Media Yawns: Facebook Admits to Congress that Russia Tried to Ruin Trump

Did you know that the Russians actually put forth a huge effort to convince the American people the the recently elected President Donald Trump had no business being moving to the White House, and actually sought to de-legitimize his win in 2016?

If you didn’t know, don’t feel bad. The Establishment Media has either given this bombshell news either scant attention, if not completely ignored it.

With the Swamp Democrats and their GOP Establishment allies, along with their always reliable media stooges, this up-to-date Axis of Evil has done everything in their power to persuade the people that evil Donald Trump was secretly colluding with equally evil Vladimir Putin to steal the presidential election from the virginal Hillary Clinton.

But amazingly enough, Facebook’s general counsel attorney Colin Stretch testified before the Senate’s Judiciary Committee’s Crime and Terrorism Subcommittee, the Democrat and RINO narrative has been turned on its head.

As reported by Politico’s Nancy Scola and Ashley Gold (emphasis mine);

Top lawyers from Facebook and Twitter said Tuesday that Russian-linked posts and advertisements placed on the social networks after Election Day sought to sow doubt about President Donald Trump’s victory.

Facebook general counsel Colin Stretch told a Senate Judiciary panel that content generated by a Russian troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency after Nov. 8 centered on “fomenting discord about the validity of [Trump’s] election.” That’s a change from Russia’s pre-election activity, which was largely centered on trying to denigrate Hillary Clinton, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said in a January report.

“During the election, they were trying to create discord between Americans, most of it directed against Clinton. After the election you saw Russian-tied groups and organizations trying to undermine President Trump’s legitimacy. Is that what you saw on Facebook?” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) asked at the hearing.

Stretch and his Twitter counterpart, Sean Edgett, called that an “accurate” statement.

However as NewsBusters.org reporter Kyle Drennen published, the big three network news channels failed to objectively and honestly report the unvarnished news as it was breaking on Capitol Hill (emphasis mine);

While the broadcast networks all eagerly hyped social media executives being hauled before Congress on Tuesday to testify about Russian interference in the 2016 election, only CBS covered a revelation from the hearing that Russia sought to undermine Donald Trump’s legitimacy as president after the campaign was over.

On Tuesday, The Hill reported a specific example of how Russian-backed groups worked to undermine Trump immediately after the election. A left-wing protest against the then-President-elect was attended by thousands of demonstrators outside Trump Tower on November 12, 2016 and was “organized by the Facebook page for BlackMattersUS, a Russian-linked group that sought to capitalize on racial tensions between black and white Americans.”

At least CBS noted the fact that the President was a target of Russian propaganda, NBC and ABC didn’t bother to include that detail in their coverage of the hearing. Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News had a full report on the testimony and Wednesday’s Today show offered a 25-second news brief on how “officials from Facebook and Google and Twitter took a lashing from lawmakers over Russia’s involvement in last year’s presidential election.”

Cry Havoc: Trump Unleashes CIA Hunter-Killer Groups in Afghanistan

Very quietly, very behind the scenes, President Trump has let slip the dogs of war against the Taliban, al-Qaeda and ISIS in Afghanistan.

And by dogs of war, I mean CIA hunter-killer teams heavily augmented by military Special Operations personnel.

So what will these CIA “paramilitary and contractors” along with a handful of quite lethal Leathernecks and GIs be up to? Long story short, lightning quick assaults on jihadist leadership as well as bombmakers.

As reported by The Daily Caller;

CIA paramilitary forces are expanding partner operations in Afghanistan to hunt and kill high level Taliban operatives, The New York Times reports.

These CIA missions will reportedly include both paramilitary personnel of the CIA along with U.S. special operations forces detailed to the agency for specific missions. The use of special operations forces allows hunter killer teams to call in air support, if necessary, as they hunt Taliban bomb-makers across the country.

The loosening of restrictions on CIA ground operations in Afghanistan is part of a broader push by President Donald Trump’s administration to accelerate pressure on Taliban militants. Trump previously loosened CIA drone strike rules in Afghanistan that will now allow for some civilian casualties relative to the importance of the target.

