BOMBSHELL BERNIE DISCOVERY!! Robert Mueller Should Have Spoken to JD Founder Zack Exley.

The long-awaited 2020 election year has finally arrived, and the moment of November truth will soon be at hand. However, everything that comes with it is mostly still just ahead, and in this particular time and place, that statement covers a lot of ground. The Iowa caucus is now a week away, and because the media has failed us so horrendously and completely when it comes to vetting Bernie Sanders, who had a literal, digital hotline to Vladimir Putin during the entire 2015-16 debacle of an election season through Justice Democrats founder Zack Exley, we have no choice but to do it ourselves. This task has brought many eye-widening moments into my life.

But nothing whatsoever like this.

Just in case you missed that, Bernie had a hotline to Putin, through “Democratic” socialist Zack Exley. A literal hotline to the Russian Federation, Guccifer 2.0, and Putin. In the form of a computer server- that the Chinese government is connected to as well- provably! He still does. It’s unofficial, of course, but it exists. I have proof enough to fact-claim it for sure. I’ve got the evidence, and as soon as I’m sure it’s safe I will give it all to you guys. Suffice it to say for now, it’s a place of such significance to them that a literal billionaire has been hired to safeguard its net presence. I am trying to contact the Democratic Party’s national leadership about it before I put the data out in earnest for the whole world to see.

This is Exley up above here; remember well this goofy Mad Magazine face, but know he’s not as silly as he looks.

Look at his eyes. They glow like coals in the head of a predator; one suspects in the dark they have red shine, which no mammal has ever had unless it be by unwholesome means and in nightmares. There is no doubt the man is formidable, and wickedly so.

He’s one of the most clever and cunning people you will ever meet, actually, a Harvard graduate who has created a progressive council in every county that comprises the United States of America, more than seven thousand of them in total, according to his Harvard mentor, the famous union organizer Marshall Ganz.

I know what you’re thinking, folks; what in the hell does this guy mean, Bern and Exley had a hotline to Putin? That’s crazy!

This is tall talk, and I apologize for tantalizing you, but I have no choice. Please keep in mind as well, we have never failed a fact check. Not once.

What I found recently- using irrefutable methods, mind you, the type that simply cannot be faked- was enough to shock the breath right out of my lungs. I’ve never even been CLOSE to something this big before. I can’t help but think I should try and contact the Democratic Party’s leadership before publishing it. It may literally change history completely. There’s only one thing I can give you right this minute in the form of a hint, and it’s below.

See you shortly, readers.

I hate to say it, after all we’ve been through, but the Bern himself is a real piker compared to this guy Exley. Bern’s loud mouth and blue clown suit were the big reasons in the beginning why I thought he was trouble. But after the Philadelphia riots, which Exley’s close proxy Becky Bond- who co-wrote Rules for Revolutionaries-How Big Organizing Can Change Everything alongside him- describes vividly in said book, in which illegally-acquired-by-a-foreign-power documents saying nothing whatsoever

I never thought he could possibly be this bad when I first started researching him, only that he was a smartmouthed punk of a socialist who was trying to take over the Democratic Party with nonsense like he and Cenk Uygur’s #WeWillReplaceYou.

Who would have known in the beginning that this young-looking, self-admitted former snotnose kid was actually this strong of an opponent?

By now it should be frightfully clear to the reader that we are up against something much bigger- and much nastier- with the Bernie Sanders “revolution” than the newspapers are telling us. We actually are up against a man who, from all appearances, has been an asset of Russian intelligence for the last entire two decades. There are actual evidentiary items showing us this, I remind you. I have to get ahold of the Party leadership. I can’t believe I’ve been covering this all these last five years and never caught it.

Then again, Robert Mueller didn’t find it either. If he had, I believe with all my heart the whole thing would have gone a very different way. Paul Manafort is sitting in prison for seventeen years, and as much of a piece of trash as he is, he too is a piker next to Exley!

Very little of his personal life is known, but what we do know indicates- at least to me, knowing what I do about Chinese hackers whom I suspect are connected to Putin and the Russians- he broke bad in 1987, or whenever before that he really committed to all this and went to Shanxi Normal University in China– on the Russian border- to go to college.

I’ve been working on this piece on him, which literally spans back before two decades ago, for nearly six months, and that is the reason why.

It took me a lot of work, folks, putting all this together for you. It’s the biggest project by far I have ever taken on, and I’ll admit to being slightly freaked out, but c’est la vie.

Going forward, we’re going to view him increasingly not as Exley, but as what he is; a society-smashing hooligan of a Garbage Man.

George W. Bush was both right and not lying both for the first and only time in his whole entire life when he coined Exley’s moniker for him.

To fully understand the far left, and what has been happening with them, the story of the Garbage Man and his twenty-one year long attempt to conquer the Democratic Party is absolutely central. A more thorough understanding likewise of the true power and significance of MoveOn.org is necessary, as for the entire second half of the millennium decade it was vastly more influential than the Justice Democrats are now. It was powerful enough for people to take seriously the following statement from then-MoveOn executive director Eli Pariser.

Next time we’ll be starting out with a blast to the past. Flashback to the year 2004, a month and a day after John Kerry’s defeat at the hands of the junior Bush, to an episode of CNN Crossfire on which this quote from Pariser, who at that time was the young executive director at MoveOn.org, a man who all agreed was a genius, is read out by, of all people, Tucker Carlson.

Yesterday, the head of MoveOn’s political action committee sent an e-mail to supporters attacking outgoing Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe. 

Quote: [from Eli Pariser] “We can’t afford four more years of leadership by a consulting class of professional election losers,” he wrote. He went on to say: “In the last year, grassroots contributors like us gave more than $300 million to the Kerry campaign and the DNC and proved that the party does not need corporate cash to be competitive. Now it’s our party. We bought it, we own it, and we’re going to take it back” end quote. -Tucker Carlson, CNN Crossfire.

God, I resent how these radical leftists keep making me agree with the Republicans.

Pariser left MoveOn.org in 2013 to write the book “Filter Bubble” about the dangers of hearing only from people who agree with you (To me, this is highly revealing, and one day I will find out exactly why Pariser left; my guess is, it’s a really interesting story) was the first and the strongest of all Exley’s wunderkind proxies, and although there have been many since, none have surpassed him and all have been crafted in his image.

This is also when Exley developed the shocking trick he’s kept himself in the shadows with all these years, namely, not taking credit for anything (loudly, at least) and not boasting. In that, at least, we can find something to respect. But it’s also why it’s so tough to find anything out about this man and his utterly shady existence. Pariser’s “genius” gave him something-and someone- to hide behind.

The MoveOn.org team didn’t mind that Kerry had lost, just as they didn’t mind when Hillary Clinton was robbed in 2016. We know it was sabotage the second time, and one day we will find out about the first time too. Bank on it; after all, Tad Devine was there for that one as well-and for Howard Dean.

