Well, there was no red wave yesterday, thanks to the steal in Arizona and Georgia, but there is good news today. Former WNBA “Basketball player” Britney Griner has been transferred to a Russian forced labor camp for her nine-year sentence for possession of narcotics.
WNBA star Brittney Griner has been moved to a Russian forced labor camp, nearly nine months after the basketball player was arrested in Russia for allegedly possessing cannabis oil.
There was no “allegedly.” There is video of Russian police recovering the cannabis oil.
The development is the latest update after Griner’s appeal of her 9-year sentence was denied by a Russian court last month. The White House released a statement early Wednesday morning condemning the move.
“Every minute that Brittney Griner must endure wrongful detention in Russia is a minute too long,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in the statement.
Condemn all you want Karine Jean-Pierre, but that bitch is going to a labor camp, and she has no one to blame for herself. Enjoy the daily ration of beets, you despicable cow.
After dithering for months, the illegitimate president has finally decided to look in on the Brittney Griner case. Griner is a *giggle* WNBA basketball player who was stupid enough to carry drugs in her luggage.
Griner was immediately arrested, as she should have, and now F. Joe Biden is looking to make a swap with Russia.
Get this; a no-talent WNBA player for Viktor “The Merchant of Death” Bout, arguably the most notorious arms dealer on Earth.
The U.S. has offered a deal to Russia aimed at bringing home WNBA star Brittney Griner and another jailed American, Paul Whelan, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Wednesday. In a sharp reversal of previous policy, Blinken also said he expects to speak with his Kremlin counterpart for the first time since before Russia invaded Ukraine to discuss the deal and other matters.
Blinken’s comments marked the first time the U.S. government has publicly revealed any concrete action it has taken to secure the release of Griner, who was arrested on drug-related charges at a Moscow airport in February and testified Wednesday at her trial. Though it is unclear if the proposal will be enough for Russia to release the Americans, the public acknowledgment of the offer at a time when the U.S. has otherwise shunned Russia reflects the mounting pressure on the administration over Griner and Whelan and its determination to get them home.
I have no feelings about Whelan. Russia claims he was caught spying, but Russia lies every time they open their mouths. Trading Griner for Viktor Bout is literally insane. You think he is going to go legit and open a small firearms store? Wake the f**k up!
Blinken did not offer details on the proposed deal outlined to the Russians, but U.S. officials suggested it is similar to the prisoner swap that secured the release of Marine veteran Trevor Reed in April. Russia has made no secret of its desire for convicted Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout to be freed from U.S. prison and the officials would not rule out that Bout’s release is on the table.
Cripes, they are outright telling the Biden administration they want Bout back! You think they want him in Russia so he can become a legitimate businessman? They want him because they want Bout to start supplying Russia with arms. If Biden does this, America is going to fall further that it already has.
Vladimir Putin and the rest of his Russian stooges rejected a cease-fire during the Eastern Orthodox holy week. The suggestion from the United Nations was to allow civilians to be evacuated from the war zone.
Russia rejected a temporary cease-fire in Ukraine that the United Nations secretary general requested for the purpose of civilian evacuation during the Eastern Orthodox Holy Week leading up to Easter. Russia’s deputy UN ambassador said the cease-fire request was not sincere and would only provide time to arm Ukrainian soldiers.
I am really starting to despise Russia, their dictator, and the people at large. When it’s Putin’s time to meet his Maker, I sincerely hope he has plenty to answer for.
Dmitry Polyanskiy, the deputy ambassador, told the Security Council Tuesday that the cease-fire requests were “insincere, and in practice they merely point to an aspiration to provide Kyiv nationalists breathing room to regroup and receive more drones, more antitank missiles and more MANPADS,” The New York Times reported. “MANPADS” refers to man-portable air-defense systems, smaller and more portable surface-to-air missiles.
“Kyiv nationalists.” You mean the citizens of Kyiv who are only trying to save their country after your pricks invaded their homeland? Go f**k yourself, Polyanskiy.
