Fauda the second time around is better than ever. Through episode six anyhow. Now blending the IDF elite force against Hamas, the Palestinian Authority and ISIS. With sometimes help from the PA which doesn’t want the competition. Nor, at times, does Hamas. So they fight each other.
“What distinguishes the series from a run of the mill tale of Good & Evil, is its ambivalence and its ever-changing perspective as the narrative switches back and forth between Israelis and Palestinians. That is its claim to originality and excellence…
“To begin, the protagonists look, walk, dress and speak the same, with Palestinians and Israeli switching smoothly from Hebrew to Arabic, and vice versa…It doesn’t require a subtle mind to get the subtext: Look how alike we are.”
Indeed, it’s easy, at times, to forget who the bad guys are. Well, for one on the outside looking in. One knows it’s not so simple on the inside.

What nonsense. Hollyweird. The Mediacrats. Laura Bush (!)
They all want open borders and will do anything to get them. Lie. Steal.
Stay the course, President Trump. They won’t love you even if you fold.
Author Keith Bowden’s superb writing is what carries this extraordinary story of mountain biking/raft- and canoe-cruising of the Rio Grande from El Paso in far west Texas to Brownsville on the Gulf of Mexico.
His encounters with riverside Mexicans, thanks to his fluency in Spanish, are fascinating. Although he had previously lost his young daughter to cancer, one likes to think her spirit was with him over the loneliest stretches of the river’s wilderness.
The urban sections of the river, from Laredo to Brownsville, are equally compelling thanks to his linguistic ability, but it’s the upper reaches of the river where he goes for days without seeing anyone that make the tale.
Jeff Bezos, the “richest man in history” according to Breitbart Tech news has been petitioned by more than 400 of his employees at the WaPo for better pay and benefits:
“All we are asking for is fairness for each and every employee who contributed to this company’s [improving] success: fair wages; fair benefits for retirement, family leave and health care; and a fair amount of job security,” the letter continued, adding, ‘Offering $10 a week in pay increases – or about 0.6 percent of the median salary and less than half the current rate of inflation – is unfair and even shocking from someone who believes democracy dies in darkness.’
“Working conditions at Bezos’ other company, Amazon, have also been criticized, with employees reportedly being worked to ‘exhaustion’ while trying to fulfill ‘impossible’ targets, and even urinating into bottles and trash cans for fear of being sanctioned over bathroom breaks.”
Wow. Liberal/lefty Bezos is a modern robber baron out to get/stay rich off the backs of his wage slaves.

“Current [FBI] Director Christopher Wray responded to the IG’s report at a press conference and promised there’d be consequences for bad behavior. But he also said, ‘nothing in this report impugns the integrity of our workforce as a whole or the FBI as an institution.’ Like hell it doesn’t. What the report describes is a morally bankrupt clown show, and the fact that Wray won’t admit that means the show goes on.”
Wray sounds like what federal Judge Amy Berman denied in sentencing former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort to jail without bail on far less important matters: “This isn’t middle school. I can’t take away your phone.”
Wray sounds just like a middle school teacher, not the head of the discredited clown show called the FBI. Fart, Barf & Itch, indeed!
After all, then-Obama FBI director James Comey was violating the law just like Hillary was: “While Comey was investigating Hillary Clinton for using her personal email to conduct State Department business, ‘Comey used a personal email account (a Gmail account) to conduct FBI business.’ (pg. 427)…”

UPDATE: President Trump told FoxNews that Comey’s having his own private, off-the-books email account for official business (just like Hillary) was not the most interesting item of the IG report but certainly “the funniest.”
