Former CIA director: Russia and China are collaborating


On Saturday, Axios reported that former CIA Director and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is warning Russia and China have formed a de facto alliance to destabilize the United States and threaten national security.

“What I consider two of our strongest adversaries are now working together to try to undermine stability in the United States of America,” said Panetta on “Axios on HBO.” “This is not like dealing with some kind of rogue nation.”

China’s intelligence services have been implicated in a number of cyberattacks on U.S. government agencies. Russia, meanwhile, was extensively involved in undermining the 2016 U.S. presidential election, with their efforts documented in detail by former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

Line of Duty series 4 and 5. Acorn. Well done all the way around. A bit of a challenge to follow the

plot twists, figuring out the forensics along the way—or not. But I like that it has narrative complexity and depicts a hierarchical, military-style, cut throat police culture, refreshing because it’s Brit. Lovely sense of paranoia pervades if you like that sort of thing.

We must #StopTheBans and ensure this choice remains between a woman and her doctor. https://t.co/J4FL9nQgol

Amash extended tweet on Mueller report and Barr's misrepresentation of it. Good read.

Trump's legal strategy to fight House Doomed to Fail


In a column for Politico, former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti explains that President Donald Trump and his legal team’s strategy to stonewall the Democrats and run out the clock by using the courts until after the election is backfiring spectacularly.

Trump couldn't stop Tillerson testifying, hah, hah. A hopeful development:


POC: A useful term for Whites, but not for

political discussions when making assumptions about positions, allegiances, and voting behaviors across non-white voting groups. And not so much for people of many different non-white identities. I wouldn’t use it with friends, would you?
