FBI Escalates Investigation Into Ukrainian Oligarch Tied to Florida Democrat
[Free Beacon] The FBI on Tuesday raided two business entities owned by a Ukrainian oligarch who is closely tied to the husband of freshman Democratic congresswoman Debbie Mucarsel-Powell.

The federal investigation into financial crimes by Ukrainian billionaire Igor Kolomoisky, whose businesses have paid Mucarsel-Powell's husband hundreds of thousands of dollars for legal work in recent years, has been ongoing for at least a year. Kolomoisky in recent years has faced multiple criminal allegations, including embezzlement, bribery, and murder.

Mucarsel-Powell has faced questions on the income earned from her husband's work for Kolomoisky since her first run for Congress in 2018, when she defeated longtime Republican congressman Carlos Curbelo. Mucarsel-Powell has managed to sidestep the issue, but the ramped up probe into Kolomoisky's U.S. businesses could spell trouble as she fights to hold on to the hotly contested south Florida seat in November.

Though her campaign denied that her husband, Robert Powell, ever directly worked for or received payment from Kolomoisky, an investigation by the Miami Herald found that he worked for companies bankrolled by the Ukrainian businessman until a year before his wife decided to run for office. Powell said his decision to end his relationship with the companies had nothing to do with his wife's election.

Financial disclosures filed by Mucarsel-Powell show the work was lucrative—in Powell's final two years of work for Felman Trading Inc., a mining company owned by Kolomoisky, for example, he earned $695,000.

Michelle Obama: Former US first lady says she has 'low-grade depression'
[BBC] Former US First Lady Michelle Obama has said she is suffering from "low-grade depression" because of the pandemic, racial injustice and the "hypocrisy" of the Trump administration.

She said managing "emotional highs and lows" required "knowing yourself" and "the things that do bring you joy".

Mrs Obama said she has had difficulties with her exercise routine and sleep.

"I'm waking up in the middle of the night because I'm worrying about something or there's a heaviness."
"Even scratching my balls has lost all pleasure"
She made the comments during the second episode of her eponymous podcast, for which she was interviewing US journalist Michele Norris.

"These are not, they are not fulfilling times, spiritually," Mrs Obama said. "I know that I am dealing with some form of low-grade depression.

"Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting."

Democrats Gutted Anti-Hezbollah Legislation Days Before Attack on Israel
[Free Beacon] Just days before the Iranian-funded terror group Hezbollah waged a terrorist attack on Israel’s northern border, congressional Democrats gutted legislation that would have halted U.S. funding to the Lebanese military, which is almost entirely controlled by the terror group.

Congress has been working on legislation that would slash millions in American taxpayer funding to the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF), which has long been under Hezbollah’s thumb. Republican lawmakers in both the House and Senate have been pushing to cut this funding for some time, arguing that U.S. aid should not be sent to an institution known to conduct attacks against Israel on Iran’s behalf.

While the original bill had bipartisan support in both chambers, House Democrats recently attached an amendment to their version of the legislation that nixed the funding cut. Other GOP amendments that would have strengthened the legislation and pushed the LAF to isolate Hezbollah from its forces were also struck down by the Democrat-led House.

The House last week passed a watered-down version of the bill that leaves the LAF funding fully intact. The wrangling over the legislation came just days before Hezbollah launched a foiled attack on Israel from southern Lebanon, where the LAF and international forces have been tasked with stopping such terror strikes. Republican congressional sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon accused House Democrats of standing in the way of a major reform effort that could have forced the LAF to eradicate Hezbollah from its ranks or face a cutoff in U.S. aid dollars.

U.S. funding to the LAF has been a flashpoint for some time. As Hezbollah increases its force presence on Israel’s northern border and stockpiles sophisticated Iranian-made arms, GOP leaders in Congress have pressured the Trump administration to take action. The State Department, like congressional Democrats, has championed the aid, with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo telling the Free Beacon earlier this year that funding to the LAF remains a priority. Republicans, however, view the aid as a tool to force Lebanon into ridding itself of Hezbollah’s influence.

Soros Boosts St. Louis Prosecutor After Indictment of Gun-Toting Couple
[FREEBEACON] Liberal billionaire George Soros
...either Ernst Stavro Blofeld or Auric Goldfinger come true...
is redoubling his efforts to reelect the St. Louis prosecutor who brought felony charges against a couple for pointing guns at Black Lives Matter protesters after they broke through the couple’s front gates.Soros poured $116,000 into the Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC, which is working to reelect St. Louis circuit attorney Kim Gardner. Gardner is facing former homicide prosecutor Mary Pat Carl in Tuesday's Democratic primary.

Gardner has generated controversy during her first four years in office. She hired a private investigator to look into allegations against former Missouri governor Eric Greitens (R.), who was charged with felony invasion of privacy, instead of working with police. Gardner's investigator lied under oath and the prosecutor's conduct set off a separate probe into the handling of the case.

De Blasio: ‘What We’re Seeing Here’ with Isaias ‘Is the Result of Global Warming’
[BREITBART] During a presser on Tuesday, New York City Mayor Comrade Bill de Blasio
...cryptocommie mayor of New York and for some reason a Dem candidate for president in 2020. Corrupt and incompetent, his qualifications for office seem to consist of being married to a black woman, with whom he honeymooned in Cuba. He has a preppy-looking son named Dante, whose Divine Comedy involved getting his back hair up when a police car drove past him slowly. New Yorkers voted for him, so they deserve him...
(D) stated that "What we’re seeing here" with Tropical Storm Isaias "and what we’ve been seeing now for years, is the result of global warming." De Blasio added that global warming is leading to "more and more pressure on coastal areas all around the world" and that "We’re seeing problems in cities all over the world because of global warming."

