The Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats has gone “rogue.”
By now you’ve heard his statement:
“Russia is the worst foreign power threatening the U.S. with cyberattacks, and that warning lights are “blinking red as terror threats were before 9/11”.
Coats claims Russia stands as an imminent threat to our midterm elections.
Russian hacking isn’t new information.
Back in December of 2016, the NYT reported, Russians hacked the Republican National Committee’s computer systems in addition to their attacks on Democratic organizations, but did not release the information they attained from Republican networks.
Russia instead used that information to claim ownership of the party. Since the hack of the RNC servers, the Republican Party has been a Russian subordinate. I recently heard the GOP referred to as the Government of Putin. Well, this GOP led Congress picked it’s side long ago, and it isn’t team U.S.A.
Russia has used the GOP to infiltrate the U.S. Government. This is now Putin’s White House, where the truth is rogue, the media is an “enemy to the people”, what you hear Trump say was never said… and what you see with your own eyes never happened. The truth does not coincide with Trump’s contradictions regarding Russia.
Congress is in solidarity with Trump who openly embraces Putin. Since the Helsinki summit, the GOP has:
- Blocked a motion to subpoena the translator for Putin and Trump’s Helsinki summit,
- Blocked a proposed funding renewal for election security,
- And called it a week… see ya on Monday.
These actions by congress, including the three day weekend, are in service to themselves.
Russia has waged a cyber war against us, by installing their agent (Trump), and now they have moved on to ensure RussiAmerica has tenure.
We are not without blame here.
Fewer than 60% of Americans vote. That percentage decreases to 40% for midterm elections.
Democrats in the U.S. outnumber republicans by 12 million but, thanks to Putin’s successful propaganda machine, 29% fewer democrats showed up to vote in 2016.
Two years have passed since Putin gave Trump the election, still congress hasn’t taken action to secure the next vote.
We can fight for paper ballots, but this congress will not implement a change that will result in their own demise.
And if you haven’t read enough to motivate you, how’s this? There has been a voter purge since federal protections have been lifted—
So, what can we do?
We vote absentee. Mail-in ballots are paper. All but 13 states allow a mail-in vote. If you live in one of those 13 states, vote early. Early votes are also paper.
It is in every registered voter’s best interest to confirm their voter registration has not been tampered with prior to Election Day. Check the spelling of your name, and the address.
Contact your local division of elections or go to vote.usa.gov, or vote.gov
While you’re there, tell them you want to vote on paper.
This GOP- Government of Putin- must be abolished.
