DONALD TRUMP IMPEACHED! An American Refreshing Begins.

It’s over and done, folks. Donald Trump has finally been impeached. His wicked plot to attack Joe Biden through his innocent son Hunter, who he felt deserves to be investigated falsely because he was once on the Board of Directors of a Ukrainian power company, has been exposed to ruinous effect, for Trump and the country both.

A commensurate response was called for by our opposition forces, and we gave it to him with both barrels.

Two Articles of Impeachment, one for gross abuse of power and the other for obstructing the Congressional investigation the Democratic House was forced to undertake, have been levied against Donald Trump. He has been duly convicted, and now the trial is heading for the Senate- when the time is right.

Regardless of whether he is dragged out kicking and screaming, neither Trump nor his presidency will ever be the same. Thank the Lord, because America in the Trump Era has been growing tired and stale. We’re going to do him a favor, though, and muck out the stall he has made of the Oval Office. A stagnant swamp is soon to get a freshening, volunteer hours or no, for the day of national justice has finally come.

It’s important to remember that in many ways the fight is just beginning. Okay, great, I can hear somebody saying, joyfully. Trump was a piece of crap and now he’s gone. When can we start helping him pack?

That’s the real question, and it’s something else again. We impeached him, all right. It was a big step, and we did not shirk it when the time came; Democrats have done our best.

But now we’ve got to physically remove him from the White House. That will not prove so simple if we miss our chance at the ballot box.

To vanish an American president by force, we need an Aye vote from two-thirds of a Republican Senate, whose Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky has already vowed to kill the process as soon as he lays hand on it.- at Trump’s “marching orders”. That’s why Nancy Pelosi can’t send this over to the Senate. It will instantly die and take with it the American dream.

Since the time of the Founding Fathers, we have governed according to the principle that no one is above the law, that kingship is a bad dream, that all men are created equal. Discarding that is to toss away America itself. Getting rid of the man himself is the smaller point compared to that.

The sheer damage Trump has already done to America’s sense of self-worth is unreasonably huge and absolutely endless.

Our children bully one another using the president’s language. Hate crimes have skyrocketed; in fact, twenty-seven of them took place the very day Trump was elected. Vladimir Putin’s Russia was given a free hand in the Middle East; he’s ruined us forever and completely over there. The military has been loaned to the Saudi Arabian Prince Mohammed bin Salman to use as a toy, even though he beheaded a Washington Post reporter named Jamal Khashoggi, who is remembered.

After Trump took office, we didn’t make two weeks without disaster. It was pandemonium on seven continents thanks to his moronic travel ban. Like the walls of Babylon, peace and order inside airports were judged apocalyptically and destroyed in a single blundering hour. Every port of air travel on the planet got as choked and clotted and clogged as Trump’s obese arteries. Enough is enough; America needs its self-respect back. We’ve had all we can stands, and we can’t stands no more.

In committing to this repugnant and crooked course of action, Trump threw every American value there is off the cliff and under the bus. He has shown no veneration whatsoever toward the most powerful office in the world, no less his own country’s. He used it as a normal man would dirty socks.

The crooked, lying Republicans, whose capacity to tell the truth has committed hara-kiri, are no better whatsoever. Long after they’ve left office, they will be reviled, and their legacy will be bitterly repudiated. Their names will become curses to be hurled at the failures of tomorrow. With a president like this one, who needs kings?

Going forward, a new chapter of battle begins. Our bullets and swords are our words and ideas, meaning we need Original Content! Fresh memes, fresh articles, fresh anything you can dream up. The act of beginning has magic in it, and the world needs that power now more than ever. #ImpeachAndRemove will all at once be hymn, marching tune, and clarion call for Democrats. We’ll be doing all we can to kick some sparks up; see you on the battlefield.

Don’t forget to bring your Original Content!

 

Impending Impeachment Tuesday- Donald Trump to Get Early Christmas Present.

