Wait, who is influencing foreign elections?

The Democrat party, President Obama and leftist media (afraid the party is over and they may have to return to real journalism instead of crony-stenography) have been trumpeting that the Russians hacked DNC emails and influenced the election towards Trump.

No evidence has been provided for this claim, leading one to suspect its merely a tactic to disenfranchise the incoming president, and add gravitas to the shadow government it looks a lot like Obama is setting up in his new office building in DC.

But what about Obama’s attempts, successful and not, to subvert democracy in other countries?

Starting locally at the Globe & Mail:

Justin Trudeau’s Liberals have quietly been getting regular advice from Jennifer O’Malley Dillon, Barack Obama’s deputy campaign manager in the last U.S. presidential campaign.

Somewhat more openly, Tom Mulcair’s New Democrats have been receiving guidance from Jeremy Bird, who was Mr. Obama’s national field director.

Thinking globally:

Obama admin. sent taxpayer money to campaign to oust Netanyahu.

The State Department paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers grants to an Israeli group that used the money to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last year’s Israeli parliamentary elections, a congressional investigation concluded Tuesday.

Some $350,000 was sent to OneVoice, ostensibly to support the group’s efforts to back Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement negotiations. But OneVoice used the money to build a voter database, train activists and hire a political consulting firm with ties to President Obama’s campaign — all of which set the stage for an anti-Netanyahu campaign, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations said in a bipartisan staff report.

Then of course, there is Honduras where the Obama administration seems to have played a very dodgy role in a coup against an elected non-leftist and the reinstallation of a leftist leader.

Hillary Clinton’s dodgy answers on Honduras coup.

Clinton had no problem with the forced removal of a democratically elected leader of a country; she only took issue with the fact that things got a little messier than she would have liked. In her glib response, Clinton never elaborates on what the “strong arguments” were that justified the United States not calling the ouster a coup, despite the fact that various governments around the world, as well as the United Nations, condemned Zelaya’s ouster as a coup and called for his restoration as president. Dana Frank, a professor of history and expert on U.S. relations with Honduras called it “chilling that a leading presidential candidate would say this was not a coup . . .  .  She’s baldly lying when she says [the United States] never called it a coup.” Indeed,  President Obama himself said soon after, “We believe the coup was not legal, and that President Zelaya remains the president of Honduras, the democratically elected leader of the country.” By November 2009, the United States had backtracked on its position and focused on pushing for elections, but the claim that it didn’t call it a coup is simply not true.


Obama is On the Wrong Side of Honduras Coup.

Obama is  touting the illegality of the apparent coup in Honduras as if it’s evil incarnate, but he doesn’t seem to be talking any further into why this coup happened. There must be something else at work here because his (along with other world leaders) judgment seems quite  illogical based on the actual facts of the case:

Not only is there no evidence that the Russians did hack the DNC and use that information to PET’s advantage, (I am certain that the Russians did hack Hillary’s private server as did anyone else who wanted to as there was no security on it) but there is plenty of evidence that they did not leak that information or use it for Trump’s advantage.

Lets begin with the founder of anti-virus firm, John McAfee of McAfee anti-virus.

“If it looks like the Russians did it, then I can guarantee you it was not the Russians”

The article is worth the read. But you get the gist of it in one line.

Then there is the excellent interview with Julian Assange, owner, founder and operator of Wikileaks which is at the centre of all of this commotion, who quite clearly states that none of his information comes from hacks, all of it is leaks and none if it is from the Russians.

White House fails to make case that Russian hackers tampered with election.

Sadly, the JAR, as the Joint Analysis Report is called, does little to end the debate. Instead of providing smoking guns that the Russian government was behind specific hacks, it largely restates previous private-sector claims without providing any support for their validity. Even worse, it provides an effective bait and switch by promising newly declassified intelligence into Russian hackers’ “tradecraft and techniques” and instead delivering generic methods carried out by just about all state-sponsored hacking groups.

We can use our own reasoning of course  as well. If I were Putin, I would just as likely prefer to have a corrupt, dishonest megalomaniac in charge of the USA on whom I have enough information to cause an internal coup-d’etat anytime I felt it would be a good way to motive her policies my way.

