Update: Christopher Steele was on the FBI’s payroll while compiling his phony Trump dossier, shown by the FBI payroll forms declassified on August 3. H/t TruePundit which broke this story in September 2017.
The media and the Democratic Party obsession with the Trump-Russia conspiracy theory originates from events of April-June 2016. The media operations by the Democratic Party and the media echo-chamber have distorted not only the information about the relevant events, but even the background political picture of April 2016. Then, the Democrats and Hillary were the natural preference for Putin because of their traditionally softer stance on foreign policy. Specific policies of Hillary and Obama were especially beneficial for Russia: Obama’s promise to Medvedev to be more accommodating toward Russia after the 2012 elections, Uranium One, the Clinton Foundation, the common cause against fracking and pipelines in the U.S., etc. Continue reading Origin of Operation “Crossfire Hurricane”
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
Today, that creates an impression that CrowdStrike is a respectable entity. But when it was invited by the DNC to take care of a suspected breach in 2016, it could not be mistaken for one. CrowdStrike was a four year old upstart hardly noticeable in the crowded market for cyber-security products and services of the kind it provided. The weakness of its product could not be compensated by its excellent PR, but strong ties to Obama’s FBI helped.
Low Ranking by Gartner
In 2016, CrowdStrike wasn’t even in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for the Endpoint Continue reading CrowdStrike: Crooked, Shrill, Unashamed
Robert Mueller has multiple conflicts of interest stemming from his relationships with James Comey and from him being a Democrat partisan. Here, I show two other conflicts of interest, a disclosed and an undisclosed one. Each of them is sufficient to terminate him.
Conflict #101: Robert Mueller represented Facebook
In February 2018, Robert Mueller made a ridiculous indictment of Russian citizens and corporations in Russia for Facebook posts intended to sow division and interfere with the 2016 elections (USA v. Internet Research Agency et al). The IRA paid Facebook and entered posts into its database. Facebook received money from the indicted and non-indicted foreign persons, selected recipients and shown them those posts. Facebook is the only entity that can be held accountable for the alleged misconduct. Why didn’t he indict, or, at least, investigate Facebook as a possible co-conspirator, accessory, or enabler? A hint: Facebook was one of Mueller’s clients in the Wilmer-Hale law firm, as he disclosed when he accepted an appointment as a special counsel. Robert Mueller was making about $3.5M a year by representing Facebook, Apple, Intel, etc. Robert Mueller also holds a small investment in Facebook according to the same disclosure.
