    Stars & Stripes ^ | 23 Mar 17 | THOMAS GIBBONS-NEFF
    The top U.S. general in Europe told lawmakers Thursday that Russia and the Taliban are growing increasingly close, suggesting that the Kremlin might even be supplying the insurgent group. Army Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti, who is also the Supreme Allied Commander of NATO, did not elaborate to the Senate Armed Services Committee on what type of equipment the Taliban might have received or when.

    Was there anyone more inclined to intone for guarding national security in the wake of the WikiLeaks revelations than Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta? Turns out the Democrat operative was neck-deep with the Russians he intoned against all along, through a Russian-financed company called Joule. In fact, the Russian oligarchs he's been consorting with are so dirty that even Putin is after them, blowing apart Podesta's dishonest narrative about "Russians hacked the election" and rival Donald Trump supposedly colluding with them. Some choice quotes from Podesta last December: "We now know that the CIA has determined Russia's interference in...

    It's not quite what Trump's tweet seemed to suggest, unless . . . Here’s a pattern you’ve probably noticed about the way the media deals with President Trump. When his literal words might be off target but his meaning can be justified, his literal words are all that matters. But when his literal words turn out to be accurate . . . well, that’s not what he meant! Did the Obama Administration wiretap Trump Tower? Or were there some other form of FISA surveillance that Trump clumsily described as a wiretap in a very specific building? We’ve already dealt with...

    During the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald J. Trump downplayed his business ties with Russia. And since taking office as president, he has been even more emphatic. “I can tell you, speaking for myself, I own nothing in Russia,” President Trump said at a news conference last month. “I have no loans in Russia. I don’t have any deals in Russia." But in the United States, members of the Russian elite have invested in Trump buildings.

    Democrat super-lobbyist Tony Podesta was paid $170,000 over a six-month period last year to represent Sberbank, Russia’s largest bank, seeking to end one of the Obama administration’s economic sanctions against that country, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned. Podesta, founder and chairman of the Podesta Group, is listed as a key lobbyist on behalf of Sberbank, according to Senate lobbying disclosure forms. His firm received more than $24 million in fees in 2016, much of it coming from foreign governments, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

    Newsninja2012 ^ | 6-17-16 | Stacy Rush
    A lone hacker, referring to himself as Guccifer 2.0, is claiming responsibility for hacking into the Democratic National Committee (DNC) servers.  While the DNC confirmed Tuesday its servers had indeed been breached, they and cyber security firm CrowdStrike indicated the Russian government was the likely culprit. The declaration by CrowdStrike, who is used to maintain the security of government servers, seems to have spurred the hacker known only as Guccifer 2.0 to reveal via the website, that he/she was the source of the hack and not the Russians. In a blog post dated June 15th, Guccifer 2.0 states: I’m very...

    A leading Democratic fundraiser and close political ally of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may have been a target of the alleged ring of Russian spies arrested yesterday by federal authorities. The president of the high-end tax accounting and financial advising firm Morea Financial Services confirmed earlier today that the alleged spy "Cynthia Murphy" was a longtime employee and a vice president at the company, which is located on lower Broadway in Manhattan. Federal and state campaign finance filings suggest that the little-known company manages the finances of one of New York's top Democratic financiers: Alan Patricof, a venture capital...

    All they have left is the world of imagination Rhode Island Democrat Senator, Sheldon Whitehouse, has no evidence that there was any election-year collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. None. We know this because, so far, such evidence has failed to materialize. That’s not a debatable point. Still, a lack of facts has never been enough to stop a Democrat who wants to insinuate foul play. If you can’t prove something happened, why not imagine it. Pretending that something untoward was happening is just as good as proving it, right?

For what is afoot is a loose but broad conspiracy to break and bring him down, abort his populist agenda, and overturn the results of the 2016 election. At its heart is the “deep state” — agents...

    The investigation of Russian interference in the US election could turn into a big headache for the Democrats. The phrase “Be careful what you ask for” comes to mind. For months before the presidential election, I explained why the Democrats were making a big mistake by picking Hillary Clinton as their candidate. And I correctly predicted that she would lose. The Democrats didn’t listen, and now their party is in shambles. They aren’t going to listen to me now either about the unintended consequences of an investigation of the Russians, but I’m going to explain anyway. One of the reasons...

    That supposed FBI investigation of collusion with the Russians? Never mind . . . They’re in retreat now. You may have missed it amid President Trump’s startling Saturday tweet storm, the recriminations over president-on-candidate spying, and the Jeff Sessions recusal — a whirlwind weekend. But while you weren’t looking, an elaborate narrative died. For months, the media-Democrat complex has peddled a storyline that the Putin regime in Russia hacked the U.S. presidential election. There is, of course, no evidence that the election was hacked in the sense that the actual voting process was compromised. Read more at:

Sentenced last night in New York, they gave their real Russian names, pleaded guilty, and were sentenced to time served — a few short days. Never has a spy swap been orchestrated so quickly. In the era of the Cold War, there were plenty of swaps. The most famous was that of KGB Colonel Rudolf Abel for the U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers in 1962. Abel was the name he adopted, when he lived in Greenwich Village and Brooklyn, and posed as an artist....

    One of Rush Limbaugh’s classic maxims is that when it comes to liberals’ demands for investigations, it’s not the nature of the evidence; it’s the seriousness of the charge that matters. Thomas Friedman provided a perfect illustration of Rush’s rule on today’s Meet the Press. Discussing the notion that the Trump campaign might have colluded with the Russians regarding the 2016 election, Friedman said “I agree: there is no evidence, which is why we need a special prosecutor or an independent commission to get to the bottom of it.” View the video here.

