Pepsi,
are you one of the last viewers of CNN?
there's no one like you left.

Pepsi complains when we debunk his crap with "alternative" sources, but he seems to rely on already proven fake news sources that say what he likes to hear even if it isn't necessarily truthful.
All truth passes through three stages:
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

I repeat: I DO NOT HAVE OBAMACARE!!!!!!!!

Second, Donald Trump's taxes BEFORE he became President are of no consequence to his current Presidency. The new tax plan only affects 2017 and 2018, so how could anything he filed before that have anything to do with this??

Note:  Putting a word in CAPS does not lend your argument and more STATURE.   ::)
I just explained it to you and it went right over your southern cracker head.  Conflict of interest has no statute of limitations.  If Trump was getting income from sources years ago which he is now favoring through bills which he signs, that is conflict of interest. 

You are the constitutional expert around here.  Have you heard of the emoluments clause?  It prohibits Trump-owned businesses from accepting payments from foreign governments.  We need to know what those businesses are and if they received money from foreign governments.  That's illegal.  Any responsible voter should be interested in Trump's business interests.  It's called "democracy."    ::)

There are gobs of derogatory anythings about Trump.  He cheated on his wife with a porn star and bribed her to keep quiet.  He's a failure at marriage with 2 divorces.  He's on tape using vulgarity.  He's supported by the Ku Klux Klan.  He settled a massive fraud suit and paid a fine.  He stiffed contractors.  How would you feel if your daughter had paid $10,000 to attend Trump University and got ripped off?  It happened but that didn't bother you because it wasn't your kid who was cheated, stolen from.

Why should the ditch pig care? Who cares about the ditch pig? I sure don't.

That list is not bullshit.

And your Liberal crap sites push nonsense that you push as truth, but isn't.

I'm curious. Where did you get the meme about Soros and Snopes? Someone (hint: probably not "Liberals") tricked you into believing nonsense, then you came here and pushed it as truth (apparently tricking others, as well)...but it isn't true, at all. How do you feel about being tricked like that?

George Soros practically owns every Democrat in this country including Hillary and Bill Clinton. His ultimate goal is to destroy the US., by creating as much chaos as he can pay for. How do you feel about being tricked like that?

I'm not a Democrat and I don't think much about George Soros.

So it doesn't bother you, at all... (?)

I think someone tricked you into believing photos were of someone they are not, and statements that are not true.

And then you posted this:

You know that YOU fell for a fake meme and re-posted it as truth, right?

No. I've never been tricked into re-posting a fake meme as truth in one forum while accusing someone else of basically the same thing in another forum.

Here again, I thought (as I have seen suggested) that their motive was to simply disrupt. Like I said, all over the board.

Were they successful? If so, should that be considered an attack on our democracy? Are they still doing it and will they be successful again? Should they be punished and/or prevented from doing it again? Who is responsible, today, for acknowledging the situation and for preventing it from happening again?

That's a lot of questions.

I doubt their effect was even measurable.

In regards to your other questions,.............I have no way of quantifying the amount of outside influences, from how many outside sources there are and to what degree they are successful. I doubt the United States government possesses the resources to determine and prosecute that. One would think this was a new phenomenon. Governments constantly try to put their fingerprints on the internal affairs of others.

It is only now an issue because of the last elections outcome. IOW it's just a political pawn to be played.
