Overconfident idiots

"Your Man in the Public Gallery – Assange Hearing Day 8" (Murray) (see also).  Two strong witnesses for Assange.  Of course, the fix is in, so it doesn't matter.  Lewis isn't really up to par as a barrister (he allows his emotions to get the better of him on cross, which lead to horrible technique, closer to crazed hectoring rather than finding weaknesses), and the CIA may decide to kill him after the proceedings, though their inevitable 'win' handed to them on a silver platter by the 'judge' and appeal courts may make them less salty.

China-Iran, now Russia-Syria, the rest of the world continues to react to the collapse of the Empire:  "Russia defies US Sanctions, presses Syria on Long Term Trade, Investment deal for Energy" (Cole).

I believe Assholia is completely doomed to turn into a complete shithole dystopia, or rather, more of a complete shithole dystopia.  Nevertheless, there is an election coming up, and a chance to slow the rate of acceleration into the abyss.  The only possible sane voting strategy is Trump for President, and control of both houses of Congress to the Democrats.  Biden is not a possible option, not even close, and full control of Congress should be able to assist with the worst aspects of Trump (assuming you can get the Democrats to actually do their jobs, admittedly an unlikely prospect).  Then hope that Soros doesn't pay one of his goons to kill Tucker before 2024.

Biden is, and has always been, a jerk, but he has significantly polished off the rough edges.  These old speeches are very enlightening.  I actually find it surprising that he didn't know enough to tone it down back in the day, but he was really speaking to the biggest assholes in Assholia (come to think about it, that's still the plan).

Tweet (Jarrett Blanc):
"Well this is one hell of a line: "Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, is quoted by Woodward as saying, 'The most dangerous people around the president are overconfident idiots.'”"
