NSA LEAKER ARRESTED FOR ESPIONAGE. STILL NO PROOF RUSSIA HACKED ELECTION
NSA Leaker Is A Bernie Supporter Who ‘Resists’ Trump.
The 25-year-old woman who stole “Top Secret” documents from the National Security Agency and leaked them to The Intercept appears to be a supporter of Bernie Sanders and other progressive icons, such as Bill Maher and Michael Moore.
Reality Leigh Winner’s apparent social media footprint also shows that she is a supporter of other liberal causes, including the Women’s March and the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim civil rights group.
She also recently referred to President Trump as a “piece of s__t” because of his position on the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) protests.
[WELL, SO DID A CNN TV 'HOST', BUT HE APOLOGIZED FOR DOING SOMETHING ONLINE THAT NO "HOST" HAS EVER BEFORE DONE REGARDING A SITTING U.S. PRESIDENT. SO, SURELY IT'S OKAY TO CALL THE PREZ A "POS" PUBLICLY BEFORE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE, RIGHT?]
"A startling 58 percent of Democratic voters believe Russia actually tampered with vote totals in order to get Trump elected — an outlandish conspiracy theory that remains unsupported by evidence. "
One news article from the Kingsville (Tex.) Record shows that [WINTER] graduated from Air Force basic training in March 2011.
Mark Zaid, a national security lawyer who frequently handles classified matters, told The Daily Beast that Winner is not a whistleblower.
“It is titillating for everyone with respect to political bent as to whether the elections were stolen, perhaps,” he said. “But it has absolutely nothing to do with any waste, fraud, abuse, or—more importantly—illegal U.S. government conduct to justify leaking it.”
Zaid added that Winner also likely would have faced charges under the previous administration and that her arrest doesn’t necessarily portend a crackdown on whistleblowers.
“I think the Obama administration would have prosecuted this same case without hesitation,” he said. “It’s not a partisan political prosecution. It is a case that upholds the lawful obligations that those who have access to classified information adhere to every single day.”
"BEING WHITE IS TERRORISM"
The sentiment above was included in a tweet the alleged leaker, Reality Winner, sent in February. Winner, who is herself white, tweeted at rapper Kanye West that he should make a shirt declaring whiteness an act of terror.
“@kanyewest you should make a shirt that says, ‘being white is terrorism’,” she tweeted.
Winner’s social media history is filled with left-wing messages and support for progressives like Bernie Sanders.
The majority of her recent tweets are angrily directed against President Donald Trump, in particular rehashing the liberal trope about “tiny hands.” She has also called the president an “orange fascist,” a “c__t” and bashed his selection of “Confederate General” Jeff Sessions [as what] amounts to racism.
Sessions is head of the agency currently prosecuting Winner.
Winner held a Top Secret security clearance for her job at Pluribus International, an NSA contractor. She reportedly is the source for The Intercept’s Monday report..."
"REPORT" MAY BE TOO KIND A TERM.
WHAT THE INTERCEPT POSTED WAS CONJECTURE AND NOTHING OF CERTAINTY, A LOT OF DOUBLE-SPEAK, REARRANGEMENT OF A WAD OF DRIVEL TO MAKE IT SEEM IMPORTANT.
IT'S BASICALLY A REHASH OF THINGS ALREADY TESTIFIED TO BEFORE CONGRESS....EXCEPT THAT IT'S A BIT MORE ALONG THE LINES OF WHAT MANY CONGRESSMEN AND AMERICAN VOTERS WANTED TO HEAR.
SINCE NEITHER COMEY NOR ROGERS WOULD SAY THEY HAD ANY REAL PROOF THAT RUSSIA TRIED TO SPECIFICALLY HELP TRUMP WIN,THIS PIECE OF FLOATING OFFAL SHOULD MAKE MANY ABSOLUTELY GIDDY WITH RENEWED HOPE
THEY SEE A GLIMMER OF HOPE THAT THEY CAN FINALLY "DUMP TRUMP".
IT ISN'T GOING TO HAPPEN, PEOPLE.
