‘The Russians are laughing all the way to the bank’: Conservative nails why Kremlin installed ‘unhinged’ Trump

Published

on

As Americans react to the the slow and steady revelations about President Donald Trump’s potential collusion with Russia, one question remains — what does Russia think about all of it?

“How does someone like Russia react to this constant drip, drip, drip of investigation drama,” MSNBC’s Katy Tur asked her assembled panel on Tuesday’s episode of “Meet the Press.”

“I think they’re delighted,” Danielle Pletka of the conservative American Enterprise Institute think tank responded.

Though they’re thrilled when “someone like Trump” wins elections they meddle in, Pletka argued that he wasn’t their endgame in the U.S. or other places like Eastern Europe and France.

“Russia’s main game is not to try on put somebody in power,” she said. “Their main game is destabilizing…causing us to us question our very system, to question the foundations of democratic governance.”

While “the Russians are laughing all the way to the bank,” Pletka concluded, America’s allies worry Trump is “distracted” or “that he’s gonna do something unhinged.”

I thought Democrats were making a giant mistake on impeachment — but these experts changed my mind

On Tuesday, Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives announced that they would move forward with two articles of impeachment — involving abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — against President Donald Trump.

At first, I shared the frustration of many liberals and progressives that these articles are too limited in scope, and leave a great many of Trump’s apparent misdeeds unmentioned. But further reflection and exchanges with legal experts have convinced me that appearance is misleading. In fact, Democrats have performed a deft feat. In a single stroke — OK, two strokes — they have elevated the process of holding Trump accountable above the realm of partisan politics, and have also given the Democratic nominee (whoever that is) an excellent case to use against Trump in next year’s presidential election. The challenge for Democrats going forward will be to keep that nonpartisan outlook in mind — while understanding that, ultimately and unfortunately, the only possible way to hold Trump accountable will be through partisan politics.

Published

Climate activist Greta Thunberg has been named Time Magazine's Person of the Year -- and Trump supporters are deeply unhappy about it.

Thunberg, whose advocacy for real action on climate change has drawn rebukes from conservative political figures including President Donald Trump and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, was described by Time in its profile as delivering "a simple truth in a fateful moment" in the debate over how to reduce greenhouse emissions and prevent catastrophic environmental damage.

The ‘War on Christmas’ was started more than 500 years ago — by Christians

Published

on

If it feels like the “War on Christmas” is getting really old, it is. Almost 15 years have passed since Bill O’Reilly first opened December with a segment called, “Christmas Under Siege”—ten long years in which his cadences and refrains and echoing chorus have become as familiar to most Americans as Handel’s Messiah. More familiar, in fact.

Not that O’Reilly invented the idea. During the 1920’s, Henry Ford’s newspaper published a series of anti-Semitic articles titled, “The International Jew: The World’s Foremost Problem.” Among the complaints:
