Just when you think John McCain cannot go any lower, he goes overseas to Germany and says about Trump, "that's how Dictators get started". Quote
Now the 100% SPECULATED allegations about Russian hacks are being called basically, worse than physical attacks that killed American like 9-11! McCain Says "I view it more seriously than a physical attack."
Does John McCain know that the ONLY published and traced 'to the source' attack to take place on election systems was in the US state of Georgia? There were 10 SEPARATE attacks there alone. Apparently they have some knowledgeable staff in their IT Dept down in GA (that's actually rare), because their security person was able to trace the IP back repeatedly to Obama's DHS (Department of Homeland Security).
I personally have spent over a decade in technology, and have been dealing with security for quite a while. I can tell you this breaks ALL procedures for ethically hacking any system that you do not own. The Federal Government cannot pull BlackHat attacks on the Election systems of an individual state. If they state agrees and are notified they can make a "Rules of Engagement" to go with their IT Security Audit that basically says what the Ethical Penetration Testers can and cannot do to test the network security. That way they do not damage mission critical systems that are up and running. What the DHS did was NOT ethical. GA Hacking Source
Some other states have also claimed that some people were attacking their gateways and servers, but none of those that I saw had an active IPS (Intrusion Prevention System), or any other countermeasures in place, not even good IDS logging. They did not say they were able to trace the source IP's of the attacks back to the source. If they did, they didn't report. That would make sense if they were traced to the DHS also.
Despite what the MSM says, they do NOT know how this works. They have also kept off any reputable IT Security professionals from TV because no reputable person would say Russia hacked anyone in particular without evidence to analyze. Also, Russian criminals are some of the largest hacker groups in the world. They love attacking people in the USA. I suggest a good read for anyone who knows basic computer engineering and wants to learn more buy "Hacking Exposed". There are many editions and cover all the simple stuff, also the much more advanced attack vectors. They arent small books either. They get into details. They even give you enough knowledge to start breaking into your own systems if you want.
HRC kept her server a secret. Because of that, all they were able to say is that 5 people were able to gain access for sure. The "State Actors" conclusion is more based on behavior of the attacker, and what type of exploits/payloads they used. Especially if they have other traced and well known attacks they used. That does not always mean that much though considering a 17 year old was the first one to unlock a carrier iPhone. Many people use the same methods. Sometimes there are only 2-3 ways to get into a certain system. Staying quiet is the goal of many hackers while they mine the data for as long as possible. Once they took HRC's server offline and tampered with it they removed any chance of anyone coming in and saying 100% who did anything. ESPECIALLY if it was a foreign Gov. The only traces gov hackers leave are going to be what they want to leave. Any person in any country can use a pwned system as a relay to appear to originate from that country though, BEFORE even hitting something like TOR to become nearly untraceable unless you catch them in the act without them knowing like GA says they did. Most likely by utilizing a honeypot.
I worked for a Major US city local government IT dept, and over 90% of the hacks we traced, and phishing scams came from Russia or other former Soviet States. They write and sell 0Day exploits over there to whoever has the cash. Those are the same attacks governments will use. They dont have magical hacking capabilities. Everything they have is based on software found in the wild, or Ethical Hackers. Someone in Brazil can appear to originate from Moscow if they want, and they do not need to be Mr.Anderson from the Matrix to do it!
John Podesta was taken by a Phishing email, sometimes called whaling, or spear phishing when they target someone like him. They sent him a targeted, tailored fake email to get his login credentials. His own IT staff when the email was double checked told him it was legit. That was a horrible rookie mistake I was shocked to read in Wikileaks Email ID 34899. If this is what was happening to John Podesta, with the IT Staff he had access to, what the hell happened to HRC's server when she traveled the world connecting to it using 13 different devices, and it was sitting unmonitored in her basement? You think maybe she thinks its the Russians who hacked the DNC because she knows for a fact she was hacked by them? She was most likely extorted if they knew who she was and actually mined her emails too. Her server could have been a large part of the reason they were able to gasin access to the DNC in the first place depending on how long they maintained access for. Just because someone was caught at a certain time does not mean that is when they first hacked it.
Im going to skip Seth Rich, but he fits snugly in here. The point is here, no one has presented proof anywhere. No attack vectors have been mentioned, no specific Malware name, which is something we all know the news just LOVES whenever they hear one. All these attacks they say took place, the entire basis to cause hysteria, and all they have are sources that cannot substantiate anything they claim? They cannot even say the name of the person in most cases? That does not add up at all.
If you check out True The Vote, you will find they have a news section covering this. This is the man behind the research saying roughly 3 million illegitimate votes were cast Trump's voter fraud claims rooted in Alabama man's work Greg Phillips. He said he will NOT release the data for a few months back in late January. He came to his preliminary findings back in late November analyzing voter data that roughly 3 Million votes were cast that should be voided. Once everything is checked and made sure to be accurate, he says it will all be going to Jeff Sessions to prosecute. He says he WILL NOT give him bad data just to speed things up. So we expect that somewhere around April-June.
The ONLY people I have seen so far to illegally vote for Trump were some activists that got in trouble for trying to prove a point on how broken the election system is if you want to break the law. Other than that, Project Veritas has proven beyond doubt that a large scale fraud operation was in place and overseen ultimately by HRC's team. Veritas Voter Fraud Compilation. Also, Greg Phillips has claimed on his Twitter page that multiple districts voted 100% for HRC. Some had more votes than residents in the county. The places that had 100% go to HRC did NOT reflect exit polling at all. His Twitter account is @JumpVote if you want to look at his past tweets.
On top of all this, the same man funding protestors, George Soros, also has his mitts in voting machines Soros Connected Company Has Provided Voting Technology in 16 States. He may not be building machines himself, but I am sure if he wants to get some things accomplished he can afford it.
Voting machines are also ILLEGAL to penetration Test by ethical hackers to ensure security of the ones that ARE networked. Illegal to test Voting Machine Security. So no one can even check them to make sure there is not a backdoor granting access to a 3rd party to change whatever they want.
Here are a few more articles pointing to large scale fraud that went largely unreported.

Could non-citizens decide the November election?
So make of all this what you will. There is more, but I think I have posted enough for now. I would love to hear back from others who have been paying attention to this and have information to share. Also, anyone with PROOF, I would absolutely love to see it. These allegations in themselves are blatant attacks. And knowing the MSM, they know this already better than we do. I am sure they went and devoted many staff to finding "proof" so they could be the first ones to break this Fake News story. They say all the allegations of illegal immigrants voting are false. Especially Don Lemon. I would like to know how you can call something false when no investigation has taken place. If fraud took , it would explain the COMPLETE shock on election night to HRC leaving her SPEECHLESS.