WHAT MAY EVENTUALLY HAPPEN IS THAT THE CIA AND NSA GET BUSTED AGAIN FOR MORE FAKERY AND FRAUD, MORE LIES AND MORE SHAFTING OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
AT THE VERY LEAST WE WILL SEE MANY GNASHING THEIR TEETH AND SCREAMING LIKE BANSHEES FOR HILLARY TO BE DECLARED QUEEN.
SOME MAY EVEN THREATEN TO LEAVE AMERICA...AGAIN.
SOME MAY EVEN TAKE TO TWITTER AND INSTAGRAM WITH PICS OF TRUMPS SEVERED HEAD.
SURELY, OH, SURELY WE WILL SEE MAYBE HUNDREDS POST SUICIDE THREATS TO FACEBOOK...AGAIN.
MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, PART 101
LET'S EXAMINE THAT "LEAK".... WATCH FOR THE SUBTLE ERRORS IN LOGIC AND WORD JUGGLING.
"The report INDICATES that Russian hacking MAY have penetrated..."
"The actors LIKELY used data obtained from that operation
"The NSA analysis does NOT draw conclusions about whether the interference had ANY effect on the election’s outcome and CONCEDES that MUCH REMAINS UNKNOWN....
"That review did NOT attempt to assess WHAT effect the Russian efforts had on the election..."
NOTHING CONCRETE IN ANY OF THAT, IS THERE?
"But in order to dupe the local officials, the hackers needed access to an election software vendor’s internal systems to put together a convincing disguise. So on August 24, 2016, the Russian hackers sent spoofed emails purporting to be from Google to employees of an unnamed U.S. election software company..."
EXACTLY THE SORT OF THING THE CIA/NSA WAS BUSTED BY WIKILEAKS FOR DOING WITH STOLEN RUSSIAN SOFTWARE.
AND AFTER THAT, THE NSA WAS EXPOSED FOR HACKING AND THEIR SOFTWARE WAS USED IN A WORLDWIDE CYBER-ATTACK.
"Hackers Hit Dozens of Countries Exploiting Stolen N.S.A. Tool" said the New York Times.
Newsweek pointed out that Russia was hit hardest by last month's ransomware bug, which as stolen from the NSA.
"Ransomware Cyber Attack Using NSA Tools Hits Russian Government, Global Firms and Hospitals.
According to the Washington Post Microsoft released their updated patch after learning the vulnerability was exploited by techniques employed by the NSA.
Edward Snowden, the fugitive former NSA contractor criticized the agency for not revealing the vulnerability to certain organizations, such as hospitals, and said Congress should push the NSA on other potential flaws."
WHAT A COINCIDENCE!
BOTH THE CIA AND NSA ENGAGED IN HACKING?
NO SURPRISE THERE.
MAYBE ONE OR BOTH HACKED THE DNC, THE RNC, TRUMP, CLINTON, ETC?
NAAAAAH, SURELY NOT!
IT WASN'T THAT LONG AGO THAT CONGRESS WAS SCREAMING "FOUL!" WHEN THEY LEARNED THEIR COMPUTERS HAD BEEN TAPPED BY THE CIA/NSA BOYS.
I SAY CIA/NSA BECAUSE IT'S HARD TO SEPARATE THE TWO WHEN EACH ARE CONSTANTLY SPYING ON AMERICANS.
Inquiry by C.I.A. Affirms It Spied on Senate Panel - The New York Times
CIA admits improperly hacking Senate computers
THEN THERE'S THIS...LAUGHING AS I WRITE.... WHAT A REACH FOR SOMETHING OTHER THAN A "MAYBE"....
"The spear-phishing email contained a link directing the employees to a malicious, faux-Google website that would request their login credentials and then hand them over to the hackers.
The NSA identified seven “POTENTIAL victims” at the company.
[ONLY 7 AND ALL "POTENTIAL", NOTHING CONFIRMED]
While malicious emails targeting three of the potential victims were REJECTED by an email server, at least ONE of the employee accounts was LIKELY compromised, the agency concluded.
[IS THIS LIKE A PRAYER? "O, GOD, PLEASE LET JUST ONE BE COMPROMISED, PLEEEEASE!"]
The NSA notes in its report that it is “UNKNOWN whether the aforementioned spear-phishing deployment successfully compromised all the intended victims, and what POTENTIAL data from the victim COULD have been exfiltrated.”
