According to a report publish in the CIA backed Washington Post, Russia attempted to interfere with the 2016 election. Presumably they did this to get oligarchs an artful deal on more overpriced real estate in Atlantic City or Hurricane battered Florida. The meat of the article was buried further down, because facts should never get in the way of perceptions when those perceptions are forged inside the beltway.

On June 5th of this year the Intercept published a report that included leaked documents from the NSA, as the Intercept has done with Edward Snowden's leaks and others. The report detailed an alleged attempt by Russian intelligence to gain access to computers used for email purposes by an American manufacturer of election equipment. Later that same day, an NSA contract employee, former Senior Airwoman Reality Winner, was arrested for leaking to the media. She is being held without bail.
The now obliviously false narrative that Russia intelligence influenced the outcome of the election through hacking is coming apart at the seams. Security researchers in the private sector have determined that malware allegedly used to hack the DNC and Podesta emails is commercially available and Ukrainian not Russian in origin.
The idea that Russian security services hacked the Democratic National Committee's emails and released them to Wikileaks in order to cause the election of Donald Trump has bounced off the walls of the beltway's echo chamber so many times it is as deafening as one would imagine the four trumpets in the book o
The battle to launch a recounts in three states by the Green Party lead by Jill Stein heated up today with a switch of court venues from state to federal court in Pennsylvania. President elect Trump was again sighted on twitter without adult supervision to call Stein a “Fraud.” The real focus of the recount effort may be better placed in Wisconsin.
On Wednesday Jill Stein successfully engaged the Wisconsin board of elections in a recount. The Green Party managed to raise the necessary funds to pay for this effort and have raised a total of $5.2 million so far to include Pennsylvania and Michigan. This is despite attacks from Donald Trump as well as liberal elements of the media.
I will not be allowed to vote in this election. My registration has been stricken from the rolls. I can prove it. I know how it was done, who did it and I have a paper trail. I'm not alone. I can prove, with paper trail, that at least one other person was illegally stricken from the Ohio voter rolls. In all, 1.2 million people were purged in Ohio. An unknown but large number of them, like the two us us were purged illegally. Donald Trump is claiming that the election is rigged, though I doubt he has the intellectual capacity to understand how.
Bruce Schneier is the Bill Nye of computer security. He has made a career of both as a cryptographer and as someone who can make computer security issues accessible. I've been reading his works for over twenty years. I fought to have has first book Applied Cryptography used as a text when I was in my third year in college. In his field, he is an absolute heavyweight. He is also a noted civil libertarian on privacy issues and a board member of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which for the unfamiliar, is the ACLU of the internet.
A properly defrauded election has multiple components. Predictive polling is needed to keep the level of fraud within the margin or error of exit polls. The exit polls must be skewed by a low voter turnout through a variety of methods of suppression. In the case of Rhode Island the fingerprints of the DNC are all over voter suppression and a resultant cover up.
Local election integrity activist Peter Johnson filed suit in federal court yesterday, July 11, against Edison Media Research Inc. (EMR), a New Jersey company that conducts exit polls that media outlets rely on to report election results.
