Default Merry Christmas and Just To Be Clear

Merry Christmas Mr Rufus Prime!

Just To Be Clear
"First they tried rioting, then they tried threatening electors, then they claimed the Russians hacked the voting machines, when all this failed, they came up with a new ploy, Donald Trump’s election isn’t legitimate because the Russians interfered in the election in favor of Trump, so the electors shouldn’t vote for him. But let’s be clear, they didn’t vote illegally, they didn’t hack the voting machines, no, what the Russians are being accused of is hacking the e-mails that Wikileaks released. In other words, according to the Democrats, the electors should overturn the legitimately won election, because the Russians exposed the lies, deceit, corruption, and collusion, of the Clinton campaign, the DNC, and the media."

May God bless and keep you in the New Year!

President Barack Obama also said 35 Russian diplomats have been ordered to leave the country
A White House statement described Russia's alleged election meddling as "unacceptable"
(CNN)President Barack Obama took unprecedented steps Thursday retaliating against what the administration described as "Significant Malicious Cyber-Enabled Activities," including sanctioning six Russian individuals and five Russian entities as well as ordering Russian diplomats to leave the country.

This is the first time the names of Russian officials involved in the hacking have become public on the sanctions list.
Obama also said in a separate statement that 35 Russian diplomats have been ordered to leave the country, and two Russian compounds are being closed under Thursday's actions.
A White House statement described the consensus from the Intelligence Community that Russia's meddling in US elections via cyberhacking as "unacceptable and will not be tolerated."
"Russia's cyberactivities were intended to influence the election, erode faith in US democratic institutions, sow doubt about the integrity of our electoral process, and undermine confidence in the institutions of the US government," the statement said. "These actions are unacceptable and will not be tolerated."
According to statements from the White House and the Treasury Department, the government has sanctioned nine entities and individuals: the GRU and the FSB, two Russian intelligence services; four individual officers of the GRU; three companies that provided material support to the GRU's operations; and two Russian individuals for using cyber-enabled means to cause misappropriation of funds and personal identifying information.
Obama also said in the statement announcing that the diplomats have been ordered to leave the country, that those individuals and their families were given 72 hours to leave the United States.
"These actions follow repeated private and public warnings that we have issued to the Russian government, and are a necessary and appropriate response to efforts to harm U.S. interests in violation of established international norms of behavior," Obama said in the statement.
President-elect Donald Trump said Wednesday that Americans should "get on with our lives" when he was asked about the expected White House announcement to place sanctions on Russia.
"I think we ought to get on with our lives," he told reporters Wednesday night at the Mar-a-Lago in West Palm Beach, Florida. "I think that computers have complicated lives very greatly. The whole age of computer has made it where nobody knows exactly what is going on. We have speed, we have a lot of other things, but I'm not sure we have the kind, the security we need."
Trump's statement splits with Republican leaders on Capitol Hill.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, a Republican, called the sanctions "overdue," adding that it is an "appropriate way to end eight years of failed policy with Russia."
"Russia does not share America's interests," he said in a statement Thursday. "In fact, it has consistently sought to undermine them, sowing dangerous instability around the world. While today's action by the administration is overdue, it is an appropriate way to end eight years of failed policy with Russia. And it serves as a prime example of this administration's ineffective foreign policy that has left America weaker in the eyes of the world."

Why is this not Mutiny?

U.S. President-elect Donald Trump praised Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday for declining to publicly retaliate against sanctions levied at his government by the Obama administration.

Writing that sentence made my face hurt, but here is the president-elect’s tweet, which he subsequently pinned to the top of his page:


Here is a list of journalists murdered in Russia since 2000.

Here is the cybersecurity analysis that the FBI and Department of Homeland Security confirmed on Friday accurately described Russia’s cyberattack intrusion into our election for the apparent purposes of helping Donald Trump’s election.

Here is a report on the Dutch prosecutorial inquiry that found that Russia had supplied separatists in Ukraine, which Russia had invaded, with the missile system that shot down a passenger plane in 2014, killing all 298 on board.

President Barack Obama announced on Thursday sweeping sanctions against Russia for its role in hacking the Democratic National Committee for the apparent purposes of influencing the election for Trump. The president-elect said he would look at the intelligence community’s evidence that this is what happened, but that he feels “it's time for our country to move on to bigger and better things.”

Whether or not Trump's latest note of praise for Putin means he will undo the sanctions once he enters office is unclear. If he does, he will face political pushback from his own Republican caucus, with Republican congressional leadership and prominent senators having said Obama’s actions didn’t go far enough.

Obama issued economic sanctions against Russian intelligence agencies, individual Russian intelligence officials, and others. He also closed two consulates and expelled 35 diplomats he described as intelligence agents.

The Russian consulate in San Francisco responded on Friday by lamenting the fact that these officials had to leave the country on such short notice and by saying one of them was a professional cook.

