Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, November 25, 2017

"We can't say that [Donald] Trump was recruited in 1987. But what we can say with absolute certainty is there was a very determined effort by the Soviets to bring him over, and that moreover, his personality was the kind of thing they were looking for. They were looking for narcissists. They were looking for people who were kind of -- dare I say it -- corruptible, interested in money, people who were not necessarily faithful in their marriages and also sort of opportunists who were not very strong analysts or principle people. And if you work your way down the list through these sort of -- the KGB's personality questionnaire, Donald Trump ticks every single box." -- Luke Harding, author of Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money, and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win

Trump is the Manchurian Candidate.

What garbage, but I am sure this tabloid type crap goes quite well here.

KGB adored people like Trump in the 1980s
Crassus adores people like Trump in the 2010s.

Any questions?

Crassus overstuffed on NothingBurgers for Thanksgiving.

Putin and the former KGB have been helping rwing nationalists all around the world with elections.

Especially here.

Had Turkey, ham, and prime rib so if that equates to nothingburgers than they were some good eats.

LOL...it clearly shows how little faith you have in the system, or is that faith in doubt just when your party loses?

"you love to cast dispersions upon others."

Trump supporters don't need my help with that, they do it to themselves.

Tell us more how you're pro-union, except for all the unions that aren't yours.

Crassus are you actually denying the Russians are making a concerted effort to influence global politics?

Or are you just gearing up to play the "I don't have to talk to you meanies any more" card?

#16 | Posted by snoofy at 2017-11-25 10:41 PM | Reply

Now we move to unions? As a matter of fact I am pro-union, have been dealing with and been in them most of my life. Now try casting another false dispersive narrative.

It clearly shows that Russia is helping rwing nationalists around the world... no matter what silly word salad you post.

Crassus:
Your actions speak louder than your words.
Surely you can understand such a simple concept.

#19 | Posted by snoofy at 2017-11-25 10:42 PM | Reply

Well I don't have to talk to you meanies, it hurts your feelings here.

Every major country makes efforts to influence global politics, and yes, even the USA does. Can you imagine that!!!????

Your actions speak louder than your words.

My actions? Some how you seem to dream up some action that shows me as not pro-union. It is kind fun watching you make up something about a poster and then run a debate over the false narrative, you have to be really bored.

You voted for Trump, and the GOP.

You had real problems imagining it in #14.
Congratulations on your speedy recovery.

Still have not answered the question, do you really have that little faith in our system? Or is it just when your party loses?

Again, every major country tries to influence elections, it has been going on since the dawn of all countries births.

#24 | Posted by Crassus at 2017-11-25 10:48 PM | Reply

"do you really have that little faith in our system"

Faith in our system... to do what?

#25 | Posted by snoofy at 2017-11-25 10:50 PM | Reply

Do you have faith that Russia "is helping rwing nationalists around the world?"
Because you should.

#26 | Posted by snoofy at 2017-11-25 10:51 PM | Reply

- have that little faith in our system?

Our system is overflowing in big money on one end of the rwing spectrum, the corporate and the .01 percenters and the small-minded white nationalists authoritarians on the other.

It's what makes Trump possible.

"Again, every major country tries to influence elections, it has been going on since the dawn of all countries births."

Therefore, we shouldn't care when it happens to us. Got it.

Another dispersion, now debate why we should care and why you think that's what I said.

#29 | Posted by Crassus at 2017-11-25 11:59 PM | Reply

We should all care about foreign meddling in our elections.
You, on the other hand, choose not to.

#30 | Posted by snoofy at 2017-11-26 01:47 AM | Reply

I could careless what Russia or any other country thinks or tries to meddle in our election, I vote not by what other countries think.

But, are you trying to say the Russian changed our vote count?

The United States Intelligence Community concluded, with high confidence, that the Russian government engaged in electoral interference during the 2016 U.S. presidential election.[1][2] A January 2017 assessment by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) stated that Russian leadership preferred presidential candidate Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton, and that Russian president Vladimir Putin personally ordered an "influence campaign" to harm Clinton's electoral chances and "undermine public faith in the US democratic process."

Nice try but not true no matter how much you wish it. The election was a fair good election to say other wise is just rotten apples for partisan sake.

If the outcome of the 2016 election was fair and just then it was by accident.

The KGB saw the potential of cultivating a useful idiot in Trump decades ago.

If the Russians are really good at anything, it's espionage -- just ask the Germans, the Japanese, the Brits, and our own CIA and FBI -- they would all agree.

Need any further proof of the success of Russia's cyber attack?

This is Exhibit 1.

(And I bet that if "Crooked Hillary" had won this guy would be on the front lines claiming the election was " rigged")

Yeah a fair good election where one party conspired with our enemies to get elected, and the person with the most votes didn't win.

Just like the founders dreamed.
