Joe Biden’s Former IT Director, Warren Flood, Implicated in ‘Russia Hacked the DNC Email’ Narrative

CAP

 

On June 16, 2019, we presented arguments against the Mueller gang’s assertion that the DNC was hacked by Russians. Cyber expert Yaacov Apelbaum posted an incredible report with information basically proving that the DNC was not hacked by the Russians.

Today we have support implicating an IT Direct0r, Warren Flood, connected to Joe Biden.  Flood is linked to the ‘Russia hacked the DNC hoax’.

Last year we reported a series of arguments proving that there is no proof that Russians hacked the DNC.  These arguments came from cyber expert Yaacov Apelbaum whose first argument was this –

According to the WaPo (using CrowdStrike, DOJ, and their other usual hush-hush government sources in the know), the attack was perpetrated by a Russian unit lead by Lieutenant Captain Nikolay Kozachek who allegedly crafted a malware called X-Agent and used it to get into the network and install keystroke loggers on several PCs. This allowed them to see what the employees were typing and take screenshots of the employees’ computer.

This is pretty detailed information, but if this was the case, then how did the DOJ learn all of these ‘details’ and use them in the indictments without the FBI ever forensically evaluating the DNC/HRC computers? And since when does the DOJ, an organization that only speaks the language of indictments use hearsay and 3rd parties like the British national Matt Tait (a former GCHQ collector and a connoisseur of all things related to Russian collusion), CrowdStrike, or any other evidence lacking chain of custody certification as a primary source for prosecution?

A second point by Apelbaum was –

… that three of the Russian GRU officers on the DOJ wanted list were allegedly working concurrently on multiple non-related projects like interfering with the 2016 United States elections (both HRC and DNC) while at the same time they were also allegedly hacking anti-doping agencies.

Above are pictures of the individuals the FBI says were working on both the DNC/HRC email hacking and the Olympic doping projects.

The same guys were working on both projects which is all but impossible. (Do we really know if they’re even Russians?)

Apelbaum argues –

The fact that the three had multiple concurrent high impact and high visibility project assignments is odd because this is not how typical offensive cyber intelligence teams operate. These units tend to be compartmentalized, they are assigned to a specific mission, and the taskforce stays together for the entire duration of the project.

Next Apelbaum questioned the Mueller gang’s assertion that the ‘hacker’ named Guccifer 2.0 was a Russian –

Any evidence that Guccifer 2.0 is Russian should be evaluated while keeping these points in mind:

  1. He used a Russian VPN service to cloak his IP address, but did not use TOR. Using a proxy to conduct cyber operations is a SOP [Standard Operating Procedure] in all intelligence and LEA [Law Enforcement Agency] agencies. [i.e. Russia would have masked their VPN service]

  2. He used the AOL email service that captured and forwarded his IP address and the same AOL email to contact various media outlets on the same day of the attack. This is so overt and amateurish that its unlikely to be a mistake and seems like a deliberate attempt to leave traceable breadcrumbs.

  3. He named his Office User account Феликс Эдмундович (Felix Dzerzhinsky), after the founder of the Soviet Secret Police. Devices and accounts used in offensive cyberspace operations use random names to prevent tractability and identification. Why would anyone in the GRU use this pseudonym (beside the obvious reason) is beyond comprehension.

  4. He copied the original Trump opposition research document and pasted it into a new .dotm template (with an editing time of about 2 minutes). This resulted in a change of the “Last Modified by” field from “Warren Flood” to “Феликс Эдмундович” and the creation of additional Russian metadata in the document. Why waste the time and effort doing this?

  5. About 4 hours after creating the ‘Russian’ version of the document, he exported it to a PDF using LibreOffice 4.2 (in the process he lost/removed about 20 of the original pages). This was most likely done to show additional ‘Russian fingerprints’ in the form of broken hyperlink error messages in Russian (Images 4 and 5). Why bother with re-formatting and converting the source documents? Why not just get the raw data out in the original format ASAP?

Apelbaum next discussed Guccifer 2.0 –

In June 21, 2016, Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai from Vice Motherboard interviewed a person who identified himself as “Guccifer 2.0”. During their on-line chat session, the individual claimed that he was Romanian (see transcript of the interview below). His poor Romanian language skills were later used to unmask his Russian identify.

