Russian Hacking – No Big Deal

People watch voting results at Hillary Clinton’s election night event at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center November 8, 2016 in New York City.

For the last few months, we have heard over and over that the Russians interfered in the recent presidential election in favor of Trump and to defeat Clinton.

The so-called “intelligence community” was caught off guard and became confused as what to make of this hacking.

The hacking of information passed on to Wikileaks (always of questionable background and loyalty, Russian or Israeli who knows?) revealed the shenanigans going on inside the DNC, and how the DNC was rigging and interfering in the primaries in favor of Clinton, and mustering all of its resources to defeat the much better, certainly potentially victorious candidate Bernie Sanders.

The Russian hacking was not directed toward or against any of the US government organizations or agencies, but against one of the political parties, and in this case, the Democratic Party which was doing all it could to get Hilary to be the nominee and get elected.

Now in the last few days, the major media has been on the back of President-Elect Donald Trump breathing hot air – even trying to intimidate him like CNN tried to do – to admit that the Russians hacked the DNC in his favor, and as such deny him the legitimacy of the US Presidency. This is what the main media campaign now, from the New York Times to the Washington Post even to the Huffington Post, is all about.

The main media simply forgot that the hacking was not a direct interference in the election or in any way affected the election process or the machines, etc.

It only revealed the wrong doings of the DNC, and I doubt it if it changed the minds of enough voters to swing the election in favor of Clinton. She forgot how much money the US put in support of Putin’s opponent. The man is getting even with her – nothing wrong with that.

Clinton and the DNC, with a billion from rich Zionist and Israeli billionaires, have the needed funds to use the most sophisticated ADA, the super and complex computer using algorithm named after the 19th-century feminist mathematician Ada, Countess of Lovelace.

This computer was performing 400,000 simulations a day and making the decisions for Clinton staff, as if going out to the streets of Detroit was too old-fashioned.

Now that Donald Trump won the election fair and square, so many of the liberal media and members of the Democratic Party establishment are crying foul. That Clinton won 3 million more votes than Trump.

Yes, she won these 3 million extra votes, but she did not win by the rules set for the presidential election and the Electoral System, which is designed to ensure that small and medium size states are not overwhelmed by the big states like New York and California, and of course this issue goes back to the days of Southern slavery.

Now the “intelligence community” which ironically failed to detect this hacking when it took place, combined with a mad dog media are after Donald Trump, by trying to demonize him and strip him of his legitimacy as president of the US. Of course, let us not forget that the “birther” issue and the de-legitimization of President Barack Obama were the issues that propelled Trump to the national scene.


What Goes Round Comes Round

Now enough of Clinton, and Trump, and back to the issue of hacking and interference in elections. The US political scientist Dov Levin who kept track of US interference in international elections calculated” the two powers interfered in 117 elections around the world from 1964 to 2000- an average of one in every nine competitive elections”.

While the Soviet Union occupied many countries and eliminated any form of democracy, let alone elections, the US is notorious for the numbers of elections it hacked and rigged, and even incited murder to achieve its goals.

The United States, through its Central Intelligence Agency, has been involved in many attempted and successful coups, and in overthrowing regimes and assisting in the murder of foreign leaders. The U.S. spent tens of millions of dollars propping up political parties that favor the US.

Pinochet and Kissinger

Of course, the most and well known successful interference was the overthrow of the democratically elected Iranian Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh in 1953, replacing him with the one of the most ruthless, criminal kleptomaniac monarchs, the Shah, who in turn was thrown out by a popular revolt that brought Khomeini and his revolutionary guards to power.

One has to imagine what kind of Iran we would have had, if the US had not overthrown Mossadegh. Would we have had Khomeini? I doubt it.

Then there was the cold-blooded murder of the leftist leader of the Congo, Patrice Lumumba in 1964, when the US supported and supplied weapons to the Black opposition supported by colonial Belgium and the US, which ended in the downing the plane carrying the UN secretary general Dag Hammarskjöld, who was killed along with everyone on board.

Of course Latin and Central America was the US favorite game of toppling regimes. In 1954 the US unseated the democratically elected president of Guatemala Jacob Arbenz in favor of United Brand, followed by other countries in Central America, which became known as the Banana Republics.

Not so distant was the assassination of a freely elected president of Chile, Salvador Allende, assassinated and killed by General Augusto Pinchot, with generous funding from the US. The war criminal Kissinger boasted saying “we don’t see why we need to stand by and watch a country go Communist due to the irresponsibility of its own people.” Kissinger is the godfather of Clinton’s foreign policy.

The US reached out as far as Vietnam and the Philippine with the CIA operative running the successful campaign of the Philippine president Ramon Magsaysay.

