The United States government has interfered with more elections than any other government on the face of the earth. But suddenly, the US is grandstanding and pretending it matters that other nations use the exact same tactics.
“Ah, the peddler propaganda!” says Joe Joseph with The Daily Sheeple while reading a headline declaring that Russians penetrated U.S. voter systems. “Say it ain’t so! A clandestine operation by a foreign government here in the United States? No. Couldn’t be!” he said sarcastically.
The overly biased and left-leaning media attempted to portray this “interference” as a big deal. But as always, propaganda is easy to break down.
The U.S. official in charge of protecting American elections from hacking says the Russians successfully penetrated the voter registration rolls of several U.S. states prior to the 2016 presidential election.
In an exclusive interview with NBC News, Jeanette Manfra, the head of cybersecurity at the Department of Homeland Security, said she couldn’t talk about classified information publicly, but in 2016, “We saw a targeting of 21 statesand an exceptionally small number of them were actually successfully penetrated.” –NBC News
Reading between the lines, all this means is pretty much nothing, other than the US government blatantly displaying their hypocrisy while interfering in the elections of other countries. Of course, the media is going to make a big story out of this. “We’re going to turn back the clock a little bit,” says Joseph.
“The US is no stranger to interfering in the elections of other countries. So, since we’re into this whole Russia thing and Russia’s so bad and ‘shame on you, Russia’...well, let’s take a look at all the ways that the United States has interfered.”
According to data gathered by the LA Times, the U.S. has a long history of attempting to influence presidential elections in other countries. The United States government has tried to manipulate as many as 81 elections between 1946 and 2000. According to a database amassed by political scientist Dov Levin of Carnegie Mellon University, that number doesn’t include military coups and regime change efforts following the election of candidates the U.S. didn’t like, notably those in Iran, Guatemala, and Chile. Nor does it include general assistance with the electoral process, such as election monitoring.
Levin defines intervention as “a costly act which is designed to determine the election results [in favor of] one of the two sides.” These acts, carried out in secret two-thirds of the time, include funding the election campaigns of specific parties, disseminating misinformation or propaganda, training locals of only one side in various campaigning, or get-out-the-vote techniques, helping one side design their campaign materials, making public pronouncements, or threats in favor of or against a candidate, and providing or withdrawing foreign aid.
“There’s plenty of history here to show that we’ve been involved in intervening in foreign elections. We did it more than anybody else! So, why should we be surprised when other countries do it to us,” says Joseph. Again, keep in mind, the election interference was incredibly menial in comparison to the US’s previous manipulations.
You need to be able to “see and understand the propaganda coming from NBC and the mainstream television media.” In case you haven’t figured it out yet, most of the mainstream media is straight up propaganda with the minds of Americans and public opinion being manipulated every second. This has been admitted by the media, yet the public continues to be largely unaware that they are being controlled. In fact, the US media tried very hard to manipulate public opinion in the 2016 election. It’s become more than obvious unless you’re one who has been manipulated.

This is unfortunately what empires do in their attempt to sustain the unsustainable and support the core. They support questionable authoritarian regimes. They undermine and dismantle ‘democratic’ governments. They spin narratives that its all for their citizen’s defence. And they continue to abuse their power and people to enrich the ruling caste.
It would be nice if they could heed the words of Bradley Cooper’s character, Eddie Morra, in the movie Limitless: [Safeguards a]gainst aggressive overexpansion? There aren’t because there are no safeguards in human nature. We’re wired to overreach. Look at history, all the countries that have ever ruled the world – Portugal, with its big, massive navy… All they’ve got now are salt cods and cheap condos. And Brits? Now they’re just sitting in their dank little island, fussing over their suits. No one’s stopping and thinking, ‘Hey, we’re doing pretty well. We got France, we got Poland, we got a big Swiss bank account… You know what? Let’s not invade Russia in the winter, let’s go home, let’s pop a beer and let’s live off the interest.’
I take some solace when I realize that when it all comes down that all those in the MSM are going to pay a terrible price for the side they chose.
Foreign countries are allowed to have lobbies to change the laws passed by Congress in their favor. The Clinton Foundation was a place a country could go to pay to get things done in their best interest. Is there anything out there that isn’t hypocrisy?
Dogs aren’t into hypocrisy.
Had a cat once that was like a dog. She wouldn’t let someone in the house that she thought was untrustworthy. She was always right, too. When traveling, she guarded the car with the same zeal. She knew a few tricks like sit, etc.
United States Government, HYPOCRISY is thy name. Naked perverted screaming rape HYPOCRISY…..ughh
The Bible teaches “vanity, vanity, all is vanity.” I think it is hypocrisy instead.
Remember when (then President) Barack Obama flew all the way to Great Britain to influence the outcome of the up-coming June 23, 2016 Brexit vote?
Most of Great Britain was furious at the nerve of the United States’ base attempt at interfering in the internal affairs of another country.
Remember how Obama kept denying any attempt to influence the Brexit vote while describing all the sh*t that was going to come the UK’s way if the Brexit vote passed?
And now our feckless fully-dysfunctional government is all up in the face of the Russians.
Give me a break.
Obama also interfered in Israel’s last election and is interfering in the present government here.
The seedy cesspool AIPAC is black mailing at least 1/3rd of Congress to get what ever they want. Money $38 Billion welfare checks to picking which wars and countries the US Military will attack for their profit and desire. America was hijacked long ago back to at least 1913 thus the Family Fed Reserve aka: money changers took over our economy for their benefit to turn Americans into their debt slaves. So it not just election interference, its the entire hijacked US Government we lost.
Wear that I voted sticker as a badge of delusional patriotism while all of your rights are disappearing in lockstep rapidity.
Obama used taxpayer dollars to interfere in Israel’s election. He wanted some left wing
hack instead of Netanyahu. He didn’t want the UK Brexit to happen and he said so before
the Brits voted. All Rothschild puppets are pro-globalist and anti-nationalist.
Hogs at a feed trough. Vultures fighting over dead carrion. Congressmen preparing a budget. Hard to tell what you are looking at!
Do as I say not as I do
Because I s*** so deep you can’t run away
I beg to differ, on the contrary
I agree with every worth that you say
Talk is cheap and lies are expensive
My wallet’s fat and so is my head
Hit and run and then I’ll hit you again
A smartass but I’m playing dumb