So as everyone on Planet Earth knows by now, the House Judiciary Committee voted Friday to put to a vote Donald Trump’s articles of impeachment to the full House of Representatives, marking the fourth time a president has faced such a move-three of which have taken place inside of the last fifty years.
Representative Jerry Nadler (D-NY) Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee ended up filing two succinct and irrefutable articles of impeachment on Friday. The first article of impeachment charges Trump with abuse of power, for withholding key military aid from beset Ukraine, and the second is for obstruction of Congress while they have been investigating this whole rotten sordid affair, disgraceful to America and to every last living soul in it.
Coming into the weekend, we might as well have been new aikido students, so beat up were we from the week’s dramatic finisher on Thursday and Friday, two days of grueling debate that resulted in an unexpected delay of the final, fateful vote of the impeachment, now to be held on Tuesday at 10 a.m. Eastern time.
The debates rounded off nearly six months of pure and unadulterated chaos. A calliope atmosphere has carried the country like a psychedelic cyclone turned fearful. 435 Representatives, one after the other, allowed their say in the equivalent of verbal tweets. It felt like busting loose, all at once, like leather pants on today’s Boy George. A single reefer joint and an M.C. Hammer concert might have spontaneously combusted; electrical tension was coming right through every tuned-in screen.
And for what? The whole thing is so tiresome and ridiculous anyway, there has never been a more blatant and corrupt incompetent than him, and the act he’s doing more in life than running one of his dad’s old grocery stores, it’s the ultimate degradation to us all. It’s sad the Republicans have chosen this worn-out sloppy jalopy of a man over truth and American values.

The ghost of pitfighting lawyer Roy Cohn hangs over all, like a rheumy-eyed raven on a pallid bust of Pallas. Concede nothing, stall, obfuscate, countersue, and Trump himself continues to be too moronic to get that the cutthroat Manhattan lawyer approach is like drinking a slow-acting poison for the body politic of America.

He still believes he did nothing wrong in pressuring a foreign country’s head of state government to help him cheaply hamstring Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden, an act which prompted a member of our intelligence community to file a whistleblower’s complaint, the complaint that kicked off this newest chapter of the Russiagate scandal and forced us, Democrats, to file the most justified impeachment there will ever be in this world. He seems to think it’s all just fine.

The rest of the human race, save a few co-opted Republicans, cannot help but entirely disagree.

If only we could impeach all these crooked Republicans, too. What a miserable fate for the Grand Old Party. It’s nothing but a rubber stamp held by the man who is running our democracy into the ground. As Garry Kasparov said back in 2016, the Republican Party died the day Trump took over. Conservatives of principle must start over.

 

A Democratic Letter of Request- Russia’s Invading Buttigieg. Help Me Tell The World.

Attn: The Entire Online Democratic Coalition.
Facebook, USA.
Millennial Democrats.
12/7/19
Dear Democratic Family,
It is my sincere regret to inform you all that the Russians have returned onto America’s political scene. After a nearly three year period of dormancy, they have finished hibernation, and have now popped back up en masse and in earnest in time to get a headstart on the 2020 election cycle. The campaign appears to have just begun and has manifested in a most unusual and unexpected area- the Instagram community of Pete Buttigieg.

This is @potus_pete2020, the Russian hacker whose memes, also in the picture, caught my attention and helped me catch on ahead of schedule.

This was unexpected on every level. We have known the Russians were coming, of course; Vladimir Putin himself told us that. But even so, with characteristic chessplayer cleverness, they still found a niche from where they are almost impossible to see, and they did it in a brand new way. They have never chosen to support a moderate Democrat before, in all the time this has been going on, and it calls into question the persona of this rising blue star.

The Iowa caucus will be held on February 3rd, in less than sixty days from now. Before then, Buttigieg must state openly and strongly that he does indeed intend to prioritize national security, and he must take solid action against these trolls.

In order to get him to do that, this has to be a bigger story than I can make it on my own. Therefore, online Democratic coalition, I have written every one of you this formal letter of request, asking you for help raising national and world awareness about this. Call everyone you know. Do everything you can. The peril is close to absolute.

Slandering Pete Buttigieg, accusing him of anything, or even saying we don’t like him is not our intent. The Russians could be doing this just to disgrace him; we’re not ruling that out at all, nor indeed making any fact claims except the four below. Fact stretching and wild speculation is not in accord with journalistic standards. We draw no conclusions either way save two- Mr. Buttigieg must address this situation quickly, and the media must call on him to do so. That’s the only way we’ll ever know for sure.

Below are the facts that justify my recommendation that we watch him as closely as possible.

