“On February 4th, NBC News ran a story claiming that if you bring your mobile phone or laptop to the Sochi Olympics, it’ll immediately be hacked the moment you turn it on. The story was fabricated. The technical details relate to going to the Olympics in cyberspace (visiting websites), not going to there in person and using their local WiFi.”
“By the way, the easy way to figure out where journalists commit fraud is by watching for ‘passive voice’. Journalists normally avoid passive voice, preferring stronger language. But, when they need to hide things, they passive voice to cover up details.”
This advice seems obsolete now. Just watch their lips. When the lips are moving, the MSM journalist is lying.
The “assessment” that the Russian government hacked the DNC and leaked its emails was wrong. It’s almost impossible to attribute a network breach to a sophisticated hackers group.
When #CrowdStrike and FireEye started making the fraudulent attribution on cyber security events, many other companies followed. The Obama regime has corrupted and dumbed down the DHS, DNI, and FBI. They bought this fraud, and then added some.
In 2016, Hillary and the DNC were deceived by CrowdStrike into believing that Russia was behind the leaks of their emails that shouldn’t have been written in the first place. Together with Obama they forced that deception on the FBI and intelligence. Then they blamed Russia for their election defeat!
Most successful network security breaches are conducted by criminal hackers, many of whom are based or originate from Russia and Eastern Europe. Most unsuccessful attempts are conducted by amateurs. Organizations should protect their networks, rather than blame nation states.

Update: Steele might have learnt what the DNC wanted him to write about Trump directly from the DNC, rather than indirectly through MSM. DOJ official Bruce Ohr reportedly communicated with Steele in the time when his wife Nellie Ohr worked for Fusion GPS that hired and worked with Steele.
The leaked “opposition research” (mostly smear) on Trump consisted of 230 pages. Only one short paragraph was devoted to allegations about Trump’s relations and attitudes towards Russia. Thus, neither the DNC nor Hillary campaign believed around May 2016 that there was even a small impropriety in Trump’s connections with Russia. The opposition research file was apparently dated December 2015, but the DNC allowed it to leak between late April to early June of 2016 (likely on June 12-14), then advertised it in the WaPo article on June 14, 2016.
The liberal media attitude toward Putin changed from lukewarm to hostile almost overnight between July 16 and July 21, simultaneously with the creation and adoption of the Trump-Putin conspiracy theory as a major part of the Democratic Party line.

Even the New York Times admitted that Obama holdovers had committed crimes, probably including espionage, sedition, sabotage, obstruction of justice, and/or subornation of perjury in the transitional period. From the NYT March 1, 2017:
As Inauguration Day approached, Obama White House officials grew convinced that the intelligence was damning and that they needed to ensure that as many people as possible inside government could see it, even if people without security clearances could not. Some officials began asking specific questions at intelligence briefings, knowing the answers would be archived and could be easily unearthed by investigators — including the Senate Intelligence Committee, which in early January announced an inquiry into Russian efforts to influence the election.
At intelligence agencies, there was a push to process as much raw intelligence as possible into analyses, and to keep the reports at a relatively low classification level to ensure as wide a readership as possible across the government — and, in some cases, among European allies. Continue reading Crimes of DNC Loyalists in DOJ and Intelligence
The corrupt academy developed a whole cottage industry devoted to conspiracy theories about Russian influence on elections in the U.S. and worldwide.
For example, the Oxford Internet Institute describes itself as, “A multidisciplinary research and teaching department of the University of Oxford, dedicated to the social science of the Internet,” in other words, a leftist mouthpiece devoted to internet-related misinformation and Russophobia. This outfit is a go-to for the fake news media when it needs academic support for its political campaigns. For example, the Wired interviewed an OII psychologist Przybylski in article intended to downplay concerns about the negative influence of some tech on human health and to smack down Dr. Jean Twenge, one of the top researchers in this field.

