Obama’s Russia Misinformation and Other Comments

Neocon: Obama’s Russia Misinformation

“Barack Obama’s appearance at a conference on disinformation” makes us wonder “whether the former president set out to combat or contribute to deception.” Noah Rothman of Snark’s Commentary. Obama insisted he was towing Europe “back and forth to respond” to Russia’s 2014 Ukraine invasion and that “the Vladimir Putin he knew and was able to work with” was a different man. Either “Obama doesn’t remember his presidency very much, or he assumes you won’t.” His White House “opposed the passage of sweeping sanctions” like the Magnitsky Act and “never used them.” And the “Putin he knew” was the same man “who was involved in the assassination of critical journalists, who leveled Grozny, invaded Georgia and slaughtered innocents in Syria.” By “licensing” Putin’s “boldness,” Obama “made the world a more dangerous place.”

Election observation: Hispanics have ‘abandoned’ Dems.

“Recent polls suggest the rightward drift” of Hispanic voters in America “has continued since” the 2016 election, observes Alex Perez at Unherd, although “the first evidence of this political change was met with disbelief”. After the 2020 Black Lives Matter riots, “polls showed that Hispanics . . . opposed the protests,” while Democrats urged people to “kneel at the altar of the new religion of social justice.” And while “the Democrats’ socialist-tinged rhetoric became blatantly anti-American,” then-President Donald Trump “continued to offer an unabashedly pro-American approach.” And “the Democratic response to the pandemic” pushed Hispanics even further afield. The GOP should note that “even if Trump doesn’t run in 2024, his brand of republicanism is so popular with Hispanics that he will play a crucial role in the election.”

Trans woman: What I wish I knew when I was 19

“I now know that I wasn’t old enough to decide to have sex reassignment surgery at 19, Corinna Cohn confesses to the Washington Post. “I believed I would be more successful at finding love as a woman than as a man,” but some of her high school crushes were also gay. If I had expressed my interest, what would have happened?” Still: “Today I’ve come to terms with never finding a partner.” Most importantly: “I decided to make an irreversible change before I even started, my Understanding sexuality.” While “I might have switched after a few years of waiting,” she advises young people today, “Learning to adapt to your body is a common struggle. . . . Slow it down. You can still decide to make the change. But as you explore the world by inhabiting your body as it is, you may find that you love it more than you thought possible.”

Economist: Behind lower real wages

The economy has seen “the fastest job growth in nearly four decades”. notes Jason Furman of the Wall Street Journal, but “inflation-adjusted wages fall faster than they have in 40 years”. With prices up 8.5% in the 12 months to March and wages up just 5.6%, inflation-adjusted wages are down 2.7%. Worse, the “hot economy” can also threaten the “sustainability of job growth itself.” “Next time, let’s remember that it’s better to fuel the economy by putting logs on the fire one at a time, rather than starting them all at once.”

Election Strike: Oz Endorse Shocks Trumpies

That “Trump unexpectedly backed Mehmet Oz. . . better known as dr. Oz” for the Pennsylvania GOP Senate nomination “has left many dedicated Trump supporters perplexed.” reports Salena Zito of the Washington Examiner. Why “elect someone who hasn’t resonated with conservatives in such an important state on the Senate map?” Trump praised Oz’s “celebrity status, Harvard credentials, New York Times best-selling status, and praise for the former’s health.” Presidents”. But: “Interviews with Republican primary voters across the state, even those who consider themselves staunch Trump supporters, suggest they may not necessarily follow his lead.”
