Donald Trump Win’s With Russia’s Help – Some Love Stories Never Die.

 

In the latest news to break the wire it would appear that the FBI is now seeking to learn more about just why Russia wired close to $400K to its embassies around the world in August and September of last year with a memo subtly titled “to finance election campaign of 2016.”

Did they really go that far in an attempt to get Trump elected? I mean if you’re going to call a spade a spade you might as well do it so let’s be completely honest here.

The way Russia meddled in the election was by far more superior than just wiring money not to mention that anyone can just toss money at an election and walk away with it. I almost want to ask how stupid anyone could be for thinking they’d make a fatal error such as wiring money anywhere in an attempt to get Trump elected.

And to be fair, Russia also had an election back in September of 2016 so I am honestly a little shocked that the FBI would even want to touch this.

I supposed their is something to be said for leaving no stone unturned however.

My guess is that this will turn up very little if not just nothing.

Vladimir Putin

Not to mention that Russia was already winning the US election by August of last year so really they would have had no need to add funding to it.

I give Putin a lot of credit for how ingenious Russia was in it’s meddling with the US election last year, I doubt very much he and the Kremlin found any need to send money to it, not to mention that the transfer of any funds is actually pretty traceable when one is wiring them.

I almost want to laugh at the FBI for wanting to look into these transfers but I also want to laugh at the mainstream media who ran with the headlines that seemed to sell the story as if Russia funded the entire Trump campaign.

Then on the other side of the table we have Jeff Sessions wanting to open up an investigation into Clinton and the uranium deal, where some cash sort of flowed from the Clinton foundation towards the deal.

All of that said, the aim on that is to kill two birds with one stone, take down Hillary Clinton and then to discredit any findindings that Robert S Mueller III and his team find that might actually tie Trump to any Russian Collusion.

Basically, Trump and his dream team are shitting themselves as Mueller’s investigations winds its way so much closer to each one of them.

All in all it’s a lot like a Novella the only difference is that in this Novella, it’s a the expense of taxpayers.

Putin the Master Manipulator

Russia-fake-social-media-crimeShop

Trump Being Played?

 

Well it is one of the oldest tricks in the book and truthfully it does appear that Trump is allowing Putin to manipulate and control him.

Trump-Russia-Dossier-CrimeShop

But you don’t have to take just my word for it, former CIA director John Brennan and former National Intelligence director James Clapper seem to agree with that assumption. It’s an assumption that many of us have asserted for the better part of this last year on multiple occasions.

John Brennan

Both men seemed to agree that “President Trump is likely being manipulated by Russian president Vladimir Putin and other foreign governments.”

james-clapper-us-intelligence-CrimeShop.jpg

I cannot disagree with that, what I am not so sure of however, is whether or not Trump is blindly being manipulated or if he actually realizes what is going on and is allowing it to happen?

It is much easier to save face in the end through all of the lies, deceit and made up stories if you were the innocent victim of a ruthless game where it could be perceived that you may have been played by others.

us-election-russia-hack-crimeshop

The reality here is that even though we all make fun of Trump’s ineptitude one really has to sit down at the end of the day and question whether or not the man is really that inept or if he himself is playing the game just as much as Putin is?

We may never know the truth about that.

James-Comey-Crime-Shop

Trump’s name calling, for instance he called John Brennan, James Clapper and former FBI Director James Comey, “political hacks” over the weekend, and while most of us knock him for behaving like a child, call him a moron, inept, the fact that he continues to call people names, tweet insults at anyone that he can shows a more telling tale of his mental frame of mind.

You can literally see exactly who and what he is every time he tweets or speaks off the cusp.

For all of his bragging while on his Asia trip, he may want to chill that roll back just a step or two and listen to what others are actually seeing, because he is not as well liked or respected as he’d care to believe or have any of us believe.

Just because he was treated with kindness does not mean he is in anyway respected at all. It’s politics folks, that is the black and white of it.

Trump is however known as the President of the United States that Russia got elected, and he is known as the President of the United States that is a willing partner when it comes to being played and manipulated by foreign countries.

That is precisely what Trump is known for worldwide and that does not equal respect.

FBI, Democrats and Russia Are Co-Conspirators?

 

Trump interacts with reporters as he welcomes Vietnam's Nguyen in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington

 

Trump’s new take on things

 

Trump comes up with some good ones sometimes, now he is suggesting that the FBI, Democrats and Russia are co-conspirators.

 

Mueller-CrimeShop

 

Which is funny because you simply cannot argue why Russia would meddle in the 2016 Presidential Election, it was not to get Hillary Clinton voted into office, that so very clear.

They were aiming to get a more agreeable and controllable president elected.

It was just a bonus that it ended up highlighting just how divided America is, not to mention it really did bring to surface a lot of problems our country has that we tend to want to sweep under the rug.

 

Trump-Russia-Dossier-CrimeShop

 

One really has to sit down and ponder why Trump would outrageously suggest that the FBI, Democrats and Russia would all somehow get together, make it possible for Trump to win the election, then and this is what gets me, do everything that they can to get him removed from office.

I would really love to be inside of his brain as he puts these thoughts together so that I could honestly gain a better understanding.

