    President Trump, I’m Russian and I’m Not Laughing
    I fear the indictment of Russian internet trolls may lead to less freedom for both Americans and Russians.

    https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2018-02-19/mueller-s-indictment-of-russian-trolls-may-backfire

    “They are laughing their asses off in Moscow,” President Donald Trump tweeted on Sunday as part of his damage control after 13 Russian Facebook trolls were indicted for meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Really?

    Some Russians — including the man who runs the indicted troll factory — are indeed laughing, but I’m one Russian who isn’t. The fallout from the indictment comes too close to a couple of lines, both in U.S.-Russian relations and in attitudes toward free speech, that it would be best not to cross.

    The Internet Research Agency, a notorious St. Petersburg outfit specializing in propaganda, disinformation and cyberbullying, has been known to Russians — especially those critical of President Vladimir Putin — since 2013, when the investigative newspaper Novaya Gazeta published the first report about it. The organization had a strict security policy but also high staff turnover, so its vacancy ads and reports from people who have worked there or applied for jobs have been easy to find on the internet. Links to its many websites and the staunchly pro-Putin comments of its employees are a common sight on the social networks (I’ve had my share too from them).

    Now there’s a 37-page indictment detailing how the Internet Research Agency applied the same methods in the U.S., with its employees posing as Americans. Part of it concerns identity theft to open bank and PayPal accounts to enable payments in the U.S. — illegal activities worthy of prosecution. Another part deals with posting stuff on social networks, organizing small rallies and building a cage in which a Hillary Clinton impersonator would sit in a prison uniform — all pretty much their normal modus operandi in Russia and Ukraine (where their real identities are also hidden).

    The U.S. has laws that require foreign agents to register and which ban foreigners from buying campaign ads. These laws, however, have never been stringently applied — not even during the Cold War, when the Soviet Union did its best to promote the peace movement in the U.S. and beyond. That treatment made sense then. Writing in the Christian Science Monitor in 1982, Daniel Southerland — who would go on to become executive editor of U.S. government-funded Radio Free Asia — called President Ronald Reagan’s claim that Soviet secret agents were sent to the U.S. to foster the American nuclear freeze movement “an embarrassment for his administration.” He also noted that U.S. officials felt that with or without the Soviets, the freeze movement “would probably be about where it is today.”

    The same can be said of its effect on the 2016 election and U.S. politics in general. That’s obvious to Russians like myself who do not support the Putin regime and at the same time aren’t paranoid about its capacity to wreak havoc outside Russia. As economist Konstantin Sonin, a University of Chicago professor, posted on Facebook, “I still don’t see a mechanism through which an operation on a $5 million scale can seriously affect the outcome of a campaign in which one side spent $600 million and the other more than $1 billion.”

    But when it comes to Americans, it’s somehow left only to Trumpsters to argue that the U.S. is not a gigantic snowball that can melt from a little Russian trolling. That’s the bit that’s making pro-Putin Russians laugh. Yevgeny Prigozhin, the Kremlin-connected St. Petersburg caterer who is named in the indictment as the operation’s funder, mocked:

    Americans are very impressionable people, they see what they want to see. I have a lot of respect for them. I’m not at all upset that I’m on this list. If they want to see the devil, let them.

    My respect for U.S. traditions and values, unlike Prigozhin’s, is real, and it’s rooted in admiration for America’s ability to tolerate the nastiest kinds of public speech. A healthy society should be able to take this sort of thing in stride, as anti-Putin Russian commentators have long done with Prigozhin’s troll factory.

    Apparently this author lives in some bubble that does not include liberal moonbat snowflakes who melt at the mere mention of common, everyday words that hurt them.

    Paul Craig Roberts Sums Up The Result Of Mueller’s Investigation: “Nothing!” – which is what we all said from the start, anyway.

    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-02-19/paul-craig-roberts-sums-result-muellers-investigation-nothing

    Robert Mueller discredited himself and his orchestrated Russiagate investigation last week (Friday, February 16, 2018) with his charges that 13 Russians and 3 Russian companies plotted to use social media to influence the 2016 election. Their intent, Mueller says, was to “sow discord in the US political system.”

    What pathetic results to come from a 9 month investigation!

    Note that the hyped Russian hacking of Hillary’s emails that we have heard about every day is nowhere to be found in Mueller’s charges.

    That’s because it was an inside job and they murdered the poor guy who did it – Seth Rich – for doing it.

    Note also that the Trump/Putin conspiracy is also not present in Mueller’s charges. Mueller’s charges say that the Russians’ plan to sow discord began in 2014, before there was any notion that Trump would run for president in 2017. The link of the plot to Putin is reduced to the allegation that the plot was financed by a St. Petersburg restaurateur whose connection to Putin is that his business once catered official dinners between Russian officials and foreign dignitaries.

    Finally, note that Mueller’s release of his charges in the face of dead news weekend means that Mueller knows that he has nothing to justify the massive propaganda onslaught against Trump for conspiring with Putin with which the presstitutes have regaled us. If the charges amounted to anything, they would have been released on Monday morning, and the presstitutes would have been handed by the FBI and CIA the news stories to file with their papers.

    How did the 13 Russians go about sowing discord? Are you ready for this?

    They held political rallies posing as Americans and they paid one person (unidentified) to build a cage aboard a flatbed pickup truck and another person to wear a costume portraying Hillary in prison clothes.

