Watch Ukraine: Behind the Crimean Bridge Strike

« The strike on the Kerch Strait Bridge was not a battle, » Eliot A. Cohen told The Atlantic, « but it was . . . the moment when the Russian elites began to realize that they were in losing” – and that will “accelerate the transformations within Russia’s political and military leadership already underway”.

Media watch: Sick dismissal of the horrors of fentanyl

A public service warning from several Republican senators about fentanyl disguised as candy drew only « snark and mockery » from Rolling Stone this month, reports Joe Concha of The Hill. “No Treats, Only Tricks: Republicans Trying To Ruin Halloween With Fake Rainbow Fentanyl Threat,” reads its headline. False threat?

Still, “Rolling Stone dismisses it all as hype,” Concha fumes. « One has to wonder if that kind of tone would be applied if the president or members of the Democratic Party had issued similar warnings. »

From right: No “ableism” in Fetterman’s Qs

“Minutes” after a television interviewer said that stroke-stricken Senate candidate John Fetterman was struggling to understand her, “the whole left took a new stance, denouncing any mention of his illness as an ‘ableist’ attack, » says David Harsanyi of the Federalist. But he is not « able to question whether a candidate running for the world’s most powerful legislative body » can « do his job » or why he cannot « answer basic questions from journalists without a subtitled transcriber ». “The rage-filled collapse of the left. . . has two purposes”: “to stifle any undesirable “narrative”” and “to deter future acts of journalism”. Why? Journos « knows that unwittingly aiding Republicans by engaging in acts of journalism will be met with wrestling sessions and condemnation of the people you seek to impress. »

Conservative: bidenflation makes everyone poor

« There are plenty of houses and apartments across the country, but good luck finding one that’s affordable, » EJ Antoni told The Washington Times, as « inflation and rising interest rates under the President Biden have made that nearly impossible. » These two factors « have impoverished the average worker in America by $4,200 a year ». Housing shows « how strained American families are today »: under Biden, « the median sale price of a home jumped to $372,000 and the interest rate more than doubled to 6, 29%”; « Housing affordability has already fallen by 32%. » And “the current destructive inflationary cycle is brand new” for young people.
