It's simply astounding that nobody discusses Israeli influence on the American election. It's well known that over 50% of all Democratic party donations, and 25% of Republican donations come from Israeli sources. The two largest donors to US politics are Sheldon Adelman and Haim Saban, both devout Israelis. The most powerful lobby in US politics, bar none, is AIPAC. Their entire reason for existence is to lobby for Israeli interests. They typically have the US President, as well as much of Congress attend their annual meetings.

Nobody discusses Israeli influence on the American election because if you do, the US stupid law would consider you anti-semitic!

EXCELLENT.

Lock him up.

Assange and the Russian hacker's hand in the 2016 US Election will absolutely be punished.

So let me get this straight; because Hillary was exposed for being a crook and a liar and a thief and a murderer.... The people who exposed her should be locked up?

Can you tell me why she isn't in jail yet despite having committed treason multiple times?

Assange did the USA a great service in exposing the illegal operations behind the scenes.

LOL. Trump is still president though.


Till we formally vote him out in 2020.

And who are you going to vote in? Trump must the best ( not perfect ) president you've had in a while, at least he has some balls not like the last few......

You just might be confusing "balls" with "stupidity".
Nobody is confusing anything. Trump is indeed the best president we have had in the last 20 years.

Yeah... our votes ah? Hillary had a lot more votes than trump and he still the president.
Hillary had millions of ILLEGAL votes that were later overturned. With all the ILLEGAL votes overturned trump also won the popular vote.
But popular votes don't matter in the USA because we have this great thing called the electoral college; a thing that prevents busy and small minded individuals that enjoy living in crowded cities with unsustainable pricing from over-riding the votes of the rest of the country.

Which is exactly why Trump won. Since he won most every state in the nation.

We will get a replacement and take him out democratically.

#1 Hillary was never impeached.

#2 Hillary isn't in office - and therefore can't be impeached at present.

#3 TREASON has to be declared by the congress. I don't even think you know what that word means or the legal consequences of it.

That's 3 strikes.

I will enjoy knowing Assange is going to rot in prison.

Hope he doesn't drop the soap.

Actually... lots of people do... and while many probably ARE anti-semitic, they still have no issues spouting nonsense like "Israel controls the US" when it's pretty much the opposite.

Check out the paper on "The Israel Lobby" -> here's a link to get you started:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Israel_Lobby_and_U.S._Foreign_Policy

There are plenty talking about it - and while the article itself isn't accurate, it shows that people CAN speak about it :)

Initially he did the world a favor but quickly was corrupted. It will be interesting to see if they turn him over to the US or the Swiss (rape charges). While the US intelligence services want to throw the book at him, on the outside Trump might want to exonerate him because of his contributions to the Trump campaign. With so many unknowns I hope the British think long and hard before making a decision .....

Not Swiss; it was Sweden.

Electoral colleges had that intention in the beginning, but Democrats and Republicans have both been pushing those boundaries to better suit their side. It isn't exactly the perfect objective solution sadly.

Trump is hardly the best president US had. Everybody doing taxes this year should know you and I are getting shafted harder than ever.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of Trump, but I'm definitely not a fan of Hilary either. We got served two plates of steaming crap for presidency this time around.

The false accusations of "sexual assault and rape" are so lame, they scream to the sky. None of the so called "human rights organizations" are protecting him, even though he just published the truth. That's how the so called "human rights activists" defend whistleblowers.

If Assange was a journalist in Russia, and those fake accusations were made by Putin, the western media would yell for months about Assange's "human rights". They wouldn't stop. They'd organize protests to help Assange. But since the violence was exerted from another superpower, the media is either silent, or attack Assange. And the false accusations stay.

Hypocrisy at its best.

"Assange was granted political asylum to protect him from state persecution (the US). It's the same exact rationale used by literally millions of illegal immigrants coming into the US. Except in Assange's case it's a valid reason.

Sweden's role has been truly disgusting. They forced Assange to live in virtual prison for seven years, on an allegation that he didn't use a condom. England is similarly disgusting."

The biggest shame is on AUSTRALIA! They turned their back on Assange. Gutless, pathetic worms in that gov't, for sure!

I have read the now unsealed March 6, 2018, indictment against Julian Assange for conspiring with Chelsea Manning, and one part of it says that "Manning copied a Linux operating system to a CD, to allow Manning to access a United States Department of Defense computer file that was accessible only to users with administrative-level privileges." Other parts of the indictment says that Manning used a Linux operating system to gain access to a "hash file" of someone else's password.

I don't want to presume too much about how incredible this scenario is. I have Ubuntu Linux on my laptop, and it does not turn me into a superspy, but are we talking about some obscure version of Linux that is used to access files in a way that I am not aware of? Can anyone speak to this?

That is a FLAT OUT LIE.

TRUMP DID NOT WIN THE POPULAR VOTE by ANY MEASURE.

A bold faced, flat out, Fox News, conservative talk LIE for parrots to repeat.



Donald J. Trump Republican 62,980,160
Hillary R. Clinton Democratic 65,845,063
Gary Johnson Libertarian 4,488,931
Jill Stein Green 1,457,050
Well, if you don't like the electrical college, you should go live in a place without electricity :)

I suspect that many of the Trump voters are pining for the pre-technology days...

By the way... why has this thread become a Trump arguing thread?!? The US had been going after Assange long before he was elected....

#1 That quote about Trump winning the popular vote WAS A LIE.

#2 This time around, the Democrats, anchor babies, minorities, furloughed federal workers...all of them are going to come out with a vengeance and sweep that TRASH out of the White House back into the gutter.

Waters, Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib, Omar, Harris...are gonna link up to form Voltron.

:facepalm: That's why every state, including those ruled by republican governors, rebuked Trump's half-assed and unfounded attempt at rooting out voter fraud.
