Jan 2018: "The US ambassador to Russia, Jon Huntsman, will take part in an Epiphany ceremony over the weekend near Moscow, embassy spokeswoman Maria Olson said."

Is this part of the job description of a US ambassador to Russia?


"I want to feel close to Russians" is an odd way to phrase things - especially when you are a devout Mormon who takes baptism pretty darn seriously.
Unrelated Question: Why is our current US Ambassador to Russia in Epstein's little black address book?

Related Question: Why is no one reporting this?

So the AG makes an unannounced speech unrelated to anything legal or AG-specific and vague enough to allow for white supremacists to interpret it as supporting their ideology while arguably avoiding the perception that he’s racist from civil society. Is that accurate?
I just saw a brief clip.

Feierabend de luxe: Mitten im Gewitter zwischen zwei Bahnhöfen in der #S3 feststecken, weil der Zug über einen Stromabnehmer gefahren ist — wir warten jetzt auf Feuerwehr und „Notfallmanager“.

Melde mich wieder, wenn erste Fälle von Kannibalismus auftreten.

(2) Eine S-Bahn ist doch ein Faradayscher Käfig, oder?

(3) Wenn es weiter so regnet, koennen wir aus unserer festsitzenden S-Bahn Flaschenpost werfen.

@TheRickWilson @Mandahl @BulwarkOnline Bulwark has really been giving Donald the benefit of the doubt. His level of concern for “his people” hinges on his dependency on them for getting what he wants. I find this more likely than a good faith yet simplistic “my team good. Other team bad” explanation.
@TheRickWilson @Mandahl @BulwarkOnline I really appreciate the author pointing out exactly what went down linguistically w the “deplorable” comment though. However, there is no innocent explanation here. It was racist.Could have been for votes cynically or a genuine belief system. Fred was arrested for marching w KKK.
@TheRickWilson @Mandahl @BulwarkOnline IMHO, I think Trump is probably substantially prejudiced, displaying more racism than his same aged peers in the gen pop. However, he is not a raging klan member or committed WS. But his moral depravity enables him psychologically to amplify those voices for votes(reprehensible)

One of the many "dirty tricks" Nixon tried to do in his early years at the White House was undermine the job & unemployment numbers coming out of the Bureau of Labor Statistics office. Wonder how things are going today...…
Blast from the Past: There was one president who tried to manipulate BLS.
Just think of ALL the industries that are affected by ADVANTAGEOUS unemployment & job numbers:

✔ Banking
✔ Stock Market
✔ Interest Rates
✔ Political corporate donors
✔ Elections

Dear Attorney General Barr,

Please meet Ethics Rule 3.3 - Candor to Tribunal:
A lawyer shall not knowingly: Make a false statement of fact or law to a tribunal or fail to correct a false statement of material fact or law previously made to the tribunal by the lawyer, unless correction would require disclosure of information that is prohibited by Rule 1.6;
Can a sitting Attorney General be disbarred but still remain over the U.S. Justice Department?

Remember, disbarment is handled via the courts at the STATE level, not the federal.

In lieu of creating a whole new account/blog documenting the anti-Micronesian hate I see online, I’ve decided to just make a thread of it. I encourage everyone to read through it, share their own, contribute, and RT. Will be using the hashtag #BeingMicronesian with this thread.
Here’s my previous pinned thread about some of the anti-Micronesian hate I’d recently seen in a #StolenStuffHawaii post. #BeingMicronesian
Here are the screenshots from the same #StolenStuffHawaii post, unedited... (Part 01)

Do @AdamSchiffCA and @SenWarren care to comment about their buddy #SamanthaBee calling a woman, mother and public servant a “feckless c**t” and telling her to dress like a hooker? The same woman who’s currently working on #PrisonReform cc: @TBSNetwork @TheDemocrats
Is that your office #AdamSchiff as your constituent please answer why this is okay? Though it’s something you probably wish you could say yourself that’s why I’m voting for @Johnny_Congress #FullOfSchiff #TakeBackCalifornia
Dear @BarackObama and @madeleine do you condone calling women “feckless c**ts” and telling them to dress like hookers? #AskingForAFriend

Irene is CEO of Chanel and Seulgi is the CEO of Gucci, both hot topics in the fashion industry.

They constantly beef online but nobody truly knows about the past relationship between the CEOs. Both use the media to communicate their feelings.

~ disclaimer, i don’t own any company names etc.
~ all of this is fake for an AU, none of this is in any way real
~ quote don’t reply ♡
Their profiles: Kang Seulgi CEO of Gucci, Bae Irene CEO of Chanel

Sorry for the rant but #MichaelHastings deserves justice he was being investigated by the FBI at the time of his death, all things old deserve new light. #WeRemember
Obama appointee at DHS suggests to the "team" that maybe they should just call #MichaelHastings to help him understand the mission. One year later he was dead.
Attn: @MercedesBenz do your vehicles normally become engulfed in flames with minimal front end damage? Also do your engines fly through the air? #Askingforafriend #MichaelHastings
