Working To Outlaw Abortion First Was Just Stupid And I Think It Was Intentionally Done To Sabotage Conservative Momentum.

When they first moved to outlaw it in states I knew they had made a big mistake and felt it was done as a way to undermine republican and conservative momentum. That should have not been the first thing they moved to outlaw. And moving forward I would not focus on that being the primary goal at this time. Should have left that alone until you secured power.

There Are Strategic Ways To Do It…Not To Raise The Flag’: Undercover Video Catches Wife Of Colorado Senator Admitting Dems Are Quietly Defunding The Police – And That The Inflation Reduction Act Is Really A Health And Climate Bill.

A Colorado Senator came under fire just one day before Election Day after a video emerged showing his wife suggesting Democrats defund the police ‘quietly’ and laughing about the name of the Inflation Reduction Act.

Undercover journalists with Accuracy in Media filmed Susan Daggett, the law professor wife of Sen. Michael Bennet, as she spoke about the Defund the Police movement and the Inflation Reduction Act.

She said in the video that ‘the most successful efforts in Washington DC are the ones that you never see on the front page of the paper’ and told the undercover reporters they should not talk openly about how the Inflation Reduction Act is really a health and climate bill.

The video was then posted on YouTube Monday, just one day before Coloradoans go to the polls to either re-elect Bennet or vote for his opponent, Joe O’Dea, a moderate Republican who is endorsed by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Now, with just hours to go before Election Day, the O’Dea campaign is blasting Bennet as a ‘radical’ who, along with other Democrats in Congress, is ‘trying to pull a fast one on the American people.’

But the Bennet campaign has pushed back against the tactics used by the undercover journalists, telling FOX News it was ‘despicable ambush theater.’ Democratic Sen.

Trump says Melania ‘likes the idea’ of wearing a face mask

In the Accuracy in Media video posted online Monday, Daggett, a law professor at the University of Denver, could be seen standing outside her home one night speaking to a man and a woman.

The man starts off by asking her about the Defund the Police movement, and what she thinks about Democrat messaging on the issue.

‘I think, you know, Michael would say calling it Defund the Police was not the smartest move on the outset because that’ not really what we’re talking about,’ she replies. ‘But everything is partisan, like everything that can become a wedge issue is these days.

‘And so probably the smartest thing to do is just take the temperature down, and you know, just quietly … The most successful efforts in Washington DC are the ones you never see on the front page of the paper.’

Daggett then suggested talking about the issue ‘for half a second and then let the temperature come down, and then quietly allocate some funding to mental health, right, and to interventions that could help, and maybe not call it police reform.

‘There’s just strategically ways to do it that would be just as effective, but you know, not raise the flag.’ 

At that point, the male interviewer asks her whether that’s the same thing Democrats did with the Inflation Reduction Act, which he said had ‘so many great things,’ while his female companion said there was a lot about the climate in the bill.

‘Right, don’t talk about it,’ she responds, laughing. ‘Just, just yeah.’ 

The video ends with Daggett saying she hopes President joe Biden does not run again in 2024.Sen Michel Bennet is pictured here with his wife and their two daughters in 2009

After viewing the video, the campaign for Republican challenger Joe O’Dea said it proves the Bennets are ‘radicals.’

‘It’s that quiet part out loud now,’ campaign manager Zack Roday told FOX News.

‘Even on the Inflation Reduction Act, flat out admitting that that wasn’t the intent of the legislation and laughing about the title of it. The media and the Democrats called it that until the moment it was passed, and then it became a climate bill, and that’s exactly what Michael Bennet did in terms of how he talked about it.

‘And it’s just so disappointing because this is exactly what so many fear about radical leadership under the Biden-Bennet agenda,’ he continued.

‘It’s that they’re truly trying to pull a fast one on the American people,’ Roday said. ‘She admits what, in fact, the agenda has been for the last two years.’

He also commented on Daggett’s rhetoric about the Defund the Police movement, saying: ‘One of the biggest solutions to reducing crime is more cops.

