Russias GRU Agent in Mueller Probe Is Obviously Konstantin Kilimnik

Since its establishment a hundred years ago, at the dawn of Bolshevik rule, the Main Intelligence Directorate of Moscow’s General Staff—GRU for short—has been the shadowiest of the Kremlin’s spy agencies. While the KGB was known worldwide, its military counterpart remained off-limits to outsiders, shrouded in speculation and mystery. We in the West still know very little about GRU’s Cold War secret operations, unlike the KGB’s, much less what its spies hiding behind their black bat logo are up to these days.

Left untouched by the Soviet collapse in 1991 (there wasn’t even a name change), GRU remains a top-secret espionage empire that spans the globe, with human and technical intelligence capabilities stretching far beyond Russia. A purely foreign intelligence agency, GRU dwarfs its civilian rival, the SVR, in size and capabilities. Like the SVR, it employs spies abroad who masquerade as diplomats, as well as operatives working without official cover, what Moscow terms Illegals.

Recent developments demonstrate that GRU played a clandestine role in the election of Donald Trump. Last week, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s team, which is investigating the White House’s Kremlin connections, released a court filing relating to the imminent sentencing of Alex van der Zwaan, a London attorney who has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Trump deputy campaign chair Rick Gates and a shadowy figure termed “Person A.” Per the court filing:

That Gates and Person A were directly communicating in September and October 2016 was pertinent to the investigation. Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agents assisting the Special Counsel’s Office assess that Person A has ties to Russian intelligence service and had such ties in 2016. During his first interview with the Special Counsel’s Office, van der Zwaan admitted that he knew of that connection, stating that Gates told him Person A was a former Russian Intelligence Officer with GRU.

To anyone acquainted with the Trump investigation, Person A is obviously Konstantin Kilimnik, a close friend and protégé of Paul Manafort (Trump’s campaign manager in mid-2016), who has admitted he was once a Russian intelligence officer working for GRU. Our media went into overdrive, hailing this as the “most direct line to date” between President Trump’s inner circle and the Kremlin. One must ask: Where have they been?

While it’s certainly news that Mueller’s prosecutors openly called out a barely-concealed Kilimnik for his GRU ties, this fact has been known for years. It’s been reported more than once, beginning in mid-August 2016—including by me—when Manafort’s ties to the Kremlin became so obvious that he excused himself from the Trump campaign. As I stated at the time:

Although Kilimnik made no effort to hide his Kremlin affiliation, he and Manafort became fast friends. To anybody familiar with Russian intelligence, Kilimnik was very likely Manafort’s spy-handler. At best, he was an access agent for GRU, assessing the American for possible espionage. “There are no former intelligence officers,” as Vladimir Putin has stated, and one can only imagine the glee in Moscow when Manafort was appointed Trump’s campaign manager.

Why the mainstream media considers confirmation of Kilimnik’s GRU affiliation—which the translator-cum-factotum never concealed—to be a bombshell is something of a mystery. This is just one more thread in the Trump investigation that’s been known for years, yet which the MSM largely punted on investigating seriously before the 2016 election, when it might have mattered.

Why a veteran GRU operative was lurking near the heart of the Trump campaign was an important question in the summer of 2016—not the spring of 2018.

Nevertheless, exactly what Kilimnik was doing with and for Manafort is now getting the scrutiny it deserved long ago. In Vladimir Putin’s Russia, connections to the “special services” are something to be boasted about, and Kilimnik did so. Everybody who worked with him was aware of his GRU affiliation, while anyone acquainted with how Putinism works knew the reality that affiliations with the Kremlin’s spy agencies are never entirely in the past.

For years, Kilimnik was employed in Kyiv as a political fixer, frequently in tandem with Manafort, to back friends of the Kremlin. Embarrassingly, the GRU operative collaborated closely with quite a few Americans. Kilimnik worked in Ukraine for the International Republican Institute, a Washington, D.C.-based NGO, though he was let go in 2005 when the extent of his secret Kremlin links became obvious. That was when Manafort hired him to work on his Ukraine projects—as he did for a decade-plus.

There are credible reports that Kilimnik continued to maintain connections with the IRI even after he was cashiered, while more disturbingly, sources in Kyiv tell me that our embassy there relied on Kilimnik, including to help vet personnel, despite his known GRU connections. Kilimnik was a fixture in Ukraine’s capital, touching numerous American interests, official and unofficial. He also seems to have served as the connection between Manafort and Oleg Deripaska, the notorious Russian oligarch and close friend of Putin’s. Any serious inquiry into Kiliminik and his network of friends and partners will likely reveal embarrassing things for Washington beyond Manafort and Trump.

It’s troubling that Manafort met with Kilimnik several times in mid-2016, even when scrutiny about Team Trump’s Russian ties was becoming a problem for the campaign. Worse, there are indications that Kilimnik had a hand in gutting the Republican Party’s platform on Ukraine, which was altered in a direction more amenable to Moscow at the GOP convention in Cleveland in mid-July 2016. That issue merits scrutiny, above all to determine on whose behalf Kilimnik was exactly working there.

Moreover, Kilimnik’s was hardly the only GRU secret operation to touch the Trump campaign in 2016.

According to a recent report in The Daily Beast, Russia’s military intelligence was behind the hack of Democratic emails in 2016—and was in direct contact with Team Trump about it. Guccifer 2.0 was reputedly the “lone hacker” who pillaged the emails of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee in the spring of 2016. These were dumped online by WikiLeaks in July of that year, to devastating political effect.

American counterintelligence had already ascertained that the hackers of the DNC were part of “Fancy Bear”—a shadowy bunch of online criminals that functions as a GRU cut-out in cyber-attacks on numerous Western governments and institutions.

Our counterspies were additionally able to establish that Guccifer 2.0 in reality is a GRU official, thanks to an embarrassing cyber-screw-up in Moscow.

As The Daily Beast explained:

Guccifer failed to activate the VPN client before logging on. As a result, he left a real, Moscow-based Internet Protocol address in the server logs of an American social media company… Working off the IP address, U.S. investigators identified Guccifer 2.0 as a particular GRU officer working out of the agency’s headquarters on Grizodubovoy Street in Moscow.

This is of special interest to Team Mueller since Roger Stone, the veteran Republican dirty-trickster who’s been a close friend and partner of both Manafort and Trump since the 1970s, has admitted he was in contact with Guccifer 2.0. Stone posted Twitter direct messages between himself and the mysterious hacker on his blog. Although Stone denied that he’s been in touch with Russian intelligence, this is now provably untrue. Given that Stone has also been in secret contact with WikiLeaks, he has placed himself at both ends of the Russian-directed spy-cum-criminal conspiracy against the Democrats in 2016. Considering that Trump’s own CIA director called out WikiLeaks as a Kremlin front, specifically “a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia,” it can be safely assumed that Mueller and the FBI have many questions for Stone to answer.

To anyone acquainted with real-world espionage, particularly when it involves Russians, Team Trump’s numerous secret connections to GRU in 2016 and beyond cannot be brushed off as mere coincidence.

Exactly what role the Kremlin’s shadowy black-bat played in putting Donald Trump in the White House remains to be determined. None should doubt that Robert Mueller and his veteran investigators are on the case.

La Junta de Supervisión Fiscal que controla las finanzas de la isla le está exigiendo al Gobierno despidos, recortes de pensiones y cambios a las leyes laborales del país.

Rosselló hizo un acercamiento a la Junta con la reforma laboral y la Junta demostró ser intransigenteUnivision Puerto Rico

El gobernador de Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rosselló, enviará esta semana a la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal (JSF) que controla las finanzas de la isla un nuevo Plan Fiscal que no contempla el despido de empleados públicos, el recorte de pensiones ni una reforma laboral tal como le exigió la entidad la semana pasada.

La JSF es un organismo creado por el Congreso de EEUU en 2016 para controlar las finanzas del gobierno de Puerto Rico tras éste no poder cumplir con los pagos de vencimientos de su deuda pública ascendente a 70,000 millones de dólares.

La Ley PROMESA, que creó la junta, protegió al Gobierno de sus acreedores mediante un proceso similar a la ley de quiebras y le exige a la administración presentar planes fiscales a la JSF que pueden ser aprobados o rechazados por la entidad, que a su vez puede imponer su propio plan por encima de la leyes y decisiones del gobierno local.

En una carta dirigida a la JSF el domingo, Rosselló enfatizó que, aunque la Ley PROMESA le permite a la entidad certificar o no el Plan Fiscal del Gobierno, la junta no puede usurpar los poderes legislativos y operacionales del gobierno local.

Roselló sostiene que eso es lo que pretende hacer la JSF cuando le pide al Gobierno recortar las pensiones, despedir empleados públicos y hacer una reforma laboral bajo sus propios términos.

Con su Plan Fiscal el Gobernador había propuesto una polémica reforma a las leyes laborales de Puerto Rico que eliminaba el pago del bono de Navidad o aguinaldo en el sector privado, anulaba las leyes por despido injustificado y reducía los días de vacaciones y por enfermedad obligatorios de 15 a 7, a cambio de un aumento en el salario mínimo local de 7.25 dólares la hora a 8.25 dólares.

Sin embargo, la semana pasada la JSF aceptó todas esas propuestas, agregó que las pensiones del Gobierno debían ser recortadas en 10 por ciento y rechazó cualquier aumento inmediato en el salario mínimo.

Rosselló contestó que sin aumento del salario mínimo retiraba su propuesta de reforma laboral y criticó que la propuesta JSF no incluyera ni un solo programa de capacitación para la fuerza laboral.

“El Gobierno no permitirá la toma de estos poderes, y por lo tanto no implementaremos muchas de las revisiones sugeridas”, afirmó el jefe del Ejecutivo puertorriqueño en un comunicado que acompañó a la misiva.

“En caso de que la Junta decida certificar un Plan Fiscal que muestre un exceso de sus facultades, sepa que el Gobierno electo por el pueblo ejercerá su discreción al implementar aquellas medidas que considere apropiadas y en el bienestar público”, aseguró.

Recalcó, además, que existe un compromiso de su administración de incrementar la participación laboral, mantener el bono de Navidad, los días de vacaciones y enfermedad pese a que l a JSF “insiste en eliminarlos sin dar paso a una compensación laboral como el aumento al salario mínimo y entrenamiento a la fuerza laboral”.

Rosselló enfatizó en la carta de siete páginas que el Gobierno de Puerto Rico “cree firmemente que las revisiones sugeridas (por la Junta) deprimirían significativamente el crecimiento macroeconómico, que es una piedra angular importante del Plan Fiscal”.

Por ello, adelantó que en el Plan Fiscal revisado, que será enviado a la JSF el jueves próximo, no incluirá una propuesta de reforma laboral y solo agregará el establecimiento de un crédito por ingresos por trabajo (EITC) para trabajadores con ingresos bajos o moderados y el requerimiento de trabajo para poder participar en el Programa de Asistencia Nutricional (PAN).

Rosselló dijo, además, que la JSF “continúa insistiendo” en una reducción promedio del 10 por ciento de los beneficios de pensión en todos los sistemas de jubilación del Gobierno pero que tal medida impone “una carga desproporcionada a los trabajadores y jubilados de Puerto Rico”.

Al mismo tiempo, insistió en que desarrollará la regionalización, los condados y la movilización voluntaria de reos a instituciones en otras jurisdicciones de Estado Unidos, debido a que estas propuestas producirán ahorros significativos en la operación diaria del Gobierno.

Governor Drops Labor Reform as Oversight
Board Pushes Pension Cuts, Labor Austerity

Puerto Rico’s federally appointed fi nancial oversight
board insisted last week on pension cuts and
other austerity measures as conditions for approving
a turnaround plan for the bankrupt island still reeling
after Hurricane Maria.
In a seven-page letter to Governor Ricardo Rosselló
Nevares, the board last Wednesday called for a revised
plan with an average of 10 percent cuts to public employee
pensions, provided that no one is pushed into
poverty by the cuts.
All changes requested by the oversight board must
be submitted on or before Thursday at 5 p.m.
The demand is part of a bankruptcy process under
which Puerto Rico must submit a blueprint for regaining
its fi nancial footing. The plan must be approved by
the oversight board, which may impose its own plan if
both sides cannot agree.
The fi scal reform measures will determine how
much money the U.S. commonwealth has left over to
pay holders of $71.5 billion in bonds, who are expected
to take huge cuts as part of a massive debt restructuring.
Puerto Rico’s benchmark general obligation bond,
maturing in 2035, traded around 42.6 cents on the dollar
on Wednesday 74514LE86=MSRB.
Pension cuts have been a major sticking point as the
board and Rosselló try to reach a consensual plan. Rosselló’s
latest draft, published on March 23, includes labor
reform and other austerity, but no pension cuts.
In a brief televised response on Wednesday afternoon,
the governor said he would nullify the labor reform
proposal he had presented just a week previous.
In a message that lasted about fi ve minutes, Rosselló
said the conditions presented by the federal oversight
board would make the proposed salary increase, which
“is the basis of our reform,” impossible.
“The Board has sent us a communication proposing
measures that would have the eff ect of increasing
the conditions of poverty in Puerto Rico,” the governor
said according to local press reports. “The basis of
our proposal was the [minimum wage] increase for our
workers and the creation of training opportunities; with
these elements rendered impossible, the [labor reform]
proposal is not viable.”
Rosselló added that he can not allow the federal fi scal
agency to exercise powers it does not have.
“The Board intends to dictate the public policy of
the government, and that, as well as being illegal, is unacceptable,”
the governor said.
Puerto Rico’s public employee retirement systems
are $50 billion underfunded and have no assets, with
payments coming out of the island’s general budget. It is
one of only a few times in U.S. history that a large-scale
public pension has gone to a “pay-as-you-go” system.
Last September, Hurricane Maria compounded what
was already the biggest-ever U.S. government insolvency,
decimating infrastructure and sending hundreds of
thousands of Puerto Rico’s 3.4 million residents, who
are American citizens, fl eeing to the U.S. mainland.
“Without change we face a future of poverty and
outmigration as Puerto Rico residents move to the mainland,”
the board’s letter said. “These are the changes we
need to make to honor our pensioners.”
The board also called for paring a recovery fund for
the island’s municipalities, instructing Rosselló to budget
for $78 million for just one year. Small, rural towns
were hit hardest by Maria, with thousands of residents
still without power six months later.
The board demanded more specifi city on Rosselló’s
controversial plan to privatize prisons, saying the current
plan “does not demonstrate a viable path for achieving
its claimed savings.”
It also wants Rosselló to remove hiring incentives
for employers, but the governor said he planned to forge
ahead with the new tax model and incentive code.

The art of brinkmanship: Gobernador vs. The Board 

What are the public and social policies, who can and cannot dictate them, should they be dictated at all and in principle, and what is the best way to formulate and to implement the good, sound, healthy social policies; as the essential part of the good governance as the leading concept in political science? 

This past week Gov. Rosello accused the PR Financial Oversight Board of meddling into public policies and the intentions to dictate them. This evokes the whole array of questions mentioned above. They deserve the competent public discussions. The political and the financial necessities can be combined if the big picture is viewed and taken into account. 

The beggers cannot be choosers, someone might comment smugly. The bondholders demandsshould be met, to maintain the financial credibility. But, it seems to me, this has to be done with the minimum sacrifices for pension plans and workers. These projected hypothetical savings might make the relatively insignificant contribution to the overall economic picture, and these corrective measures might only add to the further demoralization of the workforce. More expert information, estimates, and opinions are needed on this subject. 

However, it is not bad that this conflict came into the open, and was not swept under the rug. Maybe, something good indeed will come out of this public discussion. 

The political brinkmanship is an art and quite often it is used as a tool, and more so in this age of political chutzpah unbound, the age of Trumpismo-Putinismo (cum Cretinismo, quite sometimes). The creation of good and efficient social policies is the higher art, it should be free from these passing complications, and it should also be more of the fundamental and the longer term enterprise.

They intend to dictate public policy: Puerto Ricos governor spars with federal oversight board

  • They intend to dictate public policy, reducing health benefits while striking public employees and the economy of the Island, he said.

Governor of Puerto Rico will deliver new Fiscal Plan without dismissals and pension cuts

The Fiscal Supervision Board that controls the finances of the island is demanding from the Government dismissals, pension cuts and changes to the country’s labor laws.

 

Rosselló approached the Board with the labor reform and the Board proved intransigent Univision Puerto Rico

The governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rosselló, will send this week to the Fiscal Supervision Board (JSF)that controls the finances of the island a new Fiscal Plan that does not include the dismissal of public employees, the pension cuts or a labor reform such as the entity demanded last week.

The JSF is an organization created by the US Congress in 2016 to control the finances of the government of Puerto Rico after it failed to meet the payments of maturity of its public debt amounting to 70,000 million dollars.

The PROMESA Law , which created the board, protected the government from its creditors through a process similar to the bankruptcy law and requires the administration to submit fiscal plans to the JSF that can be approved or rejected by the entity, which in turn You can impose your own plan over the laws and decisions of the local government.

Governor of Puerto Rico withdraws proposed labor reform in new clash with the Fiscal Control Board

In a letter addressed to the JSF on Sunday, Rosselló emphasized that, although the PROMESA Law allows the entity to certify or not the Government’s Fiscal Plan, the board can not usurp the legislative and operational powers of the local government .

Roselló maintains that this is what the JSF intends to do when it asks the government to cut pensions, dismiss public employees and make a labor reform on its own terms.

With its Fiscal Plan, the Governor had proposed a controversial reform to the labor laws of Puerto Rico that eliminated the payment of the Christmas bonus or Christmas bonus in the private sector, annulled the laws for unjustified dismissal and reduced the days of vacations and compulsory sick leave. 15 to 7 , in exchange for an increase in the local minimum wage of 7.25 dollars per hour to 8.25 dollars.

However, last week the JSF accepted all these proposals, adding that government pensions should be cut by 10 percent and rejected any immediate increase in the minimum wage.

Rosselló replied that without an increase in the minimum wage, he withdrew his labor reform proposal and criticized that the JSF proposal did not include a single training program for the labor force.

“The government will not allow the taking of these powers, and therefore we will not implement many of the suggested revisions,” the Puerto Rican chief executive said in a statement accompanying the letter.

“In case the Board decides to certify a Fiscal Plan that shows an excess of its faculties, it knows that the Government elected by the people will exercise its discretion when implementing those measures it deems appropriate and in the public welfare,” he said.

He also stressed that there is a commitment from his administration to increase labor participation, keep the Christmas bonus, vacation days and sickness despite the fact that the JSF “insists on eliminating them without giving way to a labor compensation like the increase in minimum wage and workforce training. ”

 

Was the labor reform good or bad for the Government? Univision Puerto Rico

Rosselló emphasized in the seven-page letter that the Government of Puerto Rico “strongly believes that the suggested revisions (by the Board) would significantly depress macroeconomic growth, which is an important cornerstone of the Fiscal Plan.”

Therefore, he said that in the revised Fiscal Plan, which will be sent to the JSF next Thursday, will not include a labor reform proposal and will only add the establishment of a credit by income for work (EITC) for workers with low or moderate income. and the work requirement to participate in the Nutrition Assistance Program (PAN).

Rossello said, in addition, that the JSF “continues to insist” on an average reduction of 10 percent of pension benefits in all government retirement systems but that such measure imposes “a disproportionate burden on workers and retirees of Puerto Rico.” ”

At the same time, he insisted that he will develop the regionalization, the counties and the voluntary mobilization of inmates to institutions in other jurisdictions of the United States, because these proposals will produce significant savings in the daily operation of the Government.

Gobernador de Puerto Rico entregará nuevo Plan Fiscal sin despidos y ni recortes de pensiones – Univision Puerto Rico

La Junta de Supervisión Fiscal que controla las finanzas de la isla le está exigiendo al Gobierno despidos, recortes de pensiones y cambios a las leyes laborales del país.

Rosselló hizo un acercamiento a la Junta con la reforma laboral y la Junta demostró ser intransigenteUnivision Puerto Rico

El gobernador de Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rosselló, enviará esta semana a la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal (JSF) que controla las finanzas de la isla un nuevo Plan Fiscal que no contempla el despido de empleados públicos, el recorte de pensiones ni una reforma laboral tal como le exigió la entidad la semana pasada.

La JSF es un organismo creado por el Congreso de EEUU en 2016 para controlar las finanzas del gobierno de Puerto Rico tras éste no poder cumplir con los pagos de vencimientos de su deuda pública ascendente a 70,000 millones de dólares.

La Ley PROMESA, que creó la junta, protegió al Gobierno de sus acreedores mediante un proceso similar a la ley de quiebras y le exige a la administración presentar planes fiscales a la JSF que pueden ser aprobados o rechazados por la entidad, que a su vez puede imponer su propio plan por encima de la leyes y decisiones del gobierno local.

En una carta dirigida a la JSF el domingo, Rosselló enfatizó que, aunque la Ley PROMESA le permite a la entidad certificar o no el Plan Fiscal del Gobierno, la junta no puede usurpar los poderes legislativos y operacionales del gobierno local.

Roselló sostiene que eso es lo que pretende hacer la JSF cuando le pide al Gobierno recortar las pensiones, despedir empleados públicos y hacer una reforma laboral bajo sus propios términos.

Con su Plan Fiscal el Gobernador había propuesto una polémica reforma a las leyes laborales de Puerto Rico que eliminaba el pago del bono de Navidad o aguinaldo en el sector privado, anulaba las leyes por despido injustificado y reducía los días de vacaciones y por enfermedad obligatorios de 15 a 7, a cambio de un aumento en el salario mínimo local de 7.25 dólares la hora a 8.25 dólares.

Sin embargo, la semana pasada la JSF aceptó todas esas propuestas, agregó que las pensiones del Gobierno debían ser recortadas en 10 por ciento y rechazó cualquier aumento inmediato en el salario mínimo.

Rosselló contestó que sin aumento del salario mínimo retiraba su propuesta de reforma laboral y criticó que la propuesta JSF no incluyera ni un solo programa de capacitación para la fuerza laboral.

“El Gobierno no permitirá la toma de estos poderes, y por lo tanto no implementaremos muchas de las revisiones sugeridas”, afirmó el jefe del Ejecutivo puertorriqueño en un comunicado que acompañó a la misiva.

“En caso de que la Junta decida certificar un Plan Fiscal que muestre un exceso de sus facultades, sepa que el Gobierno electo por el pueblo ejercerá su discreción al implementar aquellas medidas que considere apropiadas y en el bienestar público”, aseguró.

Recalcó, además, que existe un compromiso de su administración de incrementar la participación laboral, mantener el bono de Navidad, los días de vacaciones y enfermedad pese a que l a JSF “insiste en eliminarlos sin dar paso a una compensación laboral como el aumento al salario mínimo y entrenamiento a la fuerza laboral”.

Rosselló enfatizó en la carta de siete páginas que el Gobierno de Puerto Rico “cree firmemente que las revisiones sugeridas (por la Junta) deprimirían significativamente el crecimiento macroeconómico, que es una piedra angular importante del Plan Fiscal”.

Por ello, adelantó que en el Plan Fiscal revisado, que será enviado a la JSF el jueves próximo, no incluirá una propuesta de reforma laboral y solo agregará el establecimiento de un crédito por ingresos por trabajo (EITC) para trabajadores con ingresos bajos o moderados y el requerimiento de trabajo para poder participar en el Programa de Asistencia Nutricional (PAN).

Rosselló dijo, además, que la JSF “continúa insistiendo” en una reducción promedio del 10 por ciento de los beneficios de pensión en todos los sistemas de jubilación del Gobierno pero que tal medida impone “una carga desproporcionada a los trabajadores y jubilados de Puerto Rico”.

Al mismo tiempo, insistió en que desarrollará la regionalización, los condados y la movilización voluntaria de reos a instituciones en otras jurisdicciones de Estado Unidos, debido a que estas propuestas producirán ahorros significativos en la operación diaria del Gobierno.

The art of brinkmanship: Gobernador vs. The Board 

What are the public and social policies, who can and cannot dictate them, should they be dictated at all and in principle, and what is the best way to formulate and to implement the good, sound, healthy social policies; as the essential part of the good governance as the leading concept in political science? 

