NY Time’s Stealth-edits Hillary Clinton’s accusation that Tulsi Gabbard is being groomed by ̶R̶u̶s̶s̶i̶a̶n̶s̶ Republicans

No citation, no explanation, no statement of a correction. This is the propaganda machine that the NY Times has become.

If you oppose endless war in the Middle East, you are a Russian agent. And the NY Times will run cover for you only when the accusation becomes too ridiculous.

Commentary by a shocked Tim Pool:

Ukraine Burisma Story is Massive – Involves BILLIONS of IMF and US Funds Looted and Lost by Bank Connected to Burisma Holdings!

The real scandal involves billions in funds from the IMF and US in aid that has gone missing.

Burisma (Ukraine’s largest oil and gas provider) has been the subject of many recent news articles because of its scandalous close-knit ties with President Obama’s Vice President Biden and Secretary of State Kerry. (Yes, Kerry is involved here too)

A controlling shareholder of Burisma is believed to be held by an entity called Privat Group:

The Privat Group, or PrivatBank Group (Ukrainian: Група “Приват”, Grupa “Privat”) is a global business group, based in Ukraine. Privat Group controls thousands of companies of virtually every industry in Ukraine, the European Union, Georgia, Ghana, Russia, the United States and other countries. Steel, oil & gas, chemical and energy are sectors of the group’s prime influence and expertise. None of the group’s capital is publicly traded on any stock exchange.

Privat Group is controlled by Ukraine’s largest commercial bank, PrivatBank, whose owner was Igor Kolomoisky. PrivatBank was later nationalized by the Ukraine in December 2016, taking 100% control of the PrivatBank entity, a month after the 2016 US election….

According to reports:

> Ihor Valeriyovych Kolomoyskyi is a Ukrainian Jewish billionaire business oligarch and the former Governor of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast. Kolomoyskyi is rated as the second or third richest person in Ukraine since 2006. and 377th richest person in the world according to the Forbes magazine list of billionaires.” “The transliteration of Ihor Kolomoyskyi’s name into English has numerous variants including Igor, or Ihor for his first name, and Kolomoyskyi, Kolomoysky, Kolomoisky, Kolomoiskiy, or Kolomoyskiy for his surname.” “Kolomoyskyi is rated as the second or third richest person in Ukraine (after Rinat Akhmetov and/or Viktor Pinchuk) since 2006.”

As noted in prior posts, Kolomoisky purchased a private military consisting of mainly military and police forces who were also employed by the Ukrainian Government. Kolomoisky is credited with stopping the forward progression of Russian separatists via the use of his private military.

> The international financial agency had rushed the money to Ukraine in April, in response to what IMF managing director Christine Lagarde called a “major crisis.” She went on to hail the government’s “unprecedented resolve” in developing a “bold economic program to secure macroeconomic and financial stability.” Over the next five months the international agency poured the equivalent of $4.51 billion ($2.97 billion in “Special Drawing Rights”—the IMF’s own currency) into the National Bank of Ukraine— the country’s central bank. Much of this money was urgently needed to prop up the local commercial banks. In theory, the IMF appeared to require direct supervision of how the Ukrainian banks used the aid. In fact, it appears the banks got to select their own auditors.” [source]

The Biden (and now Kerry) scandal in the Ukraine is much more than about the money paid to Hunter Biden for being a Board member at the largest gas producer in the Ukraine, Burisma Holdings. The real scandal involves billions in funds from the IMF and US in aid that has gone missing.

Burisma (Ukraine’s largest oil and gas provider) has been the subject of many recent news articles because of its scandalous close-knit ties with President Obama’s Vice President Biden and Secretary of State Kerry. (Yes, Kerry is involved here too)

Before the Orange Revolution, Privat Group had been widely regarded as relatively uninvolved in politics, but loyal to the Leonid Kuchma regime. After the government change, the group’s owners, according to media, became close allies of Yulia Tymoshenko (although she publicly denies this). Analysts agree that some of Tymoshenko’s decisions as the Prime Minister of Ukraine supported Privat side in conflicts. Some sources state that Privat Group provided significant financial support for Viktor Yuschenko during his presidential campaign and subsequent Orange Revolution.” [source]

As noted in prior posts, Kolomoisky purchased a private military consisting of mainly military and police forces who were also employed by the Ukrainian Government. Kolomoisky is credited with stopping the forward progression of Russian separatists via the use of his private military.

The international financial agency had rushed the money to Ukraine in April, in response to what IMF managing director Christine Lagarde called a “major crisis.” She went on to hail the government’s “unprecedented resolve” in developing a “bold economic program to secure macroeconomic and financial stability.” Over the next five months the international agency poured the equivalent of $4.51 billion ($2.97 billion in “Special Drawing Rights”—the IMF’s own currency) into the National Bank of Ukraine— the country’s central bank.

In fact, it appears the banks got to select their own auditors.” [source]

Kolomoisky’s bank, PrivatBank, is later revealed to be a recipient of billions of dollars of IMF funds. Kolomoisky is believed to have looted those funds.

At one point in time, Kolomoisky had been placed on a US Government Visa ban list due to his questionable business practices; however, shortly after Archer Devon and Hunter Biden joined the board of Burisma, that ban was mysteriously lifted, and there has been no investigation into these missing funds.

RNC Launches ‘Victims of Socialism’ Campaign

The Republican National Committee (RNC) announced on Oct. 22 a new campaign with a mission to present the outcome of socialist policies carried out in Venezuela and Cuba through experience and accounts of people who were able to escape Venezuela.