‘We need to champion them,’ Roday said. ‘We need to give them the funding they need, and that’s part of the reason that the Democrats are going to fall on November 8, tomorrow, is because they’re just out of touch.’ The Bennet campaign slammed the Accuracy in Media journalists for their tacticsThe O'Dea campaign said it proves Democrats are 'trying to pull a fast one on the American people'

The Bennet campaign slammed the Accuracy in Media journalists for their tactics, while the O’Dea campaign said it proves Democrats are ‘trying to pull a fast one on the American people.’ Both candidates are pictured here at a debate on October 28

The Bennet campaign, meanwhile, blasted the Accuracy in Media journalists saying: ‘This isn’t journalism; it’s despicable ambush theater.

‘It’s disgusting that Joe O’Dea and his campaign are endorsing this tactic,’ campaign manager Justin LaMorte said. ‘Takin aim at a candidate’s wife is straight out of the Donald Trump playbook.’

The campaign also accused the journalists of secretly taping Daggett under false pretenses and selectively editing the video.

It says that two unnamed people, one claiming to be a graduate student at the university Daggett works, claimed to be canvassing the neighborhood when they filmed the video.

But Accuracy in Media President Adam Guillette pushed back against criticism.

‘I love that police officers wear body cams,’ he said. ‘And I’d love a world where politicians wore body cams.

The next best thing is an investigative journalist with a hidden camera.’The video comes as former New Jersey Gov Chris Christie (pictured) says he expects O'Dea to oust Bennet on Tuesday ¿ despite polls suggesting otherwise

The video comes as former New Jersey Gov Chris Christie says he expects O’Dea to oust Bennet on Tuesday — despite polls suggesting otherwise.

Speaking on ABC’s This Week on Sunday, Christie said: ‘The other upset and surprise you’re going to see I think on Tuesday night is Joe O’Dea, the Republican candidate for United States Senate in Colorado, is going to beat Michael Bennet. And that’s going to be a huge surprise.’ 

But polls show Bennet has the edge in the race, which is rated ‘lean Democrat’ by the nonpartisan Cook Political Report.

And an Emerson College-The Hill poll of likely voters late last month found Bennet had a seven-point lead.

Former Mayor And Now Secretary Of Transportation ‘Pete Buttigieg’ Appears To Be Completely Out Of His Depth As Airline Crisis Spirals Completely Out Of Control.

Top Democrats slam Pete Buttigieg for failing to stop ‘airmageddon’ and demand he imposes fines of $55,000 for EACH passenger on cancelled flights as 312 more are axed and 4,378 are delayed

  • Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Ro Khanna of California both called for Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to take action ahead of the holiday 
  • By Sunday evening, 312 flights had been canceled and 4,366 were delayed by Sunday evening during the busiest holiday weekend since the pandemic began
  • Sanders urged Buttigieg to require airlines to refund passengers for flights delayed more than an hour, impose fines of a rate of $55,000 per passenger
  • United Airlines canceled 55 flights and delayed 314 by Sunday night 
  • Delta canceled  53 flights and delayed 433, American Airlines canceled 29 and delayed 533
  • Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg told Americans to seek compensation for their canceled flights like he did rather than discuss ways to fix the chaos 

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is under fire from leading figures in his own party for failing to stop ‘airmageddon’ flight hell as travel chaos continued through the Fourth of July weekend.

More than 312 flights were canceled and 4,378 were delayed by Sunday evening during the busiest holiday weekend since the pandemic began.

Another 88 have so-far been canceled for Monday – although that number will likely rise exponentially as July 4 travel commences, affecting thousands of Americans returning from a long weekend away. 

Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Ro Khanna of California both called for Buttigieg to take action well ahead of the holiday weekend, according to letters they sent out last week. 

Sanders urged Buttigieg to require airlines to refund passengers for flights delayed more than an hour, impose fines of a rate of $55,000 per passenger for flights delayed for more than two hours, and fines for airlines that cannot ‘properly staff’ scheduled flights.

