For Europe to resume the status quo, it needs to break away from the "western" alliance and the sanctions imposed upon the Kremlin which solely benefit the populist agenda of Washington, and certainly not Europe proper, which it is now quite clear, is far more reliant on Russia than vice versa. it is also something Putin apparently was aware of from the very beginning. And now, that realization is starting to spread to Europe's own countries, which - while the new cold war was only one of rhetoric were perfectly happy to go for the ride - but now that trade war has finally broken out, suddenly increasingly more want out. read more

Outwardly, they put on a show of unity -- but privately, the Obamas and Clintons, the two power couples of the Democrat Party, loathe each other. "I hate that man Obama more than any man I've ever met, more than any man who ever lived," Bill Clinton said to friends on one occasion, adding he would never forgive Obama for suggesting he was a racist during the 2008 campaign. The feeling is mutual. Obama made ­excuses not to talk to Bill, while the first lady privately sniped about Hillary.On most evenings, Michelle Obama and her trusted adviser, Valerie Jarrett, met in a quiet corner of the White House residence. They'd usually open a bottle of Chardonnay, catch up on news about Sasha and Malia, and gossip about people who gave them heartburn.Their favorite bête noire was Hillary Clinton, whom they nicknamed "Hildebeest," after the menacing and shaggy-maned gnu that roams the Serengeti. read more

As Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski has written, prosecutorial misconduct has become "an epidemic." And evidence has come to light that our president, the nation's chief law enforcement official, seeks his counsel from the worst. f ever a picture was worth a thousand words, it is a recently released White House photo of President Obama and his muses -- if one only knew the truth behind those muses whispering in the President's ear as they strategized in the aftermath of the Benghazi tragedy. To understand the (politely-put) "lack of transparency" from the White House, the enormous politicization of the Department of Justice, the release of Taliban leaders from Guantanamo, refusal to cooperate with congressional investigations, the IRS's harassment of political opponents, and the cover-up of Benghazi, read on.

Ukrain is a sovereign nation and has a right to chart whatever course they desire for themselves. Putin is paranoid, his country is in no danger of being attacked much less invaded. His interests are strategic, they are nationalistic and economic.

What a laughable comment. Let's see----of course Ukraine is a sovereign nation----then you agree we should have never meddled in their affairs. Of course, it's okay if we do but not Putin. Secondly, Putin is not paranoid. History has shown that after Reagan and Baker promised Gorbachev that NATO wouldn't expand 1 inch eastward if he agreed to reunification of Germony, we over the years broke that promise and have expanded NATO aggressively eastward. Thirdly, of course his intersts are strategic, nationalistic and economic----does that imply you're stating that's in contra-distinction to the U.S. where our interests haven't been "strategic, nationalistic, and economic over the last 80+ years. Who has more military spread throughout the world then the U.S.? Who has the reserve currency of the world and will militarily and economically enforce their will on any country that threatens that reserve currency? Now, let's see----how many countries does the Russian military inhabit outside their sphere of local influence. Does Russia have the reserve currency of the world and impose their economic will on anyone that threatens to expand themselves economically at their expense.

Danni, you're neocon skirt is showing and it's so easy to take apart your positions. Your position is on sand.

It's interesting that Obama was ever elected POTUS. He had no background or resume to even be a senator. However, most of the electorate voted him in because they were upset with Bush, he had the right skin color (and certain folks like to appear to be progressive along with overwhelming black voters----what did MLK say?), McCain wasn't a viable alternative, and the background of his youth was dismissed. Now we have a domestic and global mess. Obama is missing in action a good part of his presidency and he appears to be a puppet of the elite and powerful. A good number of the electorate along with even the erstwhile black electorate are wondering Wha Happened? In fact, Obama has armed the metropolitan and even small town police departments with military hardware cast-offs. A reasonable person would sit and ponder why. I would opine that the rioting in Ferguson is only a trial balloon of what to expect in the future. Europe is economically heading south again and it's beyond me why they'll listen to the U.S. any longer since placing sanctions on Russia is like cutting your own throats. China's economy is hanging by a thread and ours looks better then it is due to constant prevarication by the government. It's only a matter of time when our economy will implode again due to debt that will ultimately strangle what little growth there is. The global elite and banksters continue to pull the strings attempting to keep their global plan intact as it slowly slips through their greasy paws. The coming implosion will force a new world order and the U.S. and global thugs will no longer be able to force their will on the rest of humanity.

May God wrap is arms around Robin, R.I.P.
Hope in Heaven he is no longer in pain.
The Angels receive a talented friend.

Does Robin Williams because he is famous get a pass on the sin of suicide?

First of all; as far as I'm concerned, people making these kinds of comments make them because they don't have anything else to say. They're just space fillers. Maybe they think it allows them to appear to be particularly caring, loving and noble beings. I don't have a clue whether suicide is a "mortal" sin or not. Everyone walking the planet falls short of perfection every day. One sin is no greater then another sin according to scripture except for blasphemy and walking away from the holy spirit once accepted. Robin Williams was a talented individual and that may be possible because he was not just depressive but a manic depressive. He was a miserable human being that couldn't cope with the fact that there's more to life then material wealth and your career; two things that are too glorified in our society and not worth becoming depressed over. I would say the placement of wealth, materialism, and the importance of career on the idol pedestal are a greater sin then taking your life when you've lost the self control of your mind functioning in a rational thought process----Williams was in a dark place where he could not consciously find any legitimate path out of. I'm would hope the loving God we believe we know will not hold him accountable for that particular act after which there is no possibility of asking forgiveness. More likely then not he will hold Williams and us accountable more for decisions made when we are of sound mind and body.
