Murdoch turn's on US Traitor Trump - our Russian Obligate President

Well folks looks like game over for trump.

Nah, states are still stretching the counting game long as they can. But, Murdoch’s número uno enabler, even ahead of the smart people inside Red Square, the Master of the Universe Murdoch. Who has apparently decided he’s milked all he can get out of the Orange Monstrosity and distancing time has arrived.

The big man on campus will have to get used to being a washed up has been, hounded by the law.

And looking over his shoulder for that one crazy who’s feeling so totally betrayed by the fuhrer that his life takes on a new meaning - personal retribution upon the source of his pain. Trumpet and kids, remember hell hath no fury like a spurned lover.

 

Rupert Murdoch-owned US outlets turn on Trump, urging him to act with 'grace' Fox News, Wall Street Journal and New York Post all show stark change of tone as their former champion faces ‘presidential endgame’

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/nov/07/rupert-murdoch-owned-us-outlets-turn-on-trump-urging-him-to-concede-with-grace

Multiple Rupert Murdoch-owned conservative media outlets in the United States have shifted their messaging in a seeming effort to warn readers and viewers that Donald Trump may well have lost the presidential election.

The new messaging appears to be closely coordinated, and it includes an appeal to Trump to preserve his “legacy” by showing grace in defeat. The message is being carried on Fox News and in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post – all outlets avidly consumed by Trump himself, especially Fox.

Multiple Rupert Murdoch-owned conservative media outlets in the United States have shifted their messaging in a seeming effort to warn readers and viewers that Donald Trump may well have lost the presidential election.

The new messaging appears to be closely coordinated, and it includes an appeal to Mr Trump to preserve his “legacy” by showing grace in defeat. The message is being carried on Fox News and in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post – all outlets avidly consumed by Mr Trump himself, especially Fox.

One Fox News host, Laura Ingraham, an intimate of the president ever since she spoke at the 2016 Republican national convention, made an astounding statement that seemed directed at Mr Trump personally, advising him to accept defeat “if and when that does happen” with “grace and composure” and appealing to his sense of his own legacy.

On Tuesday night, Fox News became the first major news outlet to declare that Biden would win Arizona. An angry Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, dialed Murdoch to demand he reverse the network’s call. Pro-Trump supporters in Maricopa County, Ariz. — some of them armed — led chants of “Fox sucks.” And for days, the network’s top opinion hosts gave ballast to the president’s unfounded and corrosive claims of voter fraud by Democrats, seeking to discredit the entire electoral process.

Fox News’s journalists are, by and large, attempting to navigate a gentle landing for their audiences so that, should Biden defeat Trump, they will recognize the result. But the network’s stars are larding their shows with Trump advocates who make baseless but incendiary accusations to ensure that viewers never accept Biden as legitimate.

Murdoch threw his weight and his media outlets behind the president early on, although his Wall Street Journal’s news pages have also offered muscular investigative reporting on Trump. That alliance has served Murdoch well, giving him full and frequent access to Trump, as well as a presidential seal of approval on his sale of entertainment properties to Disney despite antitrust concerns. …

It’s shame the traitor’s legacy won’t be switched off so easily.

 

Election 2020: Trump and the rise of white supremacist extremism https://www.theguardian.com/news/audio/2020/oct/30/us-election-2020-donald-trump-and-the-rise-of-white-supremacist-extremism-podcast

Presented by Anushka Asthana with Demetria Hester and Lois Beckett;

White supremacist extremism is the most lethal terrorism threat to the United States. It’s a hateful ideology that the Guardian’s Lois Beckett says has infected many parts of American society.

In May 2017, Demetria Hester was on her way home from work on a train in Portland, Oregon when Jeremy Christian, an avowed white supremacist, boarded and began shouting racist abuse. She says she told him to shut up. When they had got off the train, he threw a bottle that struck her in the face. The next day he killed two men and grievously injured a third. Demetria describes to Anushka Asthana how she felt the police responded to the incident that night and how she watched her attacker walk away without being questioned.

