That's why I thought it ironic that while we were celebrating this great day in our histo- ry, seven U.S. Senators and one Rep- resentative were whooping it up in Russia with Putin's muckety-mucks. They met with the cr me de la cr6me of Putin's government. PutinI One of the most autocratic, despotic and cunning leaders in the world, second only to North Korea's Kim Jong Un. (Actually, that could be debated.) But, it's the two leaders that Trump looks up to and holds in high regard. THIS TRIP to Russia by these Sen- ators, paid for with our tax dollars, was not announced prior to the meet- ing. In fact, Sen. John Kennedy from Louisiana stated, "We didn't want to cause waves prior to the meeting with the Russian delegation." That tells me these senators knew what they were doing was questionable. My ques- tion is, why would these Senators want to sit down and buddy up to the people who interfered in our 2016 election? The day the Senators met wma me mucKety-mucKs, the enate Intelligence Committee reaffirmed the report from the U.S. intelligence agencies. The Senators' defense was "We talked to them about that and said it can't happen again" Give. Me. A. Break. IN CASE you are keeping an "en- emy of the people's list,' here are the names of the Senators and Represen- tative that chose to spend Indepen- dence Day in Russia: The delegation was led by Richard Shelby of Ala- bama. The others were John Thune of South Dakota, John Kennedy of Louisiana, Jerry Moran of Kansas, John Hoeven of North Dakota, Steve Daines of Montana, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Rep. Kay Granger of Texas. THE SENATORS said they hoped to start a "new day" with Russia ahead of the Trump/Putin summit in two weeks. This "new day" will be exactly what Russia wants and needs. It's what Trump wants too, but it's not what this country needs, Putin has a master plan. He wants to be the lead- er of the world. Trump is paving the road for him. Just a short 19 months ago, the U.S. was the most trusted and revered government in the world. We're dropping fast. Trump has disrespected and alienated our long- time allies in favor of tyrannical governments. He is playing right into Putin's hands. FOR EXAMPLE, we all know that mother's breast milk is the healthi- est food for a baby It builds their immune system and is easier on their stomachs, just to name a few reasons. A few months ago, the United Nations- World Health Assembly was held in Geneva. Representatives were there from nearly every country. Ecuador had a petition to present that con- tained the wording that members of the World Health Assembly would "protect, promote, and support breastfeeding" This has been a stated mission of the organization for 40 years. The passage of this bill was a given - until the delegation from the United States' Health and Human Services wanted to take those words out of the petition. The U.S. took the side of big infant formula manufac- turers. Surprised? WHEN ECUADOR refused to delete those words, the U.S. delega- tion threatened Ecuador that Wash- ington may punish them with steep trade measures and may take away the military assistance they have been provided. Ecuador backed out. Advocates of the petition tried to find another country to present the petition to the Assembly with no luck. Finally, Russia steps up and says "We'll do it" They did, and the mea- sure passed. The U.S. did not threaten Russia. I wonder why Russia received much praise and the United States looked like jack-asses in the eyes of all the countries involved in the World Health Assembl)n This action and others like ,it being taken by the Trump administration weakens our standing in the world each day. THE "NEW DAY" will come in two weeks when Trump and Putin meet for the big summa in Geneva. Like Trump did with Kim Jong-Un, he plans to meet with Putin one-on-one, alone, with no note-takers. During the North Korea summit, we know he gave Kim Jong Un a major conces- sion, no more training exercises in the Korean Peninsula in return for scrap-damn-doodle. Plus, even our government is report- ing that Kim Jong-Un is still pursuing nuclear weapons at secret sites. WHAT IS Trump going to give Putin? We mac never know unless Russian Television tells us. My best guess is sanctions will be lifted that were put in place in 2014 when Rus- sia annexed Crimea. (Annexed in this case is a nice word for forcibly taking another country). You remember the big "adoption" meeting that wasn't ac- tually about adoptions but sanctions? I'm sure Putin can't sleep for worry- ing about all the Russian orphans that he'd like American families to raise. Or, will Trump give Putin something more substantial like Syria? After all, Trump owes Putin bigly for getting him elected. THE BIG question is, what will Putin give Trump? Probably scrap- damn-doodle. One things for sure, it won't be the original video tape.

Continued from Front happened next, according to the report: The Camaro began to speed away and the woman tossed a large amount of mail out the window. The Camaro then stopped on Pate Road at its intersection with Laura Lane and the female passenger, described as 6 feet tall and heavyset, got out and started running. Meanwhile, the Camaro sped away to the west on Pate Road as Maples gave pursuit at speeds of 90 mph. Finally, the driver stopped on the Pate Road bridge over 1-75 and Maples approached with his gun drawn. At first he disobeyed orders to show his hands, but he finally put them up and was arrested. The suspect, Philips Kalu, 31, of Denver, was charged with fleeing police, fail- ure to maintain lane and speeding. Deputies were unable to find the female passenger who fled on foot. Kalu claimed her name was Joanne and that he just had just met her and was giving her a ride. Deputies found her purse in the car and found a fake ID. The woman apparently went back and recovered the marl she had stolen as it couldn't be located either. Kalu already faces theft charges in the Atlanta area, and Maples said he was not cooperative with informa- tion. Meanwhile, on the same day, a Pate Road resident told deputy Jake Justice that he learned while on vaca- tion that someone had tried to open a bank account in his name. He checked his credit score and found someone had tried to open two other bank accounts in his name as well. He was also contacted by two BMW dealerships who said someone tried to buy a car in his name. Someone had tried to open a bank account in his wife's name too. They cancelled the fraudulent accounts. And three days later, on July 5, a Pate Road couple reported someone tried to open bank accounts in their names while they were on a trip as well. Maples said he thinks the suspects were ordering credit cards in n es of Pate Road residents, steal- ing them when they arrived in their mailboxes and leaving the rest of the marl. He said he's turned the case over to the U.S. postal ser- vice and the U.S. attorney in Macon and said Kalu and his accomplice will'also likely face federal charges for their sophisticated iden- tity theft campaign. Continued from Front he was going to strike him. Daniels told Haskins he never touched his ex-wife and that Davis took a swing at him that he dodged, and then swept Davis' legs out before they started wrestling. Daniels said he didn't want to press charges. Witnesses said they saw An- derson hit her ex-husband in the back of the head, but Davis denied picking up a skateboard during the altercation. Haskins said due to the conflict- ing stories he was unable to deter- mine what happened or to bring any charges. The DP s office also looked at the case and agreed it did not warrant a prosecution. Monroe County's Tyler Wood was the first voter to cast a ballot on Monday, July 2 as early vot- ing began for the July 24 runoff election.
