I base the far-left description of him on having read his stuff in The Nation and Rolling Stone and his regular appearances on Democracy Now! and MSNBC. I don’t think far-left is a pejorative and is meant to separate him from the univocally lying mainstream liberal left. I have a lot of respect for those outside of this current liberal political cult. In addition to Taibbi I have respect for: Aaron Mate, Tulsi Gabbard, Max Blumenthal, Stephen Cohen, Michael Tracey, et al.).

Sometimes it is hard to pinpoint the true nationality or origin of the people from Mittel Europa.
Even the term Mittel Europa is subject to disagreement or discussion depending on one's ethnicity in that region or whether one can trace back where his ancestors have migrated from.

She has as much Canadian origin as Ted Cruz :-)

Thanks for the gentle reminder. Age is not kind to some people. Your clarity of response to oldman22 regarding due process as a civil servant is what I was thinking about.



It took a liberal democrat to make that a reality.


Diana C - interesting question regarding Soros. As I clearly recall, following a Bilderberg meeting in Chantilly, VA, Obama was whisked away in a private jet w/Soros on board leaving Hillary behind. Many then suggested Obama was the chosen one so to speak.

I also recall Obama appointing his top bundlers and donors to serve in Ambassadorships rather than promoting from the diplomatic corp.

Lastly, this Ukrainian NABU/Stynik anti-corruption agency and the U.S. Embassy ties needs to be investigated thoroughly. It is my understanding Mr. Soros' anti-corruption NGO in Ukraine was behind Biden's urging for Petroshenko to establish Ukraine's anti-corruption unit aka NABU. It is also my understanding that an employee or more from Soros' NGO staffed the NABU. This detail can be found in Shokin's affidavit, if my memory serves correctly.

Why has there been no mention by any U.S. corporate media of Shokin's affidavit which states clearly he was investigating Soros and his NGO? Biden apparently made certain both Burisma and the Soros investigation were shut down.

So, I'm thinking Diana C, the White House and State Department likely became Soros' private fiefdom.

Larry, this interview with Ukraine's MP Andriy Derkach may be of interest to you - https://en.interfax.com.ua/news/interview/618506.html

Interesting report from JW:

Judicial Watch is investigating if prominent conservative figures, journalists and persons with ties to President Donald Trump were unlawfully monitored by the State Department in Ukraine at the request of ousted U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, an Obama appointee. Yovanovitch testified “in secret” to the House impeachment inquiry against Trump on Friday, October 11, 2019. Her “secret” testimony was leaked to the New York Times during the hearing.

Judicial Watch has obtained information indicating Yovanovitch may have violated laws and government regulations by ordering subordinates to target certain U.S. persons using State Department resources. Yovanovitch reportedly ordered monitoring keyed to the following search terms: Biden, Giuliani, Soros and Yovanovitch. Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the State Department and will continue gathering facts from government sources.

Prior to being recalled as ambassador to Ukraine in the spring Yovanovitch reportedly created a list of individuals who were to be monitored via social media and other means. Ukraine embassy staff made the request to the Washington D.C. headquarters office of the department’s Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs. After several days, Yovanovitch’s staff was informed that the request was illegal and the monitoring either ceased or was concealed via the State Department Global Engagement Center, which has looser restrictions on collecting information...

Thank you for your response to my question. I am late getting back to your very helpful answer.

Whenever there is a discussion that includes actions by the State--The Secretary of State and all--I become nervous. I like feeling that I am a citizen of the United States, not a citizen of some nebulous, nefarious international group of extremely wealthy and possibly evil people.

I am not saying your reply eased my mind about that, but did make me feel more inclined always to trust my heart and my gut reactions.
