Space Is Not A Global Commons

A Twitter thread from the U.S. representative to COPUOS.

Strzok’s Smirk

Yes, he’s lying, and yes, he’s filth. And so are the people not just defending him, but praising him.

Denying the obvious doesn’t make it go away. What was breathtaking about his performance was not that he claimed that the bias didn’t affect his behavior; it was his insane claim that the bias didn’t even exist.

[Sunday-morning update]

More from Melissa Mackenzie:

The creepiest witness to ever grace a Congressional hearing, minced in his seat and evaded questions for hours on end Thursday. His name? Peter Strzok (pronounced “Struck” for the Democrats on the committee who kept mispronouncing it). The general impression from his testimony? What a complete weirdo. It is astonishing that someone so strange, supercilious and seemingly evil reached so high a position in law enforcement.

As I tweeted a few weeks ago, I’d have a lot more confidence in Mueller if the people telling me about his probity and character weren’t the same people who told me that about Comey. I have to wonder how many other Strzoks, Pages, Ohrs, McCabes et al are at the agency. I think it needs a thorough housecleaning.

Unmasking Antifa

Three reasons it’s a bad idea.

I’m not sure he’s entirely serious.

What turns people into wicked punks while they no doubt continue to believe themselves to be decent and good? Bad ideas, that’s what, ideas that give people license to answer words and policies with terror. What’s the bad idea on the left? Control. The notion that the left’s cause is so righteous it needs to pay no mind to liberty but simply deserves to win by any means necessary. Let five judges on the Supreme Court make law and damn the “outdated” Constitution. Give unelected bureaucracies like the EPA the power to regulate people’s lives without appeal or oversight. Give ignoble gnomes like Peter Strzok the wherewithal to criminalize the political opposition. And of course, bring on the socialism: a philosophy that declares a person’s work, his time, his life, his property belong not to him but to the state. Control.

Yup.

Sarah Hoyt: The Left misunderstands the Constitution. Again.

[Late-afternoon update]

The power-hungry Left loses its cool. Though “power-hungry Left” is redundant.

[Late evening update]

Glenn has a good point on how Leftists become thugs. Maybe the causation goes the other way.
