    While it’s quite legitimate to be concerned about Russian influence in America politics, its rather remarkable to watch the dizzying pace by which people who in the past have expressed little concern about the matter are now suddenly obsessed with it. There has been plenty of finger pointing at those in President Donald Trump’s orbit about their business ties to Russia.

    I keep thinking one of these days, politicians will remember the internet exists, and along with it, evidence of almost about everything they’ve said or done while in office (and often outside of the office, too — just ask David Wu). Alas… As the Trump cabinet targeting continues, Sen. Claire McCaskill stepped in a huge pile by claiming she never had a meeting or call with a Russian ambassador.

The Associated Press reported Friday Democratic Sens.

    The New York Times published a story Tuesday night claiming that there was contact between associates of Donald Trump and Russian intelligence officials during the presidential race. While the story states that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has found no evidence of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign and essentially is a rehash of a previous story, journalists have gone bonkers over it.

    First off, NFL player Michael Bennett uses a photo of Martin Luther King to smear Israel. Ironically King was a fierce Zionist and passionate supporter of Israel. So Bennett is not only a tool but a fool. Secondly, he stands with the enemies of Israel- the same ideology that holds his people as slaves, still, to this very day.

Kennedy said Romney was trying to take the U.S. back to the “Reagan-Bush years,” a reference to Reagan’s vice president and his White House successor for one term, George H.W. Bush. “I was an independent during the time of Reagan-Bush,” Romney said. “I’m not trying to return to Reagan-Bush.”

Hannity, who has anti-immigration candidate Donald Trump on his shows more frequently than any other presidential hopeful and has been a staunch critic of Florida Senator Marco Rubio ‘s past on the issue, supported a pathway to full citizenship for illegals in late as 2012 — months before the “Gang of 8” amnesty bill was written and when the New York Times says Rubio “pushed for immigration reform with conservative media.”

A draft law allowing 62,000 US troops to use Turkey as a base for invading Iraq failed to gather the necessary absolute majority. Those voting against the motion included members of the opposition social democratic Republican People’s Party (CHP) as well as nearly a third of the deputies of the ruling Party of Justice and Development (AKP).
