Putin lies and attempts to take control of Russia for another 16 years against people’s wishes

Putin has claimed that the Russian people have voted by a landslide to allow him to seek 2 more terms.

Election officials in #Russia say voters have approved amendments to the country’s constitution that will allow President Vladimir Putin (should the people vote for him) to stay in power until 2036. 

This man has strong armed his way into power and held on to it through fake elections and fear mongering using tactics learned from his time with the KGB when Russia was still known as U.S.S.R . This most recent election that allegedly has been popular with the Russian people involved week-long balloting and was tarnished by widespread reports of pressure on voters and other irregularities.

People being threatened, pressured, fear-mongered, and dying under mysterious circumstances is nothing new in Russia, especially under the #Putin regime. He has not only been the puppet master of the government in Russia, but has also stuck his nose and fingers in other countries, including the USA by trying to influence elections. His goal is to find people that idolize or sympathize with his strongman ways, such as America’s own President #Trump, a well know crony/puppet of Putin.

McGrath wins Kentucky Dem primary; McConnell showdown awaits


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Former Marine pilot Amy McGrath overcame a bumpier-than-expected Kentucky primary to win the Democratic U.S. Senate nomination Tuesday, fending off progressive Charles Booker to set up a bruising, big-spending showdown with Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Voting ended June 23, but it took a week until McGrath could be declared the winner due to the race’s tight margins and a deluge of mail-in ballots. The outcome seemed a certainty early in the campaign but became tenuous as Booker’s profile surged as the Black state lawmaker highlighted protests against the deaths of African Americans in encounters with police.

Why We Need Better Than POLITICS As Usual?

By Richard Brody  |   Submitted On June 26, 2020

We should have been prepared, when, then – candidate, Donald Trump, resorted to the campaign slogan, Make America Great Again! That reference to the so – called, Good Old Days, and, the inference, this nation, was no longer great, indicated a lack – of – vision, and, instead of looking ahead, with relevant, sustainable solutions, and a willingness to accept, good – enough! If, we continue to elect politicians, who resort to a combination of populism, empty promises, and rhetoric/ vitriol, when what’s needed, is thinking, outside – the – box, with an open – mind, the future of this country, may be, in – peril! What we need, is far better, than, mere, POLITICS as usual, if, we hope, to become the best, we possibly can, and truly, serve the needs, goals, priorities, perceptions, and best – interests, of all our citizens, and the potential, future challenges! With that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means and represents, and why it is significant.

Ozark Mist – a short poem

By Ricky D.

Photo by Ian Noble on Unsplash

A cool country morning, the mist hangs in the trees like gossamer webs.

I sip my tea while rocking in my chair on the porch.

I get a whiff of his coffee as he walks out to join me.

We sit in silence and enjoy the fresh morning air,

Sounds of bird songs fill the morning, an insect buzzes near my ear.

A deer runs in the distance, another following.

I look over and smile, I realize this is a good life.

This is our typical morning.

I am happy growing old this way.
