More abuse of democrats in the West by the Kremlin regime #ERR 

Horrific atrocities in CAR where Russian mercenaries do what they do best. Disgusting. But "Wandel durch Handel" via @thedailybeast

Fox News sued for 'willfully and maliciously deceiving public' about the dangers of the coronavirus

A stunning, gobsmacking article: it's all far worse than even I, with my preternatural pessimism, could ever have imagined. The US is in genuinely serious, serious security trouble. As are we, America's allies.

I was just sent this with no attributable authorship but it is a fact for the history books.

Left out of most news of yesterday's terrorist act was that Belarus also illegally detained a student at Vilnius' European Humanities University. Sofia Sapega was traveling with Roman Protasevich. She was not allowed to travel on to Vilnius. Please RT.