As travel chaos escalated over the weekend as feared, Sanders took to Twitter to once again called out Buttigieg to set a plan in motion.

‘The Department’s incremental response so far has been lacking the urgency, imagination, and boldness to meet the moment and needs of the American people,’ he wrote.

Khanna told The American Prospect: ‘Buttigieg needs to make clear that he has the authority to go after the airlines for unfair and deceptive practices. He needs to lay out a framework for what the consequences will be for canceled flights, understaffing, and misrepresentations to passengers.’ 

Buttigieg, who previously called on airlines to get in shape before the weekend, appeared to give up on getting things under control yesterday as he told Americans to follow his lead and claim compensation over the canceled flights. 

‘Airlines offer miles as compensation for some travel issues, and you can often negotiate on this,’ tweeted Buttigieg, who said he got back $112.07 over his canceled flight on Friday after he was initially offered about $30 back. 

‘Sometimes an airline will offer you points or miles as compensation, but you are entitled to a cash refund when your flight is canceled.’

Delta has taken to drastic measures to quell customer dissatisfaction, with passengers from one overbooked Delta flight reporting that the airline offered eight passengers $10,000 each to forfeit their seats last week. 

Around 48 million people are expected to travel this weekend with AAA estimating 3.5million would take to the air. But the actual number of passengers flying may be dramatically higher as, the Transportation Security Administration screened more than 2.1 million travelers at airports on Saturday alone.

Leading major U.S. airlines in cancellations on yesterday was American Airlines, which canceled 102 flights and delayed 889 flights. Delta followed behind, canceling 82 flights and delaying 535.

United Airlines canceled 43 flights and delayed 492, and Southwest has called off 25 flights and delayed 1,048 flights. 

Since the hectic Juneteenth travel weekend, the U.S. has seen more than 12,000 flights cancelled, according to FlightAware. 

In addition to airport chaos and heavy traffic, holiday travelers will have to contend with higher prices. Average gas prices have soared 56 percent from a year ago, mid-range hotel prices have increased 23 percent, and average lowest airfares are up 14 percent. 

In total, AAA projects that 47.9 million Americans will travel for the Fourth this year, up 3.7 percent from last year and close to the historic peak reached in 2019, before the pandemic struck.At least 312 flights were canceled by 11 p.m. Sunday night and a staggering 4,244 delayed, according to FlightAware , which reported that by the end of Saturday, 654 US flights were called off and 5,860 were delayed

Fourth Of July travel by the numbers 

Here’s how the travel projections for this holiday weekend stack up against last year, according to AAA: 

 2021 (actual)

  • Average gas price: $3.12
  • Drivers on the road: 41.8M
  • Air travelers: 3.5M
  • Others taking trips (bus, train): 900K
  • Total travelers: 46.2M
  • Average airfare: $176
  • Average hotel cost: $198
  • Average car rental cost: $166

 2022 (forecast)

  • Average gas price: $4.86
  • Drivers on the road: 42M
  • Air travelers: 3.55M
  • Others taking trips (bus, train): 2.42M
  • Total travelers: 47.9M
  • Average airfare: $201
  • Average hotel cost: $244
  • Average car rental cost: $110

In addition, the Biden administration is blaming the airlines, saying it received billions in stimulus money to keep afloat during the pandemic and should stick to the schedule it publishes. 

Buttigieg said earlier this month that airlines had until July 4 to figure out the issues and work out the kinks so travelers can have a smooth summer holiday.   

Buttigieg pushed back earlier this week when the head of the trade group Airlines for America blamed the FAA for delays.

‘The majority of cancellations and the majority of delays have nothing to do with air traffic control staffing,’ Buttigieg told NBC Nightly News.

Amid the Fourth of July travel chaos, many are calling on Buttigieg to act rather than give out advice on how to get compensation like he did. 

