"David Sanger: You’ve seen several of those countries come under cyberattack, things that are short of war, clearly appear to be coming from Russia.
Donald Trump: Well, we’re under cyberattack.
Sanger: We’re under regular cyberattack. Would you use cyberweapons before you used military force?
Trump: Cyber is absolutely a thing of the future and the present. Look, we’re under cyberattack, forget about them. And we don’t even know where it’s coming from.
Sanger: Some days we do, and some days we don’t.
Trump: Because we’re obsolete. Right now, Russia and China in particular and other places.
Sanger: Would you support the United States’ not only developing as we are but fielding cyberweapons as an alternative?
Trump: Yes. I am a fan of the future, and cyber is the future.
He wants to arm our pipes.

Republican National Convention 2016: Fact-Checking Donald Trump and Other Speakers | ABC News
Donald Trump took to the stage at the Republican National Convention Thursday night and offered a stinging indictment of his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton as well as the legacy of the Obama administration.
He made several claims about both, so ABC News decided to fact-check them, as well as the claims made by other speakers on prior days of the convention.

Trump the perv, tries to kiss a man who doesn't want to, hugs his daughters pelvis, stiff arms his lovely wife.
It's all about dominance.
This is the best dissection of the danger of Trump.
"There were four categories of speakers. First, the Trump family members, including poor wife Melania, whose speechwriters pushed her into a media buzz saw on opening night.
Then, there were even a few Republican politicians who seemed to want to be there voluntarily, people like crazed Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, who came off like a shaved and slightly angrier version of Yosemite Sam. Ex-candidate Ben Carson emerged from a grain-storage chamber somewhere to connect Hillary Clinton to Lucifer and say things about transgender people so outrageous that even Orrin Hatch rushed to their defense.
The third group consisted of Republican officials who had no choice but to be there. People like Republican Party chief Reince Priebus and House Majority Leader Paul Ryan rarely spoke Trump's name and seemed pained throughout, aware they might spend eternity giving each other back rubs in hell as punishment for participating in this event.
The rest were basically personal friends who owed him a favor."
Hitler rose to power on journalists fluff pieces. He looked warm and fuzzy
"They were able to engineer a complete transformation of Hitler’s public persona,... They accomplished this by focusing on his private life — by showing him playing with his dogs and with children, and at home in architectural spaces designed to evoke a feeling of warmth. By the end of the 1930s, news stories around the world described him as a caring, gentle individual with great taste in home décor.”
“It was dangerous because it made him likeable,” Stratigakos said. “After reading these stories, people would feel like they knew the ‘true’ Hitler, the private man behind the Führer mask, and that maybe this person was not as bad as all of the news coming out of Europe seemed to suggest.”
“The 1930s marked the rise of celebrity culture, in the era of talking movies, radio and new lifestyle magazines,” Stratigakos said. “People developed a strong desire to know what the private person was like behind the public facade. Hitler’s propagandists took advantage of the new celebrity culture and even helped to shape it.”
Donald Trump To Do A Reddit AMA On Wednesday
Republican nominee Donald Trump will host an "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) session on Reddit this Wednesday. The post will go live at 6:30 p.m. and Trump will begin answering questions at 7:00 p.m. The AMA will be hosted on the subreddit r/The_Donald, a pro-Trump forum which has done AMAs with other noteworthy Trump supporters.
Reddit's userbase generally skews to the left, but there are a number of pro-Trump subreddits. It will be interesting to see if this AMA goes well or is "hijacked" by people who do not support Trump.

This Isn’t the First Time Donald Trump Has Asked Hackers for Help Taking Down His Enemies
Donald Trump on Wednesday urged Russia to hack Hillary Clinton’s emails, setting off howls of outrage from across the political spectrum for actually soliciting foreign espionage on his opponent. “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Trump said.
But it’s not the first time he has endorsed hacking to uncover information that he wants. Trump previously asked for hackers’ help in his obsessive quest to prove that President Barack Obama was not born in the U.S.:

Washington Post reporter barred, patted down by police, at rally for Trump running mate
By Paul Farhi, The Washington Post, July 28, 2016
Donald Trump’s campaign has denied press credentials to a number of disfavored media organizations, including The Washington Post, but on Wednesday, the campaign of his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, went even further.
At Pence’s first public event since he was introduced as the Republican vice-presidential candidate two weeks ago, a Post reporter was barred from entering the venue after security staffers summoned local police to pat him down in a search for his cellphone.
Pence’s campaign expressed embarrassment and regret about the episode, which an official blamed on overzealous campaign volunteers.
Post reporter Jose A. DelReal sought to cover Pence’s rally at the Waukesha County Exposition Center outside Milwaukee, but he was turned down for a credential beforehand by volunteers at a press check-in table.
DelReal then tried to enter via the general-admission line, as Post reporters have done without incident since Trump last month banned the newspaper from his events. He was stopped there by a private security official who told him he couldn’t enter the building with his laptop and cellphone. When DelReal asked whether others attending the rally could enter with their cellphones, he said the unidentified official replied, “Not if they work for The Washington Post.”
After placing his computer and phone in his car, DelReal returned to the line and was detained again by security personnel, who summoned two county sheriff’s deputies. The officers patted down DelReal’s legs and torso, seeking his phone, the reporter said.
When the officers — whom DelReal identified as Deputy John Lappley and Capt. Michelle Larsuel — verified that he wasn’t carrying a phone, the reporter asked to be admitted. The security person declined. “He said, ‘I don’t want you here. You have to go,’ ” DelReal said.
The security person wouldn’t give his name when DelReal asked him to identify himself. He also denied DelReal’s request to speak to a campaign press representative as he escorted the journalist out.
Officials of the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department were unavailable for comment Wednesday night.
Trump has banned nearly a dozen news organizations whose coverage has displeased him, but reporters have generally been able to cover his events by going through general admission lines.
The incident involving DelReal marks another in a series of run-ins between the news media and the campaign.

Both sides have called for a limit to security briefings. Paul Ryan said Hillary couldn't keep the info secret and Harry Reid says Trump can't keep a secret.
They are right. And yet the odds are good that HRC will become our next president. I'd love to know just how much dirt the Russians already have on her. That 3 am call will be Putin reminding her of the dirt he has, and to do as he says or else...
A vote for Hillary might very well be a vote for Putin.
