    ** Vanguard Group, One of ‘Big Three’ Index Fund Managers, Quits ESG-Oriented ‘Net Zero’ Group **

    Vanguard indicated its decision rested in a desire to maintain the freedom not to restrict its investment options.

    Vanguard Group Inc. is walking out of the world’s largest climate-finance alliance, marking the coalition’s biggest defection to date as US Republicans step up their threats against firms deemed hostile toward the fossil-fuel industry.

    Vanguard’s decision followed a “considerable period of review,” according to a company statement Wednesday. Withdrawing from the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative, which is a sub-unit of the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero, “will help provide the clarity our investors desire” about everything from the role of index funds, to financial risks in the context of climate change, the firm said.

    The “Big Three” (BlackRock, Vanguard, and State Street) can cast nearly 25% of the votes in any director election at S&P 500 companies. The departure has significant implications for the American economy.

    “Since the beginning of October, 791 people have been hospitalized with the flu, including 202 in the past week.”

    Conclusion: in Israel, the flu is putting more people in hospital than COVID, at present.

    • BIDEN ECONOMY: BlackRock Warns of a Recession Like No Other Impacting the Whole World
      By Joe Hoft
      Published December 9, 2022 at 7:15am

      Blackrock is saying to get ready for a recession like no other.

      We’ve been warned for some time. The world is facing recession, the IMF declared.

      The famous investor who made real money from the 2008 market disaster is warning about a recession in the US as well. Michael Burry saw the 2008 disaster coming and he is saying it again

      Joe Biden told us we aren’t in a recession. He says that it so it must be true, right

      So what really is going on?

      According to one of the largest investment firms in the world, the economic outlook for the US and the world is not good for 2023.

      Blackrock says a global recession is coming.

      A worldwide recession is just around the corner as central banks boost borrowing costs aggressively to tame inflation — and this time, it will ignite more market turbulence than ever before, according to BlackRock.

      The global economy has already exited a four-decade era of stable growth and inflation to enter a period of heightened instability — and the new regime of increased unpredictability is here to stay, according to the world’s biggest asset manager.

      That means policymakers will no longer be able to support markets as much as they did during past recessions, a team of BlackRock strategists led by vice chairman Philipp Hildebrand wrote in a report titled 2023 Global Outlook.

      Recession is foretold as central banks race to try to tame inflation. It’s the opposite of past recessions,” they said. “Central bankers won’t ride to the rescue when growth slows in this new regime, contrary to what investors have come to expect. Equity valuations don’t yet reflect the damage ahead.”

      This is not good news when companies are laying off, inflation is at 40-year-highs and Americans are building up credit card debt while most businesses are behind on their heating bills already.

      The Biden Economy is falling apart.

The coming worldwide recession will wipe the smiles off the faces of enemies who point and laugh at this news.

Koressawa had previously filed charges against O Globo journalist William Bonner for enforcing mRNA “vaccines”. The case will be heard by judge Artur Vidigal de Oliveira

    • DEC 09 2022 – al jazeera – Brazil cannot afford to let Bolsonaro off the hook

      The ongoing episode of post-election violence shows what Brazil needs today is not reconciliation but de-radicalisation.

      […]Since Bolsonaro lost his attempt to secure another term as Brazil’s president in October, thousands of his most fanatical supporters have been occupying major roads across the country, demanding – despite there not being any evidence of fraud – the election be overturned or the military intervene to keep the far-right leader in power.

      […]They blockaded roads with burning tyres, bins and tree trunks. They set trucks, and in one case, an ambulance, on fire. Truck drivers across the country reported being assaulted and robbed.

      The violence perpetrated by Bolsonaro supporters is not limited to roadblocks either. In Rondônia, the president’s supporters allegedly targeted a water pipeline and shot at the building of a newspaper critical of his government. In Santa Catarina, they attacked Federal Highway Police officers with stones. In Brasilia, they shot at a bar known to be frequented by the left.

      […]Some Bolsonaristas have even suggested “marking” the doors of the homes and businesses of PT voters with stars – in reference to the PT logo – in a tactic reminiscent of Nazi Germany.

      […]Of course, none of this is at all surprising or unexpected.

