Could Cotton buy an Indiana pizza?

"Cold War 2.0" by William Blum (with a list of recently dead Ukrainian politicians):
"As cynical as I’ve been for years about the American mainstream media’s treatment of ODE (Officially Designated Enemies), current news coverage of Russia exceeds my worst expectations. I’m astonished every day at the obvious disregard of any kind of objectivity or fairness concerning Russia. Perhaps the most important example of this bias is the failure to remind their audience that the US and NATO have surrounded Russia – with Washington’s coup in Ukraine as the latest example – and that Moscow, for some odd reason, feels threatened by this. (Look for the map online of NATO bases and Russia, with a caption like: “Why did you place your country in the middle of our bases?”)"
"Donbass: ‘The War Has Not Started Yet’" (give the pusillanimous Eurotrash something to think about):
". . . the People’s Republic of Donetsk is turbo-charging the political front. Foreign Minister Alexander Kofman – who confirms he’s having political discussions with members of some EU countries – says there are plans for a wide-ranging meeting in May, leading to the possible set up of an Institution of Unrecognized Nations which could include a lot of participants, from Donetsk and Lugansk to Catalonia and the Basque country."

Jewish billionaires use a delightful combination of bribes and blackmail to control American politicians:
  1. "Rep. Cotton gets hitched"  Picture is photoshopped - look at his right lapel.
  2.  "Tom Cotton’s sham marriage confirms he is a Manchurian Candidate"
  3. "Why Do So Many People in Arkansas Not Believe Tom Cotton Is Straight?"
"Toulouse mayor strips anti-Israel event of venue"

"The dystopian lake filled by the world’s tech lust":
"The intriguing thing about both neodymium and cerium is that while they’re called rare earth minerals, they're actually fairly common. Neodymium is no rarer than copper or nickel and quite evenly distributed throughout the world’s crust. While China produces 90% of the global market’s neodymium, only 30% of the world’s deposits are located there. Arguably, what makes it, and cerium, scarce enough to be profitable are the hugely hazardous and toxic process needed to extract them from ore and to refine them into usable products. For example, cerium is extracted by crushing mineral mixtures and dissolving them in sulphuric and nitric acid, and this has to be done on a huge industrial scale, resulting in a vast amount of poisonous waste as a byproduct. It could be argued that China’s dominance of the rare earth market is less about geology and far more about the country’s willingness to take an environmental hit that other nations shy away from."
