Crowdstrike was paid by the DNC to examine their server (FBI was refused access).


How do we know the people at Crowdstrike aren't Clinton supporters?

That's peculiar, because every time I've heard the network people in my business talk about setting up, configuring and trouble-shooting bandwidth, they always talk about megabits per second. Why are Lawrence's anonymous experts using a strange bandwidth unit?

The other thing is that someone else has already critiqued Lawrence's article. While the critic, one Brian Feldman of New York Magazine, points out that Lawrence hides behind a lot of confusing technobabble in order to sound authoritative, Feldman also points out that 22 megabytes per second translates to about 176 megabits per second, and states that such bandwith is already available to all enterprise level entities such as the Democratic National Committee or the Russian Federal Security Service.

One last thing, here's the Wiki detailing the various Bandwidth speeds available today. Anyone else notice that the Wireless 802.11n and the Wireless 802.11ac protocols both support bandwidth far greater than what Patrick Lawrence claims is available, and is also far greater than Lawrence's claimed hack download speed?

The tires on my truck are rated for over 200 mph.
Tell my truck, it can go over 200 mph now.

It may be able to handle it, but that does not mean they can produce it, and according to the experts, it is not possible yet.

Nobody ever believed Russia was involved with the DNC hacking anyway. I think the russians were ordered to try to contact Trump but still had minimal interactions with him and whatever they tried to do to set him up was a fail.
But even if they are innocent of influencing our election, they ARE guilty of colluding with our Deep State and both should be held accountable.

I'm actually tired of hearing about the Russians and the attempt to sway an election. At the end of the day Trump is still the President. The USA got a taste of our own medicine. How many governments have we interfered with? The fact the Dems are crying is laughable, given their insistence that voter fraud isn't an issue and that our election process is safe.
Hillary lost. She lost because she was slightly worse than Trump.

Some quick research says this group formed in 2003 because of what they felt was disinformation from the WH about WMD. Can we assume you would not refer to them as partisan hacks over that?

If you want to discredit Crowdstrike, that's fine. A third party, UK intelligence, warned the US that the Russians had hacked the DNC servers.

British intelligence among first to sound alarm ov er Russia’s US hacks - France 24

The Nation, right-wing? Hardly. You may want to use this link to check out the leanings of of publications. Or, you know, Google it.



Well, maybe right wing. The magazine did endorse Bernie.

Because your post contains more than a few flaws, and it would be uncomfortable for you if I point them out.
you are correct that I have been doing mechanical work for over 40 years...now a maintenance supervisor.... but I have also been a computer geek for about 40+ years too...ever since HS...and back then it was cardpunch machines... took Pascal, Fortran, Cobol, and machine language a very long time ago, my cobol final was an entire case of cards... we used a Digital PDP11(if my memory serves) mainframe with 12" magnetic tape....a very long time ago

I am not pretending to be an expert... but these sites say that my opinion was very close to being accurate

Which countries have the fastest internet: CHART - Business Insider

it shows the average across the usa (as of 8 months ago is 16.3Mb/s...we here in the USA are very slow compared to other countries like South Korea, what have an average speed of 26Mb/s

these are the average actual usage speeds, not a connection speed or a projected max speed

btw, for those whom may not know the diff, when looking at what some of us are posting...small b is bit , where a big B would be Byte

British intelligence in 2015 warned the US that the Russians has hacked the DNC server. The FBI confirmed that finding.

So now we're supposed to reject what the British and the FBI said based on some wacky theory about download speed.

This new report reeks of fake news.

If the DNC had been warned in 2015 but still did what they did, who is the fool here?