One Twitter user with the handle, The Dude, wrote: ‘Hey Pete … maybe, as Secretary of Transportation, you should be meeting with FAA, major airlines and other key folk involved – slamming your fist on the table and demanding they work out these issues and a plan to address the problems … not update us on frequent flyer miles. 

Another Twitter user with the handle, Limstone Caulk, added: ‘How about, people just want to go somewhere when they actually paid to go?’ 

Brian Jackson, another Twitter user, said he, too, wanted Buttigieg to be proactive in the situation.

‘You know [as] the Secretary of Transportation you could maybe I don’t know fix the root cause of the delays so no one would need a refund and would actually get to their destination?’ 

Another Twitter user with the handle Pantazopopulos wrote:  ‘How bout you actually find out the reasons the airlines are having issues and see if there is a way to help, I mean, if you’re not busy, since you are Transportation Secretary.’

President Joe Biden has been under fire for inflation that has reached its highest point in 41 years and has squeezed the finances of millions of Americans.

He has blamed Vladimir Putin‘s invasion of Ukraine and the COVID pandemic for the surge in prices – and now has pointed to inflation being a global issue.

In an interview with the Associated Press that was conducted Thursday, he slapped back suggestions he is to blame.

‘Isn’t it kind of interesting? If it’s my fault, why is it the case in every other major industrial country in the world that inflation is higher? You ask yourself that? I’m not trying to be a wise guy,’ he told AP reporter Josh Boak in the Oval Office.

While prices having been rising across the globe, the inflation in the U.S. has been higher than the G7 nations and China for most of the year.

The United Kingdom with a four-decade high of 8.6 percent has only just surpassed inflation in the United States.

But nations including Germany, France, Japan and Canada are all still behind the U.S. when it comes to prices.

Data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development from April 2021 until April 2022 shows U.S. inflation has been rising steadily above all other nations.

President Joe Biden argued that he couldn't be responsible for inflation because it's higher 'in every other major industrial country in the world'
President Joe Biden argued that he couldn’t be responsible for inflation because it’s higher ‘in every other major industrial country in the world’

Talking to the AP,  Biden also pointed out that under his watch the deficit has been reduced and employment has gone up.

But the Democratic president acknowledged that Americans are paying vastly more to put food on their table and fuel in their cars and that it was putting a dent in his approval rating.

‘If you want a direct barometer of what people are going to talk about at the kitchen table and the dining room table and whether things are going well, it’s the cost of food and what´s the cost of gasoline at the pump,’ he admitted.

He blamed high gas prices for the nation’s economic pessimism, saying before prices started rising, ‘Things were much more, they were much more optimistic.’ 

But while Biden said his message to oil companies was ‘Don’t just reward yourselves,’ he has few tools at his disposal to meaningfully bring down prices in the near term.  

After more than two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, Biden said the American people are ‘really, really down.’ 

He emphasized that the need for mental health in America ‘has skyrocketed because people have seen everything upset.’

Biden maintained that he’s optimistic about the country’s future, and that Americans should feel it too – even as the majority of voters say the country is on the wrong track.

‘Be confident, because I am confident we’re better positioned than any country in the world to own the second quarter of the 21st century,’ Biden said. ‘That´s not hyperbole, that’s a fact.’

Still, it wasn’t clear whether Biden’s rhetoric would have a tangible impact on the nation’s glum outlook. 

Biden also said he didn’t consider the domestic political impact from U.S. efforts to sanction Russia over its invasion of Ukraine, particularly how it would roil the economy.

Without such action, he said, ‘I fear what would happen next is you´d see chaos in Europe.’ He added: ‘It´s not about my political survival. It´s about what´s best for the country.’

Biden suggested that he’s willing to pay a political price as a result, saying his advice to young people interested in public service is, ‘Unless you know what´s worth losing over, don´t get engaged.’

On the domestic policy front, Biden suggested he still believed a slimmed-down version of the ‘Build Back Better’ bill could pass Congress before the November midterms.  

Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin’s objections torpedoed the earlier efforts over inflation concerns.

