Amazing Fake news generated by Russian propaganda machine.

See article from 2015 documents how Russians propaganda staged fake ISIS attacks on Chemical Plants, Ebola outbreaks, police shootings.

They created fake filming to back them up, false Wikipedia pages, and dummy websites.

Yes, the Russian government does everything in its power to gain one more ounce of power.

Just like the other 195ish States around the globe.

Thanks for the update though.

The Russian goal is all about power for Putin, his ministers, and his collective of Oligarchs.

Each profits from the other and collectively they are a very great political force.
They control Russian elections, the Russian court system, and can shutdown Facebook when proof of their corruption gets too close.

It takes a lot of power to build and maintain a billion dollar house.

Most of the long term ministers working for Putin also have mega-homes purchased from bribe money.

Trump is not a threat to them because he sees bribery as just the cost of doing business. He himself is like a Russian oligarch paying off government officials, paying for Pam Bondi's campaign etc.

I agree Russian seem to have an hankering for lying and propaganda, but it's very reminiscent of democrats than conservatives.

It just goes to show that you cannot believe everything you read and see on the internet.

This reminds me of the manipulation that the mass Lefty media orchestrated on the American public when in the lead up to the election they would promote skewed poll numbers to pump up Hillary like they were trying to convince the voters that she had the election in the bag. They also hyped up negative news or flat out made up fake news about Trump to discredit him, something they haven't given up on.

I wouldn't call it amazing, most of it is poorly done. Why in the heck would anyone believe everything they see and hear anyway? Do people pick up a newspaper and believe everything that's written? Man, I sure hope not. Good grief, it's tenfold on the internet.

So true, the democrats switched away from white Trump supporter scapegoat that didn't work out to the Russian scapegoat.
