Russian President Vladimir Putin attends a meeting at Taj Exotic Hotel on Saturday, Oct. 15 in Benaulim, India.
The White House has asked the CIA to plan for a potential cyber strike on Russia,according to NBC News.
Unnamed intelligence officials told NBC News that the Obama administration has requested a range of possible options for such an attack, with the goal of humiliating the Russian government in response to its alleged meddling in the U.S. election.
The report is consistent with comments by Vice President Joe Biden on NBC’s “Meet The Press Daily” on Friday. “We’re sending a message” to Russian President Vladimir Putin and “it will be at the time of our choosing, and under the circumstances that will have the greatest impact,” Biden said on the show.
Russia vehemently condemned the NBC report and Biden’s remarks, which it called “unprecedented” threats from the U.S. 
The Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence have officially accused the Russian government of orchestrating a hack of the Democratic National Committee in an effort to influence the presidential election in November. Russia has also denied any involvement in the DNC email hacks.
The campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton also alleges that the Russian government is responsible for a more recent hack of campaign chairman John Podesta’s e-mails.
Top House Democrats called on the FBI on Friday to investigate the presidential campaign of GOP nominee Donald Trump for possible involvement in the breach.

Geert Mak Pleit Nu Voor Vriendschap met Rusland

Ik kwam zojuist mijn oude vriend, de bestseller-auteur en mainstream-opiniemaker Geert Mak in de regen op straat tegen. Na elkaar te hebben begroet, vertelde Geert mij dat hij van oordeel is dat Europa zo snel mogelijk met Rusland om de tafel moet gaan zitten, om de opgelopen spanningen te deëscaleren. De VS heeft heel andere belangen dan 'wij,' aldus Mak, die benadrukte dat de macht van 'onze' Atlantische bondgenoot ingrijpend aan het afnemen is. Kortom, ik hoorde wat ikzelf al enige jaren op mijn weblog schrijf. Opvallend hoe een Nederlandse opiniemaker binnen zo'n betrekkelijk korte tijd zo wezenlijk van oordeel kan veranderen.  Immers, Mak’s gevaarlijke anti-Rusland hetze was een treffend voorbeeld van zijn opportunisme. Mei 2014 beweerde op de Hilversumse televisie de zogeheten ‘chroniqueur van Amsterdam, Nederland, Europa en de VS,’ dat er sprake was van een 'Russische gevaar,’ aangezien ‘meneer Poetin’ aan ‘landjepik’ deed en dat de Russische president d…

Native American Rape Survivors

A sign marks the entrance to White Earth Indian Reservation in Mahnomen County, Minn. (J. Stephen Conn / CC 2.0) WHITE EARTH RESERVATION, Minn.—Candice (not her real name) awoke with a start. Someone was pulling down her sweatpants. It was a male friend. “Stop!” she shouted. He kept groping her. She kicked him and he fell off the bed. She dashed out of the bedroom, tripping and tumbling down the stairs. Gripped with fear, she heard his footsteps behind her in the dark and forced herself to stand upright as she staggered out to the porch. Candice was still intoxicated. She got into her car and drove into a ditch. A white police officer pulled up. She struggled to hold back tears as she told him about the attempted rape. All the officer saw was a drunk and disorderly Native American woman. He dismissed Candice’s report of sexual assault as a lie she had made up to avoid getting a DUI. He did not take her to the hospital for a forensic exam. The sexual assault was not recorded in his pol…
