Some very powerful Republicans in South Carolina are now supportive of removing the Confederate flag from the capitol. Governor Nikki Haley, Senator Tim Scott, and several other Republican legislators are saying the flag’s time has come.

The Obama administration is deathly afraid of losing Greece to Russia if the Greeks continue to pull away from the EU.
