McConnell Not Budging: No Select Committee For Russian HackingDespite a bipartisan call in the Senate for a select committee to investigate the possibility of Russian cyber-attacks meddling in the U.S. election, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is holding firm in his belief that the Intelligence Committee is sufficient in looking into the matter.

"We have a Senate Intelligence Committee and a House Intelligence Committee, run by knowledgeable, responsible people," McConnell said in a sit-down interview with Kentucky Educational Television. "There's no question that the Russians were messing around in our election. It is a matter of genuine concern and it needs to be investigated."

"In the Senate, we're gonna investigate that in what we call regular order," he stated. Regular order meaning that the committees already available are enough to investigate Russian hacking – no need for a special committee.

McConnell said the Senate Intelligence Committee is “fully capable of handling this.”

Incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, along with Republicans John McCain and Lindsey Graham, have called for special committee to investigate cyber-attacks and election meddling by the Russian government. The senator from Kentucky believes foul play is at hand, but he is a strong believer in Senate tradition. It’s no real surprise he’s against the proposal.

The Kentucky senator is reluctant in believing the Russians were attempting to influence the election. He pointed to strong cabinet picks by the president-elect.

"If they were trying to elect Donald Trump, my guess is they made a bad investment because look at who he is picking for his Cabinet," McConnell stated, arguing that Gen. James Mattis for secretary of defense and Rep. Mike Pompeo to head the CIA are going to be major headaches for Putin and the Kremlin.

After murder of ambassador, Putin vows to obliterate the Islamic State

Putin said: This murder is clearly a provocation aimed at undermining the improvement and normalisation of Russian-Turkish relations as well as undermining the peace process in Syria promoted by Russia, Turkey, Iran and other countries interested in solving this conflict in Syria. Last month, Donald Trump and Putin held talks on the phone and indicated […]

Leaks are Not Hacks and the Right Man for the Job
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio bit.ly/2cpXuRd

“It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things.”  
- Former British Ambassador Craig Murray on why Russia played no part in the presidential election 

It’s over...the recount backfired actually garnering Trump even more votes...WikiLeaks exposed truths the media was ordered not to tell...and while James Comey’s letter had Hillary seething and reaching for a drink or a pill whatever the case may be at any given time...the fact is the sun still comes up in the east, climate change is still the weather, and the Russians did not do it...period.

Hillary lost and when you subtract the dead vote, the ‘illegals’ vote, and the thousands of votes in cities where more votes were cast than were people registered to vote, the reality becomes that she lost the popular vote too. So, Hillary needs to move on and get a life away from the political arena as she, her minions, her hanger-ons, and her whiny bubbles, coloring book, and therapy puppy crowd...aka known as ‘snowflakes’...are truly becoming quite the bore.

Now as for her loss...her Electoral College shellacking actually...Hillary lost simply because she was the wrong candidate for the job to which ‘We the People’ thankfully spoke our opposition to loud and clear. And not only was Hillary the wrong candidate but she and her people ran a terrible campaign, there was no real platform to speak of, and Hillary surrounded herself with people of dubious character at best. But the fact is that when the person running is of dubious character themselves those who orbit around said person most likely will be of the same dubious sort, and in Hillary’s case dubious was brought to a level of the nth degree...dubious as in John Podesta, Huma Abedin, Donna Brazile, Elizabeth Warren, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and of course Billy-Boy himself...to name but a few.

And as expected, immediately upon her loss Hillary and crew started flooding the media with excuse after excuse as to why she lost, but nary a word about accepting personal responsibility was amongst that flood of words. Running the gamut from the sublime to the absurd to the out-and-out ridiculous, Hillary and those in her orbit have now decided to blame Vladimir Putin and ‘supposed’ Russian interference with the election as the cause of her losing to Donald Trump. And this is not just to ‘save face’ if you will, but so her loss could help lay the foundation for the mother of all media perpetrated hoaxes...as in the excuse de jour known as ‘Fake News’... news as in anything the left fears or disagrees with...news now being determined to be truth by the left alone...news censored for our own good the left claims.

