GQ magazine: It’s your civic duty to ruin Thanksgiving by bringing up Trump

maga

I’m guessing this is meant as satire. Then again, with TDS-infected libtards, you never know.

Happy Thanksgiving!

From the author, Joe Berkowitz, at GQ: It’s late-November 2017, and you know what that means: Every man you’ve ever seen on TV for any reason has just been unmasked as a woman-hating sewer ghoul. Also, it’s time to ruin your Trump-supporting family’s Thanksgiving—for America!

Thanksgiving is a celebration of community and gratitude, where we reconvene in our nostalgia-drenched hometowns and perform time-honored traditions such as almost sleeping with your high school crush and going around the table to say what you’re most thankful for and where you were on 9/11. Last year’s Thanksgiving was a difficult time for most Americans—roughly 65.8 million of us. The election was still a fresh wound. Trump had begun assembling his Dr. Caligari cabinet of White House monsters, each one a direct fuck-you to some beloved ideal. There was the EPA chief who doesn’t believe in climate change, the labor secretary who opposed minimum wage increases, the flagrantly Islamophobic National Security Adviser who might just be a foreign agent, and at the helm of it all, a man who speaks almost exclusively in racist dog whistles and “locker room talk.” Thanksgiving was a cathartic vent sesh for liberals with like-minded families, and a painful twist of the knife for those without.

I was lucky, kind of. Both my family and my wife’s family were Hillary supporters. But we spent Thanksgiving 2016 at my parents’ house in Asheville, North Carolina—a city which, despite its Portlandia-esque sensibilities, was nestled in deep red territory. Walking around downtown, I saw more sentient MAGA hats in a few hours than I had in three long post-election weeks in New York. Right away, my dad informed me that some Trump supporter friends would be joining our Thanksgiving dinner. He assured me he’d politely asked them not to talk politics, and encouraged me to follow suit. I spent Thanksgiving dinner trying to guess which guests were the ones who voted for Trump, like the most embarrassing Agatha Christie mystery of all time. This armistice dinner went surprisingly smoothly, thanks to the politics ban and enough whiskey to ride out a prohibition crisis. It helped that these people were not my family. Whatever qualms I had with them outside of this holodeck simulation of a normal dinner would never come to a head, since we had no reason to be in regular contact. Also, Trump had not actually taken office yet.

Last year, Trump supporters could still make a case for impending change. Perhaps Donald would go through a molting phase, shedding his most intolerant and unstable parts like clumps of dead lizard skin. Instead, if anything, his reptilian hide got doused in nuclear waste and he has since Godzilla’d all over America’s purple mountain majesties. Anyone hoping for peace last Thanksgiving was rewarded with constant chaos, “very fine” Nazis marching in the streets, and a flame war with North Korea unfolding entirely over Twitter, which may or may not end in Armageddon.

This year, if you’re headed home to a household that still thinks a sex-offending game show host in rapid cognitive decline was the best choice for a president, it is your civic duty to filibuster Thanksgiving.

Trump has spent the entire year performing one long, clumsy touchdown dance atop the wreckage of America’s former norms and values. He turned the presidency into a haberdashery. He made nepotism a core hiring strategy. He attacked a civil rights leader during Martin Luther King Day. He politicized a Boy Scout jamboree. Any parents still riding the Trump Train at this point have thereby signaled that nothing is sacred. It is time to follow their example. They can’t stand idly by while President Deals tramples every other American tradition and yet somehow expect that Thanksgiving will be normal too. If every other moment of this year is going to be drastically out of whack, nobody should get to pretend that everything is normal for one meal just because that’s what the pilgrims would have done.

Here are a few suggestions for how to ruin Thanksgiving, arranged by ascending order of righteous fury:

Don’t show up. For some parents, your absence will speak louder than any sodden arguments over the density of pumpkin pie. If you can’t even look them in the eye, they’ll know you mean business. Besides, Friendsgiving rules.

