What Berlin really thinks

And what it and its people thought in complete and total delusion four years ago.

Trump echoes Noam Chomsky says Glenn Greenwald.

writes Ann Althouse. Unfortunately, Trump’s post was removed. Here it is:

It doesn’t make sense that Russia and Ukraine aren’t sitting down and working out some kind of an agreement. If they don’t do it soon, there will be nothing left but death, destruction, and carnage. This is a war that never should have happened, but it did. The solution can never be as good as it would have been before the shooting started, but there is a solution, and it should be figured out now—not later—when everyone will be DEAD!

Did Donald Trump just say that he will run for President in 2024?

From Althouse. He’s back.

“[A] Republican president will make a triumphant return to the White House. And I wonder who that will be? I wonder who that will be? Who, who, who will that be? I wonder.”

Said Donald Trump, near the end of his CPAC speech yesterday (transcript). 

There’s coy cuteness in the repeated “wonder” and the repeated “who”: “And I wonder who that will be? I wonder who that will be? Whowhowho will that be? I wonder.” It’s like the old doowop song:I wonder wonder who who who who…

Trump was four years of faint hope, failed promises and false narratives.

Oh, don’t get me wrong he was also entertaining as hell, did many things I fundamentally agreed with and accelerated the collapse of the biggest, most corrupt organization ever created in human history.

He made a mockery of the media, stood tall until the final days of his presidency against a self-congratulatory bureaucracy and forced out into the open the depths of the depravity of our ruling class.

I friggin’ love the guy for that.

But I’m also over it. It’s time to move on.

Today I feel no nostalgia for Trump or America 1.0.

I refuse to go into the same hysterical theatrics the Left did four years ago. Biden’s the president. The restoration is complete. He was selected no different than every president other than Trump since Reagan.

I have as much emotion for him as I had for Bush the Lesser, Clinton the Rapist or Obama the Enigma. …”
