I have heard these have been passed on via sharing hundreds of millions of times. They are very similar to the stuff malibu barfie posts that are very divisive.

They are designed to turn out/motivate right wing using the so called white victim mantra. And suppress Hillary voters including blacks and minorities. And suppress bernie voters from voting for Hillary later.

https://www.theverge.com/2017/11/1/16593346/house-russia-facebook-ads

Here are the Russia-linked Facebook ads released by Congress

https://techcrunch.com/2018/05/10/house-democrats-facebook-russia/House Democrats release more than 3,500 Russian Facebook ads

Quote:
Democrats from the House Intelligence Committee have released thousands of ads that were run on Facebook by the Russia-based Internet Research Agency.

The Democrats said they’ve released a total of 3,519 ads today from 2015, 2016 and 2017. This doesn’t include 80,000 pieces of organic content shared on Facebook by the IRA, which the Democrats plan to release later.

What remains unclear is the impact that these ads actually had on public opinion, but the Democrats note that they were seen by more than 11.4 million Americans.

You can find all the ads here, though it’ll take some time just to download them. As has been noted about earlier (smaller) releases of IRA ads, they aren’t all nakedly pro-Trump, but instead express a dizzying array of opinions and arguments, targeted at a wide range of users.

“Russia sought to weaponize social media to drive a wedge between Americans, and in an attempt to sway the 2016 election,” tweeted Adam Schiff, who is the Democrats’ ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee. “They created fake accounts, pages and communities to push divisive online content and videos, and to mobilize real Americans,”

were you saying kenny Boy Star was destroying the usa with his unlimited budget and time 6 years to go after Clinton for anything and everything? none of which had to do with national security? Same with the 4 years on Benghazi? Or Jimmy Carters Peanut farm?

Did you hear about the largest security blunder in the history of the USA. Chief of Staff Kelly a general who had been in charge of national security, well he brought in a cell phone that was hacked into top secret meetings conversations for 6 months such that every word he said and even videos of things were stollen by hackers.

Now where is the investigation on that one? Again this will probably cost taxpayers in the high billions for counter intelligence and programs compromised.

So now why would podestas password really matter as he had no classified material and said nothing bad in that entire time. Certainly nothing criminal.... as the russians released the bet they had and it was nothing.... in fact such a nothing vs just what comes from trumps so called best of the best lawyers. remember he hires the best...

so far trump dropped the fines on russia from the magniski act a penalty of 100s of millions his first month in office.

Trump will not say a bad word to Putin, in fact after Putin assassinated a person in Britten the next week or so Trump congratulates him on stealing another election vs protesting like all of our allies.

Pompeo says the US has not done enough to protect 2018 elections

Quote:
WASHINGTON (CNN) - Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday that the US has a "great deal more work to do" to safeguard the integrity of American elections ahead of the upcoming 2018 midterms. "I have to say there is more work to do," Pompeo told lawmakers on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. "We have not been able to achieve deterrence, effective deterrence of some of these efforts of the Russians." Asked if the administration has forestalled the next attack on US democracy, Pompeo said: "No responsible government official would ever state that they have done enough to forestall any attack on the United States of America." "We work diligently on it each day we reduce threats, we tak

Russians still trying to interfere in US elections every 'way they can': Republican senator

Quote:
A Republican member of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Americans need “to be very aware that the Russians are trying to interfere in our election” any way they can “regardless of who the candidate is.”

Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford told ABC News "This Week" Co-Anchor Martha Raddatz that Russia's aim is to disrupt American elections, including in the upcoming 2018 midterms.

The senator said the U.S. has to “be very aware that the Russians are trying to be able to interfere in our elections every other way they can to be able to harvest information and then to be able to use that against our democracy.”

