Bill Barr continues to get credulous journalists to tell fairy tales about how he bravely stood up to President Trump's worst instincts, without mentioning that he had an affirmative role in fostering the toxic brew that blew up on January 6.

While we're laughing at the abysmal OpSec of most of the people arrested in the January 6 attack thus far, let's remember that, to a significant extent, the people taking selfies and trophies from the Capitol building were largely the camouflage behind which more dangerous men appear to have hidden.

Greetings to all fans, whether you are scoring at home, or alone in isolation. It is pretty remarkable that the NFL has made it this far without blowing up from Covid. Yet here they are down to four games this weekend.

Nazi sympathizer Jack Posobiec and the President lawyer both seemed prepared to use the arrest of agent provocateur John Sullivan last night to blame the riots on Black Lives Matter. In the process, however, Rudy Giuliani appears to have tied the President, the Proud Boys, and the Pentagon together in the plot.

Rather than talking about how Donald Trump has done nothing to prevent follow-up terrorist attacks planned for the next few weeks, the President has, once again, gotten us to talk about what a victim he is.
