    John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s former presidential campaign chairman, has claimed there was a “failing” by mainstream media to protect American democracy during the 2016 presidential election. “The fact that there was substantiation that the Russians had hacked my emails, the DNC emails, that Wikileaks was an instrument of an attempt by Vladimir Putin and the Russian Federation to undermine our democracy, that could have been reflected in the press and I don’t believe it was,” Podesta said in an interview with the BBC’s Evan Davis. “And I think that was actually a failing on behalf of the mainstream media and...

    Wednesday afternoon the story broke in Baton Rouge media that the Kenilworth Science & Technology School had been raided by the FBI. The FBI indicated that the raid, which evidently was conducted to gather material evidence in the form of documents and computers, was not a matter of public safety. As a result, it probably was not related to a report earlier this year that a teacher at the school was accused of having inappropriate pictures of children on his cell phone. Had those charges stuck, that would have been the second scandal of a sexual nature involving a Gulenist...

    Apple says that its preliminary assessments of the WikiLeaks documents released today indicate that the vulnerabilities it details for iPhone and Mac were fixed years ago. The documents, which originated with the CIA, detailed a variety of methods for compromising — breaking into — Apple devices if an agent was able to gain physical access to the device.The leaks were a part of the “Vault7″ documents, which WikiLeaks has been dribbling out. Some of the exploits, like NightSkies, could access personal info like call logs and SMS conversations — but only with physical access.Apple’s full statement is as follows We...

    WikiLeaks on Thursday released new Central Intelligence Agency documents, showing it developed malware to infect “factory fresh” iPhones, while the anti-secrecy organization claimed it has been bugging them since 2008. “While CIA assets are sometimes used to physically infect systems in the custody of a target,” said WikiLeaks in a statement, “it is likely that many CIA physical access attacks have infected the targeted organization’s supply chain including by interdicting mail orders and other shipments (opening, infecting, and resending) leaving the United States or otherwise.” The statement came before WikiLeaks released a new portion as part of the Vault 7...

Of course, one such company who is shying away from help is Google, but Assange says that may have something to do with government contracts they may have. I was just going to say that Google does work with the government program, DARPA, but actually I just found an article stating Google was pulling out of robotics, which is an area in which DARPA excels.

    Remember the “Russian Hacking” story that Hillary Clinton ran into the ground? The theme was Russia hacked the 2016 Election to help Donald Trump win and to hurt Hillary. With the news from WikiLeaks Vault 7, it makes the story less credible. The “Vault 7? leaks are believed to be authentic and reveal a few uncomfortable truths about the overreach of U.S. intelligence agencies. The leaks also provide insight into the sophisticated hacking methods which are used. Hacking is a very self serving method of probing a victim while stealing their personal identity and privacy.

It's only inside CIA," Morell said in an interview with "CBS This Morning" on Saturday. He argued that the data is on CIA's "secret network" that is not connected to other networks. "It's on CIA's top secret network, which is not connected to any other network. So, this has to be an inside job," he added.

    I happened to be visiting 4chan a few weeks out from the election. John Podesta's emails were slowly being leaked on Wikileaks. One dated 5-16-2015 had him sending someone named Eryn his Apple ID and password. 4channers realized he had not changed the password post hack. They quickly got into both his Twitter and Apple accounts. I specifically remember someone posted screen shot from the iPad contents.

    CIA documents published by WikiLeaks show that the CIA kept a database of “Japanese style faces” to utilize in online forums. The WikiLeaks data dump, which consists of 8,761 files and documents, was taken from a high-security isolated network situated inside the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. Within the data dump a folder called “Japanese Style Faces” can be found. These consist of ASCII expressions designed to represent faces and emotions, commonly used on internet message boards to denote a particular reaction. Some of the faces are listed below.

    Hillary Clinton told Goldman Sachs executives that Americans who want to limit immigration are “fundamentally un-American,” according to the leaked transcript of her private October 2013 speech made public by WikiLeaks. Clinton’s statement is significant because it suggests that, according to polling data, Clinton views an overwhelming majority of the American electorate to be “fundamentally un-American.” According to data from Pew Research Center, 83% of the American electorate would like to see immigration levels frozen or reduced. Clinton’s declaration describing those who want to limit immigration as “unAmerican” came in the context of her urging action on “immigration reform.” “Immigration...

The leaked documents also show that the CIA — in a move reminiscent of the Keystone Kops — “lost control of the majority of its hacking arsenal” allowing it to fall into the hands of hackers who have even less moral constraint than the CIA (if that were possible).

Out of 135,657,507 Americans voting, Donald Trump won the Presidency by 76,588 votes, or 0.056% of those voting. In Michigan, for example, out of 4,799,284 votes cast, a margin of victory of 9,528 represents 0.19% of the vote. To put that into context, that means that in a representative room full of 1,000 Michigan voters, 501 would have voted for Trump and 499 would have voted for Hillary Clinton. In other words, if only 2 out of 1,000 voters had liked...

    Wikileaks unveiled their largest vault of confidential CIA documents which they dubbed 'Vault 7'. One of the documents revealed a bombshell - the U.S. government is secretly paying to keep U.S. software such as iOS and Android unsafe. The U.S. government is paying to keep U.S. software unsafe. They are intentionally developing vulnerabilities instead of securing systems. This is criminal and reckless. This means iOS and Android can be hacked, spied on and/or infected with malware. Because of the software vulnerabilities, various messaging apps with encryption can also be accessed. #Vault 7 shows that Apple has been proven right. Governments...

    In a press release on Tuesday, Wikileaks declared it was releasing leaks on the Central Intelligence Agency.  The new leaks have been codenamed "Vault 7" by Wikileaks. The release comes as President Donald Trump has accused former usurper of the Oval Office Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah of wiretapping himself and his advisers.  We are also questioning whether former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Bill and Hillary Clinton are involved.  However, it seems the information contained in the releases will demonstrate how the CIA hacks into remote computer systems via malware, viruses, trojans and other software. Here's the press release...

DC Whispers reported on Sunday: Today (Sunday) Obama operatives were out in full force, as predicted, spinning deflection to a compliant Mainstream Media. The gist of this deflection...
