Assassination: U.S. Payback For Russian Hacking?

Has the United States begun payback activities against Russia for their ambitious hacking attacks and roll in attempting to influence our presidential election in favor of Donald Trump?

Did The U.S. Covertly Orchestrate The Assentation Of The Russian Ambassador to Turkey?
During both the primaries and presidential election WikiLeaks released a seemingly never-ending series of emails allegedly gained through hacking of the DNC (Democratic National Committee) and the personal emails of John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign Chairman. This email scandal has been well documented from many angles, but what has NOT been covered much to date is… What Is the United States going to do about aggressive foreign governments hacking into computer and data storage systems belonging to our U.S. government, business entities and citizens of the United States of America?

It is alleged by various government agencies, congress members, news agencies and others that the Russians are behind the hacking that furnished WikiLeaks with the email documents that were publically published; emails that exposed a great deal of sensational information that has proven to be damaging in many respects. My big questions are… did the Russians hack Hillary Clinton’s personal email server and thereby gain access to classified government information? Did the Russians distribute and/or secretively leak information to various terrorist groups? Was the classified information gleaned from Hillary Clinton’s illegal personal email server setup to bypass the secured government email servers responsible for the U.S. Benghazi Embassy attack?

So now what? What actions will the United States take as retribution? Perhaps the bigger question is… what will the U.S. do to prevent hacking, stealing of America’s secrets, the plundering of intellectual property, sabotaging the U.S. economy and infrastructure or permitting our enemies to pull-off a repeat performance whereby they interfere with our free elections and worse in the future?

My Opinion: Condensed Event Sequence Leading Up To The Russian Ambassador Killing
1. As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sets up private email server bypassing secured gov system.
2. Hillary Clinton’s private email server and likely other devices she and support staff used are hacked by the Russians and up to four other countries.
3. The Russians and / or other countries sold, traded or gave highly classified documents to terrorists and / or potential enemies of the United States. 
4. These docs included info on U.S. embassies and more specifically, our counter terrorist operations being run out of the U.S. embassy in Benghazi.
5. This information outraged the terrorists in and around the Benghazi area.
6. Provoked and inspired terrorist using classified details of the Benghazi embassy operations docs gained through Russian hacking of Hillary Clinton’s email server planned and executed the attack on the Benghazi U.S. embassy.
7. To Russia with love… The U.S. begins Russian payback by covertly orchestrating the public assassination of the Russian ambassador to Turkey – an ambassador for an ambassador, Andrey G. Karlov in retaliation for John Christopher “Chris” Stevens.

Connect The Dots……
So why did so many people in the Obama administration, including the “extremely careless (negligent) Hillary Clinton”, lie to the American people about why the American embassy in Benghazi was attacked using a false narrative to blame it on a video? I offer you that the lie told was to cover-up of one of the worst security breaches, if not the worst ever, in the history of the United States of America… coordinated by the one and only former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton through her careless and reckless use of a personal email server setup for the express purpose of illegally bypassing America’s secure government communication systems.

Hillary, President Obama and other high ranking administration officials almost certainly knew Hillary’s email server was hacked before the Benghazi attack. Knowing how secretive much of the stolen documents were, they knew and could speculate how this information could and would likely be used by our enemies. I speculate that our government realized almost immediately that the Benghazi Embassy Attack was an indirect result of Hillary’s private email server being hacked and compromised.

This particular hack resulting in stolen information was way too damaging, too embarrassing and too shameful for the truth to be made public. After all, it would have ruined Hillary’s career and any chance of her making a run for president were it to become known and of public knowledge. More importantly for the Obama administration, it would greatly tarnish President Obama’s legacy. How would such a negligent security breach affect America’s reputation and standing in the world? How would it look to Americans if they were to find out the truth about how negligent Hillary actually was and the fact that those responsible for overseeing the Secretary of State turned a blind eye. Nobody enforced the strict operational policies, procedures and rules when it came to protecting America’s secrets. Respect, what respect? So many at the top level of the U.S. government, including President Obama, not only knew the video was not the cause of the Benghazi embassy attack but also knew it was more likely connected to the hacking of Hillary’s private server.

U.S. Involvement In Russian Ambassador’s Assassination?
Now lets return to focus on the assassination of the Russian ambassador to Turkey. Interestingly and so telling, as of the time of this post I have not come across news reports that confirm any terrorist group, not ISIS, not Al Qaeda or any other terrorist entity has officially claimed responsibility for the Russian ambassador’s assassination. History indicates that terrorist groups seem to all share something in common, they are proud of their attack successes whether it be against those they deem to be guilty or innocent, Muslims or Infidels, it doesn’t matter to them.

Is the United States responsible?