Biden needs all 50 Democrats to support a package in order to get around GOP opposition under the Senate’s budget rules.

‘There’s more than one way to bring down the cost for working folks,’ Biden said. ‘Gasoline may be up to $5 a gallon, but somebody who has a child with stage two diabetes is paying up to 1,000 bucks a month for their insulin. We can reduce it to 35 bucks a month and get it done.’

He added: ‘We have the votes to do it. We’re gonna get that done. I can’t get it all done.’

Biden also suggested there was consensus on providing tax credits for winterizing homes, which would help lower utility bills, and to boost domestic semiconductor manufacturing to address supply chain issues that have driven up prices.

Biden was optimistic about a bipartisan framework to address gun violence by tightening some background check requirements for young firearm purchasers and incentivizing states to establish ‘red flag’ laws to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill.

As lawmakers draft the legislative text, momentum appears to be building in the Senate after decades of inaction and mass tragedies. 

Biden acknowledged the progress, albeit limited.

‘We’re going to get gun safety,’ he said, adding, ‘We´re not going to get what I wanted.’

Despite years of political differences, Biden said he still views Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell as a Republican he can work with – something he said he considered an endangered species in today’s GOP.

The president said that when he took office, he knew that there ‘were probably, probably 15 sort of traditional, mainstream, conservative Republicans left. And I include in that – and I´m going to get myself in trouble, gonna get him in trouble, probably – the minority leader from Kentucky.’

Biden added of McConnell, ‘He´s a solid, mainstream guy.’

The president, who has taken to branding other Republicans as ‘ultra-MAGA,’ said examples included Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson and Florida Sen. Rick Scott.

Russian president Vladimir Putin today accused the US of playing God and treating countries like ‘colonies’ as he brushed off the impact of sanctions in a speech to an economic forum dubbed ‘Russia‘s Davos’.

Amid a lengthy denunciation of the US and its allies, Putin, 69, warned ‘nothing will be as it used to be’ as he delivered the St Petersburg Economic Forum address more than 90 minutes later than expected after the event suffered a cyber attack.   

When he eventually took to the stage, Putin issued a thinly-veiled threat to oligarchs thinking of quitting his regime. 

‘It’s safer in your own house,’ he said. ‘Those who didn’t want to listen to this have lost millions abroad.’

Putin spent much of the 73-minute address focussing intently on his notes, as he warned Russians ‘are strong people and can cope with any challenge’.

He said: ‘Like our ancestors, we will solve any problem, the entire thousand-year history of our country speaks of this.’

Putin drew applause from the hall when he reaffirmed his determination to continue the ‘special military operation’ in Ukraine that has unleashed what he said was an ‘unprecedented’ barrage of Western economic sanctions.

Putin warned the US and its allies ‘think they have won’ and said Moscow’s war in Ukraine had become a ‘lifesaver for the West to blame all the problem on Russia.’ 

He added that the US considers itself ‘God’s emissary on Earth’, and that Western sanctions were founded on a false premise that Russia had no economic sovereignty.

Russia’s flagship economic forum kicked off on Wednesday, with attendees including representatives of the Taliban and separatist authorities from eastern Ukraine. The event is scheduled to run until Saturday.

The Russian leader is set to be be joined by Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, Kazakhstan’s Kassym-Jomart Tokayev and Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik.Russian president Vladimir Putin today accused the US of treating countries like 'colonies' as he brushed off the impact of sanctions in a key speech to an economic forum dubbed ' Russia 's Davos'+12View gallery

 Putin, speaking at the event on Friday, declared the end of ‘the era of the unipolar world’. He said: ‘When they won the Cold War, the US declared themselves God’s own representatives on earth, people who have no responsibilities – only interests. 

‘They have declared those interests sacred. Now it’s one-way traffic, which makes the world unstable’.

Putin went on to blame the West for trying to damage the Russian economy with ‘crazy’ and ‘reckless’ sanctions.  

