Rk-The difference is that Mr. Obama is overtly speaking up, which any citizen in any free country is legally able to do. The Russians are running a covert operation specifically meant to derail a candidate who is not of its choosing.

Scout, they just keep trying to change history, don't they? Is it because they are historically challenged or is it that true history just doesn't suit them?

 

scout, "they" realize that there is much, much to history beyond an obsession with "32 years ago". For instance, "they" understand that "Star Wars" was a major factor in the end of the Cold War. The USSR realized they could not afford to keep up.

Now, back to the topic - the French elections. When an American ex-President endorses Macon, is that American interference. Or do only Russians interfere?

Reagan did nothing to "build up" the US Military. What he did was waste billions on failed systems. There was his pipe-dream of a 600-ship Navy, which lead to building a new class of frigate with an aluminium hull, which cracked, the Zumwalt stealth destroyer and a next gen cruiser that was never built but consumed $200M in development costs. Then the USAF got the Kenetic Energy Interceptor for Star Wars that never worked but ate $1.3B before being cancelled and the airbourne laser, $5B wasted. Not to be left out, Army wasted $1.3B on the Crusaider gun system and $3.3B on a new APC and $6.6B on a new helicopter that was never built. Meanwhile he continued to waste billions on a reserve system that was never designed for use in actual combat and more billions on various space-based systems that did not pan out.

Reagan's ONLY involvement was to have so depleted US Government resources we were unable to provide any significant aid to the DEMOCRATIC forces in Russia that toppled the Soviet regime, only to be pushed aside by the neoCommies just like the Socialists who won the first revolution were displaced by the Commies. Had Yelsen's government been able to feed the people (with US aid) there would've been no call for a "strong leader" to end the corruption that kept the shelves bare, and Vlad would be unknown outside the KGB alumni association.


Had Reagan not built up the military that was weakened in the aftermath of Watergate and the Carter Administration, we may have still had the Cold War. Had that not happened we would not have had that "peace dividend" that was used to........?????

 

But, by your theory we should have developed another massive welfare program - this time for Russia. Cool!!! We could have modeled it after the "War on Poverty" and we would have millions of Russians dependent on our 1%er to feed them still today.

 

That "32 years ago" obsession is really taking some strange twists.

Rker-French officials have actually asked the United States government for help with this problem since we just went through it.

mick--Thank you for your post.  Russian interference came up this morning in a townhall meeting.  What a coincidence that 6,000 e-mails damaging to Le Pen's opponent were released so close to France's election.  How can this be denied?  The Russian government keeps supporting the same candidate--the names and faces of said candidates are the only things that change.

Little children hide their heads and hide from the things that scare them or that they don't want to be true.  It's time we all faced the truth about what the Russians have and are doing. 

THESE MEDDLINGS ARE NOT FOR THE GOOD OF THE COUNTRIES IN WHOSE ELECTIONS THEY ARE INFLUENCING.  THIS IS ALL FOR THE GOOD OF PUTIN AND HIS MURDEROUS, VILE REGIME.


I took a quick trip (electronic) to what Donald's most avid bloggers were saying and yep, they were celebrating this news of this hack.    The information they were writing was inaccurate, but what was more interesting is that these are a bunch of people who are nationalists....so why would they care about what was going on in a foreign country?

UMBARCH--The correct discription of little donnie's lying is compulsive--also known as Pseudologia Fantastica

 

Symptoms--

Lies are believable and may have truthful elements. 

 

The lying continues for a long period of time and is not caused by some immediate pressure of stress

 

The terms pathological and compulsive lying are interchangeable.

(goodtherapy.org)

Compulsive or pathological liars are suffering from a mental health disorder.

This just validates my posting in another topic saying that Putin and the Russians were not only involved in our elections but were trying to influence ours and other elections in countries in Europe and elsewhere. This is almost a global effort with them.They want Right Wingers in office everywhere they can. I guess that's why the Right Wing has no complaints about it? Thank goodness some Washington Republicans don't look at it that way.


I don't know if I'm ready to characterize this phenomenon as being - Thankful for Those Republicans Goodness - most of them just want to - Kill As Many People As They Can Find Who Aren;t Like Them - Rich Politically Powerful White American Christain Men!
