There are rumors that Kim is brain dead. It's weird that his sister has been spotted around more than ever lately--guess this explains why.

 

I saw Katy Tur tweeted and deleted (she said she deleted out of caution).

 

I'm seeing people celebrating this on Twitter but I feel like it could all go very very wrong. 

 

I know it sounds glib but I just hope you all stay safe.

It's floating around since I didn't even see Tur's social media and had no idea she had tweeted this. I wouldn't put it out there publicly either.

Pay attention to how N. Korea handles this. Republicans will do the same thing when Trump finally becomes incapacitated. We'll see more of the kids and Pence somebody will take over his Twitter and send out wildly offensive and crazy tweets meant to inflame and distract.

That McConnell "tell-all" book by his first wife would make for some interesting reading, I bet.

The cultists are flooding Twitter begging Jesse Ventura to run for President. 

 

I read that Biden did OK on Corden's show. After the Nancy Pelosi mess I couldn't watch, and I have a hard time watching any of his interviews to be honest, but hopefully it means he's becoming more comfortable oncamera again. 

 

As it at the moment the whole election rests on Trump, which is dangerous, but we have no real choice but to keep getting through and hoping there is even reliable voting available in November.

Yes, the United States is already in decline. Like many of us have been saying, this pandemic has exposed structural weaknesses that had been hiding in plain sight for decades.  At least other countries no longer bother to look to America for any kind of leadership, the terrible mismanagement of the U.S. response to COVID-19 has put a stamp on that aspect.

This is exactly what Putin wanted. The United States having damaged credibility and failures on display gives Russia an opportunity to step up to the front of the world stage. Not that Russia is fit to be on that stage at all, but they can influence smaller countries and possibility regain some of the power they had as the Soviet Union.
