Judge Thomas Hardiman: Miss Congeniality

February 3, 2017

The suspense is over: President Donald Trump named Federal Appellate Judge Neil Gorsuch as “Man Most Likely to Be Cast as a Supreme Court Justice in a TV Movie.” “I have selected an individual whose qualities define — really, and I mean closely define — what we’re looking for,” said the president, a devotee of central casting.

Judge Gorsuch is no stranger to DC. While a high school student at $30,000-a-year Georgetown Prep, he founded the Fascism Forever Club. That certainly would get the alt-right nod from the Commander-In-Fact, Mr. Steve Bannon.

Mr. Trump handled the Big Reveal with the decorum he became known for in his beauty pageants and reality TV shows. Rumor had it that SCOTUS runner-up Judge Thomas Hardiman would come to DC to heighten the suspense, but it was just fake news back-channel hype.

The Pentagon Preps for Urban Growth

January 31, 2017

Growing megacities are breeding grounds for “adversaries and hybrid threats,” and the U.S. Armed Forces are unprepared, claims a video from the “Advanced Special Operations Combating Terrorism” course at the Joint Special Operations University. The privately-produced video, made public by The Intercept’s Nick Turse, is based on a 2014 Army report.

We’re surprised the footage wasn’t used by the Trump campaign.
