I have yet to see anyone explain HOW Russia has helped Trump win in 2016. Not even any far-out theories...like mass mind control or anything.


That's because that is Fake News! Media and Democrats are using Communist tactics from Saul Alinsky to plant fake news on TV in order to suggest to people it took place when it didn't. Old Pravda trick too.

It's the facebooks bro......

I once read a post about how cats are better than dogs on the facebooks. I was immediately compelled to go out and buy 17 cats and punch a dog in the face.....

I just saw an ABC News segment. Social Media posts showing Blacks voting Republican 100 years ago are FAKE, and likely run by Russians! Twelve have been identified thus far.

ABC News, You FAIL.

The Good News: More Americans are wising up to these tactics.

The Bad News: Not enough of them are wising up. Not yet.

I refer you to an awesome site following Election Integrity.

bradblog.com...


Every Republican Senator present, with the exception of TN's Bob Corker, voted against an appropriations amendment to give $250 million for additional election security to states.

All Democrats voted in favor of the amendment, which received a majority 50-47 vote. But that wasn't enough to overcome the 60 vote filibuster threshold (which Republicans could have waived). That, on the same day the GOP-majority Senate easily approved a $717 billion defense authorization package --- in case you're wondering where their priorities really are.

Is it possible that the unprecedented scrutiny being applied to the 2018 mid-term elections will also identify Domestic Meddling and Cheating attempts at the local, regional, and state level?


I think so, Republicans make that a top priority usually. I'm glad to see that Trump is taking Russian meddling in the elections seriously. There is the possibility that Russia could hack our election machines this year.

Thanks for posting this, I read that, too. Republicans didn't seem to take election security seriously in that vote, and Trump usually doesn't seem to take Russian meddling seriously.

If you don't vote, its hard to meddle with it.

If you do vote, do you want someone knowing who you voted for?

Anyone remember Trump and the lesser Trump eyeing their wive's voting booths last election?

Pepperidge Farm remembers.

Do you think Voter ID will lead to a reduction in illegal voting more or less than it will increase vote rigging?

What would Q say?

election meddling is one of the biggest, most important issues for the left. All you need to do is read the news. So there should be an embracement of this new path from the opposition. They will likely oppose it, but at least then, you won't have to hear about Muh Russia again.

Very little cyber threat in election systems I've seen operational, voting platforms have NO network connection and admin polling staff use pc/vpn to access public voter registration DB. THE REAL THREAT IS OPERATIONAL.

County level training and procedure "superceed" State requirements by ignoring statutes. As a poll watcher I've seen folks brought en masse to polling stations by public chartered bus, handed voter registration cards on debarking, vote - and then taken to the next polling station to rinse & repeat.

Boots on the ground (eyes at the polls) are what's going to eliminate serious meddeling. The rest is optics.

I've always thought since I heard of Russians pushing Jill Stein's boomlet, in the last election, that they were trying to send things out of the electoral college, and back into the House. This week, a really weird green candidate messed up the Ohio Congressional Special Election, for the Democrat's candidate. If Russian hackers and lobbyists keep this up, they will only give Trump a larger majority in the next Congress. For me, this is the old, "cutting off your nose, to spite your face", truism.

On the good side, a passel of Greens, and Demo Socialists, robbing those DNC's approved candidates votes, will give the big boys, the heebie jeebies.

The only way to get serious about protecting the voting process would be to require registration for each voting cycle- every two years. Issue voter I D at the time of registration and for just that time. And use paper ballots which would be "read" by unconnected scanners and the vote totals phoned in. The infrastructure is available, so all it will take is doing. The up front costs will be minimal compared to the value of fair and honest election totals.

Oh, I can hear the crying from where I sit; but if elections are to be kept honest, both parties should be willing to give the "citizens" a proper way to voice their will. Any one who wants to vote can find a way in two years to get registered and get to the polls. Any one who does not want to vote will just continue doing nothing.

This will only make it harder on the dead folks to crawl out of their graves and vote.

This will also mean the politicians will have to mount "believable" campaigns in order to get elected. They may have to even work at it.
