Long before the FBI, CIA, DNI and NSA figured out that Russia was bombarding social media with an avalanche of disinformation, fake news and bots, a fellow blogger, Rob Goldstein of Art by Rob Goldstein.com had been sounding the alarms about this issue for several months in advance of the US presidential election day. And others including myself picked up on the mantle.

Tidbit: In months July/ August 2017 watch groups have noted a 5300% increase in Russian bots/ trolls demanding the firing of the NSA secretary, General H.R. McMaster.

Editorial cartoon on Paul Ryan and Republicans and health careBy now, July 25, 2017, we have learned that the US Senate had a vote of 51 to 50 which allows debate for the repeal of Obamacare/ ACA/ Affordable Care Act. Senators will be making several attempts to repeal healthcare that is one- sixth of the US economy. Some amendments will require 60 votes and some 50 where Vice President Mike Pence would be required to cast the tie breaking vote.

I was very disappointed and let down when Senator John McCain came onto the Senate floor, to make clear that while he didn’t support the current bill, he agreed that they should at least begin debate on the health legislation.  And he did this after flying across the country due to his absence because of his recent surgery and a brain cancer diagnosis. Still, he delivered a sobering rebuke to GOP leaders about their resistance to work on a healthcare…
