I've been deleting a lot of posts by Gumbercules because they only lead to nothing good, but I thought there was a very funny contradiction in two subsequent comments:

Quote
Leftists do not care about coherence. They don't care about anything but power. They resent the fact you even have the right to express your opinion. And you can feel it. They HATE you. And if we give them power they will murder you, as history proves they do.

Quote
The special prosecutor is a traitor and if there were any justice in this world he's be executed in public.

It would seem Gumbercules is a leftist.  ;D

Sorry, Gumbercules, but I just had to share this.

And it would seem that you, Neven, are not.
This is our planet. This is our time.
Let's not waste either.

Russia hacked the FBI to prevent the bureau from being able to track Russian spies in the US
https://www.businessinsider.com/russia-hacked-fbi-to-prevent-tracking-russian-spies-us-report-2019-9

- The move enabled the Russians to evade being surveilled and to communicate with human sources. It also gave them the opportunity to collect information about their pursuers. And it reportedly prompted concerns among officials that there was a Russian asset within the US intelligence community.

- Yahoo News reported that Russia's hack of the FBI's communication systems was a key reason why former President Barack Obama's administration kicked out 35 Russian diplomats and shuttered two Russian diplomatic facilities in December 2016.

- Russia and the US have ramped up their counterintelligence and cybersecurity operations against one another in recent years and tensions between the two countries continue to mount.

Insensible before the wave so soon released by callous fate. Affected most, they understand the least, and understanding, when it comes, invariably arrives too late

Did I say "information warfare" somewhere on this thread?
(Here is some engineering quality manager's delight: A Soviet system switchboard, with a ladder ready-to-hand (*), in a Ukrainian power station hacked by Russians. Much safer than American power stations (apropos Rachel Maddow being hysterical hahaaaaaaaaaaahahaha... :) ))
(Plus, some paradigmatic specimens of hackerz (autism spectrum, psychopathy, ?)...)
{ca. 35m}

Possibly the first instance when I turned down YouTube playback speed. And it was for Putin (1h16m ff. standing next to a grinning Macron) pondering cyberspace and the atom bomb.

This one is in German, but there's also a French version somewhere.


{Should be cross-posted in the "Examples of ... Journalism" thread here, which I promise to not touch.}

So, (e.g. video above) Ukraine is a nexus in the Russiagate complex - in several respects. You have to go back to Hitler and Stalin to get the full Ukraine picture (plus, study chernozem soil). But for this very moment, Rachel Maddow's latest summa is good enough:

Johnstone on Hilary attacking Tulsi:

"One doesn’t have to actually have any formal relationship with the Kremlin to be a Kremlin asset. One doesn’t have to know they’re a Kremlin asset to be a Kremlin asset. The Kremlin doesn’t even need to know one is a Kremlin asset for them to be a Kremlin asset. Nothing has to have happened except the accusation of being a Kremlin asset."

"does the Kremlin’s bidding without realizing it by sharing ideas and information which the Russian government agrees with. Which is just another way of saying that they hold positions which diverge from the microscopic Overton window of establishment-authorized opinion"

"it is now literally impossible for an American political figure to vocally oppose US warmongering without being labeled a Russian asset."
