Better Late Than Never: Really?

FBI Knew of Russian Hacking Problem for Years
by Political Editors:  A Russian hacking group called Fancy Bear was known to have been targeting three U.S. government officials’ private emails without their knowledge for well over a year. Those officials were the former head of cybersecurity for the U.S. Air Force, an ex-director at the National Security Council and a former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency. News recently surfaced revealing that the FBI was aware these officials were being targeted by the hacking group and yet never bothered to warn them.

          The FBI claims that it “routinely notifies individuals and organizations of potential threat information.” However, former Navy intelligence officer Joe Mazzafro, whose private email was targeted by Fancy Bear in 2015, said, “No one’s ever said to me, ‘Hey Joe, you’ve been targeted by this Russian group.’ That our own security services have not gone out and alerted me — that’s what I find the most disconcerting as a national security professional.
          The knowledge of the hacking group recently come to light when it was reported last month that Fancy Bear worked closely with the Kremlin in hacking and stealing thousands of emails from the Democratic National Committee. However, the group didn’t just focus on Democrats, but also more than 500 other U.S.-based targets including military personnel, diplomats and ex-intelligence workers.
          The Associated Press interviewed more than 80 individuals who had been targeted by Fancy Bear and learned that only two were alerted by the FBI. A few others were notified by the FBI only after their emails had been leaked and published. And there are still individuals whose emails were hacked and leaked who have yet to hear from the FBI. Retired Maj. James Phillips, upon learning he had been hacked, said, “The fact that a reporter told me about DCLeaks kind of makes me sad.” Phillips said that he did not know that his emails were “flapping in the breeze” for two month until a journalist called him to asking for a comment.
          An FBI official blamed the agency’s delay and lack of timely notifications on being overwhelmed by an “almost insurmountable problem.” But Charles Sowell, who formerly work as a senior administrator in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and who was also a victim of Fancy Bear’s hacking, isn’t buying it. Sowell said, “It’s absolutely not OK for them to use an excuse that there’s too much data. Would that hold water if there were a serial killer investigation, and people were calling in tips left and right, and they were holding up their hands and saying, ‘It’s too much’? That’s ridiculous.”
          It seems that former FBI Director James Comey knew about the Russian hacking problem for years and yet it was only late last year when Americans learned about the problem. Why?  ~The Patriot Post


liar-nObama Shadows Trump On His 
Own “Pretend President” Globalist World Tour
{rickwells.us} ~ The figurehead leader of the shadow government in the US, former pretend “president” Hussein liar-nObama... is once again inserting himself into world politics. He’s probably acting as a representative of the globalists in their efforts to expand their control and likely attempting to undermine the efforts of President Trump in foreign affairs and trade. liar-nObama will leave Tuesday for a 5-day, three nation trip where he will make some speeches  and reassure his fragile ego that the world still loves him. He visits China first, on the heels of President Trump’s highly successful 12-day Asia tour earlier this month, as well as India and France. liar-nObama may receive a warmer welcome for President Xi this time around than the last, when he was forced to exit from the underside of the rear of the plane. Even if the snub is repeated, it will still be a warmer welcome than liar-nObama deserves... https://rickwells.us/obama-trump-globalist-tour/

by Newsmax Wires
{newsmax.com} ~ Guthrie read a statement from NBC News chairman Andy Lack... stating that the company has received a detailed complaint from a colleague Monday night "about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace" by Lauer. Lack's statement said the company found that after a serious review of the complaint it represented "a clear violation" of the company's standards, and Lauer was terminated as a result. Lack added in his statement that it was the first complaint about Lauer in more than 20 years at NBC, but "we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident."...  https://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/matt-lauer-fired-today-sexual-mis...
Creepy 'ghost ships' filled 
with skeletons wash up in Japan
{wnd.com} ~ At least four so-called “ghost ships” have washed up on Japanese shores this month, and some contain mysterious skeletons... In November alone, 15 dead bodies and skeletons have been discovered, and 11 living North Koreans have been rescued and returned to the Hermit Kingdom. Authorities believe the old boats are from North Korea, though it’s unclear whether the passengers were defectors or men forced to fish in treacherous waters to feed an increasingly starving population...  http://www.wnd.com/2017/11/creepy-ghost-ships-filled-with-skeletons...
Don’t Believe the Democrat 
Attacks on Tax Reform. Here Are the Facts.
by Derek Kreifels
{dailysignal.com} ~ As president of the State Financial Officers Foundation, I have the privilege of working with some of the nation’s sharpest financial officers. These leaders—state treasurers, state controllers, and state auditors—know firsthand how policies coming from inside the beltway impact the states. The rhetoric during this year’s tax reform debate is producing more heat than light. While Democrats portray the tax reform bill as an all-out assault on the American middle class, members of the State Financial Officers Foundation have a different view. We believe tax reform is vital to growing our economy and empowering innovators in our states...  http://dailysignal.com/2017/11/28/dont-believe-democrat-attacks-tax...
After Months of Inaction, Senate Republicans
Must Seize Chance to Pass Tax Reform
by Mike Needham
{dailysignal.com} ~ After nearly 11 months of careening from one disappointment to another, Congress is on the verge of a major breakthrough on tax reform... Heritage Action for America intends to key vote in favor of the Senate proposal, as currently drafted, that has been ably constructed by the Senate Finance Committee with input from a broad spectrum of the Senate Republican Conference. By now, the arguments in favor of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act are familiar: tax cuts for most Americans, including a big win for the middle and working class; increased long-run gross domestic product by 2.8 percent with the potential for nearly 1 million new jobs; the elimination of the unfair and misguided state and local tax deduction; and the elimination of liar-nObamacare’s draconian individual mandate...  http://dailysignal.com/2017/11/28/months-inaction-senate-republican...
Better Late Than Never: Really?

by Cal Thomas
{townhall.com} ~ The English poet of the Middle Ages, Geoffrey Chaucer, is generally credited with coining the phrase that has been updated in modern English to read, "better late than never." It means to do something or to arrive later than expected may not be good, but it is better than not at all.

