"We have a Russian asset sitting in the Oval Office. … There is no fathomable explanation for why the president said these things. Letting Russia off the hook for bullying smaller countries and then blaming Obama for it? It's directly out of the Putin playbook." — former senior Justice Department official

”No question” that Trump is behaving like a “spy for the Russians. … The evidence is so overwhelming that in my 35 years in intelligence, I have never seen anything so certain." — Glenn Carle, former CIA covert operative

"I think what's going on right now is an Occam's razor scenario. Trump wants to do deals with Russia when he leaves the presidency. We already know he was interested in building a Trump Tower in Moscow before and during the election. The best way of doing a deal with Putin is to be nice to him, so I think what Trump is doing is currying favor." — Robert Deitz, former lawyer at the CIA and the National Security Agency

This is the evidence of Russian interference in American politics. 3,000,000 Russian Backed Tweets

This is the evidence of Russian interference in American politics.

Compiled and published by Professors Darren Linvill and Patrick Warren with FiveThirtyEight, these tweets are all from the Internet Research Agency – the so-called troll factory run by the Russian government to shape American politics. Search for tweets, hashtags, or dates that interest you, and see first-hand evidence of a Russian foreign influence operation.

The data they've released contains nearly 3 million tweets, posted by thousands of different accounts. Each record includes the author, the publication date, and some limited metadata about the language, location, and nature of the account.

Have we learned nothing from republican/media spin history? I saw this exact same show in 2004.

Now the show is Donald Trump, Deutsche Bank, and Lawrence O'Donnell in 2004 the show
was George W Bush going AWOL from the Texas Air National Guard, and Dan Rather. In both
cases the damaging story was true but certain powers got the media talking about what a
bad person the news caster/pundit is and not the underlying crime and then loudly calling
for the person's job.

Trump, "I'm an environmentalist." Then Trump demonstrates he knows nothing about the environment.

Trump was asked at a press conference whether he still denies the evidence of human-caused climate change and increasing global average temperatures. In response, he insisted, “I’m an environmentalist” and “I want the cleanest water on Earth, I want the cleanest air on Earth, and that’s what we’re doing.”

The Twitter accounts for ABC News Politics, ABC’s Sunday news talk show This Week, and CBS News simply repeated Trump’s claim. The Hill also included Trump’s claim that “I think I know more about the environment than most people” in one tweet, though at least it also mentioned that he skipped the climate change session at the summit of world leaders.

(Air and water pollution are local problems but climate change is a world wide problem. BTW "clean air" doesn't
have excess greenhouse gases such as CO2 & CH4 and clean water in the ocean isn't clean when when it is acidified
by global climate change. For an "environmentalist" Trump is clueless.)

Aren't Trump's MAGA hats made in China?

WASHINGTON/BEIJING—President Donald Trump on Aug. 23 said he has ordered American companies to exit China after Beijing unveiled retaliatory tariffs on $75 billion of U.S. goods, throwing a new twist into the bitter trade war between the world’s two largest economies.

The president was meeting with his trade team at midday, a senior White House official told Reuters.

“We don’t need China and, frankly, would be far better off without them. The vast amounts of money made and stolen by China from the United States, year after year, for decades, will and must STOP,” Trump tweeted.

“Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing your companies HOME and making your products in the USA.”

So if Epstein was using Trump's plane to move girls around? If that is true then Epstein ...

... absolutely had to die. Now did Trump/Barr use American mob hit men or Russian "pros" or
the Saudi Crown Prince squad?

The Koch Brothers Are Trying to Rig Our Elections (2014)

https://www.commoncause.org/democracy-wire/koch-brothers-are-trying-to-rig-elections/


Massive spending on election advertising is just one way the Koch brothers are seeking to influence U.S. elections. There’s disturbing new evidence that they’re also behind an effort to send targeted voter groups incorrect or misleading voting information through their flagship political organization, Americans for Prosperity (AFP).

snip

North Carolina is home to one of the most competitive Senate races in the nation this cycle, as incumbent Kay Hagen (D) faces state House Speaker Thom Tillis (R). The Koch family has maxed out on direct contributions to Tillis, and the Koch’s’ AFP and Freedom Partners have spent millions on ads in the race. In fact, outside spending in the North Carolina Senate race now exceeds $42 million, more than in any other contest.

And North Carolina isn’t the only state in which Americans for Prosperity has used the mail to misinform voters. According to the Institute for Southern Studies, similar mailers with incorrect or confusing voting information also have been distributed in Wisconsin, West Virginia, and Virginia by Americans for Prosperity in recent years.

“It’s outrageous what they do,” said Larry Haake, an election administrator in Chesterfield County, Virginia. “Most of their information is wrong. They know it’s wrong and they don’t care.” In West Virginia’s May primary this year, AFP sent out voter registration leaflets in eight counties that West Virginia Secretary of State Natalie Tennant called “misleading and confusing.” In Wisconsin, evidence suggests that AFP previously worked with the state Republican Party to send confusing information to minority and student voters.

snip

In North Carolina, AFP argued that the mailers contained just “a few administration errors,” ignoring the fact that the state Board of Elections reported receiving at least 2,000 calls and complaints about them. In West Virginia, AFP’s state director admitted that the mailers may have contained “a few mistakes.” It is unclear if any AFP chapter has sent corrected information to the voters who received their misleading mailers.

BTW Daddy Koch made his money developing Stalin's oil fields.

Trump, "she said ob-serd." Trump could not pronounce absurd. The man is crazy.
