Putin Sends Missile System To Border, Gives Order To Protect Moscow At All Costs

January 15, 2017 2 comments

Putin is no longer playing games!

Do you want to go to war with Russia? Do you want to go back to the Cold War days of never knowing when a Nation might launch their nuclear missiles?

Barack Hussein Obama, ignorantly convinced, continues to push us closer to war with Russia because he believes that somehow Putin interfered with 63,000,000 Americans and 30 states voting for Donald Trump.

Amid reports indicating that Obama has now placed 3,500 U.S. troops to the border of Russia and Poland, Russia is now taking this a direct act of war. This treasonous act from Obama has inched us closer to war than we have been since the 1980’s.

Putin has placed dozens of anti-aircraft missile systems all around Moscow in order to keep Russia safe and prevent any aircraft’s from flying near the country.

S-400 Growler missile systems – used widely in Syria – have been stationed outside the Russian capital. Russia’s defense ministry also confirmed that an air force regiment had been deployed to the region around the city.

Another air defense regiment equipped with the S-400 system will be put on combat duty near Moscow soon, officials said.

The S-400, known in Russia as the Triumf missile system and by NATO as the Growler, is Russia’s most powerful and advanced surface-to-air missile system and can hit a target 250 miles away. Putin has ordered his men to “respond accordingly to any acts they deem a threat to Russia.”

“The combat crews of the Aerospace Forces’ Moscow Region air defense formation’s surface-to-air missile regiment, which received the new regimental set of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system, have begun air defense combat duty on Wednesday, January 11, in Moscow and Russia’s central industrial region,” the defense ministry said.

It is imperative that we all understand one thing: we are one shot away from being in another Cold War. If Obama temps Putin one more time, he will fire and shoot American soldiers because he feels as if he needs to protect his country. Imagine the position this puts Trump in as he has not taken office yet.

Should Obama be impeached for leading us into war with Russia without for absolutely no reason?

Leave us your thoughts below and share this if you think he should be removed from office before we enter another pointless war!

Anti-Aircraft Missiles Deployed Around Moscow as U.S. Troops Arrive in Poland

Russia responded to the arrival of 3,000 U.S. troops in Poland by deploying advanced S-400 anti-aircraft missiles around Moscow.

The UK Daily Mail quotes the Russian Defense Ministry as saying:

The SAM combat squads of the Moscow Region aerospace forces have put the new S-400 Triumph air defense missile system into service, and have gone on combat duty for the air defense of Moscow and the central industrial region of Russia. The main task of the anti-aircraft missile troops of the Russian Aerospace Forces is air defense and protecting vital state, military, industry and energy facilities, as well as the Armed Forces troops and transport communications, from aerospace attacks.

According to International Business Times, the Defense Ministry plans to deploy four more units equipped with S-400 launchers later this year.

The UK Independent reports that the first deployment will take up positions in Podolsk, 15 miles south of Moscow. The Russians announced that S-400s would be deployed to Kaliningrad, near the Polish and Lithuanian borders, in November — a position that would give them the ability to target NATO aircraft over most of the Baltic region.

The Independent observes that Russian officials gave no indication of which “enemy” they expected to launch airstrikes on vital infrastructure around Moscow.

On Friday, Chinese government media reported that China and Russia are working together on “countermeasures” to the THAAD anti-missile system the United States is deploying in South Korea, to defend against North Korean threats.

“China and Russia urged the United States and South Korea to address their security concerns and stop the deployment of THAAD on the Korean Peninsula,” read a joint statement quoted by Reuters.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said on Friday:

We think the US-South Korean decision to deploy the THAAD missile defense system has seriously threatened China’s security interest. For the region, it will also break the strategic balance. So it’s completely understandable to see countries in the region firmly oppose this decision. China and other countries have to address our own legitimate security concerns and take necessary measures to safeguard our security interest.

The Chinese and Russians conducted a joint anti-missile drill in May and are planning another for 2017. The point of expressing their anxiety over an anti-missile system with anti-missile drills is that China and Russia frequently accuse the U.S. and Europeans of plotting to launch aggressive strikes from behind their missile shields.

Also, Reuters notes the Chinese and Russians have expressed concerns about the powerful radar of the THAAD system compromising their security.

CNN cites analysts who say the Chinese foreign policy establishment sees THAAD as a threat to the region on par with North Korea’s nuclear ambitions. In essence, the Chinese and Russians worry that the U.S. is building an anti-missile and anti-aircraft fence around them.

