Trump calls Limbaugh to argue that murdering an Iranian general in Iraq at the invitation of the Iraqi government isn’t a war crime.

It’s demoralizing to see our southern border ignored in preference to bombing brown people. It’s confusing to hear the Trump threaten a nation we “freed” from a “dictator” when its people decide they’ve had enough of US military occupation. It’s enraging to imagine my son conscripted into a war on the other side of the planet when we’re facing an invasion here at home.

War in the Middle East

Last week, the meandering conversation of several men in the lunchroom stumbled into the first Gulf War. At the time, I interjected, “I’m so glad we sent our soldiers to the Middle East to help the Iraqis; life for them is so much better.”

I’m pleased to observe this week’s events have proven my hope justified.

Katie Hill Nonsense

Katie Hill has formally resigned her office as a Representative to Congress. She blames the nude photos posted at two news outlets for her downfall.

Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian successfully advocates for criminal justice reform at the White House. There she is, sitting between Jared and Ivanka. I guess a sex tape isn’t really that much of a problem in politics, despite Hill’s pose as victim.

I wish Hill’s husband good fortune in divorce court.

Alexander Vindman is a Jew

It’s just a coincidence. There’s nothing to see here.

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the National Security Council staffer set to deliver dramatic testimony confirming that President Donald Trump sought dirt on a political rival from Ukraine, is a Jewish refugee from that country when it was part of the Soviet Union.

Vindman left Ukraine in 1979 with his brothers after his mother died. They immigrated to New York, where his father lived.

Various sources allege Ukraine to be an “anti-Semitic” nation, despite it’s election of a Jew to the Presidency and to several other high elected offices, and the leadership of major Ukrainian businesses by Jews.

But it’s still a coincidence that Vindman opposes Trump’s efforts to force investigations of political corruption in Ukraine that may involve Joe Biden and other Americans. His Jewish ethnicity is entirely unrelated to his accusations against Trump.

Andrew Anglin Writes Truth

But my thing here is: I’m not exactly sure why this would be considered inappropriate.

I mean, we’re shooting little boys with puberty-blocker hormones to chemically sterilize them in advance of cutting their dicks off. The state is literally mandating it. A little threesome action is the virtual ideal of sexual innocence in this modern culture.

UPDATE: Katie Hill since resigned from Congress.

I never thought that my imperfections would be weaponized and used to try to destroy me and the community that I have loved for my entire life. For that, I am so incredibly sorry.”

This confuses me. To which imperfections does she refer? Is a bisexual female Congressional representative supposed to refrain from bisexual relationships? Or is the problem that she maintained a sexual relationship with a campaign staffer or Congressional staffer (like McCain)? Is the problem embarrassing nude photos? She looks healthy and fit. Smoking marijuana from a bong? Isn’t that mostly legal now?

Somebody please help me understand what offense drove her to resign. I can’t believe it would be shame, but that’s all I can imagine.
