Report: Russia Hacked 39 States During Election; Zero Evidence Provided

This is wonderful. We're moving past the stage of Russian hacking into John Podesta's email account, since it has garnered very little traction. Plus, no one can actually prove that the Wikileaks changed votes, just innuendo. All of the 'collusion' the deep state and the left have been trying to pin on Trump just got blown up during Comey's testimony, most likely thanks to Trump's mention of the possibility of tapes. Had Trump not done that, there is a very good chance that Comey would've went all the way with his lies.

Alas, Bloomberg is now reporting, six months after the Presidential elections, that 39 states were hacked by fucking Russians. Here is a delicate snowflake reporting. Check the venom in his cadence and the hatred in his eyes.

Where is the proof, you ponder?

Here it is.

In Illinois, investigators found evidence that cyber intruders tried to delete or alter voter data. The hackers accessed software designed to be used by poll workers on Election Day, and in at least one state accessed a campaign finance database. Details of the wave of attacks, in the summer and fall of 2016, were provided by three people with direct knowledge of the U.S. investigation into the matter. In all, the Russian hackers hit systems in a total of 39 states, one of them said.

There it is, folks. Details of the 'wave of attacks' were provided by 3 people, who have direct knowledge on the matter. Those 3 people, anonymous of course, told Bloomberg that it happened; therefore, it happened.

Bloomberg continues.

The new details, buttressed by a classified National Security Agency document recently disclosed by the Intercept, show the scope of alleged hacking that federal investigators are scrutinizing as they look into whether Trump campaign officials may have colluded in the efforts. But they also paint a worrisome picture for future elections: The newest portrayal of potentially deep vulnerabilities in the U.S.’s patchwork of voting technologies comes less than a week after former FBI Director James Comey warned Congress that Moscow isn’t done meddling.

What details? Did I miss something?

According to this new, groundbreaking report, Russian hackers broke into the systems inside 39 states, but never tried to disrupt the vote. They posit the American warnings were enough to scare the rascals off, or perhaps, according to an anonymous source, the hackers failed to access the voting systems.

So then what are we talking about here?

Ah, the Russians are planning another attack.

One former senior U.S. official expressed concern that the Russians now have three years to build on their knowledge of U.S. voting systems before the next presidential election, and there is every reason to believe they will use what they have learned in future attacks.

 

 

Here is the smoking gun.

An anonymous part-time contractor who works for the state board of elections in Illinois claims hackers accessed the state's voter database and compromised 90,000 records.  In other words, about 0.75% of their 15 million registered voters records had been 'compromised', according to this part-time worker at the board of elections in Illinois. As to how they were compromised, we may never know.

Bloomberg reports the government then used digital signatures to prove it was the Russians, the very same signatures that cybersecurity expert, John McAfee said was complete horseshit.

The signatures were then sent through Homeland Security alerts and other means to every state. Thirty-seven states reported finding traces of the hackers in various systems, according to one of the people familiar with the probe. In two others -- Florida and California -- those traces were found in systems run by a private contractor managing critical election systems.

In Illinois, investigators also found evidence that the hackers tried but failed to alter or delete some information in the database, an attempt that wasn’t previously reported. That suggested more than a mere spying mission and potentially a test run for a disruptive attack, according to the people familiar with the continuing U.S. counterintelligence inquiry.

In summary...

 

In many states, the extent of the Russian infiltration remains unclear. The federal government had no direct authority over state election systems, and some states offered limited cooperation. When then-DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson said last August that the department wanted to declare the systems as national critical infrastructure -- a designation that gives the federal government broader powers to intervene -- Republicans balked. Only after the election did the two sides eventually reach a deal to make the designation.

With all of this evidence of obvious Russian hacking of the elections, how can we simply sit here and let Trump occupy the White House?

Breaking News: Russia hacked 53 States' elections, and also successfully hacked the Papal Conclave to get Pope Francis elected.

This is Macarthism in reverse.

FDR actually had polluted the highest seats of power in Washington with commy or commy sympathizers.

 

But in this case, there is no there there but it just keeps going.

 

It's actually great they keep doing this, just like their election coverage, they will soon have only the looney left as an audience (perhaps already) and be completely ignored as a laughing stock by everyone else.

Let's assume the Russia hack narrative is true. Who was in charge of the National Security apparatus and allowed the 39 hack-crimes to take place?

take a bow ...Obama, Biden, Rice, Clapper, Brennan, Yates, Kerry & Comey

What an incredible load of horsecrap.  The real voter rolls for each of the many counties across this country, NOT COPIES, are not online!  Copies are out there for many and various purposes, but those are not the official rolls.  Bloomberg's story is fake news.

Consider the following question.

