Understood, works both ways, we are obligated.  Doesn't mean we'll ever enjoy a craft beer together.

Great new article from Natasha at Business Insider; check out the quote below regarding crimes and facebook

Mueller just obtained a warrant that could change the entire nature of the Russia investigation

Quote

 

The Facebook warrant "means that Mueller has concluded that specific foreign individuals committed a crime by making a 'contribution' in connection with an election," Mariotti wrote on Saturday.

"It also means that he has evidence of that crime that convinced a federal magistrate judge of two things: first, that there was good reason to believe that the foreign individual committed the crime. Second, that evidence of the crime existed on Facebook."

That has implications for Trump and his associates, too, Mariotti said. 

"It is a crime to know that a crime is taking place and to help it succeed. That's aiding and abetting. If any Trump associate knew about the foreign contributions that Mueller's search warrant focused on and helped that effort in a tangible way, they could be charged."

Guess who oversaw Trump's digital campaign? 

How's it going to look when Kushner and co. get the pardon while Kremlin backers are stuck facing interpol warrants...

Mueller asking for, and being given a warrant, means a federal magistrate judge was convinced there is evidence of a crime and the evidence is on Facebook.

Wait, are they investigating Hillary taking in foreign money now?  I thought that was a given.  I think there is a lot of this below (with the Russians) going on now...

I was going to post this in the Antifa thread, but this is clearly an attack by Russia and Bright bart.

  1. September 14, Bright bart reports that "Boston Antifa" claims responsibility for a racist protest
  2. The real Antifa disclaims any "Boston Antifa" group and reports there are no Boston Antifa groups
  3. September 27, "Boston Antifa" posts on twitter with location turned on: FROM VLADIVOSTOK, RUSSIA

So what do we know?
Bright Bart is perpetuating Russian sourced and created disinformation

Bright bart says:

Quote

Boston Antifa claims that an ESPN writer inspired them to perform this act. The above statement reads, “We were largely inspired by Howard Bryant who now writes for ESPN. His article ‘Don’t expect protests in baseball–it’s a white man’s game by design’ was inspirational.””

There aren’t enough, “I told you so’s” in the “I told you so” factory, to do justice to this revelation. While ESPN has been running themselves in circles trying to shoot down the idea that they are what they are, a leftist cable-network with highlight reels. In addition to engaging in rank hypocrisy in how they treat their liberal host’s versus their conservative hosts.

Here we have confirmation from the mouths of the heathen rank-and-file themselves, that the words of ESPN writers aren’t just in-league with their views, but the words of ESPN writers inform and inspire their actions.

Let that sink in.

 

 

 

Now take a moment to realize, Bright bart wants a RUSSIAN DISINFORMATION Twitter account to "SINK IN" to your conscious. Bright bart is an extension of Vladimir putin's ****

New study out from some PhDs

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Vladimir Putin’s Russia is engaged in a well-financed and determined campaign to undermine democratic political and social institutions as well as international alliances, and to remove resistance to Russia’s foreign policy objectives. Russia has the motive and the means to do so.

Russia’s motives are clear. Putin resents the collapse of the Soviet Union and seeks to restore Russia’s lost empire in order to give the Russian government a freer hand at home and abroad. Russia’s intervention in the American election was part of a broader effort to undermine confidence in Western democracies and the credibility of Western institutions; weaken trans-Atlantic relationships, including NATO; diminish the international appeal of the United States as well as reduce American power abroad; reassert Russian power; and, ultimately, protect Putin’s regime from the threat of people power.

The means at Russia’s disposal include: official Russian state-organs, such as its intelligence services, that have a long history of conducting such operations; state controlled media outlets, such as RT and Sputnik which are propaganda arms whose narratives seep into Western media coverage; and Russian-controlled bots and trolls in social media that engineer the trends and popularity of both individuals and narratives. Russia has a long history of employing so-called “active measures” that by 2016 included traditional propaganda and computational propaganda, cybercrimes, as well as weaponized information—in the form of selective release of information to groups like Wikileaks. Finally, there is evidence of Russian support to and ties with the American so-called “Alt-Right,” ethno-nationalists, and secessionist movements in California and Texas, among other places—all of which serve to undermine U.S. political cohesion.

