End of the Line?

In case you have not seen this yet, the following is from Fox News (!)

You know that this was not aired solely on the impetus of Shepard Smith.  This is absolutely beyond anything we could have expected from a doctrinaire Republica news outlet like Fox News.

I see that this morning the Republicans are enlisting right wing judges to try to force electors to cast their votes the way the Republican party wants, despite the clear intent of the writers of the Constitution.  In the unlikely situation where electors actually try to do the right thing, Conservatives will be there every inch of the way, trying to stop them.

Any Republican administration is starting under a cloud now. This is gonna be a weird 4 years. Thx for that clip.

Trump has already said that he is smarter than the generals. Now, I assume he thinks that he is smarter than the intelligence community too. He must have a very low opinion of both the generals and the CIA since most of the works knows that he is dumber than a rock.

The government of my country - a conservative one - has initiated a foreign policy white paper for the first time since 2003, when the Iraq war began. The purpose of this is to establish core imperatives on how the country conducts itself with regard to national security. This takes some time. There was some circling around the precise reason for the timing and it wasn't really spelt out... but it's obvious: our most important ally is on the edge of an abyss. Its sovereignty has been compromised. A person of no rational political inclination, poor intellect, distrust of essential institutions, possessed of a severely disordered personality is to occupy the White House. This goes back to what I wrote the other week: countries around the world are reviewing their assumptions. They have no choice. And this bad for America because it means de facto American leadership of the free world, and trust in it, is quietly collapsing. A hopeful assumption would be that it returns. The contingency is if it does not.
