Re: US Election 2016

I'm pretty sure the Good old US of A has influenced, if not directly intervened in many a foreign election if it so suited them.

How does Statements forensically prove anything ?

In basic science of proving someone or something has done something, we don't rely on just what someone says. Where is the hard evidence ? The servers were not examined by the FBI and they never asked for access to them to check them.

And it is like McCafee says, Russian intelligence, if it was actually guilty, wouldn't use a year out of date, malware program and that they would not be so stupid enough to have an IP address that links back to the hackers in Russia. It's basic IT lesson 101, if you going to hack in to someone or something, don't leave an obvious trace that points back to you.

It is absolutely laughable, that this is being spun out they way it has been.

The only person who is to blame for losing the US Election, is Hillary Clinton and then the DNC, for believing she could win it.

The DNC should have not stitched up, Bernie Sanders by rigging (or should we say, influencing, if the shoe fits, the DNC can be accused of influencing as well) the Primaries in Hillary's favor and giving her the questions before going in those TV debates with him.
Do you seriously think that the security services in America have accused Russia of messing with the election without evidence ,if you do think that then you are on a different planet to everyone else and don't forget there will be plenty of evidence that hasn't been released for security reasons.Also don't forget that Trump has now accepted in the face of the evidence shown to him that the Russians did mess with the election or at least try too because he has stated that it is the security services fault for allowing it to happen

Re: US Election 2016

The President-Elect's Chief of Staff disagrees with you, Mick, and states that Trump thinks the Russians are behind it...

http://www.thedailybeast.com/article...DB&via=FB_Page
Quote:
Reince Priebus, Trump’s incoming White House chief of staff, said the president-elect accepts the conclusion that Russia was behind the cyberattacks that targeted the DNC and Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta, but blamed the DNC for its alleged lack of cybersecurity.

“He’s not denying that entities in Russia were behind this particular hacking campaign,” Priebus said on “Fox News Sunday.” He added that the Russian government has the “primary” responsibility for the hacks.

Re: US Election 2016

Mick come on your going a bit beyond here no one has any doubt that Russia were playing fast and loose with hacking except you. Also don't hold mcaffee up as an authority he just jumps onto anything that gets him on a screen and I can't remember the last person that used his software for any length of time mainly because their pc\laptop got overwhelmed by everything his product didn't pick up. Russia needs a strong presence to limit it or putin will continue to push till he goes too far and creates a problem that can't be fixed. Right now we all have to hope trump will stepup and take on that role rather then being Putin's cooperative friend.

Re: US Election 2016

In my view, and Trump has accepted that Russia has a say in the election. Then President Obama. Must say STOP the ***** swearing in ceremony. Until it proved beyonf Doubt that the Russia DID help Trump win.

IF it proves AFTER the date, it could serious problems in America

Surely IF the FBI found these so called emails by Clinton. Which has caused the major problem. And the director of The FBI was a republican. Then it makes this election more sicker than it was.

Re: US Election 2016

Looks like anti-vaccinations was something Trump said during the campaign that he did mean: http://arstechnica.co.uk/science/201...accine-safety/

Quote:
Today, President-elect Donald Trump met with a backer of the false idea that vaccines may be behind the rise in autism diagnoses. The result seems to be a worst-case scenario: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has accepted a position within the Trump administration, where he will chair a group evaluating vaccine safety and scientific integrity.

and Russia might have something on Trump:

Quote:
Classified documents presented last week to President Obama and President-elect Trump included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump, multiple US officials with direct knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.

Re: US Election 2016

Google "4chan Fake news Trump", they have apparently spun a fake story and parts of the dishonest media being so desperate to run with any Trump scandal, ran with it. Trump has Tweeted in last hour, all in caps :"FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCHHUNT!"

After reading the following : http://townhall.com/tipsheet/christi...e-cia-n2269811 , Fake news it is.