Earlier this year, a court in Portland found Jeremy Christian guilty of two counts of first-degree murder and one count of first-degree attempted murder and sentenced to life without parole. But as the Guardian’s Lois Beckett tells Anushka, this is the extreme end of an ideology that has permeated all parts of US society, and that President Trump has repeatedly refused to condenm.

As Americans go to the polls next week they must assess the record of a president who has professed to be the “least racist person”. His own Department of Homeland Security describes white supremacists as posing the most persistent and lethal terror threat in the country.

I wouldn’t know. I wouldn’t be surprised. I imagine we’ll be hearing about it, if there’s evidence of it happening.

What do you say to those that say the country that has biggest influence on trump and has most benefitted has been Israel.

Cc you there? Can you respond please?

What do you want me to say. Oh yeah another one.

Trump’s Conflicts of Interest in Israel By Carolyn Kenney and John Norris June 14, 2017,

Why leave out Saudi Arabia?

President Trump has a massive conflict of interest on Saudi Arabia

www - washingtonpost - com/outlook/2018/10/18/president-trump-has-massive-conflict-interest-saudi-arabia/

The top 11 favors the Trump administration has done for Saudi Arabia

www - nbcnews - com/politics/national-security/top-11-favors-trump-administration-has-done-saudi-arabia-n1026926

What you say your honest response is to

-moving the embassy to jerusalem

-making jerusalem the capital of israel

  • handing the Golan Heights to Israel

  • tore up the Iran deal as directed by Israel

-signed deal for supply of $3.8 billion of military arm to Israel for next 10 years.

-getting arab states to side with Israel

 

???

I would suggest trump would be the greatest president Israel has ever had and has clearly out done favours for Israel to anything you are incsinuating for Russia

 

 

I don’t know or care enough about any of that to have any actual opinion. I think they all have boiled their brains under the sun. For me all the Middle East represents utter hopelessness, and after Cheney’s Shock’nAwe, absolute viciousness feeding viciousness and more hopelessness. Each of us has only so much bandwidth. I simply thank my stars that I wasn’t born anywhere near the place.

“I don’t know or care enough about any of that to have any actual opinion”

 

Thats quite a devastating statement for someone who says they care about the truth

It’s not a question of truth.

It’s a matter of bandwidth and retaining one’s mental health.

There’s only so much we can each be present to.

 

Incidentally, what do you expect? How well do you live up to your own expectations of others?

 

  1. Sure its about truth. Cherry picking bits and peices to fit your world view does not maketh productive conversation

I believe you are thinking two very different things. I’m already stretched too thin.

You know it takes time to learn about stuff, we have finite time and a finite brain. Capiche?

Why aren’t you obsessing about the way South Africa Gold Miners are treated or the way Australian Aboriginals continue getting screwed over by whites. Oh yea, it’s also happening in one form or another all over the world, including that wonderful Canada, even the USA, go figure. I care, it hurts, but what can I do?

Or why don’t I hop in my car and drive down to a city with the worst COVID outbreaks, to volunteer at a hospital? Well because I have my life to live and my biological instinct keep me from willfully destroying myself. I’ve got my time and my place and will live out my days as they come. After all, ALL of us are at heart self-serving creatures. Some of us try to do better and care for others, believing we are all equal. Some manage to make a difference, others don’t. Key sara sara.

Why don’t you seem concerned about Manmade Global Warming - that’s the one that will catch up and upend all of us and everything on this planet?

Of course, why be concerned about Manmade Global Warming, we’ve passed too many tipping points, the future is preordained, even if we still have a little bit of influence on how must worse and faster it will come at us, but we’ve sort of passed too many real world tipping points, so the outcome will still be the same, be it 50 years, or 100 years.

 

But I think you’re here trying to pick a fight.

Why derail threads?

Why not start your own thread and try to raise your concerns and help educate people?

What’s your game Anton?


Why should I worry about the Middle East? What could I do? I’m 65, been watching that living hell develop over there, a hundred years of greed and disregard for the other - some horrors and hopelessness is simply too much to process and I’m blessed not to have any connects, that would make it my affair. Thanks be.

