Obama Slaps Hillary

President Barack Obama’s last press conference was a success, but only if you consider journalistic incompetence worthy of praise.

During the one-hour affair, Obama answered questions ranging from the commutation of whistleblower Chelsea Manning’s sentence to personal queries concerning his and First Lady Michelle Obama’s approach when talking to their daughters about the 2016 election — not quite a hard-hitting last inquiry for an outgoing president who, as the Los Angeles Times recently noted, managed to keep U.S. military forces “at war for all eight years of [his] tenure.”

A Balanced Assessment Of Obama

Russian foreign minister says Trump and Putin see eye-to-eye on foreign affairs because they both want to defeat ISIS and avoid 'interfering in other countries' 

President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin see eye to eye when it comes to many foreign policy goals, Russia's foreign minister said today.

Sergey Lavrov was speaking at a news conference with his Hungarian counterpart Peter Szijjarto.

'We have been following the situation in the US,' Lavrov said. 'We can see that many of the major foreign policy issues that Donald Trump has mentioned overlap with what President Putin has been saying about Russia's foreign policy priorities.

'Donald Trump seems to focus on advancing the United States' core interests rather than promoting various ideas and interfering in other countries' internal affairs. This is actually the essence of Russia's foreign policy.'

Watching major media commit suicide

If Robert F Kennedy Jr is, indeed, given the green light by President Trump to investigate vaccine safety, he’s going to need a truck and a chain and DOJ threats of prosecution to drag key CDC scientists into the light and elicit specific statements from them.

Even then, the odds are these scientists will keep repeating the party line: vaccines are overwhelmingly safe; they have no connection to autism or other neurological damage; the science is settled.

Kennedy could run up against an organized wall of silence—scientists refusing to speak with him, on the basis that he isn’t qualified to make judgements in their “field.”
