“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only liked to use a BlackBerry and, more specifically, only liked to use a specific type of increasingly older and more out-of-date BlackBerry.
She doesn’t know how to use a desktop computer. She–
Sean Cole: Wait, wait, wait. Back up. Back up. She doesn’t know how to use a desktop 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.
Sean Cole: How is that possible?
Garrett Graff: The short answer is, I don’t know.” Continue reading Hillary Clinton does not know how to use a computer
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

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:
- Every user must have a separate account and password.
- Passwords are never emailed.
- 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.
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!
(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

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
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).

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
Maria Butina is totally innocent.
There was no Russian interference in the 2016 election (see the Summary of the Russian Interference Hoax and the DNC leaks related materials on my website) except for RT propaganda aiding Democrats.
Butina has been prosecuted by Obama holdovers and accused of spying without any evidence, only because she met Trump once or twice and shares the views of the National Rifle Association (NRA). She has been in prison since July, and pleaded guilty under duress. Continue reading Maria Butina is an Innocent Victim of the Rigged Witch Hunt
The funniest part of the Google CEO Sundar Pichai testimony before the House Judiciary Committee was when Representative Lieu (D-CA) said that Google and other for-profit corporations have First Amendment rights—after Democrats were denying, protesting, and suppressing such rights for decades and had a derangement syndrome over Citizens United. Soon, they might figure out that bakers refusing to make cakes for a “gay marriage” ritual have First Amendments rights too.
Google does have First Amendment rights and exercise them on its corporate blogs, by speaking to the media, placing ads on the sites of third parties and its own site, and in many other ways. But Google Search, YouTube, and most other resources are services, not speech. They are not different from auto repair or accounting. This is how Google has been marketing them, and this is how users understand them. Continue reading Democrats Claim Suppression of Conservatives is Google’s Right
2018-11-18 update: CA Gov. Jerry Brown Vetoed Bipartisan Wildfire Management Bill in 2016 (Canada Free Press, August 2018):
Last year, as all Hell was breaking loose in California as residents were burned out of their homes, neighborhoods and businesses, Gov. Jerry Brown was jetting around the world spouting climate change propaganda, and calling this California’s ‘new normal.’
“With climate change, some scientists are saying Southern California is literally burning up, and burning up as maybe a metaphor or a description not just to the fires right here, but what we can expect over the next years and decades,” Brown said.
Today [2018-08-09], as California burns once again under torrential wildfires, many Californians have been asking why the dramatic increase in wildfires in the last five years… that is everyone except Governor Jerry Brown.
The current (November 2018) wildfire are the deadliest in California history. Wildfires are normal in California, but their extent and the damage in this and previous years are unprecedented. Continue reading The Cal Government Is Responsible for the Wildfire Deaths
On or around October 31, 2017, Twitter testified about so-called Russian activities related to the 2016 U.S. presidential election. This and consequent testimonies were slanted to support the Democratic conspiracy theory of “Russian interference.” It might have been prepared together with congressional Democrats.
Even with this understanding, a closer look at Twitter testimonies reveals surprising findings:
- Twitter and the DNC interpreted the word Russian as a reference to the native language and/or place of birth of an individual, not employment by the Russian government or even Russian citizenship. Large part (possibly most) of the so-called Russian-linked accounts belong to American citizens with no relation to the Russian government. At the same time, Twitter elected to disregard accounts making election related tweets from indeterminate locations, and likely to represent foreign governments and other entities.
- Answering questions from senators, Twitter repeatedly used the term automated account as a synonym of a bot, thus dehumanizing Twitter users. The use of automation is allowed and even encouraged by Twitter, which provides a special Application Programming Interface (API) for this purpose. The automation might be as simple as manually scheduling tweets for a later time or auto-responding when the user is away from his or her computer.