After urging New Yorkers to take precautions during the storm, de Blasio said, "Now, let’s talk about the bigger reality. What we’re seeing here, and what we’ve been seeing now for years, is the result of global warming. We’ve been seeing more and more pressure on coastal areas all around the world. Some of you may have been following the horrible flooding in Bangladesh right now. We have a big Bangladeshi community here in this city. We’re seeing problems in cities all over the world because of global warming. This is not an abstraction, especially for New Yorkers after Sandy. As I say, after Sandy, there were no more climate change deniers in New York City. We experienced it. We lived it. We’re not going to ignore it."

Joe Biden Snaps at Black Reporter over Cognitive Test Question: ‘Are You a Junkie?’
[BREITBART] Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
...Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids....
bristled at a question about whether or not he has taken a cognitive test, asking an interviewer Tuesday morning whether he would pass a drug test and stumbling over his words several times in the course of one minute.

During an event with the National Association of Black Journalists, CBS News’ Errol Barnett asked if Biden has taken a test that would assess his mental fitness, and Biden snapped, "No, I haven’t taken a test! Why the hell would I take a test? C’mon, man!"

Biden then challenged Barnett, "That’s like saying you, before you got in this program, if you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?"

The presumptive presidential nominee went on to boast of his mental acuity and readiness to debate Trump — but stumbled with word order, word choice, and pronunciation multiple times in the same sentences.

"I’m so forward looking to have an opportunity to sit with the president — or stand with the president — in debates," he insisted (emphasis added).

"I am very willing to let the American people judge my physical, mental fil—my physical as well as my mental fil—fitness," he concluded.

In May, Biden caused controversy when he told Breakfast Club co-host Charlamagne tha God that "you ain’t black" if voters go for Trump.

"If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black," Biden said.

"It don’t have nothing to do with Trump, it has to do with the fact — I want something for my community," the radio host shot back.

Biden claiming he has not taken a cognitive test is a reversal from a statement he made in June.

"I’ve been tested and I’m constantly tested," Biden responded when he was asked by a news hound about a mental assessment.

"All you’ve got to do is watch me, and I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against," he said.

Former White House Physician Dr. Ronny Jackson has said President Trump "aced" a cognitive assessment in 2018.

#10  A secret cabal would run Joe for 2 reasons.

1. He's the most "electable" Dem they've got.
2. He's the perfect fall guy for the replacement they'll put in as VP.

#11  Unless they use a double, he has the same chance of winning as I'm getting a job as a male model.

#12  Funny how you don't hear anything--either from the GOP or AOC (one of the few Dems to say anything)--about Biden's sexual harassment allegations. I guess that died with COVID; or, no need to bring it up since he's so pathetic anyway. Or, it was bovine egesta in the first place.

Aaron Keyak: 'Biden will re-engage with Iran for a diplomatic solution'
[JPOST] If Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden
...Old, boring, a plagiarist, fond of hair sniffing and grabbing the protruding parts of women, and not whatcha call brilliant...
is elected as president, he will work with the US allies to prevent Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
from obtaining nuclear weapons, "which will include re-engaging Iran in a diplomatic solution," said Aaron Keyak, who serves as the Biden campaign's director for Jewish engagement.Speaking at a webinar hosted by the Jewish Democratic Council of America, Keyak said that the diplomatic engagement is meant to ensure that the Islamic Theocratic Republic returns to compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal and to "verifiably prevent a nuclear-armed Iran and find verifiable ways to ensure that it doesn't happen in the long-term."He slammed US President Donald Trump
...Perhaps no man has ever had as much fun being president of the US...
for withdrawing from the agreement, saying that "it is hard to draw up a more disastrous policy than the one president Trump has executed." According to Keyak, "he tore up a deal with Iran that was working to prevent that country from obtaining nuclear weapons. He actually proved that in the short life of JCPOA it achieved its goals. As president, Joe Biden will hold Iran accountable for its destabilizing activities throughout the region," he said.

Home Front: WoT
Sen. Hirono Walks Out of Hearing After Refusing to Denounce or Criticize Antifa
[LI] Democrats have been loudly silent on Antifa and their domestic terrorist-like tactics. During a hearing discussing nationwide protests, Sen. Hirono (D-HI) refused to criticize Antifa.
possibly one of the dimmest bulbs and least self-aware tools in the Senate, and that's a high bar
She mentioned freedom of speech and then suggested any attempt to get a Democrat on record criticizing the group of thugs was little more than political gamesmanship. And in some ways, the latter is true, but this one is easy — Antifa is destroying businesses, property, livelihoods, that’s just a fact. There ought to be unilateral criticism of such behavior, and yet...
Few if any surprises found here.

#1  Now she can empathize with all those old Southern Senators who wouldn't denounce the Klan (another terrorist arm of the Democratic Party).

#2  In 2007, I was recruited by CSP to take part in a Citizen Initiative Group Operations program. I worked directly Kyle Shideler in what was at that time the radical idea of coordinated Counter Jihad efforts. I can attest to both the quality of his character as well as his work. The treatment he received by Dems at the Zenate hearing was appalling. I cannot bring nyself to believe that free Americans will vote in November to empower the grotesquery known as today's Democrat Party