…I’m not a scientific linguist nor do I even know where to find one if my life depended on it, but I’m certain that you can’t reliably determine nationality based on someone impersonating another language or from the use of fake metadata in files. This elaborate theory also has the obvious flaw of assuming that the Russian intelligence services are dumb enough to show up to an interview posing as Romanians without actually being able to read and write flaunt Romanian.

Yesterday we noted that based on the process itself, it is highly unlikely Russians hacked the DNC:

Esteemed NSA whistleblower Bill Binney reported in June 2019 that there was no way Russians hacked the DNC based on the speed of the transfer of the data that was hacked. But according to Apelbaum the transfer speeds is a minor issue here. It’s just an indicator that it would have been difficult for Guccifer 2 who was sitting in Romania to access the DNC system remotely.

Per an illustration from Apelbaum, Guccifer 2 is depicted as the red devil icon below:

CAP

This illustration shows the Crowdstrike was obviously false in its claims that Russia hacked the DNC.

This is because:

1. If Guccifer 2 did it from Romania (the red devil icon on the left of the illustration), he needed a 23 Mbit/s transfer rate. At the time of this hack in 2016, Romania was only supporting 16Mbit/s speeds. But to do that he had to go through all of the red hell in the middle of the illustration, which I don’t believe he did based on the poor technical skill set he demonstrated during his interview with Motherboard vice.

2. If the leak came from the inside (the half green half red icon in the right side of illustration), he had the full 23 Mbit/s transfer rate because he just plugged-in a USB drive to the computer. He also didn’t need any hacking skills because he most likely had full system access.

The Russian story doesn’t stick, Apelbaum closed with this –

The bottom line is that if we want to go beyond the speculative trivia, the pseudo science, and the bombastic unverified claims, we have to ask the real tough questions, mainly: is Guccifer 2.0 even the real attacker and how did he circumvent all of the logs during several weeks of repeated visits while downloading close to 2 GB of data?

We also know that WikiLeaks stated numerous times that Russia did not provide them with the emails they leaked in 2016 and Julian Assange stated that WikiLeaks had nothing to do with Russia.

But of course the Mueller gang never interviewed WikiLeaks in an effort to determine how they received the Clinton emails. Of course the Mueller team could not risk WikiLeaks saying the emails were not received from Russia which would destroy their Russia hacked the DNC fairy tale.

Today we identify Warren Flood, a Biden protege who appears to have helped create the ‘Russia Hacked the DNC’ narrative:

Apelbaum obtained a parts of the Word and PDF versions of the purported DNC Opposition research document showing the original English template and the pasted version into a Russian template and resulting subsequent broken hyperlink error messages in Russian:

CAP

In the image above, on the left it shows the Word doc properties of the document created at 1:38 PM on June 15, 2016. The Company name is given as GSA. This appears to be the General Services Administration (US gov agency), which shows as the Company for MS Office documents created via GSA-contracted copies of MS Word.

(Note that the DNC server wasn’t supposed to be using a GSA-contracted MS Office suite. A number of Democratic politicians and aides (e.g,, many members of the US House of Representatives) had DNC email accounts, but the DNC is a private entity and should not have hosted GSA-contracted software.)

The supposed author of this document is Warren Flood as is noted at the bottom left of the diagram above.  He was Vice President Joe Biden’s IT Director at the White House (which does use GSA registered software).

CAP

But interestingly, if you cross-reference this document to the same document in the verified Wikileaks dump, the original author is Lauren Dillon. Lauren Dillon was the DNC Research Director in charge of GOP/Trump research.

Considering the document’s timestamp of June 15th, 2016, it appears that a user on a computer registered to Warren Flood (GSA) opened the DNC document (authored by Lauren Dillon), copied it, and pasted it to a new document.  Then the user on the Warren Flood computer set the theme language to Russian and modified the document’s ‘Author’ field to Феликс Эдмундович.  After this the user likely uploaded the modified document to the Guccifer 2.0 WordPress website and published it to various media outlets.  (Remember as noted above, Guccifer 2.0 is likely made up.)

Based on the document metadata there is little doubt that either Warren Flood (who BTW, speaks Russian), or someone using his GSA licensed MS Word software created the Russian fingerprint. Also, it’s important to note that several other documents also show this type of manipulation, but they were created by users named “Blake” and “jbs836”.

In terms of the big picture, it is possible that whoever added the Russian fingerprint did this as part of laying the ground work or for future unmasking. We know that in June 2016 the Obama administration (via people like Susan Rice, John Brennan, and Samantha Power) started unmasking Trump campaign officials on the pretext of ‘Russian interference’.  This June 2016 activity overlaps with dates of the Guccifer 2.0 saga.

