Russian Hackers Who Infiltrated DNC in 2016 Just Hacked Biden-Linked Burisma

Putin is back at it, hoping to again neuter Americans’ democracy.

Published

on

Mother Russia is sticking her nose back into America’s business yet again, this time rather blatantly attempting to influence yet another American election.

During the 2016 presidential election, the Kremlin waged a fairly serious war on American democracy, with their battles being fought on the fertile, young battlefields of cyberspace.  Not only were Russian hackers implying the tried and true methods of “phishing” and old-fashioned encryption-assault, but Putin’s ploy also included massive farms of online trolls, bots, and provocateurs who flooded social media with whatever messages the Kremlin wanted to see make headlines in the United States.

Now, as 2020 looms large, the same bad actors within the Russian cyber warfare space are at it again, and they are now presumably targeting Democratic nominee Joe Biden via his son Hunter’s job at Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma.

Russian hackers recently targeted the Ukrainian gas company that was at the center of President Trump’s impeachment — and they succeeded in gaining access to its email accounts, according to California cybersecurity firm Area 1 Security.

The hackers are said to have infiltrated Burisma Holdings months after Trump urged Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who had served on Burisma’s board.

“What we’ve uncovered is that the same Russian cyber actors who targeted the [Democratic National Committee] in 2016 have been actively launching a phishing campaign against employees of Burisma Holdings and its subsidiaries, to try to steal their email usernames and passwords,” Area 1 co-founder Oren Falkowitz tells NPR’s Morning Edition.

Those involved were already infamous for their work in 2016.

The hacking operation was the work of the GRU, the Russian military spy agency, according to Area 1, which has published its findings online. The company says Russian hackers sent seemingly legitimate emails pointing to malicious websites that looked like authentic Burisma sites to try to dupe employees into sharing private login information.

Election interference has been a prevailing political topic in American for the better half of a decade now, and it doesn’t appear as though we’ll be rid of this menace for some time still.

President Trump Employs Backhanded Defense of Bernie After Hillary Attacks Vermont Senator

You know Hillary was in the wrong when her nonsensical interjection has the President defending one of his possible 2020 rivals.

Published

on

There is a war brewing within the Democratic Party in 2020, as the organization attempts to forge its path forward in American culture.

The youth of the party are hellbent on pushing the progressive party hard to the left.  They aren’t afraid of socialism and governmental coddling, likely on account of the fact that they are not yet fully removed from the figurative teat of their parents.  Few have achieved financial independence, and so a complete overhaul of the American economic system is appealing to them.

Standing in the way is the centrist, Democratic Deep State, exemplified by old guard personalities such a former Vice President Joe Biden and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Clinton has been a particularly thorny nuisance, as her choice to not run for President again in 2020 has allowed her to employ a wide range of tactics to attack the party’s radical wing.  Her latest diss was aimed at Vermont Senator and top tier 2020 candidate Bernie Sanders, whom Clinton characterized by stating that “nobody likes him”.

President Trump is now weighing in, blasting Clinton’s unwarranted wisecrack and, in the process, offering a slight, backhanded defense of the democratic socialist from The Green Mountain State.

“When Hillary says nobody likes him, nobody likes her,” Trump told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo during an interview in Davos, Switzerland. “That’s why she lost, nobody liked her.”

“She had every advantage. She had this big machine behind her. She had Obama, she had everybody behind her. And it wasn’t even close,” Trump continued. “She’s the one that people don’t like. If I had my choice in terms of personality, I might take him over her. But I probably would take neither.”

Trump would undoubtedly prefer to face Sanders in the 2020 election, at least as opposed to former VP Joe Biden, as Bernie’s penchant for socialism makes for an easier target than Biden’s shifting centrism.

Hillary Clinton Sued for Defamation by 2020 Long-Shot Tulsi Gabbard

Clinton’s meddling in the 2020 election has not gone unnoticed.

Published

on

Hillary Clinton is a stubborn barnacle on the side of the Democratic dinghy, that’s certain.