      […]Bolsonaro has been preparing the country for this moment. In the past four years, he repeatedly incited violence against leftists, human rights activists, feminists, LGBTQ communities

      […] He empowered the most dangerous sectors of Brazilian society, from violent groups linked to agribusiness to evangelical fundamentalists and other right-wing extremists.
      reuters – Lula ticket sues Bolsonaro and sons for abuses during Brazil’s election

      Brazil’s President-elect Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva’s election team sued President Jair Bolsonaro, his running mate and two of his sons for abuse of power and attacks on Brazil’s voting system, both during the October election campaign.

      The two lawsuits, filed in the electoral court, seek to ban the four men from running for office in future. Bolsonaro and his vice-presidential candidate, retired army general Walter Braga Neto, narrowly lost the election.

      During campaigning, Bolsonaro repeatedly criticized the country’s electronic voting system, claimingwithout evidence that it was open to fraud.

      One lawsuit accused Bolsonaro, Braga Neto and two of the president’s sons – Sen. Flavio Bolsonaro and Congressman Eduardo Bolsonaro – of interfering with the elections by repeatedly attacking the electoral system and trying to build support for a military coup.

      The second lawsuit accuses Bolsonaro of power abuse by illegally granting financial benefits to citizens during the campaign with the “clear intention of gaining votes and, therefore, influencing the choice of Brazilian voters, so as to harm the smoothness of the election.”

      The president’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Reuters could not reach the president’s sons for comment.

      BRASILIA – DEC 09 2022 –

    • bloomberg – On Eve of Lula’s Certification, Bolsonaro Says Army is Last Barrier to Socialism

      He had been quiet as supporters demand military intervention

      Remarks made three days before electoral court certifies Lula

      Outgoing President Jair Bolsonaro, speaking just days before electoral authorities are due to certify Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva’s election victory, said the armed forces are the last standing barrier to socialism in Brazil.

      The conservative president had been practically silent in public since his defeat to leftist Lula on Oct. 30. His supporters, meanwhile, have been protesting the election’s result by blocking highways across the country and demanding military intervention.

      “The armed forces are united, they owe loyalty to our people,” Bolsonaro told a small number of supporters gathered in front of his official residence on Friday. “The ones who decide what the armed forces are going to do are you.”

      Bolsonaro said he was “fighting the system” as he tried to respond to criticism from his own backers who had grown impatient about his silence. Brazil is going through a “crucial moment,” he said, and it’s up to the people to take control of their destiny. His speech lasted about 15 minutes and was broadcast live by supporters on social media.

      Lula’s election is expected to be certified by Brazil’s electoral court on Monday, a week earlier than initially scheduled. After that, challenges to the vote can no longer be submitted to the electoral court.

      Last month, Bolsonaro’s Liberal Party sought to annul votes that gave Lula a narrow victory in the runoff election, but the case backfired as the court considered the allegations made in “bad faith,” fining the party in 23 million reais ($4.4 million).

      The president-elect, who takes office on Jan. 1, unveiled earlier on Friday his first cabinet members, including a defense minister who was given the task of rebuilding bridges with the military. Right after his appointment, Jose Mucio Monteiro announced new commanders for the armed forces.

      Lula’s Chief of Staff Rui Costa said Bolsonaro’s remarks cause no concern as the Brazilian people have already decided their future.

      “All the recent attempts against democracy in the world have made no progress,” he said.


      reuters – ‘It hurts my soul’: Brazil’s Bolsonaro ends post-election silence

      BRASILIA, Dec 9 (Reuters) – Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro broke his silence on Friday for the first time since his election defeat on Oct. 30 and spoke to supporters calling for a military coup to stop leftist President-elect Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva taking office.

      Bolsonaro said he had kept silent for almost 40 days, adding, “it hurts my soul.”

      “Who decides where I go are you. Who decides which way the armed forces go are you,” Bolsonaro told his supporters at the gates of the presidential residence.

      In his ambiguous comments, Bolsonaro did not endorse their call for a military intervention, but said the armed forces would respect Brazil’s Constitution.

      He has not recognized Lula’s victory in the October elections and his silence encouraged supporters to continue demonstrations outside army bases.

      Lula’s narrow victory over Bolsonaro will be certified by Brazil’s national electoral authority on Monday.

      Bolsonaro told his supporters that the armed forces were Brazil’s bulwark to prevent socialism in the country, adding that “nothing is lost” and their cause would prevail one day.

