Here Comes Wikigate 2: NYT Claims Russian Hackers Successfully "Breached" Burisma

“Now we know that Vladimir Putin also sees Joe Biden as a threat…”

Color us skeptical, alt-right, conspiracy-wonk, Putin-puppets; but the transparency and timing of tonight’s “bombshell” report from The New York Times of an ‘alleged’ hacking by ‘allegedly’ Russian hackers of Burisma – the Ukrainian energy firm that VP Biden’s crack-smoking, energy-ignorant son was paid $50,000 per month as a board member – reeks so strongly of foundational narrative-building for something “embarrassing” that is coming, it is stunning just how dumb the deep state must think the American public really is. Actually, maybe not all that stunning.

According to Area 1, the Silicon Valley security firm that detected the hacking, Russian hackers from a military intelligence unit known formerly as the G.R.U., and to private researchers by the alias “Fancy Bear,” used so-called phishing emails that appear designed to steal usernames and passwords, to gain access to Burisma’s network.

Oren Falkowitz, a co-founder of Area 1, and previously a hacker at the National Security Agency, proclaimed in the report that “the attacks were successful,” even though it is unknown what the alleged hackers were attempting to discover.

The timing of the Russian campaign mirrors the G.R.U. hacks we saw in 2016 against the D.N.C. and John Podesta,” the Clinton campaign chairman, Mr. Falkowitz said.

“Once again, they are stealing email credentials, in what we can only assume is a repeat of Russian interference in the last election.”

As The Mercury News reported, over the summer, Area 1 persuaded the Federal Election Commission to allow it to provide low-cost services to political campaigns, which would typically be a violation of rules designed to prevent businesses from currying political favor.

Additionally, and coming as no surprise to many, Mr. Falkowitz is a significant donor to Democrats; and even more intriguing, the company’s CSO – Blacke Darche – also worked at the NSA and most notably, Crowdstrike

Repeat the lie often enough and soon it becomes the truth.

Shame the masses believe everything and anything they are told.

Shucks, Even though it’s just as likely a false flag hack, I’d be disappointed if they didn’t try to hack Burisma. Who knows what bodies lay buried there? Amongst civilized folks, it’s called investigative journalism I believe.

Besides, any self-respecting hacker can easily make a hack appear from anywhere, so why wouldn’t the Russians as well? Let’s just say, anyone attempting a hack into Burisma from anywhere and for whatever purpose would automatically be attributed to Russia, simply because. That’s just how America’s crackerjack security detectives work nowadays.

Americans (nay, the World) have an inalienable right to know what its politicians may have been and/or are up to, no matter the source.

Anything less it unacceptable. The situation seems currently to be that uncovering any potential malfeasance by Biden(s) (or whoever) is considered an attack on America’s democracy itself. This is standing logic on its head. No wonder the country is suffering from dizzy spells.

Meanwhile, San Francisco is still waiting for Nanzi to come and pick up the human faeces lining the streets. Do Dems actually do any work that might actually benefit the nation? Or just blame Russia for absolutely everything? With the US public paying for it all.

Democrats, Republicans, two faces of the same conniving coin of self-anointed exceptionalism.

And don’t think a good percentage of us Americans don’t understand it. Was just joking with my local banker and she even blurted out with furrowed brow that we’re getting way too big for our britches. Trump’s just a crude reminder of the status quo. If and when the time comes for real change, I doubt it’ll be with the public’s kicking and screaming over it.

Very important documentary on Biden’s activities in Ukraine:
https://consortiumnews.com/2020/01/13/documentary-released-monday-sheds-new-light-on-
A new documentary by Olivier Berruyer, editor of the website les-crises.fr, released in conjunction with Consortium News on Monday, sorts out the complicated scandal and the role Joe Biden played in it. Already blocked on facebook, youtube etc this needs to be passed around.

It is the total and unadulterated contempt the elites and their paid motherfuckers have for the sheeple. Nothing is beyond the pale. Lies upon lies, outrage upon outrage, it is the rule of dipshits over dimwits.
