    Heaven forbid we have good relations with Russia. They also seem to forget every president since Bush has had meetings and tried to improve relations with Putin and Russia.

    @The Linguini Occurrence? there is also a lot of smoke screens going on with this trade deadline stuff like usual. There was a report that the Yankees weren't high on Miguel Andujar and the next day there was a report the Yankees wouldn't be including Miguel Andujar in any trade negotiations. Right now the rumor is the Yankees are going after Cardinals Pitcher Carlos Martinez, the Yankees front office has strong ties with the Cardinals front office. The Angels are also rumored to be a trade location as well.

    Also a story from almost a month ago that got zero media attention(I wonder why). The Obama White House’s chief cyber official testified Wednesday that proposals he was developing to counter Russia’s attack on the U.S. presidential election were put on a “back burner” after he was ordered to “stand down” his efforts in the summer of 2016. They came during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing into how the Obama administration dealt with Russian cyber and information warfare attacks in 2016, an issue that has become one of the more politically sensitive subjects in the panel’s ongoing investigation into Russia’s interference in the U.S. election and any links to the Trump campaign. The view that the Obama administration failed to adequately piece together intelligence about the Russian campaign and develop a forceful response has clearly gained traction with the intelligence committee. Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., the ranking Democrat on the panel, said in an opening statement that “we were caught flat-footed at the outset and our collective response was inadequate to meet Russia’s escalation.” That conclusion was reinforced Wednesday by another witness, Victoria Nuland, who served as assistant secretary of state for Europe during the Obama administration. She told the panel that she had been briefed as early as December 2015 about the hacking of the Democratic National Committee — long before senior DNC officials were aware of it — and that the intrusion had all the hallmarks of a Russian operation.

    A watchdog group made up of former US Intel experts said that very thing. Also hilarious the same group started to call out Bush and his bullshit This whole thing smells and I'm usually not one for conspiracy theories.

    Watching DNC Chairman Tom Perez on CNN scream about Russians declaring war by "hacking" their servers, all the while he can't answer the simple question of why the DNC didn't allow the FBI or Homeland Security to look at their servers after they were "hacked" says it all.

    I don't get either man, I like Machado but its not like Andujar and Didi haven't been good (Didi had one awful month), this is why Torres and Sanchez being out for a while as well. I would rather go after some pitching if we are going to give up top prospects, Mets had a scout at Justus Sheffield's last start and if I'm giving up someone like him I would rather go after DeGrom or Thor.

    So Brett Kavanaugh is Trump's pick for the Supreme Court. He is socially conservative(naturally), ruled semi automatic pistols and rifles are protected by the second amendment. Apparently he was the "safest" choice and the easiest to get confirmed by the Senate.

    One of Trump's final four picks for the Supreme Court, Judge Thomas Hardiman is an "extremist" when it comes to the second amendment. “He believes the government has very little leeway in regulating guns. He thinks the only types of gun-control laws that are constitutionally permissible are ones that existed at the founding,” said Winkler, author of “Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America.” He described Hardiman as a “Second Amendment extremist.”
