According to the Wall Street Journal, Mnuchin complained to the audience that he usually only talks to "people who wanna listen to me speak" after students and others attending the event yelled out "I think you're full of ---" and denounced the Republican tax bill as an attack on "people who are in poverty." read more

Florida Senator Marco Rubio promotes regime change in Venezuela, "if they decide to protect the people & restore democracy by removing a dictator." Venezuela jut happens to have the largest oil reserves of any country on the planet. But the Organization of American States has been negotiating for two years, with representatives of Venezuela's government and right-wing opposition parties, meeting in the Dominican Republic, and had reached an agreement. It called for "rejection of foreign intervention," electoral guarantees, common defense against economic sanctions, an "end of economic warfare", and a date for the upcoming presidential election.

The United States has about 800 foreign military bases in about 70 countries; and many encircling Russian in the countries now liberated from the former U.S.S.R. From the Russian perspective, Hillary Clinton as US president was most likely to start covert and overt military actions against Russian interests, a.k.a. war with Syria. That same Russian estimation of potential American foreign policies under either a President Donald Trump or President Bernie Sanders would rate the likelihood of anti-Russian (and anti-Syrian) warlike activity by the U.S. as significantly lower. So, naturally they would prefer Trump or Bernie as the US president after 2016. read more

Current and former senior officials, from DOJ, FBI, CIA and NSA, whom documents and testimony show were involved in providing faulty information to justify a FISA warrant to monitor former Trump campaign official Carter Page. The knives will be coming out. DNC and Deep State will marginalize Nunes. Those who find themselves in jeopardy can be expected to push back strongly. There hasn't been a showdown like this since Senator Frank Church ran tough, explosive hearings on the abuses of a previous generation deep state, including massive domestic spying revealed by quintessential investigative reporter Seymour Hersh in 1974. This was why the congressional intelligence oversight committees were later established, and why the FISA law was passed in 1978. read more
