Understand. Brittany Griner is now in a better position than she was two days ago. Putin was going to get his kangaroo-court conviction and was going to bask in his opportunity to humiliate us. Nine years was about what I and anyone else familiar with the Russian “justice” system expected. OK. That’s done. Now the U.S. and Russia can get serious about a prisoner exchange. Already Friday morning (it’s 6:12 a.m. as I write), Russia has expressed interest in doing a swap. There is now a moderate to good chance we can get both Griner and Paul Whelan home.
So Trump attorneys are now speaking directly to federal prosecutors, and vice versa. Gee, wonder what they’re talking about. Hot ‘nuff fawya?
Kyrsten Sinema wouldn’t still go Lucy and pull the football away as Biden’s right foot approaches the ball, would she? Pardon my lingering skepticism.
Kari Lake has won the Arizona GOP gubernatorial nomination. That’s depressing. She knows it’s all a lie. But she lies. And she continues to lie. And lying is her platform. Lying is her stump speech.
All respect to soon-to-be-former Michigan Congressman Peter Meijer. He was one of the Republicans who followed his conscience, and voted to impeach Trump. It cost him his primary race and thus his seat. How did he handle it? He went out of his way to congratulate his opponent, was gracious and measured in defeat and blamed no one else. That’s a man. I hope he achieves national prominence. His is a voice that should be heard.
BTW. Meijer may have lost in part because of Dems’ diabolical and unethical decision to pour money into his opponent’s campaign. Disgusting. And anything but patriotic.
