PBS Hails Election As Win For Abortion, Defeat Of Putin, Xi, And Trump
When Washington Post associate editor Jonathan Capehart and New York Times columnist David Brooks joined PBS NewsHour host Judy Woodruff for their Friday recap of the week’s news, the natural topic of conversation was the election results.

Lemon Urges Clinton To Speak To The Threat To Democracy In America

The Left Bases Its Politics on the Toilet
Let us consider those angry Americans who make an issue over which public toilet they will use -- and, for that matter, which locker room and personal pronoun they prefer, etc., etc. These Americans do not believe that their choice of the toilet should be a matter of personal hygiene. Rather, they see it as a constitutional matter that ought to be brought before the Supreme Court. It probably…
Ruhle Mangles McCarthy's Words To Suggest He's Seeking Putin's Help
As the midterms approach, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is giving clues into how Republicans would govern should they win.

SICK: Politico Touts Putin as #1 on the 'Green Agenda' for Waging War
This is sick: Politico put Vladimir Putin #1 on its list of "power players behind Europe's green agenda." They began: "It took a war criminal to speed up Europe’s green revolution." How callous is this to all the people killed and maimed and displaced in this war?
Why Is Putin’s Army Inept?
WASHINGTON -- Whatever happened to the Russian Army? For that matter, whatever happened to the Russian Air Force or the Russian Navy whose flagship is now at the bottom of the Black Sea?

In the first 70 minutes of Friday's Morning Joe, the panel mentions no fewer than 17 times the need for an "off-ramp" for Putin in order to end the war in Ukraine. But no one advances a realistic scenario of what such an off-ramp might be.
MSNBC Suggests High Gas Prices Are A Saudi Plot To Help GOP In Midterm
MSNBC has an explanation for why gas prices are on the rise again and it’s not President Biden’s terrible foreign and energy policy. Ali Velshi guest hosted The Last Word on Thursday and together with journalism and political science professor Peter Beinart, he blamed Saudi Arabia’s decision to cut production as part of a pro-GOP, anti-Democratic Party conspiracy.
Should the West Seek an Off-Ramp in Ukraine?
How does the war in Ukraine end? This is precisely the question no one is supposed to ask these days. The supposition by our thought leaders seems to be that if we keep up the pressure on Vladimir Putin in Ukraine, he'll fold and go home; his threats to use tactical nuclear weapons on the battlefield are nothing more than saber-rattling. He will then retrench on the domestic front, resolidify…

MSNBC Admiral: Putin's Conscripts Are Like NYC Bartenders
On Morning Joe, retired Admiral James Stavridis, commenting on Putin's chaotic call-up of 300,000 conscripts, came up with a truly strange metaphor, saying: "This is like pulling a bunch of bartenders off of Fifth Avenue, and sending them out to the front lines. It's not going to work."
Unserious Leadership in a Serious Time
We live in a deeply serious time with deeply unserious leaders. Historian Niall Ferguson has written that the "extreme violence of the twentieth century" was precipitated by three preconditions: "ethnic conflict, economic volatility, and empires in decline." It is difficult not to see such preconditions repeating themselves in this century. The West is currently tearing itself apart over…