1. Pete Buttigieg has Russians infesting his Instagram community. They have mostly been inactive in American politics since Robert Mueller charged their thirteen nationals in 2018 and are actually quite rare. They are in no other platform, which makes sense since Instagram is new and yet has a billion members already. It is also nowhere near as regulated as Facebook and is, therefore, the perfect place for hiding in plain sight, preparing their strike without fear of discovery.

2. Pete Buttigieg is a personal friend of Mark Zuckerberg, a chronic persecutor of Democrats. They went to Harvard together. After they met on October 17 of this year in a highly underpublicized meeting, he hired two staffers at Zuckerberg’s behest. Within another thirty days, Russian trolls with Buttigieg’s name on them appeared and began multiplying prolifically.

3. Pete Buttigieg spoke dismissively when Hillary Clinton put Tulsi Gabbard in the public eye for being a favorite of Russia. “Statements like that ought to be backed by evidence,” he explained.  The Cult Education Forum alone has more than a hundred pages of information on the Gabbard family’s bizarre activities. How is it possible for a guy who is said to have learned the Norwegian language while literally on the toilet to be unaware of this?

Deserving of an Honorable Mention: Pete Buttigieg won an award-winning paper all the way back in the year 2000 about none other than Bernie Sanders and what a great guy he is.

All of these save number three have business with Russia directly. There are too many red flags here to count. An exhaustive vetting process of Pete Buttigieg and his campaign must now be undertaken by the voters. 

We do have one advantage, though like a mirage it will soon be gone. This is less than a month old; they are not well established. Interestingly, in that same 48 hours, the famous Russian troll farm GreenFloid, LLC tried to hack our website for the first time in years. Those are the ones who had held all the fake blacktivist rallies in Florida back then-and showed up heavily armed back then besides. Their reentrance onto the scene is more than just a warning sign.

If he starts early, if we start early, we can get out ahead of this and scatter those trolls like cockroaches, in the process showing the world what the difference is between us and the soon-to-be-impeached Donald Trump. No matter who Russian trolls say they’re for, we don’t want them around, and trying to “drown them out” is far too dangerous; not a sane risk to take after 2016. If Pete Buttigieg disagrees, let him give his reasons why. America deserves to hear them before voting in the Iowa caucus.

Sincerely yours,
The Millennial Democrats.

Why Lying is Bad-Donald Trump’s Impeachment Is Going Forward.

Greetings, readers of recent events! It’s been a while since I’ve had time to stop by here. Here’s a few words about why- and also, a few words as to how it all ties in with the impeachment of Donald Trump, which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced around noon on Thursday would definitely proceed.

Ultimately, what the whole Ukrainegate scandal comes down to is that lying is bad and the illegitimate president lied. Trump is a terrible, unrepentant liar. He’s a totally unfit role model for American children. It’s for their sake that he has got to go.

Here at Millennial Democrats, the anti-disinformation war is central to our very purpose; we call that division MD-DissectFake. It is why we exist. To say, as people are doing in the disinformation age, that the truth no longer matters enough to fight for, and that in fact we now live in a post-truth reality in which Americans no longer value their values, is to speak pure evil and embrace a descent into nihilism and destability. Never that.

We have answered those people firmly today in announcing Trump’s impeachment will go on.

Donald Trump, with his unrepentant falsehoods on the subject of his now-infamous attempt to leverage Ukraine, withholding key funds needed for their war against Russia who has robbed them, has disgraced our country, as have the vitriolic rants against the whistleblower who brought this to America’s attention. Simply stated, this had to be done. No one is above the law in a country without kings, not even the President.

If that is not worth fighting for then nothing is.

Don’t let anyone tell you this is just partisan politics or a witch hunt, either. Pelosi never wanted to impeach Trump. She fought it every way she could for years, and we helped her, because of one key factor. We didn’t have enough yet, which sadly was still the case even after Robert Mueller‘s Russiagate investigation had concluded. Vladimir Putin laughingly said that it was as though a mountain had given birth to a mouse, which of course is what he wants to think.

This is how we know Vladimir Putin is beatable.

What Mueller’s investigation actually was, the perspective time brings us has helped us to understand, represented a vast foundation, something we could build a case upon so big it would one day dwarf Trump Tower.

At the time I predicted that a Donald Trump now flabbergasted with relief would soon find his worst instincts bolstered by an unrestrained ego, one he is nowhere near self-aware enough to realize. I was sure that sooner or later, something would happen where he’d bite off more than he could chew, and go down after all.