Donald Trump takes the oath of office on Jan. 20, 2017.

I really don't think there will be any push back. bo waited until now to actually do something, then run and hide and let the next guy handle the mess he created.. Why is it now a meddling in the election thing and not before the election? Maybe because it is fiction in the first place. Putin don't care, he is just waiting.. Putin is patient and a bunch smarter than bo.
Trump will roll back all that bo has done. If not, most of it. But we will let history tell the story in a few weeks.... I could be wrong...

Malware that has been linked to Russian hackers was discovered in a laptop of a Vermont power utility laptop, raising fears about the vulnerability of the U.S. power grid. The code was connected to the hacking operation that has been dubbed Grizzly Steppe, which is the same one that is suspected of having carried out operations to try to influence the presidential election. The laptop was not connected to the power grid, the Burlington Electric Department said in a statement. “We took immediate action to isolate the laptop and alerted federal officials of this finding,” the company added.

The discovery came a day after the Department of Homeland Security sent out a public alert about the malware code. "We acted quickly to scan all computers in our system for the malware signature. We detected the malware in a single Burlington Electric Department laptop not connected to our organization's grid systems," the company said.

The Washington Post was first to report the story although it initially claimed the Russian hackers had penetrated the U.S. electrical grid before toning down the story once the Vermont utility said the laptop was not connected.


Officials expressed confidence there was no damage to the electrical infrastructure. "The grid is not in danger," Vermont Public Service Commissioner Christopher Recchia told the Burlington Free Press. "The utility flagged it, saw it, notified appropriate parties and isolated that one laptop with that malware on it." Still, that doesn’t mean they aren’t concerned and Gov. Peter Shumlin called for a “a full and complete investigation of this incident.” Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont noted that the discovery is “beyond hackers having electronic joy rides—this is now about trying to access utilities to potentially manipulate the grid and shut it down in the middle of winter.”

It’s far from clear when the malware entered the computer and what the intent of the hackers might have been. They could have wanted to disrupt operations, sure, but also may have simply wanted to know whether a breach was possible. An unnamed source tells Reuters the whole thing could be the result of a much less nefarious episode, “such as visiting a questionable website,” meaning it’s possible Russian hackers weren’t directly involved at all.

Officials had already been concerned about the safety of the country's power grid, particualrly considering it has come under attack in the past. The Wall Street Journal reports:

American officials believe a cyber-campaign against the U.S. energy industry in 2014 resulted in at least 17 companies’ systems being penetrated, including four electric utilities. Their identities aren’t publicly known. The U.S. power grid is a gigantic system of interconnected electric networks, which means successfully taking down one or more utilities could destabilize larger areas of the grid.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has said the attackers in the 2014 blitz were able to steal data and gain private network access, which could allow them to remotely adjust equipment settings.
And Russian hackers have been known take an interest in utilities. Hackers broke into a utility in Western Ukraine in 2014 and shut down substations in the region, leaving tens of thousands without power, notes Bloomberg. Earlier this month, Ukraine said it was investigating a suspected cyber attack on Kiev's power grid.

Default Obama or Nero

Obama seems intent on starting as many fires as he can before leaving office!

A new Cold War with Russia: After eight years of relentlessly mocking anyone who said Russia was a major geopolitical threat to the United States (most famously including his 2012 presidential opponent, Mitt Romney) Barack Obama suddenly realized: “You know what? Russia is a major threat!”

He also awoke to the dangers of cyber-warfare, after an entire presidency of treating electronic espionage as a purely political problem to be minimized and spun away, because taking it seriously made him look bad. Who can forget how Obama left victims of the OPM hack twisting in the wind for weeks, because the administration didn’t want to admit how serious the attack was?

But then a top Democrat political operative fell for a crude phishing scam, and the Democratic National Committee got hacked, so Obama… well, he still didn’t take cyber-espionage seriously. He slapped the snooze bar again, because as one anonymous official put it, they thought Hillary Clinton was a cinch to win the 2016 election, “so they were willing to kick the can down the road.”

No, it was Hillary Clinton’s loss in the election, and the desperate push to damage President-elect Trump’s legitimacy, that made the president who politely ignored China hacking 25 million American citizens’ private data get tough on information security. Until now, states involved in cyber-espionage never got anything worse than a few carefully-chosen words of sour disapproval from the expiring administration, but the Russkies received a sprinkling of sanctions, and 35 diplomats were expelled.

Russia responded by unleashing an army of ducks and trolls from the depths of the Kremlin. The New Cold War is only a few days old, and it’s already weirder than the old one was.

Presumably Obama thinks he’s maneuvered Trump into a position that will make whatever rapprochement he might have entertained with Moscow more difficult, or at least more politically costly for the new President. The end result might be easier relations between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, and a lingering memory of how little Barack Obama cared about cybersecurity until it was politically expedient for him to freak out.
