Quote from: rekcuf on July 26, 2016, 11:43:33 AMI would understand the Putin angle, IF--the Russians had doctored the emails. Otherwise, it's pointless to complain about how you were exposed. PS: The Dems were allegedly warned by the FBI months ago.
Quote from: pyewacket on July 26, 2016, 01:03:11 PMThis is what I appreciate about Bellgab- members will provide more information to confirm or dispute the articles we post.I remember a time when people regularly 'split their tickets' and voted for candidates of both parties because they represented similar demographic groups and issues that people cared about. Not like today with the sharp divisions and animosity that has divided us. I did look at the link provided and have to ask if it's common for a subordinate of a candidate to solicit money from the opposition party? I was surprised at the initial story I posted and remain so after seeing the additional linked letter provided by HedgehogNorman- interesting user name BTW- is there a story to that?
Quote from: VtaGeezer on July 26, 2016, 11:36:01 AMWhenever MSNBC people mention the leaks, they show an image of Putin on split-screen. They're vying with CNN to become the Clinton Ministry of Patriotic Information.
Quote from: Lt.Uhura on July 27, 2016, 12:07:35 AMHmm...I wonder why Putin wants Trump elected?http://www.vocativ.com/343010/guccifer-2-0-dnc-hack/
Quote from: 21st Century Man on July 27, 2016, 12:17:42 AMMost likely he is against Clinton because he had to pay the Clinton Foundation a million dollars a few years ago in order for Hillary to look on Russia favorably during the Obama presidency. The administration did for awhile then for some reason relations iced up again after Hillary stepped down.
Quote from: Lt.Uhura on July 27, 2016, 12:42:26 AMMeanwhile Trump and Putin seem to have a curious mutual admiration thing going. Relations between the two countries have warmed up since the Cold War of course, but I think Putin is eager to engage with Trump and exploit his political naÃ¯vetÃ©.
Quote from: Lt.Uhura on July 27, 2016, 12:50:26 AMSpeaking of the Cold War...associating with Communists used to be such a taboo. Like Reefer Madness, lol![attachment id=1 msg=870424]
Quote from: 21st Century Man on July 27, 2016, 12:54:47 AMThere is that. Putin's ego knows no bounds. He will likely turn the tables on Trump, given the chance. You can't trust Vlad.
Quote from: mikuthing01 on July 27, 2016, 12:25:22 AMObama banned Izhmash Kalashnikov's from import by executive order and Russia sold a lot of them to us. Trump would allow them to be imported again (i hope) because America can not build a decent kalashnikov. Izhmash was renamed Kalashnikov Concern and was ready to import a lot of new models and with the stroke of a pen they were gone. Also 7n6 ammo was banned but that was done by the ATF.
Quote from: Dr. MD MD on July 27, 2016, 01:00:51 AMYou seem smarter than someone who would fall for this. Doesn't it seem convenient that the Dems would wait until their convention to reveal this nefarious communist plot from a country that hasn't been communist in 25 years ONLY after they've been exposed in an actual scandal to subvert democracy? Where is all the alphabet agencies intelligence on this?! This doesn't SCREAM desperation to you?
Quote from: 21st Century Man on July 27, 2016, 12:57:43 AMLOL. I bought the Warner Archive DVD of that movie but haven't watched it yet. I think that was based on the exploits of Herbert Philbrick who my Mom through her work became friendly with. He was over to our house several times and we'd go to Washington DC to watch him speak in the 70's. I may be mixed up about the film. Maybe it was I led 3 lives or something like that.
Quote from: norland2424 on July 27, 2016, 01:07:15 AMcommie or not who ever becomes president shouldn't be naive and fully trust putin
Quote from: 21st Century Man on July 27, 2016, 01:15:20 AMWell yes, MD. I was just trying to be a bit comforting and agreeable. I'm not worried about Russia. Hell, they are probably more of a capitalist country than we are now.It is funny how the Democrats are attacking Russia now. Where were they in 80's?
Quote from: Lt.Uhura on July 27, 2016, 01:07:21 AMOh please write up one of your excellent film reviews after you watch it, 21st! I bet it's a hoot, lol!
Quote from: Dr. MD MD on July 27, 2016, 01:12:18 AMumm...yeah...ok...but only until it's not convenient to bogeyman him anymore. When Hillary needs to shift the shadow projector to another political chess piece on the world board she'll let you know. Now go back to sleep.
Quote from: SciFiAuthor on July 27, 2016, 01:13:18 AMPolitical naÃ¯vetÃ©? The guy just gamed the system and rose to the top. Same thing Putin did. Two peas in a pod. That said, it's better than the crook the leftwing establishment conned you guys into accepting.
Quote from: norland2424 on July 27, 2016, 01:20:41 AMit seems the good Dr forgot about this man. "Alexander Litvinenko was a former officer of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) and KGB, who fled from court prosecution in Russia and received political asylum in the United Kingdom.On 1 November 2006, Litvinenko suddenly fell ill and was hospitalized. He died three weeks later, becoming the first confirmed victim of lethal polonium-210-induced acute radiation syndrome. Litvinenko's allegations about the misdeeds of the FSB and his public deathbed accusations that Russian president Vladimir Putin was behind his unusual malady resulted in worldwide media coverage"
Quote from: Dr. MD MD on July 27, 2016, 01:32:27 AMIt may be time for you to to start looking a little deeper than just the headlines. You think we've never done shit like that to our own people when we deemed it necessary?
Quote from: Lt.Uhura on July 27, 2016, 01:23:37 AMSorry, but I'd never consider Trump to be that clever. He's an opportunist, and his rise in the GOP was largely circumstantial--there was simply no one else.
Quote from: SciFiAuthor on July 27, 2016, 01:36:32 AMYeah, but that's how you become a successful politician. How did Obama do it? Same shit, different label. The best sociopathic bullshit artist always rises to the top in politics. Let's not overcook how politics works. It used to be hereditary. Then the ante was upped with democracy. That made sociopathy a qualification of office. Democracy requires bullshit artistry to manipulate people into electing you. That's all that's there. These people are not gods, they are bullshit artists. How can you watch a Hillary speech without saying to yourself "bullshit artist"? In light of that, explain to me why I should vote Hillary.

Quote from: Lt.Uhura on July 27, 2016, 02:05:31 AMPutin is batshit crazy too. He and Trump together would create a volatile mixture of crazy. BTW, has anyone noticed the similarities between these two? I like Daniel Craig as James Bond but it took me a long time to get used to him being the "good guy", he reminded me more of KGB.
