  • The 2 ways Russia may have helped Trump steal the election aren't what you think

    **SNIP** The Russia-interference-was-no-big-deal crowd also clings to the fact there’s no evidence of the greatest fear when it comes to election stealing — that hackers accessed electronic voting systems on election night and changed vote totals to hand the contest to Trump. And yet — buried beneath the headlines on Friday’s indictments — were two largely new revelations that dramatically elevated the possibility that Russian meddling wasn’t just morally and criminally wrong but actually went a long way toward snatching victory away from Clinton and handed it to Trump on Election Day. — Hacking of state voter rolls. — The...

    Coming off a contentious NATO summit and a trip to the U.K. in which he seemed to undercut the government of America's closest ally, President Trump took aim at another Western institution just days before his high-stakes meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. In an interview with "CBS Evening News" anchor Jeff Glor in Scotland on Saturday, President Trump named the European Union -- comprising some of America's oldest allies -- when asked to identify his "biggest foe globally right now." "Well, I think we have a lot of foes. I think the European Union is a foe, what they...

    The Hill ^ | 07/15/18 03:05 PM EDT | SHARYL ATTKISSON, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR
    Peter Strzok, the FBI’s former head of counterespionage, owed the American public explanations about the vitriolic messages he sent on his work devices while investigating Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. And he deserved the opportunity to be heard. In testifying to Congress last week, Strzok ended up side-stepping many questions, stating that the FBI had directed him not to answer. But we still discovered a lot. Here are ten things we learned from Peter Strzok’s testimony to Congress about his text messages and other actions: 1. Strzok’s hatred for Trump did not impact any of his professional actions or judgments....

    Former US President Barack Obama arrived in Kenya on Sunday for a quick family visit before he heads to South Africa to attend Nelson Mandela's birthday tribute. This is his first trip to the country of his father's birth since leaving office. Obama met Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, opposition leader Raila Odinga and other top officials after his arrival. On Monday, he'll attend the inauguration of a sports and vocational center founded by his sister, Auma Obama.

    I see the press, and others, have enjoyed discussing the appropriateness of President Trump’s etiquette while visiting the Queen. The Telegraph asks “Did Donald Trump forget to bow to the Queen?” Others forego the question and jump directly to the outrage.You see what happens when history is no longer taught on either side of the pond? Nobody remembers that we won the Revolutionary War.Of course there are others who likewise forgot we won WWII: You know who didn’t forget who won WWII? I’ll bet Ike would be on board with MAGA.Posted from: MOTUS A.D.

    GOP Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) on Friday said that if President Trump isn't prepared to hold Russian President Vladimir Putin "accountable" for aggression toward the U.S. then he should cancel their meeting next week. "President Trump must be willing to confront Putin from a position of strength and demonstrate that there will be a serious price to pay for his ongoing aggression towards the United States and democracies around the world. If President Trump is not prepared to hold Putin accountable, the summit in Helsinki should not move forward," McCain said in a statement.

    The question is, if Russian intelligence agencies successfully hacked into the DNC servers and worse, our election systems, shouldn't someone in our government be held accountable? What were our own intelligence and law enforcement agencies doing at the time? Sleeping at the switch? Why didn't Obama, Hillary and the democrats harden their systems and train their people in cyber security? Why was Hillary not prosecuted for her illegal and obviously NOT secure personal server that had classified government documents flowing through it to Russia and whomever, including assorted sexual perverts laptops? This all happened on Obama and Hillary's watch! Thank...

    Videos at link. President Trump claimed Friday ahead of his summit with Vladimir Putin that the Russian president would not have invaded Crimea had he been in office, calling the globally condemned annexation an “Obama disaster.” The comments marked Trump's latest attempt to set the stage for his meeting with Putin, with a combination of tough talk and suggestions of future improved ties. “I think we could have a very good relationship with President Putin,” Trump said, adding that he was not going into the meeting with “high expectations.” “We’ll see.” Trump tackled questions about Russia during a joint press...