    Hillary Clinton, still sorting through the wreckage of her 2016 presidential campaign, recently had former aides on her campaign team meet with outside strategists and consultants to look at what went wrong. For months, Clinton and her top aides have blamed their devastating loss on FBI Director James Comey and Russia’s interference in the presidential election. While their outlook hasn’t changed, Clinton still wanted a thorough, detailed post-mortem of the campaign.

    The basic formula for every breaking Trump/Russia story is essentially as follows: 1. The New York Times or Washington Post releases an article that at first blush appears extremely damning. 2. Anti-Trump pundits and Democrats react reflexively to the news, express shrieking outrage, and proclaim that this finally proves untoward collusion between Trump and Russia — a smoking gun, at last. 3. Aggrieved former Clinton apparatchiks *connect the dots* in a manner eerily reminiscent of right-wing Glenn Beck-esque prognostication circa 2009. 4. Self-proclaimed legal experts rashly opine as to whether the new revelation entails some kind of criminally actionable offense. (Recall the...

Albert Dittrich is Jack Barsky in the eyes of the US government.

    Saddam Hussein moved his chemical weapons to Syria six weeks before the war started, Israel's top general during Operation Iraqi Freedom says. The assertion comes as President Bush said yesterday that much of the intelligence on Iraq's weapons of mass destruction was incorrect. The Israeli officer, Lieutenant General Moshe Yaalon, asserted that Saddam spirited his chemical weapons out of the country on the eve of the war. "He transferred the chemical agents from Iraq to Syria," General Yaalon told The New York Sun over dinner in New York on Tuesday night. "No one went to Syria to find it."

    ...It was also secretive even by traditional standards: Although Comey was photographed leaving the meeting, committee members wouldn’t admit that he’d been there. And it seemed as though the briefing was urgent, with senators delaying their departure during a weekend recess to hear what Comey had to say. The Senate Intel Committee considers all manner of intelligence matters so in theory the briefing could have been about anything. Most recently, though, the Committee’s been in the news because it’s leading the congressional investigation into Russian interference in last year’s presidential campaign. Three days ago, after Mike Flynn resigned, Mitch McConnell...
  • John Podesta’s Payoff for Helping Hillary Give American Military Technology to Russia’s Putin

    As part of just-inaugurated President Obama’s new foreign policy to improve relations between the United States and Russia, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met with Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in March 2009. Meeting in her hotel’s Salon Panorama in Geneva, she presented him with a small gift box containing a bright red button symbolizing the Obama administration’s desire to “reset” the relationship between the two governments. Thus began an effort to transfer American technology to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s own “Silicon Valley,” called Skolkovo. In a report released in late July by the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) entitled From...

    Russians are not only already here, but they have closed down the best of your country’s military bases starting with the Presidio. One of the most stomach-turning hypocrisies of the progressive left in their constant criticism of President Donald Trump for cozying up to Russian President Vladimir Putin is that it was the progressive left who laid out the welcome mat to the Russians in the first place.

    A senior Russian intelligence officer who was arrested on suspicion of treason in December has been charged with passing secrets to the CIA, sources told the Russian news agency Interfax on Tuesday. Sergei Mikhailov was the deputy head of the information security department of the FSB, Russia's national security service. He was arrested along with Dmitry Dokuchaev, a cybersecurity expert who worked as a hacker under the alias "Forb" before joining the FSB; and Ruslan Stoyanov, a key cybercrime investigator at the Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky. They were arrested shortly after the CIA concluded that Russian hackers, at the Kremlin's...

    The Russian hacks of the Democratic National Committee might have gone unnoticed if one of the two attacking groups hadn't made so much "noise," a security expert told the ShmooCon hacker conference here yesterday (Jan. 15). Because that group, dubbed Fancy Bear or APT 28, was so sloppy, it was caught within a few weeks, said Toni Gidwani, director of research operations at Arlingon, Virginia, cybersecurity firm ThreatConnect. The subsequent investigation led to the discovery of a year-old, continuing penetration of the DNC's servers by a rival Russian group, called Cozy Bear or APT 29, that had previously gone undetected....

    Godspeed the return of America for the necessary stabilization of a Free West The truth will always out. Now we know why even amid the indelible lies that followed Hillary Clinton throughout the 2016 presidential campaign she displayed that ever-ready smirky smile during each of the presidential debates. Clinton, who seemed to signal that she knew something the rest of us did not, came on like the smug cat that swallowed the cream, or so it so infuriatingly seemed.

    So Trump held a Presser yesterday. He covered a few topics: Russian hacking, Intelligence community leaks,  his time schedule to Build-the-Wall, the steps he’s taken to avert even an appearance of conflict of interest with his corporation. Butt the only thing anyone wanted to talk about was the completely fabricated yet salaciously entertaining Russian “Golden Shower” report.  That our Intelligence community saw fit to present the dossier last Friday to the president, the president-elect and the Congressional so-called Gang of Eight speaks more to the state of our Intelligence community than anything else.To say the “report” lacked veracity is rather...

    Russia says it tracked hijacked Arctic Sea all along, but questions grow over cargo Tony Halpin in Moscow Russia’s top general hinted today that the ship allegedly hijacked by pirates earlier this month may have been carrying a secret cargo, as it emerged that the country’s Navy tracked the vessel throughout its journey. President Medvedev sent the Russian Navy to find the Arctic Sea after it apparently disappeared while passing through the English Channel en route to Algeria from Finland. However, the Foreign Ministry in Moscow now says that Russian and international agencies had monitored the ship throughout its strange...
