The Mueller Report is Oppo Research

The Mueller Report is opposition research on steroids. It is like an expanded edition of the “Steele dossier” – a collection of falsehoods and trivialities, assembled in a way to hurt the President as much as possible. And even this collection of falsehoods falls short of creating mere suspicion of “collusion”!

A one sided focus on someone’s imperfections and an endless repetition thereof might create the illusion that its target is horrible. If Mueller had focused on Trump using a bathroom, he could have easily filled in those 200+ pages (Volume I), and Trump would look even worse than in the actual report. Especially if Mueller had written that the investigation identified no similar activities by Hillary Clinton — the comparison it made regarding alleged “connections” between the IRA and the Trump campaign (the Mueller Report, p. 33).

Notes on the Mueller Report

“In late July 2016, soon after WikiLeaks ‘s first release of stolen documents, a foreign
government contacted the FBI about a May 2016 encounter with Trump Campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos. Papadopoulos had suggested to a representative of that foreign government … That information prompted the FBI on July 31, 2016, to open an investigation into whether individuals associated with the Trump Campaign were coordinating with the Russian government in its interference activities.” (TMR, p. 1)

This is an admission that the FBI opened an investigation against the Trump campaign after a solicitation from a foreign government! This should be enough to charge Mueller, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, and other investiGATERs with aiding foreign governments to interfere in the US elections, espionage, and a dozen other crimes.

Missing from the Mueller Report

Missing from the Mueller Report became #1 bestseller in multiple categories on Amazon. The full Mueller report confirms and reinforces in the book, so far.

#1 Amazon Bestseller in Law Ethics and Professional ResponsibilityMy book Missing from the Mueller Report (Edition 1.5) is updated and available on Amazon in paperback and e-book formats. The most important part of the Mueller Report is not what it contains, but what it omits. The report has not been made public yet, but the conduct of the investigation combined with the AG summary provide enough information to answer this question. There has never been an investigation more absurd, corrupt, or harmful to the nation than that of Mueller’s against President Trump.

Partisanship in the Mueller Report

Missing from the Mueller Report book was written before the release of the full Mueller report, based on the conduct of the investigation and AG Barr’s summary. Now, the published Mueller report confirms the initial assessment: from the start, Robert Mueller accepted allegations made by the DNC and the Clinton campaign, Obama appointees in the intelligence and security agencies, and even foreign governments allied with them, as the truth. The Mueller investigation was one-sided, aimed at accusing the Trump campaign and clearing the DNC and spygate perpetrators. Failing to find any wrongdoing by Trump, it exonerated him. The most important quote from the report: “… the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its [imaginary] election interference activities.” Nevertheless, the one-sidedness is fully reflected in the report. It really sounds like written by an attorney for the Democratic party and its operatives in the government. Continue reading Partisanship in the Mueller Report

Kudos to TheForensicator

The latest analysis of the WikiLeaks DNC emails by TheForensicator tends to confirm the opinion that at least the emails, published by WikiLeaks in July 2016, were leaked by a DNC insider who was an unhappy Bernie supporter.

  • The emails were apparently extracted from a Microsoft Exchange email server on May 23-25. This was the time when Hillary’s victory became obvious, and the Bernie supporters were angry at the DNC for supposed cheating. (Sample media reporting: https://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-clinton-sanders-democrats-20160516-snap-story.html)
  • Only emails from seven accounts were extracted and transferred to WikiLeaks. Five out of seven were finance directors’. That suggests that the leaker was not only a DNC insider, but a high placed insider with confident knowledge of the DNC’s internal workings.

Byron York: From former Trump lawyer, candid talk about Mueller, …

… Trump’s longtime habit of operating on two levels. On the surface, Trump sets off controversies, often using Twitter to say something outrageous that sets the media agenda and leaves some commentators with their hair on fire. At the same time, below the surface, Trump is actually taking steps to get a particular job done.

