Department of Homeland Security

Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, had an interview where he spoke about the sources for Hillary’s emails and it isn’t Russia.

Hillary stood on the Debate stage and told the world that “17 intelligence agencies” have concluded that Russia is to blame for the hacks that has sent her campaign into a tailspin this year.

Every Democrat deflects the WikiLeaks questions by saying that Russia stole the information, but that doesn’t seem to be true.

The official statement from the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence have stated that Russia is the culprit, but are they?

Read the statement below and see that there is no evidence at all to confirm Russia’s involvement. The statement says that the methods of the hacking were “consistent” with Russian methods, but nothing concrete.

“The U.S. Intelligence Community (USIC) is confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails from US persons and institutions, including from US political organizations. The recent disclosures of alleged hacked e-mails on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts. These thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the US election process. Such activity is not new to Moscow—the Russians have used similar tactics and techniques across Europe and Eurasia, for example, to influence public opinion there. We believe, based on the scope and sensitivity of these efforts, that only Russia’s senior-most officials could have authorized these activities.”

Not only did the intelligence agencies not confirm Russia’s involvement, they blamed Russia for something they may not be involved in.

If we listen to Julian Assange in his most recent interview, he says that Russia is not the source.

If Russia isn’t the source, then who is?

We don’t know for sure, but there are a lot of people who are saying that Seth Rich, the DNC staffer killed while walking home in DC is most likely the one who leaked the emails.

Lobbyists, WikiLeaks and others have offered a cash reward to information on Seth Rich’s death. The donated rewards are over $140,000 now. Some people believe that Seth Rich is the one that leaked it and they are willing to put their money where their mouth is.

The one thing we do know is that Russia has denied any involvement and we don’t have any evidence that they are to blame.

Democrats have done a good job in deflecting and trying to downplay the credibility of WikiLeaks, but the truth will come out. Unfortunately we won’t know until after this election.

Let us know if you think Russia hacked Hillary in the comments below.

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, who’s running for the Republican presidential nomination, is “very concerned” about Muslims immigrating to the United States, according to a recent interview with Breitbart News.

“I’m very concerned about immigration to this country from countries that have hotbeds of jihadism and hotbeds of this Islamism,” Paul said. “I think there does need to be heightened scrutiny. Nobody has a right to come to America, so this isn’t something that we can say ‘oh, their rights are being violated.’ It’s a privilege to come to America and we need to thoroughly screen those who are coming.”

He added that extra scrutiny is needed to make sure those immigrating from countries with strong terrorist ties aren’t coming for nefarious reasons.

“I think we’re doing the wrong thing by just having this open door policy to bring in people without significant scrutiny,” he explained.

“I’m for increasing scrutiny on people who come on student visas from the 25 countries that have significant jihadism. Also, any kind of permanent visas or green cards, we need to be very careful. I don’t think we’re being careful enough with who we let in.”

After the terrorists attacks on September 11, 2001, the Department of Homeland Security exercised extra scrutiny for people coming from and leaving to certain countries, ranked by the possibility of national security threats. But that program was ended in 2011.

Paul, who is a member of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, plans to reinstate that program, to help weed out possible terrorists who want to immigrate to the United States.