So, it is possible that Guccifer 2.0 and MSM outlets like the NYTimes who promoted him were part of a larger campaign to affirm Russian interference with the DNC hacks.

If this is indeed the case, then it means that the DNC email leak could implicate Obama administration officials who were doing all this document manipulation on government time and on GSA registered computers all in an effort to tie Russia to the DNC email heist.

Based on information available today, there is no way Russians hacked the DNC. This was made up from the start.  Now we know that the Obama White House, and specifically Warren Flood, is involved in the Russian hoax.

Senate Candidate Tommy Tuberville Releases BLISTERING NEW AD Using President Trump’s Words Against Turncoat Jeff Sessions (VIDEO)

 

Former Auburn Coach Tommy Tuberville won the most votes in the Alabama Republican primary for US Senate on Tuesday night.

Tuberville will face off against former Senator and turncoat Jeff Sessions, who gave America the Mueller investigation in a March 31 runoff election.

According to the final vote totals — Tuberville won the most votes Tuesday despite trailing in the polls.

Tommy Tuberville — 239,173 33.4%
Jeff Sessions — 226,675 31.6%

Tuberville trailed Jeff Sessions by 5 points in the last Club for Growth poll.

Coach Tommy Tuberville on Thursday unveiled a new campaign commercial that highlights President Donald Trump’s displeasure with Jeff Session’s tenure as his appointed attorney general.

“Throughout this campaign, Jeff Sessions has been running around and portraying himself as Donald Trump’s best friend, but this commercial uses the president’s own words to tell some hard truths,” Tuberville said.  “The simple fact is that Jeff Sessions abandoned Donald Trump when he needed him most, and Alabama does not need to elect a cut-and-run senator.”

The 30-second ad, which will soon appear on social media outlets, digital platforms, and television stations across the state.

The script reads:

Video: Television interview on the White House grounds

NBC Host Chuck Todd: If you could have one do-over as president, what would it be? Donald Trump: I would not have appointed Jeff Sessions to be attorney general.

Video: Photo of Sessions with graphic reading “Trump calls Sessions ‘total disaster and

‘embarrassment’ to Alabama – ABC 33/40, 10/11/19”

Announcer: President Trump said D.C. insider Jeff Sessions was a total disaster and an embarrassment to Alabama

Video: Tommy Tuberville speaking to camera while driving with cut to photo of Jeff Sessions and graphic reading “Jeff Sessions – Can’t get it done.”

Tommy Tuberville: The career and establishment politicians, they have proven they can’t get it done.  Let’s quit sending them up there.

Video: Shots of Tuberville with high school football players, in car, and talking with voters Tommy Tuberville: I’m not a career politician.  I’m really a politician’s worst nightmare.  I want to help Donald Trump fight the swamp.

Tommy Tuberville: I’m Tommy Tuberville, and I approved this message.

Leftists Angry At Trump Donating Salary To Coronavirus Fight

By Steve Watson – 3/4/2020

“Hitler Never Took A Salary”

President Trump donated his fourth quarter salary to the Department of Health and Human Services this week in an effort to help fight the Coronavirus, but leftists are angry about it because…  Orange man bad.

The donation of $100,000 is part of Trump’s promise to never take any salary while he is President. He has previously given away his salary to the Surgeon General’s office, border enforcement, and Veterans’ Affairs, to name but a few.

CAP

The move was no where near good enough for leftists though, who immediately compared the move to Hitler (an obvious starting point):

CAP

This one was furious that the Orange man’s salary would only pay for 50 coronavirus tests:

CAP

Presumably she has donated more money?

This one called it a ‘drop in the bucket’ and got angry about Trump owning property:

CAP

In an important counterpoint, these leftists want to know how “we” get back money Trump has spent on golfing:

CAP

CAP

This one flat out denied that Trump is donating anything. The proof? The check is dated January 29th:

CAP

Who’d have thought Trump could do something before announcing it?

And this one repeated a fake narrative spread by Democrats that Trump defunded pandemic response:

James Comey Endorses and Votes for Joe Biden in Virginia

(INSET: Joe Biden) WASHINGTON, DC - DECEMBER 17: Former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey arrives at the Rayburn House Office Building before testifying to the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees on Capitol Hill December 17, 2018 in Washington, DC. House Republicans subpoenaed Comey to testify …

by Joshua Caplan – 3/3/2020

Fired FBI Director James Comey endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden and said he voted for him in Virginia’s Democratic presidential primary on Super Tuesday.

