Mueller Indicts Russians; Markets Rally; Mueller Doesn’t Indict Russians; Markets Rally

Any questions?

You fuckers have good leads. You know the market is gonna trade up no matter what. Sure, every once in a while you’ll be raped by an ETN going to zero, or a CNBC expose showing what a scam crypto proxies are — but that’s part of the beauty of investing.

After all, you cannot have joy without first experiencing extreme levels of pain and agony.

Earlier today, Mueller indicted 13 Russians for shit posting on the internet — in an attempt to disparage Hillary Clinton — a true American patriot. Mueller outlined, in great detail, the lengths of depravity these Russians took, traveling throughout the country like a circus act — attempting to elect Trump.

On that news, stocks dipped, but now they’re coming back. Should stocks dip again, you’d be wise to purchase them. If you do no purchase dips, perhaps one day a Fly Administration will investigate you for crimes against America — subverting our capitalistic system through wanton acts of aggression against share prices. Your name might be posted online and your employers contacted. You might be publicly shamed and humiliated. You might even lose your job.

        Well let’s see, he’s wasted/I mean spent/I mean squandered reportedly more than $12 million of taxpayer’s funds and so far he’s gone after a guy for an alleged (yet unproved) crime more than 10 years ago related to Ukraine (not Russia), and two other guys who got caught in a so-called ‘process crime’. Now that’s really an achievement.

        But even those pseudo-crimes are going to be fought (and likely eventually won), because Meuller’s entire activity is based upon such incredibly shaky ground.

        Now he’s gone after some Russians! Tell me, why does it take a special prosecutor to go after a bunch of Russian shitposters? Can’t the FBI and DOJ do that? Those Russians (who stand accused but not convicted of anything yet) have cost the taxpayer about a million dollars each.

        Here’s my prediction: Manafort will end up winning his case in criminal court, and will also win a large civil case for damages against the US Government and possibly the prosecution team (that is why they have taken out large liability insurance policies). Flynn will have his plea overturned. Papadopoulos? Who cares. And the Russian shitposters? The worst they will get is a slap on the hand.

        And when it’s finished, all that Mueller will have achieved (if he and Rosenstein manage to avoid prosecution) is wasting, I mean flushing down the crapper, probably $100 million dollars. But nobody talks about that, do they?

            Here, let me translate for you. Mueller is so desperate to indict something, anything, in his hopeless wild goose chase, that he is going after anything Russian, including Russian shitposters. Think about it.

    We won the cold war. But we have been as gracious toward the Russians in our victory as the French were toward the Germans after WWI. Had hoped we’d be better.

    So we’re right to watch out for the Russians. People are reactive creatures and we’d be wise to monitor their reactions to our douchebaggery. But better yet, we could stop the cycle.

    Help me understand this…. Russians buying a pathetic 50k worth of ads on Facebook and then shit talking on Twitter is an arrestable offense but this clown Tom Steyer spending millions to say how bad Trump is remains something that is just fine to do? Didn’t both the DNC and the RNC try to influence the election in each of their favors? What about me putting a yard sign out saying I want Rand Paul to win the election, does that mean I can be arrested? And how do I sign up to be “influenced” by these mysterious Russians? Maybe I will start reporting my neighbor to the FBI for trying to influence me in my local elections with his shitty yard signs. Oh that’s right, the FBI can’t locate him because I only gave his address and name. Fuck what is an Amerikan to do?

            TC: “Russians aren’t Americans”

            My point was that unless he was an American Indian, his lineage came from elsewhere too.

            If asking someone a question makes them a racist, then what does asking you if you are an idiot make me?

            My point was not that asking someone about their race is racists. My point is that gap changed his opinion based on who’s side of the argument you were on.

            Also, lineage has nothing to do with the arguement. Russains and Ameicans have different rights in America, regardless of lineage. It’s unfortunate that a grade school dropout had to explain that to you

      Russia has sowed discord on both sides. There is plenty of evidence they helped Hillary too. It doesn’t equal collusion, and doesn’t mean they succeeded in altering any election results.

      Oh, and the funniest part to me is the well known history of the US meddling in foreign elections. I guess it’s OK when we do it?

These indictments are just the Prologue… Mueller is writing a long book.

          So it’s legal for US citizens to shit post during an election but not ok for a bunch of foreigners to do it?

          Ok TC, I get that. (What a fucking simpleton)

          But is it ok for US political parties and or citizens to hire foreign folks to hack the election? Seems that the only group who tried that needed up losing the election.

