There isn't any nuance to be had on the Churchill 'hero or villain' debate. His many crimes were not expiated for his actions in WW2. He didn’t fight fascism he fought to try and save the British Empire.
People arguing that the FBI was right to plot a 25th Amendment removal scheme against Trump because he was morally incapacitated, rather than physically incapacitated: You really want the FBI making autonomous decisions about the moral character of the president? Are you insane?
I’m running for President to end our regime change wars, work to end new Cold War, & walk us back from the abyss of nuclear war. We face greater risk of nuclear catastrophe now more than ever. I’m introducing a bill to stop Trump from scrapping INF treaty & sparking new arms race
Valentine’s Day made it easy to mark the anniversary of the Sino-Soviet Friendship Treaty of 1950 with dripping irony. And we were smugly sure they would always be enemies. Russia and China are now de facto allies. A geo-political sea change with immense implications.
An easy way for the Democrats & media partisans complaining about this conclusion from Burr’s bipartisan inquiry would be to respond:
“Actually, we do have factual evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia."
Spoiler: they can’t.

Response to Bolton's “New” Africa Strategy w/ @Netfafree
We discuss Bolton's announcement of the Trump administration's "new" Africa strategy, history of US imperialism in Africa, the role of AFRICOM, and how the continent is overlooked in activist circles
NOW: Eliot Engel is chairing hearing giving Elliott Abrams a forum for propaganda on Venezuela. Engel threatened to clear hearing room of members of the public bca few people stood up asking questions he's not asking about Abrams' murderous record, citing the need for "democracy"

Moore misses the point. Dems don’t want resolution of Russiagate. They want to use it to substitute for fighting for their voters. They want to draw it out as long as possible and run against Vladimir Putin.

Dems must quit saying they’re waiting 4 the “Mueller Report” like Moses is making a delivery. There may not be a “report.” He may not have Trump’s fingerprints on actual crimes. If Mueller can’t deliver on Trump, Dems’ll be backed into a corner cause Trump will’ve been “cleared.”
