Mike Pompeo called Trump’s Ukraine claims nonsense — and thought Rudy Giuliani was corrupt: Bolton

Published

on

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo doesn’t believe President Donald Trump’s claims about Ukraine, but he certainly wouldn’t say that publicly.

The New York Times obtained information from former national security adviser John Bolton’s upcoming book, which cited Pompeo “privately” acknowledging “that there was no basis” for the conspiracy theories about the Biden family that Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani is still peddling.

Pompeo also expressed that be thought Giuliani “may have been acting on behalf of other clients,” and was “corrupt.”

The Times reported in Nov. 2019, that at the same time Giuliani was trying to drum up conspiracy theories about the Bidens, he was trying to score lucrative contracts with a Ukrainian oil and gas company.

Trump claimed that Giuliani had been acting on his own to find the so-called “dirt” he sought on the Biden family. However, Giuliani’s associate, Lev Parnas, has outed the president and his team for working closely with Giuliani on the plot to create a conspiracy about the Biden family.

Republicans have refused to vote to support witnesses like John Bolton as part of the impeachment trial.

Trying to ‘shame’ some into voting her way? She never criticized Justice Ginsberg when she called me a ‘faker’. Both should recuse themselves on all Trump, or Trump related, matters!”

If Bloomberg is so rich, why does he steal workers’ wages?

Published

on

Michael Bloomberg has been pummeled over the treatment of women at his media and data company. Yet that is not the only blemish on the employment record of Bloomberg L.P. The company also has a serious problem with wage theft.

Violation Tracker lists a total of $70 million in penalties paid by Bloomberg for wage and hour violations, putting it in 32nd place among large corporations. Yet many of the companies higher on the list – such as Walmart, FedEx, and United Parcel Service – employ far more people than the roughly 20,000 at Bloomberg.

Tennessee Christians are replacing health insurance with ‘sharing ministries’ that require people to live Godly lives: report

Published

christian evangelicals raising hands in praise prayer

On Tuesday, Brett Kelman of The Tennessean wrote about a spike in the uninsured rate in Tennessee — driven in part by 31,000 Christians in the state foregoing health insurance in favor of church-backed "sharing ministries."

These ministries are pitched as alternatives to medical coverage, but they are not health insurance at all — rather, they are better described as religious crowdfunding ventures where fellow congregants may cover your medical bills. But the key word is may. According to Kelman, "these groups don't actually guarantee any payment, and if you break their rules by smoking pot or having unmarried sex, you are on your own."