Since the misattribution of a suspected breach into the DNC network in early 2016 to Russia, CrowdStrike has been boosted by:
- DNC loyalists in the FBI, CIA, DHS, and DNI
- the fawning coverage by mainstream media
- NBC News employing Shawn Henry, a CrowdStrike top officer and former executive assistant to FBI Director Robert Mueller, as a cyber security consultant
- $300M investments by Google and Silicon Valley VCs

07-17-28 Update: Shawn Henry serves as a consultant to NBC News.
Continuing Dangerous Pseudo-Science in Cyber Security, just published in WUWT. All major news organizations except for Breitbart and CNBC run ads by CrowdStrike, the Mueller-linked cyber-security firm that has incorrectly attributed the 2016 DNC leaks to the Russian government.
In 2012-2016, CrowdStrike became famous for its audacious and unsupported attributions of computer network breaches and data leaks to foreign state actors. CrowdStrike incorrectly attributed the 2016 DNC data leaks to Russia, and possibly participated in destroying actual evidence of the outside intrusion or internal leak. Later investigations and assessments relied entirely on the data, which was provided by CrowdStrike. Continue reading CrowdStrike and MSM: Pay for Ads, Get Fawning Articles Free
The terminal phase of the Trump Derangement Syndrom – billionaire Demonrat and climate alarmist Tom Steyer, calls for a NUCLEAR WAR to remove Trump:
“So if the answer is that we need those three things to happen for a course correction, I’d prefer to move a little quicker. How about that? But I take your point. Maybe we can have, like, a nuclear war and then we get a real course correction.“
“Steyer, who made his fortune as a hedge-fund manager, built the Need to Impeach campaign as an offshoot of his group NextGen America, best known for climate advocacy.”

The survey asked about social media impacts on adolescents’ health. The surveyed audience was more informed on the subject than the average population. 62% of respondents think that social media is very harmful for adolescents. 94% of the respondents think that social media is harmful (very harmful or slightly harmful).

Update. A Google team, working under SVP Urs Hölzle of WWF, refused to implement a feature improving Google Cloud security necessary to bid on military contracts (according to Bloomberg). Earlier, Google announced it would not work with the US military on Artificial Intelligence projects. But this feature is not related to AI. Thus, Google refuses to aid the US military at all. Meanwhile, Google services (including Google Maps and Google AI) are available to terrorist organizations and hostile armed forces worldwide. In 2013, Google’s Chairman Eric Schmidt visited North Korea where he aided the North Korean military. Continue reading Google Aided North Korean Military, Spurns Pentagon
Big Tech is the new Big Tobacco!
In fact, it is much worse. Big Tech has committed much worse fraud on its consumers than the Big Tobacco has been accused. Worse, Big Tech funded groups intimidating its opponents, and even lawmakers and government officials. Big Tech also uses its control of the communications line to silence its critics.
Jun 4, 2018 – Google (GOOG, GOOGL), Facebook (FB), and Twitter (TWTR) use their internet gatekeepers’ positions to manipulate (inflate) their stock prices. Continue reading Big Tech is the new Big Tobacco, plus …
In August 2017, Netflix (NFLX) offered for sale illegal marijuana all over the United States to promote another of its junk junkies-centered shows.
The offer was placed as an editorial article (an advertorial, in the professional slang) in multiple publications, including Variety (“Netflix made the point in its press materials that it’s not profiting off the sales of the product, which are for promotional purposes” — they should tell that to a judge), Mashable, Rolling Stone, and on Twitter. Continue reading Netflix is an illegal drugs dealer
Obama administration has passed mandatory net neutrality rules that force all internet users to pay for the Netflix internet traffic, whether they watch Netflix or not. This subsidy transfers at least $15B of citizens’ money into the Netflix pockets each year. The capitalized value of it exceeds $200B, which is higher than the NFLX market value. In exchange, Netflix made a $50M+ production deal with Obama.
Who said “corruption”? For the Demonrats, it is business as usual.
Clapper wanted to say that the FBI was spying on the Trump campaign as a side effect of spying on “Russians.” In the last moment, he corrected himself and this is what came from his mouth: “[FBI] was not spying on the campaign but on what Russians were doing, and in the sense, unfortunately, [long stumble] what they were trying to do was to protect our political system…”
Taken literally, he said that it was unfortunate for the FBI to protect our political system. But in reality, he communicated that the FBI was spying on the Trump campaign, just as Trump says. Either way, Clapper admitted the guilt of the involved FBI officials.

