President Barack Obama came into office in 2009 promising a new era of unprecedented transparency in his administration. But when he leaves office, reporters may remember him for an effort that has largely turned out to be the opposite -- and for being what one affected reporter has called the "greatest enemy to press freedom in a generation." read more

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


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.
