Monday Assorted Links

1. British dude attempts to assassinate the Donald -epic fail

2. Multiculturalism killed Bernie

3. The Iraqi Kurdish Regional Government is not a committed anti-IS fighting force

4. The Iraqi Kurdish Regional Government is not a committed anti-IS fighting force

5. Syrian Army pushed back almost entirely from Raqqa Province and T3 airbase. This has happened at least twice before, with Russian help, but will the SAA ever learn? Why not try for Deir Hafir=more defensible?

6. Finally, a defense of the temporary Muslim ban

7. Trump’s Orlando speech, fact-checked by Politifact, but always trust your gut on this one; Politifact isn’t always accurate. I rated one of the claims they rate “Mostly True” as “False”.

8. Bob Murphy reviews Scott Sumner’s The Midas Curse. I’ve read the part up until the April 1933 recovery, which is apparently all I needed to have read, even though there’s more- way more.

9. Wise Latina cites Genius T. Coates

10. Various comments of mine on the IS, Blacks, and other stuff. But mostly the Islamic State and Blacks.
