    They allegedly spent $120 for fake info on social media. If you want to swim in that cesspool you're going to get covered with crap.

    What else? Please help.

    Two kids came to my door last night. One carrying a hammer, the other one carrying a sickle. They both said trick or treat. Case closed as far as I’m concerned. Lock him up! Lol

    That (Russian) strategy had been set within twenty-four hours of her concession speech. Robbie Mook and John Podesta assembled her communications team at the Brooklyn headquarters to engineer the case that the election wasn’t entirely on the up-and-up. For a couple of hours, with Shake Shack containers littering the room, they went over the script they would pitch to the press and the public. Already, Russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument. (Shattered)

    John Podestas and Robbie Mook invented the whole thing. No facts.

    CNN :hilarious:( oh the desperation is so funny)reported today that ads paid for by “Russians” on Facebook and Twitter reached 150 million Americans so they tainted the election.:lmao:

    There thinking is if you read an add on Twitter or Facebook you were swayed by it.
    Yet they don’t have a problem with twitter and Facebook taking the Russian money.
    Mark Zuckerberg is one of their clan why not blame him for allowing the adds?

    I think the better question is why did Russia interfere with our election process.

    The content...or ads,...or influence. ....can be measured individually. No one will ever admit they were swayed by any internet content flagged as Russian-bought. There is no “dial” to determine the effect of foreign based ads from the so-called Russian “troll farm” Internet Services ......

    I think.......as things proceed,.....and the amount of Russian meddling becomes apparent........people will start doubting, and the outrage at another country’s interference will intensify.

    If,......it can be proven that Russia spent sizable amounts of money,....and invested sizable amounts of time in doing this,.....then whoever “ordered” this done from Russia thought that the amount wasn’t wasted........based merely on the time and money spent.

    As the social media giants are testifying in Congress now.......they.......(maybe deliberately).........had no idea of the amount of Russian paid-for media on social networks. All they know is that they were cashing large amounts of rubles.


    Once the amount of money can be certified, then maybe we can start to quantify the affect. One thing is certain, though.......Pretty much everyone admits the Russians were.......meddling.

    That, in itself, should be considered an act of war........

    Maybe they got sick of the U.S. meddling in other Countries elections and dictating what government they should have ?

    The google/Facebook congressional interviews are revealing the Russians goal wasn't
    to elect President Trump but to cause divisions in America.

    I think your more intelligent than to beleive the people that run these social media giants who receive daily reports of everything and with everything they track through analytics had no knowledge of an uptick in political adds or who was buying them.

    One would think all the globalist scum among us would embrace the notion of foreign interests having a voice in our elections. And in fact they do.

    I’ll have to agree with you on that.

    And then the innocent “I must track down Injustice no matter what the political timing!” act.........

    Oh, well. Investigation unfolding. Let all the bad actors, no matter what political stripe, or how powerful..........get their just deserts.

    Really, Jeb Bush spent $120 million against Trump and got 3 delegates, but Russia can spend $120k and change everything. What a load of crap.