Russia Declares ‘State Of Emergency’ Over U.S. Military Buildup

Russia declare state of emergency due to unprecedented military buildup in Poland

Russia has declared a state of emergency over the increasingly hostile U.S. military build-up in Poland, calling the presence a “threat to national security.”

The Kremlin have expressed concern that the 2,700 troops arriving on their border as part of operation Atlantic Resolve is secretly intended to incite a nuclear war between Russia and the West.

Yahoo News reports:

The Kremlin, which has previously criticised NATO for its reinforcement in Eastern Europe, said on Thursday the deployment was an aggressive step along its borders.

“We consider this a threat to us,” Dmitry Peskov, Kremlin’s spokesman, told journalists on a conference call. “We are talking here about a third country stepping up its military presence in Europe near our borders.”

MATTER OF INFLUENCE

Modernization of the army has been a key priority for Poland’s year-old government run by the conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party, which built its popularity partly on promising greater security capabilities.

On Thursday, Polish Defence Minister Antoni Macierewicz said on the state TVP Info news channel that the NATO deployment puts an end to Russia’s influence in the region.

“Even after 1989 we had to continuously wonder whether the Russians won’t veto this or that action,” said Macierewicz, who has been seeking better ties and contracts with the U.S. military.

“Russia’s veto power in Central Europe, in Poland, has ended once and for all.”

Moscow, however, has already deployed in retaliation nuclear-capable Iskander missiles in its European exclave of Kaliningrad, in a move the U.S. State Department said was “destabilising to European security.”

The U.S. deployment to NATO’s eastern flank includes more than 80 main battle tanks and hundreds of armored vehicles. The military unit will rotate through several countries, including Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Romania.

“Their arrival is just one small but meaningful example of how we are quickly building combat power here,” Norrie said.

Russia Says It Has No Compromising Material on Trump

January 12, 2017 1 comment

U.S. intelligence agencies and the FBI have spent months trying to substantiate explosive claims

Russia on Wednesday denied it has compromising material on Donald Trump, calling a dossier of unverified allegations an “absolute fabrication” and an attempt to damage U.S.-Russian relations.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov dismissed the report, which claimed that Russia has material that could be used to blackmail Mr. Trump, as “pulp fiction,” according to Russian news agencies.

“This is a clear attempt to damage our bilateral relations,” he said. “Truly, there are those who whip up this hysteria, who will break their necks to support this ‘witch hunt’”

Mr. Peskov said that the Kremlin wasn’t involved in collecting compromising information on anyone, including Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

His comments come a day after it emerged that U.S. intelligence agencies and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have spent months trying to substantiate explosive claims, compiled by a former Western intelligence official, that Russian government operatives engaged in an extensive conspiracy with advisers to Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign and employees of his company, according to people familiar with the matter.

The U.S. intelligence community and top officials have repeatedly accused Russia of trying to influence the 2016 presidential election, releasing a report last week that leveled broad accusations against Moscow, including cyberattacks meant to undermine the election and skewed coverage by state-funded Russian media.

Russia has denied such accusations and described them as unsubstantiated and an attempt by U.S. politicians to distract attention from domestic issues.

The latest claims were deemed sufficiently significant by senior intelligence officials to summarize them in a two-page addendum to the classified briefing President-elect Trump received last Friday about Russian efforts to influence the U.S. presidential campaign, the people said.

“FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!” Mr. Trump tweeted after the allegations surfaced publicly Tuesday evening.

U.S. officials confirmed that a summary of the information had been given to Mr. Trump. They said sharing of such unverified information was taken out of an abundance of caution that the incoming president should be aware of allegations being made against him that could become public—a decision intelligence experts backed. President Barack Obama received the same information, officials said.

The agencies are continuing to investigate the claims, the people familiar with the matter said.

Among the allegations, contained in a set of confidential memos written by the former official, are that Mr. Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, met with Kremlin officials and discussed how to arrange cash payments to hackers working under Moscow’s direction against the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton. The FBI has found no evidence that he traveled to the Czech Republic, where the meeting allegedly took place in August of last year, officials said.

Mr. Cohen, in an interview, denied any such meeting. He said in an interview Tuesday evening that he had never been contacted by the FBI or any other U.S. agency on these issues. He said Mr. Trump has also not contacted him about them. Mr. Cohen said he previously knew about the allegations because he had been contacted about them by journalists.

The former official who compiled the dossier works for a private investigations company and was hired by both Republicans and Democrats to investigate Mr. Trump, according to one official close to the matter. His reports have circulated for months among law-enforcement and intelligence agencies as well as congressional offices and news outlets, including The Wall Street Journal. While U.S. agencies have been unable to verify the allegations, the former official who produced the report has a long and respected track record among intelligence officials. The Journal hasn’t been able to verify the allegations.

