#Crowdstrike must be loving the free advertising. Remember it was "Guccifer 2.0" aka Russia that first disputed the DNC hack by Russia by creating a WordPress blog deflect GRU involvement.
From my article: "The Hack": "When DNC CEO Amy Dacey was told by their IT people that something odd was happening with their servers. They hired Crowdstrike, a cyber security company owned by Moscow-born CTO Dmitri Alperovitch and former McAfee anti-virus vet George Kurtz."
"In a blitz of media interviews, Crowdstrike immediately swung the finger towards Russia as the culprit blaming “two sophisticated adversaries on the (DNC) network” called “Cozy Bear” and “Fancy Bear”. dangerousmagazine.com/2018/07/19/hac…
"Cozy Bear has been around since 2008 and has focused on diplomatic, military, telecom and government targets. Ironically some of the emails sent by Cosy Bear to phish are urgent requests to click on stories about election rigging." dangerousmagazine.com/2018/07/19/hac…
I spent and spend a significant amount of time sorting through facts and fiction about the 2016 election. There are plenty of views on "Why Hillary Lost" but few real attempts to measure the various efforts applied to move the needle either way.
The baseline in America is money. Multiplied by two virtually identical parties using hot button platforms to move fringe areas towards their party. The system is so entrenched and polished as to actually unify two identically sized groups.
At first Trump after stalling badly, out hustled, out thought and played the holes that Hillary left wide open. Using the efficiency and immediate impact that only social media can provide. But it all took money. Lots of money. independent.co.uk/news/world/ame…
Missing from both Trump and the Democratic candidates is introspection on how to allow the American people to vote intelligently, fairly and and add accountability to hucksterism and astroturfing. Americans still trust the system but for how long? people-press.org/2019/07/22/tru…
This chart shows the divide as to who trusts and who distrusts government. Sadly, quality of character, truthfulness, reliability and social/fiscal responsibility are exactly the traits that don't resonate in social media campaigns or even in media coverage.
The answer is simple: A dating app. Define the characteristics of an ideal president, project your expectations and concerns, apply medical, psychological testing and preagreed skills and voters are matched up to a candidate sight unseen. On election day the winner is revealed.
