Catching Up on Current Events

. . . or, at least, on three of the outstanding issues.

Putin, Obama, & Ukraine

Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton famously hit the "reset" button with Russia. Now it seems clear she (& etc.) were unclear on the concept.

While she and her successor weren't paying attention, Mother Russia made a stealth move.

That left President Obama completely impotent. All he could do was make meaningless statements.

Actually, that's not quite right. He was also able to repeatedly hit that famous reset button.

And here's a good part of the reason that's all Obama can do.

Intelligence & Surveillance

One issue with Russia's invasion of Ukraine is, why didn't the intelligence agencies see it coming? Here's part of why.

Here's another part — which also raises the question of why that group was fine with the surveillance until they were the ones surveilled.


Meanwhile, Obamacare has become a big issue for Democrats who might want to win in November.

And this is part of the reason why.
