Chasing For Ratings: Trump-Russia collusion grows as US media follows anonymous sources
VK has almost a half billion users. Not as big as Facebook, but pretty large nonetheless. Anyone can make an account there. VK has less of a connection to the Russian government than Facebook has to the government of the USA.

Critical facts left out of “60 Minutes” interview targeting RT
The "60 Minutes" report provided a one-sided, high school level analysis of the activities of RT. The corporate media here in the USA is on the defensive since they've been caught lying to the public and rather than come clean and admit what they've done, they attack the source which exposed their lies.

This Russian hacker bullshit story just keeps getting dumber and dumber. Now there's a story that a Dutch group of hackers alerted authorities here in the USA of Russian hacker efforts way back in 2014. All sorts of claims are made, but anyone with any insight into how hacking works instantly recognizes that it's just more shit being thrown against the wall in hopes that something will stick. Obviously, if the Obama administration knew all this way back in 2014, then why did they allow the DNC server to be so poorly secured that even a fourteen-year-old ankle-biter would be able to hack it? The Seth Rich story remains the most viable story, but if that story gets the attention it deserves the entire DNC comes tumbling down with it. Too much at stake here and so they just keep on making up more and more lies to cover up the truth.

The Russian hacker story is one of a criminal accusing the one that caught him of committing the crime. Someone needs to be accountable. Heads should roll. For now I'm content to see them continue to lie their asses off because the more they lie the more they expose themselves. I would like to see it continue till it goes all the way to the top and Hillary and Obama are tried for treason! Lock them up! Lock them up!

FISA Memo Release - What does it mean?
This is the most straight forward and reasonable explanation of the recently released documents that I've heard so far.

DHS Cybersecurity Head: 'No Doubt' Russians Penetrated Voter Registration System
More bullshit, obvious stupidity. First of all, no one with half a brain would accept the assertion that any single country or group not affiliated with a country is hacking just about any target out there. Thousands of hacker groups (most unaffiliated with any country) hack just about anything out there. Secondly, any hacker worth a grain of salt knows how to redirect and disguise an attack to make it appear to be coming from somewhere that it's not coming from. Thirdly, the Russians are perfectly capable of hacking from locations other than Russia. (For instance, they could rent office space in another nation and launch cyber attacks from these locations without much effort.) Further to only mention the Russians as possible perpetrators is a complete giveaway that we're dealing with a bullshit story!
