Trump’s Russia Connection
Remember when Trump was a business partner with the Russian government and his company got $53 million from the Russian government investment fund called Rusnano which was started by Vladimir Putin and is referred to as “Putin’s Child?” Oh wait, that wasn’t Trump; it was John Podesta.
Remember when Trump received $500,000 for a speech in Moscow paid for by Renaissance Capital, a company tied to Russian Intelligence Agencies? Oh wait, that was Bill Clinton.
Remember when Trump approved the sale of 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russians while he was Secretary of State which gave control of it to Rosatom the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation? Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton.
Remember when Trump lied about that and said he wasn’t a part of approving the deal that gave the Russians 1/5 of our uranium, but then his e-mails were leaked showing he did lie about it? Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton and John Podesta.
Remember when Trump got $145 million from shareholders of the uranium company sold to the Russians? Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.
Remember when Trump accepted millions in donations from Russian oligarchs like the Chairman of a company that’s part of the Russian Nuclear Research Cluster, the wife of the mayor of Moscow, and a close pal of Putin’s? Oh wait, that was the Clinton Foundation.
Remember when Trump failed to disclose all those donations before becoming the Secretary of State, and it was only found out when a journalist went through Canadian tax records? Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton.
Remember when Trump told Mitt Romney that the ‘80s called and it wanted its Russian policy back, the Cold War is over? Oh wait, that was Barack Obama.
Man, aren’t Trump’s ties to Russia disgusting and reasons for investigation?
Is that a Lobster Roll?
To my point, a lobster roll with a ramekin of garlic butter to dip the end into before you bite is one of the things that will take hours or maybe minutes off your life. It’s not good for you.
I’m waiting for the federal government to outlaw them.

The Money Hemmorage
(zerohedge) Just when the world (or rather, the US) was finally coming around to the notion that the COVID pandemic might be over, the White House has offered the latest reminder that this is simply not the case. As COVID cases surge in the US, White House COVID response coordinator Ashish Jha said Sunday morning that the Biden Administration will need to authorize another $20 billion+ in COVID spending to pay for the next round of shots needed to stop another brutal winter wave later this year.
Specifically, Jha called on Congress to approve $22.5 billion, a number that will help the federal government replenish its dwindling vaccine supply. If it doesn’t the US “is going to run out of treatments…we’re going to run out of testing.”
Fortunately, at-home tests are available at most pharmacies in the US these days.
