I did but Ken Dilanian and Ben Popken are not posting here - you are. The reason I asked is because if Macys and Kohls use similar marketing techniques that would not mean they are colluding - it would mean that they are both using what they consider to be the best.

 

Does that make sense?

I would say that the 2016 Putin/Russian election ambush and the resulting turmoil now broiling throughout this country illustrates just how effective their efforts were.  Not only did they get their guy in the White House,  but they have in effect torn this country apart as "we" (i.e. YOU and ME -- US) find ourselves at each others throats on this site and others and in bars and across our own dining room tables.  In fact, we are no longer conservative Americans and liberal Americans who simply disagree on certain issues or ideologies.  No.  Now,  we see each other as enemies; enemy combatants even with chants of "lock her or him up" as our righteous war cry.  So see, Russia/Putin has won this battle so far as we have already been divided.  Next, if we are not careful, we (i.e you, me, and our nation as we know it) could be defeated.  Remember: Divide and Conquer is the name of the game in the Art of War!

From what I understand the interference is ongoing by Russia. There is much we can do between now and 2020, the problem sits in the White House.

I just hope that this Country learns from this experience. We take all the necessary steps to never let any foreign government influence our elections again.

you can't rule that out. Russia used all forms of social media. It wouldn't surprise me one bit.

I seriously wonder if some of the most insistent Trump supporters right here on these forums are, in fact, Russian social bots designed to spread pro-Trump propaganda.  I'm thinking this because some of their reasoning is beyond reason or good sense!

It has been brought up that many of the same styles and tactics the Russians used, the Trump campaign also used. So that begs the question, was there coordination? I think the answer is yes.

What style and techniques are you talking about?

Tom's report can't possibly be correct. Both Trump and Fox repeatedly told their viewers this was fake news.,
