I don't care anymore. I didn't fall for any of it. The country is going to burn our prosperity away with wars and bombs anyway. We allow those people in the middle east or levant play us like kindergartners. Blow themselves up and scream for US to help.


I heard Wolfowitz interviewed on the radio the other day.

I didn't know who it was until the end. Talk about a War Monger.

Anyway, would love to hear what the Russian hacker has to say.

Yeah, if Trump ordered the airstrikes solely to throw people off the scent of his Russian dealings, he needs imprisonment.

As it stands today, right this minute: i say imprison all 537, pending interrogation.

What is a legal source exactly ?


Does the guys wife count?



But over the weekend Levashov’s wife told the Russian state-owned broadcaster Russia Today that her husband’s arrest was due to his involvement in a “computer virus” which was “linked to Trump’s win.”

My issue with the airstrike is that they were flying missions out of that base again in 24 hours, actually bombed the city again that was recovering from the Sarin gas attack...and the Pentagon used "Deconfliction-Channels" to warn Russia (and thus Assad) with plenty of notice before the strike.

And from everything I can find, they did not target runways, but only a few building and bunkers.

I sure as crap know our military planners are not incompetent...The strike was reportedly the bottom of the options list in "impact"...

Whether Trump did it for distraction purposes (not sure)...but it sure as hell was symbolic messaging at best vs. an actual military strike.

He has been involved in all kinds of big hacks and reportedly has worked with Russian FSB since 2012.

He has a long list of crimes he is wanted for in the US...It will be interesting if the FBI extradites him...

He doesn't look to be directly associated with the election hacks, but he is a kingpin in the hacking world...and has worked for FSB.

Targeting bunkers bolsters my private theory that they were blowing up stuff that was ours and would be embarassing if found.

That's an interesting idea. Would this targeting be the result of a pentagon coverup?

Well...Syria is essentially The Pentagon vs the CIA, right? CIA backs the rebels, Pentagon backs Assad? Thats what LA Times says, anyway:

In Syria, militias armed by the Pentagon fight those armed by the CIA

Its a complete mess. When shots are fired, people don't know who they are even really shooting at. The US just made an international showing of support for ISIS by attacking Assad. Their country is in the midst of civil war, and we chose to lob missiles from the peanut gallery?

That is either incredibly stupid, or meant to achieve ulterior motives.

If they are claiming that a virus changed votes that's a lie. Most of the votes are paper votes and are counted by machines that are not connected to the internet.
I say this is a created story not based in truth.


We both agree on this. HAcking paper ballots lol.

I guess so.

Correct me if I am wrong but I thought RT was not a trustworthy source?

Its not. RT made that report of a SU-25 shooting down a airliner. Which the Airplane was not even able to reach that high to begin with(according to its manufacturer no less) So extreme vetting is required to their stories.

No one is claiming any votes were changed.
The hacking was of the DNC email servers and the dissemination of the contents in a constant flood. It was the creation of fake news about Hillary's ethics or Hillary's health. It was the deluge of lies presented as fact in social media outlets.
It was a calculated campaign to make Hillary undesirable as a leader.

Thank the Powers Above.


hmm...republicans control the entire federal government and 31 states. they are THE ONLY POWER I see right now.....let's face it, the wealthy are now truly in charge, only caring about less regulations and their own tax cuts.

The wealthy have always been in charge re: Rothschilds
Democrat Republican doesnt matter
"Give me control of a nation's money , and I care not who is in charge"

I did not need any campaign. HRC was undesirable long time ago. At least from her speech to CFR as secretary of state.

But all of this is now irrelevant, because Syria is bombed.

The "fake news" nonsense the Trump campaign started is beginning to do a lot of damage.


Um what?

The "fake news" nonsense was created by the Hillary campaign and the left-wing media! Trump just ran with it and used it against her, and it backfired in Hillary's and the media's face.

Are you trying to rewrite history?

This thread has gone completely off topic.
I'm going to see what more I can find on this spammer guy and why the FBI thinks he's connected to trumps collusion with the Russian hackers.
Or that he's not.

If that is the case I don't think Trump should step down. He is not responsible for computer hacks, domestic or foreign. It would be the responsibility of the IC who failed to protect the US election. It would be the heads of the IC who would be forced to step down.

DNC didn't have a dedicated email server. All DNC staff had unprotected public gmail accounts. The ones even kids can hack.

That's right. Voting machines are not connected to the internet. No virus can hack them. They are specifically designed this way.

Well they're not all specifically designed that way. There are many different types of vote tallying machines. Many jurisdictions use the same old machines from a decade ago. Some of the new ones are electronically submitted and are connected to the internet.
There are not a lot yet but there are some.
I think they either need to come up with a way to protect those or all switch to the paper and pen ballots that leave no hanging chads or risk hacking or manipulation and ensure a hard copy of every vote cast so that discrepancies can be settled should they arise.
And are counted by a scanner not a person.
