Making stuff up may excite the GOPerbase, but it's still lyinhg. What Putin did was install a POTUS who is his poodle, and he was able to pull it off because for 30 years the GOPerLords have trained their base to believe the most outlandish things about all who oppose the creation of a heriditary Oligarchy to rule America.

 

The GOPerLords may not have realized how easy it would be for someone really skilled at large scale Psychological Warefare to hijack their base and use them to install a puppetPOTUS, but that does not change the fact it's happened.

 

Der Trumper is so terrified of Putin he continues to do Vlad's bidding to destroy NATO and the economies of the Free World while elevating all other tyrants to celestial worship status with his remarks.

 

He pretended to be amazed he had sided with Vlad against our own Intelligence services AGAIN, but within 24 hours, the gutless wunderkind was claiming our NATO ally Montenegero was unworthy of our support because they were both puny and aggressive, thus renegging on his tempid support for NATO the day before.

 

The leader of the Republican Party is a tool of Russia and the elected GOPers and their base will defend him to the end because otherwise they will lose power.

 

The only solution is to remove Republicans from office so they cannot aid and abet Der Trumper in his stealth handover of America to the Russians.

 

VOTE OUT THE NRAGOP IN NOVEMBER.

Trump Cult members never believe one negative word about their hero and idol in the White House. But JimC falls for every conspiracy theory which Fox repeats non-stop 24/7. 

 

"The allegation that the money was spent to fund anti-Likud, anti-Netanyahu groups in Israel for the election is based on speculation. Yes, Obama sent money to OneVoice, a group that promoted a two-state solution. And yes that group partnered with a different group V15 that wanted Netanyahu defeated. But there is no paper trail that the money given to OneVoice was spent on an electoral ground game."

 

Next, comparing the above with Russian cyberattacks on our democracy is absurd.

How quickly the Obama supporters forget...  Obama meddled in the Israel's elections trying to sabotage Netenyahu but that's OK...

 

You people really need to get a grip on reality...

Jim  you will have to excuse me if I find myself confused by your post.

so, we know for sure that the Russians have always tried to meddle into the elections of anyDemocracy.  Right?
Well  if that is so. is it ok that they attempt to meddle into our elections now? and do we have the need to stop them or let them continue with their work?
It doesn't make it right that they have done this forever, is the fact that this time it was us. Unless you know think that is OK for them to do so in exchange for  their friendship.

So, do we have any idea why THIS president has decided not to fight back and to go so far as to deny that it is happening?  Seems almost like something a traitor would do.

Joe Biden said Tuesday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stopped the Obama administration from speaking out about Russian interference in the 2016 campaign by refusing to sign on to a bipartisan statement of condemnation.

 

That moment, the former Democratic vice president said, made him think “the die had been cast ... this was all about the political play.”

 

He expressed regret, in hindsight, given the intelligence he says came in after Election Day. "Had we known what we knew three weeks later, we may have done something more,” Biden, a potential 2020 presidential candidate, said.

 

Biden was speaking at an event hosted by the Council on Foreign Relations, a block from his old office at the Old Executive Office Building, to discuss his new article in the latest issue of Foreign Affairs, “How to Stand Up to the Kremlin.”

 

Biden said he and former President Barack Obama worried that without a united front of bipartisanship, speaking out before the election would undermine the legitimacy of the election and American institutions in a way that would play into the Russians’ larger ambitions.

 

“Can you imagine if the president called a press conference in October, with this fella, Bannon, and company, and said, ‘Tell you what: Russians are trying to interfere in our elections and we have to do something about it,’” Biden said. “What do you think would have happened? Would things have gotten better, or would it further look like we were trying to delegitimize the electoral process, because of our opponent?”

 

McConnell’s office disputed this account, pointing to a letter signed by all four congressional leaders in September 2016 and sent to the president of the National Association of State Election Directors, urging cybersecurity precautions in light of reports of attempted hacking.

 

Biden: McConnell stopped Obama from calling out Russians

My mom just said that to me last week.  The difference is, all prior administrations tried to stop it.  This one helps it.

As we've learned, Trump Cult members live in an alternate reality where the truth is irrelevant. A Republican controlled Congress voted on sanctions against Russia, but the Trump administration refuses to implement those sanctions.

 

Anybody know why? I'm LOL

Funny how this all makes it acceptable to Conservatives that the Russians succeeded.  It's OK because the Russians wanted their candidate to win.
