58% of Americans Don’t Think Russian “Hacking” Changed Election … 56% Believe U.S. Should Improve Relations with Russia

Despite the evidencefree drumbeat of propaganda and hysteria, a new CNN/ORC poll finds that Americans are remaining level-headed about the Russian hacking allegations:

Majorities say that … that the outcome of the election would have been the same regardless of the information released (58% say that). Further, 56% say that despite this situation, the US ought to continue its efforts to improve relations with Russia rather than take strong economic and diplomatic steps against Russia.

It’s almost enough to restore my faith in the American people.

    You are walking on thin ice citing a CNN poll, and part of the problem is that you assume it matters that Russia should influence the US election. First, European countries tried to influence the elections more than Russia. But more importantly, we (the US) not only influences other countries elections but overthrow freely (illegally) elected governments. Just as everyone hacks everybody, every country tries to influence other governments. And there is probably a common pool of hacked information available to the US, British, Israeli, and Russian intelligence. Some people just don’t want us to know how crooked they are.

      How can this blog have faith in the American populace when most of these brutes cannot even locate the Russian Federation on the map.

    Here is an interesting look at an essay on war written by Barack Obama when he was a student at Columbia University:


    It is so ironic that he is now the only POTUS to serve his full term in a state of war.

    Why aren’t the mainstream media — and the #Democrats —
    expressing outrage about #Crosscheck and defending YOUR right to vote?


    Crosscheck Is Not Just Crooked, It’s Criminal

    After reading my report on the Kobach/Koch/Trump operation, which has removed tens of thousands of minority voters from the rolls in the swing states that surprisingly shifted to Trump, former federal judge (and now [Florida] Congressman) Alcee Hastings told me Crosscheck is a criminal violation of federal law. Hastings has called for criminal indictments and written an official Congressional member letter to ask for investigation.


    The Republican Sabotage of the Vote Recounts in Michigan and Wisconsin
    By Greg Palast for Truthout

    Jill Stein didn’t buy it. Responding to both Michigan’s and Trump’s claim that voter rolls are loaded with fraudulent double voters, Stein said, “It’s the opposite of what he is saying: not people who are voting fraudulently and illegally, but actually legitimate voters who have had their right to vote taken away from them by Kris Kobach and by Donald Trump.”

    Jesus, how stupid Americans have become. Russian hacking changed the election? Really? Give me a fu(K!n break. Russia isn’t the problem. Mass Stupidity, Corruption and Racism is. The media utters nonsense and gullible idiots are all over it like it’s gospel. ISIS aka the Israeli Secret Intelligence Service is thriving off of American stupidity, and their despicable plans of fulfilling decades of failed attempts to frame Muslims have finally succeeded. They hoped to erase the USS Liberty incident from the history books and we’ve helped them, like the little bitch lap dogs the made us to be. Good Job America!

    Keep focusing your attention on the useless BS they want you to, like meaningless Russian hacking, so they can continue to pull the strings and destroy us. Bravo!

    And if I sound like a ranting lunatic to anyone (as I’m sure I do to those previously mentioned), than allow me to present a reality to consider. Summed up in a single photo.
