The Russians Did it! Or Would That be Crowdstrike?

It seems that the desperate, hysterical, faked up attempt by the Democrats to blame Hillary's catastrophic defeat on the Russians is unraveling yet further into a threadbare tale of skulduggery and malfeasance.

Apparently the corrupt as you like  honest as the day's long Dems, and the FBI, and the lying, mendacious, corrupt, venal mainstream media based their Red Menace narrative on the findings of one firm, Crowdstrike.

Crowdstrike's integrity has been called into question, not least for misrepresenting data from the conflict in the Ukraine. Here's Zerohedge:

This is nuts. Are all U.S. government agencies simply listening to what Crowdstike said in coming to their “independent” conclusions that Russia hacked the DNC? If so, that’s a huge problem. Particularly considering what Voice of America published yesterday in a piece titled, Cyber Firm at Center of Russian Hacking Charges Misread Data:
"An influential British think tank and Ukraine’s military are disputing a report that the U.S. cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike has used to buttress its claims of Russian hacking in the presidential election.

"The CrowdStrike report, released in December, asserted that Russians hacked into a Ukrainian artillery app, resulting in heavy losses of howitzers in Ukraine’s war with Russian-backed separatists.
"But the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) told VOA that CrowdStrike erroneously used IISS data as proof of the intrusion. IISS disavowed any connection to the CrowdStrike report. Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense also has claimed combat losses and hacking never happened.
"The challenges to CrowdStrike’s credibility are significant because the firm was the first to link last year’s hacks of Democratic Party computers to Russian actors, and because CrowdStrike co-founder Dimiti Alperovitch has trumpeted its Ukraine report as more evidence of Russian election tampering."
How is this not the biggest story in America right now?

Good question. Perhaps because truth might get in the way of making excuses for the Democratic Party's epic failure? You can read the whole thing here.

There are literally hundreds of nasty, foul little cabals like Crowdstrike and they are drawn to the (even more nasty as if that was possible) DNC and Clintons to use outright lies and deception to influence the outcomes of elections. The widespread use of social media has empowered them. For all I know, they all drink the "Podesta concoction" as they worship Baal.

Some were outed by Project Veritas - all of the anti-Trump shouters and marchers were hirelings of the Clintons. Still others like Crowdstrike, lurk in the shadows.

I myself have been approached to work with people like this, and I declined. It's not in my wheelhouse.

I think Baal is getting a raw deal these days. Back in the day, Baal was the real deal before Jesus showed up, as Baal was generally understood to be the god of the Phoenicians.

Cursing Baal is much like bad mouthing the Ford Model T as a death machine: sure, it has no turn signals, no air bags, no heater, no anti-lock brakes, no seat belts, and is missing a myriad number of gadgets today that are considered safety must haves. But is was the bees knees at the time.

What Larry said. Crowdstrike is the tip of the proverbial iceberg. When in doubt, follow the money trail... While the left will never admit to anything, nor will the MSM actually cover it, the truth WILL get out eventually.
