On February 21, the NYTimes and CNN issued a headline that read Russia was trying to help Trump get elected based on a few statements by an “intelligence official.” That night, the headlines read that the Feds say Russia is helping Bernie Sanders, and they have briefed Sanders, the President, and members of Congress.
“Putin is a thug. He may be a friend of Donald Trump, but he’s no friend of mine.” Bernie Sanders
Yesterday the Russians were trying to elect Donald Trump. Today they’re trying to give the election to Bernie. Do you smell a rat? In the last election the DNC actively snubbed Sanders, rigging their convention to kill his chances of the nomination. Is that what’s happening here?
Remember when Sanders supporters walked out in 2016? Is this a new ploy by the Democrats to paint a “Russian collusion” for him as well using the media? This year Sanders supporters threatened to “burn down” the DNC if he didn’t win. Which is more worrisome – anarchists in our midst or Russian bots?
The Daily Wire reported,
Federal officials have notified socialist Bernie Sanders that Russia is trying to boost his presidential campaign in an effort to impact who becomes the Democrats’ presidential nominee…Top officials “have repeatedly warned that Russia has ongoing plans to interfere in U.S. elections and foster divisions among Americans, part of a strategic goal to undermine U.S. standing in the world.
The Washington Post reported that President Donald Trump and other top lawmakers on Capitol Hill have been informed about Russia’s efforts to boost Sanders…Top officials “have repeatedly warned that Russia has ongoing plans to interfere in U.S. elections and foster divisions among Americans, part of a strategic goal to undermine U.S. standing in the world,” The Post reported. “Some analysts believe that the Kremlin’s goal is to cause the maximum disruption within the United States, and it throws the support of its hackers and trolls behind candidates based on that goal, not any particular affinity for the persons running.”
The Washington Post reported. OK.
Sanders has long been a fan of the old Soviet Union and Cuba – straight up Communists. At least this “Russia boost” would make more sense than wanting Donald Trump to be reelected. It’s still suspect.
Russians Russians Russians. Cyber attacks, hacking, election “interference,” propaganda distribution, all of it occurs on a minute to minute basis all across the world. It occurs in all countries and by all countries. China’s a little busy these days, but they do it too on a massive scale.
Make no mistake: even if the Feds say Russia is helping someone, come November 3, no Russian is going into the voting booth with us. And we aren’t fooled by the government or the media’s constant yammering about them. #MAGA2020
