The Ruskies are coming –again

National Security vs Home Security.

While the national security agencies and Trump argue over whether the Russians have and are continue to interfere with our country’s politics (and they have and continue to do so), I have had my own international intrusions. 

On multiple days this week outside entities have tried to change my website password and have tried to hack into the website in general. WordPress security has notified me of the password change attempts (not successful) and I have installed greater security within my webpages to thwart them Ruskies. How do I know they’re from Russia? Because the security program also tracks IP addresses for me. And yes they’re from Moscow et al.

Sooooo. A). hackers, Russian hackers are messin’ with American assets, Mr. Trump and B). if I can do something (with frankly very little effort) why can’t the national security boys? Answer, they can but not so DT will acknowledge. What a maroon!

The new blade pulled through his beard. The scraping sounds only slightly louder than the run of hot water in the basin, the tingling pain of the steel gripping the stubble was not totally unpleasant. A renewal of sorts, a splitting of the chrysalis after months of fevered hibernation. The ink staining his fingers had been scrubbed away, the cuticles cleaned. He toweled the fog from the mirror. The bags under his eyes seemed less full and a returning younger man was emerging.

He was rumpled. Like a white shirt at the bottom of a suitcase. The trip from Los Angeles hadn’t been easy on the old guy. Coach seating and no food had spindled McNamara like a laundry ticket. It was the first time she met him. They were in the Director’s office, and she wasn’t impressed.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told the Senate intelligence committee that Moscow viewed its attack on the 2016 election as decidedly worthwhile given the chaos it has sown compared with its relatively low cost.

“There should be no doubt that Russia perceived that its past efforts as successful and views the 2018 U.S. midterm elections as a potential target for Russian midterm operations,” Coats said.
