Paul would have a hard time understanding the difference between a 2 year old saying "I'm gonna kill you" with a 20 year old with a knife at your throat saying "I'm gonna kill you".
But, but, but - the words are the EXACT same!!!
Poor Paul - I knew it was he as those were the same words he has posted so many times.
Just as Marley was doomed to drag around the chains he forged in life, so Paul is doomed to drag around all the dead equines he has acquired in his life.
So many dead ones to whip - so little time.
The Putin Cuddling horse rotted to the point of just a dusty bag of bones inside the desiccated skin of some old nag.

Paul at 6:42 - How about sharing your views, Paul?
Showing up here to always ask, but never answer questions make you appear to be a total dick.

Walt

Thanks Gregory for the extra info. Didn't know about the syn. oil end of things... Now I do. So good old dinosaur blood is the way to go.

Gregory

Punchy,

It doesn't meet the Constitutional definition of treason, but I'd say the attempted extraconstitutional negation of an honest and fair election in accordance with Federal and all state laws is pretty f'ing bloody close.

Bill Tozer

Look in the sky. Its a bird, its a plane, its Gregory! Good job, Gregory.

Walt: The SPD Saw Shop told me last year that CA gas should not be older than 30 days...dump it out, do not use per factory recommendations. I used stablizer to save the gas mux once over winter and it worked fine. Now I buy just 1-2 gallons at a time and drain them out and put the mix in the old beater

Walt

So Paul still thinks trying to overthrow an election with manufactured evidence is fine and dandy. Not TREASON in Paul's book.

Go ahead Paul,, push for impeachment.. Go for it LIBS!! It will come back to bite you in the ass. So Tell us,, just how will the Senate vote on that?
And not a damned one of you can even state the crime that Trump has done.(never mind the lack of any evidence.)

Paul Emery

Thanks for agreeing with me Gregory that Trump does not understand what Treason is.

Walt

Yup,, Cal fuel is garbage. I got tired of replacing carburetors
on all my small engines. If not the carb. the fuel lines and any push pumps dissolved every other year.
Started getting avgas a few years back.

Good job LIBS,, your ECO gas ain't so "ECO".
Good luck getting your elec. weed eaters to do the same job...
Now how many batt.s you need to buy to get through the day?
Good luck with that.

Walt

Paul.. Your Queen said Trump is involved in a cover up...
Just what did he cover up?
That accusation sure went far. Desperation setting in?

Paul Emery

I mean Gregory shouldn't we expect the President of the United States to know the legal meaning of Treason before he accuses at least four people of it?

Don Bessee

Russ

OMG, can you smell the dead houses Paul keeps dragging in here? Pass the Airwick!

Russ

Paul Emery

Russ

Wouldn't you expect Trump, the President of the United States no less, of knowing the meaning of Treason before he accuses at least four people of being guilty of it?

Gregory

The dictionary definition of treason is


n.
The betrayal of allegiance toward one's own country, especially by committing hostile acts against it or aiding its enemies in committing such acts.
n.
The betrayal of someone's trust or confidence.
n.
A betraying; treachery; breach of faith.


Yep, it sure fits.

Paul, your "thanks for agreeing with me" shtick is getting old. Especially since it's NEVER true.

Paul Emery

Pathetic response Gregory-dictionary defination-really. You can do better than that. The definition of Treason as defined by law is:

"Definition: In Article III, Section 3 of the United States Constitution, treason is specifically limited to levying war against the US, or adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. Conviction requires two witnesses or a confession in open court.[2]

Penalty: U.S. Code Title 18: Death,[8] or not less than 5 years' imprisonment and not more than life imprisonment without the possibility of parole (minimum fine of $10,000, if not sentenced to death). Any person convicted of treason against the United States will permanently lose the right to ever hold or run for public office anywhere in any capacity within the United States.[9][10]

Can you show me where the Trump accused have violated these laws?

Gregory

Here's another take on treason:

"Anyone that does not believe that the Russians have tons of personal information about Trump and his associates are hopelessly naive and don't have a clue about international espionage. How can you possibly imagine they don't? Totally explains Trumps ass kissing and cuddling of Putin. Some might call it treason. Of course some of you might not consider Russia an enemy but that's another question. George, you of all people with your Estonian heritage should be especially concerned.

Definition of treason

"The betrayal of one's own country by waging war against it or by consciously or purposely acting to aid its enemies."

