That Election Tampering Thing


There has been story after story, news report after news report about how Russia had tampered with the 2016 election.  There is even been a few stories that accuse China of something similar.

For about 2 years we Americans could not escape the news of tampering….the finger pointing…the whispers and the ink that has been wasted on the whole tampering thing.

I have written that Russia is not alone in this tampering thing…..the US has been doing so for decades upon decades…..we have made sure that the “right kind” of candidate wins any given election.

That is right…the US has pissed away billions trying to change elections….

The U.S. military state overthrows democratically-elected governments that it deems to be a threat to corporate interests.

“There is plenty of evidence that the United States is the most depraved and dangerous “meddler” in the affairs of other nations that history has ever known.”

Dan Kovalik is a labor and human rights lawyer, but most of all he is an anti-imperialist and an author of three books. Kovalik’s first two books tackled the specific US war drives against Russia and Iran. His third installment, The Plot to Control the World: How the US Spent Billions to Change the Outcome of Elections Around the World, addresses the broad scope of US election meddling abroad. The book provides much needed political and ideological life support to an anti-war movement in the U.S that has been rendered nearly invisible to the naked eye.

Just remember about pointing…..there is one finger pointing away and 4 pointing back at you.

But if you are not sure about others tampering around the world then I have a couple of posts for you…..enjoy!

  1. There is no doubt that the world is filled with espionage and counter-espionage activities and that every nation with any kind of resources is more than likely involved to one degree or another.

  2. I saw on a conservative right wing blog yesterday information about Obama and the Tussuans in the 2012 elections. Liberal blogs do not mention that. Then there is Hillary’s meddling in the Russia election. She really made herself an enemy of Putin.

    And the meddling which was mainly the release of the emails would not have had any adverse effect if the emails had not been so bad. We generally call that exposure rather than condemn it. The Russians exposed what the democrats were up to. That should be seen as a good thing. Airing someine’s wrongdoing is not a bad thing.

    1. You know that the Russian bots made up a lot of this stuff…..but the Right wing media ate it up because it was crap about Dems…..this partisan BS will destroy this country as it is doing today. chuq

      1. That is true. I probably saw some of it sent to me by my college fraternity brothers from South Carolina. Some of them are pretty radical. South Carolina is a strange place with a strange history. They got us Inyo the civil war are are still full of crazy.