We can also use CNN coverage of the non-event, which changes depending on the message the Democrats want out.

It also shouldn’t be needed to point out, that shooting the messenger is the worst form of reasoning. Even the DNC, the president and Clinton herself is not denying the validity of the information.

In the Hannity/Assange interview above, Julian explains that they did also release several pages of leaked information about Trump but it was trivial by comparison. That, is the real issue. Not how the information got into the hands of the American public.

So it appears that it is the Obama admin who is guilty of using either illegal or just unethical means, as in Canada, to subvert democracy in other countries

Thank you Tundra Tabloids (great looking new interface by the way) and ML. for your links on this one.

Eeyore for VladTepesBlog, and a very happy New Year to all our readers, friends, and opponents. May we see a year of peace, prosperity, security and wellness for all people.

A commenter just sent in this observation:
Wasn’t the US administration backing the muslim brotherhood in ousting president Mubarak
of Egypt. Weren’t they also promoting and supporting anti Brexit faction in the run up to the
British referendum. Talk about interfering in other countries business.
Too true on both counts. And in fact when the people of Egypt had the largest people’s revolution in the history of the world, both in absolute numbers and in percentage of the population involved to oust Mohammad Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood and put Al Sisi in, Obama did everything he could to oppose it in favour of the tyrannical Morsi.

  1. It is so nice when the experts agree with you, way back well before the election I said that it wasn’t the Russians because they were good enough not to leave tracks pointing back to them.

    Rather then focusing on who hacked Hillary and the DNC (who apprently have weaker security then I do) lets take on an easier job, lets find out who didn’t hack her.

  3. About Obama and his Shadow Government: I agree with the analysis.

    The only reason he will be staying in D.C. is vengeance against Trump.
    The immature and vindictive Obama will not take lightly to the eradication of his legacy, regardless of how bad it actually is.

    And we can all count on MSM of which NBC and mostly CNN to push the coup.
    Obama is a dangerous man because he has more love for himself than for his country. He is blinded by his vanity.

    • The immature and vindictive Obama will not take lightly to the eradication of his legacy, regardless of how bad it actually is.

      Please forgive me but this is slightly redundant (through no fault of your own).

      If anything, 0bama’s immaturity (Community Organizer = Presidential material? … Puhleeese!!!) is the veritable wellspring of his spiteful lack of character.

      Both his ego and “legacy” (yes, those are sneer quotes) are so fragile to where a wall-eyed, spavined, broke back mule could occupy the Oval Office and still pose a certifiable threat to 0bama’s supposed “legacy” [puke]!

      Any “eradication” involved wouldn’t even use up the smallest sized aerosol can of “Raid”.

      However, there is no “shadow government” on the horizon. At the very least, America’s military would not tolerate such unmitigated nonsense for a millisecond. Few “lifers” in the Pentagon will soon forget 0bama’s abject betrayal of this nation’s armed forces.

      • Both of you need to remember that his Grandparents who raised him were literally card carrying communists who hated the US. He was raised to hate the US and to work to destroy it, he is going to continue in his life’s quest no matter what. Think of him as the American version of the German politician who used his murdered daughters funeral to raise money for the refugees.

  4. Barry O’fraud is going to lose all of his presidential protections.
    He is messing with the wrong guy in Donald Trump.
    Barry has a life time of phony paperwork to explain
    including the in your face, forged birth cert on Whitehouse.gov.

    • Sheriff Arpaio says that his Cold Case Posse has the evidence that the birth certificate is forged and can name the forger.. We shall have to wait and see what the new Attorney General will do about this issue.

      This is one of the reasons that the Dems are working so hard to stop PETs pick from getting confirmed. But thanks to the Dems it only takes 51 votes to call a vote and 51 votes to confirm a nomination.

      • Sheriff Arpaio says that his Cold Case Posse has the evidence that the birth certificate is forged and can name the forger.

        All of which should leave 0bama open to charges of committing premeditated Class A Felony Fraud punishable by life in prison without possibility of parole.

        Now that’s an 0bama “legacy” I could live with!