Show up and be kind of an asshole. No hugs; only stiff, formal handshakes. During the football game, talk about police brutality nonstop. Take any opportunity to emphasize just how much Bruce Springsteen and the entire E Street band loathes Trump. Come out as an aspiring professional DJ.

Scorched Earth. Not even a handshake; just stare, disgustedly, at their outstretched arms. Build a wall out of mashed potatoes. During the football game, order 10 Papa John’s pizzas—the official foodstuff of the alt right—and use them as pie charts to demonstrate who benefits most from the GOP tax plan. Refuse to be alone in a room with your mom, citing the Mike Pence rule. Call your parents by a Donald Trump nickname of your choosing—perhaps Little Rocket Mom or Liddle’ Dad. Insist on setting a place for Robert Mueller, the way Jews do for Elijah on Passover. Wear a coal miner hat for solidarity. Punch a cornucopia right in the mouth.

Of course, this is about more than just spite—as satisfying as spite can be in these trying times. This is about potentially chipping away at the ~35 percent of un-budging Trump supporters. Sure, some of them are fully on board with every inexplicable decision, but others may be swayable. They are Fox News devotees who have simply internalized the message that all negative news about Trump is fake news. They know the president is unpopular, but they think his unpopularity is the strict province of haters and losers. It might be different when it’s their own child—who probably isn’t an Antifa supersoldier and who definitely doesn’t have loser genes—weighing in with cold hard facts. Having a son or daughter loathe everything you’ve become is easier long distance; it’s another thing when that kid is staring turkey-carving daggers at you from across the table.

Thanksgiving is a religious holiday to thank God, not another occasion for white guilt

Thanksgiving is one of the most beloved holidays in America.

But in the hands of “progressives,” public schools and the MSM, Thanksgiving has long become yet another occasion for white guilt. If you want an illustration, see my 2010 post, “Thanksgiving card from my liberal friend“.

But did you know that unlike other secular holidays like Labor Day or the Fourth of July, the Thanksgiving that you think is a secular holiday is actually a national holiday that is explicitly religious in nature?

As shown in the quotes below, Thanksgiving was instituted as a day to thank God for the many blessings He has bestowed on America.

In 1789, in his first year in office, President George Washington called for a day of Thanksgiving because —

“it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor.”

In 1815, President James Madison issued a proclamation for “a day of thanksgiving and of devout acknowledgments to Almighty God for His great goodness.” After Madison, however, Thanksgiving reverted to a regional celebration in New England for 48 years.

In a proclamation in the midst of the Civil War on October 3, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln made Thanksgiving an official national holiday. Here is the full text of his proclamation:

“The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God.

“In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union.

“Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle, or the ship; the axe had enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years, with large increase of freedom.

“No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.

“It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and voice by the whole American people. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to his tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union.

“In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

“Done at the city of Washington, this third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the independence of the United States the eighty-eighth.”

Last year, Americans undertook the most divisive presidential election in our lifetime, only to see the electoral divisiveness metastasize into an undeclared civil war of remitting viciousness, even death threats against a duly elected President and his supporters.

On this Thanksgiving, to echo the words of Lincoln at the conclusion of the Civil War, we,

with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union.”

We of the Fellowship of the Minds also take this occasion to thank all our readers and especially our regular commenters who contribute so much to this little blog with their intelligence and righteous outrage.

Psalm 100

A Psalm of Thanksgiving.

Shout joyfully to the Lord, all you lands;
serve the Lord, with gladness;
come before Him with joyful song.
Know that the Lord, is God,
He made us, we belong to Him,
we are His people, the flock He shepherds.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving,
His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him, bless His name;
good indeed is the Lord,
His mercy endures forever,
His faithfulness lasts through every generation.

