“If We Lose”!

It appears that the same rhetoric will apply for the election of 2020……Russia did it!  Or is it….China did it?

The VP candidate , Harris, has made her thoughts known…..

Kamala Harris says foreign interference, doubt cast about the election by President Trump, and voter suppression could potentially cost her and Joe Biden the White House in November. “I am a realist about it. Joe is a realist about it,” the California senator said on CNN’s State of the Union that aired Sunday, the AP reports. The 2020 election will be held under challenging circumstances. It will be the first US election in over a century to be conducted during a pandemic, which is expected to lead to a massive surge in mail voting. Trump has railed against mail balloting, which he says without proof will lead to voter fraud. And for the first time in decades, both parties will be able to closely scrutinize who casts ballots due to a recent court ruling that wiped out tighter restrictions on poll monitoring.

Meanwhile, US intelligence agencies have concluded Russia is once again attempting to interfere in the election by amplifying discord in the country. That all adds up to a volatile environment that Harris says could alter the outcome. “We have classic voter suppression, we have what happened in 2016, which is foreign interference. We have a president who is trying to convince the American people not to believe in the integrity of our election system and compromise their belief that their vote might actually count,” Harris said. “These things are all at play.” The Hill notes that Trump has consistently denied the allegation that Russian activities helped him win the 2016 election, dismissing it as a “hoax.”

Where did Harris get her info?

Microsoft?

The same Russian military intelligence outfit that hacked the Democrats in 2016 has attempted similar intrusions into the computer systems of more than 200 organizations, including political parties and consultants, Microsoft said Thursday. Those efforts appear to be part of a broader increase in targeting US political campaigns and related groups, the company said. “What we’ve seen is consistent with previous attack patterns that not only target candidates and campaign staffers but also those who they consult on key issues,” Tom Burt, a Microsoft vice president, said in a blog post. Most of the infiltration attempts by Russian, Chinese, and Iranian agents were halted by Microsoft security software and the targets notified, he said. The company would not comment on who may have been successfully hacked or the impact, the AP reports.

Microsoft did not assess which foreign adversary poses the greatest threat to the integrity of the November presidential election. The consensus among experts is that the answer is Russia. “This is the actor from 2016, potentially conducting business as usual,” said John Hultquist of cybersecurity firm FireEye. “We believe that Russian military intelligence continues to pose the greatest threat to the democratic process.” The Microsoft post shows that Russian military intelligence continues to pursue election-related targets undeterred by sanctions, US indictments, and other countermeasures, Hultquist said. The same GRU military intelligence unit, known as Fancy Bear, that Microsoft said is behind the current activity broke into voter registration databases in at least three states in 2016.

How true is this report?

Or is it just Microsoft doing some PR work?

But Sounds to me like the Dems are already setting the stage for the excuse of their loss to Trump.

If it was not Russia….then maybe China…..if mot China then what could have caused the loss?

This month, U.S. intelligence reported that Russia wants Donald Trump to win reelection, while China and Iran seek to help Joe Biden. Both sides of the political aisle have cited the report, claiming that one adversary or another would be happy if the other party takes power in January.

It shouldn’t surprise us that foreign countries have preferences about American electoral outcomes. Why wouldn’t they, given U.S. influence in the world? According to political scientist Lindsey O’Rourke, during the Cold War, the United States engaged in 64 attempts at covert regime change. More recently, we have overthrown and ultimately helped kill leaders in Iraq and Libya, while aiming to replace governments in Syria and Venezuela. Hillary Clinton believes that Vladimir Putin’s grudge against her goes back to comments she made about the 2011 parliamentary elections in Russia, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently urged the Chinese people to overthrow their government.

I am weary of all the excuses…..just once I want someone, anyone, to grow a set and tell the truth….if we lost it is because we had a crappy candidate or shitty policies….something like that.

But if they lose what will the story be in reality?

I love excuses!

If Biden losses it will be my fault since I do not support him or his mate for any reason….they are the “old guard” that needs replacing as soon as possible.

  1. It doesn’t send out a very good signal when the opposition candidates are already preparing their ‘why we lost’ speech. Such defeatist attitude will get you four more years of madness.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Biden will probably lose the election to Trump because of the exponentially-low-key campaigning the Democrats seem to be doing. The feeling I get is that they are barely campaigning at all and Trump is coming on with all this big-time-broadway spectacularism that appeals to the entertainment thirst of fools … it all serves to make Biden look weak. Playing straight into the hands of Trump and the Russians.