Posted by: Paul Emery | 04 June 2017 at 10:45 AM

Scott O

Paul nails it!
"...treason is specifically limited to levying war against the US, or adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort."
Anyone trying to negate an national election for POTUS by means of lying and subterfuge would certainly be an enemy of the US.
So - I assume Paul will be working for Trump's re-election?
Or would he side with America's enemies?
We know that China and Russia are our enemies - and who's been making financial deals with their govts?
Oh - that's right - Democrats.
Good to see Paul has seen the light and will become a Republican.

Scott O

"Of course some of you might not consider Russia an enemy..."
Only the Dems, Paul, only the Dems.

Thanks for re-posting my piece Gregory. I appreciate it.

Walt

Paul just got his pony tail handed to him. And all he can do is say thanks for getting his own words used against him.

Good job Emery. With logic like yours, LIBS will help get Trump re-elected.
You pal Biden has plenty to answer for. His boy has taken PLENTY of money from those Russians. They vary same ones you accuse Trump of dealing with.
Have fun explaining that away.

George Rebane

We've circled the 'treason barn' several times before. Clearly, the word is bandied about by both sides in a wide variety of situations and contexts. Every now and then TV talking heads take up the matter without resolution. My approach in these things is to give my own definition of it so readers can understand my use of it in a commentary. This has been my practice for poorly understood words and concepts since I was taught it, beginning as a freshman studying physics.

If you have a specific definition of 'treason' and would like to use it to assess the correctness of its public uses by various people, then that would be a helpful contribution. Else, just asking people whether this or that utterance of treason was appropriate, appears as a preamble for another boring gotcha game.

Scott O

"If you have a specific definition of 'treason' and would like to use it to assess the correctness of its public uses by various people, then that would be a helpful contribution."
It's simple, George - anything Trump or the Rs do is treason.
And anyone on the left is incapable of treason.
Now, back to our show...

The crime is sedition- the domestic version of treason where the beneficiary is not a foreign power, but one's self. This describes the thirty of so 'coupsters.'

L

or so, not of. Glad to see Paul's ok- he actually disappeared a couple of days ahead of the welcome ozzcott, and I was starting to think ol' scratch mighta caught up with him, but no.

L

Kinda surprised Trump isn't more aware of his real enemies. McCabe, Rosenstein, Comey, et al so far named aren't really even central figures in the coup attempt. At dead center (cui bono?) HRC. Comey doesn't let her walk on his own nickel; not even Lynch would have the stones to do that, only Obama had the horsepower to let this happen. Clapper, Brennan and (their final throw) Mueller are fare more culpable than Trump's nominees. Page, Strozk, Orrs, etc about thirty in all should see some serious prison time for sedition (see above).

L

And before you ask, Paul, yes, Hillary should be locked up most of all. OF ALL!

Perhaps treason is not the accurate word in legal terms. Abuse of power will be the charges most face, along with obstruction of justice, leaking.classifoed materials, perjury, conspircy, etc. Make no mistake that Abuse of Power will be the easyist charge to get convictions on.
Bottomline: the defendants will owe millions more in legal fees than they ever earned in their lives. They will be broke and forced to move in with relatives when this is all said and done. The Feds will keep coming at them over and over again until they are destitude, at a minimum.
Then Congress will revoke their pensions of the convicted ones. This is one of the biggest scandals in US history. Makes Watergate look like Romper Room. Right up there with Presidential assasinations.

BTW, the laws handling Classified Materials are one of the few on the books that remove intent from the equation. Just possessing classified docs outside of an approved server/setting is Gross Neligence. Just transmitting/coping them on a non-gov't approved system is quilty. Remember the sailor on the sub whotook a selfie on himself to send to his sweetie with the sub's screen in the background? He has been in prison a long time.

George Rebane

BillT 910am - Yes, this is perhaps the most recent and egregious comparison of what Crooked Hillary has been able to get away with all of her life, with what happens to rest of us poor schmucks when we run afoul of the Deep State. It is simply another piece of existential evil that only Leviathan can and will gratuitously perpetrate in its normal mode of existence.

Are you in support of a public hanging of Hillary as proposed by L?

Bill Tozer

It’s tempting to make Peter the fall guy. But we know it is so much bigger than one agent who spearheaded the Clinton e-mail probe, wrote out Comey’s Gross Negligence draft, then spearheaded the Russian Collusion Delusion. More details dribble in,

“Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox News on Thursday:

“There was a defensive briefing of candidate Trump on Aug. 17 of 2016. And I can tell you what he wasn't told: He wasn't warned about a Russia investigation that Peter Strzok had opened 18 days earlier.

