Trump, the Republican Party, and of course, Wheeling “newspapers” response to questions about the president’s Russian connections? Attack Hillary.

Trump, some Republicans, and rightwing media are back to one of their old tricks to deflect the increasing scrutiny of the president’s Russian connections – bring back a previously discredited story about Hillary Clinton, Russia and uranium. Trump on Tuesday and Wednesday raised the point again followed by the usual suspects. Breitbart, for . . .

The Intelligencer returns to its old ways

The paper drops a critical paragraph from a front page AP story and publishes yet another editorial attacking the Clintons

More than just food stamps

Cuts to Food Stamps Part of Budget Proposal

The original AP article, . . .

Senator Joe in the news

Manchin and Trumpcare

Senator Manchin was interviewed last night by Politico and had some things to say about the health care package passed yesterday by the House:

Did Michael Flynn do something yesterday?

The story about Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, asking for immunity broke late yesterday afternoon. It made it to the evening network newscasts and was the featured story on the non-Fox cable news stations for most of the evening.

Karma, anyone?

Lt. Gen Michael Flynn at the Republican Convention leading the crowd in "lock her up"

Given Flynn's illegal actions, I'm sure our local "newspapers" will immediately call for swift punishment for, as yesterday's editorial that referenced Hillary Clinton put it, "behavior that was illegal and damaging to national security." Just kidding.

Reading the Sunday Opinion Section

Plastics

In The Graduate (1967) Benjamin (Dustin Hoffman) gets advice from a friend of the family: "I want to say one word to you. Just one word. . . . Plastics." I thought of the movie as I read Friday morning's Intelligencer front page. You may have been as stunned as I was that the top story was