That may not be true in the case of former President liar-Bill Clinton's enablers and apologists for his sexual misdeeds before and after winning the White House.

At a time when people in the media, Congress and the entertainment industry are being exposed for allegedly -- and in some cases admittedly -- sexually harassing and assaulting women, the failure of President liar-Clinton's cabinet and staff to confront him on his misbehavior is only now being dealt with in light of other incidents.

President liar-nObama's secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, spoke to liar-nObama adviser David Axelrod for his podcast program.

About liar-Clinton's extramarital exploits, Sebelius said, "Not only did people look the other way, but they went after the women who came forward and accused him. And so it doubled down on not only bad behavior but abusive behavior. And then people attacked the victims."

Sebelius also criticized liar-Hillary Clinton and White House staff members for smearing her husband's accusers. She said the same pattern is being repeated today as various men are accused of sexual harassment and their accusers are being twice victimized.

Among others aiding liar-Clinton, either by their silence or by issuing misleading statements, was his secretary of state, Madeleine Albright. Albright appeared in the White House driveway before news cameras and vouched for liar-Clinton's veracity when he said, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky."

If Albright and other higher-ups knew or suspected that liar-Bill Clinton was engaging in extramarital sex and liar-Hillary was aiding in the cover-up, they should have resigned in protest or confronted the president, or both.

While it's true, as Sebelius noted, that less powerful women fear speaking up because they might lose their jobs, the higher and mightier ones would presumably not have such concerns. In fact, they might be regarded as heroes or heroines and rescuers of casualties from the sexual revolution.

There should be no double standard about any of this; whether the abuser is the president or a boss, if allegations of sexual misconduct can be proved, that person should be forced to face the consequences. Tolerating or denying this behavior only guarantees we get more of it.

Every female is someone's daughter, wife, mother, girlfriend or sister. Would these abusers tolerate the harassment or rape of a close female relative or friend? Not unless they are sicker than the behavior they are alleged to have carried out.

In her interview with Axelrod, Sebelius drew a distinction between liar-Clinton's acts and those of accused groper Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) and accused pedophile Roy Moore. In the case of Franken, she said, he admitted the bad behavior and immediately called for an investigation by the Senate Ethics Committee. Moore, Harvey Weinstein, President Trump and others have denied the accusations made against them.

Sebelius admitted the Senate Ethics Committee has a checkered history when it comes to investigating claims against members, but she thinks with so much public outcry, disgust and pressure, members won't be able to sweep things under the rug. The question is whether Franken's call for an investigation is an attempt to delay accountability for his actions.

One benefit from the Sebelius interview is that it should be the final word on the political lives of both liar-Clintons. They should leave the stage for a new generation. Given their past and lust for money, however, I'm betting they won't. It could be said their departure into retirement would be considered a case of better late than never.

‘WikiLeaks Can’t Protect Their Sources’
Is The CIA About To Reveal Names Of DNC Leakers

The saga surrounding who leaked sensitive DNC documents to WikiLeaks may take an interesting turn, hints former CIA officer Fred Rustmann.

WND reports:

The Central Intelligence Agency knows the identities of the people who leaked DNC emails to the whistleblower organization WikiLeaks during the heat of the 2016 presidential campaign, a former CIA officer contends.

Fred Rustmann, who served as an operations officer in the CIA’s National Clandestine Service for 24 years and was a member of the agency’s elite Senior Intelligence Service, said in an interview with WND that WikiLeaks’ ongoing release of classified information is “disgusting.” 

“WikiLeaks says they want to protect their sources – Julian Assange said that he wouldn’t reveal his sources, but he would say that it wasn’t the Russians,” Rustmann said. “But the agency knows a lot of the information. I suspect they may have a pretty good idea of who provided that information to WikiLeaks.”

Rustmann’s comments raise questions about potential plans for the CIA to reveal the names of those who allegedly leaked DNC documents to WikiLeaks.

Recently, the CIA made a veiled threat to WikiLeaks in respect to protecting their sources.

“WikiLeaks may think they are protecting those who provide them with classified information & other secrets, but they should not be certain of that,” the CIA statement said. 

In a statement to WND, Robert L. Deitz, a former advisor to CIA head Michael Hayden, called the threat “unprecedented.”

“It’s pretty unusual for the CIA to make a threat to WikiLeaks so publicly. It’s pretty unprecedented; one ought to be skeptical about this. That is not the way that CIA officials should operate,” Deitz said.

“This is the kind of thing, if somebody were to make this kind of threat it would come out of a different organization, DOD, State or maybe the White House. Traditionally it would certainly not come out of the CIA,” Deitz added.

WikiLeaks is in the news after both CNN and CBS falsely reported the group granted Donald Trump Jr. access to future leaks.

However, WikiLeaks had tweeted a link to the information days before the email reached Trump Jr.’s inbox. The fake news media claim this was stone cold proof of collusion, as WikiLeaks has long been smeared as a Kremlin puppet.
