Everyone knows what happened to con artist Sam Bankman-Fried, and what happened at FTX by now.

Customers lost millions of dollars due to his fraud. However, he’s now being praised because he’s good with the establishment. It’s insanity.

The Blaze reports, “Bankman-Fried, who has recently said he was masquerading as a woke westerner, has benefited from an avalanche of favorable press as of late, including an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal and a public webcam event with the New York Times.”

The European Commission intends to propose restrictions in the mining industry as part of the ninth package of sanctions against Russia.

Sanctions to stay, if Russia 'dictates' terms of peace in Ukraine Scholz MikeRivero Wed, 12/07/2022 - 08:33

 Western sanctions against Russia will not be lifted, if Russia "dictates" its terms of a peace settlement in Ukraine, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said in an article for Foreign Affairs magazine, published on Monday.

"It was clear from the outset of the war that these sanctions would have to be in place for a long time, as their effectiveness increases with each passing week," Scholz writes. He states that Moscow "needs to understand that not a single sanction will be lifted should Russia try to dictate the terms of a peace deal."

Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev took to his Telegram channel to excoriate the West’s price cap on Russian oil.

"It is merely astonishing how mankind likes to step on the same rake again and again, in an attempt to control prices for the sake of politics," the ex-president said. Such attempts have always ended with a commodity vanishing or its price soaring because the law of value remains in effect, he noted.

It’s a “done deal.”

Congressional sources tell The Dossier that there is a strong enough appetite in Congress, given the unanimously pro-war Democratic voting bloc, and the significant amount of Republicans who support the perpetual funding of the Zelensky government in Ukraine, to pass a bill by the end of next week that will deliver tens of billions of dollars into Kiev’s coffers.

A disabled veteran in Canada has revealed that the Trudeau regime pressured her to be euthanized because she didn’t have enough money to afford a wheelchair lift in her home.

Yes, really.
