A week in review.
The really scary part is these quotes are from only one week. Not an annual list. Hell, even monthly would make me feel a little better. Great stuff!
“In general, I feel like they have been treated, from the bottom guy all the way to Trump, very, very differently than a normal person would.” — MSNBC’s Joy Ann Reid
She's right, just not in the way she thinks she right. They have been persecuted and prosecuted much harder than a normal person.
I couldn't believe that Psaski said that.....you're not in the White House Press Room where nobody will call you out on your bullshit, Jen!!
Thanks for opening up the rabbit hole. But seriously, great list
Love this! I mean, ya just gotta laugh at the lunacy of it all. Seeing so much of it compiled into a list...it makes me wonder if the object of the game isn’t to desensitize us to a world gone mad where anything and everything goes. Seems no one is even trying to be covert about the inversion and gaslighting.
You come up with such great stuff.
As we read during the week, sometimes we miss so much...but you seem to find all the important info.
FYI -- Scott Ritter on Prigozhin’s death, BRICS new members, and more -- https://rokfin.com/stream/38244
Scott hypothesis is that plane (Wagner top leaders arrived from Mali) was full of various personnel arms and ammunition – which accidentally exploded – all other hypotheses are illogical and unlikely)
Another great installment of “Insanity This Week”.
Thanks for putting the Lahaina situation on the list. I notice that after the count of fatalities topped 100, the count was abruptly shut down. Do they think we will forget? Do they understand that it is impossible to sell this tragedy as the result of climate change?
Great stuff this week. I highly recommend the Walter Kirn interview you linked to. Without you I don't think I'd have found it.
Taibbi is so funny and Aaron is spot on, as usual. J6 is harrowing. I'm intrigued by Saving the Self in the Age of the Selfie.
I think Tim Dillon had the better characterization of Kamala Harris, he said she speaks in "gypsy curses".
What a wonderful treat to find in my mailbox!
Brad, a thought about the Ukraine situation and US wars in general since WWII:
We have all heard the idea that the Ukraine situation is just like Munich- if we don’t stop Putin now, he will try to take over Europe, just like Hitler in 1939!
Hurler’s blitzkrieg overran most of Europe in what- 6 or 8 weeks? Clearly Purim’s situation is radically different. A year and a half in, they are fighting of yards of territory. No blitzkrieg here, and a false analogy to Munich.
The only “victory” the US can claim in all the post-WWII conflicts is the Cold War. The one where Reagan employed the idea of an actual homeland defense (Star Wars), and diplomacy and rhetoric to fight the battle. Not one of these wars to “save the world for democracy” has done a thing to improve the standing of the US, either at home or abroad. In fact, they have done the opposite.
How anybody can look at the neocon ideas as advancing American strength is really hard to fathom. All of the actual historical evidence says otherwise.
FauxQi and taylor lorenz = demons in meat suits. My skin crawls and my blood pressure goes up at the mention or sight of their names. 😡🤬🤢🤮😡🤬🤢🤮😡🤬🤢🤮
