Russia giving Spain all it can handle. Score is 1-1 and a Spanish player has yet to score a goal.

Blast from the Past

He promoted ideologies that Snyder inventively describes as schizo-fascism: “actual fascists calling their opponents ‘fascists,’ blaming the Holocaust on the Jews, treating the Second World War as an argument for more violence.” Putin’s favored ideologist, Alexander Dugin, “could celebrate the victory of fascist in fascist language while condemning as ‘fascist’ his opponents.”

In this new schizo-fascism, homosexuals played the part assigned to Jews by the fascists of earlier eras. Democratic societies were branded by Russian TV as “homodictatorships.” When Ukrainians protested against faked elections and the murder of protesters, Russian TV told viewers, “The fact that the first and most zealous integrators [with the European Union] in Ukraine are sexual perverts has long been known.” Putin himself struck more macho poses and wore outfits more butch than all the stars of the Village People combined. In Snyder’s pithy phrase, "Putin was offering masculinity as an argument against democracy.”.

NSA is deleting the metadata for 685M phone calls that were turned over by phone companies since 2015. This, apparently, because of a "technical error" and that some calls were collected that weren't legally permitted to be collected.

I question the timing.

In essence it is breathtakingly simple: In order to justify repressive force and powers you have to create a situation for which repressive force and powers appear to be the only remedy.

Mussolini was surrounded by a hard core of sociopaths and one enduring theory about Matteotti’s murder is that they ordered it because they feared that Mussolini, now that he had legitimacy as a democratically elected leader, was flirting with the idea of accepting parliamentary constraints on absolute power.

It was always difficult to know with Mussolini how much his own deep-rooted megalomania was instrumental in his actions at any moment and how much the thugs around him influenced him by playing on his psyche. In this case, he rode out months of protests before making his move, late in 1924.

His main target was Florence. The city had become a hotbed of resistance to the fascists. Posters with pictures of Matteotti and the cry “We do not wish to be thought of as a race of slaves worthy only of being dominated and humiliated by violence and intimidation” appeared all over the city.

At the end of December, a force of 2,000 black-shirted fascist militia rampaged through Florence, smashing up the offices of an opposition newspaper and destroying its presses, hunting down and beating up lawyers and activists..

GUS

Yes the LEFT is full of love. Nothings says LOVE THE KIDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDIES, like selling parts and pieces, and Scalps and livers to the highest bidder, after stabbing the baby in the head.

Then when this SICK BARBARIC practice is discovered and OUTED, the LOVING LEFT including Ward, attack the person who EXPOSED them.

THE FULL COMMIE is a sick IDEOLOGY, and the FULL COMMIE is shyting it's collective PANT, because it is unraveling.

For 8 years the process of separating the kids--and often handing them over to traffickers didn't bother them. WOnder what changed? In 1996 when CLinton signed this into law it didn't bother them. What changed?

What changed is they need ammo to attack the President. THE FULL COMMIE is just that...THE FULL COMMIE. They are evil people, no values, no morals no principles, just lies ALL THE TIME.

Good morning, I might be inclined to consider Rosenstein a white hat except for his role helping Holder bury the Mikeran story with a sweetheart plea.

Think about this: The investigation of Russian racketeering in the American energy sector was the kind of spectacular success over which the FBI and Justice Department typically do a bells-n-whistles victory lap — the big self-congratulatory press conference followed by the media-intensive prosecutions . . . and, of course, more press conferences.
Here . . . crickets.

As the Hill reports, the Justice Department and FBI had little to say when Mikerin and his co-conspirators were arrested. They quietly negotiated guilty pleas that were announced with no fanfare just before Labor Day. It was arranged that Mikerin would be sentenced just before Christmas. All under the radar.

How desperate was the Obama Justice Department to plead the case out? Here, Rosenstein and Holder will have some explaining to do.

Mikerin was arrested on a complaint describing a racketeering scheme that stretched back to 2004 and included extortion, fraud, and money laundering. Yet he was permitted to plead guilty to a single count of money-laundering conspiracy.

Matthew 23

President Trump has tweeted that King Salman of Saudi Arabia has promised to increase Saudi oil production by 2 million barrels a day. Trump says he feels this is important because US gasoline prices are “too high.” Trump is aware that high gasoline prices have tracked since the 1970s with public disapproval of the party in power, and is probably afraid that going into the midterms with a high price at the pump will result in heavy Republican losses in congressional races.

King Salman, however, cannot save Trump from the oil markets, even if he really wanted to, which is doubtful.

As Reuters noted, although Saudi Arabia has a theoretical ability to produce 12 million barrels a day, it can’t just do so on a dime. It would take up to a year to ramp up production that much. Nor is there evidence of Saudi ability to produce at that level in the medium to long-term.

Moreover, Saudi Arabia is a member of OPEC (the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries), which has just set member quotas and asked members to increase production slightly. World production should go up about 700,000 barrels a day. That is all Trump can hope for..

Captain Hate,

Thank you for that article on Harlan Ellison. I may have accidentally been one of the people who was familiar with him first from his novels and short stories, as opposed to his screen-writing.

When I lived in West Berlin, I used to go to the base library and check out tons of science fiction. I think I read every science fiction book that they had (all nicely separated from regular fiction, for my convenience). I always thought he had a rather haunting style.

What a nice tribute from a friend!

CH,

Back in the day, I was a prolific SciFi reader. Found it was the best way to waste 5-7 hour flights and wait times between DC and SFO. Read a lot of Ellison. He did have an edge as you noted but it never seemed to interfere with reading him. No need to close the book and take a nap.

Now for a change of pace, I finally found the Twain quote, I remembered:

""Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is far better that you fear the media, for they will steal your HONOR. That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking who fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse.”
~~Mark Twain"

If this was a fair world, the GOP would be declared illegal and disbanded. It would have to start over without all of its corrupt members. It would be very small.

Funny how there seems to be no line Republicans will not cross in their quest for unlimited power. And how Democrats will not cross any line no matter how awful their opponents are. It might be more virtuous to be a Democrat but it comes at such a high cost.

The heated controversy over Trump's awful family separation policy has been like one of those bug-zapping lights people stick next to pools – it's attracted virtually every species of hypocrite in American public life.

The most conspicuous and ridiculous of these are the hand-over-heart never-Trump Republicans who – after decades of pushing vicious anti-immigrant rhetoric themselves – are now coming out of the woodwork to talk about how mistreatment of the undocumented is contrary to "our principles and values."

It's not easy to pick which wall-humping Republican's hug-an-immigrant statement is the worst, but one from Ted Cruz stands out. The proud champion of the basketball "ring" said:

"All of us who are seeing images of these children being pulled away from moms and dads in tears are horrified. This has to stop … We should keep children with their parents. Kids need their moms. They need their dads."

Ted Cruz was the guy who just two years ago ran for president with the plan of wiping the uninspiring Republican primary field of Jebs and Lindseys and Marcos by being the meanest of the lot on immigration.