Also reported by the Washington Examiner, more specifics on how President Trump, Secretary Mattis, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joe Dunford, USMC, plan to crush the jihadists;

Mattis and Dunford looked at the performance of the Afghan military and determined that special forces units and other troops with embedded U.S. advisers usually won, while conventional Afghan troops often lost. So a key aspect of the plan is to put U.S. or NATO advisers with all the Afghan forces on the front lines. That means sending another 3,000 or so U.S. troops, and several thousand more from other NATO countries. Those troops will accompany the Afghan forces into the field, and — this is a critical change — they will be authorized to call in U.S. and coalition airstrikes to support the ground operations. “Make no mistake, this is combat duty, but the Afghan forces remain in the lead to do the fighting,” Mattis said.

How is it different? Under President Barack Obama, the U.S. was operating under the pretense that combat operations with the Taliban ended in 2014, and U.S. offensive strikes were limited to cases of self-defense, or when the Taliban were close enough to present a direct threat. Afghan forces were left on their own, with no air cover to battle the Taliban, often taking heavy casualties. Now Mattis has taken the gloves off. There are no restrictions on airpower, and no requirement for “proximity” to provide close air support. “We did not give the young Afghan boys the sense that they had the high ground when they were fighting against this enemy, that the NATO air support could have given them,” Mattis said. “Today, I can bring that air support to them.”

The other big change: There is no timetable for victory, no announced withdrawal date, so the Taliban cannot just wait out the U.S. “There was always a sense that the United States was going to pull out in 12 months,” Dunford told the Senate panel. “And the Taliban, frankly, fed that message to their fighters, and that’s how they motivated their people year after year, was, ‘One more year in a fight, and then we’re going to defeat the coalition. They are going to leave Afghanistan.’”

Interestingly enough, word is on the streets that small (less that 100 Marines per detachment) and highly mobile Marine artillery units will be peppered across the country to respond at a moment’s notice for “thunder from the sky”.

Even more interesting, Marines from the 6th ANGLICO (Air and Naval Gunfire Liaison Company) have spent the last seven months in Germany training the 31st Georgian Light Infantry Battalion on the intricacies of calling-in pin-point airstrikes and artillery fire missions.

Also reported is that when the Georgians deploy to Afghanistan, a number of Marines from 6th ANGLICO will deploy with the 31st;

The role of the 6th ANGLICO SALT (Supporting Arms Liaison Team) was to serve as the battalion’s fire support coordination center and to plan, coordinate, and execute surface to surface fires, air to surface fires, and assault support in support of the battalion’s mission. These Marines will also deploy to Afghanistan with the 31st Georgian Light Infantry Battalion in October, 2017.

Surprisingly reported by the reliably hard-Leftist New York Times, the CIA’s new director Mike Pompeo was quoted expressing an opinion that Generals Kelly and Mattis would be proud of;

“We can’t perform our mission if we’re not aggressive,” Mr. Pompeo said at a security conference this month at the University of Texas. “This is unforgiving, relentless. You pick the word. Every minute, we have to be focused on crushing our enemies.”

Huffington Post: White NFL Players Who Stand for Anthem ‘Stand for White Supremacy’

The Huffington Post op-ed writer who touts himself as Dad, partner, engaged citizen, opinionated writer, leftist, PhD student, can add another add another descriptive title to his pedigree: Dumb-ass.

As Jesse Benn of the decidedly hard leftist Huffington Post recently opined;

The absence of white athletes kneeling for the anthem Sunday was a particularly illustrative moment in white privilege.

See, for white athletes the anthem and American flag do represent freedom, liberty and whatever other amorphous American values one might ascribe these symbols. So, from their view, kneeling would be disrespectful to the privileges a white supremacist nation affords them.

Notice the very first word in the second paragraph? “See”.

Ever the pencil-necked liberal, Benn made a point of:

  1. Looking down his nose at us simpletons to explain to us why any given player of the Caucasian persuasion who has the bad manners to actually stand for the Star Spangled Banner and place his hand over his heart is actually a closeted cross burner.
  2. In a largely wasted effort, Benn takes a stab at proving how much smarter he is than the rest of us.

Ahh… but then comes the height of Leftist arrogance (emphasis mine);

We’ve all heard the typical argument against kneeling. “Kneeling during the anthem disrespects the flag and the soldiers who fought for your right to protest and blah blah blah patriotism!

Now, I’m not going to spend much time with the most obvious counter, but it’s worth stating. In the fairytale we Americans tell ourselves where soldiers fight wars for freedom and not imperial conquests, the story says they’re fighting for someone’s right to protest, not the opposite. So using the troops as a cudgel against protest wholly misunderstands even our own national fairytale.