Anyway, this is his tweet from this morning:

“Workers of firm involved with the discredited and Fake Dossier take the 5th. Who paid for it, Russia, the FBI or the Dems (or all)?”

In reference to the dossier that a former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele released and take note, not all of the information in the dossier has even been proven to be true, yet some of it actually has been proven to be true.

The FBI did at one point in the fall of 2016 offer to actually pay Christopher to help them in the FBI’s own Russian investigation however, when the dossier was made public the FBI actually pulled the plug on that entire idea.

Trump has always denied allegations in the document that the Russian government has collected compromising information about him and was engaged in an active effort to assist his campaign.

Which by the way he has no bloody proof of himself, so we also have that.

At any rate it’s one of those times when you simply cannot resist calling Trump a moron, or slap him and ask him what he might have been thinking when he sent that tweet, that made him feel any remote possible chance, that it would actually work to his benefit?

Here are the facts, Russia did outright meddle in the 2016 Presidential Election, which really did help with getting Trump elected.

 

Putin-Trump-CrimeShop

 

The reasoning behind this is technically yet to be known because I’m looking over at Russia and wondering why this guy, they could have helped any other guy run for office and get elected but this guy?

Maybe to make us suffer?

What makes the most logical sense here though, why would Russia assist with helping Trump win the election and why would Trump argue it with such belligerence that it only highlights his attempts to lie about it.

Furthermore it actually does make the most sense that Russia does in fact have something on Trump that he really does not want the world to know about.

Russia wanted a puppet but they did not count on the job being so full of political red tape so they actually lost what they sought to gain, and left us American’s holding a bag of Trump.

Reddit – Up Next in The Russian Election Probe

Reddit_crimeshop

Social Media and the Russian Election Investigation

 

As we all know, Twitter has had to meet with the Senate Intelligence Committee with regards to the huge Russian influence in the 2016 Presidential Election, now Facebook is in the hot seat and looking forward and onward, it appears that the investigation is leaning towards Reddit next.

russian-election-investigation-crimeshop.jpg

And just where is this intel coming from? Well a little bird who happens to be a representative of Sen. Mark Warner, the committee’s top ranking Democrat.

What is a surprise to me is that Reddit was not first on the list.

Reddit is not shy about who or what they are and they are for sure no strangers to controversy by any means, whatsoever. 

Reddit is after all one of the most popular if not most controversial websites one would peruse for meme’s (I find all of my favorite coffee meme’s on Reddit), but it’s also where viral stories tend to start.

Anonymous users are free to post and share quite a bit although Reddit does have rules, it’s still widely used to spread misinformation.

What’s more is that users take to forums to discuss those feelings, ideas and share input about what is going on in today’s government, which sometimes leads to misinformation being taken as actual fact.

Reddit however has made an honest effort to scale back on the misinformation as well as hate groups on the site which is actually commendable.

In February I believe it was, Reddit actually shut down a channel that was dedicated to a white supremacist group because of repeated violations of the terms of Reddit’s content policy.

Yet, it still doesn’t matter because hate groups tend to rise up and post where they can on the site still.

social_media_legislation-crimeshop

 

And that is the very problem with all of social media, since it’s free to signup and post content where do the social media giants draw the line?

 

social-media-policing-crimeshop.jpg

 

Furthermore why should they be held accountable?

It is after all the end users choice to believe whatever he or she really wants to believe.

While I quite agree that hate speech and hate groups have no business on the sites spreading hate, misinformation and the like, at the end of the day, we cannot and should not expect these social media giants to police everything because the sites are free for you and I to use.

It’s all about you, I, my brother, my dad, the end users making a choice to read and believe in whatever.

 

Social Media Logotype Background

 

I still see hundreds of fake news stories, ad’s and the like on Twitter and Facebook (don’t even get me started on gab),  almost every single day.

At some point, the end user or in this case the end readers have to be held just as accountable for buying into the fake news, the misinformation, the fake ad’s, and everything else.

It makes me just a little sick to my stomach truth be known to see that as a result of all of the Russian meddling through social media, fake news stories, etc, that we are now looking at potential legislation.

Imposing such legislation is like telling these social media outlets, “You are responsible for the American voters who made the choice to believe in the fake news, the fake ads…”

And quite frankly that does not sit well with me at all.

The reason I feel so strongly about this?

I’ll share a secret with you here, I have had some of the worst, I mean worst relationships in my life, most of which left me as part of a person for a very long time.

I blamed my choice to remain in those relationships on anyone and everyone including everything that I could.

I never wanted to take accountability for staying in those relationships, let alone getting into them in the first place.

All of that changed when I was invited to look at a couple of cold cases, I learned that I was better at working with the dead (part of the reason I write a lot about politics) than I was at being part of interpersonal relationships.

So now, try being a man hitting on me, I have actually made chasing men away a rather unique hobby.

I am happier being single because now my only weakness is coffee.

The point behind that story, is that it’s a choice and blame, we all make choices and the only people that we can hold accountable for that, is ourselves.

We cannot blame the social media giants for what happened here, each reader could have done his or her own homework at any time, they simply made the choice not to, and asking social media giants to do that, well it creates a police state, one in which the US Government approves what I am allowed to read, what information I am allowed to see and so on.

It is not a good situation at all because it is opening doors I do not believe the american people, if they really understood it all, would all that happy with.