Even Japan did not escape US interference with the generous funding of the center-right Liberal Democratic Party that secretly received generous funding from the early 50’s to the late 60s.

In Europe, the story was no different. The US government spent millions of dollars “ we had bags of money that we delivered to selected politicians to defray their political expenses, their campaign expenses for pamphlets and posters” says F. Mark Wyatt who was the agent in charge in Italy and in support of the Christian Democrats against Italy’s Communist Party.

Clinton as Secretary of State was so active in regime change in Haiti and in Honduras, and this was the subject of a major dispute between Clinton and Bernie Sanders during the primary campaign, with Sanders making the policy statement that “The US should be working with governments around the world, not get involved in regime change.”

Regime change we did — in the Ukraine where the US under the direction of the US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland allegedly spent over $2 billion in regime change to overthrow Vicktor Yanukovych importing hundreds of Israel former IDF to create chaos in Kiev, and that they did.

In the Middle East, the US was no different. On January 25, 2006, Hamas won fair and square against the corrupt incompetent Fatah of Mahmoud Abbas in the Second Palestinian Legislative Council winning 74 seats to Fatah 45 seats.

That did not suit Abbas, Israel, Jordan and Egypt and of course the US. Even though the election was fair and square by all international counts.

In coordination with Mahmoud Abbas, Israel began to round up members of Hamas arresting 450 members placing them under indefinite “administrative detention” which means no cause, no court, no hearing simply jail time and arresting 15 members of the elected Hamas members, prompting the Cater Center to complain “ they are guilty of nothing more than winning a parliamentary seat in an open and honest election.

The Quartet assigned to bring about peace between Israel and the Palestinians decided to put sanction on the newly elected government, the US withheld funds, and Israel withheld collected tax revenue. More troublesome, Abbas who had no legitimacy whatsoever, since his term expired a long time ago, decided on his own to unilaterally change the entire electoral system to favor Fatah.

Soon after, and with Gaza under siege by the Israelis and by the Quartets and Mubarak’s Egypt, Hamas decided to take over Gaza, routing Fatah leaders who looted the Gaza Strip out of hundred of millions; and of course not long after, Israel, with prompting from Abbas, launched two major wars against Gaza that left over 10,000 dead and over 50,000 homes, hospitals and schools destroyed.

Well, the US should feel lucky, because at least no one was killed or murdered, no US department was hacked, and the only issue is that Clinton lost the election. Is that bad for the country? No?

  1. Orthodox Joos with their sidelocks are one of the greatest opponents against Israel but you will never find that in MSM. It is just a believesystem with no evidence of truth and everyone may believe what they want but they abuses it to suppress and suck dry others. I don´t hate the people but their evil deeds justified by them through a believe system. If it were peaceful nobody would hinder them to live in their phantasy world.

  4. Salam Sami… thanks for the point of view.
    If you have not yet seen member of the Security Council, exCIA Station Chief John Stockwell’s Youtube video “CIA’s war on humans”. Please look it up. It is amazing the amount of evil human beings are capable of. He coined it as “the war on the Third World”, a war only against all the countries that could not hurt the US. Not the USSR because it could hurt the US. He adds, in the 40+ years of CIA history they have had 3,000 major operations and 10,000 minor operation,”everyone illegal, everyone disruptive of the lives and societies of other people and many are bloody and gory beyond comprehension… the CIA continues to fund death squads… [ISIS comes to mind]” He goes on to say that the best minds he has been working with came up with the number of victims of this 40 year war to be six million people from the third world who could never have hurt America.
    Anyone for holocaust museum for the victims of the CIA? Is that what spreading democracy in our name means?

  5. Mr. Jadallah, Thank you for your excellent commentary which shines the light on the bigger picture that the mainstream “presstitutes” prefer to keep under wraps so they can continue their unrelenting, egregious attacks on the character of President-elect Donald Trump.

    It is also quite revealing to see John McCain & Lindsay Graham do their “tap dance” on behalf of their masters.

  6. As the article mentions, the hacking information was passed to Wikileaks. That being said, Julian Assange was asked if he could confirm to Americans 1000% that Russia is not responsible for the hack and he reconfirmed that the source is not Russia, nor any other nation state. This confirms the opinion of John Mcaffe, who said this is not the work of any nation state and was most likely some kid who downloaded the 1.5 year old software. Shame on the MSM for endlessly sensationalizing unsubstantiated information that carries serious implications. But I guess that’s what they’ve always done. They’ve been talking about it for so long, at this point it’s time to either put up, or shut up. At this point, they need to either show whatever “evidence” they claim to have, or shut up about it and stop speculating. Until I see evidence, these claims of Russian hacking are just the most recent plague of politically motivated, state-sponsored propaganda.
