Original Article

Here we go. The Clinton Global Initiative will launch a new network to provide ‘humanitarian aid’ to war-torn Ukraine. Of course. Recall, that Bill Clinton last year announced the Clinton Global Initiative will be hosting a leadership summit in New York in September after a 5-year hiatus. “This year’s meeting will focus on what it takes to keep going — to maintain and advance progress, in spite of the difficulties that arise, and increase our capacity to cross the divides and make common cause with one another wherever possible to build a stronger future for all,” the Clintons said in a letter to the CGI community.

The Clintons are parasites. They know where the money tree is and know how to shake it. These two will burn in hell. The Democrats know how to pick the most morally corrupt as their icons.

I remember the first go-around of the Clinton Grifter Initiative, where The HornDog persuaded GHWBush to appear in a TV commercial with him, begging the American taxpayers for Ca$h to send to Haiti. I never saw where anything got accomplished in Haiti, but I seem to recall that spawn Chelsea had a VERY expensive fancy wedding, and I recall reading that the Grifters bought a new multimillion-dollar mansion somewhere. Do any of you fellow L-Dotters know if ANY of it actually made it to the people in Haiti who needed it?

The far-right Alternative for Germany is currently polling between 19% and 23% nationally, according to data compiled across eight different platforms. Support for the AfD comes in well above the Social Democrats (SDP), the Greens, and the pro-business Free Democrats (FDP), who currently make up Germany’s coalition government. AfD secured a district council for the first time in June, in the eastern town of Sonneberg in the state of Thuringia, and many are looking to see whether other electorates will follow suit.

Jones is a loathsome political figure who cut a stout profile while rabidly stumping for Trump’s prosecution during her campaign for the prosecutorial seat she coveted and acquired. Throughout her campaign, James dog whistled about Trump’s illegitimacy as President, engaging in a brand of naughty thinking and speaking that Democrats regard as treasonous when applied to their drooling, vacant, staggering “President” — Joe Biden.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., a lifelong, true, loyal leftist, suddenly became popular among conservatives because he was one of the few leftists to speak out against COVID vaccines. This wasn’t any particular wisdom on his part; he’s always opposed all vaccines. However, because of this stance, when RFK Jr threw his hat in the Democrat primary ring against Biden, some conservatives got excited. This man, they thought, would siphon votes away from Biden, handing Republicans a win. But that’s not what will happen—and RFK knows it. In other words, he’s another weapon against Republicans.

The recent death of former Sen. Dianne Feinstein left Gov. Gavin Newsom in a predicament. Would he keep his promise to fill the seat with a black woman even though two white people (Adam Schiff and Katie Porter) are leading the 2024 race for the seat? As RedState reported, the answer is yes. Newsom appointed Laphonza Butler, whose only qualifications appear to be working on Kamala Harris' failed 2020 presidential campaign while being a "black lesbian." Naturally, the California governor is touting the latter.

The dramatic indictment of Sen.

But for New Jersey, the indictment raised a different question: Why can’t the Garden State shake its reputation as one of the corruption capitals of the U.S.?Of course, that reputation is partly the product of Hollywood hype, with films like On the Waterfront and TV shows like The Sopranos depicting the state as a hotbed of political duplicity and deceit.

A 'sensitive but unclassified' version of what is believed to be a possibly long-term U.S. plan for Ukraine outlines various measures the U.S. is taking to assist Kyiv in combatting corruption. The feat is that growing criticism of corruption could ultimately lead Western allies to withdraw their support for Ukraine's fight against Russia's invasion.
