US Government Threatens to Intervene in Election - The Fix Is In

    RJ Schwartzposted 4 weeks ago

    In an unprecedented turn of events, the United States government is warning that it will launch cyber attacks if the government suspects Russian involvement in the U.S. elections.
    A frantic article appeared Friday night on NBC News called “U.S. Government Hackers Ready To Hit Back if Russia Tries To Disrupt Election.”

    In the article, U.S. government sources clearly warn of the possibility of cyberwar with Russia in the near future. The article foreshadows a new likely talking point: that U.S. government hacker interference in the election is necessitated by supposed Russian aggression.

    Sounds more like a carefully planned smokescreen to make sure Obama's legacy remains - if Hillary isn't in office, then his legacy is kaput.   

    The bureaucracy is breaking down and the panic is setting in.

        Not a Hillary fan, but that link says National Enquirer. You aren't likely to get any traction with that one.

    This IS the weirdest election cycle I've ever seen . R.J. ,   By now most people see clearly where all of the corruption lies. Obama out there talking up Hilary , both of them morally corrupt , , Hilary the least charismatic candidate to ever exist ,  Trump , the totally unpracticed outsider worrying everybody .  I hope Trump does win and Drain the entire D.C. swamp.      The DNC  slop , the RNC silence , the GOP   waiting in the shadows.   What a messy cycle.

    And everybody waiting for the American voter to speak.

      Can you ever recall a time that everyone in the beltway was against one candidate as they are trump?  Amazing level of fear being telegraphed - I'm with you, drain it

        I sound like an old curmudgeon but , we need to raise the voting and  military service age .
        We Need to make some changes .
        -young people today  don't know their history .
        - have no socio-political maturity
        - don't have media maturity
        - Political liberal candidates target their votes for these very reasons

          Well said but raising the ages won't fix it, best start with the education system - that is where all these things should be taught...and retaught.

            Unfortunately it is the teachers and professors with the biggest amount  bias and stupidity . We must re-educate the teachers  and drag them away from socialist indoctrination   !   before we can make that system  neutral  and effective again .

            The utter failure and lack of effectiveness in education  today is systematic to the core !

              No just need to implement curriculums that aren't  emaciated representations of education more resembling indoctrination. Today's curriculums are a joke, little is taught that is practical to living and reasoning in the 21st century, It's training and indoctrination, not education.

                Teach math, science (not global warming) engineering, nursing, trades and drop philosophy, sociology, and the rest of the non-contributing classes - that's a start

                  How about putting phys ed back in public schools and teaching everyday living skills
                  LOGIC AND REASONING
                  PERSONAL FINANCE,
                  RELATIONSHIPS (Communicating your feelings without blaming or judging each other; how to spot manipulative behavior and cut it off; personal boundaries and not being a pushover; honest discussions about sexuality and how it relates (or doesn’t relate) to love; consent and how the experiences of men and women differ)
                  SELF-AWARENESS (the ability to think about how you think. It’s the ability to have feelings about your feelings. To have opinions about your opinions)
                  SKEPTICISM (how not to be DUPED)

                  Today basically none or the opposite of these are what is taught

                    Personal finance won't work for liberals - they only know how to spend other people's money

    The 26th Amendment to the Constitution guaranteed people age 18 and older the right to Vote.  It was proposed and passed in 1971, while Richard M. Nixon was President.

    Ironic in some way?

      Comey has just showed the voting public how things get "taken care of" inside the beltway - wonder which one of his family was "talked to?"