America may have a lot of “an eye for an eye” and “a tooth for a tooth” retaliation to get around to… but, it is my opinion the United States government should start by punishing the one person responsible for related deplorable acts of treason – Hillary Clinton.

Ford Fiesta Door Latch Replacement Safety Recall #15S16

Well, it’s about time! The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) @ 1-888-327-4236 and Ford Motor Company have finally agreed to a manufacturer safety recall. I recommend that all Ford Fiesta owners, whether having issues with faulty or breaking door latches or not, call Ford Motor Company customer care @ (800) 392-3673 to get the facts about defective Fiesta door latches.

At this time it is unclear as to whether Ford issued the recall voluntarily or was forced by the NHTSA. Based on my personal experience with Ford’s customer care service and warranty integrity I would speculate they were forced into issuing the safety recall for replacement of defective Fiesta door latches.

I personally have just suffered a 3rd broken passenger car door latch on my 30 month old Ford Fiesta. In all my years I have never experienced even a single broken car door latch on any of my dozens of cars nor have I known anyone who has. To me it was pretty obvious from the first 2 doors latches that broke within 12 hours of each other that this was a Fiesta defect. Ford didn’t do the right thing on the first two broken doors. No, they didn’t pay for the full cost of repair at the time. They didn’t voluntarily issue a safety recall knowing full well that thousands of Fiesta’s around the world were suffering from defective door latches – a true safety concern!

In this case, if you examine the actions of Ford Motor Company as I have, you might come to the same conclusion as I have. In my opinion, regardless of all their hype and hollow words, Ford Motor Company is not actually concerned with their customer’s safety. They’re just ALL about PROFIT.

FILE A COMPLAINT

If your car door won’t latch… CALL the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) @ 1-888-327-4236 to file a complaint!    OR…» File A Complaint Online!

Now get this – I called a Ford Dealer to have my broken door latch repaired under the recall. They were aware of the recall but were not yet prepared to handle the repair under the safety recall, claiming Ford had not given them instructions and had not setup the program yet. Next I called Ford Motor Company customer care. Yep, same story right from the horsepower’s mouth. We’re not prepared to begin the broken door latch replacements on Fiesta’s yet – THE PARTS ARE NOT AVAILABLE and WE HAVE NOT DOCUMENTED THE PROGRAM OR PROCEDURE. So even though they have admitted to the door latch/lock problem and issued the safety recall they still are not repairing Fiesta doors – WHEN FORD, WHEN?

I’m not at all pleased with Ford Customer Care.

Frankly, I’m down right disgusted with Ford, their customer care, and Ford’s warranty integrity.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Big Lolli Fix, Did They Pop Google?

Did Google Get Trumped?

It was widely said: You can fool some of the people some of the time but you can’t Google all of the people all of the time. So did Samsung really pop Google with an Android performance fix for their lineup of Galaxy mobile phones? A fix that targets the operating system memory issue? Did Samsung… Donald Google?

Do you think for one moment that Google would allow another company to actually modify code at the core level of it’s market dominating Android operating system? Doing so would amount to a completely new version of Android, copyright issues and loss of control for Google. What do you think? I think Not!

Two Scenarios

In my mind their are only two possible scenarios that may explain what really happened behind the scenes and why it may appear to some that Google was trumped by Samsung in fixing the Lollipop memory bug.

Samsung Covers For Google

The fist of two likely options is that the fix is actually just a temporary work-around patch application that installs on top of the actual unmodified Google Android operating system; much like any other 3rd party software. If Google were to release an application like this it would have the effect of making their OS appear less than perfect to all of the people. So by agreement Google may have collaborated with Samsung to release a temporary application that would help to release memory and restore performance. Samsung comes out looking heroic in the media and receives untold marketing value pushing the release of their new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge cell phones. Older Galaxy S models are now also being updated to Lollipop presumably because a fix is now available.

Meanwhile, Google can continue to develop core code to overcome the memory loss issues and quietly release a better fix in a future update. But none the less, Samsung deserves big Kudos for possibly developing and distributing this performance restoring application even though Google may have had a hand in it; or more likely, hands completely wrapped around.

Clever Win-Win Samsung-Google Public Relations

The second of two probable options would be that if the actual core code of the Android operating system was updated then it’s pretty much a slam dunk that Google actually developed the code for this performance fixing update and delivered it to Samsung for first roll-out by special agreement. Why?

Well, if I were Google, I wouldn’t want all of the people to realize my Android operating system had performance issues. So, leveraging my brightest thinkers and my best public relations artisans I would come up with a creative win-win marketing strategy for rolling out this better late than never performance restoring software update. Too bad it may have taken Google this long to come up with a strategy that could shield them from fault and at the same time provide favorable publicity for a top tier business partner.

Either way, Samsung appears to me to have been used by Google for cover.

So now you know my opinion!
