FBI to investigate Russian Interference in 2016

  "With respect to the president's tweets about alleged wiretapping directed at him by the prior administration, I have no information that supports those tweets."

100 Days of Resistance - Day 5 "Take Their Oil"

This kind of rhetoric, along with the recent executive orders banning all Syrian refugees and barring entry to anyone from seven Muslim majority nations from entering our country even as a tourist, play directly into ISIS’ hands.

I haven’t seen the movie. I’m not going to. But I have seen both trailers twice, and I read most of the Wikipedia synopsis, which is all I need to denounce this congregation of moving images as a blight on humanity. If you haven’t seen the trailers, nor read most of the Wikipedia synopsis, worry not. I’ll save you the trouble.

Obama Sanctions Putin + Trump Tweets | News Bites 12.29.16

Here's the Newsbites for this week. Obama punishes Russia for interfering with the U.S. election. Trump tweets again. And we're starting to not fall for it.

...BUT THEY WORK FOR EXXON TOO.

Poor, Mitt Romney, for a while, it looked he'd be one of Trump’s few moderate republicans to join his cabinet as Secretary of State. But.. Trump decided to go with, former CEO of Exxon, Rex Tillerson.

Pundits and outlets alike are echoing the praises of former Secretaries of State, Condoleeza Rice, Jim Baker and Bob Gates for the nomination. However, Rice and Gates also run Rice Hadley Gates, a consulting firm that currently advises ExxonMobil in foreign affairs. Jim Baker runs Baker Botts LLP, a law firm which also works for ExxonMobil, as well as advises Gazprom, the Russian state gas company.

Here’s what where we should pay attention. The US placed sanctions on Russia, for its invasion of Crimea in Ukraine, and that halted ExxonMobil’s activities in Russia. Plus, there may be even more harsh measures put in place because of Russia’s active support of the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

By now, I guess you’re seeing the big picture. One of the few positions with the authority to remove those pesky sanctions stopping ExxonMobil’s business with Russia is.. *Drum Roll* Secretary of State.
