers, and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump over Secretary Clinton.” Yet give zero evidence of this actually being the case. If they were the force behind the release of the Podesta emails, could it be that these people, Podesta, Clinton and many other advisors proved the fitness to work in government by their complete incompetence and security avoidance? Perhaps Trump and the RNC simply weren’t using P@ssword as their passwords or didn’t send this information to a fake site which every private and airman is trained not to do.

There is also this tidbit in the report:

Russian Cyber Intrusions Into State and Local Electoral Boards. Russian intelligence accessed elements of multiple state or local electoral boards. Since early 2014, Russian intelligence has researched US electoral processes and related technology and equipment. · DHS assesses that the types of systems we observed Russian actors targeting or compromising are not involved in vote tallying.

And finally, weren’t the emails authentic? This would not make stealing them or releasing the ok but is a factor.

The narrative will be that it’s all in the classified version, well why put this weak ass report out then.  It has nothing but innuendos and knowledge that has been around for years.

Remember, nothing happened after the hacks by China, North Korea and others. 

OPM was one of the worst. 

The agency said hackers stole “sensitive information,” including addresses, health and financial history, and other private details, from 19.7 million people who had been subjected to a government background check, as well as 1.8 million others, including their spouses and friends. The theft was separate from, but related to, a breach revealed last month that compromised the personnel data of 4.2 million federal employees, officials said.

Both attacks are believed to have originated in China, although senior administration officials on Thursday declined to pinpoint a perpetrator, except to say that they had indications that the same actor carried out the two hacks.

Remember when we sent 25 diplomats back to China? Yeah, I don’t either.

Election wasn’t about Russian influence

January 5, 2017 by

And the democrats think the Russians influenced the election huh?

On Wednesday, a group of African-American teenagers tortured a white man with special needs and streamed the horrific acts on Facebook.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked if President Obama had any comment about the video.

“I haven’t spoken to the President about it, but I am confident he would be angered by the images that are depicted on that video,” Earnest told the reporter.

The reporter asked Earnest if this rose to the level of a hate crime.

“I think it’s too early to tell. I certainly don’t want to predict where the investigation will lead,” Earnest told the reporter. “I wouldn’t speculate at this point to what degree federal officials would get involved for considering those kinds of crimes.”

Really? 

CHICAGO (AP) — Hate crime, battery charges filed against four black suspects accused in beating of white man streamed live on Facebook.

Nunes V Ronda

December 31, 2016 by

If you haven’t seen the 48 seconds of Ronda Rousey getting pummeled check youtube. It’s everywhere. I watched live and was struck by just how totally unprepared Ronda was when she was hit. After a year in seclusion, one would have thought she would have had a better showing.

I don’t mean to beat up on Ronda, hell I’m a fan, but her confidence is gone. Why she went toe to toe with Amanda Nunes standing up is anyone’s guess. Granted she really didn’t get much of a chance to take it to the ground. Amanda did a great job.

clip_image002

Ronda looked to be in the best shape I’ve seen for a while now. But mentally, Ronda isn’t in the game anymore. It reminds me of Tiger Woods, unquestionably one of the best golfers ever, but after his marriage fell apart, he hasn’t been able to reach even close to his former capabilities.

Can she come back?  Sure if she humbles herself, takes a hard look at her skills and weaknesses.  But will she?

Folks, whether it’s sports or life in general, the game is 90% mental. Win that and the physical is easy. Don’t get me wrong, that metal game is a tough son of a B$%ch.  It’s often easier to strive for something than to retain it.

Amanda did a perfect job.  She new Ronda’s weakness and hammered it.  Nunes looks to be there for a while. 

Well no surprise, nobody stays on top forever. 

As to the UFC, I’m pretty much done with it. It’s not that there aren’t good fights and good fighters but the trash talking and promotion is disturbing. Plus all the damn rules stop a good street fighter from winning and Dana White just gets on my nerves.

Miss Sloane a dud

December 24, 2016 by

I didn’t see that coming (Sarc)

ms

So it looks like the highly touted anti-gun / anti-NRA movie is bombing badly at the box office.

Miss Sloane is a story of a DC lobbyist that takes on the “most powerful opponent of her career”, an obvious reference to the NRA.

So the elites in Hollywood somehow thought that a film where the hero is a lobbyist would make for a good movie. I suppose in progressive land this makes sense. However, in the really real world where the American public is growing tired of the self-righteous elites dictating our rights, it may not have been such a smart move.

