Snapshot! Three weeks to go, with fingers crossed!

Mister Trump's (still possible) War: Within the past week, we read an essay by Tom Nichols which we thought was almost completely undiscerning.

We can't recall what the essay was about. We can't recall where we read it. We're still battling with our computer, so we don't plan to seek it out now.

That said, we just clicked over to The Atlantic and we found this new essay by Nichols. Based on the headlines atop his piece, he's thinking about the potential disaster we've long been warned about:

Trump Could Still Start a Last-Ditch War With Iran
A final grand distraction before the president is forced to relinquish his office is a real danger that deserves serious attention.

Those are the gentleman's headlines. Highly disconsolate major experts have warned us about such possibilities over the past several years.

For ourselves, we breathed a substantial sigh of relief when Trump stood down from his threat to undermine the Covid relief deal. Based on that behavior, it seemed to us that Trump may not be planning, like Samson of old, to pull the temple down around him on his way out the door.

We retain that sense from the way Trump, like Achilles before him, chose to beat back his great anger. That said, disastrous behavior could still occur—or at least, so says Nichols in this piece, as he discusses his fears. 

Given the fact that no one is, we don't regard Nichols as a seer. That doesn't mean that Nichols is wrong about this point of concern.

Nichols says this possibility "deserves serious discussion." Alas! The upper-end press corps agreed, long ago, that major aspects of our horrible ongoing situation simply cannot be discussed. 

Repeat: Large parts of this matter cannot be discussed, under terms of Hard Pundit Law! 

For ourselves, we breathed a significant sigh of relief when Trump sighed the Covid relief deal. We offer this as another snapshot, delivered right here at year's end.

  1. Who is saying that Iran cannot be discussed? No one.

    Trump is too busy golfing and trying to overturn the election. Iran knows that a new president will be in office soon. No one is going to start hostilities.

    Somerby is being an idiot. This is the kind of drivel someone writes when they are being paid by the word.

    Perhaps with a little help from Glenn you're still capable of fighting liberal-hitlerian zombification inside your head, dear Bob.

    Or perhaps not...

  3. ‘Nichols says this possibility "deserves serious discussion."’

    You really shouldn’t put something in quotes if the person didn’t actually say it.

  10. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
