    Russian airlines are now authorized to seize foreign planes to use for domestic purposes after Russian President Vladimir Putin signed it into law. The new law will allow Russian airlines to keep and continue operating aircraft leased from foreign entities despite canceled contracts due to sanctions, according to a report that cited state news agency TASS. This comes as the international community has placed crippling sanctions on Russia after it invaded neighboring country Ukraine. RUSSIA SLAPS RETALIATORY SANCTIONS ON HILLARY CLINTON AND HUNTER BIDEN Despite the new ability to keep foreign aircraft, it reportedly won't have a lasting effect, as planes of their caliber require consistent maintenance and updates that will not be received as a result of the sanctions.

The "stop list" reportedly featured 13 figures. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE FROM THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER "I want to thank...

    Former Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard crossed party lines to give the keynote address Friday night at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando.  Gabbard, who's been both politically aligned with Sen. Bernie Sanders and also a frequent guest on Fox News, gave a twisty-turny speech where she raged against the 'power elite' and 'their co-conspirators in the mainstream media and the security state.'  She pleased the right-leaning crowd by saying that in an ideal world 'our leaders would haul James Clapper before a judge to answer for his lies to Congress about how the government is collecting information.' 'And they would support the Durham investigation and Clinton corruption in 2016... ,' she said, not even finishing her sentence before there was raucous applause.  She went after both Democrats and Republicans in Congress 'who talk a good game about civil liberties, but when it comes time to cast that vote on things like getting rid of secret FISA courts and protecting our fourth amendment rights to privacy, they vote on the side of the power elite and against liberty.'  CROSSING THE...
