In Ulan Ude, Siberia, near Lake Baikal, local authorities came together in the early 1970s and did just that, creating the world’s largest Lenin head. Lenin’s massive bronze noggin is still a popular meeting place for locals today, and a big attraction for tourists as well.

We have not even scratched the surface of the damage Trump has done to our and NATO’s national interests.

How many of these countries were also extorted and held hostage by Trump and Barr unless they agreed to participate in a Kremlin charade against our national interests?

Over 1/3 of #Turkey’s population lives in #Istanbul. A good chunk of national GDP & many many billion dollars District budget for the elected #Mayor. #AKP lost in mayoral elections of biggest cities: #Ankara, #Izmir & #Antalya, with #Istanbul as the “hottest tamale” TBD today.

In case anyone is wondering what to get @RosianneCutajar for Christmas, I’d recommend (a) a couple of solid dictionaries, (b) a treatise (preferably in very simple & plain language) on the role of dictionaries & (c) a reality check as a stocking filler. 1/
Here’s @RosianneCutajar. Rosianne is a tool (not a particularly sharp one) in Muscat’s toolkit that he whips out for comic relief / sympathy / distraction.

An insidious circus sideshow. This is her latest advertorial “opinion piece” in the ever obliging MaltaToday 2/
Rosianne has a past which she is somewhat ashamed of. Which is fine, we all did stupid stuff 3/

👉 His 2013 visit paved the way for a scandal that shook the world.
motherjones.com/politics/2018/…
9Nov2013 Miss Universe staffers considered it an Open Secret that Trump’s true agenda in Moscow was not the show but his desire to do business there.
Yet to those around him that afternoon, Trump seemed gripped by one question: Where was Vladimir Putin?
motherjones.com/politics/2018/…
Once in Moscow, Trump received a private message from the Kremlin, delivered by Aras Agalarov, an Oligarch close to Putin & Trump’s partner in hosting the Miss Universe event there: “Mr. Putin would like to meet Mr. Trump.” That excited Trump.
