Russia's goal was to divide us, well it worked we are certainly divided. Unless we can come back together despite or differing political opinions , we are living in the last days of the USA.


China is a much bigger threat than Russians.

They are making back doors in the technology we buy from them, they are huge investors in Hollywood and manipulate politics through illegal donations.

The lesson wrapped with a popular “deepfake” — highly realistic manipulated video or audio — of Barack Obama to highlight the challenges of the information war ahead.



I almost believed it until this lept out at me. Do I pass the critical thinking thing?

Project much?

Lol!

The only threat to this nation now is the propaganda arm of the deep state. Alternative media is saving the world. Hope you're prepared for your reeducation. It won't be brought to you by CNN. The time draws near.

I have been thinking about it.

Russia is behind our division. Russia gave Clinton the anti-Trump dossier. Clinton called half the country deplorables.

The only logical conclusion is Clinton was a Russian plant.

Oh of course. Russia is not the problem, they are a PART of the problem. It's just rich coming from CNN, kind of like Ted Bundy complaining about another murderer.



I agree. However we are the murder weapon here if we are honest.

Or that Russia is like steroids and the competitors will do anything to have a small edge.

As I see it, the only threat to our democracy/republic is the communism/socialism and the racial and sexual division promoted by the Democrats and the likes of CNN and MSNBC.

If our fellow country members are too stupid to identify truth from reality no matter the source then we are doomed.

It's why the founding father's did not let everyone vote. The average mob member simply is too easily influenced by fake news. I agree, we have only ourselves to blame.

My post was a joke. It's true though, both Clinton and Trump campaigns were open to Russian intel. The one thing I will point out is that Clinton campaign did not care if it was true. We do not know what the Trump campaign would have done with fake intel.

Oh no, not the Russians. Maybe the Fins can teach us to not be stupid and believe everything we see on the TV. What a load of crap.

In my mind just being receptive to the hand out is the moral judgement for them on my part. No need to ponder on speculation.

Really it was Russia who created the 2 branch corporate party that everyone is insanely infected with? It was Russia who surrounded themselves with Nato Missiles? Was it Russia who told us to f off after the Soviet Union crashed and we wanted to make them a fiat nation? Was it Russia who came in and destroyed the Obummer funded Isil that was wreaking havoc in the ME? Was it Russia who tried to install the Nazi created Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt? Was is Russia who claimed there was weapons of Mass destruction in Iraq? Was it Russia who left our consulate woofully unguarded in Libya? Was it Russia who overthru Libya? Was it Russia who brainwashed everyone to hate them again even tho they are no longer a communist country?

Ugh, so you waste thread space to essentially say, "The internet is scary and fake, therefore please vet all your information and please, don't be like me, the OP, and fall for fake news as I have for the last several years because Orange Man Bad."

I'm glad you finally lightened up and learned the tangled web of pushing fake news to a statistical portion of ignorant people.

I'm ninety nine percent Finn, My dad taught me when I was young not to believe half of what you hear and a quarter of what you see. With modern Technology, more deception is in our country than ever before here in the USA, and most of the deception is home brewed.

It's an interesting question. A candidate running for PoTUS has murdered people. Russia publicly says they have evidence of that murder. Should that information be ignored, because Russia?

Absolutley. The evidence should be given to the proper investigative channels. It's too easy to fake anything today. By the time the truth came out the damage would be done.

The other reason is what is Russia's reason for giving this information to a campaign instead of federal investigators? Probably to alter the outcome or to sow discontent.

Except the "proper" investigative channels were compromised toward supporting the democrat party, and they mostly still are, especially in the field.
