The Clinton campaign has taken a curious tack for one wanting to elect the next President of the United States:  Blame Russia for interfering with our national election claiming Russia would prefer to have an aggressive, unpredictable man for the United States President than a woman who has fumbled every diplomatic move she has ever made allowing Russia an advantage and path to return to world power status, single handedly!  Of these two, Russia would clearly see Hillary’s election as an opportunity generating outcome.  Be sure there are “Hillary” posters in the Kremlin.

In just one Hillary deal Russia gained control of 20% of all uranium produced in the US by making several million Dollar contributions through Canadian Uranium One, Inc. that sold out to the Russian Rostom SA after Uranium One, Inc. had control of 20% of all US uranium production. Mr. Trump has no uranium holdings in any nation.

Hillary’s contention Mr. Trump’s alleged deals and borrowings from Russian lenders makes Donald J. Trump a more attractive US President than she is do not add up.  In Hillary they have a useful “Patsy.”

That this is the reason Trump hesitates to release his tax returns wanting to keep any Russian deals confidential may seem logical to those ignorant of corporation taxes, but anyone who ever owning a corporation knows well accountants and tax attorneys tell you not to release anything under audit as the numbers change during IRS examinations and if there are any problems you do not want them to be exposed by an aggressively negative press before your day in US IRS tax court, which is notoriously shy of press.

The Washington Post has published a claim Russia hacked the Democrat National Committee using the aliases “Guccifer,” the Romanian computer hacker Marcel Lazăr Lehel, and “D.C. Leaks” both known European sources for Wikileaks further compounding and making less possible confirmation as these could be copycat covers used by people seriously anonymous.

Hillary’s folks contend the fakers of the fakers, “…had learned to use the language of Americans frustrated with Washington, DC.”  Where this seems “a long way round the horn,” isn’t more likely these are simply American hackers and not Russian imitators when the entire thesis is flawed where a known female fumbler would be preferable for Russian purposes than a man more likely to take actions they would not like or do them great harm?

That they are Russian hackers is claimed substantiated by Hillary’s statement “17 US intelligence agencies have confirmed Russia hacked the DNC,” when none have made any such claim and that we have 17 such agencies is likely an outing of several “black” operations the existence of which is a state secret.  Chalk up another fumble, Hillary!

Associated Press reported October 2015 that “Hillary Clinton’s private email server maintained in her home while serving as Secretary of State was hacked by Russia-tied authorities on five separate occasions.”  While we are not sure what “Russia-tied” reduces to and AP has long been an organization without a central authority, but an association; who is saying what?  The AP idea is that member publishers put stories on line for all.  From where did this statement come?  Who is responsible?   No associate claims authorship.

In her defense that did not happen it seems AP’s claim is predicated on their having detected “a Russian keyboard” in the programs left in said server for transmitting emails to Russian servers.  Two things are wrong with this as “Russian keyboards” are not distinct as they only produce binary codes like western keyboards so they are not detectable and what they see of the planted program is written in a computer language the codes of which were written in Silicon Valley, CA or Redman, Washington.

Nonetheless, the real “Guccifer” told FOX News he hacked Hillary’s home server along with ten other hackers so Hillary’s contention it was never hacked is not only ridiculous on its’ face, but refuted by testimony from people who did it.  The computer authorities of 170 nations would be able to see the traffic coming from our State Department and the first thing they would notice is this odd, unsecured address in upstate New York and be on it quicker than two possums on a June Bug.  Hillary’s server was the cyber punch-board of the big boys. She had more digital readers than a New York Times “Best Seller!”

Finally and most significantly, it seems counter-intuitive that Hillary would dare offend the world’s leading military power by making such accusations when she clearly has no hard evidence.  Even if she did is it still good form by the rules of diplomacy?  Is she so bereft of diplomatic skills that she   throws gasoline on the candelabra at her own dinner party?  Could she not say, “Apparently we were hacked by someone and while we are working on it we will just have to hope it was an American and not a foreign power as that would have severe implications an consequences.”  In other words, “Stay out of our business boys, or else…”  In this case Hillary put bullets in both feet with her inartful ways of handling foreign policy.