“Voted in first Dem primary to support party dedicated to restoring values in WH. I agree with @amyklobuchar: We need candidate who cares about all Americans and will restore decency, dignity to the office,” Comey wrote on Twitter. “There is a reason Trump fears @joebiden and roots for Bernie. #Biden2020.” 

CAP

Andrew Bates, the Biden campaign’s rapid response director, seemingly rejected Comey’s endorsement, tweeting: “Yes, customer service? I just received a package that I very much did not order. How can I return it, free of charge?”

Comey, who quit the Republican Party in 2018, donated $2,700 to Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s (D-MN) now-defunct campaign, while his wife made two contributions — $1,000 and $1,700 — to her last year. After dropping out of the Democrat presidential primary on Monday, Klobuchar endorsed Biden, saying the former vice president “can bring our country together and build that coalition of our fired-up Democratic base.”

In addition to Klobuchar, former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg threw his support behind Biden after dropping out of the race Sunday. Appearing together in Dallas, Buttigieg said Biden is the only candidate who can “bring back dignity to the White House.”

“When I ran for president we made it clear that the whole idea was about rallying the country together to defeat Donald Trump and to win the era for the values that we share,” the former mayor said. “And that was always a goal that was much bigger than me becoming president and it is in the name of that very same goal that I am delighted to endorse and support Joe Biden for President.”
Former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) also endorsed Biden on Monday.

“I, like a lot of people in Texas, really wanted to make sure I made a good decision. So I watched the debates, watched the town halls, listened to the candidates. And you know, by the end of last week, I knew that I wanted to vote for Biden. And it was a huge relief to finally figure out the candidate who I wanted to vote for,” O’Rourke said of his decision to back Biden.

“And then this weekend I was talking to my oldest son, Ulysses, and told him I was going to vote for Biden,” he added. “And he said, ‘Well, you should endorse him.’ And I said, ‘OK, that makes sense.’ He said, ‘If you want this guy to win, you should do everything you can to help him.’”

 

Joe Biden Promises Beto O’Rourke Will Be the One Who Leads on the “Gun Problem” – The Guy Who Wants to Take Your Guns (VIDEO)

 

Last night in Texas Senator Amy Klobuchar and former Rep. Bobby O’Rourke endorsed Joe Biden for president.

During his rally Joe Biden promised supporters that Bobby, fake Latino ‘Beto’, “will be the one who leads” on his gun control efforts.

It is widely known that Bobby O’Rourke wants the government to confiscate your guns.

Bobby knows about as much about guns as Joe knows what state he’s in.

Mississippi Man Charged with Insurance Fraud After Allegedly Defacing Cars with Racist, Pro-Trump Graffiti

This looks to be another left-wing hate hoax.

By Shane Trejo – 3/3/2020

A Mississippi man has been arrested on suspected insurance fraud after he reported racist graffiti on two of his cars back in February, in what very well may be another left-wing hate hoax.

Mississippi resident Trumaine Foster said that he woke up to find two of his cars defaced with various racial slurs next to the word “TRUMP” on Feb. 4. Police took him into custody for evidence tampering and insurance fraud after he painted over the vehicles, although they stopped short at explicitly blaming him for defacing his own cars in the first place.

The individuals in the community do not necessarily see Foster as some kind of victim. Shelby and Bradley Littleton, who are neighbors to Foster, claimed that the “hoax just kind of made us look silly” and “to make something up, that just does not make sense.”

Foster is now being held in the the DeSoto County Jail and is set to make a court appearance on Wednesday.

This may be the latest in a series of hate hoaxes that have happened across the country since the election of President Trump.

The most prominent hate hoax has come from Jussie Smollett, the third-rate actor who was caught poorly faking a hate crime in Chicago early last year:

Chicago actor Jussie Smollett was charged by a Cook County special prosecutor with six counts of disorderly conduct related to lying to the police on Tuesday. Dan Webb, a former U.S attorney appointed by Judge Michael Toomin, announced the charges as the result of a grand jury investigation.

Smollett had appeared to escape criminal repercussions for a hoax he orchestrated of January 2019, in which he paid two Nigerian brothers to play the role of Trump supporters and “attack” him in a fake racially charged event. Smollett was originally charged by prosecutors with filing a fake police report, but evaded punishment when a suspect district attorney ordered the charges dropped on the basis of Smollett’s supposed community service.

