The Rock Thinks 'It's a Real Possibility' He Runs for President in GQ Exclusive | Bleac... - 1 views

  •  
    "When asked about the idea of running for president of the United States in the future, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson left the door open in an interview published Wednesday."
  •  
    I think The Rock could possibly be the president in the future, if Donald Trump won then I believe The Rock can too. The presidential race isn't about politics anymore, but about popularity.

    This is what was happening before Nixon got impeached. Nixon fired a bunch of staff that was researching a scandel. Here it is staff researching ties with russia. This I would say is not okay.

Russia claims it can wipe out US Navy with single 'electronic bomb' - 13 views

  •  
    Russia has claimed it can disable the entire US Navy in one fell swoop using powerful electronic signal jamming. A news report from the country - where the media is essentially controlled by the state - said the technology could render planes, ships and missiles useless.

    Russia is threatening the US with statements saying that they could destroy our navy and air force by jamming all of the signals. In my opinion Trump should take action to make sure that they don't do that because then America would be vulnerable. I'm not saying that we should attack but we should focus on defense right now.
  •  
    If so, why don't the Russians do it? And now that Russia apparently claimed what they can do, can America compete with this and maybe use the same technology on the Russians?
  •  
    How credible is this information? If it is credible what is the Government doing about the threat?
  •  
    Because Russia says they are capable of doing this. There is a possiblity of them expressing it over dramatically. If you look at the technology comparison, the United states is much farther ahead. You don't think we can do the same back at them? We probably can. Just get an EMP.
  •  
    You cant jam an M16 with an electric bomb.
  •  
    I was also reading from a few different sources that an ex-Russian official has suggested that Russia military has the ability to use underwater nukes to detonate a "tsunami bomb" off our coasts. This claim has been officially denied by the Putin govt, but interesting to consider weapons like this.

  •  
    I'm not quite sure why we're so worried about alleged claims created by Russia. Not only that but the U.S. military as well as U.S. technology like Daniel said is much more advanced. If we really want to know if these allegations are true find out. Otherwise you stay living in fear over whether something is true or not. Take their threat and do something about it if it's a threat that's that high in severity.
  •  
    I wonder if Donald Trump has done anything about this, or is planning to. Russia threatening us with this is very serious and I have a feeling Trump is not doing much. Could Russia really disable all planes and missiles through an electronic signal?
  •  
    Is the government going to do anything about this issue? Or should the people have to worry about a near future war ahead?

It's now illegal in Russia to share an image of Putin as a gay clown - The Washington Post - 5 views

    "Russia has banned a picture depicting President Vladimir Putin as a potentially gay clown."

    best headline
  •  
    I don't understand why Putin is making a big deal of this, if it was anyone else he probably wouldn't mind and might even laugh behind closed doors. But because it's him it's a big issue?
  •  
    I think Putin is definitely making a big deal out of one picture, if he doesn't want people to make fun of him or say what they want about him he shouldn't put himself in the spotlight.
  •  
    Freedom of speech isn't much of a right in Russia, but clearly Putin has some insecurities if he went this far.
  •  
    Why is this surprising at all? He is one of the most powerful rulers in the world why would he allow his people to mock him with pictures? Especially pictures depicting him as a gay clown. Not only is it disrespectful it is just dumb in my opinion.
  •  
    Putin is taking this to the extreme. It was just people protesting what they believe in and he got so upset about it that he decided to put people in jail for it.
  •  
    I think that this is being over dramatics. The picture is not harming anyone, people should not be put in jail over a stupid picture.
  •  
    As a public figure, like any, Putin should accept the pros and cons of being in his position, this included.
  •  
    I dont think they should have went that far and banned any images of vladimir because he should know that being at such a high power people are going to be making photos and comments that arent so pleasing.

Senate votes to overturn Obama-era hunting limits of Alaskan wildlife - 0 views

  •  
    A bill is headed to President Donald Trump's desk that would overturn Obama-era hunting restrictions protecting grizzly bears, wolves and other animals on national wildlife refuges in Alaska from hunting tactics such as aerial shooting, baiting and killing animals at their dens or with their cubs.
    I feel as though this should concern more people, as these are their homes that are being intruded upon. It's cowardly to kill something when it is vulnerable. And because these animals are already in danger of becoming endangered it's appalling how many members of our government voted for this bill.
  •  
    Hunting restrictions are created for a reason. Hunting restrictions protect animals of native origin and keep them safe from the possibility of becoming endangered. The fact that so many people are disregarding of this truth is depressing. Alaska is known as the last frontier. It's known for its wildlife and its separation from society.
  •  
    As long as the hunter is licensed and has bought a hunting permit then they should be allowed to fill their tag. People have been using those tactics for years to get meat so what does it matter?

    "So the Senate majority leader's decision to create a 13-man working group on health care, including staunch conservatives and ardent foes of the Affordable Care Act - but no women - has been widely seen on Capitol Hill as a move to placate the right as Congress decides the fate of President Barack Obama's signature domestic achievement."

Trump budget calls for billions for border wall with Mexico - 5 views

  •  
    President Trump's discretionary budget plan set to be released Thursday reportedly includes a request for $2.6 billion in funding to begin planning and building a "physical wall" along the border with Mexico along with security funding. The Wall Street Journal reported that Tump will ask Congress for billions in new spending to be earmarked ofr immigration enforcement.

    Trump thinks he'll be able to persuade mexico to build the wall. He's crazy for thinking that. Why would they want to help fund for the wall when they don't want be even leave the United States. There's no way he'll be able to persuade them.
  •  
    I doubt Mexico will at all consider paying for the wall, it's just not their problem.
  •  
    I doubt that Mexico will pay for it because Trump is the one who wants it up, not them.
  •  
    What will Trump do if they refuse to pay?
  •  
    I don't think Trump actually thought about what would need to happen to make his precious wall when he was campaigning. I think he was more focused on getting the position and making everything sound good and now that it's time to step up to the plate HE created, he's trying to find anyway to get the money needed to fill said plate. He wants to cut so many programs and he expects others to pay and he just has his expectation bar to high. The border wall he wants to make would take $21 billion dollars! That's a lot of money to raise and I just can't help but think, what are the consequences of the actions he's willing to take to make that money appear.
  •  
    Who is going to pay for the wall?