HOW ABOUT NONE WERE PROVEN TO HAVE BEEN 'COMPROMISED'?
HOW ABOUT THEY GOT NO DATA?
WHY DOESN'T THE "LEAK" NAME THE COMPUTERS, THE STATES, ANYTHING, ANYONE WHO MIGHT HAVE BEEN TARGETS IN THAT 'ATTACK ON 7'?
I GUESS THEY DON'T KNOW THAT FOR SURE, EITHER?
IF THEY NAMED SPECIFIC PEOPLE, "ELECTION OFFICIALS", WHO CAME UNDER 'ATTACK', THOSE COMPUTERS COULD BE GONE OVER BY JUST ABOUT ANYONE TRAINED IN 'I.T.' AND SUCH A HACK WOULD BE FOUND.
THEY AREN'T NAMED BECAUSE IT DIDN'T HAPPEN, MAYBE?
THEY DON'T WANT ANOTHER EMBARRASSING MOMENT WHERE THE TRUTH COMES OUT?
WHAT A LOAD OF DOUBLE-SPEAK!
"POTENTIAL", "LIKELY", "UNKNOWN", "COULD"...NONE OF THAT IS PROOF OF ANYTHING!
THESE ARE ALL GREAT BIG MEANINGLESS NOTHINGS!
GUESSWORK, IMAGININGS OF UNSOUND MINDS, MINDS LIKE THE TWITTER-RAGING LEAKER, 'DRIVEN MAD' BY TRUMP'S WIN AND HER INABILITY TO ACCEPT HARSH REALITY? .
THAT PUTS HER IN A CLASS WITH POOR OLD HILLARY, AND THE WASHED-UP KATHY GRIFFIN.
IT'S A NATION-WIDE MENTAL INSTABILITY ON A GRAND SCALE.
HYSTERIA IS MOUNTING.
"...the NSA report indicates that VR Systems was targeted ONLY with login-stealing trickery, rather than computer-CONTROLLING malware..."
IT WAS NOTHING BUT A PHISHING ATTEMPT, NOT SOME MONUMENTAL ALL-OUT MALICIOUS ATTACK!
ONE COMPANY WAS INVOLVED AND 7 AMERICAN INDIVIDUALS!
HOW MANY OF US DEAL WITH PHISHING AND SPAMMING EVERY DAY?
A HIGH SCHOOL KID CAN PULL THIS OFF.
IN THE SECOND 'ATTEMPT', spear-fishing emails were sent to 122 email addresses “associated with named local government organizations,” probably to officials “involved in the management of voter registration systems.”
122, 1-2-2, 122, THAT'S IT.
NOT EXACTLY A "MASSIVE CYBER-ATTACK, WAS IT?
GOOGLE HAD ALREADY SENT WARNINGS TO ALL OF US WHO HAVE A GMAIL ACCOUNT TO BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR THIS BEFORE THE ELECTIONS, MONTHS BEFORE THE ELECTIONS.
WAY BACK IN MARCH, 2016...
Mar 1, 2016 - Another fake Google phishing email is currently in circulation, manipulating readers into surrendering access to their email accounts....
Mar 25, 2016 - Google revealed that as many as 1 million Gmail accounts may have ...
When a hack is detected, a pink Warning tab appears on top of Gmail urging affected users to better protect themselves.
In addition to that bar, users will now get a full-page warning with instructions about how to stay safe, the company said in an announcement on Thursday. This is what you’ll see if a government is trying to hack into your Gmail account:
THAT MADE A FEW HEADLINES.
WE WERE REMINDED OF THIS SEVERAL TIMES ALL THE WAY UP TO ELECTION DAY, WITH MORE COMING IN OCTOBER.
PEOPLE CAN AND DO READ SUCH WARNINGS, RIGHT?
THAT MAY BE WHY NO ONE FELL FOR IT!
GOOGLE, NOT THE NSA, SAVED THE DAY!
IT JUST GETS MORE LUDICROUS FROM HERE...
"The NSA, however, is UNCERTAIN about the results of the attack, according to the report. “It is UNKNOWN,” the NSA notes, “whether the aforementioned spear-phishing deployment successfully compromised the intended victims, and what POTENTIAL data COULD have been accessed by the cyber actor.”
