Putin and Trump and Ukraine and Russia


Did you ever wonder what Putin and Trump agreed in those "private" meetings that Trump made sure were off the record, and Trump's National Security staff were kept out of.

So what would Trump do in 2024 ...

Did Trump have two agenda items when he withheld "aid" to Ukraine?

NATO Bombing : History in Europe 1999 - Wikipedia

 NATO Bombing 1999

The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) carried out an aerial bombing campaign against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia during the Kosovo War. The air strikes lasted from 24 March 1999 to 10 June 1999. The bombings continued until an agreement was reached that led to the withdrawal of Yugoslav armed forces from Kosovo, and the establishment of the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo, a UN peacekeeping mission in Kosovo. The official NATO operation code name was Operation Allied Force whereas the United States called it Operation Noble Anvil;[26] in Yugoslavia the operation was incorrectly called Merciful Angel (SerbianМилосрдни анђео / Milosrdni anđeo) as a result of a misunderstanding or mistranslation.[27]

NATO's intervention was prompted by Yugoslavia's bloodshed and ethnic cleansing of Albanians, which drove the Albanians into neighbouring countries and had the potential to destabilize the region. Yugoslavia's actions had already provoked condemnation by international organisations and agencies such as the UN, NATO, and various INGOs.[28][29] Yugoslavia's refusal to sign the Rambouillet Accords was initially offered as justification for NATO's use of force.[30] NATO countries attempted to gain authorisation from the UN Security Council for military action, but were opposed by China and Russia, who indicated that they would veto such a measure. As a result, NATO launched its campaign without the UN's approval, stating that it was a humanitarian interventionThe UN Charter prohibits the use of force except in the case of a decision by the Security Council under Chapter VII, or self-defence against an armed attack – neither of which were present in this case.[31]

By the end of the war, the Yugoslavs had killed 1,500[32] to 2,131 combatants,[33] while choosing to heavily target Kosovar Albanian civilians, with 8,676 killed or missing[33] and some 848,000 expelled from Kosovo.[34] The NATO bombing killed about 1,000 members of the Yugoslav security forces in addition to between 489 and 528 civilians. It destroyed or damaged bridges, industrial plants, hospitals, schools, cultural monuments, private businesses as well as barracks and military installations. In the days after the Yugoslav army withdrew, over 164,000 Serbs and 24,000 Roma left Kosovo. Many of the remaining non-Albanian civilians (as well as Albanians perceived as collaborators) were victims of abuse which included beatings, abductions, and murders.[35][36][37][38][39] After Kosovo and other Yugoslav Wars, Serbia became home to the highest number of refugees and IDPs (including Kosovo Serbs) in Europe.[40][41][42]

The bombing was NATO's second major combat operation, following the 1995 bombing campaign in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was the first time that NATO had used military force without the expressed endorsement of the UN Security Council[citation needed], which triggered debates over the legitimacy of the intervention.

WI GOP wants to do away with the Governor!? How to make a little, small VOS essentially the Governor from the WI Assembly.

Do you really think a person like VOS, who is accountable to a very small part of the State of Wisconsin should be the "effective" co-governor of the state with his counterpart in the State of Wisconsin Senate.

His district is gerrymandered to keep him in office and he does represent the majority of people, let alone voters in the State.

This would be like making one Alderperson from Madison or Green Bay the effective Mayor of those cities.  The Alderperson does not represent all of the citizens of the city.  It is not "democracy".

Would you prefer a Recession?

Inflation is a personal experience.  The price of gas.  How and how far you commute to work.  The price of bread.  How much and how often is your personal inflation rate and after the purchase do you have any discretionary income. 

Discretionary income is what a household or individual has to invest, save, or spend after necessities are paid.

I doubt that Musk or Bezos or even Putin notice.  A recession is uniformly experienced by the economically disadvantaged or those about to become uniformly disadvantaged - the bottom half of the income distribution - not the wealthy!

The economic narratives we hear don't really tell us the right story.  The number of jobs available and the resistance of those from returning to work tells us what the pandemic has taught us.

Wisconsins Fraudulent Electors: Vos Must Know ... Gableman too?


POLITICS & GOVERNMENT VOTING COMMENTARY We must hold Wisconsin’s fraudulent electors accountable Wisconsin is the epicenter of the struggle to preserve American democracy. Jeffrey Mandell JEFFREY MANDELL JANUARY 6, 2022 7:00 AM Wisconsin Examiner

Weeks earlier, when the Electoral College met in each state, 10 Wisconsinites chose to commit fraud. While the electors chosen by the people met in public and cast Wisconsin’s votes in accordance with the election results, they skulked in the shadows and met in secrecy. These 10 Wisconsinites — including then-Chair of the state Republican Party Andrew Hitt and Wisconsin Elections Commissioner Robert Spindell — met somewhere in the Wisconsin Capitol and signed papers purporting to cast Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes for the losing candidate. In doing so, they broke the law. Wisconsin, like every other state, statutorily pledges to cast its electoral votes for the candidate who wins the popular vote statewide. These fraudulent electors disregarded that fundamental principle of our democracy and of Wisconsin law. They also seem to have violated Wisconsin laws prohibiting forgery, falsely assuming to act as public officers, misconduct in public office, and conspiracy to commit criminal acts, possibly among others. They may well have also violated federal law.
