Analysis | Russia has been meddling in foreign elections for decades. Has it made a difference?
And it’s been doing it a lot more in the past three years.
“The drip, drip, drip” Effect:
They will try, and will try, and will try until they find the suitable for them the “cost efficiency ratio” and the “cost effect” formula. They will try until they are. That’s the Asiatic historical nature of the Russian predatory ruling classes: to raid, to rob, to steal, to exploit, to enslave, in any which Mongol-Tatar way they can, and see the opportunity to, and their sneaky way to do it. They will definitely try until they are definitely stopped.
October 28 Letter is not something that is outside the Russian meddlingefforts but is a result of them because the October 28 Letter was the direct result of the Abedin-Weiner emails affair, which, it looks like to me, was engineered by the Russians on the highest levels (again, the telling style is implicated), with the witting or unwitting participation of the pro-Trump faction of the FBI (Was it the predominant mood in this organization at that particular time: the “post-Obama – pre-Clinton panic”?). That’s again, how it looks to me personally, and to many other observers.
And the logic here is very simple and clear: If Anthony Weiner’s latest sexting episode was the FBI set up as a sting operation (with known or unknown to them political purposes), and if this “operation” lead to the October 28 Letter which changed the course of the elections, then Trump’s election is indeed the “coup d’état” performed by the panicking FBI.
The following questions remain open, unanswered, and apparently even unaddressed: How could the astronomical amount of 650,000 emails land on Abedin’s computer other than been dumped there, and most likely by the Russian hackers, and most likely to specifically produce this “October 28 Letter Effect”?
“It was convincingly observed that if Weiner “sent or received 200 emails a day, 365 days a year–a considerable number!–it would take 3,250 days, or just about nine years, to accumulate 650,000 on the laptop’s hard drive.”
Everything looks well calculated and thought out, as their or his Russian-German (+ Chinese, etc., etc.) habit and styles are, and this psycho-sexo-political drama (sells soap well too), fits the previous patterns and experiences with “sexo-politics”, a very efficient geopolitical tool in skillful hands.
The role of J. Comey in all this might open some questions. My impression is that he personally is the ethical, maybe even very ethical and apolitical person, but he was in some ways deceived and manipulated by the upper echelons of the FBI leadership on which he relied upon in the day to day management. They just used him as the “ethical cover” or shield, and, possibly, run those “everyday affairs” as they saw fit. But this is my hypothesis, and it might not be necessarily correct. I think that the future historians will probably have the intense interest in these “matters”.

“We identified two waves of Russian meddling since the early 1990s. The first wave lasted until 2014 and targeted only post-Soviet countries. Since then, a second wave has expanded dramatically into established Western democracies.
However, an examination of both of these waves shows that Russia’s efforts have made little difference…
Of course, Russia may still have influenced the outcome. As FiveThirtyEight’s Harry Enten notes, “the drip, drip, drip” of these email releases “makes it all but impossible to measure their effect precisely.” And Trump won by such a thin margin that even a small Russian impact could have tipped the election.
But there is far stronger evidence that other factors were more critical. For instance, public opinion shifted suddenly after Oct. 28, when FBI Director James B. Comey announced that he was reopening an investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state. And the closeness of the election mostly resulted from polarization between Democrats and Republicans that long predates Russian President Vladimir Putin or the rise of Trump. ”
“Accidents” and “ISIS” – LABRAT KNATS! – Update 1.8.18:
The similarity between the putative or suspected for “terrorism” domestic “accidents” and the foreign terrorist propaganda appears to be evident in both style and substance, which leads to the hypothesis of the common roots, actors, perpetrators, organizers, and authors, and also, and importantly, the common strategy and the design of these acts.

The almost miraculous resolution of the “ISIS crisis” (that was apparently, to quite a visible degree, started, conducted, and “resolved” in the media), within the context of the first year of Trump’s Presidency, besides all the deserved credits, induces also some thoughts about the role of the deliberate design in the origins, process, and manifestations of this crisis, outside of its immediate theater of operations. This line of thought corresponds with the hypothesis of the “message crimes” of some of the various domestic “accidents”, and their possible causal connections with the various world terrorist groups, their “message crimes”, and their handlers. This connection was alluded to in the previous statistical comparison of the domestic accidents and the global terrorist threats.