Why? Because they can’t have the likes of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, coming through with their conservative and extremely successful fiscal policies, proving that you don’t have to waste money like a slob to run a good country, nor talk like a Nazi either, nor start wars for cheaper oil only to jerk up gas prices. I wonder how long this has been going on for. I’m sure it’s been on a historical continuum, a plan revealed in phases, and only through windows made of treachery- and tragedy.

Maybe by now you’re starting to see the pattern.

Exley has a set of goals in mind that are not conducive to American life. Not in any way at all. And he certainly, in no way whatsoever, has goals that align with our Party. His only use for our base, e.g. the polyglot of persons that makes America and the Democratic Party both so strong, lies in co-opting them and putting them to zany work. Why?

Because it benefits the Republicans, and the right wing in general.

Donald Trump’s entire campaign for the year revolves around the Squad. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can’t go half an hour without saying something obnoxious or radical, like calling centrist Democrats- the only sane people in the country!- the Tea Party of the Left (which is Exley’s whole plan for her faction, according to Marshall Ganz) recently, and if it isn’t her it’s Ilhan Omar. Everything they do makes us look bad and they have tremendous energy, being young.

This is the whole point of Millennial Democrats, by the way. It’s half the reason it’s so important. We had to stand up and show you that not all of us are insane socialists! We were listening while we were growing up, we do not spurn you, we have not rejected the good things you taught us. We love you. Do not feel restless about leaving America in our hands.

How dare you try to take that from them, Zack Exley!

The far fake radical Bernie “left” wants to co-opt our entire generation. They wanted to use us like chalkboard erasers to undo the civil rights legacy of our parents- hence, “OK Boomer”. That is why the Bernie left literally made a fake Millennial Democrats of their own, several weeks ago.

They’ll throw huge cash at it, and unless one of our guys wants to do the same with me, they will soon be bigger than we are. So be it; I’m used to that.

But they’ll never be as good.

The far left exists to make Democrats look bad. We knew already Facebook had paid out huge sums of money (in 2015 Dustin Moskowitz gave MoveOn.org $1.5 million and his wife Cari Tuna gave another) to help breathe the far left into existence, which pretty much let us know for a fact why we’d been having so much trouble with them. Now we know that Putin too has been footing the bill; they’ve got an actual, physical hotline with him, through the server they keep just outside of his backyard.

See you all in Part II, and thank you for your patience on the bombshell. It will not be long.

To Brandon the Impostor, Millennial Democrat Who Isn’t- Words of Welcome and Warning.

Will the real Millennial Democrats please stand up? 
Readers mine, it’s been a long four years, and no mistake is possible to make about it. Long, and ugly. The second week of 2020 is now underway, and the opposition is turning up the pressure now for all that they are worth. New tactics abound daily; we’re seeing a virtual onslaught from every angle- but, fear not, Democratic family, because we’re used to it by now. A lowly impostor aping my website is not the worst I’ve seen- but there is an intimacy to such an escalation that I once again find rather terrifying- not to mention truly irritating.

“Welcome! At Millennial Democrats, we are responding to millennial concerns and getting involved in the political process as millennials. Our message and our stance is clear. We are Democrats. We believe in helping actual people make actual changes for the better, in their lives and in society. As the youngest generation of voters, we’re about finding new and innovative ways to do that going in to the future. We are going to uphold the time honored traditions of Franklin Roosevelt and Barack Obama, by finding new ways to do good for the people living in the world. There is a reasonable alternative to the pandemonium created by the current administration. Please join us in the task of helping the concept evolve.” -Millennial Democrats, 7/17.