‘Their intention is clear to crush the Russian economy by breaking down the chain the logistical chains, freezing national assets and attacking the living standards, but they were not successful,’ he said. 

‘It has not worked out. Russian business people have rallied together working diligently, conscientiously, and step-by-step, we are normalising the economic situation.’

He said the main aim of the incursion was to defend ‘our’ people in the largely Russian-speaking Donbas region of eastern Ukraine – a justification that Kyiv and the West dismiss as a baseless pretext for a war that has already led to the occupation of parts of southern Ukraine far beyond the Donbas.

Putin said the Russian soldiers in the Donbas were also fighting to defend Russia’s own ‘rights to secure development’.

‘The West has fundamentally refused to fulfil its earlier obligations, it turned out to be simply impossible to reach any new agreements with it,’ Putin said.

‘In the current situation, against a backdrop of increasing risks for us and threats, Russia’s decision to conduct a special military operation was forced – difficult, of course, but forced and necessary.’

The Kremlin had earlier been forced to postpone the speech following a distributed denial of service (DDOS) attack that began on Thursday, government spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said in a call with reporters.

‘Problems arose with the distribution of badges and confirmation of access to the main plenary session,’ Peskov said. ‘We will fix it, but it will take time.’

As Russian forces moved into Ukraine on February 24, Kyiv called on hacktivists to help. There was no immediate reponse from Ukraine to the cyberattack. 

Putin has been seeking to ramp up ties with Asia and Africa after he sent troops to pro-Western Ukraine in February and the West pummelled the country with devastating economic sanctions.

The annual forum (SPIEF), often dubbed the Russian Davos, has been the country’s main showcase for investors, attracting global leaders and business elites.

This year delegations from more than 40 countries are expected to be in attendance, including those from China, Turkey, Egypt and a number of countries in Asia and Africa. But there was a notable lack of the Western investors and investment bankers who turned up in previous years.

‘Officials from unfriendly countries will not be coming,’ Putin’s top foreign policy advisor, Yuri Ushakov, said ahead of the forum in the Russian president’s hometown, using a term to describe states that have imposed sanctions on Moscow.

Chinese President Xi Jinping, a close Moscow ally, is expected to take part in the forum via video link.

Putin is also expected to meet with the leaders of two breakaway regions in eastern Ukraine that Moscow recognised as independent before sending troops into its pro-Western neighbour.

Food security is expected to be a major topic on the agenda after Moscow’s military campaign and sanctions disrupted deliveries of wheat and other commodities from Russia and Ukraine.  Putin calls on ‘patriotic’ oligarchs to invest money in Russia

Representatives of Afghanistan’s Taliban arrived at the forum on Wednesday and are expected to discuss wheat supplies with Russia.

‘The situation is not easy, rather it can be described as difficult given the unprecedented economic war,’ Peskov said Tuesday.

‘But there is no evil without good. This situation pushes us and friendly countries to search for new way of cooperation,’ he added. 

Western sanctions against Russia over its actions in Ukraine combined with related supply chain issues have starkly altered Russia’s export-import dynamics, with the country now looking to the likes of China and India and turning away from the West.

Key banks have lost access to the global payments system SWIFT, Western brands are shunning the country and selling up in a hurry, writing off billions of dollars in assets – and the European Union has promised an embargo on Russian oil.

Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko lamented Russia’s backwardness in technology, and said the ‘painful process’ of Russia switching to its own technology was under way.

‘You are competing with global companies that have overtaken you by whole generations,’ he told an audience of Russian business representatives.

Organizers of the gathering have been telling foreign participants to be sure to bring cash – not necessarily for making investments, but for spending money. 

The advice is a quiet acknowledgment of the economic difficulties Russia faces as it tries to promote itself to international businesses.Participants attend the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) in Saint Petersburg, Russia, June 17

With Russia under wide sanctions after sending troops into Ukraine, most foreign bank cards don’t work in the country. 

The attendance list is another sign of Russia’s uncertain economic prospects. As of early June, about 2,700 business representatives from 90 countries were expected to attend – far below the 13,500 participants from 140 countries reported last year.

