Iowahawk Dismantles "Election" Hacking

NPR learns not to mess with the man.

According to Fake News, It's the Russians

The issue about all this hacking fake news is that the "hacking" would not have mattered if the emails had not been incriminating.  Possibly the worst of it, from Clinton's perspective, was how the DNC colluded with her team to steal the nomination from Sanders.

In other words, it was the corruption rather than the exposure of the corruption that turned off Clinton voters.

The truth is hacking, as in someone managing to break through security, rarely happens.  I would guess that 75% of the time, if not more, the data is downloaded and stolen by an insider then passed to someone else for leaking, fraud activity, or whatever.  This is especially likely in a case like the federal government leak of employee identity information.  No one hacked in; somebody was paid off.

Despite what the "experts" showing up on the fake news channels say, I would guess this also was the case with the DNC leak.  The culprit or culprits were probably Sanders supporters among the younger IT people who saw what was going on and decided to take action.

Remember that 27-year-old DNC staffer that worked on the voter database and was murdered last summer?  Somebody like that.

But, of course, it must have happened because the CIA says it happened.  And we can absolutely trust their highly trained, loyal, and patriotic analysts.

I remember the good old days of freakdom when it was common for leftist hippies to accuse the CIA of carrying out the Kennedy assassination.  Or to quote Mr. Rate from the movie Shooter:  They also said that artificial sweeteners were safe, WMDs were in Iraq and Anna Nicole married for love.

Recall, too, that the report about the Russian hacking said that both the DNC and the RNC had been hacked -- except the FBI checked the RNC's computers and found no evidence of hacking.  Am I being too paranoid if I wonder, since they were wrong or lying about the RNC part of the report, what else might be false?

There is a lot of power to be had in Washington, D.C., and the FBI and the CIA are, in one sense, typical government bureaucracies that work to keep their funding and their influence with Congress and other players while expanding their kingdoms.  They do favors for those who promise to help them achieve their goals.  Government is always a form of controlled and legalized corruption;  the bigger is it, the more corrupt and the less legal.

Boom and What Comes After

A lot of people are excited about the current stock market run.  It's pushing toward 20,000 on the Dow.

I can't get over the nagging feeling that it is a really big bubble about to burst.  I don't think the economy has been doing that well.  We have far fewer people in the work force than the manipulated unemployment numbers indicate.  We are operating with very low interest rates and have been now for years.  We have never really come out of the recession and most of the job growth has been in government -- which produces nothing and is mostly parasitic.  In order to continue funding the cancerous growth in government, we have doubled our massive debt load in the last eight years.

I'd like to be more positive, but the situation does not appear to me to bode all that well.

I think the Fed will raise rates -- because they have to.  I think the markets will crash.  I think the media will immediately lay it all on Trump.  We'll start seeing more realistic statistics about the state of employment and economic growth than what we have been fed by the ministry of information news media for the last eight years.

It is possible that Trump will be able to cut actual government expenditures.  That might be sufficient to stimulate genuine economic growth.  I would say no tax cuts without spending cuts that more than offset the loss in revenue.  We need to end deficit spending and bring the debt back under control.  My hopes for this happening are not high.

My plan? I will offer a few out-the-wall ideas.  Frankly, I would start with military cutbacks.

  • End our interventionist foreign policy.  That means the American military and the American taxpayers will no longer pay in blood or dollars for the privilege of being the globalists' police force and bully boy.  That saves us billions and appeases a boatload of whiners.  
  • Get rid of the TSA.  Or just move them to the borders.  Turn security and screening over to the airlines.  If anyone claims they are being profiled or discriminated against because they are Muslim, gay, fat, or whatever, remind them that the airlines are private entities and reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason.  Make air travel great again.  
  • As noted yesterday, a moratorium on immigration of all kinds from all countries.  No more refugee resettlements.  Enforce the borders.  
  • Punish employers who hire illegals.  Remove all government aid and services for illegals.  We won't have to worry about deporting them.  They will do it themselves.
  • End the war on drugs.  Period.  No more DEA.  No more ATF.  Let the states use the money for drug and alcohol treatment and rehab.
  • End federal involvement in education.  Not just with Common Core and the Department of Education, but with federal court decisions that, now, decades after Brown vs. Board of Education, still control "equitable funding" issues in many southern states.  Last I checked -- it's been a few years -- the Kansas City schools in Missouri were still funded by state revenues under court order.
  • I know most none of this isn't is going to happen, so I will throw in a real fantasy: do away with Medicare and Medicaid. Allow more competition in health insurance and health care.

Medical Tests are Racist and Xenophobic

All the poor, little refugees aren't so little:

The Danish government has revealed that of the suspected 800 “underage” asylum seekers they believed to be lying about their age, 600 of them were adults according to medical tests.

Give Denmark credit for at least trying to keep their citizens from being forced to pay extra benefits for underaged children.  Of course, the simpler and better way is to refuse entry to all these invaders.

Some make the excuse, as noted in the article, that the invaders come from countries that do not have good recordkeeping.  I understand because I was born at home and did not get a birth certificate until I was sixteen and needed it to obtain a driver's license.  There was never, however, a question about how old I was, what year or even what day I was born.  We were not highly educated, but we had a calendar.  

As we have noted before, relatively few of the refugees pouring into Europe are families, or women and children.  They are primarily young men of military age who are swarming over the borders to be supported by the people they intend to conquer and annihilate.

Pointing out this simple and obvious truth is a good way to be labeled "literally Hitler", yet more and more Europeans and even an increasing number of Americans are willing to risk being called bad names and ostracized by the elites and their propagandists.

Most countries have enough people.  It is time for a moratorium on immigration until we sort out the kinds of nations we wish to live in.
