Britain gets tough on Putin after nerve agent attack -– and the Trump White House punts – The Washington Post

Perhaps it would be best for this White House to move it daily briefings from Washington to the Kremlin. Sarah Huckabee Sanders seems hell-bent on marching lockstep with the propaganda put out by Putin and Trump. I heard yesterday in a MSNBC story about Putin and their hold on Trump that Putin has said in the past that he has information that would be harmful to Trump. He is blackmailing Trump and Trump is complicit in this. Trump should have never ever run for the presidency if he thought he could be blackmailed. Doing so is treason in my mind and in the mind of many legal Scholars.

I applaud Theresa May on Great Britain for standing up to Putin and his attack on their country. Now if we only had a President Who was actually able to say how Russia attacked us in 2016 and is doing so right now through our electoral system. It repulses me to think that this man in the White House does not want to do anything about such a threat to our democracy. But then again does he really like our democracy? He seems to like dictator is a lot better than the way we run our country.

Sanders faces tough sell in persuading superdelegates to switch allegiances

“Sanders faces tough sell in persuading superdelegates to switch allegiances”, and that is the understatement of this election season. Bernie Sanders has not been a Democrat until he wanted to become president. He claims that he has raised money for 3 Congressional Democrats, wow 3! Someone should explain to him how politics works. You rub my back I’ll rub your back. And Hillary Clinton has been a Democrat since 1964 and has raised this year 15 million dollars for down ticket candidates across the United States. And he thinks he’s going to be able to switch super delegates that count on this money for reelection. Bernie Sanders like his campaign is delusional.