The memos, which have been the subject of intense interest, include claims that Russian officials have evidence of Mr. Trump engaging in sexual acts with prostitutes at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Moscow, and have held the information in reserve as potential blackmail.

Hotel staff declined to say whether Mr. Trump had stayed at the hotel. The presidential suite, where the acts are alleged to have occurred, overlooks Red Square and costs 1.2 million rubles ($19,600) a night.

The memos were published in full online Tuesday evening, amid the latest twist in a monthslong feud between the intelligence community and Mr. Trump over the question of whether and why Russia interfered with the U.S. election.

The revelations about the unsubstantiated allegations could complicate a week in which several of Mr. Trump’s highest-level cabinet officials face confirmation hearings before the Senate and when Mr. Trump, on Wednesday morning, is scheduled to give his first press conference since July.

Wow! The Real ‘Russian’ Hackers Finally Exposed! The Ultimate Obama Deception!

January 11, 2017 1 comment

“If someone steals your keys to encrypt the data,
it doesn’t matter how secure the algorithms are.”

Dmitri Alperovitch, founder of CrowdStrike.

 

Russians did not hack the DNC system, a Russian named Dmitri Alperovitch is the hacker and he works for President Obama. In the last five years the Obama administration has turned exclusively to one Russian to solve every major cyber-attack in America, whether the attack was on the U. S. government or a corporation.  Only one “super-hero cyber-warrior” seems to “have the codes” to figure out “if” a system was hacked and by “whom.”

Dmitri’s company, CrowdStrike has been called in by Obama to solve mysterious attacks on many high level government agencies and American corporations, including: German Bundestag, Democratic National Committee, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), the White House, the State Department, SONY, and many others.

CrowdStrike’s philosophy is: “You don’t have a malware problem; you have an adversary problem.”

CrowdStrike has played a critical role in the development of America’s cyber-defense policy. Dmitri Alperovitch and George Kurtz, a former head of the FBI cyberwarfare unit founded CrowdStrike. Shawn Henry, former executive assistant director at the FBI is now CrowdStrike’s president of services. The company is crawling with former U. S. intelligence agents.

Before Alperovitch founded CrowdStrike in 2011, he was working in Atlanta as the chief threat officer at the antivirus software firm McAfee, owned by Intel (a DARPA company). During that time, he “discovered” the Chinese had compromised at least seventy-one companies and organizations, including thirteen defense contractors, three electronics firms, and the International Olympic Committee. He was the only person to notice the biggest cyberattack in history!  Nothing suspicious about that.

Alperovitch and the DNC

After CrowdStrike was hired as an independent “vendor” by the DNC to investigate a possible cyberattack on their system, Alperovitch sent the DNC a proprietary software package called Falcon that monitors the networks of its clients in real time. According to Alperovitch, Falcon “lit up,” within ten seconds of being installed at the DNC. Alperovitch had his “proof” in TEN SECONDS that Russia was in the network. This “alleged” evidence of Russian hacking has yet to be shared with anyone.

As Donald Trump has pointed out, the FBI, the agency that should have been immediately involved in hacking that effects “National Security,” has yet to even examine the DNC system to begin an investigation. Instead, the FBI and 16 other U. S. “intelligence” agencies simply “agree” with Obama’s most trusted “cyberwarfare” expert Dmitri Alperovitch’s “TEN SECOND” assessment that produced no evidence to support the claim.

Also remember that it is only Alperovitch and CrowdStrike that claim to have evidence that it was Russian hackers. In fact, only two hackers were found to have been in the system and were both identified by Alperovitch as Russian FSB (CIA) and the Russian GRU (DoD). It is only Alperovitch who claims that he knows that it is Putin behind these two hackers.

Alperovitch failed to mention in his conclusive “TEN SECOND” assessment that Guccifer 2.0 had already hacked the DNC and made available to the public the documents he hacked – before Alperovitch did his ten second assessment. Alperovitch reported that no other hackers were found, ignoring the fact that Guccifer 2.0 had already hacked and released DNC documents to the public. Alperovitch’s assessment also goes directly against Julian Assange’s repeated statements that the DNC leaks did not come from the Russians.

The ridiculously fake cyber-attack assessment done by Alperovitch and CrowdStrike naïvely flies in the face of the fact that a DNC insider admitted that he had released the DNC documents. Julian Assange implied in an interview that the murdered Democratic National Committee staffer, Seth Rich, was the source of a trove of damaging emails the website posted just days before the party’s convention. Seth was on his way to testify about the DNC leaks to the FBI when he was shot dead in the street.

