Taibbi: Taking The Neither Pill

Taibbi: Taking The Neither Pill Authored by Matt Taibbi via TK News, Last Thursday, I sat in a studio in Newark for the above interview with Ben Shapiro. It was a wide-ranging and oddly friendly discussion between a former Breitbart staffer and the author of Andrew Breitbart’s mostly infamously obscene obituary, in which the fact…

WTI Extends Gains After Unexpected Crude Draw

WTI Extends Gains After Unexpected Crude Draw Oil prices are higher today following relatively positive news from China (easing some of its COVID quarantine restrictions), Macron-inspired doubts over the ability of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to significantly boost output, and unrest in Ecuador and Libya helped lift prices. “We’re in the crunch…

Where is Russia’s Fleet of Aircraft Carriers?

Given Russia’s stature as a near-peer competitor of the United States with interests in regions as far afield from Moscow as Latin America and Africa, one might expect that the Russian navy would have sea power tools similar to that of the United States to project power in support of those interests.
