  1. The Ukraine Mess We keep seeing the Ukraine mentioned over and over these days in connection with political and financial scandal. One of the most recent cases is Hunter Biden getting oodles of cash from a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma, as Joe Biden, while VP, shut down an investigation of Burisma, seeing that his son was on the Board and all. At stake was a cool billion from the US for the Ukraine. Here is Joe Biden bragging about it. Since Biden is currently running for the Democratic Party nomination for the presidency, any time you bring this up, you get swamped with trolls and people yelling and dissembling on all sides. President Trump is throwing gasoline on this fire, too, in his tweets and rallies. In fact, I believe the Justice Department's different investigations now underway are going to result in Biden convictions, but let's see what happens. Because of the panic this caused the bad guys, a phone call between President Trump and the new Ukrainian president, Voldymyr Zelenskiy, was the pretext for a fake whistleblower charge that is currently being used as the basis for a Democratic Party House impeachment inquiry against Trump that is not really an impeachment inquiry. But before we get too entangled, who knows anything about the Ukraine and why it is in such a mess? I certainly don't, and I've been trying to study this for a while. Finally, I ran across Amazing Polly once again. Below is her most recent video. Who knew that Canada and Soros were up to their necks in this mess going all the way back to the old days when the Soviet Union collapsed? As Polly says in the video, she is giving a partial picture, but at least in what she gives, she lays it all out--simply and well documented--in a manner anyone can understand. As this thread grows, I hope the Ukraine mess becomes clearer for everyone. In my own contributions, I will try to find things like Amazing Polly's video, or explain what I have discovered, with an equal level of simplicity and clarity. btw - To keep this issue tied to Ayn Rand, at least tangentially, I noticed a while back Official Objectivismdom was making inroads over there. I remember thinking at the time, Ukraine? Huh? Why just the Ukraine from that part of the world? Now my suspicious mind is getting on a roll all by itself. I wonder if all that backroom money being slung around all over the place had anything to do with it... Michael
