Russia to the surprise of nobody is preparing to recognize the Taliban as the legitimate leader of Afghanistan

Russia ‘s top brass has confirmed that the country is in fact in contact with the Taliban and reportedly planning to help the group secure its legitimacy as the government behind Afghanistan. Reuters was first to report the news, although, most of it remains unclear due to most deceptive practices coming out of Russia. The outlet also reported on Monday that Afghanistan’s weak former President Ghani fled the country via helicopter with four different cars and a massive amount of money. It is partially understood that the stolen money likely came from the state’s budget. Government officials and media outlets were unable to independently confirm where he exactly Russia is understood to be the first country preparing to recognize the criminal organisation. Formally recognizing ...

Report: Federal authorities suspect Rudy Giuliani wasn’t just working for Trump

Giuliani 's hot bed relationship with mega-rich Ukranian people has come back to haunt him again. According to the New York Times, Giuliani 's apartment following the raid is now the subject of whether or not he was actually working for a foreign power all along. Part of the stunning raid surrounds that fact and the idea that Rudy did not register with the Justice Department as a lobbyist for a foreign power (which is lawfully required in the United States not illegal but most certainly required.) The news comes as many suspect Russia and such is still meddling in America for reasons that aren't exactly known. Rudy has never seemed all that bothered though appears to have potentially known since 2019 that he was being targeted by Russia. A separate Washington Post story confir...

For reasons that are unclear, Russia is reviving the Haunted House of the Soviets

For reasons that probably are a little stranger than the New York Times could find, Russia is making big improvements to a historical building. But not just any building — in fact the former House of Soviets in Kalingrad. According to a wild story in the New York Times, the building has been mostly vacant for nearly 42 years. Though a recently authorized project now appears to be on the horizon thanks to an overzealous construction agency. The rumored haunted house is going to be demolished and reconstructed though not everybody is thrilled at the idea. Russia houses nuclear plants nearby.

The U.S House is expected to impeach Trump a 2nd time today

Today mark's yet another historic day in America. According to reports in Washington and the U.S House itself Donald Trump is expected to face a 2nd vote today that would make him the first President to be impeached twice. It remains unclear whether or not the Senate will actually follow suit and convict, although, numerous reports indicate that Mitch McConnell wants him purged. Interestingly, Mike Pence reportedly is not on board with neither the 25th amendment nor impeachment. According to a letter signed by Pence (see below), he called the joint-moves "political games" as charged by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The New York Times ran a story this morning citing several media reports and indicators in Washington that Mitch McConnell is moving to oust and convict Donald Trump f...

Home of Russian activist Lyubov Sybol raided by opposition ‘s criminal mob

MOSCOW, RUSSIA —- A woman we’ve previously written about before Lyubov Sybol is back in the headlines once again. This time the activist is currently in police custody according to reports amid a likely false investigation against her. According to local media reports and the country ‘s main investigative body, they claim without much publicly available evidence that Sobol kowingly threatened a federal security officer (we’re working to confirm this claim.) AP/PC Sobol is a known ally of Mr. Navalny a foe of the Russian government and considered to be a member of the group gunning for the fall of the Russian government in the country. Alike Sobol, they’re both fighting for a more Democratic government rather than the current run by demagogues. Today at 7 am the police came ...

Deep Dive: How Russia’s crackdown on opposition actually works

Vladamir Putin -- one of the world's most repressive leaders has been the leader of Russia for about as long as this newspaper has been alive. Throughout hellbent; illegal, and forced/botched elections -- Putin has maintained his grip on modern Russia longer than any other Soviet leader in history. Anti-Putin protesters hold up X'd out photographs of the Russian President in an undated photograph. With the help of Russian insiders via the dark web, I've managed to obtain insider information as to how Russia cracks down on opposition leaders; stifles anyone whom is anti-Putin, and uses religious freedoms to stifle the most basic and common of human rights. Vladamir Putin and his administration have long held the thought that if you're Russian.. you're automatically pro-Putin...

Russia: The United States is a threat to our national security

There are lists, and then, there are lists you just don't want to be on. In Russia's case, that would be Putin's  "Terror" list against Moscow.  In an annual news conference (and subsequent list released on New Years Eve) Putin claimed that the United States "& Co" are "deliberately and cooperatively panning against Moscow to cause great physical and economical harm to Russia". "The strengthening of Russia happens against the background of new threats to the national security, which has complex and interrelated nature," the letter reads.

