    Were the hackers who broke into the DNC’s email really Russian?

      Nobody hacked the DNC. It was an insider job. Why the DNC didn’t let the FBI investigate?

      As Carr notes, the FBI never examined the servers that were hacked at the Democratic National Committee. Instead, the DNC used the private computer security company CrowdStrike to detect and repair the penetrations.

      “All the forensic work on those servers was done by CrowdStrike, and everyone else is relying on information they provided,” said Carr. “And CrowdStrike was the one to declare this the work of the Russians.”

      Wow. Another Ukrainian connection. The article mentions that Crowdstrike identified a program associated with Russia to prove Russia hacked the DNC but an IT specialist says Ukrainian hackers have the same program. Another Atlantic Council connection. The epicenter of Putin, Trump hate. Additionally, we’ve learned from Wikileaks Vault 7 that it’s totally possible to leave “fingerprints” framing another country for a hack. And even if Russia, and ONLY Russia did hack the DNC, they didn’t, that does to prove that’s how Wikileaks got the emails. An ex UK ambassador says he was personally given the emails in DC by a DNC staffer disgusted by the partys corruption. The source was a whistleblowers LEAK. It’s believed his name was Seth Rich. He was murdered shortly thereafter. Wikileaks offered $30,000 for help solving his murder. The reward is now $130,000. Anyway, the whole drumbeat for war and impeachment connects to the Ukraine and Atlantic Council, McCains bffs. McCain needs to revise himself for those connections and his shameful role in the dossier smear. Then we need to investigate the ACs attempt to psy ops America into WWIII.

    I also sent her an email.

    Hi Congresswoman Stefanik:

    I would like to share the latest story from The Conservative Treehouse about the surveillance on our President. I want you to know you have a lot of admirers that are rooting for you because you care and want to get to the truth.

    I am pretty sure that P Trump will have the “anchor baby” situation defined and made very clear in the 14th amendment. The 14th amendment and sanctuary cities has just been so misused by the democrats and they need to be CLARIFIED big time so there is no wiggle room..

      Would prefer PTrump get at least two new SCOTUS judges before challenging the interpretation of the 14th Amendment. Besides Gorsuch replacing Scalia, looks like Kennedy and Ginsburg are on the way out next year. Plus it would be a bonus if the rumors of a compromised Supreme Court justice (Roberts?) were confirmed by evidence with request for that justice to step down. That may be way too much to expect but I can dream….

    The more I ponder upon it the more the current situation inside the Beltway increasingly harkens back to the days of the Bonus Army . Those petitioners were respectful of the law and still had faith in the political process. However, if Congress, et al, doesn’t soon perform a collective rectal extraction of their heads they might yet see another civil war; from the inside.


  13. CheshireCat says:

    Where did all these Democrats come from? They grow thicker and thicker and act more and more outrageously at each successive election. Now yesterday they had the presumption to elect S. H. Dwinelle to the Judgeship of the Fifteenth District Court, and not content with this, they were depraved enough to elect four out of the six Justices of the Peace! Oh, ‘Enery Villiam, where is thy blush! Oh, Timothy Hooligan, where is thy shame! It’s out. Democrats haven’t got any.

    But Union men staid away from the election – they either did that or else they came to the election and voted Democratic tickets – I think it was the latter, though the Flag will doubtless say it was the former. But these Democrats didn’t stay away – you never catch a Democrat staying away from an election. The grand end and aim of his life is to vote or be voted for, and he accommodates to circumstances and does one just as cheerfully as he does the other.

    The only man I ever knew who could counteract this passion on the part of Democrats for voting, was Robert Roach, carpenter of the steamer Aleck Scott, “plying to and from St. Louis to New Orleans and back,” as her advertisement sometimes read. The Democrats generally came up as deck passengers from New Or leans, and the yellow fever used to snatch them right and left – eight or nine a day for the first six or eight hundred miles; consequently Roach would have a lot on hand to “plant” every time the boat landed to wood – “plant” was Roach’s word. One day as Roach was superintending a burial the Captain came up and said:

    “God bless my soul, Roach, what do you mean by shoving a corpse into a hole in the hill-side in this barbarous way, face down and its feet sticking out?”

