A Native-American Democratic woman won Alaska’s Representative seat against Sarah Palin!
received 23k tons of wheat, Yemen got 40k tons.
Russians have begun a stealth conscription in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
Russia has already used 7 million shells. Sanctions mean their supply won’t last past December.
Christina Bobb was the Custodian of Records for Trump, so she was the one who signed the “sworn certification that the documents represent all responsive records.” Oops! She’ll either find her license to practice law in jeopardy or she’ll become a witness who claims she believed what Trump told her.
Okay, fine. Biden is not acting to try and reach "Unity" with his political opponents. But how exactly have Republicans attempted to reach unity since Senator McConnell decided back in 2009 to adopt a "scorched earth" approach?
The Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre points out that while the President is trying for unity, many in the other party are making threats. Biden is hardly the only one who is not uniting!
Ukrainian counter-offensive in the Kherson region is going well! Main objective has been to blast ammo stockpiles. Russian artillery is already running low! Ukrainians are going to try and take city with minimal casualties by cutting off supplies.
In the wake of the Supreme Court decision stripping away abortion rights, Republicns are frantically backtracking. Ha! Too late! We see you! Good rant. Preach it, sister! Preach it!
If this is true, then like Lincoln in 1861, Zelenskyy egged on his opponent to make the first move, thereby permitting Zelenskyy to claim that the other fellow was the aggressor. It’s a risky strategy as the other side may gain victory in his initial assault, but it gains sympathy for the attacked side
reviews DOJ filing. Truly flabbergasting statement: The Trump lawyers
...they had not found any more classified records,
and any records that remained were in the storage room. They refused
to let the FBI agents look at the boxes in the storage room. (emphasis added)
The last leader of the Soviet Union passed away last night. Blogger looks back at Gorbachev's legacy.
Nearly two years after the 2020 election, Governor DeSantis of Florida arrests 20 people for illegally voting. Whose fault was it? D’oh! Florida’s!
"Mississippi Capital Without Any Water For 180,000 People"
Unfortunately for the former president, the “fully debunked Russia, Russia, Russia Hoax” was never debunked and never a hoax. It was always solidly based on facts.
Ooh! Not good! A field glaciologist reports on what’s going on with glaciers.
hoo! Offensive operations begin in Kherson!
contributes $200 million to see to it that Ukrainian homes are heated
doings at the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant.
Very good news from Ukraine! Sounds as though they're making great progress in re-taking Kherson. If absolutely nothing else, they making Russians move units frantically around, trying to keep up with what Ukrainians are doing.
Fox News reacts to Biden speech. You know what the best way for the media to respond to this would be? It would be for them to examine the charge that Biden is making. Fascism is a very deeply-studied subject, so coming up with solid definitions isn’t hard.
Speaking of fascism, the media would also do well to seriously examine whether Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is one or not (Spoiler alert: He is).
The MAGA Republicans are really annoyed and upset that Biden is calling them fascists!
blogger agrees with various right-wing critics, they aren’t
“semi-fascist,” the MAGA types are just plain ol’ fascists,
Again, it's really hard to take these complaints seriously when CPAC hosted the Hungarian Viktor Orban just a few weeks ago, who was speaking of "soft fascism" and who has been referred to as a fascist.
As the Russian economy sputters under sanctions that came because of the war against Ukraine, Jewish people in Russia feel increasingly scapegoated for economic hard times.
*Sigh!* Again, people are trying to compare Clinton's emails with Trump's illegally-retained documents. Okay 1. Hillary Clinton did not deliberately have classified documents in her email, People sent her documents that were clasified. She never sent any herself. 2. Yes, if a document is marked classified, then yes, it’s classified. No, the president cannot simply declare a document unclassified. System doesn’t work that way. 2.a. The relevant agency must not be simply notified, they can object to declassification. 2.b. Certain information, such as nuclear designs, cannot be declassified!
I have no problem holding these two people to the same standard. Out of 33k emails, a trivial number had classified information in them. Trump, OTOH, deliberately, consciously, with malice and forethought, took clearly-marked documents that he knew full well were not his to take.
non-military target, a movie house, is destroyed.
several years ago that the US made a serious error in the way they
got replacement troops to the battlefield, they sent soldiers to the
front a few at a time, y’know “We need three more riflemen.”
These troops were lost at a very high rate! The Germans during World
War II had a much better way. They waited for the unit to take so
many losses, they pulled the whole unit out, introduced the new
people to the vets, did training for a few days so that the new
people were brought up to speed. When they got back to the front,
they fought as a unit.
Ah, it's the anniversay of Obama wearing the tan suit! The only real scandal during Obama's presidency! 1. He actually did it. 2. We had the evidence right away. 3. People were shocked and horrified.
It appears this raid was, in fact, just about documents. As even some on the left have opined: that is simply outrageous.
And to think, this blithering idiot was once a White House Chief of
Staff! Just and merely "about documents?"
Mick, why do you think the Fourth Amendment mentions “papers” as being
protected against unreasonable search and seizure? Could it be that
they can constitute…evidence of a crime?
Because of glaciers in the North of Pakistan melting, 2 million acres of farmland have been destroyed and nearly 800k livestock animals have been killed.
Huh! I had no idea Karen Carpenter was a really skilled drummer.

