    Green Party's Jill Stein targeted by Russia probe

    Wow. This vilification of all things Russian needs to stop. It's gotten out of control. Take a look at this:

    McCarthy-Style Targeting of Jill Stein Proves Democrats Have Truly Lost The Plot

    ThinkProgress, which bills itself as a “progressive” platform has devoted an article to Stein’s “pro-Kremlin talking points” and detailed a list of her “odd views” — some of which include not loving NATO, not hating Julian Assange, not hating RT and not hating Russia in general. Those, of course, are all big no-nos if you want to avoid a congressional investigation these days.
    That’s the kind of farcical and unserious coverage third-party candidates receive in the US — and the journalists who do the mocking, treating candidates like Stein as an amusing sideshow, are very often the same journalists who pretend to care deeply about the lack of fair coverage which tiny opposition movements receive in countries like Russia.

    This is a witch hunt. It is neo-McCarthyism, plain and simple. The people who are outright calling Stein a Russian agent are making a complete mockery of themselves and of the American political process — and they genuinely appear to have no idea. One almost feels a sense of second-hand embarrassment for them. With the frenzy around Jill Stein, they have managed to spin a scandal out of nothing, because, for lack of a better word, they’re butthurt that their candidate didn’t win.
    I feel like what Dave Fagan said to me is more relevant here:

    It's really simple. The Military Industrial Corporate Complex is the biggest business in the Nation. It dwarfs the Auto Industry. The MIC has industries in every state and politicians are always trying to keep Military Offense contracts flowing in their jurisdictions. First, you need to create a demand for the products. That'd be marketing. Create chaos, instability, insurrection, revolution and wars wherever possible. Manufacture bogeymen as "devils in the flesh," or in the MSM a/k/a Putin/Russia, China/Xi, etc. That creates more demand for weapons. Without wars, you don't have replacement orders, so concentrate on those wars. Just Business, don't ya' know? "The business of America is business." "War is good business, and business is good." Those are not homilies, but credos. That's what America is about, but the taxpayers don't know it, and don't want to believe it, because it is un-American. Could it's success be caused by a manipulable MSM that supports the war-making agenda? Of course, only five owners. That's where mind bending begins and ends. Written and managed by the CIA, etc. Now, we have a retrosaur president that thinks if the laws are adjusted to the successful (for Corporations) early 1900s without regulation and no acknowledgement of long term liability, then we will be great again. The rich will get richer and if the "business of America is business," then Trump is correct and willing to sacrifice the Planet to prove it. Keeeerissst, we need help.
    Essentially, we have manufactured enemies because it's business. It may be political business or economic business, but it's business all the same.

    Also, I didn't know where else to put this. I assume that news that isn't covered in the mainstream media goes here, right? Sorry, still new to this whole thing.

    Two of the major third parties in our country have been in bed with the Russians for years. Libertarians and The Green Party. This is not a secret but only to their blind followers.
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    I'm not a follower of either and even I know that they're innocent.

    There are many issues you can attack Trump on. Russia isn't one of them.
