    Gregg Smith (for CD-3) ⇨ Erik Prince ⇨ Khalifa Haftar ⇨ Vladimir Putin (Fat Donnie’s Bestie)

    Yes, I am saying: guilt by association.


    “Gregg was named CEO and Blackwater Founder Erik Prince”


    “Erik Prince, Trump Ally, Violated Libya Arms Embargo, U.N. Report Says…Eastern Libya is now in the hands of Khalifa Hifter, the powerful militia commander whom Mr. Prince agreed to support”


    “Russia sends 310 more mercenaries to Libya…In total, Russia has dispatched around 6,000 mercenaries from regions in Syria under the regime to fight in Libya at different times.”

      I'm more interested in Gregg Smith's broader bio … From the Colorado Sun:

      Meet Gregg Smith, the Blackwater-connected Democrat new to Colorado and running to unseat Lauren Boebert

      Now he lives on a ranch in Westcliffe, a small, conservative town west of Pueblo. Records show a company with his Arizona address bought the property, which includes two houses with a total of 10 bedrooms and 10 baths, in July for $1.5 million.

      Smith registered in Custer County as an unaffiliated voter in March 2019, only switching to the Democratic Party on Friday, according to records from the Colorado Secretary of State’s office….

      Smith spent 30 years as a “back-bench conservative Republican,” but says he is now a “firm” Democrat. He made a number of small donations to Democratic U.S. Senate candidates in 2020, including John Hickenlooper, Steve Bullock in Montana and Cal Cunningham in North Carolina, according to data from the Federal Election Commission

      “I voted for Hillary (Clinton) in 2016. I voted for Joe (Biden) in 2020,” Smith said. “I firmly believe in the Democratic platform.”

      • The realist says:

        "I firmly believe in the Democratic platform." Once he loses the CD3 primary he'll change to something else again. And I would like to know more about the Erik Prince connection – his bio sounds as if it's whitewashing. Most of us would never do business with Prince to start with.

    The GJ Daily Sentinel is as annoying as Lauren, Calamity Jane, Boebert.  No matter how stupid, inane and otherwise unnews worthy her statements,  they put her front and center.  It's embarrassing to call them a newspaper.

    A book could be written on the things Allen West doesn't know.

    Like clockwork, MAGAts confusing #cancelculture for Adam Smith's fist.

    It’s a shitty pillow manufactured by a clown.

    It's Alabama but… maybe our boot-strapping troll could help us out on how unions are a good thing given he's protected by one?
