1. There's no evidence of Trump's accusation that Obama tapped his phones YET!
2. The FBI is investigating connections between President Trump's campaign associates and the Russian government, but they did it with out surveillance or wiretaps!
3. But the FBI is going to be VERY tight-lipped about the investigation.
4. Democrats seem pretty sure associates with Trump's campaign colluded with Aliens.
5. Republicans, meanwhile, want to focus on intelligence leaks to the press BY Terrorist Liberal Democrat Traitors!
6. Intelligence officials still don't think there's any evidence Russia's meddling directly influenced votes in any way or form!

Last Obama Budget Goes for Broke on Nuclear Weapons
by Kingston Reif on February 9, 2016
Consider the following facts. The United States is planning to rebuild all three legs of the nuclear triad and their associated warheads at a cost and on a schedule that many military leaders say is unsustainable. In addition, these plans would leave the United States with a larger deployed strategic nuclear arsenal than President Barack Obama has said is needed for U.S. security.
Unfortunately, the president’s final budget request released today is divorced from reality. The Fiscal Year 2017 proposal contains significant increases for several Defense and Energy department nuclear weapons systems pursuant to the Obama administration’s redundant, all-of-the-above approach to remodeling the arsenal. (See chart). The request does not make significant changes to the planned development timelines for these programs.
The president missed one of his last opportunities to make common sense adjustments to the current nuclear weapons spending trajectory.
According to a Congressional Budget Office report in January 2015, the direct costs of the administration's plans for nuclear forces will total about $350 billion between fiscal 2015 and fiscal 2024. Over the next 30 years, the bill could add up to $1 trillion, according to three separate independent estimates.
Though the president and his military advisers have determined that the deployed strategic nuclear arsenal can be reduced by up to one-third below the 2010 New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START) levels of 1,550 deployed strategic warheads and 700 deployed strategic delivery systems, the proposed spending is based on maintaining the New START levels in perpetuity... https://www.armscontrol.org/blog/ArmsCon...ar-Weapons

While some conservative groups may wait years for tax-exempt status, the IRS swiftly gave approval for a Satanic cult that sponsored an "After School Satan Club," according to records obtained by a watchdog group.

RE: Comey confirms F.B.I. Investigation into Russian Election Interference
"It's terrifying. We are seeing in America these terrible rallies occurring where the people are becoming violent. Now, democracy should be robust, but it certainly shouldn't be violent. And I think the Donald Trump phenomenon is a real problem for the United States — it's making their democracy look kind of weird." — Christopher Pyne, an Australian government minister, in comments reported March 17. http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/p...nl53l.html
"Whether Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen or Geert Wilders — all these right-wing populists are not only a threat to peace and social cohesion, but also to economic development." — German Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel, in an interview published March 6. http://www.smh.com.au/world/us-election/...nc10z.html
"The fact is, Cape Breton is lovely all times of the year and if people do want to make choices that perhaps suit their lifestyles better, Canada is always welcoming and opening." — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, on March 7, regarding the possibility of Americans fleeing to his country if Trump wins. http://m.huffpost.com/ca/entry/9402760
"Saying the U.S. will no longer engage in anything that is a burden in terms of its relationships with allies, it would be almost like abandoning those alliances ... It will inevitably give rise to anti-American sentiment worldwide." — Former South Korean Vice Foreign Minister Kim Sung-han, in quotes published April 29, on Trump's isolationist leanings. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-el...SKCN0XO10R
"What needs to be pointed out is that the essence of Sino-US trade and business cooperation is mutually beneficial and win-win, and accords with the interests of both sides. We hope people in all fields can rationally and objectively view this relationship." — Hong Lei, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman at the time, on May 4. He declined to comment directly on the 2016 race. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-06-19/wh...mp/7521652
“For the life of me, I cannot believe that a country like the United States can afford to have someone as president who simply says, ‘These people are not going to be allowed to come to the United States." — Saudi Prince Turki al-Faisal, a former ambassador to the United States, on May 5, regarding Trump's proposed Muslim ban. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/prin...e9f090e769
You are a disgrace not only to the GOP but to all America.
"In the presidential elections, there are arguments whether the United States is going for the isolationist stance. I don't want to see that kind of United States. I want to see the United States to be strong and come with a strong robust position, not really thinking of the United States only." — Kenichiro Sasae, Japan's ambassador to the U.S., on May 6. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-el...SKCN0XX1JD
“Today in the 21st century, here in the United States, a climate of intolerance is sending a similar message: Mexicans go home. Separate those who are different, blame the minorities, demonize the stranger.” — Claudia Ruiz Massieu, Mexico's foreign minister, on June 6, in a speech that made reference to the struggles of the Jewish community. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/nat...story.html
Former Mexican president Felipe Calderón, not surprisingly, said the country wouldn't "pay any single cent for such a stupid wall." He also called Trump a "not very well informed man...If this guy pretends that closing the borders to anywhere either for trade [or] for people is going to provide prosperity to the United State, he is completely crazy.” http://www.cnbc.com/2016/02/08/mexico-wo...-wall.html
"His excesses end up giving a retching feeling, even in the US, especially when — as was Donald Trump's case — he speaks ill of a soldier, of the memory of a soldier...." If Trump wins, "there will be consequences because the American election is a global election ... Democracy is also a major issue considering the authoritarian temptation that we see arising." — French President Francois Hollande, on Aug. 2. http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/03/politics/d...-hollande/
"America has lost now. I've realigned myself in your ideological flow. And maybe I will also go to Russia to talk to Putin and tell him that there are three of us against the world: China, Philippines and Russia. It's the only way." — Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, on Oct. 20, during a session with business leaders in China. U.S. officials at this point believe he's more bluster than a real threat to the U.S.-Philippines partnership. http://www.cnn.com/2016/10/20/asia/china...rte-visit/
"I think his remarks are divisive, stupid and wrong," Cameron said, though he opposed the petition to have Trump banned from Britain. "I think if he came to visit our country he'd unite us all against him." http://www.cbsnews.com/news/david-camero...pid-wrong/
“Let's be clear, Donald Trump is an idiot. I have tried to find different, perhaps more parliamentary adjectives to describe him, but none was clear enough. He is an idiot," said MP Gavin Newlands of the Scottish National Party. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worl...ald-trump/
“A successful politician would not make such statement, as there are millions of Muslims living in the U.S,” Erdoğan said. “I don’t know whether or not he’ll win, but let’s suppose he won. What will happen? Will he set aside all relationships with Muslim countries? A politician shouldn’t talk like this.” http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/trump-n...sCatID=358
“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian,” Francis said. Trump responded the very same day.
“For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful,” he said, then warned that ISIS was eager to attack the Vatican. “If and when the Vatican is attacked, the Pope would only wish and have prayed that Donald Trump would have been elected president,” the candidate said. http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/...ico-border
In France, President François Hollande said Trump’s “excesses make you want to retch” after the American president-to-be went after the parents of Humayun Khan, a Muslim-American soldier who died in the Iraq war. A few months later, after Election Day, Holland said American voters had opened “a period of uncertainty.” http://thehill.com/policy/international/...t-to-retch
Yet somehow Russia, Russia, Russia, overrode the billions of $$$ in ads, the mass media leaning in heavily for Hillary, the Hollywood heavy weights putting their name recognition in national ads, Silicon Valley and Wall Street moguls warning of financial meltdowns... all this weight being thrown against him and between Russia Today News, and about 50% of Fox news doing Putin's bidding pulled off the coup of the century...
on election night... hillary was winning... no cries about Russia influence...
☯ On occasion I sit on the edge of the universe, to watch new space expand as stardust shining in the light, with thin threads of blue flowing out like rivers giving birth to new life. ☯
