We’re over 50 days into the Russo-Ukrainian war. Now seemed like a good time to give an overview of the reality on the ground and speculate on where we are likely to go from here. I also try to clear up the tactical nuke issue. patreon.com/posts/50-days-of…

I know I’m usually the one handing out reading suggestions, but I need a new book, and none of the ones on my nightstand are doing it for me. Best book you’ve ever read, go!

Tuesday night massacre, UK version is bananas.
Woah, No 10 has sacked Michael Gove (via @SamCoatesSky ). Gove told the PM to resign earlier today and this the response

I certainly wasn’t suggesting anyone give him a pass. The only solid leadership I’ve seen from British Trump is in relation to Ukraine — I just hope that support continues with his successor.
Replying to @Angry_Staffer
Sorry that’s no reason to give him a pass. He is without doubt the most feckless PM in modern British history. His government will deliver one thing, the UK (or whatever is left if it) will be an irrelevant entity on the global stage

Boris Johnson is in serious trouble. Close to 30 resignations at this point, and another confidence vote expected within days (hours?). My only concern here is that — despite all his obvious faults — Johnson has shown good leadership and decisiveness in respect to Ukraine.

The story of the two-year-old who lost both of his parents in yesterday’s parading shooting has completely broken me.

“The Prime Minister needs a Solicitor General who can defend the course and culture set on his watch. I regret I no longer can.”
A third minister has just quit today. Alex Chalk, number two in attorney general’s office. Long said to be sure uncomfortable. How many more (if any) will go in the next 24hrs?

New: DoJ is suing Arizona over a new law that requires voters to prove their citizenship to vote in presidential elections or vote by mail in any election. The law is a "textbook violation" of a federal law, the National Voter Registration Act, the department says.

Literally every year. The Mall is the “official” fireworks show (and it’s fantastic), but the East side of DC in particular always shows out.
Everybody thinks the only light show is on the Mall. The view from our downtown DC condo tonight. Happy 4th!

At this point, I’ve seen several videos of the parade shooting. Couple things: 1. The “good guy with a gun” argument sucks. 2. Keep your head out of your phone in crowds. In a lethal force encounter, seconds matter. It took some people 30 rounds to realize someone was shooting.

Because I refuse to let domestic terrorist ruin my life? Or because I said it’s important to have a plan just in case? That’s common sense. If you’re at an event with a lot of people in today’s America, you should be cognizant of 1. The way(s) out 2. Possible cover/concealment

Ugh. A one day break from this bullshit would be nice. I’m not going to let the threat of violence keep me from enjoying fireworks tonight, but I would encourage everyone to always have a plan in the off chance that shit breaks bad at your location.
JUST IN: The Highland Park Fourth of July parade was suddenly halted when shots were fired about 10 minutes after the parade kicked off at 10 a.m. Monday, sending hundreds of people running for safety. bit.ly/3OUBc9K

Fact check: true If we don’t expand our majority in 2022, we might not get a free or fair election again. Vote accordingly.
Make no mistake: If Democrats expand their Senate majority in 2022, they will pack the Supreme Court.
