mrgreen: I cross checked lots of stories regarding this event and the only ones that seemed coherent and believable came from Russia. Everything else left out context, history, relevant facts, etc. I've had my doubts about the veracity of mainstream news channels in the past, but my doubts have reached an all-time high with this story.

Putin Disses Poroshenko’s Attempt To Contact Him On Phone: It's Pre-Election Stunt And Manipulation
Putin refuses to play games with Poroshenko. Will Poroshenko come to his sense (doubtful) or will he double-down (disastrous) or will someone within Ukraine put him in his place (hopefully).

Google acknowledges Crimea as Russian
Maps should reflect the reality of a situation, not the wishes of NATO or the USA.

Ukraine elections: Zelensky wins 73% of votes in an overwhelming victory
This might be the beginning of a major shift in the political direction of Ukraine. Then again it might just be a case of "Meet the new boss.... same as the old boss...."

Russian aerobatic teams show off their skills at combat aviation competition in Crimea
It's been more than five years since the annexation of Crimea and it looks like the people of Crimea are quite happy to no longer be part of Ukraine! Who can blame them?

Tucker: Impeachment seemed like a fleeting prospect
The democrats would be stupid to push this issue. It was well-known before the US backed coup in Ukraine which was engineered during the Obama presidency that Biden's son was a major beneficiary of that operation. There is nothing wrong with Trump wanting to get to the bottom of that conspiracy and if the democrats have any sense at all they will not push impeachment since that would necessarily turn into an investigation of US efforts which led up to the coup in Ukraine. That could be embarrassing not only for the democrats, but also for the republicans. There is no denying what happened as there is video evidence still available online. Anyone can put the pieces together with a little investigation.

a2z: I expect the dems to make a lot of noise and possibly even go for a vote in the House of Reps, but when it comes time to push for an investigation they'll make an excuse and just back out of the deal. That way they can make Trump look bad without incriminating themselves. It won't do them much good though because too many people already know what was going on behind the scenes with Biden and the US engineered coup.

Joe Biden is wishing that he would've listened to Barack Obama when he was told he didn't have to run. Now he's getting his family dragged through the mud. Hunter Biden won't survive all his shortfall being exposed. Joe now has to lie to keep his kid out of jail. The ones who got Obummer elected have steered this mess in a direction that guarantees an old white Democrat won't win.

Anything But That!
This is a case where Trump gets his cake and he gets to eat it too. No matter what happens, Trump wins. The Senate won't kick him out of office. Biden will wind up a big loser regardless. The democrats in general will wind up looking stupid. Trump will be able to say "I told you so" about Russiagate. It all works perfectly for Trump and every democrat hope will prove to be a hallucination. It doesn't take a lot of brain power to see how this plays out.

Tucker: Democrats pin their hopes on flimsy 'evidence' :popcorn:
Democrats want to take out two white guys at once. Many democrats don't want to see Biden as their candidate and they don't want to see Trump win a second term. It looks like they don't mind sacrificing Biden in order to get rid of Trump. In fact, getting rid of Biden would be a bonus. This scheme will probably backfire on them, but politics can be insanely unpredictable and so we'll have to just see how things go....