This is what foreign election interference looks like:
This is today’s opinion page of The Guardian. Like almost all foreign election interference, it attacks Republicans, sows internal division, and benefits Democrats. Note the inauthentic use of the .com domain, misleading people to believe that this British newspaper is an American one. This happens daily.
2018-10-14 Update: Added clarifications and remarks on the relationships of the Mueller’s law firm WilmerHale with the government of China are added near the end. Also, the words “expectation of future business with China” were changed to “expectation of future income contingent on approval of Chinese government” to better reflect the structure of his compensation in WilmerHale.
In March 2017, two months before his appointment as Special Counsel, Robert Mueller received $24,000 (~ ¥130,000) from a firm owned by a top official of the Chinese government and the Communist Party of China. Almost certainly, he had expectation of future income contingent on approval of Chinese government. In exchange, he accepted, articulated, and publicly committed himself to the DNC conspiracy theory that “Russia had hacked the democracy”. Russia has hacked neither democracy nor the Democrats (despite them being near opposites). The DNC had an incompetent information systems team and an unprotected network that could have been hacked by anybody. For eight months the DNC fought FBI attempts to help, while possibly being suspicious of the FBI because of Hillary’s bathroom server. Persons who published the DNC’s dirty laundry or gave it to WikiLeaks are likely not connected to Russia at all and might be Americans. We don’t know their names because the Democratic Party made up the narrative that Putin ordered the DNC hacking and leaking of documents to aid Trump. Obama administration sent the FBI, CIA, DHS, and ODNI to confirm this narrative, rather than to investigate who had accessed the DNC voter’s database, believed to contain very detailed personal profiles of almost all adult Americans. The conspiracy theory of a Trump-Russia collusion was built on top of this narrative.
The firm that paid Mueller his ¥130k is the International Data Group (IDG), a subsidiary of China Oceanwide Holdings Group. Continue reading Mueller Investigation was Bought for more than ¥130k
The social media component of the alleged “Russian activities in the 2016 elections” was non-existent. The IRA, a.k.a. the “troll farm” in Russia, allegedly bought ads for about $100k; this is chump change and not even worthy of a government operation. Most of it has been spent on Facebook, and most ads ran AFTER the 2016 elections. Continue reading Imaginary Social Media Component of Imaginary Russian Meddling
It’s almost funny that the so-called Intelligence Community Assessment (January 6, 2017, Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections) claimed that the Russian interference had been against Hillary and in favor of Trump, although most of the evidence in it demonstrated the opposite. RT (Russia Today TV) and IRA (Internet Research Agency, a “troll farm” in Saint Petersburg) agitated in favor of Hillary and the policies of the Democratic Party, and against Trump and the policies of the Republican Party.
RT was anti-Trump in the 2016 elections (from The Nation)
The Nation is far from being pro-Trump. I think it might be called an Old New Left. This is what it says on the subject, with the links to the RT footage. The following are long quotes from The Nation.
RT America Was Not ‘Pro-Trump’
The problem with the claim that RT America is pro-Trump is that it is simply false. Many of the channel’s biggest names were either ardently anti-Trump or highly skeptical of what a Trump presidency might mean for America. Continue reading Russian Activities in 2016 Elections were anti-Trump
Hillary presidential campaign chairwoman Donna Brazile’s book Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House can be retold in one sentence:
The Russians have hacked the elections and poisoned my dog Chip.
Nevertheless, the book reveals some information concealed by Hillary and the DNC loyalists in FBI.
- In August, seeing CrowdStrike’s helplessness, the DNC invited real cyber security people to form a competent network security team that the book calls the Hacker House, or HH. This contradicts the DNC official story that CrowdStrike was doing a fabulous job.
- HH found out that the DNC network was unprotected, and that anybody could have hacked into it
- HH informed DNC and Hillary’s campaign leadership of this fact and spent most of its time training DNC networking administrators
- HH was asked, but refused to support allegations that the DNC network had been penetrated by “Russians.” HH also had run-ins with CrowdStrike.
- The DNC, Hillary, and the Obama administration disregarded and suppressed this information. They continued their electoral campaign strategy: worsening relations with Russia, accusing Trump of collusion with Putin, and using the FBI, CIA, DHS, and ODNI to sabotage Trump’s campaign. During the transition period, John Brennan and other Obama/Clinton loyalists used false allegations of the “Russian hacking” to attempt something like a coup d’état. The coup was not a complete failure – the angry Democrats have nearly wrestled control of the DOJ away from the elected president.

