My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
I cannot imagine being Robby Mooks the day after the 2016 election. As Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager and also the youngest campaign manager ever for a national presidential campaign he must have felt incredibly bad. We all felt bad but he has a job of getting her elected.
So this opinion piece is kind of a catharsis for him. He has seen what the special counsel and other prosecutors have put on the table regarding the 2016 election. The Republicans cheated and not only did they cheat but they cheated with Russians. Look I’m used to Republicans cheating, they do so with voter suppression, libertini time for early voting, not allowing elections to be held on a day off for people who work to be able to go and vote without having stress of their jobs, and a host of other things which I’m not going to list. It’s been my experience that Republicans cheat in order to win. Sure Democrats do so as well but not in the grand scale that the Republicans the so-called grand old party uses.
What’s most upsetting to me about the current Republican stand on these election interference is by Russia is that they don’t have a stand. They don’t seem to care. When the shoe will be on the other foot and a country tries to get a democratic candidate into office watch how quickly Republicans will start wanting reforms which will stop this kind of shenanigans. But until then it suits them. They don’t care about our country they care about getting someone else into the Supreme Court so that they can mold the country into their vision of a conservative Utopia.
You make America great peopleagain were fooled. You are full by the Russians and it’s time for you to come to that realization. I was fooled by Russians acting like Bernie Sanders supporters although I never took their bait I really did not like what they were saying. I blocked people like that and I still block people who are not espousing American values but trying to divide our country.
We As Americans, and the world in general are being fooled by Russians a country that’s at best a third-rate nation with little or no Navy and the only thing to speak of is there nuclear Arsenal. They have the 29th largest economy in the world, that puts them way behind several States including New York and California. So Russia get back in your hole and stay there.
We need to step up? You accepted advertising against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 elections and they were paid for in Rubles, just in case you don’t know Mr. Zuckerberg that is the Russian currency. Did you not think that that was a little strange? And you’re saying that you’re going to step up and yet you gave no, I mean no details as to what you’re going to do as you step up. Although I’ve been going to the gym a lot since I deactivated my Facebook account I don’t trust you as far as I can throw you. You’re in it for the money and nothing else and you don’t care about your over 1 billion customers who rely upon you to keep their information safe.
What are you doing about the Bots running Rampage across your social media Network? One thing I know is that Twitter is doing something about it. Each day I see the number of people I follow go down which means that Twitter is eliminating accounts that are not real people. Do your Facebook users see their friend count go down? I doubt that because you’re 1 billion customers to your advertisers.
And yes, we signed our life away when we sign up with Facebook because their “User agreement” is written by lawyers who have lawyers who have lawyers and we just signed blindly. And all your talk about privacy went out the drain when the information about Cambridge analytica came out.
Deactivating my account has been a wonderful thing in my life and I hope others follow suit.
For the last couple of weeks I have been asking Twitter support questions regarding Bots. One question I asked is would they Institute a message to verify that individuals are real people and not butts. I also asked them how is an individual supposed to know if they’re dealing with a bot or real person on Twitter. My queries have been met by silence. I get their automated response that says thank you for your feedback so on and so on and so on. As I’ve made it quite clear I have deactivated my Facebook account. So my only social media platform is Twitter. Twitter is afraid to remove all the Box because there total user ship will fall drastically. I have noticed in the last few weeks the number of people I am following has been falling. Not by a lot but I would say between 5 to 10 a week. This idea by senator Amy Klobuchar to find the social media platforms for not looking for Bots is genius. I have asked to have my account verified by Twitter and from their guidelines I met all of the requirements but they said no. So I don’t have a lot of choices at this point other than to opt out of Twitter. Honestly, the amount of traffic that comes to this blog from Twitter and always has been. I did get a large hit when I deactivated my Facebook account but I have joined a company called BlogPros and they have helped my numbers go back up.
Social media has created this problem and they need to fix it.
Colin Powell has always been one man who has had a great dignity and character. I’m sorry that his personal emails were hacked. He was hacked by the alleged Russian hackers of the DNC and the anti-doping agency for the Olympics. I wish he had made his feelings more public. But I believe that he reflects what so many America loving Republicans believe. Donald Trump is truly a disgrace and it’s not fit to be the president of the United States and especially the Commander in Chief of our military.
Yesterday I posted on my blog that this Russian incursion into the Democratic National committee’s files was suspicious to me. Now I’m not the only one who is suspicious. Rachel Maddow puts two and two together and says that the Russian government wants Donald Trump to be the president of the United States. They are complicit with him. Today Gawker.com was given the complete file of opposition research that the Democratic party had on Donald Trump and released it immediately to the public. So there goes anything we may have had on Trump. I’m not that worried because to be honest Trump Is His Own Worst Enemy and each time he opens his mouth out pours opposition research. For someone who is so quick to saying that Hillary Clinton should go to jail I think Donald Trump should be worried. Being complicit with a foreign government in Espionage is treason. This is not a Blog conspiracy theory, this is the law. Watch Rachel as she makes the case of US vs. Donald Trump.
