Most presidents try to follow a consistent line of policy, philosophy, or both. Trump is a man of dots — scattershot moments connected only by Trump’s authorship of them.

Rich Lowry pays this lunatic. I stopped subscribing for such reason.s

“The Islamic Republic of Iran deeply regrets this disastrous mistake,” President Hassan Rouhani said, as Iran reversed its claims that mechanical failure was to blame.

Maybe Iran should stop fucking around and accept Trump's offer of peace. Imagine how the Progressive Left would scream in agony if Trump made peace with Iran after 40 years of hostility.

David Herring, brother of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, said he is "furious" to learn the Massachusetts Democrat called their father a janitor on the campaign trail.

I understand the brother's point, but I was a janitor for about 18 months before I went to college. Receiving the contempt that janitors take spurred me to go to college. Now I make low six-figures, manage 30 people, and have a net worth of about 1M. I treat janitors with respect.

There’s some evidence Democrats have lost ground with black voters.

"But even though Trump’s outreach to black voters is overwhelmingly tacky and ridiculous, it shouldn’t be dismissed out of hand. After all, Trump’s courting of white working-class voters is tacky and ridiculous, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t work."

How. Fucking. Insulting.

The federal prosecutor investigating the origins of the Russia inquiry is examining testimony by the former C.I.A. director John Brennan and seeking his communications records.

"Mr. Durham’s pursuit of Mr. Brennan’s records is certain to add to accusations that Mr. Trump is using the Justice Department to go after his perceived enemies. The president has long attacked Mr. Brennan as part of his narrative about a so-called deep state cabal of Obama administration officials who tried to sabotage his campaign, and Mr. Trump has held out Mr. Durham’s investigation as a potential avenue for proving those claims."

Their framing is getting weaker. It's no longer "conspiracy theory without evidence."

NYT doesn't want to get caught competently flat-footed again.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson called on Britons to put years of bitter divisions over the country's EU membership behind them as he vowed to use his resounding election victory to finally deliver Brexit next month. Johnson's ruling Conservatives won their best result for three decades on Thursday night after promising to get Britain out of the European Union on January 31, a new deadline set by Brussels. The snap general election turned into a re-run of the original 2016 EU membership referendum, whose outcome paralysed Britain's leaders and created divisions across society.

Well, the Remainers said they wanted a second referendum... LOL

Some federal law enforcement officials are warning of a chilling effect inside the FBI amid attacks by President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr over the bureau's handling of the Russia investigation.

When the FBI stops acting like an anti-democratic enemy of the people, we'll have no reason to criticize them. They simply need to return to their oaths and honor.

Former national security adviser John Bolton suggested that President Trump’s approach to U.S. policy on Turkey is motivated by personal or financial interests.

Bolton has talked himself out of a career. Even those who agree with him will never hire him in an administration. Put simply, nobody likes a rat.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Since taking office in January, Florida’s Republican governor has appointed a science officer, established a climate change czar and pledged to spend billions of dollars...

Great. Republicans don't listen to those who voted for them, but do bend the knee to the Twitteratti - all twelve of them. The Stupid Party.