Sure enough, it did, and far faster than anyone figured.

When he told the President of Ukraine he needed him to open an unnecessary and spurious investigation into the son of former Vice President and most likely by far 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate Joseph Bissonette Biden, Jr., Trump self-administered a slow-acting poison to his presidency. It is killing him even now.

“I need you to do me a favor though” will prove to be famous last words, like the ones never spoken by the doomed General Custer at the Little Bighorn.

I knew that if that day ever came, the 448-page morass of the Mueller Report (link provided) would be waiting for him, to catch him when he falls. It’ll gather flowers constantly, and will come whenever he calls. The Mueller Report would be there to open his each and every door.

It ain’t me you’re looking for, babe.

Not even close.

The House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday voted to send their own voluminous report on Trump’s conduct to the Judiciary Committee, who in turn will physically write the articles of impeachment against Trump. Oh good, I thought, happy to be heading back up this way. Time to go hit Donald Trump again and topple him, like the statue of the founder of the Cheka, his poll numbers be damned.

I wouldn’t miss this for the world.

The importance of fighting disinformation is to me so basic that it’s engraved in my spirit at this point, and Trump’s horrid Ukraine behavior is the biggest reason why that I can think of. It is all along the same timeline as Russiagate and their interference in our 2020 election. Here at Millennial Democrats, we realize fully the necessity of fighting for the inclusion of honesty in the canon of American values, and I have been preparing.

For the last several years, more than twelve hundred hacking attempts have been made against this blog by radicals who do not agree with what I’m saying. They are politically motivated, and they’re running a vast Radical Disinformation Pipeline. Trump hit us hard using that channel many times, particularly damaging were the WikiLeaks email dumps of 2016. They will continue supporting him all through next year, and the heat is just beginning.

It’s time for us to fight back. By the way, a friend of ours will be launching a Technology Corps very soon, a nonprofit called Truth in Vision-Research and Tech Corps. Check it out; I think you will find it’s up to standards.

Just earlier this week, the Russians came back on social media, Instagram to be exact, and are now busily infesting the campaign of Pete Buttigieg, who has taken no action. This just started, and you folks are some of the first to know. Warn everyone you can; the moment we’ve been training for has come. Stay ready.

Going forward, we’ve got to remind people of what we’re fighting both for and against and stay true to our values, because getting rid of Trump becomes worthless if we’re just going to do the same that he is. Democrats are better than this. And very soon in court, we’re going to show the world why lying is bad-by paying Donald Trump the full wages of his crimes.

 

Return of the Russians! Instagram Trolls Infest Team Buttigieg- What’s Pete’s Plan?

Warning! The Russians have returned and returned in earnest. They are BACK- on Instagram, and for Pete Buttigieg. This one’s going out to the entire online Democratic coalition- the moment we’ve all been training for has arrived. The scum are back for more.

Watch for them everywhere-but most especially, watch out for them on Instagram, where they’ve just begun a fresh campaign by infiltrating Buttigieg’s online community.

This is the front of suspected Russian hacker @potus_pete2020’s Instagram profile; meme phrasing by yours truly. Anti Biden on the right, anti Yang in the center, pro-Russia on the left. Nothing pro-Pete Buttigieg whatsoever; he even misspells his name.

They’re on Instagram instead of Facebook right now for the most part, but other than that it is the same old pack as always. There’s been one other change as well, an extremely cunning one. They chose to enter the fray through a man no one has yet suspected- the so-called moderate from a red state, Pete Buttigieg, through a platform the most experienced anti-disinfo forces know the least about and have the least presence on.

When I found this, and had gathered enough evidence to make it worth the warning, my first instinct was to do something to help. We are Joe Biden supporters here at Millennial Democrats, but beyond all else, we serve the Party itself as the one force capable of keeping America’s vast empire intact. This race has been nothing like 2016 so far; we’d better keep it that way, I reasoned.

Therefore, I reached out to a friend of mine who works with their campaign in regard to Russian disinformation. I showed him the evidence and gave him my ideas. But when I asked if he was willing to work on it with me to get Pete to listen, even lend a hand, I received a nasty shock, one that has left me questioning a man who just yesterday I was planning to drop an article on, by some variant on Pete “Plan B” Buttigieg. If not Biden, I always thought Mayor Pete would be the second-best.

