“Russian Hack” of DNC Computers was Inside Job

The latest whistle blown on the Democrats’ contrived anti-Russian hysteria comes from Veteran Intelligence Professionals who describe why they believe the “Russian Hack” of the Democratic National Committee’s computers were an Inside Job at https://consortiumnews.com/2017/07/24/intel-vets-challenge-russia-hack-evidence/ and on video, by one of the authors of that article, Ray McGovern, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YT0hL92xlrs

The article of 7/24/17 entitled “U.S. Intelligence Veterans Believe the ‘Russian Hack’ of DNC Computers May Have Been an Inside Job” states in pertinent part:

“After examining metadata from the “Guccifer 2.0” July 5, 2016 intrusion into the DNC server, independent cyber investigators have concluded that an insider copied DNC data onto an external storage device, and that “telltale signs” implicating Russia were then inserted.
Key among the findings of the independent forensic investigations is the conclusion that the DNC data was copied onto a storage device at a speed that far exceeds an Internet capability for a remote hack. Of equal importance, the forensics show that the copying and doctoring were performed on the East coast of the U.S.”

It was of course the Republican tossing of the black vote in contested states, the same as they did in 2000 and 2004, that made possible sufficient Electoral College votes for a Trump victory. The Russians had nothing to do with it, yet the Democrats are determined to revive the warmongering anti-Russian hysteria which threatens the planet.

The Democrats are not outdone in their anti-Russian hysteria, with practically the entire Congress, Democrats and Republicans together, in a 419 to 3 vote supporting sanctions against Russia for no good reason whatsoever. See https://www.rt.com/news/397539-us-sanctions-retaliation-russia/
and
https://www.rt.com/usa/397474-house-representatives-sanctions-russia/
Only Republican Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, Rep. Tom Massie of Kentucky and Rep. John Duncan of Tennessee voted No.

San Francisco’s millionaire Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi voted for sanctioning Russia, was one of 117 Democrats voting for $696 billion for the war machine, more money than Trump requested but just cannot seem to support the only viable solution to the American medical fiasco, the Improved Medicare for All Act, HR 676, which only has 115 co-sponsors.

Socialized medicine, such as Medicare for All, is not a new concept. It has existed in Germany since 1883, and now exists in all of Europe, Israel, Cuba, Canada, Venezuela, Chile, Costa Rica, China, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand.

The US Congress has 435 members of whom there are 240 Republicans, 194 Democrats and 1 vacancy. See http://clerk.house.gov/member_info/cong.aspx

Clearly, we have no government. We have a gang of millionaires and upper middle class lackeys of this bankrupt social order in which we live, capitalism, engaged in vicious attacks on the workingclass, such as destroying a minor reform of the medical system, Obamacare, and all other gains of the workingclass, to enrich themselves as their greed is insatiable.

A People’s Congress of Resistance is meeting in Washington, D.C. on September 16-17, 2017 at Howard University, with people from all 50 states attending to provide an alternative program to that of the US Congress, much as the Continental Congress met in 1776 to write the Declaration of Independence and carry out the American Revolution. We need a second American Revolution and a new Constitution. Unlike the Continental Congress of 1776, which consisted of local capitalists and their agents, all white male property owners, the People’s Congress of Resistance is of, by and for the workingclass, of all colors and genders. For a list of endorsers, see http://www.congressofresistance.org/endorsements

Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party are well-represented among the endorsers of the People’s Congress of Resistance, always support socialized medicine and all other needs and interests of the workingclass and oppose war and warmongering anti-Russian hysteria, unlike the twin parties of war and fascism, the Democrat-Republicans.

The US Senate voted on July 27, 2017 at 6:02 pm Eastern Time, 98 to 2, to support sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea, with Ron Paul and Bernie Sanders voting no. Sanders' opposition was not due to the sanctions on Russia but the sanctions on Iran. See http://thehill.com/policy/international/russia/344221-senate-sends-russia-sanctions-bill-to-trumps-desk

This is the same US Senate that on July 25, 2017 rose in unison, all 100 Senators, Democrats, Republicans and the “independent” proud warmonger Bernie Sanders, to give a standing ovation to war criminal millionaire Senator John McCain. The description of this fawning over this viciously reactionary senator was in the July 26, 2017 Washington Post, as follows:

“Almost every senator sat in his or her seat, hanging on every word. McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) twisted themselves sideways so they could look directly at McCain, his left eye still deeply swollen from the surgery. Both leaders grew visibly emotional at times, McConnell’s face bright red as Schumer’s eyes glistened.” (The Washington Post, July 26, 2017)

McCain was a volunteer pilot who dropped 2,000 pound bombs on the Vietnamese people from 30,000 feet, not expecting to be shot down, but he was.

The applause for this war criminal means the entire US Senate sees nothing wrong with the illegal and genocidal American War against Vietnam, which resulted in the deaths of 3 million Vietnamese, 1 million Cambodians, 1 million Laotians, 58,000 Americans, and the ongoing serious birth defects from Agent Orange to generations of Vietnamese and of American veterans. Nazi Germany would be proud of Nazi USA and its US Senate.

Nazi Germany was also staunchly anti-Russian, as are the Democrat-Republicans, for the same reason: To steal their gold, oil, diamonds and other mineral wealth.

McCain, age 80, who has been a Republican Arizona senator for 30 years, returned to the US Senate 1 week after eye surgery and a brain cancer diagnosis, which medical care was paid for by the US taxpayers, to destroy the medical care received by the workingclass known as Obamacare.

There is no peace and no socialized medicine from the Democrat-Republicans; only the socialist Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party are for peace and socialized medicine.
