The New York Times and Washington Post “Intelligence Sources” Under Inspector General Investigation…

The Sunday Talk Shows are filled with various left-wing punditry using two media reports from the Washington Post and New York Times claiming anonymous, albeit transparently political, “intelligence officials” who state: the Russian government “hacked the U.S. election“.

wikileaks-duckFirst, the media’s choice of wording is critical within both reports.

It is impossible to “hack an election“.  What was hacked was the DNC email system, and John Podesta’s email.  WikiLeaks published the content of both “hacks”.

Additionally, WikiLeaks has denied the source of the information was a foreign government.

Both The Washington Post and New York Times, simultaneously, published articles on Friday claiming anonymous sources within the CIA (note: intensely political CIA Chief John Brennan in charge) point to the Russian government as the originators of the hacking.   However, both articles are written with very obtuse and non specific language intended to cover over the fact these reports are not actually stating the official intelligence community are making these specific claims.

All other media outlets subsequently take this illogically based presentation and spin their coverage whereby the “DNC hacked” becomes “the election hacked“.

The Media Is Not a Reflection of RealityIn essence, the MSM takes a politically manipulated original intelligence claim and pushes a political media angle within a manufactured story of their own creation.

When the media reports on their own media reports the concentric circle of a self fulfilling narrative expands toward the infinite horizon of nothingness.

Various Trump administration officials are then commanded to show up for interviews where they are asked to respond to the content of media reports which are based entirely on other manipulated media reports….. And that’s where we are today.

However, if anyone could actually pause and call out this nonsense they might find it useful to reference the already well known politicization of the entire intelligence community apparatus.  The politicization was/is so severe it led to an inspector general investigation:

More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S. military’s Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda’s branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials.

The complaints spurred the Pentagon’s inspector general to open an investigation into the alleged manipulation of intelligence. The fact that so many people complained suggests there are deep-rooted, systemic problems in how the U.S. military command charged with the war against the self-proclaimed Islamic State assesses intelligence.

The cancer was within the senior level of the intelligence command,” one defense official said. (link)

If, and that’s a big IF, there is any substantive truthfulness behind the politicized CIA accusation obtusely outlined within the Washington Post report, there is every reason to believe the anonymous sources are the same manipulative “senior intelligence command” already under inspector general investigation.

It is transparent to everyone the net intention of this ‘hacked election narrative’ is to provide the professional political UniParty class in Washington DC with a fortified defense mechanism to thwart off the incoming swamp draining.

The use of corporate media to protect the corporate legislative body is as familiar, and predictable, as Senators John McCain (see: Keating Five), and Lindsey Graham, fighting against term limits and finance reform on behalf of their corporate interests/benefactors, Wall Street and global interests.

However, moving forward there is considerable room for previously outlined optimism. The corruption within the intelligence community officials appears so severe, the White Hats are rising up from within the Defense Department to tackle it head-on.

With General Mattis as Secretary of Defense, Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor, General John Kelly as Secretary of Homeland Security, a top-of-class West Point graduate in Mike Pompeo brought in to take over and undoubtedly purge the CIA, and a lame duck struggle breaking out over the NSA with Admiral Mike Rogers, the implications are pretty obvious.

The white hats we have needed within the national security and intelligence departments are responding from a select group within the Defense Department.  This DoD surge appears to be why corporate interests are railing against “too many generals”.  The DoD generals also appears to be why all of those interests -within all of those corrupted political intel institutions- are going nuts thinking about what lays ahead.

Mounting evidence supports the ongoing thesis the Department of Defense has actually seceded from the political elites.  A wonderfully patriotic soft coup has taken place; and with the election of President Donald Trump, the white hats are poised on the horizon to reconstruct a nationalist-minded defense, security and intelligence apparatus.

This is the fundamental paradigm shift many have quietly discussed, yet few imagined possible.  Elevate your thinking… I mean REALLY elevate.  Now, Look closely:

Handout picture of al-Sisi kissing the mother of an army officer, who was killed during the recent Egypt uprising, during the graduation ceremony of a new batch of non-commissioned officers at the NCOs' Institute in Cairotrump vet

They have much more in common than people are currently grasping…. Think about it.

