The Nation: DNC Hack Was 'Inside Job,' Not By Russia

Todd Beamon, Newsmax

The Democratic National Committee was not hacked by Russia — nor by anyone else — but instead was "an inside job by someone with access to the DNC's system," according to a report in The Nation.

"There was no hack of the Democratic National Committee's system on July 5 last year — not by the Russians, not by anyone else," according to the Nation's report, referencing conclusions by a group of former NSA computer experts.

"Hard science now demonstrates it was a leak — a download executed locally with a memory key or a similarly portable data-storage device.

"In short, it was an inside job by someone with access to the DNC's system," the experts concluded, since a remote hack of the committee's servers — with the volume of data stolen — would have been technologically impossible.

"This casts serious doubt on the initial 'hack,' as alleged, that led to the very consequential publication of a large store of documents on WikiLeaks last summer," the experts concluded.

In addition, the experts found forensic evidence proving the initial documents published by the hacker Guccifer 2.0 were forgeries intended to finger Moscow.

"Forensic investigations of documents made public two weeks prior to the July 5 leak by the person or entity known as Guccifer 2.0 show that they were fraudulent," the experts said.

"Before Guccifer posted them, they were adulterated by cutting and pasting them into a blank template that had Russian as its default language.

"Guccifer took responsibility on June 15 for an intrusion the DNC reported on June 14 and professed to be a WikiLeaks source — claims essential to the official narrative implicating Russia in what was soon cast as an extensive hacking operation.

"To put the point simply," the experts concluded, "forensic science now devastates this narrative."

The Reagan Tax Cuts Worked

Thanks to "bracket creep," the inflation of the 1970s pushed millions of taxpayers into higher tax brackets even though their inflation-adjusted incomes were not rising. To help offset this tax increase and also to improve incentives to work, save, and invest, President Reagan proposed sweeping tax rate reductions during the 1980s. What happened? Total tax revenues climbed by 99.4 percent during the 1980s, and the results are even more impressive when looking at what happened to personal income tax revenues. Once the economy received an unambiguous tax cut in January 1983, income tax revenues climbed dramatically, increasing by more than 54 percent by 1989 (28 percent after adjusting for inflation).
