However, consider this late bit of news.
The Democratic National Committee was hacked by two groups named "Cozy Bear" and "Fancy Bear." These hackers are alleged to have ties with Russian intelligence, which Russia denies. They were looking for DNC opposition research on Donald Trump.
As a Bear currently living in Moscow and enjoying access to the highest levels of the Russian government, the Bear states that it is quite impossible for Russia to be involved.
"But how would you know that, Bear?" you ask.
You may remember that back in May, the Bear was abducted by Turkish agents and held in an Istanbul zoo, scheduled for execution. (Another state -- very small -- was involved, the Bear believes, but he does not have sufficient proof yet to name names.)
The odious "Bunny Rabbit" hacked this ephemeris from a static I.P. address assigned to the Vatican. Now think. Who was it that hacked the hackers and put Bunny Rabbit out of business?

Cozy Bear. Fancy Bear. B34R. Russia. Things that make you go hmmm.
Why would Russia go to so much trouble to rescue the Bear?
The Bear has no idea. Everyone knows Russia loves Bears. The Bear was able to get Morse code and shortwave radio messages off in the clear. It is probably all a big coincidence that has nothing to do with Russian tensions with Turkey or the Bear's long-standing ties with Russia, and shadowy connection with every significant event in 20th century Russian history.
Of course, the Bear could have made it all up, and just made a lucky guess about the "Bear Group" of hackers with supposed ties to Russian intelligence. That's probably it. After all, if the Bear did know, do you think he would be blabbing? Unless someone wanted him to for some reason.
However, Russia was not involved in the hacking. Do not believe lies from the American press. Believe the Bear.
In an unrelated matter, the Bear is endorsing Donald Trump for President in 2016.
