cases ranging from bribery, to mismanagement of aid funds for purchasing food, to embezzlement, to driving expensive cars while common people suffer under wartime conditions.

A top presidential adviser and four deputy ministers - among these two defense officials, along with five regional governors were forced out of their posts. And among the regional governors to step down included officials overseeing regions which have seen intense fighting, including the Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions, where Russian forces have lately reported gains.

WHO could have seen THIS happening? i mean, other than ANY ONE with eyes, that is

That picture should be in the dictionary next to the word "austere".

Even a mild January in Wisconsin is a hard master.

At Harvard, Schumpeter claimed that he had set himself three goals: to be the greatest economist in the world, to be the best horseman in all of Austria, and the greatest lover in all of Vienna. He did two of them.

Speaking of horsemanship, In Harmony (2015) (En Equilibre) is pretty good. Cécile de France. An injured equestrian stuntman develops a bond with his insurance agent.

A study in blues. The light on the lake seems flat but focused, as if it were a stage lit very powerfully from way high up.

Creates a sense of expectancy. What is going to happen?!?

The dead model was fully vaxxed.

I thought he was as soon as I read the story. You can't travel all over the world unless you are fully vaxxed.

I wonder if Trump clenched his sphincter when Silk alluded to Diamond dying "suddenly" and saying don't call her a conspiracy theorist for questioning.

From a Hunter Biden email:

Poroshenko appears to be the likely next President. Determining our teams relationship with him is important. He is credible with the west and by all accounts a true reformer (by Uk standards).
2. Some sort of decentralization will likely occur in the East. If it doesn't the Russians will continue to escalate there destabilization campaign, which could lead to a full scale take over of the eastern region most critically Donetsk. The strategic value is to create a land bridge for RU to Crimea.
3. That won't directly affect Burisma holdings but it will limit future Uk exploration and utilization of offshore opportunities in particular.

Are we involved in Ukraine to protect Burisma's business interests?

The email is long and detailed. Did that detailed insight into Ukrainian affairs come from those documents that were in Joe's garage? We will never know, Garland will see to that.

I liked this line too:

The pipelines across Uk are the key to all of this. But if the Uks shut down the pipeline they also shut down 60% of their energy supply and put a strangle on EU supplies from RU which the EU will never accept (b/c they are pussies).

Pussies don't like wars, that's why they are pussies.

Oh yeah, and this FBI agent who was just arrested for helping the Russians avoid sanctions? His daughters were playing soccer with Hunter Biden, per one email. Obviously they were social friends, at least.

Did u know Inspector Gen. found FBI's #Comey mishandled/took home classified memos, Leaked sensitive info to hurt Trump, Disclosed classified info to attorneys w/out notifying FBI as required?
DOJ declined IG referral to prosecute.

Garland says that the DoJ is not biased in favor of Democrats and against Republicans.

I think I wrote in the wrong thread again.

If you're trying to figure out who is running the op against all political opponents in the United States, you just have to pay attention to who IS NOT being investigated for hauling away millions of Top Secret documents:

Barack Hussein Obama

gilbar said...

So gilbar, Matt Gaetz, and extremist Tyler Durdan from zerohedge are shocked that President Zelenskyy cleaned house of some crooks in high places. It's funny how four years of gangsterism by the Trump administration went unnoticed by these same critics.

Hey gadfly, google Zelensky and Pandora Papers, then get back to us about corruption in Ukraine. It's a purge, plain and simple.

"And now, here we find that one of the chief investigators of the entire Russian collusion hoax has actually been colluding with a Russian oligarch.

This story, of course, comes just a couple of weeks after learning that James Baker, one of the lead attorneys at the Justice Department during the Russian collusion hoax investigation, left the agency to go work for Twitter and became one of the top voices at that social media giant responsible for the censorship of the aforementioned Hunter Biden laptop story."

Comments like this proliferate on the internet. Trump's a Nazi, Trump's a tyrant etc ... as they refuse to acknowledge Obama/ Biden/ AG Garfinkel tapping reporter's phones, arresting school board critics, Swat raids on the Roger Stone's of the world, jailing Jan 6 miscreants in the gulag, encouraging BLM violence, censoring via Big Tech. Yeah Trump's a gangster.

"Newly released evidence proves police officers were gassed by “friendly fire” on January 6, 2021.
Did that include Brian Sicknick?"

"But body camera footage from a D.C. Metropolitan police officer on duty that day raises serious doubts about the government’s claims and the Times’ face-saving story about what happened to Sicknick. In fact, the video shows how police, not protesters, gassed their fellow officers with chemical spray. Stricken officers, including Sicknick, appear to seek aid and shelter from the toxic gas, causing the collapse of a security line on the west side of the building."

When do we get an apology from Nasty Nancy and her roving gang of lying scumbags???


Humperdink said...

Not sure what happened to Kevin McCarthy. Maybe he got a spine transplant during the alleged "chaos" on the speaker's vote, but this takedown of Schiff and Swalwell is glorious.

"But as I uncovered in my book, “The Man Behind the Curtain: Inside the Secret Network of George Soros,” with President Biden, Soros’ lackeys are everywhere, and the Soros infiltration of Team Biden began before he even took office.

Biden’s transition team was formed after the 2020 election and quickly began staffing itself with liberals connected to Soros and his network.

Soros was represented well by Biden’s picks, with individuals working for organizations founded by or funded by Soros making up at least 17 of them. This included individuals picked to work on the transition teams of the State Department, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, United States Mission to the United Nations, Department of Defense, Department of Labor, Department of the Interior, Department of the Treasury, Federal Reserve, Banking and Securities Regulators, National Security Council, Office of the US Trade Representative and Department of Veterans Affairs.

A number of individuals within the Soros sphere of influence then entered Biden’s Cabinet:"

"Instead of spending years chasing down 100% fake Russian collusion by Donald Trump, turns out the FBI should have been more worried about the red under its own bed. Indeed, McGonigal was one of the chief instigators of the now-infamous “Crossfire Hurricane” probe into Trump and his circle that found zilch: He sent the email that set off the whole shebang!

Bonus irony: Both dossier author Christopher Steele and FusionGPS, the firm that hired him to do it, also did work for Deripaska. The only way this could get more incestuous is if these names popped up in that ex-intel-officials’ domestic disinformation campaign to paint Hunter Biden’s 100% real laptop as a Russian op"

Mystery solved. They didn't put gates up in the train station because of terrorism, or even to keep out vagrants and derelicts. It's about "fare avoidance." It used to be that you could buy your ticket on the train, and if the conductor didn't ask you for money you had a free ride. If you bought a ticket and the conductor didn't take it, you could use that ticket the next time you took a train ride. Now I suppose those days are over.

Commuters don't like it, because you now have to wait in line to enter the station's main hall where you board the train, and to leave the hall after your train into the city arrives. The QR code probably shows the date, so you can't use an old one to get into or out of the station. "Ticket" is not really the word to use now either, since more and more people use the app to get a "ticket" on their phone, rather than by a paper one.

"gangsterism" That's a rather 'Stalinesque' turn of phrase don't you think? Gangster like? Criminal?
Anyway. Please expound further on Trumps gangsterism. Be as specific as you can.

Narr said...

"Please expound further on Trumps gangsterism."

gadflea should be asking why the best investigative bodies in the world, public and private, keep covering for Boss Trump. After all, they spent millions and years investigating him--why won't they release the evidence of his criminality?
