    • Assassination Works Only Under Two Circumstances
      For years, decades even, America has had a policy of assassination. Americans believe that if you kill the leaders, you kill an organization. This is delusional.

Trump on Election Fraud. Message: He Cares 

BiFF is on it: 

Capitulating today to public demands for clarity regarding Russian interference with the 2016 elections, President Donald Trump created a panel to investigate fraudulent Russian voting during his campaign against Hillary Clinton. 
Trump commissioned the panel by executive order, to be headed by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, and co-chaired by VP Mike Pence. Trump denied that Kobach and Pence’s strong ties to alt-right, extreme racist, white nationalist, and homophobic groups would in any way preclude their objectivity in prosecuting the case against Russians infiltrating the US or Ukraine to vote against the Republican party.

 “Kobach and Pence’s strong ties to alt-right, extreme racist, white nationalist, and homophobic groups will in no way preclude their objectivity in prosecuting the case against Russians infiltrating the US or Ukraine to vote against the Republican party,” said Trump.

“A photo ID is just crucial to stopping this,” tweeted Trump. “I mean, even I know 8.7% of the people from Georgia are really from Russia. And 10.7% are muslims! And they ALL voted for Hillary! We must stop this!!!”

The Confluence apple-ogizes for any spreading of fake news and alternative facts. The correct percentage of ethnic Russians in Georgia is 6.3% as of the 1989 census, the most recent year for which data could be found on wikipedia.
