They targeted those (voters) who were prone to conspiracy theories and impulsive anger.

Remember Cambridge Analytica and their psyops campaign for trump? 

snipped:
"We also pulled Facebook profiles, looking for patterns in order to build a neural-network algorithm that would help us make predictions. Cambridge Analytica would target those who were more prone to impulsive anger or conspiratorial thinking than average citizens, introducing narratives via Facebook groups, ads, or articles that the firm knew from internal testing were likely to inflame the very narrow segments of people with these traits. CA wanted to provoke people, to get them to engage."

"We know what happened in the United States. You (Ukraine Pres. Zelensky) have nowhere left to go."

Russians Praise Trump, Taunt Zelensky, as Ukraine Signs On to Peace-Plan Proposal
https://www.thedailybeast.com/russians-praise-trump-taunt-zelensky-as-ukraine-signs-on-to-steinmeier-formula-peace-plan-proposal?source=twitter&via=desktop

“Trump let Zelensky down. Three times he told him: ‘Go meet with Putin,’” gloated one prominent Russian TV host.  “After his ‘triumphant’ meeting with the American president, Zelensky had no choice but to lie back and enjoy it… We know what happened in the United States. You have nowhere left to go.”

Existential dread washed over the face of the president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, as he sat next to the American president during their joint press conference on the sidelines of the UN. Donald Trump, as the face of Ukraine’s most powerful ally in its struggle against Russian aggression, was telling him: “I really hope you and President Putin get together and can solve your problem.”


Appearing on Russia’s state television program 60 Minutes, Oleg Nilov, member of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, asserted that Ukraine was “forced to sign” the Steinmeier Formula—and proceeded to threaten the country with “the Israeli formula” of taking all the land Russia wants, if Kyiv reneges on the deal.

Wait for it...trump will ask for Russian sanctions to be dropped, Putin's master plan achieved.

Now that Ukraine has capitulated to Russia, trump will ask that sanctions imposed on Russia for it's invasion of Ukraine be removed. 

Receiving aid from the U.S. has always been a matter of life or death for Ukraine in its war with Russia.  trump severely weakened their hand with his extortion sending a clear signal that Ukraine can't count on us in deterring Russian aggression.  

So the Russian asset occupying our White House and Putin will most likely achieve untold success in their conspiracy to weaken the U.S., create dissension and chaos in our Democracy, and relieve many sanctions on Russia (for Putin and his oligarchs).

Pompeo Pushed Out His Own Ukraine Rep to Squash a Growing Scandal

Giuliani waved his phone on air, flashing text messages between himself and State Department representatives, saying it was the department that connected him to a close adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Giuliani’s on-air appearances threw the department into a tizzy, forcing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to try to quell a bubbling internal crisis of confidence, according to three senior U.S. officials. For Pompeo, to solve the problem meant to find someone to blame, and there was only one individual who fit the mold, according to those same sources: former U.S. representative for Ukraine negotiations Kurt Volker.

In response, Pompeo tried a time-tested Trump White House strategy: stonewalling Congress. The secretary said Tuesday that Congress was “bullying” career officials and suggested they would not appear for questioning. (The State Department’s inspector general is currently investigating members of Pompeo’s department for pushing career officials out of their posts for perceived political bias.)

Pompeo’s plan appears to have backfired. Despite the secretary’s efforts to block several of his current and former officials from speaking to Congress, Volker is set to go to Capitol Hill on Thursday with the backing of a cadre of current and former diplomats. Some of those diplomats spoke to The Daily Beast and requested anonymity because they feared reprisals from Pompeo and other Trump administration officials.

Now the department is bracing for impact. Current and former State Department officials who spoke to The Daily Beast, some of who are close Volker, said he was forced out of his post. Volker’s interview with Congress could lay bare details of Pompeo’s involvement in the Trump-Giuliani Ukraine saga.

"Disaster for Ukraine"

Michael MacKay
@mhmck
Disaster for Ukraine. President Zelenskyy has agreed to the 'Steinmeier Formula' which which will see Ukrainian defenders withdraw from the battlefront in Donbas and Russian invaders allowed to remain.

Zelenskyy refused to say why Ukraine is surrendering.

FGS, I can't believe it!