The former Secretary of State has been a controversial figure in the progressive party for years now.  Her infamous collusion with the DNC led to the rigging of the 2016 primaries against Bernie Sanders – a fact revealed by the work of whistleblower organization Wikileaks.  This, in turn, caused a mass exodus of young voters from the Democratic Party itself, and likely contributed to the election of Donald Trump…something that a great deal of Democrats haven’t yet forgiven her for.

Clinton seemed oblivious to animosity, however, and somehow felt it pertinent to interject herself into the 2020 election cycle, this time telling the world that Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard was being “groomed” by the Russians to spoil the Democratic primary.

Gabbard isn’t taking the diss lying down.

Tulsi Gabbard filed a defamation lawsuit against Hillary Clinton on Wednesday, alleging the former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee “lied” about the Hawaii congresswoman’s ties to Russia during a 2019 interview.

The lawsuit stems from an October 2019 interview in which Clinton said that a Democrat running in the presidential primary was being groomed to run as a third-party candidate and was a favorite of the Russians.

“I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said, speaking on a podcast with former Obama adviser David Plouffe. “She’s the favorite of the Russians.”

And while Gabbard is unlikely to win the case, the specifics of the lawsuit show that she certainly means business.

The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in federal court in the Southern District of New York, says Gabbard has suffered damages that are “estimated to exceed $50 million.” She is seeking unspecified compensation and the prevention of a further spread of the comments. Clinton spokesman Merrill responded to the lawsuit by calling it “ridiculous.”

Hillary Clinton has yet to let up, either, just days ago attacking Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in the press, initiating that “nobody likes him”, among other things.

Creepy Joe Biden Calls Computer Game Developers ‘Little Creeps’ Who Teach Kids ‘How to Kill’

If you like computer games, Joe Biden thinks you are either a “creep” who teaches people “how to kill” or you are too stupid to understand.

Published

If you like computer games, Joe Biden thinks you are either a “creep” who teaches people “how to kill” or you are too stupid to understand what you are doing by playing them.

Nice, huh?

Biden’s latest attack on video games came during his recent appearance before the New York Times editorial board.

The former vice president went on the attack after being asked about how Silicon Valley changed during his time as Barack Obama’s second in command.

“And you may recall, the criticism I got for meeting with the leaders in Silicon Valley, when I was trying to work out an agreement dealing with them protecting intellectual property for artists in the United States of America,” Biden bloviated.

Then he added, “And at one point, one of the little creeps sitting around that table, who was a multi- — close to a billionaire — who told me he was an artist because he was able to come up with games to teach you how to kill people.”

Just what “little creep” Slow-Joe was talking about, he did not say. But Kotaku thinks it was probably EA’s then-CEO John Riccitiello.

The loudmouthed Biden went on saying, “And then one of these righteous people said to me that, you know, ‘We are the economic engine of America. We are the ones.’ And fortunately, I had done a little homework before I went and I said, you know, I find it fascinating,”

He then said, “As I added up the seven outfits, everyone’s there but Microsoft. I said, you have fewer people on your payroll than all the losses that General Motors just faced in the last quarter, of employees. So don’t lecture me about how you’ve created all this employment.. The point is, there’s an arrogance about it, an overwhelming arrogance that we are, we are the ones. We can do what we want to do. I disagree.”

This is not the first time Biden has targeted video games. Back in 2013 he said he wanted charge an extra tax on games he felt were violent.

So, tell me, all you liberal tech bros. Are you going just sit around and take this crap from aged, creepy Joe?

Bombshell Reports Links Warren Family Member to Iranian Regime

Will this revelation sink Warren’s polling ahead of Iowa?

Published

on

Democrats currently vying for the 2020 nomination have found themselves under the microscope as of late, as the nation will soon turn to the Iowa caucuses to get a better idea of where the party stands.

This sudden uptick in scrutiny has sent many candidates scrambling, particularly Bernie Sanders, who has felt the full brunt of the Democratic establishment out to get him.  Just this week he was trashed by both the New York Times for being old and unhealthy, and by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton because “no one likes him“.

