The Russian government not only hacks computers to get information, they also plant false information to attack their foes.

What? Child porn was found on your computer? That is a shame.
Courtesy of The New York Times:  

Hacking is not only a good way to get real information, like the emails of the D.N.C., but a relatively easy and usually untraceable way to plant fake information. For example, when unidentified hackers last year broke into the computers of a government research center in Lithuania, they stole nothing, but planted bogus reports on its website that the country’s stoutly pro-American president had worked as an escort and K.G.B. informer while a student in Leningrad during the Soviet era. 

A similar break-in affecting the Lithuanian military’s website replaced a bland announcement about a coming NATO exercise with a fake statement that presented the exercise as part of a plan to annex Kaliningrad, a Russian exclave on the Baltic Sea, and join it with Lithuania, a member of NATO. 

The supposed NATO plan outlined in the phony text closely mimicked methods used by Moscow in 2014 to annex Crimea and stir up unrest in eastern Ukraine, including the seizure of military posts and police stations and calls for the establishment of the Kaliningrad People’s Republic. 

Written in faulty Lithuanian, the statement was “immediately obvious as a fake,” said Rimtautas Cerniauskas, the director of Lithuania’s National Cyber Security Center, which was set up last year in response to increased alarm over Russian aggression. 

But, he added, the stunt nonetheless succeeded in distracting cyberdefense staff members from their normal work for days and in spreading a lie that, though immediately exposed, polluted discussion about NATO.

But that is not the extent of it:

This blurring of all boundaries between truth and falsehood in the service of operational needs has created a climate in Russia in which even the most serious and grotesque accusations, like those involving pedophilia, are simply a currency for settling scores.

Much of this article talks about the Russians hacking computers to place child pornography on its hard drive and even send those photos and videos to other sites that then will lead back to their victim's computer.

This should send a chill right up the spine of journalists and opponents of Putin's puppet president here in the US as to the kinds of tactics that might be directed their way if they make life too hard for Comrade Trump.

It also might explain just how Donald Trump became a puppet of Vladimir Putin.

Just something to think about.

      If you gave $ or put your name on the DNC email you are in the Russian database.
      Right before the DNC hacking came out I started to recieve weird test messages & malware that my anti-virus took out. I keep sending to my ISP under the abuse, b/c I didn't know to send to the IC3 (FBI) or anywhere else. It wasn't until the DNC hacks came out I released what was happening! They have all of our emails since 08 and POTUS is saying the malware attempts go back to 08, and yes I haven't given to DNC since 08 but I'm being phished, weird text & malware being sent.
      We should do a class action against Trump for new computers for all of us who suffered possible damage to our computers.
      Lets make that fucker pay!

  2. It could be that Comrade Trump doesn't dare quit, and is behaving the way he is in hopes of getting fired. "Not my fault, Vlad! They forced me out!"

    1. Dear Puttie-puss,
      "...please don't put kiddie porn on my computer! not just 'cause I don't know how to use my computer to access it (it is just for show in my office), but other people could find it. Pussy-grabbing is one thing, but kiddie porn, maybe not so much...." Yours, Donnie

    Pardon me if I feel no sympathy for so-called "journalists" in this country should they be hacked. They are complicit in the rise of NPM and may they reap exactly what they've sown.

    1. It's not the journalists that are going to be hacked.

      It's the politicians.

      Mostly the Democratic politicians. Anyone the Russians want gone will be hacked and set up.

      And with predecessors like Anthony Wiener how will they be able to defend themselves? Just look at the damage James O'Keefe has done with his blatant false videos. Look at the Deplorable that shot up the pizza place.

      These red neck morons will believe anything negative that is handed to them as long as it fits their reality. This election proved that.

      A few false stories and a plant on a computer and a politicians career is ruined.

      I think they'll be targeting Elizabeth Warren.

    Got on to Adam Jentleson's (Harry Reed's Deputy Chief of Staff) twitter feed.

    Read this one to start with.

    "I'll say it: NYT interviewed Reid for this story. He said things contrary to the story. NYT discarded the interview."

    THIS STORY:Investigating Donald Trump, F.B.I. Sees No Clear Link to Russia


    "Law enforcement officials say that none of the investigations so far have found any conclusive or direct link between Mr. Trump and the Russian government. And even the hacking into Democratic emails, F.B.I. and intelligence officials now believe, was aimed at disrupting the presidential election rather than electing Mr. Trump."

    So ...... what to do now. HRC won the election if it had been held like elections are held in every other democracy in the world. Will the electoral college do what it should do. Will it follow the will of the people or will it follow some BS set of rules which don't really comply with the rules of democracy in this day and age. Time will tell eh. A Trump presidency will be a disaster for the very people who elected him and you can see that as plainly as the nose on your face based on who he has surrounded himself with and in his cabinet picks. Are the Trump supporters that stupid that they aren't even getting the message now. They believe Trump when he says he's putting the uber rich in power in his cabinet because they'll negotiate with them? Really? What a bunch of BS! Just what kind of people are in the (archaic, non democractic) electoral college and can they vote their conscience. If they don't, they're just a bunch of useless twerps who have failed the American people bigly.

      "the rules of democracy in this day and age"

      The US isn't a democracy. It's a representative republic. Basing elections on the popular vote means presidents would be elected by the people in the 15 largest cities. The whole point of the electoral college is to try to level the playing field for rural, less populous states. It's all fun and games until it doesn't work in your favor.

      5:20. Hillary lost. America chose Trump. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean you will get what you want by stomping your feet and crying like a baby. The electoral college will do what it is intended to do and vote the will of the people. Trump will be President.

      7:03: Hillary WON by a whopping 2,650,000 votes!!!

    4. Anonymous8:10 AM

      She won nothing. She lost. She actually got trounced. Big time. Terrible candidate. Terrible.

    5. The point of the electoral college was to give more say to the SLAVE STATES. You know, where the uneducated, low information, gullible, easily conned folk live.

      If the most educated among our population live in those 15 cities, we could do a lot worse than letting them have an EQUAL say in our government.

      And way to go you anonymous COWARDS 6:44, 7:03, 8:10. Why don't you put a name on your Deplorable blather?

    You're worried about someone planting false stories? You repeated false stories here. In particular, the demonstrably false claim that the Podesta emails were doctored, altered, faked. Have you no shame?

    THIS MUST happen:

      The Russia story is not going to go away. The fact that the president-elect is not attending security briefings and is spending his time questioning the honesty of the intelligence community should trouble every American.

      Donald Trump and the Republican Party have a major scandal on their hands, and Democrats are going to investigate and hound Trump until they get the truth about Russia’s role in getting the Republican candidate elected to be the next president.

    2. But that isn't going to happen.

      First, the electors only read stuff on their own right wing web sites so they won't be reading this stuff. Even if it was main stream, they wouldn't read it and it would be dismissed as sour grapes from the left or simply misinformation

      Nothing is going to dissuade these turds from putting a Fascist in the White House. And he won't be impeached, not matter what he does, because the Republicans in the House and Senate think they can control him and they are much too pleased with winning and being able lot own the Supreme Court for the next 25 years.

      The only thing that will save us is if Trump drops dead. Always a possibility at his age but not something we can count on.

      And Hillary STILL won! Some x CIA are saying we should have a new Election! I agree.
      I don't think we can depend on the EC when PamBondi is listed as being on there. She was one of Trumps #Pay4Play AG's!
