President Donald Trump accepted the assessment of the U.S. intelligence community that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election and said he misspoke during his Monday press conference with President Vladimir Putin.
Still it was fun watching the mass outbreak of TDS.
Yes, you did. Writing it I assumed people’s heads would explode. It’s about as far as you can can get from today’s conventional wisdom (i.e. what David Gergen thinks). Virtually every member of the smart set from Pelosi to McCain to some ninety-five percent of the media, including several cowards on Fox News, to, alas, Lindsey Graham (who should know better) are going out of their minds excoriating Trump for being soft on Putin, even for being “owned” by the neo-Soviet strongman. John Brennan — once a communist himself, so he should know — accused Trump of treason.
President Trump offended the entire political spectrum with a tweet this morning blaming the U.S. for poor relations with Russia. “Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity,” the president said, and he is entirely correct. By this I do not mean to say that Russia is a beneficent actor in world affairs or that President Putin is an admirable world leader. Nonetheless, the president displayed both perspicacity and political courage when he pointed the finger at the United States for mismanaging the relationship with Russia.
Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin shook hands ahead of the crunch talks in Finland.
Talking briefly to the media ahead of a private conversation inside the Finnish Presidential Palace, the US President hoped for an “extraordinary relationship” between America and Russia having earlier claimed relationships have “never been worse”.
Before the show of mutual respect, the US President congratulated his Russian counterpart on the success of the FIFA World Cup and said: “The world wants to see us getting along – we’re two great nuclear powers.

President Donald Trump responded Saturday to a series of indictments, made against Russian hackers as part of Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation, by laying the blame squarely at the feet of former President Barack Obama.
Later they kissed and made up. But before that, at that NATO summit in Brussels, President Trump let them know who’s boss.
No more rolling over…and while he was respectful to the Queen, and contrary to the habits of his predecessor, he did not bow.
He focused on Angela Merkel, since she represents them all. He schooled her for double-dealing – that pipeline to Russia that puts Germany at the mercy of Putin who can turn off the energy spigot any time he wants, and then who ya gonna call? The United States, of course, which will have to come to the rescue, as usual.
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization was conceived as a mutual defense pact against possible Soviet aggression in Europe following WWII, and the U.S., under President Harry Truman’s initiative, became one of the original twelve members in 1949. The unwillingness of the USSR to withdraw from various Eastern European countries at the end of WWII (which countries were then referred to by Winston Churchill as “behind the Iron Curtain”) gave considerable credibility to the idea that a mutual defense pact was needed in Europe. Such a pact would only make sense with U.S. membership since our infrastructure and economy had not been devastated by the War, and in fact in many ways had flourished
LONDON (Reuters) – Sam Brownback, the U.S. Ambassador for International Religious Freedom, complained to the British ambassador in Washington D.C. about the treatment of an English right-wing activist who is in jail for disrupting a trial, according to three sources familiar with the discussion.

Justin will likely be directed to offer citizenship to the Muslims who shiv Tommy.
President Donald Trump has warned Britain that it is ‘losing its culture’ by allowing ‘millions and millions’ of people to move to the continent.
He said that mass migration has changed Europe in a negative way – and that without quick action, it will never be the same again.
It comes after the continent’s migration crisis has made headlines yet again this year as hundreds of thousands of people – mostly from Africa and the Middle East – make dangerous journeys to reach Europe illegally.
Donald Trump has said that the United States’ commitment to Nato “remains very strong”, after member countries agreed to his demands to increase funding for defence.
Mr Trump refused to deny that he had threatened to pull the US out of the organisation, and said the atmosphere in the meeting was “a little tough for a little while,” but cordial after the spending commitments went up “like a rocket ship”.
Despite this Justin will still give our money to unaccountable 3rd world crap holes.
RIGA, LATVIA—Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he will not double Canada’s defence budget, despite continued calls from U.S. President Donald Trump for all NATO countries to meet agreed-upon targets for defence spending.
Trudeau calls the military spending target — two per cent of GDP, agreed to by all NATO allies at the 2014 summit in Wales — “an easy shorthand” but a “limited tool” to measure a country’s commitment to the alliance.
As he drives along a rural Ohio road where cell phone service can be spotty, Rylee Cupp, 21, reflects on how he overcame reservations about Donald Trump to emerge as a strong supporter of the president.
“Looking now, after everything I see that Trump has done,” he says, “and the positives that have happened to the country, with the booming economy, a great pick for the Supreme Court, and of course now, denuclearization talks with North Korea, I can confidently say that I would happily vote for Donald Trump in 2020.”
After Trump’s surprise win in the 2016 presidential election, disaffected, middle-aged, working-class white men were credited with one of the biggest political upsets in American presidential politics.
