It is as though AIPAC has now an occupy movement in our American democracy, just using us for weapons and money.

The decent Jews in this country better get their act together, especially with all the redneck crap and no gun control here. I’m not worried about maggot and the fascists, but I’m not Jewish either.

Want to defeat the backwards, corrupt, Dark Age SOBs? Get informed and vote. Sick Rott has already started blowing coin on ads down here. We haven’t had the Demo Primary yet, so something is spooking the worthless piece of crap. 💩💩

Bad news on his internal polling?

orlbucfan

Could very well be. If so, I hope they’re accurate!

Paul ADK

There IS a breaking point, for all of this. Perhaps Florida has reached it.

Classic. 😂 Might as well laugh at how ridiculously stupid they are!

as imports to Europe from Russia in May exceeded supplies from the United States for the first time in two years, writes the Financial Times.

Last month, Russian pipeline gas and LNG supplies accounted for 15 percent of total supplies to the EU, as well as the UK, Switzerland, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and North Macedonia, according to data analytics firm ICIS.

The share of liquefied natural gas from the United States was 14 percent, the lowest since August 2022.

The growth was mainly due to an increase in supplies of Russian LNG – due to the failure of one of the American export facilities. Russia has also sent more gas through Turkey ahead of scheduled maintenance in June. – ISZ reports

So, AOC is doing one rally and Bernie will appear in one separately for GOTV.

Benny

Actually…Bernie is participating in 2 rallies for Jamaal:

Bernie is nothing short of amazing with his age and stamina. 👏✊

It sounds like our wonderful talking heads have a very different take on Putin’s proposal to negotiate than Jeffrey Sachs. It’s funny how many of the platforms that give voice to the opposition are from a very different background from many of the speakers, but out of necessity to be heard, odd but I hope enduring friendships are being born.

Jeff and the Judge lol (but an important quick take). Putin came out with this in response to the fake “peace conference” in Switzerland that cost a lot of money, but didn’t get the global south to sign on to. Iraq and Jordan said their signatures got on by mistake (hopefully they will be taken off and, like India, they could have not signed anything), but India, South Africa, MBS, Saudi Arabia, Mexico and 9 more refused to sign anything created without Russia. Some countries, like China, Brazil and others didn’t send anyone.

Update. Their names have been removed. A rep from Brazil may have been there, but did not sign.
Enjoy.

I didn’t watch the Tonys last night but I wish I had just to see this:

Now, I’ve seen Townshend perform this live – 40 years ago – but the idea that he’s 80 and rockin it for his first opera makes me smile.

still got it. gotta see the whole thing now.

Just about everything that band did was classic.🎶

orlbucfan

He’s pretty much stone cold deaf, too. He said that all the wild stuff he used to do on stage cost him his hearing. He’s an icon, and he and the Who deserve it. 🎶🎸 Jay-Z sent in a video, and it got bad reviews and slammed. Good.

Paul ADK

Eh, so was Beethoven. The Who was one of the loudest bands in rock. It’s kind of amazing he made it to 80.

Paul ADK

I got to see him anchoring a star studded bill (with Joni Mitchel, Lou Reed, Donovan, Ritchie Havens, etc) on the site of the original Woodstock Festival. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing, by the time Townshend took the stage I was just numb. Rather overwhelmed with everything I saw that day. Still, I have to say it was probably the best show I ever saw.
