Sunday News: Master of Scams Says Recount a “Scam”; Trump’s America an Ugly, Ugly Place


by Lowell

Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Sunday, November 27.

    Re Sea level rise in Hampton Roads region. I’m still wondering why Virginia Beach voted for Trump. Seriously, they live near the ocean, what do they know that we don’t know?

    • Bunch of right-wingnut climate science deniers,

    My new theory as to why the Russians supported Trump: it’s not about the “great game” of geopolitics and spheres of influence. It was all about money. It was a group of Russian oligarchs supporting an American oligarch because it will be good for business, specifically, the Russian oil and gas industries. The big thing that Hillary Clinton demonstrated that she could do as Secretary of State was put together a coalition to impose economic sanctions. Well, the Russian oligarchs don’t want sanctions against them or Russia in general for their push into Crimea, or for anything else they are doing, plus they want to keep selling their fossil fuels to the West. That’s reason enough for them to support Trump. They don’t want to end NATO and thus destabilize the system that has kept the peace in Europe for 70 years.

    • I think it’s both – oligarchs with economic interests as you state, also great power politics as practiced by the former KGB agent who’s now President of Russia.