    “I always plant them Democrats in that manner, sir, because, damn their souls, if you plant ’em any other way they’ll dig out and vote the first time there’s an election – but look at that fellow, now – you put ’em in head first and face down and the more they dig the deeper they’ll go into the hill.”

    In my opinion, if we do not get Roach to superintend our cemeteries, enough Democrats will dig out at the next election to carry their entire ticket.

    Red Flag – according to a blog entry by Colonel Allen West, President Trump is allowing a known Palestinian Terrorist entry to our country to meet with him next week. Not sure what this is about, but it reminds me of something Obama would do. Thoughts?



    • dilonsfo says:

      If President Trump, who is as hardlined as they get against terrorist and terrorism, has decided that he wants this man in for talks…then he has a purpose for it. I don’t know why and neither does Colonel West nor other pundits. I trust that President Trump knows what he wants. Second guessing President Trump has not worked out well for anyone so far.

      It’s wonderful! Trump has been dealing with the sharks of the world for decades. Some have been killers. He’s literally a genius and he’s famous for his ability to read people. As Sundance has noted, some amazing moves are going on in the ME right now. Slot of pieces are in play. The Palestinian President, Abbas’s just said he believed with Trump he believed peace might really be possible! Remember Trump literally wrote the Art of the Deal. He LOVES deal making. From the start he’s said negotiating the end of the Palestinian, Israeli conflict and bringing peace to the ME would be the biggest deal in the world. He added he’d really like to take a crack at it. Now he is. West seems very decent but he’s not very bright. Certainly not an outside the box thinker. Hope he doesn’t concern troll support away from our President.

    Did anybody consider the following conjecture:

    What IF petty, infantile, toxic little tyrant Barry Hussy Soetero felt such an extraordinary animosity towards Donald Trump, the man who challenged him many many times and seriously unsettled him at least a few times, what IF the Kenyan Piglet actually had Mr. Trump under surveillance even long before, longer than we think, Mr. Trump declared his candidacy?

    What IF the cannibal Indonesian SHITzu actually tried to get revenge on Mr. Trump based on animosity going back to 2011 or 2012?

    What IF helping the Pedophiles’ Favorite Lawyer, Hillary Rotten Clinton’s flailing campaign was just a byproduct of a vengeful, illegal enterprise started long before that was the case?

    I am not saying I am sure, it’s just a hypothesis worth considering.

  17. Taking about revenge,G.Webb segment 3 today talks about Pakistani spy network targeting US miltary as revenge(someone has all that gov. hacked data) and also using their placed doctors giving cancer creating drugs for scam and poisoning youth with extremely lethal opioids. He ties in the Gulen asylum,Texan Javed Riceland hospital and Hilary fund raising linking it all back to a Detroit hub. Video is 13.12 min. long but cue it at 8 min. to get condensed version if interested, I find it bone-chilling.

    Has anyone heard whatever happened to that beauty queen Trump supporter who probably had terminal cancer? She showed up at a couple of his rallies and he so graciously acknowledged her.


    • SharonKinDC says:

      Not cancer, iirc. Some sort of weird thing where her heart is like a 95 yo… and whatever causes it would do the same if she had a replacement heart. Miss Wisconsin, iirc.


      • missmarple2 says:

        It’s something in the part of her brain which controls her heart activity. That’s why a transplant won’t do any good.

        I had never heard of such a thing. It was discussed on Sean Hannity’s show, I think.

    So I just read that his schedule for Saturday was just being in Washington with nothing public on his schedule. He landed here at the Bedford County Airport on Marine One with his entourage and was here for only 20 minutes. No one was allowed closer than the parking lot so they got one photo from that distance. When asked what his destination was, he gave no response. That’s Bedford County PA, on April 1st.
