and, those here on ats who don't think it's necessary to take some steps to protect our voting polls - very telling. they'd rather protect putin or they know they can't win without the help... who knows, but it's 100% weak. lol



Just asking, what makes you so certain that nothing is being done? Is the administration required to keep you updated on every single issue they are dealing with? I can say with just as much certainty as you that they are taking steps to strengthen security at the polls, they're just not pandering to the left's hissy fits. I'm sure there will be more protections in place next time, but newsflash you're still going to lose.

yes, I think those that attack our democracy are enemies. lol do you?

and, yes, because russia has succeeded in penetrating some voting systems i think they should be treated appropriately. BUT, MORE IMPORTANTLY i think we should set up safeguards to protect our voting systems, do you? and if not, why?

When did Russia penetrate voting systems. I remember the IC released info saying California, where I live, was compromised but our SOS called it fake news. Californias SOS called the IC fake news.

But I agree with you that we should safeguard our election and I think the first step in doing that is voter ID laws.

Let's deal with what's going on now.


Says the person posting in a thread about a future event that has not yet occurred but apparently 'The Russians' will have caused another upset if your candidate loses. If your candidate wins then Russia did not meddle/have influence in the election.

Pretty sure that sums up your thought-process on this or any other matter pertaining to Trump..


Except its pretty clear from the current administrations prerogatives that there are many Republican's 'on team Putin', judging by the easing of sanctions as the most recent example (not to mention the plethora of shading meetings/dealings for which several have been fired/eliminated over). I think its fair to say Russia has and will be attempting to hack/thwart/deviate our future elections as much as possible, but its disingenuous to think that Russia feels Democratic leadership is as advantageous to Putin's prerogatives as Republicans. I'm sure the Russians are clever enough to play both angles as much as possible, so regardless if a D or R wins, it is and should be imperative to put a serious effort to combating their influence if for no other reason than we want to maintain our own sovereignty. Whether the US has done similar actions (or is still enacting them) is irrelevant.

Isn't it funny how the ones screaming for increased safeguards are the same ones fighting tooth and nail against voter I.D.?

I think this may be the least substantiative post I've read today. Congrats, you've won the 'waste everyone's time' award. Have a cookie.

Bloviating as if you've got a direct line and insight into Trump's administration just makes you look crazy.

Frankly I like the idea that a cheap Russian troll farm sending tweets beat a 1.4 billion dollar political campaign, no matter how implausible such a theory is. We should let them continue their little fantasies just for the #s and giggles.

I never said I did. I said I had just as much insight as the hyperventilating left - "I can say with just as much certainty as you." Oh, and I'll bloviate if I want to

Everybody including us is interfering with everyone elses election. Yes security is important but for more reasons than just the Russians. This whole emphasis on the Russians is entirely politically motivated. If we dug deep could find more than just the Russians not to mention unearthing our own skeletons.

Wouldn't stopping foreigners from voting be the first step in stopping foreign meddling?

Sure, and I suppose disenfranchising 5% of low income voters is a worthwhile trade off for that (especially considering that 5% likely would vote against your candidate)....

Everybody lets Bob Mueller off the hook. His top priority was to investigate and report on HOW Russians interfered in our 2016 election. Instead, he went hunting witches (and still is), at taxpayer expense.

Its a shame that crooked Democrat Rosenstein gave him such a broad range to act under....


Oh wait....

Ok, I get it. We want to put a stop to Russian cyber meddling but we don't want to impede Mexican meddling at the actual polls. Got it

It's awfully elitist of you to think that low income citizens would have a problem with proving it.

It's also too bad that Mueller turned out to be unworthy of the leeway that Rosenstein gave him. And that Sessions "quit" so easily, and...blah blah.

But the bottom line is, we've had an ongoing investigation into how Russians influenced our elections since last May. What did the Intelligence chiefs say yesterday about Mueller's progress...or about Mueller at all?
