Good Luck Getting Parler, Bullshitters.

She's not completely wrong.  Social media injected steroids into the low information part of society you like to swim with.  Suddenly any Dog could spew anything unchecked.  And since dogs like you simply search for confirmation bias and call it a source, the myths and lies persevere.  Parler has taken the next step and become the defacto space for white nationalism and now calls Russia home.

Okay Bullshitter. That's all the time you get for free. 

Dude....The evidence Schiff is talking about does not exist. The Mueller Report cleared that up for all reasonable people.

I understand that AWS. DDOS Guard is not owned by "The Russians" it's owned by two Russians and is run out of Edenborough so "The Russians" would only have access to the data if the company sent it to them.  

As someone who does this type of work for a living, I would not trust it. I say this as someone who, among other things, has designed globally distributed systems for processing billions of financial transactions per day. Using any 3rd tier provider to provide a service like this, where the potential to intercept sensitive and personal data exists, is risky at best. If the 3rd party has connections to a hostile nation which has been attempting to insert itself into our politics, and the end point is a social network which is dominated by political discussions, that goes from risky to really really stupid. This is the same company which was hacked because it's architecture was so poorly thought out, exposing not just cat pics and cheating spouses, but significantly more sensitive information including copies front and back of drivers licenses for all the members. Given their prior reckless behavior, this move is par for the course, but the course is still stupid and anyone who trusts them with their info is making an enormous mistake.

You probably also believe Putin had compromising materials on Trump and was using it to dictate US policy. Or that Trump was a straight up Russian agent. Or all the other bullshit that went on for years in the Drip drip drip thread.

Were you disappointed to learn that the president of the United States did not collude with Russia?

Prove it. Last I checked, we have an entire report/witnesses.  What you got??

"In evaluating whether evidence about collective action of multiple individuals constituted a crime, we applied the framework of conspiracy law, not the concept of “collusion.” In so doing, the Office recognized that the word “collud[e]” was used in communications with the Acting Attorney General confirming certain aspects of the investigation’s scope and that the term has frequently been invoked in public reporting about the investigation. But collusion is not a specific offense or theory of liability found in the United States Code, nor is it a term of art in federal criminal law."

I was saying that collusion was not an offense except in some anti-trust cases, even before the report.  The bullshitter working that word into the conversation is the same bullshitter working the term "Russia Russia Russia" into the conversation. Bullshitters like straw men.

Although the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the Campaign expected it would benefit 1 U.S. Department of Justice Attorney Work Product // May Contain Material Protected Under Fed.

Dog would like us to pretend this sentence (below) doesn't appear in the report.  And, he can't claim to have missed it, as it is in the paragraph immediately preceding the one containing the partial quote he just provided.

Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.

According to the GOP-led Senate investigation, there was a "breathtaking level of contacts between Trump officials and Russian government operatives that is a very real counterintelligence threat to our elections"

Senate report outlines ‘grave’ Russian threat in 2016 election interference probe - The report details ties between the Trump campaign and Russia but doesn’t find evidence of coordinated scheme

Now, I know you will zero in on a lack of evidence of conspiracy.  That means the President was an unwitting dupe - a "useful idiot". 

I am sure that makes you feel so fucking superior in your continued defense of your status as chief moron here.

They were making clear he was not blameless.  But, they stopped short, citing the DOJ memo.

Why would a man claim a report "totally exonerated" him, when the report clearly states it doesn't?

Parler was information central for the organization of the attack on the Capitol.  Google, Apple and AWS were able to look into the platform and see what the content was, and were no doubt horrified.  In spite of Parler claiming in their TOS that they would moderate the incitement of violence and other illegal activities, Parler was not doing so.  Google, Apple and AWS demanded Parler moderate.  My guess is that Parler refused, so they were deplatformed by AWS and the apps removed by Google and Apple.   Apple, BTW, has said they could come back if they agreed to moderate.  https://www.businessinsider.com/tim-cook-parler-could-return-apple-app-store-moderation-2021-1

My guess is that Parler didn't want to be beholden to Google, Apple and AWS to arbitrate what adequate moderation was.  Essentially, Google, Apple and AWS would be policing Parler.  So, I'm guessing the Parler management decided to look elsewhere for services.  The fact that Parler is still down suggests that they had trouble finding someone who would host - though the persistent rumour is that they are on Epik with DDOS protection from this Russian outfit.  Or perhaps AWS is sending their data to them on a dialup line?

That, of course, does not exonerate the roles that the users of Twitter, FB and Gab, notably the POTUS on Twitter, played in the organization of the attack.  That other shoe is still to drop.

IMHO Parler is done.  Because of the long delay in getting back up and running, Gab has grabbed all their users. In a way that is a good thing, it is convenient to have all the RWNJ's and Q crazies in one place.  Lauren Boebert is big on Gab now, as is Marjorie Greene.

It sounds like you are in favor of the government dictating to companies what they can and cannot do. I suppose you therefore support more government intrusion into the market.

In the name of “free markets” you would Increase governmental authority to dictate business decisions.

There’s a reason we’ve classified you as a dumb bitch. Go do what you’re good for and lick your balls. I think Americans can manage the country quite well without your right wing authoritarian bullshit. Stop spreading lies and denying truth & quit being so obviously hypocritical.

Take it from one who has probably been around the sun a few more times, putting others down may give you a momentary kick but it's not the way forward.

Wrong again.

RTB is telling you a cold hard fact. That’s doing you a favour, not putting you down.

Here’s another, your have a strong victim complex as well.

Putting others down is bad, but lying constantly is OK? Weird set of values Dog has.

Every single person in this country needs to read those 2 articles.  Good stuff..

Were you disappointed to learn that the president of the United States did not collude with Russia?

Were you disappointed to learn that the Mueller report did NOT clear him of collusion with Russia?

In America prosecutors do not clear people, they prosecute people. People are assumed to be innocent and the prosecutors job is to prove guilt.

You probably also believe Putin had compromising materials on Trump and was using it to dictate US policy. Or that Trump was a straight up Russian agent. Or all the other bullshit that went on for years in the Drip drip drip thread.

I'm honestly not convinced that Putin didn't have something on him.  His behavior vis a vis the USSR and its Prezident was far too weird for something not to be there.  More than likely it was $$ rather than some pee tapes.  $$ seems to be the only that motivates the fat orange man.

How do you square that with Trump resumption of arms sales to Putin's neighbors or prompting NATO nations to pony up or to compete with Russia for the European energy market?

I’m sure their private conversations were totally above board.  Go home.  You lost.  I’m sure Trump will welcome you to the his Florida palace.

Trump did not do this, Congress did. Trump fought it and lost, because he's dumber and weaker than McConnell

BLM assholes, Antifa assholes, and now the right wing assholes that assaulted the capitol all use Facebook and Twitter to organize their riots. Now that right wing assholes have used Facebook they are getting some flack for it, most notably on Morning Joe.

 

And right wing assholes like Soreass use Sailing Anarchy.
