U.S. Senator from Ohio and potential 2020 Democratic candidate for president Sherrod Brown is a Russophile, according to a profile in The Atlantic.
The profile said that Brown’s third-favorite quote is from Leo Tolstoy, famed 19th century Russian author of “War and Peace.” The quote is about the “equality and brotherhood of men,” which is the sort of collectivist propaganda that led to Stalin’s slaughter of 60 million innocent people in the 20th century.
According to the piece, though, Brown does not outwardly want to be seen as a collectivist like some of his younger lawmaking colleagues.
“You don’t hear politicians talk about ‘the equality and brotherhood of men’ any more,” the piece said. “It sounded to me like Eugene Debs, the great socialist leader of the early-20th century. ‘Jeez, don’t put that down,’ Brown said, before acknowledging that with Debs pretty much forgotten, the comparison would have no effect one way or the other.”
Brown also studied Russian in college, and not just the language. Russian Studies was his major.
“Brown grew up comfortably in Mansfield, Ohio—his father was a doctor and his mother a social activist—and he attended Yale, where he majored in Russian studies. (Schultz forbids him from speaking Russian in public.)” the piece said.
Brown finds himself in an odd position for a Democrat in 2019. His party has decided that Russia is an enemy to be destroyed – a nation that subverted America’s democracy in order to bolster the candidacy of President Donald J. Trump.
“In other words, Brown discovered Tolstoy before he discovered the working class,” the piece said. “In the shallow version of American politics, he would have had to choose between bookish idealism and the cause of ordinary people. Instead, his love of the first nourished his commitment to the second.”

Arizona Legislature to Hold Public Hearings on Matters of Election Integrity, “Stop the Steal” Rally Being Held Saturday
The hearing will be held on November 30th.
The Arizona legislature will hold a hearing on election improprieties and the integrity of the state’s 2020 election on Monday. Members of the Arizona Senate and House of Representatives will participate on the public event.
Representative Mark Finchem of Legislative District will chair the hearing.
“Since shortly before the 2020 election a number of my colleagues and I have been examining potential fraud pathways and illegal actions through which our 2020 election could become tainted. My worst fears have come to light in the process, and so far the evidence has been blocked from an official public forum,” Rep. Finchem said. “A few weeks ago I requested approval for the House Federal Relations Committee to hold a hearing on the integrity of the Arizona 2020 election. That hearing has not yet been approved by House leadership, and time is of the essence to show proof that our election has been compromised.”
Finchem cited sworn affidavits attesting to irregularities in Arizona’s election, voter fraud, and poor management on the part of (now outgoing) Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes.
“After a review of the statistical anomalies, and there are to numbers to count, affidavits of improper actions, and community outrage that has grown out of what appears to voters to be an attempt to throw the election through a number of fraudulent efforts, we decided as a Members of the Legislature, and not as members of any specific committee, that we should move forward with a public hearing.”
Trump campaign attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis are expected to attend the hearing. Joe Biden appears to have won the state of Arizona by just over 10,000 votes.

State legislators have an imperative to remedy and rectify any election issues stemming from governmental improprieties, and can potentially appoint electors to the electoral college of their own volition.
A massive “Stop the Steal” rally is being held at the Arizona Legislature on Saturday at noon, with speakers including conservative commentator Nicholas J. Fuentes and Infowars host Alex Jones.