But he won’t use his ‘get out of jail free’ card after all. Webb was appointed by Judge Toomin six months ago to investigate the circumstances surrounding the suspicious dropping of Smollett’s charges. In a statement, the special prosecutor explained his decision to file new criminal charges against Smollett for his orchestration of the hoax.

“The grand jury’s investigation revealed that Jussie Smollett planned and participated in a staged hate crime attack, and thereafter made numerous false statements to Chicago Police Department officers on multiple occasions, reporting a heinous hate crime that he, in fact, knew had not occurred.”

The hate hoax epidemic is continuing throughout the country, enabled by a Democrat Party and fake news media that is always happy to amplify dubious stories.

 

Buttigieg set to endorse Biden

BY JULIA MANCHESTER AND AMIE PARNES – 

Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg is set to endorse former Vice President Joe Biden in the Democratic presidential race one day after ending his own bid, according to a source close to the Biden campaign. 

Buttigieg’s planned endorsement comes as fellow moderate Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) also throws her support behind Biden after dropping out of the race Monday.

The latest endorsements for Biden point to a consolidation of the moderate lane of the Democratic race in an effort to block progressive Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) from getting the nomination.

Biden’s campaign got a new push after Saturday’s South Carolina primary, where the former vice president won every county in the state.

PANIC BUYING HITS GERMAN STORES AS CORONAVIRUS CASES DOUBLE

Panic Buying Hits German Stores as Coronavirus Cases Double

Grocery chains report rising demand for canned goods, other long-term provisions

Deutsche Welle – MARCH 2, 2020

Germans are slowly coming to realize that they, just like 50 other nations in the world today, could soon be facing a coronavirus epidemic.

Indeed, the pathogen has become a major topic of discussion in the country – so much so, in fact, that some residents are now stockpiling food out of fear they could be placed under quarantine.

Bulk-buying supplies

On Friday, a spokeswoman for one of the country’s largest supermarket groups, REWE, told DW that while they didn’t register any panic at the start of the week, the situation quickly changed.

“We have noticed rising foodstuff and canned goods purchases across the entire country to which we are adapting accordingly,” said Kristina Schütz from REWE Group, which is headquartered in Cologne and runs the Penny, REWE and Nahkauf grocery chains.

Discount chain Lidl has recorded a similar spike in purchases, with a spokesperson confirming that “we are noticing a rise in sales in certain regions and stores.”

According to the chains, Germans are stockpiling long-lasting and canned food, pasta as well as toilet paper and disinfectants.

CAP

What do authorities recommend?

Four years ago, the Bonn-based Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (BBK) published a checklist of long-lasting foods it recommends stockpiling for emergencies.

The BBK, which is staffed by some 300 civil servants, educates the general population on how to prepare for crises. It advises Germans to stockpile food and drink for about ten days.

Specifically, the checklist states that one person needs 14 liters of liquid a week, and recommends stocking mineral water and fruit juice in particular. Even so, the BBK warns against panic buying, advising Germans to stockpile only foods and drinks “that you and your family would consume anyway.”

The BKK also suggests stocking food that keeps for a long time without needing refrigeration, to pay attention to sell-by dates, and mark when items were purchased, in case they don’t have dates printed on them. It also advises Germans to “store newly bought food items at the back of the cupboard so that you consume older items first.”

Sound advice

This comprehensive emergency checklist hasn’t gone unnoticed abroad. Bulgarian daily 24 Tschassa, for example, praised the advice provided by German authorities, saying that in most cases “consumers just hoard all kinds of products – without a proper idea how long they will come in useful or whether they might need them at all.”

The paper said sticking to the German checklist is a good idea “as it makes no sense to buy excessive amounts of supplies.”

Warning against stoking fear

While many pundits in Germany agree the list is useful, they simultaneously warn against stirring hysteria. So far, Germany has confirmed 129 cases of coronavirus, with 16 having already recovered, and no deaths reported. More than half of the cases are in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the country’s most populous state.

The German Journalists Association (DJV) therefore emphasizes that media outlets should avoid stoking fear.

Accordingly, DJV head Frank Überall stated that “people need clear information as well as advice” to make sense of the situation.

He has called on journalists to heed the German press code which calls on them to “avoid an inappropriately sensationalist tone when reporting on medical issues, as this may give rise to unfounded fears or hopes.”

The press code also states that “stoking fear and hysteria is incompatible with responsible journalism.”