That, as most of you will recognize, is this site’s Home Page, its introductory paragraph. There have been signs before that people dig how I set up the site, with the city of New York and all; just seemed to fit, although my true interest here lies in the writing. It became obvious that this was the plan right from the top of their new Page, where they ripped off my language in the most shameless and inferior fashion.
“Millennial Democrats represent a group unlike any the US political process has ever seen. This organization is made up of volunteers who want to impact the political process and are tired of politics as usual. We are responding to the millennial generation’s concerns and are getting involved in the political process. We have learned from the history of Franklin Roosevelt, Barack Obama, and even politicians like Abraham Lincoln that there are alternatives to tribal politics: rational activism.” -an anonymous Brandon De Graff, speaking as the Impostor Millennial Democrats.org.
It’s not even subtle. I began looking into the website’s owner. It didn’t quite take me twenty minutes to find him. Or if it was over, it was just over:) I found his girlfriend and everything. Her name doesn’t need to get published here.
Yet.
So the natural question begs itself. What are the haps with that website?
I’m going to make an example out of this one.
Today a teammate and close friend brought me a meme made by Kaivan Shroff, the guy who does the very first Millennial_Dems on Twitter and also, I believe, on Instagram. I will freely admit I came in second in the beginning by about two weeks, it’s how we ended up MD-America on Facebook and Twitter.
Kaivan’s all right, we have similar moderate views and have always managed to comfortably co-exist. When I found out the meme was his I relaxed there, we know each other and follow each other on Twitter. I intend to reach out for collaboration one of these days, two independents with good hearts and a will to speak truth to power.
It would have been nice to have Brandon’s help too, but that’s not how this story goes.
As we write these words, the Iranian trouble is kicking into overdrive, impeachment is kicking off, and all of it is being handled in the most shoddy, slipshod, slovenly, sloppy and nowhere near secretive enough manner. Hezbollah has killed several Americans already (not that Tulsi Gabbard will bother to condemn her own best buddies), Iran is firing missiles at us, Iraq has firmly handed us an eviction notice for our soldiers and through it, all, above the din, rises the high reedy voice of Donald Trump, screeching at us to trust in the intelligence community. In short, the saga continues, half dystopia and half tragicomedy, bordering on hysteria.
One does not know whether to laugh or to cry.
Of course, this all raises a fairly basic question- MD, what are you screwing around for? There’s big shit in the news! This can wait, can’t it? Shouldn’t you be writing about Iran?
Quick answer? Of course, I should, and so I have been. It’s basically done, tomorrow’s article, covering the whole story in as succinct a tone as I can muster- a remarkably difficult task given the complexity of writing about Middle Eastern power dynamic, but one I’ll gladly tackle every time I get a chance. It is a perfect microcosm of what is going on everywhere for Democrats large and small. Foreign hackers, domestic trolls no less vicious, elected politicians of both Parties, and all the big money in America without are targeting us every single day.
Just the same, it’s got to wait until tomorrow. I’m making a point with this article, a simple one, and that is this. When they target our social media accounts and silence our voices, they are taking out the only weapons in the whole civil rights arsenal we can really use with safety and daring both, and this, of course, cannot be allowed. We already know the Iranian Cyber Army cannot be far away. It’s only a matter of time.
When the Northern Kurds of Syria were hit by the Turkish the day Trump left them hanging last fall, it wasn’t long before dying humans were reaching out to the world, sharing footage desperately of the atrocities committed in those hours in the hopes of exciting enough world outrage for the killing to stop. I’m proud to say I’m among the people chosen to spread those videos, and I did. The same thing happened last week when Iranian general Soleimani was killed. I was brought the video without even asking before 24 hours had gone by. Those things would never have happened for me had it not been for the online digital awareness-raising mouthpiece I have built.
Visibility in politics is our greatest defense against the literal one-world police-state the monopolist elite are building, and this we get through social media also; in fact, even such monumental events as the Arab Spring could never have taken place without Twitter. This is why in addition to my website Mariah Carey’s Twitter account was targeted by the Chinese on New Year’s Eve. It is not a game at all. We get our power here.
So when someone decides to target your work like this fakir of a Bernie Bot has me, it means they are trying to disarm you completely. In a world where the true struggles between sovereign states are all on social media now; there are no “hot wars” (meaning straightforward military battles) worth fighting, this cannot be allowed.
It was just over 24 hours ago when I happened to Google my website, the first time I’ve had to do so in quite a while. I half-fooled myself. It actually took a moment to take in fully what I was seeing: a second Millennial Democrats WordPress blog, gussied up to look as much like mine here as possible. Surreal as it seems, the fact is undeniable. An impostor has suddenly popped up online, and is using my name and my brand to mislead and waylay our people.
This too cannot be allowed.
It was very strange to see my work thus aped and replicated, by a smug little weasel who is thinking to ride my coattails and eat crumbs from my table to live. Strange and upsetting, in fact. I wasn’t expecting it at all and indeed had no idea it existed. Before today it’s been a bit since I needed to Google myself, and this whole time before there’s only ever just been two of us Millennial Democrats, both myself, seen today on top, and the Millennial_Dems who are a bit older than us. We get along fine. But this guy in the middle? He’s new, and he’s up to no good. His name is Brandon, his last name probably isn’t De Graff, and this is his picture.
Bernie Sanders is Brandon the Impostor’s choice for: The Best Candidate for 2020- but on his Page, however, he tries acting undecided.
He is baiting people off of Facebook onto Reddit and undoubtedly worse places later. That’s my big thing, you know; he’s cloaking his predatory instincts with my work and aesthetic.
Ever read that old Stephen King novella, Secret Window, Secret Garden?
You stole my story, Brandon, so to speak. That’s patently unacceptable, and more so for you than for me.
Those who use their strength and wit to poison and destroy their fellow children of God are damned. Change your ways now, for soon it will be too late. You’d better do some thinking about what I could have done to you if I weren’t so nice a guy. The next guy you try to pillage and rob may not be so forgiving.
I could have chosen many other pictures, including some I found in a certain kind of registry database, the kind you do NOT want your job finding out about; those pictures are in an as-of-yet unpublished, sort of, unabridged article, you might say; I like to think it’ll be Brandon’s choice whether or not that one comes out.
But I chose this one, with full respect to the JW Cassel in the brave post calling him out, because it came along with a real Democrat’s completely correct opinion of him as a lousy piece of garbage, one who voted for Jill Stein out of Bernie or Bust resentment.
The latest Tweets from BC DeGraff (@BrandonDegraff1). Don’t follow me if you’re not a Bernie Supporter. I’m NOT a Democrat. I’m not a Republican. I’m a Progressive writer.
Which is to say, he prison shanked the United States. Right in the guts.
For shame, Brandon. To stoke an unfair grudge this far. Cultivated for no good reason except sexism, deniable only because of Jill Stein’s milkwater gender. You lit your country on fire. We agree on one thing, at least; there’s not a Democratic bone in your body. But since you have decided to step up and claim your false flag title, please allow me to bring you up to speed.
A Democrat will stop at absolutely nothing. I think you are likely to regret, sir, your decision not to ape someone else’s hard work instead of mine.
I found him by Googling the large hashtag on the site’s front page- which sure does look a lot like my site’s front page-#ANYFUNCTIONINGADULT, itself this year’s Vote Blue No Matter Who.
That brought me to two Facebook Pages with the same name, one big, one little. It must have been the big one he made on purpose. The little one appears to be the default landing place for his Reddit threads, and that’s where he biffed it. I soon found the same comments were posted on Reddit. A few more back and forths and around the net later and I had everything.
They are going to muddy our waters by pretending to be us and capitalize on all our hard work for free, all the while diluting and perverting our message with all the Bern-feeling drivel they can muster. Just look at the Friends List on this guy.
Worst I’ve seen since Oliver the Macedonian, Brandon the Impostor. You guys should join pro wrestling and be a tag team- or join the President’s Cabinet.
These pro-Bernie Sanders Facebook groups were all partially run by Macedonian hacker Oliver Mitov, who may or may not even exist.
These pro-Bernie Sanders Facebook groups were all partially run by Macedonian hacker Oliver Mitov, who may or may not even exist.
Jesus God. That’s not just feeling the Bern. That’s positively molesting him.
From there I found a Facebook Page by the same name, and from there a Reddit account that appears to be managing a subreddit for Rachel Maddow, one u/akacats. It appears fraudulent, to understate the point unto ludicrousness.
It did not take long to realize I was down the Bern rabbit hole again, and it also didn’t take long to realize I most probably had found me a big juicy bunny, too.
Any Functioning Adult. I wonder which one of the usual suspects came up with this one? This kind of crap goes around every year; it’s nothing but a cheap trick, a way to get real Democrats to drop their guard. Last time it was Vote Blue No Matter Who.
Bernie’s people are not Democrats and take great pride in the ignominious fact; they’re more like carjackers, bullies, and thugs like the guy in the image I used for this article. That’s why he’s come sniffing around trying to steal my work. He made some lousy movie about the Bernie or Bust movement; if I can find a pirated copy or make a fresh one, I’ll give it a watch. The whole last four years have been like having the flu anyway; what’re a few extra retches among friends and Millennial Democrats? Brandon’s friend below who uses that button as her avatar at least had the capacity to be honest about that, which is more than I will say for him.
It just goes to show; if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em- or, if that’s not an option because you’re a radical, impersonate them and waylay those who support them. He’s put this honey trap out there to punish and hurt you, loyal readers, to get to me. They’ll continue doing this kind of crap, too, unless I can find a way to make such a course of action unpalatable for them.
So that’s what I’ve been working on. All evening, in fact.
The many Bernie Bots I showed earlier were most of his friends, of course. But the usual alt-right types were there in dreadful plenty also. That Any Functioning Adult 2020, ostensibly imploring us to recognize Donald Trump as the greatest threat, the only threat worth considering, is entitled to its opinion, of course; I thought the same myself in 2016, as I said before.
But if she is a sincere Democrat, and it’s nothing but policy differences dividing her and us, what in God’s holy name is she up to supporting the Brexit?
Regular readers of this blog will not be suspicious when I tell them there’s more of this kind of thing; a lot more. did find some things to write about what they might find inconveniencing, although of course nothing malicious or illegal.
Just good, old fashioned open-source intelligence can give you all the dirt you need- or cleanliness, in this case. Clear, pristine, virgin cleanliness. Got to hand it to ya, Brandon. You’re a regular Peter the Hermit where that subject is concerned. Sh4rki would be proud.
Brandon De Graff, this is your cue to start listening.
#AltRightIsFarLeft; this is just one more bitter ratf*cking testimonial.  You seem to know this quite well judging by who your friends are, Mr. Akacats on Reddit. But always remember where there’s life, there’s hope. You have been deep in the counsel of the enemy,  There is much good you could still do. Come back to the path of reason. Talk to me, we’ll help you tell your old friends to go to hell. There’s just one thing, really. As a sign of good faith, I’ll be needing you to take the fake website down or I will have to keep digging; if this is what I found after 20 minutes, what would I find in a month?
Civil political discourse is one thing; welcome to the arena, but be warned now: you have crossed the tideline out into dark waters. Do not make me sink you there.

