What I Learned From the Intelligence Report on “Russian Hacking”

01/11/201727 Comments

The propaganda surrounding the “Russia hacked the election” meme is, quite frankly, beneath the intelligence of The Corbett Report community. But this hodgepodge of evidence-free assertions is still driving the 24/7 fake news cycle, so today James rolls up his sleeve and shows the latest propaganda for what it is.

    Hello James,

    Do you know why you are on the “establishment” hate list? it is because you are telling the truth 99% of the time, which is the same reason why your viewership is increasing, as people are attracted (mesmerized) by the truth which is out there visible to anyone who “really” want to see it. (that’s why large section of Israeli citizens respect and believe Hassan Nusrralh from Hezbollah more than the Israeli government).

    Now to the topic at hand….

    I am often against people saying “The Jews” are the people behind all the evil in the world, just because few rich people are (possibly) Jewish, and I always say “people” are generally the same. In fact more than 80% of Jewish people are well meaning people who would stand against killing others, even small animals or insects. so, it is not the Jewish faith that’s to blame, but a group of people, some of which are Jewish, but they could also be atheist, Christians or Muslims.

    I believe the same applies to USA government. I believe your report above is true, as i have background in information technology, and the accusation the USA government is throwing at Russia is almost identical to the WMD they accused Iraq with.

    However, I don’t think it is the USA Government that’s doing that (same rule as the Jewish case above), as the majority of Americans i have meet are good people, and the USA Gov is made up of American people entirely.

    So, THE BIG QUESTION that the majority are avoiding on this and other sites… “WHO IS BEHIND THIS?? THE WMD LIE, THE RUSSIAN HACKING LIE?, 9/11?”

    Logic says it is not USA gov!!.. if not USA Gov, then who??

    James,

    Thank you for this presentation and the level of comic relief which at least makes this massive grisly turd tolerable enough to examine. I wish it weren’t even necessary at this point, but I’m going to bookmark this for the sake of conclusively demonstrating to those I still occasionally encounter who aren’t able to fully grasp just how transparently asinine this Russian “hacking” rhetoric is. Well done my friend =]

    In my opinion, the sophistication of Russian state Information Technology (IT) is extremely over-rated when compared to the NSA.

    I’d like to commend James for being determinate enough to wade through all of those “reports” paper pushers at FBI and NSA provide as proof of their hypocrisy.

    Since I’m quite bit under the weather these last days and for future consideration, I’d like to see videos containing material tainted with Kirby imagery and statements to be rated accordingly. Rated “K” for Kirby or maybe rated “V” for vomit inducing. At least put a parental warning before the infringing section of the video. Thanks.

    *US tanks arrive in Germany for NATO mission in Europe*
    http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/01/tanks-arrive-germany-nato-mission-europe-170107141226325.html
    The military deployments came amid increased political tensions between Moscow and Washington, which accuses the Russian government of orchestrating cyber-attacks that allegedly influenced the 2016 US presidential elections and helped Donald Trump win the vote over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

    Local mouthpieces like to insist on this type of information. And even though alajzeera introduces a modicum of scrutiny in their reporting, local media completely sanitize it of any critical observations.

    What I Learned From the Intelligence Report on “Russian Hacking”

    As a result of this report, and the current political climate, the following dots got connected in my brain.

    It is obvious to anyone who looks critically at whats is taking place in the USA, to come to the conclusion that a “cabal” or “Establishment” or “The PowersTSB” are running the show and not USA Gov. I like to call them The Power Base, which appears to be “not” just a collection of people, but an organization that can span 100’s of years with consistency.

    for a long time, the rule was, you do what we want or we kill you, and JFK is just one example of many across the world.

    Today, it is difficult for “The Powerbase” to engage in direct assassination of leading figures in the world, and indirect assassination takes too long to be effective as a tool to drive people to do what they want (poison, radiation, etc)

    So, and even though i think Mr. Trump is a useful idiot, they cannot assassinate him if he does not toe the line (which he seems incapable of doing), so the alternative is Character assassination.

    I think Donald Trump will be the first president who will be assassinated (character assassination) by the “cabal” or the Powerbase. (maybe not the first… if we critically look at Bill Clinton and the Lewinsky case)

    I expect we will see a lot more incidences similar to the Russian Hacking lie coming forward over the next few months. If they stop, then you will know that Mr. Trump has submitted to the Powerbase.

    Another interesting analysis of the “intelligence report” from Eli the Computer Guy
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdxY4QiMecU

    “This report is not about improving firewalls, intrusion detection, or data protection – it is about controlling speech.”

  8. Drazen says:

    It’s very interesting watching all this play out. The way that establishment players are doubling down on the Russia hacking claims when they’re blatantly preposterous, reeks of severe panic and desperation (Not to mention the “Fake News” narrative).

    Even seeing these people try to present this to the public, like the White House press secretary in James’ video, you can see the fear in their eyes and on their faces. From what I sense, it seems that these people are absolutely freaking out over Trump becoming president, yet I don’t necessarily see Trump himself as such a big threat to them.

