Like every presidential election that liberals lose, years later we’re still hearing about how unfair it all was. Of course, the favorite complaint of liberals this time around is “Russia did it!” Even if you accept for the sake of argument that Russia wanted Trump to win and hacked John Podesta’s email (and neither of those assertions may be true), buying some inconsequential Facebook ads for both sides and revealing the contents of John Podesta’s emails (none of which turned into truly major stories) wasn’t exactly a game changer.
The communications show favoritism towards Hillary in the agents’ personal views, but also in how various aspects of the investigation should be conducted. They also reveal a rancid contempt towards Donald Trump as well as Americans who support him.
Ever wonder what color the sky is in the mainstream media’s world?
Two new reports released less than an hour apart from each other on Friday night appear to have identified the secret FBI informant that the bureau allegedly used to gather information about the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
We wuz robbed. That’s the theme Democrats and their media allies are working hard to cement into conventional wisdom. And robbed in a very specific way: The 2016 presidential election, we’re to believe, was stolen from Hillary Clinton by disparate treatment. As Democrats tell it, the FBI scandalized their candidate while protecting Donald Trump.
‘I think misogyny and sexism was part of that campaign’.
One of the biggest puzzles about our current predicament with fake news and the weaponisation of social media is why the folks who built this technology are so taken aback by what has happened.
In an interview with Mother Jones in downtown Manhattan, Clinton said Russian meddling in the election “was one of the major contributors to the outcome.” The Russians used “weaponized false information,” she said, in “a very successful disinformation campaign” that “wasn’t just influencing voters, it was determining the outcome.”
In the run-up to the 2016 presidential election and during the ensuing campaign the Democratic National Committee acted as a front group for the Hillary campaign, if not breaking laws certainly trampling on the spirit of the law in its unbridled pursuit of power.
A good synopsis of the DNC’s and Hillary’s manipulation of the political process.
The plot thickens is what many would say at the reports coming out in the last few days. The Russian meddling in the US election did not result in the usual suspects this week, but rather into quite a few San Francisco behemoths of tech.
The Democrats’ Trump/Russia collusion narrative took a major hit this week when Facebook leaks about Russia-linked ads forced disappointed Dems to walk back their anti-Trump messaging. Congressional leaders, in the meantime, have reportedly renewed their focus on Team Obama’s election-year political espionage.
The anti-Trumpers’ promising story-line — “Trump and Russia colluded on Facebook” — had to be downgraded to merely “Russia sought to create incivility and chaos” when it was discovered that the Russia-linked group in question promoted issues and groups on both sides of the political spectrum.
“We should be debating how many sanctions we should place on Russia, or whether we should blow up the KGB or GSU, GRU [Russia’s foreign military intelligence agency.],” He said. “We should be retaliating massively.”
A number of anchors and pundits on the two media outlets assumed that Trump wouldn’t raise the interference issue due to his somewhat cozy relationship with Putin. Analysts operated under the speculative assumption all day Friday.
Rhode Island Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea has found 150,000 people wrongly placed on the state’s voter rolls, The Providence Journal reported Wednesday.
She said she wouldn’t call it “fraud”. They were mostly “inaccuracies”.
