Jonah Goldberg, neither a friend nor an enemy of Trump, thinks so too. Having looked at the facts, he writes: Barack Obama sold out our Eastern European allies on missile defense. He slow'walked aid to Ukraine and did little more than shrug when Crimea was annexed. He said “never mind” on his own “red line” in Syria and turned a blind eye to Putin’s intervention there, in large part because of his Meet the Olympic Athletes Who Probably Don´t Belong There Wed, 21 28 2018 04:28:49 GMT 337b06b1ff3f9aa5189dab870cb20211de531a03 PJ Media, by Chris Queen Posted By: Hazymac- Wed, 21 28 2018 04:28:49 GMT The history of the modern Olympic games is littered with stories of dreamers. These athletes work hard, sometimes in obscurity, training long hours for that moment of glory as the world watches. Sometimes those moments end in medals, but obviously the vast majority don´t make it to the podium. And some of the athletes who finish nowhere near the gold have the most fascinating stories. And these unbelievable Olympians have done what they´ve done without the left'leaning politics that seem to have permeated these games. Meet German Madrazo.

And Romney is going there on a mission: to bring “Utah’s values” to the nation’s capital, he explained in a video last Friday kicking off his campaign to replace the retiring Orrin Hatch in the U.S. Senate. A Senate campaign launched from Utah is neither the starting point, nor the D.C. destination that Romney had long envisioned. A decade ago, the former governor of Massachusetts had hoped to make a trek to the White House south from Boston, where he built his sizable fortune and national profile.

The bill (HB 219), which would ban the sale and possession of semi'automatic weapons and high'capacity magazines like the kind used by confessed killer Nikolas Cruz, has been mired in a House subcommittee for months and has not been heard. Amid rising tensions at the state Capitol, Democrats used a highly unusual procedure to move the proposal directly to the House floor for a debate and vote.

That´s the conclusion many are reaching in the wake of the indictments recently handed out by Special Counsel Robert Mueller against 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities who allegedly enacted a sophisticated plot to wage “information warfare” against the United States. Marat Mindiyarov, a former commenter at the Internet Research Agency, says the organization´s Facebook department hired people with excellent English skills to sway U.S. public opinion through an elaborate social media campaign. His own experience at the agency makes him trust the U.S. indictment, Mindiyarov told The Associated Press. Hypocrisy, Inc.

NBC News´ Kristen Welker and ABC News´ Jonathan Karl pressed Sanders on President Donald Trump´s perceived silence on Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
