“Tina Peters, the indicted Mesa County election clerk, is facing a third ethics complaint because MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell can’t keep his mouth shut. In April, Lindell admitted to spending upwards of half a million dollars for Peters’ legal defense fund, a move that is highly illegal under Colorado law. Because of Lindell’s admission, Peters is now facing a new round of legal problems that could derail her ambitions to become the Secretary of State for Colorado. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

“Last week, Tucker Carlson tried to claim on his program that he didn’t even know what “replacement theory” was, which was a feeble attempt to deflect blame and criticism away from comments he’s made on his show. But the folks at Politifact weren’t having it, and they have identified at least 400 different episodes where Carlson espoused tenets of the “theory” to his massive audience. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.
“With $40 billion in war funding secured, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is now suggesting that the Ukraine war will only be resolved through diplomacy. He also noted that Ukraine can definitely win the war, so what point he was making remains unclear. But this is the first definitive mention from Zelensky that negotiations could possibly end the conflict.
Jimmy, The Dive’s Jackson Hinkle and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the progress of the war and whether Zelensky’s statement reflects an acknowledgement that prospects on the battlefield are not good for his nation.”
“The FBI says Shihab Ahmed Shihab Shihab wanted to provide material support to ISIS by telling a FBI confidential source that he wanted to smuggle people into the country in order “to murder former president George W. Bush.” NBC News’ Ken Dilanian reports.”

“The International Criminal Court may not have caught up with George Bush yet, but a couple of comedian pranksters from Russia recently managed when they placed a phone call to the former President purporting to be Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. In the ensuing conversation Bush made some rather shocking admissions about U.S. foreign policy in Ukraine and provocative actions against Russia.
Jimmy shows how the brief call reveals that other nations should never trust promises made by the United States government.”

“With 150 trees sprouting across 5 floors of terraces, balconies, and roof gardens, apartment complex “25 Verde” rises like a giant treehouse, a forest-building ecosystem combining geothermal energy, water reuse, and natural cooling.
The 63-unit building’s design continues the arboreal theme, with wooden shingles and steel supports that look like tree trunks. In addition to cleaning the air around the building, the trees dampen noise pollution, provide shade, and help regulate the building’s temperature.
The 200 trees (150 on the building + 50 in the courtyard) produce upwards of 150,000 liters of oxygen per hour during daylight hours and absorb almost 200,000 liters of carbon dioxide during nighttime hours.
Water is captured on the roof gardens and run down to the ground level forming a large pond that adds ambiance and a cooling factor in summer. The building’s heating and cooling systems make use of geothermal energy, using heat pumps and an old well used by a 1950s Fiat factory at the same location.
Corten steel trees support much of the structure and serve as conduits for rainwater and greywater. Architect Luciano Pia modeled these on the majestic old Platanus trees in Turin. His mixed structure of architecture and plants is a unique work of biotecture that reimagines how we can live in cities. 25 Verde resident Paolo Botto gives us a tour of the building.
