Facebook has banned telesur english. So much for freedom of the press in the West.

Telesur - to those who don't know - is a joint effort by the evil axis of Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua and a couple of other Latin American baddies. And it's not bad.

This is the most overtly communist thing you have ever done in my presence.

And I'm gonna bring you down once and for all.

Is Pennsylvania too cheap to give its students flashbangs and smoke grenades?

Vice with a fairly shitty piece about the Vory but surprised Chelsea Soros let this be published since it's going against the narrative:

What do you think the Mueller investigations into President Trump's alleged ties to Russia will uncover in regards to the Vory, if anything? Trump has a history of Italian mob ties in the US and some of his lackeys like consigliere Michael Cohen have even claimed to be tight with Russian mobsters.

From Donald Trump down, through Michael Cohen, for me what I see unfolding in the States is not so much a story about everyday Russian organized crime so much as a story of unusual American greed, of a lack of morals and a depressing belief that any business is good business, regardless with whom it is conducted. I have seen no serious evidence of any explicit link between Trump and Russian mobsters. Rather, what I have seen is evidence of the extent to which the Trump Organization seems to have been willing to engage with dubious investors and buyers—some Russian, many not—whom more reputable corporations would not have touched. In the process, it is likely it laundered money from all kinds of questionable sources, but that is not the same as a direct link to gangsters. Above all, this is a story about corruption, framed in both legal and moral terms, and about a horrifying absence of ethics and transparency.

I think this is the right take or the closest to the truth. I'd also like the politicians to grow a pair and point out the obvious collusion with Israel and Saudi Arabia. Too much campaign cash at stake though which just tells you the whole thing is a joke. The Russian Villain gimmick is getting old even though they are a pain in the ass.