It is also absurd to hear Alperovitch state that the Russian FSB (equivalent to the CIA) had been monitoring the DNC site for over a year and had done nothing. No attack, no theft, and no harm was done to the system by this “false-flag cyber-attack” on the DNC – or at least, Alperovitch “reported” there was an attack. The second hacker, the supposed Russian military (GRU – like the U. S. DoD) hacker, had just entered the system two weeks before and also had done “nothing” but observe.

It is only Alperovitch’s word that reports that the Russian FSB was “looking for files on Donald Trump.” It is only this false claim that spuriously ties Trump to the “alleged” attack. It is also only Alperovitch who believes that this hack that was supposedly “looking for Trump files” was an attempt to “influence” the election. No files were found about Trump by the second hacker, as we know from Wikileaks and Guccifer 2.0’s leaks. To confabulate that “Russian’s hacked the DNC to influence the elections” is the claim of one well-known Russian spy. Then, 17 U. S. intelligence agencies unanimously confirm that Alperovitch is correct – even though there is no evidence and no investigation was ever conducted.

How does Dmitri Alperovitch have such power? Why did Obama again and again use Alperovitch’s company, CrowdStrike, when they have miserably failed to stop further cyber-attacks on the systems they were hired to protect? Why should anyone believe CrowdStrikes false-flag report?

After documents from the DNC continued to leak, and Guccifer 2.0 and Wikileaks made CrowdStrike’s report look foolish, Alperovitch decided the situation was far worse than he had reported. He single-handedly concluded that the Russians were conducting an “influence operation” to help win the election for Trump.  This false assertion had absolutely no evidence to back it up.

On July 22, three days before the Democratic convention in Philadelphia, WikiLeaks dumped a massive cache of emails that had been “stolen” (not hacked) from the DNC. Reporters soon found emails suggesting that the DNC leadership had favored Hillary Clinton in her primary race against Bernie Sanders, which led Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the DNC chair, along with three other officials, to resign.

Just days later, it was discovered that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) had been hacked. CrowdStrike was called in again and once again, Alperovitch immediately “believed” that Russia was responsible. A lawyer for the DCCC gave Alperovitch permission to confirm the leak and to name Russia as the suspected author. Two weeks later, files from the DCCC began to appear on Guccifer 2.0’s website. This time Guccifer released information about Democratic congressional candidates who were running close races in Florida, Ohio, Illinois, and Pennsylvania. On August 12, Guccifer went further, publishing a spreadsheet that included the personal email addresses and phone numbers of nearly two hundred Democratic members of Congress.

Once again, Guccifer 2.0 proved Alperovitch and CrowdStrike’s claime to be grossly incorrect about the hack originating from Russia, with Putin masterminding it all. Nancy Pelosi offered members of Congress Alperovitch’s suggestion of installing Falcon, the system that failed to stop cyberattacks at the DNC, on all congressional laptops.

Key Point: Once Falcon was installed on the computers of members of the U. S. Congress, CrowdStike had even further full access into U. S. government accounts.

Alperovitch’s “Unbelievable” History

Dmitri was born in 1980 in Moscow were his father, Michael, was a nuclear physicist, (so Dmitri claims).  Dmitri’s father was supposedly involved at the highest levels of Russian nuclear science.  He also claims that his father taught him to write code as a child.

In 1990, his father was sent to Maryland as part of a nuclear-safety training program for scientists. In 1994, Michael Alperovitch was granted a visa to Canada, and a year later the family moved to Chattanooga, where Michael took a job with the Tennessee Valley Authority.

While Dmitri Alperovitch was still in high school, he and his father started an encryption-technology business. Dmitri studied computer science at Georgia Tech and went on to work at an antispam software firm. It was at this time that he realized that cyber-defense was more about psychology than it was about technology. A very odd thing to conclude.

Dmitri Alperovitch posed as a “Russian gangster” on spam discussion forums which brought his illegal activity to the attention of the FBI – as a criminal. In 2005, Dmitri flew to Pittsburgh to meet an FBI agent named Keith Mularski, who had been asked to lead an undercover operation against a vast Russian credit-card-theft syndicate. Alperovitch worked closely with Mularski’s sting operation which took two years, but it ultimately brought about fifty-six arrests.  Dmitri Alperovitch then became a pawn of the FBI and CIA.

