My time linked comments:
Eleanor says Chinese hackers have kept attacks low-level. I note the OPM hack (see my relevant 2015 National Review article)
Suggesting - half-seriously - that we should retaliate to Russian cyber-attacks by turning the lights off and on in the Kremlin
Why we must accept the fact that Baltic states are now NATO members and require collective deterrence. Also suggesting that NATO members must pay 2% GDP on defense
Asking where has socialism worked noting that Scandinavia is not proof of socialist success (see my 2016 article at Opportunity Lives on the myth of Scandinavian success)
FORCED PREDICTION: Will China accept Hague ruling on island construction in South China Sea: I join Pat's sardonic ''Good luck'' with a Bon Chance!

Independence Day 2: Resurgence has just been released. In the original 1996 movie, The McLaughlin Group taped two cameos. And now, thanks to my pushing (I'm very grateful to the cast/crew!!) we have taped another cameo for the sequel! It isn't in the movie, but it is a part of the viral campaign. The new cameo implies a taping date of early 2016 prior to the second invasion, and the cast are not aware a second attack is imminent. Anyway, click below for the new cameo! You can see me describing the obliteration of London in 1996 and suffering Pat Buchanan's assertion that I am a conservative traitor! HERE IT IS! Also see the YouTube link here, if Yahoo link doesn't load properly.

My time linked comments:
Orlando is not about guns but instead sociological issues. Why Daesh is able to recruit. Then exchange with Clarence about what I would do differently in anti-Daesh strategy and explaining its hard to pick between Trump and HRC! More thoughts on Daesh found here
Explaining US-UK AIIB tensions, paying tribute to Jo Cox, noting that Brexit seems likely, and why David Cameron may be replaced by Boris Johnson
Cameron criticized Trump because he thought it was highly unlikely Trump would become nominee. UK Embassy political officers probably in trouble for briefing in kind!
Trump is sociopathic, too many newspapers editorialize in reporting, Clinton's lying has not been challenged by media with sufficient zeal, and exchange with Pat on Trump's anti-free speech tendencies
FORCED PREDICTION: House will not authorize Senate vote to require female registration for selective service. I note that if women ever needed to be called up, we will have suffered millions of casualties