    It is time for Americans to wake up, stand up, #Walkaway from the new Democrat [Socialist] Party Intermarriage is not always a matter of race or religion - sometimes it is a matter of politics. In 2008, Barack Hussein Obama officiated at the wedding of the Democrat party and Socialism. In this case the bride and groom came from very different family backgrounds with diametrically opposed world views and political perspectives. The bride’s family, Constitution, was 242 years old and deeply committed to individualism, equality, liberty, and limited powers of government. The groom’s family, Socialism, came to America in 1877...

    Former President Obama lost more than 2 million followers on Twitter this week as the social platform removed inactive and locked accounts from follower counts, according to a preliminary review by The Hill. Obama, who had 104 million Twitter followers prior to the crackdown, had roughly 101 million as of Thursday afternoon. Still, the former president remains the third most-followed person on the platform behind Katy Perry and Justin Bieber. President Trump, who had 53.4 million Twitter followers before the platform began pulling accounts from follower lists this week, had 53.1 million followers as of Thursday afternoon. Trump remains the...

    n a major story that came and went, President Obama shut down a major drug operation run by Hezb'allah because he didn't want to upset Iran's mullahs and endanger his Iran deal. Seems the Iran deal was considerably more important to his "legacy" than any concern about drug-dealing, the opioid epidemic, or just the idea of putting terrorists who finance themselves through the global drug trade out of business. Politico did the story about how Obama shut down Project Cassandra, so it should have gotten attention, yet it didn't. The whole thing recalls something security expert Rachel Ehrenfeld memorably told...

    Meanwhile, duped conservative politicians both past and present: Be aware that George Clooney’s texting buddy is Clooney described as the “filthiest stuff” and “foul” Sacha Baron Cohen—who reportedly interviewed Sarah Palin posing as a disabled veteran in a wheelchair—isn’t the first to use revered US military as props. Former President Barack Obama and his overbearing wife, Michelle came first. Even as he was gutting the U.S. military, in 2013, a preening Obama created something of a stir when he summoned over two marines to hold umbrellas over himself and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan for protection from light rain...

    Hat Tip: Wendy Gilmore Pollak When Obama died, George Washington met him at the Pearly Gates. He slapped him across the face and yelled, "How dare you try to destroy the Nation I helped conceive?" Patrick Henry approached, punched him in the nose and shouted, "You wanted to end our liberties, but you failed." James Madison followed, kicked him in the groin and said, "This is why I allowed our government to provide for the common defense!" Thomas Jefferson was next, beat Obama with a long cane and snarled, "It was evil men like you who inspired me to write...

    Politics has become so mindless I’m almost ready to watch soccer. On the left, Trump is the root of all evil. On the right, the pro-Trumpers mostly just repeat themselves. So to make things more interesting, let a Trump supporter tell you how the Democrats can win an election. Spoiler: It’s not Bernie Sanders holding the party back; it’s Barack Obama. I know at this moment, it looks pretty hopeless. I don’t think socialism is the ticket, or open borders either. And the “Abolish ICE” crowd makes it seem as if the party of FDR and JFK has a death...

    The Trump administration announced Tuesday it planned to end what it suggested was an illegal Obama-era rule allowing unions to Federal law generally prohibits states from skimming money from Medicaid payments bound for independent in-home personal care workers. But in 2014, the Obama administration created an exception, saying that states could divert some of that Medicaid money to unions, on the theory that these workers effectively were public-sector employees. Eleven left-leaning states have used that provision to raise more than $200 million a year for unions by taking it from health workers who often didn't even realize it, according to...

    For a while now democrats have been walking down the road toward self-destruction but more recently they have taken a left turn down the steep slippery bank to perdition. On July 4, normally a happy day full of pride democrats led off with a downer: “Everywhere we look, our most fundamental values are under attack. Thousands of children have been separated from their parents at our southern border. At our highest court, workers' rights are being taken away, voting rights are under assault, Muslim Americans are being discriminated against for their faith, and women's right to choose is under threat...
