The Biden White House reached out to popular influencers on TikTok, the Chinese social media platform that spies on users’ data, to give them a briefing on the Russian invasion of Ukraine. During that briefing, White House Chief Liar Jen Psaki argued that the 2016 election was “hacked” by the Russians, even though there is ample evidence, including the testimony of the president of the cyber forensics firm hired by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) that says there was never any evidence to support that lie.
The White House spoke to 30 “top TikTok stars” on a Zoom call on Thursday, according to the Washington Post.
The White House has been closely watching TikTok’s rise as a dominant news source, leading to its decision to approach a select group of the platform’s most influential names. This week, the administration began working with Gen Z For Change, a nonprofit advocacy group, to help identify top content creators on the platform to orchestrate a briefing aimed at answering questions about the conflict and the United States’ role in it.
Psaki said to the influencers, “Thank you all for everything you’re doing. I mean, use of your platforms to educate, to inform, to debunk, to demystify, during what is a very tumultuous, heartbreaking time in the world is remarkable, and we recognize and value all of your platforms.”
In other words, the Biden White House schooled the top influencers of the communist Chinese social media platform on how to spread the Democratic Party’s lies and misinformation to their audiences about the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
TikTok is a short-form video clip app that has had warnings go out that it allegedly has security risks of data being captured by the Communist Chinese government. Our own Defense Department said that the social media app has “potential security risks associated with its use.”
The US Army and the US Nacy banned TikTok from being used on government phones back in 2020. In this past June, the Chinese app “gave itself permission” to collect biometric data from US users, including voiceprints and faceprints.
So then my question is why the heck is the Biden White House using the platform to spread propaganda if our own armed forces have banned its use? Only the Biden administration would do that.
One TikTok influencer on the Zoom call who was born in Ukraine said US officials dodged questions and that “The energy of the call felt like a press briefing for kindergarteners.”
That’s because Psaki’s mission was to tell the influencers what the Biden administration wants them to spread on the platform. It was a propaganda instruction mission. We know this, because during the call with the TikTok personalities, Psaki spread the completely debunked lie that Russia “hacked” the 2016 election with the insinuation that it helped Trump beat the much loathed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
“If you look back at 2014, and frankly even 2016, when Russia invaded Ukraine and then in 2016, when they, you know, of course, hacked our election here, we did not do that, we did not declassify information,” Psaki told the group on the Zoom call.
That is quite possibly the most irresponsible thing a White House press secretary has ever said publicly. There is so much misinformation that has been put out to the world about this, even to the point where Fox News wrote, “While Russian hackers were behind the stealing of emails from Democratic officials like John Podesta, there is no evidence that they tampered with election results as part of the 2016 hacking spree.”
There also isn’t any evidence that the Russians stole the emails. In fact, there is a report that shows the hack was an inside job.
A group of former US intelligence officers that calls itself the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, or VIPS, said there was an insider leak that occurred thanks to someone with access to a DNC computer. The evidence they found shows that the data was transferred to a USB stick and not done online. This means there was someone on the inside at the DNC that copied that data. The way they came to this conclusion was that according to the server logs, the rate of the data being transferred was too fast for it to be an online transfer and was in the parameters of a local USB drive.
Of course, the DNC refutes that argument, but you cannot believe a thing former DNC chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) said, because she openly lied about an interaction with the FBI about their server being hacked by Russians. When the FBI heard about it, they went to the DNC headquarters and asked to take a look at the server. Wasserman Schultz refused to let them look at it. You would think since the FBI has some of the best cyber forensics people in the world, they would want them to take a look. But Wasserman Schultz was covering something up. She knew they were not hacked by the Russians. That was just a cover story. It was an inside job, and on top of that, she didn’t want the FBI to get a look at the things that were on that server.
Wasserman Schultz then went on television and told the world that the FBI did “virtually nothing” to help them.
Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson’s testified before the House Intelligence Committee about the Russian hacking of the party’s computer system, saying that the DNC didn’t accept help from his agency after its email systems were hacked.
Wasserman Schultz came back at that when asked about the Johnson’s testimony.
“He’s wrong in every respect,” Wasserman Schultz said to CNN. She said Johnson “is utterly misinformed” and the version of events he provided is “simply not accurate.” She didn’t give any evidence that he was utterly misinformed and simply not accurate. She just said it, and the Fake News network allowed her to say it without any pushback.
Johnson said of Wasserman Schultz and the DNC’s response to the FBI’s offer to help, “The response I got was, the FBI had spoken to them. They don’t want our help. They have CrowdStrike, the cyber security firm,” Johnson said. “I recall very clearly that I was not pleased that we were not in there helping them patch this vulnerability.”
Many people believe it was Seth Rich, a disgruntled DNC employee who supported Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic Primary and he saw that Sanders was getting the shaft once again by the party, so he copied the emails and gave them to WikiLeaks to publish. Not long after that, Rich was gunned down in an assassination that the DC Metro Police called a robbery gone bad, even though Rich still had his wallet and his jewelry on him after he was shot in the back of the head.
I believe the story about Russians hacking the DNC server was to cover up the embarrassing scenario where one of their own leaked damaging information to WikiLeaks.
Rich had allegedly learned of a deal that was made between the DNC and Hillary Clinton. Apparently, Barack Obama left the DNC penniless and they could not fund Democrat races across the country. Hillary said she would fund the entire DNC if they made sure she got the nomination. We know this to be true, because the DNC was sued over that deal, and the judge ruled that the DNC had the right to rig the primary election against Sanders and in favor of Hillary Clinton.
Instead of having the FBI look at their server, the DNC hired CrowdStrike, a cyber security and forensics firm, to look at the server. Remember, a private firm will say anything the client paid them to say.
Now we really get into the lies and misinformation of the Democratic Party for this subject.
After CrowdStrike gave their assessment for what they found on the DNC server, Wasserman Schultz said CrowdStrike discovered that the Russians did hack the email server. The whole argument the Democrats were trying to make was that the Russians hacking the server was the story and not the damaging information that was found in the emails that were leaked to WikiLeaks.
In Congress, during a closed hearing by the House Intelligence Committee, CrowdStrike President Shawn Henry testified under oath that his firm found no evidence of the Russians hacking the server. Yes, you read that right.
“We did not have concrete evidence that the data was exfiltrated [moved electronically] from the DNC, but we have indicators that it was exfiltrated,” Henry said.
Henry reiterated his claim on multiple occasions:
- “There are times when we can see data exfiltrated, and we can say conclusively. But in this case it appears it was set up to be exfiltrated, but we just don’t have the evidence that says it actually left.”
- “There’s not evidence that they were actually exfiltrated. There’s circumstantial evidence but no evidence that they were actually exfiltrated.”
- “There is circumstantial evidence that that data was exfiltrated off the network. … We didn’t have a sensor in place that saw data leave. We said that the data left based on the circumstantial evidence. That was the conclusion that we made.”
“Sir, I was just trying to be factually accurate, that we didn’t see the data leave, but we believe it left, based on what we saw.”
Asked directly if he could “unequivocally say” whether “it was or was not exfiltrated out of DNC,” Henry told the committee: “I can’t say based on that.”
How did Wasserman Schultz come across CrowdStrike? All I know is Shawn Henry, one of CrowdStrike’s owners and President of the firm, used to work for the FBI. He was the FBI executive assistant and protégé of the then FBI Director Robert Mueller. Yes. That Robert Mueller. And Henry stayed in contact with Mueller after he left the FBI and went to CrowdStrike. I’m not saying Mueller pointed the DNC at CrowdStrike. I’m just saying it’s one heck of a coincidence.
These are reasons you can never trust what a Democrats says.