In 2010, while he was at McAfee, the head of cybersecurity at Google told Dmitri that Gmail accounts belonging to human-rights activists in China had been breached. Google suspected the Chinese government. Alperovitch found that the breach was unprecedented in scale; it affected more than a dozen of McAfee’s clients and involved the Chinese government. Three days after his supposed discovery, Alperovitch was on a plane to Washington where he had been asked to vet a paragraph in a speech by the secretary of state, Hillary Clinton.

2014, Sony called in CrowdStrike to investigate a breach of its network. Alperovitch needed just “two hours” to identify North Korea as the adversary. Executives at Sony asked Alperovitch to go public with the information immediately, but it took the FBI another three weeks before it confirmed the attribution.

Russia Hacked DNC, Swayed Elections: But Where is the Evidence?

January 11, 2017 Leave a comment

When government agencies have to turn to third parties for DNC hacked evidence, and no official reports have yet been released supplying evidence of Russian involvement, isn’t it about time the public started asking questions?

AnonWatcher

We’re all a little tired of the Obama-says-she-says debate about who rigged the elections. The accusations haven’t stopped with Assange thrown into the mix, along with headliners’ Trump, Putin and the corporate mainstream media [insert any MSM title here].

But where is the evidence to prove this endless battle of words? Has anyone seen a list? Where is the first-hand witness testimony backing up these dangerous claims and American finger-pointing?

We already have a statement from Julian Assange clearly noting that the hacks did not come from a Russian source. And what makes this substantial is that Assange has moved away from never divulging any information about his sources to hinting at who it isn’t.

But what of the actual evidence backing up the Obama administration’s bold move to purge the nation of 35 Russian diplomats? Something that Putin refused to play tit-for-tat with.

Obama used his executive order discretion to oust alleged Russian operatives and to close two Russian compounds to ‘punish’ Russia. We’re witness to multiple news sources saying how bad Russia is – but again, where is the proof rather than opinion?

In the midst of the ‘fake news’ agenda constructed by corporate hypocrisy, is it not imperative to display some of the intelligence supporting the Russians-did-this theory?

The Red Scare tactic has been used twice before, first in 1919 and then in 1947-57 during the Truman/McCarthy era; turning a fear of the Communist Russians into a national obsession. But this Third Red Scare sets a new precedent in an already unstable international theatre. This time we know better – history has taught us what a Cold War can bring.

Is this really a serious case of denial regarding the new President-elect, Donald Trump? Even I was flabbergasted when the win was announced, but not once did I think the Russians were to blame; more like the people were fed up with the Democrats. It happens. Government parties change. The Democrats were in for an eight-year run; it was simply time to reinvent the wheel – again…

TIME ran with a story on Dec. 13 breaking down what we know, that several private cybersecurity firms analysed and tracked hackers down on behalf of Washington, acting in concert with the FBI, NSA and other agencies. Reportedly, TIME says, CrowdStrike posted mid-June 2016 that “two separate Russian intelligence-affiliated adversaries [were] present in the DNC network in May 2016.”

However, reading the actual CrowdStrike post, the evidence is still sketchy. They mention Guccifer 2.0 as the one claiming credit for the DNC breach with documents on his blog post that have “originated from the DNC” yet this evidence “does nothing to lessen …Russian government’s involvement.”

They go on to name COZY BEAR and FANCY BEAR as the two “adversaries” (whom they consider to be the best hackers/terrorists worldwide) that happen to also be linked (they “believe” – no evidence) to the Russian government’s intelligence services.

They also use emotive and lead phrases such as “indicate affiliation” to the Russian government and “mirrors [Russian] strategic interests.” Again, no hard evidence.

It’s all very well to say these two hackers are Russian and responsible for the DNC hacks, but CrowdStrike and TIME both acknowledge that the hacks only demonstrate similarities to the methods employed by the said BEARs. It’s also unknown – according to them – that the hackers worked for the Russian government for certain. They are all running on assumptions.

The bulk of what we’re reading today, blaming the Russians, is based around what CrowdStrike has suggested. Even the FBI has come out this week saying it had to largely depend on CrowdStrike’s analysis because the DNC wouldn’t give the agency access to the hacked DNC servers.

It’s glaringly obvious that no single media outlet knows the truth and that no solid evidence has yet to be released, nonetheless, the Obama administration has the world dangling on a precipice based on assumptions.

TIME promises us that there will be a “declassified review” coming to us this month, before Trump is sworn in. Hopefully by then U.S. intelligence officials can truly conclude with “high confidence” that this matter needs to be finally laid to rest.
