If the Russians are already meddling into our elections what is it that we citizens can do to help stop any of this?

We can't expect anything from this Administration so, what are we Americans to do about any of this


Well, we could stop doing the bidding of the Russian agents trying to sow division to weaken our nation. Stop calling the President a traitor might be a place to start. All that "poodle" jazz might be another idea.

Don't believe the non-sense posted on Facebook and other sources of Fake News. Tell your families and friends to be alert to fake information and call it out when you see it.

 

And don't find yourself being an ignorant fool like this woman:

Microsoft reveals first known midterm campaign hacking attempts - POLITICO 

 

 


Why not? Putin knows we will not go to war on this, and Der Trumper has handed him a whole continent of nations (Europe) that is so disgusted with Lemontop those sanctions we placed on Russia are going to unravel in a couple weeks.

 

The ONLY way to stop Putin from destroying our Demcoracy is to remove his allies - The Republicans in House and Senate - and investigate, expose and prosecute Der Trumper's Treason. Then take the money wasted on keeping refugee children and willing workers out of the country and spend it to make our internet secure before Putin (or Trump's 400lb buddy sitting in his mom's basement) decides to simply shut down all our power plants and hospitals.

 

VOTE OUT THE NRAGOP IN NOVEMBER!

 

 


We should go after Microsoft for not telling us where this happened, who it was directed against, and who was behind it. The time has long passed when Microsoft can just say it happened. We need to take action to make sure the people or person who was to benefit from this effort are never elected to anything, and the party they are part of is never allowed to win an election in that area. What you are seeing is a cop out by Microsoft and they should not be allowed to get away with it.


At this time I don’t blame Microsoft since it should be our government providing the information. Sadly, without this very limited announcement from Microsoft we would probably never find out about it.

 

I hope that both our governments and tech companies get more aggressive in protecting our systems, providing news of breaches and attempts, and prosecuting those who commit these crimes.


Your hope will not come true as long as Trump controls the Feds. Dictators do not due what you want. Microsoft wants this to die out quickly so will do nothing unless the public demands it which the public should.

  • I bet this is only the first way more to come. I think better security is needed to stop our countries from interfering with our elections

Sarcasm noted. And 'Donnie' is very little (mentally) when compared to Putin.

and now I read where Trump has invited his best bud to the White House this fall!! The collusion just continues on and on and on.....his intel Chief Dan Coats was not to amused. He is not alone, but since the GOP is spineless, Trump can do anything he wants without any repercussion, never mind any detriment to the country. Sad!
