This has been a very interesting week. Probably the biggest story is that the investigation into the origins of the Russiagate scam by William Barr’s hand picked man, U.S. Attorney John Durham, has expanded into a criminal investigation. That means that hostile witnesses can be subpoenaed, grand juries can be empaneled and suspects can be indicted and tried for crimes. I was starting to wonder if any action would be forthcoming but based on the panic on the Left I’m guessing this is the real thing. Speculation is that James Clapper and John Brennan are the first targets but real information will have to wait for the names of the subpoenaed witnesses before the guesses are meaningful.
I’m finishing up another of Anspach and Cole’s Galaxy’s Edge books. This one, Requiem for Medusa is not part of the main series. It takes place before the Battle of Kublar which is the beginning of the main sequence of the series. It involves an anciliary but memorable character, Tyrus Rechs whose origins tie him in with all the main threads of the saga. At this point in his career Tyrus is a bounty hunter, a wanted man, working outside the legal system. And the story is about vendetta for the murder of woman he loved. Now this is a little removed from the mil-sf that makes up the heart of the Galaxy’s Edge novels but the bounty hunter’s revenge story is suffused with the machinations and action associated with a military mission. When I finish it I’ll put up my review.
The Brexit battle is a story of betrayal by the traitorous Tories that joined the Remain movement and sold out their fellow Britons. Whether Johnson finds a way to get the general election called anytime soon is difficult to say. Up until now he’s been stymied in every direction by the conspirators in the Remain camp. One of the stranger aspects of this situation is that Macron of France could theoretically block an extension of the exit date. Because Macron is leftist scum, I highly doubt he would do anything as beneficial for our side but who knows. We’ll have to stay tuned on this one.
I’m enjoying the Star Trek reviews so far and the next episode is “Where No Man Has Gone Before,” which in addition to having the usual Shatner bufoonery is actually a good sci-fi story.
So there’s a preview of some stuff coming up but I predict lots of additional political drama and leftist imbecility will be on tap next week. Stay tuned.