      “The Armed Forces are united. They owe loyalty to our people and respect to the constitution, and they are responsible for our freedom”, he said.
      “Unlike other people, we are going to win,” he said.

  9. INSURRECTION: Democrats Usurp Control of Pennsylvania House Despite GOP Holding the Majority
    By Cullen Linebarger
    Published December 8, 2022 at 8:50pm

    Democratic cheating to win elections is ubiquitous and a tale old as time. The power grab they pulled off in Pennsylvania, though, marks new terrain.

    Rep. Joanna McClinton held a fraudulent ceremony Wednesday where Delaware County Judge Rick Lowe swore her in as Pennsylvania House Majority Leader. She based her hollow claim to power based on the Democrats “winning” 102 seats in the November midterms, the exact number needed to form a majority in a full chamber of 203 members.

    The problem besides the suspicious election results is Democrats only have 99 incoming members for the January 3rd legislative session. One general election candidate, Rep. Anthony DeLuca, “won” despite dying one month prior to the midterms. Rep. Austin Davis, the Lieutenant Governor-elect, and Rep. Summer Lee, who was elected to Congress, submitted their resignations on Wednesday.

    The Epoch Times acquired a legal opinion Thursday by the non-partisan Pennsylvania Legislative Reference Bureau. The document concluded the Democrats have no basis for a majority claim because they can only seat 101 members. Please note the Bureau issued their conclusion just after the Democrat resignations.

    Climate-Change Lockdowns? Yup, They Are Actually Going There…

    Authored by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog,

    I suppose that we should have known that this was inevitable. After establishing a precedent during the pandemic, now the elite apparently intend to impose lockdowns for other reasons as well. What I have detailed in this article is extremely alarming, and I hope that you will share it with everyone that you can. Climate change lockdowns are here, and if people don’t respond very strongly to this it is likely that we will soon see similar measures implemented all over the western world. The elite have always promised to do “whatever it takes” to fight climate change, and now we are finding out that they weren’t kidding.

    Over in the UK, residents of Oxfordshire will now need a special permit to go from one “zone” of the city to another. But even if you have the permit, you will still only be allowed to go from one zone to another “a maximum of 100 days per year”…

    Oxfordshire County Council yesterday approved plans to lock residents into one of six zones to ‘save the planet’ from global warming. The latest stage in the ’15 minute city’ agenda is to place electronic gates on key roads in and out of the city, confining residents to their own neighbourhoods.

    Under the new scheme if residents want to leave their zone they will need permission from the Council who gets to decide who is worthy of freedom and who isn’t. Under the new scheme residents will be allowed to leave their zone a maximum of 100 days per year, but in order to even gain this every resident will have to register their car details with the council who will then track their movements via smart cameras round the city.

    never thought that we would actually see this sort of a thing get implemented in the western world, but here we are.

    Of course there are a few people that are loudly objecting to this new plan, but one Oxfordshire official is pledging that “the controversial plan would go ahead whether people liked it or not

    The same FBI Director in charge of the Michigan Whitmer kidnap and murder hoax and was then later moved to Washington DC prior to the January 6 protests at the Capitol has quietly announced he is retiring to spend more time with his family.

    In October 2020, less than a month before the 2020 Election, it was announced that the FBI had heroically saved Michigan’s corrupt governor Gretchen Whitmer from a plot to kidnap and kill her. Whitmer graciously blamed President for the incident and thanked the FBI for their heroic work in saving her life.

    TGP suspected it at the time, and it eventually turned out to be true that the entire Whitmer kidnapping fiasco was a setup. The FBI used at least 12 FBI informants in the case versus six people indicted.

  16. Satanic Temple Installs ‘Serpent of Genesis’ Statue Inside the Illinois State Capitol
    By Cassandra Fairbanks
    Published December 9, 2022 at 9:45am

    The Satanic Temple has installed a “Serpent of Genesis” statue inside the Illinois State Capitol.
    Last year, the Satanic Temple installed a “Baby Baphomet” statue in the annual Illinois Capitol Rotunda holiday display.

    Satanic “Minister Adam” claimed that this year’s display, the third year the Temple has placed one, is meant to focus on banned books.

    “So we selected a banned book, Copernicus’ ‘Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres,’ published in 1543 and banned by the Catholic church for over 200 years,” Adam said while speaking in the Capitol, according to a report from Advantage News. “This sits on a plinth with a basket of handknit apples as well as a 12-foot crocheted snake.”