Raddatz asked Lankford about a report in The Daily Beast that the Russian intelligence agency targeted the office of Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri as she began her 2018 re-election campaign. There is no evidence that the hacking attempt was successful.

here they go again.... the russians got the green light again from trump... well first green light was trump saying to the world , Russia if you are listening illegally go after Hillarys emails... and weaponize and release them when I need them. and I will remove 200 million in obama era penalties your cronies face. Which he did about the first week he got sessions in.

then he added no attacks on their ability to engage in more election propaganda attacks on america and for which she use to stand. In fact there is presently no-one in charge of cybersecurity in the government is how badly trump wants the russians attacking the usa. Rember trump claims to know the best people for everything... but can not find one for anything... And ash kissed Putins rear end at the meeting and said Putin was the one telling the trusth and russia did not do bad things just ask Putin. and again green light to attack our election to make sure he is not made to show up to congressional oversight in all parts of the government.


hence the Putin and trump are attacking america again

The company said those behind the campaign had been "more careful to cover their tracks, adding: "We've found evidence of some connections between these accounts and IRA accounts we disabled last year (...) but there are differences too."

Ex-FBI agent: Trump got elected, thanks to Russia




Quote:
SAN FRANCISCO — President Trump can thank Vladimir Putin for his victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, a former special agent at the Federal Bureau of Investigation told the Yahoo News podcast “Bots & Ballots.”

Asked point-blank if Russian hacking and disinformation helped elect Trump to the presidency, Clint Watts, who tracked the online activities of extremist groups like al-Qaida and the Islamic State group for the FBI in the run-up to the 2016 election, was resolute.

“Yes. I think just alone the hacking, particularly of the DNC and the time to release by WikiLeaks and DCLeaks and others of hacked materials offset the media narrative,” Watts, who has been an outspoken critic of the current president, told “Bots & Ballots” host Grant Burningham. “If you go back to the infamous ‘Access Hollywood’ tape of Donald Trump, it was immediately followed by the release, within an hour I believe, of hacked emails to try and distract from that narrative, and to essentially inundate that media space with other coverage.”


Watts said the FBI took note of Russia’s disinformation campaign on social media even earlier, in 2014.

“That’s when you saw the message start to pop up that the Assad regime needs to stay in power, and the signatures didn’t look quite right,” Watts said, adding, “So when we stayed on that storm of social media accounts, they always supported a narrative that was always pro-Russian. It didn’t matter if they were talking about Syria, Ukraine or a host of different policy issues, it was always pro-Russian and they were often times in sequence sharing content from Russian state-sponsored outlets.”


Over the course of the next year, as the U.S. presidential campaign took shape, the pro-Russian accounts began to shift their messaging.

“They began talking about different issues moving into 2015, and they would talk about a lot of social issues, particularly in the United States — Black Lives Matters protests, law enforcement standoffs — and one of the issues they talked about was Jade Helm 2015,” Watts said of the Alex Jones-promoted conspiracy theory that an annual U.S. military training exercise was really a front for the establishment of martial law.

“That was remarkable. They were essentially amplifying essentially indigenous American conspiracies in different ways, that the U.S. might declare martial law and take peoples’ weapons,” he said. “But what they were really doing was testing a new way to do warfare, information warfare, which was from their Soviet system called ‘active measures,’ which is winning through the force of politics rather than the politics of force by helping U.S. politicians who favor Russia get elected and rise to policy positions.”

For many agents in the FBI, Watts said it became clear that the biggest goal for “active measures” was advancing Trump’s presidential bid, in part by utilizing vulnerable social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.

“By the time 2016 came around, it was very clear that they had four campaign messages that they wanted to push. The first one was very anti-Hillary Clinton, and that was from the beginning. The second one was very pro-Trump,” Watts said. “The third one was when the hacking kicked in, which was that Bernie Sanders got a raw deal from the DNC, and you can see that in these hacked emails. That’s really when we started to see that hacking was starting to power influence. And the last one, which was very minor, was that you still need to show up for Jill Stein. So, the equation was quite clear, it was how do we elevate Trump to the top spot and sort of suppress Clinton turnout and people wanting to support her.”