So, that’s obvious enough, but what I’m talking about is this. If white athletes can’t fathom kneeling because they feel soldiers fought for their rights and blah blah blah patriotism, it’s because they are treated as full citizens and afforded those rights they imagine soldiers fought for.

Initially, did anyone notice any uniformed goons dragging Benn out of his undoubtedly comfortable bed in the middle of the night to lock him up in some far off American gulag?

Neither did I.

Secondly, why didn’t someone tell me that I, like my father before me, am nothing more than a baby killer? I don’t remember killing any babies, neither did my father.

Ach… silly me. Benn’s smarter than the rest of of. (*Slapping forehead* What was I thinking!?)

But if the name Jesse Benn rings a bell, it should. He’s the guy with a history of calling for organized violence aimed at those who disagree with him.

As reported last June by the Washington Free Beacon;

HuffPost writer Jesse Benn tweeted Wednesday that violent resistance must be organized to work.

Benn wrote that violent resistance needed to be organized and that individual acts of resistance were “counterproductive/ineffective,” but still understandable.

This is not the first time Benn has advocated for violence. Benn wrote a June 2016 article titled, “Sorry Liberals, a Violent Response to Trump Is as Logical as Any.” In the article, Benn said there was value in violently resisting the “normalizing” of then-candidate Donald Trump.

“In the face of media, politicians, and GOP primary voters normalizing Trump as a presidential candidate—whatever your personal beliefs regarding violent resistance—there’s an inherent value in forestalling Trump’s normalization,” Benn wrote. “Violent resistance accomplishes this.”

Speaking of Benn’s Twitter account, how do you like the last symbol at the end of his bio?

Raising a rebel. Married to #1 mom. Sporadic writer. Member of the Tribe. PhD student. No war but class war. Eat the rich. ☭

Here’s also an example of Benn’s alleged sense of humor (notice the hammer and sickle dead-center of the cartoon);

And if by chance you’re on the fence regarding Comrade Benn, this is what he tweeted in the wake of the assassination attempt on Congressman Steve Scalise;

What a charmer.

Al Sharpton shows the world he ain’t got no ig’nance

Freak Out! Al Sharpton in the attack mode. (Youtube)

Al Sharpton is the gift that just keeps giving. No matter how many rich white liberals keep putting the “Reverend” without a church on television, Sharpton just keeps making himself look, well… stupid.

Never one to shy away hucksterism and shameless self-promotion, be it at the expense of Tawana Brawley or hawking car title loans aimed at poor people (at 300 percent interest), count on Reverend Al to have the shine of the camera lights on him.

But here’s what I consider the most glaringly obvious first clue to anyone with even half a brain as to what a complete fraud this guy is — his inability to intelligently speak the English language.

Case in point: While speaking before an audience at the New Mount Pilgrim Missionary Baptist Church in West Garfield Park, located on the West Side of Chicago, IL, the good Reverend launched into his standard tirade against President Trump.

Possibly at the regret of every person on the planet who values a good education, reporter Kyle Becker of the Independent Journal Review notes other than his usual anti-Trump screed, Sharpton recently whipped himself up into another of his glassy-eyed hissy fits, but this time it was aimed directly at the president’s eldest daughter, Ivanka.

In what could best be described as unworthy of a fourth grade drop-out;

“They say now she ain’t got no title. She ain’t got no role. We ain’t payin’ her no money. But she can see everything classified.”

Granted, the Grammar Police should have immediately booked him on multiple counts of attempted murder of the Mother Tongue.

Seriously, is even a count or two of felonious use of double-negatives with intent to dumb-down asking too much?

Another example of Sharptonisms at their best would be during the Trayvon Martin controversy, the MSNBC court jester was quoted as eruditely stating (see video below);

Don’t talk to us like we stupid, don’t talk to us like we ig’nint.

Other than dumping verbs faster than CNN distances themselves from anything even remotely resembling objective journalism, Sharpton’s on the fly grammatic contractions (ie: Ghettoese) are actually quite impressive… in a snake oil salesman kind of way.

Ahh, but this isn’t the first time Sharpton dazzled the world with his ig’nince of the Queen’s English.

As opined at New Jersey’s Kean College in 1994:

White folks was in caves while we was building empires.

We [blacks] taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.

I’m not exactly sure why Sharpton would be bragging about blacks teaching paganistic astrology. You think he might have meant “astronomy”?
