The Trump Putin Sum­mit

Calhoun Times - - FRONT PAGE - Ken Her­ron

If there is one thing that I have learned since Don­ald Trump be­came our pres­i­dent, it is to “Trust Trump.” None of us know the de­tails of the things that were dis­cussed in the four- hour sum­mit meet­ing be­tween our pres­i­dent and the pres­i­dent of Rus­sia. What we do know is that Pres­i­dent Trump made a state­ment in the news con­fer­ence af­ter the meet­ing that they had dis­cussed the com­puter hack­ing of the Demo­crat Party com­puter and Hil­lary’s com­puter and Pres­i­dent Putin as­sured Pres­i­dent Trump that it was not done by the Rus­sians. Pres­i­dent Trump stated that he had no ba­sis to be­lieve the Se­cret Ser­vice. He stated the fol­low­ing day that he mis­read the speech and should have said no rea­son to “not” be­lieve the Se­cret Ser­vice.

The Amer­i­can me­dia, the Demo­crat politi­cians, the nev­erTrump politi­cians, and many of the Repub­li­cans were up­set about this state­ment as he made it. Some of them even went so far as to call this trea­son and a ba­sis for re­mov­ing Pres­i­dent Trump from of­fice.

We have a large group of peo­ple who would like to keep the swamp of Wash­ing­ton the way it is and they will do any­thing that they can do to hin­der Pres­i­dent Trump. The in­dict­ment of the 12 Rus­sians for hack­ing the Demo­crat Party com­puter on Fri­day just be­fore the Sum­mit Meet­ing on Mon­day was one of the things that those that hate Pres­i­dent Trump staged to hurt him. The act that the Rus­sians were charged with took place while Barack Obama was pres­i­dent. What they knew on Fri­day be­fore the sum­mit they knew while Barack Obama was pres­i­dent. If they have suf­fi­cient ev­i­dence to in­dict them, it could have been done be­fore Trump be­came Pres­i­dent. Ac­cord­ing to the news re­ports, the FBI never took pos­ses­sion of the com­puter at the Demo­crat Head­quar­ters and they never took pos­ses­sion of Hil­lary’s com­puter. They only re­ceived copies of the files. Nei­ther of the com­put­ers are still avail­able to be ex­am­ined to­day.

You may re­mem­ber that last year a young man was mur­dered on the street in Wash­ing­ton. He was sus­pected of be­ing the per­son that had re­leased the files of the Demo­crat Party com­puter. He was a com­puter pro­gram­mer and he worked for the Demo­crat Party on the com­puter that had the in­for­ma­tion that was stolen and re­leased. No re­sults of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of this mur­der were ever pub­lished on the na­tional me­dia.

There is no doubt that Mr. Rosen­stein of the At­tor­ney Gen­eral’s of­fice and Mr. Mueller, who is in­ves­ti­gat­ing col­lu­sion be­tween Pres­i­dent Trump and Pres­i­dent Putin, ac­tu­ally hate Pres­i­dent Trump. They are do­ing ev­ery­thing that they can do to cause prob­lems for him. Choos­ing to an­nounce that they have in­dicted 12 Rus­sians at this par­tic­u­lar time was done to force Pres­i­dent Trump to have to bring up Rus­sian in­ter­fer­ence in our elec­tion ef­fort at the sum­mit. That was the pur­pose of the in­dict­ments. Don’t ex­pect any of the 12 Rus­sians to ever be brought to the United States and tried for these in­dict­ments. An in­dict­ment does not mean that the Rus­sians are guilty, it only means that we have ev­i­dence that in­di­cates that they might be guilty. The first rule that is taught in crim­i­nal law is that a per­son is to be con­sid­ered in­no­cent un­til they are proven to be guilty. Even the Rus­sians are cov­ered by this same prin­ci­ple. The op­er­a­tor of Wik­iLeaks re­leased a large num­ber of emails that were from the com­put­ers re­lated to the Hil­lary campaign com­put­ers dur­ing the campaign be­tween Hil­lary Clin­ton and Trump. The Wik­iLeaks op­er­a­tor stated that noth­ing that he re­leased came from Rus­sians. Chances are high that the same peo­ple that sup­plied emails to him also sup­plied oth­ers with copies from their hack­ing.

An accomplished com­puter hacker can sit in his liv­ing room or of­fice any­where in the world and go into un­pro­tected com­put­ers. He or she can leave a cookie in a com­puter so that any email sent or re­ceived sends a copy back to the hacker. They can also leave a cookie that makes it au­to­matic to go into the host com­puter at a later date.

If you watch NCIS or any of the in­ves­tiga­tive TV pro­grams, you will see how quick and easy they go into com­puter sys­tems and look at video cam­eras to see what was hap­pen­ing any­where in the world. They read text mes­sages and emails. This is ac­tu­ally hap­pen­ing in the FBI and the CIA on a daily ba­sis. By the time the in­di­vid­u­als work their way to the top of these or­ga­ni­za­tions, they be­come cal­loused to the suf­fer­ing they cause by their ac­tions and be­lieve that the ends jus­tify the means in ev­ery sit­u­a­tion. The At­tor­ney Gen­eral’s of­fice, the FBI, and the CIA have all worked against Pres­i­dent Trump and they need to have com­plete changes in man­age­ment.

Rus­sia is not the only coun­try that uses Cy­ber War­fare. We in the United States use it to spy on peo­ple all over the world. China and In­dia are both very adept at us­ing Cy­ber War­fare. This is a big con­flict be­tween China and the United States con­cern­ing hack­ing. China man­u­fac­tures com­put­ers, hard drives and de­vel­ops soft­ware to be shipped to the rest of the world. In­dia is very good at all things re­lated to com­put­ers. Many of our com­pa­nies are us­ing In­dian com­pa­nies in In­dia to han­dle their tele­phone en­quiries es­pe­cially where com­put­ers are in­volved.

Get­ting back to the sum­mit be­tween Pres­i­dent Trump and Pres­i­dent Putin, it is im­por­tant that these two men have a good work­ing re­la­tion­ship. I am sure that Pres­i­dent Trump’s com­ments were more for Pres­i­dent Putin’s ears than for any­one else. These two men con­trol the largest nu­clear weapons that the world has ever known. A war be­tween the two coun­tries could be the end of civ­i­liza­tion. We elected Pres­i­dent Trump to lead our na­tion. He wrote the hand­book on ne­go­ti­at­ing. I can only re­peat my be­gin­ning state­ment of “Trust Trump.”
