Pseudo-Random Thoughts

At First Glance, You May Think this cartoon is about a politician who is much in the news.

But if you look at the hair color, you'll see it isn't that specific.

The Montana Special Election:  RealClearPolitics has the basic numbers; Wikipedia has the numbers and the context, including a link to the 2016 election.
A special election was held on May 25, 2017, to determine the member of the United States House of Representatives for Montana's at-large congressional district.  The election was necessitated by Incumbent Republican Representative Ryan Zinke's appointment as United States Secretary of the Interior.  Zinke resigned on March 1, 2017, upon his confirmation.[1]  At around 10:30pm MST, the election was called for Greg Gianforte after 77% of the votes were counted.[2][3]
(Links omitted.)

In 2016, the Republican incombent, Ryan Zinke, won easily (285,358-205,919 votes, 56.2-40.6%); in this special election the Republican candiate, Greg Gianforte, lost ground (189,473-166,483 votes, 50.2-44.1%).

You can find, if you want to, many interpretations of those results; for now, I'll just note that Zinke is a better campaigner than Gianforte.

This Week's Collections Of Political Cartoons from Politico and RealClearPolitics.

My favorites:  In Politico, Mike Lester's "What Created Trump" and Nate Beeler's "Wailing Wall"; in RealClearPolitics, Gary Varvel's "Middle East Road to Peace".

(I probably should mention that my favorites are the cartoons that make me smile, or make an important point particularly well.  Usually I agree with them, too, but not always.)

"Loose Lips Sink Ships"  If you somehow missed that World War II propaganda poster, you can see copies here.

Now, would someone in the White House please make a copy of that poster for President Trump?
Pentagon officials are in shock after the release of a transcript of a call between President Donald Trump and his Philippines counterpart revealed that the US military had moved two nuclear submarines towards North Korea.

“We never talk about subs!” three officials told BuzzFeed News, referring to the military's belief that keeping submarines' movements secret is key to their mission.
In this instance, there probably wasn't any harm done, but it would be pleasant if Trump, for a change, would set a good example.

Five Flags Over Kirkland:  A business in this Seattle suburb uses these five flags to advertise its location.

Five flags over Kirkland

The first is the American flag, the second the Canadian flag, the fourth the British flag, and the fifth the Swedish flag.

If you haven't guessed what nation is represented by the third flag, here's a hint.

At one time, during the Korean War for instance, that flag would have drawn protests; now, Sotheby's thinks it is a good advertisement for their local store.

They are probably right, but I still find it a little disconcerting because it reminds me of all those tens of millions who died because of the actions taken by people following that flag..

Worth Reading:  This New York Times article, "Killing C.I.A. Informants, China Crippled U.S. Spying Operations".
The Chinese government systematically dismantled C.I.A. spying operations in the country starting in 2010, killing or imprisoning more than a dozen sources over two years and crippling intelligence gathering there for years afterward.

Current and former American officials described the intelligence breach as one of the worst in decades.  It set off a scramble in Washington’s intelligence and law enforcement agencies to contain the fallout, but investigators were bitterly divided over the cause.  Some were convinced that a mole within the C.I.A. had betrayed the United States.  Others believed that the Chinese had hacked the covert system the C.I.A. used to communicate with its foreign sources.   Years later, that debate remains unresolved.

But there was no disagreement about the damage.  From the final weeks of 2010 through the end of 2012, according to former American officials, the Chinese killed at least a dozen of the C.I.A.’s sources.  According to three of the officials, one was shot in front of his colleagues in the courtyard of a government building — a message to others who might have been working for the C.I.A.
We suffered a major defeat years ago, and we still don't know why.

Those who have followed the intelligence war between China and the United States in recent decades know that we have suffered a series of severe public defeats.   (I would like to think that we have some private victories, too, but couldn't tell you about any if I did know of them.)

When I read this article, the following question came to mind:  Why did the intelligence community decide to tell us about this defeat, now?  Let me re-phrase the question to emphasize the important part:  Why did the intelligence community decide to tell us about this defeat, NOW?

(Ordinarily, such revelations would be published formally fifty or more years after the defeat, not five years.)

It is possible to think of spooky spy reasons for these disclosures.  For instance, perhaps we have other, better networks in China, and we want to lull them into complacency.

But those seem less likely to me than this speculation:  The meeting between President Xi Jinping and President Donald Trump went very well, according to Trump, so well that I joked, privately, that it was kind of Xi to let Trump keep his pants and shoes.  If the intelligence community shared my sour view of the meeting, they might have decided that it was time to remind Trump — and the public — that China is not always our friend.

