Senate committee opens investigation into Russian uranium bribes to Clintons

Some real Russian collusion! The Senate Judiciary committee has opened an investigation into the revelations yesterday that the Clinton Foundation received significant money from the Russians prior to Hillary Clinton’s approval in 2010 of a deal giving Russia control of 20 percent of the U.S. uranium resources, and that the FBI had evidence of this pay-for-play and the Obama administration covered it up.

Unlike the empty accusations of Russian collusion against Trump, which have been based on zero evidence, these allegations involve some solid facts, including documented contributions by the Russians, in the millions, to the Clintons and their foundation.

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

    In case anyone wondered, the Weinstein rape “secret” is bursting in Sweden too now with a couple of top media men massively accused by several women for rapes and sexual abuses. I don’t know about other countries, but this could be rocking the entire global feminist and media industry foundationally. As in their very definition for their reason to exist.

    In Sweden MSM stayed completely silent for several days. Only bloggers (like some Swedish versions of Bob Z here) forced them to make ever greater concessions during the last days and hours and finally fire them because of the police investigations and public witnesses that can no longer be ignored.

    They go down in flames so much that even Satan himself complains about the sudden immigration boom to Hell! “-It’s hard to do the paper works in this heat”, Satan complains while scratching his left horn where he sits in a gigantic lava tube deep, very deep, under Olympus Mons.

    LocalFluff This type of behavior is nothing new to humanity. The men of the North American Indian tribes held complete power over the females!!!! As I learned in linguistic classes, the women even had a language they did not teach to boys. There was a need. The cannibals of New Guinea also had rampant homosexuality and the Nobel prize winner for his discovery of prions did jail time when some boys he brought back to America complained about the homosexual activities by that Nobel prize winner. In Canada it is true that where there are secluded areas, sexual predication runs rampant. I have been told that it exists on the reserves of the USA.

    Great that this is coming to light. I truly feel sorry for the Hollywoodites. It explains why there is rampant drug abuse with those folk and why their lives are a mess.

    Of course sexual harassment is wrong and should be stopped.
    But the Hollywood types whining about Weinstein have little more credibility than when they and their Dem friends accuse Trump of colluding with Russia.
    They do have more credibility because Weinstein did actually harass women, but how can I take them seriously when they still defend bill Clinton and Roman Polansky.
    And they lined up behind Hillary who aided Bill’s harassment by defending him and viciously attacking his victims.
    It’s clear the only reason Weinstein went down is because his business became weak and he no longer had the power to grant his victims wishes.
    Any powerless female in Hollywood who thinks the elite piling on Harvey will defend them…fugettaboutit!

    @Phill O
    What is new is that they call themselves feminists. MSM has totally destroyed everyone’s’ confidence in it. Just imagine the rape violence going on in the political LGBTQ community.

    Feminists are rapists. Climate doomsday is postponed. News are fake. Islamism is the opposite of multi-culture. Assets are debt. Voters vote wrong.
    Is that all or is there more than everything that goes wrong for the politically correct little sect?

    @LocalFluff One of my nurse sisters worked in emergency for awhile. The violence in the homosexual community is as rampant as in the native communities. All hushed up.
