OL,

I'm surprised there aren't more strident attacks on Carlson due to him being a key player on Team Reality. After all, there is nothing more pernicious and insidious to the alt-reality flummery than reality itself.

The curious case of a map and a disappearing Taiwan minister at U.S. democracy summit

A video feed of a Taiwanese minister was cut during U.S. President Joe Biden's Summit for Democracy last week after a map in her slide presentation showed Taiwan in a different color to China, which claims the island as its own.

Sources familiar with the matter told Reuters that Friday's slide show by Taiwanese Digital Minister Audrey Tang caused consternation among U.S. officials after the map appeared in her video feed for about a minute.
The sources, who did not want to be identified due to the sensitivity of the matter, said the video feed showing Tang was cut during a panel discussion and replaced with audio only - at the behest of the White House.

David Ignatius is a CIA mouthpiece.

Narciso

his first big scoop was from robert ames, the fellow who befriended the black prince, the architect of munich, this became agents of innocence, tom rogers was a barely disguised ames,

the second book siro was more based from agency dissidents, who had been privy to behind the lines in central asia

Davod

Still a CIA mouthpiecs

From Ace:

Speaking of everything woke turning to shit: Steven Spielberg's unnecessary remake of West Side Story has bombed with a $10 million opening, below the quite modest projections of a $12-17 million opening.

Is it #Woke? Well... it's so #Woke that Spielberg decided to not use any English subtitles for all the Spanish spoken in the film, because the English subtitles would...

colonize...

the spoken Spanish.

Narciso

first of all they handed the script writing to tony kushner, has he evinced any understanding of latino culture second they cast ansel elgort as one of the leads, and he's probably the most famous?

jimmyk

The reviews I saw weren't bad, but I no longer trust reviewers, who tend be woke media types. The audience ratings are more reliable.

Can you think of any remake that wasn’t a dud.

MissMarple2

Regarding Bret Baier:

I am positive he engineered Megyn Kelly’s disaster and departure from Fox. Before the first debate he was bragging on air about how he and Megyn had been rehearsing questions. Once she crashed and burned against Trump and there was all the uproar, he said nothing to defend her and was very quiet. After she was gone, he got her spot. Voila!

Melinda

And it worked with his cool counsel to Prissy.

MissMarple2

Bair had a motive: health insurance. He had twin boys and one needed extensive care. This was right after Obamacare had been passed and there was no way any other network was going to hire him and pay the exorbitant cost, let alone the fact that he has little screen appeal or personality.

Motive, method, and money. He is guilty.

New York mask mandate in effect, but some counties won’t enforce it.

Quite a few. Hochul left it up to the county health people to enforce. Some county executives say their health depts. already have enough to do.

More likely is that they just see it as an unpopular mandate.

A tornado expert explains why last week’s twisters were so devastating
The science behind tornadoes is still evolving

I remember watching "Storm Chasers" a decade ago on TV with the guys with a tank-like vehicle trying to collect data from inside a tornado.

Hurricane prediction is far more advanced than tornado prediction. We've been able to study hurricanes for days at a time for decades. Tornadoes pop up where they choose and disappear before enough data can be collected.

I *love* how last night's big coordinated-with-media reveal was that there was definitely no insurrection, but there were people texting POTUS folks saying "this is bad, say something." And then POTUS saying something (and getting banned). Some real Columbos up there on the Hill.

Neo

“Bonchie,” a blogger at RedState, summarized conservative reaction to Cheney’s speech and the released Meadows texts:

Are we to believe that Donald Trump orchestrated “what happened on January 6th” but didn’t let his own son in on it? Or that Trump didn’t share his plans with any of his closest confidantes in the media? That belabors belief, especially since Meadows himself responded to those texts in agreement, noting that he was coordinating with the president on how to respond.

It is abundantly clear at this point that whatever you think of Donald Trump, what happened on January 6th was as much a surprise to him as anyone else. The idea that he hatched and led some master plan in an attempt to seize power and remain in office never made any sense given what we know. Besides, it makes even less sense when you consider that it…didn’t happen. Normally, when you want to enact a coup, you actually, you know, enact a coup. Instead, Trump denounced what occurred, even if it was a few hours later than some would have liked. He then left the White House without any objections.
