Russia

Everyone scrolls down their Facebook newsfeed and read your friend’s latest posts, but is Facebook controlling what posts you see?

In countries like Russia and Pakistan, Facebook has built a way to keep certain restricted information from landing in people’s news feed.

The New York Times is reporting that Facebook has designed software to keep people from seeing content based on geographic areas.

The social media giant even deletes or blocks some content to Americans at the request of our government.

During a six-month period in 2015, Facebook blocked about 55,000 pieces of content.

People go to Facebook to read and respond to friends, family and businesses they trust. People trust that they are seeing a balanced slice of what their friends are posting.

In reality, it is possible that Facebook could suppress positive Trump posts during the campaign and push the negative ones onto people’s newsfeeds. A claim that many conservatives said was happening.

All of the censorship changes at Facebook could be the result of a dream the CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has to be in China.

There is a rumor online that Obama turned over the power of the Internet in October to help Facebook get access into China. The rumors of not confirmed, but Facebook and it’s employees support the Democratic Party passionately.

Mark Zuckerberg has been learning Mandarin and has met with President Xi Jinping on several occasions.

There are over a billion people in China and the tightly controlled Internet could be a gold mine for Zuckerberg.

In order to be in China, the social media king will need censor a great deal of content that the government doesn’t allow its people to see.

Currently censorship is a big deal with Facebook and the government. Both want to ban “fake and misleading” content from the platform and the Internet as a whole.

Controlling the media Americans can consume sounds a lot like China and it is scary to think who is actually picking the “trustworthy” news.

Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, had an interview where he spoke about the sources for Hillary’s emails and it isn’t Russia.

Hillary stood on the Debate stage and told the world that “17 intelligence agencies” have concluded that Russia is to blame for the hacks that has sent her campaign into a tailspin this year.

Every Democrat deflects the WikiLeaks questions by saying that Russia stole the information, but that doesn’t seem to be true.

The official statement from the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence have stated that Russia is the culprit, but are they?

Read the statement below and see that there is no evidence at all to confirm Russia’s involvement. The statement says that the methods of the hacking were “consistent” with Russian methods, but nothing concrete.

“The U.S. Intelligence Community (USIC) is confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails from US persons and institutions, including from US political organizations. The recent disclosures of alleged hacked e-mails on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts. These thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the US election process. Such activity is not new to Moscow—the Russians have used similar tactics and techniques across Europe and Eurasia, for example, to influence public opinion there. We believe, based on the scope and sensitivity of these efforts, that only Russia’s senior-most officials could have authorized these activities.”

Not only did the intelligence agencies not confirm Russia’s involvement, they blamed Russia for something they may not be involved in.

If we listen to Julian Assange in his most recent interview, he says that Russia is not the source.

If Russia isn’t the source, then who is?

We don’t know for sure, but there are a lot of people who are saying that Seth Rich, the DNC staffer killed while walking home in DC is most likely the one who leaked the emails.

Lobbyists, WikiLeaks and others have offered a cash reward to information on Seth Rich’s death. The donated rewards are over $140,000 now. Some people believe that Seth Rich is the one that leaked it and they are willing to put their money where their mouth is.

The one thing we do know is that Russia has denied any involvement and we don’t have any evidence that they are to blame.

Democrats have done a good job in deflecting and trying to downplay the credibility of WikiLeaks, but the truth will come out. Unfortunately we won’t know until after this election.

Let us know if you think Russia hacked Hillary in the comments below.

chaos

The moment we have been waiting for, the election on Tuesday, could just be the start of the chaos that will follow.

The FBI building was vandalized with the word “corrupt” spray painted on the side. Two men were arrested Saturday for the crime, but they hit Trump International Hotel as well.

Painting “corrupt” on the side of an FBI building would be unthinkable a year ago, but now a lot of people on both sides feel the agency has been corrupted.

What does it say about rule of law in America when many citizens question the FBI’s intentions?

The popular feeling about the FBI and the growing hate for police from the left and minority groups, law and order is being threatened.

Law and order is just one part of the chaos, the economy looks like it will take a hit too.

The “Father of Reaganomics” made a startling claim about what will happen to the stock market after the election.

“The markets are hideously inflated… If you don’t sell before the election, certainly do it afterwards. Government is going to be totally paralyzed regardless of who wins. There could be a 25% draw down on the markets.”