How many people, and how many fictitious organizations (including governments) might want to manipulate the behavior of predators-that-be who pose as "government" or large institutions like "central bank" and so forth?

The obvious answer is... at least MILLIONS and probably BILLIONS.

Almost everyone wants handouts and/or special laws and/or special deals with the spewers of funds, powers and favors.

So what?

Well, think about it.  Given the above is obviously true, exactly WHO IS RESPONSIBLE TO ASSURE NOBODY CAN MANIPULATE ELECTIONS AND OTHER INFLUENCES UPON THESE ENORMOUS SOURCES OF POWER ?????

Answer:  The very predators-that-be who act scandalized at the fact that someone MIGHT HAVE TRIED in some lame and ineffective ways to manipulate an election.

Seriously.  Is their official system "the honor system"?  Is their official response to the possibility that everyone who strongly favors democrats or republicans would love to manipulate elections... *TO IMPLEMENT A SYSTEM THAT LETS THEM?*

I mean... seriously!

It is *OBVIOUSLY* a million times easier for some rabid democrat or republican in government to manipulate elections!  After all *THEY* are the people who run the "voter registration system", the actual voting process (which is supposed to assure only certain people can vote and are counted), the vote counting and reporting systems, and so forth!

And these morons who are responsible for implementing a system that *must be secure from manipulation by people actually physically involved in the voting process (and everyone else)* want to pin blame on people thousands of miles away?  Seriously?

THEY ARE BY DEFINITION IRRESPONSIBLE IF THEY IMPLEMENTED A SYSTEM THAT MAKES MANIPULATION POSSIBLE... BY ANYONE.

-----

Therefore, the ENTIRE issue is bogus.

To complain that someone hacked an election is precisely like a bank complaining that someone stole money from their vault... after putting the vault in their parking lot and leaving the door open 24 hours per day.  The fault would be with the bank, not some passerby who sees a pile of cash lying around on shelves in an open vault.

THUS THE ENTIRE ISSUE IS BOGUS.

What is potentially not bogus is... any aspects of the voting system that makes non-eligible voters and votes possible.  And also, "officials" who encourage non-eligible voters and votes could be a problem... and IS a problem, since the previous criminal-in-chief DID in fact encourage this on mass media, and assured criminals who violated the system would not be bothered.

Amazing how people can't even identify utterly bogus claims and issues for what they are... UTTERLY BOGUS.

Bloomberg begins with a 'B', just like Bullshit.  And that is exactly what this article from Bloomberg was.  It smelled so bad that it deserved to be spread on a farmer's field as fertilizer.  It should never have been reproduced and distributed, because it polluted the media.

Time to drag those guys that "witnessed" this in front of congressional hearings for six months.  That's how it's done boys.  Popcorn, please.

Anonymous sources say the Russians hacked our election. It must be so. Therefore, let's start a war with Russia. Imagine how much money we can make.

ya really wishing for that samson option??

Remember, that the WaPo and NYT created this hoax story out of thin air only two weeks after the election.  Had Hillary won there would have been absolutely no such story (even if it were true) because the vote would have been successfully swung for their beloved Hitlary!  Don't the libs yet realize just how big of asses they are in the eyes of the general thinking public?--Retorical question, I know.

technically to assign hacking to sombody is an idiocy.

first thing you do , is to fake MAC, Second you fake your working environment, language keyboard time zone and location.

then you fake IP.

how the hell wants somebody seriously claim, who did what?

I administered a small factory network (1000 IP addresses) and have had a hard time to follow up all traffic.

Either you restrict almost everything, or you just forget it. The middle way to restrict everything and then successively open ports and IPs is so time consuming, that you will throw it after one week away.

 

Morons.

More bullshit fake news!

The pot calling the kettle black

The US and Russia have been meddling in each others elections and internal affairs for decades.

What about when our government using its spy agencies violently overthrows democratically elected goverments

in a "regime change" and then installs coup leaders that are favorable to us.  

The pot calling the kettle black ey? Hypocrisy at its finest!

If they have 3 years so do you, you stupid American.

I heard from a SOURCE that there will be No further responses to ANY Anonymous Question or piece of News, including those labeled as "Relibale", "Insider", etc. no matter it have an obvious answer, its size (small-large) or its face value Importance, No exceptions. Serious Consideration also being given to canceling Daily PRESS Briefings.

(I hope they do halt them. We don't have a real "PRESS" or call it MSMedia anymore)

i guess that's why they arrested 12 clinton democrats in Indianna for voter fraud... because the Russians did it

 

i guess that's why the DNC is going thru a class action law suit for stealing the nomination from Bernie Sanders... because the Russians did it

 

i guess that's why Comey keeps lying under oath... because the Russians did it
