Is Trump creating diversion for Russian Cyber Attacks?



The USA federal security infrastructure must have been pre-occupied with an enduring cyber security failure to not predict the insurrection of yesterday that Trump and his allies have planned for many weeks.

As few as ten Capitol coppers on Capitol Hill were overwhelmed by as many as four thousand rioters including white supremacists, school dropouts, life-failures, gang members, and Trump goons.

How could the security intelligence community have failed to forewarn and prepare for this catastrophe?

Around the world, senior officials look at America’s arsenal and in seeing this incompetence and misconduct are demanding that Trump must be led out the White House door and into prison to prevent a worse calamity of global proportions.

For protective network security purposes, like the 2013 encryption of all user data by Microsoft, the US Government is considered to be a persistent advanced threat then and now, writes   in ZDNet.

Everyone in the security intelligence world knows this to be true and that signals intelligence for the past 80 years have topped the ‘need-to-know’ list.

Every nation that wants to remain secure, must learn what the spies watching it are doing and how they conduct those operations—what they may have learned. That puts the USA at the head of the list for both enemies and allies alike.

The United States is Falling. What will happen next?

The United States is under an advanced persistent threat (APT) which was launched by the Russian Federation against the United States beginning probably in 2019 when a small package of code was placed at the manufacturer’s level into the primary source code of a network management system used by the US government and many enterprise networks around the world. The first indication of effects of this exploit seem to leave a path of ‘breadcrumbs’ starting in March of 2020. Since then, Russia has had system control and management capability for the Pentagon’s computer networks as well as all US security establishments.

Once the new software was installed in various systems, the Kremlin’s operators were able to access as high levels of authority, most of the United States government’s security apparatus which they did. Most traffic seems to be message and mail monitoring, according to high level global cyber security experts who don’t want to be named on this matter for personal security reasons.

The US government security establishment has claimed that the operations of Russia are primarily intelligence gathering. This is credible because that tends to be the way the Kremlin operates. Information is far more valuable over the long term than acts of cyber malignancy.

The strength of the APT is in its pervasiveness. Basically, there is nothing that the Russian security operators are not able to learn about anything the Americans are doing in the security and foreign affairs realm plus internal national infrastructure, academia and political management.

For example, the Kremlin is able to read any internal (even insiders’ non-routable top security systems) emails.

During a “revolution” fiasco on Wednesday in which Donald Trump made a power grab by sending thousands of White Supremacists against the US Capitol Building.

Revolution” was the word used by a woman rioter who says she was maced by police, when she talked to a reporter (below). “We are storming the Capitol. It’s a revolution,” she said.


Trump must have realized that he went too far. Or did he?

Four people died in Trump’s ‘revolution’ which was eventually quelled by FBI swat squad members and the Washington DC National guard which was called to action by DC Mayor Muriel Bowser who initiated a curfew of 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM beginning Wednesday evening.

Some reportage indicates the Michael Pence contacted the national guard, however,  that has not been verified. A serving woman in the National Guard tells FPMag that the call came from the Mayor’s office at around 4:00 PM but she does not know if it was an inquiry or a direct request. “Direct requests are normally made in writing as a follow up to a conversation,” she noted.

Trump’s continued seemingly deranged attacks on US democracy are right out of Vladimir Putin’s playbook. It’s all about creating chaos to the effect of deteriorating normal functionality.

It is working. The USA is dysfunctional at many levels, particularly in respect of a killer pandemic that has reached past half a million excess deaths, today.

Long established sources in the global ‘spook’ world insist this is a collaboration with Vladimir Putin via indirect communications and not just the hysteria of a personality-disordered crackpot.


Trump is doing four things that raise suspicion of high treason for personal gain:

  1. Making outrageous appeals to the most credulous American early-school dropouts.
  2. Mining those supporters for nearly a billion dollars in a fundraising campaign.
  3. Dominating America’s and the world’s news and social media calamity after calamity.
  4. Distracting from the most serious cyber warfare victory in human history.
  5. Trump is complicit, by extension of his and Giuliani’s communiques with Vladimir Putin’s chain of comms in these activities.

Many persons were seriously injured during a USA President-led white supremacist attack on the United States Capitol Building while the 6 January ceremonial counting of Electoral College votes was taking place under the chairmanship of Vice President Michael Pence.

Helen Brisbois, an FPMag correspondent and member of The RINJ Foundation, a global women’s rights group, met her life-partner Wednesday briefly after the Capitol Building had been secured. He is a male police officer. Yesterday, he was inside the Capitol Building since around 2:20PM local time, later besieged by thousands of rioters sent to the building by Donald Trump, his son and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani among others. Brisbois reports that, “the Capitol Building has been trashed”.

Rudy Giuliani has been acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer since Michael Cohen, his former lawyer, was imprisoned for crimes he commit as lawyer for Donald Trump.

Cohen has since written a book about his experiences with Trump.

Giuliani was featured on Russian State Television, yesterday, while the insurrection was taking place. 

Giuliani’s connections with Russian intelligence operatives have been suspected by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The White House and hence the public has been warned about Giuliani’s affiliations, for security protection reasons, according to an FBI source who is a person familiar with the matter but not authorized to comment and requested anonymity.

Thousands of protestors became rioters when Giuliani told them vigorously to wage a “trial by combat” by heading to the US Capitol Building and attacking the ceremonial acceptance of the Electoral College votes for the US Presidency.

In plain language, the chances for another calamitous event in the United States are at level three, ‘red’.  It could get worse in the next two weeks unless the Cabinet or the Congress acts today to oust Trump.  “This would also keep him from running in the next election,” is the thought of at least one reader who responded to a survey.