… Behind the scenes, Trump was cooperating [with Mueller] and making sure his staff did the same. The Trump White House offered everyone (except, of course, the president himself) to be interviewed, and reams and reams of documents that other White Houses might have withheld on the grounds of executive or other privilege. So Trump simultaneously attacked and cooperated.

“Early on, when the president started teeing off on Mueller, Mueller indicated to me that he was worried that some people might not cooperate,” Dowd said. “I said, well we’ve encouraged everyone to cooperate, and if you want me to say something publicly about that, and the president, we’re happy to do it. And we did. We encouraged everyone who was asked to cooperate … Bob [Mueller] was satisfied with that. It never came up again.”

In the end, Dowd said, Mueller “acknowledged that all the [Trump connected] witnesses told the truth, all the documents were there, there was nothing missing, no documents destroyed.” The level of cooperation, Dowd said, was “truly remarkable,” all while the president distracted the world with his tweets.

This article was published in the Washington Examiner on  April 3. The Trump lawyer is John Dowd.  Funny, Mueller also had a conflict with Trump’s golf club over fees in Virginia in 2011.

FBI Hid Info from Trump in Defensive Briefings

If the FBI had suspected that certain Trump campaign associates were Russian agents, it had to tell him their names in defensive briefings that presidential candidates regularly received. The FBI and ODNI failed to tell Trump about any concerns regarding his campaign staffers, as noticed by Lindsey Graham.

Thus, either the FBI didn’t really suspect Trump campaign staffers and just used those names as an excuse to spy on Trump, or it intentionally kept Trump in the dark about suspected Russian spies nearby. Either way, the FBI, Brennan, and Clapper didn’t just spy on candidate Donald Trump but attempted to sabotage him and the whole Republican party in the elections.

Generic information like “potential interference by foreign actors, including Russia,” or an allegation that the “Russian government was trying to meddle in the election” (http://archive.is/UkuDq) cannot be considered a warning or notice. If defensive intelligence briefings have any purpose, this purpose is to let the candidate know about the specific threat.

Steele dossier floated in three versions

At least three versions of the “Steele dossier” were floating around Washington just before the elections:

  • what the FBI was receiving directly from Steele — a liar, a charlatan, and a contractor with Fusion GPS working for the DNC
  • a version introduced by Nellie (Fusion GPS) and Bruce Ohr (DOJ) to the FBI
  • a version that James A. Baker accepted from Mother Jones’ journalist David Corn

Karim Baratov and cyber incidents misattribution

This case of Karim Baratov is another refutation of the conspiracy theory of cyber incident attribution. This theory lamps together multiple network security breaches, performed by many unrelated individuals or small groups. Then it attributes these breaches to a small number of alleged government backed hacker groups. This theory was introduced by CrowdStrike, and promoted by CrowdStrike and FireEye (FEYE). One of apparently decent attribution criterias is use of the same network infrastructure — domain names and/or IP addresses — in multiple breaches. But even this criteria doesn’t work, because cyber criminals specialize and divide labor vertically. Spear-phishing incidents using the same deceptive domain and/or IP address are not necessarily connected to a single beneficiary entity. An owner of the domain name can steal passwords from many victims for many unrelated clients, knowing nothing about the clients, like this case.  Continue reading Karim Baratov and cyber incidents misattribution

Hillary Clinton does not know how to use a computer

“Garrett Graff: Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee in 2016, does not know how to use a desktop computer, according to multiple sources interviewed by the FBI.” an interview on This American Life (Nov 4, 2016)

Garrett Graff is an ordinary Hillary supporter and Trump hater (1, 2). He was a 2016 Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor of Vermont and a Politico editor.

Garrett Graff: But when we actually read through these documents, you can almost come away with a sense that that is actually why they did it, that Hillary seems to actually be a very persnickety technology user. She is not very comfortable with most technology, only liked to use a BlackBerry and, more specifically, only liked to use a specific type of increasingly older and more out-of-date BlackBerry.

DNC-2016: Total Ignorance of Computer Security

The Democratic Party is the party of obscurantism. But the following example of cyber-security ignorance is hilarious (WikiLeaks, http://archive.is/K3153):

“From: Palermo, Rachel
Sent: Friday, April 29, 2016 2:07 PM
To: Regional Press
Subject: Factivists was hacked. Here is our new password

We have been compromised! But it's all ok.

