Starting off with Jimmy Dore.

I like it when Jimmy does comedy.  :D

Tonight, SUPERMAN AND LOIS returned with a new episode.  We do get what C.I. said in Friday's gina & krista round-robin, right?  No one watched the Olympics.  And this was with CBS, NBC, ABC and THE CW sitting it out.  Only FOX offered new episodes of scripted shows.  

Even with nothing else to watch, people avoided watching the Olympics.  

So Lois found out that her partner in journalism, Chrissy, was meeting with cult leader Ally Allston (the one whose cult Lois' sister Lucy was a part of).  Before much can happen, Superman shows up but is quickly attacked by Doomsday.  Clark takes him to his half-brother's Fortress of Solitude (where the hologam of his mother lives).  

Meanwhile, Kyle has stepped out on Lana and the woman comes to him to tell him that their affair is known (remember, Lana's running for mayor).  

So it's Sara's big day, she's a woman and it's her party.  And when Kyle dances with her, she has to rush from the floor after making it clear that she heard what was discussed.  She knows he had an affair.  She runs outside.  Lana joins them and Sara demans that he tell Lana.  Lana quickly realizes that it's the woman from the bar that Kyle said he was just blowing off steam with.  She tells Sara that this is her day and she needs to focus on that.

Back in the hall, she gives a speech about what an amazing woman Sara has become.  

Jordan thinks Jonathan has powers but it's the steroids that his girlfriend is giving him (or I think that).  

Chrissy tells Lois that while she was checking Ally Allston out, Ally drugged her tea.  She saw another world.  In that world people feared Ally and she was destroying the world.

Lois goes to Sara's party.  She and Clark kiss before he darts off because Doomsday is awake.

With his mother's help, Clark speaks to Doomsday (Lara makes it so Clark can understand Doomsday's language) and finds out that he is on this earth to destroy Ally, that she destroyed his world and will destroy Clarks.  

It was a strong episode to return on.

By the way, be sure to read Ava and C.I.'s "TV: Some people court and deserve scorn."

This is from Finian Cunningham (INFORMATION CLEARING HOUSE):

This weekend marks Joe Biden’s first year in office since his inauguration on January 20, 2021, as 46th president of the United States. In that time, it’s quite staggering how rapidly relations have deteriorated between the U.S. and Russia on the one hand and China on the other.

Right now, Europe is on the cusp of a war breaking out between a U.S.-backed regime in Ukraine and Russia. The volatile situation has the potential to drag the U.S. and other NATO powers into a proxy war with Russia, if not a full-blown international military conflict that could escalate into a nuclear conflagration.

Washington’s baleful relations with Beijing have been eclipsed by the recent stand-off with Russia. But make no mistake, U.S.-China tensions have also been heightened with the attendant risk of war. Much of the tension has been increased by the Biden administration’s provocations towards China over the breakaway island province of Taiwan. Under Biden, U.S. arms sales to Taiwan have burgeoned as have the large-scale maneuvers of American military forces near Chinese territory – in the name of “freedom of navigation”.

Let’s rewind to Biden’s inauguration on that cold, sunny day of January 20 last year. There was the usual jamboree that often accompanies a new Democrat president. We saw it when Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were installed in the White House. Likewise, with Biden’s tenure, there were expectations of a more professional president, a more multilateral president, a more proficient president on foreign policy, and, dare we say, a more refined and law-abiding president. As usual, there was rosy rhetoric about how Biden would recover America’s international image that had been tarnished under his boorish predecessor, Donald Trump.

Biden declared over and over again that “America was back” as he took office. European leaders swooned at the prospect of again having an American ally who respected them. The expectation was that the “adults were back in control” of U.S. policy (whatever that’s supposed to mean) and that the feathers ruffled by Trump would be smoothed.

Strategic Culture Foundation can take pride in not having bought into any of the wishful thinking regarding a Biden administration. We predicted in several articles at an early stage of his presidency that international relations would take a serious turn for the worse under Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.
