The Stupid. It Burns.


Donald Trump has done more to hobble Vladimir Putin’s ability to act on the world stage than any of his predecessors. For example, Trump’s favorable treatment of fracking has kept the prices of oil and natural gas down, devastating Russia’s income as an oil exporter and severely truncating Putin’s cash flow. It’s the Democrats who espouse policies which are more favorable to Russia’s interests.

So the New York Times ran this yesterday—

That “warning” was supposedly contained in an intelligence briefing. If our intelligence agencies really think that Vladimir Putin would act so stupidly against his own interests as to try to interfere in the 2020 election in Trump’s favor, then it’s time for a top-to-bottom review of what’s going on in Spookville. Trump’s appointment of Richard Grenell as acting Director of National Intelligence looks like a pretty good move.

Note to the Times: The Russian Collusion Hoax failed last year.

The BBC’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day


The 31st of January, 2020—the day for Brexit.

Also, the day that the BBC is having to report the apparent collapse of the House Impeachment Hoax. (Assuming Senator Alexander holds firm.)

Our betters seem to be having the worst of it on both sides of the Atlantic today.

I think I’ll go get another cup of coffee and put a bag of popcorn in the microwave.
