If your a 70 + year old senator from Alaska that’s how it looks.

2017: 60K pace
A presidential spokesperson said that they might have used microwaves to spy on Trump and the left and the MSM are trending that she is a fool for saying this. I am tired of having to take up for Trump and his spokesmen. I don’t like them. Why does the media have to lie about everything? About things they don’t know about? Microwaves have been used in information gathering and so have lasers so these people are mocking her and they didn’t even look it up. What is she supposed to brief you on a secret program so you can freak out on that too?
Facebook is supposed to be protecting the world from fake news but when the fake news comes from CNBC they swallow it hook line and sinker. I was in the military in electronic warfare and I can tell you it is entirely possible and has been done routinely.
Microwave eavesdropping has a long and clandestine history. And there’s an odd connection between music and microwave eavesdropping. Mention the name Leon Theremin and many people will immediately think of the musical instrument bearing his name. Born Lev Sergeyevich Termen, his contributions to the former Soviet Union spanned the history of the Soviet Union from the original Bolshevik Revolution to the collapse of the USSR.
Termen was a mathematics prodigy who was drawn into the emerging field of electronics. Termen came across the basic principle for one of the first electronic musical instruments while working on television. The theremin (Termen called it an “etherophone”) produced music with modulated static. Players used two antennae, one for pitch and one for volume, producing musical tones by waving their hands around the antennae. Skilled musicians reportedly could recreate the sounds of many existing instruments.
On one hand I could care less that some rich person got shafted like we always do but on the other this made no sense to me from a marketing stand point because of course the publicity from her father should make sales go up. I am always perplexed when I see a corporation not acting in its own self interest. It shows me there is some madness in it’s leader ship, so this never made sense to me anyway. So just as predicted the sales are in record territory and a lot of people lied to the public about why they were doing this? Why didn’t they say, “we just don’t like this bitch!” Also the fact that they were going to lose money or it was an economic decision is #fakenews
Ivanka Trump’s eponymous women’s fashion line is reporting record sales figures despite calls for a boycott and controversies surrounding President Trump.“Since the beginning of February, they were some of the best performing weeks in the history of the brand,” Abigail Klem, the president of the Ivanka Trump fashion brand, tells Refinery29 in an interview published Tuesday. “For several different retailers Ivanka Trump was a top performer online, and in some of the categories it was the [brand’s] best performance ever.”The news of a sales surge comes after Nordstrom announced in early February that it would no longer carry the 35-year-old’s clothing and accessories, citing poor product sales. The move caused President Trump to tweet shortly after the announcement that his daughter was being “treated so unfairly” by the luxury department store giant.Also last month, Neiman Marcus stopped carrying the first daughter’s jewelry line on its website, and employees of T.J. Maxx and Marshalls stores were instructed to throw away any signage advertising her wares.The Office of Government Ethics recommended disciplinary action against White House adviser Kellyanne Conway after she urged viewers to “go buy Ivanka’s stuff” during a February interview on “Fox & Friends.”A campaign called Grab Your Wallet, which is critical of the Trump administration, asked shoppers to boycott retailers with any Ivanka or Donald Trump-branded products.
How come its really Anti-American to go on an Anti-Communist crusade in the 50ties when you have no proof but its totally all American legit to go on an Anti-Russian crusade in 2017? You can’t have it both ways. Either its meet, right and salutary or it’s insane but it can’t be both. What’s going on here has no basis in fact. I hear all of the time that Trump is saying things with out providing evidence. Well where is the evidence of Russian hacking? That paper the DOJ put out is fact free and full of disclaimers in more than one part of that paper. Where are the transcripts of the calls?
McCarthyism is the practice of making accusations of subversion or treason without proper regard for evidence. Dictionary.com provides the following additional definition: the practice of making unfair allegations or using unfair investigative techniques, especially in order to restrict dissent or political criticism.
This Russian freak out fake news is getting old. Until today’s research, showed that they did this in the 60ties too. They claimed Richard Nixon was soft on Russia and there was a missile gap. Billions in 1960 dollars were spent on more military and more atomic weapons. This helped Kennedy to victory and a campaign was run to shape public opinion so that Eisenhower was viewed as a silly old irrelevant man. His warnings about the military industrial complex went unheeded and that was costly in both blood and treasure.
