This article effectively demolishes a lot of the Russian propaganda and spin uncritically repeated in this country by MAGATS (Make America Great Again Trumpers) who side with Putin mainly because President Biden has opposed his aggression and they want President Biden to fail at everything. Party over country again.

A dose of reality on Russian TV.
Putin partisans angrily reject the voice of reason, but in this discussion, Boris Nadezhdin dared to speak the truth.
Just another day, just another school masacre by a maniac with assault weapons.
Nothing we can do.
It is the blood price we must pay to keep us safe from tyranny. Right?
When you are deep into your “thoughts and prayers,” try thinking why it is that we are so exceptional that we need to allow the slaughter of children to keep our country safe. Other countries don’t. Why do we?
GOP has a Policy Problem
In a nutshell, almost all the right-wing “anti-woke” and culture-war policies being pushed in GOP circles are decidedly unpopular outside of the GOP bubble. The only exception is the proposition that transgender women should not be allowed to compete in women’s sports. On that, most people apply common sense.
The focus of the following article is the well-publicized “anti-woke” policies pushed by Governor DeSantis to curry favor with MAGA voters. It is a recurring GOP problem writ large – what it takes to get a Republican nomination is poison for the General election.
DeSantis is currently about 15 points behind the criminal Trump among likely GOP voters, so all of his “anti-woke” pandering is yielding very little but future problems. Sad. 😢
Where were you on 9/11?
That is a question any American who was an adult in 2001 can easily remember. Except for Ron DeSantis. It is not convenient for him to say he was teaching in a pricey private school that morning. So he hems and haws when asked that simple question. Do we want a President who has not got the honesty to simply tell the truth? We tried that with Donald Trump. It went very poorly.
With friends like Russia who needs enemies?
Chinese investigators are on their way to the Central African Republic to determine if it was the Wagner Group who slaughtered Chinese citizens working in a mine. Local people have made a very compelling case that it was. Seems Russians are using Wagner Group force to ensure that only Russian can operate mines in that country.
China does not promise weapons
The one thing Putin desperately needs from China he is not going to get. China is not stupid.
Still a mystery.
Who sabotaged the Nordstream pipelines?
The answer is We do not know.
However, we do know that some of the theories and claims that have been made do not stand up to the available evidence. A stand-out among these debunked claims is the story by Seymour Hersh that it was an American operation using Norwegian vessels. Wired describes the work of the independent people using available data sources to investigate the claims.
Typical “Conservative” Speaks Up.
If cherry-picked nuts on Tik-Tok are going to be representing the Left I nominate this broadcaster as a fine exemplar of modern conservative thinking.
Urging the execution of public figures is an abuse of First Amendment rights and ought to be a criminal offense.
By the way, Barack Obama was born in 1961. He was two when JFK was murdered. But don’t let that get in the way of a juicy conspiracy theory.
Is being anti-woke a winner?
Maybe it is dying of hyperbole and silly overuse?