  1. As one of the millions of former military and civilian government workers that were victims who had their personal info stolen by a hacker(s) I would strongly suggest that any hacks common to government employees, the DNC and the election process would certainly have an open road via Hillarys personal computer that had access to all major government agency records.

        Trump is doing what a CEO should do and that is … build a team of top rate talent around him that he can delegate his goals to and let them do their jobs.

          People were talking about her health ever here in Italy. Even in USA no one bought the pneumonia, except for the media and her regressives. After her makeup, blood transfusion, L-DOPA, and/or other meds, possibly alcohol as well, steroids, facial injections and other sagging skin tricks and special lighting at the debate, a couple days later she was seen looking thrashed again. It’s really not hard to look well for a couple hours then back to bed for a week or two with the above tricks.

          I do know that steroids can bring back a voice even from laryngitis almost miraculously but it is not usually recommended unless an emergency for example a singer or someone who had to do a speaking engagement (debate) that could not be cancelled. I wasn’t fooled by Hillary’s FAKE HEALTH at all.

        When have we seen Putin coming to our shores to tell us what to do with Mexico? Yet somehow American media leads us to believe the US has the right to tell Russia what to do?

        Sixty years ago Nikita Khrushchev gave Russia’s Crimea away to Ukraine in only 15 minutes and many say he was drunk. Whether or not that is true, Crimea has the right and utilized that right to go back to being part of Russia. Hillary had nothing to do with that and if she could’ve she would’ve stopped it, as they did with their meddling in Ukraine. Putin outsmarted them for the protection of his own country and the protection of his own people.

            Nikita, 1954.
            And it was not Constitutional, it was like an EO.
            Dimitri Rogozin writes about it in his book, The Hawks of Peace.

            In 1991 the former Soviet states all had referendum. Crimea twice in the early 90’s voted exactly the same 93-95% to be returned home to Russia Federation.

            Gorby and Yeltsin both were too weak and compliant with the West and didn’t insist on it.

            When the Ukraine went totally pathological in 2014, Crimea left, Donbass left. Russia accepted Crimea. It did not and will not accept Donbass. It defends Donbass.

            Two theories about Donbass.
            Ukraine is a nazi nightmare society and if Donbass came to RF there would be endless years of guerrilla war with Ukies. The Russians don’t want that mess.
            The other is that Ukraine is about to collapse as a nation state and will break up of its dead weight. The nazis will form in Western Ukraine as Banderstan, night marches, torches, crime and sociopathy. They will be caressed by European nazis in Poland, Lithuania and NATO.
            The remainder will be Novorossiya, a very viable nation state formation. Thus, Russia doesn’t need to take Donbass. It will be part of Novorossiya.

            The brain drain of Ukraine has been going on for years. 5 million Ukies are in Russia now.
            Other highly trained are leaving for Europe and Canada and other nations. Ukraine now has the lowest level of social order in the modern world.

            When the truth comes out that has been hidden it will shock the world. A nation with 42 million, gifted with many high tech Russian industries, highly educated, professionals is now 32 million starving with no treasury, no pensions, no gas for energy, killing its own people, selling body parts, and renting its young women to the world.
            Sick ideology has infected every aspect of its social life. All paid for by US taxpayers through loan guarantees, arms “sales”, IMF loans, World Bank loans and sales of the Ukie’s best national assets to vultures (Biden’s son).

Evidence that would provide a smoking gun for criminal behavior by Obama and Clinton, both in Egypt and Libya.

    If true, then I’d also bet that Donald Trump is aware of the juicy details. Leverage.

    This is another reason we shouldn’t buy into the anti-Trump/anti-Russia gaslighting. The mass media and the CIA have been playing the American people for DECADES.

    None of this “Russian hacking” malarkey would fly if they hadn’t silenced Assange.

    100% calculated, coordinated, disinformation.

    The CIA has been doing this to other countries for YEARS.

    No big jump to bring the BS home.

    So it’s against the law. So what? So is spying on the Senate.

    The CIA under Brennan BROKE THE LAW and NOTHING HAPPENED.

    Seth Rich can’t testify. Somebody killed him.

