Microsoft PR campaign pretending to be a Russian cyber attack. What a concept! :roll2:

Report: Clinton's private email hacked by China
Look back at the first few posts made to this thread in 2016. Everyone already knew that it wasn't Russia way back then!

Steyn: Google has more control over lives than Russia
The amount of influence that Russia has over public opinion in the USA is negligible. In fact, if we were to make a list of the entities which exert the most influence on American public opinion it's doubtful that Russia would rank in the top forty. Google, on the other hand, would be number one. They certainly had a lot to do with hyping the Russian Hackers narrative, didn't they? Turns out that little piece of fake news was a distraction from what's really going on!

Why Trump dumping Sessions is a major Russia move
Although CNN tries to spin this as a bad thing, it seems like it's all good to me. The Russia investigation has been a witch hunt and a waste of time and money from the beginning. So, anything that brings it to an end is a good thing.

If click-bait headlines were an art, NYT’s op-ed would be a masterpiece
The corporate media has a tendency to attribute it's own methods and motives to others. Obvious projection and the ironic thing is that they don't realize how obvious.