Twenty five percent is huge. That would mean that the stock market would drop from close to 18,000 to 13,500. A drop like that could be devastating to an already struggling economy.

It won’t help that the country is so divided over this election; more people will be absolutely against an elected president than any other time in recent history.

On top of all of our problems, the world has some major problems too.

It has been reported that Russia is going to attack ISIS in Syria within 24 hours and Al-Qaeda wants to attack here. There are threats against New York, Texas and Virginia.

ISIS wants to kill Americans on Election Day.

The Department of Homeland Security is weighing options to take over the elections on Tuesday.

CIA is talking about attacking Russia online if they tamper with our elections.

If we can make it through the election and pick a president, then that could be when the real fun starts.

Our trust in law and order, our democracy, media and our elected officials is reaching an all-time low and that could spell disaster.

We are living in a dangerous time. Regardless of who wins, things are going to get worse before they get better.

Do you think everything will be peaceful after the election or do you expect chaos? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

assange

Over the past three weeks, Julian Assange has had his Internet cut, feared dead and recorded an interview to answer the questions, “Is Russia His Source?”

The founder of WikiLeaks has been living in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for over four years as he directs the actions of his whistleblowing site.

Recent leaks have caused the DNC chief to resign and exposed tactics that may have stolen the election from Bernie Sanders.

WikiLeaks also put Hillary’s campaign head, John Podesta’s emails out for everyone to read.

Hillary and her team of media surrogates have pushed the narrative that Russia is to blame for all of the hacks, but Assange is setting the record strait.

In a 25-minute interview with John Pilger from RT that airs Saturday, Julian Assange tells the world that Russia is not to blame.

“The Clinton camp has been able to project a neo-McCarthyist hysteria that Russia is responsible for everything. Hillary Clinton has stated multiple times, falsely; that 17 US intelligence agencies had assessed that Russia was the source of our publications. That’s false – we can say that the Russian government is not the source.”

In a teaser released for the interview, Julian says that he feels bad for Hillary and we see a different side of Julian Assange.

The revelation that Russia is not behind the WikiLeaks would be a big one, but in all fairness it needs to be verified.

Hopefully, Assange will be able to give us more details to where the leaks came from, to fully vindicate the Russians.

If it turns out that Russia isn’t to blame, Hillary will look bad. A presidential candidate has been blaming the wrong country for crimes they may have not committed.

Make sure you tune in on Saturday to catch the Interview or check back with us as we update this ongoing groundbreaking story.

submarine

A Russian submarine was spotted off the coast of one our strongest allies and hints to a much larger conflict looming in the future.

Just off the UK coast a Russian submarine, believed to be one of three special subs that are incredibly armed.

The sub was spotted in the Irish Sea and is being tracked by the Royal Navy.

It was just last week that the Russian northern fleet went through the English Channel on their way to the Mediterranean Sea to assist Syria in attacking the last stronghold of ISIS.

There are reports that Russia is planning to violently attack ISIS in Aleppo, Syria on the eve of the U.S. elections.

America is also positioning subs and other military assets around the globe.

On Monday we learned that a nuclear sub was on its way to the South China Sea due to rising tensions. It is a show of force for the U.S.

Russia is using a show of force right now too. Their only aircraft carrier and much of their active navy is on its way to Syria now.

The final week of the elections could be more interesting than we thought.

Do you think Russia will off a full assault on ISIS in Syria? Let us know in the comments below.

attack

Many people woke up on Friday and couldn’t send a tweet or listen to Spotify, but the real reason they didn’t work could be due to an attack.

This morning Twitter, SoundCloud, Shopify and Spotify were completely down in almost the entire United States. Asia and Europe seemed to be ok.

The sites went down due to a DDOS attack on the DNS provider Dyn. To put it in simpler terms, part of the Internet in America was attacked and took down several sites.

Even sites like the Boston Globe, Reddit and Freshbooks were down. This was a big attack.

Nobody is claiming responsibility yet, and as of the publication of this article, all sites seem to be back up and running.

This could be an isolated event with some kids in their parents basement, or this could be an enemy testing the fence.

Hillary is probably already blaming the Russians, but whoever is committing these kinds of attacks, doesn’t intend to help the United States.

These attacks are acts of war, and in today’s day and age, any war will start with cyber attacks. We just hope they don’t escalate to full blown war.

What do you think about this morning’s cyber attacks? Let us know in the comments below.

Russia is racing towards the English Channel with their Northern Fleet, but where are they going?

In Wednesday night’s debate, the topic of Russia and Putin came up often and Hillary blamed the country for cyber crimes. Both candidates denounced any Russian involvement in our elections, but what is Russia doing now?

Here is what a diplomat said of Russia’s movements.

“They are deploying all of the Northern Fleet and much of the Baltic Fleet in the largest surface deployment since the end of the Cold War. This is not a friendly port call. In two weeks, we will see a crescendo of air attacks on Aleppo as part of Russia’s strategy to declare victory there.”

The goal is to end the Syrian war and their timing couldn’t be more of a message. The day before Americans go to the voting booths, Russia is planning an all out offensive attack in Syria.

There is no doubt that Russia is moving towards all out war in Syria and with their entire Northern Fleet, they could do a lot of damage.

Our leaders have been blaming Russia for a lot of events around the world, and it is going to come to a head right before the election.

What are your thoughts on Russia moving to attack ISIS in Syria? Let us know in the comments below.

A story is breaking that could give us a greater understanding of the tense relationship between Russia and the United States.

A year ago, two U.S. officials were reportedly drugged with a drug that has similar effects as the “date-rape drug”.

Both were drugged at separate times, but both were staying at an upscale Russian hotel.

The story broke due to another U.S. official who spoke to Radio Free Europe and was unnamed in the report.

The two officials that were drugged were found and taken to hospital to be given a medical test with sensitive tissue samples.

When the samples were about to be taken, the power went out in the building.

Both officials were then flown out of the country to attempt to get the samples, but too much time passed and the tests were inconclusive.

When the U.S. pushed Russia on the event, they asked for the evidence, but there was none to give.

During a press conference at the State Department this week, Elizabeth Kennedy Trudeau didn’t say much, but did say, “We are troubled. We remain troubled by the way our diplomatic and consular staff have been treated over the past two years.”

Apparently things like this are not new and that isn’t good.

U.S. and Russia have all but cut off communication regarding Syria and things will get worse before they get better.

I just looks like things have been getting bad for a lot longer than we thought.

The DNC had their secrets exposed by hackers and people leaking information and now the Dems are saying whatever they can to get you not to pay attention.

Remember over the summer when WikiLeaks released the DNC emails and Debbie Wasserman Schultz was fired with the CEO of the DNC and other employees?

Well the new interim chairwoman, Donall Brazile said that people should not read the latest leaked documents because you could get a virus on your computer.

Don’t look at the criminal activity because you could download some malware. She also went on to claim that Russia did all the hacks, but that has not been proven either.

Nancy Pelosi didn’t want the emails released and she knows for sure the hack was done by Russia. How does she know for sure?

She calls this an “electronic Watergate”. The difference here is that we don’t know the hackers yet, and if they are even hackers. It could have been an internal leak like Julian Assange and Oliver Stone think.

Nancy Pelosi also begged Paul Ryan to to not use the hacked emails as part of political ammunition.

Is she kidding? Her party decided to keep Bernie Sanders from winning and forced Hillary Clinton on the people and now it is blowing up in their face.

The liberals who are trying to scare you and blame Russians are the same ones that are not taking responsibility for their party.

They want to blame everyone else, but don’t take responsibility for the emails that prove that they wanted Hillary to win and not democracy.

Russia

Tensions with Russia are heating up and this week they took a very dangerous step in letting us know they are serious.

A Russian fighter jet flew within ten feet of a U.S. Navy spy plane over the Black sea.

The jet carried out a maneuver called an intercept to harass and redirect the spy plane.

An official spoke on the condition of anonymity about the incident and said that the event lasted roughly 19 minutes.

He also said the maneuver was “unsafe and unprofessional”.

This is just the latest in several aggressions toward our military around the world.

Iran has been doing similar maneuvers with boats in the Persian Gulf.

A situation is escalating with Russia that is hard to deny at this point. Every day, it seems like, the government is telling us that Russia is hacking our systems and threatening our elections.

Now they are actually threatening American lives with such reckless and dangerous military actions.

All of this comes on the heels of a rough meeting between Putin and Obama in China for the G20 summit over last week that sparked a lot of comments on Twitter.

Obama and Hillary Clinton designed a new “Russian Reset” back when Obama first took office.

It is safe to say that no matter how much the Democrats try and tie the Russian problems to Donald Trump, they only have themselves to blame.

What do you think about the actions of Russia and the failed “Russian reset”? Let us know in the comments below.