So while the Russian connection is starting to fall apart one piece at a time...after all the fact is that if definitive evidence of Russian interference...hacking the left calls it...cannot be shown it is because no such hacking occurred. And if by some chance it did occur but the CIA will not release said evidence then a serious breach of our intel has put our national security at risk and I would think our national security would ‘trump’ even Trump...and blame for the breach would then rightfully be placed on Obama as the CIA comes under his jurisdiction. 

But to date no such definitive evidence or proof exists and that includes the words stated by, as is usually the case with the left, ‘unnamed’ and ‘unsubstantiated’ sources who “now believe with ‘a high level of confidence’ that Russian President Vladimir Putin became personally involved in the covert Russian campaign to interfere in the U.S. presidential election.”

But if names are not revealed and if those saying the words do not come forward it’s because their words are nothing but lies.

So while the media is still trying to get us to believe that Vladimir Putin personally orchestrated how ‘supposedly’ hacked material from the DNC was deliberately leaked to use against Hillary, NBC News is claiming that the intelligence came from diplomatic sources and spies working for U.S. allies, but they too are refusing to name names. And again why no names...because I and many others believe this nonsense has nothing to do with Putin or Russia but has everything to do with it originating directly from either 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, an estate in Chappaqua, New York, or from within the DNC itself.

And as the left’s ‘blame Russia’ game starts to fall apart, even the afore mentioned ‘dubious’ Attorney General Loretta Lynch admitted last Thursday at a Politico event that there was no...I repeat no...evidence whatsoever that the Russians or anyone else compromised or affected the U.S. electoral systems or the recent presidential election.

“Fortunately we didn’t see the sort of technical interference that I know people had concerns about, also, in terms of voting machines and the like,” Lynch said and this seems to give undeniable credence to what Britain’s Express newspaper reported. Saying that a Democratic National Committee (DNC) insider was responsible for the leaks, the paper quoted the words of an ally and friend of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange...the earlier mentioned former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan, Craig Murray, who said he personally met with the person who handed over the emails from the DNC. 

“The hack of the Democratic Party in the run up to the U.S. elections was not Russian but instead an ‘inside job,” Murray said, and that “the emails were released by Mr. Assange’s site and caused damage to Hillary Clinton’s reputation with a number of shock revelations among tens of thousands of emails.”

Adding that ”a little simple logic demolishes the CIA’s claims....it should be said again and again, that if Hillary Clinton had not connived with the DNC to fix the primary schedule to disadvantage Bernie, if she had not received advance notice of live debate questions to use against Bernie, if she had not accepted massive donations to the Clinton foundation and family members in return for foreign policy influence, if she had not failed to distance herself from some very weird and troubling people, then none of this would have happened.”

And in an interview with Sean Hannity again just this past Thursday, Julian Assange himself stated in no uncertain terms that Russia did not provide any hacked documents to Wikileaks...which directly contradicts intelligence reports from (of course) unknown and unnamed officials within the CIA.

“Our source is not the Russian government,” Assange unequivocally stated to which Hannity asked, “In other words, let me be clear...Russia did not give you the Podesta documents, or anything from the DNC?”

“That’s correct,” was Assange’s reply.

And now the worm is starting to turn as James Clapper, the soon to be gone Director of National Intelligence (the department that oversees all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies) has sided with the FBI which has publicly stated that it “could not back the CIA’s conclusion that Russians...that Putin...hacked the accounts of the DNC and its leaders because its standards for evidence were not satisfied by the CIA’s assumptions and conclusions,” thus leading the CIA to back down a bit in its accusations. 

Now saying that they are not alleging that Trump or his campaign colluded with the alleged Russian plot or that Russia in any way impacted vote counting on Election Day, one has to wonder exactly why all the brouhaha over something that obviously never happened. 

The answer to that is two-fold as in the Electoral College and Trump’s Secretary of State pick, ExxonMobil’s CEO Rex Tillerson.

