I have trouble understanding why a newspaper would allow such easily debunked drivel to be published on it's pages. As Trump's team is facing investigation and arrest for colluding with Russia to influence our presidential election, Friday's RCN proves that right wing writers have their marching orders. It is a tribute to the powers of a disappointing media that such false information can be given the authority of the editorial page. It is also extremely disappointing that people with any shred of rationality will believe any of it.

Flo Charles spews lie upon breathless lie in Friday's RCN as the supposed balance to Gerald Largen's facts and well reasoned opinion. I will not repeat lies here. I will tell you that the Obama administration did release Iranian monetary assets that had been embargoed in this county as a condition to the Iranian nuclear treaty. That's how statesmanship works. $1.7 billion was in hard cash and bullion, simply because Republicans who lost the vote in the Senate, nonetheless tried to sabotage the deal by passing legislation with the help of a couple of turncoat Dems that prevented the State Department from using the US banking system from conducting business with Iran.

I will also tell you that Hillary did not sell US uranium to Russia. Russia bought some Canadian owned mines in the USA with the full approval of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, a committee totally reshaped by President Bush in his last year in office.

The world will be watching today as Trump's former campaign manager and other members of his entourage face prosecution for selling out America to the Russians. I suspect Flo will be glued to FOX News who will somehow tell her that it is all Obama's fault that Hillary is a fine upstanding citizen who has served her nation with superior expertise and honor.

And now, I am going to get outside and enjoy this beautiful fall day.
