I ran across an interesting Daily Kos link to a Cracked News rundown of the trump/russia connection to date https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/7/15/1681031/-Cracked-com-outlines-the-Trump-Russia-scandal. It is a nice compendium of facts that might help people who have not been following this closely the background and chronology. Not as biting and humorous as the comedy show take downs - and much more compact than Rachel Maddow.

Perhaps you will find it worth watching and sharing!

A written, annotated (linked) timeline by Stephen Harper on Bill Moyer's site. This shows how long (!) these Russian connections are - starting with Trump being introduced to Roger Stone by notorious attorney Roy Cohn in 1989.

The Daily Kos writer that posted this link also notes that Alfa Bank in Moscow and Spectrum Health, owned by Michigan’s powerful Devos family, accounted for 99% of the lookups on the server that was installed at Trump Tower. Links to articles and more:

"Kurt Eichenwald: "Fox Is A Propaganda Network Aiding And Abetting The Russians""
https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/7/17/1681252/-Kurt-Eic ... The-Russians

Eichenwald makes clear that Russia's hacking is an act of war. To ignore this act of war is the aid and abet the perpetrators.
"We're talking about a situation seems like nobody understands what happened --certainly not Fox News. We had, we were subject to an act of war. This was not some little computer problem. This act of war has been done by Russia against England, the Netherlands, it has been done against Italy, it has been done against France.
The whole quote on that page is totally worth reading.

All interesting. When everything comes out & tied together, it's going to be something.

I haven't been around here much 'cause I'm spending so much time reading the news.

This guy has some interesting things to say. Especially today. All taken with a grain of salt.

Links to many of these ties. An education in itself.

Seems to me you posted a link to Daily Kos many months ago - in the late fall? - which was the first I'd heard about the Russia connection.

Everything that has been happening needs to be seen within this context:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Russia Is Supporting White Nationalist Groups Here & in Europe

Russia wants the European Union and NATO to fall apart and for Europe and America to devolve into divided, hostile, nationalistic, identity countries. The EU, NATO, and American/European alliances are counterbalances to Russian power. The lack of unity and coherence in Europe would weaken it against Russia. Likewise, if the US is taken over by Nationalists who are anti-globalists, anti-EU, and anti-Nato, this weakens US global power and US power over Russia. Russia also wants to weaken the US by causing dissension, disunity, and chaos in the US. The more divided we are and the more distracted we are by the problems we have to attend to at home, the weaker we are against Russia and the Russian activities around the world. If the US and Europe are weakened globally, Russia can rise again in power.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Russia's been doing this for a long time but they've never been so bold. They're pros at it. With everything going on we have to keep in mind that chaos and division within our country is their goal. And we've been played big time in this election & its aftermath.


The counter protest in Boston has been estimated at 40,000.

I agree with the observations I would add the US made mistakes when the USSR fell apart. Reagan wanted to gloat, wanted to yell from the highest mountain the US won the cold war, and for way too long a period. We made demands we shouldn't have made because we could.

Boris Yeltsin came out of nowhere to fill a vacuum,. He wasn't the best person for the interests of the USSR's people. I'm no fan of the USSR or Russia, but we kind of kicked them when they were down. Putin believes in payback, among a host of other messed up things. Some of this could have been avoided. We never learn.

I'm reposting a link to the Moyer's timeline of all this stuff. So interconnected. So bad.

So. Much. Evidence.

Ok, my husband wants me to ask you if we have a Russian poster on this site - posting guinea pig propaganda - posing as, let's see, a Missourian.

This is a joke. Husband's joke.
