Poland

The war continues with Russian troops hiding among hospital facilities in the south using staff as cover or shields. They exhibit slow progress toward Kiev even as talks continue and the PR offensive remains solid with Zelensky speaking to the Canadian Parliament and the Prime Ministers of Czechia, Poland, and Slovenia....

Bombardment continues with over 900 missiles launched against Ukraine and the notable media appearance was the on-air protest by an editor on Russian State TV. She was arrested and seems to be held incommunicado from her lawyers. “(T)oo many civilian targets have been hit by Russian bombs for them all...

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. Smaller cities that have been captured are being repressed by Russians and some proxies with brutal efficiency. The war continues to be...

One incident occurred just hours ago as a flight gets diverted to OKC because a passenger wanted to step outside. Yet another #hijack attempt aboard a plane? The plane was diverted to OKC.

Banana Republic is not yet a bankrupt concept in America, although it is being sorely tested. Trump’s 1/6 coup counted on the numbers of RWNJs in the US military, including some QAnon-influenced former National Security and ex-DoD/Military. The hint at the misuse of federal personnel was foreshadowed in the Summer...

A Swiss Navy Knife. A new article in Forbes about the failure of the F-35 aircraft system in terms of building a Ferrari points us toward the problem of seeking nails for hammers. Another failed weapons system signifies how national security could remain intact without waste and still save the economy...

Apparently there is a Trump-Orban-Putin authoritarian alliance as well as coordination and support for the Trump re-election campaign. It did seem more inevitable that Mitt Romney would choose party over country if only to demonstrate a potential leadership position upon the repudiation of Trumpism. Apparently he can vote one way...

He’s golfing again this weekend in Bedminster. Will he do more pseudo-pressers and populate the “press corps” with “reporters’ from Epoch Times, Gateway Pundit, and OAN. “The president is back at his New Jersey golf resort, bringing his taxpayer-paid golf tab to $142 million.” x Trump’s here at Bedminster, his...

President Trump ignited a firestorm of criticism following his comments Friday at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). After Trump explained, “I’d rather have the people stay” on the 3,500 person cruise ship anchored near San Francisco with 21 coronavirus cases “because I like the numbers being where they are,”...

The NewYorker’s Susan Glasser finds a single word to describe the Trump era that really isn’t about underpants gnomes, even if it applies to most Trumpian policies, such as they are. There must be one of those long German words for all that soul-sickening worry, right? Some tortured mouthful of...

That is a direct quote from a Republican strategist as reported two hours ago by Business Insider: “He's deteriorating in plain sight,” one Republican strategist who's in frequent contact with the White House told Insider on Friday. Some of the new concern is related to Trump’s continuing insistence on saying...

Donald Trump canceled his weekend trip to Poland in order to “monitor” Hurricane Dorian. Yesterday, Trump proved he listens intently to his weather briefings, claiming he’d never heard of a Category 5 hurricane before (four such storms have occurred while he’s played president). But despite the urgency, Trump managed to get...

Heckuva job, Clownie. Now, we all know it doesn’t matter in the slightest where Donald Trump happens to be as he “monitors” Hurricane Dorian. (As long as it’s nowhere near the nuclear football, that is.) If it were up to me, he’d spend the rest of his unnatural life at one...

You really can’t ask Donald Trump anything about world history — unless it’s which year and month Anna Nicole Smith appeared in Playboy — and expect a coherent answer. I’m guessing he’d be hard-pressed to identify which war he dodged, much less tell us anything about the history of Europe. So this...

Today, Sean Spicer declared that Assad was worse than Hitler, because the latter “didn't even sink to using chemical weapons”. That’s wrong for one really big, really obvious reason: the Holocaust. But even if we give Spicer a little more benefit than he deserves, and assume that he meant only...
