It's really on now. Sen. Marco Rubio really hates Russia's Vlad Putin.

Russia's Putin may have just dished out a little payback against one of his congressional nemesis, Sen. Marco Rubio.

After hacking into and meddling in the 2016 presidential elections, the threat that Russia possess against the U.S. is very real, and Senator Marco Rubio is all too eager to point to the lengths Putin will go to compromise federally elected officials.

Rubio hasn’t been hacked, but according to him, Putin has launched a “disinformation campaign” against him by posting a “fake” image of a tweet Rubio supposedly sent out. READ MORE

ICYMI--- THIS HAS STILL GOT DEMOCRATS TIED UP IN A BUNCH >>>"Trump’s “oppo” research remark stokes talk of impeachment." by HISPOLITICA

Democrats like Rep. Omar Ilhan are besides themselves over President Trump’s recent remarks that he would “take” “oppo” research or information about potential political opponents from possible Russia or China, which has now fueled their call for his impeachment.

In listening to the Oval Office interview between President Trump and ABC News Chief George Stephanopoulos, the president said that he would do what every congressman would do, and at least “hear” the opposition research being offered to him.



With all the talk of "reparations" over slavery, and elected officials chiming in on the issue, Fmr. VP Joe Biden wants Americans to "double down" their efforts to "root out systemic racism." After all, the country is remembering Juneteenth.

Joe Biden >>> "As we recognize Juneteenth and the progress we’ve made since slavery, we must also double down on our efforts to root out systemic racism. We have to make sure we’re working to move closer to that more perfect union, to the idea of America that has inspired so many generations."


Kamala Harris is pushing her black heritage, and it's not even Black History month.

Pete Buttigieg 's skin is whiter than the wind driven snow, that doesn't stop him from jumping on the trending racial bandwagon. Why not?

"We must remember those lost at the Emanuel AME Church, but we must also recommit ourselves to policies to end the scourge of white supremacist terrorism. Each of us is responsible for helping our country along the path towards justice, equality, and compassion. #Emanuel9"

Roberto "Beto" O'Rourke penned an op-ed in the USA Today about slavery >>> 154 years after Juneteenth, the work is still unfinished. The march continues. The fight for justice, equity, and full civil rights goes on

Elizabeth Warren or "Pocahontas" as Trump calls her, also paid tribute to Juneteenth >>>

"On #Juneteenth, we remember that our country still hasn’t made enough progress toward racial equality & justice. Voter suppression. Mass incarceration. Decades of govt discrimination to keep Black families from building wealth. We can, & must, do better."

A showdown with Iran could be imminent, but this could just be a show of force. Sanctions against Iran's money interests and institutions will probably be the way to go for Trump.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) took part in her 10th congressional softball game against the "Bad News (Fake News) Babes" in an effort to continue raising cash for breast cancer research. "DWS' and friends did lose to the news corp by a score of 10-3, but in the end, the fight against cancer was the real loser.

Rep. Brian Mast (R) is announcing that water in his congressional district is a lot cleaner this year than it was last year. Thanks to Trump?

Rep. Ted Yoho (R) is softening up his conservative stances? Nah, but he's not afraid to team up with Democrats to cosponsor a tax bill that protects taxpayers

HISPANICS LOVE TRUMP - Republicans gaining on Democrats with Hispanics in Florida. Are Democrats running scared? If they aren't they should be. If Trump manages to garner enough Hispanics along the I-4 corridor and in Miami-Dade County, he won't just increase his chances of winning re-election in 2020, but it could help swing the House back over to the GOP. The Miami Herald has more.

President Donald Trump @realDonaldTrump

Since Election Day 2016, Stocks up almost 50%, Stocks gained 9.2 Trillion Dollars in value, and more than 5,000,000 new jobs added to the Economy. @LouDobbs If our opponent had won, there would have been a market crash, plain and simple! @TuckerCarlson @seanhannity@IngrahamAngle

Adam Schiff @RepAdamSchiff

Trump says we have "the cleanest air in the world."

Not so. In fact, air quality is declining for the first time in years. Just as the Trump Administration rolls back the regulations designed to protect us.

Some falsehoods are worse than others. This one could give you cancer.

More Democrats want Trump impeached by Telemundo

More Democratic voters believe that Congress should start impeachment hearings against President Trump's conduct while he is in office, although the country remains divided on this issue, according to a new national poll by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal.

Overall, 27% of Americans say there is enough evidence to immediately start indictment hearings; 10 points more than in last month's survey.

Another 24% think that Congress should continue to investigate whether there is sufficient evidence to hold impeachment hearings in the future. This line has dropped eight points.

And 48% believe that Congress should not hold impeachment hearings and that Trump should end his term as president; a percentage that has not changed since a month ago.

Almost all of the growth in support for the idea of ​​impeachment has come from the Democrats, of whom 48% want the hearings to take place right now. These represented 30% a month ago.

Now only 6% of Republicans support the holding of impeachment hearings, while 86% say that Trump should end his term as president.

Among the independents, 22% want audiences to take place already, 34% prefer to continue investigating and 44% oppose.

The NBC and WSJ poll comes after the end of May former special advisor Robert Mueller addressed the nation affirming that if he had confidence that the president did not commit a crime when it came to obstruction of justice " we would have said it "; as well as after the Trump government has defied the summonses of the democrats to gather more testimonies on the investigation of the Russian plot.

Trump has continued to maintain that he did not obstruct justice in Mueller's investigation of Russia.

Trump exhibits an approval rating of 44%...
