The guys who write the snarky little parentheticals in the CNN chyrons are at it again — and they have been unleashed with a vengeance: .@CNN not pulling any punches tonight — Natasha Bertrand (@NatashaBertrand) February 21, 2018 I’ll save you the click.

As most people following politics know, there’s an obscure law called the Logan Act which makes it a crime for unauthorized people to conduct foreign policy with certain governments under specified circumstances.

It is the first Sunday in Lent. The title of today’s cantata is “Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott” (A Mighty Fortress Is Our God). The cantata was written for Reformation Day, but that won’t fall on a Sunday until 2021, and I can’t wait that long to give you one of Bach’s best-loved cantatas. […]

Who Is Indicted Russian Oligarch Yevgeny Prigozhin, and What Are His Connections to Putin?

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 23:45:58 +0000

One of the key figures indicted by a grand jury in the Russia collusion investigation today is Yevgeny Prigozhin, the so-called “chef to Putin.” Who is this fellow, and what connections does he have to the Russian government, if any? The question is important, because there are no specific allegations in the indictment showing that […]

Facebook Caves to Putin Censorship — With Bonus COLLUSION Connection!

If you don’t have your head up Donald Trump’s rear end, you know that Vladimir Putin, while nominally an elected official, is actually a feared dictator who censors his opposition (and, if he deems it necessary, kills them).
