    There are a lot of bad people. Some of them have a lot of big power. Bad + Power = Bad squared. At least.

    But Trump said that he was our friend, and all of those republicans agreed with him.

    Republicans practice voter repression.

    Is it possible that the “Republicans” now believe that repression is a good thing?

    Republicans have extensive training in following the “leader” and in recent decades, have lost all ability to think for themselves.

    It has recently been exposed that both Rudy Giuliani and Senator Ron Johnson were both notified by the American intelligence network in 2019 that they were being fed Russian misinformation – neither stopped the spreading of that false information.

    This makes twice that Wisconsin has subjected America with flakes as Senator! the first was “Tail gunner” Joe McCarthy – a drunk who saw Russian Communists under every bed and behind every door, and, now Ron Johnson who actually follows the dictates of the Russian propaganda machine!

    What weird connection does Wisconsin republican politics and the Russian oligarchy have? Because they obviously have some deep-seated bonding going on.

    Of course the American republican party is rife with Russian connections and Senator Johnson is FAR from the only congressional republican with deep and abiding ties to Putin, the Russian leader – he’s just the most blatant example of Russian collusion.

    Ironically, it is those who idolise Putin the most who call themselves the greatest patriots. But then, everything about the GOP has become hypocritical now.

    Putin has a deal with the Russian Orthodox Church. He supports them financially, they support him politically. A lot like the Republicans and the Evangelicals in this country.

    GOP is busily using repression to see that certain people can’t vote. They are all for repression

    Is “Voter Suppression” the same as repression in the Russian sense?

    Poor ol’ Bill. He doesn’t know that sign language doesn’t require auditory action but does require facial expression. But then there are a lot of things that Bill doesn’t know…

    Aleksei Navalny, a Russian opposition leader who’s in dire condition after allegedly being poisoned, is only the latest Kremlin opponent who has fallen victim to what experts say has long been a favorite tool of Russian intelligence agencies.

    Pyotr Verzilov, a Russian opposition activist, said he went through the same symptoms in 2018, including being put on a ventilator and eventually being flown to a German hospital for treatment, according to the New York Times.

    Anna Politkovskaya, an investigative journalist and fierce critic of the Russian government, became seriously ill after a suspected poisoning in 2004 during a domestic Russian flight, and was gunned down two years later.

    The same week Politkovskaya was poisoned, Roman Tsepov, who was a bodyguard for President Vladimir Putin in the 1990s before he came to power, became violently ill and died a few days after having a cup of tea at a local Russian security service office—his autopsy revealed radioactive material in his body.

    Aleksandr V. Litvinenko, a rogue Russian intelligence officer, died after drinking tea laced with a lethal radioactive isotope, polonium 210, just a month after Politkovskaya’s murder—a 2016 British investigation concluded his death could have been approved by Putin himself.

    Opposition leader Vladimir Kara-Murza was poisoned in 2015, one month after calling for the U.S. to impose harsher sanctions on Russia during a series of public meetings on Capitol Hill—Kara-Murza said he was poisoned again in 2017 as he toured Russia showcasing a documentary about murdered Putin critic Boris Nemtsov.

    Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal in 2018 and his daughter were poisoned by two Russian intelligence operatives with a toxic nerve agent applied to their door handle in Salisbury, England—they recovered but the attack led the U.K. and its allies to expel 150 Russian diplomats and impose crushing sanctions on the Kremlin.

    (To be concluded)
