Newsweek compiles a list of all Russian oligarchs who have been found dead since Russia invaded Ukraine. This week, two oligarchs and their entire families found dead Spain within a 24-hour period.

Doesn't seem suspicious to me, typical Russian suicides. Two bullets to the back of the head before throwing themselves from windows.

Kinda like our "strange fruit" suicides.

Seems like an indication of how badly Putin fears loss of control.

Oh, and also a preview of what we'll get if the Trump-Putin fascists rule here. Except there won't be any downward limit on who gets executed. Say that magic word "groomer", or perhaps "Disney", and even the toddlers will be killed.

The world needs Ukraine to win this war. And it needs Putin dead. Mort.

It needs another one dead, too.

As to the headline, "Every Russian Oligarch Who Has Died Since Putin Invaded Ukraine."

They failed him.

It's the same excuse Trump uses when things start going badly.

Or the Mafia . . . there's no difference.

That old line of bull?

It got debunked in 2000.

The ol' putin 101 - accuse your opponent of your own crimes.

Putin kills his opponents, so say clinton kills her opponents.

#7 - This tired old BS again? I thought it was hilarious when Epstein died in prison that the QAnon crowd immediately pointed to the Clintons who had exactly ZERO power. It was Dotard who had the power. Combover Quisling who has expressed a desire for very young women, is caught in photos feeling up his barely pubescent daughter, crowed on the radio about walking in on Miss Teen USA contestants while they were changing, has been credibly accused of sexual assault by over 20 women, was admittedly good friend with Epstein, flew on the Lolita Express, and was accused by one of Epstein's girls of forcible rape before the MAGAts figured who she was and threatened her into silence. Epstein was a guest of Combover Quisling's Bureau of Prisons under DOJ authority. Initially, since Epstein was charged in NY, he was supposed to be housed in a NY State corrections facility, but Bill Barr nixed that and held him in federal custody. I knew when that happened, Epstein was a toast. Do I know that Epstein was murdered? No, but if he was, it's 100% more likely that Dotard's people did it than anyone connected to the Clintons. Dotard had the motive, means, and opportunity.

You're right. It's the ol' Mafia motto: "Dead men don't tell tales."

Putin calls opponents "scum and traitors" as Moscow announces new crackdown on "false information"

Putin and his henchmen are on a rampage to eliminate the "scum and traitors". This won't stop until the people of Russia revolt; not by peacefully marching in the street but by surreptitiously taking more vastly aggressive action.

The US and European countries need to declare Russia a terrorist state and let every country that continues to do business with them know that they risk any good relations they might have with the West.

Biden needs to declare a national emergency: Open every damn oil spigot we have in the US and flood the world market with US oil. Countries dependent of Russian oil need to have an alternate supplier. Let that supplier be the US and other countries that feel as we do.

Build out the nationwide EV charging station network ASAP and incentive car manufacturers to build more electric vehicles faster and consumers to buy more EVs.

Build more wind and solar farms. Pull out all of the stops. The less oil we use here the more that is available on the world market. Furthermore, any EV or renewable power generation technological advances we make here should be made available to our allies around the world at little or not cost so that they can also wean themselves from oil.

Environmentalists will be pissed of course, but such is the hand that Putin and other oil rich despots have dealt us. Production of oil, for the most part, is in the hands of people that hate the US. For many (most?) of them, oil is their only product. Deprive them of its use and reduce the strangle hold that they have on the world. Let them drown in their oil reserves.

Facetious I know but

I'm sure they have a Seal Team 6 or two.

You'll never stop giving the benefit of the doubt to the guy who had to shut down the internet and take over all the tv stations will you?

Ukraine has an FBI-CIA equivalent. They will disappear you.

Lots of moving parts, plenty of pieces in motion, whirring gears, many sharp objects. How any of these folks sleep at night, I do not know. Which is probably just as well.