 

 

 

China’s HUGE New Year’s Eve Windows Hack Attack Targets Millennial Democrats.

I’d just like to thank you, China. By including me in yesterday’s massive, personally motivated anti-Windows hack attack, as covered yesterday by Forbes Magazine, you gave me the best present anyone ever has, in this whole ten-year period. Furthermore, you used a Russian ransomware virus, but a variant of it created by yourselves, hinting strongly that you and Russia were in on this together-which I’ve also been saying for years. Proof of what you’re up to is not easy to find.

You really made my decade and my New Year.

I’ve been working on showing the world, China, what your horrible hacker jackals have been trying and failing to do to me for years, ever since the sonic attacks that injured our diplomats while visiting your country.

China Will Likely Be 2020’s Main Hacking Actor, Not Russia! Be Alert!

Last fall we did that piece telling the world to watch out for Chinese disinformation actors in the 2020 electoral cycle, perhaps beyond even the Russians- who are continuing to infest the Instagram community of Pete Buttigieg, even now.

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. Joker creepy.

But no matter how many failed attempts or brute-force attacks you’ve made against my website, it’s been an uphill battle telling the world what Microsoft and the Trump administration has not wanted to admit- that you, and not Russia, is the most skillful and numerous of our cyber-adversaries.

Then came yesterday’s one-two punch, which certainly did unsettle me for a few hours- with pure excitement.

First, there’s the unbelievably powerful malware my dear good Windows Defender Firewall caught you trying to use on one of my honeypot computers.

You didn’t think I’d leave the back door unlocked on a computer I actually use, did you, silly China? Boy, howdy. It’s called a honey trap for a reason, Ping-Pong. I caught you with a hunk of junk put together from spare parts in twenty minutes. Learn how to read.

(Speaking of reading, folks, this story’s in two parts, and therefore nowhere near as long as it looks; the second part is really just for specialists. Do with it as you please, the two halves are clearly delineated.)

This was an unreal discovery. That is military-grade ransomware you’re looking at there, folks. The fearsome Cerber virus. They tried to hit me with CERBER. I know how they did it, too; our tech guy baited them with a proxy network. He left the door open for them, the slobs. They came right in- and got caught red-handed.

I still can’t believe that an indy journalist like me, one who is not even getting paid to write their thoughts down, is being targeted by this level of resources. Even at this late stage in the game, Cerber is used to take huge hospitals hostage, not single citizens. Out of every piece of malware known to man, only the Stuxnet virus, which can send nuclear reactor cores into meltdown, is more terrible. Even the Botnet virus is not considered as dangerous. This is no kiddie script. Someone who sends that at you is not messing around. They hate you.

They personally hate you.

It has been confirmed that the Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit (DCU) has been tracking a hacking campaign against Windows users. Unlike recent threats involving zero-day vulnerabilities facing Windows users, this time the danger is a lot more personal.

Along with the Microsoft Threat Intelligence Center (MSTIC), the DCU has been monitoring an advanced persistent threat (APT) [Editor’s note- APT37 is the group I correctly identified as being behind my site’s cyber-targeting last fall when warning our community to watch out for the Chinese in 2020] hacking group operating an extensive criminal network to compromise accounts and steal data.

Who is behind the Microsoft Windows attack campaign?

The threat group behind these cyber-attacks is thought to be based in North Korea and has been named as “Thallium” by Microsoft and is also known as APT37. The hacking group appears to have been targeting government employees, university staff, those working on nuclear proliferation issues, as well as world peace and human right. The majority of those targeted were based in the U.S. but Microsoft has confirmed individuals in Japan and South Korea also found themselves in the hacking crosshairs.

So I’ve been doing research on this all day, of course, and had planned to write something up about it soon anyway. But then around nine at night, I saw this about Microsoft attacks in this Forbes story released and came to understand it was not just me. Still, there were only a few hundred of us targeted, for personal and political reasons, out of a world of seven billion people.

It’s like a dark matter Pulitzer Prize.

Objectively speaking, it’s kind of a big deal. It represents a drastic escalation compared to what they’ve tried with me before. Hacking a website is still personal, even as a vast campaign of attacks meant to traumatize the whole free world’s community, but this is far worse.

I decoyed them, and they bit. As hard as they could. Like a striking snake.

They followed who they thought was me down a dark alley network, and tried to take me, prisoner. I wonder who the others they attacked were? The Forbes article said everyone targeted was a human rights and freedom activist, one they’d been stalking and preparing to savage for years. We should all get together.

Microsoft hit them back, and so did we. They got their asses kicked, too. I have said it before, and I’ll say it again. Don’t mess with the US, and least of all with American Democrats.

This will raise morale in our community, folks. The global elite has just been shown its hot cross buns again. They have money and resource advantages, yes, but in terms of personnel, they are the disadvantaged ones. They are NOT invincible and they CAN be beaten, by regular people, just like you and me- although, as a matter of fact, anyone who doesn’t specialize in the topic may want to stop here. It’s going to get technical. Those who would like to know more about our methodology are welcome to continue down below, where our tech guy will give you the whole story.

Going forward, whether or not we are technical specialists, we can thank our brave technical staff for taking this risk for us, and protect ourselves in the usual manner- by not clicking on strange links, and not opening strange emails. We cannot stress enough just how dangerous things are going to be for the rest of a year that began in so dramatic a fashion-and is guaranteed to get even worse.