Whatever you think of this invasion, I believe the Soviets need to be put down like rabid dogs.
WNBA basketball “star” Britney Griner was arrested in a Russian airport after customs officers found her vape sticks filled with hash oil. Hash is illegal in Russia, but Griner is a “celebrity,” so she likely thought she would get away with it. She chose… poorly.
WNBA champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist Brittney Griner has been detained in Russia and could face up to 10 years in prison after customs officers found “vapes” containing hashish oil in her luggage back in February, reports say.
The Russian Federal Customs Service released a statement Saturday confirming that an American “two-time Olympic basketball champion” had been taken into custody in February after a narcotics’ dog at Sheremetyevo International Airport near Moscow alerted the athlete’s luggage.
It is unfathomable to me that a “professional” athlete would be using drugs. Truly shocking.
“After scanning the bag, the customs officers noticed vapes,” a translation of the statement read. “The experts found that the cartridges for them contain liquid with hash oil.”
According to the statement, Griner could face anywhere between 5-10 years if found guilty.
Hilariously, the State Department is demanding this American icon – giggle – be released at once. Perhaps they think they are dealing with France, and not Russia. Considering Putin’s current mental state, I wouldn’t be surprised if Russia sentences this dope to life in prison.
Oh, and if this was not entirely clear, I could not care less what happens to this woman. She’s been arrested before, and she didn’t learn her lesson. She only has herself to blame.
Meet Alina Kovaleva, a 28-year old Russian who competes in curling. While Alina is crazy stupid hot, she is also a very talented curler.
She started in the sport in 2008, and since then, she has won the World junior Championships in 2013, the European Championships in 2015, and finished second twice in the World Championships in 2017 and 2021.

A Russian woman adopted a brown bear born and raised in captivity, and the two have become the very best of friends.
Archie the brown bear and Veronika Dichka like to spend time fishing on the lake in their native Novosibirsk, in southern Siberian, Russia. Veronika rescued Archie from a safari park that was running out of business two years ago and has since kept him as a pet.
“We rescued him from the safari park but can’t release him into the wild as he has lived in captivity his whole life,” Veronika said.
The pair are like any other friends cherishing each other’s company and enjoy their quality time in the water. (H/T – Mike AKA Proof)
Russian women are very tough, so maybe she knows what she is doing. It’s a great story, but I hope Veronika and Archie’s relationship never goes sour.
Meet Anna Baranchuk, a 27-year old rugby player from Russia. Yes, rugby, so you know she can beat the living daylights out of most men on Planet Earth.
Anna Baranchuk (born 18 December 1993) is a rugby sevens player. She was born in Prokopyevsk, Russia. She competed in the women’s tournament at the 2020 Summer Olympics.
Despite Anna’s determination, Russia finished eighth in the final standings. It could be worse; they could have finished twelfth (dead last).

Three members of the Russian air force were killed after their ejection seats suddenly engaged without warning. There is no proof the flight crew had evidence which would put Hillary Clinton in prison.
Three crew have been killed in an accident today involving a Russian Aerospace Forces Tu-22M3 Backfire-C bomber at Shaykovka airbase in the Kaluga region, western Russia. The Russian Ministry of Defense confirmed that the crew lost their lives due to an “abnormal operation” of the ejection seats.
Russia’s state-run media outlet RIA Novosti said the incident occurred while the Tu-22M3 was being prepared for a training flight at Shaykovka, while its counterpart TASS specified that the ejections were initiated when the bombers’ two engines were started on the ground. It remains unclear whether the seats were activated deliberately, or whether the ejection sequence was unintentional. A fourth crew member reportedly survived the accident and was taken to a medical facility, but it’s not known whether they ejected or remained aboard the aircraft.
I’m not about to claim the Russian military is not a threat, but they certainly not the powerhouse they were in the 80’s. There are far too many examples like these lately: ammunition explosions, downed jets, malfunctioning tanks and warships. Their military is in serious trouble.