Why hold that against me?

 

Did Russia interfer in this election cc?
The news I heard was that they were very muted this time. They never stopped their online disinformation campaign, but they didn't hack election computers this time. Putin is playing along with Trump's rhetoric right now though, refusing to congratulate Biden until Trump loses ever last tantrum...um, legal fight.

What disinformation?

Cc- the framing of this thread is a problem

Cherry picking bits and peices to fit your world view does not maketh productive conversation – Anton

You continue to push the limits of the rules. Here you are commenting, not on the topic itself, but on CC’s desire to research and be informed on the details. That is well within the definition of trolling.

@anton "What disinformation?"
How's this for starters:
Study Exposes Russia Disinformation Campaign That Operated In The Shadows For 6 Years NPR - June 16, 2020

npr - org/2020/06/16/878169027/study-exposes-russia-disinformation-campaign-that-operated-in-the-shadows-for-6-

For the past six years, an obscure disinformation campaign by Russian operatives has flooded the Internet with false stories in seven languages and across 300 social media platforms virtually undetected, according to new report published on Tuesday by social media researchers.

The operation, named “Secondary Infektion” by researchers, has sought to spread pro-Russian propaganda around the globe by sharing fake tweets from U.S. elected officials and conspiracy theories about the coronavirus. And it attempted to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. Researchers say it will likely try to spread falsehoods tied to the November election, too.

Ben Nimmo, director of investigations at Graphika, the research firm that conducted the study, said in an interview that the specific culprit within Russia remains elusive. …


 

What are Russia’s goals with disinformation on social media?

By Professor Steven Wilson Oct. 22, 2020

https://www.brandeis.edu/now/2020/october/elections-russia-disinformation-social-media.html

In the run-up to the presidential election, Brandeis NOW asked faculty to provide analysis and insight into some of the most pressing issues facing the country. This is part of the series.

Over the last decade, the growth of social media has gone hand in hand with the increasing use of those platforms for the coordinated dissemination of disinformation.

Russian pseudo-state operations such as the Internet Research Agency, based in St. Petersburg and financed by allies of Putin, are of particular concern. They have been linked to dozens of international campaigns using “troll farms” of employees posting with fake accounts in addition to networks of automated bots to push disinformation on social media.

What U.S.-Russia Talks on Election Meddling Say About the Kremlin’s Shifting Strategy

BY SIMON SHUSTER
OCTOBER 7, 2020 1:41 PM EDT

time - com/5897310/russia-us-election-interference/

On Oct. 2, just a few hours after President Trump announced on Twitter that he was infected with COVID-19, his national security adviser sat down in Geneva with a group of Russian officials. At the top of their stated agenda was the Kremlin’s effort to influence the U.S. elections, an issue that Russia had shown a sudden eagerness to discuss with the Trump Administration barely a month before the vote.

The talks in Geneva – between National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien and his Russian counterpart, Nikolai Patrushev – were the latest sign of how Russia has shifted tactics since 2016. The risks of launching another full-scale campaign of cyber interference have come to outweigh the foreseeable rewards, sources in Moscow’s security and foreign policy establishment tell TIME. Given how badly President Trump is doing in the polls, the Kremlin appears to be hedging its bets, pursuing a less aggressive influence campaign in these elections while also offering the Americans a half-hearted truce.

“From our side, it’s a pre-emptive step,” says a former senior intelligence officer in Moscow who maintains close ties with the security establishment. If Joe Biden defeats Trump at the polls, says the former officer, “We need a way to start the process of normalizing relations.” He adds: “We don’t want to be accused of interfering again. We’ve had enough of that.”

Russia’s actions in recent weeks have reflected those concerns. By this point in the 2016 election cycle, Russian operatives had launched an attack on two fronts: spreading disinformation through social media and, at the same time, using cyberattacks to hack U.S. election infrastructure and the Democratic Party. “We have not seen that second part yet this year, or this cycle,” Christopher Wray, the FBI director, told the House Homeland Security Committee on Sept. 17.