"UNCERTAIN", "UNKNOWN", "POTENTIAL", "COULD"...
THERE'S NOTHING WITH ANY MEAT IN IT HERE, NOTHING FOR CERTAIN!
THEY SIMPLY DON'T KNOW.
THEN OBAMA MAKES IT EVEN MORE 'FANTASTICAL' WITH HIS RENDITION OF WHO, WHAT AND WHEN...
"At a December press conference, President Obama said that he told Russian President Vladimir Putin in September not to hack the U.S. election infrastructure. “What I was concerned about in particular was making sure [the DNC hack] wasn’t compounded by potential hacking that could hamper vote counting, affect the actual election process itself,” Obama said. “So in early September, when I saw President Putin in China, I felt that the most effective way to ensure that that didn’t happen was to talk to him directly and tell him to cut it out and there were going to be serious consequences if he didn’t. And in fact we did not see further tampering of the election process.”
IF HE REALLY SAID THAT, CAN WE IMAGINE HOW HARD PUTIN LAUGHED?
"CUT IT OUT"???
OBAMA TOLD PUTIN 'NOT TO MESS WITH THE ELECTION' WHY?
NOBODY HAD PROVEN RUSSIA HAD 'MESSED WITH' ANYTHING.
AT FIRST, WE WERE TOLD CHINA WAS TRYING TO 'INTERFERE', REMEMBER?
OR MAYBE NORTH KOREA.
AND TO SAY HE TOLD THAT OLD KGB AGENT TO NOT DO ANYTHING...I MEAN...TO SAY TO A MAN LIKE THAT "DON'T YOU HACK, CUT IT OUT"?
I'M EMBARRASSED FOR OBAMA, TRULY, THAT HE MADE SUCH CHILDISH, SCHOOLYARD, "YOU BIG BULLY, LEAVE US ALONE" COMMENTS.
BUT WHAT IF...WHAT IF BIG O WAS MERELY 'PUTTING A BUG' IN PUTIN'S EAR, A SORT OF SUGGESTION, OR LIKE DARING SOMEONE TO DO SOMETHING JUST TO PUSH THEM INTO DOING IT BECAUSE YOU WANT THEM TO DO IT? GOAD RUSSIA INTO IT, "DISCOVER" IT, CALL THE PRESS, MAKE THE NSA/CIA HEROES, WIN THE ELECTION FOR HILLARY BECAUSE OF ELECTION TAMPERING BY TRUMP AND HIS RUSKIE PALS....BUT IT BACKFIRED IF THAT WAS THE PLAN.
NICE OF THE INTERCEPT TO POINT OUT THE WARNINGS CAME BEFORE THE ELECTION.
“In August 2016 warnings went out from the FBI and DHS to those agencies. This was NOT a surprise. This was NOT hard to defend against. But you needed a commitment of budget and attention.”
MORE ATTENTION AND MAYBE A CREDIBLE, PROVABLE THREAT?
MAYBE SOMETHING CONCRETE AND NOT JUST A STRING OF MAYBES, OR COULD-BES, OR POTENTIALS?
GOOGLE AND EVEN PAYPAL HAD SENT OUT WARNINGS IN MARCH OF 2016 AND CONTINUED TO WARN UNTIL NOV. 23, 2016!
THEY WERE BEHIND GOOGLE IN WARNINGS!
MAYBE THE NSA AND CIA SHOULD HIRE GOOGLE?
"The NSA document briefly describes two other election-related Russian hacking operations... The agency was unable to determine whether there was any targeting using this (2nd ATTEMPT) account.
In a third Russian operation, the same group of hackers sent test emails to addresses at the American Samoa Election Office... It is unclear what the effort achieved..."
SAMOA HAD HOW MANY VOTERS?
WELL, NONE IN THE GENERAL ELECTION.
AS A U.S. TERRITORY OF PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT BORN AS AMERICAN CITIZENS, SAMOANS CAN'T VOTE IN GENERAL ELECTIONS
"American Samoa will not participate in the November 8, 2016, general election because it is a territory and not a state. However, the five non-incorporated territories that send Delegates to the House of Representatives will participate in the presidential primaries.