God bless you, and may God bless America,

~Eowyn

President Trump is rapidly reshaping America’s judiciary ‘to end the progressive state as we know it’

A main reason why I voted for Donald John Trump last November 8th has to do with the courts — not just the Supreme Court, but also the circuit courts across America that wield profound influence over Americans’ lives. Whereas the Supreme Court hears about 80 cases a year, the 12 regional appeals courts get the final word on about 60,000 cases a year.

During last year’s presidential campaign, Trump promised to select conservative Supreme Court justices. Exit polls showed that court-focused voters helped deliver Trump’s victory.

True to his word, President Trump hasn’t been in office for even a year and he is already on the verge of putting more “originalist” (original intent of the Founders) conservatives in the circuit courts than any other President!

That’s because Trump was prepared and had a battle plan to reshape America’s judiciary, which he entrusted to an attorney named Donald F. McGahn II, who would become his White House counsel.

Charlie Savage reports for the New York Times, Nov. 11, 2017, that in the weeks before Trump was inaugurated, lawyers joining his administration gathered at a law firm near the Capitol, where McGahn filled a white board with a secret battle plan to fill the federal appeals courts with young and deeply conservative judges.

McGahn mapped out potential nominees and a strategy, according to two people familiar with the effort:

  • Start by filling vacancies on appeals courts with multiple openings and where Democratic senators up for re-election next year in states won by Trump — like Indiana, Michigan and Pennsylvania — could be pressured not to block Trump’s nominees.
  • Speed the nominees through confirmation.
  • Avoid clogging the Senate with too many nominees for the district courts, where legal philosophy is less crucial.

Trump began with an unusually large number of court vacancies:

  • 21 open appellate seats because after Republicans gained control of the Senate in 2015, they essentially shut down the confirmation process.
  • 6 additional appellate judgeships have opened since Trump’s inauguration.
  • Nearly half of the 150 active appeals court judges are eligible to take senior status — semiretirement that permits a successor’s appointment — or will soon reach that age.

As a result of GOP control over both houses of Congress, Trump is the first Republican president whose nominees can be confirmed by simple-majority votes. And every single one of Trump’s judges is vouched by the Federalist Society and other conservative groups.

Leonard A. Leo, the executive vice president of the Federalist Society and an informal adviser to President Trump on courts, said Trump had instructed his transition team to prioritize appointing conservative judges who would be “strong” and could resist “tremendous political and social pressure.” Leo said:

“What makes this a unique opportunity in modern history is the sheer number of vacancies, the number of potential vacancies because of the aging bench, and the existence of a president who really cares about this issue in his gut . . . and recognizes that he could be a president who could help restore the judiciary to its proper role.”

Nearly a year later, Trump’s battle plan is coming to fruition:

  • Republicans are systematically filling appellate seats they held open during Obama’s final two years in office with a particularly conservative group of judges with life tenure. Democrats — who in late 2013 abolished the ability of 41 lawmakers to block such nominees with a filibuster — have scant power to stop them.
  • Trump has already appointed eight appellate judges, the most this early in a presidency since Richard M. Nixon. Thanks to Republican control, the Senate Judiciary Committee has voted to send a 9th appellate nominee, deputy White House counsel Gregory Katsas, to the floor.

All of which prompted President Trump to say, “We will set records in terms of the number of judges. There has never been anything like what we’ve been able to do together with judges.” He added that many more nominees are in the pipeline.

Indeed, President Trump is poised to bring the conservative legal movement, which took shape in the 1980s in reaction to decades of liberal rulings on issues like the rights of criminal suspects and of women who want abortions, to a new peak of influence over American law and society.

Liberals are apoplectic:

  • Nan Aron, of the liberal Alliance for Justice, calls Trump’s nominees “extremists”.
  • Baher Azmy, Legal Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights legal advocacy group, whines “I think the goal is to end the progressive state as we know it.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa)

In all this, Trump has had help from the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman, Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa), in lowering impediments and keeping the confirmation assembly line moving by:

  • Scheduling three confirmation hearings for appellate nominees this year, as many as took place during all eight years of the Obama administration.
  • Holding hearings for four district judge nominees just this year, just three fewer than the seven district judge nominees during the eight Bush years.

