Inside Russia’s Intentionally Bizarre Bid To Sabotage The 2016 Election

How do you run a political campaign that successfully tips the scale in the favor of your candidate? Run lots of advertisements, ones that portray your candidate in a legitimately human light, establish his or her stance on vital issues and projects them as a trustworthy potential leader of the nation. From time to time, a good ol’ smear campaign that cries foul on your opponents weaknesses is also helpful. At least, that’s what the experts tell me. Take one look at some of the advertisements purchased by the Russian propaganda machine on platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Google to sabotage the presidential race, however, and you will see just how different they are from any successful political campaign any candidate in this democracy has ever run.

“With our hands stuck to our smartphones and eyes to the screen, social media platforms have evolved as the most efficient modern method to gain visibility. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram openly boast their ability to target specific interest groups within the population who are most likely to engage with and be influenced by the campaign. Political memes are funny and relatable, and they subtly input ideas into people’s heads with great efficiency. Due to the massive reach of these platforms and their content delivery techniques, it is easy to reach and influence millions of people every day via paid campaigns.” – Mayur Patil, Co-Founder at Furor Media

There is a picture of Jesus Christ arm-wrestling an #ImWithHer Satan in an attempt to prevent Hillary Clinton from winning the election. There is a meme about Bernie Sanders calling out the Clinton Foundation on corruption charges. There is an advertisement for a fake event being held in an attempt to allow Texas to secede from the United States. And of course, the weirdest of them all, a campaign promoting a coloring book of Bernie Sanders in hilarious muscular poses as an LGBT superhero. Some of these ads performed poorly, while others boasted click-through rates that were abnormally high and oddly successful. One thing that always remained the same, however, is just how weird these advertisements were. If this was an attempt to hack a democratic election, it was abnormally bizarre.

It’s easy to dismiss these campaigns as nothing more than a joke, but the very fact that they reached millions of viewers across the nation proves just how effective they were. Experts, however, say that the fact that these campaigns were so abnormal and funny was exactly the reason why they were so successful. In a new report released by the Harvard University’s Shorenstein Center, authors James Carey and Claire Wardle tell us that the best way to reach a huge audience on a social media platform is to involve as much drama as possible. According to these researchers, advertisements purchased by the foreign propaganda machine were targeted towards a narrow strip of swing voters who weren’t sure which way to lean come election time. The advertisements, despite their initial lack of seriousness, helped confirm for these people their predisposed biases and gave them reason enough to pick one among two opposing candidates both of whom they largely disliked. Better Trump than Hillary, that was the motto of this campaign. Donald Trump may not be perfect, but he is still an outsider, and therefore times better than an establishment-loving Hillary Clinton. You keep hammering this idea into someone’s head long enough, and they will eventually give in.

“It’s hard to imagine that $100,000 in Facebook ads, a small army of Twitter bots, and 18 YouTube channels might have tipped the race for Trump. But the 2016 election was also decided by only several tens of thousands of voters in a handful of counties where swing voters were already deeply suspicious of Clinton. Russia’s Facebook campaign was particularly effective because it confirmed pre-existing narratives that certain segments of Trump voters already had about her.” – Maya Kosoff, Vanity Fair

The propaganda machine ran a very sophisticated social media campaign that depended on the human race’s most basic impulses in an attempt to influence their behavior. Hillary Rotten Clinton. Hillary the Satan. Killary with a K. These ideas were repeatedly hammered into people’s heads as a means to manipulate them on a subconscious level. They may not have agreed with these ads when they saw them, but keep encountering them time after time and they’ll eventually form a subconscious idea that anyone is better than Hillary Clinton. And that, my friends, is how a fiercely hated foreign power with no standing in our nation managed to manipulate our democracy and coerce our wills without us even knowing it.

Trump Scraps Possible Formal Meeting With Putin

mikenova shared this story .

