  • Russia’s moves in recent days to amass troops at the border and deploy navy landing ships and gunboats to the Black Sea have sparked debate among experts about whether Vladimir Putin is truly preparing to escalate his country’s seven-year conflict against Ukraine or simply mounting a defiant show - for his own people, or for the new U.S. administration, which is preparing to enact harsh new sanctions.

  • It's worse than what was described, though. Remember that throughout the whole "Stop the Steal" nonsense, Drumpf was raking in donations to "protect the election" and "fight the fraud in court" and so on. Well, that money was literally earmarked mostly for "outstanding campaign expenses" meaning the vast majority of the money lorD dampnuT stole from his supporters was paid back by his OTHER supporters allowing the grifter-in-chief to essentially KEEP the stolen money. Combined with the obscene amount of money charged to the taxpayer by Convict 45 at his hotels and resorts (for things like secret service rooms and catering) on EVERY ONE of the MYRIAD of vacations and trips he took. The ENTIRE last four years was a GIGANTIC scam, and it was America getting bent over and F****D by the orange fuhrer.

If you were independent of the studio I would say ok, but at this point your studio is no better than the Maga man himself. So glad I cut the cable years ago.

    • The only evidence has been from radical progressives' media most of that has already been refuted it's just that the mainstream media no longer issues retractions or corrections involving conservatives. For example a news article surfaced in October of last year reporting that Donald Trump had a large loan which was owned by the Bank of China & was coming due. This had not been vetted. Several other news outlets picked up the story and reported it as well. When the Bank of China issued it's own correction that the note was only owned for 10 days in 2013 & sold back to a US bank this information was not reported by any of the MSM. That's just one of dozens of examples. Most of what you hear is markedly false. Most of whats left is either half truth or deception by omission. No news media outlet would have dared to use such tactics 5 years or more ago. Not in the United States.

  • Another one - as someone who for academic purposes tried to send his campaign a question through official portals. After submitting your message, you were brought instantly and directly to the campaign contribution page, with $150 already written on the line. I recieved no notification that my message went through, and never recieved a response. Better than any member of the House, who requires the use of a local Zipcode before you even write your message. If you're out of jurisdiction, you're just told to scram. Try it out, from AOC to Kev McCarthy. I found it nuts
