I’d call that an offer the fedgov shouldn’t refuse: Assange will agree to be extradited to the U.S. if Manning is freed. Gutsy and honorable play on Assange’s part, too. When they tell you Russia hacked this or that, always remember … Greenwald does it again: best summation I’ve seen of the origins and methods of the deep state’s war on Trump. The Russian techie named in this week’s dirty dump says U.S. intelligence (sic) never contacted him. And the former British spy paid (by Dems and anti-Trump Repubicans) to dig up, or make up, the dirty dossier flees in…

I get invited (sort of) to Donald Trump’s Inauguration

Well, well. Lookee what I got: an invitation to Trump’s inaugural. Actually, it’s not mine; Reince Priebus (or the robo-mailing outfit of his choice) sent it to Commentariat member Comrade X, who gifted it to me. Alas, I received it after the RSVP date — though I suspect that if I returned it with a large enough check they’d let me in, regardless. That will happen after Satan’s next snowball fight. Note the price tags here: Yikes. $5,000 just to stay on the freakin’ mailing list; excuse me, I mean remain a vital member of the Chairman’s Advisory Board. Plus…

  • Merry Christmas! Really.
  • One Dem makes one last-ditch effort to stop Trump. (Note the Freudian slip that this newly elected D-WA congressthing is identified as “D-Seattle.” People in rural Washington know all too well the truth in that little goofsie.)
  • Perhaps not for thee or me, but one family’s thriving in its pretty cob house. Inside a geodesic dome. Within the Arctic Circle. (H/T MtK for this very impressive story)

  • Who’s the master and who’s the servant again? Texas school principle threatens to arrest parents who walk their kids to school or step foot on school grounds to pick up their kids. Apparently the local law enforcers are on her side. (More detail and parent reaction.) (H/T MtK)
  • Chortle. Larry Correia fisks another snotty HuffPo opinionator who thinks self-publishing is for dirty little losers.
  • The WaPo produces another hysterical fake news story (or at least a highly exaggerated news story). Hm. Guess that fake news stuff is really a problem after all.

  • You thought Sen. Joe Manchin was a traitor because he wants the feds to have power to prevent all gun transfers? So did I. But fact is, the man is too stupid to be a traitor.
  • That photographer in Turkey who captured the murder of the Russian ambassador was amazingly brave, dedicated, and good at his job. You can debate whether the photos were in good taste, but you can’t deny his sheer guts.
  • From Dana in comments: the story of Pinchas Rosenbaum, who disguised himself as a Nazi to save Jews in Hungary.

  • Sigh of relief. That damned election is finally, finally over. And of course Trump won. Despite death threats to electors. Despite Russians hiding under every bed. Despite the media being the media. Despite four out of 12 Washington state electors going rogue. And despite one valiant Texan casting an electoral college v*te for Ron Paul. Can we talk about something else now?
  • If you’e old and don’t want to die before your time get a female doctor, sez some new and highly sexist research. (Do you think NPR would be running this story if the research concluded that male doctors were superior?)
