Despite every aspect of the nationwide psyop falling apart over the course of the last four years, the collusion hoax was still largely successful. Four-in-five Americans with an opinion think the Russians have their heavy thumbs positioned to press hard on the electoral scales in November: A couple of things potentially check that dim view...

The following table shows the percentages of Americans who express a very/somewhat favorable opinion of Russian president Vladimir Putin. "Not sure" responses, constituting 19% of the total, are excluded so that the residual values represent the percentages of people who express a very/somewhat unfavorable opinion of him: The familiar pattern of white Democrats on the...

First the percentages of Americans who believe Russia interfered in the 2016 US presidential election and then the percentages of Americans who think the US has ever interfered with an election in any other country (!). Belief in Soviet sabotage: Belief in American interference:
Nobody wanted--needed!--it to be true more than white liberals did: A few of the most zealous believers will cling to the attendant statement that while two years, a bazillion dollars, and a gazillion investigatory man-hours couldn't turn up a shred of evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia, the orange man hasn't been formally exonerated...

Z-Man goes off the deep end, claiming that neoconservatism--"an ethnocentric death cult"--is a movement possessed by and obsessed with an ancestral hatred of Russia: Granted, as has been shown here, there may have been some truth to that in the past, when the Ashkenazim in question had just escaped Soviet persecution and their adopted homeland--or...

Anatoly Karlin assumes the herculean task of quantifying the JQ (Z-Man recently did the same). The first thing Karlin tackles is whether or not Jews tend to be "more loyal to Israel than [this country/to the countries they live in]". From nearly its inception through the mid-nineties, the GSS asked respondents how much they like... Read More
An understandably exacerbated Dan: My sentiments being in general agreement with Dan's, it must be pointed out that sanctions--at least against the new axis of evil--are populist! From Reuters-Ipsos polling, the percentages of Americans, by partisan affiliation, who support and who oppose sanctions on North Korea, Russia, and Iran. The balance of respondents said they...

The Fraudulent News Network gets caught admitting the putative Putin-Trump connection is "bullshit" and a "witch hunt" that mendaciously garners big ratings:
Agnostic: Perspicacious as usual. Trying to punch at the head of this thing is going to be futile. Better to sow dissension further down the ranks. I sent the following to both my senators and my house representative. Feel free to cut and paste the same to send to yours. Click here for senators (choose... Read More
It's time for a new Anti-Imperialist League that is as ideologically and politically diverse as the one that opposed America's experiment in the Philippines over a century ago. It included bedfellows as strange as railroad magnate Andrew Carnegie and labor leader Samuel Gompers. There is a bipartisan Establishment effort to reignite the cold war with... Read More
Some immediate questions and observations about the BuzzFeed article alleging Trump's "deep ties" to Russia follow. - The dossier reports that Trump was offered several sweetheart real estate deals inside Russia but elected not to capitalize on any of them: This is excerpted verbatim. Notice how clunky the sentence above is. The supposed source is... Read More
Donald Trump mixes owning the insult and agreeing and amplifying with a heavy dose of trolling the hell out of the Cathedral: Many on the Trump Train are understandably concerned the new president's Achilles' heel will be a desire for media adoration. He's said to keep copies in Trump Tower of just about everything in... Read More
It's worth remembering that the Obama administration was actively making foreign policy concessions to Ecuador in an attempt to get that country to influence the outcome of the presidential election: It's an administration just trying to do what's in its own best interests, of course:
