    Things are just not going well for Trump.  His pal Julian Assange has been arrested!  And Chelsea Manning is back in jail.  Add Paul Manafort and the Orange guy himself will make a fourth for bridge.

    And he still stinks!

    Great God Almighty,

    Trump stinks.

      My guess is that Assange either goes to prison, or receives a pardon and membership at Mar-A-Lago.

      By the way, V., you omitted the missing link in the evolution of this case, Roger Stone.

      I thought it ironic that Edward Snowden weighed in – from Russia – on the loss of freedom of the press. You cannot make this stuff up.

    WOTD from Mike Littwin: "Colorado Republican Party has come up with a plan…".

    Littwin knocks it out of the park. He deserves a larger podium:

    We all know George Santayana’s adage about those who cannot remember the past being condemned to repeat it. That doesn’t apply here. This past was 2018, last year. I remember, it was on all the calendars. I mean, how does a party forget losing every statewide race, both houses of the legislature, the governor’s seat, Mike Coffman’s seat, not to mention many of the recliner seats in houses across the Denver metro area?

    Not only do Republicans remember, they want you to know they remember. Which is why they have chosen Buck, of all people, to lead the party out of the wilderness.

    Forget Santayana. We’re in Marx (brothers?) territory now. History repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce.

    Oil Producers Are Burning Enough 'Waste' Gas to Power Every Home in Texas

    America’s hottest oil patch is producing so much natural gas that by the end of last year producers were burning off more than enough of the fuel to meet residential demand across the whole of Texas. The phenomenon has likely only intensified since then.

    Somewhere there’s a country where after a horrendous mass shooting it might be too late to prevent that one, . . . 

    . . . but that doesn’t mean it’ “too soon to talk about it” and also take some positive steps to prevent or limit the carnage of some future one(s).