Look after yourselves and every Democrat. A lot of us have been dying and disappearing, and we already know what killers our opponents are. This ransomware is bad stuff; fastcompany.com called it No. 2 on their Five Most Dystopian Technologies of the Decade List. You do not want to play games on it. Putin, Xi, and Trump will stop at nothing and shirk no dirty work- but that doesn’t mean they’re winning. Just the opposite, in fact. Ours is the stronger side and always will be, so long as we insist on it.

Happy New Year, Democratic family, from your friends here at Millennial Democrats!

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.

 

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!
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.

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Facebook, Please Stop Suppressing Loyal Americans.

Dear Facebook, Please stop suppressing loyal Americans.

Facebook is a real hellhole, these days. I suppose it always has been; after all, we’ve been going through this now since 2016 and before. The first time we wrote an article chronicling our electronic woes, we called it Fake News and Facebook, and that was in 2017. But lately, things have gotten even worse. Far worse.

Democrats are being systematically targeted, taken out, suppressed, silenced, deactivated, unpublished, and erased, on Facebook. Trump recently hauled him in to express preposterous concerns as to whether or not they’ve been suppressing conservative speech, which was, in my opinion, a smokescreen to distract from the true situation, a classic case of Freudian projection. The list of miseries they have caused us recently is endless. This article could be written until the end of time.

This is why recently grilled Mark Zuckerberg (who ludicrously claimed Facebook can help the news business recently- perhaps he means by lighting it on fire? The world may never know) was threatened by the House of Representatives that we might just break up his company for him if he does not toe the line.

Is it our opinion that Facebook should be smashed to bits and scattered to the Four Winds? No. We need it to reach people, but something must be done. If you’re asking us, should it be taken away from Zuckerberg and his cronies, like Dustin Moskowitz who gave the staggering sum of $1.25 million to the fake leftist organization that crowned and created Bernie Sanders?

You better believe it!

Facebook and Zuckerberg pose an existential threat to free speech. The way they have callously sold our data, the way they did nothing in 2016 to warn us that Russia, an enemy country, was attacking our presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and their flagrant, everyday abuse of the brave Democratic activists who have led the Resistance against Donald Trump- All of it represents an undermining of American democracy on a level never even approached by Bill Gates and Microsoft (although Linux is better than Windows:) back in the day, and look at what was done to them! If Microsoft deserved it, Facebook deserves it a hundred times more. A thousand, ten thousand times more. The number is infinite, really.

This guy Zuckerberg- who I genuinely hope reads this article-has earned being removed from the situation if anyone ever did. Look at the epic slither he tossed out as a slick when Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (who is pretty good at grilling these guys, even if she does hang around with the closeted right-wing group the Justice Democrats) asked him (in essence) why in the hell has Fox News’s Tucker Carlson’s company The Daily Caller been chosen to check these facts?

 “We actually don’t appoint the independent fact-checkers, they go through an independent organization called the Independent Fact-Checking Network that has a rigorous (LOL!~) standard for who they allow to serve as a fact-checker.” 

That is false. Media Matters of America informs us that “Facebook requires its partners to be accredited by the organization, which is actually called the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), but it is Facebook, not IFCN, who decides which organizations Facebook uses in its fact-checking project.”

Actually, it’s not even a slither, since slithering implies evasion or omission rather than a flat out lie. This IS a flat out lie. A major American figure, one who should be an icon of free speech, lying on behalf of the Russians and the fascist American right. How utterly disgusting. How banal.

In her fundamental work The Origins of Totalitarianism, legendary political theorist Hannah Arendt coined an interesting phrase to describe an interesting tendency; the “banality of evil”. She was observing the pettiness of mankind’s cruelty to man in the realm of a dictator. The small petty ugliness of evil, the evil of cheap shots and Blockfuhrers. The thug classes and discriminatory neo-Jim Crow laws one will find in a failing democracy. One particular evil always comes in the form of information suppression. State TV like Fox News is a top indicator.

The first time I actually saw banal evil, it was when a Wal-Mart opened up in Taos, New Mexico and killed half the small businesses in town, more than two hundred of them. I resolved to fight and began to raise awareness just as I do now, and again, like now with Facebook, it was very hard to get anyone to listen.

One guy I met sort of cocked his eyebrow suspiciously at me, and said, “You high, man?” As it worked out I was not. But perhaps I might as well have been. For all our struggles, the next year they opened a Super Walmart, and all the rest of the town’s little Mom and Pop stores followed the dinosaurs and Pat Buchanan down the path to forgotten oblivion.

This time, I will not give up so easily, and neither will any other online Democratic activist. Yet our arsenal is not enough alone. We are asking for your help, America. Facebook is trying to shut us down.

This is happening to every group of Democrats on Facebook.

Why are we being forbidden to speak out for our country? There’s no rule saying that, of course, but half of our Pages at least, more than fifty of them, have been shadowbanned and unpublished over the years, and more than ever recently. It’s clear we’ve got stalkers, trained personnel who know how to use the Report as Spam/Abuse button as weapons. Presumably they’re the same people who are trying to hack my blog here all day long. I have had some of the best hackers in the world try to hack me lately, like this guy Alin Stefanescu, head of the University of Bucharest’s computer science department.

One of my many teachers-and the hacker trying to ruin me.

This is Alin Stefanescu. One of my many teachers-and one more hacker trying to ruin me.

Wow, I thought. Just- wow. He's got an entire university department to run, and still he finds the time to pile attacks on little ol' me.
This is the WHOIS registry’s information on the IP address that had hacked us most recently. Other than this, I have no relationship with the crude and thuggish Stefanescu, friend and servant of dictators.

Romania is known for the skill of its hackers and the school he works at is considered their best. That means that the top information technology expert in Romania has been trying personally to take me out.

God, how creepy.

It’s not possible to see who’s been falsely reporting you and stalking your Facebook. But common sense is enough to let you know, if they’re here, they’re there.

There are only three major social media sites in America. Twitter comes in at third place with around three hundred million members; roughly the population of our proud country. We just launched Twitter on every state in the country, we’ve had enough of this. Instagram takes second with nine hundred million, and in the first place, as everyone miserably knows, is Facebook. Two billion people are on Facebook, nearly a third of all the people on Earth. That should be good for Americans since it is an American company.

But it isn’t.

Facebook has been the enemy since at least 2015. I ended up falling down the political rabbit-hole because of Facebook ads spreading around fake news attacks on Hillary Clinton. It didn’t seem like Karl Rove or the Koch Brothers, either. I was reminded of Wal-Mart in Taos, and I entered the fray in dead earnest. I have been here every day since then, watching as resurgent fascism begins to sweep like wildfire over the world.

The battlefield back then as now was cybernetic, and our struggle was the first proxy war we had fought with the Russians since Afghanistan. Of the many battles we have fought in since then, 99 out of 100 have been on Facebook. There’s a movement around, #DeleteFacebook, and this is to be recommended with the highest degree of seriousness for John Q. Citizen. But for us, it isn’t an option. For all its many flaws, Facebook is where we reach most of our people, and that is worth any possible risk to me.