    The satanist said that it is “ok” with him if people are offended by the display.

    “Being offended is something that is more than welcomed for them to be able to do, that is their right, but we have every right to be here and we’re not going to sanitize that message because someone else is offended by that,” Adam said.


    The Capitol also has a Christmas tree donated by the Secretary of State’s office, a menorah, and a nativity scene.

    According to the report, during the nativity scene’s dedication by a Christian group last week, a speaker named Beth Rogers said it’s her belief Jesus comes out on top.

    “And I’m going to say, that little baby in the manger later crushed Satan the serpent’s head and the gates of hell will not prevail,” she said.

    The Satanic Temple does not celebrate Christmas but rather Sol Invictus, which falls on the same day.

    According to their website, the day is a “celebration of being unconquered by superstition and consistent in the pursuit and sharing of knowledge.”

    The Satanic Temple made headlines last year for seeking a court declaration to allow abortions for their Texas members, claiming that the laws violate their “religious freedom” to perform “abortion rituals.”

  17. MUST READ – Our Most Important Report of the Midterm: Election Fraud, It’s Voter Roll Manipulation – Not Ballot Gathering!
    By Joe Hoft
    Published December 9, 2022 at 10:15am

    If you do not embrace, with both arms, that Leftists and RINOs use a multi-faceted, 40 years-in-the-making, industrial-scale voter fraud system, centering on voter roll tampering and manipulation, aided by elected officials, NGOs, protected by the mainstream press and conservative controlled opposition, you cannot be part of its remediation

    This week, we have a glaring example of the Republican money-gathering class demonstrating how clueless it is about this reality.

    Our friend Ned Ryun, from a conservative organization, said Republicans need to adopt an absentee ballot-chasing strategy. In Breitbart, of course. This nonsense is the popular position promoted by most of the establishment Republican media, the GOP establishment, and even several Trump supporters: – Sean Hannity, Harmeet Dhillon, Matt Margolies, and Victoria Marshall (Federalist) to name a few.

    They just don’t get it!

    Democrats with RINO Republicans and NGOs control access to voter rolls.

    There is one overarching rule they share: no America-First candidates.

    They know who voted.

    They identify infrequent voters; when that person fails to vote, they offer their concierge service – they vote for them


    We just finished the Fractal analysis for a state, where an America-First candidate, with a 10-point lead, lost a statewide election.

    You be the judge. You tell us, here, if chasing ballots would have changed that outcome.

    ** 42,000 changes to the election rolls within weeks of the election – most were illegal.

    ** 21,000 new voters added to the election rolls, within 29 days of the election – almost every one is illegal.

    ** 8,000 voters appear to live in a business – each one would be illegal.

    ** 1,951 people received ballots at one address, and then voted from a different address – every one is illegal.

    ** The Republican candidate – with an 11-point lead in the polls – lost by around 21,000 votes to a woman who was afraid to debate her!

    People, this data was from a single county! Think what the state analysis would yield

      FBI Reportedly Investigating at Least Five Electricity Substation Attacks in Washington and Oregon Similar in North Carolina
      By Jim Hoft
      Published December 9, 2022 at 12:30pm

      In light of recent assaults on power substations in the South and on the West Coast, authorities are looking into an increasing number of reported threats to power infrastructure.

      The Gateway Pundit previously reported that a massive power outage in North Carolina was caused by two substations being damaged by gunfire last week, according to the Moore County Sheriff’s Office

      Over 40,000 people were left without power because of the criminal actions.

      Mike Cameron of the Southern Pines Fire and Rescue Department told CNN that a gate at one of the locations was taken off the hinges.

      his photos shows the gate to the Duke Energy West End substation in Moore County, N.C. on Sunday, Dec. 4, 2022. Tens of thousands were without power in the county after what authorities say was an act of criminal vandalism at multiple substations.

      Duke Energy spokesman Jeff Brooks told WRAL that crews are experiencing “multiple equipment failures” at substations in Moore County.

      “We are actively investigating signs of potential vandalism related to the outages,” Brooks said.

      According to recent reports, the FBI is investigating similar attacks in Washington and Oregon in November.