    I get the feeling that the establishment satanic ritual abuse and pedophilia rackets are on the verge of being exposed to the wider world (Don’t exactly know how or when). With Hillary in the White House it would have been easier to perform damage control when all this breaks out. But with an unknown quantity like Trump there, things become far more unpredictable for these people.

    For good or for bad, Trump seems to be more of his own person, not the type to just follow orders obediently. To me, he’s more of a low level insider. I don’t think he is anywhere near as deeply embedded into these satanic groups as the Bush and Clinton families. (Not a Trump supporter, just had to clarify)

    For now I guess we’ll just watch and see how these things play out.

    • forwardthinking says:

      Many people are seeing trump as the guy who is attempting the defy the establishment and fight back against the anti-Russian propaganda that the neo-cons are pushing so hard. Given how insane this election process was, I wouldn’t be surprised if trump is just a plant to get the public all riled up against Russia. It’s hard to say right now specifically but all of this looks very planned out well in advance

      • forwardthinking says:

        Now that trump has said that he accepts that Russia hacked the election, it’s clear that he’s a part of this smear campaign

        • mkey says:

          When did he state this? Several times he went out of his way to state it may have been Russia but others as well.

          Of course the correct answer would “complete and utter bullshit” but you get what you get.

      • Drazen says:

        Whether this is all planned is something that needs to be considered but I don’t think that’s the case here. Just because events play out a certain way or certain statements are made does not mean that they were all planed on a conscious level beforehand. Life in general is fluid and this is especially true in the political sphere. Backroom maneuvering and political expediency based on specific situations plays a part. Just because certain decisions and statements are made today does not mean that they will apply tomorrow.

        If what I speculate is correct that the news of ritualised child abuse is about to go pop then there is going to be a lot of pressure on the president to do something about it. So a president who has no real loyalty to these people is more likely to throw them under the bus or risk being accused of being one of them.

        But like I said previously, we’ll see how things play out.

    • mkey says:

      That’s a great video lol Pointing his finger and all, well done. Of course, he didn’t cover any new ground with his revelation but I bet he managed to upset some of those sorry sons of bitches. Any fragments of truth are bound to.

    • mkey says:

      Watched the whole thing and have to ask, how many times has Russia been named, especially by the press? How many times have these same press people mentioned the citizens of US? Almost all questions were about Russia 😀 It’s like the soviet scare all over again.

      I remember from the Oliver Stone’s “Untold history of US” he stated that there was a major discrepancy at the time JFK got into office, regarding the level of nuclear armaments. US had a lot more than Soviets did, but there was still a lot pressure to keep pumping more and more stuff out. I wonder what’s the real state of affairs today.

      Even though, probably it’s not that much important, since what’s the difference between having 4000 nukes and 9000 nukes?

    mkey
    I agree! Right out of the gate, Trump goes after the MainStreamMedia.
    I loved seeing this.
    It is uplifting.
    He displayed some well honed leadership qualities in his address.
    I’ll bet people all around the world stood up cheering like at a football game.

    I will eat crow* on some of my skepticism about Trump, at least on this particular “Trump episode”.

    Ok, I agree with James assessments about the latest “Russia hacked the election” propaganda being peddled around, but is it complete propaganda, or is there truth in it, can it really be that far fetched that Putin would dare meddled in the US election given we know Putin favored Trump over Hillary and the reason might be financial

    and then we have The Donald asking Russia to hack Clinton

    So I understand why Trump wants this to go away, and I also understand why the US intelligence agencies and NATO would want to keep this in the news as inaugurations draws near, but why can’t we believe Putin hacked the election in Trumps favor, while also believe US, NATO and Nuland meddled in Russia’s backyard (Ukraine), tit for tat type thing.

    I view this latest propaganda news reel as a way for the US intelligence agencies of warning Trump…basically saying “hey buddy, better not cozy up to Putin to much.”

    5pm Jan 12, 2017 – Reuters
    “FBI investigated over pre-election decisions on Clinton email”
    http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-clinton-idUSKBN14W2NT

    EXCERPTS
    …The Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General said in a statement that its investigation would focus in part on decisions leading up to public statements by FBI Director James Comey regarding the Clinton investigation and whether they may have been based on “improper considerations.”…

    …President-elect Donald Trump, who will be sworn in Jan. 20, will not have the power to dismiss the probe. But federal law permits U.S. presidents to dismiss inspectors general for federal agencies, as long as the president provides Congress a written justification for the removal 30 days in advance…

    …In October, less than two weeks before the Nov. 8 election, Comey sent members of Congress a letter saying the FBI was resuming the investigation because of new emails found on the computer of disgraced former Representative Anthony Weiner, the husband of one of Clinton’s top aides.
    U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch had informed Comey the day before he sent the letter that doing so would conflict with official Justice Department guidance that instructs employees to “never select the timing of investigative steps … for the purpose of affecting any election.”…

    …”Conspicuously absent, though, is any specific reference to the attorney general’s failure to recuse herself from the probe, particularly after her meeting with former President (Bill) Clinton,” said Senator Grassley in a statement….

    Great nugget tucked at the end of the video about nationalizing the elections. The National Infrastructure Protection Plan doesn’t get enough scrutiny, and it is the true flash point where government and the private sector are fusing together.