Google has interfered in the US Senate Elections on behalf of democrat Doug Jones, possibly on demand from a European government or political party. I know Google does such things because some of my AdWords messages were banned by Google in the U.S. after I had expanded targeting to the EU.
I know only a small part of this interference: on December 4, Google banned my paid message running on Google Adwords sites in Alabama. Below are the renderings of the message by Google Adwords.

The conservative media keeps tripping itself over lies invented by the left-stream media. I cannot blame it. People know the left-stream media lies, but still read it and take in much of what is written there. This time, conservatives fell for the fake news that Guccifer 2.0 (who took credit for release of the damning internal DNC documents) revealed as a GRU officer.
On or around March 21, 2018, The Daily Beast, a leftist tabloid on the lower end of the spectrum, published an “exclusive”: “‘Lone DNC Hacker’ Guccifer 2.0 Slipped Up and Revealed He Was a Russian Intelligence Officer.” Continue reading Why has FBI Accepted DNC’s “Russian Hacking” Claims?
My article Time to End the Resistance of the Swamp has been published in the American Thinker. The following are references and remarks to it. (updated on April 30, 2018)
A search warrant is a permission to conduct a search or seizure that would be otherwise illegal under the Fourth Amendment. This permission is given by a court to the executive branch, all power of which is vested in the president. Neither search warrant nor other court order is a permission for federal agents to act against the will of the president. Seizing president’s documents in order to harm the president is illegal.
In 2014, a bestselling conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, whose “2016: Obama’s America” was the second-highest grossing political documentary of all time, was sentenced to eight months of prison (a “halfway house”), community service, psychological counseling (sic!), and 5 years of probation for not observing formalities when donating $10,000 to his friend’s Senate campaign (see the gloating press release.) The prosecution was initiated by the FBI under James Comey and conducted by Obama’s inaugural donor and appointee Preet Bharara. But the investigation that led to the prosecution might had been started by Robert Mueller, who was FBI Director from 2001 to September 2013, when James Comey replaced him. Bharara was the head of the same US Attorney office for Southern District of New York that ordered the illegal raid against the President’s private lawyer. All familiar faces, aren’t they? Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz, and two other Republican Senators wrote a letter to Comey, questioning the FBI allegation that the investigation of Dinesh D’Souza was a result of a “routine review by the FBI of campaign filings.” The letter went unanswered because the allegation was obviously false: a routine review is unlikely to yield only one suspect, and most election law violations are referred to the Federal Election Commission, not to federal prosecutors. Continue reading End the Resistance of the Swamp (Endnotes)
The current “mainstream” media is a legacy of the Obama regime. It does not only shamelessly lies, but also participates in suppression of the views that were truly mainstream before Obama administration. It also colludes with the so-called “Big Tech,” formerly excellent technical companies that have become corrupt through complicity or under influence of the Obama administration. Continue reading Mainstream Media – Fake News, Hate News
This is a notice that you provide ad revenue to an organization or group that seems to attempt a violent and armed overthrow of the government, and recruits, indoctrinates, and trains mentally ill persons to carry it out. Similar activity might have been behind the murder attempt against Steve Scalise and other Republican Congressmen, committed by mentally ill James Hodgkinson in 2017.

