Russia/Iran Sanctions Delayed In House: Policy Change...or Deep State Pressure?

Daniel McAdams at 8 hours ago
The Senate recently passed a new round of sanctions on Iran and Russia (98-2), with House concurrence likely by a similar margin. Then out of nowhere came concerns over a money/tax bill originating in the Senate instead of the Constitution-mandated House. Is Congress suddenly concerned about the Constitution? Don't believe it. The delay in House action on the bill is being seized by Democrats as yet more proof that Trump and the Republican Party are in the pay of Putin and thus will not pass new sanctions. What's really at play in the delay? Tune in to today's Liberty Report:

*Kris Osborn* *Security, Asia* What happens after launch? *While the initial development of MOKV is aimed at configuring the “kill vehicle” for a GBI, there is early thinking about integrating the technology onto a Standard Missile-3, or SM-3, an interceptor missile also able to knock incoming ICBMs out of space. The SM-3 is also an exo-atmopheric "kill vehicle," meaning it can destroy short and intermediate range incoming targets; its "kill vehilce" has no explosives but rather uses kinetic energy to collide with and obliterate its target.

A year and two weeks ago (the date is important as you will find out) this humble editor decided to spoil himself for once.

I am now using an old 18" monitor to do this blog and I cannot (or should I say will not) use my iMacs for his blog. I forgot what using an 18" monitor feels like. Memo to all readers .... its not the same. :( I am off to get a new monitor. Blogging will return within the hour.

UK population rise of 538,000 is biggest for 70 years per BBC News

Hidden away in this BBC report http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-40303300 on the latest population figures is this telling passage: 'The population of the UK has increased by just over five million in 11 years - previously it took 35 years, from 1970 to 2005, to make the same leap.'