“Why would Peter Strzok, who would participate at Jim Comey's direction in a defensive briefing designed to protect and warn a candidate, be the same person who is in fact at that time already investigating the candidate's campaign? That shouldn't happen. There should be answers to those questions.”

https://www.dailywire.com/news/47868/breaking-new-damaging-info-comes-out-disgraced-fbi-ryan-saavedra?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=dwbrand

The above is not breaking news. All this stuff has been out there for a couple of years.
From Dec. 18, 2017.

“That text is dated August 15, 2016. Strzok texted Page, “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in [deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe’s] office that there's no way he gets elected -- but I'm afraid we can't take that risk. It's like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you're 40…”

“This looks an awful lot like motivation for launching an investigation into Trump in order to sink Trump as a hedge against Trump’s victory. The FBI’s investigation into Russian governmental interference in the election began in July 2016, just weeks before Strzok’s text message. And that means that there is now more of a smoking gun of FBI corruption against Trump than there is of Trump colluding with Russia.

“How can Mueller come back from that? He’s fired Strzok and Page, but if the investigation was initially a political hit job, how can it now turn into something good and decent, particularly in the absence of a smoking gun regarding collusion? It’s not just that this is fruit of the poisonous tree — there’s no fruit to show, just the poisonous tree. And as Victor Davis Hanson has written, the Mueller team is filled top-to-bottom with political activists who have a specific anti-Trump agenda.

“All of which means that President Trump isn’t wrong to suspect that Mueller wants to aim for a political skull-blow against him. Trump could theoretically use these texts as a reason for firing Mueller altogether — and that wouldn’t be completely unjustified. It would be politically unwise. At this point, Trump’s best tactic is to sit tight — now, no matter what, half the country is going to believe that Mueller’s investigation was never motivated by truth. That’s a win for Trump, and an automatic loss for Mueller.”

Well,,, SPILL IT!!! No one is stopping you from "getting the facts out".. Maybe just a little problem about actually having any facts?

"House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said Friday “there certainly is” justification for Congress to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump, but said it was critical for the American public to agree before launching the process.

During an interview on WNYC, Nadler, whose committee would lead impeachment proceedings, cautioned the move, noting the importance of having the American public on board first.

“Impeachment is a political act, and you cannot impeach a president if the American people will not support it,” said Nadler, D-N.Y. “The American people, right now, do not support it because they do not know the story. They don’t know the facts.” "

They keep saying they have some.. Yet not one LIB has produced any.

Don Bessee

Go ahead, make my day -

The new poll, which was conducted after special counsel Robert Mueller's statement on Wednesday, has several other warning signs for Democrats agitating to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump.

Sixty-eight percent of voters said Democrats in Congress should accept Mueller's finding that there was no criminal conspiracy and 65 percent said Democrats should accept Attorney General William Barr's conclusion that the president did not obstruct justice.

Sixty-three percent of voters said the investigations into Trump are hurting the country. Fifty-eight percent of voters said it's time for Congress to turn the page on the Russia investigations.
That could be a tough sell for the Democratic base, as a plurality of Democrats, 25 percent, said impeaching Trump should be the top priority for the Democratic majority in the House, followed by 18 percent who said the party should focus on shoring up ObamaCare and 14 percent who said Democrats should prioritize stimulating the economy.

That's what you get for fiddling with search results to suppress free speech -

The Justice Department is gearing up for an antitrust investigation of Alphabe t Inc.’s Google, a move that could present a major new layer of regulatory scrutiny for the search giant, according to people familiar with the matter.

The department’s antitrust division in recent weeks has been laying the groundwork for the probe, the people said. The Federal Trade Commission, which shares antitrust authority with the department, previously conducted a broad antitrust investigation of Google but closed it in 2013 without taking action, though Google made some voluntary changes to certain business practices.
The FTC and the department have been in talks recently on who would oversee any new antitrust investigation of a leading U.S. tech giant, and the commission agreed to give the Justice Department jurisdiction over Google, the people said.

With turf now settled, the department is preparing to closely examine Google’s business practices related to its search and other businesses, the people said.

It couldn’t immediately be learned whether Google has been contacted by the department. Third-party critics of the search giant, however, already have been in talks with Justice Department officials, some of the people familiar with the matter said.

LAPD’s Central Division is in the heart of Skid Row. It appears the troubled areas problems are, in this case, stemming from inside the building.

The LAPD says an employee at that station contracted salmonella typhi, which typically comes from infected food or water.