In the presidential primaries, American Samoa voters will express their preferences for the Democratic and Republican parties' respective nominees for President.
Registered members of each party may only vote in their party's primary, while voters who are unaffiliated may choose any one primary in which to vote.
The Democratic caucus took place on March 1, 2016.
Democratic Party's presidential nominating process in American Samoa, 2016: TOTAL= 237.
The Republican caucus took place on March 22, 2016:
– Summary of results –
Candidate Popular vote Estimated delegates
Count Percentage Pledged Unpledged Total
Hillary Clinton 162 68.4% 4 4 8
Bernie Sanders 61 25.7% 2 1 3
Rocky De La Fuente 14 5.9%
Total 237 100% 6 5 11
American Samoa, a cluster of islands near Australia and home to about 55,000 people, is the only U.S. territory where citizenship isn't inherited at birth.
American Samoans cannot run for president or vote in the general presidential election, but they can take part in presidential primaries.
WE'RE TO BELIEVE THAT RUSSIA TARGETED AMERICAN SAMOA?
FOR ZERO GENERAL ELECTION VOTES AND 11 DELEGATES TO THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION?
11, AND 8 OF THOSE ALREADY PLEDGED TO CLINTON?
I'D HAVE BEEN FAR MORE IMPRESSED HAD THE POOR OLD INTERCEPT RELEASED POSTED COLORING BOOK PAGES FROM THE STAFF'S KIDS.
THIS 'ARTICLE' WAS NOT FROM THE SOUND, LOGICAL SIDE OF LIFE.
THE PHRASE "FULL OF MORE HOLES THAN A SIEVE" COMES TO MIND...
IT WAS ALL GUESSWORK.
WELL, MAYBE SOME SENSATIONALISM.
THEY HAD THEIR 15 MINUTES OF FAME.
IF THEY PLAY THEIR CARDS RIGHT, THEY MAY GET SOME HELP FROM THE DEMOCRATS (AND REPUBLICANS LIKE McCAIN AND GRAHAM) TO REALLY FLESH THIS OUT, MAKE A MOUNTAIN OUT OF A MOLEHILL, MAYBE EVEN CARRY IT ON THROUGH THE SUMMER.
YEAH, "IT'LL TAKE A VILLAGE", BUT MAYBE...GIVEN A HALF-DOZEN WELL-PLACED 'VILLAGE IDIOTS' WITH THE SKILLS OF MULTIPLE TERMS OF LYING TO VOTERS UNDER THEIR BELTS...AND MAYBE McCAIN, AGAIN, AND GRAHAM, AGAIN, COULD SPIN THIS FOR THOSE IN THE GOP WHO REALLY HATE THAT TRUMP WON?
THEY MAKE A 'CUTE COUPLE', DON'T THEY?
IF MAINSTREAM MEDIA REPEATS THE LIE OFTEN ENOUGH, THE CURRENTLY RABID CROWD WILL SURELY TAKE IT AND RUN...TO BREAK SOME MORE STORE WINDOWS, BEAT UP ANOTHER ELDERLY MAN, PUNCH A POLICE HORSE , ETC, LIKE WE SAW AFTER THE ELECTION DIDN'T GO AS PLANNED... MAYBE, IF THEY CAN BLOW THIS JUST A WEE BIT MORE OUT OF PROPORTION.
MAYBE THIS TIME THE HORSE WILL PUNCH BACK...I HOPE.
The FBI would not comment about whether it is pursuing a criminal investigation into the cyber attack on VR Systems.
THAT'S BECAUSE THE FBI RELIES ONLY ON COLD, HARD FACTS THAT WILL HOLD UP IN COURT.
THE JOKE THAT THE INTERCEPT POSTED WOULD BE LAUGHED OUT OF COURT...UNLESS THE JUDGE WAS A DEMOCRAT, MAYBE., OR A"DUMP TRUMP" ADVOCATE.
MEANWHILE, THE CASE AGAINST HILLARY FOR THOSE EMAILS JUST MAY BE REOPENED SOONER THAN WE THOUGHT.... KARMA STRIKES AGAIN?
