aside Where Else Could The President Be Getting His Surveillance Data?

It was fun to view Fox News reporting in retrospect in light of today’s news and the above is a good selection. But back on track, I found an interesting tidbit in the Blaze that could provide a plausible explanation/ source for our republican President Donald Trump’s paranoia over being under surveillance.

Here is the rest of the story…

On 1/12/17, Tré GoinsPhillips of The Blaze penned the following article, “Giuliani finally gets a job in the Trump administration.”

“Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a longtime supporter of Donald Trump, will advise the president-elect on cyber-security issues by leading a coalition of experts from the private sector.”

He will be “sharing his expertise and insight as a trusted friend concerning private sector cyber-security problems and emerging solutions developing in the private sector,” according to a Thursday press release from Trump’s transition team.”

“Cyber-security is a familiar topic to Giuliani, 72, who runs Giuliani Partners, an international security firm.”

“My belief is, as always, is the answer to cyber-security is going to be found in the private sector,” he said during an interview on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” Thursday morning. “That’s where we have the great creativity, that’s where we have a great amount of money and that’s where we have companies.”Image result for photos of rudy giuliani on fox tv

“It is not yet clear exactly what Giuliani’s post will look like, or what his official title — if any — will be. Nevertheless, it is obvious cyber-security will play an important role in the Trump White House following a presidential election rampant with accusations of Russian tampering, as evidenced by hacks into the Democratic National Committee and the email account of John Podesta.  Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman. According to the RNC, the Russian government also tried and failed to breach RNC servers.”

“This is a rapidly evolving field both as to intrusions and solutions and it is critically important to get timely information from all sources,” the Trump team statement read.”

“In order to better protect the U.S. on the cyber-security front, the president-elect wants to “obtain experiential and anecdotal information from each executive on challenges faced by his/her company,” highlighting the importance of the private sector in solving this issue.”

“As the use of modern communications and technology has moved forward at unparalleled speed the necessary defenses have lagged behind,” the statement continued. “The president-elect recognizes that this needs immediate attention and input from private sector leaders to help the government plan to make us more secure.”

“News of Trump’s desire to partner with the private sector comes after he has repeatedly cast doubt on U.S. intelligence reports, though he did concede this week that “it was Russia” that hacked the Democrats during the election.”

  1. I almost laugh every time one of King tRumps minions uses the term “unidentified source” who has told them things in support of the King! It would seem that the King and company, are having a difficult time remembering if they like unidentified sources or want them all thrown in jail. During the campaign the tRump said many times that the sources leaking information about Hillary were great yuge patriots and should be thanked for their service, now that the leaks are about him they suddenly are committing perjury and treason and need to be prosecuted. Thus we get to Giuliani well known for leaking damaging evidence for political gain, who is in charge of cyber security for the King tRump! This whole episode involving the highest level of our government would have been grounds for immediate impeachment in days gone bye! Grrrr!!!

    • Dear Crustyolemothman,

      You are making the same argument that I was debating in real time when these events were unfolding. They were committing the very same crimes that they were accusing HRC of doing.

  2. Gronda, I heard this morning that some North Korean actors stole $81 million from a bank transactional website. This is serious stuff. We better be throwing our very best and brightest at this and it better be coordinated with other efforts. Trump has the one of the finest groups in the worlds working in his agencies, but he would rather get his information from Fox and Friends. Keith

    • Dear Keith,

      Cyber-security is a big deal and we do have great people working at this. If I was running an agency, I would do what’s best for this country knowing that I could not count on my boss for leadership. He is worse than useless but for now, he is our president.

      Ciao, Gronda

      • Gronda, agreed. We have all worked for imperfect bosses and leaders, but we must still do our jobs. I see these wonderful commercials about these bright people working for Exxon-Mobil, but I wonder what they think of their leaders PR campaign to dissuade people from believing climate change which is under investigation for securities fraud? Or the good people who work for Wells Fargo whose leaders aided and abetted fraudulent acts on customers? Our security people need to do their job for America in spite of the lack of competence and veracity of our leader. Keith
