OPEC didn't exclusively ruin the shale market with flooding

We did our part for sure

The US has been the largest world oil producer since 2014ish

OPEC world market share isn't even a tremendous deal any more

It matters but it's not like it's the 70s or something which people seem to think

I'll post an info graphic later

This WaPo intelligence leak story is everywhere.

I don't think there's been a week where Trump hasn't done something egregious.

This title is extremely deceiving compared to the content

It looks strongly like Seth Rich leaked the DNC documents to Wikileaks as many have speculated

Family of slain DNC staffer Seth Rich blasts detective over report of WikiLeaks link - Fox News

So what's all this Russia shit then? Smoke? It took me absolutely forever to get in the Russia train, and I'm not so eager to hop off it.

New theory

Russians capitalized on the momentum of Seths leak to sneak in and activate operatives, or use rainy day blackmail material against the USA. It's worth noting that Assange himself is potentially a blackmail victim or otherwise compromised.

Fake news style propaganda campaigns are old and never this effective for elections. But this time they had a catalyst. There's a shitty conspiracy theory I linked a while back about why Russians can't be involved. The one thing it got right is that digital propaganda campaigns aren't effective enough to swing much of anything. They have a long history, with recent entries in the modern age showing this as well.

Side note, my personal favorite misinformation campaign is the myth that carrots are exceptionally good for the eyes. To conceal the invention of radar, the British published fake news about how their pilots ate carrots to naturally enhance night vision. The Germans bought it, and most of the World today still believes it.

Pretty sure Obama did something similar for Hillary about Benghazi

This isn't really one to write home about

It's all about Russia for the impeachment

Default Re: Berni for President

a little something I wrote up




Impeachin' (The President of the United States of America)

Ruinin' the country,
gonna be a lotta impeachin'
Ruining the country,
gonna be some sweet impeachin'
Ruinin' the country,
gonna be a lotta impeachin'
Ruinin' the country,
gonna be a lotta impeachin'

Impeachin' scummy orange man
Who was put there by Putin
From Trump Tower downtown
If we wanna make America great
We'll impeach him right away
Spray tanned crybaby shame

Twitter temper tantrum Donalds pissed
Russian puppet won't be missed
Should have elected that woman,
Trump thought he'd be able to hide
Made a little treason with Russian spies
Fired Comey when the man saw his plan go awry

Donalds impeachment, impeachment yes, please
Donalds impeachment fills me with glee

Look out!

Except that that would not have been an investigation of Obama, it was an investigation of Hilary. And Obama did not then fire the head of the FBI. And Obama did not twee about the existence of "tapes" with the director.
