Looking for a solid source on report of Chechnya troops going to Ukraine

to support Russia.

Dems have a sure win in the new drawn NC-14.

This district was drawn competitive with a slight R. Jeff Jackson is running.

Hey folks, I'm running for North Carolina’s new 14th congressional district.
You deserve leadership that is honest, decent, and hardworking. No corporate PAC money, no stock trading, just a serious approach to our challenges.

This is Day One. Your support now means a lot: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/jnj-social

This district is less than a week old. It came to be when our new congressional map reached its final form after an extensive back-and-forth between the courts and the state legislature.

Our family wasn't planning on running for Congress this year - not one bit. But seeing this new district, I told you yesterday that our family would talk about getting into this race during dinner. We did, and they’re all in.

I also invited everyone to reply to our last email with your thoughts about whether we should run. As of this morning, 1,265 of you did - and your encouragement has been overwhelming.
This all happened suddenly - but we’re ready. We have the support, the infrastructure, and the experience to hit the ground running.

I want to finish what we started last year by making this a campaign you can be proud of.
We’re going to talk about a lot of issues - affordable housing, early childhood education, transportation, climate, gerrymandering, and much more - but I want the core of this campaign to be something you can respect because you see an effort that fundamentally respects you.
If that’s what you want in a member of Congress, then please make a day one contribution.
We’re going to need to build this campaign fast, and our speed is going to come down to the level of your support.

The 14th district includes Mecklenburg - where I serve as state Senator - and Gaston - where I worked as an assistant D.A.

It would be an absolute honor to serve its citizens in the U.S. House of Representatives.

All the Best,
Jeff Jackson

Ukraine-born journalist Larisa Alexandrovna (DU,HuffPost): Ides of March

Larisa Alexandrovna Horton

The Ides of March.

Take all oligarch money, property, evict all of their spoiled brats from EU and American schools. Suspend all travel visas. Don’t buy or sell anything to or from them. Deny them medical treatment everywhere outside of Russia. Don’t let them land their planes or park their yachts. Issue international arrest warrants for all of them. Make it impossible for them to breath as free men. Then they will take care of Putin.

The oligarchs are the only ones who can stop Putin now. And he must be stopped. We know what he is. We have seen his kind before and we did not act early enough. He’s got nukes. And I am no longer confident that we are dealing with a sane creature.

Ides of March. No war. Just a clean fix.

Tell me I am wrong?
