The cost of Obama's spying on Trump

The New York Times reported, "Chinese intelligence agents acquired National Security Agency hacking tools and repurposed them in 2016 to attack American allies and private companies in Europe and Asia, a leading cybersecurity firm has discovered. The episode is the latest evidence that the United States has lost control of key parts of its cybersecurity arsenal."

2016.

When Obama the Spy was president and using the NSA not to keep an eye on Red China, but to spy on someone who dared stand up to him.

Of course, his intelligence chief was a communist so maybe this was intentional. At any rate, I wish Bill Barr luck in cleaning out this stable.

    2. Hang them from the Washington Monument; that spire would then serve two purposes in American history.

  4. I originally thought the Sheryl Atkinson story sounded a bit out there on here computers being hacked, but with all that has come out on the Trump spying that I never would have imagined happening in the US, I wonder...

    1. Which is why, when some crook gets indicted and they say they also found kiddie porn on their computer, I have to look at such an accusation with an extremely jaded eye.
      If "they" can get into Sharyl Attkisson's computers, "they" can get into anyone's and do all sorts of mischief.

    3. Sheryl was getting the full treatment from someone, and the full story's never come out though she did discuss it in her book. At one time she watched what she'd written being removed from her computer, and she grabbed her iPhone to record it happening!

  5. We think that Sotero has reached bottom, but the news keeps Pointing out that his administration was even worse than imagined.

  7. With the immature, stupid, arrogant, criminal people who are in charge of national security, seems like the only reason there hasn't been another horrific attack on the US is that the Chinese are doing more damage stealthily.