President Donald Trump will not meet formally with Russian President Vladimir Putin at an Asia-Pacific summit in Vietnam this week due to a scheduling conflict, the White House said Friday, amid U.S. concerns that the meeting wouldn’t create genuine progress on key issues.

“Are they going to bump into each other and say hello? Certainly possible and likely,” Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters. “But in terms of a scheduled, formal meeting, there’s not one on the calendar and we don’t anticipate that there will be one.”

Any Putin-Trump meeting would be fraught with political complications for Trump, as his campaign and his administration face investigations over ties to the Russian government during the 2016 presidential campaign. Those probes have been heating up in recent weeks, with charges filed against Trump’s former campaign manager and a foreign policy campaign aide.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Bloomberg that consultations are continuing.

“There is no final understanding yet,” he said.

The Kremlin had announced that both sides were working on a suitable time and format for a meeting when both men are in Vietnam, without specifying if it’d be a formal sit-down. But U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had downplayed the possibility in an interview on his flight from China to Vietnam, saying there was no point meeting if there wasn’t the likelihood they’d make progress on a number of issues.

North Korea

The news came a day after Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping over many of the same questions he would have discussed with Putin, notably how to rein in North Korea’s nuclear ambitions.

Xi had offered Trump few concrete proposals and little beyond well-worn phrases about the importance of denuclearizing the Korean peninsula. Both Russia and China oppose moves that would cause Kim Jong Un’s regime to collapse, and have called on both North Korea and the U.S. to lower tensions and start talks.

While the Kremlin had said it expected the meeting to happen, and Trump himself told reporters aboard Air Force One that a sit-down was likely, Tillerson insisted Thursday the meeting would only occur if there was “sufficient substance” to necessitate gathering.

“We’d like to know if the two heads of state are going to meet there’s something useful to point to,” Tillerson told reporters in Beijing. He insisted there had not been an agreement for a formal meeting, but said it could be useful if concrete progress on the “significant conversations underway” between the U.S. and Russia on a range of foreign policy issues could be accomplished.

Ross Revelations

That could include efforts on North Korea, as well as the ongoing crises in Syria and Ukraine.

Any meeting between Trump and Putin could carry a political cost for the U.S. president. Recent weeks have featured a flood of difficult stories for the White House, including revelations earlier this week in the New York Times that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross had failed to disclose business ties to Putin associates.

Ross told Bloomberg Television that he will “probably not” maintain his stake, worth up to $10 million, in shipping company Navigator Holdings Ltd., whose clients include a Russian energy company owned partially by Putin’s son-in-law as well as an oligarch who has been sanctioned by the U.S. government.

“I’ve been actually selling it anyway, but that isn’t because of this,” Ross said Monday.

Collusion Investigation

A meeting would also follow the decision by Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos to plead guilty last week to lying to the FBI about his attempts to organize a meeting between campaign staff and Russian officials. The investigation into Russian interference in the election has also already ensnared Paul Manafort, the president’s former campaign chairman, who is accused of crimes stemming from his lobbying and consulting work for pro-Russian interests in Ukraine.

Critics of the U.S. president accuse the White House of slow-walking new sanctions against Russia imposed by Congress, which wanted to signal its displeasure with Russian interference in the 2016 election. This week top U.S. technology companies, including Facebook Inc.Twitter Inc., and Google Inc.disclosed that Russia had distributed mass propaganda over their social media networks during the election.

Peskov, the Kremlin spokesman, said Friday it was “hard to overestimate the importance and significance of any contact between the president of Russia and the United States for all international matters.”

Во Вьетнаме завершился саммит АТЭС Президент России

mikenova shared this story .

Вопрос: Одной из интриг прошедшего саммита стали Ваши возможные переговоры с господином Трампом. Насколько я понимаю, Вам всё‑таки удалось поговорить, что называется, «на ногах». Расскажите, пожалуйста, о чём и, на Ваш взгляд, почему всё‑таки не удалось организовать такую полноценную встречу, полноформатные переговоры?

В.Путин: Что касается отдельной встречи. Во‑первых, это было связано с графиком работы господина Трампа, моим графиком и определёнными формальностями протокола, с которыми нашим командам справиться, к сожалению, не удалось. Но они будут наказаны за это.

Вместе с тем ничего страшного не произошло, мы поговорили в ходе сегодняшнего заседания, пообщались, и, в общем и целом, всё, что хотели, мы обсудили. В основном‑то говорили о чём?

Говорили о том, что обсуждалось на самом саммите АТЭС, говорили о том, как использовать те новые возможности, которые предоставляет цифровая экономика для развития экономических связей. И вы знаете, мы ещё согласовали совместное заявление по борьбе с терроризмом в Сирии.

В этом смысле, имея в виду и первое, и второе, можно сказать, что работа на полях АТЭС была полезной и успешной, потому что не так просто было выйти на заявление по Сирии. Наши эксперты работали над этим заявлением в преддверии саммита, и уже вчера началась доработка этого документа.

Министры иностранных дел господин Лавров и господин Тиллерсон работали над теми вопросами, которые возникли уже после того, как этот текст был предложен экспертами, и сегодня только что мы с Президентом Соединённых Штатов этот документ согласовали. Считаю его важным, потому что он подчёркивает некоторые абсолютно принципиальные вещи.

Во‑первых, продолжение борьбы с терроризмом. Это чрезвычайно важно и для Соединённых Штатов, особенно в свете последних трагических событий, которые там произошли, связанные с террористическими вылазками. Это важно для нас, для страны, которая давно сталкивается с этой проблемой. И это важно для всего международного сообщества. Борьба с терроризмом будет продолжена, причём совместными усилиями.

Что касается Сирии: чрезвычайно важным считаю, что мы подтвердили территориальную целостность и суверенитет страны. Мы договорились о том, что будем после завершения борьбы с террором, ликвидации террористической угрозы на этой территории двигаться по пути политического урегулирования под эгидой Организации Объединённых Наций. Детали этого заявления вы можете посмотреть. Оно, по‑моему, уже опубликовано.

Вопрос: Владимир Владимирович, как Вы оцениваете так называемые антироссийские расследования, которые, кажется, только набирают силу в Соединённых Штатах? Министры американского правительства, их уже обвиняют в коррупционных связях с Россией, и вроде бы члены предвыборного штаба Дональда Трампа встречались с Вашей вроде бы племянницей. Как Вы оцениваете эту ситуацию? Это первый вопрос.

И второй вопрос: Владимир Владимирович, когда уже наконец? Мы уже устали ждать!

В.Путин: Вторую часть Вашего вопроса пока оставлю без ответа. Время придёт, мы поговорим на эту тему.

Что касается первой части, то я уже многократно высказывался на этот счёт. Считаю, что всё, что связано с российским так называемым «досье» в Соединённых Штатах, на сегодняшний день – это проявление продолжающейся внутриполитической борьбы.

Вот те конкретные вещи, о которых Вы сказали, конечно, они мне известны, хотя о каких‑то связях моих родственников с представителями Администрации или с какими‑то официальными лицами – я об этом узнал только вчера от господина Пескова. Я не знаю об этом ничего, ровным счётом вообще ничего. По‑моему, это всё бредни какие‑то.

По поводу министра торговли, по‑моему, речь идёт о министре торговли Соединённых Штатов. Он бизнесом раньше занимался, был акционером или владельцем шиппинговой компании, причём мирового уровня, заключал контракты с отправителями грузов по всему миру, может быть, и с российскими. Но это не больше чем бизнес.

Никакого отношения к политике это никогда не имело и не имеет. Я даже фамилии его не знаю, если по‑честному, только недавно, честно говоря, услышал. Поэтому здесь нечего расследовать. Но при желании можно, конечно, поковыряться в поисках каких‑то сенсаций. Их там нет, никаких сенсаций нет.