Here is our new password: HHQTevgHQ@z&8b6

It will now change every few weeks so prevent future issues. So as it is re-set, I will forward it along.”

This short fragment shows ignorance of basic computer security rules:

  1. Every user must have a separate account and password.
  2. Passwords are never emailed.
  3. If one decides to violate rules 1 and 2, at least don’t email the password to a list!

It is likely they were hacked many times in 2016, and most of these hacks were detected.

Skolkovo: Mueller, Hillary, and the Masters of the Universe – OMG!

Remember how Hillary supported Skolkovo, the technological espionage project of Russia? From the Skolkovo project website:

The innovative development of nuclear technologies is an essential condition for consolidating (and in some areas, achieving) a position of global technological leadership and maintaining Russia’s defense capability.”

“Developing the space sector … boosting living standards while helping to ensure national security …” (March 2015 – 1, 2)

That brings to mind the Uranium One, but this is another topic. Intel and Facebook heavily contributed to Skolkovo when Robert Mueller was their attorney (see his disclosure ). Intel and Microsoft were Skolkovo Foundation Partners. Google‘s Chairman Eric Schmidt became Skolkovo board member.

Google  and Facebook aided the Russian Federation with development of facial recognition and computer vision systems having military and intelligence applications, and might have even tested these systems on the Americans. The results are quite impressive. See VisionLabs. Twitter was there, too. Continue reading Skolkovo: Mueller, Hillary, and the Masters of the Universe – OMG!

Why would Putin meddled in the 2016 elections against Hillary Clinton? But that is off topic here. The NR article contains a link to the YouTube video of this interview (https://youtube.com/watch?v=zulHX5jO1yY), posted by veteran broadcaster Vladimir Pozner in 2014. Now the video is gone. Google has deleted the video and terminated Pozner’s account (now he has a new one without this interview). The last time the video’s page was saved on archive.org is October 2017, when it had ~75k views. In this case, Google was not fully successful in re-writing history. This interview fragment can be found on smaller channels, sometimes with comments like: “this is very hard to find, and I found it on a channel with only 333 subscribers! thanks! SUBBED!

It deleted a Fox News video in which Pete Hoekstra was debunking Clapper’s claptrap about the so-called Intelligence Community Assessment. This video was referred to in a Fox News opinion piece Was Friday’s declassified report claiming Russian hacking of the 2016 election rigged? by former CIA analyst Fred Fleitz (2017-01-08).

Breitbart: Google has agreed to delete links to websites banned in Russia

“The daily Vedomosti reported Thursday that Google has reached an agreement with the Russian state media oversight agency, Roskomnadzor, to regularly receive updated lists of banned sites and delete links to them upon review. The newspaper says Google has already removed about 70 percent of the banned websites from its search results.

The RIA Novosti news agency quoted Roskomnadzor as saying it has established a ‘constructive dialogue’ with Google.”

““This is our worst nightmare that someone with that kind of power would then decide to go after the President. I mean it’s a coup,” Dowd said. “That’s what it is an attempted coup by Comey and his crowd. And the evidence is all over there.

Climate of Fear in Cyber-Security

In Dec. 30, 2016 – Jan. 2, 2017, Mark Maunder, CEO of the security company Wordfence, was among many vocal critics of the wrong and incompetent FBI-DHS report GRIZZLY STEPPE, which purported to provide technical indications of “Russian hacking.” A month and a half later, he was afraid to criticize the new version of the same report, citing the political nature of this issue, ostensibly because he feared the repercussions of such criticisms. The danger was coming from Big Tech, which, triggered by the travel ban, joined the “resistance” and had zero tolerance for anybody and anything not opposing President Trump.

