Democrat Deep State Still Desperately Trying to 'Link' Informal Trump Campaign Adviser Roger J. Stone Jr. to the Russians via 'GRU'ccifer 2.0
Into this mix, came a report late last week from the neocon-loving Democrat deep state rag The Daily Beast, claiming that the U.S. intelligence community has identified the online persona 'Guccifer 2.0' as a member of Moscow's Main Intelligence Directorate (Гла́вное разве́дывательное управле́ние) operating out GRU's headquarters no less. These findings, as well as (in the interests of full disclosure, a former RogueMoneyRadio guest in March 2016) Roger J. Stone's publicized Twitter direct message interactions with G2.0 have been turned over to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.
The logical question of course, is why now? Why after the intelligence community assessments under then Director of National Intelligence James 'perjurer' Clapper and CIA Director John 'I spied on the U.S. Senate and got away with it' Brennan of October 2016 and January 2017 are we only hearing about this supposedly damning bit of evidence supposedly confirming the Russian security services involvement in hacking the Democratic National Committee now? Especially after the Republican-led House Intelligence Committee found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government and Brennan hinted at the Russians having kompromat on Trump during his paid contributor talks on MS(LSD)NBC? And conveniently enough, right on the heels of a British Prime Minister accusing Russia of carrying out an act of chemical assassination on UK soil? Right after a UK Foreign Minister goes further and insists Putin was personally behind the wildly elaborate skullduggery worthy of a Bond villain, if he isn't the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler?
The answer is of course, a deep state doubling down on Cold War 2, with rumors of a mini-hot war featuring air and cruise missile strikes on Russian-advised Damascus government or Iranian positions inside Syria continuing to circulate, as the drumbeat of Russia = pure evil beats on. The flood of accusations and provocative sanctions are expected to peak sometime during Russia's hosting of the 2018 World Cup, which the British government is under considerable pressure to have its national squad boycott.
As for the 'evidence' that is being offered by this latest report, the person/s behind Guccifer 2.0 supposedly 'slipped up' and failed to log in via a virtual private network (VPN) in France, instead revealing his Moscow IP address which was known to NSA and CIA to belong to the GRU. If you think that story sounds too lame to be true, then you're like the Russian Analyst. Like the supposedly explosive Dutch revelations from January 2018 regarding the Netherlands monitoring the 'APT29 / Cozy Bear' hackers of the SVR (the GRU's rival foreign intelligence service), if the trace was so good why didn't we hear about it earlier? And how are the Dutch claims regarding their monitoring the same hackers who eventually breached the DNC consistent with the FBI's laggardness in warning the Democrats that they had been 'hacked'? And if the Dutch were monitoring Fancy Bear's intrusions into U.S. networks in 2014, why did the FBI not bother to subpeona the Democratic National Commitee (DNC) server to make a positive forensic identification, only relying on private security firm Crowdstrike instead? (For more on Crowdstrike's history of incompetence including falsely claiming 'hacks' of Ukrainian artillery officers iPads blamed on the GRU and other screw ups dating back to co-founder Dmitry Alperovich's days at McAfee, see this).
Prior to the Latest Guccifer 2.0 Claim, British Cyber Researcher Adam Carter and Disobedient Media Previously Exposed Crowdstrike's Hoax-ing of Russian Metadata
This is where the new narrative regarding Russian hacking of the DNC, which is being put out to prop up a likely Robert Mueller indictment of GRU and SVR intelligence officers who will never set foot in the USA, runs into big problems. While Roger J. Stone may have been genuinely convinced as to the professed Romanian identity of Guccifer 2.0, independent cyber researchers like 'Adam Carter' and 'The Forensicator' of Disobedient Media have uncovered suspicious patterns that point to G2.0 being a fabrication of Crowdstrike or someone collaborating with the DNC, not the Russians.
Even if we disregard Wikileaks Vault 7 revelations that the CIA is capable of false flag cyber operations while playing the role of Russian or Chinese hackers while using their known past exploits to deliberately leave behind markers in servers, independent researcher Jeffrey Carr demonstrated in late 2016 that some of the code attributed to Fancy and Cozy Bears by Crowdstrike and ThreatConnect have been 'in the wild' on the dark web for years. Our own article discussing the 'tells' left by Guccifer 2.0 indicating a native English rather than Romanian or Russian speaker behind the persona in his more drawn out communications with reporters was previously published by us here at RogueMoney, in July 2017. But the biggest issue and one that cyber researchers supporting the Crowdstrike/ThreatConnect/USIC Narrative have tried and failed to 'debunk' is the download speed of the files, pointing to a physical copying of files using a flash drive on site, which the mid-2017 Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) report cited in attacking the entire 'Russian hacking of the DNC' Narrative.
Furthermore, according to Adam Carter, there is no evidence to support Guccifer 2.0's claims to have hacked the Clinton Foundation. But the Russians targeting the Clinton Foundation to find kompromat on the Clintons is at least more plausible than them attacking the DNC in order to find dirt regarding the Democrats' rigging their primary against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. The question remains who left the name 'Warren Flood' (even if this individual was not himself directly involved) in the Microsoft Office 2007 metadata 'the Russian officer of the GRU' managing Guccifer 2.0 left behind -- and then clumsily tried to cover their tracks by planting the Cyrillic name and patronymic of the first Soviet secret police chairman Felix Edmundovich Dzerzhinsky (Фе́ликс Эдму́ндович).
Unfortunately for the DNCers or Crowdstrikers pretending to be Russians, trying to blame Moscow's horses after the barn door had already been opened by Seth Rich or other sources for Wikileaks, they botched the job. And whistleblowers inside the NSA have to know that the Guccifer 2.0 data dump originated inside the continental United States, not through Russia. Thanks to the existence of hard to censor Blockchain based platforms like Steemit, the truth cannot be hidden. All the dirty deep state and Democrats caught with their hands in the IC cookie jar using intelligence community resources for partisan, false flagging ends can do is obfuscate and throw more crap at the wall to see what sticks. Which it appears, based on the increasing desperation of their statements, individuals like former CIA director John Brennan fear may not be enough to keep them from facing justice. Overall, we agree with what former director of the Office of Management and Budget for President Ronald Reagan David Stockman wrote this week, about the inseparable link between the deep state war on Trump and the deteriorating American economy:
The Imperial City is becoming swamped in conflict, dysfunction, distraction, distemper and massive decision circuit overload.
We call it State-Wreck and its been heading this way for a long-time. But the Donald is the coup d' grace in flesh and blood. He will soon have the Imperial City tied in knots, and that's even if he doesn't fire Robert Mueller, which most surely he should and might.
Either way, there is a massive partisan blood-letting coming and the ordinarily trans-partisan Deep State will be right in the middle of the brawl. That's because partisan Democratic hacks----led by the detestable former CIA director John Brennan---- got way beyond their skis, and baldly high-jacked the tools of the Deep State in a desperate effort to prevent the election and inauguration of Donald Trump.
But the unveiling of what lies in its vasty deep is now beyond recall. The very real attempt by the Obama/Clinton leadership of the CIA/FBI/NSC/NSA/DNI/State/Homeland Security complex to meddle in the 2016 election against the Donald will all come out----even as the Dems and their legal trolls on Mueller's witch-hunting squad become ever more shrill in their McCarthyite hysteria about the Russians.
Moreover, the coming quasi-civil war will potentially bring both indictments of Obama's election meddlers and a counter-reaction from a Mueller based campaign to oust the Donald. Indeed, what portends in the months ahead is more incendiary than anything to rock the Imperial City during the last century, at least.