There is a speculation in the Alternative Media that one reason why President Trump is working so quickly to put in place conservatives judges across America is to prepare for “The Storm” when those unprecedented number of sealed indictments are unsealed and arrests are made to finally bring long-time evil-doers like the Podesta brothers and we hope, Hillary the Cannibal Queen, to justice.

Keep praying for President Trump!

About The Q-anon Storm

The MSM, including DrudgeReport, is eerily silent while huge things are happening.

There are reports of assassination attempts on the President, of Saudi involvement in the las Vegas attack, of sealed indictments of powerful people, of unexpected people playing a pro-American role, of possible connections to a Rothschild, the possible exposure and toppling of the New World Order. And yet when we switch on the news, all we hear is crickets.

The following videos are an interesting presentation. There’s no way to know if the speculations being expressed will prove accurate, but they are food for thought.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Baby-butcher supporter Kristen Bell shilling for Whole Foods

Hollyweird libtard Kristen Bell is a big supporter of baby butchers Planned Parenthood. She is also very vocal about her disdain for President Trump. Bell is also a rabid anti-gunner. A glimpse at some of Bell’s tweets:

  • “The @NRA needs mental health care.” (In response to the Sandy Hook shootings.)
  • “Official diagnosis: This country is gun sick.” (In response to the Dallas Police shootings.)
  • A tweet Bell retweeted after the Orlando shootings: “My thoughts and prayers are with the Senators that voted down gun control. My thoughts: do your job. My prayer: you’re voted out of office.”
  • Another retweet of Bell’s: “Ladies, this election cycle you either vote with your vagina or your asshole.#HillaryClinton#DonaldTrump

She’s being paid (big bucks I assume) as the spokeswomyn for several companies:

She’s now speaking on behalf of another company, Whole Foods. On November 4, Whole Foods announced the following on their Facebook page:

Introducing our Holiday Host: Kristen Bell! Go behind-the-scenes and follow us all season long to learn how this vegetarian tackles the turkey for her family, plant-based sides, and so much more

From Whole Foods’ web page: Kristen offers several ideas for you including, holiday main course tips, tips for holiday baking, holiday party tips and a “survival guide for the holidays.”

Here’s a pro-tip for surviving the holidays: Pray your mother doesn’t abort you at Planned Parenthood.

Keep this in mind when deciding where to shop for groceries.

Is Trump going after Hillary and the Podestas with sealed indictments?

An indictment is a formal accusation that a person has committed a crime.

In the United States, an indictment typically is issued by a grand jury based upon a proposed charge, witnesses’ testimony and other evidence presented by the public prosecutor (District Attorney). In order to issue an indictment, the grand jury doesn’t make a determination of guilt, but only the probability that a crime was committed, that the accused person did it and that he/she should be tried. District Attorneys do not present a full case to the grand jury, but often only introduce key facts sufficient to show the probability that the accused committed a crime.

The substance of an indictment usually consists of a short and plain statement of where, when, and how the defendant allegedly committed the offense. Each offense usually is set out in a separate count. Indictments for complex crimes, particularly those involving conspiracy, may run to hundreds of pages.

Indictable offenses are normally tried by jury, unless the accused waives the right to a jury trial. Although the U.S. Constitution’s Sixth Amendment mandates the right to a jury trial in any criminal prosecution, the vast majority of criminal cases in the United States are resolved by the plea-bargaining process.

A sealed indictment is an indictment that stays non-public until it is unsealed. This can be done for a number of reasons. It may be unsealed, for example, once the named person is arrested, or has been notified by police or released pending trial. Until then, the indictment remains sealed: no person may disclose the indictment’s existence or the name of the indicted except as necessary to issue or execute a warrant or summons. (Sources: USLegal; Wikipedia)

Liz Crokin is an award-winning author and a free-lance investigative journalist who was a reporter for the Chicago Tribune, U.S. Weekly, and other publications.

