I’ve been having a bit of fun of late with the sneaky Russian mime (that “The Russians hacked my speedometer” image was priceless), not because I think it is a whole lot of nothing (like most liberal outrages, short on substance, long on sanctimony) but because a rather serious threat, both to our own personal security (Hello, Yahoo) and that of the nation has turned into a dog whistle for the perpetually aggrieved malcontents looking for any excuse to rationalize an election loss that was real easy to peel back.
It should not come as a surprise to anyone that nations (North Korea, Iran, China and Russia)that view us as adversaries will not only hack ( for the purposes of gaining intel) but cyber attack, targeting electronic infrastructure for the purposes of disruption. Whether China or Russia is the biggest offender, the point is that we know it is happening, they know we know it is happening, and instead of waging a finger at them (Obama’s preferred method of action) first order of business is prevention. Making sure all systems are secure, then retaliate.
Hannity had an absolutely fascinating interview with Julian Assange last night. Whether sinner or saint, patriot or traitor, good guy or bad, I think Assange provides a valuable service in exposing conduct the players (governmental officials) would prefer hidden and secret. Oh, and the Russians where not the source of the DNC leaks;
I always thought Brennen was a bit of a weasel and we have discussed the dangers of weaponize or politicizing government entities, the IRS/Justice and now the CIA. I mentioned the other day that Brennen needs to put up or shut up and how interesting that after blowing the horn continually, when called to “show what you got”, they back out. Now we learn the Obama knew it was not the Russians (this time) yet he continues with the masquerade.
Some other notable items; pollsters getting it wrong on Brexit (damn Russians again), the impotence of the MSM, and the perfidious relationship between the MSM and the DNC.
Information is power and if that power does reside with the people then exposing those that misuse it for their own benefit, this will only make the republic stronger, making the powerful more accountable.
