According to a poll released by Moscow’s Levada Center on Monday, Russians see Joseph Stalin as the “most outstanding person in history,” with current strongman Vladimir Putin coming in second.
The race for the top spot was tight, and Putin had to share second place with poet Alexander Pushkin. They both took 34 percent of the vote to Stalin’s 38 percent.
After the top three, came Vladimir Lenin, Tsar Peter the Great, and astronaut Yuri Gagarin, according to the UK Daily Mail.
With the forlorn toot of a sad trombone, it must be announced that the man once regarded by the American left as the most outstanding person in history, Mikhail Gorbachev, the final leader of the Soviet Find Out More…
Dr. Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to the president and former National Security editor for Breitbart News, joined Breitbart News Daily for an interview on Tuesday, just in time for SiriusXM host Alex Marlow to present him with the latest Fake News scandal: the undercover video of a CNN producer admitting the President Trump-Russia story was “mostly bulls**t” and hyped for “ratings.”

The White House warned Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad that if he uses chemical weapons again, he will face another response from President Donald Trump.
“As we have previously stated, the United States is in Syria to eliminate the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria,” a statement from White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said. “If, however, Mr. Assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons, he and his military will pay a heavy price.”
Spicer announced that the United States identified “potential preparations” for another attack using chemical weapons, predicting that it would attack civilians, including children.
“The activities are similar to preparations the regime made before its April 4, 2017 chemical weapons attack,” the statement read. The statement was released Monday night.
President Donald Trump continued fighting against the narrative surrounding the Russian interference into the presidential election, accusing former President Barack Obama of colluding to save Hillary Clinton.
“The reason that President Obama did NOTHING about Russia after being notified by the CIA of meddling is that he expected Clinton would win and did not want to ‘rock the boat,’ Trump wrote on Twitter Monday.
The president focused on a Washington Post article that quoted an Obama official admitting that the administration “choked” when responding to the threat Russia posed.
“He didn’t ‘choke,’” Trump wrote. “He colluded or obstructed, and it did the Dems and Crooked Hillary no good.”

A growing number of Democratic lawmakers are publicly pushing their party leadership to shift their focus away from President Donald Trump’s alleged election campaign collusion with Russia and toward the issues facing American voters: jobs, health care, and the economy.
“We can’t just talk about Russia because people back in Ohio aren’t really talking that much about Russia, about Putin, about Michael Flynn,” Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) said on MSNBC this week. “They’re trying to figure out how they’re going to make the mortgage payment, how they’re going to pay for their kids to go to college, what their energy bill looks like.”
Ryan, who recently launched a campaign to remove Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from her post, said, “if we don’t talk more about their interest than Find Out More…

President Donald Trump continued pushing back on the left’s obsession with Russian attempts to influence the 2016 election, criticizing former President Barack Obama for failing to respond properly.
“I just heard today for the first time that Obama knew about Russia a long time before the election, and he did nothing about it,” Trump said in an interview with Fox and Friends on Sunday.
Trump was referring to a report stating that the CIA gave Obama information about the Russian attempt to influence the election, but quoted administration officials who lamented that they failed to respond properly.
“The question is if he had the information, why didn’t he doesn’t something about it?” Trump asked.
Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” when asked about reports that the Obama administration knew long before November’s vote that Russian President Vladimir Putin was directly meddling in the 2016 presidential election, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that President Barack Obama made a “mistake” by not making that information public.
Schiff said, “I think the Obama administration should have done a lot more when it became clear that not only was Russia was interfering but that it was being directed by the highest levels of the Kremlin.”
He added,”I think that was a mistake, but I have to contest what President Trump is saying, because for Donald Trump who openly egged on the Russians to hack Hillary Clinton’s emails and celebrated Find Out More…
Author Paul Sperry reports that the Senate is probing the partisan nature of a DC opposition research firm which produced a “dossier” on then-presidential candidate Donald Trump in 2016 alleging that he is a secret agent of Russian President Vladimir Putin — recruited via blackmail with a videotape of Trump and urinating Russian prostitutes.
Former FBI Director James Comey reportedly cited that discredited dossier as the basis for the current investigation of “Russian interference” in the 2016 election, which has been taken up by Robert Mueller, a friend of Comey’s who served as FBI Director under presidents Bush and Obama.
