FBI warns of disino campaign to target elections

They are urging people to count on their state officials for the most trusted info. We still don't live in normal times. The dis info campaign is probably a Trump/Russia combo. Many of us know how TRump operates, and its with a combo of lies, dis information and mis information. Another thing they may try to do is post election results on social media BEFORE the election has a winner. I just saw where Facebook will not allow sources to post this. GOOD!!

 

 

Sounds familiar:

 

 

In a public service announcement with the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the FBI cautioned that certifying the results of the U.S. election could take weeks and that "Foreign actors and cybercriminals could exploit the time required to certify and announce elections' results."

 

One potential scenario the agency warned of is hackers' defacing websites to indicate false election results, causing chaos and confusion without affecting vote tallying systems.

Hackers widely believed by analysts to be associated with Russian military intelligence have carried out such operations in Eastern European countries in recent years. During Ukraine's 2014 presidential election, Russian hackers defaced an official Ukrainian government website to display false results, leading to days of uncertainty over the true winner.

  donald has lied - not news.    Hilariously, Mother Jones has the tape that proves that one of his claims is a pose.   I can post it here only because the far-right followers will not watch a long video or believe any website that their handlers may not approve of.   https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2020/09/donald-trump-university-fraud-lawsuit-deposition-full-v...

The FBI has been asked to investigate a disinformation campaign specifically targeting Hispanic voters in Florida.  There has been a spike of far right and QAnon conspiracy theories on Spanish-speaking social media and radio. 

 

Only way IMPOOPUS can win is by interference and the far right extremists are working OT and going overboard with some outrageous lies to make it happen.

South Florida hispanics are mainly Cuban Americans who vote mostly Republican and are a huge voting block in Miami, Florida's largest city. They want a Republican, and hate Democrats since JFK screwed up the Bay of Pigs invasion to get their land back from the Communist Castro invasion. The United States has had zero interest in invading Cuba ever since.

 

 

Not surprised they are being pandered to by QAnon , who Trump likes. Trump just announced further sanctions on Cuba's current power. 

 

Different voting block than Porto Ricans and Mexicans and other states who usually vote Democrat and dislike Trump for his border issues.
