    Nah, Clinton had to shut hers down because when rich people figured out she'd never be President, funding her travel slush fund didn't make as much sense anymore.

      And not a peep from the "support the troops" flag wavers on the right.

        • I just found this remarkably good piece on the FB page of one Thomas Clay Jr.. Kudos T.C.!

          Dear Republicans and NRA members,

          We need to talk.

          Not long ago, you all used to be pro-FBI and Anti-Russian and in just two years, you've become anti-FBI and pro-Russia. What the hell happened to you?

          It was Sun Tzu who said, 'when your enemies are making mistakes, do not interrupt them.' I will be honest, I don't like you, any of you. You're toxic malcontents who relish being cruel to your fellow Americans because you stubbornly refuse to do anything to make this world a better place.

          For example, your idea of 'the best healthcare in the world' is to first cut up the total number of healthcare dollars and give the private insurance companies between 30-35% to administer the health care industry and pay investors who want a profit every quarter all while paying the CEOs tens of millions in salary is at best, stupid. Your idea to give between 30-35% of the available health care dollars from a multi-trillion dollar industry when Medicare and Medicaid can administer those agencies for 4% is flatly, insane.

          We pay as much as $800 for a bag of saline solution with this wonderful 'free market' system were private companies are supposedly more efficient and cost-effective only they're not. 99.9% of you are not even aware that the reason why Medicare is forbidden to negotiate prices for drugs is because Bush had that provision inserted into the Medicare part D provision as a multibillion dollar hand out to the pharmaceutical industry who so generously donated to his campaign. Right now, Americans have to pay $1300 a month for insulin and because many cannot afford it, they are rationing it and dying because of it when it cost merely $230 a month just a couple of years ago.

          In every other civilized nation in the world, their government runs the healthcare system because it is infinitely more efficient and cheaper. So why do you embrace this devastating cognitive dissonance which harms everyone? I know why, because you're scared of 'big government' where you can vote for representatives to not do things you don't want. This is the 21 century and small government principles spoken in the early 19th and 20th century do not work in our global economy.

          That's but one example where your failure to adapt to the modern world does severe damage to us as a nation, there are many others.

          Today, Maria Butina admitted in federal court that she is indeed a Russian agent who was sent here to create 'levers' to manipulate conservatives via the National Rifle Association. Alexandre Torchin laundered $30 million through the NRA to specifically be spent on helping elect Trump. Now I have listened to your disgusting lies of 'Obama is coming for your guns' to the point I want to barf. You have shamelessly lied so often about Hillary taking your guns as if you all are the only ones who have guns. Obama did not confiscate one gun. The NRA itself feels such contempt for you that they believe they can lie to your face and you will believe them. It is that belief exactly which infers you're too stupid to know they are lying to you and with this treasonous association with Russia, you have verified that they are right.

          For the past two years we have had to listen to Trump spew his lies about 'no collusion!' So here's a question for you, which member of the Trump campaign DID NOT have contact with Russians during the campaign? You are welcome to google that if you like but I will answer it, 3 of them. Sixteen met with Russians, accepted help from them and not one of them called the FBI to let them know that Russians were trying to infiltrate that campaign.

          How many times did we hear, 'I have nothing to do with Russia! I have no deals in Russia. Nobody I know had anything to do with Russia?' Trump lied about it for 3 solid years. He said he had nothing to do with the payments to Stormy Daniels or Karen Mcdougal and now we know for absolute certainty that he did and not only did he coverup their stories to effect the election unlike John Edwards, he had his chum at the National Inquirer pay off Karen Mcdougal specifically to effect the election and Mr. Pecker admitted this in federal court today which is a serious felony.

          So what would you have said if Barack Obama had committed multiple felonies? Hell, you wanted Hillary locked up without her having anything resembling an indictment. How can you stand to be such hypocrites? Is there no basic human decency among any of you? Not only did you all say, 'no presidential candidate should be able to run if they are under FBI criminal investigation' but you said it with the same idiotic fervor you said, 'Radical Islamic terrorists' as if those were the magic words that would make them melt into gelatinous pools.

          A federal judge today said as a matter of *fact* that the president of the United States committed felonies against the American people. He said he knew nothing about these payments and now we know he knew everything about them a full year before he was denying them. The Trumps have done nothing but lie for the entirety of their campaign and administration.

          So my question is, do you have no decency at long last? Has your loyalty to country been supplanted by your vile tribalism? This administration has already produced three times as many convicted felons than ALL Democrat administrations combined. What felony does Trump have to commit that would awaken your conscience to the point where even you admit it is too much for you? Give us a number so we won't annoy you with the easily provable fact that you voted for a crook even though we told you this before you threw that Molotov cocktail back in 2016?

          Our grandchildren are going to suffer the consequences of this criminal administration while you all sober up to the fact that YOU are the brainwashed lemmings that you constantly accuse us of being! Hatred is a vile drug and Fox News delivers you your dose every single day and you are now so sick with it that you will slander and defame a war hero like Robert Mueller who served his country his entire adult life and spilled his blood on the battlefield and won the bronze star for his heroism while the five-deferment draft-dodging coward President calls him a 'disgrace.'

          Well let me tell you quislings something, your complicity is a disgrace and when this country evacuates that rat****ing traitor from our house then we are going to drown you in your own hypocrisy!