Что касается господина Манафорта, то его тоже как‑то связывают с Россией. Единственная связь с Россией – это то, что он, будучи руководителем и, наверное, владельцем, даже не знаю, американского пиаровского агентства, заключал контракты и тоже как бизнесмен, работающий в этой сфере, работал с Украиной, в том числе с бывшим президентом Януковичем.

Но какое это отношение имеет к России, я не понимаю. Никакого. Ровным счётом ничего здесь нет, просто пустая болтовня и желание использовать любую зацепку для борьбы с действующим Президентом США. Но это, повторяю, не наше дело, пускай они сами разбираются.

Smiles and snaps: Trump and Putin’s delicate diplomatic dance

mikenova shared this story .

DANANG, Vietnam — Talks between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, a much-anticipated box office event at an Asia-Pacific summit, were up in the air Saturday as the leaders swapped warm greetings in Vietnam but kept the world guessing on a formal meeting.

The question of whether the US and Russian leaders will hold official discussions on the sidelines of the APEC summit in the resort city of Danang has added a layer of diplomatic intrigue to an event dominated by trade discussions.

Trump’s relationship with Moscow has haunted the first year of his presidency, with key former aides under a US investigation for alleged collaboration with the Kremlin.

Overly amicable talks between Trump and Putin would be an awkward sell for the White House as it denies any wrongdoing.

Instead a delicate diplomatic dance has been on show, giving glimpses of a warm relationship but no substantive talks.

The two men have met in Danang three times since late Friday, when they posed for a photo side by side in loose-fitting blue shirts custom made for the summit.

They again warmly shook hands on Saturday morning as leaders sat down for talks and then briefly chatted as they walked together to a podium for a “family photo” of attendees.

Moscow’s top diplomat Sergei Lavrov also had a short meeting with his US counterpart Rex Tillerson.

Asked to give details on their talks, Lavrov glibly replied “I can, but I wouldn’t.”

Russia has denied allegations of interfering in the US election last year, won by Trump in a shock victory.

Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and an associate are under house arrest on charges including conspiracy to launder money, linked to the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into allegations that the campaign colluded with Russia.

Yet the US leader also wants Russian support for his efforts to isolate North Korea in a bid to restrain its nuclear ambitions.

Report: Stephen Millers resignation may be imminent

mikenova shared this story from Palmer Report.

Two days ago we got word that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had quietly interviewed Donald Trump’s White House senior adviser Stephen Miller before the start of the Asia trip. Yesterday we got word that Miller was the unnamed “senior policy adviser” mentioned in the confession of Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Now comes a report that Stephen Miller’s resignation may be imminent.

First came the surprising word on Thursday from CNN that Mueller had interviewed Miller at least a week earlier. This was notable because the media had previously believed that Mueller’s first interview with a current Trump White House senior adviser would be with Hope Hicks, and that it would take place after the Asia trip. This prompted Palmer Report to point out that Mueller clearly knew something about Miller the the rest of us didn’t, though it wasn’t yet clear what it was (link). Then came the even more surprising revelation on Friday from the New York Times that Miller was aware of at least portions of Papadopoulos’ Russian conspiracy plot at the time (link). Now here comes the stunning part.

Late on Friday night, Democratic Coalition co-founder and MSNBC guest commentator Scott Dworkin tweeted that “3 different GOPers told me tonight that we should expect Stephen Miller to resign next week, possibly as early as tomorrow” (link). Donald Trump tweeted a photo of himself and Miller aboard Air Force One earlier this week, confirming that Miller is on the Asia trip. This would mean that Miller could resign before the trip is even finished.

One possible explanation for this could be that Trump didn’t know Stephen Miller had met with Robert Mueller, and now that it’s surfaced in the media, things have immediately gone sour between the two of them. There are other possible explanations. Now we wait to see what happens next.

The post Report: Stephen Miller’s resignation may be imminent appeared first on Palmer Report.
