At The Intersection of Madness and Reality, Rippa hears from a few friends on the left. Seems they doubt that Russia hacked the elections. That’s because Hillary was awful, and it’s just an excuse, and intelligence agencies say Russia interfered and you can’t trust government, and the nomination was stolen from Bernie, and Bernie would have won. Same as the right but for reasons most of which are different. So Rippa gets irritated and reviews the truth.
Vincent at A Wayfarer’s Notes knows how to fight terrorists. Seems that, as a kid, he was impressed as could be by a British Major who served in a fight against a communist insurgency in Malaysia in 1954. Since terrorists hid in villages, collectively punishing all those villagers eventually forced information about the insurgents. So, harsh collective punishment against residents of whatever areas terrorists find to hide will work against religious terrorists as well. Well, yeah. What could go wrong?
