The New York Times solves Russia collusion case: Russia spent $100,000 in Facebook Ads to defeat Hillary

Who would have known that all it takes to beat Hillary Clinton, subvert “exceptional” US democracy, and send the entire western mainstream media into “red scare” panic mode was $100,000 in Facebook ads.

The New York Times has uncovered the smoking gun that lead to the rise of Trump, and the fall of “Crooked” Hillary Clinton.

According to the “groundbreaking” reporting of the New York Times…

Providing new evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 election, Facebook disclosed on Wednesday that it had identified more than $100,000 worth of divisive ads on hot-button issues purchased by a shadowy Russian company linked to the Kremlin.

Most of the 3,000 ads did not refer to particular candidates but instead focused on divisive social issues such as race, gay rights, gun control and immigration, according to a post on Facebook by Alex Stamos, that company’s chief security officer. The ads, which ran between June 2015 and May 2017, were linked to some 470 fake accounts and pages the company said it had shut down.

Mr. Stamos wrote that while some of the ads specifically mentioned the two candidates, most focused instead on issues that were polarizing the electorate: “divisive social and political messages across the ideological spectrum — touching on topics from LGBT matters to race issues to immigration to gun rights.”

Buried deep inside the NYT article, is an admission that there is zero evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians…

To date, while news reports have uncovered many meetings and contacts between Trump associates and Russians, there has been no evidence proving collusion in the hacking or other Russian activities.

According to The Gateway Pundit, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election has taken yet another strange turn. This time, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has transferred data on ads “likely” purchased by Russian entities.

Those dastardly “Russian entities” always out to destroy American democracy, and using Zuckerberg’s neo-liberal Facebook to accomplish their evil desires…and doing it on a shoestring budget.

If Hillary Clinton only knew about the power of Facebook ads, she might have directed $101,000 to FB, outspend Russia, and be the Madame President that she so richly deserved.

An internal Facebook investigation has found it is “likely” Russian operatives spent $100,000 on ads with “divisive messages” between June 2015 and May 2017.

blog post on the issue, which was published on Wednesday, said the operation involved 3,000 separate ads over a two-year period and was likely to have been run out of Russia. In addition, Facebook found 470 affiliated fake accounts and pages.

The social media giant has turned over all information about those ads to special counsel Robert Mueller, , a source familiar with the matter said told Reuters on Wednesday. That includes copies of the ads and the identity of the buyers, the source said.

Former FBI Director Mueller is investigating Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin.

$100,000 defeated the $61 million spent by Hillary Clinton’s campaign on ads? In addition, pro-Clinton groups have spent $43 million, bringing the total amount spent on Clinton ads to $104 million.

Awful lot of “likelies” in that Facebook claim —- are they supposed to convince us?

“I believe” “We assess” and now “likely” passes for proof in America?
Then it’s hardly surprising they’re behaving like a bunch of moronic twots round N/Korea way and playing right into Russia’s hands. Bloody hell – it’s pathetic (but fun) to watch.

BTW: “purchased by a shadowy Russian company linked to the Kremlin.”
Did they provide the link – or is this more American “I BELIEVE!”…??

Somebody should tell her, everyone human doesnt like her.

Like the retarded who still cling to tRump, only likewise mentally deranged have delusions about her.

Her narcissism is now as plain as day. Even though she didn’t become the first female POTUS, and now never will. The policies she would have implemented are still being so, but she is still crying, because she isn’t the one signing the executive orders. Obviously tRump saying she is “good people” isn’t enough consolation for her.

Do we have to see her evil, ugly face? Cant you just post articles about her without the pictures?

Just in case you missed it the NYT statement serves as more evidence that Mr Zuckerberg is in cahoots with Hillary if he is willing to divulge information so freely that supports a now defunct narrative. To those that really aren’t getting it (there are only a few) Facebook is your enemy. For all the blow and bluster about protecting peoples free speech, Mr Suckerberg will sell everyone out for the narrative. Get off FB now and start populating GAB.AI and Minds.com.

Stamos also admitted that they purposely went looking for Russian influence. So in essence they needed to validate the time and effort with SOME connection no matter how tenuous or tangential.

Has Facebook disclosed how much money the US government and its scores of puppet NGOs have spent trying to control Russia and its allies since 1990? (Apart from the $5 billion that Victoria Nuland publicly boasted about spending to organize the violent coup d’etat in Ukraine).

I’m done with Russiagate. Actually, I was never on with it due to the fact that I didn’t vote for Hillary due to her her public record. Hear that DNC? What really drove me crazy was her insistence, along with the media’s, that there was Russian collision and influence. Insulting and unreal. I could not believe that this press mantra went on and on. The hacking – never proved – but we all know that most large countries spy on one another. In today’s world they would be stupid not to.