            Anybody with a high IQ would either already know or quickly be able to discover that YES, it is legal for Americans to post shit during an election but it is NOT legal for foreigners ***posing as Americans*** to do the same thing.

            Anybody with a high IQ would have also already found the Grand Jury indictment and read the measly 37-pages of it and realized that the idictment doesn’t center on the Russian’ opinion or candiaate preference, but instead on the fraudalent manner in which they tried to spread their ideas.

            Numb nuts

            The question was rhetorical

            Shit posting is shit posting. Anyone with an IQ of 85 is smart enough not to believe in shit posters, either foreign or domestic.

            It had zero impact and was deminimus. That fact you believe it had an impact leads everyone to question your IQ.

            Perhaps the answer is you’re just biased disingenuous shill.

    This was the script that was supposed to win the Oscar:

    PLOT
    Hillary needs competition to look like it was a race and to debate but also to delineate herself. Note that the competition was all white, old, male.

    CHARACTERS
    Lincoln Chafee: The likable lug, or doddering old man
    Martin O’Malley: Looked sharp but deferred to Hillary like a sad puppy
    Jim Webb: Another white bread, too intense and sharp, represented the right

    Bernie: Bernie was supposed to represent the crazy left but something happened on the way to the coliseum, he went off script which really pissed Hillary off. Now she has to campaign instead of sip champagne. Rallies, debates, showing up at patriotic events, eating at greasy spoons in Iowa. She was too tired to run against Trump.
    Then the famous “white people need to own up to their past mistakes” speech.
    Game over.

    After the cold war, the Russians meddled in our elections much more directly than just a bunch of tweets …and they specifically targeted the leader of our government. They then violated the agreements that ended the cold war by putting military bases in Mexico and the Caribbean, adding former NATO allies to the Soviet bloc, and basing missiles near our borders. Perhaps most disturbingly, they were involved in a coup that overthrew the democratically-elected government of our closest ally and most important trading partner Canada ..and installed one of their puppets to run that country.

    The restraint shown by the US in not going to a hot war with these assholes is amazing. Credit must be given to our leaders for their restraint. Hopefully this is a passing phase and we’ll survive the ascendancy of the warmongers who control the politics of Russia.

The disgusting Russians, Israel’s colony, expanded their filthy corrupt marxist empire run by satanically possessed dual-shitizen Israeli firsters right up to the borders of good ole sovereign USA, the bastion of democracy ruled by US citizens for the good of US citizens. And yes, Putin was personally involved in a coup that installed his soi boi, a beta bolshevik cuck Trudeau as the head of Canada with the intent to corrupt amerikans with divisive communist agenda destroying a great nation, its culture, community, religion, tradition and family by promoting depravities of homosexuality, LGBThaha lewdness and pedophilia to young children.

    Honestly, based on the indictment, it doesn’t look like any of the indictees worked directly with anyone form the Trump Campaign. Of course, this does not mean that ther won’t be other Russians idicted in the future.

    However, Trump is so scared of offending Putin it any manner, it’s clear that Putin has sometihng on Trump. I assume that it is shady business deals that inked before Trump even decalred his candidacy.

    Trump’s Team (WH + campaign) is a clown car; no one has shown any kind of deep thinking or long-term strategy and they keep making things worse with unforced errors. My theory is that ex-KGB chief Putin saw in Trump a weak person with a large ego and thirst for wealth and power – just the type of person that could be blackmailed quite easily. Once he saw that Trump was interested in the Presidency, Putin went all out to install his puppet. So

    So I think that Trump probably didn’t collude with Russia to get elected – but that doesn’t mean that he isn’t inlfuenced by them. That’s probably the same reason why no one in Trump’s family can seem to get a security clearance.

    However, Trump is so scared of offending Putin it any manner, it’s clear that Putin has something on Trump. I assume that it is shady business deals that inked before Trump even decalred his candidacy. My theory is that ex-KGB chief long ago Putin saw in Trump a weak-minded person (although one that *can* identify with a large ego and thirst for wealth and power – a perfect asset. Once he saw that Trump was interested in the Presidency, Putin went all-out to install his puppet. Trump may not have even known Putin’s intentions until very late in the campaign. All the pre-election signs pointed to someone that wanted – and expected – to lose a close election and then blame someone else for their loss (yes, I do agree that Hillary was a very falwed candidate who still can’t admit that she had anything to do with her own failure).

    So I think that Trump probably didn’t collude with Russia to get elected – but that doesn’t mean that he isn’t currently influenced by them. That’s probably the same reason why no one in Trump’s family can seem to get a security clearance.