DNC is Involved in Possible Treason

(2019-01-24 update) Silicon Valley oligarchs might be not aware of specifics of the dirty social media operations they fund and organize (New Knowledge, fake Russian bots, fake conservatives etc.), but the general intent is undeniable. The same radical Netroots Nation conference,  funded by Facebook, Google, and radical “usual suspects,” also taught progressives trolling. From the panel’s description:

TROLLING FOR JUSTICE: HOW CHEEKY, PROVOCATIVE CAMPAIGNS CAN LEAD TO PROGRESSIVE VICTORIES

TROLLING. The panel will discuss trolling as a tactic to educate new audiences, hit hard at the opposition, and generate opportunities that convert people to action. This panel will focus on how bold, cheeky, and deliberately provocative campaigns can be leveraged to not just egg on the opposition, but tell a story that leads to progressive wins.

On that occasion, Facebook and Google also advanced their business interests through radical politics. Another panel was devoted to preserving Obamanet, which had granted them their current stranglehold over the internet: NET NEUTRALITY AND THE FIGHT TO REGAIN IT

Aided by WaPo, China Interfered in the 2016 Elections For Hillary Against Trump

Since June 2016, WaPo has been the main firebrand of the Trump-Russia and Russian election interference conspiracy theories. Multiple WaPo “reporters” were Democratic campaign operatives (Greg Sargent et al.). Unbelievably , this operation was financed by the same power that paid Robert Mueller and the law firm WilmerHale. This firm employed Robert Mueller and four (!) other lawyers he employed in the investigation of Trump (the “Russia investigation” pretext has just disappeared). From the Daily Caller (October 2015), China, Russia Pay Washington Post To Publish Their Propaganda:

“Chinese and Russian propaganda supplements are regularly included in The Washington Post, but the widely read newspaper won’t say how much money it gets on the deals.

China Watch – a China Daily publication – and Russia Beyond The Headlines – a Rossiyskaya Gazeta publication – have both appeared in the Post for years as paid advertising supplements. Both foreign periodicals are owned and operated by their respective governments.” Continue reading Aided by WaPo, China Interfered in the 2016 Elections For Hillary Against Trump

ObamaPutsch (Dec 2016 – Jan 2019). The Beginning.

Initially, the Obama administration and the DNC accepted the outcome of the 2016 national elections and prepared to transfer power to the elected President. A New Yorker article, promoting the Russian interference conspiracy theory, referred to the first week of December 2016 as the time “when Obama was [still] intent on an orderly transfer of power.” But something “interfered” with Obama’s intent on December 9.  He became the first president in more than 200 years to fail to properly transfer power to the elected President.

The following events might be critical to understanding what changed. It seems that elements of the Obama administration, together with foreign intelligence services, launched the putsch that continues today, openly spearheaded by Robert Mueller. The most likely cause was and still is Trump’s refusal to follow the western European Union countries on their suicidal path. This is the relevant timeline (it hints at the causation, which should be accepted cautiously; other events unknown to the author may have played a large role).  Continue reading ObamaPutsch (Dec 2016 – Jan 2019).

  • Developed and deployed an ad blocker, designed to selectively block ads on pro-Trump political websites. The targeted websites include Breitbart, American Thinker, and DailyCaller, and the scientific website WattsUpWithThat. The move was so insidious that even its victims missed the motive behind such an illogical and self-harming act by a company that depends on ads for almost all of its revenues.
  • Persecuted conservative employees for their political views, in violation of California laws, resulting in a chilling effect on the speech of other Google employees and the employees of its actual and potential partners and vendors.

Summary of the Brennan-Clapper Hoax

An article in the New Yorker, promoting the “Russian interference” conspiracy theory, referred to the first week of December 2016 as the time “when Obama was intent on an orderly transfer of power.” The real meaning of this phrase is that Obama has failed to orderly transfer power to the elected administration – for the first time in more than 200 years! On December 9, two day after Trump selected “climate denier” Scott Pruitt as the future EPA head, the Washington Post published a putative leak, falsely alleging that “Intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others” and other lies. It also falsely claimed “that’s the consensus view” of the Intelligence Community. On the same day, Obama ordered a “full review” of the alleged Russian hacking, to be led by James Clapper, and delivered before January the 20th. But the “full review” has been completed much faster, on January the 5th. Miraculously, it took only one day to prepare an unclassified version of it! Of course, miracles don’t happen. Brennan and Clapper made a forgery, and released it in the morning of January the 6th before certification of the Presidential election by Congress!  Continue reading Summary of the Brennan-Clapper Hoax