A second employee is believed to have now contracted the same thing.

CBS2/KCAL9 has obtained an OSHA report citing the LAPD for an unclean work area. The report cited, among other things, “the presence of rats/rodents, fleas, roaches, flies gnats, mosquitoes and grasshoppers” at the LAPD Central Community Police Station.

This isn’t the first time rats have infested a city building.

Polling says Resistance is futile. Trump is DOA in 2020. Put a fork in it. Surrender Dorothy. Biden all the way.

“Who wants to vote for women who eat salad with combs and abuse their staff, or tannish women who clawed their way to fame and fortune the old-fashioned way by sleeping with married kingmaker politicians, or a gay mayor of an unlivable city who thinks America isn’t all that great now or ever, or a semi-hysterical Spartacus impressionist?

“Any of these Intersectional Slot-Fillers would be but minor footnotes in history against Trump. Kind of like George McGovern without the gravitas and military service. Plus, I think even though McGovern had some mildly silly planks in his platform, I never knew him to be anything but a sweet South Dakota guy, whereas the 2020 crop of Democrat contenders are mostly snarling, vicious, hateful snipers or rich, senile totalitarians. Or both.

“This is the first prong in the Left’s 3-prong strategy to undo the 2016 election disaster: keep doing fake polls that prove to regular Americans that they might as well stay home because there is no hope. It’s over. America lovers: DO NOT FALL FOR THIS.

“The Mueller report left out the part where the Trump’s attorney specifically asked for information that was not confidential. Mueller’s report strings along sections of the voicemail to give one impression.

“This is the second example of selective editing in the Mueller report that we know about so far. The Daily Wire previously reported that important context was left out of a text-message exchange between former Trump attorney Michael Cohen and a Georgian-American businessman. The businessman, Giorgi Rtskhiladze, sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr demanding a footnote be retracted from the Mueller report misrepresenting his conversation.”

Someone wised up,, knowing they didn't have a chance in heaven to beat Trump.
https://dailycaller.com/2019/06/01/larry-hogan-maryland-president/
"Republican Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said Saturday morning he will not challenge President Donald Trump for the GOP 2020 nomination.

“I’m not going to be a candidate for president in 2020,” Hogan said in an interview with The Washington Post.


Trump’s Republican critics have worked to entice Hogan into jumping into the crowded 2020 race. Hogan acknowledged the president’s growing popularity inside the Republican Party, but said he wants to focus on being Maryland’s governor.

“I have a commitment to the 6 million people of Maryland and a lot of work to do, things we haven’t completed,” he said.

Hogan’s decision is a potential mortal wound to the so-called “Never Trump” wing of the Republican Party, a contingent of commentators and former politicians such as Bill Kristol and former Ohio governor John Kasich."

MEXICO CITY, June 1 (Reuters) - Mexico's president on Saturday hinted his country could tighten migration controls to defuse U.S. President Donald Trump's threat to impose tariffs on Mexican goods, and said he expected "good results" from talks planned in Washington next week.

BT at 5:06 - As a long time reader of the Chron (and subscriber for years) I'm well acquainted with the Fun, Fun times of Willie B and his buddies in the legis and at parties. Never forgot the time he had a bit of a to-do in Sac-town with his Jaguar and the press figured out it was him immediately. Seems the DMV thought since you drove around in public with a govt issued license plate, the public had a right to know who the car belonged to, being on public property and all.
As he was the speaker of the Assembly at the time, a new law was passed in about 2 minutes that the DMV couldn't do that no mo.
I well remember Kamie when she was his latest squeeze. She was definitely shacked up with him, but at the time it was all ho-hum. She made the best of it, for sure, but the Dems will play it down forever.
If Willie Brown had been white and lived in Chicago, he would have been Daley. He played both sides of the street when it suited him financially or politically. He had street smarts and charm. He was intelligent but totally Machiavellian. Since he was a Dem, the press fawned all over him, even when they knew he was being an ass. Kamala chose well when she decided to sleep her way into power. They make a perfectly matched couple. Although I don't see her having his political touch.
But she's close.

This sandbox stinks as badly as the real one down the hall.

It strikes me that we've been regaled with a certain young man's grooming for college for years, with Master Pelline's being dragged to visit college campuses from sea to shining sea... but it's coming down to the wire. His senior year in high school is arriving. Time to sign up for his first sitting for the SAT (if he hasn't already)! Soon it will be time to narrow down the choices for college and apply. Will it be Harvard or MIT? Stanford? UC Merced? Chico State? Sierra College?

