Wednesday Reads: Quality PortraitsPosted: July 11, 2018

Well, Johnson wasn’t one of the two senators who voted against the support of NATO, so there is that…
Lawmakers on Tuesday overwhelmingly voted in favor of a motion supporting NATO, as President Trump continues to criticize the alliance ahead of his summit in Europe.
The nonbinding motion, which came as the Senate voted to reconcile its version of the annual defense policy bill with that of the House, expresses the Senate’s support for NATO and calls on negotiators to reaffirm the U.S. commitment to it.
The 97-2 vote in the Senate comes as Trump heads to Brussels. He will also travel to the United Kingdom and meet one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki during his trip.

Benczkowski “previously represented Alfa Bank, one of Russia’s largest financial institutions, whose owners have ties to President Vladimir V. Putin.”

Feinstein is also calling attention to this matter:
It looks like Benczkowski is going to be comfirmed anyway:
Fucking Manchin. I wonder what the Russians have on him…for his continued support of tRump? Must be a boy in his “golden showered” past….because if it was just a woman, in this climate today…where a president can payoff porn stars without any negative affects, an affair with a woman is just no big deal.

Oh, one more thing:
I can’t take anymore, here are the cartoons.