Adrian Vance

Trained as a science teacher, with eight years classroom experience, he has been writing professionally since the age of 15. He was the youngest person to be published in Journal of the Illinois Academy of Science at 17 as a result of a paper he wrote suggesting a revision in the science teaching curriculum. Publication was accidental as his teacher headed the selection committee and his paper was sent to the printer in error. Nonetheless, it received positive response. It proposed teaching General Science, then Physics followed by Chemistry with Biology in the senior year given the then new molecular focus in Biology.
During his college years he worked on the school newspaper, primarily as a photographer and did an occasional feature, some of which caused him to be called to the Dean’s office. “You don’t like the way we do things here?” was the usual opening remark followed by the expected suggestion.
After his third year, exhausted and without direction, he left for one year, but returned, when Sputnik and Admiral Rickover’s books documented a crisis in American education. He felt called to teach and completed a B.S. in Physical Science at Illinois State University with a major in chemistry, minor in biology, near minors physics and education. He did graduate work in both Illinois and California completing a California Life Diploma teaching credential in 1962.
While teaching he saw many needs and opportunities in educational publishing so he wrote and produced educational materials, primarily filmstrips and sound recordings. He also wrote for photographic magazines as film work put him in touch with many photographic and production problems. He has 325 screen credits in educational, industrial film and filmstrip as a writer-producer. In 1976 he won the Learning Magazine “Best of the Year” award for his “You in the Universe” filmstrip series and the New York Film and Television Festival Silver Medal for “An Introduction to Cells” filmstrip series.
For a partial database of Adrian’s publications please click on and you will see them listed by series title and publisher. Each series title included four to 30 filmstrips and all are not fully listed in this database. The grand total is over 800.
Over that 30 years Mr. Vance also wrote other material: two books, published in New York: “UFO’s: The Eye and the Camera” for Barlenmir House and “Audiovisual Production” for Amphoto Books. He wrote and illustrated over 100 features and columns for photography magazines. He was a Founding Contributing Editor for Peterson’s PhotoGraphic Magazine and the West Coast Editor of Popular Photography from 1974 to 1978, writing a monthly column for the magazine. As a result of underwater photography work he contributed to SKIN DIVER magazine in the 70’s. His “Timing Waves to Enter The Sea” article, first appearing in SKIN DIVER, is now a chapter in a classified U.S. Navy Seals training manual.
“UFO’s, The Eye and the Camera” documents his “Two channel information theory for the analysis of events simultaneously seen and photographed.” It is the first comparative analysis of vision and photography written with the idea of combining information from both sources into a single analysis that can be used scientifically and forensically.
Mr. Vance is also credited with solving the mystery of how complete maps of Earth were drawn in antiquity and he rediscovered Captain Cook’s secret method of locating Pacific islands so well their positions have only recently been improved. He is cited with discovering the method in the seventh edition of “The Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings,” by Dr. Charles Hapgood and he later contributed to a definitive article on cartography in antiquity for The Smithsonian Magazine as they confirmed his method.
On February 19, 1976 Mr. Vance got a “Certificate of Appreciation” award from the Los Angeles Police Department “in grateful recognition of his generosity in make available to officers of this Department the talents and training of his German Shepherd, Boris. The ready willingness of Mr. Adrian Vance to become involved and to make available his valuable dog in a potentially hazardous situation deserves the gratitude and approbation of the entire Los Angeles Police Department.” This incident was critical to the LAPD administration’s realization that trained dogs could be of value in police work and they are now employed by the LAPD.
When the computer replaced film the school market audio-visual field he switched horses at full gallop and produced 460 computer educational disk systems for the Apple II computer over 15 years. During that time he became a professional broadcaster in the 90’s to promote the State Water bond issue in Santa Barbara, California as he felt it was critical for the town. He was publicly credited for having been one of the top ten reasons the measure passed thanks to his book “Drought in Paradise” and radio work.
The collapse of his software business when Apple Computer discontinued the “II” machine line in 1995 crystallized the failure of his second marriage. With no clear direction in the school market supplemental materials field he sought a career in broadcasting in Las Vegas, Nevada doing shows on both KDWN and KXNT. This was unsatisfying due to the “star” economics of commercial radio where a few performers make millions and everyone else starves.
Mr. Vance has also been a day trader, strategist, system developer and author on the equities markets and trading. He now trades stock, land and develops residential property. His website and trading information service, “The Stock Surfer” was a leading Internet service for seven years. He has been developing “The Young Americans” series of Young Adult novels promoting conservative values as well as his personal memoir, “A Long Way From Normal.” You can buy Adrian Vance’ books or downloads at
December 21, 2010 he was awarded US. Patent 7,855,061 for his “Fuel Farm” that makes a gasoline equivalent 100 Octane fuel, butanol, from CO2, water and sunlight with algae and bacteria. You can see the full disclosure websites regarding his inventions at: and
