Hilary The Russians And The Dangerous Dumb Ass In The White House

It took voter suppression, incredibly bad judgment by FBI Director Comey regarding Hilary’s emails and a seriously flawed Democratic candidate to almost lose the presidency. The final straw that did defeat Clinton, however, was, indeed, the Russian propaganda machine that infested social media. Well-crafted propaganda does work. There is no question of that.

The result of the problematic Electoral College outcome was determined by a microscopic 80,000-vote total of a few rustbelt states.

The fact that the Russians absolutely influenced the election is provable. Millions of Americans were teetering on the edge of firing off a protest vote against Hilary. It is very likely that million of bits of Russian fake news pushed them over the edge on that account.

A very simple poll will do the trick. Questions: Did you decide to make a protest vote against Hilary at the last minute? What articles did you read or TV events did you watch that you believe likely pushed you to cast your protest vote for either Trump or a third party candidate?

It is very likely that the data from such a poll will give us a pretty good idea of the bottom line effect of the highly sophisticated Russian campaign, causing the Russians to help insert the destructive Donald J. Trump into our democracy.

Tom Freedman, Mr. non-partisan columnist, says in essence that Trump is a clear and present danger to our nation. You can reasonable qualify Freedman as non partisan because the vast majority who read his column, his in depth analysis of the world, love his work while both the far right and far left — way not so much. That is about as good of proof of non-partisanship as it gets.

Here are a few excerpts from one of Mr. Freeman’s latest columns.

“It is so obvious what Trump is up to: Again, he is either a total sucker for Putin or, more likely, he is hiding something that he knows the Russians have on him, and he knows that the longer Mueller’s investigation goes on, the more likely he will be to find and expose it….

Donald, if you are so innocent, why do you go to such extraordinary lengths to try to shut Mueller down? And if you are really the president — not still head of the Trump Organization, who moonlights as president, which is how you so often behave — why don’t you actually lead — lead not only a proper cyberdefense of our elections, but also an offense against Putin….

This is code red. The biggest threat to the integrity of our democracy today is in the Oval Office.”
