Dragnet!

 


Friends, the DOJ isn't messing around.  In case you haven't heard, Trump isn't the only ""right-winger" to fall victim to one of their raids.  Many of his high-level supporters and aides have also been targeted.  The Justice Department appears to trying to assemble a case that Trumpers were conspiring to overturn the election results in late 2020 and early 2021.  Now, I have to wonder, will the DOJ also target all those Democrats who were trying to cajole Trump electors into switching their votes in 2016/2017?  I mean, that would seem to be "anti-democratic" too, no?  No!  Of course it wasn't.  Only "election interference" by Putinists and Trumplicans is worthy of DOJ scrutiny.  And don't be suprised if federal prosecutors put on some show trials either.  These people have decided to go for broke.

In other news, "equity" quotas are becoming more and more common, and the NASDAQ stock exchange is now trying to force them on corporate boards across this country (but not overseas -- that would be high-handed!).  Make no mistake: quotas are back in fashion, and if we don't get on top of this problem soon they will be determining winners and losers in every phase of endeavor.  That's a scary, and profoundly un-American, thought.

Don't look now, but changes are afoot at CNN, and "progressives" are not amused.  I suspect this article exaggerates the "objectivity" of CNN in its current incarnation, but any movement back to the political center would be a welcome change from the network's relentless Trump-bashing.

The arrogance of leftists knows no bounds.  I probably don't need to tell YOU that.  Nonetheless, look at the self-adulation that Charlie Crist is engaging in as part of his campaign to unseat Gov. Ron DeSantis in Florida.  Crist isn't just a blowhard -- he's a blasphemer!

Finally, while the fog of war may becloud our ability to perceive correctly everything that's now happening on the battlefield in Ukraine, there's no denying that Russia has been pushed back in some areas.  One wonders what the Russian response will be...  Nuke 'em all and let the ghost of Karl Marx sort 'em out?  We shall see.

  1. Dr. Waddy from Jack: The "american" left is scared senseless of President Trump and is, I fully agree, going for broke and they may well get just that in the election, to their profound disadvantage.They are tormented by their frustrated emotions and were sure to give in at some perhaps unfavorable time and show us all of what presumption and malice they are composed!

  2. Dr. Waddy from Jack: So the "american" left is upset about a very possible turn of CNN away from the left's totalitarian screed and its obvious intent to destroy America. Pore dears! But ya gotta give ol' slick willy lotsa credit. He 's taught them well in the art of preempting issues. When they ruled the MSM they laughed off their blatant bias. Now that a significant network may well be moving toward balance they shocked shocke

  4. Dr.Waddy from Jack: I am finding CNN occasionally palateable at times and ihope it bodes an ever increasing tide of public revulsion to the sneering , disingenuous radical rump.

  5. Dr. Waddy from Jack: As the progress of the Ukraine war has been so astonishing I think myself discredited from plausibly predicting its future on the battlefield. But maybe its afterword?. Supposing Ukraine drives the bear back to its borders.? I think Putin would fall, especially if he demonstrates intent to use nukes. But what about what I have maintained is a visceral Russian resolve to keep Ukraine out of Nato.? Perhaps this experience, especially Sweden and Finland joining Nato will convince Russia that nuclear offense is the only way to prosecute this deeply held determination. What then?

  6. Jack, if YOU find the "new" CNN vaguely tolerable, then there's hope for us all!!! Their brand always used to be based on professionalism and objectivity. In the Trump era they decided to throw all that away. Can they get it back? Not easily, I'd wager. Trust, once forfeited, is seldom regained.

    Your speculations about Russian use of nukes is a bit premature, I would say. Russia has many more conventional cards to play before it has to play its "trump", so to speak.

  7. Dr. Waddy from Jack: But I gotta wonder, what conventional force does he have left? His standing army may have been beaten.I would guess that he has made extensive use of special forces. A conscript army would take a long time to train even minimally.A tighter blockade? Perhaps; even an allout nuke naval fight with Nato could be fought without nuke land targets. A massive air onslaught? US supplied land targeted missiles have played unshirted hell the Rus. Good chance our anti air missiles would be very effective.

  8. Oh, I suspect Russia has more up its sleeve, but you're right that it might take months or even years to bring it to bear... Does Putin have that kind of patience? Does the West, for that matter?
