Just regurgitating the hokum from the Post. Bezos and Trump have been at war for ages now.

 

'In 2013, the newspaper was purchased by Jeff Bezos for $250 million in cash. The newspaper is owned by Nash Holdings LLC, a holding company Bezos created for the acquisition.'

Iirc the cases he’s bringing against these states won’t go to the Federal Supreme Court but those states Supreme Court. The most that would happen from that is perhaps a recount, as it’s complete fuck

Worth noting that the likes of George Floyd won't show up on that graph, he wasn't shot to death by police, he was suffocated by them and he isn't the only one. There's a reason "I can't breathe" has

They are simultaneously too ineffective to stop Trump when he succeeds and too powerful to overcome whenever he fails to deliver. Just like "antifa", which are both a terrifying scourge that law enfor

Craig Murray is a fantasist who was barred by the SNP from standing for "personality" reasons. He then claimed it was because he refused to vote with the SNP in backing the bedroom tax. I know several people who have gone through exactly the same vetting and this is not something that was asked.

Should also be noted that I was led to the post by wikileaks tweeting a link.

 

You can read different things into them doing that, but to me it seems that they're standing by their non-russian source claim and disseminating the author's claim that he has knowledge of the source.

 

It would be a remarkable position to take if you had any doubts whatsoever about who the CIA might be close to exposing as a source with ties to Russia.

Common sense says they were involved, decades of KGB interference says they were involved, Fancy Bears says they were involved, the 1000 plus propaganda force deployed on western website operating out of St Petersburg says they were involved, The Trump campaigns troubling and deeply compromised relationship with Russia says they were involved, the CIA and the DNC say they were involved. Literally everything that is happening in Syria shows just one example of the extraordinary importance of Trump's win for Russia, a win in a 2 horse race in a country that has defined itself in soft or hard opposition to Russian imperial ambition for decades.

 

But no, some bloke off Wikileaks says so that's that :lol: We are all biased no matter what we think.

Obama to Romney in 2012 “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because…the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”

 

Why is Trumps relationship with Russia more troubling than Obama's appeasement?

 

 

But aside from tit for tat, these say, they say, the FBI say etc. The questions to be answered are ..

That's got nothing to do with the subject under discussion as far as I can tell. Which is Russian interference. If true, Russian hacking and interference in an election for a candidate who has extensive links to Russian business interests is more troubling than a 'rapprochement' under Obama. But that's not the point.

Evidence? More than happy to concede if there is some... :lol:

 

''At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One.

 

Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.''

 
I'm confused I thought it was da Clintahns that were loving it Russian.
 
Trump is gonna take a chainsaw to the CIA (if they don't shoot him first).

This 3 year old podcast about the US interference in the the Russian sphere (deciding the Ukrainian leader) stuck in my mind at the time. Well worth a listen for the warning about how these things escalate.

Best to start at 8 minutes to avoid pre-amble. But a prescient warning that what's good for the goose...

No idea if what you two posted was meant to argue against Russian interference. Am fine if the answer is yes because the US interfered in theirs. Am not fine with the 'the Clintons had strategic engagement with Russia' so somehow it's fine for the US and the world to be manipulated by Russian hackers and propagandists.

The things that narks me is that all of this is set against a carefully spun narrative from Russia on US aggression in Ukraine and Syria. A message that has incidentally massive support amongst people who follow David Icke and the like, the alternative thinkers, the conspiracists, who have been targeted by Russia in the only part of their war which is truly 'soft'. The rest of it is hard as nails and they have used the split in the West's thinking on the West's own policy to undermine support and have ruthlessly and deliberately exploited the lack of trust in the US and the West since Iraq.

 

Ukraine was a CIA plot, Crimea just a democratic eventuality, in the story of soft Russian power in the face of US aggression? Same story holds in Syria, for everyone. They have identified the lack of trust and doing everything they can to exploit. English written Facebook memes decrying US aggression come from Russia via RT and multiple other affiliate websites.

 

The truth? Well if the US started the fight in the Maidan, if the US caused the bloodshed in Syria, they are in the work and Russia was right, right? So Trump is on the side of good, doing what's right for the world, fucking over the CIA? Yeah!!!

 

Wrong and if you don't see the importance of Tillerson you are missing the victory that Putin is now celebrating. It should also tell you that everything you read on Syria is full of shit too, as a bunch of Russian (and now US!) Oilmen, leading the politics strategy in the Middle East aren't somehow miraculously going to be doing things for peace.

 

That would be taking the naivety of the counter narrative suckers to extremes.
