I'm NOT a Ukrainian MP but I'm all for it. 7.4 billion is probably at least half of Ukraine's GDP.

I think there are all kinds of foreign money going into Democrat coffers from Ukraine, China, Saudi Arabia, and others. We have plenty of forensic accountants doing nothing that can trace that money all the way into the Democrats bank accounts.

Gosh, from things like this, you'd almost think the Democrat Party was some kind of criminal enterprise.

Most people with good common sense can see that the Ukraine connection was set up as a money laundering operation where US Taxpayer Money was Laundered and fed back through Channels to The Bidens, Polosi, Kerry, and others, then redistributed to various Democrats in on “The Take”. All the Current Investigations are simply to hide and cover for their illegal activities. Just a Smoke Screen. We should celebrate the attempt to clean this up and find justice for these corrupt people.

CROWDSTRIKE, why is nobody taking about CROWDSTRIKE. Crowdstrike was the subject of President Trump's favor to check into. The Biden thing was an afterthought. CROWDSTRIKE is key to the DNCC involvement to interference in the election. This whole thing stinks to high heavens.

FTA: Meanwhile, Derkach said that several facts indicate Franklin Templeton Investments' relationship with the U.S. Democratic Party. "The son of Templeton's founder, John Templeton Jr., was one of President Obama's major campaign donors. Another fund-related character is Thomas Donilon. Managing Director of BlackRock Investment Institute, shareholder Franklin Templeton Investments, which has the largest share in the fund. It is noteworthy that he previously was Obama's national security advisor," Derkach said. The MP said that the presidents of Ukraine and the United States should combine the efforts of the two countries to establish facts of corruption and money laundering with the participation of citizens of both countries. The whole article is quite interesting. Recommend a read. This may finally knock the blocks out from under Schiff’s kangaroo court. It will also put the spotlight back where it belongs: On the former vice president of the United States, Joseph Biden, and his son Hunter. And on Obama who watched all this go on and did nothing. Joe Biden, the failing candidate, has nothing to do with this old story. What needs to be investigated happened in another time, on another president’s watch. It is a crime in Ukraine and it is clear that Ukrainians - with the help of our honest President - intend to do something about it.

Add to that the money democrats received from Russia and China (and who knows who else) and we are talking about real money. Of course, apparently no taxes were paid on the money, and who knows how the loot was divided?

Excellent news. I have a number of friends and former colleagues in Ukraine, they will be happy if Yanukovich's money is brought back, and his corrupt associates brought to justice. Lots of praying going on in the minority in Kiev who are Christians, I am sure. Maybe it is working. But, I always remember that "God helps those who help themselves.", too.

The story of seven-year-old James, whom his mother has pressured to become “Luna,” has been all over my newsfeed. The messy custody battle deserves every second of our click-bait-prone attention: Jeffrey Younger, James’s father, wants to keep his son’s body intact, while Anne Georgulas, James’s mother, wants to allow for “treatment” that would physically and chemically castrate him. The havoc that divorce wreaks in a child’s life is mainstage in this tragic case. Most of us children of divorce quickly learn to act one way with mom and another way with dad.

Lara Trump took the stage in a convention room at the Valley Forge Casino Resort and gave the crowd a puzzled look. “I’m a little confused,” President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law said. “I didn’t think women liked Donald Trump!” A crowd of about 1,000, mostly women, waving flags and wearing “Make America Great Again” hats, cheered and laughed back. The rally launched the president’s national “Women for Trump” campaign, aimed at bettering Trump’s support among women. The group hopes to encourage women to fund-raise, train volunteers, register voters, and speak proudly about their support, which several in the crowd said can be difficult.

HONG KONG - Hong Kong police fired rubber bullets and tear gas at demonstrators who threw plastic bottles on Wednesday as protests against an extradition bill that would allow people to be sent to mainland China for trial descended into violent chaos. Tens of thousands of protesters had gathered peacefully outside the Chinese-ruled city’s legislature before tempers flared, some charging police with umbrellas. (Snip) Opposition to the bill on Sunday triggered Hong Kong’s biggest political demonstration since its handover from British to Chinese rule in 1997 under a “once country, two systems” deal guaranteeing it special autonomy, including freedom of assembly, free press and independent judiciary.

