Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (NH) may be a member of the both the Senate’s Armed Services Committee and also the Foreign Relations Committee, but I’m getting the distinct impression that she’s not only behind the power curve, she’s also none-too bright.
As reported by London’s The Daily Mail, Professor Mike Pompeo had to convene a seminar on current affairs specifically for the Granite State lawmaker;
Responding to a complaint from Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen today that the Trump administration has not done enough to deter Russia – she pointed out that it had not enacted a slew of congressionally-approved sanctions – Pompeo agreed.
‘I readily concede that Vladimir Putin has not yet received the message sufficiently,’ he said. ‘And we need to continue to work at that.’
Continuing, Pompeo said that Trump has been tough on Russia.
‘It hasn’t just been sanctions, the largest expulsion of 60 folks was from this administration. This administration announced a nuclear posture review that has put Russia on notice that we are going to recapitalize our deterrent force.
‘In Syria, now, a handful of weeks ago, the Russians met their match. A couple hundred Russians were killed,’ Pompeo revealed. ‘The list of actions that this administration has taken, I’m happy to walk through each of them, but I don’t want to take up more time. The list is pretty long, ma’am.’

In the polite world of diplomatic-speak, there is “no ill will” in a Donald Trump ordered directive that each and every Barack Obama politically appointed ambassador leave his or her post no later than Inauguration Day.
While many in the federal government normally decry any formal recognition of any religious personage for fear of giving an air of official acceptance, the founder of Islam apparently gets a pass. In two quite divergent reports, descriptions of the Islamic Day of Ashura commemoration very well could explain why the American Department of State issued an official security warning for US citizens in the Persian Gulf region.

As the bumper sticker says: “Ready for Hillary” – Her now headline grabbing email scandal laid dormant for two years. Only time will tell if this buried-at-the-time scandal will pick up traction with the public.
The right-of-center news portal Town Hall is citing on June 11, 2013, multiple news sources exposing that during her tenure as the U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton’s time at the helm was marred by various sex scandals so vast, one was described as “endemic.”