The U.S didn’t want Ecuador to endorse breastfeeding

That title, unfortunately, isn't some bizarre joke written by the Common Room.  The New York Times is out again with some interesting information on the Trump Administration. Over the weekend,   the country of Ecuador apparently proposed a rightful  UN resolution that would encourage and eventually endorse breastfeeding on a worldwide scale. Ironically,   the U.S,  turned around and threatened Ecuador with a trade war and sanctions against its military and the revocation of its military aid if it went through with the resolution. But, per the Times, it gets more interesting from there. Instead of flat-out voicing its  distaste with the measure,  the U.S,  turned around and supported Russia's apparent move on the measure but denied Ecuador the right to do just that.  The U.S is on...

Sources: The Russian agents in Salisbury were targeted with a nerve agent

SALISBURY --  The information you are about to read has not been made publicly available as of yet, and,  we are not taking calls on how we obtained this information. Sources have come forth this evening, revealing, just how two former Russian agents ended up critically ill  and  slumped over in Salisbury. The source, who spoke to The Daily News via our secure phone line,    revealed that  the chemical agent found in the in/near Zizzi's restaurant  is in fact a lethal nerve agent.   "This is/was a deliberate attack by Russian  spies, who, were ordered by the Kremlin to kill Sergei Skripal and his daughter  Yulia.  They were ordered killed to prevent them from talking to the British government, but, only after they had been made by the British government"  the source says.

Trump ‘s legal team wants second special counsel over Robert Mueller

Donald Trump 's legal team has apparently requested a second special counsel amid Robert Mueller 's shocking investigation into the Trump Administration.   Axios reports that Trump 's legal team is exploring multiple options,   mostly, because of the Justice Department (and the recent scandals surrounding it).

Russia wants to end Facebook entirely: Report

But only because of a little known law that Russia is quietly trying to enforce. Back in 2014, the Kremlin passed a law that would eventually allow said Kremlin to collect social media users' information by the masses when it wants. The law, uh, was originally meant to ensure the privacy and safety of all Russians and their information. But, that same law, was later discovered to actually be a ploy by the Kremlin to crush online anonymity and demand that  digital monikers be unmasked. By doing so, Russia,  would soon be able to know (and by all means literally) who is who and whom is writing what.  Opposition to the law has been strong. So here's what it means. Linkedin has been banned in Russia for some time, essentially, for refusal to turn over user information.  Something, th...

Trump wants to build cybersecurity unit with Russia

Perhaps indicating that the Trump Administration is trying to master the art of historically ironic.  According to Donald Trump,   he and Russian Pres Vladamir Putin apparently had "great talks". So much so, that the two hostile nations have now apparently announced that they will create a cybersecurity unit to "help combat election fraud; election hacking and any interference in a country's democracy". Yes, this is real folks: America is officially and formally in bed with Moscow.   The news comes after Trump and daughter Ivanka appeared at the G-20 summit in Hamburg, where, she uh, almost illegally sat in for Trump at a particular meeting that has the internet talking.  The photo, taken by a Russian lawyer,  sees Ivanka, literally, next to some of the most powerful women on earth. ...

Trump admits he shared classified intel with Russia, admission backfires

Sparking concerns of what much of the world already knew: Donald Trump is in bed with the Russians.  Hours after the Washington Post reported that Trump had shared classified terrorism information related to that (uh, infamous laptop ban) with Russian officials, Trump, has now confirmed he did such himself. In two tweets,  Trump, confirmed that he indeed shared information with the Russians citing that he "has the absolute right to do so". "As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism." Meanwhile the admission has fueled concerns that Trump has been ha...

Russian bombers have been found along the Alaskan coast: Reports

ANCHORAGE, ALASKA -- According to U.S defense officials,  the United States Air Force reportedly intercepted multiple  TU-95 BEAR bomber planes of the coast of Alaska.  The bomber planes apparently zoomed in on Kodiak Island on Monday evening, a feat, that triggered the U.S Air Force to send fighter jets to intercept their actions. While the U.S has denied that Russia is attempting any funny business,  others, aren't so sure as to why Vladamir Putin sent bomber jets to the west coast of the United States.   Officials say that the jets found near Kodiak Island are capable of carrying nuclear weapons. Officials refused to comment on whether or not this was an act of "war".
