Did you actually read Friday's Newsweek article ? Please read. It is more than this election!!

This article is actually beyond just election.

It details how Russians have been working on rigging this election for quite sometime.

One, most ironic sentence was that Clinton's controversial private server actually prevented Russian hacking!!

It details how so many Trump talking points come directly from Russian Propaganda machine.

It details why Europeans are so worried about Trump win.
They were so shocked Trump's denial regarding Russian Hacking during 3rd debates.

I have a friend from Russia. She married to an American business man who does business with Russia.

He goes back and forth. After reading this article, I cannot see this guy in a same way I used to. I may not doubt him as a active Russian informer; however, he can be exploited for a long time against American interest. I am very sure he has been using Russian escort services in the past.

Do you also remember that Papa bush was CIA. I don't like them and disagree almost with everything they stands. However, they must be aware of Russian serious threat.

Finally, Br-exit votes were influenced by Russian propaganda since it is clearly against EU interest and for Russian interest.

Ultimately, Russian want to weaken NATO while Trump only care about 'His money and his libido'.

1. We live in dangerous times and about half of the US is clueless and can't think beyond the latest

ad they saw on the TV.

14. And is the national television news media talking about this?

 

Of course not! Its Hillary's email 24/7 and the horse race.

I do not believe your average american knows that out of control FBI agents are working with a Russian dictator to subvert and destroy democracy in America.

You sure wouldn't learn that on the evening network news shows

6. From cable yackers, maybe, but very few people,

comparatively speaking, watch cable, at all or more than a brief period. Some just are not plugged in. Nevertheless, discussion of Russia and Trump is all over social media like Facebook and Twitter, and it has been mentioned on the evening news and on social media sites like Facebook. The AP has also used its dangerous ability to blanket America with "releases" to blanket it with a number of pieces about Trump and Russia.

15. I'm referring to people I know on Facebook. Only hard Dem partisans believe it or care.

 

Really sad.

19. Umm. This is probably doing more harm to the

"Sentient Septic Tank" than you realize. But only among certain groups of populace. It should knock him out of the race entirely, of course, but then at least 30 other revelations should also have.

We've seen several months now of PROOF of what a Princeston study reports: That most people vote their teams. Period. Claims of traditional ideology and principles are bogus. Shockingly, these people will abandon whatever morals and principals they previously espoused under different leaders to adapt to whatever their current leader espouses.

And of course those people deny that their current leader and they are espousing treason. Because their leader says they're not. If he said they were, they'd wear it proudly.

That's the way it is. We have to deal with this reality, much like gravity.

23. Lol. Sorry. Happily, Poison Skittles is about to start

disappearing, even if noisily. He's hoping to remain in our lives, via his own network or whatever, and he'll be a welcome guest on Russia Today and Sputnik, no doubt, but that won't be our problem.

And orange will once again bring nice things to mind.

8. There is ONE reason it is a big yawn

because russia is gaming it for the republicans.

THAT is how fucked up this country is.

They hate russia with a red hot passion.

Russia games the election to favor their candidate and now they love them some russia.

Our fecklass, republican lap dog media won't address it because their masters don't want them to.

This country, for the 1,000,000 time indulges republican jack assery and doesn't give a shit.

IF the russians were pulling this and it worked against the republicans, this would have been seen in a COMPLETELY different light.

17. true-- the media largely reflects conservative concerns. Russia is helping them, so they don't care

 

and the media largely ignores it.
