“… When I first heard about the indictments, I understood them to be one (D.C.) that dealt with events while McGonigal still worked at the FBI and one (New York) that dealt with events after he worked at the FBI. But as I noted last night, it’s not that clear cut. The relationship with Oleg Deripaska and a reputed former Soviet/Russian intelligence officer, Evgeny Fokin, began when McGonigal was still at the FBI.

The New York indictment is elusive about just what it’s suggesting about McGonigal and Fokin in 2018, when the former still worked at the FBI. It is also unclear about whether McGonigal was compromised by a foreign power or was simply building a relationship with Fokin and Deripaska for money he would make after he left the FBI.

Was he compromised by Russia? Or was he just compromised by Deripaska? Needless to say, there’s not necessarily a bright line separating these two scenarios.

The D.C. indictment includes a seemingly separate cast of characters. On its face, it tells the story of a foreign government (Albania) paying McGonigal to use his investigatory powers to harass a U.S. citizen that the foreign government had a beef with. It’s quite unclear whether these two alleged acts of corruption (New York and D.C.) were related to each other. On its face, or in a limited view, they suggest a senior FBI agent who wasn’t compromised by or in the pay of any one foreign power, per se, but simply dirty, ready to abuse his power for cash and seemingly ready to work with all sorts of people.

But last night Michael Beschloss noted a few connections which may be coincidences but are hard to ignore. He noted that in 2018 the Times reported that “the C.I.A. noticed in late 2010 that its spies were disappearing.”

“As fears of a mole grew, the government set up a secret task force,” the article continues. “A veteran F.B.I. counterintelligence agent, Charles McGonigal, was assigned to run it.” The FBI director at the time was Robert Mueller.

On Oct. 28, 2016, James Comey wrote a letter informing Congress that he was reopening the Clinton emails probe because of emails found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop in the separate investigation of Weiner. On Oct. 31, the New York Times published its notorious headline: “Investigating Donald Trump, F.B.I. Sees No Clear Link to Russia.”

These events, as Beschloss and I noted yesterday, came three weeks after James Comey announced he was putting McGonigal in charge of counterintelligence at the FBI New York field office. As I noted yesterday, however, the press release about McGonigal’s appointment stated he would “assume this new role at the end of October.” In other words, if we think Comey appointed McGonigal and a few weeks later these big bombs started going off, the timeline doesn’t really line up with that. It more suggests that McGonigal got started in New York right as these things were happening, and thus probably arrived too late to have been involved with them.

Of course, that’s not the only possible interpretation.

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Hunter Biden Was Receiving Classified State Department Briefings on Regular Basis – Used to Promote Biden Family Business


Atlanta cops collared 31-year-old Teresa Yue Shen — who also worked for hate-Trump CNN — on January 18, as they swept the forested land where “Cop City” will be built.

Leftist “forest defenders” had staged protests for some time, and last week during the clearing operation, a state trooper was forced to shoot and kill one of the radicals in self-defense.

Cops also found a cache of terror tools.

Shen is a “mental health consultant” who lives in Brooklyn, New York, the Daily Mail reported, whose “parents are high-flying businesspeople, with her father running a New Jersey-based Chinese media company and her mother a former British Foreign Office consultant.”

Shen was one of seven “protesters” cops arrested after the shooting of a “non-binary” crackpot called Manuel Esteban Paez Teran.

The George Bureau of Investigation reported that Shen and the following “protesters,” none of whom are from Atlanta or even Georgia, face domestic terrorism and other felony charges:

Geoffrey Parsons, 20, Maryland;
Spencer Bernard Liberto, 29, Pennsylvania;
Matthew Ernest Macar, 30, Pennsylvania;
Timothy Murphy, age, 25, Maine;
Christopher Reynolds, 31, Ohio; and,
Sarah Wasilewski, 35, Pennsylvania

Shen “was charged with domestic terrorism and aggravated assault of an officer, and was previously arrested during an anti-ICE demonstration at the Bergen County Jail in 2021,” the Mail reported.

China has the world’s second-largest economy. The Chinese Communist Party has a tight grip on every aspect of Chinese society. Some people say the CCP is too powerful to collapse and that China is too big to fall apart. Others argue that signs of the regime’s impending economic crisis are the writing on the wall. How bad is the Chinese economy? What will ultimately bring down the Chinese regime, and how do we measure it? One China expert in Taiwan Kenneth Fan offers his insight.

This piece got me thinking about two layers of nostalgia in the Fallout games. On the one hand, they are nostalgic for the late 1940s. On the other hand, many games drift into post-apocalyptic neo-cowboy fantasy. So the games are nostalgic for an open frontier with unlimited possibilities of personal adventure and aggrandisement. In Fallout 4, one can set oneself up as a kind of warlord ruling over a single settlement, or as a kind of “high king” ruling over a network of settlements — that is the post-apocalyptic verison of the “American Dream” of going from rags to riches.

That led me to an essay on the resonance of postapocalyptic fiction with the modern world:
