  1. Thank you Sharyl for laying out the timeline. I don’t have the resources to put out a graphic but one would be greatly appreciated .

  2. Excellent details on the Ukrainian corruption that Rudy Giuliani had uncovered as part of his defense of President Trump prior to the Mueller report release. Clearly the President was wary of the Ukrainian political culture and its direct attempt to undermine his election and was justified in getting reassurances from the new Zelensky administration that corruption was going to be rooted out going forward.

    One Ukrainian player that is re-emerging as a way to smear Giuliani, Joe deGenova, and his wife, Victoria Toensing is Dmitry Firtash. Firtash is a wealthy Ukrainian with pro-Russian sympathies who was the target of US criminal charges for bribery in India that affected the Boeing supply chain. The US has been trying to get him extradited for years despite having several foreign courts reject the charges as fabricated. During the Porshenko administration the US demanded that Vicktor Shokin, the Ukrainian Special Prosecutor indict Firtash on criminal charges despite the fact that, according to Shokin, there was no evidence to supporting their charges. This was the basis for the Burisma smear campaign to have Shokin fired for “corruption”. that was echoed by several NGO’s and other European agencies.

    It appears that people editing the Wikipedia page for Firtash have been updating it to add accusations published in the NYT that Giuliani had conspired with Firtash to get “dirt” on Biden and had introduced him (through Lev Parnas) to deGenova and Toensing who are now representing him in his extradition fight. The tone of this disinformation as well as the denials by the people named suggests the Firtash still has some powerful enemies at work in the media. The struggle between pro and anti Russian Ukrainian factions seems to still be bleeding into US politics.

  3. Seems to me what the American people need is more transparency. I would think the government agencies of state and ambassadorships and intelligence community would have the documentation necessary to show me and all Americans the truth on Ukraine today. It’s my hope that your work here might bring out of the shadows enough facts to force full transparency.

    Sharyl, your work is absolutely vital. I encourage you to do three things on behalf of citizens like me. .

    1. Continue to expose and counter “false narratives”.
    2. Please aggressively push all government agencies for transparency.
    3. Continue to define and confirm what “journalistic integrity”. Looks like.

    You are very important to those of us that have been screaming at the television for 40 years about false narratives and arrogant elite propaganda, crony capitalism, and bad government.

    We haven’t been blind to it. We have been helpless. With the internet, we now have true freedom of information and at a level that is necessary for an informed electorate.
    With this new playing field, I see a small chance to save the country. I see Your work as vital to achieving that goal.

    1. Your link isn’t pasted in correctly – I had to copy it and add “Ukraine-deals” at the end, eliminating the space.
      Compelling information, but where did you get it from? The article has little to no references to sources. I’d really like to see where the information was coming from, because it confirms a lot of suspicions that I have, but I cannot believe it all because it is not sourced.

    1. I’m glad it was removed previously. It’s blatantly untrue. It’s too bad, too, because if it had been represented correctly (Biden’s son, Pelosi’s son, Romney’s aide and Kerry’s son’s friend), It would have served to raise awareness, instead of perpetuate disbelief.

    1. Your posts may have been removed because the site is called “Real News Network”, but your articles do not provide any sources, so it’s not news, it’s opinion.

    2. What proof are you providing? Here’s an example:
      “Mitt Romney’s top adviser, Joseph Cofer Black, joined the board of the Ukraine energy firm, Burisma, while Hunter Biden was also serving on the board. Hunter Biden was taking a salary of $50,000 per month from Burisma, and was simultaneously engaged in a relationship with John Kerry’s stepson, Chris Heinz, and mobster Whitey Bulger’s nephew, in a private equity firm, that allegedly appeared to be laundering millions of dollars in foreign money from China & the Ukraine, through Latvia, and back to the US. ”
      When did Black join? How did you find that out? What proof do you have that they were on the board at the same time? Who reported Hunter’s salary? How do you know it was $50,000?
      What is the significance of the relationship between Heinz and Kerry’s stepson? What kind of relationship? Is this even relevant to the conversation?
      Who alleges that money appears to have been laundered?

      Without context, this just reads like a daytime talk show. It’s not news.

  4. Hi Sharyl,
    Glad you are diversifying technically. Meaning, more access to your material.

    When you find important articles, don’t just bookmark the link, convert the articles to a PDF file you can save to a folder somewhere. All browsers, on all platforms can do this.

    Also, have you seen the 3 documentaries from Glen Beck? Part 4 due out just before Christmas. Find them on YouTube, at “The blaze”, they are about 2 hrs each, that’s how you’ll know it’s the right ones, about 6 weeks apart. He has links to all documents too. Much is based on John Solomon’s work, and the documents he made available to the public. I will hit you up on Twitter with links to save you time.

    Lastly, your website on mobile needs some work. The pop-up when first opening is off to the side of the main text column on mobile, Android, Firefox browsers, and others. Please let your tech support know, because it is not intuitive the the way to clear the grayed out article, is to scroll sideways, hit the “X” on pop-up. This could be off putting to visitors.
