Tuesday Links - 24 May

The Other McCain starts us off with a story of self-defense. Texas Armed Robber Killed by Delicious Fried Chicken and Well-Aimed Gunfire

Mainly, though, it was the gunfire:

Glen Greenwald - CNN's New "Reporter," Natasha Bertrand, is a Deranged Conspiracy Theorist and Scandal-Plagued CIA Propagandist

The most important axiom for understanding how the U.S. corporate media functions is that there is never accountability for those who serve as propagandists for the U.S. security state. The opposite is true: the more aggressively and recklessly you spread CIA narratives or pro-war manipulation, the more rewarded you will be in that world.

Again from The Other McCain - Liberals Want Ukraine to Negotiate?

Meanwhile, however, the liberal Surrender Caucus has made its presence known.

The Feral Irishman - On Mom and Dad.... On dealing with the realities of aging parents. I'm not sure why I want to include this post. Maybe it is because I have lost both of my parents to protracted illnesses, and it touches a memory.

The National Pulse - Wuhan Lab Publishes Study Manipulating H7N9 Virus To Be More Lethal.

The paper follows continued revelations about the Wuhan Institute of Virology engaging in “gain of function” research with U.S. taxpayer funds from Fauci’s National Institutes of Health (NIH) agency.

Coffee or Die - The Story of Denys Antipov, a Fallen Ukrainian Soldier

When Russia invaded his homeland again, Antipov never made a deliberate decision to go back to war. The truth is, there was only one path his life could take by then. His country was under attack, and it was his duty to defend it. That’s the way he saw it. Going to war was simple arithmetic, gravity for his soul. Simple as that.

Antipov resumed active-duty service after the Feb. 24 invasion. He regained his previous rank of first lieutenant and became the leader of an assault platoon in the 95th Airborne Assault Brigade.

Vodka Pundit - Even Democrats Are Getting Sick of Presidentish Joe Biden

Presidentish Joe Biden keeps setting new records. Record gas prices, record inflation rates, record wage losses.

And now a new record-low approval rating, even among Democrats

Victory Girls - Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Really Hates Christians

If you’re a Christian who believes that abortion is immoral, then Alexandria Ocasio Cortez thinks you should just shut up.

Again from The Other McCain - The Fresh Prince of Foxborough? Philadelphia a through the eyes of Jonnu Smith, who recently signed as a free agent with the New England Patriots.

Wow. Imagine if that was your hometown. What is going on in Philadelphia, to turn it into such a wretched hive of scum and villainy? The homicide total so far this year is 180 in “Killadelphia,” meaning that the city’s averaging about one homicide a day, but nobody seems to consider this an emergency, and Congress is sending billions to Ukraine.

Flopping Aces - Is it Wrong to Dox New York Times Reporters and Call Brian Stelter a Potato? Changes in American politics over 20 years, as seen thru the eyes on one man.

Up until a few years ago I would have opposed each of these actions. Now, at best I’m shrugging my shoulders with a “Meh”, and at worst I’m pointing and saluting like Nelson Muntz. How did we get here? Have I morphed into some frothing at the mouth Ultra Maga loon that Grandpa Sponge Brain S*** Pants1 sees as an existential threat to his crackhead son’s son’s perma grift, or did something else change? A fair question, and let’s dive in.
