Now that the election in the USA is over, it's worth looking back on that hacking meme. And it is "safe" to do so now, aside from the hysteria that was taking place. As I watched all of it, it struck me as extremely odd that the whole hacking meme seemed disturbingly contrived. We were supposed to believe that "Russia did it," an idea I found ridiculous then and still do. Then, there was the murder of Democratic national committee staffer Seth Rich. Many theorized that he was behind some of the damning leaks to Wikileaks, and there was the usual amount of conspiracy theory that the unfortunate Mr. Rich was yet another victim in the long list of dead bodies that seem to follow the Clintons around; it was another "Arkancide." Well, I have my doubts about that too (though I certainly don't have any doubts about the criminality and corruption of the Clintons). Why? For the simple reason that "offing people" when in the middle of a presidential campaign would be too risky. Best to wait until after the election, and dump the body in a park in Washington DC and claim it was suicide.
To put it as bluntly as possible, there was an element of theater to all this I found very disturbing; it was all... well, too convenient. The real goal, it seemed to me, was not to favor Darth Hillary or "The Donald," but rather, to work up USA-Russia tensions into a fine frothy lather of hysteria. It looked, if I may put it even more bluntly, very much like the pattern of the alleged postwar Nazi document, The Madrid Circular, that I reviewed in my book The Third Way: create maximum maneuvering room for your merry band of postwar Fascist buddies by maximizing tensions between Russia and the USA. The Clinton-Trump-Putin theater looked and felt too contrived to me.
In that regard, consider the following article shared by G.L.R.:
Mr. G.L.R. drew my attention to these passages, and I pass this focus along to you:
The FSB press release published on July 30 dealt more specifically with the issue of cyberattacks and cyber-espionage. In fact, it reported that the FSB specialists were able to uncover an especially damaging virus program infiltrated into the network of more than 20 organizations on the territory of Russia. These organizations included the Russian government, military, and academic institutions and even the sectors of the Russian military-industrial complex.
The FSB did not comment as to where this malicious software could have come from. It just stated that it resembled the software found in other cyberattacks around the world. In my opinion, the description of the way that the virus infected the victims’ computers and the damage it caused resembled very much the hacks perpetrated in the U.S., both on the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and on Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta. Considering the timing of the release (the end of July), just after the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia was over and the full extent of the U.S. hacks became publicly known, it definitely raises several very significant questions.
First, was this massive hacking of the Russian “critical infrastructure” a retaliation by the U.S. intelligence agencies for the DNC and Podesta hacks allegedly perpetrated by the Russian military intelligence agency (GRU)? And if so, will the hacked emails and information be made publicly available? Will be we soon be reading the embarrassing details of the Russian government and military officials’ undercover dealings?
Or, alternatively, was this perhaps done by a third party which also hacked the DNC and Podesta? Following in the footsteps of the James Bond classic “From Russia, with Love,” is there perhaps a secret (criminal) network which uses the rogue elements of different intelligence communities to amplify the confrontation between the U.S. and Russia? To get the U.S. to blame Russia and, likewise, Russia to blame the U.S. for criminal deeds actually perpetrated by this hidden network. This of course is a mere speculation. But the coincidence of the almost simultaneous cyber-attacks cannot be denied. (Emphasis added)
In other words, while the corporate controlled media in the USSA was howling about Russian hacking of the Clinton campaign and wringing its hands over Russian influence on the election(overlooking, conveniently, Frau Merkel's contributions to Darth Hillary's campaign), Russia itself was being hacked at exactly the same time.
Notably, the FSB(Federalnaya Sluzhba Bezhopaznosmu) is admitting not only the hacks, but their extensive nature, but not indicating any point of origin. We may take this as either the (1) FSB is deliberately withholding the fact that they might have originated in America and inside the US's intelligence community, and it is doing so as another example of restraint until it can deal with the new Trump Administration, or (2) that they don't know, or (3) that they know that its origin is entirely elsewhere, and that they are withholding that information either from fear of the consequences of its exposure, or that exposing it may not actually be believed.
While it is heartening in a certain sense to see that someone else out there besides me suspected that a "third force" - an extraterritorial entity - might have been behind the hacking, I do not dismiss it as "mere speculation." It is speculation to be sure, but speculation with a bit of ground traction and history behind it, for recall from my last book Hidden Finance, Rogue Networks, and Secret Sorcery: 9/11 and the Fascist International, that the Russian economist Dr Tatiana Koryagana stated in Pravda in July 2001, weeks ahead of the 9/11 attacks, that America would be attacked on its own soil by a rogue group, a "global network" with assets in excess of $300 trillion dollars. And the odd statements coming out of Russia since then haven't abated. Sergei Glazyev, as I have pointed out on numerous occasions, stated - not simply rhetorically - that Russia's problem wasn't with the Nazis in Kiev, it was with the Nazis in Washington.
I suspect that when Mr. Putin and Mr. Trump finally meet, that they're going to have a lot to talk about...
See you on the flip side...