This past week Gov. Rosello accused the PR Financial Oversight Board of meddling into public policies and the intentions to dictate them. This evokes the whole array of questions mentioned above. They deserve the competent public discussions. The political and the financial necessities can be combined if the big picture is viewed and taken into account. 

The beggers cannot be choosers, someone might comment smugly. The bondholders demandsshould be met, to maintain the financial credibility. But, it seems to me, this has to be done with the minimum sacrifices for pension plans and workers. These projected hypothetical savings might make the relatively insignificant contribution to the overall economic picture, and these corrective measures might only add to the further demoralization of the workforce. More expert information, estimates, and opinions are needed on this subject. 

However, it is not bad that this conflict came into the open, and was not swept under the rug. Maybe, something good indeed will come out of this public discussion. 

The political brinkmanship is an art and quite often it is used as a tool, and more so in this age of political chutzpah unbound, the age of Trumpismo-Putinismo (cum Cretinismo, quite sometimes). The creation of good and efficient social policies is the higher art, it should be free from these passing complications, and it should also be more of the fundamental and the longer term enterprise.

They intend to dictate public policy: Puerto Ricos governor spars with federal oversight board

  • Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello gave an impassioned televised address to publicly deny many of the requirements from an oversight board federally appointed to oversee the islands new fiscal plan.
  • They intend to dictate public policy, reducing health benefits while striking public employees and the economy of the Island, he said.
  • Earlier on Wednesday, the oversight board sent several letters to Rossello, saying that changes to the proposed fiscal plan are required.

The Political Menagerie of Puerto Rico – By Michael Novakhov

7:39 AM 4/2/2018 – The Political Menagerie of Puerto Rico – By Michael Novakhov– 

Puerto Rico in itself is the Aesop’s fable, starting with its name.

Various wild animals, including the political ones: “boas, pythons, poisonous snakes, bears, cougars, lions, bengal tigers, jaguars, ocelots, spiders and scorpions have been seized on the island”…

All zis iz simply too much for zis poor little Island, (a former penal colony, which shows in everything), to handle. Too much stuff, and it feels more like a reality show mixed with tragicomedy.

Bat is the two-natured (and two-faced) symbol of the political system of Puerto Rico:

When it is needed for their political (and any other, for them) survival, the Puerto Rico political elites are a mouse, and when it is needed, they are a bird.

And sometimes they even look as the eagle, man-spreading up in the skies, slowly circling in the deep railroad-navy blue of their sweet, childish, dependent, narcissistic dreams.

Aesop in Puerto Rico | The new day
 

mikenova shared this story .

Like the country, Aesop had to import animals for his fables. There on the Greek coast of his native Thrace – a beach as indebted as ours – fauna was scarce. In that archipelago it was very rare to find camels, monkeys, foxes, elephants, cobras, cats, or lions, the animals that most populate the great fabulist’s stories. The esopic experts suggest that most of the fables were Greek versions of Egyptian or Libyan stories, and that the cats that appear in the fables were actually domesticated weasels or that the fearsome lion used to be the denial of the donkey.

All this comes to the house because, in February, the House of Representatives sought to approve the Project-Resolution 251, which orders the commissions of Public Safety, Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environmental Affairs, to investigate and prohibit the trafficking of exotic animals in the island. The driving force behind the measure is the PNP legislator, Jose Aponte Hernandez, and his main concern is drug trafficking. In a press release, our “Pet-Detective” in the Chamber assures that “boas, pythons, poisonous snakes, bears, cougars, lions, bengal tigers, jaguars, ocelots, spiders and scorpions have been seized on the island” and that There is a very close relationship between these animals and drug trafficking. Our Dr.

The biggest temptation is to imagine a spider guarding a cargo of heroin. But beyond the esopic laughter of the spider government, what worries is the foolishness of the legislator when it comes to connecting the trafficking of animals with drugs. Why do not you also take care of the macaws that run away from the mansions on Glasgow Avenue? Where are the animals that suffer the contamination due to the deposition of ashes in Peñuelas? Who will protect the fish, the octopuses and the blessed conch of the Lenten gluttony?

