Steven Seagal Appointed 'Special Emissary' From Russia To The United States

ㅤ"Seagal, who is not just a martial arts master but also a close friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin (and a Russian citizen, thanks to a special decree from Putin conferred last year), is tasked with working ‘in the humanitarian sphere,’ and reaching out to Americans ‘in the sphere of culture, public and youth exchanges,’ CNN reports.
ㅤAccording to reports, the role will be along the lines of a United Nations goodwill ambassador — a sort of mascot and public relations representative. The Russian government apparently feels that Seagal commands some importance and relevance in American society, even though Seagal hasn’t starred in a movie that opened somewhere other than ‘on demand’ in more than a decade."

ㅤ”Russia was against Trump in the 2016 Election – and why not, I want strong military & low oil prices.” — DJT

ㅤSounds like a more logical conclusion than the conclusion that Russia was opposed to Hillary.
ㅤBut as for me, I’m still not convinced there was any interference at all.

ㅤIt’s unclear to me what the President will be signing, so I’m not giving any opinion about this yet.
ㅤJohn McCain’s statement makes me wonder if his “cancer” is intended to hide latent paranoid schizophrenia. McCain should have just said, “I see Russians that nobody else sees!”

ㅤOh the outcome when one side becomes aggressive. The other side becomes aggressive and both sides lose. John McCain will be replaced by another politician who tries to convince us that there can be any other outcome. Presently we have an overabundance of politicians trying to fill McCain’s shoes.

Trump could seek ‘tougher’ Russia sanctions: White House aide

Story at Reuters, image from reuters.com.

ô¿ô
ㅤMy understanding is that the President has the option of vetoing only portions of a bill while approving the other portions. I suspect Trump will approve the sanctions but veto Congress’es attempt to prevent him from negotating the cancellation of the sanctions. “Tougher sanctions” would just be a gimmick to sell his veto.

Considering no physical evidence of hacking, tampering nor actual collusion has been presented to the American public, no honest, sane person would accept the intelligence conclusion.

ㅤSurprise. Nobody in the House was employing sinister delay tactics. The Senate bill was political smoke and mirrors.

Obama Speechwriter Admits Democrats Were Wrong on Russia

ô¿ô
Obama was NOT wrong to call out politicians who leverage Cold War fear. Remember that currently the DP is doing everything it can to legitimize their factless collusion story, and this admission of being wrong is propaganda declaring Russia to be evil. The DP knows that Hillary is safe. Obama himself made sure of that.

Verizon data of 6 million users leaked online

This was a REAL cyberattack. Totally unlike the flimsy story that has been created by the Democrats. Note the clear footprints left by the hackers. Note how Verizon immediately made the details of the cyberattack public, even to the detriment of Verizon. By contrast, the alleged Russian hackers left no footprints, which is practically impossible to do. Note how no details of the alleged Russian cyberattacks have been made public.
