Guy has a hard time adding things up. Here are the points--just in case Guy missed them:

1. What was the scope of the Russian effort?

The Mueller indictment permanently demolishes the idea that the scale of the Russian campaign was not significant enough to have any impact on the American public. We are no longer talking about approximately $100,000 (paid in rubles, no less) of advertising grudgingly disclosed by Facebook, but tens of millions of dollars spent over several years to build a broad, sophisticated system that can influence American opinion.

2. What kind of content did it rely on?

As the indictment lays out in thorough detail, the content pumped out by the Russians was not paid or promoted ads; it was so-called native content—including video, visual, memetic, and text elements designed to push narrative themes, conspiracies, and character attacks. All of it was designed to look like it was coming from authentic American voices and interest groups.

3. Who or what was the operation targeting, and what did it aim to achieve?

The indictment mentions that the Russian accounts were meant to embed with and emulate “radical” groups. The content was not designed to persuade people to change their views, but to harden those views. Confirmation bias is powerful and commonly employed in these kinds of psychological operations (a related Soviet concept is “reflexive control”—applying pressure in ways to elicit a specific, known response). The intention of these campaigns was to activate or suppress—target groups. Not to change their views, but to change their behavior.

4. What impact did it have?

We’re only at the beginning of having an answer to this question because we’ve only just begun to ask some of the right questions. But Mueller’s indictment shows that Russian accounts and agents accomplished more than just stoking divisions and tensions with sloppy propaganda memes.

So anyone trying to tell you there was little impact on political views from the tools the Russians used doesn't know. Because none of us knows.

Collusion is still very much up in the air. Targeted Russian influence isn't.

Rather than upgrade our voting machines, or going to paper ballots, the mechanics of vote recording and counting remain vulnerable.

Do we roll over saying, well mercy me. Ain't nothing that can be done. Or, do we keep repeating ain't nothing to this Russia stuff ... Ds are sore losers ... no need to do anything anyway......

No mystery what we'll do. We'll do what we've done, what I described above.

This is called hedging your bet or trying to save face.


In other words, the ridiculous accusations that we have been pushing for the better part of a year are crumbling before us, but still russians exist and use the internet so


See, i told you.... russians.

The accusations are not crumbling before non-Trumpian human beings ..... because .... Mueller has released very little information, and his team seems quite a bit more loyal than Trumpeteers to Trump.

Yah. CIS President Putin is ex-KGB, foreign intelligence officer for 16 years - he was a lifer. He made Lt. Col., precisely in the section that watched foreigners in the late unlamented USSR, looking for targets for honeypots, subversion, agents in place. That department specialized in blackmail, compromising photos, the odd wetwork.

Sabcat looking more ridiculous by the minute. Even Don the Con’s National Security Advisor acknowledges it. But fools like Sabcat listen to his serial lying Con Man in Chief.

McMaster: Evidence is 'incontrovertible' that Russia interfered in 2016 election

Brandon Carter02/17/18 08:16 AM EST

White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster said a new round of indictments in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation show “incontrovertible” evidence that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election.

Speaking at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday, McMaster said “with the FBI indictment, the evidence is now incontrovertible” that Russia interfered in the election, according to The Associated Press.
