Hillary’s private email server was secure… but the DNC, the State Department, US Military, the IRS, Anthem, Home Depot, JP Morgan Chase and the White House servers are breached continually by “suspected Russian hackers”, according to the FBI? In fact, the breaches go unnoticed for upwards of a year before our top notch, super-duper, cyber security officials wake up…
How much do these security individuals make? Upwards of $350,000.
Who are the hackers?
Guccifer, the hacker who claimed to have breached Hillary, Colin Powell, members of the Council on Foreign Relations, and a host of prominent officials, had an IP address that was tracked to Russia. Gasp, the FBI declared it was a Russian Hack Attack! But he wasn’t Russian and he had no computer background whatsoever, he learned his trade from the Internet and sat in a remote town of Romania where he lived. So much for Intel.
Extradited to the US, he is supposedly languishing in Alexandria City Jail in Virginia. Although I imagine his services as a hacker are a negotiating talent, and his days will soon be fraught with champagne and caviar.
Guccifer 2.0 claims to be the newest DNC hacker with a physical address of “Eastern Europe”. So why does the media and the White House continually assert the blame on Russia? Because it is a bit embarrassing to admit that your multi-million dollar security system was breached by a solitary individual just messing around for fun on a laptop. Pointing the finger at the Chinese government or the Russian government and decrying whimpers of ‘they were incredibly sophisticated’ sounds much more threatening and stirs up controversy and a ‘real enemy’. Bahhhh.
The ‘hackers of the DNC’ had apparently been inside with full access for a year – or more. That’s pretty embarrassing. They breached financial data and emails. They made a mockery of the Democrat Party and their intense obsession with money, and they exposed the blatant hypocrisy of their arrogance.
DNC officials and the Hillary redirecting blame will probably surface in the next batch of hacked emails.
The FBI has actually made no allegation that the cyber attack came from Russia, the only source of this allegation is from – ta-da…Hillary. But the fact of the matter is, everyone is spying and hacking on everyone, because that’s what we do! No one is secure, and no one is free of hackers. Period.
It reminds me of the stories my dad used to tell me about his days in East Berlin before the Wall when he was in Defense Intelligence. They routinely held ‘spook parties’. Spooks from every country, Britain, France, Australia, Germany, Russia, US, Canada, etc… would attend these soirees and pretend they didn’t know everyone was a spook. Everyone would chit-chat and wait for the one who couldn’t hold his liquor to lose his tongue. Having a flair for humor, my dad took to wearing a long black cape, a black fedora, and sport his faithful weapon – a riding crop. Of course, his gun was always a part of his attire as well.
Cyber hacking has become so commonplace, so easy, so ho-hum, and everyone is hacking each other. Obama’s plan to assert sanctions on countries who hack would be hypocrisy at its finest given we would have to sanction – ourselves.
A better plan? Find some decent Eastern European Romanians willing to work for the US government at ¼ of the going rate because it would seem they are better than the ‘experts’ being employed now.
Plan B? Don’t use your email account for slanderous juvenile memos. Create a new form of communication. Use code. And don’t be so incredibly stupid. Because everything you say – will be hacked, especially if you are in any way connected to the government, politics, and political donations. It’s a fools world. And if being within inches of the President makes you feel all warm and fuzzy? You really need a life…
Feels like junior high school at its finest.