Before that, I always thought it was just something for old ladies to trade pictures of their cats on- and it is. Cat pictures are about the only thing you’re not getting in trouble for these days.

Because of what Facebook has done to us this week, and why, it’s going to be harder than usual for us to get this article out. Make no mistake at all; they are suppressing loyal Democrats online.

The big thing is that they unpublished our dear good Millennial Democrats- Hawaii Page. 3.1 thousand Likes. We often reach upwards of a hundred thousand weekly. Our Directory Page, Millennial Democrats-America has now been shadowbanned, e.g. our posts are denied access to their News Feed. We were supposed to get off restriction today, but for the fourth week in a row, the first post-not in any way in violation of Facebook’s Terms of Service- was enough to restrict us with a shadowban again. For years they denied they even knew what shadowbanning was, and then a month or two ago they actually patented it. Lol.

Ohio and Oregon are likewise restricted, which is odd since Ohio is not a busy state for us. I guess they figured it was for good measure. Four of our friends are on restriction, and for nothing. Facebook is not even warning people anymore. Two of our friends have had their actual accounts deactivated, again with no reason and they also have disabled even our ability to Report that our Page is broken. They do not respond to our appeals. They literally will not accept our pleas.

Facebook deactivated our Page, and then refused even to let us file a report asking for help, as you can see in the picture.

You ever saw that movie Hobo with a Shotgun? Rutger Hauer, you know? Great movie. Rutger looks like he’s been abusing methamphetamine, but that’s part of its charm. It reminds me of the Facebook algorithm. Because what Mark Zuckerberg has done is to take that infamous algorithm they use as a weapon of suppression millions of times more powerful than Bull Connor’s police dogs and file it down to a hair-trigger. Now it blows up at anything, whether it be true or not.

We are tired of fighting this alone.

It is time for the big boys to get involved. Feel free to consider us a resource, guys. This guy here, who threatened to kill me? I would like nothing better than the chance to impale him-with the law.

And there you have it; a psychopathic hacker sending emails threatening murder. Whether or not you agree with me isn't the point. I am an American, your countryman. If Warren does win, these same people will be attacking you. Be careful, fellow Democrats, not to make a devil's bargain. We are not enemies in my eyes, just opponents for now. I don't want to see you lot get killed, even if you don't return my sentiments.
And there you have it; a psychopathic foreign hacker sending emails to Democrats threatening murder.

What we face now is an information struggle, friends and countrymen, and the prize is the soul of the world order. They want to bring in the awful hybrid socialism used in places like China and Hungary. Will we continue along in the proud liberal American tradition that has brought us to our perch atop the world? Or will we let some slimebag techie like Mark Zuckerberg pick and choose our presidents for us, along with savage dictators like Vladimir Putin? For a real Democrat, there is no choice to make at all. We’re going to fight them.

And we’re asking for your help. Tell everyone you know. Call your local Representatives, write to your Senators. You can skip the White House, though. These days the assaults on our country are being ordered from it.

 

Biden for President, Warren for Vice? It’s Possible.

Biden/Warren2020? It's possible!
As next year’s election season draws in ever closer and looms over Planet Earth like the Apocalypse, all the world is wondering what American voters will do next year. Will Donald Trump and his evil divisions and his foolhardy ways be thrown out on his ear, or will they be codified and set into stone in a new Dark Ages to take place until at least 2024? Only one thing is certain: 2020 will be the most critical election of our lifetimes, except for 2016.
After months of uncertainty, former vice-president Joe Biden decided to run. We soon endorsed Biden as the only sane choice, knowing in our hearts only that Trump must go and that a socialist must not replace him. Now everything depends on him. The blown gasket of Bernie Sanders gave second-place Elizabeth Warren a big boost and set the chessboard up for next year’s races. The game will be between the two of them. When it ends, and it comes time for Joe Biden to accept the nomination, it is our opinion that he should at least consider picking Warren as his running mate and making her the vice president.
The nature of politics requires shifting alliances at times, and it is in that context that I first began to think about the possible efficacy of running a Biden/Warren ticket. If executed correctly the play could end up repairing the gaplike rift that was torn in the Democratic Party by Bernie Sanders back in 2016. The long term health of the Party would be likely to improve, which is critical to America’s future.
In essence, it will depend on what Warren decides to do after she realizes that she is going to lose to Joe Biden beginning on Super Tuesday and heading into next summer. Will she link hands with Bernie as her chosen vice-president in a wrongheaded attempt to land herself in the Oval Office? Or will she do the right thing and throw her support behind Joe, the only one of us who has what it takes to beat Donald Trump, and offer to throw in as his chosen vice president?
It’s one of the biggest decisions a person could ever have to make, and we can’t say with any sort of certainty that Joe would even consider picking her. Many believe that he would not, but I’m not sure I agree. Joe Biden was the first person in politics Elizabeth Warren ever spoke to, as a friend of Dr. Phil’s, and his magnanimity in engaging her in a debate is how she became a recognized figure. If she has any decency at all, and I believe she does, she will harbor some gratitude towards him for creating her. For his part, Biden seems to like Warren and to have taken some interest in her career, and the race between the two of them has remained civil. I say it’s possible and more than possible. I say it’s a good idea. We should try putting it out there before she throws in with the other side irrevocably.
The fake leftist organization known as the Justice Democrats have been pushing Warren hard to formally align with Bern and make their two camps one, effectively dividing the Party forever and leaving us with a truly uphill struggle going into the general election against Trump, a man who is as vicious as a sewer rat and has a pack of them waiting behind.
They have dangled many a tasty bait before her eyes. But she still hasn’t fully bitten yet. She screwed up bad in Texas campaigning against Henry Cuellar for the socialist trying to primary that good Democrat out, but she does not have to cast her lot with them all the way. She is still in a good place for sucking it up and making Biden a good vice.
That is the only reason why it’s even worth it to write this article. We’re not saying it’s a sure thing, or even a likely thing, or any of that. We’re saying it’s possible, that it makes sense, and that it makes enough sense to be worth speculating on publicly. I would like to see it happen. But it absolutely has to be on the correct terms, the terms we’ve been talking about over here for three years now, the terms of America’s moderate core, and the core of the Democratic Party.
In next year’s general election, it’s all going to hinge on our ability to show the people that we are the sane and moderate ones. America desperately needs to return to normalcy after four years of living in the zoo, and we have to show the people that in the vacuum created by the Trump era we haven’t warped too much for that to be possible.
Above all, we have got to tell the people we are not for any sort of socialism. The Democratic Party’s entire future hinges on making sure we say that clearly enough. Trump’s entire reelection strategy revolves around pointing the finger at all the far-out things said and advocated for by the Squad‘s most famous and controversial member, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Having to defend her all the time really sucks, and she’s only a freshman Representative.
Warren’s plans are too close to socialism for us to get behind her entering into the White House- except, just maybe, as a vice.
The strategic requirements of the position are hard to measure in a dissolving political landscape like this one. The evaluation can only be unclear. Given that, we should preserve all our options as long as possible. Warren could still make a good vice, and it is my opinion therefore that, annoying as she is, as annoying as her Warren Weevils are, we do not attack in earnest just yet. She could still be of use.
Warren has never declared openly as our enemy, although campaigning with the “Democratic” Socialists and the Justice Democrats in Texas comes pretty close; to get rid of Trump, I would suffer it for the time being and support her as a vice-presidential candidate.
She has flirted with both sides but remained uncommitted; certainly this is the sign of a turncoat, but that’s just life sometimes. We need her to pacify and bring into the voting booths the radicals on our behalf, which is the reason we’re congratulating her cannibalizing of the Bern.
She’s the only one who could have done that.
Warren was the first choice of the fake left to hamstring Hillary Clinton back in 2016, not Bernie. The campaign was invented by a socialist and was called Run Warren Run, a reference to a scene in the movie Forrest Gump where a mentally retarded person is fleeing rock-chasing tormentors.
You don’t know whether to laugh or cry.
Warren didn’t bite that time, either, and so six months to the day after they’d started, Run Warren Run shuttered its doors and Bernie Sanders became a manufactured folk hero, someone the right-wing could trust to take a dump in every Democratic lawn. Her instincts were decent enough back then to let her know she had no chance of winning.
In her heart, she must already know that is the case again.
Poll aggregators like this one from RealClearPolitics show out completely the false media narrative of Biden having a co-frontrunner. Biden is beating Warren like a flea-bitten animal in the overwhelming majority of polls, and any poll where more than just rich white college kids are asked for their opinion, and tying with her even there. On her own, in the driver’s seat, Warren’s case is hopeless.

