You have a bad memory and a bad google.

This is just going around in circles.

Not my problem.

Also you should get off the high and mighty bus.
Lets avoid the bus and the circles. Just post the links to support your statements.

You won't. You'll play the victim. You'll blame me. The circle continues, and you'll blame me for it.

They have all been posted many times, look em up.

Quite frankly and it pains me to say it, but your kind are not worth the effort.

being able to donate to platforms which can influence the election.
The US political system is funded by donations. Many news outlets ther run corporate donation tallies right next to polling results. Democracy for sale.

Trump took it a step further by giving positions to said donor e.g. Betsy DeVos

Why is there anything wrong with this?

There might come a time when nations will sell a corporate seat in the senate for $200B to knock down debt and give the big influence businesses transparency for their goals. It would be a scary path to start down if we have 3 x Corporate Senators in the Upper House, for an injection of $600B.
If you find that scary how scary do you find the fact that Trump has various corporate donors on his cabinet? Not the senate but the actual cabinet responsible for major portfolios.

It is an interesting study in group psychology.

Posters emotionally invested in conspiracy nonsense such as Russiagate ansd Ukrainegate automatically turn off conspiracy theories from the opposite end of the political spectrum, when they are essentially saying the same thing ie. Very rich bloke is corrupt.

They are comfortable with one conspiracy theory, but two is a stretch, to the point it openly annoys them.

P.S. Sorry, collusion :rolleyes:
Cos russiagate and ukraine are not conspiracies. There are so many sources verifying them they should be considered fact until new evidence changes the story.

What even is the conspiracy with soros? Man donates money to political causes. That happens all over the western world. I would prefer it didnt but it does. What is the conspiracy and why is it actually a bad thing? Is it just cos he gives money to the wrong side?

It's pretty gross. When I saw a former state premier as the lobbying spokesperson for an industry group a couple of weeks ago it also greatly worried me.

Then again, there is a reason US Presidents earning $400,000 a year end up multimillionaires by the end of it. I suspect there is a fair bit of quid pro quo going on where the payback is a years worth of president money to talk for an hour at the company's motivational executive meeting.

Soros seeks to destroy any sort Nationalism and National identity, he wants a global Government and complete open borders.

He cant do it without immigration.

The best way to change a countries culture and identity is through mass immigration, i believe he seeks to destroy individual countries sovereignty, thats whty he sponsors anything to destroy Western Civilization, the family unit and cultural hegemony.

Here is how he does it in Italy, basically the same for every Western country.View attachment 788568
So he is actually using money for a good cause.

Ukraine was the Clinton foundation donor

Soros was the Presidential race donor

A Russian Bank gave Bill 500k for a speech - what a speech that must have been, surprisingly right after Hillary OKed the sale of Uranium to Russia.

Its not rocket science big fella

keep up.

But it is Trump colluding though!
So both hillary and trump go to prison.

Im pretty ok with that.

"they were far less concerted or centrally directed than Russia’s alleged hacking and dissemination of Democratic emails. "

Time to face reality.

Again what about soros is actually a conspiracy?
He has to be investigated first before we can establish conspiracy.

Until it can be established there was conspiracy, it is a conspiracy theory. The law says beyond a reasonable doubt.

Innocent until proven guilty, but we will be watching him.

How much influence does $3000 of Facebook ads buy you?
I'm so bored of this 'argument'.



We're convinced that we are all being controlled by the mainstream media. But we suddenly don't believe that advertising works???


Pay $1000 to put an add on during MKR (never seen it). You think that's all that was spent?
Do you think they spent a ton of money on research, working out how to reach the target audience, who to target, how to make the add influential etc etc etc... And THEN they paid to put in on TV.

Suddenly we say "They only spent $1000 on advertising".
