Posted in: Russia abandons key bastion; Putin ally suggests a nuclear response See in context

They are saying 90% of the several 1000 American mercenaries who have been in the country more than a few days, i.e. enough time to get to the front, have been killed or captured. And the Russians have categorically and openly stated mercenaries are not subject to the Geneva Convention. I bet those American mercenaries who were captured, not killed, wish they were killed right about now.

No better example of the utter manufactured delusion Putin and his far-right supporters are living in...

You can't call it a Potemkin Village - it goes far beyond that - into some kind of alternate reality where defeat is interpreted as victory...

To these folks, the Moskva was never sunk and is making port calls around Russia today...

This never-never land reminds me of a certain former reality TV host and his fairy tale world of a rigged election...

Putin and his cabal of war criminals sound more desperate each day....

He now controls less territory in Ukraine after 8 months than he did after the first five days of his invasion...

There's a word for that....retreat...the only military tactic the Russian Army has shown any competence at...

Expect even more bombast, pomposity, and bluster...as his Army is left in ruins and driven back into Russia...and the Little Dictator gets even more red-faced...

Kishida was literally between a rock and a hard place...

Abe's 'Seiwa-kai" faction is the largest in the LDP - they wanted a state funeral to venerate their departed leader...if Kishida opposed it, they'd throw their support to someone else and he'd gave to step down as Party Leader and Prime Minister...

This, and the Unification church scandal, will take a hit on his popularity....but it's not like the public has another choice. They still remember how disastrous the last time the opposition was in power, and know they can't be trusted with governing...

So he'll limp along, until the LDP decides it needs a new face, that most likely being Taro Kono...

Posted in: Meta says China-based campaign aimed at U.S. election See in context

his is the part that is never communicated strongly when this topic comes up. It is always framed by the media like its 100% support of the non liberal side as some kind of "gotcha!".

Elections finance law complaints against an Asian day-spa operator from South Florida who allegedly funneled contributions from Chinese elites, likely including foreign nationals, to a campaign committee backing then-President Donald Trump have quietly been dismissed. The dismissal by the Federal Elections Commission came despite a staff finding that laws likely were broken and that the matter merited the FEC’s full attention. The six-member panel split 3-3, as is its usual practice, on whether to proceed, with Democrats voting yes and Republicans saying no. Four votes are needed for a full investigation to occur.

The J6B - Jan 6th Bill....it will permit only the "correct" version of Jan 6th to be taught in school - that it was a peaceful protest with no violence, involving mostly tourists, and a few FBI trained Antifa instigators.

In addition, a rider on this bill requires teachers to say only good things about red caps. Teachers caught saying disparaging things about red caps could lose their jobs and be fined...

Lastly, there's a clause that says in Florida it's legal to store classified up tp TS/SCI in your closet.

Posted in: Here's how U.S. government documents are classified to keep sensitive information safe See in context

Three interesting developments occurred today in this espionage and national security incident involving former President Trump...

It was learned today that the source inside Trump's inner circle that tipped off the FBI that he had additional classified information stored in boxes was none other than.....Melania. She reportedly said she was afraid of being buried on a golf course...

Trump himself was interviewed today and asked how the information got to Mar-A-Lago. Trump replied "Mar-A-Lago? I've never been there - don't know where it is"..... Is that where Bill and Hillary live?"

Trump was also asked if he ever read classified material.... "Never, never read the stuff....BORING!"... I gave it all to Pence....ask him how it got to Mar-A-Lago"....

Posted in: FBI seized 'top secret' documents from Trump home See in context

The FBI recovered documents that were labeled “top secret” from former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, according to court papers released Friday after a federal judge unsealed the warrant that authorized the unprecedented search this week. A property receipt unsealed by the court shows FBI agents took 11 sets of classified records from the estate during a search on Monday. The seized records include some marked not only top secret but also “sensitive compartmented information,” a special category meant to protect the nation's most important secrets that if revealed publicly could cause “exceptionally grave” damage to U.S. interests. The court records did not provide specific details about information the documents might contain.

This is now one of our nation's most serious espionage and national security incidents in our entire history...

All Americans should be outraged that one of our nation's trusted leaders took extremely sensitive national security information to his home, stored it in boxes in his closet, lied about turning it in, then was "outed" by a close insider...

The most concerning issue however is, who was he planning to share this information with? He obviously planned to do something with it since he could have turned it in last Jan with the other 15 boxes he stole, but lied and didn't. So who was he planning to share or sell this to?

I wouldn't be surprised to see treason added to the long list of charges...

