    Yuriy Lutsenko, the Ukrainian prosecutor who closed an investigation into Burisma -the Ukrainian gas company President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden worked for - said a lobbying company linked to Hunter Biden and Burisma had “pitched” him the offer of providing access to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, newly released emails revealed on Friday. In an email released via FOIA request to Citizens United and shared with American Military News, former Obama State Department official George Kent described a meeting with Lutsenko in September 2016 to discuss his contacts with Blue Star Strategies - the lobbying firm that helped represent...

    Hunter Biden enlisted former members of the Clinton administration in his effort to checkmate a corruption investigation into a Ukrainian energy company that gave Hunter Biden a well-paid seat on its board, according to a new report. The end of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin’s investigation of Burisma Energy is well known. Then-Vice President Joe Biden said he told Ukrainian officials to boot Shokin or risk a loss of U.S. aid. Shokin was dismissed. However, before that came to pass, Hunter Biden was working his U.S. contacts to head off the probe, according to the Daily Mail, which cited as...

    The Ukrainian gas firm that hired Hunter Biden lobbied the Department of State in early 2016, just one month before then-U.S. Vice President Joe Biden forced the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating the same company, according to documents obtained as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. On Feb. 24, 2016, a State Department official sent an email discussing an overture from a representative for Burisma, the Ukrainian gas firm, to Undersecretary of State Catherine Novelli. The Burisma representative argued that the allegations against the company were baseless, according to an email chain released as part...

    During President Trump's impeachment, former U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch testified before Congress [under oath] that she knew little beyond an initial briefing and "press reports" about Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian natural gas firm that had hired Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter and was dogged by a corruption investigation. "It just wasn't a big deal," she testified under oath on October 11, 2019. But newly unearthed State Department memos obtained under the Freedom of Information Act [show otherwise].

    A consultant for Burisma Holdings and associate of Hunter Biden reached out to the State Department to meet about "troubling events" in Ukraine. Emails released by the State Department show communications between Sally Painter, a consulting representative for the Ukrainian gas company, and William Russo, the top aide of former Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken in 2016. In one email in June, Painter requested a meeting with Blinker to discuss events in Ukraine. “Per my conversation with Tony at the Truman event, Karen Tramontano and I would like to have a brief coffee with Tony at his earliest convenience...

    During World War II it became the custom for families of servicemen to display stars in their windows, honoring the mothers, especially, as Blue Star Mothers — or Gold Star Mothers if their sons were killed in battle. If the custom had continued in the next decade, a Haviland family would have had a small constellation in their window. Thankfully, the stars would have all been blue. If Gertrude Konkel worried for the safety of her five sons in uniform, she did so quietly. Wayne Konkel, Pratt, the youngest of the five, said his mother didn’t listen to the news...

    SAUK CENTRE, MINN. - It's time for the roll call of military mothers in this central Minnesota meeting room: Becky Eibensteiner, her daughter back from Iraq. Sue Winges, her son headed to Iraq. Iris Krebsbach, one son home from Bosnia but another sent to Iraq. All counted, 24 mothers. Some weep. The room falls silent.

    I’d like to suggest that Freepers support the families of the troops. The troops left wives, mothers, and children to fight for us. They should not have to worry that these family members are not being cared for. It can be simple things like cutting grass, running errands, checking with them to see that they are Ok, etc. It can also be offering emotional support, someone to talk to about their fears, needs etc. If we can make this a national program with thousands of Freepers taking part it will mean a lot to our troops. Every act of kindness...
