Gmail was down for an astonishing 24 hours. It will, no doubt, cost Google a lot of money, as they have contractual obligations to their commercial customers which will incur penalties. The outage effected much of the world, and most intensely North America and the U.K. It started around when the U.S. election polls closed, and continued for the better part of a day. Now, I don’t know for certain the cause of this unprecedented outage, with its unlikely coincident timing, but I could venture a guess.
There are few candidates for anyone who could hack such an outcome. The best candidate would be Donald Trump’s good buddies in Moscow. Motive? Perhaps an unsubtle reminder to the world’s business interests that they should not interfere with Putin’s Puppet President. If that’s the case, we will never know it for sure, as silence would doubtless be a condition of compliance. No doubt we will all quickly learn that it was just the “fat man on a couch.” Whether this is the case or not, Putin is singing in the shower these days. He now knows that he can safely start restoring the old Communist empire. If he decides to, say, invade Estonia and annex it, he knows that his good buddy Donald will sabotage any resistance from Europe.
Meanwhile, Trump’s even better and closer buddies, the Neo-Nazi terrorists of Europe, are popping champagne corks and dancing. There are now fanatical racists and anti-semites in power in Washington as well as Moscow and various European capitals, and their influence is growing rapidly in South-East Asia. Europe’s Jews and Gypsies have few places to look for safety. Canada may be one of the few remaining havens of freedom.
Beijing stands to lose financially from Trump’s ascent, but it is power, not money that interests Beijing. They are already reaping the propaganda bonus. They are already loudly boasting that democracy has been discredited, that the U.S. is washed up, and that Communism will ultimately triumph.
Those Liberal values —- democracy and freedom — that Conservatives, Communists and Fascists all hate, are in full retreat. Soon they will be forced underground.
Well, you fucking American morons, you fucking Conservative traitors, you finally got what you wanted.