But she could still do some good for us. Her judgment in the history books will depend on her being selfless and sensible enough to throw her lot behind us and Joe Biden.
In closing, if Warren can bring the radical leftists to the booths (at least, those that aren’t closeted right-wingers), and Trump can send the sane Republicans in there for us once and for all, Biden can bring the moderate core of America, the one that has held this country together during thick and thin, and the Democrats can retake the White House. Of course the whole concept may be about as substantial as a Beach Boys song, but even so.
Wouldn’t it be nice?

 

Donald Trump Just Invoked the Civil War on Twitter.

Donald Trump, in essence, has threatened Democrats with civil war for moving to impeach him.

The third year of the Donald Trump era has seen its most dramatic moments yet, and its most dangerous ones. He shut the government down to distract from the Russiagate investigation’s special counsel Robert Mueller’s Report and its tale of justice obstructed by a president who’d taken leave of reason. He boasted of receiving foreign help after more than two years already denying it, he spent the summer rubbing it in our faces, and then he did it again. Things aren’t getting better. Hillary Clinton called him a ‘corrupt human tornado’.

No doubt, Madam President.

As I’m writing this thank-you to all the people who have helped us pull this nightmare situation back to something close to life again, I see that Donald Trump just went on Twitter and accused us of getting ready to cause a “Civil War like fracture” by impeaching him for being the most corrupt president in American (human) history.

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump

….If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.” Pastor Robert Jeffress,

Trump, come on now, man. Can you really still be blaming others? You pressured the president of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son, dude. Real talk. You are not in the position you once placed the Central Park Five in, when you wished them executed for a rape they had yet to go to court for committing, just for being fire.
This is not on anybody else. We didn’t want to impeach you; I ought to know. I have been helping Nancy Pelosi beg them not to try and kill you (metaphorically, and I mean that, too. If someone were to write in and say, I’m going to kill the President, I would turn their ass into the Secret Service with alacrity) for years.
As outraged as I was at the way you got in bed with the Russians, as much of a nightmare as these last few years have been, I don’t literally want the man dead. He’s not worth it.
But I cannot be sure he feels the same way about me, nor any of us. He’s behaving more and more like the cornered animal I’ve always believed him to be, and some of his supporters are crazy. There is no doubt about that. These people have threatened my life before, and while I’m pretty sure most of them are blowing smoke, there’s been a few that have made sure I watch my step.
This is not unique to me, either, but is something most Democratic organizers live with. Facebook has become a terrifying place no less than the deep web and threatens at all times to spill out into the real world. Take care of yourselves, folks, and each other. Who knows what these people will do; it wasn’t long ago a crazed Trump supporter slaughtered nearly three dozen people in El Paso, Texas.
There’s not really much else to say about this; it just kind of goes along with what we’ve been saying. The moment requires calm and caution. Please help us to spread them around.

 

 

Impeachment Countdown- What Just Happened, and What Comes Next.

Donald Trump is going down, and trouble in the streets may go down too. Adopt a buddy system, folks, and organize every way you are able. Do not take for granted that nothing will happen- history has proven many times that it just may. We cannot let ourselves be turned into victims.

It’s official, folks. The whistleblower complaint regarding Donald Trump’s misuse of his power, trying to pressure the president of Ukraine into investigating Hunter Biden, the son of 2020 Democratic presidential frontrunner and former vice-president Joe Biden, has acted as a fuse, and the people of America are now making it clear that we have finally had enough. The House of Representatives has the 218 votes it will need to file impeachment proceedings and bring this thing home; the word is the actual vote will happen by Thanksgiving.

That means, in case you were wondering, that the very last moments of the 2010s will be spent with one of the world’s most worthless people, Donald Trump, on everybody’s mind. He’s already won, for his own part, because all he ever wanted was to be the center of attention. And now he is.

What a way to say goodbye to a decade that started out so filled with Hope and Change. Republicans like Scott Walker in Wisconsin hadn’t technically taken office yet; there was no way to know for most how bad it was going to be. One doesn’t have to wonder very hard how Obama must feel when he reads the papers today. The man himself was black, and so is despised by many he turned his hair grey to help. On the right and far left alike, his legacy was shunned and cast aside.

If anyone should be reading this who did not vote for Hillary Clinton, if you voted for Stein or abstained for the sheer joy of screaming out ‘Bernie or Bust!’- Know that this is on you, and resolve to change your ways.

Stand on the side of decency and moderation and compromise, and pitch in to help. We’re glad to have you; God knows we cannot spare you. But know this to the core of your heart: What you did back then helped to cause this avalanche.

