Sen. Ted Cruz writes in POLITICO Magazine: I was standing behind the chief justice of the United States and sitting right next to him was the court’s first female justice, Sandra Day O’Connor. We were in front of a large computer screen gazing at explicit, hard-core pornography. As we examined the screen before us, I remember very distinctly what the 65-year-old O’Connor said.

Nathan Smith, who styles himself the “foreign minister” for the Texas Nationalist Movement, appeared last Spring at a far-right confab in St. Petersburg, Russia. Despite roaming around in his cowboy hat, Smith managed to keep a low-key presence at the conference, which was dominated by fascists and neo-Nazis railing against Western decadence. But at least one Russian newspaper, Vzglyad, caught up with the American, noted that TNM is “hardly a marginal group,”and quoted Smith liberally on the excellent prospects for a partial breakup of the United States. Smith declared that the Texas National Movement has 250,000 supporters—including all the Texans currently serving in the U.S. Army—and they all “identify themselves first and foremost as Texans” but are being forced to remain Americans.  The United States, he added, “is not a democracy, but a dictatorship.”  The Kremlin’s famed troll farms took the interview and ran with it, with dozens of bots instantly tweeting about a “Free Texas.”

For Russians, this was delicious payback. Since the breakup of the Soviet Union two decades ago, many Russians have come to blame the United States for their plight; a seething resentment over U.S. culpability in the loss of Russian national power is one of the reasons Vladimir Putin is so popular. It has only worsened since the United States has led an international effort to isolate and sanction Moscow over its annexation of Crimea and incursions into eastern Ukraine. Thus, over the past 15 months there has been a sudden, bizarro uptick of Russian interest in and around the American Southwest, most notably Texas, where secessionist sentiment never seems to entirely die out (TNM’s predecessor group, the “Republic of Texas,” disbanded after secessionist militants took hostages in 1997). In a rehash of the Soviet Union’s fate, numerous Russian voices have taken to envisioning an American break-up, E Pluribus Unum in inverse—out of one, many.

+David Duncan​ Your lousy Gazprom is only good for your rich oligarchs and high rank kgb officers to buy European football clubs, huge pleasure boats and mansions on the french and italian Riviera.

They even buy properties in Florida your damn loved state crooks. 

Whatever Turkey buys. They didn't buy the Russian system yet. But if they ever do it will be analyzed by top NATO scientists. It's like buying your Russian military secrets.

You see for the Russian rulers it's all about the money.

After weeks of silence, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi spoke on the House floor Friday against legislation to give President Barack Obama fast-track trade authority and a related bill to provide aid to workers displaced by trade.

“We have an opportunity to slow down,” the California Democrat said. “Whatever the deal is with other countries, we want a better deal for America’s workers.”

Russia fired back at the Justice Department’s announcement of 47 charges against officials of FIFA, soccer’s world governing body, with its foreign ministry condemning it as another case of illegal extraterritorial application of U.S. laws.

“Once again, we urge Washington to stop trying to judge far beyond its borders for its legal standards and follow the generally accepted international legal procedures,” Russian ministry spokesman A.K. Lukashevich said in a statement Wednesday, according to an English translation.

Russia 'fires back' at USA? Putin is so much a coward, he wastes the lives of young men for his glory, but fears for his won life. He will never be within 100 km of live fire!

Yeah, don't let that pesky toxic waste being dumped into the air get in the way of the billions in profits of big energy. They might have to cut back on the number of Gulf Stream jets they buy their pet dog.

When President Barack Obama first began negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran, he was encouraged by the existence of an obscure religious ruling from the country’s supreme leader: In a fatwa, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declared that developing or using nuclear weapons is against Islam.

Unmarried Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham says that if he becomes president, he will have a “rotating first lady.”

“Well, I’ve got a sister. She could play that role if necessary,” the 59-year-old South Carolinian presidential hopeful told Daily Mail Online in an interview published Tuesday. “I’ve got a lot of friends. We’ll have a rotating first lady,” he added.

Americans should be allowed to carry guns wherever they please, including in schools, actor Vince Vaughn said in a recent interview with the British edition of GQ Magazine.

“Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat. Taking away guns, taking away drugs, the booze, it won’t rid the world of criminality,” said the star of the second season of “True Detective,” according to excerpts of the cover story published Monday.

In the U.S., of course, the idea of paying elected officials like corporate CEOs is politically unthinkable. When Virginia Rep. Jim Moran complained last year that members of Congress were so underpaid they “can’t even afford to live decently in Washington,” he was swiftly kicked around by the media (congressmen make $174,000). Higher salaries are an easy target for the anti-government crowd, and just generally run counter to our national “of the people” ethos.

But wait: What if higher salaries actually made politicians more eager to represent their constituents’ interests? That’s exactly what Renee Bowen, an economist at Stanford, and Cecilia Mo, a political scientist at Vanderbilt, found. In a recently released working paper, they suggest Americans might be better off if we were willing to raise legislators’ salaries – sometimes considerably. The study, “The Voter’s Blunt Tool,” uses a game-theory model to argue that when elected representatives are paid more, they’re more invested in keeping their jobs, and more likely to pursue citizen-friendly policies.
