Yes Russian oligarch banker stands against his own country, what’s new, that’s typical banker behaviour.
Billionaire are self serving
Is there anyone who is merely “right” vs “far right”? Is there anyone who is “far left”? Indeed is there anyone who is “left”?
Trust in the American electoral system was lost it seems !
Okay, so "end" fossil fuels. Now guilt trip the sun over mass ejection and polar shifts!
'Two cheeks of the same arse'-Gore Vidal. I just twitted AOC and asked if she knew how many countries the U S have sanctions on (she wouldn't have a clue). Are they not worried that the U S will sanction itself out of the world? No wonder there is no respect or trust, only fear and mistrust. Now the war hawks from the Republican party will join the Democrats like Liz Chaney & others. Yep, Gore Vidal was right after all. And no wonder the man who published facts and truth is still in prison without charge for over 3 years and six months. Chomsky is right as well, a mafia state.
And they don't want to pay reparations
Hey Amy 🌻

Why do you say farrrrr right, you don’t say farrrrr left, or commies?

So glad abortion is about to be illegal

Starbucks corporate didn't sneak in in the middle of the night with tubes of bed bugs and mold cultures.

I agree with the workers on most everything else… but that ones on them.

Robot–kitty sighting at 07:35 !
The people around Kherson identify as Russian. Those that identify as Ukrainians left long before now when Ukraine told them to leave unless they wanted to be identified as terrorists. Is it really necessary for you to adhere to the government line to call them Ukrainians? If you cannot call them Russians when they identify as Russians, then call them as "terrorists" as the Ukrainian government calls them.
The extermination & expulsion of the Palestinians are inbuilt in Zionism across the board. The difference is Netanyahu is being most honest about it.
