This is getting confusing: was it fake news that caused Hillary to lose, or was it real news dispersed by Russian hackers? They’re not mutually exclusive of course. The story that Russian hackers tried to help Trump win may itself be fake news - started by the New York Times and ended by the Washington Post, two of our best fake news sites.
I understand Barry’s going to launch an investigation of election hacking which is somewhat akin to closing the proverbial barn door after the horse got out.
Some people apparently think hacking critical U.S. agencies and the White House is less concerning than gaining access to Democratic operatives’ (without bylines) emails.
Back in the day, investigative journalists were actually real journalists doing real investigations:
If they still were we wouldn’t need the likes of Gucifer to uncover what actually transpired in Benghazi.
And to blame Russia for something any teenaged hacker might have accomplished during the first half hour of study hall seems a tad silly.
The hackers sent John Podesta an official-looking email on Saturday, March 19, that appeared to come from Google. It warned that someone in Ukraine had obtained Podesta’s personal Gmail password and tried unsuccessfully to log in, and it directed him to a website where he should “change your password immediately.”
Podesta’s chief of staff, Sara Latham, forwarded the email to the operations help desk of Clinton’s campaign, where staffer Charles Delavan in Brooklyn, New York, wrote back 25 minutes later, “This is a legitimate email. John needs to change his password immediately.”
But the email was not authentic.
Pretty clever, those Russians. Pretty stupid, those Democrats.
And speaking of stupid politicians, here’s the latest from stupid Jill Stein’s stupid recount challenge:
The Michigan Supreme Court on Friday denied Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s appeal to restart a partially completed presidential election recount, meaning President-elect Donald Trump’s 10,704-vote victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton stands. – Detroit News
So it is over. And as an added bonus Michigan looks like it’s poised to implement a voter photo ID law. About time.
Michigan’s Republican-led House on Wednesday night approved a strict voter identification proposal over strenuous objections from Democrats who argued the plan could disenfranchise properly registered voters.
So remember, only you can prevent voter fraud.
And then they can use their Obamacare enrollment in order to get a ballot.
Repeal and Replace; build the wall: MAGA.
