It is interesting you know, looking back to what took place in 2016 in the US election, something which affects the entire free world, the United States is that important, whatever she does, affects us on the outside. That was a time when every mainstream media outlet from the Clinton News Network (CNN to you) to the New York Times and Washington Post was shouting night after night that Russia was hacking the 216 election for Donald J Trump’s benefit. They had no evidence then and have even less now, that the leaked DNC (Democratic National Committee) emails published on WikiLeaks, exposing horrific scandals behind the scenes, came directly from Russian Government hackers. In fact, WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, denied it outright but he was not believed. At one stage the mainstream media, all of the Clinton supporters, and the Demorats (we call Democrats Demorats in GMJ Books) themselves, were so desperate to get away from the relentless exposed scandals that the Obama White House directly accused Russia of being behind the hacking:
“The US Intelligence Community (USIC) is confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails from US persons and institutions, including from US political organizations. The recent disclosures of alleged hacked e-mails on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts. These thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the US election process. Such activity is not new to Moscow—the Russians have used similar tactics and techniques across Europe and Eurasia, for example, to influence public opinion there. We believe, based on the scope and sensitivity of these efforts, that only Russia's senior-most officials could have authorized these activities.”
The above is the opening clause from a “Joint Statement” from the Department of Homeland Security and Office of the Director of National Intelligence made on October 7, 2016. Moscow said it was “rubbish” and Mr Putin started laughing openly but let us look at the statement closer, since it is used as “evidence” that the Russian’s stole the election for Trump. I can tell you, there is nothing easier in the world than kicking up dust clouds when you are caught with your pants on your knees as the DNC (Democratic National Committee) was, the leaked emails could not be explained nor denied (although they tried, vaguely mentioning fraudulent changes made to the leaked emails but not exactly where) and so they went on the attack with the above statement. Also, I suppose, to create sympathy for themselves, they being the hacked victims here and not answering what was revealed. In law, ask me, I stood in court for many years watching the curse of society, lawyers, spin away and believing their own lies and I know the law also, better than most, when a lawyer start saying words like “is confident,” “are consistent,” “are intended” and “we believe” the first thought any judge and the opposing side have about his statements is that it is pure speculation, not evidence. Those four words, when you know what to look for in patterns, and we do, tells us everything. Interestingly, what many non-lawyers do not understand, is that no lawyer is allowed to lie openly in court, if he does, he may be disbarred for contempt. So to get past that aspect, they use words as the above: “is confident,” “are consistent,” “are intended” and “we believe” and then he is covered, saying that it was his “believe” at the time under instruction from his client, the court must decide whose version is correct, right? So he is covered, he did not lie outright and this is to be found all over the world, as ancient as is prostitution. The effect though is one of disbelief among those in the known, enough to dismiss the statement as crap, nonsense and of no legal standing whatsoever. I will never accept that statement as anything but a White House cover up and neither should you, where are the evidence beyond the blatant innuendos?
If you wish to prove to a court that hacking took place, you do so systematically and scientifically showing exactly how the break-in took place, how long, when and what was done (downloading the emails). You do not make vague and utterly embarrassing statements of speculation that you believe, that you “are confident, are intended, and, this is consistent” to what may have happened before (and is not even under consideration now to begin with). It is entirely a meaningless statement and shows desperation. It is not evidence at all, it their personal opinion and nothing else. Ask any detective you may be acquainted to regarding to what I said above and he will tell you - you will be laughed out of court and this is the Laws of Evidence 101, the very basics of law. Of course, the liberal, he is a clever fool, will tell you now that the “evidence” cannot be shown to you because of national security, and that, is even more laughable. Let me explain, when a country interferes in another’s election, it is serious, it may even lead to war as it is an act of war under International Law to do so. Being this serious, the same in classification as the attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941, logic will tell you that if they had any evidence, and I mean real evidence, then the matter would have gone to the UN at least to complain and make shrieking noises, embarrassing Russia to no end, yet, no such thing happened, why not?
All we have is a derisory statement without evidence, hence, they were deceitful (a deplorable right wing conspiracy perhaps, hello Hilarious, she mentioned the “Russian” attack many times, again without any evidence). You have to wonder how far the corruption goes when public figureheads are willing to make fools of themselves to support their elective candidate. How far can you abuse the machinations of State to help your cause before it becomes a genuine threat to democracy? Is it not enough to fly around on Air Force One to campaign for Hilarious when you should be working, being the self-proclaimed “leader of the free world?” You may also ask me why is this important to our story in Code Name Moonlight? Perception. As I explained earlier and Angelique got the image of a manly Mr Putin versus Mr Obama in a judo ring in your head, in counter terrorism perception is everything. If America looks weak, she will be attacked, hear my words, she will be attacked from within and from the outside. When America is attacked and perceived as weak, we on the outside suffer the consequence with her. This foolishness must come to an end.