I can't wait to vicariously experience the proud dad's living vicariously through his son.

The masters of the universe are coming for you if you fail to comply -

The Daily Beast recently doxed a black, working-class Trump supporter for the crime of creating a parody video of Democrat speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi. But there’s more to the story — it appears Facebook may have helped the left-wing journalists identify him.

The video was posted to Facebook anonymously by the Trump supporter, who the Daily Beast identified as Shawn Brooks, a black forklift driver and Trump supporter from the Bronx.
By doxing Brooks, The Daily Beast followed the example of CNN, which threatened to unmask an anonymous Trump supporter over a parody video, forcing to him apologize in exchange for not revealing his identity. The scandal caused “CNNBlackmail” to trend on Twitter.

But there’s another aspect to the Daily Beast story which has major implications for the privacy of Facebook users — according to the Daily Beast reporter himself, Facebook gave him information on Brooks’ activity on the platform.

I concur with the author. We judge a man on his totality of his life. Short version:

“These ideas seem to have gone by the wayside as people are valued by their sex, race, religion, and political beliefs to an extreme degree in the modern age. Regardless of the validity of modern accusations against heroes of the past, it is important to remember the gravity of the good work that was done.

“Should King’s legacy and extraordinary work in the advancement and establishment of civil rights for all Americans come under fire because of these 50-year-old FBI documents, we will all lose.“

Sounds deliberate -

The article by the Times tells the tale of the losing side in great detail providing vital information of the self-defense group including their names, photographs, locations of their homes, the vehicle that one of them uses, and even the photographs of the two daughters of one individual. “If they were a nuisance for the MS13 gang, now they are a special target,” Martinez wrote.
One of the women featured in the story told the Honduran publication that she never gave them consent to print their name or take their photographs. “I didn’t even know when he took them (photographs. That man has put a price on my head,” she said.

The writer from Contra Corriente wrote to Azam Ahmed asking telling him that he was looking into why faces and names were used for the story and the response from the writer was “HAHAHAHA” followed by another email days later where Ahmed claimed to not know how that email sent itself. The Times communications team told Martinez that everyone in the story had given consent and the news outlet followed all journalistic standards. The photographs that showed certain faces have since been removed, but days after the story was wildly shared in Honduras.

Maybe Don posted this yesterday, but it is quite disturbing.

"We have to make sure that housing is being legislated as a human right," Ocasio-Cortez arrogantly stated. "What does that mean? What it means is that our access and our ability and our guarantee to having a home comes before someone else’s privilege to earn a profit."

“....When we talk about our right to a clean home, when we talk about retrofitting buildings, what we're talking about is cleaning our air and cleaning our water because when we talk about what housing as a right means, it doesn't mean that you have a right to four crumbling walls and a dirty floor."

"What it means is that we all have a right to dignified housing, good heat, responsible structures, low noise, clean air, and clean water at an affordable price! At an affordable price!" Ocasio-Cortez ranted.”

The day before the above post:

“Anthony Vitaliano — an Army veteran who worked in the NYPD for 38 years, and commanded the Bronx’s homicide detectives — was sitting between Ocasio-Cortez and a staffer for the freshman Dem.

“I just couldn’t hear her BS anymore,” the former CB11 chairman said. “I just got up, got my umbrella in my hand and walked right out.”

The LIBS tried that already. Giving a loan to all comers, and the GOV guaranteeing those loans.
So does that "right" to a "clean" home come with a gov. supplied housekeeper?(gotta put the illegals somewhere) To damned lazy to pick up after yourself?

If housing is so pricey, you can blame a damned Liberal. THEY are the ones who love to impose all the costs in getting a home built.
From the permit fees, to how it's constructed, and where.

Well, maybe the millennials aren’t as dumb as I thought. You don’t need a degree for that kind of work anyway. I know two folks (one on the East Coast and one on the West Coast) that work as journalists for major publications and neither one of them every took a single journalism course. :)

“College graduates working in newsrooms earn way less money than college grads in other fields. Add that to the dismal public image of the journalism industry and it is understandable why talented young Americans eschew media careers. No sensible college graduate today wants to take a vow of poverty to pursue a career that friends and relatives look down upon.”....

“Media credibility has suffered in part because of the blurring of lines between reporting and commentary. There is a solid place in journalism for analysis, editorializing and advocacy, but audiences increasingly sense those functions have blended into fact-based, non-partisan reporting. When citizens see that merger of reporting and commentary, their confidence in journalism takes a hit and they migrate to “news” outlets that fit with their personal ideologies.

