Dick Cheney: Russian interference in US election may be "an act of war"

Dick Cheney: Russian interference in US election may be ‘an act of war’


Cheney gave a speech Monday at Economic Times‘ Global Business Summit, where he discussed “the rising number of threats” facing the world, reported Business Insider.

The former vice president said some of those threats — and Russian President Vladimir Putin — threatened “globalization movements.”

“Not long ago, Gorbachev was in power and the Soviets went out of business … but the situation has changed dramatically under Putin,” he said. “I think he has designs on the Baltics … We know he wanted Crimea — he took it.”

“There’s no question that there was a very serious effort made by Mr. Putin and his government, his organization, to interfere in major ways with our basic fundamental democratic processes,” Cheney said. “In some quarters, that could be considered an act of war.”

A photo for anyone who accused Trump of not "working hard" on TrumpCare. LOOK! He's WORKING, dammit.

The ONLY reason I suspect this might be Photoshopped is that he's on a porcelain toilet, not gold.

Jared Kushner flew to Aspen same day as "one of Putins closest confidants" whose wife is pals with

Source: Raw Story

Flight logs show that President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, travelled to Aspen, Colorado on the same day as a Russian oligarch with strong ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

As the president’s push for health care reform went down in flames last week, Kushner and his family were reportedly skiing in Aspen. Trump was said to be unhappy about the timing of the vacation.

Photojournalist Eric Rosenwald examined flight logs from airports in the area and found that Kushner arrived in Aspen on Saturday, March 18 — the same day as Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, who has been described as “one of Putin’s closest confidants.” Abramovich is known to own a home in Aspen.

According to Politico’s Jake Sherman, Abramovich’s wife, Dasha Zhukova, attended President Trump’s inauguration as a guest of Ivanka Trump.

Obama approval in March of 1st term: 60%. Trump approval in March of 1st term: 40%. #HelpMeJared

Following a week that many called the worst of his presidency, the president's job approval rating is once again on the decline.

According to the latest Gallup poll, President Donald Trump's approval rating has fallen down to 40 percent. That is a three-point improvement from last week's record low of 37 percent, but Trump's approval number had been on the rise over this past week before diving again over the weekend.

Trump's numbers are still historically low. In late March of former President Barack Obama's first term, his approval rating hovered around 60 percent. Obama's approval rating dropped to 40 percent -- the lowest number he ever saw -- after two years in office.

Noam Chomsky: Trump could stage a "false flag" terror attack and "change the country instantly"

Noam Chomsky: Trump could stage a ‘false flag’ terror attack and ‘change the country instantly’


Author and political philosopher Noam Chomsky sounded a dire warning on Monday in an interview with AlterNet’s Jan Frel, saying that President Donald Trump could stage a “false flag” terror attack in an effort to consolidate his power and strip Americans of their constitutional rights.

Chomsky warned that eventually the people who voted for Trump will realize that his “promises are built on sand” and begin to lose faith in his presidency, at which point Trump will need someone to scapegoat, so he will say, “‘Well, I’m sorry, I can’t bring your jobs back because these bad people are preventing it.’ And the typical scapegoating goes to vulnerable people: immigrants, terrorists, Muslims and elitists, whoever it may be. And that can turn out to be very ugly.”

“I think that we shouldn’t put aside the possibility that there would be some kind of staged or alleged terrorist act, which can change the country instantly,” Chomsky said.

Chomsky — who has called Trump a “con man” who will drag civilization “down to the utter depths of barbarism” — also said that much of the world is amused at the outrage many Americans feel about Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

My take on how career Republicans view newly-minted SWAT Team Action Figure Jared Kushner.

1). He's a silver-spoon offspring who was handed the business when Chris Christy sent Daddy Kushner to jail

2). He's Trump's son-in-law, and many of them already don't like Trump, so by default, he's toxic, and because he is so close to Trump, he is most likely viewed as a sneaky little shit.

3). He has no experience in government, and the last thing a career politician is going to do is take "advice" (or ORDERS) from someone completely lacking in political experience

4). Bannon tried that "my way or the highway" bullshit on RyanCare and the Freedom Caucas responded with "bite me." As one journalist pointed out yesterday, Bannon is NOT the new Karl Rove. He is not "Trump's Brain." He's nothing more than the bloated hobo derelict taking up space in the west wing.

That said, GO GET 'EM, Jared. I am confident that your Office of American Invention will present bigly, yuge results.

Paul Ryan got down on one knee in unsuccessful bid to woo conservative Rep's vote on healthcare bill

Paul Ryan got down on one knee in unsuccessful bid to woo conservative Rep’s vote on healthcare bill


During negotiations with stubborn members of the House of Representatives, Speaker of the House Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) got down on one knee like a suitor asking for 83-year-old Alaska Rep. Don Young (R)’s hand in marriage when he asked him to vote for the party’s healthcare bill.

Sadly for Ryan, the Washington Post said, it wasn’t enough to convince Young — the longest-serving Republican in Congress — who never agreed to vote for the bill.

The somewhat silly scene represents the lengths that the normally staid Speaker was willing to go to in an attempt to whip up votes for the doomed bill, which the White House and GOP withdrew in the 11th hour on Friday.

White House staff and members of the GOP are reportedly angry and looking for someone to blame as we enter the 9th week of the Trump presidency.
