I’m seeing reports that the Ukrainian government is unhappy with Joe Biden’s remarks about “minor incursions” and the like during his press conference this evening. Of course, now that Hunter is off the board at Burisma, the Bidens probably have no real assets worth protecting in Ukraine.
It’s been suggested that some folks would be useful to have the records of certain investigations disappear, which could happen in the tumult of a war. OTOH, having them fall into the hands of the ФСБ, …
It may be that certain people haven’t considered all the angles.
Here’s the TKPOTD from two years ago today. As we’ll see, it appears to have a connection to yesterday’s TKPOTD.

This post is up at Brett Kimberlin’s protectourelections dot org—Protect our elections?
Ummm … that’s about elections in Ukraine.
The Dread Deadbeat Protestor Kimberlin has renamed the 501(c)(4) not-for-profit VelvetRevolutionUS as “Protect Our Elections/EMPR, Inc.,” and empr dot media is a PR website promoting Ukraine’s interests. Perhaps this tells us exactly whose elections Brett Kimberlin views as “ours.”

Petro Poroshenko was the President of Ukraine who Joe Biden threatened with withholding U. S. aid unless the prosecutor investigating Burisma (a company with Hunter Biden on its board of directors) was fired. Poroshenko claimed that he was never pressured by Biden. Biden has bragged on video that his threat was effective. Biden’s and Poroshenko’s names reappear together in the news from time to time, and empr dot media’s news coverage appears to have a pro-Poroshenko/Biden slant.
The question remains—which nation’s elections does Brett Kimberlin view as “ours.”
Audio of what appears to be a telephone call between Vice President Biden and Ukrainian President Poroshenko has been posted on YouTube.
Biden was captured on another video bragging about using a threat to cut off aid to Ukraine in order to get a prosecutor fired. In the video below, Poroshenko says that they can’t find any evidence of corruption to use against the prosecutor who was investigating a company called Burisma Holding. Hunter Biden, the Vice President’s son, was on the board of Burisma making over $80k a month.
Meanwhile, back in the US more of a memo by Susan Rice relating to the shame investigation of Michael Flynn’s phone call with the Russian ambassador has been declassified. John Hinderacker has an excellent summary over at PowerLine of the newly exposed paragraph’s significance.
Rice foresaw that despite the Obama holdovers’ best efforts, the truth about their “Russia investigation” could come to light someday. If that happened, she wanted it to be on record that President Obama had authorized her to lie, on advice from James Comey. This is not surprising, but it fills an important gap in our understanding of the corruption of the Obama administration.
We haven’t heard the end of the Obama Administration’s corruption—both foreign and domestic. That briefcase Acting-DNI Grenell carried to the Justice Department was bulging. As Ambassador Kosh once said in an episode of Babylon 5, “The avalanche has already started; it is too late for the pebbles to vote.”