Britain's Home Secretary Isn't Happy with the American intelligence services.
Amber Rudd vented her frustration today over US leaks about details of the Manchester terror attacks.

The Home Secretary delivered a rare public rebuke to the American authorities by admitting she was 'irritated' by the way 'operational' information had been disclosed.

She said she had made 'very clear' to the US that such leaks 'cannot happen again'.

But the Cabinet minister's warning seems to have fallen on deaf ears - as both US and French officials have been revealing more details about the case.
She has a right to be unhappy, even publicly unhappy.  The revelations probably didn't spoil any police operations in Britain, but they might have.

(There's a significant error in the article; France is not a member of Five Eyes.)

"Everything We Know About Salman Abedi, The Manchester Suicide Bomber"  The Telegraph story doesn't have everything, of course, but it does have a lot.
The Manchester Arena suicide bomber had made trips to Libya as intelligence agencies combed his connections with al-Qaeda and Islamic State in his parents’ homeland.

Salman Abedi, 22, who was reportedly known to the security services, is thought to have returned from Libya as recently as this week.
. . .
Abedi born in Manchester and grew up in tight-knit Libyan community that was known for its strong opposition to Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s regime.

He had become radicalised recently - it is not entirely clear when - and had worshipped at a local mosque that has, in the past, been accused of fundraising for jihadists.
I haven't seen any statistics on it, but I believe European terrorists come, disproportionately, from second generation immigrants, from men who do not fit in their family's society, or the societies where they now live.

The article doesn't mention it, but I imagine the police are investigating who has been supporting him, and who paid for his foreign travel.  (His family doesn't appear to be wealthy — his father works as a security guard — and Abedi does not appear to have had full-time employment, at least not recently.)

By Now, We Should Have Learned to expect "false flag" claims after a terrorist attack.
A slew of Twitter users claimed that the deadly atrocity, which killed at least 22 people, could be a 'false flag'.

They included former X-factor star Steve Brookstein, who insisted there were 'dark forces' at work and suggested the 'military industrial complex' could be to blame.

Others said the 'timing' of the attack at the Manchester Arena was 'too convenient' and that the Conservatives had 'something to do' with it.
(Links omitted.)

If you look at the comments, especially the "worst rated", you'll find that there are people who agree with those claims.

Are Cuban Agents Keeping the Venezuelan Regime In Power?  That's what Mary Anastasia O'Grady implies in her latest column.
Venezuelan strongman Nicolás Maduro is responding to mass demonstrations by selectively killing civilians.  If, as a result, some branch of the military breaks with the regime, the country will descend into civil war.  But until then it’s a one-sided slaughter.

It’s also a Cuban proxy war.  More than a dozen high-ranking Cuban officers are said to be in Venezuela, along with thousands of Cuban intelligence agents.  Their job is to keep Venezuelan army officers under constant surveillance to prevent the feared military uprising to restore democracy.
There's more in the column about how the regime is increasingly using violence, but not more on the part the Cubans are playing in propping up the regime.  Moreover, "are said to be" is both weak and vague, the kind of thing you say when you don't have solid evidence.

(Or can't share that evidence.  It is possible that O'Grady has evidence from the CIA, the NSA, or some other intelligence organization that she was given on the condition that she say nothing about the source.)

Despite that lack of checkable evidence, I think it likely that O'Grady is right.  So far the police and the military have shown few signs of defections.  Given how incompetent the regime is in every other part of government, it makes sense to assume that competent Cubans are keeping the Venezuelan forces of repression intact.

For now.

For Some, This Little Study Will Support their opinions on journalists.
Journalists' brains show a lower-than-average level of executive functioning, according to a new study, which means they have a below-average ability to regulate their emotions, suppress biases, solve complex problems, switch between tasks, and show creative and flexible thinking.

The study, led by Tara Swart, a neuroscientist and leadership coach, analysed 40 journalists from newspapers, magazines, broadcast, and online platforms over seven months.  The participants took part in tests related to their lifestyle, health, and behaviour.
But if you read the whole article, you'll learn that journalists have some good qualities, and that Swart thinks they could think better if they took better care of themselves.

(Swart did not ask them about marijuana use, which is illegal in Britain.  I've been wondering for years whether that might explain some of the journalistic oddities we see on this side of the Atlantic.)
