Russia's evil deeds revealed in interview with Caroline Orr


This interview is really long and gives you a deep insight into what the hell happened. I learned so much and have a much better understanding of the story behind Trump's Russia conspiracy!

Clipped parts from the story....

Enter the robots

Orr: I stayed up oftentimes into the early morning hours, and started to notice at 2, 3 and 4 a.m., patterns of Twitter activity that were just weird.

I had a baseline understanding of what normal activity looked like, what automated or bot activity looks like, and what heavy traffic looks like. Hashtags appearing out of nowhere at three in the morning are not normal unless there’s breaking news.

The activity pattern was very abnormal. Beyond the time factor of being 3 a.m., these tweets were being pushed in waves. You’d see these big spikes in activity where a bunch of tweets will come out all at once and then it drops back off.

This pattern was not organic — it was not people sitting at their computers deciding all at once to tweet about media lies. A couple of the tweets were geo-tagged to Macedonia, which was known to host these fake news farms.

End of my clips......there is a lot more including stories of how Pizzagate happened and so much more. It is well worth your reading time.

Again here's the link straight to the story at National Observer.

#Jesus: "No."

#RoyMoore: "La la la la la I CAN'T HEAR YOU JESUS!"

#God: "In other words: just another day in conservative Christianity."

Just saw this on Quora!

What would you do if you ran into Barack Obama?

Ron Wagner, I met Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush 41 & Trump.

I’d tell him that I used to be a pilot in the Presidential Wing at Andrews and that my flying career led me to shake hands with and fly six US Presidents but that of all of them I am absolutely THRILLED to shake hands with my seventh one because he’s the one I admire the most.

I’d say I really miss having him as POTUS. Really. Really. Really. Miss him and the class that he brought to our whole country.

LOL too funny. Opinion piece on Drumph by Harretz (Israeli newspaper)

Here's a couple paragraphs...

Stupidity is one of the more easily accessible and widespread explanations for Trump’s behavior. It’s no coincidence, of course, that his election resurrected the futuristic cult classic “Idiocracy’ about a dumbed down America that chooses a loutish porn actor as president. It’s true that Trump has claimed in the past that his IQ is much higher than that of Obama or of comedian John Stewart, but in that case, he’s doing an excellent job of concealing his intelligence, as his visit this week to Puerto Rico showed.

Some people ascribe Trump’s behavior in such events to obnoxious racism rather than stupidity. Prejudice and racial stereotypes are such a prominent feature of his personality, they maintain, that he just can’t keep them under lock. He has described himself as ‘the least racist person ever,” but since he launched his presidential run by describing Mexican immigrants as rapists and murderers, Trump has described Puerto Ricans as lazy, Muslims as wannabe terrorists, African-Americans as thugs, Jews as proficient with money and women as inferior sexual objects. It’s only among neo-Nazis, apparently, that Trump has found “some fine people.”

The rest is just as interesting. Lots more at https://www.haaretz.com/us-news/1.815879

Secret Service vacates Trump Tower command post in lease dispute with presidents company

Source: Washington Post

The Secret Service has vacated its command post inside Trump Tower in Manhattan following a dispute between the government and President Trump’s company over the terms of a lease for the space, according to two people familiar with the discussions.

Previously, the Secret Service had stationed its command post — which houses supervisors and backup agents on standby in case of an emergency — in a Trump Tower unit one floor below the president’s apartment.

But in early July, the post was relocated to a trailer on the sidewalk, more than 50 floors below, a distance that some security experts worry could hamper the agency that protects the president’s home and family.

The command post appears unlikely to move anytime soon back inside Trump Tower, where the president and his family have rarely gone since moving to the White House.

Wow more crap happening on top of the grand jury and other things. Stock up on your popcorn!

U.S.: Syria government has constructed a crematorium to dispose of thousands of prisoners

Source: Washington Post

By Washington Post Staff May 15 at 12:14 PM
Officials say at least 50 prisoners a day are executed, some in mass hangings, at the notorious Sednaya military prison outside of Damascus. And the officals accused Russia and Iran of complicity in “these atrocities.” The U.S. released aerial photos of the facility and said its information came from “intelligence assessments” as well as human rights groups.
This is a developing story. It will be updated.

No more news at link....to be updated.
Update...more news at above link has been updated.
Shades of the holocaust? It seems to be backed by Russia and Iran.

Sounds like the Trump-Russiagate grand jury is making headway!


Don't fall for browsing history fundraisers....interesting Snopes article

Activists Threaten to Spill Congress’ Browsing Histories After Privacy Rollback


Redditor Tempkins writes..
1. First off – this bill hasn’t been signed, the data doesn’t exist, and nobody knows what they’re talking about. We don’t know if there will be any data to buy, how it will work, or what will be available. This means you should be very skeptical of any GoFundMe projects to buy this data. They are making promises they can’t possibly keep.If and when any data becomes available, myself and Cards Against Humanity will do whatever we can do acquire it and publish it. We have a long track record of activism and spending around government transparency issues. We’ve donated over a million dollars to the Sunlight Foundation and the EFF.

2. This may take a long time. We may have to file FOIA requests. We may have to buy browsing data for Congressional office building ZIP codes and then p-hack our way to statistical significance in an attempt to fish spurious correlations out of unreliable datasets, but we’ve done it before.

3. The amount of attention this is getting is honestly starting to scare me. I know that voting this up is funny, and easy, and feels good. But even if we get this data, it’s a symbolic victory at best. Our basic human rights, like the right to privacy, are being sold to the highest bidder while the best minds of our generation are here on Reddit asking pro gamers if they want to fight a horse-sized duck or whatever. Real, material change requires sacrifice. You probably can’t do it on a computer. If you’re frustrated with the way things are going, the incompetence and corruption of government, and the money in politics, we need to support institutions like the EFF and we need to be heard by elected officials. I really like the tool 5Calls.org. If 100 Redditors called a congressman, it would freak them out and their staff would have to do something about it. It really doesn’t take much.

Online sales for the Ivanka Trump brand fell 26 percent in January (CNBC)

So it's definitely not political as Trump and Co. says.

"Slice Intelligence said sales declines of Ivanka Trump goods online were evident after the election, and beyond. Ivanka Trump's online sales fell 26 percent in January compared to January 2016.

Sales of Ivanka Trump merchandise on Nordstrom.com fell 63 percent in the fourth quarter, dropped 43 percent on Zappos.com and 31 percent at Amazon.com compared to the previous year.

Nordstrom said its decision wasn't political, it was business. The Slice Intelligence data appears to back up that claim, with Ivanka Trump merchandise sales down, at least online, for Nordstrom.

On Wednesday, the department store further clarified its decision not to place new orders for the brand because sales have been "steadily declining" particularly in the second half of 2016, and it no longer makes "good business sense" to continue selling the line at this time."

So it looks like one more of the many FAILs from Trump and Co.