2018-10-03 update: I have just noticed that the declassified ICA text was published only a few hours before the joint session of Congress that certified Trump as the next president. James Clapper spent the previous day falsely alleging that the Assessment had been done by the U.S. Intelligence Community, pushed an exaggerated version of its conclusions, and leaked parts of it to the media. In his testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, Clapper made repeated assaults on the president-elect. When referring to Trump’s sober reaction to the alleged assessment, Clapper uttered the following: “I’ve received many expressions of concern from foreign counterparts of what has been interpreted as disparagement of the intelligence community.” The Assessment and even the published-the-next-day ICA text were still classified and hidden from the president-elect! Now that seems like a last ditch effort to prevent Trump’s inauguration. BTW, who were his ‘foreign counterparts’ and why was he so concerned about their opinions?
Attached is a review of the declassified version of the notorious Intelligence Community Assessment, published on 01/06/2017. The declassified ICA text (“the ICA text” or “the text”, referring to the public version of the alleged assessment) regurgitates the Democratic talking points and allegations that Putin ordered interference in the 2016 elections, including claims that the alleged interference was directed against electing Hillary and in favor of electing Trump as president. The latter statement was supported only by the FBI and CIA, not by the NSA. The ICA demonstrated an extreme partisan bias in favor of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party. The ICA text contains no declassified information. It repeats the same allegations over and over either without evidence, or with evidence refuting them. A quarter of the text is devoted to proving the obvious: that RT is controlled or directed by the Russian government.

Needs update! (See The Real Origination Story of the Trump-Russia Investigation and more recently published evidence)
2018-09-18. It’s possible that the DNC and/or Hillary campaign started preparing the “Russian collusion” story immediately after the initial attribution of the DNC network breach to Russia by CrowdStrike on May 6 (rather than on June 12, as assumed in the article.) That better explains the hiring of Christopher Steele in early June, the issuing of a visa to Natalia Veselnitskaya on June 1, the strange text of the email introducing Veselnitskaya to Trump Jr., and the meetings between Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS with her immediately before and after her meeting with Trump Jr. Continue reading Origin of Operation “Crossfire Hurricane”
Massachusetts has been hit by a series of natural gas explosions. The main cause of this disaster is aging and deteriorating infrastructure, natural gas pipelines in this case. Massachusetts (and New York, California, and few other deep blue states) diverted necessary funds from maintaining and upgrading infrastructure to climate change propaganda as well as subsidies to cronies in “renewable energy” and “carbon free” financing. Massachusetts Democrats were so prejudiced against pipelines that the state elected to import LNG from Russia. Continue reading Climate Alarmism Kills
Corrected on 2018-08-26: 70,000 is the number of total deaths from drug overdose. Fentanyl and other synthetic opioids account for 40% of them.
There were more than 70,000 deaths from drug overdose in the U.S. in 2017. About 30,000 of them involved fentanyl or similar synthetic opioids many times stronger than heroin. Most illegally purchased synthetic opiods are manufactured in China. Online shops in China used to receive payments from Americans through Mastercard and Visa to ship these deadly drugs by mail. The number of overdose deaths involving synthetic opioids skyrocketed 10x since 2013: Continue reading Mastercard, Jihad, and Fentanyl
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.

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.”

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
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.
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.

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?
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
Jerry Brown fiddles while California burns.
Niagara Falls are partially frozen and half of the USA is covered in snow.
A coalition of UN agencies and foreign NGOs has been enticing officials of the U.S. municipalities and even states to collaborate with them directly, bypassing the federal government and breaking the laws. The best known among such attempts is ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives). Contrary to its name, it’s a centrally controlled foreign political entity. It’s connected to the Climate Action Network (another foreign NGO) and the notorious Agenda 21. Jerry Brown answered their siren song and went completely mad.

The Democratic National Committee has multiple open vacancies in the tech department including IT Systems Administrator, Product Manager, and Chief Security Officer.
