Sessions was asked at his confirmation hearing by Dr. Strange ( Al Franken) if he had any conversations with any Russians during the Presidential campaign. This was in the context of conversations about the campaign, and Senator Sessions answered truthfully that he did not. But, he had conversations with Russians as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. Not about anything to do with the election, and his fellow committee members , those who are Republicans and not Anti-Trump fanatics, all say it's routine for committee members to do that.
But now, having done in Flynn by innuendo, Schumer has set his sights on Sessions. He has help from some Republicans, among them in particular Marco Rubio and Darrel Issa, ( a Republican Representative from, you guessed it, California.)
On a related subject, there is a NY Times story making news today. The Times, no fan of President Trump and rabidly liberal, is reporting that prior to leaving the White House, Barack Hussein Obama told his staffers to disseminate specially prepared "intelligence reports" concerning alleged contacts between the Trump campaign and the Russians.
These reports were prepared by a Clinton loyalist from an unidentified intelligence agency. They were written in such a way as to disclose no sources, so there is no way to verify what's in them. It's the usual "highly placed sources who cannot be identified because they were not authorized to discuss " this fraud, Obama's people were to distribute these reports as widely as possible, especially to the media. Fox News said this morning that this was the first instance they were aware of in history where an American President on his way out took such extreme efforts to impact the incoming administration. I'll post the clip of the segment when I can get it. Usually about 24 hours after a segment airs it goes up on their video page.
The Times is a Democratic Tool, and this story is designed to make Obama look like a Knight in Shining Armor, having his people protect the American public even as he prepares to leave office.
That covers the last 24 hours of the news cycle. I watched CBS last night, for the first time in ages, to see how they would deal with the President's speech. Not surprisingly it was 25 minutes of unremitting attacks on President Trump, and 5 minutes of inane "human interest " stories. The big tornadoes and storms that went through the South yesterday weren't interesting enough to them to mess with.
News you don't hear on American television.
I've been trying to keep some of the news from Europe on here from time to time. It's being completely ignored by every news agency but Fox, and even they are just using it as a filler.
This fellow has some excellent posts, and he's not afraid to speak the truth although in England, you can be imprisoned for "inflammatory speech."
The overall bottom line on all the shrieking and telling of outright lies on the news.
On the "Cover your Derriere Front."

This little book has been out forever too. It's published by Backwoods Home. I've read Backwoods Home, on and off, for many years. Recently they announced they are going digital only. If they provide the entire magazine, including adds, I'll subscribe. Digital magazines are cheap, and don't require storage space.
This paperback would be nice to have on hand. Even if you have been studying self sufficiency for a long time, there are useful things in here that you probably have overlooked.