Then his supporter told me the following.

But I’m not. I’ve said all I can really say about it. I trust the IC {intelligence community) to do the work. Americans learn, change, and go from there. They have access to more information than we ever would.

Well, sir, I can tell you for my own part, foreign criminal hackers including Guccifer 2.0 have tried to hack me over twelve hundred times. The intelligence community never gave me a call even once. We must warn the other candidates and the people as well. A famous Russian troll farm, Green Floid LLC, just tried hacking me yesterday. It’s been in the news many times and is located in Florida-which is also where Muratov lives. I don’t believe in coincidences anymore.

The real question is, is this just a Buttigieg supporter talking out of school, or is he really parroting Pete himself? We need a statement on it just as fast as we can get; this will be the definitive question if we can force him to answer it.

I’ve always liked Pete. I want to give him a chance to do the right thing.

If he flubs it, it can only be due to two factors. Either he’s a cowardly idiot or he’s owned by the Russians and by Facebook; he just met with Zuckerberg last month- and a week later, there are trolls online named things like @potus_pete2020 spreading memes like this around.

Provided by Russian hacker @potus_pete2020 on Instagram.
This is most likely the real @potus_pete2020. Big scientist, tons of degrees- just like all my hackers. Same crew; in fact, Muratov below lives in the same part of Florida as one of my recent hackers, famous troll farm GreenFloid, LLC. Coincidence? Uncertain but likely.
This guy Muratov is a big fancy scientist with a million degrees; everyone else on his site seems either to be his fellow hacker’s bot accounts or someone legitimate. They hide among us and are cybernetic predators.

What’s the plan, would-be Potus Pete? We’re up against it. Your people, the American people, are not safe. These people came here and held fake blacktivist rallies to which they came heavily armed. If that supporter spoke for you correctly, I think that’s just sickening. After all that we went through in 2016? How dare you not take this seriously?

The Russian plan is simple, clever, and a very bad sign for us. They’re heading over to Instagram, the other major platform owned by Facebook where no one is watching for it, and they’ve chosen the campaign of someone who was thought to be a real Democrat. We have all got to get over to Instagram immediately; not to argue with the trolls or debate them, but to expose them, and mass-report them right offline.

This will not be that hard; after all, we have learned from them, and all too well at that. They’ve been going for less than three weeks. But we’ve got to go and do it right away because otherwise, they can badly hurt us. Regulations there are all but nonexistent.

It’s more like Facebook in 2016, and just as then, they are spreading new anti-Democratic filth over every inch. It was the Wild Wild West in here last time; we now have to shift gears completely after all this time training on Twitter and Facebook and add Instagram to our daily routine as well. We really have our work cut out for us.

But here I’ve got this guy telling me all about why we should all forget about it and go back to bed. Wow.

The whole conversation left me feeling troubled. The guy seemed like a chatbot. “Be like Pete”? That’s creepy! His followers seem to see him as a saintly figure; I haven’t seen the like since Bernie Sanders ran in 2016; his campaign has been eerily quiet, as has even Tulsi Gabbard’s.

Buttigieg just met with Mark Zuckerberg a few months ago and hired two staffers on his recommendation. I seriously have to wonder if they really planned this out.

Be like Pete.

You can tell how much @potus_pete2020 really cares about you, Mayor Pete, so what’s the plan? Will you show some guts and backbone, or not? History will judge you accordingly.

You would think Buttigieg would know better than to think Putin and Co. will ever accept him; even Mark Zuckerberg his old friend is certain to hold him in contempt, they’re just using him to try and hurt Joe Biden and spread mistrust and discord through the Party.

On Reddit and 4chan they call him Butt Gig and vie to exceed each other in vile displays of typed-out homophobia. Putin himself has forbidden Russian parents to tell their children gay people even exist.

Butt Gig.

You’d think he’d rather stick with us and be Boot-a-Judge a while longer- but from what his guy was saying, it doesn’t exactly sound like it.

“[A]n American Majority like what Pete is building will drown out the Russians. We are spending our time reaching people directly in the real world. Social media is not the real world.”

Note his hint of condescension; I’m in the real world; you’re just online. News flash, Pete fan: There is no actual distinction between the “real world” and the online “world”. This is not a Philip K. Dick novel or a Cartesian discourse; just a regular old Democratic one.

