Meet Olga Kharlan.
Olga is a ridiculously talented fencer, and already has two Olympic bronze medals in fencing (2016, 2012).
Olha Hennadiyivna Kharlan (Ukrainian: born 4 September 1990) is a Ukrainian sabre fencer. She holds a bronze medal from both the 2016 Summer Olympics and the 2012 Summer Olympics and is a four-time World champion (2013, 2014, 2017 and 2019) and five-time European champion.
She was Olympic team champion in the 2008 Summer Olympics, twice World team champion (2009 and 2013) and twice European team champion. Kharlan was named athlete of the year at the 2009 Ukrainian Heroes of Sports Years awards. She briefly pursued a political career.
Imagine having this gorgeous woman being your representative. Good grief, I would be at her office every single day volunteering to fill her envelopes, if you know what I mean.
There are more photos below the fold…

There are few GOP establishment politicians I despise more than Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse. The man has done nothing in the Senate, mostly because he spends his time attacking President Trump at every turn. Such was the case yesterday, when Sasse chided actual Republicans for “circling the wagons” around the president.
Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse said Wednesday his fellow Republicans “ought not to be rushing to circle the wagons” around President Donald Trump over his pressuring of the Ukrainian president to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son.
Wow Benny, you’re so edgy. No wonder Mitt Romney likes cuddling with you during late night “filibusters.”
also knocked Democrats who demanded the president’s impeachment before they had viewed the whistleblower complaint at the heart of the Ukraine matter.
“Republicans ought not to be rushing to circle the wagons to say there’s no there there when there’s obviously lots that’s very troubling there,” he continued. “The administration ought not to be attacking the whistleblower as some talking points suggest they plan to do.”
Someone who can stand to be near Sasse for twelve seconds should ask him exactly what’s so “troubling” about a president calling another president. They should also ask Benny what’s troubling about a president inquiring about an obviously inappropriate, if not corrupt, business deal made solely for future access to an American vice-president.
What I find troubling is during all Sasse’s whining, he never mentioned the core issue of the matter: Hunter Biden’s board appointment and Joe Biden’s demand to fire the prosecutor investigating it.
It’s a good thing the president canceled Nancy Pelosi’s junket to Eurasia, because sloppy choppers has a problem with spending other people’s money.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s congressional delegation (CODEL) to Belgium, Egypt and Afghanistan garnered extra attention after President Donald Trump banned her from using military aircraft, but the trip would not have been the first time she used Air Force money to travel the world.
Pelosi’s trip to Italy and Ukraine from July 30 to Aug. 6, 2015, cost the Air Force $184,587.81, according to documents released Saturday under a 2015 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by Judicial Watch. Her delegation was made up of nine other members of Congress, including Democratic Reps. Anna Eshoo of California and Marcia Fudge of Ohio.
Four family members, including Pelosi’s husband Paul Pelosi, were on the trip. The delegation dined at restaurants including James Beard American Restaurant in Milan, where a five-course meal cost up to $190, according to Fine Dining Lovers. The lawmakers also toured the Vatican and met up with Italian dignitaries, including President Sergio Mattarella and then-Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, according to their itinerary.
I remember a day or so after Pelosi’s cancellation, the MSM lost their Shiite because the First Lady traveled to Florida. Now, I’m no accountant, but I’d wager a flight to Florida is vastly less expensive than one across Europe and Asia. Just sayin’.

Today’s babe is Anastasia Pavlova, a 21-year old archer from Ukraine. She won the bronze medal at the 2015 European Games in the women’s team event, and this is her first Olympiad.
You would think hailing from that war-torn country, Anastasia would take up shooting. You would also think there wouldn’t be smoking hot babes from Ukraine, but you would be wrong…
