Ukraine's president visits trenches amid tensions with Russia via @MailOnline 

Those Javelin anti-tank missiles sitting in storage in western Ukraine should be relocated to eastern Ukraine. #DeterrenceWorks .

I spoke/lectured/talked for five hours today on Zoom. I am completely exhausted.

Smart move by Biden and team to call Putin today.

Biden Administration to Impose Tough Sanctions on Russia


Trump obviously has no idea what words like facism and totalitarianism mean. To those who wrote that speech, shame on you. To those that cleared on this speech, shame on you. Perhaps the most un- American speech ever delivered by an American president, on the eve of July 4th.

You cannot be pro-life and pro-AR15 at the same time.

For those of us who study autocracies, including elections in autocracies, there were a lot of familiar messages, symbols, and methods on display this week at the #RNCConvention . THREAD

If you were as moved as I was by Ambassador Yovanovitch‘ s testimony today , retweet #BravoMasha  !

President Trump is a public servant. He works for us. Or least that's the way it used to be. No one -- not a governor, not a doctor, not a patient -- needs to show their appreciation in order for him to do his job & help them. (BTW, no one forced him to take this job.)

According to reporting including @MeetThePress  , Trump called Putin 6 times in 2 months - March 30th, April 9th, April 10th, April 12, May 7th, June 1 ! That would be a crazy number of calls to any foreign leader. But to Putin? What on earth were they discussing? So strange.

"C'mon man !" I loved it when Obama used that phrase when I worked for him.

Those who lied about the presidential election results for months deeply divided our country. Their hypocrisy now in calling for unity now is stunning.
