You think they don't already know that? Hell, they probably knew that before we even knew about Russian interference ourselves.  They probably also know that President Donnie will sell them out in a heartbeat to avoid saying anything critical of Putin or Russia.  Hell, he already has more than once.

I'm honestly expecting a major Republican to be caught coordinating with ISIS or Al Qaeda with an agreement that they'd only kill liberals if they were smuggled into the country.

Yep. And their biggest current talking point, besides deflecting for Trump, is turning American public opinion against Anti-Fascist demonstrators.

This. You'd think more people would have figured this out, but a distressing percentage of Americans seem to have a problem adding 2 and 2 and getting 4, much less anything requiring more complicated cognitive processes.

Either the Republicans have assured Putin that they intend to cripple us as much as possible or Putin simply inferred that from their behavior and public statements and is taking advantage of it. Honestly not sure which I find more plausible at this point.

I think it also served as a remote control for the monitors. I seem to recall him clicking it. Might have been my imagination. By the time we arrived at this point in the movies, I just wanted it to end, or just spend the next 45 minutes with Monica Bellucci.

I think it's some kind of remote control for the video monitors that surround him. Like a stylus, but way cooler because he's in the matrix?

Which leaves me with TWO questions.

First, is the architect actually in the matrix, or outside it, or where exactly are they?

Second, and more important, how do you capitalize matrix? Is it an acronym, or a proper noun, or what?

there is no voter fraud. and the few cases they've found are mostly Republicans. it's just a lie to justify making it harder to vote.

Because ALL Republicans are traitors.
Because ALL Republicans hate America.
Republicans are incapable of understanding facts and reality.  They believe Trump is the messiah and all science is anti-Jeebus.
Their words are only lies.  Their actions are the only truth.

Otherwise, why would they have selected Trump as their choice for POTUS?
Otherwise, why haven't the Republicans impeached Trump?
Otherwise, why would their VP - Pence AKA Sgt Schultz - be so bunched up about God but is willing to be attached to Trump like a human centipede?

Russians are the new heroes in America as they kept Demon Socialist Hillary from turning this country into a liberal hell hole.
With that being said, if a Russian here in the U.S. wants to fark your wife, girlfriend or daughter, you must let them, as they are gods chosen people. (not the Jews)

They don't understand gravity?  Gravity?  That sound you hear is Newton weeping.