Wikipedia isn’t just a Crippled “Encyclopedia”: It’s Corrupt

2018-12-28 update: On the Thanksgiving Day, the Wikipedia page for Donald Trump was intermittently showing a penis in place of the President’s photo. Apple Siri displayed this picture when asked about the age of Donald Trump. Contrary to the MSM reports, that was neither a bug nor vandalism. This is how Wikipedia works. Leftist Wikipedia editors were permitted to switch the pictures. Apple, Google, and Facebook use Wikipedia as the main source of knowledge out of financial, economic, and anti-competitive motives. Wikipedia is choke full of such “mistakes.”

Pretty much everything people think they know about Wikipedia they heard from Wikipedia itself.  Wikipedia has become a cesspool of information that cannot be trusted as facts.  Amazingly, Wikipedia functions as a combination of tyranny, chaos, and opacity.  Anybody can write anything in it (chaos) as long as what’s written is in harmony with the far-left politics of its San Francisco management (tyranny).  But even in totalitarian countries the citizens know their rulers.  The portraits of Stalin and Mao hung in every public place of the countries they ruled.  This isn’t so in Wikipedia.  The highest Wikipedia hierarchs (Stewards and ArbCom members) are totally anonymous and hidden behind usernames like Ks0stm.  Wikipedia belongs to the Wikimedia Foundation.  The Wikimedia Foundation’s Board currently consists of eight members (1).  At least one of them (María Sefidari Huici, Spain) was appointed in open violation of the publicly posted bylaws.  The only publicly known person on the board is Jimmy Wales, the founder.  Other respected directors resigned or were pushed out years ago.  Only two among the seven board members are American citizens.  According to Wikipedia, it holds elections of its functionaries and power brokers but the election process is under control of a few (or even one) persons.  These kingmakers are also anonymous. Most of the popularity and income (in small donations) is derived by Wikipedia’s relations with Google, which gives Wikipedia abnormally high prominence in its organic search results.  However, the widely held opinion that Wikipedia is reliable on non-controversial subjects is wrong because Wikipedia regularly presents leftist opinions as non-controversial facts, making it hard to detect that a subject is in fact controversial.

Jeffrey Carr, the “Russian Hacking” Skeptic

Jeffrey Carr is a cyber-security expert, and one of few open skeptics of the narrative that the leaked DNC and/or DCCC internal documents came from hacking by Russia. Few remarkable quotes from his posts, mostly from 2016-2017.

Can Facts Slow The DNC Breach Runaway Train?

“Here’s my nightmare. Every time a claim of attribution is made — right or wrong — it becomes part of a permanent record; an un-verifiable provenance that is built upon by the next security researcher or startup who wants to grab a headline, and by the one after him, and the one after her. The most sensational of those claims are almost assured of international media attention, and if they align with U.S. policy interests, they rapidly move from unverified theory to fact.

Because each headline is informed by a report, and because indicators of compromise and other technical details are shared between vendors worldwide, any State or non-State actor in the world will soon have the ability to imitate an APT group with State attribution, launch an attack against another State, and generate sufficient harmful effects to trigger an international incident. All because some commercial cybersecurity companies are compelled to chase headlines with sensational claims of attribution that cannot be verified.”

Why aren’t there more skeptics in InfoSec?

“There’s a cost to being too critical. One infosec company threatened to sue a researcher if he didn’t make substantive changes to a published paper that was critical of their report. Many employers don’t allow their employees to express controversial opinions that could hurt the company’s business or reputation. And if the company or organization that you’re critical of has influential connections in Washington D.C., your professional reputation may suffer as well.”  Continue reading Jeffrey Carr, the “Russian Hacking” Skeptic