This country has been getting torn apart all along, but this will be beyond that altogether. Trump’s base harbors many who want a war; things may really get ugly. Know who your friends are, be organized, and be ready. “There is no joy in this,” said Nancy Pelosi, and she is right. We should never forget that. It is a sad thing, that we should have to struggle to not rejoice in the downfall of our own president. Even George W. Bush and all his administration gave citizens of this country to reconcile with a troubled conscience, never brought us to this. We are living through the Chinese curse about interesting times, but there can be no doubt at all they are historical. It’s time now to talk about what has just happened, and what might be coming next.

Remember when the Mueller Report didn’t end up putting Trump behind bars? That was the end of the beginning, I wrote. The two have taken place on the same timeline. Back then, I predicted that Trump would think himself utterly above the law, after that. I predicted he would become increasingly more reckless and brazen in his lawlessness until finally, sooner or later, he did something too big for even the Republicans to ignore, or at least big enough to unify the Democratic Party’s many wild hearts. This incident actually took place in July, so this really is like a delayed effect drug.

The facts drove the timing and the decision,” Nancy Pelosi told POLITICO in a brief interview. “And that’s what I’ve said all along — when we get the facts, we will be ready. And we’re ready.”

Pressuring another country’s president to investigate the children of his chief political rival, Joe Biden, has proven to be it, folks, because make no mistake about it, folks. Those are the facts. That is why when the good news finally came that our national leadership was ready to proceed, we said impeach.

Back in May, the new Attorney General, William Barr had an announcement to make in the immediate aftermath of the Mueller Report. An investigation into the “origins” into the Russiagate investigation, he said, would soon be underway. He had already received a letter of complaint from Robert Mueller, who objected of Barr’s misrepresentation of his work. But that didn’t seem to bother him. Barr himself is now in it, up to his neck. His name is all over the anonymous whistleblower’s complaint, as is Rudy Giuliani’s and also Kurt Volker‘s, the Ukranian ambassador who just resigned this evening. The gist of the complaint is below, with thanks to FactCheck.org.

“In the course of my official duties, I have received information from multiple U.S. Government officials that the President of the United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election,” the whistleblower complaint reads. “This interference includes, among other things, pressuring a foreign country to investigate one of the President’s main domestic political rivals. The President’s personal lawyer, Mr. Rudolph Giuliani, is a central figure in this effort. Attorney General [William] Barr appears to be involved as well.”

According to the anonymous whistleblower’s complaint, the conversations that led to all this getting going were started for that reason. So their counter-investigation seems to have led them into this fix directly, which is the clearest indication we have that Mueller’s work led Trump down the road from the probably impeachable to the one hundred percent impeachable.

A few days ago-before the whistleblower’s complaint had been released- I wasn’t so sure this was impeachable, because- well because it all seems impeachable to me, I guess. He’s done so much already, why is this different? Is this really worse than having colluded with Russia in the first place? Collusion isn’t a legal term, said Mueller- which to me was a great reason to keep using it. I never understood how welcoming foreign interference and having one’s cronies help it along could be called anything else, but Mueller said no. Who am I to argue, I thought sadly.

Then Putin comes boasting onto the television about how the Mueller investigation was “A mountain giving birth to a mouse.”

Even that mouse is taller than you, Vlad. I hope you’re enjoying life as the butler of Xi Jinping. That’s what happens when you stab America in the back. You end up sanctioned, desperate for influence and cash, selling your country’s oil to China, and ending up a BUTLER.

Garcon! We’re ready to order, you butler, you. Drive me a pizza over, all the way from Moscow. I could use a shoeshine, too. Now that Trump won’t be able to launder money for you anymore, you’re nobody. Pretty soon someone else will be in charge of Russia, and you will be nothing at all. Speaking of which, we now know Trump told Sergey Lavrov in June of 2017 that Russia’s interference into our election didn’t bother him. That too came out today.

Breaking news earlier tonight said that Trump has locked down conversations between two other world leaders as well. One of them was the new crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad bin Salman. The second, of course, was Vladimir Putin. They’ve been putting it all in place for a Russiagate 2.0. Now, look at them.

Vladimir Putin is finding himself the recipient of bad karma, and so is Donald Trump. You cannot spit at God forever. Sooner or later, something will happen that reveals your human nature, and you’ll be forced to remember what we all must, sooner or later. You are human, you have feet of clay, and if you persist too far in your imitation of Caligula, you’re going to end up gutted on the palace steps as he was. Hillary Clinton popped up yesterday and said look, we’re dealing with Trump- the ‘Corrupt Human Tornado‘. His day is coming.

So here’s what we know so far. The anonymous whistleblower, Deep Throat 2.0, has had his complaint released and reviewed by Congress. It states clearly that Trump abused his executive power tried to get Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 election (‘soliciting’), that he pressured Ukraine’s President Zelensky to do it for him, and that he tried to cover it up. After he saw what Trump had done, he blew the whistle. Enough is enough.

The document is seven pages long and details multiple efforts to force Zelensky to “Play Ball”. The term they’re throwing around is an old Latin phrase meaning “Something for something”, quid pro quo (Which Fox News is revoltingly trying to say is not in this context illegal, frequent molesters of the law and truth that they are).

Zelensky badly wanted Trump to have a meeting with Trump, something Trump was trying to work him on, and the latter had already instructed our vice-president, dutiful Mike Penise, to cancel a similar meeting on him back in May. Military aid may have been on the table as well, which may have something to do with the recent Ukrainian military withdrawal from Donbas, a key outpost on the front of their war with Russia. Nothing would surprise us anymore. Trump withheld their money, the Ukrainians retreated from Donbas, and four days later they got their money. Putin hits a lick.

Quid pro quo.

A hearing was held on Capitol Hill Thursday morning wherein Joseph Maguire, the acting Director of National Intelligence testified before Congress. The hearing began moments after the whistleblower complaint was released. Maguire said the case that was discussed today is “unique and unprecedented” compared to other whistleblower cases he is aware of. He also said the whistleblower acted in good faith.

No doubt he did.

The Mueller Report proved not to be so much of a mouse, in the long run. It pointed the way to Deutsche Bank’s money laundering problem with Russian oligarchs, which is going to be the foundation of our argument. Had Trump never gotten in bed with the Russians, had his campaign’s blatant collusion really been a delusion, Mueller- the nation’s top bloodhound-would have never had to write it in the first place, nor would he have discovered the true reason Trump was peddling Russian woo- the fact that he, for decades, has been laundering money for the Russians and was thus completely compromised long before the Russians decided to hack our election back then, in horrible 2016.

Trump’s plump rump is in a slump. He is not getting out of this one. He has played with the law as if it were a game his whole life. He ran an illegal charity, an illegal university, and an illegal presidential campaign. He got away with the last one, or at least, that’s how he felt post-Mueller, slouching along like a female warthog in rut and boasting. But as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, No lie can live forever. He’s still blowing his mouth for now, but that won’t last. Expect him to behave as a wounded animal does and expect the same from his followers.