Now, another of the top tier 2020 Democrats is being targeted, this time in a book that makes some fairly incredible claims.

Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) son-in-law, with whom she is close, has troubling ties to the Iranian regime, according to a new book by Peter Schweizer.

The book, Profiles in Corruption, reveals progressive leaders’ little-known ties to corrupt businesses and governments and discusses the Massachusetts senator in a chapter.

The chapter details the business deals of Warren’s son-in-law, Sushil Tyagi, who is married to her daughter, Amelia. Tyagi was born in India but moved to the United States, where he met Amelia while they were both pursuing MBAs at Wharton Business School.

Here’s where things get alarming:

Since his marriage into the Warren family, Tyagi “has been involved in a series of curious—even troubling—business ventures around the world,” Schweizer writes.

Tyagi runs Tricolor Films, and in 2008, produced a film called The Song of Sparrows, directed by Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi.

The film was described as Majidi’s “most religious” and is about a man who is fired from his job on an ostrich farm, moves to the big city and becomes a motorcycle taxi driver, and soon becomes consumed with his passengers’ lives and is swept up in a world of greed. It is his family that help him restore his “caring and generous nature,” according to a film synopsis.

Tyagi was listed as the film’s sole producer on a New York Times page, in credits which have now been deleted. A look back at the page’s archive revealed that the film was funded by the Iranian government agency that is overseen by Iranian propagandists.

Warren is currently polling over 17% in Iowa; good enough to put the Massachusetts Senator in second place behind former Vice President Joe Biden in the Hawkeye State.

This latest controversy could change that. .

Dem Deep State Targets Bernie Again as Hillary Says ‘No One Likes Him’

The progressive establishment is tipping their hand, proving to the world they are working together to again spoil Sanders’ chances at the nomination.

Published

on

The Democrats really do not want Bernie Sanders to win the 2020 nomination, that much is clear.

With the Iowa caucuses only a scant few days away, the Democrats are pulling out all the stops in order to steer their own primary in whatever direction their upper echelon decides.  In the case of 2020, it has become abundantly clear that this Democratic Deep State is rooting for former Vice President Joe Biden to ascend to the nomination, with many believing that he is the only candidate with the centrist chops to snatch Midwestern moderates away from Donald Trump in the general election.

This runs counter to the trends within the party itself, however, as precocious and bright-eyed freshman Congresswomen such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar push a far more radical agenda, backed by the glut of millennial voters that the Democrats continue to court.

Bernie Sanders represents this wing of the party, putting him in the crosshairs of the progressive establishment.  The latest pot shot taken at the Vermont Senator comes from Hillary Clinton, who worked with the DNC to rig the 2016 primary against him.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter about “Hillary,” the new Hulu documentary series on her life, Hillary Clinton bashes 2020 Democratic contender Bernie Sanders, building on what had already been a news cycle filled with bad press for Sanders in advance of the Iowa caucuses.

“He was in Congress for years,” Clinton says in an excerpt from the documentary. “He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”

When asked by The Hollywood Reporter if that statement still holds, Clinton said, “Yes, it does.”

Over the last few days, Sanders has been trashed by the New York Times as well, who lamented that his age and health are of grave concern at this stage in the election.

Furthermore, President Trump issued a tweet promoting a conspiracy theory that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was withholding the articles of impeachment from the Senate in order to keep Bernie from campaigning in Iowa, seeing as his legislative duties during the impeachment trial will force him to remain in Washington while Biden blitzes the Hawkeye State.

NYT Trashes Sanders Days After Anti-Bernie Conspiracy Theories Make Headlines

The Bernie Bros are undoubtedly putting on their tinfoil hats as we speak.

Published

on

Supporters of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential run aren’t necessarily known for their calm and collected demeanor.  They are, after all, following a self-described “revolutionary” who espouses a doctrine of democratic socialism.

Sanders’ followers are impassioned, to put it lightly, and any perceived slight against their candidate can be fodder for the paranoid and conspiratorial among them.

