    Oh, then I guess it's not happening!

    Telling the Russians that you can negotiate more freely after the election in not remotely "colluding" with them. Do you guys have your logic and reason surgically removed?

    The DNC isn't a foreign nation, a foreign nation who has been an adversary of the US

    Better yet, just stay off Facebook and you won't have the problem

    That article proved exactly what about Russia changing votes?

    Edit to add from article:
    Caveat: Correlation does not always mean causation. If a Trump talking point encouraged a particularly viral Tweet, for example, it may have also encouraged a change in Trump's polling on its own.

    You have to read it. I'm not explaining the self-explanatory to you.

    Why the **** do you think they're doing it again? Because it "doesn't work"?

    They are doing it again because it's making the left implode. Pure propaganda that you all are sucking up, hook, line and sinker!

    As Obama rightly said, it is ridiculous to think a foreign nation could alter our election outcome.

    That makes no sense. Please try to use some logic and reason when you post.

    Oh, lookie. You: No source except trumpian talking points.

    Me: Always sources:

    https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2018/10/01/how-russia-helped-to-swing-the-election-for-trump

    "Annenberg Center, in Philadelphia, and asked her point-blank if she thought that Trump would be President without the aid of Russians, she didn’t equivocate. “No,” she said, her face unsmiling. Clearly cognizant of the gravity of her statement, she clarified, “If everything else is a constant? No, I do not.”

    Jamieson said that, as an academic, she hoped that the public would challenge her arguments. Yet she expressed confidence that unbiased readers would accept her conclusion that it is not just plausible that Russia changed the outcome of the 2016 election—it is “likely that it did.”

    Quoting former President Obama is nothing?

    Interesting on how you make things up eh?
    t's also worth noting that the U.S. intelligence community has not conclusively weighed in on whether Russia's interference in 2016 had a tangible impact on the results of the election.

    nice link

    I still use FB for the markeplace app, its great, no reason to stop, Craigslist is jacked with scammers
    I see no more nasty posts or memes because I got rid of all the psychos (on both sides)
    I see no ads because I have an adblocker

    The only meme's I see are on the humor and satire section of this site and the key word is "humor and satire"

    I laugh at them all the time.
    I have no idea if an american citizen posted them, or a russian, or a mexican, or an australian posted them, I don't care its a meme!

    ps, " the 80's called " was also a very bad quote from Obama during the 12' debates.

    It seems like you fellas don't read the posts in the thread.

    Try to do so before showing up and posting blustery nonsense.

    You posted a source that SPECULATED!! From your own dam article!

    Caveat: Correlation does not always mean causation. If a Trump talking point encouraged a particularly viral Tweet, for example, it may have also encouraged a change in Trump's polling on its own.

    The Soviets and now Russia has tried to influence elections for 70+ years. You all are the new McCarthy's of the 21st century.

    Editor's note: The headline and first paragraph of this story have been updated to clarify that the study suggests a correlation between troll posts and Trump poll numbers.

    Yes, the ones who manufactured the Russian collusion narrative to attempt removal of a sitting US President were "the left".

    Yes, yes. Russia "had an impact". It's just that no one could find it after 3 years.