In an interview on November 9, 2017, Crokin said that, at last count, there are at least 31-33 sealed indictments filed in recent days in D.C., which is highly significant and suggestive because “normally” the D.C. court has but 60 sealed indictments in an entire year.

Crokin said she — as well as others — had been told by sources that Tony Podesta is one of the defendants in the sealed indictments.

James Brower, a former state assistant for Trump in Massachusetts, is one of the “others”. He says in his latest tweet:

According to a PDF of criminal cases filed in U.S. District Court – District of Columbia in the period 11/5/2017 to 11/9/2017, 12 of the 18 criminal cases are sealed indictments. Their case numbers are 17-211, 17-822, 17-821, 17-823, 17-825, 17-826, 17-827, 17-828, 17-829, 17-831, 17-845, 17-846.

Below is a screenshot from the PDF, showing the differences between unsealed and sealed indictments — the sealed indictments are devoid of any information other than their case number.

Liz Crokin maintains that the proliferation of recently-filed sealed indictments at the D.C. district court indicates President Trump, through his appointed Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, is going after the Podestas and Hillary Clinton. Crokin writes that during the second presidential debate on the night of October 9, 2016:

Trump made a shocking promise to Clinton in the event he got elected. ‘If I win, I’m going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation…we’re going to have a special prosecutor,’ Trump said. Clinton responded, ‘It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.’ Trump then interrupted and said: ‘Because you’d be in jail.’ Trump’s statement was met with cheers and thunderous applause.

Trump’s famous ‘because you’d be in jail’ line is constantly rotated throughout the Internet via memes and videos on social media to this day; however, what many seem to have forgotten is the first part of Trump’s statement: he promised to assign a special prosecutor to look into Clinton’s crimes.

Fast forward to May 16, President Trump is now in the White House and meets with Robert Mueller. CNN reported that Trump interviewed him as a potential replacement for fired FBI Director James Comey. As Trump would say, ‘wrong!’ It’s not possible that Mueller could’ve been interviewing for the FBI director position because he already served in that capacity – under Presidents George W. Bush and briefly Barack Obama – and he exceeded the term limit allowed to work in that role. The term limit is ten years and Mueller served as FBI director for 12 years. Mueller got a special additional two-year extension from Obama that the Senate approved. The fake news totally got this wrong — to no one’s surprise.

So what was the meeting really about? I believe Trump was finalizing his decision to appoint Mueller as his special prosecutor to investigate Clinton. Don’t believe it? Keep reading.

The day after Mueller’s meeting with Trump, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller to serve as special counsel for the United States Department of Justice….

The Special Counsel is authorized to conduct an investigation including ‘any links and/or coordination between Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump, and any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.’

Trump did not collude with Russia. The left and the media have carried that narrative based off of lies and a fake dossier. Trump allowed them to carry their false narrative because he knew he was innocent and that the investigation would eventually turn to the real parties who colluded with Russia. Enter the Clintons. What stands out in the affidavit Rosenstein signed included ‘matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation’ because they knewan investigation into Russian collusion would eventually lead to Clinton.

See “The real U.S.-Russian conspiracy: Russia gave multi-million $ bribe to Clinton Foundation for 2010 uranium deal“.

Trump is a man of his word and he’s making good on all of his campaign promises, so why wouldn’t he keep this one? The left and the media has been so blinded by their partisanship that they’ve failed to see that the greatest bait and switch in the history of the world is going down right before their very eyes. They’ve naively assumed that since Mueller had been a part of the swamp, he’d protect the swamp. However, just because he’s associated with corrupt politicians like the Clintons for years does not mean that he likes them or has any interest in protecting them at this point. After all, the Clintons did go to Trump’s wedding and you know what they say: keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

So the investigation is steering straight for the real guilty actors and Tony Podesta is under the gun for The Podesta Group’s involvement with selling the country’s Uranium to Russia. This will lead to the indictments of his brother, John, Clinton’s former campaign manager, and, yes, Hillary too! Now if Mueller wasn’t going after Tony, why did he step down as CEO of his company last week? Multiple sources have confirmed to me Podesta is one of the 17 sealed indictments currently sitting in DC.

