I Was the Homeland Security Adviser to Trump. We’re Being Hacked.

The magnitude of this national security breach is hard to overstate.

By Thomas P. Bossert

Mr. Bossert was the homeland security adviser to President Trump and deputy homeland security adviser to President George W. Bush.

· Dec. 16, 2020

 

· At the worst possible time, when the United States is at its most vulnerable — during a presidential transition and a devastating public health crisis — the networks of the federal government and much of corporate America are compromised by a foreign nation. We need to understand the scale and significance of what is happening.

· Last week, the cybersecurity firm FireEye said it had been hacked and that its clients, which include the United States government, had been placed at risk. This week, we learned that SolarWinds, a publicly traded company that provides software to tens of thousands of government and corporate customers, was also hacked.

Trump is really driving away the moderates IMO.

Bob,

I have really been struck by the number of high-level people who have announced that they are leaving the Republican Party in just the last three days: Steve Schmidt, the campaign manager for John McCain; the Head of the Republican Party in New Hampshire; and the Mayor of Dodge City, Kansas.

It feels like there is a major shift taking place. The moderate Republicans are either going to have to form a new political party, or find some way to drive the crazies out.

I hope you're right Steve. But if the Dems can't get Mitch Mc Connell out of the way, the Biden Presidency will have as much teeth as the Gerald Ford administration. The Dems earlier were counted out from a sweep. But now the Georgia polls are running neck and neck.

and if McConnell is put to pasture after the Atlanta runoff, the GOP goes the way the Whig party went in the 1850's, KAPUT, FINI, TOAST, DONE... 

Nope, the Dem's will lose the Senate debacle, McConnell will remain in his perch (after all, whose going to defend his wife and her probable communist Chinese ties?), the media ORACLE'S have spoken-decreed (they, the Fortune 500 and the Tech's cleaned up this cycle). 

And besides, with 120+. House members who probably committed sedition, the house will have its non-legislative work cut out for it... put 120+ GOP House members in prison or on notice, the Dem's will have one hell of a majority in the House. For a second or two...

I don't believe the Dems can win in Georgia. There is no way the real and highest powers to be in that state ( in the entire nation ) will allow another slim Dem victory like the 2020 presidential election. My guess is that we can't even imagine the weapons of vote disinfranchisement they will dream up and use.

And because this is FOR ALL OF THE MARBLES in Federal control, the biggest national wealth powers to be will pump whatever it takes into the Repub coffers in Georgia...even if it's billions! Sheldon Adelson type wealth.

Rand Paul Says Letting People Vote Who Normally Don't Vote Will 'Change The Outcome' Of Elections, Which Is, Uh, How Voting Works

"I'm very, very concerned that if you solicit votes from typically non-voters, that you will affect and change the outcome."

Nuclear weapons agency breached amid massive cyber onslaught

By NATASHA BERTRAND 12/17/2020

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/12/17/nuclear-agency-hacked-officials-inform-congress-447855

“Hackers accessed systems at the National Nuclear Security Administration, which maintains the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile.

The Energy Department and National Nuclear Security Administration, which maintains the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile, have evidence that hackers accessed their networks as part of an extensive espionage operation that has affected at least half a dozen federal agencies, officials directly familiar with the matter said.

On Thursday, DOE and NNSA officials began coordinating notifications about the breach to their congressional oversight bodies after being briefed by Rocky Campione, the chief information officer at DOE.

They found suspicious activity in networks belonging to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), Sandia and Los Alamos national laboratories in New Mexico and Washington, the Office of Secure Transportation and the Richland Field Office of the DOE. The hackers have been able to do more damage at FERC than the other agencies, the officials said, but did not elaborate.”

 

And Donald Trump has done NOTHING. He needs to be removed today, before he destroys this country.