“When you hear firsthand from people from Venezuela or Cuba who have dealt with socialism, who’ve been driven from their countries, who’ve dealt with the poverty and the instability it brings to their government, I think it really resonates,” said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel on “Fox & Friends.”

To facilitate this, the RNC launched a website VictimsOfSocialism.org where the stories of people who fled socialist countries like Venezuela or Cuba are published. She added that these stories may have a very powerful effect.

London Court presses Kolomoisky case!

In a case closely watched by the IMF and Western investors, a London appeals court gave the green light Tuesday to Ukraine’s government to sue Igor Kolomoisky and his main business partner for $3 billion. Kolomoisky is appealing the decision of the Court of Appeal in London and Wales. But, lawyers say the U.K. Supreme Court rarely overturns decisions of the Appeals court. Without setting a trial date, the Appeals court told Kolomoisky and his business partner, Gennadiy Boholyubov, to prepare their defense by the end of next month.

Joe Biden accused of received $900k from Ukrainian Energy company

Tim Pool Video: https://www.minds.com/media/1029120024257380352

As Tim Pool points out, it’s hard to know who to trust in this story.

MORE Documents Implicate Joe Biden in Ukraine Scandal, Politician Says Joe Was Paid $900K By Burisma.

A Ukrainian MP has issued a statement and released documents alleging that Joe Biden himself was paid $900,000 in exchange for consulting services by Burisma. The story, reported by Interfax, directly implicates Joe Biden and if true would present a scenario in which Joe Biden got a prosecutor fired to protect himself from investigation.

The issue in the end for all of us is who to trust. Do we trust this Ukrainian politician? Well the media reported that Hunter Biden and Joe did nothing wrong, but their source? A Ukrainian political figure.

In the end it seems like we have no way to know who is telling the truth unless the US launches an investigation into Joe Biden. At the very least, even if the latest allegations are true Joe has been accused for a while of enriching himself and his family with the office.

It is common “soft corruption” and we all know it happens.

Regardless of the latest claims against Trump, Democrats, Or Biden we need to stop pretending the nepotism and corruption doesn’t exist.

Even many leftists have come out slamming the Bidens for their misuse of public office and at the very least we can all agree on that.

If these new allegations are true then Trump would be right to want it investigated and it makes an absurd reason for impeachment. Regardless though, the call with Ukraine by Trump pushed it regardless if it warrants the calls to impeach.

In the end the best we can hope for is that this matter is investigated properly and fairly.

NY Times Praises Mass Murdering Mao as “One of History’s Great Revolutionary Figures”

The New York Times was forced to delete a tweet that praised Communist dictator Mao Zedong – who was responsible for the deaths of around 45 million people – as a “great revolutionary leader.”

Under Mao’s Great Leap Forward policy, over the course of just 4 years between 1958-1962 some 45 million people starved to death, making it the biggest episode of mass murder ever recorded.

Countless other victims also lost their lives as a result of Mao’s ruthless oppression, incarceration and execution of political adversaries who stood in his way.

That historical context was noticeably absent when the NY Times effusively tweeted about how Mao, “died one of history’s great revolutionary figures.”

The newspaper was forced to walk it back after a huge online backlash.

My Alma Mater is in trouble for discriminating against Christians

On Friday, a federal court ruled that officials at the University of Iowa must pay out of their own pockets for discriminating against InterVarsity Christian Fellowship by kicking them off campus, along with other religious student groups. The university deregistered the religious groups after an openly gay man claimed he was unjustly denied a leadership position in another Christian organization that required leaders to follow traditional Christian sexual morality. This morality may be unpopular, but organizations should have the freedom of association to limit their leadership to those who follow their precepts.

Reformer Oleksandr Danyliuk is out after clashing with Kolomoisky’s lawyer-now-chief-of-staff

This is bad.

President Zelenskiy accepted the resignation Monday of national security council secretary Oleksandr Danyliuk, a reformer with a strong following in Western business circles. As Finance Minister in 2016, Danyliuk pushed for nationalizing PrivatBank, the bankrupt bank partly owned by Ihor Kolomoisky. In the Zelenskiy government, Danyliuk clashed with Andriy Bogdan, the former Kolomoisky lawyer who is now presidential chief of staff.

Ukraїner

This new Youtube Channel does extremely high quality videos of the rebirth of some Ukrainian villages and “Xutros” (clusters of homes too few to be considered a village).

It seems to be a significant marketing push. I’ve seen “Ukraїner” advertised on a billboard, and a “Ukraїner” photo book for sale in a gas station.

“Смерть Нації” ???

I just discovered this right-wing Ukrainian vlogger. In this video, he criticized Ukraine’s LGBT movement which he claims is getting enormous international support. Apparently, in some of their demonstrations, activists carried signs saying “Смерть Нації”.

He compares today’s movements to old economic Marxism, and says that homosexuals on the place of the old Proletariat in a similar destructive communist movement.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=io_z9uVoN9E

A friend of mine insists that he’s a provocateur paid by Russia. He may be genuine and paid by Russia too – Russia’s doctrine seems to involve having influence in ALL dissident movements.

What do you think? Is it possible the “Смерть Нації” signs were made by plants?

“Last Century Socialism and Communism Killed 100 Million People” – President Trump Stomps on the Democrat-Socialists in UN Speech

During his speech he took time to lash out at the growing socialist evil that threatens Western culture.

President Trump: “Socialism and communism are about one thing only. Power for the ruling class. Today I repeat a message for the world that I have delivered at home. America will never be a socialist country. Last century socialism and communism killed 100 million people.“

Pres. Trump: “Socialism and communism are about one thing only. Power for the ruling class. Today I repeal a message for the world that I have delivered at home. America will never be a socialist country.” https://t.co/UbNFKS1F56