Social media is now being used by half of Earth’s population; Instagram and Facebook alone have three billion members. Cars, construction equipment, weapon systems- everything is online these names. They’ve even got a term for that; the Internet of Things. In fact, practically every aspect of human customization of the planet now takes place online. Computers and what’s inside their screens are very much a part of this world, and what happens on them has real-and often massive-effects on the offline, or “real”, world.

The Arab Spring toppled dictators all across the realm, and it never would have happened without Twitter. Likewise, Brexit and Trump rocked the global order like a one-two combination. Social media manipulation campaigns led by Russians in both cases paved the way for domestic radicals on both sides of the spectrum. They were as big a single factor as any other in why we lost in 2016.

Are you really telling us to close our eyes here, Pete?

It’s a great tool, but simply by engaging with bots and trolls, we feed them and move them further up in the algorithm. People are learning how to recognize these things by themselves. We are Americans, we want to figure things out for ourselves, and it takes time. In the background the intelligence Community are full of civil servants that are fighting the cyber war all day, every day. Even Twitter removes thousands of fake accounts every day, and no longer does political ads. And anyone who becomes part of the Pete Family becomes aware of all of this very quickly.

Pete, we’re not trying to argue with the trolls. We’re trying to get them offline, out of our country, and a trillion miles out of our political system. And we’re building a case profile that will allow future generations to start figuring out a way to solve this nihilistic, “post-truth” way of life.

That’s not how you “bump somebody up on the algorithm”.

Look here, guys. You’ve been warned. You know, or will know very soon, that we are right. If you go check out @potus_pete’s Instagram profile, it’s all right there. Check out Muratov on his Followers list. Besides, from what my old pal was saying, it sounded very much like he already knew; he even said so, as you will later see.

Getting back to these days, the same old crud as always caught my eye.

Cheesy memes, tons of misspellings, including even the candidate’s name; you’re going to tell me that a guy named @potus_pete2020 and posts for the man all day long cannot remember how to spell his name? They’re laughing at us.

This picture is indicative of the Russian tactical shift. Guys like @potus_pete2020 are disrupting these days not on Facebook which is too locked down, but on Instagram which also hosts a billion people out of the planet’s seven. It’s not being looked at. We must change that, and quick.
Let’s take a closer look at what all that print up there is really saying.

First off, Buttigeg?
You’re telling me you’re an extreme, radically partisan supporter of this man, but you can’t even spell his name?
Second, PeteforAmerica- dot OM?
In 2016 the Russians snared all KINDS of people with fake YouTube, fake USAToday, fake everything. That’s a dead link now. My guess is it’s soon to be something else, and probably something ugly. Sure, I could report him, and I will do so eventually regardless, but it’s not just him that is the problem. It’s his whole team. I found dozens more like our dear @potus_pete2020 in his Followers list.
Russian hackers are very racist.
After seeing those pictures about oneself, you’d have to be insane not to want these guys taken offline. When they’re using my name, and they’re appearing hundreds deep one day? You’d better get your head checked-and yet, Pete seems completely stable. We’re not talking about Howard Dean here.
Millennial Democrats would also like to express our strongest possible concern about the Buttigieg campaign hiring staff recommended by Mark Zuckerberg. After all the crooked things that Trump has done, the country’s got to heal. We cannot be the next crooks, and if we get in bed with that lot. The billionaire founder of Facebook is being credited literally as his shadow manager. Buttigieg hired several staff members on Zuckerberg’s suggestion.
Dustin Moskowitz is a billionaire co-founder of Zuckerberg’s, and he gave 1.5 million to MoveOn.org just before Zack Exley took off to start Bernie’s campaign. It has been suppressing moderate Democrats for years. The first time we wrote about it was when the unfair Group restrictions started. Then as now, we were treated like criminals and were all on restriction and in Facebook Jail constantly. “How Russians Silence Democrats on Facebook With Impugnity.” was its title. Needless to say, that bitter saga continues.
Of course, everyone knows Instagram is owned by Facebook? Maybe? Well, they do now. So notice Zuckerberg is doing nothing over there, even while he crushes us with every legal tactic he’s allowed to.
One likely scenario is that they’ve ditched the Bern as useless and joined up with this guy.
This is from a second alt-right troll on Instagram, @harold.balls. But it’s got a certain horrifying logic about it too. “Be like Pete” is just creepy.