Trump had very little chance of running again in 2024, but now that plan has gone up in flames...

Posted in: U.S. attorney general says he 'personally approved' Trump home search See in context

Some things are fairly consistent with Trump.

In Jan, he incites his crowd of far-right extremists; Proud Boys, Three Percenters, Oath Keepers, who then stage a violent insurrection attempt at our nation's Capitol, injuring over 140 police officers.

Now in Aug, he incites this same crowd with rants about the search of Mar-A-Lago being a "witch hunt", one of whom then takes an assault rifle to the FBI office in Cincinnati, makes threats, leaves, then opens fire on the Ohio State Patrol.

Posted in: GOP rallies around Trump following FBI search of his estate See in context

Reports are that 12 boxes of evidence were removed from Mar-A-Lago. That means that either;

1) Trump was lying when he said he just took 15 boxes - and kept additional classified info, possibly including Top Secret, unsecured at Mar-A-Lago.

2) The FBI found a massive new amount of evidence of crimes, likely related to the illegal fraudulent electors scheme, or collusion with violent far-right extremist groups leading up to Jan 6, or his phone call to Rafensberger trying to obstruct the Georgia election.

This is a major step in Trump's investigation - this evidence will also go in front of the grand jury. Expect an indictment soon.

Trump is toast - his supporters can rant about "political investigations" all they want - and contribute to Trump's "Keep Me Out of Jail" fund that will likely pay for Melania's fashion designer.

Pompeo testified before the Jan 6th committee today - he knows his former boss is toxic and a lost cause.

Time for the Repubs and the so-called conservatives to fess up and just strike "freedom" from their lexicon...they no longer believe in that value...

Freedom for women to control their own bodies? No, no, no....

Freedom to vote? Not with all the new voting restrictions....

Freedom from gun violence? No more with new Red State lax gun laws...

Freedom to elect our President? As the Jan 6th hearings have shown, not when you can stage a coup with false electors and phony certifications lists...

Freedom joins law and order, fiscal responsibility, and US global leadership in the Repub waste-can...

Posted in: Facing threats, some U.S. election workers weigh whether to stay See in context

The incident is just one of many in which election officials and workers have felt threatened since the 2020 presidential election and the false claims that it was stolen from former President Donald Trump. A federal effort to investigate these threats has so far yielded three prosecutions since it was launched a year ago.

The cult of Trump, which includes the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, 3 Percenters, and other violent domestic terrorist groups continue to pose a threat to our nation...

And Trump keeps inciting them to more violence with his now clearly debunked claims of massive voter fraud....

The Jan 6th hearings have shown that Trump knew he lost, yet keep up the masquerade to fleece his supporters out of $250 million...

But that won't last much longer - WH Counsel Pat Cipollone testified today under oath - and he no doubt expanded on his statement made last Jan when he said; “We're Going to Get Charged of Every Crime Imaginable" ...

The indictments are already typed out....

Xi now knows two things; 1) Putin lies worse than Trump, and 2) any CCP invasion of Taiwan would be met with both a strong military and economic backlash from the West....

He won't roll those dice....but will continue with the hot air as it costs him nothing....

Posted in: U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade; states can ban abortion See in context

Once again, Repubs provide clear proof that they are nothing but liars and scoundrels...

“It is important precedent of the Supreme Court that has been reaffirmed many times,” Kavanaugh said of Roe. “It is not as if it is just a run of the mill case that was decided and never been reconsidered, but Casey specifically reconsidered it, applied the stare decisis factors, and decided to reaffirm it. That makes Casey a precedent on precedent.” 

Gorsuch, in 2017, would only characterize Roe as “a precedent of the U.S. Supreme Court” reaffirmed by several subsequent cases. He went on to say that precedent fills out U.S. law. “Once a case is settled, that adds to the determinacy of the law. What was once a hotly contested issue is no longer a hotly contested issue. We move forward,” he added.

But they're already here - at least that's what Fox News says every day - hundreds of thousands....and all those that are pregnant should give birth in the US or have the right to an abortion?

if we secure our borders NOW all the births will be done in no more than 9 months then wont be any more.

Then how come we didn't secure our borders from 2016-2020? I thought there was supposed to be a "wall" so pregnant women couldn't walk across the border?

Yes, they should give birth if there is no way to legally deport them for being in the country illegally.

OK, so they should be denied an abortion if they wanted one, and forced to give birth in the US, which entitles the child to US citizenship, and the entire undocumented family to green cards...

You definitely are off-script with your fellow Replacement Theory far-right friends...good...
