RUSSIAN SATELLITE DOING WEIRD STUFF, MAYBE 

A Russian satellite launched in October of last year, as been reported of making abnormal behaviors in space.  I know right. The US thinks the satellite could be used to stage space weapons as the movement of the satellite is erratic and hard to understand from space. Speculators state that the satellite could be equipped with microwave or laser technology designed to disrupt communications from space.  Of course, the Russians are calling these allegations slanderous and unfounded. Like they haven’t messed with us before.

Senate Republican leaders are focused on passing legislation that appeals to independent and swing voters in the final weeks before the midterm elections - instead of throwing red meat to the base of the Republican Party.  It’s a unique strategy from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who has publicly acknowledged that Democrats could win back control of the upper chamber this fall. McConnell’s game plan contrasts with the election-year rhetoric and tweets of President Trump, who has highlighted divisive issues such as immigration.