Organizers did not provide a list of foreign businesses attending, but the program for the more than 100 panel discussions showed few speakers from outside Russia.

Some were from China, and the trade minister of the United Arab Emirates was scheduled. Denis Pushilin, leader of the Ukrainian separatist Donetsk People’s Republic, announced he plans to attend.

The forum aims to portray the country as orderly and full of attractive opportunities for clever and adventurous investors. This year’s program carries the theme to an extent that is overly optimistic for Russia’s straitened circumstances.

It comes less than four months after wide-ranging sanctions were imposed and hundreds of foreign companies pulled out of Russia, and the full effect these sanctions have had on the Russian economy is unclear.

Shuttered storefronts give Moscow’s shopping malls a foreboding atmosphere, but officials claim Russian entrepreneurs can step in to revive the consumer economy – as shown over the weekend when a Russian tycoon opened the first of the restaurants he bought from McDonald’sPictured: The scene was ready for Russian President Vladimir Putin to address a plenary session of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in St.Petersburg, Russia, Friday, June 17, 2022, however it was delayed due to a cyberattack

There was another reminder of how economic ties to the West have been cut Wednesday as Swedish furniture giant Ikea – which suspended its Russia operations in March – said it would now seek to ‘find new ownership’ for its four factories there.

The ruble, after losing half its value in the early days of the Ukraine conflict, has strengthened to levels not seen in several years after Russia imposed strict financial measures like capital controls, a heartening image for Russians but possibly a long-term problem making exports more expensive.

One of the most closely watched sessions at the forum is likely to be Thursday’s panel on Russia’s economic prospects featuring heavyweights including Finance Minister Anton Siluanov and Elvira Nabiullina, head of Russia’s central bank.

Nabiullina so far has given ambiguous assessments, saying recently that ‘the effects of the sanctions are less acute than we feared… but it is premature to say that the full effect of the sanctions has manifested itself.’

One of the forum’s most popular events won’t be held: Putin’s question-and-answer session with executives of major international news organizations. 

Instead, he will meet with the heads of Russian news media and ‘front-line reporters’ from Russia’s military operation in Ukraine, Peskov said prior to the event.

A representative of the Taliban also is expected, although Russia formally designates the Taliban as a terrorist group. Kremlin spokesman Peskov said this didn’t mean Russia would recognize the Taliban as the legitimate government of Afghanistan.

‘There is no talk of recognizing (the Taliban),’ Peskov said Wednesday. ‘However, there are many humanitarian problems that obligate many countries to come into contact with representatives of the Taliban,’ he added.

Is Political Corruption Deeply Interwoven Into Every Facet Of American Government? Isaiah 1:5-7

The verses in Isaiah 1: 5-7 are describing the spiritual/moral condition of America. As well as the resulting punishment that’s coming if they don’t repent which is emphasized in verse seven.

The reference to the heart being faint is God talking about how perverse and corrupted the moral foundation of the nation is and how fearful and cowardly the nation is in regards to doing the right thing as it relates to standing for justice, morality, (as God defines morality, not men and women) and following the right path.

The reference to the head being sick is speaking about the federal government and how morally corrupt it is. The reference to the soles of the feet is speaking about the lowest levels of government and the ghettos and how they are equally as immoral and corrupt.

The reference to putrifying sores, wounds, and bruises not being closed, bound up, or mollified with ointment is in relation to the rancid, detestable, immoral condition of the nation that has not been addressed or corrected.

God referring to them as Sodom and Gomorrah in verse ten is how God views them from a moral and or spiritual perspective. God likens America to modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah as it relates to their debased immoral behavior. That interpretation is further supported by Isaiah 3:9-12. These verses are speaking in a spiritual/moral context.

Isaiah 1:5-7 King James Version

Why should ye be stricken anymore? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.

From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.

Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

Isaiah 3:9-12 King James Version

The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.

10 Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.

11 Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.

12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
