Dear KAG: 20201001 Open Thread

It’s been a hectic few days. Shall we relax a little?

[14 seconds into the video] Enough of that.

Okay, here we are. RED OCTOBER.

Yes, patience is wearing more thin than usual. However, for many Americans, the strategy to wake the people slowly and methodically is working. It may not always seem that way, but it is.

In the meantime, we just keep plugging away.

For Pat:

_______________________________________________

As usual, this is the daily thread, the place to put all information that needs to be out there – Q drops, Q drop decodes, riot information, rumors about MAGA rallies starting up again, news flashes, Chy-na flu updates, fashionable mask photos, satire, memes, and of course cute animal videos.

In the meantime, the short and sweet version of “THE RULES” is here borrowed from Tuesday:

Guidelines for posting and discussion on this site were outlined by our host, WolfM00n. Please, review them from time to time.

The discourse on this site is to be CIVIL – no name calling, baiting, or threatening others here is allowed. Those who are so inclined may visit Wolf’s other sanctuary, the U-Tree, to slog it out.

This site is a celebration of the natural rights endowed to humans by our Creator as well as those enshrined in the Bill of Rights adopted in the founding documents of the United States of America. Within the limits of law, how we exercise these rights is part of the freedom of our discussion.

Fellow tree dweller Wheatie gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.

Since it is almost the weekend, the reminders are in place to not swing from the chandeliers, wash your hands and face, and be nice to the liberals whether they deserve it or not. Making your bed, OTOH, is optional.

LUKE 10:1-12

1After this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to come. 2And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. 3Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. 4Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and salute no one on the road. 5Whatever house you enter, first say, `Peace be to this house!’ 6And if a son of peace is there, your peace shall rest upon him; but if not, it shall return to you. 7And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages; do not go from house to house. 8Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you; 9heal the sick in it and say to them, `The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ 10But whenever you enter a town and they do not receive you, go into its streets and say, 11`Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet, we wipe off against you; nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near.’ 12I tell you, it shall be more tolerable on that day for Sodom than for that town.

  2. Earlier, I posted about AIVD (Dutch Intelligence) having a front row seat to Russian hacking for 2.5 years starting in Summer 2014.

    They were able to observe the Russians hacking in real time. They tipped of US intel to a hack of unclassified State Department systems, as it was happening in 2014, and White House systems shortly after.

    They did it by hacking into the computer network of the Russians located in a university building near Red Square. AIVD even hacked into the security camera outside the computer lab and watched all who entered the lab.

    They were in Russian Cozy Bear systems watching the hackers hack for 2.5 years. They watched the Russians (Cozy Bear) hack the DNC in 2015. They were in russian Cozy Bear systems past the election.

    The DNC 2016 attack was hacked by Fancy Bear, another Russian group, according to Crowdstrike. If AIVD witnessed the 2016 DNC hack, as reported in many accounts, they would have needed to hack into Fancy Bear systems too. Did they?
    If so, the Dutch know with certainty, who hacked the DNC in 2016. Why would the FBI need Crowd strike? The FBI tipped of the DNC to the hack in 2015, and had an open investigation.

    Here’s a couple links:

    Here’s a link to the NSA DD talking about the State Dept. attack in vague terms at the Aspen Institute in March 2017, one day after Comey and Adm. Rogers testified before Congress. John Carlin is the moderator of this seminar! This is the forum referred to in the ArsTechnica report.

        1. Scoff met with Jonathan Winer, IIR. At a conference like this. Not sure that it’s this one. It may have been at the McCain Institute, and wasn’t Glenn Simpson there too?

          It’s important to understand that there are two distinctly different compromises of the DNC network. One was in 2015, by Russians Cozy Bear, witnessed by the Dutch from within Cozy Bear’s network. The other is reported by Crowd strike as Fancy Bear and attributed to the Russians. According to the Tamene (DNC IT guy) transcript, DNC was notified of an intrusion into their system that they weren’t aware of, and couldn’t find evidence of, when they checked. DNC couldn’t find any of the FBI flagged problems. “Coincidentally”, problems began to surface when Crowdstrike was brought on board, in April 2016. Crowd strike was brought in when the FBI requested email logs, and DNC consulted their lawyers.

          The two hack situation allows the FBI and the IC to difinitively say that the Russians hacked the DNC, because they did in 2015. The 2016 “hack” can ride on the coat tails of the Dutch evidence and the Dutch never confirmed or denied. All press reports of the Dutch observing e filtration of data in 2016 are based on anonymous sources, not Dutch intel. Leaks to the press killed the secrecy of the Dutch infiltration of Russian Intelligence, I suspect.