      The Seattle Times reported that Puget Sound Energy, the Cowlitz County Public Utility District, and Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) have all said they are cooperating with a federal investigation into the attacks. However, the FBI has declined to confirm that it is conducting such an investigation.

      An internal federal law enforcement memo warning of the recent attacks has been obtained exclusively by NewsNation.

      Power companies in Oregon and Washington have reported physical attacks on substations using hand tools, arson, firearms and metal chains possibly in response to an online call for attacks on critical infrastructure… In recent attacks, criminal actors bypassed security by cutting the fence links, lighting nearby fires, shooting equipment from a distance or throwing objects over the fence and onto equipment,” according to the memo.

      CNN reported:

      Beyond this month’s incidents in South Carolina and North Carolina, where lights flickered back on Wednesday:

      Power companies in Oregon and Washington have reported physical attacks on substations using hand tools, arson, firearms and metal chains possibly in response to an online call for attacks on critical infrastructure… In recent attacks, criminal actors bypassed security by cutting the fence links, lighting nearby fires, shooting equipment from a distance or throwing objects over the fence and onto equipment,” according to the memo.

      CNN reported:

      Beyond this month’s incidents in South Carolina and North Carolina, where lights flickered back on Wednesday:

      • In Oregon, a substation in Clackamas was damaged in a “deliberate physical attack” over the Thanksgiving holiday, a Bonneville Power Administration spokesperson told CNN. “BPA operators discovered a cut perimeter fence and damaged equipment inside,” the spokesperson said, adding the company is working with the FBI on the incident

      • In Washington state, “two incidents occur(ed) in late November at two different substations,” Puget Sound Energy spokesperson told CNN. “Both incidents are currently under investigation by the FBI,” it said, adding, “We are aware of recent threats on power systems across the country and take these very seriously.”

      And two Cowlitz County Public Utility District substations were vandalized in mid-November in the Woodland area, agency spokesperson Alice Dietz told The Seattle Times. “At this time, we do not have any further comment … Our facilities have since been repaired,” Dietz told the Times.

  21. More Evidence that Twitter Was Run by the Deep State – Former CIA and FBI Employee Identified at the Top of the Censorship Activities

    Another Deep State individual was outed in the recent Twitter revelations unveiled by Elon Musk. Jeff Carlton has a resume showing he worked at both the FBI and CIA and then moved on to Twitter. This is what we all expected – that Twitter was being led by the Deep State.

    We’ve already reported on James Comey’s former Chief Counsel at the FBI and how he wormed his way into Twitter. After Baker showed his true allegiance to the Deep State over the weekend, Musk let him go on Tuesday.

    We now know that Baker wasn’t the only Deep State character who wormed his way into Twitter. Another individual whose name popped up yesterday is a man by the name of Jeff Carlton

    Carlton’s name doesn’t come up much but it was tied to data released in yesterday’s data drop released by Twitter. Bari Weiss shared that one group at Twitter decided whether to limit the reach of certain users. This was the Strategic Response Team

    • zero hedge – Americans Dumbed Down On Russia

      Five years ago today, Congress learned from sworn, horse’s-mouth testimony that there is no technical evidence that Russia (or anyone else) hacked the DNC emails showing how the DNC had stacked the deck against Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton’s rival for the Democratic nomination.

      I can almost hear readers new to this website cry out in disbelief: “That cannot be. Official Washington and the media assured us that the Russians hacked those emails in order to help Trump win.

      And didn’t Obama throw out 35 Russian diplomats in reaction? And what about those 12 Russian intelligence agents indicted for hacking?” Were U.S. officials and media mistaken?

      No, not mistaken. They were lying.

      “But … but, does this mean Special Counsel Robert Mueller knew there was no concrete evidence of Russian hacking just six months into his 22-month investigation into Trump-Russia collusion?”

      […]What Americans “know” is that President Vladimir Putin is evil and that Russia must be stopped in Ukraine. This comes of six straight years of indoctrination/brainwashing. Putin and his colleagues, of course, are aware of this.

      It must seem to them that people in the US an Europe are being steeled with the propaganda basis for wider war. This gets extremely dangerous. What people don’t know can really hurt them and lead them into another misbegotten war – this one far worse than other recent misadventures.

      If the sophomores advising President Joe Biden refuse to acknowledge that Russia has escalation dominance in Ukraine, the likelihood of wider war in the coming months looms large. And despite recent optimistic projections by top intelligence officials, Ukraine and NATO are far more likely to run out of ammunition before Russia does.

