tRump will balk at that.  He won't pay that much!

This is it.

This is the headline.

So 0.76 pornstar pay-offs.  Sounds right.
 
2020-07-01 10:05:18 PM  
Is it still $130,000 for a sensual night of lovemaking with a GI?
/OK 5 minutes tops.

Is there a discount if you buy wholesale? Asking for a comrade.

Lets set the price of a Russian life in Syria at $105k

They wanna give the Taliban money to kill our folks? fark them.

Get him out of there
He is a disgrace and causing actual loss of life

He's the one getting paid. Trump doesn't care that American troops are being killed in Afghanistan for Russian money.

Well, one house is controlled by Democrats and the other house is controlled by Republicans, so the answer to your question is nothing, because that is all they can do right now.

If you really wanted to hurt Vlad, you would make it even harder for him and his oligarchs to move their money around the world.

/that will have to wait for Biden

At the national level Dems can't do anything but block bad legislation. They can't push anything through.
 
2020-07-02 12:26:44 AM  
You would think this would sink Trump, but the GOP is still defending him through silence.

Exactly this.  When Pelosi was first questioned about it, she said Well maybe Trump didn't read it.  He never reads his briefings.

Guess what excuse Trump has seized upon: that he never reads his briefings.

They're in this shiat together.

If you crazy libs hadn't been making him watch his half-cabinet's lunchtime puppet show summaries of the impeachment hearings, I'm pretty sure he would have taken care of this back in January. I mean, you expect him to sit there expending his energy doing nothing, and thendo something else later that same day?

The Republicans are taking the bet that most faithful needing to chose between their soldiers and Trump will pick Trump.
 
2020-07-02 2:39:39 AM  
Seems like there was a price range with that being at the top.  I wonder who they were paying $100,000 for, because you know they were never offering that much for your rank and file troops.

Oh fark off
 
2020-07-02 2:45:41 AM  
So... at best Trump has know since March and done nothing in response.

And that's extremely unlikely, since at minimum he, y'know, classified the intel to prevent anyone else (e.g. Congress) from taking any action on the matter.  Which is, y'know... Treason.

He was always going on about how he can declare anything classified he wanted (not really true, but kiiinda de facto true in the short term) right before this broke, too, just to make sure that he kept up his "every accusation a confession" and "there's always a tweet" streaks up.

It would never have happened during an election year and so close to the election at that.  The GOP would have screamed bloody murder and the result would have been the same if the process was even complete before the election.

Hmm... I'd never considered that.  I'm going to have to study it out.

At least they made it a nice round number, which tells me actuaries were not involved.

I mean Republicans elect thier Representatives and Senators based who can best sabotage the federal government. So if you want functional government in the near term, they have to be out of power entirely.

And it certainly doesn't help that everyone on the republican side is mentally incapacitated.

Is there a bag limit?
Is a Marine worth more than an Army soldier?
Are you supposed to avoid killing dumb-looking officers on the basis that they'll probably kill more of their own men if you let them live?
 
2020-07-02 3:07:31 AM  
I cannot imagine how the families of those Marines feel right now.

My son died - so what? So you could enable a known enemy of America to place a $100,000 bounty on his head, for what? Mother Russia?

Not to sound too overly horrible, but that's some pretty good scratch.  I figured GRU would cheap out and it would be like $5-10K a head. Now, I see it does say "up to", so who knows what the full range looks like?

/Putin does
// trump too
///Pompeo three
 
2020-07-02 3:12:16 AM  
I still don't believe in this story. Why is the media pushing it so hard yet refusing to show a shred of evidence that it's actually true?
Notwithstanding the fact that Trump is dumb, how do we know this isn't just propaganda to further destabilize the USA?