Pete, you have got to get ahead of this if you want to maintain the support and respect of your base. You’ve got to stand up, be a man and take responsibility for the safety of this country and its people. Show some damn integrity. That’s what the President does, not sit around and spin up cheap excuses.

The IC [intelligence community of the United States] didn’t know what the problem was. It is different now. I’ve watched every hearing the IC has been involved in on capital hill. They are working with other countries who know about this stuff. They are doing work now that they didn’t know they needed to do before. They can’t be perfect all the time.

The intelligence community knew a lot that could have helped us. But it’s not their job to tell people. It’s the president’s job, which is why our work is being done. So I told him that and asked for his help.

This is what he said to me, Mayor Pete.

But I’m not. I’ve said all I can really say about it. I trust the IC to do the work. Americans learn, change, and go from there. They have access to more information than we ever would.

America deserves to know if he was speaking for you.

Remember this guy, my ninth hacker, Sergey “Guccifer 2.0.” Morgachev?

Holy shit.
This man, who has been on the FBI Cyber Most Wanted list, made the ninth hacking attempt against Millennial Democrats. He is a GRU officer and one of the twelve Russian nationals charged by Robert S. Mueller III on July 13, 2018. I guess he didn’t like me.

Once you have a guy like this, a world-famous criminal, trying to take you out personally because you’ve blown the whistle on his master, perhaps you get a perspective this man was lacking. Morgachev was one of Robert Mueller’s Russian Dozen charged 7/13/18, for operating the “Guccifer 2.0” apparatus. He got drowned out fine, back in 2016- to the point where everybody forgot he was there. And so, look at what happened. The IC never gave me a call, this or twelve hundred other times.

No way have we spent all this time fighting Russian disinformation just to turn a blind eye because it’s Pete Buttigieg doing it. If it were Joe Biden, I would be fighting every bit as hard against him. But it’s not.

We cannot continue to be slobs about this. Our parents taught us that when you see a filthy mess, you clean it up. You don’t just sit there, waiting for someone else to. That is not the American way. Trump has let the problem sit in piles on the rug, and small wonder, since it’s all being done on his behalf! He wouldn’t warn the people if he were paid to; two hundred thousand dollars is not much money compared to what Putin can offer.

If the generation that gave us George Washington and James Madison had just sleepily yawned, rolled over and said **** it, we would still be part of the British Empire and might have never ended slavery. Resigning ourselves to profane inertia is not our answer here.

#BeLikePete, he told me. That’s their slogan.

Be like Pete? I’ll decide after I hear what he himself has to say about this. We must force a public statement out of him.

Because if this is who Pete Buttigieg is, then Pete Buttigieg is the enemy. He’s Bernie Lite.

Pete here can either disavow this supporter’s analysis and do what is needed to purge those fake Russians off his side, or he can go down in history as a greasy weasel. If he keeps letting these trolls walk on us, he’s every bit as worthless in Donald Trump, and I will fight him just as hard as I defended him before.
Thank You For Not Lying!

His follower spoke of his ideas about an “American Majority”; sounds good.
Built on such a foundation, it will prove about as stable as a beehive in a blizzard.

A president with no concern for national security is no president at all.

We have a saying: #BeLikePete.

So when we see something like that, we don’t engage, we report and block.

Pete says the only way we can win is if we deserve to win.

For the record, we block trolls too, sir. Tens of thousands of them-literally.

In some ways, it’s the hallmark of a good politician to be able to slither and evade. But this is going way too far. It’s irresponsible. There has not been a concerted assault like this since the 2016 primary- and here we are in the 2020 primary season. Now is the time to be most concerned, not least.

Do you say you don’t attack Democrats, Pete? Fantastic. Then you’ll naturally understand the need to work together in ridding both the election cycle and the planet of crap like this. America is waiting, would-be POTUS. What’s the plan?

This picture, taken from the profile of a probably-Russian bot, @potus_pete2020, disrupting these days not on Facebook which is too locked down, but on Instagram which also hosts a billion people out of the planet’s seven. It’s not being looked at. We must change that, and quick.
More anti-Democratic garbage from @potus_pete2020, new Russian troll on Instagram-where nobody is looking.