See “Rumor that Tony Podesta was indicted” and “Podesta Group CEO unexpectedly quits just days after Tony’s departure“.

Other guilty swamp creatures are catching on to the true nature of Mueller’s investigation. On Oct. 30, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a call for an independent investigation into Trump’s alleged campaign collusion with Russians just moments after Mueller unsealed indictments for campaign operatives Paul Manafort and Rick Gates. She’s also softened her tone from calling for Trump’s impeachment to now stating ‘impeaching Trump is not someplace we should go’.

Last week, top Democrats Elizabeth Warren and Donna Brazile threw Clinton under the bus by admitting she rigged the primary against Bernie Sanders. Why would they do this now? They’re distancing themselves from Clinton for a reason.

On Nov. 3, The Hillreported that Trump said that he’ll be proven innocent in the Russia election meddling investigation if special counsel Mueller treats ‘everything fairly’. ‘I hope he’s treating everything fairly and if he is I’m going to be very happy because when you talk about innocent, I am truly not involved in any form of collusion with Russia,’ Trump said on Sharyl Attkisson’s show Full Measure.

When Trump was asked if he’d consider firing Mueller, he responded by stating he was confident he’d be absolved of wrongdoing. If Mueller is so corrupt and intent on protecting the Clintons, like so many on both the right and the left believe, why isn’t Trump sweating? He alluded that he’s not even thinking about firing Mueller. Not only is Trump a man of his word, he’s rarely ever wrong and his instincts are killer. It also should be noted that Mueller is a decorated Marine who served in Vietnam and has received many medals including the Purple Heart.

Mueller was hired to investigate Clinton, period. If my theory proves to be correct, this will go down as one of the most brilliant sting operations in history.”

Video shows ISIS beheading is staged

We’re familiar with those gruesome videos from ISIS/Islamic State, showing an ISIS jihadist clad in black decapitating a victim.

There have been whispers that the videos were staged, i.e., fake.

Below is a video obtained by the hacktivist group CyberBerkut, which shows a clearly staged, i.e., fake, ISIS beheading, including the ISIS jihadist and his victim joking around.

CyberBerkut, founded around 2014, is a Ukrainian nationalist and pro-Russian group of anonymous hacktivists who, as described by Wikipedia, became known for a series of denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks on the pro-West (NATO and the U.S.) Ukrainian government, and on western and Ukrainian corporate websites.

Its name, CyberBerkut or Berkut online, is a reference to Berkut — a special police within Ukraine’s Ministry of Internal Affairs. After the 2014 Ukrainian revolution — in which the Obama State Department was covertly involved — the new pro-West Ukrainian government dissolved Berkut, blaming the special police for most of the nearly 100 civilian deaths. Berkut’s unit in Crimea, which broke away from Ukraine, defected to the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs and kept its old name.

Indeed, CyberBerkut’s emblem is almost identical to that of Berkut:

CyberBerkut’s activities include:

  • Attacks on NATO websites.
  • Attacks on U.S. private military companies.
  • Publication of correspondence with the United States Embassy in Ukraine and United States foundations (e.g., Clinton Foundation).

In July 2017, CyberBerkut published a batch of emails between Ukraine and Hillary Clinton/Clinton Foundation. One email in particular, dated January 8, 2017, i.e., after Hillary Clinton had lost the presidential election to Donald Trump, shows the Democrats plotting to manufacture the phony story that Russia had hacked the election. CyberBerkut says they were given the email by a whistleblower.

See “CyberBerkut publishes email of Democrat plot to blame Russia for hacking 2016 election“.
