Back in the 19th century, British journalists used the bear as a derogatory symbol for Russia, calling that nation a brutish bully from the back woods. Early in this century, Russia adopted the symbol and it now represents the United Russia Party, Putin’s Russian GOP. Putin’s Pervert may be saying that Russia will interfere in the 2018 midterms to help Democrats, but the bear is after Claire.

Absolutely, TomCat - but it isn't enough to just vote blue. First of all, we need to do our homework so we can pick the best candidates. However, right now any ol' Democrat is almost certainly better than any Republican.

Don't just plan to vote. Make sure all your progressive kith and kin who are at least 18, or will turn 18 soon, are registered. Make sure YOU are registered so you can get on the rolls now rather than learn too late you've been purged. Volunteer for a registration drive, and/or to drive people to the polls. Voting is a superpower, but it works only when used properly.

Yeah, Rachel, major detective work to prevent this going on.
He'll (dt) try his damnest to get the votes for himself and his cronies, with Russia's hacking.
We use a paper trail here, thank gawd!
'Blinking Red' indeed. Unreal !

I did see this story (Though I hadn't seen Rachel on it yet - in fact, I still haven't - my computer is resisting). My take is that, yes, Claire is a moderste Democrat. BUT 1) it's Missouri. 2) Russian hacking, to me, constitutes an endorsement.And, if they are hacking her because she's been tough on russia, that's a great endorsement - we can be pretty confident she won't try to interfere with any investigations into treason with Russia. And that's something we really need, especially right now.

Someone introduced a bill requiring paper ballots as part of process for audits etc. in elections...seems like the fastest option to restore faith in election counts..

Agree with Freya. We have lot of work to do to get our country back to some sort of normal again. Keep with the paper ballots to keep a trail. Thanks TomCat

Ms. McCaskell is too conservative for must of here, but she is a good Democrat and an appropriate Democrat from Missouri which outside of St Louis is an incredibly southern, and scary, state...….or at least was when I lived there in the 90s...…...for school

Dumpy will do anything he can to help the Russians, the Martains, Yetti and friends, to screw with our elections, while he blathers about MAGA.  The best thing he can do for MAGA would be to get out of office, and take Pence with him!
Joanne, I love that 'toon!!!!!!!

The Russians are intent on helping Drumpf, and subsequently the GOP, again as Drumpf is cornered further each day by the Mueller investigation, spilling of former associate’s beans and his own irrational, even treacherous, behaviour. If the Russians can take down someone who strongly opposes them that’s just an added bonus.

But I think the situation is getting even more precarious than that; Drumpf needs a war to keep himself afloat. The trade wars turn out a disaster for America, Kim Jong-un has gotten the better of him, so where to go now? Of course Drumpf is now attacking Iran, the only country willing to play game by answering in equal rhetoric.

Apparently he’s gotten some Australian politicians scared that Aussies will be involved where “former allies” no longer wish to follow.
"Donald Trump could be ready to order a strike against Iran, Australian Government figures say
Senior figures in the Turnbull Government have told the ABC they believe the United States is prepared to bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities, perhaps as early as next month, and that Australia is poised to help identify possible targets."

This news was repeated again and again here yesterday, stressing that Australia would be involved. As it was rather quiet about this on the US front about this, and only today was denied by US Secretary of Defence James Mattis, who had reinforced America’s hard line against Iran only the week before, I believe it likely that the unnamed “senior figures in government” leaked this information to indirectly prevent Drumpf from starting another war and having the Aussie government making it clear that they’re not happy with it and will not play a further role in any military action.

Trump is desperate to stay in office to undo everything Obama accomplished. I fear that he will start a war, with Russia’s help, so that he can be assured of his eight years. His friendship with Putin should put our do nothing Congress on high alert, but most of them like what he is doing because it benefits their wealthy contributors. If Obama had colluded with Russia they would have had him impeached immediately. Manchin is under attack in West Virginia so he will probably side with Trump just to keep his job.

“In August 2017, around the time of the hack attempt, Trump traveled to Missouri and chided McCaskill, telling the crowd to “vote her out of office.” Just this last week, however, Trump said, on Twitter, that he feared Russians would intervene in the 2018 midterm elections on behalf of Democrats.”

If you recall, when Drumpf said “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing.”, Russia then began the hack of the DNC and the Clinton campaign. I am sure that Drumpf telling a Missouri crowd to vote her out was a word to Russia to begin the cyber attack of McCaskill’s re-election campaign.

The idea that Russia would interfere in the mid terms on behalf of Democrats as Drumpf has said it would do, is pure malarkey. He asserts this because he said he has been the hardest of all American presidents on Russia. What a pile of bull shit! In my opinion, Drumpf is being played by Putin, only Drumpf is too stupid to comprehend the magnitude of his folly.

Right now, Drumpf is a useful fool to Russia, but how long will that last?

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

Dave, I agree. I too would prefer someone more progressive, but in Missouri, someone more progressive would lose.
