Russia and Belarus Banned from Wimbledon


I agree with this unless dual citizen.

There are 40 Russians playing hockey in the NHL, a few who are pals with Putin.

Someone Sent Kyiv MiG-29 Fighter Jets

This is how it should work, I can't understand why everything has to plastered all over the front page of the newspaper. We don't need to
know everything that goes on in an active war zone.

We don’t know how many MiG-29s Ukraine got from its donor or donors. Maybe Poland transferred all 28 of its old, Soviet-made MiGs, which the country is replacing with new F-35 stealth fighters from the United States. Maybe Bulgaria donated all 15 of its MiGs. Maybe Slovakia sent its 12 MiG-29s. Bulgaria and Slovakia both are replacing their Soviet-made fighters with American-made F-16s.


Citizen Group Demands DOJ Investigate Missing Call Logs

A Citizen group, CREW, has demanded that DOJ investigate whether or not, Donald Trump destroyed documents that could prove he committed a crime. Just another instance of where DOJ should at least investigate.

I apologize for the Raw Story link, ignore the ads.

Building on a February 8 letter — sent before the call logs were shared last month with the U.S. House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021—Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) and National Security Archive again wrote to Attorney General Merrick Garland and Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Christopher Wray.

Demanding an investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the groups' letter emphasizes that the "significant gap" in Trump records corresponds to "a critical period when the Capitol was under attack by insurrectionists, raising the possibility that portions of the call logs were willfully destroyed to cover up evidence of criminal misconduct."

"As our previous letter outlines," the document reiterates, "former President Trump engaged in a pattern of conduct throughout his tenure in office that violated his record-keeping obligations under the Presidential Records Act in multiple ways."


Here's a better link from Salon

Mark Meadows, Mike Lee, Ginni Thomas, fake Electors, John Eastman,

I just don't want people to forget their names.

Remember how Republicans held all of the hearings for Benghazi just to smear Hillary politically? Democrats can't hold a hearing for people who committed seditious conspiracy.

We get what we deserve. I have one thing to say about members of the Trump party, they are go getters. They use dark money to pay a foundation to come up with fake talking points to bash president Biden's agenda and to lie about Biden's nominees to his administration.
What they did at Justice Jackson's hearing is right out of the autocratic playbook. Democrats don't have time to hold hearings to find the truth. I've lost faith in DOJ.

I am done crying about why the MSM doesn't cover this. If Democrats held hearings they would cover it.

I am not bashing the select committee, it is doing a fantastic job. It will expose all of the crimes that could have been charged.

There is no reason why Democrats can't hold separate hearings to go after any one of the seditious conspirators who I mentioned, Mark Meadows appears to be the Keystone.

Where's my Pennsylvania Absentee Ballot?

I was told by a Democratic election official, not to worry. The Pa. legislature outlawed no excuse absentee ballots. The law was supposed to be overturned by the SC 2 1/2 weeks ago.

Less than a month to go for the primary. My ballot application has been received at my county election office and it is "pending."

I can't wait to vote for Fetterman, let's get it together SC.

Cut and Paste Articles

This bugs me, sorry. If you are going to cut and paste an article, you should at least have the wherewithal to give your opinion on the article you just posted. I don't mean, wow, isn't that terrible, kind of opinion.

All of the time, people cut and paste articles from right wing rags like The Hill, or Business Insider, who push right wing narratives.

I guess this gives them an out for not getting a hide for pushing right wing talking points since they post right wing talking points and then a short, isn't that awful statement. I am not trying to tell anyone what to post, it's good to know the awful things that Magats are pushing, maybe I'm off base here, if so, I apologize.

President Biden should go to Ukraine

Don't send the V.P. or Secretary of State, or Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

Just Go. Your mere presence would be uplifting.

Do it.

We Should Have Pitchforks In The Streets.

I had to sigh reading a thread here last night about the Meadows, Lee, Roy, texts back and forth. Posters here were saying, basically, nothing to see, not enough to indict.

For fuck's sake folks, he have evidence of the GQP, the president, and his lawyers, working to overturn the results of a certified, democratic election.

I guarantee everyone, if these people had been Democrats the Magats would have pitchforks in the streets.

Don't blame the MSM, everyone should know it is owned and managed by the right. If people were in the streets with pitchforks the MSM would cover it.

No wonder our country is headed for autocracy.

Don't expect Merrick Garland to save the day, Mike Lee wanted Trump to replace Comey with Merrick Garland. Imagine that.

So we can't prosecute Trump.

That's what I hear a lot. No way we can get 12 jurors to convict Trump, there will always be a Magat to gum up the trial.

So much for that theory. A Magat who invaded the Capitol was just convicted on all 6 counts, one count's maximum sentence is 20 years. Why is this significant regarding Trump? His lawyer used the argument that his client was duped by Trump, was urged by Trump to invade the Capitol. The lawyer even tried to subpoena Trump to testify. The jury only deliberated for 3 hours.

A jury can and will convict Trump, when and if DOJ indicts.

Much vaccine misinformation/disinformation came from Russia.

Anyone active on social media is aware that there is a great deal of passionate but ill-founded opposition to vaccination, including to the new COVID-19 vaccines. How could that be? Physicians and the public health establishment are constantly promoting vaccination, especially as we try to stem the tide of the coronavirus pandemic.

It turns out that the anti-vaccine sentiment is the product of what can only be described as an industry whose principal protagonists are an organized group of professional propagandists. As recently reported in the science journal Nature, they are people “running multi-million-dollar organizations, incorporated mainly in the USA, with as many as 60 staff each.”

Moreover, the source of much of the misinformation about vaccines comes from an unobvious source: the Russian government’s propaganda apparatus, which cultivates and exploits foreign anti-vaccine “useful idiots,” causing palpable harm to Americans and citizens of other Western countries.

As I’ve previously described, Russia regularly conducts health-related disinformation and propaganda campaigns intended to humiliate or disparage the country’s foreign enemies. In the 1980s, the Soviet Union concocted an elaborate disinformation scheme to blame the appearance of HIV and AIDS on U.S. military research. They first planted the story in a sympathetic Indian newspaper, then followed it up with other fake stories that cited the initial report.

A 2018 U.S. Senate-commissioned analysis by New Knowledge, a cybersecurity firm, confirmed that Russia’s infamous troll factory, the Internet Research Agency, conducts “modern information warfare” against its adversaries. Renee DiResta, the research director of the firm, described the IRA’s battle plan as a “cross-platform attack that made use of numerous features on each social network and that spanned the entire social ecosystem.”

A study published by academics in 2018, “Weaponized Health Communication: Twitter Bots and Russian Trolls Amplify the Vaccine Debate,” found that thousands of Russian social media accounts were spreading anti-vaccine messaging. From an examination of almost two million tweets posted between 2014 and 2017, the researchers found that Russian troll accounts were significantly more likely to tweet about vaccination than were Twitter users generally. They noted that Russian tweets like, “Apparently only the elite get ‘clean’ #vaccines. And what do we, normal ppl, get?!” seem intended to exacerbate socioeconomic tensions in the United States.

Russia is at it again now, in earnest. Using online publications to raise concerns about the rapidity of the coronavirus vaccines’ development and their safety, they have been conducting an aggressive campaign to undermine confidence in the Pfizer-BioNTech and other Western coronavirus vaccines.
