Democrats have wanted to invest in climate control for twenty years and, at the least, take the issue seriously. After weeks of turning their backs on soldiers exposed to human, chemical, and toxic waste from burn pits, GOP politicians finished their ruthlessness by voting, by a majority, to deny children,...

Donald Trump’s Hitler Goof rallies have been drawing less and less interest lately, in part because windmill cancer has tragically taken so many of his rural devotees and also because Fox News no longer sees any benefit to broadcasting them. And why would they? His shtick never changes. It’s like watching...

Time and anti-tank weapons favor the Ukrainians even if air superiority remains complicated. An extended siege of Kyiv looks possible with the current stalemate, and long-range bombardment continues.

The situation has become fraught with increases in attacks on civilians, amid charges and counter charges. Bombardment continues and a few Ukrainian counter attacks are offset by brutality in places like Mariupol.

We haven’t yet reached that point where the losses to the Russians are sustainable. Replacements may be on their way to the front.

Short, sweet, to the point and, above all, awesome. Today, Russia announced it was sanctioning President Biden and several other current and former U.S. officials—including, for some reason, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Shockingly, Donald Trump was not sanctioned. Possibly because withholding pallet shipments of 12-cheese blinis from noncombatants is...

All wars are battles among falcons, they are never fought between hawks and doves. A UN enforced no-fly-zone would have no doves. As James Clapper said on CNN: “The game’s on”. The reality is that wars like Ukraine-Russia are fought in blood even if they can be modeled as a series of...

An “operative lull” seems now ready to end. Bombardment resumes and the messaging about “foreign fighters” increases with the slowing of the Russian advance to take major cities.

If there’s anything more pathetic than Ted Cruz being pusillanimous, it’s Ted Cruz trying to act tough.
