  1. I saw a lot of these on my Facebook feed before the election. Sometimes shared by numerous friends. I worked myself into a tizzy refuting them with snopes. I couldn't understand how they could create or believe this tripe. Nice to know what was really gong on.

  2. What does NBC think about Google & Facebook promoting Democrat organizations in their search results and purposely suppressing Conservative news organizations ? Google also purposely alters the "trending" videos here on Youtube.  
    The bottom line is this: Russia spent about $100,000 on political ads in the US while NBC spent countless hours and billions of dollars promoting fake news on Trump and ignoring Democrat scandals and negative news about the Democrat party. Google and Facebook are more of a threat to the US than Russia could ever be.

  3. In this country, we have the Koch Brothers, the Mercers, Erik Prince and our own Congress and Senate and corporate media to undermine democratic institutions. It's a complete joke to think that Russia and/or Putin would bother with our presidential election. But it shows you the power of the media and the Deep State.
