Re: Le Pen France elections your thoughts

Thread needs a poll so we can vote on what method Putin will use to take out Macron.

Something a little stronger than information warfare in his case. This requires straight up state decapitation.

France confirms Russians not behind Macron hack.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.was...4b1_story.html

Score one more for reason and critical thinking. The most likely explanation continues to be that Macron campaign leaked their own non-defamatory stuff.

None of the bolded has been confirmed, sorry.

There's a small section in the beginning saying one French intelligence officer couldn't confirm for sure it was Russia because of the simplicity of the hacking. The rest is just paragraph after paragraph of Putin defending the Kremlin. Who's saying it was another country or France itself? Seems like you just made that up or got it from some conspiratorial site.

I even Googled for other sources. But maybe I suck at reading and internets, who knows...

Wink Re: Le Pen France elections your thoughts

Maybe you are bad at reading. I don't know.

From a Time.com article: the government cyber defense agency in France, known as ANSSI, has concluded there is no evidence the Russian hacking group APT28 was involved in the Macron emails leak. On the contrary, the operation was so lacking in sophistication, their conclusion is that any person in any country could have been behind the attack.

As I said a few pages back, considering the timing of the email release, the lack of defamatory information disclosed in the release, the swiftness with which the Macron campaign confirmed the emails were legit (as opposed to the way other hacking victims have responded to such leaks), and other available details, the most likely explanation, using simple common sense, is that the Macron campaign leaked non-defamatory information from their own campaign.

Or you can just keep waving your arms around and claiming the bogeyman is responsible for everything.

Your response still doesn't confirm anything. It just has more words waving arms about my arm waving.

Looks like we gonna talk a lot about Macron for the next 5 years. Any french here wants to create a Europe + China thread to discuss actual leaders of the free world? I'll provide the memes.

sorry to say it but we're just going back to ignoring france the next 5 years. this thread was mostly about hoping le pen didnt blow up europe.

Re: Le Pen France elections your thoughts

Macron's party is now projected to win up to 2/3 of the seats in the legislative elections next 2 sundays...that's just astonishing, the party was founded 14 months ago!

The voting system totally plays into his party's hands, they will get about 30% in the 1st round, which is less than the new president's party usually gets, but will totally crush the 2nd round because they're so many voter's 2nd choice.

Re: Le Pen France elections your thoughts

yup, this is DEMOCRACY. In France, the fith republic is built to say no to one party to avoid worst case scenario. Alliances are a major part of the system and this is why the far right won't win for a very long time.
