Feels good to step outside into the M Night Shyamalan permanent buzzing of the cicada plague then step onto the empty pandemic train again. Ah, fresh air!

Wearing my mask on the train because of my infectious enthusiasm
Ah, good to be back

History in the making. Likely means a chunk of the interior ministry, yes? The news on coexistence is not all bad!
Jabotinsky said of a future Israel: if the prime minister is Jewish his deputy PM should be Arab, and vice versa. This is the closest the political system has come so far to Jabo's vision of coalitional coexistence.
Virtually everything that's happening in world affairs relates to some or other of Jabotinsky's writing, and I hope some of this results in a revival of the work of one of the 20th century's most important political thinkers and literary translators.

Still not a single elected Democrat--not one--has criticized the squad directly over their recent rhetoric. Not a single one. I wish I could say Dems were insufficiently policing their caucus, but that would require any policing at all whatsoever.
As someone who was doxxed by neo-Nazis in a post that showed my wife with a target on her back for speaking out against Trump, you can understand why I can't even pretend to have sympathy for these Dem cowards.
Not sure there was a louder voice against Steve King in conservative national media. Endorsed removing MTG's committee assignments. 'Party over country' never made sense to me, still doesn't. So the 'collegiality' defense by Dems for not stepping up here won't play. Grow up.

Straight up incitement from the NY Times. An entire article claiming that the problem is Jews moving from one city to another city in the Jewish state.

Jewish lives are considered themselves a provocation. This is some mid-20th-century-Poland horsecaca
NYT and others were doing this before the Jersey City massacre too. Painting the appearance of visible Jews in the city as something nefarious. It was followed by violence--as expected.
There won't be any sort of protest at the NYT among staffers, I'm guessing.

Yup. But why would they? No one's pressuring them to defend Jewish rights. Progressives could make it happen in an instant if they wanted to. But if they wanted to, we wouldn't be in this position to begin with.
Additionally, there are no left of center groups within the tribe leaning on them to do so. Both the ADL and the main Democratic Jewish group are run by ex-Obama admin apparatchiks who are Democratic activists and are simply covering their party's flank.
Where would the pressure come from? Will movie stars pull productions out of New York? Bands about to begin touring again boycotting MSG? Cmon.

CNN admitting its role in the Covid coverup and then saying 'we won't do it again' is really an amazing moment that probably deserves more attention.
Found the state media!
The sexual harassment stuff is juicy too (hence it gets the headline) but I'm much more interested in the continued findings of Cuomo and his brother's coronavirus antics and CNN's refusal take seriously washingtonpost.com/politics/chris…

"The faction that replaced the party leadership and for whom the speaker of the House personally intervened to help them defeat more pro-Israel Democrats in the primary are criticizing Israel, but what does former Rep. Steve Israel say?" is a hell of a delusion.
If you think I'm kidding, I am absolutely not kidding:
