    I dated a Russian chic from Eastern Russia this summer. She was a communist who hated Putin. Accused him of installing the governor of Vladivostok in the last election so who she believed to be the properly elected communist party candidate would not gain power. Why does Putin always bash Communism? He said and I quote, "Communism failed under Communist." He has referred to it as a fairy tale that cannot work on many occasions. Very strange??? I find it difficult to believe this guy's narrative.

      In public Putin obviously denounces Communism. But look what he DOES when the cameras are off. That´s what matters. It´s the actions what matter. And Putin´s actions are 100% communist.

    I watched the Active Measures (not very amazing) - it felt like a complete Hillary/DNC propaganda film. No Wikileaks, Pizzagate, Ukraine, troll farms, etc ... was not the reason Hillary lost. Here is a news flash for the delusional Hillary supporters, when you call the 70% of white people racist, 50% of the men as bigots/misogynist and the 70% of the Christians deplorables, THEY WON'T VOTE FOR YOU! This was all within Hillary's control. Trump is a bumbling buffoon, and no one can control him. The deals cited could be very inconsequential. And no one is thinking Putin is a great guy. Trump was just smart enough to sense what people want. People overlooked all these negatives and voted Trump anyway.

      +Nicholas Seitz So u are voting for people that make u "feel" good and not for your "values." My guess is that this is not true, u are either fooling me or fooling urself. If u don't vote, then you are irrelevant. You probably are a leftist, as "value" voters don't think like you. I don't care about the "clown" that is president, as long as they are pushing in the direction for the right ideas.
      If a fireman comes to save u from ur burning house, are u going to ask how many women he has slept with or whether he paid his taxes? This is silly thinking ... As long as he is doing the job. Sure it would be better if the person is of high personal standing, but one has to be adult about this.

I could spend the rest of the evening listing the ways in which Trump isn't qualified to helm this country. That doesn't mean I'll settle for Hillary just because she's the other choice.

    I just finished watching this movie and the evidence, information gathered, and the Many Connections that Trump has had with Russians is scary. I feel like we have just been invaded by Russian and they Won without firing a single shot. I knew that Trump was crooked and a compulsive Liar but I didn't know just how far his connections went with Russia. Sadly Dirty Donald's Legion of loyal FOLLOWERS will condemn this movie without even seeing it. But for those of you that have not fallen under Trump's Russian Propaganda Machine I urge you to watch it; and make your own minds.

      Not a Trump fan at all but I do have to say, Becare-ful. So far, I've watched multiple interviews on Ryan. So far, Bryan offers nothing new on the Russian corruption ring or Manafort (which was a well known situation among DC circles and most political groups around Washington (DNC or GOP) were actually surprised Manafort didn't get arrested indicted many years ago. In fact, word out is that most Republicans wanted nothing to do with Manafort and even despised him. Sure it bugs me that a few GOPers kept him around. However, when it comes to tying in Trump, Bryan falls back on a lot of little assertions as connective tissue. Assertions I have yet to see him back with direct evidence. That's typical conspiracy theory propagation 101. Assertions made without evidence and easily be dismissed for the same reason.
      Keep in mind, our spy agencies (as well as Isreal, UK and everywhere else in Europe) watch the Russians like a hawk (and all those who deal with them). That's how come Manafort was indicted (for old crimes) so quickly when Mueller jumped on board. In order for that to happen, they had to already have loads of information and evidence gathered on the guy. But Mueller's investigation on Trump has been long and complex 2 years. It's not even focused on Conspiracy. Its focused on looking for 'obstruction' over Comey. Remember, Mueller can't indict the president. He only writes a report of his findings to the DOJ which goes to Congress. Congress doesn't need an indictment or proof of a crime to impeach. They only need the probability. If Trump has done all these dealings as Bryan's assertions claim, Mueller would have loads on Trump (Just like with Manafort). More than likely, he would have enough to write a report to congress pretty quickly recommending impeachment (even if the activities were legal). He wouldn't be wasting his time with "Obstruction". Also, Trump's administration has been the most leaky in information. yet, nothing credible on these assertions. There is less than a 1% chance private citizen Bryan put something together that our agencies don't already know.
      I am not saying Bryan's claims aren't true. He very well could be 100% on the mark. I'm saying the odds are against it. One Example: Making assertions that Manafort bought a Condo with the Trump organizations as a connection to Ukraine/Russians, becomes a real stretch. Coincidence? Yes it actually can be! The Trump Organization owns so much real estate in New York, its almost impossible to do anything in New York, long term, without having some affiliation with them (no matter who you are). Especially if you want a place to live. The Trump Organization is the cream of the crop when it comes to high value condos and high value living rentals, and their reputation puts them in that demand.

    Collusion with Russia ties to Trump is a bunch of BS. It is just a scheme to clear Hillary Clinton and frame Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton has ties with Russia. I don't believe any information that the media puts out. I just bought 3 books to read from Barnes and Noble today. One of them is called, "Death of a Nation", which the movie was baste off of. I bought a book called, "The Russian Hoax, The illicit Scheme to clear Hillary Clinton and Frame Donald Trump". I am reading that book as we speak. And I bought a book called "Messing with the Enemy surviving in a social media world of hacker, terrorists, Russians, and fake news", I hope to be reading that one soon. Take my word, don't listen to the media, and do your own research, go to the library or book store, if your looking for truth.

    If this is anywhere near true, one must ask one's self where was McCain when Hillary was doing the Uranium One deal? If all this has been going on for years, what exactly was Obama going to be more flexible on after he was elected? Why was Bill Clinton over there giving speeches and getting paid millions? This Russian crap has been going on forever, and none of the other administrations did one thing about it, yet now they all want to lay it at Trump's door. Oh wow, in 2004 before Trump ever even dreamed of running for President the Russians made a move on Trump because they had a crystal ball and knew what the outcome of the election would be in 2016! More idiot reporting!

    The main problem is anyone who hasn't taken the time to become well-informed, free of misinformation and disinformation, on all the major issues of today.
    The main problem is anyone who isn't actively participating in the political process to make sure that only the most Loving/most Wise among us become our public servants.
    The dynastic plutocratic families, the corporate oligarchs, the international banksters, many of whom are Zionists (like the Neocons and members of AIPAC) and/or members of secret societies, who dominate the politicians and the legal system and the financial system and the mainstream media and the corporations and the police and the military, are wreaking havoc upon the People of planet Earth and upon our beloved Mother Earth.
    They who are not giving their time, energy, talents, and resources to the political process are complicit in their heinous crimes against humanity and have blood on their hands. They can never ever dare speak of Love, Peace, Joy or Creativity.

    A decade from now books and documentaries will continue to proliferate attempting to prove the impossible: that Russian hacking or whatever it is determined the outcome of the 2016...without affecting a single vote. Quite a trick. But in the interim the polarization of American society will progress beyond the point of healing and, don't try to deny it, the U.S. will advance with the steam of anti-Russian paranoia and animosity toward a nuclear catastrophe with the world's other major nuclear power.

    Sounds like libel to me... There is no connection between Trump and Russia... however there are plenty of Connections between Oleg Deripaska and Bob Mueller, Andy McCabe, Chirstopher Steele, Hillary Clinton, etc and as you will remember Obama told Romney in 2012 that Russia was not our enemy? What happened so quickly? And if there were all of these connections why did Nellie Ohr and Bruce Ohr not discover all of them and reveal them? Why no proof if there are this many connections? Where is some proof which is admissible in a court of law?

      I mean, the obvious response here is that by your own standards you are libeling Bob Mueller, Andy McCabe, Christopher Steele and Hillary Clinton. You have significantly less evidence of their wrongdoing than is hiding in plain sight with Trump. It's not a witch hunt when there are multiple indictments. People aren't "flipping" on nobody. They're flipping on Trump, and they have a reason for doing so.
