Does anyone doubt that Putin is Trump's role model, and this news from Russia deeply inspires him?

Putin challenger Alexey Navalny barred from running for president

MOSCOW -- Russian election officials on Monday formally barred Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny from running for president, prompting calls from him for a boycott of next year's vote. The Central Election Commission decided unanimously that the anti-corruption crusader isn't eligible to run.

Navalny is implicitly barred from running for office because of a conviction in a fraud case which has been viewed as political retribution. He could have run if he was given a special dispensation or if his conviction was cancelled.

Incumbent Vladimir Putin is set to easily win a fourth term in office in the March 18 election, with his approval ratings topping 80 percent.

Trump tweets image that he's "winning" (... his war on the First Amendment?)

Is it his goal to abolish freedom of the press? I don't know of any other interpretation that would make sense.

Politico Headline: "Republicans plan mega marketing push to sell unpopular tax plan"

'When [voters] start to see what happens to their paychecks,' said one conservative, 'they will change their minds.'

This vividly highlights one of the major differences between Democrats and Republicans. It's virtually impossible to imagine a Democratic Congress pulling a stunt like this.

The GOP feeds on American stupidity, and unfortunately there's plenty of it to go around.

I just realized what Trump and his sycophantic cabinet remind me of

The Kubler-Ross model, or Five Stages of Denial. Are we seeing that in Trump?

Trump predicts exoneration in Russia investigation as allies fear a 'meltdown'

President Donald Trump is privately striking a less agitated tone on the Russia investigation, sources say, even insisting he'll soon be cleared in writing. But his new approach has some allies worried he's not taking the threat of the probe seriously enough.

Trump has spent much of his first year in office so enraged by the federal investigation into Russian meddling in last year's election that lawmakers who work with him tried to avoid the issue entirely and his friends worried that Trump might rashly fire the special counsel. But in recent weeks, Trump has privately seemed less frustrated about the investigation, according to multiple sources who have spoken with the President.

Mr. President, I invite you to prove USA Today wrong and come clean my toilet.

CNN makes a stupid science error but there's no comment section to complain about it.

Voyager 1 spacecraft thrusters fired up for first time since 1980

NASA scientists needed to reorient the 40-year-old Voyager 1 -- the space agency's farthest spacecraft -- so its antenna would point toward Earth, 13 billion miles away.

...

Tuesday, engineers fired up the thrusters and waited eagerly to find out whether the plan was successful. They got their answer 19 hours and 35 minutes later, the time it took for the results to reach Earth.


Actually, if it was 13 billion miles away they would have had to wait twice that long.