        2. The disinformation bit makes my brain hurt, but if Dutch Intel infiltrated system of Russian intel hackers and we’re watching in real time, they potentially had access to russian analysis of the information the Russians were hacking. Since Tamene testifies that they couldn’t find evidence of the Russians in their system before April 2016, it’s quite possible that the Russians were reading data only, not writing, copying, etc, and capturing information thru analysis.
          Might be problematic for the Dutch to provide the FBI with original DNC documents, but captured Russian analysis would be fair game. Also, let’s not forget the US- Russia MLAT. Would be quite ironic if this cabal is rolled up under the agreement signed by Strobe Talbott himself.

      3. They were, in 2015. As were the State Dept and WH. The Dutch were observing from within the Russian Cozy Bear network. They notified US intel, and the FBI began an investigation in 2015. The FBI informed the DNC that their network was compromised in 2015. (See Tamene testimony)

        I don’t believe the reports that Dutch intel watched exfiltration of data by “Fancy Bear” in 2016. They would have needed to hack into an entirely different Russian network. The Dutch watched Cozy Bear from within Cozy Bears network for 2.5 years. Dutch weren’t happy that their “methods” were being discussed in the US press.

      __________

      To cover for them.

      Mary…CrowdStrike was Eric Schmidt’s hand-picked team of dark web hackers, masquerading as a ‘cyber security’ company.

      Do a little digging on CS, and it will become more clear.
      Do an image search on CS, using DuckDuckGo — CS loved to create slick graphics and symbols.

      After Q came along and started dropping breadcrumbs…Schmidt was one of those big-name CEO’s who mysteriously resigned.

      After Schmidt resigned from Goog, he took CS public and sold stock in an attempt to white-wash it and make it appear to be a ‘normal’ cyber security company.

Read a court filing today that lays out their case. Interesting. Perkins Coie, Elias, Sussman, Baker, Simpson, Fusion, L. Jean Camp, Our, Tea Leaves…all names mentioned in the filing.

        Of note, L. Jean Camp was affiliated with the Harvard Kennedy School Belfer Center, in the same years that Fiona Hill, was also affiliated.

    2. IMO, Proud Boys aren’t about White Supremacy so yes. Meanwhile they aren’t going to say Black Lives Matter. but they aren’t being asked to. They would say Black Lives Matter Too as that’s another way of saying All Lives Matter. Meanwhile too there are elements of BLM that aren’t run by Soros minions and frankly they are just confused and likely waking up the fact they have been used and might wish to find a way to disassociate from the bad press they are getting from conservative media. If that’s the case they should splinter from the main group and form BLM2 (Black Lives Matter Too), something much more palatable and then join the Trump Train while disavowing the violence.

        These naturally-occurring, whole food-derived substances with proven coronavirus-inhibiting properties are discussed below:

        Licorice root. Glycyrrhizin, an active constituent of licorice roots, has been shown to exhibit potent inhibitory activity against SARS-coronavirus replication (3). Additionally, glycyrrhizin appears to be more effective during the early stages of coronavirus replication (3).

        • Flavonoids. The activity of coronavirus proteases is a key factor in coronaviruses’ ability to propagate in cells. Flavonoids, however, directly inhibit coronavirus protease activity, resulting in decreased virus propagation (4). The flavonoids with the highest virus inhibitory power appear to be herbacetin, isobavachalcone, quercetin 3‐β‐d‐glucoside, and helichrysetin.

        • Chameleon plant (Houttuynia cordata). In one animal study, Chameleon plant aqueous extract demonstrated significant antiviral activity against the SARS-coronavirus in vivo (5). The study also found that the herb stimulated the proliferation of mouse splenic lymphocytes in a dose-dependent manner, suggesting it also functions as an immunomodulatory plant (5).

        • Chinese medicine preparations. Chinese medicine has been frequently used as an adjunct therapy to treat SARS patients, as evidenced by a Cochrane systematic review that concluded Chinese Medicine as an adjunct therapy “may improve symptoms, quality of life and absorption of pulmonary infiltration, and decrease the corticosteroid dosage for SARS patients” (6). Another study has also proposed ShuFengJieDu Capsules and Lianhuaqingwen Capsule as a potentially effective treatment for 2019 novel coronavirus, considering previous studies demonstrating their ability to both treat and prevent respiratory infectious viruses (7).
