“If we are able to make the deal with Mexico, & there is a good chance that we will, they will begin purchasing Farm & Agricultural products at very high levels, starting immediately,”

WTF is that supposed to even mean? Its gibberish. He threatened sanctions so now Mexicans will buy more soybeans? I think I heard it best not long ago when some talking head said that almost everyone that meets Trump comes away with the feeling that there is something wrong with him.

Don the Con is Putin's, the GOP's and the rest of MAGAtville's useful idiot. That's truly all he is.

And literally 90+% of what comes out of his mouth is complete and total lies, bullshit and utter stupidity.

This is why leaks are soooo important to us, the little people.

The public has a right to know and justice and accountability has to be upheld.

Without leaks we wouldn't have a clue what our governments are up to, as the article below highlights...

Wikileaks had a 100% record of truth telling. Not once has it been discredited factually.

Lulu's prosecutor was being counselled by the judge during the two year duration of his trial. Think about that...

Lulu was found guilty, not surprisingly...this prevented him from standing in the 2018 general election...which Bolsonaro then won.

The judge in question was named Brazils Justice minister by president Bolsonaro shortly after taking power.

Hes far right wing and a strong supporter of all things Israel, which tells you all you need to know about him...and why the US is happy with Brazil again.

A Russian journalist was arrested on drug charges. The backlash has blindsided the Kremlin

So, here you are worried about some journalist you've never heard of before that Don Lemon tells you you should care about, even though he's now been released due to a lack of evidence, but not a peep from you about Assange ??

Thats a frightening revelation, gorkie. WOW.

You really are quite happy being told what to think and being quite public about it, aren't you?

What a pity the US won't take a leaf out of Russia's book and, instead of manufacturing fake charges against Assange, just let the man go due to insufficient evidence.

However misaligned your thought process, you accidentally raise a valid point, gorkie.... although I cannot help thinking you didn't bother to read the article, given the guy has been released, seeing only, like a moth to a flame, the words KREMLIN and BACKLASH.

Thats all you needed to be able to use your now well worn shood haf yoozed zee poyzin line.

But, do you really believe he was released because of some "backlash"??!!

That tends not to cut the mustard in both Russia and Amerika.

Maybe it was that one man protest, with sign, CNN revealed to us, that did it?

You don't think its something as simple as he was released due to a lack of evidence, as the report stated?!!

Theres always a touch of editorial embellishment, when it comes to Russia, I've noticed, in US media, because you have all been brought up to fear Russia and see her as the perfect enemy your country needs to keep its War Economy ticking over. How YOU cannot see this, given your posts, is frankly shocking.

Thanks for sharing the release of this journalist though. As ive said repeatedly here, we need to preserve the sanctity of the Fourth Estate, in order to keep the bastards honest.

"Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev said in a statement the criminal case against Golunov was being dropped due to a lack of evidence of any wrongdoing on his part.He said the journalist would be freed from house arrest later on Tuesday.

Some police officers involved in the case were being temporarily removed from duty pending an investigation, he said, adding that he planned to ask Mr Putin to dismiss other more senior police personnel, including Moscow's Drug Squad Chief


Seems like a very fair and balanced outcome, unlike US cops who kill , primarily black people, with impunity, 24/7 and hardly ever any recourse. That stuff doesn't seem to bother you...


Now what about Assange?

You gonna leave him swinging in solitary or can we expect you to grasp the gravity of all this.... or are you only conditioned to worry about Russian journalists under house arrest?

Strange post my little friend, but a valid one, however misguided you are.

He will probably end up "jumping" off his balcony or killed in "random street violence."

Hey, gorkie and co, who stood strong in their steadfast belief, albeit wrong, that the Russians had dared meddle in your 2018 American election?

I was wondering if you cared to comment on Mike Pompeo, your supposed Secretary of State, during his recent UK trip assuring a group of British Jewish leaders in a closed-door meeting caught on audio tape that the US would work to prevent Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn from becoming prime minister.

“It could be that Mr. Corbyn manages to run the gauntlet and get elected,” he said in the audio clip.

“It’s possible. You should know, we won’t wait for him to do those things to begin to push back. We will do our level best. It’s too risky and too important and too hard once it’s already happened.”


Say it isn't so! The hypocrisy !!

America drymounting with other countries elections, AGAIN, this time in the UK, but FREAKING OUT with over two years of wall to wall media coverage when there's even an insinuation, minus ANY proof whatsoever, that those pesky Russians had meddled in yours.



Meanwhile, back at the ranch, gorkie and co are still upset about Russiagate even with zero, zilch, nada evidence....Twilight Zone stuff if ever there was !!

Literally the opening line of the Mueller report:

The Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion.
