Crowdstrike, Under Oath: Actually, We Had No Evidence Russia Stole the DNC Emails

But I thought all of this was proven by science and that only Conspiracy Theorists and Russian Agents would even doubt the DNC-connected firm's story.

Is anyone seeing a pattern yet?

Is Rich Lowry or any of the Apple Genius Bar at National Review or the Corporate Welfare Pseudoright generally seeing the pattern yet?

Or would it reflect too poorly on their supposedly-elevated intellects to admit they've been eager dupes of the left for four fucking years and so they just need to cling to Adam Schiff and just keep repeating the same story?

I kept hearing 'Apple Genius' in Critical Drinker's review of Terminator: Dark Fate in relation to the Terminator in that movie. I looked the term up, assuming it was a cross reference to how the actor looked or something he had done and could not find anything.

What does it refer to? It is driving me a bit mad.

DNC askes for finding of "TEH ROOSKIES" -> "Crowdstrike says TEH ROOSKIES" - >DNC says "SEE!

SPEAK NOW OR HOLD PEEPEE" - > immediately leak to media "WHOLE IC BELIEVES IT WER ROOSKIES".

James Comey told Congress that the FBI asked for access and DNC declined.

Here is Comey telling Sen. Burr in January 2017 that the FBI made "multiple requests at different levels" which were declined.

Shawn Henry of CrowdStrike told Congress he was not aware of the DNC denying any request for access by the FBI related to the server hack.

James Comey told Congress the DNC denied "multiple requests at different levels."

But in all honestly you still can't prove Trump *didn't* collude with Russia.

Because you can't prove a negative. So eventually in the face of all possible evidence, they will admit yes, you caught them using some dirty tactics... but their dirty tactics were in pursuit of a greater justice.

Its interesting to note that the 'Law' the FBI uses to prosecute those who lie to them actually pertains to ANY Federal Officer, not just the FBI.

The President is the chief Law Enforcement Officer, and well as Commander in Chief, so it could be argued that he is, indeed, a Federal Officer.

ergo, an FBI or DOJ Person who lied to the President 'could' be charged under that statute.

Assange pretty much said he got the emails from Seth ... told the story to a FOX reporter, who reported on that ... had some direct connections with Assange (her brother I think) ... then she recanted on her story ... funny how that happens. Did not want to be Seth Riched or Epsteined I suppose.

159 Jimmy Kimmel ran a deceptive video of Mike Pence delivering boxes of PPE to a nursing home in VA. He and another guy were loading the boxes onto a cart and moving them to the door of the nursing home. They'd stack several boxes and went back to the van when Pence started to go for more boxes. The guy helping Pence said to him, "No sir...the rest of those boxes are empty." Pence joked, "Those would have been easier to carry." (or words to that effect). He then closed the van door.

But Kimmel spliced the video to make it look like Pence was delivering empty boxes. And stopped the video just before Pence closed the van's doors.

Of course the media was all over that with tweeting and retweeting thousands of times.

And I was snarking upthread, but it's really not snark. It's also why I'm worried these revelations don't matter much.

I personally know a bunch of Dems who believed this horseshit, but plenty who are perfectly cognizant of the fact that this thing was a frame-up. Only a few are troubled by that. The rest have a perfectly frank attitude, that getting Orangemanbad with a pack of lies and a litany of crimes is absolutely fine. Just politics. Omelettes and eggs.

And I'm not talking about Party people. I'm talking about people who work regular jobs.

This (I estimate fifth-to-quarter of Americans) segment can't be moved. They've abandoned anything beyond tribal morality.

I fear that the other half of the Dem Party who actually believed in this fuckin' fairytale will just elide the entire incident in their minds. Like it never happened.

Or rationalize it by saying the liars and criminals were just too dedicated to our country to wait for the process, and find The Evidence We All Know Exists. Somewhere. Where the missing socks go, I guess.

It's a cult, for real.

If Donald Trump's people were to do these things that Obama's did, I would personally demand his immediate hanging. I expect that AT LEAST two-thirds of Republicans and righty independents - conservatives, libertarians, Constitutionalists, populists, even the most pragmatic in these factions - would join me.

The FBI had nothing on Trump and that made them desperate. Their business plan since Hoover has been to own all the dirt and use that for their own benefit.

Meanwhile, the CIA business plan has been to control foreign policy and Trump was not going to go along with their stupid ideas.

So they both had institutional as well as personal reasons to make shit up. And I get the dems, since Trump was going to upend their plans for open borders and new voters. I just don't get that so many people were on the wrong side for the wrong reasons. Are there so few good men left in the country?

Sad but true. Unless and until there are indictments, with people in court, standing next to lawyers, and there are stories like "Former Obama White House official... " and "Former FBI/DNC official..." where the straights can SEE criminals being treated like criminals by the criminal justice industrial complex, they aren't going to believe any of it.

