Putin says he might have made a tiny error

He claimed that Clinton campaign received 400 MILLION DOLLARS in contributions from people accused of tax evasion in Russia.

Turns out he meant to say 400 THOUSAND DOLLARS, per Russian state media.

Even that is wildly exaggerated. The actual amount is closer to 400 DOLLARS!

So Putin was close.

The Ziff brothers, the Bill Browder associates referenced by Putin, donated $1.7 million to various political groups and individuals in 2016, spread around to both parties. Of that, $1.1 million went to Democrats and $0.6 million to Republicans. Hillary actually received $17,700.

By the way,  Bill Browder is Putin’s sworn enemy, and the man almost single-handedly responsible for the Magnitsky Act, versions of which are slowly freezing the global assets of Putin and his cronies. In the hopes of discrediting Browder and countering the Magnitsky Act, Putin and his lackeys have accused Browder of just about everything they can think of.  “They accused me of being a serial killer; they accused me of being a CIA/MI6 agent determined to destroy the Russian government; and they accused me of somehow stealing $4.8 billion of IMF money back in the 1990s that was destined for the Russian Treasury.”

Magnitsky, by the way, was Browder’s lawyer.

And Browder himself, although born in Chi-town, is a British citizen, so Putin is barking up the wrong tree. Of course Putin knows he would go nowhere with the leaders of the UK, who are on to his baloney, so he is looking to work on a world leader who is a bit soft in the head and weak on the facts.

Gee, I wonder who he might have in mind.

Ya gotta give props to Putin. At least he doesn’t nickel-and-dime his lying. You think Trump told a whopper about his inaugural crowd size? Hah! Child’s play. Putin’s claim is roughly equivalent to Trump having claimed that the entire population of the universe was in Washington for his inauguration.

Marisa Papen all kinds of naked

She is the woman who always seems to be in trouble for stripping in some sacred or otherwise forbidden place, like the wailing wall, the pyramids, downtown Manhattan, or Dick Cheney’s undisclosed location. Here is her home page, which tells the whole story in a manner we all approve – with nekkid pictures.

Suggestions for future naked poses: the Vatican, the Lincoln Memorial, my house.

Rick Wiles: We’re 72 Hours Away From A Coup During Which Trump Will Be Decapitated On The White House Lawn

Do the plotters have a GoFundMe account?

I don’t really know who Mr. Miles is, but he certainly sounds like a measured and sensible man, so he must have really thought this through.

“End Times broadcaster and radical conspiracy theorist Rick Wiles used his TruNews television program last night to warn that MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow had signaled that a violent coup will take place within the next 72 hours during which President Trump and his family will be dragged out of the White House and beheaded.”

It seems to me there is a big flaw in Rick’s reasoning. Where is there a liberal strong enough to wield an axe?

Maybe they will go full France and use a guillotine.

But what a TV event it would be! The President is always obsessed with his TV ratings, and there is absolutely no question that this would be the most-watched TV event in history. Imagine the product placement opportunities. E.g.: Trump asks for a final Diet Coke before his beheading.

 

Mystery of a 2,000-year-old papyrus has finally been decoded – and it’s all about women having sex

“Specifically, it relates to a proposed medical condition called ‘hysterical apnea.’ The now-debunked idea proclaimed that women who were starved of sexual intercourse became hysterical and crazy.”

Our ever-clueless president said on Wednesday he does not believe Russia is still targeting the United States.

Needless to say, he has no reason to hold this position, nor any logic behind it.

Last week Dan Coats (a Trump appointee as Director of National Intelligence) said that “the digital infrastructure that serves this country is literally under attack.” And, in particular, Russia is the “most aggressive foreign actor, no question. And they continue their efforts to undermine our democracy.”

Dan Coats also told a congressional committee in February that he already had seen evidence Russia was targeting U.S. elections in November, when Republican control of the House of Representatives and Senate are at stake, plus a host of positions in state governments.

AFTER Trump’s comments, Coats repeated, “We have been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy.”

It looks like the Dodgers have a new shortstop

The deal is not formalized yet, but sources say it is happening.

Manny Machado is a star. He is among the AL leaders in most important offensive categories. Before this year, he has had three consecutive 30-homer seasons.

As for the Orioles – they are already heading for one of the worst seasons in modern MLB history, and Machado is their only bright light, so things can only get worse.