    NBC News scrubbed its bombshell report that Russia offered the US Brittney Griner OR former Marine Paul Whelan in exchange for the “Merchant of Death.”

    Joe Biden on Thursday announced he traded the world’s most wanted fugitive, Russian Viktor Bout, AKA, the “Merchant of Death” for pot-smoking anti-American baller Brittney Griner.


  24. Obama-Appointed Judge Declines to Hold Trump in Contempt Over Classified Documents

    A federal judge declined to hold Trump in contempt over classified documents seized from Mar-a-Lago.

    Joe Biden’s corrupt Justice Department asked a federal judge to hold President Trump’s team in contempt for ‘failing to comply with a subpoena’ related to the Mar-a-Lago documents

    The Justice Department in May issued Trump a subpoena to return so-called classified records stored at Mar-a-Lago.

    The DOJ asked US District Judge Beryl Howell, an Obama appointee, to hold Trump’s office in contempt for failing to return all documents.

    Judge Howell refused to hold Trump in contempt and told the lawyers to hash out their dispute themselves.

    ABC News reported:
    A federal judge in Washington declined to hold former President Donald Trump or his legal team in contempt of court following a court hearing Friday as the Justice Department had requested, sources familiar with the matter told ABC News.

    The judge instead urged the Justice Department and Trump’s legal team to resolve the dispute themselves, the sources said.

    The DOJ had urged the judge to hold Trump’s team in contempt over failure to fully comply with a May subpoena for documents with classified markings that was directed to Trump’s custodian of records — a person the Trump legal team has not identified
    The proceedings were under seal and not public.

    “The President and his counsel will continue to be transparent and cooperative, even in the face of the highly weaponized and corrupt witch-hunt from the Department of ‘Justice,’” Trump spokesperson Steven Cheung said in a statement.

    If the Department of ‘Justice’ can go after President Trump, they will surely come after any American who they disagree with,” Cheung added. “President Trump is the only one who stands in the way of the un-American weaponization of law enforcement.”

    Trump’s lawyers were forced to search at least two of Trump’s properties for classified materials after the Mar-a-Lago raid.

    The lawyers were instructed by an Obama-appointed federal judge to search Trump’s New Jersey Bedminster golf club and Trump Tower New York to “attest they had fully complied with a May grand jury subpoena” according to a leak to the Washington Post.

    U.S. District Judge Beryl A. Howell told Trump’s legal team to continue their search for classified documents after the Justice Department claimed Trump’s previous searches were incomplete.

    No new materials were found at either property.

    “The group first conducted a search of Bedminster, and Trump’s attorneys have now attested to the Justice Department that no further materials were found, two people familiar with the matter said.” the Washington Post reported.

    We’ve never seen the DOJ so broken and corrupt. This comes from the Obama years. The good news is that Elon Musk is doing what appears to be his best to clean up broken-down Twitter. President Trump opined on both today.

    We reported earlier today on how Biden’s totally corrupt DOJ created a conflicted special persecutor who has connections to George Soros who’s asking for information from George Soros backed Secretaries of State in Arizona and Michigan.

    This is the epitome of corruption. President Trump opined on the corrupt DOJ as well.

    The Western world woke up Thursday morning and learned that the WNBA’s Brittney Griner was returning home from a Russian prison after President Joe Biden had secured her release. For a few seconds, it seemed like good news.

    And then it was quickly revealed that Biden, in his infinite wisdom, traded Griner for a dangerous Russian arms dealer, Viktor Bout. His nickname, the “Merchant of Death,” says everything one needs to know to realize this is the shaping up to be one of the worst prisoner trades in the history of prisoner trades.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has signaled that more prisoner swaps with Washington might be on the horizon, at a moment the profiles of detained Americans Paul Whelan and Marc Fogel are rising in the wake of Brittney Griner’s Thursday release. There’s greater pressure on the Biden administration to obtain ex-Marine Whelan’s release especially.

    Putin in Friday comments before the press said that “everything is possible” in terms of possible future prisoner exchanges. He recounted that “compromises have been found” that led to the Griner for Bout deal.

    “We aren’t refusing to continue this work in the future,” Putin said. “We didn’t set the task to move from those talks to something else, but they do create a certain atmosphere.”
