12 things we know about the
Russia investigation

New York Times, by Nicholas Kristof

Original Article

Posted By:Maggie2u, 2/9/2018 10:09:24 AM

President Donald Trump and U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes have been muddying the waters of the Russia investigation, so let’s try to clarify those waters so that they’re as clear as vodka. Here are a dozen things we know. 1. Russia interfered in the U.S. election. The U.S. intelligence community concluded that President Vladimir Putin had “a clear preference” for Trump and “ordered an influence campaign” to hurt Hillary Clinton. The Department of Homeland Security notified 21 states that Russian hackers (mostly unsuccessfully) had targeted their election systems before the 2016 election.

Like the answer to the Meaning Of Life: HOW did the Ruskies interfere with the election?

The Times is p´d off because the states didn´t allow Obama to control the elections as he said he wanted to do. Remember the UN wanted to oversee our ´crooked´ system.

On an intellectual level, Kristof knows the Russian collusion narrative has been blown to bits, but he writes this as a form of therapy for himself and his deluded readers who are not quite ready to deal with the reality that is staring them in the face that, not only won´t go away, but only gets worse with each new revelation.

The democrat left has become a cult of emotional basket cases with paranoid dellusions of Russians behind every door.

The Russians have been doing business with Hillary and Bill for years. It makes no sense that they would want to give that up to back Trump. I saw an old picture of Putin whispering in Hillary´s ear back in the day. He must have been saying, "I´ll give you even more once you are elected." She was smiling like a child being given forbidden candy.

Actually "we" don´t "know" anything of the sort. Almost everything Kristof "knows", has already been discredited as being manufactured by Hillary supporters, consists of pure supposition which cannot be counted as factual information, or is common practice for presidential candidates and not an activity that is considered illegal.
Did Russia try to influence our election? Probably. In any election among many countries, it is certain that Russia has preferences as to who gets elected. Just as we do and our government has also attempted to influence other countries elections. Did the Russians have a preference for Trump? That is debatable given Hillary´s sweetheart deal with them to give the Russians access to 20% of our uranium deposits and their subsequent donations to the Clinton foundation. In fairness though, from a diplomatic perspective, the Russians may have preferred dealing with an American president that wasn´t thoroughly and obviously corrupt and untrustworthy and so might have chosen Trump.

The democrats cave in all the time and are "flexible" globalists. So Putin prefered a tough businessman who vowed to put America first? Ya....no not buying it.

Seattle panel closing in on plan

Seattle Times, by Daniel Beekman    Original Article

A Seattle task force will start wrapping up its work Thursday, setting the stage for the City Council to pass a new tax on high-grossing businesses like Amazon. Supporters and opponents agree the council will almost certainly greenlight some version of the so-called “head tax” next month and allocate the money to combat homelessness. Exactly how much money the tax would raise, which businesses would pay it and how the dollars would be distributed are among the details still to be sorted out.

SEATTLE - A Tukwila man accused of stabbing his cousin then dismembering the man last month should have been in the custody of federal immigration agents, according to Kent police. Rosalio Ramos-Ramos, 37, was being sought by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) late last year and was almost turned over, when an apparent lack of communication between police and Harborview Medical Center resulted in his discharge from the Seattle trauma hospital, police said. “I believe this person needed to be off the streets. He had been deported four times prior, he is a convicted felon and he’s a very violent person,” Kent

The heaviest rain is predicted overnight until about 10 a.m. Sunday, putting the Tolt and Snoqualmie rivers at risk for major overflows. Western Washington is in for yet another drenching as an unusual storm pattern brings heavy rain overnight and into Sunday morning, setting the stage for lowland flooding. The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a flood watch Saturday afternoon for all counties with rivers flowing out of the Cascade mountains: King, Pierce, Snohomish, Skagit, Whatcom, Thurston and Lewis counties. The storm could dump up to 6.5 inches of precipitation in a few mountain areas, with an average 2 to 4 inches across

Starbucks will provide paid sick time to its employees nationwide and give its 150,000 hourly and salaried U.S. workers another wage hike in April, just three months after its regular January pay increase, the company is announcing Wednesday. The Seattle-based coffee giant, which says the benefits expansion will cost $250 million in its first year, also will grant workers additional stock worth $500 to $2,000. “Everyone is getting a raise — the level they get depends on the region and the cost of living,” said spokesman Reggie Borges. Many U.S. companies have announced bonuses or wage increases since Congress last

Afghan pedophiles get free pass from
U.S. military, report says

Posted By: Maggie2u- 1/24/2018 11:18:13     Post Reply
On 5,753 occasions from 2010 to 2016, the U.S. military reported accusations of “gross human rights abuses” by the Afghan military, including many examples of child sexual abuse. If true, U.S. law required military aid to be cut off to the offending unit. Not once did that happen. That was among the findings in an investigation into child sexual abuse by the Afghan security forces and the supposed indifference of the U.S. military to the problem, according to a report released Monday by the Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction, known as SIGAR.

‘A big mistake’: Robert Gates now says
he opposed Obama timeline to pull

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates says he argued against President Obama’s Afghanistan war strategy that set dates for the drawdown of U.S. troops. He supports a decision by President Donald Trump to end such timelines. In an interview with The Seattle Times, Gates said the policy ‘basically told the Taliban how long they had to wait. I think it was a big mistake.’ He said that a decision by President Donald Trump to deploy more troops in an open-ended engagement could eventually prompt the Taliban to negotiate. Gates’ comments offer a sharply different take than he expressed just two years

African immigrants are more educated than

Lots of the news from sub-Saharan Africa is about war, famine, poverty or political upheaval. So it’s understandable if many Americans think most Africans who immigrate to the United States are poorly educated and desperate. Research tells another story. While many are refugees, large numbers are beneficiaries of the diversity-visa program aimed at boosting immigration from underrepresented nations. And on average, African immigrants are better educated than people born in the U.S. or the immigrant population as a whole.

In June, 2006, Donald Trump taped an episode of his reality-television show, “The Apprentice,” at the Playboy Mansion, in Los Angeles. Hugh Hefner, Playboy’s publisher, threw a pool party for the show’s contestants with dozens of current and former Playmates, including Karen McDougal, a slim brunette who had been named Playmate of the Year, eight years earlier. In 2001, the magazine’s readers voted her runner-up for “Playmate of the ’90s,” behind Pamela Anderson. At the time of the party, Trump had been married to the Slovenian model Melania Knauss for less than two years; their son, Barron, was a few

San Salvador - Last week, President Trump torpedoed an immigration deal put forward by a bipartisan group of senators. The Senate responded by rejecting his own, harsher plan. By the end of the week, the immigration debate seemed deadlocked between the fate of the Dreamers and the fate of the wall. But one thing is clear: Any plan that purports to make America safer by making it harder for immigrants to obtain legal status and increasing deportations will actually do the opposite. These proposals, embraced by Mr. Trump, are the same decades-old policies that helped transform Mr. Trump’s archenemy, Mara Salvatrucha

Issue number one that no one in the mainstream media or government wants to acknowledge: fatherlessness. Specifically, the impact of fatherlessness on the boys who grew up to become school shooters.
