Russian company investing in Kentucky mill is a ‘proxy for the Kremlin’: Senate Intelligence report

Rusal, a Russian aluminum company, has invested heavily in a mill that the North American company Braidy Industries has planned for Eastern Kentucky — and according to a Senate Intelligence report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, Rusal is a “proxy for the Kremlin.”

In 2019, journalist Morgan Watkins reports in the Louisville Courier Journal, Rusal agreed to invest $200 million in Braidy’s mill. And the bipartisan Senate Intelligence report, released on August 18, describes Russian oligarch and Rusal co-owner Oleg Deripaska’s ties to the Kremlin.

According to the report, “Deripaska’s companies, including Rusal, are proxies for the Kremlin, including for Russian government influence efforts, economic measures and diplomatic relations.”

Watkins notes that according to a Securities and Exchange Commission report that Braidy filed in June, Rusal had provided $75 million for the mill as of December 31, 2019 but had discontinued contributions until Braidy could secure another $300 million in funding.

The U.S. government has imposed sanctions on Rusal, but Kentucky’s two Republican senators — Sen. Rand Paul and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — have voted against keeping the sanctions in place. Watkins notes that on August 19, the Kentucky Democratic Party “questioned McConnell’s decision to support lifting the sanctions on Rusal in light of the Senate Intelligence Committee report’s identification of Rusal as a proxy for the Kremlin.”
The difference between patriotism and nationalism is that the patriot is proud of his country for what it does, and the nationalist is proud of his country no matter what it does; the first attitude creates a feeling of responsibility, but the second a feeling of blind arrogance that leads to war.

All of the violence begins with right wing radicals!

Right-wing militias are gearing up for an armed response on Election Day: report

According to a report from Politico, scattered right-wing militia members are looking at Election Day as a moment when they will hit the streets fully-armed in anticipation of protests over the election results.

The report notes that chatter among the groups has been building for some time and that it “has taken a darker turn in recent weeks.”

The report goes on top note that the groups have been emboldened by the president’s recent inflammatory rhetoric with Nguyen writing, “Many of these militant groups — which often espouse anti-government, white supremacist and pro-Trump ideologies — are disconnected and diffuse, without large bases of devoted members. But researchers and government officials say they still represent an acute threat. A recent report from the Center for Strategic and International Studies found far-right extremists were behind two-thirds of reported terrorist plots and attacks in the U.S. this year. And a recent Department of Homeland Security threat assessment warned white supremacist extremists are the ‘most persistent and lethal threat in the homeland.'”

According to Graham Brookie, director of The Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab, “The dangerous thing about Election Day is that groups can plan for it. There will be a moment of opportunity and there will be a moment of information about who potentially wins the election or what the conversation is about the results of the election. And they’ll be looking for signals and dog whistles.”

Media Matters’ Angelo Carusone added, “Hyping warnings about potential left-wing violence is significant because that’s what we’re seeing militia groups planning around. We are seeing a similar theme in militia/extremist activity — that they’re hyperfocused on potential for left-wing groups to become violent on or after the election.”

Despite the claims, mail-in election fraud is virtually non existent, according to a right-wing organization.

ENRAGED TRUMP ACCUSES GEORGIA’S REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR OF STEALING THE STATE FOR BIDEN

Desperate to blame anyone but himself for his humiliating loss in the 2020 presidential election, Donald Trump is now lobbing accusations of wrongdoing at a Republican governor in a Deep South state he lost to Joe Biden.

On Saturday morning, Trump claimed that Georgia GOP Gov. Brian Kemp and his 2018 Democratic opponent, Stacey Abrams, had committed a crime:

"The Consent Decree signed by the Georgia Secretary of State, with the approval of Governor @BrianKempGA, at the urging of @staceyabrams, makes it impossible to check & match signatures on ballots and envelopes, etc. They knew they were going to cheat. Must expose real signatures!"

"....What are they trying to hide. They know, and so does everyone else. EXPOSE THE CRIME!"

Be sure and note that Twitter flagged both of the president’s tweets, and for good reason: There’s not a shred of proof that any wrongdoing took place in the election. Even Trump’s own Department of Homeland Security has declared the 2020 election “the most secure in American history.”

The difference between patriotism and nationalism is that the patriot is proud of his country for what it does, and the nationalist is proud of his country no matter what it does; the first attitude creates a feeling of responsibility, but the second a feeling of blind arrogance that leads to war.

Don't forget, they are both history!