262 Keep in mind: That is the entire basis of every single Democrat who said, "Russia hacked our election."

That was shorthand for this whole line:
- Russia hacked the DNC server
- Trump asked Russia for dirt on Hillary
- Russia agreed
- Trump became an agent of Russia
- The election was corrupted and fraudulent because Trump colluded with Russia to release some of those emails


I'm pretty sure it was shorthand for a lot of stupid.

One version was the Don Jr meeting where, the story goes, Don Jr was on Trump's errand to solicit dirt on Hillary from Russia.

Another was that Trump got honeytrapped into letting hookers pee on him/the bed and Russia was using the tape to force Trump to do Putin's bidding.

Another was the fever-swamp "Russia hacked the voting machines" garbage that didn't have any basis in anything.

Another was the $100,000.00 Facebook ad buy that somehow turned the election more adeptly than Hillary's $1,000,000,000.00 war chest.

Then of course, was the line that Putin simply favored Trump more than Hillary, and therefore Trump is a bad choice.

Posted by: Axeman at May 08, 2020 03:48 PM (Eicbe)

279 I think the White House needs to do a series of video series.

Series 1: The Timeline. Lay out when things happened. (The FBI knew about the Steele memos (if not the full dossier) at A, opened informal investigations at B, opened formal investigations at C, framed Papadopolous at D, framed Flynn at E, etc., etc., etc.)

Series 2: The People. Lay out who did what. Build on Series 1.

Series 3: The Relationships. Lay out who knew who and when, including general histories of how they got there. Build on Series 1-2.

Series 4: The Coverup. Lay out how these people worked together to break the law and execute a coup, filling in any blanks left from series 1-3.

Series 5: The Press. A deep-dive into the network of leaks and partisanship in the mainstream press, primarily building on Series 1 and Series 4.

I suspect such an exercise would run to about 20-30 hours, and would be worth every frame. With each episode and each series, provide a 90-second executive summary as an adjunct - something easy to digest and incomplete, but that will paint an overall picture.

Well, besides there being sovereign immunity in most claims, the covered issues under professional liability would be handled by a self-insured retention plan (likely up to a very high limit) which would allow another deep stater to pay out whatever they wanted to Flynn to avoid discovery....which would come out of the tax payer's pocket, btw.

Flynn could be a real pain in their ass by filing a summons and complain that included claims that were not covered under the policy, however. That would require all named parties to provide their own defense. But, all it would take is one liberal Obama worshiping judge to throw it out on Summary Judgement.

It's cover for other states (specifically, Pennsylvania). First PA formed a coalition with NY and NJ to tie their recovery to those states (and thus prolong it)...California starts the ball rolling by issuing the executive order. Someone in California will challenge, but it will go to a California Hack's bench.

Then Gov. Wolf in PA will do a similar executive order citing any case in California to back it up...as well as use NY and NJ's slow recovery as a reason to keep the lock down in place in those specific localities in PA that need to be won (Berks, Bucks, Montgomery, Lehigh, Northampton, Philadelphia, Chester...as well as Pittsburgh proper and those suburbs).

That it surely will. That is still not relevant to national politics. California will become shittier and more expensive and make more people leave (which will continue the political decline of the interior west) but it won't make a single difference on election day. California is our most populous and (I think) richest state. And they don't matter nationally one whit because they have a political monoculture that no one needs to court. Their electoral votes go to the Democrat. No need to waste resources on it or try to cater to it - for either party.

449 @409 burnt toast, you hit two of my favorite topics.

1. "Working towards the Fuehrer": There is no evidence Hitler was even aware of the death camps. It was not necessary. His underlings a few layers down in the bureaucracy acted in the spirit of what he would have wanted. I'm certain Lois Lerner had no guidance to do what she did. She just did her duty as she saw it. Same with many of the people involved here. Which leads to . . . .

2. As I've posted many times, there had to have been hundreds of people involved in the domestic surveillance operation. Agents, analysts, technicians, translators, supervisors, clerical and support staff.

I put them in four groups: 1. The true conspirators, who knew the Russia hoax was bogus, but pursued it for political purposes; 2. The easily convinced, who believed it because they were predisposed to believe it; 3. The overly trusting, who believed it because their chain of command told them it was true, and they were not in the habit of asking too many questions; and 4. The careerists, who knew it was BS, but went along with it anyway because Hillary was going to win and no one wanted to be known not to be a team player.

I saw this this morning, and I'll mention it again. The Imperial College was shamed into releasing Neil Ferguson's WuFlu model code. It's on Github now, which a search will find if interested.

Now, this is not the original code -- they hired a team of Microsoft engineers to clean it up and make it presentable. The original is such a mess -- one single source file of 15K lines.

The MS people cleaned that up into something more professional looking. But the cosmetics aside, it's nothing but shit. Utter and complete crap and Linus Torvalds would say.

It is non-deterministic. The exact same input will produce different output. They gloss this over with a "well, it's a stochastic model". Bullshit. Any stochastic model will do random shit, but it should produce the same output for a given seed. You vary that, of course.

But this thing doesn't. It's complete and utter crap.
