Is this something a #BananaRepublic strong man or a #Stalinist East European dictator would have done? Sadly, #GOP is now an empty box, filled with wishes & nostrums of #SupremeLeader. No citizen input required unless you have his ear & money. #KAG2020 msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-…
2) #Iowa now crushed by many farm disasters, some #Trump inflicted: #China grain embargo, #CornEthanol market cut by #Trump's #EPA, #Covid's hit on meat market, extreme drought & now #Derecho, which destroyed 40% of the crop. Where's the ag plank? NADA! #IaPolitics #IaSen #IaGov
3) Is this a job for @SenJoniErnst & @KimReynolds, both of whom will speak at @GOPconvention? Will they say the #Emperor has no clothes & NO commitment to #Iowa farmers after Inauguration? Or will they continue to sing his praises as #Trump walks over #Iowa? #IaPolitics #IaSen

Big #Covid19 outbreak at #MtPleasant #stateprison. 170+ inmates tested positive in sweep. Bumped #HenryCounty #Covid rate form 5% to 16.4%. But no impact on in-school learning at local schools thanks to #CovidKim's ruling that prison staff& families don't get covid. #iapolitics
What's #CovidKim's rationale for not including #prison & #packingplant #Covid19 cases in school opening calcs? Cuz active tracking would quickly identify cases & quarantine cases from the sites. So why didn't #IaGov establish the program? Needed 5K trackers. Now? 300. #IaPolitics
So what's in store for poor citizens of #HenryCounty (pop 20K)? Prison is 7% of population. 340 staff + 1000+ total prisoners. Assuming that half the staff are or 2B infected it's really big & no viable tracker system. Sorry. #SOL! #IaPolitics #CovidKim

1)12 days B4 @NYT reported #Russia paid #Taliban a bounty to kill US troops, the nation's top military intelligence analyst, #AnthonySchilella, put a bullet in his head. Did he leak to NYT on #Trump's refusal to act? It would have gone thru him. @JoeBiden interc.pt/3job9Id
2) So now we have a bizarre #Putin-Like mystery on our hands. What reverberation or fear of retaliation would have set off #Schinella's suicide? Weeks from retirement . . . Was he placed in the impossible position of sticking with the truths he knew to be or lying?
3) The one fact that stands out. #Schinella knew. He was in the pipeline. He got it into #Intelligencebriefing for #POTUS in March, when it was first ignored. He knew the impact of the bounty on US lives and US morale. And he was stymied.

1) #Trump's deals are like cockroaches. If you see one irregularity, there are bound to be at least a hundred more. Take for example, #Deutschebank. Invested $600M in #TrumpTowerChicago (and is documented as a #HotMoney conduit for #Putin's mob). chicagotribune.com/news/ctct-trum…
2) #DeutscheBank loaned $600M for #ChicagoTrumpTower when no domestic banks would lend to the bankrupt casino operator. There would have had to be some concurrences by DeutscheBank for #Trump to get #Mezzanine financing from #FortressCreditCorp to finish the project. #Resist
3) so why did #FortressCreditCorporation opt to take a $104M bath on a $150M note rather than snarl #Trump in court? #DeutscheBank maybe? Perhaps a secret backfill agreement to make #Fortress whole? And where is only logical source of funds for such an agreement? #Putin.

Protest for #Navalny in #Siberia. Attempted poisoning of #Navalny augments anger over the jailing of a popular local governor on trumped up charges. Will the Siberia Navalny protests spread to #Moscow, or is fear of death already the object lesson? #KGB #Putin #NATO #Belarus
1) Coverage of the protests by #Belarus's largest TV station. As U can see, #Lukashenko has lost control of at least part of the media & no one seems to be stopping them. Earlier in the week it was reported that some #Belarus military units were also in the protest. #Putin #NATO
2) Meanwhile, #Lukashenko announced that #NATO is marshalling forces for an attack & has ordered most of his forces to his western border. This conveniently gets his troops out of harm's way if #Putin invades from east to stop #Lukashenko's collapse. NATO denies intent to invade.

As I predicted. #Putin is waiting in the wings. If #Lushenko falls is #Belarus, #Russia will invade under a mutual defense pact. This puts the #RussianArmy head-to-head against #NATO countries in the #Baltics as #Trump scrambles NATO formations. #BigMess

theguardian.com/world/2020/aug…
@thewademethod If #Russia invades #Belarus to save #Lushenko & binds now independent nation into Russia a 'la #Crimea, what will #China do? #Belarus invasion puts #NATO on alert & draws resources. Great time for big event in #SouthChinaSea. They are allies & we are pinned down. #TrumpPutin
It's getting ready to happen. #Russia state TV just does not call for invasions for the hell of it. The invasion of #Belarus by #Putin, almost immediately after #Trump tears up the #NATO war plan by scrambling the forces. Was this planned with sweet nothings in #Trump's ear?

1) Disturbing to me in #Mueller indictments was allegation of #Russia plant of #IaCaucus #Fraud stories. That broke the back of the party in #Iowa 4 2016 cycle. Caused mass party switches to independent in some parts of #IA. Remember #DemExit? #TrumpRussia #IaPolitics #IaDem
When #DemExit on #twitter & #FB was ongoing, I had a face2face discussion in #Fairfield of voter registration changes at the #JeffersonCounty court house. There were quite a few -- a direct consequence of #Bernie people being angry cuz they had seen SM fraud stories. #IaPolitics
3) I really saw damage from #TrumpRussia #IaCaucusFraud allegations in Oct 2016 going door-to-door in #Fairfield. The #DemVoter lists were "squishy." Lots of changed parties, lots of discussion of the #IaCaucus allegations of fraud and not voting #IaDem. #Mueller #iapolitics