The Electoral College reason is obvious...as in a last ditch (thankfully failed) attempt by Hillary to overthrow the will of ‘We the People.’ Remember, the Constitution is clear as to how our president is chosen, and it’s rightfully and wisely not by popular vote but by each state being equal as per designated electors. To see in detail how the Electoral College works, please see my article, Making Us a ‘More Perfect Union’ Via the Electoral College and Respecting Our Flag at: http://thepatriotfactor.blogspot.com/2016/12/op-ed-making-us-more-perfect-union.html

So that leaves Hillary with but one last desperate attempt to try and negate the credibility of Trump’s presidency and that is by her and her minions trying to stop Trump’s cabinet picks from securing their nominations...and it is a cabinet full of excellent choices I might add. Now being jam-packed with true conservatives and generals...generals who know that islam is the enemy and who will act accordingly...has left those in Hillary’s camp, after exhausting all other options, to zero in on Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson because they claim he is a bit too cozy with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin instead of seeing Tillerson's relationship with Putin as a strong starting point for securing better relations with Russia.

Claiming that Rex Tillerson holds a world view “centered on the world’s provable and exploitable fossil-fuel resources” (translation: money and personal profit alone as the bottom line), coupled with the fact that in 2011 he secured a major deal with the Russian oil company Rosneft, and that he is a climate change denier...wisely knowing it is the weather and nothing more...Tillerson had ExxonMobil leading a public campaign (rightfully) denying a human role in 'so-called' climate change. And to add to Hillary's and the left’s sensibility meltdown is their claim that Tillerson has no foreign policy experience and would have to learn too much in a short period of time to be effective on the world stage. 

“The next secretary of state must be someone who views the world with moral clarity, is free of potential conflicts of interest, and has a clear sense of America’s interests.”  
- Florida Senator Marco Rubio on why he has vowed to ensure a thorough vetting of the nominee by the Foreign Relations Committee 

Sadly, even a few Republicans, like the above mentioned Senator Rubio, have some concerns about Rex Tillerson, but those concerns are really a plus in his favor as well as showing what a wise pick Trump made in nominating Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State.

Let’s start with the understanding that after both Hillary and John ‘Swiftboat’ Kerry’s failed tenure as Secretary of State, the fact is that the Department of State needs not only major internal reform but a complete ‘housecleaning’ if you will. And what better person to do that than a man who headed one of the world’s largest profitable companies...a man whose experience can aid in ridding the department of both unnecessary and unneeded bureaucracy thus allowing designated monies to be used more cost effectively as well as more wisely. 

Also not taken into account by the naysayers is that as CEO of a major company Tillerson knows well how to negotiate and do so with the world’s major leaders and assorted high stakes players. A successful company CEO simply must have these skills to be successful and increase their company’s bottom line, and when one plays in the oil game...when one is playing against the very folks who not only want to kill us all but who want to keep us dependent on them for our oil needs as they strive to do so...the Tillerson nomination starts to make sense.

And it makes sense both domestically and on the world stage as Tillerson’s decade+ experience as CEO of ExxonMobil has given him a unique perspective and understanding of both global affairs and actions needed especially concerning Russia...a country not really our adversary as Russia...as Putin...can be a valuable ally in the ‘War on Terror’ with the right president and secretary of state at the helm of America’s ship. 

Domestically, as ExxonMobil’s CEO, Rex Tillerson has had to deal with a sometimes very unfriendly Congress, the always unfriendly Obama White House, and with, thanks to Obama, an out of control U.S. regulatory system that would have stonewalled a lesser player. And as for Russia, remember, Vladimir Putin is as disgusted with islam and the muslim nonsense as ‘We the People’ are making Tillerson’s Russian ties and long held friendship with Putin quite the plus that can most assuredly be used to help forge a U.S./Russian alliance to help rid the civilized world of ISIS, al-Qaeda, and assorted other nasties...with some of those nasties actually being aided by America’s current President Barack HUSSEIN Obama...or should I say America’s traitor-in-chief.

And the bottom line is that Rex Tillerson’s focused business experience coupled with his understanding of how the economy, of how business, and of how our government both works and doesn’t work, helps to strengthen his upcoming role as America’s chief diplomat. And when you add that to Donald Trump’s soon-to-be strong leadership...as opposed to Obama’s leading from behind’ (if what you call his traitorous actions ‘leading’)...you have created a team that will strive to not only ‘Make America Great Again’ both in regards to what’s called 'geopolitics and geoeconomics' but will do so while keeping America and her interest first and foremost.

And won’t that be a welcome change from the stabbing in the back America has received during these past eight years of Obama’s presidency...something to think about...a welcome change that is now destined to happen beginning on January 20, 2017...which by the way cannot come soon enough.