On Monday, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation commended Chick-fil-A for its decision to halt donations to several Christian charities but demanded the fast-food chain do more to change its “anti-LGBTQ” brand. GLAAD said it “greet[s] today’s announcement with cautious optimism” but warned that the Georgia-based company still has work to do to fix its tarnished image with the LGBTQ community. “In addition to refraining from financially supporting anti-LGBTQ organizations, Chick-fil-A still lacks policies to ensure safe workplaces for LGBTQ employees and should unequivocally speak out against the anti-LGBTQ reputation that their brand represents,” GLAAD director of campaigns Drew Anderson said in a statement to CNN.

Thank goodness the Duncan, Oklahoma Walmart is not a “gun-free zone.” Because an armed citizen happened to be doing his shopping Monday morning and spotted a gunman shooting, victim fatalities were limited to two people. Brandon Curtis of Concealed Nation writes: A shooting incident occurred in a Walmart parking lot this morning where a man and woman were shot and killed as they sat inside a vehicle. Immediately after, it is reported that an armed citizen, who was in the immediate area, drew his gun and put it to the head of the suspect and told him to stop shooting.

Democratic presidential candidate Deval Patrick was forced to cancel a campaign event Wednesday night after only two people showed up. Patrick, who entered the primary field too late to qualify for the MSNBC debate in Atlanta, was scheduled to speak across town at a campaign event at Morehouse College, a historically black university. He cancelled the event after only two students showed up, according to CNN reporter Annie Grayer. "Governor @DevalPatrick was supposed to have an event at Morehouse College tonight," Grayer reported.

Myles Garrett’s appeal of his indefinite suspension included a claim that Mason Rudolph used a racial slur before their brawl, ESPN.com reported. Garrett is trying to have his ban reduced after he swung his helmet wildly at the Steelers quarterback in the final seconds of the Browns’ 21-7 win over Pittsburgh last Thursday. Rudolph strongly denied the accusation, both through the team and his attorney. “This is a lie. This false allegation was never asserted by Garrett in the aftermath of the game, never suggested prior to the hearing, and conspicuously absent in the apology published by the Browns and adopted by Garrett

During her recent visit to Washington, DC, Swedish teen climate activist Greta Thunberg was hailed by Barack Obama as “one of our planet’s greatest advocates.” When the two met prior to her speech before Congress, the former president assured her of his own environmental bona fides with this: “You and me, we’re a team.” Cropped close-up from Obama Foundation YouTube To demonstrate her passionate commitment to reducing fossil fuel emissions, Greta traveled from her country to the U.S. by a solar powered yacht, rather than a gas-guzzling private jet, the most planet-destructive mode of transportation.

2019 is poised to be either the second or third-warmest year on record, according to newly released data from the US government. According to a report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the “global land and ocean surface temperature departure from average for October 2019 was the second-highest for the month of October,” dating back to 1880. “The year-to-date temperature for 2019 was also the second warmest on record for the January–October period,” NOAA added. “Based on current anomalies and historical global annual temperature readings, it appears that it is virtually certain that 2019

In the interest of full disclosure, I loved the 1970's Charlie's Angels. The show was about three women who were women first rather than political activists sending messages about this or that. Over the weekend, a new version came out, and it did not do very well, according to early accounts: "Charlie's Angels" ... wasn't able to entice its core audience of younger females and arrived well behind domestic box office projections (the studio was anticipating a start closer to $13 million). Though co-financing partners will help offset any potential losses for Sony, "Charlie's Angels" will now rely on overseas audiences to help recoup its $48 million production budget.

GOP Rep. Mike Turner, R-Ohio, hammered America's ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland, during Wednesday's testimony, seizing on Sondland's admission that he never heard the president or anyone else in the White House explicitly link Ukrainian aid with the opening of an investigation into 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., applauded his colleague on producing "the real bombshell" of Sondland's long-anticipated testimony and marked the moment as "game over," for the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry. That inquiry is focusing on an alleged quid pro quo between President Trump and Ukraine linking military aid and White House access to Ukraine probes beneficial to Trump.

California's largest power utility began shutting off power Wednesday to hundreds of thousands of people in 18 northern and central counties in the state as the region faces extreme fire weather that has lasted since October. Up to 450,000 people could be affected by the outage, according to the LA Times. A virtually rainless fall has left brush bone-dry and forecasts called for low humidity and winds gusting at times to 55 mph. The conditions have raised fears that tree branches or other debris could fall on to power lines, causing sparks that may set off catastrophic fires in the region,
