(She's such an ingrate): Hillary Clinton accuses Facebook, Twitter and Google of enabling Russian agents
Two of those sites kissed her pant-suited dishonest butt before the primary, during the primary, and ever since she lost the election. Hell, since 2008 they've been carrying her water and fawning all over her. Who would've thunk those photos of her in her sunglasses just tippy-tapping away on her Blackberry would eventually come back to haunt her? They were all over both Google and Facebook. Twitter too, but Twitter is bad because Donald Trump rules Twitter. He may get criticised, pummelled, berated and accused, but he definitely calls the tune.
Hillary Clinton accuses Facebook, Twitter and Google of enabling Russian agents
STANFORD — Speaking in the heart of Silicon Valley on Friday, Hillary Clinton accused Facebook, Twitter and Google of enabling Russian agents in a plot to throw the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump.
She called for the United States to take a hard line on Russian aggression, predicting that the Kremlin would continue its attempts to influence elections as soon as next year — when dozens of congressional seats will be contested.
“Their weapon of choice is not tanks or missiles, but let’s not mince words: This is a new kind of Cold War — and it is just getting started,” the former secretary of state and Democratic presidential nominee told about 500 students at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
This "new cold war" thing really has me upset. Crazy old crone is really trying her damn best to get us into a big pissing match with Russia. All for her neocon and neo-liberal bosses who are so desperately trying to stop this country's inevitable slide into second-class nationhood as BRICS takes over the world's economic leadership. But rather than allow that to happen, the Clinton's, their Turd Way buddies, and their owners (the 1%), would rather see it ALL burn. If they can't have it all (the world's wealth) then no one else can have any of it.
Do people even think for a moment that Google and Fakebook didn't grovel and pander for Her Heinous??? What kid of idiots inhabit this country? How can they not know that in truth, most people don't believe one word of this nonsense? Do these people really think they can convince us that it was Russia who lost her the election? That we're just imaging that the reason we didn't vote for her is because we didn't want another money-grubbing, self-serving, centre-right Clinton in the Oval Office? How does that work?
There was so much propaganda and disinformation spread about her, what fantabulous 'qualifications' she had to lead the country, and how she was just about the grearest thing since white bread. You were DIRECTED to that type of journalistic tripe when using Google looking for 'news' or information. There were Clinton Creature Facebook pages . Check out the Zucketberg/Podesta email below. Facebook PROMOTED her. Well, this is what they get for their support and help trying to get her coronated. OR is this just some kind of goofy disinformation campaign to promote more fake news??? There is no way that she can believe this latest line of BS.:
The Clinton campaign’s chief technology officer, Stephanie Hannon, came from Google, as did the campaign’s chief product officer, Osi Imeokparia. At least two other key Clinton campaign staffers, Derek Parham and Jason Rosenbaum, also previously worked at Google.
Several outside firms connected to Google also worked on the Clinton 2016 campaign. Those included Civis Analytics and The Groundwork, two companies that compiled data and polling on voters for the campaign and that were funded by Google’s Schmidt. Hillary for America spent more than $590,000 on services from The Groundwork and at least $48,000 on Civis Analytics in this campaign cycle. Clinton’s primary super PAC, Priorities USA, has spent more than $800,000 with Civis Analytics this cycle.
Had she won the election, Clinton would have been significantly indebted to Google and Schmidt, whom she has referred to as her “longtime friend.” For comparison, Schmidt’s future team at Civis Analytics was credited with helping produce his five million vote margin of victory during Obama’s 2012 election, and Schmidt subsequently enjoyed extensive access at the Obama White House.
Schmidt took on a similarly active role from the earliest days of the Clinton 2016 campaign, helping design, finance, and implement its digital voter-targeting operation. Internal campaign emails released by WikiLeaks show that Schmidt met with the team working on Clinton’s incipient campaign on April 2nd and 3rd, 2014, before it was even announced. Just three months after the meetings, with future campaign chairman John Podesta and former Clinton State Department aide Cheryl Mills, The Groundwork was incorporated and housed near the Clinton campaign headquarters to work on her voter-targeting effort.
John, I wanted to add my personal thanks, too. Mark can be a demanding and inquisitive student, and he was both impressed and grateful for your time and candor. He’s begun a challenging journey to direct his wealth to have an impact as great as Facebook and your ideas and perspectives really moved his thinking. I know he was focused on the kinds of structures he should put together, but now I suspect he’ll be paying more attention to the types of people he needs — policy entrepreneurs and strategists — as he thinks about next steps. Any and all suggestions are welcome among folks you know or have worked with.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out if there are things we can do to be helpful in you and your work — whether at CAP or elsewhere.
Have a great weekend,

I enjoyed spending time with you yesterday and our conversation gave me a lot to think about.
Thanks for sharing your experiences with CAP and some of the choices you made as you put the organization together. I hope it’s okay if I reach out as my thinking develops to get your ideas and reactions. If there are any other folks you think I should talk to, please let me know.
Thanks again. I look forward to continuing our conversation.
Yeah, Google and Facebook sure are working for Russia. This is SOOOOOO wrong for this woman, her DNC flunkies, her neo-liberal and -con owners, to be lining us up for another war when we can't even score a draw with the ones we've got going now. WWII was our last big 'victory' and we had LOTS of help with that one. We are causing an international incident with dangerous ratifications in more ways than one. This is obscene.
But REGARDLESS, HERE COMES THE TAKE-OVER OF THE INTERNET.. Here is where we really start to lose our freedom to communicate without fear of governmental interference and censorship. And like the rest of the worst programs and legislation that TPTB have needed passed to destroy the social safety net and to enact laws to punish minorities and the poor (welfare reform, crime and harsher drug sentencing, NAFTA, repeal of Glass Stegall by the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act - GLBA) it took a Turd Way 'New' Democrat to get the job done. The Dims are trying to gaslight the populace by spreading false and dangerous lies. With the Clinton Creature's help every slimey inch of the way. Sometimes I wonder if Hillbillary resents Obama because he took even more away from us than they did. By that I mean our kids expectation of having a better life than we did, take away our right to privacy, and ensuring that kids born since bush/Cheney have never lived through a day where this country wasn't involved in a military action somewhere on the planet.
Someone really needs to tell this woman to STFU.