Much of the focus has been on the exploding debt of the federal government, and that is definitely something I plan to address once I get to Washington. But on an individual level, U.S. consumers have been extremely irresponsible as well.

    Independent: Florida school shooting: Russian bots pounce on high school massacre in bid to steer gun control debate

    One hour after news broke about the school shooting in Florida last week, Twitter accounts suspected of having links to Russia released hundreds of posts taking up the gun control debate. The accounts addressed the news with the speed of a cable news network. Some adopted the hashtag #guncontrolnow. Others used #gunreformnow and #Parklandshooting. Earlier on Wednesday, before the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, many of those accounts had been focused on the investigation by the special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

  19. KirklesWorth says:

    Laughable that CNN blames Trump for “mistrust” when they have been doing their damnedest to sow those seeds since the beginning.

    CNN: Trump’s venting may create government mistrust, which the Russian intervention was designed to incite

    Wittingly or not, President Donald Trump spent the Presidents Day weekend doing the Kremlin’s work. It may be months before Americans learn whether special counsel Robert Mueller will validate or reject allegations that Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with Moscow’s election meddling operation. But Trump’s three days of Twitter venting against the FBI, his political opponents and the Russia investigation from his Mar-a-Lago resort are likely to further incite mistrust in the institutions of democracy and government, which the Russian intervention was designed to foment.

    A Republican state senator who shouted at University of Idaho students in the Capitol to lobby for a birth control bill on Monday now faces an ethics complaint after a tweet from an account presenting as the lawmaker’s directed students to discuss “killing babies” with a Democratic colleague. State Sen. Maryanne Jordan filed the complaint against Republican state Sen. Dan Foreman. “It’s one thing to disagree with policy, it’s another thing to position something like that against another lawmaker,” Jordan said in response to the tweet Monday. “This type of behavior is beneath the Idaho Senate.”

    The russian also needs to understand that these indictments are for show; sacrificial lambs, as it were. There has been plenty of russian collusion, but it has largely been on the democrat side.

    CNBC: Trump’s war on science threatens ‘moonshots’ to cure cancer and other diseases

    An urgent need and an ominous trend are poised to collide, and the results for public health in the United States could be catastrophic. The need is to accelerate transformational breakthroughs in medical research targeting chronic diseases like Alzheimer’s and cancer. But the trend opposing it is a growing climate of suspicion, and even hostility, toward science. On Feb. 12, President Donald Trump released the 2019 Health and Human Services budget proposal. And while Trump’s initial proposal to slash the National Institutes of Health’s budget by 27 percent has been rejected, the latest proposal still doesn’t offer much hope: With an additional $538 million slated for the NIH over 2017, its $34.8 billion budget is roughly equal to the 2017 level, yet Congress is calling for the creation of three new institutes to be integrated into the NIH. This threatens to thin funds even more.

    CNN criticizing “thoughts and prayers”, that “has reached that full semantic satiation” (repeated so often it loses its meaning)…kind of like their “reporting”.

    CNN: How ‘thoughts and prayers’ became a cynical meme

    In the hours and days after a teenager shot and killed 17 people last week at his former high school in Parkland, Florida, “thoughts and prayers” was trending on social platforms. It wasn’t the good kind of trending. Among the earnest pleas for social and legislative action were more and more memes and cynical jokes. In one highly-shared image, “Thoughts and Prayers” is imprinted on the side of a garbage truck. Another meme shows an empty van. “Excellent news,” it reads. “The first truckload of your thoughts and prayers has just arrived.” Jokes, mere hours after a deadly shooting? To the voices behind the dark humor, the persistence of “thoughts and prayers” is the real joke.

Lee did so after Trump called for people to report threats in the wake of the Florida school shooting. “We have an analogous situation with a dangerous leader who has access to far more lethal weapons than an AR-15,” Lee wrote in an op-ed for the New York Daily News Monday. “Following the President’s words, I am reporting again to authorities, both as a citizen and a mental health professional, and making a record here.” Lee spoke with a group of Democratic lawmakers and one GOP senator in December about Trump’s mental state. She has not examined Trump, but has repeatedly questioned his mental states.

    Michael Moore, the polemical filmmaker who has long accused President Trump of colluding with Russians, posted videos and pictures of himself participating in a protest in Manhattan that was allegedly organized by Russians in November 2016. Prosecutors said Friday that the Russians indicted for meddling in the presidential campaign were also behind anti-Trump rallies that occured after the election. The government alleged in an indictment signed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller that the defendants organized a Nov. 12 “Trump is NOT my President” rally in New York. Their “strategic goal” was to “sow discord in the U.S. political system,” the indictment said. On Nov. 12, Moore tweeted: “At today’s Trump Tower protest. He wouldn’t come down.” He attached a picture of himself posing with a large number of protesters.

    Seven South Korean tourists attempted to smuggle blocks of gold into Japan at the end of January by hiding them in their rectums, according to aviation industry sources.

    The suspects, all women in their 50s and 60s, were traveling from Incheon International Airport, South Korea, to Chubu Airport here. Metal objects were detected in their abdomen by X-rays and other inspections at customs.

    The objects were found to be roundish-shaped blocks of gold sealed inside transparent bags. Each woman had concealed between five and eight items weighing about 200 grams each, which were confiscated by customs inspectors.

    The airport’s customs bureau intends to fine the women for smuggling and avoiding paying consumption taxes on imported goods. The gold will be returned to them if they pay the penalties.
