DNI John Ratfuck has sold his soul to the soulless GOP ideology of “Maintain Power and Control At Any Cost”

He must be removed ASAP.

Every election in our lifetimes was rigged, but to an increasing degree particularly since about 1979. The extent of the interference is actually made worse by intelligence meddling, not improved by their monitoring. Intelligence, to be clear, is not on our side. There is no entity, no organization which has made political manipulation a point of pride more so than the US intelligence community, and ever since Carter fired hundreds of them for corruption as soon as he was elected they, went immediately into high gear focusing their efforts on manipulating US elections assuring it would not happen to them again. Reagan was their first victory, Bush too - a former CIA director himself. Before turning their focus on US elections, they had over half a century manipulating elections in foreign nations - hell it was practically all they did, and largely with the same result, allowing only the most ruthless and corrupt persons to rule in any nation in which they intervened worldwide. The hypocrisy of complaining about Russian interference is astounding, when Ukraine’s anti Russian government itself is fully the result of US meddling and manipulations, and on the part of democrats too.

What drives 95% of those who vote, to continue to support the same two parties, that lie, deny, and murder in the names of all Americans?

We are a fucking insane nation of “Masochistic Monsters” addicted to voting away our freedom to Elitist politicians that have only one goal in life.

To have more. For themselves.

Good one there Diesel Dan.

Scaling back security briefings is a euphemism for keeping secrets.

We don’t want to hear the complete degradation of the left, or the democratic party.We have some very good democratic congress critters, and more to come, and from the past.
a short list:
Sen. William Proxmire
Sen. Feingold
Sen. Baldwin
Rep. Pocan
And our 8th district assemblywoman Amanda Stuck whom I’ve followed since she was an activist and is now running for congress. As far as I’m concerned her claim-to-fame is her being part of a coalition of left-right folks that want to work together, when possible. Hard work these days.

“Shocking, undemocratic, authoritarian, immoral, evil, unprecedented, unconstitutional, etc.” I’ve become numb to the headlines telling us how outrageously wrong Trump and the GOP are. Seems they can do anything they want and there is no party of resistance anywhere in sight, so the headlines of outrage are followed by impotent nothingness and no longer have any impact on me. I’ve come to accept that every day will be a shitshow that is beyond my, or anyone’s, ability to do anything about. The US is a failed state.

LOL. Well, at least you won’t write “shouldn’t of” or “should of” or “could of” or some other illiterate claptrap.

País = Country
Fracasado = Failed

Agreed. That is all. A dumb comment from me to say that I agreed with you.
