    Does this surprise anyone? Washington is full of political wh*res. And the Citizens United case only made things worse.

    “Going once, going twice, going three times! One soul sold to Lucifer for $500,000!”

    Interesting. What is new? What are they going to do? Sell military hardware and drone factories to Azerbaijan via Israeli firms using dual-use-technology? Oh…wait…they already did that. We caught them red handed.

    Do you pretend to ignore this or just do it to save face? Clearly, it is the latter, but at what point do you make the realization that it is not just a Armenian and Turkish problem, but a Armenian and Turkish problem that is purposely left unresolved to benefit economic growth? When is this evident? It seems clear as day what is going on.

    He is going to spent the blood money to pay $250 000 debt (at least) of Hilary Clinton´s campaign. H.C. being secretary of state is not able to ask for money but she is in the position to do other favors.. such as denial of historic facts and so on
    Since Clintons did everything to please Turkish lobby and Turkish government, Turks would be the only ´group willing to offer money to pay the debts of H. Clinton, who failed to become president candidate in 2009

    A major leader? Come on! Mr. Biden. A regional killer! Haven’t you heard about the killing of three Armenian
    soldiers by this regional leader?

    Fund raising? Why? Giving Turkey 3 trillion a year isn’t enough? You gave them a check of $ to get from them a plate of fish and ravioli for $ 2,500 to finance your campaign and … allow them to kill more Armenian and Kurds.Frankly speaking, I did not admire your outfit that day. A fez or a turban would have a better impact on our “Allies”.

    Is anyone investigating as to how deep the Azeri/Turkish Embassies are involved in this fund raising effort?

    Actually, read the whole article at the original site. It’s hilarious and should tell us more about what went on there. It has a completely different angle than this headline. But it does mean we have to keep up our involvement