In October 2015, DailyCaller published an article China, Russia Pay Washington Post To Publish Their Propaganda. The article said:
“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.”
The Russian propaganda supplement of the Washington Post, hosted at russianow.washingtonpost.com, disappeared in 2015 (according to the Web Archive; the Web Archive might be connected to Amazon.com; Amazon is co-owned and the Washington Post is owned by Jeff Bezos). That means that the Russian government stopped paying the Washington Post long before the 2016 elections. But the Chinese government continued paying WaPo through the elections campaign and after it through the present day. Continue reading Aided by WaPo, China Interfered in the 2016 Elections Against Trump
An ugly phenomenon has been spreading widely in the last few years. Small groups linked to the DNC, or even being far left from it, declared boycotts of conservative speakers, journalists, or publications, and demanded advertisers to sever ties with them. And many advertisers have been glad to oblige.
Recently, an insolent pup called to boycott Laura Ingraham, a Fox News personality: “Soooo @IngrahamAngle what are your biggest advertisers …“. That youngster is a victim of a mass schooling under the Obama regime, and such behavior might have been expected. But advertising executives are mature men and women that should recall the times when threats and attempts to silence the opponent in a political debate were unacceptable. Make America Great Again means that these norms of debate are coming back, among others. Continue reading Advertisers Boycotts – Think Before You Jump
Why have the Democratic Party, mainstream media, and other formerly liberal institutions been acting so crazily after the November 2016 elections? Why has the liberal dog allowed its far-left tail to wiggle so vigorously? One reason is that some individuals within the Obama administration and other powerful institutions have committed unspeakable crimes, and want to implicate as many others as possible. But reading Jordan Peterson suggested Continue reading What a Study of Lobsters Teaches about the Democratic Party
Stand with Dr. Bruce Gilley against the international persecution of his anti-anti-colonialism views! From Legal Insurrection:
Bruce Gilley of Portland State University (image above) published an article titled “The Case for Colonialism” in the decidedly anti-Colonial journal Third World Quarterly (home of the [despicable] Edward Said Award [and having notorious Noam Chomsky as a co-editor]).
In the Third World Quarterly piece, Gilley argues that, contrary to conventional wisdom, Western colonialism was “as a general rule, both objectively beneficial and subjectively legitimate in most of the places where it was found.” Continue reading Stand with Dr. Bruce Gilley!
Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook in an interview: “I feel fundamentally uncomfortable sitting here in California at an office, making content policy decisions for people around the world.”
Mark – if you feel uncomfortable doing that to us, imagine how your victims feel! Imagine what people from other countries think about this country because of your business. Well, you don’t need to strain your imagination. You listened to their governments and promised to accommodate them as the Obama regime used to do — at the expense of Americans. But this is not the topic of this post. Continue reading Facebook CEO is “uncomfortable” Being a World Censor!
An axis of the Democrat Attorneys General, far left groups, and various opportunists filed a bunch of lawsuits, challenging the repeal of Obamanet and mandatory net neutrality. These challenges have been consolidated into the case 18-70506, pending before the 9th Circuit of Appeals in San Francisco (ouch!).
I filed a Motion to Intervene on behalf of the FCC and the United States of America. The Motion states that Obamanet and mandatory net neutrality violate my rights, as well as the rights of almost every other American, under the Articles I, II, and III of the Constitution, and the I, IV, IX, and X Amendments. Continue reading Motion to Intervene in Support of Obamanet Repeal
The idea of government regulations of ISPs for net neutrality, expressed by Tim Wu in 2003 and mostly adopted by the FCC in 2005, turned on its head under Obama’s administration, which turned it from a user’s right to an obligation. This mandatory net neutrality (Obamanet) was probably the worst violation of the First Amendment since the passage of the Bill of Rights. The supporters of MNN usually claim that it protects users against abuse by their ISPs. In fact, it “protects” users from exercising choice regarding content. The idea that ISPs have strong incentives to mistreat their paying customers is foolish. But even if an ISP does that, the customers have a large set of consumer protection laws on their side. Most cases cited by MNN supporters are lies or misinterpretations. Somehow, consumer protection laws seem to fail (or are not applied) to protect consumers against Google, Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, etc.
We access the internet media under absurd rules, unprecedented for any other media: a typical user paying annual internet access fees of $1,000 cannot choose toward what internet content and services this money would be applied! Obama’s FCC has already made the choice for us. And the choice reflects influence of the far-left groups. Continue reading The Web Without Mandatory Net Neutrality
Fake News Networks announced that Putin had blamed supposed “Russian election interference” on Jews. A CNN headline shouted — Putin: Maybe Jews or minorities behind US election interference (1). But this is a lie. Unfortunately, many Jewish organizations have taken the bait.
In the interview with NBC, Putin refused even to contemplate the proposition that the Russian government was behind the alleged interference. Speaking of the trolls on social media, Putin said (2):
“So what if they’re Russians?” Putin said of the people named in last month’s indictment. “There are 146 million Russians. So what? … I don’t care. I couldn’t care less. … They do not represent the interests of the Russian state.” Continue reading Fake News about Putin and Jews
