Wondering if 8 straight years of a sizable contingent of heavily armed idiots panicking over the black guy who stole the presidency destroying democracy and declaring himself EMPEROR FOR LIFE might have something to do with it. Not that this alternative is any fucking better, but yeah.

Russian oligarchs like to do lots of business through Cyprus. A bunch of Medvedev's alleged overseas assets are tied through banks and through dummy companies set up in Cyprus by his buddies.

Seems like it might be a good idea to revisit the stuff in the Panama Papers.

I'm sorry for your loss, brug. :(

She spends half her days dissecting dead animals, os. I'd be careful if I were you. :ohdear:
I'd worry more if she spent half her days dissecting live animals.

Well, that is the idea, eventually.

If you're making fun of that adorable little girl, I will seriously for real destroy you.

how in the shit did all these traitors end up in government

They were raised on the childlike fantasy of shrinking government down to the size it can be strangled in the bathtub, decided to skip the shrinking part in favor of destroying it all while profiting, and got voted in by people who either are stupid enough to buy into the fantasy or are tribalists who think of politics as football and as long as MY TEAM wins, fuck yeah. Why should these shitbags care about the rule of law or respect our institutions when the people voting for them don't?

eta there's no need to think that all of these Republicans were bought off or influenced by Russia or anything. Self-interest, pursuit of power, and putting party over country is more than enough to explain the ass-kissing and ass-covering. These pieces of shit don't care how Trump and his buddies got to where they are but they're going to do what they can to hop on the fucking gravy train.

And the Intel Committees meetings are being canceled:

Paul Ryan doesn't think Nunes did anything wrong and doesn't think Nunes needs to step down.

I'm not starting another thread for cute stuff so fucking deal with it

The woman in that photo says she wasn't even a protester: https://themoscowtimes.com/news/and-then-i-suffered-in-her-own-words-olga-lozina-heroine-of-iconic-photo-from-moscow-protests-57544

Finally got around to watching Navalny's video breaking down the insane corrupt network Medvedev uses to hide all the assets he receives at bribes. It has subtitles:

Of course, the day of the protests, Medvedev posted a picture of himself on Instagram showing off his ski vacation. These people have no goddamn shame.

don't sell yourself short.  some of your thoughts are very good.

I'm just trying to save myself the trouble of typing. :v:

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
I'm certainly no expert, but people who are, think NATO is a very important element of American military and diplomatic power.

It absolutely is, and most Americans don't realize it. Humans are idiots and they often don't realize that something actually works pretty well until it stops fucking working, and everything goes to shit.

Yeah, way different on the trial and detention side. Cops are way more corrupt, the courts are a disaster, and the prisons are a nightmare. They still have labor camps, and prisoners are beaten all the time. The high profile dissident prisoners have reported straight up torture and the like.

More footage from Moscow:


This is why we were all warned to avoid contact with any of the OMON fuckers and why I took that warning seriously and crossed the street or changed paths anytime I spotted one in the distance.

Uhhh the Munich Pact? Nazi-Soviet Pact? Just spit-balling here.

Hundreds arrested in Belarus after "unauthorized" protest:
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39393351

The people were protesting the "social parasite" tax, which sounds like Paul Ryan's wet dream. People who are unemployed for 6 months are required to pay the tax. It's meant to encourage "discipline" and prevent "social dependency."

Anti-corruption protests happening all over Russia now:
https://themoscowtimes.com/articles/hundreds-arrested-as-anti-corruption-protests-sweep-russia-57538

There's been zero mention of it on state TV, of course, and at least one reporter has been arrested for "participating in an unauthorized demonstration" in Moscow even though they had press credentials.

They're even arresting teenagers:


His horribly offensive anti-Russia evil sign says "sell the dachas / build roads."



What's most striking about this is that it doesn't look too different from some of the shit we've seen over here.

I love how it's causing existential crises for republican congressmen

If we don't pass this out of the House, this is the beginning of the end for us as a Republican Party.

The Florida reps sound just a little bit depressed.

That's what happens when the job you do is based on an ideology whose leaders have revealed it to be totally morally and intellectually bankrupt.

that's what she said





yeah, yeah, logging out, whatever

I'm sorry. Hoping she turns another corner and starts getting her appetite back. Thinking of you and your little furball kitty.

Politics and Current Events / Re: The Fourth Estate
Guys, a guy I went to high school with and debated in Model Congress/UN was on Samantha Bee's show!

He founded a local paper in New Brunswick after graduating from Rutgers and has become a known muckracker and gadfly. He's been arrested at least twice now on bullshit charges that got dismissed. The cops in particular fucking hate him, and a lot of the local politicians are super rude to him when he shows up to public meetings to ask questions. A few months ago, someone sent him a water meter that suggested people at the water authority were rigging shit, and the cops were all over him trying to get the story quiet.

Anyway, here you go!