    Assange can’t testify. The State Department silenced him.

    But we’re supposed to believe a CIA that has already violated their purpose and scope.

    I am reading a about the Rothchilds called Planet Rothchild. You know what?
    It is standard for Globalists to pick a country that is not going along with its plans,
    to plant all sorts of propaganda about that country to start a war, a coup or anything else they want to do. Also if they want to ignite tensions a lone gunman may kill someone important or the country will be taunted. Kind of like we are doing to Russia today.

    “El-Sisi also responded to a clip of Hillary Clinton accusing the Egyptian government of being “basically an army dictatorship,” during a debate with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. He said, in part, that “in Egypt there will not be a chance for any dictatorship because in Egypt there is a constitution, there is law, and there is the will of the people which will refuse to allow any leader to stay in his position for any period longer than his term which is four years.”

    All other media outlets subsequently take this illogically based presentation and spin their coverage whereby the “DNC hacked” becomes “the election hacked“. Sundance exposes the MSM manipulation and intent in that one sentence.

    The meme is being spun relentlessly as a psyop when the reality is that the DNC was hacked by a whistleblower who provided the emails to Wikileaks (Seth Rich? and where is Assange?). What should’ve been investigated both during the campaign and now is why Podesta, Hillary or anyone else involved in the emails haven’t come forward to challenge their authenticity. Crickets from all parties involved. Instead we are warned that the hacked emails may have been “altered” and Fake News is the biggest “safety concern in America”. Then quietly on November 30th the House passes Bill H.R. 6393, Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-02/house-quietly-passes-bill-targeting-russian-propaganda-websites

    This all feels like a set up. The desperation in blaming Russia, a nuclear super power, is psychotic. I pray they don’t use this manufactured accusation to trigger a false flag incident that could lead to war prior to the inauguration.

    The definition of “Russia hacked the election”, refers to the hacking of the Clot’s email server which she kept unsecured in her basement and the hack of Podesta’s emails
    The FBI has publicly stated with 99% certainty, that 5 or more countries may have accessed the material on the server.
    Meanwhile, some “genius” figured out that Podesta’s email acct. password was……password.
    How come Russia always gets the credit?……….

    Sad when I believe the Russian Government over our own…that’ll change in January.

    Kremlin says US election hacking reports ‘unfounded’
    Agence France Presse2 minutes ago
    Moscow, Dec 12, 2016 (AFP) –
    The Kremlin on Monday dismissed as “unfounded” reports of a secret CIA assessment that Russia tried to tip the US presidential poll in Donald Trump’s favour by hacking political institutions.
    “Not one of these absolutely baseless allegations is supported by any kind of information, let alone evidence,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
    “This all looks like absolutely unfounded, unprofessional, amateur accusations that have nothing to do with reality.”
    According to a report in The Washington Post last week, the CIA believes that Russian cyberattacks against the US were aimed at helping the Republican candidate win the White House.
    The report came on the heels of President Barack Obama’s order to review all cyberattacks that took place during the 2016 election cycle amid growing calls from Congress for more information on the extent of Russian interference in the election campaign.
    Republicans at the weekend dismissed the reports, with National Committee spokesman Sean Spicer saying “the intelligence is wrong.”
    Trump himself dismissed the reports as “ridiculous.”
    The Kremlin was propelled to the heart of American politics in July after Hillary Clinton’s campaign blamed Russia for an embarrassing leak of emails from the Democratic National Committee.
    Washington in October formally accused the Russian government of trying to “interfere” in the elections by hacking the Democrats behind Clinton, charges the Kremlin has repeatedly dismissed.
    President Vladimir Putin said in October that the accusations were meant to divert American voters’ attention away from domestic issues.

      The lesson of 2016 is never believe the government.
      It is a government.

      You can trust nothing from any government.
      It is the largest CYA operation man can create. No truth emanates from government, and little good comes from government. Even with good men and women at the most visible powerful positions, government is the greatest threat to Liberty. The Constitution was constructed to try to control its inherent dangers to Liberty. Never forget that.