It is sensible to think, then, that the PNP is esopic. It is not only that his party project is mounted in a democratic fable – the symbol of the Democratic Party is a donkey – but that every time they have a problem in front they flee towards Aesop: the animals are always the others. That is why they criminalize animals that do not fit into their fable factory and import animals from other latitudes at any cost. In their eagerness to win – they govern as if they were losing – mythologize even mosquitoes.

No es casualidad que uno de los mayores expertos en las fábulas de Esopo, el inglés B.E. Perry, considera que la fama de las fábulas estaba relacionada con la idea de rebautizar dioses olvidados. De aquí los títulos que algunos coleccionistas de fábulas seleccionaban: “Los asnos que fueron a Zeus”. Algo similar sucedió con las moralejas. Eran los coleccionistas, en su mayoría oradores contratados por reyes y tiranos, quienes colocaban moralejas al final de cada fábula: “Al hombre fraudulento conviene esta fábula” o “También los dirigentes de estado son más eficientes si llevan la patria a confusión.”

Pero si de griegos se trata tendríamos que decir que, si bien el PNP es esópico, el PPD es homérico y el PIP es trágico, más de Edipo que de Antígona. Mientras los populares hacen alianzas con Agamenón, Aquiles y los dioses, los pipiolos se vuelven trágicos, se casan entre ellos, y se sacan los ojos. Pero la manía esópica del PNP les lleva ventaja porque la fábula es un género maleable, sin contexto, que se adapta, cambia de animal, e inventa moralejas nuevas. Así es que el PNP ha sobrevivido a los escándalos más viles de corrupción, privatizaciones y reformas de precariedad laboral. No hay duda, que el PNP se sobrepone con la ligereza de una fábula, justo como aquel esópico murciélago que, herido de alas en el suelo y a punto de ser comido por una comadreja, se salvó cuando el murciélago le dijo a su presa que él no era un pájaro, sino un ratón.

Rob Bishop solicita un diálogo con los acreedores

El Nuevo <a href=”http://Dia.com” rel=”nofollow”>Dia.com</a>Mar 29, 2018
Washington – El congresista republicano Rob Bishop ha expresado hoy su frustración con la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal (JSF) a cargo de las finanzas públicas de Puerto Rico por entender que no ha promovido un diálogo con los acreedores ni reclamado suficiente transparencia al gobierno de la isla.
What we know so far about contacts between Trump campaign and Russia
 

mikenova shared this story .

U.S. President Donald Trump has tweeted no fewer than 17 times that his campaign did not collude with Russians, usually making that point with an exclamation mark for emphasis, and often in all caps: “NO COLLUSION!”

The evidence is less categorical.

There are at least a half-dozen examples to date of people involved in the Trump campaign who either sought dirt gathered by Russian intelligence on Hillary Clinton, or who had other ties to Russians.

The latest came last week in a court filing that stated Trump’s deputy campaign manager knew he was communicating during the campaign with a former officer of Russia’s military intelligence service.

“Boas, pythons, poisonous snakes, bears, cougars, lions, Bengal tigers, jaguars, ocelots, spiders, and scorpions have been seized on the island”… 

“Something similar happened with the morals. Collectors [of fables – M.N.] were, mostly orators hired by kings and tyrants, who placed morals at the end of each fable: “Fraudulent man agrees [with] this fable” or

“State leaders are also more efficient if they lead the country to confusion.”

“We would have to say that, although the PNP is esopic, the PPD is Homeric and the PIP is tragic, more of Oedipus than of Antigone. While the popular make alliances with Agamemnon, Achilles and the gods, the pipiolos become tragic, marry each other, and take out their eyes.”

Puerto Rico in itself is the Aesop’s fable, starting with its name. 

Various wild animals, including the political ones: “boas, pythons, poisonous snakes, bears, cougars, lions, bengal tigers, jaguars, ocelots, spiders and scorpions have been seized on the island”…

All zis iz simply too much for zis poor little Island, (a former penal colony, which shows in everything), to handle. Too much stuff, and it feels more like a reality show mixed with tragicomedy.
