Conspiracy theory of the day

No, it wasn't Russia but insider leaks that did in Hillary.

I mean, who do you believe, Assange or the CIA?

The worst thing about all this is that it is aimed at promoting further conflict with Russia. This puts everyone in danger for the sake of more profits for the arms and security industries – including of course bigger budgets for the CIA. As thankfully the four year agony of Aleppo comes swiftly to a close today, the Saudi and US armed and trained ISIS forces counter by moving to retake Palmyra. This game kills people, on a massive scale, and goes on and on.
heh. it's a conspiracy to get money for the "military Industrial complex", a phrase coined by that extremist left winger, Ike.

this is, of course, a far left wing site and the article includes Hillary's election shenanigans against Bernie. And of course, no one needed the Russians to figure out how her minions manipulated the press in her favor. 

but the "headsup" is from the very right wing blog "Gateway pundit".

I sort of agree with this quote from the Diplomad2.0:,

In conclusion, did Putin throw the election? I very much doubt it. I doubt those blue collar workers in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Ohio, etc., were marching to the beat laid down by Moscow.
Hillary and her cohorts engaged in unethical and illegal activities which came to light and the people did not like those activities...
 The Russians did not create the shady Clinton Foundation, although they gave generously to it and got access to US uranium in exchange, the Russians did not have Hillary put highly sensitive material on her private server, they did not have the DNC pass debate questions to Hillary, they did not . . . . well, you can fill in the blanks.

Actually, Hillary lost the election with one word: Deplorables.

mad people go to the polls, so you don't want to make folks mad.

As for the Bernie backers: I suspect a lot stayed home.

And yes, I am ignoring the total vote count, at least until they figure out how many dead folks voted.

Ever wonder why the Green party only wanted recounts in states that Trump won?

and one of these days, you might find why a lot of us refused to vote Democratic: fear of religious persecution.

this NYTimes discussion was found on NPR, discussed if they should report the news correctly or slant it to echo their opinions (AKA "Truth").

that link was via GetReligion blog who analyzes the story and adds their own opinion:

Now, for me, the next logical question would be to ask why these heartland folks voted the way they did. It's crucial to know that the Trump vote – if you read what voters said – included lots of people who openly said that they didn't want to vote for Trump, but felt that they had no other choice. Lots of these people (in-depth exit polls will soon tell us more) linked their vote to cultural, moral and religious tends at the U.S. Supreme Court and in executive orders from the White House. In other words, they feared emerging cracks in the First Amendment and what they saw as threats to free speech, freedom of association and freedom of religion.

But that item is not in the vocabulary of the elites, alas.