“The pool of future news crusaders was supposed to have been boosted after the election of President Trump in 2016. Journalism schools initially reported a surge of new enrollees, most presumably wanting to win reporting prizes by digging into Trumpism. Indeed, the news industry needs aggressive and devoted reporters, but the news industry doesn’t lack for anti-Trump warriors. What the news profession does lack is reporters who go where facts lead and know that fairness is a skill.

“Whatever “Trump bump” journalism schools might have seen two years ago has apparently disappeared. Going to college on emotion, absorbing debt, and then going into a career field in decline has caused reality to set in for many of the “save the world” journalism enrollees of the post-election era.

“The broad marketplace is speaking to the journalism industry and the industry is apparently not listening. News consumers want more objective news of substance that clearly separates factual content from advocacy. Prospective journalism employees seek careers in which they can take pride and earn competitive wages. The big media corporate executives who shoulder responsibility for preserving the nation’s free press functions need to do some soul-searching about how to save the imperiled industry. And the discussions need to include people from outside their corporate towers.”

The masters of the universe kiss chi com ass -

Twitter has suspended a large number of Chinese-language user accounts, including those belonging to critics of China’s government. It seems like a particularly ill-timed move, occurring just days before thirtieth anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre on June 4.

“A large number of Chinese @Twitter accounts are being suspended today,” wrote Yaxue Cao, founder and editor of the U.S.-based publication China Change. “They ‘happen’ to be accounts critical of China, both inside and outside China.”
Cao then went on to highlight a number of the suspended accounts in a Twitter thread.

This will be hard for Paul to take. We know how he gets when polls get trashed by reality.
https://dailycaller.com/2019/06/02/populists-australia-india-uk/
"Pollsters worldwide lost face as the right-wing populists in each nation outperformed their projected gains.
Anti-establishment victories across Europe managed to pull enough seats from the ruling parties to break up the 40-year-old coalition governing the European Parliament."

"Polling pointed to a disaster for Australia’s right-leaning Liberal-National Coalition in the federal election held May 18.
Not only did the Liberal-National Coalition retain power; it gained seats in Parliament and earned an outright majority, with 77 seats, the Guardian reported."

And it gets worse from there for the tea leaf readers.

The thing is, most people love their home nation.(LIBS are the exception here They want to turn it into something it's never supposed to be.)

"It's not normal, is it? It's not OK. And we owe it to you, we owe it to anybody who's in school, and for that matter their teachers ... to make sure that that safety is there," the South Bend, Ind., mayor said at a campaign stop in California."

Reality check for comrade bernies socialist paradise. Socialist solidarity ends when you can not pay our bill. No more little green men for you beotch. -

Russia has withdrawn key defense advisers from Venezuela, an embarrassment for President Nicolás Maduro as Moscow weighs the leader’s political and economic resilience against growing U.S. pressure.

The gradual pullout, which has escalated over the last several months, according to people familiar with the situation, is due to a lack of new contracts and the acceptance that Mr. Maduro’s regime no longer has the cash to continue to pay for other Rostec services associated with past contracts.

Russia has been among Maduro’s biggest international supporters, but the winding down of Rostec’s presence shows the limits of Russia’s reach in the South American country at a time when Moscow is facing economic difficulties—in part due to the impact of U.S. sanctions—at home. Venezuela has been one of Moscow’s largest customers in South America.

Did like his addendum:

Now and then it’s worth sharing the vile e-mails I get from Trump haters. Here’s a fairly typical one, including homophobic slurs.

Reader Jeff Putterman writes: “Were you born to two morons, or did you do a lot of drugs when you were younger?

“You should go back to sucking Trump’s tiny penis, and keep the writing to people who can think. Rot in Hell, you lowlife a–hole.”

Substantive and persuasive, right?

“One of the ironies today is that people are saying that it’s President Trump that’s shredding our institutions. I really see no evidence of that . . . From my perspective the idea of resisting a democratically elected president and basically throwing everything at him and you know, really changing the norms on the grounds that we have to stop this president, that is where the shredding of our norms and our institutions is occurring.”
-AG Barr

That is also my position as a LIB. Follow the f'ing law. DEMs, you might not like TRUMP but the Clinton campaign helped select him as the candidate Hillary could beat, a "Pied Piper" that would lead the GOP to ruin.

Yes, I understand, you didn't actually want him to win. Tough.
