Re: Maria Butina - NRA's Back Door to Russia

I am pretty convinced that most news outlets have the same mistake in Ms. Butina’s name as we do. Her name is Mariia (with two i’s). The DoJ affidavit has those two i’s. Russian does this sometime when rendered in our alphabet. The world will not shake if we stick with what we have got, but TFB is u...

Re: Veterans on Patrol #OperationBackyardBrawl

I think it's more than SovCits. The postmodern view of reality (there is no objective reality; reality is a "social construct," and science is just another such) is now relatively pervasive in society, even if people have never heard the term. We've lost our ability to admit that we're wrong becaus...

Re: President Trump

George Will made points effectively in his “This sad, embarrassing wreck of a man.” However, I think the title is wrong. For Trump now to be a wreck implies that there was once a man to be wrecked. I think there has never been an adult man with knowledge and competence.

Re: Families Belong Together

It is clear thst the Trump administration intended for the separation of children and parents to be permanent. Their response to a judge’s order to reunite families shows that they had not designed a system for reunification. This may have been Trump’s intention. I think it more likely to have been ...

Re: President Trump

Andrew Sullivan’s current New York Magazine article is about Trump, Putin, and Trump’s soft spot for Russia. Sullivan says that Trump is unchanged from his past several decades. He has his likes and dislikes, which do not rise to the level of principles. He views nations as ethnic competitors. He di...

The caption on the photo of LaPierre and Butina says LaPierre is the former head of the NRA. I doubt that is right.

Re: President Trump

Writing about why Trump will never believe that Russia interfered in the 2016 election, Dahlia Lithwick makes a point that explains much of what I find so distressing about Trump: Donald Trump believes only what he wants to believe. Although Washington Republicans will surely continue to craft their...

Re: Transition 2016 and so forth

We probably get people who are more committed to Trump and less knowledgeable about the job. This decline in competence is noticeable. That matters in departments that have a job to do, such as Veterans and State.