 

Russia’s assault on Western democracies, including the United States, exploits features of free and open societies.

To fight-back, the United States must take decisive actions:
• Improve transparency and raise public awareness of the threat. Too much of the public discussion has focused on possible crimes committed by people around then- candidate Donald Trump. That focus obscures the magnitude of the challenge and the enduring nature of the threat, regardless of what happens in the investigation of the Trump team. Accordingly:
○ Congress must create an independent, bipartisan commission to establish a widely-accepted understanding of Russian actions, means, and objectives in the 2016 election.
○ Among the commission’s objectives, it must look beyond the 2016 campaign and expose the activities of trolls, bots, and other foreign actors, including those that are still active today, whether in battleground states or in states with active secession movements or vulnerable to exploitation over divisive social issues.
○ The news industry must determine whether their current standards and practices allow them to identify when they are the vehicle for a propaganda campaign and expose other outlets that lack those standards.
Social media platforms must be regulated so that political ads and sponsored content are clearly identified as such and there is transparency about who is paying for that content.
○ Public and private resources must be brought to bear to fund the scholars, journalists, and investigators who will educate the American public and policymakers about a threat that has not waned.

• Prepare the executive branch for a new cold war.
 Organizations from the White House to the intelligence community need to be reviewed for their efficacy in meeting the propaganda challenge to the West. The White House must communicate to Congress the need for any new authorizations to meet this threat. It must also request sufficient appropriations for these activities and prosecute these programs vigorously .
 The administration also must provide the diplomatic leadership required for an international response to the common challenge posed by Russian intervention in the democratic processes of the West.
 • Congress must lead.
 In the absence of clear executive branch willingness or readiness to lead on this issue, the U.S. Congress must take the initiative. It can do so by eliminating “dark-money” in American politics; requiring more transparency by corporations operating in the United States; embracing bipartisanship in the defense of American democracy; and reforming the laws governing the activities of foreign agents operating in the United States—to begin by considering legislative changes that would require state-sponsored media outlets, such as RT and Sputnik, to publicly reveal their sources of funding.
 •Invest in the American people.
 We must once again consider education a national priority and the cornerstone for an effective defense of democracy. Russia exploited America’s media illiteracy, our civic illiteracy, and our historical illiteracy. Programs to increase the public’s resistance to influence by foreign powers should be either buttressed, expanded, or created. This is a long-term effort and one we must begin now.

 The press and the American public are mistaken if they focus exclusively on the question of whether President Trump or his team colluded with Russia in the 2016 election. The Russian effort is larger than the election of a president. It seeks to sow division within the United States and within the broader community of Western democracies. While crimes need to be prosecuted if they occurred, the public should be sensitized and their attention reoriented to combat the broader Russian effort to weaken our faith in our free institutions, and undermine the political cohesion of the United States.

Your regular reminder that:

  • This campaign of driving divisions via social media was part of a proven Russian plan to influence the election. US Intel has the internal memos to prove it.

  • This is exactly what Trump's own self-described voter suppression campaign did, also largely via Facebook.

  • The timeline strongly suggests coordination between the two campaigns.

Negative. Wrong side.

 

I really am thinking he got banned or suspended though. I remember thinking he got a little out of hand with somebody....even for him.

There really shouldn't be a side when it comes to that IMO.

I don't remember seeing anything but I'm not on near as much as I used to be either so there's that...

Oh, it's a complete jab, I fully own that  The point I'm making by doing so is that it shouldn't be partisan at all.  Whether it's Trump, Clinton, whoever, wrong is wrong.
