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.

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.

The Doctors for Disasters Preparedness (DDP) is known for the initiative known as the Oregon Petition. DDP latest press release Scientists Petition American Museum of Natural History to Stand against ‘Climate-Change’ Agitators says:

“More than 300 scientists have sent a letter and background information to the president of the American Museum of Natural History in response to demands to remove Rebekah Mercer, a generous donor, from the Board of Trustees, reports Physicians for Civil Defense.”

“Signers of the letter include two Nobel laureates, Ivar Giaever (physics, 1973) and Kary Mullis (chemistry, 1993), and many other esteemed, highly accomplished scientists, notes Dr. Orient. “The American Museum of Natural History should not tarnish its long and honorable tradition by allowing political pressure and street theater to dictate its policy.” Continue reading From Doctors for Disasters Preparedness

Dear President Trump,

The undersigned organizations and individuals write to express our strong support for the proposed President’s Commission on Climate Security. It is our understanding that this commission, which is being planned and would be directed by Dr. William Happer of the National Security Council staff, is currently being considered by your senior White House staff and relevant Cabinet secretaries and agency heads. …” — begins the Open Letter in support of Dr. Happer and the Commission on Climate Security, signed by dozens of freedom loving think tanks and distinguished scientists and published on March 18.

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.

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

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
Importance: High

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!

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.”

Confirmed: Vedomosti.ru 1, 2. Thus, Google inflames anti-Russian hysteria in the US while having ‘constructive dialogue’ with the Russian government.

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.

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.

Google AdWords: Fentanyl and Car Bombs are OK, Rifles are Bad

Google AdWords doesn’t allow bidding on certain words and phrase, except if an exception is requested and granted. Guess which word was disallowed among the following:

Fentanyl, improvised explosive device, IED, car bomb, jihad, rifle, RPG-7?

Rifle was disallowed, even in the phrase national rifle association! All other keywords above were allowed and approved.

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

Democrats Claim Suppression of Conservatives is Google’s Right

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

Google Uses Wikipedia to Suppress Competition

Google tends to push Wikipedia results to the top and to use them in snippets despite Wikipedia being unreliable, untrustworthy, biased, and unpredictable. This is not naivete but a ruthless anti-competitive strategy. Wikipedia is owned by Wikimedia, a typical San Francisco nonprofit foundation, to which Google and its top officers donated millions of dollars. But most of its income is apparently derived from small donations by visitors, mostly referred by Google. The business relations between Google and Wikimedia go both ways.

The Cal Government Is Responsible for the Wildfire Deaths

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

“Most Russian advertising on Facebook was used to build up pages, which then distributed their content “organically.”

The $100,000 of advertising that has been a big focus of Congressional interest was used primarily to build audiences for a variety of Russian-linked pages. In other words, they paid to buy likes and build the distribution channels through which they would pump disinformation.”  Continue reading Even The Atlantic Questioned Loyalty of Big Tech

Notes Misc

2018-11-06: Where I voted (Austin TX), the voting machines’ user interface is very counter-intuitive and inconvenient for older people. A dial for selecting checkboxes and buttons Back and Forward are intuitive for the Millenials, but not for senior citizens. That probably caused many of them to make mistakes, with the net effect negative to Republicans.