Last week, one such theory made headlines as the Bernie Bros openly expressed concern that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s withholding of the articles of impeachment from the Senate was timed to damage Sanders’ opportunities to campaign in Iowa.  As a sitting Senator, Bernie will be required to be present in the nation’s capitol throughout the process, with just over two weeks left until the first votes are cast in The Hawkeye State.

Some believed that this was a purposeful move by the Democratic Deep State in order to bolster the chances of moderate Democratic candidate Joe Biden, who has no such obligations in The Beltway.

Sanders will again be forced to roll with the punches this week, as the New York Times have now taken aim at the 2020 hopeful.

The Times officially endorsed both Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) on Sunday. While the editorial board commended Sanders for his decades of “advocating revolutionary change” and noted that many of his ideas, like universal health care and paid family leave, are now embraced in the mainstream Democrat Party, the Times demonstrated concern about his age and health:

Mr. Sanders would be 79 when he assumed office, and after an October heart attack, his health is a serious concern. Then, there’s how Mr. Sanders approaches politics. He boasts that compromise is anathema to him. Only his prescriptions can be the right ones, even though most are overly rigid, untested and divisive. He promises that once in office, a groundswell of support will emerge to push through his agenda. Three years into the Trump administration, we see little advantage to exchanging one over-promising, divisive figure in Washington for another.

“Good news, then, that Elizabeth Warren has emerged as a standard-bearer for the Democratic left,” the Times added, praising her as a “gifted storyteller.”

Those who’ve already fallen under the spell of the anti-Bernie conspiracy theories will likely see this latest affront to their work as nothing more than additional “establishment” attacks on their revolutionary.

How Did Five of Joe Biden’s Family Members Become Millionaires from His Political Career?

Hunter is not the only Biden to become filthy rich on Joe’s name. It seems that his entire family has become rich using Joe’s name.

Published

on

Former Vice President Joe Biden says there is absolutely nothing wrong with his son cashing in on daddy’s name to make millions in Ukraine. But Hunter is not the only Biden to become filthy rich on Joe’s name. It seems that his entire family has become rich using Joe’s name for secret, lucrative, backroom deals.

According to a report at the New York Post, at least five members of Biden’s family have become super rich trading on the Biden name. As the article notes, “Joe’s son Hunter, son-in-law Howard, brothers James and Frank, and sister Valerie,” have all become extra rich despite having no actual skills to benefit who they were being paid by.

Author Peter Schweizer notes that Joe has continually claimed that he has never talked to his son, Hunter, of any of his family about the lucrative deals they keep finding. This is clearly an outright lie.

Joe Biden’s younger brother, James, for instance, was handed one lucrative position after another despite having no training or skills to earn the positions. Why did James get all this attention? Why, because he was finance chair for a Senator, that’s why.

Joe’s son, Hunter, of course, is already notorious for having the amazing luck (that is sarcasm) to accidentally fall into a job at a Ukraine energy company where he made millions quite despite the fact that he had absolutely no training or education in the field of energy.

Schweizer goes on with more details on the terribly lucky accidents that left Biden’s relatives falling into multi-million-dollar deals that made them super rich despite their complete lack of qualification for the jobs… except for being a Biden relative.

The revelations in the Post article are from Schweizer’s new book, Profiles in Corruption.

Much to the left’s dismay, the highly anticipated investigative bombshell book hit #1 on Amazon last week.

As Breitbart News Explained:

Authored by Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President and Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer, Profiles in Corruption is said to contain explosive revelations on leading progressives, including Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Sherrod Brown, Eric Garcetti, Amy Klobuchar, and others. As Breitbart News reported on Thursday, sources close to the publisher say the book’s research findings will “upend official Washington.” Among these are new reporting about how five members of the Biden family—the “Biden Five”—siphoned “tens of millions of dollars” in taxpayer money and guaranteed loans. Hunter Biden is just “the tip of the iceberg,” said the source.

Democrats are corruption personified.