  44. The way I read all this is…a political coup to steal the election from Trump will be met with a military coup to thwart it. No accident that Trump is nominating generals everywhere and it’s no accident that he attended the Army-Navy game to demonstrate his overwhelming support among the armed services (and law enforcement everywhere).

    But this would turn us into banana republic, you might say. That ship sailed eight years ago.

    If you think about everything Trump has done and said in this campaign, you will see that he has been considering this possibility for the last 18 months.

  45. John Bolton was on Fox and Friends this morning and he said it was basically unbelievable that the Russians would be so inept to leave their fingerprints behind on a hack; he says it could be a false flag meaning another foreign entity could have hacked and then makes it look like someone else did it, ie Russians.

    If Trump uses this stupid non-issue in the right way, he could get something substantial out of it….

    Minimum Federal standards for security for all elections, from the precinct level, nationwide…..which would include voter identification standards at the ballot boxes and a federal database of eligible registered voters (since people move, have second homes, etc). A back-up to help states who would have no idea if someone was registered in bordering states, etc…..the sole purpose and use of the database being to assure the integrity of elections and provide states with information about their registered voters.

    Free IDs for the idiots Dems say would be disenfranchised by identification standards….folks who can’t be expected to secure an ID on their own, even while figuring out how to get food stamps, Section 8 and Obamaphones…..

    Heavy new criminal penalties for cheaters.

    With all the pontificating about the solemn integrity of the institution of the electoral process, making election reform a part of the discussion would provide some cover for instituting NEEDED reforms that can put the hurt on the Dem “ground game”, also known as “cheating”.

    FBI disagrees with CIA on Russian influence in the presidential election

    The FBI did not corroborate the CIA’s claim that Russia had a hand in the election of President-elect Donald Trump in a meeting with lawmakers last week.

    A senior FBI counterintelligence official met with Republican and Democrat members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence in order to give the bureau’s view of a recent CIA report. The official did not concur with the CIA, frustrating Democrats.

    The CIA believes Russia “quite” clearly intended to send Trump to the White House. The claim is a bold one and concerned Democrats and some Republicans who are worried about Trump’s desire to mend relations with an increasingly aggressive Russia.

    The FBI official was much less convinced of the claims, providing “fuzzy” and “ambiguous” remarks.

    The different conclusions reached by the two intelligence agencies is a reflection of their different institutional styles. CIA officials often use past behavior and analysis based on gathered intelligence to advise leaders, whereas the FBI comes from a more legalistic background which relies on hard evidence to make a case.

    Rep. Devin Nunes, the chairman of the committee, sided with FBI’s assessment.
    “There is no clear evidence — even now,” he told the Post. “There’s a lot of innuendo, lots of circumstantial evidence, that’s it.”

          Weaponization of Islamists has never been a good idea, but it’s now off the rails to the point that the CIA is being run by and/or in cooperation with the MoBros. Since Trump already announced that he planned to designate the MoBros as a terrorist organization, it’s not surprising that they’re bouncing off the walls at the CIA at the prospect of dismantling the MoBros and their extensive network. Trump’s energy independence program could also strangle the Saudi’s ability to fund their Islamist expansion program.

            The level of systemic corruption in government agencies goes back decades. For the last eight years we’ve had a criminal in the presidency guilty of multiple identity theft felonies.

            The drain the swamp mantra was a great campaign catch phrase but is also an excellent moniker that captures the level of deep corruption, deceit and violation of American interests we are facing. To really drain this disgusting mess great strategic thinking and nimble game management is essential.

            We can thank our lucky stars that we have a top dealmaker and strategic thinker in President Trump to device and execute what will be a very difficult, dangerous and lengthy process to root out the mess. This man has navigated shark-infested waters for decades to reach the pinnacle of success in the toughest of industries.

            This leader was made for this moment. The looming battle will be hard, wrought with landmines at every turn and require the utmost in battle assessment and constant quick thinking to achieve success.

            We’re in the best of hands!

        I agree.
        Hillary was promising amnesty within her first hundred days in office.
        She was proposing a 550% increase in these so called Syrian refugees.
        She wanted to raise taxes, and she had a lot of negativity and baggage.
        The Russians didn’t defeat Hillary, she defeated herself.

        Her main problem was that too many people started paying attention.
