A Conspiracy to Defraud the United States

I’ve spent two days reading and researching the details of Robert Mueller’s recent indictment of 12 Russian Nationals.

Here’s what I got from reading the text of Mueller’s indictment: 12 Officers of the Russian GRU had orders to attack the United States.

This is a fact and facts are not open to debate.

Furthermore, these military units used propaganda and psychological warfare as part of a broad campaign to sabotage our 2016 elections to place a Russian asset in the office of The President.

As stated in the 2016 NATO Handbook of Information Warfare,  the goal of a Russian cyber attack is regime change.

The use of military against a civilian population makes this an act of war by the Russian Federation against the people of the United States.

The Russian Federation had help from unnamed American co-conspirators in the United States.

In order to carry out their activities to interfere in U.S. political and electoral processes without detection of their Russian affiliation, Defendants conspired to obstruct the lawful functions of the United States government through fraud and deceit, including by making expenditures in connection with the 2016 U.S. presidential election without proper regulatory disclosure; failing to register as foreign agents carrying out political activities within the United States; and obtaining visas through false and fraudulent statements.

Wikileaks BOMBSHELL Reveals that Hillary Clinton is Satanic! Wikileaks BOMBSHELL Reveals Hillary Clinton is Satanic!

The work of destroying the first woman nominee for President requires an assault on reality.  So, the party of patriotism and personal accountability is in the odd place of colluding with and using the strategies of a Russian President who is no friend to the United States.

From the Brookings Institute:

There is significant evidence that individuals acting at the direction of or on the behalf of Russia—the degree of coordination is unclear—are attempting to use organizational doxing to influence the United States presidential election. As Harvard law professor Jack Goldsmith noted, this raises a number of scary questions regarding preserving the integrity of U.S. election results. It is not entirely clear what is motivating the DNC document dumps or the apparent targeting of Hillary Clinton; some speculate the aim is to benefit Donald Trump, though a plausible goal might simply be to insert…

Disinformation: The Spread of False Stories

From the New York Times, August 28, 2016

A Powerful Russian Weapon: The Spread of False Stories

The planting of false stories is nothing new; the Soviet Union devoted considerable resources to that during the ideological battles of the Cold War. Now, though, disinformation is regarded as an important aspect of Russian military doctrine, and it is being directed at political debates in target countries with far greater sophistication and volume than in the past.

The flow of misleading and inaccurate stories is so strong that both NATO and the European Union have established special offices to identify and refute disinformation, particularly claims emanating from Russia.

The Kremlin’s clandestine methods have surfaced in the United States, too, American officials say, identifying Russian intelligence as the likely source of leaked Democratic National Committee emails that embarrassed Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

The Kremlin uses both conventional media — Sputnik, a news agency, and RT, a television outlet — and covert channels, as in Sweden, that are almost always untraceable.

Russia exploits both approaches in a comprehensive assault, Wilhelm Unge, a spokesman for the Swedish Security Service, said this year when presenting the agency’s annual report. “We mean everything from internet trolls to propaganda and misinformation spread by media companies like RT and Sputnik,” he said.

The fundamental purpose of dezinformatsiya, or Russian disinformation, experts said, is to undermine the official version of events — even the very idea that there is a true version of events — and foster a kind of policy paralysis.

Disinformation most famously succeeded in early 2014 with the initial obfuscation about deploying Russian forces to seize Crimea. That summer, Russia pumped out a dizzying array of theories about the destruction of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine, blaming the C.I.A. and, most outlandishly, Ukrainian fighter pilots who had mistaken the airliner for the Russian presidential aircraft.