              After push from Perry, backers got huge gas deal in Ukraine

              KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Two political supporters of U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry secured a potentially lucrative oil and gas exploration deal from the Ukrainian government soon after Perry proposed one of the men as an adviser to the country’s new president.

              Perry’s efforts to influence Ukraine’s energy policy came earlier this year, just as President Volodymyr Zelenskiy’s new government was seeking military aid from the United States to defend against Russian aggression, and allies of President Donald Trump were ramping up efforts to get the Ukrainians to investigate his Democratic rival Joe Biden.

              Ukraine awarded the contract to Perry’s supporters little more than a month after the U.S. energy secretary attended Zelenskiy’s May inauguration. During that trip, Perry handed the new president a list of people he recommended as energy advisers, including his longtime political backer Michael Bleyzer.

              A week later, Bleyzer and his partner Alex Cranberg submitted a bid to drill for oil and gas at a sprawling government-controlled site called Varvynska. Their proposal was millions of dollars lower than their only competitor, according to internal Ukrainian government documents obtained by The Associated Press.

              But their newly created joint venture, Ukrainian Energy, was awarded the 50-year agreement because a government-appointed commission determined they had greater technical expertise and stronger financial backing, the documents show.

              Testimony in the impeachment inquiry into Trump shows the energy secretary was one of three key U.S. officials who were negotiating a meeting between Trump and the Ukrainian leader.

              The sequence of events suggests that the Trump administration’s political maneuvering in Ukraine was entwined with the big business of the energy trade.

              Perry made clear during trips to Kyiv that he was close to Bleyzer, a Ukrainian-American investor and longtime Perry supporter who lives in Houston, and Cranberg, a Republican mega-donor who provided Perry the use of a luxury corporate jet during the energy secretary’s failed 2012 presidential bid.

              Perry spokeswoman Shaylyn Hynes said Wednesday that the energy secretary has championed the American energy industry all over the world, including Ukraine. But Hynes denied Perry had advocated for the business interests of any one individual or company.

              Zelenskiy’s office did not respond to requests for comment.

              In a statement to AP, Bleyzer denied that Perry helped his firm get the gas deal.

              “I believe that Secretary Perry’s conversations with Ukrainian government officials, if they in fact took place, did not play any role in Ukrainian Energy winning its bid,” Bleyzer said Tuesday.

              Amy Flakne, a lawyer for Cranberg’s company Aspect Holdings, said the company “neither sought, nor to our knowledge received, special intervention on its behalf.”

              As Trump’s energy secretary, Perry has flown around the globe to evangelize for U.S. exports of liquefied natural gas, which he calls “Freedom Gas.” He’s made multiple trips to Ukraine and other former Soviet-bloc nations, where shipments of American gas and drilling technology take on strategic importance as a potential alternative to continued dependence on imports from Russia.

              Of the nine gas blocks awarded on July 1, Bleyzer and Cranberg’s bid was the only one of the winners that didn’t include the participation of a Ukrainian company.

              Perry, who served 14 years as the governor of Texas, has publicly championed the potential of U.S. hydraulic fracturing technology to boost oil and gas production in Ukraine and pressed for the bidding process to be opened up to U.S. companies.

              Visitor logs released by the Energy Department through a public records request show Bleyzer entering through the VIP check-in desk at the building where Perry’s office is at least three times, most recently on May 8.

              Less than two weeks later, Perry was on a plane to Kyiv to attend the inauguration ceremony for Zelenskiy. It was during that trip that Perry presented his list of recommended advisers that included Bleyzer and remarked on their long friendship, according to a person in the room who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation.

              Perry’s work in Ukraine places him at the center of the House impeachment inquiry into efforts by Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to press Zelenskiy to open an investigation into Biden and his son Hunter’s business dealings with Burisma, another Ukrainian gas company.

              Perry, who announced last month he is resigning by the end of the year, has refused to cooperate with the congressional probe.

              Bleyzer and Perry’s ties go back at least a decade. As governor, Perry appointed Bleyzer in 2009 to serve as a member of a Texas state advisory board overseeing state funding to emerging technology ventures. The following year, Bleyzer contributed $30,000 to Perry’s 2010 campaign for Texas governor.

              A former engineer at Exxon, Bleyzer was born in Ukraine’s Kharkiv region and trained in digital electronics and quantum physics. In 1994, he founded SigmaBleyzer Investment group, a private equity firm that manages about $1 billion in assets.

              A graduate of the University of Texas in Austin, Cranberg was appointed by Perry in 2011 to serve a six-year term on the state university system’s board of regents. He is a generous political donor, giving more than $3 million since the mid-1980s primarily to Republican candidates.

              When Perry campaigned for president in 2011, federal disclosures show his campaign paid more than $16,000 to a holding company for a private jet used by Cranberg.

                              A CBS News investigation has uncovered a possible pay-for-play scheme involving the Republican National Committee and President Donald Trump's nominee for ambassador to the Bahamas. Emails obtained by CBS News show the nominee, San Diego billionaire Doug Manchester, was asked by the RNC to donate half a million dollars as his confirmation in the Senate hung in the balance, chief investigative correspondent Jim Axelrod reports.
