Plan the time to take a deep breath and look at Steven Harper’s Interactive Timeline: Everything We Know About Russia and President Trump at Moyers and Company.
When it comes to Donald Trump, his campaign and their dealings with Russia past and present, sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all the players without a scorecard. We have one of sorts — a deeply comprehensive timeline detailing what actually happened and what’s still happening in the ever-changing story of the president, his inner circle and a web of Russian oligarchs, hackers and government officials.
Since first launched in February 2017, the timeline has grown to more than 400 entries — and we will continue to add updates each week.
Putin is much more vulnerable to our (perfectly legitimate) election meddling than our process is to his (criminal) meddling.
Just use social media to get through to Russians (especially young) the exhaustive facts of his kleptocracy and the vileness of his Syrian policy.
No need to knock down Russkie jets that are bombing civilians and risk war. Just follow his planes around with our planes taking pictures of them bombing hospitals, etc., — with follow up reports from the ground (drones?). Let Russians know how their tax rubles are re-establishing national “power and prestige.”
What we have here is an election meddling gap.
I got more than 30 dead opposition pols and journalists who would have disagreed with you about that.
The photo of Stone, Manafort and Atwater in this link is almost surreal.
Let’s not forget Atwater’s political philosophy:
“You start out in 1954 by saying, “Nigger, nigger, nigger.” By 1968 you can’t say “nigger” — that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states’ rights and all that stuff. You’re getting so abstract now [that] you’re talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you’re talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites. And subconsciously maybe that is part of it. I’m not saying that. But I’m saying that if it is getting that abstract, and that coded, that we are doing away with the racial problem one way or the other. You follow me — because obviously sitting around saying, “We want to cut this,” is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than “Nigger, nigger.”
And it worked again.
I’m thinking us — not locals — getting through like old Radio Free Europe but on social media. That’s not blocked somehow — don’t understand the details.
Gotta think: we have an election interference gap. Serious: we did it for Yelstin. Everybody does to/for everybody else. Think Khomeini electing Regan. We’ve been sleeping at the switch.
