People still believe the Russia hoax. Check out twitter. Full of random people shouting Russia at anything. Look at the attacks on anyone on the left who says Tara Reade's claim should be looked into. You will find that person called a russian bot.

This made me understand the lockdown protestors. Not to say COVID is a hoax, because I don't think that. Yet I do comprehend how people who saw the Russia thing as a hoax, had it proven to be a hoax and also had a "conspiracy against Trump" proven in the process would be willing to think a virus spread is being faked. When there's so many "respectable" views that will punish them for believing something shown to be true then what pushback would scare them away from believing anything new is a giant bit of state run media theatre? You simply can't mock people you just mocked for being right.

Wasn't there a socialist or a communist who said that if you repeated a lie often enough people would believe it? Was it Saul Alinsky?
Nope your thinking of a Nazi. Goebbels the propaganda master. I think this attempted coup may have more in common with national socialism than communism.

Kind of crazy to have it all laid out like this. I must admit, I bought into the Russia collusion narrative hook line and sinker through 2017 and probably mid-2018 when I started really reading past headlines and look into things for myself.

Jr. attempted to collude and the Russian contacts backed off. That pretty much sums it up. Sad part is we didn't need a bunch of congressional hearings to figure that one out, he released the email himself before the NYT could do it for him. It started and ended right there, without Trump even being involved as far as anyone can tell, much less prove and since there was no follow through who cares? Was probably Jr. being an idiot and somebody a tiny bit smarter/wiser stopped it.

Everybody knew that the whole russia thing was a scape coat to deflect their own failures.

After that it was just a shit show after another shit show to see what sticked to get back into power again or get trump out of power. That's all they cared about.

Just look at there nominee biden, how absolutely shocking.

There’s definitely some truth, and that’s likely Russian influences in social media. However they didn’t rig it for Trump to win, rather Russia does what they do best, create chaos and use it to their benefit.
The whole “Trump is owned by Russia” was always an eye roll

Just finished the video in its entirety and yeah it’s pretty much what everyone outside the McCarthyite bubble the Left has lived in for the last 4 years has been saying. It was abuse at and from the highest levels of the intelligence community crafting lies to create a narrative. People should have hanged for this. Comey should be in jail. Strzock should be in jail. Page should be in jail.

Not for what they did to Flynn or Trump, but for what they did to the country. And it should terrify the shit out of each and every one of us because if they could do it to them, imagine what they could do to little people like us. This was government abuse Distilled down to its purest form, and there’s no doubt that what they were trying to do was to undo a fair and legal election, and again that should scare the fucking shit out if all of us. This is the kind of shit that happens in banana republics, it’s not supposed to happen here.

If Durham cares about this country, the rule of law, and free and fair elections, he’ll hand down indictments this summer

EDIT:

Dershowitz weighs in. I completely agree with him.

Everyone didn’t know it, that’s the thing. Polls still show people in the country think Trump’s guilty of Russian conspiracy. This was modern day McCarthyism; there’s no other way to put it. Except for the fact that they knew there were no Russians all along. They created a red scare where there was none.

This article on Wray raises interesting concerns about him being in on the game as well given his unwillingness to participate in the process of putting everything out in the sunlight. Wray's public castigation of Nunes is sickening given the recent facts that have surfaced regarding the FISA process and ensuing warrants. Wray should be the one screaming for heads and instead his silence is deafening after hearing of the flat corruption in the FBI and its abuses of processes and civil rights.

Wray needs to answer questions and get out of the way, or be fired and replaced with someone competent and uncompromised. The time for games has passed.

it really is amazing when you consider the facts and the conspiracy we are supposed to buy into. 50k Facebook ads somehow deafeated the ENTIRE global media complex.

we are talking a billion, maybe even trillion dollar, industry, toppled because someone bought 50k worth of Facebook ads. if anything it just demonstrates how utterly useless the media is. i mean, i could get together that much money! that is saying that i could literally change the outcome of the presidential election and compete against Mike Bloomberg, all for the cost of a brand new Lexus.

really, the whole thing is one giant excuse. the media-political class royally fucked up in 2016, but they want no accountability, and Hillary showed them the way to avoid losing any credibility, JUST BLAME RUSSIA.

see the media was convinced that by "controlling the narrative" they controlled people's voting preferences. you saw this in the way Dem message board supporters talked, as if educating people through media would win the election. they bought into their own hype. when Hillary was chosen, every paper in the country endorsed her, even longtime papers who had never endorsed any candidate. she was chosen by them, yet she utterly failed. how could this be? was their power just an illusion? no, it's the people who were wrong!

unable to accept the fact that narrative is an ever shifting ever changing thing that has no permanent value or meaning, they instead clung to the fantasy even harder. it's the sunk cost fallacy. this is typical of doomsday cultists. when the end of the world comes and goes in a doomsday cult, the cultists will double down, rather than admit defeat. the media is a doomsday cult and Trump was their apocalypse.

I wonder if the FBI actually leaked the Clinton emails? If what Matte says is true and Papa G never even mentioned emails and that was seemingly made up by either the media or the FBI it really makes you think.

The social media posts by alleged russian bot farms were mostly mimicking basic clickbait. It was on both sides of the political spectrum and designed to drum up clicks via outrage or emotional reaction.

Which is to say, it was like Teen Vogue or any clickbaity nonsense website. And the impressions of these pages and twitter accounts were miniscule in relation to average social media activity. They also continued after the election because their main purpose was likely just mischief and click creation to sell for ads. I do find it hilarious some people went to a fake meet up that was created just so some trolls could make facebook bucks.

It kind of feels like...there continues to be this battle going on behind the scenes. The timing of the virus is mad suspect - as stupid as it might sound, I have a strong feeling if Hillary has won it wouldn’t have happened.

Anyhoo, tinfoil aside - I do wonder if the absolute chaotic timing of this stuff is on purpose. All of this stuff is old newsif you paid attention but for 3+ years it’s been frustrating being like “how do you let Flynn and Stone go to prison for nothing when it’s obviously horse shit?”

To me it’s starting to feel like another one of those things that is being handled for the most impact possible.

Well looks like impeachment 3 is starting to gear up with Rick Bright.

Lefty's are already falling for it again. The usuals on here that we have gotten to know will start pimping the Rick Bright story, completely oblivious to how they fell for the Russian hoax, Covington, Jussi Fruit, and the Ukrainina hoaxs.

His story is even goofier - he thinks there is some sort of conspiracy around chloroquine, beyond no one actually doing a serious study on it.

He also signed the EUA for HCQ.

And he is being represented by Ballsy Fords lawyer. So they took Brights case over Tara Reade's case.

DNC and Leftist media are now hitching their ride onto Bright and going full court press on this. This is almost as pathetic as Ukraine gate.

But leftist will follow anything thats against Trump. They fell for the Russian hoax and now here we go again.

So he signed off on the use of a drug he later says that he, as Scientistman, said was always unscientific. That should be enough to torpedo his credibility, but that fact will get hid until hearings where he can get confronted with it directly. Not to mention he sounds like an abusive psycho boss, so we might get a repeat of Strzok's crazed performance.
