    Reposting from a reply to a Ukraine related post on a previuous page……

    President Zelensky seems to be very similar to Trump so he’s probably making the same sorts of moves & being schemed against in the same ways, by the same kinda people. Examples

    – Zelensky campaigned on “draining the swamp”, using that exact phrase in Ukrainian

    – he is emphatic that his policy goal is a achieve a cease-fire in the war w/ Russia & achieve peace; he even switches to fluent Russian in some speeches

    – Since Zelensky’s inauguration, former officials in Yanukovich’s administration have returned from exile following the bloodless coup d’etat the Obama Admin staged & supported in 2014

    – The man the Obama Admin installed, Poroshenko, has been under subpoena or summons by the Ukrainian FBI counterpart for months as a fact witness in a money laundering schme

    – On 24 July, same day as Mueller testimony, the Ukrainian FBI ocunterpart confirmed that Poroshenko had been on the premises but would not be specific

    – the next day, 25 July, day of call w/ Zelensky, he no-showed his scheduled interview by investigators

    • “Drain the swamp” is not an easy thing to do in any country, but now for the first tie we have two Governments who want to change the long-standing status quo, once and for all. That’s a monumental step forward … just to want it.

    a U.S. representative for Burisma Holdings sought a meeting with Undersecretary of State Catherine A. Novelli to discuss ending the corruption allegations against the Ukrainian firm where Hunter Biden worked as a board member, according to memos obtained under a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

    [ ]

    Hunter Biden’s name, in fact, was specifically invoked by the Burisma representative as a reason the State Department should help, according to a series of email exchanges among U.S. officials trying to arrange the meeting.

    The former Kerry Chief of Staff who was hired by Burisma is David Leiter of ML Stategies

    But Burisma is contacting officials in Washington through Leiter’s lobbying firm, ML Strategies. “ML Strategies is working with Burisma to educate U.S. officials about the company and its role in creating a stable and secure energy future for Ukraine, not any specific policy or legislation,” Pacheco said. “Burisma supports energy independence, economic growth, national sovereignty and regional stability and will engage as needed to encourage efforts to further these goals.”

    Some Democratic senators, meanwhile, have been working to secure more U.S. funding, either directly or through entities like the Export-Import Bank, to improve Ukraine’s domestic energy production potential. On June 27, Sen. Edward Markey of Massachusetts, wrote President Obama a letter with three other Democratic senators calling for increased aid. “We should leverage the full resources and expertise of the U.S. government to assist Ukraine in improving its energy efficiency, increasing its domestic production, and reforming its energy markets,” wrote Markey, who has also proposed legislation with about $40 million in additional aide for Ukranian energy development.

    “ Most Southeast Asian leaders skipped a summit on Monday with U.S. representatives after President Donald Trump decided to avoid the annual meetings for a second straight year.”

    Leaders from Thailand, Laos and Vietnam were the only ones to show up from the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations for the summit with National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien, who was leading the U.S. delegation. It was the lowest level representation for the U.S. at the meetings since Barack Obama upgraded ties with Asean in 2011.”

    “ Trump invites ASEAN leaders to ‘special summit’ in US after skipping Bangkok meet”

    Excerpt:

    “Monday’s sparsely attended address from O’Brien stood in contrast to earlier ASEAN meetings, which had all been attended by most heads of state.
    At this year’s summit, US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross was the highest-ranking delegation official, prompting the 10-member grouping to downgrade the summit to a “troika” attended only by top leaders from Thailand, Vietnam and Laos.
    “It’s not appropriate for ASEAN to send leaders when the US representation is not on parity,” one diplomat in Bangkok told AFP.”

    Contrast (from Party mouthpiece) Xinhua:

    Chinese premier calls for more solidarity, coordination within framework of ASEAN+3

    “ BANGKOK, Nov. 4 (Xinhua) — Chinese Premier Li Keqiang here on Monday attended the 22nd ASEAN-China, Japan and South Korea (10+3) leaders’ meeting, calling on the participating countries to strengthen solidarity and coordination.
    Noting the mechanism of 10+3 cooperation was born in response to the Asian financial crisis and has gone through an extraordinary development, Li said it has not only benefited countries and peoples in the region, but also makes positive contributions to Asian and global economic development.
    The mechanism has become a successful model for regional cooperation, and its experience is precious, Li said.
    Li said the international landscape undergoes profound and complicated changes, the world is facing economic slowdown and growing protectionism, bringing new risks and challenges to the development of East Asian countries.
    “The 10+3 countries have the duty to strengthen solidarity and coordination to jointly guard against risks and challenges, and to inject new driving force into the stable growth of regional and global economy,” said the premier.
    Ten ASEAN members plus China, Japan and South Korea, should further tap into potentials for more substantial outcomes under the 10+3 mechanism, Li said.
    Noting that 15 member states of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) have concluded all text negotiations and essentially all market access negotiations, Li said it is a major breakthrough in the construction of an East Asia free trade area, which would boast the largest population, most diversified membership and greatest potential for development.
    The latest progress, added the premier, will certainly promote the process of regional economic integration, safeguard free trade and boost market confidence.
    “On this basis, we are willing to accelerate negotiations on the China-Japan-South Korea free trade area and move towards the goal of building an East Asian economic community,” said Li.
    He also called for joint efforts to support regional connectivity, enhance regional financial cooperation, promote sustainable development and deepen people-to-people and cultural exchanges.
    Leaders attending the meeting positively evaluated the achievements of the 10+3 cooperation in boosting regional economic and social development in the past year.
    They highly appreciated the major breakthrough in RCEP negotiations, and pledged to sign an agreement in 2020, so as to enhance regional trade and investment liberalization and facilitation.
    The leaders said they welcome the issued reconnectivity statement to promote high-quality infrastructure construction, and support the efforts to maintain economic and financial stability.
    They also said the 10+3 bloc should play a leading role to enhance mechanism building, lift levels of interdependence, expand cooperations, jointly address challenges, and contribute to regional stability and prosperity.
    Monday’s meeting was chaired by Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha and attended by regional leaders including South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.”

    Mitt Romney Sucks! The minimal-man actually sickens myself.

    I do not see how this nothing animal has 11% approval. This scumbag literally BOUGHT his Senator Seat in Utah! He PURCHASED the Office he currently holds! The State of Utah should be analyzed deeply. They elect a carpetbagger from the East Coast immediately and clearly without any question. (I do not care about his past Utah Olympics crap decades ago..it’s meaningless).

    I’m from California where there is ZERO voting rules/laws to prohibit ANY-BODY from voting in ANY election (illegal aliens, foreign vacationers and anybody else), can actually cast a vote here.

    Nearly 1/2 of OUR United States DO NOTE care (NO ID Required), who casts a Vote…but I thought Utah had a bit of a more Robust voting system…(?)