The movie according to Box Office Mojo, had a total revenue for Miss Sloane at a paltry $3.188m. That’s after 4 weeks. Let’s compare to say, Bad Santa which has also been out for 4 weeks and has made over $17m in about 1/3 of the number of theaters.

I saw the preview for Miss Sloane while waiting to watch Arrival. My wife and I looked at each other and laughed, nope we wouldn’t be wasting money on that propaganda.

Jessica Chastain may be a good actress, I don’t know I haven’t seen anything she has been in. Zero Dark Thirty which would normally fall into my range of films, had some elements that didn’t meet the smell test so I may catch it on TV someday.

Bias alert: I am an NRA member….

In other news:

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Permits to carry concealed handguns are up in the second-most populated county in Colorado.

El Paso County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Natalie Sosa told The Gazette that officials noticed the spike after last year’s shooting on Halloween was followed by another on Black Friday.

The department issued 7,100 concealed carry permits through November this year, almost twice as many as it did in 2015.

Berlin Terrorist killed in Milan

December 23, 2016 by

Italian Police kill Tunisian terrorist

A wanted notice for a Tunisian suspect in the truck attack on a Christmas market in Berlin says the man should be considered armed and dangerous

…Berlin truck terrorist Anis Amri has been shot dead after a gunfight with police in Milan in the early hours of this morning.

The Tunisian pulled a gun from his backpack, screamed ‘Allahu Akbar’ and opened fire on two officers – hitting one in the shoulder – before being shot dead after getting off a train from France…

…The 24-year-old ISIS fanatic was stopped by a routine police patrol in the suburb of Sesto San Giovanni in the northern Italian city of Milan at about 3am local time.

Two officers asked him for ID documents, at which point Amri ‘immediately’ pulled a gun from his backpack and shouted ‘police b******s’ as he shot one in the shoulder.

A firefight ensued with Amri cowering behind a car as he tried to flee, but the suspect was shot and killed by the second officer – a trainee who had only been in the job a few months…

Good Job to Officers Chirstian Movio who was shot and Luca Scata. There solid police work stands out among the shoddy work of many others guided by political correctness.

clip_image004clip_image002

The mistakes made by the German and Italian authorities are probably too numerous to mention but here are just a couple of things to think about.

The German police somehow missed the attacker’s wallet which was left in the lorry for hours.

Anis Amri had been under surveillance for months prior

He had been arrested three times this year but never deported

Anis had fled Tunisia after a violent robbery that sentenced him to five years (absentia). He ran to Italy and filed for asylum. He claimed as many do that he was a minor. In Italy he was involved in a riot in the detention center where he was staying and jailed for four years. Italy failed to deport him twice, when he then fled to Germany.

…With nowhere to go after his release, ISIS recruiters offered him protection before convincing him to sneak into Germany as a Syrian refugee, a source within Tunisia’s anti-terror police revealed.

The source told MailOnline: ‘Whatever he decided to do in Germany was started while he was in Italy.

‘They gave him food and shelter and persuaded him to carry out a mission for them. It was in Italy that he was radicalised.

‘He entered Germany posing as a Syrian refugee. He was a vulnerable young man and they showed kindness to him.’…

According to reports he was under surveillance by intelligence services for months.

Germany denied refugee status but he was not detained or deported rather he was released pending deportation.

Why wasn’t he picked up and returned to the detention center? Why was he allowed to roam?

Europe doesn’t seem to be prepared for the reality of the world we live in today.

Germans better wake up soon.

clip_image002Attack in Berlin, Open air Christmas market

Multiple deaths and many injured.

Several people have been killed and more than 50 injured after a lorry ploughed through a crowd of shoppers at a busy Christmas market in Berlin. 

German police at the scene have indicated the incident is likely to be a terror attack.

 

Germans had better wake up soon. This will only continue.

Germany’s migrant rape crisis has now spread to cities and towns in all 16 of Germany’s federal states. Germany now finds itself in a vicious circle: most of the perpetrators are never found, and the few who are frequently receive lenient sentences. Only one in 10 rapes in Germany is reported and just 8% of rape trials result in convictions, according to Minister of Justice Heiko Maas.

Up to 90% of the sex crimes committed in Germany in 2014 do not appear in the official statistics, according to André Schulz, the head of the Association of Criminal Police.

"There are strict instructions from the top not to report offenses committed by refugees. It is extraordinary that certain offenders are deliberately NOT being reported about and the information is being classified as confidential." — High-ranking police official in Frankfurt, quoted in Bild.