appear to be trying to head off a Ukrainian counter-attack.
Wow! A whale returned a cell phone to people! The whale knew somehow "These small objects are very important to the humans."
Very, very interesting. How many of these confidential informants lost their live because Trump carelessly stored their identities where foreign agents could access them? Or did he sell that information?
Adding to the mysterious deaths of intelligence sources over the last few years is the fact that the former president really, really doesn't like whistleblowers!
I am so happy that Elon Musk wasn't able to take over Twitter!
Elon Musk says population collapse ‘potentially the greatest risk to the future of civilization’
We have at least one very famous example of population collapse, Rome. During the whole Medieval Era, the population of Rome shrank so that living quarters in the city never even reached the outer walls that were built durng Rome's glory days. It wasn’t until the Renaissance that occupied buildings reached those walls again.

Kushner on Trump: 'He didn’t adapt to Washington to play by their
rules, and he was an existential threat to their power...'"
CNN completely drops the ball. Trump wasn't just getting legal advice from a fellow named Tom Fitton, who's the head of Judicial Watch. t would have been extremely helpful to note that Fitton is not a lawyer!!! Trump was getting incompetent legal advice!!!
"Why the Right Wingers in Israel and the US Really Oppose Iran Nuclear Deal: They want Regime Change Instead"
Heh! Right-wing Congresspeople are trying to diss the student loan forgiveness plan, so when they speak out, the White House informs the public of how much PPP money they were forgiven!
Did Project Veritas steal Ashley Biden’s diary? No, but they certainly acted to get ahold of what they knew was stolen property from those who did steal it. PV paid $40k for it and contracted for more!
According to a Yale study, the Russian economy is staggering along on its last legs. Will Biden be able to claim victory before the midterm elections? Odds are pretty good he’ll be able to.
"Lindsey Graham believes he’s above the law, tells judge that Georgia DA must explain her questioning"
They finally fired this knucklehead! The Schools Police Chief of Uvale who frittered around while children died. He wanted to wait until the public "calmed down" before he made any public appearances. He can now stay in private life, all by himself, for as long as he pleases!
About the end of June, HIMARS arrived and the Russian advance has pretty much been stopped ever since. The rocket system is seriously effing up Russian supplies.
Hmm. Highly questionable economic theories from Trump. He appears to think spending a lot of money is a terrible policy. Since when does he know anything about the economy anyway? When the economy pretty much collapsed under the weight of Covid, Trump didn’t have the vaguest clue how to respond.
Yes, Congress passing a law that overrides a Supreme Court decision is precisely how the system is supposed to work. Congress is at the top of the ladder.
Zelenskyy looks back at the half-year mark of the war against Russia.
Biden gets serious debt relief foe student loan borrowers.
"Democrats' student loan socialism is a slap in the face to working Americans..."

Someone posted a piece evaluating media outlets by ideology. The thread here shows that on at least the question of whether Biden should pardon Trump. The NY Times is all over the frikkin’ place! They ran pieces from hither and yon, saying all sorts of stuff! Can you sort media by ideology? Ehh, to a degree, but that really doesn’t tell you anything about credibility and people might us ideology as a proxy (Goldilocks system, those in the middle will be considered more credible).
Horrors! More on children being moved after the fall of Mariupol.
Good! Uvalde parents are suing local, state and federal law enforcement for $27 billion!
I make fun of the guy who tells me that Ukraine is “Doomed, I tell you! Doomed!” Here’s why I dismiss his pessimism. The Ukrainians damaged the bridge from Crimea to Kherson. They waited for the Russians to fix it. They then waited for ammunition trucks to try and cross it. then they struck! Ukrainians may be out-muscled and overrun, but they’ll never be out-maneuvered! Also, their surveillance is top-notch.
Representative Jordan lists a whole series of events
in Trump's presidency - Russia, Mueller (twice), impeachment (twice),
Covid and the Mar-a-Lago "raid" and then claims that "Despite it all,
President Trump is still fighting for us." Kind of a problem with that
is that is that in none of these cases was he fighting for "us," that is, America, especially not in the case of Covid!

Hoo yah for Poland! They’ll spend 1% of their GDP to help refugees.
Two good pieces to read together. In the first, just why has US law enforcement been convinced that Trump has been working closely with Russia?
And second, Trump's very unhinged and angry response to being suspected of working closely with Russia.
