Also, Trump seems to be trying to sideline the Magnitsky Act.

Russian politician says on live TV that Russia stole U.S. presidency

Well damn, not even trying to hide it. Gonna post in the Trump thread as well since this one gets less traction and that's pretty big news.

Stole the election or not, it's not Russia's fault we have so many gullable masses who believe in reactionary pieces, near-tribal political loyalty, and don't have the ability to critically think about what's important.

That's a reflection of our own fickle populace.

Very smart people always knew the masses can be easily manipulated.

The only question is manipulated for what purpose.

The Daily Beast - Exclusive: Russians Impersonated Real American Muslims to Stir Chaos on Facebook and Instagram

Quote:
The Facebook group United Muslims of America was neither united, Muslim, nor American.
Instead, sources familiar with the group tell The Daily Beast, it was an imposter account on the world’s largest social network that’s been traced back to the Russian government.

Using the account as a front to reach American Muslims and their allies, the Russians pushed memes that claimed Hillary Clinton admitted the U.S. “created, funded and armed” al-Qaeda and the so-called Islamic State; claimed that John McCain was ISIS’ true founder; whitewashed blood-drenched dictator Moammar Gadhafi and praised him for not having a “Rothschild-owned central bank”; and falsely alleged Osama bin Laden was a “CIA agent.”

Sources confirmed that the imposter account bought Facebook advertisements to reach its target audience. It promoted political rallies aimed at Muslim audiences. And it used the Twitter account “muslims_in_usa” and the Instagram account “muslim_voice” to pass along inflammatory memes under cover of the UMA. The Twitter account has been suspended, and the account on Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, was shuttered at around the same time as the Facebook page.

The Kremlin-backed trolls did all this while simultaneously using other accounts to hawk virulently Islamophobic messages to right-wing audiences on Facebook, such as an August 2016 Twin Falls, Idaho rally demanding, “We must stop taking in Muslim refugees!” Taken together, the newest revelation of Russian propaganda on Facebook shows the sophistication of the Russian “active measures” campaign to influence the U.S. voting public.

So the Soviet Union wasn't a global threat?

Also, no one is saying everyone who voted for Trump is a Russian agent but many are passively or actively helping Putin.

What's even funnier is absolutely nobody is making the strawman argument MR posted. We have mountains of evidence including the US Government acknowledging Russia interfered with the election.

Everyone that voted in our election were US citizens, many of who were voters that based their vote for Trump on faulty info aka "fake news" orchestrated masterfully by Russia through SEO and great use of social media.

This is why the GOP has the lowest approval rating in their history and Trump is gunning for lowest approval of a sitting president ever.

But sure, let's just go along with everyone who doesn't support Hillary is a secret Russian double agent because that makes tons of sense.

Except the intelligence community never said there were WMDs in Iraq; Bush's administration claimed that their reports did.

This is way bigger than Hillary Clinton. Geezus. Russia is messing with everyone else. And they're still doing it long after Hillary Clinton is gone or irrelevant in the other countries that they're tampering with.

Reuters - Russian hacker wanted by U.S. tells court he worked for Putin's party

Quote:
MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Russian hacker arrested in Spain on a U.S. warrant said on Thursday he previously worked for President Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party and feared he would be tortured and killed if extradited, RIA news agency reported.

Peter Levashov was arrested while on holiday in Barcelona in April. U.S. prosecutors later charged him with hacking offences, accusing him of operating a network of tens of thousands of infected computers used by cyber criminals.

...

He told a court in Madrid on Thursday that he had worked for the United Russia party for the last 10 years.

“I collected different information about opposition parties and delivered it to the necessary people at the necessary time,” RIA quoted him as saying.

Did you have a stroke while typing out this nonsense? I'm not even going bother quoting the other 2 posts because they are about the same level of coherence.

Stroke would explain your grasp on the political process too, so maybe you should just stick with that as you clearly are not fit to swim in the deep end with the adults on political topics.

How sad is it that Russia understands American politics better than most Americans. They absolutely played the right. A few anti-Muslim posts, and fake Muslim accounts to stir the pot. Some anti-Hillary, "lock her up" accounts. Helping a republican candidate at this point in time, when republicans are in party over country mode. Hell, they even organized various events, including white nationalist rallies, all while setting at some desk in Russia.

Even now, with all the evidence, with most of our government saying, "yes Russia DID interfere". We still see " nothing burger, hoax" comments purely because Trump calls it a hoax. Some republicans have even come out saying somethings there (it took them forever), but because Trump still says it's fake...it's fake...

My other worry is history will repeat. It took the Trump administration all this time to finally tell 20 something states that they were indeed messed with by Russia. They apparently had the info on which specific states were hit, for months. I'm sure they probably have more info, but haven't released it as it goes against Trump's fake news narrative.

If they would give the info out sooner than later, and all relevant parts, we could strengthen our security for mid terms. Yet, again, doing so means Trump has to admit the Russian stuff isn't a hoax. So he's putting his own personal best interest above country.

The Washington Post - Russians took a page from corporate America by using Facebook tool to ID and influence voters

Quote:
SAN FRANCISCO — Russian operatives set up an array of misleading Web sites and social media pages to identify American voters susceptible to propaganda, then used a powerful Facebook tool to repeatedly send them messages designed to influence their political behavior, say people familiar with the investigation into foreign meddling in the U.S. election.

The tactic resembles what American businesses and political campaigns have been doing in recent years to deliver messages to potentially interested people online. The Russians exploited this system by creating English-language sites and Facebook pages that closely mimicked those created by U.S. political activists.

The Web sites and Facebook pages displayed ads or other messages focused on such hot-button issues as illegal immigration, African American political activism and the rising prominence of Muslims in the United States. The Russian operatives then used a Facebook “retargeting” tool, called Custom Audiences, to send specific ads and messages to voters who had visited those sites, say people familiar with the investigation who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share details from an ongoing investigation.
