Washington Times: ‘Hack of DNC’ Theory Losing Ground to VIPS
Aug. 22, 2017 (EIRNS)—The "authoritative" theory that it was a Russian "hack" of the Democratic National Committee’s email server which revealed the DNC’s election-rigging for Hillary Clinton, is now losing ground to the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) Memorandum, which conclusively proves the DNC’s data was leaked, not hacked, Dan Boylan reports in the Aug. 21 Washington Times. The story’s title is: "DNC hack theories considered extreme and fringe now entering mainstream."
Boylan writes, "Theories once considered fringe... have begun entering the mainstream," and the VIPS claims are also strengthened by "reexamining statements made by former players in the drama, including former President Obama...".
The VIPS memo also conflicts with the U.S. intelligence community’s January 2017 claim that it was Russian operatives who orchestrated the cyberattack on the DNC computers, and point blank states that the intelligence agencies "made up" the existence of a "Guccifer 2.0" who had supposedly hacked the DNC network for Russia. Boylan writes,
"The FBI, CIA, and NSA never actually performed any cyberforensic analysis of the documents they claimed were hacked by Guccifer, and [which documents] offered clear evidence that the Russian cyrillic imprint had been superimposed, to pin the ’hack’ on Russia."
Boylan points out that none of the investigators have been able to "get their hands on the DNC’s computer network," for which "Crowdstrike" supposedly created a defense. VIPS leader Ray McGovern says that Crowdstrike could have been complicit in generating the "Russian hack" narrative, and that would explain why neither the FBI, CIA, NSA, nor any other major U.S. intelligence or law enforcement outfit has ever fully examined the DNC hack. McGovern points out, that "[Fired FBI Director] Jim Comey could have gotten authority to access the DNC server, but he never wanted to."

The U.S. situation is extremely dire and dangerous. The coup operation is in high gear to box in President Trump, to do the very opposite of what he promised, and that for which he won the election: to restore the economy (specifically beginning with reinstating Glass-Steagall,) and to stop the foreign policy of wars — the British Empire policy.
Trump's rally Wednesday night in Phoenix fortunately turned out not to be the bloody battleground the color revolutionists were gunning for. As the crowd was departing, a street fracas, instigated by an attack on police by a few protesters (likely antifa,) was held to a minimum. Undeterred, the coup crowd used the event as the occasion for hysterical accusations that Trump is unfit, demented, unhinged, and must be put out of office, if not by impeachment, then by the 25th Amendment.
Leading the charge was James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence (2010-2017) under Obama. Clapper, who treasonously covered up for the Saudi networks behind 9/11, appeared on CNN in the wee hours of Aug. 23, to comment on the Arizona rally, and speak against Trump remaining President! "I really question his ability to be — his fitness to be — in this office.... How much longer does the country have to — to borrow a phrase — endure this nightmare?" CNN's host Don Lemon denounced Trump at length, as "unhinged." CNN's commentator Ana Navarro tweeted that Trump, "maybe" is displaying "early-on-set [sic] dementia."
Obviously, the danger in all this, lies not in the future; i.e., not, "if and whether" the enemy operations will succeed in ousting Trump and taking down the national institutions of the U.S. along with him. The danger is here and now.
Look at the U.S. economy. Millions are suffering from the breakdown. But Trump is under pressure to stay in Wall Street's grasp; especially, that there be no Glass-Steagall. In Arizona last night, Trump rightly reiterated his goal of creating jobs; he again stated that this will have a "tremendously positive impact on race relations...." But apart from a few jobs here and there, such as in West Virginia and Pennsylvania coal country — saved by exporting coal to Europe, the situation remains bleak. A dramatic reflection of the collapse is seen in the worsening performance of the entire freight rail system east of the Mississippi River. On CSX (one of the two main operators,) a train run that might have taken a few days, which is already a long ride, to go from Chicago to western Tennessee, recently took 18 days! The delays and jam-ups are now spreading throughout the 21,000 miles of the CSX grid.
Look at the international conflict zones. In Afghanistan, the only approach that can build up the nation and create peace, requires collaboration among all in the region: Iran, Pakistan, India, the nations of Central Asia, Russia, and China. But Trump is under pressure to pursue unilateral action, and even to give in to ploys to try to play off India against the BRICS.
The means to lift us up and out of this collapse and geopolitics is to go with the New Silk Road perspective, and in particular in the U.S., to go for emergency action on the "Four Laws" put out by Lyndon LaRouche. Go for mass jobs creation. As Helga Zepp-LaRouche spoke of this yesterday, the crucial issue remains replacing the old paradigm with the new paradigm for development and peace. Remember, Donald Trump's election victory Nov. 6, 2016, was not a "national" matter, but an international event of great and historic import.
Look at today's affairs in the long arc of human history. The danger of Maidan II in the United States is akin to the danger in the U.S. and Europe at the time of the Weimar Republic. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt got the U.S. out of the Depression, with his New Deal. But Europe sank, and saw the rise of fascism. People must learn from history.
In discussing this yesterday, Lyndon LaRouche issued a call to action: "I am deeply concerned about the situation we're discussing here.... But the point is, we have to take responsibility for backing up what I've been talking about, and what my associates are doing. If we don't do it, we will be destroyed by what [the enemy] is doing.... We have to win this .... the existence of the U.S. depends on doing that job. It's not making suggestions, but getting a victory over the things that are destroying the U.S. from doing its mission.
"And good luck to us all!"
