I thought he had the popular support of his people? So yeah: its working for him. What else is relevant?

Russian polling agencies claim he's very popular, if you feel comfortable relying on their results.

What an impressive list of sources you've produced Gord, each of them offering an irrefutable proof of Russian intervention in our fabulous democracies. Or do they?

Just look at the npr.org article written by certain Vera Zakem. Who is she? Well,
Vera Zakem is a research scientist who leads initiatives on European stability, media and information influence at CNA, a nonprofit research and analysis organization in Arlington, Va.

In other words, I would bet a silver dollar that CNA is one of those CIA (controlled) sponsored think tanks that does to Russia what Russia is accused of doing to us. And Vera Zakem is as much a scientist as Hillary Clinton.

She spins the tale of the Russian army of trolls and the Russian media tentacles of disinformation slithering into our democratic paradise in order to do what? Well, that's obvious; tell us who to vote for. And we obey because Vera and the NATO propaganda rag and The Globe and Mail, the Toronto propaganda rag all think that we are really stupid.

According to this brilliant neocon theory of human behavior nobody in the West knows who to vote for before the elections. We all get our clues from TV and the MSM and now to the horror of straight thinking folks like Vera we get them from RT and the Russian trolls.
Vera says;
, Russia's disinformation campaigns help highlight one of the biggest and most dangerous challenges in Western society: an inability to think critically about information.


You see, we in the West all suffer from the inability "to think critically about information". In other words, we are the simple minded idiots who believe anything we see or hear from the Russian media.

The "scientist" that she is does not even mention the possibility that if that is the case we also believe anything we read, see and hear on the main street media as well. And not only that but that we also fervently believe that the Wonder Woman and the Guardians of the Galaxy are real.

The Intercept, I would bet, yet another CIA "subsidized" publications comes with a real clincher and a "proof" of Russian disinformation campaign;
The top-secret National Security Agency document, which was provided anonymously to The Intercept and independently authenticated, analyzes intelligence very recently acquired by the agency about a months-long Russian intelligence cyber effort against elements of the U.S. election and voting infrastructure. The report, dated May 5, 2017, is the most detailed U.S. government account of Russian interference in the election that has yet come to light.


Yeap, the Intercept got hold of the "top secret" document from the NSA, anonymous, and "independently authenticated".
But the evidence?...What evidence, the idiots don't need any evidence. We said "anonymous" and "independently authenticated" Trust us.

JO 753 wrote:Az for Hillary, I agree with Comey. If there wuz enuf there, dont you think the GoPs woud hav sekseeded in prosecuting her?

When prosecution is up to the DoJ, and Loretta Lynch is the AG? LOL. Not to mention, the DoJ has prosecuted numerous others for infractions that were far less serious. Of course, none of them had Clinton clout and a good friend in the position of AG. And Trump did a 180º on the idea, as he did on every other campaign promise.

It may seem like Democrats and Republicans oppose each other, but they really don't differ much in ideology. The political compass has pointed this out repeatedly. For example, in the 2012 presidential election, you can see that Obama and Romney are rubbing shoulders, ideologically-speaking...

Here you can read the analysis of the graph.

Here's the 2016, which looks like more of a difference...
Image
...until you include the primary candidates and see just how far apart Clinton and Sanders are. He's actually on the left.
Image
Here is the analysis.

However, the real story is told when you superimpose the candidates' positions onto a graph that's labeled with the appropriate political ideologies...
Image
Note that the ideologies on this graph are placed per their more classical definitions, not as other groups have appropriated their labels over time.

I'v never found the political labelz to be very useful. The strict meaningz are understood by so few peepl that hardly anybody who callz themselvez this or that ideolojy coud pass a ritten test for it.

The ones used today aren't meaningful. That's why I compiled the last graph in my post, which uses the classical definitions. Note that it doesn't use "Republican" at all and only uses "Democrat" in the context of "Social Democrat." Each of the ideologies on my graph has a distinct philosophy independent of Party.

Just watched the interview with Stefanopolus.

He still duznt get it, bekuz he cant fase the horrible truth that he gave Trump the win.

Az I stated in the OP, hiz failure wuz bad lojik: He prioritized a detail over the main subject.

'If I follow standard proseedure and do nothing, I may hav sum splaining to do to clean sum mud off the FBI'z reputation'

vs.

'If I break standard proseedure by anounsing a politically sensitiv investigation dayz befor the election, I am risking a rediculously unqualified con man who may be under the thum uv the forin adversary thats been attacking the election prosess bekuming the next Prezident.'

'hmmm. Let me think --- Hillary iz way up in the pollz, so ye, totally worth the risk!'

'And you know wut? I'm going to break SOP anyway, but AGENST HILLARY!'

Add a failure uv imajination.

He, and prezumably nobody he wuz confering with, bothered to consider the possibilityz.

Suppoze Putin had a bigger game going on, beyond wut we know about even now.

Wut if the plan wuz to disable the White House soon after inauguration with a full fors kompromat thret wile launching a massiv syber attak on the power grid, the internet, the banking system, etc?

Az far az I can tell thats still an option. The likelyhood will only go up with the Cohen situation diluting the leveraj. Putin may uze it befor its worthless.

Then therez the standard proseedure itself.

Democrasy iz completely dependent on a well informed electorate. Well informed and not stoopid.

The GoP haz ruined both parts uv that with their 30 yir propaganda program and gathering the dummyz uv the nation into a cohesive voting block.

So the rule to not divulj politicly sensativ info within 60 dayz uv an election works for any bad guy trying to illegally skew it in their favor.

The day after the vote the FBI kumz out with 'hey, gess wut - the guy you just elected iz actually Satan! Weird, huh? We've been looking into it for a few months, but werent sure till this morning, so it woudnt hav been fair to say anything.'

In fairness to Comey, Obama gets at least az much blame on this count and the failure uv imajination.

Comey is indeed.
Or maybe not: the book deal (and impeccable timing) tells me that he realizes that it'S time to cash-out: no one is going to give him another job in government until maybe 2024.
