The GOP Emboldened Barack Obama on Cuba

The Russians worked hard for this disaster, let them enjoy it

Russia is having as much fun as it can stand and it couldn’t happen to a nicer fascist kleptocracy. As it stands today the ruble is in a virtual freefall. And unlike the limited sanctions imposed by the West after Russia’s Ron-Paul sanctioned stripping of Crimea from Ukraine and its slow motion invasion of that nation, this is hitting the average Russian in a significant | Read More »

RT @thinkprogress: Greenpeace may have permanently damaged an ancient, sacred site. Now what? — Dan McLaughlin (@baseballcrank) December 17, 2014 The article, for those who don’t want to read even a sick-to-its-stomach TP | Read More »
